So badly has Newchurch's reputation sunk that its presbyters were banned from the scene of the Boston Marathon Bombing on April 15, 2013. As dozens of Newchurch victims were sprawled across Boylston Street, many of them in danger of death, Newchurch presbyters on the scene were turned away. Firemen and police officers were welcome, but New Order presbyters were not.
You see, Boston is still reeling from Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, which was first exposed there in 2002. Since then about half the Newchurch temples in Boston have been closed, and Newchurch's influence is a fraction of what it used to be in this once Catholic city. Novus Ordo presbyters are no longer considered "emergency responders." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Wall Street Journal.]
As a matter of fact, there is nothing Novus Ordo presbyters can do anyway. After the Modernist Vatican II Council, Newchurch repealed the Sacrament of Extreme Unction, commonly called the "Last Rites," which prepared the dying soul for its judgment and offered it many special graces. The New Order sect repeals the Sacrament -- as if such a thing were possible -- and morphed it into a mere "blessing of the sick." The New Order doesn't like to talk about three of the Four Last Things: death, judgment, and hell. They essentially repealed these as well.
When Boston was traditionally Catholic, true priests were admitted anywhere. Now the New Order presbyters are unwelcome. Now Boston police are reportedly even "hostile" to presbyters. At the bombing, they relegated presbyters to a nearby church, where they "set up a table with water and oranges and bananas." They were told to "stay out of the way" and just give people something to eat. This is the natural consequence of the New Order sect, which is not a religion, but a mere social program.
The New Order sect members have paid the price for their faithlessness to the true Catholicism. They can no longer receive the Last Rites. They go to their judgment naked, unfortified by the Sacraments of the Church, which they themselves have rejected. "Be not deceived: God is not mocked" (Galatians 6:7/DRV).
Tongues in Newrome are wagging about the "return" of former Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger around the end of April 2013, to Newvatican to live in his specially-built, luxurious new retirement villa in the Vatican Gardens. Many are wondering why, if the real Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio, could live since his election in the simpler accommodations of the Domus Santae Marthae built in 1966 as a guesthouse for visiting clergy and as temporary quarters used by the Newcardinals during a conclave, Ratzinger couldn't live in one of the apartments there. Ratzinger's conduct in this affair, and even his impending presence in Newrome, are disturbing even to many Newchurchers.
After the meeting between Bergoglio and Ratzinger at Castel Gandolfo on March 23, 2013, which Bergoglio had postponed for a full ten days, some speculated that Bergoglio wasn't particularly friendly toward Ratzinger. The remarks that Bergoglio made on April 16, 2013, in which he implied that Ratzinger fit into the category of a testardo [variously translated as jackass, hardhead, or mule] started speculation that Ratzinger might remain at the papal castle in Gandolfo, 12 kilometres from Rome, until his death, which some think may be only a matter of weeks or months away.
The Romans have criticized Bergoglio for staying in the Domus Sanctae Marthae guesthouse. They consider it unseemly for the Newpope to act as if he were merely a guest in Newrome. Some have wondered aloud whether Bergoglio has come yet to consider himself a Newpope, because he has stripped himself of most of the characteristics of that office. Moreover, he is the only Newpope to have been neither ordained as a priest nor consecrated as a bishop in the valid Catholic Sacrament of Holy Orders. (He was merely installed as a presbyter and Newbishop in the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini's invalid Protestantized New Ordinal of 1969.)` [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Vatican Radio.]
Timothy "Laughing Cow" Dolan, the New Order sect's U.S. President and Newcardinal of New York has once again displayed the unCatholic cowardice of the New Order sect and backed away from a legal fight with Barack Obama. On April 22, 2013, Dolan agreed to drop his subpoena for documents about the Obama's requirement of insurance coverage for contraception and abortion. Dolan had in February 2013 sent a subpoena to Obama in February demanding documents from White House staff, including Obama himself, for use in a Newchurch lawsuit against the contraception and abortion mandate.
The subpoena got Obama squirming. His "transparent" administration didn't want to fess up to its immoral polcies and asked a federal judge to toss out the subpoena on April 4, 2013. But, under suspicious circumstances, Dolan filed in U.S. District Court in Washington, D.C., a withdrawal of its subpoena. Dolan's filing failed to give any reason for the sudden turnaround. Dolan refused to comment. Obama refused to comment. Dolan just sold out, apparently under pressure from the immoral Obama administration.
In the past, when such immoral laws were imposed by the government, supported by many Newchurchers calling themselves "Catholics" in the U.S. Congress, like U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden and House Majority Leader Nancy Pelosi, "conscience exceptions" were provided for those who, on religious grounds, refused to prevent or kill children. Not Obama, however. His immorality crosses all religious lines! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
Good Catholics, what more could be expected from Newarchbishop Timothy Dolan, who was not even consecrated to episcopal Holy Orders, but was merely been installed as administrators under the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini's Protestantized, invalid New Ordinal of 1969? Dolan is one of those gutless wonders, as the common saying goes, who consistently fail to display the cardinal moral virtue of courage. As if any further proof were needed that the New Order sect is entirely bereft of Catholic sacraments, priests, and even bishops!
I think that St. Louis de Montfort in his work Traité de la vraie dévotion à la Sainte Vierge [Treatise on on True Devotion to the Blessed Virgin], has expressed exactly what you TRADITIO Fathers have been teaching about the proper role of the Blessed Virgin in subordination to Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Chapter 61. Jesus, our Savior, true God and true man must be the ultimate end of all our other devotions; otherwise they would be false and misleading. He is the Alpha and the Omega, the beginning and end of everything. "We labor," says St. Paul, "only to make all men perfect in Jesus Christ." For in Him alone dwells the entire fullness of the divinity and the complete fullness of grace, virtue and perfection. In Him alone we have been blessed with every spiritual blessing; He is the only Teacher from Whom we must learn; the only Lord on Whom we should depend; the only Head to Whom we should be united and the only Model that we should imitate. He is the only Physician Who can heal us; the only Shepherd Who can feed us; the only Way that can lead us; the only Truth that we can believe; the only Life that can animate us. He alone is everything to us, and He alone can satisfy all our desires. We are given no other name under Heaven by which we can be saved. God has laid no other foundation for our salvation, perfection, and glory than Jesus. Every edifice that is not built on that firm rock, is founded upon shifting sands and will certainly fall sooner or later. Every one of the faithful who is not united to Him is like a branch broken from the stem of the vine. It falls and withers and is fit only to be burnt. If we live in Jesus, and Jesus lives in us, we need not fear damnation. Neither Angels in heaven nor men on earth, nor Devils in hell, no creature whatever can harm us, for no creature can separate us from the love of God that is in Christ Jesus. Through Him, with Him, and in Him, we can do all things and render all honor and glory to the Father in the unity of the Holy Ghost; we can make ourselves perfect and be for our neighbor a fragrance of eternal life.
Chapter 62. If then we are establishing sound devotion to our Blessed Lady, it is only in order to establish devotion to Our Lord more perfectly, by providing a smooth but certain way of reaching Jesus Christ. If devotion to Our Lady distracted us from Our Lord, we would have to reject it as an illusion of the Devil.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
The dogma on Mary is beautifully expressed by the Saint. Our age needs to be most careful to ensure that Chapter 62 is understood properly in subordination to Chapter 61. We are not Marians or Fatimists; we are Christians! Devotion to Mary should never replace or take precedence over the worship of Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity.
