Ratzinger’s Roman Apostasy Symbolism

At a time when “Pope Emeritus” Benedict XVI is once again held in the highest esteem by countless people who are fed up with “Pope” Francis, a little reality check is in order lest we forget that few individuals are more personally responsible for the near-total collapse of Catholicism in our day than the former Joseph Ratzinger.

In 2006, a German publisher released a 48-page booklet entitled Ratzingers römische Apostasie-Symbolik, written by Dr. Wigand Siebel (1929-2014) and Dr. Carl Angermayr. In 2007, the work was translated into English as Ratzinger’s Roman Apostasy Symbolism, and it is this translation Novus Ordo Watch is now excited to make widely available in electronic format, entirely free of charge, with the permission of the translator.

Novus Ordo priest punished for “heresy and schism”…

Francis Critic “Fr.” Alessandro Minutella declared Excommunicated

The Archlayman of Palermo has announced that one of the Novus Ordo priests in his diocese, the 45-year-old “Fr.” Alessandro Minutella, has excommunicated himself for the crimes of heresy and schism. The statement put out by the Archdiocese of Palermo to that effect was quickly reported on Vatican News and in English reads as follows:

On November 13, 2018, Father Alessandro Maria Minutella was notified of the Decree of August 15, 2018 (Prot. No. 046/18) by which the Archbishop Corrado Lorefice DECLARES the excommunications latae sententiae, which the same priest has incurred for the crime of heresy and for the crime of schism, as required by canon law (cf.

Novus Ordo Altar in Italy features 120 Severed Heads

The Vatican II Church has done it again, this time in Italy. La Repubblica reports on a new Novus Ordo altar that is a real head-turner — pun intended. Not much comment is required. We’ll let the pictures speak for themselves:

This piece of macabre sacrilege was unveiled this past Sunday, Nov. 11, at the Basilica di Santa Maria Assunta in Gallarate near Milan. The La Repubblica report says that this travesty of an altar was designed by Claudio Parmiggiani and has generated heated controversy, with some Novus Ordos even calling it “satanic.”

The basilica’s “Monsignor” Ivano Valagussa has dismissed concerns over how people, especially children, will react to this offensive and disturbing “artwork”: “Art needs time and listening”, he assures the gullible.

Missing the Forest for the Trees:

The Remnant on Schism and Sedevacantism

The pseudo-traditionalist flagship publication The Remnant has once again graced the world with the full depth of its theological wisdom. This biweekly American newspaper promotes what is perhaps best called a “pop traditionalism”, a distortion of traditional Catholicism that emphasizes certain popular elements or emotionally satisfying aspects — such as the Latin Mass, traditional practices, and rejection of whacky Novus Ordo ideas — but without any commitment to (or even regard for) sound Catholic theology, knowledge of which would have to be acquired through laborious effort and might lead to undesirable consequences.

A New Book defending Baptism of Desire and Blood:

Contra Crawford: A Defense of Baptism of Desire & Periodic Continence

by Dylan Fellows and Christopher Conlon

The sedevacantist laymen Dylan Fellows and Christopher Conlon are the authors of a new book defending the Catholic position on baptism of desire and baptism of blood as capable of supplying the sanctifying grace of the sacrament of baptism. This Church doctrine has been denied by a number of confused souls both inside and outside of Sedevacantism, especially in the United States, in the last few decades.

The name that is commonly (although not quite correctly) given to this erroneous denial is “Feeneyism”, because the first major figure to hold that those who die with the baptism of desire or blood will nevertheless go to hell was the Jesuit Fr.

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.

Chaos Frank explains the Sixth Commandment

It is customary for the false popes of the Novus Ordo Sect to offer a catechism lesson during their weekly General Audience. This is the place where “St.” John Paul II, for example, made known his notorious sexology known as the “Theology of the Body” over a span of several years in the early 1980s. Naturally, Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) has retained this custom, as he loves nothing better than spewing his Modernist ideas in front of a large audience.

The series of catechetical instructions Francis is currently offering is on the Ten Commandments.

Francis as a Gargoyle:
Cologne Cathedral now features “Papal” Grotesque

Photo credit: Herbert Bucco

No, this is not fake news. This is not a Halloween joke. You couldn’t make it up if you got paid to: The Cathedral of St. Peter in Cologne, Germany, has added a new gargoyle to its facade, and it represents none other than the world’s chief apostate, Mr. Jorge Bergoglio, otherwise known by his stage name, “Pope Francis.”

Usually gargoyles are made in the form of notorious sinners, demons, or animals. A standard dictionary definition is: “a grotesquely carved figure of a human or animal”, and “a spout, terminating in a grotesque representation of a human or animal figure with open mouth, projecting from the gutter of a building for throwing rain water clear of a building” (source).

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.

Youngsters dance, “bishops” clap, “Pope” drones on about journeys, horizons, roots, and coherence

After 23 days of work, the youth synod concludes with a dance party, one that is graced with Francis’ presence.

As the world drowns in unbelief, blasphemy, impiety, confusion, and immorality, “Catholic” authorities are busy “keeping global warming below 1.5°C; shifting towards sustainable lifestyles; respecting the knowledge of indigenous communities; implementing a financial paradigm shift in line with global climate accords; transforming the energy sector by putting an end to the fossil fuel era and transitioning to renewable energy; and rethinking the agriculture sector to ensure it provides healthy and accessible food for everyone, with a special emphasis on promoting agroecology.”

by Francis del Sarto

On May 18, 2018, during his Rome Life Forum keynote address at the Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas (the Angelicum) in Rome, “Cardinal” Raymond Burke declared: “We cannot fail to observe that the situation which Pope Pius XI described in 1925 has only grown worse in our time, and attempts ever more to infiltrate the life of the Church herself and to corrupt the Bride of Christ by an apostasy from the Apostolic Faith” (see video recording, 12:51ff.

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.
