The little-known Encyclical ‘Quartus Supra’…
Pope Pius IX’s Syllabus of LEFEBVRIST Errors (1873)
On January 6, 1873, the magnificent Pope Pius IX published the encyclical letter Quartus Supra. It is addressed to “Our Venerable Brothers Anthony Peter IX, Patriarch of Cilicia, and the Archbishops, Bishops, Clergy and Laity, Our Beloved Children of the Armenian Rite Who are in Loving Communion with the Apostolic See.”
This beautiful magisterial text concerns the threat of an emerging schism in the Armenian church and refutes the specious argumentation brought forward by those trying to justify their disobedience while still claiming to be loyal subjects of the Pope.… READ MORE
Parody of Vatican II declaration ‘Nostra Aetate’…
If Vatican II had published a Document on the Devil, this is how it would read…
Probably the most shocking of all the 16 documents of the bogus Second Vatican Council (1962-65) is its “Declaration on the Relation of the Church to Non-Christian Religions”. Taken from the first words of the original Latin text, it bears the title Nostra Aetate, which basically means “in our age” or “in our time”.
Although the declaration is uncharacteristically short, it contains frightful errors and ambiguities evidently at odds with the pre-conciliar Catholic magisterium. Among them is the claim that “in Hinduism, men contemplate the divine mystery and express it through an inexhaustible abundance of myths and through searching philosophical inquiry.… READ MORE

Francis warns: Don’t Commit the “Sin of Going Backwards”!
In an interview book published in French on Sep. 6, 2017, the Jesuit apostate Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) told the journalist Dominique Wolton: “The least serious sins are the sins of the flesh.”
No doubt that came as a great relief to a world that is enslaved by sins against the Sixth and Ninth Commandments. Although our Blessed Lord taught that even a lustful gaze is already a violation of God’s law (see Mt 5:27-28), and Our Lady of Fatima said that the primary reason souls go to hell is the sins of the flesh, the man who falsely claims to be the Pope of the Catholic Church is not terribly worried about such sins.… READ MORE

False Forgiveness: Bergoglio promotes Feelings-Based Theology in Sermon for Divine Mercy Sunday
In the Roman rite of the Catholic Church, the first Sunday after Easter is traditionally known as Low Sunday, White Sunday, or Quasimodo Sunday. This year, it fell on April 24.
In the Vatican II Sect, it has been known as “Divine Mercy Sunday” since 2000 on account of the suspect and dangerous Divine Mercy devotion that was allegedly revealed to Sister Faustina Kowalska (1905-1938). Although it was condemned in 1959 along with pictures and writings promoting it, the devotion was later rehabilitated and promoted especially by “Pope” John Paul II, who “canonized” Sr.… READ MORE

Francis to Vatican Ecumenists: Catholics need Protestants!
Seated in a wheelchair, Francis speaks on May 6, 2022
These are tough times for Catholic Answers and Novus Ordo apologists in general, because the utter theological rubbish that constantly emanates from the apostate mouth of Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) simply defies belief.
A great example is found in the speech the false pope gave to the participants at the plenary meeting for the so-called Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity this past Friday.
The full text has been released by the Vatican in both English and the original Italian, and it is loaded with fireworks:
This address came on the heels of another incredible statement the pseudo-pope made to the Eastern Orthodox patriarch of Moscow recently, namely: “We are Shepherds of the Same Holy Flock of God”.… READ MORE

