If you wondered why Benedict-Ratzinger went to the United States on a six-day junket April 21-26, 2008, and held a carefully-staged victims session, now you know. Enough Newchurchers are finally voting with their pocketbooks against him to throw the megalith of his U.S. Newchurch into a tailspin.
Timothy McDonnell, of Springfield, Massachusetts, is just the latest Newchurch bishop to admit that Newchurchers are so fed up with the bishop-presbyter sex crimes and sell-offs of traditional churches that they are withholding donations to the New Order in significant numbers. Mcdonnell said that his goal "is to ensure fair and equitable equal access to the Eucharist for all." Now, what does that mean? Phony Novus Ordo "Eucharist" for Mohammedans? Phony "Seder-Eucharist" for Jews? God only knows. [Source: Berkshire Eagle]
What we know is that significant amounts of money collected through these Newchurch Bishop's Appeals are spent not on charity or even church maintenance, but on Novus Ordo programs to train lectoresses, lay deacons, and, yes, dancing girls. No one should contribute a dime to the phony Novus Ordo "Eucharist" and these Newchurch Salome institutes!
One of the leading radical Modernists in Newchurch, Richard O'Brien, has praised Benedict-Ratzinger as a convert to Modernism in his first three years of papacy. O'Brien pointed to Newpope's "moderate, non-censorious tone" and welcomes him to the Modernist fold. O'Brien characterized the conversion in this way:
By late 2005, there were already grumblings about the "other' [Modernist] Pope Benedict within his "base" on the Catholic [sic] right. In September , Benedict XVI had hosted a friendly meeting with the bęte noire of conservative Catholics, the Swiss theologian Hans Kung. When it came time to issue a statement to the media, the pope would not do so until Kung had read and approved it. By contrast, John Paul II had for 25 years refused to grant an audience to Küng, much less invite him to dinner and a four-hour conversation.
Good Catholics, there you have it. The "secret" is out. Benedict-Ratzinger is openly acknowledged by radical Modernists as one of their own! He openly panders to radical Modernist leaders like Kung. "Traditional" pope? Don't bet your spiritual life on it!
Yes, yes, Newchurch has a "rule" against presbyters, much less bishops, running for civil office, but that "rule" has been observed more in the breach than in the observance. Remember the "gay" presbyter who ran for and won a seat in the Canadian parliament on a platform of abortion and "gay" marriage? Benedict-Ratzinger didn't say a word about that either.
So now we have Fernando Lugo Mendez, who became the Newchurch bishop of San Pedro, Paraguay, in 1994, elected on April 27, 2008, as President of Paraguay on a Socialist-Communist platform, with Liberation Theology thrown into the mix. Lugo presented his Leftist platform in August 2007 with these words: "We are attempting to build the Socialism of the 21st Century." Sounds like Karl Marx!
The Leftist is still recognized as a Newchurch bishop by Benedict-Ratzinger, although he had been suspended a divinis, which means that he wasn't supposed to simulate the Novus Ordo service any longer. He paid no attention to Newvatican and went ahead to run anyway. Benedict-Ratzinger has not announced any further penalties. [Source: AFP]
Contrary to the wishes of the family of Padre Pio, who tried to take the New Order Church to court to stop the desecration, Benedict-Ratzinger's Newvatican on April 24, 2008, forcibly removed the cadaver of the anti-Modernist priest from his traditional church at San Giovanni Rotondo to a new Novus Ordo temple.
Newcardinal Jose Saraiva Martins, head of Newvatican's conciliar saint-making factory, simulated an open-air Mess before the exposure of the padre's exhumed cadaver in the new Novus Ordo temple in San Giovanni Rotondo, where the padre had lived and worked. The cadaver was exposed in a casket enclosed in crystal, wearing a monk's hooded dark robe, the face covered with a silicon hand-painted, bearded mask. All the goings-on were displayed on giant television screens outside.
What we know for certain is that Padre Pio would have hated everything that Newvatican has done to him. If he could, he would rise up from his casket and condemn Newpope, as Paul upbraided Peter. Pio hated the coming Novus Ordo -- and said so publicly. Fortunately, God took him in 1968 before it was officially rolled out in 1969.

Newcardinal Roger "Rogue" Mahony, faced with closing down Newchurch operations in the Los Angeles archdiocese to pay damages of some $1,000,000,000 to victims of the Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal is now attempting to raid the endowments of the Newparishes. The technique is not unknown in Newchurch. Raymond Burke, the Newchurch archbishop of St. Louis, Missouri, tried to do the same thing: to steal St. Stanislaus Kostka Church, worth over $10,000,000, even though that church had a perpetual charter from the first archbishop of St. Louis. The church turned the tables on the thieving Burke went independent. In two years its membership has trebled.
Mahony promised not to steal parish or school properties, but that promise was long ago broken. Many older, more affluent parishes, have endowments from parishioners, carefully built up over many years to maintain church property and activities. In February 2008 Mahony wrote to the pastors of 101 parishes, twisting their arms to turn over their endowments to pay for the sex crimes of himself and his presbyteral minions. If the pastors do not turn over the funds voluntarily, Mahony has implied that he will take the funds by force.
One wonders why, if Benedict-Ratzinger claims to be head of Newchurch, he allows this Rogue to continue in office. He has run the archdiocese into the ground since his accession in 1985. Are bishops no longer accountable for their high crimes and misdemeanors? Does Mahony have something on Ratzinger? One wonders.
Newchurchers in the Sao Paolo region of Brazil may have thought that Novus Ordo presbyter Adelir Antonio de Carli, aged 41, was swept into heaven in the Protestant "rapture" when he floated off under hundreds of helium party balloons after his April 20, 2008, Sunday "Balloon" Mess at San Christovao Newparish. Carli has gone missing off the southern coast of Brazil and is now presumed dead, as fisherman found pieces of the balloons washed ashore. (For further information, click on FAQ10: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Beliefs? in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics) in the section, "Rapture.")
The "balloon" presbyter ascended to a height of 6,000 metres, then descended to about 2,500 metres for his planned flight to the city of Dourados, 750 kilometres northwest of his Novus Ordo parish. His flight, however, turned into his swan-song (do swans fly?) when winds pushed him in another direction, some 50 kilometres off the coast into the Atlantic Ocean. [Source: Associated Press]
We cannot help but be reminded of the cases where infants have been drowned when presbyters have incompetently tried to baptized them by the Novus Ordo/Protestant "in" thing: baptism by immersion.
Except for TRADITIO Network reports, you have been hearing little about how Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal has been spreading to the Eastern, which have already been corrupted liturgically by the Novus Ordo. (For further information, click on FAQ10: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Beliefs? in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics) in the section, "Eastern Rite 'Option'.")
Now another case has come to light of an Eastern rite's collusion in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal. The New York Post has revealed that a Newchurch presbyter, Albert McGoldrick, who was defrocked amid allegations he assaulted a child was hired by the Ukrainian Catholic [sic] Eparchy, where he socialized young Novus Ordo seminarians. The Eastern eparchy, even though it knew of the presbyter's history directly from the Newchurch diocese of Bridgeport, Connecticut, gave him a job as an assistant to the bishop of the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy, a diocese headquartered in Stamford, Connecticut, but which also has churches in New York.
"There's no reason why this guy should be back working with boys," said a private investigator for the Eastern-rite laity. "People are furious.... These are boys, 17, 18, 19, 20 years old from the Ukraine -- naive boys who are looking to get into the priesthood [Novus Ordo presbyterate]." McGoldrick was hired by the Ukrainian Catholic Eparchy of Stamford, which swears allegiance to Benedict-Ratzinger, who washed his hands of responsibility for his clergy and refused to tighten ecclesiastical law to get rid of his criminal clergy.
Good Catholics, we again see the hand of Benedict-Ratzinger in this. When confront with corruption in his Novus Ordo seminaries, he refused to do anything but issue a mild slap on the hand. Obviously, the corruption is spreading while he stands by aiding and abetting it.
U.S. Presidential candidate Tom Tancredo (R-Colorado) told the U.S. House of Representatives on April 21, 2008:
I suspect the pope's immigration comments may have less to do with spreading the Gospel than they do about recruiting new members of the Church. This isn't preaching, it is 'faith-based' marketing.
Tancredo, a candidate for the Republican Presidential nomination, suggested in his House speech that Benedict-Ratzinger is encouraging Latin Americans to emigrate to the United States, even illegally, to bolster flagging membership in the New Order Church.
There is no question that without waves of Latin Americans, whom Newchurch counts as "Catholics" to bolster its flagging membership, the inflated numbers for Newchurchers in the United States could well be cut in half.
And you believed Benedict-Ratzinger when he gave out on his U.S. junket that the Newchurch Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal was now under control? Haven't you learned to reject his Modernist propaganda yet?
Just as he was flying back to Newrome, Benedict-Ratzinger -- and the United States capital -- was hit with the news that a former Benedictine presbyter has accused Washington, D.C.'s Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick of documented sex crimes. You might remember McCarrick for his public prayers to the Mohammedan god.
Catholic World News has revealed that Richard Sipe, in an open letter to Benedict-Ratzinger, has provided documented evidence that several Newchurch prelates have preyed on children and Novus Ordo seminarians. He charged McCarrick personally with sodomy. Sipe turned over to Benedict-Ratzinger "documents and letters that record first-hand testimony and eyewitness accounts."
Sipe also similarly charged Newchurch's Chicago archbishop Joseph Bernardin, now deceased, although Chicago's current Newchurch cardinal, Francis George, has been exposed as having knowingly placed a known presbyter-pervert as principal of a school. Nonetheless, George was recently elected as President of the U.S. Conference of Catholic [sic] Bishops -- perhaps a fitting choice to lead what the USCCB's own investigators called "a Mafia organization."
Sipe's open letter to Benedict-Ratzinger charged that although other presbyters were aware of McCarrick's sex crimes, "legal documentation has not been available." Until now. And even at this point the complete story cannot be published, he said, because presbyters are afraid of reprisals" from Donald Wuerl, the current Newchurch archbishop of Washington, D.C., and from Benedict-Ratzinger himself.
