Francis’ Brilliant Plan for World Peace: Ban All Weapons!
The Modernist Jesuit Jorge Bergoglio (stage name: “Pope Francis”) has once again graced the world with his infinite wisdom. Today, Apr. 29, 2018, he sent out a tweet that says: “Do we really want peace? Then let’s ban all weapons so we don’t have to live in fear of war.”
No, this is not a joke. This is not fake news. This is not satire, nor does it come from a parody account. This is from the real “Pope” Francis. The link to the actual tweet can be found here, and we have taken a screenshot as evidence just in case the tweet gets deleted:
With idiotic content this like being the real news coming from Vatican City, there is nothing left to do for the satirists and parodists at Eye of the Tiber.… READ MORE
“If Christ be not risen again, your faith is vain” (1 Cor 15:17)
Did Christ truly Rise from the Dead? How “Pope” Francis cleverly denies the Historicity of the Resurrection
The reason why Modernists have been so successful in their destruction of the Faith in souls is that their errors are typically camouflaged. The outrageous ideas they proclaim they often contradict or relativize in other places; or they use sufficient ambiguity in their words so that although most people will take heresy from their less-than-clear words (especially if the words are accompanied by heretical actions), Francis apologists will detect enough “plausible deniability” in them should the need arise to defend their master from the accusation of poisoning souls.… READ MORE

Heaven, Hell, and Atheism: A Reply to Jack Bentz, S.J.
We all know that the state of “Catholic theology” in the Novus Ordo Sect is nothing short of appalling, and we hardly need any more evidence for it. However, it is always useful to see an illustration of just how bad it really is. An example of that was unwittingly given on Apr. 19 by a Jesuit Novus Ordo priest named Jack Bentz, who published an article entitled “Was Pope Francis right to tell a child his atheist dad may be in heaven?” in the apostate Modernist rag America.… READ MORE
Ed Pentin interviews Henry Sire
A Video Interview with the Author of The Dictator Pope
Today, April 23, is the day of the official release of the second and expanded edition of The Dictator Pope, a very frank and therefore highly unflattering look at the person of Jorge Bergoglio, especially in his stage act as “Pope Francis”. The author, historian Henry J. A. Sire, is not a sedevacantist and so cannot be accused of bias in our favor.
Subtitled The Inside Story of the Francis Papacy, Sire’s portrait of the Jesuit apostate has already received praise and confirmation from sources close to Francis:

What I am most pleased at is that the book was immediately noticed in high ecclesiastical circles.

“Saint” John Paul II receives an Apostate-Jewish “Blessing”!
Not everyone rejoices and is glad: EWTN panel laments “very, very troubling” parts of exhortation Gaudete et Exsultate.
“Cardinal” Raymond Burke discussess the possibility of being “excommunicated” by Francis. We encourage him to review the teaching of Pope Clement XI and the true history of the case of Pope Liberius and St. Athanasius.
In Trinidad and Tobago, sodomy is illegal. Guess who wants that to change.

Talk about Pelagianism: Francis tells Boy his Atheist Father is in Heaven because he was “good”
No one who has not experienced it himself can possibly understand the incredible grief a little child who has lost his father has to endure. Such grief must be infinitely worse when the father in question was an atheist, since anyone who dies an atheist will certainly be damned:

He that believeth and is baptized, shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be condemned. (Mk 16:16)
But without faith it is impossible to please God. For he that cometh to God, must believe that he is, and is a rewarder to them that seek him.

Conservative Church Crisis Conference in Rome issues Lackluster Declaration
Saturday, April 7, 2018, saw yet another high-profile “Catholic” conference in Rome. It was, in essence, a crisis self-help conference by various conservative Novus Ordo personalities who are wondering what they can or should do in the current situation without having to deny that Francis is a true Pope. Similar events had taken place before, such as the conference in Rome on Christian marriage sponsored by the Lepanto Foundation in Dec. 2016.
Officially, the conference had the intriguing and yet smooth-sounding title, “Catholic Church, where are you going?” … READ MORE

St. Robert Bellarmine’s Teaching on Resisting a Pope
For decades the proponents of the recognize-and-resist position have been using a quotation from St. Robert Bellarmine, the celebrated Doctor of the Church canonized by Pope Pius XI, in defense of their position and in apparent contradiction to Sedevacantism. The quote in question is the following (the precise wording varies a bit depending on which translation is used):

Just as it is licit to resist a Pontiff who attacks the body, so also is it licit to resist him who attacks souls or destroys the civil order or above all, tries to destroy the Church.

