Commentary on the “Papal” Interview

A Big Mouth Open for Modernism:
The Bergoglio Manifesto

More Vatican II. Once you manage to get through all the Modernist drivel, that’s the essential message of the interview Jorge Mario Bergoglio, a.k.a. “Pope” Francis, gave to his fellow-Jesuit layman, the Rev. Antonio Spadaro, editor-in-chief of La Civilta Cattolica, published on September 19, 2013. (The full text of the interview, together with the most important quotes highlighted and links to sundry commentaries from various sources, can be accessed here: “Francis Makes a Mess”.)

Bergoglio is 100% a man of the Second Vatican Council, and in this 12,000-word interview he resuscitates all the old 1960’s liberal slogans and ideas to promote essentially a theological “flower-power” for his church.

Why Sedevacantism?

A Conversation with a Sedevacantist Priest

Tired of reading long and complicated articles on traditionalist issues? Then watch this calm, insightful conversation in which Fr. Anthony Cekada explains very simply why only the sedevacantist position is the truly Catholic position to take with regard to the Vatican II Church and the apostasy it has engendered, and how we can know this for certain. As a former member of the Novus Ordo Church and also the Society of St. Pius X, he narrates his own conversion from a “conservative” Novus Ordo position to sedevacantism.… READ MORE

We Had Been Warned:

Rev. Sylvester Berry in The Apocalypse of St. John:

berry-apocalypse-john

“The Papacy will be Attacked by all the Powers of Hell… the Church will suffer great Trials … in securing a Successor upon the Throne of Peter… The Church [will be] deprived of her Chief Pastor…”

In 1921, Fr. E. Sylvester Berry (1879-1954) published a wonderful commentary on the scriptural book of the Apocalypse (also known as the book of Revelation). With careful analysis and gifted insight, Fr. Berry comments on every passage found in the last book of the Bible.

In view of what has transpired in the 20th century in the Roman Catholic Church, and the counterfeit “Catholic” church that was set up after the death of Pope Pius XII in 1958 (which the same Fr.… READ MORE

Response to “Catholic Answers”

Rejoinder from the “Rad Trads”

Chances are you’ve heard of an organization called Catholic Answers in Southern California. This enterprise was founded in 1979 by Karl Keating and has effectively become the de facto bulwark of the Novus Ordo religion in the United States. They follow a policy of strictest adherence to the Novus Ordo Vatican in all things and so are Novus Ordo and modernistic to the core, yet with that “conservative” veneer that keeps many trapped inside the Conciliar Church.

On May 31, 2013, their Catholic Answers Live radio show featured a program entitled “Radical Traditionalism”, which was dedicated to refuting the errors of the Society of St.… READ MORE

In View of John Paul II’s Impending “Canonization”

Decision Time for The Remnant:

Is the Novus Ordo Church the True Church or a Counterfeit Church? 

For decades the semi-traditionalists at The Remnant have been reporting on the apostasy of the Vatican II Church: its evil disciplines, its erroneous and heretical teachings, its impious liturgical laws, its scandalous clergy, its wicked practices. In short, they have been making the overall case that the Novus Ordo Church is the exact opposite of a trustworthy guide in matters of eternal salvation, that it is not the Ark of Salvation but the Ark of Damnation.… READ MORE

Reality Check for Non-Sedevacantists…

Demonstrating the Folly of the False Traditionalist ‘Recognize & Resist’ Position

Inspired by a recent suggestion from Mr. Stephen Heiner of True Restoration, we have decided to illustrate the absudity of the false traditionalist “recognize and resist” position by taking a recent article from Mr. John Vennari, one of the main propagators of this position in the United States, and substituting every mention of “Francis” with the phrase “Vicar of Jesus Christ on Earth”, which Mr. Vennari absolutely insists is exactly who “Pope” Francis is. The recognize-and-resist view is essentially the position that true Catholics must recognize the Vatican II church and its hierarchy as the true Catholic Church of Jesus Christ and as the legitimate Roman Catholic shepherds (in contrast to sedevacantism, which denies that the Vatican II church is the Catholic Church or its clerics are Roman Catholic authorities), yet resist them in any and all matters pertaining to faith, morals, church government, or worship inasmuch as these are harmful, impious, erroneous, sacrilegious, or heretical.

Calls Bergoglio a Theological “Train Wreck”…
John Vennari of “Catholic Family News”

John Vennari: “I would never allow Pope Francis
to Teach Religion to my Children”

Mr. John Vennari is the editor of the traditionalist but anti-sedevacantist (which we call “semi-traditionalist” or “neo-traditionalist”) monthly paper Catholic Family News. He is one of the few semi-traditionalists whose belief in the claim to the papacy of the leaders of the Novus Ordo Church since 1958 does not cause him to disregard or minimize the ugly facts about these men with regard to their theology and morals. (In this, he distinguishes himself from many of his colleagues, such as the Rev.… READ MORE

Consider the Evidence…

Concerning an SSPX Dossier on Sedevacantism
by Mr. John Lane

In 2004, Fr. Dominique Boulet, SSPX, published an article entitled “Is that Chair Vacant? A SSPX Dossier on Sedevacantism”. Mr. John Lane, a sedevacantist from Australia, has taken it upon himelf to analyze and refute Fr. Boulet’s work, step by step. The 84 page document, linked below in PDF, is well worth the read.

