Dr. Mazza’s latest video interview with Fatima Souls.

Dr. Mazza en fuego!!! 🔥


8:30 – Dr. Mazza on “What was Benedict XVI doing?” What does Benedict think he accomplished?” He talks about the Peter Seewald interview, and other interviews and statements

11:00 – What are the criterion for being a Pope? Benedict says: the follower of peter is not merely bound to a function (being the Bishop of Rome). The idea that you can have an active Pope, and one which is not.

14:00 – Why he still gives apostolic blessings in his own name, why his title is still His Holiness, why he still wears white and lives in the Vatican.

15:00 – Benedict remains a father in a deep inward sense. Functional vs Sacred.

16:50 – Benedict’s statement about the crisis of the Priesthood after Vatican 2.

20:00 – Statements by Archbishop Georg Gänswein, secretary to Benedict.
26:00 – Benedict may have committed a “substantial error” by trying to abandon his office of pope.
29:00 – Quote from Bergoglio about the “papacy being a sacrament.” (Not in the literal sense, in the sense of it being of sacramental nature). In other words, the idea that “you can never stop being pope until death.”

37:26 – First interpretation – Benedict could resign all public-facing responsibilities, but still be pope. If he believed this, he committed substantial error.

38:45 – Second interpretation – If Benedict thought that by becoming pope gave you a permanent sacramental mission that does not stop by resigning as Bishop of Rome, then you can’t resign.

40:00 – This weekend, Saturday the 27th, there will be a consistory (election of new Cardinals) in Rome, something Francis has not had in about 7 years. However, Pope Francis may visit the shrine of St. Celestine. St. Celestine was the first pope in history to resign, and his anniversary of consecration as bishop in 1294 is this Sunday. Dr. Mazza then talks about the history of St. Celestine.
UPDATE: “Francis praises humility of 13th-century pope who resigned”

50:00 – Dr. Mazza talks about the history of papal resignations, starting with St. Clement.

53:46 – St. Pontian in the year 235.

56:00 – Pope John XII & Leo VIII in the year 963.

58:00 – Pope Benedict IX and Gregory VI

1:00:00 – Pope Innocent the 3rd in 1198 – quotes regarding the papacy being a sacrament (spiritual message).

1:07:30 – Pope Celestine the 5th’s resignation and Pope Boniface VIII.

1:11:00 – Pope Gregory the 12th in the 1400’s – three different “popes,” a Council was held in Constance in 1417.

1:15:00 – Question, Why is knowing who the Pope is important to my Faith?

1:17:45 – Question, What would be the implications for indefectibility and visibility of the church if Benedict passes away leaving Francis in place for some time? Dr. Mazza mentions Innocent II and Anacletus.

1:19:30 – Question, Would Benedict be the oldest living pope in the history of the Church? Yes.

1:19:40 – Question, If Celestine was wrong about the ability to resign, would not that make Boniface VIII an anti-Pope? If Boniface VIII, then would not his addition to the ability of a pope to resign to canon law be a nullify?

1:20:40 – Question, So if Innocent III taught magisterially that the pope is married to his Office, a bond that can only be broken by death, and then a century later Boniface VIII teaches the opposite and changes canon law, because otherwise, Boniface himself would have been antipope… where does this leave us? Would not Innocent’s teaching be infallible as defined at Vatican I?

1:23:00 – Question, If substantial error is a condition for resigning the papacy, would not it also follow that it is a condition for accepting the papacy? If so, and Benedict XVI was in substantial error even before accepting the papacy, would not that mean his acceptance was invalid and ergo he was an antipope?

1:25:00 – George asks Dr. Mazza why Benedict XVI has not put this whole mess to bed by addressing the confusion.

1:31:45 – Question, Bergoglio may not have received permission to accept the papacy from the Jesuit Superior until after his “election,” how could he have accepted without the permission?

1:33:30 – Comment, methinks this is step one of the “papal council.”

1:33:45 – George asks Dr. Mazza what would a Cardinal intervention look like if they stood up and finally called this situation a schism.

1:36:20 – Comment, The person who commented from 1:33:30 added to their comment, saying “democratization of the papacy.”

1:38:40 – Comment, Shia LaBeouf has become Catholic while portraying Padre Pio in an upcoming film. A prayer of thanks for this high-profile witness.

1:39:32 – George comments on modernism and relativism and how Francis is convincing people of new “doctrine,” how people don’t know their faith, and how people don’t know what’s going on.

1:42:50 – Sister Lucy and “diabolical disorientation.”

1:43:30 – Question, Do you think Canon 185 is being misinterpreted? It clearly seems to put forth emeritus as simply a title and not an office in and of itself.

1:44:30 – George talks about Dr. Mazza’s “Pope History” class.

