Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
We have a new Muslim family on our street. The other day the man knocked on the door and said that he had a cake for us. He said it was his tradition and that he gave cakes to most of the other neighbors at the same time. My mother, who had never met him before, answered the door. She just took the cake and said thank you. We opened it up the box. It was a store-made cake that said "EID Celebration." Was it wrong to accept the cake?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Taking a leaf from Pontius Pilate, who, when asked by the Jewish Temple leaders to change the wording of the title above Christ's crucifix, replied: "Quod scripsi, scripsi," (John 19:22/DRV) essentially, What's done is done. It appears that your neighbor was just trying to be friendly and that your mother accepted the cake in that spirit.
In Catholic moral theology, such little civilities, like your Jewish neighbor giving you a bottle of Maneschewitz wine (ghastly sweet as it is!) or coconut cookies at Passover, can be tolerated in a non-Catholic country -- and, by the action of the Newpopes after the Vatican II Anti-council, there are no Catholic countries left.
But turnabout is fair play. You should bake some Christmas cookies in the shape of Catholic symbols and give them to your Muslim neighbor this Christmas. Better cakes than bombshells!
It is clear by now that Francis-Bergoglio is no pope, but has given up his tiara (in which he was never crowned as pope) to become merely a rank Marxist politician. When is the last time that he spoke as a true Catholic about following the Commandments of Lord Jesus Christ, without compromise? When is the last time that he fostered deep veneration of the Holy Angels and the true Saints? When is the last time that he preached the unadulterated doctrine and moral teachings of the Catholic Church? Likely never in his Newpapacy.
On June 24, 2017, Francis-Bergoglio had plenty of time to put on again his Marxist politician's hat to call for a "one world government" and a worldwide "political authority," goals dear to the Marxist Leftists, not to say of his once-Nazi Rightist predecessor, Benedict-Ratzinger. Neither choose to be Newpopes, let alone popes, but crass politicians, with no more religious authority than a mere politician -- which is to say, none. Such a doctrine of a One World Government rejects the Catholic teaching of the Church's Universal Doctor, St. Thomas Aquinas, and other Doctors of the Church.
The stated justification for such a Marxist goal is the now-widely-dunked doctrine of "global warming," which has been exposed as having essentially not a scientific, but a political basis. Bergoglio stated that the United Nations doesn't have enough power. A "new global political authority" must be instituted, said Bergoglio, "for the good of humanity." Joined in his call for a New World Order government was a pagan, the Dalai Lama, and a non-Christian, Rabbi Abraham Skorka. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Guardian.]
True Catholics, it is more and more clear that the Newchurch of the New Order, instituted at the Vatican II Anti-council on September 21, 1964, is simply a vehicle for establishing a secular New World Order. It has nothing to do with Christ, the Blessed Virgin, the Holy Angels, the Saints, or anything Catholic -- except when a little frosting has to be applied to fool the Newchurchers. Its leader no longer even pretends to be a pope, but instead shows himself as the servant of the One World State. No true Catholic can have anything to do with this bald-faced perversion of the true Church or with its agents.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
It is claimed that two new priests were ordained in Great Britain for the first time in decades in the so-called "Extraordinary" Latin rite, on June 24, 2017. The supposed ordinations were conducted in a shrine church, not in the Newcathedral. I do not know if the Newchurch archbishop's long train is traditional. To me, this all stinks to high heaven. Am I right in thinking that this is all just another Newchurch fraud?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Your instincts are quite correct: it is all just another Newchurch fraud. It doesn't matter how long the "train" is. The fact is that these ordinations are invalid. You see, it doesn't matter that this Novus Ordo bishop might have used the 1962 form (erroneously called "Extraordinary"), which is not the traditional Catholic form, in any case. The "bishop" simulating the ordinations has never been consecrated as a Catholic bishop, but was merely "installed" in 2000 in the invalid New Order Protestantized Ordinal of 1968.
Neither the Newbishop nor the presbyters involved are Catholic priests, as they have not been ordained and given Sacramental powers (potestates) through the valid Catholic Sacrament of Holy Orders. The Newbishop and presbyters are thus tantamount to Protestant ministers and should be shunned as such. These Newbishops that play dress-up with "trains" are ridiculous figures, being not Catholic bishops, but slaves to the anti-Catholic and now Marxist New Order of Francis-Bergoglio.
And you thought that the "New Mess" (Novus Ordo) of 1969 was anti-Catholic and invalid! Just wait until Francis-Bergoglio's "Newest Mess" is rolled out! As we previously reported in our Daily Commentaries, Bergoglio formed a top-secret commission in 2016 to come up with Mess that would be acceptable for concelebration with heretics. The commission includes representatives from heretical sects, as did Hannibal Bugnini's post Vatican II commission, which originally came up with the invalid "New Mess."
On June 20, 2017, the report that leaked out that, to please the heretics, there would be no consecration (the current New Mess consecration is, of course, invalid), but a moment of silence in order that everyone present could make up his own words mentally. The silence would be followed by the Pater Noster -- in the defective Protestant form, of course.
Francis-Bergoglio may be a Marxist, but he is no fool. He knows that he has lost the argument about the validity of the "New Mess," with more and more Catholics calling it patently invalid, as did we TRADITIO Fathers from the beginning. Therefore, Bergoglio wants to play the Vatican II game and change the meaning of the words. "For the sake of oecumenism," he wants to stop thinking of the sacraments (which Newchurch no longer has, except sometimes baptism and matrimony) as "valid" or "invalid." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the daily newspaper La Stampa, of Turin, Italy.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio is now working on a new heresy that would consider sacraments as "partially valid." That was the same kind of ploy used by Fr. Josef Ratzinger, later to be known as Benedict-Ratzinger, in denying the dogma that the Catholic Church is the "one true Church of Christ" and pushing the heretical notion that all sects are true, at least in part. This is the Heresy of Oecumenism, adopted at the Vatican II Anti-council. Those Neocon Newchurchers and pseudo-traditionalists -- and that includes the Neo-SSPX's Bernie Fellay -- who persist in bending the knee to Bergoglio's heretical Marxist Newchurch are going to be singing a different tune when they are forced to concelebrate the "Newest Mess" with Protestants!
You remember the seven French deans/pastors whom Bernie Fellay, the Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX fired from their positions because they dared to reject the proposed agreement that would sell out the Neo-SSPX to the anti-Catholic New Order sect headed by Francis-Bergoglio.
Dean Fr. Aldalur had written a study for a June 2017 newsletter proving the insanity of the Neo-SSPX coming under the aegis of Newrome. But the Dean made one mistake: he left for three days to preach a retreat for a group to receive First Holy Communion. During those three days, a Fellayite spy sent the Dean's manuscript to Fellay's District House.
As the newsletter had already been published, but not distributed, it was trashed and republished with the Dean's study censored out and a pro-Fellayite piece substituted. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Le Trinitaire.]
