"No-one wants to live in a communist state and Vietnam's economici boom is fake news. That's why people escape. Don't believe the government, only certain party members and officials are getting richer, ordinary people are becoming poorer." A representative of the Vietnamese community in the UK speaks out.
Speaking off the cuff to the Synod Fathers, the Pope asked for forgiveness for the pagan statuettes being thrown into the Tiber. However, the police have recovered them and on Sunday they may be exposed during the concluding Mass for the Synod on the Amazon. An incredible epilogue which signals a disaster for the Vatican spokesmen and exposes the Holy See to ridicule.
An Amazonian Rite? Then why not a Bantu Rite or a Pygmyan Rite, until there is a complete fragmentation of the Roman Rite? To cite the Ambrosian Rite as a model is in error, because the Ambrosian Rite developed as the result of a profound assimilation between the Roman Rite and the Eastern Rites in an Anti-Arian context. The para-liturgies of the last few weeks during the Synod reveal the deception of being “rituals” that have been made up at the table while being passed off as “Amazonian.”
The biennial contemporary sacred art exhibition titled ‘Ode to Life,’ is currently being held at the Grand Hôtel des Ambassadeurs in Menton, on the French Riviera. It is the first of its kind and well worth a detour. Curated by Liana Marabini, it runs to the end of October.
"We, numerous bishops, priests, and Catholic faithful from all over the world, hereby affirm that the Instrumentum Laboris prepared for the coming Synodal assembly raises serious questions and very grave reservations, because of its contradiction of individual points of Catholic doctrine which have always been taught by the Church".
"If the doctors say that Tafida could live for another 20 years and I say that I am happy to sacrifice my career to look after my daughter, why are the doctors trying to stop me? Just because she is disabled? " Shelina Begum is the mother of the little English girl living in a state of minimal consciousness at the Royal London Hospital which wants to switch off her life-support and prevent her from being transferred to the Gaslini hospital in Genoa. She was interviewed by the Bussola and launches an appeal to all religions to unite and fight for the disabled. Today marks the beginning of the week, according to the last hearing, when Judge MacDonald will issue his ruling on Tafida’s life.
"No honest person can anymore deny the almost general doctrinal confusion which is reigning in the life of the Church in our days." "In view of this reality, our conscience does not allow us to be silent"
“The Lord instructed us to go forth into the whole world to baptise all peoples, it is very clear, this is our task.” “ If a missionary has the sole intention of appreciating native culture, not only he won’t evangelise, he risks losing his own faith.” “ The preparatory document (Instrumentum Laboris) cannot be accepted, we must do everything we can to defend the integrity of the Catholic faith.” “It is also dishonest to present a Synod supposedly for the evangelisation of the Amazon, when the true objective is to revolutionise the whole Church.” “I am not an enemy of the Pope and there is no American complot.” Bannon? “I am not involved with people who act to destroy the Church.” These are statements by Cardinal Raymond Leo Burke who will give the main lecture at the Giornata della Bussola, 6 October.
The term sustainable development is commonly used to mean economic growth that conserves the environment, an outcome which sounds beneficial and desirable, but the real goal of that concept is to demonstrate that population growth is the real cause of underdevelopment and environmental degradation.

A conversation with Steven Mosher (Population Research Institute) on the events in Hong Kong. "The discontent over Beijing's multiple violations of the Sino-British Agreement has been building for many years. Public anger boiled over with the introduction of the extradition bill, which puts everyone in Hong Kong at risk of being "shanghaied" over the border to China. But even the promised withdrawal of the bill will not resolve the deeper underlying grievances of the Hong Kong people". "The demonstrations were started and led by Hong Kong's Catholics, who are roughly 8 percent of the population. But to this number must be added the many non-Catholic students who attend Hong Kong's many Catholic high schools and colleges".
A "crusade of prayer and fasting" to prevent the Amazon Synod approving the errors and heresies in the Instrumentum Laboris. This is the appeal launched by Cardinal Raymond L. Burke and the auxiliary bishop of Astana (Kazakhstan) Athanasius Schneider
Our investigation continues into how the incessant propaganda campaign on climate change has distorted the public’s perception of reality. The first victim of climate change is nature, or to be exact, what we think about nature. We have been to led believe that nature is static and its equilibrium is destroyed exclusively by human presence and activity. We are under the illusion that no change is the norm, like a frozen image that persists to infinity. But this is not the case, nature is dynamic, it is constantly changing. We are being brainwashed by a vision rooted in atheism. Regrettably, the Catholic Church has now joined in the chorus.
