Paul VI in 1976: Vatican II is Binding, New Mass is Obligatory and Replaces the Old

If you’ve been researching Catholic Traditionalism for a while, chances are you’ve come across the argument made by recognize-and-resist apologists that “Pope” Paul VI (1963-78) himself confirmed that his Second Vatican Council (1962-65) was neither infallible nor binding.

The line of argumentation given in Taylor Marshall’s 2019 book Infiltration is characteristic of this approach:

Pope Paul VI promulgated Dignitatis humanae on 7 December 1965, and the next day he closed the Second Vatican Council and stated: “The magisterium of the Church did not wish to pronounce itself under the form of extraordinary dogmatic pronouncements” [footnote: Pope Paul VI, Discourse closing Vatican II, 7 December 1965].

Venerable Brothers,

Since the day on which, now more than three years ago, by the fixing of the number of Cardinal Electors, we filled the gaps created in your Sacred College, this latter has suffered the sad loss of our Brethren whom we all remember with affectionate sorrow, and on the other hand, some of its members have reached the established age at which they can no longer take part in the election of the Roman Pontiff.… READ MORE

Candid comments on the council…

“Cardinal” Avery Dulles in 1976: Vatican II reversed the Prior Magisterium, showed Value of Dissent

Not that any more confirmation was needed, but it doesn’t hurt: Yes, Vatican II represents a genuine departure from the Roman Catholic magisterium.

Back in 1976, the Jesuit Fr. Avery Dulles (1918-2008) candidly acknowledged that the Second Vatican Council (1962-65) had contradicted and reversed the prior Catholic magisterium on sundry significant points of doctrine and discipline. This admission is noteworthy because most “orthodox” defenders of the council claim that a “correct interpretation” will show the continuity with prior teaching and debunk the allegations of rupture.… READ MORE

Paul VI in 1970 calls Vatican II “Authoritative Compendium of Doctrine”

At a time when the recognize-and-resist traditionlists are running their engines at full throttle, now mainly due to the drama over “Pope” Francis’ Latin Mass suppressant Traditionis Custodes, it is important once again to draw attention to the fact that the popular resistance narratives these people have been spinning for decades simply do not jibe with reality.

Whether it be the myth that no Pope could ever abolish St.… READ MORE

The Traditional Mask is Off:

Commentary on Francis’ Move against the Latin Mass
(PODCAST)

July 16, 2021 has been a very eventful day, and at its conclusion we present to you this podcast, almost half an hour in length, analysing and evaluating Francis’ controversial motu proprio Traditionis Custodes as well as its accompanying explanatory letter. We also provide some important initial commentary on this historic development, putting it in context for all who are trying to understand what in the world has happened to the Roman Catholic Church:

Our initial post announcing the suppression of the 1962 Missal by Francis can be found here:

There will be much more to come on this topic as additional developments arise and more and more people weigh in on the future of the Traditional Latin Mass in the Vatican II Church.… READ MORE

Rev. Michael DeSaye of Trenton, NJ

Novus Ordo Priest becomes Sedevacantist, Diocese Excommunicates

On June 2, 2018, Rev. Michael G. DeSaye was ordained a Catholic priest.

At least that is what he thought at the time.

Less than three years after what he has since come to understand was an invalid ordination ceremony, presided over by a Modernist layman rather than a Roman Catholic bishop, “Father” DeSaye asked his local ordinary, “Bishop” David M. O’Connell, to accept his resignation from the diocese of Trenton, New Jersey. The request was granted.

On May 10 of this year, “Bp.” O’Connell released the following extremely diplomatic announcement:

Before John XXIII “opened the windows”…

Before Vatican II:
What Catholic Nuns used to be like

Not everything was perfect in the Catholic Church before the Second Vatican Council (1962-65), but by and large things were in proper order and the Church was flourishing.

One of the most visible ways one can demonstrate the utter devastation caused by the aggiornamento (“updating”) of Vatican II, is by comparing Catholic nuns before and after the “Great Renewal”.

