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
“Through [ecumenical] martyrdom, the Church is already one”…
Vatican Prelate accidentally admits Vatican II Ecclesiology denies Unity of the Church
‘Abp.’ Fabio Fabene (b. 1959) is the Vatican’s Secretary of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints. In that role, he was interviewed recently by Rome Reports regarding Jorge Bergoglio’s recent establishment of the ‘Commission of the New Martyrs – Witnesses of the Faith’, which is “a working group at the Dicastery for the Causes of Saints to draw up a catalogue of all Christians – not only Catholics – who have shed their blood to confess Christ in the last quarter of a century” (Vatican News).… READ MORE
65 years since the release of ‘Meminisse Iuvat’…
The Last Encyclical:
Pope Pius XII and the Persecuted Church
On July 14, 1958, Pope Pius XII released the encyclical letter Meminisse Iuvat, on the Persecuted Church. It was his last encyclical and thus the last such document from a true Pope for the time being.
The full text in English is available at the Papal Encyclicals Online web site:
That the Holy Father’s final encyclical should have the Church Persecuted for its main theme proved to be providential, considering what transpired after his death, especially during and after the so-called Second Vatican Council (1962-65).… READ MORE
New interview with the false pope!
Francis denounces Burning of the Muslim Koran in Sweden
The papal impostor put on his pensive face for the interview with Al-Ittihad
The Vatican may be on its annual summer break all through July, but the Jesuit apostate Jorge Bergoglio (‘Pope Francis’) has a way of making sure he remains in the news nonetheless.
Not surprisingly, therefore, the month had barely started when yet another interview with Francis was published, this time by Al-Ittihad, a newspaper from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), on July 3:
This is the first time Bergoglio has given an interview to a publication from the UAE.… READ MORE
Says Francis lost Papacy years ago…
Rev. James Altman at Canceled Priests’ Conference:
‘Bergoglio is Not a Pope’
A 40-minute lecture given by ‘Father’ James Altman (why ‘Father’?) at the Canceled Priests’ Conference in Chicago this past June has just been released on YouTube. It is sure to make waves because, apparently for the first time ever, ‘Fr.’ Altman states in public that he believes Francis is no longer a true Pope, that he lost the Papacy years ago. We will examine this in a minute.
The so-called Coalition for Canceled Priests describes itself as “a group of committed Catholic lay people and clergy who came together in 2021 after one too many instances of persecution of holy, traditional, and orthodox priests”, with a mission “to spiritually and materially supporting faithful priests who seek to return to active ministry after being unjustly canceled by their bishops”.… READ MORE
A joyful encounter at the Casa Santa Marta…
Francis receives former U.S. President Bill Clinton
Two non-Catholic globalists greeting each other at the Vatican, July 5, 2023
The Vatican has released a brief video clip from today showing ‘Pope’ Francis receiving former U.S. president Bill Clinton (1993-2001) at the Casa Santa Marta, the Vatican guest house the Argentinian apostate has been occupying since the conclave of 2013.
Here it is:
This was evidently a rather jovial encounter, and there is no doubt that these two non-Catholics have a lot in common. (At least one of the two refrains from pretending to be a Catholic, even though he received Novus Ordo communion once.)… READ MORE
Tone-deaf new DDF prefect responds to critics…
Fernandez says his Book ‘Heal Me with Your Mouth’ was meant as a Catechesis for Teenagers!
Victor Manuel ‘Tucho’ Fernandez
The appointment of the new Prefect of the Dicastery for the Destruction of the Faith, Archlayman Victor Manuel Fernandez, has caused an uproar online among many of members of the Vatican II Church that are of a more conservative or traditionalist bent, and for good reason. Even the Modernist ‘Cardinal’ Gerhard Ludwig Müller, himself prefect of the Novus Ordo doctrine factory from 2012-17, is not thrilled with the choice.
There are various reasons to be upset, though not surprised, that Bergoglio should have selected the ghostwriter of Amoris Laetitia and other texts for the job of ‘top guardian of orthodoxy’, and they’re not all doctrinal.… READ MORE

Dicastery for the Destruction of the Faith:
Bergoglio issues Game Plan to his Doctrinal Undertaker
A hideous pectoral cross is not the only thing these two have in common: Jorge Bergoglio and ‘Tucho’ Fernandez
As surely everyone knows by now, Chaos Frank — the man otherwise known as ‘Pope’ Francis or Jorge Bergoglio — put his Argentinian buddy Victor Manuel Fernandez in charge of the Holy Office, or rather, what used to be the Holy Office and was known for the last few decades as the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and is now the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith:

