The Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity announced on July 26, 2014, that Francis-Bergoglio plans to "reform" the Newpapacy in order to join with the schismatic Eastern Orthodox sects. Bergoglio is expected to give up his "supremacy" in favor of "synodality," apparently meaning that doctrinal and other propositions will be voted upon in synods, as the Protestant sects do now.
It is through the "synodal" method that these sects have introduced abortion, contraception, divorce, homosexuality, priestesses, and bishopesses. Bergoglio wants the Newpapacy to be "no longer feared." (Apparently, only traditional Catholics are supposed to fear that the Newpapacy will pull out from under them what little rug remains!) Newchurch's Synod of Bishops is the brainchild of the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965).
Good Catholics, many of you wonder whether Francis-Bergoglio is a real pope. This announcement apparently indicates that Bergoglio himself really doesn't consider himself a pope, at least in the traditional dogmatic sense. Bergoglio is quickly tearing down doctrine, morality, and worship rock by rock in his Newchurch of the New Order.
French priests who have abandoned Bernie Fellay, Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX, met for the third time July 22-23, 2014, at Avrille, France, to organize expansion of their activities to bring independent traditional Catholicism to the Catholics of France in place of Fellay, who has indicated his desire to sell out to the Newchurch of the New Order. The French priests are just one part, but a significant part, of "The Resistance," a term that refers to the hundred priests that have abandoned Fellay. The Dominican Priory of Avrille has been serving as the headquarters of the French Resistance.
Despite Fellay's denials and disguises, his ambitions to join the Newchurch of the New Order and to wear Novus Ordo purple continues unabated. His Second Assistant is reported to have described Fellay's policy in these words: "The [Neo-SSPX] train is leaving for [New]Rome, and those who want to get off will get off."
The SSPX's former senior bishop, Richard Williamson, is the unofficial leader of The Resistance. He persuaded the organizers of the Avrille meeting to include priests from outside France, so that they would be encouraged to see how The Resistance is growing in France. The Resistance has also been growing by leaps and bounds in the United States and in Australasia.
The French priests chose the "Priestly Union of Marcel Lefebvre" for their name, a name that announces clearly their orientation. The question of the consecration of new independent traditional bishops was discussed, as Bishop Williamson had requested to know the mind of the priests present on that subject. By an almost unanimous vote, the priests indicated that the time for such consecrations is not far off. Bishop Williamson has previously signaled that he would be willing to perform consecrations of new bishops to serve the independent Traditional Catholic Movement.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Even a blind man can see that New Mess of 1969, which was declared by Benedict-Ratzinger to be the "Ordinary Mess" of Newchurch, is invalid, as it lacks the form, matter, and/or intention of a valid Mass and is actually based upon heretical Protestant models. But there is that strange creature called the "1962 Mess," now sometimes called by the grossly unCatholic term "Extraordinary" (aka the "Indult" or "Motu" Mess). But does using the "1962 Missal" make the Mass invalid?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
The 1962 Mess is a creature of the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini and the New Order that replaced the "institutional" Catholic Church starting in that year at the Modernist Vatican II Council. The Half New Order Vatican II 1962 Mess was used Bugnini as a stepping-stone to ensure that Catholics could more be deluded into accepting the full-blown Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New Mess" of 1969, which is unquestionably invalid. Thus, the 1962 Mess is a fraud intended to lead Catholics into heresy. Thus, true Catholics are bound to shun this unCatholic fraud.
Although, technically, the 1962 Mess is not in itself invalid, its celebration is usually invalid because those who celebrate it are not priests ordained in the valid traditional Sacrament of Holy Orders, but merely presbyters (ministers) "installed" under the invalid Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968 adopted by the Newchurch of the New Order. Thus, every 1962 Mess simulated by Newchurch presbyters is invalid because an ordained Catholic priest is not celebrating it.
The case of Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX is a middle case, in that the NSSPX has some priests (though it has recently been reported that Fellay is beginning to import invalid presbyters imported from the New Order sect into some of his NSSPX sites), yet the Neo-SSPX uses the heresy-leaning 1962 Mess. True Catholics should shun both the 1962 Mess and the NSSPX for the New Order-bent frauds that they both are.
One of the places where Catholicism and sex are most strongly associated is the area of vowed religious life, with some communities for only men and other communities for only women. But now Newchurch will break the bonds of nature by accepting into its London, Ontario, Newcarmelite nunnery a "transsexual" woman. She is not the first, however. Raymond "Bully" Burke, Newbishop of LaCrosse, Wisconsin, consecrated Julie Green as a Newfranciscan nun in 2002 under the regime of the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla.
Tia Pesando, who openly identifies with the Lesbian-Gay-Bisexual-Transsexual community, naturally tries to give her status the imprimatur of Francis-Bergoglio, who says that he can't judge homosexuality. Maybe he can't, but God can, and does, in numerous passages of the Bible, which are ignored by the Modernists, who now openly despise the Bible and its teachings. Pesando proclaims: "The time is right for a transgender nun." And Bergoglio's false teaching is responsible. Naturally, Pesando effuses about the God of Love, but the God of Love is also the God of Just Judgment, the God of Justice, the God of Truth, and the God of Nature. "Nun" Pesando doesn't mention that. Pesando lived for thirty years as a man, then decided to "transition" to become a woman.
Earlier in July 2014 the Newchurch archdiocese of Vancouver, Canada, announced a new policy that would allow elementary-school pupils to pick their own sex and use the bathrooms of that sex. The irony is that under the law these children cannot give legal consent to sex, but they can determine their "gender." Even science tells us that sex, or as the Liberalist/Modernists like to call it, "gender," is God-given at conception. It is not a "choice." Vancouver's Newarchbishop John Miller admitted that his policy is a violation of Catholic moral teaching that sex (gender) is given by God and that the body reveals the divine plan. As such, humans are not free to choose or change their sex. But Miller doesn't care. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Bondings.]
Good Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order is completely perverted. Mainline Protestantism is looking far more moral, far more Christian, far more Biblical than the fabricated, unCatholic Newchurch of the New Order.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Fernando Areas Rifan was a fighter for the traditional Catholic Faith before he was appointed by the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla to take over in 2002 the Fraternity of St. John Mary Vianney, an "Indult" pseudo-traditional organization. By that time he had flipped from the traditional Catholicism of Bishop Antonio de Castro Mayer, of Campos, Brazil, the associate of traditional Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, and succumbed to Newchurch, the Modernist Vatican II Council, and the New Mess, which he was photograph by news media con-celebrating, a fact that he denied until his lie was exposed by the photograph.