Moreover, Sipe has publicly accused Benedict-Ratzinger of himself being responsible for these crimes. The Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal in Newchurch, he wrote, "is not generated from the bottom up, that is, only from unsuitable candidates, but from the top down, that is, from the sexual behaviors of superiors, even bishops and cardinals." And sitting right at the top is, of course, Benedict-Ratzinger himself.
Good Catholics, don't expect Benedict-Ratzinger to do anything against his corrupt prelates, many of whom he has himself appointed knowing of their corruption. Benedict-Ratzinger himself aids and abets the corruption by cover-ups at the papal level and by secreting ilk like William Levada, former Newchurch archbishop of San Francisco, and Bernard Law, former Newchurch archbishop of Boston in his bosom.
Already in 2005, traditional author Patricius Anthony had called McCarrick out in an exclusive feature that he wrote for the TRADITIO Network.

Although I am a traditional Catholic, I often meet with members of the New Order sect in connection with my involvement in the Pro-life Movement. Over the years I have seen that unquestioned support of whoever happens to be pope is not only more and more common: it has become a measure of one's "Catholic" faith. When I was growing up, people didn't hesitate to express their displeasure when the pope did something or said something that they didn't agree with. Today, I would rather declare myself a die-hard jihadist than suffer the opprobrium of saying anything negative about the pope. Could you trace the evolution of this unwholesome attitude?
The Fathers Reply.
Whom are you going to worship when you reject Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Public Revelation in Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition? A man, of course. Newchurch is essentially Arian, a heresy that was widespread in the Church in the fourth century, which denied the divinity of Christ. St. Jerome wrote that three of every four bishop were heretics at that time, and St. Augustine took a public oath against the pope, who was acting like a heretic himself. Nihil sub sole novum.
You are correct in saying that in the past when popes strayed from the true Faith, Catholics would chastise them publicly. We read of this type of Catholic action against errant popes even in Sacred Scripture, when Paul castigated Peter for Judaizing. This sad episode in the history of the papacy, starting with the first pope, is documented in chapter 2 of St. Paul's Epistle to the Galatians.

And we thought that Christ's message was to save our souls, not the planet! But Newchurch's archbishop of Manila, Newcardinal Gaudencio Rosales, on April 22, 2008, told Newchurchers to save the planet, lest there be what he called an "ecological Armageddon." Rosales, who is known more as a liberalist "environmentalist" rather than as a Catholic, used religious terms of pseudo-science during an "Earth Day" Mess at the Manila Cathedral.
Good Catholics, it was bad enough when Newchurch prelates gave up preaching Catholicism and took up preaching politics. Now they claim to preach science?! How about Rosales actually converting to Catholicism and preaching, as St. Paul said, "Christ: and Him crucified" (1 Corinthians 2:2/DRV)?
On April 14, 2008, the SSPX's Superior General, Bernie Fellay, announced through the Society's press agency that after over two years' reflection, he now agrees with the TRADITIO Fathers and will not sign a letter of capitulation to Benedict-Ratzinger and his New Order. Since Benedict-Ratzinger's August 29, 2005, "Beheading" Meeting with Fellay, the TRADITIO Network has been almost the only consistent voice that has pointed to the duplicity and hoax of Benedict-Ratzinger's effort to get Fellay to sell out to the New Order.
For over two years now, Fellay has resisted our prudent advice to stay entirely way from the Newchurch of the New Order and has even tried to intimidate the TRADITIO Network by attacking TRADITIO's independent traditional Catholic voice and getting his henchmen to attack us as well -- just as he attacks even his own clergy and membership who disagree with him. Nevertheless, we remained firm in the traditional Catholic Faith and didn't let schoolyard bullies intimidate us. Fellay has now told the world that the TRADITIO Network was right all along and that he was the one deceived by Newrome.
Now Fellay himself has become the target of attacks. In his coverage of the announcement, Reuters' religion editor termed Fellay and his members "rebels." It also took note of the fact that Benedict-Ratzinger on his US junket spurned any appearance of traditional Catholicism: "The Masses [sic] were in post-Council style, in English with him facing the congregation, and most music was modern as well."
Now Fellay has apparently changed his pro-sellout tune and admitted that "all changes introduced at the Council and in the post-Conciliar reforms, which we denounce because the Church has already condemned them, are confirmed" in Benedict-Ratzinger's New Order. Fellay went on to state: "It is necessary to conclude that nothing has changed in the will of [New]rome to follow the Conciliar orientations, despite forty years of crisis, despite the deserted convents, the abandoned rectories, the empty churches."
Fellay then declared that the Society of St. Pius X "cannot sign an agreement" with Benedict-Ratzinger and his New Order. "We observe that the time for an agreement has not yet come.... It would be very imprudent and hasty to thrust ourselves unwisely in pursuit of a practical agreement which would not be founded upon the fundamental principles of the Church, particularly on the Faith."
Good Catholics, although we TRADITIO Fathers are happy to see that Fellay has finally seen the wisdom of our rejection of any sellout to Benedict-Ratzinger and his New Order, we lament the fact that Fellay took over two years to come finally to this conclusion that was obvious to us from the beginning. This delay has been the cause of great dissent within the Society and of numerous members leaving the SSPX during these two years. But we warn you that Fellay has a history of wavering on the question of a sellout to Newrome, so we take his current statement very much cum grano salis for the time being. Moreover, Fellay needs to address other issues with his administration of the Society, to renounce his autocratic and dictatorial behavior toward SSPX clergy and laity, which has earned him the moniker within the Society of "Little Hitler."
Benedict-Ratzinger's spokesman, Presbytter Federico Lombardi, announced on April 19, 2008, that Benedict-Ratzinger will not change the current permissive New Order law that allows Newchurch clergy to escape punishment for sex crimes. Benedict-Ratzinger's spokesman specifically said that Newpope rejected a statement by his "Doctrinal Czar" William Levada that Benedict-Ratzinger was contemplating revisions to enforce stiffer penalties against Newchurch clergy who rape and assault children. "Further changes are not expected," Newpope's spokesman stated. Levada later claimed that the press "misinterpreted" him. [Source: Catholic News Service]
Good Catholics, this announcement simply confirms the TRADITIO Fathers' consistent contention that Benedict-Ratzinger is all talk and no action. The fact that Newchurchers cheered his recent U.S. propaganda junket without booing him off the Novus Ordo dinner table because of the corruption of his administration merely proves how bedeviled the Newchurchers have become.
An eyewitness has reported that at Benedict-Ratzinger's April 17, 2008, "Baseball" Mess in Washington, D.C.'s Nationals Baseball Stadium, a presbyter made a special trip to give the Novus Ordo cookie communion to outspokenly pro-abortion and pro-"gay" Senator Ted Kennedy minutes before everyone else began to receive the hand-out.
Although the press missed the hand-out, as it was not alerted in advance, Daniel Skehan, an eyewitness, who was near Kennedy at the function, has reported: "Two of my sons and I attended the Papal Mass yesterday. We were seated in section 216, directly above the section in which Ted Kennedy was seated. Several minutes prior to the general distribution of communion a priest walked down to Ted Kennedy and gave him communion. There was some discussion amongst us in our section about the inappropriateness of his reception of the host. Be certain, he remained seated not out of some self-enforced respect for the sacrament, but rather out of respect for his girth and mobility."
Organizers of Benedict-Ratzinger's New Order event did not seem to be at all mindful of the public scandal of this occurrence, given that they made a special effort to ensure that the senator was given the cookie despite his very well known rejection of Catholic moral teaching on the issues of abortion, homosexuality, and other serious moral issues.
If Benedict-Ratzinger had been crowned as pope (he wasn't, but merely "installed" in the New Order rite), three times a reed surmounted with flax would have been held up to him and ignited, only to disappear in a wisp of smoke as he would be reminded: Sancte Pater, sic transit gloria mundi. Well, the glory of the world certainly disappeared quickly for Benedict-Ratzinger. At his last "Baseball" Mess, simulated on Sunday, April 20, 2008, in New York's Yankee Baseball Stadium, seats went empty as Newchurchers tired of their latest "rock star."
Before Benedict-Ratzinger's Novus Ordo dinner table for the Mess, a congeries of crazies "performed." This flock of rarae aves, including a Full Gospel Protestant Group doing hip-hop to Amazing Grace, a troupe of dancing girls performing God-knows-what, and a series of pop and rock stars doing their profane thing.

Good Catholics, it was clear how deeply the blasphemy of papolatry, the worship of the pope as God, has taken over Newchurch. Sacred Scripture is out; Sacred Tradition is out. Pope-worship is in. This fact was expressed most graphically in the fact that the papal cathedra at all the Messes was humongous and elevated, while the altar of God, the Novus Ordo dinner table, was belittled below. Benedict-Ratzinger did not take the traditional position to the side of and below the altar, but plopped himself like a Buddha in the center and above. His actions were as clear as if he had said: "Forget Christ; I'm your God now." Newchurch is now smack in the middle of a neo-Arian heresy, which engulfed the clergy of the early Church in the heresy that Christ was not God.
Thank goodness that JPII the Ungreat is gone. The British Broadcasting Corporation will be airing an expose on Presbyter Michael Cleary, JPII's agent for the papal visit to Ireland, who was a fornicator and fathered two illegitimate children. The revelation shocked Ireland and created a national scandal. Cleary posed as a "devout" Newchurcher on issues such as sex, divorce and abortion. He also published a book about maintaining faith in the modern world. Now, after his death, the BBC revealed that the well-know presbyter was fornicating with his housekeeper, Phyllis Hamilton, and fathered two illegitimate children.
On April 19, 2008, Benedict-Ratzinger moved from Mess in Washington, D.C., at the Nationals Baseball Stadium to New York at St. Patrick's Newchurch Cathedral. It was remarkable how much the use of a supposedly sacred place muted the flamboyance of the Mess. It is a lesson that should be learned: Mess should never be simulated in a vulgar place like a baseball stadium or a horse-racing track.
