“The mafia is ours, Made in Italy,” Pope Francis stated on Saturday, infuriating Italians!
During a speech last Saturday, while receiving a delegation of students, teachers, and parents of the San Carlo Institute, a high school in Milan, Italy, on the occasion of its 150th anniversary, the Jesuit Pope shocked and angered Italy once again.
The Pope engaged in a Q&A session, and at one point after justifying his own Communist values by saying “This is not Communism, but the teaching of Jesus” he went on to shock the audience by saying that migrants are not criminals, and the Mafia was not invented by Nigerians.
Pope Francis, in typical Godfather style fashion, stated,” The mafia is ours, made in Italy: it is ours,” adding, “We all have the chance to be criminals.” He went on to say that, on the contrary, migrants bring us riches, a statement that made many Italians furious! Read the rest here
Nuns sexually abusing minors could become next Catholic Church scandal, experts say
It wasn’t until Rev. Cait Finnegan gave birth to a baby girl more than three decades ago that the full trauma of all she had withstood was fully unleashed.
“It was my protective instinct, I just didn’t want my daughter to be alone. I stayed with her from the day she was born,” Finnegan, 67, a Catholic school student in 1960s New York and once an aspiring nun, told Fox News. “Because I had been abused in many places to many degrees. This was every day in school, weekends, she would come to my home.”
Starting at just 15, Finnegan alleged that she was repeatedly raped by a Catholic nun and for years, after finally escaping, lived a life on the edge of falling apart. She said she spent much of her life trapped in a state of rage, depression, and agoraphobia, unable to leave the house or be away from her daughter, now 36.
They lived in poverty as Finnegan said she was only able to take on odd jobs at night, as her marriage strained under the emotional weight.
“When my daughter was 12, we thought it would be good to register her at a Catholic School,” Finnegan recalled. “But then the nun opened the door, I had a flashback, I grabbed her and ran.” Read more here
The Vatican takes heat after pope keeps worshipers from kissing ring
Pope Francis greeted the faithful at St. Peter’s Square on Wednesday and allowed nuns and priests to kiss his papal ring during his weekly audience without a hitch, a likely relief to a Vatican encountering sharp criticism this week.
The Vatican came under fire from some Roman Catholics after images showed Francis repeatedly pulling his hand away from worshipers who leaned down to kiss his papal ring Monday in Loreto, Italy. In addition, the all-female staff of the Vatican’s women’s magazine resigned, alleging editorial interference from their male boss.
Some Catholics said the so-called baciamano is a sign of respect paid by the faithful to the church, not only the pope.
“Is it possible that the pope does not understand that the people who wish to kiss his ring wish to honor St. Peter and not him?” priest Dwight Longenecker, pastor of Our Lady of the Rosary Church in Greenville, S.C., wrote on his blog. “If he does not, then it would seem that he has not learned one of the basic lessons that every priest should learn — that it’s not all about him.”
Reactions posted on the conservative Catholic website Lifesite News went so far as to describe Francis’ behavior as “demonic” and “mentally unhinged.” Some Catholics are already angered by Francis’ mercy-before-dogma papacy and his push to allow divorced and civilly remarried divorcees receive Communion.
The Vatican did not comment on the images of the pope in Loreto. Read more here
Pope Francis Praises Multiculturalism: ‘Migrants Always Bring Riches’
Pope Francis continued his immigration crusade this weekend, saying that migrants bring with them the wealth of a multicultural and multi-ethnic world.
“Let us thank God for a multi-ethnic and multicultural society,” the pope told students and faculty of the San Carlo school of Milan gathered in the Vatican Saturday, “because dialogue among cultures, persons, and ethnicities is richness.”
“We must not be afraid of the water of life, of this multiethnicity, of this multiculturalism,” Francis said, “and here I touch on a sore topic: don’t be afraid of migrants.”
“Migrants are those who always bring us riches. Europe itself was made by migrants! The barbarians, the Celts…,” he said. “All these came from the north and brought their cultures with them. Europe grew in this way, with the contrast of cultures.”
