Salvation Through Piety Alone

Everyone is familiar with Luther’s heretical teaching known as salvation through faith alone. This means that the single act which is necessary for salvation is faith, which for him, and for protestants in general, means trust in God. For Catholics faith means the assent of the intellect, by means of a supernatural virtue infused by God, to the truths revealed by God and proposed as such by the teaching authority of the Roman Catholic Church. Therefore for Luther, and for those who follow him, sins do not count against you in the order of salvation. There is no need to mortify yourself. No need to do penance. Luther said: “Be a sinner and sin boldly, but believe and rejoice in Christ even more boldly…No sin will separate us from the Lamb, even though we commit fornication and murder a thousand times a day” [1]

Bergoglio Attacks “Restorationism”

In an interview with various Jesuit magazines, Bergoglio said that the current problem in the Church is “precisely the non-acceptance of the [Second Vatican] Council.” He singled out the United States as the hotbed of “restorationism,” as he called it. He even said that some of the restorationists actually consider the Council of Trent more important than the Second Vatican Council. (Imagine!)

This reminds me of the Emperor Nero who himself set fire to Rome, in the opinion of many historians, in order to build his Golden House, next to the Coliseum.

As the story goes, he fiddled while Rome burned. Then fearful that he would be accused of having set the fire, he decided to blame the setting of the fire on the Christians, then a tiny group in Rome, and put many of them to death, including St. Peter and St. Paul.

By analogy, Rome is burning, that is, the entire Church is collapsing from the point of view of the Catholic faith of the clergy and the people. It is in shambles. Yet the problem is not Vatican II. No. The problem is the restorationists! [1]

Who set the fire? The Modernists. The Church was doing fine under Pius XII. Since Vatican II, it has been reduced to rubble in every aspect of its existence, and shows itself to be a dying organization. Is Vatican II the cause? Of course not. For Bergoglio, what we need is more Vatican II, and that will solve the problem.

Pride Month

Last month we had to endure the so called “Pride Month” in which persons who are addicted to the sin of sodomy, or who are inclined to it, take pride in what is a serious disorder.

The inclination to perform unnatural sex acts is a serious disorder because it provides a penchant in someone to perform, and indeed become addicted to, very serious mortal sins.

Censorship


There has been much talk about censorship recently, and the conservative side has taken a strong position against it.

In reality, however, censorship of error is not only good, but necessary. Governments which defended traditional morals and ways of life always used censorship to repress the leftist, socialist, and communist propaganda. This was especially true in the nineteenth century.

Yet Another Heresy From Heresy-Mouth


Bergoglio gives a reflection on the communion of saints, which is, of course a dogma of the Catholic Faith. So we are definitely in the area of heresy here. He says that the communion of saints is the Church, but gives it an unheard of meaning: “The Church is the community of saved sinners. It’s beautiful, this definition. No one can exclude themselves [sic] from the Church, we are all saved sinners.”

Bergoglio Calls Adhering to Tradition a Perversion


On February 2nd, Bergoglio said this in a homily: “We cannot pretend not to see these signs and continue as if nothing had happened, repeating the same old things, dragging ourselves through inertia into the forms of the past, paralyzed by fear of change. I have said it many times: today, the temptation to go backwards, out of security, out of fear, to preserve the faith, to preserve the founding charism… It is a temptation. The temptation to go backwards and preserve “traditions” with rigidity. Let’s get this straight: rigidity is a perversion, and underneath all rigidity there are serious problems.”

January 6th


Much ado was made by the leftists about the events of January 6th of last year. They shuddered for indignation. What a terrible crime that the Right committed!

Let it be said first that it was not at all a good idea that the demonstrators enter the Capitol building. It was far worse that some of them actually stole things that belonged to the members of Congress. Such acts did absolutely no good for the cause of protesting the probable election fraud that took place in November. Indeed, the whole event played into the hands of the Left.

The Pre-1955 Holy Week

Annibale Bugnini

As our people know, we reject the use of the new Holy Week rites which were designed by the freemason and archmodernist Annibale Bugnini, and, sadly, approved for use by Pope Pius XII.

We receive a good deal of heat for rejecting rites which were approved by a real pope. The reasons, however, are obvious. The Modernists planned the New Mass from the time of Benedict XV. They worked very gradually and quietly, step by step, spoon-feeding the hierarchy, clergy, and lay people with the implementation of minor but very significant changes.
