The Day Before:
Novus Ordo Adherents Apprehensive about Post-Synodal “Apostolic Exhortation” Amoris Laetitia
Don’t worry, buddy, Jimmy Akin’s got this!
What, oh what will Francis do?
Nothing shows trust and confidence in the Petrine office as the guarantee of orthodoxy and sound morals better than hysterically anticipating the theological equivalent of a nuclear detonation because “the Pope” will make a decision about whether publicly unrepentant adulterers can receive “Holy Communion”. In the Catholic Church, there would be nothing to decide on this topic. If a document were to be issued on it, it would contain one word: “No!”… READ MORE

Francis Unplugged: Hoopla ensues after Confusing Comments on Return Flight from Mexico
Links to developments & commentary below
We all knew this was coming, and it is always the best part of his trips: The expected but impromptu in-flight news conference aboard the “papal” plane, featuring Jorge Bergoglio answering questions from journalists off-the-cuff. This is Francis unplugged. Unscripted. Unfiltered. Warts and all. This usually means lots of rambling, disjointed thoughts, flowery phrases, vague platitudes, ambiguous language — lots to clean up afterwards for the various Novus Ordo spokesmen, commentators, and apologists.
It was no different this time.… READ MORE
Fallout from the latest Francis Fiasco
Novus Ordo Priest warns Francis the Holy Ghost will Strike him Dead or Incapacitate him!

Official caption: “A lightning strikes St Peter’s dome at the Vatican on February 11, 2013. Pope Benedict XVI announced today he will resign as leader of the world’s 1.1 billion Catholics on February 28 because his age prevented him from carrying out his duties — an unprecedented move in the modern history of the Catholic Church.”
As we predicted early on, Francis has caused nothing but chaos in the Modernist Sect since he began to play “Bishop of Rome” on March 13, 2013.… READ MORE
October Surprise! Muller caves…
“Cardinal” Müller: Communion for Unrepentent Adulterers Conceivable in Exceptional Cases
As Francis’ Synod on the Family enters its last and decisive week, the German edition of Vatican Radio drops a bombshell: “Cardinal” Gerhard Ludwig Muller, the head of the Vatican’s so-called Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, argued in an interview with the German news magazine Focus that unrepentant adulterers could be admitted to Holy Communion in exceptional cases.
Here is a translation of the snippet published on Radio Vatikan (the full interview has not yet been released by Focus):

Curial cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller does not rule out admitting remarried divorcees to Communion “in extreme individual cases”, according to media reports.

Masterful: Two Days after Opening Annulment Floodgates, Francis “Laments” Attack on Families
If hypocrisy could prolong your life, Francis would be immortal. The Argentinian impostor pope is a master at the pernicious art of Modernism, the “synthesis of all heresies”, as the heroic Pope Saint Pius X called it in his 1907 landmark encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis (n. 39). When one studies the tactics of the Modernists, as exposed, for example, in the Vatican-endorsed 1886 book Liberalism is a Sin, or in Pope Pius VI’s 1794 bull Auctorem Fidei, one finds that one is eerily reminded of people like “Pope” Francis.… READ MORE

Francis overhauls Marriage “Annulments”, Abortion now Grounds for Nullity!
Clearly, they don’t have enough marriage “annulments”, abortions, or broken families in the Novus Ordo Church yet, so… Francis to the rescue!
Today, September 8, 2015, the Birthday of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Vatican’s Argentinian lay impostor “Pope”, Francis, released two “Apostolic Letters” Motu Proprio to reform the process for declarations of matrimonial nullity. Here are the relevant links to the documents, in various languages:
The first English reports and summaries on the new annulment changes have appeared — we are linking them here:
In a nutshell, Francis’ overhaul of declarations of nullity establishes the following major changes (we are basing this information on the news reports linked above):

- Process will be free of charge (diocese must carry the costs, can be helped by local bishops’ conference)
- One single sentence suffices – no more automatic appeal of the first sentence, though a manual appeal is still possible
- If one party fails to show up after being summoned twice, taken as consent that annulment process should move forward
- A first appeal is to remain local, that is, on the metropolitan level
- A second appeal can be made to the Vatican
- There need only be one single judge, under the local bishop
- The bishop alone can be the judge, bypassing the normal process of the tribunal, under certain conditions
- Abortion is now grounds for annulment (now this is just plain evil, as it may cause women seeking an “annulment” to have an abortion as a sure way to get their “declaration of nullity” — don’t think some could be this wicked?

The “Cardinal” Kasper Interview

As the saying goes: If it looks like a duck, walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, it’s a duck. It is no different with heretics, especially Modernists. Pope St. Pius X wrote in his 1907 landmark encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis that Modernists can be identified as such by looking at what they do, what they believe, and how they express themselves. Let’s have a look at the opening paragraphs of this great papal document and see if this doesn’t sound eerily familiar:

One of the primary obligations assigned by Christ to the office divinely committed to Us of feeding the Lord’s flock is that of guarding with the greatest vigilance the deposit of the faith delivered to the saints, rejecting the profane novelties of words and the gainsaying of knowledge falsely so called.

What’s Good for the Goose is Good for the Gander: How the October Synod Refutes Vatican II’s False Ecclesiology
When the so-called “Synod on the Family” met at the Vatican this past October, a lot of people were outraged when they heard about the midterm document (relatio) that attempted to dissect mortal sins — including those that cry to Heaven for vengeance — into positive and negative “elements”. This idea, however, was not entirely new — it was simply the extension of a concept endorsed at the Second Vatican Council, according to which there exist “elements” of the Catholic Church in other religions, specifically Protestant sects.… READ MORE
