When Gaia calls:
Televised Novus Ordo “Mass” ends with
Hymn to Pagan Earth Goddess

From the Modernist Sect which “rejects nothing that is true and holy in [false] religions” (Vatican II, Declaration Nostra Aetate, n. 2) comes this latest tidbit testifying to religious syncretism: The “Archdiocese” of Toronto, Canada, includes in its weekly televised Novus Ordo “Mass” as a recessional the heathen hymn O Beautiful Gaia, an ode to the Pagan earth goddess GaiaSee for yourself:

The hymn to the earth goddess begins at 27:30

O Beautiful Gaia was written by Carolyn McDade, an American progressivist and feminist with ties to Unitarian Universalism, who wants to help bring about “humanity renewed in an Earth refreshed” (source). The lyrics to the heathen song can be found here. Gaia is one of those “dumb idols” denounced by St. Paul in 1 Cor 12:2.

So, let’s get this straight: “Pope” Francis releases an encyclical letter on care for the environment (“Laudato Si”), exhorting mankind to be nice to “Mother Earth”, and the next thing you know is, earth worship is incorporated into an official televised archdiocesan “Catholic Mass”! But what is no less concerning is that barely a soul seems to have noticed. 

We say “barely” because one person who raised a ruckus about it was the blogger Vox Cantoris. Unfortunately, being Novus Ordo himself (albeit with strong traditional leanings), Vox Cantoris thinks the solution is to appeal to Toronto’s “Cardinal” Thomas Collins to “fix that”. But as long as these Modernist charlatans are acknowledged as legitimate Roman Catholic authorities, the problem is necessarily perpetuated, because this is what gives them all their credibility and thus all their power: people’s belief that they are authorities in the Roman Catholic Church. They are not! They cannot be shepherds in a religion of which they are not a member.

So, as long as people do not proclaim from the housetops that the “Catholic hierarchy” consists of Modernist charlatans, nothing will change. As the history of the Novus Ordo Church proves, things have only gotten worse over time. There may be an occasional speed bump here and there, but overall the Vatican II hierarchy is still on a highway to hell with its adherents — at full throttle.


Our advice:
When Gaia calls… better not pick up!

That Gaia worship can intrude into the Novus Ordo Liturgy practically unnoticed is further evidence that the “New Mass” is the New-Covenant version of the sacrifice of Cain: “And it came to pass after many days, that Cain offered, of the fruits of the earth, gifts to the Lord. Abel also offered of the firstlings of his flock, and of their fat: and the Lord had respect to Abel, and to his offerings. But to Cain and his offerings he had no respect: and Cain was exceedingly angry, and his countenance fell” (Gen 4:3-5). Is it any wonder that the Modernist “Mass” says in its “preparation of the gifts”: 

Blessed are you, Lord, God of all creation. Through your goodness we have this bread to offer, which earth has given and human hands have made. It will become for us the bread of life.


Blessed are you, Lord, God of all creation. Through your goodness we have this wine to offer, fruit of the vine and work of human hands. It will become our spiritual drink.

(“Liturgy of the Eucharist”, The Order of Mass,

Yes, in the Novus Ordo Missae they actually offer to God that “which earth has given and human hands have made” and the “fruit of the vine and work of human hands” — not the Body and Blood of Christ. 

By contrast, the offertory of the Holy Catholic Mass in the Roman rite is as follows:

Accept, O Holy Father, almighty and eternal God, this spotless Host, which I, Thy unworthy servant, offer unto Thee, my living and true God, to atone for my innumerable sins, offenses, and negligences, and for all here present; also for all faithful Christians both living and dead, that it may profit me and them for salvation unto life everlasting. Amen.

We offer Thee, O Lord, the chalice of salvation, beseeching Thy clemency, that it may ascend before Thy divine Majesty, as a sweet fragrance, for our salvation, and for that of the whole world. Amen.

Accept us, O Lord, in our spirit of humility and contrition of heart, and grant that the sacrifice which we offer this day in Thy sight may be pleasing to Thee, O Lord God.

Come, O Sanctifier, Almighty and Eternal God, and bless this sacrifice prepared for the glory of Thy holy Name.

(“Mass of the Faithful”, Holy Roman Catholic Mass; taken from Latin-English Missal,

Quite a difference between the Modernist happy-meal worship service and the Holy Catholic Mass, huh? For more on that, see the following article on the Motu Inapproprio of Benedict XVI and his attempt to confuse the Novus Ordo service with the Traditional Catholic Mass, which he claimed were merely two “forms” or “expressions” of the “one Roman rite”:

The Gaia scandal demonstrates that the paganism of the Novus Ordo Sect is totally in-your-face now. Folks, they do it because they can. They have the clueless, naive “Catholic” masses sitting in the pews, with no idea about the true Catholic religion, happily writing those checks to support the local Modernist hierarchy. Everything in their religion is about being nice, helping our neighbor, recycling, not judging, not gossiping, and so on. Everything focuses on this world, this earth, our relationship with each other — everything is mainly horizontal.