But the Novus Ordo is, in its essence, vulgar. That was the intention of its author, the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini with his Committee of Six Protestants: to use vulgar tongues instead of sacred Latin; to use pop, rock, and jazz music instead of the Sacred Chant; to use profane hoopla instead of sacred rites.
St. Patrick's: once a great traditional cathedral, but now gutted to accommodate a Novus Ordo dinner table. Its landlord is now Newcardinal Richard Egan, known as the King of Closures, for his shutting down traditional churches right and left in New York. At what is supposed to be a Mass -- really a Mess -- Egan gave an opening speech that sounded more like his campaign statement for the next papal election. At the end of his stump-speech, contrary to the decree of Pope St. Pius X (as if any true Catholic needed a decree) banning applause in churches, the congregation, consisting entirely of clergy and religious, clapped and hooted as if they were still in Nationals Baseball Stadium.
Benedict-Ratzinger, instead of stilling the inappropriate clapping and hooting, stood up like a theatre performer for a solo bow. Not once, but twice! (Apparently, the congregation thought him, unlike a great tenor, not to merit a third.) Pope St. Pius X, in accordance with Biblical prescriptions (Zacharias 2:13, Habacuc 2:20) when he entered St. Peter's Basilica on the sedia gestatoria and heard applause, remarked: "The servant does not deserve to be applauded in the house of his Master." Now there's a true Catholic pope for you! It's too bad that the New Yorkers couldn't arrange a swan song and final curtain call for this man, who has so besmirched the office of pope.
In his stump-speech, Egan pointed with pride to the fact that the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Mess was simulated in 35 languages in the Newchurch archdiocese of New York. What a nightmare of the deranged Vatican II! And what an argument for banning the vulgar tongues entirely and using Latin exclusively (okay, we'll give you Biblical Greek for the Easterners).
Benedict-Ratzinger opened the Mess with the Novus Ordo's "Let us call to mind our sins." He couldn't have paused more than two seconds before going on. Hardly enough time for him to recall the tens of thousands of children assaulted and raped by his agents under his administration. Hardly enough time for him to recall all the heresies and sacrileges committed by his Newchurch of the New Order.
It was hard at times to determine whether the Mess was taking place in Mexico or the United States, as there was so much Spanish mixed with the English (Spanglish?), with a bit of Chinese thrown in for good measure. To be sure, this Mess was dressed up with more Latin, and even some Gregorian chant and polyphony, but the Novus Ordo nature of the shindig could not be hidden:
The papal sermon contained a short passage about "disunity" in the Church since Vatican II:
For all of us, I think, one of the great disappointments which followed the Second Vatican Council, with its call for a greater engagement in the Church's mission to the world, has been the experience of division between different groups, different generations, different members of the same religious family.
But Benedict-Ratzinger failed to place the blame for the disunity where it obviously lies, with Vatican II and its follow-up. Moreover, he praised not unity, but "diversity." Nor did he decree a return to the previous unity of the Church in the Traditional Latin Mass. So much for Newchurch being unam, sanctam, catholicam et apostolicam ecclesiam! The motto of this papacy really out to be: Omnia loquere, nihil facere, loosely translated, "All Talk, No Action." As one traditional Roman Catholic bishop put it:
From the [Newchurch] hierarchy we do not get a repudiation of the [Vatican II] reforms. We do not get an admission that Vatican II was a great "mistake" and that the post-Vatican II changes have devastated the Church and ruined countless millions of souls. Instead, we get a reaffirmation of the legitimacy of the Council. We get the demand that we must accept the reforms. And even when they dole out a few "concessions" here and there like the indult ["Motu"] Mass, they do it under the condition that those who attend it accept the legitimacy of the New Mass. This isnot repentenace. This is pertinacity.
All in all, this was nothing more than a High Protestant service, wrapped up in a little more of what the highbrow Episcopalians call "bells and whistles," but the entrails were just as Novus Ordo -- and just as invalid. Poison is poison, even if it comes with a chocolate coating.
Has there ever been a pope who remained pope, even though he was too ill to function, and, if so, who functioned in his place?
The Fathers Reply.
There have undoubtedly been many cases of that nature, but they is kept secret, and those around the pope presume to administer the Church illegally in the incapacitated pope's name.
There was a very recent case of this kind of deception upon the death of JPII. He was unconscious for several days at the end, according to his physician's published medical report. Yet the Newvatican deceivers reported that he simulated Mess -- during the time that he was unconscious. When the medical report came out after his death, the Newvatican deceivers, with red faces, were forced to admit their lie.
There is also evidence that JPII died not on April 2, 2005, as is commonly reported, but actually on April 1, 2005, when his death was initially announced by the press. Apparently, however, his cronies hadn't finished their work, so they illegally used the (probably) dead pope's ring to seal dozens of appointments of their friends as Newchurch bishops. According to the Constitution for the death of the pope, the camerarius, as soon as he confirms the pope's death, is supposed to destroy the seal ring in front of cardinal as witnesses against just such fraud.
In 2005 JPII's ring was not destroyed according to the Constitution. In fact, if you read the reports of the time, you will find that the ring actually disappeared for several days after JPII's death. All kinds of fraudulent documents were fabricated during that time.
Traditional churches in France are being dynamited because fewer than 5 per cent of the nation, once called the "First Daughter of the Church," attend the Novus Ordo service. Vatican II has done Catholic France in. The French Culture Ministry estimates that 41 per cent of France's traditional churches will be destroyed. In Great Britain, traditional churches have already been turned into apartments, cafes, warehouses -- even a circus school. In Rome, Benedict-Ratzinger's administration has converted traditional churches into art galleries and restaurants. Some traditional churches are being converted into mosques.

On the afternoon of April 17, 2008, Benedict-Ratzinger was off to the Catholic [sic] University of America, where he was to deliver what turned out to be an absolutely incomprehensible speech on education, filled with the gobbledygook of Ratzingerian-Kungian academic-speak. As the camera panned the cardinals and bishops in attendance, several of them were caught dozing off. Most were simply bored.
But before that, Benedict-Ratzinger was hustled off to a quickie "secret" meeting with some hand-picked victims of his bishops' and presbyters' sex crimes, the crimes that he himself has been aiding and abetting since April 30, 2001, when he was appointed by JPII as Sex Crimes Czar and given complete responsibility for a clean-up. He has done essentially nothing. The Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal continues unabated, with a 54 per cent increase in such crimes in 2007 over 2006, according to the statistics of the U.S. Conference of Catholic [sic] Bishops.
Here we go again. More "secrets." Isn't this what got JPII and Benedict-Ratzinger and their henchmen bishops into deep trouble in the first place? According to inside reports of the meeting, he issued yet another "apology." All talk; no action. No talk about stripping the criminal presbyters and bishops of any connection with Newchurch. No talk about turning the criminals over to the authorities for prosecution. No, Benedict-Ratzinger and his Newchurch of the New Order have learned nothing except how to do better propaganda. How to play the fox, how to spin crimes into virtues, how to do a snow-jobs on the ignorant Newchurchers and religion-dumb secular press.
Benedict-Ratzinger had turned down Boston Newcardinal Sean O'Malley's invitation to come to Boston, where his predecessor, Bernard Law, set off the Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal, and where hundreds of victims have gone public. Thus, Newpope had to do something, so as not to make it look as if he were snubbing the invitation. Thus, the quickie 25-minute meeting with hand-picked "victims." Meanwhile, for year the disgraced Law has been housed by Benedict-Ratzinger in Rome in a palace, with a generous stipend, and a cushy sinecure.
But the meeting didn't go as planned. The victims had accused Benedict-Ratzinger himself of protecting some 19 of his U.S. Newchurch bishops "credibly accused" of the assault and rape of children. It was revealed that of the 19 bishops, none has lost his title, been publicly censured by Benedict-Ratzinger, or referred for criminal prosecutions. "The sexual corruption in the Catholic church starts at the very top," they said. Benedict-Ratzinger refused to reveal how many of his bishops themselves have been personally involved in sex crimes, but according to the Bishop Accountability list, almost one in ten U.s. bishops have themselves been publicly charged of assaulting and raping minors:
Good Catholics, Benedict-Ratzinger has taken no action against these criminal bishops of his. Nor has he addressed the embezzlement part of the scandal, with Newchurch bishops and presbyters charged and convicted of stealing multi-millions of dollars from their churches and parishes. The Roman satirist Juvenal made the ultimate comment on this situation, as he did on the corruption of ancient Rome, when he wrote his famous words: Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?
At this point Newchurchers in New York and Washington, D.C., must be wondering now why they are spending multi-millions of dollars on a papal junket that pure pompous propaganda posturing. Benedict-Ratzinger should have stayed home in Newrome sweeping the Augean stables of his Newchurch clean of clergy criminals. Then he might have earned his salary!
The Boston Newchurch Archdiocese has told attendees at the "Motu" Mess in Newton that Vatican II and post Vatican II decrees of the New Order on music will be gradually implemented there. The Gregorian schola will be suppressed as a separate entity and merged with the Novus Ordo parish choir under a director with no experience directing or singing chant. The announced goal is to mix together the voices now separated by sex, even though mixed-sex choirs are prohibited at the Traditional Latin Mass.
Indications were also given that there will be a move from the "1962 Missal" to the "1965 Missal," which is the first missal to implement Novus Ordo changes. The "Motu" attendees were told that if they couldn't accept these Novus-Ordoizing changes, they should leave the parish.Good Catholics, didn't we tell you that the "Motu" Mess was a hoax to draw neo-con Newchurchers into the Novus Ordo? And now we have proof of this prediction.
Benedict-Ratzinger is lucky that he's not in secular politics. No one would allow him to get away with the hypocrisy that has become a way of life with him. The man plays Newchurchers, particularly its "neo-con" conservatives, like the out-of-tune pianos and trumpets at his "Baseball" Mess to inaugurate the Washington Nationals Baseball Stadium on the morning of April 17, 2008. If anything, this cheap display showed just how far the reality of Benedict-Ratzinger is from his New Order propaganda "documents." (And you thought that "Clown" Messes died with JPII!)
