Oops: The former “guardian of orthodoxy” is a heretic himself!

[UPDATED 27-JUN-2019: Replaced our own translation of Rahner quote with official translation published in 1966.]

In recent years it has become fashionable in conservative Novus Ordo and even semi-traditionalist circles to promote the German “Cardinal” Gerhard Ludwig Müller (b. 1947) as a conservative stalwart of Catholic doctrine, simply because he opposes adultery, women’s ordination, and a few other ultra-Modernist pet ideas. In February of this year, Müller issued what he called a Manifesto of Faith, and just last month he published an entire book that purports to be a defense of Catholicism against current errors mostly disseminated by Francis or his henchmen.

“Jesus becomes Bread”, “God contained in a Piece of Bread”: Francis’ Lutheran Corpus Christi

[UPDATE: See our Rejoinder to Dave Armstrong’s Rebuttal here]

This past Thursday was the Feast of Corpus Christi, the annual festival on the Roman calendar that celebrates the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar, the Holy Eucharist. In this sacrament, which is the literal and true Body, Blood, soul, and divinity of Jesus Christ, our Blessed Lord remains with us unto the end of time under the appearance of bread and wine. This sacrament is confected during the Holy Catholic Mass, when the priest consecrates bread and wine.

Nature Worship, Spiritism, Indigenous Liturgy:
Get ready for the Amazon Synod!

He’s ready — are you?!

If the preparatory document just released for the upcoming Amazon Synod is any indication, then the last few synods that caused chaos in the Vatican II Church were small potatoes. Communion for adulterers? Situation ethics? Sin as an imperfect participation in virtue? The youth as a privileged place of God’s revelation? You will wish to return to those topics if what’s on the Amazon Synod agenda will actually be implemented.

Officially called the Special Assembly of the Synod of Bishops for the Pan-Amazon Region, the Vatican has put up a special web site dedicated to the event:

This past Monday, June 17, the Roman Modernists released the full text of the synod’s Instrumentum Laboris, as the working document is formally called, accompanied by a press conference to introduce it.

Vatican II theology in action: Moslem call to prayer in ‘Catholic’ cathedral in Paris, France

Vatican denies rumors that Ratzinger Emeritus Benedict XVI has suffered a stroke. You know what they say: Believe nothing about the Vatican until it’s been officially denied.

The Vatican’s biggest carbon emitter, “Pope” Francis, warns: “Time is running out! …We do not have the luxury of waiting for others to step forward” to save the planet! Here we must quote the words of “Saint” John XXIII at the Vatican II opening address: “We feel we must disagree with those prophets of gloom, who are always forecasting disaster, as though the end of the world were at hand”!

What’s one more at this point…

More “Papal” Heresy:
Francis the Lutheran denies Catholic Dogma on Merit

And now, another post for your “You sedevacantists are just a bunch of Protestants!” file.

On Tuesday, June 11, the Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio graced the people unfortunate enough to be attending his daily worship service at the chapel of the Vatican’s Casa Santa Marta with yet another homily. In it, he revealed that he denies the Catholic dogma on the possibility of supernatural merit before God by the justified.

The heretical ramblings of the false pope, who goes by the stage name of Francis, were reported by the Vatican’s in-house propaganda arm, Vatican News:

Christian life, said Pope Francis, is lived gratuitously.

Response to Paul Folbrecht continued…

Peace in the Crisis?
Catholic Family News Promotes a Dangerous Tranquility
 (PART 2)

by Francis del Sarto

CONTINUED FROM PART 1

This analysis is a response to most of Part II of Paul Folbrecht’s article “Finding Peace in the Crisis” published in November 2018 in Catholic Family News. Forthcoming will be a third and final installment, which will look at the remainder of Folbrecht’s Part II along with all of Part III.

As seen in Part 1 of this rebuttal, the theme of Mr. Folbrecht’s article is yet another ill-fated attempt at a defense of the recognize-and-resist (R&R) position.

One more document should fix it…

Five Novus Ordo Prelates release “Declaration of Truths” in tacit Rebuke to Francis

“Cardinals” Burke and Pujats, “Archbishops” Peta and Lenga, “Bishop” Schneider

If it seems like you’ve seen this before, it’s because you have:

On Pentecost Monday, June 10, 2019, five high-ranking prelates of the Vatican II Church have released two documents obviously meant to challenge “Pope” Francis and be an orthodox counterpart to the latter’s persistent efforts to destroy any remnants of Catholicism in souls. The two documents are the following:

Although both documents are dated May 31, they were not released to the public until today, June 10.

Happy New Pentecost!

