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.
Bombshells and Drivel galore:
In Q&A with Slovak Jesuits, Francis hits back at Critics
During his recent trip to Slovakia, the Argentinian aposte Jorge Bergoglio (aka “Pope Francis”) once again took time to meet with his fellow Jesuits, which usually means they get to ask him questions and he then responds with his incredibly profound wisdom.
This is something he’s been doing on pretty much all his trips outside of Italy, so it was expected. A full transcript of the question-and-answer session is always released a few weeks later by “Fr.” Antonio Spadaro, S.J., editor-in-chief of the Jesuit review La Civiltà Cattolica, which under Pope Pius IX started out as an eminently orthodox publication but has long since degenerated into an utter Modernist rag.… READ MORE
Francis in new Interview: “I’m Rather Shy”, Mass Readings in Latin “Like Laughing at the Word of God” — and more!
Dangerous combination: Jorge Bergoglio and an open microphone
It should be a pretty safe bet to say that “Pope” Francis has never met a microphone he didn’t like. Just recently, he got to speak into one for roughly 75 minutes, and the result of that encounter was published today.
Spanish journalist Carlos Herrera has interviewed the Jesuit pseudo-pope Jorge Bergoglio at his residence in Vatican City for the radio station Cadena de Ondas Populares Españolas — COPE for short — which is owned by Spain’s Novus Ordo bishops.… 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.

Francis’ Motu Proprio Traditionis Custodes
Listen on demand at any time — free!
The popular podcast program FRANCIS WATCH has returned with a special edition dedicated to the release of Traditionis Custodes, the “Apostolic Letter” with which Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) severely restricts and gradually phases out the Traditional Latin Mass, or more specifially, the use of the Roman Missal of 1962 and before.
Novus Ordo Watch is pleased to sponsor this important episode, in which host Matthew Gaskin of True Restoration analyses with his distinguished guest, Bp.… READ MORE
Top Lefebvrist contradicts traditional Catholic doctrine
SSPX Superior General blasts Traditionis Custodes:
A Sedevacantist Critique
SSPX Superior General, Fr. Davide Pagliarani
Yesterday, on July 22, 2021, the headquarters of the Lefebvrist Society of Saint Pius X (FSSPX or SSPX) in Menzingen, Switzerland, released an official Letter from its Superior General, Fr. Davide Pagliarani, in response to the recent “Apostolic Letter” issued motu proprio by “Pope” Francis, Traditionis Custodes, which severely limits the use of the Roman Missal of 1962 (“Traditional Latin Mass”) and eventually phases it out completely. It can be found here:
Unlike the polemical article “From the Reserve to the Zoo” which the SSPX news team had released on July 17, this more formal reaction from the Superior General is quite different in tone, yet just as stern on the issues.… READ MORE
GONE! Rorate Cæli Blog Removes Picture of “Pope” Francis
The popular pseudo-traditionalist blog Rorate Caeli has not taken too kindly to the revocation of Summorum Pontificum by Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”), the man they stubbornly recognize as head of the Catholic Church while refusing him submission. Francis’ document Traditionis Custodes has thrown them all into complete shock, and by decreeing that it take immediate effect, they do not even have a grace period in which to catch their breath and gather their senses.
Now that a few days have passed since the release of the new motu proprio, it looks like the editors of Rorate Caeli could no longer stand looking at the man they supposedly honor as the Vicar of Jesus Christ on earth, Father and Teacher of all Christians.… READ MORE
From the Reserve to the Zoo: Society of St. Pius X slams Francis’ Decree against Traditional Latin Mass
On Saturday, July 17, 2021, one day after the release of “Pope” Francis’ decree Traditionis Custodes, the Lefebvrist Society of St. Pius X published a scathing but humorous response, in which it accuses the supposed Vicar of Christ of “caging” the Traditional Latin Mass and forcibly administering a “vaccination” against Lefebvrism. In this way, the SSPX contends, he seeks to marginalize Tradition-loving Catholics with the ultimate goal of driving them into extinction.
The Authority of the Roman Pontiff over the Sacred Liturgy
In his landmark encyclical letter on the Sacred Liturgy, Pope Pius XII taught clearly and authoritatively:
The Church has further used her right of control over liturgical observance to protect the purity of divine worship against abuse from dangerous and imprudent innovations introduced by private individuals and particular churches. Thus it came about — during the 16th century, when usages and customs of this sort had become increasingly prevalent and exaggerated, and when private initiative in matters liturgical threatened to compromise the integrity of faith and devotion, to the great advantage of heretics and further spread of their errors — that in the year 1588, Our predecessor Sixtus V of immortal memory established the Sacred Congregation of Rites, charged with the defense of the legitimate rites of the Church and with the prohibition of any spurious innovation.
Commentary on Francis’ Move against the Latin Mass
July 16, 2021 has been a very eventful day, and at its conclusion we present to you this podcast, almost half an hour in length, analysing and evaluating Francis’ controversial motu proprio Traditionis Custodes as well as its accompanying explanatory letter. We also provide some important initial commentary on this historic development, putting it in context for all who are trying to understand what in the world has happened to the Roman Catholic Church:
Our initial post announcing the suppression of the 1962 Missal by Francis can be found here:
With a stroke of the pen, the phony “Vicar of Christ” Jorge Bergoglio, also known as “Pope” Francis, has abrogated the document the traditionalists in the Vatican II Church have clung to as the bedrock enabling their “Latin Mass culture”. Logical chickens are now coming home to roost.… READ MORE
For example, in his encylical letter on human fraternity, the false pope quotes the Chilean Novus Ordo cardinal Raúl Silva Henríquez (1907-99), saying:
Let us not forget that “peoples that abandon their tradition and, either from a craze to mimic others or to foment violence, or from unpardonable negligence or apathy, allow others to rob their very soul, end up losing not only their spiritual identity but also their moral consistency and, in the end, their intellectual, economic and political independence”.

Back in 2014, when Francis had a golden opportunity to 'proclaim the Gospel' to the needy, to those in darkness, to the oppressed who were Muslims migrants -- but he didn't. Instead he told them to read their Koran -- that would help them to move forward:

They are trying so hard but it is of no avail: You cannot have it both ways: have Francis be Pope AND do your own thing in religion. As long as you recognize him as Pope, he wins. And an opinion of Fr. Henri LeFloch does not trump papal teaching. #catholic
Kennedy Hall admits he doesn't adhere to Vatican II ecclesiology - Keep that in mind for next time one of his co-religionists asks you, "But what doctrine of Vatican II do we actually reject?" #catholictwitter #catholic
@tonylarosa9 <<< Meanwhile, the possibility of heresy in a papal teaching, even if not ruled out by the logic of non-infallibility, IS ruled out by the Church's teaching on the Papacy. If the Pope could teach something that denies the Faith, he would no longer be a safe guide to salvation.