Note that the Saint wisely titled his book not "Devotion to the Blessed Virgin," but "True Devotion," and in the Introduction to his work, he clearly indicates that many who think that they have devotion to the Blessed Virgin actually practice a false devotion. Our teaching here on the Blessed Virgin as subordinate to Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity, and that it is idolatry exhibited by those who treat the humble Virgin as a virtual goddess is Catholic dogma, which can be found in any traditional Catholic catechism.
That our teaching here is confirmed by one of the greatest devotees of the Holy Virgin on how her devotion should correctly be conducted, is further substantiation of the bedrock traditional Catholicism that we TRADITIO Fathers have taught here for some twenty years. It should be a wakeup call for those who consider themselves "Catholics" and yet have replaced the worship and adoration of Our Lord with that of Newfatima or some other pseudo-religion.
We would point out also that St. Louis was also a noted devotee of the Holy Angels. The Newfatimists, in their obsession with "end times," an obsession specifically condemned by Our Lord Jesus Christ (Acts 1:7/DRV), ignore the true message of Fatima, which began not with Mary at all, but with a Holy Angel, usually taken to be St. Michael, the Price of the Heavenly Host. The Angel's appearance put all of Fatima in its proper context by placing it within the central dogma of the Holy Eucharist, enshrined in the immemorial, valid Traditional Latin Mass. One of the children, Lucia dos Santos, reported as follows:
We got up again to see what was happening, and we saw the Angel again, who had in his left hand a Chalice over which was suspended a Host, from which some drops of Blood fell into the Chalice. Leaving the Chalice and the Host suspended in the air, he prostrated himself down to the earth near the children and repeated a prayer three times. Then, getting up, the Angel took the Chalice and Host. He gave Lucia the Sacred Host on the tongue. Then while giving the Precious Blood from the Chalice to Francisco and Jacinta, he said: "Eat and drink the Body and Blood of Jesus Christ, horribly outraged by ungrateful men. Make reparation for their crimes and console your God." Then, prostrating himself on the ground he repeated with the children three times the same prayer: Most Holy Trinity, etc., and disappeared.
The Fatimists should be the most outspoken and courageous of Catholics, completely and publicly rejecting the invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Novus Ordo Service of the unCatholic New Order Sect, based in the Modernist heresy, and demanding only the true Sacraments. But very few of the Fatimists do that. Instead, they pander scandalously to the New Order that Our Lady of La Salette had already condemned in 1846, or they sell out, in a devilish compromise, to the Half Novus Ordo service of 1962+, the so-called "Extraordinary Rite" of the New Order, which was engineered by the Freemason presybter Hannibal Bugnini. This deplorable spiritual condition of those who claim to be devotees of Mary show that they are actually not even Fatimists, but Newfatimists, constructing a false sect of their own based upon traditionally condemned New Order principles. Our Blessed Lady in Heaven would be the first to condemn these false devotees in the name of her Divine Son!
Francis-Bergoglio has cancelled the traditional annual stipend of 33,000 U.S. dollars to the five Newcardinals who help him oversee the Vatican Bank. Some press reports have spun this action as a matter of frugality, but is it in truth a matter of penury? A Vatican spokesman slipped at the press conference announcing the cancellation of the stipends and indicated that funds "weren't readily available" to pay them.
Under JPII-Wojtyla, and particularly under Benedict-Ratzinger, the Pope's Bank has used its official name, Instituto per Opera di Religione (Institute for Religious Works), to cover up the most despicable financial corruption. The European Union's financial arm and Italian banks have charged the Newpopes with running a money-laundering operation, even using Mafia connections. Things got so bad that Newvatican's ATM machines were cut off at the beginning of 2013, and for six weeks tourists had to fork over cash only to enter Newvatican museums.
Is Bergoglio hiding an impending financial collapse of Newvatican by spinning it as austerity? Although, as usual, Newvatican covers up the truth, the Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust has cut deeply into contributions to Peter's Pence, as Newchurchers have become outraged when they increasingly learn about Newpapal complicity in the sexual assault, rape, and sodomy of children. Investigations are currently going on by victims' groups to determine whether Bergoglio also covered up such crimes when he was Newcardinal-archbishop of Buenos Aires, Argentina.
Newarchbishop Vicenzo Paglia, President of Bergoglio's Council for the Family, revealed on April 21, 2013, that Bergoglio has "unblocked" the hold placed since 1990 by JPII-Wojtyla and Benedict-Ratzinger on the Novus Ordo beatification of Oscar Romero, and may even declare him a martyr. Romero is associated with Marxist "Liberation Theology," which is favored by the Newjesuits from whom Francis-Bergoglio hails and which is particularly powerful in Newchurch in Latin America.
Bergoglio apparently told Paglia the day before that the cause of the El Salvadoran Newjesuit would go forward. The "social and political martyr" was killed by anti-Marxists while he was simulating an invalid Novus Ordo Mess. Bergoglio is a fellow Latin American and fellow Newjesuit. The action indicates that Bergoglio is biased according to national affiliations and does not view himself as the head of a "Catholic" Church. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Reporter.]
In his April 20, 2013, Bulletin, independent traditional Catholic bishop, Richard Williamson, reported that on his three-week episcopal visitation to the countries of the western Atlantic, he saw increasing resistance to the Neo-SSPX Superior-Dictator Bernie Fellay and to his desire to collapse his Neo-SSPX "into the embrace of apostate Rome." Williamson ascribes the increased resistance to the fact that Fellay deliberately kept his members in the dark about his desired sellout to Newrome, but now those members are finding out "just how the true Catholic religion is being endangered."
Bishop Williamson reports visiting a Benedictine Monastery in northern Brazil, which has remained determinedly independent from Fellay and, in the United States, the states of Connecticut, New Jersey, and Minnesota, where the Society of St. Pius X of the Strict Observance, which has rejected Fellay and his Neo-SSPX, is growing by leaps and bounds. In Europe the St. Marcel Initiative, an independent foundation to support Archbishop Lefebvre's original traditional Catholic principles, is distributing funds to independent traditional sites around the world.
Bishop Williamson has announced his next episcopal visitation for Germany.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers
When was the Church first called "Catholic"? It seems to me I heard that it was early on, maybe the first or second century.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
The use of the term "Catholic" for the Church is first found in the Letter of St. Ignatius of Antioch to the Smyrnaeans, which was written about the year 110. St. Ignatius (not to be confused with the much-later founder of the Jesuits) was one of the Apostolic Fathers, who were taught directly by the Apostles themselves. Their works are considered only a little less authoritative than the New Testament.
The former President of the Pope's Council for Christian Unity has admitted the truth of what traditional Catholics have said all along, that the leaders of the Modernist Vatican II Council deceived the Church by hiding heretical "time-bombs" in conciliar documents. These time-bombs were hidden in the form of ambiguous language, sounding traditional in order to get the votes of the conservative bishops, but allowing an heretical interpretation once the Modernists, like the architect of the "New Liturgy," Hannibal Bugnini, took over the implementation of the Council's decrees.
Newcardinal Walter Kasper, himself a bishop Vatican II, made the admission in the April 12, 2013, issue of L'Osservatore Romano, the Newpapal newspaper. He wrote: "In many places, [the Council Fathers] had to find compromise formulae, in which, often, the positions of the [conservative] majority are located immediately next to those of the [Modernist] minority, designed to delimit them. Thus, the conciliar texts themselves have a huge potential for conflict, open the door to a selective reception in either direction."
Thus, Kasper was admitting what Michael Davies and other traditional historians have been writing since 1963. In fact, this was the thesis of Davies's 2003 book, Liturgical Time Bombs in Vatican II: The Destruction of the Catholic Faith through Changes in Catholic Worship. Kasper is saying that the Conciliar documents were intentionally constructed in such a way as to permit Modernist interpretations when put into the hands of radical Modernist theologians and bishops after the Council. Kasper admits that the conflict is inherent in the Conciliar texts themselves and not due to some later wrong interpretations of it, as Benedict-Ratzinger tried to argue with his false "hermeneutic of continuity" theory.