True, God is invoked at times, but when you look at everything in context, He is really presented as only a nice glorified chap who solves your problems, hears your prayers, and makes you feel good. That’s His job. He is supposed to exist for you, not you for Him, according to the Modernist gospel. Our duty of adoration, praise, thanksgiving, and atonement before Almighty God, the absolute need we have of being justified before Him, the state of our soul, the fact that we were created to be in perpetual union with Him and He is wholly deserving of all of our love and loyalty and obedience — all this is woefully neglected or ignored, if not downright denied, in the Conciliar religion.

Francis is clearly at the forefront of preaching this false gospel, which we have fittingly named the “Gospel of Man”. No wonder he has no answer to the question of the purpose of suffering:

All this Modernist pseudo-spiritual trash has been promoted for decades and is a main characteristic of the False Church of Vatican II.

Recently, the “Bishop” of Orlando, Mr. John Noonan, sent out a message on Twitter that demonstrates the entire spiritual depth of the Modernist Sect: On the feast of St. Mary Magdalene (July 22), Noonan (who tweets as @BishopNoonan) wrote: “St. Mary Magdalene was the first to proclaim the good news of the Resurrection to the twelve apostles. What good news can you share today?” (source).

[Face-Palm] The Good News of the Resurrection is now being put on a level with the “good news” we may have for our family and friends, as in, “I passed my driving test!”, or “I got a puppy!”, or “Amazon now has free shipping!” The banality, triteness, and fluff of Novus Ordo spiritual guidance is Chicken Soup for the Soul Lite — and warmed over. Noonan has mastered its art perfectly, which is probably the reason he was chosen by Benedict XVI to become a “bishop”.

We know this is a provocative way to put it, but we’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: One is hard-pressed to find people more useless in the world than American Novus Ordo bishops. Noonan, formerly part of the Modernist Archdiocese of Miami (Vice), fits right in with them. (See his fluffy reflection on Laudato Si here.) Perhaps he’ll soon be a “cardinal”.

But we digress.


If a hymn to an earth goddess can be broadcast on television as part of a “Catholic Mass” without anyone at the “archdiocese” noticing or objecting, we may surmise that at this point, they could have hymns to Moloch, Lucifer, or Judas Iscariot and no one would bat an eye. It would just be another addition to the Novus Ordo worship “experience”, and that’s what it’s all about — for them.

But then, we also do not mean to give the impression that all of this is entirely new. Far from it. Back in 1978, “Pope” John Paul I praised a Satanist at a Sunday Angelus address — and no one noticed or cared! 

We also recall his successor’s love for paganism, as evidenced, for example, in Assisi, in India, and in Benin. In 1985, John Paul II himself confessed to having worshipped together with animists in Togo: “Particularly striking was the prayer meeting in the sanctuary of Our Lady of Mercy at Lake Togo, where I also prayed for the first time with animists” (General Audience, Aug. 21, 1985, n. 8). We recall the same Bishop Wojtyla’s obsessive-compulsive kissing of asphalt every time he traveled abroad (see picture above right). And just recently “Cardinal” Gianfranco Ravasi was caught worshipping the “Pachamama”, another pagan earth goddess, in Argentina.

Detect a pattern yet?

Holy Scripture has numerous passages that would apply here — we will quote only two: 

“For you have provoked him who made you, the eternal God, offering sacrifice to devils, and not to God. For you have forgotten God, who brought you up, and you have grieved Jerusalem that nursed you” (Bar 4:7-8); “Thus saith the Lord: Stand ye on the ways, and see and ask for the old paths which is the good way, and walk ye in it: and you shall find refreshment for your souls. And they said: we will not walk” (Jer 6:16).

What more is there to say? Who in this world can still believe that the apostate Vatican II Sect is in fact the Catholic Church, the Bride of Christ, which cannot lead the faithful astray? If you still believe that Francis is a valid Pope, then, pray tell: WHAT DOES IT TAKE?

We are quickly approaching the day when this hilarious parody of Vatican II — on the church’s relationship with Satan —, will be taken by people to be an actual magisterial document of the Novus Ordo Sect.

It might as well be, at this point.

Sermon Series:
“Satan will Try to Deceive Even the Elect”
Part 3


Most Rev. Mark A. Pivarunas

As part of their ongoing broadcast series “From the Pulpit,” our friends at The Restoration Radio Network are making available a very informative 3-part sermon by His Excellency, Bishop Mark Pivarunas, CMRI, on the ways in which Satan is trying to deceive even the elect, as warned by our Blessed Lord Jesus Christ in Matthew 24:24: “For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect.

The following description of Part 3 of Bp. Pivarunas’ sermon is adapted from Restoration Radio:

Bishop Pivarunas compares the Council of Vatican I to that of Vatican II. One of the issues discussed in Vatican I was the issue of papal infallibility. Pope Pius IX addressed the issue and defined papal infallibility during Vatican I.

What is laid out in this episode is especially important to know in order to determine whether the “Popes” of today are merely expressing opinions that do not fall within the scope of papal infallibility, or if they are preaching heresy, and by their teachings prove they cannot be true Popes.

Bishop Pivarunas continues this episode by exploring the truth behind the alleged “heretical Popes” of the past, discovering whether these Popes were indeed heretics or not.

This mini-series is concluded by Bishop Pivarunas exploring the two aspects of infallibility and how Christ established the Catholic Church and the Papacy within the Church, sharing quotes from various books on the matter.

Williamson spouts Protestant ideas...

