Forget all the false propaganda that you hear in a constant stream coming from Newvatican. Objective information, such as that emanating from the highly-respected Pew Research Center, makes it clear that Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch is sinking into the mire of grave financial difficulties. For example, its major Franciscan Order is on the verge of bankruptcy. The Newvatican Bank is under investigation by the European Union for corruption. Now Newchurch has resorted to robbing the dead.
Small businesses, most of them family run for decades, are now being forced to compete with giant Newchurch "religious corporations" for funeral services and gravestones, as in the Newarchdiocese of Newark, New Jersey, headed by the notorious John Myers. Myers is embroiled in a multi-million-dollar scam of his sheeple for building a palatial retirement spa for himself. No censure has emanated from the hypocritical Francis-Bergoglio, who was quick to fire a Limberger Newbishop for building a Newdiocesan center to be used by many groups in the Newdiocese, not for himself personally. (That bishop bishop's problem was not profligacy, but traditionalism, which Bergolio has made it clear that he hates.)
Newarchbishop Myers's attempt to quash traditional small family funeral businesses has so enraged the New Jersey state legislature that a bill is being heard making it illegal for "religious institutions," like the Newchurch of the New Order, to sell gravestones or operate funeral homes, because they already have a monopoly on "Catholic" cemeteries. (Have you priced the cost of a grave or mausoleum lately?) Myers has already stolen 25 per cent of the market in headstones and wants more. The sly Myers has directed his Newchurch sheeple to oppose the legislation in the name of "religious freedom." But what about the religious freedom of the dead and the religious freedom of small family funeral businesses? Maybe Myers just wants to plunk another cool million into his Bergoglio-approved retirement palace.
Even the New Jersey State Funeral Directors Association has charged that Myers is running a "nonprofit corporation" like a for-profit business. Myers started muscling in on family funeral businesses 18 months ago, using Newchurch's tax-exempt status as an unfair economic advantage. And most of the family funeral businesses are run by Newchurchers in Myers "religious corporation," aka the New Order sect. At the least these funeral directors should leave the unCatholic Newchurch and join an independent traditional Catholic congregation that at least won't bite the hand that feeds it! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the New York Times.]
Good Catholics, Newarchbishop Myers is shafting his Newchurchers in the same way that the Newarchbishop of Los Angeles, California, Roger "Rogue" Mahony, attempted in California and Arizona, until his despicable plan was exposed in a lengthy, full-color 1998 U.S. News and World Report investigative report for conducting a $100,000,000 kickback scheme involving the extortion of money from mortuaries and his own bereaved Newchurch families in their time of grief. Newchurch and its leaders are just the pits -- two metres deep!
The word has gone out: Newbishops at the final "Extraordinary Synod" meeting in October 2015 must follow Francis-Bergoglio's anti-Catholic line to give the Novus Ordo Kookie and Kool-Aid to the divorced and remarried and to accept and welcome homosexuals. According to a December 23, 2014, communique included with a new questionnaire for the 2015 Synod, Bergoglio has ordered that Newchruch bishops shall be guided not only by Christ's doctrine but by every word that comes out of the mouth of Bergoglio the Blasphemous.
The problem at the first "Extrordinary Synod on the Family" held October 2014 was that a number even of the Modernist Newbishops rejected Bergoglio's false teachings. Bergoglio hypocritically claimed that he wanted and "open and transparent" Synod, but when his Newbishops voted against his anti-Catholic moral teachings, he ordered his rejected doctrines rejected put back into the final document, he expelled some Newbishops from the Synod, and in their place he appointed yes-men to vote his way in the concluding session in October 2015.
A new "questionnaire" has been sent by Bergoglio to Newbishops' conference around the world to get recommendations for changing Christ's doctrine. And this time Bergoglio is making sure that the results are fudged to what he wants! Bergoglio has without any doubt now converted his Modernist New Order sect into an openly Protestant sect, which is empowered to change Christ's Biblical doctrines by a "vote of the people."
Bergoglio doesn't hold with Catholic doctrine that homosexual acts are among the greatest sins and that those who, contrary to Christ's clear teaching, divorce and remarry are outside the Church and, as purposefully living in sin, cannot receive the Sacraments. (Of course, Bergoglio's New Order sect abandoned the true Sacraments in 1968 when it ceased ordaining priests and instead installed Protestant-style ministers under the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini's New Ordinal of 1968.)
Bergoglio now wants to "unexcommunicate" the divorced/remarried and welcome them to the Novus Ordo Kookie and Kool-Aid. Bergoglio has ordered his Newbishops not to turn in answers to his questionnaire that are "purely doctrinal in nature" or that ignore his new anti-Catholic doctrines proposed at the first session of the "Extraordinary Synod."
Good Catholics, does Francis-Bergoglio's new doctrines on homosexuality and divorce/remarriage seem to you to follow Christ's clear teaching in Scripture? If now, how can you continue to pretend that he is running a "Catholic Church"? If you are not the hypocrite that he is, you must get out today and find the true and valid traditional Catholic Mass and Sacraments wherever you can find them. Not to do so, given all the information that you have, will be death to your soul and a life deprived of grace.
On the Vigil of one of the greatest feasts of the Catholic Church, December 24, 2014, the Vigil of the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ, what does Francis-Bergoglio, the "Marxist" Newpope, choose to publish in his L'Osservatore Romano? A call for repentance to prepare for the Incarnation? A call for Jews and Gentiles to convert to the Messias? Of course not! Bergoglio took the occasion to hawk a secular theme, the disputed and even ridiculed pseudo-science of "global warming."
Bergoglio sent his Newapostolic Nuncio to the United Nations's Lima Conference to speak not of Christ, but of "the critical problem of global warming." Apparently, Begoglio is behind the times even from the secular Liberalist line. Because the "global warming" theory has already fallen in scientific circles, one is supposed to recover by calling it "climate change." Oops!
Newnuncio Newarchbishop James Green sang the Liberalist line, which wants to tie unproven science to hawk secular political programmes, which are crushing the man in the street (whom Bergoglio is supposed to favor) with their exorbitant costs. Bergoglio's Green himself admitted that "the greatest weight will fall on the most vulnerable, the poorest people," but he was speaking of the fabled "global warming," not the heavy tax on the poor for secular programmes that will do no good except for lining the pockets of liberalist politicians.
Good Catholics, man, including Francis-Bergoglio, is ultimately not in charge of such monumental natural forces as Earth's climate. God, their Creator is. But Bergoglio and his Modernist-Liberalist crowd want to play God. And, in doing so, having destroyed the institutional Catholic Church, they now want to destroy the Earth!
As Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch becomes more and more infected with immorality, the Italian weekly Panorama reported on December 19, 2014, a widespread new scandal, showing that under Newchurch control, the original Order of St. Francis (Friars Minor) has been turned into a cesspool, caught investing a significant amount of its money into offshore accounts involved in illegal arms sales and drug trafficking. Swiss prosecutors have seized the accounts of the Newrome-based Franciscan Order, as a result of which the Franciscan Order is facing bankruptcy.
