Catholic Family News and the 100% Challenge

After the passing of John Vennari earlier this year, the new editor of the semi-traditionalist, recognize-and-resist flagship publication Catholic Family News (CFN) is Matt Gaspers. With Gaspers taking over the reins, CFN completely redesigned its web site, and the new version was launched just a few weeks ago.

Perusing the revamped CFN web site, we noticed that its “Online Store” page says the following: “Don’t miss a single issue of Catholic Family News, the monthly journal 100% faithful to the Catholic Faith of all time, and to Pope St.

Francis: “Someone might think, ‘This Pope is a Heretic’…” for saying Judas Iscariot might be saved!

We all know that “Pope” Francis says the darndest things when he gives a scripted speech, but he is absolutely priceless when speaking off the cuff because it is then that his anti-Catholic mind is revealed most candidly.

The Italian Novus Ordo television station TV2000 has been running a broadcast program called Padre Nostro (“Our Father”), featuring in-depth conversations about the Lord’s Prayer with none other than “His Holiness”, Mr. Jorge Bergoglio. These have now been released as a book, Quando Pregate Dite Padre Nostro (“When you Pray, say Our Father”), and the Italian Corriere della Sera has just published an excerpt of it.

The Errors of Michael Davies:
A Comprehensive Refutation

MICHAEL DAVIES — AN EVALUATION

One of the most prominent and influential writers of the traditionalist movement in the Vatican II Church was the English writer Michael Treharne Davies (1936-2004), shown above with then-“Cardinal” Joseph Ratzinger. No individual has written more prolifically than Davies on traditionalist issues, and probably no single layman, with the possible exception of Dietrich von Hildebrand, has enjoyed wider prominence, credibility, and trustworthiness than him. But is this respect Mr. Davies has enjoyed really well-founded?

Podcast Discussion: Novus Ordo vs. Sedevacantist

 

The Catholic vs. podcast is a Novus Ordo podcast produced and hosted by David Mary Andrew Ross. The host, who is a convert to the Vatican II Church from atheism (2009), interviews guests who have a religious position different from his own. The format is informal and conversational, and the idea is to generate light rather than heat.

On Sep. 30, 2017, in an episode entitled Catholic vs. Catholic, the host interviewed sedevacantist Stephen Heiner. The show is available for free and can be listened to here:

In roughly 58 minutes, Ross and Heiner challenge each other on a number of different issues, including the teachings of Vatican II, wolves in sheep’s clothing, the disaster of Amoris Laetitia, and the visibility of the Church.

Mullarkey’s Malarkey: Novus Ordo Blogger affirms “First Among Equals” Heresy

A lot of people these days rush to blog about Catholic theology despite not having much of a clue. (The anonymous Mundabor is a stellar example in this regard.) Instead of bothering to look up what the actual Catholic teaching is on this or that topic, people like to simply go by what seems right to them — which saves them hours of research but exposes their hapless readers to being misled on matters pertaining to their eternal salvation.

A recent example of this can be seen in the case of Maureen Mullarkey, formerly a writer for the Novus Ordo publication First Things.… READ MORE

Historical Precedent for a “Heretical” Pope?

In Brief: The Facts on Pope John XXII

At a time when countless supposed “traditional Catholics” don’t think twice about accusing an unquestionably true Pope of the past of teaching heresy or at least grave doctrinal error, it behooves us to remind everyone that instead of simply believing whatever you see posted on a blog somewhere, the safer course is to simply look the stuff up. It’s not like these questions never came up before or that no clear answer was ever put forward.

Where to look it up? Look it up where any Catholic priest would have looked it up before Vatican II: in the most recent dogmatic theology manuals approved by the Church.

First Novus Ordo Bishop to question Francis’ legitimacy

Retired “Bishop” of Corpus Christi:
‘Francis might be an Antipope!’

It has finally happened: A Novus Ordo bishop has announced that he suspects that Francis is not in fact a true Pope.

