Young Priest Names Benedict in Canon But Not Francis

[] Father Enrico Bernasconi, an assistant priest in Torremaggiore, San Severo Diocese, Italy, believes that Benedict XVI has not resigned and is still Pope, despite Benedict XVI protesting otherwise.

Bernasconi, who was ordained 3.5 years ago, told (April 28) that he feels encouraged by Benedict’s gestures like keeping his Pontifical name, the white cassock and the signature including the acronym P.P. (Pontifex Pontificum).

Bernasconi therefore decided in his "conscience" that Francis is not a pope and, therefore, names Benedict XVI during Mass.

He follows the example of retired Archbishop Lenga and Father Francesco D’Erasmo.

Edit: what would Don Leonardo Ricotta think of this?

Posters Appear in Rome Denouncing Pope Bergoglio's Modernist Autocracy

Edit: here's a brief edited google translation of Marco Tossatti's report:

[Marco Tosatti] In Rome every now and again there appear posters without permission on the walls; ie posters that do not follow the regular procedure for the City. A modern and updated version of the bills that the Romans unhappily hung at Pasquino, the mutilated statue at Piazza Navona, to protest against injustices and to express their displeasure.

The last case of putting up posters - irregular - and mocking,  concerned the Minister of Education, Valeria Fedeli, a few months ago. But that the walls of Rome are now covered up with dozens of posters against the Pontiff is certainly a big news.

It happened today, and the news broke broke at ADN Kronos in these terms:

"There appeared dozens of posters this morning throughout Rome, hung on the walls of the city, of protest against Pope Francis and his work. The picture across the board shows the image of the pontiff which is particularly darkened and frowning. Below, on the bottom in purple, written with Romansh font: 'In Francis, you police congregations, removed priests, decapitated the Order of Malta and the Franciscans of the Immaculate, ignored Cardinals ...  is this your mercy? ' . The poster is anonymous, does not report acronyms or symbols, but is easily attributable to the conservative circles who increasingly expressed their opposition to the Magisterium, measures and the pontifical line of  Pope Bergoglio. "

Leftist Kulturkampf Against Young Blessed --- Who Always Seems to "Offend"

(Rome) Who owns the school? A particular political direction? How does indoctrination take place in the school? Or in other words: why does a particular political spectrum put so much value to the state and the state's control, which allows control of the school and  in order to control citizens  by the state? A small example from Italy, which is exemplary. The history of northern Italy is not the history of Italy, much less the history of Germany or Austria, Switzerland is the exception anyway. Nevertheless, parallels will be readily apparent. Names and historical contexts change, but a certain methodology remains the same. It's about the history of sovereignty
On 5 October Rolando Rivi was beatified ( see separate report ). The only 14-year-old high school student was murdered by Communist partisans on 10 April 1945 out of hatred for the faith, a few days before the war ended. Kidnapping and execution of the young seminarians took place in the Italian Emilia, in the so-called "Triangle of Death", which was controlled at the end of the war by Communist associations. Armed groups, who were  fighting against fascism and the German occupation forces, but not for freedom and democracy, but for the establishment of a Soviet Republic. A truth of this political side is not  heard happily today  and is largely concealed in the formation of public opinion. That was also the reason why the beatification of the young martyr,  just 68 years after his murder was possible.
But the Left is always outraged and their censorship always works. In Rio Saliceto in Rivis' home,  an exhibition about the young Blessed was shown on the occasion of the beatification. The compulsory education of Rio Saliceto interrupted regular classes for visits to the exhibition. The visit was part of Catholic religious education and was directed, anyway.  only to students who are registered for religious education.

The Rationale

The exhibition  was held in the parish hall "which  some parents wanted  to see as an insult to the Resistance" as the local press reported.  Since the Resistance is called in Italy the partisan resistance "against Nazi fascism." The  main support of armed resistance were Communist organizations.
Under pressure from the parents, the school director ended the exhibition visits. Before school he had a leaflet in which he justified the decision with "lack of time", "to question the exhibition from a historic and didactic point of view in the larger context."
Giuseppe Pagliani, group spokesman for the citizen's  opposition in the council,  sees the decision as merely "another episode of intolerance and censorship to dim the memory of the young martyr, because you want to hide the crimes of the Communist partisans."   There are aspects of resistance, "for which they can only be ashamed. Therefore, you do not want that the students learn that there were communist partisans, who cold-bloodedly murdered a boy of 14 years, while shouting,  'tomorrow we have one priest less.'"  The school's decision is all the greater when, Anne Frank is mentioned. But the memory is a caricature, if it takes place under the ideological sign.

