'Catholic Charismatic' movement's revealing
Like the "new Mass," the so-called "Catholic charismatic
renewal" movement was one of the fruits of John XXIII's "new Pentecost"
that emerged in the 1960s after Vatican II, falsely promising Catholics
a "new, improved" way to pray. It also paralleled the Novus Ordo Missĉ
by mimicking Protestant services, in this case the delirium of the
Pentecostals; just as the Montini-Bugnini "Mass" moved the focus of
worship from a renewal of Christ's sacrifice on Calvary and His Presence
in the Blessed Sacrament to a celebration of the congregation,
Charismatic services are very much geared to the "experience" of the

'Archbishop' explains admonishment of pro-abortion Kansas governor
"Archbishop of Kansas City Joseph F. Naumann has further explained the
motives for his public admonishment of Kansas Governor Kathleen Sebelius
for her support for legal abortion. The archbishop’s May 9 column,
citing her recent veto of an abortion law reform bill passed by the
Kansas legislature, had warned Governor Sebelius not to present herself
for Holy Communion until she has publicly repented."
Some "neo-traditional" types (mainly the same crowd that views Benedict
XVI's Latin Mass motu proprio as the greatest thing since, well, since
will vigorously applaud Naumann, but their approbation is very much
misguided. It is instructive to note that Sebelius (easy to
remember, rhymes with rebellious) isn't excommunicated for
being an abortion facilitator, because for Naumann and other members of
the Novus Ordo hierarchy (including "Pope" Ratzinger"), tangibly
assisting in prenatal infanticide simply isn't a very serious matter.
Please keep this in mind when some conciliar apologist tells you how

conscious abettor of these crimes against the weakest and most innocent

on fighting poverty and disease."
It has been noted that Novus Ordo convert Blair has his friend,
Hans Küng, in part to thank for "becoming

he suggested that Benedict XVI take new steps in ecumenism to move

the role of the Papacy, and calling for a Vatican III to achieve what
Vatican II did not accomplish, etc."

The truth about the Spanish Inquisition
"One need not have read Edgar Allan Poe's The Pit and the Pendulum
to have heard of the dark dungeons, sadistic churchmen, and excruciating
tortures of the Spanish Inquisition. The rack, the iron maiden, the
bonfires on which the Catholic Church dumped its enemies by the
millions: These are all familiar icons of the Spanish Inquisition set
firmly into our culture. This image of the Spanish Inquisition is a
useful one for those who have little love for the Catholic Church.
Anyone wishing to beat the Church about the head and shoulders will not
tarry long before grabbing two favorite clubs: the Crusades and the
very possibly based on Satanist Crowley's blasphemous rite 'Bishop' offers
very muted criticism of crucified frog sculpture
"A sculpture of a
crucified frog holding a mug of beer on
display at a Bolzano museum has sparked outrage in Italy. ANSA reports
that local clerics and politicians want the work removed. The one
meter high work by late German artist Martin Kippenberger belongs to his
Fred the Frog series and depicts a warty, pop-eyed amphibian nailed to a
cross with a frothing mug of beer in one hand.
"Curators at Bolzano museum of modern art Museion said that
Kippenberger's work was a self portrait of the artist ''in a state of
crisis,' but their explanation has been given short shrift by local
bishop Wilhelm Egger."
'Bishop" Egger complained: 'The crucified frog has shocked many visitors
to the Museion and has hurt their religious feelings. Even if this was
not the intention of the artist or the Museion, there is a law in place
that says religious feelings should be respected." This response is so
typical of the false shepherds leading the Novus Ordo sect. He suggests
that perhaps the artist or gallery didn't mean to shock and offend.
Really? What part of mocking our Lord's Crucifixion doesn't the man
understand? How much more obvious does it need to be? If an "artist"
throws a crucifix in a jar of urine or makes a portrait of the Blessed
Virgin Mary out of dung, isn't
that more than a hint as to the intent? If a "playwright" casts the role
of Jesus as a foul-mouthed, violence prone sodomite, can't it be safely
assumed that the man is not a friend of God? Ditto

