Mary Ann Kreitzer Supports and Promotes War Crimes


I have written numerous times here about Mary Ann Kreitzer who runs the blog "Les Femmes - The Truth".  Mary Ann presents herself as a traditionalist, pro life Catholic.  Yet, she has consistently promoted hate and division on her blog, but one of the latest posts seems to top them all.

Mary Ann Kreitzer: Walking Definition of Hypocrisy

I have written several times about popular traditionalist blogger Mary Ann Kreitzer.  She has been in the public eye for decades, as a pro life warrior and active on the Internet.  My problem with Mary Ann is that she presents herself as a loyal, faithful Catholic whose life is centered around obedience to God and the Catholic Church, and yet her whole shtick is all about pushing dangerous misinformation and lies that go in complete contradiction to what she claims to profess.    

Mary Ann Kreitzer, like so many traditionalists, is the walking definition of hypocrisy.  She professes to live a life of virtue and honesty and yet she posts one lie after another on her blog, promoting disunity and divisiveness.  

Here are just a few examples.

Review of "Nefarious": It's Not a Movie About the Devil

Let me preface this post by saying that as a practicing Catholic, I absolutely 100% believe that the devil is real, that he is the avowed enemy of Jesus Christ and His Followers, and that demonic possession is just as real. 

I also believe that most Hollywood movies about the devil and demonic possession are way over the top and that their main purpose is just to scare people.  Movies are not a place anyone should go to learn about the reality of Satan and the role he plays in the world.  

Now on to my review of the movie, "Nefarious."

EWTN Proves Once Again That They Are Not Catholic

Pee Wee Herman a/k/a Raymond Arroyo and his "Papal Posse" were at it once again, proving that they are the enemy of Pope Francis and the Catholic Church.  

Here is the story.  

In 2021, when Pope Francis promulgated his Motu Proprio, Traditionis Custodes, which limited the practice of the Latin Mass in diocesan parishes, some bishops tried invoking Canon 87 in an attempt to ignore Pope Francis and basically thumb their noses at him.  They really thought they had pulled a fast one on the Holy Father.

But much to their surprise and consternation, the Holy Father has just pulled the rug out from under them. If it was a game of chess, Pope Francis would be saying "checkmate."  (Apologies for the mixed metaphors)

Papal Tweet - True Meaning of Love

To love like Jesus means to serve & give our life. To serve means to put others’ interests first, to fight the cancer of indifference, to share the gifts God has given us. To give our life means to leave egoism behind, to make our lives a gift, spending ourselves for all in need.

Daily Papal Tweet - Humilty


Without humility we cannot encounter God, we cannot experience salvation, and we cannot even encounter our neighbour, the brother and sister living near us.

Mary Ann Kreitzer, Quo Vadis?

My last post, "Overturning Roe v. Wade Will Not Stop Abortion. But It Could Destroy The Nation" discussed the failure of the pro life movement to stop abortion, despite their apparent "victory" in overturning Roe v. Wade.  As I pointed out, the vast majority of America still believes that abortion should be legal. Therefore, the war against abortion has not ended but only entered into a new and escalated stage.

I used a post from Mary Ann Kreitzer to prove my point. Mary Ann did a post about the Left's response to the leaked Supreme Court decision and she used her usual modus operandi of attacking and demeaning those with whom she disagrees.  

Before I did my post, I left a short comment on her blog which, as usual, she did not post. Mary Ann never posts my comments but I don't mind because I leave them for her, hoping it will trigger something in her to think about what she has written.  

However, Mary Ann obviously saw my blog post the next day and this sent her over the deep end.  She did a blog post in which she identifies me only as "Mary the Troll".  She, of course, did not address my blog post in any way, using only my brief comment to attack me.

Overturning Roe v. Wade Will Not Stop Abortion. But It Could Destroy The Nation.


I was in high school in 1973 when the Supreme Court legalized abortion for the entire country.  Almost 50 years later, I still remembering looking at the headline in the newspaper in disbelief.  How could we legalize the murder of babies? I sat down and cried. 

I have gone through many political identities in the ensuing half century, from very liberal to ultra conservative to rejection of both. But one constant belief through it all has always been that abortion is evil. 

Now that it is almost certain that Roe v. Wade is about to be overturned, I should be thrilled. It is something I have wanted since 1973. 

But being a lot older and a little wiser, I now realize that the pro life movement has always been wrong.  No, it has not been wrong that abortion is evil.  The pro life movement was wrong in their approach to abortion. They have not just labeled abortion as evil. They have  vilified the people who support abortion, calling them evil and even satanic.   As a movement, they have never shown compassion or understanding for those who support abortion.

Patrick Coffin Proves That Traditionalists Never Get Tired of The Same Old Worn Out Lies

When I started this blog over 10 years ago, I was a radical traditionalist.  I believed that the Traditional Latin Mass was the salvation not only of the Church but of the whole world.  Like other rad trads, I had little use for the post conciliar Church, believing that we needed to reverse all the reforms instituted post Vatican II.

Quite unintentionally, this blog became a record of my journey out of that cult.  I believe my journey began when I consecrated my life to the Blessed Mother in 2011.  Through her guidance and protection, I attended my last TLM in June 2014 and have never looked back except in gratitude that I am no longer a part of that world of anger, hate, rebellion and deception.  

I have, of course, followed the Traditionalist cult and have written many posts about their lies and rebellion against the Magesterium of the Church.  Pope Francis has finally started to bring down the curtain on this schismatic movement with Traditionis Custodes and, as expected, this has only hardened the hearts of the Traditionalists even more.

The ire of the Traditionalists is almost completely centered on Pope Francis, whom they label a heretic. Many claim he is not the legitimate pope.  Patrick Coffin, who ironically was the host at one time of "Catholic Answers", has released a video entitled, "Top Seven Pieces of Evidence That Francis Is An Antipope."  If you really want to subject yourself to this garbage, you can view it HERE.  

I am going to dissect this video because I think it is an excellent example of the absolute necessity for Traditionis Custodes and of the lies Trads tell themselves and anyone else foolish enough to listen.

The Traditionalists Are Their Own Worst Enemy

As I have written before, Summorum Pontificum had basically gifted the Traditional Latin Mass to the Traditionalists, in effect giving the Trads authority over the bishops.  If someone wanted a Latin Mass, they merely had to go to the pastor of a church, who was obligated to accommodate them.  The only time a bishop got involved is if the pastor denied the request.  The bishop was then required to accommodate the Trads, and if he couldn't or wouldn't, the matter would go to Ecclesia Dei.  

From Summorum Pontificum:

Art. 5, §1 In parishes where a group of the faithful attached to the previous liturgical tradition stably exists, the parish priest should willingly accede to their requests to celebrate Holy Mass according to the rite of the 1962 Roman Missal. He should ensure that the good of these members of the faithful is harmonized with the ordinary pastoral care of the parish, under the governance of the bishop in accordance with Canon 392, avoiding discord and favouring the unity of the whole Church.

Art. 7. If a group of the lay faithful, as mentioned in Art. 5, §1, has not been granted its requests by the parish priest, it should inform the diocesan bishop. The bishop is earnestly requested to satisfy their desire. If he does not wish to provide for such celebration, the matter should be referred to the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei.

Art. 8. A bishop who wishes to provide for such requests of the lay faithful, but is prevented by various reasons from doing so, can refer the matter to the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, which will offer him counsel and assistance.

Pope Benedict XVI's actions were really unprecedented.  I don't think you will ever find an instance in all the 2000 years of Church history where priests and bishops were so completely sidelined and stripped of their authority and the laity was allowed to make unilateral decisions apart from the rest of the Church.  Pope Benedict, in effect, turned the authority of the Church upside down.  The Traditionalists were put in charge with no supervision whatsoever.  

Instead of being grateful and humble, the Trads felt emboldened.  They felt invincible.  They believed that they are divinely entitled to the freedom given to them by Pope Benedict, and no one, not even a Pope, has the authority to deprive them of that right.  

Not only were the Trads given carte blanche with the Mass, they were allowed to use the older form of all seven sacraments.  Entire churches were taken over by traditional orders as they traveled back in time to the 1950's.  The post conciliar Catholic Church had no relevance in their world.

Traditionalists Live In Their Own Reality


I have to say, I kinda feel sorry for the Traditionalists in the Catholic Church.  