True Catholics, the depth of corruption in Fellay's Neo-SSPX seems to know no bounds. Yet Fellay himself is bound to complete the sellout to Francis-Bergoglio's New Order sect, come Hell or high water. Given the turn of events in Newchurch with three Newdioceses in schism, it looks like Hell will come faster for the New Order and their sympathizers than the high water!
Even the pre-Christian Romans had more of a sense of decorum than the Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, who as a Marxist is ofttimes worse than a pagan. On June 19, 2017, Newcardial Ivan Dias, of Bombay, India, died at the age of 81. Bergoglio took personal charge of his funeral in Rome. If anyone wants to see what the future of the Novus Ordo "liturgy" will be, its pagan nature is demonstrated by this Bergoglian funeral.
First of all, the coffin is tossed on the floor, with barely a throw-rug underneath it. No dignified catafalque, traditionally called for, upon which to place the coffin. For Francis-Bergoglio, that would be too traditional, even for a Newcardinal. No black pall, in fact, no pall at all to cover the coffin. Just some big Protestant-looking book on top of the nude coffin. For Bergoglio, a funeral pall would be too traditional.
What else is missing from this non-Catholic Bergoglian funeral? Well, there are no unbleached candles on either side of the coffin to remind us that this man received the light of Christ at his Baptism circa 1936. For Bergoglio, there is no traditional Baptism, after all, just a Rite of Initiation into the Novus Ordo Club. One looks in vain to find a Crucifix, to remind us that Christ died for this man with the ultimate sacrifice. Once cannot even see a simple Protestant cross. For Bergoglio, funeral candles and a crucifix, let alone a cross, would be too Catholic. Moreover, Bergoglio blasphemously vested in red, as if for a martyr's funeral. Ironically, Newchurch cannot have martyrs any more than the Protestant sects, most of whose heresies Newchurch now shares.
True Catholics, this Protestant rite of funerals is now established in Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order. On April 25, 2017, Bergoglio "presided" at the funeral of Newcardinal Attilio Nicora in St. Peter's Archbasilica. Same deal: coffin on the floor, no pall, no candles, no crucifix, red vestments. The New Order has no valid sacraments (except sometimes baptism and matrimony) and thus no sacramental grace. No wonder Newchurch is so completely graceless and moribund. It is no better than the graceless Protestant sects.
We received many expressions of interest from our readers in learning more about how Pope Pius XII may have been associated with the ramp-up to the invalid Novus Ordo of 1969. In certain enclaves of traditional Catholics, Pius XII has acquired a kind of semi-divine status as the "last traditional pope," but they are ignorant of the degree to which Pius XII's commitment to the Catholic and Apostolic Mass has become more and more suspect as the years go by. For example, one significant secret Memorandum came to light only in 2003.
The facts are clear. In 1947, Pius XII issued Mediator Dei, an encyclical letter on the liturgy, which was originally thought to stand staunchly for the traditional position. Looking back on this encyclical now, we see that it exhibits characteristics of the indirect, "nuanced" wording that became the hallmark of the Vatican II Anti-council of 1962-1965. Pius XII did state some traditional principles and did reject the most extreme deviations from them (which the Modernists were implementing even then), but he did not condemn the "liturgical reform movement" and provided no penalties for violating liturgical law. Mediator Dei is a weak document, and its weakness opened the door for the Modernists to take over and ultimately destroy in the Newchurch of the New Order the Traditional Latin Mass.
In 1948, the year after Mediator Dei, which some say was ghostwritten by the Newpope who as Paul VI-Montini promulgated all the documents of the Vatican II Anti-council, Pius XII took a radical step. He knew that the Sacred Congregation of Rites, which in 1588, just after the dogmatic Council of Trent, was instituted to protect and preserve the integrity of the Catholic and Apostolic Roman Rite, would never go for a "reform" of the Holy Mass. It was a deeply traditional congregation. So in 1948 Pius XII appointed a new Liturgical Reform Commission to "reform" the Catholic and Apostolic Mass -- which, according to the dogmatic Council of Trent was irreformable. To this Commission, Pius XII appointed only a half dozen "reformers," to be led by the future Chief Architect of the "New Mess," Hannibal Bugnini. The Commission worked in strict secrecy, because if its heretical Modernist principles were exposed to the Roman Curia, they would have been rejected outright.
It could be argued that Pius XII was simply throwing a bone to the Modernist Revolutionaries to keep them under control, but if that was his intention, he failed, and the Modernist heretics whom Pope St. Pius X fought so hard to defeat, won the day. In 1949, the Commission's plans to de-Romanize and Protestantize the Holy Mass were written down in a secret Memorandum. So secret were the Bugnini Commission's plans to destroy the Mass that the 1949 Memorandum was not published until 54 years later, in 2003.
On July 22, 1949, a copy of the Modernist and revolutionary Memorandum was presented to Pius XII. And the supposed "last traditional pope" was apparently swayed by the propaganda contained in it, which had been developed in Modernist circles since the 1920s. To be sure, the propaganda was deftly stated so as to clothe its heresies with pretentious verbiage supporting Modernist and Protestant principles of "fake liturgy," which germinated under Pius XII and culminated in the invalid Novus Ordo Mess of 1969.
As some enclaves of traditional Catholics divinize Pius XII as the "last traditional pope," so they falsely characterize John XXIII as anti-traditional. The facts do not sustain such a judgment. On February 22, 1962, John XXIII personally promulgated, in the rarely-used solemn form before the Cardinals assembled, his Apostolic Constitution Veterum sapientia, in which he wrote some of the most Catholic words on the perpetual necessary of the Latin language for the Mass. John XXIII's Apostolic Constitution was uncompromising traditional, whereas Pius XII's Encyclical Letter Mediator Dei was not.
It appears that John XXIII was not in favor of Pius XII's liturgical "reforms." In 1960, when John promulgated the rubrics that led to so-called "Mess of 1962," he specifically made it clear that he was not doing so because he favored it, but in personal deference to his beloved predecessor. Pius XII, under whom the "reforms" were engineered. The man who made up the "1962 Mess," Hannibal Bugnini, was hired by Pius XII in 1948, but John XXIII judged that he had heretical tendencies and had him fired in 1962.
Slipping under the radar, probably because the document was issued in Latin only, and Newchurchers and the press are, for the most part, ignorant of the Catholic language, was Francis-Bergoglio's implied reference to the Great Western Schism -- that time in the history of the Church when there were two, or even three, popes, and no one, not even the Saints at the time, could agree on who was the real pope. From June 23 to 25, 2017, a commemoration of the 700th anniversary of the now-discredited Avignon papacy, which caused the schism, will be held, and Bergoglio has appointed a retired Newarchbishop to represent him. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Vatican Press Office.]
The similarities between the time of the Great Western Schism in the Church and the Great Vatican II Schism today are uncanny. Even many traditional Catholics are ignorant of the fact that Pope John XII declared that the papacy was officially deserting Rome and would thenceforth rule from the southeastern French city of Avignon, there beholden not to Christ but to the Kings of Spain. That Avignon papacy lasted from 1317 to 1377 and set off the Great Western Schism in the Church for forty years.
