Semi-Trads discover the Papacy…

On the “Direct and Immediate” Authority of the Pope: Semi-Traditionalists in Shock over Papal Claims

Find the impostor!

Once again we have proof positive that the semi-traditionalist “recognize-and-resist” position is based upon a distortion (that is, denial) of the Catholic teaching on the Papacy.

As you may know, the Order of Malta is currently in trouble with “Pope” Francis for its firing of the Grand Chancellor, Albrecht Freiherr von Boeselager. Francis has instituted a Vatican commission to investigate the matter. On January 11, Catholic News Service reported as follows:

The leadership of the Order of Malta denied the legality of a Vatican investigation into the forced resignation of the group’s former grand chancellor, but the commission established by Pope Francis said it “is completely legitimate and authorized” to investigate the matter and inform the pope.

Bp. Fellay, “Bp.” Schneider, and Chaos Frank:
A Commentary on Recent Developments

As far back as April 3, 2013, a mere 21 days after his election, we predicted that Francis would eventually be known as the “Chaos Pope”; from this we derived his moniker “Chaos Frank”. After almost four years of the blasphemous-heretical buffoon at the helm of the Vatican II Sect, most people would agree. In fact, even the Novus Ordo press is finally starting to wake up to the real Francis, the one about whom we’ve been reporting accurately and realistically since day one, when everyone else was still lauding him for his great “humility” and “Marian piety of the most traditional sort”.

Vatican Sources: Francis Not Responding to Dubia “to Prevent Greater Evil”!

The new year began the same way the old one ended: with lots of breaking news on Amoris Laetitia, the infamous “Apostolic exhortation” on the family that effectively gives public adulterers the permission to receive the Novus Ordo version of Holy Communion and penance (confession) without having to cease their adulterous activities. The “theological” basis Francis provides for this absurdity is a redefinition of sin from “voluntary transgession of the divine law” into “the best you can do for the moment, although falling short of the ideal”.

“No Rupture with the Past” Update

Vatican claims Catholics can now recognize Martin Luther as a “Witness to the Gospel”


You can file this one in your “You sedevacantists are just a bunch of Protestants!” stack:

The Masonic organization that currently occupies Vatican City and falsely calls itself the Catholic Church has released a document for its annual so-called “Week of Prayer for Christian Unity” that claims that Catholics can now recognize the heretic Martin Luther as a “witness to the Gospel”.

The Week of Prayer for Christian Unity is the Novus Ordo version of what used to be the Catholic “Chair of Unity Octave”.

HERESY: Vatican “Archbishop” Gänswein says “No Proof” for God’s Existence

Christmas week should be fairly quiet in the Vatican, as most employees are on vacation and so Francis is more or less forced to keep silent. However, if the past is any indication, this could be the time when various newspapers and periodicals will publish previously-conducted interviews with the “Pope” or other clerics in and outside the Vatican.

Such as… “Archbishop” Georg Ganswein, for example, who currently holds two important Vatican positions: He is Francis’ prefect of the anti-papal household, and he is at the same time the private secretary of Antipope Emeritus Benedict XVI.

Eat This!

 In Christmas Address to Curia, Francis slams “Malicious Resistance” that accuses others and hides behind Traditions!

Well, folks, it looks like the dubia supporters have gotten their answer. Today, Dec. 22, 2016, Francis gave his annual Christmas address to the Roman Curia, which in the past had been loaded with fireworks. So too this time around.

The main focus of this year’s address was the ongoing reform of the Roman Curia, which he likened to a “surgical operation”. He listed twelve principles that guide his reworking of the Vatican apparatus: individualism; pastoral concern; missionary spirit; clear organization; improved functioning; modernization; sobriety; subsidiarity; synodality; catholicity; professionalism; and gradualism.

“Cardinal” Burke: Francis Not in Heresy, but Heretical Pope would Lose Office automatically

burke2
The Amoris Laetitia controversy is far from over. If anything, it’s entering now into its hottest phase yet.

American “Cardinal” Raymond Burke has recently given some interviews on the dubia and their non-response by “Pope” Francis and explained what is to happen next if the dubia remain unanswered. Previously Burke had already threatened a “formal act of correction” against Francis, but without giving details or a timeline. Now Burke has upped the ante.

On December 15, 2016, EWTN’s Raymond Arroyo interviewed the Novus Ordo cardinal on his nightly news program, The World Over.

The prelude to a formal schism within the Novus Ordo Sect has just reached a new stage: On Monday, Dec. 5, 2016, the Rome-based Lepanto Foundation held a conference in the Eternal City on Christian marriage and the errors of “Pope” Francis’ exhortation Amoris Laetitia. The well-attended conference was hosted by the Foundation‘s president, Roberto de Mattei, and took place only about 3 miles from the Vatican.

Brave New Mercy…

Vatican “Archbishop” Paglia: Francis might abolish Automatic Excommunication for Abortion

francis-paglia

 

It’s time to catch up on some important news from a few days ago that didn’t make it onto this blog yet.

When Francis published his “Apostolic” Letter Misericordia et Misera two weeks ago to extend indefinitely certain provisions of the Year of Mercy that had just been concluded, one of the provisions concerned the faculties given to all Novus Ordo confessors to absolve from the excommunication latae sententiae incurred automatically by anyone participating in an abortion (whether receiving, performing, or assisting at one). Previously, only the local “bishop” was able to give this absolution (which he could delegate, however), except in danger of death, according to Novus Ordo church law (cf.

Genuine Misquote or Damage Control Effort?

Dean Pinto of Roman Rota says he did Not issue Threat to Four “Cardinals”

Pio Vito Pinto

 

An interesting development has occurred, and it’s one that will probably make you chuckle.

On Nov. 29, the Spanish web site Religion Confidencial published a report according to which the dean of the Novus Ordo Sect’s Roman Rota — the Vatican’s highest appeals court — had issued a threat against the four “dubia cardinals” Burke, Brandmuller, Meisner, and Caffarra, basically for challenging Francis in public to either fish or cut bait, as it were, regarding “Holy Communion” for adulterers and other more basic moral issues in the “papal” exhortation Amoris Laetitia.

CDF Head “Cardinal” Müller on the Dubia: “Cannot get involved in the Dispute”

muller-francis_med-2

In an interview published on Dec. 1, 2016, by the German Dom Radio, the head of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Destruction of the Faith, “Cardinal” Gerhard Ludwig Muller, has weighed in on the ongoing controversy over Amoris Laetitia, specifically the five “doubts” (dubia) submitted by “Cardinals” Burke, Caffarra, Brandmuller, and Meisner.

Due to time constraints we are not able to translate the entire interview, but we will give you the most important parts:

[Müller:]

This letter [of the dubia submitted by the four “cardinals”] was addressed to the Pope himself and contained questions regarding the correct interpretation of Amoris Laetitia.

[UPDATE: “Mgr.” Pinto says he was misquoted, Religion Confidencial issues retraction]

We all know that Francis is the champion of dialogue and encounter, but when “Cardinals” Burke, Brandmuller, Meisner, and Caffarra recently did nothing more than ask five very specific questions on a very important theological matter they wanted clarification on, the ever-so-humble Argentinian bridge builder decided to put up a wall: In a defeaning silence, he simply refused to answer.

After nearly two months of receiving no reply, the Novus Ordo cardinals decided to make their questions public.

Vatican Theologians reportedly studying what to do about a Heretical Pope

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?

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.
