On May 26, 2014, flying home after a three-day junket to Israel that left him visibly fatigued, Francis-Bergoglio told the international press on the Newpapal airplane that he was thinking of abdicating after the fashion of Benedict-Ratzinger, who spurned the tradition that true popes hold office for life. Bergoglio looked forward to the day when Newpopes would serve for short terms, like U.S. Presidents, then abdicate.
Ratzinger was almost 86 when he abdicated. Bergoglio is only 77 now, but his missing lung prevents him from singing Mess and makes him subject to infections, which forced him three times to cancel his schedule in his first year. Several physicians have publicly expressed great concern about Bergoglio's medical condition. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
Good Catholics, get ready for yet another breach with Catholic history. These Newpopes of the Newchurch of the New Order could end up numbering one, two, or more Newpopes "Emeriti," as they call them, all pontificating imultaneously. Emeritus is a Latin word used by the classical Romans to describe a soldier who is paid off after having served for 25 years. Many soldiers, nevertheless, refused to retire and stayed on for more than 25 years. Ratzinger didn't last even eight years before he threw in the towel.
It is a sad day when an Israeli Prime Minister knows more about Christian history that a Newpope. On May 26, 2014, on the last day of Francis-Bergoglio's junket to Israel, the question of the language that Christ spoke came up. Bergoglio thought Aramaic, but Benjamin Netanyahu, son of an historian, got it right: "He spoke Aramaic, but he knew Hebrew." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
When the Jews returned from the Babylonian Captivity in the sixth century before Christ, their national language had become the vernacular Aramaic, but, like Latin in the Catholic Church, Hebrew remained the language of religious observance. But there is more to it than that. Recent archaeology has shown that Christ lived not far away from a Greek city, that is, one founded under the rule of Alexander the Great. Greek in the Eastern Roman Empire was a lingua franca, following Alexander's great conquests in planting Greek culture there. It is, therefore, quite probable that Christ spoke Greek as well.
And what about Latin? Mel Gibson, in his 2004 film, The Passion of the Christ, shows Pontius Pilate and Christ conversing in Latin. That is possible because Christ may have had exposure that the language of Rome as well, because the Roman soldiers posted there would likely be speaking Latin. However, Gibson is probably wrong in portraying Pilate speaking to the High Priest Caiphas in the vernacular Aramaic. Pilate, the Roman authority, would not stoop to a native language, especially because Caiphas knew Greek, if not Latin. At most, Pilate may have condescended to speak to Caiphas in Greek.
But that was in the East only. In Rome and the West, Latin was the rule. It is reported that once an Eastern ambassador was to speak before the Roman Senate and began his address in Greek, which all the Senators would have known, as it was part of their education in order to read the great orators, philosophers, and historians of ancient Greece. The emperor Tiberius, under whom Christ was to die, ordered his lictor to halt the speech of the ambassador, directing: When in Rome, speak Latin!
There were a few priests who refused publicly to simulate the invalid "New Mess" of 1969. Fr. Gommar DePauw (1918-2005), Founder in 1964 of the Catholic Traditionalist Movement in the United States, is the most well known case. Another case was Fr. Roger-Thomas Calmel (1914-1975) in France. Frs. DePauw and Calmel remained true to their priesthood and died remaining faithful to the Catholic Faith. All priests who stood up to the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini and his collaborator, Newpope Paul VI-Montini, were in fact left alone, as their arguments for the invalidity of the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New Mess" could not be countered.
Fr. Calmel was a French Dominican priest and theologian. Because the invalid "New Mess," which was to come into force on the First Sunday of Advent, November 30, 1969, had no Catholic leg to stand on, the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini and collaborator, Bugnini-Montini tried to use a false argument from obedience. In order words, an evil Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service must be accepted, they proclaimed, because we decree it so. But Fr. Calmel, as a Dominican in the tradition of the Church's Universal Theologian, St. Thomas Aquinas, destroyed that argument.
Fr. Calmel affirmed that it is precisely in virtue of obedience that it is necessary to refuse every compromise with the liturgical revolution: "The infallibility of the pope is limited; therefore, our obedience is limited," indicating the principle of the subordination of obedience to Truth, of authority to Sacred Tradition. Fr. Calmel drew attention in the history of the Church to the cases of Saints who were opposed to the false authority of popes who were schismatics and heretics, such as St. Athanasius, St. Thomas a Becket, and St. Joan of Arc. Three days before the invalid "New Mess" was to replace the Traditional Latin Mass in the Newchurch of the New Order, Fr. Calmel publicly refused, proclaiming:
I hold to the Traditional Mass, that which was codified, but not fabricated, by St. Pius V, in the sixteenth century, in conformity to a centuries-old usage. I therefore refuse the Ordo Missae of Paul VI. Why? Because, in reality, this Ordo Missae does not exist. What exists is a universal and permanent liturgical revolution.... It is the right of every priest to refuse to wear the mask of this liturgical revolution. And I consider it my duty as a priest to refuse to celebrate. If we accept this new rite..., we will pass over, without delay ... to a "mass" which is completely heretical and therefore nothing. Initiated by the pope [Montini], then diffused by him to the national churches, the revolutionary reform of the [new] "mass" leads to Hell. How can we accept to become accomplices of this...?
The priest who conforms to the new rite, composed of various pieces by Paul VI, collaborates on his part in progressively establishing a false "mass" where the Presence of Christ will no longer be authentic, but will be transformed into an empty memorial; therefore, the Sacrifice of the Cross will be nothing other than a religious meal where one eats a bit of bread and drinks a little wine, nothing else, just like the Protestants.
