ROME, April 3, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Pope Francis has further clarified his controversial statement issued in Abu Dhabi, in which he appeared to state that God “wills” the existence of many religions. This appears to contrast with the traditional doctrine of the Catholic Church, which teaches, in the words of the Second Vatican Council, that the “one true religion subsists in the Catholic and Apostolic Church, to which the Lord Jesus committed the duty of spreading it abroad among all men.” The informal clarification came at today’s general audience, as the Pope reflected on his recent trip to Muslim-majority Morocco. In unscripted remarks, he said to pilgrims gathered in St. Peter’s Square:

I’m glad to be here tonight for two reasons.  First, I admire — greatly admire — the Josephinum and the men it produces.  The Church needs you because we urgently need more good priests, men of prudence and charity, but also of spine and courage, who understand the changing terrain of our times.  In my life, the priesthood has been a deep source of joy and purpose, the gift of knowing with certainty why God made me.  But it’s not a life for the weak or the lukewarm.  Especially now. My second reason is this.  Cardinal Pio L

By REY FLORES It is finally here. After a few years of rumors and speculation, fundraising, and some resistance from the filmmaking industry, Unplanned made its world premiere at the historic Grauman’s Chinese Theatre in Hollywood. We must see this as a huge victory for the pro-life movement in the sense that despite all of the secular culture’s love of abortion, here we are in 2019, premiering an anti-abortion film in the Devil’s own backyard. As with her book, the movie tells the true story of Abby Johnson, a young woman who herself had gone through a difficult relationship, a relationship that included two abortions. She also played a number of roles at Planned Parenthood, everything from a volunteer, to…Continue Reading

LOS ANGELES, California, March 25, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – With Cardinal Roger Mahony’s problematic history of cover-up with sex abuse cases during his time as head of the Archdiocese of Los Angeles, it’s expected that Catholics would be scandalized by his appearance over the weekend at the archdiocese’s massive annual Religious Education Congress (LA REC). Ruth Institute President Dr. Jennifer Roeback Morse concurred with the impropriety of Mahony’s appearance at the LA REC. “The cardinal has become a sy
