No Holy Spirit here:
Welcome to the “Tent” Church of the Unholy Ghost

Alright, everyone, it is the liturgical season of Septuagesima, the annual two-and-a-half-week prelude to Lent. Why not practice some mortification of the eyes?

The so-called Heilig-Geist-Kirche (“Church of the Holy Ghost”) in Ergenzingen, Germany, affords ample opportunity for visual penance, and the title image above is a good start.

The “sacred” building in question is located near the city Rottenburg and part of the diocese of Rottenburg-Stuttgart, which was once shepherded occupied by the Resurrection denier and general Modernist apostate “Bishop” Walter Kasper (1989-99) before he was promoted to being the Vatican’s chief ecumenist.… READ MORE

Church of the Squashed Mushroom?
St. James the Apostle Parish in Ferrara, Italy


Don’t be deceived: The outside of the church is the pretty part!

It’s time again for one of those “ugly Novus Ordo church building” posts. Thanks to the “Great Renewal” of the Vatican II Sect, there is a sheer endless supply of material.

Today we shall look at the parish of St. James the Apostle (San Giacomo Apostolo) in the Archdiocese of Ferrara-Comacchio, Italy. The diocese is currently led by Archlayman Gian Carlo Perego, chosen for this role by “Pope” Francis in 2017.… READ MORE

Bergoglio on Holy Family Sunday…

Francis: “The Holy Family on Holy Cards Does Not Exist”

Today the Vatican II Church celebrates the Feast of the Holy Family, also known as Holy Family Sunday. (In the traditional calendar, this feast falls on the First Sunday after the Epiphany.)

For his Angelus address, therefore, Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) spoke on the Holy Family. Although it contains some typical Bergoglianisms — such as the incredibly profound observation that we were not “born magically, with a magic wand” — the substance of his address was not objectionable. Here is the full text:

Sacrilege:
“Climate Crucifix” in Salford Cathedral

The Novus Ordo Modernists occupying our beautiful Roman Catholic churches never run out of ideas for profaning the sacred. We need but recall the sickening, blasphemous “Jesus Clock” perpetrated by “Bishop” Hermann Glettler of Innsbruck, or the no-less-blasphemous “crucifix” in the seminary chapel in Graz. Both examples are from Austria, one of the hotbeds of sacrilegious “art” and architecture in Europe.

Today’s example of ridiculing and humiliating Our Beloved Savior Jesus Christ comes from the diocese of Salford, England (click image for larger version):

This abomination is found in not just any church within the diocese, however.… READ MORE

Indelible Signs:
Free Tattoos offered in Novus Ordo church in Frankfurt

If you thought the “Show-Your-Tattoo Mass” we reported on in 2014 was bad, wait till you read this story.

On Saturday, Oct. 23, 2021 in Frankfurt, Germany, the historic 16th-century Liebfrauenkirche (Church of Our Lady), currently used as a monastic church and occuppied by clerics of the Vatican II Sect, was defiled by an absurd spectacle: For a total of roughly five hours, the church was open for people to enter and get a calligraphical tattoo imprinted on their skin, free of charge. Participants had to choose from one of eight pre-selected words or phrases.… READ MORE

Homo-erotic mockery of Our Lord & Our Lady

Blasphemous Pietà Sculpture
displayed in Roman Basilica

The Basilica of Santa Maria in Montesanto is a beautiful Catholic church in Rome that was built in the 17th century. Of course it is currently occupied by the Novus Ordo Modernists, like most Catholic churches in the world, so it has long been profaned. However, its latest “art” display takes the sacrilege to a whole new level.

In the basilica, which is also known as the “Church of the Artists”, there is currently displayed a homo-erotic sculpture that blasphemously mocks Michelangelo’s beautiful and famous Pietà.… READ MORE

Novus Ordo Priest uses Papal High Altar of St. Peter’s Basilica


“Fr.” Fabio Rosini at the papal high altar on Oct. 2, 2021

This past Saturday, Oct. 2, the Basilica of St. Peter’s in Vatican City was home to an odd sight.

A simple “priest” (Novus Ordo presbyter) from the diocese of Rome offered the “Holy Mass” (Novus Ordo worship service) on the papal high altar as part of a catechetical conference that had essentially “reserved” the entire basilica. The man in question is Fabio Rosini, the diocesan vocations director.

To be clear: This was done with the full knowledge and permission of “Pope” Francis, the Vatican apostate-in-chief.… READ MORE

Spiritually Diseased Architecture:
“Resurrection Church” in Viareggio, Italy


(image: YouTube screenshot)

Eyesores are a curious phenomenon. Even though they are painful to endure, one nevertheless feels the urge to look.

