Darkness over Fatima…
False Lights at Fatima:
Basilica Façade profaned with Light Show
The pre-announced profanation of the facade of the Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary at Fatima, Portugal, took place as scheduled. On Oct. 12, 13, and 14, an elaborate multimedia light show called Fátima — Tempo de Luz (“Fatima — Time of Light”) was projected onto the facade of the traditional church building consecrated to the worship of God in October of 1953.
Details concerning this light show were included in our Oct. 9 post announcing the event:
Here is the official video made of the 13-minute spectacle as it was performed on Oct.… READ MORE

Fatima in the Dark: Audiovisual Light Show to be projected onto Fatima Cathedral
This coming Friday, Oct. 13, marks the 100th anniversary of the Miracle of the Sun at Fatima, Portugal, which was witnessed on this day in 1917 by approximately 70,000 people, believers and unbelievers alike. Our Lady had foretold that she would work a miracle on this day to underscore the authenticity, importance, and urgency of the message she had given to the three shepherd children at the Cova da Iria beginning on May 13 of the same year.
To commemorate this event and at the same time to close the festivities for the Fatima centennial, the Novus Ordo Sect has once again found a way to dishonor the Virgin Mary and profane the sacred: The facade of the beautiful traditional basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary is to be turned into a projector screen for an audiovisual light show to “pay tribute” to the Mother of God and the Fatima apparitions.… READ MORE
“Pope” Francis enjoys Lunch inside Bologna Cathedral
(click image to enlarge)
Countless Novus Ordo parents who have taught their children not to bring food into church, have egg on their face today, as “Pope” Francis enjoyed a “solidarity luncheon” with prisoners, poor people, and refugees inside San Petronio Basilica in Bologna, Italy. This event was featured explicitly as part of the “Holy Father’s” schedule for the day.
No doubt the usual Francis defenders will find ways to excuse this profanation of a house consecrated for the worship of God. They may point to Francis’ “magnanimity” for the outcast, seek to find precedent in King David’s eating of the show bread in the Temple (see Mt 12:3-4), or remind us that Christ first gave people to eat before He instructed them (see Jn 6).… READ MORE

Blasphemy, Heresy, Sacrilege:
Francis’ Chaos in Colombia
Embed from Getty Images
When someone like “Pope” Francis spends more than 4 days in Colombia, you know he will leave a huge mess to clean up. And indeed, in addition to Francis’ remarks about social inequality and his blessing of the adulterous union of the Colombian President and his mistress, there is a lot more to talk about.
As providing an examination of all the errors, heresies, sacrileges, and blasphemies the man committed during his “Apostolic Journey” would prove too daunting of a task, we will restrict ourselves to only a few select items that stand out.… READ MORE

There He Stands:
Francis’ Stiff Knees return for Corpus Christi
We knew it was going to be bad, we just didn’t know exactly how bad: the feast of Corpus Christi in Rome today, presided over by the world’s most notorious apostate, “Pope” Francis.
Now we know.
The Corpus Christi festivities were celebrated in Rome on a Sunday this year, a first for the Eternal City. In May, Francis had moved the observance from the traditional Thursday to Sunday because “a Sunday procession would be easier for people to attend and would also cause less inconvenience in Rome” (“Pope Francis moves Corpus Christi procession to Sunday”, Catholic Herald, May 18, 2017).… READ MORE

Blasphemy at Fatima:
The “Basilica of the Holy Trinity”
On May 13, we celebrated the 100th anniversary of the first apparition of Our Lady of Fatima. While most people are probably familiar with the beautiful Basilica of Our Lady of the Rosary at the site of the apparitions, constructed from 1928-1953, many people may be unaware of the Modernist monstrosity that the Vatican II Sect has placed right across from the traditional basilica. It is officially called the “Basilica of the Holy Trinity” and was opened in 2007. In 2004, when construction was just beginning, “Pope” John Paul II gave a fragment of the Vatican’s tomb of St.… READ MORE

Another abomination of desolation…
Anglican Liturgy celebrated in St. Peter’s Basilica
Today is the fourth anniversary of Jorge Bergoglio’s election as head of the apostate Vatican II Sect. What’s a fitting way to mark that special day? How about an Anglican liturgy inside St. Peter’s Basilica at the altar of the Chair of St. Peter?
That’s exactly what happened today.
Curiously, the event was not advertised very much; but on Feb. 7, readers of this blog were informed of the upcoming sacrilege:
It remains to be seen if there will be a decent amount of news coverage or if the Vatican and other Novus Ordo news outlets will try to keep reporting on this to a bare minimum. … READ MORE

A very important reality check
Hey, Dubia Supporters! Where were you when John Paul II allowed Protestants to receive “Communion”?

These days a good portion of the Novus Ordo world is up in arms about “Pope” Francis’ attempts to permit unrepentant public adulterers to receive the [Novus Ordo] sacraments, and rightly so. A veritable schism seems to be forming at this time, as countless clergy and laymen are rallying behind the four no-compromise “cardinals” who have made it clear that they will not stand for this attempt to dispense from the Sixth Commandment.… READ MORE

Profanation in Cologne:
“SilentMOD” Light & Music Show inside Historic Cathedral as Part of Local Video Game Trade Fair
The High Cathedral of St. Peter in Cologne, Germany, is one of the most complex and beautiful church buildings in the entire world. Construction of the breathtaking architectural marvel lasted for 632 years, beginning under Pope Innocent IV in 1248 — when St. Albert the Great was still alive — and ending in 1880 under Pope Leo XIII.
This beautiful sacred building is currently undergoing Novus-Ordo-approved profanation by means of a music and light show in connection with the annual local video game trade fair known as Gamescom.… READ MORE
The “Catholic Woodstock” is back…
World Youth Day 2016:
“World Youth Day” (WYD) is a major Novus Ordo event that occurs every 2-3 years and was begun by “Pope” John Paul II in 1987. It has been dubbed by the secular media the “Catholic Woodstock”, and for good reason.
This year’s World Youth Day is taking place in Cracow, Poland, beginning on Tuesday, July 26 and ending on Sunday, July 31. The official logo for this year’s WYD is displayed above. As usual, it is abstract, bizarre, ugly, and anyone’s guess as to what it’s supposed to signify.… READ MORE
Dedication scheduled for July 25
House of Horrors:
Hideous New SSPX Church in Madrid
In Madrid, the capital of Spain, the Society of St. Pius X spent the last few years building a new church. The building has now been completed, and the solemn dedication ceremony is scheduled for this coming Monday, July 25, which coincides with the parish’s titular feast, for the church is dedicated to St. James the Greater, Apostle.
Normally, none of this would be news, for the SSPX builds new parish churches around the globe all the time. The case of St. James the Apostle Church in Madrid, however, is different, because the exterior of the now-completed building is so hideous that it might as well be a Novus Ordo church.… READ MORE
