Z’s rejection of Paul VI story defies common sense Latest Comments James The Lesser March 7, 2014 Great video Louie! Redfeather March 7, 2014 Ultra shocking. My mantra to others is that our forebears were not stupid! For 3500 years of generations across cultures people understood that every child needs a mother and a father, or at least a shot at a mother and a father. To put a child in a household where sodomy takes place daily was unthinkable, taboo, evil. This is the first generation that believes this to be untrue. To smile upon sodomy and legitimize it into civil or tribal law was unthinkable!!! Don Richard March 7, 2014 Beautiful Louie. And yes keep making the videos. Patt March 7, 2014 Great piece–all should listen. I have many that are too afraid to even question this Pope–it is mainly my older and wiser friends (and those that know their Faith) that do … Geoffrey M March 7, 2014 I used to place confidence in the “biological solution” to Vatican II and its wicked ways and means; that it would fade once the last liberal “slept with the fishes.” Unfortunately, the progenitors have spawned and the seas of Mod Faith are teeming with packs of sharks, indifferent to their natural species, all swarming in a feeding frenzy, gorging themselves on naïve Catholics who see themselves just the way Louie described: One “family.” Even Michael Corleone was smarter than that! (Great job, Louie. Keep the motif and don’t forget to and take the cannoli!) Elizabeth March 7, 2014 Great video. Keep ’em coming. Well done. Mr.MC March 7, 2014 Dear Tradwriter, Great Video, Louie! I find them very beneficial so keep them coming. Wannagettaheaven March 7, 2014 Dear Louie, Love to see and hear you. Do more, so one of us doesn’t need to read during dinner. Fr.A March 7, 2014 Very good, Louie! Really enjoyed it, and I didn’t feel like I was going to get poked in the eye with a pencil! Pooh Bear March 7, 2014 Great presentation Louie. If I could make only one suggestion, it would be a better camera… but then you’d have to start charging us to watch the videos! Verbum March 7, 2014 Ambiguous Ecumenism only perpetuates the problem. It is a means of lowering the defenses of the Church. Louie, you fail to identify the root cause; the privatization of the individual (and hence religion) via the influence of enlightenment philosophies. Ambiguous ecumenism is a extension of this to some degree but the roots of the problem need attention firstly: Enlightenment -> Modernism -> Neo-Modernism = Crisis. Catholic Militant March 7, 2014 Hello Tradwriter—good bye CMTV! We need to hear the truth even when it hurts. Like sugar with medicine, your great sense of humor helps us to absorb what is happening in the Catholic Church. Most of our bishops (and surely Bishop of Rome Bergoglio) are “Sons of Vatican II”. There is no solid Catholic theology–only feelings! God bless you and keep up the good work. PS- I wonder how Bishop of Rome would have greeted Bishop Fellay. I don’t think he would be smiling and holding his hand! Exactly What Percent? March 7, 2014 95% of respondents said they were practicing Catholics, but “most prevalent answer” doesn’t mean anything. How many responded? How representative of Catholics were the respondents? And what percent responded to the question in question? I am from the ADW and I don’t know anyone who participated in this survey these bishops are ballyhooing. They can do whatever they want and create whatever justification they want, but people are just disgusted and NO-ONE wants a homosexual sodomizing their child. As far as I can tell only thing keeping the Church going right now is the corrupt professional (homosexual) priesthood and it’s satellite of scribes and Pharisees, i.e. the people living off the Catholic industrial complex (hospital, social services, nursing homes, colleges, schools, media, archdioceses etc.). Tradawanabe March 7, 2014 Verbum Great point, and we have the likes of the Acton Inst. making deep enlightenment inroads into traditional Catholicism. Tradawanabe March 7, 2014 Louie, Loved the Vid. Halina March 7, 2014 Dear Louie, great video……nothing less than a ‘fides intrepida’! Deo Gratias! “Lo, dost thou not see Meg, that these blessed fathers be now as cheerfully going to their deaths as bridegrooms to a marriage” “This is the Catholic Faith: which except a man believe faithfully he cannot be saved.”