The case of Rifan and the pseudo-traditional Fraternity of St. John Vianney (FSJV) shows that anything that was once traditional, after being touched by the corruption of Newchurch, is bound to flip over to the New Order. What causes once-traditional bishops to fall into the corruption and invalidity of the Newchurch of the New Order?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Actually, Fellay was never a "fighter" for traditional Catholicism. He may never really have been a traditional bishop. There is some evidence that he was a Modernist-leaning mole, who infiltrated the Society of St. Pius X to lead it surreptitiously to the New Order. In 1988 he was a fallback selection, pushed by Swiss moneyed interests, whom he still represents, when Archbishop Lefebvre's first selection declined consecration out of humility. Fellay was Lefebvre's bookkeeper with scandalously little pastoral experience to qualify him for an episcopacy.
Why do traditional bishops fall for the unCatholic and invalid Newchurch of the New Order, you ask? Because they were never really committed traditional Catholics to begin with. Because their crass ambition easily succumbed to the blandishments of Newchurch. Fellay, we know, was promised to be Superior-Dictator of Traditional Catholicism, if an agreement had been reached with Benedict-Ratzinger. Fellay still hankers after his personal dictatorship, as well as Newchurch purple, or even scarlet.
Francis-Bergoglio has made it clear that he hates traditional Catholics, calling them various nasty names, but, in addition to his homosexual and Marxist personal friends, he is a close personal friend of Pentecostal heretics. One of these Pentecostals, "Bishop" Tony Palmer, recently called upon Protestants to flip over to become Protestantized Newchurchers. On July 20, 2014, Palmer has died in a motorcycle crash.
Palmer, a Protestant Pentecostal "bishop," had called upon Protestants to unite with the now-Protestantized Newchurch system. He claimed to be a "prophet in the spirit of Elias" (or as the Protestants call him, Elijah) with a mission to submerge Newchurch in Protestant Pentecostal Evangelicalism. Palmer came to international attention when Francis-Bergoglio sent him as his special envoy to a January 2014 Charismatic Evangelical Leadership Conference. By designating an Pentecostal as his Newpapal envoy, Bergoglio committed an unprecedented act of syncretism condemned by the Catholic Church as a violation of the First Commandment of God.
"Bishop" Palmer rejected the traditionalist slant of the Anglican sect, a slant that is growing in popularity, and was happy become a Pentecostal quasi-Anglican to ordain priestesses. Palmer identified himself as one who wished to alter the historic Christian Faith according to the "spirit of the age." It is in this spirit that the Anglicans have accepted abortion, contraception, divorce and remarriage, flaming homosexual priests and bishops, priestesses, and, most recently, bishopesses. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Christian Today.]
Good Catholics, according to the old saying, "birds of a feather flock together." By his own statements, Bergoglio shares the same feathers with homosexuals, Marxists, and Charismatic-Pentecostal-Evangelicals. It appears that there is no real Catholicism left in him. Perhaps there never was any.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Having converted from Protestantism straight into traditional Catholicism, I never have really experienced the nonsense that is the New Order sect, a fact that I am eternally grateful to God for.
Not only is the unCatholic Newpope Francis-Bergoglio and his followers bent on the destruction of the One True Church, but they are even attacking the great Saints and Doctors of the Church, as I found out when someone posted a piece about St. Joan of Arc on her feast day. However, for the picture they choose to use actress Milla Jovovich, who plays St. Joan in the movie The Messenger. I replied to the post by saying, "If you are going to pick a representation of Joan of Arc, don't pick one from a movie that shows Joan of Arc as a mad, bloodthirsty woman who was some sort of raving lunatic."
The movie does not give any sort of religious message to St. Joan's voices, nor do they depict her as the humble and pious religious person that cried because she feared her enemies died without Confession or without Communion, as confirmed by numerous historians of the time. Rather, the producers of the movie depict her as some mad woman with a blood lust and her voices as the delusion of a sick and twisted mind. Newchurchers were quick to append their anti-Catholic comments, like the following:
These comments from clueless Newchurchers again prove what you have said time and time again on the TRADITIO Network. The New Order sect first destroyed the Catholic religion, then it destroyed the Catholic Sacraments, then it destroyed Catholic practice. Now it is destroying the Catholic Saints. How long before it starts to worship Satan directly?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
According to the noted traditional Catholic priest, traditional Jesuit, and Vatican insider Malachi Martin, Newchurch already worships Satan. Martin opens his Windswept House, by vividly describing a Satanic ceremony called "The Enthronement of the Fallen Archangel Lucifer" held in St. Paul's Chapel within the Vatican on June 29, 1963, barely a week after the election of Newpope Paul VI-Montini, who signed all the documents replacing the Catholic Church with the Newchurch of the New Order. Fr. Martin later confirmed to the New American magazine that the ceremony in fact had occurred as he had described: "Oh yes, it is true; very much so." For further information, click on WIND: Who's Who in Windswept House: A Key to the Characters in Fr. Malachi Martin's Windswept House.
Nine years later, on June 29, 1972, after the Vatican II Council's replacement of the Catholic Church by the Newchurch of the New Order, even Paul VI himself admitted that by the stratagem of that Council "the smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God."
It is well known that Francis-Bergoglio, in his programme of suppressing traditional Catholicism, has condemned the Franciscans of the Immaculate, abolished their Motu "Latin Messes" -- which, to be sure, are not the valid Traditional Latin Mass, but the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II Mess of 1962, aka "Extraordinary" -- and closed their conservative seminary. Now he has turned his condemnation to a Newdiocese, that of Ciudad del Este in Paraguay.
This Newdiocese is one of the most conservative and has a Motu "Latin Mess" in most Newparishes. Novus Ordo "vocations" were on an upswing. Bergoglio cannot allow this and wants to make an example of this Newdiocese, lest any others follow its more conservative bent. So, he has ordered a rigorous inquisition of the Newdiocese. It covers an area of nearly 30,000 square kilometres and holds 700,000 Catholics. This number represents 98 per cent of the population.
Bergoglio has sent several Modernist/Liberalist bishops from Newepiscopal Conference to be Inquisitors. This selection is probably payback for the fact that Ciudad del Este's Newbishop, Rogelio Livieres, called out the Newarchbishop of Asuncion, Paraguay, as a paedophile. The Newpapal Inquisition will take place July 21-26, 2014, after which it is anticipated that vestiges of "traditionalist" practices will be extirpated. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Katholiches News Service.]
Good Catholics, Bergoglio's hatred of traditional Catholicism and the "Latin Mess" are becoming even clearer. By these examples Bergoglio sends a chilling message to his New Order sect: Traditionalists Be Damned!
