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.
Totally edifying, no?
Welcome to ‘Garnet Chapel’ in Austria
Nothing expresses the new religion of Vatican II better than the bizarre “sacred” art and architecture that have accompanied it. On this blog, we occasionally feature some of the worst examples in that regard.
Today we would like to showcase the so-called “Garnet Chapel” (Granatkapelle) in Tyrol, Austria. It was constructed in 2013, the year Jorge Bergoglio became “Pope Francis”. Not that there is any kind of connection there, but it does fit, since the chapel is built in the shape of what is called a “rhombic dodecahedron”, and Francis is a big fan of polyhedrons, at least philosophically (see ‘Apostolic Exhortation’ Evangelii Gaudium, n.… READ MORE

‘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

Flemish Novus Ordo Bishops authorize Liturgy of Blessing for Same-Sex Couples
“Cardinal” Jozef de Kesel, promoted by Francis, is the leading culprit behind this abominable sacrilege
The Novus Ordo bishops of Flanders, a Dutch-speaking region in northern Belgium, have concocted a little liturgical rite for the blessing of sodomite couples.
On Tuesday, Sep. 20, 2022, the Belgian Bishops’ Conference, led by “Cardinal” Jozef de Kesel (b. 1947), the archlayman of Malines-Brussels, published a press release announcing the creation of a diocesan point of contact called “Homosexuality and Faith”:
The newly-instituted department is marketed as an outreach division for “the pastoral care and guidance of homosexual persons within the Flemish Catholic Church.”… READ MORE

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.
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
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

Francis on Biden’s Extreme Abortion Support:
“I leave it to his Conscience and that he speaks to his Bishop”!
Since late June, there has been a flurry of wide-ranging interviews with “Pope” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio), lest your summer should be calm and peaceful and, worst of all, Bergoglio-free.
The latest one is the fourth in quick succession, and was conducted and released by the Mexican-American TelevisaUnivision. In the United States it aired yesterday, July 11, on Univision.
The entire conversation, conducted in Bergoglio’s native language, Spanish, lasted two hours, and it underscores once more that the apostate from Buenos Aires likes nothing more than to hear himself talk, offering his infinite wisdom to this poor world.… READ MORE

Jorge Bergoglio and the “Art” of Celebrating the Novus Ordo Liturgy

On June 29, 2022, the Jesuit apostate Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) issued a so-called Apostolic Letter, entitled Desiderio Desideravi. The title is taken from the holy Words of our Lord Jesus Christ at the beginning of the Last Supper: “With desire I have desired to eat this pasch with you, before I suffer” (Lk 22:15).
The subject matter with which this letter concerns itself is that of the Sacred Liturgy, or, in Vatican II speak: “on the liturgical formation of the People of God”.… READ MORE

St. John’s Abbey Church in Collegeville, MN

Today we would like to introduce you to a gem of Brutalist architecture, the famed church associated with St. John’s Abbey in Collegeville, Minnesota.
The architect who committed this eyesore is Marcel Breuer (1902-81), who is also responsible for St. Francis de Sales church in Norton Shores, Michigan.
Design and construction of this church began in the 1950s, so one can see how deeply the spirit of Modernism and the subsequent Vatican II religion was alive and well during that time.… READ MORE

Muslim Politician given Novus Ordo Eucharist at ‘Catholic Congress’ in Germany

The 102nd edition of the notorious German Katholikentag (“Catholic Congress”) is currently underway in the city of Stuttgart. The official web site has a section for English speakers here.
The Katholikentag (pronounced cut-oh-LEAK-un-tuhg) has genuinely Catholic origins in the 1800s, but since at least 1968 it has been an insufferable sewer of anti-Catholic ideas and rebellion against God’s order. At this point it is an utter cesspool of Modernism, Indifferentism, feminism, Marxism, environmentalism, sexual immorality, and liturgical chaos — to be outdone only by its Lutheran counterpart.… 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

Behold the “New American Catholic” of 1968
Fr. William Nerin (1926-2020) presides over a liturgical travesty
In the last post, we saw that Paul VI himself came up with the expression “Conciliar Church” in March of 1966 to describe the ecclesial monstrosity his Second Vatican Council had created.
In the present post, we will look at some of the first fruits, so to speak, of that New Church in the United States.
In June of 1968, the American TV channel NBC aired a 50-minute documentary entitled The New American Catholic, and it shows how unrecognizable this new “Catholic Church” was less than 10 years after Pope Pius XII had died.… READ MORE

Eyesore in the Sanctuary: ‘Cardinal’ Schönborn consecrates ‘IKEA Altar’ in Dominican Church in Vienna
The apostate Vatican II Sect has lots of “false apostles [who] are deceitful workmen, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ” (2 Cor 11:13).
One of the worst of them all, however, is Christoph Schönborn, O.P., as will be shown later. The 77-year-old has been the “cardinal-archbishop” of Vienna, Austria, since 1995, and even though he is already two years past mandatory retirement age, “Pope” Francis has still not accepted his resignation.
This past Sunday, on Mar. 27, 2022, Schonborn presided over the consecration of a new altar in the Baroque-style Dominican Church of St.… READ MORE

A Reality Check on the Sacred and the Profane
When it concerns man rather than God, he gets serious: The apostate pseudo-pope Jorge Bergoglio
You know something is off when Francis complains about sacrilege. He’s just not into religion enough to be concerned about the profanation of the sacred. In fact, if there is one thing he is really good at, besides uttering heresy and blasphemy, it’s committing sacrilege.
His placing of an offering to the “Mother Earth” goddess Pachamama on the high altar of St.… READ MORE
