Novus Ordo Watch NEWS DIGEST
January 16, 2020
The Vatican soap opera continues: More fallout after Ratzinger/Sarah book kerfuffle: “Abp.” Georg Ganswein under fire after “Abp.” Carlo Viganò accuses him of “abusive and systematic control” of Benedict XVI. Marco Tosatti also weighs in. Yet no one will mention the much bigger problem with Ganswein: He is a public heretic.
From the guy who spreads fear about climate change: “Cardinal” Marx says that spreading the fear of hell undermines the Gospel. Riiight: “The Son of man shall send his angels, and they shall gather out of his kingdom all scandals, and them that work iniquity. And shall cast them into the furnace of fire: there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth” (Mt 13:41-42).
Nominated for Most Ironic Headline of the Year Award: Francis to theologians: ‘Don’t confuse the faithful’!
German Novus Ordo bishop welcomes idea of joint parish with Lutherans. Not to worry, that was approved in principle back in 1993 by “Saint” John Paul II’s Directory for the Application of Principles and Norms of Ecumenism: “Because of developments in society, the rapid growth of population and urbanization, and for financial motives, where there is a good ecumenical relationship and understanding between the communities, the shared ownership or use of church premises over an extended period of time may become a matter of practical interest” (n. 138; see also n. 140).
Straining a gnat while swallowing a camel: Vatican bans e-cigarettes. Smoke of Satan still allowed.
Because “male and female He created them” (Gen 1:27) is so pre-Amoris Laetitia: French Novus Ordo bishops’ council OKs removing gender IDs on baptism certificates. And who needs such outdated and non-inclusive binary terms as “father” and “mother”, anyway? Come on, it’s time to start adapting to “complex families”!
Pay Day: Successor asks disgraced former “bishop” to return $792,638. That’ll happen right after Bergoglio takes the Oath against Modernism.
Convicted sex abuser and cash cow “Uncle Ted” McCarrick has moved out of his Kansas friary. But where to? An anonymous source has contacted Church Militant claiming he witnessed McCarrick’s burial on Oct. 18, 2019, in Kansas.
Openly gay Novus Ordo priest claims Francis affirmed his homosexuality in private phone call. This will barely elicit a yawn from people anymore. Which says a lot.
“Cardinal” Raymond Burke criticizes calls for ‘new theology’ to match Francis’ teaching. And what, pray tell, was Vatican II if not new theology abandoning old categories?! Burke repeats the old error that Pope Liberius excommunicated St. Athanasius. But he didn’t: “…the Arians falsely accused Liberius, also Our predecessor, to the Emperor Constantine, because Liberius refused to condemn St. Athanasius, Bishop of Alexandria, and refused to support their heresy” (Pope Pius IX, Encyclical Quartus Supra, n. 16).
What a coincidence! ‘Pachamama’ film made pagan idols attractive to kids months before Amazon Synod.
Speaking of idols: Hindu Diwali festival celebrated on “Catholic” parish property.
Clueless about the Papacy, Dr. Peter Kwasniewski channels his inner Gallicanism: “In many ways, we are more threatened today by the spirit of Vatican I [than the spirit of Vatican II], which it will take a mighty exorcism to drive away.” Our book recommendation for Dr. K., approved by Pope Pius IX: The Papal Monarchy by Dom Prosper Gueranger (1869).
Not kosher: Francis offers halal meal on World Day of the Poor — because Muslims. Long gone are the days when “the poor have the gospel preached to them” (Mt 11:5).
This speaks for itself: “A Franciscan church in New York is trying to attract people by serving alcohol and hosting performances that have included an occult poet who has performed for the Satanic Temple.”
These people meant to do a good thing but their theology is off: Spanish Novus Ordos had Requiem ‘Mass’ for aborted children scheduled, archdiocese interferes. That’s theologically absurd: Aborted children are eternally barred from the Beatific Vision because their souls are in original sin; they cannot benefit from any prayers. (And if they were in Heaven, as most Novus Ordos believe, no prayers would be needed for them. So either way, offering Mass for them makes no sense.)
Birds of a feather flock together: Why did Bolivian Marxist Evo Morales find such favor at the Vatican?
He’s never happier than when he can hijack the sacred for his leftist-globalist political ends: Francis installs “Cross” made of life jackets for migrants who died in Mediterranean.
No Holy Name of Jesus, no Sign of the Cross: Bergoglio’s strange “blessings”, two days in a row.
If that’s what it takes to keep him from spouting heresy: Jesuit builds Vatican Minecraft server.
After finding that co-author Christopher Ferrara’s book Fatima Priest about “Fr.” Nicholas Gruner mentions an impostor Sr. Lucy, Peter Chojnowski of the Sister Lucy Truth project has some inconvenient questions for the Fatima Center: “Couldn’t the millions of dollars raised be used to launch an investigation into the fraud that was being perpetrated? Would not discovering the answer to this apparent crime make clear so much of what was happening with regard to the Catholic Church and the Fatima Message itself, even with regard to the Consecration of Russia? Did you spend 1/3 of a century begging the Consecration of Russia from those who had ‘disappeared’ Sister Lucy dos Santos, the remaining seer of Fatima and the Messenger of Our Lady? The one who had Our Lord, Our Lady, St. Joseph, the Holy Trinity appear to her and entrust to her the Message that was meant to save the modern world, having the greatest public miracle since the Resurrection, seen by 70,000 people, as the divine seal of approval? Why did you turn away in indifference to a fact you clearly recognized 20 years before Fr. Gruner’s death? Why not call out the perpetrators? Why was this not a central focus of the Fatima Apostolate?”
Francis addressing interreligious audience including Buddhists: “The great religious traditions of our world bear witness to a transcendent and widely shared spiritual patrimony…” A Freemason couldn’t have said it better!
What’s one more Vatican financial scandal? More evidence has surfaced of massive financial corruption at the Vatican.
Rolling down the aisle: Irish Novus Ordo presbyter shows off his gift from Santa!
“Number of priests refusing to be bishops on the rise.” Hey, and even those not refusing still don’t become bishops!
Theologically brain-dead, The Remnant proclaims: “World’s Catholics Resolve to Resist Francis in 2020.” Bergoglio must be shaking in his boots! Meanwhile, perhaps Michael Matt can explain how he demonstrates “total fidelity to Tradition” by rejecting the Papacy the way he does…
Vatican II’s “New Springtime” in full bloom: Wave of Female Monastery Closures Hits Italy.
Mr. Zuhlsdorf struggles to defend the validity of the Frankster: “Popes can be good. Popes can be bad. Popes can have short or long pontificates. Popes can be talented or doddering. Popes can be charming or jerks. Popes can be holy or sinful. Popes can be important or insignificant.” Yep. But notice what’s missing: He did not say that “Popes can be Catholics or non-Catholics.” Because they obviously can’t. And of course it’s not enough to simply believe a man is Pope. As Pius XI taught: “in this one Church of Christ no man can be or remain who does not accept, recognize and obey the authority and supremacy of Peter and his legitimate successors” (Encyclical Mortalium Animos, n. 11).
It fits perfectly: Francis under a statue of Buddha in Bangkok, Thailand…
GUILTY: “An Argentine court on Monday found two priests and a lay worker guilty of the sexual abuse of 10 former students of a Catholic school for the deaf, the first legal victory for a community of victims stretching from Italy to the Andes whose complaints about one of the clerics to church officials, including Pope Francis, went unheeded for years.”
False accusations and false reporting? The Media Report claims that “despite overwhelming evidence that a decades-old abuse claim against Fr. Dennis Riter of the Diocese of Buffalo is an outright fraud, the right-wing Church Militant web site continues to claim that Riter is an abuser.”
Bet you didn’t know: Ratzinger’s end game is saving the Church from Freemasonry. Wink, wink!
That’s why he keeps ‘canonizing’ one false Novus Ordo pope after another: Sainthood causes require thorough investigation, Bergoglio says.
It’s the Council, stupid: Lefebvrists publish Layman’s Guide to Vatican II.
Dr. Jeffrey Mirus tries, but fails, to impress: Is Sedevacantism “an attack on the Church’s Authority Principle”? The author’s main flaw is reducing all papal authority to infallibility, which is but rarely exercised. Next time, he may want to read up on Catholic doctrine first.
How dare they make disciples of all nations! Francis tells teens they’re not a ‘disciple of Jesus’ if they try to convert non-believers.
“We can pray together”: Munich’s Marx-ist on “accompanying” sodomites… Or how about a Scripture reading that includes Genesis 19:24?
Nothing to celebrate: Stunning silence from the Vatican as Paul VI’s Novus Ordo Missae turns 50.