We are talking about René Henry Gracida, the retired “bishop” of the diocese of Corpus Christi, Texas. Yes, he is officially a part of the Vatican II Church, and he is in good standing to boot. You can find information about him on the diocesan web site here. We are clearly not talking about some whacko whom the Novus Ordo Sect doesn’t recognize or approve of.

Francis and the “Irreversible” Novus Ordo Liturgy: A Commentary

 

This past Thursday, Aug. 24, “Pope” Francis raised not a few eyebrows when during a special audience for some Italian liturgical congress he suddenly invoked his supposed “magisterial authority” to declare “that the [Novus Ordo] liturgical reform is irreversible.”

We reported on this and included some initial reactions from the blogosphere in the following post:

It is now time to publish our own commentary on Francis’ musings about the Novus Ordo liturgical revolution.

A brief response to “Contra Cekadam”…

Resistance vs. Sedevacantism: Fr. Cekada answers Fr. Chazal

Fr. Francois Chazal and Fr. Anthony Cekada

Fr. Francois Chazal is a priest who holds the recognize-and-resist position of Abp. Marcel Lefebvre: Recognize as valid the “Popes” since Vatican II while resisting anything they teach or legislate that appears to conflict with Church teaching or practice before Vatican II. At this point, Fr. Chazal is a part of the so-called “Marian Corps” or “Strict Observance” faction of the Lefebvrist Society of St. Pius X, which broke away from the “official” SSPX in response to Bp. Fellay’s conciliatory course with regard to the Vatican Modernists.

“Cardinal” Burke’s Latest on that “Formal Correction” of Francis

Great excitement is temporarily returning to conservative Novus Ordo Land as The Wanderer has just published its second installment of a three-part interview with “Cardinal” Raymond Burke. That “formal correction” of “Pope” Francis he first announced in November 2016 was one of the topics talked about.

Here is the full text of the interview as released so far:

Caution, the “Pope” is on the loose!

On some recent “Papal” Images…

In terms of his personal comportment, “Pope” Francis has raised not a few eyebrows since he began to grace the world with his illegitimate presence on the Chair of St. Peter over four years ago. Whether it be the hand-holding with a homo-activist “priest”, the wearing of a rainbow-colored wristband, his visual delight in receiving a copy of Martin Luther’s 95 Theses, or just images like this one, chances are that if Francis is around, there will be something objectionable, disturbing, or odd to photograph.

Semi-Trads trip over the Papacy…

The Stumbling Block of the Papacy:
Why Bergoglio doesn’t fit


At the dictation of the Holy Ghost, the first Pope, St. Peter, wrote concerning his Lord and Master Jesus Christ:

…it is said in the scripture [Is 28:16]: Behold, I lay in Sion a chief corner stone, elect, precious. And he that shall believe in him, shall not be confounded. To you therefore that believe, he is honour: but to them that believe not, the stone which the builders rejected, the same is made the head of the corner: And a stone of stumbling, and a rock of scandal, to them who stumble at the word, neither do believe, whereunto also they are set.

The “Pope” strikes again…

No Joke: Francis posts “No Complaining” Sign on his Apartment Door

You can’t make this stuff up, folks, you just can’t make it up: The Jesuit apostate pretending to be the Pope of the Catholic Church, Mr. Jorge Mario Bergoglio, apparently cannot bear not to be the center of attention even for 24 hours.

With all the maturity of a modern teenager, “Pope” Francis has now affixed a sign outside the door of his personal room at the Casa Santa Marta in the Vatican. The sign reads: Vietato Lamentarsi — Italian for “No Complaining”. Here is a close-up photo of the ridiculous stunt:

(click image to enlarge)

According to a report by Vaticanist Andrea Tornielli, Francis gave explicit permission for a photo of this sign to be taken and published:

The text right underneath the “No Complaining” admonition reads as follows in English translation:

Offenders are subjected to a syndrome of victimism that lowers the mood and the ability to solve problems.
