Historical Tidbit: ‘Pope’ Paul VI permitted active Catholic Participation in Eastern Orthodox Masses
About a month ago, we published an article demonstrating that the Catholic Church teaches that she is infallible not only in her dogmas but also in her universal laws and sacramental rites — not in the sense that these could never be changed, but rather, that they could never be in themselves impious, heretical, sacrilegious, or otherwise harmful.
In his magnificent encyclical letter on the Mystical Body of Christ, Pope Pius XII taught this explicitly:
Certainly the loving Mother [the Church] is spotless in the Sacraments, by which she gives birth to and nourishes her children; in the faith which she has always preserved inviolate; in her sacred laws imposed on all; in the evangelical counsels which she recommends; in those heavenly gifts and extraordinary graces through which, with inexhaustible fecundity she generates hosts of martyrs, virgins and confessors.

‘Pope’ Francis shows up as Studio Guest on Italian Television Show
For the first time ever, a ‘Pope’ has taken part in a television show as an in-studio guest. Hooray.
Mr. Jorge Bergoglio — the talkative Argentinian Modernist who has been falsely presenting himself as the Pope of the Catholic Church since 2013 — participated as one of several guests in the televised religion-themed show A Sua Immagine (“In His Image”) for the Italian public TV channel RAI. The show had been recorded on May 27 and was aired on June 4.
Vatican News reports:
Pope Francis became the guest star of Italy’s television programme on faith and religion called “A Sua immagine” (‘In His image’), a weekly broadcast by RAI, the nation’s public broadcaster.
The month of June 2023 began with a horrific profanation of what is probably the holiest place in all of Vatican City.
On June 1, 2023, a man climbed onto the high altar of St. Peter’s Basilica and undressed himself completely, apparently in protest over the Russia-Ukraine war. The man had letters written on his back, saying: “Save Children in Ukraine”.… READ MORE
Francis makes it clear: By Proselytism he means CONVERTING people and that’s wrong!
For the last 10 years or so, Novus Ordo apologists have been bending over backwards trying to defend Jorge Bergoglio’s constant condemnation of “proselytism”. He doesn’t mean convincing people of the true Faith, much less converting them, we were told. Rather, he means pressuring people to convert, using deceptive means to convert them, bullying them into conversion, threatening them with damnation if they don’t convert.
We told you from the very beginning that that is definitely not what Francis means, and this is evident from the context in which he speaks, from the other things he has said, from his general refusal to seek the conversion of anyone, from his lowest common denominator ecumenism, and from the fact that virtually no one in the Novus Ordo Church pressures or bullies anyone into conversion anyway, so where is the need for these relentless tirades against a phantom problem?… READ MORE

Francis to Hungarian Jesuits: Wanting to go back to pre-Vatican II days is ‘Nostalgic Disease’
‘Pope’ Francis likes nothing better than to share with the world his infinite wisdom on just about anything, especially when it comes to replacing Roman Catholicism with the latest novelties of the “god of surprises”.
Thus, when the Argentinian pseudo-pope embarked on his umpteenth ‘Apostolic Journey’ this past April 28, this time to Hungary, it was clear he would meet with his Jesuit confreres there for a little question-and-answer session, because that has become the custom on his trips. The scheduled get-together took place on Saturday, Apr.… READ MORE

The Infallibility of the Catholic Church in her Universal Laws and Sacramental Rites
In his 1943 encyclical letter on the Mystical Body of Christ, Pope Pius XII (r. 1939-1958) clarified that the Roman Catholic Church, although made up of human beings who are sinners, is nevertheless perfectly holy in those things that pertain to her divine constitution and the fulfillment of her mission — that of teaching, governing, and sanctifying souls so that they may attain the Beatific Vision. As “the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth” (1 Tim 3:15), our Lord’s is thus “a glorious church, not having spot or wrinkle, or any such thing; but … holy, and without blemish” (Eph 5:27).… READ MORE
