Feast of Sts. Peter & Paul


"These times of not being able to receive Catholic Sacraments have been prophesied for centuries. This will pass. However there are many whose emotions rule them as opposed to their reason, and they can't persevere. 

People need to change their thinking from: 

Where can I go to Mass?


How can I help the True Church/Pope in exile?

If they adopted the later, this terrible Crisis [the Apostasy] would end sooner ... they would quite likely stand a better chance to receive True Catholic Sacraments much more frequently also."

(From, CAC, "We Have to Realize No One Around Us is Going to a True Mass", 03/20/2015)




"Violent hands will be laid on the Supreme Head of the Catholic Church. ... Yes, 

yes, the flock will become small." (End Times Prophecy of Bp. Wittman d. 1833)




The Suffering Holy Father Predicted by Our Lady of Fatima:

Pope Gregory XVII (Elected Oct 26, 1958 - Died in Exile May 2, 1989)


 Click: Film clip of Gregory XVII which got past Jewish/N.O. media censors


1967 Italian film footage of suffering pontiff Gregory XVII, ("Siri") making a MANDATORY (by his captor's will) public appearance. NOTE: The holy Catholic mystic Marie-Julie Jahenny, who related of the Hostage Pope's hidden papacy, had it revealed to her the means by which the Enemy would achieve its stealthy incarceration (sede impediti) of Christ's Vicar: "Arms recently invented will be taken up; day and night they will encamp around his prison." (March 13, 1878) And on August 10, 1880: "If the prisoner martyr (Pope) directs a call (for help), it will be forbidden, under pain of torture and death, for any kingdom to rush in response to his call."



Abp. Pintonello (d. 2001) took part in the clandestine meetings with the Hostage Pope,

His Holiness Gregory XVII, at the Istituto Ravasco convent in Rome, Italy in June, 1988.


His Excellency, Archbishop Arrigo Pintonello (who was brought in by Fr. Tran to assist the Hostage pope in June 1988), discussing Gregory XVII, in a 1996 interview, said he "was the greatest *intellectual genius I've ever met." And in a recorded gasp like Jeremiah, lamented how Christ could permit the Cardinals to do this to him! (i.e., the violent coup at the 1958 Conclave).

(Source: Videotaped Interview by Mel Gibson & Staff, of **Abp. Pintonello Italy, 1996)


*Gregory XVII had become a priest at the early age of twenty-two, and had won a doctorate in theology the following year at the Gregorian University, the only member of the class to do it with full points. He was a theology professor at twenty-four, a bishop at thirty-seven and a was made cardinal by Pius XII at forty-six.


**Msgr. Pintonello (who refused to sign any of the Vatican II Documents) was an Archbishop from the ranks of the Military Chaplains. He was designated Military Ordinary (Chief of Military Chaplains) in 1953. During his active clerical life he was commissioned in 1941 Chaplain Chief Inspector of 360 Chaplains of the CSIR and of the ARMIR, the Italian Army on the Russian Front. To him is due the organization and construction of 380 cemeteries for the war dead, from Botosani in Bessarabia to the Bend of the Don. Decorated with two Military Crosses, he also earned a solemn Commendation for the work of Christian piety in which he was involved in those dramatic and painful times. He was a Rector of two Pontifical Regional Seminaries, Viterbo and Salerno, for the training of young future priests. 



 Gregory XVII's Secret Secretary of State, His Excellency Carlo Cardinal Taramasso (d. 1989)


Exclusive TCW pictures of *Mon. Carlo Taramasso, who was made a Cardinal by the Hostage Pope, Gregory XVII, in June 1988 at the Istituto Ravasco convent in Rome, Italy - and served as His Holiness' (secret) Secretary of State for 9 months before his (Card. Taramasso's) mysterious death on March 16, 1989. (From L/R Cardinal Taramasso's ordination to the priesthood 1952; a picture of His Eminence c. 1980's.)


*An older parishioner of his, related the following story when asked by TCW the following question:


"What kind of priest was Carlo Taramasso?" 


"He was the best one," was his ready answer.


This is his story.  He lost his first child, a son, as a baby.  The second, also a boy, needed a complicated surgery in order to survive.  He could not afford to pay for the operation, and he felt helpless.  His priest, Fr. Taramasso, had worked in a hospital in Rome with a doctor whose specialization was pediatrics and, this type of surgery.  Fr. Taramasso arranged the whole thing, at no cost to the parents.  The child was saved and became a grown man with a family of his own!

