Aldo Maria Valli is a conservative Novus Ordo Italian journalist specializing in the affairs of the Vatican. He has authored a great many books, including Il Caso Viganò, Le Due Chiese, and 266: Jorge Mario Bergoglio Franciscus P.P.
Valli publishes the blog Duc in Altum, mostly in Italian. Although he has been critical of Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) for a few years now, it was not until Feb. 21, 2021, that he released the following monograph in English (the Italian original came a day earlier):

“Comfort of Migrants” – Francis adds new Invocation to Litany of Blessed Virgin Mary
The Frankster is at it again.
Today, June 20, 2020, he had his underling in the so-called Congregation for Divine Worship add three new titles for Our Lady to the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary, also called the Litany of Loreto. The first two are orthodox and not objectionable — the third one is born of Bergoglio’s liberation theology:
Mother of Mercy (Mater Misericordiae)
Mother of Hope (Mater Spei)
Comfort of Migrants (Solacium Migrantium)
“The first invocation shall be placed after ‘Mater Ecclesiæ’ [Mother of the Church], the second after ‘Mater divinæ gratiæ’ [Mother of Divine Grace], while the third shall be placed after ‘Refugium peccatorum’ [Refuge of Sinners]”, “Cardinal” Robert Sarah notes in the official letter announcing the addition of the new titles.… READ MORE
Great news, everyone: It is time again for a new episode of Francis Watch!
Novus Ordo Watch is pleased to sponsor this phenomenal quarterly podcast program, in which host Stephen Heiner of True Restoration analyses with his sedevacantist guests, Bp. Donald Sanborn and Fr. Anthony Cekada, the latest chaos perpetrated by Jorge Bergoglio, the man who claims to be the head of the Catholic Church under the stage name “Pope Francis”.
The latest episode is no. 43, and unfortunately Fr. Cekada was not able to join as he is recovering from a series of strokes.… READ MORE
Monkey Business at the Amazon Synod: A First Review
The long-awaited and much-touted Pan-Amazon Synod in the Vatican is in full swing, and the first week has seen fireworks. Whether it be an idolatrous ceremony held in the Vatican Gardens, prelates bewailing “ecological sins”, churches being profaned with paganism and indecency, Francis preparing his sheeple for a deluge of “newness”, a nun at the Vatican press conference saying she “hears confessions” in the Amazon region, or the general relator attacking priestly celibacy in his opening address — you name it, the first synod week had it on sale!… READ MORE
The Death of Vincent Lambert and the Silence of “Pope” Francis
When it concerns a matter he really cares about, Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope” Francis) always has his trap open: Whether the topic be migrants, the poor, integral ecology, sustainable development, the elderly, climate change, clean water, albinos in Africa, educational initiatives for the youth in Argentina, or the rights of the indigenous in the Amazon region — for all those causes, Bergoglio couldn’t stop his tongue from moving if his life depended on it.
Of course no one is saying that these aren’t worthy causes for the most part — that’s not the point.… 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
Francis rushes to clarify Shift in Authority for Liturgical Translations
What do you know! It’s amazing how quickly Francis can move to clarify something he has written when he really wants to.
On Sep. 9, 2017, the Vatican’s Chief Apostate released a motu proprio entitled Magnum Principium, in which he decreed a modification to the 1983 Code of Canon Law. The change concerns the final authority in matters of translation of liturgical texts, which Francis has now shifted away from the “Holy See” to national or regional episcopal conferences. Whereas formerly it was necessary for the Vatican to approve liturgical translations, the role of the “Holy See” is now one merely of confirming what episcopal conferences approve. … READ MORE
