No “exile” for Ratzinger after all…

Br. Alexis Bugnolo’s Narrative collapses as Benedict XVI returns to Vatican City

Another post on Benedict XVI’s trip to Germany? Yes, one more. The reason for giving this so much attention is the fact that more and more people who are sick and tired of Francis but don’t want to be sedevacantists are turning to “that fox” (Lk 13:32) Joseph Ratzinger as their alternative. This gives them the happy illusion of having a real Pope who in their minds retains some semblance of orthodoxy, especially compared to the openly apostate Jorge Bergoglio. The leading English-speaking voice among them is Brother Alexis Bugnolo.

“Comfort of Migrants” – Francis adds new Invocation to Litany of Blessed Virgin Mary

The Frankster is at it again.

Today, June 20, 2020, he had his underling in the so-called Congregation for Divine Worship add three new titles for Our Lady to the Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary, also called the Litany of Loreto. The first two are orthodox and not objectionable — the third one is born of Bergoglio’s liberation theology:

  • Mother of Mercy (Mater Misericordiae)
  • Mother of Hope (Mater Spei)
  • Comfort of Migrants (Solacium Migrantium)

“The first invocation shall be placed after ‘Mater Ecclesiæ’ [Mother of the Church], the second after ‘Mater divinæ gratiæ’ [Mother of Divine Grace], while the third shall be placed after ‘Refugium peccatorum’ [Refuge of Sinners]”, “Cardinal” Robert Sarah notes in the official letter announcing the addition of the new titles.

Benedict XVI Never to Return to the Vatican?
Ratzinger Drama in Germany

Fr. Joseph Ratzinger, “Pope Emeritus” Benedict XVI, is now in Regensburg, Germany, visiting his 96-year-old brother, Georg, who appears to be close to death.

As the visit is an eminently private one, with no interviews or photo opportunities, no official information has come from Benedict XVI or his entourage, although the diocese of Regensburg has released two statements to the public so far.

Benedict XVI leaves Vatican City to visit sick Brother in Germany

Fr. Joseph Ratzinger on Sep. 22, 2012

Fr. Joseph Ratzinger, the public heretic who played Pope of the Catholic Church under the stage name of “Benedict XVI” from 2005-13 and now calls himself “Pope Emeritus”, has left Vatican City for an indefinite period of time. This morning he was flown to Germany to visit his gravely ill brother, “Mgr.” Georg Ratzinger, who is 96 and resides at his private home in the Bavarian city of Regensburg (Ratisbonne).

Benedict, himself 93, arrived at Munich airport around noon local time, where he was picked up by “Bishop” Rudolf Voderholzer of Regensburg.

Vatican celebrates 60 Years of Ecumenism:
How it Contradicts Catholic Doctrine

Jorge Bergoglio with other non-Catholics in 2014

On Jan. 6, 1928, Pope Pius XI released Mortalium Animos, a magnificent encyclical against the false attempts at religious unity, today collectively known as “ecumenism”, that were beginning to blossom at the time.

Although the ecumenism that the Vatican II religion today worships as a new Golden Calf is not entirely identical to the ecumenism Pius XI condemned almost 100 years ago, it is nevertheless the very same error in essence, for it arose from it and still seeks a union between Catholics and non-Catholics that does not consist of what the same Pope identified as the only possible union: “…[T]he union of Christians can only be promoted by promoting the return to the one true Church of Christ of those who are separated from it, for in the past they have unhappily left it” (Mortalium Animos, n.

Viganò lets it rip: Former Vatican Nuncio publishes scathing Condemnation of Vatican II Religion

One day after we blasted “Abp.” Carlo Maria Viganò‘s open letter to President Trump for containing “dangerous heresy in attractive wrapping paper”, the former Vatican nuncio to the United States released yet another statement.

Contrary to our expectations, however, it wasn’t simply “more of the same” as his previous contributions. This time, he delivered a stunningly severe condemnation of the entire Novus Ordo religion and correctly pointed to the Second Vatican Council (Vatican II) as its root cause.

Invalid Resignation or Invalid Election?
Benedict XVI’s Denial of the Dogma of Papal Primacy

It is fashionable these days to come up with all sorts of ideas and theories that render the resignation of “Pope” Benedict XVI on Feb. 28, 2013, invalid. This thesis, which we have nicknamed “Resignationism”, is very comforting to those semi-traditionalists and conservatives in the Vatican II Church who can see clearly that Francis is not a Catholic but a manifest apostate and yet will not, for whatever reason, countenance Sedevacantism as the correct alternative position that alone can explain the madness we have been witnessing since the death of Pope Pius XII in 1958.