In an effort to "spin" the truth, the Order's general treasurer has been made the scapegoat, but sources within the main Franciscan Order in Newchurch say that it is members of Bergoglio's Newchurch hierarchy, not even Franciscans, who are really responsible. That hierarchy compromised, probably deliberately, their financial oversight and control of the patrimony of the Order. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
Good Catholics, the corruption in Newchurch and in the Francis-Bergoglio Newpapacy just never seems to stop, does it? Meanwhile, Bergoglio continues as if acting in a stage play titled "Mr. Innocent the Humble," whereas it is his regime that is behind the corruption. St. Francis would be the first to spit on the Newchurch version of his Order and the Newpope that stole his name. After all, the Saint told his followers to have nothing to do with money!
It was a stunning admission, though not surprising to us TRADITIO Fathers, who had reported it all along. For all Francis-Bergoglio's after-the-fact protestations, he has now admitted in his annual Christmas address to the Newcuria on December 22, 2014, that he does in fact want to admit divorced/remarried Newchurchers to the Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid and to welcome "homosexual unions." Moreover, he has essentially declared war on "conservative" and "traditionalist" Newchurch bishops and cardinals who, he said, are "working against the pope." This is an obvious reference to those Newbishops and Newcardinals who dared to speak out against his anti-Catholic desire to change Christ's moral doctrines in his concocted "Extraordinary Synod" of October 2014, dubbed by us "Vatican III." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by CNN.]
Within the Church, there is a tough group of conservative bishops and priests [sic] and cardinals, and also very traditionalist bishops and cardinals who are practically against the pope, who are working against the pope. They don't like what he wanted to do with the synod about family, to give new possibilities to remarried and divorced people to get the communion, or to have a new look on the homosexual union.
For a Newpope that claims to be so humble, it was remarkable that, when he spoke against "conservatives" and "traditionalists," he used the third person and referred to himself as "pope." Since the Modernist Vatican II Council, Newpopes have tended to use the first person singular "I" instead of the first personal plural "We," the so-called Pluralis Majestatis, or Royal "We."
Bergoglio, the "Marxist" Newpope, who has been roundly criticized in recent months for his departures from Catholic doctrine, took the same tack as Bernie Fellay, Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX. He termed legitimate criticism of his exercise of his office the "terrorism of gossip." He completely ignored the fact that one of the traditional functions of cardinals is to advise the pope -- and to chastise him if he departs from Catholic doctrine and tradition. Bergoglio went on to say: "These people haven't got the courage to speak directly, and they speak about others behind their backs." Bergoglio must hold us TRADITIO Fathers in high regard indeed because we have been honest and open from the beginning about the doctrinal errors and the odor of heresy emanating from Newvatican and its Newpopes, as well as from Fellay's Menzingen headquarters.
Obviously, the criticism that Bergoglio has departed from the Catholic Faith and the doctrinal definition of the papacy by the dogmatic Vatican I Council is getting to him. The "terrorism of gossip" indeed! This from a man who accepted the highest office of Newchurch by his own free will. Was he really ignorant of the dictum of the Church's principal theologian, St. Thomas Aquinas, that because the pope can affect the salvation of so many, that he must be publicly rebuked when he departs from Catholic teaching, just as St. Paul publicly rebuked St. Peter, when Peter departed from Catholic teaching (Galatians 2:11/DRV)?
Good Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio is a dead man as far as Catholicism is concerned. He has let his Marxist beliefs take over his own psyche to the extent that even his own Newchurch leaders have spoken out against him. Bergoglio has indicated that very shortly he will either be dead or abdicate. Even he seems to sense the judgment of God, which the Catholic Church teaches is most harsh against popes above all men, because they can, by false teaching and immoral example, lead many souls to Hell.
The TRADITIO Network's recent report about the secret memorandum of the Neo-SSPX's Superior-Dictator Bernie Fellay was right on target. Although some of the clueless "bloggers" originally poo-pooed the TRADITIO Network's report, now they are eating crow: the TRADITIO report has now been confirmed as being exactly right. Fellay is admitting to a full-out campaign to make a deal with Newrome. Fellay, as usual, tried to keep his treachery secret, but then the TRADITIO Network blew his plan out of the water, so now he is admitting the whole thing and taking a new tac, pretending that it's really no big deal. But it is in fact a very big deal, and I suspect that the deal that Fellay is planning will drive many more priest-presbyters out of his Neo-SSPX, in addition to the one hundred who have already left.
From various sources (many French, and therefore unknown to English speakers in American, Australia, etc.), we can now report the following:
Fellay clearly wants to dance with the Devil. Francis-Bergoglio, who has announced his pending abdication, has recently banned the wearing of the traditional simar by Newprelates at "working meetings" in Newvatican. Bergoglio wants to "celebrate" Protestant Reformation Day in 2017. Can you imagine the reaction of St. Peter of Verona or St. Thomas More? Fellay, who has destroyed Archbishop Lefebvre's Society of St. Pius X as a traditional organization, wants to build a "legacy" by which he can be remembered (in infamy, as he fails to see).
In answer to the personal prelature objections, Fellay can answer that, yes, it means that the Society will be excluded from the territory of many Newdioceses, but who cares? It just means abandoning the his Neo-SSPX members who are stuck in the unwelcoming New Order dioceses. To Hell with them! Fellay is running his Neo-SSPX for the comfort of himself and his remaining priest-presbyters, not for the benefit of his members! To Hell with the laity! They can damn well move to where the Society chapels are or get lost!
Archbishop Lefebvre, on the other hand, founded his original SSPX to rescue lay traditionalists who were stranded without a real Mass to attend. No more. Fellay wants to throw his Neo-SSPX members to the Devil of the unCatholic and unChristian New Order sect. Neo-SSPX priest-presbyters and lay members need to jump ship now before they became even bigger cogs in the New Order machine that spits in the face of Our Lord Jesus Christ.
From a Soldier in the Field Years Ago
My first Christmas away from home, fighting at war in the field, I got up at 22:00 to go over early to prepare myself for the Midnight Mass of Christmas. I had much to pray for. The chaplain and his servers did a superb job of turning an open field into a beautiful place to celebrate Midnight Mass of the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ. They started by taking some pallets to construct a floor for our altar, then nailed some plywood on top of the pallets to finish the floor. For the rear walls of the altar, they nailed sheets of plywood to the floor, then lifted the plywood high into the air to create the rear walls of the altar. Blue spotlights were used to wash light across the back walls of the altar. An ambo emblazoned with a white cross was placed in front of the Gospel side of the altar. Off the altar to the left was a confessional with a long line of soldiers and some nurses. The lines were always long at the confessional, as everybody always took the opportunity, when it presented itself, to go to confession.
