    For the last several weeks, the Lepanto Institute has been investigating and reporting on a heretical priestly organization called the Association of United States Catholic Priests (AUSCP). This organization promotes women’s ordination to the diaconate (with eyes on the priestly ordination of women), homosexuality, priestless parishes, married priests, and a host of other heterodox positions.If you’re interested in having a better understanding of this international movement to spread heresy throughout the Church, previous Lepanto Institute reports on the AUSCP include the following: AUSCP’s Plan for Ordained Women and Priestless parishes Wester Participating in AUSCP ConferenceAUSCP’s Desire to Obtain Funding from...

    The Second Vatican Council Is Problematic Itself – Bishop Schneider Bishop Athanasius Schneider has spoken out what everybody knows: The Second Vatican Council (1962-1965) was not only wrong interpreted but there are “some problematic affirmations of the Council itself”. Talking to (July 6), Schneider criticises “ambiguous formulations” in the Council’s texts from where “a lot of errors" are now arising. Talking about the upcoming Synod on the Youth, Schneider fears that the Vatican's working document “accepted the propaganda terminology" of gay ideology. This is “contrary to sane reason and to the revealed law of God”, Schneider adds. He fears...

(NCR photo/Dan Morris-Young) Albuquerque, N.M. — More than 200 participants at the annual assembly of the Association of U.S. Catholic Priests (AUSCP) June 25-28 here heard calls for the church to focus on young Catholics, embrace the pastoral theology of Pope Francis, and affirm the Second Vatican Council's theological spadework. During two business sessions, the attendees — the vast...

    ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Pope Francis has launched a wonderful pastoral moment that is “unfolding with a new depth” in the life of the Church, San Diego Bishop Robert McElroy told members of a progressive priests’ organization here that was founded in 2011. “The emergence of this pastoral theology” in the last five years is like the spirit of change in the years leading up to Vatican II, McElroy told more than 200 people, mainly priests, attending the seventh annual national conference of the Association of U.S. Catholic Priests (AUSCP) meeting from June 25-28 ( here in New Mexico. The gathering’s...
  • The Irish Abortion Referendum: But How?

    What Oliver Cromwell could not do, what an Gorta Mór (the Great Hunger) could not do, what hundreds of years of Anglo-Protestant persecution could not do to the Irish Catholic people — namely, rob them of their faith and morals — the one-two punch of the sexual revolution and the doctrinal-liturgical revolution in the Church have accomplished, with the more-or-less enthusiastic complicity of the Irish people themselves, clergy and laity. Joe Doyle, our 100% Irish go-to man on all questions Hibernian, has compiled a sad and sorrowful litany of this national apostasy, as well as a summary of its most recent...

    Ladies and gentlemen,It looks as if the Republic of Ireland has – very decisively – decided to vote down the 8th Amendment and so withdrawn protection from the most vulnerable of all Irish citizens – the unborn. has, after holding out for many years, finally decided to join the mainland European rush to self-immolation.What is worse is that, in most countries, abortion was imposed by the judicial and/or legislative elite whereas Ireland’s own people have chosen this route, themselves, by referendum.It is tempting to say “I told you so – this is the end result of their infernal rebellion, murderous civil...

    The Worse Than Useless “Council of Cardinals”Another Vaunted Reform Disintegrates The post-Vatican II epoch has been marked by a series of unprecedented ecclesial “reforms” hailed as the harbingers of a new “springtime” for the Church when in truth they were only signs of what Cardinal Ratzinger admitted is “a continuing process of decay that has gone on largely on the basis of appeals to the Council, and thus has discredited the Council in the eyes of many people.”So it is with the vaunted “Council of Cardinals” established by Pope Francis shortly after his election.  As Sandro Magister notes, this “Council of Eight,” which...

    Last year, anno Domini 2017, was truly historic in many ways. Although it did not meet the expectations of some in regard to apocalyptic signs, the Fatima Centenary featured a host of significant happenings in the Church and the world, in general. Dubbed “a year of disaster” by CNBC, 2017 witnessed a variety of devastating natural disasters across the globe: flooding, hurricanes, earthquakes, mudslides, and wildfires, to name a few. For the Church, it could appropriately be styled the “year of resistance” – that is, of resisting Pope Francis “to the face” (Gal. 2:11).The first notable example that comes to mind...

    Monsignor Antonio Livi, a professor of philosophy and former dean at the Lateran University in Rome, has made some incisive and strong statements concerning the papacy of Pope Francis. He claims that this pope was put into his office in order to protestantize the Church; he says that the pope is putting “the worst heretics” at the top of the Church; and he also states that the post-conciliar popes all had sympathies for neo-Modernism. Monsignor Livi made these statements in an interview with – whose content published in English in three installments, from 25 April until 10 May...

    Let us pick up here on a thought by Mundabor. In his post, No Rest for the Wicked, he writes; "Some FrancisShills have started to promote some sort of “truce” concerning the way this disgraceful Pontiff is treated by bloggers." I've seen these calls as well. No. not at all, no truce, no peace, no letting up on exposing the corruption of Jorge Bergoglio. There will be no relaxation on the reporting of the manipulation of his election, which may ultimately be invalidated and he declared an Antipope. No retreat on exposing his evil ideology of globalism, communism and Masonic...