In his off-the-cuff address, the pope seemed to continue a discussion from last week in which he attacked U.S. President Donald Trump over his proposed border wall. Asked by a reporter what he thought of Trump’s wall, the pope warned that “builders of walls, whether they are of razor-wire or brick, will become prisoners of the walls they build. That’s history.” Read more here

Catholic governor signs assisted suicide law ‘after careful prayer’
Trenton, N.J., Apr 15, 2019 / 03:45 pm (CNA).- New Jersey Gov. Phil Murphy signed a bill to authorize medically assissted suicide into state law on Friday.
Murphy signed the Medical Aid in Dying for the Terminally Ill Act into law on April 15, as one New Jersey bishop pledged to continue to oppose the “dangerous” new law.
The act was passed by the New Jersey legislature in late March, with bipartisan support. The new law will allow those deemed by a doctor to have less than six months to live to request lethal medication to end their lives. The patient then must administer the medication themselves.
In signing the bill, Murphy, a self-described “lifelong, practicing Catholic,” remarked that while he was aware that the Church opposed assisted suicide he was signing the bill into law regardless.
“After careful consideration, internal reflection, and prayer, I have concluded that, while my faith may lead me to a particular decision for myself, as a public official I cannot deny this alternative to those who may reach a different conclusion,” said Murphy.
“I believe this choice is a personal one and, therefore, signing this legislation is the decision that best respects the freedom and humanity of all New Jersey residents.”
Bishop James F. Checchio of Metuchen condemned the governor’s decision. Read more here
Georgetown University Jesuits forced to compensate descendants of Jesuit-sold slaves
n 1838, Georgetown University President Fr. Thomas Mulledy, S.J., sold 272 slaves for $115,000, to pay off university debts and keep Georgetown from closing. More than 175 years later, student protests urged the Jesuit-run university to confront its evil history, challenging the names of Mulledy and McSherry Hall, but also advocating institutional changes to address current concerns. At the end of this year of confrontation and reconciliation, the conversation has only just begun. Students at Georgetown University voted overwhelmingly last week, to pass a referendum that would create a new student fee each semester in order to create programs to benefit the descendants of the 272 slaves the Maryland Province of Jesuits sold in 1838.
“The results of the referendum are as follows: 66.08% for yes (2541 votes), 33.92% for no (1304 votes). This means that the referendum passes,”tweeted the Georgetown University Students Association Election Commission on Thursday evening. According to the GUSA Election Commission, 57.9% of Georgetown students voted in the election. The money raised by the fee would “be allocated for charitable purposes directly benefiting the descendants of the GU272 and other persons once enslaved by the Maryland Jesuits,”according to the text of the referendum. The fee would be $27.70 per semester. If the fee were to be implemented, it would raise over $400,000 a year from undergraduate students.
However, the fee cannot be officially created until it is approved by Georgetown University’s Board of Trustees. The referendum in question was sponsored by the GU272 Advocacy Team, which is named after the 272 slaves who were sold to Louisiana by Fr. Thomas Mulledy, S.J.
The sale of the slaves earned the province about $500,000 in today’s money, and was able to keep the Jesuits and their prestigious university out of bankruptcy. It ruined hundreds of lives, tearing families asunder, while condemning men, women, and children to an existence of cruel bondage. The Jesuits of Georgetown only repented in 2017, when the school issued a formal apology to the descendants of the slaves in a reconciliation service, and renamed a building on campus after Isaac Hawkins, one of the people sold.

If you go to the store to buy Meat, don't run to the Milk section or the Junk Food aisle looking for it!!
The Meat Section is the True Gospel of Jesus Christ.
The Milk Section is likened to those who will not preach on sin and Hell, just a feel good message, the Social gospel.
The Junk Food Isle is the outright false doctrine AKA the prosperity gospel, name it and claim it, the Hebraic Roots movement and other false teachings!!
Feasting on just Milk and Junk will eventually cause you great harm, you can count on it!!
