Return of an old straw man…

On Disobeying the Pope:
Comments on a recent One Peter Five Article

“Can a Catholic Ever Disobey a Pope?” That is the question currently being asked at One Peter Five. An article by that title was posted on July 17, 2020, written by Paul Casey.

The author begins by claiming:

“No one is ever allowed to disobey the pope. Period.”

The statement is made repeatedly on social media, usually in an attempt to end a debate. It’s taken as a given. No sources cited, no documentation provided. It’s merely assumed. It is, after all, obvious.

TRADCAST Episode 028
Taylor Marshall’s Infiltration Unmasked (Part 2)

Traditional Catholic Podcast

CLICK HERE FOR MORE INFORMATION
AND TO LISTEN TO ANY EPISODE

We are happy to announce the release of our latest podcast episode, TRADCAST 028. It continues our hard-hitting critical review of Dr. Taylor R. Marshall’s best-selling book Infiltration: The Plot to Destroy the Church from Within (2019).

As we showed in Part 1 (TRADCAST 027) already, what has been marketed by the publisher as a “carefully documented book” and by the author himself as his “greatest literary accomplishment” is in actual fact little more than an embarrassingly sloppy hack job.

Utterly revolting…

Vatican “Abp.” Vincenzo Paglia retweets Picture of Naked Adults with Naked Children

Some stories are so disgusting that one absolutely detests having to blog about them. This is one of them.

This morning, the Vatican’s president of the so-called Pontifical Academy for Life, “Abp.” Vincenzo Paglia, sent a message on the social media platform Twitter that includes an image showing a nude man and a nude woman lying on the floor, surrounded by four nude little children.

The conservative Novus Ordo web site Life Site covers the story in a news article by Anthony Murdoch and Pete Baklinski:

The tweet in question did not originate with Paglia; he “merely” retweeted it and commented on it.

Salvation by Compassion?
Debunking Francis’ latest Demagoguery

Just because it’s vacation time in Rome and Vatican City doesn’t mean the Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio has nothing to say. Under his pseudonym “Pope Francis”, the Bergoglian jaw is always moving — if not physically, at least virtually.

On July 14, 2020, Francis’ digital self posted the following message on Twitter:

For those unable to see the image, the text says: “On the Day of Judgment we will not be judged for our ideas, but for the compassion we have shown to others.” The tweet can be accessed directly using this link.

“But let your speech be yea, yea: no, no…” (Mt 5:37)

Bp. Richard Williamson’s Strange Theology on the ‘New Mass’

Long-time readers of this web site may remember the outrage and exasperation the recognize-and-resist bishop Richard Williamson (b. 1940, ex-SSPX) triggered five years ago when he answered a laywoman’s question about whether it was ever permissible to assist at the Novus Ordo Missae (“New Mass”) of Paul VI. The answer the Lefebvrist bishop gave was so lengthy, convoluted, and vacillating that by the end he had said everything and its opposite, from yes to no, to maybe, to ask someone else.

Tongue-in-cheek commentary on the Vatican summer camp…

Summer Fun at the Vatican — but does Francis approve?

Fun and games at the Vatican — nothing wrong with that! Although tiny, Vatican City State is a sovereign nation that has real citizens, old and young.

For the first time ever, Vatican City is now offering summer fun to the children of Vatican employees. Rome Reports has put together a little video overview of what’s going down in the world’s smallest country this summer. Have a look:

Just recently we got a peek inside the infernal Paul VI Audience Hall, which, as mentioned in the video, has now been set up for children to have fun while the Vatican apparatus is on vacation.

Liturgical freak show in Land of Luther…

Send in the Clowns:
Liturgical Theater of the Absurd in Germany

The infamous Nativity of Mary (Maria Geburt) parish in Aschaffenburg, Germany, has done it again.

On Sunday, July 5, its pastor, Mr. Markus Krauth, uploaded three videos showing who-knows-what going on in his wreckovated church, apparently either before or during “Mass”. The spectacle is so absurd, you have to see it to believe it. Don’t speak German? Don’t worry — those who do, won’t understand what’s going on either:

In case the videos won’t play embedded in this post, you can watch them directly on YouTube here: Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3.