Fr. Calmel's supporters expected Moniti's Writ of Excommunication to be delivered forthwith. But it never came. The priest had courageously come out into the open and publicly resisted the abuses of power of an unjust and illegal law of a Newpope. Fr. Calmel had proven that the issue is not one of choosing between obedience and the Faith, but between obedience to the Faith and collaboration in the destruction of the Faith. He had understood perfectly that the form of violence exercised by Newchurch is an abuse of authority, exercised by demanding unconditional obedience, before which so many presbyters and many laypersons submit themselves, being too cowardly to stand up for the Catholic Faith and to resist false authority and violence to Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition.
It is scandalous to note how many wimpish "priests" bought into the argument for obedience to evil, which Frs. DePauw and Calmel exposed as actually disobedient to the Catholic Faith. These presbyters want to keep their exorbitant salaries and perquisites (some not far from 100,000 U.S. dollars now), including fully-funded medical and retirement plans. So, they sell out to the phony "Extraordinary Mess of 1962," which was devised by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini to soften up the ignoscenti to accept the full-blown, invalid New Mess of 1969, which Benedict-Ratzinger declared to be the "Ordinary Rite" of Newchurch. Even the Bernie "Judas" Fellay, Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX, accepts the blasphemous, sacrilegious, and Protestantized "New Mess" as possibly valid. Fr. Calmel had already shown conclusively that it was not at all valid, but an empty Protestant "memorial."
Good Catholics, if that is what you profess to be, you can have nothing to do with the New Order sect or its "New Mass" or, for that matter, its Half "New Mass" of 1962, aka "Extraordinary." If you profess to be Catholic you must join with Fr. Calmel in proclaiming: "The Mass belongs to the Church. The new Mass belongs only to Modernism. I hold to the Mass which is Catholic, traditional, Gregorian, because it does not belong to Modernism. Modernism is a virus. It is contagious, and one must flee from it."
On May 23, 2014, the United Nations Commission to enforce the Anti-torture Treaty, to which Newvatican is a signatory, rejected Francis-Bergoglio's contention that he controls only the one-half square kilometre Vatican City State. The Commission found instead that Bergoglio does in fact exercise worldwide control over his bishops and presbyters and was bound by international law to comply with the U.N.'s Anti-torture Treaty.
The U.N. Committee Against Torture then found that Newvatican officials had failed to report sex crimes properly, had reassigned Newclergy rather than discipline them, and had failed to pay adequate compensation to the tens of thousands of child victims that had come forward, with more coming forward every day. The Commission held that Newvatican had implicitly violated its obligations under the Anti-torture Treaty, which it ratified in 2002.
Bergoglio countered that he didn't exercise direct control over its 440,000 presbyters and 5,000 Newbishops worldwide. The Commission found that contention ridiculous. It was tantamount to Bergoglio's denying that he is the Newpope of Newchurch. The Commission held that ratifying parties to the Anti-torture Treaty, including Newvatican, "bear international responsibility for the acts and omissions of their officials and others acting in an official capacity or acting on behalf of the state."
The Commission held that it has been firmly established in international law that rape and sexual violence can amount to torture. In February 2014 the United Nations Commission on the Rights of the Child concluded that Bergoglio and his Newvatican systematically places its own interests over those of child victims by enabling presbyters and Newbishops to rape and assault tens of thousands of children through a code of silence.

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I am trying to sort out the different "versions" of "Latin Masses." Could you summarize these and indicate which are actually traditional and valid?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
First of all, "Latin Mass" is a deliberately ambiguous term that can include even the invalid New Order Mess in Latin. The term is frequently used by the Newchurch of the New Order to lure Catholics into unCatholic and invalid services, so you have to be on your guard. The language is not the only issue; it is the form as well. There can be "Latin Masses" that are neither Catholic nor valid.
There are basically three "versions" that you will find offered in Latin, though they cannot properly be called "versions" because one is not a Mass at all (the invalid New Order Mess of 1969), one is a borderline, heavily Protestantized Mess (the Half New Order Mess of 1962, aka "Extraordinary" since 2007), and only one is the true Traditional Latin Mass.
For further information, consult the Official Traditional Catholic Directory, Listing All Traditional Latin Masses and Traditional Resources for North America, provided to the TRADITIO Network by the National Registry of Traditional Latin Masses. This Directory describes each of these classes in detail, the organizations that offer each class, and icons to help you determine which class is legitimate and which is to be shunned by traditional Catholics.
The TRADITIO Network doesn't gild the lily. We tell it as it is. We have been almost alone in consistently pointing out the reality about the health of the Newpopes. While others concealed their medical conditions, we were forthright in drawing attention to the reality. We pointed out the seriousness of JPII-Wojtyla's Parkinson's Disease when Newvatican wouldn't even use the term. We even questioned whether in his last years he even had the mental competence necessary to know what he was doing and whether his acts were thereby null and void.
We reported all of Benedict-Ratzinger's multitudinous health emergencies, whereas other sources were saying that he was in good health for a man in his eighties. Shortly thereafter he resigned, as he said, for health reasons. Now we have pointed out several times that Francis-Bergoglio isn't nearly as hale as Newvatican has been saying. And the TRADITIO Network has been proven right once again.
Now Newvatican sources are openly expressing concerns about Bergoglio's health. They admit that he lost most of one lung, so that he is incompetent to sing Mess. Bergoglio has suffered three infections in the first years of his Newpapacy and has had to cancel days of appointments. He has reported fatigue, has difficulty breathing, and has gained 10 kilograms in just a year.
One emergency-medicine physician has stated publicly that Bergoglio's health is "in a very serious condition," that as he ages, Bergoglio is losing lung function and is increasing unable to oxygenate his blood. The physician says that the sudden weight gain may indicate that Bergoglio is slipping into a form of chronic heart failure common to victims of significant lung disorders.
Bergoglio has a personal doctor who is a Chinese Taoist and who uses Taoist medical techniques to treat him. In September 2013 the Argentine magazine Noticias reported that this man was "concerned" about Bergoglio's health, stating, "I have the impression that something is wrong." Liu Ming claims that he helped cure Bergoglio of "heart and liver problems through acupuncture and other Oriental treatments." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Newsmax.]