“The entire force of the Conciliar revolt comes from the fact that it has apparently been imposed by the authority of the Church. How many bishops, priests, religious, and laymen, would have swallowed the lies of the heretics if they had not believed themselves bound to do so by the voice of Christ’s Vicar on earth?

The ‘Voris Virus’ Strikes again…

A WWF Papacy?

On April 12, 2013, Michael Voris’ ChurchMilitant.TV released the rollowing Vortex broadcast:

In case you missed our first post on the ‘Voris Virus’, we defined it as “the refusal to report those inconvenient facts that contradict the agenda you want to push on your audience”. The April 12, 2013, broadcast of the Vortex, entitled “WWF Papacy!!!”, is another textbook example of that. Hardly able to contain his excitement, the anchor reports: “…the liberal-progressive-modernist gang [is] freaking out that Pope Francis is actually – Catholic!”

What makes Mr. Voris assert such an absurd idea?… READ MORE

Habemus Jorge…

Francis: “Call Me Jorge”

The Novus Ordo Church is once again its own best parody. You simply cannot make this up. If you thought that “Fr. Chuck” and “Bp. Fred” were bad, watch out — here comes….“Jorge”!

The following is a quote from the article “Call Me Jorge” by Dr. Marian Horvat (link to full article here). Keep in mind that Horvat and her Tradition In Action apostolate mistakenly believe Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) to be the Pope of the Roman Catholic Church — a laughable idea that Novus Ordo Watch firmly rejects. Nevertheless, the article is a most interesting read and very illustrative of the attack on all things Catholic that has been perpetrated by the False Novus Ordo Church since its inception in 1958:

“José María del Corral, director of the ‘School of Neighbors’ educational program in Buenos Aires was one of the Pope’s special guests at his Inaugural Mass….

Pope? Nope!

Non Habemus Papam…

Pope? Nope!

Jorge Bergoglio’s constant and excessive display of “I’m way too humble to be doing this the way my predecessors did” is getting old and annoying. But it is very interesting that his actions are basically screaming, “I am not the Pope!” Of course, even this isn’t enough for the anti-sedevacantist “recognize but resist” crowd, but apparently nothing will ever be. The following news article should be shocking to anyone who considers himself a traditional Catholic and believes Mr. Bergoglio to be the Pope of the Catholic Church:

As should be getting woefully apparent now even to those at first in denial, this new “papacy” of Bergoglio-Francis is dealing a tremendous blow to the Benedict XVI fans and their “restoration of Tradition” movement (long ago exposed by us as being based on wishful thinking, not fact).

“Satan will imitate the Church of Christ to deceive mankind; he will set up a church of Satan in opposition to the Church of Christ”

In 1927, Fr. E. Sylvester Berry, professor of apologetics at Mount St. Mary’s Seminary in Maryland, wrote the following in his apologetic and dogmatic treatise on the Catholic Church:

The prophecies of the Apocalypse [book of Revelation] show that Satan will imitate the Church of Christ to deceive mankind; he will set up a church of Satan in opposition to the Church of Christ.

Put on Your Surprise Face:

Canadian Novus Ordo Priest picked by Vatican for Conclave Reporting utters Heresy, says Pope is mere “Figurehead”, “First Among Equals”

Rosica on Mansbridge One on One

In an interview shown on Canadian television, the Vatican’s man for English-language reporting on the upcoming conclave, “Fr.” Thomas Rosica, has unashamedly uttered heresy against the dogma of the nature of the papal primacy. The video clip is available here; the heresy is uttered at the 7:28 min mark.

Here is a transcript of the relevant part:

Fr. Rosica: “[…]The leadership of the papacy requires somebody who can connect with people somebody who has health somebody who can move around and not be afraid of long flights.

Stumbling At the Finish Line:
Another Look at the SSPX’s Illogical Stance on the Pope Question

Commentary by Francis del Sarto

The strange ecclesial soap opera that is the series of on-again, off-again negotiations between Benedict XVI and the Society of St. Pius X in 2012 took yet another curious turn in mid-September 2012, when the SSPX’s Bishop Bernard Tissier de Mallerais revealed the contents of a confidential letter sent back in the summer by Benedict to Bishop Bernard Fellay, head of the Society.

According to Bp. Tissier:

On 30 June 2012 – this is a secret but will be revealed to the public – the Pope himself wrote a letter to our Superior General, Mgr.
