Lefebvrist leadership misleads souls again…

Better to be Wrong with the Pope – or Right with Tradition against Him?

Response to a recent SSPX Article

On March 10, the official news and communications web site of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), founded by Abp. Marcel Lefebvre in 1970, posted a brief article entitled, “Is It Preferable to Be Wrong with the Pope or to Be Right with Tradition against Him?” Predictably, what they offered as argumentation in support of their position is nothing short of a theological disaster.

Let’s go ahead and dissect their little propaganda piece:

This is an objection that is often made to “Tradition”: a Catholic must be in complete union with the pope.

Support Novus Ordo Watch this Lent – and get rewarded!

Friends and Supporters of Novus Ordo Watch:

It’s Lent – the season of penance, fasting, sacrifice, almsgiving, and overall spiritual housecleaning.

Last year we were able to get by with just a single special fundraiser, and that was a relief for everyone because it allowed us to focus on doing the work of exposing and refuting the Vatican II Sect while helping souls discover real Catholicism, rather than spending time conducting fundraisers. In addition, it allowed readers of this web site to benefit from the copious free content without constantly being pestered for money.

Fool me once, shame on you…

Francis lies to Athanasius Schneider, tells him he meant God wills Diversity of Religions merely Permissively

Is that a Masonic handshake? Just asking…

Last Friday, Mar. 1, it was time again for the quinquennial ad limina visit of the Novus Ordo bishops of Kazakhstan and Central Asia. Canon Law stipulates that diocesan bishops report in person to the Pope every five years to inform him of the state of their dioceses and discuss any problems and concerns with him (see Canons 340-342 of the Catholic 1917 Code; Canons 399-400 of the Novus Ordo 1983 Code).

Francis blasphemes, says Catholic Church has been “Caught in Flagrant Adultery”

Today Jorge Bergoglio — the Jesuit apostate currently pretending to be the Pope of the Catholic Church — met with the clergy of Rome at the Archbasilica of St. John Lateran. As always, he had plenty to say.

The full text of his remarks has not yet been made available in English, but the Italian original is available here. [UPDATE 11-MAR-2019: Complete English translation now released.] A report on the meeting in English can be found at Vatican Insider, but the entire talk is not of interest.

Explosive new book just published…

Counterfeit Catholicism:
The Inside Story of the Second Vatican Council

[UPDATE 27-MAY-2019: We have now posted a sizable review of this book.]

We are happy to announce the release of a massive new study of the Second Vatican Council (1962-65) that includes its history, its making-of, its main players, its errors, and its disastrous consequences: Two sedevacantist priests — Fr. Francisco Radecki and Fr. Dominic Radecki — have just published an 809-page work telling the inside story of the apostate robber synod that has brought about an unprecedented loss of Faith.

Seven years in the making, Vatican II Exposed as Counterfeit Catholicism was exhaustively researched employing all available primary documents.

Bp. Williamson: Two New SSPX Bishops to be consecrated on April 28 — with Mandate from Francis

In a video-recorded sermon given on Quinquagesima Sunday, Mar. 3, 2019, the former SSPX bishop Richard Williamson announced that the Society of St. Pius X will consecrate two new bishops on the First Sunday after Easter, Apr. 28. He identifies one of the new bishops-to-be as Fr. Christian Bouchacourt and notes that the main consecrator will be “Bp.” Vitus Huonder of Chur, Switzerland, who is expected to have his resignation approved by “Pope” Francis by Apr. 21, when he turns 77.

The answer may surprise you…

Do Catholics have to Assent to Non-Infallible Church Teaching?

On Dec. 31, 1930, Pope Pius XI issued his landmark encyclical Casti Connubii on Christian marriage. In it, the Holy Father reminded Catholics that it is not permissible to prefer one’s own judgment over that of the Church on matters of Faith and morals. A Catholic is not allowed to accept from the Church only what seems correct to him, nor can he decide to withhold his assent from teaching that is not presented infallibly:

Wherefore, let the faithful also be on their guard against the overrated independence of private judgment and that false autonomy of human reason.