The irony is that Bergoglio, in his document, quotes Matthew 16:18 -- in the Novus Ordo's "New " Latin version, of course, not St. Jerome's traditional Vulgate version -- which is thought to speak of the pope. Thus, Bergoglio begs the question. The irony is that Bergoglio's statement is circular, for during that period of the Great Western Schism, nobody knew who the real pope was!
True Catholics, there is more irony in Francis-Bergoglio's document. Ironically, the document's incipit is Suorum pontificum -- most likely mocking Benedict-Raztinger, the incipit of whose 2007 document on the Vatican II Anti-council's Half New Order "Latin Mess" of 1962 is Summorum pontificum. Bergoglio hates Catholicism, particularly traditional Catholicism, as he works to make Newchurch into a Marxist organization, so his mockery is not surprising.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Perhaps in a few months from now, I can offer an update on the Newbishops that Francis-Bergoglio is appointing to take over the Newchurch of the New Order and make it not Modernist, but openly Marxist, that is, a self-proclaimed enemy of Catholicism. In order words, Bergoglio is cunningly forcing Newchurch to commit suicide by turning its own rules against it.
Francis-Bergoglio has now even accelerated his rate of appointment of Newbishops, including auxiliary bishops that didn't even exist before. By the end of this year, there should be in place an overwhelming mass of Bergoglian Marxist bishops. Nothing less than a miracle or a meteor fall can possibly take them out now. Newchurch has long ago ceased to be the Catholic Church.
Frankly, I don't think that Francis-Bergoglio has any plans to abdicate any time soon. I think that his comments about poor health and plans for departure are all ruses meant to buy him more time to replace the naive neocon prelates. His enemies in the Newcuria will hold back their attack if they misthink that he is going soon anyway. I think that he will abdicate eventually, if only to destroy the notion that the papacy is a vocation, but he will do that when his health makes it difficult for him to proceed or when he turns eighty-five.
By that point Newchurch will be fully Protestant -- even worse -- and will be dead to truth and grace like the Protestant sects. Thank God, traditional Catholic bishops, priests, and laypeople are keeping the Catholic Church alive "in the catacombs," as Pope Pius XII's prophesied.
On February 20, 1949, Pope Pius XII (r. 1939-1958) gave a discourse "To the Faithful" little noted at the time, called simply Ancora una volta [Yet again]. The direct impetus for the discourse was to condemn the persecution of Christians in Eastern Europe by Socialist and Communist dictatorships. In the discourse, Pius XII prophesied an heretical and cowardly "institutional" Church that would "weaken the law of God, adapting it to the taste of human desires, when she should loudly proclaim and defend it" and would give herself over to "the shifting sands of the opinions of the day."
Pius XII even seemed to foresee the return of heretic popes, of the kind that infected the Church in the fourth century, who adopted the Arian heresy that denied the divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ. Asked Pius XII: "Can you imagine a Successor of the first Peter, who would bow to similar demands?" Traditional Catholics will easily recognize that Pius XII's prophecy has been fulfilled in the Newchurch of the New Order and its Newpopes Paul VI-Montini, JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and, most especially, Francis-Bergoglio. Out of the mouths of these Newpopes has come heretically-tinged and outright heretical documents and statements. Pius XII describes in detail what the fallen Church of the future would be -- and he certainly hit the nail on the head, as we see in post Vatican II times:
True Catholics, it seems that many traditional Catholics have bought into the Modernist propaganda that John XXIII was the first Modernist pope and that Pius XII was the last traditional pope. Historical research over the last fifty years indicates that, if anything, the truth swings the other way. Pius XII, far from being so "traditionalist," actually set in motion the destruction of the Church, perhaps in part unwittingly. In 1948, Pius XII appointed Hannibal Bugnini to lead the new Commission for Liturgical Reform. Bugnini, who became the Chief Architect of the invalid and anti-Catholic New Order "liturgy" wasted no time in changing the Easter rites in 1951 and then gutting in 1955 the most sacred rites in the Roman Missal, those of Holy Week. The Freemason Bugnini was the architect also of the Half New Order "1962 Mess," which no true Catholic should frequent, if only in view of the fact that just seven years later it was "updated" to become the invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Order (Novus Ordo) Mess of 1969.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I know that a Catholic who attempts a marriage outside the Church, as in a Protestant church, synagogue, mosque, or temple or before a civil official, excommunicates. But, in a practical sense, how are we supposed to deal with such people who have chosen to live publicly in a state of sin? Even many "Catholics" these days are bigamists, having divorced their spouses then "remarried" someone else. Are there any practical guidelines that a serious Catholic might follow?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
First of all, one must be aware of the fundamental principle involved. Our Lord Jesus Christ is very specific about such situations. When a Catholic presumes to marry outside the Church, making public vows before an heretical, infidel, or pagan "minister," or making those vows before a civil official, that person is publicly proclaiming that he or she is no longer a Catholic and thus, by his or her own choice, excommunicates himself or herself from the true Church, the Mass, the Sacraments, and the graces that they provide. Once that fundamental principle is understood, practical moral guidelines can be given that allow some discretion for taking into account exceptional circumstances.
On the one hand, a Catholic is obliged not to give scandal by any manifestation or appearance of approval of the invalid marriage. Such scandal can contribute to the sins of others by bad example, hypocrisy, etc. On the other hand, this obligation must be weighed against the Catholic's duty of charity toward sinners. It is an essential part of Catholic teaching that God wants no sinner, not even the greatest, to be lost; that there is hope for every sinner until death has actually sealed his fate forever; that it is the duty of every Catholic to desire, to pray for, and, in so far as he has the power, to work for the conversion of sinners, especially of those to whom he is bound in some way, such as family members and friends.
The difficulty is to exercise this charity in such a way as to eliminate any real scandal. When it is remembered that scandal is given only when some kind of approval is expressed or manifested for the sin of entering an invalid marriage, certain guiding principles can be set down. The Catholic must avoid two moral extremes. The first is that of erroneously making the danger of scandal a reason for cutting off every form of charity to the sinner and thus practically slamming the door against his return to the grace of God. The other extreme is to make charity a cloak for so complete and warm-hearted an acceptance of the invalidly married couple that it amounts to approval of the evil itself, encourages them to be content in their sins, and encourages others to commit the same grave sins.
According to a traditional Catholic moral theologian who has examined these situations, it would be seriously wrong for Catholics engage in activities and events that celebrate the marriage. But a Catholic is not obligated to ostracize and completely avoid such persons. St. Paul commands Christians: "Yet do not esteem [the sinner] as an enemy but admonish him as a brother" (2 Thessalonians 3:15/DRV).
