Francis’ Cosmic Apostasy —
New Articles by Miles Christi

Before our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ ascended into Heaven, He warned His disciples: “For there will rise up false Christs and false prophets, and they shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce (if it were possible) even the elect” (Mk 13:22). These words have presumably never been fulfilled more concretely than in the person of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the man the world knows by his stage name of “Pope Francis”.

Miles Christi (“Soldier of Christ”) is a prolific Catholic writer whose work we have featured on this web site several times before.

Does Vatican I disprove Sedevacantism?

The “Perpetual Successors” Objection

After the objection that “you guys are just a bunch of Protestants!!”, probably the most frequently-made argument against Sedevacantism is that our position contradicts the teaching of the First Vatican Council that St. Peter will have “perpetual successors”. If there hasn’t been a true Pope in decades, how then can we maintain that there is a perpetual succession of Popes?

We have addressed this argument on this site before, but a dedicated post on the issue is in order.

Our response will be twofold. We will demonstrate that (1) the objection from perpetual successors is actually based on a misunderstanding of the teaching of Vatican I; (2) even if the objection were not based on a misunderstanding, it would still not refute the sedevacantist position.

A Candid Plea: If you Benefit from this Web Site, please Help Support It

This post will have to be a bit candid because the matter is serious and there is no time to waste.

It is June 23 today and unfortunately we are not going to make ends meet for the month if the current decline in donations continues.

Our apologies, first of all, to all those among you who are current donors or have made donations in the past. You have sacrificed so much, and your continued support is so appreciated and needed. The following words are not addressed to you, they are addressed to those who have been sitting idly by and not contributed at all, figuring they’ll simply let you all carry the burden for them:

Folks, compared to the other “Catholics” out there, we sedevacantists are not many.

To avoid confrontation over Dubia?

No Culture of Encounter: Francis apparently won’t hold Pre-Consistory Meeting with “Cardinals” again

As we learned in the last few months and especially in the past 2 days, although he constantly preaches about “dialogue”, “open doors”, and a “culture of encounter” Christians must supposedly practice, when it comes to four of his own “cardinals” humbly seeking to dialogue with him about their questions concerning the exhortation Amoris Laetitia, all of a sudden the leader of the Vatican II Sect isn’t all that into encounter anymore.

On June 19, it was revealed that Francis has been ignoring the request of “Cardinals” Caffarra, Brandmuller, Meisner, and Burke for a joint audience to resolve apparent contradictions between Francis’ exhortation Amoris Laetitia and the timeless Catholic teaching and practice regarding adultery, the state of grace, and reception of the sacraments.

“We do not … consider the Chair of Peter to be vacant“!

The Dubia Saga continues:

Sandro Magister publishes “Cardinal” Caffarra’s Letter to Francis requesting Audience

[UPDATE 20-JUN-17 00:22 UTC: Edward Pentin reports that this letter was delivered to Francis on May 6 of this year.]

[UPDATE 20-JUN-17 12:54 UTC: Sandro Magister publishes commentary.]

Today the veteran Vatican journalist Sandro Magister published a bombshell on his blog, Settimo Cielo.

It had been mentioned before in the press that the four “dubia cardinals” — Carlo Caffarra, Raymond Burke, Walter Brandmuller, and Joachim Meisner — had requested an audience with “Pope” Francis to discuss with him the concerns they had voiced in their dubia” (doubts or questions) concerning the “papal” exhortation Amoris Laetitia.

There He Stands:

Francis’ Stiff Knees return for Corpus Christi

We knew it was going to be bad, we just didn’t know exactly how bad: the feast of Corpus Christi in Rome today, presided over by the world’s most notorious apostate, “Pope” Francis.

Now we know.

The Corpus Christi festivities were celebrated in Rome on a Sunday this year, a first for the Eternal City. In May, Francis had moved the observance from the traditional Thursday to Sunday because “a Sunday procession would be easier for people to attend and would also cause less inconvenience in Rome” (“Pope Francis moves Corpus Christi procession to Sunday”, Catholic Herald, May 18, 2017).

“Make friends with members of all religions!”

Guru, Rabbi, Mufti, “Pope”:
Francis joins Campaign for Pan-Religious Friendship

The so-called Elijah Interfaith Institute has launched a campaign to bring people of different religions together in order to overcome “negativity and divisions in society”. The effort has received the official endorsement and encouragement of prominent leaders of numerous religions, and of course this includes the head of the apostate Vatican II Sect, “Pope” Francis.

“The World’s Most Prominent Religious Leaders Call On Everyone To Make Friends Across Religions” is the headline currently displayed on the Institute‘s web site, followed by a summary of its interreligious friendship campaign:

On June 14, 2017 many of the world’s most prominent religious leaders made a joint statement encouraging people everywhere to make friends across religions.