Shock waves permeated the traditional Catholic community when it was revealed on May 18, 2014, that Bernie Fellay, Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX, is charging interest to his own "parishes" on building debt, that is, money borrowed from Fellay to complete the Neo-SSPX's own building projects. This should be no surprise. When Fellay was consecrated in 1988 at the last minute as a substitute bishop, he had essentially no pastoral experience. His main activity had been as the green-eye-shaded bookkeeper for the SSPX since his ordination in 1982.
Speculation has become rife that Fellay's policy may have been influenced by Fellay's financial alter ego, Maximilian Krah, the Jewish fund-raiser, who sits with Fellay on several financial Boards of Directors. Since Fellay has joined forces with Krah, the Neo-SSPX is operating more and more like the Bank of America, the Bank of England, or Francis-Bergoglio's scandal-ridden Vatican Bank.
Amidst great controversy, Fellay is dumping the Society's long-time seminary in the United States, at Winona, Minnesota, once run by senior traditional Catholic bishop Richard Williamson, who in 2012 abandoned Fellay because of his attempted sellout to the New Order and went independent. At a time when one-sixth of his clergy has abandoned Fellay for attempting to out the once-traditional SSPX to the Modernist Newchurch of the New Order, Fellay is blowing a wad of money -- from unknown sources -- on yet another building project: a Modernist-looking new seminary for New Order-leaning pseudo-traditionalists in the mountains of Virginia.
After fifty years of false "oecumenism" toward the Jews, spurred by the Modernist Vatican II Council's Declaration Nostra aetate, which sought to rewrite Christ's teaching in the Bible, Francis-Bergoglio is facing outright hostility and even violence from the Jews on his May 24-26, 2014, visit to Israel. Even though Bergoglio will travel with a rabbi and a Mohammedan sheik as his "wingmen," the atmosphere in Israel is one of outrage and sourness. Israeli police are turned out in force in an effort to keep it all under control.
Bergoglio has raised the ire of Jews by staging an invalid New Order Mess at the Cenacle, the site of the Last Supper, but which Jews revere as the burial place of King David and want to retain control thereof. Jews protest Bergoglio's attempt to take ownership of the place. The Latin Patriarch of Jerusalem has urged Israeli authorities to do more to crack down on anti-Bergoglio activities. But one Israeli official countered: "In a democratic country I don’t think it is possible to wipe out the mind-set of people." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
Good Catholics, it seems that the Newchurch of the New Order has again shot itself in the foot. In the false "oecumenism" that it implemented after Vatican II -- which the Catholic Church traditionally calls the error of syncretism ("we all worship the same god," "all gods are equal") --, the traditional Catholic teaching, based upon Christ's teaching in the New Testament, was expelled from Newchurch. This teaching was best expressed in Pope Pius XI's Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, which true Catholics recite annually on the Feast of Christ the King, the last Sunday of October, before the Most Blessed Sacrament Exposed: "Turn Thine eyes of mercy toward the children of that race once Thy chosen people. Of old they called down upon themselves the Blood of the Savior; may It now descend upon them a laver of redemption and of life."
As if further evidence were needed that the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965) has destroyed Catholicism in the "institutional" Church, Newcardinal Luis Tagle, of Manila, Philippines, on May 20, 2014, told the Catholic News Service that he was "shocked" by responses to the global survey on Church teaching on the family, issued ahead of Newchurch's October 5-19, 2014, Extraordinary Synod of Bishops. Tagle indicated that that Newchurchers were ignorant of doctrine. Tagle is to be one of the three presidents of the synod.
Good Catholics, even Newchurch "catechists" have frequently admitted that Newchurchers know essentially nothing about their faith. The great Catholic educational system, in parochial, religious, and Confraternity of Christian Doctrine classes, was, before Vatican II, the envy of the world, establishing the highest standards of education in the Catholic Faith, the Latin language, and Western Civilization as a whole. That system was demolished by Vatican II and the Modernists who took over the "institutional" Church at that time, which is no longer Catholic.
We TRADITIO Fathers personally know of Newchurchers who have difficulty saying the Our Father and the Hail Mary, even in their vulgar tongue, let alone in the Church's Latin mother tongue. Virtually no Newchurcher now knows by heart the Apostles Creed, the seminal creed of the Catholic Church, which every Catholic before 1960 was required to know by memory. Many do not even know what the Apostles Creed is!
On May 19, 2014, Newvatican admitted that its bank, the so-called Institute for Religious Works, continues to be corrupted by fraud and money-laundering. Newvatican was embarrassed when the annual report of the Financial Information Authority showed a spike in the number of "suspicious" financial transactions being reported in 2013. Suspicious Transaction Reports numbered 202 in 2013, a 330 per cent increase, compared with only six in 2012 and just one in 2011. Five of the the most recent are currently under prosecution.
Francis-Bergoglio, like all heads of state, talks about "transparency," but that is the just line for the press cameras. Behind the scenes he wants to keep things as secret as possible. Bergoglio's bank has been accused of Mafia connections, among other disreputable associations. Bergoglio's personally-appointed bank overseer, Newmonsignor Nunzio Scarano, is currently on trial charged with plotting to smuggle millions of U.S. dollars into Italy from Switzerland in a scheme to help rich friends avoid taxes. Scarano has also been indicted on separate charges of laundering millions through Bergoglio's bank. The bank's director and deputy director, have also been ordered to stand trial on charges of violating anti-money laundering norms. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
Good Catholics, this is the company Francis-Bergoglio still keeps: fraudsters, money-launderers, and Mafia dons. And he dares to call it the "Institute for Religious Works"? One has to wonder just what religion Bergoglio is working for!
