Is Francis-Bergoglio, who has previously admitted to mental instability, sinking into dementia? At his final "Beach Mess," on July 27, 2013, Bergoglio criticized the revered intellectual history of Catholicism. This man, who absented himself a performance of the great Ninth Symphony of Beethoven in his honor, who has made public errors in Catholic doctrine, and who has watered down to oblivion what little is left of Catholicism into mindless slogans, has made the New Order sect just as simplistic as the Pentecostalists and Evangelicals that he jabs at. Well, at least they read the Bible.
Bergoglio ridiculed the "intellectual" message that his predecessor, Benedict-Ratzinger, delivered. Bergoglio claimed that Newchurchers were too dumb to understand "lofty" ideas. He criticized Ratzinger for importing an "intellectualism foreign to our people." No doubt Bergoglio is too dumb to understand!
The next day, July 28, 2013, on the flight back from Brazil, Bergoglio held a press conference aboard the plane, in which he caused further scandal. In the context of discussing his paedophile presbyters, Bergoglio said: "A gay person who is seeking God, who is of good will -- well, who am I to judge him?" Bergoglio tried to distinguish between "gay people" and "gay lobbies," but it was obvious even to the journalists aboard the plane that he did not condemn homosexuality, sodomy, and paedophilia. Apparently, in Bergoglio's unCatholic mind, it's not morally objectionable to be a sodomite "if you seek the Lord" while doing so.
Benedict-Ratzinger issued a document in 2005 decreeing that men with deep-rooted homosexual tendencies should not be installed as Newchurch presbyters. In traditional Catholic theology, homosexuality is an impediment to Holy Orders. Bergoglio, however, indicated that "gay" presbyters should be forgiven and that their sins, presumably including sodomy of children, should be forgotten. Here, again, Bergoglio has signally strayed from the commandments of God, under which sodomy and oppression of children are two of the traditional Four Sins that Cry out to God for Retribution. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
On July 24, 2013, a Bolivian judge ordered a Newchurch presbyter jailed in the theft of the jewelry with which the faithful had adorned the venerated statue of the country's patron saint, the Virgin of Copacabana, in Newchurch's Basilica of Our Lady of Copacabana. The presbyter's accomplice was the female owner of a hostel where the presbyter was lodged when the jewels disappeared on April 22, 2013.
The sacrilegious presbyter slipped the Newchurchers on the Newbasilica staff a mickey so that they were passed out while he and his female accomplice stripped the jewels off the statue, which was carved in 1580 and worth an estimated 1,000,000 U.S. dollars. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
Good Catholics, truly did Our Lord Jesus Christ characterize these corrupt Newchurch clergy when He condemned their ilk, proclaiming: "My house shall be a house of prayer; but you have made it a den of robbers" (Luke 19:46/DRV). A better description of the perverted and unCatholic Newchurch of Francis-Bergoglio cannot be conceived!
The hypocrisy of the post Vatican II Newpopes, like Pinnochio's nose, just grows and grows. On July 25, 2013, Francis-Bergoglio told the youth at his World Youth Day rave that they should make a "mess" by going out into the streets to spread the faith rather than becoming "simply a civic or humanitarian group."
But this is exactly what the hypocritical Bergoglio himself is doing! In four months Bergoglio has stripped out what little remains of the Catholic Faith in his New Order sect. He himself is so ignorant of the Faith that he has made egregious errors of doctrine in his "homilies," to the point that his own Vatican Radio won't publish exact transcripts of his "homilies." It is just too embarrassing. Bergoglio doesn't have even as much knowledge of the Catholic Faith as a traditional seven-year-old preparing for his First Communion!
Instead, Bergoglio, the consummate Newjesuit, has resorted to that post-Vatican II Order's Socialistic/Communistic "Liberation Theology." He has stripped away all Catholic doctrine and made his New Order sect into a "civic and humanitarian group" -- and a Socialistic/Communistic one at that. Next Bergoglio will probably be advocating that Newchurch youth take up shotguns with the Newjesuits and kill all the conservative Latins, the way the Newjesuits did in the 1960s. The famed author, Fr. Malachi Martin, who was once a (traditional) Jesuit himself, was so outraged by what his Order had become that he petitioned for release from it and became a noted traditional Catholic author and speaker condemning the Newjesuits and Newchurch.
Bergoglio, the phony "Mr. Humble," has been cleverly building a personality cult around himself. You never hear about Our Lord Jesus Christ and His teaching any longer. Christ did not preach Socialist/Communist action focused on social programs for the poor. Quite the opposite. What Christ really said was: "For the poor you have always with you; but me you have not always" (John 12:8/DRV).
It seems that Bergoglio is trying to steal some of Teresa of Calcutta's thunder by becoming the "slum Newpope." Like Teresa, Bergoglio's faith is not Catholic, but some syncretistic parody of Catholicism. Teresa went around preaching a kind of Hinduism. Bergoglio goes around preaching a kind of Socialism/Communism. Bergoglio preaches the kind of unChristian faith that arose during the 1960s, in which the theme was "social justice." Christ did not speak of social justice, but of an individual's relationship with God. There isn't one single passage in the Gospels in which He is quoted as saying anything about government or politics. He calls on the individual to get right his relationship with God, not with man.
Bergoglio is trying to make himself the Pentecostalist Pope. Even the secular and religious press admit this. Why be half-baked New Order when you can be fully Pentecostal, wave your hands in the air, and dance with snakes, as the Pentecostalists do? Bergoglio's false sect is losing money and fan(atic)s hand over fist to the Latin American Pentecostalists and Evangelicals. Bergoglio, to keep his power, has got to get them back. So he has to make himself the Pentecostalist Pope. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
Good Catholics, beware of the "false Christs" that Bergoglio and his Modernistic predecessors are creating -- one that serves man, not God. This is the religion of "our buddy Jesus," not that of Our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, Judge of the Living and the Dead. Bergoglio's is a phony religion, surely not Catholic. But you know that. Christ predicted exactly the False Christ we see in Bergoglio. In fact, Christ's characterization couldn't be any more clear about the present Newpope:
Then if any man shall say to you: Lo here is Christ, or there, do not believe him. For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect. Behold I have told it to you, beforehand.
Is God Himself speaking to the world the truth about this man and his false New Order sect in the recent disasters that have occurred? Bergoglio's World Youth Day Mess was rained out by torrential floods. And, on July 24, 2013, a disastrous trainwreck occurred in Spain, killing some 80 people and seriously injuring hundreds more. What the press didn't tell you is that:
Voice Of Bombay reports that Newchurch is killing Benedict-Ratzinger's "Motu" Mess of 1962+ in India's most populous city. Currently there are two "Motu" Messes in Bombay, but only on a monthly basis. A third was added only with great difficulty from Newcardinal Oswald Gracias, the Newarchbishop of Bombay and Francis-Bergoglio's Asian Privy Councillor on the Gang of 8 that Bergoglio appointed to run Newchurch with him.
Gracias has not permitted the introduction of Latin into his Bombay Novus Ordo seminary. The few presbyters who are competent to celebrate the "Motu" Mess are afraid to do so because they fear that Gracias will transfer them to India's remotest regions if they do so. Gracias' Newbishop auxiliary emeritus has a deadly hatred against the "Motu" Mess and has destroyed the careers of presbyters attempting the "Motu" Mess, whom he calls "lunatics." One of these presbyters ran off to the United States, one took a sabbatical, two left to marry, and one joined a Pentecostal sect. One priest/presbyter who left Fellay's Neo-SSPX to join the New Order sect is too afraid to attempt a "Motu" Mess.
Pity the poor Indians! All this travail for not even the Traditional Latin Mass, but the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II "Motu" Mess of 1962+. There may, however, be sites that offer truly Traditional Latin Masses.

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Vatican Radio transmitted the news on July 23, 2013: Francis "the Flake" Bergoglio is the first Newpope to perform a "Beach Mess," to the hysterical reaction of the youth who lounged around Copacabana Beach. The "Beach Mess" was also a "Balloon Mess," marked by giant hydrogen balloons floating in the air.
Vatican Radio's own reporter was at least honest enough to describe Bergoglio's extravaganza as "Woodstock," the drug- and sex-crazed festival held in New York in 1969, and as a "beach party." Before attending Bergoglio's Mess, the Novus Ordo youths grabbed their caipirinhas, a hard-liquor drink popular in Brazil, then headed out to Rio de Janeiro's Copacabana Beach for the Bergoliolesque Mess. Many of the youth "worshipped" at Bergoglio's Mess by rolicking in the waves.
Past World Youth Days have featured sex and drugs in the stands of the Newpapal Messes, complete with condoms bearing the face of the Newpope. This Woodstock was no different -- except that the beach setting made Mortal these Sins even easier! Think of it: a Newchurch "Mess" that leads youth to Hell. Not exactly what Christ intended, is it?
Even more hypocritical was the fact that at his July 24, 2013, Mess, coyly held at the Novus Ordo Basilica of the Shrine of Our Lady of Aparecida, Bergoglio urged Newchurchers "to resist the 'ephemeral idols' of money, power and pleasure." This from Newpope who deceitfully poses as "Mr. Humble" while he has not lifted a finger to stop his presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals from resisting the power and pleasure that is involved in raping and sodomizing children as young as six months of age.
