The novel and false doctrine of "Oecumenism" was rife at the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965), having been introduced principally through the personal agency of Josef Ratzinger, the besuited peritus, whose formulation that "the Church of Christ subsists in [rather than "is"] the Catholic Church" (Lumen gentium 8). For Newchurch, no longer is the Catholic Church "the one, true Church of Christ," the dogmatic formulation of the Catholic Church. From Ratzinger's formulation comes such sequelae as "we all worship the same god," "all religions are the same," "there is no one true faith." Such notions in Catholic dogma have traditionally been labeled the heresy of "Syncretism." That is a nasty word -- as it should be for a nasty heresy--, so Vatican II changed the word to the more benign "Oecumenism," newly whitewashed at that "Robber Council."
Francis-Bergoglio has carried this New Order doctrine to a new nadir, according to some sources, when he was supposed to have said on June 22, 2015:
Jesus Christ, Mohammed, Jehovah, Allah. These are all names employed to describe an entity that is distinctly the same across the world. For centuries, blood has been needlessly shed because of the desire to segregate our faiths. This, however, should be the very concept which unites us as people, as nations, and as a world bound by faith. Together, we can bring about an unprecedented age of peace, all we need to achieve such a state is respect each others beliefs, for we are all children of God regardless of the name we choose to address him by. We can accomplish miraculous things in the world by merging our faiths, and the time for such a movement is now. No longer shall we slaughter our neighbors over differences in reference to their God.
Whether Bergoglio made this particular disputed statement or not, he has certainly made statements very much like it, as a self-proclaimed proud "son" of the Modernist Vatican II Council, Bergoglio in a number of statements seems to advocate some kind of One World Religion. Religious differences are "needless segregation," proclaims Bergoglio. To Bergoglio all "faiths" are the same: there is no right and wrong. He wants to merge all "faiths" together, not into the true Catholic Faith, but some kind of secularized/oecumenized fabrication. That, after all, is the essence of false "Oecumenism," Because that is Bergoglio's belief, why doesn't he just abdicate now, wrap up his Newchurch corporation and its banking interests, sell off its physical assets to the poor, and save the world a lot of time and money?
True Catholics, how does Francis-Bergoglio justify the continued existence of his Newchurch and his Newpapacy? Actually, his embracing of false "oecumenism" makes sense -- from the New Order perspective. Bergoglio just doesn't have the courage to carry out convictions to the end. The perks of money and power that go with being Newpope must be just too enticing to him!
Our readers in the United States are doubtlessly reeling from the decision of their Supreme Court on June 26, 2015, that their Constitution includes a "right" to "gay marriage." George Washington, praised as a prudent man by Pope Leo XIII, must be turning over in his grave. Washington was a fighter. He fought the greatest empire then on the face of the earth, the British Empire. He suffered grievously at Valley Forge. He could easily have given up what appeared to be a hopeless cause, but he never did. He pressed on -- and his persistence and courage eventually won the day for him. No wonder Pope Leo singled him out for praise in his Encyclical Letter Longinqua oceani (January 6, 1895).
One of the reasons that U.S. "Catholics" lost the battle against "gay marriage," a perversion against the Natural Law that Washington and the other Founding Fathers of the American Republic fought for in their Declaration of Independence (July 4, 1776) is that Catholics" -- and this includes traditional Catholics -- did not fight against this evil, not really. Most "Catholics" dropped out completely, or sold out to the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order and its Newpopes. They allowed themselves to be pushed around by less than two per cent of the population. They became worse than the Mormons, who at least kept up the fight against the perversion.
"Be not deceived: God is not mocked (Galatians 6:7/DRV). U.S. "Catholics" deserved this rejection because they have sat by twiddling their thumbs while one of the Four Sins that Cry out to Heaven for Retribution took hold in their country, at a rate that is astonishing, some fifty years. The Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio even said that he "couldn't judge" this vile sin. Our Lord Jesus Christ tells us (Apocalypse 3:16/DRV) that he "vomits out of his mouth" such people: "Every one therefore that shall confess me before men, I will also confess him before my Father who is in heaven. But he that shall deny me before men, I will also deny him before my Father who is in heaven" (Matthew 10:32-33/DRV).
Let's face the truth of the matter. Even traditional Catholics have had it too easy. Many have became slothful and self-centered. Many have moaned about losing the Traditional Latin Mass, Catholic doctrine, and Catholic morality, but most have done very little, if anything, about it. Many have continued to support, with their mouths and even their bodies, the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order and its Three Vile Vicars: the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio. Many act like junkies: they can't seem to kick the Newchurch/Newpope habit, no matter how much they talk against it.
Traditional Catholics have forgotten that for three centuries the Church suffered in the catacombs, but because of the courage of the Catholics in those three centuries, God rewarded them with an inconceivable prize: they conquered the entire pagan Roman empire and made it Christian. Tertullian said it best: "Sanguis matryrum, semen Christianorum." In fact, St. Alphonsus Liguori in his book, Victories of the Martyrs, tells us that eleven million men, women, and children were martyred for the Faith before the Roman emperor Constantine's Edict of Milan in 313 allowed Christianity to come out of the catacombs and take over the entire empire.
Many, even traditional Catholics, have not striven to merit God's blessing. Many have done very little to stand up to pagans, infidels, secularists, Newchurchers, Newpopes, and all the others who have almost destroyed the Catholic Faith before their eyes. Instead, they want to take it easy. They want the "old days" back when they didn't have to fight for the true Faith. Even today, they still don't want to fight. They have lost their Catholic attitude. Of all the images that the great Apostle to the Gentiles could have used, he chose: "I have fought a good fight" (2 Timothy 4:78/DRV). And how did God reward St. Paul for fighting for Him: "There is laid up for me a crown of justice" (2 Timothy 4:8/DRV).
Traditional Catholics in the United States, as well as all Christians, have to examine their consciences and judge themselves honestly, whether they have fought as hard as God has enabled them to fight: against anti-Catholic morality, anti-Catholic doctrine, and anti-Catholic worship wherever they have found it, even against the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order and its anti-Catholic Newpopes, who promote such ungodly and vile things.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
If a bishop ordains priest without a papal mandate, he incurs an automatic excommunication. Are the priests he ordains validly ordained?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Yes, they are quite valid, but your statement is incorrect. There has never been a "papal mandate" required to ordain a priest. Any bishop can ordain any priest at any time with no permission required from anyone. This fact is true even in Newchurch. You are probably confusing the consecration of a bishop by another bishop. Normally, a papal mandate is required for the consecration of a bishop, but not always. For example, several bishops were consecrated without a papal mandate during World War II in places where the Church was forced underground, and no contact with the Vatican was possible.
Without a situation of necessity, there is a penalty in the traditional Code of Canon Law for non-exempt consecrations without a papal mandate, but it is not excommunication. In the Newchurch Code of 1983 -- which traditional Catholics generally hold to be null and void because it emanates from the non-existent authority of the patently anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order --, a penalty of excommunication is mentioned, but not as automatical for all cases. Again, a situation of necessity (among several other exceptions) exempts.
Traditional Catholic bishops consecrating other traditional Catholic bishops (such as Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre) have regularly announced before consecrating that they are operating under a emergency Apostolic Mandate, provided for in Catholic Sacramental theology and Canon Law, in order to preserve the true Catholic Faith:
EMERGENCY APOSTOLIC MANDATE
We have a Mandate to consecrate from the Roman Church, which, in its fidelity to Sacred Tradition received from the Apostles, commands us to hand down faithfully that Sacred Tradition, namely, the Deposit of the Faith, to all men by reason of their duty to save their souls.
For indeed, on the one hand, the authorities of the Church of Rome from the Second Vatican Council down to today are driven by a spirit of Modernism which undermines in depth Sacred Tradition to the point of twisting its very notion: "There shall be a time when they will not endure sound doctrine, turning away their hearing from the truth, turning unto fables," as St. Paul says to Timothy in his second Epistle (IV, 3,5). What use would it be to ask such authorities for a Mandate to consecrate a bishop who is going to be profoundly opposed to their most grave error?
By this handing down of the episcopal power of Orders, no episcopal power of jurisdiction is assumed or granted, and as soon as God intervenes to save His Church, which has no more human hope of rescue, the effects of this consecration and of its emergency Mandate will be without delay put back in the hands of a pope once more wholly Catholic.