See, conversion is mandatory in the Vatican II Church after all: Christians should ‘convert to ecumenism’, Novus Ordo cardinal Kurt Koch says.
Peter Chojnowski dissects the sophistry of Christopher Ferrara: “The Chief Lay Broken Record of the Gallican-wing of the Novus Ordo Church Successfully Recruits Dr. Taylor Marshall to High Church Modernism and Continues to Peddle the ‘Diabolical Disorientation’ Lie of the Fake Sister Lucy.” Louie Verrecchio, too, has some important comments on the Marshall-Ferrara interview.
For the abortion worshipper Barack Obama, Francis had no such analogy: “Pope Francis has compared U.S. President Donald Trump to the murderous King Herod who massacred innocent children in ancient Palestine”.
The elephant in the living room: If the Vatican wanted to destroy the Church, how would it behave differently? And if Francis were an Antipope…?
Accompanying people straight to hell: “Abp.” Vincent Paglia, head of the Pontifical Academy for Life (!), says Novus Ordo priests are permitted to be present at assisted suicides… Not to try to convert the sinner, of course, but only to hold his hand while he stubbornly persists on the road to certain damnation.
If the United Nations soon decide to introduce a Masonic World Day of Human Fraternity, it’s because the apostate Vatican urged them to…
Kasper the Unholy Ghost reveals: Francis feels called to ‘change’ Church, door will ‘open’ to women at altar. We remember how things went last time someone who claimed to be Pope “felt called” to “change” the Church by “opening” things….
Vienna’s satanic “Cardinal” Christoph Schonborn again defends sodomy under guise of charity: “The cardinal insisted that we would not be asked about our sexual orientation at the Last Judgment, but whether we had fed the hungry and clothed the naked.” Let’s see: “Know you not that the unjust shall not possess the kingdom of God? Do not err: neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor the effeminate, nor liers with mankind, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor railers, nor extortioners, shall possess the kingdom of God” (1 Cor 6:9-10).
A huge abortion push comes to Argentina. Was it helped by Francis meddling in the election?
After declaring that they “withdraw [their] obedience from Pope Francis and sever communion with the Holy See”, while still holding him to be the true Pope, Scottish hermits of Westray shocked at receiving declaration of excommunication… What’s going on here?! Our new TRADCAST EXPRESS 099 provides some insightful commentary. But then: Westray Hermits of Scotland now dump Francis: “…with the appearance of Amoris Laetitia, and his other heresies, Pope Francis became a heretic, ceased being a Catholic, and was therefore no longer Pope.”
“Memory is the horizon of hope” – and other profound goodies are found in Francis’ endless Message for the World Day of Peace 2019.
He’s a few decades too late: Cologne’s homo-friendly “Cardinal” Woelki suddenly discovers that adapting to the spirit of the age would make the Catholic Church useless. And he’d know something about that!
Because the environment: Basilica of St. John Lateran in Rome filled with trees for Laudato Si’ conference.
Francis appoints new “Archbishop” of Santiago, Chile. Perhaps because the man comes with “pedo logo miter” credentials?

