The editors of Tradition in Action have published an in-depth look at the “Good Shepherd” cross Francis uses as his pectoral cross. It’s worth reading in full:

Above left, you see the pectoral cross of Card. Jorge Bergoglio when he was Archbishop of Buenos Aires; at right, his cross after he was elected Pope or Bishop of Rome, as he insists on being called. Several things are strange about these crosses that invite speculation…

Neither Vatican Nor Diocese Punish Pro-Homo Novus Ordo Priest who Paid for Abortions

The following shocking story comes from LifeSite:

BARCELONA, April 19, 2011 (LifeSiteNews.com) – A Catholic priest who financed the abortion of two young girls in his care will not be excommunicated nor otherwise punished, the Archdiocese of Barcelona declared yesterday on behalf of Cardinal Archbishop Lluís Martínez Sistach.

The archdiocese also claims that it has support for its decision from the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which it says ruled in favor of the priest in 2009.

And neither one of them is the Pope…

The “Pope Emeritus”, Benedict XVI, has returned from Castelgandolfo and is now back at the Vatican, where he will remain for the rest of his life:

.- Benedict XVI has returned to the Vatican after moving to the papal summer household outside of Rome to not interfere with the papal election.

“He is now pleased to return to the Vatican, where he intends to devote himself, as he announced on Feb. 11, to the service of the Church in prayer,” said a Vatican statement released on May 2.

Sedevacantist Pioneer Dies

Patrick Henry Omlor
June 13, 1931 – May 2, 2013
Requiescat In Pace

We are saddened to have to report the passing of Mr. Patrick Henry Omlor, one of the earliest pioneers of Traditional Catholicism in the 1960s. A Texan by birth, Mr. Omlor died peacefully at a hospital in Perth, Australia, on the feast of St. Athanasius, May 2, 2013. Like the great bishop, confessor, and doctor St. Athanasius, Mr. Omlor was not afraid to stand up for the True Faith in a time when the Novus Ordo Church began to eclipse the True Church with its modernistic teachings and false new sacramental rites.

Now they just need an actual priest to go with the actual confessionals…

Confessionals without Priests

The indult blog Rorate Caeli has posted an article that tells of a Novus Ordo parish that has experienced an increase in people going to confession after having installed traditional confessional boxes and abandoning the modernist “reconciliation room”. “Actual confessionals mean  more actual confessions,” titles Rorate Caeli. This is true, and by the same token, actual priests mean more actual absolutions. And there’s the problem: You can confess all you like, even in a traditional confessional box, but if the man on the other side isn’t a validly ordained priest, you’re not obtaining forgiveness of your sins (which was probably the point of you going to confession in the first place).

Bergoglio’s Kissy Fits…

Kiss, Kiss, Kiss:
The Kissing “Pope” Administers Novus Ordo Confirmations

This is nothing new for “His Holiness”, who did the same thing as “Archbishop” of Buenos Aires. In the true Roman Catholic rite of Confirmation, each confirmand, having just received the imposition of hands (which the Novus Ordo rite has eliminated) and the anointing, is slapped on the left cheek by the bishop as a sign that one is now a soldier of Christ and must be ready to accept any suffering for the Faith. The Novus Ordo religion, in its “updating” of the rite of Confirmation, has completely done away with the slap, not replacing it with anything.

Flashback 2009

“Archbishop” Robert Zollitsch:
‘Christ Did not Die to Atone for our Sins’

 

The apostasy of the New Church has taken on such drastic proportions that the head of the German Novus Ordo “Bishops” can deny the sin-atoning nature of Christ’s Sacrifice on Calvary in a TV interview – and nobody cares. The Redemption of Our Lord is denied — the very heart of the Gospel, for which countless martyrs died — and no one takes notice. This denial of one of the central dogmas of Catholicism by the modernist “Archbishop” Robert Zollitsch of Freiburg took place in a TV interview broadcast on Holy Saturday of 2009.

The Modernists’ last-ditch defense tactic refuted…

“Who are YOU to judge who is a Heretic?”

The following is an excerpt from the 1886 book Liberalism is a Sin by Fr. Felix Sarda y Salvany. It was endorsed and praised by the Vatican’s Sacred Congregation of the Index under Pope Leo XIII. The book exposes the ideas and tactics of the Modernists, called Liberals at the time, and we cannot recommend it highly enough. In fact, one may say that this book completely destroys many fundamental ideas of the bogus Second Vatican Council (1962-65) and the new religion it engendered (which we call the Novus Ordo Religion).

The old Modernist Strategy is still working…

“Pope” Francis:
“Not Possible to Find Jesus Outside the Church”

Oh boy, this one’s going to get the semi-traditionalists and pseudo-conservatives in the Novus Ordo jumping for joy. “The Pope said that Christ cannot be found outside the Catholic Church, oh my gosh! Look at how conseeeeervative he is! Our Pope is Caaatholic!”

Sure enough, Mr. (“Fr.”) John Zuhlsdorf picked up on this story right away, and no doubt we won’t have to wait long for Michael Voris to cover it in The Vortex (known for its extremely selective reporting) as well. [Update: Voris covered it in his May 6 Vortex here.]

The ‘Judas Cardinal’ is at it again…

“Cardinal” Timothy Dolan Awards
Catholic Medal to Pro-Abort Girl Scouts CEO

The Vatican II Church is simply beyond parody at this point. The stuff that takes place on a daily basis in the Novus Ordo religion masquerading as the Catholic Church, has reached proportions that cannot be described any other way than “beyond absurd”. In the latest scandal, the supposedly Roman Catholic “Archbishop” of New York, Mr. Timothy Dolan, has awarded the “St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Medal” to Anna Maria Chavez, who is the pro-abortion CEO of the Girl Scouts of the USA, an organization notorious for its moral corruption of girls.

The “Holy Father” Strikes Again

Francis Endorses Vatican II, Bashes Traditionalists

In the walls of the modernist Vatican, it’s business as usual. On April 16, 2013, after prostrating himself in adoration of the Golden Calf of the Second Vatican Council, blasphemously calling it the work of the Holy Ghost, His Phonyness “Pope” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) explained that there was no turning back of the clock and that those in his church who disagreed with Vatican II were “stubborn” and resisting the Holy Ghost:

The Italian word used by Francis was testardi, and while some have translated it as “stubborn”, others have rendered it as “hard-headed”.
