No Holy Spirit here:
Welcome to the “Tent” Church of the Unholy Ghost

Alright, everyone, it is the liturgical season of Septuagesima, the annual two-and-a-half-week prelude to Lent. Why not practice some mortification of the eyes?

The so-called Heilig-Geist-Kirche (“Church of the Holy Ghost”) in Ergenzingen, Germany, affords ample opportunity for visual penance, and the title image above is a good start.

The “sacred” building in question is located near the city Rottenburg and part of the diocese of Rottenburg-Stuttgart, which was once shepherded occupied by the Resurrection denier and general Modernist apostate “Bishop” Walter Kasper (1989-99) before he was promoted to being the Vatican’s chief ecumenist.… READ MORE

 Denouncing “Newchurch”:
Another Theological Train Wreck from The Remnant

Dr. Jason Morgan is a university professor in Japan and author of numerous articles that have appeared in various journals and papers over the years.

Since 2018, he has been writing for the recognize-and-resist flagship publication The Remnant. One of his first posts was about Sedevacantism, to which we responded here:

One of his most recent contributions is a scathing denouncement of the Vatican II Sect, to which he, quite appropriately, gives the Orwellian term “Newchurch”:

This write-up is actually quite tragic itself, especially considering that the author believes himself to be a faithful traditional Roman Catholic and his position to be expressive of orthodox Catholicism.… READ MORE

Pope Pius XII: Even if Not Convinced by Church Teaching, “Obligation to Obey Still Remains”

The heroically virtuous Pope Pius X was declared a saint in the year 1954 by Pope Pius XII. As the cardinals were all gathered in Rome for the joyous occasion of the canonization ceremony in late May, the Holy Father summoned them for an allocution (address) called Si Diligis that focused on the Catholic Church’s teaching office, her magisterium. This address is extremely instructive and available in full English translation at the following link:

Later that year, Pius XII gave another speech to cardinals, one that was meant as a continuation of his May address.… READ MORE

Patrick Coffin dumps Francis, reverts to Benedict XVI

Patrick Coffin is the latest big-name individual in the Novus Ordo Church to publicly announce his belief that Benedict XVI’s resignation from the “Papacy” in 2013 was invalid, and therefore Francis is an Antipope (=false pope). This position has received various monikers over the years, such as “Benevacantism”, “Beneplenism”, the “BiP theory” (BiP = Benedict is Pope), and “Resignationism” (our preferred term).

Coffin came to prominence in the conservative “Catholic” world as host of the radio program Catholic Answers Live put out by the high-profile Novus Ordo apologetics org Catholic Answers, founded by Karl Keating and currently run by Christopher Check.… READ MORE

Building a Better World –
“Pope” Francis vs. Pope Pius XII

Yesterday, Feb. 10, 2022, the so-called Catholic News Agency released a report stating the following:

In a video message on Thursday, Pope Francis encouraged Christians to stay committed to making the world a more just and peaceful place, as his predecessor Pius XII urged 70 years ago.

Pope Francis sent his brief message to the Movimento per un Mondo Migliore (Movement for a Better World), which is celebrating 70 years since its founding in 1952.

The Catholic group was created in response to Pope Pius XII’s radio message to the Roman faithful, transmitted on Feb.

Apostate adrift: Francis says Fraternity is “Anchor of Salvation for Humanity”

To mark the second anniversary of the incredibly important International Day of Human Fraternity proclaimed by the United Nations, the Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) released a video message on Feb. 4, 2022.

Before we critique the contents of this latest Bergoglian drivel, let’s first look at the larger context in which it appeared: the interreligious “human fraternity” project started by Francis and Grand Imam Ahmed Al-Tayeb.

The Egyptian Al-Tayeb is the grand imam of Al-Azhar University in Cairo and, in addition to Bergoglio, the other signatory to the apostate Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together, which the two formally ratified at Abu Dhabi, U.A.E.,… READ MORE

Game Over: Blasphemous and Heretical Declaration on Human Fraternity becomes official “Papal” Act

It was three years ago today, on Feb. 4, 2019, that the Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) joined the Egyptian Grand Imam of Al-Azhar, Ahmed Al-Tayyeb, in signing a common declaration entitled A Document on Human Fraternity for World Peace and Living Together. This took place as part of an interreligious meeting in Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates (video here).… READ MORE

Faithless Francis: Heretics and Apostates are Part of the Church, “We Are Brothers”

Today being February 2, it is the Feast of the Purification of the Blessed Virgin Mary, also known as Candlemas. That doesn’t keep the apostate Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) from really letting it rip, however — on the contrary, it seems to give him all the more impetus to blaspheme and spread false doctrine.

