The official statistics for Newchurch in England and Wales are in, and they are not pretty. The Faith Survey released on June 26, 2013, shows clearly that the Modernist Vatican II Council has been three times more devastating to new ordinations than World War II. 30 per cent of new ordinations were lost because of WWII. 93 per cent of presbyter installations (since 1969 Newchurch does not ordain priests) were lost since Vatican II. It is as if an atom bomb had been dropped on Newchurch in Great Britain.
New ordinations fell during World Wars I and II and had just recovered to pre-war levels in 1962, the year that Vatican II opened. In the succeeding years, during which Newchurch has stopped Catholic ordinations of priests and substituted Protestantized installations of presbyters, they have fallen precipitously from 213 to just 16 in 2010. Most Newchurch presbyters are now elderly and will die off in the next few years with none to replace them.
Attendance at the invalid New Order Mess has similarly plummeted. From a peak of 2,114,219 at the time of Vatican II, attendance has fallen precipitously to 885,169 in 2010, a loss of 60 per cent. During the same period, Baptisms fell from a peak of 137,673 in 1964 to 63,962 "Initiations" (as Newchurch now calls their now-Protestantized rites) in 2010, a loss of 55 per cent. Catholic marriages peaked at 46,880 in 1960 and fell to 10,301 in 2010, a loss of 80 per cent.
The Newchurch of the New Order is disappearing in Great Britain faster than the Cheshire cat! Installations (formerly ordinations), initiations (formerly baptism), attendance at Mess (formerly Mass), and marriage have all collapsed. In England, where true Catholics once took up arms against Henry VIII to preserve the Traditional Latin Mass against that king's Protestantized service, Newchurch in Great Britain may die even before the Anglican Church is disestablished. Today's British "Catholics," including the pseudo-traditionalists, Neocons, and Motarians, have sold out to a phony unCatholic Mess, doctrine, and morals. Their courageous ancestors would spit at them in vehement condemnation of their apostasy from the true Faith.
You can no longer take reports in the secular or religious press at face value. Press outlets do not publish news any longer, but opinion. Even articles that purport to be news are really thinly-veiled opinion. And we all know that as far as religious topics go, opinion among the press is downright ignorant, if not prejudiced against true Catholicism. Latter-day journalists can hardly distinguish Fatima, the daughter of Mohammed, from the Portuguese apparition site!
A good example of how traditional Catholic readers must parse everything that they read came across the press on June 25, 2013. Presbyter Stephen Horn, the President of Benedict-Ratzinger's Schlerkreis, or Student Circle, claims that the Second Paedophile Newpope's health is now "fresh and happy." Is presbyter Horn's sanguine report just more Newchurch propaganda? It certainly seems so. Even he has to admit that Ratzinger is "frail." Other Newchurch clergy visiting Ratzinger have described him as looking like death warmed over.
When you look more deeply into the report, you find the dead giveway: Ratzinger is too ill for the first time in 36 years to preside over his annual Summer School at Castel Gandolfo from August 29 to September 2, 2013. This is the annual meeting at which Ratzinger plays the professor to a group of sycophantic students. He has presided over the affair since he became a Newcardinal in 1978. Horn admits: "I asked him if it would be possible for him to attend, perhaps even for part of it. But he said he will stay at his convent [retirement villa in the Newvatican Gardens] and will not go to Castel Gandolfo." You know that Ratzinger would truly have to be death warmed over not to preside over his beloved Schulkreis. After all, Castel Gandolfo is only a short 24-kilometre ride away by Newpapal helicopter from his retirement villa in the Newvatican gardens.
Presbyter Horn let slip another juicy tidbit. Francis-Bergoglio has been trying to get Ratzinger out of that retirement villa in Bergoglio's backyard and shunt him away to the Castel. Familiarity breeds contempt, as the saying goes. If you were Newpope, would you want the ex-Newpope living in your backyard? [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic Herald.]
Francis-Bergoglio has publicly stated that he never wanted to be Newpope. He has admitted that the Newpapal office makes him "mentally ill." He has stated that he is too "disorganized" to conduct his office. Now Francis "Mr. Humble" has gone sede-vacantist.
Bergoglio was slated to preside over a concert of Beethoven's Ninth (Choral) Symphony by the RAI National Symphony Orchestra, conducted by Juraj Valcuha, of Slovakia, scheduled to take in the Paul VI Hall at Newvatican. The Newcardinals were assembled there. Dignataries from the Italian government were assembled there. Bergoglio's white Newpapal armchair was set up in the place of honor. But Bergoglio went sede-vacantist. No one knows why. Was he sick? Was he incapacitated? Was he mentally ill? A Newarchbishop stepped into the awkward breach and said that Bergoglio had an "urgent commitment that cannot be postponed." Nonetheless, Newvatican officials looked visibly disoriented.
The picture of the Newpapal sedes vacans was used in many Italian papers. The only conclusion was that, at least on this occasion, the Newpapal Seat was vacant. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
Bergoglio has proven to be the most barbarian Newpope in recent memory. Benedict-Ratzinger played Mozart on his own piano. JPII-Wojtyla presided over a Newpapal Mess, whose music was Mozart's Coronation Mass, conducted by the Berlin Symphony's legendary Herbert von Karajan. Pope St. Pius X restored the Sacred Gregorian Chant throughout the Church. Bergoglio, on the other hand, appears to despise the great music of Western Civilization. He can't sing a note -- which is why Newpapal Messes now are devoid of the Sacred Chant of the Catholic Church, except for a few background ditties badly sung by the Sistine Choir.
Good Catholics, the Newcardinals sure picked a dumbkoff to be their latest Newpope. Not only does the man have a tin ear, he can't even get his theology right in public!
The urban myth is that Vatican II was a great "pastoral council." Now we have one of the leaders of the Newchurch that arose from that Council admitting that it was a "pastoral disaster." And he's right. Newchurchers know nothing about the Catholic Faith. Many of them can't even recite the Hail Mary from heart. Hardly any of them know the basic creed of the Church, the Apostles' Creed.
A story is related that two traditional Catholic laywomen approached the door of a Newchurcher to solicit funds. The laywomen said that they would give her 50 U.S. dollars if she could recite the Hail Mary; otherwise, she would have to donate 50 dollars to their traditional Catholic Church. The two laywomen left the house with a 50-dollar donation to their traditional Catholic Church.
The truth is out once again: Newchurchers don't know anything about the Catholic Faith that they claim to profess. This was the message of presbyter Robert Barron delivering the Keynote Address to the Catholic Media Conference, on June 19, 2013, in Denver, Colorado. Barron told the Conference of 500:
The "dumbing down" of the Catholic Faith that impacted catachesis in the mid-196s was a pastoral disaster of the first order. That's why many people in my generation left the Faith.
What Barron failed to tell the Conference is the full truth: that what passes for the Catholic today is a fraud. The Newchurch of the New Order has taken over what appears to be the Catholic Church just as a lethal virus takes over its host victim. Barron ought to know. He was only six years of age when the Modernist Vatican II Council ended in 1965. In 2012 Barron became the rector of what used to be one of the most prestigious seminaries in the United States before Vatican II: Mundelein Seminary of Chicago, Illinois. That seminary is now full of corruption: liturgical, doctrinal, and moral.
Good Catholics, the real question is why people like presbyter Barron, who know the truth that the Newchurch of the New Order is not Catholic, still remain in it. The simple answer is that they are the same type of hypocrital Church leaders that Our Lord Jesus Christ called "white sepulchures, which outwardly appear to men beautiful, but within are full of dead men's bones and of all filthiness" (Matthew 23:27/DRV). Barron himself said: "We need to mock false gods publicly." But Barron himself doesn't do that. Like all the Newchurch leaders, he talks, but hypocritically does nothing, just as the Second Paedophile Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger, talked, but did absolutely nothing to prevent the continued rape of tens of thousands of children. Now the Third Paedophile Pope, Jorge Bergoglio, has proclaimed that he wants to continue the Ratzinger do-nothing policy. It figures.
Is the destruction of Our Lady's venerable shrine at Lourdes, France, a sign of Heaven's abandonment of the unCatholic Newchurch of the New Order and its leaders? Is the age of Lourdes and Fatima finished with Our Lady acting as the agent of her Divine Son in withdrawing from the Newchurch of the New Order and its godless leaders?
Rampaging floods submerged Our Lady's Shrine at Lourdes, France, on June 20, 2013, wreaking devastation upon Lourdes and its famous pilgrimage site, which now faces ruin. Inundated were the Lourdes Grotto, where Our Lady appeared, and the healing pools were washed away. This is the second time in six months that Our Lady's Shrine has been devastated. On this second occasion melting snow has added to the weight of the flood waters and made this week’s deluge even more destructive than in October 2012.
The ferocious downpours continue, and the sanctuary, which has been taken over by the godless New Order for its phony "New Mess," may never recover, according to the Shrine's director, who stated: "We cannot tell a lie about the situation. Everything is broken. Everything is destroyed. It's catastrophic."
