The revolution in Newchurch against its Newpope Francis-Bergoglio gained steam on March 23, 2017, as a Newvatican meeting focusing on the protection of children against presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals drew Newvatican's leaders to confront Bergoglio's failure -- or even lack of a serious attempt -- to stop sex crimes in his Newchurch of the New Order.
In a significant show of unity, officials from each and every Newvatican department, including at least half a dozen Newcardinal prefects of congregations, personally attended as a show of force at a Newrome meeting on safeguarding children against Newchurch clergy. Said one Newcardinal: "It's important for the [New]church to be here because ... if you look back on the history of probably the last 20 years, it's the greatest obstacle to preaching the Word of God and the credibility of doing what we?re supposed to do."
The complicity of the Three Paedophile Newpopes, the Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio in supporting the crimes of sodomy and rape against children by their Newclergy has led to mass abandonment of Newchurch by Newchurchers and a notable drop-off in donations to the corrupt Newchurch locally and to Newvatican. In fact, Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal led directly to the abdication of Ratzinger, who was outed by his own personal aide. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
True Catholics, this event fell just weeks after Child Protection Commission member Marie Collins, herself a victim of a sex crime by a presbyter, resigned from her position on the Commission, citing Francis-Bergoglio's impotence in doing anything to correct the problem. Bergoglio's own criminal record stands out starkly: in almost four years he still hasn't even appointed the full Commission and given it its statutes. Meanwhile his Newclergy continues to sodomize and rape children unabated, with virtual impunity.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Our daughter is a student at a community college. She was invited to become a member of Phi Theta Kappa, the honor society for community colleges that is the analogue of the renowned Phi Beta Kappa society for universities. I am concerned that Phi Theta Kappa has Athena's head on its logo and says that it is a symbol of learning. I know that Athena is technically a pagan Greek goddess, so I wondered whether this fact should prevent my daughter from joining the Phi Theta Kappa society.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
You are overly concerned about this matter. To the contrary, Greek and Roman classical culture is part of Western Christian culture, and its use should be applauded on those grounds. The classical goddess Athena represents wisdom, sophia, the original Greek word in the New Testament that stands particularly for the wisdom of God.
All the great Saints of the Church admired and made use of classical Roman and Greek culture, which was Providence's precursor to Christianity. After all, without classical Rome there would be no "Roman" Catholic Church! St. Augustine of Hippo, Great Father and Doctor of the Church, among so many other Saints, discusses in his Confessiones (Confessions) the positive impact of classical civilization upon him, particularly the works of the Roman epic poet Vergil. St. Jerome, Great Father and Doctor of the Church, discusses in his Epistulae (Letters) the positive impact upon him of the greatest Roman philospher, Cicero.
The distinguished Roman Catholic author of Florence, Dante Alighieri, who wrote Divina Comedia (The Divine Comedy), a work praised by several popes, also wrote a Latin prose tract, De Monarchia (On the Monarchy), in which he explains how classical Rome was Providence's instrument in spreading Christianity throughout the world.
Also, be sure to read the chapter in Official Traditional Catholic Directory entitled "Traditional Catholic Schooling" in the section "Higher Education," which gives sound guidance on what colleges to choose and what major subjects to take. The link will be found at the top of this page.
In his weekly bulletin issued on the Feast of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, March 25, 2017, "Resistance" traditional Catholic Bishop Richard Williamson paints an uncompromising and stark picture of Bernie Fellay's deception in turning Archbishop Lefebvre's original traditional Catholic organization into a handmaiden of the New Order. Williamson exposes the following truths about Fellay:
Williamson sums up the sad state of Fellay and his gutted Neo-SSPX:
It was all too predictable. Being neither infallible nor indefectible, the [Neo-]society is now going through what the Church went through fifty years ago -- infiltration, compromise, disintegration, and the same process of auto-demolition. Archbishop Lefebvre would have noticed the radical change immediately, but the [Neo-]SSPX will be accepted as part of the Newchurch, and conversely, it will have to accept the Newchurch.
It [Fellay's Neo-SSPX] will now be just one of many side-chapels in the Pantheon of the New World Order. And as for "reconciliation," which side has given in to the other? Has the Conciliar Church become Catholic? Far from it!
The Anti-Francis fervor is growing in Newchurch. On March 31, 2017, Newchurch canon lawyers, theologians, and scholars will meet at the University of Paris to discuss how to depose a heretic Newpope, in specific, Francis-Bergoglio. The conference will explore the mechanisms for deposing a Newpope who openly teaches false doctrine and heresy. This topic has never before been treated at a conference in recent memory.
A key speaker at the conference will be Professor Laurent Fonbaustier, who published a 1200 page book in 2016 entitled The Deposition of the Heretical Pope. Fifteen other speakers will tackle the topic. The University of Paris is the historical location where the eminent Doctors of the Church, the Dominican St. Thomas Aquinas and the Franciscan St. Bonaventure, held their great theological debates. There in the 1300s was debated the question of what could be done with the heretic Pope John XXII, who denied the doctrine that the souls of the just are admitted to the beatific vision immediately after death rather than after the General Judgment, a position that he retracted on his deathbed.
Among the conferees will be representatives of the 45 Newchurch theologians who in June 2016 went directly to the Dean of the College of Newcardinals requesting a repudiation of Newpope Francis-Bergoglio in his April 8, 2016, document Amoris laetitia (The Joy of Sex), which they determined contains teaching contrary to Catholic faith and morals.
Making the rounds at Newvatican is a work by the 18th-century Brazilian theologian Arnaldo Vidigal Xavier da Silveira titled The Theological Hypothesis of a Heretical Pope, which treats of the possibility of a heretic pope and how to deal with him. In canonical tradition a pope who commits heresy is cut off from the true Church and forfeits his office. This principle is contained in St. Robert Bellarmine's canonic maxim: Papa hereticus ipso facto depositus est, A heretic pope is by that very fact deposed. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]
True Catholics, the noose is tightening around the neck of the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio. As heretical as were the teachings of his predecessor Newpopes, Bergoglio has gone far beyond these to reject the most basic doctrinal, moral, and liturgical teachings of the Catholic Church.

Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio on March 23, 2017, decided to have the three "seers" of Fatima -- or at least two of them -- join his panoply of phony New Order unsaints like the Hindu syncretist Theresa of Calcutta and the paedophiliac Newpope JPII-Wojtyla. "Seers" Francisco and Jacinta Marto may be Novus Ordo con-anized in May 2017, with Lucia Santos the third "seer" on a fast track not far behind. There is so much controversy about Fatima and about the so-called "secrets" of Fatima -- with Newchurch circulating different "edited" versions of the text under difffernt Newpopes -- that the proposed con-anizations are rightly being ridiculed.
Newchurch is so desperate for poster-boy/girl saints that its Newpopes have con-anizaed the likes of Theresa of Calcutta, a Novus Ordo "nun" who mixed pagan Hinduisism with Novus Ordoism in India, and of JPII-Wojtyla, who became notorious for his support of paedohiliac Newprelates like Newcardinal Bernard Law, of Boston, Massachusetts. In fact, Newhurch and its Newpopes are simply perpetrating a sacrilegious and blasphemous scam on their clueless Newchurchers.
True Catholics, Newchurch and its Newpopes have been perpetrating these cons upon their clueless Newchurchers since at least 1984, when the previous traditional and rigorous process of canonization was gutted, so that, as JPII-Wojtyla openly proposed, the Arch-heretic Martin Luther could be con-anized as a Newchurch Unsaint! For further information on this scam about New Order con-anizations, 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 "'Con-anizations' - New Order."
Just in time for Holy Week 2017, the newly-restored tomb in which Jesus's body is believed to have been entombed after his crucifixion was unveiled to the public at a ceremony at the Church of the Holy Sepulcher in the heart of the Christian quarter of Jerusalem's Old City on March 22, 2017. A team of some 50 scientists and restorers from the National Technical University of Athens completed the nine-month renovation project, which focused on a small structure above the burial chamber, known as the Aedicule. It is the most sacred monument in Christianity.
