Interview with Austrian newspaper

New SSPX Superior: ‘We are Deeply Distraught by this Pope’

The Dec. 15, 2018 edition of the Austrian newspaper Salzburger Nachrichten contains a brief, half-page interview with the new Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), Fr. Davide Pagliarani, who succeeded Bp. Bernard Fellay as head of the Lefebvrists this past summer.

The conversation, which was conducted by Josef Bruckmoser, was published on the paper’s web site (digital subscription required), and an English translation was released on the SSPX’s news portal, where it can be accessed in full for free:

The headline given by the SSPX for its translation is not that which Salzburger Nachrichten gave to the exchange, which is a slightly adapted version (but still fair representation) of what Fr.

An important message from the “Pope”…

Francis: “The Earth must be treated with Tenderness”

If someone were trying to make sure that the Papacy will forever be perceived as the butt of all jokes among men, he could not do a better job than Jorge Bergoglio, the Argentinian apostate who styles himself “Pope Francis.”

The headlines about the “Pope” that emerge from the Vatican II Sect these days are anything from bizarre to ridiculous to downright idiotic. Latest case in point: Today’s report on Zenit“‘The Earth Must Be Treated With Tenderness,’ Says Pope Francis”. One really has to wonder whether the poor journalists who have to cover this poppycock are secretly snickering behind their computer screens or whether they actually take this bunk seriously.

“No Rupture with the Past” Update…

When Novus Ordos build a Church…

Source: youtube.com (Diözese Rottenburg-Stuttgart; screenshot)

One of the most annoying Novus Ordo hymns in the United States is “Sing a New Church”, the lyrics to which were created by Sr. Delores Dufner, OSB. If your ears will tolerate it, this train wreck of a church song can be listened to here. That Dufner has since received a Lutheran award comes as no real surprise.

But while there are those who try to sing a new church into being, others get busy actually building one.

The most recent case in point: St.

With the authorization of the Novus Ordo authorities:
Sacrilegious light show projected onto Basilica of Santa Maria Sopra Minerva, Rome, in late October

An investigative report by a Honduran news site claims to have confirmation that “Cardinal” Oscar Maradiaga’s auxiliary “bishop” Juan Pineda Fasquelle “embezzled approximately 1.2 million USD of government money destined for poor parishes and spent the money on a lavish lifestyle for himself and his homosexual lovers.” Ah yes, the “poor church for the poor.” So far, they’re only working on the “poor church” part.

Shocking, stunning, explosive testimony: James Grein, who says ex-“Cardinal” Theodore McCarrick abused him for 18 years, tells (almost) all in video interview with Taylor Marshall.

Improvement from last year, but…

Made of Sand: Vatican’s New Nativity Scene Unveiled

You may recall that last year the Vatican’s Christmas nativity scene was basically a harrowing homo-erotic horror show. Compared to that, virtually anything is an improvement.

This year, the powers that be in the Modernist Unholy See are presenting a nativity scene made entirely of sand, sculpted by the professional team of Rich Varano, right in St. Peter’s Square. The unveiling and inauguration took place today, and Vatican News has released a video of the entire ceremony:

In case you don’t care to watch the entire 75-minute video, Rome Reports has summarized the event in a brief clip:

The core of this year’s nativity scene, pictured at the top of this post, is odd.

Why those troubles do point to Sedevacantism…

Peter Kwasniewski and “the Troubles of this Pontificate”:
A Sedevacantist Reply

As of late, more and more Novus Ordo and semi-trad publications have felt the need to write something about — that is, something againstSedevacantism. That’s a good sign, since it shows that the truth about the nature of the Vatican II Sect and its anti-Catholic hierarchy is making inroads like never before. Were it not so, the Novus Ordo pundits and commentators would not give this issue the time of day.

And no wonder: Never since the Modernists took over the Vatican in 1958 has the chaos been greater than today under the man who styles himself “Pope Francis” — Jorge Bergoglio — a mere layman, an Argentine Jesuit without even so much as a valid diaconate ordination.

“Cardinal” Schönborn hosts Flamboyant Rock Play in Cathedral Sanctuary

December 1 is World AIDS Day, and for the Chief Modernist in Vienna that means it’s time to desecrate the Cathedral of St. Stephen again.

Last year, the Austrian capital’s “Cardinal-Archbishop” Christoph Schönborn used the beautiful and historic cathedral as a venue for an interconfessional prayer service he co-hosted with a blasphemous transvestite. What was officially labeled Mozart Requiem was de facto a massive “gay pride” promo celebrating Sodom and Gomorrah.

This year, Schönborn found another way to profane St. Stephen’s Cathedral: He invited a rock ensemble to perform a flamboyant play called Jedermann (reloaded) — “Everyman (reloaded)”.

Substantial error on Barnhardt’s part…

Benedict XVI’s Mysterious Resignation:
A Reply to Ann Barnhardt

On Nov. 17, 2018, the colorful blogger Ann Barnhardt, a Resignationist since 2016, released a video presentation in which she tries to convince her audience that “Pope” Benedict XVI’s resignation in 2013 was invalid because he is, so she argues, in “substantial error” about the Papacy, and substantial error renders a resignation invalid according to Canon 188 of the 1983 Novus Ordo Code of Canon Law (this same law is also found in the 1917 Catholic Code of Canon Law; see Canon 185). Ergo, Barnhardt reasons, the resignation was not valid and Benedict XVI is the Pope, albeit, so she says, the worst Pope in history.

