    [Catholic Caucus] Pope Francis Talks Nonsense Pope Francis has spoken openly about the agenda he has brought to the papacy. He credits it as the game plan of certain cardinals, claiming he’s only doing what they wanted. But he certainly cannot be speaking about all the cardinals who were present at the 2013 conclave. He is a foresworn agent of the Sankt Gallen mafia. The evidence is overwhelming. Simply read the eponymous book by Julia Meloni where all the connections are demonstrated by what is, mostly, publicly available evidence. The cardinals who have for years worked to undermine Christ have...

The first was the October 2010 sub-title: "Weapon of Mass Destruction: Missa bugniniensis delenda est"(Buginini’s Mass must be destroyed). Those were the days when the Novus Ordo had a monopoly on the WMD moniker —...

    [Catholic Caucus] Rome, We Have a ProblemIf ever there were an emergency message to Rome, this is it. It might have been the SOS a year ago as some bishops witnessed large numbers of other bishops using their pastoral canonical privilege to bypass the iron-fisted prescriptions of Traditionis Custodes. But it is certainly the frightened alert in light of the Extraordinary Form Mass held at the U.S. Capitol last Tuesday. It was a Jericho-Walls-crumbling moment. This time it was not Jewish priests and Israelites circling the city and blowing their horns but Catholics worldwide storming Heaven. Or, a parallel more...

In Paris, no mass at Notre-Dame du Tavail, where it would be so easy to re-establish it, neither is there any perspective of masses elsewhere in the south of the capital...

    [Catholic Caucus] “Francis wants to erase Benedict XVI’s legacy”—Explosive interview with Peter SeewaldThe following interview was conducted by Nico Spuntoni for The Daily Compass (here). NS: Is it fair to say that the relationship between Benedict XVI and Francis was “very close”, as Francis recently declared? PS: Good question. We all remember the warm words that Cardinal Ratzinger spoke at the requiem for John Paul II. Words that touched the heart, that spoke of Christian love, of respect. But no one remembers Bergoglio’s words at the requiem for Benedict XVI. They were as cold as the whole ceremony, which had...

    [Catholic Caucus] When “Inclusive Accompaniment” Means Police BrutalityProbably everyone reading this knows by now that Pope Francis has been very tough on Bishop Joseph Strickland of Tyler, Texas, removing him from his see without due canonical process. The main reason, it seems, is that Strickland has outspokenly criticized the constant stream of doctrinal and disciplinary novelties that have marked the present pontificate. And if you read on, you’ll see here that this intolerant crackdown is now extending even to the bishop’s supporters.Is there a touch of paranoia here? The incident described below I think reveals the depth of the enmity...

Murray’s recent analysis of the Strickland case. Father Gerald Murray has excellently analyzed the canonical side of Bp. Strickland’s removal. He has demonstrated that the guarantee of due process has been violated. Canon 196 and other related canons were masterfully explained. I myself published a different article that I wrote before having read Father Murray’s analysis. I saw...

Joseph Strickland as Bishop of Tyler, Texas, represented a particularly unjust exercise of authority against a faithful and conscientious Church leader.“This will go down in history as a great injustice against a bishop who did only his task in a time of confusion,” said Bishop Schneider in an exclusive interview with the Catholic Herald in Cambridge.“Now it is silenced, this voice,” the bishop said. “That...