In October 2016 a marble slab covering the rock-carved tomb was lifted for the first time in more than two centuries, allowing restoration workers to examine the original rock shelf or "burial bed" on which Jesus's body is believed to have rested. A small window has been cut into the marble slabs to allow pilgrims a glimpse of the rock. The team also repaired and stabilized the shrine with titanium bolts and mortar, and cleaned thick layers of candle soot and pigeon droppings. The work involved the use of radar, laser scanners, and drones. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Guardian.
Important as the historical site is, what is more important spiritually is that all traditional Catholics can find Jesus's tomb at the own traditional church, chapel, or oratory during the sacred rites of Holy Week, the most sacred rites of the year. These sacred rites were horribly corrupted in the ramp up to the Novus Ordo, which started in 1950. Thus, you will not find the traditional rites of Holy Week in phony indult/extraordinary Latin Mass" Newchurches. Nor will you find then at churches and chapels of Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX, as the Neo-SSPX also uses the 1956/1962 rites, which were corrupted by the Freemason presbyter, the chief architect of the New Order, Hannibal Bugnini.
Traditional Catholics for their own spiritual good need to plan now, even if it means some travel, to attend all of these most sacred and indescribably-beautiful rites of Holy Week at the heart of our traditional Catholic Faith, only where they are offered by a fully traditional Catholic priest independent of Newchurch or the Neo-SSPX.

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
The Devil is always more ambitious and clever than we can imagine. One way in which Francis-Bergoglio will decimate Newchurch is by destroying the concept of the Mass as the center of prayer. I do not refer here to the status of the "New Mass" as being an invalid Non-Mass. Newchurchers at least falsely believe it to be a valid Mass -- if they think about it at all. That false belief does keep some older Newchurchers and Neocons attached to what they fancy to be the Catholic Faith.
The way to smash this fancy of pseudo-Catholicism is to introduce a Protestant "communion service," which Newchurch will declare fulfils the "Mass obligation." This "service" will not include an Offertory or Canon in any form, valid or otherwise. It will perhaps increase the number of lections and include a preparation for "spiritual communion." There would, of course, be distribution of the cookie and Kool-Aid near the end from hosts pre-"consecrated" offsite, who knows where?
Some of the old forms will be maintained to dupe the clueless Newchurchers, probably in a corrupted form, such as the Kyrie, Gloria, Sanctus, Credo, Agnus Dei, some of which the Protestant heretics retain as well. Naturally, a Newchurch ministress will be available to "preside" over this heathen sing-along. This will be the next revolution in the Novus Disordo Mess.
Newchurch will make it possible in its "canon law" to fulfil the "obligation" by attending a communion service in lieu of a Mess, including any "oecumenical communion service" with Protestants. Francis-Bergoglio's admitted mentor, the Arch-heretic Luther knew it best: Tolle Missam, Tolle Ecclesiam: Smash the Mass, and you smash the Church. In this case, the Mass is already smashed, but the concept of the Mass lingers on among the clueless Neocons and pseudo-traditionalists. That concept can now be altogether ended. Francis-Bergoglio's purpose here is to deracinate Christian culture altogether.
The Neo-SSPX's Superior-Dictator Bernie Fellay will soon join this false sect of pagans. The precedent of Newchurch taking over other pseudo-traditionalist organizations shows that it will tolerate Bernie for a while in order to secure control of all the property acquired over the decades by the followers of the good Archbishop Lefebvre. Once the spider brings the Bernie fly into his parlor and once Bernie's little Neo-SSPX flies become comfortable there, anaesthetised by the spider's venom, Bernie will be replaced in heartbeat by a Bergoglian Newprelate.
Just as the Modernist poison was injected after the Vatican II Anti-council, these changes will come in stages, and doctrinal rulings from Newvatican will bind the Fellayites. Then the Bergoglian Newprelate will conduct a Franciscans-of-the-Immaculate-style purge. All those lovely SSPX chapels and priories and schools and churches and oratories and retreat houses will then become the property of Newchurch directly. If Newchurch's past is prelude, most Neo-SSPX properties will be sold off to make way for urban parking lots. Others will be transformed into oecumentical worship centers. Some will have homoerotic murals on their walls, like the cathedral of Italian Newarchbishop Paglia. Anything is appropriate -- except for fully-traditional Catholicism.
Fellay's sellout to the New Order is almost in the bag now. Francis-Bergoglio has already replaced one-quarter of all the Newbishops in only three short years (not counting the Modernist-Leftist bishops who were already put in place by his Newpope predecessors to "keep the peace"), and he is about to stack the decks in the College of Newcardinals. Well before 2025, pink-felt banners with crooked lettering on them will adorn Fellay's chapels. Altar rails will disappear, and Protestant-style dinner tables will replace baroque altars. In a twist of fate, Fellay's followers will become what they supposedly hate: heretics.
In these TRADITIO Commentaries we previously reported that Francis-Bergoglio had, with little publicity, established a commission to "revise" the (invalid) Novus Ordo service yet again. Now our sources in Rome tell us that this is only the tip of the iceberg. In fact, Bergoglio has convened a commission of Protestants, once again to "revise" the "New Mess," "New Sacraments," and even to do away with Newparishes. The Marxist Newpope's goal is nothing less than to communize the entire Newchurch.
We TRADITIO Fathers cannot help but be reminded of the Commission of Six Protestants, established by Newpope Paul VI-Montini after the Vatican II Anti-council to destroy the Traditional Latin Mass, Divine Office, and Sacraments. Montini appointed to head that Commission the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, the Chief Architect of the New Order. In 1965 and thereafter, Bugnini and Montini succeeded in substituting for the valid Traditional Latin Mass and Sacraments invalid Protestantized versions, which are used throughout Newchurch to this day. This fact is admitted and documented in Bugnini's own 976-page book, La riforma liturgica (1948-1975), published by the Liturgical Press in Rome in 1980.
In addition to further Protestantizing -- we should really say "secularizing" -- the Mess and Sakruments, Francis-Bergoglio has directed his secret commission to work on the total deformation of the concept of a "parish." The Marxist Bergoglio wants to turn his Newparishes into "oecumenical communities," in which Newchurchers, heretics, and pagans would all worship "god" together in an "oecumenical service," which will have even less similarity to the Catholic Mass than does the Novus Ordo service in use today in Newchurch temples around the world. The Council of Trent's dogmatic teachings on the Catholic Mass, the Sacraments, and the Church will be abrogated and replaced by an openly "oecumenical" secular religion, with its own "service" and "communities."
Francis-Bergoglio's plan is described as having these "communities" led by teams of "shepherds," who will be chosen from (unordained) Newchurch and Protestant ministers and ministresses, mixed in with lay ministers and ministresses. Newchurch has already begun the process by its injection of "eucharistic ministers/ministresses" "lay deacons," and soon "lay deaconesses." Test runs are already underway in The Netherlands, where Newchurch is running several new "communities" replacing Newparishes, with "oecumenical staff." It is utterly revealing that this method is exactly how the New Mess was introduced after the Vatican II Anti-council, and in the same place: Holland and Germany.
Bergoglio's plan includes the complete elimination of the (invalid) Novus Ordo "rite of reconciliation," which already replaced the Sacrament of Penance in 1973 throughout Newchurch. In future, there will be "common penitential liturgies," run by oecumenical ministers, who will administer the "pardon of the community." As with the invalid New Mess in 1965-1969, the deformation will not be introduced simultaneously in all places, but will be introduced gradually, so that the clueless Newchurchers will be blindsided once again. The changes will be introduced first in Francis-Bergoglio's South America and in Africa. From these continents the deformation will be introduced into the rest of the world.
True Catholics, Marxist Bergoglio will thus not need a Vatican III. The complete deformation of Newchurch to a form worse than heretical Protestantism will all be done by fiat. In the last fifty years since the Vatican II Anti-council, the Newchurchers have been made ignorant of the Catholic Faith to the point that they cannot recognize a true Catholic Mass, Sacraments, doctrine, or morality. Now the Bergoglio the Spider is trying to corrupt what little remains of Catholicism in Fellay the Fly's Neo-SSPX sect. Soon, tue Catholicism will be maintained, as St. Benedict did after the fall of Rome, only in independent traditional Catholic communities around the world, which are, by the grace of God, actually increasing in the face of Bergoglio's Marxism and Bernie Fellay's perfidy.
