Francis-Bergoglio is being decried for naming on February 23, 2015, as a Doctor of Newchurch an Oriental Orthodox heretic and schismatic, Gregory of Narek. He was a Monophysite heretic, rejecting the Catholic dogma of the two Natures, human and divine, in the incarnate Christ as defined at the Council of Chalcedon, the Fourth Oecumenical Council, in 451. Gregory also rejected papal primacy and was not in communion with the See of Rome.
Gregory of Narek was a priest and monk not of the Catholic Church, but of the Armenian Apostolic Church, which is part of the non-Chalcedonian (Oriental Orthodox) sect. The Armenian Church has not been in communion with the See of Rome since at least the sixth century. The very small Armenian Catholic (Eastern Rite) Church did not come into existence until many centuries after Gregory's death. Narek is in Armenia (present-day Turkey). [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Vatican Information Services.]
True Catholics, this action of Francis-Bergoglio may be a foretaste of con-anizations of heretics and schismatics to come. One name that has been bandied around since 2000 for con-anization is that of the Arch-heretic Martin Luther. Every day brings more proof that Newchurch is most certainly not the Catholic Church.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I was wondering whether a Catholic may make funeral or wedding arrangements for non-Catholics. May he help pick out the hymns and prayers, for example, for a Protestant service? I am well aware that a Catholic is absolutely forbidden to participate actively in such a funeral or wedding service. I was also wondering what to do if the person who died belonged to a pagan sect where cremation was mandatory (like Hinduism). May a Catholic arrange for a Hindu cleric to perform these cremation rites?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply:
Just reading your question should make any Catholic shudder. How would a Catholic let himself get into such situations, as they would obviously involve active participation in sects and rites that are abhorrent to Catholic teaching. In justice, you should tell any such persons well in advance that you cannot be involved in any arrangements and that they must select someone else. There are other alternatives. For example, the funeral director can arrange the funeral and spare the conscience of the Catholic.
On the positive side, what a wonderful opportunity such a situation affords you to demonstrate the sincerity of your Catholic Faith and to teach such persons about the true Faith, giving them the possibility of conversion to that true Faith.
Remember when the Second Paedophile Newpope, JPII-Wojtyla, wanted to make the arch-heretic Martin Luther a Newchurch "saint" to commemorate the millennial year 2000? In the end, he got so much push-back that he backed off. Fifteen years later Francis-Bergoglio is now making the same noises about con-anizing schismatics.
On February 15, 2015, 21 Coptic schismatics were murdered in Libya by Mohammedan Jihadists affiliated with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL). Murder is murder, whoever is murdered. It is a sin against God's Natural Law, as well as the Fifth Commandment of God, and in addition is one of the Four Sins that Cry out to Heaven for Retribution, together with sodomy and sins against nature; oppression of widows, children, and the poor; and defrauding laborers of their just wages).
Yet the Copts are a schismatic sect. Bergoglio, in an audience with a Scottish "oecumenical" delegation on the following day, took the opportunity to enunciate the doctrine of False Oecumenism: "Catholic, Orthodox, Copts, Lutherans, it doesn't matter." Yes, Bergoglio, it does matter. These people are victims of murder. They are not martyrs to the true Faith, and you should not dare to blaspheme Almighty God by attempting to make them phony "saints" of your own false New Order sect.
Bergoglio was apparently scared almost to death by the statement of the Mohammedan Jihadists that they planned to "conquer Rome," that is, Bergoglio's Modernist Newrome. If they succeed in doing so, they will not conquer the Catholic Faith, as that does not reside in Modernist Newrome. Bergoglio, you cannot hope to win over the Infidels by selling out to them. The only chance they have is for you to preach the true Catholic Faith to them, as did St. Dominic in an earlier age. But you will never do that because you publicly embrace atheist Marxist notions, not the true Catholic Faith. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by CBS News.]
True Catholics, let's face it. Bergoglio's Newrome is not Catholic. It is purely a secular political construct. No wonder even the Mohammedan Jihadists are thumbing their nose at the Marxist Newpope, who does not have the Catholic faith, but is making up some invalid Modernist doppelganger. And one thing at least that the Mohammedans know and recognize is tradition.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I have been in some purportedly traditional chapels that have Benedict-Ratzinger's photo hanging, some have Francis-Bergoglio's hanging, some have none at all. What do you think is appropriate?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
We would go with the last option: none at all. Making the pope (whoever you think he may be) into some kind of "personality" or "celebrity" is against Catholic teaching and blasphemes God. Until the last fifty years or so, most Catholics didn't even know the pope's name. After all, it didn't make any difference who the pope was. The Catholic Faith was the same, the Mass was the same, the Sacraments were the same, Catholic morality was the same. Fifty years ago Catholics knew that. Now they don't.
In Newchurch, education is so bad that few if any Newchurchers know the seminal creed of the Catholic Faith, the Apostles Creed. There are many who have difficulty with the Hail Mary. Talk to them about her Magnificat, and they look befuddled. Having "celebrity" photos of popes hung up teaches exactly the wrong thing: that it makes a difference who the pope is. It shouldn't make any difference at all. Many of these ill-educated Newchurchers probably think that the pope (whoever he may be) is some kind of demigod with semi-divine powers. Such a notion is a grave sin against the First Commandment of God, and those who believe it are showing themselves no better than pagans.
Here's a thought. What about taking down the pope's picture (whichever one it is) and substituting a representation of the chapel's Patron Saint? Now there's a Catholic idea for you! Maybe the congregation will be inspired to learn something about its Patron Saint.
Francis-Bergoglio's lying Newchurch is not just covering up rampant paedophiliac crimes against children by its Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters, but has now admitted a wholesale cover-up of 1,500,000,000 U.S. dollars that it claimed to have "discovered" recently. It turns out that the money had been know to be there all along, secreted off Newvatican's account books. Meanwhile, Francis "Mr. Poverty" Bergoglio had been lying to the world to the tune of 1.5 billion dollars, apparently to goose up more donations from his Newchurchers to fill up what he was falsely claiming to be a Peter's Pence drowning in red ink, while all the while Bergoglio was turning a large profit.
Bergoglio's Economic Czar, Newcardinal George Pell, who was immersed in paedophilia scandals in his Newarchdiocese of Sydney, Australia, until Bergoglio spirited him off to the security of a Newvatican diplomatic passport in February 2014, now admits that the huge sum was not just recently "discovered," but had been "tucked away" in secret accounts that did not appear on Newvatican's balance sheets -- a secret "reserve fund" totaling one-third of Newvatican's total assets. That would be pretty hard to forget, wouldn't it, but Bergoglio and Pell were easily able to pull the wool over the eyes of their clueless Newchurchers, who still seem to think that the Marxist Newpope is a "Holy Father" rather than the admitted unholy liar that he is now shown to be.