New Ratzinger article published…

Benedict XVI: No Mission to the Jews, just Dialogue

Instead of remaining silently retreated in his little safe house in Vatican City, “hidden from the world”, as he had initially promised, Fr. Joseph Ratzinger — a.k.a. “Pope Emeritus” Benedict XVI — has once again inserted himself into the world of theological discourse. Although he speaks with much greater finesse and academic credibility than his boorish successor, the blasphemies he utters differ at best in degree, not in kind.

The German theological journal Herder Korrespondenz just released its December 2018 edition. On the cover, pictured above, we see Benedict XVI next to the words Die Entgegnung — “The Rejoinder” — because in this issue the retired “Pope” responds to those who had blasted him for an essay published in the July/August 2018 issue of Communio, wherein Ratzinger had dared to assert that “[t]he [Novus Ordo] formula of the ‘never-revoked covenant’ [between God and the Jews] may have been helpful in a first stage of the new dialogue between Jews and Christians, but it is not adequate in the long run to express the magnitude of the reality in a way that is passably appropriate” (source; our translation).

The return of Resignationism…

Antonio Socci rocks Vatican with New Book:
“The Secret of Benedict XVI: Why he is still Pope”

After over five-and-a-half years of the antics of Jorge Bergoglio as “Pope Francis”, many Novus Ordos and semi-traditionalists simply cannot take it anymore and are starting to look for ways to rid themselves of Francis, yet while still trying to avoid the Sedevacantist conclusion. Thus we are witnessing once again the “anything but Sedevacantism” dogma being put into practice.

A few years ago we had already seen a few people embrace the phenomenon we have nicknamed “Resignationism” (see all our posts on the topic here) — the idea that Benedict XVI’s resignation in 2013 was invalid and he is therefore “still” Pope — but it was not accepted by most.

Bergoglio and Anti-Clericalism

Investigating the charge of “Clericalism”…

Bergoglio and Anti-Clericalism:

Why has Francis appropriated Rhetoric derived from Virulent Enemies of the Catholic Church?

by Francis del Sarto

“I believe the Lord wants a change in the Church. I have said many times that a perversion of the Church today is clericalism”, declared “Pope” Francis in a private meeting with 28 of his fellow Novus Ordo Jesuits during his visit to Lithuania. “I know that the Lord wants the Council to make headway in the Church” (source).

And many, indeed, have been the instances where Francis has invoked the specter of “clericalism”, dating back as far as his 2013 social justice warrior manifesto — er, “apostolic exhortation” — Evangelii Gaudium, where he pushed the Vatican II “people of God” nonsense, complaining that

[l]ay people are, put simply, the vast majority of the people of God.

Before Francis, there was Benedict…

Ratzinger’s Roman Apostasy Symbolism

At a time when “Pope Emeritus” Benedict XVI is once again held in the highest esteem by countless people who are fed up with “Pope” Francis, a little reality check is in order lest we forget that few individuals are more personally responsible for the near-total collapse of Catholicism in our day than the former Joseph Ratzinger.

In 2006, a German publisher released a 48-page booklet entitled Ratzingers römische Apostasie-Symbolik, written by Dr. Wigand Siebel (1929-2014) and Dr. Carl Angermayr. In 2007, the work was translated into English as Ratzinger’s Roman Apostasy Symbolism, and it is this translation Novus Ordo Watch is now excited to make widely available in electronic format, entirely free of charge, with the permission of the translator.

Novus Ordo priest punished for “heresy and schism”…

Francis Critic “Fr.” Alessandro Minutella declared Excommunicated

The Archlayman of Palermo has announced that one of the Novus Ordo priests in his diocese, the 45-year-old “Fr.” Alessandro Minutella, has excommunicated himself for the crimes of heresy and schism. The statement put out by the Archdiocese of Palermo to that effect was quickly reported on Vatican News and in English reads as follows:

On November 13, 2018, Father Alessandro Maria Minutella was notified of the Decree of August 15, 2018 (Prot. No. 046/18) by which the Archbishop Corrado Lorefice DECLARES the excommunications latae sententiae, which the same priest has incurred for the crime of heresy and for the crime of schism, as required by canon law (cf.

Novus Ordo Altar in Italy features 120 Severed Heads

The Vatican II Church has done it again, this time in Italy. La Repubblica reports on a new Novus Ordo altar that is a real head-turner — pun intended. Not much comment is required. We’ll let the pictures speak for themselves:

This piece of macabre sacrilege was unveiled this past Sunday, Nov. 11, at the Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta in Gallarate near Milan. The La Repubblica report says that this travesty of an altar was designed by Claudio Parmiggiani and has generated heated controversy, with some Novus Ordos even calling it “satanic.”

The basilica’s “Monsignor” Ivano Valagussa has dismissed concerns over how people, especially children, will react to this offensive and disturbing “artwork”: “Art needs time and listening”, he assures the gullible.

Missing the Forest for the Trees:

The Remnant on Schism and Sedevacantism

The pseudo-traditionalist flagship publication The Remnant has once again graced the world with the full depth of its theological wisdom. This biweekly American newspaper promotes what is perhaps best called a “pop traditionalism”, a distortion of traditional Catholicism that emphasizes certain popular elements or emotionally satisfying aspects — such as the Latin Mass, traditional practices, and rejection of whacky Novus Ordo ideas — but without any commitment to (or even regard for) sound Catholic theology, knowledge of which would have to be acquired through laborious effort and might lead to undesirable consequences.