Christ or Belial?
Bp. Sanborn refutes Bp. Williamson on the “New Mass”


Just recently we took Bp. Richard Williamson to task for his ludicrous argumentation that the “New Mass” of the Vatican II Sect can licitly be attended by Catholics under certain restrictive circumstances. As we demonstrated in our post and video, the former SSPX bishop’s argumentation was lacking in consistency and, most of all, in traditional Catholic theological principles. Williamson based his entire argumentation on the Modernist, Subjectivist, and Protestant idea that licit attendance at Holy Mass is determined by what it does for the believer, rather than whether it is the true worship of God by the Catholic Church. Holy Mass, for Williamson, is principally and essentially a spiritual aid to the believer, rather than the Church’s solemn worship of the Most Holy Trinity.

Bp. Donald Sanborn, rector of the sedevacantist Most Holy Trinity Seminary in Brooksville, Florida, has now weighed in with a substantial blog post that systematically refutes the errors of Bp. Williamson on this very topic. Here is an excerpt, followed by a link to the full article:

[Source: In Veritate Blog]


A Response to Bishop Williamson concerning Attendance at the New Mass

On June 28th of this year, Bishop Williamson gave a conference to a gathering of people in Connecticut, followed by questions and answers.

A woman asked him whether it was permissible to attend the New Mass. Bishop Williamson says that, under certain circumstances, it is permissible to actively participate in the New Mass.


Point # 1. The New Mass is either Catholic worship or it is non-Catholic worship. There is no third possibility. In order that a Mass be Catholic, it must (a) contain a valid Catholic rite of consecration; (b) be offered by a validly ordained Catholic priest who is in union with the Catholic hierarchy, and who is authorized by that hierarchy to offer the Mass in the name of the whole Church; (c) Catholic ceremonies, that is, ceremonies which express the Catholic truth concerning the Mass. If any of these elements should be lacking, it would not be a Catholic Mass, and it would be a mortal sin to attend it.

If we concentrate only on the question of Catholic ceremonies, it is clear that the New Mass is non-Catholic worship….

The Anglican communion service, for example, contains a valid consecration formula, but it is non-Catholic worship because the surrounding prayers convey error and heresy concerning the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass and the priesthood. The same is true of the New Mass. The same is true of the Mass of Luther.

For this reason, ever since 1969, Catholics all over the world have been avidly resisting and rejecting the New Mass, even though it was promulgated by Paul VI, precisely because it is non-Catholic worship. If it is Catholic worship, then why are we resisting it? If it is non-Catholic worship, then how could we attend it?

One cannot say that “a rite designed to undermine Catholics’ faith” is Catholic worship, and pleasing to God. It is an abomination in God’s sight, and this fact is the very reason for our decades-long persistent rejection of it.

Point # 2. The Catholic Mass is not primarily a spiritual pick-me-up. Bishop Williamson, early in the response to the woman’s question, stated as the golden rule and the absolute rule of rules: “Do whatever you need to do to nourish your faith.”

Let it be said, first of all, that the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is offered primarily and essentially for the worship of God, and not as a fervor stimulant for our spiritual lives. It is accurate that any true worship of God, even Miraculous Medal devotions, will have as a side effect the increase of fervor and devotion in our souls. In no case, however, is any act of worship directed primarily or essentially toward the increase of personal piety.

The principle which Bishop Williamson gives here — “Do whatever you need to do to nourish your faith.” — is utterly protestant. For the protestant all worship consists solely of an interior act of praise and thanksgiving to God. The protestant’s altar is his heart. His worship is consequently completely subjective, as is his faith. The purpose of external protestant worship, i.e., whatever they do on Sundays at their churches, is to excite the heart towards feelings of faith. For this reason, protestant worship can vary from being very Catholic in its trappings, such as that of the High Anglicans, to being something very low and vulgar, such as that of the pentecostalists. What is the golden rule for protestants which makes all of it true worship? It is exactly what Bishop Williamson said: “Do whatever you need to do to nourish your faith.”

The statement is also modernist. Modernism utterly subjectivizes religion. Religion is your own interior religious experience, and dogma must evolve according as your religious experience evolves. To tell someone that the absolute rule of rules is to “do whatever you need to do to nourish your faith” means that our interior faith is what justifies the external worship, whatever it may be.

Consequently the modernist could just as easily say that a balloon Mass nourishes his faith, or a clown Mass, or any other kind of liturgical aberration.

The Catholic position is that what nourishes our faith is Catholic doctrine. Pope Pius XII said in his encyclical Mediator Dei: “Let the rule of prayer determine the rule of belief.” (no. 48), which means, as he explains, that the liturgy must reflect Catholic truth: “The liturgy is a profession of eternal truths.” (ibid.) The Pontiff also says in the same paragraph that the liturgy receives its doctrine from the teachings of the Church, and that it is also right to say: “Let the rule of belief determine the rule of prayer.”

Catholic liturgical doctrine, therefore, declares that there is a tight and mutual connection between Catholic dogma and Catholic liturgy. Consequently, the only liturgy which could nourish our faith, according to Pius XII, would be one which is determined by Catholic dogma.

How then could the New Mass nourish one’s faith? The only way in which it could is if it reflects Catholic truth, i.e., as Pius XII says, if “it is a profession of eternal truths.”

