Antipope Francis
“Apostolic Letter” Misericordia et Misera
on Mercy and Peace
November 20, 2016

caution-francis-tape.jpg

 

At a special press conference today, the Vatican released Francis’ latest official document, the “Apostolic Letter” Misericordia et Misera. The text is available in sundry languages at the Vatican web site, of which we make the following two available via direct links:

Amazingly, the document does not shy away from using the word “adultery”, in its opening sentence even. Of course, it only mentions this word in connection with forgiveness, but it’s still noteworthy because Amoris Laetitia had refused to use the term and spoke instead of “irregular situations”.

“Mercy” and More:
Another Truckload of Bergoglian Baloney

francis-interview-tv2000-2016

Another day, another avalanche of words from Jorge Bergoglio: first a sermon, then a televised 40-minute interview on Sunday, November 20.

In addition to it being the official close of the Year of [Bogus] Mercy, it was also the Feast of Christ the King in the Vatican II Sect (in the Catholic Church, this feast is celebrated on the last Sunday in October). In his sermon for the occasion, Francis, as was to be expected, entirely skipped over the Social Kingship of Christ and instead made it all about Christ reigning in our hearts.

“Boiling with Rage”: Francis Reacts to Formal Request for Clarification on Amoris Laetitia

francis-warns2

 

The neverending drama about Amoris Laetitia continues.

The formal request submitted by “Cardinals” Caffarra, Meisner, Burke, and Brandmuller for clarification of five specific points in the infernal exhortation Amoris Laetitia (the so-called dubia, or “doubts”), was released to the public this past Monday, since for almost two months the “Sovereign Pontiff” had refused to give them the courtesy of a response. “Cardinal” Burke added more fuel to the fire by saying in a follow-up interview that the next step would be to confront Francis with a “formal act of correction” should he persist in his errors.

Louie Verrecchio has had enough:
“Francis is an Antipope”

louie-verrecchio2

 

Deo gratias! Another Semi-Traditionalist has finally had enough and publicly confessed the truth that is plain for all to see who are courageous enough to look: Francis is not the Pope of the Catholic Church. Mr. Louie Verrecchio, formerly a star pundit of the conservative wing of the Novus Ordo Sect who came to embrace a recognize-but-resist type of traditionalism, has just made the following declaration on his blog, AKA Catholic: “Francis has judged himself a formal heretic. He is, therefore, an antipope” (source).

Vatican Theologians reportedly studying what to do about a Heretical Pope

silveira-heretical-pope-thesis

 

The fireworks just keep on coming. As the reliable Vaticanist Giuseppe Nardi reports today, a 1975 theological study by the learned Brazilian layman Arnaldo Vidigal Xavier da Silveira is currently making the rounds in the Vatican, and it’s not just any study: It’s a study on whether it is possible for a Pope to be or become a heretic, and if so, what consequences would follow from this.

What might possibly have given occasion for Vatican theologians to occupy themselves with such abstruse thoughts?

“Cardinal” Burke threatens Francis with “Formal Act of Correction” if he won’t retract the Errors in Amoris Laetitia

cardinal-burke-concerned
When on Monday, Nov. 14, the Italian journalist Sandro Magister published the five dubia submitted to Francis by “Cardinals” Caffarra, Burke, Brandmuller, and Meisner in September, requesting a “clarification” on various controverted points found in the Bergoglian exhortation Amoris Laetitia, it was certain that “clarification” was just a smoother-sounding code word for “retraction”. There is, after all, nothing left to clarify: The exhortation is a most dangerous document subversive of the very foundations of Catholic morality that brazenly attacks the indissolubility of the marriage bond; and Francis has already confirmed, sometimes more, sometimes less openly, that any ambiguous passages are to be understood in their heretical sense.

Amoris Laetitia Revolution:
Pro-Francis “Secret Police” dispatched to ensure last remaining Vestiges of Catholic Morals will be Overturned

francis-secret-police

Boy, things are really hitting the fan now over Amoris Laetitia. As the Italian conservative Novus Ordo journalist Sandro Magister revealed on his blog today, there is a pro-Francis “secret police” at work in Rome now, bullying Novus Ordo academics into compliance with Francis’ new-found perverted morality as laid out in the “Apostolic” exhortation Amoris Laetitia. This is the document that effectively permits unrepentant fornicators and adulterers — and, at least by extension, also practitionors of unnatural vice — to receive the Novus Ordo sacraments.

Four “Cardinals” officially ask “Pope” to Clarify Amoris Laetitia — Francis Refuses to Answer!

