On Christmas Day, Dec. 25, 2022, the Sant’Egidio Community of Rome celebrated its 40th annual Christmas luncheon inside the Basilica of Santa Maria in Trastevere.

Vatican News reports excitedly:

Approximately 300 of Rome’s poor, homeless, and elderly people, as well as several Ukrainian refugees, attended the traditional Christmas luncheon organized by the Community of St. Egidio in Rome’s St. Mary in Trastevere Church.

After a countdown and Christmas greetings, guests were treated to generous portions of lasagna, meatloaf, lentils, and typical Christmas desserts.

‘Electric Church’ Concert profanes Vienna’s historic Votive Church

On April 29 of this year, the beautiful Catholic Votive Church (Votivkirche) of Vienna, Austria, was profaned with an infernal spectacle that must be seen to be believed.

The concerts of “Electric Church” have been defiling traditional Catholic church buildings for nearly 10 years, but always with the blessing of the official Novus Ordo authorities.

Long-time readers of this blog may recall that we first reported on Electric Church back in 2014:

A brief video review of this year’s Electric Church concert has been published on YouTube.… READ MORE

Words Fail: ‘Sacred Art’ in Austrian Chapel

What you see in the above image is not vandalism. It is much worse.

The red doodling on the walls and the ceiling is the work of Austrian artist Otto Zitko, perpetrated in 2003. He was commissioned to deface the holy space like this, apparently by the pastor.

The location of this frightful abomination is a side chapel, dedicated to St. Andrew the Apostle, that is part of St. Andrew’s parish (Sankt Andrä) in Graz, Austria. It lies within the diocese of Graz-Seckau, where “Bishop” Egon Kapellari was in charge at the time this blasphemous work was carried out.… READ MORE

‘God is a DJ and We are the Music’:
Absurd Spectacle in German Novus Ordo Parish

The Catholic church of St. Bartholomew in Klarenthal near Saarbrücken, Germany, was built from 1925-27. Today the sacred edifice is occupied by the false Catholics of the Vatican II religion.

The sanctuary worship space has the unmistakable look of the “great renewal” of the Second Vatican Council (1962-65), and really it is only the architecture of the building as a whole and the old pews that still remind one of the religion for which the church was originally built.… READ MORE

Novus Ordo “Mass” in the Ocean
— with Air Mattress Altar

UPDATES 27-JUL-2022:


Paul VI’s Novus Ordo Missae, the “New Mass” of the Vatican II Church, is the gift that keeps on giving.

While Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) is currently making an apology tour through Canada, even donning a Native American headdress and getting smudged by the indigenous, an Italian news site is reporting on a “Mass at Sea” in which an air mattress was used as an altar.… READ MORE

Mother Earth in Church:
‘Gaia’ Exhibition defiles Catholic Cathedral in Ireland


A gigantic spinning globe hangs from the ceiling of St. Colman’s Cathedral in Cobh, June 15-26, 2022

How much the world has invaded the church since the 1960s is currently on striking display at St. Colman’s Cathedral in Cobh, County Cork, Ireland.

A spinning giant replica of planet earth presently hangs from the ceiling of the magnificent Catholic cathedral that was constructed between 1868 and 1919. Called “Gaia”, after a pagan earth deity, this installation was created by artist Luke Jerram and is part of the Cork Midsummer Festival (June 15-26, 2022).… READ MORE

The Heights of Absurdity:
Rock-Climbing Wall installed in Vienna Cathedral

The Archlayman of Vienna, “Cardinal” Christoph Schönborn, has once again found a way to defile the Cathedral of St. Stephen and hold it up to the mockery of the world.

Although this time it wasn’t a homosexual prayer service, a flamboyant rock play, or a fundraising gala featuring the sodomite lobby that disgraced the sacred place, nonetheless the scandalous false shepherd once again managed to pull off an entirely farcical and unworthy spectacle in this temple originally consecrated to the worship of the Most Holy Trinity.… READ MORE

Despicable “Art” Installation at Austrian Church for Lent


“…see what things the enemy hath done wickedly in the sanctuary” (Ps 73:3)

The beautiful 18th-century Church of St. John Nepomucene (Johanneskirche) in Innsbruck, Austria, is currently being defiled with a most despicable piece of “art” that is obviously meant to profane the sacred, provoke the imagination and the emotions, and make a mockery of Roman Catholicism yet again.

