Real or Fake? Lightning Reportedly Maims Statue of St. Peter in Buenos Aires

The internet is abuzz right now with a report by Resignationist Andrea Cionci, author of The Ratzinger Code (debunked by a Francis adherent here), saying that a statue of St. Peter on the façade of the Sanctuary of Our Lady of the Rosary of St. Nicholas in the province of Buenos Aires, Argentina, was zapped by lightning on Dec. 17 which made its halo and right hand fall off, along with the key it was holding (by which is symbolized the key to the kingdom of heaven; cf.… READ MORE

Rumor Control: Was Ratzinger against the Interreligious Prayer Meetings in Assisi?

‘Archbishop’ Georg Gänswein is back in the news.

His tell-all book Nothing but the Truth: My Life Beside Benedict XVI, the release of which reportedly made ‘Pope’ Francis furious, hit the shelves in Italy at the beginning of this year. At the time, it was not yet clear when or by whom it would be published in English. Benedict XVI, Joseph Ratzinger, had just died two weeks prior.

But now, on Oct. 23, 2023, St.READ MORE

Francis endorses Teilhard de Chardin’s ‘Mass on the World’

His true god was evolution: the French Fr. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, S.J.

On his recent blather tour in Mongolia (Aug. 31 – Sep. 4, 2023), the Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio (‘Pope Francis’) offered some impromptu remarks after presiding over the Novus Ordo worship service (incorrectly termed ‘Holy Mass’) in the capital of Ulaanbaatar on Sep. 3. He took the opportunity to speak favorably of the notorious French Jesuit Fr. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955) and his infamous ‘Mass on the World’, written in 1923:

The Mass is itself a way of giving thanks: “Eucharistía”.

‘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

False Prophet Alert…

The ‘Omega Testament’: Colombian Nun claims to have received explosive Revelations from Benedict XVI in Mystical Vision

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

Podcast Interview:
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:

Kneeling not allowed?
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

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
