New book proves it was neither an illusion nor a hoax!
The Miracle of the Sun at Fatima was Real:
On October 13, 1917, approximately 70,000 people gathered in a field known as the Cova da Iría in Fatima, Portugal, to witness a spectacular miracle that a little shepherd girl had told them the Blessed Virgin Mary would perform on that day. At the precise time predicted, for approximately ten minutes, there occurred what has become known as the “Miracle of the Sun”, described as “extraordinary solar activity, such as the Sun appearing to ‘dance’ or zig-zag in the sky, careen towards the Earth, or emit multicolored light and radiant colors” (Wikipedia).… READ MORE

The End of the World and the Antichrist
Detail from Luca Signorelli’s Deeds of the Antichrist, ca. 1501
There has always been much talk about the Antichrist and the end of times. Some people have a virtual obsession with this topic, so much so that they neglect their own spiritual lives, forgetting that understanding and figuring out every bit of divine prophecy is neither required, nor necessarily salutary, nor even possible (cf. 2 Pet 1:20; Mk 13:31-33). As St. Paul said to the Corinthians: “And if I should have prophecy and should know all mysteries, and all knowledge, and if I should have all faith, so that I could remove mountains, and have not charity, I am nothing” (1 Cor 13:2).… READ MORE

Before Vatican II:
What Catholic Nuns used to be like
Not everything was perfect in the Catholic Church before the Second Vatican Council (1962-65), but by and large things were in proper order and the Church was flourishing.
One of the most visible ways one can demonstrate the utter devastation caused by the aggiornamento (“updating”) of Vatican II, is by comparing Catholic nuns before and after the “Great Renewal”.
We recently stumbled upon the following 2-minute clip in which a Welsh Carmelite novice is interviewed by a TV reporter. (A novice is a nun who has not yet taken vows but is preparing to.)… READ MORE

Pope Pius IX condemns Anti-Christian Civilization: Exclusive English Translation of Allocution Iamdudum Cernimus (1861)
The Supreme Pontiff Pius IX (reigned 1846-1878)
Virtually everyone who considers himself a traditional Roman Catholic has heard of Pope Pius IX’s famous Syllabus of Errors. It is a list of some of the chief philosophical, theological, and socio-political errors of the 19th century. A total of 80 condemned theses, the list was appended to the encyclical Quanta Cura and released together with it on Dec. 8, 1864.
With regard to how the Syllabus came to be, the Catholic Encyclopedia explains:

The commission [for the creation of the Syllabus] took the wording of the errors to be condemned from the official declarations of Pius IX and appended to each of the eighty theses a reference indicating its content, so as to determine the true meaning and the theological value of the subjects treated.

The Battle for the Catholic Ethos:
Peter Kwasniewski tries to save Recognize-and-Resist
On Mar. 26, 2021, the well-known semi-traditionalist lecturer and retired theology professor Dr. Peter Kwasniewski posted a message on Facebook that attempts to salvage the theologically-embattled recognize-and-resist position. The entire post reads as follows:

Is “Recognize and Resist” antithetical to the Catholic ethos? Can quotations from Leo XIII of other popes of the last 150 years rule it out?
Obviously one should not ever want to be in a position of resisting a wayward pope, who is ventilating his private and dubious theological opinions from his chair, or who, while strenuously avoiding the requisites of infallibility, sows confusion and error.
Theology has consequences…
Vatican II in Action: Nigerian Diocese builds Mosque for Muslim Refugees
The Novus Ordo bishop of Yola in front of the mosque being built for IDPs in Adamawa, Nigeria
It is well-known that the members of the Vatican II Sect worship the same god as the Moslems. They say so themselves. In the 1964 dogmatic constitution Lumen Gentium of their beloved Second Vatican Council, they note that the followers of Islam “along with us adore the one and merciful God, who on the last day will judge mankind” (n. 16).
Now, we know what god the Muslims worship because they are happy to let us know.… READ MORE
Catholicism vs. the Novus Ordo religion
In a Nutshell:
The Roman Catholic Church vs. the Vatican II Church
It just doesn’t fit: the Vatican II religion isn’t Catholicism
This past Sunday was Low Sunday, on which Holy Mother Church in the Roman rite reads the Gospel of the doubting St. Thomas, to whom our Blessed Lord replied: “Because thou hast seen me, Thomas, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and have believed” (Jn 20:29).
Fr. Nicolás Despósito of the sedevacantist Most Holy Trinity Seminary used the occasion to give an eloquent and highly informative sermon explaining what “I believe in the Holy Catholic Church” actually means.… READ MORE