Even Newchurch officials admitted that Our Lady's Grotto, now submerged under mud, looks like "a vision of the Apocalypse." The Shrine has now been closed indefinitely. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Agence-France Presse.]
Good Catholics, those who put all their eggs in the Fatima basket are seeing only a small part of God's Big Picture. Our Lady's apparition at Lourdes in 1858 is certainly more venerable than Fatima of 1917. Even earlier apparitions of Our Lady, such as that at La Salette, France, in 1846, predicted to the "T" the dire times in which we now live after the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965) and its unCatholic Newpopes:
Rome will lose the Faith and become the seat of the Antichrist. The demons of the air, together with the Antichrist, will work great wonders on the earth and in the air, and men will become ever more perverted.
Nine bishops of Francis-Bergoglio's New Order sect in the United States on June 14, 2013, have publicly joined Planned Parenthood and called for funding of abortion by Newchurch organizations. This latest announcement has provided further evidence that Francis-Bergoglio, who has not issued any condemnation of his Newbishops, is planning to weaken the New Order sect's position on abortion, further departing from traditional Catholic moral doctrine.
The Newbishops have also charged those fighting against the murder of children with employing "McCarthy-era tactics" in opposing the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops' pro-abortion Campaign for Human Development. In addition to being apostates from the Catholic Faith, the ten Newbishops are abysmally ignorant of history because the public records opened after the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991 proved that Senator McCarthy was exactly right: the U.S. State Department had been infiltrated with Communists! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LSN.]
The apostate Newchurch bishops, many of whom have also been pushing "full acceptance of the LGBT [Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Trangendered] community" and "gay marriage" on the New Order sect, have been accomplices in facilitating the rape of children by their Newchurch presbyters, or have themselves personally engaged in paedophiliac crimes. They are:
Good Catholics, what has Francis "Mr. Humble" Bergoglio responded with to the public apostacy from the Catholic Faith of nine of his Newbishops? Nothing. Absolutely nothing. Nihil. Nada. He stands in the wings silently encouraging it so that shortly the Newchurch of the New Order will gradually introduce an acceptance of abortion while the Newchurch sheep sit silently by, happy just to graze their Novus Ordo grass. This is just more proof that there is nothing Catholic about Newchurch. It is all a facade, as Our Lord said, "to deceive (if possible) even the elect."
On June 16, 2013, Newvatican announced that it would change its invalid Novus Ordo Mess further by injecting the name of Joseph II (Joseph I being Jacob's son) to its invalid new "eucharistic prayers," originally introduced by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini after the Modernist Vatican II Council in 1967. To traditional Catholics, this must seem like deja vu, as the same controversy arose in 1962. What is this controversy about St. Joseph and the Sacred Canon of the Mass, and what should traditional Catholics know about it?
First of all. the "New Mess" of 1969 (Novus Ordo), which was declared for the first time by Benedict-Ratzinger in 2007 to be the Ordinary Rite of the Novus Ordo sect, is a Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service fabricated by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, first introduced partially in 1962, then fully in 1969. That is why traditional Catholics have nothing to do with it. It is not a Mass; it is an invalid Protestantized service. You could add the names of every Saint in Heaven to this phony service, and it still wouldn't make it valid!
Second, the Traditional Latin Mass has only one Canon, which originated from the Apostles and their successors as early as the second century. Canon comes from the Greek word for "standard." When in 1967, after the Modernist Vatican II Council, the Novus Ordo sect added three more "canons" -- an abomination never before seen -- it couldn't very well call them "canons" because there was no longer any single standard. Thus arose the usage of the term "eucharistic prayer," a term already used by Protestants.
By adding the name of St. Joseph to its invalid Mess, the Novus Ordo sect is essentially saying that the Apostles left something out of Christ's true Mass, sometimes called the Mass of St. Peter, the Traditional Latin Mass. Some ignorant proto-Modernist Catholics were even trying to push this addition in the second half of the 19th century when the cult of St. Joseph was growing. Pope Pius IX at the time gave the correct answer for a Catholic pope, following Apostolic Tradition: "I am only the pope. What power have I to touch the Canon?"
Pope Leo XIII, Pope Pius IX's successor and a great devotee of St. Joseph, in 1892 abominated any change to the Sacred Canon, citing the Tradition of the Church that the Apostolic Canon was not to be touched. Again, in 1908, a petition was signed by more than 900 prelates specifically requesting that the "venerable name of Joseph, as the supreme Patron of the Universal Church, second to the Mother of God, be invoked at the Confiteor, the Offertory, the Canon and the Communion of the Mass." Despite the numerous and prominent petitioners, and 31 "confirmed ... theological theses" in this request, Pope St. Pius X refused categorically to violate Sacred Tradition.
What Pope Pius IX did was the Catholic thing. He extended to the Universal Church the Feast of the Patronage of St. Joseph in 1847, and in 1870, he solemnly declared the Joseph to be the Patron of the Universal Church and raised his feastday on March 19 to the rank of a Double of the First Class (but without an Octave, on account of Lent). Yet he did not dare to touch the Sacred Canon of St. Peter.
It was John XXIII-Roncalli, who, on November 13, 1962, violated Apostolic Tradition and the Sacred Apostolic Canon by adding the name of St. Joseph to Hannibal Bugnini's Half Novus Ordo Mess of 1962, the same Mess that Benedict-Ratzinger called by the theologically-erroneous term "Extraordinary." It is that corrupted Mess that has become the "Extraordinary" Mess of the Newchurch of the New Order, invalidly simulated not by ordained traditional Catholic priests, but by merely "installed" Novus Ordo presbyters.
One might well ask why the name of St. Joseph was not already part of the Traditional Latin Mass in Apostolic times. The answer is obvious. St. Joseph is the last patriarch of the Old Covenant. He did not live to see the death of Our Lord upon the Cross, which ushered in the New Covenant. In the Communicantes of the Traditional Latin Mass, after the Blessed Virgin Mary (who was present at the foot of that Cross), the next names invoked are Sts. Peter & Paul, the leaders of the New Covenant Church; then the Apostles Andrew, James, John, Thomas, James, Philip, Bartholomew, Matthew, Simon, and Thaddeus; then the successor popes, Linus, Cletus, Clement, Sixtus; then eight early Saints of the Roman Church, Cornelius, Cyprian, Laurence (Deacon of Rome), Chrysogonus, John and Paul, Cosmas and Damian.
Good Catholics, the Newchurch of the New Order couldn't recognize a valid Mass if it saw one! Its "New Mess" is a patently invalid Protestantized knockoff, which, in the Novus Ordo's official documents, is called "Sunday dinner" [Dominica coena], as it truly is, being simulated on a dinner table, not an altar. Even the "Mess of 1962+," so vaunted by the Motarians, in additional to being halfway Protestant, is simulated in Novus Ordo temples by unordained, merely "installed" presbyters, who have not received the traditional, valid Sacrament of Holy Orders. The proper response of true Catholics must be to stay out of Novus Ordo temples, to stay away from phony Novus Ordo Messes, and to stay away from phony Novus Ordo presbyters -- for the good of their eternal soul.
Are you a "homosensible" Newchurch presbyter? If so, you may be found on the dating web site for closeted "gay" presbyters, which has been operating out of the Vatican City State for a number of months now, in order to enable "gay" presbyters can find each other over the anonymity of the internet.
The site is hosted out of the Vatican City State by "a fraternity of homosensitive Roman Catholic Priests [sic] for those seeking to find "like-minded priests [sic]." The purpose of the site, named Venerabilis, provides an opportunity for "gay" presbyters (Newchurch has not ordained priests since 1969) to arrange sodomistic sexual contacts.
Some have suggested that the real purpose of the site is to encourage "gay" presbyters to leave the presbyterate and "forge a relationship with each other." Venerablis features "chat rooms" in five languages: Italian, English, Spanish, French, and German.
The homosexual-friendly site features on its home page Francis-Bergoglio's statement that a "gay" lobby is very powerful in Newvatican and that he is "too disorganized" to do anything about it. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Irish Central.]
One of the silliest arguments going around the Newchurch of the New Order is that presbyters should be married instead of celibate. Here are just two recent cases that put the lie to the "married clergy" argument and demonstrate that clerical celibacy, the Catholic Church's norm from Apostolic times, is the only possibility, practically and spiritually. For further information, click on FAQ10: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Beliefs? in the section "Priestly Celibacy."
In Santiago, Chile, next door to Francis-Bergoglio's Argentina, a presbyter, Ricardo Munoz Quinteros, was charged on June 15, 2013, with raping eight children, including his own. This presbyter had a common-law marriage and yet raped his own daughter at age 5. Although he was "married," he paid girls 60 U.S. dollars for sex in motel rooms. The presbyter's common-law wife is also being charged with complicity. Munoz wasn't even faithful to his "wife." Another woman has accused him of being the father of her child.
