“Embodied Souls”: Italian Novus Ordo Parish installs Horrid Artwork for Advent
The “Catholic” church of Beata Vergine Immacolata (“Blessed Virgin Immaculate”) in Longuelo, Italy, is an architectural monster, both on the outside (see front and side) and on the inside. Construction on the eyesore was completed in 1965, the last year of the Second Vatican Council, the assembly that made the Novus Ordo religion what it is.
The parish refers to itself on its web site as a “Christian community” and is part of the diocese of Bergamo. That’s the diocese into which Angelo Roncalli was born, the first Antipope of the Vatican II Sect (“St.… READ MORE

OnePeterFive: “We all have to face this fear above all fears: that Catholicism may be wrong”
The web site One Peter Five is a popular destination for recognize-and-resist traditionalists and conservative Novus Ordos who prefer the Traditional Latin Mass, are uneasy with Vatican II, and can’t take Francis’ theological junk anymore — and who, of course, want to find reassurance that they should not be sedevacantists.
The site brands itself as “rebuilding Catholic culture” and “restoring Catholic Tradition”, which makes for a great tagline across its masthead. Unfortunately, One Peter Five’s executive director and editor Steve Skojec apparently thinks he can do either while kicking traditional Catholic theology to the curb.… READ MORE

What will make the Antichrist so Deceptive?
Fr. Frederick W. Faber (1814-1863) warned his flock
Although the person of the Antichrist is perhaps not yet in our world, it is clear that the mystery of iniquity that will culminate in his arrival has been at work ever since the fall of Lucifer, and has never been more active than in our own day.
In his Second Epistle to the Thessalonians, St. Paul the Apostle warned: “For the mystery of iniquity already worketh; only that he who now holdeth, do hold, until he be taken out of the way” (2 Th 2:7).… READ MORE

Sickening Blasphemous Art in German Seminary Church
The outside is beautiful: St. Michael’s Church in Würzburg, Germany
The Novus Ordo diocese of Würzburg, Germany, has many gorgeous old church buildings in its possession. They are the remnants of the true Catholic religion that was once believed, taught, and practiced there.
One such church is St. Michael’s, which is part of the diocesan seminary. It is not used for regular public Sunday “Masses” anymore. After their invalid ordinations, new Novus Ordo priests go there to make their thanksgiving. The Novus Ordo worship service is perpetrated there every Monday night for the public, according to the diocesan Wiki page.… READ MORE

A Challenge to Recognize-and-Resist Apologists: Is it a Mortal Sin to adhere to Francis’ Teachings?
The altar of the Chair of St. Peter in the Vatican
Day in and day out we hear from the recognizing-and-resisting semi-traditionalists that this or that error of Vatican II or the post-conciliar magisterium is “not binding.” In a recent live interview on YouTube, semi-trad darling John Salza repeated it once again.
For the sake of argument, we will accept that claim precisely as stated: Certain papal teaching is not binding. That means, of course, that it is optional to embrace — take it or leave it.… READ MORE
Pacha Papa: Francis announces he may update Catechism to include ‘Ecological Sins’
Will the cover of the next edition of the Novus Ordo Catechism look like this?
After leaving the so-called Catechism of the Catholic Church untouched for over a whole year, it looks like it’s time for another major update. At least that’s an idea Francis is entertaining these days, and he’s not afraid to say so out loud.
As more and more real sins are becoming obsolete under the false Francis magisterium, new “sins” have to be made up to fill the void. The last update to the Novus Ordo Catechism made the state’s use of the death penalty into a mortal sin; the next addition could introduce the concept of “ecocide” — the killing of the environment.… READ MORE

Follow-Up to Novus Ordo Homo “Wedding”:
Diocese explains what happened
Two days ago, we published the post “Official ‘Catholic’ Same-Sex ‘Wedding’ in Austria”, using information from the semi-trad news and commentary site GloriaTV and the Graz-Seckau diocesan web site. What to any reasonable and objective observer looked like a “Catholic” pseudo-wedding ceremony for two lesbians, was almost that but not exactly. Considered in its entirety, what took place is, in a sense, even worse.
The conservative Novus Ordo Austrian news site kath.net contacted the diocese to ask them to explain what happened, and the response they received from the diocesan spokesman, Thomas Stanzer, was translated by Life Site.… READ MORE

