Still Lost in Blunderland: Refuting Peter Kwasniewski’s Latest Specious Attack on Ultramontanism

(PART THREE)

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

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:

Jesuit Jojo has a Pantheist message for you: Everyone and everything is divine!

After Traditionis Custodes with its Responsa ad Dubia: Vatican said to be preparing visitations for Fraternity of St. Peter, Institute of Christ the King, and Institute of the Good Shepherd to be carried out in February; “papal delegates” may be appointed to oversee existing superiors. And of course contemplative life, too, is on the chopping block. This is one of those times when the “pastors” don’t care to “listen to the flock”….

More aggiornamento, please! “Cardinal” Michael Czerny says the Novus Ordo Church needs to finally get serious about embracing Vatican II.… READ MORE

God’s Mercy and the Eternity of Hell:
Reply to a genuine Heretic


Question: Would a good God condemn anyone to hell? Short answer: Yes, He would.

On Feb. 3, 2011, a writer by the name of Carol Meyer published a blog post on the “EarthBeat” section of the grossly misnamed National Catholic Reporter. It is a 570-word screed entitled “Debunking the Myth of Hell”.

Needless to say, in her brief post attacking the Catholic dogma of eternal punishment for those who die in mortal sin, Mrs. Meyer does no actual debunking whatsoever, she merely affirms vociferously that she does not believe what God has revealed because she doesn’t see how it could be true.… READ MORE

Is there a “Problem” with Transubstantiation?
Response to Hendro Munsterman

The beautiful Catholic dogma of Transubstantiation has long been a thorn in the side of Modernists and other heretical innovators. Not surprisingly, therefore, it is also under attack in the Novus Ordo Church, which, although teaching the dogma in its official universal catechism, denies or attacks it in various other ways.

For instance, the Vatican II Church undermines belief in the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist by the way it offers “Mass”, in the way “Holy Communion” is distributed, and in the fact that it authorizes even heretics and now also public adulterers to receive the ostensible Blessed Sacrament under certain circumstances.… READ MORE

Bombshells and Drivel galore:
In Q&A with Slovak Jesuits, Francis hits back at Critics

During his recent trip to Slovakia, the Argentinian aposte Jorge Bergoglio (aka “Pope Francis”) once again took time to meet with his fellow Jesuits, which usually means they get to ask him questions and he then responds with his incredibly profound wisdom.

This is something he’s been doing on pretty much all his trips outside of Italy, so it was expected. A full transcript of the question-and-answer session is always released a few weeks later by “Fr.” Antonio Spadaro, S.J., editor-in-chief of the Jesuit review La Civiltà Cattolica, which under Pope Pius IX started out as an eminently orthodox publication but has long since degenerated into an utter Modernist rag.… READ MORE

CAUTION! Francis speaks!

Francis in new Interview: “I’m Rather Shy”, Mass Readings in Latin “Like Laughing at the Word of God” — and more!


Dangerous combination: Jorge Bergoglio and an open microphone

It should be a pretty safe bet to say that “Pope” Francis has never met a microphone he didn’t like. Just recently, he got to speak into one for roughly 75 minutes, and the result of that encounter was published today.

Spanish journalist Carlos Herrera has interviewed the Jesuit pseudo-pope Jorge Bergoglio at his residence in Vatican City for the radio station Cadena de Ondas Populares Españolas — COPE for short — which is owned by Spain’s Novus Ordo bishops.… READ MORE

Francis’ Double Standard: Traditional Latin Mass forbidden, but Anglican Service is fine

On July 16, 2021, “Pope” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) made it abundantly clear that he has no love for the traditional Roman rite of the Holy Catholic Mass, also called the Tridentine Mass, which was codified by Pope St. Pius V in the 16th century. It is, after all, the perfect worship directed to the Most Holy Trinity and the liturgical expression of the Roman Catholic Faith.

