Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Is the Neo-SSPX's Bernie Fellay teaching the same Novus Ordo "doctrine of false obedience" that Benedict-Ratzinger has used to suborn and cover up his Newchurch's paedophilia? Fellay's servile clergy demands in his name from the pulpit that NSSPXers shut up and obey their "superiors." The message that we got thrown in our faces last Sunday at our (now former) NSSPX chapel was: "If your superiors tell you black is white, then you must believe it." Didn't these NSSPX "superiors" appoint themselves, whereas Archbishop Lefebvre was appointed by Pope Pius XII?
So, it seems that our Superior-Dictator Fellay thinks that it is okay for him to criticize the Novus Ordo Mess and the Conciliar sect, but it is not okay for us members to criticize him by the same standard. Fellay thinks that it is okay to question the actions of Novus Ordo bishops and presbyters, but not to hold those of the Neo-SSPX to the same standard. What a hypocrite! Fellay makes Ratzinger look like a piker in the hypocrisy department. After all, Ratzinger merely threatened his people with excommunication if they reported to the police the rape of children by his Newclergy.
This is evil! We are leaving this NSSPX chapel and joining with the Fathers of the Resistance in the SSPX of the Strict Observance, or, better yet, we are going to seek out an independent traditional Catholic chapel.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Yes, this is evil. We used to think that Fellay was just a bungling incompetent, but it has become clear now that he is malicious. He is burning with malice against his own organization: his own bishops, his own priest-presbyters, his own laypeople. It is an horrific thing to watch him immolate himself before our eyes. Now he is teaching an unCatholic theology. His acceptance of the Novus Ordo "doctrine of false obedience" is so unCatholic that one has to wonder whether Fellay got any Catholic instruction at all away from his bookkeeper's eyeshades! St. Thomas Aquinas would laugh in his face.
Fellay is now running scared. That is why he has become more and more dictatorial and outrageous as time goes on. The problem with dictators is that people eventually get tired of their dictatorship and throw them out. Fellay has indeed gone too far. Now his own bishops, priest-presbyters, and laypeople are beginning to leave him and setting up an SSPX of the Strict Observance, following Archbishop Lefebvre's traditional Catholic principles. And Fellay is seething in a irate dementia. Sic semper tyrannis!
Good Catholics, the time is now to get out of Fellay's corrupt organization and to contact the SSPX of the Strict Observance for entry, even if only spiritually for now.

Another one of those crazy rumors is going around again, hypothesizing that Benedict-Ratzinger will offer, in what would be the first time in his Newpapacy, the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini's Half Novus Ordo Vatican II Mess of 1962+. Ratzinger's press secretary specifically denied the rumor during the week of September 23, 2012: "As every year, the pope celebrates Mass in St. Peter's on November 3rd for deceased cardinals and bishops, and it will be done in the Ordinary Form, as always." The "Ordinary Form" is Ratzinger's newfangled term for the Novus Ordo Mess of 1969, which is definitely invalid, because of form, matter, and/or intention. Newcardinal Raymond "Bully" Burke also disclaimed any knowledge of a papal "Extraordinary Mess."
It seems that the rumor was started by a New Order sect group called Coetus Internationalis Pro Summorum Pontificum, which is sponsoring a "Latin Mess" (an ambiguous term that includes the Latin form of the Novus Ordo Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service) on that date in St. Peter's Basilica. The 2007 Motu Proprio Summorum pontificum, allowing a restricted use of the Half Novus Ordo Mess of 1962+, sometimes erroneously called the "Extraordinary Form," is seen not as emanating from any traditional belief on the part of Ratzinger, but simply as a Great "Motu" Mess Hoax to entice Fellay and his Neo-SSPX into the New Order sect. As it happens, the Neo-SSPX under Fellay accepts completely the defective Half Novus Ordo "Mess of 1962+," whereas Archbishop Lefebvre viewed it with doubt, required traditionalizing changes to it, and was apparently planning to re-establish the Traditional Latin Mass in the SSPX before he died in 1991. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
In any case, Benedict-Ratznger has no power to celebrate a Pontifical High Mass even according to Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini's Half Novus Ordo Mess of 1962+, because Ratzinger has only been ordained. He was never consecrated as a bishop (pontiff), but merely "installed" as a Newbishop in Bugnini's invalid Protestantized New Ordinal of 1969. Ratzinger cannot validly offer even as much as a Low Mess of 1962+ because he is an avowed Modernist and proponent of an unCatholic New Order, a belief explicitly condemned as heretical by popes since Pius IX as "the combination of all heresies." Therefore, anything that Ratzinger performs has to be presumed invalid because of defect of intention.
On September 23, 2012, the Seventeenth Sunday after Pentecost, in the eighteenth year of its apostolate on the internet, the TRADITIO Network logged its 17,000,000th 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 Amazon.com was!
We thank the Lord for our over 17,000,000 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, including 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 Newchurchers of the New Order, including Motarians, who say that they have been converted to the traditional Roman Catholic Faith because of TRADITIO's uncompromising, independent commentaries and materials. The TRADITIO Network is one of many means through which Our Lord appears be working out the Traditional Catholic Restoration of the 21st century.
On September 21, 2012, the announcement came forth like the trumpet of the Apocalypse: a new Society of St. Pius X of the Strict Observance was founded on August 10, 2012, by the Vienna (Virginia) Declaration. The founding members are five leading priests of the SSPX. 25 more SSPX "resistance priests" have been identified so far and are expected to form the core of the SSPX-SO.
Described in the words of the Declaration as a "united core of priests faithful to the position always maintained by Archbishop Lefebvre," Frs. Joseph Pfeiffer, Ronald Ringrose, Richard Voigt, David Hewko, and Francois Chazal, coming from various areas around the world, signed the founding documents. Joining the priests in the SSPX-Strict Observance are a number of SSPX religious and laity, to name just a few: Mother Ann-Marie Simoulin, Dom Thomas Aquinas (Benedictines of Brazil), and Dr. David White, who has previously given classes at the SSPX seminary in Winona, Minnesota.
The five founding fathers have elected Fr. Joseph Pfeiffer as their leader for a term of two years (compared to Fellay's dictatorial 24 years). The fathers have refused to give up the name "Society of St. Pius X" because "we did not change the message; the official line of the [Neo-]SSPX has changed." Although the founding fathers note that Fellay has not yet signed any "sellout deal" with Newrome, they publicly "withdraw the exercise of obedience to him for motives of Faith until this crisis is over," in order for the priests to maintain obedience to God in their sworn Anti-Modernist Oath. Ironically, this was the same Anti-Modernist Oath to God that Fellay himself swore when he entered Major Orders with Archbishop Lefebvre.
The Society of St. Pius X of the Strict Observance has set up its headquarters at Our Lady of Mount Carmel in the United States, with permanent resident priests and a bank account to receive financial support. The SSPX-SO plans to start a traditional Catholic school at the headquarters and organs of communication. WARNING: It remains to be seen just how scrupulously the SSPX-SO stays away from the New Order sect and Fellay's New Order-leaning sect. If traditional Catholics have learned anything these last fifty years, it is that, in our particular age, organizations are the problem, not the solution. For further information, click on the TRADITIO Network's Official Traditional Catholic Directory department, and locate the contact information in the chapter, "Traditional Catholic Organizations."
In addition to the 25 other priests whom Fellay has expelled or threatened to expel from his Neo-SSPX, the SSPX of the Strict Observance has announced that it will welcome "all the priests that Fellay sends them" -- sardonically referring to the nearly three dozen priests whom Fellay has expelled, with more to be expelled, from his Neo-SSPX. Frankly, it is wonderful to see that the SSPX-SO has a sense of humor, as Our Lord had so often in Sacred Scripture, instead of the dictatorial, autocratic, humorless Fellay, who is more reminiscent of the corrupt leader of the Jewish Temple, Caiphas, who persecuted the Lord and took a cut of the Temple treasury, or more reminiscent of Judas, who stole from the apostles' purse and betrayed the Lord.
The founding fathers indicate that anti-Fellay groups have appeared from everywhere, calling for help from the SSPX-SO and offering help to the new organization. The fathers say that it is not easy to cast them out of places that do not belong to Fellay and that they now understand Fellay's adamant machinations to take legal possession of more and more properties away from the local NSSPX groups. It may well be that Fellay brought in the Jewish fund-raiser and Dresden lawyer Maximilian Krah to give him legal advice on how to do this. The founding fathers are prudent enough to expect that the autocratic Fellay will unleash lawyers against them at some stage, but they say that they are prepared for this.
In a Declaration dated August 10, 2012, the founding fathers of the SSPX-SO stated that the Neo-SSPX crisis remains as long as its head, Bernie Fellay, teaches errors and allows errors to spread, thus dividing the flock. Fellay is "excusing" the Modernist Vatican II Council instead of rejecting it. This Council's chief advocate remains Benedict-Ratzinger, who, the fathers state, is praising Vatican II continually, insisting that Mohammedans stay Mohammedans, preparing to Novus Ordo-beatify the successor of Josemaria Escriva (the Opus Dei cult leader), continuing to support the Focolari and other Modernist movements, et al.
The unCatholic teachings of the Modernist Vatican II Council are still raging in the person of one of its leaders, "Fr." Ratzinger. Even if the "sellout deal" is off for the moment, Fellay remains committed to it. The fathers conclude by reminding Fellay's Neo-SSPX of Archbishop Lefebvre's direct words: "Had I signed [the sellout] agreement, we would have been finished in one year."
It is looking more and more as though it had been Ratzinger's plan all along to "dupe" Fellay and the Neo-SSPX into leading the pseudo-traditionalists like lemmings over the Novus Ordo cliff. A little while after the Neo-SSPX's Extraordinary Chapter Meeting in July 2012, Fellay admitted before a large group at the NSSPX seminary at Econe, Switzerland, that Ratzinger had "duped" him.
It is clear that Ratzinger does not like the Traditional Latin Mass. He overtly stated that he was going to use it as a springboard to make the "Latin Mass" more like the Novus Ordo Mess. Already for Motarians he will replace, effective December 2, 2012, the so-called "Mess of 1962," in favor an Almost Novus Ordo "Motu Mess of 2012." Following the practice of the Freemason architect of the Novus Ordo, Hannibal Bugnini, Ratzinger may make some changes optional at first, only to be made mandatory soon thereafter. Undoubtedly, if he lives that long, Ratzinger will issue an even more Modernized Mess of 2017.
