Holy Innocents

This year we recall the Holy Innocents in more ways than one. Besides the upcoming feast, I'm thinking of the evil lunatic in nearby Newtown, Conn. who murdered 20 innocent little children in cold blood December 14. I hope the irony wasn't lost on everyone as Obama cried. Everyone is screaming for gun control and how horrible the violence is, yet on January 22 we will have the 40th anniversary of legalized murder by abortion since Roe v Wade was decided in 1973. Over 45 million innocents have been killed. Where are Resident Obama's crocodile tears for them? Oh, I remember, whether or nor pre-born life is human is "above his pay grade." Good thing Lincoln didn't say the same thing about African-Americans.

The desensitization to the sacredness of human life has made all these killings possible. Not just violent games and TV/movies, but the toleration of abortion and euthanasia as a "choice." Life is cheap. What message does the Vatican II sect send when Mr. Dolan, the so-called "archbishop" of NY invites Obama to the Al Smith pro-life dinner? What message when Ratzinger calls from the Vatican to "congratulate him" on winning another term of killing children? What message when the so-called "bishop" of Albany gives baby-killer and adulterer Gov Andrew Cuomo "communion" ; the same man who pushed through the"marriage" of sodomites--violence against nature itself. Let's not even discuss what the Vatican II hierarchy has been doing to children themselves.

When the hierarchy defected from the Faith during Vatican II, and replaced the Holy Sacrifice and Sacraments with invalid counterfeits, God's Grace has been lessened and we see the results. Their actions speak louder than words. My friends, God will not and has not abandoned His One True Church--we Traditionalists keep Her alive and the grace flowing from the True Mass and Sacraments! You can have a Merry Christmas because, as the name implies, we still have Christ's Mass, and His Real Presence.

May God Have Mercy on us all this Christmas Season,

Even The Heretics Know It's A New Religion

The National "Catholic" Reporter published an article this month entitled "Attempt to resurrect pre-Vatican II Mass leaves church at crossroads." Written by an invalidly ordained "priest" who is honest enough to just call himself Ron Schmit without the title, he implicitly understands that you can't be Catholic and accept Vatican II.

He writes:
It was curiosity and a sense of irony that moved me to open the Oct. 1 issue of our diocesan newspaper. On the cover was the headline "Moving Forward in Faith" next to a picture of our former bishop vested as would be a prelate from more than 50 years ago. This was a photo from a liturgy in the "extraordinary form" (pre-Vatican II 1962 Latin Mass), welcoming a group of very traditional Carmelite nuns to the diocese.

Lately, there seems to be an increasing interest in this "extraordinary form" in our diocesan paper and among some of our clergy. In the past my attitude has been "so what." If people are into antiquarianism, let them. Some people like to spend weekends reenacting the Civil War. They dress in period costume. They stage mock battles of Union and Confederate soldiers. It's a harmless hobby. I just figured that the people attached to this "extraordinary form" were the liturgical version of societies for anachronistic re-enactment.
Ironically, Ron accuses those that have at least some vestiges of the Catholic Faith of wanting to "return to the past." He doesn't realize that it was the excuse of the Modernists at Vatican II to return the "liturgy" to a more ancient form and it was CONDEMNED beforehand by Pope Pius XII in his Encyclical Mediator Dei:
 "Assuredly it is a wise and most laudable thing to return in spirit and affection to the sources of the sacred liturgy. For research in this field of study, by tracing it back to its origins, contributes valuable assistance towards a more thorough and careful investigation of the significance of feast-days, and of the meaning of the texts and sacred ceremonies employed on their occasion. But it is neither wise nor laudable to reduce everything to antiquity by every possible device. Thus, to cite some instances, one would be straying from the straight path were he to wish the altar restored to its primitive tableform; were he to want black excluded as a color for the liturgical vestments; were he to forbid the use of sacred images and statues in Churches; were he to order the crucifix so designed that the divine Redeemer's body shows no trace of His cruel sufferings; and lastly were he to disdain and reject polyphonic music or singing in parts, even where it conforms to regulations issued by the Holy See."

Ron continues:

However, I have come to change my opinion. Those attached to the extraordinary form are not like Civil War re-enactment societies. At least those people know they are play-acting about a time that can never return. The people attached to the extraordinary form are seriously trying to enact a particular worldview and understanding of church. And it is an understanding that we left behind at the Second Vatican Council. It is a worldview that is incompatible with the council.