On July 18, 2014, in the twentieth year of its apostolate on the internet, the TRADITIO Network logged its 22,000,000th reader. TRADITIO was the first traditional Roman Catholic site to appear on the World Wide Web and was founded on the Feastday of St. Michael the Archangel, September 29, 1994. We were here even before Newvatican was, even before Amazon.com was!
We thank the Lord for our over 22,000,000 readers over these years and for our hundreds of dedicated correspondents from all over the world, who keep us current on everything going on in the bowels of Newvatican, in the inner sancta of various traditional organizations, and at Traditional Latin Mass sites around the world. TRADITIO was determined by an Alexis-Amazon statistical survey to be the most read traditional Roman Catholic web site on the World Wide Web.
In their Daily Commentaries, the TRADITIO Fathers do not just copy news reports or the uninformed notions of johnny-come-lately "bloggers" in secular and religious publications, who in fact have very little background or understanding of the Traditional Catholic Movement. Nor is TRADITIO Network enslaved to any particular organization's viewpoint. Instead, the TRADITIO Network provides the hard-hitting, independent analysis and perspective of over half a century of Roman Catholic experience, even from before Vatican II.
The TRADITIO Network is avidly read within the highest bowels of at Newrome and Menzingen (NSSPX). In addition to the Daily Commentaries from the Fathers, including lively commentary on Church news from the traditional perspective, TRADITIO's other fifteen departments provide resources and materials for its readers to study and learn about the traditional Roman Catholic Faith.
We are particularly touched by the many thousands of messages that we have received from Newchurchers of the New Order, including Motarians, who say that they have been converted to the traditional Roman Catholic Faith because of TRADITIO's uncompromising, independent commentaries and materials. The TRADITIO Network is one of many means through which Our Lord appears be working out the Traditional Catholic Restoration of the 21st century.
Francis-Bergoglio has now waded into the political realm in calling upon the United States to embrace illegal immigrants. At one time a pope would encourage everyone to follow the law. But not Bergoglio. As tens of thousands of illegals stream into the U.S. from Nicaragua, Guatemala, and other Central American countries, public resources have been strained, and those legally entitled to public assistance, like disabled veterans, are refused assistance. Bergoglio failed to mention this fact.
The United States, which has been the most welcoming country in the entire world to legal immigrants is denounced by Bergoglio for being "xenophobic" and "racist." Isn't that what the Liberalist/Modernists always call conservatives, and yet it is the former who are demonstrably more "racist." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Breitbart.]
Good Catholics, here we have more evidence that Francis-Bergoglio is steeped in Marxism, which delights in fomenting anarchy in countries around the world. Bergoglio is also a member of the Newjesuit order, which after the Vatican II Council took up arms to overthrow conservative governments in Latin America. Why doesn't Bergoglio open his own Newvatican to the illegals and fly them over on the Newpapal jet to sleep in his St. Martha's Palace? Then maybe he'd show some sincerity!
Just when you think that Francis-Bergoglio's New Order sect can't get any more unCatholic, more unChristian, more perverted, something comes up that smashes that assumption to smithereens. Now Newarchbishop John Miller, of Vancouver, Canada, and his Catholic [Sic] School System have decreed that as of July 17, 2014, boys shall use girls' restrooms, and presumably vice versa, if they think that God made them the wrong "gender." They have even come up with a new scientific-sounding term to describe this situation: gender dysphoria, that is, a dissatisfaction with one's sex. This is a typical Liberalist/Modernist ploy, to coat perversion with pseudo-scientific terminology.
It all started with an 11-year-old "transgendered" pupil, who was born as a boy but now prefers to live as a girl. The irony is that under the law this boy cannot give legal consent to sex, but he can determine his "gender." Newchurch now says that he can use the girls' restroom because he "prefers" to be a girl. So this is far from an medical condition; it is a preference. The policy applies to pupils who "express their gender in ways that are different from prevailing stereotypes." Doesn't that sound pure Liberalist/Modernist claptrap? Sex, or as the Liberalist/Modernists like to call it, "gender," is God-given at conception, so science tells us. It is not a "preference." "Dysphoric" pupils may also change their names and dress in clothes of the opposite sex, if they wish. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Vancouver Globe and Mail.]
Good Catholics, Newarchbishop Miller admits that his policy is a violation of Catholic moral teaching that sex (gender) is given by God and that the body reveals the divine plan. As such, humans are not free to choose or change their sex. But Miller doesn't care. He wimped out on his consecration oath -- oops, Newchurch bishops haven't been consecrated since 1968 -- or maybe he's just a flaming Liberalist/Modernist like the rest of the Newchurch hierarchy. Meanwhile, the once envied Catholic school system has become a joke in the hands of the New Order sect.
Presbyter Thomas Ladner taught his students in the Newdiocese of Innsbruck, Austria, about the Catholic dogma of Purgatory and Hell. As a result, he was fired from teaching by the Newbishop's representative for schools. You see, in Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order, it is a firing offense to teach Catholic doctrine.
The Newbishop's representative revoked presbyter Ladner's teaching permit and condemned his teaching as vorsinflutlich, not just "out of date," but "antedeluvian"! The Catholic dogma is not "up to date"; it is too traditional. This is how Francis-Bergoglio's sect looks at Catholic dogma from 2,000 years of Catholic popes, councils, and doctors of the ChurchL Don't you dare teach Catholicism, or we'll fire your posterior faster than the fires of Hell that you can't teach about!
Even the mayor of the presbyter's Austrian town and its congregation were outraged at the highhanded and illegal action. They have expressed their outrage to Newbishop Manfred Scheuer, but to no avail. If the New Order sect and its Newbishops are anything, they are stubborn, nasty, and hypocritical, not the lovey-dovey types the Liberalists/Modernists falsely portray them as. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Katholische Nachrichten.]
Good Catholics, there is no Catholicism left in Newchurch, except for a little vapid window-dressing to extort the Newchurchers' money. Bergoglio and his New Order sect hate Catholicism, hate Christianity, and hate those who dare to support it uncompromisingly. They will extirpate what little remains of Catholicism in the harshest possible way. No true Catholic can in any way be associated with this false sect, now under Bergoglio additionally tainted with Marxism and homophilia.
Fr. Francois Chazal, one of some hundred priests who abandoned the Neo-SSPX's Superior-Dictator Bernie Fellay when Fellay wanted to take the NSSPX into the New Order sect, reports on July 7, 2014, from Australasia, where he has been doing organizational work for The Resistance, the generic name for those priests and congregations that have gone independent from Fellay, nominally led by Bishop Richard Williamson, formerly the Neo-SSPX's senior bishop.