While soldiers started to fill in the bare spots in the field, the chaplain's assistant played traditional Catholic hymns on a portable organ. I decided to lie back on the ground. I don't know whether it was that we were so far from any big city lights to block our view or whether God was telling me in His own way that things were not that bad. Looking up into the night sky, I saw the most beautiful sight I have ever seen in my life, on the "ceiling" of our open-air church was the same scene the shepherds must have seen two thousand years before. The only thing missing was the Star of Bethlehem. The grandeur of the Milky Way in that black sky was breathtaking, with so many stars that no one could doubt the hand of the Creator. I wish everybody, every year, could feel the magic of the First Mass of Christmas, Christmas Midnight Mass. I have never missed one since.
The service that the field chaplains of World War II did in the middle of a hot war, independent traditional Catholic priests are, in the present Modernist Vatican II age, doing in the middle of the Cold War waged by the invalid Newchurch of the New Order against Catholicism, the true and valid traditional Catholic Latin Mass, the true and valid traditional Catholic Sacraments, true traditional Catholic doctrine, and true traditional Catholic morality.
Good Catholics, these true traditional Catholic priests neither want nor receive help from the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order structure. Thus, they rely upon faithful Catholic laypeople to support their Mass sites in churches, chapels, oratories, public buildings, and even homes. In gratitude, support their work this Christmas and be sure to assist at the principal Mass of Christmas, the traditional Catholic Midnight Mass, if it is made available to you. And while you approach your Mass site this night, don't forget to look up and take a long look at the stars of God's creation, the same stars that shone upon the Christ Child that night two thousand years ago. For as the Psalmist (18:2/Vulgate) tells us: Caeli enarrant gloriam Dei, et opera manuum eius annuntiat firmamentum.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
My traditional Catholic calendar has a fish on Christmas Eve, December 24, indicating abstinence from fleshmeat on that day. I cannot recall that being the case. Is my calendar correct? Is Christmas Eve, December 24, really a traditional day of abstinence from fleshmeat?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Catholics prepare their bodies as well as their souls for Great Feasts, such as that of the Nativity of Our Lord Jesus Christ. The fast and abstinence occur usually on the day before the feast, that is, the Vigil of the Feast. In the case of December 24, because celebrations in some regions were long held on the eve, John XXIII (if you accept him as a traditional pope) allowed the fast and abstinence (optionally) to be performed on December 23 instead. Yet, we TRADITIO Fathers clearly remember that we never ate fleshmeat on Christmas Eve before John XXIII.
With all the bounty that we have, is it really that difficult to abstain from fleshmeat on the Vigil of one of the greatest Feasts of Our Lord? You can feast on the feastday, December 25. That is the real traditional Catholic way, based soundly in Apostolic Tradition.
More information keeps coming in about how fast and how far Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order is sinking. On December 19, 2014, it was announced that Newchurch cannot and will not be offering the principal Mass of Christmas, their New Order Midnight Mess, in many locales. First, there is a drastic shortage of Newchurch presbyters-ministers. Second, Newchurch is undermining the doctrine of the Incarnation in favor of the heresy-tainted "Jesus is our buddy" theology.
Newchurch in England and Wales, for example, has announced that in fewer than one in four Newparishes Midnight Mass will not offer the Midnight Mess of Christmas at all. In addition to lack of presbyter-ministers and the undermining of the dogma of the Incarnation, Newchurch has been besieged with drunks and streakers! Obviously, no one these days is taking the New Order sect and its invalid Mess, at midnight or at any other time, seriously. Newchurch's celebration of the Jewish Sabbath in its Saturday afternoon "Golf" Messes also contributes to the general situation of godlessness in Newchurch.
One presbyter-minister was sober enough to admit: "We [in the Newchurch of the New Order] have turned our practice of the faith into a matter of convenience rather than a matter of commitment." That statement is a brilliant epitaph for the phony Newchurch, which certainly isn't Catholic, and is hardly even Christian at this point, headed as it is by a Marxist Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by The Tablet.]
Good Catholics, if you have a Traditional Catholic Latin Midnight Mass of Christmas, even more so if you have the Traditional Catholic Matins that precede it, you have a great blessing. Don't miss it, or you will lose it. Support your traditional priest and your traditional church, chapel, or oratory. There is plenty of time to get drunk Christmas morning if you need to.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Several people have told me that since the Modernist Vatican II Council, Newchurch advises Protestants to remain in their heretical sects and not to convert. Is this true? Any documentary references would be helpful.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
That is true. It is all part and parcel of the Vatican II heresy of "Oecumenism," which, in practice, teaches that all religions are equal and that all gods are the same, particularly among Christians. Such teaching from the Newchurch of the New Order, which arose after Vatican II and which claims to be "Catholic," in fact reverses Catholic dogma, consistently taught by the Catholic Church since the Apostolic age.
Moreover, be careful of "documents." Much of the anti-Catholic teaching and practice in Newchurch is not reduced to writing. That practice is deliberate in order that there is no "smoking gun" against Newchurch personnel. Cover your ears and instead use your eyes to see what are they doing and what the consequences are. "By their fruits you shall know them" (Matthew 7:16/DRV).
And what are the fruits of the Newchurch of the New Order? Continuing rampant immorality and crime among its Newclergy. Corruption of Catholic doctrine taught by the Catholic Church from the Apostolic age. A service that is no long a valid Mass, but something that is worse than most higher Protestant services. The loss of the Catholic priesthood (cf. Pope Leo XIII's Apostolicae Curae) and its substitution by an invalid Protestant-style presbyter-ministers. "Be not deceived: God is not mocked" (Galatians 6:7/DRV).
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Why does that obelisk stand in the front of St. Peter's Archbasilica? Has there ever been an attempt to remove the phallic symbol from Vatican property?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
First off, Egyptian obelisks are not phallic symbols. On the contrary, they are monuments to the Sun God Re, who had associations with the Jewish Messias, that is, the Christ. In a famous passage the Old Testament prophet Malachias describes the Christ as the Sun: "But unto you that fear my name, the Sun of justice shall arise, and health in his wings: and you shall go forth, and shall leap like calves of the herd" (Malachias 4:2/DRV).
The obelisk now in St. Peter's Piazza is an historical monument, a remarkable one at that because of its size and mass -- 25 metres tall and 331 metric tons. It was brought to Rome about the time of the crucifixion of Christ, by the Roman emperor Caligula in 37, and as such has been venerated by Catholics since then as a symbol of the Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Originally situated on the wall of the Circus of Nero nearby, Pope Sixtus V was determined to re-erect the obelisk in front of St. Peter's. In 1586, in a famous feat of engineering, the obelisk was moved on rollers to the piazza by the work of some 1000 men, 140 carthorses, and 47 cranes. The re-erection took place on September 14, the Feast of the Exaltation of the Cross, was watched by a large crowd.
Thus, the St. Peter's obelisk is an ancient symbol of Christ, the Messias, the prophet Malachias's Sun of Justice, drawn from the world of ancient Egypt, which like all the pre-Christian pagan world had intimations of the coming of the Christ: "And all nations shall call you blessed" (Malachias 3:12/DRV).
