On October 13, 2018, a leading Newvatican theologian consultor to the Congregation for the Causes of [New Order] Saints, Newmonsignor Nicola Bux, publicly stated that Francis-Bergoglio may not now be, and may never have been, a "juridically valid" pope. He called Bergoglio an apostate from the Catholic Faith, a heretic, and a schismatic.
The highly-placed Newvatican official is speaking for an increasing number of Newchurch leaders who are beginning to question whether tbe heretic Bergoglio is a valid pope. They are more than five years behind Traditional Catholics, who saw the reality from the beginning of Beroglio's regime, as well as those of his post-Vatican II predecessors. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by PJ Media.]
True Catholics, if in fact Francis-Bergoglio has not been a valid pope, he could be deemed an anti-pope and declared removed from the Newpapacy. In that case acts would be declared null and void. Newmonsignor Bux charged Bergoglio with issuing statements that are generating "heresies, schisms, and controversies of various kinds." Bux also pointed to Francis-Bergoglio's Protestant conception of the Newchurch of the New Order as "a federation of ecclesial communities."
On the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month of 1918, one hundred years ago, an armistice ended fighting in what was then called "The War to End All Wars," but what we know now as World War I. We have previously published photographs of Roman Catholic Masses in the battlefields of that war -- the Traditional Latin Mass that was then, and now, the only true Roman Catholic Mass. Now we publish exemplary photographs of Masses celebrated in the field during World War I, for both sides in the war. That was true oecumenism of the world in the Roman Catholic Faith, not the fake oecumenism of the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), in which "we all worship the same god" and "all religions are equal."
A battlefield Mass for the French troops on the front of Champagne in 1915:
For Austrian soldiers in Russian Galicia in 1915:
Mass for Italian troops on the Italo-Austrian front in the mountains of Tyrol in 1916.
Mass celebrated for Austrian prisoners of war in 1916.
Note the devotion of the priest and soldiers, even in the middle of one of the world's worst wars. Compare it to the invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Order Messes "clown" and other Messes that were foisted on the soldiers in the Vietnam War and afterward.
It's bad enough to be a Newchurch "nun." But if you lean toward the traditional, you're in double trouble. Francis-Bergoglio has been going on a rampage ever since he became Newpope to suppress pseudo-traditional orders, that is, those that try to use the half Novus Ordo Vatican II New Latin Mess of 1962 (aka "Extraordinary"). The first order suppressed was the Franciscan Missionaries of the Eternal Word. The most recent is the Little Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Redeemer.
To be sure, the Little Sisters, as all Newchurch pseudo-traditionalists, are pretty confused. They started in 1949 as fully traditional Catholic. In the 1960s they went Novus Ordo Newchurch. Then in 2012 they went half Novus Ordo Newchurch, to the New Latin Mess of 1962. After the recent fracas, they may go back to the fully Traditional Latin Mass of 1949!
Francis-Bergoglio has determined that the pseudo-traditional Little Sisters failed the Novus Ordo test and put them under his personal thumb, exiled the Mother Superior and Novice Mistress, and forced the order to go back to the invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Mess of 1969. The nuns were found to be devoting too much time to praying, Marian devotions, and confession. So, Bergoglio suppressed the order as previously constituted and appointed three of his own Modernist apparatchiks to run the order on New Order terms henceforth.
These Little Sisters, however, may be setting the example for the future by fighting back against Francis-Bergoglio. 90 per cent of the 40 some nuns have refused to submit to the Third Paedophile Newpope's "interference." They have hinted that they will go back to being fully traditional Catholic, outside Bergoglio and outside his Newchurch of the New Order, stating: "We wish to remain in communion with the Church, but we can show neither clearer nor more painfully that it is impossible for us, for reasons of conscience, to obey what we have been forced to do."
The Newdiocesan bishop in charge doesn't like the penitential nature of the order. He finds it "sectarian." In other words, these nuns don't play well with their full-blown Novus Ordo counterparts, who are hardly recognizable as religious, with their mini-skirts and lapel-pinned mini-crosses. Therefore, he reported the order to Bergoglio on "suspicion of traditionalism" and thence the suppression was ginned up by Bergoglio [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the German Katholisches News Service.]
