Vatican Sources: Universal Approval of 1962 Missal could be underway
No surprise there... as Fr. Carl Pulvermacher, OFM Cap, once said, "Once there are no more valid priests, they'll permit the Latin Mass."

Absolutely Null and Utterly Void [PDF File]

Earlier this year the SSPX's Angelus Magazine published a two-part article attempting to prove the validity of the 1968 rite of episcopal consecration. This theological study proves the opposite. The consequences: Benedict XVI and the rest of his modernist hierarchy are not real bishops, and ordinations conferred in "indult" organizations are invalid. Examines the criteria for validity, Eastern Rite formulas, ancient Christian texts, early doubts about validity, 'governing Spirit' vs. 'fullness of the priesthood,' substantial change, arguments from context, papal approval. Extensive bibliography.

"There can be nothing more dangerous than those heretics who admit nearly the whole cycle of doctrine, and yet by one word, as with a drop of poison, infect the real and simple faith taught by our Lord and handed down by Apostolic tradition" --qtd. by Pope Leo XIII, Encyclical Satis Cognitum, par. 9, 1896

Benedict XVI calls for Conversion of Jews?
Don't be deceived:
"[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.... 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." --Pope Pius VI, Apostolic Constitution Auctorem Fidei, 1794

Due to certain false rumors circulating on the internet, Novus Ordo Watch would like to repeat its call for any SSPX cleric (doesn't matter who -- whether inclined to reconcile with Benedict XVI or not) to contact Novus Ordo Watch for a cross-examination on precisely what the SSPX believes about their own status and the status of Benedict XVI. We keep hearing it's a new religion in Rome, but somehow the man responsible for the whole new religion is still a Catholic. We need some clarification, please.

Benedict's Dream:
Cooperation among All Three Monotheistic Religions

Benedict claims that because all three religions claim to believe in one God who made heaven and earth, therefore it follows that they must cooperate with one another for "justice and peace in the world." How that follows is anyone's guess. Whatever religion he's preaching here, it certainly isn't the Catholic religion, whose teaching it is that the Social Kingship of Christ ought to be established in every society, that society ought to be Catholic, and that the sites, shrines, and symbols of the other religions are not holy, that their teachings and laws lead to damnation instead of salvation. Fr. Ratzinger knows this. What we're seeing here is a deliberate and well-calculated attempt to usher in a new religion, whose purpose it is to unite all "men of faith", no matter what their religious beliefs, in a "peaceful" society in order to serve man and human needs. The true God, truth, holiness, true peace, and Catholic morality will have no place in it. Rather, it will be founded on the freemasonic ideals of equality, liberty, and fraternity. Real Catholics will eventually be considered "radical extremists" who are a "threat" to society because they believe non-Catholics are in need of conversion to be saved, a "crime" that infringes on their "human dignity." Can't we all see that that's where we're going? In short, Benedict's dream is a Catholic's nightmare.

Benedict says Christians must Evangelize
Well, then, when will he start evangelizing Protestants, Jews, Muslims, and Pagans? In 2005, he wasted no time going into a Jewish Synagogue to tell the unbelieving Jews that meeting Christ was really meeting Judaism (see for yourself here). The only other thing he said about Christ was that He doesn't tolerate religious discrimination (very funny -- as though Christ didn't distinguish between sheep and goats, between His followers and those who stubbornly refused to believe).

"High Mass"?

SSPX Update - Bishop Fellay Speaks:
Somewhat optimistic about Reconciliation with Rome, claims he believes in Benedict's (purported) Supremacy
Let's see if we can find one Catholic Saint who doubted the Pope's canonizations, sat in judgment on his universal disciplinary laws, set up his own annulment tribunals in opposition to the Holy See, filtered the Pope's teachings, and opposed his promulgated sacramental rites. By the way, Novus Ordo Watch is still waiting for any SSPX priest to initiate contact for an interview on their status with Rome and their theological position.

