CAUTION! Francis speaks!

Francis in new Interview: “I’m Rather Shy”, Mass Readings in Latin “Like Laughing at the Word of God” — and more!


Dangerous combination: Jorge Bergoglio and an open microphone

It should be a pretty safe bet to say that “Pope” Francis has never met a microphone he didn’t like. Just recently, he got to speak into one for roughly 75 minutes, and the result of that encounter was published today.

Spanish journalist Carlos Herrera has interviewed the Jesuit pseudo-pope Jorge Bergoglio at his residence in Vatican City for the radio station Cadena de Ondas Populares Españolas — COPE for short — which is owned by Spain’s Novus Ordo bishops.… READ MORE

MELTDOWN: Round-Up of Reactions to Francis’ Suppression of the Traditional Latin Mass

Now that almost two weeks have passed since the release of Traditionis Custodes, “Pope” Francis’ motu proprio “Apostolic Letter” that severely limits (and gradually eliminates) the Traditional Latin Mass (1962 Missal), a lot of reactions have poured in from various quarters of the Vatican II Church; especially, of course, from those who consider themselves traditionalists, since they are the ones negatively affected by the suppression of Benedict XVI’s Summorum Pontificum.

By phasing out the Traditional Latin Mass (aka Tridentine Mass), a decision he allegedly made based on answers procured through a questionnaire process, Francis has ripped the heart out of the traditionalists in his church.… READ MORE

GONE!
Rorate Cæli Blog Removes Picture of “Pope” Francis

The popular pseudo-traditionalist blog Rorate Caeli has not taken too kindly to the revocation of Summorum Pontificum by Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”), the man they stubbornly recognize as head of the Catholic Church while refusing him submission. Francis’ document Traditionis Custodes has thrown them all into complete shock, and by decreeing that it take immediate effect, they do not even have a grace period in which to catch their breath and gather their senses.

Now that a few days have passed since the release of the new motu proprio, it looks like the editors of Rorate Caeli could no longer stand looking at the man they supposedly honor as the Vicar of Jesus Christ on earth, Father and Teacher of all Christians.… READ MORE

From the Reserve to the Zoo: Society of St. Pius X slams Francis’ Decree against Traditional Latin Mass

On Saturday, July 17, 2021, one day after the release of “Pope” Francis’ decree Traditionis Custodes, the Lefebvrist Society of St. Pius X published a scathing but humorous response, in which it accuses the supposed Vicar of Christ of “caging” the Traditional Latin Mass and forcibly administering a “vaccination” against Lefebvrism. In this way, the SSPX contends, he seeks to marginalize Tradition-loving Catholics with the ultimate goal of driving them into extinction.

So far, the SSPX statement has been released in French only, available here.… READ MORE

Pope Pius XII on ‘Traditionis Custodes’:

The Authority of the Roman Pontiff over the Sacred Liturgy

In his landmark encyclical letter on the Sacred Liturgy, Pope Pius XII taught clearly and authoritatively:

The Church has further used her right of control over liturgical observance to protect the purity of divine worship against abuse from dangerous and imprudent innovations introduced by private individuals and particular churches. Thus it came about — during the 16th century, when usages and customs of this sort had become increasingly prevalent and exaggerated, and when private initiative in matters liturgical threatened to compromise the integrity of faith and devotion, to the great advantage of heretics and further spread of their errors — that in the year 1588, Our predecessor Sixtus V of immortal memory established the Sacred Congregation of Rites, charged with the defense of the legitimate rites of the Church and with the prohibition of any spurious innovation.

The Party Is Over: Francis kills ‘Summorum Pontificum’, severely limits Use of 1962 Missal

[LAST UPDATED: 16-JUL-2021 12:44 UTC]

Breaking news from Vatican City: Benedict XVI’s motu proprio letter Summorum Pontificum, which introduced the wide acceptance of the so-called Traditional Latin Mass, that is, the use of the Roncalli Missal of 1962, is history.

With a stroke of the pen, the phony “Vicar of Christ” Jorge Bergoglio, also known as “Pope” Francis, has abrogated the document the traditionalists in the Vatican II Church have clung to as the bedrock enabling their “Latin Mass culture”. Logical chickens are now coming home to roost.… READ MORE

Francis reportedly tells Italian “Bishops” he will revoke Benedict XVI’s Universal Latin Mass Authorization

The Argentinian Jesuit who calls himself “Pope Francis” (Jorge Bergoglio) has always been a defender of the rights of tradition. The only exception he makes is for Roman Catholic tradition.

