When it comes to traditional Catholics, Francis "The Hypocrite" Bergoglio has none of his fabricated "mercy." Atheists, homosexuals, divorced and remarried bigamists, Communists, even Novus Ordo-bent Bernie Fellay and his pseudo-traditional Neo-SSPX -- all these receive his anti-Christian "mercy." True Catholics, i.e., traditional Catholics, the vile-mouthed Bergoglio calls names: "doctrinaire, ideologue, rigid, ritualistic, rigorous, scary, closed in the past, Pelagian, Donatist, neurotic, pious, fundamentalist, obstinate.
On April 25, 2016, Bergoglio, who resides in the Five-star Hilton doppelganger called Domus santae Marthae, rather than in the humble Apostolic Apartment, ran off at the mouth again and called traditional Catholics, for that matter even "conservative" Christians, "rebels and idolaters." Bergoglio ranted: "Christians who say 'it's always been done that way' ... are idolaters and rebels."
Ironically, Bergoglio's screed comes at a time when there are again increasing reports, previously discussed in these Daily Commentaries, that Bernie Fellay thinks is ready to sign on the dotted line for a sellout to the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order, headed by the Marxist Newpope. But Fellay's Neo-SSPX has de facto not been a traditional Catholic organization since the beginning of the millennium. Fellay & Co. split from the traditional Catholic Society of St. Pius X, founded by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre in 1970. Fellay has rejected most of the Archbishop's traditional Catholic positions, including the declaration that Newchurch is not the "Eternal Rome" of the Catholic Church, but some kind of phony "Modernist Rome."
To the contrary, Fellay is chafing at the bit to become the head of another Opus Dei, a semi-secret New Order cult that has a Newpapal "personal prelature" known for its revolutionary, new, secular Theology of the Laity, together with the principle of Indifferentism ("all religions are equal," "we all worship the same god"), both long condemned by the Catholic Church. For further information, click on FAQ10: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Beliefs? in the section "Opus Dei" in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files: FAQs and Traditional Apologetics department.

True Catholics, the reality is that it is Francis-Bergoglio himself who is the rebel and idolater. He spits at Apostolic Tradition, preaches against Catholic morality, and munches on the Novus Ordo cookie and swills the Novus Ordo Kool-Aid, which is no different from Protestant crackers and grape juice. It is impossible to see His Marxist Unholiness as anything other than a heretic clothed in white.
After Francis-Bergoglio suspended the external auditor of Newvatican without even telling his CFO, Newcardinal George Pell, who had originally contracted with the world-renowned firm of Price-Waterhouse-Cooper to get to the bottom of Newvatican corruption under the Bergoglio regime. Pell has now fired back, calling Bergoglio essentially a liar for saying that the contract wasn't legally valid because Beroglio's Secretary of State, Pietro Parolin, didn't approve it. Pell dismissed Bergoglio's fabrication by pronouncing: "The contract with PwC was drawn up by the Council for the Economy, which as its Statutes [promulgated by Bergoglio himself] clearly state, is the body in charge of nominating external auditors." Undaunted, Pell is pressing forward with his attempt to hold Newvatican offices, and their head, Francis-Bergoglio, accountable for their financial dealings.
It is obvious that there is now bad blood between Francis-Bergoglio and Pell. When he was appointed on February 24, 2014, as Prefect of the Economy, essentially Newvatican's Chief Financial Officer, George Pell was "the fair-haired boy." But he did too good a job. He actually tried to clean up Newvatican's cooked books with an impartial external audit by a world-renowned accounting firm. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
Good Catholics, for all his talk about cleaning up Newvatican's financial corruption, Bergoglio "The Hypocrite" really doesn't want it done. He only wanted to talk about it being done. He has acted in the hypocritical same way with his Paedophile Commission. After just three years it is clear that Bergoglio is one of those hypocrites, damned by Our Lord Jesus Christ so harshly as "hypocrites, because you are like to whited sepulchres, which outwardly appear to men beautiful but within are full of dead men's bones and of all filthiness. So you also outwardly indeed appear to men just: but inwardly you are full of hypocrisy and iniquity" (Matthew 23:27-28/DRV)." What could be a better description to damn Bergoglio than God's own words?
On April 19, 2016, a canonical inquiry was opened under the Francis Bergoglio regime on the life of Dorothy Day, the Marxist-sympathizer and founder of the so-called Catholic Worker Movement, with an eye to Day's con-anization by the Newchurch of the New Order. The Polish Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla had already in 2000 scandalously declared her a "Servant of God." Servant of the Devil is more like it.
In fact, Dorothy Day was a virtual Marxist, who supported extremist leftists in twentieth-century conflicts. Day's paper, the so-called Catholic Worker, was the only Catholic publication at the time to support the anti-Catholic Republican forces during the Spanish Civil War, when priests were being murdered, and nuns were being raped by the Spanish Republicans. One might conclude that Day would today support the persecution and murder of Christians at the hands of the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) with her same immoral squint.
The Communist-sympathizer Day was also a staunch supporter of the Communist Fidel Castro. She even went so far as to excuse the murderous Castro's frequent use of firing squads on the immoral grounds that Castro's revolution was "for the poor." Day publically advocated various Communist regimes linked to the Soviet Union, even though they consisted of of anti-Catholic, atheist governments whose public policy was the firing squad. Nevertheless, the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops, which is becoming increasingly Leftist itself, has lauded Day's "work for peace and justice," which included her approval of mass murders by Marxist revolutionaries! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
True Catholics, it seems that Dorothy Day would be the perfect Newsaint for Francis-Bergoglio to con-anize. Her Marxist credentials are impeccable. For Bergoglio, himself a Marxist in word and deed, he would be promoting a fellow renegade.
Sounding like the proverbial deaf, dumb, and blind monkeys, Francis-Bergoglio claimed to the international press on his April 22, 2016, flight back from his junket to the Isle of the Lesbians to have forgotten the most controversial sentence in his Apostolic Exhortation, The Joy of Sex -- the unofficial English translation is The Joy of Love, but the Latin word amor in the official title, Amoris laetitia, can actually bear the meaning "sexual love."
So, either Bergoglio is so steeped in lying by this time that he feigned ignorance of his own document, or he is having another cerebral apoplexy. One can recall the recent reports that he has a brain tumor.
The sentence, contained at Note 351, concerns the anti-Biblical, anti-Catholic permission for bigamist Newchurchers, commonly called the divorced and civilly (i.e., null and void) remarried -- to commit sacrilege and blasphemy by munching the invalid Novus Ordo cookie and swilling the Novus Ordo Kool-Aid. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Lifesite News.]
True Catholics, the Bible, which trumps any pope, puts it unequivocally this way: "Therefore whosoever shall eat this bread, or drink the chalice of the Lord unworthily, shall be guilty of the body and of the blood of the Lord" (1 Corinthians 11:27/DRV). Now, if that quotation had been placed in the note, we might have some notion that the document was actually Catholic -- instead of a Newchurch fraud!
