saying with a loud voice: Woe, woe, woe to the inhabitants of the earth....

What did he mean? Fr. Luigi Villa said that Pope Pius XII spoke of himself as "the last pope".

What did he mean? Fr. Luigi Villa said that Pope Pius XII spoke of himself as "the last pope". 

What Pope Pius XII meant, I can only guess, but from what an SSPX professor at the Virginia seminary told me, it is generally known that Fr. Luigi Villa died as a Sedevacantist.


Pius XII himself said he was the "last Pope"

      Jean Guitton was a noted French Catholic philosopher and theologian (1901-1999).  According to a book by Fr. Luigi Villa, Guitton wrote in L'Osservatore Romano, October 19, 1960, that Pius XII himself had said that he was the "last pope."  Following are excerpts from Fr. Villa's work, Anche John XXIII beato?  (John XXIII  "Beatified" too?), published in June 2000:

     Wrote Jean Guitton (Pantheist and Bergsonian), friend of Giovanni Battista Montini, "Pius XII knew it, he himself said he was the 'last Pope,' the last link of a long chain.  And yet in those years of the 1950's, the Church was thriving.  But Pius XII knew an unprecedented crisis was in the making, 'in the very bosom of the Church,' as Pius X had already said.  And that came about, in fact, with the election of John XXIII.  Modernism exploded violently, in spite of Humanae Generis, issued by Pius XII in 1950.  Jacques Maritain shared this view: "The modernism of the time of Pius X, compared with the modern neo-modernistic fever, was but a mere hay-fever."  In fact, with Pope John XXIII the situation was reversed.  The Progressives popped out from everywhere. 

Pope Pius XII

 . . .  John XXIII presently thought of appointing new Cardinals.  Obviously, the first, whom he personally dictated, was Monsignor Montini, although he knew that Pius XII had kicked him out of the Vatican, and wanted  him excluded from the Conclave, and for that reason he had refused him the purple habit.  And we are still suffering from the consequences of John XXIII's action.  
     That too is a clear indication that John XXIII, far from having been a Pope of transition, was a real reformer and transformer, such as the Church had never known since the days of the Counter-Reformation.  A new revised Church, today called "Conciliar," (quod dixit Cardinal Benelli).

  1. Is Sedevacantism a grave sin?

    1. no i would say its an error or false opinion...there were theologians after vatican one who taught of the possibility however it doesnt mean its an infallible position as some sedes suggest..having said that can a person follow an antipope or true pope teaching material heresy? the answer is no

    2. I have corresponding with dr. adessa. Fr. Villa I knew who the real Pope was from 1958 on. All the rest were in our just Antipopes. That said Pope Benedict was validly elected due to the fact there was no living pope at that time.

    3. I have corresponding with Dr. Adessa. He said Father Villa I knew who the true Pope was since 1958. All the rest were in our just antipopes. Except Benedict was validly elected due to the fact that there was no living pope at the time.

    4. Sorry for the sloppy response. That is what dr. adessa told me. It is wrong to say that Father Villa was a sedevacantist.

  2. Pius XII and Modernism

    From Twentieth Century Harbingers (pages 1094-1099)

    The Revolution Takes Hold Under Pius XII

    "Both advocates and critics of the Revolution of the Second Vatican Council agree that the role of

    Eugenio Maria Giuseppe Giovanni Cardinal Pacelli, who ascended the Chair of Peter on

    March 12, 1939, as Pope Pius XII was instrumental in securing the revolutionaries a foothold on the papacy. As Martinez solidly documents, and as inveterate collaborators of New-Church like Archbishop Annibale Bugnini, C.M., reaffirm, Pius XII opened the Church to "Progressivism" both politically and theologically.

    Under his 19-year-pontificate, the foundation and stepping-stones for the futuristic Newchurch were laid. The following is a short list of decrees and movements initiated by Pope Pius XII that propelled Newchurch forward:

    The Destruction of the Liturgy

    As Archbishop Annibale Bugnini records in his opening chapter to The Reform of the Liturgy 1948-1975 on the well-springs of "liturgical reform," as early as 1942, less than three years into his pontificate, Pope Pius XII assigned a project for liturgical reform (liturgical codification) to Benedictine Father Pio Alfonzo, a liturgist who taught at the College of the Propaganda and advised the Sacred Congregation of Rites. Fr. Alfonzo's "General Norms," however, was not acted upon at that time.

