Recognize-and-OBEY is the Traditional Catholic Teaching
The sedevacantist blogger Steven Speray has recently released an important blog post we are happy to republish on this web site, with his permission. It concerns the foundational belief of those who try to be traditional Catholics while believing the “Popes” after Pius XII to be valid and true Vicars of Christ — the so-called “recognize-and-resist” position (R&R).
Pope Pius XI Squashes the Recognize-and-Resist Position
by Steve Speray (Aug. 27, 2019)
Can the faithful recognize and resist the pope? I dealt with this question in a 2015 article. However, I recently stumbled upon some teachings from Pope Pius XI that castigate the recognize-and-resist theology.… READ MORE
It’s the feast of the spirit of Vatican II!
Happy New Pentecost!
Some things are so absurd that it is best to leave them uncommented — photos and videos speak eloquently enough. The liturgical loony bin of Maria Geburt (Nativity of Mary) Church in Aschaffenburg, Germany, is such a case.
In 2013, the pastor of the church, Mr. Markus Krauth, published a video clip showing a “liturgical performance” for the feast of Pentecost. Few people will be able to endure this to the very end:
For those who were inspired by this profound spiritual experience, we also have a “Pentecost dance” from the same
What you have witnessed is the perfect embodiment of the religion of the Second Vatican Council, the disastrous gathering that “Pope” John XXIII repeatedly referred to as a “new Pentecost” (see, for example, “Prayer of Pope John XXIII to the Holy Spirit for the Success of the Ecumenical Council”, in Walter Abbott, The Documents of Vatican II [New York, NY: Guild Press, 1966], p.… READ MORE
Chagall’s ‘White Crucifixion’…
“May His Name Be Blotted Out”:
Francis’ Favorite Painting contains Jewish Blasphemy against Jesus Christ
“Cardinal” Bergoglio wears the kippah at a Jewish event in Buenos Aires
This story isn’t new, and we’ve covered it here before, but it bears repeating, especially as there are many people now who have just recently come to see who and what Jorge Bergoglio really is, the man falsely considered to be the Pope of the Catholic Church by most.
In the 2010 interview book El Jesuita: Conversaciones con Jorge Bergoglio, the then-“Cardinal” Bergoglio revealed that his favorite painting is the White Crucifixion by Jewish artist Marc Chagall, painted in 1938.… READ MORE

“We Are The World” and other Blasphemies at Francis’ Interreligious Peace Meeting in Sofia
[UPDATE 07-MAY-2019: Prelates of the Orthodox religion refused to attend the meeting.]
On Apr. 10, 2015, we told you that Jorge Bergoglio’s religion is basically a theological version of the famous song We Are The World, although the word “theological” was perhaps too generous.
The Jesuit pretend-pope is currently in the middle of a
blather tour “Apostolic journey” to Bulgaria and North Macedonia. Today, May 6, he participated in an interreligious prayer meeting for peace in the Bulgarian capital of Sofia, together with Orthodox, Armenians, Protestants, Jews, and Muslims (see photos here).… READ MORE

A quick Refutation of Austen Ivereigh’s outrageous Tweet defending Francis
It does not happen too often that we publish an entire blog post criticizing a single tweet, but this is one of those times.
Austen Ivereigh is a British writer who has been one of Francis’ admirers and cheerleaders from the very beginning. In 2014, he published a comprehensive biography of the man otherwise known as Jorge Bergoglio entitled, The Great Reformer: Francis and the Making of a Radical Pope.
In late 2016, Ivereigh attempted to vindicate Francis’ apostatic execration Amoris Laetitia by looking at “concrete cases.”… READ MORE
A Bergoglian Good Friday…
The Passion of Man:
Francis’ Anthropocentric Stations of the Cross
On Good Friday, Catholics commemorate the Passion and Death of Jesus Christ, the only Way by which salvation can be obtained (see Jn 3:16-18; Jn 14:6; Acts 4:12).
One of the most salutary and beautiful acts of devotion in which to engage on Good Friday is the richly-indulgenced Stations of the Cross (also called the Way of the Cross, Via Crucis, or Via Dolorosa), which consists of prayers and meditations on each of the fourteen stations of Christ’s holy Passion, beginning with the unjust sentence of death rendered by Pontius Pilate and concluding with the placing of the Body of Jesus in the sepulcher.… READ MORE

Great news, everyone: It is time again for the quarterly Francis Watch!
Novus Ordo Watch is pleased to sponsor the phenomenal podcast program Francis Watch, in which host Stephen Heiner of True Restoration analyses with his sedevacantist guests, Bishop Donald Sanborn and Fr.

