As previously reported in these Daily Commentaries, overnight on February 4, 2017, hundreds of posters were pasted up all over Rome denouncing Francis-Bergoglio as "merciless" for violating international law in "decapitating" the sovereign order of the Knights of Malta and using an image of him scowling in hatred.
Until now, Bergoglio has refused to reply to the charges, but on February 22, he directed his propaganda office to protect his mug shot, which was used on the posters. This action was clearly a reaction to the posters that appeared in Rome recently, criticizing Francis-Bergoglio as a tyrant. As if this action weren't bad enough, Bergoglio's Newvatican announced that it had constituted a spy department against citizens to "carry out systematic surveillance activities to monitor the ways in which the image of the [Un]holy Father" and the coats of arms of the Holy See [sic] are used, taking appropriate action where necessary." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
True Catholics, it seems that Francis-Bergoglio, is now aping fellow Marxist tyrants, like Vladimir Lenin and Joseph Stalin, in constituting spy operations against citizens like the infamous Komitet Gosudarstvennoj Bezopastnosti, or Committee for State Security, commonly known as the KGB. Could Bergoglio be any more of an anti-Catholic tyrant? Just wait and see!
Personally, I hope that Bernie Fellay sells his Neo-SSPX out to Francis-Bergoglio's anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order and gets it over with. These last 23 years of dragging it out has killed many souls and ruined many families. Bernie must once and for all either sell out or declare that his Neo-SSPX will not come back to "Rome" until "Rome" (what Archbishop Lefebvre termed the fake "Modernist Rome") returns to the Catholic Faith.
If Bernie sells out, I'm betting that there will be numerous Neo-SSPX priests who will leave him and his pseudo-SSPX. Last time he came close to a sellout, one out of every six of his priests abandoned him and his Neo-SSPX. I and many other once-SSPX laymen have already left him and found truly traditional Catholic priests for the fully-traditional Latin Mass (Fellay's Neo-SSPX uses the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II "Mess of 1962") and Sacraments.
In my opinion and in the opinion of a growing number of traditional Catholics, Bernie Fellay has hurt the traditional Catholic Church far more than the New Order sect has.
The false hero of the pseudo-traditionalists, the duplicitous Newcardinal Ray Burke, has now been exposed for what he is. He reveled in the notoriety that he received when it was reported that he was instrumental in engineering the removal of the Chancellor of the Knights of Malta, Albert von Boeselager, who was caught using Knights funds to pay for prophylactics for prostitutes. But now Francis-Bergoglio has illegally intruded into the Knights, who are supposed to be sovereign under international law, and engineered the reinstatement of Boeselager, who is well connected with the corrupt officers of Bergoglio's Vatican Bank, being investigated by the European Union for corruption and money-laundering.
So, Burke has now found himself fired by Bergoglio as Newvatican's ambassador to the Knights and is desperately trying to recover what little of his ruined reputation he can. On February 20, 2017, he denied, contrary to the statement of the Grand Master (head) of the Knights, Fra' Ludwig Hoffman von Rumerstein, that it was Burke who had asked for the resignation of Albert von Boeselager at the order of Francis-Bergoglio. Bergoglio, of course, denies that Burke was ever given such an order.
Caught in his hypocritical acts, Burke, like Pontius Pilate, has tried to wash his dirty hands of the matter. Burke has also been highly defensive about his demotion by Bergoglio to exile in Guam, supposedly to take testimony in the case of a paedophile Newarchbishop there. Newvatican issued a statement during the week of February 11, 2017, that contradicted Burke's own statement. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by National Catholic Register.]
True Catholics, poor Ray Burke! The man has fouled up every assignment that he has been given: in LaCrosse, Wisconsin, where he "consecrated" a transgendered "nun"; in St. Louis, Missouri, where he bullied a conservative Newparish; in Newrome, where he botched his ambassadorship with the Knights of Malta; and now in Guam, where his investigation of a paedophile Newarchbishop has involved him in a sex scandal. This man is no "traditionalist," but an abortive attention-grabber, who will metamorphose like a chameleon into whatever he thinks will advance his career -- a career that is now utterly destroyed.
Now 93, Gregory Baum, a peritus at the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), now admits that he was a secret homosexual at the anti-council and led a "gay" cabal there. Presbyter Baum spilled the beans in his new book, The Oil Has Not Run Dry: The Story of My Theological Pathway.
The secret "gay" cabal at Vatican II proposed the first draft of the anti-conciliar document Nostra aetate, which floated the traditionally-condemned "oecumenical" heresy that "all religions are the same" and "we all worship the same god." That document also included the heretical notion that Jews were no longer to be converted to Christianity, but could find their own path -- a notion completely in contradiction to the teaching of St. Paul in the New Testament. Moreover, Baum pushed the Marxist notion of "social justice" and the murderous "Liberation Theology" against conservative leaders in Latin America, embraced by the Newjesuits and their member, Jorge Bergoglio, now Newpope Francis of the New Order sect.
Presbyter Baum admitted that he had been a liar at Vatican II. He didn't have the guts to admit that he was a homosexual then because, as he said, it "would have reduced my influence as a critical theologian. I was eager to be heard as a theologian trusting in God as Salvator Mundi and committed to social justice, liberation theology, and global solidarity.” Baum was also influential in the Newchurch in Canada despite his openly heretical positions on sexuality, where he pressured the Canadian Newbishops to refuse to endorse the teaching of Humanae vitae, Paul VI-Montini's 1968 encyclical letter against artificial contraception. Presbyter Baum first engaged in sodomy at age 40 in London and then married a divorced ex-nun.