Bravo Ronnnie!! Indeed the Holy Sacrifice is incompatible with the Novus Bogus "Happy Meal" of Vatican II. The understanding of the Church (known as "ecclesiology") is contradictory pre- and post- Vatican II. So much for Ratzinger's "no rupture with the past" and the pseudo-Traditionalists of the SSPX and John Venneri types who think we can read heresy "in light of Tradition."

Liturgy is not about taste or aesthetics. It is how the church defines itself. Those who rejected Vatican II and its liturgy were the first to understand the connection between liturgy and our self-understanding as church.
Right again Ronnie!!
The attempt to resurrect and popularize the 1962 pre-Vatican II Mass has serious ramifications. Will we be a church that looks narrowly inward -- where God is found only in piety and private devotion, or will we be a church as Vatican II defined it -- a Spirit-filled people on fire with an urgent sense of mission? We are at a crossroads. The extraordinary form is incapable of activating us as the priestly people of God -- the vision of Vatican II. Which path will we follow?
So, what is this "Spirit filled mission"? Empty convents and rectories with pedophiles on the prowl? The True Mass gave us, through thic piety and devotion ---as Pope Pius XII taught:
Certainly the loving Mother [the Church] is spotless in the Sacraments, by which she gives birth to and nourishes her children; in the faith which she has always preserved inviolate; in her sacred laws imposed on all; in the evangelical counsels which she recommends; in those heavenly gifts and extraordinary graces through which, with inexhaustible fecundity, she generates hosts of martyrs, virgins and confessors.”Pope Pius XII, Encyclical Mystici Corporis, par. 66 (1943):

Ron finishes with

The feisty, joyful perseverance of St. Teresa of Avila is reflected in one of my favorite quotes of hers: "From sour-faced saints and silly devotions, good Lord, preserve us!" Amen.

Notice what he refers to as a "silly devotion"; the True Mass which the Council of Trent dogmatically declared in Canon 7: "If anyone says that the ceremonies, vestments, and outward signs which the Catholic Church uses in the celebration of masses, are incentives to impiety rather than stimulants to piety, let him be anathema." 
Let our prayer be "Libera nos a malo. Amen" (But deliver us from evil. Amen)

You Thought Ratzinger would Appoint a Catholic? That Would Be a Miracle!

                                        Another Modernist Punk

Ratzinger's #2 Modernist in charge of the Sacred Congregation for the Destruction of What's Left of the Faith is another Anti-Supernaturalist heretic. Here is an except from the blog "Catholic Church Conservation" that summarizes the situation well. Unfortunately, the blogger recognizes the heresy, yet doesn't draw the only logical conclusion, namely, since the True Church can't teach heresy, Ratzinger and his "hierarchy" have no authority and have defected by forming a new and false religious sect.