But Ratzinger is still afraid that if he Novus Ordoizes his "Motu" Mess too quickly, the Motarians may trickle away from their Newparishes and go to independent traditional Catholic chapels and churches, or to the Neo-SSPX. A Novus Ordoized Neo-SSPX "reconciled" with the New Order sect is intended to be the vehicle of deceit that will lead the pseudo-traditionalists into yet another phony Mess, the way that Bugnini did between 1956 and 1969.
Good Catholics, we TRADITIO Fathers are often asked how the Catholics of the 1960s could have fallen for the ruse of Bugnini's invalid and unCatholic Novus Ordo Mess of 1969. In the present day you have your answer. Armed with the knowledge of what happened in the 1960s, the pseudo-traditionalists and Motarians are once again blind to the wickedness and snares of the unCatholic New Order sect, whose morality is a pig stye, whose doctrine is Protestant, if not Jewish, and whose "liturgy" is an unCatholic ratatouille.
It's like the deadly Swine Flu spreading around the world. Benedict-Ratzinger's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, having devastated his New Order sect in Ireland, the United States, Britain, Holland, Italy, and many other countries, has now spread to yet another continent: Australia. On September 22, 2012, the Newchurch archbishop of Melbourne, Australia, Denis Hart, looking dazed, admitted to the press that after the Modernist Council Vatican II, 10,000 children in the state of Victoria alone have been sodomized by presbyters during the 1970s and 1980s. The investigation continues for the 1990s and 2000s. At least 40 of the child victims have killed themselves as a result.
Hart admitted that Newchurch's crime spree has an "horrific extent and the horrific consequences." The Australian parliament, shocked by the revelation, has ordered an official parliamentary inquiry and is considering the designation of a Royal Commission to ferret out the paedophiles in Benedict-Ratzinger's sect in Australia. Newarchbishop Hart admitted that the Church was "ashamed" at its cover-up of a veritable plague of crimes by Newchurch presbyters against children. One source reported that even now Newchurch would not have come clean, had it not been for the threat of a parliamentary inquiry to expose the rottenness of Ratzinger's Newclergy.
Once again, the corrupt hand of Benedict-Ratzinger is found upon the cases. With his worldwide Newvatican intelligence sources, it is hard to believe that when he took a P.R. junket to Australia in 2008, he didn't know the "dirty secret" that would become public just three or four years later. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by BBC News.]
Good Catholics, any notion that Benedict-Ratzinger's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust is over is demented. Like the fourteenth-century plague that killed one-third to one-half of the Catholics of Europe, Ratzinger is killing many more than that number with his Modernist Holocaust and his fraudulent New Order, which poses as Catholic, but is anything but. The government of Ireland has kicked him and his representative out of the Emerald Isle. Now, he may be expelled from an entire continent "down under."
"The power to tax is the power to destroy," as John Marshall's legal axiom has it. And Newchurch's German bishops are turning that power against their (former) Newchurchers. Some 200,000 Newchurchers have been leaving Newchurch each year, primarily because they reject the regime of Benedict-Ratzinger, one of their own Germans, who has supported the Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust by his Newclergy against children.
This mass exodus from Newchurch isn't just a matter of conscience; it's a matter of money. Those who leave no longer pay the "church tax," or tithe of 8-9 per cent, which Catholics, Protestants, and Jews in Germany and several other countries in Europe pay. Benedict-Ratzinger is being forced to take off his white cassock and put on sackcloth and ashes. His paedophiliac New Order sect is losing, in Germany alone, a significant part of the 6,500,000,000 dollars that it rakes in from its clueless Newchurchers each year.
On September 20, 2012, the "charitable" German bishops have now decreed that Newchurchers who opt out of the church tax should not be given Novus Ordo "sacraments" and "religious burials." The joke is on Newchurch, though. It doesn't have sacraments any more! In 1969, it rejected the immemorial Traditional Latin Mass of the Church and substituted an invalid Novus Ordo service. Newchurch also in 1969 modified to invalidity the former Sacraments of Penance (changed to "Reconciliation"), Holy Orders (changed to an installation rite for Protestantized "presbyters"), Confirmation (changed to a Novus Ordo fraternity rite), and Extreme Unction (changed to a mere "blessing of the sick"). Moreover, just recently Newchurch's British wing announced "presbyterless" funerals, "presided over" by ministers, ministresses, and laypeople.
Those who work in the New Order sect or its institutions, such as charity groups and choirs, will lose their jobs. Benedict-Ratzinger reviewed the Newbishops' decree before it was issued and approved it. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
Bernie Fellay's District Director for Germany, who is known to be one of Fellay's closest confidants, made some startling admissions in a September 18, 2012, "canned" interview, that is, one scripted entirely within the Neo-SSPX. These notorious "canned" interviews may as well be straight NSSPX press releases, for all the spontaneity that they (don't) have.
Since the Modernistic Vatican II Council, there are certain instigators for getting traditional Catholics to sell out to the New Order sect, who keep claiming that the Newpopes JPII-Wojtyla and Benedict-Ratzinger have been favorable to such a sellout, but that their subordinates, the Newcardinals who run the curia, are not so favorable. This contention is just as false now as it has always been. The Newpopes are pulling all the strings now and always have been. Schmidberger let the cat out of the bag when he admitted in the interview that Fellay directly asked Ratzinger in a letter whether it is Ratzinger's own decree, or just the wish of his subordinates, that the Neo-SSPX is required to accept Vatican II's Modernist and heretical "doctrines" and is required to accept the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Novus Ordo "Mess of 1969" as the valid and "Ordinary Mass" of the Church.
These were the "new requests" explicitly demanded by Newvatican on June 13, 2012. Ratzinger unequivocally acknowledged to Fellay that the demands to accept the heresies of Vatican II and its invalid Mess are coming directly from Ratzinger himself, not solely from his subordinates. Ratzinger was a leader of the Modernists at Vatican II and remains, as ever, the Modernist "Fr." Ratzinger, even in the deceptive white cassock of the Newpope.
In another highly-charged revelation, Schmidberger admitted in the interview that the question of Fellay and his Neo-SSPX being "re-excommunicated" is on the table. Although Schmidberger personally thinks that a new wave of excommunications is "unlikely," he didn't rule it out. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the German Kreuz News Service.]
Good Catholics, Fellay and his Neo-SSPX cronies continue in their demented state. They are still attracted by the brilliance of the Devil, forgetting the Catholic teaching that the only way to avoid the malice and snares of the Devil is to cut oneself off totally. It is inevitable that Fellay, Schmidberger, and their Neo-SSPX will all eventually be drawn down to perdition because they did not resist totally.
From his place of exile in Manila, Fr. Joseph Pfieffer has issued a scathing denunciation of the Neo-SSPX's Dictator-Superior, Bernie Fellay, in an Open Letter to the NSSPXers. He confirms that under Fellay's regime, the Modernist Vatican II Conciliar corruption is increasing like an infection within the NSSPX. Fr. Pfeiffer states that the problem with Fellay's Neo-SSPX is twofold, such that the organization is now very different from what it has been before the last twelve years:
Fr. Pfeiffer compares Fellay to a man who frequented a brothel, but couldn't complete the act. Why can Fellay say, "We haven't signed the deal?" Merely because the prostitutes at Newrome wouldn't accept his money!
Fr. Pfeiffer reports that in France, Fellay's priest-presbyters are using the "Unblessed" JPII-Wojtyla's phony "Luminous Mysteries" in their rosaries. He reports also that they are "co-officiating" at "mixed marriages" with Novus Ordo presbyters. Fellay, who once condemned the internet, is now hypocritically using his own NSSPX web sites to promote the "good things" coming out of Modernist Rome and claiming that the Modernist Vatican II Council is without any "real error and heresy."
Fr. Pfeiffer has now joined some fifty of Fellay's current and former NSSPX priests to speak out to those NSSPXers who still remain clueless about the death of the Catholic Faith that would result from a false merger with Benedict-Ratzinger's unCatholic New Order sect. These are the current and former NSSPX priests who may be called upon by the NSSPX's senior bishop, Richard Williamson, now under threat of expulsion by Fellay, to form the core of a new Society of Pius XI (SPXI).
Fr. Pfeiffer confirms that for his adherence to the traditional Catholic principles of the SSPX's founder, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, Fellay attempted on September 9, 2012, through his lieutenant-stooge, Daniel Couture, to stop him celebrating Mass for traditional Catholics. Fellay has ordered that none of his priest-presbyters utter a word to Fr. Pfeiffer and his associate, Fr. Francois Chazal, and has even attempted to prohibit them food, but the NSSPXers violate Fellay's edict and bring food anyway to the two priests in their place of exile. Nevertheless, the two priests are determined not to give in to Fellay's cruel intimidations.
I have always been perplexed why Bernie Fellay, the Superior General of the Neo-SSPX, has, as far as I can tell, never issued one word of condemnation against Benedict-Ratzinger and his henchmen for their active cover-up of sodomy and paedophilia amongst Newchurch clergy. You can be sure that Archbishop Lefebvre would have been the first to condemn such corruption, following the example of Pope St. Pius V, who refused to consider such criminals as real priests, whether they were "ordained" or not, and turned them over to the secular government for severe penalties.
Then it occurred to me that maybe Fellay does not condemn the practices because they may be rampant in his own organization, just as they are in the New Order sect that he hankers to join. If this is true, it would be just more evidence his Neo-SSPX is already part of the Novus Ordo sect in mindset and practice. I think that expelled NSSPX Prior Basilio Meramo knows a lot more than he is saying in his condemnations of Fellay's regime.
The official position of Fellay on the paedophile presbyters in Newchurch is that the problem is "exaggerated." Even the "Paedophile Pope" Benedict-Ratzinger says that the problem must be reduced to an "acceptable level," not rooted out entirely -- as crazy as that sounds. Fellay's henchman, Franz Schmidtberger, goes around Germany giving public talks and speaking to the media, defending the "Paedophile Pope" and claiming that the problem is grossly exaggerated. Just tell that to the 100,000 children sodomized by Newchurch presbyters, including the hundreds of handicapped children in Newchurch orphanages in Ireland, the United States, and elsewhere. Just tell that to the government of Ireland, which is so irate against Ratzinger personally that it has expelled his ambassador from Ireland, closed down its own embassy at Newvatican, and prohibited him from entering Ireland for the eucharistic congress.