Benedict-Ratzinger's "liturgy" was the epitome of the invalid Novus Ordo Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service. As is his custom, he used the most invalid of all the Bugnini Eucharistic prayers, Number 2, the so-called "Presto" prayer because it is the quickest, based closely upon the fabrication of the early heretic, Hippolytus. Naturally, the Protestant "Bidding Prayers" and the Jewish Offertory, which are required parts of the Novus Ordo, were included.
Benedict-Ratzinger's Words: He purports to want for "reverence" and "sacredness" in the Novus Ordo Mess.
Benedict-Ratzinger's Actions: He uses the invalid Novus Ordo in its most Modernistic form, in the vulgar tongue exclusively.
Benedict-Ratzinger's Words: He purports to want Gregorian chant or Mozartian polyphony.
Benedict-Ratzinger's Actions: He imports music from jazz clubs, Amazonian jungles, Mexican fiestas, and Protestant Full Gospel sects.
Benedict-Ratzinger's Words: He purports to want to change the Protestant "for all" formula to "for many."
Benedict-Ratzinger's Actions: He himself uses "for all."
Benedict-Ratzinger's Words: He purports to want to give the Novus Ordo cookie on the tongue instead of into filthy hands.
Benedict-Ratzinger's Actions: He himself handed out most of the cookies into filthy hands.
Other highlights of Benedict-Ratzinger's "Hypocrite's" Mess:
One curious aspect of the American broadcast of the "Baseball" Mess is that the commentators on the EWTN Charismatic Novus Ordo cable network were embarrassed about all of it. They tried a cop-out, saying that the "liturgy" did not represent Benedict-Ratzinger's beliefs. But, remember, good Catholics, that Benedict-Ratzinger's new Liturgy Chief, Msgr. Guido Marini, publicly announced that he had approved every minute of this "Hypocrite's" Mess!
Benedict-Ratzinger seems to be learning a lot from the Jewish leaders with whom he has been associating. No one can say that he doesn't have chutzpah! This man claims to be "Supreme Pontiff," but rejects any responsibility for the assault and rape of tens of thousands of Newchurch children across the world. He does so in spite of the fact that JPII gave him complete responsibility for Sex Crimes in Newchurch in his April 30, 2001 Motu Proprio Sacramentorum sanctitatis tutela. Card. Ratzinger then wasted no time in binding every bishop in Newchurch to the Grand Cover-up in his May 18, 2001 Letter De delictis gravioribus. The bishops were warned that they could not reveal any details of sex crimes to the police. As pope since 2005, this "Supreme Pontiff" has done nothing to root criminal bishops and presbyters out of Newchurch. Instead, he has continued his Grand Cover-up year after year.
Now Benedict-Ratzinger has had the temerity to proclaim himself, as head of the New Order Church, totally free of any responsibility and in an April 16, 2008 address at the Shrine of the Immaculate Conception in Washington, D.C., to the U.S. Newchurch bishops has blamed the bishops and "the breakdown of values in U.S. society." He was, of course, mute about the breakdown of values in Newrome! The hypocritical Benedict-Ratzinger, while engaging in a desperate effort to take the blame off himself, where it belongs according to Catholic moral theology, again failed to specify any firm action that he intended to take to purge his Newchurch of his child-raping bishops and priests.
Although Benedict-Ratzinger spouted the usual Newchurch propaganda praising the U.S. Newchurch bishops' new regulations against sex crimes (as if presbyters should have to be told that raping children is a punishable sin), he failed to mention that the new regulations are clearly not working. In 2007, 689 new charges of presbyter assault against children were lodged, and Newchurch had to paid out penalties of $615,000,000 to victims in that year alone, 54% more than in 2006.
Spokesmen for victims groups are finally starting to put the blame for these crimes: right in the lap of Benedict-Ratzinger. They have called for firm action from Newpope against all presbyter-criminals, a call that Benedict-Ratzinger has spurned, as over two dozen of his bishops in the United States alone have been personally charged with sex crimes. [Source: AFP]
Good Catholics, this wretched excuse for a pope is compiling a record of corruption that makes Alexander VI look like a saint! Under the authority of Benedict-Ratzinger and JPII the Ungreat, tens of thousands of children have been assaulted, raped, and used as victims in Satanic rituals, as documented by police across the United States. When are Newchurchers and the neo-con talking heads going to acknowledge the truth and place the blame where it belongs: at the feet of that deceitful fox, Benedict-Ratzinger?
Charlie Pigott, of Brooklyn, New York, was quoted on the front page of the April 16, 2008 Wall Street Journal, speaking about his attempt to purchase "scalped" tickets for one of the outdoor Messes that Benedict-Ratzinger will be simulating while here in the United States. Pigott said, "I don't care what it costs.... To a real Catholic, it's the closest thing to God you're going to get."
Isn't that a disgusting display of New Order idolatry! As real Catholics all know, the closest thing to God on earth is actually God on earth: in the Flesh, reposing in the tabernacle of any traditional Catholic church or chapel. Real Catholics can gain an audience with the Almighty for free, rather than pay $200 for a peek at Benedict-Ratzinger's Prada shoes.
Benedict-Ratzinger is against abortion, you say? Think again. At his "Baseball" Mess on April 17, 2008, to inaugurate and publicize the Washington Nationals Baseball Stadium (now Newpope has become little more than a huckster for secular interests), a delegation of U.S. Congressmen, led by the most radical Newchurcher of them all, the female Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi, who uncompromisingly stands for a woman's "right" to murder her baby, plans to march right up to Newpope's Novus Ordo dinner table to get their cookie. Undoubtedly, pro-abortion senators Ted Kennedy and John Kerry will join them.
In 2004, Pelosi was one of 48 Newchurchers in the Congress who signed a letter protesting those in the U.S. "Catholic" hierarchy who murmured against the pro-abortion stand of her and her pro-abortion colleagues (but, of course, the Newchurch bishops did nothing against the pro-abortionists). Pelosi, who apparently flunked children's catechism, wrote: "Criticism of us on a matter that is essentially one of personal morality will deter other Catholics from entering politics, and in the long run the Church will suffer." [Source: Associated Press]
Good Catholics, since when did murder become for any true Catholic a matter of personal morality rather than God's morality?! None of the pro-abortion congressmen had the guts at least to be honest and boycott Benedict-Ratzinger. No, they couldn't pass up the photo-ops slobbering all over St. Peter's ring that they on all other occasions spit upon.
All five Newchurch justices of the United States Supreme Court (Chief Justice John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Anthony Kennedy, Antonin Scalia, Clarence Thomas), joined by John Paul Stevens and Stephen Breyer, taught Benedict-Ratzinger some Catholic theology on April 16, 2008, while he was dallying in President Bush's rose garden. The high court handed down then its 7-2 decision clearing the way for the reinstatement of the death penalty in the states. In confirming the constitutionality of the death penalty, the justices agreed with the Universal Doctor of the Church, St. Thomas Aquinas, and the other Fathers of the Church against Benedict-Ratzinger, a prominent death-penalty critic.
The justices are currently hearing another case in which rapists of children will be subjected to the death penalty, as Christ Himself provided (Matthew 18:6). Benedict-Ratzinger, who has consistently secreted his child-raping Newchurch presbyters so that they have not had to face the consequences of their crimes cannot be happy at this prospect. [Source: Associated Press]
The constant half-denials of the Newchurch about the systemic nature of its sexually-perverted and financially-profligate presbyterate and episcopate around the world and its complicities to cover up crimes have reduced the post Vatican II period to a Hermeneutic of Promiscuity.
No wonder several of Our Lady's apparitions, including Akita, warn about corruption of the Church and disunity among the hierarchy. The rotten fruits are there now for all to see. Benedict-Ratzinger's New Order regime is totally corrupt and should be prosecuted in public for the damage it has done to the good name of Our Blessed Lord and Our Blessed Lady. Its behaviour is so shameless they it is even exploiting The Holy Sacrifice of The Mass of All Time in order to fulfill its pantheistic political objectives.
Before Benedict-Ratzinger disembarked from his jet at Andrews Air Force Base near Washington, D.C., on April 15, 2008, to begin his six-day U.S. junket, he was grilled on his involvement in the Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal that has been gripping his administration and racked up a price tag in the United States alone so far of $2,000,000,000. His feeble response to persistent questions by the international press was: "We were embarrassed."
He showed no indignation, no real emotion at all, about the more than 10,000 crimes in the United States alone that have been and are still being committed against Newchurch children by his clergy. Moreover, he avoided discussing the fact that under his watch, Newchurch seminaries have been turned literally into homosexual brothels. "I would not speak in this moment about homosexuality," he replied. On November 4, 2005, he had issued an Instruction concerning the Criteria for the Discernment of Vocations with regard to Persons with Homosexual Tendencies in view of Their Admission to the Seminary and to Holy Orders, a document that even Newchurch "neocon" criticized as being "soft on 'gay.'"
Benedict-Ratzinger's ineffectual talk did not satisfy Becky Ianni, who said she was assaulted by her New Order parish presbyter from 1967-1969, the very years when the Novus Ordo was being introduced into Newchurchi. She was aged 9-11 during those years. "He talks about feeling shame for the scandal but it's a far cry from the shame that victims have had to live with our entire lives. We don’t really need his sense of shame. We need him to take firm actions to correct the situation." [Source: New York Times]
But this and other victims will have to wait until Hell freezes over to get Benedict-Ratzinger to take any punitive action. Indicating that he still embraces to his bosom sex criminals and anti-Catholic radicals in his hierarchy, he was greeted by the following group of congeries of Modernist Newchurch prelates:
Good Catholics, Benedict-Ratzinger is unrepentant. Commissioned at the turn of the century by JPII to be Sex-crimes Czar, he has essentially done nothing in these last years to root sex criminals out of Newchurch. In fact, he extended the local diocesan cover-ups to the Church as a whole from Rome. Then, when he became pope in 2005, continued the cover-up and issued a document that allowed "gay" radicals back into New Order seminaries after three years. Needless to say, the city of Boston, where the Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal first broke into public notice, is not on Benedict-Ratzinger's U.S. itinerary. Meanwhile, Boston's discredited Cardinal Bernard Law remains in Rome with every sign of papal "approval," in a palace and with a generous stipend provided by Benedict-Ratzinger.
Benedict-Ratzinger has chosen to introduce his U.S. junket by dumping on the Bill of Rights, the ten Amendments to the U.S. Constitution that are arguably more American than any other element of that document and most beloved around the world by conservative peoples. He seemed to be dissing the Second Amendment, which protects "the right of the people to keep and bear arms," in an April 2008 message to a Newvatican seminar on disarmament, development, and peace.
Moreover, Newpope also seemed to have let his love of Mohammedan terrorists get the better of him, as je waxed on and on about "military spending." He apparently has forgotten that his now-beloved Vatican would have been bombed into non-existence without that the generous "military spending" of the United States.
Oh, sorry, we forgot that Herr Ratzinger wasn't in the Vatican then. He was busy functioning as a member of the Hitler Youth while Pope Pius XII was saving the Jews of Italy against the predations of Hitler's crowd, which Joseph embraced to the extent of putting on its heathen uniform.
It seems that the U.S. government, whose Presidential candidates all embrace "gay" marriage (otherwise known as "unions"), is raiding Mormons in Texas who practice polygamy according to their Book of Mormon and the Jewish Old Testament.
"This whole situation is abusive and out of hand," said Merril Jessop, a presiding elder in the Mormon church. "The nearest thing I have ever seen comparable to this, even on the TV shows, is Nazi Germany. The only thing we ask of the governor and citizens of Texas," Jessop said, "is to give every man, woman, and child due process and an attorney before they destroy their lives." Jessop extended Texas' governor an invitation to come and see where these children are now and what conditions they are being placed under and then to come and see what kind of home they were taken from. Jessop then went one further, inviting a fellow Texan, President George Bush, to come and see what the state is doing to its citizens. "What can be more important than the safety and protection of the children of America?" he asked.
Isn't this sheer hypocrisy in a government that approves abortions, gay "unions," and sodomy? What's the difference with polygamy? [Source: KTAR Radio]
A new poll, released April 20, 2008, and conducted in February 2008 by Center for Applied Research at Georgetown University, a Newjesuit institution, revealed a sobering picture about how unCatholic the remaining Newchurchers have become. Extracting information from the survey, we see the following picture of Newchurchers of the future, after forty years of the New Order:
The horselaugh about this poll is that it was conducted under the auspices of the U.S. Conference of Catholic [sic] Communications Committee Chairman, San Francisco Newchurch archbishop George "The Homophile" Niederauer, who claims that Newchurch's problems can be corrected by "better religious instruction." "The challenge for church leaders," he said, "is to help them see what Catholicism really means." This comes from the man who personally hands out the Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid to transvestites who call themselves the Sisters [Brothers?] of Perpetual Indulgence and who dress themselves for the occasion in punk-rock make-up and costume.
Good Catholics, this poll simply confirms that fact that no one with any sight can deny that these Newchurchers are bereft of Catholicism. They are quickly turning what little of it is left into the worst kind of Protestant and pagan sect. It is this New Order institution of which the "Motu" Mess is a willing handmaiden.
When Benedict-Ratzinger goes to the United States on his April 15-20, 2008, junket, he will find his Newchurch school system decimated. Since just the year 2000, 1,267 Catholic schools have been closed, and many more are slated to be slammed shut, as Newchurchers abandon any pretence of a "Catholic" school system.
Nevertheless, Benedict-Ratzinger will snub his own Newchurch K-12 educators to hobnob with Newchurch college presidents. Since pre-Vatican II times, when there were 12,893 Catholic schools with about 5,250,000 students, the New Order has had the effect of slashing that number to 7,378 schools with only 2,270,000 million students. Moreover, the decline in enrollment is accelerating, fueling further school closures.
To call what remains "parochial" is a misnomer. The Newchurch schools that are now taking taxpayer money like the public schools do not have prayers and have stripped religion from the curriculum. Catholic schools were once considered vital to passing on the faith to the next generation and to exposing multitudes of non-Catholics to the church. Now the Catholic Faith is not being passed on, and Vatican II's false oecumenism has killed even the belief in Catholicism among the Newchurchers.
It seems that Newchurch can ignore the facts no longer. The Novus Ordo is dragging it into oblivion. At an April 10, 2008, press conference, Newchurch bishop Joseph Galante, of Camden, New Jersey, admitted an "appalling" Novus Ordo service Mass attendance rate of 24 per cent to explain his closing half the diocese's parishes, 66 of 124. At that, 24 per cent is an inflated rate, since independent studies of Novus Ordo attendance across the United States indicate a true figure about half that.
Galante referred wistfully to the pre-Vatican II figures that showed high and weekly attendance by Catholics when the true Mass was available to them. In 1958 the Gallup Poll reported that four out of five Catholics attended Mass. Since Vatican II that number has sunk to one out of seven. For further information, click on Polls & Statistics in the TRADITIO Library of Files (FAQs and Catholic Apologetics).
Galante said that presbyters must cease being leaders, but reduce themselves to collaborators. He told seminarians (what few are left in Newchurch) that their job will be to "form" those lay collaborators and then leave, with their own role to be taken over by "paid, professional staff," as it is in Protestant mega-churches.

Good Catholics, you don't want to be any part of this Protestant New Order Church of the future (and the present). It is long past time for you completely to cut the cord to the New Order that is no longer Catholic and for you to find an oasis of the true Catholic Faith, doctrine, and morality.
Benedict-Ratzinger is planning a Youth Rally in Yonkers, New York, on April 19, 2008, at the end of his U.S. junket, for which the attendees are being told to leave their rosaries at home and forget traditional choirs. Instead, Newpope's message to them is: Rock on!
Kelly Clarkson, the former American Idol winner, is one of several punk-rock vocalists slated to perform before a crowd of 25,000 New Order youth at the Papal Youth Rally. Most recently, punk vocalist TobyMac was added to the musical line-up, with the rock bands Third Day and Three Graces. Benedict-Ratzinger joins his prececessor, JPII the Ungreat in supporting trash punk-rock music. TobyMac's "rap" group, DC Talk, performed at JPII's youth events in Denver (1993) and St. Louis (1999).
Recent studies show that since Vatican II only 15 per cent of college-aged Newchurchers attend the Novus Ordo service. and that these Newchurch youths generally reject Catholic doctrine by supporting abortion, homosexuality, and divorce. [Source: Christian Post]
No doubt: Benedict-Ratzinger is a Novus Ordo fan(atic). He is just as much of, if not more of, a Modernist Conciliar pope than Paul VI and JPII. As the French say, Plus ça change, plus ça męme chose.
Benedict-Ratzinger's personally-appointed Pro-"gay" Newchurch archbishop of San Francisco, George Niederauer, at a Catholic [sic] Charities on April 11, 2008, will honor a prominent financier of abortions and embryonic stem-cell research, George Marcus, with the "Loaves and Fishes" Award, recognizing his promotion of abortion and embryonic stem-cell research as "outstanding philanthropic works that epitomize the spirit of the faith traditions of charity and generosity." Catholic Charities is the anti-Catholic, immoral organization that regularly placed innocent children in the clutches of San Francisco's "gay" predators for adoption.
Marcus was a major financial backer of the "No on 73" campaign, a citizen-based initiative that would have required notification to the parents of underage girls before they obtained an abortion. Marcus also backed a referendum to provide taxpayer funding for embryonic stem-cell research. He has been a significant donor to the anti-Catholic, pro-abortion organization Planned Parenthood. [Source: Catholic World News]
Good Catholics, the TRADITIO Fathers called it for you again. Didn't we tell you that after the neo-con Newchurchers criticized Niederauer for personally handing out the Novus Ordo to the anti-Catholic Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence in their full transvestite regalia, there would be no follow-up? The Newchurchers' letters and faxes to Benedict-Ratzinger fell on deaf ears, as Newpope covertly supports the "gay" agenda in New Order seminaries and "gay"-based sex crimes that are rampant among his Newchurch clergy. Nor has Niederauer's "gay" parish in San Francisco been shut down.
When will the neo-cons, Motarians, and pseudo-traditionalists take some Dristan and open their nostrils to the stink of Newchurch -- and then get out instead of supporting the New Order?
Timothy Broglio, Newchurch archbishop for the Military Services in the United States, has rejected any "Motu" Messes for the military, ruling that Benedict-Ratzinger's Summorum pontificum prohibits the armed forces from having such services because the military is not a "stable community," as Newpope requires. Broglio has indicated that "fidelity to the [New]Church and the Holy Father" require that those in the military attend the Novus Ordo service.
Isn't it just like those Liberalists to reject hypocritically for themselves what they encourage for others?
It seems that Presiding Episcopalian Bishopess Katharine Jefferts-Schori told Seattle Episcopalian youth at a meeting on April 10, 2008, to "question authority." But when traditional Episcopalians questioned Schori's own "authority" to impose unChristian morals and pagan priestesses upon Episocopalians, she flipped out, vowing to "excommunicate" them and steal their churches.
Good Catholics, you are quite familiar with this Liberalist/Modernist hypocrisy. You have been getting the same thing from the phony Newchurch of the New Order. Benedict-Ratzinger may be dressing it in Prada shoes and Gucci sunglasses, but underneath it's the same offal that his post-conciliar predecessors shoveled out for the last forty years.
The Newchurch bishops of Poland claim that JPII's heart is not Roman, but Polish. Therefore, they want Benedict-Ratzinger literally to cut out JPII's heart and send it back to the Newchurch cathedral of Krakow. It seems that Benedict-Ratzinger may be already be considering putting JPII's cadaver -- with or without heart is unspecified -- on public display in St. Peter's Basilica itself. [Source: The Times]
Benedict-Ratzinger, an admirer of the Modernism of his predecessor, will certainly not take the action that Pope Stephen took against his dead predecessor Pope Formosus. Pope Stephen had Pope Formosus's body exhumed and charged before the so-called "Cadaver" Council with suspected heresy and invalidly usurping the papal throne. When he was found guilty, Formosus was stripped of his papal vestments, and the three fingers of his right hand -- the fingers with which he conferred blessings -- were cut off and cast away contemptuously. Formosus' body was then thrown into the Tiber.
