When petitions just don’t cut it…
“We accuse Pope Francis”: Semi-Traditionalist Trio publishes Book of Accusation against Jorge Bergoglio
Michael Matt, Christopher Ferrara, and John Vennari have had enough. After three-and-a-half-years of open apostasy by Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”), the semi-traditionalist newspaper trio have decided to upgrade their resistance from merely providing critical commentary and launching petitions, to issuing a Liber Accusationis (“Book of Accusation”) against the man they believe is the Vicar of Jesus Christ on earth. The charge in a nutshell: He just ain’t a Catholic. (This is something we actually pointed out from the very beginning, while Matt and Ferrara were still trying to spin Francis into a Catholic, but okay.)… READ MORE
“Saint” Teresa of Calcutta…
The “Canonization” of the Apostate Mother Teresa — Another Impossibility for a True Pope
Mother Teresa worshipping Buddha — SOURCE/DETAILS HERE
Today (Sep. 4, 2016) was the big day: “Pope” Francis declared the Albanian nun Anjeze Gonxhe Bojaxhiu (1910-97), commonly known as Mother Teresa of Calcutta, a “saint”. Not that we needed any more proof, but this is yet another definitive piece of evidence that Jorge Bergoglio’s claim to being the Pope of the Catholic Church is false. He is not in fact a valid Pope, and this proves it because canonizations of saints are infallible acts, and it is not possible that Mother Teresa, who was a public apostate, could be a saint in the Catholic Church. … READ MORE
Aug. 24 Update on SSPX-Rome Relations
Fellay Tales: “Pope Francis does not think that Canonizations are infallible” & other curious Anecdotes
On August 24, 2016, the Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X, Bp. Bernard Fellay, offered more of his usual “Fellay Tales” to his adherents, that intriguing mix of the mysterious, the incredible, and the laughable with regard to the SSPX and its relations with the Vatican, which have as their (no doubt intended) effect the continual pacification and confirmation of Lefebvrists in their current position as adherents to Bp. Fellay and the theological “recognize-but-resist” schizophrenia that characterises the Society.… READ MORE
Bizarre claims in new Interview
Benedict XVI on why he resigned:
‘I couldn’t take the Jet Lag I would get from traveling to World Youth Day!’
The bizarre spectacle that is the aftermath of Benedict XVI’s resignation first announced on Feb. 11, 2013, continues unabated. After recent absurd claims that Benedict XVI had not “fully” resigned from the papacy but was still a “contemplative member” of a “two-tier” Petrine office, today we are getting word that the main reason Benedict decided to throw in the towel was the stressful travel to World Youth Day in Rio. Riiight.
In an exclusive interview conducted by Elio Guerriero and published Wednesday, Aug.… READ MORE
Clarity on a much-misunderstood subject
Can Catholic Doctrine Change?
There is much confusion and misunderstanding, especially these days, about whether Catholic teaching can ever change, whether it has changed in the past, and if so, what this means for an infallible Church.
In a very readable and succinct article entitled “Does Catholic Doctrine Change?”, published in 1947, Fr. Francis J. Connell of the Catholic University of America tackles the issue head-on and, drawing the necessary qualifications and distinctions, shows what part of Catholic teaching can change, what cannot change, and how this relates to the Church’s infallibility and her divine mission to obtain the salvation of souls.… READ MORE
Sacrae Theologiae Summa
Summary of Sacred Theology:
Dogmatic Theology Set from 1950s now available in English — complete in 8 Volumes
Good news for all who love Catholic theology and all who have long wanted to get their hands on a comprehensive, reliable, and truly Catholic dogmatic theological manual in English: The complete dogmatic theology collection Sacrae Theologiae Summa by a group of Spanish Jesuits is now available in hardcover and ready to ship! The translator is Fr. Kenneth Baker, S.J., who has rendered the non-Latin-speaking Catholic world a tremendous service.
Unlike other multi-volume manuals on Sacred Theology, this collection was not authored by a single theologian; rather, each volume or topical section has its own author(s), all of them Jesuits.… READ MORE
Requiem for an Embarrassment
Dead on Arrival:
An Autopsy of Salza & Siscoe’s
True or False Pope?
In a brand-new 30-minute video, embedded below, a cancer-stricken Fr. Anthony Cekada provides a high-level dissection of the main problems with John Salza and Robert Siscoe’s attempt to refute Sedevacantism in their book True or False Pope? Refuting Sedevacantism and other Modern Errors. After eliminating various red herrings and emotional arguments made by the anti-sedevacantist duo, Fr. Cekada shows that the foundational argument of the entire book is fatally flawed: Salza and Siscoe, who claim to have researched this topic for 10 years, do not even get the basics right about the sin of heresy.… READ MORE
“Dear Arsonist, please put out the fire!”