If, in following the teachings of Christ, you as a Catholic are criticized by others for a "holier than thou" attitude, first explain the teaching clearly. Many people do not understand Christian teaching or why it makes sense -- Newchurchers most of all! When in doubt, exhibit prudence (practical wisdom), the greatest of the moral virtues. In cases of doubt, consult your traditional Catholic priest for guidance.
Schism in Newchurch is spreading, as the Marxist Newpope loses control of his Newclergy. In Osorno, Chile, the Newchurchers refused to accept Bergoglio's appointment of a paedophiliac as their Newbishop, pelted Bergoglio's nominee with dung, and blocked his installation. In Ahiara, Nigeria, presbyters refused to accept Bergoglio's Newbishop and locked the Newcathedral to prevent his installation.
On June 15, 2017, nearly half of the presbyters of the Newdiocese of Ruteng, 69 Newepiscopal vicars and Newparish pastors, just up and quit, leaving their Novus Ordo temples empty. The presbyters are fed up with Bergoglio's corrupt regime and its Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. Bergoglio has supported his Newbisihop Hubertus Leteng, who stands accused of embezzling more than 100,000 U.S. dollars of Newchurch funds to support his mistress. The presbyters "demand renewal in pastoral work, as well as in Church and financial management." The presbyters stated that they were forced to take the ultimate action because Leteng refused to discuss his crimes. When the presbyters asked for details, Leteng told them that it was "none of their business."
In 2016, 112 presbyters of the Newdiocese signed a letter of no confidence in Francis-Bergoglio's Newbishop. The presbyters submitted a report to Newvatican, but Francis-Bergoglio took no action. Newbishop Leteng has told the presbyters who have resigned what amounts to "good riddance." Leteng still refuses to answer the charges of embezzlement and sexual corruption against him.
True Catholics, are we seeing now the beginning of the official disintegration of the Newchurch of the New Order before our very eyes? The corruption in Newchurch has dramatically increased under the Bergoglio regime. Presbyters, even Newcardinals, have had enough and are going public. The Marxist Newpope's days may well be numbered.
Tim Farron, head of Britain's third-largest political party, the Liberal Democrats, resigned on June 15, 2017, saying that the party stands incompatible with his Christian Faith. "To be a political leader, especially of a progressive liberal party in 2017, and to live as a committed Christian, to hold faithfully to the Bible's teaching has felt impossible.... I have found myself torn between living as a faithful Christian and serving as a political leader," said Farron.
Farron hit the nail on the head about the hypocrisy of Western nations, once Christian: "We are kidding ourselves if we think we yet live in a tolerant, liberal society." Farron was repeatedly attacked during Britain's recent electoral campaign because he refused to back down from his rejection of homosexuality and abortion and instead held to Christian teaching against such sins. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic Herald.]
True Catholics, Farron found himself in the same situation in which many Christian politicians find themselves today, being attacked for adhering to Christian teaching and God's Natural Law. Farron's answer, however, is wrong. Christians must stand up for the teachings of their Faith even if, as in the case the Apostles and 12,000,000 Christians in the first three centuries, it meant death. Only if Christians show the courage of the Apostles and the early Christian Martyrs is there any hope of stopping the atheistic Leftists from completely taking over Western Civilization. That truth might not have occurred to Farron because those who call themselves "Christians" in the present times are often abysmally ignorant of the Faith and its history.
The Heralds of the Gospel (Evangelii Praecones) and the Lay Confreres of the Virgin Flower of Carmel (Communitas Virginis Floris Carmeli) is a pseudo-traditionalist organization within the Newchurch of the New Order. That is, it is not really traditional, but compared to the openly Modernist organizations in the New Order sect, it falsely passes for "conservative." In fact, there is nothing in the New Order sect that is traditional and Catholic: not the Mass, not the Sacraments, not the doctrine, not the morals.
The organizatons originated in Brazil, which has an actual traditional Catholic organization in Novo Friburgo, headed by independent traditional Catholic bishop Dom Tomas Aquin, OSB, consecrated outside Francis-Bergoglio's heretical Modernist Newchurch structure. The pseudo-traditional group was recognized in 2005 by the "Nazi" Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger. It is reported to be strongly missionary and Marian. However, Francis-Bergoglio has officially stopped missionary work in Newchurch because of the Vatican II "Oecumenical" heresy, which teaches that all religions are equal.
Now, under pressure from the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, the Superior General, Newmonsignor João Scognamiglio Clá Dias, quit on June 2, 2017. The Heralds and the Confreres were of "pontifical right," the same setup that Bernie Fellay of the Neo-SSPX covets. However, this "right" did not protect the organizations from the chopping block of Bergoglio. Bergoglio resented the organizations because they consisted of young conservatives, numbering 120 presbyter-ministers and 44,000 laymen in 80 countries, who venerated Our Lady of Fatima. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the German Katholisches News Service.]
True Catholics, the rumor in Newrome is that Newmonsignor Scognamiglio wanted to spare himself the indignity that Francis-Bergoglio imposed upon the head of the Franciscans of the Immaculata, who occasionally performed a so-called "Latin Mass" (not the Traditional Latin Mass) and were virtually suppressed at the beginning of Bergoglio's regime. The rumor in Newrome is that Bergoglio is getting ready to quash the conservative Heralds and Confreres. You see, anything Catholic is abhorrent to Bergoglio, the anti-Catholic Modernist Newpope.
The Newchurch diocese of Ahiara, Nigeria, has gone into schism, declares Francis-Bergoglio. It refuses to accept his Newbishop, Peter Okpaleke. At the time of Okpaleke's installation, laymen locked the Newcathedral to prevent his installation and placed a coffin inscribed with Bergoglio's appointee's name at the Newdiocesan headquarters.
On June 15, 2017, Bergoglio has demanded from every presbyter in the Newdiocese a blood oath to obey him and his Newbishop, or be suspended. Ahiara joins Osorno, Chile, in schism, whose Newchurchers rioted against Bergoglio's paedophiliac Newbishop, Juan Barros Madrid, and blocked his installation at the Newcathedral. Bergoglio's perverted choice was pelted with dung.
Like Benedict-Ratzinger before him, whose choice of a former Nazi to be Newprimate of Poland led the Polish president and his cabinet to block the installation in the Newcathedral, Francis-Bergoglio reportedly flew into a rage and threatened to abolish the Newdiocese entirely. Of course, the Marxist Newpope has no similar emotions against the Modernist heretics that populate his Newchurch (including himself)!
In the Polish case, Ratzinger was forced to withdraw the name of his former Nazi appointee. But Bergoglio, who falsely claims to be "Mr. Humility," will not humble himself to withdraw the Nigerian nominee and appoint one accepted by his Newclergy and laity. Instead, Bergoglio has chosen to drive Nigeria into schism. Bergoglio, who absolutely will not suspend his thousands of paedophile Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters, was ready to suspend the whole Newdiocese. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic Herald.]
