A refutation of Carol Meyer…
God’s Mercy and the Eternity of Hell:
Reply to a genuine Heretic
Question: Would a good God condemn anyone to hell? Short answer: Yes, He would.
On Feb. 3, 2011, a writer by the name of Carol Meyer published a blog post on the “EarthBeat” section of the grossly misnamed National Catholic Reporter. It is a 570-word screed entitled “Debunking the Myth of Hell”.
Needless to say, in her brief post attacking the Catholic dogma of eternal punishment for those who die in mortal sin, Mrs. Meyer does no actual debunking whatsoever, she merely affirms vociferously that she does not believe what God has revealed because she doesn’t see how it could be true.… READ MORE
They’re mocking Our Lord all over again…
“Climate Crucifix” in Salford Cathedral
The Novus Ordo Modernists occupying our beautiful Roman Catholic churches never run out of ideas for profaning the sacred. We need but recall the sickening, blasphemous “Jesus Clock” perpetrated by “Bishop” Hermann Glettler of Innsbruck, or the no-less-blasphemous “crucifix” in the seminary chapel in Graz. Both examples are from Austria, one of the hotbeds of sacrilegious “art” and architecture in Europe.
Today’s example of ridiculing and humiliating Our Beloved Savior Jesus Christ comes from the diocese of Salford, England (click image for larger version):
This abomination is found in not just any church within the diocese, however.… READ MORE

Francis drops another Heresy Bomb:
“Friendship with Jesus cannot be broken”
Every year on Dec. 3 the United Nations observes an “International Day of Persons with Disabilities”. Not surprisingly, the secularist organization’s garrulous de facto chaplain, Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”), has released a message for the occasion:
There is nothing wrong, of course, with a Catholic Pope — which is what Bergoglio pretends to be — releasing a message for disabled people. In fact, it is perhaps a particularly opportune time to reach souls.… READ MORE

Is there a “Problem” with Transubstantiation?
Response to Hendro Munsterman
The beautiful Catholic dogma of Transubstantiation has long been a thorn in the side of Modernists and other heretical innovators. Not surprisingly, therefore, it is also under attack in the Novus Ordo Church, which, although teaching the dogma in its official universal catechism, denies or attacks it in various other ways.
For instance, the Vatican II Church undermines belief in the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist by the way it offers “Mass”, in the way “Holy Communion” is distributed, and in the fact that it authorizes even heretics and now also public adulterers to receive the ostensible Blessed Sacrament under certain circumstances.… READ MORE

“Mary’s Troublemaker” imprisoned in Ireland
Dubliner Andy Heasman, 42
In this brief post we would like to ask for prayers for Mr. Andy Heasman, a vociferous Catholic activist in Ireland who was recently arrested, reportedly for a “public order offense”.
The details of the charges are not clear (to us), but Heasman has been given a two-month prison sentence and is currently in “isolation” at Castlerea. The following links help shed more light on the matter:

Response to Robert Morrison of ‘The Remnant’…
Built on Rock or on Sand? “Pope” Francis and the Divine Foundation of the Roman Catholic Church
On Nov. 16, 2021, the web site of the American semi-traditionalist newspaper The Remnant published an article by Robert Morrison entitled, “How the Modernists and Francis Turn Catholic Foundations into Sand”.
It is a justified critique of the Modernist concept of “faith” and Antipope Francis‘ synodal process, which is obviously aimed at changing the Catholic religion even further than the last 60 years have done. “But if everything is open to debate”, Morrison writes, “then we believe based on the consensus of men” and not on the authority of God revealing.… READ MORE
Uniting the clans?
President of Catholic Answers is featured Speaker at SSPX Angelus Press Conference
How times change!
Catholic Answers is a lay-run Novus Ordo apologetics organization founded by Karl Keating in 1979. It is located in El Cajon, California, and its current president is Christopher Check, who was appointed in 2015 with the endorsement of Keating. Catholic Answers is as mainstream Novus Ordo as it gets and, at least until “Pope” Francis came along, it was considered a conservative organization. When Jorge Bergoglio (Francis) moved into the Vatican in 2013, it became more and more difficult to keep up the facade of being conservative and Catholic while still being perfectly obedient to the Jesuit apostate.… READ MORE

Pre-Vatican II Theologian: Catholicity of Church “Very Restricted” during Great Apostasy

Earlier this month we published a post on St. Augustine of Hippo writing to one Bp. Hesychius regarding the Church’s visibility during the Great Apostasy before Christ returns:
The question of the visibility of the Church is a crucial one, for the Church founded by Christ is visible by her very nature and she must ever remain in her essential constitution exactly the way Christ founded her: “But since the Church is such [having both visible and invisible elements] by divine will and constitution, such it must uniformly remain to the end of time.… READ MORE

TRADCAST 031 features a diversity of topics: We begin the first segment by contrasting Francis’ insistence that no one be marginalized, excluded, or discriminated against for being different, with his new Vatican City ordinance that excludes from entry all those who do not present a so-called “Green Pass”.… READ MORE
Can you guess in what context?!
Hot Air Alert:
Francis warns Mankind of God’s Judgment!
Breaking news: The Jesuit apostate Jorge Bergoglio, better known by his stage name, “Pope Francis”, has suddenly warned mankind of “God’s judgment” if it should not finally amend its ways!
What brought this on? Did the false pope accidentally open an accurate translation of the New Testament? Did memory of his childhood catechism classes suddenly return? Did he have a long-overdue conversion a few weeks before his 85th birthday? Is he becoming remorseful concerning all the Modernist piffle he has been spouting for so many years?… READ MORE

Thirteen Inconvenient Questions
for the Society of St. Pius X
It has now been over three years that the priestly fraternity established in 1970 by Abp. Marcel Lefebvre, the so-called Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), has had a new superior general. On July 11, 2018, the SSPX general chapter convened in Econe, Switzerland, and elected Fr. Davide Pagliarani for a twelve-year term to succeed Bp. Bernard Fellay as head of the group, who had been in office since 1994.
Considering how antithetical to all the SSPX stands for, the last eight-and-a-half years under “Pope” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) have been, one would think that the Lefebvrists are up in arms against the brazen apostasy being constantly perpetrated by the man they insist is the Vicar of Christ on earth.… READ MORE
Free Tattoos offered in Novus Ordo church in Frankfurt
If you thought the “Show-Your-Tattoo Mass” we reported on in 2014 was bad, wait till you read this story.
On Saturday, Oct. 23, 2021 in Frankfurt, Germany, the historic 16th-century Liebfrauenkirche (Church of Our Lady), currently used as a monastic church and occuppied by clerics of the Vatican II Sect, was defiled by an absurd spectacle: For a total of roughly five hours, the church was open for people to enter and get a calligraphical tattoo imprinted on their skin, free of charge. Participants had to choose from one of eight pre-selected words or phrases.… READ MORE

Saint Augustine: “The Church Will Not Appear” during Great Tribulation before Christ’s Return
When people debate the issue of Sedevacantism, sooner or later someone who does not agree with the position will object that Sedevacantism is not reconcilable with the Catholic doctrine of the Church’s visibility.
While it is certainly true that our current situation presents some difficulties in that regard, the objection is by no means as powerful as it is often thought to be. The following articles provide some good information on the visibility issue:
If Sedevacantism were understood to mean that the Church does not, per se and by unalterable divine institution, have a visible hierarchy, then such a position would indeed be unacceptable because it would be heretical.… READ MORE
