A high price to pay…

Vatican issues COVID Injection Commemorative Coin

It is no secret that Vatican City is currently strapped for cash. Indeed, even a “poor church for the poor”, which the Argentinian Jesuit Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) has been promoting, has its price.

Just a few days ago, on Aug. 3, 2022, the Italian-language Vatican watch blog Silere Non Possum reported that in order to alleviate the Vatican’s financial woes a bit, ice-cream is now being sold in the courtyard of the Basilica of Saint Mary Major in Rome. What makes the whole matter worse is that the courtyard is fenced in and can only be accessed through the church.… READ MORE

Francis to Vatican Ecumenists: Catholics need Protestants!


Seated in a wheelchair, Francis speaks on May 6, 2022

These are tough times for Catholic Answers and Novus Ordo apologists in general, because the utter theological rubbish that constantly emanates from the apostate mouth of Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) simply defies belief.

A great example is found in the speech the false pope gave to the participants at the plenary meeting for the so-called Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity this past Friday.

The full text has been released by the Vatican in both English and the original Italian, and it is loaded with fireworks:

This address came on the heels of another incredible statement the pseudo-pope made to the Eastern Orthodox patriarch of Moscow recently, namely: “We are Shepherds of the Same Holy Flock of God”.… READ MORE

Distorting the Gospel, lest souls be saved…

Naturalize to Neutralize: How Francis slyly deprives the Gospel of its Supernatural Character

Every Sunday, the Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) prays the Angelus from a window of the Apostolic Palace. Before its recitation, he typically delivers homiletic remarks on the Gospel of the day, and afterwards, he greets the people in attendance, mentions prayer requests, and comments on current affairs.

So too on Sunday, Mar. 20, 2022 (video here).

In a separate post, we already critically examined his post-Angelus comments that day about the war in Ukraine being “sacrilegious because it goes against the sacredness of human life….”… READ MORE

When Catholics disagree with each other…

The Vaccine Controversy:
A Presentation of Two Sides

We live in times that are evil, bizarre, and confusing. Few people reading this blog will dispute this. What makes matters incredibly more difficult is not having a Pope to provide authoritative guidance, especially for issues that affect every single Catholic in one way or another. The decades-long state of sede vacante in the Church is a tremendous cross for Catholics to bear.

As many of our readers may know — and many may not — is that a disagreement has recently become public between two sedevacantist bishops, His Excellencies Daniel Dolan and Donald Sanborn, with regard to the so-called vaccines for COVID-19 (commonly called “Coronavirus”).… READ MORE

Lexington’s Rainbow Bishop has Cathedral Deacon announce Rector and Vicar aren’t Vaccinated


Mirror, mirror on the wall, who’s the wokest of them all?

The Franciscan apostate John Stowe (b. 1966) has been playacting “Roman Catholic bishop” of Lexington, Kentucky, since 2015. Given his job performance so far, he seems to be vying for the distinct honor of worst Novus Ordo bishop in the United States — not an easy task, considering all the contenders!

Yesterday, Sep. 12, 2021, “Bp.” Stowe ordered an announcement to be read after the Novus Ordo worship service (still incorrectly called “Mass” by some conservatives in the Vatican II Church) in his cathedral.… READ MORE

Pope Pius XII on the Moral Limits of Medical Treatment

On Sep. 14, 1952, Pope Pius XII gave an address to the First International Congress on the Histopathology of the Nervous System.

In it, the Holy Father speaks to scientists and doctors about the moral limits of medical research and treatment, specifically with regard to new methods, procedures, and technologies being tried. Pope Pius also addresses the question of what rights the patient has over his own body and psyche, what rights the doctor has over the patient, and, perhaps most importantly of all, what rights the lawful public authority has over individuals in view of the common good — and doesn’t have.… READ MORE

Anticipating Antichrist: In World Migrant Day Message, Francis hints at “Messianic Future” of Naturalist Heaven on Earth

Few things allow the Argentinian apostate Jesuit and professional papal pretender Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) to do his part to advance the globalist New World Order agenda more effectively than the topic of migrants and refugees. It allows him to exploit the natural human desire to help those in need by inculcating in people his pseudo-Catholic Masonic concepts of liberty, equality, fraternity, and open borders, thus placing the temporal over the eternal, the natural over the supernatural, man over Christ.… READ MORE

Vatican HELLth Conference:
Interview with Aerosmith Rocker Joe Perry

(We have modified this screenshot to make the moderator a bit more modest than she actually was.)

