Explosive New Book: In the Closet of the Vatican to be released on First Day of Abuse Summit

The year 2018 was a tough one for Club Francis, but it may have only been a warm-up compared to what might be coming down the pike this year.

The French sociologist, journalist, and author Frederic Martel is about to release an explosive book that is poised to rock the Vatican much more than “Abp.” Carlo Vigano’s letters last year ever did. The work is entitled In the Closet of the Vatican: Power, Homosexuality, Hypocrisy and is scheduled to be published on Feb.

Francis opts for Old Testament Blessing at New Year’s Angelus

At the end of the Angelus prayer on Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2019, the “Holy Father” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) decided to nix the usual Catholic blessing invoking the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost, and replaced it with a blessing from the Old Testament found in Numbers 6:22-26:

And the Lord spoke to Moses, saying: Say to Aaron and his sons: Thus shall you bless the children of Israel, and you shall say to them: The Lord bless thee, and keep thee. The Lord shew his face to thee, and have mercy on thee.

Sixty years without a Pope — how could this happen?

Like Sheep without a Shepherd:
60 Years of Sede Vacante

During last year’s Fatima Conference sponsored by the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen (CMRI) in Spokane, Washington, Mr. Mario Derksen, pictured below, delivered a lecture on the subject of 60 years of sede vacante since the death of Pope Pius XII on October 9, 1958. We are happy to be able to share the 42-minute audio recording and also a written transcript in this post.

Looking at the extreme devastation of the Catholic landscape that has been wrought in the past 60 years, Mr.

Improvement from last year, but…

Made of Sand: Vatican’s New Nativity Scene Unveiled

Photo credit: Marina Testino

You may recall that last year the Vatican’s Christmas nativity scene was basically a harrowing homo-erotic horror show. Compared to that, virtually anything is an improvement.

This year, the powers that be in the Modernist Unholy See are presenting a nativity scene made entirely of sand, sculpted by the professional team of Rich Varano, right in St. Peter’s Square. The unveiling and inauguration took place today, and Vatican News has released a video of the entire ceremony:

In case you don’t care to watch the entire 75-minute video, Rome Reports has summarized the event in a brief clip:

The core of this year’s nativity scene, pictured at the top of this post, is odd.

Enough with all the globe-trotting…

Francis cracks down on “Bp.” Athanasius Schneider, orders him to reduce his traveling abroad

[UPDATE 08-NOV-2018 01:17 UTC: The German paper Die Tagespost reports that “Bp.” Schneider says the Vatican has merely asked him to ensure that his travels outside his diocese do not exceed the 30 days’ limit legislated in canon law. He has not been censured or forbidden from traveling. UPDATE 16:52 UTC: Schneider speaks to Life Site to explain the situation.]

We all know that “Pope” Francis is a big friend of migration, but even he has his limits when it comes to tolerating persistent moving about.

Vatican Synod proposes “Certification Systems” for Web Sites to counter “Fake News”

You have to admit: The Modernists in Vatican City have a sense of humor. The final document of their oh-so-important “Youth Synod”, which has happily been released only in Italian so far, includes the following paragraph (translation by Rorate Caeli):

146. The Synod hopes that in the Church appropriate official bodies for digital culture and evangelization are established at appropriate levels, which, with the indispensable contribution of young people, promote ecclesial action and reflection in this environment. Among their functions, in addition to promoting the exchange and dissemination of good practices at a personal and community level, and to develop adequate tools for digital education and evangelization, could also a [sic] manage certification systems of Catholic sites, to counter the spread of fake news regarding the Church, and looking for ways to persuade public authorities to promote increasingly stringent policies and tools for the protection of minors on the web.

Jesuit “Chapel of Encounter” wins Design Award

No, what you see above is not the new meditation room at the United Nations headquarters in New York City, nor a part of the set of the old Star Trek television series. And it has nothing to do with the massage therapy center that just opened down the street. Can’t you tell?! This is nothing less than the brand new “Chapel of Encounter” that now graces the Jesuit “Spirituality Center” (retreat house) in Salamanca, Spain.

As announced on the Spanish Jesuit information site infosj.es, the design of this “chapel” won the Religious Art and Architecture Design Award of the interreligious Faith & Form association for best religious space of 2018.

An Occult Portrait of “Saint” Paul VI

In case you’re wondering what this bizarre picture might be, we can help: What looks like an exploding alien head at the bottom is supposed to be none other than “Pope” Paul VI (r. 1963-78), the latest bogus saint the Novus Ordo Sect has produced.

The title of the work is Papacy. It was completed in 1971 and presented to His Unholiness at the Vatican the following year. Upon seeing it, the false pope reportedly said that the painting was “a mirror of the situation in the Church today” (source), a comment that is understood by most as a lament, but considering that that “situation” was of his own making, he was perhaps boasting.

Montini now a “saint” in the Vatican II Church…

A Tribute to “Saint” Paul VI

It has finally happened: The apostate Vatican II Sect has officially declared yet another one of its false popes to be a “saint of the Catholic Church.” This time, it was Bp. Giovanni Battista Montini, “Pope” Paul VI (1897-1978). He was “canonized” in St. Peter’s Square today, Oct. 14, together with six others, including the social activist “Abp.” Óscar Arnulfo Romero y Galdamez (1917-1980) of San Salvador, El Salvador.

The following two videos show, first, a brief summary of today’s event in the Vatican and then the full canonization ceremony presided over by “Pope” Francis:

The formula which Francis used to “canonize” Montini and the others is the following (in Latin):

For the honour of the Blessed Trinity, the exaltation of the Catholic faith and the increase of the Christian life, by the authority of our Lord Jesus Christ, and of the Holy Apostles Peter and Paul, and our own, after due deliberation and frequent prayer for divine assistance, and having sought the counsel of many of our brother Bishops, we declare and define Blessed Paul VI, Oscar Arnulfo Romero Galdámez, Francis Spinelli, Vincent Romano, Mary Catherine Kasper, Nazaria Ignacia of Saint Teresa of Jesus March Mesa and Nunzio Sulprizio to be Saints and we enroll them among the Saints, decreeing that they are to be venerated as such by the whole Church.

Vatican issues lackluster Statement on McCarrick Investigation

If this is Francis’ great response to the Vigano accusations, it cannot be taken seriously: The Vatican has just released a Bollettino with information about the former “Cardinal” Theodore McCarrick, credibly accused of sexual abuse. Here is the full text:

After the publication of the accusations regarding the conduct of Archbishop Theodore Edgar McCarrick, the Holy Father Pope Francis, aware of and concerned by the confusion that these accusations are causing in the conscience of the faithful, has established that the following be communicated:

In September 2017, the Archdiocese of New York notified the Holy See that a man had accused former Cardinal McCarrick of having abused him in the 1970s.

The Youth Synod 2018 Begins


Ready to toast some marshmallows?

The long wait is finally over: After three painful years without knowing what the god of surprises might want to reveal to Club Francis next, the latest and greatest Ordinary General Assembly of the Synod of Bishops is back in session! In a last-minute showdown, the online petition circulated by The Remnant to stop the synod could not prevent the Vatican assembly from proceeding as scheduled.

On the morning of Oct. 3, 2018, Antipope Francis kicked off what is more commonly known as the “Youth Synod”, since the official theme of the three-week gathering of Modernist pseudo-bishops is “young people, the faith, and vocational discernment”.
