Brazilian ‘Archbishop’ justifies giving ‘Communion’ to Muslim Sheik
In the Vatican II religion, Mr. Geremias Steinmetz (b. 1965) is the ‘Catholic Archbishop’ of Londrina, Brazil. Jorge Bergoglio, aka ‘Pope Francis’, personally appointed him to that position in 2017.
With the recent death of 89-year-old ‘Cardinal’ Geraldo Majella Agnelo (Aug. 26, 2023), formerly the ‘Archbishop’ of São Salvador da Bahia, Steinmetz found himself participating in a funeral ‘Mass’ presided over by ‘Cardinal’ Sérgio da Rocha on Monday, Aug. 28. (A few years back da Rocha presided over a special ‘Mass’ with a drag queen, but that’s another story.)… READ MORE

Just Brutal: Saint Anna Church near Bari, Italy
It’s time again to take a look at some of the stunning architectural contributions with which the Vatican II religion has graced the world.
Today we would like to introduce our readers to the blob of concrete known as the Parish Church of St. Anna (Chiesa parrocchiale di Sant’Anna) in Monopoli, Italy, near Bari. The architect who perpetrated this aesthetic catastrophe is Nazario Losavio.
Here are some additional photos, taken from the Messa in Latino blog (some have been cropped):
Clearly the work of a Catholic trying to emphasize the supernatural, this building immediately raises one’s thoughts heavenward, doesn’t it?… READ MORE
‘Holy Communion’ for over a million people…
Behind the Scenes at World Youth Day:
Reserving the ‘Blessed Sacrament’ for the Crowds
According to reports, there were an estimated 1.5 million people in attendance at the Closing ‘Mass’ for World Youth Day in Lisbon with ‘Pope’ Francis on Aug. 6, 2023.
If a real Catholic Mass, offered by a real Pope, with that many people were ever to happen, it would be clear that Holy Communion would not be distributed, for the simple reason that it could not be done with sufficient dignity and reverence: the danger of sacrilege would be too great.… READ MORE

‘Bishop’ Athanasius Schneider issues Statement declaring Disobedience against Traditionis Custodes to be Legitimate
He rules no flock but presumes to issue directives to the Universal Church: Athanasius Schneider
For the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul, ‘Bishop’ Athanasius Schneider (b. 1961), auxiliary of the diocese of Maria Santissima in Astana, Kazakhstan, has released a statement for publication and dissemination in semi-traditionalists quarters that presumes to effectively overrule ‘Pope’ Francis’ anti-Latin-Mass decree Traditionis Custodes, declaring those who reject it to be free from the guilt of disobedience.
Rorate Caeli is one of the blogs carrying it:
To someone who does not merely pay lip service to the Catholic understanding of the Papacy but actually adheres to it, this whole scenario appears grotesque.… READ MORE

No Snickering! ‘Bishop’ of Auckland wears Candy Bar Wreath at the Altar
Please suppress any urge to snicker at this. What you see above is a snapshot of 60-year-old ‘Bishop’ Stephen Marmion Lowe of Auckland, New Zealand, in the most solemn act of worship of the Most Holy Trinity that the Vatican II religion has to offer — the ‘New Mass’ of Paul VI. They supposedly believe it to be “the fount and apex of the whole Christian life” (Dogmatic Constitution Lumen Gentium, n. 11).
The fact that ‘Bp.’ Lowe is wearing a wreath of Snickers bars may seem odd, but in Polynesia, of which New Zealand is considered a part, this is a common tradition.… READ MORE

Francis to Hungarian Jesuits: Wanting to go back to pre-Vatican II days is ‘Nostalgic Disease’
‘Pope’ Francis likes nothing better than to share with the world his infinite wisdom on just about anything, especially when it comes to replacing Roman Catholicism with the latest novelties of the “god of surprises”.
Thus, when the Argentinian pseudo-pope embarked on his umpteenth ‘Apostolic Journey’ this past April 28, this time to Hungary, it was clear he would meet with his Jesuit confreres there for a little question-and-answer session, because that has become the custom on his trips. The scheduled get-together took place on Saturday, Apr.… READ MORE

The Infallibility of the Catholic Church in her Universal Laws and Sacramental Rites
In his 1943 encyclical letter on the Mystical Body of Christ, Pope Pius XII (r. 1939-1958) clarified that the Roman Catholic Church, although made up of human beings who are sinners, is nevertheless perfectly holy in those things that pertain to her divine constitution and the fulfillment of her mission — that of teaching, governing, and sanctifying souls so that they may attain the Beatific Vision. As “the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth” (1 Tim 3:15), our Lord’s is thus “a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle, or any such thing; but … holy, and without blemish” (Eph 5:27).… READ MORE

In Memory of Patrick Henry Omlor
(June 13, 1931 – May 2, 2013)
Ten years ago today saw the passing of Mr. Patrick Henry Omlor, one of the earliest pioneers of Traditional Catholicism in the 1960s. A Texan by birth, Mr. Omlor died peacefully in Perth, Australia, quite appropriately on the feast of St. Athanasius, May 2, 2013. Like the great bishop, confessor, and doctor St. Athanasius, Mr. Omlor was not afraid to stand up for the true and perennial Catholic Faith at a time when the Vatican II Church was just beginning to take shape, eclipsing the true Catholic Church with its Modernist teachings and false new sacramental rites.… READ MORE

Perhaps we should have seen this coming.
Barely a month after the death of ‘Pope Emeritus’ Benedict XVI (Fr. Joseph Ratzinger) on Dec. 31, 2022, a Novus Ordo religious sister (nun) in Colombia has claimed that the ‘Pope Emeritus’ appeared to her twice in a vision on Feb. 2, 2023, and revealed to her what he called the second part of his spiritual testament (the first having been released to the public the day of his death).… READ MORE

‘Disco Mass’ defiles Catholic Church in Germany
“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

Can Francis Ban the Latin Mass?
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
So inviting and edifying!
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.
Donau City Church is part of a larger parish family and belongs to the Modernist-occupied Archdiocese of Vienna, which is still being led by the quasi-Satanist ‘Cardinal’ Christoph Schönborn (b.… READ MORE

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
