Italian Journalist Antonio Socci:
Ratzinger Resignation “May Not Be Valid”
Author and Journalist Antonio Socci
One year after Benedict XVI’s historic announcement of his impending resignation from the “papacy”, well-respected Italian journalist and author Antonio Socci reflects on what led Fr. Joseph Ratzinger to give up his claim to the papal office on February 28, 2013.
Writing for the Italian daily Libero on Feb. 12, 2014, Socci says that details about the resignation have emerged that may render it invalid under church law. (Both Novus Ordo and traditional Catholic canon law state that, among other possible reasons, resignation obtained through fear unjustly inflicted is invalid; see Novus Ordo Canon 188; Catholic Canon 185.)… READ MORE

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.”

Cesar Scicchitano is the name of a 49-year-old Argentinian Novus Ordo priest who is the frontman of the heavy-metal band Los Pecadores (“The Sinners”). While such is by no means an unusual occurrence in Novus Ordo Land, this one comes with an added twist: “Father” Cesar’s undertaking has the explicit blessing of Jorge Bergoglio, the man otherwise known as “Pope Francis.” And that’s just the beginning.
According to a report published by the The China Post, Scicchitano has been friends with Francis for nearly twenty years.… READ MORE
Video of Interreligious Prayer Gathering in Assisi 1986
“Saint” John Paul the Great… Apostate!
The above video clip shows more of the “saintly” deeds of the apostate bishop Karol Wojtyla, best known under his pseudonym “Pope John Paul II”. This is the man the current usurper in Rome, “Pope” Francis, will “canonize” as a “Catholic Saint” on April 27 of this year.
The 1986 Assisi Interreligious Prayer for Peace gathering was one of the most outrageous acts of blasphemy ever committed by the Vatican II Sect, in a Catholic holy place! A whole book could be written about the event and how diametrically opposed it is to traditional Catholic teaching, but in this blog post we can only touch upon some select points.… READ MORE

The words and deeds of Pope Francis since his election earlier last year have been so little Catholic and so outrageous, that the idea that recent popes have not really been Popes (”sedevacantism”) has been given a new lease of life.

There’s Your New Evangelization: Vatican Translator dies a Lutheran because “Cardinal” Ratzinger had told her NOT to Convert
[UPDATE 2/6/14: Accuracy of story confirmed – Spath herself was source of this information]
This past Sunday, Feb. 2, 2014, a lady by the name of Sigrid Spath passed away in Rome. Austrian by birth, Spath had worked for the Vatican as a translator of official church documents since the time of Paul VI. She translated Italian, Latin, French, English, Spanish, and Polish texts into German.
Now that she has passed, Vatican Radio has released a brief article on her life and work, and it contains a veritable bombshell.… READ MORE
A Flip for every Flop…
The Contradictions of Jorge Bergoglio
Francis is clearly the most blatant Modernist of all the Novus Ordo Antipopes. He perfectly embodies the spirit of Vatican II and is the veritable incarnation, as it were, of the conciliar document Gaudium Et Spes. Like the Modernists and other innovators condemned by the Church, his chief characteristics include audacity and love of novelty. The following two passages taken from magisterial documents are very applicable to the entire frame of mind advanced by the Second Vatican Council and embodied fully by Jorge Bergoglio:

As for the rest, We greatly deplore the fact that, where the ravings of human reason extend, there is somebody who studies new things and strives to know more than is necessary, against the advice of the apostle.
