Don't fall for it -
we kind of
predicted this a year ago.
This is just more adornment of the
pig -- from lipstick to choir robes:
"Pope" starts the Chant: 'Stop the
Pop Music "Masses"'
"Pope Benedict has called for an end
to electric guitars and modern music
being played in church and has
demanded a return to traditional
choirs and Gregorian chants." (This
is poisoned pablum that Ratzinger
sets out to entice those gullible,
weepy-eyed neo-traditionalists who
one moment rail at "Ratzinger, the
suit-and-tie progressive" and in the
next fall all over themselves
tearfully praising "Benedict, the
restorer." Such unstable people are
always ripe for the picking by
skilled con artists such as the one
who now illegitimately occupies the
papal throne. But to fall for this
ruse they must first accept the lie
that there is nothing intrinsically
wrong with the "new Mass"--once they
fall for that one, everything else
All in the
"Papal Nuncio" gives "Communion"
to John Kerry
Pro-abortion Senator John Kerry
(D-MA, left midground, the
darling of baby killers
everywhere, receives Novus Ordo
"communion" at the installation
of "Archbishop" Donald Wuerl
(center foreground) as head of
the pseudo-Catholic church for
Washington, DC. Doing the
"honors" for Kerry is none other
than "Archbishop" Pietro Sambi
(right), who passes as
the United States "papal nuncio"
for Benedict XVI. (Fr. Sambi, as
befits his service for Rabbi
Ratzinger, formerly held the
same post in Israel.) The spin
doctors at Fr. Sambi's office
were quick to label
the occurrence a "mistake," a
claim readily accepted
by conservative Novus Ordo
types, yet this official version
still leaves an unsavory
either-or situation to be
reckoned with: Either "Abp."
Sambi was unfamiliar
with those on the installation
guest list who were or weren't
eligible to receive the "host"
and hence was morally obliged
to defer to "Abp." Wuerl
or another Conciliar cleric
present who did
know Kerry, thus placing the
onus on someone else, someone
qualified to make such a call
(at least from the standpoint of
knowing the reputation of the
man seeking "communion" was that
of a public sinner), or Sambi,
having held his post in
Washington since Dec. 2005,
was familiar with Kerry and
elected to administer the
"sacrament" anyway. A third
possibility was that he simply
didn't care who was
getting "communion," which is
not an uncommon policy in the
Novus Ordo (if a person comes
up, he must have a "need"). Of
course, none of this would be an
issue if real and decent
members of the Roman Catholic
hierarchy had been involved,
because John Kerry would long
ago have been excommunicated and
they wouldn't dare to
participate in his sacrilege by
administering to him unworthily
the Body, Blood, Soul and
Divinity of Jesus Christ present
in the Blessed Sacrament.

