Benedict XVI: No Mission to the Jews, just Dialogue
Instead of remaining silently retreated in his little safe house in Vatican City, “hidden from the world”, as he had initially promised, Fr. Joseph Ratzinger — a.k.a. “Pope Emeritus” Benedict XVI — has once again inserted himself into the world of theological discourse. Although he speaks with much greater finesse and academic credibility than his boorish successor, the blasphemies he utters differ at best in degree, not in kind.
The German theological journal Herder Korrespondenz just released its December 2018 edition. On the cover, pictured above, we see Benedict XVI next to the words Die Entgegnung — “The Rejoinder” — because in this issue the retired “Pope” responds to those who had blasted him for an essay published in the July/August 2018 issue of Communio, wherein Ratzinger had dared to assert that “[t]he [Novus Ordo] formula of the ‘never-revoked covenant’ [between God and the Jews] may have been helpful in a first stage of the new dialogue between Jews and Christians, but it is not adequate in the long run to express the magnitude of the reality in a way that is passably appropriate” (source; our translation).… READ MORE
The return of Resignationism…
Antonio Socci rocks Vatican with New Book:
“The Secret of Benedict XVI: Why he is still Pope”
After over five-and-a-half years of the antics of Jorge Bergoglio as “Pope Francis”, many Novus Ordos and semi-traditionalists simply cannot take it anymore and are starting to look for ways to rid themselves of Francis, yet while still trying to avoid the Sedevacantist conclusion. Thus we are witnessing once again the “anything but Sedevacantism” dogma being put into practice.
A few years ago we had already seen a few people embrace the phenomenon we have nicknamed “Resignationism” (see all our posts on the topic here) — the idea that Benedict XVI’s resignation in 2013 was invalid and he is therefore “still” Pope — but it was not accepted by most.… READ MORE

Ratzinger’s Roman Apostasy Symbolism
At a time when “Pope Emeritus” Benedict XVI is once again held in the highest esteem by countless people who are fed up with “Pope” Francis, a little reality check is in order lest we forget that few individuals are more personally responsible for the near-total collapse of Catholicism in our day than the former Joseph Ratzinger.
In 2006, a German publisher released a 48-page booklet entitled Ratzingers römische Apostasie-Symbolik, written by Dr. Wigand Siebel (1929-2014) and Dr. Carl Angermayr. In 2007, the work was translated into English as Ratzinger’s Roman Apostasy Symbolism, and it is this translation Novus Ordo Watch is now excited to make widely available in electronic format, entirely free of charge, with the permission of the translator.… READ MORE

Chaos Frank explains the Sixth Commandment
It is customary for the false popes of the Novus Ordo Sect to offer a catechism lesson during their weekly General Audience. This is the place where “St.” John Paul II, for example, made known his notorious sexology known as the “Theology of the Body” over a span of several years in the early 1980s. Naturally, Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) has retained this custom, as he loves nothing better than spewing his Modernist ideas in front of a large audience.
The series of catechetical instructions Francis is currently offering is on the Ten Commandments.… READ MORE

neutralizes the Catholic Faith
by Francis del Sarto
On May 18, 2018, during his Rome Life Forum keynote address at the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (the Angelicum) in Rome, “Cardinal” Raymond Burke declared: “We cannot fail to observe that the situation which Pope Pius XI described in 1925 has only grown worse in our time, and attempts ever more to infiltrate the life of the Church herself and to corrupt the Bride of Christ by an apostasy from the Apostolic Faith” (see video recording, 12:51ff.… READ MORE

In new 4-Page Testimony, the “Great Accuser” Doubles Down

Just as we were preparing our post on the new bombshell report that some Vatican sources have confirmed the Vigano Testimony but with the added caveat that things are even worse than alleged, yet another major development broke in the case:
The former Vatican nuncio to the United States, “Abp.” Carlo Maria Viganò, has just released a new four-page letter in which he reasserts the truth of the accusations of his original Testimony, justifies his decision to go public, and responds to Francis’ attempts to ignore, dismiss, and defame him.… READ MORE