Oops! Francis-Bergoglio on March 17, 2017, urged the use of exorcists in cases of "genuine spiritual disturbances." The Newpope apparently forgot that Newchurch has not ordained exorcists since 1972. On August 15, 1972, Newchurch abolished for its presbyters (Protestantized ministers) the traditional four Minor Orders of Porter, Lector, Exorcist, and Acolyte, and the Major Order of Subdeacon, which are to this day conferred upon independent traditional Catholic priests outside Newchurch. Thus, Newchurch presbyters are not ordained as exorcists and have no power of exorcism.
Bergoglio, who is mired in the heretical Vatican II doctrine of "Oecumenism" (all religions are equal, we all worship the same god), has turned to "possession" as a convenient excuse to explain violent acts by those in anti-Christian religions. For example, Bergoglio has described Mohammendan terrorists who stabbed a Newchurch presbyter at his "eucharistic table" as "satanic." Bergoglio has also described the acts of his presbyters who perpetrate paedophile crimes as possessed. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Agence France-Presse.]
Good Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio is off in anti-Catholic left field again. In reality, as St. Thomas Aquinas, the Catholic Church's Universal Theologian quite reasonably teaches, one can find perfectly natural causes for practically all evil acts. In the case of Mohammedan terrorists, for example, the longstanding hatred of the Christian religion. In the case of Newchurch paedophile presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals, criminal behavior. Even if exorcism could do any good in Newchurch, Bergoglio has no exorcists to call upon in Newchurch. He and his post Vatican II predecessors have shot themselves in the foot, or rather the brain.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
There is a Novus Ordo presbyter in my town. I realize that he will not use the same absolution form as a traditional Catholic priest, so what are the minimum words that he has to say to give a valid absolution?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
A Novus Ordo presbyter is not a Catholic priest. Newchurch stopped ordaining priests in 1968, when it adopted a Protestantized New Ordinal, after which time it only "installed presbyters," who are like Protestant ministers, who have no sacramental power. Moreover, even if Newchurch still had priests, it no longer has the valid Sacrament of Penance. On September 2, 1973, that Sacrament was abolished by the document and replaced with an invalid, non-sacramental "rite of reconciliation."
Thus, it is not possible to receive Penance or other valid Sacraments (except incidentally in some cases baptism and matrimony) from a Newchurch presbyter -- ever. Information on this topic will be found in the Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics) department, available from the main menu of the TRADITIO Network's home page, www.traditio.com, in FAQ03 in the section "Five Practical Rules for Dealing with the Novus Ordo Sect."
You've heard of Liberalist fake news. Now that has metastasized into fake history. On St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 2017, Newarchbishop Eamon Martin, Primate of All Ireland, issued his St. Patrick's Day message, in which he, in a Liberalist frenzy that views the Newchurch as a political organization, called St. Patrick a "refugee" and an "undocumented migrant." This radical Liberalist disease that affects the Newchurch of the New Order from its Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio on down makes its victims ignorant of history, and, as Cicero rightly observed, "To be ignorant of what occurred before you were born is to remain always a child." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
Here is the real story. Patricius was no "undocumented migrant." He lived in Roman Britain, the documented Roman son of a Roman tax-collector and a British mother. Roman expansion into Britain had brought the benefits of Roman law and order, advanced culture, an infrastructure of highways and aqueducts, and eventually Christianity. Ireland (Roman Hibernia), on the other hand, remained a harsh, difficult place where warring kings ruled violent little kingdoms throughout the land, and pagan priests performed human sacrifices.
In the fifth century, when Roman civilization began to fall, the barbarian Irish would raid Britain. It was in one of these raids that Patrick became one of the thousands abducted to Ireland as slaves. Patrick was purchased by a Druid, a member of a pagan Celtic cult. In that condition Patrick remained for six years, until he escaped and hiked to a port, where he boarded a Roman ship.
So, Patricius was no "refugee" or "undocumented migrant." He was a Christian who was abducted against his will and made a slave to a pagan Irish Druid. The Newchurch Primate of Ireland needs to go back to school and learn his Roman history!
St. Patrick's Catholic Church was built in 1806 to provide the true Mass and Sacraments to Irish immigrants who established Armstrong County, Pennsylvania, in the United States, many of whom are now buried in the church's cemetery, along with the church's valid priests at the time, also emigres from Ireland.
Even today this church is off the beaten path; one of the roads leading to the church is mostly dirt. One can only imagine what this area looked like in 1806, when it was mostly wilderness, sparsely populated, and had much harsher winter weather. Yet we know that in those days people braved the elements on foot, horse, and wagon to receive the true Sacraments and assist at the true Mass.
On this St. Patrick's Day, March 17, 2017, this site is a reminder of those Catholic forefathers who did anything possible to give early American Catholic settlers the true Mass and Sacraments, and of those brave Catholic priests who left the comforts and beautiful cathedrals of Europe to settle in the backwoods and frontiers of America to serve true Catholics.
True Catholics should be reminded of our brave independent traditional Catholic priests today who have set up Traditional Latin Mass sites in similar locations, to bring to the faithful the true Sacraments and the fully Traditional Latin Mass outside the auspices of the "institutional" Newchurch of the New Order, which is not Catholic. These traditional Catholic priests today fight against their own hostile environment: the corrupt Newchurch, with which they cannot have any association and remain Catholic.
Without our brave independent traditional Catholic priests today, the true Church would be dead. We traditional Catholics often take our priests for granted, yet, in justice, we should be getting down on our knees every single day to thank God for them.
Even the local Newbishop of Medjugorje declared on February 26, 2017, of the notorious "apparitions" in that Bosnian city: "The Madonna has not appeared in Medjugorje." He declared the alleged Marian apparitions at the site to be phony. The alleged apparitions originally began June 24, 1981, when six children in Medjugorje, a town in what is now Bosnia and Herzegovina, claimed to have begun to experience phenomena that they claimed to be apparitions of the Blessed Virgin Mary. These "apparitions" are said to have continued almost daily since their first occurrence, with three of the original six children, who are now young adults, continuing to receive apparitions every afternoon because not all of the "secrets" intended for them have been revealed.
According to these six "seers," the "apparitions" contain certain secrets surrounding events to be fulfilled in the future. The notion of such "secrets" contradicts the teaching of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Who said, "I have spoken openly to the world ... and in secret I have spoken nothing" (John 18:20/DRV). The notion that "apparitions" contain "secrets" that are needed by Catholics reeks of the early heresy of Gnosticism, which survives into our own times.
Newbishop Ratko Peric declared the supposed apparitions to be nothing but a manipulation of the "seers" and the Novus Ordo presbyters who work with them. He points to errors and inconsistencies among the "seers." In April 1991, the Newbishops of the former Yugoslavia determined that "on the basis of the research that has been done, it is not possible to state that there were apparitions or supernatural revelations." On the basis of those findings, Newchurch's Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith directed in October 2013 that Newchurch clergy and laity "are not permitted to participate in meetings, conferences, or public celebrations during which the credibility of such 'apparitions' would be taken for granted." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
True Catholics, false apparitions are just one of the ways that Newchurchers, not to say some traditionalists, are allowing their souls to be poisoned, drawing them away from Christ's Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, dogmatically the two foundations of the Catholic Faith and Public Revelation, into speculations about "secrets." Although Lourdes did not engage in such speculations, Fatima certainly did, leading many to fall away from the Catholic Faith into some kind of extremist "Fatimism," which heretically and blasphemously holds "Fatima" to be equal to Sacred Scripture, just as the Church's greatest mystic Saint, John of the Cross, warned: "Stay away from visions, apparitions, and miracles as much as you can. be careful of visions, even when they are authentic."

