A Reader Asks: "What Can an Isolated Traditional Catholic Do
Who Is, for the Most Part, without the True Mass and Sacraments?"

From: Jarvis
Traditional Catholic Family

What Is an Isolated Traditional Catholic Family to Do?
Remember that the Newchurch of the New Order Is Not the Catholic Church
Any More than the Protestant Church Is
No Pope Can Complete Correct This Condition
The Problem Is Not External; It Is Internal
The "Faithful" Have Become Unfaithful
Even if a Fully Traditional Latin Mass Site Is Remote
You Need to Make an Effort to Attend the True Mass
To Preserve Your Catholic Faith

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

What are your suggestions and advice for isolated traditional Catholics such as myself. I have a small number of traditional Catholic friends who are also confused about what to do about our salvation. We are, for the most part, without the true Mass and Sacraments. I realize that the true Church still has many believers who struggle to practice the true Catholic Faith.

The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.

Has the Church been infiltrated by Modernists? Absolutely. It was the life's work of Pope St. Pius X to rout these heretics out of the Church, and he did succeed for a time, but Pius XII started letting them back, and they took full control and established the Newchurch of the New Order at the Vatican II Anti-council in 1964 under the first Newpope, Paul VI-Montini, whom Newchurch is now going to make a Novus Ordo "Unsaint."

Remember that this Newchurch of the New Order is not the Catholic Church, any more than the Protestant Church is. No pope is going can completely correct this condition. The problem is not external; it is internal. The "faithful" have become unfaithful. It is the same condition that occurred after the Church came out of the catacombs in the early fourth century. In just fifty years, the pope of that time was chastising Catholics for losing their faith and becoming worse than the pagans.

Also be sure to check the Official Traditional Directory, referred to above, for sites in your region of which you may be unaware. Even the site is remote, you need to make an effort to attend the truly Traditional Latin Mass as many times a year as possible to preserve your Catholic Faith.


"New Latin Mess" Pastor at St. John Cantius Permanently Deposed
Removed from His Pastorate, from the Ministry, and Exiled for Cause

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
St. John Cantius

A "Traditional" Hoax -- St. John Cantius, Chicago, Illinois
A Newchurch Parish Known for Its New Latin Mess of 1962
But Also for Its (Invalid) Novus Ordo Service of 1969
And the New Latin Service of 1969 on an Equal Footing
Thus, the Mess Was Associated with the Corrupt Newchurch
Its Heresies and Its Immoralities
Now the Newpastor Has Been Deposed for Cause
Removed from the Ministry
And Exiled to an Undisclosed External Location
Neocon Newchurchers Sell out Catholic Morality for a Little Latin

Let us make it clear from the outset: St. John Cantius Newparish in Chicago, Illinois, which is known for performing the "New Latin Mess" of 1962, also simulates the (invalid) Novus Order Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service in a vulgar tongue. Its clergy are not Catholic priests; they are (invalid) Novus Ordo presbyter-ministers. Naturally, this Newparish is beloved of Neocon Newchurchers, who like a little Latin in their service, but can't distinguish the fully Traditional Latin Mass from the New Order fraud, nor distinguish a priest from an (invalid) Protestantized presbyter-minister.

Being part of the corrupt Newchurch of the New Order, the Newparish's pastor, presbyter Frank Phillips, not surprisingly, was accused of "improper conduct involving adult males." On June 20, 2018, the results of a review board by Phillips's own congregation was forwarded to the Newarchdiocese of Chicago. Although the review board concluded that Phillips did not violate any "secular criminal, civil or canon law," it did not state that he had not violated any of God's moral laws. Phillips was not "exonerated."

As a result of that review board's findings, the Newarchdiocese deposed Phillips as pastor and superior of the Canons Regular of St. John Cantius, which was responsible for the New Latin Mess there. It is likely that the whole Mess and associated services will shortly be shut down. Phillips himself has been suspended from the Novus Ordo ministry, ordered out of the Newparish, and exiled to an undisclosed external facility. Phillips' congregation publicly accepted his deposition and exile in a public letter of June 24, 2018.

True Catholics, the Neocon Newchurchers themselves are responsible for much of the moral corruption within their Novus Ordo sect because, like the immoral Newpopes whom they accept as their leaders, they try to cover up for their leaders' heresies and immoralities. Nothing involved with Newchurch can be trusted, no matter how beautiful the deceptive frosting may be. The corruption goes right to the core. Traditional Catholics are morally obliged to shun such corruption, at peril of their souls.

Bernie Fellay Is Stepping down as Neo-SSPX Superior-Dictator
Or after His 24-year Dictatorship, Is He Really?

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Bernie Fellay

Bernie Fellay, the Neo-SSPX's Superior-Dictator
Is at Last Stepping down from 24 Years over the Neo-SSPX
Or Is He?
He May Be Replaced by His First Assistant Niklaus Pfluger
Who Has Conspired with Fellay
To Transfer out Popular Anti-Newchurch Priests
And Appoint as Electors Those Who Support
Fellay and His Pro-Newchurch Stratagems
Or Fellay May Step up Again at the Last Moment

Bernie Fellay is -- at last -- stepping down at the July 11, 2018, General Chapter Meeting of the Neo-SSPX. At least he has stated that he does not want to stand for a 36-year term. His 24-year dictatorship as Superior General is unheard of in any truly Catholic order. In fact, he has used it to establish himself as an autocrat, from whom no appeal is ever possible.

The TRADITIO Network has, from the beginning of Fellay's regime, exposed to the world his malign motives and efforts to betray Archbishop Lefebvre, the founder of the original traditional Society of St. Pius X, by establishing his own Neo-SSPX that rejects the Archbishop's traditional Catholic principles and worked to sell out his Neo-SSPX to the Newchurch of the New Order and its infamous Newpopes, the JPII "The Unsaint" Woytla, Benedict "The Nazi" Ratzinger, and Francis "The Marxist" Bergoglio. In order to play the sycophant to the heretic Newchurch of the New Order, currently headed by the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, Fellay imported Novus Ordo presbyter-ministers into some Neo-SSPX sites, accepted virtually all of the Vatican II Anti-council, and allowed Newchurch to control his ordinations, confessions, and marriages.

Fellay has truly been a traitor to the great Archbishop, who called Newchurch, in no uncertain terms, "Modernist Rome," branding it with the Modernist heresy that was so vigorously put down by Pope St. Pius X (1903-1914), whom he chose as the Patron Saint of his original traditional Catholic society. The heresy of Modernism returned with a vengeance at the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) to preach openly that "all religions are equally true" and that "we all worship the same god."

Fellay's stepping down -- if he does not at the last moment step up again -- does not mean, however, that he will not be pulling his perfidious strings from behind the throne. The leading candidate to replace him is his own henchman, First Assistant Niklaus Pfluger, who has conspired with Fellay to transfer out popular anti-Newchurch priests and appoint as electors those who support Fellay and his pro-Newchurch stratagems.

True Catholics, just as a new Newpope will not bail out the Newchurch of the New Order, a new Superior-Dictator will not bail out the Neo-SSPX. The Neo-SSPX of today is not the Society of St. Pius X founded by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre any more that the Newchurch of the New Order, founded in 1964, is the Catholic Church. The SSPX has now been dead now for 24 years, and no rearranging of chairs at the top is going to fix it.

Newvatican Diplomat to Newpopes on Trial Admitted:
I Am a Child Pornographer

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Carlo Capella

Newmonsignor Carlo Capella, Nevatican Diplomat
Shown Here Costumed in His Novus Ordo Get-up
Confessed on the Stand at His Trial to Possessing and Distributing
Child Pornography while He Was Posted
At Newvatican's Nunciature in Washington, D.C.
He Also Operated in Canada, where He Was Arrested
The Perverted Newchurch Monsignor
Was Caught with at Least One Video
Showing a Child in an Explicit Sex Act with an Adult

Newvatican, Newpopes, and Newchurch are sinking fast. Shortly after Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick, of Washington, D.C., was outed as a sex criminal and suspended from all Newchurch functions on June 20, 2018, the next shoe has dropped. A Newvatican diplomat admitted in court on the stand that he is a child pornographer. On June 25, 2018, he was sentenced to five years in prison.

During his trial on June 22, 2018, Newmonsignor Carlo Capella, a Newvatican diplomat, shocked the court by confessing on the stand to charges of possession and distribution of child pornography while working at Newvatican's nunciature in Washington, D.C. On August 21, 2017, the U.S. State Department reported him to Newvatican for prosecution. Capella claimed that he didn't want to be assigned to Washington, so he took up collecting and distributing child pornography.

The Newmonsignor also traveled to Canada with his pornography collection and distribution list on his laptop. Canada issued a nationwide arrest warrant for Capella, who was apprehended and extradited to Newvatican for indictment and prosecution, where he has been in prison.

