Rated Z: Rev. John Zuhlsdorf recommends Movie with Nudity and Profanity
On Jan. 14, 2022, the blogging “traditional Catholic” presbyter John Zuhlsdorf — known by his moniker “Father Z” — informed his readership that he had just watched “an interesting movie” that he thinks “could be a metaphor for what is going on in the Church”. The film is called Don’t Look Up (2021) and falls into the genre of satirical science fiction.
What’s the problem? The problem is that the 138-minute motion picture is really not something permissible for a Catholic to watch, as we will discuss shortly.… READ MORE

Francis Unhinged: Word of God leads us to Man, Caring for Others more important than Religious Ceremony
“And he opened his mouth unto blasphemies against God” (Apoc 13:6):
The Jesuit apostate and false pope Jorge Bergoglio
This past Sunday, Jan. 23, 2022, the Novus Ordo Church celebrated “Sunday of the Word of God” for its Third Sunday in Ordinary Time (in the traditional Roman calendar, it was the Third Sunday after the Epiphany). The feast was instituted only recently by “Pope” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) himself, with the motu proprio letter Aperuit Illis of Sep. 30, 2019.… READ MORE

Why You’re Not Novus Ordo Anymore:
A “Eucharistic Celebration” instead of the Holy Sacrifice
It is an open secret that the authorities of the Vatican II Church struggle with the fact that fewer and fewer of their members still bother to show up at church on Sundays, and that many of them even abandon their pseudo-Catholic religion altogether.
In fact, as The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this month, the “Catholic” Church is now “losing Latin America”. What might account for such a devastating decline in “practicing Catholics”?
The answer is obvious, staring everyone in the face.… READ MORE
Giacomo della Chiesa died 100 years ago today
Centenary of the Death of Pope Benedict XV (1914-1922)
It was at 6:00 am local time, exactly 100 years ago today, that His Holiness Pope Benedict XV breathed his last. January 22, 1922, was a Sunday.
After almost seven-and-a-half years, Benedict’s pontificate was over. The Pope’s death was not sudden but had announced itself, as it were, a few days in advance. Tragically, there had been some premature reports of the Pope’s passing, but on Jan. 22, the official confirmation came from the Vatican.
The following are clips of some newspaper title pages of Jan.… READ MORE

Francis’ Selective Use of the Concept of Moral Obligation
Discovers moral obligations only when useful to him: The false pope Jorge Bergoglio
It is well known that “Pope” Francis’ 2016 exhortation Amoris Laetitia is far removed from any notion of moral obligation with regard to the sexual purity demanded by God in the Sixth and Ninth Commandments.
In the controversial document, the false pope, whose real name is Jorge Bergoglio, goes so far as to introduce a subjective morality (based on personal conscience) to replace the objective demands of traditional Catholic morality.… READ MORE

Report: Vatican preparing Decree on Ecclesia Dei Institutes to be released in March
The French newspaper La Croix has released a report with more information about the future of the Traditional Latin Mass in the Vatican II Church.
Entitled “How Pope Francis sees Church Traditionalists”, it was written by their Vatican-based correspondent Loup Besmond de Senneville and was published in French yesterday, Jan. 17, 2022. An English translation was released today for the international edition:
Although not an “official” Novus Ordo newspaper, La Croix is very much affiliated with the Vatican II Church and is owned by Bayard Presse, which in turn is owned by the Augustinians of the Assumption.… READ MORE

Beyond heresy: The Modernist Jorge Bergoglio masquerades as Pope of the Catholic Church
It’s that time of the year again when Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope” Francis) receives a delegation of Finnish Protestants so they can blather about walking on the ecumenical journey together.
Vatican News reports on today’s extremely spiritual encounter here, and the video site Rome Reports has put together the following summary:
This ecumenical “pilgrimage” always takes place in January, around the time of the so-called “Week of Prayer for Christian Unity”, which is an ecumenicized version of the traditional Catholic “Chair of Unity Octave”, which was approved by Pope St.… READ MORE

