Vatican “Abp.” Vincenzo Paglia retweets Picture of Naked Adults with Naked Children
Some stories are so disgusting that one absolutely detests having to blog about them. This is one of them.
This morning, the Vatican’s president of the so-called Pontifical Academy for Life, “Abp.” Vincenzo Paglia, sent a message on the social media platform Twitter that includes an image showing a nude man and a nude woman lying on the floor, surrounded by four nude little children.
The conservative Novus Ordo web site Life Site covers the story in a news article by Anthony Murdoch and Pete Baklinski:
The tweet in question did not originate with Paglia; he “merely” retweeted it and commented on it.… READ MORE

Debunking Francis’ latest Demagoguery
Just because it’s vacation time in Rome and Vatican City doesn’t mean the Argentinian apostate Jorge Bergoglio has nothing to say. Under his pseudonym “Pope Francis”, the Bergoglian jaw is always moving — if not physically, at least virtually.
On July 14, 2020, Francis’ digital self posted the following message on Twitter:
For those unable to see the image, the text says: “On the Day of Judgment we will not be judged for our ideas, but for the compassion we have shown to others.” The tweet can be accessed directly using this link.… READ MORE

“But let your speech be yea, yea: no, no…” (Mt 5:37)
Bp. Richard Williamson’s Strange Theology on the ‘New Mass’
Long-time readers of this web site may remember the outrage and exasperation the recognize-and-resist bishop Richard Williamson (b. 1940, ex-SSPX) triggered five years ago when he answered a laywoman’s question about whether it was ever permissible to assist at the Novus Ordo Missae (“New Mass”) of Paul VI. The answer the Lefebvrist bishop gave was so lengthy, convoluted, and vacillating that by the end he had said everything and its opposite, from yes to no, to maybe, to ask someone else.… READ MORE
Tongue-in-cheek commentary on the Vatican summer camp…
Summer Fun at the Vatican — but does Francis approve?
Fun and games at the Vatican — nothing wrong with that! Although tiny, Vatican City State is a sovereign nation that has real citizens, old and young.
For the first time ever, Vatican City is now offering summer fun to the children of Vatican employees. Rome Reports has put together a little video overview of what’s going down in the world’s smallest country this summer. Have a look:
Just recently we got a peek inside the infernal Paul VI Audience Hall, which, as mentioned in the video, has now been set up for children to have fun while the Vatican apparatus is on vacation.… READ MORE
Liturgical freak show in Land of Luther…
Send in the Clowns:
Liturgical Theater of the Absurd in Germany
The infamous Nativity of Mary (Maria Geburt) parish in Aschaffenburg, Germany, has done it again.
On Sunday, July 5, its pastor, Mr. Markus Krauth, uploaded three videos showing who-knows-what going on in his wreckovated church, apparently either before or during “Mass”. The spectacle is so absurd, you have to see it to believe it. Don’t speak German? Don’t worry — those who do, won’t understand what’s going on either:
In case the videos won’t play embedded in this post, you can watch them directly on YouTube here: Part 1 | Part 2 | Part 3.… READ MORE

A Brief Commentary on The Remnant‘s “Open Letter to Pope Francis”
(screenshot from Remnant video “CHURCH IN CRISIS: World’s Catholics Resist Pope to His Face”)
Just as the infamous Amazon Synod was concluding in Rome last year, the editor-in-chief of the American recognize-and-resist flagship publication The Remnant, Michael J. Matt, sat down and penned an “Open Letter to Pope Francis”. Although dated Oct. 26, 2019, it was not published until Nov. 20, 2019, together with a video version of the letter, in which a melodramatic Matt reads the text out loud:
Our most recent podcast, TRADCAST EXPRESS 113, provides an audio commentary on the Open Letter, interspersed in between soundbites of Matt’s reading of the missive.… READ MORE
Infernal Art and Architecture in the Vatican
The Vatican’s Hell Hall:
The Weird Mysteries of the Paul VI Audience Hall
Darkness Visible: Eerie, shrieking skull-like faces seem to peer out menacingly from the base 0f La Resurrezione, an eight ton sculpture, as “Pope” Francis speaks during an audience on November 21, 2015 at the Paul VI Audience Hall at the Vatican. It is only one of the many bizarre things associated with this auditorium. (image: Getty Images/AFP / rights-managed)

Brother of Benedict XVI
Fr. Georg Ratzinger dies in Regensburg
Fr. Georg Ratzinger, the brother of “Pope Emeritus” Benedict XVI (Joseph Ratzinger), has died at the age of 96.
Ratzinger, the former long-time director of the world-famous Regensburger Domspatzen cathedral choir, passed away in Regensburg, Germany, on July 1, 2020. This was being reported earlier today by various highly reliable news outlets, and has now been confirmed also by the Vatican:
On June 18, Benedict XVI had surprisingly left the Vatican enclave for an emergency trip to see his brother one last time, whose health had seriously deteriorated.… READ MORE
Talk about being in error!
Did the Council of Florence Teach Error? A Response to Athanasius Schneider’s Attempt to Save Vatican II
No matter how one looks at it, the only way one can ever justify or excuse the abominable Second Vatican Council (1962-65) is by trashing the Catholic Church prior to the council. Mr. Athanasius Schneider, auxiliary “bishop” (why the quotes?) of the diocese of Maria Santissima in Astana, Kazakhstan, has just shown that that goes not only for open Modernists but also for some “traditionalists.”
In a newly-released text, the Kazakh prelate once again repeats his claim that there is historical precedent for the idea that a Pope can correct the errors of a prior ecumenical council.… READ MORE

Do You Believe in the Papacy?
Take this brief Test and Find Out!
Frequent visitors to this web site know that the topic of the Catholic Papacy is continually broached here. The reason for that is that a correct understanding of the Papacy is absolutely crucial, especially in our times, and is ironically rejected — wittingly or not — by a large majority of those who call themselves traditional Catholics, specifically by those who accept Francis and his five inglorious predecessors as true Popes but at the same time attempt to remain faithful to the religion of Pope Pius XII and the Popes before him.… READ MORE

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.… READ MORE

“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.… READ MORE

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.… READ MORE