The conservative Newchurch group called Tradition, Family, and Property, regardless of the name "tradition" in its title, is just as wrongheaded about what is Catholic as are the Modernist/Liberalists. That is why one has to be careful not to be deceived by false titles. The worst deceit is the word "Catholic" on the anti-Catholic temples of the Newchurch of the New Order, which has no Catholic Mass or Sacraments within. This sect, currently headed by Francis-Bergoglio, hates true Catholicism and simply uses the word to pilfer money from the pockets of the clueless Newchurchers therein.
Now it seems that Satanists in Oklahoma City want to stage in August 2016 another "Black Mess," a term that is used for a Mess that is based on worship of Satan. The last time that a Black Mess was staged in Oklahoma City, only about two dozen people attended. So TFP has taken on with a petition drive a solitary "Black Mess" for two dozen people and stands idly by while millions of people are ensnared in the phony and evil "New Mess."
TFP claims that the Oklahoma City "Black Mess" is headed by a registered sex offender, but it conveniently puts on blinders rather than admit that the Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio are all accomplices in supporting the widespread paedophile crimes that are now well established in Newchurch? The Satanists don't hold a candle in comparison to Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters who have raped, sodomized, and sexually assaulted hundreds of thousands of children.
The Satanists and their two dozen followers are at least honest about what they are doing. The anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order, on the other hand, spreads the blasphemous, idolatrous, and sacrilegious poison of its Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New Mess" to millions of Newchurchers by fraud and deceit, pretending to be what it is most definitely not: the valid Holy Sacrifice of the Catholic Mass. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Christian Daily.]
True Catholics, you all understand how Satan operates. You hear it every Sunday in the Leonine Prayers after Low Mass (Newchurch dumped this prayer at the time of the Vatican II Anti-council): "contra nequitiam et insidias Diaboli," the wickedness and snares of the Devil. This is the true mark of the Devil, to ensure men by fraud and deceit. The result is what the Leonine Prayers go on to say: "perditionem animarum," the destruction of souls. The New Order and its invalid, Novus Ordo Mess have destroyed millions of souls with its fraud and deceit. Yet the clueless Newchurchers, including the conservative Neocons, don't dare to take on this "Father of All Lies."
The world has once again been faced with the fact that not only is Francis-Bergoglio incompetent but corrupt as well. Like his fellow socialist Barack Obama in the United States, he has essentially given up performing the duties of his office. On April 20, 2016, Bergoglio ordered that the thorough external audit of his Vatican Bank by the distinguished U.S. accounting firm of Price-Waterhouse-Coopers be immediately halted.
Bergoglio has thus dealt a death-blow to efforts to reform his corrupt Vatican Bank, which is still awash in mismanagement and corruption and is under investigation by the European Union for money-laundering and Mafia connections. Bergoglio's move is also a slap in the face to his Chief Financial Officer (Secretary of the Economy), Newcardinal George Pell, who had reported that Bergoglio's bank had seriously undervalued assets and engaged in outlandish unsupervised spending. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
True Catholics, when the College of Newcardinals elected Jorge Bergoglio as Newpope, they gave him two instructions: clean out the paedophiles and clean up the Vatican Bank. Bergoglio has utterly failed on both counts in three years. His record during these three years has been abysmal -- all talk and no action, and even worse -- corruption. If Bergoglio were the Chief Executive Officer of a well-run company instead of the mismanaged Newvatican, he would be fired for incompetence and corruption.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Given that the present Newpope and his Newclergy are illegitimate beyond doubt, I have gone over to the sede-vacantist position (that the Apostolic See is vacant) and do not recognize Francis-Bergoglio as legitimate. As to Bernie Fellay, the Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX, his machinations to sell out to the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order have been going on for many years. If Archbishop Lefebvre were alive today, he would ignore the false "authorities" of what he called the anti-Catholic Modernist Rome. Yes, things are bad for the Church, but that is how God shows his anger -- by giving us the bad leaders that we deserve.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Archbishop Lefebvre was a wise and prudent man, who was personally present at the Vatican II Anti-council and knew all the Modernists, like Josef Ratzinger (later styled Benedict) and Hannibal Bugnini, who were scheming to replace the Catholic Church as the "institutional Church" with a Newchurch, which the Modernists in fact did accomplish in 1964.
In 1988, the Archbishop finally broke with the anti-Catholic Newchurch and talked about reverting to the Traditional Latin Mass (pre-1956) in place of the Half New Order Mess of 1962, which he never completely accepted. The Archbishop wrote in his last year, 1991, that if things got any worse, the sede-vacantist theory, which he never rejected completely as a theory, would become a probable conclusion.
We concur in that the current situation of the Church is a test, and the pseudo-traditional Catholics like Bernie Fellay and his Neo-SSPX (the Archbishop's SSPX doesn't exist any longer) are failing the test badly -- a good explanation for why the current intolerable situation will persist for a good long while.
Is it just possible that the "Francis Effect" and Francis-Bergoglio's purported popularity are all just horsefeathers, more false propaganda spit out by his Newvatican media machine? Is it just possible that Liberalist/Socialists like Barack Obama and Bernie Sanders, the U.S. Democratic Presidential candidate, love him, but Bergoglio's own Newchurchers are actually cool to him? A recent Reuters poll would seem to indicate so.
When U.S. Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump, who advocates a wall at the U.S.-Mexican border and a temporary moratorium on foreign Mohammedans entering the United States, took on Francis-Bergoglio for intruding into secular politics and suggesting that the United States should have open borders, Trump shot back that the Newpope didn't know what he was talking about. And by the way, Trump asked, is Bergoglio blind to the fact that his own Newvatican is surrounded by substantial walls?
When Trump took on the "sacrosanct" Bergoglio on February 18, 2016, many of the talking-heads in the media predicted that Trump was doomed. But now the results are in. Trump won big among U.S. Newchurchers, and Bergoglio lost. Support for Trump rose among Newchurch Republicans has significantly risen, not fallen, since the confrontation. These Newchurchers were scandalized when Bergoglio suggested that Trump, an avowed and practicing Presbyterian, was not a Christian. Scandalously, Bergoglio pontificated: "A person who thinks only about building walls, wherever they may be, and not building bridges, is not Christian." Trump retorted: "It is disgraceful for the [New]pope to judge another's faith in God."
But a Reuters poll of 1,117 Newchurch-going Republicans showed that Trump's support among Newchurch Republicans has risen sharply since his taking on Bergoglio: from 39% to 50% in just 50 days. So publicly embarrassed was Bergoglio from being called out by Trump that he did the unthinkable: Bergoglio apologized for his sin of tongue by apologizing to Trump! The Reuters poll showed that Newchurchers who heard Bergoglio's negative comments about Trump were not swayed, but quite the opposite. Even Newchurch clergy are saying that Bergoglio's negative comments about Trump has backfired with Newchurchers. One presbyter said: "That comment hurt his credibility with my parishioners." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
True Catholics, it is not only Francis-Bergoglio who is out of step with their ordinary Newchurch Republicans in the United States, who by a wide margin support Trump over his primary opponents, Ted Cruz, a Southern Baptist, and John Kasich, a Protestant Anglican. Newchurch presbyters and Newbishops in the United States have contributed to the radical Evangelical Cruz, by 222 times more!
