The curtain on the fraud that is Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch of the New Order was lifted once again on January 24, 2012. It is commonly believed that Ratzinger is "traditionalist" and is against abortion. Now the world has seen this is just a public pose by Newpope that belies the truth.
Benedict-Ratzinger's "Catholic" hospital in Canon City, Colorado, near Denver, was charged by parents as allowing two of their two seven-month-old foetuses to die. In its legal defense, Ratzinger's Newchurch hospital argued that a foetus is "not a person." The aggrieved Newchurch parents are suing the "Catholic" hospital for fraud and wrongful death. "Pro-life" Newchurchers are outraged that the "Catholic" hospital would take such an "anti-life" position. One Neocon Newchurcher said that the hospital should be stripped of its "Catholic" status.
These Newchurch "pro-lifers" need to wake up and smell the coffee. Ratzinger will never do that. Why should he? He's allowed any number of children to be raped and sodomized under his personal signature of approval. Why should he be expected to do anything about a few dead foetuses? [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
Good Catholics, the real problem here is that Benedict-Ratzinger's New Order sect has for some fifty years being deliberately undermining Catholic moral doctrine to make it more acceptable to Modernists. Some of the most liberal Protestant sects, like the Episcopalians, may be moving faster toward this goal, but Ratzinger will eventually get there, if just a little more slowly. "Pro-life" marches by Newchurchers won't fix Newchurch. Only the ejecting of the unCatholic New Order sect from its takeover of the Catholic Church will rout these unCatholic immoral atrocities. Let's see a march for that!
On January 26, 2013, Franciscan friar Stephen Baker chose to take the down-elevator to eternity by committing suicide by knife after it was publicly revealed that he raped some 36 boys. Baker was attached to the New Order sect's St. Bernadine Monastery in Hollidaysburg, Pennsylvania.
The friar insinuated himself into sex crimes against children in a way that has now become familiar: under cover of religious authority and by being a "coach." We have seen how these "coaches" -- including those in the secular world as well, like Pennsylvania State's notorious Jerry Sandusky -- cleverly win over their child victims' confidence and then rape them.
Benedict-Ratzinger's New Order sect's leaders also became accomplices in the crimes in a way that has also become familiar. Even after Baker's superiors knew that he had raped children, they allowed him to "maintain a presence in the area," continuing to be involved in children's athletics. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
Aren't these Newchurch paedophiles clever? Baker assaulted and raped children under the guise of providing "therapeutic treatment" for sports injuries. His victims ranged from age 14 to 18. An officer of the Survivors Network of Those Abused by Presbyters (SNAP) indicated that she was "even sadder for the dozens of boys whom Baker assaulted." No doubt the clueless New Order parents of the boys that were raped and sodomized by this vile friar would have said he was the "best friar" they ever had!
Good Catholics, don't you believe it when Benedict-Ratzinger lies to you and tells you that his criminal clergy has been cleaned up, let alone Newpope himself. The Baker matter was still active in 2012, and Newchurch was still trying to cover it up, allowing the predator to continue in his role "coaching" children. Let's face it: Ratzinger and his Newchurch lieutenants are the real criminals here!
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I have started reading the New Jerusalem Bible and the New American Bible, but I don't know whether these are any good. Which Bible translation is the best?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
First of all, you need to know that one of the frauds in which Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch of the New Order, which falsely calls itself "Catholic," has done is to gut the Bible. It has done this very subtlety by "translating out" the teachings of Christ and "translating in" a fabricated liberalistic social doctrine that Christ did not teach.
You need to be very careful about so-called "translations." It is not really possible to "translate" one language into another. Much is always "lost in translation." As the Italian maxim puts it: Traduttore, traditore, a translator is a traitor. When the translation is from an ancient language like Hebrew, Greek, or Latin, much more is lost. At one time an educated person was able to read for himself Latin, and even some Greek and Hebrew, but no longer. Thus, even educated people today have been "dumbed down," in large part because of the failure of the New Order sect to promote Catholic studies, and are easily misled by fraudulent "translations."
If you must rely upon a translation, the most literal is best, as a literal translation does not inject as much error as a "free" translation. Virtually every modern translation is a "free" translation, full of deliberate errors. Certainly the New Jerusalem Bible is. It is actually a double translation, from Hebrew, Greek, and Latin to French, then from French to English. And bad as the New Jerusalem Bible is, the New American Bible is worse. This is the version fabricated by the New Order Church, which is trying to sell a liberalistic social doctrine. For that purpose, Newchurch has introduced patently false doctrines as "translations."
Literal versions that you can consult, readily available on line, are the Douay-Rheims version, published around the time of the King James version and the Confraternity version, published in the 1950s. Even the Revised Standard version, published in the 1950s and the King James version, published at the beginning of the 17th century, are pretty literal, as compared to any free "modern" translation after the 1950s.

In a speech given during Christian Unity Week, Benedict-Ratzinger spoke of the need for global "peace" and, in an obvious reference to the Newtown, Connecticu, school shootings, called for an "end to the massacres of unarmed civilians."
While Benedict-Ratzinger's pleas to end violence against the "unarmed" make for good sound bites, he has been, nevertheless, at the center of what has become the Church's greatest scandal. He has deliberately covered up the crimes -- murder, rape, assault, sodomy, embezzlement -- of his deranged subordinates and has taken virtually no action in bringing these monsters to justice.

Newchurch has shut down Benedict-Ratzinger's Latin "Motu" Mess of 1962+, sometimes erroneously termed the "Extraordinary" Mess, at the San Buenaventura Mission, one of the 21 California Missions founded by the Franciscan missionary, Fr. Junipero Serra, in the 18th century. The newly-appointed Novus Ordo pastor of the Mission, which is still in the control of Newchurch, announced the suppression of the "Motu" Mess there on December 8, 2012. Fortunately, most of the California Missions have been taken over by the State of California as historical sites. This has prevented Benedict-Ratzinger and his New Order sect from desecrating most of the Missions. In the Missions that the sect still control, Fr. Serra's traditional altars have been barbarously "re-engineered" and fronted by Novus Ordo dinner tables, which would have been considered by the good Fr. Serra to have been an unspeakable sacrilege and heresy.
In reality, the "Motu" Mess at the Mission was far from Catholic anyway. It was the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II Mess fabricated by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini and was celebrated at the mission not by ordained priests, but unordained Novus Ordo presbyters. What happened at San Buenaventura is what has happened around the world with these phony "Motu" Messes following Benedict-Ratzinger's "Motu" of 2007: when a new Novus Ordo pastor arrives, he cancels the Mass and makes the site completely Novus Ordo (as if it wasn't already!).
This Novus Ordo pastor also declared that he would suppress the "Motu" Holy Week at the Mission. When the Motarians at the Mission, most of whom are members of the pseudo-traditionalists Una Voce group, objected, the pastor simply told him that his word was law: "it is a fait accompli." The Novus Ordo pastor explained that he was tired of moving the historical appointments in the sanctuary out every Sunday so that he could simulate the invalid Novus Ordo service. The Una Voce Motarians at the Mission, instead of fighting back, have advised their membership to knuckle under to the invalid and barbarian New Order.
Good Catholics, the Motarians are deluded if they think Benedict-Ratzinger is a "traditionalist" and will save them. Ratzinger is the one who is behind the continuing destruction of the true Traditional Latin Mass celebrated by real priests. In addition, a recent study has shown that after a slight uptick in 2007, even the number of the phony "Latin Masses" in Newchurch is actually declining, not increasing. Josef "The Fox" Ratzinger has once again triumphed with his customary deceit over the clueless pseudo-traditionalists.
It seems that Benedict-Ratzinger's New Order sect may finally have given up playing games with the Neo-SSPX and has declared the last eight years of "negotiations" to have been "an unending and fruitless exchange." Traditional Catholics may heave a cautious sigh of relief, keeping in mind that Benedict "The Fox" Ratzinger always has another snare up his sleeve, just like the effeminate Herod, to whom Our Lord Jesus Christ applied this term.
Fellay, meanwhile, comes out of this eight-year fiasco battered and paranoid. His former senior bishop, Richard Williamson, has broken with him and his Neo-SSPX, and is now operating independently from him, serving independent traditional Catholic communities around the world and encouraging a budding new organization, the Society of St. Pius X of the Strict Observance, composed mostly of the more than one-sixth of the priests in the Neo-SSPX who have already broken with Fellay in order to maintain the founding traditional Catholic principles of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre. The group expects to open an anti-Fellayite traditional Catholic seminary later in 2013. Williamson has hinted that he may soon consecrate three new traditional Catholic bishops to counter Fellay's now anti-traditional Neo-SSPX: one in the United States, one in France, and one in Latin America.
On January 20, 2013, Newarchbishop Augustine DiNoia, who was appointed personally by Ratzinger as Vice President of the Ecclesia Dei Commission, supposedly to facilitate a sellout of the Neo-SSPX, threw up his hands and told the French Newchurch publication La Croix that Ratzinger's "negotiations" with Fellay and his Neo-SSPX has turned out to be an "unending and fruitless exchange."
DiNoia went on to admit that Ratzinger and his followers, from the time of the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965), had created "thirty years of suspicion and anguish." DiNoia called upon traditional Catholics to stop advocating the traditional Catholic Faith though the media. Such a call is a virtual admission that Ratzinger has been seriously battered by the criticism on the part of many committed traditional Catholics that he is a Modernist and may not even be a valid pope.
Meanwhile, the increasingly demented Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX, Bernie Fellay, refuses to charge Ratzinger as a major player in maintaining a New Order sect in opposition to the Catholic Church, but instead has recently claimed: The Jews did it! Fellay was immediately criticized by the New Order sect for being an "anti-Semite." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Religious News Service.]
In what has now become termed "Mahonygate," Newchurch cardinal Roger Mahony, who presided over paedophilia crimes in the Los Angeles, California, Newarchdiocese for 26 years (1985-2011), has now been exposed beyond any doubt as a paedophile pimp in thousands of pages of internal documents ordered made public by a Los Angeles court judge. In these documents it has been proven beyond a shadow of a doubt that Mahony and his lieutenants conspired to hide from police sex crimes, including rape and sodomy, perpetrated by their Novus Ordo presbyters against children, often in accordance with instructions from the "Paedophile" Pope Benedict-Ratzinger.