Fr. Chazal reports that Fellay's Liberalist-Militant wing, which was promised a "deal" with Newrome, are getting impatient. They want to be officially and visibly part of the New Order sect. Fellay's First Assistant Niklaus Pfluger in 2012 stated: "If we do not accept the magisterial authority of Vatican II, we are not Catholics." Officially, then, it seems that Fellay's Neo-SSPX has accepted the Modernist Vatican II Council, the poisoned fruit that has led in Newchurch to an abandonment of the Catholic Mass, doctrine, and morality. It was against the poisoned fruit that the founder of the original SSPX, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, railed.
Fr. Chazal reports that Fellay is still engaged in a plan of "reconciliation" with the New Order sect, under the pretense of dealing only with what is good in the Novus Ordo structure, while infected with all kinds of heresies and evils. Surprisingly, some Protestants have seen the truth before Fellay. They maintain: "I am not converting to Catholicism, for your pope is a heretic and a Marxist!"
Good Catholics, Fr. Chazal says that Fellay is liberalist and can't help returning to court the New Order sect and its Newpope. In fact, at Fellay's premier seminary in Econe, Switzerland, the Modernist New "Code of Canon Law," filled with all its Modernist inclusions, is now being taught. Can the fall of Fellay's already untraditional Neo-SSPX to the New Order sect be far off? There are only a short time, it seems, to get off Fellay's Titanic before it sinks.
Francis-Bergoglio has admitted in an interview on July 10, 2014, with La Repubblica, Rome's daily newspaper, that "about 2 per cent" of his Newchurch clergy are paedophiles, committing sex crimes against children. This would represent about 8,000 presbyters out of a global number of about 414,000. Note that this is the number that Bergoglio will admit to. Others make it far larger.
Bergoglio also admits that "among the 2 per cent who are paedophiles" are numbered Newbishops and Newcardinals. Bergoglio also admitted that a much larger numbers know who the paedophiles are, but keep quiet. Bergoglio's spokesman, Federico Lombardi, quickly denied the fact that there were Newcardinals who are paedophiles. That cut too close to home!
Good Catholics, what is most disgusting of all is that Bergoglio continues to downplay Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, which has been proven by governments around the world to number into many tens of thousands of child victims, perhaps hundreds of thousands. Bergoglio, however, claims -- on no stated basis -- "the problem certainly exists, but it is not on a large scale." Bergoglio must be deaf, dumb, and blind to deny what is now obvious to the world. It proves that he is no different from his predecessors, but is just as "soft on paedophilia" within his clergy as they were.
The Anglican sect is now using techniques to introduce bishopesses that is reminiscent of how the Modernists after the Vatican II Council (1962-1965) rammed through the most extreme changes to the Catholic Church to turn it into the Newchurch of the New Order. An invalid Novus Ordo Protestantized service in the vulgar tongues, a New Ordinal that no longer validly ordains priests, but merely installs presbyters (ministers), receiving the invalid Novus Ordo cookie in the hand, replacement of the Sacrament of Penance in favor of a non-sacramental Protestant "Rite of Reconciliation," and many other monstrosities were rammed through illegally, simply because the Modernists wanted it so.
The Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury, Justin Welby, has declared that even if the General Synod again votes down the proposal to "ordain" bishopesses, he will find a way to override the Synod. Welby, a flaming Modernist, hates the Synod because it is traditionalist. He calls those who object to bishopesses as "the old and the fanatical, conservative evangelicals who believe the Bible." Welby threatens to dissolve the Synod because it will not bend to his personal will. To the Modernists, belief in the Bible and Christ's teachings are "fanatical." Yet these same Modernists claim their authority from the very sources that they reject. In other words, like Newchurch, Anglicans are barely Christian any more. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Guardian.]
The hypocrisy of this position is beyond belief. These Modernists are always talking about peace, about charity, about respecting others, and yet when they are confronted with following their own Synod in Christian teaching and practice, the lovey-dovey Modernists declare a hateful war against their own disrespected colleagues. In so doing, they have caused a schism in the Anglican sect, with many traditionalists leaving to join independent traditionalist bishops. They don't care. Good riddance to traditionalists is the Modernists' attitude.
Good Catholics, as the Anglican sect goes, so eventually goes the Newchurch of the New Order. Newchurch's "New Mess" and "New Ordinal" are essentially Protestant Anglican, as is the push for priestesses in Newchurch. In this crisis there is no talk of Christian doctrine and practice, only who can outvote whom. "Doctrine" in Newchurch, as in the Anglican sect, is made up now on a daily basis. Forget the Bible, forget Tradition, forget Christ Himself!
Francis-Bergoglio has reserved the first Newpapal "High Five" not for a Catholic, but for a Protestant -- and a weird Protestant at that, a "Charismatic", in fact, a heretical minister: televangelist Kenneth Copeland. Bergoglio had already schmoozed with Joel Osteen, a pretty-boy televangelist, who has no religious training, but preaches the phony "prosperity gospel." The Charismatics are the ones that babble "in tongues" and swing and sway to pray. For further information, click on FAQ10: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Beliefs? in the section "Charismatic Movement."
Bergoglio gave three hours to Copeland and other wealthy Charismatic Protestant minister "celebrities" on June 24, 2014. (The Neo-SSPX's Bernie Fellay must be quite envious of that!) Copeland specifically asked for a High Five, while the photographers were around. Bergoglio scandalously complied, raised his arm and the two men smacked hands.
Good Catholics, if Bergoglio acted like a Catholic pope, instead of schmoozing and high-fiving these heretical Charismatics, would have warned against these types, who pander not only a version of the Protestant heresy but also market Christ as if he were Viagra.
Having taken a year and a half to begin to addressing the muck-up at his Vatican Bank, Francis-Bergoglio finally got around to a P.R. even on the Newchurch Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. It was all talk and no action.
Six victims -- out of tens of thousands -- were handpicked for the staged event, a "forgiveness" Mess (invalid, of course) on July 7, 2014. According to the press, Bergoglio "went further than any of his predecessors by vowing to hold bishops accountable for their handling of paedophile priests." He said not a word about holding their leaders, the Newpopes, responsible. Nor did his speech on "accountability" include a clear statement that Newbishops and Newcardinals involved in sex crimes against children would be fired.
Bergoglio's words are bad enough, but his actions have fallen far shorter. One paedophile Newbishop, Jozef Wesolowski, the Newpapal Nuncio to the Dominican Republic, Bergoglio has kept safe within the walls of Vatican City and has refused to expedite for trial in either the Dominican Republic or in his native Poland. Wesolowski's case is being slowly processed through Newchurch tribunals.
