Once more, Chaos Frank brings down the house!

Francis does it again:

New Chaos Q&A slams “Restorationists”, “Pelagians”, “Triumphalism”, Black-and-White Logic, Penance! Lauds edifying Criticism, recommends “Couldn’t-Care-Less Attitude”!

[UPDATE 09-FEB-17 18:27 UTC: Added/expanded commentary at end of post]

Whoever thought that we might get a break hearing from Francis for a day or two, is being proven wrong again today.

In the Feb. 9, 2017 edition of the Italian Corriere della Sera, Francis’ ideological twin, “Fr.” Antonio Spadaro, S.J., published today a long transcript of a question-and-answer session the “Pope” held on November 25, 2016, as part of a meeting with the superiors general of 140 male religious orders and congregations.

Francis has a Message for Super Bowl Sunday

Today is February 5, 2017, and in the United States this happens to be Super Bowl Sunday this year, the day on which the American football season closes with its annual championship game.

The ever-talkative “Pope” Francis (Mr. Jorge Bergoglio) used this opportunity to bring more of his Naturalist twaddle to a wider audience. In a spiritual equivalent of the smutty Super Bowl half-time show, Francis once again promoted sports as a great way to practice his “culture of encounter” that, so he thinks, will lead to world peace.

Overnight Surprise:
Anti-Francis Posters Appear in Rome

 
[UPDATE 04-FEB-17 20:14 UTC: More details and lots more photos can be found here]

As various blogs are reporting this morning, a slew of anti-Francis posters has suddenly appeared on public surfaces all over the city of Rome. They were put up during the night by people who are as of yet unknown. The posters look like this:

(click to enlarge / source)

The posters show a grim-looking Francis with the following Italian text: “A France’, hai commissariato Congregazioni, rimosso sacerdoti, decapitato l’Ordine di Malta e i Francescani dell’Immacolata, ignorato Cardinali… ma n’do sta la tua misericordia?

Just how “traditional” is the SSPX?

Pope Pius IX condemns Bishop Fellay

There will no doubt be plenty more news, interviews, assertions, clarifications, retractions, and rumors before it finally comes to pass, but it seems pretty clear now that the Society of St. Pius X will indeed sign an agreement with the Modernist Vatican that will give them that coveted “full communion” status and convert them into a personal prelature that answers only to, well, the worst of them all: Chaos Frank (“Pope” Francis). It also seems pretty clear that this will happen before this year is over. Recent news suggests as much:

SSPX Superior Bishop Fellay and the Vatican’s “Stamp of Approval” (now with full English Translation)

[UPDATE 01-FEB-17: Full English translation posted below, entire post revised]

On Jan. 29, 2017, the internet-based French television station TV Libertés broadcast an interview with the Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X, Bishop Bernard Fellay. The interview, which is roughly 17 minutes in length, was part of the program Terres de Mission and can be watched here:

This video has English subtitles, and a complete English transcript is posted further below.

Bp. Fellay has essentially communicated that de facto relations between the Vatican and the SSPX are already normal, and it is not necessary to wait until everything is “totally satisfactory”.

Setting the record straight…

Saint Thomas Aquinas and the Immaculate Conception

The theological authority of St. Thomas Aquinas (1225-1274) is unsurpassed in the Catholic Church. He is the Universal Doctor of the Church. He is the patron saint of theologians, philosophers, academics, and of Catholic schools. His great learning and understanding were matched only by his radiant virtue, especially his chastity, and for this reason he is also honored with the title of Angelic Doctor.

Nevertheless, it is not uncommon to find in our day, especially on the internet, people who treat the sacred teachings of the Universal Doctor as little more than glorified opinions devoid of genuine authority.

Full Audio: Bishop Sanborn destroys Recognize-and-Resist Position

Memo to all adherents of the recognize-and-resist position: The have-your-pope-and-beat-him party is over.

On January 7, 2017, Bishop Donald J. Sanborn visited Brisbane, Australia, and gave a theological conference on Sedevacantism and its ecclesiological rival, the so-called “recognize-and-resist” position, whose main proponent is the Lefebvrist Society of St. Pius X. According to “recognize-and-resist”, often abbreviated simply as R&R, Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) and his five predecessors in the Vatican are to be accepted as real Catholic Popes, but — here comes the minor rub — each believer must sift their every act of teaching and governing for what may conform to Catholic Tradition in it and reject all the rest; otherwise, one runs the risk of becoming infected with their Modernist religion to the eternal peril of one’s soul.

Vatican Chief Ecumenist laments:
No Consensus even on Goal of Ecumenism!

It’s that time of the year again: From Jan. 18-25, the Vatican II Church observes the ecumenical “Week of Prayer for Christian Unity”, the Novus Ordo replacement of the former Chair of Unity Octave, first introduced by Pope St. Pius X in 1908. Earlier this month, the Vatican issued a lengthy document for the observance of this week and the entire year (on account of it being the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation), in which it called Martin Luther a “witness to the gospel” (see our critical coverage here).

Big New Francis Interview Published

Image credit: Osservatore Romano via El País

The Spanish newspaper El País has just released a new interview with “Pope” Francis, and it’s a long one to boot: In their English translation, the answers given by Francis exceed no fewer than 6,000 words. This is not surprising for the “Pope” who has practically talked non-stop since 2013, and who has given so many interviews that we have long stopped counting (we are probably in the 30-40ish range at this point).

The Q&A with Francis was conducted in Spanish and has been made available by El País in the following languages:

Here are what are perhaps the most salient quotes of the lengthy text:

  • “To change is unnatural.”
  • “Everything is calm, everything is quiet, when everything goes right.

Resisting the Pope?
The Remnant and the Suppression of the Jesuits

 

In their desperate quest to find some historical precedent for acknowledging a blaspheming public apostate (“Pope” Francis) as the Vicar of Christ while at the same time resisting and contradicting the man’s every utterance, the semi-traditionalists at The Remnant have published a superficially-researched and sloppily-written blog post that turns out to be nothing more than yet another propaganda piece for their recognize-and-resist position.

We are talking about the blog post “Resisting Papal Errors: Another Historical Precedent for Cardinal Burke” by Chris Jackson (Jan.

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”.