Presbyter Baum played a key role during the anti-council. He served in various capacities on the commissions charged with preparing documents. Beginning his work in November 1960, he concluded it with the anti-council's end in December 1965. One Newmonsignor denounced Baum as having “done more than any person to harm the Church in Canada." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]
True Catholics, as the heretic Modernists continue to fess up at the threshold of death, traditional Catholics are confirmed in their judgment that the anti-council was a hotbed of heresy, Marxism, and -- as the case of presbyter Baum proves -- sodomites to boot.
Francis-Bergoglio has expelled Newcardinal Ray "Bully" Burke out of Newrome to Guam for his final assignment, adjudicating the case of an altar-boy, aged 15, who was sodomized by longtime Newarchbishop Anthony Apuron there. Apuron is facing numerous charges of sex crimes against children. But Burke has been stymied. The boy will not testify because Burke denied him having his counsel present.
Burke was appointed to the case in October 2016, before he was fired by Francis-Bergoglio as the Newpapal ambassador to the sovereign Knights of Malta, which Bergoglio illegally took over, thereby violating international law. In 2014 Bergoglio had already fired Burke as chief justice of Newvatican's Newpapal court known as the Apostolic Signatura. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
True Catholics, survivors of Newchurch clergy's sex crimes against children have long criticized Burke's deplorable record as a Newarchbishop in the United States in handling the cases of criminal paedophile presbyters. Thus, it is no surprise at all that Francis-Bergoglio would put the Burkian fox in charge of the children's henhouse. It is just that kind of corruption that has created Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, which continues unabated to this day.
What the mendacious Bernie Fellay, the Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX, didn't tell you is that the Neo-SSPX bishops, along with the Neo-SSPX's Mother Superior for all Sisters in the world, were in Newrome in January 2017 to discuss the details of their "return" to the Newchurch of the New Order.
And, for me, the clearest sign of Fellay's careening surrender to the Newchurch of the New Order, which the founder of the original traditional Society of St. Pius X, Archbishop Lefebvre, denounced as "Modernist Rome," is the fact that Fellay has purchased a house in Rome with the help of a New Order archbishop. This, no doubt, will be the Neo-SSPX headquarters when Bernie "Judas" Fellay signs on the dotted line to become an official New Order sellout in good standing.
Good people, do not be so foolish as to think that this house is just another Neo-SSPX Mass site, as there is already such a site, along with a house of formation in the Neo-SSPX sect, just outside of the city of Rome.
On February 15, 2017, Francis-Bergoglio fired the Newarchbishop of Cremona, Italy, because he criticized Bergoglio and the slew of Modernist/Leftist Newbishops that Bergolio has been appointing to replace conservatives. Bergolio's appointment of Newbishops, in less than four years, now totals 25 per cent. Newarchbishop Luigi Negri was allegedly overheard on a train in a conversation with his private secretary criticizing Bergoglio. Negri was the leader of the conservative wing of the Italian Newbishops.
Francis-Bergoglio hates conservatives and has called them filthy epithets that have never before been heard from the mouth of one who claims to be a pope. Bergoglio wasted no time appointing in his place a Modernist/Leftist who denies the Church's teaching on national borders and advocates the wholesale importation into Europe of Islamists, many of whom are terrorists.
Negri had allegedly said to his private secretary that he hoped the Madonna would work a miracle and cause Francis-Bergoglio to have a short reign, as did John Paul I-Luciani, who died after just 33 days. None of the alleged earwitnesses to the conversation were named. Negri is also among the most staunchly anti-abortion Newchurch prelates in Italy, declaring that he would not give the Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid to leftist Italian politicians who support "civil unions" for homosexuals and lesbians. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the German News Service Crux.]
True Catholics, as the TRADITIO Network's Canadian Correspondent has frequently reported in these Daily Commentaries, Francis-Bergoglio has been replacing "conservative" Newbishops with Modernist/Leftist Newbishops at an ever-accelerating rate. Those who fallaciously think that some future Newpope will set things straight have another think coming!
No one can believe anything Francis-Bergoglio says. Remember his statement that priestess for Newchurch (but not deaconnesses) are out because "Saint" JPII-Wojtyla said so? Well, it isn't so. Now, he has planted a story in an official Newvatican publication proposing an "open door" policy for priestesses. This is how things are done in the post-Vatican II duplicitous Newvatican -- not by clear, direct teaching, but by indirection, nuancing, and fogging.
The Newjesuit publication, Civiltà Cattolica, which is officially issued by Newchurch in Newrome, has published an article that questions the Catholic doctrine against priestesses and even "Saint" JPII-Woytyla's own supposedly "irreformable" teaching that priestess are invalid. Francis-Bergoglio instead is (anonymously) contradicting his public statement that concurs with Wojtyla. This is how the mendacious Newvatican and Newpopes operate, in contravention of Our Lord's command: "But let your speech be yea, yea: no, no: and that which is over and above these, is of evil" (Matthew 5:37/DRV).
The article was approved in advance by the publication's editor, who is a key adviser to Bergoglio, and the author of the article is the publication's deputy editor. Bergoglio himself is a member of the anti-Catholic Newjesuits, known for their "Liberation Theology" of assassinating conservative leaders in South America. The article questions whether the statement in JPII-Wojtyla's document Ordinatio Sacerdotalis is an authoritative and binding statement upon Newchurch and its (non-existent) magisterium, even though the Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith decreed in 1995 that Wojtyla's Newpapal teaching was definitive and must be “considered as belonging to the Deposit of the Faith."
