It is becoming clear that the May 21-24, 2015, conference titled "Vatican II, Remembering the Future: Ecumenical, Interfaith and Secular Perspectives on the Council's Impact and Promise" is an important cog in Francis-Bergoglio's efforts to implement a virtual Vatican III and move his Newchurch further away any vestige of Catholicism. To the conference, held in Washington, D.C., Bergoglio sent three of his top spokesmen for the New Order: Newcardinals Luis Tagle, Jean-Luis Tauran, and especially Walter Kasper, who is carrying Bergoglio's water for giving to divorced and remarried Newchurchers the invalid Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid.
On May 24, 2015, Kasper gave the most important address of the conference, in which he said that Francis-Bergoglio essentially wants to go Protestant and let "the people" determine doctrine, as is the case in the heretical Protestant sects, who have now adopted abortive murder, contraception, divorce, priestesses, bishopesses, and many other anti-Christian doctrines. Bergoglio wants to create new doctrines, "to be surprised by God and his spirit," which is directly contrary to dogmatic Apostolic teaching, in which no new doctrine is possible after the death of the last Apostle, St. John. "Oecumenism," says the Marxist Newpope Bergoglio, "oecumenism occurs not in standing still, but in moving on."
Kasper ended his address by quoting from the heretic priest, Karl Rahner. Karl Rahner (1904-1984), a member of the Marxist Newjesuits and a close conspirator with the Modernist Fr. Josef Ratzinger to Protestantize Catholicism, was silenced by Pope John XXIII after having been declared under suspicion of heresy by the Holy Office. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by La Presse.]
True Catholics, to posit his new anti-Christian doctrines, Bergoglio ironically has rejected his predecessor, Benedict-Ratzinger's, vaunted "heremeutic of continuity," to be replaced henceforth by Bergoglio own's "hermeneutic of reform," founded upon the Modernist Vatican II Council's heretically-tinged statement that heretical sects "participate in the whole" of Christianity. It is a testament to their dementia that the Newchurchers haven't already dove off the sinking Barque of Bergoglio to escape the openly anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order.
The Modernist clergy of Newchurch will finally tell the truth if you give them enough rope to hang themselves. The most recent occasion for spilling the beans was one of those indoctrination conferences, this one titled "Vatican II, Remembering the Future: Ecumenical, Interfaith and Secular Perspectives on the Council's Impact and Promise." This conference was not some low-key event, but was attended all the way from Newrome by Francis-Bergoglio's three top Newcardinals. Luis Tagle, President of Caritas Internationalis, a socialist organization whose mission is "to build a better world, especially for the poor and oppressed," a statement right out of Karl Marx. Jean-Luis Tauran, President of Bergoglio's Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue (Oecumenism). And, of course, Walter Kasper, of Bergoglio's Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity (Oecumenism), who is Bergoglio's point man to argue for allowing the anti-Biblical new doctrine of allowing divorced and remarried Newchurchers to receive the invalid Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid.
The event was co-hosted by the New Order's Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., at which blessings are given in the name of Mohammed's god, and by the Protestant Washington National Cathedral. The latter connection reflects that fact that the the Modernist Vatican II Council adhered more to Protestantism than Catholicism. It laid the path for Protestant services (the "Ordinary" Mess and the "Extraordinary" Mess) in place of valid Catholic ones, adopted the heretical Protestant doctrine of "oecumenism" (all gods are the same, all religions are equal), and opened the door to Liberalist Protestant morality: abortive murder, anti-life contraception, and the abomination of "gay marriage." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Reporter.]
To Newchurch clergy, such as Newcardinals Kaspar, Tauran, and Tagle, the true Catholic Faith is, at best, "nostalgia," because the Newchurch sect embraces not Catholicism, but Modernist Marxism and Liberalist Protestantism. At the Newcardinals' conference this fact was admitted with these words:
The typical refrain [from traditional Catholics] that Vatican II was a pastoral council and therefore did not propose new doctrines of the Church is not correct.... Such a perspective tries to downplay the Council's decrees or call Vatican II a sort of "council lite." The 1960s event was pastoral through its doctrinal nature. Vatican II offered a new model of merging between so-called pastoral and doctrinal councils. Vatican II was a pastoral council by its teachings, that is, its doctrines. In a word, Vatican II was pastoral by being doctrinal.
This statement confirms that the Modernist Vatican II Council spouted heresy. In one paragraph, it is admitted, four times, that Vatican II had a "doctrinal" nature because it proposed "new doctrines." There can never be "new doctrines" in the Catholic Faith. Divine Revelation ended with the death of the last Apostle, St. John, around A.D. 100. The dogmatic Council Vatican I (not to be confused with the Modernist Vatican II, if it was a legitimate council at all), quoted the seminal theological statement of St. Vincent of Lerins (ca. 400 - ca. 450), that doctrine is to be understood always according to the same Catholic and Apostolic Tradition "eodem sensu, eademque sententia."
True Catholics, so important was this Vicentian doctrine that "new doctrine" could never be adopted, it became part of the Anti-Modernist Oath, which Pope St. Pius X in 1910 required all priests thenceforth to swear before their ordination. The Newpope Paul VI-Montini abrogated the Anti-Modernist Oath for the New Order sect in the same year (1967) in which he destroyed the Catholic and Apostolic Sacred Canon of the Mass, which thus rendered the Mass in Newchurch invalid, at least two years before the full-blown Novus Ordo Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service was adopted across Newchurch.
On Pentecost Sunday, May 24, 2015, when the Apostles were challenged to stand up courageously for the Faith rather than cower in fear, as they had been doing, Newchurch Primate Diarmuid Martin, who suffered a stunning defeat at the polls in Ireland's May 22, 2015, "gay marriage" referendum, tried to keep a stiff upper lip, but failed. 62 per cent of the once-Catholic Irish, who didn't really care much about "gay marriage," certainly intended to give Martin and his principal, Francis-Bergoglio, and their immoral Newchurch of the New Order the shaft.
Martin cluelessly announced on Pentecost that Newchurch needed a "new language to connect to people." Well, Diarmuid, Irishmen understand plain English, even if you don't. They are tired of you and your paedophiliac Newpopes "doing" children, while you and Francis-Bergoglio stand by and watch. They are tired of empty words that are meant only to deceive. They proclaim as their motto: "Facta, non verba!"
Martin went on to admit that Newchurch is essentially dead, stating:
Martin, Bergoglio, and their Newchurch of the New Order are not all that concerned about "gay marriage." What they are concerned about is power and control. It was that same power and control that permitted Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters to assault children. All Newchurch leaders, like JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio, did was to facilitate the cover-up of such crimes by a lying complicity. Evil does receive its payback, even in this world, if not in the next. A chilling apparition of the First "Paedophile" Newpope, JPII-Wojtyla, suffering in the flames of Hell was already been observed by many on April 2, 2005, the second anniversary of "Unsaint"'s death.
Newchurch's dominoes will continue to fall. The next referendum will be on the prohibition of abortion. The Deputy Prime Minister has already announced: "We will be seeking, on behalf of women, to repeal the eighth amendment [prohibiting abortion]." So, once-Catholic Ireland, now pagan because of the moral corruption of Newchurch clergy, will shortly approved a second of the Four Sins that Cry out to Heaven for Justice: murder. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Agence France-Press.]
True Catholics, as an example of just how Newchurchers around the world have become, the U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, who never tires to proclaim himself a "Catholic" for political purposes, sent a message of congratulations to Ireland for approving sodomy. Biden also favors abortive murder. The abomination of "gay marriage" remains illegal in such countries as Great Britain, Australia, and Germany -- but how long, given Francis-Bergoglio's voice for perverted anti-Catholic morals?
Maybe just a little of the wisdom of the Church's Principal Theologian, St. Thomas Aquinas, remains in his Order, the Dominicans, now taken over by the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order. As Mohammedan Jihadists were taking over by violence the ancient city of Mepsila (now called Mosul in modern Iraq), famous since its mention by the Greek historian Xenophon during the famous anabasis of 401 B.C., as modern bullets were whizzing overhead and a black ISIL flag was waving over the city, Friar Michael struggled to carry six heavy boxes of historical Christian documents to safety from the ISIL terrorists, who were destroying priceless artefacts and documents in museums and libraries in their rampage across Iraq and Syria.
