Aldo Maria Valli is a conservative Novus Ordo Italian journalist specializing in the affairs of the Vatican. He has authored a great many books, including Il Caso Viganò, Le Due Chiese, and 266: Jorge Mario Bergoglio Franciscus P.P.
Valli publishes the blog Duc in Altum, mostly in Italian. Although he has been critical of Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) for a few years now, it was not until Feb. 21, 2021, that he released the following monograph in English (the Italian original came a day earlier):
Francis opts for Old Testament Blessing at New Year’s Angelus
At the end of the Angelus prayer on Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2019, the “Holy Father” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) decided to nix the usual Catholic blessing invoking the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, and replaced it with a blessing from the Old Testament found in Numbers 6:22-26:
And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Say to Aaron and his sons: Thus shall you bless the children of Israel, and you shall say to them: The Lord bless thee, and keep thee. The Lord shew his face to thee, and have mercy on thee.

“The Secret of Benedict XVI: Why he is still Pope”
After over five-and-a-half years of the antics of Jorge Bergoglio as “Pope Francis”, many Novus Ordos and semi-traditionalists simply cannot take it anymore and are starting to look for ways to rid themselves of Francis, yet while still trying to avoid the Sedevacantist conclusion. Thus we are witnessing once again the “anything but Sedevacantism” dogma being put into practice.
A few years ago we had already seen a few people embrace the phenomenon we have nicknamed “Resignationism” (see all our posts on the topic here) — the idea that Benedict XVI’s resignation in 2013 was invalid and he is therefore “still” Pope — but it was not accepted by most.… READ MORE
The former Vatican nuncio to the United States, “Abp.” Carlo Maria Viganò, has just released a new four-page letter in which he reasserts the truth of the accusations of his original Testimony, justifies his decision to go public, and responds to Francis’ attempts to ignore, dismiss, and defame him.… READ MORE
In 1926, Pope Pius XI instituted World Mission Sunday, to be observed every year on the penultimate Sunday of October. This year, World Mission Sunday falls on Oct. 21. Although the Vatican II Sect has retained this observance, it has largely emptied the concept of mission of its original meaning — that of making Christian disciples of all nations so that souls will be saved and not damned: “Going therefore, teach ye all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost.… READ MORE
'Fr.' @ThomasReeseSJ, mentor of James Martin, explains how he became a Modernist: Vatican II, Raymond Brown, Edward Schillebeeckx, Hans Kung, Charles Curran, and others did it: No surprise there. Should have read Fenton and Garrigou-Lagrange instead.
Francis warns: There's more "newness" coming! "...remember that attachment to our history and to the meaningful places of our tradition must not prevent the newness of the Spirit from tracing paths, especially when the Church’s journey requires it" - https://press.vatican.va/content/salastampa/en/bollettino/pubblico/2023/03/27/230327d.html
Francis to seminarians: "It will not be Rome to tell you what you should do... If Rome were to begin to make the decisions it would be a blow to the Holy Spirit, who works in the particular Churches" - https://press.vatican.va/content/salastampa/en/bollettino/pubblico/2023/03/27/230327d.html Except, of course, when it comes the Latin Mass...