True Catholics, is the regime of the Marxist Francis-Bergoglio cracking? As his tyrannical acts against the Catholic Church mount, his facade as "Mr. Humility" is crumbling like the assault of the Roman army against the Jewish Temple. As we TRADITIO Fathers have previously documented, the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order and its Newpopes, after less than fifty years, is sinking into the pit -- as it should -- having destroyed the faith of hundreds of millions of once Catholic people.
For those who are devotees of Fatima, Newchurch has now committed the ultimate desecration, adoring the pillars of the Fatima Shrine for the otherwise sacred Feast of Pentecost with the homosexual colors that promote sodomy, which the Bible, and so the Catholic Church, teaches is one of the Four Sins that Cry out to God for Retribution. This desecration on the part of Francis-Bergoglio's New Order sect, which is definitely not Catholic, must be the last straw for the devotees of Fatima, who, if henceforth they associate with the Newchurch of the New Order, must be called blasphemous "Fatimites" because they are openly blaspheming Our Lady, whom they falsely purport to venerate.
There are certain publications that claim to be "traditional" that maintain a connection with the anti-Catholic Newchurch and its Marxist Newpope. Now these publications are exposed for the frauds that they are. Now the true colors of Francis-Bergoglio's phony New Order sect have been exposed completely. As the High Priest Caiphas said: "What further need have we of witnesses? Behold, now you have heard the blasphemy" (Matthew 26:65/DRV).

True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio and his Newchurch have committed this desecration in recognition that the month of June is claimed by the Homosexual Movement as the "Month of Gay Pride." Around the world immoral parades will be held in June in major cities. Now Fatima and Newvatican join them in their depravity. But no true Catholic can.
Data from a nationwide survey in the United States shows that students with no religious affiliation has tripled in the last thirty years, from 10 per cent in 1986 to 31 per cent in 2016, according to data from the Cooperative Institutional Research Program's Freshman Survey, involving 137,000 freshmen in 184 colleges and universities. Of the 31 per cent irreligious, 20 per cent describe themselves as outright atheists.
From 1986 to 2016, the number who attended religious services dropped by more than double. So, one out of three college freshmen now have no religion, and about the same percentage never attend church services. Most of this irreligion comes at the expense of Newchurch, shows the survey. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Scientific American.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order is in a real pickle now. Attendance at its Protestantized "New Order" Messes has decreased sharply since 1990. The percentage of students reporting that they miss Mess has more than doubled. The CIRP Survey shows that within thirty years, college students will be entirely anti-religious. We TRADITIO Fathers are not that optimistic. Our prediction for the essential death of Newchurch is much sooner than that!
Newcardinal Franc Rode, of Slovenia, on June 5, 2017, publicly claimed that U.S. First Lady Melania Trump was baptized as a "Catholic," that is, a Newchurcher, on the basis of her own statement to him when she met with Newcardinal and the Slovenian ambassador after her visit with Francis-Bergoglio on May 24, 2017. At that time Melania was reported to have asked Bergoglio to bless her rosary, but he did not apparently do so. (Newchurch clergy have no power to bless, and usually do not do so except in the most peremptory way.) Melania also spent time in prayer before a statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary.
The next day Melania Trump's spokeswoman confirmed that the U.S. First Lady professes the "Catholic" Faith, but did not say when or where Melania had been baptized. Melania was born in 1970, so the Catholic Church had already been replaced six years previous as the "institutional" Church by the heretical and anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order. Newcardinal Rode claimed that Melania spoke with him of her baptism in Raka, Slovenia, her mother’s hometown, close to Melania's birthplace of Novo Mesto. Though Melania didn’t confirm the year in which she was baptized, she presumably received baptism as a child. Rode claimed to know the date on which the Newparish presbyter had baptized her, but that date was not revealed. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Vatican Radio.]
Now to the elephant in the middle of the room. No Catholic can validly marry a Protestant heretic (without an ecclesiastical dispensation for just cause), much less in a Protestant church. Moreover, Donald Trump has two living "wives": Ivana (by whom he had Donald Jr., Eric, and Ivanka) and Marla (by whom he had Tiffany). Donald, who claims to be a Presbyterian, married his third "wife," Melania in 2005 in a Protestant Episcopalian church in Palm Beach, Florida, near his estate at Mar-a-Lago. If Melania was a "Catholic," she should have known better!
True Catholics, from a Catholic perspective, Donald Trump is still married to Ivana Trump, who is still living, the woman to whom he pledged to stay faithful until death. The marriages to Marla and Melania are, therefore, invalid and bigamous. Moreover, Melania, having presumed to marry an already-married man and, to boot, in an heretical Protestant church, incurred the penalty of excommunication. That is the truth that other politicians, many of whose marital backgrounds are equally deplorable, are afraid to mention -- no matter how admirable Donald Trump may be in the office of President of the United States. Former U.S. President Ronald Reagan had a similar checkered marital background, and Reagan's families, unlike Trump's, couldn't get along together!
Newpope Francis-Bergoglio has advice about what to do when "all is dark." Actually, it's good advice, but ironically he didn't realize that he was giving advice against himself and his fake Newchurch! The darkness that Bergoglio was describing in his "homily" on June 9, 2017, was actually describing himself as the "Newpope of Darkness," who has moved Hell and Earth to destroy what little remains of the true Catholic Church. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Zenit News Agency.]
Bergoglio's advice is exactly how we have been telling our readers for 23 years now to respond to the attempted suppression of the Catholic Church by the dark days of the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order, headed now by Bergoglio: "pray, be patient, and trust God." This what the true Catholics of the fourth century did when they saw the Catholic Church of their time taken over by the Arian heretics, who denied the divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ. The true Catholics in those dark days refused to associate with the heretics, even though the heretics, including most of the popes and bishops, had taken possession of the Church's buildings and ecclesiastical office, including the papacy, just as the Modernist heretics have done in our day.
The Great Doctor of the Church, St. Athanasius, "Defender of the Faith," who was personally persecuted by the heretics, wrote an uncompromising and heartfelt letter to his faithful flock at the time:
May God console you!... What saddens you ... is the fact that others [the Arian heretics] have occupied the churches by violence, while during this time you are on the outside. It is a fact that they have the premises -- but you have the apostolic Faith. They can occupy our churches, but they are outside the true Faith. You remain outside the places of worship, but the faith dwells within you. Let us consider: what is more important, the place or the Faith? The true Faith, obviously.
Who has lost and who has won in the struggle -- the one who keeps the buildings or the one who keeps the Faith? The true Faith, obviously. That therefore the ordinances which have been preserved in the churches from old time until now may not be lost in our days,... rouse yourselves, brethren,... seeing them now seized upon by aliens....
You are the ones who are happy; you who remain within the Church by your Faith, who hold firmly to the foundations of the Faith that has come down to you from Apostolic Tradition. And if an execrable jealousy has tried to shake it on a number of occasions, it has not succeeded. They are the ones who have broken away from it in the present crisis.
