Did the Council of Florence Teach Error? A Response to Athanasius Schneider’s Attempt to Save Vatican II
No matter how one looks at it, the only way one can ever justify or excuse the abominable Second Vatican Council (1962-65) is by trashing the Catholic Church prior to the council. Mr. Athanasius Schneider, auxiliary “bishop” (why the quotes?) of the diocese of Maria Santissima in Astana, Kazakhstan, has just shown that that goes not only for open Modernists but also for some “traditionalists.”
In a newly-released text, the Kazakh prelate once again repeats his claim that there is historical precedent for the idea that a Pope can correct the errors of a prior ecumenical council.… READ MORE
Do You Believe in the Papacy?
Take this brief Test and Find Out!
Frequent visitors to this web site know that the topic of the Catholic Papacy is continually broached here. The reason for that is that a correct understanding of the Papacy is absolutely crucial, especially in our times, and is ironically rejected — wittingly or not — by a large majority of those who call themselves traditional Catholics, specifically by those who accept Francis and his five inglorious predecessors as true Popes but at the same time attempt to remain faithful to the religion of Pope Pius XII and the Popes before him.… READ MORE
Br. Alexis Bugnolo’s Narrative collapses as Benedict XVI returns to Vatican City
Another post on Benedict XVI’s trip to Germany? Yes, one more. The reason for giving this so much attention is the fact that more and more people who are sick and tired of Francis but don’t want to be sedevacantists are turning to “that fox” (Lk 13:32) Joseph Ratzinger as their alternative. This gives them the happy illusion of having a real Pope who in their minds retains some semblance of orthodoxy, especially compared to the openly apostate Jorge Bergoglio. The leading English-speaking voice among them is Brother Alexis Bugnolo.… READ MORE

“Comfort of Migrants” – Francis adds new Invocation to Litany of Blessed Virgin Mary
The Frankster is at it again.
Today, June 20, 2020, he had his underling in the so-called Congregation for Divine Worship add three new titles for Our Lady to the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary, also called the Litany of Loreto. The first two are orthodox and not objectionable — the third one is born of Bergoglio’s liberation theology:
Mother of Mercy (Mater Misericordiae)
Mother of Hope (Mater Spei)
Comfort of Migrants (Solacium Migrantium)
“The first invocation shall be placed after ‘Mater Ecclesiæ’ [Mother of the Church], the second after ‘Mater divinæ gratiæ’ [Mother of Divine Grace], while the third shall be placed after ‘Refugium peccatorum’ [Refuge of Sinners]”, “Cardinal” Robert Sarah notes in the official letter announcing the addition of the new titles.… READ MORE
Benedict XVI leaves Vatican City to visit sick Brother in Germany
Fr. Joseph Ratzinger on Sep. 22, 2012
Fr. Joseph Ratzinger, the public heretic who played Pope of the Catholic Church under the stage name of “Benedict XVI” from 2005-13 and now calls himself “Pope Emeritus”, has left Vatican City for an indefinite period of time. This morning he was flown to Germany to visit his gravely ill brother, “Mgr.” Georg Ratzinger, who is 96 and resides at his private home in the Bavarian city of Regensburg (Ratisbonne).
Benedict, himself 93, arrived at Munich airport around noon local time, where he was picked up by “Bishop” Rudolf Voderholzer of Regensburg.… READ MORE
Vatican celebrates 60 Years of Ecumenism:
How it Contradicts Catholic Doctrine
Jorge Bergoglio with other non-Catholics in 2014
On Jan. 6, 1928, Pope Pius XI released Mortalium Animos, a magnificent encyclical against the false attempts at religious unity, today collectively known as “ecumenism”, that were beginning to blossom at the time.
Although the ecumenism that the Vatican II religion today worships as a new Golden Calf is not entirely identical to the ecumenism Pius XI condemned almost 100 years ago, it is nevertheless the very same error in essence, for it arose from it and still seeks a union between Catholics and non-Catholics that does not consist of what the same Pope identified as the only possible union: “…[T]he union of Christians can only be promoted by promoting the return to the one true Church of Christ of those who are separated from it, for in the past they have unhappily left it” (Mortalium Animos, n.… READ MORE
Contrary to our expectations, however, it wasn’t simply “more of the same” as his previous contributions. This time, he delivered a stunningly severe condemnation of the entire Novus Ordo religion and correctly pointed to the Second Vatican Council (Vatican II) as its root cause.… READ MORE
Invalid Resignation or Invalid Election?
Benedict XVI’s Denial of the Dogma of Papal Primacy
It is fashionable these days to come up with all sorts of ideas and theories that render the resignation of “Pope” Benedict XVI on Feb. 28, 2013, invalid. This thesis, which we have nicknamed “Resignationism”, is very comforting to those semi-traditionalists and conservatives in the Vatican II Church who can see clearly that Francis is not a Catholic but a manifest apostate and yet will not, for whatever reason, countenance Sedevacantism as the correct alternative position that alone can explain the madness we have been witnessing since the death of Pope Pius XII in 1958.… READ MORE
On June 6, 2020, Fr. Viganò — he’s a valid priest but not a bishop — released a 3-page open letter to U.S. President Donald Trump, in which he encourages him to stay the course against malicious, infernal forces trying to overturn the current social order and impose what amounts to a globalist secular Marxist tyranny. … READ MORE
Francis: “The Wounds inflicted on our Mother Earth are Wounds that also Bleed in Us”
Before Francis, there was Michael Jackson: Heal the World (1992)
Each day seems to be some other World Day of this or that secular cause observed by the United Nations, and June 5 happens to be that of the Environment.
It won’t take you long to guess who had something to say about it: Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”), of course. When it comes to matters of Sacred Theology, the man pretending to be the Pope of the Catholic Church is quick to confess his limited competence — with regard to everything else, he considers himself an expert.… READ MORE
Today, June 3, saw Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope” Francis) warn his hapless followers again that what he is about to tell them “seems like a heresy”. He’d infamously done it before — remember? –, although this time around, blasphemy would probably be the more accurate label. (That Francis doesn’t actually care about heresy or blasphemy is, of course, another matter.)
In any case, here’s what the Frankster said today during his General Audience. The topic was Abraham as a model for prayer:
Brothers and sisters, we learn from Abraham, we learn to pray with faith: to listen to the Lord, to walk, dialogue up to arguing.
Degoul recently gave an interview to the French Novus Ordo publication La Croix “about what the Mass means in the life of a believer”, specifically in the context of the recent Coronavirus restrictions.… READ MORE
Funny how every time the semi-trads try to make a 'Passion of the Church' analogy fit, they always forget that in such an analogy, the Pope would be Christ, not St. Peter! When the Church is persecuted, the Pope is the VICTIM, not the perpetrator! #fsspx
Kennedy Hall custom-manufactures a flawed 'Passion of the Church' analogy to fit the semi-trad #SSPX position - A false analogy to circumvent #Catholic teaching on the Papacy. Convenient! And by the way: Francis isn't St. Peter - he's Judas. #catholic