“Plea to the Pope”:
VIP Lineup asks Francis to get his Act together
Well, at least it’s a serious effort they’re making, and not just a “click here to sign a petition” ad: “Bishop” Athanasius Schneider, “Fr.” Linus Clovis, and fourteen Novus Ordo life and family leaders from various countries have produced a 30-minute video in which they plead with their “Holy Father” to please stop attacking Catholicism and finally teach sound doctrine. The immediate trigger for this move was the release of Francis’ chaos exhortation Amoris Laetitia, which effectively permits unrepentant public fornicators and adulterers to receive the Novus Ordo version of Holy Communion:
The following clip is a four-minute summary, followed by the full-length video:
These clips were published by the pro-life web site Life Site News, which has also released an article to accompany the videos:
While it seems clear that these people are of good will, it must again be pointed out that it is sheer folly to recognize the manifest apostate Jorge Bergoglio as the Pope of the Catholic Church.… READ MORE
They’re at their wits’ end…
The Trouble with Jorge:
Semi-Trads at the Breaking Point
The Semi-Traditionalists are reaching their breaking point over “Pope” Francis. Jorge Bergoglio has been putting out so much blasphemous, heretical, and scandalous blather that Christopher Ferrara, the popular Remnant columnist, author, speaker, and retired attorney, can’t write commentaries fast enough to keep up with him.
The next recognize-and-resist self-help conference, scheduled for Sept. 9-11, won’t do much more than simply get the usual people together for their little “we’re the real Catholics” powwow and have exactly zero impact on the Vatican II Sect, which they still claim is the Catholic Church.… READ MORE
Response to Hilary White
Comedy Hour at The Remnant: “Francis is the Pope Until the Pope Says He’s Not”
Peek-a-boo! Is he or isn’t he?
Apparently there is a new policy in place at the semi-traditionalist flagship publication The Remnant: Bloggers can write whatever they please about the Papacy, even if it contradicts the Faith, as long as they don’t endorse Sedevacantism.
Most recent case in point: A blog post by Hilary White (pictured left) entitled, “Francis is the Pope Until the Pope Says He’s Not”. The title offers a good preview of the confused theology that follows in the body of the text, where a copious amount of hot air combines with unorthodox theological ideas to create a dangerous concoction that seeks to make up for a woeful lack of Catholicism.… READ MORE
Barnhardt goes Resignationist…
Ann Barnhardt dumps Francis,
seeks Refuge in Benedict XVI
She’s finally figured it out: Francis cannot be the Pope of the Catholic Church. The outspoken colorful controversialist Ann Barnhardt has announced on her web site that she can no longer hold that Francis is or ever was a true Pope, the Vicar of Christ. The reason for Miss Barnhardt’s change of mind is found in the very opening paragraphs of her blog post:

It is now clear to me, and I feel it morally incumbent upon me given my position to publicly state that I believe Jorge Bergoglio, “Francis” to be an Antipope, never having been canonically elected, and that Joseph Ratzinger, Pope Benedict XVI is still the Roman Pontiff.
Fr. Trytek explains why he left the Society of St. Pius X
Rev. Raphael Trytek
Cracow, February 2nd, 2006
For nearly half a century since, Christian life remains eclipsed under the propagation of what the Church has infallibly condemned over centuries as Modernistic errors and heresies, such as: 1) Religious freedom, essentially leading to the acceptance of state atheism; 2) falsely conceived Ecumenism — whether equalization of false religious doctrines to the One True Catholic Church, or acknowledgment of other religions, including even Judaism, Islam, and Paganism, as means leading to salvation; 3) the erroneous conception of the Church of Christ as not identical with the Catholic Church, but as a wider entity that includes the Catholic Church without being limited to it; 4) the advancement of one global syncretistic religion; 5) adherence to Masonic ideas, such as the propagation of alleged “natural” rights of man, which essentially becomes an expression of anthropocentrism.… READ MORE
The Vacancy of the Papal Throne since the Death of Pope Pius XII
The Chair of St. Peter in Vatican City (image: shutterstock.com)
On this page we present a slew of links to articles, blog posts, books, audios, and videos dealing with the subject matter of the Papacy, Sedevacantism, the false theological position known as “recognize-but-resist”, the Society of Saint Pius X (SSPX), the Second Vatican Council, and the Novus Ordo Magisterium. We have tried as much as possible to group the links by topic. Due to the recent publication of the book True or False Pope? Refuting Sedevacantism and Other Modern Errors by John Salza and Robert Siscoe, there is a separate group of links relating just to that.… READ MORE