The Newchurchers say will say: our New Order sect has already fixed all of these problems. But take note that these child rapes by the Newchurch presbyter all occurred within the last five years. Independent audits of Newdioceses have shown that child rape is increasing, not decreasing among the New Order sect's clergy. Thus has the lie been put to Benedict-Ratzinger's and Francis-Bergoglio's "Zero Tolerance" policy against their Newclergy raping children!
Let us turn from Bergoglio's South America to North America. There presbyter David Primeaux, of Virginia, a paedophile of monumental proportions, asphyxiated himself by carbon monoxide in his pickup truck. Primeaux was also a "married presbyter." Primeaux was installed as a Novus Ordo presbyter in 1975 in Louisiana. There he raped at least 15 boys as young as 12 on at least 33 occasions when a deacon, then presbyter. Newchurch officials, including his Newbishops, repeatedly failed to take any meaningful action against Primeaux and other presbyters from continuing their sex crimes against children.
Premieux also had a common-law "wife." That didn't stop his problems, however, and on December 27, 2012, a pair of his child victims came knocking on his door. At least the poor man felt guilt. That's at least something, because most of these Newchurch presbyter-criminals show no remorse at all. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
Good Catholics, St. John Chrysostom, one of the Four Great Doctors of the Eastern Church, teaches us that, to the contrary, the bishops involved will likely merit no mercy at all. The Saint-Doctor, who had "had it" with the heretical and immoral bishops of his own time, proclaimed: "The floor of Hell is paved with the skulls of rotten bishops." St. John Chrysostom understood the Catholic teaching that "the higher they are, the farther they fall." Popes and bishops are more likely to be in Hell or Purgatory because they failed to meet the standards of their high office, which (remember) they voluntarily assumed. It isn't just a matter of wearing a fancy hat; it is a matter of enforcing the Catholic Faith among their clergy.
The International Criminal Court has determined that it will not yet file formal criminal charges against Benedict-Ratzinger, Francis-Bergoglio, and other top Newchurch officials for "crimes against humanity." However, the ICC Prosecutor stated that he was waiting to file charges when "new facts and information" are provided by advocates for the child victims of Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. The Court did not find that a pope has automatic immunity against criminal prosecution.
Victims' advocates before the Court presented 22,000 pages of documentation and are continuing to work on "building the record of ongoing child sex crimes and cover ups" by Newchurch and its living Newpopes, Benedict-Ratzinger and Francis-Bergoglio. The advocates remain confident that the International Criminal Court will eventually investigate and prosecute Newchurch's hierarchy for "enabling and concealing sexual violence worldwide against children."
Charged in the original complaint together with Ratzinger before the Court were Newvatican Secretaries of State Tarcisio Bertone and Angelo Sodano, and the Prefect of the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith, William Levada. Advocates for the hundreds of thousands of children raped and sodomized by Newchurch clergy summarized the charges in their 71-page complaint before the Court:
The Catholic [sic] hierarchy remains a powerful, secretive and largely self-serving monarchy that protects its reputation, clout, and wealth instead of protecting children. In recent years, it has done a terrific job of talking about child safety. But it refuses to take any but the most minimal steps to actually ensure child safety. That’s why this international effort to achieve secular justice is so crucial.
The current Newpope, Jorge Bergolio, when he was Newchurch's archbishop of Buenos Aires, Argentina, was one of many Newbishop who failed to draw up the minimal internal guidelines on abuse required in May 2011 by Newvatican as a face-saving ploy. Once again Newvatican and its Newpopes are exposed as world-class cover-up artists and criminal accomplices. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the SNAP Network.]
On June 17, 2013, in the nineteenth year of its apostolate on the internet, the TRADITIO Network logged its 19,000,000th reader. TRADITIO was the first traditional Roman Catholic site to appear on the World Wide Web and was founded on the Feastday of St. Michael the Archangel, September 29, 1994. We were here even before Newvatican was, even before Amazon.com was!
We thank the Lord for our over 19,000,000 readers over these years and for our hundreds of dedicated correspondents from all over the world, who keep us current on everything going on in the bowels of Newvatican, in the inner sancta of various traditional organizations, and at Traditional Latin Mass sites around the world. TRADITIO was determined by an Alexis-Amazon statistical survey to be the most read traditional Roman Catholic web site on the World Wide Web.
In their Daily Commentaries, the TRADITIO Fathers do not just copy news reports or the uninformed notions of johnny-come-lately "bloggers" in secular and religious publications, who in fact have very little background or understanding of the Traditional Catholic Movement. Nor is TRADITIO Network enslaved to any particular organization's viewpoint. Instead, the TRADITIO Network provides the hard-hitting, independent analysis and perspective of over half a century of Roman Catholic experience, even from before Vatican II.
The TRADITIO Network is avidly read within the highest bowels of at Newrome and Menzingen (SSPX). In addition to the Daily Commentaries from the Fathers, including lively commentary on Church news from the traditional perspective, TRADITIO's other fifteen departments provide resources and materials for its readers to study and learn about the traditional Roman Catholic Faith.
We are particularly touched by the many thousands of messages that we have received from Newchurchers of the New Order, including Motarians, who say that they have been converted to the traditional Roman Catholic Faith because of TRADITIO's uncompromising, independent commentaries and materials. The TRADITIO Network is one of many means through which Our Lord appears be working out the Traditional Catholic Restoration of the 21st century.
On May 19, 2013, Pentecost(al) Sunday, Francis-Bergoglio was filmed on TV2000, the Newchurch Italian Bishops Conference network, purportedly performing an "exorcism" on a man in a wheelchair. If, in fact, it was an exorcism, it failed. Over two weeks later, the man reported to El Mundo, a Spanish-language publication," that he is still possessed by demons. His possession is physically exhibited in various physical symptoms that have not been successfully treated by his physicians: angina myocardialis, dyspepsia, neuropathy, disambulation, dyspnea, insomnia, and nightmares.
In 1972 Paul VI-Montini abolished the traditional four Minor Orders (Porter, Lector, Exorcist, and Acolyte), which all traditional Catholic priests still receive before the three Major Orders (Subdeacon, Deacon, and Priest). Montini had already abolished in 1968 ordination to the traditional Order of the Priesthood and replaced with an invalid Protestantized installation to the Presbyterate. Such presbyters are not ordained to the traditional priesthood "to offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for the living and the dead," but merely installed "to preside over the assembly of the people." Moreover, they are no longer ordained as Exorcists because that Order has been abolished in the New Order sect. The possessed man that Bergoglio "exorcised" has tried ten other presbyters besides Bergoglio, who himself was is the first Newpope neither to have been ordained as a priest nor consecrated as a bishop. Bergoglio and all ten Novus Ordo presbyters have failed to relieve the man of his possession.
The possessed man stated on June 4, 2013, over two weeks after Bergoglio's "exorcism": "I still have demons inside me. They have not gone away." A Mexican presbyter from the Legionaries of Christ, the paedophile Marciel Maciel's discredited religious group, which had received JPII-Wojtyla's public Newpapal blessing, was standing beside the man when Bergoglio performed the "exorcism." The presbyter said that, far from being exorcised, the Devil roared triumphantly like a lion at Bergoglio, who paid no attention, perhaps embarrassed that his "exorcism" wasn't working before the Italian television cameras.
In addition, four presbyters administered to the man the Blessing of the Sick, which has replaced the Sacrament of Extreme Unction, or Last Rites, in the Newchurch of the New Order. The Novus Ordo "blessing" did not remove the possession either. Maybe the possessed man will one day abjure the unCatholic New Order and its Newclergy, and find true release from his possesion through a properly-trained traditional Catholic exorcist-priest using the traditional Latin form of exorcism.
Newbishop Geoffrey Robinson, of Sydney, Australia, called on Newchurchers around the world to sign a petition to Francis-Bergoglio to call an Oecumenical Council to take effective measures to end the rape and sodomy of children by Newchurch clergy. The Newbishop said that all Bergoglio had done in three months on Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust was to send "signals." Robinson said that Bergoglio needs to take action to "change whatever needs to be changed."
Robinson has also written a book on the scandal, entitled For Christ's Sake: End Sexual Abuse in the Catholic [Sic] Church ... for Good. Australia was so enraged at Newchurch's cover-up of extensive rape of children in that country that it has established a major Parliamentary Inquiry to expose Newchurch criminals and do justice to the child victims because Newchurch has done nothing but talk.
Robinson and many Australian Newchurchers, according to the petition, are "sickened by the continuing stories of sexual abuse within our Church and ... appalled by the accounts of an unChristian response to those who have suffered." This intolerable situation was conducted under the leadership of JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and now Francis-Bergoglio. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
Just as the TRADITIO Fathers predicted, Francis-Bergoglio has rapidly been backing down from traditional Catholic doctrines. The most scandalous so far was a perceived doctrinal blunder concerning atheists. Now Bergoglio has backed away from the Biblical condemnation, confirmed in the most serious way by Catholic Moral Theology, that homosexual acts are some of the most grievous sins possible, in fact, one of the Four Sins that Cry out to Heaven for Retribution.