This is the type of priest that Carlo Taramasso was, he did his best for everybody.  He was known for his intelligence and was a tireless worker for his spiritual children.

The sufferings of the Church will be much greater than at any previous time in her history. But God will raise a holy Pope, and the Angels will rejoice. Enlightened by God, this man will rebuild almost the whole world through his holiness. He will lead everyone to the true Faith. Everywhere, the fear of God, virtue, and good morals will prevail. He will lead all erring sheep back to the fold, and there shall be one faith, one law, one rule of life, and one baptism on earth. All men will love each other and do good, and all quarrels and wars will cease."


St. Nicolas of Fluh on the Triumph of Our Exiled Holy Father



"It is granted to few to recognize the true Church amid the darkness of so many schisms and heresies, and to fewer still so to love the truth which they have seen as to fly to its embrace."

(St. Robert Bellarmine, Church Doctor)


"... she [the Church] became so weak that she could not support herself. Then
Our Lord gave her a staff to support herself upon, and a veil to cover her head
In her desolation 
she bitterly sobbed, and deplored the solitude in which her children had left her."

(End Times Vision of Ven. Elizabeth Canori Mora d. 1825)

To the fact, that indeed "Cardinal" Leinart was a Freemason. 


"It was Cardinal Leinart, another Freemason, who in 1950 petitioned Pius XII for permission to celebrate the Easter Vigil at night rather than in the morning - and this for "pastoral reasons". 44 Frs. Antonelli and Bugnini were glad to assist. What resulted was a new rite ..." -Rama Coomaraswamy, "The Destruction of the Christian Tradition," p. 246, 2006 

"The Destruction of the Christian Tradition",

Chapter 12 The  Liturgical Revolution, pp. 246-247 

"In 1948 Pius XII established the 'Commission for Liturgical Reform.' Its director was Rev. Ferinando Antonelli, O.F.M, (later Cardinal) and the Secretary the Rev. Annibale Bugnini, C.M. (later Archbishop). It is these two individuals who have primarily been responsible for the various steps that culminated in the 'Novus Ordo Missae'

We have already presented evidence that Archbishop Bugnini was a Freemason. 43 The Freemasons have long dreamed of infiltrating, and indeed, of taking over the Church. It was Cardinal Leinart, another Freemason, who in 1950 petitioned Pius XII for permission to celebrate the Easter Vigil at night rather than in the morning - and this for 'pastoral reasons'. 44 Frs. Antonelli and Bugnini were glad to assist. What resulted was a new rite with 1) optional prayers; 2) the use of the vernacular; and 3) the rubric directing the celebrant to "sit and listen" rather than read from the  altar. Then in 1953 the immemorial midnight Eucharistic fast was reduced from midnight to three hours. ... The next step occurred in 1955 when a new Holy Week rite was introduced. It contained the following key features: 1) everything was short and simple; 2) the priest faced the people during the essential parts of the rite; 3) the prayers at he foot of the altar and the Last Gospel were suppressed; and 4) the laity recited the Our Father aloud with the priest. The Palm Sunday service was altered along similar lines. Six of the collects, the ancient rite for the Blessings of the Palms, and the Gloris Laus et honor at the door were all suppressed. In addition the recitation of the Passion was shortened so as to omit the accounts of the anointing at Bethany and the Last Supper. Still more, the Triduum Sacrum or the sevices of the last three days of Holy Week along with the beautiful Office ofTenebrae were virtually destroyed; the Mass of the Presanctified on Good Friday was abolished and replaced with a simple communion service, and contrary to immemorial custom, a genuflection was prescribed at the prayer for the Jews. The Holy Saturday Vigil was dramatically changed, with its lessons reduced from twelve to four. There was also a drastic modification of the traditional rite for the Blessing of the New Fire and the Paschal Candle. The following year the ancient Vigil Service for Pentecost Eve was entirely suppressed. The liturgical revolution was well on its way."