Didn't we TRADITIO Fathers state from the beginning that Francis-Bergoglio was a Marxist? Now he has confirmed our statement by covertly facilitating Barack Obama's recognition of the atheistic Communist regime of Cuba, together with the release of several Cuban terrorists. What does Bergoglio care about the United States or the Free World, ensconced as he is in his little half square kilometre enclave given to him by the Fascist Dictator Benito Mussolini?
It was revealed on December 17, 2014, that Bergoglio, in an effort to get the United States to recognize the atheistic Marxist regime in Cuba, had been writing Barack Obama of the U.S. and Raul Castro of Cuba in recent months, then hosted a secret meeting with the U.S. and Cuba in October 2014. Obama, who has been lambasted by U.S. Congressional leaders of both major parties for selling out the welfare of the United States to a totalitarian Communist regime with no quid pro quo, twice referred in his December 17, 2014, announcement to Bergoglio's interference -- correct that: involvement -- in the affair. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
Good Catholics, Newpopes are more involved in secular matters since the Modernist Vatican II Council than in religious matters. Their New Order religion is in a shambles, with their invalid Sunday service attendance falling into single digits, grossly immoral practices such as homosexuality being openly supported by them, and no letup being observed in their Newclergy's rape, sodomy, and sexual assault of children. No wonder Bergoglio has given up on religion and prefers to muck in secular politics!
Francis-Bergoglio abused his Novus Ordo "homily" of December 15, 2014, to stage yet another one of his attacks on traditional Catholics. Actually, his attack was more against Jesus Christ, Whose "vicar" he claims to be. Bergoglio derided the Catholic and Apostolic Eucharistic fast, which traditionally starts at midnight before Holy Mass in the morning. Fasting before important occasions is Apostolic, being mentioned numerous times in both the Old and the New Testaments. It prepares the body and the mind for the reception of a Sacrament, not only the Holy Eucharist, but other Sacraments as well, such as adult Baptism and Holy Orders. Those with medical and other problems could easily get a dispensation for good cause from their confessor.
The traditional Eucharistic fast instilled a great respect for the importance of the Sacrament. That respect started to be compromised when in 1953 Hannibal Bugnini, the chief architect of the New Order "liturgy," engineered the reduction of the fast from midnight to just three hours from food and one hour from liquids.
After Pope John XXIII had died, Paul VI-Montini wasted no time in cooperating with Bugnini in essentially abolishing the Catholic and Apostolic Eucharistic fast at the end of the third session of the Modernist Vatican II Council in 1964, so that now communicants munch the Novus Ordo cookie and swill the Novus Ordo Kool-Aid after just having gone to Denny's, ordered the Grand Slam Breakfast, and belched their way up to a now-phony communion -- just like the Protestant heretics.
The result in the unCatholic New Order sect has been a rampant disrespect for "communion." Stories are rife of Newchurchers manhandling the Novus Ordo cookie and taking it home or sticking it in a prayerbook, as well presbyters throwing extra cookies into a river and even selling cookies on the internet to Satanists. (Of course, the Newchurch of the New Order does not have a valid "communion.) [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
Good Catholics, Almighty God took just action against these Newchurch Non-Catholics. He took away from them the true Sacrament and allowed them instead to munch cookies and swill Kool-Aid in an invalid Protestantized service conducted not by priests, but by presbyter-ministers. St. Paul aptly describes the type of punishment meted out to the Newchurchers: "Wherefore, God gave them up to the desires of their heart ... Who changed the truth of God into a lie" (Romans 1:24-25/DRV).
Sony Pictures chairwoman Amy Pascal was one of the first Hollywood executives to exile traditional Catholic actor-producer-director Mel Gibson after a drunken "anti-Semitic rant" made public by a third party in 2006. Now Pascal has been hoisted by her own petard as a Hollywood hypocrite. Leaks to the media during the week of December 7, 2014, revealed an exchange of "racist" E-mails between her and mega-producer Scott Rudin, and her head is now on the chopping block in one of the biggest recent Hollywood scandals. When Gibson supposedly did his rant, he was drunk; Pascal was stone sober. Pascal's Sony headship is now about to be severed.
In 2006 the rest of Hollywood soon followed Pascal's lead, and Gibson, an Oscar-winning director, was ruined, and has remained ruined. Readers of these Daily Commentaries at the time will remember that for two years bigots conducted a campaign against Gibson, specifically because he was a traditional Catholic and was gutsy enough to produce and direct the literal Biblical depiction entitled The Passion of the Christ, his 2004 blockbuster, which remains one of the most popular films of all time.
The irony is that Gibson was respected by Jewish actors, as he treated them fairly, such as Maia Morgenstern, whom he selected to play Mary in Passion. Those who hated Gibson were not religious, but political, like Abraham Foxman, head of the so-called Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith (Sons of the Covenant), who makes his living by racist attacks on purported "anti-Semites" to raise funds for himself and his organization.
Good Catholics, Liberalist-Modernist hypocrites like Amy Pascal and "gay" Scott Rudin, who would be the first to deplore "anti-feminism" and "anti-gay" remarks, have no problem with their anti-traditional Catholic bigotry against Gibson. It is hypocrisy that is the chief characteristic of the Liberalist-Modernists -- and you may as well number the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio among that vile crowd.
No wonder Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch is so unCatholic. His right-hand guy, Newcardinal Oscar Rodriguez-Mariadiaga, on December 14, 2014, in Lisbon, Portugal, put down the worship of God and rejected the Third Commandment of God, claiming that secular charity businesses are what Newchurchers should be focused on. Such a statement directly contradicts the teaching of Jesus Christ, Who is supposed to be Mariadiaga's Lord and God. Instead, Mariadiaga is mouthing the typical Marxist line, which is completely in accord with Newpope Francis "the Marxist" Bergoglio's anti-Catholic prattlings.
Mariadiaga boiled down the unCatholic Newchurch's false doctrine to: "The ultimate question will not be, 'Did you go to Mass or not,' but 'did you feed the hungry'?" First off, what would Mariadiaga know about the Mass? Newchurch hasn't had a valid Mass since at least 1969, when it replaced the true, valid Catholic Traditional Latin Mass with an invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service or with a Modernist Vatican II Latin "Mess of 1962." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Lisbon Il Sismographo.]
Secondly, like all the clergy of Newchurch, Mariadiaga is ignorant of Catholic theology. The poor man went to a Newchurch seminary, which was more interested in paedophilia than Catholic theology. Moreover, he was never ordained as a Catholic priest in the Sacrament of Holy Orders. He was merely installed as a Protestantized presbyter/minister under Hannibal Bugnini's invalid New Ordinal of 1968. Nor was he ever consecrated as a Catholic bishop. He was merely installed as a Protestantized Newbishop under Hannibal Bugnini's invalid New Ordinal of 1968.
