Remnant Newspaper editor: Catholics must unite for ‘preservation of the old faith’
September 30, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Michael Matt says he is "fired up" for Voice of the Family's "Our Church – reformed or deformed?" conference this coming Friday, October 4. Matt, long-time editor of The Remnant newspaper, urged Catholics to unite for the "preservation of the old faith" in a promotional video for the gathering.
Matt will be speaking at the much-anticipated conference alongside some of the top Catholic commentators, theologians, and writers in the world. The event will be held at Hotel Massimo D'Azeglio in Rome and will be live-streamed online at no cost by LifeSiteNews from 3:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m Rome Time (9:00 a.m. to 12:00 noon U.S. Eastern Standard Time).
Matt believes Catholics "have nothing to be afraid of" and that it is an honor to be part of this "history making moment" when the laity defend the Bride of Christ. "If God so wills it, there will be martyrs among us...but first, before we are even called to the great sacrifice of martyrdom, let's go on offense. Let's go to war. Let's become cusaders. Let's become soldiers of Jesus Christ."
Matt participated in the Acia Ordinata protest near the Vatican Sunday along with 200 other Catholics. The protest implored the angels to protect the Church ahead of the Pan-Amazonian Synod, which will take place between October 6 and 27. It is believed that at the synod liberal and modernist clergy will seek to overturn the Church's traditional teachings on clerical celibacy, the nature of the priesthood, and the concept of evangelization itself, among other things. Cardinal Walter Brandmüller, one of the two remaining dubia cardinals, called the synod's working document “heretical” and an “apostasy” from Divine Revelation.