"I saw St. Peter's. A great crowd of men was trying to pull it down... . Lines connected these men one with another and with others throughout the whole world. I was amazed at their perfect understanding. The demolishers, mostly apostates and members of different sects, broke off whole pieces and worked according to rules and instructions. They wore white aprons bound with blue riband. In them were pockets and they had trowels stuck in their belts. The costumes of the others were *various. " 


*(Such as Satanic Masons masquerading in vestments -TCW)

"I saw heart-rending misery ... I saw Jews standing around the doorways (overseeing the assault). All this grieved me deeply. Then my Heavenly Spouse bound me as He Himself had been bound to the pillar, and He said: 'So will the Church yet be bound. She will be tightly bound before she shall again rise.' " 

"I see the Church alone, forsaken by all and around her strife, misery, hatred, treason, resentment, total blindness. I see messengers sent on all sides from a dark central point with messages that issue from their mouths like black vapor, enkindling in the breast of their hearers rage and hatred. I pray earnestly for the oppressed!--In those places in which some souls still pray I see light descending; but on others, pitchy darkness. The situation is terrible! May God have mercy! O city!, O city, (Rome) with what art thou threatened! The storm approaches--be on thy guard!"

Probability Insufficient for Administering of Sacraments 


(Key Point in Moral Theology is: When in Doubt, REFRAIN)



It is a grave responsibility of all Catholics to prove to themselves that the sacraments where they are attending are licit [lawful] in the eyes of Christ's Church, for if Catholics ever approach the sacraments without knowing for certain that the ministers have [BOTH] valid holy orders and have been given *canonical approval [authorization to function], they put themselves outside the Church.


*CHURCH AUTHORITY. Those who are received into the ecclesiastical hierarchy are not chosen by the people, or by secular authority, but are placed in the degrees of power of orders by sacred ordination. In the supreme pontificate the person lawfully elected, and freely accepting the election, receives the power of jurisdiction by divine right. All others receive jurisdiction by canonical mission (Canon 109, 1917 Code of Canon Law).




CHAPTER VII, SECTION I: Probable Opinions of Validity 


In conferring the Sacraments (as also in the Consecration in Mass) it is never allowed to adopt a probable course of action as to validity and to abandon the safer course. The contrary was explicitly condemned by Pope Innocent XI. (See his condemnation below -TCW). To do so would be a grievous sin against religion, namely an act of irreverence towards what Christ our Lord has instituted; it would be a grievous sin against charity, as the recipient would probably be deprived of the graces and effect of the Sacrament; it would be a grievous sin against justice, as the recipient has a right to valid Sacraments, whenever the minister, whether ex officio or not, undertakes to confer a Sacrament. In the necessary Sacraments there is no doubt about the triple sin; in Sacraments that are not necessary there will always be the grave sacrilege against religion. 

Henry Davis, S.J. 

Moral and Pastoral Theology 
London: Sheed & Ward, 1935 
Volume III, page 27 




Various Errors on Moral Subjects (That are formally condemned by the Church):


[The following is] Condemned by a degree of the Holy Office, March 4, 1679: 


1. It is not illicit in conferring sacraments to follow a probable opinion regarding the value of the sacrament, the safer opinion being abandoned, unless the law forbids it, convention or the danger of incurring grave harm. Therefore one should not make use of probable opinions only in conferring baptism, sacerdotal, or episcopal orders. (Denzinger 1151)

Ecclesiastical Approbation

In Today's Catholic World ( carries the approbation in writing of the Holy See in exile. It faithfully adheres to the rules for Catholic Journals mandated by Leo XIII in the Apostolic Constitution Officiorum ac Munerum, January 25, 1897 - so heavily re-stressed by Pius X in Pascendi Dominici Gregis, September 8, 1907

Note: A member of the Hierarchy related to two current members of the Papal Restoration Campaign Staff, that Our Holy Father, Pope Gregory XVIII,  views so called, Thuc "consecrations" as at best doubtful. Which to keep it simple, in the mind of the Church means, they never occurred. Bp. Thuc with his wildcat attempted "consecrations" was acting on his own mandate (powered by the devil). This is without dispute, as at one point he begged forgiveness from Antipope Paul VI for attempting to consecrate a group (of Alumbrados [Illuminists]) in Palmar de Troya, Spain - bishops, without a papal mandate.



The Unholy Birthplace of the Novel/Sedevacantist Sect? 

Looking down the street today [rue Garibaldi], that Bp. Thuc's run down apartment #22 was located on in

Toulon, France. Much of Thuc's scandalous/sacrilegious acts were motivated by a desperate need of money.

