Catholic Doomsday clock set to "Magisterial"

The Catholic Doomsday clock was initiated in 2013, as a way of warning against the inevitable meltdown that would follow should Pope Francis attempt to say anything "infallibly".

Whereas previous popes have refused to "go nuclear" since infallibility was defined in the 19th century, there has been an increasing risk that Pope Francis would say something mindlessly stupid ex cathedra.

nuclear explosion

Is the Vatican about to go nuclear?

The Pope has so far used a variety of weapons in an attempt to impose a new version of Catholicism: probably the least aggressive are tweets (produced by a teenage intern), which are indistinguishable from the platitudes of the Dalai Lama; more striking are his "air attacks" consisting of new off-the-cuff doctrines expressed on aeroplane journeys, and usually "explained" and "interpreted" afterwards; he is also a dab hand at deploying sockpuppets (Spadaro, Ivereigh, Faggioli, Marx, Daneels, oh there's too many to name...) to say the unthinkable, usually with a healthy dose of abuse thrown in.

Then we come to Amoris Laetitia, ghost-written, not based on anything agreed at the synods it followed, not even properly read by the Pope. A ticking bombshell, which brave bomb-disposers have attempted to defuse with DUBIATM technology. Still it continues to tick, tick, tick...

We may ignore Laudato Si', an attempt at building a "green" bomb which would destroy minds but not doctrine. Well, everyone else does.

Now, however, the threat level has reached "Magisterial". All the changes due to Vatican II, even the ones which are nothing at all to do with Vatican II, have been declared "irreversible".


Like his Popemobile, Pope Francis has no brakes, and no reverse gear.

Yes, the Spirit of Vatican II has won, and the threat level is now Magisterial. Pope Francis can repeal decisions made by his predecessors, such as Benedict XVI, John-Paul II, Pius X, Pius V, Peter, ... and even Jesus. BUT NOBODY ELSE HAS THE NUCLEAR CODES.

So the threat level is definitely Magisterial, if not Hysterical, "What I say goes, and cannot be contradicted, even if it contradicts Catholic teaching."

Doomsday clock

Theologians warn that some heresy may soon be proclaimed Infallibly.

Excuse me while I head for my bunker.


  1. But have you not tried the new wonder product "Situation Ethics Plus" containing the new ingredient from the South American rain forest AL304? Approved in Brussels it will save you all the embarrassment of having to sit in the pew whilst others take communion or even worse having to go to confession. It is not only available for the divorced and remarried but will work in many other conditions such as most of the seven deadly sins. Some rare side effects have been reported such as uncontrolled weeping, feelings of being attacked with a pitchfork, gnashing of teeth and and burning sensations. If you do experience any of these please do NOT bother your Parish Priest.

  2. After total eclipse of the Sun, irreversible hurricane hits the Corpus Christi. Corpus Christi still stands!

  3. First of all, unless I hear words "anathema sit" I will not loose sleep. The only way I see it happening is if he is going to be proclaimed a formal heretic and judge himself consequently. At that point he wouldn't be pope and his hands would not be tied to this law of letter "rigidness".

    If that happens anything goes. Remember that all will seem lost and that amazing reversal will happen just then!!

  4. Brilliant!
    Since he has been hindering Cardinal Sarah, this appears to be the purpose of his utterance: ... even the ones which are nothing at all to do with Vatican II, have been declared "irreversible".

    And now the wreckers have no obstacle and have the pope's word to back what they do.

  5. The best comment I've read on the "irreversibility" of the Liturgy. Thank you and God help us.

  6. Fr Gommer de Pauw (former Catholic Seminary Teacher in Rome and expert Catholic Canon Lawyer) stated at his Lecture in Chicago in 1967, that the documents rejected at Vatican II ended up being forced upon the world by Bishops out of communion with the Pope.

    Read "Conciliar or Catholic" Fr Gommer de Pauw 1967 online. The entire Lecture is transcribed online. There is also a recorded audio version on YOUTUBE, but only half of the Talk was recorded.

  7. PS Also watch Canon Lawyer Fr Gregory Hesse's talks on YOUTUBE.