Included amongst the documents made public on January 21, 2013, by court order are memoranda by Mahony and his lieutenants that "offer the strongest evidence yet of a concerted effort by archdiocese officials to shield abusers from police." The documents reveal, in Mahony's own words, that he ordered his Novus Ordo staff to keep authorities from discovering that children were being raped with his complicity. The documents prove that Mahony plotted to conceal child rape by his presbyters from law enforcement, including running them in a "underground railroad" to Mexico to help them avoid prosecution.
It is clear now why Mahony fought tooth and nail for years to prevent these documents from being made public. In their thousands of pages, His Non-Eminence is revealed to be the Criminal in Chief. In spite of Mahony's protestations, a Superior Court judge ruled that the names of Mahony and his accomplices in child rape should not be blacked out, but revealed to the public for what these Newchurch leaders are: (as yet) unindicted criminals. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Los Angeles Times.]
Good Catholics, Mahony's actions were clearly criminal and should put His Non-Eminence behind bars for the rest of his life. His Unholiness, the "Paedophile" Pope Benedict-Ratzinger, who has been in full charge since 2001 of Newchurch's program of raping children, should be brought up on charges before the International Criminal Court in the Hague, for genocide against the world's children. Ratzinger's complicity in the rape of born children is morally far worse than the abortion of unborn children. On the failure of Newchurch and the U.S. judicial system to handle the matter, one anonymous aggrieved father understandably took justice into his own hands and beat the "Paedophile" Cardinal Maohony to a pulp a few years ago when Mahony was posting a letter in a mailbox at night. Too bad the aggrieved father didn't go to Newrome and do the same to the "Paedophile" Pope Ratzinger! Many children's lives may have been saved had he done so.
On January 18, 2013, Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch Canadian bishops officially declared Bernie Fellay, the Superior-Dicatator of the Neo-SSPX, a "schismatic." Fellay violated the Vatican II Council's decree, Nostra aetate, by calling the Jews "enemies of the Church." In this action the Canadian Newbishops were following Benedict-Ratzinger, who, through his spokesman, had called Fellay's statement "absolutely unacceptable, impossible."
Ironically, Fellay, who can no longer be termed a traditional Catholic bishop -- and maybe never has been -- has shown a desperate desire to become a member of the New Order sect himself and to bring his Neo-SSPX kicking and screaming along with him.
In his monthly Bulletin of January 19, 2013, independent traditional Catholic Bishop Richard Williamson gives a quite rational analysis of what has happened to the Neo-SSPX under Bernie Fellay. Williamson equates Fellay with a Novus Ordo pretender: "just as at Vatican II the Church's official leadership was obliged to pretend that it was not breaking with the Tridentine Church (such is, for instance, Benedict XVI's 'hermeneutic of continuity'), so the [Neo-]SSPX's official leadership is now obliged to pretend that it is not breaking with Archbishop Lefebvre."
Bishop Williamson states that what happened in the spring of 2012 is that "the mask came off, because the [Neo-]SSPX leadership must have calculated that the time had come for it to make its open move back into the mainstream Church." But Neo-SSPX members still loyal to Archbishop Lefebvre's founding traditional Catholic principles mustered "enough resistance to block at the [Neo-]SSPX General Chapter in July 2012 any immediate attempt to join the Newchurch."
Bishop Williamson warns that the Neo-SSPX leaders are surely waiting for the modern world, flesh, and devil to continue their work of pulling [Neo-]SSPX clergy and laity to the left so that within a few years at most there will no longer be any significant resistance, as there was last summer, to the [Neo-]SSPX rejoining the Newchurch." Bishop Williamson predicts that unless Fellay & Co. are thrown out, the Neo-SSPX "is doomed to be dissolved within the Newchurch." Williamson has apparently come to this insight only recently. The TRADITIO Fathers have been stating that case now for over a decade!
On January 3, 2013, yet another Novus Ordo perverted presbyter was arrested. The arrest was for drug-dealing in crystal methamphetamine. What the police couldn't arrest him on, because it is against God's law, not man's, was sodomy and transvestism. For some seven months after he was exposed, Newmonsignor Kevin Wallin was paid by his Newbishop, William Lori, of Bridgeport, Connecticut, a "stipend," with which Wallin bought a porn shop called "Land of Oz," which sells sex toys and X-rated DVDs. This pervert even conducted his nefarious activities in the Newchurch rectory. No condemnation, of course, has emanated from Benedict-Ratzinger. No condemnation against his Newclergy perverts ever does.
The Newmonsignor operated at the Newchurch cathedral under Newbishop Lori. Lori has previously been implicated in gross incompetence, if not complicity in embezzlement. His presbyter Michael Fay in 2006 embezzled 1,400,000 dollars of Newparish funds, while Newbishop Lori violated his own Newdiocesan policy by failing to audit the Newparish's finances for more than five years. It was the frustrated Newparish bookkeeper who turned the embezzler presbyter in. In 2007 Newbishop Lori's presbyter Michael Moynihan got away with 500,000 dollars of unaccounted funds, but Newbishop Lori was quick to declare his presbyter "a priest [sic] in good standing." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Hartford Courant.
If Newbishop Lori is not an actual accomplice in these crimes, he has got to be one of Benedict-Ratzinger's worst incompetents. Yet it seems that Ratzinger is not at all phased when one of his Newbishops oversees the theft of 2,000,000 dollars of Newchurch funds. He didn't fire Lori for incompetence, if not complicity in embezzlement. Apparently, Ratzinger has been making it up with his own notorious contract-fraud schemes!
On January 15, 2013, the Novus Ordo Congregation for Divine Worship and the Sacraments admitted that things were getting so bad at Novus Ordo Messes that it is preparing a booklet to help presbyters simulate the invalid Mess and to help Newchurchers "participate" better. The head of that Novus Ordo congregation, Newcardinal Antonio Canizares. admitted that Novus Ordo "seminaries" are a joke. He admitted that the invalid Novus Ordo Mess is merely an "entertainment," a "show."
Yet Newcardinal Llovares was quick to praise the Modernist Vatican II Council that corrupted the Mess, the Novus Ordo sacraments, and the seminaries. Llovares upheld Vatican II's insinuation of "inculturation" into the Mess, by the use of bare-breasted women, tom-toms, flamenco dances, and other pagan and secular practices into the Novus Ordo Mess, what Benedict-Ratzinger officially declared in 2007 to be the "Ordinary Rite" of the New Order sect. The "Unblessed" JPII-Wojtyla himself participated in many of these blasphemies. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Zenit.]
Newcardinal Canizares Llovera really put his foot in his mouth on January 15, 2013. The head of Benedict-Ratzinger's Congregation for [Novus Ordo] Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments stated to reporters in Newrome: "If Archbishop Lefebvre had seen the [Novus Ordo] Mass [sic] celebrated properly, he might not have broken off from the Church." Well, first of all we know that Archbishop Lefebvre never "broke off from the Church." In fact, he fought against its replacement by the unCatholic New Order sect.
But the real point is that Archbishop Lefebvre did see the Novus Ordo Mess celebrated properly. He, as a resident of Rome in 1968, would have been present at the experimental staging of the "New Mess" in that year by none other than the Chief Architect of the New Order "liturgy," Hannibal Bugnini, the Freemason presbyter, for critique by leading churchmen. Newcardinal Llovera was ignorant of that fact because he himself wasn't there. He had not even been installed as a presbyter yet. It was only in 1970 that he became a presbyter, installed under Bugnini's New Ordinal of 1969.
It was Bugnini's staging of the New Mess that shocked the Catholic cardinals and bishops witnessing it. It led directly to Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani and Alfredo Cardinal Bacci's issuance of their devastating Short Critical Study of the New Order of Mass, commonly called the "Ottaviani Intervention." The two cardinals and a "group of Roman theologians" authored the study and presented it to Paul VI-Montini on June 5, 1969. The cardinals told Montini that Bugnini's fabrication was little more than an invalid Protestant worship service. So embarrassed was Montini by having the covers stripped off his conspiracy with Bugnini to replace the Catholic Church with a New Order sect, that he ordered the Novus Ordo Missae recalled -- but then brought it back in a year, after the Cardinals' scathing criticisms had had time to cool. For further information, click on OTTAVIANI.TXT: Ottaviani Intervention: Short Critical Study of the New Order of Mass.
Lloveres then went on to admit that what Archbishop Lefebvre had said was true: that the Modernist Vatican II Council "offered more than simply changes; it offered a vision of the liturgy." In other words, the intent of Bugnini and Montini was not simply to make a few minor adjustments, as had happened in the past, but deliberately to replace the entire Roman Catholic Traditional Latin Mass with a Protestant substitute.
Llovera then went on to confirm Benedict-Ratzinger's demand that the Neo-SSPX must give "full recognition as a condition for full communion" to (1) the Second Vatican Council and (2) to the "magisteriums" of the popes after Pius XII. In this statement as well Llovera made another faux-paus because there is no "magisterium" (teaching office) in the plural. The Catholic Church does has never spoken of individual popes having a separate magisterium to be exercised at his whim. As dogmatically confirmed by Vatican I, there is only one magisterium, based upon Christ and His public revelation in Sacred Scripture (the Bible) and Sacred Tradition, which all popes are bound to follow. They are specifically prohibited -- dogmatically -- from making up things on their own.
In restating Benedict-Ratzinger's non-negotiable demands to Fellay & Co., Newcardinal Llovera confirmed what was stated in an "Advent 2012 Letter" to Fellay's Neo-SSPX by a subordinate official of the sub-commission "Ecclesia Dei," Newarchbishop Augustine DiNoia, who in his long, rambling, and sometimes incoherent letter concluded: "The only imaginable future for the Society lies along the path of full communion with the Holy See, with the acceptance of an unqualified profession of the faith in its fullness, and thus with a properly ordered ecclesial, sacramental, and pastoral life." In Vatican II Church-speak, that tells Fellay & Co.: Swear an oath to Vatican II or to Hell with you! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
A pseudo-traditionalist author has claimed: "It seems that part of [Benedict-Ratzinger], at least, wishes to reverse the Church's course over the past forty years." As evidence of this claim, the author states: "He has refused any longer to distribute communion in the hand at papal Masses [sic]." I wasn't aware of any such change on Ratzinger's part. Can you confirm whether the claim is accurate?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
The claim is patently false, as we have documented in several past Daily Commentaries. Ratzinger, as a good Vatican II Modernist "nuancer," mouths some words, but does not carry them out in action. In order to keep the clueless Neocon Newchurchers and pseudo-traditionalists coughing up money to support his fraudulent and immoral New Order sect, you can find a number of photographs of him continuing to dole out the invalid Novus Ordo cookie in the hand.