Like so many others, I was thrown off an NSSPX web site for suggesting that on these "camping trips with NSSPX priests," a parent should be engaged to act as co-supervisor (not to make the sandwiches, but to act in a supervisory capacity with the NSSPX priest-presbyter). I said that doing so would solve two potential problems: it would preserve the NSSPX priest-presbyter from any spurious accusations (and any well-intentioned NSSPX priest-presbyter should be happy with this suggestion) and would act to protect the children from any paedophile priest-presbyters that Fellay may be harboring. The NSSPX web site resented this idea and threw me off the site, saying that there is no NSSPX priest-repsbyter who is a paedophile!
Such a clueless attitude is exactly the same as Newchurch's, whose persistent denial of rampant paedophilia amongst its clergy has lead to a statistical increase, not a decrease as is falsely thought, of paedophiliac crimes in Newchurch under the leadership of Benedict-Ratzinger and his hench-bishops.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Your suggestion for using parents as co-supervisors on NSSPX camping trips is so reasonable and prudent, we cannot conceive why it would be rejected out of hand, and you would be expelled from the discussion. It certainly lends all that much more weight to your hypothesis that something is rotten in the kingdom of Fellay's NSSPX!
Any notion that Newchurch presbyters are working mostly out of charity, for a pittance, is just one of those other false notions with which the New Order likes to deceive its New Order sectarians. In the United States, for example, according to the United States' National Federation of Priests [Sic] Councils, a typical salary alone for a New Order presbyter is $55,000, 17% higher than the national average of $47,000. New Order presbyters make more money than most of their congregants. And that figure is in addition to a package of benefits that may include a car allowance, room and board in a parish rectory, health insurance, and a retirement plan. Diocesan priests who do special work such as teaching usually receive an additional salary for "contributed service."
It seems that the New Order sect is good for the soul, not the spiritual soul of its sectarians, who are deprived of a valid Mass and Sacraments, true doctrine, and Catholic morality, but for the material "soul" of its presbyters, a significant percentage of whom are paedophiles, harbored and covered up by Benedict-Ratzinger and his equally corrupt Newbishops.
Now we have further evidence of how much these "poor" presbyters are pampered. The Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Newarchdiocese, which has been exposed by two Grand Jury reports over a decade as still continuing to harbor scores of paedophiles, on September 19, 2012, has been forced to auction off Villa St. Joseph by the Sea, its Presbyters' Pleasure Palace & Oceanfront Spa on the upscale Jersey shore, for 4,125,000 dollars, in order to pay off for their sex crimes. There is still 2,000,000 dollars more to go. Nothing is too good for these Newchurch paedophile presbyters. This palace was purchased at the beginning of the Modernist Vatican II Council in 1963 to house "retired and vacationing" presbyters.
Just the day before, September 18, 2012, nine more children had entered court cases, charging that while they were attending Newchurch schools or churches in Philadelphia, they had been raped by Newchurch presbyters and also naming Newarchbishops Charlie Chaput and Justin Regali as accomplices in a cover-up of the crimes. The new cases blow to smithereens any notion that Benedict-Ratzinger's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust is abating. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
Good Catholics, what a racket Benedict-Ratzinger is running out of the pockets of his clueless Newchurchers! But what does he care? He's got his own Papal Summer Castle at Gandolfo, to which he invites excommunicated heretics like Hans Kung to teach Ratzinger's former German graduate students, who get free room and board at the castle while them imbibe heretical teachings.
The NSSPX's Dictator-Superior Bernie Fellay made a big deal about having sent a letter to Benedict-Ratzinger with "three conditions" after the NSSPX's Extraordinary Chapter Meeting in July 2012. Well, if he did, Ratzinger claims that he never received it. Nor is he in any hurry to receive it!
You see, Fellay's Neo-SSPX is now a hot potato. Because of the public dissension within the NSSPX about the sellout to Newrome, which took a long time to get started, but once started has now taken on a vengeance against Fellay, Benedict-Ratzinger would just as soon that Fellay go back into his Menzingen bunker. The critical time for a sellout has passed. Newrome has now publicly stated that it will not discuss doctrinal differences. Fellay has to accept the Modernist "doctrines" of the Vatican II Council. This is not now negotiable -- and never has been. Yet Fellay was too ignorant to see the ruse and has now publicly admitted that he was "duped" by Ratzinger and his lieutenants.
One of the Modernist doctrines required unconditionally by Ratzinger is Fellay's acceptance of the 2007 Motu Proprio Summorum pontificum. That should not have been an obstacle, because Fellay had already sold out publicly to its Half Novus Ordo Vatican II "Mess of 1962+," fabricated by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, sometimes erroneously termed the "Extraordinary Mess." But there is a kicker: the Motu also requires acceptance of the Full Novus Ordo invalid Mess of 1969, fabricated by the same Freemason presbyter and termed by Ratzinger the "Ordinary Form" for his entire Newchurch of the New Order. Moreover, Ratzinger has now announced that a "revised" 1962 Missal is on Newvatican's presses, which will abrogate the "Mess of 1962" in favor of a Almost Novus Ordo "Motu Mess of 2012," to become mandatory for the Motarians on December 2, 2012.
Ratzinger & Co. is now well aware of how delicate the situation within the NSSPX is. Ratzinger now knows that all three of its bishops are opposed to Fellay's sellout programme. Ratzinger now knows that there is a substantial group within the NSSPX laity, even a majority, who are opposed to Fellay's sellout programme. Ratzinger now knows that there is a significant group of NSSPX priests who are opposed to Fellay's sellout programme. Ratzinger now knows that there is strong dissension particularly within Latin America, where the NSSPX's senior bishop, Richard Williamson, has taken an "unauthorized" trip to shore up pro-Lefebvre/anti-Fellay sentiment.
On June 13, 2012, Ratzinger told Fellay that if he were to accept the Modernist "doctrines" of Vatican II, he would likely get a "personal prelature" for the Neo-SSPX, the lowest form of recognition by the New Order. But in July 2012, everything changed. Fellay had to stand before the Extraordinary Chapter Meeting and answer to his District Superiors and senior clergy. From internal reports received by the TRADITIO Network, the meeting was not a happy one for Fellay. Repeatedly during the week, as the reports indicate, he was called on the carpet. and his sellout programme was castigated as being contrary to the founding principles upon which Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre founded the Society.

Good Catholics, if Fellay and Ratzinger had taken to heart the warnings that the TRADITIO Network has been issuing for over a decade, they would not have wasted the last seven years in an exercise in futility. Once again the TRADITIO Network has been right on target with its predictions. After all, experience is the best teacher, and we have been around from since before Vatican II to observe how the Newchurch of the New Order "practices to deceive."
Since 1969 the Novus Ordo Newchurchers have been bereft of the countless graces of a valid Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, when the Freemason Hannibal Bugnini's Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Novus Ordo service replaced the valid Traditional Latin Mass. Is it any wonder that Newchurch and its Newpopes since then (Paul VI-Montini, JPII-Wojtyla, and Benedict-Ratzinger) have succumbed to some of the worst perversions of worship, doctrine, and morality in the history of the Church? 1969 was also the year in which the Freemason Hannibal Bugnini's Protestantized New Ordinal went into effect, from which time Newchurch no longer ordained valid priests to offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, but merely "installed" presbyters "to preside over the assembly." Truly, God has abandoned the Newchurch of the New Order because it has abandoned Him and the Catholic Faith.
Now Newchurch in Liverpool, England, has announced that it is now going the way of the third-world countries in refusing to give dead Newchurchers even a funeral by an invalid presbyter. Newchurchers will henceforth be buried -- or more likely burned to a crisp -- by Protestantized lay ministers or ministresses. Novus Ordo presbyters, you see, are "too pressured" to simulate funeral Messes, so Newarchbishop Patrick Kelly has decreed that henceforth 22 lay ministers will replace them.
The Newdiocese Liverpool anticipates a 42 per cent drop in the number of presbyters in just the next three years. Protestantized lay ministers and ministresses already "preside" at funerals in third-world countries. Now the practice will spread to Europe. Newarchbishop Kelly let the cat out of the bag by admitting that Newchurchers would see these funerals as "second class." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Catholic Herald.
Good Catholics, calling such fraudulent services "second class" is hugely overstating the case. These services have no class at all. No valid Mass, no valid priest, and probably a Protestantized ministress as well!
Traditional Catholics should know how they must properly plan for eternity, so that they do not burn in the fires of Purgatory until the end of the world (if they are not immediately damned to a permanent Hell or blessed in an immediate Heaven as a Saint), without the powerful prayers of the Church at a valid Traditional Latin Missa Cantata. (Yes, even a Low Mass is not sufficient; the Church traditionally requires, whenever possible, a High Mass to send a Catholic into eternity.)

Benedict-Ratzinger's New Order is tanking rapidly, according to Newvatican's own latest statistical data, for 2010. It is well known that, in order to gain itself more secular political clout in the world, the total number of Newchurchers given is grossly inflated. So the figure of a little over a billion Newchurch members is to be taken with cum multis granis salis.
What is much more revealing is that Newvatican admits that more and more of this number refuse to set foot in a New Order temple. Newchurch parents treat Baptism as a mere secular occasion, just as many Newchurchers celebrate Christmas without ever attending Christ's Mass. In Europe, in just the last twenty years, First Communions and Confirmations tumbled by 18 per cent. In Ireland, hit hard by Benedict-Ratzinger's continuing Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, in just seven years the number Newchurchers has plummeted from 69 to 47 per cent. It is as if the invalidity of the invalid Novus Ordo "sacraments" is known in the souls of Newchurchers, even though they may be hesitant to state the truth of the matter on their lips.
The Director of the Central Office of Church Statistics at Newvatican, Enrico Nenna, openly admitted that "the latest recorded data reveal a distinct weakening in Catholic [i.e., Newchurch] practice worldwide."

One of the leaders of the SSPX whom Bishop Richard Williamson may call upon to help him form a new Society not associated with Bernie Fellay's sellout NSSPX is the distinguished former Prior Basilio Meramo. An Open Letter written by the Prior on August 22, 2012, from his place of exile in Bogota, Colombia, has recently been published to the world. Meramo had been expelled by Superior-Dictator Bernie Fellay for publicly adhering to the traditional Catholic principles upon which Archbishop Lefebvre founded the Society of St. Pius X.