Fortunately, Friar Michael spurned the policy of his purported "vicar," Francis-Bergoglio, who plays the wimp to the infidel Mohammedan terrorists. No, Friar Michael defiantly proclaimed: "It was imperative that these manuscripts, conserved in the Dominican library in Mosul and then in Qaraqosh, escape the systematic destruction of the non-Muslim cultural heritage." The friar's courage and foresight succeeded in preserving the pre-seventh century Christian historical and philosophic texts, music, and literature from before the "prophet" Mohammed existed, which thus became a target of the barbarian Jihadists. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Agence France-Presse.]
True Catholics, sometimes even Newchurchers are moved to do what is right, in spite of the immoral preachings of their Newpopes. It may be that, for the good of Christian civilization, St. Thomas Aquinas moved his Dominican descendant, howsoever removed he was from the true Church, to do the right thing. Unfortunately, this is too rare an occurrence in the Newchurch of the New Order under its Philistine anti-Catholic Newpopes.
The overwhelming majority by which "gay marriage" passed in Ireland's May 22, 2015's referendum cannot be explained by a so precipitous a decline in people's moral thinking since the establishment of the Newchurch of the New Order in the 1965. Rather, it is most easily interpreted as the Irish people wanting to give a death blow to the Newchurch of the New Order and the three "Paedophile" Newpopes who have headed it since 1978: Francis-Bergoglio, Benedict-Ratzinger, and the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla.
The upper and lower clergy of these three Paedophile Newpopes have for decades been assaulting Irish children in the most vile ways. So hostile did Ireland become to the predations of the Newchurch clergy that the Prime Minister told Benedict-Ratzinger not to come to Ireland because his safety could not be guaranteed. Even the Newarchbishop of Dublin, Diarmuid Martin, declined to teach his people about this one of Four Sins that Cry out to Heaven for Justice, singled out in the Holy Bible.
And how is the still-perverted Newchurch of the New Order under Francis-Bergoglio responding to this moral issue, perhaps the greatest moral issue of our day, in view of the fact that sodomy is one of the Four Sins that Cry out to Heaven for Justice? This man, who claims to be the "vicar" of Christ, actually gave his Newpapal "blessing" to the sin of sodomy by publicly "con"-celebrating the invalid New Order Mess with the well-known "gay" activist radical presbyter Michele di Paolis in the Newpapal chapel. Di Paolis couldn't even be bothered to wear a cassock and surplice, but instead sported a sweater and a bishop's pectoral cross, even though he is not a Newbishop.
Presbyter di Paolis rejects Christian morality, pontificating: "Homosexual love is a gift from God no less than heterosexual." That is outright blasphemy. To claim that God is the author of evil is blasphemy, pure and simple, a damnable sin against the First Commandment. Moreover, after the Mess, Francis-Bergoglio bowed low to the heretical presbyter and kissed his hand as if he were the Newpope instead of Bergoglio! Di Paolis is described as a promoter of the "anarcho-Catholicism" of the extreme left, which has been dominant since the 1970s in Newhurch in Italy, as well as in the South American Newchurch. Bergoglio hails from the anarchic, atheistic Marxist South American Newchurch.
Not to be outdone in immorality, Newcardinal Vicent Nichols, of Westminster, England, rushed over to London's "gay" Newparish to simulate the invalid New Order Mess with the Newparish's congregation, which is composed of unrepentant sodomists. Meanwhile, Francis-Bergoglio's newly-appointed Consultor for Justice and Peace, presbyter Timothy Radcliffe, also a homophiliac heretic, claims that "gay sex" is an expression of "God's self-gift."
It has been reported that "gay marriage" advocates have the ultimate goal of "wiping out the Christian religion." But, let's be honest. It is not only the "gays" (and don't forget the Lesbians, bisexuals, transsexuals) who are trying to destroy the Christian Church -- it is the Newpopes themselves, especially Francis-Bergoglio, and their Newchurch clergy as well. Bergoglio only encourages them (remember: "who am I to judge?") while he pontificates on science, of which he is as ignorant as a flat-earther, and on economics, while his own Vatican Bank is run by the Mafia. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LSN.]
True Catholics, Newchurch and its current leader, Francis-Bergoglio, is the same "sewer of blood and filth" that the Catholic poet Dante Alighieri called the corrupt pope of his day. The leadership of Newchurch is truly perverted. How anyone can be a Newchurch member and still call himself a Christian, let alone a Catholic? How daft these Newchurchers be!
All our inside sources at the Neo-SSPX indicate that Fellay has had "psychological problems" since his years at the seminary. He had few if any friends, had a dour personality, and was an egotist. Nothing has changed now that he has become Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX and has transformed Archbishop Lefebvre's original traditional Catholic organization into a doppelganger for the Newchurch of the New Order. In particular, his hatred of the SSPX's former senior bishop, Richard Williamson, burns continuously. Williamson is one of the few people who has had the courage to stand up to Fellay and call him out for his treachery to the Archbishop and his traditional Catholic principles.
Fellay's malefaction extends even to impiety. Even the Neo-SSPX world was shocked when, on May 14, Fellay's Prior of Southern France, Renaud de la Motte, at Fellay's order refused Communion to an 87-year-old lady, whose only "sin" was to invite Bishop Williamson for tea. It makes to difference that the lady had funded Fellay's organization for many decades. Fellay's ire against Williamson brooks no exception to his dictatorship, so off with the lady's head!
And why has Fellay reacted in this unCatholic, unChristian way? Our inside sources reveal that Fellay is shaking in his bootstraps because of the ascendency of the Traditional Resistance around the world, which numbers over one hundred former Neo-SSPX priests who have abandoned Fellay because of his pro-New Order policy. As the Traditional Resistance, which regards Bishop Williamson as a kind of counsellor, announces more and more Traditional Latin Mass sites around the world, even more priests, like Prior de la Motte, have been abandoning Fellay. This number of includes, most recently, 20 per cent of his British clergy, including the highly-respected Prior of Great Britain, Ireland, and Scandinavia, Fr. Paul Morgan.
Fellay ordered his Prior de la Motte to tell the elderly lady that she should go to the New Order Fraternity of St. Peter organization and called the once-SSPX supporter a vixen. The prior was so morally troubled by Fellay's vicious and impious behavior toward the elderly lady that he too joined the list of some 100 other priests who have abandoned Fellay.
True Catholics, this story has been replayed over and over in Fellay's Neo-SSPX organization. Devoted laypeople have been defamed, slandered, extorted into obedience, and finally expelled if they do not get into lock-step with Fellay's New Order-bent doctrine. Some former SSPX members have gotten so fed up with Fellay's dictatorship of the once Lefebvran organization that they have instituted a lawsuit against Fellay. Fellay's treason against his Archbishop almost ranks with Francis-Bergoglio's treason against the One whose "vicar" he claims to be: Jesus Christ.
Newcardinal George Pell, once the Newprimate of Australia and now Francis-Bergoglio's Prefect of Finance, in a May 21, 2015, media statement denied that he was an accessory after the fact in the case of a child victim of one of his paedophile presbyters by attempting to bribe the victim later to keep silent about the crime. Pell claimed in his statement that it was a "misunderstanding." The victims have demanded that Pell return to Australia to answer the charges before the Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, convoked to investigate widespread and horrifying crimes against children perpetrated by Newchurch clergy.
The Commission has heard harrowing allegations of sexual assaults against children that occurred in Newchurch places of worship, orphanages, community groups, and schools. It heard that every male child aged between 10 and 16 at the St. Alipius Primary School was molested by paedophile presbyters. 12 of the 33 pupils later committed suicide. Another victim described "horror rooms" at the St. Joseph's Home orphanage, at which children were strapped down and sodomized from the age of five, with the assistance of the Newchurch "nuns," who pulled out the childrens' teeth. Pell, when informed of such cases, was described by one of the victims' parents as "dismissive." To all the charges, Pell responded: "I don't remember anything."
