TRADCAST 032 now available
TRADCAST — The Traditional Catholic Podcast
In case you missed our initial announcement on Apr. 28: We have published another full-length episode of our popular TRADCAST podcast program. As always, it is loaded with real traditional Catholicism, insightful commentary, hard-hitting refutations of various errors, and razor-sharp analysis. Our content is typically challenging but is always delivered in an accessible way with a relieving touch of humor, so necessary in our chaotic and bizarre times.
TRADCAST 032 discusses sundry different topics:
In view of the increasing popularity of the idea that Benedict XVI is “still” the Pope (and Francis’ election was invalid), the first segment begins with a look at the Modernism of Joseph Ratzinger, illustrated by his strange ideas on original sin, which are not compatible with the perennial Catholic doctrine on the matter. By focusing on secondary aspects of original sin and making them primary, Ratzinger uses the same approach to theology that Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) does. Shifting our focus to Francis, we see how his constant undue emphasis of the natural aspects of the Gospel quickly turn the Good News of Christ into little more than a humanitarian message of doing good to others. This is illustrated with sundry examples from Francis’ nine years of harming souls. The ultimate logical consequence of the principles enshrined at Vatican II, which both Benedict and Francis have applied and developed, is utter apostasy.
In the second part of TRADCAST 032, we begin by critiquing Kennedy Hall’s mischaracterization of Sedevacantism as “doubting the Papacy as a whole”, and we point out that a recent article at The Wanderer admits that it is possible to tell whether someone is a heretic even without a Church judgment. We then look at how Stephen Kokx at Life Site extols “Abp.” Carlo Maria Viganò as a quasi-pope, and we blast The Remnant‘s latest outrageous and intolerable theology put forward by Jason Morgan. In our From the Jorge’s Mouth subsegment, we critically examine some of the more recent drivel spouted by Francis and show how it leads to apostasy. The podcast ends with an insightful commentary on Isaias 22, which is traditionally understood to foreshadow the Papacy in the New Covenant, but which may even hint that the Papacy will temporarily be “taken out of the way” (2 Thess 2:7) as we are presently experiencing.
If you are new to this program, you will find that listening to TRADCAST is like drinking from a firehose of information.