Prior Meramo exposes Fellay for his deceit in trying to lead the NSSPX by "successive, carefully measured steps" into joining the unCatholic New Order sect, in the same manner in which the Catholics of 1962 were gradually led into the New Order, so that by 1969 they woke up to discover that they no longer had a valid Mass or a Catholic Church. The Prior reminds the world that in 1988 all of the SSPX bishops stood together with Archbishop Lefebvre in declaring unequivocally:
We never wish to belong to that system that calls itself the Conciliar Church and defines itself according to the Novus Ordo Missae, indifferent oecumenism and the laicization of society. We take no part, nullam partem habemus, in the pantheon of religions at [the oecumenical conference of] Assisi; our own excommunication ... would be nothing more than the irrefutable proof thereof.... We ask for nothing better than to be declared excommunicated from the adulterous spirit that now spreads through the Church of the past twenty centuries, excluded from impious communion with the unfaithful.
Prior Meramo also reminds the world that in 1988 the Archbishop and the SSPX bishops valiantly asked to be excommunicated. To the contrary, in 2009 the bishops tolerated the reversal of the very excommunications that they had previously viewed as a badge of honor, a "seal of their own orthodoxy," clear proof that they were in no way associated with the heretical New Order sect. On January 31, 2009, Fellay himself did a complete volte-face from traditional Catholicism in his full-throated acceptance of the "Paedophile Pope"'s bogus "unexcommunications" from the illegitimate New Order sect. In doing so, Prior Meramo declares, Bernie Fellay showed himself "feminised, weak, and timid, [displaying] aberrant, denigrating buffoonery."
Good Catholics, these are the strongest of public words against the "Least Reverend" Fellay, reminiscent of St. Paul's scorching criticism of St. Peter, when the latter started teaching a false doctrine, which he, together with the other Apostles, had previously condemned (Galatians 2:11). In the face of the obvious truth, St. Peter had no choice but to back down from his false teaching and humble himself before the Apostles. But Fellay is no St. Peter! He is much too prideful and egotistical to follow the first pope's Catholic example when caught in error.
A new pope will be elected on December 2, 2012 to replace Pope Shenouda III of Alexandria, who led the Coptic Eastern Orthodox Church for four decades and died on the Feast of St. Patrick, March 17, 2012. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
Many Catholics are unaware that Benedict-Ratzinger is not the only pope in the world. Traditionally, the head of the Coptic Orthodox Church in Egypt, the most ancient of the Orthodox Churches, is also called "pope." The English word comes from the Latin papa, a familiar term for a father, corresponding to the Semitic abba, which is found in St. Paul's Epistle to the Romans (8:15/DRV) and two other verses. The word Coptic is a corruption of Egyptiacos, the Greek word for "Egyptian." The Coptic language, like Latin now a Sacred Language, is still used in the Orthodox Church. It is the direct descendant of the ancient Egyptian of Pharaonic times and was instrumental in helping Francois Champollion decipher the ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics.
In the election of the new pope, 2,405 voters are eligible to cast ballots on November 24, 2012, to narrow down to three candidates a list of up to seven candidates to be drawn up on October 4, 2012. Then, on December 2, 2012, the pope will be selected by the traditional method, whereby a young child picks one of the names from a box. The element of sortilege in the selection of the pope accords with Biblical tradition, as recorded in the first chapter of the Acts of the Apostles, the fifth book of the New Testament. When the Apostles met after the Resurrection to select a successor to Judas, Matthias was selected over Barsabas by lot.
The Neo-SSPX's senior bishop, Richard Williamson, visited Brazil in late August 2012 to administer the Sacrament of Confirmation to nearly 100 traditional Catholics who go to Masses of "friendly communities" of the NSSPX. These communities are not officially part of the Fellay's NSSPX structure.
Fellay had a fit, expressed through his District Superior for South America, Christian Bouchacourt, that Williamson "presumed" to conduct the routine functions of his episcopal office. Apparently, Williamson didn't ask for unneeded "permission" from the NSSPX's Superior-Dictator to do what a bishop is consecrated to do. Williamson's trip to confer the Sacrament of Confirmation was "organized independently." Fellay, known as the "Hitler of the Neo-SSPX," egocentric and prideful as he is, hates independence of any kind. Williamson, on the other hand, has a streak of generosity that has led him for many decades to serve not just the SSPX, but independent communities of traditional Catholics as well. God bless him!
It seems that the Brazilian "friendly community," the Monastery of the Holy Cross and its associated religious and laity, will join the number of French Benedictine communities, once the religious bedrock of Archbishop Lefebvre's SSPX, that have severed their ties with Fellay because of his petty autocracy and New Order mentality. In the Brazilian brouhaha Fellay was personally denounced by the traditional Catholics once friendly to the NSSPX as "agreeing with Modernism and ceasing to fight in defense of Catholic Tradition."
Williamson had already stood against Fellay's illegal attempt to silence him. Williamson instructed Fellay that as a consecrated bishop, he had the obligation to preach the Catholic Faith and therefore continued publishing his weekly bulletin, which sometimes challenged the unCatholic positions that Fellay had taken in his plans to sell out the Archbishop's Society to the New Order sect.
German sources reported on September 11, 2012, that Fellay will expel Bishop Williamson from his Neo-SSPX. If that is true, the question is why he didn't do it earlier, as Williamson has consistently stood against Fellay's sellout schemes and for Archbishop Lefebvre's traditional Catholic founding principles for the Society. The answer is simple. Williamson has an immense following within the NSSPX. His erudition, gentlemanly demeanor, and traditional Catholic stance, similar to that of Archbishop Lefebvre, stands in stark contract to Fellay's theological ignorance, nasty temper, and New Order mentality. Loyalty to Fellay can only be coerced through intimidation and false obedience; loyalty to Williamson comes from genuine respect. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the German news service Kreuz.]
Good Catholics, if Fellay expels Williamson now, it is possible that the Neo-SSPX will officially split, one part staying with Fellay and his committed determination, however well "spun" now in his campaign of damage control, to sell out the NSSPX to the Newchurch of the New Order and the "Paedophile Pope," Benedict-Ratzinger, and the other part going over to Bishop Williamson. Fellay's reputation is now at its lowest ebb. Many religious institutions, such as the Benedictine monasteries in France, have already split from Fellay. Some thirty District Superiors and NSSPX priests have already been exiled or expelled by Fellay.
These highly disaffected former leaders of the Neo-SSPX could form the core of a new Society, re-founded upon the original traditional Catholic principles of Archbishop Lefebvre -- call it the Society of Pius XI. Williamson has the power to ordain more priests and consecrate more bishops for a new Society, whereas Fellay has been using invalid New Order presbyters to fill out his Neo-SSPX ranks.
We never expected to hear it, but reports now coming into the TRADITIO Network from Econe, Switzerland, indicate that Bernie Fellay, the Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX, just told a meeting of some 100 seminary professors, seminarians, and priests from France that he was "utterly deceived" by Benedict-Ratzinger and his Newvatican. Sitting in the audience shocked was France's NSSPX District Superior, Regis de Cacqueray, who in just the past few days had tried to justify the sellout attempts that Fellay himself has now disowned. As soon as we receive further internal reports, we will keep our readers updated on this tantalizing story.
Inside reports to the TRADITIO Network indicate that Fellay objected to a number of the "conditions" voted in by the Chapter members before they would give any consideration to a sellout to Newrome. Now at this Econe meeting, Fellay is reported to have recanted entirely and accepted as "essential" all of the six "conditions," some of which he had formerly rejected:
In his purported "recantation," Fellay is now said to have told the Econe meeting that there will be no sellout to Newrome until Ratzinger and his Newvatican convert to the Catholic Faith. This was the position of SSPX Archbishop-Founder Marcel Lefebvre, which Fellay has publicly spurned since the year 2000.
More information is also leaking out now that, as the TRADITIO Network had previously reported, the July 2012 Extraordinary Chapter meeting was anything but the "unifying force" that Fellay immediately afterward contended that it was, but was rather seven days of acrimony, starting with a split vote on whether Fellay had the right to expel the NSSPX's senior bishop, Richard Williamson, from the Chapter meeting.
Good Catholics, it would be truly ironic if Fellay finally "got religion," the traditional Catholic religion, that is, but his malicious and double-dealing conduct over the last decade in trying to force the Neo-SSPX to sell out against its will to the unCatholic New Order must be viewed in the same light as that of the snake in the Garden of Eden that engineered man's fall from grace. Fellay has been merciless in attacking his own, like Bishop Williamson and some thirty District Superiors and NSSPX priests. Fellay's purported "conversion" is too little, too late. The NSSPX needs to expel this serpent once and for all from its midst.
Fr. Hector Bolduc was one of those early heroes of the Traditional Catholic Movement who suffered much in the early days of Newchurch and thereafter because he refused to have anything to do with the unCatholic New Order sect. He was ordained by Archbishop Lefebvre in 1974. By that time the Protestantized "establishment" Church had already defected to the New Order sect and viciously attacked Fr. Bolduc for offering the true Catholic Mass and Sacraments, which the New Order sect had abandoned. The New Order sect, then and now, hates those true priests who have the courage to stay away from it and denounce it as unCatholic, and even invalid.
Fr. Bolduc became the SSPX's U.S. Southwest District Superior in the 1970s. In 1983, he left the SSPX, became independent, and served traditional Catholic congregations in Wisconsin, Michigan, Maine, and New Hampshire. According to Fr. Bolduc's brother, the traditional Catholic priest was discovered dead in the rectory at Necdah, Wisconsin, on September 10, 2012, when he did not show up to celebrate Mass. He had been ill for some time.
All too many pseudo-traditionalists of the present day are willing to sell out to the same New Order sect that Fr. Bolduc and Archbishop Lefebvre so courageously resisted as unCatholic. Like the Archbishop's effete successor, Bernie Fellay, Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX, they swallow Benedict-Ratzinger's Great "Motu" Mess Hoax and keep putting money into the Newchurch collection plate to pay off for the sexual crimes, most of them homosexual and paedophiliac, that, to this day, Newchurch leaders, including Benedict-Ratzinger, still support.
Good Catholics, you should realize that you owe a deep debt of gratitude to the early heroes of the Traditional Catholic Movement, like Fr. Hector Bolduc, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, and Fr. Gommar DePauw, the Founder of the Catholic Traditionalist Movement. These heroes of our Traditional Catholic Movement refused to sell out to the phony and unCatholic Newchurch of the New Order and instead show up the pseudo-traditionalist "Extraordinary Mess" sellouts for the pusillanimous patsies that they are.