But who cares how the New Order people eat their bread? For that's all it remains: an invalid piece of bread. A Protestantized service, bathed in heresies about the Mass and about the priesthood, just like the Anglican service that Pope Leo XIII declared invalid for the same reasons, has no power to do anything other than deceive Newchurchers into the Protestant heresy. For further information, click on FAQ03: Should I Ever Attend the "New Mass" and "New Sacraments"?
Just imagine even that rare serious New Order sect girl who might have possibly considered becoming a Novus Ordo "nun." Such an advertisement as this would surely banish the thought from her mind! What kind of girl would such an advertisement attract. A clown! Yet this is what the Sisters of St. Francis in Wisconsin have been shoveling out in a desperate effort to save their dying Novus Ordo-ized order.
You would think that Newrome and its New Order followers would have learned by now that such ploys will not stop the declining membership in their sect's religious orders and worship service attendance. Only returning to the traditional Catholic Faith will reverse the decline.
Curiously, the footing on the page where this advertisement appeared described this order as "Traditional Roman Catholic Sisters." So, not only is the New Order sect phony, but it is now committing fraud against unsuspecting girls. This is the fraudulent institution that Benedict-Ratzinger has fabricated, which still deceives the clueless Novus Ordinarians.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
We here in Melbourne, Australia, are fully acquainted with the story of Australian Prior James Doran, whom Bernie Fellay has now essentially expelled from the Neo-SSPX for continuing to espouse Archbishop Lefebvre's traditional Catholic principles. Fr. Doran celebrated the Traditional Latin Mass most diligently and took his time in all things liturgical, ensuring great reverence amongst the community. He is an excellent preacher and has motivated many attendees to greater devotion through his teaching of the traditional Catholic Faith and its history.
Fr. Doran came here with his eyes open. He realized that Fellay was unable to maintain the loyalty of his clergy here and had in fact transferred in and out some twenty priests. Prior Doran thus understood that he would probably be ousted just like the others -- as in fact happened because he remained silent and would not become a full-throated sycophant to Fellay. Because Fr. Doran was well liked here, he posed a threat to Fellay, who is not liked. When Fellay visited here, he acted rudely toward our congregation.
Fellay had perpetuated a situation in which his congregation would participate in invalid Novus Ordo "reconciliations" and associate with Novus Ordo organizations like the Fraternity of St. Peter, unCatholic practices that Prior Doran was trying to turn around. Fellay had tried to implement a living arrangement at the Neo-SSPX school here that would have put students at grave risk, especially in these "paedophile" times. Fr Doran wrote a critique of this proposal and asked for action, but Fr. Doran was attacked by Fellay for pointing out the risk to the students.
Those in the United States being dunned by Fellay to contribute a replacement seminary in Virginia should take heed from our experience here. Fellay made promises to Fr. Doran concerning land acquisitions and development at the school, but later admitted that there were no funds and that the idea was, in effect, "pie in the sky."
In short, Bernie Fellay is about as popular amongst traditional Catholics here as the plague! Because of the high turnover of priests here, I wonder whether this is a symptom of Fellay's mismanagement of his Neo-SSPX or is whether it is a deliberate destabilization strategy on Fellay's part.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
After this report we received an update from another source in Australia that Fr. Doran has now left Fellay's Neo-SSPX to join the Novus Ordo sect at a Newchurch parish in Melbourne. If that is the case, we can conclude one or more of the following:
Ludwig Muller, Benedict-Ratzinger's personal appointee as prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith, has indicated that Ratzinger might consider admitting Lutheran Protestants into his New Order sect in an "ordinariate" arrangement such as the one he fabricated for the Anglican-Episcopalian Protestants. Muller stated that Newchurch might allow Lutherans to preserve their Protestant "traditions." The Lutherans in question would be those who "believe that the necessary reforms were completed by Vatican II." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
Desperate to vindicate its anti-free-speech policies, Chanceloress Angela Merkel's liberalist German government, through its administrative court in Regensberg, not coincidentally Benedict-Ratzinger's home region, went through the motions of a second kangaroo trial to convict independent traditional Catholic bishop Richard Williamson in absentia for daring to question in some brief remarks a detail on a disputed matter of secular history pertaining to the World War II "holocaust" in a 2008 Swedish Public Television interview.
Although the press frequently errs by calling Williamson a "holocaust-denier," Williamson has never denied the "holocaust" itself, but does question several details of the story that later secular Jews have constructed in contradiction to the story that contemporary Jewish leaders of the time, such as Prime Minister Golda Meir, told. Therefore, the current German government, headed by Angela Merkel, a Lutheran, who personally intervened to convict Williamson, can only be said to be conducting a pogrom against the 72-year-old traditional Catholic bishop.
In the first kangaroo trial, Williamson was falsely convicted of "racial incitement," but a German Appeals Court threw out the conviction as legally flawed, but allowed the German government to retry the case, if it wished. Merkel's desperate government did not hesitate to retry Williamson, and he was "convicted" on January 16, 2013, in the second kangaroo trial in absentia. At least Williamson doesn't have to pay an exorbitant fine for exercising his free speech. The original 15,000 U.S.-dollar fine was thrown out by Appeals Court. The new judgment was for only 2,400 dollars. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
Good Catholics, it is obvious that free speech does not exist in Angela Merkel's liberalist Germany, any more than it did under Adolph Hitler's Socialist Germany. Nor does the "Hypocrite Pope" Benedict-Ratzinger, who claims to uphold, a là the Modernist Vatican II Council, the civil liberties of the "human person," uttered one syllable in defense of Bishop Williamson's human right to free speech.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers
It does not surprise me that Bernie Fellay and his subordinate priest-presbyters are conducting a purge of all Neo-SSPX clergy, so that those who profess continued devotion to Archbishop Lefebvre's traditional Catholic principles, whether clergy or lay, are being viciously persecuted. In my own case, when I was in prayer before the Maundy Thursday ceremonies, one of Fellay's clergy rushed over to interrupt my prayer and shout before the congregation at me that I was a "public sinner" because I had questioned the strong-arm tactics being used to force SSPXers into accepting Benedict-Ratzinger's Novus Ordo-based "Motu" Mess of 1962+.
Like your other reader, Fellay & Co. denied me the Neo-SSPX's Communion, even though a decade ago I had made a major donation of property to Fellay's now-corrupt organization. But, thank the Lord, I am much happier now out of Fellay's Neo-SSPX. I pray the Traditional Latin Mass prayers at home on Sundays and Holydays and hope for the day when the Lord will send us an independent traditional Catholic priest not affiliated with Fellay's Neo-SSPX.
Perhaps Bishop Williamson could make a trip to India for that purpose. There are many here who now despise Fellay's now anti-traditional organization and would welcome a true bishop like Richard Williamson into our midst.
The TRADITIO Network has been informed that on January 15, 2013, Fr. Charles Mersereau, who served independent traditional Catholic communities in Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, and Newfoundland, passed away in Sackville, New Brunswick, at the age of 92. Fr. Mersereau had a great devotion to the Most Blessed Sacrament and the Canadian Martyrs. He offered the true Traditional Latin Mass, administered the true traditional Catholic Sacraments, and taught true traditional Catholic doctrine for many years to traditional Catholics in eastern Canada.
Evincing the charity that exists between traditional Catholic priests, Fr. Daniel Ahern, another independent traditional Catholic priest, traveled across Canada to bring Fr. Mersereau Holy Viaticum and the traditional Sacrament of Extreme Unction during Christmastide to strengthen him for his particular judgment. Fr. Mersereau, in the weakness of his final days, was still eager to pray and to kiss the feet of the crucifix. He was an example for traditional Catholics not only in eastern Canada, but throughout the world.
The New Order sect no longer has either the Holy Eucharist or the Sacrament of Extreme Unction, but substitutes for the latter (if it is even made available), a non-sacramental "blessing of the sick," performed by an unordained presbyter. As a result, those associated with the New Order sect go to their own particular judgment without being fortified by the Sacraments.
See how God looks after those who love Him: Fr. Mersereau was, in the end, fortified by the same traditional Sacraments that he labored all his life to administer to others. As Holy Scripture teaches us: "Eye hath not seen, nor ear heard; neither hath it entered into the heart of man, what things God hath prepared for them that love him" (1 Corinthians 2:9/DRV).
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
My wife has a friend who attends a Neo-SSPX chapel. Her friend mentioned that there are a number of individuals at her chapel who donate to Bishop Williamson. Because of their donations to him, Fellay and his subordinate clergy are now denying Communion to supporters of Bishop Williamson. I find this to be shocking, that a traditional Catholic would be denied Communion just because he supports a traditional Catholic bishop. Isn't it unjust to deny Communion for such a just reason?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Fellay and his Neo-SSPX just get worse and worse. Let's face it: there is no justice when it comes to the New Order and its (now) servant Bernie Fellay. The New Order has deprived its sectarians of the true sacraments, and now Fellay in his crazed tyranny is depriving even traditional Catholics of the Sacraments. Your friend and others in Fellay's Neo-SSPX are long overdue in getting out of his Novus Ordo-bent organization and into a traditional Catholic site. They should become full-throated supporters of traditional Catholicism and traditional priests, whether Williamson or the many other independent traditional priests offering the true traditional Mass and Sacraments.
The situation with Fellay and his Neo-SSPX will just get worse and worse. Now he has resorted to sacrilege against those who challenge him. But in a way, Fellay is right. If you don't agree with him (as it has become clear by now that a traditional Catholic should not), you have no business at his Novus Ordo-bent sites, more and more of which are now using Novus Ordo presbyters instead of priests.
In addition, it has also recently been reported that Fellay has sidelined Fr. James Doran because he was vocal against Fellay's proposed agreement to sell out to the New Order sect. Doran is not expelled yet, but has been, like Bishop Williamson and others, thrown out onto the street. Fr. Doran joins about 50 former Neo-SSPX priests who have been sidelined by Fellay or have publicly abandoned his association with the New Order sect.
Fr. Rene Trincado, a 46-year-old Chilean priest of Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX, has called for Fellay's resignation and has indicated that he will likely be joining the Society of St. Pius X of the Strict Observance, a group founded on August 10, 2012, by former PSSPX priests to operate independently of Fellay's Novus Ordo-leaning Neo-SSPX. Trincado, now resident in Argentina, has a law degree. Bishop Richard Williamson, now independent of Fellay's Neo-SSPX, is conducting an episcopal visit to South America, where he was once Rector of the SSPX's seminary at La Reja, Argentina, 40 kilometres outside of Buenos Aires.
Fr. Trincado opposes an agreement with Benedict-Ratzinger's New Order sect in what Archbishop Lefebvre termed "Modernist Rome." He has also objected to Fellay's ambiguous "new style" sellout diplomacy. Trincado states that Fellay's approach "will destroy" the Society without even an agreement having been signed. Trincado has, therefore, publicly called for the resignation of Bernie Fellay and for his replacement by someone who really wants to continue the war against Modernism.
Fr. Trincado's PSSPX District Superior issued an order forbidding him to communicate to others his support of Bishop Williamson. Trincado replied that the order was illegal and that he will continue to support Bishop Williamson publicly. He has already been threatened with expulsion by Fellay and his lieutenant, and is expected shortly to leave Fellay's PSSPX to join the SSPX of the Strict Observance.
Sources at St. Athanasius Church in Vienna, Virginia, site of the founding of the Society of St. Pius X of the Strict Observance, have hinted that Richard Williamson, the SSPX's former senior bishop, consecrated by Archbishop Lefebvre, will soon, perhaps within a matter of weeks, be consecrating new traditional Catholic bishops independent of Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX. The sources indicate that in addition to the United States, Bishop Williamson may shortly be consecrating bishops in Mexico and France. France has the largest population of Fellayites, but recently many of these have split from Fellay because of his desire to incorporate the Archbishop's once-traditional SSPX into Benedict-Ratzinger's New Order sect.
The Society of St. Pius X of the Strict Observance was founded on August 10, 2012, by Frs. Joseph Pfeiffer, Ronald Ringrose, Richard Voigt, David Hewko, and Francois Chazal, former SSPX priests or SSPX associates, who have rejected Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX, which wants to sell out to Benedict-Ratzinger's unCatholic New Order sect. They denounced the Neo-SSPX's Superior-Dictator Bernie Fellay as a traitor to the memory and mission of the SSPX founder, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre.
As the TRADITIO Network previously announced, Bishop Williamson during January 2013 is making an episcopal visitation of North America. Bishop Williamson is well known here, having been for many years the Rector of the SSPX's seminary at Winona, Minnesota, and publisher of its monthly Bulletin, in which he taught the principles of traditional Catholicism. It has not, however, been confirmed that Bishop Williamson will attend any meeting of the SSPX-SO at co-founder Fr. Ringrose's aptly-name St. Athanasius Church in Vienna, Virginia, at the end of January 2013, or that Bishop Williamson will perform the consecration of the SSPX-SO's elected leader, Fr. Joseph Pfeiffer.
This should put Fellay in an interesting position. If Benedict-Ratzinger and heresiarch Walter Muller, Ratzinger's personal appointee in 2012 as head of the Doctrine of the [Novus Ordo] Faith, re-excommunicate Bishop Williamson, what will happen to Fellay when he consecrates successors to perpetuate his Neo-SSPX clergy? Under the defective 1983 Novus Ordo Code of Canon Law, an automatic excommunication from the New Order sect for one would logically mean an automatic excommunication from the New Order sect for the other one in the same case, no?
It would seem logical for Bishop Williamson to name more than one successor bishop, just as Archbishop Lefebvre did. These three bishops would be independent, not members of one organization -- at least not yet. I would guess that Bishop Willilamson is providing for a host of independent groups, at least until the inevitable major split opens up in Fellay's Neo-SSPX. Should Fellay try to make a deal with Ratzinger and his New Order sect, I suspect that PSSPX Bishops Tissier de Mallerais and Alfonso Galarreta will decamp to join Bishop Williamson. I would not want to be in Fellay's dilemma right now. Fellay will now be put under pressure to make a deal with the German spider -- or perhaps Fellay will be given the excuse he needs to make a sellout deal, leaving the Neo-SSPX completely Novus Ordo.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Bernie Fellay must really be wringing his hands now about whether he has cut off his nose to spite his face. He has no further control over the SSPX's former senior bishop, Richard Williamson, consecrated by Archbishop Lefebvre, whom Fellay expelled from his Novus Ordo-leaning Neo-SSPX on October 4, 2012. The consecration of new independent traditional Catholic bishops would be a good move for Williamson. His consecrations could hardly be disputed as they would be coming through Archbishop Lefebvre. The new consecrations would also make clear to the world that Bishop Williamson is once and for all independent of Fellay's corrupt Novus Ordo-leaning knock-off of Archbishop Lefebvre's traditional Catholic organization.
Benedict-Ratzinger's personally-appointed barbarian Newbishop of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, announced that he would accept no other options: St. Nicholas Church, an historic Catholic church, was to be smashed to smithereens by the wrecking-ball. On January 10, 2013, David Zubic issued the decree in spite of the fact that preservationists in the Pittsburgh area had offered to fund the historic church as a museum. Ratzinger appointed Zubic in 2007 to do his dirty work.
In just days the traditional Catholic church became a pile of rubble at the behest of Benedict-Ratzinger's New Order barbarian sect. St. Nicholas is said to be the first Croatian Catholic Church in North America, built 112 years ago. The church, with its stunning traditional altar, rose window, and hand-carved wooden arches, was deemed eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places. The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation even redesigned its Route 28 highway project to avoid the historic church property.
Preservationists argued that Ratzinger's Newbishop Zubic was a flat-out liar when he claimed that the historic church had to be demolished because it was unsafe. This is a ploy that has been used on many occasions by barbarian Newbishops to attempt to justify perfectly sound traditional Catholic churches. Zubic refused to comment on the charges against him, but like a petty autocrat answered his Newparishioners by ordering in the wrecking ball. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Pittsburgh Post Gazette.]
Good Catholics, one former parishioner of St. Nicholas was quoted as saying: "I don't want anything to do with the Catholic Church any more, not after this." That parishioner was apparently ignorant of the fact that it was not the Catholic Church that destroyed the church, but Benedict-Ratzinger's unCatholic and barbarous New Order sect and his guauleiter Zubic that performed the destruction. One can only hope that this Newparishioner finds a true Catholic Church, a traditional Catholic Church not affiliated Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger and his Newbishop David "Attila" Zubik, whom he rightly condemns.
Barack Obama has canceled the benediction at his upcoming second inaugural ceremony that was scheduled to be given by Louie Giglio, an Atlanta, Georgia, pastor, because he once preached a sermon twenty years ago that correctly stated the Christian doctrine that homosexuals acts are sinful and that the "only way out of a homosexual lifestyle ... is through the healing power of Jesus." Giglio said: "We've got to say to the homosexuals the same thing that I say to you and that you would say to me ... It's not easy to change, but it's possible to change." Giglio is the founder of the Passion movement, which urges young Christians to make a passionate commitment to Christ.
Obama, on the other hand, requires a passionate commitment to male homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexualism, and transgenderism, which encourages people to mutate their God-given sexual organs. Obama's credo is that anyone who teaches at any time, to any degree, that homosexual behavior is a sin, is now to be cast out of his liberalist regime. According to Obama, Biblical Christianity is not to be tolerated. Obama's self-defined Christianity has many times been challenged in the past. He doesn't act like a Christian. For example, for a speech at the Newjesuit Georgetown University in May 2012, Obama ordered the name of Jesus to be covered over in the antique carved backdrop behind the lectern. Surveys indicate that a large number of Americans think that Obama is a Mohammedan.
In other words, Obama has disinvited a Christian pastor from delivering an inaugural prayer because that pastor believes and teaches Christian truth. Christians are now condemning Obama for instituting a new liberalist "Moral McCarthyism." Obama made it clear that he was persecuting Giglio specifically for his Christian morals, which, according to Obama, "don't reflect our desire to celebrate the strength and diversity of our country at this inaugural."
Good Catholics, Obama is an out-and-out bigot. He persecutes any Christian who accepts the authority of Sacred Scripture, accepts the moral consensus of the Saints, and accepts the Gospel of Christ. Clearly, Obama is either an apostate from the Christian religion that he claims to hold or is a closet Mohammedan. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the New York Times.]
Bernie Fellay, the Neo-SSPX's Superior-Dictator, obviously learned nothing from the Williamson affair and has now dumbly put his foot in his mouth with his "enemies of the Church" remark about the Jews. Didn't he just expel SSPX longtime senior bishop Richard Williamson for making a similar remark questioning a detail of the received story about a disputed point of secular history, the World War II "holocaust"? Benedict-Ratzinger, by all accounts, forced Fellay to expel Williamson because Ratzinger wanted to please his secular Jewish "oecumenical" brethren, who have great weight in his New Order sect. Fellay was only too happy to comply.
Actually, Fellay is beginning to sound more and more like a secular Jew himself these days. He is constantly whining about how misunderstood he is, how hated he is. Why is he so put upon? What did he ever do to deserve this attitude, even from his own clergy and members? Fellay is such a Narcissist that he has no clue about an answer and appears to have absolutely no ability to examine his own conscience.
It is instructive to see what Fellay's response was to those who upbraided him for his Jewish remark. His words at the conference were clear, but now, like a good Vatican II Modernist, he is attempting to spin the obvious meaning of his words. He sent out a press release on January 5, 2013 that his comment "was aimed at the leaders of Jewish organizations, and not the Jewish people." And that makes a difference? The Jewish people are the ones who recognize these leaders, just as Newchurchers recognize Benedict-Ratzinger as their Newpope. You can be sure that those Jewish people" and "Jewish leaders" are not going to be satisfied by Fellay's attempts to get himself out of his mess.
It should be clear by now to everyone that once a statement escapes from your lips, there is no taking it back. Ratzinger learned that "you can't take it back" when he called Mohammed "evil and inhuman." No amount of pussyfooting attempts to take back the remark worked, and his Mohammedan "oecumenical" brethren still view Ratzinger with suspicion. Just think of what Ratzinger has done to try to disabuse the world of the fact that he is the "Paedophile Pope," openly suborning and supporting the rape of children by his Newclergy. Ratzinger too has tried to play the "poor me" card, even though it was the children who were his rape victims, not Ratzinger!
Fellay ends his press release with his recent "poor me" attitude. He "denounces the repeated false accusations of anti-Semitism or hate speech made in an attempt to silence its message." What a hypocrite Fellay is! He repeatedly uses the same technique as the secular Jewish leaders by making false accusations against his own clergy and members, as well as any who upbraid him for not standing by bedrock traditional Catholic principles. Apparently, in Fellay's increasingly-deluded mind, "false accusations" work only one way: against him. He whines now, Why am I so misunderstood? He does not consider the old saying, "Where there's smoke, there's fire?" (If you don't understand that in French, Bernie, we can translate it into Latin for you.)
Good Catholics, I think that we are seeing the beginning of the end of Fellay. He is falling apart before our eyes. Like Benedict-Ratzinger, his deceits and tyranny are drawing him ever deeper into the quicksand. It may well be that he himself will be the next one expelled from the Neo-SSPX by his own members, just as the Romans on occasion took matters into their own hands and dumped corrupt popes into the Tiber!
Amidst the usual deceptive hoopla, Benedict-Ratzinger on September 19, 2010, visited St. Mary's Seminary at Oscott, where he met, all smiles, before the cameras with Novus Ordo seminarians during his British junket. When the cameras were turned off, however, Ratzinger stabbed the seminarians in the back.
These Novus Ordo seminarians recently requested of their Rector to have Ratzinger's "Motu" Mess performed there. You'd think that this would be a no-brainer, right? The Newpope of the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II "Motu" Mess of 1962+ is described in Ratzinger's Motu Proprio Summorum pontificum, as the "Extraordinary" Mess, a term never before used in the history of the Catholic Church, as the Mass is supposed to be the Mass. The seminarians didn't even ask to be trained in it, just to see it. Of course, anyone with a brain knows that Ratzinger's Motu is not worth the paper it's printed on. It's just a P.R. tool to keep Neocon Newchurchers and pseudo-traditionalists in the unCatholic New Order sect. And what happened next proves this fact. The rector denied the request.
The British Newbishops in February 2012 had decreed that the seminarians at Oscott should be trained only in the invalid full-blown Novus Ordo Mess of 1969, what Ratzinger, again using a term never before used in the history of the Catholic Church, calls the "Ordinary" Mess. The Newbishops and the Rector "made it clear that the Extraordinary Form was not to be celebrated here." Ratzinger held his last event at Oscott at the end of his visit to 2010 junket to Britain. That seminary has now been declared by his British Newchurch to be a "no-go area" for the "Extraordinary" Mess. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Telegraph.]
So, once again Ratzinger and his phony "Motu" are shown up for the frauds they are. Ratzinger has done nothing to correct the situation. He wants his invalid "Ordinary" Novus Ordo Mess to reign supreme. And the clueless Neocon Newchurchers and pseudo-traditionalists are once again hoist by their own petard.
It is clear that Benedict-Ratzinger is softening his Newchurch's stand toward homosexuality, in addition to paedophilia. Of course, he is too clever to come right out and announce a "doctrinal" change. Like a good Modernist, Ratzinger works behind the scenes to make the changes in practice so that can't be fingered as the "Gay Pope," just as he has already been fingered as the "Paedophile Pope." In 2009 Ratzinger personally appointed Vincent Nichols as Newarchbishop of Westminster, England, in spite of the fact that Nichols was known to have homophile tendencies.
On January 2, 2013, Nichols announced the termination of the "Gay Messes," simulated for six years in the Soho district of his Newarchdiocese, but then on January 7, 2013, he turned around and announced his support for the efforts of homosexual Newchurchers to "provide pastoral care for homosexual Catholics [sic]." He is going to meet personally with the "gay" organizers of the Messes and "offer them his support." Well, "Bishop" Vince, which is it? Are you for sodomy or not?
Moreover, the hypocritical Nichols is leaving intact the "Soho Masses [sic] Pastoral Council," which had organized the blasphemous and immoral Messes. Nichols has smoothed the way for the Council to relocate its "Gay Messes" to a different one of his Newparishes. The radical "gays" understand Nichols immoral message clearly, as their representative stated: "We are simply being moved, to a situation which in many respects offers far more opportunities." In fact, since Nichols gave away the Soho Church of the Assumption to Ratzinger's Novus Ordoized Anglican heretics, the "Gay Messes" are being relocated to the Church of the Immaculate Conception. The irony of that location could not be more vile.
Nichols and Ratzinger are two peas in a pod. That is why Ratzinger appointed Nichols. The two are open hypocrites, pretending to be in favor of Catholic morality, but in actuality undermining it in every way that they can. This is the way of the Vatican II Modernists: they won't confront you directly, as Martin Luther at least had the honesty to do. They will "nuance" away Catholic morality by implementing immoral programs behind the scenes. And all too many Neocon Newchurchers and pseudo-traditionalists will be played by Nichols and Ratzinger for the clueless people that they are. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
On January 7, 2013, the fat hit the pan as far as the "Paedophile Newpope" Benedict-Ratzinger and the "Paedophile Newcardinal" Roger Mahony are concerned. Both of these corrupt New Order leaders have worked ceaselessly to keep Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust under the covers -- both figuratively and literally.
But a Los Angeles, California, Superior Court judge has blown Ratzinger's and Mahony's cover to smithereens. She has ordered published to the public 30,000 pages of personnel files involving Benedict-Ratzinger, Mahoney, and their paedophile presbyers. She specifically refused to Ratzinger, Mahony, and other Newchurch officials the power to "redact," that is, to cover up, the names of Newchurch leaders involved in perpetrating or suborning the acts of Newchurch rapists of children. Ratzinger and Mahony wanted to black out the names of the criminal Newhierarchs involved. The court's order will expose to the public which of Ratzinger's Newchurch officials knew about rapist presbyters, how much they knew, and how they covered it up.
The Associated Press has indicated that the now-released personnel files will identify Newchurch presbyters and their leaders, including Roger Mahony, as paedophile criminals and cover-up artists. For years, Mahony has been accused by the parents of child victims of Newchurch bishops and presbyters of shuffling criminal presbyters amongst Newparishes and concealing their crimes from the police. Moreover, Roger Mahony has been accused, with much evidence now published, of running an "underground railroad" to get his worst paedophiles out of the country across the Mexican boarder.
The 30,000 pages of documents include letters and memoranda between Benedict-Ratzinger's top Newchurch officials and their attorneys, complaints from the child victims' parents, and direct correspondence with Ratzinger at Newvatican about criminal presbyters, in conspiring to cover up their crimes and keep a lid on Newpope complicity in the crimes out of the press.

Fr. Denis Fahey was a member of the Holy Ghost Congregation and a well-known author of the pre-Vatican II era, whose works, even today, are an inspiration for traditional Catholics all over the world. The main thrust behind his scholarly endeavors was to bring forth the Kingship of Christ in each and every land. A new article has added to the Fr. Denis Fahey Archive department, in which traditional author Patricius Anthony reviews Fr. Fahey's book on the social rights of Christ.
Since the 18th century, there has been a virtual mountain of literature written about man's rights, while the rights of His Creator have been largely ignored. Almighty God is due from every individual, family, organization, association, and political entity worship, praise, and honor. At one time, Western man understood this and constructed a magnificent civilization whose ethos reflected this belief and, in return, was rewarded with many graces. When a society deliberately refuses to acknowledge God's rights and mockingly rejects His law, it will be severely punished.
This is why the current apostasy, which includes the Conciliar Church, is all the more wicked. Western man was given the special privilege of spreading the Gospel and had Christ's Holy Church established in the Eternal City. Tragically, the day is coming when retribution for this apostasy will be exacted. For further information, click on Review of The Social Rights of Our Divine Lord Jesus Christ the King.
The St. John Schola for Gregorian Chant informs us that it has just issued Volume X, Feast of the Precious Blood, of live Gregorian chant recordings in its A Traditional Chapel Sings Gregorian Chant series. A traditional Catholic schola sings answers the peal of the call to prayer from the bell-tower to chant the Hour of Terce, followed by the chanting of the Angelus to the traditional eighteen strikes of the bells. Then follows the Asperges, or lustral sprinkling of the congregation with Holy Water, which takes place before the principal Mass on Sundays. After the Asperges, the Sung Mass begins.
The Hour of Terce of the Divine Office is the third Hour of the day, the one traditionally appointed to be chanted immediately before Holy Mass. The majority of this recording covers the Mass for the Feast of the Most Precious Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ. This feast, assigned to July 1, celebrates the redemptive power of the Blood of Christ shed upon the Cross for mankind. The Ordinary chants here are taken entirely from Mass VIII De Angelis of the Kyriale, supplemented by three traditional motets: one Gregorian, one by the sublime polyphonist Palestrina, and one by St. Thomas Aquinas. The ancient French melody Christus Vincit constitutes the recessional. The recording is 57 minutes long.
The beauty of the devotional images on the cover artwork of these CDs, designed by a leading traditional Catholic graphic artist, is stunning and makes owning the CDs a treasure for the cover images alone.
The St. John Schola series is highly recommended by the TRADITIO Network for its fidelity to the fuly Traditional Roman Liturgy and for its utility in training Gregorian scholae (chant choirs) in traditional churches, chapels, and oratories around the world. Free music sheets are available to accompany the recordings. For further information, click on the TRADITIO Network's Gregorian Chant department.
The Congregation of Mary, Immaculate Queen (CMRI), a traditional Catholic organization established in 1968 and now numbering sixty Traditional Latin Mass sites in North America, has informed the TRADITIO Network that on December 12, 2012, Bishop Mark Pivarunis ordained one priest and three deacons for the Congregation. 16 priests, some coming from as far away as Russia, Germany, and Australia, assisted at the Pontifical High Mass of ordination, celebrated in the pre-1962 fully Traditional Latin Rite in Omaha, Nebraska.
CMRI is one of several traditional Catholic organizations that ordain traditional priests. These organizations remain fully traditional, having no association with the New Order sect or with Fellay's Neo-SSPX sect, which leans toward joining the New Order.
On January 4, 2013, Bernie Fellay, the egocentric Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX, left Canada with enough egg on his face to make an omelet! In order to explain his failed sellout of Archbishop Lefebvre's former SSPX to Benedict-Ratzingers unCatholic New Order sect, Fellay claimed in a two-hour speech in New Hamburg, Ontario, that he was deceived by Ratzinger for seven years. The Neo-SSPX was never seriously going to be accepted into the New Order sect headed by "Fr." Ratzinger, Modernist leader of Vatican II.
The TRADITIO Network had warned Fellay of Ratzinger's malicious scheme from August 29, 2005, when he first sat down with Ratzinger and Newcardinal Dario Hoyos (subsequently ousted for complicity in the paedophilia cover-up) in what has since become known as the "Decapitation" Meeting (August 29 being the Feast of the Decapitation of St. John the Baptist).
Moreover, after having expelled the SSPX's senior bishop, Richard Williamson, for questioning certain details of the World War II "Holocaust" put out by the secular Jews -- Ratzinger, who wants to remain on the good side of the secular Jews for "oecumenical" reasons, couldn't permit that, and Fellay thus had to throw Williamson under the bus to please the New Order sect -- Fellay admitted in his Canadian speech that he now agrees with Williamson. Fellay called the Jews "enemies of the Church," a phrase that even Williamson has never used. After making such a fuss about Williamson's un-Vatican II "anti-Semitism," now Fellay himself becomes the Superior "Anti-Semite"!
Fellay now claims that he received "mixed messages from the Vatican for years over if and how the group might be brought back into full communion with the Church [sic]." In making that admission, Fellay demonstrates that he is culpably ignorant of history. Ratzinger, then chief negotiator for JPII-Wojtyla, pulled the same hoax on Archbishop Lefebvre in 1988. Lefebvre, unlike Fellay, was an experienced, sharp ecclesiastical leader who quickly sized up the situation, called Ratzinger "not a Catholic," and publicly broke off any contact with him and the Newchurch of the New Order. What Lefebvre quickly came to understand in a matter of weeks, it took Fellay seven years to figure out!
Benedict-Ratzinger in fact never gave up his Modernistic principles, but Fellay was too egotistical, to see that he was being played for a fool, as he has now admitted. Ratzinger always intended to hold Fellay to "the formal teaching of the [New Order] Church, including the teaching of the Second Vatican Council," says Fellay. Ratzinger always intended to require that Fellay and his Neo-SSPX "accept the Council as an integral part of Tradition and accept that the [invalid Novus Ordo] modern Mass is valid and licit." However much the pseudo-traditionalist Fellay wanted to sell out to Ratzinger, he could not accept that condition because his PSSPX members would certainly desert him if he went that far.
Good Catholics, Fellay has now admitted publicly that he is a hypocrite and a fraud. He has destroyed Archbishop Lefebvre's Society of St. Pius X. He is looking now just like Hannibal Bugnini, the chief architect of the New Order and the New Mess, a mole whose purpose was to destroy the organization that he was leading. From his own statements, Fellay has now admitted that Ratzinger played him for a fool. If Fool Fellay were an honorable man, he'd disappear -- now -- into the Swiss Alps, never to be heard from again, and let the Neo-SSPX become once again the traditional Catholic Society of St. Pius X that Archbishop Lefebvre originally established.
Benedict-Ratzinger is a master at covering up the most anti-Catholic notions with meaningless phrases. This was the mode of Novus Ordo deceit introduced at the Vatican II Council, at which he was the besuited "Fr." Ratzinger, a leader of the Modernists. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass became "the liturgy." The Sacrament of Penance became "reconciliation." The Novus Ordo Mess became the "Ordinary Rite." ("Have you gone to liturgy yet today, Jane? No, John, I haven't gone to reconciliation yet this year.")
One of the newest phrases, fabricated by Ratzinger, is the "hermeneutic of continuity" of Tradition. Probably most people don't have the foggiest idea what that phrase means, certainly not Bernie Fellay, the Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX. Hermeneutic comes from a Greek adjective meaning "interpretive." Ratzinger's idea is that you can interpret away the traditional meaning of Catholic belief in favor of some Modernistic "development of doctrine." Thus, the Traditional Latin Mass, which goes back to the early Church, is tolerable, but only on "extraordinary" occasions and only in its Modernized/Protestantized 1962 form. But it is the invalid Half Novus Ordo Vatican II Mess that is Ratzinger's self-proclaimed "Ordinary Rite," even in the Hindu pagan form pictured above, where a Newjesuit presbyter "dances" the Unholy Sacrifice of the Mess.
Bernie Fellay, the Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX, has indicated that he has no particular problem with Ratzinger's "hermeneutic of continuity," just as long as he is personally in charge of the pseudo-traditionalist wing of the New Order sect. Fellay has frequently embraced the ridiculous notion of accepting the Modernist Vatican II Council "in the light of Tradition" -- which is like accepting atheistic Communism in the light of capitalism!
Good Catholics, Fellay and his Neo-SSPX have essentially lost their traditional Catholicism. They maintain some of its externals, but according to former PSSPX Prior Basilio Meramo, Fellay is only five per cent away from accepting the Modernist package. Meanwhile, most of Fellay's PSSPX lemmings are still sitting in their deck-chairs on the Titanic, obliviously waiting for the crash of the iceberg. Yet more of them now are joining the PSSPX's former senior bishop Richard Williamson and some fifty former PSSPX priests who see Fellay's disastrous iceberg coming and are getting out of his imperiled organization -- now!
Newchurchers have been locked out of Newvatican museums, the Sistine chapel, souvenir shops, and other services unless they can cough up hard cash. Italy's central bank, the Bank of Italy, announced on January 3, 2013, that because Benedict-Ratzinger has refused to comply with banking standards and continues to deal in money-laundering with the Mafia, Newvatican credit-card and other electronic transactions have been cut off, effective January 1, 2013.
It seems that Ratzinger has been caught in yet another lie. In Newvatican propaganda issued just a few months ago, Ratzinger claimed that all the financial irregularities perpetrated by his bank had been corrected. Now it turns out that this statement was just as false as the one in which he claimed that his Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust has stopped, whereas recent studies indicate that even more crimes by his Newclergy against children are going on than before!
Irate Newchurchers and other tourists were heard to curse Ratzinger, as lines for tourist spots snaked all the way around Vatican City. Meanwhile Ratzinger and his spokesman remained mute, while his corruption and incompetence were featured on news programs around the world. In the summer of 2012, Ratzinger's bank failed a key European Union financial transparency test. Newvatican's money-laundering operation even goes by a deceitful name, the "Institute for Religious Works." Ratzinger has brought all this upon himself. He keeps telling the world in Encyclical Letters and speeches that it needs to be controlled by supra-national organizations. Now Ratzinger is just hoist by own petard!
Ratzinger's organization takes a huge cut out of entrance fees, souvenir shops, and even visits to religious sites. Already drowning in red ink, Newvatican's finances are going to take another big cut. Effective in 2013, the government of Italy has announced that Ratzinger will no longer get deductions for sites that, like restaurants and even brothels, Newvatican runs for income. Expect more Novus Ordo church closings. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated ress.]
Good Catholics, this latest scandal shows just how far the Benedict-Ratzinger Newpapacy has sunk. Even in the middle of World War II, the Fascist dictator of Italy, Benito Mussolini, was praised for keeping the trains running on time. It appears that Benedict-Ratzinger can't even keep the VISA cards operating!
You'll never read about this on Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX propaganda sites -- which will, of course, deny the facts as "rumor" or "false allegations" -- but in truth, just as we had predicted, because of Fellay's Novus Ordo-leaning, tyrannical dictatorship over Archbishop Lefebvre's once-traditional Catholic SSPX, an intranecine war has broken out within that organization.
In fact, what Fellay purports to rule is not the Archbishop's Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), but a new organization, first termed by us the Neo-SSPX (PSSPX), which rejects the Archbishop's traditional founding principles, but retains the original organization's name. We have seen this ploy before. The Newchurch of the New Order did the same thing after the Vatican II Council. It pretended to be -- and to this day still pretends to be -- the "Catholic Church," while rejecting virtually everything that is Catholic: in worship, in doctrine, and in morals.
This lesson of post-Vatican II perfidy appears to be the lesson that more and more Neo-SSPXers are taking to heart. As a result, they have formed an informal coalition called "The Resistance." They are getting out the anti-Fellay message out over the internet and in private discussions, kept secret from Fellay and his lieutenants, with members of local Neo-SSPX sites. The anti-Fellay Resistance arose originally because of Fellay's attempted sellout of Archbishop Lefebvre's once-traditional Catholic SSPX to Benedict-Ratzinger's unCatholic New Order sect, but even more so now it is because of Fellay's personal tyranny that more and more Neo-SSPXers, both lay and clergy, have begun to stand up against Fellay personally as members of The Resistance.
But The Resistance, which, at least for the time being, is working within the Neo-SSPX, if often in a clandestine fashion forced upon it by the threat of Fellay's heavy-handed retributions, is not the only resistance. There is a General Resistance -- from traditional Catholics who were never members of the Neo-SSPX or who were former members. This General Resistance includes the roughly 50 per cent of traditional Catholic priests who always remained independent of any group or formed smaller, more fraternal groups, based upon commitment to traditional Catholicism rather than to an all-powerful "superior."
This General Resistance now includes some fifty former Neo-SSPX priests whom Fellay has expelled from their positions for the "sin" of adhering to the traditional Catholic principles of Archbishop Lefebvre. Recent reports -- no, these are not "rumors" or "false allegations" -- indicate that the SSPX's original senior bishop, Richard Williamson, has joined this General Resistance. Williamson was expelled because he wouldn't kowtow to Fellay's dictatorship, although Fellay naturally trumped up other false justifications, like "disobedience," for public consumption.
What is even more remarkable is that Fellay's lieutenants have recently admitted the existence of The Resistance against Fellay. They are now in a last-ditch effort to save him as Superior-Dictator by force and intimidation. Compare the case of Archbishop Lefebvre, the founder of the Society of St. Pius X. He was a gentleman, a churchman of great skill under the papacy of Pope Pius XII, admired by all, even his enemies, for his courage, his faith, and his sincere commitment to traditional Catholicism. Bernie Fellay, on the other hand, had no pastoral experience and, as later events were to show, had a deficient commitment to traditional Catholicism. He was Lefebvre's bookkeeper, by all accounts a last-ditch pick for bishop, because the Swiss financiers of the Society pressed Lefebvre to name a Swiss bishop.
Recent reports -- no, these are not "rumors" or "false allegations" -- indicate that Fellay is now running scared, realizing that many of his his own laity and clergy have declared war on him. He has, therefore, fostered an PSSPX "anti-resistance" unit in an attempt to "out" anti-Fellayite members. In an open announcement dated January 2, 2013, this unit admitted that there is "organized resistance against Bishop Fellay."
Fellay's loyalists live in an alternate reality built by the Superior-Dictator's propaganda. To these Fellayite loyalists, Fellay is so innocent, so anti-Novus Ordo, so charitable, so pure as the driven snow, that any objection to his tyrannical rule over his Neo-SSPX has to be mere "rumors and false allegations." The problem is that virtually every one of these "rumors" and "false allegations" has checked out as factual!