Then, on February 20, 2015, Pell went on to admit that he had feathered his own nest: the Newvatican pension fund for Newcardinal fat cats is fully funded for the next 10-15 years -- to the tune of some 600,000,000 U.S. dollars. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
True Catholics, if Francis-Bergoglio and George Pell didn't have "diplomatic immunity" for crimes, they would be charged with grand larceny and be thrown into prison for the rest of their lives. But because they wear Newchurch garb and have "diplomatic immunity," they will get away scot free. Newchurchers are really clueless if they contribute one cent to Bergoglio's scam Newchurch and thereby become accomplices to his fraud.
Just as we TRADITIO Fathers had predicted upon his election as Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio has revealed himself as an anti-traditional maniac. He has already called his own traditionalist Newchurchers (the "Extraordinarians" or "Motarians") "doctrinaire, idealogue, rigid, ritualistic, rigorous, Pelagian, and Donatist." He has suppressed the half New Order Vatican II "Mess of 1962+" among the Franciscans and wherever else he could. Now he is attacking directly that so-called "Extraordinary" Mess and those who perform it. One can only imagine what Bergoglio would say about the true Traditional Latin Mass of the Catholic Church!
On February 19, 2015, in his annual two-hour meeting with the presbyters of the Newdiocese of Rome, Bergoglio handed out a copy of his address to the Congregation for Divine [Sic] Worship on February 10, 2015. That address contained in-your-face contempt for and condemnation of his pseudo-traditionalist Newchurchers. Bergoglio had harsh words to say about "traditionalist" Newdiocesan seminaries (as if there are any). Bergoglio went on to charge that "traditionalist" seminarians manifest "moral and psychological imbalances." Bergoglio's statement was apparently intended to nip in the bud the increasing cases of pseudo-traditionalism among Newchurch seminarians.
In accordance with his announced anti-traditionalist policy, Francis-Bergoglio has directed his Newchurch Congregation of Bishops to "intervene" in such cases. In other words, Bergoglio wants his Newbishops to suppress the "Extraordinary" Mess and even more conservative New Order Messes. Bergoglio has has already called on the carpet three Newbishops outside of Italy who accepted "traditionalist" seminarians who were kicked out of other Newdioceses. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by L'Osservatore Romano.]
True Catholics, here is further evidence that Francis-Bergoglio hates his own pseudo-traditionalist Newseminarians and Newclergy who dare to uphold even the phony half New Order Vatican II "Motu/Extraordinary" Mess of 1962+. These Extraordinarians who are clinging to the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order to get their phony "Latin Mass" are getting a rude awakening. They should have had the guts long ago to get away from the anti-Catholic Newchurch and find a Traditional Latin Mass site and a priest ordained under the traditional rite of Holy Orders outside the purview of the unCatholic Newchurch. The Messes conducted under New Order auspices, whether Ordinary (Novus Ordo) or Extraordinary (1962+), are invalid because of defect of form and/or minister.
When Francis-Bergoglio conducted his annual meeting with the Newclergy of Newrome on February 19, 2015, in his St. Martha's luxury hotel, practically everyone missed the item he threw in at the end. One of the Newroman presbyters, probably a plant, asked about Newchurch going to a married presbyterate. It seems that nine days before, on the occasion of seven presbyters celebrating their fiftieth anniversary in the presbyterate, Bergoglio had invited five presbyters who had left their ministry to get married. The inquiring presbyter alluded to the fact that supposedly Easterners were allowed to marry.
Bergoglio surprised the group by saying, "The problem [a married clergy] is present in my agenda." Not only is Bergoglio working toward a Protestant male clergy, but he has in the past encouraged Newchurchers who advocate the installation of priestesses. That move would bring Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order that much further in line with liberalist Protestantism, which, particularly in the case of the Anglican/Episcopalian sect, has moved the Protestantism into an essentially feminized institution, run by priestesses and bishopesses, many of them lesbophiliacs. There have been undeniable indications that a goodly number of the presbyters and Newbishops in Newchurch are already of that inclination. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Vatican Information Services.]
We know that Newchurch has not had a priesthood, but only a Protestantized presbyterate, Protestant ministers, if you will, since 1968, when the invalid Protestantized New Ordinal replaced the Catholic Sacrament of Holy Orders. Subsequently, invalid presbyters have been "installed," not ordained in the Sacrament of Holy Orders. Traditionally, priestly celibacy has a biblical basis in the evangelical counsel of Our Lord and the Apostles in the New Testament, which can be found in numerous passages. It is clear that once the Apostles received the call, they did not lead a married life. For further information, click on FAQ10: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Beliefs? in the section "Priestly Celibacy."
The Apostolic Tradition of priestly celibacy was solemnly proclaimed by the dogmatic Council of Nicaea, the First Ecumenical Council, in 325. Canon No. 3, unanimously approved by the Fathers, admitted of no exceptions whatsoever. The Council considered that the prohibition imposed thereby on all bishops, priests, and deacons against having a wife absolute. All subsequent councils that have addressed the subject have renewed this interdiction.
Not only would it be a violation of Apostolic Tradition to blot out a custom decreed for 2,000 years to be absolutely obligatory, but also one must recognize that priestly celibacy is to be seen not merely as of ecclesiastical institution, but part of what is more broadly known in Catholic moral theology as "divine positive law," initiated by Christ and His Apostles. That is, it is not merely disciplinary in nature. There is a spiritual reason for this Apostolic Tradition. Spiritually, the cleric in major orders, by virtue of his ordination, contracts a marriage with the Church, and he cannot be a bigamist.
The universal law of priestly celibacy confirmed by the Council of Nicaea applied, and still applies, to the Eastern Church as well as the Western. It is noteworthy that at that Council, the Easterns made up the overwhelming majority. The Eastern Church -- now primarily Eastern Orthodox schismatics -- began at a late date to violate its own law of celibacy. The Eastern Church thus began to plant the seeds of its schism.
True Catholics, you see where the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio is going. It started with installations of Protestantized presbyters in 1968. Now Bergoglio seems to want to work toward a Protestantized married Newclergy. After that will come the priestess and bishopesses. Bergoglio's ideal Newchurch is already far worse than the conservative Protestant sects!
