Athanasius Schneider’s explosive Prayer for the Synod 2023: An incisive Sedevacantist Analysis
The world’s most significant insignificant Novus Ordo bishop is back in the news: the Most Rev. Athanasius Schneider, auxiliary for the diocese of Maria Santissima in Astana, Kazakhstan.
Yesterday, Sep. 28, the Vatican journalist Diane Montagna published on her Twitter (or ‘X’) account a “Prayer for the 2023 ‘Synod on Synodality'” that was composed by ‘Bp.’ Schneider (why ‘Bishop’ in quotes?). It is not clear whether the text is Montagna’s translation, or whether Schneider wrote the prayer in English. Although released a day early, it is dated Sep.… READ MORE

On Sep. 6, 2023, the Rev. James Altman — one of the “canceled priests” in the United States — published a video in which he explained, in his own style, why he believes that Jorge Mario Bergoglio (‘Pope Francis’) is not in fact the Pope of the Catholic Church:
This has of course triggered a wave of reactions, mostly by recognize-and-resist traditionalists (“semi-trads”) and conservative Novus Ordos who had shown support for ‘Fr.’… READ MORE

‘Bishop’ Athanasius Schneider issues Statement declaring Disobedience against Traditionis Custodes to be Legitimate
He rules no flock but presumes to issue directives to the Universal Church: Athanasius Schneider
For the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul, ‘Bishop’ Athanasius Schneider (b. 1961), auxiliary of the diocese of Maria Santissima in Astana, Kazakhstan, has released a statement for publication and dissemination in semi-traditionalists quarters that presumes to effectively overrule ‘Pope’ Francis’ anti-Latin-Mass decree Traditionis Custodes, declaring those who reject it to be free from the guilt of disobedience.
Rorate Caeli is one of the blogs carrying it:
To someone who does not merely pay lip service to the Catholic understanding of the Papacy but actually adheres to it, this whole scenario appears grotesque.… READ MORE

The Latest Athanasius Schneider Interview:
A Sedevacantist Assessment
“Bishop” Athanasius Schneider (b. 1961) is currently in the United States, traveling from one speaking engagement to another. As one of “Pope” Francis’ most outspoken critics, the Kazakh auxiliary of Astana is in high demand with the recognize-and-resist traditionalists, who need a kind of ‘substitute pope’ to reassure them that they are right to resist Francis while still recognizing him as a valid successor of St. Peter. And Schneider delivers.
Never mind that, supposing him to be Pope for a moment, it is Francis who has universal jurisdiction over all Catholics, whereas Schneider has jurisdiction over none, being a mere auxiliary and not in charge of a diocese.… READ MORE

A Case of Mistaken Identity: Semi-Trad Conference tries to be Catholic in Opposition to the ‘Pope’
Eric Frankovitch, John-Henry Westen, and Michael Matt during a press conference Oct. 1, 2022
This past weekend, from Sep. 30 to Oct. 2, 2022, American recognize-and-resist traditionalists held an event called the “Catholic Identity Conference” in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (official web site).
Not unexpectedly, it was very well attended, being one of the few ways every year the semi-traditionalist crowd can gather together to reassure each other that they’re on the right track, regardless of what the “Pope” says — or the sedevacantists.… READ MORE

Five years ago today, on Sep. 24, 2017, a number of conservative and traditionalist adherents of the religious establishment headed by Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) made public a long letter (dated Aug. 11, 2017) in which they accused their incredibly valid ‘Vicar of Christ’ of heresy, that is, of denying defined Catholic dogma.
Named Correctio Filialis (“Filial Correction”), the document did not merely contradict Francis’ errors, it de facto purported to overrule (“correct”) them.… READ MORE

A Recap of Francis’ Participation in the Congress of World Religions in Kazakhstan
A lot happened last week in Kazakhstan. The seventh so-called Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions took place in the capital of Nur-Sultan, also known as Astana, and the head of the Vatican II religion, the Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) had a prominent role to play in it.
Originally scheduled to be held in the city’s pyramid building, named the Palace of Peace and Reconciliation, it ended up being transferred to the Palace of Independence.… READ MORE