Pell was implicated in the May 20, 2015, testimony before the Royal Commission by the victim, who told Pell, a family friend, in 1993 about a presbyter's sexual assault upon him when he was 11 years of age. The victim accused Pell of asking what it would cost to buy the victim's silence and then proceeded to play the well-known Newchurch "transfer game," by moving the paedophile presbyter to other Newparishes where he was not known. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Victoria, Australia News.]
True Catholics, Newchurch is once again proven to be a "brood of vipers" (Matthew 3:7/DRV). The "Paedophile" Newpopes JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, Francis-Bergoglio, and their top officials all have been exposed as having their hands filthy with complicity in the rape, sodomy, and child sexual assault. Aside from some self-serving words to the press, they don't really seem to care. The ancient Romans used to sew the worst criminals up in a sack (culleus) and dump them to drown in the Tiber River. Such an end is too good for these despicable Newpopes and their minions!
It beggars reason why the Newpopes have played the sycophants to the infidel Mohammedans. We have seen again how the Mohammedan Jihadists are virulent barbarians, who think nothing about destroying some of the world's greatest antiquities. That fact should be no surprise, when a Mohammedan caliph is said to have destroyed in A.D. 642 the great Library of Alexandria, repository of the world's knowledge since the third century B.C., saying that no knowledge was needed other than that contained in the Koran.
By May 21, 2015, the ISIL Jihadists had captured the ancient Syrian city of Palmyra, designated a World Heritage Site because it "stood at the crossroads of several civilizations," with its art and architecture mixing Greek, Roman and Persian influences. Its Roman theaters, colonnades, and temples, poised on one of the most important trade routes of the world at the time, are prized antiquities. In the past the Mohammedan Jihadists have destroyed such sites.
The Romans took possession of Palmyra in A.D. 106, and protected it with their garrisons. In 129 the Roman emperor Hadrian visited Palmyra on his world tour and granted it the status of a free city. In the 270s the Palmyrene Queen Zenobia revolted against Rome and was put down by the Roman emperor Aurelian.
True Catholics, Palmyra became Christian in the fourth century. It is situated only about 200 kilometres northeast of Damascus, where St. Paul miraculously received his conversion to Christianity and his mission as the Apostle to the Gentiles, the even so vividly described by St. Luke in the New Testament's Acts of the Apostles. The popes are supposed to be custodians of the Christian heritage, but Bergoglio hasn't raised a peep.
No Newpope has done this before: prophesied his own imminent death. Yet Francis-Bergoglio has done this three times already. Most recently, on May 19, 2015, Bergoglio devoted his "homily" to his musings on his own death.
"We only say "Addio" at a time of final farewells, be they of this life or be they our final farewell," he said. Bergoglio then went on to speak about his own "final farewell". He mused: "What will I leave behind?" [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Vatican Radio.]
True Catholics, you can easily answer that question, just as Christ the Judge will of his purported "vicar." And we know from Scripture and Tradition that Christ's judgment of popes will be far more severe than that of ordinary people because popes have more opportunity for damaging the Faith. Francis-Bergoglio will leave behind a Newchurch that is far more corrupt, far more immoral, far more steeped in heretical doctrine, far more confirmed in an invalid "Mess" than when he took office. It is shocking how much damage the "Marxist" Newpope has done in just two years. Rightly does Bergoglio fear The Judgment!
In an open letter to the Irish Times, a Novus Ordo presbyter of the Newredemptorist Order blessed the upcoming national referendum on whether same-sex "marriage" should be legalized in Ireland. For further information, click on VOTE: Ireland's Vote on Same-Sex "Marriage" in the TRADITIO Network's Special Features (Articles, Reviews, Sermon Series, Other) department.
Pity, if you will, the Extraordinarians, those who put their faith not in God, but in the corrupt "princes" of Newchurch against the clear advice of Sacred Scripture: "It is good to confide in the Lord, rather than to have confidence in man. It is good to trust in the Lord, rather than to trust in princes" (Psalms 117:8/V).
In accordance with Francis-Bergoglio's desire to shut down the "Extraordinary" Mess, Newbishop Richard Lynch of St. Petersburg, Florida, has shut down both current Messes and provided for only one at an entirely different location, which is run by Vietnamese Newchurchers. It didn't matter that the two former Messes had existed for several years. Lynch's antagonistic letter of closure, dated April 20, 2015, makes it clear that if the Vietnamese don't like it, this remaining Mess will also be shut down. Moreover, Lynch has decreed that the "Extraordinary" Mess must be performed on the existing free-standing Novus Ordo dinner table and that the "communion" rail must be removed, Novus Ordo style, because the Vietnamese Novus Ordo community uses the invalid "Ordinary Form."
The first thing that needs to be pointed out again is that this invalid Mess is most certainly not the Traditional Latin Mass. It is the Half New Order Vatican II Mess of 1962+. It is a common ploy on the part of Newchurch to shut down such "Extraordinary" Messes by moving them around periodically, so that the "Extraordinary" Newchurchers remain always in turmoil. Lynch has added a novel twist: the "Extraordinarians" of Tampa will now have to kowtow to the Vietnamese to keep their Mess. The new location is a very small Newparish, 98 per cent smaller that the previous ones. The safe bet, therefore, is on Lynch shutting down the "Extraordinarians" completely in a few months.
True Catholics, it is clear that Benedict-Ratzinger's Motu Proprio Summmorum Pontificum of 2007 is already not worth the parchment upon which it was written. It is rapidly dying, just as we TRADITIO Fathers predicted that it would. Francis-Bergoglio hates it and would shut it down overnight if he could do so diplomatically. Instead, he has decreed a not-so-slow death for it. What fools these Newchurchers be, who placed their trust in the spurious New Order bishops!
For the first time in history at Newvatican a Protestant heretic archbishopess was officially received by a Newpope. Francis-Bergoglio took this step on May 11, 2015, toward the eventual installation of women as presbyters and bishopesses in Newchurch, when he received in a Newpapal audience at the Apostolic Palace Her Gracelessness Antje Jackel, Lutheran archbishopess of Sweden, whom Bergoglio called his "esteemed sister." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Huffington Post.]
True Catholics, although the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio is not ready himself to take the step of installing priestesses and bishopesses in his regime, he is keeping the door open for future Newpopes to dump the Catholic and Apostolic teaching against such an abomination rejected uniformly by the Old Testament Jews, the Eastern Orthodox, the Eastern Uniates, and the Roman Catholics. The only Christian sect that pretends to play with priestesses and bishopesses are certain wacky Modernist/Liberalist heretical Protestant sects.
At this point Francis-Bergoglio should rightly rue the day that he decided to leave the religious sphere and wade into the muck of secular politics. Imprudently, Bergoglio announced that he would release an Encyclical Letter on "global warming." Now, according to the Italian weekly L'Espresso, Bergoglio has postponed the encyclical's release because his top Newprelates are warring about its contents. On May 14, 2015, Bergoglio's press spokesman, who used to say that the encyclical would be released in June 2015, now says that their is "no precise date" for its release. The nearly-complete draft already started undergoing review in March 2015.
L'Espresso revealed that the draft, authored by Newarchbishop Victor Manuel Fernandez, Bergoglio's ghostwriter, was being "trashed" by Newcardinal Gerhard Muller and his Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith. Mueller has reportedly criticized the erroneous doctrine contained in the draft and has derailed its publication.
Bergoglio is in a pickle because he wants the encyclical to be released before his theatrical debut at the United Nations in September 2015 and his "Global Warming" Conference in December 2015. Bergoglio's "Global Warming" Workshop in April 2015 already went awry when pro-life and pro-family groups criticized Bergoglio for including as participants pro-abortion and population-control extremists.
True Catholics, while Francis-Bergoglio treats "Global Warming" like a Demi-goddess of nature, it seems that God is casting down Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order into oblivion. A study released on May 12, 2015, by the respected Pew Research Center in the United States showed a 41 per cent drop in membership in Bergoglio's Newchurch in just the last seven years.
