Benedict-Ratzinger's Mouthpiece Defends Himself
Against Charges of the Late Archbishop Lefebvre

From: The Fathers

Address 1300 Oecumanics in Los Angeles, California
Defending Himself, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Newchurch
Against the Charges of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, Now Dead Seventeen Years

Now even the ghosts are coming back to haunt Newchurch. Benedict-Ratzinger's appointee as Prefect of the Newchurch Doctrine of the Faith, William Levada, has given a highly defensive address on September 26, 2008, in which he attempted to defend himself, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Newchurch as a whole against Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre's charge that they had "canonized relativism."

Levada was the former archbishop of Portland, Oregon, where he was under federal subpoena to explain how he drove the archdiocese to bankruptcy, and of San Francisco, California, where he was under other subpoenas to answer for the sex crimes that went on there under his administration. In fact, when Levada performed his final Novus Ordo Mess at his cathedral in San Francisco, derided by the locals as "St. Mary Maytag" because of its grotesque architecture looking like a washing-machine, one of his sex victims jumped out of a pew to slap him with yet another subpoena. In fact, so hot had things become for Levada by 2005 that Benedict-Ratzinger had to shield him from the exposure of his crimes in court by giving him a Vatican diplomatic passport and a transfer to his bosom in Newrome.

Levada's defensive remarks were made in an address to 1300 oecumanics, as the late Catholic traditional leader Fr. Gommar DePauw used to call them, at the 2008 Los Angeles Catholic [sic] Prayer Breakfast. Levada defended the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965) and its novel document, Dignitatis humanae relating to so-called religious liberty, which traditional Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, a participant at the council (as Levada was not), condemned as a "canonization of relativism," the notion that "all gods are equal" and "we all worship the same god."

Good Catholics, it is amazing what an impact one traditional archbishop continues to have on Newchurch. Archbishop Lefebvre died in 1991, seventeen years ago, and yet here we have a New Order functionary of a New Order pope still trying to defend the unCatholic teaching of Vatican II, which the Archbishop condemned along with many other Cardinals and Bishops of the time, to the day of his death. In hindsight, one can hardly deny that the Archbishop's statement was proven true: Newchurch has canonized the "all gods are the same" prattle so that the Newchurchers of today can no longer explain why they anyone ought to be "Catholic" instead of Hindu!

Mel Gibson's New Film Has Begun Shooting in Boston, Massachusetts
It Has Themes Reminiscent of Newchurch's Ongoing Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal

Holy Family Traditional Catholic Church (Independent)
Which Traditional Catholic Mel Gibson Built
From the Proceeds of His 2004 Religious Epic, The Passion of the Christ
The Church Sits on a Property of 45,000 Square Metres in Agoura Hills, California

Producer-Director-Actor Mel Gibson, probably the world's most identifiable traditional Catholic, is taking a respite from the religious themes that he made so famous. 2004's The Passion of the Christ became the eleventh-top-grossing American film, netting producer-director Gibson $370,000,000. 2006's Apocalypto depicted of the cruelty of the pagan Mayans, who were then Providentially civilized by the Christian missionaries. Gibson donated $30,000,000, a one-tenth tithe, of the proceeds from Passion to the independent traditional Catholic Holy Family Catholic Church, which he built from scratch in Agoura Hills, California. He gave other donations as well to other independent traditional Catholic churches around the United States.

On August 18, 2008, Gibson resumed his role as actor, which has earned him praise for such films as 1995's Academy Award winner Braveheart and 2000's Patriot. On that date Edge of Darkness started shooting in Boston, Massachusetts. Gibson stars as the straitlaced Boston police-detective hero in this film version of the acclaimed 1985 British Broadcasting Corporation thriller miniseries. Co-starring with him are Ray Winstone, Danny Huston, Bojana Novakovic, and Shawn Roberts.

The theme could just as well have come from today's headlines. Gibson uncovers the secret life of his daughter, a murder victim, and discovers a corporate cover-up and government collusion, just as Boston and its Newcardinal Bernard Law first exploded into public recognition Newchurch's ongoing Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal, also involving cover-up and collusion.

2008: Fourteenth Anniversary of the TRADITIO Network

From: The Fathers

Today, the Feastday of St. Michael the Archangel, TRADITIO's heavenly patron, is the fourteenth anniversary of the TRADITIO Traditional Roman Catholic Network. The TRADITIO Network is the most popular traditional Roman Catholic site on the internet, as determined in a statistical survey performed by an search subsidiary. TRADITIO was also the first traditional Roman Catholic site to appear on the internet. We appeared on September 29, 1994 -- even before the Newvatican's web site appeared.

It is humbling to realize that we have now touched some 8,500,000 souls, many of whom would never have learned about Traditional Catholic Movement except from the TRADITIO Network. Our file bulges with thousands of messages from readers who have found the true Roman Catholic Faith, or have re-found it, because of the TRADITIO Networks's direct and uncompromising presentation of the traditional Roman Catholic Faith in increasingly confusing times.

During our fourteen years we have tried to focus on the Big Picture of what is going on in the Church. Our subtitle tells our mission: "The Independent Voice of Traditional Roman Catholicism from 1994." There are some differences of opinion in the Movement, but these pale in comparison with the essentials of the Big Four on which all traditional Roman Catholics are united: the Traditional Latin Mass, the Traditional Latin Sacraments, Traditional Roman Catholic Doctrine, and Traditional Roman Catholic Morality.

We thank the Lord for our correspondents all over the world, who keep us current on everything going on in the bowels of Newvatican, in the inner sancta of various traditional organizations such as the Society of St. Pius X, and at the many Traditional Latin Mass sites in North America and around the world. To this raw data, the TRADITIO Network gives what no other site does: not the perspective of some johnny-come-lately convert from the New Order, but decades of knowledge, analysis, and perspective extending to before Vatican II. The truth is not to be found in mere information, but in the seasoned and sagacious analysis and interpretation of the raw material from long experience and observation. That is what the TRADITIO Network alone presents: the classical Catholic approach.

If TRADITIO has been of assistance to you over these many years, please remember us on this our anniversary date, and say a prayer for the intercession of our powerful patron St. Michael, for all the traditional clergy, for the true Church as a whole, and for our Roman Catholic civilization:

Sancte Michael Archangele, defende nos in praelio. Contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli esto praesidium. Imperet illi Deus, supplices deprecamur. Tuque princeps militiae caelestis, Satanam aliosque spiritus malignos, qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo divina virtute in infernum detrude. Amen.

Newrome's Latest Scandal: Benedict-Ratzinger's Personal Chaplain
Acted as Official Witness to the "Marriage" of a Newchurch Presbyter

From: The Fathers
Peter Smith

Peter Smith, Newchurch Archbishop of Cardiff, Wales
Constructed a "Wall of Silence" around His Vicar General Msgr. Robert Reardon
Reardon Has Been Exposed as Serving as an Official Witness
At the Sham "Marriage" of a Newchurch Presbyter
Reardon, Who Putatively Suffered Automatic Excommunication by His Act
Had Been Tipped to Become a Bishop

Benedict-Ratzinger's personal chaplain, Msgr. Robert Reardon, has been revealed when a parish presbyter to have served as an official witness at the marriage of Newchurch presbyter before a civil official. Reardon has recently been tipped to become the Newchurch bishop of Menevia, a diocese covering Mid and West Wales.

Just as those Catholic parties who participate in an invalid marriage before a Protestant minister or civil official are excommunicated, Reardon, by acting as an official civil witness at an invalid "marriage" of a presbyter, committed an ecclesiastical crime for which he putatively suffered automatic excommunication. Moreover, Newchurch Archbishop Peter Smith, of Cardiff, is being charged with erecting a "wall of silence" about the ecclesiastical crime, of which Reardon has publicly admitted that he is guilty. {Some information for this Commentary was provided by Western Mail.]

Reardon, however, feigns ignorance of Catholic moral theology that prevented his participation in a sham "marriage" -- of a presbyter yet! Well, if he is that ignorant of Catholic theology, he has no business becoming a bishop, let alone a presbyter! And don't waste any time waiting for Benedict-Ratzinger to dismiss his chaplain; he won't.

Benedict-Ratzinger Appoints a New Gaggle of Papal "Liturgical Consultants"

From: The Fathers

On September 24, 2008, Benedict-Ratzinger named a new raft of papal "liturgical consultants, all from the Novus Ordo. Newpope is shuffling around more doomed passengers on Newchurch's "RMS Titanic," the Benedict-Ratzinger-approved "Ordinary Rite," the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Novus Ordo Mess.

Although clueless Neocon Newchurchers will lap up the new "registry of the garter," we TRADITIO Network Fathers are still waiting for Benedict-Ratzinger to perform his first Conciliar-Bugnini Latin "Motu" Mess of 1962-2007-2008! At best, the Neocons will get just one of those -- and we wouldn't even count on that! Don't ever expect a real Traditional Latin Mass out of this deceptive fox. He's a self-described flaming Modernist and disciple of Vatican II and Paul VI. [Some information for this Commentary was provided by the CNA.]

Protestants Gear up Support for California's Pro-traditional Marriage Constitutional Amendment
While Newchurch Bishop Niederauer Is Opposing It with "Gay" Mess

Hundreds of Protestant pastors have called on their congregations to fast and pray for passage of a ballot measure, Proposition 8, on the November 4, 2008, California ballot that it is hoped would put an end to gay "marriage" in California. The California Supreme Court overrode two votes of the people to allow "gay" marriage on May 16, 2008, and thousands of "gay" marriage have been "consummated" since then. The collective "act of piety," starting October 29, 2008 and ending November 1, 2008, will finish with a revival for as many as 100,000 people at the San Diego Chargers' stadium.

Some Protestant pastors around the state are encouraging their flocks to forgo solid food for up to 40 days in the biblical tradition. One Protestant Evangelical pastor said that he expects up to a hundred young adults in his congregation to spend five-plus weeks subsisting on soup and juice. Under U.S. law religious organizations cannot endorse political candidates, but are free to campaign on social issues without endangering their tax-exempt status. [Some information for this Commentary was provided by the Associated Press.]

Good for the Protestants, but where are the Newchurchers? The New Order Knights of Columbus have donated $1,300,000 in support of the proposition, but the Mormons, a small group that numbers fewer than 10% the number of Newchurchers, gave 600% of that amount. Bill May, Leader of Catholics [sic] for Protect Marriage, criticized his fellow Newchurchers: "This Supreme Court decision was a huge wake-up call for Catholics [sic]. It was shocking. The sense is that this is the last chance to restore the definition of marriage, and if unsuccessful, it is going to have serious ramifications for California and across the country."

May was not honest enough to admit that Newchurch has, with its actions, been supporting "gay" marriage. His own bishop, George Niederauer, of San Francisco, was publicized on national television simulating a "Gay" Mess at a "gay" Newparish, which sponsored a "gay" float in San Francisco's "Gay Pride" Parade. Newchurch in California (and elsewhere) has also been involved in placing children in the homes of "gay" parents for adoption.