Maybe for Francis-Bergoglio, homosexuality is just another vehicle for raising more money for his immoral Newvatican. Having rented out the sacred Sistine Chapel to corporate tour groups, now he's giving VIP treatment to homosexual tour groups, while at the same time he gives the cold shoulder to his pseudo-traditionalist Newchurchers. Even the First Paedophile Newpope, JPII-Wojtyla, and the Second Paedophile Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger, didn't go this far. But Bergoglio is the same Newpope who chastised Newchurch parents for having more than one child, while at the same time praising parents who slapped their kids around.
Bergoglio was slobbering all over a tour group of fifty from New Ways Ministry, a prominent American Catholic "gay rights" group, giving them, on Ash Wednesday 2015 to boot, a VIP special audience for the first time ever in the history of the Church. Let's make it very clear. We're not talking about Newchurch officials who are trying to turn sodomites away from living in sin. We are talking about Newchurch officials who are championing "gay rights" -- as if there were such a thing. You might as well champion "murderers' rights"!
At least Bergoglio's predecessors had enough morality left that they ignored such groups. But Bergoglio placed this immoral group in a front section with dignitaries and special groups. Other officials in Newvatican were apparently embarrassed by Bergoglio's scandalous behavior. A list of participants released by Newvatican listed "a group of lay people accompanied by a sister," but did not mention that the group was a "gay rights" organization. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio is out of control. He has quickly moved from a position of "not judging" sodomites, even though Almighty God clearly does in Scripture. Bergoglio has moved to taking overt steps even to recognize "gay rights" -- which do not exist, any more than "murderer's rights" exist. The fact that Bergoglio chose Ash Wednesday, a day of profound penitence, to pander his immorality makes his sin that much more grave. If he were a real Catholic pope, he would have given a pointed sermon to this group to convert from their sinful ways, not give them VIP treatment!
Oops! It seems that Francis "Mr. Impoverished" Bergoglio has been lying to the public about just how rich his Newchurch is. His Economic Czar, Newcardinal George Pell, who has also been implicated in paedophilia collusion, fessed up to the Newcardinals' Extraordinary Consistory on February 13, 2015, that Newchurch had made a small error: of 1,500,000,000 U.S. dollars -- a full 33 per cent of Newchurch's total assets! Moreover, Bergoglio's Newchurch owns far more real estate than it had let on.
After Pell's report, which was supposed to be confidential, leaked out, Pell fell all over himself with specious reasons why the huge discrepancy occurred. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the German News Agency Crux.]
True Catholics, let's face it. If Pell and Bergoglio didn't have "diplomatic immunity," they would both be fired immediately and tried on charges of fraud to stockholders -- their Newchurchers. It couldn't happen to two more deserving fraudsters!
Few traditional Catholics could even name the founder of their movement. It was not Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre. His Society of St. Pius X was founded in 1970. But six years before, in 1964 Fr. Gommar DePauw founded the Catholic Traditionalist Movement. As a peritus at Vatican II, he saw first hand the coming takeover of the Catholic Church by the unCatholic Newchurch of the New Order. This gutsy priest, a triple licensate in Sacred Sciences from the premier Catholic University at Louvain, and a Belgian who fought in World War II, spoke out loudly and clearly about the phony Newchurch that was being engineered by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini and others during the mid 1960s.
Fr. DePauw quit his prestigious position as Vice Dean at the United States' premier seminary, at Baltimore, Maryland, and set up the Catholic Traditionalist Movement in the Pan American Building in New York, whence the Traditional Latin Mass was broadcast all over North America, supplemented by recordings, books, periodicals, and later CDs and the internet. Fr. DePauw was a remarkable individual, who is hated by the Newchurch pseudo-traditionalists because he exposed Newchurch for what it was: not Catholic and not valid. His arguments from Catholic theology, particularly from Sacred Scripture and the dogmatic Council of Trent, could not be answered by Newchurch.
Fr. DePauw, it seems, was one of the rare persons, other than popes, who actually saw the original text of the so-called "Third Secret of Fatima," in conjunction with is work as an expert at Vatican II. Others to see the original text were Fr. Malachi Martin, another noted traditional Catholic priest and recognized international author, and the traditional Catholic Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani, who later pulled the rug out from under the legitimacy of the "New Mess" and forced Paul VI-Montini to recall it in 1969 because it contained heresy. For further information, click on OTTAVIAN: Ottaviani Intervention: Short Critical Study of the New Order of Mass.
When JPII-Wojtyla revealed a bowdlerized version of the "Third Secret" in 2000, Fr. DePauw publicly rejected the fraud. He immediately noted that the passage in the original version concerning the fall of the Modernist Newchurch of the New Order was expunged. The original version that Fr. DePauw saw predicted: "an unbelievable, total doctrinal and moral and spiritual collapse of the establishment Catholic Church [Sic]." Fr. DePauw's statements were reasoned and conformed to statements previously made by the few before Vatican II who had seen the "Third Secret." [Some information for this Commentary was taken from World Net Daily.]
True Catholics, it is not hard to see what is going on here. Newchurch is not about to admit that it is not the Catholic Church, but a fraud deliberately engineered by Modernist heretics and condemned by the supposed apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary at Fatima. History has borne out Fr. DePauw's statements about the original content, as Newchurch, by all objective standards, sinks deeper and deeper a doctrinal, moral, and spiritual collapse, which has only been accelerated by the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio.
These days one has to wonder whether Francis-Bergoglio is even head of Newchurch or whether he is taking the next step by replacing his New Order sect with a Secular Sect. On February 12, 2015, Bergoglio unveiled his plans to resuscitate his corrupt Newvatican by setting up a new Congregation for "Global Warming." He was silent on the continuing paedophilia among his presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals. He was silent on the continuing corruption in his Vatican Bank and its close connections to the Mafia.
Since when are "environmental issues" the purview of the Catholic Church? They are within the realm of secular governments Bergoglio's ploy is to turn attention away from the fact that the true Catholic Church has been expelled from Newrome, to be demoted to some kind of European Union sub-agency for secular affairs. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Agence France-Presse.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's action is a desperate attempt to cover up a string of revelations about the internal bickering, cronyism, and corruption of his Newchurch, revealed in the international press. His own Newvatican stables need to be seriously mucked out, but he is not interested in "getting down and dirty." Instead, he wants to play in the sandbox of pseudo-science, which is outside his purview. Next he'll be declaring that the sun revolves around the earth! Bergoglio seems to be taking his false religion from his predecessor Nero, who, in the famous phrase, fiddled while Rome burned down. Bergoglio's Newrome is certainly burning into oblivion. "Mr. Popularity" may have coopted the press, but his institution is sinking fast -- as recent Gallup and Pew Studies have confirmed beyond a doubt.