If the New Mass is a profession of eternal truths, however, then in what way is it bad, and why do we resist it and reject it?

It is obviously not a profession of eternal truths, as everyone knows, and especially Bishop Williamson, who said: “It is a rite designed to undermine Catholics’ faith, and to turn their belief away from God towards man.”

The conclusion is that Bishop Williamson is thoroughly mixed up, is totally inconsistent, is tainted by protestant and modernist thinking, and lays all the logical groundwork for a reconciliation with the modernists, for him the dreaded Fellay-ism…


It is wonderfully refreshing to see someone put forth real Catholic theological principles and juxtaposing them with the half-baked and haphazard ideas of Bp. Williamson. It is in this contrast that it becomes amply clear which of the two bishops is dispassionately using Catholic theology in an analysis of the situation and applies it to the case at hand. Sanborn uses the rigorous content of Sacred Theology; Williamson simply makes it up as he goes along (“if you watch and pray”; “if you trust the priest”; “if it’s a decent Mass”, etc.).

You may wish to review the actual video footage of Bp. Williamson’s embarrassing waffling on the question of whether a Catholic can participate in the worship of the Modernist Vatican II religion — a question which should not be difficult to answer:

Our own critique of Williamson can be found in this video, as well as in our accompanying post:

For more refutations of Bp. Williamson, and more of Bp. Sanborn, be sure to check the following posts:

One essential point to remember is this: You cannot uphold Catholic Tradition if you make up new ideas and principles to suit a desired conclusion. If you wish to defend and keep the Faith of old, then you cannot modify it to fit the current situation, for by doing so, you are necessarily giving up the very Faith you have desired to preserve.

Very informative & challenging...

On the Sede Vacante Thesis:
Traditional Catholic Conference & Debate
on Sedevacantism (2002)


The Chair of St. Peter at St. Peter’s Basilica, Vatican City

On July 6, 2002, a traditional Catholic conference and debate took place between Mr. John Daly of France, Mr. John Lane of Australia, and Mr. Gerry Matatics of the United States. The almost 4-hour-long conference took place at a hotel in Verona, New York, and was recorded in full.

We are pleased to be able to share with you the complete audio of this conference in the player below:

If you prefer to download the mp3 file for offline listening later, please do so through this DIRECT LINK

As you listen to the audio, please keep in mind that it was recorded 13 years ago, during the “reign” of John Paul II. Mr. Daly and Mr. Lane argued the case for sedevacantism; Mr. Matatics, at the time not yet a sedevacantist, raised objections, which were then answered by Daly and Lane. The presentation given by Mr. Daly has since been transcribed and published in The Four Marks newspaper, available here:

The introduction at this conference was given by Dr. Lance Tardugno. The “St. Thomas Aquinas” web site of John Lane mentioned at the beginning is now defunct. However, Mr. Lane still maintains a discussion forum at John Daly, a professional translator (French and Latin), is also a publisher and has reprinted a number of rare traditional Catholic books at

If you thought you’d seen it all...

You ain’t seen nothin’ yet if you ain’t seen…
Father Bob Maguire!


We struggle for words to introduce to you Father — yes, he’s actually a real priest — Bob Maguire, an eccentric celebrity in the “Archdiocese” of Melbourne, Australia. “Everything that is wrong with the Novus Ordo in one man” — that is perhaps the best one-line description one can give of this anti-Catholic lowlife.

The video below shows Fr. Maguire’s final Novus Ordo “Mass” at his parish of Ss. Peter and Paul, which he perpetrated on January 29, 2012, having resisted his forcible retirement for over two years. No, “Archbishop” Denis Hart didn’t force him into retirement because he was horrified by Maguire’s sacrilegious and absurd chaos — at least not if we take his words at face value — but this is what Maguire’s fans are accusing the “Archbishop” of doing. Novus Ordo church law requires that pastors submit their resignation at age 75, and although the bishop is not required to accept it, Maguire reached this milestone in 2009. He didn’t actually leave the parish until 2012.

But now on to the video. CAUTION! What you are about to see will probably shock you — yes, you, you who think you’ve seen it all:

Click to play video

If you watch nothing else, watch the segment beginning at 36:32 until 40:30 — that’s from the Sanctus to the Our Father — and don’t forget to close your mouth afterwards.

It’s just surprising that Fr. Bob didn’t light a cigarette or excuse himself to go to the restroom in the middle of this despicable, self-centered spectacle. With Fr. Bob, the Fun Church is in overdrive; Francis must love the man.

As we’ve asked our readers before, when all is said and done, when your time is up and your life is coming to a close and you only have a few more minutes to live, whom would you rather have at your deathbed — the strict, serious, reverent, and wholly orthodox genuine Catholic priest, whose desire is to lead you to eternal salvation, no matter how painful it should be — or this ridiculous happy-clappy goofball who mocks the sacred priesthood of our Lord with every breath he takes, and who may perhaps send you off into eternity, not with absolution and holy Viaticum but with a backslap and an irreverent, “Say hi to the Lord for me when you get there”? 


Any resemblance with ‘Father Chuck’ is entirely coincidental...

In 2013,
Penguin Books published a biography of this shameless Modernist, entitled Father Bob - The Larrikin Priest. A brief video introducing the book can be watched here. That same year, a crowdfunded television documentary about Maguire was released in Australia, entitled In Bob We Trust.

