The Modernist monstrosity known as the Second Ecumenical Council of the Vatican opened on October 11, 1962, and officially closed on December 8, 1965, almost exactly 50 years ago. “Vatican II”, as it came to be known, laid the doctrinal and pastoral groundwork for the Novus Ordo Religion, which is why in most cases, the “New Catholicism” that emerged after the death of Pope Pius XII (1958) refers back into the past no further than “Pope” John XXIII (Angelo Roncalli, d. 1963), its founder, and his disastrous council, where Catholicism was essentially demolished and reinvented from the ground up.

Vatican II, which was solemnly promulgated and imposed by Roncalli’s successor, “Pope” Paul VI (Giovanni Battista Montini, d. 1978), has been called the “French Revolution in the Church”, and with good reason, as it introduced the Freemasonic notions of liberty, equality, and fraternity from the revolution of 1789 into the structures of the Catholic Church under the concepts of religious freedom, ecumenism, and collegiality, the three pillars of the council that have caused havoc throughout the Catholic world ever since.

Philosophically considered, the father of Modernism is Immanuel Kant (1724-1804), whose chief work Kritik der Reinen Vernunft (Critique of Pure Reason) was put on the Index of Forbidden Books. Kant’s revolutionary philosophy, which made truth consist not in conformity of the mind to reality, but in conformity of reality to the mind, came to be termed the “Copernican revolution in philosophy”. Similarly, we may say that the Second Vatican Council constituted the “Copernican revolution in theology,” because it transformed theology from being clearly theocentric (God-centered) into being anthropocentric, that is, man-centered. Since Vatican II, everything in the Roncalli Sect (the false “Catholic Church” which we also term the “Novus Ordo Sect” or “Vatican II Church”) revolves around man. Even God Himself has been relegated to little more than a servant of man, whose only purpose is to forgive our sins, solve our problems, and provide us with a nice life, both in this world and in the next:

God is dethroned in the Novus Ordo religion, and man is put in His place. This is eerily reminiscent of St. Paul’s warning in 2 Thessalonians 2 of the “revolt” that must “come first” after he who “withholdeth” is “taken out of the way”, by whom is meant, as Cardinal Manning explains, the true Pope:

Bishops at the council

With a true Pope out of the way, the forces of evil have unfettered reign to impose their wickedness, their apostasy, on the entire globe, even under the guise of a faux “Catholicism” that is far removed from the real Catholicism of the past, something that is easily seen when comparing the magisterial documents of the true Church before the Roncalli usurpation in 1958 with the documents that were issued after. This web site is dedicated to proving that disparity between the true Catholic Church and the false Modernist sect that retains the name of Catholic but has emptied the label of its distinctive meaning.

On October 20, 2012, our friends at True Restoration dedicated a special three-hour episode of its edifying Restoration Radio program to examining and refuting the heresies and errors of the Second Vatican Council. Its special guest was Bishop Donald J. Sanborn of Most Holy Trinity Seminary in Brooksville, Florida, who explained at length how the documents of Vatican II contradict the prior and true Catholic teaching on a number of important points, and how the council embraced the very errors previously condemned by the Church’s authoritative Magisterium.

This show is available to the public for free, sponsored by Novus Ordo Watch. You can access it at this link:

In addition to this highly-informative audio broadcast, in which Bp. Sanborn explains the Catholic doctrine and Vatican II’s opposing Modernist errors using exceptional clarity and easy-to-understand language, Restoration Radio is now also making available a transcript of the entire program.