When Bergoglio was meeting with the Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, at Newrome, on June 14, 2013, Bergoglio refused to condemn outright homosexual acts, particularly in the guise of "gay marriage," but talked only about promoting "family values," not a religious term, but a political term that is variously defined. "Gay Marriage" is on the verge of being adopted in the British Parliament, of which Welby is a member.
Bergoglio does not base his morals on the commandments of God. Thus, for him, the present time is not right for "gay marriage" -- for "anthropological reasons," not because God condemns it in both the Natural Law and the Written Law. However, for Bergoglio, the time may soon be right -- also for "anthropological reasons." Bergoglio's unCatholic morality was clearly exposed in a 2010 "dialog" with a Jewish rabbi by the name of Abraham Skorka, published as Sobre el Cielo y la Tierra, when Bergoglio was Newarchbishop of Buenos Aires.
Bergoglio refused to specify that marriage should be a union between a man and woman. In this, Bergoglio has even departed from his predecessors Benedict-Ratzinger and JPII-Wojtyla. As Newcardinal of Buenos Aires, Bergoglio urged his fellow Argentinean Newbishops to approve of "civil unions," the legal equivalent of "gay marriage," which even then were being rejected by Benedict-Ratzinger. Those Newbishops were at least moral enough to reject Bergoglio's scandalous anti-Christian proposal. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
Good Catholics, the handwriting is on the wall. Bergoglio's anti-Catholicism is already exposed for all to see. The New Order sect under Bergoglio will rapidly swing even more Protestant than it is now, and more and more immoral.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
You TRADITIO Fathers have for the longest time been saying that Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX is going to sell out to the Conciliar Church. I remember when I first met my wife three years ago, telling her that I think Fellay is going to sell out the SSPX because of the information I've been reading on the TRADITIO Network. Both my wife and her family said that is all nonsense and couldn't believe it. Her grandfather said he knows Fellay, saying that he's a "holy man" and would never do such a thing. My wife's grandfather helped establish an SSPX community back in the 1980's when there was no Traditional Latin Mass available.
Now that the cat is out of the bag with the SSPX, my wife is shocked. Her grandparents are also shocked beyond disbelief and are extremely disappointed in what Fellay has done to destroy the original SSPX. So my question is this: how did the TRADITIO Network know for so long about Fellay's desire to sell out the Neo-SSPX to the New Order Sect when most in the Neo-SSPX didn't see this coming?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
This is an apt question as the TRADITIO Network approaches its 20th year on the internet and its 20,000,000th reader. Much of the information for the last eight years was public, since the Fellay-Ratzinger sellout negotiations began, and anyone could have seen the truth if he had just kept his eyes open and used common sense. The problem is that nowadays few keep their eyes open, and few use common sense. People seem now to want to be deceived.
A similar situation on the secular side has recently occurred in the United States, where for four years many were happy to close their eyes and be deceived by their leader. But there now the scandals are coming out so fast that the government is tottering, and two-thirds say that they now don't believe their leader -- about anything. The same thing has happened in Newchurch. The same thing has happened in Fellay's Neo-SSPX. It has taken eight years instead of our in Fellay's case, but finally more Neo-SSPXers are seeing him for the Great Deceiver that he is, and his priests and lay members are leaving him in large numbers.
You have to remember that many of us TRADITIO Fathers have been around since before Vatican II. We knew Josef Ratzinger at Vatican II. We knew Archbishop Lefebvre when he originally founded the SSPX in 1970. We are not johnny-come-latelys like so many latter-day "bloggers" and sites that simply repeated reports from the press, which is abysmally ignorant of what is going on. Press agencies used to have people that specialized in religious reporting. Now they draw from the same pool of ignorance that is coming out of our "higher-education" institutions: agnostics, atheists, New Agers, and all the rest. They wouldn't know a pagan from a Christian, and certainly they haven't the foggiest idea of what "Catholic" is. As Sacred Scripture wisely teaches, "If the blind lead the blind, both will fall into the pit" (Matthew 14:31/DRV).
It is this depth of experience that gives us TRADITIO Fathers a unique perspective that is to be found nowhere else on the internet. We have remained staunchly independent of both extremes: the Newpopes' Newchurch of the New Order and Fellay's Neo-SSPX of Pseudo-traditionalism. We stand for true Catholicism. The Catholicism of the Traditional Latin Mass, not the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II Mess of 1962+ and certainly not the invalid Full-blown Novus Ordo Mess of 1969. We stand for the Catholic doctrine that is taught to us in Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, represented by some of the most brilliant minds born, the likes of St. Augustine and the other Great Fathers of the Church, as well as St. Thomas Aquinas and the Scholastics.
We stand for unadulterated Catholic morals. You can't sodomize children and call yourself a "priest." You can't support and protect such people and call yourself a "pope." We stand for Roman civilization, first the pre-Christian forerunner, then the Christian transformation of it. It is this civilization that gave the world just laws and government, the most beautiful music and art, the most lasting architecture, the greatest literature, and so much more of the highest culture.
Secondly, most of what you have read on the subject of Fellay's sellout has a strong bias from both sides. On the one hand, you had the propaganda machine of Newchurch trying to make Benedict-Ratzinger out to be some kind of New Order "saint," who just happened to have a love of "traditionalism."
We TRADITIO Fathers clearly saw that as a facade. We knew Ratzinger when he was the besuited "Mr. Modernist" at Vatican II, and the subsequent years didn't change his mind, only his facade. He became more clever at "politics," and people like the Motarians, who caved into to the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II Mess of 1962+ instead of continuing to demand the Traditional Latin Mass, were won over -- because it served to assuage their guilty consciences for giving up their fight against the New Order.
On the other hand, you had the propaganda machine of Fellay and his Neo-SSPX, which was trying to make Fellay out to be "traditional," whereas he was, by his own admission, trying to sell out his organization to the New Order sect. Now that his sellout plans have failed -- but only for the time being--, he is trying to rewrite history by claiming that he never wanted to sell out. But the evidence from his own statements and actions are available for all to read.
We TRADITIO Fathers clearly saw Fellay's feigned "traditionalism" as a facade. We saw his tyranny grow over the years, as he dismissed independent leaders appointed by Archbishop Lefebvre and replaced them with his own yes-men. We saw him punish, in the name of "unity," good priests whose only "sin" was that they stuck by the Archbishop's original traditional Catholic principles. In effect, Fellay's lieutenants (like German's Superior Franz Schmidberger) became a personal hit squad to enforce the Superior-Dictator's personal will. If you question Fellay in anything, you are out. This is idolatry against the First Commandment of God. Only Almighty God has that kind of power!
Thirdly, although anyone could see in the public information the handwriting on the wall if he wanted to, we TRADITIO Fathers did have additional inside information from "whistleblowers" within the Neo-SSPX, who were rightly shocked by Fellay's abandonment of the Archbishop's traditional Catholic principles for the SSPX and by Fellay's increasing tyranny over the organization. The TRADITIO Network's hundreds of dedicated correspondents from around the world keep us current on everything that is going on in the bowels of Newvatican, of Menzingen, in the inner sancta of various traditional organizations, and Mass sites around the world.
Fourthly, our perspective is classical, drawing from the wisdom of the ancient historians and philosophers for an analysis of the practical world. We have read our Thucydides, our Tacitus, and the other ancient sources that have always inspired the thinkers in the Church. The Church does not live in a vacuum in society. But even we TRADITIO Fathers have been surprised by how closely the Newchurch and the secular State are in our time are simultaneously experiencing exactly the same crises: of leadership, of doctrine, and of morals.
We have just been forwarded an expensive new mailing from Fellay (vetted through his Novus Ordo Dutch marketing agency) that includes over two hours of unsolicited defensive speeches and two defensive booklets? He must be in more trouble than we TRADITIO Fathers realized. It is certainly notable that the booklet purportedly against the New Order sect is only six pages in black and white, whereas the booklet against his own Neo-SSPXers who reject his sellout is twenty pages in full color. Oops! His upside-down priorities are exposed once again.
Keep reading the Daily Commentaries assiduously. There is much more coming, and we TRADITIO Fathers expect that that Providence will foil the plans of many, with many more surprises in store!
Bernie Fellay, the Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX, was "interviewed" in the May-June 2013 issue of his own house organ, The Angelus, on the 25th Anniversary of Archbishop Lefebvre's 1988 consecrations of four traditional bishops in a public rejection of JPII-Wotyla's and Card. Ratzinger's "Modernist Rome." Actually, these canned "interviews," which Fellay now issues on an ever more frequent basis, are not really interviews at all, but propaganda pieces that attempt to "spin-doctor" the reality of his Novus Ordo sellout and to rewrite the reality of the catastrophe that he has made of Archbishop Lefebvre's SSPX.
