The “Operation of Error” in Full Swing…

The Interreligious “Prayer for Peace” from the Vatican Gardens: Jewish, Muslim, “Catholic”

Francis’ naturalist idea of obtaining peace involves planting an olive tree

“Chaos Frank” has done it again. On Pentecost Sunday 2014, he hosted an interreligious “Invocation for Peace” event at the Vatican Gardens. The main attendees were Patriarch Bartholomew I (Eastern Schismatic), Israeli President Shimon Peres (Jewish), and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas (Muslim).

Two videos of the event, the first a summary, the other the entire spectacle at full length, are available here:

The Vatican web site has made available the full text of the prayers offered to what is claimed to be the same true God, which of course is a lie.

One big happy family: All the same god, eh?

The professional defenders of the Novus Ordo Sect are going to have a tough time “explaining” this one: On Pentecost Sunday, “Pope” Francis will be conducting a prayer service for peace together with Israeli President Shimon Peres (Jewish) and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas (Muslim). The Eastern Orthodox (Heterodox, really) Patriarch Bartholomew I will also be in attendance.

The Vatican web site has made available the full text of the prayers to be offered to what is claimed to be the same true God, which of course is a lie.

A “Siri Thesis” for Ratzinger Fans…

Resignationism 2.0:
Enter “Cardinal” Scola

benedict-vs-francis.jpg

Things are topsy-turvy in Novus Ordo Land. Now they even have their very own “Siri Thesis.”

After the initial appearance in late 2013 of the position we have termed “Resignationism” — the idea that Benedict XVI’s resignation was invalid and therefore he is still Pope, and Francis a usurper — there followed a few rounds of additional theorizing by adherents of the thesis, especially after Ratzinger explicitly affirmed to a journalist that his resignation was valid indeed. At the time, we predicted that Benedict’s affirmation would still not put an end to the speculations, and we were proven right when Antonio Socci wrote his follow-up article “The Plot Thickens.” We ended our own commentary on Socci’s take with the words: “Stay tuned, everyone.

Facts and Rumors…

A Third Council of Nicea in 2025?
Do Francis & Bartholomew want a new Ecumenical Council?

Rumors are making the rounds in the blogosphere today as AsiaNews.it released a story according to which the Eastern Schismatic (“Orthodox”) Patriarch Bartholomew I revealed that “Pope” Francis and he “agreed to leave as a legacy to ourselves and our successors a gathering in Nicaea in 2025, to celebrate together, after 17 centuries, the first truly ecumenical synod, where the Creed was first promulgated.”

The full story can be read here:

When you read the text, you can see that it really doesn’t say anything about a new “ecumenical council” to be held in 2025, only that there will be a gathering in Nicea to commemorate the First Council of Nicea of 325 AD.

Symbolism that speaks Volumes

Hiding Christ from the Jews:
Francis covers Pectoral Cross in Meeting with Chief Rabbis

One of the many stops during Francis’ brief visit to the Holy Land was a meeting with the two Chief Rabbis of Israel. The Vatican posted the text of Francis’ address to the two rabbis here, and also made available this video.

In keeping with his program of refusing to ever actually evangelize the Jews (or any other non-Catholics, for that matter), and of mocking Christ our Lord, the false “Pope” Francis wore his pectoral cross behind his sash, so that it was at various times either covered partially or not visible at all.

365 Days of FRANCIS:
What Was the Worst?

francis-balcony.jpg

It’s been a full year since March 13, 2013, that fateful day when “Cardinal” Jean-Louis Tauran stepped out on the balcony of St. Peter’s and announced the election of Jorge Mario Bergoglio as “Pope Francis.” The moment the Argentine apostate appeared, the mayhem began, and we have chronicled the highlights — or lowlights, to be more precise — every step of the way. To review the facts about Rev. Bergoglio, please access our “Pope Francis” Page here; a review of our Novus Ordo Wire blog posts will provide additional insights.

Resignationism Continued…

Now “Abp.” Ganswein Weighs In:
Benedict’s Emeritus Status 
“Corresponds to Reality”

georg-ganswein.jpg

“Archbishop” Georg Ganswein, Secretary to Benedict XVI

Italian journalist and author Antonio Socci is back with more on the neverending drama surrounding what we have termed the Resignationist thesis, the idea that the resignation of Benedict XVI (Joseph Ratzinger) was invalid and he is therefore still the legitimate Pope of the Catholic Church, Francis being an impostor. (For those who don’t know, the position of Novus Ordo Watch is that all “Popes” after Pius XII have been impostors. More on that here.)

In his latest contribution, published March 2, 2014 for the Italian El Libero, Socci reveals the “serious answer” Benedict XVI’s private secretary, “Abp.” Georg Gänswein, has given to the question why Benedict sticks with the title “Pope Emeritus” (as opposed to reverting simply to “Cardinal Ratzinger”, as would have been expected) and still retains various papal insignia, such as his papal coat of arms, the continued wearing of the white cassock and zucchetto, etc.

Resignationism Reloaded

Socci: “The Plot Thickens”

“Greater Mystery” seen in
Ratzinger Response to Tornielli

Just as we predicted yesterday, not all who give credence to the idea that Benedict XVI’s resignation may have been invalid are convinced by Ratzinger’s reported reaffirmation of its validity to Italian journalist Andrea Tornielli.

“The plot thickens,” Socci says in a Feb. 26, 2014 article posted on his web site:

Socci claims that the questions he raised earlier this month have not been answered but instead the mystery surrounding Benedict’s abdication is deepening.

Socci, author of the book The Fourth Secret of Fatima, criticizes Andrea Tornielli of the Italian daily La Stampa for not releasing the full text of the alleged letter the “Pope emeritus” wrote him, saying that for a story of such magnitude, it would have been appropriate to at least reproduce the letter in its entirety, or better yet, a scanned facsimile copy showing Ratzinger’s signature and letterhead.

Resignationism, R.I.P.

Benedict XVI Speaks: “My Resignation Was Valid”

benedict-francis-zucchetto.jpg

Bad news for Resignationists — those who believe that Benedict XVI’s resignation was invalid because brought about by force. While it would allow them a convenient, non-sedevacantist way out of the problems with Francis by saying the true Pope is still Benedict, it is Joseph Ratzinger himself now who has explicitly denied the rumors and confirmed that he gave up his claim to the papacy by his own free will.

Responding to a letter written him by the well-known Italian Vatican journalist Andrea Tornielli of La Stampa, the “Pope Emeritus” clearly states:

There is absolutely no doubt regarding the validity of my resignation from the Petrine ministry.

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.
