Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our protection against the malice and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray; and do thou, O Prince of the Heavenly host, by the power of God, thrust into hell Satan and all evil spirits

  • "In some people we see an ostentatious preoccupation for the liturgy, for doctrine and for the Church’s prestige, but without any concern that the Gospel have a real impact on God’s faithful people and the concrete needs of the present time. In this way, the life of the Church turns into a museum piece or something which is the property of a select few."

  • "Non-Christians, by God’s gracious initiative, when they are faithful to their own consciences, can live “justified by the grace of God”,[199] and thus be “associated to the paschal mystery of Jesus Christ”

  • And another excerpt:

    "The other is the self-absorbed promethean neopelagianism of those who ultimately trust only in their own powers and feel superior to others because they observe certain rules or remain intransigently faithful to a particular Catholic style from the past. A supposed soundness of doctrine or discipline leads instead to a narcissistic and authoritarian elitism, whereby instead of evangelizing, one analyzes and classifies others, and instead of opening the door to grace, one exhausts his or her energies in inspecting and verifying. In neither case is one really concerned about Jesus Christ or others. These are manifestations of an anthropocentric immanentism. It is impossible to think that a genuine evangelizing thrust could emerge from these adulterated forms of Christianity."

  • This document is filled with modernist garbage, heresies and attacks on traditionalists. It's out for all to see now and nobody can deny it anymore.

    Look at this:

    "In her ongoing discernment, the Church can also come to see that certain customs not directly connected to the heart of the Gospel, even some which have deep historical roots, are no longer properly understood and appreciated. Some of these customs may be beautiful, but they no longer serve as means of communicating the Gospel. We should not be afraid to re-examine them. At the same time, the Church has rules or precepts which may have been quite effective in their time, but no longer have the same usefulness for directing and shaping people’s lives."

    "It is also true that at times greater emphasis is placed on the outward expressions and traditions of some groups, or on alleged private revelations which would replace all else, than on the impulse of Christian piety. There is a kind of Christianity made up of devotions reflecting an individual and sentimental faith life which does not in fact correspond to authentic “popular piety””

    Might one of those "groups" he mentions be the SSPX?

    Pray, people, that he converts to the One, True Faith of all time. Archbishop Lefebvre would be rolling in his grave looking at this pontificate. As time goes along, it becomes so much more obvious that what Our Lady of LaSalette said is true. Rome has lost the Faith. It's been lost.

    "Interreligious dialogue is a necessary condition for peace in the world, and so it is a duty for Christians as well as other religious communities."

    No, Holy Father, it is NOT a duty. It is YOUR duty to make sure that souls are saved and the world converts to the One, True Church. YOU allow them to wallow in their false religions and YOU pat them on the back and even worship with them. YOU will be held accountable for this. To whom much has been given much will be required. You've been given the greatest office on Heaven and Earth, that of Vicar of Christ. One day, you will have to wake up. YOU have to convert and likewise convert others, not to the sentimentality you preach but to the True Church.

    If Francis is means to imply "traditionalists" in this paragraph, there are many things that are incorrect. Without getting into his misunderstanding or misuse of the heresy of the Pelagians, his use of the  term "anthropocentric immanentism" is the very thing that defines a modernist, not one who holds to the Catholic faith.  A man centered religion based on emotions, experience and knowledge that comes from within is the opposite of what traditional Catholics practice.

    I have heard hundreds of sermons in person and know of traditional groups that have them aired online. The priests are reaching thousands of souls preaching the Gospel. I have personal knowledge of true Catholic groups and individual Catholics trying to convert souls by teaching the traditional catechism and doing spiritual and corporeal works of mercy as often as they are able and in fact, many make it their mission in life. How many of you have the same story? 

    And just what message is the New Church evangelizing?    "Luv?"

  • I skipped to the end and saw this and figured it's all I really needed to see:

    Quote from: Bergoglio
    I beg the Lord to grant us more politicians—


    Did he sign it "666", too?  :facepalm: Maybe this is TOO easy. He had a tweet today asking for suggestions how to pope better. For real. The responses are a bit humourous but mostly foul. So no link. I fear he got the response he wanted.
    The number of the elect is so small - so small - that were we to know how small it is, we should faint away with grief. The number of the elect is so small that were God to assemble them together, He would cry to them, as He did of old, by the mouth of Hi

  • Fr. Kramer had an interesting take on GE n. 247:





    Wow, Frank really went 180º from +Jesus with that the Jews' "covenant with God has never been revoked" comment. Got to give credit where it's due: Frank is DEFINITELY a new kind of Peter. Like, the opposite kind.

    Maybe I should read the thing after all, except I'm just so sure the Vatican will announce their error in transcribing the entire encyclical soon enough.  See, they probably gave the atheist the job to type it out from Frank's brain waves, and Scalfari's brain wave detector was probably on the blink, so he just remembered as best he could. And messed up. Again.

    Those derned atheists!

    That's overtly heretical.  Of course, a lot of Traditional Catholics believe this also.

    I hereby resign as the defense attorney for Francis.

    I've said OVER and OVER again that THE heresy of Vatican II is the denial of EENS, and yet most Traditional Catholics barely think any differently than the V2 modernists on the subject.

    He just said that you can be saved by following the natural lights of conscience, without supernatural faith and charity.  If that isn't Pelagianism, then nothing is.

    Most traditionalists say they believe in EENS while most V2 modernists admit they don't believe in EENS.

  • Most Traditionalists SAY they believe in EENS, with SAY being the operative word.

    At the end of the day, however, they interpret EENS the same way Bergoglio does and in this they share the same heresy that's at the root of all the Vatican II errors.

    They claim that non-Christians can be saved by following the lights of their consciences.  Archbishop Lefebvre, alas, proclaimed this same heresy in his "Against the Heresies".

    This is THE heresy of Antichrist.  St. John refers to Antichrist as "dissolving Christ".  So now Christ is present everywhere in almost a pantheistic way, whereas only Catholics used to be members of Christ.  Catholic Church used to be synonymous with the Christ's Body.  Now Christ is dissolved and diffused among all "people of good will" everywhere.

    Rome will lose the faith and become the seat of the Antichrist.  We're there.

    Most Traditionalists refuse to see this and are more concerned with whether you kneel or stand during certain parts of the Mass than with this CORE HERESY of our day.  There's outrage when SSPX wants to have people stand during the Sanctus.  They're more interested in how Bergoglio wore a clown nose or allowed tango at a mass than in the real heresy.  They're more interested in the proper dimensions of the lavabo cloth.

    What is the difference between this and the baptism of desire?
