Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I read recently the text of an interview with a Newchurch "exorcist," who is quoted as saying that devils are "slowly dying." I struggle to understand how they could be dying if they are not corporeal beings. The only sort of dying I can think they are undergoing is metaphorical, but the "exorcist" doesn't clarify this. Is Newchurch now falsely teaching that Devils are dying?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
First of all, Newchurch doesn't have any exorcists. The Minor Order of Exorcist, in which all traditional Catholic priests, but not Newchurch presbyters, are to this day ordained, was done away within the Newchurch of the New Order. On August 15, 1972, Newpope Paul VI-Montini suppressed the Minor Order of Exorcist in his Apostolic Constitution Ad pascendum, which also suppressed within the anti-Catholic Newchurch the Minor Order of Porter and the Major Order of Subdeacon.
This situation explains why Newchurch presbyters, who have not been ordained as priests since the New Ordinal of 1968, and thenceforth have not been given the power to offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass or to confer the Sacrament of Penance, are powerless against the Devil. In fact, the Devil has taken possession of these presbyters and Newchurch, as the same Paul VI-Montini admitted when he admitted on June 29, 1972, in his sermon during the Mass for Sts. Peter & Paul), just two months after he issued his infamous Ad pascendum: "the smoke of Satan (fumus Satanae) has entered the temple of God."
As we have warned our TRADITIO readers so many times before, nothing that emanates from Newchurch can be trusted. To the contrary, Newchurch should be shunned entirely. By now, fifty years after the Vatican II Anti-council, there is nothing Catholic left in Newchurch except for a few superficialities. Newchurch does not retain Catholic doctrine, morality, or worship. Newchurch is by now all Protestant, with pagan leanings, such as Marxism, which the current Newpope Francis-Bergoglio professes.
You are correct in your Catholic theology. Devils cannot die. Devils are angels, albeit fallen, and, as such, have immortal souls. They cannot die. This is just another Newchurch ploy to destroy Catholic doctrine and allow devils to have free reign over oblivious Newchurchers. And that is exactly just what the Devils want. For an excellent treatment of this subject, read C.S. Lewis's literary classic, Screwtape Letters.
August 26, 1978, marks the 38th anniversary of the election of Pope John Paul I-Luciani, the "hidden" Newpope. He was a traditional Catholic, having entered the minor seminary (which no longer exists in the Newchurch of the New Order) at age 11, and was ordained at age 22 as a priest in 1935 and as a bishop at age 46 in 1958, before the traditional Sacrament of Holy Orders was replaced in 1968 with Newchurch's invalid Protestantized New Ordinal.
The late Fr. Gommar DePauw, founder of the Catholic Traditionalist Movement in 1964, related that immediately after Luciani's election, the Newpope contacted him by telephone to invite him to become a member of a commission that the Newpope was establishing to plan a return to the Traditional Latin Mass. Unfortunately, that commission was never to meet, as Luciani's death 33 days after his election intervened.
John Paul I-Luciani's death occurred under highly questionable circumstances. David Yallop, in his 1984 book In God's Name, described the false statements put out by Newvoatican about who found the body, what Luciani had been reading, when he had been found, and whether a post mortem could be carried out. Yallop presented evidence that because Luciani had publicly stated his intention to clean up the Vatican Bank, which was being run by Freemasons and the Mafia, as it still is, under Francis-Bergoglio, Luciani was poisoned by the Mafia in cahoots with the Newroman Curia.
True Catholics, whatever may be the case about John Paul I-Luciani's death, it appears that he may have been the last chance for the Newchurch of the New Order to have returned to Catholicism and to the Traditional Latin Mass and Sacraments. Luciani's successor was the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla, who once and for all sold out Newchurch to the anti-Catholic forces wedded to the Vatican II Anti-council's destruction of Catholic liturgy, doctrine, and morality.
The Jesuits, who are known historically for playing fast and loose with the truth -- from which the pejorative English word "jesuitical," meaning "crafty" and "sly" originates -- have been bested by their Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio. Marxism is condemned by the Catholic Church for many reasons, not least among which is its rejection of St. Thomas Aquinas's Catholic philosophy of realism and its acceptance of the philosophy of Subjectivism (Relativism).
You know the mantra: "we all worship the same god" and "one religion is as good as another." So bad did the Jesuits become that the entire order was shut down throughout Christendom by Pope Clement XIV in the Bull of Abolition, Dominus ac Redemptor, of July 21, 1773. The order was not restored until 41 years later. Then, in the 1960s, when the Newchurch of the New Order was getting started at the Vatican II Anti-council, the Newjesuits became overt Marxists, embracing Marxism's "liberation theology," and went around Latin America killing conservatives whom they didn't like.
On July 30, 2016, during his Newpapal junket to Poland, Francis-Bergoglio complained to a group of 28 Newjesuits that Newchurch reconciliationists (formerly known as confessors, but Newchurch abandoned the Sacrament of Confession in 1972) have "overly clear and distinct ideas" and act within "limits and criteria." But in Bergoglio's Marxist world, all morality has "shades of gray." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
True Catholics, the Marxist Francis-Bergoglio wants no black-and-white morality. He doesn't want to say that sodomy is immoral; it's all relative. He doesn't want to say that money-laundering is wrong; it's all relative. He doesn't want to say that heresy is wrong; it's all relative. No wonder Bergoglio and his Newchurch are awash in despicable moral corruption. They can't distinguish clearly right from wrong -- and don't want to!
Local sources have reported to the TRADITIO Fathers that after a scandalous and Modernist was play put on by the school children of the Neo-SSPX site in Veneta, Oregon, with the play having been approved by the Neo-SSPX priory, all three Neo-SSPX priest-presbyters and all four nuns have been transferred to other locations. It was scandals such as these that brought about the founding of the independent traditional Catholic Infant Jesus of Prague Mission in the same city, associated with the Traditional Resistance group, which was formed in opposition to Fellay's Newchurch-leaning Neo-SSPX.
Independent traditional Catholic bishop Richard Williamson, once the SSPX's senior bishop, who abandoned Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX when it skewed toward the New Order sect and who serves as the informal advisor to the Traditional Resistance group, will celebrate a Pontifical Mass in Veneta, confer the Sacrament of Confirmation, and offer a conference to lay out his opposition to Fellay's plans to sell out Archbishop Lefebvre's original traditional Catholic Society of St. Pius X to the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order.

Fr. Jean-Michel Faure, of France, was originally selected by traditional Catholic Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre to be one of the four traditional Catholic bishops to be consecrated on June 30, 1988, but Faure declined then out of humility. On March 19, 2015, independent traditional Catholic bishop Richard Williamson, formerly the senior bishop of the Archbishop's original Society of St. Pius X, consecrated Faure as a bishop for the Traditional Resistance.
In February 2016, at the Traditional Resistance Seminary of St. Grignion de Montfort near Angers in France, Bishop Faure presided over a meeting of the half dozen French priests of the Priestly Union of Marcel Lefebvre (USML. commonly known as the Traditional Resistance. Now, a year later, that meeting has borne fruit, when, on August 22, 2016, Bishop Faure pronounced the Decree of Erection at the seminary of the Priestly Society of the Apostles of Jesus and Mary (SAJM), the name selected by Archbishop Lefebvre himself for his second proposed traditional Catholic congregation. The new congregation is consecrated to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, whose feastday in the traditional calendar is August 22.
