So inviting and edifying!
Welcome to Vienna:
‘Donau City Church’ is waiting for you!
Donau City is a part of Vienna, the capital of Austria. It means “Danube City” and was established in 1996. Home to a lot of skyscrapers with offices and apartments, it has an impressive-looking skyline.
In such hip surroundings, of course a cool, contemporary Novus Ordo church cannot be missing. This is where “Donau City Church” comes in. Actually, its proper name is Christ, Hope of the World Church, but you wouldn’t know it from looking at it, as the image above demonstrates.
Donau City Church is part of a larger parish family and belongs to the Modernist-occupied Archdiocese of Vienna, which is still being led by the quasi-Satanist ‘Cardinal’ Christoph Schönborn (b.… READ MORE
Lecture by Fr. Gabriel Lavery, CMRI
Can Catholics resist the Pope because St. Paul resisted St. Peter?
Time and again the recognize-and-resist traditionalists — those who recognize Francis as a true Pope but resist his teachings, laws, and canonizations if they judge them not to be “in line with Tradition” — invoke the incident described in the second chapter of St. Paul’s Letter to the Galatians, in which the Apostle resisted Pope St. Peter “to his face”, as supposed historical precedent and divine approval for “resisting the Pope”.
In a prior blog post, we had already explained, using solid Catholic authorities, why this argument does not hold water.… READ MORE
Conquering new spiritual heights, eh?
Getting into the Swing of Lent… literally
Lent is always a really exciting time in the Vatican II religion, at least in the churches of Germany and Austria. You just never know what you’re going to get when you step inside one of those buildings that still use the misleading label “Catholic church”.
Often the surprises and discoveries encountered in such churches are hard to put into words — they’re things one must simply see or hear to believe.
Perhaps the most bizarre spectacle ever to grace a German church was what took place on Mar.… READ MORE

To the Razor’s Edge: ‘Father’ Zuhlsdorf leads Souls into Temptation by promoting lewd Video Ad
Years ago ‘Fr.’ John Zuhlsdorf was a big name in the world of conservative Novus Ordos and so-called “indult” traditionalists, that is, those in the Vatican II Church who still took Catholicism seriously and wanted to assist at the Traditional Latin Mass in “full communion” with Joseph Ratzinger (“Pope Benedict XVI”) and later Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”).
Starting out as a columnist writing about ecclesiastical Latin for The Wanderer, ‘Father Z’, as he likes to be called, gradually morphed into a blogger whose primary occupation appeared to be, well, blogging.… READ MORE

‘Abrahamic Family House’ with Church, Mosque, and Synagogue opens in Abu Dhabi
Three cubes for a more fraternal — and less Catholic — world
The ever-advancing global apostasy has just reached another mile marker. On Feb. 16, 2023, the so-called Abrahamic Family House was solemnly inaugurated in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates.
The project comes with the full endorsement of Jorge Bergoglio, the Argentinian apostate who has been playing “Pope Francis” for nearly 10 years now in the post-Catholic Vatican. In fact, Francis is one of the instigators of this unholy endeavor, which has been called the “first fruits” of the blasphemous and heretical Document on Human Fraternity the false pope signed together with the Moslem imam Ahmad Al-Tayyib in Abu Dhabi on Feb.… READ MORE
It doesn’t look like it…
Was Bishop René Gracida Consecrated in the Traditional Rite of Ordination?
In recent days there has been plenty of online chatter regarding Bp. René Henry Gracida (b. 1923), retired ordinary of Corpus Christi, Texas. Gracida is one of only two Novus Ordo bishops, so far, to publicly reject Jorge Bergoglio‘s claim to the Papacy (the other being Jan Paweł Lenga).
In 2017, Gracida said Francis might be a false pope; in 2018, he said the Chair of St. Peter was vacant and so a new conclave would have to be held; by 2022, he had come to believe that Benedict XVI was the true Pope instead; and at this point he presumably believes again that the papal chair is vacant, since Benedict died on Dec.… READ MORE
Reality check for Taylor Marshall and Matt Gaspers…
Can Francis Ban the Latin Mass?
Sedevacantist Critique of a recent Taylor Marshall Podcast
(Part 1 of 2)
On Jan. 27, 2023, Dr. Taylor Marshall interviewed Mr. Matthew Gaspers on the topic of whether a Pope can abolish the Traditional Latin Mass of the Roman rite and replace it with a liturgical aberration such as the Novus Ordo Missae of ‘Saint’ Paul VI. Spoiler alert: Gaspers answered with a “definite no”.
While it is clear that a Pope indeed cannot promulgate something so horrendous as the false mass of Paul VI, since every true Pope is divinely protected from instituting for the entire Church evil, heretical, sacrilegious, or otherwise harmful disciplinary laws or sacramental rites (see Denz.… READ MORE
Don’t worry, ‘Pope’ Francis doesn’t either!
High-Profile Jesuit: ‘I Do Not Believe in Transubstantiation’
Catholicism just isn’t his thing: the Jesuit Modernist ‘Fr.’ Tom Reese
It is rare that a Novus Ordo Jesuit comes out and states explicitly that he does not believe in a dogma of the Faith, but it does happen on occasion.
A recent example is the American ‘Fr.’ Thomas J. Reese, S.J. (b. 1945), who was editor-in-chief of the Jesuit rag America until 2005.
In a Jan. 31 article suspiciously entitled “The Eucharist is about More than the Real Presence” — a write-up meant to contribute to the “Eucharistic revival” the Novus Ordo bishops of the United States want to bring about — Reese openly proclaims his rejection of Transubstantiation, which was defined dogmatically and infallibly at the Council of Trent in the 16th century.… READ MORE
Sermon by Fr. Bernard Uttley, O.S.B.
The End of the World vs. End Times Mania
As things get crazier and crazier in the world and especially in Novus Ordo Land, the topic of the end of the world keeps coming up as a point of interest, and not without all justification. Yet it behooves Catholics not to obsess about these matters and to guard against an undue curiosity concerning those things God has not seen fit to reveal to us except in a very vague manner.
When it comes to this topic, it is easy to fall prey to false apparitions, and some are tempted to cling to a particular interpretation of private revelation that may come at the expense of Catholic doctrine.… READ MORE

Details emerge: Bergoglio’s rumored Next Attack on the Traditional Latin Mass
The false pope is determined to protect the world from the liturgical books of 1962…
On Jan. 14, 2023, the German indult blog Summorum Pontificum reported on a credible rumor about “Pope Francis” and his liturgical henchmen preparing another, more severe set of restrictions for the use of the Roman Missal of 1962, after the implementation of Traditionis Custodes has apparently been too lackluster and too slow for the man whose real name is Jorge Bergoglio:

Against the ‘New Papacy’ of Peter Kwasniewski
[This post is a follow-up to Rethinking Peter Kwasniewski: A Sedevacantist Critique of his Anti-Papal Traditionalism.]
On Jan. 4, 2023, the American philosopher Dr. Peter Kwasniewski published an article on One Peter Five entitled “Abandoning the Church Has No Appeal for Traditionalists”, and in this post we will respond to it. By “Traditionalists” he means the people in the Vatican II Church who recognize Francis as the legitimate Pope but resist him in whatever they personally decide is “not in accordance with Tradition”.
We prefer to call such souls — many of whom are genuinely devout and good people who love our Lord beyond measure — “semi-traditionalists”, because, whether intended or not, their adherence to Catholic Tradition is partial only: For one thing, they do not admit the traditional teaching regarding the Papacy and the Church, which is irreconcilable with the idea that the public apostate Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) could be the successor of St.… READ MORE