JPII-Wojtyla declared the issue closed and banned any discussion of it. Nevertheless, Francis-Bergoglio has allowed the article to be published, raising "tensions" between the traditional doctrine and the work of Modernist theologians. The author states that Sacred Tradition should not always be followed. That statement is outright heresy in a Newvatican publication approved by Bergoglio, who has already opened the question of deaconnesses.
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio doesn't have the guts to come right out and say that he is not a Catholic and wants to change completely the foundation of his Newchurch to concur with the heretical teachings of Martin Luther, whom he has publicly praised. As usual, Bergoglio is playing both ends against the middle: trying to fool the conservatives while secretly plotting the introduction of Modernist heresies into his anti-Catholic Newchurch.
Poor Francis-Bergoglio! He was all ready to sell out Newchurch to the Chinese Communist government, but now China has completely snubbed him, telling him on February 13, 2017, that it has "dismissed any possibility that bishops [sic] of the 'underground' Church will be recognized by the government." These are the Newbishops attached to Francis-Bergoglio's New Order sect.
The sect that is called "Underground" by convention refers to the Newvatican and Novus Ordo-associated group, which the Chinese government opposes. This group is not Catholic and is invalid, as the Newchurch of the New Order, to which it adheres, is invalid. The sect that is called the Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association refers to the group approved by the Chinese government. This sect, although it is tied to the Communist regime, retains the Apostolic succession and thus continues to consecrate valid bishops, whereas the "Underground" Newbishops are invalidly "installed" under the New Ordinal of 1968. Parts of the "Patriotic" sect may still be using the valid Traditional Latin Mass and Sacraments. At least this was true around 2000, as seen from television broadcasts; little has been heard since then.
Liu Bainian, the head of the Chinese Catholic Patriotic Association, which is the group recognized by the Chinese government, parts of which continue to use the Traditional Latin Mass and Sacraments, said that the Novus Ordo "underground" bishops are "unfit." Francis-Bergoglio's Newcardinal John Tong Hon, of Hong Kong, had falsely stated that an agreement on the appointment of bishops appeared imminent and that Newvatican would recognize the "Patriotic" bishops, who have been appointed by the government, in return for having its own Newbishops recognized by the government. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by South China Morning Post..]
True Catholics, the Chinese government has now blown out of the water the fake news from Newvatican. It is just more false propaganda from Francis-Bergoglio, who, as a Marxist himself. wants to play up to the Communist Chinese government.
The usual pseudo-traditionalists are starting to emerge from their warrens in defense of the "personal prelature" trap for Fellay's Neo-SSPX. Bernie Fellay, the Neo-SSPX's Superior-Dictator, is disposed to fly around and around the Bergoglian flame and then plunge headlong into it. He sees in that fire an extension of his position in Novus Ordo purple for another twenty years, but he will be burned after a few short years! In brief, the personal prelature spider web is wrong for three reasons.
First, it is the wrong juridical structure. If Newrome were honest about making a fair arrangement, it would be offering the international and de facto personal Newdiocese or even Newarchdiocese structure enabled by Newcanon 372.2. Instead, Francis-Bergoglio's Newcardinal Gerhard Muller, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith, insists on the personal prelature trap. Under Newcanon 297, with this provision, Newdiocesan bishops get veto power over the extension of Fellay's Neo-SSPX into their respective Newdioceses. In addition, under a personal prelature, the lay supporters of the Neo-SSPX will remain subject at law to the local Novus Ordo establishment. It is Newchurch's formula for extinguishing once and for all the traditional Catholic work of Archbishop Marcel Lefebve.
Secondly, Fellay has repeatedly undertaken not to accept a practical arrangement until doctrinal problems have been solved. In July 2016 Fellay assured his regional superiors of this. But this is merely a mendacious charade on the part of Fellay. The doctrinal problems cannot be solved because Newchurch is not Catholic, and it is becoming more and more a luciferian organization.
Thirdly, the state of necessity that justified the Society's position for decades is much greater, not less, today than it was in the past. One pseudo-traditionalist commentator was so naive as to claim that the personal prelature will outlast successive Newpopes. Even if that were so, successive Newpopes will all be Francis-Bergoglio's fellow-travelers. They could then easily eviscerate "Mess of 1962" and replace Fellay with a Newchurch prelate, just has he replaced "conservative" Newcardinal Ray Burke with one of his own as ambassador to the internationally-sovereign Knights of Malta, which Bergoglio illegally gutted like a fish.
As for reversing this Satanic Newpope, Newcardinal Gerhard Muller, who is a heretic himself, has already sacrificed what little honor he had by not correcting the Newbishops of Germany, Malta, Argentina, and San Diego, to name just some. The personal prelature trap is about to be sprung. Francis-Bergoglio wants the little Neo-SSPX fishes to enter into the trap, so he will give them some peace for a short interval. It is always calm just before a hurricane arrives.
Just as "conservative" Newchurchers launched a campaign against Francis-Bergoglio's heretical and tyrannical acts with a flurry of anti-Bergoglio posters all over Rome and with a mocking issue of Bergoglio's official newspaper, U.S. President Donald Trump's Chief Strategist, Steve Bannon, formerly the Executive Chairman of the Breitbart News Service, has been aligning himself with Neocon Newchurhers who are fighting Bergoglio and his Marxist Newvatican.
Anti-Francis posters appeared all over Rome last week, with a message in a Roman street dialect saying, "Hey, Frank, you took over Congregations, suspended priests, decapitated the Order of Malta and the Franciscans of The Immaculate, ignored Cardinals ... Where the heck is your mercy?"