26 Italian women have publicly confessed to "loving" New Order presbyters and wanting to start "relationships" with them. Rather than straightening out their moral lives, these women have written to Francis-Bergoglio to ask that he break the law of celibacy for them. They dare to claim that their illicit "love" is "rooted in the Lord." Rather, it is rooted in their own selfishness, which would rather engage in an infamous "relationship" than correct their own immorality. It is as if a woman argued: I really want to kill my unborn baby, so change the law to make it right for me to do!
The 26 women claim that they could help the presbyters in their jobs because they would be "supportive" of the presbyters. This argument is as ridiculous as the one that fornication before marriage is good, whereas in fact those who fornicate before marriage are twice as likely to end the marriage in a few short years.
Protestant ministers and Jewish rabbis have already learned how disastrous a non-celibate clergy is. Divorce rates are high. Adultery is rife. Numerous Protestant pastors have been fired from their ministries for adultery in public scandals. What kind of a "love" is it that breaks God's law so grievously and asks Bergoglio to "bless our loves," immoral as they may be. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by La Presse.]
Even some Catholics have the false notion that clerical celibacy is some whim that can be changed at will by any pope, just as you can have the "Mass of John XXIII," the "Mass of Paul VI," or the "Mass of Pope Whatever" instead of the immemorial Traditional Latin Mass of the Catholic Church. Every Newpope can do his own thing, they say; he doesn't have to follow God's natural moral law, Sacred Scripture, or Sacred Tradition. Such a false notion is just more Modernistic unCatholic claptrap. For further information, click on FAQ10: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Beliefs? in the section "Priestly Celibacy."
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
In recent days the Neo-SSPX's Superior-Dictator Bernie Fellay has protested the canonizations of John XXIII and JPII-Wojtyla, and rightly so, yet he continues to use the corruptions instituted by John XXIII every day in the services that his Neo-SSPX conducts. Shouldn't his pseudo-traditional NSSPX use the true Mass of its namesake, St. Pius X?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Of course, it should. Not to do so makes Fellay a rank hypocrite. But the real reason that he uses the Half New Order Motu/Extraordinary Mess of 1962+ is that if he didn't, the Newchurch of the New Order would have nothing to do with him. Time after time he has corrupted his doctrine, morality, and liturgy to stay in good with his buddies the New Order. It's hypocritical, and it's despicable.
As to the Novus Ordo con-anizations, notice that Fellay may "protest," but as a good Newchurch member, he still prays to these two Unsaints. If he had any guts, he'd say outright that these Novus Ordo con-anizations are frauds. That was Our Lord's way: "But let your speech be yea, yea: no, no: and that which is over and above these, is of evil" (Matthew 5:37/DRV). To nuance words is the characteristic of Modernist Vatican II-ists, of which Fellay, by his speech, demonstrates that he is a card-carrying member.
On May 15, 2014, Newvatican officials quickly tried to downplay Francis-Bergoglio's third MIA episode. The overkill in his spokesman's statement was obvious: "a cold," "no worries," "everything is tranquil," "a minor indisposition." Doth the lady protest too much? Bergoglio canceled his appointments for the rest of the day, and it was not certain whether he would be back in action the next day. The day before Bergoglio had canceled his long-planned trip to the Divino Amore sanctuary south of Rome was scheduled the next following day.
This is at least the third illness in just the first year of so of his Newpapacy. These illnesses are always quickly minimized by spokesmen. Yet one cannot forget that Benedict-Ratzinger had illnesses and eventually abdicated for (as he said) reasons of health. Bergoglio is 77. Ratzinger was 78 when elected.
The truth is that Bergoglio's health isn't that great. As a young man, he suffered from a life-threatening case of pneumonia. He also had part of a lung cut out. That operation was serious enough that Bergoglio doesn't have enough wind to sing a religious service. Perhaps this is why he seems so disease prone. There is a tradition of covering up the serious illnesses of leaders. Even when it was obvious to the world, Newvatican would never admit that JPII-Wojtyla had debilitating Parkinson's Disease. JPI-Luciani was announced to be in good health, but he died in 1978 at age 65 just 33 days after his election.
More evidence has come to light that Francis-Bergoglio hates traditional Catholics when he took the opportunity to slam traditional Catholics as "hard-headed" and "foolish." His statement that "there are voices saying we should go back" reveals that Bergoglio is not a Catholic. There is no "going forward" or "going back" in the true Church, which is Catholic and Apostolic. Bergoglio is here implicitly admitting that the Modernist Vatican II Council was a ruse to change the true Church into some kind of "Newchurch," which is not Catholic.
Bergoglio's remarks were made during a "homily" at his invalid morning Mess on April 16, 2014, staged at his St. Martha's Palace Chapel. Bergoglio went on to say that traditional Catholics are trying to tame the "holy spirit." Beware that the "holy spirit" is Vatican II's phony substitute for the Third Person of the Blessed Trinity, the Holy Ghost. This "spirit" is a Modernist construct that allows the Newchurch of the New Order and its Newpopes to dump Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition and make up a new man-based religion, which they deceptively still call "Catholic" in order keep control and money in their rapidly-sinking sect. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic News Service.]
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I was wondering whether you would offer a Mass of Reparation for the terrible and blasphemous "Black Mass" scheduled at Harvard University. I want to offer a stipend for offering a Mass for this cause.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Harvard University is a Protestant-founded institution; the whole establishment is heretical to begin with. So what is going on there (even though it was subsequently canceled) should be no great surprise.
The salient point -- which everyone has missed in this case -- is that the "Black Mass" described is no more or less than the terrible and blasphemous, not to say invalid, New Order Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "Black Mass" that Newchurchers attend every Sunday. Yet it is these unCatholic Newchurchers who are protesting the Harvard "Black Mass" rather than the "Black New Order Mess" in their own Newparish.