    It was not until four years later, on May 10, 1946, in an audience with Carlo Cardinal Salotti, Prefect for the Congregation of Rites, that Pius XII instructed Salotti to begin a study of the general reform of the liturgy.

    On July 17, 1946, Pius XII determined that a Commission for General Liturgical Restoration be established to consider that nature and substance of a general reform of the liturgy and offer concrete proposals. On May 28, 1948, the pope selected the members of the Commission. Father (later Cardinal) Ferdinando Antonelli, OFM, was named General Director and Fr. (later Archbishop) Annibale Bugnini named Secretary. When the Commission was dissolved in 1960, to make room for the Pontifical Preparatory Commission on the Liturgy established in connection with the forthcoming Second Vatican Council, Bugnini was again appointed to serve as Secretary for the new assembly. After the opening of the Council in 1962 by Pope John XXIII, until its closing in 1964 under Pope Paul VI, Bugnini continued to function in the capacity of peritus (expert) to the Conciliar Commission on the Liturgy. From 1964 to 1969, Bugnini again served as Secretary to the Consilium for the Implementation of the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy (Sacrosanctum Concilium) promulgated by Pope Paul VI on December 4, 1963.

    These seemingly mundane facts are presented here so that there can be no question that Annibale Bugnini knew of what he spoke when he made the following confession:

    In the twelve years of its existence (June 28, 1948 to July 8, 1960), the commission held eighty-two meetings and worked in absolute secrecy. So secret, in fact, was their work that the publication of the Ordo Sabbati Sancti instaurati at the beginning of March 1951 caught even officials of the Congregation of Rites by surprise. The commission enjoyed the full confidence of the

    Pope (i.e. Pius XII), who was kept abreast of its work by Monsignor Montini and even more, on a weekly basis, by Father Bea, confessor of Pius XII..."

    1. pius xii played his share in the destruction of the church liturgically speaking

  3. Dr. Carol Byrne writes:
    "What is certain is that Fr.

    Bugnini could not have been appointed as Secretary of the 1948 Commission without Msgr.
    Montini’s (the future PaulVI of the vernacular) intervention with

    Pius XII, as it was the Secretary of State who, in the normal course of Vatican affairs, had the biggest say in forwarding names for papal appointments.

    Sow Bugnini, reap corruption

    As history has shown, appointing Bugnini as Secretary of the Liturgical Commission was the equivalent of placing Dracula in charge of the blood bank. This monstrous figure was allowed to assume complete control of the Commission and to work against a centralized control of the liturgy vested in the Curia."


  4. At one of these schools Pacelli met Bugnini:

    "In 1894, aged 18, Pacelli began his theology studies at Rome's oldest seminary, the Almo Collegio Capranica,[12] and in November of the same year, registered to take a philosophy course at the "Jesuit" under the influence of Weisshaupt/Rothschild/Leibowitz Pontifical Gregorian University and theology at the Pontifical Roman Athenaeum S. Apollinare. He was also enrolled at the State University, La Sapienza where he studied modern languages and history. At the end of the first academic year however, in the summer of 1895, he DROPPED OUT of both the Capranica and the Gregorian University. According to his sister Elisabetta, the food at the Capranica was to blame.[13] Having received a special dispensation he continued his studies from home and so spent most of his seminary years as an external student. In 1899 he completed his education in Sacred Theology with a doctoral degree awarded on the basis of a short dissertation and an oral examination in Latin."

  5. Why would the Absp. Lefebre name his society for Pius X?

    Pope St. Pius X the last fully-functiong Pope, amid the threat of the Freemason-driven world wars,WARNED.

    Pius XI, locking himself away, MOURNED secularization


    Pope St. Pius X's WARNING

    Pascendi dominici gregis is a Papal encyclical letter promulgated by Pope Pius X on 8 September 1907.

    The pope condemned modernism and a whole range of other principles described as

    "evolutionary", which allowed (FORCED) change to Roman Catholic dogma.




