The Holy See and China are scheduled to sign an agreement in Beijing on the nomination of bishops sometime before the end of September. “It will be a historic breakthrough,” a Vatican source told America. He confirmed that a high-level Holy See delegation will travel to the Chinese capital for the signing and that a date has already been fixed for this ground-breaking event.

The agreement only deals with the question of the nomination of bishops. It gives each side a say in the selection of candidates, but it recognizes that the pope will have the final word in the appointment of bishops for the Catholic Church throughout mainland China.

Since the Communists came to power in 1949—they later expelled the papal representative and broke relations with the Holy See in 1951—Chinese authorities have insisted that Rome should “not interfere in the internal affairs of China.” This agreement offers a more pragmatic understanding of that declaration by acknowledging the pope’s key role in the nomination of bishops in the most populous country in the world.

Both sides consider it “a provisional agreement,” to be revisited in some years. Sources told America that the Holy See recognizes that it is “not a good agreement,” but it believes that it is the only one possible at present and that, in a small but highly significant way, it opens the door to developing a constructive and improving dialogue with the world’s emerging superpower.

America has learned that the text of the agreement will not be made public, even after the signing.

President Trump has ordered the intelligence community to "provide for the immediate declassification" of several documents related to the FBI and the Department of Justice, the White House press secretary announced Monday.

Big Questions In Russia Case May Be Answered If FISA Documents Are Unredacted

The documents in question are specific pages of the June 2017 FISA warrant application related to onetime Trump campaign foreign policy adviser Carter Page, all FBI interview reports prepared in connection with all FISA warrant applications in connection with Page, and all FBI reports of interviews with Justice Department lawyer Bruce Ohr prepared in connection with the FBI's Russia investigation.

Additionally, Trump has ordered the DOJ and the FBI to release all text messages related to the Russia investigation — in unredacted form — of former FBI Director James Comey, former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, former FBI Special Agent Peter Strzok, former FBI attorney Lisa Page and Ohr.

"When the President issues such an order, it triggers a declassification review process that is conducted by various agencies within the intelligence community, in conjunction with the White House Counsel, to seek to ensure the safety of America's national security interests," a spokesperson for the Department of Justice said in a statement. "The Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation are already working with the Director of National Intelligence to comply with the President's order."

New Jersey Hotline For Clergy Sex Abuse Claims Flooded With Calls, Officials Say

September 15, 2018 at 11:13 pm

NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — A hotline created to document reports of clergy sex abuse in New Jersey is receiving so many calls that some can’t even get through. The round-the-clock call center opened last week as part of a new investigation by Attorney General Gurbir Grewal.

Fred Marigliano says it took him more than 50 years to speak out about being abused by his priest when he was 11-years-old.

“All I wanted to do was not be raped again,” he told CBS2. “Sometimes I still have nightmares.”

His sobering story was told to a crowd that included Cardinal Joseph Tobin at Newark’s Cathedral Basilica of the Sacred Heart on Friday. On Saturday, he called it in to Grewal’s office via the hotline that’s been slammed virtually nonstop with calls from other survivors.

“It rang maybe 10 times,” survivor Joe Capozzi said. “It hung up and a message came up saying we’re unable to take your call.”

Pennsylvania Attorney General Josh Shapiro released a grand jury report last month which alleged there’s more than 1,000 victims of sexual abuse by more than 300 Roman Catholic priests in the state over the past seven decades. Soon after, Grewal created the hotline to identify potential victims in New Jersey. He wouldn’t discuss the exact number of calls coming in, but he did confirm the volume is so high it’s forced him to assign additional staff.

Attorney Greg Gianforcaro says he’s interacted with at least 300 victims in New Jersey, and he thinks the state’s total number will most likely surpass Pennsylvania’s.

“In 1958, New Jersey passed the charitable immunity legislation, that basically immunized this kind of abuse by religious clerics,” Gianforcaro said on Friday. “I think under these circumstances I believe that New Jersey was a safe haven for pedophile priests.”

Survivors say the state’s statute of limitations has given them another reason to call.

“We want you to go back and do away with the statute of limitations so these people… these people that raped us and raped our kids can pay the price,” Marigliano said.

Cardinal Tobin says he supports eliminating the statute of limitations.

“I think a blanket question like that is hard sometimes, because you have to ask to what do statute of limitations do that we’ve kept them around for so long? But I do believe there’s something unique about this crime in that people often don’t realize what happened to them until they are adults,” Newark’s Archbishop said. “Demand the truth, because Jesus said the truth will set us free.”

Grewal says a state task force will use the calls to present evidence to a state grand jury.