For example, in his encylical letter on human fraternity, the false pope quotes the Chilean Novus Ordo cardinal Raúl Silva Henríquez (1907-99), saying:

Let us not forget that “peoples that abandon their tradition and, either from a craze to mimic others or to foment violence, or from unpardonable negligence or apathy, allow others to rob their very soul, end up losing not only their spiritual identity but also their moral consistency and, in the end, their intellectual, economic and political independence”.

Vatican “Cardinal” Koch: Traditional Latin Mass and Novus Ordo Rite need to be Fused Together

Guess which rite he prefers: Kurt Koch (b. 1950)

The Swiss Modernist “Cardinal” Kurt Koch is the Vatican’s chief of ecumenism. In January of 2017, he complained that there was no consensus on even so much as the goal of ecumenism. In other words, they’re all journeying, as Francis likes to say, they just have no idea towards what. All they know is that they’ve got to keep moving forward.

As an ecumenist and liturgist, Mr.… READ MORE

Semi-Trads Alarmed: Francis surveys Diocesan Bishops on Summorum Pontificum Latin Mass Culture

The well-connected and journalistically-reliable Rorate Caeli blog reports today that the Unholy See, under the direction of the apostate Jesuit Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”), has sent a survey to all his Roman rite “bishops” in the world to report on the application of Benedict XVI’s 2007 motu proprio letter Summorum Pontificum, which essentially granted all priests of the Vatican II Church the right to celebrate Mass according to the Roman Missal of 1962, commonly (though not entirely correctly) known as the “Traditional Latin Mass.”

Rorate Caeli has posted a copy of the actual survey and its cover letter, dated Mar.… READ MORE

Thesis – Antithesis – Synthesis

Ratzinger, Hegel, and Summorum Pontificum

As we quickly approach the tenth anniversary of Summorum Pontificum, Benedict XVI’s unjustly celebrated motu proprio that supposedly “freed” the Traditional Latin Mass by permitting every presbyter of the Vatican II Sect to use the 1962 Missal for the celebration of at least private Masses, we are starting to see a number of articles in the Novus Ordo press about what has been accomplished ten years after Benedict XVI’s landmark decision.

About three months after the release of Summorum Pontificum on July 7, 2007, we published our own critical analysis of the “papal” document we have justly termed a “motu inapproprio“:

“One and the Same Rite”?
How Benedict XVI’s Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum Aims to Destroy the Traditional Latin Mass

[Originally published Oct. 12, 2007; last revised April 11, 2017]

After about a year of rumors, on July 7, 2007, Fr. Joseph Ratzinger (“Pope Benedict XVI”) finally released an “Apostolic Letter motu proprio,” entitled Summorum Pontificum, on the use of the Roman Missal of 1962, the liturgical rite that is referred to by many as the “Traditional Latin Mass.” This document grants a fairly wide permission to priests in the Novus Ordo Church to use the 1962 Missal (of John XXIII) instead of the 1970 Missal (of Paul VI) for their celebration of Mass, though it does not do away with all conditions and restrictions, as we will see below.… READ MORE

Francis: Traditional Latin Mass just a “Fad” that “doesn’t need much Attention”

It’s just a “fad”, folks…

By way of the Rorate Caeli blog, news is reaching us today of something the “Holy Father” reportedly said Feb. 14, 2014, in an audience with the Novus Ordo bishops of the Czech Republic. The “Archbishop” of Olomouc, Mr. Jan Graubner, relates the following:

When we were discussing those who are fond of the ancient liturgy and wish to return to it, it was evident that the Pope speaks with great affection, attention, and sensitivity for all in order not to hurt anyone.

Francis Forbids “Old Mass” for Franciscan Religious Order

UPDATE 12/8/13 20:38 GMT

The “Apostolic Commissioner” Volpi has now officially admitted that the real reason for the suppression of the 1962 Missal for the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate is that they are “traditionalist” and perhaps even “crypto-Lefebvrian.” SEE STORY HERE.

UPDATE 8/1/13 00:35 GMT

According to Vaticanist Giuseppe Nardi, it was a mere 6 members of the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate — out of a total of 800 — who accomplished the prohibition of the 1962 Missal for their order by the Vatican. … READ MORE