The purpose of the erection is given in Article II, Section 5, of the Society's Statutes: "Since the Second Vatican Council, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, Catholic doctrine, and all life in the Church are under attack by the liberal and modernist hierarchy. Because the Catholic priesthood has the essential duty to fight Liberalism and Modernism in defense of the violated divine rights, the Society rejects all possibility of a canonical regularization via bilateral agreement, unilateral recognition, or any other way, so long as the Catholic hierarchy does not return to the Tradition of the Church." The text of the Decree of Erection is as follows:
We, Christian Jean-Michel Faure, Bishop of the Catholic Church, invoking the Holy Name of God, do decree as follows:
- Given the very serious crises caused to the Church by the Second Vatican Council and its subsequent reforms, and the consequent state of necessity;
- Given the urgent necessity, in these times of apostasy, of priests formed in the Tradition of the Church who devote their life to the restoration of the kingdom of Christ, fighting tirelessly against the prevailing Liberalism and Modernism currently among Catholics;
- Given the betrayal of the current authorities of the [Neo-]Society of St. Pius X to the spirit and work of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre;
- The Priestly Society of the Apostles of Jesus and Mary is erected as a clerical society living in common under the terms of Canon 673 of the Code of Canon Law (1917).
- The seat of the Society is fixed as 1 Chemin de la Petite Garde, 49240 Avrille, France.
- We do approve and confirm the Statutes of the Society.
We implore divine blessings upon this priestly society that it may attain its main goal, which is the formation of holy priests.
Given at Avrille, on August 22, 2016, in the Feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary
+ Christian Jean Michel Faure, Bishop of the Catholic Church

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
In Part II of this report, I explained how the Newchurch of the New Order has taken over and gutted such pseudo-traditional organizations as the Fraternity of St. Peter, the Institute of Christ the King, and the Apostolic Administration of Campos, Brazil. So the question naturally arises: why is Bernie Fellay scheming to sell out the Neo-SSPX and destroying it under the thumb of Newrome? Why has he switched sides from traditional Catholicism and Archbishop Lefebvre, and become the playmate of Francis-Bergoglio and Guido Pozzo? Did they bully him? What will Fellay gain by selling out the Neo-SSPX and the Archbishop to the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order?
Of course, Fellay will gain Novus Ordo purple socks and some transfers to an offshore account in Liechtenstein or the Grand Cayman Islands. But Fellay, with his previously-reported connections to European banks, may have all of that already. What else can Newrome give him? It can give him and his Neo-SSPX an excuse to give up the fight for the true Faith. Bishop Williamson, formerly the senior Neo-SSPX, who has now abandoned that organization in 2012, predicted that exactly this would happen with Fellay's Neo-SSPX.
You see, Archbishop Lefebvre founded his original traditional Catholic Society of St. Pius X for the benefit of laypeople who were keeping the Catholic faith against the anti-Catholic "institutional" Newchurch. In the Arian Heresy of the fourth century, it was the laypeople who preserved the Catholic Faith, not the popes, bishops, and priests. The Doctor of the Church, St. Jerome, tells us that four out of five of the bishops then, and a few of the popes too, were Arian heretics. Laypeople are not directly under the control of heretic prelates and are therefore better positioned to resist those grinning and false-seeming liberalist deceivers.
Archbishop Lefebvre's SSPX sought to bring the valid Catholic Sacraments -- the Sacraments of the Traditional Catholic rites -- and the dogma of the Catholic Church to the laypeople who were standing fast for the true Faith. That's why the SSPX tried to disseminate itself as widely as possible. It's important to reach those points of light that are holding out against the Protestantism and secular darkness of Newchurch.
The problem is that Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX is structured so that priests, and now even Novus Ordo presbyters, control it. The re-elected Superior-Dictator Fellay dances to the tune of his flawed clergy, not his lay supporters. The interest of priests is not always the same as that of laymen. Fellay's priest-presbyters would rather not have to travel all over the world, back and forth on long roads, to bring the Sacraments to the people, whereas heroic independent traditional priests must often live in spare rooms offered by traditional Catholic faithful or in tiny cramped apartments. Fellay's priest-presbyters now want relief. They don't want to spend half their time trying to reach distant chapels by automobile.
The Newchurch's "personal prelature" structure gives Fellay the excuse that he needs to refuse requests from afar for his half Novus Ordo "Mess of 1962+" (remember: the Neo-SSPX does not offer the Traditional Latin Mass). He doesn't want to waste his money on building tiny wooden chapels in the hinterlands: "Oh, madam, I'd love to send you a priest-presbyter, but your local Newbishop has refused my application, and, anyway, all our priest-presbyters are working around the clock already. Maybe a local Newdiocesan presbyter can help you."
Under a Newchurch "personal prelature," Fellay and his under-superiors are safe. They can live lazily as they run their little fiefdoms. Fellay becomes His Lordship Baron Fellay of Menzingen, living in a lovely castle perched high in the Swiss alps. His inner circle of baronets rules with him. He sends his closest friends out into his international Barony. Each is a knight errant (in more ways than one) who governs a dependency, a priory. There are priors and subpriors and chapels and even churches belonging to the fiefdom. And there is a life of Newchurch leisure for all the priest-presbyters, the squires of the new "prelature." This is not the life of the Apostles, who lived on the road to save souls and advance the mission of Jesus Christ. Fellay's Neo-SSPX will no longer even try to convert a secularized world. It has pretty much given that up already by cozying up to the Newchurch of the New Order.
If Francis-Bergoglio wants to grant a phony "recognition" of Neo-SSPX sacraments, well, who cares? Mickey Mouse and Donald Duck and the Moderator of the Evangelical Lutherans could do the same. Who cares what the phony Newchurch recognizes? The heresies of Newchurch must be denounced and renounced and condemned. These heresies culminate in the subjectivism condemned so consistently by Bishop Williamson. He knows from the inside. He used to be a colleague of Fellay.
What can the Neo-SSPX priest-presbyters do? They must not walk willingly into this trap of a Newchurch "personal prelature." They should resist and refuse and turn back--before it is too late and they've come to depend for their daily bread and even their socks on the anti-Catholic Newchurch and the "personal prelature" barony of Fellay. Fellay will take all the lovely chapels and other properties with him into Newrome's embrace, the embrace of the anti-principles of a new "French Revolution." Of course, a split in the Neo-SSPX will benefit the liberalists the most. Newrome will laugh long and hard as they see the Catholic Traditional Movement fragment. It will be Newrome's only consolation as its own laypeople are abandon Newchurch in droves, so that Newchurch will be reduced to a crumb in a decade or so.
Let's hope that the other Neo-SSPX bishops, Tissier de Mallerais and Galarreta, do the right thing and join Bishop Williamson in refusing to walk into the Newchurch spider's parlor. But there's not much hope of that really. Just ask yourself this question: if even an angel from Heaven should preach a doctrine that is not that of Christ, should we surrender ourselves into his hands? I'm with St. Paul on that. I'm with Christ on that. I'm with His Holy and Immaculate Mother on that. And that's where all true Catholics should be.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
In Part I of this report, I explained how the Neo-SSPX's Bernie Fellay's acceptance of a touted "personal prelature" from the Newchurch of the New Order would be the poison-pill to kill the Neo-SSPX. Now let's look at how the principles of Archbishop Lefebvre's original traditional Catholic SSPX differed from Fellay's Modernistic version.
