Gospel of Man vs. Gospel of God…

From the Supernatural to the Natural: How Francis neutralizes the Gospel while appearing to preach it

As always: He’s got plenty to say…

On Jan. 30, 2020, the Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio (aka “Pope Francis”) addressed the plenary assembly of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Destruction of the Faith, currently led by his fellow-Jesuit “Cardinal” Luis Ladaria Ferrer. A translation of the speech has been made available by Zenit:

The discourse provides a good concrete example of how the false pope continually naturalizes the Catholic Faith — that is, he continually refocuses the essence of Catholicism.

No Saint Athanasius: “Bishop” Schneider continues to spread Errors about the Papacy

The German branch of the Vatican II Sect has recently opened its so-called “Synodal Way” or “Synodal Path” (Synodaler Weg), which is essentially an elaborate and structured series of chat sessions in which the laity get to tell their pastors what changes they want to see in the “Catholic Church” going forward. And since we’re not talking about just any country but about the Land of Luther, long one of the hotbeds of Modernism, this will produce a veritable catalog of ultra-liberal desiderata: married clergy, women priests, homo “marriage” ceremonies in church, and the like.

The Sudden Disappearance of Georg Gänswein: Vatican confirms “Redistribution” of Duties

It must be a complete coincidence that after the inglorious kerfuffle over the Ratzinger/Sarah book on celibacy and the priesthood, the man caught in the middle of it all has suddenly vanished from the public eye.

We are talking about Archbishop Mr. Georg Gänswein, a 63-year-old German who plays an interesting and significant double role in the Vatican: On the one hand, he is the head of the “papal” household under Francis and therefore present at most of the “Pope’s” public appearances. At the same time, he is Benedict XVI’s personal secretary, a job he’s had since Joseph Ratzinger was elected in April of 2005.

One Year Later: The Apostate Abu Dhabi Declaration on Human Fraternity

It was a year ago, on Feb. 4, 2019, that “Pope” Francis dropped the spiritual “mother of all bombs” in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates. He signed a common declaration with the Muslim Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, a certain Ahmad Al-Tayyib, entitled A Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together. In the midst of this document is found the following statement:

Freedom is a right of every person: each individual enjoys the freedom of belief, thought, expression and action.

Celibacy, shmelibacy!

Roberto de Mattei: Francis Opens Door to Married Priests in upcoming Exhortation on Amazon Synod

Peek-a-boo! Open or closed?!

The Novus Ordo Church historian Prof. Roberto de Mattei has published an article on his web site asserting that several “bishops” have leaked to him a pre-released portion of Francis’ upcoming post-synodal “Apostolic exhortation” that speaks of lifting the requirement of clerical celibacy.

But first, some background.

On Jan. 13, 2020, “Cardinal” Claudio Hummes, the general relator of the notorious Amazon Synod held in the Vatican in October of last year, sent a confidential letter to the world’s Novus Ordo bishops announcing that Francis’ exhortation would be published “by the end of this month or in early February.”

Francis tells U.S. Novus Ordo Bishops he supports public Benefits for Sodomite Couples

Kudos to the semi-trad Whispers of Restoration blog for catching this:

This past Monday, Jan. 27, 2020, a total of 33 Novus Ordo bishops from California, Nevada, and Hawaii visited “Pope” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) in the Vatican for their obligatory quinquennial ad limina visit, during which they have to report to their boss on the state of their dioceses. During the meeting, which reportedly lasted well over two hours, they also got a chance to ask Bergoglio whatever questions they liked.

The so-called Catholic News Service reported the following about the visit:

The pastoral care of LGBT Catholics was another topic Pope Francis spoke about, Archbishop [Salvatore] Cordileone [of San Francisco] said.

Just “Child’s Play”? Refutation of a Historian who says Vatican II Church will “Bounce Back” from Bergoglian Chaos

Every so often, perhaps because they are exhausted by all the cognitive dissonance adhering to the Novus Ordo Sect while trying to be Catholic brings, certain conservative and semi-traditionalist writers and pundits will push the idea that despite the current morass, things really aren’t quite so bad after all. Compared to other periods of Church history, they contend, the present situation is not nearly so troublesome, or at least it is certainly not without equal precedent.

Attack of the metaphors!

It’s Story Time: Francis offers Ideology-Laden Poetry in Message for World Communications Day

It seems there isn’t a day in the year when the Argentinian actor Jorge Bergoglio — currently playing “Pope Francis” in what must be dubbed the never-ending story of The Two Antipopes — doesn’t have something to say.

Today was no exception. January 24 being so-called World Social Communications Day, Mr. Bergoglio felt compelled to release yet another one of his priceless messages to the world. Since Catholic theology isn’t his forte, he loaded it up once again with countless metaphors, quoting Sacred Scripture here and there to give it a Catholic spiritual veneer.

Heresy in Evangelii Gaudium:
What is the Greatest Commandment?

If any further proof was needed that Francis likes to equate God and man, look no further than his 2013 “Apostolic Exhortation” Evangelii Gaudium, which, being published within the first year of his election, is basically the official outline of the program of his fake pontificate. That it was endorsed by Hell’s Apostle Hans Küng is not surprising but worthy of a dishonorable mention.

Characterized by the same verbosity we have come to expect from the writings of Novus Ordo prelates, the exhortation contains a total of 287 numbered paragraphs.

Tempest in a Beer Mug: 130 Novus Ordos and Semi-Trads protest the German “Synodal Way” in Munich

The German city of Munich, capital of the state of Bavaria, is known for its fine beer, the Hofbräuhaus, and its annual Oktoberfest. It is also home of the see of the Archbishop of Munich and Freising, a position currently under usurpation by the rotund apostate Mr. “Cardinal” Reinhard Marx.

On Saturday, Jan. 18, Munich became the place of a protest that had not been advertised beforehand. On Friday afternoon, Michael Matt of The Remnant had sent out a tweet with a first and rather cryptic announcement: “Please spread the word.

Breaking: Major International Protest today in Munich against Amazon Synod Fallout

Ladies and gentlemen, things are beginning to heat up in the Vatican II Sect. Apparently on very short notice, a major international protest has been organized and is taking place today in the German city of Munich, the seat of “Cardinal” Reinhard Marx, the head of Novus Ordo bishops in the land of Martin Luther.

So far, it seems that only two web sites have reported on this taking place: The Remnant in the United States and Marco Tosatti’s Stilum Curiae blog in Italy.

Alas, the protest is going to be a silent one.

Francis: Lutherans are “Members of one and the same Mystical Body of Christ” as Catholics

While everyone is busy with the ongoing fallout from the Ratzinger/Sarah book — the latest is that “Card.” Sarah met with Benedict XVI today — Chaos Frank received an ecumenical delegation of the Lutheran Church of Finland today, Jan. 17, on their annual trip to Rome for the feast of St. Henrik.

In his address to his fellow-non-Catholics, the false pope declared:

Together you are journeying – as all of us are – in communion of faith, so as to encourage one another and to strengthen one another in Christian discipleship.