“I kept my secret for 20 years, and it ate me up inside,” Capozzi said. “It was slowly killing me, and now being able to call up the hotline, leave your name, leave your information and let go of that secret because then you can start healing.”

New York’s Attorney General Barbara Underwood has also launched an investigation into all eight Roman Catholic dioceses in the state. Underwood’s office also announced a hotline — 1-800-771-7755 — for individuals to call to report allegations of clergy abuse, as well as a confidential online complaint form that can be found at

The Catholic Church Is Breaking Apart. Here’s Why.

Pope Francis, Cardinal Wuerl, Theodore McCarrick, and the crisis of a church divided.

Consider what we know, and what has been alleged, about Pope Francis, Cardinal Donald Wuerl, and disgraced former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick.

For several decades, Father, Bishop, Archbishop, and eventually Cardinal McCarrick preyed sexually on the priests and seminarians serving under his authority. There are credible allegations he abused boys as young as 11. To the extent that this behavior was a secret within the American church, it was very badly kept. Between 2005 and 2007, three dioceses in New Jersey paid out large cash settlements to keep allegations of abuse by McCarrick quiet. As Bishop Steven Lopes said in a homily first reported by First Things, “I was a seminarian when Theodore McCarrick was named archbishop of Newark. And he would visit the seminary often, and we all knew.”

McCarrick ended his career as cardinal of the Washington, D.C., archdiocese and was succeeded by Archbishop Donald Wuerl, who arrived having just served as bishop of Pittsburgh. Wuerl’s former diocese has been in the news recently after the release of a grand jury report by the Pennsylvania attorney general’s office outlining decades of abuse by priests in the state.

Abuses, the Knights of Columbus: we shall help rebuild the U.S. Church

Carl A. Anderson writes to members of the country’s largest Catholic fraternal benefit society. Among the proposals, expansion of the zero-tolerance policy to include sexual activity or misconduct by clerics including bishops, and by seminarians

The leader of the Knights of Columbus calls on members of the U.S. Catholic organization to work for repentance, reform and rebuilding of the Church after the recent emergence of new sexual abuse scandals and suggests, among other things, the expansion of the zero-tolerance policy to include sexual activity or misconduct by clerics including bishops, and by seminarians.

“The Knights of Columbus - laymen, priests and chaplains together - will have an important role to play in rebuilding the Church. We must commit the Knights of Columbus to work for repentance, reform and rebuilding of the Church” the Supreme Knight Carl A. Anderson writes in a public letter to his knight brothers.

The letter is based on two well-known events that are rocking not only the North American Church - but also Europe, Latin America and elsewhere, Anderson points out - namely, the sexual abuses committed by Cardinal Theodore McCarrick and the Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report on abuses. “Many feel deeply betrayed by those whom they long held in high regard,” Anderson writes, stating that “ the disgrace not only is borne by the perpetrators, it hurts us all, as does the silence of shepherds who have ignored the cries of their flocks”, because while there is no doubt that there are “many wonderful and faithful laborers in the vineyard of the Lord among our priests and bishops” it is “clear,” that “ in addition to devastating criminal acts, we have seen many other moral failings by clergy that represent a crisis of commitment to the Gospel”. And “ Too often the needs of victims have been subordinated to a distorted sense of mercy toward the perpetrators or an instinct for clerical self-preservation”.

Now, the head of the largest Catholic fraternal benefit society in the United States continues, the Knights of Columbus must commit themselves to work for repentance, reform and rebuilding of the Church. Repentance, first of all, “should include a full accounting of the misdeeds by those who have committed them. Archbishop McCarrick and others at fault owe us a full account of their actions, motivations and cover-ups. After years of having us confess to them, it is now time for them to come clean about what they have done and what they have failed to do”. This “will also help increase the recognition that clerical sexual abuse is a global problem that must be addressed at the highest levels of the Catholic Church. Moreover, priests and bishops who refuse to live according to their promises of celibacy should be removed from public ministry, not out of retribution, but for the protection of the faithful and to prevent future variations of the scandal we now suffer”.

Reforming the Church, the Supreme Knight of Columbus continues, includes “ many good ideas that have been proposed, such as a full and complete investigation of sexual abuse led by an independent commission that includes laity; complete transparency by the Catholic hierarchy into all matters of criminal sexual misconduct past or future; an expansion of the zero tolerance policy to include sexual activity or misconduct by clerics including bishops, and by seminarians; and a call for faithfulness by all members of the clergy, including bishops. There must also be an independent ethics hotline for reporting of criminal and other conduct at odds with Catholic teaching on the clerical state of life; and there must be protections against retaliation”. Reforms that - Anderson stresses - will be difficult for a Church largely unused to them, and we must support our bishops and our priests in embracing these reforms in order to rebuild.

