Too many Catholics online seem completely confused about what is happening in the Church at present. And why wouldn't they be? Many of them either cannot or will not accept the reality of the situation the Church finds Herself. It is not hard to understand what is happening, and once you accept the truth, everything will fall into place very quickly and everything will become crystal clear to understand.
1) In February 2013, Pope Benedict XVI attempted a partial abdication of the Apostolic See that was wholly uncanonical and invalid. Thus, according to both Canon and civil law, the situation in the Church automatically reverted ipso facto to the very second before the attempted abdication, namely, that Pope Benedict XVI was and still is to this very second the Vicar of Jesus Christ and the one and only Pope.
2) The Conclave of March 2013 that elected Jorge Bergoglio as Francis was entirely and canonically invalid since we already have a legitimate reigning Pontiff. Thus, Jorge Bergoglio is nothing other than an Antipope and a usurper of the Throne of Peter. Since he is an Antipope, everything Francis has done (including his extremely schismatic and illegal near-abolition of the Traditional Latin Mass) is invalid and unlawful.
3) Antipope Francis has proven time and again in the most in-your-face and dramatical fashion possible that he is an heresiarch, a schismatic, an idolater, a Modernist, an apostate, an enemy of Catholicism and thus an enemy of Jesus Christ Himself. His manifest evil is not the cause of him being an Antipope, but clear evidence that he isn't Catholic in any way, shape or form - save that he is baptised. If the Conclave of 2013 was valid, Francis still couldn't be the true Pope since he isn't even Catholic!
4) Antipope Francis is quite possibly the False Prophet who heralds the coming of the Antichrist, and it is evident that he is helping to erect the False Church of the Antichrist, becoming the "Pope" of the One World Religion of the Kingdom of Antichrist. If he isn't the False Prophet, he is aping him to perfection.
5) God is so good, that He shines the beauty of His Light upon the darkness of Satan's schemes, revealing to all with eyes to see what is really happening. There is no excuse to know the truth. Jesus Christ isn't a jerk and will NEVER, EVER keep anyone in confusion - only Satan does that. Every heretical, blasphemous and schismatic thing or word that proceeds from Antipope Francis is another proof from Almighty God of the sad but real situation of Holy Mother Church.
6) Remember: the organ that speaks from Rome, from the Vatican, from the very Tomb of the thrice-blessed Prince of the Apostles ISN'T the True Church of Jesus Christ. The Church of Christ would never teach the blasphemies that daily pour out of the occupied, usurped Vatican. Believe only that which has been always taught in the Church, not the heretical novelties that come out of the Antipope's mouth.
Study the imagine below well. Be able to tell the difference between the Pope (left) from the Antipope (right):
On the Feast of Our Lady of Mount Carmel (Friday 16th July) 2021, Antipope Francis issued a Motu Proprio and an accompanying letter in which he illegally and uncanonically bans the Holy Mass as celebrated in its Latin form since the 4th century and codified by Pope St. Pius V in 1570.
That's right: Antipope Francis issued a letter giving the Modernist episcopacy the right the illegally BAN the Traditional Latin Mass in their dioceses. And you can bet that a large majority will do just that. I've already read several articles and posts detailing how some bishops, within hours, sent out a communique to their dioceses informing them that the TLM will be heavily restricted to the point of it being effectively banned.
I knew this was coming. I could see the logical consequence of having an heretical, Modernist, apostate Antipope defecating over the sacred Throne of St. Peter. This is just more clear, in-your-face evidence that Francis is not now, and NEVER has been, the Vicar of Jesus Christ. Short of the Lord wrenching open the heavens and audibly declaring Francis is an Antipope, this is as clear as it can be.
The only man on earth who IS the Vicar of Jesus Christ and the Successor of St. Peter is Pope Benedict XVI, because - I repeat - his abdication in 2013 was invalid. Benedict has been the one, sole Pope since April 2005. That's 16 years as Pope!
And just to let you know: the Mass as codified by Pope St. Pius V in 1570 can NEVER be banned or abolished. In his Bull, Quo Primum, the saintly Pontiff said:
“We grant in perpetuity that this Missal is hereafter freely and lawfully to be used, without any scruple of conscience or fear of incurring any penalty or censure…
No one whosoever is permitted to alter this notice of Our permission, statute, ordinance, command, precept, grant, indult, declaration, will, decree, and prohibition. Should anyone dare to contravene it, let him know that he will incur the wrath of Almighty God and of the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul.”