According to the respected Pew Research Center, in just seven years under Benedict-Ratzinger and Francis-Bergoglio, the number of Newchurchers in the United States has fallen from 23.9 per cent in 2007 to 20.8 per cent in 2014. Under the Newpopes, for the first time, the unaffiliated outnumber Newchurchers.
According to the study, released May 12, 2015, nearly one-third of U.S. adults (31.7 per cent) say that they were raised Catholic or Newchurch. Among that group, fully 41 per cent no longer identify with Catholicism, now become Newchurchism. This means that 12.9 per cent of U.S. adults are former Catholics/Newchurchers, while just two per cent of U.S. adults have converted to Newchurch from another religion. No other religious group in the study had such a lopsided ratio of losses to gains.
The report said the number of people who define themselves as religiously unaffiliated increased from 16 per cent in 2007 to 23 per cent in 2014, thus outnumbering Newchurchers by almost three percentage points. Of the Newchurch numbers, fifteen per cent were not born in the U.S., but were from other countries. More astonishing is the statistic that Newchurch's pandering to youth with "Rock Messes" and watered-down morality hasn't worked. The percentage of youth in Newchurch dropped seven percentage points in seven years. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Service.]
True Catholics, now the statistics back us up: it would have been better for the true Faith if Newchurch, together with its incompetent and corrupt Newprelates, right on up to the Newpopes, had never been born! The fact is that Benedict-Ratzinger and Francis-Bergoglio have been devastating to Newchurch -- and that isn't even speaking of the Catholic Church! Time is long past to throw these poor excuses even for Newpopes into the Tiber River, throw out all Newchurch officials, and restore the Catholic Church from the seed of the martyrs, that is, non-Newchurch traditional Catholic bishops, priests, religious, and laypeople.
Traditional Catholic priest, Fr. Malachi Martin (1921-1999), Newvatican's most informed author and critic, hit the nail on the head. Now, 16 years after his death in 1999, Fr. Martin's contention that the Jesuits' "Liberation Theology," pushed at the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965) and supported later by Newpopes Benedict-Ratzinger and Francis-Bergoglio, has been proven to be a product of the atheistic Communist Soviet Secret Police, the KGB.
The noted Fr. Malachi Martin, advisor to popes, who was once a (traditional) Jesuit himself, became so outraged when the Newjesuit Order embraced the violent "Liberation Theology," developed by, inter alios, the excommunicate theologian, Hans Kung, beloved of Benedict-Ratzinger, that Martin demanded of Paul VI-Montini to be released from the Order. Even Montini had become so disgusted with the Jesuits by that time that he banned them from his Newatican. Fr. Martin then became a noted traditional Catholic author and speaker condemning the Newjesuits and Newchurch, writing 17 best-selling books, including The Jesuits, which exposed the fact that Newvatican, no longer Catholic, had become a pawn of the atheistic Communists.
Now Fr. Martin's contention that Communist spies were rife in Newvatican around Vatican II and that "Liberation Theology" was a Communist creation have been confirmed by one of the highest authorities possible. Ion Mihai Pacepa, the three-star general for Communist Romania's Secret Police before defecting to the United States in the late 1970s has stated in an interview on May 1, 2015, to the Catholic News Agency that the Soviet secret police created liberation theology. "The movement was born in the KGB, and it had a KGB-invented name: "Liberation Theology." Pacepa went on:
The birth of Liberation Theology was the intent of a 1960 super-secret 'Party-State Dezinformatsiya [Disinformation] Program' approved by Aleksandr Shelepin, the chairman of the KGB, and by Politburo member Aleksey Kirichenko, who coordinated the Communist Party's international policies. I learned the fine points of the KGB involvement with Liberation Theology from Soviet General Aleksandr Sakharovsky, Communist Romania's chief razvedka (foreign intelligence) adviser -- and my de facto boss, until 1956, when he became head of the Soviet espionage service, the PGU1, a position he held for an unprecedented record of 15 years.
The murderous Newjesuit "Liberation Theology" led Newjesuits to take up shotguns to fight conservative governments in Latin America to implement their version of "social and economic justice," in which Communists were placed in charge of those governments. Newvatican's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith had formerly declared that Liberation Theology as (atheist) Marxist. Because Pope Pius XII had decreed in 1949 that Marxists/Communist were automatically excommunicated, it could be argued that most of the Jesuit Order had become excommunicate at the time of the Vatican II Council.
The former Hitlerjungend member, Benedict-Ratzinger, supported "Liberation Theology" (no "traditionalist" he!), and his bosom-buddy was Hans Kung, who was suspended for heresy from his professorship and who later excommunicated himself by becoming a Freemason. Now the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio has has solepsistically declared his murderous Newjesuit Order to be a "civic and humanitarian group."
True Catholics, it will be no surprise to you that the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio has now elevated the once-condemned Marxist firebrand, Gustavo Gutierrez, a fellow Latin American, who used the New Religion of Newchurch as an instrument of murderous revolution, to be the key speaker at his Newpapal Theological Conference, to be held the week of May 10, 2015. It used to be said in Apostolic times: See how these Christians love one another. Now, Bergoglio has turned that characterization into the anti-Christian: See how these atheistic Marxists love one another!
Francis-Bergoglio, the Marxist Newpope, has transformed his Newchurch of the New Order into a political institution, no longer a religious institution. And what has the Marxist Newpope designated to be the hallmark of his regime? Restoring Catholic morality? No. Restoring Catholic doctrine? No. Restoring the true and valid Traditional Latin Mass? No. He wants to be known for his intervention in "global warming," which is far less science than politics. Warming or cooling, anthropogenic or theogenic -- who will ever know for sure, because politics, from the United Nations down, has been skewing, even (and this has been documented) falsifying the meteorological data?
Like a good Marxist/Communist, Newpope is tagging his bugaboo of "capitalism" as responsible. Bergoglio is mounting a deception campaign, fully funded by the collection-plate of the Newchurch of the New Order, to convince the world that it is "capitalism" that is responsible for "global warming." In fact, it is the extreme political "environmentalists" themselves, like Bergoglio, who are making plenty of money off "global warming."
On February 12, 2015, Francis-Bergoglio sent out his closest advisor, the Coordinator of his Cardinalatial Executive Committee, which runs Newchurch, to castigate conservatives in Newchurch, particularly in the United States, who have criticized Bergoglio's planned encyclical letter on "global warming." Newcardinal Andres Rodriguez Mariadiaga, of Honduras, proclaimed: "The ideology surrounding environmental issues is too tied to a capitalism that doesn't want to stop ruining the environment because they don't want to give up their profits." Spoken like a true Marxist/Communist! To Bergoglio and Mariadiaga, true science, just like true religion, is a "vast right wing conspiracy."
Francis-Bergoglio and Mariadiaga have appropriated the work of Caritas Internationalis into the "global warming" political crusade. By its title you would think that this Newchurch organization is does international charitable work. Probably that's what its donors think too, but obviously it has become just another pawn of Marxist in Bergoglio's Newchurch.
True Catholics, before the world's eyes Francis-Bergoglio is becoming a pagan God of Weather, who knows better than the Lord God of Nature how to control the universe. That's quite a portfolio for one who claims to be only a servant of that Lord God and who also claims to be "Mr. Humble"! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by The Hill.]
After Raul Castro, the dictator of Cuba, met with Francis-Bergoglio on May 10, 2015, the excommunicated Communist says that he will be make appearances at (invalid) New Order Messes. It's all unofficial/official, you see. Bergoglio issues no documents. He just issues words, and Catholic and Apostolic doctrine is reversed ad nutum Neo-pontificis. Sure, it's okay to be a homosexual sodomite. No, it's not okay to have more than one child, or you're breeding like a rabbit. Yes, atheists are better than Newchurchers. And, oh, we've given up missionaries for conversion to the Faith, but we'll appoint them to wave a magic wand to "reconcile" unrepentant abortionists. (Newchurch renounced the Sacrament of Penance in 1973.)
