One Ring to Fool them All:
Francis and the Kissing of the Piscatory Ring

The Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio proved himself to be the lord of the ring this past Monday, Mar. 25, in Loreto, Italy, where he visited the Basilica della Santa Casa (Basilica of the Holy House) for the Feast of the Annunciation.

After the Novus Ordo worship service, Francis received clergy and laity, who were lined up to greet him one by one, many of whom kissed his hand and/or his ring (the so-called “Ring of the Fisherman” or “Piscatory Ring”). After about ten minutes, Francis suddenly began to withdraw his hand everytime someone tried to kiss it or the ring.

Response to Paul Folbrecht…

Peace in the Crisis?
Catholic Family News Promotes a Dangerous Tranquility
 (PART 1)

by Francis del Sarto

Last fall the popular semi-traditionalist propaganda outlet Catholic Family News published the first installment of a three-part article series by Paul Folbrecht entitled “Finding Peace in the Crisis”. The thrust of it is the standard recognize-and-resist (R&R) fare: namely, that as grim as the situation is for today’s adherents of the Vatican II Church, it’s not without historical precedent and has even been warned about by the Church in ages past, so there’s definitely no need to panic.

The Francis Papacy Test:
Find out if Jorge Bergoglio is what he claims to be

These days a lot of people are cranking out articles, blog posts, tweets, and videos telling us how certain it is the apostate Argentinian Jesuit Jorge Bergoglio is the Pope of the Catholic Church.

One of the more popular arguments of late has been that universal acceptance of him by “the Church” provides an infallible guarantee that he’s the Vicar of Christ, since they all agree that he is the Pope. But who is the “they” that constitute “the Church” in their minds?

Pseudo-papal sicko!

For the Transfiguration, “Pope” Francis manages to bring up Sadomasochism

This past Sunday, Mar. 17, was the Second Sunday of Lent. The Gospel for that day recalls the Transfiguration of Christ on Mount Thabor (see Lk 9:28-36). In his Angelus address, “Pope” Francis therefore took the opportunity to bring up… sadomasochism!

According to the text provided by the Vatican, the fake pope noted that “Christ’s Transfiguration shows us the Christian perspective of suffering. Suffering is not sadomasochism: it is a necessary but transitory passage.”

One can also see/hear Francis utter the Italian word sadomasochismo in the video provided by Vatican Media.

Unhappy Anniversary! Today, March 13, 2019, marks the sixth anniversary of the election of Jorge Mario Bergoglio as head of the Vatican II Sect.

Of course, Novus Ordo Watch was tweeting live at the time, to keep everyone informed as the Smoke of Satan emanated from the conclave chimney. In this post, we will present a select few of the many tweets we sent out on that fateful day. Readers can judge for themselves how much of what we said was downright prophetic.

Is that a Masonic handshake? Just asking…

Last Friday, Mar. 1, it was time again for the quinquennial ad limina visit of the Novus Ordo bishops of Kazakhstan and Central Asia. Canon Law stipulates that diocesan bishops report in person to the Pope every five years to inform him of the state of their dioceses and discuss any problems and concerns with him (see Canons 340-342 of the Catholic 1917 Code; Canons 399-400 of the Novus Ordo 1983 Code).

Francis blasphemes, says Catholic Church has been “Caught in Flagrant Adultery”

Today Jorge Bergoglio — the Jesuit apostate currently pretending to be the Pope of the Catholic Church — met with the clergy of Rome at the Archbasilica of St. John Lateran. As always, he had plenty to say.

The full text of his remarks has not yet been made available in English, but the Italian original is available here. [UPDATE 11-MAR-2019: Complete English translation now released.] A report on the meeting in English can be found at Vatican Insider, but the entire talk is not of interest.

Courageous Reporter asks Vatican Press Panel about Francis’ Cover-Up of Zanchetta Case

Inés San Martín questions “Abp.” Charles Scicluna on Feb. 24, 2019

Some light fireworks could be seen today at the final press conference wrapping up the sex abuse summit in the Vatican that had begun on Feb. 21.

As is customary, the press panel took questions from journalists in the audience after its presentations, and the last one came from Inés San Martín, who is the Rome Bureau Chief for the mainstream Novus Ordo news site Crux. Herself from Buenos Aires, Argentina, San Martin is for that reason somewhat connected to the current pretend-pope, but this did not keep her from asking the following explosive question, clearly embarrassing to Francis and to the other Vatican authorities.

Comedy Hour at Vatican Abuse Summit: Homosexuality isn’t “Something that really Predisposes to Sin”

The Vatican is currently in the midst of a turbulent four-day summit on sexual abuse. The conference gathers the highest-ranking prelates from every nation to try to find some kind of a solution to its ongoing scandals involving the sexual abuse of minors. Although there has also been abuse of so-called “vulnerable adults”, especially seminarians, the Vatican has seen fit not to address that at the current time, contrary to its original announcement.

Yesterday, Feb. 21, “Pope” Francis opened the conference with a list of 21 points for “reflection”.

Heretic approves heretic…

“Cardinal” Müller in new Interview:
“This Pope is Orthodox”

Bad news for those who have been putting all their hopes in “Cardinal” Gerhard Ludwig Müller and saw in his recent Manifesto of Faith a covert accusation of heresy against “Pope” Francis. In a new interview released in the German secular magazine Der Spiegel last week, Muller was asked point-blank whether he believes Francis is a heretic. His answer was not really surprising.

Here is the relevant excerpt from the text:

Spiegel: Is Pope Francis a heretic, a denier of dogma, as some few princes of the Church insinuate?

Former Novus Ordo Cardinal returned to Lay State

This hasn’t happened to the former “Cardinal” Theodore McCarrick since the 1950’s: His official address is now Mister again. Ordained a priest on May 31, 1958, the disgraced sex abuser Theodore McCarrick will remain “a priest for ever according to the order of Melchisedech” (Ps 109:4); however, the Novus Ordo authorities are no longer allowing him to exercise this priesthood that was indelibly imprinted on his soul on the day of his ordination. For all intents and purposes, therefore, he is a layman again.

Moral Advice from “Pope” Francis:
“The Least Serious Sins are the Sins of the Flesh”

On Sep. 6, 2017, the French sociologist Dominique Wolton, himself an agnostic, released an interview book with “Pope” Francis entitled Pape François: Politique et Société (“Pope Francis: Politics and Society”). It is in this book that Francis revealed for the first time that he used to get treated by a Jewish psychoanalyst in Argentina. We reported on the matter here.

The book has since been translated into English and is now available as A Future of Faith: The Path of Change in Politics and Society.

Ark of Apostasy:
Why Francis’ Interreligious Fraternity Document does Not Admit of an Orthodox Interpretation

The apostate Jesuit Jorge Bergoglio — more commonly known by his stage name “Pope Francis” — caused a ruckus last week when he co-signed a document on “human fraternity” with Sunni Muslim Imam Ahamad Al-Tayyib declaring that God wills there to be a plurality and diversity of religions. We covered this in our post “Apostasy in Abu Dhabi: Francis says God wills Diversity of Religions”.

Just before the signing of the joint declaration, Francis gave a lengthy speech in which he called all participants of the interreligious conference he was attending to “enter together as one family into an ark which can sail the stormy seas of the world: the ark of fraternity.” In a separate article, we dismantled Francis’ sophistry and demonstrated how his address contradicts the traditional and immemorial Catholic teachings left and right.
