Vatican issues lackluster Statement on McCarrick Investigation

If this is Francis’ great response to the Vigano accusations, it cannot be taken seriously: The Vatican has just released a Bollettino with information about the former “Cardinal” Theodore McCarrick, credibly accused of sexual abuse. Here is the full text:

After the publication of the accusations regarding the conduct of Archbishop Theodore Edgar McCarrick, the Holy Father Pope Francis, aware of and concerned by the confusion that these accusations are causing in the conscience of the faithful, has established that the following be communicated:

In September 2017, the Archdiocese of New York notified the Holy See that a man had accused former Cardinal McCarrick of having abused him in the 1970s.

Francis kicks off 3-week Vatican assembly…

The Youth Synod 2018 Begins


Ready to toast some marshmallows?

The long wait is finally over: After three painful years without knowing what the god of surprises might want to reveal to Club Francis next, the latest and greatest Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops is back in session! In a last-minute showdown, the online petition circulated by The Remnant to stop the synod could not prevent the Vatican assembly from proceeding as scheduled.

On the morning of Oct. 3, 2018, Antipope Francis kicked off what is more commonly known as the “Youth Synod”, since the official theme of the three-week gathering of Modernist pseudo-bishops is “young people, the faith, and vocational discernment”.

Archdiocese of Santiago de Chile apologizes for Abuse Prevention Guidelines gone wrong

The official seal of the archbishopric of Santiago de Chile

The Novus Ordo Archdiocese of Santiago de Chile has issued an apology after publishing a 9-page manual for its clergy and other employees on proper conduct with minors and vulnerable people. The problem? Its contents caused outrage online because among its 65 do’s-and-don’ts were items such as the following:

  • don’t slap buttocks
  • don’t give massages
  • don’t touch genital areas or the chest
  • don’t sleep together with children or adolescents
  • don’t kiss children, adolescents, or vulnerable people on the mouth
  • don’t fight or play games that involve inappropriate touching
  • don’t take pictures while children, adolescents, or vulnerable people are naked, getting dressed, or showering

The document, which can be accessed in full here, is entitled Orientaciones que fomentan el Buen Trato y la Sana Convivencia Pastoral (“Guidelines for the Promotion of Good Interaction and Healthy Pastoral Coexistence”) and was signed by the “Archbishop” of Santiago de Chile, “Cardinal” Ricardo Ezzati Andrello.

Viganò Reloaded:
In new 4-Page Testimony, the “Great Accuser” Doubles Down

Just as we were preparing our post on the new bombshell report that some Vatican sources have confirmed the Vigano Testimony but with the added caveat that things are even worse than alleged, yet another major development broke in the case:

The former Vatican nuncio to the United States, “Abp.” Carlo Maria Viganò, has just released a new four-page letter in which he reasserts the truth of the accusations of his original Testimony, justifies his decision to go public, and responds to Francis’ attempts to ignore, dismiss, and defame him.

Report in theological journal…

Vatican Sources:
What Viganò says is True, except it’s Worse!

Mere days after the release of a bombshell report against “Pope” Francis by the prominent German leftist political magazine Der Spiegel, the Novus Ordo theological journal Herder Korrespondenz in its October 2018 issue is dropping another bomb into the battlefield of the sex abuse cover-up allegations against the papal pretender Jorge Bergoglio.

In an article entitled “Pontifical Secret”, author Benjamin Leven presents a well-written summary of what has transpired for Francis so far this year in terms of sexual abuse and cover-up allegations, beginning with his fateful trip to Chile in January.

Rejoinder to recent arguments…

The Limits to Invoking “Papal Lapses” as a Justification for the Recognize-and-Resist Position:

A Response to Dr. Peter Kwasniewski

by Francis del Sarto

“Lessons from Church History: A Brief Review of Papal Lapses” is an article by Dr. Peter Kwasniewski that was published on August 6, 2018, by the OnePeterFive website. An editor’s note informs the reader that it is an update of an article that first appeared in October 2015. The author is identified as “a Thomistic theologian, liturgical scholar, and choral composer…”, who has taught at Novus Ordo colleges in Austria and the United States, written six books, and is a regular contributor on “Catholic blogs”.