A forensic computer engineer stated at trial that he had inspected three cell phones, two USB drives, and several hard drives belong to Capella, where he found that the child pornography was being stored and distributed. The Newmonsignor was also storing the child pornography on the cloud. The images included at least one video showing a child depicted in an explicit sex act with an adult. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]

True Catholics, perversion has taken possession of Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch from presbyters right on up to the Newpopes who suborn and defend them. The perverts are obviously running the Newchurch asylum now, and the Newchurch "hierarchy" has done very little to stop it over the last fifty post Vatican II years. It is certainly long past time to throw out the Newchurch baby with the bathwater. There is now nothing Catholic left in the heretical, anti-Catholic Newchurch to save.

A Reader Asks: "Is It Permissible to Use the Basement
Of a Traditional Catholic Chapel for Secular Purposes?"

From: Lisa
Church Basement

It Is Permissible for the Basement of a Traditional Chapel
To Be Used for Suitable Secular Purposes
Even in the Sanctuary It is Permissible
To Hold a Suitable Non-liturgical Function
(If the Blessed Sacrament is Moved to an Altar of Reservation)
Such as a Concert of Vivaldi or Mozart Works

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

In the traditional Catholic chapel at which I attend Holy Mass, the basement of our chapel has been used for secular purposes, such as birthday parties, wedding, bazaars, and other social gatherings. Is such use permissible when the Blessed Sacrament is reserved above on the church altar?

The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.

Such an arrangement is permissible, as the activities are not taking place in the sanctuary or the nave of the church, but in a different room and even on a different floor. Even in the sanctuary it is permissible to hold a suitable non-liturgical function, if the Blessed Sacrament is moved to an altar of reservation, in cases where It is normally reserved on the altar.

A suitable function might be a concert of sacred, or at least not profane, music, such as a concert of Vivaldi or Mozart works. Often such buildings are acoustically superb, and such concerts edifying to the faithful.

Paedophile Newchurch Cardinal Suspended from All Newchurch Functions
United States's McCarrick Also Sodomized Newseminarians

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Theodore McCarrick

Newcardinal McCarrick Has Been Given His Walking Papers
Outed as a Paedophile Who Also Sodomized
Newseminarians at His Beach Home
McCarrick Has Been Suspended from All Newchurch Functions
Many in Newchurch Knew of His Sex Crimes, but Didn't Speak up
McCarrick Publicly Worshipped Allah
And Was Well Know to Be in the Pocket of Leftist Politicians in the U.S.
Like the Notorious Bigamist, Philanderer, and Pro-Abortion Senator Kennedy

Newchurch's continuing Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust has netted yet another Newcardinal, Theodore McCarrick, Archbishop of Washington, D.C. This was the Newchurch "nut case" who prayed publicly to Allah at the once-Catholic Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. After the publicized results of investigation revealed that McCarrick had assaulted not only a child but also numerous Newseminarians and young presbyters under his charge, the Third Paedophile Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio, had no choice but to suspend him from all Newchurch functions on June 20, 2018.

After a review board found McCarrick guilty as sin, he was suspended from simulating the (invalid) New Mess and phony New Order sacraments and from representing Newchurch in any way. Now that McCarrick has fallen from grace, the cowardly Newchurch officials who knew about his crimes at the time are now singing like canaries. While Newbishop of Metuchen, New Jersey, He "invited" Newchurch seminarians to his beach home and sodomized them as "Uncle Ted." The paedophile McCarrick was elected by the Newchurch bishops of the United States as their head in 2004 -- "the paedophile leading the paedophiles."

It has also come out that Newrome, at that time operating under the First paedophile Newpope, the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla, was notified that McCarrick was a paedophile before Wojtyla appointed McCarrick as Newarchbishop of Washington, D.C. In 1998, a delegation of prominent Newchurch laymen, and a presbyter, traveled to Newrome hoping to block McCarrick’s appointment because of his sexual assaults. The Second Paedophile Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger, apparently knew McCarrick's dirty secret as well, and let him retire earlier with no comment on his perversions.

As President of the U.S. Newbishops, McCarrick ignored a document from Newrome that prevented politicians who were members of Newchurch to receive the (invalid) Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid, failing to inform the Newbishops of the United States of its contents. McCarrick was well known to be in the pocket of Leftist politicians in the United States like the notorious bigamist, philanderer, and pro-abortion Senator Ted Kennedy. McCarrick violated Newrome's instructions and continued to give the Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid to the notorious Kennedy, who claimed to be a Newchurcher to gain him votes in once-Catholic Boston, Massachusetts, at whose funeral he delivered a eulogy. In 2006 McCarrick announced that he supported "gay marriage," but when a firestorm of opposition from Newchurchers ensued, he backed down.

True Catholics, you have to be a BIG sinner before the corrupt Newchurch will throw you out. Newcardinal McCarrick is one of the worst, not only a paedophile and a sodomite but also an Islamophile heretic. Another Newcardinal is now facing the music in Australia, George Pell, whom Francis-Bergoglio appointed as his Chief Financial Officer of his Newvatican. True Catholics cannot help but hear ringing in their ears the words of Our Lord condemning the leaders of the Church of His day: "Domus mea domus orationis est, vos autem fecistis illam speluncam latrum (Luke 19:46/V). The leaders of the Newchurch of the New Order likewise in our time are nothing more than "a den of thieves." And no true Catholic can have anything to do with them, their phony Mess and sacraments, their heretical doctrines, their heretical Marxist Newpope, and their despicable morals.


Francis-Bergoglio Now Feigns that He Never Received
From the Four Newcardinals the Dubia about His Heresies on Marriage

From: Petrus Romanus, the TRADITIO Network's International Corresondent

Francis-Bergoglio Now Feigns Surprise
After Two Years of Constant International Press Coverage
He Now Claims that He Never Received the Dubia (Theological Issues)
Of the Four Newcardinals Who Questioned His Heresies on Marriage
Just as He Claimed that He Never Received the Five-page Letter
From the Chilean Boy Assaulted by the Newbishop
Whom Bergoglio Himself Had Appointed
Knowing that He Was a Paedophile
What Liars These Newpopes Be!

First, it was a five-page handwritten letter by a child victim outlining sexual crimes perpetrated against him by a paedophile Chilean Newbishop appointed by Francis-Bergoglio. This letter was personally delivered, as publicly acknowledged by Newcardinal Sean O'Malley, into the hands of Francis-Bergoglio. Now it's the four Newcardinals' dubia (theological issues), demanding a correction of Bergoglio's heretical statements about marriage in his March 19, 2017, document Amoris laetitia (The Joy of Sex). Although the dubia were hand-delivered to Bergoglio on September 19, 2016, he denied on June 18, 2018, after two years of constant international press coverage, that he ever got them!

To take a leaf from Shakespeare, what liars these Newpopes be! The dubia had been hand-delivered two years ago by Newcardinal Carlo Caffara, one of the four, with a copy to Newcardinal Gerhard Mueller, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the {New Order] Faith, on the same day. Like former U.S. President Barack Obama, who constantly lied that he had heard about acts of corruption in his own government only when he "read it in the newspapers," Bergoglio now claims the same. Again, what liars these Newpopes be!

In a Rejection of Francis-Bergoglio's "Pansy Policy"
Austria Will Shut down Mosques and Expel Imams

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Sebastian Kurz

Austria's New Conservative Chancellor, Sebastian Kurz
Has Signed a Bill that Shuts down Mosques and Expels Imams
Several European Heads of State Have Followed
Francis-Bergoglio's "Pansy Policy"
Which Allows Hordes of Mohammedan Infidels to Be Admitted
Into Christian Europe with Impunity
That Policy Has Significantly Increased Crimes in Those Countries
Now Europeans Are Tired of Having Their Cities and Christian Culture
Overwhelmed by Infidels, Many of Them Terrorist or Terrorist-leaning

Francis-Bergoglio, who pontificates in safety behind the massive walls built in the third century by his predecessor, the Roman Emperor Aurelian, has for his five years as Newpope been pandering his "Pansy Policy, his notion that Christian Europe should admit, without reserve, new hordes of Mohammedan Infidels. Several European heads of state have done so, to a notable increase in crimes by the Infidels against the citizens of those countries. Bergoglio and those European leaders learned nothing from the Mohammedan takeover of Spain in the eight century, which was routed only in 1492 in the Christian Reconquista by King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella of Aragon.

But now the tide is shifting against Francis-Bergoglio and his "Pansy Policy," which toothlessly lets the Infidels into Christian Europe with impunity. His primary partner in crime, Angela Merkel, who was an East German Communist before she "reinvented" herself, is now fighting for her political life, as 60 per cent of Germany rejects her Mohammedan-friendly policy, and she has lost her governing coalition in the Bundestag.