None of these exceptional situations makes any difference whatsoever to the validity of the Sacrament itself. Penalties, such as excommunication, are administrative matters (questions of administrative lawfulness, not Sacramental validity) are certainly subject to error, and have nothing to do with the validity of the Sacrament itself. It is Catholic dogma that the Sacraments operate ex opere operato, that is, from the Sacrament itself, because Sacramental authority comes from Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself, not from any man, so whatever purported disputes about lawfulness there may or may not be in a given situation, they have no impact on the validity of the Sacrament. This doctrine is rock-solid Catholic Sacramental theology, which goes back at least as far as to the Doctor of the Church, St. Augustine of Hippo, in the fourth century.
The problem for Newchurch today is that it no longer uses the valid, traditional Sacrament of Holy Orders, but a substitute, based upon Protestant models, which Newchurch adopted in 1968 in its Protestantized New Ordinal. In fact, Newchurch no longer "ordains" priests or "consecrates" bishops, but merely "installs" presbyters "to preside over the assembly of the people" and Newbishops to "supervise the faithful." The 1968 Protestantized Newchurch form is defective, does not confer a Sacrament, and is not just unlawful, but invalid.
It used to be that the Romans fought the barbarians. But ever since the Newchurch of the New Order appropriated the Catholic Church after the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965), it is Newrome and the Newpopes who have become the barbarians, Philistines who do nothing while the Roman civilization that the are supposed to protect is ransacked by Mohammadan terrorists, who hate Western civilization and are destroying it.
On June 24, 2015, Mohammedan terrorists associated with the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) destroyed two historic mausolea in Palmyra, Syria, raising fears that the Mohammedans could next target the town's famed Roman and Roman Catholic historical monuments. Palmyra's world-heritage site is famous for its 2,000-year-old colonnades, known as the Tetrapylon (Four Pillars), an almost intact amphitheater, and other priceless monuments and artifacts. These great historical monuments of Roman civilization are on a par with the Forum Romanum or the Colosseum. The Mohammedans have already done significant damage to the Biblical city of Nineve, which traditional Catholics will recall is referred to in the traditional Latin liturgy for Holy Saturday (Tenth Prophecy, from the Book of Jonas, 3:1-10). [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
People of our time can now finally understand why popes of the mediaeval period declared Holy Crusades against the Mohammedans, not because Christians wanted to annex the Middle Eastern lands, but because the Mohammedans were taking over Christian sites and preventing pilgrims from accessing them. But the wimpy Newpopes of the Newchurch of the New Order, substituted for the "institutional Church" after Vatican II, stand by twiddling their thumbs, while Roman and Roman Catholic civilization is destroyed by the Mohammedans. So corrupt is the Newpapacy that the blasphmer "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla actually bent over to kiss the Koran presented to him by an infidel Imam and called it a "Holy Book." This "Holy Book" directs: "Kill those [Christians] who join other gods with Allah wherever you find them; besiege them, seize them, lay in wait for them.... When you encounter the unbelievers [Christians], strike off their heads, until ye have made a great slaughter among them." And this is exactly what the Mohammedans are now doing.
Worse than that, the "Three Vile Vicars," Wojtyla and his successors Benedict-Ratzinger and Francis-Bergoglio, actually play sycophants to the Mohammedans. Bergoglio, if he really acted like a true pope, would cancel his junket to Philadelphia in the United States and instead go to Palmyra to do everything he could to save it. But no, Bergoglio, like all Modernists/Liberalists wants to destroy Tradition so that he can "reform" the future into a Marxist utopia. This is exactly what happened at the Modernist Vatican II Council to destroy the valid Traditional Catholic Latin Mass and Sacraments, Catholic dogma, and Catholic morals and to replace them with Modernist/Liberalist invalid frauds, based on Protestantism, Freemasony, and Paganism.
Bergoglio hates true (traditional) Catholics, whom he has called at one time or another "doctrinaire, idealogue, rigid, ritualistic, rigorous, closed in the past, Pelagian, Donatist." On the other hand, Bergoglio loves Marxists, atheists, and homosexuals. This barbarism of Newchurch and of its Newpopes is all a product of the Modernist/Liberalist mindset introduced at Vatican II, which preached that all religions are equal, we all worship the same god, and there is no one true religion.
And who was responsible for introducing this New Order teaching at Vatican II? That fact is well documented. It was the Modernist Josef Ratzinger, later styled Benedict XVI, who went around the Council dressed in a business suit and hung out having beer with heretics like his bosom-buddies Hans Kung and Karl Rahner. But Ratzinger was ever the "artful dodger." Somehow he got the clueless Neocons in Newchurch to be believe that he was "traditional," whereas in fact was just the opposite: a man who placed under suspicion of heresy by Pope Pius XII and the Holy Office and whose book was banned because of heresy.
True Catholics, the "Three Vile Vicars" are not "Roman" Catholic -- whether they are technically popes or not is far from the issue any longer. They have all twiddled their thumbs doing nothing while our precious Roman and Roman Catholic heritage is destroyed. They should well fear the future Mohammedan plane that will crash into St. Peter's Basilica and destroy them all in one fell swoop. The United States, France, and now the Middle East have learned that lesson the hard way.
There is a dispute about whether Buddhism is actually a religion at all, or merely a pagan philosophy. Yet after the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965), the Newchurch of the New Order and its Newpopes have fawned over these pagans scandalously. The Newpopes have annually sent personal letters of greeting to these pagans on Buddha's supposed birthday. All this is done in accord with Vatican II's heretical teaching of "False Oecumenism": all religions are equal, all gods are the same, there is no one true religion. Moreover, there seems to be a false notion around that Buddhists are such calm, passive, peaceful people. Nothing could be further from the truth! Buddhists can be vicious, as a recent incident proves.
A Buddhist monk attempted to stab to death a fellow monk at a Buddhist temple in Oakland, California, on June 16, 2015. The stabbed monk, who was the head monk, was taken to a hospital in critical condition, and the stabbing monk fled the scene before police arrived. The murderous monk was later apprehended and charged with attempted murder and aggravated mayhem for brandishing two knives with which he stabbed his fellow monk in the head and face. The murderous monk has confessed to the crime, saying that he was angry with the head monk for his "disciplinary tactics." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
True Catholics, the Newchurch of the New Order and its Newpopes pander their false oecumenism, which teaches that Allah and Buddha just as godly as, if not more godly than, Our Lord Jesus Christ, that terrorist Mohammedanism and murderous Buddhism are wonderful sects that deserve personal Newpapal respect and veneration. Catholicism, however, has traditionally regarded Mohammedans as infidels and Buddhists as pagans, and prays for their conversion to true Catholicism on Good Friday and on the Feast of Christ the King. For Francis-Bergoglio and his Newchurch to claim that these terrorists and pagans can hold a candle to Christianity is sheer madness.
Newchurch has again shot itself in the foot. More and more Newchurchers are coming to the realization that their Newchurch is possessed by demons -- literally, in the Biblical sense. A recent case in point is the entire country of Mexico, once-Catholic, which has been consumed by abnormally high levels of violence, drug cartels, and abortion. So, the former Newarchbishop of Guadalajara on May 20, 2015, performed a secret "exorcism" behind closed downs in the Newcathedral of San Luis Potosi. Of course, it was ineffective because the impotent New Order rite was used.
When the Newchurch abandoned the traditional Sacrament of Holy Orders after the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965) and substituted for it the invalid Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968, it eliminated five of the Holy Orders included in the traditional Sacrament. All traditional Catholic priests are ordained in the Minor Holy Orders of Porter, Lector, Exorcist, and Acolyte and the Major Holy Orders of Subdeacon and Deacon, in addition to Priest (sacerdos). The Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini's New Ordinal of 1968, in Protestant fashion, ordains no one, but merely "installs" deacons and presbyters, and Newchurch deacons can be laymen, not celibate clergy.
Thus, Newchurch has not ordained any Exorcists for over forty years! In fact, the Holy Order of Exorcist was eliminated, together with that of Porter (to guard the church), Lector (a cleric who performs a reading function performed by laymen and laywomen in Newchurch), Acolyte (a cleric who assists by the altar), and Subdeacon (who functions at a Solemn Mass and chants the Epistle). The Order of Exorcist goes back as early as the third century.
The few old Exorcists who remain in the Newchurch of the New Order, having received the Order before it was eliminated by Newchurch over forty years ago, such as Gabriel Amorth, Chief Exorcist of Rome, now retired from Newchurch, openly acknowledge that the New Rite of Exorcism is ineffective. Amorth has said that the Newchurch's New Rite of Exorcism is "a farce, an incredible obstacle that is likely to prevent us from acting against the demon." Amorth refused to use the ineffective New Rite and would perform exorcisms only in the traditional Rite of Exorcism -- and only in Latin. He has indicated that the demons to be exorcised laugh at Newchurch's use of vulgar tongues, but are in fear of the power of the traditional rite of Exorcism in the Latin language.