Would God permit a Non-Catholic Pope?
Response to Peter Kwasniewski

As we’ve pointed out before, Dr. Peter Kwasniewski, a former college theology professor now working as a freelance writer and lecturer, has become one of the preferred go-to guys for the semi-trads and conservative Novus Ordos when it comes to making the case for accepting Francis as Pope but refusing to accept practically anything he believes or teaches. Never mind supplying evidence for such a silly and absurd position — what counts is only the reiteration of the desired pre-conceived conclusion that it be so.

Truth does not exist in elements…

Dissecting a Misleading Expression:
The Catholic Church and the “Fullness of Truth”

You’ve heard it numerous times: “The Catholic Church has the fullness of truth.” It is a very popular slogan among “conservative” Novus Ordo adherents, and even many Traditional Catholics unwittingly use it. Yet, this adage, though not incorrect if interpreted strictly, is actually favorable to heresy, specifically the heresy of Modernism. This explains why it is an expression that only began to be used with the advent of the Modernist Vatican II religion and was virtually unknown among Catholics before the 1960s.

So, what is the problem?

Courageous Reporter asks Vatican Press Panel about Francis’ Cover-Up of Zanchetta Case

Inés San Martín questions “Abp.” Charles Scicluna on Feb. 24, 2019

Some light fireworks could be seen today at the final press conference wrapping up the sex abuse summit in the Vatican that had begun on Feb. 21.

As is customary, the press panel took questions from journalists in the audience after its presentations, and the last one came from Inés San Martín, who is the Rome Bureau Chief for the mainstream Novus Ordo news site Crux. Herself from Buenos Aires, Argentina, San Martin is for that reason somewhat connected to the current pretend-pope, but this did not keep her from asking the following explosive question, clearly embarrassing to Francis and to the other Vatican authorities.

Comedy Hour at Vatican Abuse Summit: Homosexuality isn’t “Something that really Predisposes to Sin”

The Vatican is currently in the midst of a turbulent four-day summit on sexual abuse. The conference gathers the highest-ranking prelates from every nation to try to find some kind of a solution to its ongoing scandals involving the sexual abuse of minors. Although there has also been abuse of so-called “vulnerable adults”, especially seminarians, the Vatican has seen fit not to address that at the current time, contrary to its original announcement.

Yesterday, Feb. 21, “Pope” Francis opened the conference with a list of 21 points for “reflection”.

Response to “Are They Really Bishops? (3)”:
The Cardinal Gasparri Argument

Finally, we come to the third and last installment of the Rev. John Hunwicke’s argumentation on the 1968 rite of episcopal ordination. There the formerly Anglican Englishman delivers what he must believe to be the deathblow to our position, the coup de grâce that represents the culmination of all the theological prowess he has deigned to share with us unworthy ones on this topic.

Heretic approves heretic…

“Cardinal” Müller in new Interview:
“This Pope is Orthodox”

Bad news for those who have been putting all their hopes in “Cardinal” Gerhard Ludwig Müller and saw in his recent Manifesto of Faith a covert accusation of heresy against “Pope” Francis. In a new interview released in the German secular magazine Der Spiegel last week, Muller was asked point-blank whether he believes Francis is a heretic. His answer was not really surprising.

Here is the relevant excerpt from the text:

Spiegel: Is Pope Francis a heretic, a denier of dogma, as some few princes of the Church insinuate?

Former Novus Ordo Cardinal returned to Lay State

This hasn’t happened to the former “Cardinal” Theodore McCarrick since the 1950’s: His official address is now Mister again. Ordained a priest on May 31, 1958, the disgraced sex abuser Theodore McCarrick will remain “a priest for ever according to the order of Melchisedech” (Ps 109:4); however, the Novus Ordo authorities are no longer allowing him to exercise this priesthood that was indelibly imprinted on his soul on the day of his ordination. For all intents and purposes, therefore, he is a layman again.

Moral Advice from “Pope” Francis:
“The Least Serious Sins are the Sins of the Flesh”

On Sep. 6, 2017, the French sociologist Dominique Wolton, himself an agnostic, released an interview book with “Pope” Francis entitled Pape François: Politique et Société (“Pope Francis: Politics and Society”). It is in this book that Francis revealed for the first time that he used to get treated by a Jewish psychoanalyst in Argentina. We reported on the matter here.

The book has since been translated into English and is now available as A Future of Faith: The Path of Change in Politics and Society.