Although Raul Castro was baptized as a Catholic when Cuba was (traditional) Catholic in 1931, later he became a member of the Communist party and thus was automatically excommunicated by decree of Pope Pius XII in 1949. The Church's activities in Cuba were suppressed in 1959 after the Communist Revolution led by Raul's brother, Fidel Castro. Bergoglio, who is widely reputed to be a Marxist, is going to play cozy with the dictator and give the Newpapal "imprimatur" to Communist Cuba. Castro admitted that "the Cuban Communist Party ... doesn't allow [religious] believers."
True Catholics, Newchurch has certainly turned to the dark side, to support atheistic Communists, whom Pope Pius XII placed under excommunication. Newpopes seem attracted to Communism like demented flies to the flame. The "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla and the former member of the Hitlerjungend, Benedict-Ratzinger, also schmoozed with Communist Cuban leaders on the imprisoned island. Is Newchurch Catholic? The answer to that question is clearly no. In reality, Newchurch is Marxist, now led by a Marxist Newpope. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX has been building a new "prison seminary" in Virginia in the United States. The architecture bears an uncanny resemblance to San Quentin State Prison in California, which comes with its own execution chamber. Moreover, Fellay is placing exorbitant monetary demands on Neo-SSPXers to fund his new fantasy project, when Archbishop Lefebvre's traditional seminary in Winona, Minnesota, should be more than enough to indoctrinate Fellay's priest-presbyters.
Fellay's prison seminary project is just another one of those unnecessary "Taj Mahals," like those that the Newchurch pseudo-traditional Fraternity of St. Peter used to build. And look at where the FSSP is now -- in stagnation for more than a decade, in spite of the Benedict-Ratzinger "Motu" of 2007 for the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II "Mess of 1962+."
At least you can say that the architecture of Fellay's new prison seminary well represents Fellay's training policy: lock up seminarians for ten years or more, give them no free will, and if they show any initiative, expel them! Fellay's Neo-SSPX is bleeding priest-presbyters so fast that he surely does need new blood to replace them, but after his continuing attempts to sell out his Neo-SSPX to the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order, the number of men who might desire a traditional seminary would certainly not be attracted to Fellay's New Order-bent, pseudo-traditional prison.
The former senior bishop of the SSPX, Richard Williamson -- who should know, because he was the rector of the Winona seminary -- wrote in his May 9, 2015, bulletin:
The handful of U.S. seminarians whom I have met with are being malformed, lost in justifying everything, even the 'good' found in Vatican II. Blind obedience is the drum they march to.... Yet [Neo-]SSPX Priors indiscriminately permit attendance at 'Masses' of the [Newchurch] Fraternity of St. Peter.... A newly-ordained [Neo-SSPX] priest was sent to attend the installation of a local Novus Ordo bishop. Overall, there is no fight against the errors of Vatican II, nor against the errors of the [Neo-SSPX] Society's own Doctrinal Declaration of 2012.
True Catholics, it is at best sheer foolishness and profligacy to waste money on such fantasies, when they is not needed. It seems that when religious leaders go south doctrinally, they often want to build a monument to their aberrancy. We have not heard yet what the new "prison seminary" is to be called. Perhaps Vincula Bernardi - "Bernie's Chains"!?
Forget Nostradamus. Forget Malachi. Just read the Daily Commentaries of the TRADITIO Fathers. Didn't we predict that Francis-Bergoglio would eventually approve of abortions as he already had of homosexual sodomy and paedophilia? Now Bergoglio has de facto approved of abortion, using his phony New Order "Year of Mercy" as an excuse for this unbelievably anti-Catholic and gross immorality. One thing that you can say about Francis-Bergoglio: his morals stink of the pig-stye. Sorry, we have to apologize to pigs: pigs have more morals.
Bergoglio announced on May 7, 2015, that he is sending so-called "missionaries of mercy" to "absolve" abortionists and aborted women and abortion doctors and abortion nurses from the most grave sin of abortion, one of the Four Sins that Cry out to Heaven for Retribution. Nor is Bergoglio even asking for repentance. The millions and millions of dead babies must be shrieking from the trash-heap for Heaven to consign this Newpope to perdition.
In effect, Bergoglio has reverted to the worst perversion of Church doctrine, perpetrated by the Renaissance Church, in which "indulgences" could be bought. Of course, all of this is a scam. Newchurch did away with the Sacrament of Penance in 1973 and substituted for it an invalid "Rite of Reconciliation." Thus, Newchurch has no power to "absolve" even anything. Nevertheless, Newchurchers will be led to believe that they get a free ride for abortions between December 8, 2015, and November 20, 2016. Bergoglio's abomination will lead may souls to Hell.
Newvatican officials on May 7, 2015, had to walk a tightrope, trying to explain how what Bergoglio did was even Catholic (it isn't, of course). Even Bergoglio's personal spokesman, Federico Lombardi, admitted that Bergoglio's action will "cause confusion." Once again, the anti-Catholic actions of this Marxist Newpope are being excused as being "pastoral, not doctrinal." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the London Times.
True Catholics, you will remember that this is the same "pastoral" fraud was exposed as the vehicle for perpetrating perpetrate to destroy Catholicism in the "institutional" Newchurch of the New Order, which replaced the "institutional" Church after the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965). You will remember the line: "We're not changing the Catholic Mass, we're not changing Catholic doctrine, we're not changing Catholic morals. We're just more 'pastoral.'" And what was the result? The Catholic Mass has been destroyed in the Newchurch of the New Order and replaced with an invalid Protestantized service. Catholic doctrine has been destroyed in Newchurch to the point that dogs are given Newchurch "funerals. Catholic morals have been destroyed in Newchurch to the point that Newpopes, Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters are all mired in paedophilia, complicity in paedophilia, homosexual sodomy, and now complicity in abortion.
Francis-Bergoglio's right-hand man, Sean O'Malley, Newcardinal of Boston, Massachusetts, went to court during the week of May 4, 2015, to eject once and for all the Newparishioners who had been keeping vigil for eleven years to prevent their church, St. Frances Xavier Cabrini, of Scituate, from being closed in the wholesale shutdowns that Newchurch decreed in 2004. 100 Newparishioners have taken turns holding vigil in the church, night and day, since Newchurch decreed its closing. But now O'Malley, who runs Francis-Bergoglio's Sex Crimes Advisory Committee, has run out of patience. He wants to evict his Newparishoners and destroy the church.
St. Frances Cabrini wasn't alone: Newchurch decreed the closure of 75 of 300 Newchurches. Newchurch cited as justification declining attendance at the New Order, too few presbyters (many of them were too busy raping and sodomizing children to attend to Newchurch business), and financial problems occasioned by having to pay recompense to a hundreds of sexually-assaulted children.
Originally, Newparishioners from nine of the 75 churches held vigils to prevent their closure, but now, eleven years later, Newparishioners from eight of the nine churches have given up and turned over their churches to the wrecking-ball. Only St. Frances Cabrini is the last vigil still going. O'Malley is desperate to sell off St. Frances Cabrini, a prime ocean-side property, for a lucrative sum to secular developers. The Newparishioners have even offered to buy the church, but O'Malley will have nothing of it. Shut it down!, decrees O'Malley, acting in concert with Bergoglio, who has rejected all the Newparishioners' appeals. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by National Public Radio.]
True Catholics, it's too bad that it's not a Catholic church that these Newchurchers are fighting for. They have invested their souls into a building, not the Catholic Faith. Even if they win, they've lost: they'll keep their invalid, anti-Catholic New Order Mess, their invalid, anti-Catholic Sacraments, their false anti-Catholic doctrine and morality. They have ignored the Catholic and Apostolic counsel of St. Athanasius, Bishop, Confessor & Doctor of the Church, given the title "Defensor Fidei" (Defender of the Faith), who, in his famous Letter to His Flock, told the Catholics of his time, brutally ejected by the Arian-heretic leaders in the Church at the time (including the pope, so history records), from their churches:
Who has lost and who has won in the struggle -- the one who keeps the buildings or the one who keeps the Faith? The true Faith, obviously. That therefore the [traditional] ordinances that have been preserved in the churches from ancient time until now may not be lost in our days,... rouse yourselves, brethren,... seeing them now seized upon by heretics.
