The Fanciful Theology of Fr. Gregory Hesse (1953-2006):
Some Worthwhile Observations
The Austrian ‘Fr.’ Gregorius D. Hesse (1953-2006) was a one-of-a-kind recognize-and-resist traditionalist from Vienna. Somehow he always managed to sound convincing while he dished out unconventional theological ideas that were usually quite unique to him. He and his devoted cheerleaders considered his theology to be exemplary ‘traditional Catholicism’, of course, and his fan base ate it up (recent case in point: Kennedy Hall).
Although Hesse was popular with many Lefebvrists and SSPX-leaning trads, it is also true that not everyone in that camp appreciated his often extreme positions or the manner in which he defended them.… READ MORE

Chicken Dance for Communion!
Insane Carnival’s ‘Mass’ in German Novus Ordo Parish
Here’s something new for your ever-increasing “You can’t make this stuff up!” folder of Novus Ordo absurdities.
Not only was it one of those infamous ‘carnival masses’ that are routinely carried out in parts of Germany and Austria during this time of the year, it even included a ridiculous Chicken Dance performance the entire congregation was encouraged to participate in — during ‘Communion’ time, no less!
The following 30-second video clip has been on Facebook for a few days now, but we didn’t want to share it until we were able to confirm that this took place indeed at a Novus Ordo church in full communion with ‘Pope’ Francis and his Vatican II Sect (and not at an Anglican, ‘Old Catholic’, or Protestant service, for example).… READ MORE

“It’s Nonsense”: German Novus Ordo Priest Brazenly Denies Virgin Birth Dogma in Public Interview
The social activist ‘worker priest’ Franz Meurer is pastor of a parish in Cologne
‘Father’ Franz Meurer (b. 1951) is a Novus Ordo priest in Cologne, Germany, in good standing with his archdiocese, which is headed by the supposedly conservative ‘Cardinal’ Rainer Maria Woelki.
Known for his social activism and care for the poor, Meurer has been the pastor of the hideous St. Theodore’s church in the city’s Vingst district since 1992. As can be seen here, the church, newly-built in the early 1990s, has all the architectural charm of a sewage treatment plant.… READ MORE

The Immoral Pope Benedict IX:
Response to a Recent One Peter Five Article
He may have been a moral reprobate, but he was nevertheless a true Vicar of Christ
The pseudo-traditionalist web site One Peter Five has been on a ferocious campaign against the Papacy for years.
Always promoting a conclusion that is still in search of a good argument, One Peter Five under the editorship of Timothy S. Flanders has been cranking out, with foolhardy determination, all kinds of propaganda material that ultimately only has one chief purpose: to uphold Jorge Bergoglio (‘Pope Francis’) as a true Pope, no matter how badly the Catholic teaching on the Papacy must be distorted in order to accomplish the desired result.… READ MORE

Francis Says Homo Couples Are
‘Two People Who Love Each Other’
Bergoglio’s mug graces the cover of Credere magazine (Feb. 8, 2024 edition)
The Vatican’s chief anti-Catholic agitator has given another interview to the press.
We are speaking of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, of course, the Jesuit from Buenos Aires who has been squatting in the Vatican guest house under his stage name ‘Pope Francis’ since 2013.
At one point in the increasingly-distant past, a ‘papal’ interview was considered a spectacular and almost unique event. Now they’re a dime a dozen, as Bergoglio cranks them out faster than people can digest them.… READ MORE

Ecumenical Fools’ Mass in Switzerland
It is the time for carnival again, at least in some parts of the world, and no one does carnival quite like the Vatican II Church.
In German-speaking countries, for example, people can find so-called ‘Carnival Masses’ (or ‘Fools’ Masses’) in churches affiliated with the pseudo-Catholic sect during the days preceding Ash Wednesday.
We have reported on such evils many times in the past, but this year there has been one deserving of an especially dishonorable mention: The abomination that just took place in the Church of Saints Peter and Paul in Willisau, Switzerland, on Sunday, Feb.… READ MORE

‘Popesplaining’ Gone Wrong:
‘Pope’ Francis Rains on Michael Lofton’s Parade
Right: Mr. Michael Lofton, Th.D. candidate and owner of expensive books
As we duly reported on this blog on Jan. 25, 2024, the Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby — himself a mere layman on account of the general invalidity of Anglican orders — offered an invalid Mass (‘Eucharistic liturgy’) at the Catholic Basilica of St. Bartholomew in Rome, and he did so with the permission of ‘Pope’ Francis (Jorge Bergoglio):
The nullity (invalidity) of Anglican orders was declared by Pope Leo XIII in his 1896 bull Apostolicae Curae.… READ MORE
