Welcome to Novus Ordo Watch

See for yourself how the False Church of Vatican II is NOT
the Roman Catholic Church of Pope Pius XII and before

Since autumn of 2002, Novus Ordo Watch has relentlessly monitored, researched, exposed, and refuted the false doctrines, impious practices, and twisted morals of the "Novus Ordo Church," which is the false, pseudo-Catholic church that emerged after the death of Pope Pius XII in 1958, and which has effectively supplanted and eclipsed the true Catholic Church of Our Blessed Lord and Redeemer, Jesus Christ.

We adhere fully to the Magisterium of the Roman Catholic Church from her founding in 33 A.D. by the Blessed Lord Jesus Christ through the death of the last known Pope, Pius XII, on October 9, 1958. (To find out what happened after, click here.)

Our most popular page is the Novus Ordo Wire blog — stay up to date on the shenanigans of the Vatican II Church and how it is refuted by the real Catholic Church of Pope Pius XII and his predecessors. If you like listening to podcasts, you will enjoy our TRADCAST program, which is available free of charge. Also, be sure to check out our “Now What?” page, which answers most questions people have about what can be done by each individual Catholic right now.

To learn more about Novus Ordo Watch and how you can help restore true, traditional Catholicism, please peruse our site thoroughly and be sure to visit our About Us page. You can also follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and YouTube, and subscribe to our Novus Ordo Wire RSS feed (click below).

May God bless you!
