Further information will be provided as soon as possible.”

Francis: ‘If I see the Gospel in a Sociological Way only, Yes, I am Communist, and so too is Jesus’
Sometimes ‘Pope’ Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) says outrageous things that go under, simply because he says and does so many other outrageous things that one cannot read or process everything in due time.
Thus it is that we must turn once again to the interview Francis gave to journalists affiliated with the Jesuit rag America, which was published Nov. 28:

On Christmas Day, Dec. 25, 2022, the Sant’Egidio Community of Rome celebrated its 40th annual Christmas luncheon inside the Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere.
Vatican News reports excitedly:

Approximately 300 of Rome’s poor, homeless, and elderly people, as well as several Ukrainian refugees, attended the traditional Christmas luncheon organized by the Community of St. Egidio in Rome’s St. Mary in Trastevere Church.
After a countdown and Christmas greetings, guests were treated to generous portions of lasagna, meatloaf, lentils, and typical Christmas desserts.
‘Merry Christmas’ from Bergoglio!
Francis claims Virgin Mary had Labor Pains, undermines Catholic Dogma
Year after year, the Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) gives his annual Christmas address to the Roman Curia, just a few days before the great feast of the Nativity of our Lord. On the same day, he also delivers Christmas greetings to the employees of Vatican City. It is in that address that he dropped a quasi-heretical and blasphemous bombshell today.
The main focus of his brief remarks to Vatican workers was that he wished them serenity for Christmas, a serenity as that experienced by the Holy Family.… READ MORE
Wrapping up 2022…
Year-End Giving 2022 and THANK YOU!
It is hard to believe, but yet another year has passed, a year in which Jorge Bergoglio has shifted the apostasy of the Vatican II religion further into overdrive.
In 2022, we published (so far) 140 blog posts, 20 express podcasts, and 3 full-length podcasts. Countless hours were spent reading, researching, writing, recording, arguing — simply creating content. On top of that, we also corresponded with countless individuals who had contacted Novus Ordo Watch for help or further information, although, unfortunately, not always in a timely fashion.
You helped make it all possible.… READ MORE

Podcast: The Rev. Frank Pavone Defrocking Drama
The news that broke this past Saturday, Dec. 17, regarding the Rev. Frank Pavone having been removed from the [Novus Ordo] priesthood by ‘Pope’ Francis, has developed into a drama that will probably be with us for a while.
Our initial blog post, since revised with countless updates, can be accessed here:
Although one’s gut reaction upon first hearing this news may be to assume that the usual suspects in the Vatican are simply trying to delegitimize an outspoken opponent of abortion, it quickly becomes apparent that there is more to this story than meets the eye at first.… READ MORE

Francis’ Message for World Day of Peace Fails to Surprise
Bergoglio showing his joyful gaze to Canadians on July 26, 2022
On January 1 of every year, the Novus Ordo religion celebrates the World Day of Peace. It was instituted by “Pope” Paul VI in 1967 and first observed in 1968. A “papal” message has been accompanying it ever since, and it is always dated Dec. 8 of the prior year and released shortly thereafter.
So too this time around. In fact, the Vatican held a press conference to introduce the message, which is directed at “all men and women of good will”, not only at Catholics.… READ MORE
Totally edifying, no?
Welcome to ‘Garnet Chapel’ in Austria
Nothing expresses the new religion of Vatican II better than the bizarre “sacred” art and architecture that have accompanied it. On this blog, we occasionally feature some of the worst examples in that regard.
Today we would like to showcase the so-called “Garnet Chapel” (Granatkapelle) in Tyrol, Austria. It was constructed in 2013, the year Jorge Bergoglio became “Pope Francis”. Not that there is any kind of connection there, but it does fit, since the chapel is built in the shape of what is called a “rhombic dodecahedron”, and Francis is a big fan of polyhedrons, at least philosophically (see ‘Apostolic Exhortation’ Evangelii Gaudium, n.… READ MORE

Francis commemorates ‘World Mountain Day’
The Jesuit apostate Jorge Bergoglio — “Pope” Francis — has found yet another thing for man to worry about that will distract him from the salvation of his soul. This time around, the false pope drew everyone’s attention to the importance of caring for mountains.
He did this as part of his Angelus remarks of Dec. 11, 2022. Before he got to that, however, he first once again blasphemed St. John the Baptist, as he had done numerous times in the past, accusing him of doubting that Jesus of Nazareth was truly the Messias.… READ MORE
Another day, another heresy…
Francis again misleads, claims Baptism makes us ‘Children of God Forever’
Today is the great feast of the Immaculate Conception of the Blessed Virgin Mary, a holy day celebrated even in the Vatican II Church.
In keeping with the custom, Francis gave an Angelus address today; and no, he did not deny the dogma defined by Pope Pius IX (see Denz. 1641) but in fact affirmed it quite clearly.
That is not to say, however, that he didn’t promote some other heresy — not with regard to the Bl. Virgin Mary (he has done that on other occasions), but on one of the effects of the sacrament of baptism.… READ MORE

Kosher Frank: ‘Pope’ Francis blows the Jewish Shofar, gives World Jewish Congress an Office in Vatican City
A shofar is the horn of an animal, usually a ram, that is used as a wind instrument. It has its origins in the Old Testament, going back as far as the book of Exodus: “When the trumpet shall begin to sound, then let them go up into the mount” (Ex 19:13b).
The shofar is used for religious purposes only. In our day, sounding the shofar is chiefly associated with apostate Judaism, where the musical horn is used for many different reasons, as explained in their religious texts such as the Kabbalah and the Talmud.… READ MORE

Brazilian Novus Ordo Priest ‘Excommunicated’ for becoming Sedevacantist, receiving Ordination
This time it was valid: Fr. Leonardo Holtz after his ordination by Bp. Rodrigo da Silva
News broke the other day that ‘Cardinal’ Orani João Tempesta (b. 1950), who is the Novus Ordo Archbishop of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, has declared one of his former presbyters excommunicated (from the ‘Conciliar’ Church).
The happy soul in question is Fr. Leonardo Holtz Peixoto, who, having become a sedevacantist and rejected the Second Vatican Council (1962-65), was properly ordained a Catholic priest by Bp. Rodrigo da Silva on Nov.… READ MORE
Chapel of ‘Saint’ John Paul II inaugurated at Madrid Cathedral
The Cathedral of Saint Mary the Royal of La Almudena is the official seat of the Novus Ordo archdiocese of Madrid, Spain. Originally designed in the 19th century as a Roman Catholic cathedral in gorgeous Gothic revival style, the sacred edifice was given a baroque exterior beginning in 1950. Construction was not completed until 1993, when the the papal imposter Bp. Karol Wojtyla (“St.” John Paul II) consecrated it for use by the Vatican II religion.
To honor the incredibly holy John Paul II’s involvement with Madrid, having visited the Spanish capital in 1982, 1993, and 2003, a chapel dedicated to the Koran kisser has been built inside the cathedral.… READ MORE