NO ONE, EVER, WILL PREVAIL AGAINST YOUR FAITH, BELOVED BROTHERS. AND WE BELIEVE THAT GOD WILL GIVE US OUR CHURCHES BACK SOME DAY. THUS, THE MORE VIOLENTLY THEY TRY TO OCCUPY THE PLACES OF WORSHIP, THE MORE THEY SEPARATE THEMSELVES FROM THE CHURCH. THEY CLAIM THAT THEY REPRESENT THE CHURCH; BUT IN REALITY, THEY ARE THE ONES WHO ARE EXPELLING THEMSELVES FROM IT AND GOING ASTRAY. EVEN IF CATHOLICS FAITHFUL TO TRADITION ARE REDUCED TO A HANDFUL, THEY ARE THE ONES WHO ARE THE TRUE CHURCH OF JESUS CHRIST.
True Catholics, our fellow Catholics at the time of the Arian heresy prayed the Mass and put their trust in God, Who in a century had substantially wiped out the heretics. But they had to be patient -- it took more than a century to restore the true Catholic Church and the papacy.
Newchurch leaders and Protestant leaders ensconced themselves at a conference in the Italian Monastery of Bose to discuss how to abandon Catholic doctrine outright in favor of "Catholic Evangelicalism and Catholic Protestantism," albeit Newchurch has abandoned many points of Catholic doctrine already. The oecumenical, co-ed monastery was established on the very day the Vatican II Anti-council ended, December 8, 1965. Oecumenism is the Modernist heresy, condemned by the popes, which teaches "all religions are equal" and "we all worship the same god."
So horrified by the foundation of this monastery, involving the presence of non-Catholics, was the local bishop that he took the rare step of promulgating an indict against it. The following year, however, Newrome, now possessed by the Newchurch of the New Order, not the Catholic Church, rescinded the bishop's interdict.
Placing his imprimatur on this heretical conference as a speaker, Benedict-the President Emeritus of the Pontifical Council for Christian Unity called for "Evangelical Catholicism and Catholic Protestantism" and praised the arch-heretic Martin Luther as the "Oecumenical Luther." Francis-Bergoglio's house newspaper, L’Osservatore Romano, officially published excerpts of the conference. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
True Catholics, what Francis-Bergoglio and his Newchurch are blind to is: what is the point of evangelization if there is nothing to evangelize? If there is no doctrine to teach? If there is no point to missionary work -- which Bergoglio has already condemned. If all religions are equal? Newchurch may as well wind up, close its doors, and give all its wealth to the poor. That should be what the Marxist Bergoglio does. Then we Catholics can get back to bringing back the true Catholic Faith and Church and carrying it out to a desperately-needy world.
Only in the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order. Only under the anti-Catholic Newpope. Newchurchers are now supposed to worship pagan deities. A new directive on Oecumenism and Interfaith Worship issued from the Newdiocese of Hallam in the United Kingdom prescribes that Newchurchers visiting temples are to worship the "gods" there:
The anti-Catholic Newchurch directive is expected to be used as a model for Newchurch dioceses around the world. In Catholicism, however, historians tell us that some 12,000,000 Christians in the early Church suffered martyrdom rather than put a pinch of incense in a thurible to worship the Roman emperor, choosing to suffer torture and the infamous Roman penalty of damnatio ad bestias, being turned over to wild beasts to be mauled to death, rather than to betray the true (Catholic) God.
True Catholics, Newchurch has itself clearly gone over to paganism, and is officially a pagan sect. It has officially turned its back on the First Commandment of God: "I am the Lord thy God; thou shalt not have strange [foreign] gods before me." Catholic moral theology teaches that a Catholic sins against faith by taking part in non-Catholic worship because he is thereby appearing to believe in a religion that he knows is false. Such a personal also commits the Sin of Idolatry when he worships a false god. Contrary to the teaching of the Bergoglian Newchurch, all gods are not the same, and we do not all worship the same god (the Heresty of Oecumenism).
On June 5, 2017, Francis-Bergoglio personally presided at the fiftieth anniversary of the Newchurch Charismatic Renewal in the Circus Maximus at Rome. Charismaticism is an outright heresy, which was introduced into Newchurch after the Vatican II Anti-Council in 1967. It is submerged in Syncretism, after Vatican II renamed Oecumenism to cover over the doctrinal stench. Syncretism/Oecumenism has been strongly condemned by Catholic popes, particularly Pope St. Pius X, as part of the Heresy of Modernism. As if to pile on the heresy, Bergoglio received Protestant ministers who were participating in the anti-Catholic affair.
Charismaticism is a particularly virulent modern-day mania infecting the Newchurch of the New Order, which has its roots deep in heresy. In the late 17th century, the beginnings of Charismaticism can already be seen as a derivative of the Protestant heresy. Philip Jakob Spener and his disciple, August Hermann Francke, from his vantage point at the new University of Halle, through over 6,000 graduates in Protestant theology, spread the ideas of "Pietism" throughout Germany. The Pietists specially emphasized emotional feeling rather than reason and cultivated "enthusiasm" in worship. Protestant Pietism is now rife in the Newchurch of the New Order, particularly in its Protestantized "New Mess."
The phenomenon caught on nationwide among Newchurchers who were searching for new ways of praying during the first flurry of the Vatican II Anti-council's revolution. Known initially as Newchurch Pentecostalism, the movement was renamed to reflect the various spiritual "gifts" (in Greek, charismata), purportedly given by the Holy Ghost to individuals. The movement is associated with such other cult-like, mind-controlling organizations and programmes as:
This Charismatic Movement is far from true Catholicism. It represents an almost complete abandonment of even nominally Catholic practices, beliefs, and modes of discourse. 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 "Charismatic Movement."
True Catholics, in 1974 Archbishop Robert Dwyer, of Portland, Oregon, warned: "We regard it [Charismaticism] bluntly as one of the most dangerous trends in the Church in our time, closely allied in spirit with other disruptive and divisive movements threatening grave harm to unity and damage to countless souls." Now in fact that heretical Charismaticism -- whose followers one author called "Chari-schismatics" -- has taken over the soul of Francis-Bergoglio's heretical New Order sect.
It is only natural that because of the Third Paedophile Newpope Francis-Bergoglio's cavalier attitude toward the sex crimes of his presbyter-ministers, Newbishops, and Newcardinals against children, the number of such crimes would increase. Bergoglio has failed in four years to appoint his promised Child Protection Commission, two of whose provisional members have resigned in protest against Bergoglio's inaction. Now the proof is in. Under Bergoglio paedophilia in Newchurch has skyrocketed.
On June 1, 2017, Newchurch's arm in the United States, the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops, was embarrassed to make public the results of its study of sex crimes amongst its Newclergy from July 1, 2015, to June 30, 2016. Two years after the election of the Third Paedophile Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio, Newchurch saw a sharp rise, not a decline, in sex crimes by Newchurch clergy.
