Francis’ post-synodal exhortation Amoris Laetitia has caused the predicted chaos among conservative adherents of the Vatican II religion, although a few are still in denial.

The Day Before:
Novus Ordo Adherents Apprehensive about Post-Synodal “Apostolic Exhortation” Amoris Laetitia

Don’t worry, buddy, Jimmy Akin’s got this!

What, oh what will Francis do?

Nothing shows trust and confidence in the Petrine office as the guarantee of orthodoxy and sound morals better than hysterically anticipating the theological equivalent of a nuclear detonation because “the Pope” will make a decision about whether publicly unrepentant adulterers can receive “Holy Communion”. In the Catholic Church, there would be nothing to decide on this topic. If a document were to be issued on it, it would contain one word: “No!”… READ MORE

“Pontifical” Council for the Family gives advance warning…

Vatican Heads-Up: Bishops to “Prepare All the Faithful for Reception of the Post-Synodal Exhortation”

This much is clear: Publication of the long-awaited so-called “Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation” of “Pope” Francis on the Synod on the Family, which will address the question of whether publicly unrepentant adulterers, fornicators, and sodomites can be admitted to the Novus Ordo sacraments, is imminent. If recent rumors are true, then the document is in excess of 200 pages, was drafted mainly by “Archbishop” Manuel “Smoochie” Fernandez, and was already signed by Francis on March 19, the feast of St.… READ MORE

Francis Unplugged: Hoopla ensues after Confusing Comments on Return Flight from Mexico

Links to developments & commentary below

We all knew this was coming, and it is always the best part of his trips: The expected but impromptu in-flight news conference aboard the “papal” plane, featuring Jorge Bergoglio answering questions from journalists off-the-cuff. This is Francis unplugged. Unscripted. Unfiltered. Warts and all. This usually means lots of rambling, disjointed thoughts, flowery phrases, vague platitudes, ambiguous language — lots to clean up afterwards for the various Novus Ordo spokesmen, commentators, and apologists.

It was no different this time.… READ MORE

The following report comes from the semi-traditionalist but reliable Rorate Caeli blog:

Yes, he said it over the phone to his favorite journalist, Italian editor Eugenio Scalfari of La Repubblica (the Pope’s daily and favorite newspaper), in a conversation on October 28, revealed by the latter in an editorial published this Sunday.

The Synod’s Grand Finale:

Thanks to Ambiguity, All Doors Are Open — Both Sides claim Victory while Francis slams Conservatives in Closing Speech

“Saint John Paul II offered a complex criterion that remains the basis for the evaluation of these situations: ‘…there’s a difference between those who sincerely tried to save their first marriage and were abandoned entirely unjustly, and those who through a grave fault destroyed [sic] a canonically valid marriage. Further, there are those who contracted a second union in view of the education of their children, and at times are subjectively certain in conscience that the preceding marriage, irreparably destroyed, was never valid’ (Familiaris Consortio, 1981, n.

October Surprise! Muller caves…

“Cardinal” Müller: Communion for Unrepentent Adulterers Conceivable in Exceptional Cases

As Francis’ Synod on the Family enters its last and decisive week, the German edition of Vatican Radio drops a bombshell: “Cardinal” Gerhard Ludwig Muller, the head of the Vatican’s so-called Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, argued in an interview with the German news magazine Focus that unrepentant adulterers could be admitted to Holy Communion in exceptional cases.

Here is a translation of the snippet published on Radio Vatikan (the full interview has not yet been released by Focus):

Curial cardinal Gerhard Ludwig Müller does not rule out admitting remarried divorcees to Communion “in extreme individual cases”, according to media reports.

Ousted Vatican Sodomite Prelate appeals to Francis

What do you know — the self-confessed proud-and-practicing Sodomite “Monsignor” Krzystof Charamsa, having been ousted by the Vatican from his positions in the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith [sic] and at “Pontifical” Universities, has now publicly appealed to “Pope” Francis to help the cause of homosexuals and other aberrant “-sexuals”.

The following was reported by the Austrian Novus Ordo press agency kathpress:

Vatican prelate Krzystof Charamsa, suspended for his [public] confession of being a [practicing] homosexual, has appealed to the Pope for help. He wrote a letter to Francis in which he asked him to “open the hearts of the bishops” at the world synod on the family, Charamsa said on Thursday [Oct.

Vatican Releases Full List of Synod Participants

Francis Stacks the Deck for the Synod

IN: Cupich, Marx, Dolan, Schonborn, Forte, Bode, Bonny, Kasper, Koch, Nichols, Martin, Baldisseri, Pontier, Caffarra, Wuerl, Lovey, Brunin, Danneels, Maradiaga, Tagle, Fernandez, Muller

Today the Unholy See released the official list of all participants of the “Synod on [=against] the Family” to be held October 4-25, 2015 in the Vatican. Not surprisingly, the list contains virtually all of the big names associated with promoting the idea of giving the sacraments to adulterers, many of which already met in a secret “shadow synod” earlier this year, whereas many of the “conservative” players have not been invited.… READ MORE

Masterful: Two Days after Opening Annulment Floodgates, Francis “Laments” Attack on Families

If hypocrisy could prolong your life, Francis would be immortal. The Argentinian impostor pope is a master at the pernicious art of Modernism, the “synthesis of all heresies”, as the heroic Pope Saint Pius X called it in his 1907 landmark encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis (n. 39). When one studies the tactics of the Modernists, as exposed, for example, in the Vatican-endorsed 1886 book Liberalism is a Sin, or in Pope Pius VI’s 1794 bull Auctorem Fidei, one finds that one is eerily reminded of people like “Pope” Francis.… READ MORE

Revolt Against Francis:

Curial Prelates have had enough: Anti-Francis Dossier circulating in Vatican accusing him of introducing “Catholic Divorce” — “Feelings of Physical Aggression” against Bergoglio

Once again, there is explosive news coming from Rome: High-ranking prelates in the Vatican have been exasperated with Francis for a while, but apparently we have now reached a point at which they are not willing to take any more. Francis’ recent “annulment” reform — which effectively permit drive-thru annulments and practically sanction “Catholic divorce” — is the proverbial straw that broke the camel’s back, although it is more of a dumbbell than a straw, truth be told.
