'Cardinal' Egan named in 'pedophile priest' lawsuit
"What did the Cardinal know and when did he know it? For years, attorneys, without success, have been trying to question New York's Cardinal Edward Egan about a priest he supervised while Bishop of the Bridgeport Diocese.

The former priest, John Castaldo, is a convicted sex offender, and he's being sued for at least the third time for allegedly molesting a young boy. And the cardinal is being named as a defendant in the law suit."

Benedict's 'ultra-conservative' image is false
"However, apart from the merits of the argument over sexual discipline, there is a problem of the public perception of the Pope's image. He is not an ultra-conservative spoiling for a fight. He is not a Pius IX, becoming increasingly defensive in his old age, still less a Pius X, who persecuted some of the finest theological intellects of the early 20th century for so-called modernism, which would now be regarded as unobjectionable and orthodox (sic).

'Cardinal' interviewed
Cottier on the 'militant and aggressive' SSPX and Bp. Williamson
"At present there is the paradox that it is easier for us to speak peacefully with the Protestants, who are further away from the Catholic Church, and who often feel nostalgic about unity, than with the traditionalists, who have remained militant and aggressive (in Paris they went as far as to occupy a church by force). But this attitude of theirs does not change the fact that they remain our brothers in faith. We must therefore support the Holy Father’s attempt to put an end to this schism, which is a great and courageous act. History teaches us that when a schism lasts too long, it will become irreversible: Lefebvre’s movement may turn into a sect. Action needs to be taken without losing time."

NOW Comments:
"Cardinal" (Fr.) Georges Cottier was ordained a priest as long ago as 1951, but it one would make a huge mistake to think that that makes the man somehow more traditionally-minded. He has been in the direct employ of Modernist Rome for the past 20 years and was "consecrated a bishop" as recently as 2003. In recent years he as shown his true colors by endorsing the use of condoms, speaking in favor of evolution at the Vatican-sponsored Darwin conference, an event where those challenging the "fact" of evolution were forbidden to speak, and in the above interview stating, among other things, that there is a common "
Catholic and Protestant tradition" in scripture interpretation. As far as the SSPX goes, it's quite instructive that he criticizes them for being "militant and aggressive" in their resistance to his Vatican II sect, unlike Protestants who engage "peacefully" in interreligious talks. Interestingly, he uses the term "militant" in a pejorative sense, which is fitting, given that the Novus Ordo Church is not the Church militant. Particularly galling to him is the SSPX's forcible rescue in 1977 of Paris' Saint-Nicolas-du-Chardonnet Church, where six Latin Masses are offered every Sunday. Another key point is his sense of urgency in destroying the Society. It is clear from this that "Pope" Ratzinger is deadly serious about bringing them into "full communion" with him asap. Our advice to the Society? Stay militant and aggressive, only turn it up a notch! Oh, and beware of Modernists bearing gifts.

Liturgical Chaos and 'Abuses'

The video slideshow embedded above is produced by an individual who wrongly thinks that there is some good to the liturgical changes, but they have been undone to an extent by "abuses" and that Benedict XVI is the great friend of Tradition who will restore the liturgy to all its glory. And it is to this end that quotes are included from "Pope" Ratzinger meant to reinforce this line of thought. Clearly, Novus Ordo Watch in no way approves that message, because, nearly four years into his "pontificate," Benedict has allowed  (just as his predecessors), such "abuses" to go unabated, from Ratzinger chum and Vienna "Cardinal" Christoph Schonborn and his hip, irreverent "Youth Masses (right, Schonborn holds orange balloon during "procession"; click photo to enlarge) to Ratzinger appointee and San Francisco "Archbishop" George Niederauer giving communion to the blatant transvestite members of sacrilegious Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to "Father" Fred Bailey's Devil "Mass" in Orange, California to the latest scandal du jour. Benedict's careful chosen rhetoric is simply pabulum for the credulous of his commitment to the true Mass, and when he bemoans liturgical destruction it eerily parallels Paul VI's remark about "the smoke of Satan entering the temple of God" in more than one way: 1. Both regard so-called liturgical "abuses" (this is a misuse of the term abuse, since the activities under discussion were and are both systemic and officially approved by the highest ranks of the Novus Ordo Church, either through commission or omission); 2. Paul VI and then-Fr. Ratzinger were instrumental in spearheading and implementing liturgical revolution both at the Council and in the years that followed, which is why the new "Mass" never was repudiated by either of them; and 3. Despite the crocodiles tears from them about the "harmful abuses," neither lifted so much as a finger to stop them, which more than anything proves where their true sympathies could be found.