A ridiculous, theology-challenged Newchurch bishop has approved a funeral for a dog. There it was: the dead corpus of a dog, known as Miss Chiwa, lying in state before the Novus Ordo dinner table at St. Victor d'Auvelais near Brussels, Belgium. The Chihuahua was given a "prayer service" (Novus Ordo Mess?), though the animal had no rational soul. The Newbishop may as well have approved a "Black Mass" of Satan, for all the sense this event made.
When the absurdity Newbishop Remy Vancottem, of Namur, Belgium, gained publicity, Vancottem tried to slither out (perhaps snakes too have souls in Newchurch?) of the absurdity by claiming that the Novus Ordo funeral was not a "Catholic funeral." That's for sure! It was held in an anti-Catholic Novus Ordo temple, with the corpse of the dog lying in state on a bier before the altar, with the service presided over by a Novus Ordo presbyter. Nothing Catholic about that! Much of the Newchurch congregation went to the dogs as well. In fact, there were more dogs in the Novus Ordo temple that day than human Newchurchers! Perhaps there were bowls of holy water put down for the canines to imbibe! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Catholic Herald.]
The question is sometimes asked whether animals have souls. The English word soul is confusing, so we will use the more accurate Latin. The answer is that animals have an animus, (an animate "soul," or life force, but not an anima, a rational "soul." Only human beings have a rational "soul." It is this to which the verse in Genesis (1:27/DRV) refers: "And God created man to his own image: to the image of God he created him." Thus, there is no "Heaven" for animals. Their lifetime is expended upon this earth, and their animus ends with their death; they cannot merit heaven because they are without moral reason. This is the way God created them.
True Catholics, let us enjoy God's animal creation in this world, as He intended, and be good and kind custodians of these animals that He created for our use, but let us not romanticize animals in a way that demeans God's overall purpose: that man, not dog, merit beatitude in Heaven.
We know from the numerous reports that Newchurch presbyters and Newbishops are just as deep into the Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust as before. It has just been pushed father underground. But now some creative Newchurch prelate, bereft for fifty years of the graces from a valid Mass and Sacraments, have expanded their activities into another area: drugs and pornography. And he's not the only one.
Newmonsignor Kevin Wallin, nicknamed "Monsignor Meth," pled guilty in United States federal court in 2013, for dealing kilograms of methamphetamine and buying a sex shop to launder his drug earnings. In the end, he sold the drugs to undercover federal agents, and the jig was up. The Newchurch prelate, whose demeanor was described as "ebullient," is ebullient no longer. On May 7, 2015, Wallin was sentenced to five years and five months in the state's gray-bar hotel to do penance. At that, he got off lightly. Even the corrupt former Newcardinal of New York, Edward Egan, before his death in March 2015, had gaven the Newmonsignor drug dealer a glowing letter of recommendation for a lenient sentence. Newchurch remains the same "brood of vipers" (Matthew 3:7/DRV) under Francis-Bergoglio just as it has always been.
Wallin, who pastored St. Augustine Newcathedral in Waterbury, Connecticut, and served as Episcopal Secretary to two Newbishops, engaged with co-conspirators in California to make over 300,000 dollars in drugs sales out of his rectory. Then, in order to launder all of his ill-gotten proceeds, he bought an adult-video and sex-toy shop named "Land of Oz & Dorothy's Place." After sentencing, he was led out of the courtroom in a prison jumpsuit in handcuffs back to prison. The U.S. Attorney on the case stated: "It's a serious conspiracy charge involving a very dangerous drug."
There was more to the Wallin situation than the meth, the pornography, and the conspiracy. He had been suspended from the public ministry in May 2014 because he had sodomized other men in the Newcathedral's rectory while he smoked meth in a pipe.
True Catholics, where do they get these Newchurch prelates? The clueless pew Newchurchers seem to think that they are prayerful holy men, whereas in fact a recent survey showed that two out of three presbyters/Newprelates don't say even a single prayer daily. Has Francis-Bergoglio and his accomplices ever considered that these presbyters and Newbishops don't have enough real work to do and so get into trouble from the capital sin of sloth? Instead, Newchurch constantly moans that it doesn't have enough clergy.
May 6, 2015, marks the tenth anniversary of the death of the founder of our movement, the Catholic Traditionalist Movement, Fr. Gommar DePauw. Fr. DePauw was a noted Catholic priest, having received a triple doctorate, in Canon Law, Moral Theology, and Church History, from the Catholic University of Louvain, Belgium (when it was Catholic!), the same honors as did Bishop Fulton Sheen, and having served as Academic Dean at the Primatial Seminary of the United States, in Baltimore, Maryland. In 1964 Fr. DePauw founded the Catholic Traditionalist Movement, having left essentially left the Newchurch structure to become an independent traditional Catholic priest, six years before Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre founded the Society of St. Pius X. It is truly a sin against justice perpetrated by so-called traditional Catholics of the United States that Fr. DePauw's name is not far more widely known and revered.
Fr. DePauw passed to eternity at the age of 87 one day after the feastday of Pope St. Pius V, whose Solemn Papal Bull "Quo Primum," canonizing in perpetuity the Catholic and Apostolic Traditional Latin Mass, Fr. DePauw widely publicized, although, to that time it had hardly been read. The actual day of his death, which may well have marked his entry into beatitude, was the feastday of St. John the Apostle and Evangelist, when he was tortured before the Latin Gate of Rome. Surely, Fr. DePauw saw much torture, of the mental kind, from "officials" of the nascent Newchurch of the New Order, and even from "traditionalists," who did not recognize the signal courage it took him -- in 1964, remember -- to fight the Newchurch already in its formative stage.
Heaven itself seems to have chosen Fr. DePauw to spend most of his life, especially in the tumultuous years during and after the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965), in courageous and steadfast defense of the true, traditional Catholic and Apostolic Faith. Although most priests at the time stayed within the now Newchurch "structure" and accepted the Modernist changes of the New Order, including the invalid, sacrilegious, and Protestantized "New Mass," Fr. DePauw vehemently rejected such a course of action, as he wisely chose to follow the two-thousand-year teachings, doctrines, and practices of the Catholic Church. Yet he not only stayed loyal to his priestly vows, which included the solemn oath against Modernism, but also waged a largely one-man crusade to promote and maintain the Traditional Catholic Faith while he led a continuous barrage against the New Religion.
One of the most remarkable aspects of his counter-Conciliar campaign was that Fr. DePauw established the Catholic Traditionalist Movement before Vatican II had even ended! Before Archbishop Lefevre, SSPX, SSPV, CMRI, SSPV, Ecclesia Dei, the Indult of 1988, and the Motu of 2007, it was Fr. Gommar DePauw who first saw that the flowery talk of a New Springtime for the Church was a ruse being deceptively used to befuddle the faithful while the revolutionaries enacted their Modernistic anti-Catholic agenda.
In the aftermath of Vatican II, there was virtually nothing for traditional Catholics except Fr. DePauw's radio Masses and his Catholic Traditionalist Movement periodicals and recordings, broadcast all over North America from his Ave Maria Chapel on Westbury, Long Island, New York, at a time when Newchurch was trying to claim that that the two-thousand-year Traditional Latin Mass no longer existed! For those who lived through the early Conciliar period, it was a bleak time, yet, because of Fr. DePauw, countless souls were inspired to resist the New Order, and thus the groundwork was laid for the current Traditional Catholic Movement.
While more celebrated clerics of the post-war era, like Bishop Fulton Sheen, and Catholic "intellectuals," like William Buckley, eventually came to accept the anti-Catholic "modernizations," Fr. DePauw instead obeyed, as St. Peter (but not his purported Newpope successors after Vatican II) wisely taught: God first. Nor did he grovel to the Novus Ordo apparatus to seek "permission" of Newchurch bishops or send petitions to Newpopes to grant an "indult" for what he and every Catholic priest has the Apostolic right and duty: to dispense the Sacraments for the salvation of souls and to offer the immemorial Mass for the glory of Almighty God -- in the valid, traditional Latin form.
For further information, click on Obituary - Fr. Gommar De Pauw: A Priest for Our Times in the section "Special Features (Articles, Reviews, Sermon Series, Other)."