One Newchurch presbyter threw up his hands and admitted the press: "To the extent sin increases more and more in a country, to that extent it becomes easier for the demons to tempt [people]. To the extent there is more witchcraft and Satanism going on in a country, to that extent there will be more extraordinary manifestations of those powers of darkness." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
True Catholics, Mexico is bad enough, but demons possess no place more than Newrome, from its head on down. Even Francis-Bergoglio, an open promoter of sodomy, had to admit that his Newrome was possessed by the "Gay Lobby" among its clergy. Newchurch, which is anti-Catholic and even Marxist now under Francis-Bergoglio, has shot itself in the foot. It has lost all of its Sacramental power because it has substituted true Catholic Sacraments and true Catholic priests with Protestantized "services" and Protestantized "presbyters." Thus, Newchurch and its minions are suffering the just penalty of God that they knowingly and willingly engineered for themselves: "Wherefore God gave them up to the desires of their heart" (Romans 1:24/DRV).
Poor Francis-Bergoglio! He's getting a lot of public pushback on his latest political screed, mistitled an encyclical letter, which doesn't even have an official Latin version yet. Already several U.S. Presidential candidates who identify themselves as Newchurchers, have told Bergoglio to take his political teaching back to Newrome, that they have no obligation to accept it.
Yet the minions of Modernism/Liberalism, even Marxism, controlled by Francis-Bergoglio's Newvatican propaganda machine were out desperately trying to convince their Newchurchers that Bergoglio's political screed is part of the "magisterium." In a pig's eye! Neither does it directly concern faith and morals, not does it follow Sacred Tradition. It is a fake. And how do Catholics know for sure that Bergoglio's screed is a fake? Because the dogma defined by the Vatican I Council limiting the authority of the papacy is very clear:
This Magisterium is not superior to the Word of God, but is its servant. It teaches only what has been handed on to it. For the Holy Ghost was promised to the successors of Peter not in order that they might, by His revelation, make known some new doctrine, but that, by His assistance, they might religiously guard and faithfully expound the revelation or Deposit of Faith transmitted by the Apostles (Constitutio Dogmatica Prima de Ecclesia Christi (Pastor Aeternus), capitulum 4, De Romani Pontificis Infallibili Magisterio, July 18, 1870
One of the minions of unordained New Order presbyters rolled out to defraud Newchurchers into accepting Bergoglio's New Doctrine tried to claim that the screed was "social teaching." The notion of "social teaching" of Bergoglio's type is a modern, even Marxist, construct, introduced most clearly in John XXIII's Pacem in terris of 1963. The minions for New Order propaganda are scared to death that Newchurchers will simply write off Bergoglio's screed as not pertaining to religion and ignore it. Those Newchurchers are right. Bergoglio is operating outside his proper sphere, and true Catholics can rightly ignore his "teaching" as null and void, and thereby for certain not part of the Catholic magisterium.
But more is rotten in Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch of the Newer Order. If Bergoglio really believes in "global warming" -- more than he believes in Our Lord Jesus Christ, it seems -- why is he afraid to have an open scientific debate on the issue? Many scientists disagree with Bergoglio's self-serving notion that "global warming" (if it exists) is anthropogenic, i.e., created by humans.
One French scientist actually wanted to teach Bergoglio about another explanation, which has a lot of common sense, as well as a scientific basis: that "global warming" is created by solar activity, not greenhouse gases. He wanted to do what true scientists do: present his theory at Bergoglio's April 2015 meeting of the Pontifical Academy of Sciences, in which Bergoglio included politicians and economists -- but not this scientist. After he was told that he could come and after he bought his plane ticket, Bergoglio's representative told the scientist that he had no business being there. Newvatican didn't want to make it public that Bergoglio's science was based on something not much more rational than the theory of a flat earth. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Catholic Herald.]
True Catholics, why is Francis-Bergoglio so afraid to have an open scientific debate on the issue of "global warming"? Because he is not interested in truth or religion, but only politics and money. For this reason, Catholics can turn their backs on him. Catholic dogma is clear: no pope has any business outside the sphere of faith and morals, bounded by Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition. That is Catholic dogma, and not even Bergoglio can change it, any more than he can declare that the Blessed Virgin Mary was not immaculately conceived.
Yet another piece of phony propaganda that Newchurch, particularly its Newpopes Benedict-Ratzinger and Francis-Bergoglio, like to put out is that all is buddy-buddy between Christians and Jews since the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965). Nothing could be further from the truth! Jewish activists hate Christians and have been implicated in the burning of Catholic churches, many of them historic. The most recent incident involved an arson attack burning a substantial part of the Church of the Multiplication of the Loaves and Fishes, one of Christianity's holiest sites and a traditional site of pilgrimage in the Holy Land, built where Christ fed the 5,000 in a well-known miracle performed on the shore of the Sea of Galilee.
Jews spray-painted in garish red paint an nanti-Christian hate message in Hebrew on the remaining limestone wall of the Church. This message was drawn from a text recited three times a day by Jews: Aleinou LeShabeah, May the false gods [of the Christians] be eliminated. In this attack an elderly Benedictine monk and a novice suffered severe injuries from smoke inhalation.
This recent arson attack was certainly not the only attack against Christianity in Israel. In fact, in just the past three years there have been over 50 acts of violence against Christian churches by groups in Israel. But Judaeophiles Ratzinger and Bergoglio don't condemn them because they don't want their Newchurchers to know that their false Vatican II "oecumenism" has failed. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
True Catholics, Pope Pius IX was so concerned about Judaism that he wrote an Act of Consecration of the Human Race to the Sacred Heart of Jesus, in which he included the petition: "Turn Thine eyes of mercy toward the children of that race once Thy chosen people. Of old they called down upon themselves the Blood of the Savior; may It now descend upon them a laver of redemption and of life." Pope Pius XI required the Act to be recited by Catholics annually on the Feast of Christ the King, the Last Sunday of October, before the Most Blessed Sacrament exposed, while they recited or sang the Litany to the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus. After Vatican II, of course, the Act of Consecration was jettisoned in the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order. And Newchurch is now paying the high price for its infidelity to the true Catholic Faith.
On June 18, 2015, Francis-Bergoglio published his long-anticipated "Global Warming" Encyclical Letter, provisionally titled Laudato si, which would be rendered in Latin as Laudetur. The official Latin version, however, has not yet been published. This is a common tactic of Newchurch: to issue encyclical letters, catechisms, etc., first in vulgar tongues. Then, when the Newchurch leaders get reaction, they "massage" the text and issue the final version in Latin.
The "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla used this tactic when he tried to suppress capital punishment in contravention of Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition in the 1992 vulgar-tongued version of the Newcatechism. After Wojtyla had been publicly corrected in his erroneous theology by many Newchurchers, the condemnation in the Novus Ordo Catechism was watered down in the official Latin version, Catechismus Catholicae Ecclesiae, released five years later, in 1997. There was no secret about what Wojtyla had attempted to do. The vulgar version contained a note openly admitting that it was "subject to revision according to the Latin typical edition (editio typica) when it is published."
So, in his first solo encyclical letter -- this one not having been co-authored (as far as we know) by Ex-Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger, as was June 29, 2013's Lumen fidei--, Francis-Bergoglio has publicly inaugurated his Marxist-based Newchurch of the Newer Order, a secularization of the Newchurch of the New Order, which was established in 1965 at the conclusion of the Modernist Vatican II Council to replace the Catholic Church as the "institutional Church." As part of his anti-Catholic disinformation campaign, Bergoglio is trying to scare the public into accepting a vast expansion of government supposedly to stop an unproven hypothesis of "global warming" when, in fact, the data in the last few years has shown a "global cooling." Oops! The disastrous consequence of autocratic Marxist governments is, however, proven.
Francis-Bergoglio's new pseudo-encyclical is a gross embarrassment to those who look back to deeply-religious, lofty Encyclical Letters of the past, going back as far as the early Church, when they were instituted. In effect, many of the Epistles in the New Testament are Encyclical Letters. Bergoglio's pseudo-encyclical is composed of six chapters entitled "The Gospel of Ecology (Creation)," "The Human Roots of the Ecological Crisis," "Integral Ecology," "Lines of Approach and Action," and "Ecological Education and Spirituality." It sounds like a Liberalist textbook on the science (?) of "ecology" rather than anything having to do with Catholicism, let alone with Our Lord Jesus Christ and His famous doctrine: "My kingdom is not of this world" (John 18:36/DRV).
