Where Newchurch's Money Goes: Newchurch Now Pays as Much as Protestants
No Wonder "Motu" Presbyters Won't Go Traditional: They're Being Bought Off!

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Pay Chart

As of 2010 Novus Ordo Personnel Have Reached Salary Parity with Protestants
Novus Ordo Secular Clergy in the United States Now Make about 40,000 Dollars
Which Includes Room and Board, Health Insurance, and a Retirement Plan
No Wonder "Conservative" Presbyters Refuse to Cut Their Ties with the Immoral New Ordo Sect
Instead Sycophantically Pandering the Vatican II Half Novus Ordo "Motu" Mess
After All, These Presbyters Are Being Bought off by Lots of Newchurch Money!

The Novus Ordo Georgetown University's Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate reports that in 2010 Novus Ordo personnel have now reached salary parity with Protestants. Any idea that Newchurch is "charitable" or being paid on a lesser scale than its Protestant counterparts is a myth of which Newchurchers should be disabused.

And what about the salaries of Novus Ordo presbyters? Secular clergy, who do not take a vow of poverty (contrary to a popular misconception, only religious clergy take a vow of poverty), are paid off by Newchurch with a "package" that would be the envy of many, especially in today's tight economy. According to the National Federation of Priests Council, Novus Ordo presbyters got $38,951 per year in 2010, including car allowance, room and board in the Newparish rectory, health insurance, and a retirement plan. Anything extra that they do, such as teaching, is also paid for in addition to their salary.

It is no wonder why even "conservative" presbyters refuse to cut their ties with the immoral Newchurch of the New Order and to become fully traditional. Instead, they sycophantically pander to Novus Ordo pseudo-traditionalists with the Vatican II Half Novus Ordo "Motu" Mess. After all, these "Motu" presbyters are being bought off by lots of Newchurch money!

To the contrary, many independent traditional Catholic priests receive little or no salary at all, but pay their own upkeep out of their own personal funds. These in fact serve their congregations out of a high degree of charity, not charging them for the Lord's work, but following the model of St. Paul (Acts of the Apostles, 18:3), who did not rely upon any salary from the Christian communities he visited, but rather worked as a tentmaker to support himself.

Newchurch's Own Research Institute Shows a Precipitous Decline
In Conversions to the Immoral New Order Sect

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Conversion Chart

Newchurch's Own U.S. Center for Applied Research
Indicates that the Number of Converts to the New Order Continues a Precipitous Decline
The Report Also Indicates a Decline in Attendance at the Invalid Novus Ordo Service
Down Now Close to Only One out of Ten Who Call Themselves "Catholic"

Newchurch's own U.S. Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate (CARA) indicates that the number of converts to the Newchurch of the New Order continues its precipitous decline. CARA's August 2010 report records a year-to-year decline in infant baptisms into the New Order sect. The report also reports a decline in attendance at the invalid Novus Ordo service, down now close to only one out of ten who call themselves "Catholics."

Newchurch is now complaining that lukewarm "Catholics" still expect Newchurch to be there for them when it comes to having weddings, funerals, and baptisms, parochial schools, food pantries, and social services. So they go to knock on the Novus Ordo rectory door of "their parish" and increasingly find, to their surprise, that it is closed.

In each of the past three years, 2008, 2009, and 2010, the number of people joining the Novus Ordo sect has dropped below one million. Since 1947, during only one other period, from 1973 to 1979, did the annual number of new U.S. Catholics number less than one million. Chief elements in Newchurch to receive blame are the invalid Novus Ordo Messes and Benedict-Ratzinger's institutional support of child rape.

Not only are infant baptisms into the Novus Ordo sect in decline, but so are entries into the sect among children, teens, and adults. In just one year, from 2000 to 2001, the number of these non-infant entries into the sect fell by more than 20,000 (down 12.6%). In 2006 and 2007 another steep decline occurred. There were more than 28,000 fewer non-infant entries into the sect in 2007 than in 2005 (down 19.2%). One might have no doubt about what the Church's current condition would be had it had never changed the Mass into an invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service.

A Reader Asks: "Are Old Catholic Consecrations Valid?"

From: Perry

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

Can you can shed any light on the question: Are Old Catholic consecrations valid?

The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.

Yes, they are. Old Catholic consecrations are in the same situation as the Eastern Orthodox: they are valid, but illicit. Novus Ordo clergy ordained under the New Ordinal of 1968, however, are both invalid and illicit. For example, the traditional Roman canonist Uldaricus Beste, a relator for the original traditional Codex Iuris Canonici of 1917, in his standard commentary, Introductio in Codicem, writes:

Hinc ordines collati ab episcopis schismaticis ecclesiae orientalis, iansenistis in Batavia (Hollandia), veterum catholicorum in Germania et Helvetia, validi habendi sunt, nisi in casu particulari vitium essentiale admissum fuerit.
Hence, ordinations conferred from schismatic bishops of the Eastern (Orthodox) Church (and) from Jansenists in Batavia (Holland) of the Old Catholics in Germany and Switzerland are to be regarded as valid.

In its decision of 1934, the Sacred Congregation of Rites confirmed that the Old Catholic Church indeed has valid orders.

As Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch Goes Protestant:
Heretics and Married "Clergy" Are Imported from Protestantism into His New Order Sect

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Anglican Newchurchers

Anglican/Episcopalian Minister "Bob" Hall, Now Gone Novus Ordo
Schmoozes with Fellow Heretics around the "Table" after "Eucharist"
"Bob" Is One of the Few Protestant Ministers Slated to Lead a Novus Ordo Parish
Under Benedict-Ratzinger's "Motu" of 2009
Which Insinuates an Heretical Protestant Married Clergy into the New Order Sect

St. George Church, a small Anglican/Episcopalian church in Rogers, Alabama, is slated soon to have its Anglican "Mass" under Benedict-Ratzinger's Motu Proprio Anglicanorum coetibus of November 4, 2009. This "Motu" provides for a merging of the invalid Novus Ordo Mess and the heretical Anglican service, declared invalid by Pope Leo XIII in his Apostolic Letter Apostolicae curae of September 18, 1896. For further information, click on CURAE.TXT: On the Nullity of Anglican Orders.

The "Motu" makes the Protestant heretics full members of the New Order and allows them to retain their heretical "traditions" and services. The Anglican "Mass" is also being touted as a possible replacement for the Traditional Catholic Latin Mass. It is in this context that "Bob" Hall, minister of St. George Anglican Parish, will mock God by becoming a Novus Ordo/Anglican presbyter/minister and enter Benedict-Ratzinger's Novus Ordo sect together with his wife.

Already in June 1980 John Paul II-Wojtyla had insinuated Anglican ministers into the New Order sect, installing them as "presbyters," like Novus Ordo presbyters, who are not ordained as priests in the traditional Catholic Sacrament of Holy Orders, but merely "installed" as presbyters "to preside over the assembly" under the invalid Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968. Thus, neither the Novus Ordoized Anglican ministers nor the Novus Ordo presbyters have the sacramental power to celebrate a valid Mass. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Arkansas Catholic.]

Benedict-Ratzinger's "Motu" is also a ploy to introduce a married clergy into his New Order sect, which is an heretically-tinged rejection Catholic and Apostolic Tradition, which, starting from the words of Christ, requires a celibate clergy.

Call for Priestly Celibacy Comes from an Unexpected Source
The Head of U.S. Newbishops Says that Married Men Are the 'Greatest Culprits' of Sex Crimes against Children

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Timothy Dolan

Newarchbishop Timothy Dolan, Leader of the U.S. Novus Ordo Sect
May Be a Cheesehead
But He Did Get It Right on Priestly Celibacy
He Outraged a "Pro-family" Group by Correctly Stating that a Married Clergy
Is No Solution to Newclergy's Sex Crimes against Children
In Fact Married Men Commit the Vast Majority of Sex Crimes
Against their Own Children

The head of the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops, Timothy Dolan, Newarchbishop of New York, has stirred quite a controversy by telling the news programme Sixty Minutes that a married clergy is hardly the solution to Newchurch's sex crimes. When the interviewer suggested that the incidence of Novus Ordo presbyters raping children might be decreased if Newchurch clergy were allowed to be married, Dolan responded, "I don't know if what we know scholarship-wise would back that up. The greatest culprits in sexual abuse are, unfortunately, married men. So, I don't know if marriage is the answer."

The American Coalition for Fathers and Children were outraged, called Dolan's comment "blasphemy," and demanded a public apology. Well, the comment is not "blasphemy," which is an impious utterance against God. Moreover, Dolan is right: the statistics are incontrovertible that by far and away the principal rapists of children are their own fathers and other married male relatives, according to the United States Justice Department.

Completely false is the notion lately bandied about that a married clergy, which violates Catholic and Apostolic Tradition, would solve a problem based in the criminal malfeasance of Newchurch leadership from the top down, which seeks to support and cover up paedophiles rather than set a chilling environment in which sex crimes against children are exposed and severely prosecuted. Protestant sects are well aware that marriage does not stop their ministers from paedophilia. In 2005, for example, 838 married Protestant ministers were prosecuted for sex crimes against children: 147 Baptists, 251 Fundamentalists/Evangelicals, 140 Anglicans/Episcopalians, 46 Methodists, 19 Presbyterians, and 197 others.

A Reader Asks: "Are Clergy and Religious More Holy or Spiritual than Laymen?"

From: Christine

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

Does the Church teach that clergy and religious more holy or spiritual than laymen? Is there is no place for laymen to serve in a teaching capacity in the Church?

The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.

One must make a distinction between state of life and persons. Scripture teaches that the religious state is a higher state than the lay state. However, this teaching does not mean that any given religious is "more holy," to use your words, than any given layman. Nor does it mean that any given decision of a religious is the most prudent. However, as St. Paul says, for the good of order in the Church, those decisions are generally to be followed, unless, of course, they involve some sacrilege, doctrinal failing, or immorality.

Part of the ordained role of the priest is to instruct. This is most particularly accomplished through preaching. Sometimes laymen can share in a delegated part of this role, e.g., through teaching catechism under the supervision of the priest.

Most people would be smart enough to not to act as their own lawyer or their own doctor, except within a very limited sphere. Yet all too many laymen fancy that they can speak from ignorance on theological science. That is why so many "blogs" on the internet are worthless and misleading, as Scripture says, the blind leading the blind into a pit.

As one example of the pitfalls into which laymen fall, we recently received a message from someone who objected to calling Fatima a "private revelation." He claimed that since allegedly 70,000 people saw the "miracle of the sun," it was a "public revelation." Obviously, this layman was completely ignorant the technical definition of the two terms in Catholic theology, in which the difference has nothing to do with numbers or location, but with source (Apostoles) and time (before the death of St. John the Apostle). The layman was undoubtedly relying on his own interpretation of the words in his own vernacular -- always a dangerous and ignorant thing to do!

The Neo-SSPX's Bernie Fellay Tells His Nuns that They Are to Accept a Novus Ordo "Nun"
Mary Micaela Has Been Sent by the Novus Ordo Sect to Infiltrate Fellay's Group

He Refuses to Admit that Hannibal Bugnini's Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968
Is Invalid Per Se, as Was Declared by Pope Leo XIII
For the Anglican Ordinal after Which It Is Modeled

Just as our correspondents have reported in previous Daily Commentaries that Bernie Fellay, the Neo-SSPX's Superior General, is using presbyters from the New Order sect to staff certain of his Neo-SSPX locations and refuses to admit that Hannibal Bugnini's Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968 is per se invalid, as was declared by Pope Leo XIII for the Anglican Ordinal after which it is modeled, now it seems that Fellay is doing a "nun" exchange with the Newchurch of the New Order.

