Bizarre claims in new Interview
Benedict XVI on why he resigned:
‘I couldn’t take the Jet Lag I would get from traveling to World Youth Day!’
The bizarre spectacle that is the aftermath of Benedict XVI’s resignation first announced on Feb. 11, 2013, continues unabated. After recent absurd claims that Benedict XVI had not “fully” resigned from the papacy but was still a “contemplative member” of a “two-tier” Petrine office, today we are getting word that the main reason Benedict decided to throw in the towel was the stressful travel to World Youth Day in Rio. Riiight.

“Cardinal” Ratzinger Disparages Infant Baptism, Questions Catholic Dogma
In his interview book God and the World, “Cardinal” Joseph Ratzinger says the following:
… READ MORE
The question of what it means to say that baptism is necessary for salvation has become ever more hotly debated in modern times. The Second Vatican Council said on this point that men who are seeking for God and who are inwardly striving toward that which constitutes baptism will also receive salvation. That is to say that a seeking after God already represents an inward participation in baptism, in the Church, in Christ.
To that extent, the question concerning the necessity of baptism for salvation seems to have been answered, but the question about children who could not be baptized because they were aborted then presses upon us that much more urgently.
“Cardinal” Ratzinger Denies Catholic Teaching on Original Sin:
For Ratzinger, Original Sin is not a Deprivation of Sanctifying Grace in Human Souls Transmitted by Natural Generation but a Damage in Human Relationships Encountered by Every Human Being
In a Lenten sermon given in 1981 in the cathedral of Munich, Germany, “Cardinal” Joseph Ratzinger said the following:

“In the Genesis story that we are considering, still a further characteristic of sin is described. Sin is not spoken of in general as an abstract possibility but as a deed, as the sin of a particular person, Adam, who stands at the origin of humankind and with whom the history of sin begins.
It’s time for a reckoning…
Comments on the Latest Bp. Fellay Interview — and on the June 29 Press Release
… READ MORE
On June 22, 2016, we were the first English-speaking web site to break the news about Bp. Bernard Fellay’s new interview, published on June 21, on the relations between the Society of St. Pius X and the Vatican. What is puzzling is that virtually no one has picked up on the news since, even though the SSPX Superior General made not a few statements that should raise the eyebrows of anyone who considers himself a real Catholic. Here is our original post on the interview:
Response to Hilary White
Comedy Hour at The Remnant: “Francis is the Pope Until the Pope Says He’s Not”
Peek-a-boo! Is he or isn’t he?
Apparently there is a new policy in place at the semi-traditionalist flagship publication The Remnant: Bloggers can write whatever they please about the Papacy, even if it contradicts the Faith, as long as they don’t endorse Sedevacantism.
Most recent case in point: A blog post by Hilary White (pictured left) entitled, “Francis is the Pope Until the Pope Says He’s Not”. The title offers a good preview of the confused theology that follows in the body of the text, where a copious amount of hot air combines with unorthodox theological ideas to create a dangerous concoction that seeks to make up for a woeful lack of Catholicism.… READ MORE
New Interview with SSPX Superior
“We’ve never wanted to be separated from Rome”; “Vatican never called us Schismatic”; “Rome tacitly approves of our Ordinations”
As things deteriorate rapidly in the Vatican II Sect under Francis, the Society of St. Pius X is more eager than ever to obtain regularization and full recognition by Rome. On Tuesday, June 21, 2016, the SSPX Superior General, Bishop Bernard Fellay, gave an interview to Josef Bruckmoser of the Austrian paper Salzburger Nachrichten.
The one-page interview is now available online, and we have translated it from the original German into English (Bp.… READ MORE
Barnhardt goes Resignationist…
Ann Barnhardt dumps Francis,
seeks Refuge in Benedict XVI
She’s finally figured it out: Francis cannot be the Pope of the Catholic Church. The outspoken colorful controversialist Ann Barnhardt has announced on her web site that she can no longer hold that Francis is or ever was a true Pope, the Vicar of Christ. The reason for Miss Barnhardt’s change of mind is found in the very opening paragraphs of her blog post:

It is now clear to me, and I feel it morally incumbent upon me given my position to publicly state that I believe Jorge Bergoglio, “Francis” to be an Antipope, never having been canonically elected, and that Joseph Ratzinger, Pope Benedict XVI is still the Roman Pontiff.
The True Third Secret of Fatima?
“A Wicked Council… The Church will Bleed from all Her Wounds”
[Disclaimer: The following text is based on an alleged private revelation that has not been approved (nor condemned) by the Catholic Church. Catholics must exercise great caution with regard to alleged private revelations. In general, we ought to stay away from unapproved private revelations, and we ought not to attach ourselves even to approved private revelations, which are not necessary for salvation and can never be on a par with, much less revise, Catholic doctrine. We present this unapproved alleged private revelation only to help shed greater light on the approved Fatima apparitions of 1917 and the controversy surrounding Fatima’s Third Secret.]… READ MORE
Benedict XVI’s secretary speaks
Vatican “Abp.” Gänswein: Since Benedict XVI’s Abdication, there is now a Two-Member “Expanded Papacy”
Apparently, one Modernist Antipope was not enough…
[UPDATE 30-MAY-2016: English translation of complete Ganswein speech now available here]
The craziness in the Novus Ordo Sect just doesn’t stop.
On May 20, 2016, the Gregorian Pontifical University in Rome introduced “Fr.” Roberto Regoli’s new book, Oltre la crisi della Chiesa (“Beyond the Crisis of the Church”), a history of the “pontificate” of Benedict XVI (2005-2013). The book presentation was augmented by a talk given by the Vatican’s “Archbishop” Georg Gänswein, who is both the prefect of the “papal” household under Francis (and was formerly under Benedict XVI) as well as the private secretary of the “Pope Emeritus”, Benedict XVI.… READ MORE
Time for a Reality Check
The Novus Ordo Church and Fatima:
Separating Fact from Fiction

May 13 of this year marked the 99th anniversary of the first apparition of Our Lady of Fatima in 1917. The Blessed Virgin Mary chose to appear to three shepherd children in a field called the Cova da Iria in Fatima, Portugal, on the very day the future Pope Pius XII, Eugenio Pacelli, was consecrated a bishop by Pope Benedict XV in the Sistine Chapel in Rome. It was Pius XII who would later become known as the “Fatima Pope”, establishing the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in 1944 (feast day: Aug.… READ MORE
Fallout from “Amoris Laetitia”
Schism with Benedict XVI as Anti-Pope is Possible

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.… READ MORE

Novus Ordo Bishop: “Not even Martin Luther could have imagined a better Pope than Benedict XVI”

Novus Ordo bishops say the darndest things. At this point, they are so far removed from Catholicism — both historically and theologically — that they can utter the wackiest inanities without blinking.
The Austrian “Catholic” news portal kath.net reports that in late March 2016, a delegation of pilgrims from the German diocese of Regensburg (Ratisbonne) traveled to Rome for the “Jubilee Year of Mercy”. … READ MORE
The Holy Catholic Mass:
How the Vatican II Church transformed the August Sacrifice of the Altar into a Liturgical “Happy Meal”
Nowhere is the apostate nature of the Vatican II religion more evident than in what it has done to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, which is the true and perfect worship which alone is per se acceptable to the Most Holy Trinity. Thick tomes could be — and have been — written on the liturgical changes perpetrated by the Vatican II Sect, and certainly it is beyond the scope of this page to address them all. Rather, on this page we will present an overview of what has changed and then point you to resources that provide further details:
