Globalist’s Agenda: The Great Reset: Davos & the Plot to Cancel Trump (Watch), by Michael J. Matt

By  Michael J. Matt, Editor, Remnant TV – From the Editor’s Desk, Michael Matt takes a look at some good news regarding the Covid recovery rate before he explores what’s really going on with the global pandemic… To understand what’s really happening here, he takes us to Davos, Switzerland—to the World Economic Forum—where the movers and shakers of the world have been meeting on a regular basis, especially since January 2020, to discuss the “opportunity” for a ‘global reset’ at the Davos 2021 Summit.

Alexandria Ocasio Cortez: The New Face of the Church, Versus Its True Face, by Jason Jones and John Zmirak

By Jason Jones and John Zmirak, Senior Contributors to The Stream – Last week, a writer at the leftist magazine The National Catholic Reporter called Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez the new face of the Catholic Church. Of course, her support for abortion right up through birth and same sex marriage raises some immediate questions in our minds. But before we consider those points, let’s step back for a moment.

Saint of the Day for August 8: St. Dominic (Aug. 8, 1170 – Aug. 6, 1221)

By Franciscan Media – If he hadn’t taken a trip with his bishop, Dominic would probably have remained within the structure of contemplative life; after the trip, he spent the rest of his life being a contemplative in active apostolic work… Born in old Castile, Spain, Dominic was trained for the priesthood by a priest-uncle, studied the arts and theology, and became a canon of the cathedral at Osma, where there was an attempt to revive the apostolic common life described in Acts of the Apostles.

State Dept. Commission Cites Religious Freedom as ‘Foremost’ Among Rights, by Lauretta Brown

By Lauretta Brown, EWTN News – The Commission on Unalienable Rights, an advisory committee formed last year to provide the U.S. State Department with advice that grounds an understanding of human rights in the nation’s founding principles, released a draft report last month that highlighted religious liberty alongside property rights as being of fundamental importance… However, the report has prompted backlash from an array of organizations and religious representatives that support progressive political agendas, who criticized the report’s emphasis on religious liberty.

Our Culture is Attempting Suicide, by Phil Lawler

By Phil Lawler, Catholic Culture – Pope John Paul II was the great diagnostician of the “culture of death.” He showed us how the uglier trends in the Western world—the legalization of abortion, the breakdown in marriages, the trend toward euthanasia, the acceptance of aberrant sexuality—were produced by a steady erosion of respect for human life. By embracing contraception and divorce, our society first severed the link between sex and procreation, then invented the fiction that a permanent union can be broken without disastrous consequences.

Trump Slammed by Democrat for His Actions to Protect Unborn Baby Girls and Boys, by Micaiah Bilger

By Micaiah Bilger, LifeNews – Sen. Tammy Duckworth slammed President Donald Trump as anti-woman Friday because of his actions to protect unborn babies and mothers from abortion… In a column at Elle magazine, Duckworth, a pro-abortion Democrat from Illinois and a top contender for Joe Biden’s vice presidential running mate, urged Americans to vote against Trump in November.

Ideology Makes You Stupid, by Anthony Esolen

By Anthony Esolen, The Catholic Thing – In a recent editorial, Heidi Schlumpf, editor of the National Catholic Reporter, suggests that Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez (D-NY) is the “future of the Catholic Church.” Her encomium was inspired by the congresswoman’s expression of outrage, after a Republican congressman had referred to her by a commonplace obscenity, muttering as he made his way down a hall.

The Real Damien of Molokai, C.C. Pecknold

By C. C. Pecknold, First Things – In the eyes of many, Fr. Damien is merely “a white man.” But the flattened image that Rep. Ocasio-Cortez says honors “colonialism,” “patriarchy,” and “white supremacist culture” is not the real Damien. The congresswoman’s narrative, filled with its own curious form of hate, dehumanizes the man who exemplifies what it means to cherish human dignity. Her woke resistance is resistance to reality. The real Damien, St. Damien of Molokai, points us to a superior resistance that doesn’t deconstruct reality, but rather reveals it.

5 Things Catholics Should Know About First Fridays, by Philip Kosloski 

By Philip Kosloski, Aleteia – Learn about devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus and the graces that come from observing First Fridays… It is no wonder, therefore, that our predecessors have constantly defended this most approved form of devotion — the pious devotion of the faithful toward the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus [and] the custom of receiving Holy Communion on the first Friday of every month at the desire of Christ Jesus, a custom which now prevails everywhere.—Pope Pius XI Miserentissimus Redemptor
