Those popes who bear the name, "Pius," are the greatest guardians of the Church against heresy. This blog is a watchdog for modernism in the Church. In reality, outside this blog, the members of the board temper their criticisms and opinions with prudence and charity so as to help souls in their journey towards Christ. But sometimes, for the sake of their own sanity, the authors of this blog just need to blow off some steam. The result is Totus Pius.

My Namesake



Okay, so perhaps a phone-in conclave open to all Catholics doesn't quite evoke images of the Rock on which Christ's Church is built. Nonetheless, while these folks are a bit off the wall, you have to feel for him just a little. It's like the villain with an understandable agenda, who goes about implementing it the wrong way, but with whom you still can't help but find some connection. A big fan of the preceding Piuses (Pii?) of legend, he's just your lovable, old school anti-Pope.

So, what can you expect from a blogging P-13? The unexpected.

I've never been entirely clear as to upon what he feels his claim to the papacy rests. Could you enlighten us, O antithetical avatar?

Papa Sanctus Pius X said...

His claim rests on the claim that he is the only real Catholic left...seriously...that's his claim...

A question...I just read about the conclave. The website states that the ballot was held by telephone. Yet, it is also asserted that the ballots were burned so that there would be white smoke. Can we send paper ballots through telephone now?

Joseph, M.T.S. said...

I guess they could have been faxed in; that's effectively sending a paper ballot via telephone...

I don't think we should question the little details of how I was elected Pope. It's a mystery of faith, and that's all we need to know.
