50 Years of Invalid Ordinations in the Novus Ordo Church
It was exactly 50 years ago today, on June 18, 1968, that the head of the Vatican II Sect — “Pope” Paul VI, Bp. Giovanni Battista Montini — signed an “apostolic constitution” to change the Roman Catholic rite of ordination. The changes he introduced touched not only some of the more peripheral ceremonies but the very substance of the sacrament itself. The very words which Pope Pius XII, in 1947, had definitively decreed were necessary for the validity of the sacrament of holy orders, were changed by Paul VI in such a way as to render the ordination of priests doubtful and the consecration of bishops definitely invalid (although even a doubtful rite, in any case, must be considered invalid in practice, per Catholic teaching).… READ MORE

A Bergoglian Corpus Christi
Every year the Feast of Corpus Christi (Body of Christ) solemnly commemorates our Lord’s institution of the Holy Eucharist at the Last Supper the night before His Crucifixion. When Christ spoke the words “This is My Body… This is My Blood” (Mt 26:26,28), He transubstantiated bread and wine into His very own Body, Blood, Soul, and Divinity — to be our perpetual Sacrifice “unto remission of sins” (Mt 26:28) and heavenly Food (see Jn 6:51-52) to be with us forever (cf. Mt 28:20; Jn 14:18). Thus the Sacred Liturgy celebrates the Most Holy Sacrament of the Altar as Sacrifice (Holy Mass), as Meal (Holy Communion), and as Adorable Presence in the Tabernacle. … READ MORE

“Not Ready”: Vatican blocks German Intercommunion Proposal — for now
The Novus Ordo web is abuzz today with news about and reactions to a letter the new head of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Destruction of the Faith, “Cardinal-designate” Luis Ladaria, has sent to “Cardinal” Reinhard Marx of Munich, who is the head of the German Conference of Novus Ordo Bishops.
After Germany’s Modernist pseudo-bishops published a document in February of this year which permits the Protestant spouses of Novus Ordos to receive “Holy Communion” — acc. to Walter Kasper, without having to believe in even so much as Transubstantiation, of course — some dissenting “bishops” complained to the Vatican, and so Francis ordered the disputing parties to come to Rome for a meeting.… READ MORE

Crowd-Surfing of newly-ordained Dominican Novus Ordo Priest in Poland
Today the following video clip was posted on Twitter by the account @ParmeJeanne:
The text accompanying this brief clip reads: “How newly ordained priests exit the sacristy in Poland @Dominican_Order”. The location was indicated as Krakow, Poland. The actual tweet can be accessed here.
Although the ordination of the man in question must definitely be considered invalid (see reasons why here), that’s not the point. The point is that they all believe him to be a valid priest, “another Christ” (alter Christus), “a priest for ever according to the order of Melchisedech” (Ps 109:4).… READ MORE

“Cardinal” Kasper says Protestant Spouses who are given Novus Ordo Communion don’t need to believe in Transubstantiation
A lot of adherents of the Novus Ordo Sect are not aware that their church already officially permits Protestants to receive “Holy Communion”, under certain conditions, without them renouncing their false religion and converting to Catholicism.
This topic is of the greatest importance, as it proves definitively that the Vatican II Sect is not the Catholic Church, because according to traditional Catholic teaching, the Catholic Church is incapable of universally legislating disciplinary laws that are in themselves evil, harmful, or heretical:

HERESY: Francis claims the Baptized cannot lose their Status as Children of God
Barely a day goes by on which Francis doesn’t have something to say, but some days are worse than others.
This past Wednesday, May 9, the apostate pretend-Pope during his general audience gave what was supposed to be a catechesis on the sacrament of baptism. Placing heavy emphasis on the sacramental character — which is indelible and hence baptism can never be repeated once it has been validly administered — Francis proceeded to claim that it is this indelible character which makes us, irrevocably, children of God.… READ MORE

