The Theological Errors of “Bishop” Schneider

A Refutation of Athanasius Schneider on the Heretical Pope Question

On March 20 of this year, the Kazakh Novus Ordo auxiliary bishop Athanasius Schneider, immensely popular among semi-traditionalists, published a lengthy article entitled, “On the Question of a Heretical Pope” on the Rorate Caeli web site.

In face of the overwhelming evidence that Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) is not a Catholic but a public heretic, Schneider’s objective was to find a way to reconcile Bergoglio’s obvious stubborn adherence to heresy with his claim to the Papacy, the legitimacy of which Schneider refuses to question.… READ MORE

The Novus Ordo Missae at 50…

Five Sorrowful Decades:
Fifty Years of Paul VI’s “New Mass”

by Francis del Sarto

“Truly, if one of the devils in C. S. Lewis’s The Screwtape Letters had been entrusted with the ruin of the liturgy, he could not have done it better.” –Dietrich von Hildebrand

“Every sectarian who wishes to introduce a new doctrine finds himself, unfailingly, face to face with the Liturgy, which is Tradition at its strongest and best, and he cannot rest until he has silenced this voice, until he has torn up these pages which recall the faith of past centuries.”READ MORE

Adhering to Doctrine; Flagrant Adultery; and a Dream called Jesus

Great news, everyone: It is time again for the quarterly Francis Watch!

Novus Ordo Watch is pleased to sponsor the phenomenal podcast program Francis Watch, in which host Stephen Heiner of True Restoration analyses with his sedevacantist guests, Bishop Donald Sanborn and Fr. Anthony Cekada, the latest chaos perpetrated by Jorge Bergoglio, the man who claims to be the head of the Catholic Church under the title “Pope Francis”. In this latest episode, Bp.… READ MORE

Bergoglio reflects on his trip to Morocco…

Naturalism at Full Blast:
Francis on the Existence of All Religions

None are so blind as those who refuse to see…

At today’s General Audience, the Jesuit apostate Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) reflected on the trip he took this past weekend to Rabat, Morocco, where he proclaimed that “being a Christian is not about adhering to a doctrine” and other heretical idiocies. Surprisingly, he did not comment on April 3 being the 50th anniversary of the Novus Ordo Missae (“New Order of the Mass”) of “Pope” Paul VI, the liturgical travesty that passes for the “Roman Catholic Mass” at your local Novus Ordo parish.… READ MORE

Francis in Morocco:
“Being a Christian is not about Adhering to a Doctrine”

It was bound to happen. On the last day of his two-day apostolic journey blather tour in Morocco, Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope” Francis) once again spoke his heretical mind. Whenever this man’s lips part, there is no predicting what will come out of his mouth, and this time he had a few theological indiscretions prepared for his audience.

At the Cathedral of St. Peter in Rabat, Francis addressed his own Novus Ordo clergy, as well as members of the so-called Ecumenical Council of Churches.… READ MORE

Response to a critic…

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

Lefebvrist leadership misleads souls again…

Better to be Wrong with the Pope – or Right with Tradition against Him?

Response to a recent SSPX Article

On March 10, the official news and communications web site of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), founded by Abp. Marcel Lefebvre in 1970, posted a brief article entitled, “Is It Preferable to Be Wrong with the Pope or to Be Right with Tradition against Him?” Predictably, what they offered as argumentation in support of their position is nothing short of a theological disaster.

Let’s go ahead and dissect their little propaganda piece:

This is an objection that is often made to “Tradition”: a Catholic must be in complete union with the pope.

Fool me once, shame on you…

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).… READ MORE

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.… READ MORE

Explosive new book just published…

Counterfeit Catholicism:
The Inside Story of the Second Vatican Council

[UPDATE 27-MAY-2019: We have now posted a sizable review of this book.]

We are happy to announce the release of a massive new study of the Second Vatican Council (1962-65) that includes its history, its making-of, its main players, its errors, and its disastrous consequences: Two sedevacantist priests — Fr. Francisco Radecki and Fr. Dominic Radecki — have just published an 809-page work telling the inside story of the apostate robber synod that has brought about an unprecedented loss of Faith.

Seven years in the making, Vatican II Exposed as Counterfeit Catholicism was exhaustively researched employing all available primary documents.… READ MORE

Dissecting a Misleading Expression:
The Catholic Church and the “Fullness of Truth”

You’ve heard it numerous times: “The Catholic Church has the fullness of truth.” It is a very popular slogan among “conservative” Novus Ordo adherents, and even many Traditional Catholics unwittingly use it. Yet, this adage, though not incorrect if interpreted strictly, is actually favorable to heresy, specifically the heresy of Modernism. This explains why it is an expression that only began to be used with the advent of the Modernist Vatican II religion and was virtually unknown among Catholics before the 1960s.

So, what is the problem?… READ MORE

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.”… READ MORE

The former Prefect of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Destruction of the Faith (2012-2017), “Cardinal” Gerhard Ludwig Muller, has released a four-page document entitled Manifesto of Faith: “Let Not Your Heart Be Troubled!” (Jn 14:1), dated Feb. 10, 2019. The document has been published in as many as seven languages:

A Critical Look at Francis’ “Ark of Fraternity” Speech

In addition to joining his imam friend Ahamad Al-Tayyib to sign an outrageous document that blatantly promotes apostasy, “Pope” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) also gave a speech at the so-called Global Conference of Human Fraternity in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, on Feb. 4.

Here is the full video of the talks given by all the speakers and the document signing at the end:

We will go ahead now and examine some of the nonsense Francis put forward in his speech:
