“I hear all around me innovators who wish to dismantle the Sacred Chapel, destroy the universal flame of the Church, reject her ornaments, and make her feel remorse for her historical past.” The future Pope Pius XII spoke these words in 1931 years before the nascent Vatican II Church began in earnest to reveal their modernist vision of la revolución.
Imagine a post-apocalyptic disfigured Risen Christ with a half-human, half-reptilian head emerging from a nuclear bomb crater seeping vapors of toxic smoke. Wait! There’s no need to imagine such an outrageous sacrilege and blasphemy. Here’s the photo.
The Vatican Audience Hall was inaugurated in 1971. The sinister bronze sculpture titled La Resurrezione was added in 1977.
Novus Ordo Watch, a lay-led internet apostolate, observed, “…comments randomly found around the internet use terms like “bizarre”, “frightening”, “ugly”, “ghoulish”, a “monstrosity”, “evilly horrific”, “demonic”, “gruesome”, “terrifying”, “depressing”, “strikingly weird”, “dark”, “oddly nightmarish”, and “Satanic looking”.
“So, suffice it to say, no one’s going to confuse it with the spiritually uplifting works of great Catholic artists from the past. But why must it be so diametrically opposite to the spirit of true sacred art? The compulsion to debase that which is holy, inherent in theological Modernism, necessarily carries over to its counterparts in other fields — it cannot do otherwise.”
Forsaking appeal to “conspiracy theories,’ the ill-omened forces behind la revolución in ‘other fields’ are on display quite clearly today in many American cities, e.g. Portland, Seattle, New York, Chicago and, somewhat surprisingly, Louisville, Kentucky. All these and other revolutionary hot spots are unsurprisingly governed by Marxist revolutionaries masquerading as patriots. Christianity and Democracy are under attack in our world.
As a fan of sedevacantist what ifs, the Nova Ordo Watch article (the full piece is linked below) went on to add:
“And to throw in a distinctly sedevacantist what if?, there’s a certain conspiracy theory centered around the year 1958. This is just meant as a bit of fun speculation, but according to the so-called Siri Thesis, in that year Genoa’s Cardinal Giuseppe Siri was elected pope but was pressured to resign before he could appear on the balcony of St. Peter’s.
“According to one version, he was forced out by being told that if he didn’t, a nuclear strike would be launched on Rome, wiping out the Vatican and the entire college of cardinals, which was gathered there in conclave. As a result of his resignation, the suspected Rosicrucian Freemason Angelo Roncalli became Antipope John XXIII — and the rest, as they say, is history.”
John XXIII was to have been a simple caretaker pope. An elderly (76) Pontifical placeholder when elected pope in 1958, he wasn’t expected to make waves, only to afford the Cardinal electors a little breathing room and some time to regroup. At least, that was the public narrative. The reality, as detailed in the Novus Ordo piece, was quite different. Shockingly, this new pope convened a Second Vatican Council, which bequeathed to us the modern church – a church in misery embroiled in a host of heresy and corruption.

The Vatican’s Hell Hall: The Weird Mysteries of the Paul VI Audience Hall – Novus Ordo Watch, July 2020
“As a web site, Novus Ordo Watch has been in operation since the fall of 2002. Our primary target audience is good-willed souls in the Novus Ordo Church who are realizing that something is woefully wrong and amiss about their religion but lack sufficient information to see the whole picture.”