Pope St. Pius V invoked the wrath of Almighty God AND of the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul, the Protectors of Rome and of the Church, against ANYONE who contravened his Bull. Let that sink in...
From this point onwards, anyone who still refuses to come to terms with the truth - that Francis is an Antipope and that Benedict XVI has been, since April 2005, the one and only Vicar of Jesus Christ - is not only aiding and abetting the Usurpation of the Holy Church, but they are a conspiracy theorist. It IS a conspiracy against the Holy Father Benedict XVI to claim that he isn't the true, lawful and visible Head of the Church on earth.
Below is the entire English translation of Quo Primum. Read it well!
And here are two posts from Ann Barnhardt and Catholic Family News.
SERVANT OF THE SERVANTS OF GOD
FOR A PERPETUAL REMEMBRANCE
THE APOSTOLIC CONSTITUTION QUO PRIMUM
OF OUR MOST HOLY LORD, ST. PIUS V,
ON PROMUGLATING THE TRIDENTINE LITURGY
From the very first, upon Our elevation to the chief Apostleship, We gladly turned our mind and energies and directed all our thoughts to those matters which concerned the preservation of a pure liturgy, and We strove with God’s help, by every means in our power, to accomplish this purpose. For, besides other decrees of the sacred Council of Trent, there were stipulations for Us to revise and re-edit the sacred books: the Catechism, the Missal and the Breviary. With the Catechism published for the instruction of the faithful, by God’s help, and the Breviary thoroughly revised for the worthy praise of God, in order that the Missal and Breviary may be in perfect harmony, as fitting and proper – for its most becoming that there be in the Church only one appropriate manner of reciting the Psalms and only one rite for the celebration of Mass – We deemed it necessary to give our immediate attention to what still remained to be done, viz, the re-editing of the Missal as soon as possible.
Hence, We decided to entrust this work to learned men of our selection. They very carefully collated all their work with the ancient codices in Our Vatican Library and with reliable, preserved or emended codices from elsewhere. Besides this, these men consulted the works of ancient and approved authors concerning the same sacred rites; and thus they have restored the Missal itself to the original form and rite of the holy Fathers. When this work has been gone over numerous times and further emended, after serious study and reflection, We commanded that the finished product be printed and published as soon as possible, so that all might enjoy the fruits of this labor; and thus, priests would know which prayers to use and which rites and ceremonies they were required to observe from now on in the celebration of Masses.
Let all everywhere adopt and observe what has been handed down by the Holy Roman Church, the Mother and Teacher of the other churches, and let Masses not be sung or read according to any other formula than that of this Missal published by Us. This ordinance applies henceforth, now, and forever, throughout all the provinces of the Christian world, to all patriarchs, cathedral churches, collegiate and parish churches, be they secular or religious, both of men and of women – even of military orders – and of churches or chapels without a specific congregation in which conventual Masses are sung aloud in choir or read privately in accord with the rites and customs of the Roman Church. This Missal is to be used by all churches, even by those which in their authorization are made exempt, whether by Apostolic indult, custom, or privilege, or even if by oath or official confirmation of the Holy See, or have their rights and faculties guaranteed to them by any other manner whatsoever.
This new rite alone is to be used unless approval of the practice of saying Mass differently was given at the very time of the institution and confirmation of the church by Apostolic See at least 200 years ago, or unless there has prevailed a custom of a similar kind which has been continuously followed for a period of not less than 200 years, in which most cases We in no wise rescind their above-mentioned prerogative or custom. However, if this Missal, which we have seen fit to publish, be more agreeable to these latter, We grant them permission to celebrate Mass according to its rite, provided they have the consent of their bishop or prelate or of their whole Chapter, everything else to the contrary notwithstanding.
All other of the churches referred to above, however, are hereby denied the use of other missals, which are to be discontinued entirely and absolutely; whereas, by this present Constitution, which will be valid henceforth, now, and forever, We order and enjoin that nothing must be added to Our recently published Missal, nothing omitted from it, nor anything whatsoever be changed within it under the penalty of Our displeasure.
We specifically command each and every patriarch, administrator, and all other persons or whatever ecclesiastical dignity they may be, be they even cardinals of the Holy Roman Church, or possessed of any other rank or pre-eminence, and We order them in virtue of holy obedience to chant or to read the Mass according to the rite and manner and norm herewith laid down by Us and, hereafter, to discontinue and completely discard all other rubrics and rites of other missals, however ancient, which they have customarily followed; and they must not in celebrating Mass presume to introduce any ceremonies or recite any prayers other than those contained in this Missal.
Furthermore, by these presents [this law], in virtue of Our Apostolic authority, We grant and concede in perpetuity that, for the chanting or reading of the Mass in any church whatsoever, this Missal is hereafter to be followed absolutely, without any scruple of conscience or fear of incurring any penalty, judgment, or censure, and may freely and lawfully be used. Nor are superiors, administrators, canons, chaplains, and other secular priests, or religious, of whatever title designated, obliged to celebrate the Mass otherwise than as enjoined by Us. We likewise declare and ordain that no one whosoever is forced or coerced to alter this Missal, and that this present document cannot be revoked or modified, but remain always valid and retain its full force notwithstanding the previous constitutions and decrees of the Holy See, as well as any general or special constitutions or edicts of provincial or synodal councils, and notwithstanding the practice and custom of the aforesaid churches, established by long and immemorial prescription – except, however, if more than two hundred years’ standing.
It is Our will, therefore, and by the same authority, We decree that, after We publish this constitution and the edition of the Missal, the priests of the Roman Curia are, after thirty days, obliged to chant or read the Mass according to it; all others south of the Alps, after three months; and those beyond the Alps either within six months or whenever the Missal is available for sale. Wherefore, in order that the Missal be preserved incorrupt throughout the whole world and kept free of flaws and errors, the penalty for non-observance for printers, whether mediately or immediately subject to Our dominion, and that of the Holy Roman Church, will be the forfeiting of their books and a fine of one hundred gold ducats, payable ipso facto to the Apostolic Treasury. Further, as for those located in other parts of the world, the penalty is excommunication latae sententiae, and such other penalties as may in Our judgment be imposed; and We decree by this law that they must not dare or presume either to print or to publish or to sell, or in any way to accept books of this nature without Our approval and consent, or without the express consent of the Apostolic Commissaries of those places, who will be appointed by Us. Said printer must receive a standard Missal and agree faithfully with it and in no wise vary from the Roman Missal of the large type (secundum magnum impressionem).
Accordingly, since it would be difficult for this present pronouncement to be sent to all parts of the Christian world and simultaneously come to light everywhere, We direct that it be, as usual, posted and published at the doors of the Basilica of the Prince of the Apostles, also at the Apostolic Chancery, and on the street at Campo Flora; furthermore, We direct that printed copies of this same edict signed by a notary public and made official by an ecclesiastical dignitary possess the same indubitable validity everywhere and in every nation, as if Our manuscript were shown there. Therefore, no one whosoever is permitted to alter this notice of Our permission, statute, ordinance, command, precept, grant, indult, declaration, will, decree, and prohibition. Would anyone, however, presume to commit such an act, he should know that he will incur the wrath of Almighty God and of the Blessed Apostles Peter and Paul.

Commentary #15 of 2021 - Ann Barnhart: VISIBILITY, VISIBILITY, VISIBILITY: God is SO GOOD that Antipope Bergoglio, the likely False Prophet Forerunner of the Antichrist, is literally publicly devoted to JUDAS ISCARIOT.
Full repost from Ann Barnhardt. Original post here.
Salvation is an OPEN BOOK TEST, folks. God is not trying to trick anyone or pull the wool over anyone’s eyes. The sheep don’t need any “secret knowledge” or joke degrees to know who’s who and what’s what. All you need is love of God and to be in a state of grace so that you aren’t blinded by your own sin. Remember, sin makes you stupid, no matter how high your IQ. Sin throws your transmission into neutral, so that no horsepower can get to the axle.
EVERYTHING is out in the open.
Antipope Bergoglio brags about having a picture of Judas Iscariot, HANGED, hanging over his desk. Now, we see that Antipope Bergoglio had the Vatican Newspaper publish their Good Friday edition DEDICATED TO PRAISING AND CANONIZING Judas Iscariot, complete with homoerotica. This is not satire.
Jorge Bergoglio isn’t the Pope, and never was. This simply CANNOT be any clearer. Antipope Jorge Bergoglio is a criminal usurper, a manifest apostate who is tasked, as all Freemasons are, with the total destruction and annihilation of the One True Church from the face of the earth, accomplished by the overthrow and destruction of the Papacy, and the erection of an Antichurch which is Freemasonic and in total servitude to Lucifer.
The guy is LITERALLY publishing his devotion to the BETRAYER OF CHRIST with homoerotic images of Jesus, nude, kneeling at Judas’ corpse, claiming that Christ OWES HIS GLORY… to Judas Iscariot.
