“No Rupture with the Past” Update:

John Courtney Murray’s Condemned Error became Doctrine at Vatican II

Not that more proof was needed, but it doesn’t hurt: Here is yet another admission by a modernist piece of literature that the doctrine on religious liberty proclaimed by the bogus “Second Vatican Council” in 1964 is in contradiction to the prior Catholic teaching on the confessional state. The snippet above is taken from p. 333 of the book The Diocesan Seminary in the United States: A History from the 1780s to the Present by Joseph M. White (Notre Dame, IN: University of Notre Dame Press, 1989).

Previously-Unreleased Vatican II Document Leaked:

Nostra Aetate Part 2:
Declaration on the Relation of the Novus Ordo Church to Satan

Mr. Hugh Moore, Executive Director of the St. Laphadis Foundation in Chicago announced today at a press conference the discovery of a previously unreleased version of Nostra Aetate, the Vatican II document on inter-faith relations. The document outlines efforts by the council to reach some level of ecumenical understanding with the Church of Satan. In Germany, an ecumenical Cardinal who prefered to go unnamed gave ghostly praise to the new document, calling it “a breakthrough in the Catholic Church’s journey toward fully reconciling herself with the many gifts that those who reject Christ bring to our cultural heritage.”

Put on Your Surprise Face…

Italian Freemasonry Officially Supports “Pope” Bergoglio

Tradition In Action has the following story:

If you forgot to put on your surprise face, now is the time.

Reality Check:

The Catholic Church most firmly condemns Freemasonry and all its abominable sects; the Masons themselves have announced their wicked conspiracy against the Church:

  • Pope Leo XII, Apostolic Constitution Quo Graviora (1826)
  • “We wish it to be your rule first of all to tear away the mask from Freemasonry, and to let it be seen as it really is; and by sermons and pastoral letters to instruct the people as to the artifices used by societies of this kind in seducing men and enticing them into their ranks, and as to the depravity of their opinions and the wickedness of their acts.

The Scandal of Ecumenism

Muslim Convert Baptized by Ratzinger Quits Novus Ordo Church over Modernism

It was bound to happen before long: A prominent convert from Islam who was once baptized by “Pope” Benedict XVI in St. Peter’s Basilica and received into what he thought was the Catholic Church, has now abandoned the Novus Ordo Sect and embraced some kind of generic Protestantism. Magdi Cristiano Allam could no longer take the Vatican II nonsense about Islam as worshipping the true God and being a religion of peace, and the Modernists’ failure to seek the conversion of Muslims:

Anyone in the Vatican II Sect who takes his faith seriously and believes it to be the Roman Catholic Faith, soon finds out that he’s “more Catholic than the Pope” — and that’s because the “Pope” isn’t a Catholic at all.

The Golden Calf of Vatican II

“Pope” Francis Meets with Religious Leaders, Affirms Commitment to Vatican II’s Ecumenism, Interreligious Dialogue

As one of his first acts as “Pope”, Francis naturally met with representatives of other religions. Zenit has provided a news report on the matter:

Some highlights from the report, with commentary:

  • “Pope Francis, who was seated on an armchair rather than the throne that is customarily used in the Clementine Hall, thanked Bartholomew I, referring to him as ‘my brother Andrew’, a reference to the fact that the patriarchs of Constantinople are considered the successors of the Apostle Andrew, the brother of Simon Peter.”

Slam Dunk against Vatican II…

First-Ever Complete English Translation on the Internet

Letter from the Holy Office under Pope Pius IX condemning Ecumenism and affirming True Christian Unity

“Ad Quosdam Puseistas Anglicos”
“To Certain Puseyite Anglicans”

November 8, 1865

The binding force of this instruction from the Holy Office, eminently relevant in our difficult times, was reaffirmed by the same Holy Office in 1919, under Pope Benedict XV, and in 1927, under Pope Pius XI.

Highlights:

  • “take care lest, while seeking unity, you turn yourselves aside from the way”
  • “sorry that you happened to think those Christian groups that boast of having the inheritance of the priesthood and the catholic name belong to the true Church of Jesus Christ, even though they are divided and separated from Peter”
  • “what sane person will persuade himself that error can underlie the Church’s public and solemn magisterium”
  • “no one is in the Catholic Church who does not cling to that Rock, on which the foundation of Catholic unity has been set”
  • “all groups entirely separated from external and visible communion with and obedience to the Roman Pontiff cannot be the Church of Christ, nor in any way whatsoever can they belong to the Church of Christ”

Refinishing the Great Facade:

The Vatican, the SSPX, and the “Restoration of Tradition”

“Thus saith the Lord: Stand ye on the ways, and see and ask for the old paths which is the good way, and walk ye in it: and you shall find refreshment for your souls. And they said: we will not walk.” ―Jeremias 6:16

“No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or he will hold to the one, and despise the other.” ―Our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ (Luke 16:13)

“But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach a gospel to you besides that which we have preached to you, let him be anathema.”

SEDE VACANTE 1958 – 2008

Reflections on a 50-Year Vacancy of the Apostolic See

Fifty years ago, around 3:50 am local time on October 9, 1958, His Holiness Pope Pius XII drew his last breath in Rome. At that time, most Catholics surely viewed this as simply an ordinary death of yet another Pope, and though lamentable, a new Pope would surely follow soon, and all would be well.

The last 50 years have proven beyond the shadow of a doubt that such was not the case. At first, everything seemed to go the usual way. The deceased Pope received a solemn funeral, and a conclave to elect his successor was scheduled for October 25.
