The Synod goes Big Tent:
Vatican releases Working Document for next Synod Phase
(Disclaimer: NOT an official Synod image)
The earth was trembling yesterday as the Vatican held a press conference to introduce what the entire globe had been waiting for with bated breath: the 56-page Working Document for the Continental Stage of the ever-blessed Synod on Synodality.
The full document, which is adorned throughout with childishly silly crayon-style artwork, can be downloaded in five different languages from the Synod web site:
The paper consists of 109 numbered paragraphs and is divided into various chapters and sub-chapters.… READ MORE

A Case of Mistaken Identity: Semi-Trad Conference tries to be Catholic in Opposition to the ‘Pope’
Eric Frankovitch, John-Henry Westen, and Michael Matt during a press conference Oct. 1, 2022
This past weekend, from Sep. 30 to Oct. 2, 2022, American recognize-and-resist traditionalists held an event called the “Catholic Identity Conference” in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania (official web site).
Not unexpectedly, it was very well attended, being one of the few ways every year the semi-traditionalist crowd can gather together to reassure each other that they’re on the right track, regardless of what the “Pope” says — or the sedevacantists.… READ MORE
Arthur Roche suddenly opposes Protestantism…
Oops! Turns out new ‘Cardinal’ who denounced Traditionalists as Protestants participated in Anglican Liturgy in 2017
The Englishman Arthur Roche is “Pope” Francis’ right-hand henchman in the Vatican in charge of regulating the worldwide liturgical chaos that passes for “Catholic worship” in our day. As prefect of the Dicastery for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, he is also quite specifically in charge of implementing Traditionis Custodes, Jorge Bergoglio’s decree revoking Benedict XVI’s Summorum Pontificum.
Considering the high position to which Francis appointed him just last year, it won’t surprise too many people to learn that Roche detests the Traditional Latin Roman Catholic Mass and instead opts for the fabricated Modernist-Protestant liturgy that is the Novus Ordo Missae of “Saint” Paul VI, promulgated in 1969, otherwise known simply as the “New Mass”.… READ MORE
From the Vatican II religion to Catholicism…
From Novus Ordo Presbyter to Roman Catholic Priest:
An Interview with Father Michael DeSaye
Few things could be more difficult than for a Novus Ordo priest to realize that, despite his sincere love of God and genuine piety, the religion to which he has been unwittingly adhering all his life is not in fact the Roman Catholic religion of time immemorial but a counterfeit concocted in the 20th century.
Probably the only thing more distressing still is the realization that, through no fault of his own, his ordination to the priesthood was most probably invalid, meaning he has never in his life offered a valid Mass nor granted a single valid absolution.… READ MORE

June 29, 2022
[updated 07-JUL-2022 19:34 UTC]
“Pope” Francis has released a follow-up “Apostolic Letter” to his 2021 motu proprio Traditionis Custodes severely limiting the use of the 1962 Roman Missal (“Traditional Latin Mass”). This new document is called Desiderio Desideravi and was published without prior announcement on June 29, 2022, the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul.
The Vatican has made the text of Desiderio Desideravi available in several languages:

Chaos Frank permits FSSP to keep Old Mass…
What Game is Francis playing with the Fraternity of Saint Peter?
He knows how to move pieces: The Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio, S.J.
Predicting what Jorge Bergoglio will do is a dangerous and forlorn task. The man otherwise known as “Pope Francis” is a master manipulator, a cunning schemer, and a malicious deceiver. To “expect the unexpected” is probably the best advice one can give when it comes to the apostate Jesuit from Buenos Aires.
Francis reassures FSSP
This past Monday, Feb. 21, the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter (FSSP) issued the following press release:

Francis Unhinged: Word of God leads us to Man, Caring for Others more important than Religious Ceremony
“And he opened his mouth unto blasphemies against God” (Apoc 13:6):
The Jesuit apostate and false pope Jorge Bergoglio
This past Sunday, Jan. 23, 2022, the Novus Ordo Church celebrated “Sunday of the Word of God” for its Third Sunday in Ordinary Time (in the traditional Roman calendar, it was the Third Sunday after the Epiphany). The feast was instituted only recently by “Pope” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) himself, with the motu proprio letter Aperuit Illis of Sep. 30, 2019.… READ MORE

Report: Vatican preparing Decree on Ecclesia Dei Institutes to be released in March
The French newspaper La Croix has released a report with more information about the future of the Traditional Latin Mass in the Vatican II Church.
Entitled “How Pope Francis sees Church Traditionalists”, it was written by their Vatican-based correspondent Loup Besmond de Senneville and was published in French yesterday, Jan. 17, 2022. An English translation was released today for the international edition:
Although not an “official” Novus Ordo newspaper, La Croix is very much affiliated with the Vatican II Church and is owned by Bayard Presse, which in turn is owned by the Augustinians of the Assumption.… READ MORE

On Epiphany, Bergoglio hijacks Three Magi to slam Traditional Mass, push Surprise Theology
Today the Catholic Church celebrates the Feast of the Epiphany (Theophany), which commemorates the manifestation of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles with the arrival of the Three Kings (Magi) at the crib of the Infant Savior.
For Jorge Bergoglio, S.J., (“Pope Francis”) this was another opportunity to inculcate his ideological talking points into unsuspecting souls, and that is exactly what we saw in the sermon he gave today during the Novus Ordo worship service at St. Peter’s Basilica:

Dreary Christmas: Semi-Trads excoriate Francis over new Latin Mass Restrictions
Move over, Grinch, Scrooge, and other sourpusses: No one wrecks Christmas like the Frankster!
This past Saturday, Dec. 18, His Phoniness “Pope” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) issued an utterly merciless decree against those in his Modernist church who attempt to practice traditional Catholicism while nevertheless recognizing him as Pope. As they are dependent on ready access to the Traditional Latin Mass “in full communion” with the Modernist hierarchy as the center of their sacramental lives, Francis knows exactly the spot at which to strike to ensure they will hurt the most.… READ MORE

Enough Already! Francis doubles down on Traditional Latin Mass Restrictions

It’s amazing how quickly the Modernists occupying the Vatican structures can respond to a set of dubia (questions asking for clarification) if they really want to.
Whereas “Cardinals” Walter Brandmüller and Raymond Burke are still waiting after over five years for answers to their dubia concerning Amoris Laetitia, the Vatican didn’t take long to provide clarification concerning Francis’ July 16, 2021 decree Traditionis Custodes, which severely curtails the right to use the Missal of 1962, commonly referred to as the Traditional Latin Mass.… READ MORE

Sedevacantist resources on ‘Traditionis Custodes’
Free Transcript: Bp. Donald Sanborn analyzes Traditionis Custodes – PLUS: More Resources
On July 24, 2021, the folks at True Restoration released a phenomenal podcast episode of their popular FRANCIS WATCH program. It was a special episode (no. 47) dedicated to the decree Traditionis Custodes the false pope had just released, in which he essentially phases out, however gradually, the use of the 1962 Roncalli Missal (the “Traditional Latin Mass”, for all intents and purposes) in the Vatican II Church.
In the podcast, host Matthew Gaskins interviews Bishop Donald Sanborn, rector of the sedevacantist Most Holy Trinity Seminary in Brooksville, Florida, regarding the historical and theological claims made in Traditionis Custodes.… READ MORE