Schism Ahead: Retired Novus Ordo Bishop René Gracida calls for New Conclave
On his blog Abyssus Abyssum Incovat (“Deep calls on deep”; cf. Ps 41:8), the 94-year-old retired “bishop” of Corpus Christi, Texas, Fr. René Henry Gracida, has published a post calling for all remaining “legitimate cardinals” to get together and elect a Pope. This news story is huge.
Although he bases his reasoning mostly on the (invalid) legislation regarding papal elections promulgated by “Pope” John Paul II in 1996 (the constitution Universi Dominici Gregis) and arrives at the invalidity of the papal election of Jorge Bergoglio on such grounds, the really significant point is that for the first time ever, a high-ranking member of the Novus Ordo hierarchy has announced his conviction that the current occupant of the papal throne is not in fact the true Roman Pontiff, and that a conclave must be called to elect one:

So, what happens if a group of Cardinals who undoubtedly did not participate in any acts of disobedience against Universi Dominici Gregis were to meet, confer and declare that, pursuant to Universi Dominici Gregis, Monsignor Bergoglio is most certainly not a valid Roman Pontiff.

Gaudete et Exsultate:
The Most Important Passages
In its English translation, the new infernal exhortation Gaudete et Exsultate counts just over 22,000 words. We have read the text in its entirety so you don’t have to. You’re welcome.
Whether “Pope” Francis has read the text yet or not, we are not sure — Vaticanist Sandro Magister suspects that the document was written mainly by Bergoglio’s bosom buddy “Fr.” Antonio Spadaro, the man of “ecumenism of hate” fame.
In any case, we have compiled what we believe to be the most important quotes from Gaudete et Exsultate in the bulleted list below, as a companion to our Gaudete info page here. … READ MORE
“Apostolic Exhortation” Gaudete et Exsultate
on the Call to Holiness in Today’s World
March 19, 2018
The Vatican’s endless word factory has just released another monster of a document: Jorge Bergoglio (a.k.a. “Pope Francis”) has released his third-so called Apostolic Exhortation, and just like the other two, it has a cognate of “joy” in its title: Gaudete and Exsultate (“Rejoice and Be Glad”), taken from the words of Christ in the Beatitudes (Mt 5:12) follows Amoris Laetitia (“The Joy of Love”) and Evangelii Gaudium (“The Joy of the Gospel”). We can assume that no document on the threat of damnation for unrepentant sinners, perhaps entitled Discedite a Me Maledicti (“Depart from me, you cursed”; Mt 25:41), will be forthcoming any time soon, at least not before the U.S.… READ MORE

The “St. Peter Denied Christ Three Times” Objection:
St. Robert Bellarmine Refutes another Recognize-and-Resist Error
Time and again we hear the objection, typically made by those who try to justify their pathological refusal to countenance Sedevacantism, that St. Peter denied Christ three times (see Mt 26:69-75) and didn’t thereby cease to be Pope. Ergo, so we are asked to believe, it is absurd to say that Francis is not the Pope just because he is not a Catholic and continually disseminates heresy.
To demonstrate that this objection is untenable, three main points must be kept in mind:

Did St. John the Baptist doubt that Jesus Christ was the Messiah? A Refutation of Mark Shea
One of Francis’ most industrious disciples is the infamous Novus Ordo apologist Mark P. Shea. A long-time contributor to EWTN and the National Catholic Register, Shea was fired in 2016 after numerous controversies about “his writings and engagement on other forums” (source). He quickly found a new home, however, at The Catholic Weekly, a Novus Ordo newspaper based in Sydney, Australia, and this is where he now does his spiritual damage.
One of the recurring themes in Francis’ pseudo-pontificate is the idea that while he was in prison for having told King Herod that it was not lawful for him to have his brother’s wife (see Mk 6:17-18), St.… READ MORE

Francis, Holy Thursday, and the Miracle of the Knees
On Mar. 9 of this year, after stiff-kneed Francis managed to kneel rather easily for his annual public confession stunt, we made the following prediction: “The next time Francis will be able to kneel will be on Mar. 29. That’s when he will perform the washing of politically-correct feet.”
And so it happened. Mar. 29 was Holy Thursday, and, while the rest of the world was trying to digest the developing “Hellgate” scandal, its protagonist was busy washing the feet of inmates at Rome’s Regina Caeli prison.… READ MORE
