Pope St. Pius X’s Motu Proprio Sacrorum Antistitum and the Oath against Modernism
When Pope Pius X was faced with the grave threat of Modernism during his reign (1903-1914), he knew he had to act quickly and decisively to stamp out this “synthesis of all heresies”, as he called it in his landmark encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis (n. 39), in which he exposed and refuted the pernicious doctrines of the Modernists at length.
The holy pontiff, who would be canonized a saint less than 40 years after his death (by Pope Pius XII, in 1954), realized that it would not be enough simply to condemn Modernism theoretically but it was necessary to take practical steps to actually eradicate it.… READ MORE
Motu Proprio of Pope Saint Pius X
Sacrorum Antistitum (1910)
Establishing the Oath against Modernism and other Laws for the Driving Out of the Danger of Modernism
None of the Bishops, we believe, can have failed to observe how that most cunning class of persons, the Modernists, though unmasked by the encyclical letter “Pascendi dominici gregis”, have not abandoned their designs on the peace of the Church. For they continue to enroll new associates and to band them together in a secret alliance, and with these they are now engaged in inoculating into the veins of the Christian people the poison of their opinions by means of books and pamphlets published anonymously or under false names.… READ MORE

Theologian in Crisis:
Eric Sammons versus the Papal Keys
The recognize-and-resist traditionalists of the Vatican II Church find themselves a difficult position. On the one hand, they utterly refuse to let go of the idea that the Jesuit apostate Jorge Bergoglio (“Francis”) is the Pope of the Catholic Church; on the other hand, they understand that there is absolutely no way anyone can follow the man’s teachings, laws, and liturgical directives without putting one’s soul in grave danger of apostatizing from the Catholic religion and/or of dying in the state of mortal sin.… READ MORE

Vatican’s Human Fraternity Extravaganza ‘Not Alone’ Flops as No One Shows Up
Getting a front-row seat wasn’t terribly difficult…
Imagine it’s the first-ever World Meeting on Human Fraternity and nobody cares.
That is exactly what happened on Saturday, June 10, in Rome. Under the ironic motto #NotAlone, the event’s organizers and contributors found themselves very much alone as they put on a nearly 5-hour long spectacle in St. Peter’s Square that almost nobody cared to attend.
#NotAlone was Quite Alone
According to the Silere Non Possum blog, “Those few people present were tourists, who didn’t stay, and friends of the Franciscan cardinal”, by whom they mean Mauro Gambetti, who is the ‘Archpriest’ of St.… READ MORE

High-Profile Jesuit: ‘I Do Not Believe in Transubstantiation’
Catholicism just isn’t his thing: the Jesuit Modernist ‘Fr.’ Tom Reese
It is rare that a Novus Ordo Jesuit comes out and states explicitly that he does not believe in a dogma of the Faith, but it does happen on occasion.
A recent example is the American ‘Fr.’ Thomas J. Reese, S.J. (b. 1945), who was editor-in-chief of the Jesuit rag America until 2005.
In a Jan. 31 article suspiciously entitled “The Eucharist is about More than the Real Presence” — a write-up meant to contribute to the “Eucharistic revival” the Novus Ordo bishops of the United States want to bring about — Reese openly proclaims his rejection of Transubstantiation, which was defined dogmatically and infallibly at the Council of Trent in the 16th century.… READ MORE

Pure Modernism: Jesuit Presbyter says the Church came from Disciples’ Experience of Jesus Christ
We know that Modernism is lurking everywhere in our day, but rarely is it found so boldly and explicitly stated as in a recent article by the Rev. Jim McDermott, S.J.
Entitled “What the Catholic Church can learn from the resurrection of Barnes & Noble”, McDermott’s monograph appeared in America, which was once a solid Catholic review but at this point is nothing but a Modernist rag, in keeping with the trajectory of the Jesuits as a whole.
But first, a quick heads-up: “Fr.”… READ MORE