Although Californians have rejected "gay" marriages by plebiscite twice in the past by a large majority, polls on the Proposition 8 indicate that the constitutional amendment may fail by 55-45. With immoral Newchurch bishops like Niederauer, no wonder! [Some information for this Commentary was provided by the Associated Press.]

Benedict-Ratzinger Turns to Chief Rabbi to Give His Synod Newbishops a Mandatory "Bible School"

From: The Fathers

You know that Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch of the New Order has hit rock bottom when he has to call upon a Jewish rabbi to teach his theology to his Newbishops. Newpope has turned to an Israeli rabbi to give his Newbishops a day-long Bible school at the New Order bishops' Synod scheduled for October 2008 in Newrome. Shear-Yashuv Cohen, the Grand Rabbi of Haifa, will give the mandatory Bible school under the theme "The Word of God in the Life and Mission of the Church." How would Cohen know anything about that topic when he doesn't even believe that the New Testament of Jesus Christ is part of the Bible?!

Noted Newchurch Official Exposes Himself in Book as a "Happy Porn-writing Sodomite"
In the Latest Sex Scandal to Hit the New Order Sect

Pomfret Book

Noted Newchurch Official and Federal Attorney Scott Pomfret
Has Shocked Newchurch by Revealing Himself as a Sodomite and Pornographer
He Also Exposes a Number of Local Clergy as Being in a Similar Condition
In His New Book, Since My Last Confession
Boston Newcardinal Sean O'Malley Was Again Caught Flat-footed

A noted Boston lawyer and Newchurch official, Scott Pomfret, has exposed himself in a new book, Since My Last Confession, as a "happy porn-writing sodomite." He revealed that a number of local clergy, whom Newcardinal Sean O'Malley has not expelled, are in a similar condition. O'Malley has, however, been forced to expel Pomfret, leaving the presbyters in place to "serve" Newchurch. Pomfret has been removed from all the leadership posts in Newchurch in which he has served the last eight years. It turns out that Newchurch was harboring the self-admitted "Sodomite," who lives in Boston openly with his "flaming atheist boyfriend" and is a well-known author of "gay" pornography -- at least among those who read this kind of perverted trash.

Yet, perverted as Pomfret is, he does get some things right. A central point in his book is the hypocrisy of Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch. He reveals how the "rules" that Newvatican issues are a joke. Parish presbyters decide whether these supposed "rules" are appropriate for their congregations -- and often simply ignore them. In some Newparishes, openly "gay" presbyters welcome their "gay" and Lesbian congregants. In others, presbyters ignore constraints on marrying divorced parishioners. And then there is Benedict-Ratzinger and his prelates, who for so long have abetted and covered up rampant crimes in Newchurch -- and continue to do so.

A Novus Ordo "Supper" of Cookies and Kool-Aid

From: Anna
Christ Castigating the Pharisees

Christ Gives the Pharisees His Finger, Calling Them "Filthy"
Our Lord Did Not Hesitate to Use Strong, even Foul, Language
Against Those Who Would Sell out the True Faith or Bring It into Disrepute by Crimes
The Real Christ as Revealed in the Original Language of the Gospels
Is Far from the "Oecumenical," Non-judgmental, Effeminate Pansy Portrayed by the New Order

Dear Fathers:

Though I agree with your assessments of Newchurch, I am troubled when you refer to the Novus Ordo species as cookies and Kool-aid, even assuming you are right that abuses have changed many of the consecrations to make them invalid. I am a devout, lifelong Catholic, who feels alienated from the revisionist Novus Ordo and duped Catholics.

The Fathers Reply.

We say it because the Novus Ordo species are in fact cookies and Kool-Aid. For years now, Newchurch dioceses have published their "recipes," which are flatly invalid, as they are recipes for cookies, not bread. Newchurch itself has admitted this fact. On May 11, 1979, the Newcardinal Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, issued a finding, approved in forma specifica by JPII, that many Novus Ordo services were defective in matter. Although JPII required the doing of all such invalid services all over again, the finding was secreted by the head of the Newchurch bishops in the United States and not even announced at their annual meeting. The invalid "recipes" continue in use to this day.

Anne, you don't see the irony of your statement. You are more upset about a couple of words than about the fact that the Novus Ordo is invalid. That is precisely why we use these words: for the purpose of getting a visceral reaction from people such as you, who are all too complacent with compromising the true Faith and the substituting of a phony "eucharist." You should be indignant!

We hope, rather, to emulate the courage of the Saints, who stood up and denounced corruption in the Church. We admire the brilliant satires of St. Augustine, St. Thomas More, and others against the corruptions of the Church of their times. Ultimately, our standard must be that of Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself. He used foul language against the corruptions of the Church and its leaders of His time. If you read the Gospels in an authentic translation (not the Modernized ones that water down the language to suit the New Order), you get at least some hint of His vocabulary. Just start with His seven Woes hurled against the corrupt Church leaders of his time. Unfortunately, the force of His rhetoric is often lost, which even in the better "translations" is softened. Our rhetoric doesn't hold a candle to Our Lord's!

The New Order has over the last forty years presented us with a False Christ, an "oecumenized" Christ, a non-judgmental Christ, even an effeminate Christ. The real Christ, as clearly revealed in the Gospels, is not "oecumenical" (he strongly criticizes a large segment of the Jews), quite judgmental (as in the Seven Woes hurled against the leaders of the Church), and very strong, even foul, in his language. In a world that doesn't stand for uncompromised truth, but prefers word-games and "tolerance" of every evil, the Real Christ is anathema. But the Real Christ was not some pusillanimous pansy. He said exactly what He meant and spared no language to describe vividly the foulness of Caiphas and his crowd.

It continues to amaze us how Neocon Newchurchers get so upset about straightforward language, but when it comes to popes that suborn rape, bishops that defraud Catholics of the true Mass and Sacraments, and Neotheologians who deny Catholic doctrine, no great offense is taken. Such Newchurchers have lost track of the Big Picture -- and of the Catholic Faith. As a Catholic, you must stand fast in your Faith and not accept invalidating "compromises" in the Holy Mass and the Sacraments. You must stand up for what is truly Catholic in no uncertain terms. At your Confirmation you pledged to accept even stripes for the true Faith. And a couple of words bother you instead of the fact that the Mass and Sacraments have almost everywhere been invalidated?!

Our files are filled with hundreds of grateful responses of people who, like you, squirmed, but then, after they were forced by those words to confront the reality instead of being able to hide behind pusillanimous compromise with the New Order, they converted to the true Faith. You really need to look at the Big Picture, not get wrapped up in minor side issues. That is exactly what the New Order wants you to do -- and you have fallen into its trap.

Newpopes' Immorality Spills over into the Secular Realm

From: The Fathers
Ratzinger & JPII

JPII "the Non-great" and, Hiding Behind Him, His Sex Czar since 2001 Newcardinal Ratzinger
These Two Newpopes Have Done More to Damage the Church
Than the "Bad" Popes of Earlier Centuries
Their Immoral Example Has Now Spilled over into the Secular Realm

What happens when the Church becomes corrupt? What effect does it have upon the secular world? We have a salient example in the current financial crisis in the United States. Amidst talk of government bailouts, what is very little spoken of is the corruption of politicians who have received what amounts to graft in payments for allowing financial organs to operate corruptly. These politicians are supposed to be the regulators of these companies.

According to the U.S. Federal Election Commission]

#1 Senator Christopher Dodd   $133,900   Chairman of the Senate Banking Committee
#2 Senator John Kerry          111,000   Democratic Party Presidential Nominee 2004
#3 Senator Barack Obama        105,849   Democratic Party Presidential Nominee 2008
#4 Senator Hillary Clinton      75,550   Democratic Party Presidential Candidate 2008
#16 Senator Barney Frank        40,110   Chairman of the House Financial Services Committee
#22 Representative Nancy Pelosi 32,750   Speaker of the House

(Neither Republican Presidential Candidate John McCain, Republican Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin, nor Democratic Vice Presidential Candidate Joseph Biden appear on this list.)

Just as Newchurch has been headed by Benedict-Ratzinger and his predecessor JPII, who have openly aided and abetted, by a monstrous cover-up, their prelates and presbyters who have raped and assaulted Newchurch children, whose "Holy Father" they are supposed to be, the Chairman of the House Banking Committee of the U.S. Congress, which under the U.S. Constitution has primary jurisdiction over financial matters, was formally reprimanded in 1990 by the House of Representatives on a vote of 408-18 for his sexual relationship with a male prostitute. Frank was also accused of conducting a prostitution ring out of his apartment, a ring that allegedly included underage pages of the House. Yet there are no general calls for the resignation of Benedict-Ratzinger, nor of Barney Frank, nor of Christopher Dodd, nor of Barack Obama, nor of Hillary Clinton, much less for their criminal prosecution.

Good Catholics, it could easily be argued that JPII's and Benedict-Ratzinger's example of immorality has been spilling over into the secular realm. Without a "good pope," what moral example does the secular world have?

Did I Miss the Ember Days of September?
Why Are the Motarians and the SSPX Not Using the Traditional Calendar?

From: Pat

Dear Fathers:

A friend in a "Motu" group said that the Ember Days occur in the week of September 21 this year, 2008. I heard that the local SSPX church announced likewise. I found on an earlier TRADITIO Commentary (2002) that traditionally the Ember Days of September occur the week after the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, September 14. Do you know why those other groups are contradicting that?

The Fathers Reply.

Yes, we know why. The "Motu" site and the SSPX site are following the calendar of the Conciliar-Bugnini Latin Mass of 1962, not the traditional Catholic calendar of Pope St. Pius X. This "Modernized" calendar was introduced by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini in 1956 and 1960. Traditionally, the Ember Days of September fall after the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross, September 14th. Therefore, the Ember Days for September 2008 are the 17th, 19th, and 20th, as given in the TRADITIO Network's Traditional Liturgical Calendar department, which is based on the the traditional calendar and ordo recommend in that department as being the most traditional.

The September Ember Days fall in the third week of September and always are the Wednesday, Friday and Saturday after the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross (Holyrood in the old rhyme): "Fasting days and Emberings be Lent, Whitsun, Holyrood, and Lucie." One of the many novelties contained in the Conciliar-Bugnini Liturgical Books of 1962 was a new way of counting Sundays that meant that the September Ember days no longer necessarily fall on their traditional days, a situation that is occurring in 2008 and causing the confusion you mention between fully traditional and semi-traditional people.

Archbishop Comes to Newchurch from Outer Space -- and We Have the Photographs to Prove It!

Myers Posed for the Photographs, in Which He Ridicules
His Own Episcopacy and His Episcopal Coat of Arms
(Pictured on His Space Helmet in the Center Photograph)

You've often heard it said that Newchurch bishops are from outer space, and now the TRADITIO Network has received photographic confirmation. John Myers, Newchurch Archbishop of Newark, New Jersey, has been exposed in photographs as an alien from outer space. The pictures tell the true story. His Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Order religion is definitely spaced out!

