Both Newchurchers and Eastern Orthodox schismatics were shocked when Romanian Byzantine Newchurch bishop Alexandru Mesian, of Lugoj, Romania, gave the Novus Ordo cookie to schismatic Eastern Orthodox metropolitan Nicolae Corneanu, of Banat, at the consecration of the New Order's Queen of Peace Church in Timisoara on May 25, 2008, as Newchurch archbishop Francisco-Javier Lozano, the Apostolic Nuncio to Romania, looked on. Newchurch chose to perpetrate this outrage with Corneanu, who has admitted that he had cooperated with the secret police under the atheistic Communist regime.
Though Newchurch's Paul VI and Eastern Orthodoxy's patriarch Athenagoras purportedly "lifted the excommunications" from each other in 1964, nothing has changed in over forty years. The Eastern Orthodox are still schismatic, and Newrome won't share the Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid with them. Eastern Orthodox members were outraged, and the Orthodox Patriarchate of Romania issued a statement that Corneanu would be grilled about his action at the next meeting of the Orthodox Synod in July 2008. [Source: CWN]Bernie Fellay and his Fellayites in the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) must be licking their chops now to receive the Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid from Newchurch. If a schismatic bishop who assisted atheistic Communism is an acceptable communicant in the Novus Ordo, why not Fellay & Co.?

Traditional Catholics got another hoot from Newchurch when its former archbishop of Washington, D.C., Theodore McCarrick, praised the current Newchurch archbishop, Donald Wuerl, at a recent commencement speech at Notre Dame Newchurch University as "a great grace to the [New]church in our country as a major Catholic educator and leader." Is McCarrick for real?
Wuerl, the "great Catholic educator" was chastised by Newvatican for being incompetent in canon law, was remanded back to school when he persecuted a presbyter-whistleblower contrary to Newchurch's new canon law of 1983. What made the case doubly embarrassing for Wuerl was the fact that at the time he had a program on the EWTN Charismatic cable network, in which he was supposed to be teaching canon law! Otherwise, this great "expert" on canon law publicly hands out the Novus Ordo cookie to prominent Newchurchers who reject Catholic moral teaching on abortion and "gay" marriage, U.S. Senators Ted Kennedy and John Kerry, and Speaker of the House of Representatives, Nancy Pelosi.
The troika of McCarrick, Wuerl, and Notre Dame is a curious one: Donald "Wimp" Wuerl, praised by Theodore "Mohammed" McCarrick, who prays publicly to Allah, at once-Catholic Notre Dame, now known for its sponsorship of immoral plays and "gay" organizations. (For further information on McCarrick, click on CARRICK: Newchurch's Grand Apostate in the TRADITIO Network's Special Features department.)
San Antonio Newchurchers in the border state of Texas is organizing a network to harbor illegal aliens from the law. This organized crime operation is being run by Newchurchers associated with Catholic [sic] Charities, the organization that, despite its name, has supported "gay" adoptions and other anti-Catholic activities. The "Catholic" organized crime operation is being conducted under the auspices of one of those Novus Ordo "millennial saints," Toribio Romo Gonzales, who died in 1927.

Indications are that JPII is going to be caught up in his own "conanization" mill. The New Order can't wait to claim this conciliar pope as its own "saint." Heaven knows that no sanctity has come from the New Order. JPII's process has been phony from the beginning. The demonstration at his funeral that he be made a "subito santo" were exposed as a fraud. A Polish lobbyist organization was revealed to have paid the demonstrators to stage the "spontaneous" event.
The lies that Newchurch told about JPII's death were profuse. It appeared, first of all, that he died on the evening before April Fool's Day, April 1, 2005, when his death was originally announced by the international press, not, as Newchurch maintained, on the evening before April 2, the beginning of the New Order's concocted "Divine Mercy Sunday." (For further information, click on FAQ11: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Beliefs? in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics) in the section, "Divine Mercy.")
Newchurch then engaged in a spate of lies about the activities of JPII in his final days, during all of which his doctor's published report stated that he was essentially unconscious:
The papal seal ring did disappear for about a week, put to God only knows what uses, whereas according to the process required upon the death of a pope, it was supposed to have been destroyed by the camerarius in the presence of senior cardinals.
Newchurch proposes to "beatify" JPII in Spring 2009. Traditionally, the investigation into the sanctity of a man would take at least a century, possibly many, and certainly longer in the case of JPII, whose numerous works would have to be vetted for several generations for Catholic orthodoxy. But JPII himself so watered down the traditional process of investigation, eliminating the Devil's Advocate and significant numbers of miracles, that he looked like the Roman emperor Nero trying to make himself a god so that he would not be consigned to torture in Hades for the murder of his mother, wives, and hundreds of others! (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, "Canonizations, Post-Conciliar.")
Benedict-Ratzinger has joined the conspiracy to phony up this new "saint" for the Newchurch of the New Order. In 2007, on the second anniversary of JPII's death, he played clairvoyant and stated that his predecessor should become a "saint" swiftly. JPII broke the record for Newchurch beatifications (1338) and conanizations (482), far more than any other pope, which made him a laughing-stock for his "conanization mill." His crazed actions made him a further laughing-stock as he engaged in numerous outrages against the Catholic Faith, including the following:
It seems that "Catholic" royalty is again deserting the Newchurch of the New Order. On May 17, 2008, Autumn Kelly joined the heretical Anglican sect to marry Peter Phillips, Queen Elizabeth II of England's eldest grandson. Just one week later Marie Cavallier, a French Newchurcher, joined the heretical Lutheran sect to marry Denmark's Prince Joachim, fourth in succession to the Danish throne.
Thousands of Danes made the journey to the village of Moegeltoender to see Marie excommunicate herself, causing scandal as she walked down the aisle of the heretical church the white that once signified the purity of Catholic confessors. Her "husband," Prince Joachim, is a bigamist, as his first wife, whom he married in 1995 and by whom he has two children, now 7 and 5, is still living. He "offed" her in 2004. [Source: AFP]
Our Lady in Heaven must have grieved bitterly as Ave Marias were sung while the bigamist and the excommunicate played kissy-kissy in front of the heretic Lutheran table. And to think that both England and Denmark were once Catholic countries!
The Pro Padre Pio Association announced on May 21, 2008, that is pressing criminal charges against the Newcapuchin friars of San Giovanni Rotondo for desecrating Padre Pio's tomb before the date of his official exhumation in March 2008. The association is referring the Newchurch friars and their governor-friar Aldo Broccato to Italian authorities for criminal prosecution for desecrating a corpse, after a television program revealed on May 20, 2008, that Padre Pio's tomb had been broken into so that the friars could "take a sneak peek" at the corpse.
In March 2008 both the Padre Pio Association and Padre Pio's relatives were vigorously opposed to Newchurch's decision to exhume the padre's corpse. The lawyer for both the association and the family, Francesco Traversi, described the exhumation as "profane" and accused the local Newchurch archbishop, Domenico D'Ambrosio of trying to "re-crucify Padre Pio by putting his remains on display." D'Ambrosio counter-charged that Benedict-Ratzinger's Newvatican had instructed him to let pilgrims ogle at the remains. With Newvatican authorization, RAI Italian television broadcast the grotesque spectacle around the world. Newvatican has now determined that the grotesquerie will continue for six months.
Good Catholics, what is this sacrilege continuing against the saintly Padre Pio? The simple answer is filthy lucre. In May 2008 the Italian business magazine Economy reported that Padre Pio's shrine is big business and has now beaten Lourdes to become the second most lucrative venue for "religious" tourists behind only Newvatican itself. Newchurch's profit from the "viewing" is expected to be some $200,000,000 dollars. Newchurch's reputation, and Benedict-Ratzinger's own personal reputation, have been so besmirched by his Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal that contributions to support the New Order have fallen a trickle.
The Newchurch archdiocese of Boston has announced official that it is closing Holy Trinity Church in Boston's South End neighborhood, the only site of the "Motu" Mess in the archdiocese. The church also offered a Novus Ordo Mess in the vulgar tongue of German. The archdiocese is talking about relocating the "Motu" Mess, but no official action has been taken -- or may ever be.

Shortly after his election as pope in May 2005, Benedict-Ratzinger invited his friend, Hans Kung, whose license to teach theology was revoked for heresy by Paul VI and who thereafter incurred excommunication by becoming a Freemason, to dinner at Castel Gandolfo, the papal summer palace. In a recent interview with La Repubblica, Kung has dissed his host by stating that Benedict-Ratzinger "continues to block every sort of renewal, and is blocking any oecumenical unification with the Protestant and Orthodox churches. This pope has made serious mistakes."
Benedict-Ratzinger should be ashamed of himself for consorting with such outspoken heretics as Kung. He simply got his due comeuppance from the heretic.
Benedict-Ratzinger definitively approved the Statutes of the Neocatechumental Way on May 22, 2008. The Neocatechumenal Way, a "Charismatic" group based in Protestantism, takes "communion" as a pancake, while its sectarians sit around a coffee table. [Source: ACI La Prensa]

The latest hoax perpetrated by Benedict-Ratzinger was the handing out of the invalid Novus Ordo cookie to four dozen people on the feast of Corpus Christi. The papal spokesman was quick to comment that the "gesture" at the May 22, 2008, Mess at St. John Lateran Basilica "does not mark a permanent change in papal liturgies." As the pope prepared to hand out the cookie, two ushers placed a kneeler in front of the altar on the basilica steps. The chosen communicants knelt and received the cookie on the tongue, while Benedict-Ratzinger placed the cookies in the hands of the remaining communicants, who were standing. [Source: CNS]
Newchurch archbishop Albert Ranjith, Secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments, contradicted his earlier statements, by confirming that "there are no new norms coming" to require that the Novus Ordo cookie be received kneeling and on the tongue. Thus, Benedict-Ratzinger has confirmed the sacrilegious practice, specifically condemned by Pope Sixtus I in the early second century and his 260 successors over 2000 years. (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.")