According to Anderson, “We can help to rebuild our Church in several ways. Above all else, Knights — and our chaplains — must embrace love of God and love of neighbor. This is Christ’s great commandment and the founding mission of our Order. It is also exactly the opposite of the rejection of God and exploitation of neighbor that our Church has witnessed in these scandals”. After recalling then Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger denunciation of “filth” in the Church pronounced in 2005 and Pope Francis’ recent letter to the People of God, Carl A. Anderson concentrates his intention to help renew the Church on a national level through a Novena of Masses, in the forthcoming organization of a national tour of the relic of Saint John’s heart.

Under God's Discipline

September 15 

Behold, happy is the man whom God correcteth: therefore despise not thou the chastening of the Almighty: for he maketh sore, and bindeth up: he woundeth, and his hands make whole. Job 5:17, 18

Our heavenly Father does not willingly afflict or grieve the children of men. He has His purpose in the whirlwind and in the storm, in the fire and in the flood. The Lord permits calamities to come to His people to save them from greater dangers. He desires everyone to examine his own heart closely and carefully, and then draw near to God, that God may draw near to him.

Our life is in the hands of God. He sees dangers threatening us that we cannot see. He is the giver of all our blessings; the provider of all our mercies; the orderer of all our experiences. He sees the perils that we cannot see. He may permit to come upon His people that which fills their hearts with sadness, because He sees that they need to make straight paths for their feet, lest the lame be turned out of the way. He knows our frame, and remembers that we are dust. Even the very hairs of our head are numbered. He works through natural causes to lead His people to remember that He has not forgotten them, but that He desires them to forsake the way which, if they were permitted to follow unchecked and unreproved, would lead them into great peril. Trials come to us all to lead us to investigate our hearts, to see if they are purified from all that defiles. Constantly the Lord is working to our present and eternal good....

Every soul that is saved must be a partaker with Christ of His sufferings, that he may be a partaker with Him of His glory. How few understand why God subjects them to trial. It is by the trial of our faith that we gain spiritual strength. The Lord seeks to educate His people to lean wholly upon Him....

Let everyone examine his own course of action. Let everyone ask himself whether he is meeting the standard that God has placed before him. Can we say from the heart, I lay aside my own will? “I delight to do thy will, O my God: yea, thy law is within my heart”? Do we ask daily, “Lord, what is thy will concerning me?”

In Heavenly Places, p.265.

Make the Sabbath a Delight

All who love God should do what they can to make the Sabbath a delight, holy and honorable. They cannot do this by seeking their own pleasure in sinful, forbidden amusements. Yet they can do much to exalt the Sabbath in their families and make it the most interesting day of the week. We should devote time to interesting our children. A change will have a happy influence upon them. We can walk out with them in the open air; we can sit with them in the groves and in the bright sunshine, and give their restless minds something to feed upon by conversing with them upon the works of God, and can inspire them with love and reverence by calling their attention to the beautiful objects in nature.

The Sabbath should be made so interesting to our families that its weekly return will be hailed with joy. In no better way can parents exalt and honor the Sabbath than by devising means to impart proper instruction to their families and interesting them in spiritual things, giving them correct views of the character of God and what He requires of us in order to perfect Christian characters and attain to eternal life. Parents, make the Sabbath a delight, that your children may look forward to it and have a welcome in their hearts for it.

The Four Winds Loosed,

September 15

Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads. Revelation 7:3.

Angels are belting the world, refusing Satan his claims to supremacy, made because of the vast multitude of his adherents. We hear not the voices, we see not with the natural sight the work of these angels, but their hands are linked about the world, and with sleepless vigilance they are keeping the armies of Satan at bay till the sealing of God's people shall be accomplished. 

John sees the elements of nature—earthquake, tempest, and political strife—represented as being held by four angels. These winds are under control until God gives the word to let them go. There is the safety of God's church. The angels of God do His bidding, holding back the winds of the earth, that the winds should not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree, until the servants of God should be sealed in their foreheads.

The present is a time of overwhelming interest to all living. Rulers and statesmen, men who occupy positions of trust and authority, thinking men and women of all classes, have their attention fixed upon the events taking place about us. They are watching the strained, restless relations that exist among the nations. They observe the intensity that is taking possession of every earthly element, and they realize that something great and decisive is about to take place—that the world is on the verge of a stupendous crisis.

Angels are now restraining the winds of strife, until the world shall be warned of its coming doom; but a storm is gathering, ready to burst upon the earth, and when God shall bid His angels loose the winds, there will be such a scene of strife as no pen can picture....

