The Neo-SSPX's Superior General, Bernie Fellay, is learning that when you play with the Devil, you can be stung by his pointed tail from the rear! In a remarkably-revealing speech on June 18, 2011, Fellay revealed that, far from making progress, his "negotiations" with Newchurch have resulted in further penalties against his Neo-SSPX.
Fellay revealed that just last September 2010, an SSPX presbyter-priest was excommunicated after he left his former Newchurch order. This excommunication was confirmed by Benedict-Ratzinger's Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life. The priest (actually presbyter: Fellay's Neo-SSPX now uses Novus Ordo presbyters) "lost the Faith by joining the formal schism." Informally, the Secretary of the Ecclesia Dei Commission, Guido Pozzo, poo-pooed the document when Fellay inquired about it, but the excommunication of the Neo-SSPX presbyter-priest stands.
Fellay revealed another example of Newrome's hostility to traditional Catholicism and Benedict-Ratzinger's Great "Motu" Mess Hoax. The only Trappist abbot in Germany requested from Benedict-Ratzinger to return not only to the "Motu" Mess, but to be able to restore the Rule and Constitutions that were in place prior to Vatican II. Although Benedict-Ratzinger was supposed to have approved the request, he in fact allowed his Secretary of State, Tarcisio Bertone, to nix the traditional arrangement.
Fellay further revealed that Benedict-Ratzinger's April 30, 2011, Instruction Universae Ecclesiae is actually a covert method of restricting any return to traditional Catholicism. We all know that the "Motu" Mess of 1962+ is not the Traditional Latin Mass, but, even worse, Newchurch no longer ordains priests, but only installs presbyters under the invalid New Ordinal of 1968. Benedict-Ratzinger ensured that Newchurch would have only invalid presbyters by providing in his Instruction that Novus Ordo seminarians may not be ordained in the traditional rite. Even if they were, their ordaining Newbishops do not have the power to confer traditional Holy Orders, as they themselves are invalid, not having been consecrated in the traditional rite, but only installed under the invalid New Ordinal. Fellay also admitted that paragraph 19 of Benedict-Ratzinger's instruction bars from even the "Motu" Mess of 1962+ the 95 per cent of Catholics (Fellay's estimate), who are "against the New Mass [sic]..., against the validity or the legitimacy."
In an even more startling revelation, Fellay, whose ambitions within Newchurch for himself after any "reconciliation" are well known, admitted that the truth of his reports is being challenged by traditional sites across the world. His modus operandi is to claim that facts that he doesn't want to admit to are "rumors." He claims: "We have no reason to hide what's going on with us." Sure, Bernie -- and elephants fly!
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I draw your readers' attention to my latest exclusive piece for the TRADITIO Network, in which I treat of Newchurch's destruction of traditional statues. For further information, click on Newchurch and the Desecration of Statues in the TRADITIO Network's Special Features department (Articles, Reviews, Sermon Series, Other).
A June 2001 newsletter from a traditional Catholic seminary commented on the lessons to be learned from the betrayal by two Judas monks of Abbot Leonard Giardina's traditional Christ the King Abbey in Cullman, Alabama, to the Newchurch of the New Order, which he had publicly rejected since the 1970s. Many traditional Catholics had donated large sums of money to this site, only to have their donations converted -- should we rather say "embezzled"? -- to serve the Novus Ordo. The lessons drawn in the newsletter include the following:
Are we then to hand over to these destroyers of our true Catholic Faith -- the Modernists and their leader since Vatican II, Josef Ratzinger -- the Catholic edifice that we have received from our ancestors: our dogmata, our valid Mass and Sacraments, our Catholic philosophy and theology, our Catholic schools and seminaries, our Catholic art and culture? Are we to throw down our Catholic standards because the Modernists, for their own perverse purposes, have conceded the pseudo-traditional "Mess of 1962," extraordinary or otherwise, simulated by invalidly-ordained Novus Ordo presbyters?
Traditional Catholics maintain these sacred treasures in the face of the millions who have abandoned their Catholic Faith to follow the Modernist Newchurch of the New Order, which has utterly destroyed what two thousand years of history has known as Roman Catholicism. These treasures we traditional Catholics maintain despite whatever onslaughts these Neo-barbarians may hurl against our comparatively small numbers.
Many traditional Catholics have forgotten the Biblical lesson that infidelity to God's law invites punishment. Therefore, it is not by compromising with the Modernists and accepting the Newchurch regime that we can expect to please God. He will punish us all the more. He does not need human numbers to accomplish His will. What he demands is a small number of those with a pure heart and a steadfast faith in Him. With this tiny seed He can do anything, as he did with the twelve Apostles, who became victorious against the tens of millions of the mighty Roman Empire! "Those who persevere until the end shall be saved" (Matthew 24:13/DRV), says Sacred Scripture, to which the corollary may well be: those who sell out to the false New Order religion shall be damned.
Newcardinal George Pell, of Sydney, Australia, in a June 19, 2011, statement on the lack of New Order "vocations," inadvertently revealed a scary future for Newchurch: the five current candidates in Sydney are either charismatics cultists or Opus Dei cultists. Pell revealed that these candidates are associated with the Neo-catechumenal Way, which is based in Protestant Charismaticism, or with Opus Dei, a cult organization that poses as "conservative" Newchurch while actually fostering Modernism and "oecumenism." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Australian Catholic [Sic] Weekly.]
Pell, who poses as a "conservative" Newchurch cardinal, has himself contributed to this craziness as one who has himself played the sycophant to false "oecumenism" and its acceptance of heretical religions and pagan sects.

Good Catholics, Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch of the New Order mocks God. It is not Catholic, not even if it tries to cover over a cesspool of Modernist doctrine and pigsty morality with a dollop of "Extraordinary Mess" Latin. Those who cooperate with it should be ashamed of themselves. They are a big part of the problem, not its solution. They are traitors to the Catholic Faith, who would be sharply criticized by Our Lord as "pusillanimous hypocrites."
Unlike Pope Pius XII, who in 1957 issued writs of excommunication against Communist China and its attempt to appoint pseudo-bishops to Catholic dioceses, Benedict-Ratzinger has consistently pandered to China's atheistic government, turning his back on his "underground" Newbishops and Newchurchers, who have been tortured and killed for his Newchurch of the New Order. In 1957 China took control of its Catholic Church, which was thenceforth administered by the atheist Communist government. Up until the last decade, though, this Patriotic Catholic Church had actually been more "Catholic" than the Newchurch of the New Order and had retained the valid Traditional Latin Mass and the valid traditional Ordinal.
After years of Benedict-Ratzinger's sellouts to the Communists, the Red Chinese government has now spurned Newpope and has announced that its Patriotic Catholic Church, the government-controlled "Catholic" Church, will install at least forty bishops "without delay" without Benedict-Ratzinger's permission. Like England's King Henry VIII, the Red Chinese government insists that it has the right to install its own bishops and that the Newpopes have no say in the matter.

An identity card belonging to Pope John Paul I-Luciani, who died mysteriously after just 33 days in the papal office, has been sold on eBay for some 5,000 U.S. dollars. Albino Luciani was elected on August 26, 1978, and died on September 28, 1978, amid rumors that he had been assassinated by his enemies. John Paul I was widely reported to have been deeply shocked when he discovered the extent to which Freemasons and the Mafia had infiltrated themselves into the Vatican. He was ready to name corrupt senior Newvatican figures who were involved in Freemasonry, the Mafia, and the Vatican Bank.
John Paul I was also reported to have been ready to restore the Traditional Latin Mass. Fr. Gommar DePauw, the founder of the Catholic Traditionalist Movement in New York City in 1964, reported that within days after JPI's election, the priest was summoned to the Vatican to participate on a commission to restore the Traditional Latin Mass. Unfortunately, JPI died before the commission could meet. It is entirely possible that JPI was to be the traditional pope prayed for, but was quickly assassinated by corrupt officials in the Church associated with Freemasonry and the Mafia.
The discrepancies in Newvatican's official account of the events surrounding John Paul I's death led informed sources to suspect an assassination. David Yallop's controversial 1984 book, In God's Name, suggested that the pope was in danger because of corruption in the Vatican Bank, inflitrated by Freemasons and the Mafia, with senior officials in the Newroman Curia being their accomplices. Specifically, Yallop accused Newarchbishop Paul Marcinkus, of Chicago, Illinois, who was regarded more like a gangster than a man of the Church, and Newvatican's then Secretary of State, Jean Villot, of being behind the pope's assassination. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Daily Mail.]
Good Catholics, it may be that the Church killed the intended restorer of traditional Catholicism, as it previously had killed the Christ. It is interesting that after John Paul I's death, the man whom he had selected to organize the restoration of the Traditional Latin Mass fell into obscurity. Most traditional Catholics today do not even know who the founder of their movement in 1964 was, Fr. Gommar DePauw, and they have forgotten the man who was to be the "traditional" whom they had prayed for, John Paul I. In 1988 his successor, John Paul II-Wojtyla, phonied up an "Indult" Mass, and in 2007 Benedict-Ratzinger phonied up a "Motu" Mess. Yet it was JPI who was going to restore the Traditional Latin Mass.
A prominent Newjesuit presbyter has been permanently barred from public ministry for a sex crime. A private investigator confirmed the child-victim's charges. Murray is now living under "house arrest" in one of the Newjesuits' facilities, probably in Maryland.
Murray became a prominent Novus Ordo "liturgist," who helped draft a 1990s document for the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops to introduce pagan African worship practices into Newchurch Messes in the United States. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
It all fits. Motarians are playing up to Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch of the New Order by trying to cover its sex crimes with their phony "Latin Mass," sometimes called the "Extraordinary Mass" of the New Order. According to an announcement from the Kansas City, Missouri, Newdiocese, "charismatics" or "traditionalists" or "something in between" are all invited for a "Motu" Mess shivaree, where Newbishop Robert Finn has been implicated in knowingly placing a sex criminal over children a paedophile presbyter who took "tons" of pornographic pictures of the children and published them on Facebook.
The Motarians are hosting the "Latin Mess" on June 29, 2011, to "promote unity" with the accomplice Newbishop. Do any of these sellout Motarians ever ask: "Unity in what?" A false unity with criminal Newbishops and presbyters? A false unity with the head of the Newchurch of the New Order, who actively covered up for his Newclergy and then put them back into positions where they could continue to assault and rape children? Rather, the Motarians should force the criminals out of office, from the top down.
In addition to the pornographer-presbyter, who was arraigned on June 16, 2011, the Newdiocese of Kansas City has been called out in recent days for two other celebrated cases of sex crimes by its Newclergy. A Newchurch pastor was exposed for perpetrating paedophiliac crimes over twenty years. The Newdiocese's Vicar General was also accused of sex crimes and was implicated in a cover-up, as he received cases of sex crimes by Newclergy and made recommendations about how to handle the cases -- or not. EWTN, the infamous Newchurch Charismatic Cable Network, will shoot footage of the Mess.
A virtual carnival of "Motu" and Novus Ordo presbyters has been gathered for this truly "Extraordinary Mess": one from the New Order "Motu" Fraternity of St. Peter, one from the New Order "Motu" Institute of Christ the King, and two from the Newdiocese's own Novus Ordo "Liturgy Commission." Perhaps, following the practice of Benedict-Ratzinger at his Newpapal audiences, there may be a few lions and tigers too! The Newdiocese announces that it is hoping for a full crowd under this "circus tent." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Reporter.]
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I have a friend that is thinking about sending his son to the so-called Franciscan University in Steubenville, Ohio. I told him it wasn't traditional, but actually quite charismatic in every way. Do you know of a traditional Catholic College in the United States or in the world, for that matter?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
The days of the great Catholic colleges and universities is over. We have entered the new Dark Ages, just as classical Catholics, like St. Benedict of Nursia, faced in the sixth century. You are exactly right about Steubenville, Ohio. It is a hotbed of Newchurch charismaticism and feeds the Newchurch's EWTN Charismatic Cable Channel.
There is no longer any Catholic college really worthy of the name. The few that might seem somewhat conservative on the surface are actually seething with Modernist Novus Ordoism, such as Ave Maria University in Naples, Florida. The best choice now, when possible, is a conservative secular liberal arts college. The best major is Classical Languages (Latin and Greek), which, in addition to giving the foundation for all Western secular and Catholic religious study, is usually one of the most conservative departments at an institution.
In addition to getting a thorough grounding in the classical languages, the student should emphasize philosophy (particularly classical and mediaeval philosophy), music (particularly early and classical music; knowledge of the organ is a plus), history (particularly ancient and mediaeval history), mathematics and the natural sciences, psychology and social sciences (one must be particularly careful here in choosing conservative courses), and oratory and rhetoric (sometimes called "Speech").
With a classical background the student will have a solid basis for an understanding of Western Civilization and its basis in the Classics and the truly Catholic Church.
In advance of his July 4, 2011, appeal to a German court against a stiff fine for giving a November 2008 interview in Germany for broadcast in Sweden, in which he questioned certain details of the establishment story about the commonly-termed "holocaust" of World War II, SSPX senior Bishop Richard Williamson has fired his third attorney, forced on him by SSPX Superior General Bernie Fellay, who wants to sell Williamson out to the New Order interests of himself and Benedict-Ratzinger. In fact, Williamson is a major obstacle to Fellay's proposed sellout of his Neo-SSPX to Benedict-Ratzinger's New Order sect.
Williamson recently fired Norbert Wingerter, a retired Novus Ordo attorney, whom Fellay had forced on Williamson to bury the case that is so embarrassing to Fellay and Benedict-Ratzinger. Although it seems incredible in this day and age that a man should be fined simply for expressing an opinion, particularly when such free speech is guaranteed in world's beloved United Nations Charter of Human Rights, the state of Germany seems as autocratic today in some ways as it was in the time of the Second World War. In fact, Williamson is not a "holocaust denier," as is frequently reported in the press. Rather, he has raised questions about certain details of the disputed point of secular history, questions that have to date not been fully answered. Yet he has been found guilty, by merely expressing an historical opinion, of the post World War II German "crime" of Volksverhetzung (ethnic incitement).
Williamson has been led on a merry ride for simply expressing some questions on a disputed point of secular history. His first attorney, Matthias Lossmann, selected by Fellay's partner in some dozen investment corporations, Maximilian Krah (of what has been termed Fellay's "Krahgate" Scandal), turned out to be an anti-Catholic liberalist unwilling to assert an enthusiastic defense of Williamson. Williamson then hired a young firebrand, Wolfgang Nahrath, from a rightist parliamentary party, who was prepared to defend the bishop enthusiastically.
But the idea of defending Williamson enthusiastically enraged Fellay, who, himself once an excommunicate of Newchurch, now threatened to "excommunicate" Williamson if the latter did not fire his freely-chosen attorney, Nahrath. You see, Williamson's exercise of free speech is a red-faced embarrassment to Benedict-Ratzinger, who is trying to play the "oecumenical" sycophant, and to Fellay, who is now a patsy for Benedict-Ratzinger, as Fellay is desperate to sell himself and his Neo-SSPX out to Newchurch in a deal that would make the ever-ambitious Fellay the Tyrant of the Traditionalist Wing of the New Order sect.
Williamson was forced to gave in to Fellay under threat, fired Nahrath, and hired Wingerter, who was acceptable to Fellay. Williamson's replacement for Wingerter is to be an as-yet unnamed law professor, who is supposed to give Williamson a more "enthusiastic" defense. This whole sorry matter is certainly a due chastisement of Fellay and of Benedict-Ratzinger, neither of whom has lifted their voices to defend Williamson's unalienable right of free speech. But Williamson may confound them both by becoming, in the end, like the courageous Cardinal Mindszenty, who fought the tyranny of the atheistic Communist government in Poland and became an exile for many years in the United States Embassy in Budapest [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Kreuz.]
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Some close friends of mine left Newchurch to join the Baptist sect. I disagree, but the answer of Newchurch's EWTN Charismatic Cable Network's presbyter was also: "It is better to attend some church than none."
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Of course this answer would make perfect sense to an heretical Newchurch presbyter! After all, Newchurch is now equivalent to a Protestant sect and is based substantially upon Modernist Protestant theology. In fact, in its "oecumenical" madness, Newchurch might just as well recommend that the fallen-away Newchurcher become a Mohammedan and murder Catholics who won't convert. Or become a Hindu and murder Catholics who don't worship Shiva. Everything irrational and unCatholic makes sense in the perverted Newchurch of the New Order.
The answer is to follow the Church that Christ founded and that Church alone -- what we now have to call the "traditional" Catholic Church to distinguish it from the Newchurch of the New Order, which falsely calls itself Catholic. If you don't associate with the one true Church, the rest is meaningless.
Any notion that Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch of the New Order is not going "gay" is rapidly falling under the weight of reality. Not only is Benedict-Ratzinger merging his Novus Ordo sect with the Protestant Anglican/Episcopalian sect, which on June 20, 2011, announced plans to promote open homosexuals into its bishoprics, but now Novus Ordo temples around the world are officially hosting "Gay" Messes. By the intervention of the Holy Ghost, all these Novus Ordo Messes are, of course, invalid because the fabricated Novus Ordo service is invalid. "God is not mocked."
The latest entry of Newchurch in the "gay" direction is an officially-sanctioned "Gay" Mess in the Newarchdiocese of Boston, Massachusetts, at St. Cecilia's Novus Ordo Temple. The Mess has been announced in support of "Gay Pride Month." When the Mess was originally announced for June 19, 2011, it sparked among conservative Newchurchers and was canceled by the Newarchdiocese, but now the "Gay" Mess has been rescheduled for July 10, 2011, sponsored by the Newarchdiocese's "Rainbow Ministry." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Boston Globe.]
Newchurch can't wait to push beyond the Novus Ordo service to the even more New Novus Ordo service. Like Protestants, these Newbishops just can't stop fiddling with their "liturgy."
The United States Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops' Committee on Divine Worship has announced that Novus Ordo diocesan bishops may permit the introduction New Gloria, New Holy Holy Holy (formerly called the Sanctus), and the New Memorial Acclamations (a complete Novus Ordo fabrication) in September 2011, instead of the formerly announced November 27, 2011.
The New Novus Ordo has been quite widely criticized in Newchurch, but the Newbishops are bound and determined to force their Modernistic will, taking a page from the Arch-modernist Benedict-Ratzinger. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.S. Conference of Catholic (Sic) Bishops.]
U.S. Congressman Anthony Wiener was caught sending "excited" nude photos of himself to unknown women on Twitter in a scandal dubbed "Wienergate," from which he was forced to resign. Now Newchurch has its own "Ratigate" in the person of presbyter Shawn Ratigan and his accomplice Newbishop, Robert Finn, of Kansas City, Missouri.
Presbyter Ratigan was found by police to have "tons of pornographic photos" that he had taken of young girls at the schools and churches where he worked. His accomplice Newbishop Finn knew that Ratigan was a criminal pervert and didn't report him to the police, but instead tried to hush the crimes up -- perhaps no surprise because Finn was a personal appointee of the "Paedophile Pope" Benedict-Ratzinger. Finn sent Ratigan on "retreat," then returned him to work with children, where he took more pornographic photos of children, and posted them on his Facebook page. According to court documents, detectives determined that many of the pornographic images "were taken in and around the churches and schools Ratigan has been associated with." Ratigan was arraigned on June 16, 2011.
When Newbishop Finn tried to do damage-control by appearing personally at St. Patrick's Novus Ordo Temple, the Newchurch parishioners screamed at him for three hours and said that they could never trust Finn or Newchurch again. They demanded Newbishop Finn's resignation, but Finn has indicated no intent to take responsibility for his actions.
Good Catholics, you would think that any moral person would want both presbyter Ratigan and his accomplice, Newbishop Finn, thrown into jail for a long, long time. But crazy Newchurchers actually demonstrated in downtown Kansas City not for the innocent children, but for the paedophiles Ratigan and Finn! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Kansas City Star.]
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I heard it said today by an SSPX priest that we are now in "Ordinary Time". As a traditional Catholic, I thought we were in the liturgical season of Pentecost, when the Sundays are named "after Pentecost." Isn't "Ordinary Time" a Novus Ordo term. Since when do SSPX priests use Novus Ordo terminology?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
This is another example of how the Neo-SSPX and its clergy under their leader Bernie Fellay are already going Novus Ordo. You are correct: "Ordinary Time" was a Protestantized invention of the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, Chief Architect of the Novus Ordo, and was introduced in 1969, together with the New Lectionary and the New Calendar -- the one that dumped more than 200 Catholic Saints.
Fellay's Neo-SSPX clergy is now getting so close to being Novus Ordo presbyters that they already have a Novus Ordo mindset. It is not surprising, therefore, that they use terminology that was concocted by the New Order. At this point they don't know the difference!
Those who had the privilege of attending Divine Office on Trinity Sunday, June 19, 2011, will have noticed the recitation or chanting of the Athanasian Creed at the Hour of Prime. The Athanasian Creed is the most direct of the three great Creeds of the Church, the other two being the Apostles Creed, used in various Sacramental rites and ceremonies, and the Nicaeo-Constantinopolitan Creed, used on Sundays and some other days at Holy Mass. Its concluding lines proclaim:
And they that have done good shall go into life everlasting, and they that have done evil, into the everlasting fire.
This is the Catholic Faith, which, except a man believe faithfully and firmly, he cannot be saved.
This Great Creed was recited or chanted at Sunday Office, but in 1961, in the second great wave of Bugnini's "moderizations" under John XXIII -- the first great wave of "modernizations" having taken place in 1956 under Pius XII -- the Athanasian Creed was eliminated except on Trinity Sunday.
This Creed, attributed to the Great Doctor of the Church and Defender of the Faith, St. Athanasius, was completely eliminated from Newchurch in January 1999, when its last remaining use, in the traditional Rite of Exorcism, was eliminated in the Novus Ordo. But, as St. Paul wrote: "God is not mocked" (Galatians 6:7/DRV).
Even Newchurch authorities now admit that Novus Ordo exorcisms don't work. Not only has the New Order done away with the traditional Minor Order of Exorcist, which every traditional priest still receives before he receives the priesthood, but Newchurch has also gutted and vernacularized what little remains of the Rite of Exorcism itself. No wonder Novus Ordo exorcisms don't work and, as even Paul VI admitted, the smoke of Satan has entered Newchurch, which is now possessed and no longer has a valid Rite of Exorcism to exorcise its demons. Talk about shooting oneself in the foot!
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
If a family member who is a member of the Novus Ordo such dies, may Traditional Catholics attending a Novus Ordo funeral, or are we obliged to stay away?

In essence, the Novus Ordo is a Protestant sect, so the principles that apply to attending non-Catholic services apply.

Presbyter John Corapi, presbyter-host-star of the EWTN Newchurch Charismatic Cable Network, who was exposed on March 9, 2011, in a letter from a former employee accusing him in a three-page letter of drug addiction and numerous sexual trysts with her and several other women employees, has resigned from the Newchurch presbyterate, saying, "I am not going to be involved in public ministry as a priest [sic] any longer.... I have been guilty of many things in the course of my life and could easily and justifiably be considered unfit to be engaged in public ministry as a priest [sic]. Newchurch authorities have deemed "credible" the charges of his immoral behavior. Apparently, his Newchurch "stardom" got the better of him. As one former follower pointed out:
I have been concerned recently by his change in appearance, with a dyed beard and eyebrows, closely-shaved head and very-tanned complexion. There may be medical reasons for such a significant change in appearance over twelve months, but one hopes and prays that the good father [sic] has not given into the temptations of vanity which accompany success on the scale that he has achieved and that he admits he was prone to prior to his reversion to the [New Order] faith.
Corapi joins EWTN presbyter-host-stars Scott Hahn and George Rutler in being associated with corruption of Catholic doctrine and practice by their full-throated support of the unCatholic New Order sect. Yet such is the craziness of the laity of the Newchurch of the New Order, which supports its clergy who rape children, that the corrupt Corapi has been defended by many Newchurchers, just as, in the secular world, immoral "stars" like Michael Jackson and Charlie Sheen, are defended by their fan(atic)s. These Newchurch cult followers and fan(atic)s claim that Corpai is the target of the Devil, without realizing that they themselves, in accepting the heretical New Order sect, have succumbed to the Devil far more than a few hosts on EWTN.
Good Catholics, even Paul VI-Montini, in a rare moment of inspiration, proclaimed in 1972, just seven years after the close of the Modernist Vatican II Council and just three years after the introduction of the invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Novus Ordo service: "the smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God," referring, according to his Chief Liturgist and Papal Master of Ceremonies, specifically to the Novus Ordo service. It is this invalid, heretical, and unCatholic service that the Modernist Benedict-Ratzinger has scandalously, for the first time in history, proclaimed as the "Ordinary Rite" of his Newchurch of the New Order. For further information, click on FAQ08: What Is the Authority of Vatican II? in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics).
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Is it a matter for confession if one goes to a Novus Ordo service? Is it a Mortal Sin?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Yes, since the Novus Ordo service -- it is not Catholic Mass -- is essentially a Protestant service with Masonic and Pagan elements added, it is a Mortal Sin to participate at it. You would confess the sin just as you would confess any Mortal Sin of actively participating in false religious service, e.g., a Methodist service. You are thereby committing a Mortal Sin against the virtue of Faith, causing scandal to true Catholics, and suffusing yourself with the odor of heresy.
It is a scandal that Benedict-Ratzinger is the first Newpope officially to call this invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service the "Ordinary Rite" of the Newchurch. No true Catholic can have any part of it, any more than they would of a Methodist service.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Is it true that the SSPX finances are in shambles under Fellay? I have heard he is closing chapels and retreat centers around the world. His finances are opaque, so who really knows? If this is correct, then Bernie Fellay seems to be an empty suit both theologically and financially. Maybe that explains why he kowtows to the Novus Ordo: he needs a bail-out package to keep the lights on!
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
We have consistently contended that not only has Fallacious Fellay substantially abandoned Archbishop Lefebvre's traditional Catholic principles in favor of a sellout to the Novus Ordo but also Fellay has been an ineffective and questionable manager of the Neo-SSPX's donations. In the last year or so, many SSPX members have become deeply concerned about the revelations that Fellay has engaged in collaboration in some dozen financial corporations with the Jewish fund-raiser and Dresden attorney Maximilian Krah. On September 27, 2010, Krah participated at an American Friends of Tel Aviv University fund-raising party, which featured a sacrilegious "auction of indulgences."
As you have indicated, Fellay has been completely secretive about his financial dealings on behalf of his Neo-SSPX. He has never rendered a public financial statement. Even Newchurch has rendered a public financial statement for several years now. If we had any connection with the SSPX, we wouldn't contribute one cent until Fellay produces a financial statement indicting how all the donations are being spent. A significant amount may be going to activities related to the Newchurch of the New Order. The would be intolerable for any true Catholic.
The Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA) at Georgetown University, of Washington, D.C., a Newchurch-affiliated organization, has admitted in a study published on June 3, 2011, that since Benedict-Ratzinger was elected Newpope of the Newchurch of the New Order, interest in things "Catholic," as measured by Google search-engine data, has tanked. Only Newvatican's own site and the site of the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops, barely make it into the top 4,000 most visited sites in the United States.
The study proves that since the election of Benedict-Ratzinger, searches for anything with the term "Catholic" in them have dropped significantly. The volumes have dropped year by year and have continued on a downward spiral to date. The decline is linear. Americans are significantly less likely to search for anything "Catholic" than they were seven years ago. The downward spiral of Newchurch under Benedict-Ratzinger has occurred not only in the United States but also in the five other countries studied: the United Kingdom, Germany, France, Australia, and Brazil, and in the five language groups studied: English, Spanish, French, Italian, and German.
Bucking the Newchurch downward trend are "traditional" Catholic web sites, like TRADITIO: The Traditional Roman Catholic Network, which has seen a skyrocketing 300 per cent increase in access over the same period.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Bernie Fellay, the Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X, parades himself around the world as a Newchurch bishop, while at the same time he keeps his followers truly on a Novus Ordo leash. Fellay, like a good Newchurcher, has accepted the Novus Ordo Protestantized worship service as the legitimate "Ordinary Rite" of the "Catholic" Church. He has dropped all doctrinal objections to it. In fact, he ordered Te Deums to be sung by his nincompoop clergy when the Protestantized "1962 Missal" liturgy was allowed a third-class berth out of sight somewhere in Newchurch. Effectively, Fellay has said that the Novus Ordo Protestantized worship service can be attended by his followers without committing the Mortal Sin that we all know it is.
The bulk of Newchurch considers the SSPX to be a schismatic cult. Should we be surprised, therefore, if, on eventually re-entry into Newchurch, the four SSPX bishops are barred from using the title of "bishop" by the New Order sect that Fellay now considers to be the One True Catholic Church? It would be poetic justice if Bernie Fellay, who has led his followers up a merry Novus Ordo dance, is meted out this treatment and dumped after selling out, just as the Judas monks of Cullman, Alabama, were. Fellay would bet getter treatment as an Anglican bishop!
To the United States Newchurch bishops, secular politics will be more important than continuing child rape by them and their presbyters when they meet in Seattle, Washington, on June 14, 2011. The Newbishops are hoping that their clueless Newchurchers will think that Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust is solved. It isn't.
There have been several recent cases in which Newchurch bishops failed to report or suspend presbyters credibly fingered as child rapists. The U.S. Newbishops are proposing no significant change to their 2002 failed policy, falsely called the Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People, which has resulted in the rape of more children in the intervening nine years. That charter was defective in that it did not penalize the rape of mentally-ill children or child pornographers among the Newchurch clergy. The Charter also lets paedophile Newbishops, who number over two dozen in the United States, off the hook as criminals, to experience only "fraternal correction" from their own ilk.
The Newbishops had promised that they would take a hard look at their failed policies in light of the condemnation by two Grand Juries of Newcardinal Justin Rigali, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, who they documented failed completely on his promise to take action. He was finally shamed into canning 37 presbyters, including the "monsignor" Head of Clergy, nailed as criminals by the Grand Juries. Such revelations have enraged citizens across the United States, as they have in Germany, Belgium, Ireland, Italy, and other countries.
The continuing incidents have led civil authorities to question whether the Newchurch bishops are complying with their own policies and whether there is any accountability for bishops who do not. There isn't. In the Newdiocese of Kansas City, Missouri, Newbishop Robert Finn admitted in May 2011 that that he allowed a presbyter who took pornographic photographs of Newparish girls to continue unabated with impunity. The presbyter is a convicted child rapist and has been re-arrested on child pornography charges.
"There's no accountability, and there's no transparent protocol. I have never seen the anger as deep and widespread as I have seen and heard and felt it these last three weeks. It's coming from people that I know of as very conservative, very devout, especially younger people," said one victims advocate.

A secret memorandum just revealed by WikiLeaks shows that after schmoozing Bernie Fellay and the other bishops of the Society of St. Pius X back in January 2009, Benedict-Ratzinger fired his senior staff who suggested that the four bishops be "unexcommunicated."
The secret memorandum indicates that on July 8, 2009, Benedict-Ratzinger fired Newvatican personnel who "had recommended the restoration of communion with a break-away Catholic movement [the SSPX] that included a Holocaust-denying bishop [referring to Bishop Richard Williamson, who in fact had not denied the "holocaust"]. The most senior of these personnel were Newcardinal Dario Hoyos, formerly president of the "Ecclesia Dei" Commission, and his deputy, Msgr. Camille Perl. Benedict-Ratzinger put the fate of the SSPX in the hands of a man who is opposed to the SSPX, William Levada, former Novus Ordo archbishop of San Francisco California, and prefect of the Congregation of the [New]faith.
It is not news that these two officials, beloved of the Motarians, were fired, but Benedict-Ratzinger tried to cover up the real reason under the cover-story of a "reorganization." It seems that Benedict-Ratzinger has become the world master of the lying cover-up, just as he has continued to do to this day with the tens of thousands of cases of child rape by his paedophile presbyers, Newbishops, and Newcardinals. Now the King of the Cover-up, Benedict-Ratzinger deliberately announced the firing of Hoyos and Perl on the first day of the G8 summit in Italy in an attempt to bury the story.
It is a complete myth that Benedict-Ratzinger is "traditional." He is just like his schizophrenic predecessor Paul VI, Newpope of the Novus Ordo, who praised the vernacular Mess one day and the very next day praised Latin. Benedict-Ratzinger has the same reputation: he talks "traditional" one day, and then the next day he does something like appoint a heretical presbyter as his newest Newbishop.
Francois Fonlupt was Novus-Ordo "ordained" a bishop (Newchurch no longer consecrates bishops, so its bishops are invalid under the New Ordinal of 1968) for the French Newdiocese of Rodez-Vabres, in southwest France. Fonlupt is a public heretic from the Catholic Faith. He denies the dogma of the Holy Eucharist and proclaims the Protestant heresy that Christ is present instead in the "congregation." He denies Christ's teaching on marriage and regularly performs bigamous "marriages" for those with a civil divorce. He's all for sexual immorality: condoms and contraceptives and, undoubtedly "gay marriages." He is described as the liberal's liberal. We describe him as the heretic's heretic.
And you Motarians, don't think that you're home free with Benedict-Ratzinger Great "Motu" Mess Hoax. Be advised that Benedict-Ratzinger's latest episcopal appointment is expected to cancel the "Motu" Mess in his diocese, which he publicly opposes. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Chrétienté Info.]
Lost in all the folderol of the "Motu" Mess, aka "Extraordinary" Mess, is the fact that Benedict-Ratzinger's proclaimed "Ordinary" Mess goes on as usual. Now, according to Newvatican's Instruction of April 30, 2011, all those who participate at a "Motu" Mess must publicly accept the invalid Novus Ordo service. No Catholic, of course, can do that, as it would be publicly adhering to heresy. Thus, those who attend a "Motu" Mess, because of this latest Instruction, can longer call themselves Catholics. They are now no better than Protestant heretics, courtesy of Benedict-Ratzinger.
On Sunday, June 2, 2011, the Novus-Ordo falsified feast of Ascension Thursday (which is, by Biblical prescription, celebrated on Thursday, the fiftieth day after Easter), at Clermont, France, a "Circus" Mess was performed (literally) under the "big top" of Circus Pinderby the presbyter of St. Luke Newparish. The Mess boasted circus clowns vested in Speedos and wild animals. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the La Conférence des évêques de France.]
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
The term of office of the Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X is 12 years. Bernie Fellay, now in his second 12-year term, has served almost 17 years as Superior General. This seems wildly excessive. Do the heads of Catholic religious orders have such a long term of office?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Absolutely not! A term of more than four years for a religious head is generally considered to lead to a personal rule and a personal tyranny. This principle is certainly exemplified in Fellay, who runs the SSPX like a monomaniacal tyrant, who answers to no one.
The Dominicans, for instance, following the wise constitution of St. Dominic, hold a General Chapter every four years and elect the Dominican Master at that time for one term. Even Archbishop Lefebvre understood that principle. He served as Superior General for a time only in an emergency and did not want any of the bishops to hold the office of Superior General.
Any child would know the dumb Newchurch Jesuits don't seem to know: you can't read infidel Scriptures from the pulpit. The latest fury started when presbyter-pastor Patrick Earl St. Peter's Newparish in Charlotte, North Carolina, announced that he would read the infidel Koran from its pulpit. The Koran is the "holy" book of the Mohammadans, which preaches the murder of Christians if they don't convert to Mohammed.
The reading was announced for June 26, 2011, during an invalid Novus Ordo service. Presbyter Earl had agreed to take part in an event called Faith Shared, in which Novus Ordo presbyters, Jewish rabbis, and Mohammedan imams would read their "sacred texts" in each other's "houses of worship." Instead, the ignorant Newjesuit presbyter created a firestorm of protest for his anti-Catholic proposal and was then forced to announce sheepishly that he was "ignorant" of the fact that even in Newchurch it was prohibited to read false Scriptures from the pulpit.
Presbyter Earl claimed to be responding to what Mohammedan imams and their congregations "have suffered just from the fear, the fear of what they call Islamophobia." Apparently, presbyter Earl is also ignorant that Christians are being murdered right and left by Mohammedan imams and their congregations in the Middle East, and thousands were murdered in the 9/11 attack on New York City. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic News Service.]
Good Catholics, the Newjesuits are the worst heretics and criminals in Newchurch. More than any other order, they have been caught with their cassocks down raping children. One entire Newjesuit Province had to declare bankruptcy because it couldn't pay off all the damage judgments against it for immoral actions. There is a long history of Jesuit corruption. In the 18th century the Jesuits were so corrupt that the pope suppressed the order for 40 years. Too bad none of the New Order popes have the guts to do the same now!
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Could you tell me whether getting a tattoo is sinful, and, if so, whether it is a mortal or venial sin? It think that tattoos look cool.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
And if it were "only" a venial sin, you would get a tattoo because it would mean "just" a long stay in the fires of Purgatory instead of an eternal stay in the fires of Hell? We are happy to clear up any doubt in your mind: not only is the practice of tattooing sinful, but it is a Mortal Sin, for at least three reasons:
Your vain desire to be "cool" by desecrating your body can end up by putting you in a very "hot" place for eternity! Repentance is difficult, since the harm has been done and cannot be undone. You must live with the shame of bearing the mark of paganism your entire life. No true Christian would think for a moment about doing such a thing.
After Benedict-Ratzinger pulled the Novus Ordo beatification of the Unbless John Paul II-Woytyla on May 1, 2011, and called a Third Assisi Syncretistic Conference for October 2011, Bernie Fellay decided that he had to shore up his popularity quotient among his Neo-SSPX members, who were deserting him because of his support for the Paedophile Pope and his New Order agenda. The politicians call it "damage-control," and that is what Fellay has become, not really a traditional Catholic bishop any more, but a Newchurch politician, who has publicly drolled at the prospect of becoming a full-fledged, recognized member of Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch of the New Order.
Therefore, Fellay has recently been appearing to distance himself from the always-Modernist Benedict-Ratzinger, criticizing his "beatification" of JPII-Wojtyla and his convoking a third Assisi conference, but never distancing himself from Newpope for his worst sins over the past thirty years: his constant support, under his personal signature, of paedophile presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust.
Most recently, Fellay has given the impression that his Neo-SSPX had ended its flawed "negotiations" with the New Order, but now it turns out that this impression is all a ruse to deceive his Neo-SSPX members into thinking that he is "traditional" once again. It is just a part of Fellay's pitiful attempt at damage-control. In a June 1, 2011, interview in Gabon, Africa (how far from the mainstream press can you get!), Fellay was forced to admit that far from ending "negotiations" to become a member of the New Order sect, "the contacts continue."
Even Newrome has exposed Fellay's mendacity. Fellay has always been claiming that he is trying to get Newrome to "reinterpret" Vatican II. However, on June 8, 2011, one of the officials of the Secretariat of State of Newvatican, Msgr. Guido Puzzo, pronounced: "It does not seem possible that there can be a challenge to the Second Vatican Council." So, Fellay's "negotiations" with the Novus Ordo sect, the sect that the SSPX's founder Archbishop Lefebvre bluntly called "not Catholic," are simply a veiled attempt to sell out to that New Order and its Modernist Vatican II Council. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Houvelles de France.]
As the first Protestant heretics join the equally heretical Novus Ordo sect, it is becoming clearer and clearer what that old Modernist leader of Vatican II, "Fr." Ratzinger, has as his vision for dismantling the once-Catholic Church. It is to become an oecumenical circus filled with Protestants, Novus Ordo heretics, and schismatic Motarians doting on an unCatholic "Motu" Mess of 1962+. Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch has completely lost any sense of Catholicism.
St. Luke's Episcopalian Protestant parish, of Bladenburg, Maryland, numbering about 100 congregants, will be the first in the United States to join the Novus Ordo sect under Benedict-Ratzinger's 2009 "Motu," which essentially allows Protestants to use their heretical services and theologies, as long as they give lip service to Newpope. The Motu supposedly allows Anglicans to become Catholic while retaining Anglican. Well, that would have surprised the white cassock off Pope Leo XIII, who in 1896, declared the Anglicans not Catholic!
But there is a problem. The St. Luke's minister is married with two children. But that is no problem in Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch, which disses Apostolic Tradition at the least provocation. Rev. Mark Lewis will be "installed" as a Novus Ordo minister by the end of this year, so that Newchurch will be the beneficiary of more invalid presbyters and invalid Messes.
Most "traditionalist" Anglican/Episcopalians have smelled the rat of Benedict-Ratzinger's oecumenical hoax. Only one other U.S. Episcopalian parish, Mt. Calvary of Baltimore, Maryland, has expressed any interest in joining the Newchurch of the New Order. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
This question is about the meaning of the word peace as used in John 14:27/DRV: "Peace, I leave with you." Does Christ mean peace with God (forgiveness of sins) or peace with regard to enemies? The United States, for example, is engaged in several wars currently. Does peace in the Bible mean that wars are prohibited?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
This is a good example of a common misconception occasioned by reading the Scriptures in translation and attributing false modern "vernacular" meanings to the original words. It is clear that Christ does not mean "world peace" in John 14:27, as shortly thereafter, in John 18:37, Christ proclaims before Pilate, the representative of the secular government: "My kingdom is not of this world."
The Scriptures indicate clearly that Christ stayed out of secular politics. Certainly Rome, Judaea, and other nations of His time fought many wars too. Christ's concern was the salvation of souls for eternity. And it is in that context that He warred with vituperative words against the corrupt Church of His time.
Modern "translations," that is, those after Vatican II (1962-1965), have been falsified in an attempt to deceive Newchurchers into believing that Christ was a political leader and was interested in secular events. Nothing could be farther from the truth. The Newchurch Modernists make the same mistake as the Biblical Jews, who falsely looked to their Messias to be a political leader.
The peace of which Christ speaks, the peace that is one of the twelve Fruits of the Holy Ghost, is an inner spiritual peace that comes from being in a state of Sanctifying Grace, of friendship with God and concord with His Commandments.

Good Catholics, pity your Motarian acquaintances. They have bought the fabrication of the invalid "Motu" Mess of 1962+ simulated by un-ordained Newchurch presbyters. Now in conjunction with the "Motu" Mess, the Motarians are having to accept "altar girls." True, some pseudo-traditionalists claim that the use of altar-girls at the "Extraordinary" Mess (a term never used in the Catholic Church) is not kosher according to a degraded "Ecclesia Dei" bureaucrat, but in reality they are accepted. You see, the "Motu" Mess is simulated within the context of the Novus Ordo Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service, so, as we have documented on many occasions in these Daily Commentaries, it must perforce include Novus Ordo practices, such as the use of altar-girls.
In many "Motu" Mess sites around the world, altar-girls are out in full-force. For example, at Cambridge University in England, a female/male "integrated" team of servers serves both the Novus Ordo and the "Motu" services there. And why not? The invalid Novus Ordo services use female "extraordinary" ministresses of the Cookie and the Kool-aid. Why should not altar-girls serve at the "Extraordinary" Mess? They're like Protestant services anyway, so why should the Motarians care? It all makes sense for those who buy into the Newchurch of the New Order, Novus Ordo, "Motu," or in any transmogrification.
That is why the Motarians, who falsely think that they are getting the Traditional Latin Mass -- whereas the "Motu" Mess of 1962+ is far from it -- will also be getting the altar-girls with their Cookie and Kool-aid!
Diarmuid Martin, Newarchbishop-primate of Dublin, Ireland, may be one of the few honest Novus Ordo sectarians left. Even though Benedict-Ratzinger doesn't seem the least bit uncomfortable with the child rapes perpetrated for thirty years while he has been at the helm of the New Order, Martin apparently is uncomfortable. So much so that Martin has criticized Benedict-Ratzinger for moving much too slowly on the "Apostolic visitations" that are supposed to investigate the crimes perpetrated by Newpope's bishops and presbyters, which have already been investigated and condemned in three Government reports. The visitations were just concluded on June 6, 2011.
In fact, the Apostolic visitations have been undercut by the announcement by Benedict-Ratzinger's new prefect of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life, Newarchbishop Joao Braz de Aviz, that he will not seek punishment against Newchurch criminals, but will instead have an "irenic dialogue." Irenic is a fancy Newchurch term, like oecumenism, meaning peaceful. Such an approach is far from that prescribed by Jesus Christ in Matthew 18:6, that child molesters should suffer capital punishment.
The Irish Newchurch religious superiors, facing penalties on account of their criminal complicity, are naturally lauding Braz for letting them off the hook. His predecessor Newcardinal Franc Rode "confronted" criminals in the Newchurch clergy, whereas Baze will "collaborate" with them. Newchurch "sisters" in the United States who have broken their vows are to be similarly handled with kid gloves after the Apostolic visitation there. Both the Irish and the United States religious have protested being held to any criminal or ecclesiastical standard at all.
When Benedict-Ratzinger announced that he would not make any recommendations on the Irish crimes until 2012, Newprimate Martin publicly criticized Benedict-Ratzinger for treating at a snail's pace children's safety from the predations of his Newchurch clergy. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic (Sic) News Service.]
On June 3, 2011, Benedict-Ratzinger met in secret with United States Vice President Joseph Biden, who calls himself a "Catholic," while at the same time advocating abortion, sodomy, and "gay" marriage. The media learned of the secret meeting when journalists at Newvatican to cover Newpope's meeting with Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas spotted Biden's car in the Newvatican courtyard. When Newpope's office was pressed for an explanation, Newvatican refused to comment.
Some sources suggested that Benedict-Ratzinger may have privately "scolded" Biden for his immoral position. But this would have been totally inappropriate. Biden's has proclaimed his immoral position in favor of abortion and its funding publicly on numerous occasions. Therefore, Biden's condemnation, if Newchurch is Catholic, should be public. In fact, he should have been threatened with excommunication.
Good Catholics, Benedict-Ratzinger has babbled about such a punishment for politicians publicly advocating abortion, but true to is pusillanimous papacy, he has never put his words into action. He allows immoral, pro-abortionist politicians to prance around calling themselves "Catholic" to get votes while advocating abortion, sodomy, "gay" marriage, and other grievous immoralities, while getting immunity from Benedict-Ratzinger. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
As a concerned traditional Catholic, I would like to express my fears about the Dedication Mass that Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX will perform in honor of the Novus Ordo sect's cathedral in Kansas City. Why would individuals who claim to be loyal to Tradition want to connect themselves with this Novus Ordo temple? On closer examination this temple is more than meets the eye. The stained-glass windows and Stations of the Cross deceptively put forth the semblance of Catholicism, but the cathedral still has its Masonic table and its tabernacle and crucifix cast off on the outskirts, which are used to simulate the phony and invalid "Ordinary Rite" of Benedict-Ratzinger's New Order.
Even more disturbing are the cathedral's Masonic/Pagan "renovations" of 2001. In the front of the cathedral above the "altar" area is the rose window. Up close, you can see clearly the phases of the moon depicted at the bottom of it, suggesting the neo-pagan goddess Gaia. Even more obvious and frightening is the sculpture of the Novus Ordo Mother of the Universe. This statue, I'm sure, is supposed to deceive the Newchurchers into believing that it is the Mother of God. This seems odd, as the woman depicted is too mature to be Mary at the time of her maternity, and she is also unattractive with a scowl on her face. What should concern Catholics especially is that the spiral appearing on her womb is a known occult symbol. Moreover, the rays are pointed at her precariously instead of emanating from her, as in the traditional image of Our Lady of Guadalupe.
It seems to me that this Novus Ordo image, which the Neo-SSPX is implicitly worshipping, togethe with the obviously Modernistic cathedral in which it is set, is intended to be a subtle inversion of Catholic doctrine and can even be read as a concealed image of the diabolical.
Raymond Burke, one of Benedict-Ratzinger's Newcardinals, who has a record of "messing up " badly, was forced out as main speaker at a London conference organized by Newchurch's Pro Ecclesia et Pontifice at Westminster Cathedral for June 18, 2011. Great mystery surrounds his expulsion.
What is known is that Burke has had a very bad record. He started out as Bishop of LaCrosse, Wisconsin, where he "consecrated" a "transgendered" man as a Newchurch "nun." The scandal was so great that Burke was transferred St. Louis, Missouri. There he illegally tried to steal a church that was not his property. This second faux pas was so scandalous that an embarrassed Benedict-Ratzinger decided that Burke had to be removed from the United States, to be placed essentially under "house arrest."
Benedict-Ratzinger appointed Burke to a quasi-sinecure as prefect of the Apostolic Signatura in Newrome, where he could be watched, according to the ecclesiastical mechanism moveatur, ut amoveatur. This is the same technique that was used to remove the paedophile-facilitator Bernard Law, Newcardinal of Boston, Massachusetts.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
What did John XXIII think of Pius XII's liturgical "modernizations"?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
In many ways, John XXIII was more conservative liturgically than Pius XII. Pius XII hired the Freemason presbyter, Hannibal Bugnini, who became the chief architect of the Novus Ordo, whereas John XXIII fired Bugnini. It is true that John XXIII approved Bugnini's Second Wave of liturgical "modernization" in 1960, Pius XII having already approved Bugnini's First Wave in 1956.
Why Pius XII, who is generally thought to be a traditional pope, approved these untraditional "modernizations" of 1956, has not been completely determined as yet. Further historical study is necessary, like that which Michael Davies did on the English schism and its similarities to the Novus Ordo. We do know that Pius XII was very ill, almost unto death at the time. We do know that he never signed Bugnini's corruption of Holy Week. Thus, it has no papal authority and is not binding. Many Catholic churches in Europe never implemented Bugnini's Protestantized Holy Week of 1956.
We do know, however, why John XXIII approved the Second Wave of "modernizations" in 1960. This Second Wave had actually been completed by Bugnini under Pius XII, but that pope died before he could promulgate it. John XXIII, who was a great admirer and friend of Pius XII, specifically said at the time that he was approving the Second Wave only because the work had been done under Pius XII. John XXIII did, however, fire Bugnini and essentially suppressed the ghastly New Latin Psalter that Pius XII had recognized in 1947.

Dozens of victims of child rape filed on June 1, 2011, the first European lawsuit against Benedict-Ratzinger. Belgian authorities flew to Newvatican to serve Newpope to answer charges in court for "failing to stop the assaults and rapes perpetrated by the Newchurch presbyters and bishops under his responsibility." Already some 80 child victims have joined the legal action, and more are joining daily. This is the first time in Europe that legal proceedings have been initiated against Benedict-Ratzinger in his official capacity as "head of the Holy See."
The groundbreaking legal action charges that Benedict-Ratzinger "is the appointer and authority over the bishops, which means that he can be liable for their errors. In addition, he can be held liable for his own faults. He neglected to intervene himself and to give instructions, which meant that abuse was liable to continue and the damage was able to increase."
Belgium's Newchurchers and government are reeling over revelations in 2010 of nearly 500 cases of sex crimes by Newchurch bishops, presbyters, and church officials, which caused thirteen suicides among the child victims. But now the worm has turned for Benedict-Ratzinger, who has been implicated in these crimes since John Paul II-Wojtyla brought him to Newrome to be Sex Crimes Czar for Newchurch.
Benedict-Ratzinger is now, in several countries around the world, facing the judgment of the criminal and civil courts. Newpope has been served in no less than three federal actions in United States courts for gross negligence in supervising his officials -- charges for which "diplomatic immunity" is not operative. As one of the Belgian victims of Newpope's abetting of crimes on the part of his Newclergy stated: "We've all been living for years with a Church which is in denial. Now we're turning the situation around. We're in charge, we're choosing an independent judicial framework." Belgian officials revealed that Benedict-Ratzinger, knowing how vulnerable he is, has offered 5,000 Euros for the child victims to "shut up," but the victims refused the hush-money and decided to institute legal action against him instead.
Benedict-Ratzinger's malfeasance broke onto the front pages when in April 2010, when it was revealed that the Newbishop of Bruges, Roger Vangheluwe, confessed that he had raped his two nephews from the age of six for a period of over a decade, and then boasted about his "conquests" in a television interview. Benedict-Ratzinger refused to take any action against his perverted Newbishop, but merely sent him off to a Church "spa" for "treatment." The Belgian government was irate and began a public investigation into Benedict-Ratzinger's personal complicity in the crimes. The Ghent Tribunal is expected to set hearings for the case against Benedict-Ratzinger in September 2011. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Agence France-Presse.]
Here in the Philippines Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX has already started to observe Novus Ordo holydays, not the six to ten traditional Catholic ones. The Newchurch bishops here have dumped all of the traditional holydays except Christmas and the Immaculate Conception and have added a new Novus Ordo holyday, Mary Mother of God. The Neo-SSPX here has now accepted the "authority" of the New Order and follows the "new" Novus Ordo Holydays of Obligation.
On May 29, 2011, two men dressed as traditional nuns robbed a bank in Palos Heights, Illinois, near Chicago. The traditional habits should have been an immediate give-away: Novus Ordo nuns no longer wear those habits. If only the bank employees had known that Newchurch had dropped the traditional Catholic Faith, they might have been able to react more quickly!

As we TRADITIO Fathers have said before, ignorance of the New Order can be perilous to your life, both physical and spiritual!
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I've noted a flurry of articles recently regarding the deteriorating situation in the SSPX, particularly under the leadership of that Judas and Benedict Arnold all rolled into one, Superior General Bernie Fellay. I too once assisted as SSPX Masses, until it finally dawned on me that this organization was unabashedly betraying the principals of its Founder, Archbishop Lefebvre.
The SSPX under Fellay has become totally schizophrenic in its theology, i.e., proclaiming undying loyalty to Benedict-Ratzinger while at the same time refusing obedience to his directives. The SSPX under Fellay is no different from the Novus Ordinarians, who, while remaining in good standing with Newchurch and paying lip service to Benedict-Ratzinger when it suits their fancy, just as readily ignores his edicts.
Can you explain to me how the SSPX (really, Fellay's Neo-SSPX) can justify its utterly contradictory position regarding Newchurch and how it can so shame the name of that holy pope whose ideals they claim to uphold, Pope St. Pius X. I've long ago abandoned the SSPX "Motu" services and stick to Traditional Latin Mass and traditional Catholic Faith.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
The only explanation that we can give is rank hypocrisy and self-aggrandizement on the part of Bernie Fellay. As we have frequently pointed out in our Daily Commentaries from the TRADITIO Fathers, Fellay wants to be the Tyrant of Traditional Catholicism with the imprimatur of Benedict-Ratzinger. Fellay hates traditional Catholicism -- unless it is under the control of his Neo-SSPX, which, as you say, is no longer really traditional.
In the last years of his life, the SSPX founder, Archbishop Lefebvre, rejected Benedict-Ratzinger completely as unCatholic and was apparently even planning to dump the Half Novus Ordo Mess of 1962, about which he had always had reservations, and to adopt the Traditional Latin Mass.
It was barely a year ago that Benedict-Ratzinger, buffeted by revelations that showed his active abetting of Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust for some thirty years, went on yet another one of his papal junkets to a supposedly safe country, Malta, which claims to be 98 per cent Newchurch. During that April 2010 junket, Benedict-Ratzinger instructed his supposed followers: "Your nation should continue to stand up for the indissolubility of marriage as a natural institution, as well as a sacramental one, and for the true nature of the family."
On May 29, 2011, the supposedly "Catholic" Maltese personally dealt Benedict-Ratzinger a body blow when they voted, by a 54 per cent majority, to allow divorce. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by CNN.]