Ranjith himself, formerly hailed as "traditional," has turned out to be just another neocon Newchurch liar. Just five months ago, in a preface to a January 2008 book about receiving the Novus Ordo cookie on the tongue while kneeling, Ranjith had said that he thought it was time for Newchurch to reconsider its decision to allow Newchurchers to grab the cookie in their filthy hands. Apparently, this fraud has changed his mind in just five months!
Good Catholics, here we find Benedict-Ratzinger perpetrating another deception upon Newchurchers. Passionist presbyter Ciro Benedettini, assistant director of Newvatican's press office, exposed the Benedictine hypocrisy, revealing that Benedict-Ratzinger was simply "alternating the old and new to indicate continuity with the past." Benedettini failed to explain how using a sacrilegious practice condemned by some 260 popes was "indicating continuity with the past"!
I came across your article on praying the Divine Office. I have been praying the Divine Office for 44 years. I believe that I have prayed better during these 44 years than I did when we prayed the traditional Breviary in Latin when I was in the seminary.
The Fathers Reply.
First of all, you weren't praying the Divine Office. You were prattling the Novus Ordo "Liturgy of the Hours," a destruction of the Church's official prayer authored by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini and his committee of six Protestant ministers. Bugnini's destruction of the Traditional Latin Mass was bad, but even worse was his implementation of the Protestant "Liturgy of the Hours."
If you were having problems with your Latin, we wonder why you didn't study it further. We can hardly imagine that anyone who got the required 7-9 years of Latin in seminary as required by John XXIII would have the kind of trouble that you are describing. The Cure of Ars, St. John Vianney, when he had a problem similar to yours, worked all the harder on his Latin. He didn't sell to a bogus Protestant knock-off in highly defective vulgar "translations."
But most of all, we are saddened that you deprived yourself of the beautiful meaning and sonority of the Church's Divine Office, in the Latin of St. Jerome and the other Great Fathers of the Church, of which Bugnini's Protestant "Liturgy of the Hours" is not even a pale reflection.
The Newchurch archbishop of New York, Edward Egan, was going to demolish traditional St. Brigid Church, an historic Lower East Side New York church, which has stood since 1848. In fact, the barbarian archbishop had already instructed his wrecking crew to smash the historic stained-glass windows before a New York State Supreme Court Justice issued -- just in a nick of time to save the church -- a restraining order on the Novus Ordo archbishop in August 2006.
On May 21, 2008, the Newchurch archdiocese of New York announced that an anonymous donor had come forward with $10,000,000 to restore the church, $2,000,000 to establish an endowment for the Newparish, and $8,000,000 to support the school and other Newchurch schools. [Source: The Times]
The problem is that no indication has been made that the donor placed any restrictions on the donation to ensure that Egan, who is known as the Great Destroyer of Churches, or his New Order successors, will be forced to follow the intent of the donation. Apparently, this anonymous donor is not familiar with the case of St. Stanislaus Kostka in St. Louis, Missouri, whose current Newchurch archbishop, Raymond Burke, attempted to steal it back to pay for sex crimes. Moreover, no restriction was announced that the donor demanded that St. Brigid not be "Novus Ordoized." He is apparently unfamiliar with the "wreckovations" that so many traditional churches have endured at the hands of these Newchurch barbarian bishops.
It appears that the Newchurchers have much more to "live and learn" before their blinded eyes will be opened to the devastation of the New Order.
It is laughable how certain Newchurch bishops are called "conservative" or even "traditional" by the Neocon Newchurchers. One of their favorites is Raymond Burke, Newchurch archbishop of St. Louis, Missouri, who "consecrated" a surgically-transgendered man as a Newchurch nun, vehemently covered up numerous sex crimes in his former Newchurch diocese of LaCrosse, Wisconsin, and even tried to steal $12,000,000 from a neocon church to pay off for sex crimes. In order to conceal his Modernism, Burke has added a "conservative" veneer to his Novus Ordo liturgies: a little Latin, for example, or somewhat more "conservative" vestments at the Novus Ordo "Liturgy of the Hours," a Protestantized version by Hannibal Bugnini and his committee of six Protestant ministers to replace in the Novus Ordo the traditional Divine Office.
On May 24, 2008, Burke will install as presbyter "presiders over the assembly of the people" (the Novus Ordo does not ordain to traditional Holy Orders) nine men, the largest gaggle of Novus Ordo presbyters in 25 years and the largest in the United States. That's certainly not saying much, when the Novus Ordo presbyterate is falling precipitously. The number of diocesan presbyters in the United States has declined 22 per cent since 1965, according to the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate at Newchurch's Georgetown University. In the same period, the number of graduate level Novus Ordo seminarians has fallen 60 per cent. [Source: St. Louis Post Dispatch]
One Newchurch study found that 80% of Newchurch parents didn't want their children to become Novus Ordo presbyters. To the contrary, Catholic parents before Vatican II viewed their childrens' entrance into religion as (traditional) priests, brothers, or sisters as a source of holy pride. Traditionally, the linen that binds the hands of a traditional priest after their anointing "to offer Mass for the living and the dead" are buried with the priest's mother as a testament to the household of the Catholic Faith from which the new priest came.
With Burke, of course, no one knows when, in addition to the Novus Ordo presbyters, he will "consecrate" another transsexual.
Despite a recent letter of "clarification" from Newcardinal Tarcisio Bertone, Newvatican Secretary of State, approved personally by Benedict-Ratzinger, "gays" can be installed as Novus Ordo "transitional" deacons if they stay on the wagon for a mere three years. "Transitional" deacons, as contrasted with lay deacons, are those who are slated to be installed as Novus Ordo presbyters.
This provision is contained in the papal Congregation for Catholic Education's November 4, 2005, 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. Bertone's letter stated that Newchurch is "profoundly respecting the persons in question."
According to Religious Trends, a comprehensive statistical analysis of religious practice in Great Britain published by Christian Research, Newchurch within a generation will become financially unviable. Funds from the Newchurch collection plate to support the New Order will force church closures.
Mohammedans will meanwhile take over in Great Britain. Actively-religious Mohammedans will increase from 1,000,000 today will double by 2035 and treble by 2050. Meanwhile, even Hindus will outstrip the number of Christians and will double from today's 400,000 to 855,000. [Source: London Times]
Shame on the Latin Mass Society (no specification of which "Latin Mass" that is) of England & Wales for playing footsie with Newchurch! It arranged to have Benedict-Ratzinger's spurious "Motu" Mess of 1962-2007-2008 simulated at Cardiff Cathedral in Wales, which has been reconstructed to suit the Novus Ordo Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service. And, true to form, Newchurch stiffed the Motarians.
In late 2007, the dean of the Newchurch cathedral agreed to a request from the LMS for a "Motu" Mess to be simulated one Sunday in the cathedral. When the LMS representative learned that one of the servers would be a female, which the canon had arranged according to Newchurch practice, he canceled the Mess in a conniption fit. The Newchurch archbishop of Wales, Peter Smith, upheld the canon's arrangements.
The LMS should have known better than to deal with the New Order and not to have expected that Newchurch would do what it always does according to the New Order. The LMS should have learned from the experience of the former president of Una Voce International, Michael Davies (1936-2004), once a noted traditional author. Davies thought that he could successfully "negotiate" with Newrome about the "Indult" Mass. For over a decade, he schmoozed with Newcardinals Joseph Ratzinger and Dario Hoyos. They led Davies on a merry wild-goose chase to the point that when Davies resigned his Una Voce presidency, he wrote a stinging public criticism of Ratzinger and Hoyos, charging that they had deceived him with soft blandishments and meretricious words and that his entire dealings with them had been a waste of time.
In its Riga, Latvia, Ignatian Retreat, the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) admitted seven Protestant Lutheran laymen, 11 Protestant Lutheran ministers, and even the Lutheran Protestant archbishop of Riga. The retreat was held April 20-25, 2008. Protestant Lutheran pastors were also admitted to a November 2006 retreat in Estonia. Apparently, modern-day oecumenism is at work within the bowels of SSPX. [Source: Kreuz]
A Superior Court judge on May 16, 2008, placed a $10,266,000 lien on the headquarters of the Burlington, Vermont, Newchurch diocese after a jury found that the diocese engaged in the "reckless, negligent supervision" of presbyter Edward Paquette, who was charged with 100 assaults between 1976 and 1978. As a result of this latest verdict against Newchurch in its Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal, the judge wrote in his order that the Newchurch diocese might not have insurance to pay the damage verdict and might try to defraud the successful plaintiff of his rightful judgment. The diocese claimsto have "lost" its insurance policy.
Evidence at the six-day trial showed that the Newchurch diocese of Burlington knew Paquette had assaulted children at Newparishes in Massachusetts and Indiana before hiring him 1972, then chose to keep him on as a presbyter after he was accused of assaulting children in 1974-1976 while serving as a Newparish presbyter in Rutland, Vermont. The jury awarded the plaintiff $950,000 in compensatory damages, $7,750,000 in punitive damages, and $1,566,000 in interest. The jury's verdict was meant to punish the diocese for its conduct in hiring and retaining Paquette. [Source: Burlington Free Press]
John Marshall, who was adjudged by the court as the "reckless, negligent" served as Newchurch bishop of Burlington from 1972 to 1992 under Paul VI and JPII. He is just another example of the ilk that the conciliar popes hire to be Newchurch bishops serving the New Order. Marshall knowingly hired and supported Paquette, who was known be a sex criminal.
