On September 4, Bp. Robert Morlino of the diocese of Madison, Wisconsin, announced the change at his Sunday Pontifical Mass. During the homily he declared that all his Novus Ordo Masses at St. Patrick parish are to be said facing the same direction as the people. Since the cathedral burned down nearly 10 years ago, Bp. Morlino has been using St. Patrick’s and two other parishes as his cathedral.
“Planning according to the mind of God,” he announced. “And I’m doing that right now in what I’m about to say. I’m planning for us in accord to the mind of God.”
He continued, “In October I will start to offer this Mass here at St. Patrick’s on Sunday morning, when I am here, ad orientem.”

Audio: Who can even conceive the mind of the Lord?
Remnant Editor Michael J. Matt takes us on a scooter ride into our Catholic past. This video provides a glimpse into what Catholic life in a Catholic country would have been like, as we visit little mountain villages and churches high up in the Alps of Northern Italy. Come along for the ride, and let’s see what we lost and what must be restored again.
Michael Matt interviews the former president of Una Voce International--English barrister, Lt. Colonel James Bogle on the situation in the Church under Pope Francis, silent bishops, religious liberty, racism and Catholic culture. What built Europe? Why are so many people from all over the world fascinated by Europe? What brings tourists flocking to Europe’s greatest attractions? Two words: Catholic Church--the only completely non-racist religion in the world! This is a preview of the RT documentary on the Roman Forum in Italy, to be released later this month.

Christopher A. Ferrara gives a hard-hitting and carefully reasoned analysis of the current and increasingly serious dilemma we find ourselves in – and some challenging ideas for how faithful members of the Church Militant can faithfully respond. As Catholics become increasingly concerned about the alarming direction of the current pontificate, it appears increasingly evident that we have not been given the whole truth about the Third Secret of Fatima and the enigmatic “Bishop dressed in white.” He is President and Chief Counsel for the American Catholic Lawyers Association. He is a prolific writer for Catholic magazines and periodicals; he is active in the pro-life movement; his latest book is The Great Facade: The Regime of Novelty in the Catholic Church from Vatican II to the Francis Revolution (Second Edition).