    To the Patriarchs, Primates, Archbishops, Bishops
    and other Local Ordinaries in Peace
    and Communion with the Apostolic See.

    Venerable Brethren, Health and Apostolic Benediction.

    "The office divinely committed to Us of feeding the Lord's flock has especially this duty assigned to it by Christ, namely, to guard with the greatest vigilance the deposit of the faith delivered to the saints, rejecting the profane novelties of words and oppositions of knowledge falsely so called. There has never been a time when this watchfulness of the supreme pastor was not necessary to the Catholic body; for, owing to the efforts of the enemy of the human race, there have never been lacking "men speaking perverse things" (Acts xx. 30), "vain talkers and seducers" (Tit. i. 10), "erring and driving into error" (2 Tim. iii. 13). Still it must be confessed that the number of the enemies of the cross of Christ has in these last days increased exceedingly, who are striving, by arts, entirely new and full of subtlety, to destroy the vital energy of the Church, and, if they can, to

    overthrow utterly Christ's kingdom itself. Wherefore
    We may no longer be silent,

    lest We should seem to fail in Our most sacred duty, and lest the kindness that, in the hope of wiser counsels, We have hitherto shown them, should be attributed to forgetfulness of Our office.

    Gravity of the Situation..."

  6. Paul VI first as Montini under pius XII EXECUYED:

    Best of Fr. Gommar de Pauw: Catholic Traditionalist

    Be Thou Peter!

    Fr. Gommar A. DePauw, J.C.D,
    President of the Catholic Traditionalist Movement

    THE BEST OF... Fr. Gommar A. DePauw

    Be Thou Peter!

    Fr. Gommar A. DePauw, J.C.D,
    President of the Catholic Traditionalist Movement

    This letter was originally sent to Pope Paul VI as a private communication between a priest and the Supreme Pontiff who, two years earlier, had blessed and commissioned him as leader of the Catholic Traditionalist Movement (C.T.M.).

    Only after waiting for three months, when the C.T.M. was informally notified that no formal “fatherly reply” could be expected, was it decided to make the letter public, both in print and on tape, under the title “Be Thou Peter!”

    Rejection of the Conciliar Church

    Your Holiness …. taking a closer look at the “Conciliar” church forced upon us in the name of Vatican II, and simply judging the tree by its fruits, we are tempted to agree with one of your own immediate collaborators in Rome who has been quoted as characterizing the recent Vatican Council as “a sinister farce acted out by a number of good-for-nothings, some of whom, despite the gold crosses on their chests, don't even believe in the Holy Trinity or the Virgin.”

    (Rome's response came in the form of his dismissal from Catholic U and the Major Seminary and denial of Diocese assignment.)

    Soon translated worldwide into Dutch, French, German, Italian and Spanish, the 1967-letter became, and still stands today, as the unequalled “anguished cry” of the post-Vatican II “Suffering Church.”


  7. Probably, some major events will be required before someone who is not Modernist, even only as Traditionalist as Cardinal Burke, can be elected Pope. The events might be of a type which would convince Modernists that God is against them. Such events might be the deaths of several prominent Modernist Cardinals in a short period of time, followed by the death of Francis; the fulfillment of prophecies of doom that were declared to be punishments for Modernism; and a large number of prominent miracles and visions occurring in a Traditionalist context, perhaps including a verified vision in which the Virgin condemned Modernism.

    Another possibility is something which is under the control of human beings: a real, serious threat of a great schism in which millions of Traditionalists would join a second Catholic Church. The prospective formation of the new Church will have been widely publicised, and an Internet site created and advertised. On the Internet site, all Traditionalists will be asked to make a commitment and register as future members of the Church. The Church would be complete with a new Pope, Cardinals, Bishops, and churches. If the organisation planning to form the new Church were successful enough, then Modernists might possibly allow the election of a non-Modernist Pope. This one, single non-Modernist Pope would be a step in the right direction; and with the help of God, he could replace enough Modernists with Traditionalists that Vatican II would be annulled at some time in the future.

    All of these are extreme measures, and all but the last must be taken by God. But probably one or more will be necessary before the Church can have a Pope who is not a Modernist, a Pope who can cleanse the Church of the evil of Modernism.
