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.

Hell’s Vestibule:
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.

It’s basically a photograph…

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”.

Viganò Reloaded:
In new 4-Page Testimony, the “Great Accuser” Doubles Down

Just as we were preparing our post on the new bombshell report that some Vatican sources have confirmed the Vigano Testimony but with the added caveat that things are even worse than alleged, yet another major development broke in the case:

The former Vatican nuncio to the United States, “Abp.” Carlo Maria Viganò, has just released a new four-page letter in which he reasserts the truth of the accusations of his original Testimony, justifies his decision to go public, and responds to Francis’ attempts to ignore, dismiss, and defame him.

Report in theological journal…

Vatican Sources:
What Viganò says is True, except it’s Worse!

Mere days after the release of a bombshell report against “Pope” Francis by the prominent German leftist political magazine Der Spiegel, the Novus Ordo theological journal Herder Korrespondenz in its October 2018 issue is dropping another bomb into the battlefield of the sex abuse cover-up allegations against the papal pretender Jorge Bergoglio.

In an article entitled “Pontifical Secret”, author Benjamin Leven presents a well-written summary of what has transpired for Francis so far this year in terms of sexual abuse and cover-up allegations, beginning with his fateful trip to Chile in January.

Novus Ordo Cardinals slam Francis:
“Cold-Blooded, Cunning Machiavellian [who] Lies”, Heretic

With regard to accusations of sex abuse cover-up and stonewalling, the left-leaning mainstream press has mostly been treating “Pope” Francis with kid gloves. After all, no one has attacked Catholicism more openly and with more lasting effect than Jorge Bergoglio, and it would be a shame for the political left to have to attack one of their own and risk interrupting his work of destruction. But now it seems the honeymoon may finally be over.

The Sep. 22, 2018, edition of the German weekly Der Spiegel (“The Mirror”), pictured above, has an explosive cover story: “Thou shalt not lie: The Pope and the Catholic Church in their greatest crisis” are the words printed on the front page.

Benedict XVI: “With the Papa Emeritus I have tried to [be] completely clear that there is only one Pope”

Ever since Benedict XVI announced his resignation on Feb. 11, 2013, the Vatican has been a continually alternating hodgepodge of drama, comedy, freak show, circus, and haunted house of horrors. Not that the Vatican II Church wasn’t already clearly a blasphemous and heretical madhouse before then, but at least it had tried to give an appearance of honor, respectability, and order. At this point, it’s a laughing stock as “Pope” Francis has maneuvered himself into what can only be described as a lame-duck session of the rest of his “papacy”, where each day that passes may bring yet another scandal, confidentiality leak, or other embarrassing development.
