Vatican issues COVID Injection Commemorative Coin
It is no secret that Vatican City is currently strapped for cash. Indeed, even a “poor church for the poor”, which the Argentinian Jesuit Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) has been promoting, has its price.
Just a few days ago, on Aug. 3, 2022, the Italian-language Vatican watch blog Silere Non Possum reported that in order to alleviate the Vatican’s financial woes a bit, ice-cream is now being sold in the courtyard of the Basilica of Saint Mary Major in Rome. What makes the whole matter worse is that the courtyard is fenced in and can only be accessed through the church.… READ MORE
False pope suddenly opposes paganism!
Francis warns: Traditionalism is ‘Paganism of Thought’!
Chief Talking Bull is determined to protect you from paganism!
What do you know!
During his Native American apology tour through Canada last month, “Pope” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) veritably “bathed” in paganism. In fact, he even took part in a demonic smudging ritual, at which a sorcerer “ask[ed] the western grandmother to give us access to the sacred circle of spirits so they can be with us….” Nevertheless, when he met with his Jesuit confreres less than two days later and the question turned to Roman Catholic traditionalism, the Argentinian pseudo-pope suddenly discovered a disdain for paganism.… READ MORE

Response to an Inquiring Writer at One Peter Five
On July 23, 2020, an article appeared on the One Peter Five web site that is addressed to sedevacantists:
The piece was written by Mr. Nishant Xavier, and it represents a reasonable and evidence-based challenge to the sedevacantist position. This is unusual for One Peter Five, which in the past (and also since then) has revealed itself to be a theological comedy site more than anything.… READ MORE

Bergoglio breaks the Semi-Trads: Is the Fence-Sitting coming to an End?
Good news, everyone: It seems more and more semi-traditionalists are finally at the breaking point with Jorge Bergoglio. His recent apology tour for indigenous Canadians seems to have put some people over the edge. During this trip, the man otherwise known by his stage name, “Pope Francis”, did not just unload heaps of the expected ideological blather, he also participated in a pagan smudge ceremony petitioning the “western grandmother” for “access to the sacred circle of spirits”.
At this point, even Taylor Marshall has had enough: “I’m at a loss.… READ MORE

For ‘Access to the Sacred Circle of Spirits’: Francis participates in Native American Smudge Ceremony
His hand on his heart: Antipope Francis follows the instructions of the Native American “sage” Raymond Gros-Louis
Under his pseudonym “Pope Francis”, the Jesuit apostate Jorge Bergoglio is currently on an extended “apology tour” for Native Americans in Canada.
On his first full day in the land first evangelized by Jesuit missionaries in the 17th century, this past Monday, July 25, Bergoglio attended an indigenous “healing dance” performed for “Mother Earth”, the nature goddess which the false pope himself also adores or venerates. … READ MORE

Novus Ordo “Mass” in the Ocean
— with Air Mattress Altar
Paul VI’s Novus Ordo Missae, the “New Mass” of the Vatican II Church, is the gift that keeps on giving.
While Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) is currently making an apology tour through Canada, even donning a Native American headdress and getting smudged by the indigenous, an Italian news site is reporting on a “Mass at Sea” in which an air mattress was used as an altar.… READ MORE

Caution! This is a Novus Ordo cringe compilation…
Francis has an important message to Buddhists: “Jesus and Buddha knew the need to overcome the ego”. What he didn’t mention: Only One of the two also provided the spiritual means necessary to accomplish that (and no, “double belonging” won’t work).
So they can’t figure out why no one is taking their Vatican II church seriously, huh?
In this year’s message for the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, Bergoglio wants you to practice an “ecological spirituality” in the “great cathedral of creation” lest the “song of creation” continue to be accompanied by a “chorus of cries of anguish” of “our sister, mother earth”.… READ MORE