…….St. Thomas More “I care nothing for what the Church has held or taught. I will that you testify by solemn oath that you believe and firmly hold what ‘we propose’ to you to profess……. …….Thomas Cromwell Veiled March 7, 2014 Why do the survey in the first place..Did Jesus come down here to ask opinions from His disciples on how to manage His flock ? didn’t He simply give us everything that we need to know and follow.? And after that,to ensure the message would reach us,Didn’t he tell His disciples “as my father sent me, so I am sending you” ? He knew we would have all this mess hence left us with “Take up your cross and follow me” , no questions ,no ifs and no buts. Andrew March 7, 2014 So really, because of the sins of the hierarchy – the popes, cardinals, and bishops, the people no longer believe. That’s the problem now – apostasy of the Catholic nations. So many just go through the motions, not bothering to save their souls. A Friend and A Fan March 7, 2014 Keep up the great work! Love the video! Redfeather March 7, 2014 I have friends who were all atwitter over the survey, but it struck me as unseemly and I refused to get involved. These friends are regular communicants who see nothing wrong with “gay marriage”, and I suspect there are millions like them. Why doesn’t your regular, average intelligence Catholic see that homosexual marriage turns children into commodities to be purchased and traded, whatwith the selling of gametes and the “renting” of wombs. Since the advent of IVF in 1978 I have not heard once from the pulpit of the evil of these reproductive practices. The Catholic Church in the West is in deep, deep decay. Javid March 7, 2014 False ecumenicism is a large problem and dangerous. Many of our leaders seemingly esteem other religions more than their own faith. It is like they are trying to liquidate our faith. Good video! Catholic Johnny March 7, 2014 “PS- I wonder how Bishop of Rome would have greeted Bishop Fellay. I don’t think he would be smiling and holding his hand!” -Catholic Militant This is THE question that needs to be answered. Nate C. March 7, 2014 I really appreciated both your videos Louie. I like the theme too. Writing is always tone deaf to some point, while video allows a more personal and intimate understanding of who you are, and what you speak about. Thank you. Jmj March 7, 2014 Very good video, keep them coming. saluto March 8, 2014 Like all the folks above, excellent presentation. Easy to remember the points as well and the reasoning behind them as well. Keep doing them, please. – @veiled asked, ‘why do a survey in the first place?’ so they could have a synod about it in October. Problem, reaction, solution. – the lack of thought of those who responded to the survey in that manner is hard to countenance – the thought that they should place innocence into arms of those struggling with a such a disorder, and a disorder that cries out to heaven for vengeance is something no Catholic would have believed once. – I guess the catechism of ecumenism and the ecumenism of catechesis is the ‘neverending’ end point. piusx3 March 8, 2014 Awesome videos. Keep them coming! Do one on the Tlm vs. the new mass.(differences & errors of the new mass) Spread the truth & they will come! God bless S.Armaticus. March 8, 2014 Louie, great job. You hit the proverbial nail on the head. Bravo! Belissimo! Encore!Encore! —- Veiled asked a great question: “Why do the survey in the first place..Did Jesus come down here to ask opinions from His disciples on how to manage His flock ? Answer: Because Jesus has nothing to do with this. The VII NewChurch needs to gauge how successful they have been at creating the “religion of man”. There experiment has failed, and the Faithful are starting to ask questions. The NewChurchmen can’t admit that they failed, so they blame the said Faithful. But what they don’t say is that they are the culprits responsible for the debacle. And this is the point that The TradWriter so preciently exposed in the above video. —– Look at this this way. An economist calls this process a “positive feedback loop”. The VII crowd has taught the heretical NewChurch ecumenism for 50 years, the results of the NewEcumenism have a “causal relationship” with the beliefs of the present pew-sitters, so now the VII crowd does a survey to suggest that the said pew-sitters have actually believed what has been taught to them for the last 50 years (as if this has happened by magic) and closing the feedback loop with the implicit suggestion that the “NewChurch” needs to get in line with what the pew-sitters believe or otherwise it will lose those said pew-sitters. Rinse and repeat! —— The logical argument to counter the above absurd logical fallacy is the situation in the Episcopalian sect. The Episcopalians have birth control, abortion, married priest, priestesses, homo marriage, homo priests, homo priestesses, homo bishops, homo bishopettes, homo