If it would agree with what the Archbishop (sic)  Gerhard Ludwig Müller maintains, Christianity would be mocking the audience. Archbishop (sic) Gerhard Ludwig Müller - the prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith recently appointed by Pope (sic) Benedict XVI - not only has problems with the virginity of Mary, the Eucharist and the doctrine of the Church. In his rambling book "Catholic dogma: to study and practice theology" (4th edition 1995) there are at least three more points that involve serious heresies.
Denial of miracles
On the topic "miracle" Mgr. Müller writes on page 284: " The miracles of Jesus are not to be understood in the context of a definition, which is concerns a 'breaking of the laws of nature'." Such an understanding of miracles according to Msgr. Müller belongs "to the context of a deistic understanding of God and a mechanistic world view."
What constitutes a miracle?
A breaking of the laws of nature is of the essence of miracle. This was already maintained by the preeminent theologian Saint Thomas Aquinas († 1274). In a miracle, God acts directly on the world as first cause . He bypasses thus the secondary causes - that is, the laws of nature.
Msgr. Müller is a mechanical deist
Mons. Müller insulted the Catholic understanding of miracles indiscriminately as "deistic" and "mechanistic". The opposite is true. This is because deism is the doctrine that God created the universe at the beginning and set it going like clockwork, not interfering in its further mechanistic working - neither by miracle nor by revelation. The qualification "deistic" and "mechanistic" hypothesis thus precisely correspond to Mons.Müller's denial of the miracle.
One heresy cries out after another
Archbishop Müller's inability to understand miracles, influences his dubious statements about the Virginal conception of Jesus and the Resurrection of the dead. In both events, the Bible as well as the tradition of Church sees a classical breaking of the known laws of nature.
The guardian of Faith denies the conception by the Holy Spirit
On page 495 of his Dogmatik, Mons. Müller discusses the virginity of Mary. This, he writes. "This does not mean a departure from the biological norm" . This assertion is related explicitly to the "conception" of Jesus and the virginity of the Virgin Mary before the birth. Mary's virginity during labour Mons. Müller disputes on page 498 of his Dogmatics. There he claims that in the case of Mary's virginity during the birth, is "not" about deviating physiological features in the "natural process of birth." "Not in the context of a biologically exceptional case" On page 497, Mons. Müller closes his remarks on the virginity before birth. He again emphasized: "The meaning of faith in the virginal conception of Jesus by the Holy Spirit does not reveal itself in the context of a biologically exceptional case."  
Invisible body?
Msgr. Müller in his Dogmatik on page 300 comments on the Resurrection of Jesus with this questionable assertion: "The contemporary film camera would have neither recorded the resurrection event [...] nor the Easter appearances of Jesus to his disciples in image and sound ." And on page 303: "Whether the response of women at the grave in the early hours of Easter morning and the discovery that the body of Jesus was no longer there, a historical process in the sense described must not be decided here. It could also reflect a devotion to the grave by the Jerusalem assembly."
He does not believe in the bodily resurrection
On the other hand, writes Msgr. Müller: "In any case, the mighty deed of God must have been implied in Jesus and on the dead body." Because. "A finding of the body of Jesus would have been for the enemies of Jesus, stringent counter-evidence against the identification of God with the eschatological means of salvation" One wonders here: What now? Did Jesus rise bodily or not? Mons. Müller's statements contradict each other. But, given his thesis that Jesus' miracles do not break the laws of nature, he must answer in the negative.

Throwing Out The Supernatural; A Logical Leap Into Heresy

 In his most recent book, Joseph Ratzinger, aka "Pope" Benedict XVI, declares that there is no evidence in that angels sang at the Christ child's birth. Although a common prop in Christmas stories and songs, the Scriptures do not mention it. The Bible doesn't mention many things, but there are TWO sources of Divine Revelation, Scripture and Tradition. Ratzinger, in true Modernist fashion wants to "de-mythologize" the Bible and Tradition, which means miracles and any mention of the Supernatural must be eliminated or explained away. As Bishop Sanborn puts it:

Likewise Ratzinger denies the dogma of the general resurrection from the dead. In  Introduction to Christianity, he says:

“It now becomes clear that the real heart of faith in the resurrection does not consist at all in the idea of the restoration of bodies.” (page 349) Referring to the biblical pronouncements concerning the general resurrection, he says:“Their essential content is not the conception of a restoration of bodies to souls after a long interval…” (page 353) “This resurrection [of the body] would also imply — or so it seems at any rate — a new heaven and a new earth; it would require immortal bodies needing no sustenance and a completely different condition of matter. But is this not all completely absurd, quite contrary to our understanding
of matter and its modes of behavior, and therefore hopelessly mythological?” (page 348)

Really? St. Peter did not find the idea of a new heaven and earth “completely absurd,” as Ratzinger does, for he says in his Second Epistle: “Looking for and hasting unto the coming of the day of the Lord, by which the heavens being on fire shall be dissolved,and the elements shall melt with the burning heat? But we look for new heavens and a new earth according to his promises, in which justice dwelleth.” (III:12-13)

What is the teaching of the Catholic Church? It does not findthe resurrection of the body to be “hopelessly mythological.” The Second Council of Lyons, held in 1274, teaches:

“The same most holy Roman Church firmly believes and firmly declares that on the day of judgement all men will be brought together with their bodies before the tribunal of Christ to render an account of their own deeds.”

This is solemn magisterium. The denial of it would be heresy.

You do the logic.

Don't Punish Murder?

