Ratzinger writes Letter to Hans Küng

Benedict XVI delights in “Great Agreement of Views” with Francis

UPDATE 2/26/14: Benedict Confirms Accuracy of Hans Kung Testimony (click here)

Bad news for Resignationists and all those who believe that “Pope Emeritus” Benedict XVI is gravely at odds with his offbeat successor, Jorge Bergoglio. The Italian newspaper La Repubblica reports that in a Jan. 24, 2014 letter Joseph Ratzinger wrote to his former colleague and collaborator Hans Kung, he expressed his satisfaction to be united to “Pope” Francis not only by a “cordial friendship” but also — and this is clearly much more important — by a shared concurrence of points-of-view:

“I am grateful to be joined to Pope Francis by a great agreement of views and a cordial friendship”, the retired Benedict wrote to arch-apostate Hans Kung, who basically denies every Catholic dogma in the book, including that of the Most Holy Trinity, and who announced in 2013 that he is considering committing suicide as he is now advanced in years and suffers from Parkinson’s Disease and doesn’t really see the point of sticking around.

Francis: Traditional Latin Mass just a “Fad” that “doesn’t need much Attention”

It’s just a “fad”, folks…

By way of the Rorate Caeli blog, news is reaching us today of something the “Holy Father” reportedly said Feb. 14, 2014, in an audience with the Novus Ordo bishops of the Czech Republic. The “Archbishop” of Olomouc, Mr. Jan Graubner, relates the following:

When we were discussing those who are fond of the ancient liturgy and wish to return to it, it was evident that the Pope speaks with great affection, attention, and sensitivity for all in order not to hurt anyone.

Radio Maria Fires Roberto de Mattei

The “culture of dialogue and encounter” promoted by Antipope Francis doesn’t apply to everyone, apparently. After ridding themselves of Mario Palmaro and Alessandro Gnocchi in 2013Radio Maria has now also fired the Novus Ordo historian Prof. Roberto de Mattei, who hosted a monthly show for the “Catholic” Italian radio network.

In a letter that was very polite and gracious in tone, Radio Maria‘s program director “Fr.” Livio Fanzaga tells Prof. de Mattei that he can no longer in good conscience retain him as a show host for as long as he criticizes and does not support Francis’ “pastoral program”, and that for this reason his show has been canceled.

CDF Prefect Müller says “Door Still Open” for SSPX to rejoin Rome

door-to-hell.jpg

 

The prefect of the Vatican’s Congregation for the Destruction of the Faith, the German “Archbishop” Gerhard Ludwig Müller, has quite a sense of humor. After 11 months of chaos under Jorge Bergoglio, he is reminding the traditionalist Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) that the “door is still open” for them to officially rejoin the Vatican II Sect (which the SSPX believes to be the Catholic Church). The Rorate Caeli blog put up a translation of the relevant excerpt of an Austrian news magazine’s interview with Archheretic Muller:

[T]he prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith maintains that a reconciliation with the Society of Saint Pius X is possible.

Resignationism hitting the mainstream…

Italian Journalist Antonio Socci:
Ratzinger Resignation “May Not Be Valid”

Author and Journalist Antonio Socci

One year after Benedict XVI’s historic announcement of his impending resignation from the “papacy”, well-respected Italian journalist and author Antonio Socci reflects on what led Fr. Joseph Ratzinger to give up his claim to the papal office on February 28, 2013.

Writing for the Italian daily Libero on Feb. 12, 2014, Socci says that details about the resignation have emerged that may render it invalid under church law. (Both Novus Ordo and traditional Catholic canon law state that, among other possible reasons, resignation obtained through fear unjustly inflicted is invalid; see Novus Ordo Canon 188Catholic Canon 185.)

The Vicar of Snark

Francis has definitely changed the tone in the Vatican…

[From The Week, U.S. Edition]

Pope Francis, Insult Comic

Hailed for striking a gentler tone, the pope is actually the vicar of snark

by Michael Brendan Dougherty

The pope’s favorite American prelate, Cardinal Sean O’Malley of Boston, opined this week on the character of the church’s biggest celebrity. According to O’Malley, Pope Francis isn’t about to launch a revolution in the church, he’s just changing the tone.

O’Malley said the shift in emphasis is necessary because the church has been in the past “too strident, maybe too repetitious.”

Bergoglio’s Rocker: Buenos Aires Rocker “Priest” has Endorsement from “Pope” Francis

Cesar Scicchitano is the name of a 49-year-old Argentinian Novus Ordo priest who is the frontman of the heavy-metal band Los Pecadores (“The Sinners”). While such is by no means an unusual occurrence in Novus Ordo Land, this one comes with an added twist: “Father” Cesar’s undertaking has the explicit blessing of Jorge Bergoglio, the man otherwise known as “Pope Francis.” And that’s just the beginning.