A number of pseudo-traditionalist "blogs" are finally catching up to what the TRADITIO Network already reported a month ago, that Benedict-Ratzinger has ordered the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II "Mess of 1962+" replaced by the his Almost-Novus Ordo "Motu Mess of 2012" as of December 2, 2012. On that date the Motarians will be tricked into a phony Mess, just as Paul-VI-Montini and his henchman, the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini did in 1969, with the replacement of the valid Traditional Latin Mass with the invalid the Novus Ordo service.
To be fair, Ratzinger warned the Motarians in his 2007 Motu Proprio Summorum pontificum that the "Mess of 1962+," sometimes falsely called the "Extraordinary Mess," a completely unCatholic term, would be only temporary, to be replaced by an Almost-Novus Ordo Mess. The clueless Motarians, who live in a self-delusional Fantasyland about Ratzinger and his New Order sect, did not listen, of course, because they preferred their fantasy Ratzinger rather his Modernist reality. But Ratzinger was as good as his word. Just five years after his Motu, the same period as between Vatican II's Sacrosanctum concilium of 2004 and the Novus Ordo Mess of 1969, he has ordered the "Mess of 1962+" replaced by his Almost-Novus Ordo "Motu Mess of 2012."
Newvatican's presses are now in high gear, spitting out this phony "Less than Extraordinary" Missal of 2012 that is to go into effect for all "Motu" Messes on the First Sunday of Advent, December 2, 2012. The new "Motu" missal sports a number of changes that would warm the cockles of the Freemason Bugnini's heart:
Benedict-Ratzinger's stated long-term aim was not to allow the Half Novus Ordo "Motu Mess of 1962+" to coexist beside the full-blown Novus Ordo of 1969, but to move the "Motu" Mess toward the 1969 version. In effect, Ratzinger wants to implement a virtual Vatican III, but this time more gradually than Paul VI-Montini and Bugnini did, so as not to stir up too much opposition.
Good Catholics, the clueless Motarians will get caught in Ratzinger's rat trap, remaining ignorant of the history of the 1960s and consequently falling under the ridicule of the great Latin writer, Marcus Tullius Cicero, who warned: "To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child." Truly, the Motarians remain children, not true Catholics.
Newchurchers in Kansas City, Kansas, are outraged against Benedict-Ratzinger for refusing to fire the "Pornographic Bishop," Robert Finn, Newchurch bishop of Kansas City, who was convicted on September 6, 2012, on a child-pornography concealment charge. Even the Kansas City Star is calling for Finn's ouster. Yet Ratzinger has hunkered down in the bunker at his summer castle, conducting classes on false "oecumenism" for his former college students.
Benedict-Ratzinger, who has not fired a single one of his paedophile bishops, is refusing to fire Finn as well, and Finn is himself refusing to resign. In a celebrated case bearing Ratzinger's personal signature, Ratzinger himself refused to remove a presbyter who raped as many as 200 deaf boys in a Newchurch orphanage, even though several Newbishops repeatedly warned Ratzinger that failure to act on the matter could embarrass the Church, according to Newchurch files newly unearthed as part of a lawsuit, according to the New York Times.
According to the British Guardian, Ratzinger is being bombarded with demands to dismiss Finn from his position or resign as pope, but Ratzinger is not yet budging. Newchurchers who have now turned against Ratzinger have launched a campaign to put even more pressure on Ratzinger to fire his criminal bishop. The growing movement is called "Bishop Finn Must Go." Since Ratzinger alone has the ultimate authority over bishops, all he would have to do is give the word, and Finn would be out. According to documents that came out in court, Finn had ordered his Vicar General not to report the presbyter's crimes to police and said he would personally take care of the "pornographic presbyter." After the vicar general saw Finn taking no action for several months, he himself turned Finn in to police. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the New York Times.]
A spokesman for the world's largest child victim's group called for Ratzinger to fire Finn, stating:
Now, for the first time in U.S. history, you have a [New]diocese headed by a proven criminal. You [Ratzinger] must act if you are serious about making the [New]church safer for children, discouraging future cover-ups in child sex cases, and ameliorating the wounds of tens of thousands of suffering adult victims and millions of betrayed parishioners.
The criminal conviction of Finn sends a clear message to Benedict-Ratzinger and his Newchurch of the New Order that those officials responsible for the safety of children will be held accountable, no matter how high their post in the hierarchy. Finn has the distinction of becoming the first (but not to be the last) U.S. Newbishop to be convicted in Benedict-Ratzinger's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. A key finding in the Finn case was the acknowledgment that he was indeed a mandated "reporter" under the law, thus with the duty to report suspicion of child abuse. The Kansas City Star, in an editorial calling for Finn's firing, opined:
The whole imbroglio has not only decimated the [New]church's credibility but its moral standing. Finn's conviction is a strong reminder that he must not be allowed to remain in his post as bishop. In legal terms, Finn got off easy. But the [New]church and its hierarchy have been put on notice.
Good Catholics, the New Order bishop attempted to cover up his crime by posing as a "conservative," a Motarian, a supporter of the "Extrordinary Mess," while all the time he was practicing the Modernist Newchurch doctrine of ignoring sex crimes against children by his presbyters. Finn's hypocrisy should sicken the Motarians, who should be in the forefront of calling for his ouster. But they aren't. They themselves are accomplices in Benedict-Ratzinger's Great "Motu" Mess Hoax.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Benedict-Ratzinger is now saying that he wishes to increase the respect for his papacy because of the public ridicule he is experiencing. The Italians are ridiculing him mercilessly. Recently, Italy attempted to ban a mainstream magazine with a cover that showed Ratzinger with a yellow stain soiling the front of his white cassock. A caption beneath the picture stated: "The leak in the Vatican has been found." All over the internet Newchurchers are expressing outrage against their pope, calling him the "Paedophile Pope," a term that you TRADITIO Fathers first originated years ago.
So, what is Ratzinger doing to enhance his diminishing credibility? One of his responses is to attempt to get rid of serious-minded sede-vacantists and using Bernie Fellay and his Neo-SSPX to cast aspersions on them. The irony is that the Archbishop-Founder of the SSPX, Marcel Lefebvre, admitted as early as the foundation of the Society in the early 1970s, to his death in 1991, that there was a possibility that the See of Peter was vacant by reason of defection from the Catholic faith. By the time of his death in 1991, the Archbishop had not reached a definitive conclusion on that point, but he consistently admitted that it was a possibility, all the more so as the Newchurch of the New Order undeniably became less and less Catholic before everyone's eyes.
In my opinion, that is also why Ratzinger wants Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX around him: to enhance his appearance of holiness and credibility, two things that he has essentially lost in the eyes of the world and of Newchurchers. Fellay is one of the few left who worship Ratzinger as a god, whereas most of the world now regards him as a Devil. The downfall of Ratzinger is imminent. It is more than ironic that right before Ratzinger is ready to sink to the bottom, Fellay and his NSSPX are going to join him in the pit.
A significant story that the TRADITIO Network has been reporting on to you has reached a spectacular conclusion. On September 6, 2012, the first U.S. Newbishop has been convicted of a sex crime for not reporting to police the sex crimes of one of his presbyters, whom he knew to be taking pornographic photographs of children. Newchurch's bishop Robert Finn of Kansas City, Missouri, has been found guilty of failing to report evidence of sexual abuse by a presbyter in his Newdiocese.
Finn fits the pattern of many of these perverted Newchurch bishops. You'd think that they would be liberalists, but actually many of them are "conservatives," hiding behind fancy clothes and the falsely-termed "Extraordinary" Mess of 1962+. These "Extraordinary" phonies are worse than the outright liberalists! The conservatives deceitfully try to garner support and money from Neocon Newchurhers by allowing a "Motu" Mess here and there, but privately they are more often caught in immoral acts than the liberalists.
The case involved the paedophile presbyter Shawn Ratigan, who was caught with hundreds of pornographic images of children on his computer. Newbishop Finn admitted that he and other Newchurch officials "knew for months" about the pornographic images that Ratigan had been taking of children at St. Patrick's School for a year, but Finn failed to report the suspected paedophiliac crimes to the police, as required by Missouri's mandatory reporting law. The images, including a series of photographs of a naked 2-year old girl, had been discovered by a computer technician working on Ratigan's laptop. Ratigan had also been observed giving the children "lap-dances." Ratigan awaits sentencing after pleading guilty in federal court to five counts of producing or attempting to produce child pornography. He still faces pornography charges in Clay County.
Newbishop Finn had been scheduled to go before a jury trial in less than three weeks, but he chickened out. He didn't want his and Newchurch's dirty laundry paraded before the public for ridicule, derision, and outrage in what was expected to be a two-week jury trial. Therefore, Finn opted to plead guilty so that he could get a quickie verdict before a judge. The judge's verdict included an acknowledgement from Finn that he is a mandated child-abuse reporter under Missouri law. That admission has stunning implications for catching more pervert Newchurch bishops in the future.
Newchurch's Sex Holocaust has dogged Finn almost from the beginning of his tenure as Newbishop in 2005, appointed by the "Unblessed" JPII-Woytla, the first of the "Paedophile Popes." Finn has come under extreme criticism for failing to respond to warnings for more than a year, and irate Newchurchers have begun calling for his ouster in a "Bishop Finn Must Go" campaign. Yet the now officially-criminal Finn will not resign. He has had pictures of his own taken with Benedict-Ratzinger, and it just wouldn't do to draw attention to the fact that Ratzinger is the head honcho of a Newchurch network of paedophile presbyters! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Kansas City Star.]
Good Catholics, the Finn verdict should encourage other prosecutors to cut of the heads of Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. Like the multi-headed Hydra, these Newchurch bishops have become accomplishes in the rape of children by their presbyters. They care more for their perverted presbyters than for children. Under no circumstances can a parent morally justify sending his child to a Newchurch school. Not only will the child be taught heresy but also his physical well-being will be put into grave jeopardy.
After Randy Engel's Rite of Sodomy, released from 2006 to 2012 in a three-volume expose of the homosexual takeover of Newchurch "seminaries," it cannot be denied that Newchurch "seminaries" have become essentially homosexual brothels to service senior clergy. The few candidates who have remained clueless in spite of substantial publicity of this fact, mistakenly thinking that they were "serving God" in the unCatholic Newchurch, wake up to reality when they are gang-raped by their fellow seminarians.