Dangerous Heresy in attractive Wrapping Paper:
“Abp.” Viganò’s Letter to President Trump

The former Vatican nuncio to the United States, “Archbishop” Carlo Maria Viganò, has been hiding at an undisclosed location since August of 2018, after he publicly accused “Pope” Francis of having known about and covered up sexual abuse perpetrated by “Cardinal” Theodore McCarrick.

On June 6, 2020, Fr. Viganò — he’s a valid priest but not a bishop — released a 3-page open letter to U.S.

Francis: “The Wounds inflicted on our Mother Earth are Wounds that also Bleed in Us”

Before Francis, there was Michael Jackson: Heal the World (1992)

Each day seems to be some other World Day of this or that secular cause observed by the United Nations, and June 5 happens to be that of the Environment.

It won’t take you long to guess who had something to say about it: Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”), of course. When it comes to matters of Sacred Theology, the man pretending to be the Pope of the Catholic Church is quick to confess his limited competence — with regard to everything else, he considers himself an expert.

And he prays a lot!

Francis: Being Angry with God is a Form of Prayer

Today, June 3, saw Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope” Francis) warn his hapless followers again that what he is about to tell them “seems like a heresy”. He’d infamously done it before — remember? –, although this time around, blasphemy would probably be the more accurate label. (That Francis doesn’t actually care about heresy or blasphemy is, of course, another matter.)

In any case, here’s what the Frankster said today during his General Audience. The topic was Abraham as a model for prayer:

Brothers and sisters, we learn from Abraham, we learn to pray with faith: to listen to the Lord, to walk, dialogue up to arguing.

Novus Ordo Jesuit: “When I repeat the Words of Consecration, I sometimes wonder what Christ meant”

Children say the darndest things. So do Jesuits.

Take the Rev. Dominique Degoul, for example. He’s a Jesuit presbyter for the Vatican II Sect, works as a university chaplain in Paris, and has been assigned the future director of the Teilhard de Chardin Centre. How’s that for advance warning?

Degoul recently gave an interview to the French Novus Ordo publication La Croix “about what the Mass means in the life of a believer”, specifically in the context of the recent Coronavirus restrictions.

The Papacy as God’s GPS:
A Simple Analogy to illustrate our Predicament

The acronym GPS stands for “global positioning system”. Many people have one, either in their car, their smartphone, or both. It is essentially a satellite-based navigation system that allows the user to know exactly where in the world he is and what roads he needs to take in order to arrive safely at his desired destination.

In this post, we will use a GPS as an analogy to illustrate the essential difference between the positions of sedevacantists, Novus Ordo adherents, and the people in the recognize-and-resist camp, whom we typically call “semi-traditionalists” because their adherence to Tradition is only partial.

Tradition and the Magisterium:
Refuting the False Claims of Prof. Roberto de Mattei

On April 2, 2020, the semi-traditionalist flagship publication Catholic Family News published an interview with Prof. Roberto de Mattei, an Italian historian who is also the founder of the Lepanto Foundation and editor of the Corrispondenza Romana news site. De Mattei frequently speaks at conservative Novus Ordo and semi-trad conferences and is routinely promoted in the publications of those groups as a guiding light of Tradition in our dark times.

In fact, it was precisely in that putative capacity that Matthew Gaspers, managing editor of Catholic Family News, recently interviewed de Mattei, since the hierarchy of the institution they both claim is the Catholic Church, obviously does not hold the Catholic Faith and therefore cannot be considered a reliable teacher of the same.

Vatican “Cardinal” Koch: Traditional Latin Mass and Novus Ordo Rite need to be Fused Together

Guess which rite he prefers: Kurt Koch (b. 1950)

The Swiss Modernist “Cardinal” Kurt Koch is the Vatican’s chief of ecumenism. In January of 2017, he complained that there was no consensus on even so much as the goal of ecumenism. In other words, they’re all journeying, as Francis likes to say, they just have no idea towards what. All they know is that they’ve got to keep moving forward.

As an ecumenist and liturgist, Mr.

Swiss Diocese appoints Woman to succeed Vicar General

On May 19, 2020, the Swiss diocese of Lausanne, Geneva, and Fribourg announced on its web site that its “bishop”, Charles Morerod, O.P., has made an appointment to replace the outgoing episcopal vicar (vicar general) for the German-speaking Fribourg region of the diocese. The post is currently held by “Fr.” Pascal Marquard, who will transition to a parish in his hometown of Zurich. Effective Aug. 1, the new man on the job will be — a woman.

Yes, you read that right. Morerod appointed 60-year-old married laywoman Marianne Pohl-Henzen to succeed his vicar general.
