Francis & Fernandez respond to Dubia of ‘Cardinal’ Duka…
Vatican Doctrine Office explains Amoris Laetitia:
Adultery can be a Venial Sin only!
All hell broke loose yesterday, Oct. 2, with the publication of more Dubia by five Novus Ordo cardinals after ‘Pope’ Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) had responded to their first attempt to get straight answers from the ‘Pope’ but would not answer the follow-up questions.
In the tumult of the day — following a busy weekend that saw an ecumenical prayer vigil few people bothered to attend in St. Peter’s Square, in preparation for the Synod on Synodality — there was another big story that went under: the DDF’s response to the Dubia of ‘Cardinal’ Dominik Jaroslav Duka (b.… READ MORE

New Dubia Drama:
Five Conservative ‘Cardinals’ challenge Francis
[UPDATE: We have corrected an error regarding the original formulation of the Dubia. Post revised accordingly.]
Asking ‘Pope’ Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) to clarify his doctrine is risky business — especially if he responds.
This has happened now to ‘Cardinals’ Walter Brandmuller, Raymond Burke, Joseph Zen Ze-kiun, Juan Sandoval Íñiguez, and Robert Sarah, who challenged the man they erroneously believe to be the Pope of the Catholic Church regarding matters of doctrine on faith and morals.
Back on July 10 of this year, the five Novus Ordo cardinals had submitted five specific questions to Francis in the traditional ‘dubia’ (Latin for doubts) format.… READ MORE

Athanasius Schneider’s explosive Prayer for the Synod 2023: An incisive Sedevacantist Analysis
The world’s most significant insignificant Novus Ordo bishop is back in the news: the Most Rev. Athanasius Schneider, auxiliary for the diocese of Maria Santissima in Astana, Kazakhstan.
Yesterday, Sep. 28, the Vatican journalist Diane Montagna published on her Twitter (or ‘X’) account a “Prayer for the 2023 ‘Synod on Synodality'” that was composed by ‘Bp.’ Schneider (why ‘Bishop’ in quotes?). It is not clear whether the text is Montagna’s translation, or whether Schneider wrote the prayer in English. Although released a day early, it is dated Sep.… READ MORE

Francis endorses Teilhard de Chardin’s ‘Mass on the World’
His true god was evolution: the French Fr. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, S.J.
On his recent blather tour in Mongolia (Aug. 31 – Sep. 4, 2023), the Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio (‘Pope Francis’) offered some impromptu remarks after presiding over the Novus Ordo worship service (incorrectly termed ‘Holy Mass’) in the capital of Ulaanbaatar on Sep. 3. He took the opportunity to speak favorably of the notorious French Jesuit Fr. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin (1881-1955) and his infamous ‘Mass on the World’, written in 1923:

On Sep. 6, 2023, the Rev. James Altman — one of the “canceled priests” in the United States — published a video in which he explained, in his own style, why he believes that Jorge Mario Bergoglio (‘Pope Francis’) is not in fact the Pope of the Catholic Church:
This has of course triggered a wave of reactions, mostly by recognize-and-resist traditionalists (“semi-trads”) and conservative Novus Ordos who had shown support for ‘Fr.’… READ MORE

Fernandez on Papal Charism and the ‘Doctrine of the Holy Father’: Brazen Baloney or Traditional Teaching?
This blog is certainly the last place on earth that would want to defend ‘Archbishop’ (and almost ‘Cardinal’) Victor Manuel Fernandez, the Vatican’s new doctrine chief who is notorious for having written the book Heal Me with your Mouth: the Art of Kissing (1995). However, truth is truth, even if the ‘wrong’ person speaks it.
When the National Catholic Register released an interview with Fernandez on Sep. 11, 2023, one point immediately caught the ire and contempt of the recognize-and-resist traditionalists (we like to refer to them as “semi-trads”) on the internet.… READ MORE

More Heresy from the False Pope:
Every One of Us is Forgiven!
It’s Sunday, and that usually means the world’s most talkative apostate, Jorge Bergoglio (‘Pope Francis’), gives a catechetical reflection on the day’s Gospel before praying the Angelus at noon in Rome with the few hapless souls who have come to see him, mistaking him for the Pope of the Catholic Church.
Today’s Gospel reading, according to the liturgical calendar of the Novus Ordo missal of Paul VI, is Mt 18:21-35, in which our Blessed Lord tells the parable of the unforgiving servant.… READ MORE

A Commentary on the sticky Strickland Situation
By now presumably everyone reading this post is aware of the news The Pillar broke on Monday:
… READ MORE
At a meeting Saturday [Sep. 9. 2023], Pope Francis discussed with Vatican officials the prospect of requesting the resignation of Bishop Joseph Strickland of the Diocese of Tyler, Texas, The Pillar has learned.
The pope met Sept. 9 with Archbishop Robert Prevost, OSA, head of the Dicastery for Bishops, and Archbishop Christophe Pierre, apostolic nuncio to the United States – both cardinals-elect.
Several sources close to the dicastery told The Pillar ahead of the meeting that the prelates would present the pope with the results of an apostolic visitation of Strickland’s diocese, conducted earlier this year, as well as subsequent public actions by the bishop, who has emerged as an outspoken critic of the Holy Father.