Group to Honor John Paul II for Allowing Traditional Mass ('62 Version)
Reality Check:
John Paul II was no friend of the true Mass. Traditionalists, he said, "unfortunately have turned back in a one-sided and exclusive way to the previous liturgical forms which some of them consider to be the sole guarantee of certainty in faith." --John Paul II, Vicesimus Quintus Annus, 1988

Benedict "enthusiastic" about Perpetual Eucharistic Adoration
Reality Check:
Don't be deceived on this one. Here's what Fr. Ratzinger said in 1965:
"Eucharistic adoration or quiet visiting in church can, reasonably, not simply be thought of as conversation with the God who is thought present in a locally-circumscriptive manner. Statements such as 'God lives here' and conversation with the locally-thought God based on such thinking express a misjudgment of the christological event as well as the idea of God, which necessarily repels the thinking man who knows about the omnipresence of God. If one were to justify going to church on the grounds that one must visit the God who is only present there, this would indeed be a justification which would make no sense and would rightfully be rejected by modern man. Eucharistic adoration is in truth related to the Lord, who, through his historical life and suffering, has become 'bread' for us, that is, who through his Incarnation and abandonment unto death has become the one who is open for us." --Fr. Joseph Ratzinger, The Sacramental Foundation of Christian Existence, excerpted in English here
Got it? No doubt, such modernistic drivel had nothing to do with a decline in Eucharistic Adoration after Vatican II, huh?
Contrast that with serious Catholic spirituality: "It is this love that keeps Me a prisoner in the tabernacle. For nearly twenty centuries I have dwelt there, night and day, veiled under the species of Bread and concealed in the small white Host, bearing through love, neglect, solitude, contempt, blasphemies, outrages, sacrileges..." --the Lord Jesus Christ to Sr. Josefa Menendez

Contrast that with a truly Catholic Perspective from a Canonized Saint:
"After their baptism the new Christians go back to their houses and bring me their wives and families for baptism. When all are baptized I order all the temples of their false gods to be destroyed and all the idols to be broken in pieces. I can give you no idea of the joy I feel in seeing this done, witnessing the destruction of the idols by the very people who but lately adored them." --St. Francis Xavier

If Rome has embraced a new religion, then Benedict XVI is not a legitimate occupant of the Holy See!

Regarding those Dolls used at the Austrian "Rock Mass"--
Novus Ordo Watch did some research on these scary dolls that were used at an Austrian Novus Ordo youth "rock mass" -- and discovered some disturbing facts: (1) the dolls are called Sorgenpüppchen, German for "little worry dolls"; (2) they come from Guatemala and look like this (!!); (3) their history is based on a Pagan Guatemalan myth about a princess to whom a sun god gave the ability to take away people's worries and cares. This princess (her name is Ixmucane) then handed on this gift to representatives (the dolls, presumably). People are supposed to tell their worries to those dolls at night and put them under their pillow. The next morning, those cares are supposed to be gone. (source) So, what are such Pagan-New Age dolls doing at a "Catholic Mass"? The use of those dolls was no accident -- they were specifically imported from Guatemala for that "Mass" and come from Pop Atz'iaq. They are very popular in Austria, as they are said to have this "magic power" to take away cares and worries. What we see going on at that "rock mass", then, is extremely wicked and idolatrous.

SSPX in Schism or Not, according to Rome?
Vatican Officials apparently can't make up their Mind

It seems they have been flip-flopping on this for quite a while. In 1988, John Paul II stated: "Formal adherence to the schism is a grave offence against God and carries the penalty of excommunication decreed by the Church's law" (Ecclesia Dei) -- which obviously includes SSPX priests. Now, curiously, in a 1988 letter to "Cardinal" Gantin, a number of SSPX priests and district superiors wrote: "we ask for nothing better than to be declared outside of this impious communion of the ungodly" (see Archbishop Lefebvre and the Vatican, p. 136 and p. 137). This is part of the problem with the SSPX. They themselves don't really know where they stand or what they want. Do they even want communion with Benedict XVI? At times they say they don't; at other times they say they already have it -- it's a madhouse! SSPX priests are encouraged to e-mail Novus Ordo Watch for an interview about their status and theological position.

"No Rupture with the Past" Update:
Flashback '88: John Paul II admits Vatican II teaches New Doctrine:

"Indeed, the extent and depth of the teaching of the Second Vatican Council call for a renewed commitment to deeper study in order to reveal clearly the Council's continuity with Tradition, especially in points of doctrine which, perhaps because they are new, have not yet been well understood by some sections of the Church" --John Paul II, Motu Proprio Ecclesia Dei, July 2, 1988

State of the New Church - Case in Point:
"Eucharistic Minister" testifies: "Back when Catholics used to believe these hosts were actually Jesus’ body, nobody but the priest would be allowed to touch them." -No kidding!