Now we have a Newchurch presbyter officially assisting at his cousin's "gay marriage" to another man on August 19, 2012, in New York. Presbyter Michael DeVito officiated with a Biblical reading at the ceremony. You can be sure that it wasn't St. Paul's Epistle to the Romans (1:32/DRV), which teaches: "They who do such things are worthy of death: and not only they that do them, but they also that consent to them that do them. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the New York Times.]
Good Catholics, if you think that Benedict-Ratzinger is unaware that his New Order seminaries have turned into homosexual brothels, you're kidding yourself. Reading just a page of the thousands in Randy Engel's carefully-documented volumes is enough to make one vomit and completely swear off the New Order sect, even if it tries to cover up its blasphemies with a little Latin and a Half Novus Ordo Vatican II "Extraordinary Mess."
In the continuing, but (so far) fruitless, efforts of the Neo-SSPX's Superior-Dictator, Bernie Fellay, to turn over traditional Catholic Archbishop Lefebvre's Society of St. Pius X into the hands of the Modernist New Order sect and Benedict-Ratzinger, the Modernist leader "Fr." Ratzinger at Vatican II, Marcel Fellay has attempted to expurgate from his Neo-SSPX sites the Archbishop-Founder's clear statements that the See of Peter could be vacant because of the heresy of the post Vatican II Newpopes, starting with Paul VI-Montini.
As early as 1976 the Archbishop indicated that if things got any worse, he could see himself adopting the sede-vacantist theory. He died in 1992, so he did not see the collapse of JPII-Wojyla's Newpapcy into outright paganism, highlighted by the sacrilege of putting the Buddha a top the Novus Ordo tabernacle at Assisi, and Josef Ratzinger's accession to the Newpapacy amidst the grossest immoralities and doctrinal changes. As early as 1977, the Archbishop prudently addressed the issue in a balanced way as follows:
A grave problem confronts the conscience and the faith of all Catholics since the beginning of Paul VI’s pontificate: how can a pope who is truly successor of Peter, to whom the assistance of the Holy Ghost has been promised, preside over the most radical and far-reaching destruction of the Church ever known, in so short a time, beyond what any heresiarch has ever achieved? The question is therefore definitive: is Paul VI, has Paul VI ever been, the successor of Peter? If the reply is negative, that Paul VI has never been, or no longer is, pope, our attitude will be that of sede vacante periods, which would simplify the problem. Some theologians say that this is the case, relying on the statements of theologians of the past, approved by the Church, who have studied the problem of the heretical pope, the schismatic pope, or the pope who in practice abandons his charge of supreme Pastor. It is not impossible that this [sede-vacantist] hypothesis will one day be confirmed by the Church.
In 1986, about ten years later, after eight years of the pagan-leaning JPII-Wojtyla, but before the gross sacrilege later that year, when the Buddha was placed atop the Novus Ordo tablernacle at Wojtyla's Assisi "Oecumenical" Conference, it seemed that the Archbishop was moving a little more toward the sede-vacantist theory: "For some time, many people, the sede-vacantists, have been saying, 'there is no longer a pope.' But I think that for me it was not yet the time to say that, because it was not sure, it was not evident."
The Archbishop was quite well aware of the teaching of Catholic theologians for centuries that the pope can become a heretic and lose his papal office. In 1976 the Archbishop summed up the teaching of these Catholic theologians as follows:
To whatever extent the pope departs from tradition, he would become schismatic; he would breach with the Church. Theologians such as St. Bellarmine, Cajetan, Cardinal Journet, and many others have studied this possibility. So it is not something inconceivable. Heresy, schism, ipso facto excommunication, and invalidity of election are just several reasons why a pope might in fact never have been pope or might no longer be one. In this obviously very exceptional case, the Church would be in a situation similar to that which prevails after the death of a Pontiff.
The Archbishop's close collaborator, Antonio de Castro Mayer, Bishop of Campos, Brazil, who was with the Archbishop the co-consecrator of Fellay, Williamson, Tissier, and Galarreta in 1988, was a public sede-vacantist.

Like the Archbishop, the TRADITIO Fathers have not themselves espoused the sede-vacantist theory, but recognize that the matter is certainly open to debate, together with other theories that attempt to explain the patently unCatholic state in which the Newchurch of the New Order and its Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger, find themselves. 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) department, in the section "Sede-vacantism."
As previously reported in these Daily Commentaries, Newfranciscan friar-presbyter Benedict Groeschel, a EWTN "Charismatic Catholic [Sic]" cable star, stated in an interview that presbyters who rape children "should not go to jail." He also stated that he is "sympathetic" to Jerry Sandusky, the college football coach who was convicted of raping 45 children. Although the interview was publled from EWTN's National Catholic Register, and Groeschel made the usual pro forma apology, even Newchurchers were outraged at the statement of this high official of the Newchurch archdiocese of New York, led by the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops president, Timothy Dolan.
Because of viewer outrage, the EWTN cable network fired Groeschel on September 3, 2012, but stirred up even more controversy by describing him as "of tremendous compassion" and "spiritual insights." EWTN, which has sunk into Newchurch immorality after the sidelining of foundress Mother Angelica in 2000, dared to term as "compassionate" Groeschel, who stated that presbyters ought to get a free shot at raping a children without going to jail the first time because "their intention was not committing a crime." He claimed that the child victims had "seduced" the presbyters, not the other way around.
Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch, as has been its practice for decades, had to find a "cover story" to explain Groeschel's public exposure of the corrupt mind of Newchurch. The cover story is that Groeschel's "physical condition and mental clarity have deteriorated." Well, if that is the case, why was he showcased every week on EWTN? Newchurchers make very bad liars! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
Good Catholics, once again the immoral corruption of Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch of the New Order is exposed. The Groeschel case is particularly embarrassing because it revealed directly how perverted the minds of Newhurch officials are, who still blame the child victims, not the presbyters, and believe that presbyters should not go to jail for child rape -- at least the first time. That mindset explains why the most recent published audit of sex crimes against children by Benedict-Ratzinger's Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters shows that these crimes are going up, not down, as Ratzinger would have you falsely believe.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I have a friend who had two marriages, two wives, children from both marriages, and two divorces. What is the procedure for him to return to the Church? The scandal is that this friend is no ignoramus about the Faith. He was born in 1947 and was an altar boy growing up. I was told by someone that I was told that he could go to confession, and then he could receive Communion the same day and would be "in good standing" again. Is that really true? It doesn't sound Catholic to be, but hypocritical!
THE TRADITIO FATHERS REPLY
No, that is not true. There isn't some kind of "abracadabra" to make the most grievous sins just disappear. A person who has married in the Catholic Church, then obtained a civil divorce and remarried in front of a civil official has, under traditional canon law, excommunicated himself by his public act. Our Lord, as reported in all four Gospels, is very specific in stating that one who divorces a spouse and marries another is a public adulterer and subject to the penalty for such action, which, in His time, was the death penalty. Thus, this sin is one of the most grievous possible.
Sometimes, later in life, after the excommunicate has left a trail of devastation in two (or more) "marriages," and often children attached to each of the "marriages," some of whom the excommunicate has made illegitimate by his act, the excommunicate wants to be readmitted to the Catholic Church.
Such a sin cannot be confessed and absolved merely in the confessional, which is known as the "internal forum." This sin is a grievous sin committed publicly, and thus the excommunicate must express public contrition for the sin, be absolved, and do penance in the "public forum." Otherwise, any absolution is null and void. The faithful know of his public sin and thus must, in justice and charity, know that he has expressed public contrition and been absolved publicly. Otherwise, great scandal would ensue, and the faithful might not be deterred from such serious sin, thinking falsely that it is easily remediated.
The excommunicate must first approach a priest, as the lepers of the Biblical narrative did. The priest must determine that the excommunicate is truly contrite and willing to do penance for his continuing sin and its consequences upon himself and others. When possible, he must make a corrective change in his life for the purpose of remediating the consequences of his sin upon others, including his wives and his children.
If the priest finds the excommunicate to be truly contrite and willing to remediate the consequences of his sin upon others, the priest may absolve the excommunicate from his sin in the public forum, before at least two witnesses, using a rite that it similar to absolving those who have committed public heresy by joining a non-Catholic sect. Only then can the excommunicate be restored to the Catholic Church.
Newchurch's cardinal Christoph Schonborn revealed on August 30, 2012, that Benedict-Ratzinger would be reprising his role as a Modernist leader at Vatican II by teaching a course, known as Schulkreis, in Modernism/Oecumenism at his summer castle. Every summer Ratzinger does this, to forward his New Order sect's joining with heretics. In the past, for example, he has featured the excommunicate Hans Kung, one of Ratzinger's closest friends. In 2012 Ratzinger will schmooze with heretic Lutherans and Anglicans. Ratzinger's heresy classes begin August 31, 2012.
The course will be based on the 2009 book, Harvesting the Fruits, by Newcardinal Walter Kasper, another radical Modernist. The heretics featured will be Lutheran bishop emeritus Ulrich Wilkens and Anglican bishop Charles Morereau. Another Modernist Newcardinal, Kurt "Kook" Koch, will also participate. The birds of a heretic feather are sure flocking together, and their avian leader is none other than Ratzinger! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Zenit.]
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
In his September 1, 2012, Open Bulletin on the goings-on at the Neo-SSPX's July 2012 Extraordinary Chapter meeting, from which he was excluded by Bernie Fellay, the NSSPX's senior bishop Richard Williamson abandons any semblance of diplomacy and tact, and tells the NSSPXers that he finds an "alarming weakness on the part of the Society's leaders as a whole." His statement is in regard to the Chapter's publication of "Six Conditions" (the derisive quotation marks are his) for entering into a future agreement with Newrome. By using the plural form, "leaders", Williamson is not exempting any capitulant from his indictment, including bishops Tissier and Galarreta.