The Modernist minority at Vatican II surreptitiously undermined the dogmata of the truths taught by the traditional magisterium of the Church for 2000 years in such areas as:
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Francis-Bergoglio did not come out of the starting gate announcing that the goal of his New Order pontificate was to implement Vatican II, as did his predecessors, but claims that he wants to "implement the Gospel." Should we take any solace from that? Is .the Neo-SSPX's Bernie Fellay marginalizing himself, or speaking correctly when he charges that Bergoglio holds a "merely man-centered philanthropy"?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Maybe Bergoglio didn't proclaim his full-throated support of the Modernist Vatican II Council right out of the box, but he waited just a month to call those who had problems with a full implementation of Vatican II "jackasses," applying a vulgarity in Italian for traditional Catholics. In fact, this revelation of Bergoglio's true feelings occurred on April 16, 2013, during a Novus Ordo service that was supposed to be in honor of Benedict-Ratzinger. In effect, Bergoglio was calling Ratzinger a jackass too, because Ratzinger, though a Modernist himself, had expressed problems with at least some Modernisms of Vatican II.
Fellay has indeed turned his back on the traditional Catholic principles of his founder, Archbishop Lefebvre, has lost one-sixth of his clergy to date as a result, and has certainly shown himself to be more than ready to sell out to the worst of the New Order sect. This fact was confirmed by the release of Fellay's "Doctrinal Preamble," based on the principles of Modernism, as was previously detailed in these Daily Commentaries from the TRADITIO Fathers.
In the first open scandal of Francis-Bergoglio's Newpapacy, the sister of a Newjesuit presbyter charged Bergoglio, when he was Provincial Superior of the Newjesuits of Argentina, with complicity in the kidnapping of her brother in an egregious "human rights violation." On April 18, 2013, Graciela Yorio charged Bergoglio in open court with complicity in the kidnapping of her brother, Orlando, acting both before and after her brother and other Newjesuit presbyters were kidnapped and tortured by the military junta in 1976. Graciela charged that Bergoglio had "practically abandoned" her brother and the other presbyters whom he was supposed to protect. Graciela Yorio testified in a trial of defendants accused of human-rights violations.
There had already been several troubling reports out of Newchurch in Argentina that Bergoglio was associated with the murderous junta that took control of Argentina from 1976 to 1983. After Bergoglio was made Newchurch archbishop of Buenos Aires in 1978, there were persistent disturbing reports about his cooperation with the brutal military junta. There are also persistent reports that Bergoglio actively cooperated with the junta by turning over at least two of his presbyters, who were subsequently tortured by the junta. Some of Bergoglio's Argentinean associates have warned that the "humility spin" by Newchurch and secular propagandists about Bergoglio may be just a cover for seriously immoral actions. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Have you noticed that Francis-Bergoglio has brought back the "Bent Crucifix," which some claim has satantic associations? Could you explain the history of this crucifix?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Popes traditionally have used as their crosier, or ferula, a cross, not a crucifix. In contravention of this tradition, the Newpopes started using a rough-hewn staff fabricated by Lello Scorzelli in 1963 commissioned by Paul VI-Montini, unconventionally topped by a crucifix, which is not even a traditional crucifix. This untraditional papal crosier was used for the first time by John XXIII-Roncalli on December 8, 1965, at the official closing of the Second Vatican Council. JP I-Luciani, JPII-Wojtyla, and Benedict-Ratzinger all used it. In fact, Benedict-Ratzinger used it at his Newpapal "installation" on April 25, 2005 (Ratzinger was never crowned as Newpope).
Some claim that this crucifix is modeled after the "Bent Crucifix," or, as some call it, the "Twisted Serpent," which has satanic associations. It consists of a bent, or broken, crucifix with a distorted figure of the Christ. The traditional papal crosier, on the other hand, does not have a crucifix at all. Others maintain that the Scorzelli crosier follows a rough sketch made by St. John of the Cross from a vision. There is some resemblance, but the representation is different from the Saint's, and the perspective, which is the significant factor in St. John's representation, is entirely different.
The question, as always with post-Vatican II changes, is what is the significance of the change? Why all of a sudden would the post-cConciliar popes reject the traditional papal crosier representing their pastoral office, a symbol that goes back to Sacred Scripture and the earliest art found in Roman catacombs, to take up a symbol that has confused and scandalized many Catholics?
For further information, click on FAQ10: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Beliefs? in the section "Papal Crucifix."
Day by day, the world is learning just what Francis-Bergoglio stands for, and no way is it the Catholic and Apostolic Faith of Our Lord Jesus Christ. On April 16, 2013, Bergoglio publicly separated himself from his predecessor, Benedict-Ratzinger, who at least admitted that there were serious problems with the Second Vatican Council (1962-1965), on which the New Order sect is based. Francis appeared to blow off his Newpapal predecessor and all those who are trying to hold fast to the traditional Faith of Christ as testardi. Well, Our Lord Himself was called worse and, Himself never one to withhold criticism of those in error, even called Peter, the first pope, "Satan" (Matthew 16:23/DRV).
Bergoglio in his remarks slurred traditional Catholics with a nasty word in Italian, which has been softened out in English translations, using the weaker "stubborn" or "hardheaded." But that does not give the nasty sense of the word in Italian, which is based upon the Latin testudo, tortoise-shell. Changing the animal reference, "jackass" ("mule") would get more of the colloquial flavor of the Italian vulgarity that Bergoglio used. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Vatican News Service.]
The Modernist Vatican II Council Bergoglio calls "the beautiful work of the Holy Spirit." However, the Newpope who promulgated every single one of its sixteen documents, just seven years after the Council's end was describing that Council in these terms: "the smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God: it is doubt, uncertainty, questioning, dissatisfaction, confrontation.... We thought that after the Council a day of sunshine would have dawned for the history of the Church. What dawned, instead, was a day of clouds and storms, of darkness, of searching and uncertainties" (Paul VI, June 29, 1972, Sermon during the Mass for Sts. Peter & Paul, on the occasion of the ninth anniversary of his coronation).
Good Catholics, it seems that "Mr. Humble" is not humble when it comes to following Catholic and Apostolic teachings. He seems to make them up as he goes along. He blithely ignores the fact that his New Order sect is sinking. Attendance at his invalid Novus Ordo services are heading down to a mere ten per cent. Religious orders will be essentially dead within the decade. Ireland has shut down all Newchurch schools because of the Newpopes' support of their paedophile presbyters. In the United States, half the Newchurch schools have been closed in the last decade because Newchurchers won't contribute enough to support them. The Vatican Bank is under interdict because of its violation of the European Union's regulations agaainst money-laundering. Even Newvatican's ATM machines were cut off. It seems that "Mr. Humble" would better be termed "Mr. Clueless"!
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Is (Newpope) Francis-Bergoglio a validly ordained priest? Which rite was used in Bergoglio's ordination to the priesthood -- if, in fact, he was ordained to the priesthood -- the valid traditional Sacrament of two millennia, or the invalid New Order Protestantized "installation" rite of 1969?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
The Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini's fabricated "New Ordinal," based upon Protestant models, was promulgated nunc et in posterum on June 18, 1968, and was made mandatory on Easter Sunday, April 6, 1969. Bergoglio was ordained a New Order presbyter, not a Catholic priest, on December 13, 1969. Thus, Bergoglio appears to be the first non-priest to claim the Newpapacy, as Ratzinger was the first non-bishop to claim the Newpapacy.