Facts Casting Grave Doubt About the Validity of the Thuc "Consecrations":

  • He attended the false Vatican Council II and signed its decrees;
  • He publicly chastised the whole Council for not being ecumenical enough;
  • He tried to get the Council to accept female equality in the church;
  • With the possible exception of the Sacrament of the Eucharist, he never stated that the Sacraments of the Vatican II church were invalid, rather only that they were rejected by God;
  • He consistently signed his documents with titles given him by the Vatican II church;
  • He referred to John XXIII as a saintly pope;
  • He acknowledged Paul VI as Holy Father;
  • He "ordained"/"consecrated" great numbers of men as priests and bishops without requiring them to renounce their false sects;
  • He "ordained"/"consecrated" men wholly unfit to be ministers, this included a notorious homosexual who was at the time in full communion with the Vatican II church;
  • He regularly served as an acolyte at the new mass when in France;
  • He concelebrated the new mass with a Vatican II bishop on at least several occasions;
  • He heard confessions of Vatican II sectarians with the permission of the Vatican II bishop;
  • Before his death, he exhorted some of his progeny to return to the Vatican II church;
  • He complained that certain oriental eating customs were excluded from Holy Mass;
  • He was said to have been physically and psychologically worn out;
  • His mental soundness had been publicly questioned by his contemporaries;
  • Monetary gain has been acknowledged by his friends as being a motivating factor in his conferring of Holy Orders;
  • He admitted lying to a Vatican II priest in his autobiography;
  • His own friend said that he would often speak with duplicity;
  • He only acted like a traditionalist when around other traditionalists;
  • He admitted to simulating “mass”;
  • He admitted that he withheld his sacramental intention when conferring Sacred Orders.  
    Note: On 10 different occasions, i.e., 10 FAKE ceremonies!

on an Alumbrados Heretic/Insurance Salesman, Mr. Gomez, in Spain on Jan 1, 1976


Pictured above is one example of a self-admitted by Bishop Thuc himself, 100% FAKE episcopal consecration he "performed". (Bishop Thuc would later formally state he was withholding his sacramental intention (a sacrilege) when "consecrating" Gomez (without a papal mandate: another sacrilege), even though Bishop Thuc had written and signed an official *document declaring that he did consecrate Clemente Dominguez y Gomez on January 1, 1976.) ???


*"I Peter Martin Ngo-Dinh Thuc, titular Archbishop of Bulla Regia certify that, on the first day of January 1976, I conferred the tonsure and minor orders, as well as the major orders (namely subdiaconate, diaconate and priesthood) on the following persons:


Clemente Dominguez y Gomez, born in Seville, National Identity Number 28279369 [...]


I further certify that these Bishops and Priests pertain to the Order of the Carmelites of the Holy Face, founded in Seville on 23rd December 1975.


The Mother House of this Order is at No. 20, Call Redes in Seville. The Founder and Father General is His Excellency Clemente Dominguez y Gomez, Bishop.


With my own hand and pen I sign this document in order to procure all effects ecclesiastical and civil.


Given with my seal,


Twelfy day of January in the year of Our Lord one thousand nine hundred and seventy six

Archbishop of Bulla Regia.



The Church’s minimum requirement for accepting the validity of a Sacrament is “moral certainty.” Moral certainty is one“which excludes all prudent fear of error, such that the opposite is reputed as altogether improbable.”

Now in weighing all of the above evidence, the question becomes:

Does the certainty of Bishop Thuc’s consecrations reach such a level as to exclude all prudent fear of error?

Is the possibility that he did not validly consecrate, altogether improbable?

It seems to me that no objective person possessing the use of right reason could conclude that Bishop Thuc’s consecrations were certain to the degree that they excluded all prudent fear of error, such that the opposite is reputed as altogether improbable.

Catholics, therefore, must reject the validity of Bishop Thuc’s consecrations. And if we must reject Bishop Thuc’s consecrations, we of course must also reject all of the ordinations and consecrations emanating from the Thuc progeny, for the Thuc "bishops" cannot supply for what was originally wanting to the Sacrament of Orders – one cannot give to others that which they do not possess themselves. So the lack of moral certitude by which Catholics must reject the validity of Bishop Thuc’s "Orders" he "conveyed"must also be applied to Bishop Thuc’s progeny.
