37 Anonymous French SSPX Priests Send
Scathing Rebuke to Bp. Fellay:


"You have the duty in justice to tell the truth, to repair the lies and to retract the errors" [PDF]

(New, Formal Translation Released; click above)

That's All, Folks...



As of 8:00 pm CET, Feb. 28, 2013, it is sede vacante in the Novus Ordo Church -- Fr. Joseph Ratzinger has stepped down, has ceased claiming the title of Pope after almost eight years.

Reality Check:

Fatima Connection?
Same Old Junk from The Remnant...

This episode of "The Remnant Underground" by Mr. Michael Matt is nothing more than an agenda-driven twisting of the facts. The Remnant desperately wants to believe in - and push - a Benedict XVI who is a friend and supporter of Fatima and the True Faith and the True Mass, so they use half-truths to paint a picture of Benedict XVI they want you to believe in. The objective facts, however, tell quite a different story. See for yourself:

Lies and Half-Truths vs. Reality

  • Matt claims: Benedict XVI agrees with Traditional Catholics that the Traditional Mass was never abrogated
    Truth: Yes, Benedict did say this, but it was a lie: In truth the Traditional Mass was suppressed, which is why you needed an "indult" to be allowed to offer it (see How Benedict Destroys the Traditional Mass)
  • Matt claims: Benedict XVI changed "For All" to "For Many" in the New Mass because he agrees that to say "For All" is a lie
    Truth: While Benedict did change "For All" ("Pro Omnibus") back to "For Many" ("Pro Multis"), he did not concede that "For All" is wrong but that it is an "interpretation" rather than a pure translation, which, however, "was and remains very reasonable" - he does not abandon the conciliar theology behind "For All": See Benedict's own ridiculous explanation here and compare it to the reason given by the Roman Catechism (1566) for rejecting "For All": "With reason, therefore, were the words 'for all' not used, as in this place the fruits of the Passion are alone spoken of, and to the elect only did His Passion bring the fruit of salvation" (source)
  • Matt claims: Benedict, through his example, shows he wants Communion in the Hand to be done away with
    Truth: This is a lie. Benedict did not shy away from giving "Communion" in the Hand at all (see here), and besides, he could have simply outlawed it
  • Matt claims: Everything Benedict does he seems to do in the light of Fatima
    Truth: Benedict XVI is not a Friend of Fatima (proof here)

Why, Mr. Matt, are you trying to make the facts fit your agenda, rather than giving your readers the truth and embrace the conclusion that naturally follows?

Once again the saintly Fr. Faber comes to mind: The "deceitfulness [of the work of the Antichrist] arises from good men being on the wrong side" (full quote below). Simply having good intentions isn't enough. The Remnant has once again shown itself to be a Neo-Traditionalist organ of the blind leading the blind.

Vatican clarifies Fr. Ratzinger's Title as of March 1:

"His Holiness Benedict XVI, Pope-Emeritus"

So, as of some time in March, the Novus Ordo Church will have two people in the Vatican wearing white, being addressed as "Your Holiness" - and yet neither of them will actually be the Pope! --This scenario brought to you by the Modernist Vatican II Sect...

Meanwhile, the Neo-Trads at The Remnant are wondering out loud: Is the post-Feb-28 Benedict XVI the Bishop 'Dressed in White'? Well, sure would help if he were a valid bishop, wouldn't it!? (See: Why Benedict XVI is not a Valid Bishop) Not following genuine Roman Catholic theological principles - perhaps because they lead to unpopular, inconvenient, or undesirable conclusions - is a sure way to be misled and end up in serious error. As Fr. Frederick Faber said: The "deceitfulness [of the work of the Antichrist] arises from good men being on the wrong side" (full quote below).

Novus Ordo Watch Presents

First-Ever Complete English Translation on the Internet

Letter from the Holy Office under Pope Pius IX
condemning Ecumenism
and affirming True Christian Unity

"Ad Quosdam Puseistas Anglicos"
"To Certain Puseyite Anglicans"

November 8, 1865


The binding force of this instruction from the Holy Office, eminently relevant in our difficult times, was reaffirmed by the same Holy Office in 1919, under Pope Benedict XV, and in 1927, under Pope Pius XI.