Poor Bernie Fellay! The tyrannical flipflopper of the Neo-SSPX lately has reminded us of the lines in Dante's Inferno: "La buferal infernal, che mai non resta, voltando e percotendo li molesta" [the hellish storm, never resting, seizes and drives the spirits before it, smiting and whirling them about, it torments them]. Fellay, having schemed night and day to sell out Archbishop Lefebvre's traditional Catholic Society of St. Pius X to the New Order sect and to Josef Ratzinger, both of whom the Archbishop condemned as "not Catholic," and having played the base sycophant to Ratzinger in order to accomplish his personal ambitions, now has turned on the man whom he used to praise to the skies: Benedict-Ratzinger!
In a March 2013 Letter to "Friends and Benefactors," just published on April 15, 2013, Fellay proclaims: It wasn't my fault; it was Ratzinger's fault. Ratzinger "did not allow us to know precisely ... what he was ready to concede to us." Finally, on June 30, 2012, Ratzinger told us what he wanted all along: "total acceptance of the Second Vatican Council and of the Mass of Paul VI." After Fellay's persistent efforts to sell out the traditional Catholic principles of his Archbishop-Founder, Fellay in his latest letter "acknowledges the current relevance of the analysis by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, founder of our Society, which was unwavering in the decades following the Council, until his death. His very accurate insight, which is at the same time theological and practical, is still valid today, fifty years after the start of the Council."
That certainly wasn't the hymnbook from which Fellay was singing during the period of 2005 to 2013, after which Fellay's personal ambitions for Novus Ordo violet failed, and Ratzinger abdicated from the Newpapacy in disgrace. Fellay, always the devious propagandist, is now trying to "spin" his defeat and transmogrify himself as a loyalist to the Archbishop all along. Too little, too late, Bernie! Your Neo-SSPXers have had eight years now to catch on to your perfidious ploys. Even they can't remain clueless about your schemes indefinitely. Close to 100 Neo-SSPX priests, one in six, have left you, with only God knows how many of your NSSPXers, many issuing public condemnations of you as selling out the Archbishop's traditional Catholic principles, upon which the SSPX was originally founded.
If only you had listened to the sage advice of the TRADITIO Fathers in 2005 and avoided being cuckolded by Ratzinger and his New Order from the start. How much heartache you would have saved the Neo-SSPX clergy and members! How much money you would have saved the Neo-SSPX that could have been put into expanding traditional Catholicism around the world! But no, your personal ambition and tyrannical character would not let you listen to reason, so you are sinking, not admitting that the TRADITIO Fathers' sage advice was right all along.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Could you explain to me what the difference is between a bishop being consecrated in the traditional Catholic rite as opposed to being merely installed in the Novus rite?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
In the Catholic Church, for almost 2000 years, bishops have been consecrated in a rite going back to the early Church, contemporaneous with the immemorial Traditional Latin Mass. When the New Order sect took control in the Vatican II period of the 1960s, that sect in 1969 implemented a rite of "installation" based on Protestant exemplars, under which bishops were no longer consecrated in the valid, immemorial Catholic Sacramental rite, but were essentially "installed" unsacramentally as Presiding Presbyters over a Newdiocese. This Novus Ordo rite of "installation" of a bishop is invalid as a sacrament, as many theologians have pointed out. It creates essentially a Protestant bishop, like a Methodist or a Lutheran bishop, not a Catholic bishop.
Many Catholics are ignorant of the fact that the invalid New Order Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service of 1969 was accompanied in the same year by an equally unCatholic New Ordinal, under which men are no longer ordained as priests, but merely installed as presbyters and under which bishops are no longer consecrated, but merely installed as Newbishops, essentially as Presiding Presbyters of their Newdioceses. The Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini fabricated both the "New Mass" and the "New Ordinal."
We have seen this all before. The High Anglican Church remained Catholic and Apostolic for some time after Henry VIII's interference, but at some point, decreed Pope Leo XIII in his Bull Apostolicae Curae of 1896, lost the continuity of its Catholic and Apostolic Holy Orders and became invalid. This situation of the Anglicans at some point before 1896 was simply repeated by the New Order sect just after Vatican II (1962-1965).
For further information, click on CURAE: Apostolic Letter Apostolicae Curae [On the Nullity of Anglican Orders], Given by His Holiness Pope Leo XIII.
Now the New Order papacy has truly reached the height of the absurd! It was announced on April 12, 2013, that Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, the second in history who himself has been himself not been consecrated as a bishop, is going to "consecrate" his Newpapacy on May 13, 2013, to an apparition. It all fits. It is a matter of Catholic dogma that apparitions are not part of the Catholic and Apostolic Deposit of Faith. If they do not contradict that Faith, they may be believed, and people may have a private devotion to them, but they can teach nothing new, just as the papacy can teach nothing new. For further information, click on FAQ10: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Beliefs? in the section "Apparitions/Private Revelations/Visions."
So, here we have a Newpope awash in an invalid Mess and invalid sacraments, involved with false doctrine, and sunk into an unbelievable immorality, but rather than being Catholic and dedicating his papacy to Our Lord Jesus Christ and to His doctrine and teaching, undertaking to correct false worship, false doctrine, and false morality, Bergoglio will dedicate himself to an apparition. It all fits.
And the "Fatima" at and to which Bergoglio will consecrate his unconsecrated self will not even be the traditional shrine, but the New Order sect's new shrine, a pantheistic structure that looks more like a tennis racket than even a beautiful pagan Roman church. Newchurch in 2007 built this structure to replace the traditional Fatima shrine. It all fits.
We know that among the pseudo-traditionalists, there are those who would give "Fatima" the value of doctrine. That is heresy. They will praise the most Modernist of the Newpopes elected to date as somehow "Marian." We wonder, however, when Newchurch will return to its head, Who is Christ. Mary, after all, is not a goddess. To treat her as such or tantamount to such would be blasphemy. The Rosary, praiseworthy as it is, is worth less than one grain of sand on all the beaches of the world as compared to one valid Traditional Catholic Mass.
So why is it that these pseudo-traditionalists are so wrapped up in Fatima or Medjugorje or Garabandal or the image of the Virgin in a grilled-cheese sandwich? As Bishop Marcion put it so aptly 2000 years ago: Corruptio optimi pessima. Isn't that just how the Enemy works? Take something good, devotion to Mary, for example, and pervert to serve ends that Our Lady herself would condemn.
Good Catholics, why are these pseudo-traditionalists not single-mindedly focused upon getting Traditional Latin Masses and Sacraments and traditional Catholic priests all over the world? Is it possible that the Enemy is distracting them from what is central to Christ's true Faith onto some side road? That has already happened to Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX, but at least some one hundred of his priests have departed from him, refusing to be made by him instruments of the unCatholic New Order.
Following a suggestion made in the General Congregations of the Newcardinals that were held just before the recent Newpapal election in March 2013, Francis-Bergoglio has decided to create a new Super-curia or eight "Super-cardinals" to help him govern the (ungovernable) New Order sect. The Super-curia appears to parallel the Supra-national organization that Benedict-Ratzinger and Bergoglio have both advocated for the secular realm.