In the "interview," Fellay admits that when moneyed Swiss interests prevailed upon Archbishop Lefebvre to add him to the original three candidates, Richard Williamson, Bernard Tissier de Mallerais, and Alfonso de Galarreta, Fellay's initial reaction was "to think there must be others better than me." That places Fellay in the company of Benedict-Ratzinger and Francis-Bergoglio, who have admitted that they didn't want their job. No wonder this "Terrible Troika" has failed Catholicism so badly!
Fellay also reveals that, although the number of bishops reporting to him has fallen 25 per cent by his expulsion of senior bishop Richard Williamson, "there is no urgency or extreme need to consecrate another bishop." (However, Bishop Williamson has indicated that he will commence ordinations of priests, and perhaps consecrations of bishops.)
Answering a question about Neo-SSPX seminary studies, Fellay states: "We try to put the seminarians in contact, as far as possible, with Archbishop Lefebvre himself: his voice, his teaching, his books, etc."
Fellay's statement is hard to characterize as anything other than a willful lie. The reality is that Fellay sued to stop the family of Archbishop Lefebvre from publishing the Archbishop's complete works, without editing by Fellay. Fellay was apparently afraid that the Archbishop's patent traditional Catholicism and hatred of what he called "Modernist Rome," that is, the New Order sect, would jeopardize his pending sellout of the Neo-SSPX to Ratzinger and that New Order sect.
Fellay states in his propaganda "interview": "We remain faithful to the line Archbishop Lefebvre gave."
This is another outright lie by Fellay. If it were true, why have 100 of his priests called him a traitor to the Archbishop, abandoned Fellay's Neo-SSPX, and started a new organization to return to the Archbishop's traditional Catholicism? Naturally, Fellay completely ignores this earth-shaking development when talking about the SSPX's 25-year history. He plays sycophant to the New Order sect while deceptively keeping an ever-fading veneer of "traditionalism." He admits in the "interview" that he remains open to receive contacts from what Archbishop Lefebvre called the unCatholic "Modernist Rome." Moreover, Fellay goes on to say that the Newchurch of the New Order -- with its Newmess, Newdoctrine, and Newmorality -- "is God's Church."
Fellay states in the "interview" about those who claim that he planned (or still plans) to compromise on the Modernist Vatican II Council and with the post-Conciliar Church: "I don't know why they have these ideas." He singles out Bishop Williamson, the former senior SSPX bishop, the one closest to Archbishop Lefebvre, and the priests who follow him.
Here we have another willful lie from the man who would play a "poor me" victim, when it is he who is the traitor to traditional Catholicism. And he knows exactly why he has earned justified opprobrium. His three bishops confronted him with very specific charges of treason against Archbishop Lefebvre's traditional Catholic principles.
One hundred of his priests have confronted him with very specific charges of treason against Archbishop Lefebvre's traditional Catholic principles. The August 10, 2012, Vienna Declaration by five senior Neo-SSPX priests, wrote very specifically about why they have left Fellay. He teaches errors and allows errors to spread, thus dividing the flock. Fellay is "excusing" the Modernist Vatican II Council instead of rejecting it.
Good Catholics, this latest canned propaganda "interview," perhaps written in part for Fellay by his newly-hired Novus Ordo Dutch marketing agency, shows that Bernie Fellay is a disciple of the famous saying by Adolf Hitler's highly-effective Propaganda Minister, Joseph Goebbels: "Keep repeating a lie long enough and it becomes the truth." All too many of the Neo-SSPX sheep still buy Fellay's willful lies when their God-given reason tells them to do just the opposite.
On June 6, 2013, Francis-Bergoglio held a "private" meeting with the Religious Confederation of Latin America and the Caribbean. A partial transcript of the meeting was leaked, and it is a doozy! Bergoglio jeered Bernie Fellay's "Rosary Crusades" and traditionalists in general. Then Bergoglio went on to admit that his Newcuria has a "gay lobby," about which he is doing nothing. The hour-long meeting was conducted in Bergoglio's native Spanish, so he cannot claim that he made mistakes because he doesn't know Italian well, let alone Latin.
Bergoglio first jeered Fellay and traditionalists in general for their beliefs:
There are certain traditionalist groups. I know them as I took to receiving them in Buenos Aires. And you feel like you've gone back 60 years! Before the Council..., you feel like it's 1940 again.... One anecdote, only to illustrate this –- not to make you laugh –- I took it with respect, but it bothered me. When they elected me, I received a letter from one of these groups [Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX], and they told me: "Holiness, we offer you this spiritual treasure: 3,525 rosaries." Why they didn't say, "We're praying for you," let's wonder.... But this counting [of Rosaries]..., isn't 'today.'
How can Bergoglio's statement be read except as a direct slap in the face to Bernie Fellay, the Superior Dictator of the Neo-SSPX, who has blasphemed Our Lady's Most Holy Rosary by using it as a cheap political tool in his phony "Rosary Crusades," whose purpose was only to delude his sheep into thinking that selling out his now-untraditional Neo-SSPX to the unCatholic New Order sect is somehow approved of by the Holy Virgin?
Bergoglio's second telling admission at the meeting was that his Newcuria comprises a "gay lobby":
In the Curia, there are holy people, but there is also a stream of corruption. The "gay lobby" is mentioned, and it is true; it is here.
This admission was so stunning that Bergoglio's Newvatican propaganda organs moved immediately to cover it up, allegedly because the meeting was "private." The Novus Ordo Religious Confederation, obviously thinking that the information was public, was forced to issue an apology for reporting Bergoglio's remarks on issues of doctrine. What should be "private" or "secret" about Catholic doctrine?
Bergoglio has previously stated that "gay marriage" is not wrong because God condemns it perpetually in both His Natural and His Written Law, but because it is wrong for "anthropological reasons" -- for now. That can change in the future, as Modernist Newchurch doctrines are always subject to change from year to year.
It is of interest to recall that La Repubblica, Italy's largest-circulating daily newspaper, reported that Benedict-Ratzinger was forced to resign because of the findings contained in the secret "red dossier" of his Cardinalatial Commission, which was leaked to the press, but withheld from the Newcardinal-Electors at the March 2013 conclave. The dossier revealed that the powerful "gay lobby" within Ratzinger's Newcuria was the subject of blackmail attempts. Some have gone even farther, to suggest that, particularly in light of Newchuch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust over which he had presided for 32 years, Ratzinger himself was the subject of blackmail: resign or we'll expose you. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters and La Repubblica.]
Good Catholics, much as Newvatican tries to keep them quiet, reports of homosexuality and even paedophilia within Newvatican have become very common. For example, Newvatican became embroiled in a gay prostitution scandal in 2010, in which the press reported that Ratzinger's major-domo was functioning right under Ratzinger's nose as a "gay pimp" for members of Newpope's household. Yet Bergoglio, now admitting how corrupt his administration already is, has, like, Ratzinger, failed to announce any action to expel the perverts. Bergoglio's explanation for his failure was: "I am very disorganized." Ratzinger never bothered to give any excuse for his failure.
We TRADITIO Fathers have consistently pointed out that the Half Novus Ordo "Motu" Mess of 1962+, the unCatholicly-termed "Extraordinary" Mess, is a fraud. It is the Vatican II Mess fabricated by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, which just seven years later was easily morphed into the Full-blown Novus Ordo Mess of 1969. Now we have further proof.
Newarchbishop of Houston, Texas, Daniel DiNardo, who entices some clueless pseudo-traditionalists to a phony "Motu" Mess in his Newarchdiocese, turned his Novus Ordo cathedral of the Sacred Heart, associated with the "Motu" Mess, into a site for the "ordination" of several Protestant Methodist priestesses.
This is not the first time an heretical Newbishop of the phony "Motu" Mess has turned over his cathedral to a Methodist "consecration." Fabian Bruskewitz, who until September 2012 was the de facto head of the "Motu" Society of St. Peter, a Novus Ordo-based "Motu" Mess group, also turned his cathedral in Lincoln, Nebraska, over to a "consecration" of a Protestant Methodist "bishop."
On May 28, 2013, Protestant Methodist bishopess Janice Riggle Huie, at the United Methodist Church's Annual Texas Conference, "ordained" several priestesses in Newarchbishop DiNardo's Newchurch cathedral. No word has emanated from Francis-Bergoglio or his Newvatican condemning the "ordinations" of a heretic bishopess in a "Catholic" church. He approves of it! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the United Methodist Church Annual Texas Conference.]
Good Catholics, what do we learn from these revealing events? That one cannot be "Motu" without having to prove an association with the New Order. For every "Motu" Mess, it seems that you have to have a Protestant "ordination" to balance it, lest Francis-Bergoglio, or whoever, think that you are "too conservative."
Independent traditional Catholic bishop Richard Williamson, formerly the senior bishop of the SSPX, has announced his second episcopal visitation to Europe to explain to traditional Catholics there why Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX must no longer be supported and to inform traditional Catholics of a new option, the Society of St. Pius X of the Strict Observance, which has been founded upon Archbishop Lefebvre's original traditional Catholic principles. In his weekly Bulletin, of June 8, 2013, Bishop Williamson wrote: "The fall of the Society of St. Pius X from what it was under Archbishop Lefebvre between 1970 and 1991 to what it has become over the last, say, 15 years, is little short of horrible." The visitation will take place in the July/August 2013 timeframe. The countries so far on his itinerary are France, Belgium, Italy, Spain, and Malta.