Pope Stephen deposed Pope Formosus, annulled all his decrees, and pronounced all the ordinations conferred by him invalid. Although several of Stephen's successors rehabilitated Formosus, Pope Sergius III (904-911) upheld Stephen's actions. Boniface VI (896), Stephen's immediate predecessor, was an excommunicated priest. Pope Formosus had himself been excommunicated in 872 before he suppositiously became pope.

If JPII opposed the introduction of altar girls at least "in word," as you state, why did this practice come about in his pontificate? Since, admittedly, the Novus Ordo has become a "Mess" of vast proportions, what is the solution? Obviously, a return to the truths and traditions of our ancient Faith!
The Fathers Reply.
It came about because "words" mean nothing in Newchurch. Papal documents are no longer authoritative theological documents, but have become mere political propaganda pieces, often contradicting one another to please opposing elements in Newchurch. Remember that we are in the Post--Modernist period in Newchurch. The Post-modernists have moved beyond the Modernists that Pope St. Pius X condemned and combated at the turn of the twentieth century, The Post-modernists have learned a lot of their deceptive their techniques from the methods of Communist propaganda of the 1950s and early 1960s, which nicely dovetailed into Vatican II (1962-1965).
The Newchurch of the New Order has been as successful in its propaganda as the Communists of the 1950s and 1960s, who portrayed Stalinism as if it were a Monet. Look at how many Newchurchers calling themselves "conservative" or even "traditional" have so easily bought the New Order propaganda and sold out to the unCatholic Great "Motu" Mess Hoax, which Benedict-Ratzinger concocted to keep them in the New Order and putting their money into the collection-plate to pay for Newchurch's continuing and rampant sex crimes and embezzlements.
Remember that Paul VI opposed the abomination of giving the Novus Ordo cookie in the hand, and he was ignored. But instead of enforcing his "word," that Conciliar pope turned volte-face and invalidly allowed the abomination to continue, and even participated in it himself. What did he care? He had essentially sold out to the New Order of the Masonic presbyter Hannibal Bugnini and lost the Catholic Faith by the time of his own death in 1978. For further information, click on FAQ10: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Beliefs? in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics) in the section, "Communion in the Hand."
Those selling out to the "Motu" Mess are continuing to see their false hopes dashed in what the TRADITIO Network has called from the beginning Benedict-Ratzinger's Great "Motu" Mess Hoax. Benedict-Ratzinger's new Liturgy Chief, Msgr. Guido Marini, has announced that the guidelines that will be used for the Novus Ordo Messes during the April 15-20, 2008, junket to the United States is "substantially the same" as the set developed during the pontificate of JPII with its "Clown" Messes.
Marini said that the Novus Ordo Readings, Prayers of the Faithful, music, readers, and service will be in full accord with the most Modernist provisions of the U.S. Conference of Catholic [sic] Bishops. These provisions include the use of lectoresses and altar-girls. Marini confirmed that Newpope and Newvatican had raised no objections to the Protestant Gospel "numbers" that will be the principal music at Benedict-Ratzinger's Messes.
Marini announced that far from returning to "older liturgical elements," Benedict-Ratzinger embraces new developments. Marini denied former "rumors" that Benedict-Ratzinger would at any time simulate a Mess according to his "Motu" rite of 1962/2008. "My office has heard nothing of this. I have not been asked to plan anything," he said.
Marini made another startling revelation. He said that the cookies to be handed out at the April 17, 2008, Mess in Washington's Nationals Baseball Park and April 20, 2008, Mess in New York's Yankee Baseball Stadium will not be fabricated by Benedict-Ratzinger, but by unspecified Novus Ordo presbyters, presumably in the two U.S. cities. These "pre-manufactured" cookies will not even rest on the papal supper table at Mess. [Source: Catholic News Service]
Good Catholics, from now on when any "conservative" Newchurcher or Motarian tells you that Benedict-Ratzinger is really any different from his predecessor, you can laugh him right in the face and say that the only change is from Polish to German, but certainly not to Roman Catholic. Benedict-Ratzinger remains a full-faced public devotee of the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Novus Ordo service and obviously has no problem with altar-servettes at his own Messes. He thus takes the Novus Ordo even one step further than his predecessor, since JPII supposedly rejected the practice -- at least in word.
Here's an update on the new "pastoral plan" of the Newchurch archdiocese of New Orleans, Louisiana, which closes over twenty churches in the New Orleans area to pay in part for the archdiocese's sex crimes. I am hearing from many conservatives Newchurchers and traditional Catholics, who state that the plan reflects an attack on them. Several churches with "conservative" congregations are being closed with the parishioners being asked to merge, with "progressive" parishes that have "Jazz" Messes and the like.
Also, the existing "Motu" Mess in New Orleans will be relocated to one of the closed Novus Ordo temples outside of town. It doesn't take any brains to figure out why this Mess has been relocated to a mere kilometre away from the existing SSPX chapel!
One Novus Ordo temple that Benedict-Ratzinger will enter on his April 15-20, 2008, junket to the United States is far from the Catholic cathedral that it was before Vatican II.
I spent Christmas in New York. Thinking that a Christmas visit to St. Patrick's Cathedral on Fifth Avenue would be uplifting, I made the error of wandering into the historic church late one afternoon. The steps leading up to the front doors were littered with French fries, hamburger wrappers, and cigarette butts. People were screaming instructions to each other as they posed for video cameras. Others were smoking or making out.
I'm sorry to say that inside the scene inside was no better. I saw more cameras and strollers with howling babies. The days of hushed voices in church are apparently long gone. Many visitors appeared unaware that when worshippers light candles to make a special request, a donation is appropriate. When I saw teenagers with baseball caps worn in reverse and listening to portable CD players, I couldn’t take it anymore. I asked one of the ushers if it was no longer the practice for men to remove their hats inside church. “What do you expect me to do?” he asked.
Well, if I were a policy maker at St. Patrick's Cathedral, I would enforce all of the rules, written and unwritten, about proper church behavior. And if I couldn’t make the rules stick, then I would shut the doors and lock them after the last daily service. And I would station a custodian outside the church to clean up. St. Patrick’s Cathedral shouldn’t look like a Jack-in-the-Box.
The Fathers Reply.
And why shouldn't St. Patrick's, now an artifact of the New Order,` look like Jack-in-the-Box? It is hard to think of a better description of the New Order: a place where Newchurchers can pig out on lethal swill. In saying that, we apologize to Jack-in-the-Box and pigs, but not to Newchurch.
Unam, sanctam, catholicam et apostolicam ecclesiam. So says the Nicaeo-Constantinopolitan Creed, formulated by the dogmatic Council of Nicaea to combat the Arian heretics of the fourth century. One proof that the New Order is not Catholic is its failure in unity. The Traditional Latin Mass of the Holy Roman See has had one, only one, Canon. The term canon is an ancient Greek one, specifying a standard, that part of the Mass in which the Consecration occurs.
Showing its Modernist origins, the New Order first had to change the terminology to Eucharistic prayer, so that more than one "standard" could be introduced. In the invalid New Order, the Catholic and Apostolic Roman Canon no longer exists. The Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini changed it for his Novus Ordo and added several other invalid "Eucharistic prayers" to it. These Eucharistic prayers, which vary even from country to country, now number in the United States, for example, thirteen official ones, not to speak of the multitudes of unofficial ones that are made up by presbyters as they go along.
Benedict-Ratzinger falsely calls these invalid prayers the "Ordinary Rite," and the Motarians accept them as legitimate. They must; otherwise, their Bugninized-Ratzingerized "Motu" Mess would be yanked away from them. This situation simply confirms how phony, invalid, hypocritical, and unCatholic the Great "Motu" Mess Hoax is!
This Bugnini whose work in establishing the New Order is so admired by Benedict-Ratzinger went too far even for the most Modernist of Paul VI's officials. Bugnini's dismissal was called for at a meeting on June 19, 1975, by Cardinal Seper and eighteen other cardinals, on the grounds that he had been responsible for the proliferation of messes sauvages [wild masses], that is, of unauthorized Eucharistic prayers. Apparently, Seper and the other Modernist cardinals had no problem with the "authorized" ones! By 1971, only one year after the Novus Ordo became mandatory, there were 200 "Eucharistic prayers" published and in use!
Paul VI, besieged by more and more undeniable evidence that Bugnini was a Freemason, was finally forced to remove him from the liturgical commission on July 9, 1975, but then sent him in January 1976 to be pro-Nuncio in Iran, where in 1980 he is said to have betrayed American hostage secrets to the Iranian ayatollahs. Bugnini died in Rome at the age of 70 in 1982. He allegedly committed suicide because of his disgrace.
Just when you thought that the New Order couldn't get any more pagan, Newchurch bishop Michael Malone and David Walker joined Anglican bishops Brian Farran and Graeme Rutherford at Newcastle's Anglican Cathedral in Australia to smoke "weed" together. The "Psychedelic" Mess Service marked the signing of an Oecumenical Covenant joining activities of the two diocesan sects. The "smoking" ceremony is a pagan rite, in which the participants inhale the psychedelic smoke of the tree Xanthorrhoea preissei, much as American Indians inhale the psychedelic smoke of Lophophroa williamsii (peyote).
In 1995 JPII scandalized the Catholic world by playing pagan priest in officiating at an aboriginal "smoking ceremony," in which he got whacked by inhaling the "weed" at a Novus Ordo "Psychedelic" Mess at Ranwick Racecourse in Sydney, Australia. [Source: CathNews]
At least an Anglican minister had more sense than the whacked-out Newchurch bishops. In October 2007, Rev. David Cole made news by refusing to allow a "Smoking Ceremony" to be part of the Anglican funeral service for Dean Shillingworth. The minister said that the pagan rites "clashed" with the Christian Anglican rites. [Source: Australian Daily Telegraph]
In a ruling that could eventually allow traditional Catholics to leave the jurisdiction of the New Order and take their parish churches and property with them, a Virginia County Circuit Court Judge has ruled that a congregation of traditional Episcopalians in Falls Church, Virginia, can leave the liberalist U.S. Episcopalian Church headed by bishopess Katherine Jefferts-Schori and take its church and property with it to operate under the jurisdiction of a traditional Anglican bishop. The Falls Church congregation once boasted George Washington as its vestryman.