An Newchurch "nun," Mary Micaela, was sent by the Novus Ordo sect to infiltrate the Neo-SSPX's convent at Wanganui, New Zealand, having been delegated by the New Order's Congregation for Religious and Secular Institutes in Newrome to do so. The Neo-SSPX District Superior, Daniel Couture, was specifically charged by Fellay to admit the Novus Ordo nun. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Neo-SSPX sources.]

A Reader Writes: "I Have Seen the Fatima Empire Used
To Ensure that Newchurchers Stay in the New Order Sect"

From: Judith

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

I would like to point out yet another error on the part of the extremist Fatimists. They make a big to-do about the fact that purportedly Russia was not consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, as the Fatima apparition on July 13, 1917, was supposed to have requested. Yet this whole Fatima "consecration" crusade is a fraud. In fact, Pope Pius XII did consecrate Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary on July 7, 1952, in his Apostolic Letter Carissimis Russiae populis (On the Immaculate Heart and the People of Russia) as follows:

Just as not many years ago We consecrated the entire world to the Immaculate Heart of the Virgin Mother of God, in a most special way, so now We dedicate and consecrate all the peoples of Russia to that same Immaculate Heart.

This disinformation on the part of the extremist Fatimists has lead to years of perpetual campaigns to raise large sums of money to support such a consecration. Fatima industries have even been created to push Fatima before the traditional Catholic Faith at all costs. I have seen the Fatima Empire used to ensure that Newchurchers stay in the New Order sect. Fatima is a big money maker. It all smacks of self-serving secular political fund-raisers!

Late Abbot Giardina's Cullman Traditional Community Rejects New Order Bishop
And Announces the Establishment of a New Traditional Catholic Church of St. Benedict

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Abbot Giardina's Tombstone

The Traditional Catholic Community of Christ the King Abbey in Cullman, Alabama
Has Arranged in Piety for a Suitable Tombstone to be Erected for Abbot Giardina
The Community Has Rejected the Judas Monks' Sellout of the Traditional Abbey
To the Receiver of the Stolen Abbey, Newbishop Robert Baker
And Has Opened a New St. Benedict Traditional Mass Center under a Traditional Bishop
One of the Judas Monks Recants His Sellout to the New Order and Joins the Traditional Community

We have received a report from the traditional Catholic community in Cullman, Alabama, on what has gone on since the Judas monks, Sebastian and Michael, sold out the traditional Christ the King Abbey to the local Newbishop before the body of its traditional Benedictine abbot, Fr. Leonard Giardina, was even cold in the ground. The traditional Catholic community of Cullman has rejected the New Order bishop of Birmingham, Alabama, the receiver of the stolen property, the Least Reverend Robert Baker. Instead, the traditional community has sought help from a traditional bishop, Mark Pivarunis, of the Congregatio Mariae Reginae Immaculatae, who graciously responded to the community's need.

The traditional Catholic Cullman community has announced to the TRADITIO Roman Catholic Network that it has formed a new church, which it has named St. Benedict Traditional Roman Catholic Church. Since the Judas monks locked out Cullman's traditional Catholic community from the Abbey of Christ the King in March 2011, Bishop Pivarunas has seen to it that the community has not missed having a traditional priest for Sunday and Holyday Masses since the Abbey was closed. The bishop himself has come to say Mass on two occasions.

The traditional Catholic community has established a temporary Mass Center near Cullman while a permanent church facility is being sought. One member of the local traditional community reports: "It has been amazing to see the development of our community through all this. Now that we are set up as a traditional parish, we have all gotten to know each other much better, and the level of our community's cohesion and fraternal spirit has gone up tremendously." For further information, click on the TRADITIO Network's Official Traditional Catholic Directory department, provided to the TRADITIO Network by the National Registry of Traditional Latin Masses.

It appears, however, the old abbey, stolen by Novus Ordo personnel, is desperate for attendees for its "Motu" Mess, simulated by presbyters from the Novus Ordo sect. So desperate are the presbyters for attendees that they tried to pass out literature intended to filch members from the traditional community at St. Benedict's! They were not successful, however. Instead, they were told in no uncertain terms by the traditional priest of the community that they were not welcome to come to the traditional site to hawk for the fraudulent service.

In what is perhaps the biggest irony of this whole affair, Fr. Michael, one of the two Judas monks, has recanted of his sellout to the Newchurch of the New Order and has sought refuge from Novus Ordo bishop Baker with traditional bishop Pivarunis! Nor has the traditional Catholic Cullman community failed in its duties of piety to its late abbot, Fr. Giardina. It has arranged for a suitable monument to be erected upon the Abbot's grave in the old monastery's cemetery, whilst the Novus Ordo sellouts could barely be bothered to have a funeral for Abbot Giardina.

A Reader Asks: "Why Is the Lamb of God Not Addressed in the Vocative Case during Holy Mass?"

From: Rudolph

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

Why is the Agnus Dei, the Lamb of God not addressed in the vocative case during Holy Mass? The vocative case (Agne), the Latin case of direct addres, is not used, but instead the nominative (Agnus) is. Thank you for any insights that you can offer. And thank you for all your work on behalf of Catholic Tradition.

The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.

Already in the Classical period, e.g., in Plautus, Horace, and Livy, those words that have a different form in the vocative from the nominative, particularly, second-declension nouns in -us and -ius, were beginning to discard that different form. This tendency is quite evident by the time of St. Jerome's Latin Vulgate of the early fifth century after Christ.

In Vulgate Latin, which is used in many parts of the Mass, the vocative had disappeared except in a few words and phrases, particularly those that are the most used, such as Domine, Lord. These words, by a linguistic principle, tend to be the most frequently used words in a language. Consider, for example, that the verb in any language that for the longest time keeps its "irregular" forms is the verb "to be," as it is the most-used verb in any language. Other verbs tend to regularize over time, for example, in English, "hung" becoming "hanged." Thus, in Vulgate Latin, we see even a mixture of the forms, as in Psalm 8:2: Domine, Dominus noster, where the vocative is immediately followed by the nominative in direct address.

The Nuns Running Catholic Hospitals Are No More
And Newchurch Has Sold out the Hospitals Themselves to Secular Corporations
Before the New Order, Nuns Ran 97 Per Cent of Catholic Hospitals; Now They Run 1 Per Cent
The Newchurch of the New Order and Modernist Vatican II Has Destroyed Catholic Hospitals

After ministering in Catholic hospitals since 1872, a Novus Ordo Franciscan leader of nuns says, "We can't be maudlin about this. The last person [will] turn the lights out." Catholic hospitals virtually don't exist any longer. Newchurch has sold them out to secular corporations. Moreover, the Novus Ordo "nuns," coiffed in their Lesbian-style bobbed hair and mini-skirts, have turned unCatholic, as they embraced the "feminist movement," the "sexual revolution," and Modernist Vatican II Council's degrading of traditional religious to irreligious secular employees.

Since the Vatican II Council in 1965, more than two-thirds of all nuns have left or died. In 2009, 91 percent of all nuns were at least 60 years old. The Franciscan nuns have not had a single new vocation in 25 years. Now they have officially stopped looking.

The Newchurch of the New Order and the Vatican II have destroyed Catholic hospitals. Other than the occasional crucifix on the wall and the marble Madonna in the lobby to defraud Newchurchers of their healthcare money by pretending that the hospital is still "catholic," these hospitals do not look any different from secular ones. Nuns in religious habits have disappeared completely. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the New York Times.]

A Reader Asks: "Is Fatima Really a Miracle?"

From: Steven

Dear TRADITIO Fathers

Many veteran traditional Catholics (H. Gibson, Ellwanger, Morgan) have been Fatima skeptics, but how does one justify this skepticism in the face of the Miracle of the Sun? For all that, it does seem that Fatima has become a cottage industry, and surely much money is being made by the unscrupulous off of it. Is Fatima really a miracle?

The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.

It is Catholic dogma that no purported miracles after the death of the last Apostle, St. John, about the year 100, are a matter of Faith. Only the miracles of Our Lord and His Apostles are matters of Faith. Thus, one could hold, in complete conformity with the Catholic Faith, that Fatima was a natural meteorological event, as some have held. Perhaps the raging storm in Madrid on August 20, 2011, that threw Benedict-Ratzinger off his throne and silenced his Modernistic "homily" was an even greater miracle with deeper contemporary significance. Who knows? Maybe instead of Fatima, we will soon be talking about the Madrid Revelation!

The Heavens Themselves Smote Benedict-Ratzinger at His "Catholic Woodstock"
A Storm More Severe than Fatima's Assailed Him with a Vengeance

World Youth Day

Benedict-Ratzinger's Novus Ordo Keynote "Homily" at World Youth Day 2011
Was Silenced by the Heavens Themselves, and He Was Covered Up in Silence
It Was if the God of Heaven and Earth Himself Were Punishing the "Paedophile Pope"
Knocking Off His Skullcap, Unseating Him from His Throne, and Furiously Pelting Him with Rain
The Youth Assembled for the "Catholic Woodstock" Ran Away Screaming and Terrified

An unprecedent storm bearing a divine fury just as the sun was setting lashed out at Benedict-Ratzinger and silenced him as he began his keynote "homily" at World Youth Day in Madrid, Spain, on August 20, 2011. It is extremely unusual for Spain to suffer thunderstorms on August nights. As Benedict-Ratzinger started to speak, suddenly a strong storm wind unleashed its rage at him, blowing his papal skullcap off and symbolically unseating him from his throne. The pages of his homily were drenched beyond recognition, and his vestments went up like a sail. Lightening flashed wildly around the sky, and a torrential downpour of rain began pelting Benedict-Ratzinger with the fury of God Almighty.

The crashing censorship of the heavens sent the youth who had assembled for the Novus Ordo shivaree, based upon the immoral Woodstock Festival of 1969, were terrified and ran off screaming. When Benedict-Ratzinger tried to resume his homily, the sound system shorted out, and he could not sprew out his Modernist claptrap. He was forced to abandon his homily altogether. On the previous day angry demonstrations had broken out on Madrid's downtown streets against Benedict-Ratzinger.

Some said that the raging of the heavens was more scary than the spinning of the sun in nearby Fatima, Portugal, in 1917. Likely the Virgin Most Pure was making her condemnation of the "Paedophile Pope" even more vivid than to the devout Fatima crowd. Benedict-Ratzinger, who was completely in charge of Newchurch clergy's sex crimes since 2001 and whose signature appears on numerous documents freeing known paedophile bishops and presbyters to rape more children, has made no mention in Madrid of Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, over which he has presided.

Senior Bishop Thinks that Benedict-Ratzinger Will Finally Shaft Neo-SSPX's Fellay on September 14, 2011
Who Has Wasted the Last Seven Years "Negotiating" for Entry into the Novus Ordo Sect

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Bernie Fellay & Richard Williamson

Senior Bishop Richard Williamson (Right)
Intimates in His Latest Bulletin that Neo-SSPX Superior Bernie Fellay (Left)
Has Been Played for the Fool by Benedict-Ratzinger
While Fellay Was Wasting Time over the Last Two Years
Negotiating for Entry into the Novus Ordo Sect

According to senior bishop Richard Williamson, it looks as if the Neo-SSPX's Superior General, Bernie Fellay, were going to be shafted by Benedict-Ratzinger. In other words, Fellay's seven years of sycophancy to Newpope and his New Order sect have been an utter waste of time. Fellay ignored the lesson that Michael Davies, late President of Una Voce International, learned just before his death, that his more than ten years of "negotiating" with the New Order had been an utter waste of time, that he had been completely duped by Josef Ratzinger, and that he went to his death a compromised Catholic.

