“I can’t believe it’s not Catholic!”
Where the Sacred IS the Profane:
St. Nicholas Church in Neuried, Germany
Why make it beautiful when you can make it ugly?

The German Archdiocese of Munich and Freising, currently headed by “Cardinal” Reinhard Marx, is home to “God’s Ski Jump” as well as “Monster Church”. It is also home to many other Novus Ordo architectural crimes.
Today we would like to introduce you to the “Roman Catholic” parish of Sankt Nikolaus (St. Nicholas) in the small town of Neuried, outside of Munich. It has a beautiful old little village church (Dorfkirche) as well as a hideous modern parochial center.… READ MORE

“Cardinal” Marx’s Cracked Stone Altar
As long-time readers of this blog may recall, the Modernist Archdiocese of Munich and Freising is the home of “God’s Ski Jump”.
At the same time, the diocese does have some beautiful old and therefore traditional church buildings. Since those don’t really fit their Novus Ordo religion, however, they tend to get wreckovated. After all, such truly Catholic churches were designed for the true worship of the Triune God, and the new-and-improved “Catholicism 2.0” of Vatican II just isn’t into that sort of thing.
Even in churches where the basic traditional architecture and most of the beautiful sanctuary have been retained, the one thing they always do is introduce a so-called “people’s altar”.… READ MORE

Marx meets Marx: “Archbishop” of Munich poses with Statue of Founder of Communism
The German city of Trier recently put up a statue of Karl Marx (1818-1883), the founder of Communism.
Trier is the birthplace of this notorious revolutionary, whose erroneous philosophy and dangerous, anti-Catholic ideology is historically responsible for the deaths of roughly 100 million people in the world. (To get any idea of how many dead bodies that is, look at the one million dots on this page and mentally multiply it by 100 — if you can.) Alexander Solzhenitsyn’s The Gulag Archipelago tells the horrific inside story of Soviet Communism, which would have been impossible without Karl Marx first delivering the ideological blueprint.… READ MORE

No Saint Athanasius: “Bishop” Schneider continues to spread Errors about the Papacy
The German branch of the Vatican II Sect has recently opened its so-called “Synodal Way” or “Synodal Path” (Synodaler Weg), which is essentially an elaborate and structured series of chat sessions in which the laity get to tell their pastors what changes they want to see in the “Catholic Church” going forward. And since we’re not talking about just any country but about the Land of Luther, long one of the hotbeds of Modernism, this will produce a veritable catalog of ultra-liberal desiderata: married clergy, women priests, homo “marriage” ceremonies in church, and the like.… READ MORE

Tempest in a Beer Mug: 130 Novus Ordos and Semi-Trads protest the German “Synodal Way” in Munich
The German city of Munich, capital of the state of Bavaria, is known for its fine beer, the Hofbräuhaus, and its annual Oktoberfest. It is also home of the see of the Archbishop of Munich and Freising, a position currently under usurpation by the rotund apostate Mr. “Cardinal” Reinhard Marx.
On Saturday, Jan. 18, Munich became the place of a protest that had not been advertised beforehand. On Friday afternoon, Michael Matt of The Remnant had sent out a tweet with a first and rather cryptic announcement: “Please spread the word.… READ MORE
So who’s the protest-ant now?
Breaking: Major International Protest today in Munich against Amazon Synod Fallout
Ladies and gentlemen, things are beginning to heat up in the Vatican II Sect. Apparently on very short notice, a major international protest has been organized and is taking place today in the German city of Munich, the seat of “Cardinal” Reinhard Marx, the head of Novus Ordo bishops in the land of Martin Luther.
So far, it seems that only two web sites have reported on this taking place: The Remnant in the United States and Marco Tosatti’s Stilum Curiae blog in Italy.
Alas, the protest is going to be a silent one. … READ MORE

Get ready: Here comes the Agnus Dei Dance!
The Catholic Conference (Katholikentag; literally “Catholics’ Day”) is a national event in Germany that was first held on October 3, 1848, and since then has been repeated every 2-4 years.
What started out as a truly Roman Catholic gathering organized by laymen in the middle of the nineteenth century has become a grotesque celebration of Naturalism, Modernism, Freemasonic ideas, and everything else that is wrong with the Vatican II religion. The Katholikentag is definitely left of center even for Novus Ordo standards, and of course it comes with ridiculous liturgy to boot.… READ MORE

For 17,000,000 Dollars:
“God’s Ski Jump” opens in Archdiocese of Munich
The Modernists have done it again. With the generous support of the Kirchensteuer (Germany’s quasi-mandatory church tax), the Novus Ordo Archdiocese of Munich and Freising has put together one heck of an expensive heap of junk they call “Blessed Rupert Mayer Catholic Church” in Poing, a small town near Munich. The final price tag ended up being a whopping 14.6 million Euros — approx. 17 million U.S. dollars — and the photo above gives a first hint as to what it got them.… READ MORE

“Not Ready”: Vatican blocks German Intercommunion Proposal — for now
The Novus Ordo web is abuzz today with news about and reactions to a letter the new head of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Destruction of the Faith, “Cardinal-designate” Luis Ladaria, has sent to “Cardinal” Reinhard Marx of Munich, who is the head of the German Conference of Novus Ordo Bishops.
After Germany’s Modernist pseudo-bishops published a document in February of this year which permits the Protestant spouses of Novus Ordos to receive “Holy Communion” — acc. to Walter Kasper, without having to believe in even so much as Transubstantiation, of course — some dissenting “bishops” complained to the Vatican, and so Francis ordered the disputing parties to come to Rome for a meeting.… READ MORE

German “Bishops” cause Outrage by allowing “Holy Communion” for Protestants on Case-by-Case Basis
“Cardinal” Jorge Bergoglio at work distributing the invalid Novus Ordo cookie (video)
There is just never a dull day in Novus Ordo Land. Yesterday, the big story was that, led by the infamous “Cardinal” Reinhard Marx, the German “bishops” had decided to permit the Protestant spouses of “Catholics” to receive the Novus Ordo version of Holy Communion. This permission is to apply only, of course, in “individual cases” and only under “certain circumstances” — just like Bergoglio’s permission to commit adultery — and without “chang[ing] any doctrine”.… READ MORE

Archdiocese of Turin Organizes Lenten Retreat
to Teach “Fidelity” to Sodomite Couples
“Fr.” Gianluca Carrega
[UPDATE 06-FEB-2018 15:59 UTC: Diocese issues official statement, says retreat is in line with Amoris Laetitia but will be suspended for the time being]
Just as “Cardinal” Reinhard Marx of Munich, Germany, has gone on record advocating for a “blessing” ceremony for homosexual couples on a case-by-case basis, to be determined by the “priest or pastoral worker”, news is reaching us that the Novus Ordo Archdiocese of Turin, Italy, is organizing a Lenten retreat to teach “fidelity” to homosexual couples!… READ MORE