The project comes with the official approval of the notorious “Bishop” Hermann Glettler, the ordinary of Innsbruck, who delights in all kinds of works that allow him to express his contempt for the sacred under the cover of promoting “art”.… READ MORE

Indelible Signs:
Free Tattoos offered in Novus Ordo church in Frankfurt

If you thought the “Show-Your-Tattoo Mass” we reported on in 2014 was bad, wait till you read this story.

On Saturday, Oct. 23, 2021 in Frankfurt, Germany, the historic 16th-century Liebfrauenkirche (Church of Our Lady), currently used as a monastic church and occuppied by clerics of the Vatican II Sect, was defiled by an absurd spectacle: For a total of roughly five hours, the church was open for people to enter and get a calligraphical tattoo imprinted on their skin, free of charge. Participants had to choose from one of eight pre-selected words or phrases.… READ MORE

Eco-Religion: “Earth Altar” installed at Novus Ordo Parish in Germany

The notorious Novus Ordo parish of Maria Geburt (“Nativity of Mary”) in Aschaffenburg, Germany, has done it again.

This past Oct. 3, while Roman Catholics were celebrating the Feast of St. Therese of Lisieux and the Nineteenth Sunday after Pentecost, pastor Markus Krauth was celebrating something else at this former, and formerly gorgeous, Catholic church.

Officially, it was the German Erntedankfest, an annual feast of thanksgiving to God for the harvest that is commemorated also liturgically. Krauth decided to commemorate it as Erdedankfest, meaning he replaced the word for “harvest” (Ernte) with the word for “earth” (Erde).… READ MORE

The Stuff of Nightmares:
“Catholic” Horror Chapel in Manila, Philippines

After focusing on so much news about Traditionis Custodes, we take a brief break today to publish another one of our famous “ugly church” posts — and here we’re using the term “church” rather loosely.

Today’s beauty comes from the Philippines. It is the “Chapel of the La Sallian Martyrs” and is part of De La Salle–College of Saint Benilde, Vito Cruz campus, in the Filipino capital of Manila. The “chapel” is located in the School of Design and Arts building, which says a lot about the school’s understanding of both.… READ MORE

An Update on Pachamama Monstrance in Mexico

PLUS: Novus Ordo Priest burns Pachamama Effigy (Video)

Predictably, countless people have been outraged over the Pachamama monstrance displayed in the Novus Ordo parish of San Juan Macías in Zapopan near Guadalajara, Mexico, in recent days. We reported on this here:

In that July 1 post, we wrote: “The pastor responsible for this great affront to God is ‘Fr.’ Juan Pedro Oriol. The archlayman overseeing the diocese is ‘Cardinal’ José Robles Ortega.” Now there has been an important update on this.

In a July 3 report on the incident, the Catholic News Agency writes via the National Catholic Register:

The notorious Pachamama idol of the Amazon Synod has now been coopted to serve the function of a Eucharistic monstrance at San Juan de Macías parish in Guadalajara, Mexico.

No Idolatry at Vatican Gardens?
Tim Staples defends Pachamama Ritual

A perfectly Catholic ceremony — according to Tim Staples

Tim Staples is the Director of Apologetics and Evangelization at the improperly-named Novus Ordo non-profit organization Catholic Answers in California. On his personal blog, he recently posted a defense of the outrageous indigenous ceremony that took place in the Vatican Gardens on Oct. 4, 2019, the eve of the notorious three-week Amazon Synod.

What had been advertised as a celebration of St. Francis of Assisi, whose feast day it was, included a bizarre ritual of dancing, singing, praying, and prostrations to the ground around a set of wooden Pachamama statues amidst other indigenous paraphernalia.… READ MORE

Brazilian “Cardinal” presides over “Memorial Mass for LGBT-Phobia Victims” featuring Drag Queen

Mr. Sergio da Rocha is the Novus Ordo Archbishop of São Salvador da Bahia, Brazil. In 2016, “Pope” Francis had the glorious idea of making him a “cardinal”, and da Rocha has not failed to deliver.

On Friday, May 21, 2021, “Cardinal” da Rocha presided over the Novus Ordo worship service that was offered specifically “in memory of murdered members of the LGBT community”, as reported by Crux on June 11. The acronym “LGBT” is a euphemism for people who engage in aberrosexual practices and claim that their propensity for sins against the Sixth Commandment is part of their “identity.”… READ MORE