Although February 28, 2015, will mark the second anniversary of Benedict-Ratzinger's abdication, the ex-Newpope is still just as actively being attacked for the wreck that was his eight-year Newpapacy. One analyst summed up the Second Paedophile Newpope as "a weak manager who may most be remembered for the way in which he left office..., [who] rejected even a modicum of transparency and preferred a damage-control campaign that diverted attention from the institutionís fundamental problems."
Ratzinger is still highly defensive. So actively does Ratzinger remain the subject of intense speculation among the international press and his own Newchurchers that he sent out his doppelganger, Newmonsignor Georg Gaenswein, whom some have claimed is Ratzinger's "intimate," to deny that Ratzinger was forced to abdicate. According to Gaenswein, all is copasetic. Yeah, sure. In Newvatican, reality doesn't exist. The sun rises in the west, and the stars come out during the daytime.
The reality is that Ratzinger's abdication came not long after the "Vatileaks" scandal, in which his butler turned over to the Italian press hundreds of documents proving Ratzinger's corruption. Then there was case after case made public of his supporting and covering up rampant paedophilia under his authority, not only as Newpope (2005-2013), but as JPII-Wojtyla's Sex Crimes Czar (2001-2005). [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Corriere della Sera.]
True Catholics, the reality is that Ratzinger didn't absent himself to a remote monastery, as the last pope to abdicate four hundred years earlier did. The discredited Unholy Father still dares to prance around in hypocritical white.
Traditional Catholics know, of course, that the Newchurch of the New Order by 1969 had lost the Catholic Mass and the Catholic priesthood, so the Most Blessed Sacrament has not resided in New Order tabernacles since them -- only invalid cookies. Now the Newbishop of Bellay-Ars, France, has taken the next step -- he has done away entirely with storing the cookies.
On February 10, 2015, Newbishop Paschal Roland issued his Ordinance on Parish Tabernacles. All the cookies are to be removed to a "secure location," and tabernacle doors must be kept open to indicate that the "eucharist" is not present. Roland certainly got that right! There has been no "eucharist" in Newchurch since at least 1969. His decree simply makes clear what has been the case for 45 years now. Roland's excuse for his action is that people have been stealing the cookies. Yeah, sure. Newchurch has been trying to get rid of tabernacles ever since the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965). The Protestants hate tabernacles because the Protestant heresy holds that the "eucharist" is present, if at all, only when "the people" are present. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
Such profanation of Catholic altars was long ago prophesied in Sacred Scripture, in the First Book of Machabees (4:38/DRV):
And they saw the sanctuary desolate, and the altar profaned, and the gates burnt, and shrubs growing up to the courts as in a forest or on the mountain, and the chambers joining to the temple thrown down.
But Judas Machabaeus and his brethren -- whom today we would call traditional Catholics -- took up arms to rout the heretics -- whom today we would call the Newchurch clergy (4:41-42,45-46/DRV):
Then Judas appointed men to fight against them that were in the castle, till they had cleansed the holy places. And he chose priests without blemish, whose will was set upon the law of God. And they cleansed the holy places and took away the stones that had been defiled into an unclean place.... And a a good counsel came into their minds, to pull it [the descrated altar] down; lest it should be a reproach to them, because the Gentiles [lege Newchurchers] had defiled it. So they threw it down.
True Catholics, pray that in our time true Catholics will eventually be follow the Scriptural example of Judas Machabaeus and his traditionalists of the Old Testament, to pull down the Novus Ordo altars, which are defiled in the eyes of God. If such does not happen, it is not God's fault. It is the fault of true Catholics who are too cowardly to stand up to the "abomination of desolation" that is Newchurch, but instead go along with the New Order sect and its phony presbyters, Mess, and cookies.
In Francis-Bergoglio's New Order sect, while paedophiles and financial fraudsters continue to operate with impunity, traditionalists are slandered with every nasty name in the book: doctrinaire, idealogue, rigid, ritualistic, rigorous, Pelagian, Donatist. Now Bergoglio's mouthpiece, Reinhard Marx, Newcardinal head of the German Bishops' Conference, in an interview with the Newjesuit magazine America, published on February 9, 2015, has called young traditionalists "terrorists" because they want to "be clear in their positions."
You see, in Francis-Bergoglio's New Order sect, the clarity of a St. Thomas Aquinas is condemned. It leaves no "wiggle room" for oecumeniacs, diversitarians, and pastoralists. In Francis-Bergoglio's Marxist world, the real terrorists in the Charlie Hebdo massacre in Paris on January 7, 2015, got what they deserved, according his public statement previously reported in these Daily Commentaries, but for Bergoglio, it is traditionalist-bent young Newchurchers who are the real "terrorists."
The appropriately-named Newcardinal Marx went on to tell America that he "applauds people in in homosexual partnerships who want a 'lifelong' relationship." This is a man who claims to be a "Catholic," but no Newchurchers have charged him with moral heresy. For Marx, one of the Four Biblical Sins that Cry out to Heaven for Retribution (sodomy) is acceptable "when they [homosexuals] are engaged for the poor, when they are working." So, for the anti-Catholic, Newcardinal Marx, homosexual acts are morally acceptable if the parties perform their Marxist duties.
If you are not already bowled over at how anti-Catholic Bergoglio's mouthpiece is, Marx went on to say: "I think the main point in the Gospel is not the ethical point." Not the ethical point?! Then what was Our Lord Jesus Christ teaching: Marxist socialism? Newcardinal Marx even stated: "We are celebrating this in our eucharists, and in our gatherings." Notice that in Newchurch Holy Mass is gone, replaced by invalid an Protestantized "eucharists." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LSN.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's anti-Catholic Newcardinal mouthpiece, addressing the subject of the divorced and civilly remarried Newchurchers receiving "eucharist," Marx opines: "Things are not clear." Really?! The Bible that we TRADITIO Fathers have quotes Our Lord Jesus Christ in three of the four Gospels, stating: "Every one that putteth away his wife, and marrieth another, committeth adultery: and he that marrieth her that is put away from her husband, commmitteth adultery" (Luke 16:18/DRV). Clear, isn't it? Crystal clear. Only anti-Catholic fraudsters like Bergoglio and Marx try to deceive you into thinking that it is not.
