[UPDATE 30-OCT-2021 20:09 UTC: Report: Biden to attend “Mass” at St. Peter’s Basilica Sunday Morning]
[UPDATE 30-OCT-2021 18:37 UTC: “President Joe Biden receives Communion at Mass in Rome”]
Roughly two weeks after welcoming Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi at the Vatican, “Pope” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) today received U.S. resident Joe Biden. The two had an “unprecedentedly long” meeting (see link below) and, judging from photos and some video clips, clearly enjoyed each other’s company.… READ MORE

Clearly in awe of each other: “Pope” Francis with Nancy Pelosi
(image: screenshot from YouTube / fair use)
It is an old adage that a picture says more than a thousand words. Just imagine how much a number of pictures communicate, then.
Photos sending a very clear message were taken this past Saturday, Oct. 9, when “Pope” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) granted a private audience to Nancy Pelosi (b. 1940), the current Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives.
Here is some coverage of this event:
Pelosi received a cordial welcome by Francis, who clearly seemed enamored of his American guest.… READ MORE

Francis jokes about Jewish Woman receiving “Communion”, addresses Amoris Laetitia and Abortion
Today the false pope, Francis (Jorge Bergoglio), concluded his trip to Hungary and Slovakia. On his return flight aboard Airhead One, he held another one of his notorious press conferences, where he answers questions from journalists more or less spontaneously and candidly.
A full video of the 28-minute conference has been provided by Vatican News (Italian), with a full English transcript, available here:
Most of the tidbits came in his lengthy answer given to American journalist Gerard O’Connell, who asked:

A Sly Devil: How Francis Secretly Undermines Doctrinal Opposition to Abortion while Appearing to Affirm It
A new interview with Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) has just been released by the Spanish radio channel COPE. A full English transcript of the 75-minute conversation with Spanish journalist Carlo Herrera was published by Vatican News on September 1:
We have excerpted highlights from this interview and provided some commentary in a separate blog post:
In the current post, we would like to provide more extensive analysis of one specific response Francis gave to a question by Herrera that is particularly alarming.… 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

Pope Pius XII on the Moral Limits of Medical Treatment
On Sep. 14, 1952, Pope Pius XII gave an address to the First International Congress on the Histopathology of the Nervous System.
In it, the Holy Father speaks to scientists and doctors about the moral limits of medical research and treatment, specifically with regard to new methods, procedures, and technologies being tried. Pope Pius also addresses the question of what rights the patient has over his own body and psyche, what rights the doctor has over the patient, and, perhaps most importantly of all, what rights the lawful public authority has over individuals in view of the common good — and doesn’t have.… READ MORE
Theological poppycock under the guise of piety and humility…
Is Everyone Unworthy to Receive Holy Communion?
A Refutation of “Cardinal” Blase Cupich
“For such false apostles are deceitful workmen,
transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.” (2 Cor 11:13)
One of the biggest theological shysters in the American Vatican II Church is “Cardinal” Blase J. Cupich, the supposed Catholic Archbishop of Chicago.
The most recent example is his pious-sounding article “We Are All Unworthy”, published by the Chicago Catholic a few days ago. In it, this Modernist false shepherd puts on his somber face and argues that since everyone is unworthy of God’s gifts, and yet God loves us anyway, we shouldn’t “judge” others and exclude them from receiving Holy Communion.… READ MORE

Unholy Communion: After 30+ Years, Vatican II Church still debating whether Abortion Supporters should be denied Eucharist
Every so often, the issue of whether pro-abortion “Catholic” politicians should be allowed receive the Novus Ordo version of Holy Communion comes up, and usually it concerns North America, especially the United States.
With a “Roman Catholic” resident in the White House now who actively supports not only the crushing, cutting, and vacuuming of preborn babies out of the natural habitat that is their mother’s womb, but also the tax-payer funding thereof, the issue of “refusal of Communion” is once again a topic in the U.S.… READ MORE

The COVID Crisis: Advice for Traditional Catholics from Fr. Stephen McKenna and Dr. Daniel Stanislowski
Frequent visitors to this web site may recall that in late 2020, we published a post on the morality of vaccinations. It featured an episode of True Restoration‘s podcast program in which Fr. Stephen McKenna laid out and explained the principles of Catholic morality that govern the use of vaccines:
Although released later in the year, the episode had actually been recorded in January of 2020, weeks before Coronavirus/ COVID-19 was an issue in most parts of the world; wherefore it did not address the topic of COVID-19 specifically, much less that of the COVID-19 vaccines that are now available.… READ MORE

The Vatican II Church and Joe Biden
Presidential candidate Joe Biden on Oct. 30, 2020. He ostentatiously wears a Rosary bracelet.
Joseph Robinette Biden, Jr., moved into the White House on Jan. 20, 2021. It is clear that in the United States presidential election of 2020, Biden was “Pope” Francis’ favored candidate over incumbent Donald Trump. Even while the election results had not yet been officially determined, the Argentinian pseudo-pope called Biden to congratulate. On Jan. 20, Francis released a “pontifical message” addressed to Biden, in which he again “extend[ed] cordial good wishes and the assurance of my prayers that Almighty God will grant you wisdom and strength in the exercise of your high office.”… READ MORE

Joe Biden in 2019:
“The Holy Father gives me Communion”
Biden smirks during an interview with PBS in 2019
Joseph R. Biden, Jr., is the current occupant of the White House in Washington, D.C. He is a member of the Novus Ordo Church in good standing, something he likes to point out when occasion suggests it.
On Sunday, Oct. 27, 2019, Biden attended the Novus Ordo worship service in Florence, South Carolina. When he walked up to receive (the Novus Ordo version of) Holy Communion, the presbyter refused to administer it to him:

Father Robert E. Morey of Saint Anthony Catholic Church confirmed Monday afternoon that he had denied the presidential candidate Holy Communion because of his stance on abortion.

Apostasy in Latin: Modernist Fr. Reginald Foster, Vatican’s Top Latin Expert, dies on Christmas Day
Fr. Reginald Foster (1939-2020) gave up wearing his collar long time ago…
Christmas Day saw the unexpected passing of Fr. Reginald Thomas Foster, O.C.D. (1939-2020), apparently from complications associated with COVID-19. The name of the discalced Carmelite friar probably does not ring a bell with most people, but for decades he was a most important individual in Vatican City. “Reggie”, as he liked to be called, was the foremost living authority on the Latin language, certainly in the Vatican II Church and probably in the entire world.… READ MORE

The Morality of Vaccination:
Are Traditional Catholics permitted to take Shots?
Vaccine injections are a hot topic, especially at the current time. Whether one may receive them, must receive them, or must refuse them, are questions for Catholic moral theology.
The Pastoralia show of the sedevacantist True Restoration media apostolate features Catholic priests who provide sound pastoral advice to faithful Catholics, helping them to form their consciences in accordance with traditional Catholic morality so they can correctly apply the Church’s moral principles to the often complex situations they face in today’s world.
In Episode 18 of Pastoralia (found below), Fr.… READ MORE