Good Catholics, would you believe that Marshall's successor said about this pimp for Newchurch sex-criminal presbyters, when Marshall died in 1992, he was "a prayerful and holy man ... a strong supporter and advocate for the respect of human life at all stages." Apparently, respect for human life in Newchurch does not include the protection of innocent children from the ravages of criminal Newchurch presbyters. O, what a tangled web Newchurch weaves! No true Catholic can have anything to do with it.
Latin, Gregorian chant, and the "Latin" Mass (Novus Ordo version) is the hottest this thing in religionist circles and the neocon Novus Ordo. Even Protestants are trying to take over the chant field. Move over, traditional Catholics, you are being replaced. Your condemnation of the Novus Ordo is being blunted by the Newchurch of the New Order. A Novus Ordo hybrid is forming and taking center stage. Benedict-Ratzinger is going to smoke you out, and German Limburger cheese is his bait!
The Fathers Reply.
You are correct. Benedict-Ratzinger, always the fox, has attempted to appropriate traditional Catholicism and remake it in Novus Ordo form. The Great "Motu" Mess Hoax was his shrewd deception to undermine traditional Catholicism and its condemnation of the Novus Ordo. The Novus Ordo neocons are buying into this hoax, and the Fellayites of the Society of St. Pius X teeter on the verge of accepting the New Order and its deceptions.
Gregorian chant, which has been dumped by Newchurch since Vatican II, now sees it as a profit center, with various Novus Ordo "Latin" choirs forming. Of course, this is not the true chant, but Bugnini's bastardized Novus Ordo version. (For real, traditional Gregorian chant, click on the TRADITIO Network's Gregorian Chant.)
I recently received a complementary copy of a neocon Newchurch periodical. The May 2008 issue includes an advertisement from the SSPX entitled "Books for the Extraordinary Form." Has the SSPX already adopted the Novus Ordo jargon? Is it now the SSPX's mission to perpetuate a "secondary" liturgical form?
The Fathers Reply.
Apparently. The current SSPX leader, Bernie Fellay, instead of condemning the Great "Motu" Mess Hoax, as Archbishop Lefebvre would have done, put his priest-presbyters under obligation to sing Te Deum to Benedict-Ratzinger for his hoax! The terminology of a Novus Ordo "Ordinary Form" and a Novus Ordo "Tridentine" bastardized "Extraordinary Form" is absolutely unCatholic. It clearly indicates that the invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Novus Ordo version of the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini and his committee of six Protestant ministers trumps the slightly, but not much more conservative "Motu" Mess of 1962-2007-2008. The truth is that neither the Novus Ordo "Ordinary Form" or the Novus Ordo "Motu" Form are the Traditional Latin Mass. Neocon conservatives and SSPX Fellayites who buy into this terminology are simply devoid of a Catholic mentality.
How the New Order is perverting children! Newchurch bishops and presbyters are raping and assaulting them. Now the children are themselves committing sacrileges. At a Newchurch academy in Baltimore, Maryland, it appears that some students may have presumably been using the statue in a grotto of the Blessed Virgin Mary to secrete their drugs for sales and use. Says the Newchurch nun: "This is sacred ground. But they'd kill their mothers for the next fix." [Source: Baltimore Examiner]
Talk about Newchurch's loss of the sacred! The Pittsfield, Massachusetts, Goodwill discovered that someone had dumped a cache of relics of seven Saints, including St. Francis of Assisi, and five Beati at its distribution center. The sacred relics were contained in a reliquary with the official Latin certificate dated one hundred years ago.
The Newchurcher who dumped the relics apparently didn't have enough respect left to give them to a church, but threw them in with a refrigerator that he was leaving at the same time. But, then, what is to be expected from the Newchurch sect, whose papal agents dumped extra "cookies" from JPII's Central Park, New York, Mess into the Hudson River! [Source: Berkshire Eagle]
Isn't it interesting how some people start telling the truth only when they are on the point of death? Newcardinal Vergilio Noe, aged 86, who is failing fast, has now admitted in a virtual deathbed interview that Paul VI's famous "smoke of Satan" statement referred specifically to the Novus Ordo service. Paul VI, who reigned from 1963 to 1978, stunned Newchurch when he stated in a sermon, just two years after the Novus Ordo was implemented worldwide, on June 29, 1972, the Feast of Sts. Peter & Paul, the occasion of the ninth anniversary of his coronation:
We have the impression that through some cracks in the wall the smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God: it is doubt, uncertainty, questioning, dissatisfaction, confrontation.... We thought that after the [Second Vatican] Council a day of sunshine would have dawned for the history of the Church. What dawned, instead, was a day of clouds and storms, of darkness, of searching and uncertainties.
Various interpretations have been placed on the "smoke of Satan" reference, but now the pope's intimate and papal master of ceremonies, Newcardinal Vergilio Noe, has stated in a May 16, 2008, interview that when Paul VI spoke about the "smoke of Satan" entering the Catholic Church, he was referring essentially to the Novus Ordo service, which had been introduced into Newchurch in 1970. For further information, click on FAQ08: What Is the Authority of Vatican II? in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics). On July 7, 2007, Benedict-Ratzinger confirmed that invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service as the "Ordinary" Mess of Newchurch in his Apostolic Letter Summorum pontificum.
Already in an address on December 7, 1968, Paul VI stated that the Church was in a condition of "self-destruction [auto-distruzione] as a result of the fact that the expected "flowering" after Vatican II had not taken place, but instead the Church was destroying herself. Shortly before his death, in an October 13, 1977, address on the Sixtieth Anniversary of the Fatima Apparitions, Paul VI admitted that Satan was fully operative in Newchurch:
The tail of the devil is functioning in the disintegration of the Catholic world. The darkness of Satan has entered and spread throughout the Catholic Church even to its summit. Apostasy, the loss of the faith, is spreading throughout the world and into the highest levels within the Church.
It may well be that when stating that "the darkness of Satan has ... spread even to the summit," Paul VI was speaking of himself, admitting that as pope he had gone to the Devil. In 1970 Paul VI had accepted the New Order service "with pleasure," but two years later he viewed it as the "smoke of Satan." He denounced the service that he admitted had turned presbyters into vainglorious, prideful, and self-centered stage actors rather than anonymous priests of Jesus Christ celebrating a valid Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Noe now laments that it may be too late to restore the "sense of the sacred" into Newchurch, which uses almost exclusively the anything-goes Novus Ordo service. "The smoke of Satan completely pervades the whole Church," he said. [Source: CWN]
The obvious question is why, if Paul VI believed that the Novus Ordo service was the "smoke of Satan," he didn't do anything about it. To be sure, he had certainly placed himself in a difficult position by personally signing all of the liturgical documents created by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini and his committee of six Protestant ministers, with whom the pope was photographed. Maybe Paul VI was too embarrassed by his Modernist sellout to do anything but talk. Maybe he was so far under the thumb of the Modernists by this point that he felt that he was stymied. He had already been cut off by the Modernist curia.
It is certainly true that Paul VI was psychologically troubled. There is strong evidence, essentially confirmed by his friend, Bishop Fulton Sheen, that he was a manic-depressive, so troubled by what he had done to destroy the true Church that in the weeks before his death on August 6, 1978, he wandered about the Apostolic palace screaming, Credo, credo! as if he were trying to prove to his approaching Judge that he was really Catholic.
What is this thing with Newchurch and the pagan Buddhists? Who would ever have thought that the supposed pope of the Catholic Church would be schmoozing with these pagans and encouraging his bishops to do so as well. That is what JPII the Ungreat did, and that is what Benedict-Ratzinger is doing now.
On April 16, 2008, Benedict-Ratzinger urged Thailand's Newchurch bishops to cooperate with the Buddhists out of the "contribution they [the Buddhists] make to the social and cultural life of the Thai people." Buddhism is essentially atheistic, as it makes man his own god. [Source: Bangkok Post]
For years now the Newchurch of the New Order has lavished praise on pagan Buddhism on the occasion of the birthday of Gautama Buddha, the man who started the religion, if such it can be called.
Sounds like something from the National Inquirer, doesn't it? Like the article about cats on Mars. But in this case it was the Director of the Vatican Observatory, Newjesuit Jose Gabriel Funes, speculating in an interview for the semi-official Vatican newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano, on the possibility of life, even of intelligent life, beyond earth. "Why should we not talk about an 'extraterrestrial' brother'?," he said.
Speculation is not fact, of course, and the Church has never come anywhere close to a position on the question of "extraterrestrials," but it does seem that in the last several decades, the Newvatican has had a strange fixation on the question of extraterrestrials. We know that Newchurch is desperately looking for new members, as its own membership is sinking like a rock. Perhaps extraterrestrials could be its new source. It's a wacko idea that seems to fit perfectly with the wacko New Order!
On a more serious side, let us take this opportunity to set to rest the absurd talk of anti-Catholic bigots that the Catholic Church is an enemy of science. When the anti-Catholic atheists of the French Revolution guillotined the great scientist Antoine-Laurent de Lavoisier (1743-1794), the Father of Modern Chemistry, we do not hear the liberalists damning atheism! From antiquity the Catholic Church has always been in the forefront of science. The most brilliant scientists have been Catholic. For more than a millennium, almost the only scientists were Catholic. Moreover, every soul on this planet has undeniably benefitted from Catholic science in a way that they probably don't even know.