Many in this group of super-cardinals have been personally exposed as accomplices in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust and are under instigation for complicity in the subornation of child rape by their Newchurch presbyters. The president of the Super-curia, Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga, was named by a child victims' group as one of the "Dirty Dozen" Newcardinals. Details on individual super-cardinals' complicity may be searched in past Daily Commentaries. The Super-curia will first meet October 1-3, 2013, composed of the following members:
Good Catholics, we begin to see the outlines of Francis-Bergoglio's scheme. First of all, he chose to give no particular attention in his first month to the New Order sect clergy's continuing holocaust of assaulting, raping, and sodomizing children. He chose to stand pat with the half-hearted and ineffective policies of Benedict-Ratzinger. Now, as if to spit in the face of the violated children, Bergoglio has appointed a Super-curia of eight to govern the New Order sect with him, many of who have been personally implicated as accomplices and suborners of Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. And all of this cleverly covered over by a cynical propaganda campaign for "Mr. Humility," who is in reality the most egotistical Newpope yet!
Fr. Joseph Pfeiffer, the first elected head of the Society of St. Pius X of the Strict Observance (SSPX-SO), has announced his Pacific Tour to bring former Neo-SSPX priests and laypeople into the organization, which rejects Bernie Fellay's New Order-leaning Neo-SSPX and is founded instead upon the original traditional Catholic principles of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre. The tour will begin at the end of April 2013 and include at least Australia, India, and Singapore. Several other venues will be added as traditional Catholics in other countries request a visit.
In his press release of April 11, 2013, Fr. Pfeiffer notes "the deafening silence of the 'authorities' of the Neo-SSPX with regard to the Newpope Francis I." He quotes the Doctor of the Church, St. Bernard of Clairvaux, that a priest is a watchdog and that a dog is worthless if he does not bark. Pfeiffer charges that in Fellay's Neo-SSPX, "trust in the superiors of the NSSPX" has replaced study and knowledge of the Faith and the errors of Vatican II as well as the New Order abominations.
Fr. Pfeiffer has described the purpose of his Pacific Tour as twofold:
Fr. Pfeiffer has asked for complete transparency at each venue. Communications are to be open, and Mass locations are to be made publicly known. Pfeiffer acknowledges that Fellay has attempted to scare the NSSPXers with threats of reprisals. Pfeiffer has called Fellay's actions "Communist tactics."
The Society of St. Pius X of the Strict Observance has already set up its headquarters at Our Lady of Mount Carmel in the United States, with permanent resident priests. The SSPX-SO plans to start a traditional Catholic school and seminary at the headquarters and organs of communication. It was founded on August 10, 2012, by the Vienna Declaration, subscribed to by leading priests of the Neo-SSPX, who broke with Fellay's Novus Ordo-bent policies.
Residents of the Polish city of Czestochowa, Poland, will never be able to get the image of the First Paedophile Pope, JPII-Wojtyla, out of their sight. Instead, they will be towered over by the world's tallest statue of Wojtyla. On April 13, 2013, the 14-metre-high white fiberglass figure will be officially unveiled.
Propagandists for Wojtyla, who is known as the First Paedophile Pope, ignore the fact that he failed to take action against his Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters who assaulted, raped, and sodomized hundreds of thousands of children as young as two years old with cover-up support provided by that "Unblessed" Newpope. It was under Wojtyla that Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust burst into public attention, after the Boston Globe exposed Newardinal Bernard Law as an immoral facilitator of paedophilia in his Newarchdiocese of Boston, Massachusetts. Thence similar crimes were being perpetrated with impunity by Newclergy in virtually every country in the world.
In 2001 Wojtyla appointed the man who was to become the Second Paedophile Pope, Josef Ratzinger, as Sex Crimes Czar. Documents from that period, as well as from Ratzinger's Newpontificate 2005-2013, have indisputably proven that Wojtyla and Ratzinger conspired to allow their Newclergy to rape children with abandon and threatened with "excommunication" from their New Order sect any child victim or his parents who reported such crimes to the police. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
Good Catholics, the way the New Order sect propagandists override or simply ignore the truths of historical events is the Great Lie of the Post-modern era. Such propagandists are quick to deplore the likes of Adolph Hitler, but shamefully ignore the horrors of the First Paedophile Pope, JPII-Wojtyla, and the Second Paedophile Pope, Benedict-Ratzinger. Now the Third Paedophile Pope, Francis "Mr. Humility" Bergoglio, has indicated that he will carry on the paedophiliac tradition of his two precedessors.
The TRADITIO Fathers predicted in February 2013 only a 50-50 chance that ex-pope Josef Ratzinger would ever move into the sumptuous retirement villa on the grounds of the Vatican Gardens that he ordered built for himself before his abdication. Now Spain's second largest daily newspaper, El Mundo, has reported on April 10, 2013, that Ratzinger is suffering from "something very serious." He may not live until May 2013 when the villa is supposed to be completed.
Ratzinger's health is said to be "dramatically diminished over the last fifteen days." Ratzinger is said to be noticeably frail, has lost a significant amount of weight since moving to the Summer Papal Castle at Gandolfo at the end of February 2013, walks with increasing difficulty, has lost vision in one eye, has fluctuating blood pressure, and suffers from osteoarthritis in his right leg.
The German weekly news magazine Der Spiegel recently published an interview given by Leonardo Boff, a South American "theologian." The insights that it gives us into the Modernist extremism of the current Newpope are revealing.
Boff indicated that because the term "Liberation Theology," by which the Newjesuits became Communists and shot conservatives in South America, had become unpopular, the Argentinean Newchurch decided to call the same activities by a more benign term, "Church of the people." Bergoglio embraced that terminology while remaining tainted with a Socialist/Communist mentality in opposing "social injustice" and posing as "cardinal of the people." This same Liberalist mentality Bergoglio has carried into his Newpapacy.
Boff indicated that Bergoglio, who, like all Newcardinals, was forced to mouth their concurrence with conservative-leaning principles, was actually a Liberalist extremist, who could well work to change Newchurch's teachings on contraception, celibacy, deaconnesses/priestesses, and "gay marriage." Boff revealed that recently Bergoglio had explicitly permitted a homosexual couple to adopt a child. He had also remained in association with presbyters who were expelled from the New Order sect because they had gotten married.
In summary, Boff told Der Spiegel: "He is the pope now. He can do anything. You are in for a real surprise about what Francis will do. But this will require the breaking of traditions." It seems that an ultra-Modernist, Socialist/Communist is now firmly in control of the Newchurch of the New Order.
The hypocrisy is that on April 6, 2013, Bergoglio's Newjesuit leaders refused to recognize the Knights of Columbus as an official student group. Certainly we traditional Catholics realize that the Knights of Columbus is no longer Catholic. The TRADITIO Fathers have reported on the Knights' pro-abortion activities, for example, in previous Daily Commentaries. But the reason for the refusal of official recognition is revealing: the Knights are a men's organization. What is worse, you have to be a "Catholic," that is, a Newchurcher, to join.
You see, in Newchurch, it is perfectly acceptable to have a Lesbian organization for women only, but not an organization for men only. And you certainly can't limit membership in an official "Catholic" university group to "Catholics"! In this hypocritical policy, Newchurch is simply following the secular world where it is perfectly acceptable to have a Black Chamber of Commerce, but God strike you dead if you form a White Chamber of Commerce!
Good Catholics, Bergoglio's Newjesuits certainly have learned their immorality well. The Newjesuit Province centered in the Pacific Northwest of the United States filed for bankruptcy in 2009 because of the massive number of payoffs that had to be made to children sodomized by Newjesuit presbyters, more than those perpetrated by any other Newchurch religious order. Bergoglio certainly comes from depraved from post-Vatican II stock. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic Education Daily.]
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Is the Communion of the Faithful a part of the Mass or an interruption of the Mass? From my understanding of the Mass, there is only one Communion, which is that of the priest, because he consumes the oblation. So the Communion of the Faithful is an interruption of the Mass. The reason why I ask is that there is a certain individual who said the following to me: "While I readily agree that the Novus Ordo inappropriately elides the priest's [sic] and people's communion, I don't think the proposition 'the communion of the faithful is not part of the Mass' is a supportable opinion."