1:46:00 – Transitions to a back-and-forth discussion about Fatima in general, the Miracle of the Sun, Fr. Gruner, and “public prophetic revelation.”

1:48:00 – Comment, “maybe we are supposed to be burning (chastisement).” Transitions into discussion about Our Lady’s message at Akita, about “the living would envy the dead.”Transitions to George talking about the First Five Saturdays.

1:52:30 – Question, “Can we do First Saturdays in a parish location where they are not explicitly recognized during the Mass?” Transitions to discussion regarding the requirements for the First Five Saturdays.

1:57:30 – Question, “What is to argue against a Maccabian-style operation against the Vatican, our church HQ… Is there a reason not to? At this point, what more reason do we need!”

1:58:45 – Question, “To Steel-Man the Argument: What would have to happen, or new evidence would have to emerge, for you to seriously consider that Benedict’s resignation might have been valid and Francis could be pope?”
2:00:00 – Closing statement by George: Encourage and support your priests, they are people to, and need it. Ends with a Hail Mary.

Face In The Dirt Beheading of the Greatest Man Born of Woman


The Beheading of St. John the Baptist (Detail), Caravaggio, ARSH 1608

The Beheading of St. John the Baptist (Detail), Michelangelo Merisi da Caravaggio, ARSH 1608

Our Lord said of John the Baptist “there hath not risen among them that are born of women a greater than John the Baptist.”

John the Baptist, rather than peddle the stone-cold satanic lie that there is something between yes and no, some middle ground between true and false, some compromise between sin and not sin, a limbo between life and death, went face-down in the dirt, hands bound behind his back, as his executioner drove his knee into the small of his back, grabbed him by his hair, pulled his head back, slit his throat, first windpipe, then the jugular vein and carotid artery, and proceeded to saw his head off.

The Freemasons, Sodomites and satanists infesting and attempting to destroy the Church today would condemn John the Baptist as “unmerciful” and “afraid of change”, or of being a “traditionalist ideologue” because he refused to declare that perhaps, in certain circumstances, 2+2 doesn’t ALWAYS equal 4, because to do that, in even the smallest way, denies nothing less than REALITY ITSELF, and John knew that his Cousin was nothing and no one less than REALITY, TRUTH and LOVE Incarnate Himself.

Adultery, fornication and sodomy cannot be both sinful and not sinful at the same time.  Nothing can be one thing AND its opposite at the same time.  These are the foundations of reality itself.

To say that

2+2= 4.0000000000000000000000000000000001
is every bit as false as saying that
2+2 = 8,986,345.

If you come off of 4 IN ANY WAY, you have denied TRUTH, which is to say that you have denied the very existence of God.  And if you do this, if you peddle these lies in the pursuit of worldly power and glory, then the only way “mercy” figures into the discussion is the infinite mercy of God toward the remorseful, contrite, repentant, shriven sinner, because Chabón, you’re gonna need it.

St. John the Baptist, Beheaded, pray for us.

“Uh-GUSS-tin”, not “AUG-uss-teen”.


St. Augustine of Hippo, Gerhard Seghers, mid-1600s.

To be under pressure is inescapable. Pressure takes place through all the world; war, siege, the worries of state. We all know men who grumble under these pressures and complain. They are cowards. They lack splendour. But there is another sort of man who is under the same pressure but does not complain, for it is the friction which polishes him. It is the pressure which refines and makes him noble.

Love begins with a smile, grows with a kiss, and ends with a teardrop.

Put no faith in salvation through the political order.

God has promised forgiveness to your repentance, but He has not promised tomorrow to your procrastination.

What is reprehensible is that while leading good lives themselves and abhorring those of wicked men, some, fearing to offend, shut their eyes to evil deeds instead of condemning them and pointing out their malice.

Because a thing is eloquently expressed it should not be taken to be as necessarily true; nor because it is uttered with stammering lips should it be supposed false.

The Holy Scriptures are our letters from home.

Bad times, hard times, this is what people keep saying; but let us live well, and times shall be good. We are the times: Such as we are, such are the times.

Two criminals were crucified with Christ. One was saved; do not despair. One was not; do not presume.

He who denies the existence of God, has some reason for wishing that God did not exist.

If God seems slow in responding, it is because He is preparing a better gift. He will not deny us. God withholds what you are not yet ready for. He wants you to have a lively desire for His greatest gifts. All of which is to say, pray always and do not lose heart.

Hope has two beautiful daughters; their names are Anger and Courage. Anger at the way things are, and Courage to see that they do not remain as they are.

The greatest kindness one can render to any man is leading him to truth.

Trust the past to the mercy of God, the present to His love, and the future to His providence.

Remember this. When people choose to withdraw far from a fire, the fire continues to give warmth, but they grow cold. When people choose to withdraw far from light, the light continues to be bright in itself but they are in darkness. This is also the case when people withdraw from God.