Left censorship

In the "Red Emilia" it always come back to these cases of censorship, as Giuseppe Pagliani. Rolando Rivi was a nuisance for the Communists in 1945 and he is a nuisance for them even today. "The Communist trade union CGIL and Partisan Association ANPI have engaged pressure  for years  to block any attempt to name a street or a place after Rivi.  Efforts were made in several places, including the cities of Reggio Emilia and Modena," said Pagliani. The intention is clear: The general aim was to prevent the name of one of the many innocent victims of the Communist partisans from being known and receiving public importance. "Since Rivi has been beatified, his tragic story is but better known. More and more people learn of what has been concealed. Thus, those who are  influenced by communism like the  Emilia region, have to face their own history, " said Pagliani.

The SSPX A Story of Farewells

(Vienna) The moral theologian of the Society of St. Pius X. and Prior of Vienna, Father Waldemar Schulz, have published in the journal of his parish-church an essay about the current situation of the Society of St. Pius X. and aptly describes the "resistance" and elaborates in particular, that the history of the SSPX is a "history of goodbyes." In the essay is to be found in its entirety at, where he also describes the risk of criticism addiction, anger and fanaticism:

"Thus, there really is a risk going overboard with mercy, justice, and wisdom and losting love of truth, the Church and souls. Yet there are signs, where the danger could be seen - fatally hindered but very often already progressively astray backpedaling in these ideas - namely when the deep peace of the soul is lost in the face of excessive passion, when strong criticism addiction to great anger, yes, a certain fanaticism captures the soul and fills the heart, so that one is constantly occupied with these problems and they begin to absorb more and more every thought, all meditation, absorb all the powers of people who constantly circle about these problems."

Bishop Fellay: "Where is the Continuation in the Council?"

The General Superior of the Society of Pius X yesterday put his finger to the wounds of the ecclesiastical break of Tradition.

 ( During yesterday's feast of St. Martin, Bishop Fellay -- the General Superior of the Society of St. Pius X -- celebrated a Pontifical High Mass in the Parisian church of St. Nicolas-du-Chardonnet.

It is the largest house of God entrusted to the fathers of the Society.

Month of Suffering

The sermon of the Bishop was clear and to the point.

He referred to the time of the negotiations with the Vaticans proposed dogmatic statement as the "month of suffering, of disquiet and anguish for us."

The Society found itself in the same situation as Marcel Lefebvre found in 1974.

Pressure from Rome

It was then that Rome tried to bring great pressure through its local Bishops upon the still authorized seminary of Ecône to bring it in line with the Council.

Msgr Lefebvre resisted this on the 21st of November 1974 with a "declaration of intent".

Therein he repudiated the neo-Modernist and neo-Protestantic tendencies of the Council.

In Assisi?

Msgr. Fellay spoke in his sermon about the break with Tradition, which consummated itself after the Second Vatican in the Conciliar Church.

"Where is Continuity in the Council?" -- he asked.

His answer: "In Assisi? In the kissing of the Koran by John Paul II.?"

'We Want to Be Reminded That Sometimes Sacrifice is Necessary'

The Bishops Ackermann and Genn have unveiled a memorial plaque for two Martyr Priest of the Nazi times -- they refused to give Hermann Goering the Hitler salute.

Nickenich/Wassenach ( of Trier) For two priests, who were brought to the concentration camp Dachau -- Johannes Schulz and Joseph Zilliken -- the Trier Bishop Stephan Ackerman and the Bishop of Muenster, Felix Genn, unveiled the commemorative plaque on Saturday.

The Nickenicher Priest Schulz and his colleague who was active in Wassenach had refused to give Reichsmarschall Hermann Goering the Hitler salute. They were imprisoned for this reason. Both died in 1942 in the concentration camp Dachau. The priests had already been under surveillance since the mid-thirties. The commemorative plaque is located at the Hotel Waldfrieden between Maria Laach and Wassenach.

Bishop Ackermann, who grew up in Nickenich, said, it is important, to remember and recall a culture, to continue working, in order to care for it and forge on. Finally, there are after 70 years following the event fewer and fewer witnesses, "to whom we can listen". He thanked those, who'd conceived the initiative, that now a commemorative plaque can recall the "Marytr Priests". The plaque does not disturb the charm of the place, which witnessed such "dramatic history" , rather it could be a way, that such things are prevented from happening again.

He and Bishop Genn were filled with gratitude in the unveiling and blessing of the tablet, that both priests had witnessed for the faith, said Ackermann. "We want to be reminded that moral courage, bravery and somtimes a readiness to sacrifice are necessary." The Wassenach native, Bishop Genn blessed the plaque after the unveiling.

At the beginning of the celebration, the Nickenicher Pastor Norbert Missong, alongside representatives of politics, Church and society as well as members of Pastor Schulz's family were greeted and he emphasized, that the 27th of May 1940 was an "essential moment of resistance." "Here the pastors had the courage to recognize, that man owes more duty to God than he owes to man." The commemorative plaque is a challenge to each individual, what he is ready to bring for the Faith.
