For many years I have wondered about this 'smoke of Satan' uttered by Pope Paul VI. If it meant what it should have meant, why didn't this pope get rid of the smoke rather than carry on promoting the fire so to speak.

The interpretation of this smoke of Satan as the resistance of Archbishop Lefebvre makes perfect sense in the light that Paul VI went along with the changes of Vatican II.

Pope Francis is kind of repeating this anti-tradition rhetoric.

So, many thanks Mr G. I for one am with this thesis.

And some CathInfo members write off Trump because he's pro-Israel. WHO CARES!

Oscar Romero was not a proponent of Liberation Theology. There were priests who were proponents of this heresy who he suspended because they were. Please don't confuse, "It is sinful to kill the innocent civilians." with this philosophy.
It is sinful to kill innocent civilians with any philosophy, but who is saying otherwise? What is "this" philosophy that you are accusing someone of? Who are you accusing?

Are the sermons in written form, or vocal/audio form? 

Just want to add that it is quite reprehensible that Bp. Fellay would sue the family of Archbishop Lefebvre over the sermons. 
Are the sermons in French or English? 
.
Are they the same sermons as in the books that got published by Editions Saint-Remi?  
.
IIRC, +Fellay didn't sue the family, but the publisher, Editions Saint-Remi.  The family had given ESR permission to publish them, but the XSPX sued anyway.  I was told at the time:  "The sermons were transcribed on order of Mgr Lefebvre by Abbé Guépin who was then with the Society, and he kept them with the Archbishop's permission.

Poche,

Saint Óscar Arnulfo Romero y Galdámez (15 August 1917 – 24 March 1980) was a prelate of the Catholic Church in El Salvador who served as the fourth Archbishop of San Salvador. He spoke out against poverty, social injustice, assassinations, and torture amid a growing war between leftist rebels and government and right-wing forces.[3]

In 1980, Romero was assassinated while celebrating Mass in the chapel of the Hospital of Divine Providence. Though no one was ever convicted for the crime, investigations by the UN-created Truth Commission for El Salvador concluded that the extreme right-wing politician, founder of ARENA and death squad leader Roberto D'Aubuisson had given the order.[4]


During Romero's beatification, Pope Francis stated, "His ministry was distinguished by his particular attention to the most poor and marginalized."[5] Hailed as a hero by supporters of liberation theology inspired by his work, Romero, according to his biographer, "was not interested in liberation theology" but faithfully adhered to Catholic teachings on liberation and a preferential option for the poor,[6] desiring a social revolution based on interior reform.

Up to the end of his life, his spiritual life drew much from the spirituality of Opus Dei.[7] While seen as a social conservative at his appointment as archbishop in 1977, he was deeply affected by the murder of his friend and fellow priest Rutilio Grande a few weeks after his own appointment and subsequently developed into an outspoken social activist.

In 2010, the United Nations General Assembly proclaimed 24 March as the "International Day for the Right to the Truth Concerning Gross Human Rights Violations and for the Dignity of Victims" in recognition of the role of Archbishop Romero in defence of human rights. Romero actively denounced violations of the human rights of the most vulnerable people and defended the principles of protecting lives, promoting human dignity and opposing all forms of violence.

In 1997, Pope John Paul II bestowed upon Romero the title of Servant of God, and a cause for beatification and canonization was opened for him. The cause stalled, but was reopened by Pope Benedict XVI in 2012. He was declared a martyr by Pope Francis on 3 February 2015, paving the way for his beatification on 23 May 2015. Pope Francis canonized Romero as a saint on 14 October 2018.
His successor, the incumbent Metropolitan Archbishop of the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of San Salvador, El Salvador, Archbishop Jose Luis Escobar Alas, has asked Pope Francis to proclaim Archbishop Saint Romero a Doctor of the Church, which is an acknowledgement from the Church that his religious teachings were orthodox and had a significant impact on its philosophy and theology.[8]


Latin American church groups often proclaim Romero an unofficial patron saint of the Americas and El Salvador; Catholics in El Salvador often refer to him as "San Romero", as well as "Monseñor Romero". Outside of Catholicism, Romero is honored by other Christian denominations including Church of England and Anglican Communion through the Calendar in Common Worship, as well as in at least one Lutheran liturgical calendar. Archbishop Romero is also one of the ten 20th-century martyrs depicted in statues above the Great West Door of Westminster Abbey in London. In 2008, Europe-based magazine A Different View included Romero among its 15 Champions of World Democracy.[9]

Nope, cannot get past 46% in firefox or chrome  and can't get free download manager to do anything. Why not upload the whole file (instead of 3/4) to One Drive?

WHY do they hate Trump so much more than Reagan, Bush Sr., Bush Jr., etc? It makes one think.
About 1 million abortions per year in the USA, average about $1,000 each. That's at least a billion dollars / year that the crooks fill their pockets with that Trump is jeopardizing. That's certainly one of the main reasons they hate him so much more.

Trump wants to wipe out all Iranians for "Israel" and the greater Zionist project. That's not pro-life. It's pro-death.

Trump ran for president as "no more wars"

Now as president he's posturing as a pro-war chickenhawk. He had his rich daddy buy him a draft deferment so he wouldn't get sent to Vietnam, and now he wants to go to war against Iran and get Americans servicemen killed in the process.
I didn’t realize we are at war with Iran, oh that’s right, we aren’t.   ::)
I realize that Trump is not perfect, but he is leaps and bounds above anyone in the last several decades.

I get to 46% then it stops. Which download manager do you use? The free manager I've downloaded only downloads your link.

I may have figured it out, had to select 'browse' then select to download with FDM. Will see if this works out.
