More Interviews:
3 with Francis, 1 with Benedict

The barrage of words from the Vatican will not let up: In the past few days, a total of four major interviews hit the news, three that were conducted with the “Pope”, Francis, and one with the “Pope Emeritus”, Benedict XVI. Let’s take a look at the actual texts and some highlights, in chronological order:

Interview with Francis by Heqnrique Cymerman for Israeli Media (Nov. 28):

  • Full Text in English here
  • Francis says he harshly condemns any kind of violence in the name of God
  • On Jerusalem: It “should be the capital of the three religions” — not exactly what our Lord thought when He wept over the city’s rejection of Him as the Messiah (see Mt 23:37)
  • On the afterlife: “What awaits us [is] Heaven on earth”
  • On interreligious prayer and events: “God … likes to surprise, and now we are waiting to see how he will surprise us”
  • On Talmudic Judaism (as opposed to the Judaism of the Old Covenant, which ceased with the promulgation of the Gospel): “…our roots are in Judaism.

Francis at the Blue Mosque…

“Silent Adoration”

An Act of Apostasy: Francis prays alongside the Muslim Grand Mufti inside the Blue Mosque of Istanbul, Turkey

Mr. Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) is currently visiting Turkey. November 29 marks Day 2 of his trip, and, like his predecessor Benedict XVI, he went to Istanbul and, removing his shoes, stepped into the Mosque of the Sultan Ahmed, often referred to as the “Blue Mosque”. As is visible in the photo above and the video below, Francis prayed for several minutes to the same god as the Muslims:

After the prayer, Francis said to the Muslim leader, “I also want to ask you to pray for me” (source).

Silent No More: Benedict XVI Joins Debate over Communion for Adulterers

[UPDATE 03-DEC-2014Ratzinger’s revised text now available online (click here)]

Approximately four weeks after the close of part one of the infamous Synod on the Family, the retired “Pope” Benedict XVI now adds some fuel to the inferno. Though he once promised to withdraw completely from ecclesiastical affairs, he somehow always manages to make himself heard whenever he so chooses, even if usually in an indirect or even cryptic way.

This time, Joseph Ratzinger has chosen to weigh in on the debate over whether public adulterers (the “divorced-and-remarried”) should be allowed to receive the Novus Ordo sacraments, which is one of the core issues currently under discussion in the Novus Ordo Sect’s ongoing synod of bishops, part two of which is scheduled to take place in October 2015.

The Great Comparison: The Traditional Latin Mass vs. the New “Mass” of Paul VI (1969)

The following video provides an excellent 10-minute audio-visual comparison of the Holy Catholic Mass of the ages — aka the “Traditional Latin Mass” — with the 1969 Novus Ordo Missae promulgated by the False Pope Paul VI, a rite that even then-“Cardinal” Ratzinger admitted was a “banal on-the-spot product” yet which he claimed later as “Pope” Benedict XVI was “one and the same rite” with its Traditional Latin counterpart.

Not only does Paul VI’s Novus Ordo Missae (“New Order of Mass”) represent a substantial change in Catholic belief and practice, it is also definitely invalid in most vernacular tongues, specifically in English, as was proved as early as 1968 — even one year before it was imposed as an official rite — by the late Patrick Henry Omlor (+2013).

Time for a Shocking Reality Check

The Modernists in the Vatican are laughing at all you people who believe they are legitimate Roman Catholic authorities. Giovanni Battista Montini (“Pope” Paul VI) was the single one figure in Church history most responsible for creating/shaping the apostate Vatican II Sect in Rome. Vatican II was his council (he’s the only “Pope” who signed its documents). The Novus Ordo Missae was his “Mass.” The New Sacraments were his rites, most notably the new ordinations, which are invalid and confer no grace and make no priests or bishops (see details here).

Non È Francesco:
Pressure mounts on Vatican as New Book disputes Francis’ Legitimacy

francis-silhouette.jpg

 

On September 24, we were the first English-speaking web site to provide information about Antonio Socci’s explosive new book Non È Francesco: La Chiesa Nella Grande Tempesta (“It’s Not Francis: The Church in a Great Tempest”), a work in which the Italian Novus Ordo journalist makes the case that Benedict XVI’s resignation in February 2013 was invalid and therefore the man elected to replace him is not in fact the Pope. (See our original post here.)

non-e-francesco-socci2.jpgThe timing of the release of this book is surely no accident — it first hit the shelves throughout Italy on October 3, two days before Francis’ Synod on the Family will open, a Vatican gathering of select Modernist “bishops” that has the potential to revolutionize Novus Ordo Church law and/or practice with regard to the reception of the “sacraments” by the divorced and “remarried”, that is, by unrepentant public adulterers.

“It’s Not Francis”:
Explosive New Book Argues Benedict XVI is Still Pope

[Update 01-OCT-14: More Details on Socci’s New Book, here]

Not that we want to say, “We told you so”, but… we told you so!