True Catholics, you should get down on your knees tonight and pray a Requiem aeternam for this courageous priest who showed us all the right way, the traditional way, and refused to back down to the pretender Newclergy of the invalid New Order. If you have the Traditional Latin Mass and Sacraments today, you would not have them -- unless Fr. DePauw had paved the way for you.
The priest Jan Hus (1369-1415) may be unknown to most Catholics, but is well known to Protestants. He was the leading voice to pave the way for the later Protestant Revolt of the early 16th century, led by the arch-heretic Martin Luther. His followers came to be known as Hussites. He was excommunicated in 1410 for heresy against Catholic doctrine on the nature of the Church, the Holy Eucharist, and other theological topics.
Francis-Bergoglio has appointed Newcardinal Miloslav Vlk as Special Papal Envoy for the commemoration of the 600th anniversary of the death of the heretic, to be held in Prague, Czech Republic, on July 5-6, 2015. Bergoglio also apologized for the Church's action against the heretic, as had the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla in 1999 for his "moral courage." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
True Catholics, these Newpopes love to praise heretics and condemn traditional Catholics. Cases such as this provide more evidence why the Newchurch of the New Order is not Catholic, but essentially a wing of the Protestant sect.
On May 3, 2015, Fr. Brendan King quit Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX. He joined Fr. Edward MacDonald, who quit just after Easter 2015 to become an independent Traditional Catholic priest. Fr. Paul Morgan, District Superior of the Neo-SSPX in Britain and Ireland, is departing as District Superior and will be leaving the Neo-SSPX for a year's "sabbatical." This is probably just a polite way of quitting Fellay's Neo-SSPX because it is well known that Fellay has had it in for Fr. Morgan, after the latter gave true reports to his congregations on what Fellay was doing in "negotiations" with Newrome.
These departures mean that NSSPX-Britain has lost 20 per cent of its priestly force. Fellay's Neo-SSPX has lost about that number of its some 600 priest-presbyters worldwide since Fellay has worked to sell out Archbishop Lefebvre's once traditional organization to the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order. Other departures will follow. Fr. King excoriates Fellay for denouncing the very act, the recent consecration of an independent traditional Catholic bishop, Jean-Michel Faure, necessary for the survival of the Church. Fr. King issued a public Statement of Position that essentially rejected all of Superior-Dictator Bernie Fellay's pro-Newchurch machinations. We excerpt from that statement here:
STATEMENT OF POSITION
We think close co-operation with the post conciliar authorities at the present time would be harmful and even destructive for the goal that we are working toward, which is the full restoration in the Church of Catholic Tradition and the establishment of the Social Reign of Our Lord Jesus Christ....
Rome has always been the centre of Catholic unity, and the Papacy the guardian of orthodoxy for two thousand years. Tragically, Catholic Rome and the successors of Peter have for the past forty years succumbed to the powerful influences of liberal Protestantism and Modernism leading to the weakening of the faith of millions of souls and drawing the Church of Christ towards apostasy. As a consequence of this, devout Catholics have been obliged to withdraw their obedience and allegiance from the post-conciliar authorities in order to preserve their faith and Catholic way of life. We must obey God and the authority of Catholic Tradition, rather than the false Modernist shepherds of contemporary Rome. This situation and choice has been forced on traditional Catholics by Modernist Rome because Vatican II is the cause of the crisis.
We do not accept that Rome is now more sympathetic towards Tradition.... So rather than seek a rapprochement with Rome, we need to maintain our position of prudent, but respectful detachment. Surely, our firm and constant adherence to the perennial magisterium of the Church is the best witness we can give to Modernist Rome.
According to TRADITIO's India Correspondent, it may well be as a result of this loss of forces that Fellay, for the first time in the history of the Neo-SSPX, has appointed a native Indian, Fr. Teresian Babu, to as head of the Neo-SSPX in India.
True Catholics, as Fellay continues his ongoing machinations, more surreptitious now, to sell out to the New Order headquartered in Newrome, his Neo-SSPX organization continues to bleed the best of his priests who, in good conscience, must condemn his attempted sellout and officially quit him. And District Superior Fr. Paul Morgan was one of the very best.
It may be that the regime of the worst Newpope yet, Francis-Bergoglio, may shortly be over, according to the statement of Bergoglio himself. And this is not the first time that he has predicted the early end of his administration, which has introduced into Newchurch a doctrine and moral corruption that surpasses even that of his predecessors. Bergoglio is 78. He has had one lung removed and has gained more than 20 kilograms in the last two years, which one physician has described as a common in later life in one-lunged people, as the circulation begins to suffer from lack of oxygen. It is for this reason, apparently, that he cannot sing the New Order service; he can only recite it. He also suffers from sciatica, a nerve disease.
On May 3, 2015, Francis-Bergoglio told a group of Newchurchers at the Ostia Newparish that he was "old and ailing." The meeting was broadcast on the Italian television channel TV2000. Ostia is the ancient port of Rome, extensively excavated under an archaeological programme zealously forwarded by Italy's dictator, Benito Mussolini. Ostia has now become a beachfront area of Rome.
In March 2015 Francis-Bergoglio had already said in an interview with a Mexican broadcaster: "I have the feeling that my pontificate will be brief -- four or five years, even two or three. Two have already passed." Bergoglio's predecessor, Benedict-Ratzinger, already set the precedent in 2015 of abdicating for what he claimed were medical problems, although most informed sources believe that he abdicated in reality to prevent more scandals being made public about his involvement in suborning paedophilia among his Newclergy. Although Ratzinger's predecessor, JPII-Wojtyla, served until his death at age 84 from complications of Parkinson's Disease, Bergogio is on record as saying that Ratzinger's abdication should not be considered "an exception, but an institution." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
True Catholics, most people intuit a good deal about their own health. From his frequent comments on his Newpapacy ending quickly, one gets the impression that he knows what he is talking about. Bergoglio reminds us of Caiphas, the politically-shrewd and savvy High Priest who was the principal engineer of Our Lord's death. As one commentator wrote: "If your perception of Francis-Bergoglio is of a sweet, little old man who likes to mumble prayers in Italian and kiss babies on the cheek, get that thought out of your head immediately. Bergoglio is a shrewd, savvy, highly-motivated political player, who is throwing the full weight of Newvatican behind a Marxist globalist agenda." Bergoglio's predicted short regime would relieve the world of not a Catholic pope, but of an anti-Catholic "political player."
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
When did the Church begin to worship on Sunday rather than on the Jewish Sabbath (Saturday)? I maintained in an argument it was shortly after Christ's death and Resurrection on Sunday, while a friend insists that it took a while longer, as the early Christians kept many of the Jewish practices for years.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Your answer is more correct. St. Luke in the Acts of the Apostles (20:7/DR) in the New Testament, writes:
And on the first day of the week, when we were assembled to break bread, Paul discoursed with them, being to depart on the morrow. And he continued his speech until midnight.
St. Jerome's Latin Vulgate renders St. Luke's phrase as "in una sabbati," which, as usual in St. Jerome's literally accurate renditions, closely parallels the Greek text: "en te mia ton sabbaton," literally "on (day) one of the week," that is, the Lord's Day, or Sunday.
Moreover, St. Paul writes in his First Epistle to the Corinthians (16:2): "On the first day of the week, let every one of you put apart with himself, laying up what it shall well please him: that when I come, the collections be not then to be made."
These Biblical references, indicating that Sunday became the day of worship shortly after the death and Resurrection of Christ, when the Apostles were still alive, are confirmed by St. Justin, Martyr (ca. 100-165), who writes within a few decades of Sts. Luke and Paul, and is thus an early witness to the practices of the Apostolic Church. He confirms in his Apologia (I.67) that the Christians worshipped "on day called that of the Sun," that is, Sunday.
One of the highest-ranking Newchurch clergymen in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, was ordered back to prison on April 30, 2015, when the Pennsylvania Supreme Court denied his excuses and reinstated his conviction for knowingly covering up sex crimes against children by Newchurch's paedophile presbyters. Newmonsignor William Lynn's bail was revoked, and he was unceremoniously led off in handcuffs behind bars once again, sentenced to three to six years in prison for endangering the welfare of children. In justice, virtually every Newchurch bishop and official in the United States (to take only one country) should join him there. Two dozen U.S. Newchurch bishops and close to 10,000 presbyters have been charged with sex crimes against children.