The Essence of Christianity according to Bergoglio
On Tuesday, July 19, 2022, the Jesuit apostate running Vatican City (Jorge Bergoglio, aka “Pope Francis”) tried to impress the world by publishing a tweet concerning the “essence” of Christianity.
It is amazing that a man who detests Scholasticism as much as he does even knows what the notion of essence is. Or does he?
Fr. Bernard Wullener’s Dictionary of Scholastic Philosophy defines the concept of essence as follows: “what a thing is; the internal principles whereby a thing is what it is and has its specific perfections; quiddity; internal constitution of a thing” (p.… READ MORE

On those ‘Spiritual Dangers’ of Sedevacantism:
A Reply to Eric Sammons
It is evident that, as of late, Sedevacantism has been on the minds of many “semi-traditionalists” (our moniker for those who take a “recognize-the-Pope-as-valid-but-resist-his-bad-teachings-and-laws” approach to the current situation), and it is easy to see why. Sedevacantism is the elephant in the room that is staring everyone in the face, while the “Francis papacy” forces the old recognize-and-resist narrative to collapse like a house of cards under the weight of its own ever more obvious absurdity.
Thus it is not surprising that we have recently seen a truckload of anti-sedevacantist material being pumped out on various semi-trad web sites, among which is an article by Eric Sammons that warns readers to beware of the “spiritual dangers” that are supposedly found in Sedevacantism:
Frequent readers of this blog may remember that we have vehemently criticized Sammons in the past, taking him to task for his truly appalling theology:

Apostate Francis Interviewer Eugenio Scalfari is Dead
(image credit: Quirinale.it)
Italian journalist Eugenio Scalfari has died at the age of 98 in Rome. This is being reported by the Associated Press and by Vatican News:
In case the name doesn’t ring a bell, Scalfari was the founder and editor (1976-1996) of the left-leaning Italian paper La Repubblica, the only newspaper Francis says he reads. Baptized a Catholic, Scalfari subsequently lost the Faith and became an apostate.… READ MORE

Francis on Biden’s Extreme Abortion Support:
“I leave it to his Conscience and that he speaks to his Bishop”!
Since late June, there has been a flurry of wide-ranging interviews with “Pope” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio), lest your summer should be calm and peaceful and, worst of all, Bergoglio-free.
The latest one is the fourth in quick succession, and was conducted and released by the Mexican-American TelevisaUnivision. In the United States it aired yesterday, July 11, on Univision.
The entire conversation, conducted in Bergoglio’s native language, Spanish, lasted two hours, and it underscores once more that the apostate from Buenos Aires likes nothing more than to hear himself talk, offering his infinite wisdom to this poor world.… READ MORE

Jorge Bergoglio and the “Art” of Celebrating the Novus Ordo Liturgy

On June 29, 2022, the Jesuit apostate Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) issued a so-called Apostolic Letter, entitled Desiderio Desideravi. The title is taken from the holy Words of our Lord Jesus Christ at the beginning of the Last Supper: “With desire I have desired to eat this pasch with you, before I suffer” (Lk 22:15).
The subject matter with which this letter concerns itself is that of the Sacred Liturgy, or, in Vatican II speak: “on the liturgical formation of the People of God”.… READ MORE

Today we would like to introduce you to a gem of Brutalist architecture, the famed church associated with St. John’s Abbey in Collegeville, Minnesota.
The architect who committed this eyesore is Marcel Breuer (1902-81), who is also responsible for St. Francis de Sales church in Norton Shores, Michigan.
Design and construction of this church began in the 1950s, so one can see how deeply the spirit of Modernism and the subsequent Vatican II religion was alive and well during that time.… READ MORE

From Stern Condemnation to Enthusiastic Approval
The Second Vatican Council in session (image: manhai/Flickr/CC BY 2.0; cropped)
The Second Vatican Council (1962-65) is the Modernist robber synod that was presided over by Angelo Roncalli (“Pope John XXIII”) and Giovanni Battista Montini (“Pope Paul VI”) to usher in the new religion that has since replaced Catholicism not only in the Vatican but also in all dioceses and religious orders under its jurisdiction.
To this very day there are still people who claim that the documents released by this fateful assembly, typically abbreviated as “Vatican II”, do not represent a genuine rupture in Catholic doctrine compared to the prior magisterium of 1,900 years.… READ MORE