Good Catholics, you may wonder why Bergoglio is making this big P.R. push now. Money and power, of course -- the very things that Bergoglio condemns! Large numbers of Newchurchers in Latin America have turned their back on the phony New Order sect and have been bled off into Evangelical and Pentecostal sects. Thus, Bergoglio's power and money are sinking like the Biblical mill-stone. He wants to scheme to get it back, just as Benedict-Ratzinger perpetrated the "Latin Mass" Hoax upon the Neocon Newchurchers and pseudo-traditional Newchurchers, who cluelessly accepted his Half New Order "Motu" Mess of 1962+ of the Modernist Vatican II Council, which they claim they reject!
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
What Newpope decided to allow the Novus Ordo Mess on Saturday afternoon for Newchurchers and for what reason? Isn't this practice in grave contravention of the Third Commandment of God to "keep holy the Lord's Day"?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.Paul VI-Montini was responsible for the Saturday afternoon "Golf Mess" in 1967. At the time, it was explained as being closer to the Jewish practice, because the Jews celebrate their Sabbath from sundown on Friday to sundown on Saturday. Newchurch then, as now, was trying to become closer to the Jews, by importing Jewish prayers into the Novus Ordo Mess; by beginning to teach, contrary to the Scriptures and the Apostles, that the Jews did not have to accept Christ as their Messias; and by other deviations from Catholic and Apostolic doctrine and practice.
At the time, this Saturday Mess acquired the derisive name "Golf Mass" (of course, we know that the Novus Ordo service is not really a Mass at all), because its practical purpose was to allow Newchurchers to worship on the Jewish Sabbath (Saturday) rather than the Lord's Day (Sunday). In that way, Newchurchers could chose to "take off" the Lord's Day and use it not for anything holy, but for non-religious activities, such as golf.
This unCatholic, Jewish-insired "Saturday Mess" is just another example of how the New Order sect has abandoned not only Catholicism, but even basic Christianity, in violently contradicting the Commandment to "keep holy the Lord's Day," which, according to the Scriptures, is Sunday in the New Covenant. The New Testament indicates that the Apostles deliberately changed the day of worship from the Jewish Sabbath (Saturday) to the first day of the week, to indicate clearly that the Old Jewish Covenant was superseded in the New Covenant of Christ.

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
What was wrong with the pre-Vatican II Catholics in the 1960s? The Traditional Latin Mass focused their worship on the presence of the Lord in the tabernacle on the altar. The New Mess came along and took away the tabernacle and the altar, sometimes taking the tabernacle away from the sanctuary completely. Didn't anybody notice that something was missing? Like the Eucharistic presence of Our Lord? Were the pre-Vatican II Catholics so clueless as to what Catholicism is about? Why did so many Catholics put up with this?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Mainly two things allowed for the inconceivable substitution of an invalid Protestantized service for the true and valid Traditional Latin Mass. First, the changes were introduced gradually over a period of six years -- or really a period of fourteen years if you count the Protestantizing changes that were made before before 1962 -- since 1955, in fact, when the Protestantizing "modernizations" of the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini began to be introduced. For further information, click on the TRADITIO Network's Traditional Latin Mass, Divine Office & Sacraments department in the section "The Descent into the Black Hole of the New Order."
If the full-blown Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service of 1969 had been introduced all at once in 1963, there would have been significantly more resistance, as there had been in the England of Henry VIII, then to the point of war. The frog of true Catholicism was not boiled all of a sudden, but was gradually warmed until the frog died of heat stroke.
Secondly, Catholics were in the habit of obeying the clergy. The Modernists were shrewd enough to use apparent (but not real) authority to push the New Mess abomination through. The argument that Paul VI-Montini approved the New Mess (which was not completely true) was used as a powerful cudgel by the Modernists. No one told Catholics that several popes had been heretics and that traditional theologians for more than a millenium had explicitly taught that a pope who attempted to change the Mass in any significant way was to be regarded as a schismatic and was not be followed in his schism. The Newchurch bishops' own statistics show that one-third of Catholics walked out and never came back when the invalid New Mess was introduced into parishes in 1970. For further information, click on POPELIM.TXT: Limitations of Papal Authority to Change Sacred Tradition, From the Writings of Roman Catholic Popes, Councils, Saints, and Theologians.
But rather than wondering what happened in the 1960s, it would be more appropriate to ask what is happening now. The same thing, really. The Neocons, Motarians, and pseudo-traditionalists of the 21st century have bought into Benedict-Ratzinger's 2007 "Motu" Mess of 1962+ fraud, in which they have accepted with open arms the Half New Order Vatican II service, just as the Trojans accepted the horse -- and as a result Troy was destroyed. The number of these 21st-century pseudo-traditionalists includes Bernie Fellay and his Neo-SSPX, which has yet to reject, without reservation, Bugnini's New Mess as the invalid and unCatholic service that it is. Bernie wants it both ways, but he can't have it both ways -- at least if he wants to pretend to be a Catholic.
Moreover, these pseudo-traditionalists do not seem to have any problem with the fact that the men who are "performing" the "Motu" Mess of 1962+ are not priests, but Novus Ordo presbyters, who have never been validly ordained, but have merely been "installed" under Bugnini's invalid Protestantized Ordinal of 1968 "to preside over the assembly of the people." As unordained presbyters, they have no Sacramental power to offer a valid Mass "for the living and the dead" -- "Motu" or otherwise.
The Encyclical Letter, Lumen fidei, which Francis-Bergoglio released on July 5, 2013, has gone virtually unnoticed; it is as a non-event. Usually, a pope's first Encyclical Letter would be a topic of intense discussion. This one wasn't -- even in view of the fact that for the first time in history it was jointly written by a pope and a co-pope. It was barely mentioned by the international secular and religious press.
If one especially reads the official Latin version, it is clear that that two hands were involved: the sesquipedalian Ratzinger, who fusses over words, and the slovenly Bergoglio, who falls into errors because of the sloppiness of his language.
Bergoglio devotes seven paragraphs (8-14) to "Abraham, Our Father in Faith" and "The Faith of Israel," continuing Ratzinger's consistent pandering to the Jews, and even trying to find an alternative path of salvation for them, in order that they don't have to accept Christ as their Messias. The erroneous teaching is an offshot of the flawed theology of the Modernist Vatican II Council. This section was clearly written by the Judaeophile Ratzinger.
In paragraph 52 of the 60 paragraphs, Bergoglio and Ratzinger get around to the statement: "I think first and foremost of the stable union of man and woman in marriage." What a proclamation! "I think" (actually the authentic Latin uses the royal we: Cogitemus.) Although the press characterized this one sentence as "restating the Church's opposition to 'gay' marriage," it is hardly that. There is here no explicit statement of Catholic doctrine. No explicit condemnation of the moral topic of the day, "gay" marriage and its associated perversions: lesbianism, bisexuality, transgenderism, transsexuality, transvestitism, beastiality, and all the rest. The style of paragraph 52, together with paragraph 55 supporting the "Green God," reeks more of the simplistic Bergoglio than of the ponderous Ratzinger.
Good Catholics, Bergoglio's first Encyclical Letter is more of a ho-hum than usual. In post-Conciliar times, these encyclicals have become vapid puff-pieces. Better to throw them out and study a traditional Catholic catechism!
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I have heard that Archbishop Lefebvre signed several of the documents of the Modernist Vatican II Council? Is this true?
Archbishop Lefebvre himself explained his often misunderstood "signature" as follows. "The approving or refusing of documents was obviously carried for each Council document on its own. The vote was secret, performed on individual cards, and done with a special pencil which made possible the electronic counting of votes. The cards were picked up by the secretaries from the hand of each Bishop voting. The large sheets which circulated from hand to hand among the Council Fathers, and where each one put his signature had no meaning for or against any of the documents, but merely signified our presence at that voting session for the four documents."
Even though the balloting itself was secret, the Archbishop publicly expressed his vehement protest against many of the Conciliar documents in whole or in part. These included Nostra aetate [Non-Christian Religions], Gaudium et spes [The Church in the Modern World], and Dignitatis humanae [Religious Liberty].
Italy's largest-circulating daily newspaper, La Repubblica, has reported that Newvatican has been left with egg on its face after a loophole was discovered in the new criminal laws for the Vatican City State that was announced by Francis-Bergoglio on July 18, 2013. It appears that Bergoglio has, perhaps unwittingly, perhaps not, made the reporting of sex crimes by presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals a criminal offense, equivalent to leaks to the press.
According to Bergoglio's new laws, revealing or receiving confidential information is now punishable by up to two years in prison. Because all sex crimes by Bergoglio's presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals are kept confidential within Newvatican, there is no longer a legal way for Newvatican officials to report sex crimes legally to the police.
The obviously-embarrassed Newvatican Secretary for Relations with States, Newarchbishop Dominique Mamberti, claimed that Bergoglio didn't intend this consequence of his new laws. Mamberti said that elimination of the loophole was being looked at, but warned that because Newvatican moves at a snail's pace, no remedial action should be expected too soon.
However, a columnist for La Repubblica poopooed all of this as just posturing by Bergoglio. He wrote that Bergoglio was really hoping that no one would notice the loophole. Bergoglio's purpose was simply to "appear" to be getting tough on his Newclergy's sex crimes against children while not actually doing anything. In this, Bergoglio is simply following Co-Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger's policy: "All talk and no action."
Good Catholics, in just the four months since Francis "The Flake" Bergoglio was elected, already his Newpapacy has degenerated into public buffoonery. He has made errors in Catholic theology. He has not shown up at official functions. He has appointed a flaming "gay" prelate who is a customer of boy-prostitutes as Prefect of the Vatican Bank. Now his "infallible" laws involve serious errors. Bergoglio himself admits that he is "too disorganized" to handle personally the most serious issues facing his Newchurch. Maybe Bergoglio can't get his Catholic theology right, but he sure got that right!
