Vatican II Sect celebrates Protestant Reformation
Vatican releases Postage Stamp honoring Martin Luther
Today is Reformation Day. In Germany, that’s a quasi-holiday. What makes it worse this year is that it’s the 500th anniversary. That’s right: It was on Oct. 31, 1517 that a priest named Martin Luther nailed 95 theses to the door of All Saints’ Church in Wittenberg, Germany. The errors of Luther were solemnly condemned by Pope Leo X in the bull Exsurge Domine in 1520, and Luther’s excommunication followed a few months later.
In 1545, the Church convened the all-important Council of Trent, which ushered in the Catholic Counter-Reformation, and also led to the publication of the Roman Catechism, also known as the Catechism of the Council of Trent.… READ MORE

Prominent Novus Ordo Priest on Francis:
“We Can’t Wait for Him to Die”
The British journalist Andrew Brown published a lengthy article written for The Guardian this past Friday: “The War Against Pope Francis” is the title, and it’s a mostly descriptive piece trying to give an overview of what the mess over “Pope” Francis and especially Amoris Laetitia within the Vatican II Sect is all about. Although it is evident that the writer is by no means a Catholic and his write-up reflects the usual liberal attitude against the Catholic Church, it is at least not overly hostile.… READ MORE

“Cardinal” Brandmuller warns of Schism:
“May God prevent it”
[UPDATE 29-OCT-2017: Full Interview Text now available in English here]
The Oct. 28, 2017 edition of the German daily Frankfurter Allgemeine contains a full-page interview with “Cardinal” Walter Brandmuller, one of the only two surviving Novus Ordo cardinals who petitioned Francis to answer five specific questions or doubts (“dubia“) regarding the teaching of his exhortation Amoris Laetitia. Fr. Brandmuller’s responses throughout the interview are refreshingly clear and firm, especially for Novus Ordo standards.
To review, the five now world-famous Dubia are the following:

First Francis, now Benedict XVI:
New Photos show Joseph Ratzinger with Black Eye
The diocese of Passau, Germany, just published two new images of the so-called “Pope Emeritus”, Fr. Joseph Ratzinger, otherwise known by his stage name “Benedict XVI.” Here is one of them:
The two visitors seen in this photo are “Bishop” Stefan Oster of the diocese of Passau, Germany, in which lies Benedict’s birthplace, and Mr. Peter Seewald, a German journalist who has produced numerous interview books with Ratzinger. Oster and Seewald visited Benedict to give him a copy of a new book they collaborated on, entitled Benedikt XVI.… READ MORE

[UPDATE 27-OCT-2017: Complete English transcript now available]
“Pope” Francis is concerned about many things, it’s just that most of them have nothing to do with the job description of Pope (cf. Lk 10:42-43). Were he a true and valid Catholic Pope, his first duty would be to guard the purity of the Faith, to teach true doctrine, to sanctify souls, and to govern the Mystical Body of Christ, ensuring its unity, prosperity, and growth. A great example of how to do this well was given by Pope Saint Pius X (r.… READ MORE

Chronicling the Chaos following the Correctio Filialis
Remember the “Synod on the Family” in 2014? That’s when all the talk about “communion for the divorced-and-remarried” started. At the time, there was no end to hearing about the “October Synod”. When the first synod document was released, the so-called Relatio Post Disceptationem (“Report after Discussions”), all hell broke loose, although the usual Novus Ordo apologists were still trying to save the baby. Mr. John Zuhlsdorf (“Fr. Z”), for example, told his readers to beware of media distortions, warning of a “Synod of the Media”.… READ MORE

