New Ratzinger article published…

Benedict XVI: No Mission to the Jews, just Dialogue

Instead of remaining silently retreated in his little safe house in Vatican City, “hidden from the world”, as he had initially promised, Fr. Joseph Ratzinger — a.k.a. “Pope Emeritus” Benedict XVI — has once again inserted himself into the world of theological discourse. Although he speaks with much greater finesse and academic credibility than his boorish successor, the blasphemies he utters differ at best in degree, not in kind.

The German theological journal Herder Korrespondenz just released its December 2018 edition. On the cover, pictured above, we see Benedict XVI next to the words Die Entgegnung — “The Rejoinder” — because in this issue the retired “Pope” responds to those who had blasted him for an essay published in the July/August 2018 issue of Communio, wherein Ratzinger had dared to assert that “[t]he [Novus Ordo] formula of the ‘never-revoked covenant’ [between God and the Jews] may have been helpful in a first stage of the new dialogue between Jews and Christians, but it is not adequate in the long run to express the magnitude of the reality in a way that is passably appropriate” (source; our translation).

As always, it is loaded with real traditional Catholicism, hard-hitting refutations of various errors, and razor-sharp analysis. Our content is typically challenging but is always delivered with a relieving touch of humor.

TRADCAST 023 consists of two separate segments. In the first, we look at how Sedevacantists are truly the “last Catholics”, those who believe exactly what was believed and taught until Pope Pius XII died and refused to change their religion afterwards.

“It is a duty that we owe”!

Francis tells the World to Convert… to Clean Energy!

Who says Francis does not tell people to convert?!

Just this past Saturday, Jorge Bergoglio — the man who styles himself “Pope Francis” — told an audience of leading energy executives gathered in the Vatican that they must convert. That papal pretender was talking about a conversion to clean energy and not to Jesus Christ or Catholicism, stands to reason. He is, after all, a Naturalist, and his mouth speaks what is in his heart (cf. Lk 6:45; Lk 12:34), which is above all the temporal concerns of the natural world.

Life of Buddha: Francis gifts Manuscript celebrating Paganism to President of Myanmar

Beware of 21st-century Jesuits bearing gifts!

When Francis visited the Asian nation of Myanmar in late November, he gave, as is customary, a diplomatic gift to the country’s president, who is the official host; and, being the guest, he received one in return. President Htin Kyaw, who is a Buddhist, gave Francis a set of porcelain wares and also a painting of the Lord Jesus Christ. “Pope” Francis, who claims to be the Vicar of Christ and head of “the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth” (1 Tim 3:15), gave President Kyaw a Vatican-produced manuscript entitled Life of Buddha.

September “Pope Video” Shows People Walking Backwards

Francis always likes to talk about “moving forward” (see examples here, here, here, and here). No matter whether you’re standing in the middle of a field, at the top of a mountain, or on the edge of a cliff, for Francis there is only one direction: forward!

It is no coincidence that “forward” is one of the chief mottos of Marxists. Add to that Francis’ repeated statements in favor of Communism (for example, see here and, more recently, here), the good time he had with Communist dictator Fidel Castro, the mentoring he received from Communist Esther Ballestrino de Careaga, and his delight in receiving a blasphemous hammer-and-sickle crucifix from Bolivian President Evo Morales, and a clear picture emerges.

Guess what: a new interview!

Francis: “I am a Sinner and am Fallible”

Those who thought that since “Pope” Francis is on retreat this week, we wouldn’t hear anything from him until he returns, will now have their illusions shattered: Tomorrow’s edition of the German weekly Die Zeit features a substantial interview with the chief Modernist of the Vatican II Church. The full text of the conversation, which is only available to paid subscribers, was released electronically on Mar. 8:

Francis denounces Converting the Orthodox as “Great Sin Against Ecumenism”

As you may have heard, Antipope Francis is currently doing mischief in Georgia — no, not the U.S. state of Georgia but the country of Georgia in Eastern Europe, which has a Novus Ordo population of approximately 2%. He traveled there on Friday and will stay until Sunday morning, when he flies to neighboring Azerbaijan before returning to Rome on Sunday night.