The principal juridical effect of Archbishop Lefebvre's SSPX was to refuse obeisance to the enemies of Jesus Christ, otherwise known as the liberalist Newprelates. The SSPX was successful from 1975 precisely because it refused to be subject to its worst enemies, the local bishops. That is why he was able to build scores of SSPX chapels all over the world. Now Fellay would surrender the one benefit that made the SSPX successful in preserving traditional Catholicism when the Newchurch of the New Order had rejected it after the Vatican II Anti-council and substituted the anti-Catholic New Order as the "institutional Church" in 1964.
A Newchurch "personal prelature" would deliver, in effect, no more benefits than does the Newchurch "society of apostolic life" currently had by the Fraternity of St. Peter or the "consecrated life" of the Newchurch Institute of Christ the King. The FSSP, the ICR, and the other pseudo-traditionalist sellouts to the New Order cannot go anywhere without the local Newbishops' permission. It's suicide in the end, even if the death is to be slow. First you suck them in, and then, ten years later, you issue Protocol 1411 of 1999 -- which requires them to go Novus Ordo -- or sometimes far worse.
But it gets worse even at the outset. There is a structure that is equivalent to a Newdiocese and for which Rome has approved a precedent. This is the particular church (in this case, an "apostolic administration") approved for the Campos, Brazil, presbyters in 2001. The Campos priests would not accept the poisonous personal prelature: they insisted on the equivalent of a personal Newdiocese under Newcanon 372.2. While such a structure would not have freed Campos from the direct power of an heretical Newrome, it could have at least freed it from the local Newbishops.
To quash traditional Catholicism in Campos, Newrome restricted the Campos structure, called an "apostolic administration," to the territory of just one Newdiocese in Brazil -- one out of 262 Brazilian Newdioceses. One out of about 3,100 Newdioceses in the world. A guilded cage indeed! Outside the territory of that one Newdiocese, the pseudo-traditionalist Campos priests can do nothing without the permission of the local Marxist Newbishop! As a result, the pseudo-traditinalist presbyters have already been forced to simulate the invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service in public outside their little bailiwick. When they tried to lie about this fact, videos of sacrilegious, blasphemous, and idolatrous Novus Ordo services were taken and circulated all over the internet. It always comes down to the local liberalist Newbishop having the final say on everything.
And that is why doctrine must be fixed before juridical structures can be considered.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Every few weeks now, the insistence on a "personal prelature" in the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order for Bernie Fellay's Neo-Society of St. Pius X, which broke from Archbishop Lefebvre's original traditional Catholic SSPX, emerges on the internet and in print media. It all seems to be emanating from one source: Newchurch's Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei. From the beginning of Newrome's "negotiations" under Benedict-Ratzinger, the PCED has been insisting that the Neo-SSPX accept a juridical structure before doctrinal "differences" (read "dogmatic contradictions") are resolved.
It is becoming easy now to forget that, also from the beginning, Archbishop Lefebvre's original SSPX had insisted that, no, doctrinal disputes had to be resolved first. The reasons for this necessity are obvious. For one, a traditional group of clerics does not want to find one fine day that it has bound itself to the heresies that had been hatched by liberalist periti (so-called "experts") at the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), which introduced the anti-Catholic "New Mess," "New Sacraments," and "New Morality." It is from the foundation of doctrine that policies are made consistent, not the other way around.
Before Newrome's agents tried to shut down internet discussion of these sorts of issues (assaults that the TRADITIO Network, almost alone, has rejected), Newmonsignor Camille Perl and then his successor, Newarchbishop Guido Pozzo, have tried to force the Neo-SSPX to accept the "personal prelature" structure, the same structure that has kept Opus Dei under the control of the liberalists and Modernists of Newchurch. Note that very few Newdioceses allow Opus Dei's "Prelature of the Holy Cross" to open chapels in their territories.
Pozzo, in particular, believes firmly in the media dogma that if you repeat a bad idea or a lie often enough, it somehow becomes acceptable. In a post-objectivist age, if you want to force something on someone, you simply insist on it over and over and over again like a petulant child in a sandbox who is determined to get his way. The problem is that Pozzo has found a playmate in that sandbox who wants to appease him. That playmate is Bernie Fellay, Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX. Archbishop Lefebvre would have told Francis-Bergoglio and his handmaidens to pound sand.
And what is a "personal prelature" in the Newchurch of the New Order? It is defined in Newcanons 294 to 297 of the anti-Catholic Novus Ordo 1983 Code. First of all, it is not a particular church that is equivalent to a Newdiocese under Canon 368. Secondly, it includes only clerics: it does not include laypeople. For example, it excludes monks, hermits, nuns, friars, and other religious brothers and sisters who are not deacons or presbyters. Religious and lay orders can be affiliated to the personal prelature, but they are not part of it. Lay associations can also be associated, but are not part of it either.
The consequence is that, under a personal prelature, lay supporters of Fellay's Neo-SSPX would be entirely subject to their local Newchurch bishops. Any time a Neo-SSPX supporter wants a baptism, marriage, confirmation or burial done by the Neo-SSPX, that supporter would need individual permission from the local heretic Newchurch bishop. It puts Neo-SSPX supporters completely under the thumb of their worst enemies. Better to be subject to the mullahs of Islam than to the Marxist and Modernist Newbishops.
It gets worse. Under Newcanon 297 every time Fellay's Neo-SSPX would like to open a first or new apostolate, e.g., a chapel, oratory, or church, in the territory of a Newchurch diocese, it would need permission from the local Newbishop: "The statutes are likewise to define the relationship of the prelature with the local ordinaries [Newbishops] in whose particular churches the prelature, with the prior consent of the diocesan bishop [emphasis added], exercises or wishes to exercise its pastoral or missionary activity."
Germany has achieved a unique distinction, but it is not one that Newchurch in Germany is happy about. In 2015 the lowest number of presbyters were installed (Newchurch since the Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968 has not ordained priests, merely installed presbyter-ministers) than ever before. For the whole country, revealed the German Episcopal Conference on August 18, 2016, only 58 presbyter-ministers were installed. This is half the number of just a decade ago. 2015 marked the first time that the number of new Novus Ordo seminarians dropped below 100. When the Catholic Church was the "institutional" Church, before 1964, there were 500 ordinations every year to the Sacrament of Holy Orders.
Newchurchers are leaving the New Order sect in droves. Between 1995 and 2015, attendance at the "New Mess" dropped to barely one in ten. 200,000 Newchurchers are now officially applying each year to leave Newchurch. There are so few presbyter-ministers left in Newchurch that laymen (and laywomen) are running the phony and invalid services. Catholicism, or rather Newchurchism, has fallen from the largest religious group in Germany to a mere 29 per cent. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
True Catholics, what we TRADITIO Fathers have predicted is now coming true before our eyes. Newchurch is rapidly dying. Nobody really wants the invalid Novus Ordo service or Newchurch's phony "Extraordinary Latin Mass" of 2007, which is not the Traditional Latin Mass. Within a decade the Newchurch of the New Order will be reduced to a triviality in much of Europe, Canada, Australia, and the United States. The solid traditional Catholic communities in these countries will then become the "institutional" Catholic Church once again, in less than a century after the Vatican II Anti-council.
St. Paul wrote in his Second Epistle to the Corinthians about all the fools he had to suffer in the Church. Certainly one of these modern-day fools in Newchurch is David Zubik, Newbishop of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. On August 17, 2016, Zubik publicly admitted that the "New Mess" was a failure. He was "sobered" when smacked in the face by the latest statistics.
