Lamplighter Award given to those fostering the light of truth in a dark world:

To the Cardinals who sent the Dubia to the pope requesting clarification on the confusing and ambiguous papal exhortation, Amoris Laetitia. Cardinals Walter Brandmüller, Raymond Leo Burke, Carlo Caffarra and Joachim Meisner requested clear answers to five questions relating to the indissolubility of marriage and the inerrancy of the moral law. May the apostles, the first bishops, and St. Anthony, hammer of heretics, intercede for these true shepherds as they ardently defend the faith.

Millstone Award given to those who through ignorance or malice scandalize God's people:

To Fr. Horace “Tuck” Grinnell who is dismantling the orthodox little parish of St. Peter’s in Washington, VA and transforming it into an Alinsky outpost where secular community organizing and false ecumenism replace the faith. Under Fr. Tuck the faith is being mixed with dissent and indifferentism, hence, an ecumenical prayer service substituted for Mass on Thanksgiving Day. Let us call on all the historic defenders of the faith against modernism to pray that Fr. Grinnell returns to orthodoxy. Pope Leo XIII, Pope Gregory XVI, Pope Benedict XV, and Pope Pius XI, please pray for him. And especially we beg for the intercession of Mary, Mother of the clergy.

To Bishop Robert McElroy of San Diego who has embraced the most unorthodox interpretation of Amoris Laetitia of almost any bishop in the United States. After a diocesan synod on the family the bishop instructed his priests to “embrace LGBT families” and to assist those in invalid marriages to examine the “inner forum” (their consciences) to see if they feel “called” to return to the sacraments without however agreeing to live in continence as brother and sister as mandated in Pope St. John Paul II’s encyclical, Familiaris Consortio. The bishop made the false statement that “conscience” is the “real core of Catholic teaching”. A rightly formed conscience, however, never conflicts with Divine Revelation. Let us beg the intercession of St. Paul that San Diego clergy will resist teaching a gospel different from the gospel of Christ.
