The Vatican has made the text of Desiderio Desideravi available in several languages:

“Pilgrims of Hope”, you see…

Moving Forward:
Vatican releases Logo for Jubilee Year 2025

[UPDATED 29-JUN-22: Additional video added]

Some time ago the Vatican announced that 2025 would be a jubilee year, which ordinarily takes place every 25 years.

Today the headquarters of the Novus Ordo Church released the logo to go with it. It is displayed above. The theme is “pilgrims of hope”, a motto that basically screams Vatican II.

The Vatican’s Dicastery for Evangelization is responsible for selecting this logo, which was submitted as part of a competition. “A total of 294 entries were received from 213 cities and 48 different countries…,” and this one made the cut, according to a report by Vatican News.… READ MORE

Today the Supreme Court of the United States issued its definitive ruling in the Dobbs v. Jackson case in favor of Dobbs. It explicitly overturns the Roe v. Wade decision of 1973 and the Planned Parenthood v. Casey decision of 1992:

Official Logo for Francis’ Trip to Canada released

Today the Vatican officially confirmed that Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) will go on another blather tour “Apostolic Journey” to Canada from July 24-30, 2022. There he will visit Edmonton, Maskwacis, Lac Ste. Anne, Québec, and Iqaluit. The full program has been published here.

Chief purpose of the trip is to offer some more apologies to natives, who had visited the false pope in the Vatican earlier this year, after having discovered alleged mass graves near Catholic educational institutions, which the indigenous assume are testimony to ghastly deeds committed by Catholics against their prior generations many decades ago.… READ MORE

Francis receives notorious New Age Apostate
‘Fr.’ Richard Rohr in Private Audience

On June 20, 2022, the Vatican’s daily press bulletin stated that Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) had received in private audience the Rev. Richard Rohr, OFM (b. 1943), founder of the neo-pagan Center for Action and Contemplation in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Rohr, an American, has long been a big name in the United States, but not in a good way. One might say that he is a New Age version of hellboy James Martin, S.J., another scandalous man Francis approves of and has granted an audience to.… READ MORE

Mother Earth in Church:
‘Gaia’ Exhibition defiles Catholic Cathedral in Ireland


A gigantic spinning globe hangs from the ceiling of St. Colman’s Cathedral in Cobh, June 15-26, 2022

How much the world has invaded the church since the 1960s is currently on striking display at St. Colman’s Cathedral in Cobh, County Cork, Ireland.

A spinning giant replica of planet earth presently hangs from the ceiling of the magnificent Catholic cathedral that was constructed between 1868 and 1919. Called “Gaia”, after a pagan earth deity, this installation was created by artist Luke Jerram and is part of the Cork Midsummer Festival (June 15-26, 2022).… READ MORE

Powerful refutation of semi-trad star apologist

No Jekyll-and-Hyde Magisterium: Against the Theological Sophistry of Peter Kwasniewski

On May 26, 2022, One Peter Five published another article by Dr. Peter Kwasniewski, the retired philosophy professor who is currently “rethinking the Papacy” in an effort to fit the square peg of Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) into the round hole of the Petrine primacy:

The article’s chief contention is that the nature and role of the Church’s magisterium, specifically that of the Pope, has been unduly exaggerated by some to the detriment of Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition.… READ MORE

Francis: Today’s Problem is the Non-Acceptance of Vatican II


Post-conciliar “renewal” in one person: Jorge Bergoglio on Oct. 4, 2013, in Assisi, Italy

Founded in 1850 under Pope Pius IX, the Italian Jesuit periodical La Civiltà Cattolica was once the pride and glory of the Roman Pontiff. After the apostate Second Vatican Council (1962-65), it quickly degenerated into the Modernist rag it is today. Its current editor is the Rev. Antonio Spadaro, S.J.

Today La Civiltà Cattolica published an English translation of the question-and-answer session the Jesuit pseudo-pope Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) had had with ten editors of various European Jesuit journals in the Vatican on May 19, 2022:

In this post we will touch on some of the “highlights” found in Francis’ words.… READ MORE

No False Unity: Cardinal Stritch’s Rebuff of the Ecumenical Movement

His Eminence Cardinal Samuel Alphonsus Stritch (1887-1958) was the Archbishop of Chicago, Illinois, from 1940 until 1958.

