Semi-Trads trip over the Papacy…

The Stumbling Block of the Papacy:
Why Bergoglio doesn’t fit


At the dictation of the Holy Ghost, the first Pope, St. Peter, wrote concerning his Lord and Master Jesus Christ:

…it is said in the scripture [Is 28:16]: Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious. And he that shall believe in him, shall not be confounded. To you therefore that believe, he is honour: but to them that believe not, the stone which the builders rejected, the same is made the head of the corner: And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of scandal, to them who stumble at the word, neither do believe, whereunto also they are set.

Only Francis could make Martini look good…

Italian Novus Ordo Priest slams Francis, says not even “Cardinal” Martini would have voted for Bergoglio in Conclave

The long-time Vatican reporter Marco Tosatti has published on his blog a letter that he received from a conservative Italian Novus Ordo priest, one “Fr.” Ariel Levi di Gualdo, in response to his July 20 post, “Martini did not want Bergoglio as Pope”. Tosatti publishes di Gualdo’s letter without commentary, which, indeed, would be superfluous since the contents of the letter speak for themselves.

The main thrust of di Gualdo’s missive is that not even the notorious über-liberal “Cardinal” Carlo Martini (1927-2012) — an advocate of women’s ordination and homosexual civil unions, for example — would have liked to see Jorge Bergoglio as Pope (which is saying quite a lot, considering the theological overlap between Martini and Bergoglio).

The soap opera continues…

“Cardinal” Müller Piles On, says Benedict XVI “Disappointed” at his Dismissal

The German press is abuzz today with regard to some explosive comments made by “Cardinal” Gerhard Ludwig Müller in a new interview with the Deutsche Presse-Agentur, the German quivalent of the American Associated Press. Muller is the former head of the Vatican’s Unholy Office (the Modernist Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith), who, despite his track record as a Modernist heretic, was dismissed from his position by “Pope” Francis on July 1, presumably because Francis does not tolerate Modernists who oppose adultery.

After comments critical of Francis…

Novus Ordo Canon Lawyer: Benedict XVI is being brought into position as Antipope to Francis

It’s a clever ruse because… they’re both Antipopes!

[UPDATE 18-JUL-2017 15:53 UTC: Ganswein denies Benedict meant to criticize Francis]

The fallout from “Pope Emeritus” Benedict XVI’s remarks at the funeral of “Cardinal” Joachim Meisner continues. If the initial reports were enough to makes waves, what is being reported now has the potential to turn into a tsunami.

A German Novus Ordo canon lawyer has gone on record accusing Benedict XVI’s private secretary, “Abp.” Georg Gänswein, of bringing the so-called “Pope Emeritus” into position as Antipope vis-à-vis Francis.

It’s so bad, even atheists notice…

Atheist Philosopher slams Francis: “Bergoglio is Not Concerned with the Salvation of Souls”

Ladies and gentlemen, we are living in the Twilight Zone: At this point, the apostasy of Francis is so obvious that even atheists are taking notice.

We are talking about Marcello Pera, an Italian atheist philosopher and politician who served in his nation’s Senate in the 1990s and 2000s. Twelve years ago, Pera co-authored a book with his friend Joseph Ratzinger, entitled Senza Radici: Relativismo, Cristianesimo, Islam (Mondadori). It was published in English as Without Roots: The West, Relativism, Christianity, Islam in the United States in 2007.

The “Pope” strikes again…

No Joke: Francis posts “No Complaining” Sign on his Apartment Door

You can’t make this stuff up, folks, you just can’t make it up: The Jesuit apostate pretending to be the Pope of the Catholic Church, Mr. Jorge Mario Bergoglio, apparently cannot bear not to be the center of attention even for 24 hours.

