French SSPX Families Demand Resignation of Superior General Bp. Fellay

Now there is absolutely no denying it: The Society of Saint Pius X is in great turmoil.

On Feb. 15, 2014, the French blog Avec L’Immaculée (“With the Immaculate”) published a lengthy letter written by a group of French SSPX traditionalists who call themselves the Familles Catholiques Fidèles, or “Faithful Catholic Families.” The letter is addressed to the current Superior General of the SSPX, Bp. Bernard Fellay, who has been in his position since 1994.

In this open letter, an unidentified number of “faithful Catholic families” petition Bp.

The Vicar of Snark

Francis has definitely changed the Tone in the Vatican

[From The Week, U.S. Edition]

Pope Francis, Insult Comic

Hailed for striking a gentler tone, the pope is actually the vicar of snark

by Michael Brendan Dougherty

The pope’s favorite American prelate, Cardinal Sean O’Malley of Boston, opined this week on the character of the church’s biggest celebrity. According to O’Malley, Pope Francis isn’t about to launch a revolution in the church, he’s just changing the tone.

O’Malley said the shift in emphasis is necessary because the church has been in the past “too strident, maybe too repetitious.” The interview’s main pitch is of a “softer” church.

The Apostasy Advances:
“Cardinal” Tauran at Hindu Temple

[We are indebted to Tradition In Action for this story.]

The apostasy of the Vatican II Sect advances with ever greater and more alarming speed. “Cardinal” Jean-Louis Pierre Tauran is the current President of the so-called Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, having been appointed to this post by “Pope” Benedict XVI in 2007. He is incidentally also the very same individual who introduced Jorge Bergoglio as “Pope Francis” to the world on that fateful day of March 13, 2013.

On June 13, 2013, “His Eminence” visited a Hindu temple in London, where he paid homage and gave credence to the false religion of Hinduism and its idols.

Angry Birds!
Francis’ Peace Doves get Attacked

doves-attacked.jpg

[Vatican City, Jan. 26, 2014] The ‘Francis Show’ suffered a slight setback today as the Argentinian Antipope called for peace in the Ukraine at his Sunday Angelus address. After the traditional white peace doves were released (incidentally, by two children standing at Francis’ side), both of them were attacked by a seagull and a crow, right there in front of the Apostolic Palace in the Vatican. If the doves were to be a symbol of peace, perhaps this attack by the other birds has symbolic value also.

The following link has more information about the faux pas, and the video below shows stillshots of the attack and footage of the Angelus address.

Reality Check for Novus Ordos…

Conspiracy!
Meet Six High-Profile Traditional Catholic Conspiracy Nuts

A favorite tactic among Novus Ordo apologists when trying to argue against sedevacantism is to discredit it by making the position look foolish; and what better way to do that than to label it a conspiracy theory! Nowadays, few words are more effective in making people turn a blind eye to disturbing facts than that infamous and dreaded ‘C’ word: conspiracy, or, better yet, conspiracy theory.

“I don’t believe in conspiracy theories,” many people, often good-willed, are quick to point out, conveniently allowing them to ignore evidence put before them.

Vatican Hires Leading Pro-Homosexual Corporations as Advisors

by Randy Engel

[from RenewAmerica.com]

Introduction

In their efforts to bring “transparency” and “efficiency” and “financial reform” to the Government of the Vatican City State (the “Governatorato”), Vatican officials have managed to completely ignore the lack of moral credentials of the mega firms they have hired to carry out these tasks including the world’s top pro-lesbian, “gay,” bisexual, transgender (LGBT) consulting firm of Ernest & Young, now formally known as EY. Nor, apparently, did Ernst & Young officers volunteer this information before signing their formal contract with the Vatican to seal their lucrative consultation deal.