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
We have been attending a traditional Catholic site for about one year. We left a few months ago because.... [There follows fourteen paragraphs detailing social slights over which the writer obsesses from not having Christmas cards returned to the priest not remembering her name.]
A standard answer is: "Come for God, not people." Ah, this is so true. But it gets hurtful and depressing.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
You finally answered your own question in your fifteenth paragraph: "Come for God, not people." These little human frictions exist in every group. Your letter indicates, in all honesty, an excess concern for what, in the end, are trivialities.
You are so blessed to have the true Traditional Latin Mass and Sacraments available to you outside the New Order sect. That you would consider cutting yourself off from these because of social trifles is sad. We Fathers know so many Catholics who literally cry over the fact that such a traditional Catholic site is located nowhere near them. All the "social stuff" you can get elsewhere: with your family, your friends, your job, your community. The Mass and Sacraments you can get nowhere else.
Instead of being so self-focused, consider the life of your Lord Jesus Christ, Who should be your Model in this as in everything. He suffered this kind of thing far more than you ever could. Many of the Jews hated Him. Many of the Romans hated Him. He couldn't rely on the loyalty even of his closest friends. His appointed leader, Peter, denied him not once but thrice -- under oath. He was thrown out of the synagogue, persecuted, and finally crucified.
We Fathers would suggest that you pray God for more gratitude for the great gift of the true Mass and Sacraments that He has given you. Whenever you feel inclined to let such social trifles bother you, look up at that Crucifix and say the prayer, after St. Matthew 11:20: Iesu, mitis et humilis corde, fac cor nostrum secundum Cor tuum [O Jesus, meek and humble of heart, make my heart like unto Thine].
What if you claimed to be "traditionalist," but sold out to the New Order Sect? What would happen to you? Our case in point is the pseudo-traditional Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), in whom the pseudo-traditionalists placed such hope in 1988. On June 30 of that year, the unbelievably-courageous traditional Catholic Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre proceeded with the consecration of four traditional Catholic bishops when JPII-Wojtyla and his henchman, Card. Josef Ratzinger, were trying to kill traditional Catholicism once and for all by depriving it of more bishops to supplement the existing number of traditional Catholic bishops.
Archbishop Lefebvre was Pope Pius XII's Apostolic Delegate to West Africa and was Superior General of the Congregation of the Holy Ghost, one of the largest missionary organizations in the Church. The last thing that Wojtyla and Ratzinger expected was that the archbishop would in the end stand uncompromisingly by the traditional Catholic Faith and throw their Modernist selves under the bus!
The Archbishop's action threw Newvatican into a panic. Wojtyla and Ratzinger hadn't expected this. A document was hastily hobbled together, called Ecclesia Dei, which purported to establish the possibility of a pseudo-traditional offshoot within the flaming Modernist New Order sect. The Fraternity of St. Peter was hastily pieced together to perform an "Indult" Mess. The pseudo-traditionalists, who were too cowardly to stand up for the traditional Catholic Faith as had the Archbishop, were deliriously happy -- but not for long.
Now, 25 years later, in a story that has been repeated in the case of all the pseudo-traditional organizations that became a part of the New Order sect -- the Society of St. John Vianney, the Institute of Christ the King, and especially the Fraternity of St. Peter--, the hypocrisy of these "traditional" organizations who chose to become part of the Modernist New Order sect are dead or dying.
Because it was never the intention of Wojtyla and Ratzinger for the FSSP to succeed, the Fraternity in the United States was moved from Scranton, Pennsylvania, to Denton, Nebraska, and placed under the watchful eye there of Newbishop Fabian Bruskewitz, who was known for marching in the Masonic parade and turning over his Newcathedral for Methodist consecrations. From that point, the fate of the FSSP was sealed. It remains in a few places, but has not significantly grown since its first few years. It has since implemented, at various of its sites, all the worst of the Novus Ordo Mess -- concelebration, communion in the hand, use of the vulgar tongues -- and even performs the full-blown Novus Ordo Mess on special occasions, such as Maundy Thursday.
In 2007 the FSSP tried to ride the crest -- low and brief -- of Benedict-Ratzinger's "Motu" Mess, the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II Mess engineered by the Freemason presbyer Hannibal Bugnini. The FSSP announced one-day "seminars," in which the presbyter-students would learn to speak Latin and perform the Mess of 1962+ in a mere eight hours. Thereby the FSSP became a laughing stock, when it was realized that John XXIII, the pope in 1962, had, in his Apostolic Constitution Veterum sapientia of that same year, required 7-9 years of Latin! The FSSP seminars dried up, and the "Motu" Mess itself began to fade away.
Good Catholics, where is the FSSP today? The New Order sect in which the Fraternity chooses to operate, defined by the heretical doctrines and practices inspired by the Modernist Vatican II Council, has long ago turned the FSSP into a band of hypocrites, who sing full throated out of the Novus Ordo hymnal. Rather than saving the traditional Catholic Faith, as they claimed they would do, they joined the New Order sectarians headquartered in Newvatican in their campaign to destroy the traditional Roman Catholic Faith.
On June 6, 2013, Francis-Bergoglio admitted to the press that there was a "gay lobby" within his Newvatican and stated that he was "too disorganized" to do anything about it. On July 15, 2013, it seems that he in fact succumbed to that Newvatican "Gay" Lobby. Bergoglio appointed Monsignore Battista Ricca as his "trusted man" to become Prelate of the Vatican Bank, which technically bears the misleading title Institute of Religious Works. Ricca will have the power to access all of the Bank's proceedings and documents and to attend all of the meetings both of the Newcardinalate Commission of Oversight and of the Bank's Supervisory Board.
When Bergoglio gave in to the "Gay" Lobby, L'Espresso, Italy's main weekly news magazine, splashed the information across the front cover of its July 19, 2013, issue, with the banner title: La Lobby Gay. (No translation is needed.) Monsignore Ricca is a known sodomite. He served at Uruguay's Newpapal nuntiature in 1999 -- Montevideo being just across the Rio del Plata a mere 250 kilometres from Buenos Aires, where Bergoglio was the Newchurch archbishop from 1998. Ricca, as the nuntiature's chargé d'affaires ad interim, gave his "gay" lover, an army captain, a residence in the nuntiature, with a regular position and salary.
As reported by L'Espresso, the intimacy of the relations between Ricca and Captain Haari was so open as to scandalize numerous Newbishops, presbyters, nuns, and laypeople at the nunciature. When a new Newpapal nuncio was appointed at the beginning of 2000, he immediately found the open ménage intolerable and informed the Newvatican authorities about it.
In 2001 Bergoglio's now "trusted man" was beaten up at a "gay" bar and had to be dragged back to the nuntiature. Also in that year the elevator of the nunciature became stuck, and the firemen who responded caught Monsignore Ricca in the elevator car virtually in flagrante delicto with a youth identified by police as a "gay" prostitute. When Ricca was finally forced out of the nuntiature, he left behind his personal luggage, which contained an enormous quantity of condoms and pornographic material.
The "Gay" Lobby in the Newvatican created a new identity for sodomite Monsignore Ricca as an "incorruptible moralizer," which the international press bought -- until L'Espresso exposed the cover-up. Bergoglio had also appointed Ricca as director of the Domus Sanctae Marthae, St. Martha's House, where Bergoglio lives, from which position Ricca is said to have woven an intricate network of "gay connections" with the highest levels of the Newchurch hierarchy all over the world.
Good Catholics, naturally there will be the apologists for Francis "Mr. Humble" Bergoglio, claiming that he did not know anything about the sodomite whom he appointed as his "trusted" Prelate at the Newvatican Bank. Really? Bergoglio and Ricca were contemporaries during the Buenos Aires-Montevideo connection. Ricca has been running a "gay" network under Bergoglio's nose at the Domus Sanctae Marthae, where Bergoglio decided to hide out since his election, instead of occupying the traditional Apostolic Apartments. Thanks to the investigative journalism of L'Espresso, we now know in relation to Newvatican's "Gay" Lobby that, as Pogo used to say: "We have met the enemy, and he is -- Bergoglio!"
We used to think that Francis-Bergoglio was just a Liberalist-Modernist incompetent. Now we are beginning to wonder whether he is deliberately ridiculing the Church of which he is supposed to be the head. Certainly in the first four months of his Newpapacy, he has made it a laughing-stock.
From our Francis "the Flake" file, we report today on Francis-Bergoglio's latest sham. To beef up publicity for his World Youth Day rave to begin on July 22, 2013, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, he has offered a Novus Ordo "indulgence" to Twitter-heads who "follow" him on Twitter, the mindless one-line messaging system. "Follow" is the term used for signing up to get mindless one-line "tweets" from celebrities, who like to boost their numbers in order to increase their personal P.R. It hardly seems to fit in with Bergoglio's "Mr. Humble" image, does it?
World Youth Day, established by the JPII-Wojtyla in 1984, has become known as "Catholic [Sic] Woodstock," because it features Newchurch youth engaging in drugs and sex in the stands, complete with condoms imprinted with the face of the Newpope. Wojtyla was well known for his wacko lifestyle, from "presiding" at Messes featuring bare-breasted women to organizing "Assisi Oecumenical Conferences," at which the Buddha was placed on top of the tabernacle.