Like many tyrants before him, Fellay is also a hypocrite. For years he dumped on the internet as diabolical. Now he himself has turned diabolical (by his own definition) and is using the internet to put out his own anti-Lefebvran propaganda. He wants to keep his members ignorant of what is going on in the PSSPX. When anyone publishes the truth about him and his designs, he denounces it as "rumors" or "false allegations." But as the old saying goes, "Where there is smoke, there is fire." If he could, Fellay would take autocratic control of all modes of communication within the Traditional Catholic Movement. Not too long ago, a similar technique was used by a tyrannical state that bordered his own native Switzerland.
Ironically, Fellay, in his efforts to suppress anti-Novus Ordo and pro-Lefebvre sentiment within his PSSPX, is becoming even more tyrannical and is causing more and more of his own members to come out against him. He has now imprisoned himself in a vicious cycle. Fellay's malice toward his own members and priests and, yes, even bishops, is chilling. No wonder so many of they are leaving (not that you'd ever know that from his PSSPX web site!) or were ousted. No wonder more and more of his PSSPX members are wondering: has this man lost his mind? Like the "Paedophile Pope," it is long past time for him to step down.
Good Catholics, if Fellay had been honest from the beginning, he would have called for an open discussion amongst his membership about how they wanted to be associated, if at all, to the New Order sect. An open discussion would have been healthy and would have given the leadership valuable input upon which to formulate policy. But Fellay didn't do that. Like Louis XVI, Fellay's motto is: "L'etat, c'est moi!" He arrogates to himself powers higher than the man whom he purports to recognize as pope, and, in some cases it seems, powers higher than Almighty God Himself! And damn you to Hell if you speak up against His Most Reverence. He will create non-existent "mortal sins" against you to try to scare you into silence.
St. Thomas More, when on trial for his life for standing for God rather than King Henry VIII, was confronted at his trial by a bought-off royal secretary, who attempted to use threats in order to get the Saint to deny the Faith. More replied: "They are terrors for children, Master Secretary, not for me!" Fellay is no leader, but a tyrant. And history shows clearly that tyrants fall victim to their own tyranny. Their own people depose them, but not until after they cause a great deal of pain for everyone.
Since we are traditional Roman Catholics, consider the case of the most famous Roman of them all. In 44 B.C., who was more powerful than Julius Caesar, the Roman dictator over the world? He had defeated the opposition militarily and then had taken power over the Roman senate and the Roman people. Yet on the Ides of March in that year, he was stabbed 23 times by Roman senators, most of whom he thought were his friends -- Et tu, Brute? -- and bled to death at the foot of the statue of his arch-enemy.
On January 1, 2013, died one of the first independent traditional Catholic bishops, Louis Vezelis, of the Order of Friars Minor, the Franciscans. Vezelis was 35 when the Vatican II Council ended in 1965. He was one of the first to reject the New Order that was constituted following that Council as illegitimate. At one time he had about eight missions. He published for his congregations a periodical titled The Seraph. On Christmas Eve 2011, Bishop Vezelis stated in a pastoral letter the traditional Catholic principles that still stand today against the unCatholic New Order sect:
We have been forced out of the churches built by our fathers and forefathers, not by any perversely proud choice, but by virtue of our sound conscience that cannot tolerate dogmatic error nor unsound discipline. In a time when we Catholics are constantly plagued with heretical ideas and urged to "respect" heretics and schismatics, there is hardly anyone with the courage to stand up for the unadulterated Faith.... [Secularist] doctrine feeds the Modernist anti-Church and, under the guise of religion, destroys religion itself. This disguised naturalism opposes itself in every way to the Christian religion as a supernatural institution and works with great zeal to exclude our sole Lord and Savior from the minds and memories of men, and from the life and moral acts of nations.
To be sure, Vezelis had his difficult side, but all too often traditional Catholics of the present day are ignorant of just how much courage those who founded the Traditional Catholic Movement had to exhibit. These pioneers of our movement are often deliberately ignored by pseudo-traditional Catholics and their Novus Ordo-leanign periodicals to kowtow to what Archbishop Lefebvre considered the unCatholic sect that he called "Modernist Rome." These pioneers were too honest to do that, men like:
Even today, the works of these pioneers bear reading and study. The traditional Catholic principles are timeless. No one who considers himself a traditional Catholic should be ignorant of them. For further information, click on FAQ05: What Traditional Catholic Resources Do You Recommend?
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Here in New Zealand Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX is already going Novus Ordo. I am sure that these Novus Ordo practices are spreading at Neo-SSPX sites around the world, so I document them here in order that Neo-SSPXers will not be deceived, but will wake up now, before Fellay makes them members of the New Order sect -- gradually, just as Catholics of the 1960s were deceived into the New Order gradually, and when they woke up, they were participating members of an heretical sect!
I wish to relate here my personal experiences of the sad deterioration of the Neo-SSPX here over the past three or four years, as the gullible and apathetic PSSPXers have been gradually brainwashed by their Modernist pastors to accept more and more the poison of the New Order sect. In general, Bernie Fellay's recent efforts to sell out to "Fr." Ratzinger's New Order sect lock, stock, and barrel makes it obvious that this was the desired culmination of a long-term, pre-planned agenda of the quislings within the Neo-SSPX generated from the very top, from Fellay himself.
Here are just a few examples of how the Neo-SSPX site here has become Novus Ordo-ized.
You Fathers have already reported on the Indian Newchurch "nun," Mary Micaela, who was sent by the Novus Ordo sect to infiltrate the Neo-SSPX's convent at Wanganui, New Zealand, having been delegated by the New Order's Congregation for Religious and Secular Institutes in Newrome to do so. The Neo-SSPX District Superior, Daniel Couture, was specifically charged by Fellay to admit the Novus Ordo nun.
Good Fathers, Fellay and his lieutenants here are desperate to keep PSSPX members in the dark about the truth of what is going on. If anyone raises his voice simply to tell the facts, he is denounced as a "gossip." But we know that Catholic Saints of the past have always had to face being denounced by false bishops, like Fellay, who have lost their Faith and have simply become "control freaks" for their personal ambitions. Fellay has now expelled from his Neo-SSPX some fifty good and respected priests, several of them here in the Asian Province, simply because they refuse to capitulate to Fellay's Novus Ordo and wish to remain traditional Catholics, continuing to follow the founding principles of Archbishop Lefebvre.
I would sum up the Neo-SSPX situation here in New Zealand as, for the moment only, having the brakes put on because of the pressure of a few members loyal to traditional Catholicism and Archbishop Lefebvre, who are fighting Fellay's Modernist Neo-SSPX. But I am afraid that all too many of our more lemming-like members are being brainwashed by Fellay and his lieutenants into a Novus Ordo mindset, so that they will capitulate to having a "side altar" in "Fr." Ratzinger's Novus Ordo sect. But the key is this: SSPXers loyal to Archbishop Lefebvre and his traditional Catholic founding principles must fight back against Fellay tooth and nail if they are going to save their sites from the monstrous Bernie Ratzinger!
Like so many Catholics these days who have "fallen away" from the Faith, the French poet Paul Claudel (1868-1955) had the benefit of having been raised in a devout family. Nevertheless, he had had been an unbeliever until the grace of God fell upon him in a special way. When Claudel was 18 years of age, he was drawn to the Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris on Christmas Day 1886.
There, listening to the choir singing traditional Latin Second Vespers of the Feast of the Nativity, Claudel was moved by the reverence of those at the altar. Claudel later wrote: "It was the most profound and grandiose poetry, enhanced by the most august gestures ever confided to human beings. I could not sufficiently satiate myself with the spectacle of the Mass." Like St. Paul on the road to Damascus, the grace of God converted Claudel on the spot. "In an instant my heart was touched, and I believed." From that point, and for the rest of his life, the poet remained a devout Catholic.
Yet Claudel's Catholic Faith was not free from test. As the Proverbs teach us: "For whom the Lord loveth, he chastiseth" (3:12/DRV). Many of the contemporary French poets whom the young Claudel idolized were anti-Catholic: nihilists, dadaists, and futurists. Under these circumstances it took a great deal of courage for Claudel to embrace Catholicism and conservative secular views. He became unpopular in many of the "in" circles of Paris -- but that did not stop the poet. Claudel rejected traditional meters in favor of long, luxuriant, unrhymed lines influenced by the Latin psalms of St. Jerome's Latin Vulgate. His language and imagery was lush and mystical. He used human love to convey with great power God's infinite love for humanity.
Good Catholics, those of you who are blessed at your Traditional Latin Mass site with a traditional Gregorian schola or choir to chant one or more of the Hours of the Divine Office or to chant High Mass have a treasure for which you should bend your knees every Sunday to thank almighty God. Who knows how many "fallen away" Catholics are brought back to the traditional Catholic Faith by this inspiration of almighty God? "For, amen, I say to you that many prophets and just men have desired to ... to hear the things that you hear, and have not heard them" (Matthew 13:17/DRV).
The EWTN Cable network was never Catholic to begin with, but at least when Mother Angelica was around, it tried to be -- at least a little bit. But just a little bit. It has consistently promoted the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini's invalid Protestant New Order Service of 1969, which the leader of the Modernist Vatican II Council, Josef Ratzinger, officially declared in 2007 as Newpope to be the "Ordinary Mess" of his Newchurch of the New Order. It figures.
Since Mother Angelica was booted out of the EWTN leadership position in March 2000, the EWTN network has turned openly anti-Catholic. It parades a coterie of presbyter hosts who are paedophiles, drug users, johns of prostitutes, fornicators -- yes, all this has been confirmed and published indisputably -- as well as hosts who are warmed-over Protestants, like Scott Hahn, whose purpose seems to be to slap a picture of Mary on his Protestant books and then pander them to a new audience of clueless Newchurchers.
Pope St. Pius X condemned Modernism as the combination of all heresies. The Modernists view every aspect of the once-Catholic Faith -- from "liturgy," to doctrine, to morality -- as subject to change and "updating" in keeping with "modern times." The Pope-Saint declared: "There is no part of Catholic truth from which the Modernist heretics hold their hand, none that the do not strive to corrupt." This is the heresy that EWTN now openly panders to clueless Newchurchers who falsely think it to be "Catholic."