This being his 16th (!) “Apostolic Journey” in 3.5 years, the otherwise carbon-emission-conscious pretend-pope has been burning a lot of jet fuel for… well, for what exactly?

His Holiness, Pope Leo XIII
Apostolic Letter to Cardinal Pietro Respighi, Vicar General of Rome

On Protestant Proselytism in Rome (1900)

Apostolic Letter of His Holiness Pope Leo XIII, in which he laments and condemns the preaching and proselytism of Protestants in the city of Rome, Italy.

To M. Pietro Cardinal Respighi, our Vicar General,

Lord Cardinal,

Already, from the first moments of Our Pontificate, We had to indicate, as one of the most deplorable harm that is the change in the order of things in this capital of the Catholic world, the ardent proselytism of heresy and, consequently, the peril which the Faith of Our people was exposed to.

Akin vs. Akin: Let’s get Technical!

Which Jimmy Akin will you read today?

It’s funny how things work in Novus Ordo Land, where the main focus is not on defending the truth but on defending the increasingly absurd idea that Jorge Bergoglio is the Pope of the Catholic Church (“Francis”).

Jimmy Akin is a senior apologist at so-called Catholic Answers in California, and he is notorious for coming quickly to Francis’ defense whenever the latter opens his Modernist mouth and says what he really thinks, which is usually at odds with Catholic doctrine and dogma.

Francis and the Gospel of Man

francis-cross.jpg

Bergoglio’s cross has no Christ on it because in his gospel
the Redemption is essentially irrelevant

On May 12, 2015, the leader of the Vatican II Sect, Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”), used the opportunity of the 20th General Assembly of Caritas Internationalis to preach a sermon advancing his false humanist gospel that reduces the essence of Christianity to the service of the earthly needs of our neighbor, as though God became incarnate simply to encourage us to feed the hungry, shelter the homeless, and give alms to the poor.

The full text of Francis’ sermon can be found here:

Co-opting the Scripture reading of Acts 16:22-34 for his humanist agenda, Francis claimed:

The story tells us that the man immediately took the necessary steps on the path towards faith and salvation: together with his household, he listened to the Word of the Lord; washed the wounds of Paul and Silas; received Baptism with his entire family; and finally, full of joy, he welcomed Paul and Silas into his home, setting the table and offering them something to eat.

Two-Faced Francis:
The Contradictions of Jorge Bergoglio

janus-francis.jpg

Francis is clearly the most blatant Modernist of all the Novus Ordo Antipopes. He perfectly embodies the spirit of Vatican II and is the veritable incarnation, as it were, of the conciliar document Gaudium Et Spes. Like the Modernists and other innovators condemned by the Church, his chief characteristics include audacity and love of novelty. The following two passages taken from magisterial documents are very applicable to the entire frame of mind advanced by the Second Vatican Council and embodied fully by Jorge Bergoglio:

As for the rest, We greatly deplore the fact that, where the ravings of human reason extend, there is somebody who studies new things and strives to know more than is necessary, against the advice of the apostle.

This story needs no commentary because it speaks for itself. Jorge Bergoglio is not a Catholic nor a Pope — he is an apostate. What we are seeing here are the next steps in the amalgamation of all religions into one, the prelude to the Antichrist.

“Pope Francis and Rabbi Skorka make history in the Vatican”
by Gerard O’Connell, Rome

Never before in the history of Christian-Jewish relations have a Pope and a Rabbi celebrated their friendship by living in the Vatican together for several days, sharing all meals, including on two Jewish festivals and the Sabbath at which the Rabbi said prayers in Hebrew, and discussing what more they can do together to promote dialogue and peace in the world.