Malta is a particularly interesting venue for a visitation. Malta had supported Benedict-Ratzinger, the Second Paedophile Newpope, who visited there in April 2010 when Ireland and several other major European countries turned down his request to visit because of his complicity in the paedophile crimes of his presbyters and Newbishops. He also caused a bit of a scandal there when he fell asleep in his Newpapal throne during his Novus Ordo Mess. His assistants had to poke him visibly in the ribs to get him back to earth.
Bishop Williamson's planned visitation has "horrified" the New Order sectarians in Malta, whose Newbishop, Pawlu Cremona, has forbidden even the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II Mess of 1962+ and has refused to accept any responsibility for the continued assault and rape of children in Malta by his Newchurch presbyters. Cremona has refused any compensation to the child victims, even when their rapists have been criminally convicted. Clearly, Malta needs a visit by a real bishop!
At the same time it has been announced that Bernie Fellay, the Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX, has spent his Neo-SSPXers money to hire a Dutch marketing firm, Credo Creatie, to help him "spin" his attempted sellout to the New Order sect. The Dutch firm has been hired to create a "brand" for Fellay's Neo-SSPX, just as Madison Avenue marketing companies "brand" corporations to sell their goods. This is a technique that the sinking Novus Ordo religious orders have been using for years. Fellay has learned well from his Novus Ordo masters-- except that Madison-Avenue branding hasn't worked for the Novus Ordo sect, and it won't work for Fellay either. His Neo-SSPX will continue disintegrating, even faster than before.
Originally the Dutch company refused the contract because, as it wrote Fellay: "You don't have a good name out there, and I don't want my company to have the blemish of having you as a customer." But the company, after a six-hour meeting with Fellay, was convinced to take the contract. It was said that Fellay offered "a bundle of money," perhaps flowing from Fellay's dozen corporations in Europe, co-managed by Fellay's partner, the Jewish fundraiser and Dresden lawyer, Maximilian Krah.
The Dutch branding company, after some months' analysis of the Neo-SSPX, concluded that Fellay really looked "cruel" when he continued to fight Newchurch of the New Order. The company, therefore, recommended that Fellay must stop fighting the New Order. That is why already Fellay's Neo-SSPX web sites, his Neo-SSPX Angelus, and other Neo-SSPX organs have given up the fight against the Modernist Vatican II Council and the invalid New Mess. As one priest who recently left Fellay and his pseudo-traditionalistic Neo-SSPX wrote: "It seems to me that the Society has become a blunt sword in the hands of the Lord. There is no cutting edge any more, it is useless!"
We TRADITIO Fathers constantly maintained that Josef Ratzinger never wanted to be Newpope, but on three occasions before his election in 2005 pleaded with JPII-Wojtyla to let him return to his home in Germany. Too bad JPII-Wojtyla, the First Paedophile Newpope, didn't allow him to do so, as many tens of thousands of child victims would have been spared being assaulted and sodomized by Newchurch presbyters and Newbishops. On June 7, 2013, Francis-Bergoglio admitted that he too never wanted to be Newpope and indicated that the Newpapal office has compromised his "mental health." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
One can see similarities between Benedict-Ratzinger and now Francis-Bergoglio to Barack Obama in the United States, whose administration is currently sinking in scandal after scandal, just as the Newpopes' regimes are, arising from mismanagement at the very top -- or really lack of management there. Obama seems more interested in playing golf with Tiger Woods, flying around in luxury on the presidential airplane, and hanging out with pop-music stars than tending to the many responsibilities of a Chief Executive Officer. Similarly, Ratzinger was more interested in writing his books -- which no pope ever did before because of the doctrinal confusion that it would have created -- than in taking concrete steps to expel the paedophile presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals that populated his administration from top to bottom.
Moreover, Bergoglio seems to have little foundation in the Catholic Faith. Recently, he caused scandal by getting his theology wrong in his "homily" at a Mess. Then, at his June 5, 2013, General Audience, he spoke not about Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Blessed Virgin Mary, or the Saints. Rather, he admonished the people in St. Peter's Square to clean their plates because there are starving children in China. As yet, Bergoglio has failed to make a substantive, serious statement about the Catholic Faith. He seems just to be fiddling while his Newchurch of the New Order burns and moaning about his "mental health."
Good Catholics, it is too bad that these incompetent and malignant Newpopes didn't just answer Nequaquam! when the Newcardinal-Deacon asked them the question: Acceptasne electionem de te canonice factam in Summum Pontificem? The Church -- and the child victims -- might have been saved being burned in the conflagration of the Catholic Faith that has been perpetrated under their Newpapal regimes.
While many women now spurn the Biblical requirement of wearing a headcovering in a Christian Church in humility to God, woe to the man who tries to enter a Jewish synagogue without one! But the Vice President of the United States, Joseph Biden, had no hesitation in donning the headdress of a Jew and preaching in Judaism's Park Avenue Synagogue on June 10, 2013. If women don't cover their head in supposed Christian churches, why couldn't Biden have preached bareheaded? Or, better yet, not preached in a Jewish synagogue at all!
Biden's "Judaism" comes on the heels of Newpope Francis-Bergoglio's Newcardinal-President for Promoting Christian Unity recently announcing Newchurch's new doctrine that Jews no longer have to accept Jesus Christ as their Messias, Lord, and Savior, rejecting a dogma that is found throughout the New Testament in both the Gospels and Epistles.
Biden delivered in the synagogue a eulogy of Frank Lautenberg, a former U.S. Senator from New Jersey, who died on June 3, 2013. Biden, like a vaudeville comedian, cracked jokes at the funeral. Biden claims to be a "cradle Catholic," while rejecting the Church's traditional moral teachings on sodomy ("gay" marriage, civil unions), abortion ("choice"), and other immoral abominations. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Los Angeles Times.]
Wait long enough, and the truth will out even from the mouth of liars. The highest Newchurch official yet, Newcardinal-Primate of Brussels, Belgium (1982-2010), Godfried Daneels, has admitted in the clearest terms that the Newchurch of the New Order has deviated from teaching traditional Catholic moral doctrine and has substituted a "New Moral Theology." Thus, the Newchurch of the New Order cannot be considered "Catholic."
The Newcardinal-Primate on June 5, 2013, publicly admitted that the Newchurch of the New Order has changed traditional Catholic moral doctrine. Moreover, Danneels admission goes far toward explaining how Newchurch and its Newpopes have sunk into moral depravity, including the First Paedophile Newpope, JPII-Wojtyla; the Second Paedophile Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger; and the Third Paedophile Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio. Newcardinal Danneels is the highest Newchurch official yet to have admitted that the Newchurch of the New Order no longer teaches Catholicism.
Admitted Danneels: "Before Vatican II, in theology, as in other areas, the discipline was fixed. After the Council there has been a revolution.... There is no no common theology or philosophy as there was before." We TRADITIO Fathers have not heard a clearer statement that the Newchurch of the New Order is not the Catholic Church, but is a deviate from Catholicism, like the Protestant sects.
Danneels stated that in the New Order sect's New Moral Theology, "states are free to open up civil marriage for gays if they want." The New Theology coming from Newchurch now indicates that governments can do whatever they want in the moral area. "[New]church has nothing to say about such laws." In other words, "gay" marriage may morally be initiated by governments. Abortion may morally be legalized by governments.
Newcardinal-Primate Danneels further proclaimed that French Newchurchers should "obey the law" and "not oppose gay marriage." The New Moral Theology coming from Newchurch now teaches that Newchurchers should not protest immoral governmental laws. Even though Danneels is known as a liberalist, his successor as Newarchbishop-Primate, Andre Leonard, is known as "orthodox," but Leonard's spokesman said that Leonard too approves the teaching of the New Moral Theology that sodomy, and perhaps abortion and other abominations too, are acceptable in the New Order sect. However, when Leonard's unCatholic statement was challenged, he tried to tap-dance around it. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LSN.]
"The darkest places in Hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in times of moral crisis." In yet another example of Newpapal hypocrisy, Francis-Bergoglio on June 4, 2013, told the Head of the Pontifical Gregorian University Centre for Child Protection, presbyter Hans Zollner: "This is important work. Keep it up." The hypocrisy is that, if it such important work, why has Bergoglio not lifted a finger to assist the tens of thousands of children who have been assaulted, sodomized, and raped by his Newbishops and presbyters?
Begoglio has hardly acknowledged the problem. In three months of his Newpapacy, he has dismissed not a single Newbishop or Newcardinal over the matter, continuing Benedict-Ratzinger's "perfect" record of doing nothing against his Newbishop and Newcardinal "buddies." It seems that "Mr. Humble" has become "Mr. Cover-up," the Third Paedophile Pope, to succeed JPII-Wojtyla and Benedict-Ratzinger, the third of these accomplices to child rape. It was their New Order sect, remember, who changed the traditional Confiteor into the Novus Ordo version, referring to "what I have done, and what I have failed to do." Well, these Paedophile Newpopes have certainly failed to do anything, by their own definition committing innumerable Mortal Sins of Omission. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Vatican Radio.]