Kippenberger may have gotten the idea from an occult ritual written by
the notorious British Satanist,
(photo right). Crowley entitled the rite
Stauros Batrachou ("Cross of a Frog"), and before the actual
killing of the animal, he goes through steps that include placing it in
a box while intoning a passage from the Te Deum ("Thou didst not abhor
the Virgin's Womb") and "baptizing" it. The ritual is from beginning to
end one of the most studiously blasphemous productions ever conceived in
the darkest recesses of a depraved human mind. For all that, we can only
wonder whether Egger would hold out that it might not have been
Crowley's intention to blaspheme, maybe he "meant well." Such is
the Conciliar mindset, where we see three essentially three types of
"bishops": those who are 1) weaklings too cowardly to stand up for
Christ, 2) equivocators who have adopted an "I'm OK, You're OK"
compromise with the world, and 3) outright infiltrators and turncoats,
who knowingly seek to undermine the Church and Christian
civilization. Such an across-the-board lack of just moral outrage, of
Catholic militancy in these men over those things which seek to mock God
and all things holy is one of the surest proofs that there is a
counterfeit church posing as the Catholic Church.

Hoyos on Summorum Pontificum
"Cardinal" Dario Castrillon Hoyos, Benedict XVI's President of the
"Pontifical" Commission Ecclesia Dei, appeared before the camera to film
the introduction to a video promoting the motu proprio
to Novus Ordo presiders, though the validity of Masses said by these men
must be considered as doubtful as their Holy Orders. He begins the intro
sounding very Catholic, alluding to how the traditional Mass is a
"treasure" that for over a thousand "brought unity to the Faith," and
enabled Catholics to adore God in "sacred silence" and "contemplation,"
and how it is a rite of "liturgical richness," "spiritual richness," and
The obvious question for Hoyos is why there should even be a "new
Mass" to compete with the Mass, since it could never equal, much less
surpass, it. Why replace a treasure with something clearly of
lesser value, something that destroys quiet spiritual reflection on the
Holy Sacrifice at the altar for noisy communal distractions and which,
instead of being theologically rich is vague and ambiguous, when it
isn't being outright erroneous? Why tale away the hallowed Mystery of
Faith, only to put in its place something commonplace and even at times
Hoyos says that
Benedict promulgated the motu proprio "spontaneously" as "a gift
freely offered," but those who are familiar with Ratzinger's writings on
liturgy know him to favor a merging of the two rites. It is something
that he's been considering for years, so it's hardly a spontaneous act.
The notion that
is somehow a
is an insult to Catholics. We are entitled to the true Mass in every
church in the world, and
not as an equivalent to that long ago discredited caricature of sacred
liturgy, Montini-Bugnini's so-called
Novus Ordo Missĉ,
which does nothing to enrich the soul or spiritually edify the senses.
There can be no compromise for Catholics, no acceptance of what is
essentially a Protestant worship service as a trade-off for limited
access to the true Mass in Conciliar churches.
The video's conclusion is telling, as well, for as Hoyos mentions new
church clerics learning the traditional rite, he says such instruction
is very important, so that they will celebrate it with
"piety and love." This is a curious remark, because of what it
inadvertently suggests. Instruction videos can teach the Latin, the
rubrics, and so forth, needed to offer Mass properly, but what they
can't do is provide the dispositions of the heart necessary to do so in
a reverent manner. But if the true Mass and "new Mass" are but
variations of the same Roman Rite, then why should Hoyos even be
concerned about such a thing in the first place? If they're already
saying one form of the rite with the requisite piety and love, oughtn't
it care over to the other form as well? If there wasn't the disparity of
rites we know exists, then Hoyos would never have had to say such a
thing, but the underlying truth is that going through the Mass as if it
were the Novus Ordo would be manifestly flawed. Hence the need for such
N.B. What must never be lost sight of when we see Hoyos spin such
comforting rhetoric is that the motu proprio is Benedict XVI's stepping
stone to the "Mass of the Future," which will be a hybrid fusing
elements of each rite together into a synthesis. Already, in the Good
Friday Prayer revision, we see Ratzinger beginning the process by
patching his novelty into the 1962 Missal, and the motu crowd should
expect more of the same in the not too distant future for the "Pope" has
written that "the two Forms of the usage of the Roman Rite can be
mutually enriching: new Saints and some of the new Prefaces can and
should be inserted in the old Missal. The
Commission, in contact with various bodies devoted to the
will study the practical possibilities in this regard." (from the motu's

