Watering down the Modernist liturgy…

Novus Ordo “Mass” in the Ocean
— with Air Mattress Altar

UPDATES 27-JUL-2022:


Paul VI’s Novus Ordo Missae, the “New Mass” of the Vatican II Church, is the gift that keeps on giving.

While Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) is currently making an apology tour through Canada, even donning a Native American headdress and getting smudged by the indigenous, an Italian news site is reporting on a “Mass at Sea” in which an air mattress was used as an altar.… READ MORE

On June 29, 2022, the Jesuit apostate Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) issued a so-called Apostolic Letter, entitled Desiderio Desideravi. The title is taken from the holy Words of our Lord Jesus Christ at the beginning of the Last Supper: “With desire I have desired to eat this pasch with you, before I suffer” (Lk 22:15).

The subject matter with which this letter concerns itself is that of the Sacred Liturgy, or, in Vatican II speak: “on the liturgical formation of the People of God”.… READ MORE

Today we would like to introduce you to a gem of Brutalist architecture, the famed church associated with St. John’s Abbey in Collegeville, Minnesota.

The architect who committed this eyesore is Marcel Breuer (1902-81), who is also responsible for St. Francis de Sales church in Norton Shores, Michigan.

Design and construction of this church began in the 1950s, so one can see how deeply the spirit of Modernism and the subsequent Vatican II religion was alive and well during that time.… READ MORE

Apostolic Letter Desiderio Desideravi
on the Liturgical Formation of the People of God

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:

Vatican News has published the following reports and commentary:

The following is a list of links with initial coverage, summaries, and commentary on Desiderio Desideravi by various sources:

Muslim Politician given Novus Ordo Eucharist at ‘Catholic Congress’ in Germany

The 102nd edition of the notorious German Katholikentag (“Catholic Congress”) is currently underway in the city of Stuttgart. The official web site has a section for English speakers here.

The Katholikentag (pronounced cut-oh-LEAK-un-tuhg) has genuinely Catholic origins in the 1800s, but since at least 1968 it has been an insufferable sewer of anti-Catholic ideas and rebellion against God’s order. At this point it is an utter cesspool of Modernism, Indifferentism, feminism, Marxism, environmentalism, sexual immorality, and liturgical chaos — to be outdone only by its Lutheran counterpart.… READ MORE

The Heights of Absurdity:
Rock-Climbing Wall installed in Vienna Cathedral

The Archlayman of Vienna, “Cardinal” Christoph Schönborn, has once again found a way to defile the Cathedral of St. Stephen and hold it up to the mockery of the world.

Although this time it wasn’t a homosexual prayer service, a flamboyant rock play, or a fundraising gala featuring the sodomite lobby that disgraced the sacred place, nonetheless the scandalous false shepherd once again managed to pull off an entirely farcical and unworthy spectacle in this temple originally consecrated to the worship of the Most Holy Trinity.… READ MORE

Documentary:
Behold the “New American Catholic” of 1968


Fr. William Nerin (1926-2020) presides over a liturgical travesty

In the last post, we saw that Paul VI himself came up with the expression “Conciliar Church” in March of 1966 to describe the ecclesial monstrosity his Second Vatican Council had created.

In the present post, we will look at some of the first fruits, so to speak, of that New Church in the United States.

In June of 1968, the American TV channel NBC aired a 50-minute documentary entitled The New American Catholic, and it shows how unrecognizable this new “Catholic Church” was less than 10 years after Pope Pius XII had died.… READ MORE

Eyesore in the Sanctuary: ‘Cardinal’ Schönborn consecrates ‘IKEA Altar’ in Dominican Church in Vienna

The apostate Vatican II Sect has lots of “false apostles [who] are deceitful workmen, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ” (2 Cor 11:13).

One of the worst of them all, however, is Christoph Schönborn, O.P., as will be shown later. The 77-year-old has been the “cardinal-archbishop” of Vienna, Austria, since 1995, and even though he is already two years past mandatory retirement age, “Pope” Francis has still not accepted his resignation.

This past Sunday, on Mar. 27, 2022, Schonborn presided over the consecration of a new altar in the Baroque-style Dominican Church of St.READ MORE

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:

On Friday, February 4, 2022, two members of the Priestly Fraternity of St.

Liturgical Absurdistan: Final Blessing with Guitar at Novus Ordo Mass near Chicago

The latest absurdity of Novus Ordo worship comes to us from the “Holy Family Catholic Community” in Inverness, Illinois, courtesy of the parish pastor, the Rev. Terence M. Keehan (“Fr. Terry”).

We put together the following video clip featuring the final prayer and “blessing” perpetrated by the parish pastor on Sunday, Feb. 13, 2022, as part of the 9:00 am “Catholic Mass” (full video here). This 90-second video is an absolute must-see:

The closing prayer that precedes this sacrilegious “blessing”, as well as the few words that follow it, make for a perfect complement to the liturgical insanity of Novus Ordo Land.… READ MORE

No Holy Spirit here:
Welcome to the “Tent” Church of the Unholy Ghost

Alright, everyone, it is the liturgical season of Septuagesima, the annual two-and-a-half-week prelude to Lent. Why not practice some mortification of the eyes?

The so-called Heilig-Geist-Kirche (“Church of the Holy Ghost”) in Ergenzingen, Germany, affords ample opportunity for visual penance, and the title image above is a good start.

The “sacred” building in question is located near the city Rottenburg and part of the diocese of Rottenburg-Stuttgart, which was once shepherded occupied by the Resurrection denier and general Modernist apostate “Bishop” Walter Kasper (1989-99) before he was promoted to being the Vatican’s chief ecumenist.… READ MORE

Why You’re Not Novus Ordo Anymore:
A “Eucharistic Celebration” instead of the Holy Sacrifice

It is an open secret that the authorities of the Vatican II Church struggle with the fact that fewer and fewer of their members still bother to show up at church on Sundays, and that many of them even abandon their pseudo-Catholic religion altogether.

In fact, as The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this month, the “Catholic” Church is now “losing Latin America”. What might account for such a devastating decline in “practicing Catholics”?

The answer is obvious, staring everyone in the face.… READ MORE

Church of the Squashed Mushroom?
St. James the Apostle Parish in Ferrara, Italy


Don’t be deceived: The outside of the church is the pretty part!

It’s time again for one of those “ugly Novus Ordo church building” posts. Thanks to the “Great Renewal” of the Vatican II Sect, there is a sheer endless supply of material.

Today we shall look at the parish of St. James the Apostle (San Giacomo Apostolo) in the Archdiocese of Ferrara-Comacchio, Italy. The diocese is currently led by Archlayman Gian Carlo Perego, chosen for this role by “Pope” Francis in 2017.… 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