The new conservative Chancellor of Austria, Sebastian Kurz, on June 8, 2018, announced that mosques and imams associated with radical Islam will be shut down. Already in 2015 Austria had passed a low that banns foreign funding of religious groups, which would also seem to include funding by Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio's foreign Newchurch headquartered in Newrome. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]

True Catholics, it seems that the time of the Marxists, like Francis-Bergoglio, is running out. Europeans are tired of having their cities and Christian culture overwhelmed by Infidels, many of them terrorist or terrorist-leaning. Who can forget the coordinated rapes perpetrated by hundreds of Mohammedans against German women on New Year's Day 2016. These rapes occurred in the plaza in front of Cologne's Cathedral, where precious relics of the Three Magi reside. Now the Christians are fighting back -- finally -- against the Marxist Bergoglio and against their Mohammedan-friendly governments.

Is Bernie Fellay Planning a Trap
At the July 2018 Neo-SSPX Sexennial Chapter Meeting?

Neo-SSPX Schism of 2012

In the Neo-SSPX Schism of 2012
Over 100 Neo-SSPX Priest-presbyters Walked out on Bernie Fellay
If at the July 2018 Neo-SSPX Chapter Meeting
Fellay Connives a Sellout to the Newchurch of the New Order
And to Its Heretic Newpope Francis-Bergoglio
The Neo-SSPX May Face Yet Another Schism within Its Ranks
To Exceed the 2012 Exodus
From Which Fellay and His Neo-SSPX Is Still Far from Recovering

In July 2018 the Neo-SSPX will hold its sexennial chapter meeting for the election of a Superior-dictator for the next twelve years and to conduct other business. Such a term is completely untraditional and is at serious variance from the tradition in such orders as the Benedictines, Dominicans, and Franciscans. Fellay has not yet made clear whether he intends to run to serve for an unprecedented 36 years. He seems to be bucking for the record of the greatest of the Roman Emperors, Augustus, who reigned for 41 years. But Augustus claimed to be the son of a god; Fellay hasn't yet claimed that honor!

Whether or not Fellay runs for re-re-election, my sources indicate that Fellay and his henchmen are preparing the Neo-SSPX for the Personal Prelature trap in order to bring the Neo-SSPX under the feigned authority of the Newchurch of the New Order and its heretic Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio. But there are also signs that several chapter flies will resist the Bernardian Black Widow's trap.

Who knows? Maybe instead of a sellout to Newchurch, the Neo-SSPX will face yet another schism within its ranks to exceed the 2012 Exodus, which started with the departure of the Neo-SSPX's highly-regarded Senior Bishop, Richard Williamson, and the formation of The Traditional Resistance by the Vienna Five. In that schism, one out of every six Neo-SSPX priest-presbyters, numbering over 100, walked out on Fellay and set up independent traditional Catholic Mass sites around the world or joined The Traditional Resistance. Fellay and his Neo-SSPX are still far from recovering from the 2012 Exodus.

Bishop Sheen's Body Is Still Up for Grabs
Newcardinal Dolan and Newbishop Jensky Both Want It for Fund-raising

Calvary Cemetery

Bishop Fulton Sheen's Last Will and Testament Was Clear
He Wanted to Be Buried in Traditional Calvary Cemetery in New York

Wants to Steal the Body
To Use It for Newchurch Fundraising in New York

Wants to Steal the Body
To Use It for Newchurch Fundraising in Peooria
Sheen Must Now Be Damning These Newchurch Grave Robbers
Together with Their Fraudulent Newchurch of the New Order
Which He Started Rejecting in the Last Years of His Life

Newchurch just can't leave Bishop Sheen (1895-1975) in peace. Sheen was the United States' best known Catholic orator, seen on radio and television by millions from 1930 to 1968. An all-out Newchurch fiasco has broken out between two Newbishops, Timothy "Laughing Cow" Dolan, Newarchbishop of New York, where Sheen spent most of his working life, and Daniel Jensky, Newbishop of Peoria, Illinois, where Sheen was ordained and initially served as a priest.

Both Newbishops want the body to use in fundraising for their corrupt Newchurch causes. Jensky also wants Sheen's body to be dissected in preparation for making him a Newchurch "Unsaint" -- a condition that Sheen himself would probably have hated, as he was more and more rejecting Newchurch and the Vatican II Anti-council in his later years.

Sheen had made it clear in his Last Will & Testament what he wanted: to be buried quietly in the traditional Calvary Cemetery in Queens, New York. He lived in New York City or State from 1951 until his death in 1979. But Sheen's instructions make no difference to these Newchurch grave robbers. On June 8, 2018, a New York court sided with Jensky. So, a week later, Dolan is appealing once again. Sheen's body is just too valuable for Newchurch fundraising, so Dolan doesn't want to give it up. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, beware! This is the kind of thing that can happen to you if you put your body in the hands of Newchurch. Be sure that your Last Will & Testament, with funeral instructions, is ironclad. Otherwise, you will have a vile open-casket, Novus Ordo, white funeral and be burnt to a crisp in the manner of the pagans whom Newchurch apes. 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 "Cremation and Traditional Funeral Instructions."

True Catholics, now we know that high Newchurch officials are not only paedophiles but also ghoulish grave robbers. Newchurch is so consumed with corruption that it doesn't care what the deceased's own will provides. Newchurch always thinks that it knows better -- except in this case when even two Newbishops can't agree and are conducting open warfare against each other. Ironically, Newchurch claims that it is so charitable while the (traditional) Catholic Church is not. Give us a break!

Newvatican Statistics Show the "Francis Effect" Is Negative
Newvatican Declares a "Crisis in Vocations" to Newchurch Worldwide

Who Do Not Recognize Newchurch as Catholic

As U.S. President Donald Trump would put it, the fabled "Francis Effect" was fake news. Francis-Bergoglio had no positive effect upon Newchurch worldwide, in fact, just the opposite. On June 13, 2018, Newvatican issued its Annuarium Statisticum Ecclesiae, whose statistics show that in Bergoglio's short Newpontificate, the number of Newseminarians attracted to Newchurch has been falling about one per cent per year, to 3.3 per cent over the period 2012-2016.

Newvatican has now declared a "crisis in vocations." It was known before that Europe, once the center of Catholicism, has been turning its back on the Newchurch of the New Order. But the surprise in this report is that the United States, once a loyal son of Catholicism, is sinking fast. Even more surprising is the fact that Latin American youth are deserting Newchurch at record rates. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Catholic Herald.

True Catholics, Newvatican's own report further shows that the steep decline in vocations (if that is the correct word any longer) to Newchurch hit a maximum in the year before Francis-Bergoglio was elected and has fallen precipitously thereafter. Bergoglio's heresies, Marxism, homophilia, and paedophilia are repelling young men. Thus, the rapid demise of the Newchurch of the New Order, imposed at the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), has brought not the "springtime" spoken of in Newchurch propaganda, but instead a bitterly-cold "winter of discontent."

It seems that Francis-Bergoglio is determined to prove the TRADITIO Network correct when it calls him a Marxist heretic. On June 14, 2018, Bergoglio declared an overt Marxist to be a Novus Ordo Beatus (Blessed) and a Novus Ordo "martyr." Accordingly, the invalid Novus Ordo Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service may now be performed upon the fake Novus Ordo "eucharistic dinner tables" imploring the "intercession" of Newbishop Enrique Angelelli (1923-1976), of Argentina.

What do we know about Angelelli? First of all, he was no martyr. He did not die defending the Catholic Faith or even the New Order sect. He died in an automobile accident, as attested to by three witnesses, a forensic pathologist, and an Argentinian inquest court.

In fact, Angelelli was a leading political Leftist who brought Marxism to Newchurch in Argentina. He supported the lethal Liberation Theology, which murdered conservative public officials. Angelelli's plan was to infiltrate and subvert Newchurch further into the Marxist camp. In 1965 his Newarchbishop relieved him of his duties for involvement in condemned Marxist causes.

True Catholics, remember that because Newchurch is not the Catholic Church and does not have a Catholic canonization process (it was Protestantized in 1983 by the Unsaint JPII-Wojytla), Angelelli is no more "blessed" than the Arch-heretic Martin Luther, the heretic Martin Luther King, or the assassinated homosexual Leftist politician Harvey Milk -- all of whom have been "canonized" by Protestant sects. Francis-Bergoglio is trying to establish a Novus Ordo Pantheon of Marxist Unsaints. That the Newchurchers stay with this heretic and his Newchurch is at their own responsibility and the peril of their own souls. They cannot plead ignorance. The evidence is now too public that Newchurch is being run by both a Gay Lobby and a Coven of Marxists.

