266th pope of the Catholic Church
This past weekend Pope Francis traveled to Marseille for a meeting of bishops and young people from around the Mediterranean basin, where he delivered a powerful message about integrating migrants into society. On this episode of “Inside the Vatican,” veteran Vatican correspondent Gerard O'Connell and host Colleen Dulle recap three major moments from the pope's visit, before giving a preview of three major Vatican events coming up in the next week: The consistory to create new cardinals on Sept. 30, the opening of the Synod on Synodality, and the release of Pope Francis' follow-up to “Laudato Si'”. The “Inside the Vatican” and “Jesuitical” podcast teams will be in Rome covering the synod in October!

A daily news briefing from Catholic News Agency, powered by artificial intelligence. Ask your smart speaker to play “Catholic News,” or listen every morning wherever you get podcasts. www.catholicnewsagency.com - Pope Francis' new document on the environment, to be released October 4, will be called Laudate Deum, which means “Praise God” in Latin. October 4 is also the first day of a monthlong assembly for the Synod on Synodality and the conclusion of the Season of Creation, a Vatican-supported ecumenical initiative about caring for the environment. Pope Francis had announced last month he would be releasing a follow-up document, the kind of papal document known as an “exhortation,” to the 2015 encyclical Laudato Si'. The theme of that encyclical, which means “Praise be to you,” is human ecology, a phrase first used by Pope Benedict XVI. The document addresses issues such as climate change, care for the environment, and the defense of human life and dignity. https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/255478/pope-francis-next-environmental-document-to-be-called-laudate-deum Pope Francis has awarded a UK church “co-cathedral status,” making it the first of its kind in Britain's history. The Church of Saint Mary of the Isle, located in Douglas on the Isle of Man, has achieved this rare status after Douglas was formally recognized as a city during the late Queen Elizabeth II's platinum jubilee celebrations in June 2022. The Isle of Man is a self-governing island situated between Great Britain and Ireland with a population of about 84,000 people. Saint Mary of the Isle will be co-cathedral along with Liverpool's Metropolitan Cathedral of Christ the King. The two cathedrals are 80 miles apart and are separated by the Irish Sea, but both fall within the Archdiocese of Liverpool. Co-cathedrals are a rarity in the Catholic Church and usually exist when two dioceses, each with its own cathedral, are merged, or when one diocese spans two different civil jurisdictions, as in the case of the Archdiocese of Liverpool. https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/255477/pope-makes-uk-church-first-co-cathedral-in-british-history Today, the Church celebrates Saint Vincent de Paul, the French 17th century priest known as the patron of Catholic charities for his apostolic work among the poor and marginalized. https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/saint/st-vincent-de-paul-607
It's been a year since Pope Francis officially apologized for the Roman Catholic Church's role in the abuses and forced assimilation of Indigenous people at Canadian residential schools. At the time, officials said it was an important step toward healing and reconciliation. But others said it was more important for the Church to take action in addition to rhetoric. We'll get different perspectives about the weight of the papal apology one year later. GUESTS Chief Wilton Littlechild (Cree), International Chief for Treaty Six and the former commissioner of the Truth and Reconciliation Commission of Canada Piita Irniq (Inuk), elder, residential school survivor, and Inuit cultural teacher Andrew Carrier (Métis), Red River Métis Government Minister for Residential & Day Schools Dr. Apooyak'ii, Tiffany Prete (Kainai [Blood Tribe]), assistant professor of sociology at the University of Lethbridge
Which is more influential, the culture or the Church? Man, it's not even close! How do we know? One crisp way: examine what church leaders are doing. Take Pope Francis, for example. Conservative life-long Roman Catholics are beside themselves with how Francis is either working around or apart from Church tradition. The reality is we are living in an era that mirrors the 16th century Reformation for its significance. I also suggest an approach for when you're in a debate. Finally I examine the a priori assumptions and methodology of the Jesus Seminar. Just who was Jesus as he was?

Mark Lambert, the author of a popular blog called De Omnibus Dubitandum Est and a regular on the Catholic Unscripted YouTube channel, returns to Merely Catholic to consider the plight of Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas, who in the summer was subjected to visitation after his alleged criticism of the conduct of Pope Francis on social media. In this 58th episode of the podcast series for The Catholic Herald, Mr Lambert joins Dr Gavin Ashenden to together reflect upon the extent that Bishop Strickland might be either a blessing or a curse in a pontificate which is leaving many Catholics all over the world increasingly perplexed.

