Canadian Novus Ordo Priest picked by Vatican for Conclave Reporting utters Heresy, says Pope is mere “Figurehead”, “First Among Equals”

In an interview shown on Canadian television, the Vatican’s man for English-language reporting on the upcoming conclave, “Fr.” Thomas Rosica, has unashamedly uttered heresy against the dogma of the nature of the papal primacy. The video clip is available here; the heresy is uttered at the 7:28 min mark.

Here is a transcript of the relevant part:

Fr. Rosica: “[…]The leadership of the papacy requires somebody who can connect with people somebody who has health somebody who can move around and not be afraid of long flights.

The Curious Handshakes of Benedict XVI

This video gives convincing proof that Fr. Joseph Ratzinger, the false “Pope” Benedict XVI, routinely uses Masonic handshakes when meeting certain high-profile individuals, while shaking hands normally with others. Though the creator of this video is an anti-Catholic Protestant (and therefore does not believe Benedict XVI to be an Antipope of the False Pseudo-Catholic Church but the true Pope of the Roman Catholic Church), this is not relevant to the evidence he gives. The true Catholic Church has long condemned Freemasonry and forbidden Catholics from joining the Masons. This attitude did not change until the death of the last known true Pope, Pius XII (1958), after whom the first of the current Antipopes, John XXIII, took over and began the Masonic revolution with the Second Vatican Council.

Stumbling At the Finish Line:
Another Look at the SSPX’s Illogical Stance on the Pope Question

Commentary by Francis del Sarto

The strange ecclesial soap opera that is the series of on-again, off-again negotiations between Benedict XVI and the Society of St. Pius X in 2012 took yet another curious turn in mid-September 2012, when the SSPX’s Bishop Bernard Tissier de Mallerais revealed the contents of a confidential letter sent back in the summer by Benedict to Bishop Bernard Fellay, head of the Society.

According to Bp. Tissier:

On 30 June 2012 – this is a secret but will be revealed to the public – the Pope himself wrote a letter to our Superior General, Mgr.

The Trojan Horse of the SSPX-Vatican Negotiations

How Bp. Williamson Puts Souls at Risk
by Gutting All Meaning from a Well-Known Expression

Of the various reasons the Catholic Church down through the ages has insisted on Latin as the language of her Roman rite liturgy has been the variability of vernacular languages, and hence the reliability of them to consistently preserve word meanings. When one is dealing with unchangeable eternal truths, it is crucial to be certain that the way those truths are expressed cannot deviate in meaning, which is all too easy to do when a living language is being used as witnessed in the “New Mass”.

No Friend of Fatima:

Unspinning Christopher Ferrara’s Defense of Benedict XVI

Forever trying to persuade his readers, and presumably himself, that “Pope” Benedict XVI is “our only friend in the Vatican” – quite in contradiction to his former sarcastic use of the same phrase in reference to the very same Joseph Ratzinger – New Jersey-based attorney Christopher A. Ferrara is still busy claiming that Benedict XVI is a genuine friend of the message of Our Lady of Fatima, specifically of the Third Secret, which, he argues (and Novus Ordo Watch agrees), has only been released in part by the Vatican.

Though it is easy to understand why a man who is a lawyer by profession should habitually write in a rhetorically-persuasive style, desiring to get his readership to agree with his position, it is nonetheless not tolerable that a position should be allowed to continue to be put forth that has been clearly refuted.

The Vatican, the SSPX, and the “Restoration of Tradition”

“Thus saith the Lord: Stand ye on the ways, and see and ask for the old paths which is the good way, and walk ye in it: and you shall find refreshment for your souls. And they said: we will not walk.”

―Jeremias 6:16

“No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or he will hold to the one, and despise the other.”

―Our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ (Luke 16:13)

“But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach a gospel to you besides that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema.”

―Saint Paul (Galatians 1:8) 

“The practice of the Church has always been the same, as is shown by the unanimous teaching of the Fathers, who were wont to hold as outside Catholic communion, and alien to the Church, whoever would recede in the least degree from any point of doctrine proposed by her authoritative Magisterium.”

―Pope Leo XIII, Encyclical Satis Cognitum (1896), n.

“The Bride of Christ cannot be made false to her Spouse: she is incorrupt and modest. She knows but one dwelling, she guards the sanctity of the nuptial chamber chastely and modestly”

(St. Cyprian, cited by Pope Pius XI, Encyclical Mortalium Animos, n. 10)

“We must be on guard against minimizing these [Traditionalist] movements. Without a doubt, they represent a sectarian zealotry that is the antithesis of Catholicity. We cannot resist them too firmly.”

(Joseph Ratzinger, Principles of Catholic Theology [Ignatius Press, 1987],  pp.

Dear Reader:

The recent election of Fr. Joseph Ratzinger as “Pope” Benedict XVI, the new head of the Concilar Church, marks the beginning of a new era. After almost 40 years since the end of the Second Vatican Council, and over 46 years since the selection of Cardinal Angelo Roncalli as John XXIII, in order to finish its triumph over the Catholic Church, the Conciliar Novus Ordo Church must now move into its final stages to complete its work of inquity, that is, the setting up of a universal one-world religion, under the pretext of human dignity, that has abandoned all that is distinctively Roman Catholic.