Benedict XVI: “With the Papa Emeritus I have tried to [be] completely clear that there is only one Pope”
Ever since Benedict XVI announced his resignation on Feb. 11, 2013, the Vatican has been a continually alternating hodgepodge of drama, comedy, freak show, circus, and haunted house of horrors. Not that the Vatican II Church wasn’t already clearly a blasphemous and heretical madhouse before then, but at least it had tried to give an appearance of honor, respectability, and order. At this point, it’s a laughing stock as “Pope” Francis has maneuvered himself into what can only be described as a lame-duck session of the rest of his “papacy”, where each day that passes may bring yet another scandal, confidentiality leak, or other embarrassing development.… READ MORE

Benedict XVI and the Jews:
New Ratzinger Essay on Judaism causes Controversy
In his self-created role as the “contemplative member” of an “expanded papacy”, Fr. Joseph Ratzinger — aka “Pope Emeritus” Benedict XVI — has a lot of time on his hands these days, and he uses some of it to write on theological matters.
Back in 1972, Fr. Ratzinger was very busy with a lot of things, such as arguing for the permissibility of public adulterers to receive Holy Communion in “individual cases”. At the time he also co-founded the theological journal Communio, together with such unsavory characters as Fr.… READ MORE

As this is becoming nothing less than an ecclesiastical Chernobyl, we’re going to start providing daily updates on the day’s developments and links to commentary, in addition to our usual postings on other topics.

Vatican “Archbishop” blabs, accuses Francis of knowing about and covering up McCarrick’s Sex Abuse
Ladies and gentlemen, a bombshell of epic proportions has just hit: The Vatican’s former nuncio to the United States, “Archbishop” Carlo Maria Viganò, has decided to take Francis’ talk about transparency seriously and has released an 11-page tell-all letter in which he says what he knows about sex abuse and cover-up. What makes the missive particularly explosive is the fact that Viganò mentions precise details and is not afraid to name names. The individual of the highest rank accused by Viganò is: “Pope” Francis himself!… READ MORE

The Day John Paul II blasphemed Jesus Christ and St. John the Baptist
A saint he ain’t: “Pope” John Paul II in a file photo dated Dec. 8, 2004
These days we hear a lot about blasphemy and heresy being committed by Jorge Bergoglio, the man better known by his stage name “Pope Francis”. Because of this, many good-willed but misled souls reminisce about Francis’ immediate predecessors, Benedict XVI (2005-2013) and John Paul II (1978-2005). The truth is, however, that when it comes to heresy and blasphemy, Francis is merely continuing a tradition begun by his Modernist forerunners.… READ MORE

Schism Ahead: Retired Novus Ordo Bishop René Gracida calls for New Conclave
On his blog Abyssus Abyssum Incovat (“Deep calls on deep”; cf. Ps 41:8), the 94-year-old retired “bishop” of Corpus Christi, Texas, Fr. René Henry Gracida, has published a post calling for all remaining “legitimate cardinals” to get together and elect a Pope. This news story is huge.
Although he bases his reasoning mostly on the (invalid) legislation regarding papal elections promulgated by “Pope” John Paul II in 1996 (the constitution Universi Dominici Gregis) and arrives at the invalidity of the papal election of Jorge Bergoglio on such grounds, the really significant point is that for the first time ever, a high-ranking member of the Novus Ordo hierarchy has announced his conviction that the current occupant of the papal throne is not in fact the true Roman Pontiff, and that a conclave must be called to elect one:

So, what happens if a group of Cardinals who undoubtedly did not participate in any acts of disobedience against Universi Dominici Gregis were to meet, confer and declare that, pursuant to Universi Dominici Gregis, Monsignor Bergoglio is most certainly not a valid Roman Pontiff.