The Survivors Network of Those Abused by Pr[esbyters] quickly pulled the veil off Bergoglio's P.R. event: "He hasn't done it [held Newbishops accountable] yet, not in Rome, nor in Buenos Aires. Saying and doing are different things. The first is easy, the second is hard." One of the six victims at Bergoglio's Mess told Bergoglio directly that "a cover-up is still happening, and you have the power to make these changes." She quoted Bergoglio as confirming his do-nothing policy: "It is difficult to make these changes." Bergoglio himself has come under criticism for how he handled the case of child victims in Buenos Aires, where he was Newarchbishop 1998-2013. A spokesman for German victims dismissed Bergoglio's event as "nothing more than a P.R. event." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
Good Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio is just as much a fraud as his paedophile-supporting predecessors. He seems more interested in banks than in children. But the victims and the world have now gotten the message: Begoglio is all talk and no action. Just like Benedict-Ratzinger. Just like JPII-Wojtyla. Just like the Newchurch of the New Order.
We know that Newchurch no longer has a Sacrament of Penance (Confession). It was replaced in 1974 with an invalid "Rite of Reconciliation." Nevertheless, in the United States clergy of all sects are supposed to have an absolute and inviolable right of privacy with penitents. The Newchurch diocese of Baton Rouge claims that this ruling violates the First Amendment of the U.S. Constitution.
Shortly after the Anglican sect voted to make its clergy reveal to police the commission of crimes made in confession, the Louisiana Supreme Court on July 7, 2014, ordered a presbyter to testify about confessions by a girl who purportedly revealed that she had been touched and kissed by another Newparish parishioner.
One child-victims rights group made a very pertinent point in commenting on the ruling: "This is what happens when Catholic officials conceal child sex crimes for decades -- they lose credibility among judges." Actions have consequences, particularly when they have cumulated into Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Times-Picayune.]
The vaunted "Francis Effect," a P.R. blitz that portrays Francis-Bergoglio as one who is blunting or wiping away anything traditionally Catholic, doesn't seem to be working in the financial area. The news comes after the Vatican Bank said that its profit fell by a precipitous 97 per cent during the first year of Bergoglio's regime. The Vatican City State itself ran up a deficit of 33,000,000 U.S. dollars.
As do secular heads of state, Bergoglio is appearing to address the problems by appointing different faces. The same ploy has been used by U.S. President Barack Obama without success. His approval ratings are now down into the 30s. Bergoglio is playing the same musical chairs, on July 9, 2014, replacing the current governing board of the Vatican Bank with a Newcardinal, George Pell, who has been implicated in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust.
At the same time Newvatican announced that it would be revamping its "media operations" to serve more effectively in getting across the Modernist New Order message.
Good Catholics, is Bergoglio supposed to be a pope or a secular CEO? He has talked almost nothing about bedrock Catholic doctrine. Is he running a church or a self-focused P.R. operation? It seems that the Lord, the Blessed Virgin, the Saints, and Catholic doctrine have pretty much disappeared from the Bergoglio agenda.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Because July 7, 2014, is the seventh anniversary of the publication of Benedict-Ratzinger's Motu Proprio Summorum pontificum, which purported to make the "Latin Mass" more available, there is a great deal of extravagant nonsense being published on the internet by "Motu" groups.
First of all, let us get this clear: the "Motu/aka Extraordinary" Mess of 1962 is not the Traditional Latin Mass. It is the Half New Order Vatican II Mess, re-engineered in 1956, 1960, and 1962 from the Traditional Latin Mass by the same Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini who fabricated the invalid Protestantized "New" Mess of 1969, which Ratzinger at the same time declared to be the "Ordinary" Mess of Newchurch.
I watch the numbers on 1962 Masses extremely carefully. In fact, I check them daily and chart changes and trends constantly. I have a network of connections overseas and in the Western Hemisphere, in both Americas. These connections show that Summorum pontificum and its "Extraordinary" Mess has been a hoax, a bust, a failure.
The entire claim of Summorum pontificum is that every Newchurch presbyter (remember: these have never been ordained, only installed like Protestant ministers) has a general right to celebrate "1962 Mess" in Latin and that Newparish presbyters have a right to offer it in their own Newparishes without needing any permission from their respective Newbishops. So, what has been the result of all of this?
At the beginning, as could be anticipated with any new programme, there was a "hula-hoop" effect. There was an increase in "Motu" Messes in the USA for the first eleven months after July 7, 2007, plus a small increase in some countries, such as Germany, Brazil and Italy. However, the "Motu" had virtually no effect at all on such important countries as France, and there was almost no effect in most of the world, including Africa and Asia and most of Latin America. Nearly half of all Newchurchers live in Latin America, so that's rather important. Mexico is one of the most populous Newchurch countries. The entire country has every-Sunday "Motu" Masses in only three Newdioceses, and these do not even include Mexico City!
Then, for about four years after June 2008, the increase ground to a halt. There was almost nothing to report from 2008 to 2012. Since then, new provisions for the "Motu" Mass in the USA have been balanced by cancellations by the Newbishops there. "Motu" Messes are being cancelled right and left: Texas, New Mexico, New York, and elsewhere. Now, seven years after the "Motu," there is not even one "Motu" Mess on any basis whatsoever in many once-Catholic countries.
The technique by which the Newchurch bishops have suppressed the "Motu" Mess is intimidation. Any presbyter who dares to offer this Mass without permission from his Newbishop finds himself sent to a gulag. This is exactly what the TRADITIO Network predicted would happen. Just ask the presbyter who was expelled from New York's City's only "Motu" Newparish, which is being closed down.
In summary, Newchurch allows "Motu" Masses as a hoax mainly to lure away supporters of existing Neo-SSPX sites and independent traditional Catholic sites, many of which offer not the Protestantized "1962 Mess," but the Traditional Latin Mass. Summorum Pontificum is a dead letter. Since the election of Francis-Bergoglio, what little growth there was (and it wasn't much) has stopped. Cancellations of "1962 Masses" now largely equal new provisions, for a net rate of about zero change. Zero: that is the legacy of Benedict-Ratzinger. And the legacy of Francis-Bergoglio will be to reverse that.
Newchurch has announced a full funeral Mess for the only presbyter ever to kill a nun. The nun had criticized the presbyter for taking it upon himself to shorten the Good Friday service, and he killed her in retribution. The irony is that in 1980, when the murder took place, the Good Friday service had already been Protestantized and gutted from the traditional form for over 25 years, when the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini replaced the traditional rites of Holy Week with a Protestantized substitute.
