We realize we’ve brought this up a few times before, and we don’t want to beat the topic to death, but there are probably a lot of new readers of our site out there now who may not be aware of what happened 58 years ago today at the conclave that was taking place in Rome to elect a successor to Pope Pius XII.

As happens after the death of every Pope, so too in 1958 the cardinals gathered in the Sistine Chapel in Vatican City to determine who would succeed the late Pius XII, who had died on Oct.

Pope Pius XII
Mar 2, 1876 – Oct 9, 1958

October 9, 2016, marks the 58th anniversary of the death of the last known true Pope, His Holiness Pius XII, born Eugenio Pacelli, reigned 1939-1958. To honor and remember him, we are sharing the video below of a broadcast clip shown in 1958 at the passing of the Supreme Pontiff.

When Pius XII died, the Novus Ordo Religion was as yet unknown to the world, for it would not come into existence until later, beginning with the election during a bizarre conclave of the first Modernist Antipope, John XXIII (Angelo Roncalli).

We Had Been Warned:

Father E. Sylvester Berry on the Persecution of the Church in the Last Days (Part 2)

sylvester-berry-church-of-christThe terrible afflictions Holy Mother Church has had to endure since the death of Pope Pius XII have been predicted and prophesied in Catholic Tradition, in one way or another. In Part 1 of this series of posts, we looked at Fr. E. Sylvester Berry’s explanation of Chapter 12 of the Apocalypse and how it is a prophecy of Satan’s persecution of the Papacy; in this current post we will look at what the same Fr. Berry had to say regarding the devil’s attempt to deceive the elect by means of a false church.

This may not be new to frequent visitors of our web site, but it bears repeating, especially now: The terrible afflictions Holy Mother Church has had to endure since the death of Pope Pius XII were predicted and prophesied, in one way or another. We have had numerous posts on this topic in the past, and today we would like to call to mind one of them: The prediction made by Fr. Eugene Sylvester Berry (1879-1954), professor of apologetics at Mt.

Former FBI Consultant Claims: U.S. Intel Docs show Cardinal Siri elected Pope Gregory XVII in 1958

Former FBI consultant Paul L. Williams cites declassified U.S. intelligence documents allegedly showing that Cardinal Giuseppe Siri was elected Pope Gregory XVII at the conclave that, two days later, produced John XXIII.

Oct. 26, 1958: White smoke indicates a new Pope has been chosen

 

In 2003, former FBI consultant Paul L. Williams published a book called The Vatican Exposed: Money, Murder, and the Mafia (Prometheus Books). Although the book deals with alleged Vatican corruption in terms of money and power and has a decidedly liberal flavor, Williams also — almost as a side note — includes some straightforward, objective information on the papal conclave of 1958.

Was he elected Pope Gregory XVII

There were certain irregularities about the election during that 1958 conclave, as Cardinal Tisserant has himself acknowledged. Some say Agagianian was elected, others Siri, others some other cardinal, and that the camerlengo [=chamberlain] then annulled the election. In any case, I’m quite sure John XXIII chose his name, the name of an antipope [of the 15th century], quite consciously, to show he had been irregularly elected.

Cum Compertum (1948)

Canonical Warning on Catholics attending Ecumenical Gatherings

Editorial Comment: Novus Ordo Watch is pleased to provide the first English translation of this rare, hard-to-find document issued by the Sacred Congregation of the Holy Office of the Roman Catholic Church, dated June 5, 1948, entitled Cum Compertum. It is a canonical warning, a so-called Monitum, issued by the Church’s highest authority against Catholic involved in ecumenical gatherings with non-Catholics, very much the kind now fully endorsed and promoted by the Novus Ordo Church and its bogus “Second Vatican Council”.

Fr. Herman Kramer in 1956:

“If Satan would contrive to hinder a papal election, the Church would suffer great travail.”

In 1956, Fr. Herman Bernard Kramer published a work called The Book of Destiny, which is an explanation of the Apocalypse, the last book of the Holy Bible (otherwise known as the book of Revelation).

In Apocalypse 12:1-5, we read:

And a great sign appeared in heaven: A woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and on her head a crown of twelve stars: And being with child, she cried travailing in birth, and was in pain to be delivered.

