See, we told you so…
Francis makes it clear: By Proselytism he means CONVERTING people and that’s wrong!
For the last 10 years or so, Novus Ordo apologists have been bending over backwards trying to defend Jorge Bergoglio’s constant condemnation of “proselytism”. He doesn’t mean convincing people of the true Faith, much less converting them, we were told. Rather, he means pressuring people to convert, using deceptive means to convert them, bullying them into conversion, threatening them with damnation if they don’t convert.
We told you from the very beginning that that is definitely not what Francis means, and this is evident from the context in which he speaks, from the other things he has said, from his general refusal to seek the conversion of anyone, from his lowest common denominator ecumenism, and from the fact that virtually no one in the Novus Ordo Church pressures or bullies anyone into conversion anyway, so where is the need for these relentless tirades against a phantom problem?… READ MORE

The Peripheries’ Revenge: Bergoglio appoints Jorge García Cuerva ‘Archbishop’ of Buenos Aires
This past Friday, May 26, 2023, the big Vatican news story was that Jorge Mario Bergoglio (‘Pope’ Francis) had canceled the day’s appointments due to a fever. It was also reported that Telemundo had just published an interview with Francis, in which the talkative Argentinian apostate once again graced the globe with his infinite wisdom.
But then there was another big news story, one that did not receive immediate attention.
In the day’s Bollettino, the daily news bulletin of the Vatican press office, came the announcement that Francis had appointed a new ‘archbishop’ of Buenos Aires, his own former diocese.… READ MORE

No Snickering! ‘Bishop’ of Auckland wears Candy Bar Wreath at the Altar
Please suppress any urge to snicker at this. What you see above is a snapshot of 60-year-old ‘Bishop’ Stephen Marmion Lowe of Auckland, New Zealand, in the most solemn act of worship of the Most Holy Trinity that the Vatican II religion has to offer — the ‘New Mass’ of Paul VI. They supposedly believe it to be “the fount and apex of the whole Christian life” (Dogmatic Constitution Lumen Gentium, n. 11).
The fact that ‘Bp.’ Lowe is wearing a wreath of Snickers bars may seem odd, but in Polynesia, of which New Zealand is considered a part, this is a common tradition.… READ MORE

The Strange Crucifix of Rio de Janeiro:
What did Francis really kiss?
(image source: Instagram)
When ‘Pope’ Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) embarked on his very first trip outside of Italy, the destination was Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. The occasion was World Youth Day (July 22-29, 2013).
In case you don’t recall anything about it, here are some aids to jog your memory: It was there, at the “Pope-acabana”, that Francis unleashed his order: ¡Hagan lío! (“Make a mess!”). It was there that Novus Ordo bishops danced a “flash mob for the Pope”. It was there that ‘Holy Communion’ was distributed from disposable plastic cups.… READ MORE

Five SSPX Myths Debunked? Novus Ordo Watch Answers Kennedy Hall on the Catholic Family Podcast
Host Kevin Davis and guest Mario Derksen react to a recent video by Kennedy Hall defending the SSPX
On May 11, 2023, Mr. Kennedy Hall published a 25-minute video defending the Society of Saint Pius X (FSSPX or SSPX) against five common objections, namely: (a) Abp. Marcel Lefebvre was automatically excommunicated when he consecrated bishops without a papal mandate on June 30, 1988; (b) the SSPX is schismatic; (c) Abp. Lefebvre said the New Mass; (d) Francis’s suppression of the Traditional Latin Mass is the SSPX’s fault; (e) although the excommunications against the four living SSPX bishops were lifted in 2009, Abp.… READ MORE

Non-Catholic ‘Martyrs’: Francis adds 21 murdered Copts as ‘Saints’ to Roman Martyrology
An icon of the 21 Coptic Orthodox who were murdered by ISIS terrorists in 2015 (created by Tony Rezk)
If you blinked, you probably missed it: Jorge Bergoglio, the Modernist apostate from Buenos Aires who has occupied the Vatican for over a decade now under the stage name ‘Pope Francis’, has just declared 21 non-Catholic (Coptic Orthodox) ‘martyrs’ to be added to the Roman martyrology, which is the official list of martyrs accepted by and venerated in the Latin Church.
Even the Novus Ordo press recognizes that this is a big deal: “A ‘bolt out of the blue’: Pope Francis sets off an ecumenical earthquake”, The Catholic World Report writes; “Unpacking how history changed … with recognition of Coptic martyrs”, Crux explains.… READ MORE

SSPX Superior deconstructs Bergoglio’s Synod Theology
On May 12, 2023, the official news site of the Lefebvrist Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) published an insightful interview with Fr. Davide Pagliarani, the Society’s Superior General:
Back in March, ‘Pope’ Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) celebrated his 10-year anniversary of usurping the Chair of St. Peter. Father Pagliarani, who as a Lefebvrist acknowledges Francis to be a true Pope (Vicar of Christ) but refuses him submission as he deems appropriate, was asked to identify what in his estimation is “is the most significant point of these last few years”, and his response was: synodality.… READ MORE

Francis to Hungarian Jesuits: Wanting to go back to pre-Vatican II days is ‘Nostalgic Disease’
‘Pope’ Francis likes nothing better than to share with the world his infinite wisdom on just about anything, especially when it comes to replacing Roman Catholicism with the latest novelties of the “god of surprises”.
Thus, when the Argentinian pseudo-pope embarked on his umpteenth ‘Apostolic Journey’ this past April 28, this time to Hungary, it was clear he would meet with his Jesuit confreres there for a little question-and-answer session, because that has become the custom on his trips. The scheduled get-together took place on Saturday, Apr.… READ MORE

Three Interviews with Three New Sedevacantist Bishops
Real Roman Catholic episcopal consecrations are somewhat rare of an occurrence, but they do happen on occasion. In the last few years, we have had more of them than usual.
On Sep. 29, 2021, Bp. Daniel Dolan consecrated Bp. Rodrigo da Silva for Latin America (video here), who in turn, after Bp. Dolan’s sudden death on Apr. 26, 2022, consecrated Bp. Charles McGuire to succeed Bp. Dolan on May 18, 2022 (video).
On Nov. 30, 2022, Bp. Donald Sanborn consecrated Bp. Germán Fliess to have a bishop who will engage in overseas travel as needed (video).… READ MORE

The Infallibility of the Catholic Church in her Universal Laws and Sacramental Rites
In his 1943 encyclical letter on the Mystical Body of Christ, Pope Pius XII (r. 1939-1958) clarified that the Roman Catholic Church, although made up of human beings who are sinners, is nevertheless perfectly holy in those things that pertain to her divine constitution and the fulfillment of her mission — that of teaching, governing, and sanctifying souls so that they may attain the Beatific Vision. As “the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth” (1 Tim 3:15), our Lord’s is thus “a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle, or any such thing; but … holy, and without blemish” (Eph 5:27).… READ MORE

In Memory of Patrick Henry Omlor
(June 13, 1931 – May 2, 2013)
Ten years ago today saw the passing of Mr. Patrick Henry Omlor, one of the earliest pioneers of Traditional Catholicism in the 1960s. A Texan by birth, Mr. Omlor died peacefully in Perth, Australia, quite appropriately on the feast of St. Athanasius, May 2, 2013. Like the great bishop, confessor, and doctor St. Athanasius, Mr. Omlor was not afraid to stand up for the true and perennial Catholic Faith at a time when the Vatican II Church was just beginning to take shape, eclipsing the true Catholic Church with its Modernist teachings and false new sacramental rites.… READ MORE