U.S. Catholic [Sic] Pseudo-bishops Threaten
To "Excommunicate" Law-enforcement Officers Obeying the Natural Law

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
U.S. Catholic [Sic] Bishops

Mea Culpa, Mea Culpa, Mea Maxima Culpa
The U.S. Catholic [Sic] Bishops Took Time Out
From Lying about on the Beaches of Fort Lauderdale, Florida
To Threaten Sworn Law-enforcement Officers
With Excommunication from Their Fake New Order Sect
For Enforcing the Natural Law of Nations
So Cogently Explicated by the Catholic Church's
Universal Doctor, St. Thomas Aquinas
In Fact, the Newchurch Bishops Have Excommunicated Themselves
From the True Church, the (Roman) Catholic Church

Newchurch's senseless threats to "excommunicate" traditional Catholics have now extended to U.S. government border patrol officers, who are lawfully trying to prevent criminal aliens, several of them from the murderous MS-13 Gang, from crossing the border illegally. Practically every country in the world does so in accordance with God's Natural Law of nations, so cogently explicated by the Catholic Church's Universal Doctor, St. Thomas Aquinas.

So, why is Newchurch trying to single out the United States and its conservative President? Perhaps this is the very reason: that the U.S. President is conservative, a publicly-avowed and practicing Christian, who openly advocates Christianity and Christian values. The head of Newchurch, on the other hand, is an avowed Marxist, who hates true Catholicism, and even Christianity, but encourages widespread lawlessness that has brought European governments to the brink of collapse with the uncontrolled influx of Mohammedan Infidels.

The U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops opened its spring meeting on June 13, 2018, while those pseudo-bishops took time out from lying about on the beaches of Fort Lauderdale, Florida, to threaten sworn U.S. border officers with "canonical penalties" like "excommunication." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Religious News Service.]

True Catholics, ironically, in 1983, Newchurch of the New Order rejected Catholic Canon Law and substituted a new code based on heretical Protestant concepts. In any case, true Catholics are prohibited from having "communion" with the heretical Newchurch. So, traditional (true) Catholics voluntary "excommunicate" themselves from the New Order sect. On the other hand, the Newchurch bishops adhere to heretical doctrine, immoral practices, and an unCatholic/unApostolic "liturgy," so they have excommunicated themselves from the true Church, the (Roman) Catholic Church.

Communist China Destroys the Shrine of Our Lady of Mount Carmel
In Association with the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Henan Via Crucis

Chinese Newchurchers Look in Vain for the Via Crucis
Leading to Hunan Province's Shrine of Our Lady of Mount Carmel
On June 5, 2018, the Communist Chinese Government
Destroyed the Shrine and the Via Crucis
In Association with the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio
Who Is Selling out His Newchurch in China to It
Ironically, Communist China Is Complying with the Vatican II Anti-council
Which Rejected the Universality of Rome
And Forced Each Country to Use Its Own Vulgar Tongue and Local Rituals
In the New Order Service, just as the Heretic Protestants Do

The atheist Chinese government is intensifying its crackdown on the practice of religion, even as Francis-Bergoglio wants to capitulate to the Communists. On June 5, 2018, President Xi Jinping demolished the sanctuary of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, a pilgrimage site since its founding in 1903. Also demolished were the images of Christ along the Via Crucis.

The Communists were afraid that there would be large crowds at the shine on the feastday of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, July 16. Already in 1987, the Communist government had outlawed any religious gathering of more than 300 people. The area of the shrine, Henan Province, is home to the second-largest Christian population in the country. The province's Communist Party Secretary has already suppressed eight of the ten Newdioceses in the province, as well as the Newchurch-run kindergartens there. The Communist Party is making an example of the shrine to suppress religion. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Britbart.]

True Catholics, ironically, Communist China is complying with the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) in advancing the "sinicization" of religion in China. Vatican II rejected the universality of Rome and instead forced each country to use its own vulgar tongue and local rituals in the New Order service, just as the Protestant heretics do. No wonder Francis-Bergoglio is capitulating to the Marxist atheists. After all, he's one of them and a full-throated supporter of the anti-Catholic Anti-council!

Francis-Bergoglio Allows Paedophile Newbishop to Resign
Juan Barros Escaped without Censure from the Second Paedophile Newpope

From: Petrus Romanus, the TRADITIO Network's International Correspondent
Juan Barros

When the Paedophile Whom Francis-Bergoglio Appointed
As Newbishop of Osorno, Chile, Was Installed
His Own People Attacked Him and Interrupted the Installation
Screaming Obscenities at Him and Hurling Dung at Him
Bergoglio Was Warned by the 26 Chilean Newbishops
That Barros Was a Paedophile, but Bergoglio Appointed Him Anyway
Now that Bergoglio Has Been Called out as a Liar and Paedophile Accomplice
Barros Has Been Allowed to Resign without Censure for His Depravity

On June 11, 2018, Juan Barros, the paedophile Newbishop of Osorno, Chile, was not fired, but was allowed to resign without censure by Francis-Bergoglio. The 26 Chilean Newbishops had warned Bergoglio about Barros, and Bergoglio promised not to make him a Newbishop. Yet a year later, in 2015, Bergoglio nevertheless appointed him, then lied that he had never been warned. When the Associated Press later found a letter from Bergoglio acknowledging the warning and promising not to appoint the paedophile, Bergoglio was exposed to the world as a liar. In May 2018, as a cover-up of his own responsibility, Bergoglio tried to make the innocent Chilean bishops take the fall for the incident and forced their resignations.

Almost as important, Bergoglio removed two Chilean Newarchbishops, those of Valparaiso and Puerto Montt. They were forceably retired at the age of 75, whereas Newarchbishops normally stay on to 77 or 78. Valparaiso is an especially important see in Chile. It has about one million subjects and ranks as the second most-populous of the 26 Chilean Newdioceses. Bergoglio is apparently paying back the Chilean Newbishops for forcing him, finally, to take back Barros. One wonders what will happen to Barrios next. Will he be assigned to the Newvatican, where he's protected from civil law that would imprison him or force him to pay damages to the child victims involved? Will Bergoglio give him a diplomatic passport, as he has given other paedophile Newbishops?

Days before the exit of Barros, Bergoglio removed his old archrival, Hector Ruben Aguer, the Newarchbishop of La Plata, Argentina. Bergoglio excised Aguer just nine days after the man had turned 75, a clear insult to him. Then Bergoglio compounded the insult by refusing to allow Aguer to stay on as Apostolic Administrator until Bergoglio's pal, Victor Emmanuel Fernandez (who is one of the most extreme of all the Marxists in Bergoglio's Communist closet of friends) takes over. The standard practice is to allow the former Newprelate to rule on as Apostolic Administrator if his health be good, which Aguer's is.

In the first eleven days of June 2018, Bergoglio has appointed four new Newbishops and five new auxiliary Newbishops. He has also removed three under-aged Newbishops and retired four others. The under-aged Newbishops removed include Luis Madrid Merlano, Archbishop of Nueva Pamplona, in Colombia. He was only 71. Bergoglio has also appointed special Apostolic Administrators here, there, and everywhere, four of them. These temporary Newprelates are not as young, however, as those appointed by the Borgia "Bad Pope," Alexander VI or by his successors, the corrupt Julius II and Leo X. But exceeding that lowest of standards sure isn't saying much for Bergoglio!

Bergoglio continues to move fast to remove the remaining Newbishops who were installed by the First Paedophile Newpope, "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla and a few appointed by the Second Paedophile Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger. The Wojtylans are being targeted for removal and are being cast into the outer darkness in Newchurch, where they must live out their lives to watch their Protestant Newchurch baby be converted to out-and-out paganism and Marxism.

Pennsylvania Attorney General Blows the Lid off Newchurch Lies
Detailed Report Documents a Criminal Newchurch out of Control

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Francis-Bergoglio Shrugs off the Rampant Paedophilia
That He Suborns in His Newchurch of the New Order
But Now the Biggest and Most Extensive Report
On Newchurch's Criminal Activities Is to Be Released
By the Attorney General of Pennsylvania
Which Has Been Hard Hit by Corrupt Newchurch Bishops and Presbyters
The Report, Unredacted by Newchurch, Reveals that Sex Crimes
In Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch Are Widespread and out of Control
And that Newchurch Continues to Hide and Protect Criminal Newchurch Clergy

The Pennsylvania Attorney General has announced that he will release by the end of June 2018 the results of an exhaustive two-year investigation into the paedophile crimes committed by Francis-Bergoglio's Newbishops and presbyters in that State.

1,700,000 Newchurchers in Pennsylvania are entangled in their criminal Newclery's crimes. The report will blow the lid off Newchurch's lie, and Francis-Bergoglio's own false propaganda, that Newchurch's great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust is under control. The report reveals that sex crimes are widespread and out of control in Newchurch and that Newchurch continues to hide and protect criminal Newbishops and presbyters. Many thousands of child victims sexually assaulted under horrible circumstances are involved. A Philadelphia judge has ordered the release of the Attorney General's full report, unredacted by Newchurch.

The State investigation has interviewed dozens of witnesses, including the child victims themselves, and reviewed over 500,000 pages of internal documents from Newdiocesan archives that the court ordered opened over the strenuous objection of Newchurch officials. Those familiar with Newchurch's paedophile crimes state that the report will exposed the filthy underside of Newchurch in a way that has not been documented to this extent before.

