Novus Ordo philosopher ups the ante…

Robert Spaemann: “There is a limit to how much the Church can take”

robert-spaemann.jpg

Robert Spaemann is an 89-year-old German philosopher and one of the few outspoken critics of “Pope” Francis. His religious affiliation is what we call “conservative Novus Ordo”, that is, he believes the Modernist Vatican II Sect to be the Catholic Church and Francis her legitimate head while adhering to what’s typically considered to be a conservative interpretation of Vatican II and the post-conciliar magisterium.

In April of this year, he denounced Francis’ “Apostolic Exhortation” Amoris Laetitia and warned about the “danger of schism” while Francis continues to wreck what is left of Catholicism in the Vatican II Church.

“Just do the best you can, Battista…”

This is the day Michael Voris must have been waiting for: Francis finally condemns heretics! Quick, everyone: Fire up the Vortex cameras and get everything ready on the web site to report on this breaking news!

On second thought, maybe not… Unfortunately for Mr. Voris and his Church Militant crew, Francis condemns as heretical precisely the kind of Catholic Michael Voris considers himself to be. Ouch! (Tim Haines, he means you too!)

On Thursday, June 9, Francis once again outdid himself in the sermon he gave at the daily “Mass” at Casa Santa Marta, this time on the Gospel of St.

The Jorge Whisperer:

Key Texts in Amoris Laetitia found in “Abp.” Fernandez’s Theological Articles from 10 Years Ago

Our apologies to Robert Redford, “The Horse Whisperer”

What do you know… We’ve been saying all along that the ghostwriter of Francis’ latest magisterial disaster — the “Apostolic Exhortation” Amoris Laetitia — is Argentinian “Archbishop” Victor Manuel Fernandez (aka “Smoochie”), but we had no idea how right we were: The Italian Vaticanist Sandro Magister has now uncovered that key passages in the exhortation bear striking resemblance to what Fernandez had written in a theological journal ten years ago.

An Update:
Francis and the Society of St. Pius X

fellay-francis.jpg

 

The Society of St. Pius X, since 1994 headed by the intrepid Bp. Bernard Fellay, who considers himself the leader of Traditional Catholicism yet without even so much as a single significant theological contribution to back him up, has now released a statement on Jorge Bergoglio’s infernal exhortation Amoris Laetitia:

The Society’s reaction is entitled, “Enough to make one weep” — which about sums up all the SSPX has left at this point to put up against Francis’ in-your-face apostasy: tears, sobbing, and hand-wringing.

Admission to the Sacraments through the Back Door…

Francis to “Archbishop” Forte:

“If we speak explicitly of Communion for the Divorced-and-Remarried, we don’t know what a mess will result. So let’s not mention it directly. Make sure the premises are there, and I will draw the conclusions”!

Bruno Forte

For those who have been denying the obvious about Francis’ post-synodal exhortation Amoris Laetitia, this latest revelation probably won’t make a difference either, but this won’t keep us from laying the facts on the table:

Just as “Cardinal” Gerhard Muller of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Destruction Doctrine of the Faith went out of his way to argue that Amoris Laetitia does not permit public adulterers to approach the Novus Ordo sacraments, “Archbishop” Bruno Forte, one of the more notorious Modernists in the Italian Novus Ordo hierarchy and author of the infamous mid-term report (Relatio Post Disceptationem) that caused the first wave of chaos after the 2014 Synod, has revealed that Francis told him personally that while he would indeed allow the reception of “Communion” by public adulterers, he wanted to do so only very discreetly — through the back door, so to speak — in order to prevent a “mess”!

Amoris Laetitia and the Coming Schism:
Retrospect and Prospect

Shortly before the Synod on the Family of 2014 — the first of the two mini-councils, whose final result was the toxic exhortation Amoris Laetitia — we put the question before our readers: How long until schism?

After this initial post, we followed up now and again to report on various happenings that indicated that indeed a serious rupture within the Vatican II Sect was beginning to take shape:

On April 8, 2016, the very day the Vatican released Francis’ post-synodal exhortation that has effectively permitted public sinners to approach the Novus Ordo sacraments without requiring conversion first, the reputable German Vaticanist Andreas Englisch warned that a schism with Benedict XVI as Antipope, although he believed it to be unlikely, could not be ruled out:

Earlier in 2014, and even as early as December of 2013, we had already detected the beginnings of a schism in a phenomenon we decided to label “Resignationism”, a position taken by a number of Novus Ordos and Semi-Traditionalists who believe that Benedict XVI’s resignation on February 11, 2013, was made under duress and was therefore, per Novus Ordo Church law, invalid.

Game Over for those in denial…

Francis confirms: “YES”, Sacraments for Public Adulterers now an Option, points to “Cardinal” Schönborn’s Explanation

Bad news for “Cardinal” Burke, Michael Voris, Dave Armstrong, Tim Haines, and the rest of the conservative Novus Ordo crowd that thought they could explain it away: Francis has just personally confirmed that yes, with the publication of Amoris Laetitia, there are now new options availbable for unrepentant public adulterers and fornicators (possibly also for sodomites), options that were not available before, with regard to access to the Novus Ordo “sacraments.”

Today, April 16, on his return flight from Lesbos — that’s a Greek island in the Mediterranean — he held his usual in-flight press conference, in which he answered impromptu questions from journalists aboard the “papal” plane.

After Amoris Laetitia:
Illustrating the Absurdity

To illustate the absurdity and folly of “Pope” Francis’ Post-Synodal “Apostolic” Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, we have put together a few memes for sharing on social media that all are welcome to disseminate widely. The idea is to quickly reach more people with the truth that what is put out by the Vatican II Sect as “Catholicism” is utter Modernist garbage and does not deserve to be taken seriously. Sometimes it is easier to communicate ideas to people by means of satire in a cartoon, a picture, or a meme, especially to those people who do shy away from reading.

Francis’ post-synodal exhortation Amoris Laetitia has caused the predicted chaos among conservative adherents of the Vatican II religion, although a few are still in denial. Approximately 18 hours since its official release, plenty of summaries, commentaries, and reactions continue to pour in. We are chronicling the meltdown and present the most explosive quotes from the wordy document in the following two links:

Meanwhile, the German intellectual review Merkur has published an interview with one of the country’s leading “papal” biographers and Vatican journalists, Andreas Englisch.

At 254 pages of printed text, 391 footnotes, and exceeding 57,000 English words, Amoris Laetitia has got to be a new record for the post-Vatican II paper factory.

francis-uh-oh.jpg

They do not say how they obtained it, or who put it together, but the indult/semi-trad blog Rorate Caeli has just published a summary of the “post-synodal Apostolic exhortation” Amoris Laetitia, which will be officially released tomorrow (April 8) at a press conference scheduled to begin at 11:30 am Rome time (5:30 am ET). Novus Ordo Watch will provide full coverage.

LEAKED SUMMARY

The summary is divided into the following sections, with the paragraphs of the exhortation referenced in parentheses:

  • Introduction (1-7)
  • Chapter One: “In the light of the Word” (8-30)