Francis rushes to clarify Shift in Authority for Liturgical Translations
What do you know! It’s amazing how quickly Francis can move to clarify something he has written when he really wants to.
On Sep. 9, 2017, the Vatican’s Chief Apostate released a motu proprio entitled Magnum Principium, in which he decreed a modification to the 1983 Code of Canon Law. The change concerns the final authority in matters of translation of liturgical texts, which Francis has now shifted away from the “Holy See” to national or regional episcopal conferences. Whereas formerly it was necessary for the Vatican to approve liturgical translations, the role of the “Holy See” is now one merely of confirming what episcopal conferences approve. … READ MORE
Charitable, informative, challenging
Podcast Discussion: Novus Ordo vs. Sedevacantist
The Catholic vs. podcast is a Novus Ordo podcast produced and hosted by David Mary Andrew Ross. The host, who is a convert to the Vatican II Church from atheism (2009), interviews guests who have a religious position different from his own. The format is informal and conversational, and the idea is to generate light rather than heat.
On Sep. 30, 2017, in an episode entitled Catholic vs. Catholic, the host interviewed sedevacantist Stephen Heiner. The show is available for free and can be listened to here:
In roughly 58 minutes, Ross and Heiner challenge each other on a number of different issues, including the teachings of Vatican II, wolves in sheep’s clothing, the disaster of Amoris Laetitia, and the visibility of the Church.… READ MORE
First Invalid Masses in United States
50 Years since “Black Sunday”
The year of our Lord 2017 has proven to be a year of significant anniversaries, both positive and negative. Another such is today: Sunday, October 22, 1967, was the first time that the Vatican II Sect in the United States mandated the use of a New Canon (“Eucharistic Prayer”) at Mass — a “canon” which included modified words of consecration and was recited entirely in the vernacular.
On Mar. 12, 1968, Fr. Lawrence S. Brey (1927-2006), a priest in the archdiocese of Milwaukee, summed up the problem with Black Sunday as follows:

Was October 22, 1967 the most ominous and frightening day in the two-thousand-year history of the Catholic Church, and certainly in the history of the Church in the United States of America?

No Joke: Francis warns of “Islamization”!
No, this isn’t an April Fool’s joke, and you couldn’t use it as one because no one would believe you: The Austrian news magazine Profil reports on its web site that at a recent private audience with Austrian “Catholics”, “Pope” Francis has expressed his concern about an “Islamization” of the nation.
Here is a translation of the brief report:

“Cardinal” Lehmann Hospitalized after Stroke
Yesterday, Oct. 19, the German diocese of Mainz announced that its long-time former “bishop”, “Cardinal” Karl Lehmann, suffered a stroke in late September and has been in the hospital since. He is reportedly in stable condition and now focusing on rehab, according to a news report found at katholisch.de, the official web site of the German branch of the Vatican II Sect.
Ordained a priest in 1963 (see a photo of his first Mass here), Lehmann was a student of the notorious Modernist Karl Rahner, one of the chief movers and shakers at the Second Vatican Council.… READ MORE

The Last Judgment According to Francis
Getting Michelangelo’s Last Judgment in line with Francis’ False Gospel…
If you’ve been greatly disturbed by the perpetual heresy spout called “Pope Francis” lately but for some reason or another were still holding out hope that he really is a Catholic and this is all just a big misunderstanding, the following story will provide a sobering reality check for you.
Today, the famous Vaticanist Sandro Magister released a blog post entitled “World’s End Update. The ‘Last Things’ According to Francis”, in which he quoted Francis’ favorite interviewer, the atheist Eugenio Scalfari, thus:

Ecclesial Civil War:
Pro Pope Francis Web Site counters Filial Correction Movement
In the Novus Ordo Sect, false principles are once again coming home to roost. If a number of conservatives in the Vatican II Church can correct the “Pope”, then there is no reason why a number of liberals can’t support him, and this is exactly what has now happened.
On Sep. 23, 2017, the now-famous “Filial Correction” went online, a well-documented study refuting various heresies and errors propagated by “Pope” Francis. It was originally signed by 62 clerics and lay individuals, most of them not very well known.… READ MORE

Mullarkey’s Malarkey: Novus Ordo Blogger affirms “First Among Equals” Heresy
A lot of people these days rush to blog about Catholic theology despite not having much of a clue. (The anonymous Mundabor is a stellar example in this regard.) Instead of bothering to look up what the actual Catholic teaching is on this or that topic, people like to simply go by what seems right to them — which saves them hours of research but exposes their hapless readers to being misled on matters pertaining to their eternal salvation.
A recent example of this can be seen in the case of Maureen Mullarkey, formerly a writer for the Novus Ordo publication First Things.… READ MORE

False Lights at Fatima:
Basilica Façade profaned with Light Show
The pre-announced profanation of the facade of the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary at Fatima, Portugal, took place as scheduled. On Oct. 12, 13, and 14, an elaborate multimedia light show called Fátima — Tempo de Luz (“Fatima — Time of Light”) was projected onto the facade of the traditional church building consecrated to the worship of God in October of 1953.
Details concerning this light show were included in our Oct. 9 post announcing the event:
Here is the official video made of the 13-minute spectacle as it was performed on Oct.… READ MORE