The truth is like a lion; you don’t have to defend it. Let it loose; it will defend itself.

It is not that we keep His commandments first and that then He loves but that He loves us and then we keep His commandments. This is that grace which is revealed to the humble but hidden from the proud.

No eulogy is due to him who simply does his duty and nothing more.

It seems to me that an unjust law is no law at all.

No one can have God as his father who does not have the Church as his mother.

Anger is a weed; hate is a tree.

Too late came I to love You, O Beauty both so ancient and so new! Too late came I to love You – and behold You were with me all the time . . .

Better that I find You, God, and leave the questions unanswered, than to find the answers without finding You.

Letter From an Absentee Father to His Children

(This is a repost by request from ARSH 2017. If we truly love Pope Benedict, we must pray for him unceasingly and do everything we can to encourage someone to go to him and TELL him, NOT ask him, that his attempted partial resignation was completely invalid before he dies. Blowing smoke up his cassock and telling ourselves the lie that he is playing 5-D underwater chess and dealing in some “code” is false, and will only result in terrible scandal to the pious faithful, AND is an act of horrific indifference and lack of charity towards the Holy Father himself to NOT acknowledge the truth of this situation. Charity proceeds from truth, not the other way around. Effeminate sentimentality is precisely the vice and error that has caused the collapse of the Christian West and enabled the Antichurch to rise. -AB ’22)

Dear Children,

It has been over nine years since I abandoned you and declared myself your “father emeritus”, but I wanted to write this letter to you in the hopes that it would console you.  As I said when I was walking out the door, I have not ceased to be your father, I have just chosen to only be your father in the passive, contemplative, inactive, absentee sense. After all, who is to say how many “fathers” a child can have?  What’s important is not who is or is not your father, but rather what fatherhood MEANS.  Fatherhood for me means withdrawing from the active duties of fatherhood while maintaining the spiritual aspect, and in doing this, stepping aside and making way for another man to become your “active father”.  In doing this, I have expanded fatherhood, thus permanently transforming fatherhood into a collegial, synodal paradigm. At least, that is what I tell myself.

I want you to know that I am fully aware that since I abandoned Your Mother and all of you, that a raging psychopath calling himself your “active father”  has moved into your house and is now raping and beating Your Mother before your eyes on a daily basis. I am also aware that he is beating you, emotionally abusing you, poisoning you, and is exposing you to his cabal of friends, almost all of whom are sodomites/boy rapists.

I want you to know that I am aware of this, and assure you of my closeness to you in prayer.  I hope this consoles you.

Further, I want you to know that things are going to get much, much worse.  Don’t ask me how I know this.  Let’s just say that when I was still your Active Father, I … was made privy to certain… secrets.

The psychopath and his sodomite/boy raping friends are going to rape and beat Your Mother so badly that it will literally require a supernatural miracle to save her life.  She will not die, but she will be raped and beaten unto death.  All of this will be done before your very eyes.  In fact, the psychopath and his sodomite gang will luxuriate in the fact that you, the children, will see this happen.

As for you, my dear, dear children, many of you will not survive this.  You will be beaten, berated, poisoned and some of you will also be raped.  For many of you, this abuse and terror will be so intense that you will abandon Your Mother and commit de facto suicide.  Others of you will turn into exactly the same kind of psychopathic monsters as your “active father” and his gang.  The only promise I can make to you is that at least ONE of you will survive.  It is possible that ALL BUT ONE of you, my children, will be lost.

But take heart!  I am aware of what is happening to you, and I am close to you in prayer.

Now, you may be wondering why it is that I don’t call the police, notify someone, or take any action against the psychopath that is raping and beating Your Mother, and trying as hard as he can to kill all of you.

This is rather difficult to explain, and even more difficult to write, but I will try to explain it simply.  You see, while I am completely responsible for abandoning you, I am also largely responsible for creating the psychopath that is now calling himself your “active father”, all of his sodomite/boy raping gang, and the entire matrix within which they subsist.

In order for me to help you, I would have to admit that not only did I make a terrible, terrible mistake – in fact, in Law it is called a “SUBSTANTIAL ERROR”, but I would also have to admit that my entire adult life, going back at least 60+ years now, was built upon a completely erroneous and false worldview even down to the level of metaphysics.  While I would never do the things that the psychopath who calls himself your “active father” is doing to Your Mother or to any of you children, I did work very hard years ago to create the environment of which he and his gang are a direct product.  And then, nine years ago, I ran away to be your “father emeritus” and left the door standing wide open, and the psychopath and his gang walked into Our Family Home, and began their program of systematic destruction, rape and murder.