White House Chief Strategist Steve Bannon, a Newchurcher, has forged an alliance with Newchurch "conservatives," who oppose Francis-Bergoglio's heretical and tyrannical acts. During a recent visit to Newrome, Bannon struck up friendships with noted conservatives. In a July 2014 conference held inside Newvatican, Bannon had given a Neocon-based address, saying:
We're at the very beginning stages of a very brutal and bloody conflict, of which, if the people in this room, the people in the Church [sic], do not bind together and really form what I feel is an aspect of the Church Militant, really to be able not just to stand with our beliefs, but to fight for our beliefs against this new barbarity that's starting, barbarity that would completely eradicate everything we've been bequeathed over the last 2,000, 2,500 years [will take over]. We are in an outright war against jihadist Islamic fascism. And this war is, I think, metastasizing far quicker than governments can handle it.
Francis-Bergoglio's declining supporters inside Newvatican reportedly worry that following U.S. President Trump's election victory, Bergoglio is becoming increasingly isolated as a Marxist/Leftist. Bergoglio's critics have thus become emboldened to speak out against his heresies and tyrannies. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the New York Times.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio is on the run. The world is increasingly turning against this Marxist Newpope. U.S. President Trump during the recent U.S. electoral campaign called Bergoglio out on his hypocrisy and his anti-Catholic doctrine regarding the natural right of countries to exist and to protect their borders from those who would destroy them. The anti-Bergoglio voices are getting louder and louder -- finally!
"Conservative" Newchurchers have struck Francis-Bergoglio again. After affixing critical posters all over Rome denouncing his tyranny in taking over the internationally-sovereign Knights of Malta and his attempts to impose a new anti-Biblical doctrine approving of divorce-remarriage bigamy, Bergoglio's own "conservative" Newchurch critics, who are becoming increasingly outspoken, published a mock issue of Newvatican's official newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano, on February 10, 2017, which lampooned Bergoglio for his tyrannical acts involving "mercy" over morals.
The mocking L'Osservatore Romano front page has been making the rounds at the same time that hundreds of very real anti-Bergoglio posters appeared on Roman posters on February 5, 2017. The main headline, "Ha riposto!" [He responded!], refers to Francis' adamant refusal to respond to four Newcardinals who publicly demanded that he clarify his heretical position in favor of divorce-remarriage bigamy contrary to Christ's explicit statements in Sacred Scripture. The posters, featuring a sour-faced pope, remain up a week later. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.
True Catholics, it is too bad that these "conservative" Newchurchers didn't stand up after the Vatican II Anti-council against the New Order sect, with its invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New" Mess and sacraments, and its anti-Catholic doctrine and morality. Now it's too little and too late: Newchurch and its Newpopes are dying in front of the world's eyes, now despised and mocked -- as they so richly deserve to be.
On February 3, 2017, was published Francis-Bergoglio's address warning against traditionalist organizations, leading to speculation that he is about to shut down the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), the Institute of Christ the King (ICRSS), the Fraternity of St. John Vianney (FSSJV), the Institute of the Good Pastor (IBP), and other traditionalist organizations within Newchurch. Of course, we know that these organizations are deceptive agents of the Newchurch of the New Order and are not traditional at all. Their clergy are installed not by Catholic bishops, but by unconsecrated Newbishops. Their Messes are just as invalid as the New Order Messes simulated by New Order presbyters.
Bergoglio warned against new religious orders with a "traditionalist" mentality. He implied that he would not approve any more such orders and might even dissolve those that currently exist. So much for Newchurchers who think that they can hide with Half Novus Ordo Mess of 1962+ simulated by unordained presbyters.
Bergoglio stated that he is "worried about the rise of some new religious institutes that attract many religious vocations, but which then fail" and singled out "traditionalist [orders] seemingly providing security when in reality they preach rigidity." He deplored traditionalists as "Pelagians," a term that he has used before, referring to those who "seem ready to do anything for the defense of faith and morality." That quality was once referred to as "Catholicism" -- but not by Bergoglio, who himself engages in heresy from Catholicism.
True Catholics, any "conservative" Newchurch who thinks that he can sit in the back of a Novus Ordo temple with his traditional handmissal is gravely mistaken. Such a person sins worse than a Novus Orrdinarian because the "conservative" knows the truth and compromises with the anti-Catholic Newchurch. The Novus Ordinarian may just be dumb.
On February 3, 2017, Francis-Bergoglio's admitted to a group of 140 male religious superiors that "there is corruption inside the [New]vatican." The transcript of the encounter was published by the Newjesuit-run magazine La Civiltà Cattolica. Even a broken clock gets the time correct twice a day. Yes, there is corruption in Francis-Bergoglio's Newvatican -- big time. But be comforted: Bergoglio says that he is "at peace." Well, the children who are being raped and sodomized by his officials certainly aren't. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
True Catholics, what Francis-Bergoglio won't admit to you and the world is that he himself is the active agent of the corruption, not merely its passive victim, as he falsely likes to portray himself. Until Newchurch recognizes that fact -- and it is just beginning to -- it is dead.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I keep hearing the term "Holy Spirit" in place of "Holy Ghost." Newchurch says that it is okay, but the late Fr. Gommar DePauw, founder of the Catholic Traditionalist Movement in 1964, said never to change "Holy Ghost" to "Holy Spirit." And he was a canon lawyer with highest honors from the Louvain Catholic University, the same level as Archbishop Fulton Sheen attained. Which is the correct phrase for traditional Catholics to use in English: 'Holy Ghost' or 'Holy Spirit'?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
"Ghost" in English comes from the German "Geist," meaning "spirit." Over time in English, the meaning of the word "ghost" became narrower, just as the English word "meat," which originally meant any food (as in the phrase "meat and drink"), has come to have a narrower meaning. This is the bane of the vulgar tongues (like English), which is the reason why the Church does not use vulgar tongues, but the Sacred Latin Language when referring to unchangeable things like the Sacred Liturgy, Sacred Theology, etc.