Good Catholics, we see again how in this Newchurch of the New Order, the Newpopes are "all talk and no action." The Head of the Pontifical Gregorian University Centre for Child Protection pleaded for "patience and perseverance." I wonder how the child-victims, who have waited patiently for decades, think about that statement! After twelve years the Head says that Newpope's Centre is still in the "pilot stage." That statement is laughable. Twelve years have passed, and Newchurch is still in the "pilot stage"!
Bergoglio and his ilk are simply telling the children to get ready to be assaulted again, and again, and again. There is nothing "Catholic" about these Newchurch leaders, from the Newpope on down. It was Pope St. Pius V who got it right. When confronted with reports that some of his clergy were engaging in sodomy -- and this was with other adults -- he wrote a terse Bull saying that such people were not priests and should be handed over the civil government for the severest of punishments.
The Head of the Bergoglio's Center talked at length of all the bureaucratic procedures that were supposedly being established. Such procedures are a cover-up. When Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust burst into the media in 2001 under the aegis of Newcardinal Josef Ratzinger, a "zero tolerance" policy was announced. Why is it, then, that independent annual audits since then show the crimes on the part of Newchurch clergy increasing, not decreasing?!
David Cameron's British government is trying to ram through the British parliament a bill recognizing "gay" marriage. Cameron is typical of most political conservatives. Whereas they may be tough on crime and economically penurious, when it comes to morals, they take their cue from the pagan liberalists rather their supposed Lord Jesus Christ. The bill authorizing the "gay" abomination, which is Biblically considered one of the Four Sins that Cry out to Heaven for Retribution, has already been approved by the House of Commons and is now before the House of Lords.
It appears that the House of Lords might be a tad more moral than the Commons and vote against the bill. In fact, it could be the votes of the 25 Lord-Bishops that could prevent Britain from becoming more of a Sodom that it already is, having already approved "gay" civil unions, which are tantamount to civil marriages. Pressure is being put upon the Anglican bishops not to vote "gay," but the pressure is now coming from Cameron's government, but from Liberalist elements within the Anglican Church itself!
The Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has announced that he opposes the legislation, but emphasized that he does not see the issue as a "religious question." That is a curious position from a supposed "Christian," which is reminiscent of the position of a number of Newchurch cardinals and bishops. A bill that contradicts one of the universal tenets of Natural Law (not merely religious law), a bill that contradicts statements on the question by Jesus Christ and St. Paul, is "not a religious question"? [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
Good Catholics, the Anglicans, who just a century ago considered themselves "Catholics," now recognize sodomy, divorce/remarriage, contraception, and abortion. Will the Newchurch of the New Order headquartered at Newrome be far behind? Although Newchurch's de jure moral teaching has not yet been changed, its de facto teaching has been changed, through the statements and actions of its Newcardinals and Newishops, who stage "Gay" Messes, advocate "gay" civil unions, give the Novus Ordo cookie to the divorced/remarried, overlook contraception, and pay for abortions for their Newdiocesan employees. Newchurch has already Protestantized its Mess and "sacraments" to invalidity in accordance with the Modernist Vatican II Council's instructions. Will Newchurch's Protestantizing of moral doctrines be far behind?
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Can you tell me which Catholic dogmata have been altered since Vatican II by the New Order Sect?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
If you compare the traditional Roman Catechism (of the Council of Trent) with the 1993 Newcatechism of Vatican II (deceptively called the Catholic Catechism), you will find barely a page that does not differ to one degree or another.
That having been said, the Post-Modernists are too smart to deny openly a doctrine. Rather than denying doctrines directly, as the Modernists did, the Post-Modernists rephrase, water down, "nuance," or use other deceptive techniques to create a New Religion without overtly appearing to do so. Newchurch is the organization that supposedly rejects homosexuality, but whose bishops encourage its acceptance (vide previous Commentaries on bishops in the U.S. and the U.K.), that supposedly rejects abortion, but whose bishops fund it (vide the recent Commentary on Newcardinal Dolan), that supposedly holds Christ to be the path to salvation for all, but preaches that the Jews don't have to accept Christ (vide the recent Commentary on Newcardinal Koch's statement).
Martin Luther, though wrong in many respects, was at least honest enough to declare his differences openly and offer to debate the points publicly. The Modernists at the time of Vatican II (1962-1965) realized that this methodology didn't work because they usually lost the debates! So the Post-Modernists (roughly the Vatican II period and thereafter) decided upon a new tactic: to destroy the Catholic Church from within, to keep the same exteriors, but gut the inside. That way, they were able to keep the money and property and turn it to their own unCatholic purposes. Don't forget that the work of Hannibal Bugnini, the chief architect of the invalid New Order Mess and "sacraments," was highly praised in an extant note from the Grand Master of the Freemasons of Rome.
Look at the different methodologies of the Modernists and Post-Modernists much as the methods by which bacteria and viruses work in the human body. Bacteria destroy the body's structures, yet antibiotics will destroy the bacteria. Viruses, on the other hand, enter the very mechanism of the cell and pervert it to become a factory to reproduce more viruses. There are very few anti-virals to repel them. That is what the Newchurch of the New Order did after Vatican II: it took over the external mechanism of the Church and perverted it to become a factory to reproduce its own heretical teachings. Many "Catholics" who simply wanted to "get along" were satisfied with the sham Church because it didn't demand that they stand up uncompromisingly for Christ as their predecessors had.
The Post-Modernists of the New Order Sect devised a very clever stratagem, which has been successful in almost destroying the Catholic Church, execpt for one thing: viruses are lethal. The heretical viruses that Newchurch unleashed boomeranged to begin killing Newchurch itself. It is as if the evil Novus Ordo scientist carelessly broke the vial filled with deadly viruses and thereby killed himself.
Newchurch is undeniably dying. Attendance at its invalid "New Mess" has declined in most places to less than 10 per cent and is still falling. Its invalid "sacraments" are down: baptisms, confessions, confirmations, marriages, extreme unction (which no longer exists). Its Newclergy have sunk to the worst depravities, in some cases more than one in ten Newbishops and presbyters having sexually assaulted or raped at least one child. And now even Newpope makes public theological errors, which are obvious even to non-Catholics (vide the Commentary on atheists and salvation)!
In less than a week, Francis-Bergoglio has dealt a second blow to traditional Catholics. On May 28, 2013, he had already called them "extremists." On June 1, 2013, he received the Newbishop-Traitor to traditional Catholicism, Areas Rifan, of Campos, Brazil.
Since Vatican II (1962-1965), traditional Bishop Antonio de Castro Mayer had forbidden the invalid Novus Ordo Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service to be performed his diocese of Campos, one of the largest in Brazil. Mayer was so fearless that Newvatican was too afraid to touch him, so the Novus Ordo remained banned in Campos until de Castro Mayers' retirement in 1981 at age 75.
When Newvatican attempted to impose the invalid Novus Ordo Mess under the new bishop, 36 priests and 40,000 faithful walked out and followed Bishop de Castro Mayer into the Society of St. John Vianney in public resistance to the unCatholic Newchurch of the New Order. His priests were banished from the Novus Ordo churches, ostracized, and physically threatened, yet they courageously built their own traditional churches, chapels, and missions, and continued their ministry to traditional Catholics. In 1983, de Castro-Mayer co-signed the letter with Abp. Lefebvre publicly condemning the errors of Vatican II.
After traditional bishop Bishop de Castro Mayer died in 1991, one month after traditional Archbishop Lefebvre, Licinio Rangel gained control of the SSJV and, in 2002, connived with Newchurch to sell out the Society to the New Order sect. At the same time Rangel stabbed in the back the Society of St. Pius X, three of whose four bishops had consecrated him. Half the traditional Catholic priests and faithful walked out on the traitor Rangel and refused to have anything to do with his now pseudo-traditional society. Rangel went to his Eternal Judgment a few months later, and Newchurch installed its puppet Newbishop, Fernando Areas Rifan, who had been an accomplice in the sellout of de Castro-Mayer's traditional society. When that society was fabricated in 2002, it was supposed to cover all of Brazil, but the Brazilian Newbishops refused to recognize it, so it has been confined to a small part of Campos.
Areas Rifan has taken the now sold-out society, which is far from traditional, even further into the New Order. After 2007 he decreed that "Motu" presbyters cannot simulate only the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II Mess of 1962+, but must also simulate the invalid Full-blown Novus Ordo service in order to be "in communion" with Newchurch. Areas Rifan himself has several times con-celebrated the Novus Ordo Mess publicly. When he later lied in an effort to try to deny that fact, press videos were broadcasted to prove that the Newchurch bishop was a liar. Areas Rifan's "installer" was Newcardinal Dario Castrillon-Hoyos, who was later exposed as a paedophile facilitator and sent into forced retirement. There he shocked the world by revealing that he had been put up to his support of paedophile Newbishops and presbyters by none other than Benedict-Ratzinger himself!