Now, kids, I love you, but I’m sure you understand that I simply cannot admit to any of these mistakes, no matter how glaringly obvious they are, and no matter how badly all of you and Your Mother are hurt by them.  To say that my entire adult life and work has been not just merely erroneous, but has been, quite possibly, the most catastrophic thing ever to happen to Our Family is simply impossible.  No one could expect me to humiliate myself like that, and nothing is worth that kind of humiliation.  Nothing.  I’m sure you all understand the position I am in.  This is why I can’t say anything, much less call the police or alert any of your uncles.  Not that alerting your uncles would help – there are only a handful left that aren’t in the psychopath’s gang, and all of your good uncles are effeminate and no good in a fight anyway. Very much like me.

I hope that while Your Mother is being raped and beaten unto death, and you yourselves are picked-off one by one, that you will be consoled knowing that I have been saved any public humiliation, and, I repeat, that I am fully aware of what is happening to you, and that I am close to you in prayer.

My advice is, appease the psychopath that calls himself your “active father”, and maybe he will kill you last. That’s what I am going to do.

Pray for me, and be consoled by my awareness of what is happening to you and my closeness to you in prayer-

Your “Contemplative Father Emeritus” (at least that’s what I call myself)

Pope Benedict XVI Ratzinger, the one and only living Pope, whether he likes it or not. Pray for him.

The Third Barnhardt Axiom

Barnhardt Axiom #1: If you can’t stand in front of it and physically defend it with a rifle, then it isn’t really yours, and probably never was.

Barnhardt Axiom #2: The culture has degraded such that seeking and/or holding office, especially national-level office, is, in and of itself, proof that a given person is psychologically and morally unfit to hold public office.

BARNHARDT AXIOM #3: If full-on kinetic World War 3 breaks out, the worst possible outcome for humanity would be that the former-US/Washington DC regime win.

In the style of Paul Harvey, here is “The REST of the Story” about King St. Louis IX…

Over the transom…


The sainted king told me that several people among the Albigenses came to the Count of Montfort, who was then guarding the land of the Albigenses for the king, and asked him to come and look at the body of our Lord, which had become blood and flesh in the hands of the priest. And the Count of Montfort said, “Go and look at it yourselves, you who do not believe it. As for me, I believe it firmly, holding as holy Church teaches of the sacrament of the altar. And do you know what I shall gain,” said the count, “in that during this mortal life I have believed as holy Church teaches? I shall have a crown in the heavens, above the angels, for the angels cannot but believe, inasmuch as they see God face to face.”

He told me that there was once a great disputation between clergy and Jews at the monastery of Cluny. And there was at Cluny a poor knight to whom the abbot gave bread at that place for the love of God; and this knight asked the abbot to suffer him to speak the first words, and they suffered him, not without doubt. So he rose, and leant upon his crutch, and asked that they should bring to him the greatest clerk and most learned master among the Jews; and they did so. Then he asked the Jew a question, which was this: “Master,” said the knight, “I ask you if you believe that the Virgin Mary, who bore God in her body and in her arms, was a virgin mother, and is the mother of God?” And the Jew replied that of all this he believed nothing. Then the knight answered that the Jew had acted like a fool when—neither believing in her, nor loving her—he had yet entered into her monastery and house. “And verily,” said the knight, “you shall pay for it!” Whereupon he lifted his crutch and smote the Jew near the ear, and beat him to the earth. Then the Jews turned to flight, and bore away their master, sore wounded. And so ended the disputation.

The abbot came to the knight and told him he had committed a deed of very great folly. But the knight replied that the abbot had committed a deed of greater folly in gathering people together for such a disputation; for there were a great many good Christians there who, before the disputation came to an end, would have gone away misbelievers through not fully understanding the Jews.

“And I tell you,” said the king, “that no one, unless he be a very learned clerk, should dispute with them; but a layman, when he hears the Christian law mis-said, should not defend the Christian law, unless it be with his sword, and with that he should pierce the mis-sayer in the midriff, so far as the sword will enter.”

“The most terrifying force comes from the hands of Men who wanted to be left alone…”

“The most terrifying force comes from the hands of Men who wanted to be left alone. They try, so very hard, to mind their own business and provide for themselves and those they love. They resist every impulse to fight back, knowing the forced and permanent change of life that will come from it. They know, that the moment they fight back, their lives as they lived them, are over.

The moment the Men who wanted to be left alone are forced to fight back, it is a form of suicide. They are literally killing off who they used to be. Which is why, when forced to take up violence, these Men who wanted to be left alone, fight with unholy vengeance against those who murdered their former lives. They fight with raw hate, and a drive that cannot be fathomed by those who are merely play-acting at politics and terror.

TRUE TERROR will arrive at these people’s door, and they will cry, scream, and beg for mercy… but it will fall upon the deaf ears of the Men who just wanted to be left alone.”
