All the Men behind the Opus Dei Curtain: Randy Engel weighs in on the Drama surrounding Church Militant

 

In July of 2016, Novus Ordo editor and author E. Michael Jones published a sordid tell-all book against Church Militant and its frontman, Michael Voris, entitled The Man behind the Curtain: Michael Voris and the Homosexual Vortex. The official description of the publication reads as follows:

The Man Behind the Curtain: Michael Voris and the Homosexual Vortex by E. Michael Jones. In April 2016 Michael Voris’s homosexual past finally caught up with him. The crusading on-camera face of Church Militant TV who had been the scourge of homosexuals in the Catholic Church turned out to be a homosexual himself and tried to bring closure to the scandal by outing himself.

Francis appoints notorious Jesuit James Martin as Consultant for Vatican Secretariat for Communications

Anyone who was still under the impression that “Pope” Francis was a tough opponent of the homosexualist agenda, will definitively be disabused of this illusion now: On April 12, 2017, the Vatican announced that “Pope” Francis had appointed the notorious Jesuit LGBT-sensitive “Fr.” James Martin a consultant for the Vatican Secretariat for Communications, along with 12 other people. The secretariat was created by the “Pope” in 2015 and includes the Holy See Press Office, Vatican Radio, the Vatican Television Center, the Vatican Publishing House, and the Vatican Internet Service, among others.

John Daly destroys a foundational pillar of false traditionalism

Faith and Authority:
When is Disobedience Legitimate?

 

One of the foundational pillars of the popular “recognize-and-resist” position of the Society of St. Pius X and their theological cousins is the idea that whenever a lawful ecclesiastical authority, such as the Pope, abuses his office by giving a command that ought not to be given, then his inferiors have the right, perhaps even the duty, to resist it, that is, they are permitted or required to disobey by refusing to carry it out. Conversely, the recognize-and-resist adherents maintain that if an action is laudable and profitable to the Church or to souls and yet it is being forbidden by a legitimate Catholic authority for an unjust or insufficiently good reason, then it is licit to carry it out anyway, despite the superior’s prohibition.

Ninety years of Joseph Ratzinger

“Pope Emeritus” Benedict XVI turns 90

April 16 of this year marks the 90th birthday of Joseph Alois Ratzinger, more commonly known by his stage name, “Pope Emeritus” Benedict XVI. As Novus Ordo, semi-traditionalist, and secular TV and print media, web sites, and blogs will probably try to surpass each other in heaping praise upon the “orthodox, conservative Pope”, that “Great Restorer of Tradition”, we will use the occasion to remind people that Father Joseph Ratzinger — for that is all he is, never having received a valid consecration as bishop, much less the Papacy — has been a Modernist from his earliest days and is one of the most dangerous enemies of the Faith the Catholic Church has ever known.

The Francis Show, Holy Thursday Edition

He kisses tenderly because he can…

[UPDATE 15-APR-17 17:07 UTC: It has come to our attention that in the foot-washing rite in use before Pope Pius XII’s restoration in 1955, the rubrics mandated the kissing of the feet that were washed. We apologize for not being aware of this and have revised this post accordingly. It changes nothing, however, in our essential critique of Francis’ actions, since he is obviously not trying to restore traditional practice and the Novus Ordo rubrics do not mandate kissing.]

Holy Thursday is one of the most beautiful days of the liturgical year.

Ugly as Sin: The Vatican’s 2017 Easter Card

It’s that time of the year again when Jorge Bergoglio sends out greeting cards, and it’s not pretty — literally.

For Easter this year, Francis chose a design by the same artist whose work was featured on the 2014 Christmas card, which drew everybody’s immediate attention to a donkey’s rump, which was the most prominently featured part of the card.