The number of Newchurchers attending the "New Mess" within his Newdiocese has plummeted by 40 per cent since 2000. 100,000 Newchurchers have simply walked out of the Mess. 33 per cent of Novus Ordo presbyters died or gave up since 2000, and another 33 per cent will die or walk out within the next decade. In 2012, 33 per cent of Newparishes were technically bankrupt. In 2015, that number rose to 50 per cent.
So, what is Zubik's "solution"? A return to the Catholic Mass? Far from it! Zubik thinks that after the death-dealing radicalization and invalidation of the Mess, he can bring in more radicalization to save it: "better homilies, better music, and more people."
Newbishop Zubik claims to be trying to "enliven people's faith." He plans to do that by shutting down more Novus Ordo temples, a plan that he sugarcoats by calling it "consolidation." It's not working. After 50 years of the mortiferous consequences of the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), the Newchurch of the New Order is dead. There just aren't enough gravediggers around to bury the corpses of all the Catholics Newchurch has spiritually murdered. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review.]
True Catholics, it is too bad that these Newchurchers didn't listen to their first Newpope, Paul VI-Montini. Not even two years after the New Mess had been implemented under his signature, he declared: "Through some cracks in the wall the smoke of Satan (fumus Satanae] has entered the temple of God.... We thought that after the [Anti-]council a day of sunshine would have dawned for the history of the Church. What dawned, instead, was a day of ... darkness" (June 29, 1972).
Nearly 500 years after Martin Luther nailed his 95 theses to the castle church door at Wittemburg, Germany, the largest Lutheran denomination in the United States has approved a declaration recognizing that "there are no longer Church-dividing issues" between the heretical Lutherans and the heretical Newchurchers.
So declared the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America at its Churchwide Assembly held during the week of August 7, 2016. The vote was virtually unanimous, 931-9, on its document "Declaration on the Way" and its accompanying 32 "Statements of Agreement," in which Newchurch joins in the Lutheran heresy on issues of church, ministry and "eucharist." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Religion News Service.]
True Catholics, the problem all along for the heretical Protestants was the Catholic Church. For 500 years, the Catholic Church since Luther's heresy tried to win over the Protestants from their heresy. But when the Catholic Church was replaced as the "institutional Church" in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council with the Protestantized Newchurch of the New Order, there was no inherent problem any longer. It just took 45 years to get the paperwork straightened out. But the conclusion is clear -- crystal -- Newchurch is now officially recognized as the Protestant Church it truly is.
In 1857, when Ambrogio Damiano Achille Ratti, later to be crowned Pope Pius XI in 1922, was born, his birthplace in Desio in the Northern Italian province of Lombardy, was Catholic. No longer. A Novus Ordo presbyter in that city now has made a mockery of "confession" by making it a Pokemon game. He calls "confession" Pekkamon, a play on the Latin word for sin, peccatum. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Katoliches News Agency.]
What does this Newchurch presbyter know anyway? He was born in 1969, a year after the Newchurch of the New Order stopped ordaining priests and started using the Protestantized 1968 New Ordinal. So, Giuseppe Corbari isn't even a priest and was never ordained. He is a Novus Ordo minister-presbyter, who was merely "installed" with no explicit power to forgive sin.
The Newchurch of the New Order, which replaced the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church in 1964, no longer even has the valid Sacrament of Penance. In 1968 Newchurch decreed that priests were no longer to be ordained in Holy Orders, but that thenceforth Protestantized ministers, called "presbyters," or elders, like the Mormons, would be "installed" and no longer explicitly given the power to forgive sin. In 1973 Newchurch decreed that the Catholic Sacrament of Penance be replaced with a Protestantized "Rite of Reconciliation," which is invalid and does not have the power to forgive sin.
True Catholics, don't bother to go to "confession" to a Novus Ordo presbyter, many of whom still deceitfully call themselves "priests." In St. Thomas More's famous statement: "They have not the competence (power)." They cannot forgive sin. Moreover, anyone who approaches such a fraud commits a grave Sin against the First Commandment of God: sacrilege.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Why do so many Newchurchers virtually worship "conservative" Newbishops like Charlie Chaput, of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania? Chaput claims to be "pro life," but in reality supports pro-abortion politicians. Why do Newchurchers fail to see that these Newbishops aren't even Catholic?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
The Newbishops of the Newchurch of the New Order are in fact now reduced to being secular politicians, not Catholic bishops. They are not even validly consecrated in the Sacrament of Holy Orders, but only "installed" in the Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968. That explains why they have no sacramental grace and why they so often fall down into the "Dark Side."
Newchurchers adhere to heretical Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Newchurch doctrine, morals, and worship. As to the Newchurchers themselves, they revel in their cluelessness. They wish to remain clueless because if they admitted the truth, they would have to leave the anti-Catholic Newchurch and stand up for the Catholic Faith. And that would make them pariahs among their fellow Newchurchers and cut them off from their "social" circle -- for that is all Newchurch is.

In our confused age, to which Our Lord's condemnation "Unless you see signs and wonders, you believe not" (John 4:48/DRV) rings especially true, many Newchurchers, and even some traditionalists, have turned from the worship of God to the idolatrous worship of miracles. Anyone, for example, who would equate Fatima to the authority of Sacred Scripture, as did one late pseudo-traditionalist priest-presbyter, is an idolater according to Church dogma.
One of these multifarious modern-day "apparitions" is what is known as Garabandal, named for a remote village in Northern Spain, which purportedly received thousands of "apparitions" at about the time of the Vatican II Anti-council in the 1960s. Even Newchurch has essentially rejected the "apparitions," which have been described as "childish stunts and simple tricks," much as those at Medjugorje, Bayside, and other locales.
But "God is not mocked" (Galatians 6:7/DRV). Often these "apparitions" reveal themselves as false to those who know the Catholic Faith well. For example, one of the images circulated by Garabandalites actually demonstrates its own falsity. This image of Mary shows her wearing a maniple, a priest's vestment worn on the arm only during Holy Mass. (Curiously, the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order did away with it.) It is even taken off when the celebrant delivers a sermon. That the Blessed Virgin Mary would be depicted wearing a priest's vestment is blasphemous, as the real Virgin would be the first to understand and condemn. Mary is not a priest and could never be one.
True Catholics, Our Lord warned in Sacred Scripture: "For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect" (Matthew 24:24/DRV). True Catholics must be very vigilant so as not to allow themselves to be deceived by false doctrine and false worship.

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I attend a Neo-SSPX site and was appalled recently when it staged a "Requiem Mass" for the Novus Ordo presbyter who was murdered in France. My understanding is that Newchurch no longer has valid priests and that such a person is simulating a phony Mess. Didn't the Neo-SSPX commit a grave sin by publicly "performing" a Requiem Mass for a phony presbyter? Is Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX no longer a traditional Catholic group and now essentially an arm of the heretical Newchurch of the New Order?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Fellay's Neo-SSPX might just as well have staged a phony Mess for the deceased Methodist minister down the street. The group that Fellay runs is not Archbishop Lefebvre's Society of St. Pius X. It is a new group, having leanings toward the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order. Fellay has been cunning in not officially changing the name of his new organization, in order that he can continue to trick his clueless membership. What you have described is just further proof of that fact, if any further proof were needed. This is the same fraud that Newchurch itself perpetrated, by continuing to use the term "Catholic," whereas what it is doing is anything but Catholic.