Salacious Dance Crew opens “Ladder to Heaven” Installation in Vienna Cathedral
The notorious “Cardinal” Christoph Schönborn, O.P., and his sidekick “Fr.” Anton Faber have once again found a way to desecrate St. Stephen’s Cathedral in the Austrian capital of Vienna under the guise of “art”.
Never mind that during the Lenten season there was installed, once again, an oversized purple sweater to cover the otherwise unimpeded view of the beautiful traditional sanctuary art. That’s simply small potatoes compared to what else just went on in the gorgeous building that was once consecrated exclusively to the worship of the Most Holy Trinity.… READ MORE

Sympathy for the Devil: Vatican Newspaper tries to elicit Compassion for Judas Iscariot on Holy Thursday
It is not a secret that “Pope” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) has a soft spot for Judas Iscariot, the traitor whom our Blessed Lord called the “son of perdition” (Jn 17:12).
The false pope said as much in a television broadcast in 2017 on the Italian Novus Ordo channel TV2000. The program featured an in-depth conversation with Francis about the Lord’s Prayer, which has since been released as a book in English translation: Our Father: Reflections on the Lord’s Prayer (New York, NY: Image Books, 2018).… READ MORE

Hell’s Apostle Called to Judgment:
Über-Modernist Theologian Hans Küng Dead at 93
Big news on Easter Tuesday: One of the world’s most dangerous, most notorious, and most prolific apostates has been called to judgment.
We are talking about the Swiss theologian Fr. Hans Küng. According to reports, the famous “church critic” died in his sleep on April 6, 2021, at his home in Tübingen, Germany.
Born on Mar. 19, 1928, Kung was ordained a priest for the diocese of Basel, Switzerland, on Oct. 10, 1954, clearly one of the most fateful mistakes in ecclesiastical history.… READ MORE

Occultists masquerading as “Traditional Catholics”
On January 12, 2021, a researcher who goes by the pseudonym Alistair McFadden and describes himself as a “traditional Catholic layman unschooled in either philosophy or theology”, published a lengthy article entitled “Observations on the Influence of the Occult in Traditional Catholic Discourse”. It uncovers unsettling facts about an occultist influence on “Traditional Catholicism” or “Catholic Traditionalism” — and here we use the term in a very loose sense.
The essay was published on the social media platform Medium and takes over an hour to read in full. Here is the direct link:
The sedevacantist media apostolate True Restoration has recently provided a summary of McFadden’s lengthy but highly-informative monograph.… READ MORE

Way of the Cross in the Vatican: “Dear Jesus, only You know how hard it is to Wake Up every Morning after Wetting the Bed”
On Good Friday, we commemorate the Passion, Crucifixion, and Death of Jesus Christ, which He willingly and lovingly underwent for our Redemption. An excellent and very traditional way to enter into the mysteries of our Blessed Lord’s Passion is to pray the Stations of the Cross, also known as the Way of the Cross (Via Crucis in Latin).
The Way of the Cross begins with Christ being condemned to death by Pilate and ends with our Lord’s burial.… READ MORE

Flashback 2010: “Cardinal” Bergoglio Jokes about the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ
In 2010, authors Sergio Rubin and Francesca Ambrogetti published the book El Jesuita: Conversaciones con el Cardenal Jorge Bergoglio, SJ [“The Jesuit: Conversations with Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio, SJ”], in which the then-“Archbishop” of Buenos Aires speaks about his life, his work, and his spirituality, and answers questions presented by the authors.
After Bergoglio’s election as “Pope” of the “Catholic Church”, that is, as head of the Modernist Vatican II Sect, an English translation of the book appeared under the title Pope Francis: His Life in His Own Words.… READ MORE

“For Fear of the Jews”: How the Novus Ordo Good Friday Prayer betrays the Crucified Christ
The Roman Catholic Church, in her loving kindness and care, having been entrusted by the Son of God with the mission to preach the Gospel and convert all men to the true Faith (see Mk 16:15-16), greatly desires the salvation of all people. Knowing that man was not made for this world, but for eternal beatitude in Heaven, she lovingly seeks to detach him from the state of sin he finds himself in and lift him up to the life of Faith and virtue through the grace merited by our Lord Jesus Christ, who declared: “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.… READ MORE
