Vatican Issues Ecumenical ‘Study Document’ Downgrading the Papacy to Appeal to Non-Catholics

The Vatican’s next salvo against Roman Catholicism has been fired, this time in the name of ecumenism and synodality.

Today the Vatican’s so-called Dicastery for Promoting Christian Unity released a 146-page ‘study’ document entitled The Bishop of Rome: Primacy and Synodality in the Ecumenical Dialogues and in the Responses to the Encyclical Ut Unum Sint. It contains a preface by the Swiss ‘Cardinal’ Kurt Koch, who is the prefect of the Dicastery, meaning he is the Vatican’s top ecumenist.… READ MORE

Bergoglio Doubles Down: All Religions Look at the One God in Different Ways!

It is often difficult to keep up with ‘Pope’ Francis (Jorge Bergoglio), but here at Novus Ordo Watch, we do try. Even though he is 87 years old, when it comes to advancing the Great Apostasy, there is simply no slowing down for him.

On May 18, 2024, the false pope made a trip to the city of Verona in northern Italy. One of his stops there was Montorio Prison, where he addressed the inmates.

Vatican News has released the video footage of the event:

When Bergoglio visits prisons, he often points out that God forgives always, although he never mentions the conditions necessary to receive that forgiveness; and it was no different this time around.… READ MORE

A ‘Garden of Encounter’: Vatican Releases Idiotic Children’s Declaration on Fraternity

Children wearing laurels alternate reading a declaration on human fraternity…

The second annual so-called World Meeting on Human Fraternity ended today in Vatican City.

The two-day event, sponsored by the Fratelli Tutti Foundation, was a follow-up to last year’s single-day event by that name, which was a complete bust as practically no one showed up and pictures of St. Peter’s Square showed lots of empty chairs (ha!):

Whereas last year’s meeting bore the title ‘Not Alone’, this year’s edition was labeled ‘Be Human’.… READ MORE

Francis Sends Message to Ecumenical Forum, Praises ‘Beautiful Mosaic of Contemporary Christianity’

Today the Vatican released a message from ‘His Holiness’ (Jorge Bergoglio, aka ‘Pope Francis’) for the Fourth Global Christian Forum, which is currently underway in Accra, Ghana.

It is an ecumenical conference aimed at providing “a ‘space’ where participants all meet on an equal basis, to foster mutual respect, and to explore and address together common concerns” (source). Its sponsor is the so-called Global Christian Forum, an organization that “aims to create a place, independent of existing structures, for the growing unity of the global church [sic]” (source).… READ MORE

“It’s Nonsense”: German Novus Ordo Priest Brazenly Denies Virgin Birth Dogma in Public Interview

The social activist ‘worker priest’ Franz Meurer is pastor of a parish in Cologne

‘Father’ Franz Meurer (b. 1951) is a Novus Ordo priest in Cologne, Germany, in good standing with his archdiocese, which is headed by the supposedly conservative ‘Cardinal’ Rainer Maria Woelki.

Known for his social activism and care for the poor, Meurer has been the pastor of the hideous St. Theodore’s church in the city’s Vingst district since 1992. As can be seen here, the church, newly-built in the early 1990s, has all the architectural charm of a sewage treatment plant.… READ MORE

German Diocese Officially Allows ‘Eucharistic Sharing’ with Protestants

The diocese of Osnabrück in Germany is currently vacant, even from a Novus Ordo perspective. Its most recent ‘bishop’ was Franz-Josef Bode, who resigned on March 25, 2023, over his handling of abuse cases in the diocese.

To get an idea of what kind of ‘shepherd’ had led the ‘Catholics’ of Osnabrück since 1995, it suffices to know that in 2014, Bode was responsible for an abominable quasi-nude spectacle taking place in the diocesan cathedral, and that he thinks highly of Dr. Stephan Goertz, a lay theologian who is on record suggesting that “a committed, loving homosexual union, which sees itself as a relationship of faith in the God of Israel and Jesus” might actually “possess a sacramental character.”… READ MORE

Novus Ordo Bishop celebrates Interfaith Hanukkah with Jews and Protestants

Michael James Sis (b. 1960) is the Novus Ordo bishop of the so-called Roman Catholic diocese of San Angelo, Texas. He was appointed to his putative office by the Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio (‘Pope Francis’) in 2013.

This past Wednesday, Dec. 13, ‘Bishop’ Sis spoke at an interreligious Hanukkah celebration that he himself had helped put together. The event was included in the pseudo-bishop’s online calendar as “Interreligious Hanukkah service” to be held at Heritage Hall of the local First Methodist Church.… READ MORE

‘In the Name of the Father and of the Holy Spirit’: Bishop omits God the Son from Blessing at Interfaith Prayer Service

On Oct. 27, 2023, at 6:00 pm local time, an interreligious ‘prayer for peace’ event was held in the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in San Luis, Argentina. The event was hosted by the local ordinary, ‘Bishop’ Gabriel Bernardo Barba (b. 1964), who also took part and in fact gave a final blessing of sorts. But more on that in a moment.

On Instagram, the diocese published a photo of the event the very same day (see title image above) and explained who the participants were (please pardon the sometimes obscurely-worded religious affiliations of the individual attendees; the wording is based on an automatic computer translation):

THE PROVINCE OF SAN LUIS PRAYED FOR PEACE

Within the context of the World Day for Peace, promoted by Pope Francis from Rome, today prayers were said all over the world for this petition.