It's too bad that the Newpopes since the Vatican II Anti-council haven't been running brothels. At least they would have gotten some money out of them and cut into the Mafia's take. But, no, the Paedophile Newpopes decided to run a Paedophilia Ring to service inhouse Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters. For fifty years this moral corruption that cries out to Heaven for retribution, as the Scriptures put it, has been going on -- and is still going on.
While you can't put a price on the innocence of a child, you can put a price on just how much the Newchurch of the New Order has paid out in damages over the never-ending epidemic of child sodomy, rape, and sexual assault by Newchurch clergy under the regimes of the Paedophile Newpopes: Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio. And that price, according to the National Catholic Reporter, is conservatively a disgusting 4,000,000,000 -- that's four billion U.S. dollars. How much was paid under the table to child victims in hush-money Newvatican refuses to disclose. That amount of money has been stolen from the Newpopes from the Newchurch Protestants who blithely contribute to the collection-late. No wonder Newchurch can't support charitable activities, Most of the money it extorts from his clueless congregations goes to pay off for crimes perpetrated in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust.
A monk who worked at Newvatican under the Unsaint Newpope revealed to the press: "You wouldn’t believe the amounts of money the [New]church is spending to settle these sexual-abuse cases." Since the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) to 1992 -- ten years before Newchurch's Holocaust became public through the Boston Globe -- Newchurch dioceses in the United States alone had paid 400,000,000 dollars in hush-money to child victims. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Reporter.]
Francis-Bergoglio, who is an accomplice in these crimes, recently described the court-ordered payment of damages to the child victims as "generous." To Bergoglio, one of the victims replied: "If you gave me 100 years to pick a word to describe the U.S. [New]bishops reaction to this crisis, 'generous' would never make the list." Many of these niggardly Newbishops haven't even disclosed the names of the Newbishops and presbyter criminals and have lobbied against criminal and financial liability for the criminals. Bergoglio is the most perverted player yet in Newchurch's Holocaust, as described by one of the child victims' advocates:
This is a [New]pope [Francis-Bergoglio] who has refused to take steps to expose one predator or punish one enabler.... He could simply defrock, demote, discipline, or even clearly denounce just one complicit bishop. He refuses, not one.
True Catholics, it is undeniable that Newchurch has at its head a sexual pervert, who might as well be raping the children himself. The civil, canon, and Biblical law is that an accomplice is just as guilty as the perpetrator of a crime. The immoral Marxist Bergoglio loves to spout words, but takes no action to rout out the corruption in himself and his officials. In over three years he hasn't even appointed his promised Sex-crimes Commission. Why would he? He is obviously Hell-bent to facilitate the gravest of Mortal Sins among his Newclergy, which Scripture says makes his "worth of death" (Romans 1:32/DRV). He was bought and paid for by criminal Newcardinals at the 2013 conclave that elected him Newpope of Newchurch, which is in no way the Catholic Church.
Heresy is spreading in Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order. Now we have the scandalous scene of the German Newbishops taking the opportunity of the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther's Protestant Revolt to declare the Arch-heretic a "Gospel witness and teacher of the Faith." The Newbishops' reference was assumed to be to the Catholic Faith, which the Newbishops themselves abandoned in 1964 during the Vatican II Anti-council. It took the Newbishops a 206-page report to spout their own heresies.
One Newchurch official was at least honest enough to admit that Luther's revolt still "caused tensions in Germany" 500 years after Luther disputed the foundations of the Church. For further information, click on FAQ10: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Beliefs? in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files: FAQs and Traditional Apologetics department, in the section "Martin Luther."
Luther was excommunicated by Pope Leo X in January 1521 and outlawed by Holy Roman Emperor Charles V. One Newbishop proposed that Catholics pray together with the heretics -- a statement that reeks of the Heresy of Syncretism, traditionally condemned by the Catholic Church. Syncretism heretically teaches that "we all worship the same god" and "one religion is as good as another."
Because of Newchurch's fall from the Catholic Faith and the New Order sect's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, which continues to hit Germany hard, membership in Newchurch has sunk below one in three, to 29 per cent, now about equal to the number of heretical Protestant Evanglicals. Newchurch membership is sinking faster year by year. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic Herald.]
True Catholics, it is clear that the Newchurch of the New Order is not Catholic. As if any further proof of that fact were necessary, we now have the spectacle of its German Newbishops declaring the Arch-heretic a "witness and teacher of the Faith." Nor is all of this cozying up to the Protestant heretics doing Newchurch, itself heretical, any good. Newchurch membership is sinking like a rock around the world.
With Francis-Bergoglio's very public falling on his arse before millions of viewers at the Shrine of the Black Madonna in Czestochowa, Poland, on July 28, 2016, many are taking a new look at the incident that occurred on February 17, 2016, in Morella during his Newpapal junket to Mexico. On that date he tripped onto a man in a wheelchair. Later, he claimed that he was pushed, but in any case raged at bystanders and gave them the "Italian finger."
At the time Bergoglio was described as "apopletic," a word that can mean either out-of-control anger or a stroke. There have been reports for at least a year that Bergoglio is suffering from cerebral carcinoma. Be himself, now age 79, keeps talking about how he will not be around for even another four years. When Bergoglio fell on his arse in Czestochowa, he claimed that he was "distracted," a symptom of brain cancer, together with his reported cephalgia and paranoia. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by RT News.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's whole P.R.-created image as "Mr. Humble" and "Mr. Merciful" belie the reality of his being "Mr. Fraud" and "Mr. Nasty." Whether that is a deeply-embedded moral flaw or incipient symptoms of a dying man, as he himself seems to indicate, will undoubtedly become clear within just a year or two.
The Neo-SSPX's Bernie Fellay had better watch out! What happened to a Newchurch-recognized pseudo "Latin Mass" group in France could soon happen to all the Neo-SSPX sites if they sell out to Newchurch. The Institute of the Good Shepherd (L'Institut du Bon Pasteur) of Bordeaux, France, was founded on September 8, 2006, by five expelled Neo-SSPX priest-presbyters and given Pontifical rights from Newchurch's Ecclesia Dei Commission to use the Half New Order Mess of 1962+ (aka erroneously as the "Extraordinary Mess"). As it turned out, the "blessing" of Newchurch and its Newpopes were worthless.
On August 3, 2016, while one of the IBP priest-presbyters was simulating the "Mess of 1962+" in Neo-Gothic church of St. Rita in Paris, French police broke down the doors of the church and used tear-gas to remove the priest-presbyter and the congregation of 80 by force. The police were enforcing an administrative order obtained by the property developer, who intends to ear down the century-old church to build a parking lot. The priest-presbyter, while he was in the midst of the consecration, was dragged down the altar steps in full vestments.
Although the Institute has pleaded for the intervention of Francis-Bergoglio, with whom the Institute of the Good Shepherd is officially affiliated, Bergoglio has turned a deaf ear to the pleas of his own semi-traditionalists, whom he denounces as "fundamentalists." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the LS News.]
True Catholics, Bernie Fellay, Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX, wants to do the same thing as the Institute of the Good Shepherd did in 2006: sell out to Newchurch for a Half New Order "Indult" Mess. Francis-Bergoglio has disparaged Newchurch's semi-traditionalist "Indult" groups such as the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), the Institute of Christ the King High Priest (ICRSS), the Apostolic Administration of St. John Vianney (FSSJV), the Institute of St. Philip Neri of Berlin and Trier, the Fraternity of St. Vincent Ferrer Chémené-le-Roi, France, and the Oasis of Jesus Priest for being "fundamentalist." The same gutting will occur to Fellay's Neo-SSPX, whose new name proposed by Newchurch is the Apostolic Administration of Saint Saviour (AASS), when Fellay sells out to the New Order. Clearly, Fellay has lost his senses even to consider selling out -- and probably list his Catholic Faith too, long ago.