It is worth noting that Newchurch of the New Order, in conjunction with the implementation of the full-blown invalid New Order Mess of 1969, struck from its liturgical calendar, not only St. Valentine, but also St. Christopher, St. Blase, St. George, St. Barbara, and St. Catherine, and 200 other Saints who had been venerated in the Church for some two millennia. Curiously, the Anglican and Lutheran sects, as well as the Eastern Orthodox schismatics, still venerate St. Valentine as a Saint. THEREFORE, THOSE NEWCHURCHERS WHO GIVE OUT "VALENTINES" ARE ACTUALLY HYPOCRITES, SINCE THEIR OWN SECT DOESN'T RECOGNIZE THE EXISTENCE OF ST. VALENTINE.
As we have continuously demonstrated, Newcardinal Raymond "Bully" Burke is a hypocrite of the worst kind. The Neocon Newchurchers and pseudo-traditionalists love him because he will occasionally emit what appears to be a traditionalist-like statement, but then (what they ignore) is that he later recants it. Here is a recent case in point.
Originally, Burke told France2 television that he will resist" Francis-Bergoglio, should he contravene Catholic doctrine. Papal power is "at the service of the doctrine of the Faith," he explained, "and thus the pope does not have the power to change teaching, doctrine." That is a proper position, but then Burke, like the coward and hypocrite that he is, made a 180-degree turn and recanted his statement. Apparently, one of Bergoglio's hit-men told him that if he didn't recant, he wouldn't even get the trivial post as chaplain to the mediaeval Knights of Malta to which Bergoglio had exiled him, but would be buried so deeply that no one would ever hear from him again.
Accordingly, the craven coward Burke, who bullied others right and left, was bullied by Bergoglio's regime to recant his Newcardinalatial office, claiming that he was merely "responding to a hypothetical situation" when he stated that he would resist any possible move by Bergoglio away from Catholic doctrine. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]True Catholics, there have been no Newchurch bishops with the guts to stand up to the Newpopes who have imposed their New Order sect in place of the Catholic Church. These Newpopes are anti-Catholic and have turned the "institutional" Church into what the poet Dante Alighieri called "cloaca del sangue et della puzza" [a sewer of blood and filth]. It was the same Third Order Franciscan, Dante, approved by many popes for his orthodoxy, who wrote: "The darkest places in Hell are reserved for those who maintain their neutrality in a time of moral crisis." Burke and all his Newchurch colleagues, with their cowardice and failure to preach the Faith that they swore, with the Book of the Gospels placed upon their shoulders, to uphold, have richly earned their condemnation.
Nobody out there (beyond Canada) is making any comment on what has happened up here. Granted that Canada is considerably less important in world affairs than are the USA, China, Germany, France, the U.K., Brazil, Mexico, and many others. But it does have an effect on Western culture and on its neighbor to the south.
On February 6, 2015, the Supreme Court of Canada ruled unanimously to strike down the Canadian law that forbids assisted suicide and most euthanasia (the press having re-defined euthanasia so that this decision seems only to affect assisted suicide). It remains illegal to kill someone who is unconscious and who has left no instructions one way or the other before having become so. It is now, however, legal to kill someone who did leave instructions to be killed, and that is a species of euthanasia, not assisted suicide because people can change their minds after having composed such directions.
On February 9, 2015, a response was issued from the Canadian Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops. The response is being cheered by neo-conservatives and semi-traditionalists as proof that their New Order sect bishops will stand up against the Marxist-Feminists who control the Supreme Court, led by the Chief Justice, Audrey McLaughlin, one of the most anti-Christian justices living anywhere on this planet.
While the Newchurch bishops' statement looks emphatic, it does not directly command Catholic doctors to refuse to give referrals for assisted suicide and/or euthanasia on pain of Mortal Sin, let alone Excommunication. The statement does apparently say that anyone who assists such killing is guilty of Mortal Sin, but it does not mention by name the difficult problem of referrals. In addition, there is no call by the Newbishops for a tax revolt over this. That might have been done effectively in 1969, when abortion, contraception, and sodomy were all legalized at one blow. After one betrayal by the Newbishops of Canada after another, its Conference is now nothing more than a toothless dialoguer relying upon the Marxist Newchurch principles of Francis-Bergoglio, in collusion with the secularists and socialists who run Canada.
It is, in fact, significant that Canada has, in just one day legalized assisted suicide and most euthanasia. In 2004, Canada legalized inverted marriage. The USA is now following suit state by state, and mainly through the courts rather than popular vote -- the same mechanism that was used to impose over 50,000,000 abortions since 1973 in the United States. In 1969, Canada legalized abortion. Four years later, the Roe v. Wade decision had the same effect for the USA.
The Freemasons and secularists now have in Canada their "Unholy Trinity": abortion, inverted marriage, and euthanasia. They also have artificial contraception and divorce, which prepared the way. It is the failure of Newchurch to fight these evils unanimously and vigorously that has led our society to this point--to the destruction of Christendom. More will come, and it will come at vertiginous rates now. We descend into the abyss.
The recently-vaunted film American Sniper is not the most successful R-rated film of all time. That distinction goes to the traditional Catholic portrayal of the last hours of Christ in Mel Gibson's 2004 film, The Passion of the Christ. Gibson's film may also be the most profitable blockbuster of all time, toting up a production cost of only 30,000,000 dollars, while bringing in revenues of 371,000,000 in the United States alone.
Gibson certainly had the last laugh on his detractors, particularly the kipah-less mouthpiece for the Sons of the Old Covenant, Abraham Foxman, who tried every trick in the book to prevent Gibson from making the film, based upon the traditional Biblical account. Because of its traditional Catholic portrayal, the Newchurch of the New Order doesn't like it much either.
In fact, The Passion of the Christ continues to show brisk sales in DVDs during Lent. Many traditional Catholics and Biblical Protestants watch the film every year during Passiontide. Those Protestants also get a good exposure to the Church's Latin language, which Gibson uses in the scenes between the Roman procurator Pontius Pilate (played by Hristo Shopov) and Christ (played by James Caviezel).
What piques the anti-Christians and Liberalist/Modernist pseudo-Christians of the New Order is Gibson's rock-solid Christian teaching that the Passion is Christ's blood atonement for the sin of the world. Christ isn't just a teacher, a miracle-worker, or mankind's "brother," much less a confused man Who doesn't know what He is doing, as other films have portrayed Him. Rather, He is uncompromisingly the Son of God crucified for man. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Daily Republic.]