When Julius Caesar as Supreme Pontiff implemented the Greek astronomer Sosigenes' calendrical reforms, the Roman calendar was greatly improved and regularized. However, it had a flaw, which by the time of Pope St. Pius V's successor, Pope Gregory XIII (1572-1585), had come to deviate from the solar cycle by about ten days. This error was starting to push the date of Easter noticeably late in the year. In 1582, Pope Gregory issued the Papal Bull Inter gravissimas to correct the situation. Catholic countries immediately switched to the "Gregorian Calendar," but the Protestant countries dragged their feet. However, the pope's Catholic scientists were incontrovertible, and the Protestants eventually came into line, the British Empire, including the United States and Canada, by 1752. The Communists didn't come around until the Russian revolution of 1917.
Just as the Papal Bull Quo primum, canonizing the Traditional Latin Mass in perpetuity, was often overlooked at the front of the Missale Romanum, even most traditional Catholics today are ignorant of the fact that Pope Gregory's calendrical reform also appears in the front of that missal, in the section De Anno et Eius Partibus.
Continuing bimillennial Catholic leadership in science, Pope Leo XIII (1878-1903) refounded in 1891 the Specula Vaticana, or Vatican Observatory, and moved it to a hillside behind the dome of St. Peter's Basilica. The Observatory is one of the oldest astronomical research institutions in the world. In 1935 the observatory was moved 35 kilometres out of Rome to the southeast, the papal summer palace at Castel Gandolfo, to escape the growing atmospheric pollution of Rome. The papal palace was built around 1590 as a villa for Maffeo Barberini, who later became Pope Urban VIII. It was Urban who supported Galileo, and was for some inexplicable reason later attacked by the erratic and egotistical Galileo. 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, "Galileo." In modern times, it was Georges Lemaitre, a priest, who in 1927 deduced from Einstein's equations of general relativity that the universe is expanding and that it therefore began in a Big Bang.
In search of darker skies, the pope's astronomers turned to Arizona in 1981 and founded the Vatican Observatory Research Group in Tucson. Construction of the Mount Graham International Observatory, 3265 metres high in the Colorado National Forest of southeast Arizona, a 3.5-hectare, three-telescope observatory, home of the Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope, began in 1989. There, the Vatican Observatory Research Group operates the 1.8 metre Alice P. Lennon Telescope with its Thomas J. Brannan Astrophysics Facility, known together as the Vatican Advanced Technology Telescope (VATT). Anyone who claims that the Catholic Church has not been, and continues to be, a scientific leader is just daft!
In 2008 the astronomical observatory that has been part of Castel Gandolfo, south of Rome, for more than 75 years is being dismantled. Benedict-Ratzinger wants more room to receive diplomats. The astronomers and their instruments will be removed to a disused convent two kilometres away. The two astronomical domes that crown the roof of the lakeside palace are to remain, to be transformed into museums.
"Gay" presbyter-pastor Arthur Mallinson resigned on May 13, 2008, as pastor of St. Michael the Archangel Church in McKinney, Texas. The new pastor, appointed by the Newchurch archbishop of Dallas, Kevin Ferrell, had placed his photograph on the "gay" Newchurch web site called "St. Sebastian's Angels" as one of "The Boys," so that he could make contact with other "gay" presbyters.
The archdiocese admitted that because of coverage by the TRADITIO Network and other internet sources, it had heard objections from a "small fractiion" of the McKinney Newparishioners, but "many more complaints" from around the United States. [Source: Dallas Morning News]
What did the pope know and when did he know it? This is the question that more and more people are asking after Benedict-Ratzinger refused during his April 2008 junket to the United States to do anything to clean up the crimes committed by his sex-besotted bishops and presbyters.
The United States Federal Appeals Court for the Sixth Circuit in Cincinnati, Ohio, is hearing a motion to compel Benedict-Ratzinger to testify personally about his involvement in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal before his death, which may be near, given his brother's recent reports of his strokes and exhaustion. An application before the High Court seeks to interrogate Benedict-Ratzinger in the ongoing rapes and assaults of children, contending that he is the most knowledgeable person alive about what he and Newchurch knew about the rampant sex crimes.
The motion states: "The passage of time not only raises questions of Pope Benedict XVI's continued availability but also increases the likelihood that his memory of events dating back many years will grow less reliable." The motion is being heard in conjunction with a suit brought by three men charging that Benedict-Ratzinger and his Newvatican orchestrated a cover-up of bishops and presbyters sexually assaulting children in the United States since the time of Vatican II (1962-1965). The High Court is considering giving the suit class-action status, as there are thousands of child-victims nationally.
The suit alleges that before he became pope in 2005, Joseph Ratzinger was prefect of the Congregation of the Doctrine of Faith and directly oversaw reports of sexual assaults by Newchurch bishops and presbyters. The case is likely to end up in the United States Supreme Court. A U.S. Federal District Judge ruled in January 2007 that the three men may pursue their claim that top church officials, including Benedict-Ratzinger, should have warned the public or local authorities of known or suspected sexual assaults of children by bishops and presbyters.
The suit also challenges the constitutionality of the U.S. Foreign Sovereign Immunity Act, which has so far allowed Benedict-Ratzinger and sex criminals whom he has secreted in Newrome, to hide behind the facade of "diplomatic immunity." The suit also charges that the law doesn't apply to Benedict-Newvatican because the latter is essentially not a country, but a religious institution. The United States didn't even recognize the Vatican City State as a country until 1984, eight years after the law went into effect. [Source: Associated Press]
Benedict-Ratzinger tripped and fell flat on his knees as he attempted to sit in the papal throne during a Novus Ordo Mess in St. Peter's Basilica on Pentecost Sunday, May 4, 2008. Benedict-Ratzinger's chief propagandist, Presbyter Federico Lombardi, as always, was quick with a specious explanation, saying that Newpope was feeling "quite well." The lady doth protest too much!
Recently, Benedict-Ratzinger's own brother, Georg, restated for German television the fact that Newpope had had two strokes and a hit on the head that knocked him unconscious while fainted onto a radiator. Georg said that his brother was greatly fatigued after his junket to the United States in April 2008 and had had to cancel his regular weekly audience. Newpope turned 81 during the U.S. junket, which was conducted to shore up dwindling Newchurch attendance and contributions in the United States because of Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal, over which Benedict-Ratzinger has presided since 2001. [Source: CWN]
We shall refrain from making any comments about the metaphorical significance of Benedict-Ratzinger's tripping on his way to the papal throne -- particularly on Pentecost Sunday.
Gene Robinson, the "gay" Episcopalian bishop who lives openly with his lover and has energized the Traditional Episcopalian Movement in opposition, has announced that a "civil union" is not enough for him: he will "wed" his "gay" lover in June 2008.
Robinson's perversions have split the Episcopalian sect, the sect closest to the New Order, which uses modifications of the Episcopalian service as its Novus Ordo rite. Episcopalian churches, and even whole dioceses, have voted to leave the liberalist synod, headed by bishoppess Katherine Jefferts-Schori, and affiliate with traditional bishops. [Source: Catholic]
The liberalist Anglican/Episcopalian Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, is under severe attack by traditionalists of his own sect. However, Benedict-Ratzinger has sent high-level Newchurch representatives to assist his "brother" bishop at the Anglican bishops' upcoming Lambeth Conference. The Traditional Episcopalians are fighters. They have announced plans to retain property and funds that are attached to their churches as they go traditional, while bishoppess Jefferts-Schori is fighting tooth and nail to keep all property and money in the hands of the liberalists.
What is happening in the Anglican/Episcopalian sect is happening in Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch of the New Order as well. The Newchurch bishop of Dallas, Texas, Kevin Ferrell, has appointed an openly "gay" pastor for St. Michael the Archangel Church in McKinney, Texas, a traditional-looking Gothic church, which is anything but traditional inside.
The new pastor, presbyter Arthur Mallinson, had placed his photograph on the "gay" Newchurch web site called "St. Sebastian's Angels" as one of "The Boys," so that he could make contact with other "gay" presbyters. The web site claims to be a "support group" for "gay" religious brothers and clergy of Newchurch.
For too many Sunday mornings to count, Bernie Ward has been bashing the Church of which he was once a presbyter over KGO Radio in San Francisco. Then his blasphemies caught up with him. In December 2007 he was indicted by a federal Grand Jury with trafficking in child pornography, a charge to which he pled guilty on May 8, 2008.
But that is only half the story. Now two students have charged that Ward, when still a Jesuit presbyter and teaching at Cardinal Newman Ursuline high school in Santa Rosa, California, assaulted them in the decade after Vatican II. One of the assaults, both against girls, occurred during the course of a New Order "prayer meeting." Ward, who is morbidly obese, forced himself on the girl, who had enough guts to punch her presbyter-assault in the gut and knock the wind out of him! In fact, self-defense training should be mandatory for all Newchurch school children.
Ward's attorney rejected the girls' charges, of course, but this same attorney had previously claimed that Ward was not trafficking in child pornography, a charge to which Ward has now pleaded guilty. Ward's record opens the question whether the then Newchurch archbishop of San Francisco, John Quinn, still alive, covered up Ward's assaults. In 1979 Ward was suspiciously transferred from Newman with no explanation. [Source: Press Democrat]
Ward faces at least five years in federal penitentiary on the child-pornography crime alone. Perhaps in the penitentiary he can elicit some good ol' traditional-Catholic repentance. Thank God, Ward's blasphemies will no longer be heard over radio.
A lay group organized to monitor the crimes of Newchurch prelates and presbyters has publicly called for prosecution of the Newchurch bishops, who have covered up, as well as aided and abetted, the rape and assault of children by themselves and their presbyters -- and that includes every single bishop in the United States.