Williamson, in an August 20, 2011, bulletin, gives his opinion of what will happen when Fellay is confronted by Cardinal William Levada, Newchurch's Prefect of Doctrine, on September 14, 2011, to receive the results of Fellay's "negotiations" with the Novus Ordo from autumn of 2009 to April 2011. Williamson summarizes the likely result as follows:

Now by all accounts the discussions made clear that no doctrinal agreement is possible between the SSPX, as cleaving to the age-old Church doctrine, and today's Rome, as set upon the Conciliar teaching of the Newchurch, and moreover persevering in this disorientation, as is clear from the Newbeatification of John-Paul II in May [2011] and from Assisi III due to happen this coming October [2011]. So the situation coming out of the discussions remains exactly where it was two years ago, going into the discussions.

Williamson posits that Fellay will be offered both the "carrot and the stick": a threat of total "excommunication" from Newchurch for Fellay's Neo-SSPX, once and for all, coupled with an offer of "full communion" with the bastard Novus Ordo sect, while the immoral prelates of that sect would choose the Neo-SSPX's superior and bishops. If Fellay were to sell out his Neo-SSPX on this basis, he would probably be cast aside as superior. Fellay's loss of his superiorate would be the reason that he would turn down such a sellout, not that he has any great aversion working under the Novus Ordo sect, as he has been doing that for two years already!

A Reader Asks: "Why Do We Say Verbo in the Domine, Non Sum Dignus?

From: Andrew

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

My question relates to the text from the Latin of the Mass: "Domine, non sum dignus ut intres sub tectum meum, sed tantum dic verbo, et sanabitur anima mea." I don't really understand the use of verbo here, as opposed to the accusative, verbum. Could you clarify why we say verbo in the Domine, Non Sum Dignus?

The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.

It is true that the cognate accusative (verbum) would be the more common construction. The cognate accusative seems like a direct object, but actually is somewhat different. It fills out the intrinsic meaning of a verb with a word that is cognate (related etymologically) to the verb or has a meaning similar to the verb, for example, vitam vivere, to live life.

Here in Matthew 8:8, St. Jerome in his Latin Vulgate version, as is his careful practice, is reflecting closely the original Greek construction (λόγῳ), which in place of a cognate accusative sometimes admits of a cognate dative to emphasize the verbal action. As this Greek dative comes under the general category of an instrumental dative, a subcategory of the dative of manner, St. Jerome has reflected it with the corresponding instrumental case in Latin, the ablative, rather than the dative, as in Greek, which has no ablative case.

The instrumental usage, whether reflected by the dative in Greek or by the ablative in Latin, answers the question quomodo (how). How did he speak? With the word (verbo). Here, a literal rendition would be: "speak with the word." This usage is found occasionally elsewhere in Koine Greek and Vulgate Latin, which sometimes have a slightly different syntax from the classical forms of Greek and Latin, preceding, in both languages, by about four centuries the later Biblical constructions.

Just two weeks later, the end of the world almost came for poor Harold, when he suffered a stroke, perhaps a result of all the stress caused him when his phony prediction failed to come true, and his followers turned on him.

It used to be that it was only extremist Protestant evangelicals who got into the business of predicting the date of the end of the world, but now it seems that pseudo-traditionalists have been tainted with Protestant Charismaticism, such as that shoveled out on the EWTN Cable Network. The "Fatima Movement" had proclaimed that according to the "true version" of the Third Secret of Fatima, Rome would be destroyed on Doomsday, August 17, 2011. That day has now passed without the predicted destruction.

The clock has now literally run out on the Fatima Movement. In the last years we Fathers have heard more unCatholic nonsense proclaimed in the name of "Fatima" than anything else other than Benedict-Ratzinger's Great "Motu" Mess Hoax! The Fatima "money machine" is very lucrative, hawing books, CDs, foreign tours, and the rest -- just like Medjugorje.

A whole unCatholic cult has grown up around "Fatima secrets," "Russia consecrations," and all the rest. Those who proclaim this cult seem to have elevated a claimed apparition over the only two dogmatic sources of Public Revelation of Our Lord Jesus Christ, that is, Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition. Remember: all claimed revelations after the death of the last Apostle, St. John, are "private," according to Catholic dogma, and no Catholic is ever required to believe a claimed private revelation.

Moreover, the very notion of "secrets" is contrary to what Our Lord taught. When He was grilled by the High Priest Caiphas before the Sanhedrin, Christ answered: "I have spoken openly to the world: I have always taught in the synagogue, and in the temple, whither all the Jews resort; and in secret I have spoken nothing (John 18:20/DRV). The notion of "secrets" smacks of the heresy of Gnosticism, which taught that only to certain people were secrets of the Faith given. This lead to a whole spate of spurious and heretical writings like the "Gospel of Judas."

Pope St. Pius X captured truly Catholic teaching when he wrote in 1913:

When anyone tells me about the extraordinary, I am the most incredulous man in the world..., but when holiness results from the practice of virtue..., I believe in it. Just this morning ... I was saying that long ago the Devil manifested himself openly in the possessed whom he caused to suffer, and from whom he could be driven out only by exorcism. Now the Devil has changed his method; he takes the appearance of sanctity and makes people believe in visions. He even gives to certain persons the knowledge of hidden things, so that they may appear to prophesy; sometimes he even simulates stigmata!

A better condemnation of the extremist Fatimism we have not read! There is nothing, however, in Fatima opposed to the faith if one wishes to believe and treat it as a private pious devotion with due restraint. As a claimed private revelation, however, Fatima can never be compulsory in belief, and it is a sin of excess of religion, if not of heresy, to give it more credibility than the two sources of Public Revelation, that is, Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition -- what is known as the error of Fatimism.

Benedict-Ratzinger Is Forced to Hand Sex Documents over to a U.S. Federal Court
An Appeals Court Has Ruled that the Lawsuit against Him Must Go Forward

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Day by Day, the New Order Papacy of Benedict-Ratzinger Is Going up in Smoke
Now He Has Been Dragged before the Bar of Justice Kicking and Screaming
As High Courts in the United States Are Holding Him Accountable at Law
For Rapes Committed by His Employees, the Newbishops and Presbyters

In the United States, the federal lawsuit known as John V. Doe vs. Holy See against Newchurch continues. Benedict-Ratzinger has tried every legal trick in the book to get the lawsuit, originated by a child raped by a Newchurch presbyter, dismissed, even the Federal Appeals court upheld the lawsuit because Benedict-Ratzinger, though he might have diplomatic immunity in other areas, is liable under U.S. law as an employer and the actions of his employees, that is, his Newbishops and presbyters.

Benedict-Ratzinger was forced to release files on August 17, 2011, to the United States Federal Court. The files, however, represented only a small, selective part of the documentation he must turn over to the U.S. court. The lawsuit is holding Newchurch's Unholy See accountable for the rape of the child.

A U.S. federal judge in Portland, Oregon, ordered the Benedict-Ratzinger to respond to requests for disclosure from Doe's lawyers by August 19, 2011, the first time Newpope has been forced to turn over documentation in a sex-crime case. The files so far released show that the presbyter had raped children in Ireland and then emigrated to the United States, where he raped more children in Chicago, Illinois, and Portland, Oregon. The judge's discovery order also requires Benedict-Ratzinger to provide information about its general policies handling sex-crimes cases and how he trains, educates, selects and removes presbyters.

Victims have long denounced the secrecy with which Josef Ratzinger, first as JPII-Wojtyla's Sex-crimes Czar and then Newpope, handles sex-crimes cases. Thousands of children in Europe, the United States, and elsewhere have reported they were raped and sexually assaulted by presbyters, while Newchurch's bishops covered up the crimes because Ratzinger forbad them to report crimes to the police.

Reeling from unprecedented criticism over his handling of his criminal clergy in Ireland and the United States, Benedict-Ratzinger was forced to release the documents after dragging his feet for nine years. One representative for the Survivors Network of Those Abused by Pr[esbyters] stated: "It's clear that this is a desperate, last minute Vatican ploy to seem ever-so-slightly less recalcitrant than it has been for decades with clergy sex crimes and cover ups."

A Portrait of Newchurch Gone Mad in Once-Catholic Spain
More Spaniards Believe in "Gay Marriage" than in God!

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Spain -- once one of the most Catholic countries on the face of the earth -- under the rule of the Newchurch popes has become one of the most pagan places on the face of the earth. What does the Spain that from August 18 to August 21 is enduring the latest triennial "Catholic Woodstock" World Youth Day, now look like, after fifty years of Modernist Vatican II sacramental, doctrinal, and moral corruption?

Only 13 per cent of Spaniards and only 7 per cent of young Spaniards now go to Newchurch Mess. 24 per cent of Spaniards now say that they are atheists, almost double the 14 per cent who said that they are atheists in 2000. 42 per cent of young Spaniards now say that they are atheists.

According to the most recent Eurobarometer Poll taken in 2005, fewer than 60 per cent of Spaniards say that they believe in God. Fewer than 50 per cent of Benedict-Ratzinger's Germany believes in God. In France, the "eldest daughter of the Church," fewer than a third now say that they believe in God.

Spaniards now embrace immorality on an unprecedented scale. 70 per cent of Spaniards now support "gay marriage" -- 10 per cent more than say that they believe in God!

An out-of-control Newchurcher, aged 24, described as "a very dedicated student, calm, very well-mannered," was caught by police on August 16, 2011, planning to kill the protesters against Benedict-Ratzinger's highly-criticized World Youth Day at Madrid, Spain, which has come under widespread criticism in Spain for its profligacy and immorality. This is what Newchurch youths have come to under the corrupt Benedict-Ratzinger regime, completely bereft of morality.

Two days before the opening of Newpope's "Catholic Woodstock" on August 18, 2011, the student at Spain's General Organic Chemistry Institute, planned an attack using asphyxiating gases and other chemical substances. The student had been making threats over the internet against people in Spain opposed to Benedict-Ratzinger's profligate and immoral junket. Newpope's junket to Madrid has sparked widespread protest from groups, including members of the New Order sect, that oppose the profligate spending of public funds amid Spain's desperate economic crisis. Under the slogan "None of my taxes for the pope," the protesters marched down Madrid's main thoroughfares.

Benedict-Ratzinger's junket, which in past incarnations has found Newchurch youth fornicating in the stands while the papal Novus Ordo Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service went on, is costing over 70,000,000 U.S. dollars to stage. Protesters complain that the government is essentially spending taxpayers' money on the visit by granting tax breaks to corporate sponsors and perks such as discount subway and bus tickets for pilgrims.

A Reader Asks: "Isn't Canon Law Infallible?"

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

Isn't canon law infallible? If it is, then how can the Novus Ordo canon law of 1983 give Newchurchers permission to attend the invalid and sinful Novus Ordo for any reason at all?

The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.

Your premise is absolutely wrong. The Church has never taught that there is anything "infallible" about canon law. It is a human construct that is quite fallible. The proof of the pudding: Newchurch "canon law" isn't even Catholic. Even Newchurch itself follows it more in the breach than in the observance. It is really just more phony propaganda in the great New Order web of deceit.

A New Ottaviani Intervention: Benedict-Ratzinger's Youth Catechism Is Declared "Errant"
An International Theological Coalition Has Demanded Its Recall

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Benedict-Ratzinger's YouCat

Reminiscent of the "Ottaviani" Intervention of 1969
In Which Two Cardinals and a Group of Roman Theologians
Declared Bugnini/Paul VI's Novus Ordo Service Heretical
And Demanded Its Recall as an Invalid Protestantized Service
Now an International Coalition of Theologians
Has Declared Benedict-Ratzinger's YouCat Heretical
And Demanded Its Recall to Protect Youth from Its Modernist Errors

In 1969, when the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini and Paul VI-Montini issued their Novus Ordo Missae, kicking off the invalid Novus Ordo Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service, two Roman cardinals and a group of Roman theologians issued what is commonly called the "Ottaviani Intevention," which declared the Novus Ordo Service nothing more than an invalid Protestantized service. Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani was the Pro-prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith. Paul VI was so embarrassed by the Ottavani Intervention's potent challenge to the validity of the Novus Ordo service that he recalled the Novus Ordo service for a reformulation, which turned out to be merely cosmetic and just as invalid.