The lesson to be learned from this incident is not that political action is the proper response to such incidents. Rather, if true Catholics had done reparation from the time of the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965), when the "institutional" Catholic Church was essentially replaced with the New Order Protestant Church, we would not have so many abominations as this.
And don't fool yourselves into the notion that the Motu/Extraordinary Mess of 1962+ is any solution to the blasphemous and invalid Newchurch of the New Order. Remember that the phony "Extraordinary" Mess and the Modernist Vatican II Council share the same birthdate: 1962!

There really is a screw loose with the Newpopes. Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla, Co-Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio have all blathered on about baptizing Martians. Apparently, so many people refused be baptized in the paedophile Newchurch of the New Order that these kooky Newpopes have to look to other planets for catechumens.
On May 12, 2014, Bergoglio declared that everyone has the right to be baptized, even aliens, of the extraterrestrial variety, that is, should they come knocking on Newchurch's door. Bergoglio, who is now under investigation before this earth's United Nations Commission on Torture for his complicity in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust against children by his Newclergy, has declared that he will baptize even "green men, with a long nose and big ears [when] an expedition of Martians arrives." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Vatican Radio.]
Good Catholics, if the Newchurch of the New Order continues on its precipitous decline, it will have no more earthlings to corrupt and will have to turn to Martians -- if, that is, the Martians don't vaporize the Third Paedophile Newpope first!
On May 9, 2014, seventeen child victims of sex crimes by Francis-Bergoglio's presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals denounced the treatment that they had received at the hands of Bergoglio's Newvatican and demanded a Commission of Inquiry into Newvatican. Half of the children were former students in a notorious Newchurch-run School for the Deaf in Verona, Italy, where hundreds of children were attacked sexually since 2000 by two dozen presbyters and Newbrothers. There was no response from Bergoglio.
Similar Commissions of Inquiry have been set up in Ireland and Australia and have unearthed much evidence of Newchurch's continuing Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. Bergoglio's 2014 guidelines state that Newbishops have no legal obligation to report crimes against children to the police, and Bergoglio has claimed before two United Nations investigating commissions that he has no responsibility for crimes against children by his worldwide cadre of Newclergy, except when those crimes occur within the less than one square kilometre Vatican City State. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
For those of you who have been wondering what the Neo-SSPX's Bernie Fellay is up to, now we know. Did you think that he was rethinking his pro-Newchurch stance in view of the fact that some 100 of his priests have publicly abandoned him over that stance and gone independent or to The Resistance or to the SSPX of the Strict Observance? Not at all! It turns out that Fellay has been surreptitiously hustling off to Newrome again for talks with the unCatholic officials there.
Reports surfaced in the European press during May 11, 2014, that Fellay was seen at St. Martha's Palace, where Francis-Bergoglio lives and works, hobnobbing with "Mr. Marxist" Bergoglio and his officials and even, according to some reports, "assisting" at a New Order Mess by the unordained/unconsecrated Bergoglio. For five months Fellay had kept this meeting a secret from his clergy and laity.
Now that the cat is out of the bag, Fellay was quick to do damage control in a May 12, 2014, communique. But in his denial, he actually affirmed some very interesting things. Well, yes, I did hustle off to Newrome at the marching orders of the anti-Catholic "Ecclesia Dei" Commission, but, shucks, it was only for an "informal meeting." Well, yes, I and my Executive Council assistants did break bread with Ecclesia Dei's Secretary Newmonsignor Guido Pozzo and Vice President Newarchbishop Augustine Di Noia and their "counterparts" in the St. Martha's Palace dining room. Well, yes, I did meet and chat with Bergoglio, however briefly.
While the clueless press and web sites will dicker over the exact details, they will not highlight the three facts that are indisputable, according to Fellay's own admission in his May 12, 2014, communique:
Good Catholics, here we have Fellay learning nothing from the disastrous public breakdown his Neo-SSPX since the degree of his sellout to the New Order became known after the abdication of Benedict-Ratzinger. Here is Fellay, back again to his old tricks, "dialoguing" with same old New Order anti-Catholics. The belief, whether true or false, obviously thought possible by the clueless press and web sites that Fellay & Co. attended Bergoglio's New Order Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service shows how far most people think that Fellay has already sold out.
Newvatican issued an official warning on May 8, 2014, that it has no job openings. Thus, announcements from Italian employment firms that claim to have Newvatican job openings listed are erroneous. "New appointments are not expected at this time," says Newvatican. In its official communique, Newvatican referred cryptically to "this period of crisis."
Does "this period of crisis" refer to a crisis in Newvatican funding, which is known to be declining steeply because of the hordes of Newchurchers leaving Francis-Bergoglio's New Order sect over its Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust and other reasons? With the "Francis Effect" rapidly fading, is Newvatican running out of money?
In January 2013 Newvatican's ATM machines were cut off by the Italian banks because of corruption in the Newvatican Bank, and that bank is still under investigation for fraud by European financial regulators. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
U.S. Hispanics have been leaving Newchurch in droves, and that number is rising, down 12 per cent in just three years, according to a new study released on May 7, 2014, by the respected Pew Research Center. A quarter of the 35,000,000 U.S. Hispanics now describe themselves as "former" Newchurchers. 45 per cent are Protestant or non-religious. The tendency to leave Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch was most pronounced among younger Hispanics, suggesting that the decline would accelerate.
The U.S. Newbishops must have been shocked at how quickly Hispanics are abandoning Newchurch, because these Newbishops, having already lost true Catholics since the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965), are increasingly turning to Hispanics, particularly illegal aliens, to fund their now Modernistic/Liberalistic programmes. Hispanics now make up one-third of Newchurch in the United States.
