Just in time for Lent!
Francis in New Interview:
“Walk in Other People’s Shoes”!
It’s almost Lent, and in case you were going to be thinking about Jesus Christ, your own soul, or a path of penance for the next 40 days, “Pope” Francis has taken steps to ensure that the focus will remain on him instead: He has graced the world with yet another one of his legendary interviews. (No one is counting anymore, but we must be somewhere around 5o now in total since 2013.)
On Shrove Tuesday, Feb. 28, the Italian homeless-run magazine Scarp de’ Tenis published its latest issue with a big picture of Francis on the cover behind the title, “Mettiamoci Nelle Scarpe Degli Altri” — “Let’s Walk in the Shoes of Others”.… READ MORE

The Papacy & the Passion of the Church
During last year’s Fatima Conference sponsored by the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen (CMRI) in Spokane, Washington, Mr. Mario Derksen, pictured below, gave a most informative lecture on the subject of the Catholic Papacy and the Church’s Mystical Passion. We are happy to be able to share the audio and also a written version of this presentation.
What has happened to the Catholic Church? This is the question that everyone who has a love for the Church is asking himself in our time. The Church of Jesus Christ is divinely guaranteed to be indefectible: She cannot change in her essence; she cannot defect from her divine mission; she cannot compromise with the errors of the world; she cannot lose the Faith and suddenly promote a different religion.… READ MORE
At the daily ding-dong school of apostasy…
On Gospel Text forbidding Adultery, Francis denounces “Casuistry”
To ensure that no word of Jesus Christ will ever go understood correctly again, “Pope” Francis has been on an unrelenting diabolical mission of twisting Scriptural texts as they come up each day in the Novus Ordo lectionary. Since his installation in 2013, the Casa Santa Marta’s most obnoxious squatter has been distorting biblical passages on a daily basis to advance his very own personal “gospel”, one in which we hear an awful lot about this world, especially the poor and the suffering, but next to nothing about the importance of the afterlife, the soul, grace, justification, faith, the rights and dignity of God, etc.… READ MORE

Almost back to normal…
Novus Ordo Watch Announcement
You may have noticed that neither our blog nor our Twitter feed have been updated in a few days, and this is simply due to a sudden bout of severe illness that is finally coming to a close. It’s actually a great way to start preparing for Lent!
We should be back to normal here shortly, perhaps another 24-48 hours.
In the meantime, why not….

The show must go on!
Gigantic Statue of “Pope” Francis comes to Ciudad Juarez, Mexico
One year ago today, “Pope” Francis visited the city of Ciudad Juarez, Mexico, which is situated directly at the border with the United States, right across from the American city of El Paso, Texas. Ciudad Juarez is an embattled city and plays a central role in the ongoing Mexican drug war. In 2010, the Juarez murder rate exceeded 3,500 people.
As part of his trip to Mexico in February 2016, the “Pope” visited Juarez, meeting there with prisoners, performing a Novus Ordo worship service, and holding a farewell ceremony at the international airport.… READ MORE
“I can’t believe it’s not Catholic!”
Francis stands up for the Rights of Tradition!
—Pagan Tradition, of course!
Original caption: “Pope Francis met with a group representing indigenous peoples on February 15, 2017 at the Vatican, speaking to them about the need to ‘reconcile the right to development, both social and cultural, with the protection of the particular characteristics of indigenous peoples and their territories’. The representatives are participating in the Indigenous Peoples’ Forum hosted in Rome by the UN’s International Fund for Agricultural Development (IFAD). The biennial meeting aims to promote greater economic empowerment of indigenous peoples.” Photo by Sipa USA (Sipa via AP Images)
No matter what happens in or around the city of Rome, you can bet your bottom dollar that Francis has something to say about it — unless it happens to be the 100th anniversary of the death of Pope Saint Pius X, or a set of dubia exposing his heretical claptrap is given him — then he mysteriously discovers the beauty of silence.… READ MORE
Mayhem at full throttle…
Francis’ Raging Mess:
On Recent Vatican News & Rumors
The Vatican today is a complete mess. Not that that’s anything new, but it’s probably never been worse than it is now. It has been well over 3 years now that Francis first told people at World Youth Day 2013 to “make a mess”, and he’s been leading by splendid example.
Ten days ago we reported on the anti-Francis posters that had mysteriously popped up on Saturday morning in Rome. This rather unusual way of criticizing the pretend-Pontifex did not end there, however. In fact, it was perhaps just the beginning: A few days ago a spoofed cover of the official Vatican newspaper Osservatore Romano made the rounds (see image below).… READ MORE

Novus Ordo Watch for your ears!
Mini Podcasts are here:
Introducing TRADCAST EXPRESS
In the 16th episode of our popular TRADCAST podcast program, released on Dec. 24, 2016, we announced that in the new year we were going to start cranking out little “quickie” podcasts as an additional service to all who enjoy TRADCAST and/or Novus Ordo Watch. We decided to call these mini podcasts “TRADCAST Express”, as they are produced “on the fly” and are only a few minutes in length. There is no fancy music, no long introduction, no show notes, not much of anything except powerful audio content.… READ MORE
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.… READ MORE

Naturalism for Football Fans
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.… READ MORE
Backlash against Bergoglio
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?… READ MORE
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:
