The irony: today, Vatican II critics like PiusX support most of Vatican II, while its neo-modernist "defenders" do not. - Rao

https://www.gloria.tv/post/N9BFZ4CygAa231iFf9PvsvitpHistorian: Francis' Pontificate Is the Worst In History

Francis has created clear fronts between those who are for us and those who are against us, New York historian John Rao told Gloria.tv at Italy's Roman Forum (video below).

For Rao, creating this clarity is the only good thing about Francis. Otherwise, he says, this "is the absolute worst pontificate in the history of the Catholic Church - there's nothing to compare it to." Rao calls Francis and his tenure "an absolute disaster".

He explains that previous popes, who were bad because of their moral behaviour, would not have dreamed of "changing" doctrine, while now there are bishops who call this pontificate "the reign of pure arbitrariness".

Francis has done more than anyone else to destroy the authority of Peter and has replaced it with "a personal despotism that has absolutely no limits" while ignoring canon law.

On Traditionis Custodes, Rao notes that in the Archdiocese of New York, as in many other dioceses, there has been no real change. In the US, three dioceses show a special hatred for the Roman Mass: Chicago (Cupich), Washington (Gregory) and St Augustine, Florida (Pohlmeier).

For Rao, it's clear that Francis' attempt to return to the 1970s is failing: "We're never going back to private little living rooms and hotels." Back then, many still thought the bishops would take care of the problems, "today we know better."

Rao calls the Vatican bankrupt and incapable of enforcing obedience. Since Vatican II (1962-65), there has been a history of ignoring what comes out of Rome, "They won't drive us back into the catacombs."

He calls Francis' attempt to reaffirm the Second Vatican Council an absurdity: "What do people support about Vatican II who claim to support Vatican II?" he asks.

The irony: today, Vatican II critics like PiusX support most of Vatican II, while its neo-modernist "defenders" do not.

Vox Cantoris vs. Aqua

The Catholic Monitor commenter Aqua had this to say to the Vox Cantoris website: Aqua said… Fred, your topic here reminds me of a dust-up, a few days ago, on Vox Cantoris. He asserted that it is our duty as Christians to wear masks to the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass if the government tells us we must, or they will close our Churches. My response to him was that I find it inconceivable that an orthodox Catholic, such as himself, would ever submit to unjust dictates from secular government over how we approach Our Lord in Holy Mass. My response to him was that the Mass belongs to Catholics and we decide, within the bounds of Tradition, and in accord with the Word of Jesus, how we conduct ourselves in Holy Mass. Only one authority prevails over Mass and that is our God and the Sacred Tradition given by Him to guide us in all times and places. Understand, there is nothing inherently wrong with wearing a mask to Mass. But there is EVERYTHING wrong with wearing a symbol

Mainstream Media: "Is America the Real Victim of Anti-Russia Sanctions?" & "Biden's arrogant anti-Russian sanctions have amounted to a price hike on working class Americans that have so far failed to weaken the Russian economy"

  Mainstream Media Acknowledges Biden’s “Arrogant” Sanctions On Russia Are Damning Americans:     @MaxBlumenthal Biden's arrogant anti-Russian sanctions have amounted to a price hike on working class Americans that have so far failed to weaken the Russian economy. His neocon policy accelerates the process of de-dollarization, diplomatic isolation & imperial decline. The mainstream new outlet asked "Is America the Real Victim of Anti-Russia Sanctions?": Remember the claims that Russia’s economy was more or less irrelevant, merely the equivalent of a small, not very impressive European country? “Putin, who has an economy the size of Italy,” Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said in 2014 after the invasion of Crimea, “[is] playing a poker game with a pair of twos and winning.” Of increasing Russian diplomatic and geopolitical influence in Europe, the Middle East, and East Asia, The Economist asked in 2019, “How did a country with an economy the size of Spain … ach