German “Bishops” cause Outrage by allowing “Holy Communion” for Protestants on Case-by-Case Basis
“Cardinal” Jorge Bergoglio at work distributing the invalid Novus Ordo cookie (video)
There is just never a dull day in Novus Ordo Land. Yesterday, the big story was that, led by the infamous “Cardinal” Reinhard Marx, the German “bishops” had decided to permit the Protestant spouses of “Catholics” to receive the Novus Ordo version of Holy Communion. This permission is to apply only, of course, in “individual cases” and only under “certain circumstances” — just like Bergoglio’s permission to commit adultery — and without “chang[ing] any doctrine”.… READ MORE

“Pope” Francis wants to change the Our Father
[Update: You can also listen also to our mini podcast discussing this topic]
Ladies and gentlemen, we can all breathe easier now: After 2,000 years of Catholics praying the Lord’s Prayer incorrectly, Mr. Jorge Bergoglio (aka “Pope Francis”) has now come to deliver Christendom from a frightening “mistranslation” of the words revealed directly by the Lord Jesus Christ: The line in the Our Father that says “And lead us not into temptation” is a thorn in the side of the Jesuit apostate, since it insinuates, so he claims, that God would ever tempt His own children to sin, which is not something a father would do.… READ MORE

Satanic Rock Band Co-Founder gets Novus Ordo Funeral in Sydney Cathedral
Just because you are the co-founder, guitarist, and songwriter of a satanic rock band and persevere in this until God calls you to judgment, doesn’t mean you cannot get a “Catholic” funeral in the Vatican II Sect.
This is evident in the case of Malcolm Young, co-founder of AC/DC, the infamous Australian hard rock band that has perverted the souls of generations since its inception in 1973 with such songs as Highway to Hell, Back in Black, Sin City, Hard as a Rock, Rock’n’Roll Damnation, and Hells Bells (caution!… READ MORE

The Key to Heaven, especially for Our Times
You can still be forgiven of your mortal sins if there is no priest available to hear your confession…
For the great majority of Catholics in the world today, it is virtually impossible to go to confession to a validly ordained priest who professes the true Catholic Faith of the ages and does not profess communion with a public heretic or apostate like Francis or Benedict XVI. Throughout Church history, there were many people in sundry places and circumstances that made approaching a priest for confession, for one reason or another, impossible.… READ MORE

[UPDATE 15-APR-17 17:07 UTC: It has come to our attention that in the foot-washing rite in use before Pope Pius XII’s restoration in 1955, the rubrics mandated the kissing of the feet that were washed. We apologize for not being aware of this and have revised this post accordingly. It changes nothing, however, in our essential critique of Francis’ actions, since he is obviously not trying to restore traditional practice and the Novus Ordo rubrics do not mandate kissing.]… READ MORE

Vatican issues cunning Document
on SSPX Marriages
[UPDATE 04-APR-17 18:00 UTC: Official SSPX Press Release concerning this document]
The Vatican has just added a bigger piece of cheese to the mousetrap it has set for the SSPX.
Today, April 4, the Modernist Vatican took another significant step towards fully “integrating” the Lefebvrist Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) into that much-vaunted “full communion” with itself.
In a letter dated March 27 but not released until today, the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei instructs local ordinaries (i.e. “bishops” of dioceses) that they are permitted to grant faculties for witnessing marriages to priests of the SSPX operating in their dioceses, given certain stipulations laid out in the document.… READ MORE

It’s Confession Time!
Today’s Edition of the Francis Show at St. Peter’s

Today it was time again for Francis’ annual “watch me go to confession” show in St. Peter’s. The video of the Vatican’s entire penitential liturgy can be viewed here; but Rome Reports has published just the relevant clip:
Presumably, no one was playing Sudoku in the confessionals of St. Peter’s today. We remember the complaint that was lodged by a young Novus Ordo priest who had experienced on several occasions that the “priests” in the basilica’s confessionals were more interested in playing games or reading the paper than actually hearing confessions.… READ MORE
