The Return of the Antichrist, by Regis Martin 

By Regis Martin, Crisis Magazine – Who is the Antichrist and how will we recognize him when he comes? Will he be driving a new car? A Tesla, perhaps?… the fact (is) that he is a liar. Like his father in Hell, he has been a liar from the beginning. And what he lies about is Jesus, whom he will not acknowledge as the Christ because to do so would amount to an admission that God has indeed come in the flesh in order to save us from people like him…

Msgr. Charles Pope: Improving the Prayer of the Faithful

By Msgr. Charles Pope – They have been called by many names: the prayer of the faithful, the general intercessions, and now most commonly the universal prayers… But they are not the prayers of the faithful since they are usually written by an individual. They are really general intercessions, since they are often rather specific, and they are not universal in the sense that they are, by necessity, particular. ….

Is Pope Francis the First Pro-Trans Pontiff in History? by John-Henry Westen

By John-Henry Westen, LifeSiteNews – Is Pope Francis the very first pro-trans pope?.. Pope Francis called a group of grown men “girls” — all because they have chosen to self-identify as women..

Communism is a Religion, and It’s Rising Again From the Ashes, by Mark Judge

By Mark Judge, The Stream – I was wrong. I thought communism was dead… Communism in fact never died, despite the collapse of the Berlin Wall in 1989. In fact, communism may be the instrument that God uses to humiliate and purge a wicked, godless and liberal West… How I was so wrong about communism became clear when I recently read Arch. Fulton Sheen’s Communism and the Conscience of the West ….

Having The Courage! by Tom Renz, Esq.

By Tom Renz, Esq., America Out Loud – What is courage?… we have to understand that courage is not the absence of fear; rather, courage is the willingness to stand in the face of fear. Courage cannot exist absent fear, and so courage is an inherently difficult trait to demonstrate. It is only when we stand strong in the face of difficulties, the unknown, adversity, or pain that we show courage ….

Would a ‘Climate Emergency’ Open the Same Door to Authoritarian Governance as the ‘COVID Emergency?’, by W. Aaron Vandiver

By W. Aaron Vandiver, Children’s Health Defense – In Feb. 2022, 1,140 organizations sent Pres. Biden a letter urging him to declare a “climate emergency.” A group of U.S. Senators did the same, in October 2022, and a House bill, introduced in 2021, also called on the president to “declare a national climate emergency under the National Emergencies Act.”… Biden has … (so far) has declined, to the disappointment of many progressives… The United Nations (U.N.) has urged all countries to declare a climate emergency.

Exhausted by Intractable Evil? Our Lord Has Already Won. by Dr. Jeff Mirus 

By Dr. Jeff Mirus, Catholic Culture – The logical follow-up to my commentary last Friday on Tragi-comic news is a more serious consideration of the intractability of evil. For if we are honest, we understand that the sheer weight of evil in this world cannot be thrown off by human means. We will beat our heads against the proverbial wall of evil only to find that, when we have finished, we have not managed to visibly reduce the amount of evil in the world. At best we can suggest to ourselves that there would have been even more evil if we hadn’t tried.

 Fr. Shenan J. Boquet: A Demographic Crisis

By  Fr. Shenan J. Boquet, Human Life International – A few weeks ago, the prime minister of Japan had a startling message for his citizens. The country, said Fumio Kishida during a speech to lawmakers, is “on the brink of not being able to maintain social functions.”… The reason for this dire warning? The country’s rock-bottom birth rate… the nation’s measly birth rate of 1.3 children born per women, far below the replacement rate of about 2.1 children per woman.

Joe Biden Celebrates Abortion in State of the Union Address, by Steven Ertelt

By Steven Ertelt, LifeNews – Joe Biden celebrated abortion on Tuesday night during his State of the Union address — and trashed pro-life states that are working hard to protect babies from abortions… “Congress must restore the right the Supreme Court took away last year and codify Roe v. Wade to protect every woman’s constitutional right to choose,” Biden said. “The vice president and I are doing everything we can to protect access to reproductive health care and safeguard patient privacy.”

Catholic Social Teaching, Revisited, by Robert W. Shaffern

By Robert W. Shaffern, The Catholic Thing – Much intra-Catholic squabbling these days ignores the prescriptions of Catholic Social Teaching (CST), which is often thought to have originated with Leo XIII’s Rerum Novarum. Catholic writers, however, addressed issues of justice and equity from the beginning. The Acts of the Apostles records that the community cared for the needs of poor Christians, and the Church Fathers and medieval canonists further discussed how best to serve the needs of the unfortunate.

The Marriage/Parenthood Disconnect, by John M. Grondelski 

By John M. Grondelski, Crisis Magazine – As Catholics observe “National Marriage Week” on February 7-14, we should be concerned about a growing trend to separate marriage and parenthood—because it is fundamentally reshaping the cultural idea of marriage in ways foreign to Catholic thought… Yes, Catholic theology admits that marriage and parenthood are conceptually separate realities. Yes, post-menopausal septuagenarians can marry validly.

A Cure Worse than the Disease; Historic COVID Death Crossover, by Dr. Joel S. Hirschhorn

By Dr. Joel S. Hirschhorn, America Out Loud – Critical thinking is used to see the big picture that has profound importance… Though I take pride in focusing on data, sometimes it is critical to step back and identify the big-picture generalization that tells the most important story. A story that the public needs to be made aware of so that it better understands all the corruption and propaganda that has created the highest level of misinformation from official sources.