Francis-Bergoglio started out as the "Gay" Newpope with his statement that he is unable to judge homosexuality. He then admitted that his Newchurch was controlled by a "Gay Lobby." Now his appointees are "coming out" in the most disgusting ways. The latest case is that of Newarchbishop Vincenzo Paglia, who heads Bergoglio's Pontifical Academy for Life and Bergoglio's Pontifical Pope John Paul II Institute for Studies on Marriage and Family. Paglia has recently been outed for having commissioned a homosexual artist to paint a giant "homoerotic" painting for his Newcathedral church in Italy, in which Paglia himself is featured as a semi-nude sodomite embracing another semi-nude sodomite.
The massive mural covers the opposite side of the facade of the Newcathedral church of the Diocese of Terni-Narni-Amelia. It depicts Our Lord carrying nets to Heaven filled with naked and semi-nude homosexuals, transsexuals, prostitutes, and drug dealers, jumbled together in erotic interactions, into Heaven. Our Lord is blasphemed by being painted with the face of a local "gay" hairdresser and by being depicted as seminude through translucent garb.
The "gay" artist comes from Francis-Bergoglio's old stomping grounds, Argentina. Ricardo Cinalli is known for his homosexual paintings. Newarchbishop Paglia specifically chose him out of a list of ten artists, and Paglia oversaw every detail of the mural. The artist has overtly stated that the naked people depicted are meant to be "erotic," and he wanted to show them copulating. This is a far cry from Michelangelo's magnificent murals adorning the Sistine Chapel, which are not erotic, but follow revered classical models.
In early 2015, under the direction of Archbishop Paglia, Francis-Bergoglio's Pontifical Council for the Family hosted a series of lectures that raised the possibility of giving the invalid Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid to people living in public adultery and bigamy. In July 2016, still under the direction of Paglia, Francis-Bergoglio's Pontifical Council for the Family issued a Newchurch "sex-ed" program that includes lascivious and pornographic images. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]
True Catholics, the artist Cinelli, the Newarchbishop Paglia, and the Newpope Bergoglio are all implicated in anti-Catholic immorality, including fornication and sodomy, both of which are explicitly condemned in Sacred Scripture. That Bergoglio and his Newchurch continue to call themselves "Catholic" is utter blasphemy. It is only because of the sinful Neocons and pseudo-traditionalists, including Bernie Fellay and his Neo-SSPX, who pander to this immorality, that Newchurch continues to pull the wool over the eyes of the clueless slaves of the heretical New Order.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Newchurch elected Jorge Bergoglio as Newpope on March 13, 2013. I have noted in past comments that Bergoglio has, since that day, appointed bishops at a breakneck speed. He's faster at appointments than was the Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla and much faster than the slowpoke Benedict-Ratzinger, who was too busy supporting paedophiles among his Newclergy actually to govern Newchurch. Bergoglio is fast making it impossible for the Neocon Newchurchers and pseudo-traditionalists ever to make a comeback. As a result, Newchurch is now firmly headed for permanent status; in fact, it is already there. There are two ways by which Bergoglio has achieved this outcome.
First, as already mentioned, he's replacing Newbishops as fast as he can, often forcing Neocon Newbishops to retire before they turn 75. Since the date of his election, three full years have passed. In that time he has appointed 767 Newdiocesan bishops (including those who are equivalent in law to a Newbishop, such as vicars apostolic). This number represents about one-quarter of all the Newdiocesan bishops (24.65%).
To these, we must add the Leftist Newbishops named by his two predecessors. Being Neocons and not traditional Catholics, the last two Newpopes appointed a large minority of Leftist Newprelates to "strike a balance" and "keep the peace." They wanted both factions in Newchurch to have something to crow about. For example, one of the very first appointments of Ratzinger was of a Neo-Franciscan presbyter in Brazil, Severino Clasen, who had been known as a strong advocate of artificial contraception. Later on, Ratzinger even promoted him to metropolican Newrchbishop!
By now, it is statistically impossible to restore a Neocon newepiscopate in the false Protestant and pagan sect that is Newchurch. I note that Bergoglio had to take some time in his first year to gain control of the structure. So he didn't appoint as many Newbishops in Year One (120) as in Years Two and Three. At his current rate of appointments, should he survive three more years in office, he will have appointed well over half of all the Newbishops.
Bergogio has done more, however. Secondly, he has appointed a very large number of auxiliary Newbishops -- 244 -- in all in these past three years. Some of these men have already been promoted as Newdiocesan bishops. The really strange thing is the break in custom on this. In the past, auxiliaries were appointed as "helping bishops" in very large or populous sees, especially in metropolitan archdioceses. But Bergoglio has been appointing them even in minor Newdioceses in Africa, in places such as Guinea and Sierra Leone. These are, in effect, successors: he's trying to rule the Newchurch into the future, after he's no longer Newpope, by death or abdication. Poorer Newdioceses cannot afford to support such auxiliaries, so there is pressure to promote them in the future.
Bergoglio has only one more job to do to seal this deal. He needs to stack the decks in the College of Newcardinals. He has already held two consistories, but there is still a strong Neocon and compromiser group there. However, he could surprise everyone and overfill the College. The Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla made the mistake of setting a bad precedent for this, overfilling the College twice. What a Neocon can do, a Leftist can do twice as much. After all, a conservative is only a Liberalist in slow motion.
Even if Bergoglio doesn't overfill the College, he can gain a majority there in the next consistory, or the one after that. He is going slowly on this path to avoid a schism, but he wants to make the entire lot of them Radical Leftists. With Fellay and his Neo-SSPX about to join up too, real, traditional Catholicism will be confined to small groups and individuals who operate independently of the "institutional" church.
In fact, Newchurch is already going to Hell. Those Neocon Newchurchers who are still dependent on it need to find ways right now to separate themselves from it before it pulls them down to Hell -- for eternity.
On March 13, 2017, St. Peter's Basilica, which was once Catholic, was turned over for the first time in history to the simulation of a Protestant service. The once-Catholic high altar was used for Anglican "Evensong," which is a phony knockoff from the Catholic Hour of Compline of the Divine Office. This sacrilege was equivalent to that of October 27, 1986, when the Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla participated in an oecumenical prayer meeting at Assisi, Italy, during which an image of pagan Buddha was placed on top of the Novus Ordo tabernacle.
At the high altar of St. Peter's, not Francis-Bergoglio, but heretic Anglican archbishop David Moxon "presided" at the 15:00 service. The sacrilege came just five months after Bergoglio and heretic Anglican archbishop Justin Welby simulated Vespers together at the Basilica of San Gregorio al Celio in Rome. In February 2017 Bergoglio became the first Newpope ever to set foot inside a heretic Anglican church in Rome, where he participated in Anglican Evensong. Neither Bergoglio nor the Anglicans share the Catholic belief about the Mass, the priesthood, the Holy Eucharist -- none of which either of them have in their respective Novus Ordo and Anglican heretical sects.
True Catholics, it cannot be denied that Francis-Bergoglio is just as much a heretic as are the Anglicans. In fact, Anglo-Catholics have a claim to be being part of the Catholic and Apostolic Church, though schismatic, whereas Bergoglio's New Order sect does not have such a claim. Now that heretical Protestant services are being simulated at the High Altar of St. Peter's Archbasilica, it cannot be denied that Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order is officially Protestant -- and much worse!
One of the fantasies of the Neocon Newchurchers and pseudo-traditionalists is that some future pope will overturn the post-Vatican II Newpopes and make Newchurch Catholic again. Francis-Bergoglio has now blown that possibility, if it ever did exist, out the window. According to Newcardinal Donald Wuerl, of Washington, D.C., Francis-Bergoglio is changing the papacy and "completely refocusing the role of bishop" in an interview published on March 8, 2017, with the liberalist Newjesuit magazine America.
Wuerl stated that whereas many in Newchurch are beginning to pull back from the great failings of the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), Bergoglio has picked up from ?where we left off? on Vatican II themes of collegiality and synodality, whose purpose was to remove power from any pope and to turn the Newchurch pope into an heretical Anglican archbishop primus inter pares. Wuerl stated that after Bergoglio was finished with the Newpapacy, "It will never look like it did 25 or more years ago." Twenty-five years ago marked the death of Archbishop Lefebvre, founder of the originally-traditional Society of St. Pius X, whose successor, Bernie Fellay, wishes to make a handmaiden of the Newchurch of the New Order.