Lawmakers on Capitol Hill are bracing for a government shutdown. Meanwhile, on the flight back to Rome from Marseille, Pope Francis condemned euthanasia and abortion. And a lawsuit in Illinois is taking a closer look at a measure that is concerning to pro-lifers.

Last week was such a time of high end times activity that we would be flagrantly remiss in our duties if we didn't bring you a recap of all the action that took place at the United Nations SDG Summit. In addition to all that, over in Europe, Emmanuel Macron who ditched the UN meeting was holding court with King Charles and Pope Francis. The Daily Mail UK reported that the pope was furious after being made to 'cool his heels' waiting for Macron to arrive. Ahh, the balance of power is already shifting, don't you love it? On this episode of the NTEB Prophecy News Podcast, the end times are ricocheting through our global society like BBs in a metal barrel, raising a literal cacophony of prophetical noise that amazingly goes unnoticed by the bulk of humanity. But for those of us with our radio dials set on KJB 1611, the news is received with stunning clarity. Agenda 2030 represents the New World Order in all its ignominious glory, and all the nations of the world showed up to bask in it. Everyone except Pope Francis, King Charles and Emmanuel Macron. Man, oh man, talk about your 'unholy trinity'! A smirking Bill Gates made a reel where he proudly displayed what's more and more becoming the logo of the New World Order, the 'rainbow wheel' of the UN Sustainable Development Goals Agenda 2030 Manifesto. On this episode, we rock your world with just how close we are to us being caught up into the clouds with Jesus, and everyone else caught in a web of end times hysteria.
Pope Francis pushed back against French President Emmanuel Macron and other leaders in Europe on Saturday, challenging them to open their ports to migrants. Francis went on to claim the continent is not facing a migration “emergency.” Funny how he says that while the Vatican, as a sovereign nation, does absolutely nothing to house migrants. Why is there a migration emergency? Well, just 8% of illegal immigrants to the European Union are women, meaning 92% of them are military-age males. It seems like those numbers indicate we aren't facing a migration emergency, but an invasion. We are importing the very forces that will eventually oust us from our own countries. In a speech, Joe Biden botched LL Cool J's name before calling him “boy” in a truly cringe-inducing moment. Eric Johnson, the mayor of Dallas, announced he is switching his party affiliation to Republican because “American cities need Republicans.” Hundreds of people who identify as dogs gathered in Berlin for a meetup, and you just have to see the footage.

Synodality is not always an easy thing to describe. But for Iván Montelongo, “It is so concrete. It means walking together, but it means accompaniment. It means being there for somebody else, just as the Lord himself has decided to walk with us, has become a man and lived our same life with our struggles, with our issues.” Iván Montelongo is a priest and canon lawyer serving in the Diocese of El Paso, Texas. Ivan was raised in Mexico but completed high school in the U.S. Though he was ordained in 2020, in the throes of Covid-19, he has already been called to significant responsibilities in his diocese: serving as vocation director, Judicial Vicar, and Synod coordinator. He is also one of only six U.S. delegates personally chosen by Pope Francis to participate in the upcoming Synod on Synodality in Rome this October. We're delighted to have Ivan on “Preach” this month, where we are focusing our efforts around the theme of “Preaching for a more synodal church.” Listen to Iván's homily for the Twenty-sixth Sunday in Ordinary Time on this week's episode of “Preach.” After the homily, he shares with host Ricardo da Silva, S.J.—a Jesuit priest from South Africa, associate editor at America and associate pastor at the Church of St. Francis Xavier in Manhattan—how he brings the spirit of synodality to his preaching.