Mariadiaga is worse than a Protestant. At least a Protestant would be expected to know the Bible; Mariadiaga clearly does not. Our Lord Jesus Christ's teaching on the matter is crystal clear:
Jesus said to him: Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with thy whole heart, and they whole soul, and with they whole mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment (Matthew 22-37-38/DRV).
Thus, the worship of God is primary, not secondary, as Maradiaga maintains. If we worship God, as His Third Commandment requires, the rest will fall into place, not the other way around. Catholic theology is clear in declaring that the first object of prayer is the adoration of God in Himself: Gloria in excelsis Deo. Christ's true Church is not an earthly charity business, to be run by phony Newchurch clergy, who are, as we have seen so many times, sure to take their own personal cut.
Good Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio and his chief lieutenant -- for Mariadiaga is head of the Council of Cardinals that Bergoglio appointed to run the Church for him -- are clearly anti-Christian. They are certainly not Catholics, and not even Christians. They are clearly destroying what very little remains of Catholicism in the Newchurch of the New Order. No true Catholic can have anything to do with them and their treachery to Christ. Wearing a white cassock doesn't make a Christian.
Yet another Newchurch presbyter was arrested on December 12, 2014, for knowingly soliciting underage girls on the internet. Presbyter Solomon Bandiho was charged with child prostitution for arranging rendezvous for the bargain-basement price of sixty dollars. When arrested, Bahdiho went berserk and had to be tazed. Bandiho ran Newchurch's Holy Cross Novus Ordo temple in Mesa, Arizona.
A Mesa police detective commented: "When you have people who are willing to prey upon our juveniles, those are some of the worst people in our society." We wonder what the detective would have to say about Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, who suborns the rape, sodomy, and sexual assault of children to the extent that he has been termed the "Third Paedophile Newpope." Thomas Olmsted, the Newbishop of Phoenix, Arizona, was caught dumb. Of course, he knew nothing. Yeah, right!
Bandiho was never ordained as a Catholic priest in the valid Sacrament of Holy Orders, which the Newchurch of the New Order dumped for its clergy in 1968. He was merely "installed" as a Protestantized presbyter-minister under the invalid New Ordinal of 1968. Bandiho had an association with the perverted Newjesuits, to which Francis-Bergoglio belongs, as he was a doctoral student from the Newjesuit School of Theology of Santa Clara University in California. He remains a presbyter in good standing in his home Newdiocese of Bukoba, Nigeria, so he can still simulate the invalid Novus Order Mess. His Newbishop gave him a letter of recommendation and good standing. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Arizona Republic.]
Good Catholics, here again we have the perverted and immoral Newchurch clergy preying upon children. Nothing has changed under Francis-Bergoglio. If anything, things have gotten worse, according to several studies. This perversion has for decades since the Modernist Vatican II become worldwide, with all continents now involved in the most vile acts. Well, maybe Antarctica has escaped them -- but we doubt it!
Francis-Bergoglio will be giving a Valentine's gift Newchurch radicals when he appoints a batch of new Newcardinals on February 14, 2015, a "brood of vipers," if you will. The Newcardinals, as yet unnamed, are expected to reflect the Marxist proclivities of Bergoglio, and to place an indelible radical stamp on Newchurch's cardinals.
In less than two years, Bergoglio has already had a disproportionate impact on the Newchurch's College of Cardinals. If he names even ten new Newcardinals in February 2015, it will bring the total of his appointees to at least 26 cardinals out of the 120, which will account for more than 20 per cent of the radicalized Newcollege to elect the next Newpope.

A Newparishioner of a Novus Ordo church that was to be closed has accused Michael Campbell, the Newbishop of Lancaster, England, in an open letter of not reading communications sent to him. The communications sent regarded the closing and merging of Novus Ordo churches.
Newchurch bishops frequently lie to their Newchurchers, saying that they want to hear their opinions. But, in fact, they don't pay attention to them and don't read their communications. For frankly expressing his disappointment in Newchurch, the letter writer was threated by his Newbishop with "libel." Such is the "charity" of vile Newchurch bishops. They're frauds and hypocrites. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Daily Telegraph.]
Good Catholics, we TRADITIO Fathers have consistently told you not to waste your time writing to Newbishops and Newpopes. Such communications are simply ignored and despised. As to laypeople "libeling" corrupt Newbishops, is Newchurch now going to sue Jesus Christ, who regularly "slandered" the Church officials of his time, calling them a "brood of vipers" (Matthew 3:7/DRV) and "whited sepulchres, which outwardly appear to men beautiful but within are full of dead men's bones and of all filthiness. So you also outwardly indeed appear to men just: but inwardly you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity" (Matthew 23:27-28/DRV)? Nothing has changed. If anything, the Church is worse in our day that it was in Christ's!
The TRADITIO Network has received the text of a secret memorandum, dated November 26, 2014, which Bernie Fellay, the Neo-SSPX's Superior-Dictator, ordered "must not be circulated under any circumstances." Because we TRADITIO Fathers don't answer to Fellay, we are making it public, as we believe that all Neo-SSPX members have the right to know what their leader is doing in their name.
On September 23, 2014, Fellay met with Newcardinal Gerhard Muller, after Muller summoned Fellay to Newrome, and like a little child, Fellay ran off to Newrome. At that meeting Fellay agreed to organize secret talks between himself and the New Order sect "without media coverage or publicity." In other words, the Neo-SSPX membership was to be kept in the dark about what their leader was doing in their name to sell out their organization to the unCatholic Newchurch of the New Order, run by the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio. Thus, Fellay conspired to lie to his membership. Lying is a Big Sin against the Eighth Commandment of God. Curiously, Newcardinal Muller washed his hands of the matter and left "the choice of places and interlocutors" to Fellay's discretion.
Now Fellay's jig is up. It is known from his secret memorandum where the meeting will take place: Zitzkofen, Germany. It is now known from his secret memorandum who will represent his untraditional Neo-SSPX with himself presiding: Messrs. Franz Schmidberger, Stefan Frey, Firmin Udressy, Matthias Gaudron, Wuffloud, and Kasteleiner. Newrome will be represented by Newcardinal Brandmuller.
Good Catholics, the Neo-SSPXers are being taken by their leader, Bernie Fellay, as fools. He regularly lies to them, and the remaining Neo-SSPXers are either too dumb or too cowardly to leave his untraditional cocoon. Fortunately, 100 Neo-SSPX priests and their congregations, 20 per cent of the Neo-SSPX, have deserted Fellay and have now set up independent Mass sites all over the world to give traditional Catholics the true Mass and Sacraments, not the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II Mess that Fellay shovels out to them. The big question is: how long will it take the remaining 80 per cent to smarten up and get out of Fellay's traitorous Neo-SSPX?
