Chronicling the unending infernal chaos of the Vatican II Sect…

September 29, 2022

Francis enjoyed some ‘interpretive dance’ in Assisi this past September 24…

Francis promotes “love poet”: Portuguese ‘Cardinal’ José Tolentino de Mendonça appointed head of Vatican Dicastery for Culture and Education.

The expensive ‘assisted suicide’ of the Novus Ordo Church: A new ‘altar’ for a new religion. (Here’s a video of it!)

Since he considers the salvation of souls as overrated, Francis instead focuses on saving the planet.

In a homily in Wausau, Wisconsin, “Cardinal” Raymond Burke warns of an ‘advancing apostasy’ in the Church. He just seems to have trouble identifying the ‘advanced apostate’ behind it.

The Novus Ordo Sect’s star “evangelizer”, “Bp.” Robert Barron, honors the late Queen Elizabeth II, head of the false Anglican religion, “as an evangelist, and a faithful and unpretentious disciple of her Lord.” In other words, Catholic or Anglican — who cares? That’s exactly what Francis thinks, too! Hey, at least Barron is going to establish his own order of priests, so…. Never mind he thinks the prophet Elias was ‘fired’ by God for slaughtering the pagan prophets of Baal. That must be why Christ allowed Elias to converse with Him during the Transfiguration (see Mk 9:3).

We can rest easy now: Francis knows what will ‘save humanity’.

They told you that if it hadn’t been for Vatican II, Catholic churches would be mere museums now! But they fooled you — they made the old traditional churches into museums anyway! (The ones they didn’t turn into other things, that is….)

When he’s not teaching that God wants there to be many different religions because they’re an “enrichment” to humanity, Francis teaches that the divisions among Christians must be overcome for the sake of making converts. Maybe he can make up his mind at some point: What happened to “enrichment” and “different ways of coming to God”?!

Two Novus Ordo cardinals and a historian accuse Francis of not being faithful enough to… Vatican II, duh!

Come on, they reject nothing that is true and holy about idolatry: “The archdiocese of Goa, under the newly-created cardinal Filipe Neri Ferrão, is defending clergy visits to Hindu idols, following a furious backlash from faithful Catholics.” Hey, maybe this petition will fix it. At least the ‘Sisters of Charity’ are still Catholic there! 😉

Feeling worn out lately? Maybe this liturgical ‘Easter Dance’ will get you back on your feet!

“Zero tolerance” Bergoglio knows exactly whom he raises to the status of “cardinal”…. And whom he does not tolerate in his Curia. By the way: Does anyone remember the Zanchetta affair? PART 1 | PART 2 | PART 3 | PART4 (and more here)

Be seekers of the truth, Francis tells Italian pilgrims. Yeah, and once they’ve found it, he blasts them for rigidly adhering to certainties! At least he leaves ‘preachers of beauty’ alone.

No ‘hermeneutic of continuity’ for Georg Bätzing: Religion is ‘interruption,’ not continuity, German Novus Ordo bishops’ president says.

A preview of what’s to come: The 2023 Synod on Synodality isn’t going to be pretty. Just look at who’s writing the main document. Oh yeah, and this is what the “cardinal” who is the secretary general of the synod had to say at a press conference: “To understand the Synodal Process one must think of a fruitful circularity of prophecy and discernment. If all are prophets in the people of God, not all said is the voice of the Spirit. One must find in many voices the voice of the Spirit.” These people believe that Divine Revelation is still ongoing!

Those Vatican synod surveys…. they wouldn’t be astroturfed, would they?

Asking for a friend: Does your local Novus Ordo church have a liturgical dog? Don’t worry, Francis won’t care… unless the dog starts barking in Latin maybe.

Leading German Jesuit calls for church ‘reform’ at different speeds. Either way, the destination is the same — and very hot.

For businessmen to be able to enter Heaven, Francis lists seven conditions. For everyone else it’s free admittance — even for “good” atheists — because they have a “right” to heaven! That’s Naturalism on steroids. Here’s a reality check: “For the wages of sin is death. But the grace of God, life everlasting, in Christ Jesus our Lord” (Rom 6:23); “For by grace you are saved through faith, and that not of yourselves, for it is the gift of God; not of works, that no man may glory” (Eph 2:8-9).

What eternal bliss isn’t: The Naturalist heaven of ‘Fr.’ David Michael.

“Brazilian Cardinal Leonardo Ulrich Steiner, O.F.M., insists that homosexual civil unions are merely a matter of financial security, not a question of moral theology, and that Catholic moral teaching cannot be imposed on non-believers” — unlike Bergoglio’s teaching about fraternity and the environment, right?!

An aging Irish boomer presbyter is on the verge of despair — he thought Catholicism had been stamped out!

He just can’t leave it alone: Francis overhauls Order of Malta. Predictably, not everyone there is thrilled. In fact, some are ready to call it quits.

Caution! The “United States Conference of Catholic Bishops” is hearing voices…. at least in September. Speaking of which, do you know what the USCCB supports? We’ve long said that USCCB really stands for “Underlings of Satan Creating Chaos for Bergoglio”.

What, you didn’t know Christ arose from a nuclear blast? Well, what do you think THIS is?? It’s right there in the Vatican’s hell hall.

“Gender-inclusive housing” on Novus Ordo university campuses — what could possibly go wrong?!

Only in the Novus Ordo: “Eucharist flies off table during outdoor Mass offered by priest in LGBT ‘pride’ stole”. More on that circus right here.

Francis urges pro-LGBT Deloitte to push ‘inclusion’ in building ‘more humane’ world… “In completely avoiding any mention of Christianity, or of God … Pope Francis also managed to avoid any condemnation of the company’s promotion of the LGBT movement.”

Finally, the ‘Catholic Church’ in Malaysia gets serious about the Gospel by tackling plastic pollution.

Death of a devil: “Abp.” Rembert Weakland called to judgment at age 95. Reminder: The Many ‘Sins and Crimes’ of Rembert Weakland. And what did Hellboy say about Weakland? Let’s just say he ended up apologizing for his words.

Novus Ordos in Benin want a “more prophetic” Church. Maybe they could start with accepting Divine Revelation. Presumably “the mystique of listening” will get in the way, though.

Dear semi-trads: The Modernists can play the “not infallible” card, too, you know.

George Neumayr explains how disgraced ‘Cardinal’ Roger Mahony has effectively been rehabilitated. Meanwhile: “Cardinal McElroy’s elevation has ‘enormous significance’ for US church”, says Michael Sean Winters. Surprise: McElroy refuses interview with Life Site. At least he talks to the Jesuit rag America.

Novus Ordo nuns are in decline. Looks like most young women just aren’t into “emerg[ing] from this space of deeper meaning-making to be of service to the life of the world.”

Who could have seen this coming? In synod reports, U.S. Novus Ordos call for women’s leadership, LGBTQ welcoming. If that’s not the Holy Spirit speaking!

It is astonishing to see how people can figure out Francis is not a Catholic, they just can’t figure out he’s not the Pope — as if the Pope didn’t have to be a Catholic to be the guarantor of orthodoxy, principle of unity, and rock of stability in the Church.

As always, Bergoglio knows exactly where the liturgical problems are in his church: Francis asks Specialists ‘Not To Reduce the Liturgy to Rubric Detail Disquisitions’. Meanwhile, the ‘New Evangelization’ has arrived in Portugal, and in Austria they celebrate a “Samba Mass”. Those who prefer a Feminist liturgy might wish to try the ‘Junia service’ in Germany. Or how about this “Puerto Rican rite” as a compromise? If you want something with personal “papal” approval, though, you might wish to try a liturgy with the “Eucharistic rave priest”.

While some old-school nations are still debating whether women ‘priests’ should even be allowed, in Switzerland one is already retiring

“Two state-sponsored church bodies in China have elected new leaders, who promised to invigorate the Catholic faithful pastorally in line with the socialist principles of the Chinese Communist Party.” No wonder Francis wants to renew the Vatican-China agreement!

Poor “Bishop” John Stowe doesn’t understand why some want to bless arms but not same-sex couples. Perhaps because weapons aren’t to blame if someone misuses them?

Bergoglio responds to exasperated conservative Novus Ordo priest who asked him: ‘Don’t we have a place in the Church?’

Dear Dr. Kwasniewski: When you accept a public apostate as Pope and then try to “rethink” the Papacy in order to make it all fit, don’t be surprised if a Novus Ordo blogger blasts you for “old-fashioned dissent”. He’s got a point!

Wait, what now? John Salza says his One Peter Five piece ‘Against Sedevacantism’ was really against the SSPX, but the One Peter Five editors “required” him to replace SSPX with sede references.

Dear editors at Vatican News, this headline doesn’t sound right. Please rephrase.

Alphabet perverts get recognition: “A pilgrimage of LGBTQ+ Catholics celebrated Mass a Mexico City’s Basilica of Our Lady of Guadalupe, and the pilgrimage organizing group, the Global Network of Rainbow Catholics (GNRC), was publicly recognized at the liturgy.” Come on, they’re just imitating their boss: Francis welcomes dissident LGBT activists, lesbian partners in latest scandalous audience.

