This coming Monday, Jorge Bergoglio will celebrate his tenth anniversary as “Pope Francis”.
To mark this infernal milestone, we are happy to announce a live-streamed special edition of the Catholic Family Podcast on March 13, 2023. It will start at 5:00 pm EDT (2:00 pm PDT; 21:00 UTC; 22:00 CET).
Host Kevin Davis will be joined by co-host Mario Derksen of Novus Ordo Watch and sundry interesting guests. We will review and discuss some of the worst, ugliest, and most ridiculous that has transpired since the apostate Jesuit from Buenos Aires has claimed the papal throne:
Our special guests will include former Novus Ordo priest Fr.… READ MORE
Unhappy Anniversary! Today, March 13, 2019, marks the sixth anniversary of the election of Jorge Mario Bergoglio as head of the Vatican II Sect.
Of course, Novus Ordo Watch was tweeting live at the time, to keep everyone informed as the Smoke of Satan emanated from the conclave chimney. In this post, we will present a select few of the many tweets we sent out on that fateful day. Readers can judge for themselves how much of what we said was downright prophetic.… READ MORE
Benedict XVI’s Mysterious Resignation:
A Reply to Ann Barnhardt
On Nov. 17, 2018, the colorful blogger Ann Barnhardt, a Resignationist since 2016, released a video presentation in which she tries to convince her audience that “Pope” Benedict XVI’s resignation in 2013 was invalid because he is, so she argues, in “substantial error” about the Papacy, and substantial error renders a resignation invalid according to Canon 188 of the 1983 Novus Ordo Code of Canon Law (this same law is also found in the 1917 Catholic Code of Canon Law; see Canon 185). Ergo, Barnhardt reasons, the resignation was not valid and Benedict XVI is the Pope, albeit, so she says, the worst Pope in history.… READ MORE
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
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.
Congratulations, everyone. You have endured 1,826 days of mercy, joy, encounter, tenderness, favelas, and field hospitals; of touching the wounded, caressing the elderly, affirming the marginalized, welcoming migrants, warming hearts, tearing down walls, building bridges, and moving forward. In short: You have lived through 5 years of Jorge Bergoglio as “Pope Francis.”
Those who suspect that Francis must have a double or a twin brother because it is impossible for just one single person to speak as much as he does, we must disappoint: There’s only one, and on Novus Ordo Watch, he’s got his own page:
Joseph Ratzinger Announced Historic
Resignation Five Years Ago Today
It was Monday, February 11, 2013, when Italian journalist Giovanna Chirri became the first person to inform the world of “Pope” Benedict XVI‘s resignation, effective February 28. As the Vatican correspondent for the Italian news outlet ANSA, Chirri was seated among other members of the press to cover on-site the consistory Benedict had convoked and at which he made known his totally unexpected decision to renounce the office of the papacy which he had (falsely) been claiming since April 19, 2005:
Quapropter bene conscius ponderis huius actus plena libertate declaro me ministerio Episcopi Romae, Successoris Sancti Petri, mihi per manus Cardinalium die 19 aprilis MMV commisso renuntiare ita ut a die 28 februarii MMXIII, hora 20, sedes Romae, sedes Sancti Petri vacet et Conclave ad eligendum novum Summum Pontificem ab his quibus competit convocandum esse.
The Dictator Pope:
Explosive New Book takes Inside Look at Francis
An explosive new book concerning the person of Jorge Mario Bergoglio has appeared in English: The Dictator Pope, which promises “[t]he inside story of the most tyrannical and unprincipled papacy of modern times.”
The official book description summarizes the contents thus [updated 19-MAR-2018 for second edition]:
Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio of Argentina was elected pope in 2013 as a liberal and a reformer. In fact, he was neither—except by coincidence. Though he was not well-known within the College of Cardinals that elected him, close observers in his native land already recognized him to be a manipulative politician, skilled at self-promotion, and a disciple of the populist dictator Juan Perón.

Four Years of Chaos Frank:
A Press Review
It was on March 13, 2013, that most people heard of the Argentinian Jesuit Jorge Mario Bergoglio for the very first time. He was presented to the world as “Pope Francis”.
Presumably, most who witnessed the first appearance on the balcony of St. Peter’s Basilica will never forget the unusual experience: There he was, the first papal claimant to take the name “Francis”, clad entirely in white, without the customary red stole for the urbi et orbi blessing, looking at a jubilant crowd. His initial words of buona sera — “good evening” — and his subsequent request for the people gathered in St.… READ MORE
Tomorrow, September 9, Peter Seewald’s last interview book with Joseph Ratzinger (“Pope Emeritus” Benedict XVI) will hit the shelves in Germany. It is entitled Letzte Gespräche (“Final Conversations”). It will appear in English translation on November 3 under the title Last Testament: In His Own Words.
Some articles have appeared in the German and English press giving a preview of the book’s contents. One of the topics Seewald discusses with Benedict XVI, of course, is his resignation. Here are the excerpts of two news blurbs dealing with what Benedict says concerning his resignation:
…he dismissed speculation he may have been blackmailed or pressured into retiring.
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
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.
“A Man, not Canonically Elected, will be raised to the Pontificate… In those days Jesus Christ will send them not a true Pastor, but a Destroyer”
[UPDATE: Some people dispute the authenticity of this prophecy, claiming it was concocted by certain dissident members of the Franciscan order in the 13th century and only subsequently attributed to St. Francis. Whether that be true or false, always keep in mind that ultimately, the case against the Vatican II antipopes is not based on private revelation.]
Shortly before he died in 1226, St. Francis of Assisi called together the members of his order and warned them of great tribulations that would befall the Church in the future, saying:
Act bravely, my Brethren; take courage, and trust in the Lord.
Back in 2014, when Francis had a golden opportunity to 'proclaim the Gospel' to the needy, to those in darkness, to the oppressed who were Muslims migrants -- but he didn't. Instead he told them to read their Koran -- that would help them to move forward:
The man at the top of a church which refuses to have a mission to the Jews says "the Word [of God] is a gift addressed to everyone; therefore we can never restrict its field of action..." - https://www.vatican.va/content/francesco/en/homilies/2023/documents/20230122-domenicadella-paroladidio.html Different audiences get to hear a different gospel! #PopeFrancis
They are trying so hard but it is of no avail: You cannot have it both ways: have Francis be Pope AND do your own thing in religion. As long as you recognize him as Pope, he wins. And an opinion of Fr. Henri LeFloch does not trump papal teaching. #catholic
Kennedy Hall admits he doesn't adhere to Vatican II ecclesiology - Keep that in mind for next time one of his co-religionists asks you, "But what doctrine of Vatican II do we actually reject?" #catholictwitter #catholic
@tonylarosa9 <<< Meanwhile, the possibility of heresy in a papal teaching, even if not ruled out by the logic of non-infallibility, IS ruled out by the Church's teaching on the Papacy. If the Pope could teach something that denies the Faith, he would no longer be a safe guide to salvation.
The abominable Abrahamic Family House in Abu Dhabi is now open for worship - Religious egalitarianism breeds indifferentism and syncretism. This is apostasy! #catholictwitter #catholic #vatican #popefrancis