Sedevacantism and the Mystery of the Church’s Passion:
Reply to Robert Morrison
On June 30, 2023, the semi-traditionalist flagship publication The Remnant published a brief article entitled “Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre’s Vision of the Great Mystery of the Church’s Passion”. Its author is Robert Morrison, a writer we have had occasion to critique a number of times before on this blog and in our podcast program.
In this post we will touch on a few things from that article that appear to call for some sedevacantist reaction. Morrison writes:

Whereas Archbishop Lefebvre accepted the existence of a great mystery as it relates to the Church’s crisis, others have attempted to eliminate the mystery, typically in one of two ways described by Archbishop Lefebvre:
“There are people who are seeing the passion of the Church and the tragedy of papacy and so they conclude that such a degradation of papacy is not possible and so the pope can not be the pope.

Vatican again permits Oriental Orthodox Mass
in historic Catholic Basilica in Rome
[Please note: An earlier version of this blog used the label “Eastern Orthodox” rather than “Oriental Orthodox”. Apparently there is a significant difference between the two; however, since both are heretical and schismatical sects, the difference is irrelevant to the point of this post.]
Under the apostate Jesuit Jorge Bergoglio (‘Pope Francis’), it is apparently becoming a common practice now to allow heretics and schismatics to use ancient Catholic basilicas in Rome for their Masses and other liturgical services.… READ MORE

Pope St. Pius X’s Motu Proprio Sacrorum Antistitum and the Oath against Modernism
When Pope Pius X was faced with the grave threat of Modernism during his reign (1903-1914), he knew he had to act quickly and decisively to stamp out this “synthesis of all heresies”, as he called it in his landmark encyclical Pascendi Dominici Gregis (n. 39), in which he exposed and refuted the pernicious doctrines of the Modernists at length.
The holy pontiff, who would be canonized a saint less than 40 years after his death (by Pope Pius XII, in 1954), realized that it would not be enough simply to condemn Modernism theoretically but it was necessary to take practical steps to actually eradicate it.… READ MORE

Pie in the Sky: Francis offers Pseudo-Religious Drivel to Mongolian Authorities
The Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio — stage name: ‘Pope Francis’ — spent the first few days of the month of September in Mongolia. The official motto of his 43rd blather tour outside Vatican City, solemnly styled an ‘apostolic journey’, was Hoping Together. Precisely what the object of that hope is supposed to be, was not explained, but we can be certain it’s not the Beatific Vision.
On Sep. 2, 2023, the fake pope met with Mongolian president Ukhnaagiin Khürelsükh and other authorities and diplomats at the state palace:

Francis to Jesuits in Portugal: Some Sodomites aren’t ‘Capable’ or ‘Mature Enough’ to Stop Sinning!
When Jorge Bergoglio (‘Pope Francis’) visited Lisbon in early August for World Youth Day, he also met with members of the Jesuit province there, as is his custom.
An English transcript of the question-and-answer session was released on Aug. 28, 2023, by the Rev. Antonio Spadaro, S.J., who just recently published a blasphemous sermon on Our Lord’s encounter with the Canaanite woman:

Brazilian ‘Archbishop’ justifies giving ‘Communion’ to Muslim Sheik
In the Vatican II religion, Mr. Geremias Steinmetz (b. 1965) is the ‘Catholic Archbishop’ of Londrina, Brazil. Jorge Bergoglio, aka ‘Pope Francis’, personally appointed him to that position in 2017.
With the recent death of 89-year-old ‘Cardinal’ Geraldo Majella Agnelo (Aug. 26, 2023), formerly the ‘Archbishop’ of São Salvador da Bahia, Steinmetz found himself participating in a funeral ‘Mass’ presided over by ‘Cardinal’ Sérgio da Rocha on Monday, Aug. 28. (A few years back da Rocha presided over a special ‘Mass’ with a drag queen, but that’s another story.)… READ MORE

Novus Ordo Blogger on WYD Sacrilege:
‘You can’t hurt Jesus’
When World Youth Day took place earlier this month, we saw the usual grotesqueries, especially the storing of Novus Ordo-consecrated hosts in large plastic containers.
The conservative and trad outrage on social media about it triggered Novus Ordo blogger Simcha Fisher to pen the following piece:
In her write-up, she agrees that World Youth Day should not have had distribution of [Novus Ordo] Communion if it could not be done with the necessary decorum and respect due to the Lord.… READ MORE
