Enough with all the globe-trotting…

Francis cracks down on “Bp.” Athanasius Schneider, orders him to reduce his traveling abroad

[UPDATE 08-NOV-2018 01:17 UTC: The German paper Die Tagespost reports that “Bp.” Schneider says the Vatican has merely asked him to ensure that his travels outside his diocese do not exceed the 30 days’ limit legislated in canon law. He has not been censured or forbidden from traveling. UPDATE 16:52 UTC: Schneider speaks to Life Site to explain the situation.]

We all know that “Pope” Francis is a big friend of migration, but even he has his limits when it comes to tolerating persistent moving about.

Chaos Frank explains the Sixth Commandment

It is customary for the false popes of the Novus Ordo Sect to offer a catechism lesson during their weekly General Audience. This is the place where “St.” John Paul II, for example, made known his notorious sexology known as the “Theology of the Body” over a span of several years in the early 1980s. Naturally, Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) has retained this custom, as he loves nothing better than spewing his Modernist ideas in front of a large audience.

The series of catechetical instructions Francis is currently offering is on the Ten Commandments.

Francis as a Gargoyle:
Cologne Cathedral now features “Papal” Grotesque

Photo credit: Herbert Bucco

No, this is not fake news. This is not a Halloween joke. You couldn’t make it up if you got paid to: The Cathedral of St. Peter in Cologne, Germany, has added a new gargoyle to its facade, and it represents none other than the world’s chief apostate, Mr. Jorge Bergoglio, otherwise known by his stage name, “Pope Francis.”

Usually gargoyles are made in the form of notorious sinners, demons, or animals. A standard dictionary definition is: “a grotesquely carved figure of a human or animal”, and “a spout, terminating in a grotesque representation of a human or animal figure with open mouth, projecting from the gutter of a building for throwing rain water clear of a building” (source).

Vatican Synod proposes “Certification Systems” for Web Sites to counter “Fake News”

You have to admit: The Modernists in Vatican City have a sense of humor. The final document of their oh-so-important “Youth Synod”, which has happily been released only in Italian so far, includes the following paragraph (translation by Rorate Caeli):

146. The Synod hopes that in the Church appropriate official bodies for digital culture and evangelization are established at appropriate levels, which, with the indispensable contribution of young people, promote ecclesial action and reflection in this environment. Among their functions, in addition to promoting the exchange and dissemination of good practices at a personal and community level, and to develop adequate tools for digital education and evangelization, could also a [sic] manage certification systems of Catholic sites, to counter the spread of fake news regarding the Church, and looking for ways to persuade public authorities to promote increasingly stringent policies and tools for the protection of minors on the web.

A reality check for Burke, Schneider & Co.

Against the “Loyal Opposition”:

How Recognize-and-Resist Traditionalism
neutralizes the Catholic Faith

by Francis del Sarto

On May 18, 2018, during his Rome Life Forum keynote address at the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (the Angelicum) in Rome, “Cardinal” Raymond Burke declared: “We cannot fail to observe that the situation which Pope Pius XI described in 1925 has only grown worse in our time, and attempts ever more to infiltrate the life of the Church herself and to corrupt the Bride of Christ by an apostasy from the Apostolic Faith” (see video recording, 12:51ff.

Francis endorses Latin American “Youth Cross”

What you see above is the official cross of the Pastoral Juvenil Latinoamericana (Latin American Youth Ministry). Yesterday, Oct. 17, it was presented at the Vatican during the Youth Synod that is taking place there until Oct. 28, and Francis wasted no time putting it around his neck. The following photo was published on the Synod 2018 Facebook page:

This “youth cross” exudes all the spiritual maturity of a toddler — it looks like it was put together by a two-year-old playing with foam play mats.

Montini now a “saint” in the Vatican II Church…

A Tribute to “Saint” Paul VI

It has finally happened: The apostate Vatican II Sect has officially declared yet another one of its false popes to be a “saint of the Catholic Church.” This time, it was Bp. Giovanni Battista Montini, “Pope” Paul VI (1897-1978). He was “canonized” in St. Peter’s Square today, Oct. 14, together with six others, including the social activist “Abp.” Óscar Arnulfo Romero y Galdamez (1917-1980) of San Salvador, El Salvador.

The following two videos show, first, a brief summary of today’s event in the Vatican and then the full canonization ceremony presided over by “Pope” Francis:

The formula which Francis used to “canonize” Montini and the others is the following (in Latin):

For the honour of the Blessed Trinity, the exaltation of the Catholic faith and the increase of the Christian life, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, and of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and our own, after due deliberation and frequent prayer for divine assistance, and having sought the counsel of many of our brother Bishops, we declare and define Blessed Paul VI, Oscar Arnulfo Romero Galdámez, Francis Spinelli, Vincent Romano, Mary Catherine Kasper, Nazaria Ignacia of Saint Teresa of Jesus March Mesa and Nunzio Sulprizio to be Saints and we enroll them among the Saints, decreeing that they are to be venerated as such by the whole Church.

It’s a Stang: Francis opened Vatican Youth Synod with Sorcerer’s Staff

A few days ago we reported on Francis’ opening of the Youth Synod in the Vatican, which is scheduled to conclude on Oct. 28. The pastoral staff, called a ferula, that Francis used represented a new low in post-Vatican II liturgical absurdity. We commented that it looked like a hybrid between a slingshot and a barbecue fork, and indeed it does. However, research by others has now brought to light that this “thing” is more than just another Modernist piece of junk — in fact, it is downright Satanic.

Vatican issues lackluster Statement on McCarrick Investigation

If this is Francis’ great response to the Vigano accusations, it cannot be taken seriously: The Vatican has just released a Bollettino with information about the former “Cardinal” Theodore McCarrick, credibly accused of sexual abuse. Here is the full text:

After the publication of the accusations regarding the conduct of Archbishop Theodore Edgar McCarrick, the Holy Father Pope Francis, aware of and concerned by the confusion that these accusations are causing in the conscience of the faithful, has established that the following be communicated:

In September 2017, the Archdiocese of New York notified the Holy See that a man had accused former Cardinal McCarrick of having abused him in the 1970s.

Ready to toast some marshmallows?

The long wait is finally over: After three painful years without knowing what the god of surprises might want to reveal to Club Francis next, the latest and greatest Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops is back in session! In a last-minute showdown, the online petition circulated by The Remnant to stop the synod could not prevent the Vatican assembly from proceeding as scheduled.

On the morning of Oct. 3, 2018, Antipope Francis kicked off what is more commonly known as the “Youth Synod”, since the official theme of the three-week gathering of Modernist pseudo-bishops is “young people, the faith, and vocational discernment”.