Goodbye, Amoris Laetitia:

The Real Catholic Position on “Irregular Unions”

For the last 14 months we have heard words like accompaniment, integration, discernment, walking together, dialoguing, listening, etc., ad nauseam, specifically with regard to those who live in what the Novus Ordo Sect euphemistically calls “irregular unions” — in other words, people who live in adultery, in fornication, or in unnatural relationships.

After two turbulent and controversial Vatican synods on the family, which convened in 2014 and 2015, respectively, the world was anxiously awaiting “the Pope’s decisive judgment on the matter”. What was “Pope” Francis, Jorge Bergoglio, going to do?

Response to Fr. Paul Robinson

The SSPX and “Pope” Francis:
Theological Absurdistan on Full Display

 

The absurd theology of the Society of Saint Pius X is currently on full display again.

On June 8, 2017 there appeared an article entitled, “Unity of Faith with Pope Francis & Canonical Recognition of the SSPX” on the web site of the SSPX’s Asian District. The essay was written by Fr. Paul Robinson, a professor of dogmatic theology at the Lefebvrian Holy Cross Seminary in Lake Bathurst, Australia. As the article points out in an introductory comment, it is “published with permission of the SSPX’s General House in Menzingen”, which means it comes with the highest possible Lefebvrian approval, that of Superior General Bp.

Novus Ordo Watch in the Vatican

Vatican Prelate Gänswein is asked
about a Novus Ordo Watch Post

 

You’ve probably heard of him before. He is Francis’ so-called “Prefect of the Papal Household”. He is Benedict XVI’s private secretary. He is constantly around either Francis or Benedict. In other words, he’s a really important chap in Vatican City. He hails from Freiburg, Germany. His name is “Archbishop” Georg Gänswein.

Like many other celebrities, Ganswein has a fan page on Facebook. This page is not maintained by him and not endorsed by him; it is simply a page about him and maintained by two of his devotees who refer to themselves by the names of “Pinky” and “Michele”.

Damage Control: Jesuit Spokesman says Superior’s Denial of Satan was Taken out of Context


In a defense that was as predictable as it is unoriginal, a spokesman for the Superior General of the Jesuits, “Fr.” Arturo Sosa, has claimed that the chief Jesuit’s recent comments denying the existence of Satan as a real fallen angel have been — just guess! — taken out of context.

The Novus Ordo paper Catholic Herald has the story:

A spokesman for the Jesuit superior general has said his comments on the Devil must be read in context.

The superior general, Fr Arturo Sosa Abascal, told El Mundo last week: “We have formed symbolic figures such as the Devil to express evil.”

A spokesman for Fr Sosa told the Catholic Herald that the phrase “We have formed” should not be taken out of context.

A new heresy for an old heretic…

“God cannot be God without Man”!

Francis’ Latest Heresy

We’re used to always hearing the same claptrap from Chaos Frank, but on June 7, 2017 he surprised the world with a new heresy — well, it was new for him anyway: In his catechesis for the General Audience, the papal pretender made the outrageous, blasphemous, and heretical claim that God has need of man, that God cannot be God without us.

Let’s have a look at Francis’ exact words, first in the original Italian:

Cari fratelli e sorelle, non siamo mai soli.

Cool new donor incentives are here!

New Donor Gifts for June
& Fundraising Update

Friends and Supporters of Novus Ordo Watch:

Here is a quick update on our fundraising efforts for the current year. In a nutshell:

  • Donations slowed down in the month of May
  • We fell short of the average monthly amount needed by about $300
  • Due to higher donations earlier in the year, however, we are still on track to meet our annual goal of $50,000
  • The current year-to-date total raised is $24,690

You may recall that our update a month ago was a jubilant “things are going great”, but it seems that a number of people took that to mean that their support was not that crucial, hence the shortfall in May.

Thesis – Antithesis – Synthesis

Ratzinger, Hegel, and Summorum Pontificum

As we quickly approach the tenth anniversary of Summorum Pontificum, Benedict XVI’s unjustly celebrated motu proprio that supposedly “freed” the Traditional Latin Mass by permitting every presbyter of the Vatican II Sect to use the 1962 Missal for the celebration of at least private Masses, we are starting to see a number of articles in the Novus Ordo press about what has been accomplished ten years after Benedict XVI’s landmark decision.

About three months after the release of Summorum Pontificum on July 7, 2007, we published our own critical analysis of the “papal” document we have justly termed a “motu inapproprio“:

Gerard Johannes Nicolaus de Korte is the current Novus Ordo bishop occupying the diocese of ‘s Hertogenbosch (“Den Bosch” for short) in the Netherlands. The Netherlands are not exactly known as a bastion of orthodoxy, so the following story will not come as much of a surprise.