Newcardinal Wuerl, who is known for handing out the invalid Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid to the divorced and "remarried" late U.S. Senator Ted Kennedy and to former U.S. Vice President Joe Biden, who officiated at a "gay" marriage. Wuerl, once censured by Newvatican for his ignorance of canon law, chortled:
So, when I look back over these four years, I see that Francis[-Bergoglio] has accomplished all this refocusing, even though we have a long, long way to go to begin to change the direction of an institution as big as the Catholic [sic] Church and to get it focused back again on the path that I believe the council set out on. I think what he has done is already a huge accomplishment. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]
True Catholics, there is no hope for Newchurch. It jettisoned itself from the Catholic Church in 1964 after the fashion of the Arch-heretic Martin Luther and become then the New Protestant Church. Catholics must treat it as an arm of the Protestant Church and have nothing to do with its phony "New Mess," its phony Newclergy, its anti-Catholic doctrine, and its pig-sty morality. As the Apostle to the Gentiles, St. Paul, taught, Catholics simply must to continue to practice the true Catholic Faith and wait for its restoration as the "institutional" Church once again -- unless the Last Judgment intervenes before that time.
Bishop Richard Williamson has announced his third selection for episcopal consecration for the loose association of traditional Catholic clergy known as the "Resistance." Previously, Williamson had consecrated Jean-Michel Faure (March 15, 2015) and Dom Tomas Aquin (March 19, 2016), known as staunch traditional priests. Now, in a somewhat controversial choice, Williamson proposes to consecrate Fr. Gerardo Zendajas on Thursday, May 11, 2017. Williamson and Faure reside in Europe, Tomas Aquin resides in South America, and Zendejas resides in the United States.
Williamson proposes to consecrate this priest on May 11, 2017, at St. Athanasius Church in Vienna, Virginia, the church of one of the founding members of a group of clergy known as the Vienna Five, who broke away from Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX and founded on August 10, 2012, a new group. That date is odd, in view of the fact that the other two bishops were consecrated on St. Joseph's feastday. May 11, 2017, is merely a ferial day in the Paschal season. The selection of this date violates the provisions of the traditional Pontificale Romanum, which requires ordinarily a Sunday, an Apostle's feastday, or at least a feastday as the day of consecrating a bishop.
What do we know about Fr. Zendejas? First, he seems unusually young. Bishops Faure and Tomas Aquin are both bishops of mature years. Zendejas appears to be barely in midlife. One presumes that he meets the minimum traditional canonical requirements of having been a priest for at least five years and of being at least thirty years of age. Zendejas was ordained in 1988 in the SSPX. He left Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX not even three years ago, this last September 15, 2014. Zendejas has recently been celebrating Mass in the United States from Boston to Washington, D.C.
On April 21, 2016, an Open Letter for Fr. Gerardo Zendjas from Traditional "Resistance" Catholics was published, indicating concerns about the degree of Zendejas's commitment to uncompromising traditional Catholicism, for which Faure and Tomas Aquin had been known. The letter characterizes some of Zendajas's writings as "liberalist" and "incoherent," and criticizes him for his wishy-washy "stance on the problems in the [Neo-]SSPX and regarding the principal errors of our time." The letter goes on: "Perhaps you think you are being clear and uncompromisingly traditional. You are not." Zendejas never answered the Open Letter. A conclusion could be drawn from this incident that Zendejas has a problem communicating clearly and traditionally, just as Bishop Williamson himself has been accused of recently.
In another highly-questionable incident, Fr. Zendejas led a public novena to a man "beatified" in an Novus Ordo ceremony by the heretical Unsaint Newpope JPII-Wojtyla in 1988, just three months after Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre once and for all broke with what he called "Modernist Rome" (what we call the Newchurch of the New Order) and consecrated four bishops for his traditional Catholic Society of St. Pius X. Wojtyla is known as the notorious Second Paedophile Newpope because of his facilitation of the rape and sodomy of children by his Newchurch clergy, particularly by his lax treatment of the notorious Bernard Law, former Newarchbishop of Boston, Massachusetts, under whom Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust burst out in the open and grew like a firestorm.
True Catholics, one hopes for the best, but Bishop Williamson's selection of Fr. Zendejas raises troubling questions. Williamson has recently been much criticized by traditional Catholics because he has been reticent to affirm clearly and decisively the invalidity of the Novus Ordo service, aka "New Mess," which is not a Mass at all, but a Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service. Zendejas seems to have a youthful exuberance, but is that enough? Traditional Catholics have had enough indecisiveness, and even perfidy, from Bernie Fellay, now Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX, who is about to sell out his group, no longer the original traditional Catholic organization founded by the straight-talking and courageous Archbishop Lefebvre.
Francis-Bergoglio seems unconstrained by anyone these days -- not by Christ, not by the Apostles, and not even by the Newchurch's beloved "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla. In an interview published on March 9, 2017, in the German newspaper Die Zeit, Bergoglio flip-flopped once again and said that he is "open" to installing married presbyters in contravention of Catholic and Apostolic Tradition. (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 "Priestly Celibacy.")
Since the institution of the Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968, Newchurch has not sacramentally "ordained priests," but unsacramentally "installed presbyters," which are essentially Protestant ministers simulating an invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New Mess" with no "eucharist" being confected. Newchurch has used unordained "lay deacons" since 1967.
Francis-Bergoglio admitted that gravely diminishing numbers of applicants for the Newchurch presbyterate are an "enormous problem." Since the Vatican II Anti-council, which did away in Newchurch with the priesthood, the Mass, and the Sacraments (except possibly for Baptism and Matrimony), few men wish to waste their lives as essentially Protestant ministers.
Bergoglio also used the opportunity of the interview to denounce again "fundamentalist Catholics," one of the terms he uses for traditional Catholics, who are his nemesis. He said that traditional Catholics reminded him of Judas.
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio is truly going beserk. The Marxist Newpope is on a binge to destroy every vestige of Catholicism. He views traditional Catholics as his enemies, standing against his anti-Catholic designs. Beware: anyone who associates with this patent heretic takes upon himself the odor of heresy.
When Newarchbishop Jose Gomes, of Los Angeles, California, determined to sell the Italianate and Mediterranean-style convent, donated by a philanthropist to the Order of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, to vulgar "pop" singer Katy Perry, he didn't factor in the courageous resistance of two retired traditionalist nuns who refuse to sell their convent, and certainly not to Perry, who they say has a "disgusting lifestyle," promoting lesbianism with her numbers, "I Kissed a Girl" and "Ur So Gay."
Sister Rita Callanan, 78, and Sister Catherine Holzman, 86, say that the Order is?"incensed" about the scam of Gomez and Perry. Gomez is apparently trying to garner the proceeds of the 14,000,000-dollar property to pay off for sex crimes in his Newarchdiocese. Perry replied, "I have this tattoo on my wrist and it says 'Jesus.'"
The vulgar singer didn't realize that she was drawing attention to her commission of a Mortal Sin, as the teaching of Scripture is that tattoos, no matter what subject they depict, are condemned as pagan and a desecration of the body. The nuns drew attention to Perry's visit to Salem, Massachusetts, where she participated in the 2014 Salem Witch Walk. Perry had also said that when she moved from "Christian music" into "pop," she had sold her soul to the Devil.
For fighting for their convent, the traditionalist sisters are now being called a "renegades," a term consistently used by the phony anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order, currently headed by Francis-Bergoglio, to describe all true Catholics, who reject Newchurch. Sister Callanan said that Newchurch had lied to them. "We had a thing from [New]rome that all our sisters would be cared for at the manor, the village, and the retreat house, and we had a retirement home. It said they would be cared for down to the last sister. And we also had something written that they couldn't take the property." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Daily Mail.]