True Catholics, Christ's Passion and Death was a sacrificial act, which is renewed at every traditional Latin Mass -- the very Mass that the Newchurchers spurn in favor of a hokey Protestantized lovey-dovey service, which is neither valid nor a Mass. If they dared to see The Passion of the Christ, the evidence of that fact would undeniably be before their very eyes.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Is it true that beards and moustaches are prohibited for the Roman clergy? If so, what is the history behind that prohibition?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
That is the traditional principle. The Third Council of Carthage (397), which also codified the canon of Sacred Scripture that constituted the Holy Bible, forbade clerics to wear long hair or beards: "nec comam nutriat, nec barbam." The reason for the law must be sought in the distinction between cleric and layman. A shaven face is one of the accepted external signs of the clerical state of the Roman Church, and is part of the habitus ecclesiasticus of clerics in the Western Church, as well as being a Roman custom: "non nutriendi capillos nec in genis nec in mento."
The Romans were meticulously clean shaven until the time of the homosexual emperor Hadrian (r. 117-138). The Romans considered facial hair effeminate and a trait of the effete Middle East, including the Jews who had not converted to Christianity. In 1031 the Council of Limoge held that St. Peter shaved his beard, so his successors were expected to follow. Only limited exceptions were permitted to this traditional principle.
Moreover, priests having a moustache might get the Precious Blood on it, which would not be seemly. We recall a case of a New Order Franciscan friar who had a moustache and beard in which Particles of the Sacred Host could be seen, disgusting true Catholics and bordering on the sacrilegious.
Francis-Bergoglio's hypocritical soul was exposed to the world again just a few days after his remarks condemning parents who have more than one child as "breeding like rabbits." Atheistic-Communist China hailed that remark! The Marxist Newpope then went on a few days later to state that it was all right to hit children as long as you "preserve their dignity." Widespread criticism erupted in horror, and the world began now, perhaps for the first time, to understand why violent paedophilia continues in Bergoglio's regime by his presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals.
At his weekly General Audience on February 4, 2015, Bergoglio praised as a "good father" a man who "smacked his children around." Bergoglio's statement reminded us of Benedict-Ratzinger's brother, a Newchurch monsignor, who regularly struck his students so hard that they were hurled across the room and his own false teeth fell out!
Outspoken against Bergoglio's attitude toward children was Germany's Minister for the Family and the German Association for Children's Aid. It looks as if Bergoglio will not be able to rake in much from Peter's Pence this year! Bergoglio has been called upon to correct his statement as a "mistake" and was denounced as a dummkopf who "completely misses the point." Even a member of Bergoglio's own Commission for the Protection of Children publicly condemned his hypocritical leader for his statement. He called Bergoglio's statement a "howler." This man knows first hand. He himself was a child victim of a violent paedophile presbyter of Newchurch. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Agence France-Presse.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio once again shows himself as "Mr. Hypocrite" and "Mr. Fraud." He mercilessly propagandizes the international press with what a compassionate man he is when it comes to children. He loves photo ops kissing children. But when it comes to the beef, Bergoglio is right there to tell fathers to smack their children around! And some people still wonder why Newchurch is full of violent paedophile presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals? Just look at their perverted leadership!
The Newchurch of the New Order is on the verge of being declared a "public nuisance." That surely hits the nail on the head! The Newarchdiocese of Chicago, Illinois, covered up sex crimes against children and is now being sued on a renewed basis that opens a whole new can of worms for the paedophiliac Newchurch of the New Order.
Going beyond individual suits by children sodomized by Newchurch clergy, the new lawsuit was initiated February 5, 2015, to declare the Newarchdiocese globally a "public nuisance" because it shielded paedophile presbyters and allowed them to live freely in the community. This suit would allow the child victims to seek evidence of sex crimes by Newchurch officials across the Newarchdiocese, rather than focus on individual cases.
The new lawsuit seeks disclosure of the names and documents for all Newchurch clergy accused of abuse dating to 1950. Such a lawsuit was successful in Minnesota, where it forced the Newarchdiocese of St. Paul-Minneapolis and the Newdiocese of Winona to disclose tens of thousands of Newchurch documents and the names of dozens of accused presbyters, which were formerly kept secret. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press]
True Catholics, if Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch is declared a "public nuisance" in Chicago, such suits could spread like wildfire against all Newdioceses, forcing the disclosure of all the perverted acts and the names of all the presbyters who perpetrated them. This is information that Newchurch has for over a decade resisted giving. Newchurchers may soon discover just how rotten to the core their New Order sect is.
While Newvatican goes all out on phony propaganda about how "caring" Francis-Bergoglio is for children, at the same time his Newarchdiocese of Minneapolis-St. Paul, Minnesota, is busy cheating children out of their due recompense from being sodomized, raped, and sexually assaulted by Newchurch clergy.
While Bergoglio has been lying the world, his Newarchdiocese, the twelfth to declare bankruptcy because of sex crimes against children, has been squirreling away money into covert "nonprofit" corporations so that his Newarchdiocese doesn't have to pay for its unrepented Mortal Sins against the children, whose lives have been ruined and many of whom commit suicide. When confronted with the evidence that he was defrauding the children, Newarchbishop John Neinstedt refused to respond. What can you say when you are caught in flagrante delicto? One of Neinstedt's presbyter lackeys was quick to defend him, however, saying: "times require organizations to protect themselves." And we thought bishops were supposed to protect not corporations, but God's people, particularly children. That moral concept must have been tossed out with the Modernist Vatican II Council!
Francis-Bergoglio mouths platitudes about loving children and putting people above organizations. Yet Bergoglio hasn't taken any action against Neinstedt for his defrauding of the children. In a sworn deposition in 2015, Neinstedt's longtime point man for crimes against children by Newchurch clergy acknowledged that Neinstedt created one of these "nonprofit" corporations because donors feared that the courts would justly take their money to give to the child victims. And guess who is the Chairman of the corporation: John Neinstedt himself! What does that say about Newchurch donors? They're just as corrupt as the officials they venerate. The fraudulent "nonprofit" corporation now boasts of having assets of 280,000,000 dollars, which they hope cannot be touched by the child victims. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Duluth News Tribune.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio and his Newprelates are frauds. They are not Catholic. They are not Christian. While Bergoglio prances around playing "Mr. Popularity" and "Mr. Humble," his agents are cheating children out of the compensation for the gravely immoral and even deadly acts that they have perpetrated -- and continue to perpetrate -- against children. Our Lord Jesus Christ the Judge doesn't have a Hell hot enough for the like of Bergoglio and his "brood of vipers" (Matthew 3:7/DRV).