Terry McKiernan, President of Bishop Accountability, which meticulously monitors the accusations and crimes of Newchurch bishops and presbyters has called for the prosecution of bishops, who have so far gotten off scot free. "Action has been taken against some priests [Newchurch presbyters], but action hasn't been taken against U.S. bishops," said McKiernan, even though records show that more than twenty U.S. bishops have themselves been involved in sex crimes. All the rest have been involved in complicity and cover-up. Most recently charged is Carlos Sevilla, Newchurch bishop of Yakima, Washington. The previous and the current presidents of the U.S. Conference of Catholic [sic] Bishops, William Skylstad and (Newcardinal) Francis George, are both among those accused in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal. [Source: UPI, Washington Post]
Newchurch's Man-in-Charge, Benedict-Ratzinger, has so far gone unprosecuted for his complicity in sheltering criminal bishops in his bosom at Newrome, where they are protected by him under the guise of "diplomatic immunity." The most signal example is his #3 man, William Levada, formerly archbishop of San Francisco, whom Benedict-Ratzinger absonded to Newrome so that he did not have to answer two federal subpoenas for his involvement in sex crimes in two Newchurch archdioceses in the United States.
It's Watergate all over again. In U.S. President Nixon's administration, the big question was: "Did the President know?" Now the question is: "Did the pope know? Is the pope himself involved in crimes, as Nixon was?" The question has more piquancy as Benedict-Ratzinger's head of Doctrine cum Sex-crimes Czar, William Levada, former Newchurch archbishop of San Francisco, has himself been accused of spiriting a criminal Newchurch bishop out from under the arm of the law.
San Francisco Weekly and the National Catholic Reporter have exposed Levada for engineering the escape of the discredited Santa Rosa, California's Newchurch bishop Patrick Ziemann from criminal prosecution after he admitted sex crimes between himself and one Jorge Sales. In addition, Ziemann left his Newchurch diocese with a $30,000,000 debt. It is unknown how much of that amount escaped in Ziemann's pocket.
Levada assisted Ziemann to escape prosecution after he and other Newchurch officials refused to cooperate with criminal authorities. Ziemann was spirited off to a resort in Arizona. Levada himself was then spirited off by Benedict-Ratzinger to diplomatic immunity in Newrome. At the time everyone wondered why Levada, an insignificant ecclesiastical bureaucrat of no apparent talent, would be selected by Benedict-Ratzinger to head an important Newchurch congregation when Levada was under two federal subpoenas to reveal what he knew about six crimes and embezzlements under his administration. Sex, crime, and cover-up are now revealed as the answer.
Meanwhile, across San Francisco Bay from Levada, in the diocese of Oakland, California, Newchurch bishop John Cummins was admitting in a court deposition that he had colluded with civil authorities to suppress prosecution of his criminal presbyters. Parents of victim children wondered why, when they made complaints to the police, no presbyter was ever prosecuted. Now they know. Cummins admitted "a kind of mutual collaboration" with local authorities, which resulted in his criminal presbyters going scot free. A series of four detailed investigative reports in the locality's Contra Costa Times has also implicated the current Newchurch bishop of Oakland, Allen Vigneron, in the same cover-ups. Vigneron has been exposed as a liar in the investigative reports, who has yet to reveal to Oakland Newchurchers the depth of crime to which he and his presbyters have sunk.
O, what a tangled web Newchurch weaves! Benedict-Ratzinger has exceeded the record of Alexander VI, "the Bad Pope," for rampant crime under his administration, crime that he has aided and abetted by silence, cover-up, and obstruction of justice. Away with this sad excuse for a pope! Good Catholics, pray God for another Pope St. Pius X, for a courageous opponent of Modernism and crime in the Church, not a point who conspires in crimes against children.
When Benedict-Ratzinger arrives in Sydney, Australia, on July 13, 2008, for his World Youth Day rave, he will confront face to face the devastation that aiding and abetting the Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal has produced. "The scale of abuse in Australia has been far greater than in the U.S," said Dr. Wayne Chamley, a spokesman for a victims group. "There are tens of thousands of victims from Catholic [sic]-run institutions who were denied education. They were used as slaves. They were sexually and physically abused.... If the Catholic church were a private company these bishops wouldn't have a job."
Hundreds of Newchurch clergy, bishops and presbyters alike, have been accused of abusing children in their care, with the crimes being covered up by Newchurch prelates in Australia and Newrome. In Australia, which has only half the population of the single state of California in the United States, Newchurch has been forced to respond to more than 1000 claims of assault against children and the mentally-retarded. One damage payment of $3,600,000 was made to 24 mentally-retarded men who were abused in Newchurch "care" facilities. Australian Newchurch officials have been accused in the assault scandal.

The Newchurch is desperate for poster-boys for the New Order, so it has not refrained from trying to reinvent history to portray traditional Catholics as devotees of the New Order. The most despicable cases of these historical lies concerns Padre Pio, a solidly-traditional figure, who is admired by many, even in Newchurch.
The first lie that New Order minions circulated claimed that Padre Pio simulated the Novus Ordo service, even though Padre Pio died a year before the Novus Ordo of 1969 was even issued! 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, "Padre Pio."
More recently, the author of a pot-boiler on Padre Pio has resuscitated an old lie on the part of the New Order to discredit the traditional archbishop. Fortunately, on August 8, 1990, the Archbishop himself left us his personal description of his meeting with Padre Pio. These TRADITIO Commentaries have previously reported on this meeting, but, as the New Order has resuscitated the old lie, we are reproducing the Archbishop's own description herewith:
The meeting, which took place after Easter in 1967, lasted two minutes. [In 1967 the Archbishop was Superior General of the Congregation of the Holy Ghost.] I was accompanied by Fr. Barbara and a Holy Ghost Brother, Brother Felin. I met Padre Pio in a corridor, on his way to the confessional, being helped by two Capuchins. I told him in a few words the purpose of my visit: for him to bless the Congregation of the Holy Ghost, which was due to hold an extraordinary General Chapter meeting, like all religious societies, under the heading of "aggiornamento" [the term that was used at Vatican II for taking the Church down the path of Modernism], a meeting that I was afraid would lead to trouble. Then Padre Pio cried out: "Me bless an archbishop? No, no, it is you who should be blessing me!" And he bowed to receive the blessing. I blessed him; he kissed my ring and continued on his way to the confessional. That was the whole of the meeting, no more, no less.
Of course, it makes no difference what Padre Pio did or didn't do. It is just revealing that certain Newchurchers find it necessary to tell two big lies about him to make it seems that he embraced the New Order, when just the opposite was true. Apparently, Newchurchers are so desperate to get some kind of confirmation for their invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Novus Ordo service that they are willing to tell outright lies. As we Fathers have said many times before, one has to be completely naive to trust any words emanating from Newchurch. They are all merely propaganda for the New Order.
You remember Raymond "Bully" Burke, the Newchurch archbishop of St. Louis, Missouri. The man who consecrated a tranvestite "nun." The man who attempted to steal a $12,000,000 church to pay off for sex crimes. The man who sheltered criminal presbyters in La Crosse, Wisconsin, then in 2004 moved his operation to St. Louis. On May 6, 2008, that corrupt prelate was fingered by Benedict-Ratzinger not for censure, but for membership on the Pontifical Council for the Interpretation of Legislative Texts and the Congregation for the Clergy. Since the latter group has some authority over the Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal, Burke's appointment is like appointing the fox to watch over the hen-house! [Source: St. Louis Post Dispatch]
Good Catholics, you may well ask why Benedict-Ratzinger surrounds himself with New Order prelates who are no better than criminals. His #3 guy, for instance, is William Levada, formerly Newchurch archbishop of San Francisco, whom Benedict-Ratzinger spirited off to Newvatican's diplomatic immunity out from under United States federal subpoenas in two jurisdictions for an investigation into his sex-crime trail from Portland, Oregon, to San Francisco, California, with a bankruptcy thrown in for good measure. Well, what can we say but "birds of a feather flock together."
Those who have studied Gregorian chant are probably familiar with the name of Mary Berry, who died on May 1, 2008, at the age of 90. Berry was a musicologist and don of the University of Cambridge, where she founded the Schola Gregoriana in 1975. Mary Berry had been greatly influential in reviving Gregorian chant in Britain and abroad. In 1938 she converted from Anglicanism to Catholicism and in 1940 joined the Augustinians as a nun and made her final profession in 1945, becoming Mother Thomas More.
In the 1950s the classical-music world was blessed by the "Authentic Music" Movement, which fostered the performance of early music (Baroque and before) on original instruments. Thus, instead of Bach being played on clumsy modern pianos, the lithe harpsichord was heard once again, and the music of Bach and other early-music composers took on new life. Gregorian chant too benefited from the "Authentic Music" Movement, but that blessing was prematurely cut off by the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965), whose "heritage" was the replacement of the Sacred Chant and Sacred Polyphony by pop ditties like "Kumbaya."
Berry began her studies for a doctorate in musicology at Cambridge in 1963 under the famed leader of the Movement, Thurston Dart. Unfortunately, the mid 1960s was the period of devastation in the Catholic Church under the aegis of Vatican II and the Freemason "liturgist" Hannibal Bugnini. A year after Berry received her doctorate, the Novus Ordo of 1969 was sprung upon the Church, which from this point had become the Newchurch of the New Order. (For further information, click on the TRADITIO Network's Traditional Latin Mass, Divine Office & Sacraments department in the section "The Road into the Black Hole of the Liturgical 'New Order.'")