Pittsburgh 'bishop' announces apology services for anyone 'harmed' by the Church
"Pittsburgh Catholic Bishop David Zubik will lead a special 'Service of Apology' on April 7 at 7 p.m. at Saint Paul Cathedral in Oakland. 'This is meant for anybody in the church who's experienced any kind of hurt,' Zubik said. 'Perhaps somebody was yelled at in a confessional, or there may have been an employment dispute, or somebody might have been a victim of abuse, or any other kind of misunderstanding that would have kept them away from the church.'"

We hope he remembers to add an apology to all those Catholics whose Faith has been stolen!

Boston 'Catholic' hospital suspected of providing abortion referrals
"Catholic Action League Executive Director C. J. Doyle stated: 'Everything we need to know about the Caritas Christi/Centene Corporation partnership and its deal with Commonwealth Care was apparent in this morning's Globe. Caritas, which refuses to release the names of its board of governors, won't even publicly say how it handles requests for abortions now -- without the requirements of a state contract.'

"'If Caritas actually intended to accept tax dollars while evading state demands for abortion coverage, every voice on the political left would be raised against it -- in the media, in the Legislature, and among the advocacy groups. Instead, we have heard nothing but silence from the usual adversaries of the Church.'"

'Hermeneutic of Deception' revisited
Reform in Continuity: Re-approaching the Second Vatican Council

"As the decades have passed, we have entered a time when there is an increasing consideration of the proper and improper interpretation (and, by correspondence, implementation) of the Second Vatican Council.…

"It has been further propelled to the fore by reason of the discussions and debates surrounding the Society of Saint Pius X and the Second Vatican Council. This has perhaps positively accelerated broader considerations of how the Council is to be approached in all its varying aspects."

NOW Comments:
The linked article is a defense of Benedict XVI's so-called "hermeneutic of continuity," which postulates that Vatican II does not represent a rupture from Tradition, but rather has an unbroken unity or continuity with it. Flowing from that argument is the contention that somehow the Council has been misunderstood as a break from the past, which in turn has led to incorrect teachings and policies. This hypothesis was first expounded by "Pope" Ratzinger in 2005 and seems to have been aimed primarily to entice semi-traditional Catholics like the Society of St. Pius X; showing them, as it were, that they can indeed embrace Vatican II "in the light of Tradition." As such, it was to be the first of a number of overtures to the group, including the "liberating" motu proprio on the Mass and the lifting of the 1988 "excommunications" imposed on the four SSPX bishops consecrated that year. However, it should take only a moment's reflection to see through the deception of the "hermeneutic of continuity" argument. Forty years passed between the end of the Robber Council and the elevation of Fr. Joseph Ratzinger as pseudo-Pope, a period which saw three of his predecessors come and go without saying a word about any alleged "hermeneutic of continuity." And this despite the fact that two of the three were the "Pope" who closed the Council and had over a decade more to see whether it was being properly interpreted and implemented, as well as one who held the reins of power for over a quarter century and never seemed to be at a loss for words on any subject. In fact, many of the most outrageous acts and pronouncements would come from Paul VI and John Paul II as confirmation of the direction taken by the post-Conciliar church. If the SSPX was not so intent on getting its side altar in the Novus Ordo Church, it would see this ruse for what it is. Unfortunately, as the link below sadly shows, such is not the case.

"According to Bishop Fellay, the next step in this whole process is the “clarification” of Vatican II. Together with Archbishop Lefebvre, Bishop Fellay holds that the Council was ambiguous, that is, that its pronouncements were vague, and could be interpreted in a Catholic sense or in a non-Catholic sense. Hence they are in need of clarification in the Catholic sense. This will solve the problem of Vatican II, it is alleged. How will this “clarification” process go? If anyone is expecting Catholic doctrine to emerge from it, he will be sorely disappointed. Ratzinger will never retreat from religious liberty.…"