It seems that Myers has chosen to write not theology, but a space opera, and has wigged out into acting like a alien from outer space. We should be thankful that he didn't write New Order theology. Undoubtedly, it would be more spaced out than his "Little Men from Mars."

Can a Holyday of Obligation Be Transferred to a Sunday?

From: The Fathers

Dear Fathers:

Is it permissible traditionally to transfer a Holyday of Obligation to the following Sunday?

The Fathers Reply.

No. The transference of Holydays of Obligation to the following Sunday is not permitted. It is a corruption introduced by the Novus Ordo. Those "Motu" sites that do so are simply confirming that they are creatures of the Novus Ordo, not traditional Catholic.

There is a different situation, called an External Solemnity, that is sometimes confused by laypeople with the principle just enunciated. A feast that used to be celebrated on a Sunday, but by Pope St. Pius X's Divino afflatu of 1911, was assigned to some definite date or to a weekday, is allowed, by an October 28, 1913, decree of the Sacred Congregation of Rites, to be celebrated additionally on the following Sunday as an External Solemnity, so called because it is "external" to, i.e., different from, the Divine Office celebrated on that Sunday.

By Apostolic indults for the United States and most other English-speaking countries, an External Solemnity of the Feast of Corpus Christi (indult of November 25, 1885) and of the Feast of Saints Peter & Paul (indult of December 19, 1840) must be celebrated on the Sunday following the Feast. One Mass is to be celebrated as on the Feast, with the commemoration of the Sunday (under its own conclusion) and the Last Gospel of the Sunday. These Feasts that must or may have External Solemnities comprise the following:

The Press Catches Benedict-Ratzinger Committing Sacrilege at Lourdes

From: The Fathers
Benedict-Ratzinger & Cookie

Benedict-Ratzinger Continues to "Hand Out" the Novus Ordo Cookie
Now the Press Has Caught Him in Objective Sacrilege at Lourdes
He Didn't Finish the Purification and Consumption of the Sacrifice of the Mess
And Out-of-control Crowds Then Invaded the Altar to Steal and Desecrate Them

The respected German weekly, Der Spiegel, has stunned Europe by giving an eyewitness report on the sacrilege committed by Benedict-Ratzinger at his Mess on September 14, 2008, at the Shrine of Our Lady of Lourdes, France. The magazine's Vatican reporter, Alexander Smoltczyk, was a witness to the sacrileges.

The reporter wrote that Benedict-Ratzinger abandoned the altar after his extravaganza Mess before he had purified the vessels and seen to the consumption of the Novus Ordo cookies and Kool-Aid. Numerous "hosts" were left there, unprotected, and frenetic crowds of Newchurchers and others swarmed up to grab the cookies and stuff them into their pockets and purses. Others thrust their fingers into the leftover "blood" and smeared it on their foreheads. Then one woman ascended the platform and sat in the papal chair, while another woman stuffed the altar linens into her bags. The reporter concluded: "This scene was unbelievable; I am still appalled."

Good Catholics, this incident confirms the fact that the Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid are invalid. Even Benedict-Ratzinger treats them this way. His predecessor, JPII, committed a similar sacrilege, reported even in the Newchurch press, when he had extra "hosts" manhandled into burlap sacks and thrown into the Hudson River after one of his own extravaganza Messes. Objectively, the press has caught Benedict-Ratzinger in one of the gravest of sacrileges. By such acts, the Conciliar popes tell the Newchurchers that their cookies and Kool-Aid are invalid and phony. As a priest, Benedict-Ratzinger is required to protect these things with his very life!

Benedict-Ratzinger's Health in Doubt Again
Newvatican Has Announced that He Is Too Frail to Attend World Family Day

From: The Fathers

Benedict-Ratzinger is too frail to make a junket to Mexico City for World Family Day in January 2009. The September 18, 2008, announcement has raised concerns again that the 81-year-old Benedict-Ratzinger is not long for this world. He has suffered two strokes and one episode of brain concussion from a fall. His brother has frequently mentioned to the press his ill health. At that same age and older, JPII made travels to Armenia, Ukraine, Greece, Syria, Malta, Poland, Toronto, Bulgaria, Ischia, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Croatia, Spain, Pompeii, Slovakia, Bern, Lourdes, and Loreto.

Newcardinal Ennio Antonelli, President of the Pontifical Council for the Family, made the announcement. Antonelli, personally appointed by Benedict-Ratzinger to the post on June 7, 2008, is currently under fire for perverting his office, as he had shut down an ecclesiastical investigation to shield his auxiliary bishop, Claudio Maniago, when Florence, Italy, police had confirmed that he was a member of a sado-masochistic ring that was involved with prostitutes. And Benedict-Ratzinger knew. [Information for this Commentary was provided by ANSA, Apcom, and the Associated Press.]

Benedict-Ratzinger's New Bishop to Give "Gay"-friendly Address aboard Queen Mary

From: The Fathers

Benedict-Ratzinger's personal appointee as Newchurch bishop of Sacramento, California, will give a "gay-friendly" address on September 18, 2008, to the National Association of Catholic [sic] Diocesan Lesbian and Gay Ministries conference aboard the Queen Mary in Long Beach. Benedict-Ratzinger's designee has previously spoken at the Association's conference in Palm Springs. This year he will speak on the theme "Renewal and Rediscovery" of Gayness.

Bishop of Baltimore Edwin O'Brien Imprisons Newchurchers
For Handing out Anti-abortion Literature at Cathedral

From: The Fathers
Edwin O'Brien

Edwin O'Brien, Newchurch Archbishop of Baltimore, Maryland
Signed an Order Having Two Newchurch Laymen Imprisoned
For Passing out Anti-abortion Literature in the Cathedral after Mess
In 2007 O'Brien Prohibited Newchurch Military Chaplains from Preaching against Abortion

In what may be the most political action by a Newchurch bishop yet, Edwin O'Brien, archbishop of Baltimore, Maryland, has ordered two Newchurch laymen imprisoned for handing out anti-abortion literature and questioning the ethics of pro-abortion U.S. Democratic Presidential candidate, Barack Hussein Obama.

Joseph Landry and Brian Sherwood were arrested in the Basilica of the Assumption in Baltimore and jailed for passing out anti-abortion literature after Mess. They were described as "peaceful and respectful." As laymen around the United States plan to hand out anti-abortion literature at Newchurch cathedrals across the nation, more bishops are expected to have Newchurch arrested for upholding the Catholic teachings that the bishops themselves are not. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Christian Newswire.]

In 2007 O'Brien was involved in a scandal Newchurch when, as U.S. Newchurch Military Chaplain, he vetoed Newchurch chaplains from saying specifically Catholic prayers. The issue came to a head when a Newchurch presbyter was ordered not to preach to his congregation against partial-birth abortion because it would have an "adverse effect on unit cohesion."

Rosary Worn as a Fashion Accessory Declared a Gang Symbol and Banned from Dallas Area Schools

From: The Fathers

A Dallas-area high school student has been forbidden from wearing her rosary to school as jewelry because worn that way, it is considered a gang symbol. She was wearing it around her neck when a security guard at her school stopped her at the door. School officials told the girl that she was free to use the rosary and pray silent, as long as she did not wear it like a gang symbol. The Dallas police stated that lately they had been seeing religious artifacts being worn as jewelry by gang members. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Fox4 News.]

Apparently, it didn't occur to this Newchurch girl that the rosary is not an fashion accessory, but a Sacramental for prayer. We TRADITIO Fathers ourselves have seen the rosary used as a fashion accessory rather than used as a Sacramental for prayer. This pattern is becoming all too common. Also, Newchurchers are increasing committing Mortal Sins against the Fifth Commandment by tattooing their bodies like pagans as some kind of "fashion statement."

Ecclesia Dei Commission's President Lashes out at Traditional Catholics
Hoyos Disses Those Wanting Restoration of the True Mass as "Insatiable, Incredible"

From: The Fathers
Dario Hoyos

Smiling No Longer: Newcardinal Hoyos Has a Nose as Long as Pinnochio's
Now that He Has Essentially Admitted that Benedict-Ratzinger's "Motu" Mess Is a Lie
He Has Lashed out at Traditional Catholics Who Have Written to Newrome
He Tells Them: Put Up with the Crumb of the "Motu" or Shut up!
Hoyos May Be Singing His Swan-song; Now 79, Is Due to Retire

As further proof that Benedict-Ratzinger's "Motu" Mess is a hoax, devised simply to keep some traditional Catholics from rejecting the New Order entirely, Dario Hoyos, the President of the Ecclesia Dei Commission, has lashed out, calling them "insatiable, incredible." He has told them that they'd better accept the Great "Motu" Mess Hoax, because that's all they're going to get from Newrome!

On September 16, 2008, Hoyos followed up Benedict-Ratzinger's statement that the "Motu" Mess is in the hands of the bishops, not Newrome. Hoyos' commission has received requests for the "Motu" to be used at more than one Mass and more than one church in a diocese. Hoyos has told these correspondents: Forget it! Hoyos was outraged by a request that the Archbasilica of St. Mary Major in Rome be dedicated exclusively to the celebration of the "Motu" Mess. Hoyos lashed back: "Such people, he said, are insatiable, incredible." He said that traditional Catholics "do not know the harm they are doing." They should put up or shut up, he said.

Hoyos was particularly livid about those who criticize him and Benedict-Ratzinger on the internet when they refuse to do anything concrete even for the "Motu" Mess. Hoyos reminded traditional Catholics that Benedict-Ratzinger "officially" decreed that the Novus Ordo service is the Ordinary liturgy, not the "Motu" Mess, which is simply an occasional exception. He indicated that if an instruction document for the "Motu" Mess ever comes out of his Commission, it will not expand "Motu" usage, but rein it in.

Meanwhile, the Ecclesia Dei Commission's secretary, Camille Perl, admitted that most bishops and religious-order superiors in Italy, Germany, and elsewhere had prohibited their presbyters from doing the "Motu" Mess. Although Hoyos implied that his Commission might take steps against laypeople who demanded action on the "Motu," Benedict-Ratzinger told the French Newchurch bishops that he would take a hands off attitude, leaving the situation in the hands of the bishops, who are the "moderators of the liturgy in their dioceses." [Some information for this Commentary was provided by CNS and La Repubblica.]

Good Catholics, Hoyos is losing it. He asked the press: "What is more important: the mystery of God Who becomes bread or the language by which we celebrate the mystery?" The correct answer, Dario, is BOTH! When you presumed to set up this question as "either-or," you have indicated that you are far from traditional and far from Catholic. (For further information, click on the TRADITIO Network's Necessity of Latin for the Roman Catholic Church, From the Writings of Roman Catholic Saints, Popes, and Theologians.)

It is remarkable what Hoyos has admitted. In 2005 he admitted that Benedict-Ratzinger was uncomfortable about his status as Bishop of Rome because he had not been consecrated in the valid traditional rite, but had been only installed in the Freemason Bugnini's Novus Ordo Ordinal of 1968. Now Hoyos is admitting that Benedict-Ratzinger is increasingly criticized because the "Motu" is being exposed as a hoax on the internet. Hoyos' hostile tone has done nothing but expose to traditional Catholics more than ever before that Benedict-Ratzinger and his henchman are simply playing them for fools.

Newchurch Bishop Suspends Presbyter for Saying "Motu" Mess
The "Latin Mass" Is Now Shut down in Leeds

From: The Fathers

On September 15, 2008, Arthur Roche, Newchurch bishop of Leeds, England, suspended presbyter Mark Lawler because he publicly celebrated a "Motu" Mess. St. John the Evangelist was supposed to have been closed, but Lawler did the "Motu" Mess there on Sunday. So Lawler supposedly can no longer do the "Motu" or Novus Ordo Mess and Sakraments.

'Motu' Mess Trap

On His Latest Junket Benedict-Ratzinger Assures the French Newchurch Bishops
That the "Motu" Mess Is a Trap to "Pacify" Traditional Catholics
So that They Will Accept the Novus Ordo as "Ordinary" and Remain in Newchurch

During his September 12-15, 2008, junket to France, Benedict-Ratzinger told the French Newchurch bishops that he was afraid that traditional Catholics would break into open schism about the imposition of the Novus Ordo service as the "Ordinary Form" in Newchurch, as dictated by his Apostolic Letter Summorum pontificum of July 7, 2008, which was devised to undermine their position. He admitted to the bishops that he is aware of a "growing split among Catholics" over the use of the Traditional Latin Mass, or at least the Conciliar-Bugnini Latin Mass of 1962, as revised to 2008. Nevertheless, Benedict-Ratzinger confirmed to the French Newchurch bishops that he would not "undo the reforms" of Vatican II.

Benedict-Ratzinger indicated to the French Newchurch bishops that his goal was not to restore traditional Catholicism to Newchurch, but to hand out a few scraps "to pacify [traditional] spirits" to keep them in the New Order. He therefore admits that he is in total contravention to the true Catholic "spirit," which led 11,000,000 martyrs to die for the true Faith in the first three centuries of the Church. These martyrs refused to compromise the true Faith with even one pinch of incense to the pagan emperor. But Neocon Newchurchers seem entirely happy with chopping down all the Cedars of Lebanon to put incense for Benedict-Ratzinger's Great "Motu" Mess hoax!

Surveys since Vatican II (1962-1965) have demonstrated that more and more Newchurchers are deserting the Novus Ordo Church, while the number of traditional Catholics grows. The Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) is merely the tip of the iceberg. There is a much larger number of independent traditional Catholic priests around the world, together with traditional societies such as the Society of St. Pius V (SSPV), the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen (CMRI), the Society of the Virgin Mary (SVM), the Order of St. John of Jerusalem (OSJ), and many others.

The Newchurch French bishops expressed concern to Benedict-Ratzinger that his "Motu" Mess could be seen as a rolling back the "liberalizing" spirit that was unleashed through the Church with the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965). Benedict-Ratzinger promised to the bishops that he would take no further action on the "Motu" and that its management is entirely in their hands.

Benedict-Ratzinger expressed his fear that his imposition of the (invalid) Novus Ordo service as the "Ordinary Form" would "crystallize into an insurmountable schism." He did not, however, indicate any realization that by imposing the Novus Ordo service, which he himself in 1993 termed "fabricated and manufactured" by the Freemason Hannibal Bugnini, he and his Conciliar predecessors had themselves fallen into schism according to Catholic theology expressed by the Fathers and Doctors of the Church, the so-called "Roman Schism of 1964."

U.S. Newchurch Bishop Purchases Vacation Mansion and Condo on the Upper-crust New Jersey Shore
His Newchurchers, Hit with Church Closings, Are Outraged

From: The Fathers

Newchurchers must be wondering where all their money is going. They keep plunking their money into the Novus Ordo collection plate, but their churches are still being shut down right and left by the Newchurch bishops. A recent revelation shows that the money, in addition to paying off damage judgments to child-victims of clergy sex crimes, may be going into the coffers of the corrupt Newchurch bishops themselves.

With the revelation of the Morning Call, of Allentown, Pennsylvania, that the local Newchurch bishop, Edward Cullen, spent $2,000,000 for a vacation mansion and condominium on the expensive New Jersey shore, his Newchurchers are outraged. They are still reeling from his shutting down 47 of their churches. "Why are churches closing if the bishop is rich?" they are asking. More than 600 messages to the paper are calling for the ouster of the corrupt bishop. One dismayed couple sent a letter recounting their budget-straining efforts to contribute to the Church and send their children to a Newchurch school while maintaining their aging house. "Maybe we can ask the bishop for a loan for the $10,000 we need for our roof," they jibed.

Cullen's diocesan presbyters justified his wealth as "gifts." Of the whitewashed kind, no doubt. Diocesan presbyters criticized their laypeople for "snooping" in the bishop's property and records, even though these records are public records. They fell into line behind their corrupt bishop by passing a resolution supporting Cullen's "integrity." Of course they did. If they didn't, Cullen would have them stripped of their own positions in a New York second! But a vacation mansion and condo weren't enough. The diocese pay for a brick ranch house to serve as a retirement property for the 75-year-old bishop. He's not going to share it with his predecessor, however. Thomas Welsh will remain dumped in a retirement home.

Good Catholics, the corruption of Washington, D.C., doesn't hold a candle to corrupt hierarchy of Newchurch. From the top on down, these corrupt prelates deal in graft and crime as a daily business. When they aren't doing it themselves, they're abetting it in others and covering up their malfeasance. It's time for Benedict-Ratzinger and his illegitimate Newchurch leaders to resign and get out, so that Christ can restore His true Church.

Newchurch's Not-yet-dedicated New Oakland Cathedral Has Already Raised Ire
The Local Newchurch Bishop, Allen Vigneron, Misappropriated $190,000,000
On What Has Come Already to Be Known as "Vigneron's Vanity"

Even his predecessor, the radicalist John Cummins, said that it was unnecessary, but Allen Vigneron, the Newchurch bishop of Oakland, California, robbed his parochial schools in order to build his $190,000,000 monstrosity of a Newchurch "cathedral," rivaling Los Angeles archbishop "Mad" Mahony's grotesque "Taj Mahony." Cummins was known as "Kooky" Cummins as his Messes included Beatles ditties and bawdy theatre pieces.

Vignernon formerly achieved notoriety for his "Chinese Tea" Mess, in which Chinese tea is offered at the Offertory, and ancestors are worshipped at a pagan-style side altar. He was appointed Newchurch bishop of Oakland by JPII in 2003. (For further information, click on the TRADITIO Network's Novus Ordo Service Gallery. In just five years he misappropriated the gigantic sum from the coffers of a diocese that is sinking under the Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal. Newchurch can't find money to pay damages to the child-victims of its crimes, but it could find more than enough to build Vigneron's Vanity!

Oakland had a fine cathedral, St. Francis de Sales, built in the mid 19th century in beautiful traditional style, but Cummins used the excuse of a 1989 earthquake to bring in the wrecking ball, in spite of the fact that Protestants -- yes, Protestants -- were willing to raise the funds to save the cathedral. No, said Cummins, I want to turn the land into a mini-mall. It would have cost far less than $190,000,000 to repair the damaged historic cathedral. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the San Francisco Chronicle.

Don't expect any Traditional Latin Mass in this cathedral, however. You have to go to San Francisco for that, at a site that has for many years operated outside of the tentacles of the Modernist, corrupt, and "gay" archdiocese there. In Oakland's new cathedral, you get only the invalid Novus Ordo Mess in English, Vietnamese, Spanish, and Tagalog. You'd think that for $190,000,000 you could at least get a valid Mass -- but no. Many Oaklanders are livid over the obstruction to the vista at Oakland's Lake Merritt that Vigneron's Vanity causes. One irate Oaklander described the monstrosity in the following words:

The new cathedral is a hideous destructive intrusion on a stunningly beautiful arm of Lake Merritt. Now we have a new massive streetscape-destroying concrete bunker topped by a wacky, curvy glass tower. What the heck were they thinking? The Catholic [sic] Church has now rendered it a lifeless, Stalinist, anti-people piece of ugliness. Which tasteless nimrods approved this piece of nastiness? [It was Allen Vigneron.]

The Illinois State's Attorney stated in court on September 11, 2008, that the police had monitored a cocaine purchase by the informant from Layden one week previous.

Supreme Court Justice Charges Two U.S. Newchurch Cardinals with Obstruction of Justice
Burke Publicly Fingers New York's Egan and Chicago's George

From: The Fathers

The Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal that U.S. Newchurch bishops have tried to smother has burst into open flame again with the publication of a book on September 9, 2008, by Kerry Kennedy, the daughter of assassinated Senator Robert Kennedy, entitled Being Catholic Now. Kennedy interviewed Supreme Court Justice Anne Burke, of Illinois, who for two years served as Chairman of the National Review Board set up by the Newchurch bishops purportedly to investigate the sex crimes of Newchurch clergy and report objectively.

Instead, Burke accuses the U.S. bishops, particularly Newcardinals Edward Egan, of New York, and Francis George, of Chicago, of trying to cover up the true report, as well as the report of her predecessor in heading the investigation, FBI organized-crime agent Frank Keating. Burke charges:

The Board started having problems with individual cardinals and bishops who thought we were too aggressive. They got away with concealing crime, but just when you think these bishops are getting it, they turn around and do something that in any other enterprise would result in their own dismissal.

Justice Burke implicitly criticizes Newcardinal Ratzinger, now Newpope Benedict, who since 2001 has had to power to dismiss corrupt bishops and cardinals, but has in fact taken no action whatsoever against them. She also confirms that her predecessor, Frank Keating, a Governor, Department of Justice attorney, and FBI agent specializing in organized crime, a Newchurcher himself, was forced to resign as Board chairman because he publicly stated that the U.S. Newchurch bishops did not represent the Catholic Church, but were operating as a Mafia.

Justice Burke's strongest criticism is aimed at Newcardinal Francis George, whom the corrupt conference named as its current president. She states that George withheld from her the fact that he was sheltering in his own episcopal residence a presbyter accused of sex crimes. In a statement to the Boston Globe, George admitted that Justice Burke's charge against him was essentially true, that he had played word-games to conceal from her the truth of what he had done. His statement is reminiscent of ex-U.S. President Bill Clinton's contrived half-truth, "I never had sex with that woman!"

Justice Burke also fingered Newcardinal Edward Egan, of New York, because he was "offended by our insistence for independence" in the investigation. "I also think he was intimidated by the thought of fifty former FBI agents doing our questioning." Egan was transferred by JPII in 2000 to New York, after numerous accusations of sex crimes was made against Newchurch clergy in his former diocese of Bridgeport, Connecticut.

En route to his junket in Paris on September 12, 2008, Benedict-Ratzinger confirmed in a press conference that his "Motu" Mess was not intended for anything but a "small group," whereas "it is clear that the renewed liturgy [the Novus Ordo service] is the ordinary liturgy of our times." This statement is a denial of what he himself had written in 1993 about the Novus Ordo, that Hannibal Bugnini had "fabricated and manufactured" it in 1969 outside of Catholic tradition. In his press conference Benedict-Ratzinger also made the preposterous statement that there was "no opposition whatsoever" between the Conciliar-Bugnini Latin Mass of 1962 and the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Novus Ordo service. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Zenit.]

Good Catholics, the Novus Ordo service is a pig with lipstick. Anyone who has eyes and ears knows that. The two are animal and divine, black and white, night and day, a Mess and a Mass, invalid and valid. This Newpope is no "traditionalist." He always has been and remains a slave of condemned Modernism and the illegitimate Vatican II. Again and again he confirms that he is a German half-Protestant half-Newchurcher, who views his Great "Motu" Mess Hoax as a ploy to tap into the pockets of discontented Neocon Newchurchers.

Benedict-Ratzinger Turns from Summorum Pontificum to Laud the New Order
Professes His Loyalty to the Conciliar Pope Paul VI, Who Imposed the False Novus Ordo on Newchurch

From: The Fathers

Step aside Summorum pontificum. Enter In occasione. Showing again the flip-flopping that is so characteristic of the Conciliar popes, Benedict-Ratzinger is already turning away from his Great "Motu" Mess Hoax to profess publicly his unflagging loyalty to the false Novus Ordo Mess and Sakraments. In a new Letter dated September 8, 2008, Benedict-Ratzinger has praised the work of the Conciliar pope, Paul VI, who destroyed the true Mass and Sacraments of the Catholic Church by substituting for them an invalid New Order service and several false Sacraments. Benedict-Ratzinger himself always uses the invalid Novus Ordo service and for the first time, on July 7, 2007, officially proclaimed it the "Ordinary Rite" for Newchurch.

On the occasion of the 30th anniversary of Paul VI's death, Benedict -Ratzinger proclaimed "invaluable the legacy of the magisterium and virtues that he [Paul VI] left to believers and to the whole of humanity." The "magisterium" that Benedict-Ratzinger referred to is what he himself once called "fabricated and manufactured." It is the invalid and unCatholic Modernistic New Order, which in the last 30 years has permeated Newchurch liturgy, doctrine, and morality.

In his Letter Benedict-Ratzinger referred to his being a son of Paul VI, as it was that Modernist pope who named him archbishop of Munich and elevated him to the status of cardinal in 1977. It was certainly one of the ironies of history that since 1968 Newchurch had not been consecrating bishops because Paul VI had imposed an invalid New Ordinal which purported only to "ordain" bishops to a New Order, not to the Catholic episcopate. Therefore, Benedict-Ratzinger's status as a bishop, whether of Munich or of Rome, was brought into question.

In his Letter Benedict-Ratzinger also specifically referred to his acceptance of JPII's phony Newrosary, when he stated of Paul VI's death: "It was the night of the day in which the Church celebrates the Luminous Mystery of the transfiguration of Christ." The Most Holy Rosary of Our Lady has no Freemasonic "Luminous Mysteries," only Joyful, Sorrowful, and Glorious.

Good Catholics, Benedict-Ratzinger is no improvement on Paul VI. He is more of a proponent of Vatican II than Paul VI. He himself has said so, and his actions are completely Modernistic, though coated with a certain "traditionalist" crust to fool the clueless Newchurchers. Thus, Benedict-Ratzinger is actually far worse than the benighted Paul VI, who knew and admitted the evil that he had done. In 1972 Paul VI had rightly called Vatican II the "smoke of Satan." His closest friends reported that in the days before his death, Paul VI essentially went mad, wandering around his castle screaming, Credo, credo. Perhaps at the end his nostrils were justly filled with the sulphurous odor of the infernal master to whom he had sold out, under his own signature, the formerly Catholic Church.

He Can't Figure out Why His Own Newchurchers Are Attacking Him for Supporting Illegal Aliens
Tobin Whined to the U.S. Conference of Catholic [sic] Bishops
That He Had Received Hundreds of Letters Condemning Him for Advocating Crime

Thomas Tobin, the Newchurch bishop of Providence, Rhode Island, didn't expect his Newchurchers to rise against him when he publicly advocated that the United States government stop raiding businesses, including Newchurch businesses, that were reported as harboring illegal aliens. Tobin whined that he has been inundated with hundreds of "disturbingly vitriolic," even "vile and violent," letters, E-mails, and faxes from his own Newchurchers, pillorying him for encouraging law-breaking. Well, Tobin, what did you expect? That your Newchurchers would wimp out on this hot political topic, as they do on abortion, "gay" marriage, and other immoral practices? Illegal immigration turned out to be the straw that broke your back.

One Newchurcher publicly called Tobin "a traitor to the nation" and told him to "to get the hell out of the country." Now there's a thought. Maybe we can get rid of all the unCatholic Newchurch bishops that way! Tobin seemed particularly stung by one of his Newchurchers who told him:

Stop your whining about illegal "immigrants." Grow up and stay out of the politicking business or get out of the Church.

Another Newchurcher claimed that the bishop had deserted Christian morality:

You are protecting people who are here illegally and committing crimes. Do you honestly think Jesus would forgive these illegals for stealing? They are [unrepentant] sinners.

Even Tobin's own governor has flipped this immoral bishop off. Donald Carcieri has ordered a crackdown on rampant illegal immigration in Tobin's own state of Rhode Island, where Tobin has been supporting the crimes, even encouraging his own presbyters to break the law. [Some information for this Commentary was provided by the Providence Journal.]

Good Catholics, would you believe that the clueless Neocon Newchurchers call this guy "traditional"?! The Newchurch bishops have been caught again with their cassocks down. You see, when they're not assaulting and raping Newchurch children, or covering up presbyters who do, these bishops are harboring illegals. Their Novus Ordo temples and hospitals have been caught robbing from their citizen Newchurchers and converting monies to harbor illegals. No wonder the Newchurchers are up in arms against Tobin and partner-bishops in crime!

U.S. Newchurch Bishops Ask U.S. President Bush to Forgive Their Sins

From: The Fathers

The Newchurch bishops of the United States on September 10, 2008, having been caught harboring illegal aliens in their Novus Ordo temples and hospitals, have called on U.S. President George Bush to forgive their sins and stop immigration raids for illegals so that the bishops won't be embarrassed in the future by being exposed as law-breakers.

In recent months the Department of Homeland Security's Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) agency has stepped up raids on workplaces, including Newchurch sites suspected of employing illegal workers. In a single raid in Mississippi last month, some 595 illegal immigrants were arrested by ICE agents. The Newchurch bishops in their statement whined:

The sweeping nature of the raids -- which often involve hundreds of law enforcement personnel with weapons -- strike fear in illegal immigrants.

That is exactly what they are intended to do. If the law-breaking Newchurch bishops are suborning illegal immigrations the way they are suborning the assault and rape of Newchurch children, those bishops should be rounded up and thrown into the slammer themselves as co-conspirators!

Just when you think that Newchurch couldn't possibly sink deeper into immorality, something worse shows up. Jean-Claude Turcotte, the Newcardinal-archbishop of Montreal, Canada, has granted one of his sex-criminal presbyters full tuition for a law degree: $20,000 per year. Philippe de Maupeou, one of Turcotte's presbyters, who was convicted in early 2008 after he pled guilty to the sexual assault of an 8-year-old girl, was given the gift of a full scholarship to St. Paul University in Ottawa. You see, Maupeou is still in "good standing" with the Newchurch diocese after his disgusting crime against this girl, with reports already circulating that he assaulted yet another girl. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by CJAD News.]

Good Catholics, a lot of hardworking Canadian young people would love a "scholarship" like that! How immoral has Newchurch come that this offal presbyter should get a payoff from Turcotte, instead of getting a kick in the posterior and being stripped of his clerics and being cast into the Biblically-appointed outer darkness to do penance for the rest of his life? Assaulting an 8-year old girl! How low can Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch get? Believe us Fathers, it will get a lot lower before the Just Lord will sweep away these immoral prelates to the place where they will be weeping and gnashing their teeth!

Noted Protestant Television Show Claims that Newchurch Denies Christ as the Only Way

From: Joseph

I don't generally watch the Jack Van Impe television show, but one day I decided to see what he was up to now. It seems that he had gotten a lot of requests to repeat a show that he ran in July 2008, which was entitled "Christians Seduced?" According to Van Impe's statistics, 75 per cent of today's Evangelicals now preach the false doctrine that there are other ways to Heaven besides Jesus Christ. In that group he included Newchurch since Vatican II!

Newchurch Cardinal Caught in Lie about "Gay" Messes
Far from Being Shut Down, They Are Being Continued with His Approval

From: The Fathers
Cormac Murphy-O'Connor

Portrait of a Liar
Newchurch's Cardinal Primate of England & Wales Cormac Murphy-O'Connor
He Told Newchurchers that the "Gay" Masses Would Stop
Instead He Allowed Them to Continue without Missing a Beat!

After a flurry of complaints from Newchurchers, the Newchurch Cardinal Primate of England and Wales, Cormac Murphy-O'Connor made a false announcement in December 2007 that there would be no more "Gay" Messes sponsored by the Newchurch archdiocese of Westminster. Murphy-O'Connor, thus, lied to his Newchurchers as simultaneously he allowed bimonthly "Gay" Messes for the "Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Trangendered, and Queer Community" to continue. Investigators discovered that the Messes were not suspended even for one Sunday!

In February 2007 O'Connor had formally authorized "Gay" Masses in London to continue indefinitely in Our Lady of the Assumption Newparish as part of the archdiocese's "pastoral outreach to homosexual people." The cardinal asked the Anglican Church to allow his church the "honor" of hosting the "Gay" services instead of the Anglican Church of St. Anne and approved a roster of Newchurch presbyters to simulate the Novus Ordo service there.

The Messes are continuing to be used to undermine Catholic moral teaching and as a platform to promote the homosexual political agenda in Newchurch. "Gay" couples are congratulated during the course of the Mass for having recently contracted "civil unions." The Protestant Bidding Prayers, which were imported into the Novus Ordo service by its fabricator, the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, including one asking God for blessings "for all who have entered into civil partnerships during this past month, and for all who are keeping their first anniversaries around this time: that God will preserve them in love and faithfulness."

Catholic Voice, a Top Traditional Catholic Periodical, Is Released

From: The Fathers

One of the best traditional publications around is the quarterly Catholic Voice. This 16-page quarterly publication is unassuming in format, but contains the best no-nonsense traditional Catholic doctrine available. Its articles are not incoherent and longwinded, as are those of the Neocon Newchurch periodicals, but pithy and clear. Catholic Voice touches upon current events that have a doctrinal significance and provides explanations of traditional Catholic theology, the Mass, and the Sacraments. This mix is evident in the current issue (September 2008)'s topics:

Unlike so many of the Neocon and Semi-traditional (at best) periodicals, this one is free, though a small donation of $10 would be appropriate to support the cost of a subscription.

Another Modernist Encyclical Letter Set to Be Issued from Benedict-Ratzinger

From: The Fathers
John XXIII Sings Encyclical Letter

John XXIII Signs His Encyclical Letter Pacem in Terris
On April 11, 1963, the First of the Conciliar Era
Benedict-Ratzinger Is Set to Issue Another "Social Message" Screed
On the Favorite Topic of the Modernists: Love -- And Not of the Biblical Kind!

Inside reports from Newrome indicate that Benedict-Ratzinger is going to subject Newchurchers to yet another one of his lengthy and tiresome encyclical letters by the end of September 2008. He is going to resume his treatment of charity or, as Newchurch prefers to call it, love. This encyclical letter ought to be quite "oecumenical," as he has invited any number of heretics to his Castle at Gandolfo assist him with it. Reports have it that the title will be Caritas in Veritate. (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 "Love or Charity.")

The encyclical letter's subject matter will not be Catholic doctrine, but "the world's major social issues." Ironically, it will challenge Newchurchers to "recognize and then confront the social evils of our day." Chief among these social issues -- a topic that Benedict-Ratzinger will not address in this Modernist-slanted document -- is Benedict-Ratzinger's own incompetence in recognizing and confronting his own complicity in the rape of Newchurch children by his cardinals, bishops, and presbyters.

The encyclical letter will not refer to the dogmata of the Council of Trent, but rely instead on the Modernistic philosophy of the post-conciliar popes Paul VI and JPII. It is expected to have a heavy dollop of political "greenism." Newchurchers undoubtedly be harangued about "global warming," which, although swallowed hook, line, and sinker by Benedict-Ratzinger, is coming under increasing fire in the scientific community.

Good Catholics, one completely daft source made the following incredible statement: "Benedict shows us why so many observers regard him as the world’s leading moral voice, and one of the most insightful and profound social/political thinkers of our day." Such a statement truly boggles the mind, being made of the Church's most immoral man, being responsible as its leader for the Church's continuing crime-wave, the leader who persists in keeping in power prelates who are themselves child-rapists and who appoints bishops who are open advocates of sodomy, like San Francisco's George Niederaurer.

A Mass by Any Other Name Does Not Smell as Sweet

From: Ken

Dear Fathers:

I keep hearing the Traditional Latin Mass being referred to as the "Extraordinary Form." What is behind this new name?

The Fathers Reply.

It is all part of Benedict-Ratzinger's Great "Motu" Mess Hoax. For the first time, the Novus Ordo service, which in 1993 Benedict-Ratzinger himself wrote was "manufactured, fabricated," essentially invalid, was elevated in July 7, 2007's Summorum pontificum to be the "Ordinary" rite of Newchurch. At the same time, the Traditional Latin Mass, which had been canonized for all time by a dogmatic council and a saint-pope, was degraded to "extraordinary" status. The use of the "Extraordinary Form" terminology is a neologism, not to say an outright denial of Catholic dogmatic teaching. Moreover, the Neocon Newchurchers, lemmings as they are for anything "Ratz," have jumped on the Novus Ordo bandwagon and started using the phony new term almost exclusively.

Newchurch used to use the term "Tridentine" Mass, which is itself erroneous. Neither the dogmatic Council of Trent or Pope St. Pius, who carried out its directives, used that term. The Traditional Latin Mass antedates the Council of Trent (1545-1563) by more than a millennium. It was the Traditional Latin Mass that the Council and Pope St. Pius V canonized in perpetuity. The Traditional Latin Mass is regarded in Sacred Tradition as being passed on in all its essentials by St. Peter, the first pope, to the Church. This is the Catholic Church's most venerable rite, with a history of unbroken use far longer than that of any Eastern rite, at whose elaboration the Apostles themselves worked. It reached its complete perfection with Popes St. Damasus (fourth century) and St. Gregory the Great (sixth century).

Nor is the Traditional Latin Mass is the same as the Conciliar-Bugnini Latin Mass of 1962, the so-called "Extraordinary Form" of the New Order. This is the form that Benedict-Ratzinger himself said was "fabricated, manufactured." It includes major revisions in 1951, 1956, and 1960, introduced by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, who later fabricated the invalid Novus Ordo service of 1969.

Will Newchurch Archbishop Niederauer Shut Down "Catholic" Homophile Mayor Gavin Newsom?
Of Course Not: Newchurch Politicians Are Allowed to Be Openly Pro-"gay" and Pro-abortion

From: The Fathers
Benedict-Ratzinger and George Niederauer

Benedict-Ratzinger, Who Since 2001 Has Allowed a Rampage of Sex Crimes in Newchurch
Embraces George Niederauer, Whom He Appointed Newchurch Bishop of San Francisco
Niederauer, Notorious for His Own "Gay" Messes and His "Gay" Newparish
Remains Silent on "Catholic" Mayor, Gavin Newsom, Who Publicly Opposes
California's Defense of Marriage Constitutional Amendment

Gavin Newsom, Mayor of San Francisco and a Newchurcher, has announced that he will join a political campaign against Proposition 8, a constitutional amendment on the November 4, 2008, California ballot that would repeal "gay" marriage and would confirm two earlier votes of the people to reinstate marriage between only a man and a woman.

In 2004, Newsom provoked a constitutional crisis in California by granting marriage licenses to 4,000 "gay couples" in a case that led to the immoral 2008 rule of the California Supreme Court upholding "gay marriage." He has also supported the placement of adoptive children in the homes of "gay couples." Gavin Newsom is one of the sleaziest politicians around. He violated state law by recognizing "gay" marriage. He cuckolded his best friend by adulterizing her while her husband was out of town working for Newsom! Naturally, Niederaurer won't touch him; he actually supports him. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by CNA.]

Newsom is a subject of the Newchurch archbishop of San Francisco, George Niederauer. Why should the Neocon Newchurchers be surprised that Niederauer has not once condemned homosexual acts, or even acts of paederasty? He has not condemned his subject, Nancy Pelosi, the Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, who openly advocates abortion. Niederaurer publicly sponsors a "gay" Newparish in San Francisco and personally hands out the phony Novus Ordo cookie there to the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, a transvestite anti-Catholic group that dresses in Gothic make-up.

The Neocon Newchurchers made a big stink about the 2007 "Cookie" Scandal. Although the local press ignored it, the scandal made national television, where on the Bill O'Reilly Show, the Newchurcher host defended the homophile Newchurch archbishop's handing out the Novus Ordo cookie to anti-Catholic transvestites, garbed in their offense costume. So what did the Neocon Newchurchers do? As usual, sent letters and faxes to Benedict-Ratzinger, who threw them into the circular file. The Newchurchers then retreated into their corner, unwilling to take on Benedict-Ratzinger himself. So Niederauer is still the Newchurch archbishop of San Francisco. He continues to operate his "gay" Newparish. He continues to welcome the blasphemous "Sisters." He continues to all the Newparish's float in San Francisco's annual "Gay Pride" nudie Parade.

Good Catholics, Newsom and Pelosi may be two of the most immoral Newchurcher politicians around, easily rivaling U.S. Senators Kennedy and Kerry, but Niederauer takes the prize. And, remember, he was personally appointed by Benedict-Ratzinger, who supports Niederauer's immoral complicity with his usual silence in the face of evil.

Does a Catholic Really Have to Vote?

From: The Fathers
Voter's Guide

Serious Catholics Don't Need a Phony New Order Voter's Guide
They Exercise the Virtue of Prudence, Informed by Their Traditional Catholic Faith
Now a Group of Novus Ordo Presbyters Is Trying to Influence the Political Realm
With False New Order Theology and a Propaganda "Prayer"

Once again proving that it is more political than religious, the agents of the New Order in the United States are gearing up for their quadrennial campaign to coerce Newchurchers to vote -- their way? -- in the November 4, 2008, Presidential election. It seems that every four years political Newchurch in the United States (and elsewhere) gears up for its "not voting is a sin" humbug.

Now a Novus Ordo group called "Priests [sic] for Life," who are not even ordained priests, but presbyters "installed to preside over the assembly," has concocted a cockamamie "prayer," actually a thinly-veiled propaganda piece, which will probably be coming to Novus Ordo temples around the United States from September 1 to November 4 as part of an "Election Novena." (It appears that these presbyters failed arithmetic, as a novena is by definition a prayer of nine days, not 34!) This propaganda prayer contains such humbug as:

It appears once again that these Novus Ordo presbyters haven't read the Holy Gospels. The last statement in particular contradicts Scripture. Our Lord clearly stated: "My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would certainly strive that I should not be delivered to the Jews, but now my kingdom is not from hence" (John 18:36/DRV).

Catholic moral teaching, reflecting classical philosophy, certainly counts piety as a natural virtue, as a species of the cardinal moral virtue of justice. Piety is the virtue of paying one's debts toward parents and country. It can certainly be argued that in piety one should participate, as appropriate to his individual condition, in the government. For some, that may even mean standing for election themselves. For others, it may mean simply teaching their children about God's disposition for the universe.

Those who wish to vote certainly should do so, exercising another cardinal virtue, that of prudence, or practical wisdom. This is a function properly exercised by the laity, not the clergy. No layman should be asking a priest for whom to vote as a matter of religion. On the other hand, those who wish not to vote have no obligation under Catholic moral teaching to do so. Perhaps they do not consider themselves educated enough to vote. Perhaps they think that none of the candidates is deserving of a vote. They are certainly not forced under Catholic moral teaching to accept the "lesser of two evils." Even political bodies recognize the right of their members not to be coerced, but to abstain from voting.

If Newchurchers truly want to be citizen's of Christ's kingdom, they should look to Heaven. They should dump their allegiance to the phony New Order and betake themselves to a fully Traditional Latin Mass and the true Seven Sacraments of Christ's kingdom. They should reject false New Order doctrines and return to Catholic doctrine. They should condemn violations of God's moral law, especially among the Newchurch clergy -- from the top on down!

Indicted Presbyter Had Connections to Newchurch, an "Indult" Group, and the SSPX
Newchurch and SSPX Won't Talk; the "Indult" Group Had Already Fled to South America

From: The Fathers

Some presbyters really get around! John Broderick, arrested in February 25, 2008, has now been indicted on six counts of sex felonies and misdemeanors, and will be tried in November 2008. He is currently at large on a $100,000 bond. Broderick started out in Newchurch, then passed through a Newchurch "indult" society, then ended up loosely associated with the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX).