The more traditional usage is "Holy Ghost." This is now a frozen phrase in English and has only one particular reference: the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity. For that reason, it is to be preferred to "Holy Spirit," because the latter phrase has, in the Newchurch of the New Order, became reduced to meaning "Spirit," then to "spirit," and now into a non-descript, generic meaning, e.g., the "spirit of Vatican II," which has no reference to the Holy Ghost at all!
So, traditional Catholics should maintain the unmistakable term "Holy Ghost" for the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity. Better yet, use Latin in your common prayers, as St. Francis of Assisi and other Saints recommended. That way you won't encounter the problem of phony "translations."
In Sydney, Australia, the Royal Commission into the Institutional Responses to Child Sexual Abuse, Australia's highest investigating body, prompted by widespread charges of sex crimes perpetrated by Newchurch presbyters upon children, heard for the first time the extent of the crimes: fully 7 per cent of presbyters in Australia's Newchurch were implicated in such crimes. Between 1980, when the "Unsaint" Newpope JPII-Wojtyla came to power in Newchurch, through 2015, after the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio came to power, 4,444 children reported that they had been sodomized, raped, and otherwise sexually assaulted by Newchurch clergy and other Newchurch officials in 1,000 Newchurch institutions. The average age of the child victims was 10.5 for girls and 11.5 for boys.
Meanwhile, right in Francis-Bergoglio's backyard, in Padua, Italy, one of the Newpope's presbyters faces criminal charges because it came to light that he organized "orgies" on Newchurch property. Presbyter Andrea Contin was accused of always carrying a "briefcase full of vibrators, sex toys, masks and bondage equipment." He had as many as 30 paramours. The 48-year-old presbyter concealed pornographic home videos in covers with the names of various popes inscribed.
The presbyter also supplied prostitutes to men on wife-swapping web sites. One of the paramours accused the presbyter of encouraging her to engage in bestiality, that is, sexual relations with a horse. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
True Catholics, clearly Francis-Bergoglio and his Newchurch of the New Order are out of control. Recent reports indicate that they continue to be engaged in paedophile crimes, allow Mafiosi to operate within the Vatican Bank, and are violating international law to garner money to shore up sinking Newvatican finances. There is nothing Catholic left in this man. Bergoglio, the Marxist Third Paedophile Newpope is wresting away from Pope Alexander VI-Borgia the title of "The Bad Pope."
The bishop of the German Evangelical Lutheran Church, Kirsten Fehrs, has outed Francis Bergoglio as a "hidden Protestant" at a February 6, 2017, convention of world religions. She indicated specifically that she had reached this judgment because of Bergoglio's March 19, 2016, document Amoris laetitia (The Joy of Sex), in which Bergoglio indicates his desire to accept into "communion" -- that is, the invalid Protestantized Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid -- with his New Order sect those Newchurchers who divorce and remarry as bigamists in violation of Christ's clear doctrine.
Our Lord Jesus Christ, Whom Bergoglio is powerless to overrule, stated quite clearly in Sacred Scripture: "Every one that putteth away his wife and marrieth another commiteth adultery; and he that marrieth her that is put away from her husband committeth adultery" (Luke 16:18/DRV, likewise St. Matthew and St. Mark).
Francis-Bergoglio's Protestant position is not surprising, given that Newchurch's "communion," which it prefers to call "eucharist" (with a lower-case "e") is an invalid Protestant concoction, fabricated at the invalid Protestantized "New Mess" by unordained New Order presbyters, who are de facto Protestant ministers.
Francis-Bergoglio has concurred with Fehrs and other Protestants, who hold that if a person wants to take the cookie and the Kool-aid (Protestant or likewise Novus Ordo), all he has to do is tell himself that it is subjectively okay for him, regardless of his objective state of public sin and scandal. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Evangelisch Deutsche.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio is drowning in the heresy, formally condemned by Pope St. Pius X, called Modernism, which rejects objective truth and falsity, objective good and evil, and objective beauty and ugliness. Modernism is a particularly pervasive heresy, which the Pope-saint described as omnium haereseon collectum, the aggregation of all heresies. It is the hallmark of the heretical Newchurch of the New Order and its Newpopes. It is the pernicious theology that holds an apple is an orange -- if you personally think so, regardless of objective reality. This theology is the basis of heretical Protestantism and is the antithesis of the Catholic theology of Realism, most ably articulated for all time by the Church's Universal Theologian, St. Thomas Aquinas, and the Catholic popes.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
My Novus Ordo family asked me: "Are you doing the 40 Days for Life? I replied that we traditional Catholics have 365 days of Traditional Latin Masses, with the real Body and Blood of Christ. We have the real Rosary. We don't have to pick out 40 days. The New Order, sorry to say, has invalid sacraments. Novus Ordo clergy are no longer ordained; they are now just like Protestant ministers. They are not Pro-life, because they bring no life to their "eucharistic dinner table."
New Order money supports abortion and contraception in grants and programs. The New Order promotes condemned "oecumenism" ("all religions are equal," "we all worship the same god") with Protestants who claim to be against abortion, yet use prophylactics and sterilization. No, I told my Novus Ordo family, I prefer to have real Masses and Rosaries without joining a group that gives the Newchurch dioceses a false recognition as if they were Pro-life, whereas in fact they are Pro-death to Christ. Am I correct in saying these things?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Yes, you are. "Pro Life" in Newchurch has turned, as we have previously reported in these Daily Commentaries, into anti-capital punishment and Pro-Lesbian/Gay/Bisexual/Transsexual/Transgendered/Queer (did we miss any?). Pro-life in Newchurch is a political activity, not a spiritual one. Life without the true Mass, the true Sacraments, true doctrine, and true morality will inevitably be degraded. First things first!
