Speaking of photos…

I am acquainted with a priest that stayed, years ago, in the Residenza Paolo VI on the Via della Scrofa (just north of Piazza Navona) in Rome while Bergoglio was also there for quite a span of time.

It is confirmed that THIS is an accurate reflection of what the future Antipope (and likely False Prophet Forerunner of the Antichrist) looked like, glowering in the dining room, day in and day out.

Bergoglio is a psychopath, described by his OWN JESUIT superior general, Kolvenbach, as a “sociopath” in the required dossier of any priest nominated for the episcopacy when Bergoglio was first nominated to be elevated to the episcopacy in the early 1990s.

That’s right. Even the arch-liberal heretic Jesuit Kolvenbach was warning Rome of Bergoglio’s evil insanity. To no avail. JPII was addicted and thus blinded to the money wielded by the Freemasons and the Legionaries. But, I think we all know that that statement is largely a distinction without a difference in functional terms. Satanic money-and-sex cults are all under the same preternatural hierarchy.

But, of course, NOT EVEN THIS is what makes Bergoglio an Antipope. What makes Bergoglio an Antipope is the Canonical invalidity (twelve ways from Sunday) of Pope Benedict’s attempted partial abdication.

-Invalid resignation means NO RESIGNATION. (Canons 188 and 332.2)

-No valid resignation means no vacant See.

-No vacant See means no valid conclave. (Canon 359)

-Invalid conclaves do nothing but vomit forth totally invalid antipopes. Obviously, “universal acceptance” ONLY applies to a LEGALLY, CANONICALLY VALID election. Duh.

THIS is just… informative. And another aspect of the VISIBILITY of all of this. Bear in mind, the rest of the world is fooled by Antipope Bergoglio’s toothy grin. They call him “the smiling Pope”. But the truth is VISIBLE for all who care to look and see.

Pray for Pope Benedict, the Papacy, and Holy Mother Church!

Saint Michael the Archangel, guardian angel of the reigning Pontiff Pope Benedict, pray for him, and for us!

Another odd little “Visibility” tidbit from ARSH 2014. “This gift is from the Pope. But this other one is from Jorge Bergoglio.”

Not anything that by itself is any kind of smoking gun. But, it is yet another tidbit to add to the dataset under the header of “weird things he has said.”

“This gift is from the Pope. But this other one is from Jorge Bergoglio.”


This is from Barry’s visit in ARSH 2014. I totally missed this at the time. Time stamp is 01:37 so you can be spared the sight of John Kerry.

If Belief in the Primacy, Universal Jurisdiction and Supernatural Negative Protection of Infallibility of the Pope is Idolatry, then EVERY PERSON in this film is guilty of Mortal Sin, Including Pope Pius XII Himself.

To believe that every Catholic for nearly 2000 years has been guilty of the mortal sin of idolatry vis a vis the Pope, and that only now Trad Inc. has liberated the Church from error, is the epitome of hubris.

“Look at the TIARA!  What does he think he is, some sort of a monarch or something?

Look at those ignoramus RUBES cheering the Pope like he is something unique.  Papolatrous morons!

Look at him putting the zucchetto on his head as if he were anything special.”

Apparently some great debate is alight regarding my physical beauty. We laff. We laff HARD.

Thank you, folks, for your kind words.

For the record, I think I’m pretty average, but paint-up okay, but I am absolutely delighted at how well I am aging (I’m an October ’76 vintage.) I clearly inherited my skin from the paternal side of my Tree. No crows feet yet!! I have about six grey hairs, which made their debut last year, but again, I’m delighted because my maternal Tree was prematurely grey. And hey, I wear hats, so six grey hairs are exactly zero issue.

I do have good teeth, whose straightening took over a decade (again from the paternal side, horrific inherited malocclusion) and I am diligent in keeping them white, largely because my smile is by far the most prominent feature of my countenance. Also, I remember well what a dental hygienist said to me when I was a youngling: “Oh, you don’t have to floss ALL of your teeth every day – just the ones you want to keep.” Indeed. I LIKE having teeth. I’m keen to keep them all.

My only current physical critique is the “emergency wine” I am carrying. But one of the benefits of dressing modestly is that you can totally cover your “emergency wine” WITHIN REASON.

The one and only thing I miss about being “rich” is having a personal trainer. And mine was one of the best. His name was “Rich”, he was a legit bodybuilder, and his biceps were literally bigger than my waist (at the time). And just a prince of a man. A family man. Total class. It was like working out with my cousin.

But otherwise, don’t worry about me, folks. I’m gunning for the Beatific Vision, and in heaven all of the saved are all beautiful beyond comprehension. I’m at my most beautiful, at least in Our Lord’s eyes, when I make a good confession – not when I’m ripped and wearing a fierce hat. In the hour of my death, may I possess TRUE beauty: The beauty of the Baptismal Garment. That is all I ask. It’s the fruit of the 4th Glorious Mystery.