We recently stumbled upon the following 2-minute clip in which a Welsh Carmelite novice is interviewed by a TV reporter. (A novice is a nun who has not yet taken vows but is preparing to.)… READ MORE

Catholicism vs. the Novus Ordo religion

In a Nutshell:
The Roman Catholic Church vs. the Vatican II Church

It just doesn’t fit: the Vatican II religion isn’t Catholicism

This past Sunday was Low Sunday, on which Holy Mother Church in the Roman rite reads the Gospel of the doubting St. Thomas, to whom our Blessed Lord replied: “Because thou hast seen me, Thomas, thou hast believed: blessed are they that have not seen, and have believed” (Jn 20:29).

Fr. Nicolás Despósito of the sedevacantist Most Holy Trinity Seminary used the occasion to give an eloquent and highly informative sermon explaining what “I believe in the Holy Catholic Church” actually means.… READ MORE

“For Fear of the Jews”: How the Novus Ordo Good Friday Prayer betrays the Crucified Christ

The Roman Catholic Church, in her loving kindness and care, having been entrusted by the Son of God with the mission to preach the Gospel and convert all men to the true Faith (see Mk 16:15-16), greatly desires the salvation of all people. Knowing that man was not made for this world, but for eternal beatitude in Heaven, she lovingly seeks to detach him from the state of sin he finds himself in and lift him up to the life of Faith and virtue through the grace merited by our Lord Jesus Christ, who declared: “I am the way, and the truth, and the life.… READ MORE

Logical consequence of Abu Dhabi heresy…

Francis expands the “People of God”:
Now it includes All Religions!

The heresy superspreader Jorge Bergoglio — a.k.a. “Pope Francis” — held another general audience today. The topic this time was the Easter Triduum, that is, the three days leading up to Easter: Holy Thursday, Good Friday, Holy Saturday.

Not surprisingly, the Argentinian pseudo-pope was busy shifting the focus from Christ’s Passion and Death onto “the sufferings of the sick, the poor, the rejected of this world; …the ‘sacrificed lambs’, the innocent victims of wars, dictatorships, everyday violence, abortions… the too many who are crucified in our time … who are the image of Jesus Crucified….”… READ MORE

The New Springtime of Vatican II in one Building:
St. Peter’s Seminary in Cardross, Scotland

If there is one building complex in the entire world that is emblematic of the state of the Vatican II Church, it is probably that of St. Peter’s Seminary near Cardross, Scotland.

Conceptualized in the 1950s, construction began in 1961 and concluded in 1966. The Catholic Church left behind by Pope Pius XII (d. 1958) was robust and thriving, and so the seminary was constructed to house as many as 100 young men studying for the Catholic priesthood.… READ MORE

“Christian Saints of all Confessions”:
Francis again pushes Ecumenical Martyrdom Heresy

In February of 2015, terrorists of the Islamic State (ISIS) revealed that they had beheaded 21 men belonging to the Coptic Orthodox religion. Twenty of them were Egyptian, one was from Ghana. The case received a lot of media attention, and on Feb. 21, 2015, the head of the Coptic Orthodox Church of Alexandria, Tawadros II, in a special ceremony declared the men to be saints and martyrs.

Over at the Vatican, the false pope Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) seized the opportunity to preach what he called an “ecumenism of blood”, a kind of “ecumenical martyrdom”.… READ MORE

Francis to Catechists: Vatican II is the Magisterium of the Church and non-negotiable

The traditionalist wing of the Vatican II Church is concerned. On Saturday, Jan. 30, 2021, their extremely valid “Pope” opened his mouth about the Second Vatican Council (1962-65) and a Catholic’s supposed obligation to adhere to it.

In a flowery discourse to Italian catechists filled with blather about kerygma, encounter, journey, listening, the “dialect of closeness” and what not, the Argentinian apostate playing Pope said:

This is magisterium: the Council is the magisterium of the Church. Either you are with the Church and therefore you follow the Council, and if you do not follow the Council or you interpret it in your own way, as you wish, you are not with the Church.
