A new heresy for an old heretic…

“God cannot be God without Man”!

Francis’ Latest Heresy

We’re used to always hearing the same claptrap from Chaos Frank, but on June 7, 2017 he surprised the world with a new heresy — well, it was new for him anyway: In his catechesis for the General Audience, the papal pretender made the outrageous, blasphemous, and heretical claim that God has need of man, that God cannot be God without us.

Let’s have a look at Francis’ exact words, first in the original Italian:

Cari fratelli e sorelle, non siamo mai soli.

Pope Pius XII on the Papacy…

Does this Apply to Francis?

These days a lot of semi-traditionalist bloggers and journalists love to excuse their absurd acceptance of the public apostate Jorge Bergoglio as the Vicar of Christ (“Pope Francis”) on the grounds that the “human element” of the Church is subject to all sorts of errors, weaknesses, and failures.

In its May 2017 issue, Inside the Vatican just published a speech of Pope Pius XII, also available online, that is indeed “still relevant today”, as editor-in-chief Robert Moynihan says (p. 4). The most relevant portion of the text, we believe, is this part:

The Pope has the divine promises; even in his human weaknesses, he is invincible and unshakable; he is the messenger of truth and justice, the principle of the unity of the Church; his voice denounces errors, idolatries, superstitions; he condemns iniquities; he makes charity and virtue loved.

A real Pope speaks…

Pope Pius XII destroys Amoris Laetitia and Francis’ False-Mercy Gospel

What a breath of fresh air it is to hear a true Pope speak, a genuine Vicar of Christ, through whom is heard the voice of St. Peter. Clarity reigns, confusion and doubt are put aside, and orthodoxy is affirmed. And it is no wonder, for every true Pope is a true shepherd of the flock of Christ: “…the sheep follow him, because they know his voice. But a stranger they follow not, but fly from him, because they know not the voice of strangers” (Jn 10:4-5).

Instruction from the Holy Office under Pope Pius XII condemning “Situation Ethics”

Contra Doctrinam (1956)

Instruction on “Situation Ethics” to All Ordinaries and to Teachers in Seminaries, in Athenaeums, or those Teaching in Universities of Studies, and to Lecturers in Houses of Religious Studies
February 2, 1956

Contrary to the moral doctrine and its application that is traditional in the Catholic Church, there has begun to be spread abroad in many regions, even among Catholics, an ethical system that generally goes by the name of a certain “Situation Ethics,” and which, they claim, does not rest upon the principles of objective ethics (which ultimately is rooted in “Being” itself), rather, it is not merely subject to the same limit as objective ethics, but transcends it.

Radio Message of Pope Pius XII

La Famiglia (1952)

Radio Message on the Occasion of “Family Day”
March 23, 1952


1. The family is the cradle of the birth and development of a new life, which needs to be cared for and nurtured, lest it perish,: this right and fundamental duty given and imposed immediately by God upon parents.

The content and end of education in the natural order is the development of the child to become a complete man: the content and end of Christian education is the formation of the new human being, reborn in baptism, as a perfect Christian.

Address of Pope Pius XII

Vegliare con Sollecitudine (1951)

Address to the Italian Association of Catholic Midwives
October 29, 1951


INTRODUCTION.

The midwife’s Christian duty.

BELOVED DAUGHTERS, the object of your profession, the secret of its grandeur and its beauty lies in this, that you guard with care the silent, humble cradle wherein Almighty God has infused an immortal soul into the seed provided by the parents, and this you do in order to give your professional assistance to the mother and to prepare a successful birth for the child she carried in her womb.

When you reflect on the wonderful collaboration of the parents, of nature and of God, as a result of which a new human being is born to the image and likeness of the Creator (see Genesis 1:26-27), you cannot help valuing at its proper worth the precious co-operation you contribute to an event of such importance.

Celebrating the Centennial

Our Lady of Fatima’s 100th Anniversary

Today is the great 100th Anniversary of the first apparition of Our Lady of the Rosary at Fatima, Portugal — a perfect time to stop for a moment and recall to mind and ponder the great events that took place during the incredibly momentous year of 1917. What follows is a brief historical review, and then a list of resources at the end.