On the other hand, there is a liturgy dating back to the 16th century this fake pope does approve of: that of the heretico-schismatic “Church of England”, a human institution founded by King Henry VIII after Pope Clement VII, untainted by Amoris Laetitia or the “god of surprises”, refused to grant his request for a marriage annulment.… READ MORE

MELTDOWN: Round-Up of Reactions to Francis’ Suppression of the Traditional Latin Mass

Now that almost two weeks have passed since the release of Traditionis Custodes, “Pope” Francis’ motu proprio “Apostolic Letter” that severely limits (and gradually eliminates) the Traditional Latin Mass (1962 Missal), a lot of reactions have poured in from various quarters of the Vatican II Church; especially, of course, from those who consider themselves traditionalists, since they are the ones negatively affected by the suppression of Benedict XVI’s Summorum Pontificum.

By phasing out the Traditional Latin Mass (aka Tridentine Mass), a decision he allegedly made based on answers procured through a questionnaire process, Francis has ripped the heart out of the traditionalists in his church.… READ MORE

Top Lefebvrist contradicts traditional Catholic doctrine

SSPX Superior General blasts Traditionis Custodes:
A Sedevacantist Critique

SSPX Superior General, Fr. Davide Pagliarani

Yesterday, on July 22, 2021, the headquarters of the Lefebvrist Society of Saint Pius X (FSSPX or SSPX) in Menzingen, Switzerland, released an official Letter from its Superior General, Fr. Davide Pagliarani, in response to the recent “Apostolic Letter” issued motu proprio by “Pope” Francis, Traditionis Custodes, which severely limits the use of the Roman Missal of 1962 (“Traditional Latin Mass”) and eventually phases it out completely. It can be found here:

Unlike the polemical article “From the Reserve to the Zoo” which the SSPX news team had released on July 17, this more formal reaction from the Superior General is quite different in tone, yet just as stern on the issues.… READ MORE

From the Reserve to the Zoo: Society of St. Pius X slams Francis’ Decree against Traditional Latin Mass

On Saturday, July 17, 2021, one day after the release of “Pope” Francis’ decree Traditionis Custodes, the Lefebvrist Society of St. Pius X published a scathing but humorous response, in which it accuses the supposed Vicar of Christ of “caging” the Traditional Latin Mass and forcibly administering a “vaccination” against Lefebvrism. In this way, the SSPX contends, he seeks to marginalize Tradition-loving Catholics with the ultimate goal of driving them into extinction.

So far, the SSPX statement has been released in French only, available here.… READ MORE

Why still be a Catholic? A Critique of Peter Kwasniewski’s Answer to a despondent Novus Ordo Seminarian

On May 18, 2021, the semi-trad web site One Peter Five published a moving, desperate cry for answers by a Novus Ordo seminarian. Entitled, “Seminarian: ‘Is There Any Reason Why I Should Remain Catholic?'”, the appeal showcases the impossibility of being a Roman Catholic in the Vatican II Sect, sincerest efforts notwithstanding.

In a nutshell, the reason it is not possible to be a Catholic in the Vatican II religion is that the Vatican II religion is not Catholic — it’s as simple as that.… READ MORE

Novus Ordo Parish in Germany installs “Pentecost Swing”

The Vatican II religion in full, uh, swing…

One of the biggest liturgical loony bins on the planet is the Novus Ordo church of Maria Geburt (“Nativity of Mary”) in Aschaffenburg, Germany. It is infamous for its absurd, bizarre, idiotic, and even explicitly blasphemous liturgical theater.

Since the average German “Catholic” is incredibly bored by the Novus Ordo liturgical act, some kind of entertainment is occasionally introduced in order to keep people in the game. That, at least, appears to be the reasoning behind the shenanigans at Maria Geburt.… READ MORE

Speaking of Intercommunion: Why did Francis gift a Eucharistic Chalice to a Lutheran Pastor?

Actions speak louder than words, and that is particularly true in the case of Jorge Bergoglio, the Argentinian apostate who has been starring as “Pope Francis” in the ongoing theological tragicomedy that is the Vatican II religion.

We only need to recall his happy reception of Italian abortion icon Emma Bonino, his acceptance of the invalid “blessing” of the Anglican Archlayman of Canterbury, or his blessing of the adulterous union of the Colombian president and his mistress. These actions say more than enough — no explanation needed.… READ MORE