    Coming out in a few weeks is yet another good book criticizing Pope Francis for changing the Catholic Church. This one comes from even more prominent origins than the previous ones we have discussed at OnePeterFive: Ross Douthat, columnist at the New York Times. Douthat’s book, titled To Change the Church: Pope Francis and the Future of Catholicism, covers much of the last five controversial years and contains many insights about the deeper reasons for our current crisis and how we got there. Douthat’s underlying thesis is that the modern Catholic Church is coming increasingly under pressure to adapt to...

    A Case Study of Rupture in the Lex Orandi: The Epistles of Lenten Sundays One of the most striking areas of rupture and discontinuity between the traditional Latin Mass and the Mass of Paul VI is to be found in the passages of Scripture read on Sundays. The annual cycle of the old Missal, embodying the practice of well over a millennium, puts before the Christian people year after year essential truths of the spiritual life and fundamentals of morality to which we must always return. The three-year cycle of the new Mass, an unprecedented novelty against the backdrop of...

    Gregory Baum, heretical ex-priest In case you weren’t convinced that Vatican II was plagued from its inception with a demonic spirit, how about the fact that the writer of Nostra Aetate was concealing his gay lifestyle and flatly rejected the Church’s teaching on sexuality and non-Catholic relations?  (LifeSiteNews) — 93-year-old Gregory Baum, a famed Canadian Catholic ex-priest, has in his latest book revealed that he secretly led an active homosexual life for decades.Baum, who was a peritus or expert at the Second Vatican Council, reportedly composed the first draft of the conciliar document Nostra aetate, the Declaration on the Relation of the Church with Non-Christian...

    Let us try to find something, in a way, positive in what is happening in the Church.Francis has brought things to a level where it is not possible anymore to deny the direct, unequivocal causal link between V II and the current madness. At this point, the game of deception played for several decades since the early Sixties is up.Francis and his successors will try to let this deception go on for as long as they can; but year after year the link between FrancisChurch and V II will become more obvious. At that point, V II will be mortally...

    Guest Op-Ed: Remaining faithful to Christ By Veronica A. Arntz Highlights from Cardinal Sarah and Fr. Thomas Weinandy This past week, there were two announcements about pieces of literature that left the liberals quaking (and complaining loudly). The first is a preface, written by Cardinal Robert Sarah, for a new book on Communion, who called for a return to receiving Communion on the tongue while kneeling, rather than in the hands while standing. While many readers of this blog already follow this request, we should rejoice at this call for greater reverence. The second is an address, which was given by...

    Once again, Fr. Pio Pace, an expert in Romanitas, gives us his opinion on a present topic: now, the astonishing canonization of Paul VI. *** Paul VI: a "Pastoral" canonization? Fr. Pio Pace Perhaps Paul VI had remarkable and heroic virtues in his private and secret life. But, as Pope, he is the object of not little debate: he promulgated the most liberal texts of the Council (Gaudium et Spes, Unitatis Redintegratio, Nostra Aetate, Dignitatis Humanae); he led a liturgical reform that turned sacred liturgy upside down and inside out; and several other things, big and small, such as the...

    Both the Neo-Catholic World and certain Traditionalists are in shock this morning after reading that the German bishops will allow Protestant spouses of Catholics to receive Holy Communion. As National Catholic Register reporter, Edward Pentin, writes: At their spring conference in Ingolstadt, the German bishops’ conference agreed that a Protestant partner of a Catholic can receive the Eucharist after having made a “serious examination” of conscience with a priest or another person with pastoral responsibilities, “affirms the faith of the Catholic Church,” wishes to end “serious spiritual distress,” and has a “longing to satisfy a hunger for the Eucharist.”  However,...

    Pro-Francis journalist Mollie Wilson O'Reilly asks the pope to “stop making every pope a saint” saying that it is “a pretty big coincidence for all of the popes since Pius XII — ahem, Venerable Pius XII — to have been men of uncommon heroic virtue”. Writing in the liberal Catholic magazine Commonweal (February 8) she adds, "If the modern Church really has managed to elect an unbroken string of papal saints in the past century, well, that’s impressive, but considering that the pope is the one who gets to make that call, it’s also a bit...suspect.” In 2014, Pope Francis...

    Several months back Father Hugh Somerville-Knapman, OSB wrote a must read article over at his blog, Dominus mihi adjutor. For those not familiar with Fr. Hugh, a Benedictine monk and priest of Douai Abbey in Berkshire, U.K., he is no liturgical bomb thrower. His arguments are always well reasoned and thoughtful, which is why it’s worth revisiting. “Vale Vatican II: Moving On” verbalizes what a growing number of the faithful are finally coming to grips with. In the words of Fr. Hugh: “it is time now to let go of the Council.” While I encourage everyone to read the full article, there are...

    The RadTradThomist has a most interesting item and has gone to the trouble of typing it out.  A telegram to the State Department of the United States of America originally "Secret" and now, declassified.  It reveals the suggestion that the Deep State in the USA manipulates American Cardinals on the election of the new Pope following the death of Pius XII.  Do we think that this only happened in America? What does it say now about the "Siri Theory?" What does it say about Marcantonio Colonna's revelation of the CIA monitoring of the conclave of 2013 of the Obama backed...