True Catholics, Newchurch is up to its old shenanigans again. There must be a special place in Hell reserved for Newpopes and Newbishops who lie to the Lord's traditionalist sisters. And all because these "Newprelates" have brought Newchurch to ruin with court-ordered multi-billion-dollar restitutions to be paid to the child victims who were raped, sodomized, and otherwise sexually assaulted by the criminals that the Newpopes have openly allowed to operate in their Newchurch.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Fellay has been exposed again. Contrary to his mendacious statements, there is now no question that he is working with the New Order "aurhorities" in Newrome. He blindly chooses to ignore what happened to the Fraternity of St. Peter, before its official recognition by Newrome in 1988, as a panic reaction of the Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla to Archbishop Lefebvre's courageous action to consecrate four traditional Catholic bishops on June 30, 1988. Before that date the FSSP was an active concern. Once the New Order took it over, its growth became stunted, if there has been any growth at all.
In 1999 Newrome lowered the boom on the FSSP. It could no longer simulate "exclusively" the 1962 Half Novus Ordo Mess. Protocol 1411 issued on July 3, 1999, required that whenever a Novus Ordo bishop requests, FSSP presbyter-priest had to use the full-blown New Order Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Mess of 1969 to "show unity" with the New Order. The FSSP's Superior General, who objected to the Novus Ordo, was dismissed by Newrome, which then proceeded to appoint a Novus Ordo "Yes Man" as the new Superior General.
The proposed sellout of Fellay and his Neo-SSPX follows along the lines of the structure by which the Fraternity of St. Peter was straight jacketed, sidelined, and Novus Ordoized. If the sellout is effected, the same thing will happen to the Neo-SSPX as happened to the FSSP. Eventually, the Neo-SSPXers will be forced to endure the invalid Novus Ordo Mess, at least on occasion. Fellay will not even resist, as he scandalously claims that the Novus Ordo Mess is putatively valid. In any case, Newrome may expel the hated Fellay from leadership of the Neo-SSPX in its metamorphosis into the its Newchurch Fraternit? Sacerdotal du Saint-Sauveur (FSSS).
There is no Catholicism in Newrome. What Francis-Bergoglio says and does is anti-Catholic and Marxist. Even to a growing number of Newcardinals, he is intolerable. A revolt in the Newchurch of the New Order seems imminent. And this is the hapless sect with which Fellay & Co. wants to affiliate?!
On March 4, 2017, Newvatican published financial figures for its latest reported fiscal year, 2015, showing a deficit of 13,000,000 U.S. dollars, recording yet another year of loss. Notably, the figures provided were less detailed than those of for 2014. Newvatican admitted that it had "switched to a new accounting system." It is rumored that without this accounting sleight of hand, Bergoglio New Order shop would have exposed as bankrupt.
The main sources of revenue for the Unholy See are monies extorted from the local Newdioceses around the world and income from investments. The greatest costs are personal expenses for Francis-Bergoglio and his corpulent bureaucrats. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Vatican Radio.]
True Catholics, it is well documented that attendance at the "New" Mess has sunk into single digits, down from 80 per cent in 1958, the year in which Pope Pius XII died. Newchurchers are leaving in droves and cutting out donations because of Newchurch's continuing Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal. Peter's Pence, Mired in scandal, may well have gone bust already.
The man can't sing, literally -- he has only one lung. He has replaced the traditional Latin rites of the Catholic Church with vulgar Italian. He uses "pop" music in Newpapal "oecumenical" services. Yet Francis-Bergoglio had the gall to state on March 4, 2017: "Sometimes a certain mediocrity, superficiality and banality have prevailed, to the detriment of the beauty and intensity of liturgical celebrations." Now that's an understatement deserving of Pinocchio's lose nose!
Bergoglio was pushing the 1967 document Musicam sacram deriving from the Vatican II Anti-council that, as sacred-music composers around the world have charged, destroyed Catholic music. No more of the sublime Gregorian chant, no more of the lofty polyphony of Palestrina, no more of the classical masterpieces of Mozart, just Kumbaya campfire music and other "oecumenical" trash. Bergoglio ignored the 1958 document, also called Musicam sacram, issued under Pope Pius XII, which set a very high standard indeed for sacred music. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Vatican Radio.]
Francis-Bergoglio sounded a lot like his equally-hypocritical promulgator of Vatican II's barbarism, when he admitted: "Certainly, the encounter with modernity and the introduction of [vulgar] tongues into the liturgy stirred up many problems: of musical languages, forms and genres." But what is Bergoglio actually doing about it. Nothing. Just as he is doing nothing about his presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals sodomizing children. His record of four years is: all talk and no action. This man is no pope, but an immoral Marxist barbarian.
True Catholics, Francis "Mr. Hypocrite" Bergoglio wants to accord Newchurch music -- if "music" is what it can be called -- "in dialogue with the musical trends of our time, with the demands of the different cultural areas, and with an oecumenical attitude." Oh, yes, there's that heretical oecumenicsm again. Make Newchurch music Lutheran. Make Newchurch music Jewish. Make Newchurch music Mohammedan. Make Newchurch music Buddhist. Well, we have to admit that the great Johann Sebastian Bach was a Lutheran (though some think that he was a closet Catholic) and composed the most sublime Mass ever written, the High Mass in B-minor. But that is certainly not what the barbaric Bergoglio is proposing to be used in his Newchurch of the New Order!
Having been denounced for promoting fake science in the area of purported "global warming," now Francis-Bergoglio and his Newvatican is being jeered for ignorantly alleging that shortwave releases copious amounts of carbon dioxide, in order to justify shutting down Vatican Radio's shortwave broadcasts and closing its Santa Maria di Galeria transmission station. Shortwave was the glory of Vatican Radio because of its unique ability to arrive as a free and true voice, even in the most geographically and politically inhospitable places of the world.
Vatican Radio began broadcasting on two shortwave frequencies using 10 kilowatts on February 12, 1931, with the pontifical message Omni creaturae broadcast by Pope Pius XI. Also in attendance were Guglielmo Marconi, famous engineer of long-range radio transmission, and Eugenio Cardinal Pacelli, later Pope Pius XII.
Newmonsignor Dario Vigano, prefect of Francis-Bergoglio's new Secretariat for Communication, was jeered for using fake science to justify the Newvatican's closure. Vigano on March 3, 2017, appealed to the Encyclical Letter of Bergoglio known as Laudato si' of May 24, 2015, which has been criticized for advancing fake science. Vigano ignorantly alleged that shortwave releases copious carbon dioxide in violation of Bergoglio's encyclical.
However, several scientists immediately jeered Vigano's statement as fake science and stated that his allegation "does not have the slightest scientific foundation." The scientists stated that such analog radio broadcasts release twenty times "less CO2 into the atmosphere than the digital technologies with which he would like to replace shortwave." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by L'Espresso]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio & Co. can't even get their science right. They parade all over the world prattling about purported "global warming," but they have no idea of the science involved. As Bergoglio should have learned from the Galileo scandal, Newpopes should stay out of science. For the scientifically-ignorant Bergoglio to issue an "environmental encyclical" is preposterous. No wonder Bergoglio's fake Newchurch is falling down around his knees, just as is his fake science.
One of the great puzzles of the last half century is why the famous Catholic orator and apologist of the 1930s, 1940s, and 1950s, Bishop Fulton Sheen, turned against the Catholic Church after the Vatican II Anti-council of 1962-1965. Sheen had been an eloquent opponent of Marxism, first on radio in the 1930s and 1940s, then on television in the 1950s, hosting one of the most popular televisions shows in that decade.
Sheen was no ignoramus. He was one of the most highly-honored graduates of the Catholic University of the Louvain, Belgium, together with the founder of the Catholic Traditionalist Movement in 1964, Fr. Gommar DePauw. Whereas Fr. DePauw stood strongly for the traditional Catholic Faith against all opposition, no matter from what heights, Sheen, after the Anti-council, gave up the Catholic Faith and went Newchurch, forgetting the prophecy that he himself had made in 1948:
[Satan] will set up a Counter-church, which will be the ape of the [Catholic] Church. It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and emptied of its divine content. We are living in the days of the Apocalypse, the last days of our era. The two great forces -- the Mystical Body of Christ and the Mystical Body of the Antichrist -- are beginning to draw battle lines for the catastrophic contest.