  • "take care lest, while seeking unity, you turn yourselves aside from the way"
  • "sorry that you happened to think those Christian groups that boast of having the inheritance of the priesthood and the catholic name belong to the true Church of Jesus Christ, even though they are divided and separated from Peter"
  • "what sane person will persuade himself that error can underlie the Church’s public and solemn magisterium"
  • "no one is in the Catholic Church who does not cling to that Rock, on which the foundation of Catholic unity has been set"
  • "all groups entirely separated from external and visible communion with and obedience to the Roman Pontiff cannot be the Church of Christ, nor in any way whatsoever can they belong to the Church of Christ"


Put on Your Surprise Face:

Canadian Novus Ordo Priest picked for English Vatican Press Office Conclave Reporting utters Heresy, says Pope is mere "Figurehead", "First Among Equals"

Actually, this "Fr." Thomas Rosica is simply repeating Ratzinger doctrine, as Joseph Ratzinger himself explicitly denies the dogma of Papal Primacy in his 1982 book Principles of Catholic Theology (a work that contains neither principles nor Catholic theology, by the way): SEE HERE.

Reality Check:

  • "If anyone thus speaks, that the Roman Pontiff has only the office of inspection or direction, but not the full and supreme power of jurisdiction over the universal Church, not only in things which pertain to faith and morals, but also in those which pertain to the discipline and government of the Church spread over the whole world; or, that he possesses only the more important parts, but not the whole plenitude of this supreme power; or that this power of his is not ordinary and immediate, or over the churches altogether and individually, and over the pastors and the faithful altogether and individually: let him be anathema." --First Vatican Council, Dogmatic Constitution Pastor Aeternus (1870); Denz. 1831
  • "[Papal authority] is a real binding authority which demands as its correlative effect a duty, not simply of reverence, but of obedience in the strict sense of the term. The primacy, then, is worlds apart from any mere function of a presiding officer over his associates or confreres. Such an officer is merely an equal among equals and has primacy over the others only insofar as he directs the order to be followed in debating, voting, etc. Neither is the primacy of the pope simply an office of direction, for the notion of direction connotes counsel and persuasion rather than the exercise of genuine authority." --Mgr. Gerardus Van Noort, Dogmatic Theology II: Christ's Church (Westminster, MD: The Newman Press, 1957), p. 280

'Cap & Trade', Novus Ordo Style:
At Synagogue Speech, "Cardinal" Dolan Swaps Skull Caps with Bar-Mitzvah Boy

And who will preach the Gospel to this dear young man? Is his soul not precious also? Did Christ not shed His Blood for him as well?

Reality Check:

  • "For the scripture saith: Whosoever believeth in him, shall not be confounded. For there is no distinction of the Jew and the Greek: for the same is Lord over all, rich unto all that call upon him. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord, shall be saved. How then shall they call on him, in whom they have not believed? Or how shall they believe him, of whom they have not heard? And how shall they hear, without a preacher?" (Romans 10:11-14)
  • "But without faith it is impossible to please God." (Hebrews 11:6)
  • "He that believeth and is baptized, shall be saved: but he that believeth not shall be condemned." (Mark 16:16)

A Heretic Leads the Vatican's Office of "Orthodoxy":

A Prefect for the Destruction of the Faith:


The CDF's Archheretic Gehard L. Mueller

"Archbishop" Gerhard Ludwig Müller Denies the Dogma of Transubstantiation in 2002 Book on the Mass

Reality Check:

"[The Ancient Doctors] knew the capacity of innovators in the art of deception. In order not to shock the ears of Catholics, they sought to hide the subtleties of their tortuous maneuvers by the use of seemingly innocuous words such as would allow them to insinuate error into souls in the most gentle manner. Once the truth had been compromised, they could, by means of slight changes or additions in phraseology, distort the confession of the faith which is necessary for our salvation, and lead the faithful by subtle errors to their eternal damnation. This manner of dissimulating and lying is vicious, regardless of the circumstances under which it is used. For very good reasons it can never be tolerated in a synod of which the principal glory consists above all in teaching the truth with clarity and excluding all danger of error.

"Morever, if all this is sinful, it cannot be excused in the way that one sees it being done, under the erroneous pretext that the seemingly shocking affirmations in one place are further developed along orthodox lines in other places, and even in yet other places corrected; as if allowing for the possibility of either affirming or denying the statement, or of leaving it up the personal inclinations of the individual – such has always been the fraudulent and daring method used by innovators to establish error. It allows for both the possibility of promoting error and of excusing it.

"It is as if the innovators pretended that they always intended to present the alternative passages, especially to those of simple faith who eventually come to know only some part of the conclusions of such discussions which are published in the common language for everyone's use. Or again, as if the same faithful had the ability on examining such documents to judge such matters for themselves without getting confused and avoiding all risk of error. It is a most reprehensible technique for the insinuation of doctrinal errors and one condemned long ago by our predecessor Saint Celestine who found it used in the writings of Nestorius, Bishop of Constantinople, and which he exposed in order to condemn it with the greatest possible severity. Once these texts were examined carefully, the impostor was exposed and confounded, for he expressed himself in a plethora of words, mixing true things with others that were obscure; mixing at times one with the other in such a way that he was also able to confess those things which were denied while at the same time possessing a basis for denying those very sentences which he confessed.

