‘In the Name of the Father and of the Holy Spirit’: Bishop omits God the Son from Blessing at Interfaith Prayer Service
On Oct. 27, 2023, at 6:00 pm local time, an interreligious ‘prayer for peace’ event was held in the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in San Luis, Argentina. The event was hosted by the local ordinary, ‘Bishop’ Gabriel Bernardo Barba (b. 1964), who also took part and in fact gave a final blessing of sorts. But more on that in a moment.
On Instagram, the diocese published a photo of the event the very same day (see title image above) and explained who the participants were (please pardon the sometimes obscurely-worded religious affiliations of the individual attendees; the wording is based on an automatic computer translation):

‘Archbishop’ Georg Gänswein is back in the news.
His tell-all book Nothing but the Truth: My Life Beside Benedict XVI, the release of which reportedly made ‘Pope’ Francis furious, hit the shelves in Italy at the beginning of this year. At the time, it was not yet clear when or by whom it would be published in English. Benedict XVI, Joseph Ratzinger, had just died two weeks prior.
But now, on Oct. 23, 2023, St.… READ MORE

Francis Blasts Those Who ‘Talk About Their Vision of Humanity but Never About Jesus’
Jorge Bergoglio’s sense of humor was on display this past Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2023.
As part of his weekly audience ‘catechesis’, which is ironically on “passion for evangelization” and “apostolic zeal” currently, the man whose professional stage name is ‘Pope Francis’ kept a straight face when he warned:

…we risk talking about ourselves, the group to which we belong, a morality or, even worse, a set of rules, but not about Jesus, his love, his mercy. I see this in some new movements that are emerging: they talk about their vision of humanity, they talk about their spirituality and they feel theirs is a new path… But why do you not talk about Jesus?

Vatican again permits Oriental Orthodox Mass
in historic Catholic Basilica in Rome
[Please note: An earlier version of this blog used the label “Eastern Orthodox” rather than “Oriental Orthodox”. Apparently there is a significant difference between the two; however, since both are heretical and schismatical sects, the difference is irrelevant to the point of this post.]
Under the apostate Jesuit Jorge Bergoglio (‘Pope Francis’), it is apparently becoming a common practice now to allow heretics and schismatics to use ancient Catholic basilicas in Rome for their Masses and other liturgical services.… READ MORE

Vatican Prelate accidentally admits Vatican II Ecclesiology denies Unity of the Church

In that role, he was interviewed recently by Rome Reports regarding Jorge Bergoglio’s recent establishment of the ‘Commission of the New Martyrs – Witnesses of the Faith’, which is “a working group at the Dicastery for the Causes of Saints to draw up a catalogue of all Christians – not only Catholics – who have shed their blood to confess Christ in the last quarter of a century” (Vatican News).… READ MORE

Vatican’s Human Fraternity Extravaganza ‘Not Alone’ Flops as No One Shows Up
Getting a front-row seat wasn’t terribly difficult…
Imagine it’s the first-ever World Meeting on Human Fraternity and nobody cares.
That is exactly what happened on Saturday, June 10, in Rome. Under the ironic motto #NotAlone, the event’s organizers and contributors found themselves very much alone as they put on a nearly 5-hour long spectacle in St. Peter’s Square that almost nobody cared to attend.
#NotAlone was Quite Alone
According to the Silere Non Possum blog, “Those few people present were tourists, who didn’t stay, and friends of the Franciscan cardinal”, by whom they mean Mauro Gambetti, who is the ‘Archpriest’ of St.… READ MORE

Historical Tidbit: ‘Pope’ Paul VI permitted active Catholic Participation in Eastern Orthodox Masses
About a month ago, we published an article demonstrating that the Catholic Church teaches that she is infallible not only in her dogmas but also in her universal laws and sacramental rites — not in the sense that these could never be changed, but rather, that they could never be in themselves impious, heretical, sacrilegious, or otherwise harmful.
In his magnificent encyclical letter on the Mystical Body of Christ, Pope Pius XII taught this explicitly:

Certainly the loving Mother [the Church] is spotless in the Sacraments, by which she gives birth to and nourishes her children; in the faith which she has always preserved inviolate; in her sacred laws imposed on all; in the evangelical counsels which she recommends; in those heavenly gifts and extraordinary graces through which, with inexhaustible fecundity she generates hosts of martyrs, virgins and confessors.
See, we told you so…
Francis makes it clear: By Proselytism he means CONVERTING people and that’s wrong!
For the last 10 years or so, Novus Ordo apologists have been bending over backwards trying to defend Jorge Bergoglio’s constant condemnation of “proselytism”. He doesn’t mean convincing people of the true Faith, much less converting them, we were told. Rather, he means pressuring people to convert, using deceptive means to convert them, bullying them into conversion, threatening them with damnation if they don’t convert.
We told you from the very beginning that that is definitely not what Francis means, and this is evident from the context in which he speaks, from the other things he has said, from his general refusal to seek the conversion of anyone, from his lowest common denominator ecumenism, and from the fact that virtually no one in the Novus Ordo Church pressures or bullies anyone into conversion anyway, so where is the need for these relentless tirades against a phantom problem?… READ MORE

Non-Catholic ‘Martyrs’: Francis adds 21 murdered Copts as ‘Saints’ to Roman Martyrology
An icon of the 21 Coptic Orthodox who were murdered by ISIS terrorists in 2015 (created by Tony Rezk)
If you blinked, you probably missed it: Jorge Bergoglio, the Modernist apostate from Buenos Aires who has occupied the Vatican for over a decade now under the stage name ‘Pope Francis’, has just declared 21 non-Catholic (Coptic Orthodox) ‘martyrs’ to be added to the Roman martyrology, which is the official list of martyrs accepted by and venerated in the Latin Church.
Even the Novus Ordo press recognizes that this is a big deal: “A ‘bolt out of the blue’: Pope Francis sets off an ecumenical earthquake”, The Catholic World Report writes; “Unpacking how history changed … with recognition of Coptic martyrs”, Crux explains.… READ MORE