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Not only is your opinion supportable, it is Catholic doctrine. You are entirely correct; the individual is dead wrong. In fact, there is nothing in the bimillennial Traditional Latin Mass about the Communion of anyone other than the celebrating priest (not even other priests). That is the only thing necessary for the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, that the celebrating priest consume the oblation.
The rubrics indicate that Communion can be given before or after Mass, not just during Mass. That is the case because the Communion of anyone other than the celebrating priest is not a part of the Mass. Naturally, the Protestantizing Modernists wanted to augment the status of "the people." That is how such a heresy got into the mind of the individual in the first place.
Newchurch's own National Catholic Educational Association, in its 2012-2013 Annual Statistical Report on Schools, Enrollment, and Staffing in the United States, has clearly documented that the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965) and its Newbishops and Newpopes have been responsible for the virtual destruction of the once Catholic school system.
Since Vatican II, enrollment in Catholic schools -- which since that Council are no longer Catholic -- has plummeted from 5,200,000 students in primary and secondary schools to barely 2,000,000 -- a precipitous drop of over 60 per cent! 25 per cent of that drop has occurred in just the last 12 years. Since Vatican II, 13,000 schools have closed, more than half of all the schools that existed before Vatican II.
For an inferior education, which is not even Catholic, but New Order, clueless Newchurch parents are being bilked by the New Order sect to the tune of up to 10,000 dollars to be taught by uncertified lay teachers. 97 per cent of teachers in Newchurch schools are now laypeople, and three-fourths of these are women. You see, the New Order sect cannot attract new religious teachers. Young men and women won't devote their lives to a silly and unCatholic Newchurch.
Ironically, the worst order running schools is the Newjesuits, of which Francis-Bergoglio is a member. The Newjesuits are the religious order most criminally involved in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. When the Newcardinals elected Bergoglio, they were putting the fox in charge of the henhouse!
In fact, this precipitous drop in K-12 "Catholic" school enrollment is good news. Many fewer children are being subjected to the heretical teachings of the Newchurch of the New Order, which they are being falsely told is "Catholic." Even the perceptive Catholic educator Archbishop Fulton Sheen saw what had happened within just two years of the end of Vatican II. He wrote in 1967 about Catholic universities, but the same assessment applies to any grade level of Newchurch schools:
You are better off going to a state school where you will have the chance to fight for your Faith, than going to a modern Catholic university where you will have the new watered-down, modernist version of the Faith spoon-fed to your unsuspecting minds, so that you will be apt to lose your Faith.
Have financial woes finally forced Bernie Fellay and his Neo-SSPX to recognize that the TRADITIO Network was correct all along in denouncing the New Order sect and any association with it? The Fellay's U.S. District Superior-subdictator issued an April 2013 letter that was remarkable for two new revelations.
First of all, Arnaud Rostand in his letter uses the term "Motu" Mass, a term that heretofore only the TRADITIO Network has used. Of course, we use it here in as a term of derision, putting it in quotation-marks because of its illegitimacy; in fact, we call it a "Mess." This "Motu" Mess was mentioned in Benedict-Ratzinger's 2007 Motu Proprio Summorum pontificum, which allowed the "Mess of 1962+" to be performed in Novus Ordo temples, under strict restrictions. This "Mess of 1962+" was the version used at the Modernist Vatican II Council. It was engineered by the Freemason presbyter, Hannibal Bugnini, to be a kind of "Half Novus Ordo," to soften up Catholics for the introduction, just seven years later, of the full-blown, invalid Novus Ordo Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service. Who cares that the "Motu" Mess is in Latin? So is Bugnini's full-blown, invalid Novus Order Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service of 1969!
In 2007 Neo-SSPX's Superior-Dictator Bernie Fellay did not join the TRADITIO Fathers in deriding this "Motu" Mess for the hoax that it was. In fact, we called it the Great "Motu" Mess Hoax. To the contrary, Fellay welcomed Ratzinger's "Motu" with fulsome praise. But now he has had his subdictator join the TRADITIO Fathers -- without, of course, admitting that he was wrong in his efforts to sell out to the New Order sect -- by posing the question in the April 2013 letter: "Would you be walking a tightrope at a 'Motu' Mass, never knowing when the 'Spirit of Vatican II' might invade the sanctuary?" To be sure, Rostand's question in the letter is hypocritical, as Fellay/Rostand have implemented that deprecated "Mess of 1962+" in their own sanctuaries -- and have gone even further toward the Novus Ordo at some of their sites. This fact has been previously documented by our correspondents in previous Daily Commentaries. Has Fellay now been forced to pull back from his Novus Ordo principles, not on the basis of Catholic doctrine, but because of financial woes?
But what is even more revealing than Fellay/Rostand's new vacillation on the "Motu" Mess (aka the "Extraordinary" Mess in the New Order sect) is the fact that the April 2013 letter now openly duns Neo-SSPXers for operating funds for their local sites. We cannot recall a previous solicitation for operating funds for local NSSPX sites, only for special projects. We conclude the obvious: like New Order sect of which Fellay is so enamored, the Neo-SSPX must be in grave financial trouble.
Perhaps in Europe's desperate financial situation, Fellay's investments, overseen by his partner and investment advisor, the Dresden lawyer Maximilan Krah, a fund-raiser for Jewish causes, are not doing well. Krah's involvement with Fellay has already spurred a scandal within the Neo-SSPX known as "Krahgate." It may well be that the open revolt within the Neo-SSPX against Fellay's policies, which has led almost one in six priests to desert him or be expelled in just the last few months, has cut severely into NSSPX donations. Some of these roughly 100 priests and their supporters have formed a new organization, the Society of St. Pius X of the Strict Observance, based upon the original traditional Catholic principles of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre.
Good Catholics, Bernie Fellay, by his sellout policies, has washed away Archbishop Lefebvre's sound traditional Catholic foundation. The SSPX is no longer traditional Lefebvran, but a new organization, the Neo-SSPX, which is Fellayite. 100 of Fellay's priests have recognized this fact, along with many former NSSPXers. Fellay has created a sink hole, and eventually his whole organization will fall into a pit that he and his Fellayans have created.
Those who were thinking that Francis-Bergoglio was going to take up a new broom to sweep out the vile Newbishops and presbyters of his New Order sect who have been assaulting, raping, and sodomizing children with no letup, think again! On April 5, 2013, Bergoglio officially joined the ranks of the "Paedophile Popes," JPII-Wojtyla and Benedict-Ratzinger, when he told his Prefect for Doctrine, Gerhard Mueller, to continue the non-interventionist policies of Ratzinger.
Bergoglio did not condemn his sodomizing Newbishops and presbyters with excommunication or order that any Newchurcher knowing of a sodomizing Newclergyman should immediately report him to the civil authorities. Advocates for the violated children rightly dismissed Bergoglio's remarks as "empty rhetoric" and called into question his honesty for not having "discussed, much less adopted, even a single reform."
Bergoglio's pusillanimous attitude may reflect the fact that reports from his former Newarchdiocese of Buenos Aires, Argentina, indicate that Bergoglio there played the role of a tight cover-up artist. He refuses to make public the dossiers on his criminal presbyters. The same reports indicate that Bergoglio's Newseminary there was "out of control." It all fits. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Italian Catholic Federation's Bollettino.]