The presbyter, Gerald Robinson, stabbed and strangled the nun, Margaret Pahl, in a hospital chapel and was convicted of the crime in 2006. He was serving a sentence of 15 years to life in prison at the time of his death on July 4, 2014. Traditionally, a public funeral would be denied to such a "public and manifest sinner" under traditional (1917) Canon 1240.6. However, like so many criminal clergy in Newchurch, presbyter Robinson was "in good standing," so he gets a full-blown Novus Ordo funeral in Toledo, Ohio. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
Good Catholics, the traditional practice of the Church in denying ecclesiastical burial to public criminals has, of course, been rejected by the New Order sect. Thus, criminals now receive the "honors" of the Novus Ordo dinner table. Newchurch teaches that there are no consequences for crime in the ecclesiastical realm. As a consequence, Newchurch is now infested with every kind of felon, and the crimes just roll on with impunity in Bergoglio's New Order sect.
The Anglican General Synod in Adelaide on July 9, 2014, voted to violate the inviolable seal of the confessional. Henceforth, significant crimes confessed will be referred to the police. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Melbourne Herald Sun.]
Previously, the seal of the confessional applied to all sins confessed. Often the priest might encourage the penitent to turn himself in to police, but that was up to the penitent. These mad Anglicans are "aiming to improve the safety of the community." In fact, people will just stop confessing anything that could be treated as a crime.
Good Catholics, as the Anglican Protestants go, so goes the Newchurch of the New Order. So, Newchurchers should anticipate violated confessions in their future. Actually, Newchurchers haven't had the Sacrament of Confession since 1974, when it was changed to an invalid "Rite of Reconciliation" after the Modernist Vatican II Council.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
It has now come out that Benedict-Ratzinger made a final offer to the Neo-SSPXers about two days after he had announced his coming abdication on February 28, 2013. He offered them, yet again, the poisonous "personal prelature" structure of Opus Dei with no doctrinal accord, and then he used his impending abdication to exert pressure on them to accept it. The message was clear: accept this final offer while you still have the chance, for I'll soon be gone, and then you never know who the next pope might be. The deal, if agreed to, was to have come into effect on the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter, February 22, 2013. Bernie Fellay, the Neo-SSPX Superior-Dicatator did not accept, supposedly because he feared a massive rebellion in his Society. For once he was right: there would indeed have been a massive rebellion at that time, and rightly so.
Newrome has repeatedly tried to foist off on the Society a "personal prelature" structure, which would require "the prior consent" of each local Newbishop to operate. The entire value of the SSPX has been that it does not need any consent from the local New Order sect bishop to open an apostolate in the territory of his Newdiocese. That was the entire point of having the SSPX in the first place. No Society priest in his right mind would give that up. It would mean that his entire vocation was a complete waste of time.
Newchurch destroyed the Traditional Anglican Communion and reduced it to rubble when its leaders tried to make a deal with Newrome and were completely burned. NewChurch put the incoming traditionalist Anglicans under neo-con NewChurch Anglicans in the new Ordinariates. As a result of the negotiations with Newrome, most of the TAC priests were rejected. Some have ended up in two splinter groups; others stayed in a much reduced TAC; others went to the Ordinariates, often accepted only as laymen. The result is that the original TACers, few to begin with, are now fragmented into four groups, when they had one before. This is the future of a sold-out Fellayite Neo-SSPX.
Pseudo-traditionalists who have accepted the "Motu/aka Extraordinary" Mess Hoax face a similar outcome. Take the case of the Institute of the Good Shepherd. Newrome at first granted them the exclusive use of the Half New Order Vatican II Mess of 1962+, never the Traditional Latin Mass. But once the Shepherds were safely in, Newrome cancelled the word "exclusive" from their statutes, pulling the rug from right under their feet! They now have to use the invalid "Ordinary Rite" ("New Mess").
Fellay is determined to sacrifice Archbishop Lefebvre's Society for purple socks and a lovely Bertone-like villa somewhere. He's now maneuvering to find some way of throwing the Society to the Newchurch lion, thereby joining the gutted Traditional Anglican Communion, the Institute of the Good Shepherd, and the like pseudo-traditionalist sellouts.
Those in control in Newrome are anti-traditionalist Newchurchers. They don't believe in Christ, and they don't even believe in God. They believe in gold, not God, which is why they are closing churches everywhere, collecting administration fees for the sales, and retiring to tropical paradises on earth, the only paradises they believe exist. They are passionately attached to an empire of real estate and money, not to the Church founded by Christ.
The safest thing to do is to avoid Newchurch until the conversion of their successors becomes possible by the grace of God. Bishop Tissier de Mallerais, of the Neo-SSPX, said rightly some time ago that it will take at least thirty years even to approach the successors of the NewChurch leaders. Note the qualifier of "at least." It might well take a hundred. Negotiating with the current crop of Liberalist/Modernists in Newrome is, by the examples of recent history ... suicidal.
Interfax reported a May 2014 survey showing that large numbers of Russian Orthodox, who fought hard for their schismatic, but valid, apostolic Faith under the Communist persecutions, have abandoned their Faith since the end of those persecutions in the 1990s. Although more than two in three Russians call themselves Orthodox, attendance at Divine Liturgy is only slightly better than among Newchurchers, 13 per cent. 41 per cent never pray. 59 per cent have never read the New Testament. The vast majority don't receive Communion and do not fast on fast days.
These statistics confirm a pattern that has been found in the Catholic Church. When the Church lived through the Roman persecutions of the first three centuries after its founding, the Catholic Faith was strong. 14,000,000 martyrs stood up for Christ, and Mass was celebrated in secret wherever possible: in the catacombs, in homes, in the desert.
After the Roman emperor Constantine's Edict of Toleration in 313, when the Church was able to come out of the catacombs, an unanticipated effect occurred: Catholics began to lose their Faith, for which they had fought so hard before. A pope in the following century castigated post-persecution Catholics for being no better than the pagans around them.
We see the same phenomenon occurring among Catholics in the post Vatican II era. Before Vatican II Catholics stood up for their Faith, and were sometimes persecuted for it. Since Vatican II the Newchurchers have completely sold out. They have adopted the Protestant (and worse) ways that they see about them. They no longer have a valid Mass, but an invalid "New Mess" based on Protestant models. They no longer have a valid priesthood, but an invalid presbyterate, for which a Protestantized Ordinal is used. They no longer have, for the most part, valid sacraments, except perhaps for Baptism and Matrimony, but now even these are veering toward invalidity.
But what about "traditional" Catholics? In the late 1960s, many courageous traditional Catholics stood up against the replacement of the Catholic Church by the Newchurch of the New Order. It is from this period that we hear of the foundation of the Traditional Catholic Movement by Fr. Gommar DePauw, the foundation of the original Society of St. Pius X by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, and the traditional apologetic work of P.H. Omlor (Questioning the Validity of the New, All-English Mass), among others.