this was predicted,
wasn't it? All of a sudden now, Vatican
II's real intent was something
other than the New Mass, yet it was "the
Pope" who instituted the New Mass on
"the basis" of "the recent Second
Vatican Ecumenical Council" (Paul VI, "Missale
1969). So, since 1969 they had been
telling us how wonderful this "Great
Renewal" was with its super-duper,
new-and-improved "Mass," and now they're
saying we lost the sacred because of it?
about this for a moment: Are they
admitting that the New Mass itself (not
just the "abuses" anymore, since now
they want to change the actual rite
itself!) is an incentive to impiety, to
a loss of the sacred? The Council of
Trent defined dogmatically: "If
any one saith, that the ceremonies,
vestments, and outward signs, which the
Catholic Church makes use of in the
celebration of masses, are incentives to
impiety, rather than offices of piety;
let him be anathema"
(Session 22, Chapter IX, Canon VII). Oh,
and check out this other common trap for
traditionalists: They're again saying
that the True Mass was never banned or
abolished by them. This is supposed to
encourage all traditionalists and make
them feel sympathetic with their new
church. Do not fall for it. In their
official documents, they have imposed
the New Mass and forbidden the old.
Anything else they say is always outside
of their official documents, some
irrelevant "commission" whose "findings"
are not actually authoritative in the
New Church anyway, or some off-the-cuff
remarks by some "cardinal" or canon
lawyer or other, or some letter from the
Vatican whose "binding force" would
immediately be disputed by the
"resisting Remnant" if it said
something they don't want to hear. Let's
look at how the "Holy Father"
actually promulgated his impious new
"Mass": "We wish that these Our
decrees and prescriptions may be firm
and effective now and in the future,
notwithstanding, to the extent
necessary, the apostolic constitutions
and ordinances issued by Our
predecessors, and other prescriptions,
even those deserving particular mention
and derogation." That's pretty
clear, isn't it? On October 28, 1974, a
notification was issued as follows: "Mass,
whether in Latin or the vernacular,
celebrated lawfully only
according to the rite of the Roman
Missal promulgated 3 April 1969 by
authority of Pope Paul VI" (source).
Any other questions?
Cartoon on the New
Neo-Catholics and Sedevacantists share
regard, yes, of course: logical
consistency. It's actually quite amazing
that the Remnant is only
discovering this now. But so what?
Logical consistency is actually a pretty
nice similarity to have (it's a mark of
sanity). Neo-Catholics and
sedevacantists both hold to the same
principles, namely, that the True Church
cannot give us harm, impiety, sacrilege,
or error. Amazing, isn't it? Which
Church document will Ferrara quote
against this position? Yes, it
really is this simple: It's
either/or. Either the New Mass, New
Sacraments, New Theology, New Church,
New Everything were promulgated by
legitimate Catholic Church authority,
and then we have to accept them
(that's what a primacy of jurisdiction
calls for); or the authorities were
phony and not Catholic and we can (and
must) reject the whole thing. But
Ferrara and his perpetually-"resisting"
friends want to pick and choose what
they will accept from (what they believe
to be) the Catholic Church. In this way,
they are setting themselves up to a
higher position than the Holy See itself
and get to have the ultimate say about
what's Catholic, what's not, and what
you have to believe and what you can
reject. This is not the Catholic way; it
never has been. The fact that something
is not de fide is irrelevant
(that cardinals' commission is not de
fide, so why does he quote it as
"evidence" that the True Mass was never
abolished? Simple: because he likes what
the commission came up with! It's
pick-and-choose all the way!).
Catholic must accept everything given to
him by the Church, for the Church is a
loving, spotless mother, who gives the
milk of sound doctrine and wholesome
piety to her children. But in the world
of the "perpetual resisters" of the
Remnant, the Church is a monster
that has to be checked again and again
for novelty, error, impiety, and other
spiritual danger, by self-appointed
laymen, no less. This is supposed to be
a traditional Catholic view of the Bride
of Christ? With Denzinger in
hand, the "resisters" arm themselves to
battle what they believe to be the
Catholic Church, and they do not
apparently realize that (according to
their own position) the same authority
that gave them Denzinger is also
now giving them the "Great Renewal" in
all its glory! It's either/or. Make up
your mind already. See how silly this
is: there are tons of Novus Ordo
documents that all say the New Mass is
obligatory (supposing Paul VI was a true
Pope). The Remnant's "resisters"
dismiss all of them; instead, they point
to a "decision
of a Vatican commission and the
subsequent public statements of Vatican

