New Dubia Drama:
Five Conservative ‘Cardinals’ challenge Francis
[UPDATE: We have corrected an error regarding the original formulation of the Dubia. Post revised accordingly.]
Asking ‘Pope’ Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) to clarify his doctrine is risky business — especially if he responds.
This has happened now to ‘Cardinals’ Walter Brandmuller, Raymond Burke, Joseph Zen Ze-kiun, Juan Sandoval Íñiguez, and Robert Sarah, who challenged the man they erroneously believe to be the Pope of the Catholic Church regarding matters of doctrine on faith and morals.
Back on July 10 of this year, the five Novus Ordo cardinals had submitted five specific questions to Francis in the traditional ‘dubia’ (Latin for doubts) format.… READ MORE
Vatican’s former “watchdog of orthodoxy”…
‘Cardinal’ Müller: The Son of God “is neither a Prophet nor the Founder of a Religion”
Yet another German Modernist: the supposedly conservative ‘Cardinal’ Müller
Gerhard Ludwig Müller (b. 1947) is a Vatican ‘cardinal’ who hasn’t had an assignment in over five years. Ever since ‘Pope’ Francis decided not to renew his expired 5-year term as head of what was then called the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith in 2017, Muller has been keeping himself busy writing books and giving lectures and interviews.
As the Vatican’s former “watchdog of orthodoxy”, Muller has been able to continually maintain a profile as a supposedly conservative crusader against the errors of our day, when nothing could be further from the truth.… READ MORE

High-Profile Jesuit: ‘I Do Not Believe in Transubstantiation’
Catholicism just isn’t his thing: the Jesuit Modernist ‘Fr.’ Tom Reese
It is rare that a Novus Ordo Jesuit comes out and states explicitly that he does not believe in a dogma of the Faith, but it does happen on occasion.
A recent example is the American ‘Fr.’ Thomas J. Reese, S.J. (b. 1945), who was editor-in-chief of the Jesuit rag America until 2005.
In a Jan. 31 article suspiciously entitled “The Eucharist is about More than the Real Presence” — a write-up meant to contribute to the “Eucharistic revival” the Novus Ordo bishops of the United States want to bring about — Reese openly proclaims his rejection of Transubstantiation, which was defined dogmatically and infallibly at the Council of Trent in the 16th century.… READ MORE

Is there a “Problem” with Transubstantiation?
Response to Hendro Munsterman
The beautiful Catholic dogma of Transubstantiation has long been a thorn in the side of Modernists and other heretical innovators. Not surprisingly, therefore, it is also under attack in the Novus Ordo Church, which, although teaching the dogma in its official universal catechism, denies or attacks it in various other ways.
For instance, the Vatican II Church undermines belief in the Real Presence of Jesus Christ in the Holy Eucharist by the way it offers “Mass”, in the way “Holy Communion” is distributed, and in the fact that it authorizes even heretics and now also public adulterers to receive the ostensible Blessed Sacrament under certain circumstances.… READ MORE

MELTDOWN: Round-Up of Reactions to Francis’ Suppression of the Traditional Latin Mass
Now that almost two weeks have passed since the release of Traditionis Custodes, “Pope” Francis’ motu proprio “Apostolic Letter” that severely limits (and gradually eliminates) the Traditional Latin Mass (1962 Missal), a lot of reactions have poured in from various quarters of the Vatican II Church; especially, of course, from those who consider themselves traditionalists, since they are the ones negatively affected by the suppression of Benedict XVI’s Summorum Pontificum.
By phasing out the Traditional Latin Mass (aka Tridentine Mass), a decision he allegedly made based on answers procured through a questionnaire process, Francis has ripped the heart out of the traditionalists in his church.… READ MORE

Brothers All: Spanish Freemasonry cheers Francis’ New Encyclical on Human Fraternity
This should come as absolutely no surprise: On Oct. 5, 2020, only one day after the release of “Pope” Francis’ latest encyclical letter, Fratelli Tutti, the Grand Orient Freemasons of Spain published a statement praising the “papal” document for its adoption and propagation of Freemasonic ideas, by which Francis necessarily also rejects the Catholic Church’s historic condemnations of the Lodge. The well-informed Spanish blog InfoVaticana broke the story the very same day.
The Grand Lodge’s communiqué can be accessed here. The pertinent portion states:

They’ve seen happier days together:
The “good” Modernist Gerhard Muller with the “bad” Modernist Jorge Bergoglio
The Francis Show is currently underway in Mozambique, a nation in southeastern Africa. On his 10-hour flight to get there, Francis naturally took the opportunity to generate some headlines by speaking to the journalists covering his roughly 9-day blather tour, which will take him also to neighboring Madagascar and Mauritius.
Many news outlets have already reported on his haughty comments about his conservative critics from the United States: “For me, it’s an honor that Americans are attacking me,” he said before his spokesman jumped into damage control mode, claiming that his boss “wanted to say that he always considers criticisms an honor, particularly when it comes from important thinkers and, in this case, of an important nation” (source). … READ MORE

The Heresies of “Cardinal” Müller, Part 2:
His Denial of the Perpetual Virginity of the Mother of God

[CONTINUED FROM PART 1: Müller’s Denial of Transubstantiation]
In recent years it has become fashionable in conservative Novus Ordo and even semi-traditionalist circles to promote the German “Cardinal” Gerhard Ludwig Müller (b. 1947) as a conservative stalwart of Catholic doctrine, simply because he opposes adultery, women’s ordination, and a few other ultra-Modernist pet ideas. In February of this year, Müller issued what he called a Manifesto of Faith, and just last month he published an entire book that purports to be a defense of Catholicism against current errors mostly disseminated by Francis or his henchmen.… READ MORE

Peace in the Crisis?
Catholic Family News Promotes a Dangerous Tranquility (PART 1)
by Francis del Sarto
[NOTE: This is Part 1 of a response to a series of articles that the author has since withdrawn and that Catholic Family News has removed from its web site. As a courtesy, we have changed the name of the original author to the pseudonym “Andrew Fornak”.]
Last fall the popular semi-traditionalist propaganda outlet Catholic Family News published the first installment of a three-part article series by Andrew Fornak 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.… READ MORE
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:
