Two Blows For Pope Benedict: The Death of His Brother and His Household Staff Will Be Placed Under a Commissar
The Commissar for the Memores Domini
[National File] Romania has passed a law banning gender studies and educational institutions from promoting gender identities divorced from biological sex, joining the ranks of Central European countries Hungary and Poland to require a more traditional approach to gender theory.
On Tuesday, Romanian lawmakers passed an amendment to an education law banning educational institutions from “activities propagating theories and opinions on gender identity according to which gender is a separate concept from biological sex,” according to The Swaddle.
The decision elicited widespread condemnation from a variety of activist organizations, with some professors openly intending to defy the law. The amendment was passed without any debate or consultation with teachers or educators. [Many times these laws promoting degeneracy are passed without consultation of parents.]

Hildesheim (kath.net) Hildesheim Bishop Heiner Wilmer considers an even more drastic decline in membership in the Catholic Church for 2021 because of the Corona crisis is possible. The bishop said to the diocese press office in Osnabrück, "I assume that if the distance regulations and precautionary measures fall, we will have a drastic drop in church visitors again." The increasing number of people leaving the Church is very worrying.

Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Cardinal Ladaria: "Perverse" when doctors and relatives practice active euthanasia out of false pity - No Catholic identity for psychiatric clinics of the order "Broeders van Liefde
Vatican City / Geneva (kath.net/KAP) The Vatican has confirmed the revocation of Catholic identity for psychiatric clinics of the Belgian order "Broeders van Liefde" (Brothers of Charity). As became known weeks ago, they have not been able to call themselves "Catholic" since the end of March. In a letter published on Tuesday, the Roman Congregation of the Faith justified this step.
After numerous contacts and meetings, one unfortunately had to take note that there was no willingness in the clinics connected to the order to accept the Catholic teaching. Active euthanasia remains inadmissible even in extreme cases, according to the letter signed by Cardinal Luis Ladaria. Human life maintain its dignity under all circumstances. It is all the more "perverse" when doctors and relatives practice active euthanasia out of false pity. It was therefore decided "after a long and painful journey" to no longer consider the clinics concerned as Catholic.
The chairman of the board of the Association of the Brothers of Charity, Raf de Rycke, had already reacted calmly to the withdrawal in May. They have no "consequences in civil law," he said at the time to the Flemish newspaper "De Standaard".
Belgium has allowed active euthanasia since 2002
The dispute as to whether a psychiatric clinic that does not rule out the use of active euthanasia can still call itself Catholic dates back to 2017. At that time, the Belgian organization "Broeders van Liefde" announced that it would no longer rule out active assisted suicide for the mentally ill in its clinics. In Belgium, active euthanasia has been legal under certain conditions since 2002, including for the mentally ill.
The "Broeders van Liefde" run twelve psychiatric clinics in Belgium as well as dozens of schools, crèches and orthopedic centers. According to its own statements, the organization has a total of 14,000 employees nationwide. The religious order is legally, closely linked to the organization.
The specialty of the Order of Brothers of Charity, founded in Ghent in 1807, is the care of the mentally ill. The community, known as "Broeders van Liefde" in Belgium, has around 600 members worldwide and is active in around 30 countries.

Cardinal Schönborn Calls the Police on Pensioner Who Refuses to Wear Mask -- "This is Like Communism"
Vienna (kath.net) There was an incident in the Archdiocese of Vienna in May in view of the Corona epidemic, which has now become known in the media via "" initiative-corona.info According to the report, in the largely empty cathedral and at a great distance from others, the woman had refused to wear a Covid mask, "because I want to pray to my Heavenly Father without a mask, there is a right to freedom of religion." When a cathedral supervisor called the police, the police led her out of the church. Gisela R. comments: “Jesus Christ is the Lord of the Church, what is the police doing here, it is like Communism!”
The woman was then taken away by the police via Stephansplatz and taken into custody. Gisela R. told the police that she felt humiliated by the mask because it shows that one is the other's enemy and that many people must now die alone. According to the report, the police are considering her being admitted to the psychiatric ward, and it is only after almost 4 hours of police custody that the official doctor finally released her. She later received a criminal fine of EUR 120 for “disturbing the religious peace”. Gisela R. is appealing "because she is not a dog who needs a mask". and because for medical reasons she was not allowed to wear a mask after a pulmonary embolism. A few days later, three policemen visited her at home to question her again. She was quoted and later questioned at the police station. “I am a free citizen who insists on her human rights and does not have to follow dictatorial laws. Politics overrides the law here, ” says Gisela R. “But there are no longer any laws, now Corona is the law.”
kath.net asked the Archdiocese of Vienna for an opinion last week, but has unfortunately received no answers to the incident to date!