Rethinking Peter Kwasniewski: A Sedevacantist Critique of his Anti-Papal Traditionalism
No Traditionalist when it comes to the Papacy: Philosopher Peter A. Kwasniewski, Ph.D.
Dr. Peter Kwasniewski has been busy “rethinking the Papacy”, and the results are not surprising.
Ever since he first identified, back in 2019, what he calls the “spirit of Vatican I” (that’s Vatican One, referring to the Vatican Council of 1870) as the fundamental problem in the church today “which it will take a mighty exorcism to drive away”, he has not ceased to attack the traditional Catholic teaching on the Papacy in one way or another.… READ MORE

The History of Christendom:
From the French Revolution to ‘Pope’ Francis (1789-Present)
The Most Rev. Donald J. Sanborn explains the history of the Catholic Church
Long-time readers of this blog may remember that years ago we presented, courtesy of True Restoration, a video lecture series on the history of Christendom with Bishop Donald Sanborn. Beginning with the Edict of Milan in the early 4th century, which legalized Christianity throughout the Roman Empire, Bp. Sanborn traced the history of the Catholic Church all the way up to, but not including, the French Revolution.… READ MORE

Francis to African University Students: Avoid the ‘Supermarket of Salvation’, but be ‘Apostles of the Earth’!
On Tuesday, Nov. 1, 2022, the Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) was busy helping university students build bridges across Africa. To that end he participated in a Zoom video conference event entitled, “Building Bridges Across Africa: A Synodal Encounter between Pope Francis and African University Students”, sponsored, among other entities, by the Pan-African Catholic Theology and Pastoral Network.
The main theme of the dialogue with university students was “Ubuntu: A culture of encounter; we all belong”.… READ MORE

Seriously: Francis claims to have a ‘Strong Devotion’ to Saint Pius X
No, it’s not a joke. It’s not fake news. And of course today is not April Fool’s Day either.
This story is not even new, but it is useful to bring it up again, since many will have either forgotten about it or never heard of it in the first place. It shows how brazen of a liar Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) is.

The Essence of Christianity according to Bergoglio
On Tuesday, July 19, 2022, the Jesuit apostate running Vatican City (Jorge Bergoglio, aka “Pope Francis”) tried to impress the world by publishing a tweet concerning the “essence” of Christianity.
It is amazing that a man who detests Scholasticism as much as he does even knows what the notion of essence is. Or does he?
Fr. Bernard Wullener’s Dictionary of Scholastic Philosophy defines the concept of essence as follows: “what a thing is; the internal principles whereby a thing is what it is and has its specific perfections; quiddity; internal constitution of a thing” (p.… READ MORE

Allocution of Pope Pius XII
Magnificate Dominum (1954)
Address of His Holiness Pope Pius XII to Cardinals, Archbishops, and Bishops on the Catholic Church and her Powers of Sanctifying and Ruling, Nov. 2, 1954
“Magnify the Lord with me; together let us extoll His name” (Ps. 33,4), for by a new favor from Heaven has Our desire been fulfilled, and at the same time We rejoice at the sight of you, beloved sons and venerable brothers, gathered before Us in such large numbers. And the consideration of the new liturgical feast of Mary, Mother of God and Queen of Heaven and Earth, which We just recently solemnly proclaimed, swells Our holy joy; for it is only fitting for her children to rejoice when they see an increase of honor accorded their mother.… READ MORE

Apostate adrift: Francis says Fraternity is “Anchor of Salvation for Humanity”
To mark the second anniversary of the incredibly important International Day of Human Fraternity proclaimed by the United Nations, the Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) released a video message on Feb. 4, 2022.
Before we critique the contents of this latest Bergoglian drivel, let’s first look at the larger context in which it appeared: the interreligious “human fraternity” project started by Francis and Grand Imam Ahmed Al-Tayeb.
The Egyptian Al-Tayeb is the grand imam of Al-Azhar University in Cairo and, in addition to Bergoglio, the other signatory to the apostate Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together, which the two formally ratified at Abu Dhabi, U.A.E.,… READ MORE
