Church Militant’s mission is to provide Catholics with authentic Catholicism so they can resist the destruction of their faith caused by the false Gospel being preached by bad shepherds in the Church of Nice.

Pope John Paul II warned of this false church in a 1976 speech he gave in Philadelphia while still a cardinal. In chapter 10 of his book Resistance, Michael Voris recounts these sobering words of then-Cdl. Karol Wojtyła: read more

Cdl. Burke to Offer Pontifical Mass at Wisconsin Shrine by David Nussman  •  ChurchMilitant.com  •  November 29, 2017 LA CROSSE, Wis. (ChurchMilitant.com) – Cardinal Raymond Burke will offer Pontifical High Mass on Sunday, December 10. The Mass will be at the Shrine of Our Lady of Guadalupe in La Crosse, Wisconsin, at 9:30 a.m.

The date of the Mass is between the Feast of the Immaculate Conception on December 8 and the Feast of Our Lady of Guadalupe on December 12. (The Feast of the Immaculate Conception is a Holy Day of Obligation.)

Dubia, from the Latin for “doubts” or “questions,” refers to a document submitted to the Holy See asking for theological clarity on a handful of questions; in this case, the questions refer to ambiguities in Amoris Laetitia. read more

Regarding Extension of Martial Law – Bishop Edwin de la Peña’s Official Statement

Posted by  | Nov 26, 2017 |     

One of my recent interviews with Radyo Veritas was picked up by several news organizations, some of which made it appear that I am supporting the extension of the Martial Law in selected areas. To be consistent with the Church’s stand and with the general sentiment of our Maranao brothers and sisters, I would like to offer a clarification:

During the first Marital Law declaration on 23 May, 2017, my stand was clear: that is should not be for the whole Mindanao, but for Marawi. read more

Bp. John Gaydos pushed LGBT agenda in Jefferson City diocese

JEFFERSON CITY, Mo. (ChurchMilitant.com) – After a passionate battle over Bp. John Gaydos’ commitment to a pro-gay policy, Catholics are hopeful for the diocese’s vitality with the appointment of a new bishop.

Announced Tuesday by Abp. Christophe Pierre, the apostolic nuncio to the United States, Pope Francis accepted the resignation of Bp. John Gaydos — one year earlier than the mandatory retirement age of 75.

“Many of you may be surprised by the timing of the appointment of our new bishop,” Bp. Gaydos said at a press conference on Tuesday. “I am extremely grateful and relieved and I would like to take a moment to assure you that this announcement comes at the end of several months of prayer, reflection and consultation.” read more

ROME, November 22, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — One week after Cardinal Raymond Burke made a “final plea” to Pope Francis for clarity regarding the Church’s moral teaching and sacramental practice, another cardinal has said “a clarification is in order.”

Cardinal Janis Pujats, Archbishop Emeritus of Riga in Latvia, and president emeritus of the local bishops conference, said in a recent interview with La Fede Quotidiana that while he believes the debate regarding Amoris Laetitia will eventually be resolved, one thing seems clear: “The mentality underlying the text is too liberal. Today, I see a certain relaxation of Catholic morality and above all of what are called non-negotiable values and principles.” read more

LONDON, U.K., November 22, 2017 (LifeSiteNews) — A U.K. Cardinal appointed by Pope Francis has given his blessing for a pro-homosexual organization to once again work in his archdiocese after his predecessor banned it because of its overt promotion of homosexual behavior contrary to Catholic teaching.

In a communication a little over a week ago to priests in the Archdiocese of Westminster, Cardinal Vincent Nichols recommended that they make use of the organization Quest to minister to “those who live with a same-sex attraction and are often very anxious about their journey to God and their relationship with the Church.” The letter was leaked to LifeSiteNews. read more