A daily news briefing from Catholic News Agency, powered by artificial intelligence. Ask your smart speaker to play “Catholic News,” or listen every morning wherever you get podcasts. www.catholicnewsagency.com - Pope Francis condemned euthanasia and abortion as actions that “play with life” and said there is such a thing as “bad compassion” during a press conference aboard the papal plane from Marseille to Rome on Saturday. Aboard the plane, Pope Francis was asked by a French journalist whether he had spoken about euthanasia in his private conversation with France's President Emmanuel Macron earlier in the day. Francis said he did not address the topic of euthanasia with Macron on Saturday but that he had expressed himself “clearly” on the issue when the French president visited him at the Vatican last year. “Whether it is the law not to let the child grow in the mother's womb or the law of euthanasia in disease and old age,” he said, “I am not saying it is a faith thing, but it is a human thing: There is bad compassion.” https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/255459/you-don-t-play-with-life-pope-francis-condemns-euthanasia-abortion-on-papal-plane In Marseille on Friday, before a memorial to people lost at sea, Pope Francis said humanity is at a crossroads between fraternity and indifference regarding the migrant crisis. “We can no longer watch the drama of shipwrecks, caused by the cruel trafficking and the fanaticism of indifference,” he said September 22. “People who are at risk of drowning when abandoned on the waves must be rescued. It is a duty of humanity; it is a duty of civilization.” “On the one hand, there is fraternity, which makes the human community flourish with goodness; on the other, indifference, which bloodies the Mediterranean. We find ourselves at a crossroads of civilization.” The pope spoke during a meeting with local religious leaders at a memorial dedicated to sailors and migrants lost at sea on the first of a two-day visit to Marseille. The day after the pope's visit — and the concluding day of the encounter, Sunday, September 24 — is the World Day of Migrants and Refugees. The first quarter of 2023 was the deadliest since 2017 in the Central Mediterranean, with at least 441 people dying, though that's considered an undercount. https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/255451/pope-francis-in-marseille-it-s-a-duty-of-humanity-to-save-migrants-abandoned-at-sea Isabel Vaughan-Spruce, the woman twice arrested for silent prayer outside UK abortion clinics, has received a police apology and confirmation that she will not face charges for violating a local “buffer zone” protection order. Vaughan-Spruce is the director of March for Life UK and helps support women in crisis pregnancies. She has regularly prayed near abortion clinics for 20 years. https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/255453/woman-arrested-for-silent-prayer-at-uk-abortion-clinics-gets-police-apology Today, the Church celebrates Saint Hermann Contractus. He was born crippled and unable to move without assistance. It was an immense difficulty for him to learn to read and write, however he persisted and his iron will and remarkable intelligence were soon manifested. Upon discovering the brilliance of his son's mind, his father, Count Wolverad II, sent him at the age of seven to live with the Benedictine monks on the island of Reichenau in Southern Germany. He lived his entire life on the island, taking his monastic vows in 1043. Students from all over Europe flocked to the monastery on the island to learn from him, yet he was equally as famous for his monastic virtues and sanctity. Hermann chronicled the first thousand years of Christianity, was a mathematician, an astronomer, and a poet and was also the composer of the Salve Regina and Alma Redemptoris Mater – both hymns to the Virgin Mary. He died on the island on September 21, 1054. https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/saint/st-hermann-contractus-372

Founded by former President Bill Clinton and his wife, former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, the foundation put its annual “Clinton Global Initiative” on a hiatus for a few years when their relevance ebbed and fundraising dried up, but their scandal-plagued charity has returned with a plan to provide humanitarian relief to warn-torn Ukraine, complete with a benediction from Pope Francis.

The Biden administration is expanding and extending its temporary protected status order for Venezuela, allowing Venezuelans to work. This includes nearly half a million Venezuelans currently in the US. And, Poland's prime minister has said that Ukraine will no longer receive weapons because Poland is upgrading to more modern weaponry. This announcement comes on the heels of a dispute over economic protection for Poland's farmers as the country has banned the import of Ukrainian grain. Also, Pope Francis recently set off a firestorm among Ukrainian Catholics when he praised Russia's great past and culture. Ukrainian Greek Catholics, for whom the pope is a spiritual leader, would like to hear his support for Ukraine in the war against Russia. Plus, this Freetown mayor focuses on climate resilience.

