Just an “imprudent application of the communion of saints”, eh?

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

Is Jesus Christ a “Divine-Human Person”?
A New Heresy from Antipope Francis

As discussed in our most recent podcast, on Wednesday, Apr. 28, 2021, the false pope Jorge Bergoglio (“Francis”) dropped the following bombshell at his weekly General Audience “catechesis” lesson:

Here, then, is the grace of Christian prayer: Christ is not far away, but is always in a relationship with us. There is no aspect of his divine-human person that cannot become a place of salvation and happiness for us. Every moment of Jesus’ earthly life, through the grace of prayer, can become immediate to us, thanks to the Holy Spirit, the guide.

Reaction roundup…

The Francesco Fiasco: Novus Ordo Land reels from “Papal” Comments on Sodomite Civil Unions

When the news broke on Oct. 21, 2020, that Francis had endorsed legal protections for homosexual couples in an interview aired as part of the new documentary Francesco, it wasn’t difficult to predict that a firestorm of reactions would erupt — and boy, did it!

Before long, a veritable panoply of widely differing reactions presented itself: From irritated cries of “fake news” all the way to shrugs of “nothing new here”, from exasperated condemnations to enthusiastic applause, from “this has no authority” to “this indicates a shift in the Church” — the reactions of Vatican II “Catholics” were as varied as the liturgical chaos one finds in any Novus Ordo diocese.… READ MORE

The Battle Over Novus Ordo Apologist Salaries and the Conflicts of Interest They Generate

The Numbers

Sparks are flying in Novus Ordo Land. On August 29, 2013, ChurchMilitant.TV‘s senior executive producer and host of The Vortex Michael Voris — the man whose haircut that makes him look like a mixture between Justin Bieber and the Doctor Who of the late 1960s — caused quite a ruckus among those members of the Vatican II Sect that are often described as (and consider themselves to be) “conservative Catholics”. He did this by calling to his viewers’ attention the (publicly available) salary figures of the highest income earners at various popular Novus Ordo organizations, including the well-known Catholic Answers in Southern California.… READ MORE

Response to “Catholic Answers”

Rejoinder from the “Rad Trads”

Chances are you’ve heard of an organization called Catholic Answers in Southern California. This enterprise was founded in 1979 by Karl Keating and has effectively become the de facto bulwark of the Novus Ordo religion in the United States. They follow a policy of strictest adherence to the Novus Ordo Vatican in all things and so are Novus Ordo and modernistic to the core, yet with that “conservative” veneer that keeps many trapped inside the Conciliar Church.

On May 31, 2013, their Catholic Answers Live radio show featured a program entitled “Radical Traditionalism”, which was dedicated to refuting the errors of the Society of St.… READ MORE