It’s a post-Amoris Laetitia world: Novus Ordo bishop apologizes to public bigamists and adulterers for treating them like bigamists and adulterers.
Not everyone is fooled by Bergoglio’s liberation theology: “Brazil’s Catholic royalty is condemning the Amazon Synod’s final document as an ‘enormous conspiracy’ of emergent pantheism against Catholic tradition, Western civilization and the conservative government of President Jair Bolsonaro.”
Off to judgment: Modernist theologian Fr. Johann Baptist Metz dies at 91.
Roberto DeMattei notes that Francis has a “mestizo” theology “because he mixes truth and errors, forming a muddled amalgamation in which nothing is clear, determined and distinct.”

Francis’ chief critic, “Abp.” Carlo Maria Vigano, is starting to question Vatican II, notes “terrible discontinuity” with pre-conciliar Magisterium.
Even atheists can see it: Bergoglio “is openly going against Tradition, Doctrine and is introducing innovations, disciplines and inexplicable acts. This pontificate is a scandal in the biblical sense of the word: it leads souls astray and make the faithful stumble, it does not bear good fruits, nay it makes them diminish.”
Francis knows he can do the most lasting damage to souls by appointing bad “bishops.” And so he does.
Real effort at transparency or window dressing? Francis abolishes ‘Pontifical Secret’ in abuse cases; but the change to the ‘pontifical secret’ does less than it appears to do.
The Bransfield Report: Washington Post publishes secret Vatican document as parishioners demand answers.
Heart-breaking: Lawsuit charges famous Jesuit with abusing boy 1,000 times. Speaking of which: “Vatican tribunal now overwhelmed by clergy abuse cases.”
Sometimes victims sue, even the “Holy See” itself. Others take matters into their own hands: “The murder of an elderly priest last month has slowly brought to light a sordid story of the priest’s sexual abuse of the suspected killer and his father.”
Speaking of tone-deafness: Sculpture of what appears to be a naked boy installed in front of cathedral. Because clothing the naked!
Mr. Longenecker deplores “how little the world’s most visible and vocal Christian leader ever speaks about Jesus Christ [or] … anything specifically Catholic.” He’s probably just limiting himself to the essentials, ya know…

In wake of current Francis mess, conservative Novus Ordo Jeffrey Mirus has some do’s and dont’s for his co-religionists.

Vatican II theology in action: Muslim politician praises Allah during Novus Ordo church ceremony.
The so-called Pontifical Biblical Commission has published a new study of the human person because “we wanted to show what Scripture really says.” Because for nearly two millennia the Church had no clue what’s in the Bible about man! And what do you know? Some “new insights” discovered about the sin of Sodom and all that!
