One day before the Immaculate Heart of Mary
Coming August 21:
Total Solar Eclipse over the United States
Ultimately it will probably be of no great significance, but we might as well spread the announcement: One day before we celebrate the feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, there will be a total solar eclipse over parts of the United States this year:

On Aug. 21, 2017, people across the United States will see the sun disappear behind the moon, turning daylight into twilight, causing the temperature drop rapidly and revealing massive streamers of light streaking through the sky around the silhouette of the moon.

Francis sends cordial Letter to Left-Wing Activist Hebe de Bonafini
On May 24, 2017, the Spanish-language blog Catapulta — to all appearances an Argentinian web site of the recognize-and-resist position — published a post breaking the news that “Pope” Francis has written a letter to the anti-Catholic activist Hebe de Bonafini.
De Bonafini is a left-wing extremist from Bergoglio’s home turf of Buenos Aires, Argentina. The 88-year-old woman is co-founder and president of the Asociación Madres de Plaza de Mayo (Mothers of the Plaza de Mayo Association). She once admitted to relieving herself behind the altar of the metropolitan cathedral of Buenos Aires during a protest in 2008.… READ MORE
Francis visits Genoa, Italy…
Chaos Frank warns of ‘Google and Wikipedia Priests’, ‘Crows that will Eat your Eyes’
This is how Francis likes it: himself in the spotlight, talking
Francis spent all day in Genoa today, and there he did plenty of what he loves to do most: talk.
Describing it as an “intense 1-day apostolic visit”, Vatican Radio lists its six major events as follows (videos are linked):

Pope Pius XII on the Papacy…
Does this Apply to Francis?
These days a lot of semi-traditionalist bloggers and journalists love to excuse their absurd acceptance of the public apostate Jorge Bergoglio as the Vicar of Christ (“Pope Francis”) on the grounds that the “human element” of the Church is subject to all sorts of errors, weaknesses, and failures.
In its May 2017 issue, Inside the Vatican just published a speech of Pope Pius XII, also available online, that is indeed “still relevant today”, as editor-in-chief Robert Moynihan says (p. 4). The most relevant portion of the text, we believe, is this part:

The Pope has the divine promises; even in his human weaknesses, he is invincible and unshakable; he is the messenger of truth and justice, the principle of the unity of the Church; his voice denounces errors, idolatries, superstitions; he condemns iniquities; he makes charity and virtue loved.

Pope Pius XII destroys Amoris Laetitia and Francis’ False-Mercy Gospel
What a breath of fresh air it is to hear a true Pope speak, a genuine Vicar of Christ, through whom is heard the voice of St. Peter. Clarity reigns, confusion and doubt are put aside, and orthodoxy is affirmed. And it is no wonder, for every true Pope is a true shepherd of the flock of Christ: “…the sheep follow him, because they know his voice. But a stranger they follow not, but fly from him, because they know not the voice of strangers” (Jn 10:4-5).… READ MORE

Blasphemy at Fatima:
The “Basilica of the Holy Trinity”
On May 13, we celebrated the 100th anniversary of the first apparition of Our Lady of Fatima. While most people are probably familiar with the beautiful Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary at the site of the apparitions, constructed from 1928-1953, many people may be unaware of the Modernist monstrosity that the Vatican II Sect has placed right across from the traditional basilica. It is officially called the “Basilica of the Holy Trinity” and was opened in 2007. In 2004, when construction was just beginning, “Pope” John Paul II gave a fragment of the Vatican’s tomb of St.… READ MORE
Interview with SSPX Superior General
Bp. Bernard Fellay:
‘Rome has given me Permission to ordain Priests freely’
The United States District of the Lefebvrian Society of Saint Pius X has just released a 30-minute video interview with the Society’s Superior General, Bishop Bernard Fellay. Recorded on April 21, 2017, the interview predates the recent turmoil in the Society’s French District over the removal of seven deans protesting the Vatican’s “concession” on SSPX marriages.
The full interview, conducted in English, can be watched here:
A transcript of the interview has been posted by the SSPX U.S. District and is accessible here.… READ MORE

French SSPX in Disarray as District Superior tries to defend Removal of seven “Rebellious” Priests, Commotion at St. Nicolas in Paris
[UPDATE 19-MAY-2017 18:32 UTC: English translation of Contre-Info article added.]
As we reported on May 11, seven deans of the Lefebvrian Society of St. Pius X’s French district were removed from their positions by the district superior, Fr. Christian Bouchacourt, after disseminating and reading from the pulpit a public letter explaining their rejection of the Vatican’s recent overtures on the celebration of SSPX marriages. The open letter, which was condemned by Fr. Bouchacourt the very same day, also made clear that the seven recalcitrant SSPX priests in question are not willing to go along with any reconciliation with Modernist Rome which the Superior General, Bp.… READ MORE

What would you expect from a religion that goes from THIS to THIS and calls it “renewal”? You’d expect… well, you’d expect exactly what we got. Read on.

The Vatican’s heretical “enforcer of orthodoxy”, “Cardinal” Gerhard Ludwig Muller, has given an interview to Portugal’s online journal Observador. It is available in full at the following link (in Portuguese only):
The interview deals mostly with issues of Benedict XVI vs. Francis, Amoris Laetitia, Mr. Muller’s work in the Congregation for the Destruction of the Faith, and concerns regarding the Vatican’s handling of sex abuse claims. … READ MORE

Today is the great 100th Anniversary of the first apparition of Our Lady of the Rosary at Fatima, Portugal — a perfect time to stop for a moment and recall to mind and ponder the great events that took place during the incredibly momentous year of 1917. What follows is a brief historical review, and then a list of resources at the end.
Our Lady of Fatima: A Brief Overview
The Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to three little shepherd children at a field called Cova da Iria at Fatima for a total of six different times, between May 13 and October 13, 1917.… READ MORE
Hideous Benediction Ceremony
Francis and the “Blessed Sacrament” at Fatima
It happened around 12:07 pm local time at Fatima, Portugal, on May 13, 2017. “Pope” Francis concluded his worship service on the occasion of the 100th anniversary of the first apparition of Our Lady of Fatima and the “canonization” of Francisco and Jacinta Marto, and proceeded to the scheduled benediction rite of the “Blessed Sacrament”. This is when his assistants put a “ventilator monstrance” on the altar that was probably supposed to remind people of the Miracle of the Sun which took place at Fatima on Oct. 13, 1917.
Stiff-kneed as ever, Francis stood there like a stubborn little school boy, refusing to kneel before what he claims to believe is the Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity of Jesus Christ.… READ MORE

Trouble in SSPX French District: Seven Deans rebel, get removed from their Positions
The 7 French deans and other priests who joined them
[Update: An English translation of the French deans’ letter has just been released by The Remnant. Also: The seven SSPX clerics in question were not mere priors, as we had previously reported, but deans, that is, heads of deaneries, which are larger geographical subdivisions containing groupings of priories. We have updated the post accordingly.]
On Sunday, May 7, seven deans (heads of deaneries) of the Society of St.… READ MORE
