Dynamite lecture on the Catholic crisis!

Eclipse of the Church: The Case for Sedevacantism

During this year’s Fatima Conference hosted by the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen (CMRI) in Spokane, Washington, Mr. Mario Derksen, pictured below, delivered a compelling 79-minute lecture making the case for Sedevacantism in a way you may not have heard before.

Instead of going through heaps of detailed theological arguments, the speaker presented the “big picture”:

The Catholic Church was founded by our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ as the indefectible Ark of Salvation that is nothing less than His very own Mystical Body. Just as Christ the Lord cannot fail to be “the way, and the truth, and the life” (Jn 14:6), neither can His Mystical Body fail to be “the pillar and ground of the truth” (1 Tim 3:15).… READ MORE

Questions & Answers on the Sister Lucy Truth project…

Was Sister Lucy of Fatima replaced with an Impostor?
An Interview with Dr. Peter Chojnowski

Ladies and gentlemen:

Yes, it is tiring. It is tiring to constantly have to question whether what one sees is real or fake. We live in a world in which there is a fake “Catholic” church with a fake pope and, it is pretty certain, also a fake Sister Lucia dos Santos of Fatima.

If you’re ever tempted to throw in the towel, pray and look around: This world is going crazier by the day, because it is ever more determinedly departing from its Creator and Lord and thus distancing itself from true Life, true Love, and genuine sanity.… READ MORE

New book proves it was neither an illusion nor a hoax!

The Miracle of the Sun at Fatima was Real:
Scientific Confirmation

On October 13, 1917, approximately 70,000 people gathered in a field known as the Cova da Iría in Fatima, Portugal, to witness a spectacular miracle that a little shepherd girl had told them the Blessed Virgin Mary would perform on that day. At the precise time predicted, for approximately ten minutes, there occurred what has become known as the “Miracle of the Sun”, described as “extraordinary solar activity, such as the Sun appearing to ‘dance’ or zig-zag in the sky, careen towards the Earth, or emit multicolored light and radiant colors” (Wikipedia).… READ MORE

The ‘Sister Lucy Truth’ project explained

Sr. Lucia of Fatima and the Woman who Replaced Her

For years the Thomist philosopher Dr. Peter Chojnowski (aka “RadTrad Thomist”) has been busy gathering data for professional evaluation by accredited and recognized scientific experts to determine the truth regarding the rumors and corresponding circumstantial evidence suggesting that the Fatima seer Sister Lucia dos Santos, to whom Our Lady appeared in 1917, was replaced by an impostor some time after the death of Pope Pius XII in 1958.

To that end, Chojnowski even established a tax-exempt non-profit organization called Sister Lucy Truth in 2017.… READ MORE

Seriously now…

Why would Anybody be a Sedevacantist?!

Despite over seven years of the walking disaster that is Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”), there are still people in the world who seriously wonder why anybody would be a sedevacantist; and decades of misinformation (usually propagated by critics of the position) and poor education (often due to scarce resources) certainly haven’t helped things.

Novus Ordo Watch tries to offer a much-needed corrective to this lamentable state of affairs, and in that spirit we would like to draw everyone’s attention to the following video interview with the well-known sedevacantist priest Fr. Anthony Cekada, who passed away just last month.… READ MORE

Reinhard meets his hero…

Marx meets Marx: “Archbishop” of Munich poses with Statue of Founder of Communism

The German city of Trier recently put up a statue of Karl Marx (1818-1883), the founder of Communism.

Trier is the birthplace of this notorious revolutionary, whose erroneous philosophy and dangerous, anti-Catholic ideology is historically responsible for the deaths of roughly 100 million people in the world. (To get any idea of how many dead bodies that is, look at the one million dots on this page and mentally multiply it by 100 — if you can.) Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s The Gulag Archipelago tells the horrific inside story of Soviet Communism, which would have been impossible without Karl Marx first delivering the ideological blueprint.… READ MORE

Infernal Art and Architecture in the Vatican

The Vatican’s Hell Hall:
The Weird Mysteries of the Paul VI Audience Hall

Darkness Visible: Eerie, shrieking skull-like faces seem to peer out menacingly from the base 0f La Resurrezione, an eight ton sculpture, as “Pope” Francis speaks during an audience on November 21, 2015 at the Paul VI Audience Hall at the Vatican. It is only one of the many bizarre things associated with this auditorium. (image: Getty Images/AFP / rights-managed)

G.K. Chesterton once referred to architecture as “the most practical and the most dangerous of the arts.”… READ MORE

The program is to be aired on Aug. 11 of this year, in connection with the official release of the new movie Fatima (watch trailer here), which will begin showing in theaters on Aug.… READ MORE

As always, it is loaded with real traditional Catholicism, hard-hitting refutations of various errors, and razor-sharp analysis. Our content is typically challenging but is always delivered with a relieving touch of humor.

TRADCAST 025 consists of two separate segments. First we evaluate Dan Marcum’s effort to paint Francis as an “anti-liberal”, and in the process we examine the the Modernist strategy of using ambiguity and contradiction in order to spread heresy more effectively and with impunity.… READ MORE

Bursting a beloved bubble…

Benedict XVI and the “Prophetic Mission of Fatima”:
The Rest of the Story

Every so often, someone with a soft spot for the old Modernist Joseph Ratzinger (now “Pope Emeritus” Benedict XVI) digs up a quote from a homily he gave in 2010 (see video here) in which he spoke somewhat cryptically about the apparitions of Our Lady at Fatima and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary. His exact words were:

We would be mistaken to think that Fatima’s prophetic mission is complete. Here there takes on new life the plan of God which asks humanity from the beginning: “Where is your brother Abel […] Your brother’s blood is crying out to me from the ground!”

Web site revealing evidence launched…

The Real and the False Sister Lucy of Fatima:
The Scientific Evidence is here!

Not the same person: the real Sr. Lucy, left, vs. the impostor

On Aug. 1, 2018, we published a post announcing that scientific evidence had been gathered for the first time that proves that the woman commonly accepted as Sr. Lucy of Fatima in the past few decades is not in fact the real Sr. Lucy (Lúcia de Jesus Rosa dos Santos) to whom Our Lady appeared at Fatima, Portugal, in 1917, and again at Tuy in 1929.

Yesterday, Mar. 25, the web site Sister Lucy Truth was launched.… READ MORE

Want Catholic Advice? Don’t Ask Father Albert

Until the sudden death of “Fr.” Nicholas Gruner in 2015, the Fatima Center had a TV program called Your Questions Answered by Father Gruner.