Bergoglio's corrupted version of the true Faith has been characterized as handing out indulgences like getting a coffee from a vending machine. Bergoglio makes his predecessor, Alexander VI-Borgia, the so-called "Bad Pope," look like a Saint for using the money that he collected for indulgences to build the new Archbasilica of St. Peter, which still stands as a monument to the Catholic Faith after 500 years.
You're supposed to go to Reconciliation (this is the invalid New Order "sacrament" that replaces the traditional Sacrament of Penance) before you tweet, but recent polls show that only one out of three or four Newchurchers bother to Novus Ordo "reconcile" themselves even once a year.

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Some "conservatives" are calling for a Vatican III to address the Modernist errors that have run rampant since at least the days of Vatican II. Would it even be possible, if such a Council were to be convened, to "bar the door" to the Modernists, or is their power simply too great to overcome at this time?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Obviously, these Neocon Newchurchers have learned nothing from the farce of Vatican II. Originally, Pope John XXIII called that Council in order that the bishops of the Church could acquaint themselves with each other and undertake a few pastoral initiatives -- but explicitly not to touch doctrinal matters.
Instead, the Council, which John had intended to last only 90 days, ran on for three years under two popes! The Council quickly got out of the control of John, who was suffering from stomach cancer and died just eight months after the Council began. John signed not a single document of the Council and is reported by journalist Jean Guitton, a friend of the pope, to have cried out on his deathbed: "Stop the Council! Stop the Council." For further information, click on FAQ08: What Is the Authority of Vatican II?" in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics) department.
The conservative Vatican II that John had envisaged, as indicated by his vetoing of all liberalizing proposals of the similar Italian Council that shortly preceded it, instead became the vehicle for the Modernist fraudsters to take over from the sick pope and to turn the true Church into a Modernist New Order sham.
The passage of 50 years have not smartened up the Neo-con Newchurchers, Motarians, and pseudo-traditionalists. They continue to fall for these shams, such as Benedict-Ratzinger's Half Novus Ordo Vatican II Mess of 1962+, which was engineered by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini to lay the groundwork for ushering in, just seven years later, the Full-blown New Order Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Mess of 1969 -- not a Catholic Mass, but an invalid Protestant (or worse) service.
Francis-Bergoglio's new criminal law for Newvatican, announced on July 18, 2013, has turned out to be soft on paedophiles. Advocates for child victims of his paedophile Newclergy, who have been discovered in his own Newpapal office, denounced Bergoglio as a "tinkerer," who has no real feeling for children, except for P.R. photos. Bergoglio's new law pertains only to 800 workers of the Vatican City State: carpenters, cooks, clerks, office-boys, and the like.
Bergoglio was seen as merely doing some kind of damage control after just two days earlier the United Nations' Committee on the Rights of the Child, to which Newvatican is a signatory, but to which Newvatican has failed to provide the required annual report for 17 years, served a demand on Bergoglio for documents about Newvatican's cover-up of sex crimes by its Newclergy against children as young as six months of age. A hearing is going to be held in Geneva, Switzerland, in January 2014, to cross-examine Bergoglio's Newvatican on the documents.
The sentence for the sale of children, child prostitution, the recruitment of children, sexual violence and sexual acts with children, and the production and possession of child pornography was slightly increased -- to 12 years. Advocates for the child victims denounced Bergoglio's law as an empty P.R. gesture: "This changes virtually nothing. It is precisely the kind of 'feel-good' gesture that Vatican officials have long specialized in: tweaking often-ignored and ineffective internal church abuse guidelines to generate positive headlines, but nothing more."
The child advocates demanded that Bergoglio get real and "actually punish those who conceal and enable abuse." In four months of his Newpapacy, Bergoglio has taken no action whatsoever against his paedophile presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals. The child advocates pointed to the fact that in his new law, Bergoglio seemed more concerned with beefing up penalties for any Newatican official caught stealing or leaking official documents. Bergoglio's new penalties for leaking are far more severe. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the London Daily Telegraph.]
Good Catholics, Bergoglio has certainly earned his moniker of the "Third Paedophile Pope." In four months, "Mr. Humble" has been exposed as caring more for how his pizza is paid for than how to protect innocent children against the predations of his paedophile presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals. He is just another Newchurch hypocrite that should be shunned like the Devil by every true Catholic.
More evidence that Francis-Bergoglio is an outright Modernist is the report that, in a pending organizational change, he is ready to appoint JPII-Woytla's wacko Newpapal master of ceremonies, Piero Marini, as his new Head of the Congregation of [New Order] Divine [Sic] Worship and the Sacraments [Sic]. Piero Marini was long denounced by Neo-cons as staging Hollywood-style messes sauvages. Benedict-Ratzinger dumped him.
Is the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II "Motu" Mess of 1962+ the next to be dumped into Bergoglio's restored Modernist trash-can? We warned the Motarians all along that Ratzinger's "Motu" of 2007 would not last long. Yet the clueless Motarians stupidly put their eggs into the Ratzingerian basket. Now it looks as if they will soon be forced to dance like savages in the aisles of Novus Ordo temples together with the Novus Ordinarians!
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Isn't it true that Archbishop Lefebvre used the 1962 Mess and that the SSPX of the Strict Observance also uses this Half Novus Ordo Vatican II Mess?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Wrong on both counts. The SSPX of the Strict Observance does not require the use of the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II Mess of 1962. Among the founders of the SSPX-SO, there are those who have for years used the fully Traditional Latin Mass (1950), which pre-existed any of the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini's Protestantizing "modernizations."
As far as Archbishop Lefebvre is concerned, you are harboring a common misconception about his use of Bugnini's Half Novus Ordo 1962 Missal. The Archbishop did not advocate that Missal. In fact, on many occasions he said that he had serious doubts about many of its "modernizing" changes.
Under Archbishop Lefebvre, the SSPX followed the Traditional Latin Mass as it was before Bugnini's 1960-1962 Protestantizations. As proof of this fact, the SSPX published an annual Ordo Recitandi Officii Divini Sacrique Peragendi [Ordo for Conducting the Divine and Sacred Office] from 1973 through 1983, which reflected the fullyTraditional Latin Mass (1950), not the Half Novus Ordo Mess of 1962.
In 1984, to be sure, all SSPX districts went to the 1962 Mess, but not completely. This action was taken apparently at the behest of the Newvatican over the Archbishop's objections, when the SSPX was in talks with Newvatican. Those talks ended with the decisive split between the SSPX and Newchurch in 1988.
The Archbishop always refused to follow Bugnini's most obvious Protestantizing changes in the Mass. He rejected Bugnini's "modernizing" changes that involved Protestantizing the priesthood. He rejected Bugnini's "modernizing" changes that involved changes in the Catholic theology about the Jews.
It is true that the Archbishop could have resisted the 1962 Mess even more completely, but he was open about the reason why he did not. It had nothing to do with his persistent objections to Bugnini's Protestantizing changes. The Archbishop clearly stated the reason: he had even more pressing doctrinal issues with Newchurch and had to focus his efforts on those.
After 1988, when the Archbishop realized that Card. Ratzinger and his Newchurch had strayed far away from Catholic doctrine and liturgy, and proceeded to consecrate the four traditional Catholic bishops, he began to rethink his position temporarily accepting, with reservations, most of the 1962 changes. His biographers report that by the time of his death three years later, he was planning to return the SSPX to the fully Traditional Latin Mass.
In his July 13, 2013, Bulletin, traditional Catholic bishop Richard Williamson, formerly the senior bishop of the Society of St. Pius X, now an independent traditional Catholic bishop, reported on the Silver Jubilee celebration in the United States of Archbishop Lefebvre's June 30, 1988, consecration of four traditional Catholic bishops. Bishop Williamson celebrated two Pontifical High Masses with the assistance of twelve traditional Catholic priests from Brazil, Canada, Colombia, England, France, Mexico, and the United States. Each Mass was celebrated before 250-300 of the faithful, some of whom had come great distances, even from abroad, to attend.
These Masses were celebrated at St. Athanasius Traditional Catholic Church in Vienna, Virginia, where five leading priests, known as the "Vienna Five," who left the Novus Ordo "sellout" Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX, Bernie Fellay, founded the SSPX of the Strict Observance (SSPX-SO) on August 10, 2012, to return to the founding principles of the SSPX's founder, Archbishop Lefebvre. Since then almost one hundred other NSSPX priests have left Fellay's corrupted organization and either joined the SSPX-SO or decided to operate independently.
On June 27, 2013, Fellay and his other two Neo-SSPX bishops, Tissier de Mallerais and Galarreta, had issued a declaration that they were still ready to join the New Order sect, if that sect admitted them, that the "door to a deal" between Fellay & Co. and Newpope Francis-Bergoglio "remains open." Bishop Williamson reports that even if Newrome remains Modernist, Fellay will be taken in anyway, "satisfied to be just another of the Conciliar pantheon, along with the heretics, oecumaniacs, pantheists, or whatever else is there."
Bishop Williamson states that Fellay just is trying to fool clueless NSSPXers by making "the label on the outside" of his corrupted organization "look a little more like Archbishop Lefebvre." Fellay's ploy is reminiscent of Benedict-Ratzinger's "Motu" Mess of 2007, which fraudulently tried to put the "traditional" label on the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini's Half Novus Ordo Vatican II Mess of 1962 in order to fool clueless Newchurchers.