"Bishop" Raul Vera Lopez of the Concillar Diocese of Saltillo, Mexico is under "investigation" by Ratzinger for supporting groups that want legalized abortion and "marriage" for sodomites. In an interview for, Vera Lopez defended his pro-abortion stance as follows:

“What might be subject to debate is the penalization or non-penalization, and do you know why? Because of the frightful failures we have in Mexico in the judicial process. And they have imprisoned indigenous women for miscarriages, they have imprisoned them, there, in the state of Guanajuato, indigenous women who have had miscarriages, and they are in jail.”
“So, knowing the type of justice system we have in Mexico, and that they are going to manage that, for that reason we…I personally have never entered into a discussion about that, never have entered, never have entered.”

Vera López repeated his contention that women have been imprisoned in Guanajuato for miscarriages later in the interview. This reporter observed that pro-abortion organizations had accused the government of imprisoning women for miscarriages, but in fact (in accordance with the evidence presented at their trials) the women had killed their babies following birth at full gestation.  The bishop claimed that he knew nothing about those cases, and insisted that women had been imprisoned in Guanajuato for miscarriages.

Asked about the new Catechism of the Catholic Church’s teaching that abortion should be prohibited by law, the bishop claimed that the if the Church evangelized people properly, the government’s laws would be of no concern. He repeated his contention that it was not pro-abortion to advocate the depenalization of abortion."

So there you have it. It is not pro-abortion to advocate the depenalization of abortion! Let's ask Mr. Vera Lopez "Would it be considered moral and not anti-Semetic to legalize the genocide of the Jews as long as we personally recognize it as murder?" What a joke. What will Ratzinger do? Nothing of course!! It's not as if he called into question Vatican II or refused to say the Novus Ordo "Mass"! To understand the Vatican II sect, you must first abandon all logic and then get your priorities straight.

Is Sedevacantism Delusional?

A reader has written the following on my post of "Is Sedevacantism Heretical?"

"Introibo you have posted rubbish! The heretical position of the sedevacantist is that the Church is going through a great apostasy! Well, this contradicts the very words of scripture..."I will be with you all days...unto the consummation of the world"...the world has not been consumed and our Lord is still with is His Church, which is indefectable and will stand for all time! No where in scripture is a great apostasy within the church mentioned ANYWHERE...not even prophetically or literally. Quite the contrary is mentioned...our Lord says that "wolves will get into the fold"...these are heresyarchs...who have names and obvious agendas. One is to confuse and poison the mind of believers that we are living in a time of apostasy, that the sedevacantists have created! This is in contradiction to scripture and the teachings of Holy Mother Church...who, on matters of faith and morals is it must be, in order for the members of the Church to understand what she teaches, in order for us to save our souls... You my friend are not only delusional, but you are a heretic"

I've already dealt with the absurdity of sedevacantism as heresy. So, my opponent's unproven assertion that it is “delusional” to believe that the overwhelming majority of Catholics might one day end up adhering to a false pope, I respond with the teaching of the theologian Father Sylvester Berry:

“The prophecies of the Apocalypse show that Satan will imitate the Church of Christ to deceive mankind; he will set up a church of Satan in opposition to the Church of Christ. Antichrist will assume the role of Messias; his prophet will act the part of Pope, and there will be imitations of the Sacraments of the Church. There will also be lying wonders in imitation of the miracles wrought in the Church.” (The Church of Christ, 119)

“There seems to be no reason why a false Church might not become universal, even more universal than the true one, at least for a time.” (ibid. 155) An ecumenical Super-Church with a false pope? Imitation sacraments? Lying wonders? The faithful reduced to a remnant? After four decades of the Vatican II disaster, how absurd and delusional does that sound?

It is precisely because I believe in the Indefectibility of the Church that I'm a sedevacantist (True Catholic). The Church CAN NOT GIVE EVIL. However, the teachings of the post-Vatican II sect contradict word for word prior Magisterial teachings on what is good and true. Therefore, either (a) the Church defected OR (b) the hierarchy defected and lost authority; the True Church remaining with the Traditionalists. It is through us that His promise to be with us all days stands confirmed.