Broderick was installed as a presbyter in Syracuse, New York, in 1989. Newchurch appointed him to be pastor of Our Lady of Sorrows in Vestal from 1994 to 1996. In 2000 he transferred to a school run by the Society of St. John the Evangelist of Scranton, Pennsylvania, then approved as an "indult" organization by the discredited former Newchurch bishop there, Jimmy Timlin. After Timlin retired, the once highly-praised Newchurch "indult" group was exposed as a venue for embezzlement and sex crimes, and its remaining clergy mostly fled to South America.

According to an article in the Watertown Daily Times of February 28, 2008, an official SSPX publication that reports on developments at SSPX sites stated in its December 2007 issue that Broderick assisted in blessing the Holy Name of Jesus Academy in Messena, New York, run by a group of Dominican Sisters managed by the SSPX. The academy was opened in September 2007 on a property of just over 160,000 square metres, which was purchased for $840,000. The school has 50 children through the seventh grade.

Both the Newchurch diocese of Syracuse and the SSPX in the United States apparently have avoided any responsibility for the man. The SSPX won't even talk about the incidents. Says New York City attorney John Aretakis: "There are a lot of church groups who have known about this guy and are just passing the buck. There's a lot of people that have a lot of questions to answer." Broderick was put on leave twice by Newchurch for giving alcohol to children aged 5 to 11. Then reports of his sex crimes came to light. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Watertown Daily Times.]

U.S. Vice Presidential Candidate Palin's Sect Stands against Homosexual Acts

From: The Fathers

Standing up for Biblical principles, U.S. Republican Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin's conservative Christian church is promoting a conference that promises to convert "gays" into heterosexuals through the power of prayer. Palin herself is staunchly anti-abortion, opposing exceptions for rape and incest and opposing "gay" marriage. She even goes beyond that to oppose the cop-out of spousal "rights" for "gay couples."

Focus on the Family, a national Christian fundamentalist organization, is conducting the "Love Won Out" Conference in Anchorage, Alaska, about 50 kilometres from Wasilla, where Palin was mayor. Early in her administration as Governor of Alaska, she supported a bill to overrule a court decision to block state benefits for gay "partners" of public employees. Consequently, Alaska's "gay" activists are not among her fans. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]

Benedict-Ratzinger's Organ Donation Card Sets off Furor

From: The Fathers
Organ Donation

Organ Donation: Is It Moral?
What Once Was Considered an Act of Charity before Vatican II
Has Become a Much Grayer Issue as Newchurch Deserts Catholic Morality
And Physicians Rush to "Harvest" Human Organs before Death Is Conclusion

L'Osservatore Romano has revealed, and the Italian Association of Organ Donors has confirmed, that Benedict-Ratzinger had signed up as an organ donor in 1999 when he was a cardinal. At the time he observed that he carried his membership card "with my personal details on it" at all times. The revelation has set off a furor in Italy and elsewhere.

Currently there is a raging battle in the medical profession about when death occurs. Two competing criteria are "brain death" and "cardio-circulatory arrest." The only sure proof of death is the onset of rigor mortis and putrefaction, but by that stage organs cannot be "harvested." The Church, however, has recognized that, subject to individual medical conditions, the Sacrament of Extreme Unction (which Newchurch no longer has) may be administered up to one-half hour to three hours after "apparent" death.

Pope Pius XII, in a May 14, 1956, Address to the Delegates of the Italian Association of Cornea Donors and the Italian Union for the Blind, stated: "A person may will to dispose of his body and to destine it to ends that are useful, morally irreproachable and even noble, among them the desire to aid the sick and suffering." Yet that pope also foresaw the abuse of this procedure: "Public authorities have the duty to supervise their [the laws'] enforcement and above all to take care that a 'corpse' shall not be considered and treated as such until death has been sufficiently proved."

The problem is that in the post-conciliar period, with Catholic morality under attack in the New Order sect, many physicians themselves have admitted knowing of cases were a person has been dubiously declared "brain dead" because an organ recipient is waiting. The informed consent of the donor or his designees, which is an absolute requirement under Catholic moral teaching, is not infrequently cut short. In fact, the increasing use of "brain death" as a criterion, may have come into use in place of the traditional signs of death partly because of the desire to "harvest" organs for transplants into others, as well as for euthanasia.

Anti-Christian Riots in India Continue as Christians Are Forced to Convert to Hinduism
Benedict-Ratzinger Remains Silent as His Presbyters and Nuns Are Burned to Death

From: The Fathers

It can hardly be denied that Benedict-Ratzinger has so far embraced the False Oecumenism of Vatican II that he is now in the pocket of the pagans.

The continuing anti-Christian violence in Orissa has taken an even more vicious form with Hindu mobs forcing Christians to deny Christ and embrace Hinduism. If they do not, they are forced to destroy their own churches. Some, including Newchurch presbyters and nuns, have been immolated at torch-point. On September 5, 2008, the anniversary of the death of Mother Teresa, four Newchurch Missionaries of Charity were attacked by Hindus chanting anti-Christian slogans. The Hindu authorities have failed to halt the violence.

Even though presbyters and nuns have been set on fire and burned to death, Benedict-Ratzinger has said nothing and continues friendly relations with the pagan Hindu sect. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by CNS International.]

Now Benedict-Ratzinger Is Having Second Thoughts
But Is Allowing His Presbyter to Serve out His Full Term and Meanwhile Vote Pro-Abortion

Dear Fathers:

Newchurch has finally, after three years of inaction, taken notice of Raymond Gravel, the former male prostitute turned presbyter, who was allowed by Benedict-Ratzinger and bishop Gilles Lussier to stand for parliament. Gravel preaches and votes in favor of the legalization of abortion and "gay" marriage.

Apparently, Gravel went too far even for Newchurch when he opposed a parliamentary bill that would have created a separate offence for anyone who kills an unborn baby in the process of killing that baby's mother. Now Newchurch has told Gravel that, should he run for parliament in Canada again, it will laicize him. He has decided not to run for re-election, which indicates that if Benedict-Ratzinger had made his decision three years ago, Gravel would never have run in the first place!

Meanwhile, Benedict-Ratzinger has decided to allow Raymond Gravel, former male stripper and prostitute, pro-abortion presbyter, defender of sodomy, despiser of Jesus Christ, to remain for the rest of his term as a presbyter-parliamentarian. Benedict-Ratzinger will not laicize Gravel for publicly supporting and voting for abortion and "gay" marriage. Benedict-Ratzinger will not excommunicate Gravel for publicly teaching and advocating moral doctrines contrary to the Catholic Faith. Benedict-Ratzinger will not discipline Gravel's Bishop, Gilles Lussier, for originally encouraging him to run for parliament. Of course, Benedict-Ratzinger will not himself resign for his own approval of Gravel's candidacy. Not a chance!

Newchurch Nuns House "Dykes on Bikes" as Fellow Sisters

From: The Fathers

"We're part of a gang," the Newchurch Sisters of Charity of St. Johan Antida admitted with pride. In an "oecumenical" gesture, the Newchurch nuns in 2003 invited the Muskegon Motorcycle Gang of 100 to reside with them on their property in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, where they run the St. Joan Antida High School for Girls. The invitation was repeated in 2008.

This irreligious craziness, possible only in the Newchurch of the New Order, is reminiscent of San Francisco Newchurch Archbishop George Niederauer's giving the Novus Ordo cookie to the Sisters of the Perpetual Indulgence, wearing their punk Gothic face paint and clothing in the "gay" Newparish that Niederauer approves and sponsors.

Even Benedict-Ratzinger Can't Cover up the Fraud at Medjugorje

From: The Fathers

Newchurchers Venerate a Fraud at Medjugorge, So Now Says Benedict-Ratzinger
He Said the Same Thing in 1985 as Prefect of the Newchurch Doctrine of the Faith
And No One Paid Any Attention to Him Then Either
Conciliar Popes, by Their Own Doing, Are Powerless Paper-tigers

You can't help but feel a little sorry for Benedict-Ratzinger these days. Newchurchers didn't pay any attention to him in August 2008 when he tried to get the "Crucified Frog" removed from the Italian art museum. Now the Newchurchers aren't listening to him when he reiterated his 1985 decree as JPII's Prefect for the Doctrine of the Faith that Medjugorge is a fraud and banned pilgrimages to the site. Millions of Newchurcher fanatics who fell for the fraud are now hopping mad at Benedict-Ratzinger, who they were led to believe would "approve the "apparitions," where they claim the Blessed Virgin Mary has appeared more than 40,000 times at the Bosnia hillside site since June 25, 1981 and continues to do so to this day.

Well, the "Virgin" and Newpope seem to be at odds now! Benedict-Ratzinger has tried to impose "disciplinary measures" against one of his presbyters, Tomislav Vlasik, the spiritual director to the six purported child "seers of the apparitions," who claimed that the Virgin had told them Vlasik was a "living saint." The "living saint," however, was later exposed as having fathered a child with a Newchurch nun. The "seers" themselves have benefitted from the "Madonna gold rush," today owning expensive houses and cars. A former Newvatican exorcist has called Medjugorje "the work of the Devil." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the UK Daily Mail and CNS.]

Good Catholics, Benedict-Ratzinger, chases visionary fantasies, but refuses to take any disciplinary measures against his cardinals, bishops, and presbyters who rape Newchurch children. Moreover, the Church has always warned Catholics not to put their faith in apparitions and visions because the Sacred Scriptures tell us that they are more likely to come from Satan. St. John of the Cross, one of the Church's greatest mystics, warned:

The desire for private revelations deprives faith of its purity, develops a dangerous curiosity that becomes a source of illusions, fills the mind with vain fancies, and often proves the want of humility, and of submission to Our Lord, Who, through His public revelation, has given all that is needed for salvation.... Stay away from visions, apparitions, and miracles as much as you can. Be careful of visions, even when they are authentic.

Newchurch Reaps Bitter Fruit of False Oecumenism of Vatican II
Elephant-God Festival Begins as Newchurch Clergy and Laity Are Torched

Hindus Carry Pagan Festival Idol of Elephant-headed Lord God Ganesha
Meanwhile a Newchurch Parish and Orphanage with Its Clergy and Religious
Were Firebombed as Hindu Pagans Stood by Cheering
This Is the Bitter Fruit of the unCatholic False Oecumenism that Newchurch Embraces

The disastrous results of the unCatholic False Oecumenism that was pumped out by Vatican II (1962-1965) are piling up -- and the picture isn't pretty. In India, Hindu pagans hate Newchurch all the more, and their hatred is being taken out in recent days in firebombing a Novus Ordo church and orphanage, immolating its Newchurch clergy and religious, and cutting to pieces a pregnant woman.

On August 24, 2008, a Hindu mob set afire a Novus Ordo church and reduced it to ashes. For four hours the pastor and a nun were dragged into the street and beaten senseless while a dozen Indian policemen watched and did nothing.

On August 28, 2008, a large mob chanting anti-Christian slogans attacked a Newchurch orphanage. The presbyter there was set afire, but eventually escaped with severe injuries. One of the Newchurch nurses there was not so lucky; she was burned to death by the mob.