Ohio representative Nino Vitale demonstrates how masks are unsafe. How will his overlords silence him now? So far, they've tried to say he's an anti-semite and a racist.
|Maybe call him a gun nut for his NRA rating and for teaching Concealed Carry in Ohio?|
|Will they say he has too many kids?|
Or, say he defeated an unqualified sodomite?
The best bet is probably to get the archdiocese of Cincinnati to say he's a schismatic for preferring the TLM.

Craig said the officers heard a loud bang — after the rear window was smashed — and “in their mind, they believed they could be shot at.” Craig also said the agitators yelled obscenities at them before some hopped on the hood of the car.
Then there's this ... Craig said, “There was information that officers reported several of the protesters were armed with hammers.” Craig couldn’t point out how many protesters were allegedly armed with hammers.

Well, Jesus did that. What’s so wrong about that? Ever get a feeling that these Bishops would have Christ murdered in a back alley someplace if they could?
used to describe something that causes great and sometimes unfriendly disagreement within a group of people
His favorite “Saint” is Communist Archbishop Romero, so that actually says a lot.
Bishop Robert J. Brennan’s diocesan statement is as follows:
The Catholic Church proposes a beautiful, life-giving and liberating vision to the world based on the truths about the human person, human sexuality, marriage and the family. We proclaim with one breath the Splendor of Truth and the Joy of the Gospel. The fundamental truth is that every human person is created in the image and likeness of God and as such, must be treated with dignity and respect. While not everyone shares the Church’s vision, I hope we can all show that respect.
While Father Klee has been permitted to live in the rectory at St. John the Baptist, he is not assigned to the Parish of St. John the Baptist nor to the Parish of the Sacred Heart. He does not represent either of these parishes nor the diocese. Father Klee has shown a pattern of making communications to a broad audience on a variety of contemporary issues which are frankly dirvisive. While these communications seemingly present Catholic moral teaching, they are often offensive and disrespectful to the human dignity of persons.
Father Klee has been repeatedly warned about making these divisive communications and ordered to cease doing so. Further steps are being considered at this time.
There’s no word as to why Father Klee was “sidelined”, but maybe Father Klee’s Catholic witness during Gay Pride Month was too much for Brennan?
Here’s Father’s statement:
I write you in these closing days of the month dedicated to the Sacred Heart of Our Lord Jesus Christ. We pray for the grace to truly respond to His lament so evident in our world today, namely, that the greatest outpouring of love on Good Friday goes largely ignored if not repudiated. Hence, let us make our lives an Act of Reparation to the Sacred Heart even after June!
I really shouldn’t disclose details [of my current situation], although a wise and holy pastor counseled me shortly after my priestly ordination, ‘If you don’t fill in the blanks, the people will.’ Suffice it to say, please pray and make sacrifices for the following two intentions in addition to praying that I will be a truly holy priest – that’s all I want.
1) For a tremendous outpouring of graces upon the spiritual leadership of the Church, specifically upon bishops and priests, that they be empowered with the cardinal virtue of fortitude. That they implore the intercession of the martyrs lest they go from being potential victims of satan’s attacks to being actual instigators and accomplices like the Pharisees in Our Lord’s day. Please pray that they be freed from a subtle resignation to despair – specifically of falling into discouragement by believing the authentic Gospel of Christ and the teachings of the Catholic Faith are not the answer, but atheistic socialism is.
2) For men and women – and, increasingly, boys and girls as well – deluded by the false promises of the homosexualist agenda, and especially those in the active homosexual lifestyle, that they be given the grace to break free from the devil’s grasp. We pray they acquire the theological virtue of hope, becoming inspired to believe they can be freed from the sinful enslavement the practice of sodomy entails. We pray that many come to understand that the sacraments of the Eucharist and Confession are indispensable for receiving the necessary graces to resist grave sin.