“Cardinal” Raymond Burke advises his followers that they not abandon the Vatican II Church, so that at least a little bit of Catholicism will remain it…

Some people are their own best parody: Where Peter Is makes the Case for ‘Woke Catholicism’.

If Crisis Magazine editor-in-chief Eric Sammons feels that he must publish every non-Catholic idea that comes to his mind, he should at least leave Sedevacantists out of it…

Feminazi Novus Ordo nun wants pro-abortion club at “Catholic” university…. If anything, she’s got a friend in Germany.

Unable to keep his mouth shut for any length of time, Bergoglio sat down with CNN Portugal for a massive interview, lest the world should remain deprived of his infinite wisdom for a day or two.

Vatican’s ‘Youth Summer Camp’ invites kids to ‘chase dreams,’ neglects Christian formation. That’s par for the course with Bergoglio.

When you make the Traditional Mass dependent on permission from Modernists, this is what you get: “Southern Maryland parish forbidden to offer traditional Latin Mass after investing in quarter million dollar renovation and decoration for the purpose.” Theology has consequences.

Hey, remember when Francis invoked the Grandma of the West in Canada? Mr. Zuhlsdorf did a little research on that. It’s always a good idea to prepare for the future, you know….

Who says Novus Ordo bishops don’t take sin seriously? German “Bp.” Rolf Lohmann: “No one doubts that repentance is necessary. And it will not work without conversion and repentance. This is precisely where the sacrament of penance comes in.” Of course he was speaking about ‘sins against the environment’. See, we need an “ecological spirituality”!

That smile, you see: Francis ‘beatifies’ Albino Luciani, “Pope” John Paul I. Every Novus Ordo pope is a saint — get it?! And this one’s got the necessary pedigree, considering he once called God a “loving mother”.

Francis invites world’s “cardinals” to Vatican blather session. “Cardinal” Walter Brandmüller is not impressed.

Come on, get yourself to church already, don’t be lazy! You’ve got to get that yoga class in….

The “Great Renewal” in the Netherlands: Not enough presbyters and high energy costs means fewer ‘Masses’ in Roermond and lifting of Sunday obligation. Understandable, but… that’s not exactly going to increase attendance, you know.

Catholic Ireland: How it startedhow it’s going.

Semi-trad lecturer Charles Coulombe doesn’t know the first thing about the Papacy — literally.

Maureen Mullarkey in The Federalist: “What [Francis] calls ‘the Gospel of Creation’ is a politicized assault on fossil fuels, industrial development, economic freedom, and private property. It is the Great Reset in cope and chasuble.” Accepting an apostate as Pope has consequences!

The Francis Effect: Michael Sean Winters opines that “themes of [Bergoglio’s] pontificate are now starting to gel”.

Clever “Cardinal” Reinhard Marx says he doesn’t want to rewrite Catholic dogma: “What we want is to ask questions, debate, and advance the discussion”. Of course the result will be the same in practice, and that’s why he’s doing it.

Jesuit historian and Vatican II admirer Fr. John O’Malley dies at 95.

Don’t be fooled by the latest Novus Ordo “Eucharistic miracle” in Mexico: “Then if any man shall say to you: Lo here is Christ, or there, do not believe him. For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect” (Matthew 24:23-24). And while we’re on the topic: Possible Miracles, Possible Deceptions.

The world’s most expensive projector screen: “For two weeks in October, the facade of St. Peter’s Basilica will be the screen for the nighttime showing of a short film about the life, the call and the ministry of St. Peter.” (Here’s a brief Vatican video on it.)

Pronouns, uniforms, bathrooms: The drama over “gender identity” in Novus Ordo schools. Here’s an idea: How about we simply “follow the science” and go by natural sex because… “born that way”? (Sex isn’t “assigned” at birth, it is simply recorded.)

Here’s a brief summary view of the apostate theology of Fr. Karl Rahner (1904-1984), one of the giants of the Vatican II religion.

Since he did such a good job the past five years: Francis re-appoints Hellboy James Martin as Vatican communications advisor. He’s got that ‘culture of encounter’ thing, you know! And he’s not afraid to say: “Thanks be to God, and happy Pride!”

For anyone tempted to wax nostalgic now for the “good old days” of John Paul II, this will bring you right back to reality.

At The Catholic Wire, Kevin Davis does a video interview with Mrs. Martha Alegría Reichmann de Valadares, widow of the Honduran Ambassador to the Holy See, regarding “the scandals she witnessed, and the scams she suffered through the Cardinal Óscar Rodríguez Maradiaga, who for a long time has been the right hand of Francis, and was supposed to be the head of one of the commissions in the Vatican in charge of the Reform.” Reichmann de Valadares is the author of Sacred Betrayals.
