Recognize-and-OBEY is the Traditional Catholic Teaching
The sedevacantist blogger Steven Speray has recently released an important blog post we are happy to republish on this web site, with his permission. It concerns the foundational belief of those who try to be traditional Catholics while believing the “Popes” after Pius XII to be valid and true Vicars of Christ — the so-called “recognize-and-resist” position (R&R).
Pope Pius XI Squashes the Recognize-and-Resist Position
by Steve Speray (Aug. 27, 2019)
Can the faithful recognize and resist the pope? I dealt with this question in a 2015 article. However, I recently stumbled upon some teachings from Pope Pius XI that castigate the recognize-and-resist theology.… READ MORE
In case you missed our initial announcement on August 21: We have published another full-length episode of our popular TRADCAST podcast program. As always, it is loaded with real traditional Catholicism, hard-hitting refutations of various errors, and razor-sharp analysis. Our content is typically challenging but is always delivered with a relieving touch of humor.
TRADCAST 025 consists of two separate segments. First we evaluate Dan Marcum’s effort to paint Francis as an “anti-liberal”, and in the process we examine the the Modernist strategy of using ambiguity and contradiction in order to spread heresy more effectively and with impunity.… READ MORE
Swiss “Catholic” Media Center promotes “Sin Disposal Container”
On Friday, August 23, the official YouTube channel of the Novus Ordo Catholic Media Center in Switzerland released a video introducing people to the new “sin disposal container” in Zurich, an interactive “art” project that aims to make people think and smile. Chances are it will do neither — the reaction of a healthy human being will be a good eye-roll accompanied by a sigh, at best.
The odd box is a former recycling container. Outside it there is an opening through which materials can be placed into it.… READ MORE
The world’s chief Jesuit has struck again. No, not Bergoglio. The other one.
We’re talking about the 70-year-old Venezuelan “Fr.” Arturo Sosa Abascal, the current Superior General of the so-called Society of Jesus, which has in truth now become the Society of Judas. For the second time in recent memory, he has explicitly repudiated the reality of the devil by denying that Satan is a real person (a fallen angel). In the Roman Catholic Church, that is heresy and carries with it an automatic excommunication (see Canon 2314).… READ MORE
Segment 1: Francis the Anti-Liberal? – ambiguity and contradiction as part of the Modernist strategy; bursting the diocesan traditional Latin Mass bubble; the revolution of Vatican II vs. the traditional Catholic teaching on the Church; is it a “dogmatic fact” that Francis is Pope? – response to Robert Siscoe
Segment 2: Brief announcement regarding Taylor Marshall’s book Infiltration: The Plot to Destroy the Church from Within; how you can support this podcast; Peter Chojnowski’s “Sister Lucy Truth” project: was Sr. Lucy of Fatima replaced with an imposter around 1960?; the trouble with diabolical disorientation; a preview of the Vatican’s upcoming Amazon Synod; the contradictory theology of One Peter Five; Sedevacantism – a dead end?
Brazilian Novus Ordo Priest and Canon Lawyer denounces Francis as Antipope and False Prophet, alleges Schism
The list of Novus Ordo adherents who are publicly denouncing Francis as a false pope (or worse) is growing. The latest to join in the chorus is “Fr.” Paulo Renato Dornelles from Brazil.
Reportedly a canon and civil lawyer who graduated from the Pontifical Lateran University summa cum laude and worked as an ecclesiastical judge and university professor in the archdiocese of Porto Alegre, Dornelles released a video on May 21, 2019, charging Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) with heresy and schism and also accusing him of being an antipope (i.e.… READ MORE
Benedict XVI and the “Prophetic Mission of Fatima”:
The Rest of the Story
Every so often, someone with a soft spot for the old Modernist Joseph Ratzinger (now “Pope Emeritus” Benedict XVI) digs up a quote from a homily he gave in 2010 (see video here) in which he spoke somewhat cryptically about the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. His exact words were:
We would be mistaken to think that Fatima’s prophetic mission is complete. Here there takes on new life the plan of God which asks humanity from the beginning: “Where is your brother Abel […] Your brother’s blood is crying out to me from the ground!”
Rejecting nothing that is true and holy about idolatry…
Vatican II Sect in Switzerland promotes Hinduism
The quicker picker-upper: The goddess “Durga” is one of Hinduism’s countless idols
The official web site and media portal of the “Catholic Church” in Switzerland has released a video promoting the idolatrous worship of Hinduism.
On July 23, 2019, the Swiss so-called “Catholic Media Center” (Katholisches Medienzentrum) published a 3-minute video clip showing a puja, which is the essential Hindu worship ritual. The abomination can be witnessed here:
The puja (or pooja) took place at the Hindu temple in the Swiss capital of Bern inside the so-called “House of Religions” (Haus der Religionen) and is carried out every Friday night.… READ MORE
If McDonald’s were looking for a new toy to include in their Happy Meals, they would need to look no further than the atrocity currently on display in the 16th-century Basilica of San Giorgio Maggiore in Venice.
The piece is entitled “Opulent Ascension” and was perpetrated by 74-year-old Irish-American “artist” Sean Scully. It is part of Scully’s ongoing HUMAN exhibition (May 8 – Oct. 13, 2019) and placed directly in the nave of the church, blocking the view to the sanctuary.
Adultery as a Venial Sin? Amoris Laetitia and Mitigating Circumstances
Response to Dr. Pedro Gabriel
On April 8, 2016, the Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope” Francis) released the so-called “apostolic exhortation” Amoris Laetitia. Proposing a theological version of situation ethics, the pseudo-papal document has thrown the conservative adherents of the Vatican II Sect into a complete tizzy, eliciting a cacophony of reactions as it permits the so-called “divorced-and-remarried” to receive the Novus Ordo sacraments after a process of “discernment”, on a case-by-case basis.
One of the most loyal supporters of Francis and his false magisterium is the web site Where Peter is. … READ MORE
The Catholic Conference (Katholikentag; literally “Catholics’ Day”) is a national event in Germany that was first held on October 3, 1848, and since then has been repeated every 2-4 years.
What started out as a truly Roman Catholic gathering organized by laymen in the middle of the nineteenth century has become a grotesque celebration of Naturalism, Modernism, Freemasonic ideas, and everything else that is wrong with the Vatican II religion. The Katholikentag is definitely left of center even for Novus Ordo standards, and of course it comes with ridiculous liturgy to boot.… READ MORE
A recent argument about sacramental validity between semi-trad bloggers Steve Skojec and Louie Verrecchio illustrates quite beautifully what the fundamental problem is in the camp of non-sedevacantist traditionalists.