Some things are so absurd that it is best to leave them uncommented — photos and videos speak eloquently enough. The liturgical loony bin of Maria Geburt (Nativity of Mary) Church in Aschaffenburg, Germany, is such a case.

In 2013, the pastor of the church, Mr. Markus Krauth, published a video clip showing a “liturgical performance” for the feast of Pentecost. Few people will be able to endure this to the very end:

For those who were inspired by this profound spiritual experience, we also have a “Pentecost dance” from the same perish parish:

What you have witnessed is the perfect embodiment of the religion of the Second Vatican Council, the disastrous gathering that “Pope” John XXIII repeatedly referred to as a “new Pentecost” (see, for example, “Prayer of Pope John XXIII to the Holy Spirit for the Success of the Ecumenical Council”, in Walter Abbott, The Documents of Vatican II [New York, NY: Guild Press, 1966], p.

The Interreligious Dialogue of St. Boniface Winfrid

June 5 is the feast of St. Boniface Winfrid in the Roman calendar, an eighth-century Englishman who evangelized the Germanic peoples with such zeal and success that he is commonly known as the Apostle of Germany.

Today the so-called Catholic News Agency sent a tweet with a link to its biographical page about this great bishop and martyr, which notes:

St. Boniface was very bold in his faith, and was well known for being very good at using the local customs and culture of the day to bring people to Christ.

“Pope” Francis says he used to Preach at Presbyterian Church in Buenos Aires

Yesterday, June 2, “Pope” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) concluded his latest blather tour, which took him to the Eastern European nation of Romania. As always, he gave a press conference on the return flight to Rome, in which he made a number of outrageous and eyebrow-raising statements. Catholic News Agency has provided a full transcript in English, although one must say the translation leaves a bit to be desired:

The false pope took the opportunity to engage in some cheap 1960s’ polemics against the traditionalists in his sect — the usual “museum” talk, but this time sprinkled with “ashes”:

When I hear [Benedict XVI] speak, I become strong.

Building the City of God AND Man?
Francis and the Idolatry of Migrants

If you want to know what cause is really near and dear to “Pope” Francis’ heart, you just need to see what it is that he never shuts up about. As our Blessed Lord said: “…out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaketh” (Lk 6:45), and this is true for the fake pope Jorge Bergoglio as much as it is for anyone else.

We thus turn to Exhibit A in this regard: Francis’ perpetual solicitude for, and quasi-idolatry of, migrants.

On May 27, the Vatican released Francis’ Message for the 105th World Day of Migrants and Refugees 2019, which will be observed on September 29.

Francis says he knew “Nothing” about McCarrick — “Abp.” Viganò says he’s Lying

Today, two significant developments took place regarding the Francis-McCarrick-Viganò drama: The Mexican television station Televisa released a lengthy interview its journalist Valentina Alazraki conducted with the “Pope”, in which the Jesuit apostate declares that he had no knowledge whatsoever of the accusations of sexual misconduct against Ex-“Cardinal” Theodore McCarrick; and a former personal secretary and long-time aide to McCarrick published correspondence from his erstwhile boss showing that “Cardinals” Donald Wuerl and Pietro Parolin were very much aware of the restrictions that had been placed on McCarrick by Benedict XVI, something Wuerl first denied and then denied having deniedsort of.

Ending Cognitive Dissonance:
Another Recognize-and-Resist Blogger becomes Sedevacantist

Cognitive dissonance can be defined as “the mental discomfort (psychological stress) experienced by a person who holds two or more contradictory beliefs, ideas, or values” (Wikipedia).

On July 10, 2016, we posted the article “The Trouble with Jorge: Semi-Trads at the Breaking Point”. After providing some papal quotes on the traditional Catholic doctrine on the Magisterium and the Papacy, we observed: “The cognitive dissonance involved in perhaps professing these truths externally — as the semi-trads might very well do — while at the same time thinking, acting, and speaking in contrary fashion is beginning to push people over the edge.”

In April of the following year, we published the essay “Anything but Sedevacantism!

Bouix on the “Heretical Pope”: A big Nothingburger from John Salza and Robert Siscoe

More than three years after the release of their book True or False Pope? A Refutation of Sedevacantism and other Modern Errors, John Salza and Robert Siscoe are still busy wasting everybody’s time.

On May 14, they posted on their web site an English translation of an excerpt from the 3-volume book Tractatus de Papa, ubi et de Concilio Oecumenico (“Treatise on the Pope and the Ecumenical Council”) written by the French canonist Marie Dominique Bouix (1808-1870). Bouix took the unusual position that if a Pope as a private person were to become a heretic, he would not lose the pontificate in any way, nor could anyone take it from him.