As a long time supporter of the NSSPX, I am particularly saddened by the reluctance of one of its leaders, bishop Tissier de Mallerais, to withstand Fellay to his face in the manner of St. Paul towards St. Peter. In 2009 Tisser wrote an absolutely brilliant and devastating 74 page critique of Benedict-Ratzinger's understanding of Tradition entitled, "Faith Imperiled by Reason: Benedict XVI's Hermeneutics." I am the told that Fellay has ordered the document removed from NSSPX websites. If Tissier still believes what he wrote three years ago, he cannot blindly follow Fellay today simply because he is the Superior General of the NSSPX. Blind obedience will make Bishop Williamson's words those of a prophet.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
The trouble with Williamson is that he is all words and no action. He has reneged on his promise to traditional Catholics who are attached to Archbishop Lefebvre's original principles to found another organization and be their leader, if ever the Society strayed from those principles, as it has under the dictatorship of Bernie Fellay. If Williamson is to have any credibility, he and the other two bishops must declare their vote of No Confidence in Fellay as Superior General and call upon the NSSPXers to stop supporting and funding him. In fact, the three bishops should have joined together to do this before the Extraordinary Chapter and led the capitulants there in an election of a new Superior General. It is the Modernists who play games with words, but a man who claims to be a traditional Catholic bishop should be judged more by his actions than his mere words.
It is long past the time for Williamson, Tissier, and Galaretta in justice to act against the Judas bishop Fellay, who has destroyed Archbishop Lefebvre's Society of St. Pius X. At this point they are all looking like pusillanimous frauds, no longer worthy to be called traditional Catholic bishops.
The Newjesuits more than any other Newchurch order have destroyed Catholicism. They lead the Newchurch in child rapes, conversions to Communism, and pandering false doctrine (e.g., "liberation theology"). Newcardinal Carlo Martini was one of these Newjesuits, whose coven of corruption was exposed by Fr. Malachi Martin in his 1988 book, The Jesuits: The Society of Jesus and the Betrayal of the Roman Catholic Church. Fr. Martin had seen the Modernistic apostasy of the Jesuits and requested, and was granted, release from the order in 1965. Martini, however, once a candidate for the Newpapacy, remained in the corrupt order and became one of the most strident mouthpieces for the Modernist heresy.
On August 31, 2012, at age 85, Carlo Martini went to his eternal judgment. Some of his last words were that the Church is "200 years behind." He couldn't be speaking of the Catholic Church, of which he was not a member (he was a Protestantized New Order sectarian), because the Catholic Church and its teachings are "immemorial," not fixed in any time. In his last interview, with the Italian daily Corriere della Sera, he called for the Church "to admit its errors and to embark on a radical path of change." He was an open advocate of many immoralities that are common in secular society, such as condoms, homosexuality, and even abortion.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
As a traditional Dominican Catholic monk here in England, I am scandalized by the case of Lawrence Soper, a presbyter of the Newchurch of the New Order. After reading of a case like this, it baffles me how anyone can think that he is honoring God by attending an invalid and sacrilegious service at a Novus Ordo temple or, even worse, aiding and abetting this sort of conduct by making financial donations to Newchurch.
According to BBC News, police have made extensive inquiries to try to trace presbyter Lawrence Soper and have on September 2, 2012, obtained a European Arrest Warrant for the criminal who raped children at St. Benedict's School in West London. Police believe that he may be hiding out at Newvatican under the protection of the "Paedophile Pope" Benedict-Ratzinger. We all know that this wouldn't be the first time that Ratzinger has done that!
It's understandable that many Newchurchers don't want to believe that Benedict-Ratzinger and his Newrome have lost the Faith. It's demoralizing, to say the least. But how much longer can the Newchurchers go on burying their heads in the sand while children are raped, and the Newchurch apparatus assists in the escape of the criminal presbyters?
I'm getting to the point where I am looking at Newchurch as an instrument of evil. Newchurch is worse than merely Protestant at this point. Newchurch has destroyed everything good (the Mass, the Sacraments, the Catholic Faith, churches, cathedrals, relics, Sacred Music) and has spread evil (child rape, lies, prostitution, fraud, pornography, etc.). THIS IS NOT THE CATHOLIC CHURCH FOUNDED BY JESUS CHRIST, AND ANYONE WHO THINKS THAT IT IS (LIKE BERNIE FELLAY) WAS NEVER CATHOLIC TO BEGIN WITH.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Did you see that at the conclusion of the U.S. Republican National Convention on August 30, 2012, Newchurch's cardinal Timothy Dolan gave a blasphemous "benediction"? He began the prayer to "Almighty God, Father of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and Jesus." I thought that Jesus is God, the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity. The other three aren't God. Somehow, in the New Order sect, "Jesus" has become just another patriarch. This proves that Newchurch is so corrupt, so scandalous, so sacrilegious, and so downright unCatholic that it even fails to recognize the Blessed Trinity.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Yes, we did see that. We also saw Dolan's getup. He looked more like a Protestant minister that even a Novus Ordo cardinal. He had on just a black clergy suit with a crucifix (it's so non-descript that it looks like simple cross from a distance), not a real pectoral cross. This provides just more evidence that Newchurch and its minions are not Catholic, but Protestant.
Moreover, Catholics typically do not use the term "Jesus" alone. The Holy Name, upon the utterance of which the priest at Mass bows his head deeply (you didn't see Dolan doing this at the convention) is usually joined with "Christ," or, more often, a periphrasis is used, such as "Our Lord." There is a very good reason why Dolan omitted the title Christ. This term is not a name, but a title: the Christ, the Anointed One, the Messias.
If Dolan had used the term "Jesus Christ," he would have been proclaiming the Catholic dogma that Our Lord is the Messias for both the Gentiles and the Jews. And that dogma Dolan does not want to proclaim because it would offend the Jewish infidels. Too bad! The truth is the truth, but Dolan doesn't proclaim it. He is an imposter bishop, a Modernist heretic, upon whose face God has planted a stupid grin that he cannot seem to lose, as if God were telling the world: this is no priest, but a Modernist fool!
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
As you know, Bernie Fellay is inviting invalid Novus Ordo presbyters to serve his Neo-SSPX their chapels. These presbyters may be heretics, but don't label them as stupid. They have skilled training in surreptitious attacks upon traditional doctrine. These imported presbyters are on a campaign to shame those who adhere to traditional Catholic doctrine and spurn the New Order sect, which Fellay wishes to join. It is a keen strategy, probably devised in Newrome itself. And it works wherever the NSSPXers are too lazy to understand -- or care that more and more of their Messes are invalid.
The Devil is prowling everywhere, even in NSSPX chapels, even around the defenses of "good" NSSPX Priests. Traditional Catholics must be vigilant. Better to stay away from the NSSPX until these Novus Ordo presbyters and the "bad" NSSPX priests are separated from the spoiled milk of the Society and the "Judas" bishop Fellay.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Your comments about the decline of Benedict-Ratzinger are spot on. Few people have noticed that by first week of April 2012, the rate of appointing diocesan bishops has declined to almost zero. Since then, he has been appointing bishops by the month at the rate at which his predecessor appointed them almost daily. Thus, Ratzinger has almost completely stopped appointing bishops for his New Order sect.
At first some thought that Ratzinger had "unofficially" raised the retirement age to 78 in preparation for a change to the current official age of 75. But then, gradually, it became apparent that this was not the case. Ratzinger is not appointing Newbishops because he has lost control over Newchurch. Now the paymaster has called and has demanded that more Germans be put in charge: Koch and then Muller. What are German Newprelates most known for? Their insane anti-traditional bias. Muller may indeed be in the process of taking over, but he would be taking over only the Titanic that the New Order sect has become.
Yet another EWTN "Charismatic Catholic [Sic]" Cable Network bigwig has been slammed for immorality, and his ouster is being sought. If that happens, Benedict Groeschel will suffer the same fate as several of his fellow EWTN presbyter TV "stars," like presbyter John Corapi, who was dismissed for shooting up illegal drugs, drunkenness, and consorting with prostitutes.
Groeschel ought to know better. The New Order Franciscan friar is supposed to be the "Director of the Office for Spiritual Development for the Newchurch Archdiocese of New York." In an interview to the National Catholic Register during the week of August 26, 2012, which has now been expunged, Groeschel claimed that in Benedict-Ratzinger's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, it is the children who are the "seducers" of the presbyters, not the other way around. Groeschel expressed his sympathy with Jerry Sandusky, the Pennsylvania State College football coach, who was convicted in June 2012 of almost fifty counts of the rape of children. Some years ago Groeschel himself was publicly accused of paedophilia, but somehow got off. Maybe the police should go back and re-investigate his case in light of subsequent events.
The National Catholic Register is owned by -- guess who -- the "Charismatic Catholic [Sic]" EWTN Cable Network itself! The network, which still calls itself "Catholic," is now run by a bunch of Protestants, as exposed in the book, EWTN: A Network Gone Wrong, published in 2006, six years after Mother Angelica, herself a Protestantized Novus Ordinarian, stepped down for health reasons. Before 2011 the network was run by the Legion of Christ, the paedophile organization, whose head, Marciel Maciel, for years was raping men, women, children, and seminarians with abandon, while Legion officials and JPII-Wojtyla kept it secret.
Yet Groeschel himself admitted in the interview that more than 8,000 presbyters have raped children; that is one in every 50 presbyters. Experts laugh at the number as ridiculously low, but that number doesn't seem to bother Groeschel. Moreover, Groeschel believes that every presbyter should get one free child rape. "I'm inclined to think, on their first offense, they should not go to jail because their intention was not committing a crime." Think of that. Presbyter Groeschel, a high official in Newchurch, believes that a rapist doesn't intend to commit a crime. Is he taking personal lessons from the "Paedophile Pope" Benedict-Ratzinger himself?
Good Catholics, this is what the immoral Newchurch leaders still believe. They just usually aren't so open about stating their criminal mind. Groeschel, Benedict-Ratzinger, Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters, are still suborning more child rapes than ever -- so the latest statistics show -- while they lie to the clueless Newchurchers by saying that the problem has been "solved," so that the Newchurchers will keep coming to invalid Novus Ordo Messes and put their money in the collection-plate to pay off for sex crimes. On the other hand, true Catholics believe in miracles, but they aren't stupid enough to believe that elephants fly, no what Groeschel and Ratzinger say!
Just as we TRADITIO Fathers had warned our readers, now there is confirmation that Bernie Fellay has not abandoned his ambitions for New Order purple. We warned that the Neo-SSPX's Extraordinary Chapter meeting in early July 2012, which was actually quite divisive according to internal reports, was positioned by the ever-mendacious (New)bishop "Faker" Fellay to have resulted in a "reunified" NSSPX. We warned that this poseur was simply trying to give a self-serving "spin" to the fact that his timetable to sell out to the New Order sect had failed, dismally. Then Fellay proceed to expel and exile all the NSSPX bishops and some thirty priests who had stood against his Hidenburg Programme and had clung to Archbishop Lefebvre's traditional Catholic foundation.
