Occultists masquerading as “Traditional Catholics”
On January 12, 2021, a researcher who goes by the pseudonym Alistair McFadden and describes himself as a “traditional Catholic layman unschooled in either philosophy or theology”, published a lengthy article entitled “Observations on the Influence of the Occult in Traditional Catholic Discourse”. It uncovers unsettling facts about an occultist influence on “Traditional Catholicism” or “Catholic Traditionalism” — and here we use the term in a very loose sense.
The essay was published on the social media platform Medium and takes over an hour to read in full. Here is the direct link:
The sedevacantist media apostolate True Restoration has recently provided a summary of McFadden’s lengthy but highly-informative monograph.… READ MORE

Creative Fidelity: Burke & Schneider try to justify their “Loyal Opposition”
They prefer pre-Bergoglian Modernism: Mr. Raymond Burke and Mr. Athanasius Schneider
On the second anniversary of that much-hyped but predictably ineffective “Filial Correction”, two of the most outspoken critics of “Pope” Francis in the Novus Ordo hierarchy, “Cardinal” Raymond Burke and “Bishop” Athanasius Schneider, have once again published a document addressing the magisterial errors of their “Pope” and explaining their stance.
On Sep. 24, 2019, Messrs. Burke and Schneider issued a 3-page text entitled “A Clarification about the Meaning of Fidelity to the Supreme Pontiff.”… READ MORE

Five Novus Ordo Prelates release “Declaration of Truths” in tacit Rebuke to Francis
“Cardinals” Burke and Pujats, “Archbishops” Peta and Lenga, “Bishop” Schneider
If it seems like you’ve seen this before, it’s because you have:
On Pentecost Monday, June 10, 2019, five high-ranking prelates of the Vatican II Church have released two documents obviously meant to challenge “Pope” Francis and be an orthodox counterpart to the latter’s persistent efforts to destroy any remnants of Catholicism in souls. The two documents are the following:
Although both documents are dated May 31, they were not released to the public until today, June 10.… READ MORE

How Recognize-and-Resist Traditionalism
neutralizes the Catholic Faith
by Francis del Sarto
On May 18, 2018, during his Rome Life Forum keynote address at the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (the Angelicum) in Rome, “Cardinal” Raymond Burke declared: “We cannot fail to observe that the situation which Pope Pius XI described in 1925 has only grown worse in our time, and attempts ever more to infiltrate the life of the Church herself and to corrupt the Bride of Christ by an apostasy from the Apostolic Faith” (see video recording, 12:51ff.… READ MORE

Conservative Church Crisis Conference in Rome issues Lackluster Declaration
Saturday, April 7, 2018, saw yet another high-profile “Catholic” conference in Rome. It was, in essence, a crisis self-help conference by various conservative Novus Ordo personalities who are wondering what they can or should do in the current situation without having to deny that Francis is a true Pope. Similar events had taken place before, such as the conference in Rome on Christian marriage sponsored by the Lepanto Foundation in Dec. 2016.
Officially, the conference had the intriguing and yet smooth-sounding title, “Catholic Church, where are you going?” … READ MORE

“Cardinal” Burke’s Latest on that “Formal Correction” of Francis
Great excitement is temporarily returning to conservative Novus Ordo Land as The Wanderer has just published its second installment of a three-part interview with “Cardinal” Raymond Burke. That “formal correction” of “Pope” Francis he first announced in November 2016 was one of the topics talked about.
Here is the full text of the interview as released so far:

No Culture of Encounter: Francis apparently won’t hold Pre-Consistory Meeting with “Cardinals” again
As we learned in the last few months and especially in the past 2 days, although he constantly preaches about “dialogue”, “open doors”, and a “culture of encounter” Christians must supposedly practice, when it comes to four of his own “cardinals” humbly seeking to dialogue with him about their questions concerning the exhortation Amoris Laetitia, all of a sudden the leader of the Vatican II Sect isn’t all that into encounter anymore.
On June 19, it was revealed that Francis has been ignoring the request of “Cardinals” Caffarra, Brandmuller, Meisner, and Burke for a joint audience to resolve apparent contradictions between Francis’ exhortation Amoris Laetitia and the timeless Catholic teaching and practice regarding adultery, the state of grace, and reception of the sacraments.… READ MORE

[UPDATE 20-JUN-17 00:22 UTC: Edward Pentin reports that this letter was delivered to Francis on May 6 of this year.]
[UPDATE 20-JUN-17 12:54 UTC: Sandro Magister publishes commentary.]
Today the veteran Vatican journalist Sandro Magister published a bombshell on his blog, Settimo Cielo.
It had been mentioned before in the press that the four “dubia cardinals” — Carlo Caffarra, Raymond Burke, Walter Brandmuller, and Joachim Meisner — had requested an audience with “Pope” Francis to discuss with him the concerns they had voiced in their “dubia” (doubts or questions) concerning the “papal” exhortation Amoris Laetitia.… READ MORE
Fra. Cristoforo: ‘Cardinal Müller told Dubia Cardinals Formal Correction would risk Schism’
Once again breaking news in Novus Ordo Land: The Roman Novus Ordo cleric who goes by the pen name of Fra. Cristoforo (“Bro. Christopher”) has just published some additional information about the four “dubia cardinals” (Caffara, Brandmuller, Meisner, and Burke) and why the previously announced “formal correction of the Pope” has been scrapped.
Last week, after Fra. Cristoforo had revealed that the formal correction was not going to happen, Vatican journalist Edward Pentin sent out some tweets (see here and here) contradicting the claim, saying that the information was not correct and the formal correction was “still on.”… READ MORE
Formal Correction of “Pope” Francis
— Not going to happen?
The perpetual Vatican soap opera about the blasphemous-heretical “Apostolic Exhortation” Amoris Laetitia released last April by “Pope” Francis appears to be going into the next round.
On November 15, 2016, “Cardinal” Raymond Burke said in an interview with the National Catholic Register that there would be a “formal act of correction” of Francis if he should refuse to answer the dubia (doubts, questions) that had been submitted to him regarding certain points of doctrine contained in the exhortation:

There is, in the Tradition of the Church, the practice of correction of the Roman Pontiff.

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:

Amoris Laetitia and Concrete Cases:
A Reply to Austen Ivereigh
One of Francis’ biggest cheerleaders on and off the internet is the British writer Dr. Austen Ivereigh. He is the author of a comprehensive biography of Jorge Bergoglio entitled, The Great Reformer: Francis and the Making of a Radical Pope (2014).
As a contributor to various Novus Ordo publications, the left-leaning Ivereigh occasionally writes pieces defending Francis’ more controversial moves. One such attempt was recently published at Crux:
In this piece, which is essentially a high-level critique of the dubia submitted by “Cardinal” Raymond Burke & Co.… READ MORE