Judge Randy Bellows on April 3, 2008, ruled that the evidence is "overwhelming" that the Episcopalian Diocese of Virginia is currently in a state of "division" and that, therefore, control of its property sits with the congregations, not the previous mother church. The ruling includes ten other churches in Virginia, whose monetary value exceeds $20,000,000.
The Virginia congregations seceded from Jefferts-Schori's jursidiction because she and her administration support the consecration of openly "gay" bishops. As a sizeable number of traditional Episcopalian congregations is leaving the liberalist jurisdiction to join with traditional bishops, the struggle over who gets hundreds of millions of dollars of church property is becoming more and more intense.
Like the Newchurch bishops of the New Order, who refuse to turn over closed churches to traditional Catholics, Jefferts-Schori stated in open court that she would rather see the churches sold and deconsecrated for secular purposes than passed on to the traditional congregations. Likewise, she has given up any pretence of the "Christian charity" that she exudes for sodomites and slanders the traditional Episcopalians by calling them "rebels," a term that can be a fighting-word in the Southern United States. Haven't we traditional Catholics seen just the same villainous modus operandi from Newchurch hierarchs since Vatican II? [Source: Time]
Capuchin presbyter-pastor Giorgio Butterini, of the Newparish of the Holy Spirit in the north Italian City of Trent, where the Church's most influential dogmatic council occurred, has stolen this year's Easter collection for pay for the construction of a new neighboring mosque. The collection came to over $1500. The Newchurch bishop of Trent, Luigi Bressan, permitted the money to be converted to the Mohammedans for this purpose.
I will never believe that God would allow men whom He has called to the priesthood to have invalid Holy Orders. Common sense tells me that God, in His infinite wisdom, would not allow the ordination of so many men to the priesthood to be invalid. We're talking about all the priests throughout the world -- thousands and thousands of men. That would mean that all the Sacraments that they confer upon the people are also invalid. Do you really believe God would allow this to happen?
The Fathers Reply.
Yes we do believe that as a possibility, because God Himself tells us so. First of all, His two fonts of Public Revelation to us, Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, make it clear that the New Order does not "ordain priests to Holy Orders," but "installs presbyters to preside over the assembly," as the Protestants do. This is done through the New Ordinal of 1968, which fails the dogmatic test of Vatican I and Pope Leo XIII's Apostolicae Curae. These certainly aren't "all the priests throughout the world," just New Order presbyters.
Because you put so much stock in common sense, let us look at the fact that "vocations" to the New Order presbyterate are getting closer and closer to zero since the New Order. At the current rate there will be essentially no more New Order presbyters left in a couple of decades. In the United States, for example, the number of priests ordained in 1965 was 1575, and the number of New Ordo presbyters installed in 2006 was 431 -- a drop of almost three-quarters in just forty years! That is why the New Order now has large numbers of "priestless" Messes, lay deacons, and lay ministers.
A reading of Sacred Scripture makes it clear that when the members of the Church go awry, God allows it to suffer in order to correct itself. In the past, the Church has been deprived of its sacrifical worship of God. The First Book of Machabees documents this fact, as well as several passages in the Prophet Daniel. Moreover, Christ Himself indicates that most will have fallen away from the true Faith over time: "But yet the Son of Man, when he cometh, shall he find, think you, faith on earth?" (Luke 18:8/DRV).
You seem to be suffering from what we call the "Ostrich" Syndrome. You refuse to recognize facts even when they are patent, instead sticking your head in the sand and hoping that reality will go away. Instead, you will merely suffocate from lack of the true Faith.
It is almost amusing to follow the careers of neo-con Newchurchers like Joseph Fessio. Newchurch booted him out of the University of San Francisco, a Newjesuit operation, even though Fessio himself is a Newjesuit. More recently, Benedict-Ratzinger's knight, Founder Thomas Monaghan, booted him out of Ave Maria University, a neo-con operation that has been bathed in scandal. Fessio had formerly been escorted off campus by security police. Then, on March 21, 2008, the University announced that Fessio had been formally dismissed. Now Fessio has affiliated with Chesterton Academy, yet another new neo-con start-up in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, complete with "Daily" Mess. The record of Fessio's neo-con operations seems like the kiss of death!
Fessio runs Ignatius Press, a cesspool of New Order books. He also took over the periodicals Catholic World Report and Homiletic and Pastoral Review, which he has converted into New Order mouthpieces. He follows his principal, Benedict-Ratzinger, in pushing a neo-con version of the Novus Ordo Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service. In that capacity, he co-founded a Society for the Renewal of the Sacred Liturgy, a code-name for a new Novus Ordo. He also was a consultant on the new Modernist Catechism of the Catholic Church.
The Apple of Eden doesn't fall far from the tree!
Benedict-Ratzinger is expected to issue yet another statement during the week of April 6, 2008, in which he will confirm his Modernist oecumenical policy that Jews are not called to convert to Jesus Christ as their Messias and that Newchurch will make no missionary efforts to convert Jews to Newchurch. The Chief Rabbinate of Italy, as well as the leadership of German Jewry, announced that they are cutting off ties with Newchurch until Benedict-Ratzinger changes the prayer for the fourth time. [Source: Haaretz]
In addition, Benedict-Ratzinger has announced a new stop on his April 2008 junket to the United States and the United Nations. He will one-up his prayer session in April 2005 at the Jewish synagogue in Cologne, Germany, by praying with the Jews at the Park East Synagogue in New York on April l8, 2008, the day before the Jewish Passover begins. In 2008 Passover begins on Good Friday, the day of Christ's crucifixion under the authority of the Roman government, goaded on mercilessly by the High Priest Caiphas and his Temple lieutenants at the time.
Poor Benedict-Ratzinger, he just can't seem to get it right. He is probably kicking himself now that he didn't do the Catholic thing from the start: stick with the Catholic and Apostolic prayer in the Traditional Latin Mass and tell the Jewish leaders to go pound sand.
Is Newvatican playing chicken now? It appears that Benedict-Ratzinger gave a rare private audience in February 2008 to Popeye's Fried Chicken magnate Al Copeland. Newchurch buried the four-time divorcé on March 31, 2008, with all the pomp and circumstance that the New Order could muster in a Novus Ordo Mess at Loyola University's Gothic church. Three of Copeland's "ex-wives" attended. Copeland continued his scandalous behavior to the end. He was buried the accompaniment of nine cars, eight motorcycles, a sport-utility vehicle, a dune buggy, and a speedboat. [Source: Times Picayune]
Now, maybe Copeland repented at the end (one hopes so), but there is no excuse for Newchurch to engage in such scandalous behavior, flaunting his public sins. The situation demanded very private exequies. Yet these scandalous funerals are commonplace in Newchurch now. One recalls the public New Order funeral of a three-times divorced California congressman, a "gay"-advocate dress-designer, and a prominent divorced opera-singer.
Indicating what Newrome really thinks about traditional Catholics, Benedict-Ratzinger's chief propagandist for the New Order's "Motu" Mess, Dario Hoyos, President of the pope's Ecclesia Dei Commission, has referred to traditional Catholics as "separated brethren," the same term that Newrome uses of Protestants. Hoyos let the cat out of the bag in March 31, 2008, interview with L'Osservatore Romano, the unofficial newspaper of Newvatican. Hoyos, the supposed head of the "Motu" movement, also admitted in the interview that he himself celebrates not the "Motu" Mess, but the Novus Ordo service daily!
In the interview, Hoyos also revealed that Benedict-Ratzinger was not attempting to "return to the past" by appearing to approve the "Motu" Mess. Newpope remains a full-throated advocate of the Novus Ordo service. Hoyos referred to the invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Novus Ordo Mess, which Newpope calls the "Ordinary Rite" of Newchurch, as "a treasure." Hoyos also said that Benedict-Ratzinger encourages the use of the Novus Ordo service in Latin.
Good Catholics, you can easily see what is going on here. Under the ambiguous term "Latin Mass," Benedict-Ratzinger and his lieutenants are deliberately mixing together the invalid Novus Ordo service in Latin and the 1962-2007-2008 "Motu" Mess. Benedict-Ratzinger and his lieutenants are just as committed to the Novus Ordo as ever. They just appear to coddle the Motarians to pick their pockets for money to pay for their sex crimes.
The Newchurch of the New Order has now publicly admitted that as of 2006 "for the first time in history, we are no longer at the top: Muslims have overtaken us." Msgr. Vittorio Formenti made the admission in a March 30, 2008, interview with Newvatican's unofficial newspaper L'Osservatore Romano. Formenti said that Newchurchers accounted for only 17.4 per cent of the world population, whereas Mohammedans were at 19.2 per cent. the number of Christians in the world has dropped to 33 per cent.Good Catholics, let's face it. Newchurch and its New Order is dying fast. No phony "Motu" Mess is going to save it. It must be extirpated root and branch so that the true Church of Christ, the Catholic Church of Tradition can be replanted in full vigor and exclusivity.
After Ireland went Newchurch after Vatican II, that country has become maniacal in rejecting the Catholic Faith that it formerly embraced. The Irish government will soon introduce legislation recognizing "gay" marriage. It already recognizes divorce.
In December 2008 the government's Justice Minister, Brian Lenihan, reassured members of the Gay and Lesbian Network (GLEN) that the government is "committed to providing a more supportive and secure legal environment for same-sex couples." GLEN welcomed news of the pending legislation, saying that it would be a "critical psychological milestone" for Irish homosexuals. [Source: Irish Times]
In a bold action that has rarely been seen, but may now become more prevalent, the San Jose Mercury News, a major newspaper serving a metropolis of over 1,000,000, has called the Newchurch bishop of Oakland, California since 2003, a liar. Investigative reporters for the newspaper have blown the roof off of Vigneron's "Apology" Messes. While Vigneron seemed, on the surface, to be apologizing for his presbyters' sex crimes against children, both girls and boys, he was actually lying to his congregations: he failed to disclose the true record of sex crimes in the Newchurch diocese of Oakland, California, one of most despicable examples of cover-up in Newchurch.