Berry was caught on the horns of a dilemma. Should she get away from the New Order and pursue her work to further the Sacred Chant, or should she remain with the New Order and compromise her work? Like all too many of that decade and ours, she gave up her traditional religious name, Mother Thomas More, and chose to sell out and prostitute her talents to the service of the New Order. There is little doubt what Thomas More would have said of her -- the Saint who chose martyrdom over sellout to the New Order of his day.

We also highly recommend there the CD series "A Traditional Chapel Sings Gregorian Chant." Every traditional Catholic should become familiar with this traditional music of the Church, which is being issued by the long-established fully-traditional St. John Schola of San Francisco.
Criminals used to respect the sanctity of a Catholic church, but with the advent of the New Order, even the criminals apparently consider Novus Ordo churches as just ordinary buildings. It is reported that more than 20 churches across Sydney have had a spate of robberies in recent months. The latest Novus Ordo church to be raided, St. Thomas More, was broken into in April 2008 and had its poor boxes emptied. The break-in came after vandals had attacked the church several times, even stripping copper pipes from the building. [Source: Australia News]
Presbyter Peter Lynch said, "It's a place of worship; it's a sacred place. Churches were always considered places of sanctity and worship and now they can be attacked as crime targets." We beg to differ, presbyter. You have turned your church from a sacred place into some New Order meeting hall. You have invalidated the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass into some pagan Novus Ordo service. No wonder even the criminals don't respect your bastardized building!
Actually, in a perverted way, the Newchurch of the New Order, has welcomed this development as an excuse to slam shut the doors of churches during the day so that the Newchurchers can't visit and pray. Even Newcardinal Ratzinger supported this move in a scandalous passage in a book of his, in which he discouraged visits to churches. Why not? The Most Blessed Sacrament is not reserved there. If anything, only the phony Novus Ordo Cookie, relegated to a closet.
I agree with your criticism on the Novus Ordo unCatholic system. I was an associated priest of the SSPX Transalpine Redemptorists. I left them because of their hypocrisy. For several years I saw their position from the inside. They are very sly and betrayed sincere, but naive souls. They are 100% unCatholic.
When they started to construct their monastery on Papa Stronsay in Scotland, their main idea was to construct not a monastery, but a northeast tourist center. Now they totally go under the heretical New Order because they hope to obtain money from Newchurchers to realize their maniacal idea. They are no Catholic monastery because they are unCatholic.
I have provided TRADITIO readers an exclusive, no-holds-barred analysis of Benedict-Ratzinger's "Baseball" Messes and the delusion of neocon Newchurchers who are deluded into thinking that he is "traditional." For further information, click on Benedict-Ratzinger and His Deluded Newchurcher Friends: They Deserve Each Other in the TRADITIO Network's Special Features department.
Neocon Newchurch talking-heads are too much in the pocket of the New Order to tell you the truth, but the TRADITIO Network has in several Commentaries exposed Benedict-Ratzinger's support of homosexuality. Certainly his refusal since 2001 to do anything concrete about the Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal, which involves mostly his "gay" presbyters, reeks of his support. His document allowing "gays" to enter his New Order seminaries after three years reeks of his support. Now we have yet another piece of evidence of Benedict-Ratzinger's pro-"gay" policy: his support of the heretic archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams, who is facing the mass exodus of traditional Anglicans because he supports "gay" ordinations and consecrations.
Williams's bosom-buddy, Benedict-Ratzinger, announced on May 5, 2008, just ahead of the decennial Lambeth Conference of Anglican Bishops to be held during the summer of 2008, is sending the Newvatican marines to Rowan's rescue. The 2008 Lambeth Conference is expected to see the Anglican Church rent between liberalists, who favor "gay" bishops, and the traditional Anglicans, who are fed up with Rowan's unChristian liberalist morality foisted upon them. These traditional bishops plan a separate conference in Jordan and Jerusalem, there to separate from Rowan and his liberalist Anglicans in order to maintain traditional Anglicanism.
You would think that Benedict-Ratzinger would be on the side of the traditional Anglicans, but no. In a shocking volte-face, he is supporting the "gay" faction in the Anglican clergy! He has determined that Cardinal Ivan Dias, the prefect of Newchurch's Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples, would speak at the heretical Lambeth Conference. Newcardinal Walter "Oecumenical-Friendly Ghost" Kaspar, prefect of Benedict-Ratzinger's own Pontifical Council, or a pontifical deputy, is expected to attend as well.
A Newvatican analyst at Newrome's Gregorian University, presbyter Keith Pecklers, stated: "Cardinal Kasper might be expected to attend, given his role, but Cardinal Dias's presence is proof that the [New]vatican wants to be supportive of Williams. The message is 'We're in this together and we are oecumenical partners." Williams and Benedict-Ratzinger are said to have forged a "warm relationship." Hmmm. [Source: The Guardian]
Benedict-Ratzinger's Congregation for the Clergy has publicly opened further argument for the invalidity of the Novus Ordo service as it confirmed that valid form is not sufficient, that there must be valid intention as well. The case in point is an April 5, 2008, directive that Newchurch dioceses should not provide baptismal records to the Mormons' Genealogical Society of Utah for spurious "baptisms of the dead." According to a 2001 declaration of Benedict-Ratzinger himself as prefect of Newvatican's Doctrine of the Faith, Mormon baptisms are not valid because, although Mormons use the valid Trinitarian formula for baptism, they do not believe in the Trinity and thus lack valid intention.
Thus, certain neocon Newchurchers who breathed a sign of relief when Newvatican announced that in the Novus Ordo service "for many" would purportedly be changed to "for all" are all wet, according to Benedict-Ratzinger. In fact, during his own Messes simulated in the United States on his April 2008 junket, Benedict-Ratzinger spurned his own directive and consistently used the heretical "for all" form. The directive was apparently just Newvatican's usual window dressing to mislead the Newchurchers and has de facto been rescinded by Benedict-Ratzinger's own action. [Source: Catholic News Service]
No such "technical" change, even if it were to be implemented, is sufficient to correct the invalidity of the Novus Ordo service. The Catholic teaching is best formulated in Pope Leo XIII's Apostolic Letter Apostolicae Curae, which declared the Anglican service invalid, and that 1896 service was far closer traditional Catholic Mass than the Freemason Hannibal Bugnini's 1969 Novus Ordo service. For further information, click on CURAE.TXT: Apostolic Letter Apostolicae Curae [On the Nullity of Anglican Orders], Given by His Holiness Pope Leo XIII in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics).
Our family recently left the SSPX since it insists that Bugnini's Modernized Mess, contemporary with Vatican II, is valid. When we brought up our objections with SSPX officials, we were given only hostility. We were told bluntly: "Leave it up to the bishops and the priests; trust them, they know what's right!" But isn't that just what the Modernist priests and bishops said at Vatican II to usher in the Novus Ordo? That's why we stopped attending and supporting the SSPX. It's contradictory. Its logic is flawed.
The Fathers Reply.
Yours is just one of numerous similar reports that we have received about the SSPX around the world. Apparently, Bernie Fellay's administration has broken ranks with Archbishop Lefebvre's principles and decided that that hostility is the proper response to his own members who ask Fellay perfectly reasonable questions about his pro-Novus Ordo administration.
SSPX members ask Fellay he supports the "Motu" Mess of 1962-2007-2008 and get only hostility in return. They ask why he supports the Freemason Hannibal Bugnini's New Ordinal of 1968, which is based in the heretical and invalid Anglican Ordinal, and get only hostility in return. They ask why he is using Novus Ordo presbyters instead of traditional priests at several SSPX sites and get only hostility in return.
SSPX members do not get answers to their legitimate questions, but only fulminating hostility from Fellay and his administration. Many SSPXers, such as your family, are fed up with his baseless autocracy and are leaving his SSPX ship, which is he is steering right onto the Newchurch shoals. Until the SSPX gets truly traditional and competent leadership and dumps "Blustering" Bernie, SSPX members will not protest, simply leave his sinking ship.
When we questioned our SSPX pastor about why the SSPX celebrates only Bugnini's Modernized Mass of 1962, he replied that the Church has had "more rites than you can imagine" and said that in the early days of the Church, the Mass included a "Kiss of Peace," when the congregation hugged and kissed each other on the lips! He also said that at the Last Supper, Christ was speaking Aramaic, so the words were different from the Roman Missal anyway. This is confusing. Is any of this true, or is this more SSPX obfuscation?
The Fathers Reply.
That SSPX pastor sounds as if he has gone over to the New Order already! His answer is a half-truth at best, definitely an obfuscation. According to Catholic Tradition, the Traditional Latin Mass in all its essentials was passed on by St. Peter, the first pope, to the Church. The Apostles themselves, according to St. Ambrose, worked at its elaboration. It reached its complete perfection with Popes St. Damasus (fourth century) and St. Gregory the Great (sixth century).
As the great liturgical scholar, Fr. Adrian Fortescue, wrote, this Mass is "the most venerable in all Christendom, with a history of unbroken use far longer than that of any Eastern rite, there being no doubt that the essential parts of the Mass are of Apostolic origin." In the West, the Roman Rite was always the precedential rite, as it was the rite of the Apostolic See. In the East, there were a few more rites, principally in the Greek of the Bible.

One still hears the discredited "Aramaic" argument from the New Order sectarians, but the noted Novus Ordo liturgical scholar, Msgr. Klaus Gamber, in his Reform of the Roman Liturgy himself demonstrates that it is spurious. Even the Jews did not use their vernacular (Aramaic since their return from the Babylonian Captivity) in the Temple, but Hebrew, which was then a sacred language, as Latin is for us (and Biblical Greek for the East).

