In this “very live” podcast we discussed some of the basic traditional principles of charity, piety, judgment and scandal with regard to the latest “Assisi-Pachamama” type controversy from His Holiness. Here I raise the example of the layman Emperor Otto in his dealings with the evil Pope John XII and his “trafficking with the devil.” Later on in the podcast we discuss some very important traditional doctrines that have been lost even before Vatican II, especially the doctrine of the Two Swords. Finally, I share my hypothesis about some of the papal defenders and what is causing them to continue their defense of what seems to Trads (and many other non-Trads!) to be indefensible.
Timothy S. Flanders earned a BA in Greek and Latin from Grand Valley State University in 2010 with special studies in history, writing and Arabic. As a result of his studies, he converted from Protestantism to Eastern Orthodoxy and began working in education among ages Kindergarten to adult.

In 2021, he became the editor-in-chief of the online journal, OnePeterFive. He is the author of three books: Introduction to the Holy Bible for Traditional Catholics, City of God versus City of Man: The Battles of the Church from Antiquity to the Present and When the Gates of Hell Prevail: What Catholics Do in Dark Times, as well as a forthcoming book about Eastern Orthodoxy, published by St. Paul Center.