Good Catholics, any notion that Newchurchers actually recognize Benedict-Ratzinger as pope is false. Oh, sure, they will mouth their recognition of him and condemn traditional Catholics for calling him unCatholic, but then the Newchurchers turn around, as the Maltese have just done, and spurn him. Catholicism does not reside in Newchurch. It is up to traditional Catholics to maintain the Catholic Faith as if in the catacombs, just as Pope Pius XII predicted just sixty years ago.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I pray that Carl leaves the SSPX as soon as possible as he fails to help the Society, but would rather tear it down. SSPX deacons are allowed to practice public speaking prior to ordination.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
See how these SSPXers love one another! This is a typical reaction of one of Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX members. If someone dares to point out a problem, away with him, demonize him! That way you don't have to address the problem. Notice too how the violation of a principle of the Council of Trent has now become, in Fellay's Neo-SSPX, "practice in public-speaking"? A shiver just went up our spines as we recalled the same devious approach as Fellay's Neo-SSPX used by Vatican II in the 1960s to destroy the Catholic Church.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Something evil is afoot in the SSPX, and this needs to be published immediately to warn the faithful. At today's Masses I saw two innovations, never before seen here in St. Marys, Kansas, largest parish of the SSPX in the world.
The first innovation never before seen was the announcement today, May 29th, 2011, that on Friday June 3rd, 2011, there would be a Missa Cantata to celebrate the "Dedication of the Kansas City Cathedral." The problem is: there in no SSPX cathedral in Kansas City! It was explained at one Mass that this "dedication" Mass, actually the Vatican II, Half Novus Ordo service of 1962, was related to the "jurisdiction" of the Novus Ordo "bishop" of Kansas City, whose "jurisdiction" now apparently covers Fellay's Neo-SSPX.
This is proof positive that Bernie Fellay already accepts the jurisdiction of the Novus Ordo over his Neo-SSPX. We SSPX members are being thrown under the bus of the heretical Novus Ordo and participating in honoring a Novus Ordo temple where is daily performed the Novus Ordo "abomination of desolation" by heretics, non-priests, and non-bishops for a laity that is mostly as happily apostate as its Anti-Christ leaders, to use Archbishop Lefebvre's words.
The second innovation never before seen at St. Marys was that priest-presbyter sat quietly at the side of the altar while a deacon preached the sermon, in direct disobedience to the directives of the Catechism of the Council of Trent, which teaches that a deacon may explain the Gospel only if a bishop or priest is not present. The SSPX is clearly implementing Novus Ordo practices here.
So, what are we to "celebrate" next here in the SSPX? Well, since we are celebrating the dedication of a Kansas City Cathedral where invalid communion in the hand is the norm, where the blackest of black masses (the Novus Ordo of 1969, fabricated by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini) is celebrated daily, where heresy is daily practiced, and where "tradition" is a is a bad word, it is clear that Prior Basilio Meramo was right in choosing expulsion from the SSPX by our malefactor superior general, Bernie Fellay, who even now is engineering the adulterous union of the his SSPX with Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch of the New Order.
I say to my fellow SSPX members -- though I may not be one of them for long -- beware of the wolves among the clergy of the SSPX who want to ensnare you back into the Newchurch by seductive stages, just as the Freemason Bugnini ensnared pre-Vatican II Catholics into his fabricated "New Order changes in the Mass year by year.
Abbot Leonard Giardina's body has been in the ground now for only four months, and his Judas monks, Sebastian Glentz and Michael Sauntner, have completed their betrayal of his independent, traditional Catholic Christ the King Abbey in Cullman, Alabama, selling it out to the Novus Ordo sect, which he himself rejected as not Catholic. The Abbot had written his Articles of Incorporation to provide that the Abbey should perpetually remain independent of the New Order sect. Furthermore, the Abbot, while still alive, told the false Newchurch to go pound sand when Novus Ordo bishop Robert Baker and his predecessor, David Foley, tried to convince the Abbot to sell out to the Newchurch of the New Order. But not even the law stopped the Judas monks and the predatory Novus Ordo bishop from plundering like pagan barbarians the Abbot's independent traditional Catholic Abbey.
These Judas monks officially turned traitor to their Abbot and perfidiously handed over his life's work to the New Order that he hated. And for what? At least Judas demanded thirty pieces of silver from the corrupt High Priest. These Judas monks sold their souls for free. In the bargain they lost their priesthoods, as Sebastian and Michael have been "defrocked" by Newchurch and degraded to the status of "lay brothers." Such is the treachery of the Newchurch of the New Order and its Newbishops.
The cat is now out of the bag. The Judas monks have admitted that while their Abbot was dying, they took advantage of the opportunity to connive with the Newbishop of Birmingham, Robert Baker, to sell out their Abbot's work to the Novus Ordo sect. The rapidity with which this betrayal of the Abbey was accomplished confirms the perfidy of the traitorous monks. The same thing happened to the conservative Mother Angelica in the same Newdiocese. When she suffered a stroke, the Newchurch Charismatics swept in, sidelined her, and converted EWTN into a Protestantized New Order channel. She was forbidden to broadcast the "Indult" Mess.
Under traditional Abbot Giardina's leadership, the abbey grew to eleven monks and five nuns. Now the other nine monks have left. All of the nuns have left. The priests and nuns loyal to Abbot Giardina's traditional Catholicism are now beginning to establish a new traditional site in Lafayette, Louisiana, under one of the former Abbey's priests, and a new convent under one of the former Abbey's nuns.
The mendacious monks put out an Easter Bulletin, in which they mentioned no details of what they were doing. They left it to Novus Ordo bishop Baker to announce on May 1, 2011, the fabricated Novus Ordo feast of "Divine Mercy Sunday," that they had "submitted" to the New Order and betrayed into Novus Ordo bishop Baker's hands the traditional Abbey, just as Judas betrayed His Lord into the hands of the corrupt Jewish High Priest, Caiphas.
Novus Ordo bishop Baker naturally praised the Judas monks for their "obedience" to the New Order. Then the Novus Ordo bishop blasphemed by attributing their treachery to their Abbot, not to say to the Catholic Faith, and their betrayal of the traditional Catholic Abbey, to the working of the "Holy Spirit." But God is not mocked. The Holy Ghost sent a tornado that blacked out the plundered Abbey on May 1, while an invalid Novus Ordo Mess was being performed. Even God could not stand to have that sacrilege seen in the light of day!
Under the Abbey's new management, Novus Ordo bishop Baker has ordered the suppression of the Traditional Latin Mass and its substitution with a Half Novus Ordo "Motu" Mess of 1962+, the Mess that was engineered by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini to become, just seven years later, the full-blown invalid Novus Ordo service of 1969, which may also now be performed in the sold-out Abbey.Just as we TRADITIO Fathers predicted immediately after the death of the Abbot, the local traditional community, just as the local communities in West Orange, New Jersey, and in Sun City, Arizona, when in similar peril, would essentially sit on their hands while their traditional Abbot's work was stolen by the Newchurch of the New Order. The local traditional community received many offers of help from around the United States for legal, financial, and other help. All of it was essentially spurned, while the locals mouthed pusillanimous protestations. The locals were told by knowledgeable advisors that if they were not to lose their abbey, they would have to act immediately, that even a delay of a few weeks would be too late. And just as we TRADITIO Fathers predicted, the locals did essentially nothing to save their Abbey, while the Judas monks completed their sellout of the traditional Abbey in the space of a few weeks. [Some information for this report was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
At least the local community, which numbers about one hundred traditional Catholics, did one thing right. They deserted the Judas monks and called upon a traditional Catholic bishop for assistance in continuing a Traditional Latin Mass at a site entirely separate from the Abbey. That traditional bishop graciously saw to their need, and now the traditional Catholic community in Cullman is re-forming under his leadership.
Good Catholics, the moral of this story is that you must continually fight like St. Pauls to thwart the New Order sect. You must take the responsibility to support vigorously your own local traditional Catholic site spiritually and financially, with your blood and sweat, along with your tears -- and react immediately to any attempt by the unCatholic New Order to take over your own churches, chapels, and oratories. There are few traditional Catholic sites around, and if you don't unstintingly put your heart and might and purse into your own site, you will lose it, just as the Cullman community lost its traditional Catholic Abbey. And if that happens, you will have no one to blame but yourself.