Critiques and even insults of one’s physical beauty or lack thereof are salutary in that they should inspire a healthy humility AND a desire to go to confession and “beautify” one’s interior, and “bleach” one’s baptismal garment.

Hail Mary, full of grace, Blessed art thou among women, and blessed is the Fruit of thy womb, Jesus.

Holy Mary, Mother of God, pray for us sinners, now and at the hour of our death. Amen.

Mailbag: A correction and warning about SCRUPULOSITY

Dear Miss Barnhardt,

Your mention of the term “scrupulous” in your post Mailbag: An Interesting Gastrointestinal Physiology Meditation got me thinking. You described people possibly calling you scrupulous for advocating longer Eucharistic fasts, and said you’d own it. Longer Eucharistic fasting out of love for Our Lord in the Blessed Sacrament is NOT an example of scrupulosity as written of by St. Alphonsus Liguori, and is not something that should be gladly owned. I write not to correct you, but because I thought if you ever wanted to say something about real scrupulosity, it might do a lot of people a lot of good.

Real scrupulosity is constant fear that one has committed a mortal sin without knowing it. (Notice the contradiction? “Without knowing it” vis a vis “Full knowledge and consent.”) It includes the fear that all one’s confessions were invalid and all one’s communions sacrilegious, and that one incurs the guilt of every sin, even interior ones, committed by anyone around oneself, because one did not admonish them sufficiently. It brings with it frequent temptations to despair. It’s considered to be a religious form of OCD, but I don’t know anything about that. On the matter of Eucharistic fasting, a scrupulous person will often think that if he accidentally swallows a bit of skin from his lips, or even post-nasal drip, he has broken the fast and must not receive. This may be a relief because he had been worried that he shouldn’t receive anyway and now has a reason not to without being positive he’s in mortal sin.

I had never written about it on the internet because the opposite wrong attitude, presumption of God’s mercy, is prevalent nowadays. But lately I’ve wondered if the devil might be using it as a flanking attack in these dark times. Trads are the folks it would be most likely to arise among, and I’ve recently seen some comments on Trad sites saying “If you want to feel better/be happy, go to confession” which can be a very harmful idea if taken to imply that if you go to confession and don’t feel better, it didn’t work.

The debate over whether one can attend Novus Ordo Mass would be a hotbed for scrupulous temptations, since by some (incorrect) arguments it seems to posit a dilemma of mortal sin on both alternatives. Taylor Marshall’s tweet about committing schism if one doubts the validity of Bergoglio’s supposed papacy and attends Mass where he is commemorated is an almost perfect trap for a scrupulous person, with the “Good luck” being especially cruel. Scrupulosity is all about the feeling that one is trapped into mortal sin whichever way one turns and there is no possible escape.

What a scrupulous person absolutely must remember is that one’s feelings are not the arbiter of reality and that God truly, with infinite Love, wants us to reach Heaven; He is not trying to trap us into Hell. The following quote from the Prayer after Confession found in the 1962 Roman Missal may also be helpful:

“Supply also, by Thy mercy, whatever defects have been in this my confession, and give me grace to be now and always a true penitent.” Hearing Bergoglio and his ilk spread their false version of mercy can tempt one to dismiss the idea of God’s mercy altogether, and a lack of trust in God’s true mercy is precisely what scrupulosity is.

Thank you for your writing.

Yours in Christ,


Mailbag: A Bonzer Youngling Sheila Checks In

Dear Ann,

My name is A and I am writing to you after listening to your last podcast, wherein you talked about the average age of your listeners. Well, at the age of 25, I’m happy to say that I’m one of your younger listeners! I have actually been reading your blog since 2011, when your Koran-burning video went viral. I was 17 and in high school when I came by it through my mother, who received it in a chain email. I have to say that I couldn’t believe what I saw! Having been raised in an irreligious family by politically left-leaning parents, I was just fascinated to see that someone dared speak out against islam (at the time, I too thought of islam as just another religion like Christianity). So, completely captivated, I jumped onto your website and started reading your blog posts, and I’ve stayed ever since. Of course, at first, I thought you were absolutely crazy (especially after I read your thoughts on women’s suffrage!) but over time, I was won over by your clear and logical explanations. Through your posts, I also started to gain an interest in Catholicism. At that time, I was a baptised Catholic, but in name only. My family did not attend church. So, from that point on, I did a lot of research on Catholicism, and went on to read the Bible from cover to cover. By the time I moved to Australia to attend university, I was a full-on Catholic, who couldn’t wait to attend her first Latin Mass.