One thing that can certainly be said about these Newchurch bishops: they are wimps. Being ignorant of the Catholic Faith, they certainly can't stand up for it, even when someone goes against their own pronouncements. It is a fact, previously reported upon in these Daily Commentaries, and willingly admitted to by the man himself, that the self-proclaimed "devout Catholic" U.S. Vice President Joe Biden dared to give the finger to God and even the Newchurch of the New Order by simulating a phony "gay wedding." That is not too surprising because Biden is known for his frequent gaffes. He has a "short-circuited" brain. Thank God he hasn't yet gotten to put his finger on the nuclear button!
But what the addled Biden did is not even the worst part of this affair. On August 5, 2016, the President of the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops absolved Biden of any penalties. Let the murderer go free. Let the robber profit from his ill-gotten goods. We don't punish anyone, according to Newarchbishop Joseph Kurtz. The U.S. Newbishops are too much the wimps to take on -- my God -- His Eminence the apostate Vice President of the United States! Like his fellow wimp-Newbishops, Kurtz has probably never studied the Catholic Faith and the philosophical and legal principles on which it is based. The principle of the law, enunciated over 2,000 years ago, is:
Newarchbishop Kurtz was too wimped out even to address Biden by name. Instead, in the around-the-bush cowardice for which Newbishops are known and with which they have destroyed the Catholic Church among their number, Kurtz wrote: "When a prominent Catholic [sic] politician publicly and voluntarily officiates at a ceremony to solemnize the relationship of two people of the same-sex, confusion arises regarding Catholic teaching on marriage and the corresponding moral obligations of Catholics.
True Catholics, who is it who produced this confusion regarding Catholic teaching? None other than the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio himself. Bergoglio states that he is not empowered to judge homosexuality. Bergoglio states that his best friends are atheists. Bergoglio states that traditional Catholics are apostates. Bergoglio states that "there is no Catholic God." Bergoglio states that Marxists are "better" than Catholics. Bergoglio states that proselytizing for the Catholic faith is "nonsense." With Bergoglio teaching Marxism and apostasy, no wonder poor addled Joe Biden is "confused"!
As a former Newchurch seminarian has revealed to shockwaves across Ireland, Novus Ordo seminaries have become mere brothels run by "aggressive homosexual bullies," who are out of control. Francis-Bergoglio, who has already admitted that his Newchurch is run by a "Gay Lobby," refuses to rein these seminary presbyter-perverts in, just as he has refused to rein in paedophiles among his own Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters. The Newseminarian has charged that the Novus Ordo seminary of Ireland, once the seat of Catholicism, has degenerated far from teaching anything Catholic into homosexual brothels serving Benedict-Ratzinger's hierarchy.
The Newseminarian revealed that while he was attending St. Patrick's Seminary, Maynooth, outside of Dublin, Ireland, he was physically and mentally tortured by the "homosexual bullies," who had control of the institution. The Newseminarian described the "pain and horror" that he was forced to ensure. In one incident he described, homosexual bullies concealed in balaclavas attempted to intimidate him by throwing a bucket of dirt over him. In another incident, he was forced to dress up in women's clothes and entertain the seminary rector and his presbyters in drag. While he was satisfying the prurient desires of the Newseminary's clergy, other students tried to denude him by ripping off the dress. He was also subjected to phony "medical examinations," in which he was involuntarily forced, "scared and horrified," to denude himself to be probed by the perverts.
The Irish have been so shocked over the last decade by revelations of perversity among Newchurch clergy that the Irish Prime Minister warned Ex-Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger, who was the acting Newpope at the time, to stay away from Ireland for a planned religious festival because the Irish government could not assure his safety owing to the hatred of the Irish people toward Ratzinger's perverted Newchurch.
So shocking were the reports, circulated throughout the Irish press, as revealed by this Newseminarian, and others, of an "aggressive homosexual culture" having taken over the Novus Ordo seminary that the Newchurch Primate of All Ireland, Newarchbishop Eamon Martin, was forced on August 8, 2016, to call an emergency meeting of Irish Newbishops to determine whether the Newchurch seminary should be shut down. The Newarchbishop of Dublin, Diarmuid Martin, has publicly stated that Ireland's Newseminary is "poisonous" and has removed his Newseminarians from it. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Irish Independent.]
True Catholics, be warned. Don't ever allow your sons to go to a Newchurch "seminary" or be guilty of ruining their lives. You should be suspicious too of any "seminary" even peripherally associated to the Newchurch of the New Order, including Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX "institutions." Francis-Bergoglio is complicit in these grossly immoral practices and should be shunned by every true Catholic. Newchurch is by now, fifty years after the Vatican II Anti-council, exposed before the world as rotten to the core. No true Catholic can have any connection with it or risk being judged as an accomplice to the grave Mortal Sins in which Newchurch engages daily with the tacit and explicity consent of its Newpope head.
Newvatican has announced Francis-Bergoglio's prayer intentions for August 2016: the success of the secular Olympics. Yes, you read that right. Not conversion to the true Faith. Not a reduction in blasphemy against Christ, His Blessed Mother, and the Saints. Not a universal return to God's Moral Law. No: winning sports games!
In a way, this apostasy from religion, any religion, by the Marxist Newpope should not seem surprising. He has had a heavy hand in the destruction of the true Mass. He has corrupted Catholic doctrine beyond recognition. He exemplifies, as the Third Paedophile Newpope and head of Newvatican's Mafia Bank, a moral corruption not seen since before the "Bad Pope," Alexander VI-Borgia. No wonder Bergoglio no longer even thinks of religion, but instead secular matters such as sports.
True Catholics, the so-called "Modern" Olympics are just as corrupt as Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch: swimming areas filled with human excrement, a competing professional basketball team housed in a luxury liner, teenage girls sold into the slavery of 24/7 "sport" preparation, "Olympians" drugged to the hilt to win competitions. This is not the religious Olympics that Greece held from 776 B.C., which the Christian Roman Emperor Theodosius I finally banned because of their increasing paganism. Unlike Theodosius' Catholic Church, the Newchurch of the New Order that Francis-Bergoglio heads is not Catholic. It is not even Christian. It is essentially irreligious, being used as the mere shell of power, devoid of worship, doctrine, and morality, that it has become since 1964. No wonder that the world increasing despises Newchurch -- and Bergoglio.
On July 31, 2016, the face of the Newpapacy to the international press, presbyter Federico Lombardi, got the boot as Director of the Newvatican's Press Office for the ten years since 2006. His predecessor had held the post for 22 years. After serving the regimes of Benedict-Ratzinger and Francis-Bergoglio, Lombardi has been replaced by Gregory Burke, aged 56, of St. Louis, Missouri, who is not even a presbyter. Burke is member of the infamous Novus Ordo cult Opus Dei. For further information, click on FAQ10: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Beliefs? in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files: FAQs and Traditional Apologetics department, in the section "Opus Dei." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Zenit News Service.]