Ironically, 83 per cent of Hispanics think favorably of Bergoglio, while at the same time they are leaving his Newchurch in droves. The much touted "Francis Effect" is thus proven to be a fraud. In fact, it has just the opposite effect upon Newchurch affiliation: the more Hispanics like Bergoglio, the less they want to be part of his New Order sect. Go figure!

Francis-Bergoglio's United Nation's Ambassador, Newarchbishop Silvano Tomasi, admitted on May 6, 2014, before the U.N. Commission on Torture meeting in Geneva, Switzerland, that almost 3,500 presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals have been involved in sex crimes against children since 2004. And you know that if Newchurch admits to 3,500, the number of those involved is probably about ten times that number: 35,000. Newvatican's heavily-propagandized "corrections" have failed dismally. The Commission elicited the figures while grilling Tomasi, who also admitted that sexual violence against children can be considered as torture under the treaty. The U.N. Commission is examining whether Francis-Bergoglio's Newvatican has breached its obligations under the Treaty against Torture that Newvatican signed.
During the second day of the hearing, the Commission blasted Newvatican's practice of transferring criminal clergymen from Newparish to Newparish in an effort to cover up their crimes. Bergoglio has tried to get off scot free from responsibility for the rape, sodomy, and sexual assaults by his sect's presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals by claiming that the treaty applies only within the half-square-kilometre Vatican City State. Bergoglio has essentially rejected his purported Universal Jurisdiction over all of the Newchurch of the New Order. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Irish Press Television.]
Good Catholics, for all the expensive propaganda that Bergoglio and his Newchurch have been putting out, the fact is that nothing has changed. From the Newpope down, Newchurch clergy continue to rape and sodomize children and/or support and cover up such crimes. Bergoglio, with his overt efforts to get off scot free, is even more despicable than his predecessor, Co-Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger.
Harvard University in the United States, which was recently embarrassed by publishing the "Gospel of Jesus' Wife," now proven a forgery (see May 6, 2014, Daily Commentaries), has become involved in yet another imbroglio. A Satanic "Black Mass" is scheduled to take place at the university on May 12, with the "mass" simulated by The Satanic Temple, which is being hosted for the event by the Harvard Extension Cultural Studies Club.
The bulletin advertising the event indicates that "a non-consecrated communion host will be used in the reenactment." Of course, all Newchurch hosts are "non-consecrated" because the Newchurch "Ordinary Mess" is invalid, and their clergy are not ordained priests, but installed presbyter-ministers. The "Black Mass" is, of course, not a Mass, but a parody of the true Mass, performed by Satanists since the Middle Ages.
The advertising bulletin contains an image of a goat-headed, Satanic figure standing on an altar surrounded by damned souls. So controversial is the event that the Harvard Extension School has published an "Official Response to Cultural Studies Event," which states: "An independent student organization, the Harvard Extension Cultural Studies Club, plans to host a controversial student event involving a historical reenactment of a black mass ceremony that has a narrator providing historical context and background." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Service.]
Good Catholics, it is the height of irony that Harvard University was founded in 1639 through a financial gift from the Protestant clergyman John Harvard. In its early decades, Harvard trained many Protestant ministers who went on to serve the various Christian sects of New England. The Satanic Temple is the same group that is trying to have a statue of Satan, depicted as the demon Baphomet, installed on the grounds of the Oklahoma State Capitol.
If you thought that the Novus Ordo con-anizations of John XXIII and JPII-Wojtyla proved that Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch was no longer Catholic, get ready for the next travesty. Bergoglio wants to call Paul VI-Montini, the Newpope who approved all of the Modernist Vatican II Council documents, "Blessed." Not only did this Newpope, more than any other, destroy the Catholic Church in the "institutional Church" (now the Newchurch of the New Order), but for the last fifty years there have been persistent accounts from Newvatican sources that Montini was a practicing homosexual, caught trolling the "gay" brothels of Newrome.
On May 6, 2014, the Newchurch Congregation for the Causes of [Un]saints has approved fabricated a Novus Ordo "miracle" for Montini, and Bergoglio is expected quickly to approve it and schedule the Novus Ordo "beatification" of Montini for October 19, 2014, to conclude the meeting of the Synod of Newbishops. Montini's body is barely cold. He died in 1978, but Newchurch can't wait to rush him through the debased process of Novus Ordo unsanctification. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by La Stampa.]
Good Catholics, the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio wants to approve the Modernist Vatican II Council that destroyed the Catholic Church by claiming that the recent Newpopes associated with it were "saints." So, Newchurch -- which is certainly not the Catholic Church -- will have a purported homosexual Unsaint to add to the Unsainted Second Paedophile Newpope, JPII-Wojtyla. This is the sewer that is the Newchurch of the New Order and of Bergoglio. No true Catholic can have anything to do with it.
On May 5, 2014, the United Nations Commission against Torture hauled Francis-Bergoglio's mouthpiece, Silvano Tomaso, Bergoglio's U.N. Permanent Observer, before the Commission in Geneva, Switzerland, to answer for Newchurch's responsibility for the torture and inhumane treatment of children by its Newpopes, Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters. Newvatican is a signatory to the 2002 anti-torture treaty.
Before the Commission Bergoglio's Newvatican still wouldn't take any responsibility for directing its Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust against children. The hypocritical Bergoglio claimed that he is responsible for crimes only when committed within the walls of his little Vatican City State, comprising less than half a square kilometre, making it the smallest country in the world under its treaty with the Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini in 1929. Tomasi proclaimed in Bergoglio's name: "The Holy See [sic] intends to focus exclusively on Vatican City State."
Newvatican was denounced by the Commission for waiting nine years to make a report on the crimes. After two hours of cross-examination, Tomasi was ordered to return the following day for more. Another United Nations Commission in January 2014 had blasted Bergoglio's Newvatican for "placing its own interests over those of victims by enabling pr[esbyters] to rape and molest tens of thousands of children through its own policies and code of silence." That Commission already rejected as "disingenuous" Bergoglio's argument that he controls only the Vatican City State, not all his Newclergy ministers around the world.
