Brandmuller: “It’s all or nothing”…
Francis: “I may go down in history as the one who split the Catholic Church”!
Just a few hours ago, the online edition of the secularist German periodical Der Spiegel published an interesting article on Francis’ explosive Christmas greetings to his curia yesterday and the general atmosphere in the Vatican. The article, penned by Walter Mayr, is entitled, “Der Papst kocht”, which translates as, “The Pope is fuming”, a reference to Edward Pentin’s recent revelation that Francis was “boiling with rage” at the public release of the dubia submitted by “Cardinals” Burke, Brandmüller, Caffarra, and Meisner in November.… READ MORE
In Christmas Address to Curia, Francis slams “Malicious Resistance” that accuses others and hides behind Traditions!
Well, folks, it looks like the dubia supporters have gotten their answer. Today, Dec. 22, 2016, Francis gave his annual Christmas address to the Roman Curia, which in the past had been loaded with fireworks. So too this time around.
The main focus of this year’s address was the ongoing reform of the Roman Curia, which he likened to a “surgical operation”. He listed twelve principles that guide his reworking of the Vatican apparatus: individualism; pastoral concern; missionary spirit; clear organization; improved functioning; modernization; sobriety; subsidiarity; synodality; catholicity; professionalism; and gradualism.… READ MORE

“Cardinal” Burke: Francis Not in Heresy, but Heretical Pope would Lose Office automatically

The Amoris Laetitia controversy is far from over. If anything, it’s entering now into its hottest phase yet.
American “Cardinal” Raymond Burke has recently given some interviews on the dubia and their non-response by “Pope” Francis and explained what is to happen next if the dubia remain unanswered. Previously Burke had already threatened a “formal act of correction” against Francis, but without giving details or a timeline. Now Burke has upped the ante.
On December 15, 2016, EWTN’s Raymond Arroyo interviewed the Novus Ordo cardinal on his nightly news program, The World Over.… READ MORE
A very important reality check
Hey, Dubia Supporters! Where were you when John Paul II allowed Protestants to receive “Communion”?

These days a good portion of the Novus Ordo world is up in arms about “Pope” Francis’ attempts to permit unrepentant public adulterers to receive the [Novus Ordo] sacraments, and rightly so. A veritable schism seems to be forming at this time, as countless clergy and laymen are rallying behind the four no-compromise “cardinals” who have made it clear that they will not stand for this attempt to dispense from the Sixth Commandment.… READ MORE
Hard-hitting speech condemns Francis
“Bishop” Schneider rocks Rome, accuses Francis of promoting “The Joy of Adultery” by pretending to Dispense from the Sixth Commandment

The prelude to a formal schism within the Novus Ordo Sect has just reached a new stage: On Monday, Dec. 5, 2016, the Rome-based Lepanto Foundation held a conference in the Eternal City on Christian marriage and the errors of “Pope” Francis’ exhortation Amoris Laetitia. The well-attended conference was hosted by the Foundation‘s president, Roberto de Mattei, and took place only about 3 miles from the Vatican.… READ MORE
Athanasius Schneider on French TV:
“A certain kind of Schism already exists in the Church”
On Sunday, Dec. 4, 2016, the internet-based French television station TV Libertés aired an installment of its program Terres de Mission. One of its guests was Athanasius Schneider, auxiliary “bishop” of Maria Santissima in Astana, Kazakhstan, who was interviewed about the fallout from the dubia submitted to “Pope” Francis to receive clarification on certain points contained in the “Apostolic” exhortation Amoris Laetitia. The entire program can be watched in the original French here.
We have taken the portion of the broadcast that contains the interview with Mr.… READ MORE
Genuine Misquote or Damage Control Effort?
Dean Pinto of Roman Rota says he did Not issue Threat to Four “Cardinals”

An interesting development has occurred, and it’s one that will probably make you chuckle.
On Nov. 29, the Spanish web site Religion Confidencial published a report according to which the dean of the Novus Ordo Sect’s Roman Rota — the Vatican’s highest appeals court — had issued a threat against the four “dubia cardinals” Burke, Brandmuller, Meisner, and Caffarra, basically for challenging Francis in public to either fish or cut bait, as it were, regarding “Holy Communion” for adulterers and other more basic moral issues in the “papal” exhortation Amoris Laetitia.… READ MORE

