Novus Ordo Watch for your ears…
Bergoglio and the ‘Huonderful’ Sacraments of the SSPX
TRADCAST 035 now available
TRADCAST — The Traditional Catholic Podcast
In case you missed our initial announcement on May 10: 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 — not excluding an occasional relieving touch of humor, so necessary in our chaotic and bizarre times.
The first segment of TRADCAST 035 begins with a detailed discussion of the recent controversy regarding the holy oils consecrated by ‘Bishop’ Vitus Huonder at the Society of St. Pius X’s Chrism Mass in Zaitzkofen, Germany, on Holy Thursday. The problem concerns the (in)validity of Huonder’s own ordination as a bishop in 2007, something explained in the second part of the podcast. If Huonder is not a certainly valid bishop, the holy oils cannot be considered validly consecrated, yet in Germany at least the SSPX will be using them. Properly consecrated oils are necessary for the valid administration of the sacraments of confirmation and extreme unction. The matter is therefore quite serious. Without needless polemics, we simply investigate Catholic teaching and draw a reasonable conclusion. After that discussion, we do some penance and subject ourselves to some of the latest crazy and scandalous things said by ‘Pope’ Francis — straight “from the Jorge’s mouth”.
The second portion of TRADCAST 035 covers some news stories you may have missed. Did you know that water creates “sublime communion with God”? No? Then you must not have been reading Vatican News. We also touch upon the last blessing given at a Novus Ordo Mass in Colombia — by a Jewish rabbi. We then switch gears again and give an easy-to-follow overview of why traditional Catholic sacramental theology shows the Novus Ordo rite of episcopal consecration, promulgated by ‘Pope’ Paul VI in 1968, to be so defective in its essential form that it cannot safely be considered valid.
If you are new to this program, you will find that listening to TRADCAST is like drinking from a firehose of information. As always, the podcast is interlaced with interesting and important insights, powerful quotes from solid Catholic sources, and amusing moments of levity! The total run time of TRADCAST 035 is 1 hour and 14 minutes.