TRADCAST EXPRESS to the rescue…
A Reply to Kennedy Hall’s Video ‘Why I am Not a Sedevacantist’
On May 26, 2023, the Canadian recognize-and-resist pundit, SSPX apologist, and benevolent beard expert Kennedy Hall explained in a special 20-minute YouTube video why he is not a Sedevacantist.
True to the video’s title, Hall does not argue that Sedevacantism is false, nor does he claim that one shouldn’t be a Sedevacantist, he merely explains why he isn’t one:
In the month of June, we decided to give Hall’s argumentation a fair review in the “express” edition of our podcast program, TRADCAST.… READ MORE

Francis appoints ‘Abp.’ Victor Manuel Fernandez to head Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith
Breaking news out of Rome: Another fox has been put in charge of the henhouse.
The July 1, 2023 news bulletin released by the Vatican press office announces the appointment of Victor Manuel Fernandez (b. 1962), currently the ‘Archbishop’ of La Plata, Argentina, as the new Prefect of the so-called Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith (DDF):

Luis Francisco Ladaria Ferrer, S.J., at the conclusion of his mandate as Prefect of the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the Faith and President of the Pontifical Biblical Commission and of the International Theological Commission, and has called to succeed him in the same offices His Most Reverend Excellency Archbishop Víctor Manuel Fernández, until now Archbishop of La Plata (Argentina).

‘Bishop’ Athanasius Schneider issues Statement declaring Disobedience against Traditionis Custodes to be Legitimate
He rules no flock but presumes to issue directives to the Universal Church: Athanasius Schneider
For the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul, ‘Bishop’ Athanasius Schneider (b. 1961), auxiliary of the diocese of Maria Santissima in Astana, Kazakhstan, has released a statement for publication and dissemination in semi-traditionalists quarters that presumes to effectively overrule ‘Pope’ Francis’ anti-Latin-Mass decree Traditionis Custodes, declaring those who reject it to be free from the guilt of disobedience.
Rorate Caeli is one of the blogs carrying it:
To someone who does not merely pay lip service to the Catholic understanding of the Papacy but actually adheres to it, this whole scenario appears grotesque.… READ MORE
Christ’s actual words didn’t fit his talking points…
Imagine No Hell: Francis blatantly twists Sunday Gospel Reading that warns about Eternal Damnation
Although suffering from breathing difficulties since his last surgery, this past Sunday the apostate Jorge Bergoglio from Buenos Aires — whose moniker ‘Pope Francis’ has gained him untold de facto power over souls these last ten years — managed to use whatever oxygen he could to completely strip the supernatural from the day’s Gospel reading.
In his catechetical remarks at the Angelus, he distorted the sacred text in order to neutralize Our Lord’s salutary doctrine about hell, replacing it with a generic ‘give meaning to your life’ message that has the spiritual value of a Hallmark card and is guaranteed to offend nobody.… READ MORE

Francis receives Andres Serrano, whose ‘Art’ includes Crucifix submerged in Urine
Ladies and gentlemen, this is a difficult post to write and read because the matter is so serious. It is difficult to keep one’s composure as we must report on some extremely disgusting and abominable facts.
On June 23, 2023, ‘Pope’ Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) welcomed 200 artists to the Vatican’s Sistine Chapel for a special audience. Not surprisingly, he blathered a number of inanities at them — he spoke of “eyes that dream” and “the human dimension of humanity”, for example — but that’s not the big story this time.… READ MORE

The ‘Listening Church’ Takes Shape:
Synod Working Document Released
Get ready! The ‘Listening Church’ is coming to the Vatican in October…
On June 20, 2023, the Vatican held a press conference to introduce the long-awaited Instrumentum Laboris — the ‘working document’ which the upcoming Synod on Synodality will be using as a basis for its work. Not surprisingly, the new text is already causing controversy. But first, let’s back up for a moment.
The Vatican’s process for the Synod on Synodality, begun in 2021 and scheduled to conclude in 2024, has been a gigantic bureaucratic effort.… READ MORE
Yet SSPX accepts Novus Ordo priests without re-ordination…
SSPX Priest: ‘My Conviction is that Novus Ordo Priests are Not Validly Ordained’
Fr. Michael Johnson, SSPX, on June 18, 2023
Although Our Lady Help of Christians Church in Garden Grove, California, does not officially belong to the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), priests of the Society currently take care of priestly duties there.
This past Sunday, June 18, 2023, Fr. Michael Johnson, SSPX, offered Mass at Our Lady Help of Christians and gave a sermon in which he briefly mentioned that it is his personal conviction that priestly ordinations in the 1968 Roman rite of Paul VI (“Novus Ordo” ordinations) are invalid.… READ MORE