Bishop Williamson further reports that The Resistance to Fellay is growing "stronger and stronger." A crowd of 200-300 people, who overflowed the available seating, made the pilgrimage to St. Athanasius in the sticks of Virginia, while Fellay's own celebration at Econe, Switzerland, saw half of the chairs empty. It is ironic that Vienna is not far from where Fellay is trying to bilk his NSSPXers into forking over hundreds of thousands of dollars to build his new "Taj Mahal" seminary, when a perfectly good one already exists in Winona, Minnesota. Given the fact that NSSPXers are leaving Fellay like rats leaving a sinking ship, Fellay won't need his Taj Mahal seminary. He'll be hard pressed to get any seminarians at Winona!
Under threat of a court order, Newchurch's Milwaukee, Wisconsin, archdiocese on July 1, 2013, was forced to release 6,000 pages of documents that show U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops' President and New York Newcardinal Timothy Dolan conspired with Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger in 2007 to defraud the child victims of Newchurch's paedophile presbyters of just recompense for their sufferings. Dolan and Ratzinger conspired literally to bury 57,000,000 U.S. dollars of the Newarchdiocese's funds into a cemetery trust fund so that the child victims would not be able to receive legal compensation.
Dolan, who was the Newarchbishop of Milwaukee from 2002 to 2009, has consistently called the charges against him "malarkey" and "groundless gossip," but was proven a liar in the documents released, when a letter to Ratzinger came to light, in which he admits that the intention of secreting the money in the cemetery was to defraud the child victims of their due recompense. Ratzinger himself was known to take many years to act against the most outrageous paedophile presbyters, but approved this fraud in just five weeks!
Dolan was further exposed as a rank hypocrite, as in public he has expressed outrage against paedophile presbyters, but in his private official actions has deliberately defrauded the children. As Our Lord called Dolan's ilk: "You also outwardly indeed appear to men just: but inwardly you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity" (Matthew 23:27-28/DRV). Other documents showed that Dolan gave lucrative hush-money to paedophile presbyters to leave quietly, without embarrassing him and his bishopric.
Child victims on July 1, 2013, joined together to demand an FBI investigation into Dolan and his predecessor Newchurch archbishops in Milwaukee. The current Newarchbishop, Jerome Listecki, who had fought with the court like a madman to get out of releasing the documents, told his Newchurchers just before their release: "Prepare to be shocked. There are some graphic descriptions about the behavior of some of these pr[esbyter] [sic] offenders." The documents, which did not include presbyters in religious orders, nor lay deacons, teachers, nuns, and choir directors, contained information on 42 presbyter paedophiles, which is just the tip of the iceberg.
The documents proved that Dolan and other Newarchbishops in Milwaukee had harbored some of the most notorious presbyter paedophiles in the United States, including Larry Murphy, who molested as many as 200 boys during his two and a half decades teaching at and leading a Newchurch School for the Deaf. The documents showed that the Newarchbishops routinely recycled to other Newparishes known paedophile presbyters, many of whom resumed their sex crimes against children at their new assignments. 575 children have now come forth in just this one Newchurch archdiocese to charge sex crimes against them by presbyters and other Newchurch officials. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the New York Times.]
Francis-Bergoglio has done a 180 by declaring that his Newchurchers can join the Anglican "Ordinariate," which was established to make Anglicans into Newchurchers. If you have not been "initiated" (that is the new term that Newchurch uses for what used to be baptism and confirmation), however, you're out of luck. You have to remain a Novus Ordinarian. Bergoglio's spokesman said on July 11, 2013, that fallen-away, baptized Newchurchers were besieging the Anglican Ordinariate to become Anglican Ordinarians. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
Good Catholics, in reality the difference between Anglicanism and Newchurchism is now non-existent. Since 1969, Newchurch has been using essentially the Protestant Anglican service. The Newpopes are veering Newchurch doctrine toward that of the Protestant Anglicans. Newchurch is essentially Protestant, and has been since at least 1969, when the full-blown New Order Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service and presbyter ordinations were introduced throughout Newchurch, and the Traditional Latin Mass and the traditional Sacrament of Holy Orders was expelled from Newchurch. That situation remains to this day. Even the Half New Order Mess of 1962+ that is sometimes performed indult "indult" or "motu" is not the Traditional Latin Mass. It is the Vatican II Mess.
I recently saw the following statement published: "To be Catholic, one must accept as infallible the doctrinal teaching authority of a pope, but not necessarily the administrative decisions of a pope, especially if those decisions are contrary to established Catholic Tradition." Is this assertion true? If so, can liturgical changes be considered administrative?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
The doctrine of infallibility most certainly does not pertain to the administrative decisions of a pope. There are all too many admittedly fallible administrative decisions in Church history to make the opposite contention laughable!
Even most traditional Catholics have an incorrect understanding about what the decree about infallibility from the First Vatican Council specifies. They make it almost so broad that if a pope should sneeze, he would be making an infallible pronouncement! To the contrary, the true definition of infallibility is quite narrow, including this overall limitation:
Neque enim Petri successoribus Spiritus sanctus promissus est, ut eo revelante novam doctrinam patefacerent, sed ut eo assistente traditam per apostolos revelationem seu fidei depositum sancte custodirent et fideliter exponerent. (Constitutio Dogmatica Prima de Ecclesia Christi [Pastor Aeternus], cap. 4, "De Romani Pontificis Infallibili Magisterio")
[For the Holy Spirit was promised to the successors of Peter not so that they might, by His revelation, make known some new doctrine, but that, by His assistance, they might religiously guard and faithfully expound the revelation or Deposit of Faith transmitted by the Apostles.]
Not even every doctrinal teaching of a pope is, of necessity, infallible. Only a very narrow category. Several popes have taught heresy in the past and have had to be formally corrected. For further information, click on POPELIM.TXT: Limitations of Papal Authority to Change Sacred Tradition, From the Writings of Roman Catholic Popes, Councils, Saints, and Theologians.
The New Order changes to the Mass are not invalid because they are administrative, but because the Sacred Liturgy pertains essentially to the realm of Sacred Tradition, and no pope can change its essence, which is tantamount to changing Catholic doctrine. This Catholic and Apostolic teaching was confirmed by the dogmatic Council of Trent. From the time of the Apostles and the Apostolic Fathers, only minor changes have been made, and most of these were additions, rather than changes or subtractions.
In the case of the Sacred Canon, the central part of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, that is, the sacrificial action, the form has remained unchanged since as early as the second century, and the true Church has considered it a sacrilege to touch that Canon, which has come to us from the Apostles and Apostolic Fathers. The New Church of the New Order committed that sacrilege, in a very radical way, in 1967, after adopting heretical Protestant models denying the priesthood, the sacrificial nature of Christ's death on the Cross, and the Sacramentality of the Mass, which invalidated the intention of the Novus Ordo service.
The United Nations has now gotten into the prosecution of Newchurch for worldwide crimes against children by its presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals. The U.N. Committee on the Rights of the Child on July 9, 2013, served Francis-Bergoglio with an official demand to hand over the details of his Newchurch's paedophile crimes. The U.N. Committee ruled that in view of the fact that Newchurch has admitted the rampant crimes of its clergy and religious against children and its complicity in systematically covering up those crimes, Newvatican is morally obliged to cough up the detailed information "on all cases of child sexual abuse committed by its clergy."
Ironically, the United Nations is hoisting Bergoglio by his own petard, as Newvatican is a signatory to the U.N. Convention on the Rights of the Child. It is thereby legally required to file a quinquennial report on its compliance -- or, in Newvatican's case, non-compliance. After publicly signing the Convention, JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio have signally failed for 17 years to file the report required by the Convention signed by Newchurch. As one U.N. official put it:
Francis's papacy could well be defined by the world's verdict on his response. More handwringing apologies or calls for a line to be drawn under the past will no longer wash. He will fail unless he initiates bold, tangible actions.
The U.N. Committee has served Bergoglio with an official demand to show whether he has "implemented measures to ensure that no member of the clergy currently accused of sexual abuse be allowed to remain in contact with children." The U.N. Committee also served Bergoglio with an official demand to "divulge details of its investigation of specific cases in which Newbishops or Newchurch leaders had failed to report suspected abuse to the police."
The U.N. Committee has given Bergoglio just until January 2014 to compile the information for an open meeting of its Committee on the Rights of the Child in Geneva, Switzerland, at which Newvatican officials will be publicly interrogated.
Good Catholics, the time of reckoning has now come to shove for Bergoglio. Is he just a pizza-paying mouthpiece for Newchurch corruption, or will he actually take some action against his corrupt Newchurch clergy? It has been over 100 days since he took office, and he has done nothing yet rout the paedophile clergy out of his Newchurch. We seriously doubt that he will respond to the United Nations, to which Newchurch has given semi-divine status as a "supranational body" in Benedict-Ratzinger's Encyclical Letter, Caritas in veritate.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
On July 5, 2013, Francis-Bergoglio and Benedict-Ratzinger jointly Novus Ordo-blessed a new statue of St. Michael the Archangel for the Vatican Gardens, where Ratzinger now resides. Did you look closely at that statue? I did. To me, it appears horrific, sexual, disgraceful, and demonic. Please warn your readers that this is the official Newvatican "Gay/Paedophile" statue that now Bergoglio, Ratzinger, and their Newchurch clergy can appropriately meditate before in the Vatican Gardens!
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
We see your point. The Archangel is portrayed as an almost nude teenage boy. Although there have certainly been Catholic nudes after Greco-Roman examples, such as the "David" of Michelangelo, there is something unclassical about this statue, which seems somehow unnatural.
Traditionally, the Archangel is portrayed in the vesture of a young Roman soldier, not a boy, fighting Satan. The traditional vesture is reminiscent of the description in St. Paul's Epistle to the Ephesians (6:17/DRV) and his First Letter to the Thessalonians (5:8/DRV), in which the vesture of a Roman soldier is used as a metaphor for faith, charity, and the Holy Ghost.