The Novus Ordo Vatican is currently conducting a three-day virtual “health” conference whose primary stated goal is to “[u]nite people and promote a culture of collaboration by stimulating an open dialogue and encouraging an interdisciplinary approach to tackle major health care challenges around the globe.” The event is intriguingly entitled: “Exploring the Mind, Body & Soul: Unite to Prevent & Unite to Cure.”

The virtual event began yesterday and will conclude tomorrow, May 8.… READ MORE

The Francis Show in Iraq:

Bergoglio’s “Apostolic Journey” of Mar. 5-8, 2021

After more than 15 months since his last trip outside the Vatican or Italy, the Jesuit apostate Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) embarked on yet another Masonic blather tour deceptively marketed as an “Apostolic Journey” of the “Holy Father.” This time, Francis visited the land of ancient Babylon, the Republic of Iraq, which is 98% Muslim. Interestingly enough, it was his 33rd visit abroad.

On this page you will find all the major links you need to stay informed about the false pope’s visit to the embattled Asian nation.… READ MORE

The COVID Crisis: Advice for Traditional Catholics from Fr. Stephen McKenna and Dr. Daniel Stanislowski

Frequent visitors to this web site may recall that in late 2020, we published a post on the morality of vaccinations. It featured an episode of True Restoration‘s podcast program in which Fr. Stephen McKenna laid out and explained the principles of Catholic morality that govern the use of vaccines:

Although released later in the year, the episode had actually been recorded in January of 2020, weeks before Coronavirus/ COVID-19 was an issue in most parts of the world; wherefore it did not address the topic of COVID-19 specifically, much less that of the COVID-19 vaccines that are now available.… READ MORE

An indelible character of a different kind?

Bergoglio’s Field Hospital has arrived: COVID Shots administered in Irish Hospital Chapel closed for Sacraments

Francis has long dreamed of his Modernist sect being a “field hospital” that treats the “wounds” of its people — he talks about it every so often (for example, in 2013 | 2015 | 2019). In the town of Waterford, Ireland, that has now come true in a more literal sense that he probably anticipated.

The University Hospital Waterford comes with a “Roman Catholic” chapel on its grounds, under the care of the Novus Ordo diocese of Waterford and Lismore.… READ MORE

Bergoglian Naturalism at full throttle…

In Year-End Homily read by “Cardinal” Re, Francis repudiates Supernatural Purpose to Suffering and Death

As the year 2020 came to a close, it was a given that one man in particular would have something to say: Mr. Jorge Bergoglio, otherwise known by his stage name, “Pope Francis.”

Although not physically present himself due to a painful flare-up of sciatica, the scheduled Bergoglian message still reverberated in St. Peter’s Basilica as it was read by “Cardinal” Giovanni Battista Re (pictured above) at the Vespers ceremony on Dec. 31.

In his sermon, not only did Francis put forward his typical Naturalism, which was to be expected; he explicitly disavowed any supernatural purpose to the Coronavirus pandemic (whether it ever was a genuine pandemic is another question that is not of interest here).… READ MORE

Apostasy in Latin: Modernist Fr. Reginald Foster, Vatican’s Top Latin Expert, dies on Christmas Day


Fr. Reginald Foster (1939-2020) gave up wearing his collar long time ago…

Christmas Day saw the unexpected passing of Fr. Reginald Thomas Foster, O.C.D. (1939-2020), apparently from complications associated with COVID-19. The name of the discalced Carmelite friar probably does not ring a bell with most people, but for decades he was a most important individual in Vatican City. “Reggie”, as he liked to be called, was the foremost living authority on the Latin language, certainly in the Vatican II Church and probably in the entire world.… READ MORE