This is straight out of Satanism. This is TOTAL INVERSION. Again, THIS IS SATANISM.
Pope Benedict’s resignation in February ARSH 2013 was canonically invalid. Pope Benedict never resigned the Petrine Office, and thus has never stopped being the Pope. The thing that looked like a conclave in March ARSH 2013 was totally null and void. Bergoglio is an Antipope, which most orthodox Catholics now realize. What even more are realizing is that Antipope Bergoglio isn’t just one among the dozens of antipopes in the 2000 year history of the Church – he is very likely the False Prophet Forerunner of the Antichrist, and these are probably the End Times.
Fast. Pray. Go to Confession. Stay in a state of grace. Stay close to the Blessed Virgin, the Co-Redemptrix, most especially through her most holy Rosary.
Pray for Pope Benedict, the Papacy, and Holy Mother Church, the spotless and undefiled Body and Bride of Christ, outside of which there is no salvation.
Lord Jesus Christ, have mercy on us.
Reportage here at Church Militant.
You cannot make this up.
Antipope Bergoglio is going to hold an interfaith prayer service at the Plain of Ur, which is believed to be the site of the Tower of Babel. No, I'm not kidding. The Pope of the Antichurch is going to go and pray at the site of Babel, an image of rebellion against God. In fact, the text of the Bible says that the men of Babel wanted to make a name for themselves. We today call that: Humanism. Something Antipope Bergoglio loves to talk about and encourage.
Just more solid evidence that Bergoglio is not now, and never has been, the Pope/Vicar of Jesus Christ. This man is possibly the False Prophet who is sent to usher in Antichrist. Possibly. If he isn't, then he's certainly stealing the limelight from the real False Prophet!
I left a comment on the Church Militant article, but it's waiting to be approved. No surprise to me if they don't approve of it. Church Militant have been rather militant (pun-intended) in not allowing people to question the legitimacy of Antipope Bergoglio.
Remember: Jorge Mario Bergoglio is not the Pope. Never has been. The Pope is Benedict XVI. He has been Pope since his lawful, canonical election at the Conclave of 2005. No one but Benedict XVI is the Vicar of Jesus Christ and Successor to St. Peter, Prince of the Apostles. Since AD 2013, the Church has been under Bergoglian Usurpation by since Benedict XVI's attempted resignation in March 2013 was uncanonical due to error and force. Watch Ann Barnhardt's two part presentation for all the details. And pray for the Church, the Papacy and Our Holy Father Pope Benedict XVI, the one true Vicar of Jesus Christ, whether he likes/knows it or not.
Commentary #3 of 2021: Modernist Revolution marches on: Bergoglio "changes" Canon Law to permit women to officially be instituted as Lectors and Acolytes, Ministries once restricted to men only
Another move in the Ecclesial Revolution of Vatican II that has recently come about happened on Sunday last, 10th January 2021, which in the Ordinary Form (Novus Ordo) was the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, and in the Extraordinary Form (Traditional Latin Mass) was the Feast of the Holy Family. During the course of this day, Bergoglio issued a Motu Proprio in which he amended Canon 230 to allow women to be instituted by their bishops into the Ministries of Lector and Acolyte.
These ministries were once part of the Four Minor Orders (Porter, Lector, Exorcist, Acolyte), which were the cursus honorum for entering the Priesthood. Naturally, they were restricted to men. During the "reforms" following Vatican II, it was decided to abolish the Orders of Porter and Exorcist in the Novus Ordo, but retain the Orders of Lector and Acolyte as Ministries. The Ministry of Acolyte was merged with the Major Order of Subdeacon, which also was abolished in the Novus Ordo.
Even after the "reform", Paul VI still restricted these Ministries to men only. They can be conferred upon any layman who is found worthy of holding such ministries by his bishop, and an official rite of imposition of these ministries exists, though nowadays the only men likely to receive them are seminarians studying for the Priesthood. I myself have been to several of these ceremonies. They're very simple, and there's not really much to them. They are stepping stones to the Priesthood.
However, as of Sunday of the Baptism/Holy Family, Canon Law has been amended to permit women to be granted these Ministries. The Ministry of Lector permits the recipient to formally read the First, Second and Psalm Readings at Mass in the Novus Ordo, and the Ministry of Acolyte permits its recipients to serve at the altar and, when needed in extraordinary circumstances, to distribute Holy Communion.
