Novus Ordo Priest complains:

Confessors at St. Peter’s Basilica Playing Games, Reading Newspapers while Hearing Confessions — Priest silenced

We have been telling you from the beginning that Francis’ new “mercy” is a sham. Recently, a young Novus Ordo priest from Chile found this out the hard way: On four separate occasions, as he sought to receive the sacrament of penance, he found the “priests” hearing his confessions doing other things at the same time: playing games, reading the newspaper, etc. — and three of these incidents took place at St. Peter’s Basilica in the Vatican!

Former SSPX Superior General, Fr. Schmidberger, with the current one, Bp. Fellay

The Spanish-speaking “Resistance-SSPX” web site Non Possumus has published an internal letter of Fr. Franz Schmidberger, formerly the Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X (1982-94) and currently the head of the SSPX seminary in Zaitzkofen (Germany), in which he lays out the case for full canonical recognition by Modernist Rome under “Pope” Francis and responds to various objections.

The three-page letter, dated February 19, 2016, is entitled Überlegungen zur Kirche und der Stellung der Priesterbruderschaft St.

Francis’ post-synodal exhortation Amoris Laetitia has caused the predicted chaos among conservative adherents of the Vatican II religion, although a few are still in denial. Approximately 18 hours since its official release, plenty of summaries, commentaries, and reactions continue to pour in. We are chronicling the meltdown and present the most explosive quotes from the wordy document in the following two links:

Meanwhile, the German intellectual review Merkur has published an interview with one of the country’s leading “papal” biographers and Vatican journalists, Andreas Englisch.

With his latest humongous document which virtually no one will actually read in full, “Pope” Francis has outdone himself once more. The newly-released document exceeds even his previous overlong “Apostolic Exhortation”, Evangelii Gaudium (2013). At 254 pages of printed text, 391 footnotes, and exceeding 57,000 English words, Amoris Laetitia has got to be a new record for the post-Vatican II paper factory.

francis-uh-oh.jpg

They do not say how they obtained it, or who put it together, but the indult/semi-trad blog Rorate Caeli has just published a summary of the “post-synodal Apostolic exhortation” Amoris Laetitia, which will be officially released tomorrow (April 8) at a press conference scheduled to begin at 11:30 am Rome time (5:30 am ET).

Vatican: SSPX Need Not Adhere to All of Vatican II for Canonical Recognition

In American politics, this would be called an “October surprise”. In the Vatican II religion, it is just another whim of Francis’ god of surprises: As the ink on the dreaded post-synodal exhortation Amoris Laetitia has not even dried yet, the Vatican announces a curious concession to the Lefebvrist Society of St. Pius X: Adherence to all of Vatican II is not a requirement for canonical recognition by the “Holy See”. Thus says “Mgr.” Guido Pozzo, Secretary of the Vatican’s Ecclesia Dei Commission in charge of dealing with the SSPX.

Vatican confirms April 2 meeting

“Pope” Francis meets with SSPX Superior General, Bishop Fellay

The Press Office of the “Holy See” has confirmed a newspaper report of an unannounced meeting that took place between “Pope Francis” and the Superior General of the Society of Saint Pius X, Bishop Bernard Fellay, on Saturday, April 2, at Vatican City. The Italian paper Il Foglio broke the story, quoting sources who said the meeting “was positive” and “understanding is good” between Fellay and Francis, whom Fellay had called “a genuine Modernist” in 2013.

According to Il Foglio, the discussions between the “Pope” and the Lefebvrian SSPX are moving towards a personal prelature model similar to that under which Opus Dei operates.

Vatican Heads-Up: Bishops to “Prepare All the Faithful for Reception of the Post-Synodal Exhortation”

What he has written, he has written…

This much is clear: Publication of the long-awaited so-called “Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation” of “Pope” Francis on the Synod on the Family, which will address the question of whether publicly unrepentant adulterers, fornicators, and sodomites can be admitted to the Novus Ordo sacraments, is imminent. If recent rumors are true, then the document is in excess of 200 pages, was drafted mainly by “Archbishop” Manuel “Smoochie” Fernandez, and was already signed by Francis on March 19, the feast of St.

Time again for Francis to turn all the focus on HIM

It’s that time of the year again: During the most sacred time of the year, when Catholics around the globe are supposed to be focusing on the Last Supper of our Lord Jesus Christ, that is, the First Holy Mass, at which time Christ instituted the Most Holy Eucharist and the Sacred Priesthood, the Novus Ordo Sect is redirecting everyone’s thoughts to — who else? — Francis. The all-important question on everyone’s mind is: Whose feet will Francis wash this time?

“Earth Hour” in the Vatican…

A very fitting symbol:

After a filthy display of reptiles, birds, and other animals on its facade on the Feast of the Immaculate Conception last year (cf. Apoc 18:2), it was a given that St. Peter’s Basilica, currently still under occupation by enemies of the Catholic Church, would once again turn off its lights to participate in the environmentalist “Earth Hour” on March 19, 2016, the Feast of St. Joseph.

The truth is, of course, that the lights went out in the Vatican a long time ago, that is, in reference to the light of Faith (cf.

Sharing the Loaves:
Modernist Drivel at “Papal” Retreat

(CNS photo/L’Osservatore Romano, handout)

If you’re wondering why Francis has been so silent all week, it’s because he is currently on retreat with members of the Curia in Ariccia near Rome. Unfortunately, however, Jorge Bergoglio’s silence comes at a price: We now have to hear about the Modernist tripe preached by the “papal” retreat master instead, and tripe it is.

On March 9, 2016, Aleteia’s Rome correspondent, Diane Montagna, reported on one of the “meditations” offered that day by the Modernist preacher, a certain “Fr.” Ermes Ronchi, OSM, who reflected on the question, “How many loaves do you have?” in the account of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes (see Mt 14:14-21; Mk 6:34-44; Lk 9:12-17; Jn 6:1-14).

Folks, we don’t even know how to cover this modestly, that is, without slipping into X-rated stuff. Yet, it must be exposed because it is so outrageous, so nauseating, so incredible that it cannot be passed over in silence. We are Novus Ordo Watch, after all, not Novus Ordo Ignore — otherwise we’d be Michael Voris. (Hat tip to Vox Cantoris, from whose blog we were first informed about this.)

So, how to start… OK, here are the facts:

The Kosher Church:
Vatican releases Anti-Catholic Document on Judaism

kosher-francis.jpg

On December 10, the Modernist Sect once again released another endless document attacking Catholic doctrine, this time — in view of the fiftieth anniversary of the closing of Vatican II — restating its heretical position on the Jews. The so-called “Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews”, which is actually part of the — get this — “Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian [!] Unity”, released the document The Gifts and Calling of God are Irrevocable (Rom 11:29). The title is a favorite Scriptural quote the Vatican II Church deliberately distorts in service of its heretical claim that the Talmudic Jews of our day have a valid covenant with God and can thus attain salvation without conversion to the Catholic Faith.