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Newvatican officials have told some of Bernie Fellay's priest-presbyters here in Asia that Fellay already signed a deal with Newrome to sell out the Neo-SSPX to the New Order sect in July 2015. Newrome is simply waiting for an opportune time to publish the deal. The substance of the deal is included in the following New Order propositions agreed to by Fellay:
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Whether this particular report is true or not, it is clear that Fellay has, since the election of Francis-Bergoglio, been careening toward a sellout of his Neo-SSPX to the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order. Why he seems even more determined under the regime of the Marxist Francis-Bergoglio, who is deliberately destroying every vestige of Catholicism and replacing it with a Modernist/Liberalist/Marxist secular "green gospel" is inexplicable, unless we recognize what people who best know Fellay say about him: he is mad for power and will sell out anyone and anything to obtain it for himself. The man is an abyss of ambition. He wants to be the Superior-Dictator not only of the Neo-SSPX, but also of all other Newchurch pseudo-traditionalist organizations around the world.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
A Jewish friend invited me to attend the Jewish Passover Seder. As a traditional Catholic, am I permitted to attend this function? He did inform me that certain Jewish prayers will be recited.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
You can answer such questions for yourself by analogy: as if a Protestant friend asked you to attend a Protestant communion. Of course, the answer is no. The New Order loves to syncretize with other false religions as if they are all the same, what they call "oecumenism," a false doctrine formulated at the the Vatican II Anti-council. This is blasphemy, a serious violation of the First Commandment of God.
You can, of course, be polite in declining the invitation, thanking him for the invitation, but using it as a teaching moment to explain that as a Catholic you cannot actively participate in the services of another religion, which would be for you a violation of the First Commandment. Because the Jews have that Commandment too, the person should readily understand. In no case should you get into an argument or become defensive about the matter. Simply state your position and remain firm about it.
What a hypocrite this Francis-Bergoglio is! He has his fabled "mercy" for abortionists, for Mohammedan terrorists, and for European invaders, but when he is accused by many for meddling in secular politics, he lashes out at them and says that they "should see a psychiatrist." Bergoglio's policy is mercy for terrorists, Marxists, and atheists, but he badmouths real Catholics for being, and we quote his own words: "doctrinaire, ideologue, rigid, ritualistic, rigorous, scary, closed in the past, Pelagian, Donatist, neurotic, pious, fundamentalist, and obstinate." That's a lot of "mercy" he's dealing out!
The specific reason that Bergoglio is now being lambasted by even his own Newchurchers is that he had a secular political meeting with U.S. Presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, an avowed Socialist (and perhaps fellow Marxist). After Bergoglio was pilloried for his political interference, he tried to do damage control on April 16, 2016, saying, "It's crazy to see my meeting with Bernie Sanders as political." He shot back at his critics, dripping with the "mercy" that he claims to have: "You should look for a psychatrist!"
Let's look at the facts. This was no cursory Newpapal handshake with the candidate Sanders, as Bergoglio now mendaciously claims. No, Sanders and his third wife were put up for the night in a room next to Bergoglio's own in the St. Martha's Five-star Hotel in Newvatican, where Bergoglio lives instead of living in the Apostolic Apartments, as real popes have done in the past.
Actually, Sanders has had two wives and a "domestic partner." He lived on a kibbutz, where he married his first wife and divorced her in just two years. Then he shacked up with a second woman, whom he didn't bother to marry and had a bastard child by her, Levi. Then in 1988 he married his second "wife." Sanders isn't even a Catholic -- correction -- a Newchurcher, but is a non-observant, secular Jew. A close friend described him in this way: "They [the Sanderses] were very pleased to be Jews, but didn't have a strong belief in God." His residence with Bergoglio at the Newvatican hotel and his political meeting with Mr. Hypocrisy were widely judged to be a pitch by Sanders for the Newchurch vote. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
True Catholics, has it never occurred to the "Hypocrite Newpope" that he is his own worst enemy? If he kept out of secular politics, he wouldn't be hit broadside with these criticisms of meddling. But as a Marxist, Bergoglio has rejected the Catholic Faith, so all he has left is politics. He's more interested in going to the Isle of the Lesbians on a political mission to bring hordes of illegals back into Europe. He goes about his religious duties in a slovenly, uncaring, and effete way. It is clear that he merely goes through the motions with not a gram of Faith.
The Catholic faithful need to be aware that the number of pseudo-traditionalists and their heretical notions are increasing. Thus, we provide this list of anti-Catholic notions that one hears from such individuals and organizations that will immediately identify them to you as New Order-connected pseudo-traditionalists, not traditional Catholics. THE FOLLOWING NOTIONS ARE ALL FALSE.
True Catholics, if you deny each and every one of the false and heretical statements above, you are stil Catholic. If you entertain even one of them, you could already have crossed into heresy. The teaching of the Church is that if you are heretical in one thing, you are heretical in all things. For further information, click on FAQ03: Should I Ever Attend Newchurch's "Ordinary" or "Extraordinary" Messes?
A secret letter by an Neo-SSPX official revealing an impending sellout of Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX to the Newchurch of the New Order was leaked on April 16, 2016. The contents of this letter shocked many Neo-SSPXers, who, even to this point, have blinded themselves to the handwriting on the wall, that Bernie Fellay has turned his back completely upon Archbishop Lefebvre's original, traditional principles and his Society of St. Pius X. Fellay's breakaway Neo-SSPX organization is not traditional, but now Novus Ordo in spirit, and Fellay is expected to bolt to the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio at the earliest opportunity.
The purported author of the secret letter, dated February 19, 2016, was Franz "Sellout" Schmidberger, one of Neo-SSPX Superior-Dictator Bernie Fellay's main henchmen and Rector of the NSSPX's German Seminary. It undoubtedly reflects the position of Fellay himself, but Fellay wanted Schmidberger's name on it in case the trial balloon burst when the Neo-SSPXers found out about the treachery. The "Considerations on the Church and the Society's [that is, Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX] Position within the Church" details in three pages the arguments why the Neo-SSPX should sell out and become subservient to the Newchurch of the New Order.
Schmidberger first explains why Fellay's Neo-SSPX is easing up on its criticism of the Vatican II Anti-council and the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New Mess," which heretical abomination Fellay now holds to be perfectly valid. Fellay's position is contrary to that of Archbishop Lefebvre, who was personally present at Vatican II and fought its heretical documents. One wonders why, if the "New Mess" were valid, the Archbishop spent three decades fighting it by founding the original, traditional Society of St. Pius X. It appears that for Fellay and Schmidberger, the Archbishop's fight for the Catholic Faith was a colossal waste of time and money! Lefebvre should never have founded the original SSPX and just given in to the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order, which replaced the Catholic Church as the "institutional Church" in 1964.
Schmidberger argues (obviously speaking for Fellay) that the Neo-SSPX should sell out to the New Order sect to regain "normality." Invalid Newbishops could then be installed -- the New Order has not consecrated bishops in the Sacrament of Holy Orders since 1968 -- to become subservient to the New Order. Oh, well, they might throw in a little Latin and wear fancy vestments to fool the clueless Neo-SSPXers.