Ordained in 1960, Fr. Maguire possesses valid orders. He is an alter Christus, a priest forever according the order of Melchisedek (cf. Heb 5:6). With this in mind, have a look at these sobering links:

Tremble is what we all ought to do at the sacred priesthood of our Blessed Lord. Fr. Maguire thinks it’s reason to make a fool of himself. 

The reality is that scoffers like Maguire come and go. What remains forever is the Word of the Lord. And this Word says: “Be not deceived, God is not mocked” (Gal 6:7).

A walk on the wild side, for sure...

Laudato Si in Action:


“Cardinal” Ravasi worships Earth Goddess

The head of the Vatican’s so-called “Pontifical Council for Culture”, “Cardinal” Gianfranco Ravasi, has been spotted worshipping an Andean pagan deity known as Pachamama, a “Mother Earth” goddess. The video below shows Ravasi taking part in the idolatrous rite together with Quechuan natives in Argentina. An apparent Novus Ordo nun is also participating.

As far as culture goes, this is the same “Cardinal” Ravasi who sent a series of tweets in late October 2013 to honor the passing of Lou Reed, a scandalous and lewd American rock singer whose 1972 hit Walk on the Wild Side contained lyrics that included “taboo topics such as transsexuality, drugs, male prostitution and oral sex” (source). Clearly, Ravasi is a perfect candidate for the Vatican under Francis.

Now, as though meaning to echo (or rather, anticipate) the release of Francis’ eco-encyclical Laudato Si, a video has now appeared that shows the bogus “Catholic cardinal” participating in a pagan rite of adoration of the mother earth goddess Pachamama. This took place in November of 2014. Take a look:

The following is our translation of an article on this incident written by Vatican journalist Giuseppe Nardi, originally published on July 20, 2015 at Nardi is a conservative/traditionalist Novus Ordo adherent and an extremely reliable source for news inside and outside the Vatican.

Cardinal Ravasi participates in Idolatry — “Mother Earth” Cult

(Buenos Aires) Curial cardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, president of the Pontifical Council for Culture, actively took part in a ceremony of Pachamama worship in Argentina’s San Marcos Sierras. In the Quechuan language, the goddess Pachamama basically means “Mother Earth” or “Mother Cosmos”. It is a relic of pre-Christian, pagan times, which has survived in sections of the Quechua and Aymara Indians of the Andean countries.

The Pachamama goddess, which the Indians believe to be “omnipotent”, is worshipped with sacrifices, especially “coca leaves”, “lucky charms, medicinal herbs, llama fetuses”, [and] “little dolls”, as the Neue Zürcher Zeitung wrote. “At the occult market of La Paz” in Bolivia, “the ingredients for the burnt sacrifice in honor of Pachamama” are mixed together and “faith becomes business”, according to the NZZ.

The animist cult is also practiced in a village of the Central-Argentine province of Cordoba. This is where San Marcos Sierras is located, with its almost 950 inhabitants (2010), approximately 150 km [~93 mi] away from the city of Cordoba, to which Pope Francis had been exiled by the superior of his province in the 1980s. San Marcos Sierras is considered to be the last village to be mostly inhabited by the Indian people of the Comechingones (Henia and Kamiare), which consists of only 5,000 members at this point.

“Courtyard of the Gentiles” with an Idolatrous Cult

The act of adoring Pachamama took place back in November 2014 as part of Ravasi’s “Courtyard of the Gentiles” initiative, which made a stop in Argentina at the time, but did not become known until now through the publication of a video clip. The idolatry was organized by Foro Ecumenico Social (ecumenical-social forum). The most prominent person present at the Mother Earth worship was Cardinal Ravasi, “the cultured one” (ORF) among the Curia’s cardinals. The cardinal was not merely a spectator but an active participant (see video). He had been accompanied to San Marcos Sierras by Theresa Varela, vice-president of the Foro Ecumenico Social and president of the Mision Esperanza foundation, “as well as some of the indigenous population.”

According to inofficial data by the Argentinian authorities, the village’s population has reportedly increased to 3,000 residents since, as there has been a strong influx of Argentines from the country’s biggest cities, of Europeans and white U.S. citizens “of the middle and upper class.” San Marcos Sierras welcomes tourists and is considered a popular destination for members of the hippie movement. A connection to the cult of Panamacha may be presumed. 

[End Giuseppe Nardi text]

Shocked? Come on, folks, it’s the Novus Ordo Sect we’re talking about here, so what do you expect?

As we have noted before, the Vatican II apostasy is so blatant at this point that it can easily be recognized and refuted even just by a cursory perusal of Holy Scripture: “For all the gods of the Gentiles are devils: but the Lord made the heavens” (Ps 95:5); “Turn ye not to idols, nor make to yourselves molten gods. I am the Lord your God” (Lev 19:4); “ shall be manifest that they are no gods, but the work of men' s hands, and that there is no work of God in them” (Bar 6:50); “This wicked people, that will not hear my words, and that walk in the perverseness of their heart, and have gone after strange gods to serve them, and to adore them: and they shall be as this girdle which is fit for no use” (Jer 13:10).