Good Catholics, Bergoglio is no different from his paedophile Newpope predecessors. He is just trying to cover up his complicity in crimes against children with a new mantra, "Mr. Humility," while showing himself as the most egotistical Newpope yet. Anyone who falls for his deceitful propaganda, after being deceived by Wojtyla and Ratzinger, should have his Faith examined!
Just as we TRADITIO Fathers had predicted, once awareness of Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust gained momentum, the New Order sect would finally face justice for its complicity in crimes against children. In just the last week, three governments have indicated action against Newchurch. In Australia, a Royal Commission will hear from no fewer than 5,000 child victims in an effort to punish Newchurch's crimes. In Ireland, the government is shutting down all Newchurch schools. In the United States, after the court-ordered release of 10,000 pages of documents proving that Roger "Rogue" Mahony and his Newarchdiocese of Los Angeles, California, had colluded with Benedict-Ratzinger to cover up hundreds of crimes against children and even to set up an "underground railroad" to get criminal presbyters across the border to Mexico before they could be prosecuted, a federal court in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, has now forced Newarchbishop Jerome Listecki to publish the personnel records of Newcardinal Timothy Dolan and Newarchbishop Rembert Weakland, inter alios.
In Australia, a Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, established by the Prime Minister, will hear "serious and shocking" charges from 5,000 child victims after a decade of growing pressure to investigate widespread allegations of paedophilia, primarily in Newchurch's orphanages, schools, churches, and Newparishes. Newcardinal George Pell already admitted that his New Order sect was responsible for hundreds of child rapes, which were criminally covered up.
In Ireland, the goverment is preparing to secularize Newchurch schools, taking control away from Francis-Bergoglio's paedophile Newchurch within the next six months. Newchurch bishops will be forced to release school buildings, originally entrusted to them by the government, within six months because those Newbishops have allowed the schools to become cesspools of crimes against children by Newbishops and presbyters.
In the United States, the Newarchdiocese of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, filed for bankruptcy in 2011. A U.S. federal court on April 4, 2013, forced Newarchbishop Jerome Listecki to make public 3,000 pages of documents detailing the handling of Newclergy's sex crimes against children dating back since just after the Modernist Vatican II Council changed the moral climate in Newchurch. These documents include personnel records on Newcardinal Timothy Dolan, the current President of the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops, who was recently subpoenaed to give testimony on his involvement in the child-crime holocaust, and on Newarchbishop Rembert Weakland, who stole half a million dollars from collection-plates to pay hush-money to his homosexual catamite. Both were former Newarchbishops in Milwaukee.
570 child victims are currently part of the federal case. Listecki forked over the documents not in the interest of justice for the child victims, but because the federal judge wouldn't allow him to proceed with the bankruptcy unless he did. Listecki still has to defend himself in court against charges that the Newarchdiocese fraudulently transferred millions of dollars off its books to deprive the child victims of due redress. Newchurch continues to display no contrition for its crimes. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Agence France-Presse, the BBC, and the Milwaukee Journal-Sentinal.]
Good Catholics, those who were looking for a sign that Bergoglio was going to root paedophilia out of his Newclergy were disappointed to hear not a single mention in three weeks. In fact, child victims' advocates have found evidence that paedophilia was rampant in Bergoglio's Newarchdiocese of Buenos Aires, Argentina, and that Bergoglio actively covered it up there.
Those who were looking for a sign that Francis-Bergoglio was going to root paedophilia out of his Newclergy were disappointed to hear nothing on the topic in three weeks, while "Call Me Jorge" found plenty of time to kiss the feet of women and infidels. In fact, child victims' advocates have found evidence that paedophilia was rampant in the Newarchdiocese of Buenos Aires, Argentina, and that Bergoglio actively covered it up.
Meanwhile, confirming that Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust continues unabated, Angel Perez, a presbyter of the Newarchdiocese of Portland, Oregon, pled guilty to charges of sexually assaulting a 12-year-old boy in August 2012, after plying him with alcohol and then, while drunk, driving him to his rectory to assault him. When he woke up, the boy ran out of the rectory and called for help from neighbors. Perez, in an effort to silence the boy, chased him down the street in his underwear. For his perversion, the presbyter, still "in good standing" and "in full communion" with Francis-Bergoglio's New Order sect, was sentenced by civil authorities to more than six years in prison.
Two other presbyters have previously been convicted of sex crimes in the Portland Newarchdiocese, where Benedict-Ratzinger's Prefect of Doctrine, William Levada, served as Newarchbishop from 1986 to 1995. Levada was under subpoena to testify as to his involvement in sex crimes against children until Ratzinger spirited him off to Newvatican with a diplomatic passport in order that he could not be forced to testify.
The current Newarchbishop of Portland, Alexander Sample, used Newchurcher's collection funds to help Perez cover his legal fees. Apparently, the amount was substantial because Sample was too embarrassed to reveal the amount. Sample, appointed by Ratzinger in January 2013 just before his abdication, was attacked at his first press conference for his support of sex criminals amongst the Newclergy in his previous Newdiocese of Marquette, Michigan. The most prominent child victims' rights group characterized him as "having done nothing to distinguish himself from the overwhelming majority of Catholic [sic] officials who continue to minimize and hide clergy abuse crimes."
Good Catholics, Newchurch has learned nothing in the last decade except how to protect its criminal Newclergy. Don't believe all the Newchurch propaganda to the contrary; it is a brazen lie. And Francis "Mr. Humble" Bergoglio has said not a word, no, not one word about the paedophilia that still rages full steam in the corrupt New Order sect that he now heads. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by The Oregonian.]
In just three weeks of his Newpapacy, Francis-Bergoglio has already shown himself so incompetent as Newpope that one wonders what the Newcardinals were snorting in the Sistine Chapel to come up with their "Dumb Ox" electee. Bergoglio has already shown himself incompetent in papal vesture and liturgical matters, all while displaying an appalling disdain for the public worship of God. Now we learn of more incompetencies: he can't chant, and he is linguistically challenged, even in the Church's official language.
If you love the authentic music of the Church, the Sacred Chant named after Pope Gregory the Great, who codified traditional Catholic music around the year 600, you won't be getting any chant from Francis-Bergolio. He's tone deaf and can't sing a note on key. The crowd in St. Peter's piazza on Easter Monday 2013 were surprised when he was unable to sing the Marian antiphon for Eastertide, the Regina Coeli, from the loggia. He merely recited it. Some of us can still remember the times when Pope John XXIII, with his booming baritone voice, would chant the Angelus, to which the people in the piazza, knowing their Latin, would respond, in Latin. Then Pope John, who had a touching devotion to the Holy Angels, would add the Angele Dei, the traditional prayer to the Holy Guardian Angel, which the crowd would recite with him, again in Latin.
The 2013 services of Holy Week, or what is left of them in their gutted Novus Ordo version, contain some of the most haunting Gregorian chant of the liturgical year. Under "Call Me Jorge," most of this chant was extirpated. Even the dramatic chanting of the Passions by three clerics, which led to the mediaeval Passion Plays and much great Western music, such as the Passions of the Great Bach, was reduced to a mere recitation in a vulgar tongue, Italian -- or was it Spanish? -- one can never tell because native speakers say that Argentinean Spanish sounds a lot like Italian.
Moreover, the previous Newpopes were fluent in the Sacred Languages: Latin invariably, and often Greek and Hebrew. They all spoke Italian and usually English, French, Spanish, Portuguese, and German as well. Bergoglio is uncomfortable with Latin, even liturgical Latin, and so frequently reverts to the vulgar Italian tongue. As for the world's vulgar lingua franca, English, he admits that he shuns it. "I don't have the ear for it," he has written.