They were going along so sure of themselves, secure in the belief that they were the only real Catholics in the world.  They were confident that they were going to get rid of heretical Pope Francis, confident that the dreaded Novus Ordo Mass would be stamped out of existence for the travesty it is and that the Traditional Latin Mass would reign supreme as the Mass of the Roman Rite.  They believed with all their hearts that Vatican II would be exposed for the sham Council it was, and that the Church would be returned to the glory days of the 1950's.  

And then came Traditionis Custodes.  They were traveling down the highway at 60 mph and with little warning, a wall popped up in front of them and slowed them down to a crawl.  Suddenly things didn't look so rosy anymore. This looked like it might be the end of the line for them.

The Traditionalists Destroy Themselves With Their Lies

Catholic Traditionalists live in a world of lies, and they hang on to these lies with all their strength.  These lies constitute the foundation on which they have built their spiritual lives.  That foundation, which has been cracked and falling apart for years, is finally giving out.  Like the horrible tragedy of the collapsed building in Surfside, Florida, the world of the Traditionalists is crumbling beneath their feet, and soon they will be surrounded only by a pile of rubble.

Roberto de Mattei, an outspoken critic who has unrelentingly condemned Pope Francis, has written an Op Ed for Rorate Caeli entitled, "Francis Has Unleashed a War: It Will End With the Full Triumph of Tradition." I choose this article because it contains some of the more blatant lies on which the Trads rely for their existence. It is so packed with lies and misrepresentations that I hardly know where to begin. So I will begin at the beginning.

Traditionalists: The Greatest Cafeteria Catholics of All Time

Traditionalists are always accusing the rest of the Catholic world of picking and choosing what they want to believe and throwing out the rest.  Certainly that is true for a certain number of Catholics.  Pope Francis himself has warned us of this trap, saying that such people have one foot out the door.  

But no "Novus Ordo" Catholic can hold a candle to the Traditionalists when it comes to picking and choosing what they will believe.  Traditionalists by nature reject everything that doesn't meet their own exacting standards, and that includes almost everything in the Church post-Vatican II.  

They reject the Second Vatican Council pretty much in its entirety, believing that even if there were good things from the Council, the good is far outweighed by the bad and therefore everything must be rejected. 

Traditionalists believe no one can be truly Catholic unless they love and attend the Traditional Latin Mass.  

They have rejected every post conciliar pope to one extent or another, and of course, they have completely rejected Pope Francis as a heretic who needs to be condemned and removed from the papacy.

Pope Francis Takes Back The Church From Traditionalists

Pope Francis released a Motu Proprio entitled TRADITIONIS CUSTODES ("Guardians of Tradition") (and accompanying letter) on July 16, 2021 which has, for all intents and purposes, nuked the Traditionalist movement within the Catholic Church. Pope Francis has identified a cancer in the Church and he is taking drastic measures to excise it.

Pope Francis has completely abrogated Summorum Pontificum released by Pope Benedict XVI in 2007, as can be seen in the above quote.  SP established two forms of the Mass:  Ordinary Form (the Mass promulgated by Pope St. Paul VI in 1970) and Extraordinary Form (given to the Church by Pope St. Pius X at the time of the Reformation and revised by Pope St. John XXIII in 1962).  Pope Francis has now decreed that there in only one form of the Mass.  The Traditional Latin Mass is no longer considered a form of the Roman Rite: 

Art. I. The liturgical books promulgated by Saint Paul VI and Saint John Paul II, in conformity with the decrees of Vatican Council II, are the unique expression of the lex orandi of the Roman Rite.

Msgr. Charles Pope: The Blind Leading the Blind

Msgr. Charles Pope, along with his fellow trads/conservatives, has railed against the COVID-19 restrictions, and has even condemned those who have not immediately returned to Mass of being "lukewarm Catholics."

Msgr. Pope now has the opportunity to put his money where his mouth has been because he has just tested positive for COVID-19.

Interestingly, although the secular news media has reported extensively on Msgr. Pope ("A pastor who told congregants not to be afraid of the coronavirus was hospitalized with COVID-19"), the only Catholic blogs I have seen report it are John Zuhlsdorf and Deacon Greg Kandra.  Per usual, if the news does not fit into the radical right's version of reality - which, more often than not, does not correspond to actual reality - they just pretend it doesn't exist.