The report will show that Newchurch continues to shuffle paedophile presbyters from Newdiocese to Newdiocese to escape justice. One case showed that a Newchurch presbyter sodomized an "altar boy" (as if Newchurch still had any altars; since 1969 Newchurch itself calls these Protestantized "dinner tables") no fewer than twenty times. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]

True Catholics, the ugly secret is coming out fully into the revealing sunlight of truth. Francis-Bergoglio and his predecessor Newpopes were criminal facilitators of the most vile crimes against the children whom they were supposed to be protecting. The now-undeniable truth of the matter has now overcome Bergoglio's huge propaganda machine, and the Newpope can no longer hide behind a tissue of lies generated by his expensive Newvatican propaganda machine. Our prediction is that Bergoglio will out cast out in ignominy within two years.

Since 1994, Now for Its 29,000,000th Reader
The TRADITIO Network Appeared on the World Wide Web even Before the Newvatican's Site
And Has Remained the First Site for Traditional Roman Catholics

On June 9, 2018, the Feast of the Most Sacred Heart of Jesus, in the 24th year of its apostolate on the internet, the TRADITIO Network logged its 29,000,000th reader. TRADITIO was the first traditional Roman Catholic site to appear on the World Wide Web and was founded on the Feastday of St. Michael the Archangel, September 29, 1994. We were here even before Newvatican was, even before Amazon.com was!

We thank the Lord for our over 29,000,000 readers over these years and for our hundreds of dedicated correspondents from all over the world, who keep us current on everything going on in the bowels of Newvatican, in the inner sancta of various traditional organizations, and at Traditional Latin Mass sites around the world. TRADITIO has been the longest-existing and most read traditional Roman Catholic web site on the World Wide Web.

In their Daily Commentaries, the TRADITIO Fathers do not just copy news reports or the uninformed notions of johnny-come-lately "bloggers" in secular and religious publications, who in fact have very little background or understanding of the Traditional Catholic Movement. Nor is TRADITIO Network enslaved to any particular organization's viewpoint. Instead, the TRADITIO Network provides the hard-hitting, independent analysis and perspective of over half a century of Roman Catholic experience, even from before Vatican II.

The TRADITIO Network is avidly read within the highest bowels of at Newrome and Menzingen (Neo-SSPX). In addition to the Daily Commentaries from the Fathers, including lively commentary on Church news from the traditional perspective, TRADITIO's other fifteen departments provide resources and materials for its readers to study and learn about the traditional Roman Catholic Faith.

We are particularly touched by the many thousands of messages that we have received from Newchurchers of the New Order, including Neocon Newchurchers, who tell us that they have been converted to the traditional Roman Catholic Faith because of TRADITIO's uncompromising, independent commentaries and materials. The TRADITIO Network is one of many means through which Our Lord appears be working out the Traditional Catholic Restoration of the 21st century.

Trappist Cistercian Abbey in Quebec Is Transmogrified
Into a Harry Potter Theme Park, Which Will Teach Sorcery

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Notre-Dame du Lac

At One Time the Monastery of Our Lady of the Lake
Burgeoned with Some 200 Trappists
Who Chanted the Traditional Latin Divine Office
And Sang the Traditional Latin Mass
Now the Choir Stalls Are Empty and Silent
As Newchurch Has Sold off the Monastery
To Pay Damages to the Victims of Its Paedophile Crimes
The Sacred Monastery Will Now Become
A Harry Potter Theme Park
Teaching Sorcery to Visitors for a Fee of 80 USD

The Newchurch of the New Order is in the process of deliberately destroying the patrimony of the Roman Catholic Church around the world, which, if Newchurch were the Catholic Church, it would be bound by oath to preserve. However, because Newchurch is not the Catholic Church, it has desecrated beautiful traditional Catholic churches, monasteries, convents, and other sacred buildings to profane uses: as hotels, bars, beer joints, even houses of prostitution in Rome, etc.

The latest example is the conversion of the Trappist Cistercian Abbey of Notre-Dame du Lac in Oka, Quebec, into a Harry Potter theme park. Ironically, the Cistercians were founded out of the Benedictines to be an order of stricter observance of the Rule of St. Benedict. The monastery stands on a property of 2,700,000 square metres and numbers twelve buildings. The property was supposed to be donated to establish an educational complex to preserve the site's heritage, but Newchurch squelched that deal, instead selling it for profane purposes.

Under the traditional Catholic Church, the monastery used to house some 200 monks, who chanted the traditional Latin Divine Office (not the fake Novus Ordo "Liturgy of the Hours"), sang the traditional Catholic Holy Sacrifice of the Mass (not the invalid Novus Ordo Protestantized service), and performed manual labor according to the Benedictine order's motto, "Ora et labora."

But since Newchurch took it over, the abbey has been emptied, and the vacant building is going to be turned over on August 4, 2018, to worship of a sorcerer, Harry Potter, who stars in J.K. Rowling's fantasy series. Visitors will now pay 80 USD to learn sorcery. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Le Journal de Montréal.]

True Catholics, the immoral Newchurch of the New Order, being neither Roman nor Catholic, governed by a sty of Modernists and Marxists, will now sell any traditional sacred property to the highest pagan bidder. You see, Newchurch is burdened by damage judgments against its Newdioceses and Newclergy for paedophile crimes to the tune of billions of dollars. Newchurch desperately needs money to assist itself and its leader, Francis-Bergoglio, who is accelerating the destruction of Roman civilization and Roman Catholicism, which he hates as a good Marxist-Protestant.

Newcardinal Dolan Loses Bishop Sheen's Body
Newbishop Jensky Also Violated Sheen's Last Will and Testament

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Bishop Fulton Sheen's Funeral

Bishop Fulton Sheen, Well-Known Radio and Television Host
In 1979 Received a Full-blown Novus Ordo "White" Funeral
In Front of the Novus Ordo "Dinner Table"
That He Had Come to Regret at the End of His Life
He Directed in His Last Will and Testament
That His Body Be Buried in Calvary Cemetery, Queens, New York
But Newcardinals Cooke and Dolan Stole His Body
To Make It a Money-making Tourist Attraction in New York
While Newbishop Jensky Wanted the Body Shipped to Peoria, Illinois
Where Sheen Was Ordained and Initially Served as a Priest
The Grave Robbers in This "Sad Saga of the Peripatetic Corpse"
Are Newchurch Cardinals, A Newchurch Bishop, and a New York Court
Not a One Had the Piety to Do What Sheen Himself Wanted

It seems that in these sinful times, a man's last will and testament means nothing. Bishop Sheen, the well-known radio and television host of religious programs from 1930 to 1968, directed in his will that he be buried "in Calvary Cemetery" in Queens, New York.

Nevertheless, Terence Cooke, the Newcardinal of New York at the time of Sheen's death in 1979, stole the body in order that it could be entombed in the newly-remodeled St. Patrick's Newcathedral in Manhattan to become a tourist attraction there to raise money for Newchurch. Newbishop Daniel Jensky has been equally impious in attempting to have Sheen's body returned to Peoria, Illinois, where Sheen initially worked as a priest, in order that it could raise money for Newchurch there.

Cooke's successor, Timothy "Laughing Cow" Dolan, has mercilessly clung to Sheen's body and fought in court to keep it, against Sheen's will. On June 8, 2018, a New York court, also participating in the impiety, directed that the body be returned to Peoria. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

True Catholics, the grave robbers in this sad saga are Newchurch cardinals, a Newchurch bishop, and a New York court. Not a one of them had the piety to do what Sheen had directed: that he be buried and left in peace in Calvary Cemetery in Queens, New York. Now the once-traditional Catholic who embraced the Protestantized Newchurch in 1964, but lived to regret it, will be dissected and dishonored in death in the polluted hands of Newchurch paedophiles.

Francis-Bergoglio Praises Founder of Murderous Philosophy
Liberation Theology Took over the Jesuits and Led Them to Violence

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Malachi Martin's 'Jesuits'

Malachi Martin, Noted Author, Vaticanologist, and Former Jesuit
Wrote His 1988 Blockbuster on the Once-Catholic Order Gone Sour
He Exposed the "Liberation Theology" that the Newjesuits Embraced
As the Communist Plot that Soviet Officials Later Revealed It Was
Newjesuit "Priests" Took up Arms and Tried to Assassinate
Conservative Officials of Latin American Governments
Now Francis-Bergoglio, Himself a Marxist and Newjesuit
Has Praised Gustavo Gutierrez, the "Father of Liberation Theology"
And His Contributions to the Formation of the Newchurch of the New Order

Francis-Bergoglio confirmed his affiliation with the murderous philosophy of "Liberation Theology," when, on June 7, 2018, he praised the founder of the Communist-associated group, "Fr." Gustavo Gutierrez. This philosophy, condemned by the Catholic Church, even by the Newchurch in the 1990s, took over the Jesuits and the Vatican II Anti-council in the early 1960s. Bergoglio himself was schooled in Liberation Theology during his long residence in Argentina, where Marxism and Liberation Theology abound.