Reminiscent of that challenge to a Newpope's orthodoxy, an international coalition of 25 theologians has now launched a formal petition for the recall of Benedict-Ratzinger's YouCat, the Youth Catechism of the Catholic Church, issued on March 25, 2011, for the "Catholic Woodstock" World Youth Day in Madrid, Spain, scheduled to be held August 18-21, 2011. The theological coalition claims that Benedict-Ratzinger's catechism, based on the equally-heretical Catechismus Catholicae Ecclesiae of 1997, is filled with "errant" teaching having an heretical "Modernist bent."

The errors incorporated by Benedict-Ratzinger into his catechism include the following:

The international coalition upbraids Benedict-Ratzinger, as St. Paul upbraided St. Peter (related in Galatians 2:11 et seq.), saying: "Our youth deserve better than this. ALL Catholics have a moral obligation to teach the true Catholic doctrine." They demand that Benedict-Ratzinger recall his heretical YouCat.

(Right) "Fr." Josef Ratzinger as He Appeared at the Same Council as One of Its Modernist Leaders

Refused Newchurch Shivarees and Chose Fr. DePauw to Perform Traditional Latin Rites
At His Ave Maria Chapel, from Which a Novus Ordo Bishop Was Turned Away

Here is yet another example demonstrating why you can't believe Newchurch propaganda and historical revisionism. Newcardinal Edward Egan, of New York, inaugurated on August 12, 2011, a Newchurch web site on the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks upon that city. In his description Egan was careful to omit the contributions of the traditional Catholic priest, Fr. Gommar DePauw, Founder of the Catholic Traditionalist Movement, in 1964. As the late radio broadcaster Paul Harvey used to say, "And now, the rest of the story."

It seems that a significant number of the police and firemen of New York were not all that happy with the Newchurch of the New Order. They didn't find it supportive of the protective services, and they didn't find it particularly patriotic either. However, there was a traditional Catholic priest who supported them and whom they admired greatly: Fr. Gommar DePauw, Founder of the Catholic Traditionalist Movement, who was pastor of Ave Maria Chapel, really a full-blown church, in Westbury, Long Island, which remained scrupulously independent of any association with the New Order and its corrupt officials.

Fr. DePauw foresaw already in 1964 that the Catholic Church was being taken over at Vatican II by the likes of Hans Kung, Edward Schillebeeckx, Karl Rahner, and Josef Ratzinger -- all of whom were under suspicion of heresy by the Holy Office. Fr. DePauw had an excellent vantage point to see this happening, as he was present as a peritus at the first session. Fr. DePauw was a strong supporter of the police and fire departments and of patriotism for his adopted country, the United States of America, of which he had become a naturalized citizen from Belgium and was honored to have been received at the White House by U.S. President Ronald Reagan.

When Newchurch wanted to elbow in with a Novus Ordo shivaree in St. Patrick's Newcathedral for the police and firemen lost in the attack, some of the families balked and turned instead to Fr. DePauw to conduct traditional Catholic funerals for their faithful departed at Ave Maria Chapel. This rejection became quite a blot on the Newchurch of the New Order. One mitred Newchurch bishop even tried to crash the traditional funeral and was unceremoniously turned away by the ushers.

Good Catholics, most of you probably don't even know the courageous priest who founded your Traditional Catholic Movement, some ten years before Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre stood forward. Even the pseudo-traditional Catholic periodicals and sites (we don't have to name them for you, do we?) want to deprive you of the knowledge of where you came from. Why? Because, even in 1964, Fr. DePauw saw the handwriting on the wall and stood against the "authorities" in the nascent Newchurch of the New Order, who were selling the Catholic Church out to the likes of the Modernist leader of Vatican II, "Fr." Ratzinger and his ilk. Thank God for Fr. DePauw!

Tracking Organization Reports Rampant Paedophilia amongst U.S. Newchurch Bishops
22 Have Been Investigated for Sex Crimes against Children

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Just more confirmation that Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal comes from the top down, the reporting organization on Newchurch bishop and presbyter crimes has published a list of 22 Newchurch bishops investigated for sex crimes against children, or admitting to such crimes, amongst the 196 Newchurch dioceses in the United States, according to the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops:

  1. Juan Arzube, Auxiliary Newbishop of Los Angeles
  2. Tod Brown, Newbishop of Orange, California
  3. Paul Dudley, Newbishop of Sioux Falls, South Dakota
  4. Thomas DuPre, Newbishop of Springfield, Massachusetts
  5. Joseph Ferrario, Newbishop of Honolulu, Hawaii
  6. Louis Gelineau, Newbishop of Providence, Rhode Island
  7. Timothy Harrington, Newbishop of Worchester, Massachusetts
  8. Joseph Hart, Newbishop of Cheyenne, Wyoming
  9. Howard Hubbard, Newbishop of Albany, New York
  10. Anthony O'Connell, Newbishop of Palm Beach, Florida (resigned)
  11. James Rausch, Newbishop of Phoenix, Arizona
  12. George Rueger, Newbishop of Worcester, Massachusetts
  13. Daniel Ryan, Newbishop of Springfield, Illinois
  14. Robert Sanchez, Newbishop of Santa Fe, New Mexico (resigned)
  15. William Skylstad, Newbishop of Spokane, Washington (USCCB President)
  16. Lawrence Soens, Newbishop of Sioux City, Iowa
  17. James Sullivan, Newbishop of Fargo, North Dakota (resigned)
  18. Joseph Sullivan, Newbishop of Baton Rouge, Louisiana
  19. Joseph Symonds, Newbishop of Palm Beach, Florida (resigned)
  20. Christopher Weldon, Newbishop of Springfield, Massachusetts
  21. Kendrick Williams, Newbishop of Lexington, Kentucky (resigned)
  22. Patrick Ziemann, Newbishop of Santa Rosa, California (degraded)

Good Catholics, you can just bet that these 22 Newbishops are just the tip of the iceberg. The crimes of Newbishops and major superiors who have committed sex crimes "has not received systematic scrutiny," according to the reporting organization. As the great Roman satirist Juvenal once wrote: Quis custodiet custodes ipsos? Virtually all of the "investigations" performed when children accuse bishops of sex crimes against them are internal; that is, Newchurch judges itself. It is like doctors or lawyers judging other doctors or lawyers. The fix is in!

Traditional Catholic Actor Charges Hollywood with Religious Bigotry

Traditional Catholic Actor James Caviezel Carries the Cross to Calvary
In the 2004 Blockbuster Film, The Passion of the Christ
Caviezel at the Time was the Target of Secular Zionist Interests
Who Tried to Stop the Filming of the Movie
Because They Did Not Want a Traditional Version of the Christ's Sacrifice Depicted
Abraham Foxman of Zionist B'nai B'rith Spewed Bigoted Remarks against Christians

In a May 2, 2011, interview, traditional Catholic actor James Caviezel has publicly charged Hollywood with religious bigotry. He said that since he starred in 2004's blockbuster film, The Passion of the Christ, a traditional depiction of the last hours of the Christ, he has been shunned, even though the film netted 370,000,000 dollars, making it the fifteenth top-grossing American film of all time. Caviezel says that film offers have dried up and that Hollywood has wrecked his career since he played the Christ.

Secular Jewish interests, like Abraham Foxman's B'nai B'rith (Sons of the Jewish Covenant), went ballistic at the time to stop the filming because they did not want a traditional version of the Christ's sacrifice on Calvary to be depicted. Foxman, who at the time of the filming led in making bigoted remarks against Christians, was rebuffed at the theaters, when huge numbers saw the unexpurgated film, often more than once.

Caviezel said that he was well aware he would be the target of anti-Christian bigots, who warned him he would never work in Hollywood again. Caviezel responded philosophically, saying, "We all have to embrace our crosses." Caviezel is a devout traditional Catholic, who assisted at the Traditional Latin Mass offered daily during shooting, and says that his faith is his guide, both personally and professionally. He has recorded a dramatized audiobook of the Holy Bible in the role of the Christ, with Marisa Tomei (Mary Magdalene), Michael York (narrator), Richard Dreyfuss (Moses), Stacy Keach (St. Paul), Louis Gossett Jr. (John), and Kimberly Williams-Paisley (the Blessed Virgin Mary).

Perhaps it was Divine Providence that tapped James Caviezel for the religioius part of a lifetime. Providentially, the actor was in his 33rd year when he played the Christ, the same age at which the Christ is traditionally believed to have suffered crucifixion at the hands of the Jews and the Romans. Caviezel's initials, J.C., also correspond to Jesus Christ. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Daily Mail.]

A Reader Asks: "Is the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary a Holyday of Obligation?"

From: Charles

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

I was surprised when I checked with my traditional(?) priest and two others who claimed to be traditional, to have them tell me that this Monday, August 15, the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, was not a Holyday of Obligation because it fell on a Monday. This doesn't sound traditional to me, but Novus Ordo! I can never recall this feastday not being a Holyday of Obligation.

The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.

Your priest(?) certainly didn't check with us or with the Traditional Liturgical Calendar. We would have told him that he and those other two "priests" were full of it! What you have discovered is that the three "priests" and sites that you are talking about are not traditional at all. Our assumption is that they are in fact untraditional "Motu" (Vatican II Mess of 1962+) sites affiliated with the unCatholic New Order sect.

This case is just more evidence that "Motu" Messes under Benedict-Ratzinger's Great "Motu" Mess Hoax, using the Vatican II Mess of 1962+, are not traditional at all, but Novus Ordo-affiliated frauds, which are not even celebrated by priests, but simulated by Novus Ordo presbyters, who were never ordained in traditional Holy Orders, but merely "installed" under the invalid New Ordinal of 1968 to simulate the invalid Novus Ordo service. Thus, they have no power to offer a valid Traditional Latin Mass at all!

You should check on these sites in the Official Traditional Catholic Directory department of the TRADITIO Traditional Roman Catholic Network. If the site has the frowning face next to it, you know that it is not a traditional Catholic site.

We assure you that the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary is a Holyday of Obligation on whatever day it happens to fall. This is clearly indicated in the traditional Calendar for the Universal Church.

The Bull is being displayed as part of an exhibition entitled Lux in Arcana, consisting of hundreds of other documents from its secret archive, the Archivum Secretum Vaticanum.

The irony of the display of Pope Leo's Bull of Excommunication is that Benedict-Ratzinger is completely ignoring it. Rather, the Modernist leader at the Vatican II Council (1962-1965), then known as "Fr." Ratzinger, now called Benedict, scandalously schmoozes with heretics, not to speak of infidels and pagans. In doing so, he commits Mortal Sins against the First Commandment of God known as syncretism, public worship with false religions, a grave sin against the Theological Virtue of Faith.

Quite the opposite. No "indulgence" can be applied to a sinful event such as this, at which the focal point is the invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Novus Ordo service, a grave sacrilege. Instead of gaining an "indulgence," participants actually commit an objective Mortal Sin, thereby meriting not Heaven, but Hell.

Croatia's Justice Minister has blocked a recent decision of Benedict-Ratzinger to transfer the ownership of a monastery in Dajla from the Newdiocese to the Newbenedictines and has annulled the original granting of the monastery to the local Newdiocese. Benedict-Ratzinger, who personally intervened to engineer the transfer, is said to be "astonished." Newpope apparently botched the negotiations when he signed a transfer order, which the Croatian government rejected because he evidently failed to check that the Newbenedictines had proper title to the monastery, now the property of the Croatian state.

Benedict-Ratzinger apparently botched his June 2011 junket to Croatia and earned the ire of the Croatian government, which had previously agreed to work "in a spirit of collaboration." Croatia is one of the few countries in Europe whose citizens still claim an allegiance to Newchurch. One by one, countries in Europe are rejecting Benedict-Ratzinger's papacy, particularly because of the moral cesspool that he has introduced into Europe with his mishandling of Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust.

Perpetrated by Twenty Paedophile Presybters and Their Newbishop

He Is the Latest Outed Newbishop, under Whom "Hundreds of Children" Were Raped
By Twenty of His Paedophile Presbyters
A New Report Describes the Newchurch Holocaust as "Horrific"
And Outlines a Catalogue of Sex Crimes by Newchurch against Irish Children

A shocking new report on Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust against Irish children, and children around the world, reveals how up to 20 paedophile presbyters raped hundreds of children in just one diocese (Raphoe) over a forty-year period during which, Card. Ratzinger, then Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger, was in charge of sex crimes for Newchurch. Ireland's National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church has so far issued scathing reports on six Irish Newchurch dioceses. Twenty more Newdioceses remain to be investigated.

The report reveals how Benedict-Ratzinger and his agents mistreated the child victims and their families. The National Board for Safeguarding Children in the Catholic Church will be officially released by the end of August 2011. The contents of the report are described as "horrific" and outline a catalogue of sex crimes by Newchurch presbyters against young children. "There were hundreds and hundreds of victims, and they were abused again and again while the [New Order] Church actively prevented investigations by the civil authorities. The Raphoe diocese, like others, was only interested in protecting the [New Order] Church and not the victims."

When Ireland's national police, the Gardai, became involved in a number of investigations, Benedict-Ratzinger's New Order Church was "uncooperative, obstructive and misled detectives." Newchurch refused to hand over any files to the Gardai. The Irish Government is now doing what Ratzinger and Benedict failed to do: safeguard children in the New Order Church.

Good Catholics, the Newbishop of Raphoe, Philip Boyce, who has presided over the sex crimes for sixteen years, is already, before the report has even been officially released, playing the Newchurch game of denying everything. If the previous history of such denials holds, it won't be long before Boyce admits partial truths, then the whole truth. Then he will go into "retirement" with full benefits, while the lives and bodies of hundreds of children under his watch have been defiled. {Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Irish Independent.]

A Reader Asks: "How Does One Respond
To Vatican II's Uncatholic Notion of 'Inculturation'?"

From: Shannon

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

Defenders of Vatican II "inculturation" in Novus Ordo services allege that the Church borrowed from pre-Christian Rome, so why not from modern cultures? How does one respond to Vatican II's unCatholic notion of "inculturation."?

The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.

By the disposition of Divine Providence, the Roman Catholic Church has its roots in classical Rome, which preceded it and which prepared the world for it. These classical Roman roots were Christianized with the advent of Christ and His Church. It is an entirely different thing to have the perfection attained upon this foundation by the Traditional Latin Mass to be later vulgarized by Vatican II (1962-1965) with modern pagan elements, which followed that perfection, with the result of introducing into the true Mass an im-perfection, that is, a degradation of that perfection.

"Inculturation" is the unCatholic Vatican II notion (Sacrosanctum Concilium, sec. 38, 40), in which a "radical" adaptation of the liturgy is said to be "needed in some places and circumstances." As the Modernist Vatican II engineers, including "Fr." Ratzinger, provided with respect to so many unCatholic and even heretically-odiferous statements, "some places and circumstances" became a deliberate time-bomb for later extension of the sacrileges to "all places and all circumstances."

According to Roman Catholic Tradition, the Traditional Latin Mass (before the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini's modernization starting in 1951) in all its essentials was passed on by St. Peter, the first pope, to the Church. The Apostles themselves, according to St. Ambrose, worked at its elaboration. It reached its complete perfection with Popes St. Damasus (fourth century) and St. Gregory the Great (sixth century). As the great liturgical scholar Fr. Adrian Fortescue wrote, this Mass is "the most venerable in all Christendom, with a history of unbroken use far longer than that of any Eastern rite, there being no doubt that the essential parts of the Mass are of Apostolic origin."

Benedict-Ratzinger Is Denounced as a Spendthrift for His Spain Junket
He Parties while Italy, Vatican City, and Spain Sink into Default

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Spain's Newchurch Clergy and Laity Are Protesting in the Face Of
Benedict-Ratzinger's 85,000,000-dollar "Catholic Woodstock"
Being Staged at a Time when Spain Is Sinking into Financial Default
They Charge that Newpope Is an Out-of-touch Spendthrift
Matching U.S. President Barack Obama

The cost of Benedict-Ratzinger's junket to Madrid, Spain, on August 18-21, 2011, for the "Catholic Woodstock" known as World Youth Day, is coming under fire from his own Newchurch, both clergy and laity. They charge that Benedict-Ratzinger is an out-of-touch spendthrift, like U.S. President Barack Obama, when people are suffering from an economy that is in severe recession. For his shivaree Benedict-Ratzinger has expended more than 85,000,000 U.S. dollars at a time when Spain, Italy, and even his own Vatican City State are on the verge of financial default. That amount is twice the amount that Spain has cut from its education budget in a country that has the highest unemployment rate in Europe, 20 per cent.

Benedict-Ratzinger apparently thinks that nothing is too good for himself. He has built a 200-metre-long stage at the Cuatro Vientos aerodrome and decorated it with a giant metal tree, where he will perform the invalid Novus Ordo service on the last day of his visit on August 21, 2011. He has also demanded the construction of hundreds of fountains and twenty giant screens at the aerodrome. Truly, Benedict-Ratzinger is the kind of profligate to whom even the corrupt Roman Emperor Nero plays "second fiddle." And whence is Benedict-Ratzinger getting the money? Organizers say 80 per cent will be extorted from the poor young pilgrims themselves. They will not get the huge tax rebates that an almost-bankrupt Spain will be giving for corporate donations.

The Newchurch Priests [Sic] Forum has criticized Benedict-Ratzinger's profligacy, since Spain, in its economic recession, has had to slash social spending and public-worker salaries. Opponents of Benedict-Ratzinger's visit are calling for a boycott of the over 100 corporate sponsors of the event, including Coca-Cola, telecom giant Telefonica, and Banco Santander. Nearly 150 groups that oppose Benedict-Ratzinger's visit plan to stage protests against against Newpope's extravagant junket on August 17, 2011, on the eve of his arrival. Spain's 15-M Movement is also planning a series of protests during his stay in Madrid. Spanish police are concerned that the kind of violent protests that have erupted in London will be repeated in Madrid against Newpope.

The Executive Director of the Newpapal shivaree has said that Newchurch has no choice but to pander to Novus Ordo youth, who, after the extremist papacies of John Paul II-Wojtyla and Benedict-Ratzinger, look to Newchurch to stage a "Catholic Woodstock" for them. Moreover, the dour Benedict-Ratzinger zealously craves to make himself over as a Novus Ordo rockstar and needs an expensive stage to do so.

A Reader Writes: "When I Was in Hospital, a Presbyter Forced a Novus Ordo Cookie into My Mouth
Which I Spat Out!"

From: William

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

I spent some time in hospital recently. While I was walking in the hall, a Novus Ordo presbyter passed by me and, before I cold react, forced a Novus Ordo cookie into my mouth. When I realized what had happened, I spat it out into a trash can. These phony Newchurch presbyters seem to have little regard for what they regard as a "sacrament."

The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.

We have heard over the years since Vatican II of cases where hospital patients have been wheeled, literally kicking and screaming, to a Novus Ordo service against their will, or having a Novus Ordo cookie forced down their throat. You did exactly the right thing in spitting out the unwanted sacrilege. Traditional Catholics who are in hospitals should have it entered clearly on their chart that they want to have nothing to do with Novus Ordo staff at the hospital.

Pseudo-traditional Bishop Decrees that "Motu" Bishops and Presbyters
Must Simulate the Invalid Novus Ordo Service In Order to Be "In Communion" with Newchurch

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Fernando Rifan

Pseudo-traditional Bishop Fernando Rifan, in His Novus Ordo Get-up
Rifan Committed One of the Most Mortal Sins that a Priest Can Commit
He Faked What He Believed to Be a "Mass," Then Claimed to Be Pretending
Now He Has Decreed that all Pseudo-traditional Presbyters in His "Indult" Group
Must Commit the Same Most Mortal Sin to be "In Communion" with the New Order Sect

Pseudo-traditional bishop Fernando Rifan, Newchurch's Apostolic Administrator of the Personal Apostolic Administration of Saint John Mary Vianney, Brazil, is a fake, who has publicly committed one of the Most Mortal Sins possible, the simulation of a Mass -- or at least what he thought was a Mass, the Novus Ordo service. Rifan was appointed a so-called "indult" bishop by the Unblessed John Paul II-Wojtyla to contest the group of priests in Campos, Brazil, who never went over to the New Order because of the courage of Antonio de Castro-Mayer, the traditional bishop who refused to implement the Novus Ordo in his diocese until his death.

Rifan, on the other hand, was a Benedict Arnold, who pretended to be "traditional" when JPII needed a ringer to contest traditional Catholicism. You may remember that Rifan, as was covered in these Daily Commentaries from the TRADITIO Fathers at the time, was caught by the press performing a Novus Ordo service. Rifan lied to the press by denying that fact. Then a videotape was produced documenting the charge. Rifan then changed his tune and said that when he performed the Novus Ordo service, he wasn't really intending to say a Mass, but just pretending so that he wouldn't be dinged by Newchurch "authorities." Recently, Rifan justified his Most Mortal Sin by decreeing:

On certain occasions, the bishop [sic] and his priests [sic] may concelebrate Holy Mass in the current form...; it is normal, correct, and good, because it demonstrates that we are Catholics in full communion with the whole [New]church of the New Order.

By this admission JPI's pseudo-traditionalist plant admitted that he had committed one of the Most Mortal Sins a priest can commit, the Sin of Simulation, which according to Catholic Moral Theology, a priest is never allowed to commit under any circumstances, even to save his life. Simulation is a form of Sacrilege against the First Commandment of God, and consists in performing a sacramental action without the intention of conferring a Sacrament, although others think that a Sacrament is being administered.

Good Catholics, such is the vile immorality of those associated with the New Order sect: lying and sacrilegious, publicly committing the Most Mortal Sins without shame. This is the characteristic of all Newbishops and presbyters associated with the Newchurch of the New Order, whom true Catholics are required to shun completely, together with their instrument of deception, the Mess of 1962+."

A Reader Asks: "Could You Give an Explanation of the Feastdays
Of Sts. Philomena and Jean-Marie Vianney?"

From: Jim

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

You did not list St. Philomena, the Patron Saint of the Traditional Catholic Movement, on your August 11 Daily Commentary. Also, you list St. John Vianney on August 9, but I thought his feastday was on August 8. Could you give an explanation about the feastdays of Sts. Philomena and Jean-Marie Vianney?

The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.

St. Philomena, who is known as the Patron Saint of Traditional Catholic Movement, was canonized by Pope Gregory XVI in 1837, and her feastday was assigned as August 11. (There is another St. Philomena of San Severino, whose feastday is July 5.) There are too many Saints (thousands of them) for each to have a Proper Mass in the Missale Romanum. Thus, St. Philomena was not assigned a liturgical feast in the traditional Missale Romanum.

There was, however, a Mass formulary to be found in the supplemental section of the traditional Missale Romanum entitled Missae Propriae Quae in Aliquibus Locis Celebrari Possunt [Proper Masses, Which Can Be Celebrated in Some Places]. Such Masses are not celebrated in the Universal Church, but only in certain places, usually associated particularly with the Saint, which have been given special permission to celebrate a Proper Mass.

After February 14, 1961, in the period of the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini's pre-Novus Ordo "modernizations" (1951-1968), St. Philomena was stricken entirely. For further information, click on PHILOMEN: St. Philomena, Wonder-Worker: Patron Saint of the Traditional Roman Catholic Movement in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics).

St. Jean-Marie Vianney's traditional feastday of August 9 was similarly moved in 1960, during the period of Bugnini's "modernizations," to August 8. Those who cling to the "Mess of 1962+" seem to be quite ignorant of the fact that that Mess is not the last "traditional" version of the Mass. Rather, it is, in significant part, the work of the same Hannibal Bugnini, who fabricated the invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Novus Ordo service of 1969, which was introduced gradually from 1951. For further information, click on the TRADITIO Network's Traditional Latin Mass, Divine Office & Sacraments.

Traditional Catholics need to be aware that there are various untraditional calendars in circulation, including those conforming to Hannibal Buginini's "modernizations" included in the Mess of 1962+.

It's a Bird, It's a Plane, It's a Newchurch "Reconciliation Boat"
Since 1968 Newchurch Has Dumped the Sacrament of Penance

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Novus Ordo 'Confessional'

The "Reconciliation Boats" that Will Replace Confessionals at World Youth Day 2011
In 1968 Newchurch Stopped Explicitly Conferring upon Presbyters the Power to Forgive Sin
In 1973 Newchurch Dumped the Sacrament of Penance Completely
And Replaced it with an Invalid Protestantized "Rite of Reconciliation"

What is the best complement to Benedict-Ratzinger's "Catholic Woodstock," known as World Youth Day, to be staged August 16-21, 2011, in Madrid, Spain? Naturally, the invalid Novus Ordo cookies and Kool-Aid will be served. But now it has been announced that phony "confessions" will also be staged.

Just as Novus Ordo "communion" is phony, so are its "confessions." First off, in 1968 Bugnini's Protestantized New Ordinal dropped the conferral to Newchurch presbyters (who are not, after all, priests, but ministers) of the power to forgive sin. To the contrary, in the traditional Catholic Sacrament of Holy Orders, the ordaining bishop, seated with his mitre on, lays his hands on each new priest, saying:

Accipe Spiritum Sanctum: quorum remiseris peccata, remittuntur ei:
et quorum retinueris, retenta sunt.

Receive the Holy Ghost: whose sins thou shalt forgive, they are forgiven them:
and whose sins thou shalt retain, they are retained.

This explicit conferral to Newchurch presbyters of the power to forgive sin was eliminated in 1968. Moreover, in 1973 the Newchurch of the New Order dumped the Sacrament of Penance and replaced it with Bugnini's Protestantized Rite of Reconciliation, complete with its pseudo-psychiatric "Reconciliation couches."

At World Youth Day 2011, there will be 200 Reconciliation boats: oddities resembling the sails of a ship open to the hearing of all. 2,000 presbyters, who are not priests, will simulate (that is, fake) a pseudo-sacrament that will conclude with the distribution of invalid Novus Ordo cookies and Kool-Aid on Sunday, August 21, 2011, at a full-blown Novus Ordo Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service simulated by Benedict-Ratzinger, the Paedophile Pope, himself. Once again clueless Newchurchers will be defrauded by a Conciliar pope of the true Mass and Sacraments.

A Reader Asks: "What Does the Parable of the Unjust Steward Really Mean?"

From: Barbara

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

My husband and I are puzzled by the Parable of the Unjust Steward (Luke 16:1-9) from the Gospel for the Eighth Sunday after Pentecost. The steward is stealing. How can an injustice be used as an example for us? What does the Parable of the Unjust Steward really mean?

The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.

The steward is not praised for stealing. To the contrary, at the beginning of the Parable, it is made clear that the steward was fired for his immoral behavior. The point of the Parable is to commend the steward's Prudence (Practical Wisdom, the Queen of the Moral Virtues) in preparing for his secular future. All the more, says Our Lord, should the "children of light," that is, Christians, be more zealous than the "children of this world," that is non-Christians, in preparing to merit a spiritual future in Heaven.

Canadian Mounties Get Their Man, That Is, Newchurch Bishop
They Say that Lahey's Child Torture Collection "Among the Worst" Ever Seen

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Raymond Lahey

Newchurch Bishop Raymond Lahey, Now Behind Bars
Lahey Was Caught in May 2011 by the Canadian Mounties at Ottawa International Airport
And Pled Guilty to Possessing and Importing Child Pornography
Consisting of Hundreds of Images and Stories of Children Being Tortured
Benedict-Ratzinger Has Not Punished Lahey in Any Way
And Regards Him "in Good Standing" in the Newchurch of the New Order

The notion that it is only Newchurch presbyters who are part of Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust is blatantly false. Newchurch bishops are personally mired in sex crimes too. Two dozen Newbishops are listed as implicated in sex crimes against children in the United States alone. Most recently, Raymond Lahey, Newbishop of Nova Scotia, Canada, has been convicted as a child pornographer. A Canadian Mountie detective said that Lahey's collection of hundreds of "gruesome" pornographic images of young children being tortured is "among the worst" that he has seen in hundreds of cases. Among the contents of Lahey’s laptop and smart phone were pornographic stories about children, which, like some of the photos, depicted torture.

Lahey was picked up when he tried to enter Ottawa International Airport in September 2009, when he tried to enter Ottawa International Airport. On August 4, 2011, Lahey appeared in an Ottawa court for sentencing in this child-porn case that has rocked his Nova Scotia archdiocese of Antigonish. Lahey pled guilty in May 2001 to charges of possessing and importing child pornography. He was imprisoned from that time.

At sentencing the criminal Newbishop didn't even dare to wear the clerics that he had disgraced. He was dressed in a grey sportcoat, khaki pants and a tan shirt with the top few buttons undone, as if he were himself a male prostitute trying to get "tricks." The Mounties are encouraging members of the Antigonish Newdiocese, who "saw, suspected, or suffered these crimes to come forward and tell their story to civil — not Church — authorities," as Benedict-Ratzinger's hierarchy have been ignoring sex crimes reported through Newchurch channels. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Chronicle Herald.]

Good Catholics, shocking as Lahey's behavior may have been, that of Benedict-Ratzinger is worse. Lahey pled guilty in May 2011, and Benedict-Ratzinger has taken no action at all. Lahey, like virtually every other bishop involved in sex crimes, remains "in good standing" with the New Order sect. Good God, Josef, your bishop admits his crimes. What more do you need to fire your lieutenant and cast him into the exterior darkness, "where there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth" (Matthew 8:12/DRV)?

As Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch Barbarians Destroy Boston's 1944 Marian Memoral Shrine
Newbishop O'Malley Needed Money to Pay Damages to Raped Children
So He Sold the Property off to the "Jesuit Catholic" College of Boston, Which Demanded the Demolition

We TRADITIO Fathers have called Benedict-Ratzinger and his Newchurch of the New Order worse barbarians than Attila the Hun. At least Attila yielded to the pleadings of Pope Leo the Great not to sack Rome, whereas Benedict-Ratzinger's agents around the world have been destroying traditional churches at a rate that would have scandalized even Attila.

We have covered the sacrilege and desecration perpetrated by Sean O'Malley, Newchurch archbishop of Boston, Massachusetts, in the matter of the memorial Chapel of the Blessed Virgin Mary, which stood atop the tomb of Boston's William Cardinal O'Connell (1907-1944), as prescribed in his will. O'Malley sold the Marian chapel to the "Jesuit Catholic" College of Boston, headed by its president, "Fr." William Leahy, who, like a good New Order barbarian, demanded the demolition as part of the sale.

Newchurch dioceses and the Newjesuit Order have been raping children to such a degree that, in order to pay off the amount of court-ordered damages, they have been sacrilegiously destroying right and left traditional churches and chapels, even those supposedly dedicated in perpetuity to the deceased. O'Malley, Leahy, and the Newchurch hierarchy are sucking out the monetary of traditional churches and chapels like soulless vampires.

So, on August 3, 2011, Newcardinal O'Malley ordered in the demolition team. With the collusion of Newjesuit "Fr." Leahy, O'Malley's demolition crew acted like Modernistic Huns on a rampage. They broke off Our Lord's Cross and threw it on a trash heap. They cast out statues of the Holy Angels into the dirt. By the time the Newchurch barbarians were through, only a few concrete steps were left of the Blessed Virgin Mary's shrine. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Boston Globe.]

Good Catholics, this sacrilege was perpetrated under the authority of Benedict-Ratzinger's New Order sect, to which the Motarian sellouts loving Bugnini's "Mass of 1962" and Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX sellouts, are drooling to be "obedient." Well, the Motarians and Fellay need only remember Our Lord's own condemnation of their activities: "My house is the house of prayer. But you have made it a den of thieves" (Luke 19:46/DRV).

The TRADITIO Network Reaches Its 14,000,000th Reader
The Network Provides a Unique Perspective of over Half a Century from before Vatican II

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

On August 5, 2011, the Feastday of the Dedication of Our Lady's Archbasilica in Rome in the seventeenth year of its apostolate on the internet, the TRADITIO Network reached its 14,000,000th reader. TRADITIO was the first traditional Roman Catholic site to appear on the World Wide Web and was founded on the Feastday of St. Michael the Archangel, September 29, 1994. We were here even before Newvatican was, even before was!

We thank the Lord for our over 14,000,000 readers over these years and for our hundreds of dedicated correspondents from 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, and at Traditional Latin Mass sites around the world. TRADITIO was determined by an Alexis-Amazon statistical survey to be the most read traditional Roman Catholic web site on the World Wide Web.

In their Daily Commentaries, the TRADITIO Fathers do not just copy news reports or the uninformed notions of johnny-come-lately "bloggers" in secular and religious publications, who in fact have very little background or understanding of the Traditional Catholic Movement. Nor is TRADITIO Network enslaved to any particular organization's viewpoint. Instead, the TRADITIO Network provides the hard-hitting, independent analysis and perspective of over half a century of Roman Catholic experience, even from before Vatican II.

The TRADITIO Network is avidly read within the highest bowels of at Newrome and Menzingen (SSPX). In addition to the Daily Commentaries from the Fathers, lively commentary on Church news from the traditional perspective, TRADITIO's other fifteen departments provide resources and materials for its readers to study and learn about the traditional Roman Catholic Faith.

We are particularly touched by the many thousands of messages that we have received from former Newchurchers of the New Order, including Motarians, who say that they have been converted to the traditional Roman Catholic Faith and the fully Traditional Latin Mass because of TRADITIO's uncompromising, independent commentaries and articles. The TRADITIO Network is one of many means through which Our Lord appears be working out the Traditional Catholic Restoration of the 21st century.