If anyone had any doubt that Francis-Bergoglio is a full-blown homophile, his firing, on December 3, of the Commander of his Swiss Guards for being "too strict" should blast away any doubts. Inside sources reveal that Commander Daniel Anrig was "too strict" in his determination to have nothing to do with homosexuals in the Swiss Guards and in the Newvatican clergy, but Bergoglio wants more of them included.
Commander Anrig has served since 2008, and the Swiss Guard has served as a kind of Roman Imperial Guard for the pope since the 15th century. Members must be single, Catholic, morally irreproachable, and between the ages of 19 and 30. The problem is with the "morally irreproachable" part. The Commander agrees with Sacred Scripture and Catholic moral teaching that homosexuality is morally filthy. Bergoglio doesn't.
Several guards under JPII-Wojtyla and Benedict-Ratzinger revealed that the Swiss Guards had been receiving filthy advances from Newvatican clergy. Anrig's predecessor, Commander Elmar Mader, told a Swiss newspaper: "I cannot refute the claim that there is a Homosexual Network (in Newvatican). My experience speaks for the existence of such (a network)." He ordered his Guards to "stay away from lustful clerics." Mader went so far as to bring the filthy situation to the attention of the Newcuria in writing, stating that the homosexual network is "a threat to the security of the pope" and have become a secret society loyal only to themselves.
For his loyalty to Benedict-Ratzinger, Mader was terminated in 2008. Newvatican doesn't want the truth to get out. But now that the Swiss newspaper has published the inside reports, Newvatican cannot deny the presence of a Homosexual Network in Bergoglio's administration. Even Bergoglio doesn't deny the fact; he just won't do anything about it. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Schweiz am Sonntag.]
Good Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio is running a filthy shop. The Marxist pope refuses to do anything to clean his Newchurch "sewer of blood and filth," to use Dante Alighieri's description of the pope of his time. Thus, Bergoglio has placed himself under St. Paul's mortal condemnation: "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.
In the darkness of Christmas Eve, December 24, is traditionally chanted the traditional Hour of Matins of the Divine Office for the Nativity of Our Lord, consisting of ancient antiphons, hymns, psalms, and the ancient commentaries of the Church Fathers on the significance of the Nativity. For example, in the Third Nocturn, Holy Mother Church provides us with the commentary of Pope St. Gregory the Great on the census proclamation of the Roman emperor that brought the Holy Family to Bethlehem, the commentary of St. Ambrose on the significance of the shepherds, and the commentary of St. Augustine on the Incarnation of the Word. Following Matins is traditionally held the procession to the creche and the High Mass of Christmas at Midnight (In Nocte), the First Mass of Christmas.
Good Catholics, it is most unfortunate that many of you do not have access to the Midnight High Mass, let alone the Solemn Matins of Christmas Eve, which precedes it and prepares for it. Fortunately, the St. John Schola has made available to the traditional Catholic faithful these significant rites on two CDs. For further information, click on the TRADITIO Network's Gregorian Chant department for Volume I and Volume II of that Gregorian schola's recordings of Christmas Matins and Christmas High Mass. For you traditional Catholics who do not have the opportunity to attend these singular rites in person, at least you may participate in them spiritually through these recordings. Do not lose the opportunity. These rites are an essential part of your traditional Catholic Faith.
It's post Vatican II all over again. In 1969 Catholics were told that they had to accept the invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Novus Ordo Mess of 1969 because it was "new" and "modern." The Traditional Latin Mass was for old fogies, and even they couldn't have it -- except in the case of blind presbyters.
Of course, we know that what Newchurch calls the "Latin Mass" may be in Latin, but it certainly isn't the Traditional Latin Mass. It isn't celebrated by ordained priests, but by powerless unordained New Order presbyter-ministers. It was part of Benedict-Ratzinger's Great "Motu" Mess Hoax, which was meant to keep SSPXers in the New Order sect at the same time that Bernie Fellay was trying to sell his Neo-SSPX out to the New Order. Ratzinger never intended for it, now often erroneously called the "Extraordinary" Mass, to last very long, and in less than two years Francis-Bergoglio has started steps to stamp it out, calling those who want it every nasty name in the book: "Pelagian doctrinaire ideologues."
Now the Millennial, a mouthpiece for the New Order, has denounced the "Latin Mess," particularly among millennials, defined as those born between 1980 and 2000, as traitorous to the Modernist Vatican II Council. What is worse, some of these millennials actually think that the invalid Novus Ordo Mess, proclaimed by Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger to be the "Ordinary Mess" of Newchurch, "is actually inferior." And these millennials are not members of Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX, which is becoming less and less traditional all the time, but independents, who take advantage not of the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II Mess of 1962, but of the true Traditional Latin Mass from before 1956, still offered by many traditional organizations and independent traditional Catholic priests around the world.
The Millennial article calls these 25 to 35-year-olds heretics, "at odds with the teachings" of Newchurch. Actually, the periodical states one aspect of the case for the real Traditional Latin Mass quite well, a case that it opposes:
The Ordinary Form [invalid Novus Ordo Mess of 1969] is to be blamed for church decline: parishes used to be packed with men who saw the Mass as something masculine, inspiring, and something worth sacrificing time for. A few decades later, most parish Masses are dominated by women.
With Francis-Bergoglio the Newchurch of the New Order and his Extraordinary Synod on the Family, has become officially homosexualized. But the Millennial goes on correctly to term the "Extraordinary Mess" to be "nothing but a fad." That is how Ratzinger intended his Motu Proprio of 2007, which tolerated not the Traditional Latin Mass, but the Half Novus Ordo Mess of 1962 as merely "extraordinary," to be superseded by the invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Novus Ordo Mess of 1969, which Ratzinger simultaneously declared to be the "Ordinary Mess" of the unCatholic New Order sect.
Good Catholics, the pseudo-traditionalists, who fawn on Benedict-Ratzinger for his Great "Motu" Mess Hoax of 2007, now have to accept the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, who has made it clear in no uncertain terms that he wants to get rid of the "Extraordinary" Mess, and has already taken several steps to do so in his first nineteen months. The pseudo-traditionalists, including Bernie Fellay and his Neo-SSPX are on a sinking ship. They'd better don their life-preservers and jump the Newchurch ship that now they hanker to join. If they don't, they will drown in icy water like most of the passengers on the Titanic!
In the post-Modernistic period, nine out of ten Newchurchers fail to go to their invalid New Order Messes. But there was a time, when the Church was Catholic, that the Hispanic faithful would, for nine consecutive days before the Feast of the Nativity of Our Lord, assist as the Misas de Aquinaldo, or "Christmas Bonus" Masses, also known as the Misas de Gallo, or Masses of the Cock's Crow, because they were celebrated just before dawn, at 04:00 local time. The Misas de Gallo were culminated by the First Mass of Christmas, a High Mass, celebrated at midnight on Christmas Eve.