Lombardi has been described as taking a lower key approach compared to his predecessor, whereas his successor Burke is a revolutionary. Burke, as Vice Director of Newvatican's Press Office for merely the last five months, has been exposed as using his secular public-relations training at the Liberalist/Modernist Columbia University to create the false persona for the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio as "Mr. Humble" and "Mr. Innocent," whereas the reality has been that he is "Mr. Fraud," "Mr. Fraud," and the "Third Paedophile Newpope." The false persona is already falling apart.
Nevertheless, Lombardi did make a mess handling several matters. He was criticized by Newvatican officials for muffing the handling of traditional Catholic bishop Richard Williamson's interview on the World War II "Holocaust." Lombardi was quick to deny the charge when Benedict-Ratzinger was accused of being a member of the Hitler Youth (Hitlerjungend), whereas that charge was in fact true. Ratzinger was not only a member of the Hitler Youth, but even voluntarily joined the Nazi group at the early age of 15, whereas many of his fellow Bavarians refused to join at all. Ratzinger was also found to be registered in an anti-aircraft squadron whose purpose was to shoot down Allied planes. Ratzinger himself had admitted the charges in 1997, but the biased international press mostly gave the former Nazi a pass while they pilloried the traditional Catholic Williamson.
Lombardi, as a practitioner of the Vatican II Anti-council's Oecumenical heresy ("we all worship the same god," "one religion is as good as another"), has issued statements openly supporting Islamic violence, even against supposedly sacrosanct diplomatic missions. On one occasion he was even forced to recant.
True Catholics, Gregory Burke, as one of Francis-Bergoglio's meretricious lemmings, has well earned his place at the head of Bergoglio's false-propaganda machine, even though he isn't even a Novus Ordo presbyter. He will have his work cut out for him trying to defend to a world increasingly hostile to Bergoglio why the Third Paedophile Newpope and ultimate head of the Mafia Bank run by Newvatican, should be shown any respect whatsoever. Perhaps he can be booted out of his office just as Lombardi was out of his!
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
The Old Testament prophet Isaias spoke of the coming of Our Lord by saying: "And his name shall be called "Emmanuel" (7:14/DRV), but the angel Gabriel told the Blessed Virgin Mary: "thou shalt call his name Jesus" (Luke 1:31/DRV). Can you explain the discrepancy?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Actually, there is no discrepancy. Isaias uses not a name, but a title. Emmanuel means "God with us." Jesus is actually a given name, which was used by Jews at the time, and means "Saviour."
It would be appropriate here to point out that Christ is not a name either, but a title. It is the Latinized form of Christos, the word used in the Greek version of the Old Testament to translate literally the Hebrew term Messiah, meaning "The Anointed One," He Who was to deliver the Jewish people.
It is astonishing how many Catholics think that Our Lord's first name is Jesus and that His last name is Christ. Actually, the expression used in Greek, Iesous ho Christos is more accurate: Jesus the Christ, i.e., Jesus the Anointed One. When Mel Gibson titled his 2004 Biblical epic, The Passion of THE Christ, not "The Passion of Christ," he got it exactly right.
U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, who claims to be a "devout Catholic," issued a tweet on his official government Twitter account that he was "proud" to "marry" Brian and Joe, at his own house to boot. He attached the photograph reproduced above. Brian and Joe, the two "spouses" are White House staffers. Biden declined to state which was the "husband" and which was the "wife."
Biden, who for all his gaffs has acquired the nickname of "The Bumbler," has perhaps a tad of an excuse. He claims to attend the mindless and invalid Novus Ordo Mess and to pray the JPII-Wojtyla's phony "20-decade rosary." His head is so muddled with the erroneous New Order nonsense by this point that he is truly addled and verging on being non compos mentis.
"Catholic" Biden publicly and vehemently advocates abortion, embryonic stem cell research, and "gay marriage," which presumably includes "Lesbian marriage," "bisexual marriage," "transgender marriage," and "queer marriage." Yet gutless Newchurch has done nothing against Biden, just as it did nothing against "Catholic" pro-abortion wackos Speaker of the House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi and the late Senator Ted Kennedy. Biden blithely receives the Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid and even attended the "installation" Mess of Francis-Bergoglio (who was never crowned as a pope and has never been consecrated as a bishop or ordained as a priest), and there recommitted his multifarious sacrileges. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Vice President Biden.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's anti-Catholic Newchurch will even bother to lift a finger against Biden's sacrilege and impose a formal excommunication or even chastise him. You see, Newchurch is so cuckoo that it is essentially lawless. Marxist Bergoglio & Co., not being Catholic, just make up things as they go along. Bergoglio is probably even now preparing a formal St. Martha's House reception for the man who claims to be a "devout Catholic" and commits open sacrilege and blasphemy with complete impunity from Bergoglio "The Merciful."
Francis-Bergoglio has just made another mockery of Catholicism. On August 2, 2016, he appointed yet another commission to sneak women onto the Novus Ordo eucharistic dinner table as deaconesses. Just how important it is for Bergoglio to admit women to Novus Ordo his eucharistic dinner tables is clear when you consider that it has been over three years, and he has yet to appoint the his Commission on Paedophilia among Newchurch Clergy, which he promised to do upon his election as Newpope on March 13, 2016. The importance of the new commission is also indicated by the fact that its president will be Newarchbishop Archbishop Luis Ladaria Ferrer, who is Secretary to Newchurch's permanent Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith.
Bergoglio's hypocrisy is that just 14 years ago Newchurch's own International Theological Commission had already conducted an in-depth study of the matter and concluded that "no opening is possible regarding the installation of deaconesses." It is clear that Bergoglio is angling toward sneaking women around the Novus Ordo eucharistic dinner table. Traditional Catholics, of course, know that Newchurch has not ordained even male deacons or priests since 1968, but merely "installs" invalid Protestantized ministers, and has not had a valid Mass since at least 1969, but merely conducts an invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Order service, which is most definitely not a Catholic Mass. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Service.]
True Catholics, Novus Ordo deaconesses would prove a very big problem for the Neo-SSPX's Superior-Dictator Bernie Fellay, who, if he finally joins the New Order sect, as he has again threatened to do, could be forced to accept deaconesses, and eventually priestesses, at his Neo-SSPX sites, which are already trending Novus Ordo at many of his sites. Fellay can't opt completely out of the Novus Ordo once he becomes a part of it. That is what the Fraternity of St. Peter, the Fraternity of St. John Vianney, the Institute of Christ the King, and the Institute of the Good Pastor found out within a few years after they went Novus Ordo via "Personal Prelatures."
Just days after Mohammedan terrorists slit the throat of Newchurch presbyter Jacques Hamel in Normandy, France, another Mohammedan terrorist stabbed a Belgian presbyter in his rectory on July 31, 2016. When the terrorist was admitted, he stabbed and robbed presbyter Jos Vanderlee at knife-point and fled the scene, which was the city of Lanaken near the Belgian border with the Netherlands.
It has not been established for a certainty that the attacker was affiliated with the Islamic State "at this stage of the investigation" (on the day of the attack), but Belgium has already been the scene of several Mohammedan terrorist attacks. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Belgian newspaper Het Nieuwsblad.]