Bergoglio is using the Hegelian Dialetic contrived by the "Protestant Aquinas," the German philosopher Georg Hegel, to create a manufactured problem, in this case "global warming," to gin up a public reaction: fear. Then, with Bergoglio as their cheerleader, autocratic governments can step in to offer a predetermined solution: the expansion of government at the expense personal of liberty, which is the right of man, as explained by the Catholic's Church's Universal Doctor, St. Thomas Aquinas. The technique of anti-Catholic disinformation used by Bergoglio has been used successfully by politicians for millennia to expand government and curtail man's God-given Catholic liberty. Simply put, Bergoglio isn't really trying to "save the environment," but rather to give national and international governments ever greater autocratic powers.
In his advocacy of a Marxist-based philosophy, Bergoglio is following in the footsteps of his predecessor Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger, who openly promoted an overarching world government. Newvatican loves to have world governments crush individual liberty, except when they targeted Ratzinger and Bergoglio as paedophile facilitators before the United Nations Commission on the Rights of the Child. Then Newvatican vehemently rejected any higher moral authority than its own corrupted self. Yet the release of this pseudo-encyclical letter may be the beginning of the end for the Newchurch of the Newer Order. Bergoglio has stirred up a hornet's nest among even his own Newchurchers around the world, a large percentage of whom have already rejected his pseudo-encyclical letter and his feigned "authority" to issue it. They deny that the "encyclical" represents the Catholic and Apostolic Faith, in fact has anything whatsoever to do with the Catholic and Apostolic Faith.
Above all, what must be clearly understood is that according to Catholic dogma, this pseudo-encyclical has absolutely no binding religious force, as no pope (or Newpope) has authority over secular or scientific issues. Bergoglio is here speaking not as pope, but as head of the political entity known as the Città del Vaticano (Vatican City State), an quasi-country, constituted by Fascist Dictator Benito Mussolini in 1929, in area not even one half square kilometre. It is Catholic dogma, formulated by the First Vatican Council and solemnly promulgated by Pope Pius IX, that the pope has no teaching authority, let alone infallibility, in science and politics. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
True Catholics, it is clear that Francis-Bergoglio, who has definitive Marxist associations, is trying to change his Newchurch of the New Order into the Newchurch of the Newer Order, a non-religious, secular corporation. As such, his Newer Order sect is no different from secular corporations such as Save the Whales, Inc., and Hug a Tree, Inc. True Catholics can have full confidence that this pseudo-encyclical has nothing to do with Catholic doctrine and has no papal authority whatsoever. It comes from the political head of the Vatican City State -- who has no more authority than, say, Vladimir Putin.
A Newbishop appointed by the pseudo-traditionalist Newpope, now Ex-Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger in 2011 and promoted by the anti-traditionalist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio in 2015, has refused the (invalid) Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid to those who exercise their right, even under the phony Novus Ordo "Canon Law," to kneel and take the cookie on the tongue.
Wilson Angotti Filho, Bergoglio's appointee as a Newbishop of Sao Paolo, Brazil, the largest city in the Western Hemisphere, implemented the new dictum at his "Mess of Installation" on June 13, 2015 (since the 1968 New Ordinal, Newchurch no longer validly consecrates bishops in the Sacrament of Holy Orders, merely installs). When some of the Newchurchers knelt and opened their mouths, Wilson ordered them to stand up and take the cookie in their hands. One prominent presbyter-journalist openly called Angotti a chulo de mierda, a Spanish putdown meaning "half-wit" or "numskull" -- or worse! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholisches Magazin.]
True Catholics, these Newchurcher numskulls (to use the presbyter's own derogatory term) think that Newchurch "Canon Law" means something. It doesn't. Newchurch is essentially lawless. Whatever a bishop wants, a bishop gets, and no Bergoglio will tell him no. If you think about it, why should Newchurch, which totally disses Pope St. Pius V's infallible Solemn Papal Bull canonizing the Catholic and Apostolic Traditional Latin Mass pay any attention to the "rights" of its mere sheeple.
While Francis-Bergoglio abandons his Newpapacy to play alchemist and teach the world about fabled "global warming," his own organization, the Newchurch of the New Order, is going down the drain. Nor has he done anything to stop this decline. It is becoming clearer and clearer that Bergoglio could be a Marxist mole planted to destroy the very organization that he is supposed to head. If this is in fact the case, it would simply be repeating the technique used at the Vatican II Council, in which Modernists like Josef Ratzinger, Hans Kung, Hannibal Bugnini, and others worked to destroy the Catholic Church from the inside and replace it with a doppelganger New Order sect.
Here's the latest proof. Once France was known as the "Eldest Daughter of the Church." No longer. The Rector of the Grand Mosque in Paris, France, who is also President of the French Council of the Muslim Faith, has demanded that because so many of Newchurch's churches are empty or abandoned, the Mohammedans should take them over and convert them into mosques. Dalil Boubakeur says that there are currently about 2,500 mosques in France, with another 300 under construction, but the Mohammedan sect has been growing so fast that as many as 5,000 -- another 2,200 more -- are needed within two years!
The Newchurch of the New Order has been plummeting in France since the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965). The country that was once called the "Eldest Daughter of the Church" is rapidly becoming a Mohammedan country. There are already 5,000,000 Mohammedans in France. So, Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch has essentially given up. Newchurch has called the takeover of formerly Catholic churches by the Mohammedans to be "a legitimate demand."
Although Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order has not protested turning "Catholic" churches into mosques, France's conservative party, the National Front Party, has. The NFP has stated that France doesn't need more mosques, because "100 per cent of places of radicalization [for Islamic terrorism] are mosques." The NPF wants to freeze the construction of new mosques while the government verifies the origin of their financing, which it suspects to be from radical and terrorist sources.

True Catholics, you must be exceedingly wary when you hear how wonderfully Francis-Bergoglio and his Newchurch are doing. They aren't. The situation in France clearly shows how far Newchurch has plummeted. The press pays little attention to this reality because they are interested in Bergoglio only as a political spokesman for Liberalist causes.
Is Francis-Bergoglio history impaired? Apparently. Although the circumstances surrounding the Galileo debacle are complicated, one lesson that a good Marxist Newpope like Bergoglio should have learned is: "Stay 'Like Hell' out of Science!" (For further information, click on FAQ10: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Beliefs? in the section "Galileo" in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files: FAQs and Traditional Apologetics department.)
A draft in a vulgar tongue of Bergoglio's "environment encyclical" has leaked out, and it promises to be as bad as predicted. The final version is expected to be released -- it is unclear whether this will be the official Latin version or not -- on June 18, 2015. It seems that Bergoglio, who can't control paedophilia and rampant financial crimes among his own Newclergy, has decided that he is going to play God and control the tellurian environment instead. He buys into the unproven theory that whatever "global warming" there is is anthropogenic, that is, created by humans. Bergoglio must be wondering what kind of a perverse God would have created human beings in the first place if all they were going to do is muck up the territory of the Goddess Gaia!
Already several prominent Neocon Newchurchers, who usually support the Newpopes' New Order sect, have started coming out against Bergoglio's straying into non-religious fields. Newchurch Neocon Rick Santorum, a candidate for United States President in 2016, has in fact told Francis-Bergoglio to "stick to defending traditional morality." It seems that Santorum himself is history challenged. In fact, Bergoglio has not been defending traditional morality. Bergoglio supports, to one degree or another, homosexuality, abortion, and birth control. Now he is going to claim that "global warming" is dogma of the non-existent "magisterium" of his Newchurch.
True Catholics, you must remember that the Newchurch of the New Order is not the Catholic Church. It is a political organization. Bergoglio has abandoned Catholicism to become Chief Politician of the Newvatican City State. The Marxist Newpope would rather "pontificate" on secular matters, over which he has absolutely no authority -- that is Catholic dogma. It was Venerable Caesare Cardinal Baronius who quite pointedly stated the correct Catholic principle: "The Bible teaches us how to go to Heaven, not how the heavens go."
It has taken over a decade for the Newpopes to suffer the fallout over their sponsorship of Newchurch-support paedophilia among their Newclergy, but now the dominoes are starting to fall in a row. On June 15, 2015, some of Francis-Bergoglio's highest Newprelates were forced out of office, just nine days after civil authorities charged the Newarchdiocese of St. Paul-Minneapolis, Minnesota, which they ran, with six criminal counts of failing to protect children from "unspeakable harm" and "turning a blind eye" to repeated reports of crimes perpetrated by a presbyter who was later convicted of sex crimes against children. Newarchbishop John Nienstedt and Auxiliary Newbishop Lee Piche, both originally appointed by the Second Paedophile Newpope, now Ex-Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger, decided to resign under fire before they could be charged personally with sex crimes against children. Nienstedt is one of the highest-ranking U.S. Newprelates yet to fall in Newchurch's continuing Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust.