Now, you may be thinking: But, I have women reading, serving and distributing Holy Communion at my parish every Sunday. Yes, and there's a reason. The Modernists at Vatican II were hoping that the Diaconate and Presbyterate would be open to women, but that didn't happen. So, when Paul VI came and "reformed" the Minor Orders, they hoped the Holy Father would permit them to women.......he didn't. So, in order to get around the restrictions and allow women to get up into the Sanctuary and at the Altar, the Modernists decided not to formally use the ceremony of installing Lectors and Acolytes (all of whom would be men), but instead restrict the ceremony to seminarians (who are all men anyway) and leave a void open in the parishes for women to......"volunteer"......their services in lieu of men officiating in these Ministries.
In other words, the Modernists restricted the Ministries of Lector and Acolyte to cause an artificial void in the parishes so as to allow women to fulfil these roles without formally breaking Canon Law. It's called using a loophole. Hence why Novus Ordo parishes already have women reading, serving and acting as Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion (wrongly called Eucharistic Ministers).
This move by Bergoglio just canonically solidifies the Modernist Revolution even further. Now, whether this will have a knock-on effect later remains to be seen. As I said above, these Ministries are stepping stones to the Priesthood. If this is a Modernist tip-toe to opening Holy Orders up to women, I wouldn't be surprised.
On the bright side, remember that this move by Bergoglio only concerns the Antichurch, of which he is head. It doesn't - nay, CANNOT - affect the One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. Also remember that the Antichurch eclipses the True Church of Christ, and uses all Her organs to operate, like when Satan possess a person. The Antichurch is currently "possessing" the True Church, and making it seem as if She is doing all this. She isn't.
Don't be deceived.
For your convivence and reading, I have copied the entire text of the Motu Proprio below.
ISSUED "MOTU PROPRIO"
BY THE SUPREME PONTIFF
MODIFYING CANON 230 §1 OF THE CODE OF CANON LAW
REGARDING ACCESS OF WOMEN TO THE MINISTRIES OF LECTOR AND ACOLYTE
The Spirit of the Lord Jesus, the perennial source of the Church's life and mission, distributes to the members of the People of God the gifts that enable each one, in a different way, to contribute to the building up of the Church and to the proclamation of the Gospel. These charisms, called ministries because they are publicly recognised and instituted by the Church, are made available to the community and its mission in a stable form.
In some cases this ministerial contribution has its origin in a specific sacrament, Holy Orders. Other tasks, throughout history, have been instituted in the Church and entrusted through a non-sacramental liturgical rite to individual members of the faithful, by virtue of a particular form of exercise of the baptismal priesthood, and in aid of the specific ministry of bishops, priests and deacons.
Following a venerable tradition, the reception of “lay ministries”, which Saint Paul VI regulated in the Motu Proprio Ministeria quaedam (17 August 1972), preceded in a preparatory manner the reception of the Sacrament of Holy Orders, although such ministries were conferred on other suitable male faithful.
A number of Assemblies of the Synod of Bishops have highlighted the need to deepen the subject doctrinally, so that it may respond to the nature of the aforementioned charisms and the needs of the times, offering appropriate support to the role of evangelisation that is incumbent upon the ecclesial community.
Accepting these recommendations, a doctrinal development has taken place in recent years which has highlighted how certain ministries instituted by the Church are based on the common condition of being baptised and the regal priesthood received in the Sacrament of Baptism; they are essentially distinct from the ordained ministry received in the Sacrament of Orders. A consolidated practice in the Latin Church has also confirmed, in fact, that these lay ministries, since they are based on the Sacrament of Baptism, may be entrusted to all suitable faithful, whether male or female, in accordance with what is already implicitly provided for by Canon 230 § 2.
Consequently, after having heard the opinion of the competent Dicasteries, I have decided to modify canon 230 § 1 of the Code of Canon Law. I therefore decree that canon 230 § 1 of the Code of Canon Law shall in future have the following wording:
“Lay persons of suitable age and with the gifts determined by decree of the Episcopal Conference may be permanently assigned, by means of the established liturgical rite, to the ministries of lectors and acolytes; however, the conferment of such a role does not entitle them to support or remuneration from the Church”.
I also order the amendment of the other provisions having the force of law which refer to this canon.
I order that the provisions of this Apostolic Letter in the form of a Motu Proprio have firm and stable effect, notwithstanding anything to the contrary, even if worthy of special mention, and to be promulgated by publication in L'Osservatore Romano, coming into force on the same day, and then published in the official commentary of the Acta Apostolicae Sedis.
Given in Rome, at Saint Peter's, on the tenth day of January in the year 2021, the Feast of the Baptism of the Lord, the ninth of my Pontificate.
