A few days back the Vicar of Christ, Pope Francis, gave an interview to Il Messaggero.

Finigan describes the situation.  A … Continue reading

Are you watching what some people have called the “invasion” taking place across the border from Mexico into these USA (aka “provincias pérdidas”)?

ISIS terrorists call all Muslims next to “conquer Rome”

ISIS leader Abut Bakr Al-Husayni al-Qurashi al-Baghdadi, days after announcing the formation of an Islamic caliphate in Syria-Iraq, announced that Rome must be conquered.

Francis latest interview. Feminists won’t be pleased.

The Holy Father had an interview with the Italian daily Il Messaggero.  It isn’t all that revelatory and I suspect that not too many people will be excited about it.

By now you will have heard that Jozef Wesolowski, an Archbishop and the former Nuncio to the Dominican Republic, has been laicized. It is not known exactly where he is at the moment, I believe.

We’ve see this movie before, and it ain’t The Bells of St. Mary!

The Fishwrap (aka National Schismatic Reporter) is having a spittle-flecked nutty about the upcoming Synod’s Instrumentum Laboris.  Ho hum.

Special Treatment in Manhattan: “Where is the charity for this priest?”

Even the New York Times (usually aka Hell’s Bible… but not today!) has taken notice of what is going on in New York City with the parish of Holy Innocents in midtown Manhattan’s Garment District.