In a ruling that could have wide-ranging benefits for traditional Catholic churches, chapels, and oratories, an appeals court justice ruled that traditionalist Episcopalians who broke away from the radical liberalist "establishment" Episcopalian Church in the United States could keep all their churches and property. The establishment regime, which mouths "choice," had a conniption fit when traditionalist Episcopalians said: We've had enough of your anti-Biblical "gay marriage," homosexual ministers, and bishopesses being rammed down our throats, and separated themselves from the unChristian Episcopalian "establishment."
What presiding bishopess Katherine Jefferts-Schori was most afraid of, however, was not doctrine, but loss of property. Thus, the appellate court's ruling that the traditionalists get to keep their churches and property is a complete victory for traditionalists and a loss for the "establishment" Episcopalian diocese to the tune of of some half a billion dollars.
Dozens of traditionalist Episcopalian parishes gave Jefferts-Schori the raspberry when she said that they had to accept "gay" ministers, bishopesses, and "gay marriage" -- all of which spit in the face of Christian teaching and reflect a secular political takeover of the Protestant sect. Included in what the traditionalists get to keep are historic properties such as St. Philip's Church, first built in 1681, and St. Michael's Church, built the following century, both in Charleston, South Carolina.
The traditionalists quite correctly stated: "It's about the freedom to practice and proclaim faith in Jesus Christ as it has been handed down to us." The "establishment" Episcopalian sect has seen its membership plummet as more and more traditionalist congregations in states across the United States have separated from Jefferts-Schori's phony sect, which has become a political vehicle to push the "gay" and feminist agenda. Her membership by 2013 had plummeted to below two million, and has fallen further since then. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
True Catholics, the traditionalist Episcopalians, of course, remain Protestants, but at least they have a correct sense of the moral principles of the Christian Bible. One day, Deo volente, they will see their way to crossing of the Protestant divide to become traditional Catholics. Just as their "establishment" Episcopalian dioceses have deserted them and the Christian Faith, so Francis-Bergoglio and his Newchurch "establishment" dioceses, some even fabricating a phony and invalid Newchurch "Latin" Mess, aka the "Extraordinary" Mess or the "Mess of 1962+," to deceive their more conservative members, have deserted Catholicism.
Little by little over the past two years, the propaganda that is Francis-Bergoglio is being peeled back and exposed. He is beginning to be perceived as a child, someone who doesn't "filter" what he is saying. He just blurts out whatever he thinks, Catholic or Marxist, doctrine or fabrication, with equal conviction. His puerile running off at the mouth has caused great scandal even among Newchurchers. Take for example, his statement that any Newchurch family having more than one child is "breeding like rabbits." What a thing to say!
Oh, sure, Bergoglio apologized (now Newpopes are apologizing like politicians) for his ridiculous statement defaming rabbits, but why didn't he firme la bouche before he made such an unCatholic and ridiculous statement? Violating former papal prudence, Bergoglio loves to prattle off the cuff with reporters on plane trips, and he invariably puts his foot in his mouth. More and more Newchurchers are wondering what kind of Newseminary education he got. His repertoire includes far more Marxism than Catholicism. Even Neocon, Extraordinarian, and pseudo-traditionalist Newchurchers are getting a belly full of Bergoglio. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic Reporter.]
Meanwhile, Bergoglio has grossly failed to fulfil the two purposes for which the College of Newcardinals elected him in 2013. His Newchurch presbyters, bishops, and cardinals are still sodomizing, raping, and assaulting children. His Newvatican Bank is still filled with correction.
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio is just so much hot air. Far from being "Mr. Humble," his narcissism is all too obvious after less than two years. In a troubled era that rightly asks, "Where's the beef?," Bergoglio instead seems to be chomping on cannabis cookies -- of the Novus Ordo kind!
Francis-Bergoglio's Newvatican is reeling from criticism of a semi-pornographic video posted on Newvatican's web site on January 31, 2015, in connection with a Newvatican "Women's Culture: Equality and Difference" conference to be held February 4-7, 2015. The semi-pornographic video features an Italian sex-pot showgirl and advocates that Newchurch open its doors to women in order that they can offer their skills "in full collaboration and integration [sic]" with men. Given its rampant and continuing sex crimes, first exposed to the public in 2001, Newvatican seems far from having learned its lessons on sex!
The Italian sex-pot asked in the video for women to contribute clips of their lives for Francis-Bergoglio's Council for Culture to oogle at. In connection with the semi-pornographic video, the buxom showgirl defended a "woman's right to choose" plastic surgery -- not to correct a medical condition, but simply to mutilate her body to titillate men (and lesbians?).
The semi-pornographic video came under such scathing criticism that it was almost immediately removed from Newvatican's web site. Nevertheless, Bergoglio's Council on Culture [sic] is going forward with its radical feminization program. It immediately issued a denial that it is working on the ordination of Newchurch priestesses. Newvatican has a record of issuing denials on what is actually the truth. Bergoglio's house newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano, now includes a monthly women's insert as if it wants to be the new Playgirl! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's pandering to enhance his popularity among various special-interest groups -- radical feminists and Mohammedan jihadists among them -- is getting pretty sick. There is really nothing left of his Newchurch of the New Order that is Catholic. Again and again it is exposed as a fraud and a sham.
On Septuagesima Sunday, February 1, 2015, the 49th American Football Superbowl is to be held. Novus Ordo temples and their invalid "New Mess" were deserted, but traditional Catholic churches, oratories, and chapels were as full as on any Sunday of the year. 100,000,000 viewers see the winner of the Superbowl receive the Vincent Thomas Lombardi Championship Trophy, named after Vince Lomardi, the head coach and general manager of the Green Bay Packers football team from 1959 to 1967, during which years the team won five National Football League championships and the first two Superbowls.
What the Superbowl hawkers and semi-nude singer-dancers at half time will not tell you is that to Vince Lombardi, football was a triviality. In life, Lombardi was wont to say: "I derived my strength from Holy Mass and Communion." Born in 1913, Lombardi matured in a stable Catholic family that included (traditional) Catholic education from grade school through his eventual graduation from the (traditional) Jesuit university, Fordham. At the age of 15, Lombardi believed that he had a vocation and entered Cathedral College of the Immaculate Conception in Brooklyn, New York, to undertake the six-year program leading to ordination as a (traditional) Catholic priest. After four years he decided that his state in life was not the priesthood, so he completed his high school education at St. Francis Preparatory school. At Fordham University, he shined in academics. He evenutally moved on to positions of teaching Latin, physics, and chemistry at St. Cecilia High School in Englewood, New Jersey.