The Devil Made Him Do It? When the Exorcist Needs An Exorcism

According to the newswire:"A Virginia woman who claims a priest sexually abused her while performing an exorcism is suing a Catholic diocese and an anti-abortion group for $5.3 million in damages. The woman claims the Rev. Thomas Euteneuer abused her between April 2008 and September 2010, according to the suit filed in Virginia's Arlington County Circuit Court. The suit names as defendants the Catholic Diocese of Arlington and its bishop, Paul Loverde, as well as the anti-abortion group Human Life International and HLI Endowment Inc. Euteneuer had been transferred from the Diocese of Palm Beach, Florida, to serve as president of Human Life International and HLI Endowment in 2000. He resigned in August 2010. The woman, identified in the suit as Jane Doe, said she signed an "agreement for spiritual help" with Euteneuer in February 2008 because "she believed she was in desperate need of the rite of exorcism," the suit said. Euteneuer repeatedly hugged, kissed and groped the woman, and said he was "blowing the Holy Spirit into her," according to the suit, which was filed on June 19. Euteneuer told the woman to undress on about six occasions, touched and kissed her body, and put his finger in her vagina, court documents said. The suit alleges that Loverde and the Diocese of Arlington knew Euteneuer would perform an exorcism on the woman. Asked about the suit, the Diocese of Arlington said Euteneuer had never been its employee. He worked for Human Life International, an independent company, subject to his bishop in Palm Beach, it said. "Rev. Euteneuer was not authorized to perform an exorcism on the plaintiff," it said in a statement, adding that the diocese had its own exorcist. The woman's attorney, Demetrios Pikrallidas, said Euteneuer was not named as a defendant because he had reached a private settlement with her. Dianne Laubert, a spokeswoman for the Diocese of Palm Beach, said Euteneuer had been recalled when the allegations surfaced. His "priestly faculties" were withdrawn and he can no longer celebrate Mass or administer sacraments, she said. The woman is seeking $5 million in compensatory damages and $350,000 in punitive damages. Euteneuer's behavior "was never within the scope of his employment with" Human Life International, the anti-abortion group said in a statement. "We intend to vigorously defend HLI from the false accusations made against it." There you have it folks. The woman was obviously demented. How else would you explain disrobing and allowing yourself to be fondled and thinking it has something to do with exorcism? Or is it that the Vatican II sect has gone so crazy in its operations, such bizzare requests could be construed as sane? If you think someone is possessed, get a Traditionalist Priest. If not, better to "exorcise at home" than let a Vatican II "priest" anywhere near someone about whom you care.

Failure to Recognize Means Resistance Is Futile

The Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) is what I have always called "pseudo-Traditionalist." By recognizing Ratzinger as pope, but refusing to submit, they set themselves up in a strange situation where they decide what to obey from the Vatican, and what they will not obey. This is totally un-Catholic and leads logically to the sell-out to Ratzinger expected by the end of the month. Their General Superior, Bishop Bernard Fellay, is ready to hand over the SSPX to Ratzinger, Judas-style. The other three bishops (Tisser, Galeretta, Williamson), have balked. Now what? Some observations made by Traditionalist Bishop Sanborn : The Society of Saint Pius X does not offer a Catholic solution, since on the one hand they recognize Benedict XVI as a true Catholic pope, but on the other hand they completely ignore him. In this they are like the Jansenists, Gallicans, Feeneyites and other sects who have acted similarly. If Benedict XVI is the Pope, then he must be obeyed. His teachings and his disciplines must be accepted. It is hypocritical to accept his authority but to obey him in virtually nothing. The only Catholic solution is to reject Vatican I I and its changes as contrary to the previous teaching of the Catholic Church, and to reject as non-Catholic and as non-popes those who have given us these poisonous changes. Only in this way does the Catholic preserve both the indefectibility of the Catholic Church and the identity of faith, discipline, and worship with its glorious past. The only Catholic solution to the intruding heretic who has penetrated into an apparent position of authority is to declare him anathema Having failed to do so, the SSPX will sooner or later have to give in to the man they claim is pope. How can it remain in limbo forever? Their whole reason to exist is to have a seat in Ratzinger's Frankenchurch--a one world religion of abomination---as long as they can interpret Vatican II in the "light of Tradition." Alas, no amount of light can help one to see heresy as Truth. You're spiritually blind. And the SSPX will soon find themselves with the last vestiges of Catholicism destroyed and their Rites made invalid, as new "bishops" of the Vatican II sect start to "ordain" their "priests" and consecrate new "bishops"--just like what happened in 2002 with the sell-out in Campos. Unless they recognize the empty chair of Peter, they will soon have an empty tabernacle, and join with Ratzinger on the road to perdition full speed ahead.