A good example of that would be the Novus Ordo “Church of the Resurrection of Our Lord” (Chiesa della Resurrezione di Nostro Signore) in Viareggio, Italy, between Genoa and Florence. Clearly the architectural expression of the spirit of Vatican II, it sits in the archdiocese of Lucca, where Mr. Paolo Giulietti plays the role of “Catholic archbishop”.

The monstrosity in question, designed by Italian architect Massimo Lepore, comes with all the grace and style of a meat processing plant, at least on the outside.… READ MORE

Where the Sacred IS the Profane:
St. Nicholas Church in Neuried, Germany


Why make it beautiful when you can make it ugly?
(image: EOM/Florian Holzherr)

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

Odd Painting at ‘Papal Mass’:
WHAT IS THIS?

Today “Pope” Francis offered the Novus Ordo worship service in Šaštin, Slovakia, before returning to the Vatican (see our coverage of his press conference here).

Gracing the liturgical backdrop was a big artistic rendition of… well, we’re not exactly sure of what. But here’s what it looks like:

Surely one will be allowed to ask: Just what in the world is THAT supposed to be?

We see the upper torso of an unclothed man, quite muscular, bald, perhaps in early middle age. Is he perhaps the poor beggar of the Vatican’s 2017 harrowing Nativity scene (aka Frankie’s Horror Picture Show)?… READ MORE

In-flight press conference from Slovakia…

Francis jokes about Jewish Woman receiving “Communion”, addresses Amoris Laetitia and Abortion

Today the false pope, Francis (Jorge Bergoglio), concluded his trip to Hungary and Slovakia. On his return flight aboard Airhead One, he held another one of his notorious press conferences, where he answers questions from journalists more or less spontaneously and candidly.

A full video of the 28-minute conference has been provided by Vatican News (Italian), with a full English transcript, available here:

Most of the tidbits came in his lengthy answer given to American journalist Gerard O’Connell, who asked:

You have often said we are all sinners, and that the Eucharist is not a reward for the perfect but a medicine and food for the weak.

The Stuff of Nightmares:
“Catholic” Horror Chapel in Manila, Philippines

After focusing on so much news about Traditionis Custodes, we take a brief break today to publish another one of our famous “ugly church” posts — and here we’re using the term “church” rather loosely.

Today’s beauty comes from the Philippines. It is the “Chapel of the La Sallian Martyrs” and is part of De La Salle–College of Saint Benilde, Vito Cruz campus, in the Filipino capital of Manila. The “chapel” is located in the School of Design and Arts building, which says a lot about the school’s understanding of both.… READ MORE

An Update on Pachamama Monstrance in Mexico

PLUS: Novus Ordo Priest burns Pachamama Effigy (Video)

Predictably, countless people have been outraged over the Pachamama monstrance displayed in the Novus Ordo parish of San Juan Macías in Zapopan near Guadalajara, Mexico, in recent days. We reported on this here:

In that July 1 post, we wrote: “The pastor responsible for this great affront to God is ‘Fr.’ Juan Pedro Oriol. The archlayman overseeing the diocese is ‘Cardinal’ José Robles Ortega.” Now there has been an important update on this.

In a July 3 report on the incident, the Catholic News Agency writes via the National Catholic Register:

Nothing Sacred: Pachamama Monstrance in Mexico!

[UPDATE: Pastor Juan Pedro Oriol says this was put up during his absence, without his knowledge or permission; condemns as “really disgusting”]

Words fail at this. The image says it all.

The notorious Pachamama idol of the Amazon Synod has now been coopted to serve the function of a Eucharistic monstrance at San Juan de Macías parish in Guadalajara, Mexico.

Vaticanist Marco Tosatti broke this story on his blog Stilum Curiae, where you can find more photos of the incident and additional information:

No Idolatry at Vatican Gardens?
Tim Staples defends Pachamama Ritual

A perfectly Catholic ceremony — according to Tim Staples

Tim Staples is the Director of Apologetics and Evangelization at the improperly-named Novus Ordo non-profit organization Catholic Answers in California. On his personal blog, he recently posted a defense of the outrageous indigenous ceremony that took place in the Vatican Gardens on Oct. 4, 2019, the eve of the notorious three-week Amazon Synod.

What had been advertised as a celebration of St. Francis of Assisi, whose feast day it was, included a bizarre ritual of dancing, singing, praying, and prostrations to the ground around a set of wooden Pachamama statues amidst other indigenous paraphernalia.… READ MORE