If the a U.N. Commission finds that Newvatican's systemic crimes against children amount to torture and inhuman treatment, that finding could open the floodgates to lawsuits against Newchurch dating back decades because there are no statute of limitations on torture cases. Rape and sodomy of children legally can constitute a form of torture because of the elements of intimidation, coercion, and exploitation of power. Bergoglio's argument, that the torture treaty covers only the Vatican City State, not the "Holy See," which is the governing structure of the Universal Church, was rejected as untenable by the Commissioners because as Newpope Bergoglio claims to have "Universal Jurisdiction." The Commission, which is composed of independent experts, will issue its final observations and recommendations May 23. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
Good Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio is not concerned about the rape of children by his ministers. He cares only about legalisms that will exempt him from responsibility as Top Dog. If he claims to have "Universal Jurisdiction," then he is an accomplice to torture of children. It's that simple. But Francis the Hypocrite, the Third Paedophile Newpope, plays the excuse game even better than his predecessors, "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla, the First Paedophile Newpope, and "Co-Newpope" Benedict-Ratzinger, the Second Paedophile Newpope.
In January 2014 the Satanic Temple announced plans to erect a monument glorifying Satan in opposition to the monument to the Ten Commandments already placed outside the Capitol building in 2012. The Temple quickly raised the 30,000 dollars to build the statue.
On May 2, 2014, the Satanic Temple announced that a New York sculptor has been engaged and is currently creating the statue. The Baphomet figure, two metres tall, will eventually sit beneath the pentagram and be flanked by two children gazing upward in loyalty. It is to be cast in bronze.
The Satanic statue is a direct response to the state's installation of a Ten Commandments monument outside the Capitol in 2012. The Satanic statue is supposed to placed next to the Ten Commandments monument. The so-called American Civil Liberties Union is currently fighting the monument to the Ten Commandments in court.
We've all heard of the hoaxes perpetrated against orthodox Christianity: the "Lost Gospels," the "Ossuary of James, Brother of Jesus," the "Jesus Seminar," and now the "Wife of Jesus." It seems that the godless will cling to anything unorthodox that undermines the 2000-year proofs of traditional Christianity. These hoaxes provide fodder even for those who should know better, like the so-called History Channel, which more often displays stories based in bad scholarship and even in outright lies. One by one these hoaxes have been show up as hoaxes by scholarship.
The latest case in point was a purported third- or fourth-century Coptic papyrus supposedly mentioning the "wife of Jesus," now disproven as an outright fraud. Although scholars had raised substantial question about the authenticity of the papyrus, describing it as "bad to the point of being farcical or fobbish," the Harvard Theological Review went ahead and published it anyway in September 2012, generating enormous media coverage. Coptic is the form of Egyptian, written in Greek letters, that was spoken and written in the time of Christ, having derived from the earlier form memorialized in Egyptian hieroglyphics.
Having now had a year and a half to study the fragment, Coptic scholars have declared the fragment, which had been called all too hastily dubbed the "Gospel of Jesus' Wife," a forgery, a copy of another forgery, photoshopped from an online PDF of the equally fraudulent "Gospel of Thomas." The scholars concluded that Harvard Divinity School was the victim of an elaborate ruse, which was brought to light in a May 2, 2014, New York Times article. As a result, Harvard University has been left dripping with egg down its face, exposed as being more interested in generating publicity for the hoax than in doing actual scholarship.
Good Catholics, it seems that the godless were justly hoist by their own petard. They and the religiously-clueless media rushed to embrace the idea that Jesus had a wife and that Christian beliefs have been mistaken for centuries. No evidence for Jesus having been married exists in any of the thousands of orthodox biblical writings dating to antiquity. This episode should be a required case study in graduate schools long into the future against biased scholarship and the gullibility of liberalist "scholars."
On April 11, 2014, as the sixth and last step in a long judicial process, the Regional Superior Court of Nuremberg, Germany, confirmed its judgment in the case of Bishop Richard Williamson, formerly senior bishop of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) and now an independent traditional Catholic bishop associated with the SSPX of the Strict Observance and The Resistance (to the Neo-SSPX's Superior-Dictator Bernie Fellay).
The court rejected Bishop Williamson's final appeal on September 23, 2013, against a 2,500 U.S. dollar fine imposed by the trial court on January 16, 2013. The final appeal was dismissed on April 11, 2014, after a "review" of the judgment, which "did not reveal any procedural error to the detriment of the accused." Unless Bishop Williamson files an appeal with the European Court in the next four weeks, the judgment will become final. The amount of the fine has been reduced over the appeals process about one-tenth of the original assessment, because members of the international community had been knocking Germany for its violation of Williamson's free-speech rights.
The whole process has been a joke, some say orchestrated by Co-Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger, who hails from that southeastern area of Germany. When the court rendered its original judgment, the judge was hardly gone for a few minutes before returning with a multi-page "verdict." Obviously, the fix was in. The charge is commonly referred to as "holocaust denial," which in itself is ridiculous, as Williamson has not even denied the "holocaust" of World War II, but merely questioned the factual basis of exaggerated figures that have grown leaps and bounds since the mid 1940s, some say as a result of a political agenda of liberalist Jewish groups composed of members who rarely, if ever attend, synagogue, but are politically attached to the modern state of Israel.
Good Catholics, it is obvious that Newvatican (Benedict-Ratzinger) and Menzingen (Bernie Fellay) had it in for the courageous traditional Catholic bishop. They had to get him out of the way, not because of some feigned "holocaust" denial -- in which, after all, Fellay himself has participated, as well as the once Nazi-uniformed young Ratzinger -- but because Williamson had to be jettisoned as he stood in the way of Fellay selling out Archbishop Lefebvre's once-traditional Catholic organization to Ratzinger. In the end, it was Williamson who won, as the sellout deal justly feel through anyway.