But then again, “Cardinal” Ravasi was merely following the exhortation of “Pope Saint” John Paul II, who said: “What we have just said must also be applied — although in another way and with the due differences — to activity for coming closer together with the representatives of the non-Christian religions, an activity expressed through dialogue, contacts, prayer in common, investigation of the treasures of human spirituality, in which, as we know well, the members of these religions also are not lacking” (Antipope John Paul II, Encyclical Redemptor Hominis, ch. 6; italics added). As being an admirer of the satanic Voodoo religion, John Paul II is someone who’d know all about participating in idolatrous worship!

We have posted a picture of the Pachamama goddess to the right. As you will notice, we could only give you a censored version, as the original is too indecent to be displayed. Hey, why would you adore the Most Holy Trinity — Father, Son, and Holy Ghost — who created, redeemed, and sanctified you, when you could be worshipping this thing instead, right?

Folks, the problem is ultimately not this or that “cardinal”, this or that “Pope”, “bishop” or other cleric — the problem is Vatican II, the false religion of man prepared by John XXIII and officially established by Paul VI. It has nothing to do with Roman Catholicism, and this fact alone proves beyond all doubt that the Vatican II Sect is not the Roman Catholic Church of Pope Pius XII and his predecessors.

We will end with a very pertinent, not-so-ecumenical passage from Holy Scripture in which the prophet Elias challenges the pagans to prove their false deity, while he, instead, will prove the reality of the True God. It didn’t end well for the pagans:

And Elias coming to all the people, said: How long do you halt between two sides? if the Lord be God, follow him: but if Baal, then follow him. And the people did not answer him a word. And Elias said again to the people: I only remain a prophet of the Lord: but the prophets of Baal are four hundred and fifty men. Let two bullocks be given us, and let them choose one bullock for themselves, and cut it in pieces and lay it upon wood, but put no fire under: and I will dress the other bullock, and lay it on wood, and put no fire under it. Call ye on the names of your gods, and I will call on the name of my Lord: and the God that shall answer by fire, let him be God. And all the people answering said: A very good proposal. Then Elias said to the prophets of Baal: Choose you one bullock and dress it first, because you are many: and call on the names of your gods, but put no fire under.

And they took the bullock which he gave them, and dressed it: and they called on the name of Baal from morning even till noon, saying: O Baal, hear us. But there was no voice, nor any that answered: and they leaped over the altar that they had made. And when it was now noon, Elias jested at them, saying: Cry with a louder voice: for he is a God, and perhaps he is talking, or is in an inn, or on a journey, or perhaps he is asleep, and must be awaked. So they cried with a loud voice, and cut themselves after their manner with knives and lancets, till they were all covered with blood. And after midday was past, and while they were prophesying, the time was come of offering sacrifice, and there was no voice heard, nor did any one answer, nor regard them as they prayed: Elias said to all the people: Come ye unto me. And the people coming near unto him, he repaired the altar of the Lord, that was broken down:

And he took twelve stones according to the number of the tribes of the sons of Jacob, to whom the word of the Lord came, saying: Israel shall be thy name. And he built with the stones an altar to the name of the Lord: and he made a trench for water, of the breadth of two furrows round about the altar. And he laid the wood in order, and cut the bullock in pieces, and laid it upon the wood. And he said: Fill four buckets with water, and pour it upon the burnt offering, and upon the wood. And again he said: Do the same the second time. And when they had done it the second time, he said: Do the same also the third time. And they did so the third time. And the water run round about the altar, and the trench was filled with water.

And when it was now time to offer the holocaust, Elias the prophet came near and said: O Lord God of Abraham, and Isaac, and Israel, shew this day that thou art the God of Israel, and I thy servant, and that according to thy commandment I have done all these things. Hear me, O Lord, hear me: that this people may learn, that thou art the Lord God, and that thou hast turned their heart again. Then the fire of the Lord fell, and consumed the holocaust, and the wood, and the stones, and the dust, and licked up the water that was in the trench. And when all the people saw this, they fell on their faces, and they said: The Lord he is God, the Lord he is God. And Elias said to them: Take the prophets of Baal, and let not one of them escape. And when they had taken them, Elias brought them down to the torrent Cison, and killed them there.

(3 Kings 18:21-40)

Clearly, Elias was pre-Vatican II.

Now let the Novus Ordo apostates worship their false gods and descend into hell if they insist; but as for us, let us serve the True God in faith, hope, and charity!

“But if it seem evil to you to serve the Lord, you have your choice: choose this day that which pleaseth you, whom you would rather serve, whether the gods which your fathers served in Mesopotamia, or the gods of the Amorrhites, in whose land you dwell: but as for me and my house we will serve the Lord” (Jos 24:15).

Chaos Frank strikes again...

A Perfect Fit: Empty-Hell Promoter “Fr.” Robert Barron appointed Auxiliary “Bishop” of Los Angeles


Photo credit: J.D. Long-Garcia (The Tidings)

Bad news for Michael Voris: Although he’s been carrying the water for “Pope” Francis from day one, systematically covering up the latter’s missteps, gaffes, errors, and heresies (what Voris would call Francis’ “nakedness”, cf. Gen 9:23), the Argentinian apostate is not showing himself very appreciative.