CDF Head “Cardinal” Müller on the Dubia:
“Cannot get involved in the Dispute”

In an interview published on Dec. 1, 2016, by the German Dom Radio, the head of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Destruction of the Faith, “Cardinal” Gerhard Ludwig Muller, has weighed in on the ongoing controversy over Amoris Laetitia, specifically the five “doubts” (dubia) submitted by “Cardinals” Burke, Caffarra, Brandmuller, and Meisner.
Due to time constraints we are not able to translate the entire interview, but we will give you the most important parts:

This letter [of the dubia submitted by the four “cardinals”] was addressed to the Pope himself and contained questions regarding the correct interpretation of Amoris Laetitia.
Don’t mess with Francis!

[UPDATE: “Mgr.” Pinto says he was misquoted, Religion Confidencial issues retraction]
We all know that Francis is the champion of dialogue and encounter, but when “Cardinals” Burke, Brandmuller, Meisner, and Caffarra recently did nothing more than ask five very specific questions on a very important theological matter they wanted clarification on, the ever-so-humble Argentinian bridge builder decided to put up a wall: In a defeaning silence, he simply refused to answer.… READ MORE
New interview — and then some…
“Boiling with Rage”: Francis Reacts to Formal Request for Clarification on Amoris Laetitia
The neverending drama about Amoris Laetitia continues.
The formal request submitted by “Cardinals” Caffarra, Meisner, Burke, and Brandmuller for clarification of five specific points in the infernal exhortation Amoris Laetitia (the so-called dubia, or “doubts”), was released to the public this past Monday, since for almost two months the “Sovereign Pontiff” had refused to give them the courtesy of a response. “Cardinal” Burke added more fuel to the fire by saying in a follow-up interview that the next step would be to confront Francis with a “formal act of correction” should he persist in his errors.… READ MORE
Hey, at least they’re trying…
Vatican Theologians reportedly studying what to do about a Heretical Pope
The fireworks just keep on coming. As the reliable Vaticanist Giuseppe Nardi reports today, a 1975 theological study by the learned Brazilian layman Arnaldo Vidigal Xavier da Silveira is currently making the rounds in the Vatican, and it’s not just any study: It’s a study on whether it is possible for a Pope to be or become a heretic, and if so, what consequences would follow from this.
What might possibly have given occasion for Vatican theologians to occupy themselves with such abstruse thoughts? Have they all gone into studying abstract hypotheses for the sake of sharpening their intellects?… READ MORE
Last Step before Schism?
“Cardinal” Burke threatens Francis with “Formal Act of Correction” if he won’t retract the Errors in Amoris Laetitia

When on Monday, Nov. 14, the Italian journalist Sandro Magister published the five dubia submitted to Francis by “Cardinals” Caffarra, Burke, Brandmuller, and Meisner in September, requesting a “clarification” on various controverted points found in the Bergoglian exhortation Amoris Laetitia, it was certain that “clarification” was just a smoother-sounding code word for “retraction”. There is, after all, nothing left to clarify: The exhortation is a most dangerous document subversive of the very foundations of Catholic morality that brazenly attacks the indissolubility of the marriage bond; and Francis has already confirmed, sometimes more, sometimes less openly, that any ambiguous passages are to be understood in their heretical sense.… READ MORE

Amoris Laetitia Revolution:
Pro-Francis “Secret Police” dispatched to ensure last remaining Vestiges of Catholic Morals will be Overturned
Boy, things are really hitting the fan now over Amoris Laetitia. As the Italian conservative Novus Ordo journalist Sandro Magister revealed on his blog today, there is a pro-Francis “secret police” at work in Rome now, bullying Novus Ordo academics into compliance with Francis’ new-found perverted morality as laid out in the “Apostolic” exhortation Amoris Laetitia. This is the document that effectively permits unrepentant fornicators and adulterers — and, at least by extension, also practitionors of unnatural vice — to receive the Novus Ordo sacraments.… READ MORE
