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. In 23 minutes, Fr. Desposito lays out the basic tenets of the Roman Catholic religion, beginning with the nature of Faith and the so-called motives of credibility, which constitute the rational foundation of the Faith and so demonstrate that it is reasonable to believe. Father also explains the nature and purpose of the Church, how she teaches, and how Catholics must adhere to her doctrine.
Here is the full sermon:

Having thus made the case for Catholicism, Fr. Desposito then contrasts it with the Vatican II Church (Novus Ordo Church), its false doctrines, its harmful laws, its contempt for the sacred, and its other evil effects. In short, Father shows how the counterfeit church dissolves Roman Catholicism. Father also explains how, in light of the Church’s teaching, the recognize-and-resist position is an absurdity that does not fit into the framework of the Catholic Faith.
This sermon is a keeper! It’s a handy guide to introduce newcomers to a general overview of the facts, and it is definitely worth sharing with prospective converts or anyone who needs help understanding why we are traditional Roman Catholics and disavow the Modernist sect of the Second Vatican Council.
For those new to real Catholicism, or anyone who wants to have a comprehensive overview or better understanding of Catholic belief and practice, we highly recommend The Catholic Catechism (1932) compiled by Cardinal Peter Gasparri. It is available for free download here.
Thank you, Fr. Desposito!
Indeed, “blessed are they that have not seen, and have believed” (Jn 20:29).