To Avoid Giving a Deposition under Oath about His Involvement in Sex Crimes against Children

Two Paedophile-facilitators, Necardinals Rigali (Left) and Bevilacqua
The Two Were Both Accused of Allowing Their Presbyters to Rape and Sodomize Children
Two Grand Juries Have Exposed Their Corruption
Which Has Made Philadelphia the Newchurch's "Homosexual Brothel of the East Coast"

The Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, District Attorney has filed a motion to force Newcardinal Anthony Bevilacqua to give testimony under oath about his involvement in sex crimes against children. Newcardinal Bevilacqua was the superior of Monsignor William Lynn, who is facing trial for child endangerment and conspiracy over abetting the crimes of paedophile presbyters against children while he was Bevilacqua's right-hand man as Secretary for Clergy. Lynn has been charged with assigning paedophile presbyters to Newparishes where they had unsupervised access to children. These presbyter then raped and sodomized the children as young as 11 under their "protection." The Grand Jury concluded that Lynn "was carrying out the cardinal's [Bevilacqua's] policies exactly as the cardinal directed."

Lynn is the first member of the Newchurch hierarchy in the United States to be charged with criminal conspiracy and child endangerment. Bevilacqua has pleaded illness to get out of testifying. One cannot imagine the "illness" that his corrupt regime has imposed upon the innocent children who were his pawns in a far-ranging rape holocaust by his Newchurch presbyters. In its February 2011 report, the Grand Jury accused Bevilacqua with "knowing and deliberate actions" as Newarchbishop that "endangered thousands of children."

Newchurch's Own Child-protection Chief Is Himself Caught with 4,000 Child Porn Pictures
And Has Pled Guilty to Twelve Counts of Child Pornography

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

The Juvenal's age-old Latin question, Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?, with which he satirized the corruption of the Rome of his time, took on a special relevance for Newchurch, as its Child-protection Chief was himself caught by police in March 2011 with 4,000 child-porn pictures. Newchurch's officials who are sex criminals hide under all guises. Christopher Jarvis is a father of four. On July 31, 2011, Jarvis was arrested with 4,000 child-porn pictures that he downloaded to his personal computer. Jarvis was employed by Newchurch to investigate crimes by Novus Ordo presbyter criminals, but it turns out that he was one of the criminals himself!

Jarvis, whom Newchurch had employed in the U.K. for nine years as a "child safeguarding officer," pled guilty to twelve counts of "making, possessing and distributing indecent images," when he appeared before magistrates in Plymouth. He is likely to face jail when he returns to court for sentencing in September 2011. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Sunday Mirror.]

The "Unblessed" John Paul II-Woytyla, who is day by day being revealed as more implicated in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal, is rapidly becoming a non-entity. Since its opening in March 2001, the John Paul II Cultural Center in Washington, D.C., can scarcely scare up a dozen tourists a day. The Center was headed to bankruptcy until the Novus Ordo Knights of Columbus on August 2, 2011, put in 22,000,000 dollars, which is scarecely a third of the 60,000,000 dollars that Newchurch has already lost to support this sump-hole of Novus Ordo anti-culture.

The Knights of Columbus itself, once a Catholic organization, long ago went Novus Ordo and has been implicated in several scandals since Vatican II (1962-1965). The Center was architecturally modeled after Washington, D.C.'s Watergate Complex, where burglaries associated with Richard Nixon, led to Nixon's resignation in 1974 as President of the United States. The Unblessed Center was originally the idea of then Detroit, Michigan, Newcardinal Adam Maida, to glorify Polism (Newchurch is no longer Catholic, but, like Protestantism, nationalistic). The Detroit Newarchdiocese kicked in more than half of the money, which has now gone to Hades.

The current Newarchbishop of Detroit, Allen Vigneron, formerly of Oakland, California, where his Newdiocese was involved in some of the worst sex crimes against children, will take 20,000,000 dollars of the Novus Ordo Knights' money to try to recoup its loss, as the Detroit Newarchdiocese also has plenty of damages to pay to children raped by its Newclergy.

Which John Paul II-Woytyla Started in 1985 and Benedict-Ratzinger Has Continued
Contrary to His Promise to End These "Rock Festivals"

Benedict-Ratzinger, the "Paedophile Pope," already stinging from his Newchurch's virtual explusion from Ireland for complicity in sex crimes against children, is now taking more hits for violating his promise to end the "rock festivals" sponsored by his New Order, called World Youth Days, which have been characterized by the consumption of booze, the shooting of drugs, and even fornication in the stands while Newpope simulates the invalid Novus Ordo Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service for the frenzied youth. World Youth Day was established by the "Pagan Pope," John Paul II-Woytyla, as a sycretistic (condemned oecumenical) shivaree for all youth, whatever their religious persuasion.

Monsignor Miguel Delgado Galindo, Newpope's undersecretary of the Pontifical Council for the Laity, was clearly on the defensive when he tried to deny the reality in telling L’Osservatore Romano on June 18, 2011, that World Youth Day is not a "Catholic Woodstock." He said that "it is a stupendous occasion for evangelizing youth, a marvelous way for a personal encounter with Jesus in the presence of the [New]pope” as rock star.

Apparently, the deluded monsignor's "apologia" for the Newchurch Woodstock didn't take. The director of the New Order's Press Office had to be sent as the next sacrificial spokesman for Benedict-Ratzinger, to say in his weekly commentary that World Youth Day "will help the youth of the digital age to be 'protagonists' in the proclamation [read: profanation] of Christ. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by L'Osservatore Romano.]

Pseudo-Catholics, be sure to show up at Madrid, Spain, this August 15, 2011. The opportunities for booze, drugs, and sex while Benedict-Ratzinger, as rock star, simulates the pagan Novus Ordo service on the Holyday of the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, are not to be missed!

He "Recommends" Taking the Novus Ordo Cookie on the Tongue Kneeling
But as Head of the Novus Ordo Service, Doesn't Require It
Since the Novus Ordo Cookie Is Invalid Anyway, What Difference Does It Make?
Says One Former Newchurcher: "It Is a Happy Meal Served by the Mac Church!"

Newchurchers are deserting Benedict-Ratzinger's corrupt New Order by the droves, and the New Order hierarchy knows it. Newchurch has an invalid Protestantized service (it is not a Catholic Mass) and phony cookies and Kool-Aid for "communion." And Newchurchers know it; just look at how they treat with it with derision. But in order to draw at least a few "conservatives" back, Newchurch has made an effort in recent years to use the same cover-up techniques that it has used to cover up its sex crimes against children.

So how does the Newchurch hierarchy deal with the obvious invalidity of its cookie? The New Order tries to cover it over with a little "Motu" Latin, or now one Newcardinal wants Newchurchers to munch the cookie on the tongue while kneeling to make it valid. Undoubtedly, the clueless Newchurch Neocon talking-heads will praise this Newcardinal to the skies while shamelessly continuing to pander to the invalid New Order!

The joke is that the Newcardinal is Antonio Canizares, the head of Newvatican's Congregation for Divine Workship and the Discipline of the Sacraments [Sic], who could require that Newchurchers kneel and receive on the tongue, but he won't. Like Benedict-Ratzinger and his other lieutenants, he occasionally talks conservatively, but in fact refuses to carry the false propaganda into action. Thus, he will only "recommend" it, so that Newchurchers can continue to munch their cookies and swill their Kool-Aid, just as always. Moreover, Canizares didn't even announce his "recommendation" in Newrome, but waited until he was hidden far off the beaten path -- in Lima, Peru, of all places!

As one former Newchurcher asked, what difference does it make what you do with an invalid Novus Ordo cookie? "It is a happy meal service by the Mac Church!"

A Reader Asks: "Which Is the Correct Church?"

From: Gregory

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

I have been reading a number of articles about Eastern Orthodoxy. I'm not really sure which side is the right one: Roman Catholicism or Eastern Orthodoxy. The Roman Catholic Church says that it was the so-called Eastern Orthodox sects who separated themselves from the true Church, though the Eastern Orthodox sects say that the Roman Catholic Church separated from the true Church. Which is the correct Church?

The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.

The Eastern schism, actually involving many schisms over the centuries, like all schisms also involves heresies. In addition to denying the dogmatic Councils of the Lateran, Trent, and Vatican I, Eastern "Orthodoxy" denies the Immaculate Conception, the indissolubility of marriage, Purgatory, and the procession of the Holy Ghost from both the Father and the Son.

Realize too that modern Eastern "Orthodoxy" is no longer so Apostolic, as it claims to be, but has introduced unApostolic tongues and practices. In many ways, the Eastern "Orthodox" sects are as "modernized" as the Bugnini fabrications of the 1950s leading up to the Novus Ordo sect in the West.

A Reader Asks: "Can Catholics Pray to the Holy Souls in Purgatory?"

Although the Novus Ordo "Canonization" Process Is Clearly Defective
Traditionally-canonized Saints May Be Prayed to for Their Intercession
And Perhaps -- This Is Not Certain -- the Holy Souls in Purgatory

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

My sister-in-law recently made a statement concerning praying to (not for) the Holy Souls, or a particular soul, in Purgatory for intercession. Is this a traditional teaching of the Church? I for one have never heard of this practice, as we don't know who is in Hell or Purgatory. As for who is in Heaven, a traditionally-canonized Saint would be somebody I would think one might pray to for intercession. Can Catholics pray to the Holy Souls in Purgatory?

The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.

Intercession by the Holy Souls in Purgatory is not a definitive teaching of the Church. However, some traditional theologians have admitted the possibility that the Holy Souls in Purgatory can intercede for us. We know that they will be Saints eventually, at least by the time that Purgatory is done away with at the General Judgment. That is why we call them the "Holy" Souls. They will see Heaven and never be damned in Hell.

The difficulty, as you indicate, is that we don't know which souls are in Purgatory, as opposed to those who are traditionally canonized with certainty -- discounting Novus Ordo "saints," who are not canonized with certainty and admit of St. Thomas Aquinas' exception for factual error. For further information, click on FAQ10: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Beliefs? in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics), in the section "Canonizations."

What all true Catholics certainly should do daily is to pray for the Holy Souls in Purgatory and have Masses offered for their intention. It is most fitting for a Catholic to include in his nightly prayers the traditional antiphon for the Holy Souls:

Requiem aeternam dona eis, Domine;
Et lux perpetua luceat eis.

[Eternal rest grant unto them, O Lord;
And let the perpetual light shine upon them].

This short antiphon is little enough that we can do in Christian piety for our deceased parents, grandparents, pastors, teachers, devoted friends, and benefactors. Yet many traditional Catholics fail to perform even this small perform.

Was Presbyter John Corapi of the EWTN Novus Ordo Charismatic Cable Network a Con Artist?
New Information Revealed Leads to This Conclusion

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

More facts are now coming out about presbyter John Corapi, one of the "personalities" on the EWTN Novus Ordo Charismatic Cable Network, who became a cult figure among the Novus Ordo fanatics. Corapi has been "placed on leave" by his order because its investigations showed that he was involved in booze, drugs, and illicit sex. Yet his Novus Ordo cultists maintain that Corapi was done in by the Devil, whereas he was actually done in by his own sins!

Corapi is not even the conning presbyter's real name. He was born John Anthony Coradi and changed his name just before becoming a "religious" of the Novus Ordo sect. In his prior life he went by the name "Tony Coradi" and was also known by that name to the locals in Kalispell, Montana, whence he hailed. Like many con artists of the Newchurch of the New Order, presbyter Corapi, alias Coradi, lived a dual life. Although a Novus Ordo "religious," who purportedly took a vow of poverty, Corapi/Coradi, right under the nose of his incompetent order, amassed a personal fortune, including real estate holdings valued in excess of 1,000,000 U.S. dollars, numerous luxury vehicles, motorcycles, an ATV, a boat dock, and several motorboats.

