It was anything but heavenly. At 7:00 pm local time today, the Vatican presented a most undignified spectacle: A light-show entitled Fiat Lux — “Let there be light” (cf.

We welcome all our readers to this solemn opening of the Year of Exclusion, Judgment, and Condemnation — our special jubilee year that begins today, December 8, 2015, the Feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Most Blessed Virgin Mary. It will end on November 20, 2016, thus running concurrently with — and in direct opposition to — the Novus Ordo “Year of Mercy” opened by Antipope Francis today.