Pope’s Crackdown on Order Alarms Traditionalists
By Nicole Winfield (AP)

[Excerpts taken from ]

 — Pope Francis may have been named Time magazine’s Person of the Year, but he has come under scathing criticism from a growing number of traditionalist Catholics for cracking down on a religious order that celebrates the old Latin Mass. The case has become a flashpoint in the ideological tug-of-war going on in the Catholic Church over Francis’ revolutionary agenda, which has thrilled progressives and alarmed some conservatives.

The tyranny “Pope” Francis has unleashed upon the vigorous and growing order of the Franciscans of the Immaculate (who adopt the so-called “indult” position of trying to be traditional Catholics yet only with the “permission” of the Modernist hierarchy, to which they submit), whose only “crime” has been to prefer the pre-Vatican II liturgical books to those of the Novus Ordo, is coming to a head.

SSPX Update

“Francis Talks Too Much”

An Interview with SSPX Superior General Bishop Bernard Fellay

The Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X, Bishop Bernard Fellay, has given an interview in which he discusses “Pope” Francis, the state of the Novus Ordo Church, and how the SSPX is currently engaging in its “resistance” against both. Conducted in French, the interview is available with English subtitles in the video above, but you can also read a full English transcript here:

Here are some highlights of what Bp. Fellay says in the interview:

  • On Francis: “I think that he talks too much” and “this is not a man of doctrine.”
  • On Francis’ controversial, erroneous, and heretical statements which he sometimes later “revises”: “I think that one of the most unfortunate things about these statements is that they have spoiled his credibility; they have taken away much of the credibility of the Supreme Pontiff, so that when he has to speak about important things, now or in the future, those statements will be put at the same level as the others.

New Evidence Confirms
Two Sister Lucys of Fatima

Is this really one and the same woman?

Some Background

On May 13, 1917, the very day when Pope Benedict XV consecrated the future Pope Pius XII a bishop, the Mother of God first appeared to three shepherd children at a place called Cova da Iria at Fatima, Portugal. The eldest of the three was Lucia de Jesus dos Santos, who later widely came to be known simply as “Sister Lucy” of Fatima. The Blessed Virgin appeared a total of six times to the children, always on the 13th day of the month, from May to October of the same year.

Vatican Honors Openly Homosexual Teenage Scientist
for Cancer Research Discovery

The Vatican is now officially and openly “gay-friendly.” On Saturday, November 16, 2013, an openly homosexual Maryland high school student by the name of Jack Andraka received an award at the Vatican for his work in cancer research, having discovered a way to test for pancreatic cancer in its early stages.

While his scientific contribution is no doubt very laudable, the idea of the Vatican, which is supposed to be the highest moral authority on earth, granting an award to an open sodomite is beyond appalling.

The Mysterious Conclave of 1958
Was someone else elected before John XXIII?

It’s where all the official trouble began, it’s the one event that started it all: the conclave of October 1958, which met to elect a successor to Pope Pius XII, and, after a great many ballots and some curious shenanigans, presented Cardinal Angelo Roncalli as “Pope” John XXIII on Oct. 28. What many people don’t know is that two days prior to Roncalli’s appearance as “Pope”, namely, on Oct. 26, white smoke rose from the chimney of the Sistine Chapel already.

Beware of False Apparitions & Suspect Devotions…
divine-mercy-hyla.jpg

Why did the 1959 Holy Office Condemn the “Divine Mercy” Devotion?

Only few people have never heard of the so-called “Divine Mercy” devotion. It has its origin in the alleged visions of a Polish nun by the name of Sr. Faustina Kowalska (1905-1938), a member of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy. The “Divine Mercy” devotion is extremely popular in the Vatican II Church, owing for the most part to the efforts of the apostate bishop Karol Wojtyla, first as the “Archbishop” of Cracow, then as “Pope” John Paul II.

A great number of traditional Catholics, as well, have been led to accept this devotion, which, unfortunately, is sometimes confused with the most noble and laudable devotion to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, which is based chiefly on the revelations of Our Lord to St.