911 new child victims came forward, charging presbyhter-ministers and Newbishops with sodomy, rape, and other sexual assaults. This was a 237 per cent increase over the previous year and the highest number since the previous peak of 1,093 child victims in 2004, the first year in which the USCCB made public the astonishing figures. And this number included only those crimes judged "credible" by the self-interested U.S. Newchurch. Only God knows how many other children were sodomized, raped, and otherwise sexually assaulted by the corrupt Newchurch clergy. Newchurch admitted that sex crimes were reported from every single one of the 196 Newdioceses in the United States, as well as four out of five Newchurch religious orders. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Boston Globe.]
True Catholics, Newchurch in the United States has already paid out almost 4,000,000,000 dollars in damages to children in the United States whom it has sodomized, raped, and otherwise sexually assaulted. Clearly, with the latest statistics, Francis-Bergoglio has been exposed as worse -- if that is possible -- that his two predecessor paedophile Newpopes, the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla and the "Ex-Nazi" Benedict-Ratzinger. That is why we TRADITIO Fathers have consistently pleaded with parents to turn their backs completely on Newchurch, together with its corrupt clergy and schools. Newchurch is truly harmful to their and their children's health -- spiritually, it goes without saying, but physically as well. At this point it is clear from Catholic moral teaching that any parent who associates with Newchurch is in a perpetual state of Mortal Sin.
It should be no surprise that the Superior General of the Newjesuits is an open heretic. After all, he hails from the same corrupted order from which the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio himself comes. But Newchurch has sunk to a new nadir when its official openly denies dogmatic teachings of the Catholic Church -- although we know that Newchurch hasn't been Catholic since its inception on November 21, 1964, when it replaced the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church.
Presbyter-minister Arturo Sosa, elected by the Newjesuits in 2016 to be their head, on May 31, 2017, proclaimed: "We have formed symbolic figures such as the Devil to express evil." In other words, the Devil is made up. This is a typical Modernist heresy: everything is symbolic, not real. Ironically, surveys show that more people believe in the existence of the Devil than of God! Sosa's statement is outright heresy. It is a dogma of the Church, confirmed at the dogmatic Council of Trent and at earlier councils, that the Adam's sin opens man to the power of the Devil; therefore, the Devil is not merely a "symbol," but a reality.
Traditionally, the priest, before administering the Sacrament of Baptism proper, exorcises the baptizand from Original Sin. This exorcism has been eliminated in the Protestantized Newchurch. Thus, as even Newchurch now admits, the Devil is now out of control in the Newchurch of the New Order. There aren't enough exorcists left to handle the consequences, as Newchurch in 1972 abolished the Holy Order of Exorcist.
True Catholics, it couldn't be any clearer that Francis-Bergoglio's (and Arturo Sosa's) Newchurch of the New Order is heretical and anti-Catholic and that no true Catholic can have anything to do with it under pain of association in heresy. No true Catholic can have anything to do with its phony Mess, its phony sacraments, its phony Newparishes, its phony unordained priest-ministers, its false doctrine, and its gutter morality,
The Bible records that St. Paul did not tolerate heresy from Peter when he preached Judaizing, contrary to the unanimous decree of the Council of Apostles, including Peter himself. Instead, St. Paul instead "opposed him [Peter] to his face because he stood condemned"(Galatians 2:11/RSVCE). Just so, U.S. President Donald Trump has had the courage, as few others have had, to "slap in the face" the Marxist Newpope. In doing so, Trump showed more guts than all the Neocon Newchurchers who rankle at the anti-Catholic Newpope, but won't lift a finger against him.
Francis-Bergoglio has turned his back on the Catholic Faith and instead uses his false position to meddle in secular affairs, like the weather. At their meeting on May 24, 2017, Bergoglio had the gall to give Trump as his official gift an autographed copy of his May 24, 2015, encyclical screed on the weather, bearing the pagan-tinged title Laudato si' - De Communi Domo Colenda [On Worshiping Our Common Home]. This was an obvious slap in the face to the U.S. President, who had campaigned against its politically-stained contents.
On June 1, 2017, Francis-Bergoglio trumpeted that if the U.S. President withdrew from the Paris climate deal, it would be viewed as "a huge slap in the face." Later that day, the President did in fact very publicly withdraw the United States from the Paris deal. Bergoglio was thus suitably slapped in the face -- just as he deserved to be for his middling in secular affairs. The American lion for a second time attacked the Marxist mouse -- and devoured him. In their first contretemps, regarding Bergoglio's statement against building walls to keep illegal invaders out, Trump pointed out Bergoglio's hypocrisy in that Newvatican has massive walls to protect it, and the very next day Bergoglio apologized to the U.S. President. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
True Catholics, the Marxist Newpope has met his match in the U.S. President. Francis-Bergoglio prattles on about political matters that are none of his business, whereas he never speaks from Catholic teaching about Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Saints, the Holy Angels, the true and valid Traditional Latin Mass and Sacraments, Catholic doctrine, or Catholic morality. That is why Providence has seen to it that Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order has lost the valid Catholic Mass, the valid Catholic Sacraments, and divine grace. That being the case, one need look no farther for the reason why fake anti-Catholic Newchurch is collapsing around Bergoglio's Marxist slippers.
On the plane back from Francis-Bergoglio's fake "con-anizations" at Fatima, Portugal, Francis-Bergoglio stated on May 13, 2017, that he was far from accepting Fellay and his Neo-SSPX into the Newchurch of the New Order. He was asked by a French correspondent whether Bernie Fellay and his sect would be accepted "in the short term." Bergoglio answered sharply that he completely rejected any form of "triumphalism," but indicated that Newchurch is in the process of taking control of Fellay's group and now has control of its ordinations, confessions, and marriages.
Francis-Bergoglio also pointed to the cases charging the Neo-SSPX with the cover-up of sex crimes against children by its priest-presbyters, now in the hands of Newchurch's Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith, which is considering the reduction of Neo-SSPX priest-presbyters to the lay state. Fellay has accepted the jurisdiction of this Novus Ordo body. Said, Bergoglio: "I don't want to rush things." On March 1, 2017, Bernie Fellay even admitted with embarrassment to his priest-presbyters that his Neo-SSPX sect's sellout to the New Order sect "had not progressed as far as some rumors would have us believe" and that there was "no imminent agreement."
On April 10, 2017, Fellay further admitted that in an audience on April 1, 2016, Francis-Bergoglio had told him: "You have problems, and therefore we must not rush. We must not create more divisions, and therefore we are taking our time." This statement apparently referred to the growing schism within the Neo-SSPX. In 2012 its senior bishop, Richard Williamson, abandoned the sect. In 2015 some 100 priest-presbyters and 12 traditional monasteries and convents also abandoned Fellay. These schisms have significantly grown in the ensuing year. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the French daily La Croix.]