Turnabout is fair play. Ask your Novus Ordo family whether they are going to fast every day but Sunday for the 40 days of Lent -- or did they just toss out those 40 days for Christ and their own souls?
The citizens of Rome are finally waking up to what the TRADITIO Network has said from the beginning of the Francis-Bergoglio regime: Bergoglio is no man of "mercy," but the latest purveyor of a cruel tyranny upon a sect that has not been Catholic for fifty years. Overnight on February 4, 2017, hundreds of posters were pasted up all over Rome denouncing Francis-Bergoglio as "merciless" for violating international law in "decapitating" the sovereign order of the Knights of Malta.
On the previous day Francis-Bergoglio had reinstated the corrupt head of the order, whom the Knights had expelled on December 3, 2016, for funding programs handing out prophylactics to prostitutes, in contravention of Knights policy and Catholic moral teaching. Bergoglio had constituted an investigating committee composed of Newprelates having a financial interest in the result, being affiliated with the corrupt Vatican Bank, which has itself been investigated for being infested with Mafiosi. Roman authorities tried to cover up the posters with "Affissione Abusiva" [Illegal Posting], but to no avail; passers-by simply ripped down the cover-ups.
Previously, Francis-Bergoglio has relied on his New Order propaganda machine to portray himself falsely as "merciful" and had even fabricated a whole "Year of Mercy" to lend false credibility to the lie. But now the end of Bergoglio may be in sight. The clueless people, whom he has been deceiving, are finally beginning to see the hypocrisy of the Newpope and are publicly turning against him as the man who promised "collegial" and "synodal" governance, but who has in reality delivered the autocracy of a tyrant.
The posters show Bergoglio with the tyrannical expression of a Mussolini and the charges against him in a Roman street dialect:
A France', hai commissariato Congregazioni, rimosso sacerdoti, decapiato l'Ordine di Malta e i Francescani dell' Immacolata, ignorato Cardinali... ma n'do sta la tua misericordia?
Hey, Frank, you have taken over Congregations, suspended priests, decapitated the Order of Malta and the Franciscans of The Immaculate, ignored Cardinals... Where the heck is your mercy?
Francis-Bergoglio also fired Newcardinal Ray Burke, who is admittedly a tyrannical character in his own right, but one who had publicly called out Bergoglio for implied heresy in his March 19, 2016, document Amoris laetitia (The Joy of Sex) on divorce-remarriage bigamy. Francis-Bergoglio's Newvatican propaganda machine was caught off guard by the public outcry against the tyrannical and now criminal Newpope, but a Newjesuit close to Bergoglio admitted that Bergoglio "was irritating many people." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
True Catholics, it seems that after four years, many even in Newchurch are getting tired of Francis-Bergoglio's anti-Catholic "mercy over morals" notion. It is likely that with Bergolio's allowing Mafiosi to continue to run Newvatican's bank, what is behind his tyranny is money. The Knights of Malta runs a multibillion dollar humanitarian organization around the world with over 100,000 personnel. Bergoglio's Bank agents want to tap into this source of revenue as Newvatican is bleeding red ink after a failed "Year of Mercy" and continuing paedophile crimes, which have slowed new donations to a trickle. Sic semper tyrannis!
Newcardinal Ray Burke, it has been announced, is being fired by Francis-Bergoglio. Burke is one of the four Newcardinals who publicly implied that Francis-Bergoglio's teaching on divorce-remarriage bigamy in his March 19, 2016, document Amoris laetitia (The Joy of Sex) is heretical. Bergoglio had already demoted Burke from being chief justice of Newvatican's supreme court to becoming chaplain to the Knights of Malta. Now Bergoglio is firing Burke even from that latter role.
The announcement was made on February 3, 2017, by the newly-restored Grand Chancellor the Knights of Malta, whic Francis-Bergoglio, contrary to international law, took over even though the Knights are a sovereign international entity equivalent to a state. Albrecht von Boeselager, whom the Knights had fired for cause because he was distributing prophylactics to prostitutes in third-world countries, was forcibly restored by Bergoglio, who had no authority to do so. In recompense for getting his job back, Boeselager played the sycophant to Bergoglio instead of bringing the Newpope up on criminal charges before the World Court of Justice.
When asked by the international press what role Newcardinal Burke had in the affair, Boeselager clammed up. He did reveal, however, that Bergoglio is firing Burke from his chaplaincy, which leaves Burke without portfolio. When Boeselager was asked what would happen to Burke, he said that Burke would be taken care of by Bergoglio. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio has now earned the title of the "Vindictive" Newpope. Yet, in the end, Burke was on the receiving end of poetic justice. When Burke was in power as Newbishop of La Crosse, Wisconsin, where he "consecrated" a transsexual "nun" in the scandal known as the "Immaculate Deception," and then as Newarchbishop of St. Louis, Missouri, where he scandalously persecuted a traditional-leaning church, he played the tyrant himself as "Bully" Burke. Then, when he was flown off to Newrome by Benedict-Ratzinger, the leopard changed his spots and started to play the phony "traditionalist."
Previously, Burke was more than happy to don the Novus Ordo getup and do the "Ordinary Mess" of Newchurch, that is the invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New Mess" of 1969. Now the tyrannical Bergoglio has turned the tables on him. Truly did Our Lord condemn the leaders of the church in his time -- it is no different now with the Newchurch of the New Order: "Domus mea domus orationis est, vos autem fecistis illam speluncam latronum [My house shall be a house of prayer; but you have made it a den of thieves] (Luke 19:46/DRV).
