@De Profundis George Weigel seems nostalgic for JP2, but although wholly neo-con in foreign policy thinking, his writing is useful, and the Ostpolitik reference to Agostini Cardinal Casaroli, architect of that terrible Paul VI policy, is very apt. The Czechoslovak and Hungarian churches became life sapping tools of the respective Communist dictatorships. I honestly wonder if Francis sees the … More
I would disagree in regard to Bashar al-Assad. When the Syrian Arab Army drove Daesh / 'Moderate Rebels' from around Krak de Chevalier, a Dominican Rite Mass was offered there for the first time in perhaps centuries (if not done under the French Mandate). al-Assad is a friend to Christians, and has chastised the Islamists.
Before Pope St Pius X, the Office for secular priests, although not Regular priests, was based on ill-considered changes made under the inept Urban VIII. Pius X did bring improvements, although the changes to how Psalms were laid out, was unfortunate. Mgsr Bugnini's inferior '50s Holy Week changes saw the man appointed by Pius XII as Secretary to the Congregation of Rites, throw away a millennia … More
Not confined, but he is hiding. The words spoken by Cupich's goons sounded like a threat to life. Burning the banner of sodomy is for Cupich what breaking the Cross would be to a Christian.
Bergie will be happy. Someone who was uncovering Conciliar Vatican peculation will ever be a suspected paedo.

The uncanonical excommunication of Fr Feeney MICM was a canary in the mine, something procured by Kennedy lackey Cardinal Cushing. If you read his intro to the Bible Missal of the early '60s (I've one with pasted in autographs of various SSPX priests ranging from Bp Fellay to one Fr Abraham, a controversial priest) you can read the words of a convinced Modernist, the NOM patently couldn't come … More

Boasted of personally carrying out 10,000 abortions before it was legalised. 'One of Italy's forgotten greats' for Francis.

True, given his refusal to kneel before Our Lord in the Monstrance but kneel before Moslems and Pentecostals, he is patently impious, well nigh atheistic. Not really a heretic - a heretic at least believes in God, albeit wrongly.