A moment of respite has been graciously given us of God. Every power lent us of heaven is to be used in doing the work assigned us by the Lord for those who are perishing in ignorance. The warning message is to be sounded in all parts of the world.... A great work is to be done, and this work has been entrusted to those who know the truth for this time

American Bishops Meet With Pope Francis About Abuse

Pope Francis meeting with American bishops on Thursday at the Vatican.

Sept. 13, 2018

VATICAN CITY — It was not the warmest of Vatican welcomes.

Amid a spiraling sexual abuse crisis that has threatened the pontificate of Pope Francis, America’s top Roman Catholic prelates met with the pontiff on Thursday. They were seeking a robust investigation into how Vatican officials permitted one of America’s top bishops, former Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, to climb the hierarchy despite apparently knowing of allegations of his sexual misconduct.

But before the Americans could enter the pope’s private office, the church revealed that an investigation had in fact begun — just perhaps not the one they were expecting.

While a Vatican statement announcing the noon meeting began by listing the American delegation, including the secretary general of the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops, Msgr. Brian Bransfield, it concluded with the revelation that Francis had accepted the resignation of the monsignor’s cousin, Bishop Michael J. Bransfield of West Virginia.

The pope, the statement said, has named a temporary administrator for the Wheeling-Charleston Diocese, Archbishop William E. Lori. Archbishop Lori promptly declared in his own statement that Francis had instructed him “to conduct an investigation into allegations of sexual harassment of adults against Bishop Bransfield.”

As of Thursday afternoon, the Vatican had released no other statement about the meeting. The bishops conference released a short statement from its president, Cardinal Daniel DiNardo of Galveston-Houston.

“We are grateful to the Holy Father for receiving us in audience,” it said. “We shared with Pope Francis our situation in the United States — how the Body of Christ is lacerated by the evil of sexual abuse. He listened very deeply from the heart. It was a lengthy, fruitful, and good exchange.”

The cardinal said they had prayed together and “look forward to actively continuing our discernment together identifying the most effective next steps.”

Vatican Control Through Civil Law

'Civil war' divides world's Catholics amid allegations of sex abuse, coverup

An elevated view of the crowd of faithful attending the Easter Sunday mass celebrated by Pope Francis on Saint Peter's square in the Vatican City, Vatican on April 1, 2018.


VATICAN CITY – The latest — and most serious — wave of pedophilia and cover-up allegations to hit the Vatican is shining a new light on the gap dividing the world’s 1.2 billion Catholics. And almost none of it is about the charges of widespread clerical abuse scandals.

Dozens of commentators and Vatican watchers have pointed to the wide gap between the views of conservative, traditional Catholics in the mold of Pope Benedict XVI, Francis’ predecessor, and those of reform-minded Catholics like Pope Francis. Many media have referred to what is happening as a kind of “civil war.”

Though he is widely popular among non-Catholics, Francis has been a polarizing figure among the faithful since he was first elected five years ago.

The latest sex abuse allegations, specifically those raised by Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò, former nuncio to the United States, have only increased public pressure on Francis to resign in order to save the church.

Viganò named more than two dozen current and former Vatican and U.S. officials and accused them of knowing about and covering up for ex-Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, who is accused of sexually molesting and harassing minors as well as adults. He accused Francis of rehabilitating McCarrick from canonical sanctions imposed on him by Pope Benedict XVI in 2009 or 2010. The Vatican has known since at least 2000 that McCarrick slept with seminarians.

Adding to the crisis within the Vatican was a grand jury report in Pennsylvania that detailed the specter of more than 1,000 alleged under-age victims of abuse by more than 300 priests over the span of seven decades.

Francis is scheduled Thursday to meet with U.S. cardinals and bishops who are expecting to demand answers about the McCarrick scandal. The Vatican said that the U.S. delegation would be headed by Cardinal Daniel DiNardo, head of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops, and also include Francis' top sex abuse adviser, Cardinal Sean O'Malley.

Francis, signaling the Catholic Church's inability to defuse long-running clergy sex scandals, on Wednesday summoned the presidents of Catholic bishops conferences worldwide to the Vatican in February to discuss protecting children and preventing sexual abuse by priests. The meeting, on Feb. 21-24, is believed to be the first of its kind and comes amid the growing criticism over the pope's handling of sex-abuse cases dating back decades.

But Robert Mickens, a veteran Vatican analyst who is now the editor of La Croix International, said the sex abuse scandal masks a rift in the church about its direction under the current pope.

“The trouble calling what is happening with these scandals and the church a ‘civil war’ is that these two camps have existed since the start of Francis’ papacy, plus the fact that the situation has very little to do the sex scandals,” he said.