Our Lady of Fatima: A Brief Overview

The Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to three little shepherd children at a field called Cova da Iria at Fatima for a total of six different times, between May 13 and October 13, 1917.

Allocution of Pope Pius XII

Quamvis Inquieti (1946)

Allocution of His Holiness Pope Pius XII to to the Fathers of the Society of Jesus, Delegates in General Congregation XXIX, Sep. 17, 1946


Now there is nothing that calls us more urgently and pressingly than to restore the authority of religion and Christian moral discipline with due honor and vigor. Alas, into what times we have fallen because of the negligence of those immortal goods given to us by God! Wherever one looks one sees those who are totally ignorant of the Catholic faith, even the rudiments of religion itself. We see those who see nothing impious in crimes and license, those who disregard even the most elementary norms of morality and justice.

On the “heretical Pope” question…

White Smoke, Anti-Pope:
A Response to “Fr.” Brian Harrison

The Rev. Brian Harrison, O.S., is a former professor of theology of the so-called Pontifical Catholic University of Puerto Rico. Australian by birth, he is a convert to the Vatican II Sect from Presbyterianism (1972). Harrison belongs to the conservative/semi-traditionalist wing of the Novus Ordo Sect and has contributed to publications such as The Remnant, The Latin Mass, This Rock (now Catholic Answers Magazine), and Living Tradition, whose associate editor he is. One of the few clerics of the Modernist Sect who is willing to deal with traditionalist issues, Harrison is often tapped when the Novus Ordo Church needs someone to weigh in on traditionalist controversy, especially Sedevacantism.

Making sense of today’s craziness

The Papacy & the Passion of the Church


During last year’s Fatima Conference sponsored by the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen (CMRI) in Spokane, Washington, Mr. Mario Derksen, pictured below, gave a most informative lecture on the subject of the Catholic Papacy and the Church’s Mystical Passion. We are happy to be able to share the audio and also a written version of this presentation.

What has happened to the Catholic Church? This is the question that everyone who has a love for the Church is asking himself in our time. The Church of Jesus Christ is divinely guaranteed to be indefectible: She cannot change in her essence; she cannot defect from her divine mission; she cannot compromise with the errors of the world; she cannot lose the Faith and suddenly promote a different religion.

2017: Year of Anniversaries

Pondering the year ahead…

 

2017: Year of Anniversaries

Another year has passed. It is now 2017 Anno Domini. The reason we live in this time period of history and not in any other is a matter of Divine Providence. In His perfect omniscience and omnibenevolence, the Triune God, “who will have all men to be saved, and to come to the knowledge of the truth” (1 Tim 2:4), has placed us in the world at this time and no other because, despite how it may seem at times, this is the period of world history that is most conducive to the eternal salvation of our very own particular soul.

What happened 58 years ago today?

Smoke Signals:
The White Conclave Smoke of Oct. 26, 1958

We realize we’ve brought this up a few times before, and we don’t want to beat the topic to death, but there are probably a lot of new readers of our site out there now who may not be aware of what happened 58 years ago today at the conclave that was taking place in Rome to elect a successor to Pope Pius XII.

As happens after the death of every Pope, so too in 1958 the cardinals gathered in the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City to determine who would succeed the late Pius XII, who had died on Oct.

Pope Pius XII
Mar 2, 1876 – Oct 9, 1958

October 9, 2016, marks the 58th anniversary of the death of the last known true Pope, His Holiness Pius XII, born Eugenio Pacelli, reigned 1939-1958. To honor and remember him, we are sharing the video below of a broadcast clip shown in 1958 at the passing of the Supreme Pontiff.

When Pius XII died, the Novus Ordo Religion was as yet unknown to the world, for it would not come into existence until later, beginning with the election during a bizarre conclave of the first Modernist Antipope, John XXIII (Angelo Roncalli).