adoption euthanasia and the list goes on and on…. —— And the logical and HONEST question that a sane person needs to ask is this: By having all these VII NewChurch novelties and beliefs that are in the Episcopalian sect, are their pews filled. —– The objective answer is a big fat NO. That sect is losing their pew-sitters at a much faster rate that the VII NewChurch. —– But I guess retaining pew-sitters isn’t the point of this VII NewChurch exercise. —– Geoffrey M said: “I used to place confidence in the “biological solution” to Vatican II and its wicked ways and means; that it would fade once the last liberal “slept with the fishes.” Unfortunately, the progenitors have spawned and the seas of Mod Faith are teeming with packs of sharks, indifferent to their natural species, all swarming in a feeding frenzy, gorging themselves on naïve Catholics who see themselves just the way Louie described: One “family.”” —– The biological solution only works when the money runs out. Which means that the pew-sitters must depart to their just reward. And once the collection plate take from the pew-sitters is gone, and the church trust funds are depleted, the VII heretics will be forced to return and earn their living by the sweat of their brow. And all this stupidity will end. —- And all that will be left is the SSPX. —- In the infamous words of the A-Team commander Hannibal Smith: ” I love it when a plan comes together!” Torquemada Tequila March 8, 2014 Just when I felt the video could not get any worse, Louie did something wonderful that raised my spirits. He ended it. – With quality productions like that, I suggest Louie apply to Fisher-More College as their new fundraising / marketing / v-log director. I cannot recall such lacklustre cinematography since my last viewing of Asylum’s “Megashark vs. Crocosaurus”. Dumb_ox March 8, 2014 This is an excellent video. Accompanying transcripts would be welcome for quick reference. I would suggest that the root cause of this problem goes even deeper than false ecumenism. Take as an example, the following extract, not from Jorge Bergoglio, but from the foreword to Pope Benedict XVI’s book, Jesus of Nazareth (emphases in bold added): “Admittedly, to believe that, as man, [Jesus] truly was God, and that he communicated his divinity veiled in parables, yet with increasing clarity, exceeds the scope of the historical method. Yet if instead we take this conviction of faith as our starting point for reading the texts with the help of historical methodology and its intrinsic openness to something greater, they are opened up and they reveal a way and a figure that are worthy of belief” (p.xxiii). Benedict adds (in a book that bears his papal name), “It goes without saying that this book is in no way an exercise of the magisterium”. This is just as well, because the following is such an exercise, and what is more its condemnations apply even to those who write books that are “in no way an exercise of the Magisterium”: “Yet it is a fixed and established principle among [the Modernists] that both science and history must be atheistic: and within their boundaries there is room for nothing but phenomena; God and all that is divine are utterly excluded. We shall soon see clearly what, according to this most absurd teaching, must be held touching the most sacred Person of Christ” (Pope St. Pius X, Pascendi). Again here: “Hence should it be further asked whether Christ has wrought real miracles,and made real prophecies, whether He rose truly from the dead and ascended into heaven, the answer of agnostic science will be in the negative and the answer of faith in the affirmative – yet there will not be, on that account, any conflict between them. For it will be denied by the philosopher as philosopher, speaking to philosophers and considering Christ only in His historical reality; and it will be affirmed by the speaker, speaking to believers and considering the life of Christ as lived again by the faith and in the faith.” If the Pope exercises the intellectual freedom to deny that Christ’s divinity is proved purely historically, how can he possibly expect “the faithful” not to exercise a similar intellectual freedom with regard to any of the teachings of Christ’s Church? Any kind of proselytism becomes “solemn nonsense”. Ziemek March 8, 2014 In last October-November I readed ,,Iota Unum” and in chapter on Ecumenism he expose precisely this ,,going to the Jesus who is outside both of us”. Almost 30 year after its publication this is true as in the day of its printing. It bring really sorrow. saluto March 8, 2014 @ziemek – have been meaning to read ‘Iota Unum’ for a