Viganò’s Theological Vortex: A Critical Commentary
[Continued from PART 1]
Continuing with our critical assessment of the former Vatican nuncio “Abp.” Carlo Maria Viganò’s recent theological reflections, we now turn to his letter of Sep. 3, 2020, published by Catholic Family News the same day:
In that particular missive, Fr. Viganò complains of being charged with schism by his Novus Ordo opponents, but as we showed in Part 1 of our ongoing assessment, that point of criticism is justified.… READ MORE

“Bishop” Robert Barron on whether Protestants should become Catholics
The Novus Ordo Sect’s flagship American media bishop — a man who is considered hip, erudite, telegenic, and theologically middle-of-the-road — is Robert Emmett Barron.
Born in Chicago and now auxiliary “bishop” in Los Angeles, he is reputed to be a great and model evangelizer as he uses social and traditional media to spread knowledge and love of the Vatican II religion. Many years ago he founded an apologetics ministry called Word on Fire and produced a 10-part documentary grossly misnamed Catholicism, which aired on PBS and is available now on DVD and streaming.… READ MORE

Bergoglio’s Rocker: Buenos Aires Rocker “Priest” has Endorsement from “Pope” Francis
Embed from Getty Images
Cesar Scicchitano is the name of an Argentinian Novus Ordo priest in his mid-50s who is the frontman of a rock band called Los Pecadores. While such is by no means an unusual occurrence in Novus Ordo Land, this one comes with an added twist: “Father” Cesar’s undertaking has the explicit blessing of Jorge Bergoglio, the man otherwise known as “Pope” Francis. And that’s just the beginning.
According to a report published by the The China Post in 2013, Scicchitano has been friends with Francis for (now) over twenty years.… READ MORE

Francis assures Parents of Sodomites: “God loves your Children as they are”
Once again, Chaos Frank is doing what he does best — he’s making a mess.
Immediately following his General Audience on Wednesday, Sep. 16, 2020, he met briefly with about 40 people affiliated with the Tenda di Gionata (“Jonathan’s Tent”) group, an association founded in 2018 that lobbies for change in the Vatican II Sect so that openly practicing sodomites will be accepted and affirmed in their disordered inclinations.
Now that is a cause Francis can support, and the official newspaper of the Italian Novus Ordo bishops happily reported on the encounter right away.… READ MORE
A flick so revolting, even secularists are in shock…
Italian Novus Ordo Bishops’ Newspaper defends Quasi-Pedophiliac Movie Cuties
(We have blurred grave immodesty and suggestive poses in this
snapshot from the movie, which is featured in the Avvenire article.)
This post is being written with tears in the eyes, a lump in the throat, and mixed emotions. The emotions are anger, sadness, and nausea.
Avvenire is the official newspaper of the Italian Novus Ordo bishops’ conference, the so-called Conferenza Episcopale Italiana (CEI). On Sep. 16, 2020, this paper published an article defending the disgusting, evil, and utterly revolting movie Mignonnes, which in the English-speaking world has been released under the title Cuties.… READ MORE

Viganò’s Theological Vortex: A Critical Commentary
In recent weeks, the now well-known former Vatican nuncio to the United States, “Abp.” Carlo Maria Viganò, has spoken at great length again about his position on the Second Vatican Council and the “conciliar sect” (his words) that emerged from it. On Sep. 1 and 3, respectively, the recognize-and-resist paper Catholic Family News published two of his latest monographs on its web site. They can be found in the following posts:
Upon reading these texts, we decided that a critical commentary on them would be fitting. … READ MORE

Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter offers
sacrilegious “Lick-Off Communion” in Germany
On Sep. 15, 2020, people at St. Peter Canisius’ self-communicated by licking hosts off saucers
In the German town of Saarlouis, the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) has its own parish, the Church of St. Peter Canisius. In terms of externals, it is absolutely gorgeous. The pastor there is “Fr.” Christoph Fuisting.
However, as an organization that prides itself on supposedly retaining Catholic Tradition, what took place there on Sep. 13, 2020 (Fifteenth Sunday after Pentecost), defies belief.
As reported by the well-informed and highly-reliable Novus Ordo journalist Giuseppe Nardi, “Fr.”… READ MORE
The ‘Pontifical Academy for Black Lives Matter’
The useless so-called Pontifical Academy for Life, no stranger to controversy, sent out a tweet today showing a photoshopped image of Michelangelo’s famous Pietà sculpture — Our Lady on Mount Calvary holding the Body of her Divine Son after It was taken down from the Cross — with the skin color of the Body of Our Lord changed to black:
The caption provided by the Vatican academy is: “An image that is worth a speech.” The actual tweet can be accessed here.
Let’s be clear: Of course our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ redeemed the entire human race, people of any and all colors.… READ MORE
Sedevacantist pioneer has died…
Father Anthony Cekada, R.I.P. (1951-2020)
The sedevacantist priest, author, and seminary professor Fr. Anthony Cekada has died at his parish residence in West Chester, Ohio. This was announced moments ago on Twitter by Bp. Daniel Dolan, pastor of St. Gertrude’s Church:
Fr Cekada died peacefully this morning, surrounded by prayer, and well fortified by the Sacraments of the Church. Please remember this good and generous priestly soul in your prayers. The funeral is scheduled for Thursday morning, with the wake Wednesday evening.
Fr. Cekada had been suffering from complications after a series of strokes.… READ MORE

Discernment is calling: Jesuit Novus Ordo Priest calls for Legalization of Abortion in “Complex” Cases!
Long-time readers of this blog may recall that just over two years ago, in July of 2018, we reported on a Jesuit Novus Ordo priest in the Dominican Republic, “Fr.” Mario Serrano Marte (pictured above), who was publicly calling for the legalization of the slaughter of the unborn (commonly known as abortion).
It would be an exaggeration to say he got a slap on the wrist at the time — it was more like a caress. According to a report on the scandal by the national newspaper Diario Libre, the then-auxiliary “bishop” of the diocese in which Serrano was working, Jesús Castro Marte, stated that what the Jesuit had said in favor of abortion rights was merely his “personal position” and did not reflect the stance of the Society of Jesus.… READ MORE

The whacky Disco Jesuit gives a whole new meaning to “active participation”!
We have found Francis’ Noble Savage! He lives in Australia and dances half-naked at Novus Ordo deacons’ ordinations to invoke pagan spirits — all in harmony with Mother Earth! (For those who prefer a Sri Lankan Kandyan dance in their Modernist worship service, the Vatican II Sect never fails to deliver.)
Picture of Francis burned at COVID-measures protest in Rome: “…there was a significant presence of Catholic traditionalists and conservatives at the demonstration, including protesters who carried a version of the gold-and-white papal flag with an image of Benedict XVI.… READ MORE

Benedict XVI implicated as former Vatican Official accused of committing Sexual Abuse in Secretariat of State
The fact that “Pope” Francis warned against the sin of gossip in his Angelus address for the umpteenth time today may be no accident: A new sex abuse scandal is rocking the Vatican II Sect, and this time it’s about criminal behavior allegedly committed inside Vatican City, between adults (but not consensual), by an official working for the Secretariat of State in close contact with “Pope” Benedict XVI. Complaints to superiors reportedly fell on deaf ears, and Benedict XVI himself is accused of simply transferring the alleged offender elsewhere, eventually.… READ MORE

Vatican Official is Chaplain of three Masonic Lodges, publishes Book on reconciling Catholicism and Freemasonry
The August-September 2020 issue of Inside the Vatican contains a most interesting article on the increasing toleration, if not outright approval, of overt “Catholic” Freemasons by the Vatican II Church. The piece is entitled, “New Openings to Make Masonic Membership Permissible?” (pp. 34-35) and is written by the magazine’s editor-in-chief, Dr. Robert Moynihan. The text is available in full on the ITV web site.
Moynihan reports that on Feb. 12, 2020, an Austrian Novus Ordo priest by the name of “Fr.”… READ MORE

The Morality of Voting:
Is it Permissible to Vote for the Lesser of two Evils?
This is not a political post. It’s a post about the Catholic position as regards voting in democratic elections, which falls within the purview of the Church’s moral theology. The reason for publishing this post is to instruct Catholics who are not sufficiently familiar with the topic so as to clarify what is often misunderstood, remove doubt and uncertainty, and ease consciences.
First, let’s look at a brief general overview.
In their magnificent 2-vol. summary of Catholic morality, the Dominican Fathers John McHugh and Charles Callan included a succinct treatment of voting, which we quote below.… READ MORE
