‘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

Francis to Hungarian Jesuits: Wanting to go back to pre-Vatican II days is ‘Nostalgic Disease’
‘Pope’ Francis likes nothing better than to share with the world his infinite wisdom on just about anything, especially when it comes to replacing Roman Catholicism with the latest novelties of the “god of surprises”.
Thus, when the Argentinian pseudo-pope embarked on his umpteenth ‘Apostolic Journey’ this past April 28, this time to Hungary, it was clear he would meet with his Jesuit confreres there for a little question-and-answer session, because that has become the custom on his trips. The scheduled get-together took place on Saturday, Apr.… READ MORE

Ratzinger’s posthumous Revenge? Don’t fall for it…
Perhaps we should have seen this coming.
Barely a month after the death of ‘Pope Emeritus’ Benedict XVI (Fr. Joseph Ratzinger) on Dec. 31, 2022, a Novus Ordo religious sister (nun) in Colombia has claimed that the ‘Pope Emeritus’ appeared to her twice in a vision on Feb. 2, 2023, and revealed to her what he called the second part of his spiritual testament (the first having been released to the public the day of his death).… READ MORE

Pseudo-conclave in Rome makes surprising choice…
Alexis Bugnolo’s Fake Conclave elects Successor to Benedict XVI, but you WON’T guess whom!
Self-appointed conclave organizer: Alexis Bugnolo
(ok, so we added the clown nose)
Ladies and gentlemen, Brother Alexis Bugnolo, the self-appointed conclave theologian who has made it his mission to elect a successor to the late Fr. Joseph Ratzinger (“Pope” Benedict XVI), has announced a great joy: Habent Papam! They have a Pope!
Or so they think.

Rethinking Peter Kwasniewski: A Sedevacantist Critique of his Anti-Papal Traditionalism
No Traditionalist when it comes to the Papacy: Philosopher Peter A. Kwasniewski, Ph.D.
Dr. Peter Kwasniewski has been busy “rethinking the Papacy”, and the results are not surprising.
Ever since he first identified, back in 2019, what he calls the “spirit of Vatican I” (that’s Vatican One, referring to the Vatican Council of 1870) as the fundamental problem in the church today “which it will take a mighty exorcism to drive away”, he has not ceased to attack the traditional Catholic teaching on the Papacy in one way or another.… READ MORE

Who was Joseph Ratzinger / Benedict XVI?
While countless commentators are currently singing the praises of the late, oh-so conservative ‘Pope Emeritus’ Benedict XVI up and down the internet, Kevin Davis of the Catholic Family Podcast invited yours truly to discuss the real Joseph Ratzinger, that is, the theologian Ratzinger from the perspective of pre-Vatican II Catholicism.
There is so much to say about the deceased Benedict XVI, but of course only comparatively little can be included in a one-hour podcast interview.
Here are some source links to document the items discussed in the broadcast:

Man refused ‘Communion’ at Ratzinger Funeral (Video)
Today the funeral for ‘Pope Emeritus’ Benedict XVI took place in St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican, with Jorge Bergoglio (‘Pope Francis’) presiding. When it came time for the distribution of the invalid communion hosts, a curious incident occurred — and was caught on video.
A man wearing a hoodie walks up to the rail to receive the ‘Eucharist’, kneels down, and removes the hood from his head, as is proper. He opens his mouth to receive, but the Novus Ordo priest signals his unwillingness to give him the host in that way.… READ MORE

At approximately 8:50 am local Rome time today, pallbearers processed into St. Peter’s Square, Vatican City, carrying a coffin containing the body of Joseph Ratzinger, the man known from 2005 to 2013 as ‘Pope Benedict XVI’.
The five sorrowful decades of the Rosary were then prayed publicly in the square for the deceased, and subsequently the solemn funeral liturgy began, presided over in part by Jorge Bergoglio (‘Pope Francis’) and ‘Cardinal’ Giovanni Battista Re, the Dean of the College of Novus Ordo Cardinals.… READ MORE

Michael Voris: ‘We have viewed the Pope Francis Papacy as very Problematic from Day One’

On Feb. 18, 2022, Michael Voris hosted a special live broadcast on his Church Militant web site entitled “Is Bergoglio really the Pope?”. Not that anyone working for the Detroit-based media operation was beginning to doubt the legitimacy of Francis, but perhaps more and more people in their audience can no longer stomach the “papal” apostate from Buenos Aires.
In our powerful new podcast episode, TRADCAST 033, we take many of Michael Voris’s claims to task.… READ MORE

Our content is typically challenging but is always delivered in an accessible way with a relieving touch of humor, so necessary in our chaotic and bizarre times.
TRADCAST 032 discusses sundry different topics:
In view of the increasing popularity of the idea that Benedict XVI is “still” the Pope (and Francis’ election was invalid), the first segment begins with a look at the Modernism of Joseph Ratzinger, illustrated by his strange ideas on original sin, which are not compatible with the perennial Catholic doctrine on the matter.… READ MORE

Patrick Coffin dumps Francis, reverts to Benedict XVI
Patrick Coffin is the latest big-name individual in the Novus Ordo Church to publicly announce his belief that Benedict XVI’s resignation from the “Papacy” in 2013 was invalid, and therefore Francis is an Antipope (=false pope). This position has received various monikers over the years, such as “Benevacantism”, “Beneplenism”, the “BiP theory” (BiP = Benedict is Pope), and “Resignationism” (our preferred term).
Coffin came to prominence in the conservative “Catholic” world as host of the radio program Catholic Answers Live put out by the high-profile Novus Ordo apologetics org Catholic Answers, founded by Karl Keating and currently run by Christopher Check.… READ MORE