A daily news briefing from Catholic News Agency, powered by artificial intelligence. Ask your smart speaker to play “Catholic News,” or listen every morning wherever you get podcasts. www.catholicnewsagency.com - Pope Francis extolled Wednesday the “apostolic zeal” of Saint Daniele Comboni, an Italian missionary priest and bishop who fought to end slavery in Africa. Comboni witnessed “the horror of slavery” as a missionary in the mid-19th century in what is now Sudan. Pope Francis shared the “energetic and prophetic” life story of the founder of the Comboni missionary orders during his general audience on September 20. “Saint Daniele testifies to the love of the Good Shepherd who goes in search of the one who is lost and gives his life for the flock. His zeal was energetic and prophetic in being opposed to indifference and exclusion,” Pope Francis said. https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/255422/pope-francis-lauds-catholic-saint-who-fought-to-end-slavery-in-africa Ethnic Armenians in the breakaway region of Nagorno-Karabakh, also known as Artsakh, have agreed to lay down their arms and dissolve their military forces following a short but intense Azerbaijan offensive on September 19. Pope Francis made a public appeal on Wednesday for both sides to “silence the weapons.” “I make my heartfelt appeal to all the parties involved and to the international community to silence the weapons and make every effort to find peaceful solutions for the good of the people and respect for human dignity,” Pope Francis said at the end of his Wednesday general audience. https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/255426/ethnic-armenians-surrender-and-disarm-following-azerbaijan-offensive At least 11 people were killed September 15 after members of the Islamic State attacked a village in Mozambique and opened fire on Christians after hand-picking them from Muslims, the Catholic pontifical and charity foundation Aid to the Church in Need (ACN) International reported. https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/255427/11-killed-as-islamist-jihadists-reportedly-target-christians-in-mozambican-village The International Society for Civil Liberties and Rule of Law (Intersociety) has condemned the September 16-17 kidnapping of more than 30 people across Nigeria's Enugu State, including a Catholic priest, and called on police officials in the Nigerian state to either act on the lack of security in the region or leave office. Father Marcellinus Obioma Okide was abducted September 17 on his way back to Saint Mary Amofia-Agu Affa Parish in the Enugu Diocese, where he serves as parish priest. A prayer appeal has been sent out for the priest's safe release. Okide is among dozens of people who were taken by armed Fulani bandits in separate locations within Enugu State. Intersociety challenges those in charge of security in Enugu to “retire voluntarily from the army and the police” if they cannot live up to what is expected of them. https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/255429/human-rights-group-to-nigeria-security-agents-after-priest-s-kidnapping-act-or-resign Today, the Church celebrates Saint Matthew, also known as Levi, an apostle of Jesus and, according to tradition, the author of one of the four Gospels. Surprisingly little is known for certain about Matthew's life, even though his Gospel is so crucial for the Church. The manner of Matthew's calling by Jesus is well-known — Matthew was a Jew, but worked as a tax collector for the Romans in Capernaum near the Sea of Galilee, making him a pariah among his own people. When Jesus called Matthew to follow him, Matthew gave up his presumably materialistic life as a tax collector to follow the Lord. https://www.catholicnewsagency.com/saint/st-matthew-apostle-601

If we are sincere Christians, we ought to have no fear of death. The only thing we should fear is the judgment of God. So why do so many alleged Christians seem far more terrified of earthly authorities than the decrees of God? Author and The Stream senior editor John Zmirak breaks down the psychology of fake, liberal Christians, and the obligation of authentic Christians to stand against tyranny no matter what the cost. John also offers some tough words for Pope Francis, discusses Christian inaction under Nazi Germany, and explores how the right to bear arms, far from being "un-Christian," flows directly out of historical Christian doctrine.Support the show: http://www.charliekirk.com/supportSee omnystudio.com/listener for privacy information.

SPECIAL GUEST Wisdom Wednesday Brother Andre Marie Follow Brother Andre on GAB and Twitter - @Brother_Andre His Excellence - Athanasius Schneider HEADLINE: On the Validity of the Pontificate of Pope Francis by Athanasius Schneider Sedevacantist - vacant chair, empty chair HEADLINE: The Popes and the Modern Crisis (on Sedevacantism) by Brother Andre Marie It is speculation, it has never been acted upon. It has not been enshrine in the doctrine of the Church. There is no authority to declare or consider an elected and generally accepted Pope as an invalid Pope. The constant practice of the Church makes it evident that even in the case of an invalid election this invalid election will be de facto healed through the general acceptance of the new elected by the overwhelming majority of the cardinals and bishops. Even in the case of a heretical pope he will not lose his office automatically and there is no body within the Church to declare him deposed because of heresy. Such actions would come close to a kind of a heresy of conciliarism or episcopalism. The heresy of conciliarism or episcopalism says basically that there is a body within the Church (Ecumenical Council, Synod, College of Cardinals, College of Bishops), which can issue a legally binding judgment over the Pope. The theory of the automatic loss of the papacy due to heresy remains only an opinion, and even St. Robert Bellarmin noticed this and did not present it as a teaching of the Magisterium itself. The perennial papal Magisterium never taught such an option. Every Bishop is a Pontiff - it literally means Bridge Builder. The Pope is the ROMAN Pontiff - How are they connected? They are connected based upon the limits of Papal Authority. John Paul II - you had moderate progressivist during this time. You can criticize these things today. This isn't the first Catholic Land Movement, it was tried before and failed. Angelus Press has printed a lot of this stuff - they were all writing and no one was actually farming. Collections of Integrity Articles - Sometimes Saints had great ideas that flopped. ReConquest - Episode 391: ‘Virtue is the Order of Love'