Areas Rifan is a Benedict Arnold, who pretended to be "traditional" when JPII-Wojtyla needed a ringer to suppress traditional Catholicism in Campos, Brazil. It is this Novus Ordo catspaw whom Francis-Bergoglio received on June 1, 2013. As yet, Francis-Bergoglio has not summoned his New Order-bent lap-dog, Bernie Fellay, to Newrome to kiss the papal boot. Newpopes just love to jerk around these pseudo-traditional curs around by the chain. And do they ever deserve it for their perfidy and hypocrisy to the traditional Catholic Faith!

After Francis-Bergoglio's recent theological faux-pas about atheists and Heaven in his General Audience of May 29, 2013, Newpope clearly needs a thorough re-education in the doctrines and principles of Catholic theology. But he's not going to get it. Instead, Newvatican has announced that it will deal with Bergoglio's theological errors in same way that it has dealt with its Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust: by using the cover-up! Newvatican announced on May 31, 2013, that it will henceforth not publish the full text of Bergoglio's weekday "homilies," in order to avoid the embarrassment to Newchurch of his theological incompetence. Only his Sunday "homilies," which are written by Newvatican authorities, will be published.
The Newvatican press secretary, Federico Lombardi, has even invented a spurious "cover story" for this embarrassing situation. Lombardi stated that Bergoglio is linguistically incompetent in Italian, the language in which he delivers his "homilies" -- "a language [Bergoglio] knows well, but which is not his mother tongue." Lombardi did not explain why this is the case, given the fact that both of Bergoglio's parents were Italian! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
Apparently, what Newvatican is saying is that Bergoglio's theological errors are based in the fact that he can't speak Italian well, even though that is the language he uses every day in Newrome and is the language that his parents spoke. A more perverted logic is hard to imagine.
Andrew Greeley has died in Chicago, Illinois, on May 29, 2013. In 2008 his public career ended when he stepped out of a taxi, caught his coat in the door, and, as the taxi pulled away, was thrown to the pavement and cracked his skull.
Like many in the schizophrenic Newchurch of the New Order, Greenley was a man full of irrational contradictions. A presbyter who rejected Catholic doctrine. A critic of Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust who wrote pornography. An advocate of priestesses for Newchurch who disparaged women by making them sex objects in his novels. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Washington Post.]
The Italian newspaper Il Foglio reported on May 28, 2013, that Italian bishop Dominico Padovano denounced to Francis-Bergoglio traditionalist Catholics as "creating within [New]church a work of division by defending" the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II "Motu" Mess of 1962. Other Italian bishops joined with Padovano in asking Bergoglio to revoke the "Motu" of 2007 deigning to allow that Mess to be used in "extraordinary" circumstances with very strict limitations.
According to Padovano, Bergoglio told him to "be careful with the extremisms of certain traditionalist groups" and wants tradition to "live with innovation."
Consequently, the former President of the Liturgical Committee of the Italian Episcopal Conference, Newbishop Felice di Molfetta, wrote to his Newdiocese that he liked Bergoglio's scaling back the Mess to a simplified Vatican II style: "I did not fail to rejoice with the pope for the style of celebration that he has taken up, a style inspired by the 'noble simplicity' determined by the [Vatican II] Council..., an 'emancipated' liturgical life." In 2007 Molfetta was one of the most combative critics of the "Motu" Mess and has remained so, together with other Italian Newbishops, considering that even the "Motu" Mess, untraditional as it is, is "incompatible" with the full-blown (and invalid) Novus Ordo Mess of 1969.
Good Catholics, this shot across the bow of the "Motu" Mess is certain to be only the first of many. Traditional Catholics should not be supporting it anyway, but looking not to this Half Novus Ordo Vatican II Mess, but the Traditional Latin Mass. It remains to be seen whether Bergoglio will revoke the short-lived "Motu" Mess outright, or just allow it to sink into oblivion -- probably the latter.
Bernie Fellay, the tyrannical leader of the Neo-SSPX, must be ruing the day that he ever attempted the perfidy of selling out Archbishop Lefebvre's once traditional organization to the unCatholic New Order Sect. Not only have 100 of his priests already left him (about one-sixth of his entire clergy), but now a new publication by his former clergy and members to contest his abandonment of traditional Catholicism has been released.
Taking their cue from the martyrs for traditional Catholicism during the reign of the English King Henry VIII and his successors, a group of Neo-SSPX clergy and laity who have separated from Fellay because of his desire to sell out to the unCatholic Newchurch of the New Order has founded a new anti-Fellay publication aptly titled The Recusant. This name was applied to those who "recused" themselves from the heretical Church of England founded by that king.
The new publication has been described as "fighting a guerrilla war for the soul of Tradition." The Recusants have declared this now open "guerrilla war" in a signed Letter of Entreaty dated May 21, 2013, which attacks Bernie Fellay and his Neo-SSPX in no uncertain terms. It charges Fellay's Neo-SSPX with "having deviated from its essential mission of fidelity to Catholic Tradition and opposition to Modernism due to the betrayal of its liberal leadership." The Recusants argue in their letter that Neo-SSPXers must secede from Fellay's corrupted society and must boycott Fellay's upcoming "conferences" in England, whose purpose is to impose his pro-Novus Ordo regime even more firmly. They describe Fellay's Neo-SSPX as a "sinking ship, which is beyond repair."
This public denunciation by former Neo-SSPXers has caught Fellay and his lieutenants with their cassocks down. They are now desperately trying to recreate history by claiming that Fellay was never negotiating a sellout of Archbishop Lefebvre's traditional Catholic society and that he has never accepted the New Mass. Both of the contentions are flatly contradicted by Fellay's own public statements at the time. To this date, Fellay has never condemned the "New Mess," a Protestant-Masonic-Pagan fabrication of the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, as invalid. Moreover, when his own French Dominican theologians concluded that Bugnini's New Ordinal, under which Novus Ordo presbyters and Newbishops have been installed since 1969, Fellay ordered the monograph suppressed, and selected another writer to argue for their validity.
Good Catholics, what goes around, comes around. Fellay, like the tyrant that he is, attempted to play the Judas by selling out his own consecrator, Archbishop Lefebvre, and the Archbishop's traditional Catholic principles to the unCatholic sect that the Archbishop called "Modernist Rome." When many of Fellay's lieutenants indicated severe reservations about such action, Fellay expelled them and damned their names. Now some 100 of his priests, together with their congregations, have abandoned Fellay. His profligate plan for a new "Tower of Babel" seminary in Virginia in the United States are running into serious opposition and financial shortfall. Fellay has had to sponsor "conferences" to issue desperate pleas for his decimated flock to continue their support for the project. It seems that with growing opposition to his policies and methods, Fellay is rapidly heading for his own Cannae.
When will it be shown in the mainstream media that the Newchurch of the New Order is no longer Catholic and that Catholicism no longer is emanating from Newrome and that the true Catholic Church exists only in traditional Catholic churches, oratories, and chapels? These issues are so obvious, but the public seems to have no idea that the modern Newchurch was gutted fifty years ago with Vatican II. The public is falsely led to believe by the mainstream media that the New Order Sect is Catholic rather than the empty shell that it really is?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
The "mainstream media" will never recognize traditional Catholicism, partly because of ignorance, partly because institutions only recognize other institutions, and partly because of a pronounced Modernistic/Liberalists bias. All of this was most obviously demonstrated in the case of Bishop Richard Williamson, then of the Neo-SSPX. When in 2009 he made an offhand comment about a detail of a disputed point of secular history, the so-called holocaust of World War II, every article in the mainstream media dubbed him a "holocaust denier," even though his statement did not deny the holocaust. That phrase is now consistently used every time his name is mentioned in the mainstream media, which sees things only through its self-imposed liberalist blinders. Objective coverage would have indicated that there are historians and many others who share Williamson's viewpoint rather than the "received" viewpoint.
Typically, in such mainstream-media articles, you will see gross violations of the basic rule of journalism that facts should be reported as objectively as possible without bias in news reporting (as opposed to commentary). Yet, when it comes to traditional Catholicism, the media consistently use biased and non-objective vocabulary: "renegade," "rebellious," "ultra-traditional," and the like.
But "when one door is shut, the other openeth," according to the proverb. The "mainstream media" have become not so mainstream any longer, and their audience has fallen precipitously in the two decades. Many audiences now prefer to consult the independent media, such as the TRADITIO Network, which has now been on the internet for nineteen years, longer than another other traditional medium, and has remained throughout that time courageously independent, kowtowing neither to Newchurch's paedophile Newpopes, Newbishops, and presbyters, on the one hand, nor to pseudo-traditional tyrants like the Neo-SSPX's Bernie Fellay, on the other hand.