We leave it to our readers to reach their own conclusion.
I have provided for the TRADITIO Network an exclusive obituary for Patrick Henry Omlor, one of the greatest traditional Catholic apologists, who passed from this life on the feastday of St. Athanasius, May 2, 2013. For, like the indomitable 4th century defender of the true nature of Christ, Patrick Omlor courageously fought the modern-day Arians, known as the Newchurchers of the New Order, who are just as, if not more, wicked in their designs than were their heretical predecessors.

The Newchurch of the New Order, consumed in scandal after scandal -- paedophilia amongst its Newclergy, money-laundering for the Mafia in its bank, a "gay" pimp operating out of Francis-Bergoglio's office to service Newcardinals -- is desperate to do something to restore its blackened name. So, on July 5, 2013, Bergoglio rolled out two Modernist Newpopes, John XXIII-Roncalli and JPII-Wojtyla, for Novus Ordo "con-anization." The two weren't even "saintly" enough to meet the valid, traditional requirements for real canonization, let alone the watered-down Novus Ordo requirements, so Bergoglio had to "wave" the requirements for sanctity in order to rush them out for the 50th anniversary of the Modernist Vatican II Council in 2013.
But already Bergoglio has come under attack in the international press for his complicity in these phony Novus Ordo con-anizations. Bergoglio's spokesman spun around in circles trying to claim that the corrupted process was "valid," though even the press knew that it is invalid. The spokesman's explanation was, in essence: it is the will of Bergoglio. Notice: he dared not say: it is the will of God. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Vatican Radio.]
This latest case of Novus Ordo nonsense has nothing to do with the Divine will, but everything to do with human politics. Neither John XXIII nor JPII-Wojtyla meet the traditional requirements to be declared Saints. But the sham is even worse than that: they don't meet the requirements even for Novus Ordo con-anization, which specify two miracles after beatification. Roncalli doesn't have one.
Wojtyla's "miracle" is highly doubtful, apparently being concocted by Newvatican in haste. A woman who saw Wojtyla's photo in a magazine claimed: "It's a miracle! My aneurysm is gone!" There was no serious evaluation by Newvatican that the woman never had a brain aneurysm, but just a bad migraine. It was Wojtyla whose 1983 con-anization "rules" cast aside scientific medical testimony by attending physicians. Newvatican pulled the same thing with Theresa of Calcutta's miracles, which were disproven by attending physicians.
Traditionally, the Church has waited centuries to canonize anyone, wanting to make sure through the concurrence of many generations of Catholics that the candidate is actually holy beyond doubt. Wojtyla's con-anization is ludicrous. His Newpapacy of 26 years was mired in sacrilege, paganism, heresy, and paedophilia. Wojtyla personally supported and blessed his Arch-paedophile presbyter, Marciel Maciel, head of the Legionaries of Christ, who raped boys, girls, men, women, seminarians, and even his own bastard children. For Wojtyla to be Novus Ordo con-anized in less than ten years shows just how desperate Bergoglio and his Newchurch is. The indisputably saintly Pope Pius X waited 40 years to be canonized, and even that was rushed.
Wojtyla changed the whole process of canonization for the New Order sect in 1983, making it an invalid sham, driven by political purposes. His Apostolic Constitution Divinus perfectionis magister was easily rendered invalid by the Catholic theology of the Church's Universal Theologian, St. Thomas Aquinas, who provided an out even for those who recognize Bergoglio as a pope -- an out that permits a complete rejection of all Newchurch con-anizations. According to the criteria of St. Thomas Aquinas, the Church's Universal Theologian, Novus Ordo con-anizations, thus corrupted, are certainly not "infallible." For further information, click on FAQ10: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Beliefs? in the section "Canonizations."
On July 5, 2013, officials at the Bank of Italy charged the Newvatican Bank, officially concealed under the name "Institute for Works of Religion," with allowing organized criminals (i.e., the Mafia), even terrorists, to launder money with impunity. Italian police on that date arrested Francis-Bergoglio's Senior Accountant, Newmonsignor Nunzio Sacarano, on charges of embezzlement and money-laundering.
Sacarano was nabbed in a scheme to smuggle 26,000,000 U.S. dollars from Switzerland into Newvatican on a private jet in order to avoid customs and taxes. Sacrano was already under investigation for embezzling money intended for a hospice to buy himself a hideaway in Sicily to be close to the Mafia accomplices of Bergoglio's Vatican Bank.
Bergoglio, caught with his white cassock down, was forced by Italy to waive Newvatican's immunity from prosecution under normal international banking rules. Having twiddled his thumbs now for over 100 days, Bergoglio was essentially forced to waive the Lateran Concordat of 1929 with Facist Dictator Benito Mussolini, together with the Vatican's alleged independence and sovereignty under that Concordat. In 2012, the Bank of Italy cut off Newvatican's ATMs for six weeks as a penalty for fraud at the Vatican Bank. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the UK Telegraph.]
Good Catholics, you should contact today every Newchurcher you know and give them this information. Plead with them to get out of Newchurch parishes immediately and not to put a penny into a Newchurch collection-plate, which is likely to end up supporting paedophile presbyters or the Mafia. Given the overwhelming evidence, it is not too much to say now that every penny given to the New Order sect is a knowing Mortal Sin of complicity in the filthiest of immoral actions.
The "Declaration of Fidelity" that Bernie Fellay, the Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX, now requires of all his priest/presbyters to swear has been leaked to the Catholic world. The "Declaration of Fidelity" indicates clearly that Fellay has already sold out to the New Order sect.
First, Fellay's NSSPX priest/presbyters must swear that they "recognize" the sitting Newpope as "Pope of the Holy Catholic Church." There are no exceptions of conscience for those who believe in part or in whole, or simply have well-founded doubts, that the Newpopes have fallen from the traditional Catholic Faith.
This is a condition that Benedict-Ratzinger imposed on Fellay as part of the "negotiations" to sell out the Neo-SSPX to the New Order sect. According to Fellay's own communiqué, those negotiations have ceased (but have they really?), yet Fellay continues to impose Ratzinger's condition.
Second, Fellay's NSSPX priest/presbyters must swear that at least some of the Novus Ordo services performed are "not invalid."
In other words some/many unCatholic and invalid Novus Ordo services are valid! Here we are talking about the unCatholic Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service fabricated by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini and imposed on Newchurch starting in 1969. The NSSPX priest/presbyters are required to swear that the Novus Ordo service is not heretical "in an explicit manner." This statement contracts even some of Fellay's own theologians, not to speak of traditional Catholic theologians, who have concluded that the Novus Ordo service is in fact explicitly heretical. Again, in Fellay's dictatorship, there is no room for conscience. Fellay thus rejects St. Augustine's dictum: "In dubiis libertas."
Third, Fellay's NSSPX priest/presbyters must swear that the "liturgical reforms of John XXIII" are "legitimate."
Even the acceptance of some/many Novus Ordo services as valid is not good enough for Fellay. Here again we have Fellay playing God by imposing his own notions on Neo-SSPXers, many of whom disagree with his false predilections. Contrary to Fellay's love of John XXIII, many of his own Neo-SSPXers reject this individual and view him as the founder of the Newchurch of the New Order in view of his convoking the Modernist Vatican II Council, which has virtually destroyed the true Catholic Church. This individual also approved the "Mess of 1962," the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II Mess, which became Benedict-Ratzinger's 2007 "Motu" Mess of 2007. Like the Full Novus Ordo Mess of 1969, the Half Novus Ordo Mess of 1962 was engineered by the Freemason presbyter Bugnini.
Although Fellay is now spinning like a whirling dervish trying to rewrite history and claiming that he is not a Novus Ordo-wannabe, but is a traditional Catholic, his own statements and actions prove that he is no longer even a traditional Catholic bishop -- if he ever was one--, and that his Neo-SSPX is no more Archbishop Lefebvre's traditional Catholic organization than a swan is a snake!
As we TRADITIO Fathers have frequently reported in these Daily Commentaries, the propaganda being put out by Newvatican and its Newbishops around the world that the crimes committed by their paedophile presbyters against children as young as six months of age been eradicated or that there is a "zero tolerance policy" is entirely false propaganda, P.R., damage control. Call it what you want: Newchurch children are being raped and assaulted at a rate that is increasing according to outside audits, not decreasing.
The latest report to confirm the moral complicity of Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch bishops in paedophile crimes comes from the state of New Jersey in the United States, where children raped and sodomized have only until age 20 to file charges against their violators. State Senator Joseph Vitale is sponsoring legislation that would extend the statute of limitations for sexual abuse victims to 30 years, the same period that the state of Delaware allows. Senator Vitale, who lists his religion as Christian, has at least had the guts to take on in public the Newchurch of the New Order, which claims to be Christian, for the crimes of its presbyters and Newbishops against children.
You'd think that Senator Vitale's legislation against paedophiles would strike a chord in human beings revolted by heinous child rapists and sodomists. But no. Senator Vitale has strong opposition from the New Jersey Catholic [Sic] Conference, which is surreptitiously spending big money to keep the law from passing. The Newchurch Conference, which reports to Francis-Bergoglio in Newrome, has hired an expensive and powerful lobbying firm to fight against Senator Vitale's bill. The New York Times, in commenting upon the situation, fingered Newchurch's motivation as filthy lucre: Newchurch doesn't want to pay just damages to the children its Newclergy has raped and sodomized. "Forget about protecting children.... This is about preserving their fortune, even at the expense of sexual-abuse victims."