The False Prophet will have a religion without a cross. A religion without a world to come. A religion to destroy religions. There will be a Counterfeit Church. Christ's Church, the Catholic Church will be one, and the False Prophet will create the other. The False Church will be worldly, oecumenical, and global. It will be a loose federation of churches and religions, forming some type of global association, a world parliament of Churches. It will be emptied of all Divine content; it will be the mystical body of the Antichrist.
The Mystical Body on earth today will have its Judas Iscariot [Newpope], and he will be the False Prophet. Satan will recruit him from our bishops. The Antichrist will not be so called; otherwise, he would have no followers. He will not wear red tights nor vomit sulphur nor carry a trident nor wave an arrowed tail as Mephistopheles in Faust. This masquerade has helped the Devil convince men that he does not exist. When no man recognizes him, the more power he exercises. God has defined Himself as "I am Who Am," and the Devil as "I Am Who Am Not."
Nowhere in Sacred Scripture do we find warrant for the popular myth of the Devil as a buffoon who is dressed like the first "red." Rather is he described as an angel fallen from heaven, as "the Prince of This World," whose business it is to tell us that there is no other world. His logic is simple: if there is no Heaven, there is no Hell; if there is no Hell, then there is no sin; if there is no sin, then there is no judge; and if there is no judgment, then evil is good, and good is evil. But above all these descriptions, Our Lord tells us that he will be so much like Himself that he would deceive even the elect -- and certainly no Devil ever seen in picture books could deceive even the elect.
How will he come in this new age to win followers to his religion? The pre-Communist Russian belief is that he will come disguised as the Great Humanitarian; he will talk peace, prosperity, and plenty, not as means to lead us to God, but as ends in themselves. The third temptation, in which Satan asked Christ to adore Him and all the kingdoms of the world would be His, will become the temptation to have a new religion without a Cross, a liturgy without a world to come, a religion to destroy a religion, or a politics which is a religion -- one that renders unto Caesar even the things that are God's.
In the midst of all his seeming love for humanity and his glib talk of freedom and equality, he will have one great secret which he will tell to no one: he will not believe in God. Because his religion will be brotherhood without the fatherhood of God, he will deceive even the elect. He will set up a Counter-church which will be the ape of the Church, because he, the Devil, is the ape of God. It will have all the notes and characteristics of the Church, but in reverse and emptied of its divine content. It will be a mystical body of the Antichrist that will in all externals resemble the mystical body of Christ. But the twentieth century will join the Counter-church because it claims to be infallible when its visible head speaks ex cathedra from Moscow on the subject of economics and politics, and as chief shepherd of world Communism. (Fulton J. Sheen, Communism and the Conscience of the West [Bobbs-Merrill Company, Indianapolis, 1948], pp. 24-25)
True Catholics, Bishop Sheen's description seventy years ago of the Newchurch of the New Order, currently headed by Francis-Bergoglio, is chillingly prophetic. The irony is that Fulton Sheen himself fell prey to the Counter-church. For a few years after the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), he deeply entangled himself in the Newchurch that was set up at that Anti-council on November 21, 1964. It seems that after a few years, however, some lights turned on in his brain, and he began to speak against certain of the Anti-council's teachings. He even went around the world encouraging the Holy Hour. The problem was that, by that time, the invalid New Mess of 1969 had gone into force around the world, so there was no Mass to confect the Sacrament, and the New Ordinal of 1968 had gone into force around the world, so there was no Catholic priesthood to confect the Sacrament. There was, and is, no "Blessed Sacrament" in Novus Ordo tabernacles for people to pray a "Holy Hour." Sheen died in 1979 a broken man, who realized that he had failed to heed his own prophesy.
Francis-Bergoglio, the "Hypocrite" Newpope, is getting hit from all sides these days. On March 1, 2017, an original member of the gutted sex-crimes commission established by Francis-Bergoglio, but never given its charter or full membership, has quit, citing her frustration with the "shameful" resistance and "constant setbacks" that the panel has encountered from the Bergoglio regime. Her stated intention was "to shake things up."
The resignation of Marie Collins from the Newpontifical Commission for the Protection of Minors threw a money-wrench into Bergoglio's false propaganda. Other members of the commission have voiced their frustration over the group?s work, complaining that Bergoglio has failed to fund it sufficiently, failed to name its full membership, failed to allow the hiring of staff, and failed to implement its basic recommendations.
Another original member of the commission, Peter Saunders, was fired in September 2016 by Francis-Bergoglio when he publicly spoke out against Bergoglio's foot-dragging in implementing his purported "zero tolerance" policy. Saunders and Collins had both threatened to resign in February 2015 because they were unhappy that Bergoglio wasn't holding his Newbishops accountable for failing to prevent, and for even covering up, sex crimes by his Newclergy against children. A third commission member, Claudio Papale, resigned in September 2016. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Italian News Agency ANSA.]
True Catholics, Marie Collins's resignation is a blow to Francis-Bergoglio's false propaganda that he is serious about combating sex crimes against children by his presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals. The history of the last four years of Bergoglio's Newpapacy couldn't be clearer: he isn't serious about the child victims. His response to this reprehensible problem in his Novus Ordo sect, just as was that of his predecessors, the "Unsaint" JPII-Woytyla, Benedict "Arnold" Ratzinger, has been all talk and no action.
In an astonishing turn of events, the Modernist/Liberalist group of some dozen Newcardinals who engineered the election of Jorge Bergoglio as "Francis," known as the St. Gallen Mafia, is now so scandalized over his Newpontificate that they have publicly called for him to abdicate from the Newpapacy on the grounds that he is a schismatic. The report was published on March 2, 2017, in the London Times from a report derived from the Milan, Italy, daily newspaper Il Giornale.
It is ironic that Modernist/Liberalist Newcardinals have now joined the Neocon Newcardinals in becoming worried that Bergoglio will produce an "explosive" schism in Newchurch that will be worse than the Protestant Revolution and could shatter Newchurch as an institution. Both groups are now openly stating what the TRADITIO Fathers and other fully traditional Catholics have been saying since the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), that Newchurch clearly lacks the Four Marks of the True Church of Christ: one, holy, catholic, and apostolic.
Before the Neocon Newchurchers grasp at the false hope that Newchurch can be "reformed," they should realize that the Newcardinals' call for Francis-Bergoglio's abdication will probably fall on deaf ears, as Francis-Bergoglio is a narcissistic tyrant who listens to no one but himself. If he doesn't listen to Jesus Christ, Whose "vicar" he purports to be. He certainly won't listen to a group of Newcardinals.
True Catholics, is the hand of Providence working in all of this? Will the result of the rank politicking in which Newchurch has been involved since before the Vatican II Anti-council be, finally, the shattering of the fraudulent Newchurch of the New Order, with its phony and invalid New Mess, New Sacraments, New Doctrine, and New Morality? The answer to that question really rests with the Newchurchers. If they have the guts to abjure their association with the heretical Newchurch sect and convert to Catholicism once again, the "institutional" Catholic Church could be restored. But we're guessing that by this time the Newchurchers have sunk so far that they won't even mind an outright schism, as long as they can keep their vulgar and invalid "worship service" -- just like the Protestants whom they have become.
Italy has not seen anything like it -- open and public ridicule of a Newpope. But Francis-Bergoglio in just four years has struck a very sour note with Italians, who view him now as anti-Catholic. First, as previously reported in these Daily Commentaries, there were the hundreds of posters that were pasted up all over Rome overnight on February 4, 2017, denouncing Bergoglio as "merciless" for violating international law in "decapitating" the sovereign order of the Knights of Malta and for perpetrating other acts of tyranny.
Now on Shrove Monday, February 26, 2017, the day following Quinquagesima (Shrove) Sunday, Francis-Bergoglio was openly ridiculed in the huge Viagreggio Carneval Parade as "Papa Communista," the "Communist Pope." A caricature of Bergoglio, carrying in his right hand a crozier ornamented not with a cross, but with the Communist hammer and sickle, was borne aloft in the largest Italian carnival parade, the Carnevale di Viareggio, a northern coastal city. This year the parade was viewed by a crowd of 300,000 people.
