A Bergoglian Good Friday…
The Passion of Man:
Francis’ Anthropocentric Stations of the Cross
On Good Friday, Catholics commemorate the Passion and Death of Jesus Christ, the only Way by which salvation can be obtained (see Jn 3:16-18; Jn 14:6; Acts 4:12).
One of the most salutary and beautiful acts of devotion in which to engage on Good Friday is the richly-indulgenced Stations of the Cross (also called the Way of the Cross, Via Crucis, or Via Dolorosa), which consists of prayers and meditations on each of the fourteen stations of Christ’s holy Passion, beginning with the unjust sentence of death rendered by Pontius Pilate and concluding with the placing of the Body of Jesus in the sepulcher.… READ MORE
Beloved sedevacantist priest
Father Joseph Collins, R.I.P.
(October 6, 1952 – April 27, 2019)
It is with great sadness and a heavy heart that we announce the death of Fr. Joseph Francis Collins. Fr. Collins died today, April 27, at 11:54 am in Albany, New York, after a battle with cancer. For many years, he was the pastor at St. Michael Chapel & Shrine in Glenmont, New York.
Originally ordained by Abp. Marcel Lefebvre, Fr. Collins had been among the sedevacantist “Nine” who were expelled from the Society of St. Pius X in April of 1983, after they had sent a letter to Abp.… READ MORE

Easter in the Fun Church…
Resurrection Sunday in the Vatican II Sect:
Novus Ordo Priest becomes Easter Egg
There isn’t much that needs to be said about this — the above picture and the video from which it was taken, speak for themselves.
On Easter Sunday, this past April 21, “Fr.” Nando Capone of San Bernardino Realino parish in Lecce, Italy, donned an Easter Egg hat during the sermon and preached accordingly: “We are Easter. Every one of you ought to be an Easter egg, a sign of new life, a surprise. Move beyond any malice; that’s resurrection” (our translation; as reported by Giuseppe Nardi).… READ MORE

On April 12, Michael Voris of Church Militant stunned his fan base as he suddenly began promoting the person and theology of the late Fr. Leonard Feeney, S.J. (1897-1978) and the St. Benedict Center he helped shape (at least the one in New Hampshire — there is another one in Massachusetts). Two more similar articles and Vortex episodes followed, as well as a full interview with the prior of the NH St.… READ MORE
And four-sided triangles, too?
Francis: “I like the Lutherans who follow the True Faith of Jesus Christ”
Jorge Bergoglio says the darndest things, most of them incompatible with Catholicism.
After the Jesuit pretend-pope gave an address to a mixed audience consisting mostly of young Novus Ordos and Lutherans on Oct. 13, 2016 in the Vatican, he engaged in a question-and-answer session with the youngsters. It was on that occasion that he pronounced one of his many condemnations of “proselytism”, telling a girl who had asked whether she should try to convert her non-religious friends: “It is not licit to convince them of your faith; proselytism is the strongest poison against the ecumenical path” (source). … READ MORE
Stephen K. Amos gets private audience with Bergoglio…
Francis tells Homosexual Atheist: “It does not matter … how you live your life, you do not lose your dignity”!
The 51-year-old British TV personality Stephen K. Amos is an atheist. He is also a stand-up comedian and a public sodomite. According to his Wikipedia entry, he once hosted a televised documentary on male genitalia.
In September of last year, Amos participated in a 15-day trekking challenge to Rome together with seven other celebrities, as part of the program Pilgrimage: The Road To Rome on BBC Two. The episode was just broadcast yesterday, Good Friday, Apr.… READ MORE

Benedict XVI’s Letter on Sex Abuse Crisis:
Highlights & Reaction Roundup
On April 10, 2019, the “Pope Emeritus” Benedict XVI, with the prior permission of “Pope” Francis, published a 6000-word letter on the sexual abuse crisis in the German Klerusblatt (a regional periodical for clergy), which was released at the same time on the internet in various languages. The German original and the English translation of the missive are available here:

The Theological Errors of “Bishop” Schneider
A Refutation of Athanasius Schneider on the Heretical Pope Question
On March 20 of this year, the Kazakh Novus Ordo auxiliary bishop Athanasius Schneider, immensely popular among semi-traditionalists, published a lengthy article entitled, “On the Question of a Heretical Pope” on the Rorate Caeli web site.
In face of the overwhelming evidence that Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) is not a Catholic but a public heretic, Schneider’s objective was to find a way to reconcile Bergoglio’s obvious stubborn adherence to heresy with his claim to the Papacy, the legitimacy of which Schneider refuses to question.… READ MORE

Bergoglio can’t kneel? My foot!
Down on his Knees:
Francis kisses Feet of four South Sudanese Politicians
Francis’ knees never cease to amaze. Whenever kneeling is required or suggested for the worship of God, the 82-year-old Jesuit from Buenos Aires usually has terrible problems bending his knees (cf. Rom 14:11; Phil 2:10). But somehow it’s only then.
Genuflecting after the “consecration” of the Novus Ordo worship service? Too difficult. Kneeling in adoration before what he claims to believe is Christ in the Blessed Sacrament? Can’t do it — get him a chair. Kneeling on a comfortable kneeler before the Monstrance during the procession for the Feast of Corpus Christi?… READ MORE

“Truly, if one of the devils in C. S. Lewis’s The Screwtape Letters had been entrusted with the ruin of the liturgy, he could not have done it better.” –Dietrich von Hildebrand
“Every sectarian who wishes to introduce a new doctrine finds himself, unfailingly, face to face with the Liturgy, which is Tradition at its strongest and best, and he cannot rest until he has silenced this voice, until he has torn up these pages which recall the faith of past centuries.”… READ MORE

Naturalism at Full Blast:
Francis on the Existence of All Religions
None are so blind as those who refuse to see…
At today’s General Audience, the Jesuit apostate Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) reflected on the trip he took this past weekend to Rabat, Morocco, where he proclaimed that “being a Christian is not about adhering to a doctrine” and other heretical idiocies. Surprisingly, he did not comment on April 3 being the 50th anniversary of the Novus Ordo Missae (“New Order of the Mass”) of “Pope” Paul VI, the liturgical travesty that passes for the “Roman Catholic Mass” at your local Novus Ordo parish.… READ MORE