But with the 1984 and 1988 "indults," under which the Half New Order Mess of 1962 might be celebrated in Novus Ordo temples under strict controls by the local Newchurch bishop, more traditional Catholicss found it easier to sell out to the evils of the false New Order sect, as long as they could keep a little Latin. They no longer stood up courageously for the real Mass celebrated by a real priest. Thus, they became pseudo-traditionalists. You see them in so-called "Latin Masses" (but not Traditional Latin Masses) and in the Fraternity of St. Peter and similar pseudo-traditionalist organizations.
Finally, Benedict-Ratzinger played the Great "Motu/aka Extrordinary" Mess Hoax. He told wavering traditionalists that if they accepted the invalid "New Mess" as the "Ordinary Mess" of Newchurch, they could have a few more Half New Order Messes, which he called "Extraordinary." This concept is totally unCatholic and had never been used in the 2,000 history of the Church. Yet, the wavering traditionalists lost their courage to stand up for the Catholic Faith and capitulated to the New Order sect and its pseudo-traditionalist Mess. Bernie Fellay, the Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX, almost sold out his entire organization to the New Order under this hoax.
It is estimated that about half of once-traditional Catholics have sold out to the unCatholic New Order sect under one of these hoaxes. Half, however, remain faithful to the true Catholic Faith, assisting at the true Mass in churches, chapels, oratories, even homes and public buildings. They courageously refuse to sell out to the New Order sect, no matter what hoaxes it perpetrates. They see the New Order sect for what it is, an evil unCatholic institution. A poisoned cake frosted with a little pseudo-Latin deceit.
75 French presbyters have publicly admitted that they have already "married" divorced and homosexuals. This activity is being ramped up in preparation for Francis-Bergoglio's Synod on the Family in October 2014. The plan is that if such illegal and invalid "marriages" become the unofficial norm, Newchurch will be forced to accept them.
This ploy already worked once. In the Instruction Memoriale Domini of May 29, 1969, Paul VI-Montini confirmed that Novus Ordo "communion" was to be received on the tongue. However, Montini capitulated in allowing that in those countries where "communion in the hand" was the unofficial norm, it could be continued. In other words, those presbyters who were acting sacrilegiously and following the heretical Protestant usage were to be rewarded by being allowed to continue their sacrilege.
Montini could have told these presbyters: Stop your sacrilege. But he didn't. He said: As long as you've gone this far, you may as well continue. I yield. As a result, Newchurch no longer has "communion." It has a mere cookie, invalidated with the New Mess of 1969. Newchurch no longer has a priesthood. That was eliminated with its New Ordinal of 1968, which is based on the model for installing a Protestant minister. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Katholisches Magazin.]
Good Catholics, the same method is being used to sneak in the anti-Christian practice of marrying divorced and homosexuals as a fait accompli. It worked in the unCatholic Newchurch before. There is no reason that it won't work there again. Of course, such "marriages" are null and void. There is no grace in such invalid non-sacraments, only perdition for those involved in the hoax.
Francis-Bergoglio's personal religion is so confused, it is getting harder and harder to find anything rational in what he says. He has in the past said that Christians are Communists and vice versa, because Christianity and Communism are based on the same principles. Now, on June 16, 2014, he said that inside every Christian is a Jew. If Bergoglio lived in Catholic times, the Church would have excommunicated him -- or worse -- for equating Christianity with the atheism of Communism and the infidelity of Judaism. What's going to be his next statement: All Christians are Mohammedans?!
Bergoglio's statement goes far beyond even that of the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla, who in 1986 called the unfaithful Jews "elder brothers." Also taking a swipe at the likes of traditional bishop Richard Williamson, Bergoglio claimed that "holocaust denial is madness." In fact, Williamson didn't even deny the "holocaust" as such, but simply questioned the inflated number of victims being quoted, which has more than doubled in propaganda since the end of World War II. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Religious News Service.]
Good Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio has told us that some of his best friends are Marists, that he can't judge sodomites, that Christians are Communists, and now that Christians are Jews. Newchurch is becoming crazier and crazier, yet cowardly Newchurchers still sit in the pews and fork over their money for more of this nonsense. We're far from the courage of our Catholic forebears who stood up against heresy, immorality, and false worship -- even if they emanated from men who called themselves popes.
Baptisms traditionally include a renunciation of Satan and an exorcism and a prayer of exorcism to aid in that goal. But as C.S. Lewis so brilliantly wrote in the Screwtape Letters, the Devil prefers to perpetrate his "malice and snares" from hiding. The Anglican Church announced on June 20, 2014, that it is falling right into the Devil's hands by expunging mention of the Devil from its Baptismal rite. A "simplified" Baptism, which will become the norm, has been test marketed by Anglican clergy. The clergy discovered that baptizands or godparents don't like to admit that they are sinners or acknowledge Original Sin.
Undoubtedly, a similar rite will be introduced into the Newchurch of the New Order. We have seen that historically what the Anglican sect does, the New Order sect is quick to follow. The "New Mess," or what Benedict-Ratzinger called the "Ordinary Mess" of Newchurch, is mostly culled from the Anglican rite. The "New Ordinal," under which Newchurch has invalidly installed its presbyters since 1969 as essentially Protestant ministers, is also heavily borrowed from the Anglicans. (Newchurch has not ordained priests or consecrated bishops since 1969.)
Omission of Satan isn't the only modification in the "improved" baptismal rite, which also deletes the godparents' obligation to ensure that they child keeps God's Commandments and learns his Christian faith. The New Baptism has no sense of sin or salvation. Sin is now a "sickness," for which the individual is not responsible, but needs psychiatric therapy. The New Baptism is an initiation rite into the Anglican country club, just as Newchurch's New Baptism is an initiation into the New Order fraternity. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by The Guardian.]
Good Catholics, we have often wondered what the purpose of having Newchurch is. If there is no true worship, true doctrine, or true morality, no true Mass, and no true Sacraments, what's the point? The Newchurchers ought to hold on to their money and spending their Sunday mornings (or Saturday evenings) on the golf course!
When presbyter Jim Murphy was arrested on May 17, 2014, for trespassing and disorderly conduct at a military facility in Wisconsin, even the police had doubts about him. "Are you really a clergy member, or is this just a costume?" Good question!
Murphy has been arrested some ten times on similar charges, protesting various political issues. It seems that being a presbyter in Newchurch means being a political activist, not one who offers the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in reparation for the sins of the people.
What "Murph," as the presbyter is known, is doing is called by the New Order sect "social-justice work." This is what replaces Catholic worship and devotion to Almighty God, and veneration of the Blessed Virgin and the Saints. Murph is not to be found at the altar -- excuse us, Novus Ordo dinner table -- but in the political picket line.