In answer to frequent questions from the international press about Bergoglio's refusing to chant, his Newvatican press spokesman finally tried to justify it by the fact that Jesuits (Bergoglio is a Novus Ordo Jesuit) are not known for their singing or their interest in the public liturgy of the Catholic Church. They are more interested in intervening in secular politics, even to the extent of taking up arms in South America under the guise of Communist "Liberation Theology." It seems that Newchurchers will be hearing a lot more about secular politics with "Jorge" than they will be hearing Latin or Gregorian chant. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Service.]
More and more people are wondering whether Francis-Bergoglio is really a pope. He doesn't want to wear the papal vesture. He doesn't want to be called "pope," but has directed that the Newcardinals and his staff call him "Jorge." Now we find out that he doesn't like even the Novus Ordo Mess. "Mr. Humility" wants the worship of God slashed further. Anyone who has observed him at the televised services of Holy Week, the most sacred and holy week of the year, bringing true Catholics as close to Christ as they can come, Bergoglio has been caught on camera totally bored and looking at his watch as if he needed to hurry to catch the next train to perdition!
Bergoglio ordered the Easter Vigil Mess trimmed back by almost half. The Traditional Latin Holy Week Rites had already slashed in 1956 by "Fr." Ratzinger's friend at the Second Vatican Council, the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, chief architect of the Novus Ordo. Bergoglio didn't have time to worship God during Holy Week, but he had plenty of time to create a "press opportunity" by washing the feet of woman and infidels at a concocted "maundy" meant to spurn Tradition.
The twelve traditional prophecies chanted on Holy Saturday were slashed in 1956 to just four, and now Bergoglio has slashed them even further. He was also too impatient to deal with the candle lighting. Bergoglio's Newvatican propagandists claimed that slashing these most sacred rites of the entire Church year were justified by his desire "not to have his Masses [sic] go on too long."
Continuing his vulgarization of the New Order sect, the man doesn't even seem to know how to give the papal blessing. At the announcement of his election from the loggia of St. Peter's, Bergoglio didn't even seem to know how to impart the bishop's triple Sign of the Cross over the people. He is too inept to be comfortable giving speeches in the Church's official language, so usually dumbs down to vulgar Italian. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
Good Catholics, it has taken Bergoglio only two weeks to make sede-vacantists out of the Neo-SSPX's Bernie Fellay, the Motarians, the Neocon Newchurchers, and the pseudo-traditionalists, whether they want to admit it publicly or not. Two days after Bergoglio's election, they all retreated into silence. They know that their goose is cooked. Let's face it: Bergoglio -- or "Jorge," as he prefers to be called -- is looking more and more like a "dumb ox," with no papal "charism" whatsoever. Investigators in Buenos Aires are already finding that he will rank with JPII-Wojtyla and Benedict-Ratzinger as a "Paedophile Pope." Although his propaganda machine wants to make him out as "Mr. Humble," this man is so egotistical that he puts Narcissus to shame!
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I have information that in the Canon of the Mass at least some of Fellay's Neo-SSPX priest-presbyters are now praying for two "popes": Benedict-Ratzinger and Francis-Bergoglio. The Neo-SSPX's recognition of two "popes" was discovered on Good Friday 2013, when, in the litanical prayers following the chanting of the Passion according to St. John, the names of two "popes" were chanted.
This seems to be Fellay's latest gimmick. Bernie just couldn't stand to see his Modernist bosom buddy Ratzinger abdicate and still regards him as a "pope," but Fellay personal ambitions won't allow him to reject the outright Modernist Francis "Call Me Jorge" Bergoglio.
The Motarians, Neocon Newchurchers, and pseudo-traditionalists are devastated. They have quickly realized that Francis-Bergoglio is going to dismantle what little is left of Catholicism in the New Order sect. His latest slap in the face to those who sold out to Benedict-Ratzinger's phony Motu Proprio for the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II "Mess of 1962+," engineered by his friend at Vatican II, the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, was Begoglio's violating 2000 years of Catholic Tradition to wash the feet of two females and two infidels at the Holy Thursday maundy rite, which is supposed to represent Christ's washing of his twelve (male) Apostles' feet.
Newvatican's propaganda machine is defending Bergoglio's action as "absolutely licit." Yeah, sure. It does not take a brilliant intellect to see where Begoglio is going: softening up the New Order sect for the introduction of deaconnesses, and even priestesses.
Sources from Bergoglio's former Newarchdiocese of Buenos Aires, Argentina, have reported that Bergoglio spurned even the Half Novus Ordo "Motu" Mess there and described Bergoglio as a "horror" even for conservatives in the New Order sect. Not surprisingly, these same local sources indicate that under Bergoglio, the state of the Newclergy there is "dilapidated," and its seminary is a "disaster." More and more evidence is percolating to the public notice that Bergoglio himself was involved there in a cover-up of paedophile crimes on the part of his Newclergy. The line of New Order sect "Paedophile Popes" thus continues. Forget phony humility; let's have a little morality!
Bergoglio's latest Modernist abomination follows on his rejection of the papal mozzetta after his election was announced on the Newvatican loggia. He has also rejected the title "pope," instructing his Newcuria and staff to call him "Jorge." At the Good Friday Stations of the Cross in the Roman Colosseum, he called Mohammedan infidels "brothers and sisters." It is widely rumored that Bergoglio is about to fire the relatively-conservative Newmonsignor Guido Marini, the current Newpapal Master of Ceremonies, to appoint a thoroughly Modernist "Millie."

On Maundy Thursday, March 28, 2013, Bishop Richard Williamson, formerly senior bishop of the SSPX, who has gone independent from that organization, takes off the gloves in issuing an Open Letter to the Priests of the Society of St. Pius X, in which he essentially calls their Superior-Dictator, Bernie Fellay, a Modernist apostate, because Fellay has abandoned traditional Catholicism. Bishop Williamson's Open Letter was prompted by the exposure of the formerly secret "Doctrinal Preamble" that Fellay sent to Newvatican on April 15, 2012, in which Fellay sold out essentially every principle of traditional Catholicism fought for by the SSPX's Archbishop-Founder Archbishop Lefebvre until his death in 1991.
The Doctrinal Preamble is the final proof that Fellay, without reservation, sold out to the heretical Modernism of the Second Vatican Council. Bishop Williamson's severe criticism of Fellay's sellout to heretical New Order Modernism reflects the analysis previously given by the TRADITIO Fathers when Fellay's Preamble, which was supposed to remain secret, was first made public. Now we know why Fellay didn't want his Preamble to become public, for in its secrecy he could still pretend to be traditional Catholic!
Bishop Williamson concludes from the Preamble that Fellay has "given up the Archbishop's fight for Tradition" and has "gone over" in his mind to Vatican II. Williamson charges that Fellay's Preamble is "the poisoned fruit of what has become a liberal mindset at the top of the Society." Williamson calls Fellay a "blind leader," who is a "punishment from God." He pleads with Neo-SSPX priests to study Fellay's Preamble for themselves and, "having made the disaster clear in your own mind, you must tell the truth to your Society flock, namely the danger in which your Superiors are placing their faith and therewith their eternal salvation."
Good Catholics, we TRADITIO Fathers applaud Bishop Williamson for finally telling the reality about the Fellay, now undeniably exposed in his own words as a traitor to traditional Catholicism, to the Neo-SSPXers in no uncertain terms. Within the Neo-SSPX, there are far more who still regard Bishop Williamson as the true representative of Archbishop Lefebvre rather than Bernie "Judas" Fellay. We only wish that Williamson had stood up to Fellay long ago, with Bishops Galarreta and Tissier, before Fellay's perfidy had taken organizational control of the Neo-SSPX.