True Catholics, like a good Marxist/Modernist, Francis-Bergoglio hates pseudo-traditionalists in his Newhchurch of the New Order, but he loves money and property more. Rumors are rife that he is about to confiscate the Little Sisters' property for its real-estate value. Perhaps he could not be criticized for doing so because the stream of money donated from the United States and Europe has decreased to a trickle because of his personal involvement in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. So Bergoglio must steal to survive. An apt response from the chief of what Our Lord Jesus Christ called a "den of thieves."
Just as we TRADITIO Fathers stated at the time, Newchurch would rue the day that it con-anized the First Paedophile Newpope, JPII-Wojtyla, a Newsaint. This was the last in a series of promotions given him by Wojtyla and his henchman at the time, Josef Ratzinger.
A detailed investigation has revealed that Hans Groer, Newcardinal of Vienna, Austria, had sexually assaulted over 2,000 boys and girls, young Newseminarians and Newmonks. Although after the truth came out, JPII-Wojtyla, his avid protector, had to remove him from office in 1998, but Groer never faced a trial, criminal or ecclesiastical.
JPII-Wojtyla, who was con-anized as a fake Newsaint in 2014 by the Third Paedophile Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio, was deaf as a doorpost to the many whistleblowers against Groer, just as Wojtyla was to the complaints against Newcardinal Bernard Law, of Boston, Massachusetts. It was the revelation of Law's cover-up of rampant sex crimes against children there that splashed Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust onto the pages of newspapers around the world. Wojtyla refused to have either Groer or Law investigated.
But the whistleblowers became even more shrill against Groer, and eventually JPII-Wojtyla was dragged kicking and screaming into initiating an investigation into the Newcardinal-pervert. That investigation revealed that Groer had assignated almost every young Newseminarian and Newmonk with whom he had come in contact with over his 61-year career. Eventually, Wojtyla hid Groer away in an East German Newchurch convent to die in 2003.
The Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla wrote a lengthy letter to the Austrian bishops, in which he called the Newcardinal-paedophile "honorable." Curiously, this is the same adjective that Francis-Bergoglio used in October 2018 to characterize Donald Wuerl, Newcardinal of Washington, D.C., who was exposed in the 2018 Pennsylvania Grand Jury report as suborning a paedophile ring in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Wojtyla went on to praise Groer as having served "with great love for Christ and his Church." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic Inquisitor.]
True Catholics, the Newchurch of the New Order has been run by a passel of paedophile Newpopes. Their moral corruption is almost beyond description. That the Third Paedophile Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio, should collude to con-anize his predecessor, the First Paedophile Newpope, JPII-Wojtyla, as a fake Novus Ordo Newsaint, is almost beyond belief -- but not for the corrupt Newchurch. No doubt, when Benedict-Ratzinger goes to his judgment shortly, Bergoglio will con-anize Ratzinger too. Bergoglio has already pre-announced that when he himself dies, he will become a Novus Ordo Unsaint! That's how the phony Newchurch does it. No part of it is Catholic, and no true Catholic can have anything to do with what Our Lord Jesus Christ called "a den of thieves."
On November 13. 2018, Francis-Bergoglio appointed one of the most radical Modernists around as a member of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith. And Newarchbishop Charles Jude Scicluna, of Malta has not yet turned 60. Words fail. Scicluna worked hard before 2012 to limit use of the half New Order Vatican II 1962 New Latin Mess. He was then a member of the Ecclesia Dei Commission, but Benedict-Ratzinger eventually sent him back to Malta, where he was appointed auxiliary Newbishop.