Victor Delhez is the man’s name, and a picture of his Risurrezione engraving is displayed on the front of Francis’ official Easter card. Here is what it looks like (click picture to enlarge, at your own risk):

The inside of the card looks as follows:

Out of all the beautiful paintings of the Resurrection and the Resurrected Christ they could have chosen, the Vatican under “Pope” Francis chose, of course, one of the ugliest designs they could find.

The Crucified Christ Betrayed:
The Novus Ordo Good Friday Prayer for the Jews

 

The Roman Catholic Church, in her loving kindness and care, having been entrusted by the Son of God with the mission to preach the Gospel and convert all men to the true Faith (see Mk 16:15-16), greatly desires the salvation of all people. Knowing that man was not made for this world, but for eternal beatitude in Heaven, she lovingly seeks to detach him from the state of sin he finds himself in and lift him up to the life of Faith and virtue through the grace merited by our Lord Jesus Christ, who declared: “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.

Francis’ homily of April 4, 2017

Bergoglio blasphemes again:
Jesus Christ “made Himself the Devil”!

Only the horns and the tail are missing:
The Vatican’s Blasphemer-in-Chief Jorge Bergoglio

The blasphemies of Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) are becoming ever more frightful. Just the other day we reported on his joke about the Most Holy Trinity (see here) during a private audience, and today we have another blasphemy to add to the ever-growing list: In his homily of April 4, 2017, Francis said that our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ “made himself the devil” for us!

To clarify right from the outset: Yes, he really said it (it’s on the Vatican web site).

Four Years of Chaos Frank:
A Press Review

 

It was on March 13, 2013, that most people heard of the Argentinian Jesuit Jorge Mario Bergoglio for the very first time. He was presented to the world as “Pope Francis”.

Presumably, most who witnessed the first appearance on the balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica will never forget the unusual experience: There he was, the first papal claimant to take the name “Francis”, clad entirely in white, without the customary red stole for the urbi et orbi blessing, looking at a jubilant crowd. His initial words of buona sera — “good evening” — and his subsequent request for the people gathered in St.

John Vennari has died

Long-time Editor of “Catholic Family News”

John Vennari has died

Mr. John Vennari (1958-2017)

Mr. John Vennari, the long-time editor of the recognize-and-resist flagship publication Catholic Family News, has died at the age of 59. This was reported by his family on Mr. Vennari’s Facebook page. The indult blog Rorate Caeli also posted a notification.

Vennari passed away on April 4, 2017, after a difficult battle with cancer, which had only been discovered about a year ago. He is survived by his wife Susan and their children.

Mr. Vennari’s death comes less than 2 years after the sudden passing of “Fr.” Nicholas Gruner, head of the Fatima Center in Fort Erie, Canada.

Vatican issues cunning Document
on SSPX Marriages

[UPDATE 04-APR-17 18:00 UTC: Official SSPX Press Release concerning this document]

The Vatican has just added a bigger piece of cheese to the mousetrap it has set for the SSPX.

Today, April 4, the Modernist Vatican took another significant step towards fully “integrating” the Lefebvrist Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) into that much-vaunted “full communion” with itself.

In a letter dated March 27 but not released until today, the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei instructs local ordinaries (i.e. “bishops” of dioceses) that they are permitted to grant faculties for witnessing marriages to priests of the SSPX operating in their dioceses, given certain stipulations laid out in the document.

Another trip, another blasphemous logo…

Official Logo for Francis Visit to Egypt: Christian Cross put on a par with Mohammedan Crescent

(click image to enlarge)

Antipope Francis, a.k.a. “Pope Sheikh”, has scheduled another one of his infamous apostate “apostolic” journeys abroad, this time to Egypt, from April 28-29. As for all other Beroglian trips outside Italy, this one too comes with its own official logo, which was just released by the “Catholic Church” in Egypt.

In the past, these logos have typically raised eyebrows, because they either looked effeminate, bizarre, or exaggerated the person of Francis to the point where in a number of cases the logo did not even include a cross or any reference to Jesus Christ (see, for example, the logo for the 2015 trip to the U.S.