Perhaps Senator Vitale first became an advocate for the child victims of sodomizing presbyters and Newbishops in 1990, when the founder and head of the Covenant House charity for homeless and runaway children in neighboring New York City, presbyter Bruce Ritter, was himself fingered as a rampant paedophile, routinely raping and sodomizing the children in his institution. In fact, he may have founded the institution just so that he have unrestricted access to defenseless children whom he could sodomize at will. An outside investigation concluded that "the cumulative evidence against [presbyter] Ritter was extensive." Instances of financial malfeasance perpetrated by Ritter were also discovered. He was unjustly allowed to resign in lieu of prison.
More recently, on May 8, 2013, declaring "enough is enough," Senator Vitale called upon the Newarchbishop of Newark, New Jersey, John Myers, to resign for his shielding of the convicted paedophile presbyter and Newparish pastor, Michael Fugee, and allowed him to continue working with children. "Zero tolerance is zero tolerance," Senator Vitale told Myers. "It's not subject to someone's interpretation or whim." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Star Ledger.]
Good Catholics, you should contact today every Newchurcher you know, particularly those with children, and give them this information. Plead with them to get out of Newchurch parishes immediately on account of a very real fear that their children have a high chance of being assaulted and raped by presbyters supported by their Newbishops. If Newchurch parents do not get out of Newchurch, they have only themselves to blame for their gross and immoral negligence.
What if you worked for years on a new New English Mess, then forced it on your Newchurch presbyters -- and 80 per cent of them rejected it? That is exactly what has happened in just seven months with Ratzinger's re-engineered new English Mess. Presbyters all over the world have rejected Ratzinger's new New Mess in English.
Even the chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops' Committee on the Liturgy, Donald Traupman, on July 2, 2013, publicly admitted that his work of six years has turned out to be just a pile of you-know-what. Traupman has been buffeted by criticism from the "extremely dissatisfied vast majority" of presbyters in the United States. Traupman's committee's new New Order English service translation into English, mandated for use in the United States and several other English-speaking countries on November 24, 2012, is widely criticized as "flawed, awkward, and clumsy."
Studies now show that nearly 80 per cent of Newchurcher presbyters hate the new New English Mess, Benedict-Ratzinger's Novus Ordo Missal in its Third Revised Edition of October 5, 2008. Ratzinger contradicted 2,000 years of Catholic Church doctrine and practice by declaring this Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Mess to be the "Ordinary Rite" of Newchurch. So dissatisfied are the presbyters that at the Association of U.S. Catholic [Sic] P[resbyters] meeting in Seattle, Washington, during the week of June 24, 2013, a resolution was put forward to return to the First Edition New Mess of 1974.
Good Catholics, too bad these presbyters didn't put forward a resolution to return to the valid Traditional Latin Mass of two millennia and to have themselves validly re-ordained by validly consecrated bishops, so that they could actually celebrate the Mass validly. Since 1969 the Newchurch of the New Order has not been validly ordaining priests in Holy Orders, but invalidly "installing" them "to preside over the assembly of the people in a Protestantized installation service.

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
If Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre were alive today and saw what was going on with the negotiations with what the Archbishop called "Modernist Rome," what do you believe his reaction would be to Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX? It seems that some within the Neo-SSPX incomprehensibly think that they are doing the work of the Archbishop. At least that's what they say for public consumption. Whether they actually believe their own "spin" is questionable.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
We don't have to guess: we know what the Archbishop's reaction would be. On the verge of selling out himself (and the pressure from Newchurch on an Archbishop with decades of papal service must have been more than we can imagine), he took a night of quiet reflection and found a divine courage to utter a NO! that has reverberated through the Church. Then he proceeded with the four consecrations for the traditional Catholic world -- another incredibly bold move for an Archbishop.
Fellay and his lieutenants are trying to "spin-doctor" their obvious treason. Fellay and his lieutenants have spurned the clear meaning and example of the Archbishop. If you have been reading carefully these Daily Commentaries, you know that Fellay even sued the family of the Archbishop in an effort to suppress publication of the complete and unedited works of the Archbishop. Why? Because these works are so clearly hostile to Newchurch and its Newpopes, particuarly Benedict-Ratzinger, whom he knew intimately.
One hundred traditional Catholic priests have now abandoned Fellay's anti-traditional, anti-Lefebvran Neo-SSPX. -- for good and clearly-expressed reasons. One-sixth of Fellay's clergy have now publicly called their Superior-Dictator a traitor to the Archbishop. Yet Fellay continues his tyranny against his own people. One of these is the man who knew the Archbishop best, his first and senior bishop, a very level-headed and charitable bishop, Richard Williamson, who has now come out to call Fellay's anti-Lefebvran organization the "Antichrist." Williamson knows Fellay intimately, and this is the considered decision that he has reached after nine years of observing at close hand Fellay's attempts at sellout. Williamson's now public condemnation of Fellay speaks volumes.
What would the Archbishop's reaction be? We have no doubt, no doubt, whatsoever. His words and his actions -- his very life -- make it clear beyond doubt. In the words of Scripture, he would spit Fellay out of his mouth in revulsion at his impiety and treason, not only to his consecrator personally, but, more importantly, to the traditional Roman Catholic Faith and all its true adherents.
On the 25th anniversary of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre's 1988 consecration of four traditional bishops for his Society of St. Pius X, the remaining three bishops (Bernie Fellay, Tissier de Mallerais, and Alfonso de Galarreta) have issued a June 27, 2013, statement that the press has characterized as a "definitive break of talks with the Catholic [sic] Church." If this is the proper interpretation of the statement -- and we TRADITIO Fathers don't believe it for an instant --, it is much too little and much too late.
In the interim since the Neo-SSPX's eighteen months of 2009-2011 negotiations with the New Order sect in order to sell out to Newchurch, the Neo-SSPX's senior bishop, Richard Williamson, has left the Society and is now publicly condemning its Superior-Dictator, Bernie Fellay, and his reorganized Neo-SSPX as "little short of a horrible fall," a "dress rehearsal for the Antichrist."
As we say, we TRADITIO Fathers don't believe for a minute this mendacious anniversary statement, but if it were true, the Traditional Catholic Movement can thank a few French web sites and the TRADITIO Network for exposing ever since 2004 Fellay's duplicity and keeping his feet to the fire for his sellout of traditional Catholicism and his attempted sellout of his Neo-SSPX to the New Order sect.
In this cause the Traditional Catholic Movement has apparently been the beneficiary of the help of Providence, Which, on two critical occasions, smashed to smithereens the cabal of Fellay-Ratzinger to sell out the Archbishop's traditional Catholic organization, founded in 1970 specifically against the Newchurch of the New Order, to what the Archbishop called "Modernist Rome."
The first sellout agreement was scheduled to be announced February 2, 2009, but was stopped by the NSSPX's senior bishop, Richard Williamson's, statement in a Swedish Public Television interview on a disputed point of secular history, which was not favorable to the Jews. Since one of the primary goals of Benedict-Ratzinger's Newpapacy was acceptance of the Jews, he called off the first sellout.
The second sellout was scheduled to be announced on Pentecost Sunday, May 27, 2012, but was stopped by the leaking of a letter of May 12, 2012, signed by Bishops Williamson, Tissier de Mallerais, and Galarreta, which characterized Fellay as a traitor to the Archbishop's traditional Catholic principles. Since Ratzinger was now faced with a broken and divided Neo-SSPX, he called off the second sellout.
Now Fellay, having failed -- at least temporarily -- to effect the sellout, has hired a Dutch marketing company to "rebrand" and "spin doctor" his efforts 180 degrees. He is even trying to purge his web sites -- remember how once he despised web sites? -- of any proof to the contrary. Having gone on the record publicly many times in favor of the sellout and having attempted to engineer the sellout internally by twisting the arms of his Neo-SSPX priests and bishops, Fellay now claims to have been the "Blushing Bride." He never wanted to sell out, he now says. It was Benedict-Ratzinger who kept twisting his arm. Well, Bernie, under traditional Catholic Sacramental theology, the Blushing Bride can always say No!
"There is no honor among thieves," goes the saying. When the Second Paedophile Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger, was in power, Fellay couldn't wait to play the groveling sycophant. But now that Ratzinger is out of power and dying, Fellay, like the traitor that he is to everyone, has turned against Ratzinger and rejected Ratzinger's "hermeneutic of continuity" that Fellay had essentially accepted all during the negotiations. This term was weasel-worded, meaningless nonsense specifically meant to facilitate the sellout of Fellay to Ratzinger' New Order sect.
Fellay and his two bishop lackeys most harshly criticize in their statement the "Ordinary Rite" of the New Order sect, the so-called Novus Ordo service. But, in the past, Fellay has made it a point never to reject it completely as the invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan fabrication that it is. If he did so, Newchurch would not give him the benefit of its Novus Ordo purple. And Fellay is no fool. He's a calculating Napoleon, who knows just want he wants for himself. Damn Archbishop Lefebvre! Damn traditional Catholicism! Up with Bernie!
Good Catholics, the reason for the "spin doctoring" in this June 27, 2013, NSSPX bishops' statement is so clear that it would take an idiot not to see it. Fellay has failed in accomplishing the sellout and getting his Novus Ordo purple. He has wrecked his organization to serve his personal ambition. His organization's senior bishop has called him a "horror" and an "Anti-Christ" and has left the organization. One hundred of Fellay's priests, one out of every six, have left Fellay's organization, calling him a traitor to the Archbishop's traditional Catholic principles. NSSPX laypeople are starting organizations whose purpose is to throw Fellay out of office. What can Fellay do but do a 180-degree flipflop? Or, the correct choice, get out of Menzingen!
