‘s New Strategy on “Pope” Francis

The Remnant Underground: “Pope Francis and the Three Amigos”

Being a Semi-Traditionalist is pretty difficult these days: You have to somehow try to reconcile authentic, traditional Catholic teaching with the idea that the world’s most notorious Modernist, Jorge Bergoglio, is the Pope of the Catholic Church. Squaring the circle will prove easier than this, so it is not surprising that all the various attempts at making Francis into a Catholic cannot but end in failure. The problem is that so much damage is being done in the process, damage to Catholic truth and to a proper understanding of Catholic teaching on the Pope and the Church.… READ MORE

In View of John Paul II’s Impending “Canonization”

Decision Time for The Remnant:

Is the Novus Ordo Church the True Church or a Counterfeit Church? 

For decades the semi-traditionalists at The Remnant have been reporting on the apostasy of the Vatican II Church: its evil disciplines, its erroneous and heretical teachings, its impious liturgical laws, its scandalous clergy, its wicked practices. In short, they have been making the overall case that the Novus Ordo Church is the exact opposite of a trustworthy guide in matters of eternal salvation, that it is not the Ark of Salvation but the Ark of Damnation.… READ MORE

Fatima Connection?
Same Old Junk from The Remnant

This episode of “The Remnant Underground” by Mr. Michael Matt is nothing more than an agenda-driven twisting of the facts. The Remnant desperately wants to believe in — and push — a Benedict XVI who is a friend and supporter of Fatima and the True Faith and the True Mass, so they use half-truths to paint a picture of Benedict XVI they want you to believe in. The objective facts, however, tell quite a different story. See for yourself:

Lies and Half-Truths vs. Reality

  • Matt claims: Benedict XVI agrees with Traditional Catholics that the Traditional Mass was never abrogated
    Truth: Yes, Benedict did say this, but it was a lie: In truth the Traditional Mass was suppressed, which is why you needed an “indult” to be allowed to offer it (see How Benedict Destroys the Traditional Mass)
  • Matt claims: Benedict XVI changed “For All” to “For Many” in the New Mass because he agrees that to say “For All” is a lie
    Truth: While Benedict did change “For All” (“Pro Omnibus“) back to “For Many” (“Pro Multis“), he did not concede that “For All” is wrong but that it is an “interpretation” rather than a pure translation, which, however, “was and remains very reasonable” – he does not abandon the conciliar theology behind “For All”: See Benedict’s own ridiculous explanation here and compare it to the reason given by the Roman Catechism (1566) for rejecting “For All”: “With reason, therefore, were the words ‘for all’ not used, as in this place the fruits of the Passion are alone spoken of, and to the elect only did His Passion bring the fruit of salvation” (source)
  • Matt claims: Benedict, through his example, shows he wants Communion in the Hand to be done away with
    Truth: This is a lie.