True Catholics, what is now apparent is that Fellay's longed-for sellout of Archbishop Lefebvre's originally-traditional SSPX, now restructured into a Fellayite Neo-SSPX, to the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order and its Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio has reached another significant, perhaps permanent, breaking-point. The causes are (1) the charges made against Fellay and his priest-presbyters for paedophile crimes, which are now in the hands of Newchurch's Congregation, and (2) growing schism within the Neo-SSPX, which culminated in the May 11, 2017, Open Letter from Neo-SSPX's French priors and superiors to Newvatican rejecting Fellay and his attempted sellout. Fellay susequently fired the priors, and the congregation of thousands in St. Nicolas du Chardonnet outside Paris rioted against the Neo-SSPX District Superior of France.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, who is a radical Marxist of the most egregious sort, has now committed to sending 650,000,000 dollars of taxpayers' money to the underdeveloped countries to fund abortions there. Further, he has ruled that, from henceforth, nobody can stand as a candidate for the Liberal Party of Canada unless he swears in writing that he favors abortion up to the moment of live birth with no restrictions. Canada is the most evil country on the planet in this respect, for it funds abortion right up to birth for all causes, with no restrictions whatsoever.
After Trudeau's funding announcement, Newchurch archbishop Christian Lepine, of Montreal, blithely handed over to the self-excommunicated Trudeau the (invalid) Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid at a packed public (invalid) Novus Ordo Mess in Notre-Dame Newcathedral. When challenged on this, Lepine said that one must distinguish Trudeau the person from the ideas and beliefs of Trudeau. What on earth could that possibly mean? Lepine also said that giving Trudeau the cookie and Kool-Aid was done "as a sign of hope" that Trudeau would come to see the error of his ways! Such New Order schizophrenia would be hilarious, were the subject not so serious. Trudeau is less likely to "come around" than was Adolf Hitler or Josef Stalin. Francis-Bergoglio's New Order sect is now in complete chaos.
I note that Lepine, a so-called Neocon, that is, what passes for a Newchurch "conservative," has entirely failed to get that coveted red hat, which always used to go automatically to Montreal Newarchbishops. Francis-Bergoglio has been giving away the few available red hats to vicars apostolic in Laos and auxiliary bishops in El Salvador. There are no more red hats left for Lepine of Montreal, who no doubt hopes that by supporting the pro-abortionist Trudeau in public, Bergoglio, himself a pro-abortionist, who has called those who oppose abortion despicable "ideologues," will have some mercy on him. But Mr. Mercy gives obsolete scarlet slippers to red (that is, Marxist) Newbishops!
Any American who has watched live coverage of the U.S. House of Representatives on cable is aware that each session begins with a prayer offered by the House Chaplain, an official elected by the House. The current House Chaplain is a Newjesuit, Patrick Conroy, a descendant of the Newchurch order that preaches Marxist Liberation Theology: if you don't like your government, kill its leaders. The Newjesuits implemented this policy on various occasions in Latin America, boasting of having rifles for their deadly work. Newpope Francis-Bergoglio comes from the same Newjesuit background in Latin America. That fact goes a long way to explain why Bergoglio's false doctrines are so Marxist and anti-Catholic.
These "prayers" by the House chaplain are a travesty. They barely mention God, and then only for rhetorical effect. They never mention Jesus Christ as Lord. Most of the time they are thinly-veiled political commentary or pandering to the political goals of factions within the House.
Newjesuit Chaplain Conroy has now been caught on a video declaring that Catholic teaching against homosexual acts is a "dead end," "outdated" and "not keeping up with the times." He enthusiastically supports "gay" marriage. The teaching of Sacred Scripture, to the contrary, is that homosexual acts seriously contravene God's moral law and are, in fact, one of the Four Sins that Cry out to God for Retribution. But that doesn't matter to Newjesuit Conroy. He's an anti-Catholic, just like the Protestants and Secularists who deny that there is a Natural Law -- which even the founders of the American Republic preached in their Declaration of Independence. Natural Law does not change. Murder is murder whether it is done by Cain, by Barabbas, or by the Tsarnaev Brothers at the Boston Marathon in 2013.
Newjesuit Conroy is a Modernist/Subjectivist, just like his leader Francis-Bergoglio, who makes up false doctrine as he goes along, with no reference to God's word. Newchurch, Newpopes, and Newjesuits are all Modernist/Subjectivists, for whom there is no absolute right and wrong. That position is a declared doctrinal heresy known as Modernism, explicitly condemned by popes since Pius IX, and most particularly by Pope St. Pius X. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the LSN News Service.]
True Catholics, is it any wonder that there is a movement in the United States to abolish the offices of House Chaplain and Senate Chaplain? One has to pity those U.S. congressmen and senators, if there are any among them with true Faith, who have to listen daily to an anti-Catholic Newjesuit's pratlings that offend the chaplain offers these "prayers." Better to start the House sessions with the Pledge of Allegiance to the Flag and let it go at that.
On May 27, 2017, one of the long-living nuns in the world, Candida Bellotti, died in Lucca, Italy, at 110 years of age. In 1931, under Pope Pius XI, she entered the Congregation of the Ministers of the Sick (Ministeri Infirmaribus) of St. Camillus, whose members are known as the Camillians. St. Camillus de Lellis (1550-1614) selected a large red cross to distinguish the members of his order. It was from this Catholic congregation that the secular organization known as the International Red Cross took its emblem.
Sr. Candida was born on February 20, 1907, and was baptized in the (traditional) Roman Catholic Church. She served the congregation as a professional nurse. Candida lived under five (traditional) Roman Catholic popes: St. Pius X (1903-1914), Benedict XV (1914-1922), Pius XI (1922-1939), Pius XII (1939-1958), and John XXIII (1958-1963), until, on November 21, 1964, the Newchurch of the New Order replaced the Roman Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Zenit News Service.]
True Catholics, since 1964 the Newchurch of the New Order has wiped out or virtually wiped out every congregation of religious sisters and brothers, who in the past had been the world's most outstanding educators, nurses, and missionaries. Very few young men and women wish to serve a Newchurch that is not Catholic, one that denies doctrinal truth, moral precepts, and the call of Christ to teach and baptize all nations in the true, traditional Catholic Faith. The spurious and corrupt Newchurch is, therefore, rapidly dying before the eyes of the world.
The seven Neo-SSPX French Priors and three Superiors of Congregations who publicly broke with Bernie Fellay, the NSSPX Superior-Dictator, over Fellay's acceptance of Newchurch control over NSSPX marriages, have issued a May 11, 2017, Open Letter explaining their break. The letter contains these points against traditional Catholics having anything to do with Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order:
True Catholics, these ten courageous priests have called out the Newchurch Black Widow Francis-Bergoglio and his henchman Bernie Fellay in public for being anti-Catholic. Fellay cannot tolerate this action if he is not to become "damaged goods" in any sellout of his Neo-SSPX -- or what remains of it -- to the New Order sect and its Marxist Newpope. Therefore, Fellay has given the pastor of his largest church in France, St. Nicolas du Chardonnet, three days to clear out. It remains to be seen whether Fr. Patrick de la Rocque will knuckle under to Fellay's unending tyranny over traditional Catholic priests.