What language(s) Christ spoke is a matter of debate. He would certainly have known the vulgar tongue of Aramaic and the (by His time) Sacred Language of Hebrew. Recent archaeological evidence indicates that Nazareth was a few kilometres' journey to what was known as a "Greek city," and Greek was the lingua franca of the Eastern part of the Roman Empire. Moreover, director Mel Gibson may have been perfectly correct in having Christ and Pilate speaking together in Latin. The presence of the Roman administration in Judaea had already gone on for several decades, and the Romans disdained any language but Latin for official purposes. In the end, however, what language(s) Christ happened to have spoken is irrelevant. Unless this SSPX pastor wants to deny Catholic Tradition, the hand of Providence placed the Apostolic See in Rome, not in Antioch, where the See had previously been. Therefore, the Mass has come to the world in the language of that See, Latin.
As to the "Kiss of Peace," this exists even to the present day at a Solemn Mass. It has been, however, not some pagan smooching, but a highly stylized barely touching of cheeks. Moreover, this has not been some puckering-up between laypeople, but a liturgical action, the Osculum pacis, amongst the clergy only.
Along with the invalidating changes that it introduced into the Mass and Sacraments, the New Order invalidated the Sacramentals, such as Holy Water, as well. The blessing of Holy Water, which Catholics use in church and at home, no longer includes the exorcism. After all, Newchurch doesn't like to speak of the Devil or Hell. It preaches salvation "for all," and the abolition of Limbo and Purgatory. No wonder that the likes of Gianni Versaci and Sony Bono are automatically given "white" funerals and assigned places in Newchurch Heaven!
Well, this story isn't about Holy Water, but Newchurch's commercialization of the sacred. If we remember our Bible correctly, Simon Magus, who gave his name to the sacrilege of simony, the sale of spiritual things, was roundly condemned for this sacrilege by St. Peter. Now it seems now that Newchurch has gotten a presbyter to "bless" commercial water in a warehouse for people to drink. Naturally, Newchurch gets a 10 per cent "blasphemy cut."
To delude the Newchurchers into sacrilege, the simonist Elicko Taieb lard up the half-litre bottles of what is essentially tap water available from any kitchen sink with images of not only the Saints, but even Our Lord Himself. "Spiritual Water" thus joins other simonistic products, such as Testamint (with Bible verses printed in the wrapper, so that you can throw them away after consuming) and Bible Gum (so that you can "chew your way to spiritual enlightenment"). And the deluded Newchurchers are falling for it, to the tune of 15,000 bottles so far. [Source: Miami Herald]
In answer to those who call this enterprise simony, Taieb says that his water is sold "with the best intentions." Well, as Samuel Johnson wrote: "Hell is paved with good intentions."
Could it be that the 1962 Missal is not efficacious and does not emit grace? This missal was in universal use during the Second Vatican Council (1962-65), but its usage did not prevent the catastrophe. Apart from numerous significant rubrical changes, John XXIII, most importantly, tampered with the ancient Good Friday prayers and the sacrosanct Catholic and Apostolic Canon, which goes to essential form. This was a breach of the irreformable and perpetual Solemn Papal Bull, Quo Primum, as a result of which Heaven spurns this Mess.
SSPX Bishop Williamson had this to say about "moderates":
But, as in 1789, the moderates were, and remain, destroyers still. Woe, then, to churchmen of today who would try to blend with these "moderates"! They risk adding themselves on to the end of a 500-year list of hypocritical traitors, however well-meaning!
Is Bishop Williamson, in comparing the priest-sellouts during the anti-Catholic French Revolution, trying to tell us something about Benedict-Ratzinger and those who compromise with the Vatican II "moderates," what you call neo-con Newchurchers or Motarians? It sure looks like it.
In our SSPX chapel this past Sunday, our priest said that anyone in the congregation who believed Benedict-Ratzinger was not the true pope, i.e., those who supported the sede-vacantist position, were hypocrites and should not attend Mass there. But aren't Bernie Fellay and his "moderate" cronies in the current leadership of the SSPX the real hypocrites? They pronounce for Benedict-Ratzinger and fulminate against those who have doubts about the Conciliar popes (doesn't any true Catholic have serious doubts?), but they ignore him de facto. Isn't it time for Fellay to pronounce once and for all the SSPX's complete independence from the New Order, as his founder and consecrator, Archbishop Lefebvre, did?
The London Times has reported that Autumn Kelly, 31, who is engaged to marry Peter Phillips, Queen Elizabeth II's eldest grandson, on May 17, 2008, renounced her membership in the Newchurch of the New Order and "was welcomed in to the Church of England some time ago." She took the action of her own accord and was not pressured by the palace.
The Act of Settlement of 1701 prohibits royal heirs from marrying Catholics. However, Phillips is such a distant candidate, the eleventh in the line of royal succession, that he could easily have given up his candidacy to marry a Newchurcher. By the way, what happened to "oecumenism" in England? Why isn't Benedict-Ratzinger screaming about anti-Catholic bigotry in England?
The editor-in-chief of Newvatican's newspaper L'Osservatore Romano is having a conniption fit that Benedict-Ratzinger was left off Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People List, either of "Leaders & Revolutionaries" or of "Heroes & Pioneers." Apparently, Newpope just doesn't have it, even after his six-day P.R. junket to the United States, although the pagan Dalai Lama and the schismatic Oecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew made the list.
Giovanni Maria Vian was quoted as saying that Benedict-Ratzinger's exclusion from the list was a "disconcerting decision." Newvatican is embarrassed about the omission, so its spokesman, presbyter Federico Lombardi, is trying to make the decision out to be nothing, even after Newvatican's huge expenditures in April 2008 to make Benedict-Ratzinger into the newest U.S. "pop star."
Isn't Newchurch ridiculous? It just can't seem to get its "rules" straight. The latest scandal involves former New York mayor Rudolph Giuliani, who ate the Novus Ordo cookie during Benedict-Ratzinger's April 20, 2008 "Baseball" Mess. Now Edward Egan, Newchurch cardinal of New York, claims that Giuliani violated a secret agreement with him that he not eat the cookie because Giuliani had a "pro-choice" position.
But now the Newchurchers are arguing with each other about the rationale. Giuliani is now a private citizen, so his opinions are no longer those of a public official. On the other hand, Giuliani is living in a state of public sin with a woman who is not his wife, he having been married twice before.
Anyway, why should the Newcardinal of New York have a "secret" agreement with Giuliani? When Giuliani was mayor, his position was a public matter. His living in sin with a woman to whom he is not married is also a public matter. What's the secret, Edward? Obviously, you didn't want to take a public position on something that is supposedly a doctrine even in your Newchurch!
Benedict-Ratzinger has called the Koran of the Mohammedans "dear" and "precious" in spite of the fact that it is virulently anti-Christian. Newpope's comments were made after he officially received a copy of the Koran from Mahdi Mostafavi, a representative of the radical Mohammedan regime of Iran. Benedict-Ratzinger cannot be ignorant of the erroneous nature of this book, which has been condemned by every pre-Conciliar pope commenting on it, as he tried to "nuance" the Church's condemnation of it by taking a "holistic view" of the texts, and not "selective interpretations of text taken from their holy books."
Already on his U.S. junket, Benedict-Ratzinger had received a presentation copy of the Koran during the "interfaith meeting" at the JPII Cultural Center. This Newpope seems to appreciate the Mohammedan Koran more than the Christian Bible. By now he surely must have more copies of the Koran than of the Latin Vulgate in his library!
JPII had already scandalized the Catholic world when, on June 1, 1999, at the end of an audience, he bowed to the Mohammedan Koran and kissed it. The photo of that action has been shown repeatedly on Iraqi television for Mohammedan propaganda purposes. No wonder Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre called Newcardinal Ratzinger "not a Catholic"!
The Scots broke away from Catholicism once to go into heresy. Are the Society of St. Pius X's Scottish Redemptorists on Papa Stronsay Island going into heresy too? For several months, the Transalpine Redemptorists of Orkney have been making favorable noises about going over to the New Order sect. The group has issued a public statement that if the New Order "authorities" are willing to "recognize" them, they will go over to the New Order sect. The group has already withdrawn its seminarians from the SSPX seminary in Australia. It is interesting that this SSPX group has, in the last several months, gone on a fund-raising binge, perhaps to deceive traditional Catholics into filling its coffers before the group "goes New Order"?
One report even states that the four SSPX bishops have been called to an emergency meeting in Econe, Switzerland, on May 5, 2008. The SSPX is still schizophrenic about its relationship to the New Order sect. Bernie Fellay's SSPX still seems to be willing to sell out to the New Order in exchange for "unexcommunication," even if such "unexcommunication" comes at the price of denying the Roman Catholic Faith and accepting the New Order sect. Fellay should learn well from the situation of the Eastern Orthodox, who have been "un-excommunicated" since 1965 by Paul VI, and the Easterners still don't even have a shared "eucharist" with Newchurch these forty years later! Quidquid id est, timeo Danaos et dona ferentes!
France's largest morning daily, Le Figaro, has reported on April 26, 2008, that Benedict-Ratzinger's health is failing. His brother, presbyter Georg Ratzinger, has said the same to several German media outlets recently. On April 24, 2008, in an interview with the German television station TDF, Georg confirmed, as previously reported by the TRADITIO Network, that his brother had suffered two strokes. Newpope has told the cardinals that his will be a "short reign." Newvatican, of course, has denied the reports, which is tantamount to acknowledging their veracity.
Le Figaro pointed to Benedict-Ratzinger's obvious fatigue during his "Opera" Mess in St. Patrick's Cathedral, New York, on April 19, 2008. He was so compromised that after the ceremony he had to be helped by aides so as not to trip. Newpope also had to cancel his general audience on the Wednesday following his United States junket because of fatigue.