There is much buzz and excitement among the Neocon Newchurchers about an interview just given by Newcardinal Gerhard Muller, Prefect for the Congregation of the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith. As we all know, Muller, terrified of being removed by Francis-Bergoglio, has been expressing his discontent with the Newpope's heresies on Matrimony, Penance, and the Holy Eucharist (which objectively Newchurch has lost) by avoiding making any binding doctrinal statements and fleeing.
Instead, Muller conducts "interviews" with he media. Statements made to the press have no binding force on anyone, and Muller knows it. That is why he relies on interviews and books published by him as a private person. Bergoglio uses the same ploy. He usually won't issue official statements, but uses "interviews" with the press to put forth his heretical agenda.
In his interview on February 1, 2017, with the Italian journal Il Timone, Muller never even mentions the initiative of the four Newcardinal (Burke & Co. He carefully distances himself from them to protect his own posterior). Muller never even mentions that dangerous word, dubia, referring to the five questions on which a definitive doctrinal statement has been demanded of Francis-Bergoglio. Muller's method is that of all the false Newchurch prelates: find a mule in the press to put out his statement in the form of an "interview." The questions for the "interview" are agreed to in advance, and none of them challenge the interviewee's hypocrisy.
Meanwhile, it is nearly Septuagesima, and no additional Newcardinals are flocking to the side of Burke & Co. The four are all retired and therefore have little to lose. Francis-Bergoglio has now relegated Burke to the chaplaincy to the vitiated Knights of Malta, so Burke no longer has anything of value left to lose either.
The conservative Italian Newcardinals have decided to take the cautious route: wait out Bergoglio and then reverse him under his successor. It won't work. Francis-Bergoglio has been replacing Newchurch bishops at breakneck speed -- at least four times faster than did Benedict-Ratzinger, according to my scupulously-kept records. And Bergoglio will soon finish his work of stacking the deck in the College of Newcardinals. Time is running out to replace a wild leftist, heretical Newpope with a Neocon heretic Newpope.
Meanwhile, Muller will dangle the "exciting" sellout, always imminent, but never happening, of Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX to distract Neocon Newchurchers and pseudo-traditionalists from the fact that he himself has already sold out and betrayed Jesus Christ, to whom he swore to be loyal to death. Muller has a strict duty to correct heresy, but he has turned traitor, like all Newprelate perjurers in the Newchurch of the New Order, to whom sacred oaths mean nothing.
This story indicates why traditional Catholics need to think very hard before giving any money to organized secular "charities." No traditional Catholic can morally give money to anything connected to the heretical Newchurch of the New Ordo, of course. That would be gravely disordered. But most secular causes are just as suspect, especially those that are well known. The March of Dimes, for example, supports abortions. Most of these organizations spend over 80 or 90 per cent of donations received on bureaucracy.
A case in point. The Boy Scouts of America will now admit girls who claim to be boys ("transgendered") into its boys-only programs, according to an announcement on January 30, 2017. The "Boy" Scouts will use a false sex if the child or parent lies on the application to become a scout. The Boy Scouts previously had a policy that relied on the sex listed on a child's birth certificate for those programs. The false-sex decision goes into effect immediately.
Parents of real Boy Scouts are up in arms. In in Secaucus, New Jersey, an 8-year-old child had been asked to leave his Scout troop after parents and leaders found out he was in fact a girl. But the "Boy" Scouts knuckled under to political correctness, as they have already done for "gay" children and for "gay" adults, who since July 2015 can be Scout leaders or employees. So much for being "morally straight" in the Boy Scout oath! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
True Catholics, to what organizations should you give your donations? The answer is easy: to the local church, chapel, or oratory that provides you with the fully Traditional Latin Mass and Sacraments. That is your highest obligation. Let others contribute to organized secular groups. By giving to your local fully Traditional Latin Mass site, you can see how your money is being spent. When you give to large organized "charities," your money is eaten up for immoral purposes at worst and for bureaucracy at best. If you want to give personal charity, hand the money directly to the needy person, not some intermediary organization, and give him a holy card to go along with the money!
For the most part, the Newchurch bishops have gotten away with murder, rape, sodomy, and other grave crimes with impunity. One wonders why more fathers of sodomized children haven't beaten such phony Newbishops to a pulp or more traditional Catholics taken out their rage upon them. One did punch out Ultra-Modernist Newcardinal Roger Mahony, of Los Angeles. Another did so to a paedophile presbyter in San Jose, California. And there have been a few other cases.
Now in Newark, New Jersey, on January 28, 2017, a Black man, with no previous police record, got up from his pew, walked up to the Novus Ordo dinner table (of course, there was no altar rail) and cold-cocked Newbishop Manuel Cruz while he was simulating an invalid Novus Ordo Mess at Sacred Heart Newcathedral in Newark, New Jersey.
A witness said: "It was a very hard punch, and I think if the police officer weren't there, he [Charles Miller] would've done more damage. And we're glad this guy didn't have a gun or a knife." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
True Catholics, as yet it has not been determined whether Charles Miller hated the fraud of the invalid Novus Ordo Mess, was defending the honor of a sodomized son, detested the corruption of Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, or had some other motivation for taking it out on the Newbishop. If more Newbishops had to bear the rage of defrauded Newchurchers, they might be far less apt to pander anti-Catholicism.