According to a report published by the The China Post, Scicchitano has been friends with Francis for nearly twenty years.

Video of Interreligious Prayer Gathering in Assisi 1986

“Saint” John Paul the Great… Apostate!

The above video clip shows more of the “saintly” deeds of the apostate bishop Karol Wojtyla, best known under his pseudonym “Pope John Paul II”. This is the man the current usurper in Rome, “Pope” Francis, will “canonize” as a “Catholic Saint” on April 27 of this year.

The 1986 Assisi Interreligious Prayer for Peace gathering was one of the most outrageous acts of blasphemy ever committed by the Vatican II Sect, in a Catholic holy place! A whole book could be written about the event and how diametrically opposed it is to traditional Catholic teaching, but in this blog post we can only touch upon some select points.

Bp. Williamson and Sedevacantism

A Response to Bp. Richard Williamson’s Arguments
against Sedevacantism in his Eleison Comments of 2014
(Part 1)

On Jan. 25, 2014, Bp. Richard Williamson, formerly with the Society of St. Pius X, released issue no. 341 of his Eleison Comments, which are sent out on a weekly basis to subscribers by email. In this particular installment, His Excellency once again returns to the topic of sedevacantism. He writes:

The words and deeds of Pope Francis since his election earlier last year have been so little Catholic and so outrageous, that the idea that recent popes have not really been Popes (”sedevacantism”) has been given a new lease of life.

There’s Your New Evangelization: Vatican Translator dies a Lutheran because “Cardinal” Ratzinger had told her NOT to Convert

[UPDATE 2/6/14: Accuracy of story confirmed – Spath herself was source of this information]

This past Sunday, Feb. 2, 2014, a lady by the name of Sigrid Spath passed away in Rome. Austrian by birth, Spath had worked for the Vatican as a translator of official church documents since the time of Paul VI. She translated Italian, Latin, French, English, Spanish, and Polish texts into German.

Now that she has passed, Vatican Radio has released a brief article on her life and work, and it contains a veritable bombshell.

Two-Faced Francis:
The Contradictions of Jorge Bergoglio


Francis is clearly the most blatant Modernist of all the Novus Ordo Antipopes. He perfectly embodies the spirit of Vatican II and is the veritable incarnation, as it were, of the conciliar document Gaudium Et Spes. Like the Modernists and other innovators condemned by the Church, his chief characteristics include audacity and love of novelty. The following two passages taken from magisterial documents are very applicable to the entire frame of mind advanced by the Second Vatican Council and embodied fully by Jorge Bergoglio:

As for the rest, We greatly deplore the fact that, where the ravings of human reason extend, there is somebody who studies new things and strives to know more than is necessary, against the advice of the apostle.

Vatican Lauds ‘SuperFrank’!

The Associated Press reported on Jan. 28, 2014:

It wasn’t enough that Pope Francis was named Time magazine’s Person of the Year – or that he fronted this week’s Rolling Stone magazine. Now there’s SuperPope graffiti sprouting up around the Vatican.

The white caped crusader appeared on a wall just off Borgo Pio, a tiny cobble-stoned street near St Peter’s Square. In typical superhero fashion, Francis’ right fist is thrust in the air, leading him in flight, while his left clutches his black satchel. “Valores,” or values in Spanish, is written across it.

The Apostasy Advances:
“Cardinal” Tauran at Hindu Temple

[We are indebted to Tradition in Action for this story.]

The apostasy of the Vatican II Sect advances with ever greater and more alarming speed. “Cardinal” Jean-Louis Pierre Tauran is the current President of the so-called Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, having been appointed to this post by “Pope” Benedict XVI in 2007. He is incidentally also the very same individual who introduced Jorge Bergoglio as “Pope Francis” to the world on that fateful day of March 13, 2013.

On June 13, 2013, “His Eminence” visited a Hindu temple in London, where he paid homage and gave credence to the false religion of Hinduism and its idols.

Francis’ Peace Doves get Attacked

[Vatican City, Jan. 26, 2014] The ‘Francis Show’ suffered a slight setback today as the Argentinian Antipope called for peace in the Ukraine at his Sunday Angelus address. After the traditional white peace doves were released (incidentally, by two children standing at Francis’ side), both of them were attacked by a seagull and a crow, right there in front of the Apostolic Palace in the Vatican. If the doves were to be a symbol of peace, perhaps this attack by the other birds has symbolic value also.