Vince Lombardi was a devout (traditional) Catholic not because he thought that he was a Saint, but because he knew that he was a sinner in need of the Holy Mass and Sacraments. He knew that only Christ the King could provide what his soul needed in a turbulent world that offers trials and crosses. Because of God's mercy and Vince Lombardi's perseverance in matters of the (traditional) Catholic Faith, his soul may be resting in Heaven. Because of His lifelong devotion to Our Lord Jesus Christ, His true (traditional) Latin Mass and Sacraments, Lombardi's Purgatory may have ended.
True Catholics, when the Superbowl is over, and the images of the Lombardi Trophy hoisted high by the winning team make their way across the planet, think first of Christ the King, to Whom Vince Lombardi was devoted before all -- certainly before football. Then, pray for all the faithful departed who may not have been champions in the gymnasia and stadia of this world, but were champions in their state of life, giving glory to God for His love and mercy, and laboring for His Kingship. Remember the words of St. Paul in the Epistle of Septuagesima Sunday:
Know you not that they that run in the race, all run indeed, but one receiveth the prize?... And they indeed that they may receive a corruptible crown, but we an incorruptible one (1 Corinthians 9:24-25/DRV).
Indicating that Francis-Bergoglio has been incompetent to extirpate paedophilia from his Newvatican, two of Newpope's subordinates have been caught with child pornography in their possession, demonstrating that Bergoglio's vaunted "zero tolerance" policy on paedophilia is just as phony as his anti-Catholic policies.
In 2014 two of Bergoglio's subordinates were caught by police possessing child-pornography material. One of the two criminals was a former Newarchbishop, who was arrested for having paid for sex with children while he was Bergoglio's ambassador. In addition to the paedophilia charges, managers of Bergoglio's Vatican bank, officially known as the Institute for Works of Religion (IOR), were caught embezzling funds from a basilica. There were also three attempts to deliver illegal drugs into the Vatican by mail from foreign countries, he said without giving details. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
True Catholics, let's face it. Francis-Bergoglio's regime is just as corrupt as that of his predecessors. Paedophilia, embezzlement, and drug-trafficking are going on right under his nose while he plays the anti-Catholic, anti-family "Mr. Humble." All true Catholic should be sick to their stomach when thinking of the Unholy Father who prances around more like an atheistic Marxist operative than a true pope.
It had been appearing more and more as if Francis-Bergoglio got his seminary training in a Marxist cell. Now it appears that he got training in a Mohammedan madrasa as well! On January 26, 2015, he proclaimed: "The Koran and the Holy Bible Are the Same." Once again hawking the notion of "religious tolerance" in a way that has been condemned by the Catholic Church and its popes, Bergoglio prattled on for a hour, proclaiming to a group of visitors to Newrome that the Koran and the teachings contained therein are just as valid as those found in the Holy Bible. "Jesus Christ, Mohammed, Jehovah, Allah" are all the same, he said. Different religions use different names, but we all believe in the same thing. Really? Next we'll be hearing that he has left his Newpapacy to become a terrorist for ISIL!
In December 2014 Bergoglio kissed a Koran, following in the footsteps of his predecessor, the Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla, who had done the same in 1999. In late February 2015 Bergoglio will follow up his syncretism with the Mohammedans, condemned by the Catholic Church and its popes, as the gravest of Moral Sins against the First Commandment of God. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Report.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio cannot claim ignorant of the fact that the Koran he is praising as equivalent to the Holy Bible, contains the following teachings, inter alia:
Slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them. --Surah 9:5Bergoglio has become an open spokesman for evil. It is time that the clueless Newchurchers -- including the Neocons, pseudo-traditionalists, Extraordinarians, and Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPXers -- got a clue and turned their backs on this Judas to Our Lord Jesus Christ and His true Church.
When you meet the unbelievers, strike off their heads, then when you have made wide slaughter among them, bind your captives firmly. --Surah 47:4
And when you meet those who misbelieve, non-Mohammedans, while fighting in Jihad, cut off their heads until you have massacred them, and take them captive. --Surah 47:4
In a move that speaks volumes to confirm Francis-Bergoglio's de facto rejection of the Roman papacy, Bergoglio has decreed that Metropolitan Newarchbishops will no longer receive the pallium, the symbol of their authority, from the Newpope's hand, but in a local ceremony. Formerly, the Newarchbishops received their pallium on the Feast of Sts. Peter & Paul, June 29, from the hand of the Newpope. The pallium is a straight sash of material of almost five centimetres, made of white lamb's wool, shorn on St. Agnes's Day, curved at the center. It rests on the shoulders over the Roman or Gothic chasuble with two black flaps falling in front and behind, so that, seen either from the front or from behind, the vestment reminds one of the letter "Y." It is decorated with six crosses of black silk, one on each end and four on the incurvature, and is decorated in front and on the back, with three pins made of gold and jewels.
Bergoglio's rejection of tradition, which had clearly indicated that the authority of the Metropolian Newarchbishop came from the Newpope, seems to indicate yet another degradition of the office of Newpope -- more along the lines of the Protestant theology that "power comes from the people," not from God. In his decree Bergoglio specifically referred to favoring "participation of the local Church." And what is that Church? Certainly not the Universal Church.
Then Bergoglio let his Modernist cat out of the bag when he said that he believes this non-traditional action can "serve to advance that journey of synodality." In other words, he is specifically relating his move to the Protestant use of synods, adopted by the Newchurch of the New Order, to vote on matters such as the morality of homosexuality, divorce/remarriage, paedophilia, priestesses/bishopesses, etc., just as the Protestants have done and destroyed their Christianity. Bergoglio had already proclaimed on June 26, 2013: Protestant "synodality is the path of the Catholic [sic] Church." His "Extraordinary Synod," held during October 2014, already led to open conflict and acceptance of anti-Catholic and immoral doctrines.
The disappointing news to the Newarchbishops was conveyed in a decree of January 12, 2015. It came on the heels of an earlier directive from Bergoglio that the new Newcardinals that he is going to install in Newrome on St. Valentine's Day 2015 should not have a party (really a reception for family and friends) after their investiture. Apparently, Bergoglio doesn't read the Bible. Even Our Lord Jesus Christ blessed a party in the form of a wedding reception at the beginning of His public ministry, not only by attending the marriage at Cana with His disciples but also by changing water into 750 bottles' worth of wine. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by La Stampa.]
True Catholics, it is amazing how the Newchurch Neocons, pseudo-traditionalists, Extrordinarians, and Neo-SSPXers can remain so clueless about what is going on in their anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order. Clearly, these groups have deliberately blinded themselves to the daily schisms and heresies that are going on in front of them. And they will be pay the price in the end for their sloth in turning a blind eye to the evil in front of them.