while. Did the author mean that Ecumenism is seeking Jesus where He is not to be found – as Louie is saying in the ‘omega point’? the lie of humanism-modernism? If so I have heard this many times in homilies. This is so foreign to how Catholics have ‘always’ (when thinking in an orthodoxical Way) lived and believed. Catholic at Rome March 8, 2014 Dumb_ox, You misunderstand what B16 means by “historical method”, he means the “historical critical method”, which is a rationalistic reading of historical documents, and which presupposes all the principles and errors of Rationalism, such as the a priori denial of the possibility of miracles. For such, there cannot be historical proof of Christ’s Divinity, just as there can be no historical proof that God exists. For Catholics and normal folk, historical has the sense of anything which in truth existed in the past or which can be derived from that. Theresa March 8, 2014 On the money….please keep these videos coming!!!! Catholic Militant March 8, 2014 TT- You should work for Michael Voris. You have the perfect personality to be on his staff. Give him a call—he may have some openings coming up! Good luck!! Torquemada Tequila March 8, 2014 @Catholic Militant Why would I want to work for someone like Voris? His content is as soft as the content between Louie’s ears. Edu March 8, 2014 Torquemada Tequila, – Just WHAT exactly are you trying to accomplish posting on this site? – I know only too well the likes of you – negative, materialistic types; once these kind of people vanish the clouds filling the air seem to disappear like magic. I for one don’t believe your intentions posting on this blog are entirely sincere and honest. – Are you so dim witted to think that Louie has at his disposal right now a state of the art media center in his home? You who are so into “practicality”, don’t you think it was wise of Mr V to gauge reader interest into his video productions before perhaps increasing the quality of the production? – Louie, – Great video! Keep ’em coming. You have a wonderful sense of humour – as I always say much needed in these days of apostasy! : ) Don’t listen to the aforementioned buffoon. – God Bless. Edu March 8, 2014 Louie, BTW LOL!: R = Restorationist Good one Perhaps for “milder” shows we might need “PG” = parental guidance, this show may incline the viewer to develop a “Sensus catholicus”! saluto March 8, 2014 well said, Edu. I don’t know what the hell tt is on about. they supposedly are a sedev, while plugging cimtvees porn exegesis; they haven’t a clue about NO Rites but hate them? viva freedom of speech, but get out the fly-spray on the bubs of lies. can’t stand traitors. – p.s. have I any recourse to seek compensation for my support of cmtv whilst they were fomenting their doctrine of spiritual porn? not in this life, I guess. saluto March 8, 2014 I think that the CDF should decriminalize Sunday absence. Then those of us who are stuck with the scandal of sandanista sacumontes can sleep in without feeling guilty about not feeding falsehoods. saluto March 8, 2014 hmm, which will come first? sasexuns before the altar? Holy Communion for people who have gone ‘joined together…never asunder’, whatev? one shouldn’t obsess about abortion, therefore the pope is behind those poor unconfessed might have been mothers as they line up to take in hand their salvation? or permission to abstain from the Novus Ordo if one’s faith is being compromised by the utter ignorance or knowledgeable detestation of the Faith by the clergy? – as always my questions remain rhetorical. Siobhan March 8, 2014 The videos are great. They’re a nice balance to CMTV. Dan Hunter March 8, 2014 Excellennt Mr Verrechio! As usual, not only hitting the nail on the head, but driving it home. Goodbye Michael Voris. Keep it coming Louie! If you need a donation please ask: email@example.com Long-Skirts March 8, 2014 Really, really good! I pray for you! Hannah March 8, 2014 Splendid video, Mr. Verrecchio! Please do more! I enjoy hearing you preach the truth of the Faith. SteveD March 8, 2014 Very good exposition. More, please. salvelinus March 8, 2014 I find it infantile how quickly some trash CMTV now. When the same were likely watching it regularly until their hypersensitive egos were ever so slightly bruised. Also, many of the comments herr are very unbecoming of any supposed Catholic in the season of lent. Total lack of charity, ad hominem attack jobs. Pray for those that persecute and calumniate you. Many of you sound like you either forgot to take your medication, check in with your parole officers, or both. To the commenter hoping for “decriminalization of Sunday