Francis: The Different Religions are an ‘Enrichment’ for Humanity
This pagan shrine to the Four Seated Buddhas enriches humanity in Bago, Myanmar
Ever since Francis’ trip to Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, in February of 2019, the false pope has left absolutely no doubt that he believes that the existence of many different religions is a positive thing, an asset for humanity, indeed willed by God Himself no less than He wills the existence of various races, languages, and the two sexes.
This issue came up again at the recent Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions held in Nur-Sultan, Kazakhstan, in which His Phoniness took active part.… READ MORE

The Francis Show in Kazakhstan:
Bergoglio’s ‘Apostolic Journey’ of Sep. 13-15, 2022
On Tuesday, Sep. 13, 2022, the Jesuit apostate Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) will visit the nation of Kazakhstan, specifically its capital of Nur-Sultan, which until 2019 was known as Astana. Kazakhstan lies in Central Asia and is a former Soviet republic. It is the ninth largest country in the world.
The main reason for Francis’ trip, which concludes on Thursday, Sep. 15, is attendance at the seventh triennial Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions. The topic for this year’s meeting is: “The Role of Leaders of World and Traditional Faiths in the Socio-Spiritual Development of Humanity after the Pandemic”.… READ MORE

Vatican releases Logo for Francis’ Trip to Kazakhstan in September
Francis’ apostatic journey to Kazakhstan is scheduled for Sep. 13-15, 2022. This will not simply be one more trip like any other; rather, it will have significance similar to that of his visit to the United Arab Emirates in February of 2019, where he signed a common declaration on human fraternity together with a high-ranking Moslem imam.
The main reason for the visit to the Central Asian nation and its capital Nur-Sultan (known as Astana until 2019) in particular is his announced participation in the Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions that will be taking place then.… READ MORE
Next milestone in the Great Apostasy?
Francis to the Pyramid: Antipope Bergoglio to visit World Religions Congress in Kazakhstan in September
Mr. Kassym-Jomart Tokayev is the president of the Republic of Kazakhstan, a nation in Central Asia which until 1991 was part of the Communist Soviet Union and is predominantly Muslim.
On Apr. 11, 2022, President Tokayev held a video conference with the Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio, who is better known to the world by his stage name, “Pope Francis”. Both the Kazakh press and Vatican News report that during the meeting Francis expressed his desire to visit the nation’s capital of Nur-Sultan (until 2019 known as Astana) to attend the seventh triennial Congress of Leaders of World and Traditional Religions, planned for Sep.… READ MORE
Dreary Christmas: Semi-Trads excoriate Francis over new Latin Mass Restrictions
Move over, Grinch, Scrooge, and other sourpusses: No one wrecks Christmas like the Frankster!
This past Saturday, Dec. 18, His Phoniness “Pope” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) issued an utterly merciless decree against those in his Modernist church who attempt to practice traditional Catholicism while nevertheless recognizing him as Pope. As they are dependent on ready access to the Traditional Latin Mass “in full communion” with the Modernist hierarchy as the center of their sacramental lives, Francis knows exactly the spot at which to strike to ensure they will hurt the most.… READ MORE

We live in a post-Traditionis Custodes world. It is not surprising, therefore, that it has become more fashionable than ever now for recognize-and-resist traditionalists to try to find all sorts of ways to limit or downplay papal authority, lest they should actually have to submit loyally to the decree their extremely valid “Pope” Francis released this past July 16, which gradually phases out the Traditional Latin Mass.… READ MORE

on Fraternity and Social Friendship
October 3, 2020
The Vatican’s endless text factory has just released another monster of a document: Jorge Bergoglio (a.k.a. “Pope Francis”) has released his third Encyclical Letter, after Lumen Fidei (2013) and Laudato Si’ (2015). It is entitled Fratelli Tutti (“Brothers All”).
In its English version, Fratelli Tutti has 42,994 words. It consists of eight chapters that include a total of 287 numbered paragraphs, and it has 288 footnotes.