"In order to expose such snares, something which becomes necessary with a certain frequency in every century, no other method is required than the following: Whenever it becomes necessary to expose statements which disguise some suspected error or danger under the veil of ambiguity, one must denounce the perverse meaning under which the error opposed to Catholic truth is camouflaged."

--Pope Pius VI, Apostolic Constitution Auctorem Fidei (1794)

A Timely Reminder from 1861:

Fr. Frederick W. Faber

"We must remember that if all the manifestly good men were on one side and all the manifestly bad men on the other, there would be no danger of anyone, least of all the elect, being deceived by lying wonders. It is the good men, good once, we must hope good still, who are to do the work of Anti-Christ and so sadly to crucify the Lord afresh…. Bear in mind this feature of the last days, that this deceitfulness arises from good men being on the wrong side."

--Fr. Frederick Faber, Sermon for Pentecost Sunday, 1861; qtd. in Fr. Denis Fahey, The Mystical Body of Christ in the Modern World (text here)

The Curious Handshakes of Benedict XVI

This video gives convincing proof that Fr. Joseph Ratzinger, the false "Pope" Benedict XVI, routinely uses Masonic handshakes when meeting certain high-profile individuals, while shaking hands normally with others. Though the creator of this video is an anti-Catholic Protestant (and therefore does not believe Benedict XVI to be an Antipope of the False Pseudo-Catholic Church but the true Pope of the Roman Catholic Church), this is not relevant to the evidence he gives. The true Catholic Church has long condemned Freemasonry and forbidden Catholics from joining the Masons. This attitude did not change until the death of the last known true Pope, Pius XII (1958), after whom the first of the current Antipopes, John XXIII, took over and began the Masonic revolution with the Second Vatican Council.

Reality Check:

  • "Whatever the future may be, in this grave and widespread evil it is Our duty ... to endeavor to find a remedy. And because We know that Our best and firmest hope of a remedy is in the power of that divine religion which the Freemasons hate in proportion to their fear of it, We think it to be of chief importance to call that most saving power to Our aid against the common enemy. Therefore, whatsoever the Roman Pontiffs Our predecessors have decreed for the purpose of opposing the undertakings and endeavors of the masonic sect, and whatsoever they have enacted to enter or withdraw men from societies of this kind, We ratify and confirm it all by our apostolic authority: and trusting greatly to the good will of Christians, We pray and beseech each one, for the sake of his eternal salvation, to be most conscientiously careful not in the least to depart from what the apostolic see has commanded in this matter." --Pope Leo XIII, Encyclical Humanum Genus (1884), par. 30
  • "On December 8, 1869, the International Congress of Freemasons imposed it as a duty on all its members to do all in their power to wipe out Catholicity from the face of the earth. Cremation was proposed as a suitable means to this end, since it was calculated to gradually undermine the faith of the people in 'the resurrection of the body and life everlasting.'" --Fr. John Laux, Catholic Morality (1932), p. 106

Is Physical Blindness now following the Spiritual Blindness?

'Ratzinger Appears to Have Gone Blind in Left Eye'

Considering the full photo from which the above picture is taken, it appears that Benedict XVI is looking to the right, but only his right eye is moving, while his left eye is looking straight ahead. 

Look at who might be the New Church's Next "Pope":

Video: "Cardinal" Christoph Schönborn
at Diocesan "Youth Mass" in 2008

Yes, this is a clip from one of the notorious "Find-Fight-Follow" Youth "Masses" in the "Archdiocese" of Vienna, Austria. By the grace of God, this abominable desecration of Austria's churches was ended after eight years, in 2011, reportedly due to a lack of funds. During this time, these officially-approved "youth masses" have featured everything from a "cardinal" sending text messages during "Mass," to psychedelic vestments, role plays, stage diving, superstitious "care dolls," throwing paper planes, pornography displayed during a sermon, rock music, disco lights, artificial smoke, flame throwers, balloons, and exceptionally provocative, ambiguous, and blasphemous event theme titles (such as "Topless," "The Spirit is Sexy," and "Take It All Off").


What? You don't have stage diving at your Mass?!

Reality Check:

  • His Wickedness, "Cardinal" Schoenborn, is not only a former student and confidant of Joseph Ratzinger but also the editor-in-chief of the 1992 so-called "Catechism of the Catholic Church" [see Wikipedia article with sources here]