In Message to ‘LGBTQ Catholics’,
Francis confirms Aberrosexuals in their ‘Identity’
On May 1, 2022, the Jesuit hellboy Rev. James Martin launched a new web site called “Outreach”. It is to serve as a resource for so-called “LGBTQ Catholics”, where each letter in the acronym stands for a different kind of sexual aberration. It’s the alphabetical version of the perverts’ rainbow, one might say.
As the adherents of this infernal ideology seek to gain social acceptance for ever more perversions, the alphabet string increases accordingly, which is why what started out as LGBT has since expanded to at least LGBTQi+ and who knows what else at this point — this is not the type of thing you want to look up.… READ MORE
Vatican II ecclesiology in action…
Francis to Russian Orthodox Patriarch:
“We are Shepherds of the Same Holy Flock of God”
Over the last 9+ years of his fake pontificate, the papal pretender Jorge Bergoglio has given interviews too numerous to count. We must be somwhere in the 60+ range at this point, and that is especially ironic since in 2013 he was known, based on his own testimony, as “a Pope who does not want to give interviews…” (source).
The latest conversation with Francis was published on May 3, 2022, by the Italian Corriere della Sera newspaper. Online, Vatican News also reported on it.… READ MORE

The Heights of Absurdity:
Rock-Climbing Wall installed in Vienna Cathedral
The Archlayman of Vienna, “Cardinal” Christoph Schönborn, has once again found a way to defile the Cathedral of St. Stephen and hold it up to the mockery of the world.
Although this time it wasn’t a homosexual prayer service, a flamboyant rock play, or a fundraising gala featuring the sodomite lobby that disgraced the sacred place, nonetheless the scandalous false shepherd once again managed to pull off an entirely farcical and unworthy spectacle in this temple originally consecrated to the worship of the Most Holy Trinity.… READ MORE

In view of the increasing popularity of the idea that Benedict XVI is “still” the Pope (and Francis’ election was invalid), the first segment begins with a look at the Modernism of Joseph Ratzinger, illustrated by his strange ideas on original sin, which are not compatible with the perennial Catholic doctrine on the matter.… READ MORE
Fr. Felix Cappello, S.J., on a hot-button issue…
Distinguished Pre-Vatican II Theologian:
A Heretical Pope is Impossible
The Jesuit Fr. Felix Cappello (1879-1962) was an outstanding theologian of the Catholic Church. He held doctorates in Sacred Theology, philosophy, and canon law. He taught at the Pontifical Gregorian University from 1920 to 1959 and served as a Vatican advisor.
In 1911/12, Fr. Cappello’s 2-volume work De Curia Romana (“On the Roman Curia”) was published. Volume 2 deals specifically with the Roman Curia during a time when there is no Pope, the state of sede vacante. It contains a treatment of the question of the “heretical Pope” (Papa haereticus) and whether the Church has the power to depose him.… READ MORE

Caution! Bergoglio gives spiritual advice…
Francis twists the Gospel:
“The Lord is not looking for perfect Christians”
For his Regina Caeli address on this first Sunday after Easter today, on which the Gospel of doubting Apostle St. Thomas (Jn 20:19-31) is read, the Jesuit apostate Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) had plenty to say, and some of it wasn’t pretty.
Seeking an ally for his Faith-wrecking ideology in St. Thomas, the false pope proposed the idea that it’s perfectly alright to doubt the truth of God:

We too struggle at times like that disciple [St. Thomas]: how can we believe that Jesus is risen, that he accompanies us and is the Lord of our life without having seen him, without having touched him?
The first fruits of Vatican II…
Behold the “New American Catholic” of 1968
Fr. William Nerin (1926-2020) presides over a liturgical travesty
In the last post, we saw that Paul VI himself came up with the expression “Conciliar Church” in March of 1966 to describe the ecclesial monstrosity his Second Vatican Council had created.
In the present post, we will look at some of the first fruits, so to speak, of that New Church in the United States.
In June of 1968, the American TV channel NBC aired a 50-minute documentary entitled The New American Catholic, and it shows how unrecognizable this new “Catholic Church” was less than 10 years after Pope Pius XII had died.… READ MORE

It is often thought that the first appearance of the term “Conciliar Church” was in 1976, when “Archbishop” (later “Cardinal”) Giovanni Benelli, then the Vatican’s Substitute Secretary of State, wrote in a letter to Abp. Marcel Lefebvre, founder of the traditionalist Society of St. Pius X (SSPX):