regarded as a

The Exorcism of Emily Rose,
which was based on real life events from Germany in 1975.)
It has been over a millennium since the Benedictine missionary and
St. Boniface brought the Faith to what is now Germany, and the above
article is evidence that that country has become, in a very real sense,
nation. We can say this based the experience of the Church regarding
demonic possession through the ages. In scripture, we read of several
instances where Christ to cast out demons (Mary Magdalene, a man who
could not speak, a boy who would cast himself into fires and otherwise
attempt self-destruction, a man found living like a wild animal amongst
the tombs at Gerasens, etc.), and exorcism was one of first spiritual
powers He bestowed upon the Apostles:
"Then calling together the twelve apostles, he gave them power and
authority over all devils, and to cure diseases."
Clearly, the world was then
a place where such possessions were very prevalent. And so has been the
case down through the ages in every pagan land the Church was to
evangelize, but as our Lord and His Church were brought to the nations,
so that the darkness of their false religions lifted from those peoples,
the incidents lessened. So, in examining Church history we read: "…with
the spread of Christianity and the disappearance of paganism, demonic
power has been curtailed, and cases of obsession have become much rarer.
It is only Catholic missionaries laboring in pagan lands, where
Christianity is not yet dominant, who are likely to meet with fairly
frequent cases of possession."

Interesting that he uses the expression "partners" instead of "husbands"

Noe: Paul VI saw liturgical abuse as 'smoke of Satan'
"When Pope Paul VI [Giovanni Montini] spoke about the
'smoke of Satan' entering the Catholic Church, he was referring to
liturgical abuses, according to the prelate who served as his master of
"Cardinal Virgilio Noe [pronounced "No-eh"], the chief Vatican liturgist
during the pontificate of Paul VI, spoke candidly about the late Pope's
concerns in an interview with the Roman Petrus web site. The Italian
prelate-- who was also the Vatican's top liturgist under Pope John Paul
I and the early years of the pontificate of John Paul II-- is now
retired, and at the age of 86 his health is failing. In his interview
with Petrus he concentrated primarily on his years serving Pope Paul VI.
Paul accepted the liturgical reforms after Vatican II 'with pleasure,'
Cardinal Noe said.…" (emphasis added)
Those pesky abuses,
What's could be more
logical? For decades it's been the excuse of choice for Conciliar
apologists seeking to defend the Montini-Bugnini "new Mass,' so its
fitting that the alibi's come full circle as a defense for Paul VI
trouble with it is that it ignores several obvious facts.
For a decade after Montini's imposition of the Novus Ordo Missae in 1969
the "abuses" continued unabated, so their would have been plenty of time
for him to have moved against them, but he did no such thing. The truth
behind this smoke screen, of course, is that it is Paul
VI's novel liturgy
that is the
Smoke of Satan in the sanctuary? It was Montini he put it there when he
sought to foist on Catholics a rite that was principally crafted by the
Freemason Bugnini with the assistance of Protestant ministers (shown
above with Paul VI, who is at the right). It is curious that it took Noe
over thirty years after Montini used the expression in 1972 to
"remember" that it alluded to abuses; curious, as well, that the
recollection came only after Benedict XVI's "liberation of the
traditional Mass." (Neither did Noe, despite being "papal" master of
ceremonies for Paul VI, do anything to fight the abuses, nor would he in
his years with John Paul II.)