“Jesus Clock” – Blasphemous Art in Austrian Church
Ladies and gentlemen, there is not much that needs to be said in this post. The pictures and the video clip tell the story well enough. The Modernist occupiers of the Catholic churches of Austria have once again installed sacrilegious and blasphemous art. This time, the crime scene is not Vienna but Innsbruck, where “Bishop” Hermann Glettler — appointed, of course, by “Pope” Francis — is excited to have two new “art” installations: one inside the 18th-century Cathedral of St.… READ MORE

Francis lies to Athanasius Schneider, tells him he meant God wills Diversity of Religions merely Permissively
Is that a Masonic handshake? Just asking…
Last Friday, Mar. 1, it was time again for the quinquennial ad limina visit of the Novus Ordo bishops of Kazakhstan and Central Asia. Canon Law stipulates that diocesan bishops report in person to the Pope every five years to inform him of the state of their dioceses and discuss any problems and concerns with him (see Canons 340-342 of the Catholic 1917 Code; Canons 399-400 of the Novus Ordo 1983 Code).… READ MORE

Francis blasphemes, says Catholic Church has been “Caught in Flagrant Adultery”
Today Jorge Bergoglio — the Jesuit apostate currently pretending to be the Pope of the Catholic Church — met with the clergy of Rome at the Archbasilica of St. John Lateran. As always, he had plenty to say.
The full text of his remarks has not yet been made available in English, but the Italian original is available here. [UPDATE 11-MAR-2019: Complete English translation now released.] A report on the meeting in English can be found at Vatican Insider, but the entire talk is not of interest.… READ MORE

Ark of Apostasy:
Why Francis’ Interreligious Fraternity Document does Not Admit of an Orthodox Interpretation
The apostate Jesuit Jorge Bergoglio — more commonly known by his stage name “Pope Francis” — caused a ruckus last week when he co-signed a document on “human fraternity” with Sunni Muslim Imam Ahamad Al-Tayyib declaring that God wills there to be a plurality and diversity of religions. We covered this in our post “Apostasy in Abu Dhabi: Francis says God wills Diversity of Religions”.
Just before the signing of the joint declaration, Francis gave a lengthy speech in which he called all participants of the interreligious conference he was attending to “enter together as one family into an ark which can sail the stormy seas of the world: the ark of fraternity.”… READ MORE

Apostasy in Abu Dhabi:
Francis says God wills Diversity of Religions

“Pope” Francis is currently visiting the United Arab Emirates (UAE), a very brief trip that will conclude tomorrow, Feb. 5. The main objective of the visit has been to attend an interreligious meeting on “human brotherhood” at The Founder’s Memorial in the capital of Abu Dhabi and sign a joint declaration with the Grand Imam there. This Francis did today.
Before he took part in the interfaith conference, however, the Argentinian pseudo-pope paid a visit to the Crown Prince of Abu Dhabi and held a closed-door meeting with the members of the Muslim Council of Elders in the Grand Mosque of Sheik Zayed.… READ MORE

Horrid Adoration Ceremony at World Youth Day Vigil Service
Covering the horrid theological and liturgical junk the Vatican II Sect puts out on a daily basis, one gets used to a lot, but there are times when you just want to jump out of your chair and yell, “No way! They can’t be serious!”
Today was such a day.
“Pope” Francis is currently spreading his Masonic-Naturalist poison in Panama on the occasion of World Youth Day (see our extensive coverage here). Whereas yesterday evening saw a Novus Ordo version of the Stations of the Cross (with dancers, of course!),… READ MORE

“A Dream Named Jesus”
– Bergoglio blathers at Youth in Panama
Yesterday, Jan. 24, was only the first full day of Jorge Bergoglio’s trip to Panama City for World Youth Day, but the man more commonly known by his stage name “Pope Francis” wasted no time unloading truckloads of verbiage on his hapless audiences, inundating them with thinly-veiled Naturalist, psycho-philosophical bromides and meaningless verbal clutter.
His first address was to government authorities, diplomats, and representatives of society, and its verbal highlights included such stunning concepts as:
- land of convocation
- land of dreams
- hub of hope
- gaze towards others
- vital horizons
- right to the future
- creative dynamism
- culture of transparency
…you get the idea.… READ MORE
