Setting the Record Straight
The Calumny Against Pope Pius IX
His Holiness, Pope Pius IX (1846-1878)
Now that the Novus Ordo “cardinals” have chosen Mr. Jorge Bergoglio to be their “Pope Francis”, a lot of good-willed Traditionalists in the Vatican II Church are getting a bit nervous, judging from Bergoglio’s prior record as “Archbishop” of Buenos Aires and the first few days of his “pontificate”, which are clearly heralding a return to the days of Paul VI, to put it mildly.
Faced with these undesirable realities, a number of people who had been fooled into believing that with Benedict XVI a sort of “restoration of the Church” had begun — the precise illusion we had warned against shortly after Ratzinger’s election — are now spreading the idea that having to deal with a man like Bergoglio at the helm is really nothing new in the Church, because, allegedly, other Popes in the Church’s history weren’t much better before their election.