Francis-Bergoglio was accompanied by images of his "four Communist godfathers": Fidel Castro, Karl Marx, Vladimir Lenin, and Mao Tse-tung. Bergoglio wears a cap of the Latin American Communist mass murderer Che Guevarra, under whose giant image Bergoglio simulated an invalid Protewstant-Masonic-Pagan Mess in Havana, Cuba, on September 25, 2015. Bergoglio's left hand was contorted into a fist giving the salute of the Communist Workers' Movement. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Info Vaticana.]
True Catholics, opposition is rising to the tyrannical Newpontificate of Francis-Bergoglio. It is clear now even to the Italian on the street that this man is not a Catholic, but a Marxist, who is out to destroy his own Newchurch of the New Order, which only pretends to be Catholic. And, to accomplish this goal, Bergoglio is not hesitating to play the tyrant. More and more of his own Newcardinals, Newarchbishops, and Newbishops are denouncing him as tantamount to a heretic, the latest being Terrence Prendergast, the Archbishop of Ottawa, Canada.
New Orleans, Louisiana, was once a Catholic city in the United States, even the locus of miracles attributed to Our Lady of Prompt Succor in 1788 and 1841. In 1833 a regular carnival began with music and dance, being held on Shrove Tuesday, the day before Ash Wednesday, the beginning of the penitential season of Lent. Shove Tuesday (the word shrove meaning "to impose penance"), also known as Mardi gras ("fat Tuesday"), is the day on which all the animal fat is consumed before the Lenten fast beginning the following day.
To be sure, there is nothing intrinsically wrong with music and song on the day before the 40 days of Lent (Quadragesima) begins. The Church recognized the need to "let off a little steam" -- within the bounds of moderation, of course. But in recent years Mardi Gras has changed from being a joyous recognition of the last day before the penitential season of Lent to an all-out sensual, irreligious orgy that rivals certain festivals in pagan Rome, featuring slobbering drunkenness and unbounded sexual license.
On February 26, 2017, Shrove Sunday (Quinquagesima Sunday), all Hell literally broke loose. The pagans, many of them Newchurchers, couldn't even wait until the Shrove Tuesday of Mardi Gras, but had to get a head-start on the Sunday before. A besotted young man, who later tested out at three times the legal limit, got into his truck and plowed into the carnival crowd. Twenty-eight people were hospitalized after the five, five in danger of death. The victims range in age from as young as 3 or 4 years old to adults in their 30s and 40s.

This is what has developed under the aegis of the Newchurch of the New Order, which is not a Church, but a secular social/political organization, sporting sex crimes among its clery and hierarchy, and turning a blind eye to other gravely immoral sins, such as fornication, adultery, and drunkenness, the latter being engaged in even by a Newcardinal, as well as a Newarchbishop, who was arrested for reckless driving under the influence of five whiskies while carrying his own mother and a presbyter in the car!
True Catholics, ironically, Newchurchers, not being Catholic (whatever they call themselves), do not even fast or abstain in penance during Lent. Instead, Lent has been polluted by the worst traits of paganism. And not only Lent. The same paganization has occurred with other sacred feastdays, such as that of St. Valentine on February 14, which is the commemoration of a Martyr-Priest, and that of St. Patrick, a Confessor of the Church, on March 17, which has become merely an excuse to besot oneself into a stupor on green beer and whiskey. And the sad thing is that even those who call themselves "traditional Catholics" are beginning to acquiesce in these perversions of Holy Mother Church.
More frequent reports are being circulated that Bernie Fellay, Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX, is very close to effecting his long-desired sellout to the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order. The reports indicate that he knows he will lose many of his Neo-SSPXers and priests by doing so, but he doesn't care. He is bound and determined to reject the work of the heroic Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre in founding the original traditional Society of St. Pius X and constitute a new Novus Ordo-bound organization, Fraternit? Sacerdotal du Saint-Sauveur.
Bernie Fellay is selling out at the worst time and to the worst Newpope. Francis-Bergoglio in his very soul hates "traditionalists," if that is what Fellay can even be called now -- if he ever was. Bergoglio is an out-and-out Marxist who is destroying even what little of Catholicism might be left in the Newchurch of the New Order. His doctrine is so anti-Catholic that even his own Newcardinals have publicly denounced him as a heretic. His morals are so bad that he is now openly letting off notorious paedophiles in his Newchurch. "Birds of a feather flock together," says the aphorism, and the Bernie is casting his lot with the paedophiles.
The Italian press has exposed Francis-Bergoglio once again as the Pontifical Hypocrite when it revealed that Bergoglio personally and secretly reduced sanctions against the worst paedophile presbyters. Even Bergoglio's own canon lawyers and officials objected to his actions. Once case involved an Italian presbyter, who was convicted by an Italian criminal court for his sex crimes against at least five children as young as age 12.
Bergoglio in this case overruled the recommendations of his own Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith. In another case, he reversed the "defrocking" of a paedophile presbyter who raped children. In Bergoglio's corrupt Newvatican, the Newpope's high-ranking friends twisted his all-too-willing arm to spare the paedophile-presbyters, citing Bergoglio's own words about "mercy." Bergoglio had no mercy toward the child victims, however. Bergoglio thought that he could hide behind the secrecy and confidentially of the proceedings, but, as in the case of Benedict-Ratzinger's butler, Newvatican officials were so offended by the corruption that they leaked the information to the press.
At the same time, Francis-Bergoglio fired three longtime staffers at the Congregation dismissed who were tough on paedophile Newclergy, including the head of the Sex Crimes Unit. Bergoglio's spokesman admitted that Bergoglio would let off "even those who are guilty of heinous crimes." Bergoglio does not believe that such perverted presbyters should be dismissed from his Newclergy, whom he claims are not criminals, but "diseased," even though Bergoglio pretends in his press propaganda that he has "zero tolerance" for these heinous crimes.
The founding member of Bergoglio's own Sex Crimes Advisory Commission rejected Bergoglio's phony "mercy," stating: "All who abuse have made a conscious decision to do so. Even those who are paedophiles, experts will tell you, are still responsible for their actions. They can resist their inclinations." Bergoglio has surrounded himself with Newcardinal advisers who botched handling abuse cases in their Newarchdioceses. Bergoglio also scrapped the proposed tribunal for Newbishops who botch sex-crime cases. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
True Catholics, it can no longer be denied that Francis-Bergoglio is a paedophiliac. To secrete and support sex criminals among his clergy, including his Newbishops and Newcardinals, is so vile a crime that he has incurred the penalty prescribed by St. Paul: "They who do such things, are worthy of death: and not only they that do them, but they also that consent to them that do them" (Romans 1:32/DRV). And this is the Newpope with whom Bernie Fellay wishes to affiliate himself. "Birds of a feather flock together."
In the wake of the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), though starting at least as early as the 1950s, an unprecedented number of changes have been implemented to the "institutional" Church. Not only was an invalid Protestantized "New Mass" (not a Mass) substituted for the Catholic and Apostolic Traditional Latin Mass but also there was substituted a "new" canon law, a "new" catechism, a "new" liturgical calendar, "new" Bible translations, "new" canonization procedures, "new" sacramental forms, etc. In fact, the entire divine constitution of the Catholic Church was replaced in 1964 by a Protestantized fraud. The "institutional" Church in 1964, after the Vatican II Anti-council, became an anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order.
There is now no doubt that the Newchurch of the New Order, currently presided over by the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, which replaced the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church on November 21, 1964, is not the Catholic Church. On that date the constitution for the Newchurch of the New Order was officially promulgated in the document Lumen gentium. The Church described in that document is not the Catholic Church.
One of our readers compiled the following partial list of differences between the Newchurch and the Catholic Church. This list constitutes undeniable proof that Newchurch is not the Catholic Church, even though that Newchurch continues to call itself "Catholic" to rake in money and wield political power. Therefore, no one who calls himself a Catholic can have anything to do with the anti-Catholic, anti-Tradition, heretic Newchurch any more than he can have anything to do with the anti-Catholic, anti-Tradition, heretic Protestant sects.