The Newchurch bishop claimed that only a dozen presbyters were involved; in fact, the number revealed in the investigation by the newspaper into Newchurch and court records is over 500% greater and involves 75% of the Newchurch diocese's parishes. This number does not include crimes by lay deacons, teachers, and coaches, nor do they include presbyters who committed crimes against adults.
The investigative reporters also found:
A founder of religious institute, Fr. Gerald Fitzgerald, told the investigative reporters how different the situation was before Vatican II. He said, "If I were a bishop, I would tremble when I failed to report them [any sex criminals] to Rome for involuntary laicization," otherwise known as "defrocking." Fitzgerald implied the contrast with the laissez-faire post-Vatican II popes Paul VI, JPII, and Benedict-Ratzinger, who, instead of throwing the criminals out of the Newchurch of the New Order, actually aid and abet their crimes. The investigative reporters found that accused presbyters had little to fear from the Newchurch powers that be. In fact, in a handful of cases, they were themselves the powers that be. Over two dozen Newchurch bishops currently stand charged with sex crimes. Benedict-Ratzinger himself has been cited in several cases.
The former bishop of Oakland (1977-2003), John Cummins, was also cited in the cover-up of these crimes. The investigative reporters said that "given the relatively small community of diocesan priests [sic], most of whom were transferred routinely every few years, at least 19 accused priests worked or lived with one another or with Cummins at various times, serving together at parishes, schools or on one of the numerous diocesan boards and committees.
Cummin's Vicar General and Chancellor for sixteen years, George Crispin, who was the bishop's hit man to destroy the traditional 19th-century cathedral of St. Francis de Sales and turn it into a mini-mall, was charged with assault against a boy in his parish. The Newchurch diocese paid off the victim with $600,000. Crespin is still a presbyter "in good standing" with Newchurch, living at St. Joseph the Worker parish in Berkeley. [Source: San Jose Mercury News]
Also within the diocese is a "Motu" organization operating under the auspices of the New Order Church, the Institute of Christ the King, whose U.S. Superior was imprisoned for sex crimes, and one of whose priests was imprisoned for grand theft.
The fiasco over Benedict-Ratzinger's bungling of the Good Friday Prayer for the Jews has led the leader of the Central Council of Jews in Germany to sever relations with him. Benedict-Ratzinger failed to stand for the traditional ancient Good Friday prayer in his "Motu" Mess and thus alienated traditional Catholics. He went to implement a prayer for the Good Friday "Motu" service that was based on the completely-oecumenized Novus Ordo prayer. As a result, the President of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, Charlotte Knobloch, the pope's co-countryman, has announced that she has severed relations with Benedict-Ratzinger.
While we traditional Catholics were celebrating Sunday in White, the Octave Day of Easter, last Sunday, Newchurchers were substituting the Novus Ordo's "Divine Mercy" Sunday. I've done a little research, and I've read about the dubious nature of Sr. Faustina's diary and the way in which the devotion was egged on by her co-Pole, JPII, who also gave us those fabricated "Luminous Mysteries" for the Rosary. Are my conclusions correct? Is the "Divine Mercy" devotion just another Novus Ordo fake?
The Fathers Reply.
You've got it! A local devotion under this title, which is associated with one Faustina Kowalska and a chaplet of the Divine Mercy, was approved by the Ordinary of Vilnius, Poland, in 1936 and from there spread rapidly, especially after World War II in the United States.
It appears that Sr. Faustina could not write, except for a few lines phonetically. Most of her "diary" was concocted by her sisters after her death. Because of the incongruities of the dairy (different handwriting, different use of terms), the devotion was suppressed, and the book of her diary was placed on the Index Librorum Prohibitorum [Index of Forbidden Books]. This decision was upheld by Pope John XXIII in 1958/59.
In early 1978, a Polish cardinal petitioned the Vatican to remove the suppression of the devotion, which was being practiced without sanction in his diocese, and the Vatican replied in the negative, confirming the suppression. By this time the original devotion had been illegally replaced by an oecumenized version framed in New Order terminology -- with substantially changed prayers to promote non-Catholic beliefs and the heresy of universal salvation. Later in 1978 the Polish cardinal was elected pope JPII, and the now modernized version, twice condemned, was now entered onto the Novus Ordo liturgical calendar on the Octave of Easter.
The Octave Day of a feast, particularly of the greatest feast, Easter, is a significant day in itself. The Divine Mercy cult is thus in contravention of the focus of the Catholic liturgy for that day, which is on the Resurrection of Our Lord and faith in His Divinity. As Dom Gueranger, the noted Benedictine liturgical scholar, commented in his fifteen-volume Liturgical Year: "Such is the solemnity of this Sunday that not only is it of greater double rite, but no feast, however great, can ever be kept upon it." That is the true Roman Catholic attitude, which the New Order and JPII spurned.
Not surprisingly, the cult in post-Conciliar times is increasing in its association with another cult, that is, the cult of "Catholic" Charismaticism. This Charismatic Movement is far from true Catholicism, but is a derivative of the Protestant heresy, based on the erroneous notion that emotional experience always accompanies the conferral of grace, whereas the Catholic doctrine is that the only sensible indication of the conferral of grace is the Sacrament itself. Perhaps the cult's association with New Age ideas is why it has become lionized in recent years, whereas popes up to JPII have condemned it.
Is it any wonder that the New Order pushes this corrupted devotion over the traditional devotion to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus? The devotion to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus is a much more ancient devotion, having grown in the early Middle Ages through the efforts of St. Bernard of Clairvaux, a Doctor of the Church, and St. Gertrude. However, it was in the latter half of the seventeenth century that news of three private revelations to St. Margaret Mary Alocoque concerning the Sacred Heart swept the Catholic world and shortly led to the establishment of a feast on the Friday after the Octave of Corpus Christi (the Friday after the Second Sunday after Pentecost).
The Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, which was extended to the Universal Church by Pope Pius IX in 1856, became a feast of atonement for human ingratitude toward God in spite of the supreme sacrifice of Calvary. The theme for the new Mass and the Divine Office was taken from the words of Our Lord to St. Margaret Mary: "Behold the Heart which has loved men so greatly, but which has been given so little love in return." Devotion to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus has been richly indulgenced by the Church, and a Litany of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus is one of only five approved for public recitation.
Given the New Order's apparent corruption of the original devotion to the divine mercy and the pushing of this Charismatic novelty condemned by two popes, traditional Catholics will continue to stand with the more ancient and universally-approved devotion to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus and reject this New Order novelty.

The Newchurch archdiocese of New York has publicly fessed up to the fact that Presbyter Patrick Dunne, pastor of Our Lady of Sorrows Church in White Plains, has since 1991 been embezzling funds from the collection-plate and the poor-box to feed a gambling habit. Even the archdiocese, currently run by Edward Egan, has had to admit that Dunne stole a "very significant amount of church money." Dunne was depositing church checks into his personal account to gamble. [Source: Associated Press]
The Newchurch archdiocese of New York was so incompetent that it took seventeen years to discover the embezzlement of significant amounts of Newchurch funds!
The Traditional Catholic Movement has now expanded to the Eastern-rites! Traditional Eastern-rite Catholics, expressing their revulsion at the Novus Ordo-ization of the Eastern Rites, saw the consecration on Easter Sunday 2008, of four Ukranian Greek Catholic priests as traditional Eastern-rite bishops, without their asking for the "permission" of the Newchurch archbishop of Kyiv, Lubomir Husar, or Benedict-Ratzinger in Newrome.
The consecrations come a little more than four months after the excommunication from the New Order of Fr. Basil Kovpak, founder and head of the Society of St. Josaphat (SSJK), a traditional Ukrainian Greek Catholic society of priests, which is currently associated with the Society of St. Pius X. Fr. Kovpak was "excommunicated" by Husar for attending the ordination of two SSJK priests and five SSJK deacons by SSPX bishop Richard Williamson.
In their Open Letter the new traditional Eastern-rite bishops profess their filial devotion to the true Rome of Tradition and justified their consecration as a necessary action in the face of the Modernism and false Oecumenism of Husar. The new traditional bishops condemned the "schismatic" and "apostate" attitudes of Husar and of his Ukranian Greek hierarchy, as well as the negative attitude being shown by Husar to such devotions as the Rosary, the Way of the Cross, and devotion to the Sacred Heart, inter alia. The bishops' Open Letter also charged that theological Modernism has permeated Newchurch's Ukranian Greek rite, which is now "practical schism" from the Catholic Church of Tradition.
These consecrations are the latest step in the advancement of the Traditional Catholic Movement in several Byzantine Eastern rites, not just the Ukranian Greek. This advancement has been given impetus by Husar's position that the Byzantines affiliated with Newrome should move closer to the formally-schismatic Eastern Orthodox.
It seems that German Benedict-Ratzinger's liberalist New Order religion is gradually permeating Germanic countries. In Vienna's archdiocesan museum, an exhibit honoring a self-avowed Marxist sculptor and painter included graphic depictions of Our Lord and His Apostles engaged in homosexual acts. The archdiocesan museum is right across the street from Vienna's St. Stephan's Cathedral, where in 2007 Benedict-Ratzinger simulated a Novus Ordo Mess.
Benedict-Ratzinger has indicated no condemnation of Vienna's Newchurch cardinal Christoph Schonborn for allowing the blasphemous depiction. Schonborn is already enmeshed in his own Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal.
U.S. Presidential Candidate Barack Hussein Obama, who is running for the Democratic nomination against Hillary Clinton, cuckolded wife of Bill Clinton, has been battered in recent days for supporting his Protestant pastor, Jeremiah Wright, who has been exposed as a racial bigot.