“Against Recent Sacrileges”: 100 Novus Ordo Clerics & Scholars protest Francis’ Pachamama Idolatry
“An international group of 100 priests and lay scholars published a statement today to protest the pagan worship of Pachamama that took place last month during the Amazon Synod in Rome with Pope Francis’ active participation and apparent support”, Maike Hickson reports for Life Site in a report released today, Nov. 12.
The statement, dated Nov. 9, 2019, is posted at a web site put up specifically for this cause, where other clergy and scholars can request their own names to be appended to the document to express their support.… READ MORE

Official “Catholic” Same-Sex “Wedding” in Austria
[UPDATE 14-NOV-19: Follow-Up to Homo “Wedding”: Diocese explains what happened]
It was bound to happen before long: Two lesbian women have “married” each other in a “Catholic wedding” at St. Margarethen Church in Wolfsberg, Austria, which belongs to the diocese of Gurk in the state of Carinthia.
Gloria TV has published a news blurb on this with numerous photos documenting the abomination:
The spiritual criminal who officiated the ceremony was “Fr.” Michael Kopp, who is himself not exactly the epitome of masculinity at least visually.… READ MORE

Denying the Papacy to affirm Francis is Pope:
John Salza’s Conundrum
Affirming that Jorge Bergoglio (Francis) is a legitimate and valid Roman Pontiff comes at a hefty price: One has to deny the Catholic doctrine on the Papacy in return. Our Francis Papacy Test illustrates this very well, but in this post we wish to focus specifically on something John Salza said in a live interview on YouTube that aired on November 7.
There is a lot that ought to be said about Salza’s claims in the interview, but since he merely made assertions and did not prove anything in the video, we will take the liberty of addressing only one particular issue: the Catholic’s obligation to submit to all papal teaching, not merely that which is infallible or has “always been taught.”… READ MORE

Is Francis the Pope?
A Devastating Refutation of Eric Sammons
Is Francis the Pope?
That is the question Eric Sammons asks in a recent article on the One Peter Five web site. Of course even without reading it you already know what his conclusion is; for were it anything other than affirmative, One Peter Five wouldn’t have published it to begin with. To test the merits of the author’s arguments is the purpose of this post.
Sammons’ essay “Is Francis the Pope?”, released on Oct. 29, 2019, follows a common pattern among writers of the recognize-and-resist (aka semi-traditionalist) camp: It’s got plenty to say but is woefully short on documenting assertions made from traditional Catholic teaching.… READ MORE

Apostasy Rising: Vatican boldly promotes Evolution of Dogma in wake of Amazon Synod
After a turbulent Pan-Amazon Synod that included open idolatry in addition to the usual errors and heresies, the occupied Vatican clearly feels emboldened to take the next step in its relentless pursuit of apostasy and snuffing out the last remaining vestiges of Catholicism from souls haplessly caught up in its tentacles.
On Oct. 29, two days after the official close of the synod, Vatican Media published an article by Sergio Centofanti, entitled “Development of doctrine is a people that walks together”. As the idiotic title suggests, the content is anything but Catholic; in fact, it is openly Modernist.… READ MORE

Psychobabble on Steroids:
Reflecting on Death, Francis blabbers Inanities at Young
Although he loves to talk about “preaching the Gospel”, the Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio, currently occupying Vatican City under the pseudonym “Pope Francis”, refuses to do precisely that whenever the opportunity presents itself.
The latest case in point is his video message to participants of the 4th World Meeting of Young People sponsored by Scholas Occurrentes, a beloved pet project of his going back to his days in Buenos Aires.
On Oct. 31, the Vatican released the 6-minute clip, in which Francis supposedly “reflects on the meaning of death”.… READ MORE