Nienstdt and Piche are the second and third Newbishops to be forced out of the Newepiscopate because of criminal charges surrounding complicity in paedophilia in their Newdioceses. On April 21, 2015, Newbishop Robert Finn of Kansas City-St. Joseph, Missouri, was forced out of the Newepiscopate because of his conviction on charges surrounding complicity in paedophilia in his Newdiocese. Nienstedt in his swan song referred to the "vitality of the 187 [New]parishes" that he had controlled. What Nienstedt covered up in his statement -- all these Newchurch bishops are confirmed cover-up artists after all -- is the fact that since 1950 that number had fallen from 309 -- a drop of 40 per cent from the devastation of the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965).
Newarchbishop Nienstedt shockingly claimed to "leave with a clear conscience," even though he facilitated his presbyter Curtis Wehmeyer, currently doing his penance in the Missouri state penitentiary for sex crimes against two children, with charges for a third currently pending. Prosecutors put the lie to Nienstedt's statement by pointing out that Nienstedt ignored "numerous and repeated reports" of his presbyter's sexual predations against children and transferred him to other Newparishes so that he had access to new victims.

True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio never uttered one word against these predatory Newbishops, but merely "accepted their resignations" with silence. The Three Paedophile Newpopes -- the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla, the "Ex-Newpope" Benedict-Ratzinger, and the "Marxist" Newpope Francis-Bergoglio -- have be involved up to their non-Roman collars running a crime syndicate in Newchurch that has made even the Italian Mafia blush. The Ten Commandments of the Mafia include the truly-Catholic moral principle that women and children are not to be touched. Yet these three Newpopes have stood by while children, whom their Principal, Our Lord Jesus Christ, openly protected, were violated in hideous ways. Truly these three Newpopes well deserve the title "The Three Vile Vicars."
What a sly deceiver Francis-Bergoglio is. First, there was talk of a "common date" for Easter just for the confused Middle East, but in well-known Modernist fashion, he now claims that the idea is "spreading," so that, according to the mendacious Bergoglio: "The world's faithful are asking us to establish a common date for the celebration of Easter." What a lie! When was the last time you heard any Christian ask to change the 2000-year-old date of Easter? It is only the heretical/schismatic Eastern Orthodox, who -- ironically -- don't even recognize Bergoglio as Newpope!
The little known provision contrary to Tradition about changing the traditional Roman date of Easter was sneaked into the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965) as an Appendix entitled "Declaration of the Second Vatican Oecumenical Council on Revision of the Calendar," appended to the anti-Catholic and anti-Traditional document known as the Sacrosanctum Concilium, the same document that ended up destroying the valid Catholic Mass in the Newchurch of the New Order.
The mania of such a notion, which actually opens its advocates to the penalty of excommunication, as prescribed by Pope Victor I (r. 189-199), for all those who fail to comply with the Roman date, which places Easter on the exact date on which Christ arose from the dead, according to the authority of Sts. Peter and Paul. The wisdom of Pope Victor's decree is clearly demonstrated by the current situation in the East, where the heretical/ schismatic Eastern Orthodox have remained split over the issue amongst themselves. In addition to differences in the calculation of Easter, some of the heretical/schismatics use the Gregorian calendar, while others still use the Julian calendar, so that the two dates in the East can be over a month apart between the various Eastern branches.
Catholics were lied to about invalidating the Mess in the vulgar tongues, about Protestantizing the Sacraments into invalidity, about changing the unchangeable principles of Catholic doctrine and morality. As a result, the ersatz Newchurch of the New Order, which is most definitely not the Catholic Church, is losing membership at an ever accelerating rate. Attendance at the "New Mess," which was once touted for its higher participation, is, in many areas of the world, falling into the single digits. Newchurch has not ordained priests since 1968, but only installs presbyters (Protestant-like ministers) to "preside over the assembly of the people." No wonder almost no one wants to be a presbyter in Newchurch, and many of those that are already there are engaged in continuing paedophilia, to which Francis-Bergoglio turns a blind eye.
Naturally, the clergy of the heretical/schismatic Eastern Orthodox sect lauded Bergoglio's openness to changing the traditional date from the Roman one to the Eastern one. The heretical/schismatic Eastern clergy hate anything Roman. They even spit at presbyters in the street, while Bergoglio continues to play anti-Catholic oecumenical games. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by La Stampa.]
True Catholics, whatever is anti-Catholic and anti-Traditional, you can expect the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio to embrace. He is not only a Marxist but a slave of the Modernist Vatican II Council, which ended up changing so many things to invalid Protestantism that the Catholic Church "returned to the catacombs," as Pope Pius XII predicted, and an ersatz "institutional" Newchurch of the New Order was substituted for it by the end of the 1960s.
It could be a ruse meant to confuse, but it does appear that Francis-Bergoglio is losing the power. On a regular basis lately, he says one thing, while his Newpapal spokesman, Federico Lombardi, contradicts him.
The most recent example of these contradictions occurred when Bergoglio told a reporter on the Newpapal plane back from Sarajevo that a decision on the purported "apparitions" at Medjugorje would be coming "soon." Five days later, presbyter Federico Lombardi contracted Bergoglio's statement, saying that a ruling "will most probably take months rather than days or weeks." Who is the Newpope in this picture? Does one Newpapal hand not know what the other one is doing? Or does Lombardi, who has languished in his office since 2006, now have delusions of grandeur?
Lombardi is certainly known for putting his foot in his mouth, lying about his principals, the Newpopes. When he was the mouthpiece for Benedict-Ratzinger he denied, in response to a statement by traditional Catholic bishop Richard Williamson, that Ratzinger had ever been a member of the Hitler Youth. Actually, Ratzinger himself had admitted this fact in his own 1997 book, and photographs of Ratzinger dressed in a Nazi uniform were easily to be found on the internet. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
True Catholics, it is a common phenomenon that as a Newpapacy goes on, it starts to unravel. Just look at what happened to the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla and Benedict-Ratzinger, who eventually had to abdicate. But it has been barely two years under the regime of Francis-Bergoglio, and already the dissolution of the Bergoglio regime is already evident, with Bergoglio himself admitting that he is not going to last for more than another two years.
Oh, that Second Paedophile Newpope, now Ex-Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger, was a crafty one. He could see that his self-proclaimed "Ordinary Mess," better known as the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan (invalid) New Order Mess of 1969, was sinking in attendance, so he concocted his Great "Motu" Mess Hoax, aka as the "Extraordinary Mess." Of course, this Half New Order Vatican II Mess of 1962+ is invalid too, because it is not celebrated by traditional Catholic priests. Instead, it is invalidly simulated by New Order presbyters, who have never been ordained in the Sacrament of Holy Orders, but merely installed as Protestantized ministers to "preside over the [Novus Ordo] assembly of the people."
As if it were a joke -- which it in fact is -- Ratzinger's "Extraordinary Mess" will be staged on June 19, 2015, in Kirksville, Missouri, in a cow patch, which was offered by a local farmer, presumably complete with cow dung. One of the organizers of the Mess had to be joking when he said: "There is a sense of reverence and holiness about the [New Order] Latin Mass." The organizer encouraged the attendees to "bring a lawn chair" from which to observe. Thus, this phony "Latin Mess" -- which is most definitely not a Traditional Latin Mass validly celebrated by a traditional Catholic priest -- patterns itself after several documented "Lawn Chair" Messes in the "Ordinary" style. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Kirksville (Missouri) Daily Express.]
True Catholics, you may run into Newchurchers who claim that these phony "Latin Messes" staged by Newchurch are "traditional." But you can be sure that not a one of them is the Catholic and Apostolic Traditional Latin Mass. No, they are phony Half New Order Vatican II Messes, simulated by invalid presbyters, who have never been ordained as valid priests in the traditional Sacrament of Holy Orders, but merely "installed" in the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini's New Ordinal of 1968, modeled after the invalid rites for installing Protestant ministers. True Catholics always avoid these Newchurch "Latin Messes" because of the sacrilege, blasphemy, and idolatry that they constitute.
Francis-Bergoglio, having been remarking ineffective in governing Newchurch in anything but talk, decided on June 10, 2015, to stray into the political realm, where he has no cache, no authority, no infallibility, no nothing. He took on one of the world's best politicians -- Vladimir Putin -- and was bested, badly, by the Russian President.
Putin has already got Barack Obama in retreat on Crimea and the Ukraine. Now Putin has turned his shrewd political acumen toward Bergoglio, and Bergoglio ended up the loser. Putin knew that Bergoglio was going to stray into international politics and try to twist his arm on the Ukraine issue, which is really none of Bergoglio's business. So Putin put one over on Bergoglio: Putin showed up for the meeting an hour and twenty minutes late. Then, while photographers took their pictures, Putin gave Bergoglio the silent treatment to show him just who is in charge. The meeting was described as "chilly."
As a result, the international headlines for the meeting were not on Bergoglio, but on Putin. "Putin keeps [New]pope waiting." "Awkward Meeting." Thus the headlines screamed. Putin left Bergoglio in a puff of smoke from his black stretch Mercedes limousine, at the head of a 13-vehicle motorcade. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio should keep his nose out of politics. Bergoglio seems to think that he is the head of the United Nations, but he was elected to be the head of Newchurch, with which he has failed miserably. He says that he has only two years left in his Newpapacy, and it doesn't look as if he is going to make an actual dent in either Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust or the Vatican Bank scandal. Bergoglio may put on a pretty smile for propaganda purposes and kiss babies like a secular politician, but he is an absolutely incompetent do-nothing as Newpope.
You've all heard the propaganda. Francis-Bergoglio has brought a new popularity to the Newchurch of the New Order. Don't you believe it! It's all a myth of mendacity.
A case in point. Bergoglio's Newchurch was literally run out of the city on one of the holiest days of the year, Corpus Christi, June 4, 2015. The once-Catholic city of Rimini, Italy, for centuries had publicly celebrated the feast of the Holy Eucharist, extended to the Universal Church in 1264 by Pope Urban IV, as a direct result of a revelation made by our Lord to a nun, Blessed Juliana of Cornillon, that a feast of glory and splendor be established in honor of the Most Blessed Sacrament to combat growing disbelief in the Real Presence.
This year, however, Newchurch decided to concede the day to the God of Football. This year, there will be no traditional public procession in city's piazza, an annual procession that attracted a large crowd to the Piazza Cavour. This year, most Newchurchers will gather in the piazza to worship instead the Champions League Football Final on big screens while they get drunk in the city's bars and pubs. A few diehard Newchurchers, who are too clueless to realize that they have lost the Blessed Sacrament these last fifty years since Newchurch took possession of the "institutional" Church, will relegate themselves to the Newcathedral. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
What was true in 1264 is infinitely more true today: growing disbelief in Real Presents of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Today, however, the situation is worse. In the last half century, the "institutional" Newchurch has lost the Real Presence because, in aftermath of the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965), it dumped the True Mass and True Sacraments, just like the Protestants, and substituted an invalid Protestantized Mess and ministers. The few left in Newchurch who attempt to worship the "Blessed Sacrament" are actually idolaters, "worshipping" an invalid cookie.
True Catholics, the jig is up for Francis-Bergoglio's phony Newchurch of the New Order. Football is the New Religion. And God justly punishes the sin of Newchurch, in the words of St. Paul: "And since they did not see fit to acknowledge God, God gave them up to a debased mind and to things that should not be done" (Romans 1:28/NRSV). Those of you who wonder how Newchurchers could have gone crazy and lost the True Faith, that is your answer.
What an opportunity it would be -- with all the publicity surrounding former Olympian Bruce Jenner's self-mutilation to become a "woman" -- for Francis-Bergoglio to teach the world about the immorality of bodily mutilation. Perhaps because Bergoglio isn't a Catholic, or even a Christian? Perhaps because he is an atheist Marxist who doesn't view even the sodomizing of children by his Newbishops and presbyters as a crime against humanity, but selfishly justifies such crimes before the United Nations Commission on the Rights of the Child?
Protestants don't seem to have a problem calling a spade a spade. A writer for The Blaze wrote an article headlined: "Bruce Jenner Is Not a Woman. He Is a Sick and Delusional Man." The Christian magazine Charisma News ran a story called "Celebrating Confusion: The Crisis of Bruce (Not Caitlyn) Jenner." Even Christian governor/pastor Mike Huckabee razzed Jenner's immorality by saying: "Now I wish that someone told me when I was in high school that I could have felt like a woman when it came time to take showers in P.E. Im pretty sure that I would have found my feminine side and said, 'Coach, I think Id rather shower with the girls today!'"
It would take a true pope to stop in its tracks the rampant immorality in the world today perpetrating mutilation of the body -- which is a sin that binds not just Catholics, not just Christians. Bodily mutilation is a sin against God's Natural Law that binds all human beings. Perhaps someone like Jenner, who isn't satisfied even with dressing in women's clothes, but has to cut off his membrum virile to satisfy his perversion. But how many other people today are mutilating themselves in ways from ripping children out of their own bodies to injecting poisonous ink into their skin to show off some Biblically-condemned "tattoo." For further information, click on FAQ10: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Beliefs? in the section "Tattoos and Body Piercings" in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files: FAQs and Traditional Apologetics department.
True Catholics, weep not for Bruce Jenner. Estimates are that he will reap half a billion dollars off his self-mutilation from all the fees he will receive from his new television "reality show" and probably a Wheaties cereal box. The man for whom you should weep is Francis-Bergoglio, who sits on the side lines encouraging the filthiest of immoral actions and stands condemned by the very Lord Whose vicar he claims to be: "You shall not be as the hypocrites, that love to stand and pray in the synagogues and corners of the streets, that they may be seen by men: Amen I say to you, they have received their reward" (Matthew 6:5/DRV).
As Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch continues to pay the price for continuing sex crimes against children, the Newarchdiocese of St. Paul-Minneapolis was charged by prosecutors on June 5, 2015, with six criminal counts of failing to protect children from "unspeakable harm" and "turning a blind eye" to repeated reports of crimes perpetrated by a presbyter who was later convicted of sex crimes against children. Charges against the Newbishop and individual presbyters involved may follow.
New Order presbyter Curtis Wehmeyer, the perpetrator, is serving five years in prison for sodomizing two boys and is facing prosecution for sodomizing a third boy. Prosecutors say that the Newbishop and his accomplices failed to respond to "numerous and repeated reports" of Wehmeyer's predations from the time when he entered the New Order seminary through 2015. The criminal complaint states that many Newparishioners reported Wehmeyer's crimes, but the Newbishop and his henchmen discounted them in order to protect his filthy Newclergy.
But prosecutors went even further. They exposed Newchurch's zero-tolerance programme as a "sham." Presbyter Wehmeyer was known to loiter frequently in the boys' bathroom at the Newparish school -- parents, don't ever send your children to the immoral Newparochial schools -- and for loitering in a park known for homosexual encounters. The Newarchdiocese's No. 2 man, the Unreverend Kevin McDonough, concealed from Newparishioners Wehmeyer's predations. Although the U.S. Newbishops Conference claimed with their propaganda face to institute a "zero tolerance" policy in 2001, after Newcardinal Bernard Law, of Boston, Massachusetts, was implicated in a massive cover-up of hundreds of sex crimes against children by his perverted presbyters, prosecutors revealed that the Minnosota Newarchdiocese did not report Wehmeyer to civil authorities until 2012.
Criminal charges were previously filed or threatened to be filed by prosecutors against the Newchurch diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, Missouri; the Newchurch diocese of Manchester, New Hampshire; the Newchurch diocese of Phoenix, Arizona; and the Newchurch diocese of Cincinnati, Ohio. In some of these cases, the Newbishops struck plea bargains to avoid public charges of criminal conduct. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order is left with filthy hands in the sexual assaults by its Newbishops and presbyters. Bergoglio has done nothing to stop these vile crimes except to appoint a do-nothing committee, to which he gave no prosecutorial power. Bergoglio has time and time again been exposed as a fraud, while he continues to kiss babies as if he were innocent. Yet as Newchurch's "Top Dog," he is guiltier than anyone -- the Latin for this is Respondeat superior. Bergoglio himself predicts that he will leave this mortal coil just a couple of years hence. Christ the Judge already has the Biblical millstone waiting for the neck of his vile vicar.
The clueless Newchurchers who have stuck with the Newchurch of the New Order thinking that a future Newpope could restore the Catholic Church in place of the New Order sect have been completely fooled -- and now Francis-Bergoglio's most intimate advisor has told them so. Victor Fernandez, who hails from Bergoglio's Argentina, is Bergoglio's most intimate advisor ghost-writer of his documents. Bergoglio appointed Fernandez a Newarchbishop in 2014, and no one could figure out how he deserved the position. Fernandez is only a secondary official of an Argentinean university. It certainly smells like some kind of payoff -- but that would not be unusual for Bergoglio, who appoints even public paedophiles to his Newepiscopate.
This is how Fernandez explained Francis-Bergoglio's devious scheme to radicalize the New Order sect in an interview with a leading Italian daily newspaper, Corriere della Serra, on May 10, 2015:
Fernandez ought to know. He ghost-wrote part of Bergoglio's only "joint encyclical letter," Evangelii Gaudium. Fernandez also wrote the Final Report of the October 2014 "Extraordinary Synod," so that it reflected Bergoglio's pro-"gay" stance, not the anti-"gay" stance that the Synod Fathers voted. Fernandez is also ghost-writing the expected encyclical letter on "global warming."
Fernandez became quite defensive when Corriere della Sera asked him to respond to the criticism that Bergoglio has isolated himself in Newvatican and to the criticism that Bergoglio is organizing a schism. Fernandez admitted that Bergoglio has many opponents in the Newcuria and that a significant "section of society" disagrees with Beroglio, including Newvatican's No. 3 Man, the Prefect of the Congregation of the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith, Newcardinal Gerhard Muller, who now holds the position that the Ex-Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger used to hold.
True Catholics, if one reads between the lines of Francis-Bergoglio's most intimate advisor, things after just two years are going badly for the Newpope. Fernandez even admitted that that if a conclave were held today, the Newcardinals might recant their election of Bergoglio. Many true Catholics have been wondering all along what dementia seized the 2013 Conclave to elect the first "Marxist" Newpope!
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I can't tell you how proud I am of all you good traditional Catholic priests at TRADITIO, who reach millions of souls -- like mine. I have moved to many places in the world over the last fifteen years, and the TRADITIO Traditional Roman Catholic Network has always been there to guide me.
You helped me homeschool two fine children and keep my marriage in one piece. God only knows how many traps have been laid for each of us along the way to Our Lord's promise of eternal salvation. Without TRADITIO's guidance and God's graces, I would have perished years ago. Thanks to each and every one of you fine priests at TRADITIO. I add to you all my prayers each and every day.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
We almost never publish any of the many thousands of laudatory messages that we have received, including those coming from Newchurchers of the New Order, and its the Neocons/Extraordinarians who once sold out to Newchurch, but now say that they have been converted to the traditional Roman Catholic Faith because of TRADITIO's uncompromising, independent commentaries and materials. The TRADITIO Network is one of many means through which Our Lord appears be working out the Traditional Catholic Restoration of the 21st century.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Why do the Newchurchers pay any attention to the Newpopes, who try to suppress the valid Traditional Latin Mass and force Newchurchers into the invalid "Ordinary Mess" of 1969 or the half New Order "Extraordinary Mess" of 1962? Isn't Pope St. Pius V's Bull Quo Primum, canonizing the Catholic and Apostolic Traditional Latin Mass of two millennia "in perpetuity," the infallible word on the subject? Are traditional Catholics "acting like Protestants" when they dispute the New Order, the New Messes, and the Newpopes? Sometimes I don't know what to believe any more!
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
No pope (or Newpope!) has the authority to suppress the bimillennial, canonized Catholic and Apostolic Traditional Latin Mass. Francis-Bergoglio and his Newpope predecessors are scofflaws who don't have enough Catholic education to know that the Papal Bull Quo Primum has always been accepts as an infallible doctrinal document on the Sacraments, being solemnly defined by a dogmatic Council and promulgated "in perpetuity" by a Pope-Saint and, as such, it can never be revoked, any more than the Immaculate Conception or the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, also promulgated in Papal Bulls. If anything, Quo Primum is an even more solemn exercise of infallibility because it is the result of a Dogmatic Council, that of Trent, promulgated by a pope. The two doctrines on Mary did not result from a Dogmatic Council and a pope, but only from a pope.
The notion that traditional Catholics are "acting like Protestants" is one of those statements made by Newchurchers, who are ignorant of the Catholic Faith. (It's not taught in Newchurch, you see.) Actually, this notion is exactly backwards. Traditional Catholics are not acting like Protestants. In fact, it is the unCatholic Newchurchers who are acting like Protestants. Newchurchers have adopted a bastardized, invalid "worship service," which they themselves admit is based primarily upon Protestant models, especially the heretical Lutheran and Episcopalian. Newchurchers have adopted a vile (to use St. Paul's term) and anti-Christian "New Morality" contrary to that expounded in Sacred Scripture. Newchurchers have adopted Protestant doctrines on the priesthood, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, the equality of religions, inter alia. Who are the real Protestants in this picture?
In short, you are making this too complicated. What should you believe? What you have always believed. That is what St. Paul tells the Thessalonians. Memorize the Traditional Motto under the Monstrance and Angels on the TRADITIO: Traditional Roman Catholic Network home page:
We are what you once were.
We believe what you once believed.
We worship as you once worshipped.
If you were right then, we are right now.
If we are wrong now, you were wrong then.
Seek out exclusively the fully Traditional Catholic
Latin Mass, Sacraments, Doctrine, and Morality.
Archbishop Lefebvre, Founder of the Society of St. Pius X, was clear in his stance toward the Newchurch of the New Order: it isn't Catholic; it's a Modernistic fraud. Bernie Fellay, who took over the SSPX shortly after the Archbishop's death in 1992 and turned it into the Neo-SSPX, began to "nuance" and "finesse" that position over the next twenty years as Superior-Dictator, just like a good Novus Ordo bishop following the Modernist Vatican II Council. Because a majority of Fellay's Neo-SSPXers still reject his pro-Newchurch position -- in fact, some one hundred of his 600 priest-presbyters has abandoned him over the issue -- Fellay has been careful to shroud himself falsely in the veil of the Archbishop while at the same time playing the sycophant to the New Order sect and its Newpopes. But now it is Newvatican that has outed him.
One of Newchurch's top leaders, Newcardinal Gerhard Muller, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith, has spilled the beans. He officially put Fellay in charge of trying one of Fellay's own priest-presbyters for high crimes (just guess which!). Fellay, instead of telling Muller where to go, lapped up this crumb of recognition. After all, Fellay is -- forgive the vulgar, but aptly descriptive term -- an "anal retentive," who loves to discipline his people, both lay and clerical. So agree many who have known him intimately. One hundred priest-presbyters have already abandoned him, including some of his Neo-SSPX leaders, and Fellay's martinet attitude is certainly a contributing cause in many of these abandonments.
Fellay himself acknowledged the fact on May 10, 2015, in essence admitting that he had been lying all long to his Neo-SSPXers and to the world since his aborted sell-out of his Neo-SSPX to the New Order sect, claiming after the abortion that he was not against the New Order and its embracing of the Modernist Vatican II Council. Now he has been exposed as skulking around behind the scenes, playing with the likes of Gerhard Muller in the Newchurch sandbox. What is even more revealing is the revelation that several of Fellay's priest-presbyters had previously been charged with high crimes and that Fellay had referred these to the immoral Newpopes and their Newcurial accomplices in Newrome to "adjudicate." Either Fellay was incompetent to take decisive action on his own, or he wanted Newrome to take responsibility for letting the criminals off lightly, as Newrome's ignominy is.

True Catholics, isn't this beginning to sound like the same type of collusion that has exposed as immoral and brought low the Newchurch of the New Order from the top down? One Newpope was apparently forced out of office by threats of exposure, and the current Newpope has already said that he isn't going to last more than four years or so. Fellay is clearly in league with the worst elements of the New Order sect, himself exposed as a viper among a "brood of vipers" (Matthew 3:7/DRV), whereas he has been pulling the wool over the eyes of his sheeple.
Newchurch's own research arm reports that Newchurch is sinking -- much faster than previously thought -- with most Newchurchers living a graceless life without the Sacraments. "Global Catholicism: Trends & Forecasts," released June 1, 2015, by Nwechurch's research arm, the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate at Georgetown University, Washington, D.C., looked at all seven regions of the world. Some of the findings:
True Catholics, Newchurch with Francis-Bergoglio at its head is deeply under water by now. One reader asked us whether the Church would ever regain its footing. Our answer to him was that all Christ promised us was that the Church would last to the end of time. In what form and in what numbers He did not tell us, except to indicate that the number of believers would be small. Traditional Catholics can take comfort from the words of St. Athanasius, Defender of the Faith: "Even if Catholics faithful to Tradition are reduced to a handful, they are the ones who are the true Church of Jesus Christ."
Today, the Traditional Latin Mass goers were admonished by our priest for saying "Amen" after the Pater Noster. I thought I remembered that it was in the invalid New Order service that the "Amen" had been taken out to reduce the Our Father to the Protestant way of saying it so that Newchurch won't offend the Protestants. Should the congregation respond "Amen" after the Pater Noster at the Traditional Latin Mass?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Definitely not. After the priest ends with: "et ne nos inducas in tentationem," the servers answer: "sed libera nos a malo." The priest then says secrete, i.e., in the secret (low) voice: "Amen." This instruction is very clearly indicated in the traditional Missale Romanum.
In fact, at the Traditional Latin Mass, the congregation should not be making any responses at all. The server(s) make all of the responses in the name of the congregation. The so-called "Dialogue Mass" that is used in some places is not traditional, but a Modernistic practice introduced just before the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965) to prepare congregations for the invalid New Order service.

Edward Black presents the historical and liturgical arguments why the so-called Dialogue Mass is not traditional.
It seems that Peter Sanders, member of Newchurch's own Sex Crimes Commission actually took his job seriously -- he wasn't supposed to do that -- and publicly called Newcardinal George Pell, Francis-Bergoglio's financal czar a sexual "sociopath" for his cover-up of his presbyters' sex crimes against children when he was Australia's Newarchbishop of Sydney since 2001. Sanders should know: he was a child victim himself. Under Pell's tenure, Australia experienced an unprecedented wave of sex crimes against children perpetrated by Pell's presbyters.
Sanders finally laid out the whole truth on June 1, 2015. Pell, he said, had a "catalogue of denial" about Newchurch's sex crimes against children, which was "making a mockery" of the Newvatican Commission's work. Pell "has a catalogue of denigrating people, of acting with callousness, cold-heartedness, almost sociopathic -- I would go as far as to say--, this lack of care. Given the position of George Pell as a cardinal of the [New]church and a position of huge authority within the [New]vatican, I think he is a massive, massive thorn in the side of Pope Francis's papacy if he's allowed to remain." Pell's response was to threaten to sue Sanders for exposing the truth.
In Newchurch the last thing you are supposed to do is tell the unvarished truth, as Christ did. "His Eminence" [sic] Pell is now threatening to sue Sanders. This in spite of the fact that Australia's Royal Commission, convoked to investigate, inter alia, Pell's conduct, has heard account after account of the most vile crimes against children, such as presbyters raping every boy in a Newchurch orphanage, while Newchurch nuns told the children that if they didn't do what the presbyters wanted, they would go to Hell. One presbyter was convicted of raping 140 children. Pell himself has been personally charged with trying to silence an abused child by the payment of a bribe.
The Royal Commission into Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse was formed in April 2013, following pressure from lawmakers amid police claims that Newchurch and its leaders, such as Pell, had concealed evidence of paedophile presbyters and had transferred their known paedophile presbyters from Newparish to Newparish in order to conceal their crimes.
True Catholics, nothing has changed in Newchurch. If anything, things have gotten far worse under Francis-Bergoglio, who has been caught appointing paedophiles as Newbishops and leaders for his New Order sect, while he himself plays the victim with the press. Bergoglio, Pell, and their ilk well deserve Christ's stark condemnation as "outwardly appear[ing] to men beautiful, but within are full of dead men's bones and of all filthiness" (Matthew 23:28/DRV).
Instead of standing up for Catholicism, the once-Catholic, but now the New Order sect's Saint Louis University, of St. Louis, Missouri, and Madrid, Spain, removed on May 25, 2015, an historical statue on its Missouri campus depicting a famous Jesuit missionary priest praying over American Indians. The anti-Catholic Newchurch students and faculty complained that the sculpture symbolized "white supremacy, racism and colonialism." The University did not retort that Catholicism is not racist, but brought Jesus Christ to the pagan Indians -- just as the Bible says that we are all to do. Oh, no!
The statue featuring famous 19th-century (traditional) Jesuit Missionary Pierre-Jean De Smet, called the "Apostle of the Rockies" praying over two American Indians dressed in traditional clothing has edified the University for decades. But the Marxist students and faculty claimed: "This message to American Indians is simple: You do not belong here if you do not submit to our culture and our religion." Well, isn't that right? If you want to go a Catholic university, you should be Catholic, or at least remain open to the possibility. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Missouri City Newsline.]
(Traditional) Jesuit missionary activities were portrayed in an excellent 1991 Canadian-Australian film, Black Robe. The Jesuits in the 17th-century traveled to the wilderness of Quebec to bring the faith to the pagan and often savage Indian tribes. Some scenes of the torture that the missionaries endured from the Indians are quite graphic (appropriately in this case) in showing the sufferings of the North American Jesuit Martyrs.

But Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch recognizes as martyrs only the likes of Oscar Romero, a Marxist Newbishop and anti-Catholic "Liberation Theology" extremist, who was killed at a Novus Ordo dinner table because of his interference in conservative secular governments, which the Newjesuits wanted to take over by armed uprisings.
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order and the Marxist extremists that control it are in lock-step with the Marxist playbook for wiping out Christ, Christianity, and God from the face of the earth. And we have to acknowledge that they have been remarkably successful to date, mostly because Newchurchers are not Catholic and stand by mute while these Modernist/Liberalist injustices against Christ and the Catholic Faith occur. They are getting exactly what they deserve: a state takeover of their religious schools in the United States, in Europe, and elsewhere.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I have a Catholic friend who tells me that they have a Catholic cemetery that is separate from the Protestant cemetery. I asked him why Protestants cannot be buried in a Catholic cemetery, and he didn't have an answer, especially when the Bible says that God is not a "respecter of persons."
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
I can imagine how frustrating it is when a Newchurcher has no idea of Catholic teaching, especially when the true Catholic Faith, properly understood, is solidly founded upon the logic of the greatest philosophers and theologians in history. We would hope that if you had asked your question not of a Newchurcher, who is not a true Catholic, but of a traditional Catholic, you would have gotten a proper answer. Protestants are denied ecclesiastical in a Catholic cemetery because adherents to Protestant sects are considered heretics (Codex Iuris Canonici 1240). A heretic is one who denies at least one dogma of the true Christian Faith. Protestants deny many dogmata.
Moreover, you have to very careful about using "translations" of the Bible. That is why the Church in the past wisely suppressed many of them, which were grossly inaccurate. If you want to understand accurately the meaning of the New Testament, you must take the trouble to study it in the Greek, which was, after all, the language in which Our Lord saw fit to transmit His teachings. Otherwise, you are reading, to use St. Paul's phrase, "through a glass in a dark manner."
The phrase "respecter of persons" does not at all mean what you erroneously seem to think. The Greek word in question, prosopolemptes, has, of course nothing to do with Protestants and Catholics, as we now call them. Until the early 16th century, there were no "Protestants."
A prosopolemptes is one who acts differently toward different people because of their station in life. Our Lord was frequently described in this way in Scripture because it did not matter to Him whether one was a poor man or a wealthy Pharisee. Therefore, He is often quoted in Scripture as praising the poor man and denouncing the Pharisee, who headed the Church. On matters of faith and morals, to the contrary, Christ was an outspoken "disrespecter of persons," condemning outright the unjust, the unhumble, and the hypocrite.
A losing Australian rugby team turned to Newchurch to raise the team from its scoring slump by staging the "Rabbit" Mess. Presbyter Jersey performed the sacrilege, with Reggie "the Rabbit," the team's mascot, "con"-celebrating, at St. Michael's Novus Ordo Temple in Daceyville, South Sydney, on the feastday of the Prince of the Heavenly Host. The losing team is the Sydney Rabbitohs. The Mess was complete with the Rabbitohs' victory song as the "recessional," as Reggie and Jersey ("the Cow"?) pranced and waved their way from the Novus Ordo dinner table, where invalid cookies and Kool-Aid had been enjoyed by all. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Sydney Morning Herald.]
True Catholics, any notion at this point that any Newchurch Mess whatsoever -- whether "Ordinary" or "Extraordinary" -- is anything but invalid, sacrilegious, and blasphemous is nonsense. Yet the Newchurchers, including the Neocon Newchurchers and Pseudo-traditionalist Newchurchers irrationally cling to this nonsense like madmen! Newchurch with its sacrilegious Messes and unordained presbyters clearly fits the description of St. Peter himself in his Second Epistle (2:22/DRV): "canis reversus ad suum vomitum" [the dog returns to his own vomit].