The immoral and now openly anti-Catholic EWTN network was long ago exposed in a carefully-documented 2006 study entitled EWTN: A Network Gone Wrong: How the Eternal Word Television Network Is Contributing to the Spread of "Silent Apostasy" in the Roman Catholic Church. The title says it all! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
Who better than the Modernist Newpope JPII-Wojtyla to be the unCatholic New Order sect's first Unsaint? Newcardinal Kurt Koch, Benedict-Ratzinger's appointee as President of the New Order sect's Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, made it clear again on December 10, 2012, that Ratzinger's "Year of [the New Order] Faith" has at its center the false Vatican II heretical "doctrine" of "Oecumenism." Ironically, this is one of those Modernist Vatican II doctrines that the Neo-SSPX's Bernie Fellay seems to eager to embrace.
The Polish Catholic News Agency is reporting on a possible date of October 20, 2013, for the Novus Ordo con-anization of JPII-Wojtyla, to mark the conclusion of Benedict-Ratzinger's "Year of [the New Order] Faith" and the 35th anniversary of Wojtyla's election as Newpope. But Wojtyla still needs a second "miracle," because one phony "miracle," rejected by medical doctors, had already been rushed through for his Novus Ordo "beatification."
Ratzinger and his New Order sect seem to be Hell-bent on rushing Wojtyla's con-anization through before the full truth about this corrupt Newpope, who personally participated in pagan religious ceremonies, fostered heretical doctrine, and perpetuated as the "Pre-Paedophile Pope" the sodomy and rape of children by his Newbishops and presbyters, can be properly researched and made publicly known.
There is no denying the fact that not only by word but also by act, JPII-Wojtyla promoted the heretical Vatican II doctrine of "Oecumenism," the notion that "we all worship the same god" and that "all gods are equal." In the New Order sect, heretics, schismatics, and infidels are not supposed to convert to the Catholic Faith. That is considered unnecessary and gauche. As Newpope, Wojtyla set the "Oecumenical" example for the unCatholic Newchurchers on a multitude of public occasions:
- On May 4, 1980, he presided from a straw hut over an ordination ceremony and native Mess of people undulating to the rhythm of tom-toms, accompanied by accordions and guitars.
- In 1981, he sat on his throne while acrobatic performers, dressed in little more than a g-string, performed in the modernistic Hall of Paul VI at the Vatican.
- In February 1982, he presided over a "dance" Mess in Libreville.
- On December 11, 1983, he preached in a Lutheran church at Rome.
- On May 8, 1984, he presided over a Mess in Papua-New Guinea at which male and female dancers, nude from the waist up, danced; an aboriginal woman, also nude from the waist up, read the Epistle.
- In September 1984, he presided over a Mess at Yellow Knife, Canada, at which a pagan Indian chief invoked the Great Spirit and presented him at the Offertory with an eagle feather dipped in blood. He put aside his religious garb and dressed in an Indian costume.
- In 1985, he told 50,000 Moslems in Morocco: "We and you believe in the same God, the one God and the only God."
- In August 1985, he presided over "dance" Messes in Cameroon and Garoua.
- On August 8, 1985, he visited Togo and prayed in a "Sacred Forest" consecrated to the worship of pagan gods and participated in a pagan initiation ritual in a grove sacred to the pagan animists.
- In 1986, he presided over a Mess in Fiji at which the thurifer was an aboriginal dressed only in a loin-cloth; he is said to have witnessed there a pagan animal sacrifice.
- In February 2, 1986, he was marked with cow dung, the "Tilac," the sign of the adorers of the pagan goddess Shiva, by a Hindu priestess at Bombay. He was received in Delhi with a Hindu ritual called Arathi in 1986, but, on the contrary, when a Pakistani cricket team arrived in Delhi in 2007, they made it clear to their hosts that they could not accept Arathi, so they were given bouquets of flowers instead.
- On June 24, 1986, he sat with Grand Rabbi Elio Toaff in the sanctuary of the Jewish synagogue at Rome while the Jewish hymn, "Awaiting the Messiah," was sung. He stood there while the Jews, by that hymn, implicitly denied that Christ was the Messias.
- On October 27, 1986, he participated in an "oecumenical prayer meeting" at Assisi, Italy. At this meeting the Church of St. Peter, above the relics of the martyr Victorinus, who was killed in A.D. 400 bearing witness to his Catholic Faith, was given to the Buddhists, who placed a golden statue of Buddha on top of the tabernacle on the main Novus Ordo "table" together with a banner displaying the words "I go in for Buddha's law." The Dalai Lama sat with his back to the (putative) Blessed Sacrament removed to the side, and a statue of Our Lady of Fatima was denied entrance to the church (Il Giorno of October 28, 1986). At this meeting the Church of San Giorgio was given to the American Indians, who proceeded to introduce witch-doctors "shaking their enormous feathered head-cloth and invoking Manito, blessed men and women, by rubbing their heads and backs with a white-feathered fan," while Catholic religious and presbyters participated. Chickens were beheaded on the altar of St. Claire according to tribal rituals. Presbyters were "baptized" in the initiation rites of other religions, which amounts to explicit apostacy. JPII lined up with the representatives of all the religions in the sanctuary of the church of Santa Maria degli Angeli with olive branches in hand, to signify that peace does not come through Christ, but indiscriminately through all the founders of any credo whatsoever (Mohammed, Buddha, Confucius, Kali, Christ). (Il Messaggero of October 27, 1986)
- In 1989, he visited Norway and the Scandinavian nations and held an oecumenical service in the cathedral of Nidaros. (Vatican News Service VIS, of November 18, 2002)
- On January 9-10, 1993, he brought together Christian, Muslim, and Jewish leaders for another "oecumenical prayer meeting" to pray for an end to the war with the Mohammedan Bosnians.
- On February 4, 1993, he engaged in dialogues with the high priests and witch doctors of Voodoo.
- In 1994, he smeared the pitch from a native tree on his face instead of incensing the Novus Ordo "table" during a Novus Ordo "beatification" ceremony in Australia.
- In 1995, he approved the building of the first Mohammedan minaret in Rome.
- In 1995, he took part in the official Smoking Ceremony at Randwick Racecourse in Sydney, Australia.
- In December 1996, when the Protestant Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury, George Carey, and several of his brother Anglican bishops came to Rome, he gave Carey a gold pectoral cross, the same gift he offers to Novus Ordo archbishops on their ad limina visits. He offered silver pectoral crosses to the other Anglicans. According to Catholic theology, Anglican "bishops" aren't really bishops at all, and hence have no business sporting the symbols of the episcopal office. Even Novus Ordo Notre Dame theologian Richard McBrien has argued that Wojtyla could thereby be guilty of the canonical offense of falsifying the sacrament of Holy Orders by complicity in the fiction that the Anglicans really are bishops, an excommunicable offense.
- September 27, 1997, on the occasion of the "Eucharistic" Congress in Bologna in preparation for the New Millennium, he had a special on-stage seat for a rock concert given before 250,000 spectators by rock star Bob Dylan. After he commented positively on the rock music and the junk culture represented by the concert.
- On April 6, 1997, he omitted the Filioque from the Credo on the occasion of the 1700th anniversary of the Constantinople I Council and on oecumenical occasions. (Eastern Catholic Life)
- In 1998, he gave communion, at a private Mass in the Vatican, to the late Rev. Sheila Brown, who had only shortly before been ordained an Protestant Anglican priestess and who, at that Mass, wore her "Roman" collar.
- On November 23, 1998, he shared the Novus Ordo "table" of St. Peter's with bare-chested, bare-footed tribesmen from Oceania holding spears, "searching for new impulses." (Associated Press)
- In 1999, he gave "communion" to several Lutheran bishops who were his guests during a Mess in the Newpapal private chapel in Newvatican. (London Tablet)
- On June 1, 1999, at the end of an audience, he bowed to the Mohammedan "holy book," the infidel Koran, presented to him by the delegation, and he kissed it as a sign of respect. The photo of that gesture has been shown repeatedly on Iraqi television. (June 4, 1999, Fides - Vatican News Service of the Congregation for the Evangelization of Peoples)
- On January 18, 2000, he allowed the Protestant Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury, George Carey, and the schismatic Eastern Orthodox Metropolitan Athanasius to participate in their official capacities at the opening of the Holy Door during the 2000 Holy Year.
- On January 24, 2002, he hosted yet another "oecumenical prayer meeting" at Assisi for "peace." This time the leaders included not just the usual Eastern Orthodox, Protestants, and Jews, but also leaders of "Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism, Shintoism, Jianism, Confucianism, Sikhism, Zoroastrianism, and followers of Tenrikyo and African tribal religions." (Associated Press)
- In August 2002, during the "inculturated liturgy" at the Novus Ordo beatification of Juan Bautista and Jacinto de los Angeles, he allowed an Indian woman to approach him in the sanctuary and rub him down with smoked herbs that are supposed to purify the subject and exorcise "evil spirits."
- On October 6, 2002, schismatic Patriarch Teoctist of the schismatic Romanian Orthodox church arrived in Rome for the start of a weeklong visit. At a Novus Ordo service on that day, he embraced Teoctist "in brotherly fashion" before a crowd of 200,000 and ensured that Teoctist was seated in an exact duplicate of the papal throne. That was not the behavior of someone who believed in his own "papal primacy." In fact, all the week's choreography seemed designed to make the two prelates seem like equally eminent heads of churches.
- On February 23, 2002, he gave "communion" at a private Mess in Newvatican, to the Protestant Anglican prime minister of Britain, Tony Blair.
JPII-Wojtyla's Modernist Revolution continues on, now under his protégé, the Modernist leader "Fr." Ratzinger of Vatican II. Ratzinger is shrewder than his mentor, though; he covers over the Modernist heresy with enough "smells and bells" and Latin to cuckold conservatives and pseudo-traditionalists, who are about the only people left who pay him any attention at all.
Ratzinger also talks about the "hermeneutic of continuity," which is Vatican II-speak, which is supposed to mean, through the use of terms that no one understands, that Newchurch and the traditional Roman Catholic Church are one and the same thing. Anyone with eyes to see and ears to hear knows that the Newchurch of the New Order and the real Catholic Church are certainly not one and the same thing. Yet even Bernie Fellay is willing to accept this deceptive nonsense.
In the New Order sect, people are no longer supposed to search for God's True Faith, but for "unity," a concept that Ratzinger may have imbibed during his service in the Youth Corps under the German dictator, Adolf Hitler.