When the Church was Catholic, big, beautifully decorated churches were filled to overflowing with people of all ages assisting at the real Traditional Latin Mass for nine days, at 04:00 yet! After nine consecutive mornings, preparations were made for the culminating activity: the High Mass at midnight on December 24. The 24th itself was a big day for Confessions. Everyone lined up before the confessional and also prepared by a day of fast and abstinence on Christmas Eve, the Vigil of one of the greatest feasts in the Church calendar. The High Mass, the First Mass of Christmas in Nocte, lasted two hours. For the faithful, the time passed all too quickly, and when the High Mass ended, all left the church with feelings of joy that could not be contained. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Inquirer.]
Good Catholics, let's fast forward to today, when Francis-Bergoglio's unCatholic New Order sect no longer practices the Catholic and Apostolic fast and abstinence required on the Vigil of the Nativity since the time of Our Lord and becomes bored after half an hour of a phony Novus Ordo "Mess." Let's face it: Newchurchers are not Catholics; they are worse than Protestants!
In his "homily" at his weekly General Audience on November 26, 2014, Francis-Bergoglio, who of all the Newpopes is the most theologically ignorant, suggested that animals go to Heaven, that animals have the "hope of salvation." Even Protestants laughed at the ridiculous Bergoglio. Animals are not rational beings and therefore cannot choose salvation, as human beings, who were created in the image of God, can (Genesis 1:27) can. What's next: Novus Ordo dog "saints"? And what about slugs, spiders, and snakes? They're animals too. The Marxist Bergoglio is now exposed as a pagan!
Even a professor at a Pontifical University at Rome suggested that Bergoglio was a theological idiot for hinting at such a claim. Not to speak of St. Thomas Aquinas, the Principal Theologian of the Catholic Church, who clearly understood that animals have no rational and cannot chose Christ and salvation. Not even to speak of ex-Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger, who stated: "Animals are not called to eternity; death just means the end of existence on earth." And Ratzinger was a well-known ailurophile. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Guardian.]
Good Catholics, the Novus Ordo Dog "saint" lifts his leg on Francis-Bergoglio and his ignorant theology. What's next? Black Widow spiders poisoning every soul in Heaven? Actually, we TRADITIO Fathers are not so adverse to Bergoglio's notions. If animals can merit Heaven and Novus Ordo "sainthood," they can stand for election as Newpopes. A dog or cat Newpope would could not be worse than the unCatholic, Marxist Bergoglio!
On December 2, 2014, in the 21st year of its apostolate on the internet, the TRADITIO Network logged its 23,000,000th 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 23,000,000 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.
On December 1, 2014, Francis-Bergoglio's unconsecrated new Newarchbishop of Chicago, Illinois, was asked on the television news program Face the Nation whether it was permissible to hand out the Novus Ordo cookie to politicians who publicly legislate the legality of abortion and government subsidy of abortion, like U.S. Vice President Joseph Biden and U.S. House minority leader Nancy Pelosi, both of whom falsely call themselves "Catholic" in an effort to win votes from the clueless Newchurchers.
If Cupich were actually a Catholic archbishop, he would protect with his life the Holy Eucharist (we realize, of course, that the Novus Ordo cookie is not a valid sacrament, but the Protestant Newchurchers like Cupich falsely think that it is). The unequivocal Catholic answer is: No, it is not permissible to hand out the Novus Ordo cookie to politicians who publicly advocate the legality of abortion and public subsidy of abortion.
But hear with what politicized weasel-wording the non-Catholic Cupich speaks of the integrity (or lack thereof) of what is supposed to be the Sacrament:
Well, I think that is important always to begin with an attitude of dialogue. It's important to listen to people and it's very hard to have dialogue because in order for someone to tell you why they think you are wrong, you have to sit in patience to allow that to happen. The community -- as I say, cannot be the place where those discussions are fought, but rather we have to look at how we're going to deal with the tough issues of the day in a constructive way and as adults who respect each other.
Oh, yes Cupich, we must have Vatican II-Bergoglio "dialogue" and "respect" -- except, that is, respect for God! Such people in ecclesiastical terminology are "notorious criminals" and must be refused the sacraments, Catholic burial, etc. The purpose is to encourage them to mend their ways and repent of their public immorality. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic World News.]
Good Catholics, you see how Francis-Bergoglio's anti-Catholicism and political pussyfooting infects his New Order sect and his personal appointees. Our Lord teaches just the opposite: "But let your speech be yea, yea: no, no: and that which is over and above these, is of evil" (Matthew 5:37/DRV).
As Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order becomes more anti-Catholic and more immoral, the worst secular forces gain the ascendancy because there is no one to speak for traditional Catholic morality. We all know the moral horrors of abortion, but now it is euthanasia that has taken the ascendency.
As of December 1, 2014, physicians in The Netherlands are considering new guidelines for organ donations, and some surgeons are arguing strongly in favor of "harvesting" the organs of people whom physicians assisted to commit suicide. Once physicians were considered next to God, as they swore to help their patients when they took the Hippocratic Oath Primum Non Nocere. Now some of them are perjuring themselves and thus committing Mortal Sins against the Eighth Commandment of God. They are also committing Mortal Sins against the Fifth Commandment of God by conspiring to kill their patients. Willful murder is, after all, one of the Four Sins that Cry out to Heaven for Justice. There is such a market now for "harvested" organs of these souls that even some physicians are getting into the game. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
We TRADITIO Fathers have frequently gotten questions about whether it is moral to donate one's organs after death. Theologically, it may be acceptable, but in the present age it is demonstrably imprudent for any traditional Catholic to do so. In the present godless era, signing an organ-donation card is tantamount to giving the government and immoral physicians the green light to kill to donor to get his valuable organs. Without such a card, the establishment is required to keep you alive -- for now.

It was a prophetic beginning to Francis-Bergoglio's Newpapal junket to Istanbul, Turkey, to meet with infidels and schismatics: Bergoglio tripped while walking on a red carpet from his airplane. If an infidel and a schismatic hadn't held him up, he would have flopped face down on the tarmack. The November 28, 2014, incident was reminiscent of the first step Bergoglio took as Newpope, when he tripped on his Newpapal chair and almost went plop. Is God trying to tell the world something about this man, who is looking more and more in public like an anti-Catholic buffoon?
Like an infidel himself, Bergoglio doffed his Newpapal slippers to turn to Mecca, bow his head, and venerate the infidel Mohammed, as the Muezzin's shrill Mohammedan call to prayer rang out: "La illahi illa allah, wa muhammed rasula alla [There is no God but God, and Mohammed is His prophet]." Bergoglio had changed the time of his visit so that it would not conflict with the Mohammedans' noon prayers. His Modernist precedessor Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger, did the same, both scandalizing the Catholic world, as such an act is a grave sin against the First Commandment of God, which does not have an exception clause for those who claim to be Newpopes.