On January 30, 2017, the Ecclesia Dei Commission confirmed, for the umpteenth time, that a deal is near between Newrome and the Neo-SSPX. The Commission remarks that it is finishing work to retrofit the Society into a "personal prelature." I'll just bet it is -- as that will nail shut the coffin over the cadaver that the Neo-Society has become after the death of Archbishop Lefebvre and the hostile takeover by Bernie Fellay.
According to Newchurch's Canon 297, under a personal prelature, the Neo-SSPX would need permission from the local Newbishop every time it wants to erect a first or fresh apostolate into the territory of that Modernist bishop. No Newrome Commission will override a local bishop. Under the instruction Universae Ecclesiae of April 30, 2011, the "Ecclesia Dei" Commission could override the local Newbishop, but in six years this option has never been exercised! An option in the Novus Ordo can be used or not used depending on the whim of the Newpope. And what is the whim of this Francis-Bergoglio?
We need look no farther than Bergoglio's current hostile takeover of the Knights of Malta, recognized as a sovereign entity, tantamount to a country -- a takeover that has made Bergoglio an international criminal subject to the penalties of the World Court. But Newchurch and Bergoglio have done far more than that to suppress any hint of traditional Catholicism in the New Order sect:
Francis the Spider has injected Fellay the Fly, like a capital criminal, with Novus Ordo venom to dope him up and prepare him for the lethal injection. What could that lethal injection be? Let's see: if the Neo-SSPX remains independent for a year or two before Newchurch takes it over lock, stock, and barrel, Fellay faces a leadership challenge next year at the 2018 Chapter.
For Neo-SSPXers who still remain clueless as to what is going on, let me put it to you in a nutshell: even what little you now have will be taken away by the Marxist Modernist!
The TRADITIO Fathers Comment.
Fellay had already stated on January 29, 2017, to French TV Libertés that so eager was he to vest in Novus Ordo purple that he was lowering his standards yet again -- that he would be willing to sell out his Neo-SSPX to the New Order sect now "without waiting for the situation in the Church [sic] to become completely satisfactory." This includes Francis-Bergoglio's efforts to admit divorced/remarried bigamists to the invalid Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid, which Fellay is now willing to accept as valid, as the New Mess has been officially declared in 2007 to be the "Ordinary Rite" of the New Order sect.
True Catholics, as we TRADITIO Fathers have maintained all along, Fellay is no traditional Catholic, but just like the Modernist moles who took over the Vatican II Council to use it as an engine to destroy the Catholic Church. It wasn't long ago that Fellay "the Fibber" told his Neo-SSPXers and the world that he had no intercourse with Newvatican. The international press caught him in the lie, however, when it photographed him slinking out of a back door after one of the "non-existent" meetings.
Fellay has now taken over Archbishop Lefebvre's once traditional Society of St. Pius X to use it as an engine to destroy what little remains of Catholics in his Neo-SSPX sect. But the jig is not up yet. Providence intervened against the perfidious Fellay in 2009, when the Neo-SSPX's senior bishop, Richard Williamson and the other two bishops (Tissier de Mallerais and Galarreta), blew up the sellout deal that was in the works with the Second Paedophile Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger. It was as if the saintly Archbishop Lefebvre were watching down from Heaven above.
Although all the world knows that the Newchurch of the New Order is dying, no Newpope since Paul VI-Montini has ever admitted the fact. Instead, the Newpopes have stressed the "day of sunshine" that was supposed to be dawning after the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965). However, the first Newpope, Paul VI-Montini, who signed every document of that anti-Council (Pope John XXIII signed not a single one), in a flash of revelation, wrote just three years after the close of that Anti-council:
The Church finds herself in an hour of anxiety, a disturbed period of self-criticism, or what would even better be called self-destruction. It is an interior upheaval, acute and complicated, which nobody expected after the Council. It is almost as if the Church were attacking itself. We looked forward to a flowering, a serene expansion of conceptions which matured in the great sessions of the Council. But ... one must notice above all the sorrowful aspect. It is as if the Church were destroying herself (December 7, 1968, Address to the Lombard Seminary at Rome).
After the introduction of the invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Mess of 1969, Montini had yet another revelation, this one even worse, another four years later:
We have the impression that through some cracks in the wall the smoke of Satan [fumus Satanae] has entered the temple of God: it is doubt, uncertainty, questioning, dissatisfaction, confrontation.... We thought that after the Council a day of sunshine would have dawned for the history of the Church. What dawned, instead, was a day of clouds and storms, of darkness, of searching and uncertainties (June 29, 1972, Sermon during the Mass for Sts. Peter & Paul)
On January 28, 2017, Francis-Bergoglio, the Marxist Newpope who has done more than any of his predecessor Newpopes to destroy what little remains of Catholicism in the Newchurch of the New Order, officially admitted that Newchurch is suffering a "haemorrhage" of presbyters and Newreligious that is weakening Newchurch to death. Ever since the Vatican II Anti-council, Newchurch has seen its Newclergy and Newreligious in steep decline, whereas previously the Catholic Church had boasted a populous and dedicated cadre of priests, as well as religious teachers, nurses, and missionaries. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio dared to blame in his Newclergy and Newreligious worse "a la carte" choices, to which he is blind in his own behavior as Head Hypocrite, as New Caiphas. He chooses vulgar Italian for sacred Latin, even in his invalid Newpapal Messes. He choses his own erroneous personal predilections -- homosexuality, abortion, divorce-with-remarriage -- over the teaching of Jesus Christ, Whose vicar he purports to be. No wonder the Newchurch of the New Order is dying before our eyes, whereas traditional Catholics, who have courageously maintained their oases of the true Faith, the true Mass, and the true Sacraments against the dying Newchurch, have much to be thankful for.