Rumor Control: Was Ratzinger against the Interreligious Prayer Meetings in Assisi?

‘Archbishop’ Georg Gänswein is back in the news.

His tell-all book Nothing but the Truth: My Life Beside Benedict XVI, the release of which reportedly made ‘Pope’ Francis furious, hit the shelves in Italy at the beginning of this year. At the time, it was not yet clear when or by whom it would be published in English. Benedict XVI, Joseph Ratzinger, had just died two weeks prior.

Francis Blasts Those Who ‘Talk About Their Vision of Humanity but Never About Jesus’

Jorge Bergoglio’s sense of humor was on display this past Wednesday, Oct. 18, 2023.

As part of his weekly audience ‘catechesis’, which is ironically on “passion for evangelization” and “apostolic zeal” currently, the man whose professional stage name is ‘Pope Francis’ kept a straight face when he warned:

…we risk talking about ourselves, the group to which we belong, a morality or, even worse, a set of rules, but not about Jesus, his love, his mercy. I see this in some new movements that are emerging: they talk about their vision of humanity, they talk about their spirituality and they feel theirs is a new path… But why do you not talk about Jesus?

Exclusive Translation:
Pope Pius IX’s Apostolic Letter Multiplices Inter of 1851

Pope Pius IX was the second-longest-reigning Pope in the history of the Catholic Church.

Born Giovanni Maria Mastai-Ferretti in 1792, he reigned as Pope Pius IX for nearly 32 years, from June 16, 1846 until his death on Feb. 7, 1878. The only Pope who reigned longer than he was St. Peter.

One of the highlights of Pius IX’s long pontificate was the Syllabus of Errors, released on Dec. 8, 1864, along with the encyclical letter Quanta Cura, in which he declared:

But now, as is well known to you, Venerable Brethren, already, scarcely had we been elevated to this Chair of Peter (by the hidden counsel of Divine Providence, certainly by no merit of our own), when, seeing with the greatest grief of Our soul a truly awful storm excited by so many evil opinions, and (seeing also) the most grievous calamities never sufficiently to be deplored which overspread the Christian people from so many errors, according to the duty of Our Apostolic Ministry, and following the illustrious example of Our Predecessors, We raised Our voice, and in many published Encyclical Letters and Allocutions delivered in Consistory, and other Apostolic Letters, we condemned the chief errors of this most unhappy age, and we excited your admirable episcopal vigilance, and we again and again admonished and exhorted all sons of the Catholic Church, to us most dear, that they should altogether abhor and flee from the contagion of so dire a pestilence.

Multiplices Inter (1851)

Apostolic Letter of His Holiness Pope Pius IX, issued on June 10, 1851, condemning certain Errors of Francisco de Paula González Vigil

from which the 1864 Syllabus of Errors draws condemned propositions 15, 21, 23, 30, 51, 54, 68, and 74

(Not to be confused with the Encyclical Inter Multiplices of 1853
nor the Allocution Multiplices Inter Machinationes of 1865)


1. Among the manifold and very heavy cares of Our office, by which We are weighed down on all sides, and among the very great misfortunes of this time, which disturb and violently distress Our mind amid the increasing novelty of all things, there is added the greatly-to-be-lamented fact that the most dangerous books are daily springing forth from the lairs of the Jansenists and other men of that kind, whereby the sons of this age, in order to attract disciples to follow them, speak perverse things in the convincing words of human wisdom.… READ MORE

Pie in the Sky: Francis offers Pseudo-Religious Drivel to Mongolian Authorities

The Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio — stage name: ‘Pope Francis’ — spent the first few days of the month of September in Mongolia. The official motto of his 43rd blather tour outside Vatican City, solemnly styled an ‘apostolic journey’, was Hoping Together. Precisely what the object of that hope is supposed to be, was not explained, but we can be certain it’s not the Beatific Vision.

On Sep. 2, 2023, the fake pope met with Mongolian president Ukhnaagiin Khürelsükh and other authorities and diplomats at the state palace:

The papal impostor put on his pensive face for the interview with Al-Ittihad

The Vatican may be on its annual summer break all through July, but the Jesuit apostate Jorge Bergoglio (‘Pope Francis’) has a way of making sure he remains in the news nonetheless.

Not surprisingly, therefore, the month had barely started when yet another interview with Francis was published, this time by Al-Ittihad, a newspaper from the United Arab Emirates (UAE), on July 3:

This is the first time Bergoglio has given an interview to a publication from the UAE.… READ MORE

Vatican’s Human Fraternity Extravaganza ‘Not Alone’ Flops as No One Shows Up

Getting a front-row seat wasn’t terribly difficult…

Imagine it’s the first-ever World Meeting on Human Fraternity and nobody cares.

That is exactly what happened on Saturday, June 10, in Rome. Under the ironic motto #NotAlone, the event’s organizers and contributors found themselves very much alone as they put on a nearly 5-hour long spectacle in St. Peter’s Square that almost nobody cared to attend.

#NotAlone was Quite Alone

According to the Silere Non Possum blog, “Those few people present were tourists, who didn’t stay, and friends of the Franciscan cardinal”, by whom they mean Mauro Gambetti, who is the ‘Archpriest’ of St.… READ MORE