requirement”-. Are you joking? MMC March 8, 2014 Salvelinus- Dude, pot meet kettle. Attacking people for…attacking CMTV? *shakes head* I think it’s just the wound from being pummeled all the time from every direction. It’s hard to take one in the back from people you thought you could trust. But I pray that CMTV sees the light one day:+) MV is truly sincere…so I think it’s only a matter of time and grace:+) I agree that we need to use the spiritual works of mercy here: forgive offenses willingly and bear wrong patiently:+) But it is not calumny or persecution to call out an objective wrong…we have not accused MV of being medicated or parolees…:+) May the Lord bless you abundantly:+) Torquemada Tequila March 8, 2014 Oh my goodness! He’s back! The greatest no-nonsense traditional Catholic apologist to appear during the post-conciliar era. The man who forced Mormon missionaries to admit the only way to go to hell was to read the Book of Mormon. The only Catholic apologist Mr “Tulip Dancer” James White refuses to debate: Mr. Vincent P Lewis of All Roads Ministry! http://www.allroadsministry.com/ truthmatters March 8, 2014 http://www.chick.com/reading/tracts/1057/1057_01.asp the fruitlessness of being religious .Full of self righteousness and not seek the true salvation Jesus offers to all who will call on Him 1 john 1 susan March 8, 2014 excellent, EXCELLENT analysis Louie! tv March 8, 2014 Louie, I would not make any more videos until you have a one on one conversation with the Queen of Heaven and Earth….You are still drinking the old wine…as is MV. TV Torquemada Tequila March 8, 2014 @truthmatters Chick Tracts! Theological resources for Bible students who move their lips when they read. Torquemada Tequila March 8, 2014 @truthmatters: Speaking of ecclesiastical pornography, why does Jack Chick employ the propaganda methods invented by communists and pornographers to attack Christian faith and morality? mummyforlife March 8, 2014 Great video Mr Verrecchio! You explained that very well so well infect I understood it all. Thank you. TomV March 8, 2014 Out of Communion with the Church? Great! Keep them coming. But, the implied conclusion is there is a failure on the part of the Pope(s) who promote this ecumenialism though their Bishops and Priest. Does criticism of Vatican II etc. and the Popes who promote its edicts render one “Out of Communion with the Church” a la SSPX? capt. morgan March 8, 2014 Well done sir. Please continue to provide these videos. salvelinus March 8, 2014 Ha… jack chick. Thanks for providing me nightmares tonight Mitchell March 8, 2014 Thanks for your time and insight. CatholicMum March 8, 2014 Thank you for sharing your time and talents, please continue to do so! Mark March 9, 2014 Great video! I’d love to see more of these! Remnant Clergy March 9, 2014 Setup for the one world church. Sin will be abolished by adopting the once-saved-always-saved doctrine. The promotion of the Mercy of God at the expense of Truth and Justice. Coming soon. Redfeather March 9, 2014 Wonderful video. Intelligent, informative and fun. Makes CMTV seem like pablum. Patt March 9, 2014 Louie–PLEASE BLOCK TT. Such nasty , angry, snide, and anti Catholic remarks should not be allowed. Why Catholic haters come onto Catholic blogs makes no sense–don’t they have their own sites??? Heather March 10, 2014 I look forward to hearing more of ‘The Tradwriter’ videos; most especially because the R rating recommends it. Next to the red rose, that is. Charles Byrne March 10, 2014 Thanks Louie for being radical – getting to the root. Michael Voris, as good willed as he obviously is, is still attacking the symptoms. That gets depressing after a while. We all need answers, no matter how horrific they may be. We have to attack indifferentism and false ecuminism as the greatest evils in the modern world. They are mocking God and His Holy Religion and sending countless souls to eternal perdition. To quote a wonderful priest in his sermon yesterday, “indifferentism is a form satanism.” May the warmth and light of truth melt the ice in this bleak Arctic springtime. God bless. Continue the Videos March 11, 2014 Continue the videos sir, they are beneficial. saluto March 12, 2014 @Charles Byrne thanks for passing this on: ‘indifferentism is a form if satanism’. God bless. Pope Frank II March 12, 2014 A bit of what used to be called ‘common sense’ by Catholics now appears to shine like the works of Aristotle when set alongside the crippled thought process that is now endemic in the Church. Well done Louie, simple, concise, and the absolute truth. You have been recommended to Us (Pope Frank II ) for a papal knighthood.