In 1910 he was ordained a priest in Rome at the young age of 22 after Pope St. Pius X had granted him a special dispensation. Pope Benedict XV appointed him bishop of Toledo, Ohio, and named him a Domestic Prelate of His Holiness in 1921. Bp. Stritch became Archbishop of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, in 1930, and was appointed Archbishop of Chicago nine years later. Pope Pius XII elevated him to the status of cardinal in 1946.… READ MORE

“Rethinking” the Papacy?
A New Narrative for the Semi-Trads

One gets the feeling that the recognize-and-resist traditionalists over at One Peter Five cannot contain their enthusiasm. They have latched onto a novel concept they think can vindicate their traditionalism vis-à-vis “Pope” Francis and yet also preserve them from the oh-so detested Sedevacantism. They are now openly floating the idea of rethinking the Papacy.

Just the other day One Peter Five issued a call for article submissions. As in, “This is the position we’re going to be taking, and now we need people to provide the argumentation to back it up.”… READ MORE

Ecumenism instead of Catholicism:
Francis misleads Eastern Orthodox Monks


Always has his mouth open, especially when he has nothing to say: Jorge Bergoglio aka “Pope” Francis

On June 3, 2022, the Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) received into his presence a delegation of young priests and monks who are members of the Eastern Orthodox religion. His address for the occasion was relatively brief, but long enough to fill it with the usual ecumenical blather about the common “journey” towards that “unity” that comes only from the “Spirit”.

In this post we will briefly examine Bergoglio’s insufferable twaddle.… READ MORE

Critical review of “The Catholic Response to Corrupt Cardinals”

Not Just Wicked Shepherds but a Heretical Church:
A Sedevacantist Reply to Joshua Charles

On May 31, 2022, an article appeared on One Peter Five entitled “The Catholic Response to Corrupt Cardinals”. Its author is Joshua Charles, who, according to his biographical note, is a convert from Protestantism.

Given that it is published on a web site that is well-known for its firm adherence to and promotion of the recognize-and-resist position — Eric Sammons, Kennedy Hall, and Peter Kwasniewski are contributing editors at One Peter Five, and T. S.… READ MORE

A “Miracle of Sharing, Not Multiplying”:
Francis on Christ’s Feeding of the Five Thousand

Yesterday, on May 30, 2022, the world’s most talkative Jesuit, “Pope” Francis, gave an address to participants in the General Chapters of the Poor Servants of Divine Providence, gathered at the Vatican.

The man more properly known as Jorge Bergoglio did not fail to include some fancy Novus Ordo terminology in his speech. For example, he spoke of the “prophecy of communion”, “creative fidelity”, a “culture of providence”, “sterile nostalgia”, and the “dream of God”. Mention was also made of the “paternal and maternal face of God”.… READ MORE

Stephen Heiner interviews Mario Derksen…

Novus Ordo Watch – the Inside Story:
An Interview on True Restoration

On Mar. 4, 2022, Stephen Heiner of True Restoration sat down with yours truly (Mario Derksen) for an interesting in-depth conversation centering on the personal story behind Novus Ordo Watch.

Established in the fall of 2002, Novus Ordo Watch did not begin as a sedevacantist web site but as one subscribing to the more mainstream traditionalist “recognize-and-resist” position. It took about a year before the switch to Sedevacantism was made, a position held and defended here ever since.

Every convert since the 1960s has his own story of how he came to find pre-Vatican II Roman Catholicism, that is, the authentic Catholicism everyone identified as such before the Second Vatican Council (1962-65). … READ MORE

The 102nd edition of the notorious German Katholikentag (“Catholic Congress”) is currently underway in the city of Stuttgart. The official web site has a section for English speakers here.

The Katholikentag (pronounced cut-oh-LEAK-un-tuhg) has genuinely Catholic origins in the 1800s, but since at least 1968 it has been an insufferable sewer of anti-Catholic ideas and rebellion against God’s order. At this point it is an utter cesspool of Modernism, Indifferentism, feminism, Marxism, environmentalism, sexual immorality, and liturgical chaos — to be outdone only by its Lutheran counterpart.… READ MORE