Liberation Theology, aka "Social Justice," advocates an economic redistribution by force and violent revolution for social change. In a striking revelation in 1978, the highest ranking Cold War defector to the United States, a three-star general from the Soviet Union, asserted that the KGB [the Soviet Secret Police] had created Liberation Theology, exporting it to Latin America as a means of introducing Marxism into the continent. He stated: "The movement was born in the KGB, and it had a KGB-invented name: 'Liberation Theology.'" The Jesuit "priests," then becoming the Newjesuits, took up arms and tried to assassinate conservative officials of Latin American governments.

Fr. Malachi Martin, a counsellor to popes, a best-selling writer, and former Jesuit turned traditional Catholic priest, saw firsthand the infiltration of the Jesuit order by Communists and Literation Theologists. So scandalized by this fact was he that he applied and was allowed to leave the Jesuits, now turned Newjesuit, He then went on to write his 1988 blockbuster, Jesuits: The Society of Jesus and the Betray of the Roman Catholic Church, which so scandalized Newchurch and the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla that Martin received threats against his life. Later, when Fr. Martin investigated further, he found that the entire Newchurch was infested with Communism and even Satanism. He accordingly left Newchurch entirely and become one of the most noted independent traditional Catholic priests.

Yet Francis-Bergoglio has publicly dared to send his praises to Gutierrez, the "Father of Liberation Theology," on his 90th birthday and thanked him for his contributions to the formation of the Newchurch of the New Order. Nevertheless, Newchurch's own Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith had condemned Liberation Theology as based on Communist Marxism. Starting in 1949, any Catholics who hold such views have been excommunicated by Pope Pius XII. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Crux News Service.]

True Catholics, there is no doubt that from his public actions, Francis-Bergoglio is no Catholic. He is a Modernist, a Marxist, and a heretic. No true Catholic can follow him and become tainted with his crimes.

Francis-Bergoglio Will Not Visit Northern Ireland
His Health Is Too Dicey -- or He Fears Heaven's Lightening

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Francis-Bergoglio's Health Seems to Be Failing
He Has Canceled an October 2018 Newpapal Junket
To Northern Ireland because He Can't Endure a Two-hour Stop
The Real Problem May Be that He Has Enough Troubles
With Newchurch in Ireland
To Take on the Protestant-Newchurch Troubles in Northern Ireland
Or Maybe He Was Scared Off
By Heaven's Four-hour Lightening Attack on the British Isles
After the Irish Recently Voted to Adopt Abortion

In 2010 Benedict-Ratzinger was supposed to visit the Ireland on a Newpapal junket. However, hatred of Ratzinger was running so high because of his direct role in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust that the prime minister stood up in parliament to tell Ratzinger not to come; that his life could not be protected. Ireland was particularly hard hit by rampant paedophile crimes on the part of Newchurch bishops and presbyters, supported by Ratzinger.

In October 2018, Francis-Bergoglio supposed to make a Newpapal junket to Northern Ireland, but this junket too has been canceled. He is still supposed to visit Dublin and Knock, but even that is not certain. Newvatican has said that Bergoglio's health is so dicey that he can make only "short visits." However, a visit to Armagh, Northern Ireland, would involve only two hours, so that excuse is considered to be specious. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Irish Catholic.]

True Catholics, the real problem may be that Bergoglio has enough troubles with Newchurch in Ireland to take on the Protestant-Newchurch troubles in Northern Ireland. And there is certainly the problem of his health. And, who knows, maybe Heaven's four-hour lightening attack on the British Isles on May 26, 2018, after the Irish voted to adopt abortion, covered in a previous TRADITIO Commentary, scared him off!


A Reader Asks: "Why Did My Priest Not Follow the Rubrics
In My Traditional Handmissal for the Feast of the Most Holy Trinity?"

From: Jean
Hannibal Bugnini & Paul VI-Montini

The Freemason Presbyter Hannibal Bugnini (Left)
And the "Unblessed" Paul VI-Montini
Conspired to Impose on the "Institutional" Church
The Invalid Novus Ordo Mess in 1969
But the Groundwork Was Already Laid
In 1951, 1956, 1960, and 1962
Which Gradually Gutted the Traditional Latin Mass
And Turned It into an Invalid Protestantized Service

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

I attend Mass where the untraditional Hannibal Bugnini "modernizing" changes of 1951-1956 under Pius XII are observed. On Trinity Sunday I noticed in my 1945 traditional handmissal that the Last Gospel is supposed to be that of the First Sunday after Pentecost (Luke 6:36-42 about the blind leading the blind), but my priest used the usual Last Gospel of St. John. My handmissal also indicated that Collects from the First Sunday after Pentecost should be added after those of Trinity Sunday.

Could you explain why these discrepancies existed? I am really trying to find a fully Traditional Latin Mass that does not have the "modernizing" changes of the Freemason presbyter Bugnini of 1956 and 1962.

The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.

You have noticed yet another corruption brought in during the 1950s to set the stage for the Half Novus Ordo Mess of 1962 (aka "Extraordinary") and for the invalid Full-blown Novus Ordo Mess of 1969. The 1956 changes degrade the Lord's Day and make for much less variety in the Gospels, Collects, and Feastdays over the course of the liturgical year.

Traditionally, when a higher feast outranks the Sunday, as in the case of Trinity Sunday (a Double of the First Class) over the First Sunday after Pentecost (a lower-ranked Semidouble Sunday), the Sunday is nevertheless commemorated in the Collects, and its Gospel serves for the Last Gospel. This traditional principle operates because Sunday is the Lord's Day, and the normal Sunday must at least be commemorated even if outranked by a higher feast.

The Bugnini "modernizing" changes under Pius XII were the "poison" pill to soften Catholics up to accepting the invalid Novus Ordo Mess a decade later. Such 1956-1962 Messes should be avoided by true Catholics, most especially the Protestantized rites of Holy Week, which were gutted from the traditional Catholic and Apostolic form in 1956.

Francis-Bergoglio's Reign of Terror against Children
By His Newclergy Continues; Ecuador to Prosecute Presbyters for "Torture"

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Benedict-Ratzinger & Luis Figari

The Second Paedophile Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger
Warmly Greets the Notorious Paedophile Presbyter Luis Figari
Francis-Bergoglio Is Now Hiding Figari
In Newrome and Protecting Him and Other Paedophile Presbyters
Bergoglio's Newvatican Has Refused to Expel the Paedophile
Four Other Paedophiles in the Sodalitium Christianae Vitae
Also Accused of Sex Crimes against Children
Are Being Protected by Bergoglio and His Kangaroo Courts

Francis-Bergoglio's Newvatican has been publicly accused of protecting the founder of Sodalitium Christianae Vitae (Sodality of the Christian Life), a notorious paedophile involved in sexual, physical, and psychological abuse of children and teenagers of the group. The Sodalitium is just another Newchurch front group to facilitate paedophilia on the part of Newchurch clergy.

Bergoglio has been hiding Luis Figari in Newrome and has been protecting him. This is the standard modus operandi for Newpopes. They fly notorious paedophiles among their number to Newrome so that the civil authorities can't prosecute them. Even the fascist Italian dictator Benito Mussolini, who established the Vatican as an independent city-state in 1929, would denounce what the Newpopes after the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) have done with it!

Bergoglio's Newvatican has refused to expel the paedophile Figari. It has given him merely a slap on the wrist, requiring him not to make public statements. Even that mild rebuke Figari is appealing in Bergoglio's court. Four other presbyters in the Sodalitium are also accused of sex crimes against children. As yet, Bergoglio's courts have done nothing for ten sodomized children, as usual merely dragging its feet. Bergoglio's kangaroo courts are denounced as "having no teeth" when it comes to acting on sex crimes against minors by Bergoglio's Newchurch clergy. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Crux News Service.]

True Catholics, so enraged is Ecuador against Francis-Bergoglio's inaction against paedophile presbyters who have been committing sex crimes against its children that it is planning to prosecute at least one of the presbyters for torture, as that crime has no statute of limitations. Thus does Newchurch's -- and Bergoglio's -- reign of terror against children by his Newclergy continue.

Heretic Newpope Francis-Bergoglio Tells Eastern Orthodox Schismatics
That They No Longer Need to Be Converted to Roman Catholicism

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Kirill I & Francis-Bergoglio

Which Is the "Pope"?
Patriarch Kirill I (Left) of Moscow or Francis-Bergoglio of Newrome?
Bergoglio's Latest Decree Accepts Schismatic Eastern Orthodoxy
And Promises Not to Convert or "Middle" with It
He Rejects the Traditional Concept of Uniate Eastern Churches
That Is, Those in Union with Rome vs. the Schismatics
No One Now Seems to Know Where "Rome" Is
It Is Clear that It Is Not Associated with Bergoglio
As Bergoglio Has Now Rejected the Rome

The Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio is at it again. Having ordered his Newchurch religious orders that they should not try to convert non-Newchurchers, he has now said that the schismatic Eastern Orthodox, many of them historically associated with Marxist Communism, no longer have to become Newchurchers.