Melodramatic resistance manifesto…

A Brief Commentary on The Remnant‘s “Open Letter to Pope Francis”

(screenshot from Remnant video “CHURCH IN CRISIS: World’s Catholics Resist Pope to His Face”)

Just as the infamous Amazon Synod was concluding in Rome last year, the editor-in-chief of the American recognize-and-resist flagship publication The Remnant, Michael J. Matt, sat down and penned an “Open Letter to Pope Francis”. Although dated Oct. 26, 2019, it was not published until Nov. 20, 2019, together with a video version of the letter, in which a melodramatic Matt reads the text out loud:

Our most recent podcast, TRADCAST EXPRESS 113, provides an audio commentary on the Open Letter, interspersed in between soundbites of Matt’s reading of the missive.

Infernal Art and Architecture in the Vatican

The Vatican’s Hell Hall:
The Weird Mysteries of the Paul VI Audience Hall

Darkness Visible: Eerie, shrieking skull-like faces seem to peer out menacingly from the base 0f La Resurrezione, an eight ton sculpture, as “Pope” Francis speaks during an audience on November 21, 2015 at the Paul VI Audience Hall at the Vatican. It is only one of the many bizarre things associated with this auditorium. (image: Getty Images/AFP / rights-managed)

G.K. Chesterton once referred to architecture as “the most practical and the most dangerous of the arts.”

Brother of Benedict XVI

Fr. Georg Ratzinger dies in Regensburg

Fr. Georg Ratzinger, the brother of “Pope Emeritus” Benedict XVI (Joseph Ratzinger), has died at the age of 96.

Ratzinger, the former long-time director of the world-famous Regensburger Domspatzen cathedral choir, passed away in Regensburg, Germany, on July 1, 2020. This was being reported earlier today by various highly reliable news outlets, and has now been confirmed also by the Vatican:

On June 18, Benedict XVI had surprisingly left the Vatican enclave for an emergency trip to see his brother one last time, whose health had seriously deteriorated.

And now… Arabic Pentecost Chant in Germany! With some red things…

After Bergoglio: Edward Pentin releases new book, The Next Pope: The Leading Cardinal Candidates. Video of panel discussion with author here.

This may just qualify for dumbest tweet of the year: Francis says that the Sacred Heart “wants to welcome us all into the revolution of tenderness.” On second thought, this “papal” tweet is a serious contender as well

Get ready! The Vatican is inviting you to the “Season of Creation” and a year-long celebration of Laudato Si’!

Talk about being in error!

Did the Council of Florence Teach Error? A Response to Athanasius Schneider’s Attempt to Save Vatican II

No matter how one looks at it, the only way one can ever justify or excuse the abominable Second Vatican Council (1962-65) is by trashing the Catholic Church prior to the council. Mr. Athanasius Schneider, auxiliary “bishop” (why the quotes?) of the diocese of Maria Santissima in Astana, Kazakhstan, has just shown that that goes not only for open Modernists but also for some “traditionalists.”

In a newly-released text, the Kazakh prelate once again repeats his claim that there is historical precedent for the idea that a Pope can correct the errors of a prior ecumenical council.

Do You Believe in the Papacy?
Take this brief Test and Find Out!

Frequent visitors to this web site know that the topic of the Catholic Papacy is continually broached here. The reason for that is that a correct understanding of the Papacy is absolutely crucial, especially in our times, and is ironically rejected — wittingly or not — by a large majority of those who call themselves traditional Catholics, specifically by those who accept Francis and his five inglorious predecessors as true Popes but at the same time attempt to remain faithful to the religion of Pope Pius XII and the Popes before him.

No “exile” for Ratzinger after all…

Br. Alexis Bugnolo’s Narrative collapses as Benedict XVI returns to Vatican City

Another post on Benedict XVI’s trip to Germany? Yes, one more. The reason for giving this so much attention is the fact that more and more people who are sick and tired of Francis but don’t want to be sedevacantists are turning to “that fox” (Lk 13:32) Joseph Ratzinger as their alternative. This gives them the happy illusion of having a real Pope who in their minds retains some semblance of orthodoxy, especially compared to the openly apostate Jorge Bergoglio. The leading English-speaking voice among them is Brother Alexis Bugnolo.