Francis-Bergoglio and his Newchurch of the New Order will celebrate the Protestant Revolution together on the 500th anniversary of arch-heretic Martin Luther's posting of his 95 Theses on the door of the Cathedral of Wittemberg, October 31, 1517. Bergoglio's Newvatican and the Lutherans have issued a joint document, From Conflict to Communion, to seal the deal. The document was issued not in Rome, but in Geneva, Switzerland, the headquarters of the Protestant World Council of Churches. Luther's action triggered the Protestant Revolution, which split Western Christianity into Catholic and heretical Protestant.
Bergoglio has encountered some criticism, however. Some Newvatican personnel have stated that there is nothing to celebrate in heresy. Newchurch has already spurned the Feastday of Our Lord Jesus Christ the King, which Pope Pius XI specifically placed on the last Sunday of October to counter Protestant Reformation Day. The New Order sect moved it to the last Sunday of November so as not to conflict with the Protestants.
The "Communion" document with the Lutherans acknowledges that heresy is not to be condemned. "The reasons for mutually condemning each other's faith have fallen by the wayside." In fact, in 1999, JPII-Wojtyla's Newvatican caved in to the Protestants and signed a formal agreement on the doctrine of justification, the theological issue that was at the root of Luther's heresy in the 16th century. Curiously, it was not the hypocritical and unCatholic Newchurch that had any reservations about the agreement. It was the traditional Lutheran sects that walked out of the meeting and refused to sign, at least remaining honest to their beliefs. The walkout caused such a scandal that Wojtyla quickly dispatched Newcard. Ratzinger to patch things up, but Ratzinger signally failed.
It was actually at the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965), and particularly in 1969, that the New Order sect came into "communion" with Lutherans by adopting the invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service as what is now called the "Ordinary Rite" of Newchurch. Today both Newvatican and Lutherans spurn discussion of the basic theological differences that separate Catholicism from Protestantism. Today's issues, ultimately stemming from them, have led some Lutheran sects to embrace priestesses/ministresses and homosexuality. It appears that Francis-Bergoglio's New Order sect is going in this direction as well. As the history of the last fifty years has shown: "Where the Protestants lead, Newchurch follows."

In a series of two weekly Communiqués, the SSPX's former senior bishop, Richard Williamson, has formally and publicly turned against Bernie Fellay, the NSSPX's current Superior-Dictator, who single-mindedly attempted to engineer the sellout of NSSPX founder Archbishop Lefebvre's traditional Catholic Society to the Newchurch of the New Order, which the Archbishop condemned as "not Catholic."
In his June 2013 communiqués Bishop Williamson has excoriated Fellay for his treason against the traditional Catholic principles of Archbishop Lefebvre. Williamson characterizes the last 15 years under Fellay as "little short of a horrible fall," which he places under the general umbrella of a "dress rehearsal for the Antichrist." He characterizes what Fellay has done to destroy the Society of St. Pius X as a "horror." Williamson claims that this "at last became clear one year ago."
If that is what he truly thinks, Williamson must have had blinders on! It became clear to us TRADITIO Fathers certainly no later than August 29, 2004, the Feastday of the Beheading of St. John the Baptist, when Fellay sat down in the Newpapal "oval office" with the Second Paedophile Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger, and his lieutenant, Newcardinal Dario Hoyos, who later charged Ratzinger with forcing him to pursue a course of covering up, under pain of Novus Ordo excommunication, paedophile presbyters and Newbishops in his role as Prefect of [New Order] Clergy.
In reality, evidence of Fellay's impending sellout actions were clear even as early as 2000, when he staged a procession during Newchurch's millennial-year Jubilee in order to soften up the New Order to accepting his pseudo-traditional society. Bishop Williamson has accurately depicted why Fellay and his Neo-SSPX fell from the traditional Catholic Faith:
The leadership [Bernie Fellay and his lieutenants] that has skillfully promoted that fall over the last 15 years is still in power. It followed Archbishop Lefebvre while he lived, but it never understood, or it chose to cease understanding, why he founded the Society in the first place, namely, to resist the downfall of Conciliar churchmen seeking to bring the Church into line with the glamorous but corrupt modern world. Once he was no longer there, these leaders were all too soon re-possessed by the glamour.
What an excellent exposure of what is behind the fall of Fellay and his lieutenants from the traditional Catholic Faith of Archbishop Lefebvre to their open espousal of the unCatholic New Order sect! But Bishop Williamson does not stop here. He goes on to describe what will finally send Fellay and his Neo-SSPX coming out of the closet into open heresy: "The [N]SSPX seminaries are slowly being turned into Newseminaries," that is, agents of the unCatholic New Order.
Fellay, concludes Bishop Williamson, " looks forward to the SSPX leaders renewing contacts with the new pope [Francis-Bergoglio], as though, having half collapsed, they do not risk collapsing completely when they crawl back" to the "Roman apostates." As for the SSPX leaders, says Williamson, "they are mired in duplicity because they still have to deceive themselves and others that they are faithful to the old religion of God and of Archbishop Lefebvre, when in reality they are wanting to belong to the mainstream Church dedicated to the new religion of man."
On June 26, 2013, Chicago Newchurchers paid the price for selling out to the New Order sect. On that date demolition of their beloved traditional St. James Church began with the pounding of Newarchbishop Francis George's sledgehammers. George promised not the true Sacraments to the Newparishioners, but the demolition of their 133-year-old Chicago South Side Neo-Gothic landmark. The Newchurch hierarchy's barbarous vandalism was well summarized by Preservation Chicago: "The Catholic [Sic] Church's hierarchy has lost its soul."
George announced that he would destroy the traditional Church and replace it with a Novus-Ordo-style temple nearby. But the Novus-Ordo parishioners couldn't hear George because of the church's roof crashing down on the sanctuary within. How many of these Newparishioners were thinking, too late: "If only we had resisted Vatican II and its New Order before it destroyed the Catholic Church!
The impressive 133-year-old Neo-Gothic structure was built by Irish immigrants who came to Chicago fleeing starvation in Ireland. When they found work in their new country, they built St. James in a grand celebration of thanksgiving. Newchurchers of the present day, if they build anything new at all, build Novus-Ordo Quonset huts. One Vatican II-era Newparishioner said: "It's like punching a hole in God's heart."
But where was this elderly Newparishioner when the New Order devastated the Catholic Church beginning in the mid 1960s? He himself is one of those who punched a whole in God's heart. Now, his beloved church destroyed before the Newparishioner's eyes, he has only himself to blame. Actions -- or, in this case, inactions -- have their consequences, or, as the Newchurchers say in their invalid unCatholic New Order service -- in paying God's just price for "what we have done and what we have failed to do." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Chicago Tribune.]
Good Catholics, if these Newchurchers were true Catholics, they would remember the words of St. Basil the Great, who himself saw Arian heretics, even with the support of some of the popes, destroy the Church in his time:
Who has lost and who has won in the struggle -- the one who keeps the buildings or the one who keeps the Faith? The true Faith, obviously. That, therefore, the ordinances which have been preserved in the churches from old time until now may not be lost in our days,... rouse yourselves, brethren,... seeing them now seized upon by aliens.
Just as the TRADITIO Network predicted, when the Second Paedophile Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger, fell from power, the New Order criminals would be coming out of the closet. Newchurch's latest scandal hit the fan on June 25, 2013, when a presbyter, Don Patrizio Poggi, currently serving a five-year sentence for paedophile crimes against boys, turned state's evidence and revealed that a child prostitution ring has been operating under the nose of the Newpopes to service senior Newvatgican clergy.
The john who operates Rome's paedophile ring was fingered as having furnished at least twenty "rentboys," housed in apartments around Rome, to have sex inside Newrome's churches with presbyters, including Newcardinals and other high Newchurch officials. The john recruited the 14-year-old boys at "gay" discos, saunas, and gyms across Rome, and particularly outside a "gay" bar named "Twink" (a slang word for young "gay" boys) across from the Archbasilica of Santa Maria Maggiore. The boys were paid up to 500 U.S. dollars to perform sex acts inside the archbasilica with the Newchurch presbyters. Thus, the crimes of the Newchurch presbyters were not only sodomy, but were compounded by sacrilege.
Presbyter Poggi's revelations have already met the test of police scrutiny. He presented documentary and photographic evidence to Rome police in the company of two senior Newvatican clergymen who vouched for his credibility. Rome police have opened a formal investigation and have targeted already at least four senior Newclergymen. Poggi is not the first to have charged Newvatican personnel with pimping boys, all the way into Newpope's personal staff.
But presbyter Poggi's charges of Newchurch presbyters renting underage boy prostitutes were not the most serious charges. The presbyter revealed that Novus Ordo "consecrated" hosts are being sold for Satanic rites. With the practice that Newchurchers uses of "hand communion," many hosts are used for Satanic and other sacrilegious purposes -- at least it would be sacrilegious if the hosts were actually "consecrated," but they are not because the Novus Ordo service is invalid. Poggi was not the first to have charged Newvatican personnel with such sacrileges. The best-selling author, Jesuit, and friend of pre-Vatican II popes, Malachi Martin, famously revealed that during the Modernist Council Vatican II (1962-1965), "Black Masses," that is, Satanic rites, were performed even by cardinals.