Schmidberger argues that the Neo-SSPX, if it becomes subservient to the Newchurch, can "convert" the Newchurch officials. Schmidberger is, of course, blind to the fact that Fellay's Neo-SSPX already uses Novus Ordo presbyters at some of its locations and reportedly uses the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II Mess of 1962 at some sites with Novus Ordo modifications to the Mess. This practice is also intended to "soften up" the clueless Neo-SSPXers to embrace the New Order. Fellay will certainly not convert Newchurch officials away from the New Order to which the Neo-SSPX has itself already been converted.
True Catholics, we TRADITIO Fathers have been demonstrating in these Daily Commentaries since the turn of the millennium Bernie Fellay's carefully-planned sellout of Archbishop Lefebvre's original, traditional Society of St. Pius X to the New Order sect, which the Archbishop condemned as heretical. Fellay is shrewdly using the same technique that the implementers of the Vatican II Anti-council, like the Chief Destructor of the Sacred Liturgy, Hannibal Bugnini, did: insinuate the anti-Catholic changes very gradually, so that the Neo-SSPX frogs don't know to jump out of the slowly-warming pot. Instead, to mix a metaphor, Fellay is cooking their goose! Nevertheless, Fellay has already lost nearly one out of five of his priests, who have abandoned him and his scheme to take his clueless Neo-SSPXers to dance with the Novus Ordo Devil before they wise up.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
We now have Newcardinal Raymond "Bully" Burke's response to the provisional version of Francis-Bergoglio's anti-Catholic "Apostolic Exhortation" Amoris laetitia, which has yet to be released in its authentic Latin version. Burke has said publicly that the document is not an act of the magisterium and therefore does not require assent by Newchurchers. He says that it is only the reflections of Bergoglio about the Synod, 250 pages of musings and nothing more.
What we are seeing here is the retreat of the clueless Neocon and pseudo-traditionalist Newchurchers in response to the "Francis Deformation." They have chickened out of the fight for the Faith. They don't want to keep the true Faith and so lose the property and cash. Man does not live by faith alone, but by every dollar that proceedeth out of the Vatican Bank!
It remains to be seen whether other supposed opponents of Bergoglio will take this route. What we can say is that Burke, whom these same clueless Neocon Newchurchers regard as a "conservative lion" is really nothing of the sort, just as the TRADITIO Fathers been saying ever since the Joel-Judy Green Affair. Bishops, like Burke, who pretend to consecrate "trangendered" males as Newchurch "nuns," can hardly be called Catholic by any account.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
True Catholics, we pulled the covers off the fraudulent Burke from the time that as Newbishop he consecrated a "transgendered" male as a Newchurch "nun" in LaCrosse, Wisconsin. Then he moved as Newarchbishop to St. Louis, Missouri, where he tried by intimidation and extortion to steal a self-funded traditionalist-leaning parish. His actions, eventually ruled illegal, from which he acquired the eponymn "Bully" Burke, were such an embarrassment that he was fired and scuttled off by Benedict-Ratzinger as a virtual prisoner to reside within the hefty walls of Vatican City, where he could be watched. Burke even botched this arrangement and was fired by Francis-Bergoglio and ignominiously demoted to become chaplain on the little island of Malta, a position far beneath a cardinal.
The demented Burke goes prancing around in cappa magna and galero like an old-fashioned cardinal, which the clueless Neocons and pseudo-traditionalists love, but then he strips down and puts on his regular Novus Ordo garb. The clueless people don't want to acknowledge that fact. If they did, they would have to admit that the Newchurch of the New Order and its Newpopes are an anti-Catholic fraud.
Bernie Fellay, Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX, which broke away in 1994 from Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre's original traditional Catholic Society of St. Pius X in order to cozy up to the heretical Newchurch of the New Order, has again showed that he and his pseudo-traditional NSSPX will be no different from the bishops and clergy of England who joined with the heretic/schismatic Henry VIII to fabricate the heretic/schismatic "Church of England" (Anglican sect).
Fellay announced on April 10, 2016, in Puy-en-Velay, France, that Francis-Bergoglio had, at the secret backdoor meeting held on April 2, 2016, as previously reported in these Daily Commentaries from the TRADITIO Fathers, thrown Fellay a crumb to join the Newchurch of the New Order, scilicet, an extension of the non-existent Novus Ordo "faculties" to absolve abortionists from their grave sin. Like the canine whelps mentioned in Sacred Scripture, Fellay was only too ready accept the non-existent jurisdiction of the New Order and to play slave to his canine master, Bergoglio: "the whelps also eat of the crumbs that fall from the table of their masters" (Matthew 15:27/DRV). The rub is that the heretical Bergoglio has no power to allocate "faculties" that he himself does not have. In addition to his public heresy, Bergoglio was neither ordained a priest not consecrated a bishop in the Sacrament of Holy Orders, which was dumped by Newchurch in 1968 in favor of the invalid Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968.
To the contrary, Archbishop Lefebvre publicly maintained that the Newchurch of the New Order had nothing Catholic to impart to anyone. He contrasted what he called "Eternal Rome," that is, the true Roman Catholic Church of 2,000 years, with what he called "Modernist Rome," that is, the Protestantized Newchurch that replaced the Catholic Church as the "institutional Church" on November 21, 1964. Traditional Catholic priests already have faculties that come as part of the Postestas Ordinum (Power of Orders), as they have been ordained in the valid, traditional Sacrament of Holy Orders. Newchurch presbyters have not -- and Francis-Bergoglio himself is one of these unordained presbyters. According to the fundamental principle of Canon Law: "Nemo dat quod non habet" (no one can give what he does not possess).
True Catholics, even the demented Fellay recently admitted that the "Apostolic Exhortation" Amoris laetitia, released on April 8, 2016, only in a vernacular version, but still not released in its official Latin form, makes him weep, one presumes because it is so contrary to Catholic doctrine and morality. Yet Fellay is like the proverbial fly drawn to the light of the candle that will kill him: Fellay has now fallen so far into the abyss that he cannot cease and desist from dancing with the man who has been characterized as the "Marxist Devil." The words of condemnation uttered by Our Lord on the way to Calvary can be applied to Fellay: "Weep not over me; but weep for yoursel[f]" (Luke 23:28/DRV).
Does the hybris of Newchurch never end? The Newarchdiocese of Hartford, Connecticut, operated a cesspool of perverted presbyters who raped, sodomized, and sexually assaulted children under their care. But insurance companies in the United States refuse to pay off corrupt Newchurch bishops and their Newdioceses for criminal acts.
In Hartford, as in many other Newchurch dioceses, it's never about the child victims. It's always about power and money. Newchurch doesn't want to pay just compensation to the child victims for its crimes. No, it wants insurance companies to pay for its crimes. The Hartford Newdiocese and its Newbishop, Leonard Blair, went to court on April 8, 2016, to try to force Interstate Fire & Casualty to pay over one million dollars to support Newchurch's own crimes. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
True Catholics, these Newchurch dioceses and their bishops absolutely refuse to take responsibility for their crimes. That is why Newchurch has little remaining moral authority, and its Newpopes, who have not lifted a finger to stop the continuing predations of children, are suffering public opprobrium. One of them, Benedict-Ratzinger, was forced to abdicate because he wouldn't stop the assaults, but instead blamed the children! His successor as Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio, has essentially done nothing but talk. No wonder Newchurch membership is dropping like the Biblical millstone!
On April 6, 2016, a United States District Court judge ordered the cross removed from San Gabriel Arcangel Mission, founded in 1771 by the Franciscan Friar Junípero Serra, which was the birthplace of the city that was later to be called Our Lady, Queen of the Angeles (Los Angeles). This mission had been depicted with five other symbols of the city in the official seal of the County of Los Angeles. Even though the cross on the mission can barely be seen in the seal, it was offensive to Jews, Mohammedans, and atheists, so it had to go, even though the original 1957 county seal displayed a much more visible cross floating above the Hollywood Bowl. The new design was substituted in 2014.
One county supervisor said that he would support appealing the ruling, which he said "ignores historical and architectural reality. As any California fourth-grade student knows, the San Gabriel Mission is an important icon to the region and the birthplace of Los Angeles County. The city of San Luis Obispo and the counties of Ventura and San Benito also have missions with crosses on their seals."
True Catholics, even Francis-Bergoglio doesn't stand up for the Catholic Faith, but sells it down the river in the cause of the Vatican II Anti-council's false "oecumenism" with Mohammedan terrorists. Many Christian Americans are intimidated into silence from speaking up for their Faith, which built the Western Civilization upon the foundation of Greco-Roman civilization. The early Martyrs of the Church spoke up for Christ and His Church. Their false Newchurch descendants have sunk into cowardice.
The Newarchdiocese of San Francisco, California, is spawning a succession of criminal drunks as its heads. The current Newarchbishop, Salvatore Cordileone, just weeks before his "installation" (Newchurch bishops are no longer consecrated under the Sacrament of Holy Orders), was arrested for drunk driving around midnight with his own mother and a presbyter in the car. Cordileone claimed that he had mistakenly had an extra glass of wine at dinner, but his blood tests showed him to be a liar: he had the equivalent of five whiskeys still in his system when arrested. If Cordileone were a Catholic, he would have declined "installation" as he had proven himself unworthy of the office. But no, he pridefully went ahead with the phony "installation."
Cordileone's predecessor, Newcardinal William Levada, who served as Newchurch Archbishop of San Francisco from 1995 to 2012, was spirited off to the safety of Newrome in 2012 to become Newvatican's No. 3 Man, when Ex-Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger appointed him Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith. State and federal prosecutors in the United States were breathing down his neck for complicity in paedophile crimes in San Francisco. This is the typical modus operandi of Newpopes when their high officials are caught with their cassocks down sexually assaulting children, or supporting others in the commission of such crimes. The Newpopes whisk them off to Newrome and give them a diplomatic passport with criminal immunity. The same thing happened to the paedophile-accessor Newcardinal Bernard Law, formerly of Boston, Massachusetts, who got a fully-funded sinecure from the Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla in 2002, with generous stipend and sumptuous apartment, as Archpresbyter of the Basilica of St. Mary Major in Rome.
Newcardinal Levada is now a criminal, convicted of drunk driving, weaving all along the Hawaii Belt Highway at midnight on August 19, 2015. Levada "the Lush" tested out at over twice the legal limit -- another five-whiskey guy like Cordileone. The Hawaii court pulled his keys for a year, sentenced him to a fine and costs, and required him to submit to periodic substance-abuse tests, as well as psychological testing and treatment for substance abuse. If Levada had committed the same crime in San Francisco, he would have been jailed and required to pay a fine of over 1,000 dollars, in addition to drug testing and a ban on his driving.

True Catholics, you'd be surprised how many leaders of Newchurch are convicted criminals, of paedophile crimes or complicity in them, and, as here, of public drunkenness in the operation of a vehicle, in which they risked killing themselves and others. The Newchurch of the New Order is populated with public criminals from the top down. As Our Lord said, "Domus mea domus orationis est, vos autem fecistis illam speluncam latronum" (Luke 19:46/V). Their Newchurch is truly a den of criminals.
Released on April 8, 2016 -- but only in an unofficial form because it has not yet been published in its official Latin form -- is Francis-Bergoglio's long-awaited document following up on his very publicly divisive Anti-Synod on the Family, held in two sessions in October 2014 and October 2015. It will be no surprise to TRADITIO readers that there is nothing Catholic about this so-called "Apostolic Exhortation." The title itself, Amoris laetitia, The Joy of Love, sounds more appropriate for a trashy romance novel than for a religious document.
Bergoglio does the long-winded Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla one better by prattling on for a whopping 256 pages, sounding more like a Protestant Pentecostal minister than anything resembling a pope of the Roman Catholic Church. Documents before the Vatican II Anti-council quoted extensively from the dogmatic Council of Trent, one of the two most important Councils in the history of the Church. Bergoglio's "exhortation" quotes very little preceding authority to support it, but plenty of material from just the last few years. But that is in reality not important because Bergoglio didn't state anything clearly, let alone Catholic. Just like Vatican II, suffused throughout with the Modernist heresy, everything will be "pastoral," will be "flexible." Black is white; white is black. There is no good or evil. As the Protestant heretics believe, it all depends upon what each individual personally "feels."
Instead, Bergoglio quotes as his "authorities" heretics like the agnostic writer Jorge Luis Borges, the Socialist poet Octavio Paz, the Jewish German socialist psychologist Erich Fromm, and the heretic minister Martin Luther King, along with a good dollop of the anti-Catholic "Theology of the Body," concocted by the Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla. (For further information, click on FAQ10: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Beliefs? in the section "Theology of the Body" in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files: FAQs and Traditional Apologetics department.)
When it comes to one of the topics of his love screed, that of divorce and living in sin, Bergoglio's own family is a scandal. One has to wonder whether the Newpope didn't fall far from the anti-Catholic tree when his own sister, Maria Elena, is a bigamist, having contracted a second "marriage" after a civil divorce, in which she claims "he [Bergoglio] supported me." Bergoglio's nephew is living in a state of public sin with his live-in lover. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Rome's daily newspaper, La Repubblica.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's "Apostolic Exhortation" is not one whit reminiscent of anything Catholic or Apostolic, but instead reeks of nothing so much as the weak and flawed methodology, relying on the Liberalist/Modernist/Marxist "sociology," of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Harry Blackmun's majority opinion in the infamous 1973 Roe vs. Wade case, upholding the morality of abortion. It is not out of the realm of possibility the this Marxist Newpope's next document will tell Newchurchers that abortion should be permitted "for pastoral reasons."
More evidence that Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order is spinning out of control and anti-Catholic came to light when an Italian Newbishop ordered his presbyters not to allow Mohammedans to turn "Catholic" churches into mosques for their prayers. Newbishop Fausto Tardelli, of Pistoia, ironically the site of the condemned Anti-council of 1794, which led the way to the Vatican II Anti-council of 1962-1965, ordered his presbyters on March 19, 2016, not to offer Mohammedans "space for prayers inside churches designed for liturgy and the gathering of Christian communities. They can very well find other spaces and places." But presbyters in the Newdiocese told Italian media that they intend to defy their Newbishop.
The presbyters cited the renegade Newpope Francis-Bergoglio for their action in turning parts of "Catholic" churchers over to Mohammedan Infidels. "The important thing is that they can face Mecca," said one of the presbyters. The Marxist Bergoglio has been supporting Mohammedan invaders, many of whom have terrorist connections, against Christianity. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed La Nazione of Italy.]
True Catholics, at least some Italians were courageous enough to stand against both the Mohammedan invaders and the anti-Catholic Newchurch presbyters. They publicly took on the renegade presbyters, and presumably their renegade Newpope, for their infidelity to Christianity. If more people similarly stood up against the renegade Newpope and his minions, the Marxist Bergoglio would be beaten back, and his Newchurch bankrupted.
Francis-Bergoglio will be taking yet another political junket, to the Isle of the Lesbians, just off the coast of Turkey in the North Aegean sea, to push his Marxist agenda of breaking down Europe's borders to welcome Mohammedan Infidel invaders, many of whom have terrorist connections. However, Bergoglio has spurned a trip to Syria to protect the persecuted Christians there, many of whom are being martyred, and to do his duty to protect Roman civilization and its monuments, which the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant (ISIL) are destroying, particularly in the protected site of ancient Palmyra.
The Modernist/Liberalist Newpope had a hissy-fit when, alarmed at the recent influx of invaders, the European Union and Turkey spurned his political maneuvering and agreed to seal off the Infidel invaders' sea route. Francis-Bergoglio will travel with Bartholomew, the so-called "Oecumenical" Patriarch of the schismatic Eastern Orthodox, though he is despised as a heretic sellout by many Eastern Orthodox, and with Ieronymos II, Primate of the schismatic Greek Orthodox sect, to show his support for the Mohammedan invaders into the stable populations of Western Europe. This menage ŕ trois will thus consist of a heretic and two schismatics.
True Catholics, if Francis-Bergoglio were a pope worthy of the name, he would instead go to Syria to shore up Christianity there, to support the Christian Martyrs, who are being horribly murdered in an anti-Christian genocide there, and stand in the ancient Roman temple at Palmyra to dare the Mohammedan Infidels to bomb the priceless monuments of Roman civilization, as they have bombed so many other irreplaceable Roman monuments. To the contrary, Bergoglio is a Philistine, who would just as soon light the bombs' fuses to destroy Western Civilization, just as he has destroyed the Catholic Church.
Contrary to false propaganda being manufactured in Modernist/Liberalist circles and from Newvatican's own propaganda machine, Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio's popularity is slipping, and he is coming under increased public criticism. A candidate for the Philippine Presidency, Rodrigo Duterte, the popular law-and-order and conservative mayor of Davao City, publicly cursed Bergoglio for bringing gridlock to Manila when Bergoglio put on one of his New Order propaganda extravaganzas there. Duterte proclaimed: "[New]pope, you son of a bitch, go home. Don't visit here any more."
Duterte refuses to apologize for his statement. After all, he has justification to curse Francis-Bergoglio. Duterte was one of the many students sexually assaulted at a Newjesuit high school at Davao City by one Fr. Mark Falvey, S.J. The Newjesuits paid out 16,000,000 U.S. dollars in reparations to the child victims of Falvey, who also sexually assaulted at least nine children in the Los Angeles, California, area. Duterte said that at the time Newchurch had intimidated him into not reporting the crime.
True Catholics, it seems that all too many people are more concerned with the use of a profane expression than with the fact that Francis-Bergoglio heads the Newchurch whose presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals continue to rape, sodomize, and sexually assault children. In over two years Bergoglio has been talking a good propaganda game, but has done essentially nothing to stop the crimes against children by his Newchurch officials. He has failed to appoint a full complement of members for his toothless committee on child protection, nor has he given it its charter.
On April 2, 2016, Bernie Fellay, the Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX, which broke away from Archbishop Lefebvre's original Society of St. Pius X to cozy up to the heretical Newchurch of the New Order, was observed to have grown a much longer nose. "Pinocchio" Fellay, who has consistently maintained that he is not selling out to the heretical Newchurch of the New Order, sneaked into a backdoor to meet with the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, who supports the invalid New Mess and Newsacraments, the Vatican II Anti-council, sodomy, paedophilia, and false oecumenism, not to speak of Marxism. Reports indicated that Bergoglio and Fellay wanted a "secret" meeting. Well, it's not secret any more!
Fellay has sunk into quite an anti-Catholic doctrinal and moral morass over the last decade from associating with the heretical Newchurch of the New Order. So exposed were Fellay's anti-Catholic motives that already over one hundred of his priest-presbyters have abandoned him, gone independent into the Traditional Catholic Movement or joined the informal Traditional Catholic Resistance. In additional to the several independent traditional Catholic bishops currently in existence, Fellay's former senior bishop, Richard Williamson, who also abandoned him, recently consecrated two new traditional Catholic bishops for the world.
Fellay used to claim to be associated with Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre's Society of St. Pius X, but in recent years he has distanced himself significantly from the Archbishop's traditional Catholic positions. Fellay has now publicly stated that he accepts the validity of the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Mess of 1969. On September 23, 2015, Fellay had previously sneaked off to Newrome to meet with Newcardinal Gerhard Muller, head of the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith. It was after that time that Fellay indicated that he accepted the invalid Novus Ordo Mess. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic Herald.]
True Catholics, members of Fellay's Neo-SSPX need to bail immediately before they put in any more of their time and effort into an organization that will sell out their time and money to stage Novus Ordo Messes and welcome Novus Ordo presbyters instead of priests. Actually, reports from around the world to the TRADITIO Network indicate that Fellay is already introducing aspects of the Novus Ordo and placing Novus Ordo presbyters at some NSSPX locations as a trial balloon to see whether his sheep will blithely follow His Foxiness into the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order.
There go those cockeyed Newjesuits again! After picking up guns in Communist "Liberation Theology" and after losing their most noted contemporary member, Fr. Malachi Martin, the world-renowned author and Vaticanologist, who left the Jesuits and went traditional, now these cockeyed Newjesuits have fired Professor John McAdams at "Catholic" Marquette University simply for defending students' rights to advocate traditional marriage. But the Newchurchers have got a tiger by the tail. McAdams refused to "abase himself" and apologize to get merely a suspension instead of being fired.
You'd think that McAdams had said the "politically-correct" thing. After all, he didn't even really defend traditional marriage itself, just the right of others to do so without being "bullied and demeaned." Isn't that the big sin in Liberalist circles now, bullying and demeaning others? But, as with all the Liberalists' false notions, this one works only one way: in favor of homosexuals, lesbians, bisexuals, "transgenered," and, of course "queer" -- whatever that means.
McAdams is actually a stronger proponent of Marquette's claimed "Catholic" mission than the people running the university. McAdams is a victim of anti-Catholic persecution that smacks of the Ku Klux Klan, which was always more anti-Catholic than anti-Negro. Ironically, this anti-Catholic persecution is taking place at a supposedly "Catholic" institution! In fact, the evidence is mounting that the issue of so-called "gay marriage" was never only about "being with the one you love." Instead, the agenda of the extremist homophiliac movement was ultimately to use the issue to lash out against what most of the extremist "gays" hate most: Christ and His Christian followers.
McAdams said that Marquette isn't really much of a Catholic university. It is a creation of the Jesuits, and the Jesuit order is no longer a "bastion of Catholic orthodoxy." Instead, the Newjesuits are now wigged out Communists and atheists. The Newjesuit university essentially follows the same extremist left-wing trends as most of the rest of academia, including pandering to various ethnic and sexual minorities, not adhering to Catholic doctrine. [Some information from this Commentary was contributed by World News Daily.]
True Catholics, none of you should be surprised that Newchurch institutions are no longer Catholic, but are acting more like petty tyrannies. No true Catholic parent should spend one penny to send his child to a "Catholic" University. Not only is it a waste of money, but is funding Satan's Pence. All of this anti-Catholic radicalism is being engineered ultimately from Newrome, whose Marxist Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio, who is a Newjesuit himself, has consistently expressed heretical anti-Catholic doctrines. The fish stinks from the head, as the saying goes.
We have recently been lambasting independent traditional Catholic bishop Richard Williamson, formerly senior bishop of the Neo-SSPX, for his pussyfooting about the invalidity the "New Mass" and Sacraments (except, in some cases, for Baptism and Matrimony). However, in his April 1, 2015, weekly bulletin, Williamson did get the Big Picture right. He rightly points to a division in our times between Truth and authority in the Catholic Church, a division imposed by the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965).
Williamson rightly states that God's supreme shepherd, the pope, has, since that time, been "supremely struck" by Conciliar folly, and thus God's sheep have been scattered. In such times, true Catholics cannot belong to the anti-Catholic Conciliar Church, what is commonly called the Newchurch of the New Order, headed by heretical Modernist Francis-Bergoglio. He denounces Bernie Fellay, head of the Neo-SSPX, for spiritual blindness in failing to understand this basic teaching of traditional Catholic theology.
Traditional Catholics long ago reached that conclusion, but Bishop Williamson restates the warning that we TRADITIO Fathers have frequently given, that in these times true Catholics should be neither surprised by betrayals nor disappointed by divisions. "The Devil is being given for the moment almost a free hand to cause bitter divisions," Williamson says, between Catholics who are fighting for the true faith and those who have sold out heretics, as Fellay has.
As we TRADITIO Fathers have frequently cited, it has all happened before, particularly in the fourth century, when most of the bishops and several of the popes went into heresy, according to the Great Fathers of the Church. At that time it took more than one hundred years to clear the heretics out of the Church, and even now, 1500 years later, the heresy still remains. It will probably take longer than a century to cure the present Modernist heresy.
Bishop Williamson rightly concludes that from the Conciliar popes there can "no longer be the lifeblood of true Catholic authority flowing down into [so-called] Catholic institutions, and so Catholic persons can no longer depend upon Catholic institutions as they should normally be able to do. Says Williamson: "Catholics may naturally long for structure, hierarchy, superiors and obedience, but these cannot be fabricated out of thin air. Surely remnants are the order of the day. Patience." We must consider Newchurch as equivalent to the Protestant heresy and treat its Newpopes as equivalent to the Arch-heretic Martin Luther.

True Catholics, you may well ask what we are to do in the interim. The answer is simple: we are to follow the well-known dictum of St. Paul in his Second Epistle to the Thessalonians (2/14/DRV: "State et tenete traditiones, quas didicistis" [Stand fast: and hold the traditions that you have learned]. We must accept the confusion of these times as just penance for the heresy of Newchurch and its Newpopes, just as Christ accepted His Cross for us.
If Francis-Bergoglio were the CEO of a business corporation, he would be fired. The latest report on his job performance, and that of his Newchurch of the New Order that replaced the Catholic Church as the "institutional church" in 1964, is "F" for failure. In spite of the fact that Bergoglio is said to be popular -- at least according to Newchurch propagandists rather than sound studies -- more than half of all Italians, once one of the most Catholic of peoples, have abandoned Bergoglio and His Newchurch of the New Order. Fewer than half of Italy's people identify themselves as Newchurchers today, according to a new poll published on March 29, 2016, by L'Unita newspaper.
Since the heretical Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), the proportion of Newchurchers in Italy's population has been precipitously dropping. The survey found that 20 percent of Italians described themselves as atheists, while a roughly equal number professed Protestant or theist beliefs. A significant number of Italians admitted to bizarre spiritual beliefs: reincarnation, and karma, fate, and Tarot card readings. If Francis-Bergoglio claims to be the popular poster-boy for the Newchurch of the New Order, it certainly doesn't mean that his heretical fanatics practice Catholicism.
The survey showed that in the past twenty years, comprising the Newpapacies of the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio, a weakening of religious faith has occurred, and in 2015 a record number of Italian Newchurchers have abandoned Newchurch. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by The Local - Italy.]
True Catholics, once again the fraud that is Newchurch and its Newpopes is exposed. The Newchurch of the New Order is infected with a terminal disease and is dying before everyone's eyes. That fact cannot be changed by propaganda about Bergoglio's popularity. Satan himself is very popular these days in many sectors.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I'm dumbfounded that so few public figures have spoken out about the evils of Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order. It is intolerable to true Catholics. And noting the lack of protest by men of letters, I say that it is no wonder that literature -- like all the arts -- is at such a nadir. All great art in the West has been Catholic, or Greco-Roman, whereas genuine Catholic art today is nearly extinct. Where are the artists who oppose these devils?
I am an author, and I am no longer keeping quiet about what is going on in Newchurch. The only political figure in the United States with the guts to speak the truth to corrupt unholy power is Presidential Candidate Donald Trump, and I am glad you pointed out in your Daily Commentaries that his stance on abortion is in absolute correspondence with Catholic canon law. Isn't it a wonder that even the so-called "Pro Life" organizations oppose him? Even Trump's border wall is very Catholic. Pope St. Leo IV built walls to protect Rome from the Saracens, the barbarian Muslim invaders who came to pillage, rape, and conquer. Did the Muslims pay for it? Yes, they built it! The holy pope put captured Saracens on a chain gang to build the wall, which stands today.
I live for the day when these Newpopes will be publicly put on trial by the authority of a genuine papacy, where, on every networked channel, the world will witness their corruption and immorality. But to speak of this now, in our culture, is to recite the finest poetry into the ears of sows. Such statements make perfect sense to men of good will, while most of the world is so inebriated in wickedness that it cannot understand just now. Everyone's priorities and sense of justice are upside down -- another fruit of the Vatican II Anti-council. I feel lucky just to have been given the grace of the true Catholic Faith, and to discern the facts of our holy religion, the only true religion, in an age of incredible idolatry, apostasy, and ignorance.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Even many traditional Catholics are unaware that when Newchurch tried to impose the invalid "New Mess" starting in 1969, over fifty distinguished British writers, scholars, artists, and historians protested in what has come to be known as the "Agatha Christie" Petition, many of them not even Catholic. Signers included the internationally-renowned mystery writer herself, concert pianist Vladimir Ashkenazy, Classicist and author Maurice Bowra, violinist and conductor Yehudi Menuhin, art critic and host of the popular television series Civilization, Kenneth Clark, conductor Colin Davis, Roman historian and author of the popular television series I, Claudius, Robert Graves, novelist Graham Greene, actor Sir Ralph Richardson, opera soprano Joan Sutherland, and Communist (!) author Philip Toynbee. For further information, click on AGATHA: The 1971 Petition by Distinguished Writers, Scholars, Artists, and Historians Living in England to Spare the Traditional Latin Mass.
As a result of the embarrassment caused to the New Order sect by these distinguished writers and artists, the Newpope Paul VI-Montini backed off full implementation of the "New Mess" in England, just as he had postponed implementation of the invalid New Order service when Cardinals Ottaviani and Bacci, together with a group of Roman theologians, publicly called the "New Mass" an invalid Protestant service in 1969, in their Short Critical Study of the New Order of Mass, commonly known as the Ottaviani Intervention. For further information, click on OTTAVIANI: Ottaviani Intervention: Short Critical Study of the New Order of Mass.
The leading figures of the current time, as contrasted with those in 1971, are too cowardly and pusillanimous to take on the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order. Thus, Newchurch is getting just what it deserves. It has lost the valid Mass and Sacraments and is thus drowning in a graceless and immoral cesspool of its own making.
Ironically, U.S. President Candidate Donald Trump, a Presbyterian, has turned out to be the most "Catholic" candidate in the Presidential race, confounding Neocon Newchurchers like U.S. Senator Rafael ("Ted") Cruz, who claims to be "Pro Life." Donald Trump's answer on abortion was incredibly honest. When asked at an MSNBC Town Hall telecast on March 30, 2016, a hypothetical question: whether, if abortion became illegal again in the United States, there should be a penalty for a woman who broke the law and procured an abortion. Trump answered yes, just as illegal invaders crossing the U.S. border should pay a penalty. The law should be followed. And the doctor who performed the abortion should pay a penalty as well.
Trump's answer corresponds to long-standing Catholic canon law and, before the U.S. Supreme Court's Roe vs. Wade decision of 1973, to U.S. civil law in the fifty states. It cannot be the doctor alone who is penalized, as this would be like saying that someone who hired a hit man is not responsible for the murder or that Newpopes who foster and support paedophile crimes on the part of their Newclergy should get off scot free. When Patrick Buchanan was running for President in 1992, 1996, and 2000 on a "Pro Life" platform, Buchanan, who was no Neo-con, but a Palaeo-con, proposed a penalty for women procuring an abortion, though it could be light depending upon the circumstances.
Cruz, when commenting on Trump's answer, must have shocked everyone in the "Pro Life" movement, when Cruz claimed that in an abortion the woman, not the child, is the "victim," and that the woman is not the perpetrator. That's like saying that the murderer is the victim, not the perpetrator, of the murder. Thus, Cruz has aligned himself with the Radical Liberalist/Feminists like Hillary Clinton, who vocally advocates women killing their children at will, at any time before birth, even when partially born, with no penalty whatsoever.
Then Trump turned the tables on the querulous moderator of the town hall, Chris Matthews. Trump had done his homework. He had found out that Matthews was a Newchurcher and confronted Matthews with the obvious contradiction in his own position on abortion. Matthews claimed to "follow the pope in moral matters," but in fact supported "abortion rights." Trump acted like a talented prosecutor, peppering Matthews again and again with the duplicitous hypocrisy of his position. Finally, Matthews, hoisted by his own petard, gave up and said that he didn't have to answer the question. Another immoral Newchurcher exposed!
True Catholics, once again Donald Trump seems to have confounded Newchurchers like Ted Cruz (and John Kashich), who claim to be "Pro Life," but are really abortion panderers when political push comes to shove. And it took a Presbyterian to expose the duplicity and hypocrisy of such Newchurcher candidates, who in reality pander to abortion in the same way that the Newpopes pander to paedophiles presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals.
Further evidence that Francis-Bergoglio has become a comic character as Newpope was provided by his being featured in a comic book, scandalously released by Storm Comics on March 23, 2016, "Spy" Wednesday during Holy Week, the most solemn week of the year, when true Catholics' focus is on Christ, not man. The comics portray Bergoglio as a superstar, complete with "cool" cape, hat, and car.
Is Bergoglio a Newpope or a Batman? Even he doesn't seem to know. In just two years he has brought the Newpapacy to a new low, pandering to public prurience by "starring" on Twitter and Instagram. Bergoglio's predecessor, the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla, also stooped to pandering by appearing in Marvel Comics.
True Catholics, none of this Bergoglian nonsense is Catholic in the least. In the first half of the twentieth century most Catholics didn't even know the name of the pope. Why should they? Popes were placed under oath not to change anything about the Catholic Faith or worship. It didn't matter who the pope was. They all taught and practiced true Catholicism, orthodoxy and orthopraxy. Now, the Newpopes distribute false and silly propaganda from the newly-renamed "Vatican Information Services," to pay for which Francis-Bergoglio has thrown his Newchurch into the red. Each one of them wants an invalid Mess named after him, which is more Protestant and Infidel than his predecessor's. It all smacks of papolatry (pope-worship), which is the sin of idolatry, one of the gravest sins possible against the First Commandment of God.
On March 27, 2016, Easter Sunday, Mother Angelica (née Rita Antoinette Rizzo) passed to eternity of natural causes at the age of 92, essentially from complications of the stroke that she suffered in 2001. In that year she ended her active control of the EWTN Cable Network, which On December 1, 2015, the cable Eternal World Television Network (EWTN), which has operated as an arm of the Modernist U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops (USCCB) since 1981.
Although she could be described as a Neocon, Mother Angelica was never a traditional Catholic when she headed the cable Eternal World Television Network (EWTN) that she founded in 1981. Instead, she functioned as an arm of the rabidly-Modernist U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) and of the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order. When she suffered a stroke in 2001 and was sidelined, the heretical lay officials that she had appointed to run EWTN no longer even maintained the conservative facade, but became more and more anti-Catholic, employing Protestant ministers like the rapid Protestant Evangelical Scott Hahn, and employing New Order presbyters, like John Corapi and Benedict Groschel, various of whom were exposed as associated with drugs, prostitution, and paedophilia.
Finally, the lid was blown off the anti-Catholic charade that EWTN had clearly become in the 2006 expose, EWTN: A Network Gone Wrong: How the Eternal Word Television Network Is Contributed to the Spread of the "Silent Apostasy" in the Roman Catholic [Sic] Church.
True Catholics, the post-Angelica operators are very devious, throwing just enough Latin into their televised services to dupe the clueless Newchurchers into believing that ETWN is "traditional." Nothing could be further from the truth! Just listen to the presbyters and Newseminarians singing in the vulgar tongue like the Protestant Anglican-Episcopalians and reading Scriptural passages in the vulgar tongue. They sound as if they had never heard of the Bible or any of the passages they they read -- and certainly don't understand Catholicism.