When the traditionally-bent bishop of Limburg, Germany, Franz-Peter Tebartz-van Elst, restored historic churches and built a Newdiocesan center, containing convents, meeting rooms, chapels, and administrative offices, Francis-Bergoglio fired him because he was deemed a "spendthrift," and Bergoglio needed a fall-guy for his own extravagance. Then there were the scandals of Bergoglio's Newarchbishops John Myers, of Newark, New Jersey, and Wilton Gregory, of Atlanta, Georgia, who spent millions of dollars on their personal palaces. Bergoglio said nothing about these two spendthrifts.
Now Bergoglio's extravangance has been exposed once again. He is renovating an expensive and luxurious retirement palace for Newcardinal Tarcisio Bertone, who used to be Benedict-Ratzinger's Secretary of State. Of course, Ratzinger got a ritzy retirement palace of his own, right in the Vatican Gardens.
The Italian press has been raking Bertone -- and Bergoglio -- over the coals for their hypocrisy. So virulent has been the criticism against the two that on April 29, 2014, Bertone lashed out with an open letter, in which he stated that Bergoglio was completely on board with the current remodeling of the 600-square-metre St. Charles's Palace. Bertone claimed that Bergoglio summoned him on April 21, 2014, to tell him that he supported Bertone and gave his personal okay to his extravagant new digs. Bertone is going to have three "nuns" to live with him in the palace and to wait on him hand and foot. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
Good Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio is a hypocrite, who will target a hard-working traditionally-bent bishop, but lavish a former Newvatican high official with a palace and live-in "nuns" to pander to him. Bergoglio and his Newchurch of the New Order should make ever true Catholic sick to his stomach!
As a Marxist from Argentina, Francis-Bergoglio has railed against the "tyranny of global capitalism" and the "idolatry of money." But the hypocrital Newpope didn't hesitate to put the squeeze on a major bank (Intesa SanPaolo), an oil and gas giant (Ene/Enel), and an international food conglomerate (Nestle) to fund his shivaree to Novus Ordo con-anize the "Unsaints" John XXIII and JPII-Wojtyla on April 27, 2014.
The problem is that the Newchurch of the New Order is not popular. Mess attendance is plummeting, and collection-plates are dwindling because of Newchurch's ongoing Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. Newpope's Newvatican is broke, posting an 18,400,000 U.S. dollar loss in the last year reported (2011). [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by CNBC News.]
It was just six months ago that Bergoglio launched an attack on the global economic system. One Newvatican archbishop tried to excuse Bergoglio's hypocrisy by uttering something close to blasphemy: "You can't pay bills with holy cards." Maybe if Bergoglio and his godless Newchurch had any of those holy cards, not to speak of any true Catholicism, left, they might have gotten some Divine help to escape the pickle in which they now find themselves!
In a criminal case that sounds like repeat of what Rembert Weakland, Newarchbishop of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, perpetrated in 2002, the Chancellor of Manchester, New Hampshire, Newmonsignor Edward Arsenault, was sentenced on April 23, 2014, to four years in the iron-barred hotel for three felony counts of embezzling money out of the Newchurch collection-plate to support his catamite in "gay" style, as it were. Arsenault pled guilty and admitted to perpetrating the crimes.
A Newdiocesan whistleblower reported in January 2013 that Arsenault was being blackmailed by his catamite, just as Rembert Weakland had been. Weakland had also stolen half a million dollars from the collection-plate to pay his catamite hush-money, but the sharp fop accepted the hush-money and then ratted Newarchbishop Weakland out anyway. "There is no honor among thieves," they say.
And who is Newmonsignor Arsenault's "boy," to whom he was paying the stolen money for "services rendered," shall we say? He is Luke Parkin, a young homosexual performer. Arsenault lavished the Newchurch collection money upon his catamite to the tune of several hundreds of thousands of dollars, by billing the boy's expenses to the Newdiocese. According to the prosecutor in the case, Parkin is not facing criminal charges -- yet. After all, receiving stolen goods is also a felony. Did he never ask the penurious presbyter whence came the 300,000 dollars lavished upon the "boy"?
The state Attorney General's investigation found that between 2007 and early 2009, Arsenault billed the clueless Newdiocese for numerous expenses related the maintenance of his "boy" Parkin:
Good Catholics, nothing has changed in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocast from 2004 to 2014. The Newmonsignor's "boy" claimed in an interview with WierdMusic to be "religious." That must be Newchurch's new term for sodomy!
Although Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurchers are clueless about the Catholic Faith, the secular world is getting the message. Nothing about the Newchurch of the New Order is Catholic. And that includes its phony "Unsaints." On the eve of the Novus Ordo con-anizations of John XXIII and the First Paedophile Newpope, JPII-Wojtyla, the New York Times has slammed the latter for being particularly unsaintly.
What Bergoglio is doing in perpetrating the scam about thes Novus Ordo "Unsaints" is causing grave scandal around the world. How can an institutional supporter of paedophilia be a "Saint? The answer is, of course, that he cannot. The Times did not hesitate to tick off the components of the Newchurch hoax pertaining to the First Paedophile Newpope Wojtyla:
Good Catholics, the Newvatican's propaganda machine against Catholic doctrine and morals will be in full swing on the phony New Order "Divine Mercy Sunday," April 27, 2014, when the two Newpopes will be con-anized. You don't have to act like a sheep and take all the propaganda in from the Marxist Newpope of the anti-Catholic Newchurch, Francis-Bergoglio. Shut off your television set and pray a Holy Hour at your traditional Catholic church, chapel, or oratory against Bergoglio's anti-Catholic Newchurch on the traditional Sunday in White, April 27, 2014.