[UPDATE 15-NOV-16: Interview with “Cardinal” Burke on Challenge to Francis]

One may say it’s an Ottaviani Intervention for Novus Ordos: “Cardinals” Raymond Burke, Joachim Meisner, Walter Brandmüller, and Carlo Caffarra have taken the formal step of submitting an official set of dubia (“doubts”) to the “Pope”, presenting him with five specific questions pertaining to the disastrous and controversial “Apostolic” Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, which he released in April of this year. These five clear questions demand five clear answers: yes or no.

Elections have Consequences…

The Vatican II Sect and President-Elect Trump

francis-trump

 

On Nov. 8, 2016, Donald J. Trump was elected the 45th president of the United States of America. Since Francis is not only the Vatican II Church’s pretend-Pope but also the de facto head of state of Vatican City, diplomatic relations between the two countries will inevitably be affected one way or another.

It was clear to anyone who could read between the lines — or, sometimes, even just the lines themselves — that Trump wasn’t exactly Francis’ favored candidate. We remember especially the brilliant comment Francis made in February of this year about Trump’s expressed intent to build a wall at the border to stop the flow of illegal immigration into the United States from Mexico:

The great irony here was, of course, that Francis himself, dwelling in Vatican City, lives behind what are perhaps the entire world’s biggest walls surrounding any country.

Francis receives notorious Italian Abortionist Emma Bonino to talk Migrants

In Francis’ Vatican, the enemies of Jesus Christ are always welcome. While the papal pretender didn’t find enough time (not even 30 seconds!) to meet with the family of Asia Bibi, the Christian woman facing execution in Pakistan for allegedly “blaspheming” Islam, Francis welcomed one of Italy’s most notorious feminazi leftists on November 8, a woman who “has boasted that she and her group committed 10,141 illegal abortions” (source). Bonino was never prosecuted for her cruel deeds because she ran for public office and thus received parliamentary immunity.

Vatican Reminder: Cremation is Permitted!

francis-cremation

 

November is traditionally the month the Church dedicates to the Holy Souls in purgatory, a time when the faithful are encouraged, more than at any other point during the year, to make intercession for the faithful departed, particularly on All Souls’ Day (typically observed on Nov. 2, sometimes Nov. 3).

Just in time for this, the Vatican II Sect has issued a decree by the Congregation for the Destruction of the Faith to remind all Novus Ordo adherents that cremation is a licit way of disposing of the remains of the deceased, and that a burial of the body, although preferable, is not necessary.

Theological Freakshow in Lund: Let’s Build “Tables where we can share the Bread and the Wine”!

As you’ve probably heard, Francis and his gang went to Malmo, Sweden, on October 31 to commemorate the Protestant Reformation together with the pro-abortion, pro-sodomy, pro-contraception Lutheran Church of Sweden. (See our full coverage here.)

It was a given that we would see a few theological “gems” in all those addresses, homilies, and reflections in the two joint ecumenical events. And boy, did we!

During the joint service in Lund Cathedral, where Francis looked indistinguishable from the Lutheran male and female (!) “clergy” standing around him, the papal pretender listened docilely when the Rev.

Francis has Six New Beatitudes

francis-teacher-caution

 

Offering the Novus Ordo worship service for his adherents in Malmö, Sweden, on November 1, Francis preached a sermon in which he introduced six new quasi-beatitudes for the “modern Christian.” No, he didn’t officially introduce new beatitudes — and Jimmy Akin will no doubt take great pleasure in pointing it out — but that’s not even the main concern here, because the effect will be similar.

Here is the relevant excerpt from the homily, straight from the Vatican web site:

The Beatitudes are in some sense the Christian’s identity card.

Full Coverage: Francis celebrates Reformation with Lutherans in Sweden

francis-jackelen-lund

It is “Reformation Day” today — basically the high holyday of the Lutheran sects — and the papal pretender Francis has made good on his threat to visit Malmo and Lund, Sweden, to celebrate the “accomplishments” of the Protestant Reformation, which had its official beginning in Martin Luther’s nailing of the 95 Theses to the church door in Wittenberg, Germany, on October 31, 1517.

Earthquake in Norcia:
Basilica of St. Benedict Destroyed

Around 7:40 am local time, a 6.6 magnitude earthquake hit just north of Norcia in central Italy. The quake was so powerful that the centuries-old Basilica of St. Benedict and the co-cathedral nearby were destroyed. The following is a note posted by the monks living there:

Around 7:40 AM, a powerful earthquake struck close to Norcia….

The Basilica of St. Benedict, the historic church built atop the birthplace of St. Benedict, was flattened by this most recent quake. May this image serve to illustrate the power of this earthquake, and the urgency we monks feel to seek out those who need the Sacraments on this difficult day for Italy.
