The Trouble with Jorge:
Semi-Trads at the Breaking Point
The Semi-Traditionalists are reaching their breaking point over “Pope” Francis. Jorge Bergoglio has been putting out so much blasphemous, heretical, and scandalous blather that Christopher Ferrara, the popular Remnant columnist, author, speaker, and retired attorney, can’t write commentaries fast enough to keep up with him.
The next recognize-and-resist self-help conference, scheduled for Sept. 9-11, won’t do much more than simply get the usual people together for their little “we’re the real Catholics” powwow and have exactly zero impact on the Vatican II Sect, which they still claim is the Catholic Church.… READ MORE
The True Third Secret of Fatima?
“A Wicked Council… The Church will Bleed from all Her Wounds”
[Disclaimer: The following text is based on an alleged private revelation that has not been approved (nor condemned) by the Catholic Church. Catholics must exercise great caution with regard to alleged private revelations. In general, we ought to stay away from unapproved private revelations, and we ought not to attach ourselves even to approved private revelations, which are not necessary for salvation and can never be on a par with, much less revise, Catholic doctrine. We present this unapproved alleged private revelation only to help shed greater light on the approved Fatima apparitions of 1917 and the controversy surrounding Fatima’s Third Secret.]… READ MORE

Separating Fact from Fiction

May 13 of this year marked the 99th anniversary of the first apparition of Our Lady of Fatima in 1917. The Blessed Virgin Mary chose to appear to three shepherd children in a field called the Cova da Iria in Fatima, Portugal, on the very day the future Pope Pius XII, Eugenio Pacelli, was consecrated a bishop by Pope Benedict XV in the Sistine Chapel in Rome. It was Pius XII who would later become known as the “Fatima Pope”, establishing the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in 1944 (feast day: Aug.… READ MORE

He died unexpectedly at his office in Ontario on April 29, 2015, a few days short of his 73rd birthday. The apparent cause of death was a heart attack. The following is the message posted by Vennari:

Devotion to Our Lady of Fatima and Her Message
October 13, 2014, marked exactly 97 years since the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to the three peasant children at Fatima in Portugal to once again beg the world to heed Her dire warnings and convert their lives and specifically to pray the Holy Rosary daily.
In this Restoration Radio broadcast, Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI, discusses in great detail the message of Fatima. While it is well assumed that most who will listen to this show are familiar with the essential message of Our Lady of Fatima already, Fr.… READ MORE

Benedict XVI and the “Prophetic Mission of Fatima”
Every so often, someone with a soft spot for the old Modernist Joseph Ratzinger (“Pope” Benedict XVI) digs up a quote from a homily he gave in 2010 (see video above) in which he speaks somewhat cryptically about the apparitions of our Lady at Fatima and the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary:

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!”
Impure Dancing at Future “Pope’s” Liturgy…
With “Cardinal” Jorge Bergoglio
Tango begins at 26:38 mark
“Lift up thy hands against their pride unto the end;
see what things the enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary.”
You can’t make this stuff up; you just can’t. The above video shows two people performing the Tango, an impure dance condemned by Pope St. Pius X, during a “Mass” offered by the then-“Archbishop” of Buenos Aires, “Cardinal” Jorge Bergoglio, the man who now claims to be the Pope of the Catholic Church (“Francis”).
Bergoglio is no stranger to liturgical aberrations and clearly has no care for the sacred nor for sound doctrine (just watch him distribute what he supposedly believes is Holy Communion in this video).… READ MORE
How to tell Aunt Helen…
A Conversation with a Sedevacantist Priest
Tired of reading long and complicated articles on traditionalist issues? Then watch this calm, insightful conversation in which Fr. Anthony Cekada explains very simply why only the sedevacantist position is the truly Catholic position to take with regard to the Vatican II Church and the apostasy it has engendered, and how we can know this for certain. As a former member of the Novus Ordo Church and also the Society of St. Pius X, he narrates his own conversion from a “conservative” Novus Ordo position to sedevacantism.… READ MORE
Italian Magazine Publishes Alleged Text
of True Third Secret of Fatima
The July/August 2013 issue of Chiesa Viva [“Living Church”] magazine is dedicated to what it claims is the true Third Secret of Fatima. It features Dr. Franco Adessa’s article “The Third Secret of Fatima: A Testimony.” According to Adessa, the now-deceased Fr. Luigi Villa, who reportedly had a mandate from Pope Pius XII to uncover and expose Freemasonry in the Catholic Church and to defend her from it, knew from Cardinal Alfredo Ottaviani (d. 1979) that the text published in the German magazine Neues Europa [“New Europe”] in 1963, though not itself the Third Secret, contained all of the sentences of the real Third Secret.… READ MORE
Same Old Junk from The Remnant…
This episode of “The Remnant Underground” by Mr. Michael Matt is nothing more than an agenda-driven twisting of the facts. The Remnant desperately wants to believe in — and push — a Benedict XVI who is a friend and supporter of Fatima and the True Faith and the True Mass, so they use half-truths to paint a picture of Benedict XVI they want you to believe in. The objective facts, however, tell quite a different story. See for yourself:
Lies and Half-Truths vs. Reality
… READ MORE
- Matt claims: Benedict XVI agrees with Traditional Catholics that the Traditional Mass was never abrogated
Truth: Yes, Benedict did say this, but it was a lie: In truth the Traditional Mass was suppressed, which is why you needed an “indult” to be allowed to offer it (see How Benedict Destroys the Traditional Mass)
- Matt claims: Benedict XVI changed “For All” to “For Many” in the New Mass because he agrees that to say “For All” is a lie
Truth: While Benedict did change “For All” (“Pro Omnibus“) back to “For Many” (“Pro Multis“), he did not concede that “For All” is wrong but that it is an “interpretation” rather than a pure translation, which, however, “was and remains very reasonable” – he does not abandon the conciliar theology behind “For All”: See Benedict’s own ridiculous explanation here and compare it to the reason given by the Roman Catechism (1566) for rejecting “For All”: “With reason, therefore, were the words ‘for all’ not used, as in this place the fruits of the Passion are alone spoken of, and to the elect only did His Passion bring the fruit of salvation” (source)
- Matt claims: Benedict, through his example, shows he wants Communion in the Hand to be done away with
Truth: This is a lie.
No Friend of Fatima:
Unspinning Christopher Ferrara’s Defense of Benedict XVI
Forever trying to persuade his readers, and presumably himself, that “Pope” Benedict XVI is “our only friend in the Vatican” – quite in contradiction to his former sarcastic use of the same phrase in reference to the very same Joseph Ratzinger – New Jersey-based attorney Christopher A. Ferrara is still busy claiming that Benedict XVI is a genuine friend of the message of Our Lady of Fatima, specifically of the Third Secret, which, he argues (and Novus Ordo Watch agrees), has only been released in part by the Vatican.
Though it is easy to understand why a man who is a lawyer by profession should habitually write in a rhetorically-persuasive style, desiring to get his readership to agree with his position, it is nonetheless not tolerable that a position should be allowed to continue to be put forth that has been clearly refuted.… READ MORE
