For ‘Access to the Sacred Circle of Spirits’: Francis participates in Native American Smudge Ceremony
His hand on his heart: Antipope Francis follows the instructions of the Native American “sage” Raymond Gros-Louis
Under his pseudonym “Pope Francis”, the Jesuit apostate Jorge Bergoglio is currently on an extended “apology tour” for Native Americans in Canada.
On his first full day in the land first evangelized by Jesuit missionaries in the 17th century, this past Monday, July 25, Bergoglio attended an indigenous “healing dance” performed for “Mother Earth”, the nature goddess which the false pope himself also adores or venerates. … READ MORE

Novus Ordo “Mass” in the Ocean
— with Air Mattress Altar
Paul VI’s Novus Ordo Missae, the “New Mass” of the Vatican II Church, is the gift that keeps on giving.
While Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) is currently making an apology tour through Canada, even donning a Native American headdress and getting smudged by the indigenous, an Italian news site is reporting on a “Mass at Sea” in which an air mattress was used as an altar.… READ MORE

Caution! This is a Novus Ordo cringe compilation…
Francis has an important message to Buddhists: “Jesus and Buddha knew the need to overcome the ego”. What he didn’t mention: Only One of the two also provided the spiritual means necessary to accomplish that (and no, “double belonging” won’t work).
So they can’t figure out why no one is taking their Vatican II church seriously, huh?
In this year’s message for the World Day of Prayer for the Care of Creation, Bergoglio wants you to practice an “ecological spirituality” in the “great cathedral of creation” lest the “song of creation” continue to be accompanied by a “chorus of cries of anguish” of “our sister, mother earth”.… READ MORE

The Essence of Christianity according to Bergoglio
On Tuesday, July 19, 2022, the Jesuit apostate running Vatican City (Jorge Bergoglio, aka “Pope Francis”) tried to impress the world by publishing a tweet concerning the “essence” of Christianity.
It is amazing that a man who detests Scholasticism as much as he does even knows what the notion of essence is. Or does he?
Fr. Bernard Wullener’s Dictionary of Scholastic Philosophy defines the concept of essence as follows: “what a thing is; the internal principles whereby a thing is what it is and has its specific perfections; quiddity; internal constitution of a thing” (p.… READ MORE

On those ‘Spiritual Dangers’ of Sedevacantism:
A Reply to Eric Sammons
It is evident that, as of late, Sedevacantism has been on the minds of many “semi-traditionalists” (our moniker for those who take a “recognize-the-Pope-as-valid-but-resist-his-bad-teachings-and-laws” approach to the current situation), and it is easy to see why. Sedevacantism is the elephant in the room that is staring everyone in the face, while the “Francis papacy” forces the old recognize-and-resist narrative to collapse like a house of cards under the weight of its own ever more obvious absurdity.
Thus it is not surprising that we have recently seen a truckload of anti-sedevacantist material being pumped out on various semi-trad web sites, among which is an article by Eric Sammons that warns readers to beware of the “spiritual dangers” that are supposedly found in Sedevacantism:
Frequent readers of this blog may remember that we have vehemently criticized Sammons in the past, taking him to task for his truly appalling theology:

Apostate Francis Interviewer Eugenio Scalfari is Dead
(image credit: Quirinale.it)
Italian journalist Eugenio Scalfari has died at the age of 98 in Rome. This is being reported by the Associated Press and by Vatican News:
In case the name doesn’t ring a bell, Scalfari was the founder and editor (1976-1996) of the left-leaning Italian paper La Repubblica, the only newspaper Francis says he reads. Baptized a Catholic, Scalfari subsequently lost the Faith and became an apostate.… READ MORE

Francis on Biden’s Extreme Abortion Support:
“I leave it to his Conscience and that he speaks to his Bishop”!
Since late June, there has been a flurry of wide-ranging interviews with “Pope” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio), lest your summer should be calm and peaceful and, worst of all, Bergoglio-free.
The latest one is the fourth in quick succession, and was conducted and released by the Mexican-American TelevisaUnivision. In the United States it aired yesterday, July 11, on Univision.
The entire conversation, conducted in Bergoglio’s native language, Spanish, lasted two hours, and it underscores once more that the apostate from Buenos Aires likes nothing more than to hear himself talk, offering his infinite wisdom to this poor world.… READ MORE

Jorge Bergoglio and the “Art” of Celebrating the Novus Ordo Liturgy

On June 29, 2022, the Jesuit apostate Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) issued a so-called Apostolic Letter, entitled Desiderio Desideravi. The title is taken from the holy Words of our Lord Jesus Christ at the beginning of the Last Supper: “With desire I have desired to eat this pasch with you, before I suffer” (Lk 22:15).
The subject matter with which this letter concerns itself is that of the Sacred Liturgy, or, in Vatican II speak: “on the liturgical formation of the People of God”.… READ MORE

Today we would like to introduce you to a gem of Brutalist architecture, the famed church associated with St. John’s Abbey in Collegeville, Minnesota.
The architect who committed this eyesore is Marcel Breuer (1902-81), who is also responsible for St. Francis de Sales church in Norton Shores, Michigan.
Design and construction of this church began in the 1950s, so one can see how deeply the spirit of Modernism and the subsequent Vatican II religion was alive and well during that time.… READ MORE

The Vatican and the Ecumenical Movement:
From Stern Condemnation to Enthusiastic Approval
The Second Vatican Council in session (image: manhai/Flickr/CC BY 2.0; cropped)
The Second Vatican Council (1962-65) is the Modernist robber synod that was presided over by Angelo Roncalli (“Pope John XXIII”) and Giovanni Battista Montini (“Pope Paul VI”) to usher in the new religion that has since replaced Catholicism not only in the Vatican but also in all dioceses and religious orders under its jurisdiction.
To this very day there are still people who claim that the documents released by this fateful assembly, typically abbreviated as “Vatican II”, do not represent a genuine rupture in Catholic doctrine compared to the prior magisterium of 1,900 years.… READ MORE

“Pope” Francis has released a follow-up “Apostolic Letter” to his 2021 motu proprio Traditionis Custodes severely limiting the use of the 1962 Roman Missal (“Traditional Latin Mass”). This new document is called Desiderio Desideravi and was published without prior announcement on June 29, 2022, the Feast of Saints Peter and Paul.
The Vatican has made the text of Desiderio Desideravi available in several languages:

“Pilgrims of Hope”, you see…
Vatican releases Logo for Jubilee Year 2025
[UPDATED 29-JUN-22: Additional video added]
Some time ago the Vatican announced that 2025 would be a jubilee year, which ordinarily takes place every 25 years.
Today the headquarters of the Novus Ordo Church released the logo to go with it. It is displayed above. The theme is “pilgrims of hope”, a motto that basically screams Vatican II.
The Vatican’s Dicastery for Evangelization is responsible for selecting this logo, which was submitted as part of a competition. “A total of 294 entries were received from 213 cities and 48 different countries…,” and this one made the cut, according to a report by Vatican News.… READ MORE

Official Logo for Francis’ Trip to Canada released
Today the Vatican officially confirmed that Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) will go on another
blather tour “Apostolic Journey” to Canada from July 24-30, 2022. There he will visit Edmonton, Maskwacis, Lac Ste. Anne, Québec, and Iqaluit. The full program has been published here.
Chief purpose of the trip is to offer some more apologies to natives, who had visited the false pope in the Vatican earlier this year, after having discovered alleged mass graves near Catholic educational institutions, which the indigenous assume are testimony to ghastly deeds committed by Catholics against their prior generations many decades ago.… READ MORE