Any observant person could have figured this out -- Fellay's ambitions to become recognized by the New Order sect that the Archbishop called "not Catholic" is clear for all to see--, but now we have confirmation, and that from one of the NSSPX bishops himself. Fellay is again trying to tell more lies to his NSSPX members to lull then to sleep while he does a backroom deal with the New Order sect that they don't want.
The reason for Fellay's urgency is exactly what we TRADITIO Fathers have warned: Ratzinger is sick and may be dead before any "deal" can be made. Even so, even if a deal were made with Ratzinger, it is likely to be nullified by his successor. Tissier on August 29, 2012, revealed that "Judas" Fellay is "still very committed to a deal." Tissier told an NSSPX priest in Econe, Switzerland:
I am very heartbroken. All of our efforts to stop Bishop Fellay have been in vain. He has ignored us three bishops, ignored those who were opposed to his plans at the General Chapter. He has ignored the death of the other organizations that have made deals with [New]rome, ignored the priests who have spoken out, ignored the many faithful who have confronted him. Bishop Fellay still is completely committed to a deal with [New]rome and is not at all altering his course. Bishop Fellay stated after the General Chapter had concluded that we must make a deal now. Now is the critical time, before Pope Benedict dies. The [N]SSPX/[New]rome talks are scheduled to resume in October 2012.
The report from Econe also indicated that the NSSPX bishops have made a sort of truce with Fellay until that time. A truce by the bishops is exactly the wrong thing to do. Now is the time for action: to cut the floor out from Fellay before he can do even more damage to the NSSPX and Archbishop Lefebvre's principles than he has already.
On the other hand, the TRADITIO Network has received some reports that the Neo-SSPX's senior bishop, Richard Williamson has gone to Brazil to confer the Sacrament of Confirmation and to give some lectures, without the "permission" of Bernie Fellay. Is this the first hint at Williamson's eventual separation from Fellay's corrupt organization? More confirmation needs to come in before we can say for sure, but we know that Williamson's trip has been knocked by Neo-SSPX mouthpieces as "discourteous" and "disobedient."
But Fellay's treason has not gone unanswered. Finally, after years of the TRADITIO Network's warnings, a groundswell of NSSPX members has started a "Fellay Resistance Movement." The movement is notable in Great Britain, the Philippines, the United States, particularly in those places where Dictator-superior Fellay has expelled and banished the NSSPX's best leaders and has even wrenched bishops Tissier and Galarreta from their home regions.
All of Fellay's perfidious plans may be quickly brought to naught, however, as Ratzinger is staring at the Hell fires that he will likely face very shortly for his active complicity in destroying the Catholic Faith and suborning the rape of children by thousands of his clergy. Then Fellay will have to deal with a new pope, such as Gerhard Muller, currently the No. 3 man at Newvatican as Prefect of the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith, an avowed enemy of Fellay, who will waste no time wiping him and his Neo-SSPX off the face of the New Order.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I recently had a little debate with a friend over the issue of eating out at a diner after attending Mass. I thought that this might be forbidden because you are causing others to perform servile work on a day that expressly forbids it. What about eating out after Mass?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
The prohibition of servile work on Sunday is not absolute. There is a lot of "common law" in its interpretation in traditional Catholic moral theology depending on the region, the population, and the circumstances. In the United States, for example, states that once had "blue laws," which prohibited certain kinds of commerce on Sunday, had a number of exceptions for necessities, such as food service, pharmacies, hardware, clothing, etc.
The Third Commandment primarily commands us to "keep holy the Lord's Day." Eating, or assisting others in the necessity of eating, does not prevent Catholics from making a thanksgiving after Mass, studying the Epistle and Gospel of the Sunday, discussing the instruction in the sermon just heard, reading spiritual works, praying individually or as a family, etc. Yet how many do even these few spiritual things to keep holy the Lord's Day, wherever they may eat?
To put this matter into perspective, we suspect that there are many who might eat at home and do none of these important spiritual things, whereas those who may have to eat out might well be going home to do them. What do you think that Our Lord would be more concerned about: where you eat or how you are spending His day spiritually after you eat?
You can always count on those Newchurch bishops to be hypocrites. After all, they constantly try to fob off their anti-Catholic New Order on the pseudo-traditionalists as "Catholic." It seems that the ones who like to put themselves out falsely as "conservative" in order to raid the pocketbooks of the pseudo-traditionalist are the worst hypocrites of all.
The latest case in point is Salvatore "Souse" Cordileone, the outgoing Newbishop of Oakland, California, whom Benedict-Ratzinger has now appointed to jump across the bay to become the Newarchbishop of San Francisco. The "Paedophile Pope" could not have appointed a more appropriate Newprelate to serve the City of San Sodomy. Cordileone is in reality a homophile, whose Newcathedral in Oakland features beside his Novus Ordo "dinner table" a scandalous life-sized "Gay Crucifix," upon which the New Order's lord is not Jesus Christ, but some "gay" fop, bereft of his crown of thorns with his hair parted in the middle. Moreover, Cordileone personally revised and approved for Newdiocesan use a handbook for the "queering of Catholic [sic] parishes," written by one of his homosexual presbyters, entitled Setting the Table: Preparing Catholic [Sic] Parishes to Welcome Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual and Transgender People and Their Families.
At 00:26 local time on the morning of August 25, 2012, Cordileone was arrested by San Diego, California, police for drunk driving. That means that he must have had at least three drinks after 11:30 at night to put him over the limit, grossly excessive for the family dinner that he claims that he was attending. Cordileone has admitted in a press release that he is guilty and has "brought disgrace upon the [New]church and myself."
This hypocritical "Souse" Newbishop in his press release prays that God "will bring some good out of this." But what did he then actually do? Instead of taking God's "good" path and resigning as Newbishop, he proceeded to move up his installation in San Francisco to October 4, 2012, now five days before his arraignment instead of the previous six days after. Apparently, Cordileone didn't want to take any chances that he would be in jail for his installation, as in California drunk driving carries a mandatory jail sentence. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
Good Catholics, St. Paul tells us how to act toward such a person: "But now I have written to you, not to keep company, if any man that is named a brother, be a fornicator, or covetous, or a server of idols, or a railer, or a drunkard, or an extortioner: with such a one, not so much as to eat" (1 Corinthians 5:11/DRV). All the more so a purported bishop! Does the hypocrisy of these Newchurch prelates, supported by the Arch-hypocrite in Newrome, never cease? And these pseudo-traditionalists with their Half Novus Ordo Vatican II Mess of 1962, now to become Benedict-Ratzinger's "Motu Mess of 2012," are the worst hypocrites of all. At least the Modernists don't make any bones about the fact that they are of a New Order.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I made the mistake of posting a question on the "Catholic" section of one of those internet discussion groups. I asked what would happen if a traditional pope took office and restored the traditional Catholic Faith back to the Church. One individual answered me: "This cannot happen because Vatican II did take place, and the visible Church is post Vatican II. The Catholic [Sic] Church is always progressive, always moving forward. Your question almost sounds like a fundamentalist who has adopted anti-Catholic notions -- usually from ignorance (bigotry)."
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
So, the "charitable" New Order sectarian had the gall to call you, a true (traditional) Catholic, every nasty name in the book. Our readers report that this kind of response is typical in those groups. First of all, we have to warn you against seeking answers to religious questions from those who have no true knowledge of the Faith. It is a case of, as Our Lord, described such things, the blind leading the blind, and both falling into the pit. As you have discovered, you get a false answer that just upsets you. It is actually a principle of Catholic moral teaching that a Catholic must violate the First Commandment of God by casually exposing his Faith to doubt, a violation of the First Commandment.
Remember the Rule 1 of the Five Practical Rules to Judge the Validity of the New Order: TREAT THE NEW ORDER SECT, ITS SERVICES AND ITS CLERGY AS PROTESTANTS, AND ACT TOWARD THEM AS YOU WOULD TOWARD PROTESTANT SECTS, PROTESTANT SERVICES, AND PROTESTANT MINISTERS. For the other four rules, click on FAQ03: Should I Ever Attend the "New Mass" and "New Sacraments"? in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics) department.
The answer you received wreaks of the Modernist heresy. The individual's answer to you is worse than that a Protestant heretic would give. Moreover, it is downright ignorant. Five councils of the Church have been voided, so Vatican II has no "lock." Moreover, in the fourth century, the Arian heretics had taken over the "visible" Church, including a few popes, three of whom were excommunicated, so that argument doesn't hold water either. Clearly, the individual is the one who is ignorant of Catholicism and is himself a "fundamentalist who has adopted anti-Catholic notions," not you.
We are what you once were.
We believe what you once believed.
We worship as you once worshipped.
If you were right then, we are right now.
If we are wrong now, you were wrong then.
Consider this. If, despite its blatant departure from the traditions of the Church, the New Order sect, with its Novus Ordo service and "sacraments," its New Theology, and its New Morality are "Catholic," then all the Catholic Saints were superstitious simpletons, all the Catholic theologians were liars, and all of our Catholic forefathers were duped idiots, including some of the greatest minds in human history: St. Thomas Aquinas, St. Robert Bellarmine, St. Thomas More, St. Catherine of Siena, St. Augustine, St. Ambrose, St. Benedict, St. Louis de Montfort.
These and all previous Catholics were traditional Catholics. They all believed exactly the same thing as traditional Catholics today do. It is not a mere matter of opinion, but a matter of irrefutable fact that the traditional Faith, the traditional Mass, and the traditional Sacraments are Catholic, not the novel "doctrines" of Vatican II, not the New Order "morality" that allows rampant rape of children by Newclergy, and certainly not the New Order service, which was fabricated by a Freemason cleric, assisted by a Committee of Six Protestant Ministers.
No one who calls himself a Catholic can have anything to do with a New Order service that defines itself not as Mass, but in Protestant terminology as an "assembly of the people." The New Order service perverts Christ's own most solemn Consecratory Prayer (Canon) handed down from Apostolic times, contradicts Christ's and His Church's sacrificial intention, and breaks the solemn oath traditionally sworn by every priest at his ordination and every bishop at his consecration.
Good Catholics, we strongly recommend that you not slothfully waste your time with those internet discussion boards and with people whom St. Paul calls "the foolish." Instead, spend that time studying the smartest of Catholics: St. Paul, St. Augustine, and St. Thomas Aquinas in particular. From them, you will learn something truly Catholic.