Today, July 21, 2015, the Vatican announced that Francis had appointed three new auxiliary “bishops” to the ultra-leftist Modernist archdiocese of Los Angeles — the devastated vineyard of the infamous quasi-Communist “Cardinal” Roger Mahony (served 1985-2011), currently under the “care” of “Archbishop” Jose Gomez. The three new auxiliaries named are: Joseph V. Brennan, David G. O’Connell, and Robert Barron.

Yes. That Robert Barron. The one that has given new respectability and renewed dissemination to the absurd and heretical idea that no one actually goes to hell and is happily in charge of Chicago’s Mundelein Seminary, in which future Novus Ordo priests are trained:

That’s the same Robert Barron who had this to say about the scandalous, porn-novel-producing leftist Fr. Andrew Greeley:

That’s the same Robert Barron whom Michael Voris has been blasting over and over again on his web site:

For Voris, this is not the first time he’s had egg on his face on account of his double standard with regard to Francis, whom he has been trying to spin into a conservative bulwark of orthodoxy from the beginning:

So, an empty hell? Who ever came up with that ridiculous idea? Although we do not know who in the last 2000 years first dreamed it up, its chief promoter and defender in more recent times was the Neo-Modernist proponent of the Nouvelle Theologie (“New Theology”) Fr. Hans Urs von Balthasar, a celebrated Swiss suit-and-tie priest who was rewarded for doing his part to undermine and destroy Roman Catholicism by none other than “Saint” John Paul II. Yes, “Pope” John Paul appointed von Balthasar a Novus Ordo cardinal in 1988. Too bad that Divine Providence saw to it that von Balthasar would die two days before actually receiving the red hat — and probably, we fear, descend into that very place he had vainly “hoped” was empty. This, by the way, was the same von Balthasar who once cried out that we must “raze the Catholic bastions” — a call happily repeated by that paragon of orthodoxy, Fr. Joseph Ratzinger (later “Pope” Benedict XVI).


A hell to which no one actually goes — what a great idea to promote, in a world that is filled with a sheer endless supply of the most horrifying sins and crimes: apostasy, heresy, satanism, naturalism, profanation of Sundays, the denial of the Social Kingship of Christ, murder, abortion and selling of harvested organs, human trafficking, the most savage tortures of men, women, and children, corruption and greed, pornography and the destruction of children’s innocence, killing of the elderly, disabled, and terminally ill, sodomy and its glorifcation by the secular powers, etc., etc., ad nauseam. Oh yeah, and gossip too (we mention this one so that Francis supporters can see how bad it really is)!

Our holy Lord Jesus Christ was very clear with regard to heaven and hell:

Enter ye in at the narrow gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way that leadeth to destruction, and many there are who go in thereat. How narrow is the gate, and strait is the way that leadeth to life: and few there are that find it! Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of sheep, but inwardly they are ravening wolves.

(Matthew 7:13-15)

How interesting that our Blessed Lord immediately followed up His teaching on the fewness of the saved with the warning against false prophets who are wolves but come in the clothing of sheep! Hello, is anyone listening?!

But does Francis agree with Barron’s blasphemous-heretical-fake “hope” that all will be saved? He certainly isn’t bothered by it [make surprise face here], but it seems that no, he does not agree: Instead, Francis is on the record saying that those who go to hell are simply annihilated, not punished eternally. Works for the mafia, pornographers, child molesters, abortionists, devil worshippers, and atheists — and for anyone else who doesn’t believe in an afterlife and/or glories in the most heinous sins. And while this is quite different from the Barron heresy, it too is heresy, and we’d say an even worse one (so to speak) than the one Barron proposes.


Don’t worry, no one goes there! Ask “Fr.” Barron!

So, for Voris and the crew at 
Church Disneyland Militant, the appointment of Mr. Barron as bogus auxiliary in Los Angeles comes as yet another kick in the shin. What will they do? Our prediction is that they will simply include this story, however reluctantly, in their daily news headlines, express some “surprise” perhaps or even make some remarks that could be taken as being mildly critical, but other than that, simply state that Barron was appointed and then move on. After all, there’s nothing to see here — it’s just one more day in the absurdistan of the Vatican II religion, currently shoved down your throat by Jorge Bergoglio. (UPDATE: The CMTV coverage of the Barron appointment can be found here.)

Voris, who endlessly denounces the “Church of Nice”, will not denounce its highest-ranking progenitor, enabler, and defender, the “Pope of Nice.” Sorry, Michael, but you cannot constantly cover for the biggest Modernist of them all and then claim credibility in fighting heresy. Our Lord said, “He that is not with me, is against me; and he that gathereth not with me, scattereth” (Lk 11:23). Looks like Michael Voris has made his choice, just like the future “Bishop” Barron.

Congratulations, “Pope” Francis. You have found the perfect man for Los Angeles. And by appointing him, you have ensured that hell will be populated with an additional plethora of souls for decades to come.


The brilliant theology of Richard Williamson...


Bishop Williamson: Novus Ordo “Mass” is Bad but OK if it “Nourishes your Faith”

We have long criticized the absurd, non-Catholic, and principle-less “theology” of the Lefebvrist Society of St. Pius X. How poor and bizarre it really is has just been demonstrated once again by none other than Bishop Richard Williamson, an Englishman consecrated by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre in 1988.