Still Lost in Blunderland: Refuting Peter Kwasniewski’s Latest Specious Attack on Ultramontanism
by Francis del Sarto
CONTINUED FROM PART 2…
A Brief Review
In PART ONE of this article, we saw how Dr. Peter Kwasniewski discusses Ultramontanism and the Papacy using a strangely un-Catholic approach to the topic. His use of a secular encyclopedia rather than a Catholic theological reference work for his starting point was a telling and, surely, a totally calculated move on his part to help him discredit Ultramontanism. The real traditional Catholic position is at direct odds with his imaginary renderings of theology and Church history.… READ MORE

Church of the Squashed Mushroom?
St. James the Apostle Parish in Ferrara, Italy
Don’t be deceived: The outside of the church is the pretty part!
It’s time again for one of those “ugly Novus Ordo church building” posts. Thanks to the “Great Renewal” of the Vatican II Sect, there is a sheer endless supply of material.
Today we shall look at the parish of St. James the Apostle (San Giacomo Apostolo) in the Archdiocese of Ferrara-Comacchio, Italy. The diocese is currently led by Archlayman Gian Carlo Perego, chosen for this role by “Pope” Francis in 2017.… READ MORE

Scratch That: How Salza & Siscoe misrepresent Fr. Laymann in their Crusade against Sedevacantism
For an article against Sedevacantism, John Salza omits crucial words from a canonist he quotes
The Austrian Jesuit Fr. Paul Laymann (1574-1635) was a renowned moral theologian and canonist in post-Reformation Europe. He was also the confessor of the Holy Roman Emperor Ferdinand II.
In their 2015 book True or False Pope? Refuting Sedevacantism and other Modern Errors, Messrs. John Salza and Robert Siscoe quote Fr. Laymann in support of their claims against Sedevacantism. In 2016, they made an article available on their web site presenting their argument against Sedevacantism from Fr.… READ MORE
Surprise: no surprise!
On Epiphany, Bergoglio hijacks Three Magi to slam Traditional Mass, push Surprise Theology
Today the Catholic Church celebrates the Feast of the Epiphany (Theophany), which commemorates the manifestation of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles with the arrival of the Three Kings (Magi) at the crib of the Infant Savior.
For Jorge Bergoglio, S.J., (“Pope Francis”) this was another opportunity to inculcate his ideological talking points into unsuspecting souls, and that is exactly what we saw in the sermon he gave today during the Novus Ordo worship service at St. Peter’s Basilica:

“The Lord is Good and Will Save Everyone”
No one makes Catholicism more irrelevant than him: The Argentinian Modernist Jorge Bergoglio, S.J.
After almost nine years of the continuing “Pope Francis” charade, we all know that its chief protagonist, the Jesuit apostate Jorge Bergoglio, blathers incessantly. If you blink, chances are you will miss something he said.
Ordinarily, that wouldn’t be a bad thing, considering the pseudo-spiritual tripe that usually gushes forth from his lips. However, when you’re trying to keep up with the heresies, blasphemies, and other errors or impieties Bergoglio cranks out, missing a beat is risky business.… READ MORE

15 Videos on Why You Should Be a Sedevacantist
Dear traditionalists in the Vatican II Church: Francis has canceled you. Isn’t it time you canceled him?
For year’s end, we want to provide a convenient post that lists 15 of the most important and most compelling videos we have promoted on this web site over the years that make the case for Sedevacantism in one way or another. Some are long, some are short; some are more riveting, others more dry — but all of them are well worth your time.
Here they are, in no particular order:

‘Twas the night before Christmas…
A Novus Ordo Christmas Eve in Chicago – in Full Communion with Blase Cupich!
If you are a member of the Vatican II Church who lives in the Archdiocese of Chicago and on Christmas Eve wanted to render worship to the Most Holy Trinity “in full communion” with Archlayman Blase Cupich and his boss, Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope” Francis), one of your options was the “Faith Community of Saint Sabina” with the screeching social justice presbyter “Fr.” Michael Pfleger.
There are no words to describe what went on there — it’s the kind of thing you have to see to believe (the show begins about 11 minutes into the video):
This celebration, by the way, is one instance of what Francis calls the “unique expression of the lex orandi [law of prayer] of the Roman Rite” in his motu inapproprio letter Traditionis Custodes (Art.… READ MORE