On August 31, when one Christian Indian woman, seven months pregnant, refused to deny her faith in Christ, an angry Hindu mob cut her into pieces in front of her year-old son and husband. The husband, when previously confronted by the Hindus, had not had the courage of his wife and had denied Christ. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by CNS.]

Good Catholics, JPII and Benedict-Ratzinger have sent "fraternal greetings" to these pagans on the occasion of their Diwali festival. The New Order's Mother Teresa watered down the Novus Ordo and combined it with elements of pagan Hinduism. Newchurch is simply digging its own grave all the faster. When is Benedict-Ratzinger going to condemn paganism and its elephant god instead of again pandering to criminals?

U.S. Republican Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin
Her Husband Todd and Four of Her Five Children
Sarah Palin Is Strongly Anti Abortion, Anti "Gay" Marriage, and Pro Death Penalty
She Is Expected to Appeal to Traditional Catholics and Neocon Newchurchbers
But Not to Liberalist Newchurchers, Who Overwhelmingly Support Abortion and "Gay" Marriage

U.S. Republican Presidential Candidate John McCain's nominee for his vice-presidential running-mate, Sarah Palin, Governor of Alaska, has stunned members of both political parties. Palin is the strongest anti-abortion candidate yet. She herself has five children, the last born in April 2008 with Mongolism, whom she did not choose to abort.

Sarah Palin's religious history is of note as well. Although she was baptized in Newchurch, she converted in the late 1970s when she was in her early teens to the Assemblies of God, the world's largest Pentecostal denomination, which has 12,311 churches in the United States, just a third less than the number of Newchurch parishes. The Assemblies of God has a vigorous mission program that converts 5,000 each day, whereas Newchurch missionary activity has virtually disappeared. What's the point for Newchurch, which holds that "we all worship the same god"?

There is quite a bit of political irony in this nomination for Newchurchers. Palin, though an Evangelical Protestant, should appeal to traditional Catholics and conservative Newchurchers because of her strong anti-abortion stance. Most Newchurchers, to the contrary, will probably go for the Democratic vice-presidential nominee, Joseph Biden, a Newchurcher, who is pro-abortion and pro "gay" marriage. It just goes to show that the appellation "Catholic" means nothing in the political area. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by NCR and the Los Angeles Times.]

Newchurch Is Close to Closing the Archdiocese of Dublin, Ireland
Attendance at the Invalid Novus Ordo Service Has Sunk Well Below 10 per Cent

From: The Fathers
Diarmuid Martin

Diarmuid Martin, Newchurch Archbishop of Dublin, Ireland, Preaches to an Empty House
Vatican II and Its New Order Have Devastated Once-Catholic Ireland
Well Below 10 per Cent of Newchurchers Now Attend the Invalid Novus Ordo Service
And Martin May Have to Close Many of Dublin's Novus Ordo Temples

Who would have believed it? Ireland, one of the most Catholic countries in Europe, has sunk so far since Vatican II (1962-1965) that it is about to close the doors on the churches in the Newchurch Archdiocese of Dublin, as the formerly Catholic Irish have returned to the paganism that they previously embraced. Now the Irish go for abortion, divorce, and "gay" marriage almost more than any other European country.

For the island's 1,000,000 Newchurchers, no longer Catholics, the New Order Archbishop of Dublin, Ireland, Diarmuid Martin, "installed" in 2008 -- count them -- a class of three Novus Ordo seminarians. Even twenty years ago, before the devastation of the Council had reached the current level, there were 100 Novus Ordo seminarians. Kilkenny has had no Novus Ordo seminarians for over 15 years. Before the Council, Ireland had such a superfluity of Catholic priests that it exported many of them to Glasgow, England, and the United States.

No longer. Newchurch in Dublin, and Ireland as a whole, are experiencing a manpower crisis that may shortly see Martin close the doors of the churches in the diocese. Already most convents and monasteries have been sold and converted into apartment buildings. The Christian Brothers have given up their schools because there are hardly any brothers left. You see, the men that flooded to traditional seminaries before the Council to become priests do not want to become phony Novus Ordo presbyters, who are not ordained, but merely "installed to preside over the assembly of the people." Attendance at the invalid Novus Ordo service has sunk to well below 10 per cent.

Many are blaming JPII and Benedict-Ratzinger for bring on many of the difficulties. They have sat by in silence twiddling their thumbs while their cardinals, bishops, and presbyters have been "diddling" children. JPII's 1979 visit turned out hundreds of thousands of Newchurch shills, but it was simply the propaganda exercise of a dying Newchurch. Shortly thereafter, two of JPII's most prominent front-men, a bishop and a presbyter, were exposed as having bastard children. The reputation of Newchurch is close to zero, and Benedict-Ratzinger's cover-up has driven the final nail in the coffin as far as Ireland is concerned. The errant in question bishop admitted that Ireland had become "to a very large extent de-Christianised." [Some information for this Commentary contributed by the UK Independent.]

Benedict-Ratzinger's Cardinal and Bishop Implicated in Sadomasochistic Sex Ring
Italian Newchurchers Are Asking: What Did Benedict-Ratzinger Know and When Did He Know It?

From: The Fathers
Ennio Antolelli

Cardinal Ennio Antonelli, Whom Benedict-Ratzinger Personally Appointed
To Head His Pontifical Council on the Family
Has Been Implicated in the Cover-up of a Sadomasochistic Sex Ring
Including Several of His Presbyters -- and His Own Auxiliary Bishop
Benedict-Ratzinger Lied on His June 2008 American Junket that He Would Purge His Sex Criminals
Many Newchurchers Are Now Beginning to Wonder: Is Newpope Guilty Himself?

2008 has been a banner year for the imprisonment of Newchurch child-rapists in Italy. The most notorious case so far has been that of Newpope's own appointee as President, ironically, over his Pontifical Council for the Family, exposed as an accessory after the fact of the rape of children. When in June 2008 six children had publicly accused presbyter Roberto Berti of sex crimes against them, Cardinal Ennio Antonilli, then Archbishop of Florence, refused to take any action against the criminal presbyter, but instead halted the diocesan process and coerced the victim children's families to silence.

The Florence newspaper Il Firenze has reported that Benedict-Ratzinger personally appointed Antonelli to his Pontifical Council on the Family with the apparent intention of getting him out of Florence. This is a well-known tactic of corrupt prelates, including Benedict-Ratzinger himself: promoveatur ut amoveatur. Thus, Benedict-Ratzinger himself could well be viewed as an accessory after the fact. And it wouldn't be the first time for Newpope.

In another notorious case, Newchurch Bishop Claudio Maniago, of Florence, was accused to police by two presbyters and others of participating in sadomasochistic orgies and covering up the crimes of a fellow sadomasochist presbyter who had raped twenty girls. A prostitute corroborated these accusations, stating to an Italian court that he had personally participated in a sadomasochistic "group encounter" with Maniago and five Newchurch presbyters. Maniago had also paid off the prostitute for his silence with money from his personal bank account. Italian police have confirmed these accusations, yet Maniago remains a bishop in Florence, and Benedict-Ratzinger hasn't laid a finger on him.

In yet another notorious case, a Newparish presbyter in the City of Rome, Ruggiero Conti, was turned in to civil authorities by his fellow presbyter in the same parish. The latter turned over to Roman civil police a mountain of evidence against Conti for seducing and then assaulting children to Porto Santa Rufina bishop Gino Reali. To the surprise of those who knew what was going on, Reali gave the rapist a slap on the wrist and suspended the courageous presbyter reporting the crimes! It should be no surprise, however, as Newchurch bishops are not concerned with justice, only covering up the most dastardly crimes.

In contrast to the inaction of Benedict-Ratzinger and his ecclesiastical courts, the Roman civil authorities arrested Conti on June 29, 2008, and threw him in jail. The Roman civil police investigated and eventually found seven children who had suffered sexual violence from Conti. On August 8, 2008, a Roman civil court determined that Conti perpetrated "an impressive number of cases of abuse of minors." Conti joins a record number of other Italian presbyters imprisoned for child rape for as much as eight years. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Il Firenze and Corriere della Sera.]

Good Catholics, it appears that Benedict-Ratzinger lied to the Americans during his April 2008 junket to the United States. He promised the world then that he would not allow sex criminals to remain in Newchurch. Yet many of these 2008 cases occurred in Rome itself, of which city Benedict-Ratzinger claims to be bishop. The Roman Julius Caesar, when his wife was involved in a scandal, said, "Caesar's wife must be above suspicion" and divorced her. It is long past time for Catholics to divorce Benedict-Ratzinger as their pope. The proverbial "smoking gun" that forced U.S. President Richard Nixon out of office is getting very near this corrupt pope.

How Can You Get through to Newchurchers?

From: Renee

Dear Fathers:

Thanks in part to following the weak and irresponsible example of the Newchurch hierarchy, from Benedict-Ratzinger on down, millions of Newchurchers may forfeit their salvation. What is truly troubling, however, is that they are ignoring the numerous warning signs that been given over the past 45 years. They would rather mock traditional Catholics such as myself than admit the obvious. How do you get through to such individuals, overcoming the poor example set up by the Newchurch "men of the cloth," who seem to have a far more greater fear of man than of God?

The Fathers Reply.

We're not sure that you do "get through" by any human means. All too many of them seem to have retreated to a place where reason cannot reach them. Adherents of the unCatholic New Order have so often blinded themselves to its falsity and corruption that they are now almost incapable of discerning the truth. It seems that only God Himself and prayer can reach them.

Padre Pio's Successor Out of Control as Fratello Metallo Screams out Satanic Music

From: The Fathers
Fratello Metallo

Newchurch "Monk" Cesare Bonizzi Pictured with His Inspiration
Bonizzi, Known as "Fratello Metallo," or the Heavy-metal Friar, Screams out Satanic Music
And Belongs to the Newchurch Doppelganger of Padre Pio's Capuchin Order
Of course, When Padre Pio Was a Member, It Was Traditional and Sang Gregorian Chant!

Friar Cesare Bonizzi, better known to Newchurchers as Fratello Metallo, the Heavy-metal Friar, screams out his Satanic music in downtown Milan. Bonizzi is the lead singer in an Italian heavy-metal band. When he performed at Italy's "Gods of Metal" festival, he demonstrated clearly who his god is. His libretti focus on sex. [Some information for this Commentary was supplied by Reuters.]

When is the indolent Benedict-Ratzinger going to get off his derriere and get control of his crazy clergy? To date, he has utterly failed as a leader. Instead of cleaning house, he has himself become the biggest part of the problem, associating himself with schismatics, heretics, infidels, child-rapists, embezzlers, and perverts. Benedict-Ratzinger is so impotent that he can't even get a blasphemous crucified frog removed from an Italian art museum. He is simply laughed at as "the pot calling the kettle black"! May God soon get rid of the post-conciliar poor excuses for popes and give us another Pope St. Pius V or Pope St. Pius X!