Although at this point no longer a part of the official SSPX, he is still very much part of the semi-traditionalist “resistance” against the Modernist Vatican that recognizes Francis and his five predecessors of infelicitous memory as legitimate — yet entirely ignorable — Roman Catholic Popes.

On June 28, 2015, Bp. Williamson was a speaker at a semi-trad conference held in Mahopcac, New York. The entire talk given by His Excellency has been posted in full and is available here (listen at your own risk):

At the end of the talk, there was a question-and-answer session at which Bp. Williamson was asked about assistance at the “New Mass”, that is, the 1969 Novus Ordo Missae Modernist worship service of “Pope” Paul VI. The bishop’s 10-minute response was a paragon of illogical SSPX mumbo-jumbo that was, not surprisingly, totally devoid of any discernible Catholic theological principles.

In fact, the answer Williamson gave was loaded with so many howlers and unsupported assertions that we thought it best to republish the video ourselves after adding our own comments as subtitles to the clip as the bishop is speaking. Give this is a try and see if you do not agree that Williamson’s ideas on assistance at the Novus Ordo Missae are a theological disaster the size of the Titanic:

In this video clip, you will notice that His Excellency really is “all over the place” with his answer. In fact, one may discover a certain similarity between his way of speaking and that of the Modernists, for both are unclear in their assertions, do not use objective criteria, and do not base their arguments on genuine Catholic theological principles.

In his answer, Bp. Williamson argues the following and then some:

  • The New Mass is a key part of the New Religion and the worldwide apostasy
  • Stay away from the New Mass!
  • You can go to the New Mass under certain circumstances
  • The New Mass is wrong as a whole
  • If it nourishes your Faith, you can go (this “seems” to be the “absolute rule of rules”)
  • You cannot cause scandal by going to the New Mass
  • Archbishop Lefebvre said the New Mass is a danger to the Faith
  • There are Eucharistic miracles in the New Mass
  • The New Religion, of which the New Mass is a key part, is dangerous and strangles grace
  • The New Mass can build your Faith
  • The New Mass does harm in itself
  • Decide for yourself
  • Ask a priest you trust and heed his advice — maybe
  • The rite of the New Mass was designed to get you away from the Catholic Faith
  • If you can trust your own judgment, use your own judgment
  • All of this is just his opinion and “almost heresy”
  • Maybe none of this should be said in public
  • Etc., ad nauseam

It is really sad to see how many souls “follow” Bp. Williamson and look up to him as a guiding light in these terrible times. Williamson is part of the problem. So much rubbish in 10 minutes! He does not clarify; he confuses. His answer is Yes and No and Maybe and Ask someone elseOne may perhaps summarize his answer in a way that reminds one of a typical American pharmaceutical commercial: “Talk to your trusted priest and find out if the Novus Ordo Mass is right for you.” Just be sure you understand the health risks and side effects. CAUTION! May be fatal.


Preaches Pragmatism and Subjectivism when it comes to the Novus Ordo Worship Service of the Conciliar Religion: “Traditional Catholic” Bishop Richard Williamson

The inconsistencies, the contradictions, the waffling, the arbitrary assertions without documentation, the refusal to employ the Catholic positive-scholastic theological method, all these are a recurring symptom in the Society of St. Pius X, the “official” one as well as the “Marian Corps” edition (aka “Strict Observance” or “Resistance”). In fact, at this point, we are still waiting for someone affiliated with the SSPX to answer the following challenge:

People who outsource their theological and spiritual health to Bp. Williamson are in big trouble. They may think they have escaped the errors of the Modernist Vatican II Sect, but in reality they are simply imbibing different (yet sometimes quite similar) errors instead. That is what you get when you follow people instead of Catholicism.

Have a look at our post on the Novus Ordo Missae and our critique of Louie Verrecchio, Mundabor, and “Fr.” Gregory Hesse to see what difference real Catholic theology makes:

Williamson has cleverly named his new apostolate the “St. Marcel Initiative”. Even though it is clearly dedicated to the third-century St. Marcel, nevertheless people will quickly fall for the idea — probably not unintended — that the saint in question is really Marcel Lefebvre, the founder of the SSPX and more or less the progenitor of the anti-sedevacantist resistance position that has completely distorted people’s understanding of the Church, the papacy, and the Magisterium.

The “New Springtime” in all its Glory:
“Resurrection Dance”


As proof that the Second Vatican Council truly ushered in a “New Springtime”, a “New Pentecost”, and a “Great Renewal”, we offer a video clip of an extraordinary “Resurrection Dance” performed at the hell-hole known as “Holy Spirit Chapel” at Newman Hall at the University of California at Berkeley.

For more information on this unholy place, see our post from last year in which we take a closer look at the “sanctuary” of this “Catholic chapel”:

This is also a good time to review the obsession the Vatican II Sect has with dancing in general and in particular with dancing to appeal — in a most corny way, to be sure — to the youth. Needless to say, although this may result in a fleeting sentimental high for some immature youngsters, it will provide nothing in terms of genuine spiritual growth or depth — to the contrary, as the following post shows:

The Novus Ordo Sect offers nothing substantial in terms of doctrine, morals, or spirituality — much less in terms of truth. It therefore busies itself with distracting people from this reality by offering them pseudo-spiritual “fast food” which will delight the senses for a short while and conceal from them the fact that before they realize it, a deadly poison will kick in.