With all the maturity of a modern teenager, “Pope” Francis has now affixed a sign outside the door of his personal room at the Casa Santa Marta in the Vatican. The sign reads: Vietato Lamentarsi — Italian for “No Complaining”. Here is a close-up photo of the ridiculous stunt:

(click image to enlarge)

According to a report by Vaticanist Andrea Tornielli, Francis gave explicit permission for a photo of this sign to be taken and published:

The text right underneath the “No Complaining” admonition reads as follows in English translation:

Offenders are subjected to a syndrome of victimism that lowers the mood and the ability to solve problems.

Evangelii Gaudium Reloaded:
Francis’ Message to G20 Summit

One need not possess the charism of infallibility to be able to predict that no matter what happens in the world, Francis will have something to say about it. In fact, one can say that never before Francis did a single man who had so little to say, talk so much.

Thus it stood to reason that the “Pope” wasn’t going to let the world’s major economic powers meet for their annual G20 summit without butting in and gracing them with a few crumbs of his infinite wisdom: A few days ahead of the July 7-8 event in Hamburg, Germany, Francis had sent a message to the host nation’s chancellor, the Lutheran adulteress Angela Merkel.

To attain this goal, he had gone to great lengths:

A Dangerous Experiment:

Taking Francis’ Claim to the Papacy Seriously

Ladies and gentlemen, the following experiment is going to be extremely dangerous. Please put on your goggles, protective gloves, and a breathing mask to minimize the hazardous material you will be exposed to. We’re going to do the unthinkable: For a few minutes, we’re going to take Francis’ claim to being the Pope of the Catholic Church seriously! We will simply square the circle and pretend for a short while that the apostate Jesuit Jorge Bergoglio is actually the Vicar of Jesus Christ on earth! The purpose of this highly toxic experiment will be to demonstrate the consequences that would follow from this absurd supposition.

Spanish Jesuit succeeds “Cardinal” Muller

Francis appoints “Abp.” Luis Ladaria Ferrer as new Head of CDF

 

Well, that didn’t take long: A day after an unconfirmed report made the rounds according to which Francis had dismissed “Cardinal” Gerhard Ludwig Muller from his post as head of the so-called Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF), the Vatican not only confirmed the report but also immediately named a successor to Mr. Muller: It is “Archbishop” Luis Francisco Ladaria Ferrer — a Jesuit!

The formal announcement came in today’s bollettino of the Vatican Press Office (Italian original here). Strictly speaking, Muller was not “fired” by Francis but simply did not have his expiring 5-year appointment (which began on July 2, 2012) renewed.

The Italian web site Corrispondenza Romana reports:

Cardinal Muller dismissed by Pope Francis

His Eminence, Cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Muller, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith since July 2, 2012, has been dismissed by Pope Francis exactly 5 years after expiration of his term of office.

Cardinal Muller is one of the cardinals who have tried to interpret Amoris Laetitia using a hermeneutic of continuity with Church Tradition.

Francis’ Cosmic Apostasy —
New Articles by Miles Christi

Before our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ ascended into Heaven, He warned His disciples: “For there will rise up false Christs and false prophets, and they shall shew signs and wonders, to seduce (if it were possible) even the elect” (Mk 13:22). These words have presumably never been fulfilled more concretely than in the person of Jorge Mario Bergoglio, the man the world knows by his stage name of “Pope Francis”.

Miles Christi (“Soldier of Christ”) is a prolific Catholic writer whose work we have featured on this web site several times before.

No Culture of Encounter: Francis apparently won’t hold Pre-Consistory Meeting with “Cardinals” again

As we learned in the last few months and especially in the past 2 days, although he constantly preaches about “dialogue”, “open doors”, and a “culture of encounter” Christians must supposedly practice, when it comes to four of his own “cardinals” humbly seeking to dialogue with him about their questions concerning the exhortation Amoris Laetitia, all of a sudden the leader of the Vatican II Sect isn’t all that into encounter anymore.

On June 19, it was revealed that Francis has been ignoring the request of “Cardinals” Caffarra, Brandmuller, Meisner, and Burke for a joint audience to resolve apparent contradictions between Francis’ exhortation Amoris Laetitia and the timeless Catholic teaching and practice regarding adultery, the state of grace, and reception of the sacraments.