Actually, they’re both devils…

Francis says John Paul II is a Saint but “I am the Devil”

Francis has embarked on another blather tour, and this time the victim countries are Lithuania, Latvia, and Estonia, three small nations in Northeastern Europe that until 1991 were occupied by the Soviet Union.

After take-off early this morning, as is his custom, he greeted all the journalists aboard the “papal” plane, which we like to call Airhead One. At that time, one of the photographers handed him a gift, a book on “Saint” John Paul II (1920-2005), as pictured above. The Associated Press reports details as follows:

Greeting journalists Saturday en route to Lithuania, Francis was given a book about the former pope by Polish photographer Grzegorz Galazka.

Novus Ordo Cardinals slam Francis:
“Cold-Blooded, Cunning Machiavellian [who] Lies”, Heretic

With regard to accusations of sex abuse cover-up and stonewalling, the left-leaning mainstream press has mostly been treating “Pope” Francis with kid gloves. After all, no one has attacked Catholicism more openly and with more lasting effect than Jorge Bergoglio, and it would be a shame for the political left to have to attack one of their own and risk interrupting his work of destruction. But now it seems the honeymoon may finally be over.

The Sep. 22, 2018, edition of the German weekly Der Spiegel (“The Mirror”), pictured above, has an explosive cover story: “Thou shalt not lie: The Pope and the Catholic Church in their greatest crisis” are the words printed on the front page.

Benedict XVI: “With the Papa Emeritus I have tried to [be] completely clear that there is only one Pope”

Ever since Benedict XVI announced his resignation on Feb. 11, 2013, the Vatican has been a continually alternating hodgepodge of drama, comedy, freak show, circus, and haunted house of horrors. Not that the Vatican II Church wasn’t already clearly a blasphemous and heretical madhouse before then, but at least it had tried to give an appearance of honor, respectability, and order. At this point, it’s a laughing stock as “Pope” Francis has maneuvered himself into what can only be described as a lame-duck session of the rest of his “papacy”, where each day that passes may bring yet another scandal, confidentiality leak, or other embarrassing development.

Vienna’s “Cardinal” Schönborn reportedly conferred Blessing on Homosexual Couple

“Cardinal” Schonborn, right, with gay activist Gery Keszler, whose union he allegedly blessed

We have long said that the Archlayman of Vienna, “Cardinal” Christoph Schönborn, is one of the most wicked devils the Vatican II Sect has unleashed on its unsuspecting people. Now it is being reported that this past August, he conferred a blessing on a sodomite couple at a private gathering.

This revelation was made by Mr. Gery Keszler, a notorious Austrian sodomite and personal friend of Schonborn’s, on Sep. 4, 2018.

Everything in the Vatican II Church is false – except the “Pope”?

The Absurdity of the Recognize-and-Resist Position demonstrated in two easy-to-understand Memes

Some things are easier to grasp in simple memes than in pages upon pages of text. We have produced the following two memes to illustrate the folly of the pseudo-traditionalist “recognize-and-resist” position, according to which one must recognize the papal claimants after Pius XII as valid Popes but resist them in whatever they teach, legislate, etc., that appears to one contrary to the pre-Vatican II Magisterium.

Depsite its inherent absurdity and anti-Catholic nature, this position is very popular, perhaps because it promises “the best of both worlds”, so to speak: One gets all the comfort and convenience of having a Pope and a hierarchy, all the while being exempt from the pesky problems associated with submitting to Modernists.

The Francis Show in Palermo…

The Blessing that Wasn’t: Francis omits “Papal” Benediction because it could offend Non-Catholics

On Saturday, Sep. 15, the Francis Show made a stop in Sicily, with the “Pope” visiting the dioceses of Piazza Armerina and Palermo. As always, Francis had a lot to say, cranking out such incredible nuggets of wisdom as, “Those belonging to the mafia are not living as Christians”, and, “…those who give themselves find the meaning of life and win” (source). The Vatican web site has posted the entire program of the trip to Sicily here.

One of the highlights of this “apostolic journey” was a meeting with young people at Politeama Square in Palermo.
