Francis rumored to be preparing new Decree against Traditional Latin Mass
It behooves bloggers to be careful with rumors. It is too easy for a story to make the rounds that ends up being false — “fake news”, as it is called in our day.
At the same time, not all rumors are equal. Some are more credible than others, and in the case of the one before us right now, we think it worth reporting on, considering the source: the German ‘indult’ blog Motu-proprio: Summorum-Pontificum, which is run by Michael Charlier. It is a kind of German equivalent to the English-speaking Rorate Caeli blog, although the two are not connected.… READ MORE

On June 29, 2022, the Jesuit apostate Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) issued a so-called Apostolic Letter, entitled Desiderio Desideravi. The title is taken from the holy Words of our Lord Jesus Christ at the beginning of the Last Supper: “With desire I have desired to eat this pasch with you, before I suffer” (Lk 22:15).
The subject matter with which this letter concerns itself is that of the Sacred Liturgy, or, in Vatican II speak: “on the liturgical formation of the People of God”.… READ MORE

June 29, 2022

“Pope” Francis has released a follow-up “Apostolic Letter” to his 2021 motu proprio Traditionis Custodes severely limiting the use of the 1962 Roman Missal (“Traditional Latin Mass”). This new document is called Desiderio Desideravi and was published without prior announcement on June 29, 2022, the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul.
The Vatican has made the text of Desiderio Desideravi available in several languages:
Vatican News has published the following reports and commentary:

What Game is Francis playing with the Fraternity of Saint Peter?
He knows how to move pieces: The Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio, S.J.
Predicting what Jorge Bergoglio will do is a dangerous and forlorn task. The man otherwise known as “Pope Francis” is a master manipulator, a cunning schemer, and a malicious deceiver. To “expect the unexpected” is probably the best advice one can give when it comes to the apostate Jesuit from Buenos Aires.
Francis reassures FSSP

Report: Vatican preparing Decree on Ecclesia Dei Institutes to be released in March
The French newspaper La Croix has released a report with more information about the future of the Traditional Latin Mass in the Vatican II Church.
Entitled “How Pope Francis sees Church Traditionalists”, it was written by their Vatican-based correspondent Loup Besmond de Senneville and was published in French yesterday, Jan. 17, 2022. An English translation was released today for the international edition:
Although not an “official” Novus Ordo newspaper, La Croix is very much affiliated with the Vatican II Church and is owned by Bayard Presse, which in turn is owned by the Augustinians of the Assumption.… READ MORE

On Epiphany, Bergoglio hijacks Three Magi to slam Traditional Mass, push Surprise Theology
Today the Catholic Church celebrates the Feast of the Epiphany (Theophany), which commemorates the manifestation of Jesus Christ to the Gentiles with the arrival of the Three Kings (Magi) at the crib of the Infant Savior.
For Jorge Bergoglio, S.J., (“Pope Francis”) this was another opportunity to inculcate his ideological talking points into unsuspecting souls, and that is exactly what we saw in the sermon he gave today during the Novus Ordo worship service at St. Peter’s Basilica:

Dreary Christmas: Semi-Trads excoriate Francis over new Latin Mass Restrictions
Move over, Grinch, Scrooge, and other sourpusses: No one wrecks Christmas like the Frankster!
This past Saturday, Dec. 18, His Phoniness “Pope” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) issued an utterly merciless decree against those in his Modernist church who attempt to practice traditional Catholicism while nevertheless recognizing him as Pope. As they are dependent on ready access to the Traditional Latin Mass “in full communion” with the Modernist hierarchy as the center of their sacramental lives, Francis knows exactly the spot at which to strike to ensure they will hurt the most.… READ MORE

Enough Already! Francis doubles down on Traditional Latin Mass Restrictions

It’s amazing how quickly the Modernists occupying the Vatican structures can respond to a set of dubia (questions asking for clarification) if they really want to.
Whereas “Cardinals” Walter Brandmüller and Raymond Burke are still waiting after over five years for answers to their dubia concerning Amoris Laetitia, the Vatican didn’t take long to provide clarification concerning Francis’ July 16, 2021 decree Traditionis Custodes, which severely curtails the right to use the Missal of 1962, commonly referred to as the Traditional Latin Mass.… READ MORE

Sedevacantist resources on ‘Traditionis Custodes’
Free Transcript: Bp. Donald Sanborn analyzes Traditionis Custodes – PLUS: More Resources
On July 24, 2021, the folks at True Restoration released a phenomenal podcast episode of their popular FRANCIS WATCH program. It was a special episode (no. 47) dedicated to the decree Traditionis Custodes the false pope had just released, in which he essentially phases out, however gradually, the use of the 1962 Roncalli Missal (the “Traditional Latin Mass”, for all intents and purposes) in the Vatican II Church.
In the podcast, host Matthew Gaskins interviews Bishop Donald Sanborn, rector of the sedevacantist Most Holy Trinity Seminary in Brooksville, Florida, regarding the historical and theological claims made in Traditionis Custodes.… READ MORE

In Q&A with Slovak Jesuits, Francis hits back at Critics
During his recent trip to Slovakia, the Argentinian aposte Jorge Bergoglio (aka “Pope Francis”) once again took time to meet with his fellow Jesuits, which usually means they get to ask him questions and he then responds with his incredibly profound wisdom.
This is something he’s been doing on pretty much all his trips outside of Italy, so it was expected. A full transcript of the question-and-answer session is always released a few weeks later by “Fr.” Antonio Spadaro, S.J., editor-in-chief of the Jesuit review La Civiltà Cattolica, which under Pope Pius IX started out as an eminently orthodox publication but has long since degenerated into an utter Modernist rag.… READ 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

Francis’ Double Standard: Traditional Latin Mass forbidden, but Anglican Service is fine
On July 16, 2021, “Pope” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) made it abundantly clear that he has no love for the traditional Roman rite of the Holy Catholic Mass, also called the Tridentine Mass, which was codified by Pope St. Pius V in the 16th century. It is, after all, the perfect worship directed to the Most Holy Trinity and the liturgical expression of the Roman Catholic Faith.
On the other hand, there is a liturgy dating back to the 16th century this fake pope does approve of: that of the heretico-schismatic “Church of England”, a human institution founded by King Henry VIII after Pope Clement VII, untainted by Amoris Laetitia or the “god of surprises”, refused to grant his request for a marriage annulment.… READ MORE
