Strange: Mark Millward JANUARY 21, 2023 AT 7:10 PM There are only two Catholic websites that I visit everyday: Barnhardt.biz and FromRome.info... I am disappointed that Ann Barnhardt thus far, appears to have forsworn her former desire for truth

There are only two Catholic websites that I visit everyday: Barnhardt.biz and FromRome.info.

Ann has laid great store in Canon Law in determining where truth lies in the Munus / Ministerium distinction. If she is to be consistent, she ought to be pursuing the same route of Canon Law and juridical norms in the present interregnum, and be prepared to debate with all who present an at least plausible case.

The editor of FromRome lays out what appear to be unarguable Canon Law and juridical facts in the above review which impress for their precision, anticipation of objections and painstaking elucidation of the hierarchy of right drawn from Canon Law, juridical custom and apostolic right. The editor’s words have the plain ring of truth. I am not a Canon lawyer, just a pew sitter with Myers Briggs personality type ESTJ, someone in other words who is by nature inclined to want to follow truth to its absolute logical conclusions, no matter where they lead.

So, I am disappointed that Ann Barnhardt thus far, appears to have forsworn her former desire for truth and has descended to the level of common, logically fallacious arguments of ad hominem and appeal to ridicule, apparently because she has disagreements with and complaints in regard to, the conduct of the editor of FromRome.info arising from his exploits in Ukraine amongst other matters. I share these concerns, but submit that they are utterly irrelevant to whether what the editor says is true.

It is regrettable that the future of the papacy has become mired in what should be minor controversies between on the one hand a fearless Amazonian warrior who appears to apply her brand of wisdom selectively and an irregular Franciscan brother who fell into the trap of appearing to war-monger because he lost sight of his true calling, which is faithfully manifested in his argumentation presented above.

At this rate we risk the wrath of God because we suffer from the modern, Internet Age disability of being “unable to get over ourselves”.

If what Brother Alexis writes above is not a true interpretation of Canon Law and juridical norms, I want to see and hear those arguments, not ad hominem attacks on his character.

Whilst I doubt that Ann reads this site, I hope that others, who know her may do so, and will communicate the need to engage with Brother Alexis’ arguments head on, rather than damning them by association, which is worse by far than ignoring them.

Let us not, at this vital juncture quake before Goliath, but let us take our sling and pebbles and step forth to battle. We must put aside our differences that God’s will may be done with our aid and not in our despite.

Paul Craig Roberts The Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe published on April 15, 2016, more than six years ago, a report on the torture of Donbass Russians by the Ukrainian military and police forces.   The report documents horrendous torture and it was done out of racial hatred of Russians. You can read the report here:   https://www.osce.org/files/f/documents/e/7/233896.pdf     Few Westerners, being so poorly educated, are aware that Western Ukraine fought for Nazi Germany during World War II.   When Washington overthrew the Ukrainian government in 2014, Washington installed a Nazi government.

Vox Cantoris vs. Aqua

The Catholic Monitor commenter Aqua had this to say to the Vox Cantoris website: Aqua said… Fred, your topic here reminds me of a dust-up, a few days ago, on Vox Cantoris. He asserted that it is our duty as Christians to wear masks to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass if the government tells us we must, or they will close our Churches. My response to him was that I find it inconceivable that an orthodox Catholic, such as himself, would ever submit to unjust dictates from secular government over how we approach Our Lord in Holy Mass. My response to him was that the Mass belongs to Catholics and we decide, within the bounds of Tradition, and in accord with the Word of Jesus, how we conduct ourselves in Holy Mass. Only one authority prevails over Mass and that is our God and the Sacred Tradition given by Him to guide us in all times and places. Understand, there is nothing inherently wrong with wearing a mask to Mass. But there is EVERYTHING wrong with wearing a symbol

Mainstream Media: "Is America the Real Victim of Anti-Russia Sanctions?" & "Biden's arrogant anti-Russian sanctions have amounted to a price hike on working class Americans that have so far failed to weaken the Russian economy"

  Mainstream Media Acknowledges Biden’s “Arrogant” Sanctions On Russia Are Damning Americans:     @MaxBlumenthal Biden's arrogant anti-Russian sanctions have amounted to a price hike on working class Americans that have so far failed to weaken the Russian economy. His neocon policy accelerates the process of de-dollarization, diplomatic isolation & imperial decline. The mainstream new outlet asked "Is America the Real Victim of Anti-Russia Sanctions?": Remember the claims that Russia’s economy was more or less irrelevant, merely the equivalent of a small, not very impressive European country? “Putin, who has an economy the size of Italy,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said in 2014 after the invasion of Crimea, “[is] playing a poker game with a pair of twos and winning.” Of increasing Russian diplomatic and geopolitical influence in Europe, the Middle East, and East Asia, The Economist asked in 2019, “How did a country with an economy the size of Spain … ach
