The fallout from Pope Francis' suspension of ordinations by France's most faithful bishop

Season 4, Ep. 288

On June 2, 2022, Bishop Dominque Rey of the Diocese of Toulon-Fréjus, France, announced that he had received a letter from Pope Francis' Vatican, indefinitely suspending him from performing ordinations. The problem for the Vatican seems to have been the bishop being open to ordaining Traditional Latin Mass priests and having too many young priests in his diocese. Despite letters, a visit to Rome, and the innumerable prayers of the faithful, no reason has yet been given by Rome to explain the reason for the ban. Bishop Rey, however, remains faithful to the spirit of the Gospel and obedience to Pope Francis' Vatican. Join John-Henry Westen now as he discusses with Bishop Rey and seminarian Abbé Thomas Duchesne the hardships imposed on the Diocese of Toulon-Fréjus and how the faithful are remaining steadfast in their Catholic Faith.

  • 315. WARNING: We must stop the New World Order

    01:20:35
    Author and researcher David Sorensen is sounding the alarm against a coordinated effort by big pharma, big tech, the educational system, the mainstream media, telecommunications, and more — all of which are working together to build a globalist New World Order. Sorensen shatters the illusion of choice and warns the world that major organizations across a variety of industries are in reality all controlled by the same handful of powerful globalist oligarchs. As the world watches America's 2024 Presidential elections, outbreak of war across the world, failing economies, and more, it is time now more than ever for an informed citizenry to prevent the New World Order from permanently changing the public narrative in their favor. Never letting a crisis go to waste, the globalist elites are using this moment to bring the New World Order into fruition. Freedom-loving citizens everywhere cannot let them.HELP US FIGHT THE LIES OF THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND SPREAD THE TRUTH AROUND THE WORLD: https://give.lifesitenews.comSHOP YOUR FAVORITE PRECIOUS METALS WITH LIFESITENEWS: https://stjosephpartners.com/lifesitenewsSHOP ALL YOUR FUN AND FAVORITE LIFESITE MERCH! https://shop.lifesitenews.com/ Connect with us on social media:LifeSite: https://linktr.ee/lifesitenewsJohn-Henry Westen: https://linktr.ee/jhwesten

Now, Zember helps others discover true intimacy as God has designed and away from the LGBT agenda of 'free love.' Zember's message to the LGBT community cuts directly against the mainstream narrative of sexual promiscuity celebrated by the world, and instead offers something true and lasting that only Christ can give.

  • 310. Child of Sexual Assault Shares Why He's Thankful that His Mother Chose Life

    26:17
    Pro-life activist Steventhen Holland shares the moving story of how his mother chose life rather than abortion after surviving sexual assault by multiple men. Steventhen's mother resisted hospital pressure to have an abortion because she valued the life in her womb—even choosing poverty, danger, and homelessness as a result. Steventhen's moving story about his birth, adoption, and reunion with his biological mother after 27 years is a pro-life story that is changing countless hearts and minds to reject abortion and choose life. The culture of life is filled with shining examples of faith, heroism, and sacrifice, and Steventhen Holland's story powerfully reminds us why every unborn child is a gift from God.HELP US FIGHT THE LIES OF THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND SPREAD THE TRUTH AROUND THE WORLD: https://give.lifesitenews.com LOVE LIFESITE?

  • 309. Bishop Strickland Calls Out Rome For 'Weaponized Ambiguity' On Women, Homosexual Blessings

    32:03
    In an exclusive interview, Bishop Joseph Strickland observed that 'we are in a time of weaponized confusion' regarding the role of women in the Catholic Church, the Vatican's controversial English translation of 'Fidcuia Supplicans.' Bishop Strickland described the need for authentic renewal in the Catholic Church — especially during Lent. Strickland also warns against the increasing desire for "women priests" among liberal Catholic activists, infatuations that only devalue the authentic and traditional role of women in the Church. As Pope Francis continues stoking confusion, Bishop Strickland's clear teaching is needed now more than ever.HELP US FIGHT THE LIES OF THE MAINSTREAM MEDIA AND SPREAD THE TRUTH AROUND THE WORLD: https://give.lifesitenews.com LOVE LIFESITE?