Murphy didn't learn the false New Order religion from his parents. They are described as "fervent Catholics, not particularly political." Murphy's downfall was his involvement, during Novus Ordo seminary, in the Catholic [Sic] Worker Movement, founded by the activist Dorothy Day, who had connections with the Communist Movement. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Wisconsin State Journal.]
Good Catholics, this is what presbyters has become in Newchurch. They are not ordained as priests, nor do they function as priests. Priests by definition offer sacrifice, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Presbyters are secular social workers, dressed like clergy in order deceptively to enshroud secular politics in the trappings of "religion."
Over the last fifty years, we have learned how cagey the Modernists are in imposing their unCatholic "doctrines." Teachings are no longer contained in official documents, carefully formulated. They are conveyed in off-the-cuff "homilies," hints, and suggestions. All Francis-Bergoglio had to say about sodomy is "Who am I to judge?," and sodomy became acceptable in Newchurch. There was no document to that effect, but almost without exception Newchurchers embraced the new pro-homosexual "doctrine," and the Modernists controlling Newparishes swung into action to promote the new "doctrine."
On June 26, 2014, Newvatican proclaimed: "The episcopal conferences amply demonstrate that they are trying to find a balance between the Church's teaching on the family and a respectful, non-judgmental attitude toward people living in such [homosexual] unions. Peeling away the verbiage, Newvatican is now saying that One of the Four Sins that Cry out to Heaven for Retribution is now not to be judged. Substitute "murder" for "sodomy," and you will see how unCatholic and unChristian Newvatican's position is. It is a far cry from the Biblical standard: "They who do such things, are worthy of death: and not only they that do them, but they also that consent to them that do them" (Romans 1:32/DRV). [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
Newparishioners from St. Clement's Newparish in Chicago, Illinois, were swift to put into practice Bergoglio's new pro-"gay" doctrine. They marched in the June 29, 2014, "Gay Pride" Parade shoulder to shoulder with the pro-homosexual Dignity Chicago, an Newchurch advocacy group for "gay," lesbian and transgendered Newchurchers. The Newparishioners marched behind the Dignity banner wearing T-shirts that advertised their Newchurch affiliation. Far from condemning this support of anti-Christian immorality, the associate pastor said: "Individual parishioners are free to do what they want." One of the Newparishioners stated more bluntly: "We don't want to be dictated to anymore." Not by the Church, not by God.
Good Catholics, there you have it: Newchurch has sunk into complete lawlessness: in morality, in doctrine, and in worship. Newchurch is not Christian, even when it wraps itself in a little bit of Half Novus Ordo Vatican II "Motu/aka Extraordinary" Latin. True Catholics must shun the New Order sect, not become ensnared in its anti-Catholic tentacles.
On June 30, 2014, the Feastday of Sts. Peter & Paul, Francis-Bergoglio shocked the world by proclaiming that the ideas of Christianity and Communism are the same. According to Bergoglio, Communism's founding thinker Karl Marx, "did not invent anything," but took the ideas of Communism that he developed in his Communist Manifesto (1848) from Christianity. Karl Marx was an atheist.
Bergoglio went on to tell Italy's national newspaper Il Messaggero that his own world view is "not dissimilar" to Communist ideology. Communists are Christians, and Christians are Communists. Since his election as Newpope in March 2013, several international media have called Bergoglio a "Marxist." In reply, Bergoglio has said that some of his best friends are Marxists and that he would rather associate with Marxists than "doctrinaire" Catholics (read: traditionalists). "In my life I have met a lot of Marxists who are good people." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Agence France-Presse.]
Such statements must be making Pope Pius XII and Pope John XXIII turn over in their graves. Pope Pius XII issued the Decree against Communism in 1949, which excommunicates all Catholics collaborating with Communists. Pope John XXIII (whom Newchurchers consider a Novus Ordo "saint") confirmed the decree in 1962.
Good Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio is a product of the Newjesuits, many of whom in Latin American went Communist at the time of the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965), even taking up guns to kill non-Marxist heads of state. Well-known traditional Catholic author Malachi Martin, who was a former Jesuit, wrote in his book, The Jesuits (1988), about how the Modernists and Communists took over the Jesuit order and turned it into a Communist-bent Newjesuit order. Bergoglio was in deep in that Newjesuit order. It is not surprising that he sounds far more like a Communist sympathizer than anything approaching a Catholic.
The church is hushed. The sacristy bell rings to alert the congregation to the entrance of the priest and servers, who genuflect at the foot of the altar to the Most Blessed Sacrament, after which the priest proclaims at the outset the divine nature of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass that is beginning by invoking the Triune God: "In nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spiritus Sancti." That is how the True Mass, the Traditional Latin Mass, begins -- with grace, reverence, and divinity, in the Sacred Language of the Roman Catholic Church.
Down the street is a church of Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order. To the latest catchy pop tune, the presbyter (Newchurch has not ordained priests since 1968, merely installed them like Protestant ministers) swaggers in wearing his light-weight albo-chasuble, strides up to the Novus Ordo table, and invokes not God, but man: "Good morning," he says. A scattering of the bleary-eyed congregation responds in knee-jerk fashion, "Good morning." That is how the invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Order Mess begins.
It has been fifty years since the Newchurch of the New Order replaced the Catholic Church in its buildings and offices as the "establishment" Church (a term formerly used of the Protestant Anglican Church). But now Manila's Newarchbishop Luis Tagle wants his presbyters to stop starting Mess with "Good morning." He declared on June 26, 2014, that he does not see the need for saying "good morning" and similar greetings when God's presence in the "eucharist" [sic] suffices. Of course, we traditional Catholics know that that God is most certainly not present in the Novus Ordo cookie. Tagle admits another problem: sometimes the congregation doesn't respond to the "Good morning" greeting, so the presbyter has to repeat it. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Manila Bulletin.]
Good Catholics, can anything be sillier than the New Mess, which Benedict-Ratzinger declared in 2007 to be the "Ordinary Rite" of Newchurch? There is little of God in it. It is a construct of man (mostly the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini and his Committee of Six Protestant Ministers) and is directed toward man, not God. It is not the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, but an invalid Protestantized service, falling short even of a Protestant High Anglican service. And do not be fooled: the "Motu/aka Extraordinary" Half New Order Vatican II Mess of 1962 is no better. It may look a bit more traditional, but it was modernized by the same Freemason presbyter Bugnini and is invalidly "performed" by the same invalid presbyters who "perform" the Protestantized "Ordinary Rite" New Mess.