Lost among all the staged hoopla for Benedict-Ratzinger's April 2008 public-relations junket to the United States to get the American Newchurch to resume contributing to Newvatican coffers in the midst of Newpope's Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal, is an April 22, 2008, op-ed piece entitled Father Ratzinger Cannot Be Pope, published by the Newspaper Network of Central Ohio, which publicly questioned Benedict-Ratzinger's status as pope. This is certainly not the first time the issue has been raised that Benedict-Ratzinger was never consecrated as a bishop in the certainly valid traditional rite. He was merely "installed" in the New Order rite of the Freemason Hannibal Bugnini and his Committee of Six Protestant Ministers. The article stated:
Benedict XVI arrived in the United States last week to the accolades of everyone, Catholic or not. I am in the minority who can find no reason to celebrate him. He is one of the architects of the worst catastrophe that has ever rocked the Roman Catholic Church, Vatican II. He was the one who helped craft the heresy of religious liberty that came from the [Vatican II] Council.
I practice my Catholic faith as if I were under the papacy of Pope Pius XII. For almost 2,000 years it was a sin and liturgical crime, punished by excommunication, to worship with non-Catholics. Benedict prayed in the Blue Mosque in Turkey, facing Mecca and using a Mohammedan prayer stance. This is a sign of apostasy. Under him, Catholics are allowed to believe things that the Church has always condemned. They can openly support abortion in the pews as well as in Congress. They can actively support homosexuality, as they do at Most Holy Redeemer Church, in the Castro Street district in San Francisco.
He helped wreck the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, only to allow a modernized version of it as an "extraordinary rite," with the sacrilegious Modern Mass being the norm. It is a maxim that "one cannot be head of which one in not a member." It is a law of the Roman Catholic Church that a heretic cannot be elected pope (the law was made by Pope Paul IV). Because of this law, Father Joseph Ratzinger cannot be pope.
Good Catholics, the word is finally getting out that there are indeed many questions to be answered in the strange case of Benedict-Ratzinger.
It seems that the "Motu" Mess of 1962-2007-2008 is leading some people to believe that Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch is going to go traditional, or at least conservative. That belief is anathema, so the papal liturgist for twenty years, Archbishop Piero Marini, was sent on April 25, 2008, to issue a statement in Osservatore Romano that the "liturgical renewal launched by the Second Vatican Council is on an 'irreversible path" and is in no way compromised by the "Motu" Mess.
This papal statement comes on the heels of the announcement that Newcardinal Dario Hoyos' Ecclesia Dei Commission has bound the Motarians to accept the Novus Ordo calendar for "Motu" Messes.
Traditional Catholic producer/director Mel Gibson will return to the role of actor as he takes the lead role in Edge of Darkness, a thriller based on a 1985 BBC miniseries. His role as a straitlaced policeman who uncovers corruption in "the system" will return Gibson to the hero role that he played so well in The Patriot and Braveheart (1995), which won him five Oscars.
Gibson has long been a fan of the miniseries and was receptive when producer Graham King and director Martin Campbell approached him several months ago. Shooting on the independently-financed project begins in Boston in August 2008. As producer/director, Gibson released two recent blockbusters, The Passion of the Christ (2004), a biblical and graphic depiction of Christ's last hours, and Apocalypto (2006), a depiction of the cruelty of the pagan Mayans, who were to be civilized by the Christian missionaries.
So literally Christian was The Passion that radical Jewish leaders viciously persecuted Gibson for producing it, yet the anti-Catholic bigotry of the Jewish leaders was routed when The Passion of the Christ became Number 11 on the All-time Top-grossing American Movies list, grossing Mel Gibson's Icon Productions almost $400,000,000, significant amounts of which he donated to traditional Catholic churches.

Didn't the TRADITIO Network warn you that Benedict-Ratzinger's "Motu" Mess is a hoax? We have further proof that it is now no longer the "Mass of 1962," let alone the Traditional Latin Mass. It is the Mess of 1962-2007-2008. First, there was the 2007 Novus Ordo change to the ancient Good Friday service. Now the Newchurch Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, headed by Newcardinal Dario Hoyos, has decreed in Benedict-Ratzinger's name that the "Motu" Mess must use the Novus Ordo calendar.
The Newchurch Bishops' Conference of England and Wales submitted a question to Hoyos' commission, and that commission confirmed that whichever form of the Newchurch liturgy is being celebrated, Ordinary (Novus Ordo) or Extraordinary ("Motu"), the Holydays of Obligation must be simulated on the dates of the Novus Ordo calendar, not the traditional one. Thus, among other high feasts, Ascension Thursday becomes Ascension Sunday, contrary to Holy Scripture, which provides that it occurred forty days after Easter.
Good Catholics, more changes are in store to make the "Motu" Mess into the Novus Ordo Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service. It is now indisputably clear that the "Motu" Hoax Mess is just a play-toy for the New Order, to get neocon Newchurchers to put their dollars into Newchurch's Sex Crimes Fund. The only Catholic reaction to this nonsense is to reject the "Motu" Mess entirely and return it to Benedict-Ratzinger in Newrome, postage due!
Good Catholics, atheistic Communism is alive and well. Whether it still exists in the former Soviet Union is one question, but there is no doubt that it still exists in a country of over one billion souls, Red China.
The Polish weekly Wprost of April 28, 2008, shows a Soviet politburo document of November 1979, personally signed by Mikhail Gorbachev, authorizing the Communist KGB Secret Police to kill JPII. JPII's own association with the Communists is a matter of speculation, until documents now being unearthed since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991 come fully to light. It is already known that one out of five clergy in JPII's episcopate of Krakow were agents for the Polish Communist Secret Police, and suspicions were raised that JPII must have known about this, but did nothing. So, will that United Nations arm known as the International Court of Justice arraign Gorbachev as it once did U.S. President Bill Clinton and Serbian President Slobodan Milosevic? Not on your life! This Communist is sacrosanct, whereas the JPII the Ungreat, should have been, was not.
Benedict-Ratzinger has already sent one friendly message to Red China, and he has unofficially approved the installation of bishops associated with that murderous regime in the Patriotic National Church, the government-controlled Church. Pope Pius XII had excommunicated these sellouts to Communism. Now they too, along with the "underground" Newchurch, gone New Order. The irony is that until the 1990s the PNC actually retained the Traditional Latin Mass, Sacraments, and Faith, while the "underground" Newchurchers had sold out.
U.S. President George W. Bush has already converted from Episcopalianism to Methodism, his wife's sect. Now the Italian weekly Panorama reports that he might be considering converting at the end of his term in January 2009 to the New Order sect. Of course, all three sects are heretical and partake of the New Order heresy of Modernism. Bush's younger brother, Jeb, governor of Florida, already converted to the New Order sect some years ago because his wife is a member of that sect.
If such a thing should happen, Bush would join former British prime minister Tony Blair, who converted to his radical liberalist wife's New Order sect. Newvatican allowed this to happen without Blair's having to renounce his anti-Catholic positions in favor of abortion and "gay" marriage. Typical of Benedict-Ratzinger's hypocritical and unCatholic Newchurch!
Good Catholics, to hear the neocon Newchurchers, you'd think that the Conciliar popes are idiots, having no real control over Newchurch. This is, of course, a Novus Ordo hoax to exculpate the Conciliar popes from their sacrileges and errors.
Their latest hoax concerns Benedict-Ratzinger's "Baseball" Mess, simulated on April 17, 2008, in Washington Nationals Baseball Stadium in Washington, D.C. This was a standard Novus Ordo extravaganza, in which both JPII and Benedict-Ratzinger had previously "presided" on many occasions. It featured the Freemason Hannibal-Bugnini's phony "Presto" Eucharistic Prayer, the "For All" vernacular error, and the secular music of Protestants and Aboriginals. Nothing out of the ordinary there.
However, this typical Modernist papal extravaganza didn't sit well with the neocon papolators, who have to create an entirely false picture of the Modernist Benedict-Ratzinger as traditional, or at least conservative. In reality, from his own mouth, he is a fervent proponent of Vatican II and Modernism. The neocon papolators have to concoct some explanation, so they are choosing to use the same lie that they tried to use about previous Conciliar popes: they were too stupid to know what was going on.
One of many ignorant neocon Newchurch talking-heads tried to make it seem as if Benedict-Ratzinger had nothing to do with the invalid Novus Ordo service that he simulated in Washington, D.C., with these words: "In the name of 'multiculturalism,' the pope was subjected to music more suitable to dingy dance halls than churches. The Psalms of David were distorted to the point of ear-splitting dissonance. The congos, pan flutes, meringue rhythms, the jazz and blues and rock, the swaggering vocals, the puffed-up soloing, went beyond even the most pessimistic predictions."
So, what is the truth of the matter? As the TRADITIO Network well before the extravaganza, Benedict-Ratzinger's handpicked new papal Master of Ceremonies, Msgr. Guido Marini, announced that the guidelines that were used on Newpope's junket to the United States were "substantially the same" as the set developed during the pontificate of JPII with its "Clown" Messes. Marini confirmed that Newpope and Newvatican had raised no objections to any part of the Novus Ordo "liturgy," which was approved by the papal office in advance.
In any case, even if Benedict-Ratzinger were merely an ignorant shill for his underlings, he certain could have chosen at the altar to use a different Eucharistic prayer and, most easily, substitute "for many" instead of "for all," even extemporaneously. No, as U.S. President Harry Truman said: "The buck stops here." Benedict-Ratzinger is personally responsible for these sacrilegious and invalid Novus Ordo services and for the rampage of sex crimes on which his cardinals, bishops, and presbyters are engaged -- without his taking any action against them.
