AGAINST MENTEVACANTISM

empty_head

Bergoglio is doing and saying so many non-Catholic things that the Novus Ordo conservatives, and really all that regard him as a true pope, are practically going insane in order to find solutions in some way to keep him as the “pope.” It is hardly necessary any more to make an argument about Bergoglio’s abandonment of Roman Catholicism. The Bergoglio-ites, therefore, must take refuge in some principle which protects him from the attacks of the sedevacantists.

CHRIST OR BELIAL?

A Response to Bishop Williamson concerning Attendance at the New Mass

Bp. Williamson

Bp. Williamson

On June 28th of this year, Bishop Williamson gave a conference to a gathering of people in Connecticut, followed by questions and answers.[1]

A woman asked him whether it was permissible to attend the New Mass.[2] Bishop Williamson says that, under certain circumstances, it is permissible to actively participate in the New Mass.

Here I will analyze his answer. I must quote him heavily, since I do not want to misrepresent his position in any way by presenting merely a few selected comments.

Can we go to the una cum Mass in a pinch?

The Canon of the Mass

The Canon of the Mass

   Many Catholics have come to understand that active participation in a Mass which is una cum, that is, in which the name of the Modernist “pope” or “local bishop” is placed in the canon, is a sin.

   Father Cekada wrote the definitive article on the subject a few years ago, laying out all of the theological points why such an act is contrary to the First Commandment.

   Ultimately it boils down to the principle of offering false worship to God. For in order that a Mass be Catholic, and therefore acceptable to God as true worship, it must be offered in persona Ecclesiæ (in the person of the Church) by the priest who is offering it. This means that his act of offering the Mass must be in union with the Catholic Church, which is the Mystical Body of Christ, of which Christ is the Head.

Francis is not the problem

Francis waves

   *   *   *

   All are shocked, as I am, by Francis’ approval of adultery and sodomy. In so doing, he has exceeded everyone’s expectations, and has opened a whole new world for the Novus Ordo, a world that they cannot change.

   This bold and shameless violation of the natural law has caused a significant uptick in interest in sedevacantism. The reason is very simple. Continue reading

Pope-sifting

[Previously published post, now available here]

   An objection has been made to my recent response to Bishop Williamson. It is an objection frequently made against sedevacantists. It objects that sedevacantists cannot criticize the SSPX for sifting the magisterium, since they themselves are sifting popes. By finding a discrepancy between pre-Vatican II magisterium and post-Vatican II magisterium, sedevacantists merely depose popes whom they find wanting in orthodoxy. But they have no authority to do so. So while sedevacantists object to “magisterium-sifting,” they themselves are involved in “pope-sifting,” which is the same thing. Continue reading

Anti-Modernist Reader

Dear fellow Catholics,

I draw your attention today to a project which is important for a better understanding of the Church’s struggle with the Modernist heresy since Vatican II.

True Restoration, which is the entity that has diffused throughout the entire world, through an internet radio show, a wealth of both information concerning our Faith and poignant critiques concerning the Modernists, wants to publish something called the Anti-Modernist Reader. Continue reading

On Ukraine

Déjà vu

Déjà vu

On August 4th, we observed the 100th anniversary of World War I, a war which mankind had never seen before and has not seen since.

Although World War II was more widespread and devastating, nonetheless World War I was more brutal and had much deeper consequences than World War II.

It is ironic that we find ourselves now, one hundred years later, in a situation very close to what it was in 1914. For the great powers of the world are lined up against one another because of a tiny conflict in a relatively small and weak country.

Here I do not wish to take a side in this internecine conflict in Ukraine. I simply want to point out a few inconsistencies.
