Jesuit Jojo has a Pantheist message for you: Everyone and everything is divine!
After Traditionis Custodes with its Responsa ad Dubia: Vatican said to be preparing visitations for Fraternity of St. Peter, Institute of Christ the King, and Institute of the Good Shepherd to be carried out in February; “papal delegates” may be appointed to oversee existing superiors. And of course contemplative life, too, is on the chopping block. This is one of those times when the “pastors” don’t care to “listen to the flock”….
More aggiornamento, please! “Cardinal” Michael Czerny says the Novus Ordo Church needs to finally get serious about embracing Vatican II. “Cardinal” Rodriguez Maradiaga is also looking forward to some serious “innovative renewal” now! (By the way: Why hasn’t this guy had to resign yet? Perhaps more than anyone, “Cardinal” Becciu would like to know.)
Bad habits: Dutch Trappists get sustainable denim outfits.
“Catholic” academics in 2021: “A student at the Catholic Loyola Marymount University was dismayed to find out her professor deducted points on her final paper because the student referred to God with the masculine pronoun ‘he’.” — You know, as in “Our Father” (Mt 6:9) or “in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost” (Mt 28:19). Is it surprising that the same university is also allowing abortion giant Planned Parenthood to hold a fundraiser on its campus?
Hey, who said Jesuits don’t go on pilgrimage?!
Put on your surprise face, if you have one left: Francis celebrates five openly Marxist organizations and also names Jeffrey Sachs to Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences. Oh yeah, and it turns out that multiple groups receiving funding from the Catholic Campaign for Human Development belong to a vast pro-abortion network.
Novus Ordo life after Francis: Groups are beginning to organize themselves in preparation for next conclave, with “Cardinal” Matteo Zuppi a leading contender.
Vatican II theology at full throttle: “If there’s no Holy Spirit, it’s not a synod!” How about: “If it’s a Modernist synod, there’s no Holy Spirit”?
It’s time again for the dancing youths that are “journeying” somewhere: World Youth Day ’23 prep.
“There is no greater poverty than a life without faith in God, Pope Francis said in a recent message.” Really now? It worked out great for that Italian atheist who had his son baptized….
Mr. Zuhlsdorf is excited that Mr. Hunwicke has found a Vatican II way to legitimize the Society of St. Pius X. It should ring a few bells that it takes Vatican II ecclesiology to vindicate the SSPX, no?
Should be a comedy book: Benedict XVI, Defender of the Faith released by Joseph Pearce. (You know, that “defender of the Faith”.)
Two German Novus Ordo bishops contribute essays to book Catholic and Queer, in which “lesbian, gay, same-sex, bisexual, trans, inter, non-binary and other queer people describe their experiences with faith and the church,” and which “also contains statements from people close to them such as parents or siblings, as well as from associations, theologians and pastoral ministers.”
The Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Culture is moving “toward a New Humanism” by “rethinking anthropology.” What could possibly go wrong?!
In case you were wondering: Timeline of what the Vatican Finance Trial is about. Oh yeah, and what is Francis’ role in that, anyway?
In all seriousness, a Novus Ordo news org asks: Could John Paul II be declared a Doctor of the Church? Well… Witch Doctor maybe!
Now even dying is bad for the planet: Novus Ordo archbishop in Iowa encourages liquifying corpses to save the environment.
Imagine how different the Novus Ordo Sect would be if it cared half as much about the salvation of souls as it does about saving the planet…
When walls come in handy: “Workers this week started digging holes for an eight-foot wall outside the abbey for the Benedictines of Mary, Queen of Apostles this week near Gower. The sisters are thanking benefactors for extra protection after several shootings into the abbey walls during the past two years.” See, sometimes bridges just don’t cut it!
Francis warns COP26: Climate change damage is as bad as a Third World War!
The “New Springtime” that wasn’t: Finally, one of those 1960s spaceship churches is being demolished!
Anti-Sedevacantist and former Lefebvrist John Salza has lost it completely: “But a mass exodus of Catholics from the Church in the name of ‘tradition’ may be the Great Apostasy forewarned by Our Lady of Fatima.” Yeah, that’s it: The Great Apostasy is people leaving the ecumenical Vatican II Sect for Catholicism, not people adhering to the Vatican apostate-in-chief’s teaching that false religions represent “the richness of different ways of coming to God”…. By the way, how’s that Francis-endorsed Abrahamic Family House coming along?

Need a “Faith Tune-Up”? U.S. Catholic promotes neo-pagan sensual garbage such as “entering into intimacy with our own bodies”, appreciating the “sacramentality of our own flesh” — and claims Christ reached out with “earthy pleasures of nourishment” and used bread and wine “as symbols of his own body and blood.” There’s just nothing Catholic left with these people!
Because they’re all about catechesis in the New Church: Vatican produces liturgical rite for institution of catechists.
Italian journalist Riccardo Cascioli argues that the LGBTQ Lobby has already triumphed at the upcoming Synod.

As the Frankster turns 85, a secular journalist says he has taken the gloves off against his opponents.
Kwasniewski to the rescue: Just in time, the semi-trads’ favorite academic cranks out a book on “true” obedience — presumably without an imprimatur — so they can continue to recognize Francis while resisting whatever they personally deem to require resistance. Nifty! Chances are that book won’t include this quote from Dom Prosper Gueranger’s The Liturgical Year, however….
Bad news for Peter Kwasniewski and “Fr.” John Hunwicke: Their hero Cardinal John Henry Newman held that a Pope who becomes a public heretic would by that very fact automatically cease to be Pope.

Louie Verrecchio points out that semi-trads don’t have a get-out-of-jail-free card on Vatican II. He also explains why believes that “Archbishop Vigano’s ‘Anti-Globalist Alliance’ is destined to fail”, and he duly warns of the “institutional Church / valid Catholic” hoax.
