November 23, 2016 World News Comments Off on Trump picks Nikki Haley and Betsy DeVos as first women for cabinet

US President-elect Donald Trump has appointed the first two women to his incoming administration. South Carolina Governor Nikki Haley was nominated as US envoy to the UN and Betsy DeVos as education secretary.

Obama Gives Presidential Medal of Freedom to Abortion Activists Bill and Melinda Gates

November 23, 2016 World News Comments Off on Obama Gives Presidential Medal of Freedom to Abortion Activists Bill and Melinda Gates

Longtime pro-abortion activists Bill and Melinda Gates today received the highest honor the Untied States can bestow upon a citizen who is not a member of the U.S. military. Obama today awarded two dozen recipients of the Presidential Medal of Freedom and those recipients included the abortion activists. The Presidential Medal of Freedom is “presented to individuals who have made especially meritorious contributions to the security or national interests of the United States, to world peace, or to cultural or other significant public or private endeavors,” and Obama apparently believes dedicating one’s life to promoting abortion is a part of th

November 22, 2016 World News Comments Off on Vatican Chief of Sacraments: No pope can change divine law on Communion

ROME, November 19, 2015 (LifeSiteNews) — On the heels of a statement by Pope Francis seeming to suggest openness to non-Catholic Christians receiving Holy Communion, the cardinal who heads the Vatican congregation dealing with the sacraments has said that there are preconditions for the reception of Holy Communion and when those conditions are not met, and the situation is publicly known, ministers of the sacrament “have no right to give him communion.” Cardinal Robert Sarah, prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, added, speaking of priests: “If they do so, their sin will be more grave before the Lord. It would be unequivocally a premeditated complicity and profanation of the Most Holy Body and…Continue Reading

Head of Greek Bishops Accuses Four Cardinals of Heresy, Apostasy, & Schism

November 22, 2016 World News Comments Off on Head of Greek Bishops Accuses Four Cardinals of Heresy, Apostasy, & Schism

The number of attacks on the four cardinals for their presentation of dubia on Amoris Laetitia are mounting rapidly. Two out of three of the new American Cardinals — Joseph Tobin of Newark and Cardinal Cupich of Chicago — spoke out just yesterday against the four cardinals. Tobin, described the dubia as “troublesome” and went on to say, The Holy Father is capturing the work of two synods, so if four cardinals say that two synods were wrong, or that somehow the Holy Father didn’t reflect what was said in those synods, I think that should be questioned. … just to simply reduce it to a ‘dubium,’ I think it is at best naive. Cardinal Cupich took a more direct line of attack:

Court battle looms over priests’ right to pick pupils for Catholic schools

November 20, 2016 World News Comments Off on Court battle looms over priests’ right to pick pupils for Catholic schools

The Catholic church is taking the government’s schools admissions watchdog to the high court to protect the rights of priests to determine whether pupils are eligible for a place on the basis of their faith. The schools adjudicator ruled earlier this month that a new policy across all Catholic schools under which priests certified on a pupil-by-pupil basis whether they were from a “practising [Catholic] family” was unfair. The ruling followed a complaint from a parent hoping to

November 18, 2016 World News Comments Off on Judge: Archbishop Fulton Sheen’s remains can be moved to Peoria

A New York judge has ruled that Archbishop Fulton Sheen’s remains can be moved to Peoria immediately. The Thursday ruling, by Justice Arlene Bluth, directs the Archdiocese of New York to cooperate in relocating the remains. Patricia Gibson, attorney for the Peoria Diocese, says she will begin that process Friday, part of an an ongoing campaign pushing for sainthood for Sheen. “In our mind, it’s a classic David-versus-Goliath victory,” Gibson said. “… We hope (the relocation of remains) can happen before Christmas.” Sheen’s remains would be interred in a marble crypt to be built near the
