Signatory to the Dubia…
“Cardinal” Joachim Meisner dies at 83
[UPDATE: Francis sends condolences — FULL TEXT]
The Novus Ordo Archdiocese of Cologne, Germany, is reporting that its former leader, “Cardinal” Joachim Meisner, has died. He was 83. According to a report posted on the web site of its Domradio radio station, Meisner died peacefully in his sleep while vacationing in the town of Bad Füssing.
In the Vatican II Sect, Meisner was widely viewed as a strict conservative. Along with Carlo Caffarra, Walter Brandmuller, and Raymond Burke, Meisner was one of the only four “cardinals” to challenge “Pope” Francis on his exhortation Amoris Laetitia, which effectively permits unrepentant public adulterers to receive the Novus Ordo sacraments.… READ MORE

Cardinal Muller dismissed by Pope Francis
His Eminence, Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Muller, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith since July 2, 2012, has been dismissed by Pope Francis exactly 5 years after expiration of his term of office.
Cardinal Muller is one of the cardinals who have tried to interpret Amoris Laetitia using a hermeneutic of continuity with Church Tradition.
To avoid confrontation over Dubia?
No Culture of Encounter: Francis apparently won’t hold Pre-Consistory Meeting with “Cardinals” again
As we learned in the last few months and especially in the past 2 days, although he constantly preaches about “dialogue”, “open doors”, and a “culture of encounter” Christians must supposedly practice, when it comes to four of his own “cardinals” humbly seeking to dialogue with him about their questions concerning the exhortation Amoris Laetitia, all of a sudden the leader of the Vatican II Sect isn’t all that into encounter anymore.
On June 19, it was revealed that Francis has been ignoring the request of “Cardinals” Caffarra, Brandmuller, Meisner, and Burke for a joint audience to resolve apparent contradictions between Francis’ exhortation Amoris Laetitia and the timeless Catholic teaching and practice regarding adultery, the state of grace, and reception of the sacraments.… READ MORE

The Dubia Saga continues: Sandro Magister publishes “Cardinal” Caffarra’s Letter to Francis requesting Audience

[UPDATE 20-JUN-17 00:22 UTC: Edward Pentin reports that this letter was delivered to Francis on May 6 of this year.]
[UPDATE 20-JUN-17 12:54 UTC: Sandro Magister publishes commentary.]
Today the veteran Vatican journalist Sandro Magister published a bombshell on his blog, Settimo Cielo.
It had been mentioned before in the press that the four “dubia cardinals” — Carlo Caffarra, Raymond Burke, Walter Brandmuller, and Joachim Meisner — had requested an audience with “Pope” Francis to discuss with him the concerns they had voiced in their “dubia” (doubts or questions) concerning the “papal” exhortation Amoris Laetitia.… READ MORE

Goodbye, Amoris Laetitia:
The Real Catholic Position on “Irregular Unions”
For the last 14 months we have heard words like accompaniment, integration, discernment, walking together, dialoguing, listening, etc., ad nauseam, specifically with regard to those who live in what the Novus Ordo Sect euphemistically calls “irregular unions” — in other words, people who live in adultery, in fornication, or in unnatural relationships.
After two turbulent and controversial Vatican synods on the family, which convened in 2014 and 2015, respectively, the world was anxiously awaiting “the Pope’s decisive judgment on the matter”. What was “Pope” Francis, Jorge Bergoglio, going to do?… READ MORE

Pope Pius XII destroys Amoris Laetitia and Francis’ False-Mercy Gospel
What a breath of fresh air it is to hear a true Pope speak, a genuine Vicar of Christ, through whom is heard the voice of St. Peter. Clarity reigns, confusion and doubt are put aside, and orthodoxy is affirmed. And it is no wonder, for every true Pope is a true shepherd of the flock of Christ: “…the sheep follow him, because they know his voice. But a stranger they follow not, but fly from him, because they know not the voice of strangers” (Jn 10:4-5).… READ MORE

The False Bergoglian Magisterium —
New Articles by Miles Christi
With Jorge Bergoglio still going strong in his role of “Pope Francis”, one never runs out of errors, heresies, blasphemies, impieties, or other scandals to refute and criticize. An utter travesty of Roman Catholicism, the Vatican II religion is the proverbial “gift that keeps on giving”, especially with Francis at the helm.
Catholic writer Miles Christi (“Soldier of Christ”), whom we have featured on this web site on numerous occasions, has released some new articles reviewing and exposing the false magisterium of the world’s most notorious apostate.… READ MORE