The Holy Catholic Mass:

How the Vatican II Sect transformed the August Sacrifice of the Altar into a Liturgical “Happy Meal”

Traditional-Latin-Mass

Nowhere is the apostate nature of the Vatican II religion more evident than in what it has done to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, which is the true and perfect worship which alone is per se acceptable to the Most Holy Trinity. Thick tomes could be — and have been — written on the liturgical changes perpetrated by the Vatican II Sect, and certainly it is beyond the scope of this page to address them all. Rather, on this page we will present an overview of what has changed and then point you to resources that provide further details:

Apostates, heretics and schismatics: Rejoice!

Francis: “All the Baptized are Members of the Church!”

francis-believe-it-or-not7.jpg

Apparently the god of surprises is rearing its ugly head in the Vatican again, speaking through its favorite oracle, Mr. Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope” Francis). On November 4, the latter proclaimed more unmistakable heresy in a message to the ecumenical “Global Christian Forum”, which was holding a three-day conference in Tirana, the capital of Albania. Here are Bergoglio’s words in full and verbatim:

I extend greetings to you and all those participating in the Global Christian Forum Consultation, to be held in Tirana from 2 to 4 November 2015, as you reflect on the theme “Discrimination, persecution, martyrdom: following Christ together”.

Devotion to Our Lady of Fatima and Her Message

October 13, 2014, marked exactly 97 years since the Blessed Virgin Mary appeared to the three peasant children at Fatima in Portugal to once again beg the world to heed Her dire warnings and convert their lives and specifically to pray the Holy Rosary daily.

In this Restoration Radio broadcast, Father Benedict Hughes, CMRI, discusses in great detail the message of Fatima. While it is well assumed that most who will listen to this show are familiar with the essential message of Our Lady of Fatima already, Fr.

SANCTUS PIUS X:
Giuseppe Sarto Declared a Saint 60 Years Ago

Scourge of the Modernists, Model of Heroic Holiness:
Pope St. Pius X (1835-1914)

Today commemorates a most joyous occasion for all true Catholics: Giuseppe Melchiorre Sarto, better known as Pope Pius X, was declared a Saint of the Catholic Church exactly 60 years ago, on May 29, 1954, by His Holiness, Pope Pius XII. The canonization came less than 40 years after the death of the holy Pontiff, who had passed to his eternal reward on August 20, 1914.

To celebrate this wonderful anniversary, we are posting various video clips of the canonization ceremony presided over by Pius XII, as well as a most rare video of St.

Why the Novus Ordo Rite of Episcopal Consecration is INVALID

A Catholic Priest Explains how the Paul VI Rite of
Episcopal Consecration is Invalid due to Defect of Form

The bishops ordained in the Vatican II Church’s Roman Rite since 1968 are invalid. This is the unsettling but certain conclusion one comes to when examining the sacramental form prescribed by “Pope” Paul VI in his 1968 revision to the rite of episcopal consecration. This means that the clergy who undergo the ceremony for the ordination of a bishop in the Novus Ordo Church do not actually become bishops.

HERESY!

Jorge Bergoglio in 2010:
“Jews Still God’s Chosen People”

The attacks on Catholicism perpetrated by Jorge Mario Bergoglio, former “Archbishop” of Buenos Aires and now “Pope” Francis in the Vatican II Sect, apparently know no bounds. In 2010, then-“Cardinal” Bergoglio co-authored a book with Jewish rabbi Abraham Skorka (as we reported here), entitled On Heaven and Earth. It has since been translated from the original Spanish and published in the United States and many other parts of the world.

In Chapter 24 of this book, we find Mr. Bergoglio uttering the following incredibly bold heresy, which he bases, of course, on the Second Vatican Council (1962-65):

There is a phrase from the Second Vatican Council that is essential: it says that God showed Himself to all men and rescues, first of all, the Chosen People.

A Bizarre Anniversary:
White Smoke, Still No Pope on Oct. 26, 1958

The Mysterious Conclave of 1958
Was someone else elected before John XXIII?

It’s where all the official trouble began, it’s the one event that started it all: the conclave of October 1958, which met to elect a successor to Pope Pius XII, and, after a great many ballots and some curious shenanigans, presented Cardinal Angelo Roncalli as “Pope” John XXIII on Oct. 28. What many people don’t know is that two days prior to Roncalli’s appearance as “Pope”, namely, on Oct. 26, white smoke rose from the chimney of the Sistine Chapel already.