While assigned as a presbyter in Sacramento, California, Corapi/Coradi was arrested for driving while drunk. Kallispellers who knew Coradi indicated that the presbyter's duplicity was clear years ago. Many Novus Ordo sectarians had trouble reconciling the made-up Corapi of EWTN with the Novus Ordo "religious" who owned a house in a ritzy community and possessed numerous expensive "toys." They saw Coradi always at large, not in his religious community. Kallispeller says that they saw this Novus Ordo/EWTN fiasco coming. The Novus Ordo Charismatics running EWTN kept Corapi's secret as long as they could; then the scandal blew the network all to Hell, literally!

Newdiocese Official Is the First Newchurch Prelate to Be Tried for Conspiracy and Child Endangerment
The Case of Monsignor Lynn Opens All Newchurch Prelates to Prosecution in the United States

William Lynn

Newchurch Official Msgr. William Lynn Leaves a U.S. Criminal Court
Where a Judge Has Ordered Him to Face Trial for Complicity and Child Endangerment
Because as a Newchurch Official, He Turned Children over to Paedophile Presbyters
His Case Stands to Open a Floodgate of Prosecutions against Newchurch Prelates
Who Knowingly Placed Paedopiles in Charge of Children
And, in Accordance with Benedict-Ratzinger's Policy, Covered up Their Sex Crimes

A monsignor who is the first Newchurch prelate in the United States charged with transferring paedophile presbyters to positions in charge of children will be tried alongside four presbyters accused of rape. So ruled a Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, judge on July 29, 2011. The judge denied requests to have the charges against Newcardinal Bevilacqua's Secretary of Clergy, Msgr. William Lynn, dismissed because he was not personally in charge of the children. Lynn will stand trial with the four other presbyters charged with child rape because of his own conspiracy and child endangerment in transferring presbyters he knew to be paedophile predators to have charge of children.

The charges involve the multiple rape of a ten-year-old boy in the Novus Ordo sacristy. Lynn and his co-conspirators face felony charges. The judge denied Lynn's pitiful attempt to assert an appeal that he was not personally in charge of the children. A child-victims' advocate stated: the Newchurch of the New Order is "a rigid, secretive, tightly-knit institution. So when crimes happen, it's disingenuous for church officials to pretend that everyone involved is disconnected from one another."

A blistering Grand Jury report of February 10, 2011, castigated Newcardinal Anthony Bevilacqua and his successor, Newcardinal Justin Rigali, for their involvement in suborning the crimes of child rape. Bevilacqua, perhaps weighed down by his personal guilt, has sunk into dementia, and Rigali recently secreted himself into early "retirement."

A Reader Asks: "Are Catholics Christians?"

From: Valerie

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

I am confused about whether Catholics are Christians. I don't get why some people say that Catholics are not Christians, and others say that they are. I don't know if Catholics are considered Christians or if Christianity is a totally different religion. I say this because I listen to Christian music, and yet I feel like I am betraying my Catholic religion.

The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.

All Catholics are Christians, that is, followers of Christ, but not all Christians are Catholics. Christians who are not Catholics are termed "heretics," literally, adhering to "other" (unorthodox) opinions. Things heretical must be avoided by Catholics, as they present an occasion of sin against the Theological Virtue of Faith.

If by "Christian music," you mean music associated with non-Catholic religious sects, this should normally be avoided. Fortunately, there are many beautiful pieces of Catholic religious music written by great composers (Bach, Vivaldi, Beethoven, Mozart, Haydn, Dvorak, etc.), which are edifying to the mind and the soul.

Newchurch Is Charged with Allowing a "Trio of Paedophiles" to Operate with Impunity
The Highest Newchurch Official Ever Has Been Charged with Complicity and Child Endangerment

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Charles Engelhardt Edward Avery Bernard Shero

Presbyter Engelhardt, Presbyter Avery, and Novus Ordo Teacher Shero
Described by Police as a Newchurch "Trio of Paedophiles"
The Three Are Charged with Raping a Ten-year-old Child
After Newcardinal Bevilacqua Had Knowingly Sent the Boy to Their Newparish
Bevilacqua's Monsignor Secretary for Clergy Has Been Charged with Complicity and Child Endangerment

Acting on indictments returned by the Philadelphia Grand Jury, prosecutors on July 27, 2011, charged the Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Newchurch archdiocese, with letting "a trio of paedophiles" commit sex crimes upon a ten-year-old boy. The trio, comprising presbyters Charles Englehardt and Edward Avery and Novus Ordo teacher Bernard Shero, operated out of St. Jerome Newparish, to which Philadelphia's Newcardinal Anthony Bevilacqua sent the boy.

Newcardinal Bevilacqua knowingly allowed the paedophile presbyter Avery to hear children's "reconciliations" and to "chaperone" school dances and other places of assignation. Bevilacqua was charged with "callous indifference to the safety and well-being of children left in the care and custody of the [New]archdiocese, a function of their paramount desire to protect the [New]church, even at the expense of innocent children, who were ravaged, molested, and abused." Bevilacqua and the Newarchdiocese have also been charged with negligence and recklessness.

Also charged with conspiracy and child endangerment was Monsignor William Lynn, Secretary for Clergy, the first United States Newchurch official charged with crimes for transferring paedophile presbyters to unsuspecting Newparishes, endangering yet more children.

Tens of Thousands Jump Ship in Benedict-Ratzinger's Diocese
As the Newchurch Dropout Rate Jumps in One Year by More than 50 per Cent

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

German Newchurchers are jumping the New Order barque of Newpeter at a rate of more than 50 per cent higher in the year 2010 alone. Newly-released official data from that year showed that some 181,000 Newchurchers quit their memberships, up from 124,000 in 2009. In the same year Novus Ordo baptisms reached a record low. The rejection by German Newchurchers of Benedict-Ratzinger and his New Order sect have led to increasing budget shortfalls for Newchurch in Germany.

The official records show that the Newchurch diocese that recorded the highest membership loss in 2010 was Munich and Freising, Benedict-Ratzinger's former Newdiocese, which has been hardest hit by Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, where 21,600 people alone left the Novus Ordo sect. Under Newbishop Ratzinger and his successors there, 250 presbyters have been implicated in raping children. In order to suppress the embarrassment of further cases, Newchurch has offered child victims a bribe of 7,000 U.S. dollars to keep silent.

Newchurch Desecrates Traditional Cardinal's Tomb
The Cardinal's Relatives Told Newchurch: Don't Dig up His Corpse to Pay for Your Sex Crimes!

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
O'Connell Mausoleum

Boston Cardinal William O'Connell Is Interred in His Mausoleum in 1944
Newchurch Has Now Dug Him up and Demolished His Marian Shrine
To Filtch 2,000,000 Dollars to Pay for Newchurch's Sex Crimes
Newchurch Certainly Has No Scruples and Will Even Desecrate Corpses for Sex

William O'Connell, Cardinal-Archbishop of Boston, Massachusetts, from 1906 to 1944, gave the Newchurch archdiocese a problem: or at least his corpse did. 22 of the Cardinal's relatives have called Newcardinal Sean O'Malley's desecration of the traditional Cardinal's tomb and its associated Marian chapel, as "irreparable damage to the mortal remains of the Cardinal." The relatives essentially called O'Malley a latter-day grave robber!

Newcardinal O'Malley was paid off with 2,000,000 dollars from Boston College for the desecration, in order that he could pay off for the Boston Newdiocese's notorious sex crimes by selling the property upon which the tomb and the Marian shrine stood. Boston College, which claims to a "Jesuit Catholic" college, demanded that the traditional Cardinal's corpse be disinterred and the Marian shrine destroyed as a condition of the sale.

In 1928, Cardinal O'Connell ordered the construction of the shrine, actually a small chapel, dedicated to Mary, on the site, and publicly said that "in that crypt is the place my body after death shall repose until the Judgment Day." In 1943, in his will, O’Connell reiterated his desire to be buried under the Marian chapel, and the next year, when he died at 84, his remains were encased in the bronze casket and lowered into a cement vault beneath the Marian chapel's marble floor. The traditional Cardinal is one of the most influential figures in the history of the church in Boston. He died in 1944.

In its latest cover-up, Newchurch, acting like the perverted organization that it is, secretly dug up the Cardinal's corpse on July 28, 2011, and demolished the Marian chapel -- against all Catholic respect for the repose of the Faithful Departed and against the explicit provisions of the Cardinal's own will. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Boston Globe.]

Good Catholics, Newchurch's corruption and predations against don't end even with death. Benedict-Ratzinger's Novus Ordo sect is entirely without Catholic scruples!

A Reader Asks: "Is This Praise of a Novus Ordo Presbyter
Just More Evidence that Fellay's Neo-SSPX Is Selling out to the New Ordo?"

From: Mervin

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

The Neo-SSPX has recently elevated a Novus Ordo presbyter, saying that he "is a far cry from the neo-modernist pastors and prelates who are still suffering from the traumatizing effects of the revolution of Vatican II. His insights into contemporary priestly [sic] formation are literally rejuvenating." I have read some of what this presbyter, so praised by the Neo-SSPX, has written and am thoroughly scandalized the Fellay's organization would praise a man who, among other things, refuses to condemn unconditionally "communion" in the hand! Is this praise of a Novus Ordo presbyter just more evidence that Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX is selling out to the New Order?

The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.

Yes, this is just more evidence the Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX is selling out to the New Order. The alphabet-compromised presbyter in question is a latter-day "blogger," who slithered out from the slimy Novus Ordo rocks only when Benedict-Ratzinger perpetrated his Great "Motu" Mess Hoax. The presbyter did not have the guts to stand up for the Catholic Faith until it appeared that he could get away with it with impunity.

These "gutless wonders" are totally beholden to the Newchurch of the New Order. They won't do anything that it doesn't "approve" of, because they are afraid of taking the consequences of standing up for the Catholic Faith against Newchurch. They are a far cry from the 12,000,000 Holy Martyrs who stood up against the Caesars and were brutally tortured and murdered for the Faith. These Motarian presbyters will always take whatever crumb the Novus Ordo sect throws them, but will never stand up for Our Lord Jesus Christ and His Catholic Faith. They are a far cry from the courage it took Fr. Gommar DePauw, to found the Catholic Traditionalist Movement against the "authorities" of the nascent Newchurch of the New Order -- in 1964!

Fellay and his Neo-SSPX officialdom are symptomatic of the pusillanimity that Christ condemned in the Scripture. They are willing to "compromise" with or to "negotiate" with the unCatholic New Order sect, which denies the Catholic Mass and Sacraments, Catholic doctrine, and Catholic morality. The fact that in the last couple of years the New Order sect, on a few rare occasions, will attempt to conceal its Modernist heresy under the cover of a few words of Latin changes nothing.

Traditional Catholics can take their cue from the example of the great Saints of the Catholic Faith. St. Athanasius told his congregations to worship in the open air, "amid the most profuse rains and snow-storms and winds and frosts of winter; and again in summer under a scorching sun" rather than to have any part with the churches of the Arian heretics, which St. Jerome tells us included most of the bishops and possibly several popes. St. Martin of Tours told the heretic bishops, who had essentially taken over the Catholic Church, to stay out of his diocese, or he would throw them out!

Good Catholics, Bernie Fellay and his Neo-SSPX officialdom do not choose to align themselves with the Catholic Saints, but to unCatholic and perverted Newchurch bishops and popes, who don't have enough Catholic morality to keep their cassocks zipped up! Fellay himself has not even once lifted his voice against the immorality and perversion most foul that have become the hallmark of the New Order under the leadership of Benedict-Ratzinger. Doesn't that tell you all you need to know about Fellay's morality, or rather lack thereof? Fellay dares to call himself a bishop, and yet he signally fails in a true Catholic bishop's duty to correct his fellow bishops, even the bishop of Rome, when they publicly fall from the Catholic Faith. It is clear where Fellay's loyalties lie -- with his bosom-buddy, the Paedophile Pope, Josef Ratzinger.
