The Vatican and the One-World Religion: Are We Now Witnessing the Rise of What Saint Pius X Feared?

Cardinal Raymond Burke wrote: "The idea of a one-world government is fundamentally the same phenomenon that was displayed by the builders of the Tower of Babel who presumed to exercise the power of God on earth to unite heaven with earth, which is simply incorrect. What we truly need is a religious conversion, in other words, a strong teaching and practice of faith in God and obedience to the order with which He has created us. In my judgment, these terms are very insidious and are being used to promote a certain agenda which has nothing to do with our Catholic faith."

The push to embrace a One-World Religion in which the unique claim and role of the Church Jesus Christ founded is ignored and rejected is simply the religious guise of this agenda. The 2020 Latin Mass conference held in Monterey, California addressed precisely this threat, coming even from the Vatican itself, that Cardinal Burke warned us about.

1. and 2. Amoris Laetitia—An In-depth Look (2 parts)
Father Mastroeni details the serious discontinuity in moral reasoning that the 2016 Apostolic Exhortation on marriage and family Amoris Laetitia displays. In refusing to recognize the existence of moral absolutes in the matter of intrinsically immoral acts - in this case the prohibition against adultery - it tries to make the case for admitting to Holy Communion those living in adultery and challenges the use of Canon 915 to refuse Holy Communion to those living in sin.

3. Priestly Celibacy—Only a Discipline?
Fr. Anthony J. Mastroeni explains that the obligation for Roman rite priests to live in celibacy is NOT merely an discipline or custom. It goes back to Jesus and apostolic times and was universally mandated by the First Lateran Council. Priestly celibacy is rooted in doctrinal foundations, as the priest is ordained to stand in persona Christi, especially in the Mass or while administering the sacraments.

Father Anthony J. Mastroeni was ordained for the diocese of Paterson, N.J. in 1972. He earned an S.T.L. in Spiritual Theology, a doctorate in Moral Theology from the Angelicum in Rome; a J.D. in Civil Law from Rutgers Law School. For the last 33 years he has been teaching university students, as well as giving retreats, mostly to consecrated women

4. Credo in Sanctam Catholicam Ecclesiam (I believe in the Holy Catholic Church)
Father Joseph Illo explains that the Church itself is not in crisis, but that she is under constant attack. Faithful Catholics will only grow stronger in Christ through these assaults as long as they keep the Faith. Father Joseph Illo graduated B.A. in philosophy from the Pontifical University of St. Thomas (the Angelicum) in Rome. He was ordained in 1991 for the Diocese of Stockton. He has been chaplain at Thomas Aquinas College and is currently pastor of Star of the Sea parish in San Francisco

5. The History and State of the FSSP Today
Father Zachary Akers, FSSP gives a short history of the founding and current activities and apostolates of the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter throughout the world today.

6. The One-World Utopian Delusion of the Current Pontificate
At the turn of the 20th century, Pope Saint Pius X condemned the notion of a one-world brotherhood of all religions as the program of “insane dreamers, rebels and miscreants.” That same program is now being promoted relentlessly by the Vatican itself. What can be done? Christopher A. Ferrara is a prolific writer for Catholic magazines and periodicals; he is active in the pro-life movement; his latest book is The Great Facade: The Regime of Novelty in the Catholic Church from Vatican II to the Francis Revolution (Second Edition)

7. The Sunday Homily
Father Joseph Illo gives a homily to help us prepare for Lent by meditating on the famous passage on love in 1 Corinthians - He reflects on how this passage is lived out in marriages in real life, and how couples can move beyond the "adolescent" stage of love towards the self-sacrificial ideal that the sacrament gives us the grace to live out. Christ gives us the ultimate example of laying down his life for others. Lent's essential purpose is not to test our willpower, but to purify our charity through prayer, fasting and alms-giving.
