Brazilian ‘Archbishop’ justifies giving ‘Communion’ to Muslim Sheik
In the Vatican II religion, Mr. Geremias Steinmetz (b. 1965) is the ‘Catholic Archbishop’ of Londrina, Brazil. Jorge Bergoglio, aka ‘Pope Francis’, personally appointed him to that position in 2017.
With the recent death of 89-year-old ‘Cardinal’ Geraldo Majella Agnelo (Aug. 26, 2023), formerly the ‘Archbishop’ of São Salvador da Bahia, Steinmetz found himself participating in a funeral ‘Mass’ presided over by ‘Cardinal’ Sérgio da Rocha on Monday, Aug. 28. (A few years back da Rocha presided over a special ‘Mass’ with a drag queen, but that’s another story.)… READ MORE
Simcha Fisher thinks sacrilege hurts only ourselves…
Novus Ordo Blogger on WYD Sacrilege:
‘You can’t hurt Jesus’
When World Youth Day took place earlier this month, we saw the usual grotesqueries, especially the storing of Novus Ordo-consecrated hosts in large plastic containers.
The conservative and trad outrage on social media about it triggered Novus Ordo blogger Simcha Fisher to pen the following piece:
In her write-up, she agrees that World Youth Day should not have had distribution of [Novus Ordo] Communion if it could not be done with the necessary decorum and respect due to the Lord.… READ MORE

Francis: Jesus Wasn’t Rigid, He Changed His Attitude!
Probably one reason why ‘Pope Francis’ (Jorge Mario Bergoglio) loves to talk so much is that it is the best way for him to change the Gospel and communicate his false doctrines. Barely a Sunday goes by on which he doesn’t use the opportunity to put his own spin on the teaching of Christ found in the Gospel reading of the day, sometimes to the point of distorting completely the message the Son of God actually transmitted.
For a long time now, one of the false pope’s favorite themes has been that of condemning “rigidity”.… READ MORE
The Vatican II religion in concrete…
Just Brutal: Saint Anna Church near Bari, Italy
It’s time again to take a look at some of the stunning architectural contributions with which the Vatican II religion has graced the world.
Today we would like to introduce our readers to the blob of concrete known as the Parish Church of St. Anna (Chiesa parrocchiale di Sant’Anna) in Monopoli, Italy, near Bari. The architect who perpetrated this aesthetic catastrophe is Nazario Losavio.
Here are some additional photos, taken from the Messa in Latino blog (some have been cropped):
Clearly the work of a Catholic trying to emphasize the supernatural, this building immediately raises one’s thoughts heavenward, doesn’t it?… READ MORE

‘Holy Communion’ for over a million people…
Behind the Scenes at World Youth Day:
Reserving the ‘Blessed Sacrament’ for the Crowds
According to reports, there were an estimated 1.5 million people in attendance at the Closing ‘Mass’ for World Youth Day in Lisbon with ‘Pope’ Francis on Aug. 6, 2023.
If a real Catholic Mass, offered by a real Pope, with that many people were ever to happen, it would be clear that Holy Communion would not be distributed, for the simple reason that it could not be done with sufficient dignity and reverence: the danger of sacrilege would be too great.… READ MORE

Lengthy conversation published in Spanish…
In new Interview, Francis rebukes Traditionalists, calls himself ‘Victim of the Holy Spirit’
Few people love to hear themselves talk more than the octogenarian apostate Jorge Bergoglio from Buenos Aires. Under his appropriated moniker ‘Pope Francis’, the stream of words that continually pours from his profane lips does immense damage to countless souls who mistakenly think this Modernist Jesuit is the Pope of the Catholic Church, the Vicar of Christ, the Father and Teacher of all Christians.
The ‘Catholic Woodstock’ event formally known as World Youth Day is currently underway, and during this time the Spain-based religious publication Vida Nueva has published a colossal new interview with the garrulous Jesuit.… READ MORE

His ‘Apostolic Journey’ of Aug. 2-6, 2023

Insane Video: ‘Encountering Christ’ at World Youth Day
Time and again we hear that one of the reasons for World Youth Day is to give the young an opportunity to ‘encounter Christ’.
This year’s ‘Catholic Woodstock’, as the secular press once nicknamed it, is being held in Lisbon, Portugal. It began on Tuesday, Aug. 1, and will conclude on Sunday, Aug. 6. Of course ‘Pope’ Francis is also scheduled to be there.
The official opening of World Youth Day yesterday took place with a Novus Ordo worship service celebrated by ‘Cardinal’ Manuel José Macário do Nascimento Clemente, who is the local patriarch there.… READ MORE

Let us Chill: ‘Catholic’ Church in Munich encourages People to Relax in Lounge Chairs around Sanctuary

In the Archdiocese of Munich and Freising, Germany, the ‘Catholic’ Church is once again trying to be incredibly relevant to contemporary, secularist man.
To that end, the Modernists currently occupying the gorgeous late 19th-century church of St. Ursula in Munich’s Schwabing borough have decided to put out some lounge chairs and beach towels right in front of the
sanctuary “worship space” so people can come to church to take a little break from the daily hustle and especially the incredible summer heat that is allegedly sweeping Europe.… READ MORE
Dangerous half-truth misleads countless souls…
Podcasting Francis tells Transgender Person:
‘God loves us as we are’
As if the world weren’t inundated with enough Bergoglian blather yet, the Vatican is now producing an Italian-language podcast with ‘Pope’ Francis (Jorge Bergoglio), inappropriately called the Popecast.
Whereas Apostatecast would be a much more fitting title, it would considerably weaken the Argentinian Jesuit’s influence, since all the de facto power Francis wields over souls lies in the fact that most people accept him for what he claims to be but in reality is not: the Sovereign Pontiff of the Roman Catholic Church.… READ MORE

Response to Christine Niles…
Sister Lucy Truth answers Church Militant:
Was the true Fatima Seer replaced with an Impostor?
For years now, the non-profit organization Sister Lucy Truth has commissioned scientific experts in various fields to determine scientifically, and not simply based on best guesses or gut feeling, whether the woman presented to the world as Sister Lucy of Fatima from 1967 until her death in 2005 is indeed the former shepherd child to whom our Lady appeared in the small Portuguese town in 1917:
What Sister Lucy Truth has been doing is the only proper way to go about resolving the mystery: by asking third-party experts, those with no dog in the fight and the proper credentials to do scientific analyses and give their professional judgment about the data at hand.… READ MORE
Louie Verrecchio hits a home run!
Is Jorge Bergoglio’s Claim to the Papacy Legitimate?
A 60-minute reality check with Louie Verrecchio…
Louie Verrecchio was once a big defender and ‘explainer’ of the Second Vatican Council (1962-65). Under the title “Harvesting the Fruit of Vatican II”, he published a “faith formation series” and used to give lectures on the “authentic teachings” of the council, in a spirit of that fabled “hermeneutic of continuity and reform”. An archived snapshot of his web site as it looked in 2011 can be accessed here.
At some point, however, Mr. Verrecchio found himself confronted with more and more evidence from the pre-Vatican II magisterium and the undeniable facts of recent Church history so that he became convinced that his “conservative Novus Ordo” position was simply unsustainable.… READ MORE