Now I am pleased to say that I am married to a wonderful and traditional Catholic man, and together we have a little baby girl. We are also part of a great Catholic community who work together to fight for good (currently, we are protesting against an extreme abortion bill in New South Wales, Australia). I don’t think that any of this would have happened if you hadn’t filmed that crazy video of yours with the Big Shock Factor! I am almost certain that I would have come to university and gobbled up the leftist garbage, and who knows what would have become of me! I definitely owe you a very tardy thank you for inspiring me to question modern thought and opening my mind up to different ideas.

I still enjoy your content very much, though now primarily through your podcasts, which are easy to listen to while I balance my daily tasks of caring for a baby, keeping a house, and studying part-time. So, I implore you to keep up the great work and know that you have made huge differences in people’s lives through your work.

God bless you!

With love and gratitude,


Mailbag: Putting away the things of a child

The following letter came across the transom from a listener to Barnhardt Podcast #092:

Howdy Ann,

Early in the last show you were discussing the average age of your listeners skewing towards the older end of the spectrum, and that you’d like to hear from any young listeners/readers that you have, especially regarding their media habits.

I’ve been a fan of your content since about the age of 18, when i was still making the journey from baptized paganry to true-blue Catholicism. You were an important part of that conversion and I’d like to thank you. Now I am a 20 year-old married man with one baby girl on the way, thanks be to God.

Regarding media usage, I’ve certainly cut down in the past years, following your recommendation to ditch social media and TV, and whittling away at my video game time as well. Frankly, I never liked social media in the first place, as I’ve always been quite the nerd and never had many friends, so I suppose that makes me a bit of an outlier. However, video games have been my long-standing media struggle since I was a kid. Specifically, fantasy role-playing games where you take the role of a knight or wizard or what have you, have always provided a sense of security and escapism to me. When I was a youngling it was about ignoring a world where I wasn’t well-liked, but now that I’m an adult it seems like an escape from the horrors of the modern world itself. It’s a constant struggle to make good use of my time, but with the help of the Rosary and the Sacraments it’s something I’ve slowly been overcoming. I’m not sure how common this particular video game pathology is, but those are my two-cents on the media question anyway. Thank you for having Masses offered for everyone and fighting the good fight, and I hope we can meet in heavenly glory some day.

Best Regards,

A Young Fan

What an outstanding and encouraging letter.  Bravo to “Young Fan” for realizing that his video game habit is problematic.  Let me offer a bit of tough love in order to give “Young Fan” something to chew on:

Young Fan, you are a husband and father now.  You are a man, not a child, and certainly not that modern monstrosity, the “man-child”.  Escapism, game-playing, and certainly the deplorable wasting of time is no longer acceptable.  Speaking as a woman, even though I have never been married, let me assure you with complete certainty that for your wife, and eventually your children, the sight of you sitting, zombie-like, staring blankly into a gaming screen will be the OPPOSITE OF ADMIRABLE.  Frankly, for a young father, a young Christian man to flee from reality and his responsibilities as a man, of which ENGAGING AND INTERACTING WITH YOUR FAMILY AT OR NEAR THE TOP OF THE LIST, is pathetic, and the epitome of effeminacy. I think you know this already.

If your video games are on a gaming console, THROW THE ENTIRE CONSOLE AWAY.  I’m not joking.  Put the damn thing in the trash where it belongs.

If your games are on your PC or laptop, delete them and throw away any physical software media.

When I quit television in February ARSH 2009, I went cold turkey.  It is the best way to do it.  Just end it.  “Today is the first day of the rest of your life.”

This decision will make a massive, massive difference not only in your marriage, but also in the lives of your children.  Think of the HOURS and HOURS and HOURS that you will spend being present to your family as the head of the household, and the head of your marriage – conversations and adventures that you will have with your wife and kids that WILL NOT HAPPEN if you continue to “game”, and in doing things that help you to advance in sanctity, such as reading, outdoor activities, keeping physically fit, developing hobbies and skills, developing in-person friendships with other men and families, and, of course, prayer.

You can do it. Be assured of our prayers for you, your wife, your baby daughter in the oven, and all of your children yet-to-come.  Be ADMIRABLE: admirable to your wife, and admirable to your children.

Don’t fantasize about being a great man: ACTUALLY BE A GREAT MAN.

I’ll conclude with St. Paul in his first letter to the Corinthians:

Quando autem factus sum vir, evacuavi quae erant parvuli.

But, when I became a man, I put away the things of a child.


Barnhardt Podcast #092: Ann (she/her), SuperNerd (I/T?)

[Direct link to the MP3 file]

In this episode we briefly remember the events of September 11, 1683 and then discuss in greater detail September 11th of 2001 — and the surreal reality that what is so vivid in our minds is just an entry in a history book for kids today (except the war is still going). Then, consistent with the nature of our usual activities, we addressed modern media and the profaning of God’s name, the transanity insanity of pronouns, and what will get you banned from Twitter, Facebook, and PayPal. And remember: Bruce Jenner is a MAN!