True Catholics, for fifty years now the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order has been telling us that "we all worship the same god" and that "one religion is as good as another." This is what is known as the Vatican II Anti-council's (1962-1965) Oecumenist Heresy. As the old saying goes, "What goes around comes around." With the Newpopes after the Anti-council embracing Islamophilia and becoming advocates for Mohammedan Infidels rather than traditional Catholics, the infidelity of Newchurch to the Catholic Faith is now starting to reap its own justice, as the Islamic terrorists are now turning more and more to Newchurch clergy as their targets. Obviously, they too believe that the purported Islamophilia of Bergoglio and his presbyters is a ruse. The terrorist are already threatening to do in Newvatican and its Newpope.
Francis-Bergoglio continues to go off the deep end, leading even his own Newchurch Protestants around the world to question whether he is in reality a pope. On August 1, 2016, Bergoglio told the international press on his return from the immoral World Youth Day in Poland that "Islam is not tied to terrorist violence." The Marxist Newpope is obviously living in an alternative reality. When the Islamic terrorists blow up his Newvatican, as they have threatened to do, he will probably continue to deny reality -- if the terrorists don't kill him in the process, that is.
At the press conference Bergoglio refused to speak of "Islamic violence." Instead, he chose to lash out at traditional Catholics, whom he calls "fundamentalist Catholics," who perpetrate "Catholic violence." When reporters questioned his silence about the dangers facing Christians in Turkey after an abortive coup prompted a resurgence of Islamic power, Bergoglio refused to comment.
Bergoglio continued his narrative that he would be dead before the end of the decade. He told the international press that he did not expect to be Newpope in 2019 when the next World Youth Day is held in Panama. He also told a cover story for his very public fall on his arse at the Shrine of the Black Madonna in Czestochowa. Rather than publicly admitting that he was suffering from cerebral carcinoma, as some international press sources have reported, he instead tried to issue a cover story that he was "distracted" -- which is, in any case, a symptom of brain cancer, as are cephalgia and paranoia. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio is a flaming Marxist-Modernist heretic, who views those who are Catholic as his enemies, while he views homosexuals, atheists, and Marxists as his "friends." We get that; we expect no more from a Marxist. What we don't get is how clueless people like the Neo-SSPX's Bernie Fellay are drawn like flies to his lethal candle flame. The SSPX's Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre publicly couldn't rejected the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla. Can you imagine what that traditional Catholic Archbishop would have said about the flaming Marxist-Modernist Bergoglio?
Francis-Bergoglio has created yet another doctrinal firestorm in his document, issued on July 27, 2016, by his Pontifical Council for the Family. His document, released in conjunction with World Youth Day, omits any role of the parents in their children's moral lives and doesn't even mention the Sixth Commandments, giving Newchurch youth the idea that all sex acts are moral. Such an implied false teaching goes entirely against the teaching of Christ and His Church: "For know you this and understand, that no fornicator, or unclean, or covetous person (which is a serving of idols), hath inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God" (Ephesians 5:5/DRV).
"More souls go to Hell because of sins of the flesh than for any other reason," Our Lady of Fatima warned the three young seers in 1917. But Bergoglio has dissed Our Lady in yet another of his anti-Catholic "teachings." He has completely ignored the Sixth and Ninth Commandments, but instead recommends the use of "soft porn" films such as 2010's Love and Other Drugs, as an excuse for "discussion." This new document bears a strong connection to Bergoglio's recent Exhortation, Amoris laetitia, the Joy of Sex.
The Marxist Newpope contradicts Catholic teaching by propounding that the responsibility for sex education is not that of the parents, but of secular "educational institutions." Bergoglio's document doesn't even mention the relevant serious sins: homosexual acts, adultery, fornication, and abortion, inter alia. Nor does Bergoglio mention Christ's teaching on marriage or celibacy as a higher form of love. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Vatican Information Services.]
True Catholics, if Francis-Bergoglio were trying to show himself as an anti-Catholic, immoral, Marxist CEO of Newchurch, he couldn't be doing a better job! His initial "shine," however, is rapidly wearing off, as even more and more Newchurch Protestants are getting sick and tired of his heresies and immoralities -- yes, and even his phony Messes, which even he can no longer physically "stand" for.
It turns out that there is more to the story of presbyter Jacques Hamel, who was beheaded in a Newchurch temple on July 27, 2016, while simulating the invalid Novus Ordo Mess. Ironically, Hamel was attacked because of his own stupidity for practicing Newchurch's false doctrine of "Oecumenism." This heresy, advanced at the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), teaches that "we all worship the same god" and that "one religion is as good as another." This heretical teaching contradicts the popes and councils of the Catholic Church, which has condemned such a notion as the heresy of Syncretism, an offshoot of the all-encompassing heresy of Modernism.
Presbyter Hamel had donated land from the historical Catholic church in Saint-Etienne-du-Rouvray, France, in 2000 to the Islmists to build thereon a mosque of Yahya. Thus the presbyter had committed a very public Mortal Sin of Blasphemy. Ironically, again, it was in that very mosque that the presybter's killer was radicalized. The mosque was built right beside the once-Catholic church, now taken over by the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order. In this cozy arrangement, the presbyter also allowed the Islamists to use the parish hall and other facilities during the despicable Ramadan period. Hamel was said to have had "a close relationship with the imam" of the mosque. In the end, it did the unfortunate presbyter no good with the Infidels, who slit his throat for his "Oecumenism."

Presbyter Hamel's demise was rife with irony. He committed the Mortal Sin of Blasphemy, (2) engaged in the Mortal Sin of Syncretism, (3) was killed by an Islamist who was radicalized at the very mosque for which the presbyter blasphemously had given the land, stolen from the Catholic church. Instead of selling out to the Islamists, the presbyter should have been trying to convert them to Catholicism. But, to be sure, Hamel was no "martyr." He was not even a Catholic priest, only a Newchurch presbyter. He could not convert the Islamists to the Catholic faith that he himself did not possess. And that is the real irony in l'affaire de Jacques.
The Neo-SSPXers kept telling us that we were wrong. They kept telling us that Bernie Fellay, the Neo-SSPX's Superior-Dictator, was a straight shooter and that he would never sell out to the New Order sect and its Marxist Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio, who is so unbalanced that he keeps falling, literally. Well, the Neo-SSPXers had better be getting their parachutes ready fast. They need to get away from Fellay and his Neo-SSPX now while the getting is good. One hundred of Fellay's priests and thousands of his Neo-SSPXers have already abandoned him because of his treason.
The TRADITIO Network has had Fellay's number for almost two decades, as documented here, but now the cat is out of the bag for all the world to see, including Fellay's cuckolded Neo-SSPXers. Bernie "Mr. Fraud" Fellay is now putting the finishing touches on his sellout to the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order. On July 28, 2016, the Secretary of the "Ecclesia Dei" Commission admitted that Fellay had already accepted the personal prelature "solution." But the details are still being worked out.
What a liar Fellay is! It was only on June 29, 2016, that Fellay sent out a press release, forced upon him by his District Superiors, that he had essentially broken off negotiations to sell out the Neo-SSPX. The truth is that he has been consistently working behind the scenes, as the TRADITIO Network has consistently reported, to shaft his District Superiors and all of his blindsided Neo-SSPXers.
So, what do Neo-SSPXers have to look forward to if they don't get away now from the treason of Fellay? All they have to do is look at what happened to all the other groups that claimed to be "traditional" and then sold out to the Newchurch of the New Order:
True Catholics, who knows what Providence has in store? Sellouts have been attempted before and been almost miraculously quashed, most notably in 2009, when the ink was almost dry on a sellout document when the action of Neo-SSPX's senior bishop, Richard Williamson, intervened completely unexpectedly.