Supreme Court legalizes same-sex 'marriage'

'Death of Communism' update
'Ex-Soviet' Russia close to $2B arms deal with
"Next to Communist Cuba, Boliviarian Venezuela is neo-Soviet Russia's
biggest client for military hardware. Later this month Venezuela's
revolutionary leader Hugo Chavez will visit Moscow to conclude a US$2
billion arms agreement that includes 10 Il-76 Candid military transport
planes, two Il-78-MK aerial tankers, and four Kilo-class Project 636
diesel submarines. The Russian transport planes and aerial tankers will
replace US counterparts currently in service with the Venezuelan Air
Force but which the USA refuses to upgrade due to political tensions
between Washington and Caracas.
"This will be the communist dictator's seventh visit to Russia since
assuming office in February 1999. During last summer's Moscow trip
(pictured above), in addition to power networking with then President
Vladimir Putin, Chavez also rubbed elbows with Communist Party of the
Russian Federation/Soviet Union Chairman Gennady Zyuganov. At the time

Public opinion surveys always are to be taken with a large grain of
salt, especially when the pollsters try to claim that they are able to
accurately glean the sentiment of a nation of over 200 million citizens
simply by contacting 1100 people for their views. The results are all
the more dubious when they're found to significantly contradict other
polls' findings. Still, this is a method that in the past has
successfully conditioned and molded the minds of many to accept such
moral evils as abortion and homosexuality, so it should not be viewed

CHURCH & SALVATION by Msgr. Fenton is a classic work on the subject
of Baptism and Salvation. First commenting, then analyzing the concept
of salvation, and shows the doctrine of salvation is determined by and
depends upon, the very nature of the Church. "In his encyclical Humani
Generis Pope Pius XII referred to a statement by his great predecessor,
Pope Pius IX, to the effect that the noblest function of sacred theology
is that of showing how the doctrine defined by the Church is found in
the sources of revelation--that is, in Sacred Scripture and in divine
apostolic tradition--in the very sense in which the Church proposed it

Revisionist bio paints Pope Saint Pius X as
precursor of Vatican II "The assessment of the pontificate of Pius X – which until now
had appeared as a moment of stasis or even of regression because of the
condemnation of modernism – emerges overturned. It was not the desire
for condemnation, but the insistence on reform and modernization that
motivated his decade-long pontific, an insistence so energetic that the
pope preferred to advance it through his own private secretariat, the
well-known 'segreteriola,' rather than through the offices of the

Benedict, in the course of his recent U.S. visit may have dealt a
knockout blow to the liberal American Catholicism that has
challenged Rome since the early 1960s. He did so by speaking frankly
and forcefully of his "deep shame" during his meeting with victims
of the Church's sex-abuse scandal. By demonstrating that he 'gets'
this most visceral of issues, the pontiff may have successfully
mollified a good many alienated believers — and in the process,
neutralized the last great rallying point for what was once a feisty

From French Revolution to Vatican II rebellion
(regarding 'moderate' revolutionaries)
“'Left-wing' and 'right-wing' are terms arising from the division of
the French Revolutionaries of 1789 into violent, or only
semi-violent, destroyers of the Old Order, that of throne and –

the altar. Therefore what differentiates left-wingers from
right-wingers is their more or less explicit apostasy."

met with a roar of indignation from the brown-habited religious brother,
principal of the school. In two lengthy phone conversations, he berated
me angrily, utterly outraged that I would question his professional
judgment in assigning such a book to 15 year-old students—a book which,
it has been calculated, has 295 instances of swearing using God’s name,
and 795 other profanities, besides a graphic depiction of a suicide and
numerous descriptions of the main character’s sexual adventures."

"Yesterday was Ascension Thursday. Or was it? Well, it was Ascension
Thursday in every chapel served by true bishops and true priests who
make no concessions to conciliarism or to the nonexistent legitimacy of
its false shepherds. It was Ascension Thursday in the chapels
administered by the priests of the Society of Saint Pius X and the
priests, some validly ordained and some not, who run "independent"
chapels without the permission of the conciliar authorities while
"recognizing" the esteemer of false religions as the validly reigning
"pontiff." It was Ascension Thursday even in many dioceses in the
structures of the counterfeit church of conciliarism. However, it was
not Ascension Thursday in all of the dioceses that are in the control
currently of the revolutionaries of the counterfeit church of
conciliarism. Let me explain."

Present-day Judaism is not Old Testament Judaism