Istanbul was once the capital of the great Roman Empire, when it was then called Constantinople after the Roman emperor, Constantine, who allowed Christians to worship openly and moved the imperial capital from Rome to Constantinople so that the pope could remain in Rome, the seat of the Catholic Church. Now there are barely any Catholics left in Mohammedan Istanbul: 53,000 out of a total population of 73,700,000, or 0.07 per cent. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
Good Catholics, Benedict-Ratzinger was bad enough, pandering to the infidels in 2007, but Francis-Bergoglio has upped the ante. One can justly wonder whether there is anyone who stands for the Catholic Church these days. Bergoglio has abandoned it for the New Order sect and sycophancy to Jews, Mohammedans, pagan Hindus, and atheistic Buddhists. If you are a traditional Catholic and a member of your local traditional Catholic community, it is you who are left to stand up for the Catholic Church. You just don't know how important you are in Our Lord's scheme of things, Who famously asked: "But yet the Son of Man, when he cometh, shall he find, think you, faith on earth?" (Luke 18:8/DRV).
During his recent papal junket to Turkey, Francis-Bergoglio bowed low to the Schismatic "Oecumenical" Patriarch Bartholomew. In traditional Catholic practice, a true pope bows to no one on earth and reserves a low bow only to the Lord Jesus Christ Crucified. Moreover, Bergoglio committed public sacrilege by asking the schismatic patriarch to bless him and the "Church of Rome" (benedire me e la Chiesa di Roma). Bartholomew, according to the international media, was so stunned that he refused to give the requested blessing, but instead gave Bergoglio the kiss-off: he kissed him on the head as one would a child.
What was even more surprising is that Bergoglio did not even refer to his sect as the "Catholic Church," but merely as the Church of Rome (Chiesa di Roma). That is how the Eastern Schismatics refer to Newchurch -- not as the Catholic Church, but merely as the "Church of Rome." They regard Bergoglio has head of the "Church of Rome," not as pope over all the Church. Curiously, Bergoglio, who is known to be language-impaired, did not address the Schismatic Patriarch in Catholic Latin, which the Patriarch knows, but in Italian, which he does not know. This is a pope?
The Marxist Bergoglio committed the same sacrilege when he asked on June 16, 2014, for the -- not schismatic, but -- Heretic Archbishop of the Church of England, Justin Welby, who openly approved the admission of public homosexuals as his presbyters and bishops/bishopesses, thus causing traditional Anglican/Episcopalians to abandon his sect. Never has a man who alleges himself to be a pope asked for the blessing of schismatics and heretics. In 1975, Newpope Paul VI "The Catholic Church Destroyer" Montini kissed the feet of the Schismatic Greek Orthodox Bishop Meliton of Calcedon, but at least the Schismatic Bishop tried to kiss Montini's feet in return. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Zenit.]
Good Catholics, Bergoglio himself has, by bowing down to Schismatics and Heretic Bishops, has clearly proclaimed to the world that he does not believe himself to be a pope, but merely as a subordinate of Heretic and Schismatic Bishops of an "Oecumenical Sect." His statement could not be clearer. Truly, Bergoglio is a Marxist plant, whose purpose is, by his own words and actions, to destroy what very little remains of the Catholic Church in Newrome. No true Catholic should have any compunctions about deserting Bergoglio outright.
Newchurch has for the second time in recent weeks warned against "worshipping with dissenting groups," particularly Bernie Fellay's Neo-Society of St. Pius X, which, ironically, is not all that dissenting any longer, but wishes to join the Newchurch of the New Order whenever possible.
Newchurch Bishop David "Attila" Zubik, of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, is hardly one to talk against "dissidents." After all, he's one himself! He deviates from Catholic theology in many areas, not least of which is that he wants to ordain priestesses against Jesus Christ and Catholic and Apostolic Tradition. Zubik gained his eponym "Atilla," after the destructive Hun, when Zubik bashed to smithereens with a wrecking-ball the historic, traditional St. Nicholas Church. Then Zubik notoriously placed his Novus Ordo mitre on the head of a girl to symbolize the future consecration of priestesses, as, he said, "it is never too early to plant the seed of ordination."
On November 28, 2014, "Unbishop" Zubik decreed that "free and willful participation" with the Neo-SSPX separated the Neo-SSPXer from the Newchurch of the New Order, as Newpope Francis-Bergoglio has declared Fellay and his group "schismatic" from Newchurch. Zubik equated Fellay's Neo-SSPX with another group operating in the Pittsburg area, lead by a Womanpriest installed in 2006 and subsequently made a bishopess. The group advertises for divorced/remarried and "gay Catholics" for its congregation. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.]
Good Catholics, when Bernie Fellay from the year 2000 played the sycophant to the Newpopes and their New Order sect, and abandoned the clear traditional Catholic principles of his founder, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, he opened himself up to such a comparison. Fellay isn't there yet, but when he finally joins the New Order sect in due course, such radicals are the kind of people with whom he will perforce have to associate himself, and those remaining Neo-SSPXers who will go with him to perfidy.
Forty years ago, on November 21, 1974, a great Archbishop said No! to the unCatholic Newchurch of the New Order. This was not just any Archbishop, but Pope Pius XII's Apostolic Delegate and Superior-General of one of the largest religious orders in the Catholic Church. On that day, the Archbishop declared the reasons that he and his followers in the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) were rejecting the New Order sect and its false, unCatholic religion fabricated in the wake of the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965).
In his ten-paragraph Declaration, the Archbishop contrasted Eternal or Catholic Rome, the true, unchanging Catholic religion of God, with Modernist Rome, espousing the unCatholic Conciliar religion of man, which is Protestant. The Archbishop chose Tradition and refused innovations, in following the teaching of St. Paul in Galatians (1:8) and 2 Timothy (4:3-4). He courageously called out the Modernist Vatican II Council for what it is, doctrinally "coming from heresy and resulting in heresy." He committed to continuing to ordain Catholic priests, when by that time Newchurch was no longer ordaining Catholic priests, but "installing presbyters (ministers)."
Since 1994, the Archbishop's unworthy successor, Bernie Fellay has transmogrified the Archbishop's traditional Society of St. Pius X into a quasi-Modernist Neo-SSPX, just as the Catholic Church was, by 1969, transmogrified into an Uncatholic Newchurch, characterized by an invalid Protestantized New Order service and sacraments, including a priesthood turned into a Protestantized ministry. Fellay has, in fact, rejected the Archbishop's traditional Catholic Declaration and fraudulently led his Neo-SSPXers to believe that his Neo-SSPX is the traditional SSPX, just as Francis-Bergoglio fraudulently leads his Newchurchers to believe that Newchurch is the Catholic Church.
Good Catholics, the former SSPX senior bishop has characterized Bernie Fellay's fraudulent Neo-SSPX as "little more than a decorous mascot." Shame on you, Bernie. You are a traitor to your benefactor, Archbishop Lefebvre, and you are a fraudster to your sheeple. If they had any guts, they would expel you to the Biblical exterior darkness, where you would spend your time weeping and gnashing your teeth for your perfidy to the Archbishop and to the Catholic Faith.