On May 30, 2018, Francis-Bergoglio told the Russian Orthodox schismatics that it was no longer necessary to become part of Newchurch. Traditionally, Easterners were divided into Unitiate, i.e., those in unity with the (legitimate) popes, and Schismatics, those who did not recognize the (legitimate) popes.

In fact, this policy of the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order began decades ago with the post Vatican II Anti-council's Newpopes. Bergoglio has now stated it emphatically as the policy of his Newchurch. He said that Newchurch will not try to convert the Eastern Orthodox schismatics and will not "meddle in the internal affairs of the Russian Orthodox Church."

The Fatimists, who still, to their own discredit, follow this Marxist Newpope, in all his heresies, are now wailing in betrayal. You see, Francis-Bergoglio's dictum rejects "the conversion of Russia" that the Fatimists hold so dear. True Catholic teaching is different from both the Fatimists and from Bergoglio: all pagans, infidels, schismatics, and heretics must convert to the true (traditional) Roman Catholic Faith.

True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio has effectively suppressed the Catholic Church by ordering that there should be no attempts to convert pagans, Jews, Mohammedans, heretics, and schismatics. The next step will be for him to encourage his Newchurchers to "fulfill their Sunday obligation" on Saturday in Jewish synagogues and Mohammedan mosques. Oh, wait -- Newchurch has already holds "approved" Saturday servicdes, aka "Golf Messes, in which Newchurchers violate the Bible by worshipping on Saturday like Jews!

Newchurch Archdiocese Collapses after 210,000,000 USD Judgment
Hits It for Rampant Presbyter Paedophila; Newarchbishop Abdicates

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Largest Damage Judgment

A Lawyer Breaks down when the Downfall
Of the Newchurch Archdiocese of Minneapolis-St. Paul Is Announced
The Largest Damage Judgment to Date, 210,000,000 U.S. Dollars
Is Being Assessed against the Newarchdiocese
For the Sex Crimes of Almost 100 Presbyter-paedophiles
Against 450 Child Victims
The Newarchbishop Was Also Forced to Abdicate in the Melee
The Newarchdiocese Has Been Completely Crippled
And May Soon Disappear into the Maelstrom

National courts are making Newchurch pay for its sex crimes, even though Newchurch itself has sat by twiddling its thumbs as the First Paedophile Newpope JPII "The Unsaint" Wojtyla, the Second Paedophile Newpope Benedict "The Nazi" Ratzinger, and the Third Paedophile Newpope Francis "The Marxist" Bergoglio have done nothing but coddle and suborn paedophilia in their presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals.

Now the largest damage judgment, announced May 31, 2018, ever entered against a Newchurch diocese, 210,000,000 U.S. Dollars, is pending against the Newarchdiocese of Minneapolis-St. Paul. In 2015 the Newarchdiocese had declared bankruptcy because the volume of claims by children against its Newbishops and presbyters had reached astronomical proportions. 10,000 secret documents of Newchurch were revealed to the public in the court proceedings, and Minneapolis-St. Paul was stunned at the depravity of Newchurch and its clergy.

Newarchbishop John Nienstedt abdicated in 2015 when the bankruptcy was announced, charged with failing to protect children from Newclergy-padeophiles. Nienstedt's Vicar General (No. 2) was fired. The Newarchdiocese was forced to sell off its land and other assets. The Newarchdiocese tried to fob off the damages onto its Newparishes, but a U.S. Federal Court interdicted that ploy. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Minneapolis-St. Paul Star Tribune.]

True Catholics, Newchurch has learned nothing from its exposure as an institution that condones and perpetrates the worst immoralities. Newchurch membership is dropping like a millstone in the sea, and no young men are standing forward to be new presbyters, afraid of being sodomized by the phony anti-Catholic Newchurch. It is as if the hand of God is reaching down from Heaven and telling true Catholics: "Let not your heart be troubled. Vengeance is mine."

A Reader Asks: "Can Ancillary Rooms in a Church Be Used
For Non-religious Purposes?"

From: Maria
Sacred Concert in the Sanactuary

Ancillary Rooms in a Church May Be Used for Non-religious Purposes
Occasionally, even the Sanctuary May Be Used for Extraordinary Purposes
Such as a Concert of Sacred Music
In Such a Case, However, the Blessed Sacrament Must Be Removed
to a Secondary Tabernacle away from the Area of the Performance

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

In the independent chapel I go to where only the fully Traditional Latin Mass Tridentine Mass is offered, the basement of our chapel has been used for non-religious purposes, such as birthday parties, bazaars, and other gatherings. If such use acceptable? What is the proper practice with regard to the use of ancillary rooms in a church, when the the Blessed Sacrament is reserved in the sanctuary?

The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.

Such use is acceptable, not being in the sanctuary or nave of the church, and even in different room and on a different floor. Occasionally, even the sanctuary may be used for extraordinary purposes such as a concert of sacred music. In such a case, however, the Blessed Sacrament must be removed to a secondary tabernacle away from the area of the performance.

As the Number of Newchurch Presbyter-ministers Approaches Zero
Francis-Bergoglio Issues a Document Saying that Team Sports Will Save Newchurch

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Newchurch's Own Graph Showing that the Number (Red Line)
Of Its Presbyter-Ministers Is Rapidly Approaching Zero
Why Should Smart Young Men Want to Join the Newchurch Clergy
Where They Will Be Protestantized and Sodomized?
Even Now in the Newarchdiocese of Los Angeles
There Is only One Presbyter-minister for Every 4,000 Newchurchers
Many Independent Traditional Catholic Sites outside Newchurch
Have One Actual Catholic Priest
For Every Dozen or Two Dozen Congregants
As in the Time of St. Paul and the Ensuing Three Centuries

The Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio just doesn't get it. His Newchurch is in its death throes. Its only salvation would be for all Newclergy from the Newpope on down to the Newdeacons to reject all of the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), to abjure publicly on their knees their Modernist heresy, and return forthwith to the Traditional Latin Mass and Sacraments (1950), to fully Catholic doctrine and morality.

The statistics just released by the Center for Applied Research in the Apstolate (CARA) out of the leftist Newchurch institution, Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., are the latest to predict that the number of presbyter-ministers is expected to fall close to zero by 2025. Why should smart young men want to join the Newchurch clergy? Newchurch is fake, not Catholic, and they know it. They won't even be ordained in the Sacrament of Holy Orders, but merely "installed" as presbyter-ministers under the Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968. Even if they ignored that fact, they know for sure that the chance of their being sodomized in a Newseminary is higher than their being sodomized in a prison.

From 1950, the number of priests -- since 1968 unordained Protestantized presbyter-ministers -- has fallen by one-third, and between 2015 and 2015, most of the remaining two-thirds will retire or quit. Even now in the Newarchdiocese of Dallas, Texas, there is only one presbyter-minister for every 6,229 Newchurchers. In the Newarchdiocese of Los Angeles, there is only one presbyter-minister for every 3,931 Newchurchers.

Independent traditional Catholics outside Newchurch are in a much better situation. Many sites have one actual Catholic priest (not a Protestantized presbyter-minister) for every dozen or two dozen congregants. Traditional Catholic who moan about the state of the Church in the modern area never think about this benefit to themselves. We are actually returning to the Catholic Church as it was in the time of St. Paul and the ensuing three centuries!

But Francis-Bergoglio has a different idea for how to save the Newchurch of the New Order: team sports! On June 1, 2018, he issued a document not in official Latin, but in vulgar Italian, entitled Dare il meglio di sé (Give the Best of Yourself). In it, he touts the saving grace of "team sports and the human person." In other words, salvation is from man, not from God. That is the same heretical message that the Protestants have been pitching since the Protestant Revolution, picked up at the Vatican II Anti-council by the Newchurch Modernist heretics. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Zenit News.]

Over the last five years of Francis-Bergoglio's Newpontificate, more voices have joined with the TRADITIO Network in concluding aloud that Bergoglio doesn't want even the Newchurch of the New Order to survive, but like a good Marxist, he wants to destroy the hated Catholic Church and replace it with a secularist dictatorship. Bergoglio is well on his way to achieving his Marxist/atheist goal.

