    Abortion in Argentina and FrancisComplicit silenceBUENOS AIRES (ChurchMilitant.com) - Just hours after the Feast of the Holy Innocents, the Argentine Congress approved one of the broadest abortion measures in the world.The new law in Pope Francis' native land establishes infanticide ("voluntary pregnancy interruption") as a right at any time during the first 14 weeks of growth, but largely allows the practice throughout all nine months of pregnancy if the "comprehensive health of the gestating person" is at stake. Abortion is thus allowed for girls as young as 14 — without parental consent. Health professionals, furthermore, who refuse to conduct abortions...

    Phony Synodality. It’s Just Francis In Charge, His Own WayThat Pope Francis exercises “absolute and unbridled power, arbitrary in the truest sense of the word,” is what now emerges both from an inventory of his acts as monarch of the little Vatican state - as in the previous post from Settimo Cielo - and from a political analysis of his exercise of power, as in the editorial by the historian Ernesto Galli della Loggia in the “Corriere della Sera” of last December 20.But in addition to the head of state there is also and above all Francis the pastor. Who...

    Pope Francis uses stronger words against violence at US Capitol than violence caused by Black Lives MatterJanuary 11, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Pope Francis stated in a recent interview that he was “very astonished” about recent scenes of political-driven conflict in the United States given the country is “such a disciplined people, a democracy, no?”The Pope, in an interview with Fabio Marchese Ragona of the Italian news program Tg5 — broadcast in Italy on Sunday evening — said that it is a “reality” that even in the “most advanced societies, there is always something wrong, something about people who take a...

    Confusion twice confounded: On the motu proprio Spiritus DominiThe underlying problem with this document is that it eviscerates the clear teaching of St. John Paul II in the post-synodal Apostolic Exhortation Christifideles Laici.Pope Francis’s latest motu proprio, Spiritus Domini, opens up the minor ministries of lector and acolyte to women. On the surface, this can look like much-ado-about nothing since females have been functioning as lectors and acolytes for decades now. Lord knows just about everyone has a grandmother who has been distributing Holy Communion for years on end.1However, there is much more that requires consideration here beyond persons performing...

    Pope Francis’s inclusion of ‘female ministries’ continues his pattern of ruptureIt is, one might say, another nail in the coffin of the Novus Ordo, detaching it still further from the patrimony of Latin-rite worship.I do not belong to that special class of people who claim to have known, the moment Jorge Mario Bergoglio stepped out on the loggia of St. Peter’s, that we were in for a terrible time. However, within the first year, there was already evidence that the cardinals had elected a modernist, a proponent of rupture, of liberation theology and socialism; and as the years went on,...

    Earthquake: Francis decrees women can occupy the former Minor Orders of Lector and Acolyte | Update: Full Text of Motu ProprioSwedish Lutheran female "bishops"Of course, for us Traditional Catholics, the Minor Orders never ceased to exist. And for good reason: the last major dogmatic Council, Trent, mentions all seven orders explicitly in the Canons and decrees related to Session XXIII.But after Vatican II, the new elites severed the minor orders (Acolyte, Exorcist, Lector, and Porter) and one of the Major Orders (the Subdiaconate) from the Diaconate and Presbyterate. They became mere functions that could be performed by laymen, though...

That meeting was to certify President-elect Joe Biden’s election victory.“Violence is always self-destructive,” Francis said. He appealed to a “high sense of responsibility” by leaders to “calm souls” to prevent further...

    Pope’s Epiphany Video Cancels EvangelismFaithful bishop reaffirms Jesus' uniqueness in response to Francis' error VATICAN CITY (ChurchMilitant.com) - Pope Francis launched a video promoting religious indifferentism on the eve of Epiphany — the feast on which the Church proclaims Jesus as the light of God's definitive revelation to people of all nations and religions. Faithful bishop Robert Mutsaerts anointing the holy altar Instead of a call to evangelize people of other religions, the pontiff is asking Catholics to unite in prayer as "brothers and sisters" with people worshipping other deities.In the video issued by the "Pope's Worldwide Prayer Network," Francis...

    The Pope’s Religious Indifferentism Isn’t Just Wrong, It’s Downright PuzzlingI’ve written before about the rather significant indications that Pope Francis is a religious indifferentist, and why that’s a bad thing. Regular readers will require no additional explanation.In fact, most of us are absolutely sick to death of talking about him. He’s bad, we know it, and there’s not much we can do about it. Many have taken to just ignoring him, and that’s probably for the best at this point.But there’s a new “pope video” out today, and aside from making me wonder why the heck it shows people of...

    The Vatican “gifts” Hong Kong to the Chinese RegimeThe next Archbishop of Hong Kong will be completely pro-China. We are talking about Msgr. Peter Choy, who has already been appointed even though the official announcement has been postponed: first, because of the awareness by the Vatican that this announcement will further fracture the church in Hong Kong, and now also because of the coronavirus crisis. The agreement between the Holy See and China – which remains secret even to this day – thus claims a new victim, the church in Hong Kong.After more than a year of waiting, the new...

    Episcopal Request for Civil Unions in Latvia Bishop Zbignevs Stankevics In Latvia, the episcopate has just asked the executive to grant legal status to homosexual “couples.” An astonishing statement that comes after recent remarks by Pope Francis on civil unions between people of the same sex.The Latvian episcopate did not take long to rush into the breach opened in the high walls of the Leonine enclosure by the documentary film screened in October 2020, previewed at the Rome Film Festival, organized by the Vatican.In this award-winning film, viewers were shocked to discover an interview in which the successor to...

    Screwtape Explains to ‘Chosen’ Cardinal How to Destroy the Church: From Demagogical Pauperism to the Dissolution of Dogma and TraditionA new ‘Screwtape Letter’ has come to light, and its contents are decidedly disturbing. It has originally been published by the journalist Aldo Maria Valli — ex-Vaticanist for the Italian RAI TV — on his blog “Duc in Altum” and further published by the Italian newspaper “Libero”. The writer remains anonymous, or rather: “His Most Powerful Abyssal Sublimity, the Under-Secretary Screwtape”, the senior demon who, in the homonymous tales of the great Christian exegete Clive Staples Lewis, instructs his nephew, the...

Did Cardinal Joseph Ratzinger (the future Pope Benedict XVI) say that Francis is a heretic? On June 3, 2003 the then Cardinal Ratzinger (and future Pope Benedict), head of the Congregation for the Faith, said that the endorsement of "homosex civil unions" was against Catholic teaching, that is heterodoxy: "Those who would move from tolerance to the legitimatization of specific rights for cohabiting homosexual persons need to be reminded that the approval or legalization of evil is something...

    Phrancis, Phisher of MenReaders might remember the “phishing” scheme that replaced telemarketing as the World’s Most Annoying Thing back in the aughts. The way the scam usually works is that a con artist sends out e-mails designed to look exactly like notifications from real banks, corporations, or government agencies. The e-mail asks the recipient—who believes he or she is communicating with a legitimate entity—to update passwords or provide other personal information. It’s a variety of the old bait-and-switch operation: an unsuspecting victim thinks one thing is going on, all above board and on the level, when in reality he or...