Lynn was a longtime Secretary of the Clergy in Philadelphia and supervised the 800 presbyters there. He was the first U.S. Newchurch official to be prosecuted and convicted in Newchurch's ongoing Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. Lynn was convicted of covering up sex crimes against children, often by transferring predatory presbyters to unsuspecting Newparishes. The jury had heard weeks of agonizing testimony from many of these, who said that they had been sodomized, raped, and otherwise sexually assaulted by Newchurch presbyters. Lynn hid the complaints in a a locked file, called the "Secret Archives," which Lynn's accomplice, Philadelphia's Newcardinal Anthony Bevilacqua, ordered destroyed. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
True Catholics, Newmonsignor Lynn turned on his principall and claimed that it was really Newcardinal Bevilacqua Newcardinal Anthony Bevilacqua who was responsible. Bevilacqua died in 2012, some said by his own hand, just days before damning evidence was found in his Philadelphia Newchurch office. Thus, he ended up facing first the much more several judgement of Christ the Judge, Who prescribed the judgment: "he should be drowned in the depth of the sea" (Matthew 18:6/DRV), in this case the River Styx in Hades.
Fr. Nicholas Gruner, whom some dubbed the "Fatima priest," died suddenly on April 30, 2015, four days short of his 73rd birthday. He was working in his office late in the evening when he suffered an apparent heart attack. De mortuis nil nisi bonum, goes the saying, but Scripture adds: magna est veritas, et praevalet (1 Esdras 4:41/V). Trying to keep both principles in mind, we provide the following as a broad moral commentary. Gruner was an example of a perhaps conservative-bent, but not traditional priest, like so many of the "conservative" or "pseudo-traditionalist" Newclergy who try to play footsie with the Newchurch of the New Order and end up being swallowed up in its anti-Catholic quicksand. In this regard, another Latin aphorism comes to mind: Qui cum canibus concubunt, cum pulicibus surgent, "those who bed down with dogs get up with fleas."
Unlike Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, founder of the original Society of St. Pius X, who condemned Newchurch for what it is, "not Catholic," Fr. Gruner was excessively concerned about whether the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order recognized him. Unlike Archbishop Lefebvre, who accomplished much more because he didn't have to waste his time with pointless "negotiations" and meetings with Newchurch officials who had no real interest except to distract him, Gruner constantly begged for "recognition" by the anti-Catholic Newchurch organization. As history has proven in the almost 25 years of the regime of the Archbishop's successor in name only, Bernie Fellay, such attempted associations with the Newchurch of the New Order are an utter waste of time and money, and simply play into the hands of anti-Catholic Newprelates and Newpopes.
Fr. Gruner always remained part of the New Order system in which he had been installed as a Novus Ordo presbyter in 1976 and from which he could not detach himself for the rest of his life. He wanted to have his cake and eat it too. He wanted to hobnob with Newchurch prelates, but tried to ignore their authority and answer to a Newbishop. In 1996 Newchurch suspended him, and Gruner lost on appeal in a final decision in September 2001 by the highest Newvatican court. Gruner simply denied that he had ever been suspended by Newchurch, at all, but instead of once and for all detaching himself from Newchurch, the Canadian had himself incardinated into the Newdiocese of Hyderabad, India. The Newchurch bishops of Toronto and London in Canada, where Gruner was operating, warned their Newchurchers not to support Gruner.
At this time Fr. Gruner stopped mentioning the issue of his suspension from Newchurch functions in his periodical, Fatima Crusader. He had also argued regularly for the Traditional Latin Mass in almost every issue of his periodical, but around the time that he joined the New Order diocese of Hyderabad, his articles in favor of the Traditional Latin Mass abruptly stopped, and he detached himself not from Newchurch, but from the Traditional Latin Mass as one of the most important goals for restoring the Church.
As the years of the 21st century progressed, Fr. Gruner slipped deeper and deeper into the black hole of what came to be known as the error of Fatimism. (For further information on this error, click on FAQ10: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Beliefs? in the section "Fatima.") Gruner even dabbled with heresy by publishing that Fatima was on a level with Sacred Scripture (the Bible) and interpreted Sacred Scripture. To this day, there is great controversy about what exactly happened at Fatima in 1917, but what we do know without question is that Fatima can never be doctrine and can never be part of the Catholic and Apostolic Deposit of Faith because it is not Apostolic teaching. That ended with the death of St. John the Apostle in the early second century. That is Catholic dogma, to deny which makes one a heretic.
Fr. Gruner's erroneous, even heretical, raising of Fatima to the level of Catholic doctrine led him to sink into additional error. He was scheduled to appear at an event to mark the descredited "apparitions" in Bayside, New York. If there are doubts about the details of Fatima, there are none about Bayside. It is as phony as Medjugorje. The Newbishop of Brooklyn, New York, where Bayside is located, issued a strong condemnation of Gruner's appearance and confirmed that Newchurch considered Gruner suspended.
True Catholics, the case of Fr. Gruner should be a serious warning to "conservatives" and "pseudo-traditionalists" who yearn to be a part of Newchurch -- like Gruner, like Bernie Fellay of the Neo-SSPX. They are destined to fall further and further from the Catholic Faith. Perhaps Gruner's devotion to Fatima was at first balanced and reasonable. But then it became more and more unreasonable, to the point that Fatima became more important to him than Catholic doctrine and the highest Catholic Sacrament, the Traditional Latin Mass. In a way, the basis of his error was to turn away from Christ to a kind of Mary goddess. And there is nothing Catholic, or even Christian, about that!
Independent traditional Catholic priest, Courtney Krier, showed how to stand up to government officials when he fought the City of Las Vegas, Nevada -- and won. The city had attempted to charge for parking in front of his St. Joseph's Traditional Catholic Church in downtown Las Vegas. City workers had started to bore holes to mount parking meters in front of his church. The planned meters were accompanied by a new sign telling congregants to "Pay to Park."
Within three days, after Krier dunned the city, both the sign and any evidence of planned parking meters in front of the church had disappeared. Krier said that the city hadn't consulted his congregation before starting work on the project, one he said would have amounted to making the faithful "pay to go to church." Krier added that the city has been doing everything it can to drive churches out of downtown for years. An investigative report by the Las Vegas Review-Journal revealed that the Las Vegas Parking Manager had been tasked with upping parking-meter revenue by 30 per cent in one year!

True Catholics, the example that we must follow in these times is that of St. Paul, who certainly didn't "accept in silence" the predations of the officials of his time, both of Church and State, but confronted them and won many battles against the powerful Jewish Synagogue and the Roman Empire. St. Paul shows us what we can accomplish if we confront evil boldly and directly, with courage.
If there's one thing about Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, it is that he doesn't seem to have a Catholic bone in his body. The latest scandal enveloping him is his rebuke of a devout altar boy, whom he encountered standing at the entrance to the Confession of St. Peter, that is, the area beneath the high altar of St. Peter's Archbasilica where the popes are buried. Bergoglio scolded the boy for having his hands in the traditional position of prayer, with the palms together, finger to finger, pointing slightly upward. Instead of praising the boy for his devotion, Bergoglio, who is well known for his hatred any vestige of traditional Catholicism, scolded the boy, making fun of his devotion: "Are your hands bound together? They seems like they're stuck."
Then, as if Bergoglio had completely blown off the recent scandal of his knowingly appointing a paedophile supporter and homosexual voyeur as the Newbishop of a Chilean Newdiocese, Bergoglio proceed to snuggle and smooch the altar boy, who appeared to be about ten or eleven years of age. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Rome Reports.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio would apparently prefer to have the altar boy clapping his hands over his head to the beat of "Kumbaya" than display a devout Catholic appearance. Moreover, Bergoglio truly seems to be in a state of dementia, openly snuggling and smooching boys in public, oblivious of all the charges against him and his Newchurch for rampant complicity in paedophilia.
