“It is written: My house is the house of prayer…” (Lk 19:46)
‘Pope’ Francis will be relieved to hear this: The Church of the Holy Cross in the tiny settlement of Borkenwirthe in Germany did not offer the Traditional Latin Mass this past January 28. Instead, it had advertised a “Disco Mass” for young people — and it followed through with the threat.
A two-and-a-half minute video report of the spectacle summarizes what took place — audiovisually and verbally:
The pews were packed, perhaps also because there was absolutely no risk of being confronted with Catholicism.… READ MORE
Sedevacantist Critique of a recent Taylor Marshall Podcast
(Part 2 of 2)
On Jan. 27, 2023, Dr. Taylor Marshall interviewed Mr. Matthew Gaspers on the topic of whether a Pope can abolish the Traditional Latin Mass of the Roman rite.
Spoiler alert: Gaspers answered with a “definite no” and presented a total of three magisterial quotes and two quotes from Doctors of the Church he thinks prove that a Pope is not permitted to abolish the ancient Roman liturgy, and if he does, all the other members of the Church have the right and/or duty to reject such a decree as void and worthless.… READ MORE
Welcome to Vienna:
‘Donau City Church’ is waiting for you!
Donau City is a part of Vienna, the capital of Austria. It means “Danube City” and was established in 1996. Home to a lot of skyscrapers with offices and apartments, it has an impressive-looking skyline.
In such hip surroundings, of course a cool, contemporary Novus Ordo church cannot be missing. This is where “Donau City Church” comes in. Actually, its proper name is Christ, Hope of the World Church, but you wouldn’t know it from looking at it, as the image above demonstrates.
Reality check for Taylor Marshall and Matt Gaspers…
Can Francis Ban the Latin Mass?
Sedevacantist Critique of a recent Taylor Marshall Podcast
(Part 1 of 2)
On Jan. 27, 2023, Dr. Taylor Marshall interviewed Mr. Matthew Gaspers on the topic of whether a Pope can abolish the Traditional Latin Mass of the Roman rite and replace it with a liturgical aberration such as the Novus Ordo Missae of ‘Saint’ Paul VI. Spoiler alert: Gaspers answered with a “definite no”.
While it is clear that a Pope indeed cannot promulgate something so horrendous as the false mass of Paul VI, since every true Pope is divinely protected from instituting for the entire Church evil, heretical, sacrilegious, or otherwise harmful disciplinary laws or sacramental rites (see Denz.… READ MORE
Details emerge: Bergoglio’s rumored Next Attack on the Traditional Latin Mass
The false pope is determined to protect the world from the liturgical books of 1962…
On Jan. 14, 2023, the German indult blog Summorum Pontificum reported on a credible rumor about “Pope Francis” and his liturgical henchmen preparing another, more severe set of restrictions for the use of the Roman Missal of 1962, after the implementation of Traditionis Custodes has apparently been too lackluster and too slow for the man whose real name is Jorge Bergoglio:
Kneeling not allowed?
Man refused ‘Communion’ at Ratzinger Funeral (Video)
Today the funeral for ‘Pope Emeritus’ Benedict XVI took place in St. Peter’s Square at the Vatican, with Jorge Bergoglio (‘Pope Francis’) presiding. When it came time for the distribution of the invalid communion hosts, a curious incident occurred — and was caught on video.
A man wearing a hoodie walks up to the rail to receive the ‘Eucharist’, kneels down, and removes the hood from his head, as is proper. He opens his mouth to receive, but the Novus Ordo priest signals his unwillingness to give him the host in that way.… READ MORE
Nothing expresses the new religion of Vatican II better than the bizarre “sacred” art and architecture that have accompanied it. On this blog, we occasionally feature some of the worst examples in that regard.
Today we would like to showcase the so-called “Garnet Chapel” (Granatkapelle) in Tyrol, Austria. It was constructed in 2013, the year Jorge Bergoglio became “Pope Francis”. Not that there is any kind of connection there, but it does fit, since the chapel is built in the shape of what is called a “rhombic dodecahedron”, and Francis is a big fan of polyhedrons, at least philosophically (see ‘Apostolic Exhortation’ Evangelii Gaudium, n.… READ MORE
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:
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
What you see in the above image is not vandalism. It is much worse.
The red doodling on the walls and the ceiling is the work of Austrian artist Otto Zitko, perpetrated in 2003. He was commissioned to deface the holy space like this, apparently by the pastor.
The location of this frightful abomination is a side chapel, dedicated to St. Andrew the Apostle, that is part of St. Andrew’s parish (Sankt Andrä) in Graz, Austria. It lies within the diocese of Graz-Seckau, where “Bishop” Egon Kapellari was in charge at the time this blasphemous work was carried out.… READ MORE
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
Juggling the Novus Ordo: ‘Sports Liturgy’ in Austria
(image: Christina Plankensteiner/Sonntagsblatt)
Let no one say that Novus Ordos never go on pilgrimage.
This past June 26, the Austrian diocese of Graz-Seckau hosted a “sports pilgrimage”, during which participants were able to attend a special “sports liturgy”, which included not only a biking presbyter but also a juggler, a band, and all kinds of entertainment — even young cheerleaders, who gave a performance just before the reading of the Gospel.
We can only be grateful that the presider, a certain “Fr.” Alfred Jokesch, did not attempt to confect the Holy Eucharist.… READ MORE
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.