Francis appoints notorious Jesuit James Martin as Consultant for Vatican Secretariat for Communications
Anyone who was still under the impression that “Pope” Francis was a tough opponent of the homosexualist agenda, will definitively be disabused of this illusion now: On April 12, 2017, the Vatican announced that “Pope” Francis had appointed the notorious Jesuit LGBT-sensitive “Fr.” James Martin a consultant for the Vatican Secretariat for Communications, along with 12 other people. The secretariat was created by the “Pope” in 2015 and includes the Holy See Press Office, Vatican Radio, the Vatican Television Center, the Vatican Publishing House, and the Vatican Internet Service, among others.… READ MORE
Fra. Cristoforo: ‘Cardinal Müller told Dubia Cardinals Formal Correction would risk Schism’
Once again breaking news in Novus Ordo Land: The Roman Novus Ordo cleric who goes by the pen name of Fra. Cristoforo (“Bro. Christopher”) has just published some additional information about the four “dubia cardinals” (Caffara, Brandmuller, Meisner, and Burke) and why the previously announced “formal correction of the Pope” has been scrapped.
Last week, after Fra. Cristoforo had revealed that the formal correction was not going to happen, Vatican journalist Edward Pentin sent out some tweets (see here and here) contradicting the claim, saying that the information was not correct and the formal correction was “still on.”… READ MORE
Formal Correction of “Pope” Francis
— Not going to happen?
The perpetual Vatican soap opera about the blasphemous-heretical “Apostolic Exhortation” Amoris Laetitia released last April by “Pope” Francis appears to be going into the next round.
On November 15, 2016, “Cardinal” Raymond Burke said in an interview with the National Catholic Register that there would be a “formal act of correction” of Francis if he should refuse to answer the dubia (doubts, questions) that had been submitted to him regarding certain points of doctrine contained in the exhortation:

On Gospel Text forbidding Adultery, Francis denounces “Casuistry”
To ensure that no word of Jesus Christ will ever go understood correctly again, “Pope” Francis has been on an unrelenting diabolical mission of twisting Scriptural texts as they come up each day in the Novus Ordo lectionary. Since his installation in 2013, the Casa Santa Marta’s most obnoxious squatter has been distorting biblical passages on a daily basis to advance his very own personal “gospel”, one in which we hear an awful lot about this world, especially the poor and the suffering, but next to nothing about the importance of the afterlife, the soul, grace, justification, faith, the rights and dignity of God, etc.… READ MORE

Francis’ Raging Mess:
On Recent Vatican News & Rumors
The Vatican today is a complete mess. Not that that’s anything new, but it’s probably never been worse than it is now. It has been well over 3 years now that Francis first told people at World Youth Day 2013 to “make a mess”, and he’s been leading by splendid example.
Ten days ago we reported on the anti-Francis posters that had mysteriously popped up on Saturday morning in Rome. This rather unusual way of criticizing the pretend-Pontifex did not end there, however. In fact, it was perhaps just the beginning: A few days ago a spoofed cover of the official Vatican newspaper Osservatore Romano made the rounds (see image below).… READ MORE

Vatican Sources: Francis Not Responding to Dubia “to Prevent Greater Evil”!
The new year began the same way the old one ended: with lots of breaking news on Amoris Laetitia, the infamous “Apostolic exhortation” on the family that effectively gives public adulterers the permission to receive the Novus Ordo version of Holy Communion and penance (confession) without having to cease their adulterous activities. The “theological” basis Francis provides for this absurdity is a redefinition of sin from “voluntary transgession of the divine law” into “the best you can do for the moment, although falling short of the ideal”.… READ MORE

Amoris Laetitia and Concrete Cases:
A Reply to Austen Ivereigh
One of Francis’ biggest cheerleaders on and off the internet is the British writer Dr. Austen Ivereigh. He is the author of a comprehensive biography of Jorge Bergoglio entitled, The Great Reformer: Francis and the Making of a Radical Pope (2014).
As a contributor to various Novus Ordo publications, the left-leaning Ivereigh occasionally writes pieces defending Francis’ more controversial moves. One such attempt was recently published at Crux:
In this piece, which is essentially a high-level critique of the dubia submitted by “Cardinal” Raymond Burke & Co.… READ MORE

Francis denounces “Decadent Scholasticism”
One of the many things that “went under”, so to speak, in the flurry of breaking news stories from the Vatican in recent weeks, is the question-and-answer session Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope” Francis) gave to his fellow-Jesuits after presenting a speech at their 36th General Congregation on October 24, 2016. The Rome-based Jesuit periodical La Civiltà Cattolica has published the full Q&A text online here.
No, don’t worry, we will not slog through the entire thing now. Those who have not yet had enough of Francis’ blather can read the whole piece for themselves. … READ MORE
