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

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

SSPX Priest: ‘My Conviction is that Novus Ordo Priests are Not Validly Ordained’
Fr. Michael Johnson, SSPX, on June 18, 2023
Although Our Lady Help of Christians Church in Garden Grove, California, does not officially belong to the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), priests of the Society currently take care of priestly duties there.
This past Sunday, June 18, 2023, Fr. Michael Johnson, SSPX, offered Mass at Our Lady Help of Christians and gave a sermon in which he briefly mentioned that it is his personal conviction that priestly ordinations in the 1968 Roman rite of Paul VI (“Novus Ordo” ordinations) are invalid.… READ MORE

Historical Tidbit: ‘Pope’ Paul VI permitted active Catholic Participation in Eastern Orthodox Masses
About a month ago, we published an article demonstrating that the Catholic Church teaches that she is infallible not only in her dogmas but also in her universal laws and sacramental rites — not in the sense that these could never be changed, but rather, that they could never be in themselves impious, heretical, sacrilegious, or otherwise harmful.
In his magnificent encyclical letter on the Mystical Body of Christ, Pope Pius XII taught this explicitly:

Certainly the loving Mother [the Church] is spotless in the Sacraments, by which she gives birth to and nourishes her children; in the faith which she has always preserved inviolate; in her sacred laws imposed on all; in the evangelical counsels which she recommends; in those heavenly gifts and extraordinary graces through which, with inexhaustible fecundity she generates hosts of martyrs, virgins and confessors.

The Peripheries’ Revenge: Bergoglio appoints Jorge García Cuerva ‘Archbishop’ of Buenos Aires
This past Friday, May 26, 2023, the big Vatican news story was that Jorge Mario Bergoglio (‘Pope’ Francis) had canceled the day’s appointments due to a fever. It was also reported that Telemundo had just published an interview with Francis, in which the talkative Argentinian apostate once again graced the globe with his infinite wisdom.
But then there was another big news story, one that did not receive immediate attention.
In the day’s Bollettino, the daily news bulletin of the Vatican press office, came the announcement that Francis had appointed a new ‘archbishop’ of Buenos Aires, his own former diocese.… 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

SSPX Holy Oils consecrated by Novus Ordo Bishop —
Invalid Last Rites coming soon!
[UPDATE Apr. 18: Photo clearly showing ‘Bishop’ Huonder conducting the Chrism Mass ceremony emerges.]
[UPDATE Apr. 8: SSPX German District publishes 19 photos of Chrism Mass in Zaitzkofen, ‘Bp.’ Huonder’s face not visible in any of them. Accompanying text does not mention his name either (or that of anyone else). The SSPX is hoping you won’t ask or care to know who the ‘bishop’ was.]
[UPDATE Apr. 6: GloriaTV reports the ceremony took place as scheduled, with ‘Bishop’ Huonder ‘consecrating’ the holy oils in Germany.… 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

Was Bishop René Gracida Consecrated in the Traditional Rite of Ordination?
In recent days there has been plenty of online chatter regarding Bp. René Henry Gracida (b. 1923), retired ordinary of Corpus Christi, Texas. Gracida is one of only two Novus Ordo bishops, so far, to publicly reject Jorge Bergoglio‘s claim to the Papacy (the other being Jan Paweł Lenga).
In 2017, Gracida said Francis might be a false pope; in 2018, he said the Chair of St. Peter was vacant and so a new conclave would have to be held; by 2022, he had come to believe that Benedict XVI was the true Pope instead; and at this point he presumably believes again that the papal chair is vacant, since Benedict died on Dec.… 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