Days before the controversial Synod on the Family is set to begin in Rome, a synod whose decisions may force many people who are currently part of the Vatican II Church to reevaluate their position with respect to whether Jorge Bergoglio’s claim to the papacy is valid and legitimate, the Italian daily Il Foglio reports that journalist and author Antonio Socci (The Fourth Secret of Fatima) will be releasing a 296-page book in which he makes the case that the resignation of “Pope” Benedict XVI in February of 2013 was invalid.

Francis appoints Blase Cupich as “Archbishop” of Chicago

You have probably heard about it by now: “Pope” Francis has appointed Mr. Blase Cupich (pronounced SOUP-itch) as the next “Archbishop” of Chicago, Illinois, the former diocese of the notorious “Cardinal” Joseph Bernardin, most recently headed by “Cardinal” George. Up until this point, Cupich had been the “bishop” of Spokane, Washington, appointed to this office by “Pope” Benedict XVI. First chosen to be a “bishop” by “Saint” John Paul II, a quick review of the facts about Cupich indicates that he is very much a man after Francis’ heart.

Ratzinger 1972:
Communion for “Divorced-and-Remarried” Not Impossible

[UPDATE: Did Ratzinger retract his essay in 2014? Not Quite — the facts here: Benedict XVI weighs in on Communion Debate]

At a time when sparks are flying ahead of the controversial Synod on the Family that “Pope” Francis has scheduled to begin on October 5, 2014, we thought it would be a good idea to share once more with our readers — as we already did in March of this year — the little-known fact that among the very first “Catholic” theologians to try to find a way to permit public adulterers (the “divorced-and-remarried” in the Vatican II Church that didn’t manage to get an annulment) to receive the Novus Ordo sacraments was none other than the suit-and-tie Modernist Fr.

Benedict XVI and the “Prophetic Mission of Fatima”

[UPDATED 16-MAY-2016]

Every so often, someone with a soft spot for the old Modernist Joseph Ratzinger (“Pope” Benedict XVI) digs up a quote from a homily he gave in 2010 (see video above) in which he speaks somewhat cryptically about the apparitions of our Lady at Fatima and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary:

We would be mistaken to think that Fatima’s prophetic mission is complete. Here there takes on new life the plan of God which asks humanity from the beginning: “Where is your brother Abel […] Your brother’s blood is crying out to me from the ground!” (Gen 4:9).

Seven Years Later: Benedict XVI’s Summorum Pontificum Critically Examined

The Indult Mass:
Beautiful to behold, just like the Forbidden Fruit

July 7 marked the seven-year anniversary of the release of Summorum Pontificum, the much-acclaimed “Apostolic Letter” Motu Proprio of “Pope” Benedict XVI. At the time, we published a critical examination of this document and its accompanying explanatory letter, warning traditionalists everywhere that the “Ratzinger Indult” was not what it seemed and put the Traditional Latin Mass on equal footing with the abominable Modernist Novus Ordo Missae of Paul VI, outrageously claiming that the two were simply two expressions of the same Roman rite!

Paraguayan Diocese Under Investigation Fires Back: Priest Accused of Homosexual Conduct ‘Recommended by Cardinal Ratzinger’

You may have heard that the diocese of Ciudad del Este, Paraguay, is currently under investigation by the Vatican. Its vicar general, Fr. Carlos Urrutigoity, has a history of homosexual abuse allegations in the United States (Scranton, Pennsylvania), from where he was eventually transferred to Paraguay. A few days ago, “Cardinal” Santos Abril y Castello announced that priestly ordinations were suspended in the diocese until further notice. (A brief summary of the case can be found here.)

But now, the diocese has fired back: In a lengthy defense of its local ordinary, “Bishop” Rogelio Ricardo Livieres Plano, the diocese states flat-out that the accused predator priest, Fr.

A “Siri Thesis” for Ratzinger Fans…

Resignationism 2.0:
Enter “Cardinal” Scola

benedict-vs-francis.jpg

Things are topsy-turvy in Novus Ordo Land. Now they even have their very own “Siri Thesis.”

After the initial appearance in late 2013 of the position we have termed “Resignationism” — the idea that Benedict XVI’s resignation was invalid and therefore he is still Pope, and Francis a usurper — there followed a few rounds of additional theorizing by adherents of the thesis, especially after Ratzinger explicitly affirmed to a journalist that his resignation was valid indeed. At the time, we predicted that Benedict’s affirmation would still not put an end to the speculations, and we were proven right when Antonio Socci wrote his follow-up article “The Plot Thickens.” We ended our own commentary on Socci’s take with the words: “Stay tuned, everyone.

To be clear: “Cardinal” Schonborn is the one on the left

Every year, the moral sewer known as the continent of Europe holds a singing competition among its various nations, which is known as the Eurovision Song Contest. It was only a matter of time, of course, before the neo-pagan, politically-correct, and sexually-aberrant Gaystapo movement would find a way to force its ideology on the show, and this took place in an unprecedented way in the 2014 edition of the contest, where Austrian Thomas Neuwirth performed a spectacle not seen in the “mainstream world” since pagan Rome: Under his stage name “Conchita Wurst”, dressed as a woman complete with make-up, earrings, and wearing a long dress, yet retaining a full beard for maximum shock value, he presented the song “Rise Like a Phoenix” — and won.