The Argentinian pseudo-pope presided over a Novus Ordo worship service in St. Peter’s Basilica for the occasion, specifically for members of institutes of consecrated life and for members of societies of apostolic life.… READ MORE

‘Fr. Z’ wants you to watch ‘Don’t Look Up’…

Rated Z: Rev. John Zuhlsdorf recommends Movie with Nudity and Profanity

On Jan. 14, 2022, the blogging “traditional Catholic” presbyter John Zuhlsdorf — known by his moniker “Father Z” — informed his readership that he had just watched “an interesting movie” that he thinks “could be a metaphor for what is going on in the Church”. The film is called Don’t Look Up (2021) and falls into the genre of satirical science fiction.

What’s the problem? The problem is that the 138-minute motion picture is really not something permissible for a Catholic to watch, as we will discuss shortly.… READ MORE

“And he opened his mouth unto blasphemies against God” (Apoc 13:6):
The Jesuit apostate and false pope Jorge Bergoglio

This past Sunday, Jan. 23, 2022, the Novus Ordo Church celebrated “Sunday of the Word of God” for its Third Sunday in Ordinary Time (in the traditional Roman calendar, it was the Third Sunday after the Epiphany). The feast was instituted only recently by “Pope” Francis (Jorge Bergoglio) himself, with the motu proprio letter Aperuit Illis of Sep. 30, 2019.… READ MORE

Why You’re Not Novus Ordo Anymore:
A “Eucharistic Celebration” instead of the Holy Sacrifice

It is an open secret that the authorities of the Vatican II Church struggle with the fact that fewer and fewer of their members still bother to show up at church on Sundays, and that many of them even abandon their pseudo-Catholic religion altogether.

In fact, as The Wall Street Journal reported earlier this month, the “Catholic” Church is now “losing Latin America”. What might account for such a devastating decline in “practicing Catholics”?

The answer is obvious, staring everyone in the face.… READ MORE

Giacomo della Chiesa died 100 years ago today

In Memoriam:
Centenary of the Death of Pope Benedict XV (1914-1922)

It was at 6:00 am local time, exactly 100 years ago today, that His Holiness Pope Benedict XV breathed his last. January 22, 1922, was a Sunday.

After almost seven-and-a-half years, Benedict’s pontificate was over. The Pope’s death was not sudden but had announced itself, as it were, a few days in advance. Tragically, there had been some premature reports of the Pope’s passing, but on Jan. 22, the official confirmation came from the Vatican.

The following are clips of some newspaper title pages of Jan.… READ MORE

Tendentious Theology:
Francis’ Selective Use of the Concept of Moral Obligation


Discovers moral obligations only when useful to him: The false pope Jorge Bergoglio

It is well known that “Pope” Francis’ 2016 exhortation Amoris Laetitia is far removed from any notion of moral obligation with regard to the sexual purity demanded by God in the Sixth and Ninth Commandments.

In the controversial document, the false pope, whose real name is Jorge Bergoglio, goes so far as to introduce a subjective morality (based on personal conscience) to replace the objective demands of traditional Catholic morality.… READ MORE

Report: Vatican preparing Decree on Ecclesia Dei Institutes to be released in March

The French newspaper La Croix has released a report with more information about the future of the Traditional Latin Mass in the Vatican II Church.

Entitled “How Pope Francis sees Church Traditionalists”, it was written by their Vatican-based correspondent Loup Besmond de Senneville and was published in French yesterday, Jan. 17, 2022. An English translation was released today for the international edition:

Although not an “official” Novus Ordo newspaper, La Croix is very much affiliated with the Vatican II Church and is owned by Bayard Presse, which in turn is owned by the Augustinians of the Assumption.… READ MORE

Beyond heresy: The Modernist Jorge Bergoglio masquerades as Pope of the Catholic Church

It’s that time of the year again when Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope” Francis) receives a delegation of Finnish Protestants so they can blather about walking on the ecumenical journey together.

Vatican News reports on today’s extremely spiritual encounter here, and the video site Rome Reports has put together the following summary:

This ecumenical “pilgrimage” always takes place in January, around the time of the so-called “Week of Prayer for Christian Unity”, which is an ecumenicized version of the traditional Catholic “Chair of Unity Octave”, which was approved by Pope St.… READ MORE
