“Cardinal” Burke: Francis Not in Heresy, but Heretical Pope would Lose Office automatically
Embed from Getty Images
The Amoris Laetitia controversy is far from over. If anything, it’s entering now into its hottest phase yet.
American “Cardinal” Raymond Burke has recently given some interviews on the dubia and their non-response by “Pope” Francis and explained what is to happen next if the dubia remain unanswered. Previously Burke had already threatened a “formal act of correction” against Francis, but without giving details or a timeline. Now Burke has upped the ante.
On December 15, 2016, EWTN’s Raymond Arroyo interviewed the Novus Ordo cardinal on his nightly news program, The World Over.… READ MORE
Like there’s anything left to clarify…
Four “Cardinals” officially ask “Pope” to Clarify Amoris Laetitia — Francis Refuses to Answer!
[UPDATE 15-NOV-16: Interview with “Cardinal” Burke on Challenge to Francis]
One may say it’s an Ottaviani Intervention for Novus Ordos: “Cardinals” Raymond Burke, Joachim Meisner, Walter Brandmüller, and Carlo Caffarra have taken the formal step of submitting an official set of dubia (“doubts”) to the “Pope”, presenting him with five specific questions pertaining to the disastrous and controversial “Apostolic” Exhortation Amoris Laetitia, which he released in April of this year. These five clear questions demand five clear answers: yes or no.… READ MORE
Slam Dunk against Vatican II…
Letter from the Holy Office under Pope Pius IX condemning Ecumenism and affirming True Christian Unity
“Ad Quosdam Puseistas Anglicos”
“To Certain Puseyite Anglicans”
November 8, 1865
The binding force of this instruction from the Holy Office, eminently relevant in our difficult times, was reaffirmed by the same Holy Office in 1919, under Pope Benedict XV, and in 1927, under Pope Pius XI.
- “take care lest, while seeking unity, you turn yourselves aside from the way”
- “sorry that you happened to think those Christian groups that boast of having the inheritance of the priesthood and the catholic name belong to the true Church of Jesus Christ, even though they are divided and separated from Peter”
- “what sane person will persuade himself that error can underlie the Church’s public and solemn magisterium”
- “no one is in the Catholic Church who does not cling to that Rock, on which the foundation of Catholic unity has been set”
- “all groups entirely separated from external and visible communion with and obedience to the Roman Pontiff cannot be the Church of Christ, nor in any way whatsoever can they belong to the Church of Christ”

Real Catholic Theology vs. Resistance Wonderland
Bishop Sanborn Responds to Bishop Williamson
Bishop Richard Williamson, formerly with the Society of St. Pius X but expelled in 2012 for being as obedient to Bp. Fellay as Fellay was obedient to John Paul II, still stubbornly clings to the Lefebvrist “recognize-and-resist” position and so continues to reject Sedevacantism. A convert from Anglicanism in 1971, Bp. Williamson has demonstrated again and again that although he always has plenty to say, he has no real grasp of genuine Catholic theology.
Recently, Bp. Williamson published a two-part series against Sedevacantism in his weekly Eleison Comments.… READ MORE

Clarity on a much-misunderstood subject
Can Catholic Doctrine Change?
There is much confusion and misunderstanding, especially these days, about whether Catholic teaching can ever change, whether it has changed in the past, and if so, what this means for an infallible Church.
In a very readable and succinct article entitled “Does Catholic Doctrine Change?”, published in 1947, Fr. Francis J. Connell of the Catholic University of America tackles the issue head-on and, drawing the necessary qualifications and distinctions, shows what part of Catholic teaching can change, what cannot change, and how this relates to the Church’s infallibility and her divine mission to obtain the salvation of souls.… READ MORE

An Ottaviani Intervention for Novus Ordos
Full Text Leaked: 45 Novus Ordo Scholars Condemn Amoris Laetitia as Heretical
The laughing stock that is the Novus Ordo Church is getting more and more absurd by the day. A few weeks ago was the first time we heard about a substantial scholarly critique of “Pope” Francis’ supposed “Apostolic Exhortation” Amoris Laetitia, the blasphemous and heretical document in which Francis undermines not only Catholic teaching on sexuality but obliterates the very foundations of Catholic moral theology. (See our memes that illustrate the absurd effects of the teaching contained in Amoris Laetitia.)
The critical study, together with its accompanying June 29 letter addressed to the Dean of the College of “Cardinals”, Angelo Sodano, was signed by 45 theologians and other scholars in the New Church and sent to all 219 “cardinals” around the globe.… READ MORE
SSPX deal on the home stretch…
Vatican “Abp.” Pozzo:
Bp. Fellay has Accepted Personal Prelature Proposal for SSPX, Details being Worked Out
[UPDATE 29-JUL-16 19:01 UTC: Society of St. Pius X (SSPX): What is and what is not negotiable for reconciliation with the Catholic Church? (Vatican Insider)]
The head of the Vatican’s so-called Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, “Archbishop” Guido Pozzo, has revealed in an interview with the German Christ & Welt that Bp. Bernard Fellay, Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), has agreed to canonical regularization under a personal prelature solution, although details are still being worked out.… READ MORE
Roman Catholic Magisterial Documents
The Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church has published countless doctrinal and disciplinary texts throughout its 2,000-year history: papal and conciliar constitutions, decrees, bulls, letters, encyclicals, allocutions, speeches, etc. There is a woeful lack of these texts on the internet, at least in the English language. For this reason, Novus Ordo Watch makes an effort to procure, translate, transcribe, or simply reproduce important hard-to-find magisterial documents for the benefit of all Catholics.
Further below you will find a list of the magisterial texts available on our web site. Immediately below, there is a short list of third-party web sites that feature an abundance of magisterial documents in Latin, English, or other languages:
For print books that contain magisterial documents, please see our book store.… READ MORE
“Dear Arsonist, please put out the fire!”
“Plea to the Pope”:
VIP Lineup asks Francis to get his Act together
Well, at least it’s a serious effort they’re making, and not just a “click here to sign a petition” ad: “Bishop” Athanasius Schneider, “Fr.” Linus Clovis, and fourteen Novus Ordo life and family leaders from various countries have produced a 30-minute video in which they plead with their “Holy Father” to please stop attacking Catholicism and finally teach sound doctrine. The immediate trigger for this move was the release of Francis’ chaos exhortation Amoris Laetitia, which effectively permits unrepentant public fornicators and adulterers to receive the Novus Ordo version of Holy Communion:
The following clip is a four-minute summary, followed by the full-length video:
These clips were published by the pro-life web site Life Site News, which has also released an article to accompany the videos:
While it seems clear that these people are of good will, it must again be pointed out that it is sheer folly to recognize the manifest apostate Jorge Bergoglio as the Pope of the Catholic Church.… READ MORE
New Interview with SSPX Superior
“We’ve never wanted to be separated from Rome”; “Vatican never called us Schismatic”; “Rome tacitly approves of our Ordinations”
As things deteriorate rapidly in the Vatican II Sect under Francis, the Society of St. Pius X is more eager than ever to obtain regularization and full recognition by Rome. On Tuesday, June 21, 2016, the SSPX Superior General, Bishop Bernard Fellay, gave an interview to Josef Bruckmoser of the Austrian paper Salzburger Nachrichten.
The one-page interview is now available online, and we have translated it from the original German into English (Bp.… READ MORE