Protestant Sect Plans to Destroy Statue of Jesus Christ
Because It Is "Too Catholic"

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Baptist Jesus

A Baptist Workman Reaches out to Destroy
A Statue of Jesus Christ Because It Is "Too Catholic"
The Pastor of the Church Says that the Statue
Brings into Question "the Theology and Core Values" of Protestantism
Protestantism Does Not Believe in Jesus Christ
At least in the True, Scriptural, Traditional Way
Like Newchurch, Many Protestant Sects Now Reject the Biblical Jesus
In Favor of the Milquetoast, Doubting Jesus
Who Stands for Nothing but Sex and Political Correctness

Since the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) put out its heretical doctrine of "Oecumenism" ("we all worship the same god," "all religions are equally true") -- formerly condemned by the Catholic Church and its popes under its original name, "Syncretism" -- Newchurchers love Protestantism. In fact, Newchurch is a Protestant sect, with a Protestant "liturgy," Protestant doctrine, and Protestant morality. But Protestants still hate Catholics. Newchurch willingly sold itself out, but the Protestants didn't bend a millimeter.

A Baptist church in Lexington, South Carolina, plans to destroy a hand-carved statue of Jesus Christ because some congregants believe it's "too Catholic." For a decade the 2-meter statue and accompanying reliefs depicting scenes from Christ's life have been displayed outside the Red Bank Baptist Church.

But in the age of the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, the Baptist Protestants want the statue and reliefs removed statim. The pastor of the church wrote the artist that the statue and reliefs bring into question "the theology and core values of Red Bank Baptist Church." Now we see the truth: Protestantism does not believe in Jesus Christ," at least in the true, Scriptural, Traditional way. The pastor refused to answer the question how the statue and reliefs were "too Catholic." He won't return phone calls. The artist was notified that he had a week to take the statue and reliefs, or they would be "destroyed."

Apparently, the pastor and his Protestant congregation think that they have "the wrong Jesus is in front of their church," the scriptural and historical events of Whose life are depicted under each arm. Like Newchurch, many Protestant sects now reject the Jesus of the Bible in favor the Milquetoast, Doubting Jesus Who stands for nothing but sex and political correctness. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]

True Catholics, God's truth eventually comes out. Most Protestants, formerly described as heretics, are no longer even Christians. The Newchurch of the New Order, which is certainly not Catholic, has now for fifty years joined itself to Protestantism, so it too is suffering the decline that most Protestant sects are. That is what happens when you deny the Christ's truth: the true Mass and Sacraments, true doctrine, and true morals.

After Welcoming Homosexuals and Paedophiles into His Newchurch
Francis-Bergoglio Has Now Appointed a Fornicator "Married" Newcardinal

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Toribio Iicona & Francis-Bergoglio

Francis-Bergoglio Embraces His Fellow Marxist
Bolivian Newbishop Julio Toricio Ticano
Whom He Has Picked to Be His Latest Newcardinal
Even Though Ticano Has Been Living in Open Concubinage
With a Woman Called His "Wife"
And Children in the Newchurch Chancery Office
In Fact, Ticano Is Committing Open Fornication
Which Scripture Tells Us Deprives the Fornicator
Of God and Christ and Sends Him Straight to Hell
Yet Such Is Bergoglio's "Buddy"

After denying the de fide doctrine of Hell and accepting sodomy and paedophilia without censure, Francis-Bergoglio has now appointed a "married" bishop to become a Newcardinal in his Newchurch. On May 2, 2018, Bergoglio announced that he proposes to make a Newcardinal out of a Newbishop who is living with a woman in public concubinage, or fornication, who his called his wife. The Newbishop in question is Bergoglio's fellow Marxist Toribio Ticona. He has been living in concubinage in the chancery office of Newchurch's Corocoro, Bolivia, Newdiocese. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]

In fact, Bergoglio's pick for Newcardinal is a notorious fornicator. Every Christian knows the penalty for that: "For know you this and understand, that no fornicator, or unclean, or covetous person (which is a serving of idols), hath inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God" (Ephesians 5:5/DRV).

It seems that there is nothing that Francis-Bergoglio will not do to destroy Catholicism. More and more in Newchurch are openly questioning whether he is really the pope, because he is violating the legal foundation of the office of the papacy as defined at the dogmatic Vatican I Council:

Neque enim Petri successoribus Spiritus sanctus promissus est, ut eo revelante novam doctrinam patefacerent, sed ut eo assistente traditam per apostolos revelationem seu fidei depositum sancte custodirent et fideliter exponerent.
--First Vatican Council, Constitutio Dogmatica Prima de Ecclesia Christi (Pastor Aeternus), cap. IV, De Romani Pontificis Infallibili Magisterio, July 18, 1870

[For the Holy Ghost was promised to the successors of Peter not so that they might, by His revelation, make known some new doctrine, but that, by His assistance, they might religiously guard and faithfully expound the revelation or Deposit of Faith transmitted by the Apostles.]

True Catholics, Bergoglio is like a CEO of the Coca Cola Corporation advocating Pepsi. He is rejecting the legal basis of his office; therefore, the Board of Directors will fire him for cause. And that is what seems to be the action brewing among several Newcardinals already in a growing "Dump Bergoglio" Movement.

A Reader Asks: "Can One Have Hope that the True Catholic Church
Will Once Again Become the 'Institutional' Church?"

From: Robert
St. Benedict

St. Benedict Believed that after a Time
Christian Civilization Would Return after Rome Fell
He Was Correct in that Belief
But He Was Dead Five Centuries before It Happened
We Are Barely Half a Century beyond Newchurch
And the Vatican II Anti-council in 1964
True Catholics Must Have Patience and Do as St. Paul:
"Fight the Good Fight"

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

I have been confused recently about happenings in the Newchurch of the New Order, headquartered in Newrome, which I understand is not the Roman Catholic Church. I can see that there is in it a rejection of Catholic teaching in both theory and practice, scandals involving both laymen and clergy, a decline in numbers and participation, and a looming "demographic crisis," which will probably wipe out a large part of church holdings and influence over the next few decades.

Your call for true Catholics to get out of the fake Newchurch and find a fully Traditional Latin Mass and Sacraments makes a lot of sense to me. In my studies on these matters, I have some questions that I have not been able to resolve by myself. Could you give me a Catholic perspective on them?

  1. What was the stance of St. Athanasius, called the Defender of the Faith during the Arian century when popes and bishops embraced the heresy that taught Christ was not divine.
  2. Why would God have abandoned what appears to many to be the "institutional" Church and required his faithful to find the true Catholic Faith elsewhere?
  3. Can one have hope that the true Catholic Church will once again become the "institutional" Church?

The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.

The goal is not to "get out" of the Catholic Church, but rather to stay in the Catholic Church. But as yourself describe it, the Newchurch of the New Order is not the Catholic Church. It shares nothing in common with the Catholic Church: not its doctrine, not its morals, and not its Mass and Sacraments. Newchurch is essentially Protestant and follows Protestant models. The Modernist revolutionaries have openly admitted this fact in the books they have written since the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965).

As to question 1, St. Athanasius did not in fact "recognize" the heretical popes and bishops of the 4th century: quite the contrary. He refused to recognize them in every possible way. Read his Letter to His Flock. See how he distinguishes those who "keep the buildings" from those who "keep the true Faith." The situation is no different today from what it was in the Arian fourth century.

St. Basil the Great, St. Martin of Tours, and St. Augustine, among many other Saints of the time, held a similar position. They refused to "recognize" the heretic popes and the heretical institution that they created. For further information, click on ARIANS: The Orthodox Saints against the Arian Heresy of the Fourth Century in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files: FAQs and Traditional Apologetics department.

As to question 2, it exhibits a kind of pride to hold that the modern age is the only one to be tested. God has tested His people from Old Testament times, as recorded in Genesis through the New Testament. As just one example, consider how you would have felt to learn one day that half of a completely unified Catholic Europe had deserted into a Protestant heresy. The Saints, however, didn't moan, as so many moderns do; instead, they fought for their Catholic Faith all the harder. We should follow their example.

Let's face it: we moderns want everything easy. For example, our Catholic predecessors were happy to fast from midnight to prepare properly for the reception of the Most Blessed Sacrament. Now the Newchurchers (who are not Catholic, but fancy themselves to be so) don't even fast three hours -- maybe just 15 minutes before their Protestantized "eucharistic meal" service begins.

As to question 3, by all means be hopeful in the eventual ascendency of the restored true Church. Even the great St. Benedict became so depressed at the condition of Rome that he left it and went to Monte Cassino with a few followers and all the great books of Greco-Roman Civilization.

St. Benedict believed that after a time, Christian civilization would return and would need the books preserved in his monastery. He was correct in that belief, but he was dead five centuries before it happened in that case. We are barely half a century beyond the institution of the fake Newchurch in 1964!

True Catholics must have patience and do as St. Paul: "fight the good fight." In religion, half a loaf is not better than none. Catholic doctrine teaches that one cannot accept even one dubious, let alone patently invalid, sacrament. One cannot accept even one heresy, which corrupts the totality of belief. One cannot accept even one immorality that contravenes God's Natural Law. For the true Catholic, it must be 100 per cent or nothing.