UK "Cardinal" Urges Review of
Cormac Murphy-O'Connor pressed
Health Secretary Patricia Hewitt to
consider whether the 24-week limit
on abortions could be cut, his
spokesman said. 'The 1967 act needs
to be looked at again in the light
of recent changes in science and
women's experiences, and in the
light of public opinion,' the
Reality Check: The
gist of this appeal to a secular
government official, however
well-intentioned it might be, is
that the laws should be changed
not because they violate God's
law and are, hence, null and void,
but because of temporal
considerations ("recent changes in
science and women's experiences" and
"public opinion"). While some might
argue that non-religious points
should be made in such an appeal,
they obscure the real nature of the
fight for the unborn, since advances
in medical science can always be
callously dismissed or
ignored (witness the travesty of
justice in the Terri Schiavo [RIP]
case, where that evidence pointing
to her not being in a
vegetative state or to the
possibility of her partial
rehabilitation through therapy were brusquely
cast aside by
a judge with pro-euthanasia
sympathies), personal experiences
can be labeled "subjective" and
public opinion deemed fickle. Not
that Murphy-O'Connor's pleas have
much chance of swaying a woman
that a British pro-life group
has identified as
who earlier in the year made
abundantly clear her
determined opposition to
any changes in to existing laws.
Church on the Cult of "Public
Opinion": "And, since
where religion has been removed from
civil society, and the doctrine and
authority of divine revelation
repudiated, the genuine notion
itself of justice and human right is
darkened and lost, and the place of
true justice and legitimate right is
supplied by material force, thence
it appears why it is that some,
utterly neglecting and disregarding
the surest principles of sound
reason, dare to proclaim that 'the
people's will, manifested by what is
called public opinion or in some
other way, constitutes a supreme
law, free from all divine and human
control; and that in the political
order accomplished facts, from the
very circumstance that they are
accomplished, have the force of

Westminster: Cardinal asks Hewitt
for abortion review
In an official press release from
the "Archbishop's House" on the same
subject quotes Murphy-O'Connor as
follows: "This is not primarily a
religious issue. It is a human
issue. (Of course it's
primarily a religious issue, like
in "Thou shalt not kill!" By making
such a statement this alleged
shepherd of souls removes God from
the equation, but it's the same sort
of "humanistic" tripe that leaders
of this false religion have
been spewing out for decades.)
...Each one of these is a tragedy
both for the unborn child and the
mother." (Perhaps in a certain sense
[like the "tragedy" of Judas], but
make no mistake, each one is first
and foremost an abominable sin
perpetrated by a parent against her
own helpless offspring. Better that
he not say anything in that regard,
than to make such an grievous omission.
The implication is that it's all
just a terrible, terrible mistake.)
Hard to believe, but true:
"Cardinal" Poupard: Spare Saddam's Life!
How far we've come... Reality Check:
kind of lawful slaying belongs to the civil
authorities, to whom is entrusted power of
life and death, by the legal and judicious
exercise of which they punish the guilty and
protect the innocent. The just use of this
power, far from involving the crime of
murder, is an act of paramount obedience to
this Commandment which prohibits murder. The
end of the Commandment is the preservation
and security of human life. Now the
punishments inflicted by the civil
authority, which is the legitimate avenger
of crime, naturally tend to this end, since
they give security to life by repressing
outrage and violence. Hence these words of
David: In the morning I put to death all the
wicked of the land, that I might cut off all
the workers of iniquity from the city of the
Lord." --Catechism of the Council of

St. Pius V addressed a modern evil:l:
Homosexual Priests Must Be Deprived of

liberalization of customs, we are

US Bishops OK changes to Mass
Novus Ordo theologian
Edward Sunshine of Barry University
in Miami Shores responded to the
cosmetic changes in a typically
modernist fashion, declaring: "It's
not just the language, but the
formality of it. Do you use the
language of the people, or a remote,
specialized language used only for
worship? I guess you'd call it
culture wars in the Roman Catholic
Church." Also from South Florida's Conciliar
scene, the Rev. Pierre Joseph used
modernism to defend the
traditional-sounding changes: "Our
church has to change with the
"Catholic" bishops approve changes
Church -- precisely because it
embraces all nations and is destined
to endure until the end of time --
of its very nature requires a
language that is universal,
immutable, and non-vernacular."

backwards to acknowledge these men as part of the hierarchy
of the Catholic Church. If Paul VI had been denounced as an

never have been a New Mass! This New Church can only survive