Scicluna was rehabilitated by Francis-Bergoglio and made Newarchbishop of Malta over the head of the main candidate for that position. He later became the most vehement supporter of Bergoglio in the interpretation of his heretical document Amoris laetitia (The Joy of Sex), which attempted to undermine the Sacrament of Matrimony. Scicluna in his new position has imposed this interpretation in Malta with an iron fist and has threatened to remove any Newchurch presbyter there who does not toe the line and hand out the invalid Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid to bigamists. He was also present at the recent Youth Synod to push the radical line for Bergoglio.
The Prefect for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith is Newcardinal Gerhard Mueller's old deputy, now a Newcardinal himself, Francisco Ladaria Ferrer. He is 74 years old. Is the handwriting on the wall here? While it's true that Ladaria Ferrer's term has 3 years left to it, he might be asked to step aside once he turns 75 early next year, as Bergoglio has already done with his other appointees.
The most Neoconservative of the officials in the Congregation for the [New Order] Faith is Newarchbishop Augustine Di Noia. He turns 75 in September, and his five-year term expired in July 2018. So he's likely busy packing his bags to return to the United States. Bergoglio removed him as Vice President of the Ecclesia Dei Commission because he promoted the 1962 New Latin Mess in the Baltic States.
The U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops is holding its biannual meeting November 12-14, 2018, in Washington, D.C. The Newbishops have been burned so badly by the exposure of Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick as a rampant paedophile and Newcardinal Donald Wuerl as suborning a paedophile ring that at least some of the Newbishops want to do something -- too little, too late -- even if Francis-Bergoglio doesn't want to do anything.
But on the morning of the meeting's first day, they were shocked by a last-minute announcement from Bergoglio, who has ordered the U.S. Newbishops to do nothing to stop Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. Apparently, Bergoglio is afraid that he will be exposed by the USCCB as a paedophile ringleader. In August 2018, the Pennsylvania Grand Jury issued a lengthy investigative report, in which several Newbishops were exposed as paedophiles and/or paedophile supporters, including Wuerl, Newcardinal of Washington, D.C. The report demonstrated that in just six Newchurch dioceses, 300 presbyters and Newbishops had committed sex crimes against more than one thousand children. Prosecutors in other states are now conducting investigations, and federal RICO (Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations) charges are being considered against Newchurch.
Bergoglio has called a much-delayed February 2019 meeting in Newrome, so that he can engineer that meeting for his own propaganda purposes, just as he engineered the October 2019 Youth Synod to introduce friendliness to homosexuality. By his prohibition, Francis-Bergoglio has killed action to combat paedophile crimes, to establish a code of conduct, and to create a special outside commission to review charges against Newbishops for paedophile crimes.
Immediately, charges of "machinations" against the Third Paedophile Newpope were issued. Even a Newchurch presbyters' organization denounced Francis-Bergoglio, stating that he was sending a message that he "doesn't recognize the urgency of the moment." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Wall Street Journal.]
True Catholics, at this point, more than five years into the Bergoglian regime, the Third Paedophile Newpope's unchanged modus operandi should surprise no one. He is not concerned about paedophile crimes perpetrated by his Newclergy. Most high Newclergy he pardons or promotes. If anyone tries to do anything, Bergoglio shuts him down. If anyone speaks out against Bergoglio's own involvement in the Paedophile Holocaust, like Newvatican's Ambassador to the United States, Carlo Vigano, Bergoglio sends out his security team to drag him back to Newrome for a kangaroo trial. The world is now beginning to see what we TRADITIO Fathers have said from the beginning of his regime: the Marxist/Modernist Bergoglio is a fraud as a pope, a fraud as a Newchurch clergyman, and a fraud as a human being. In accordance with traditional Catholic moral theology, no true Catholic can have anything to do with this man.
Some months ago the Newvatican gendarmes broke up a cocaine-fueled orgy on July 6, 2018, in an apartment at the Congregation for the [New Order] Faith next to St. Peter's Archbasilica. The participants in this vile sin were also taking cocaine with their sodomy. Newcardinal Francesco Coccopalmerio, a favorite of Bergoglio, was present and was whisked away by the police before arrests could be made. It is known that the tenant in the apartment was Coccopalmerio's secretary, Luigi Capozzi. He is now in hiding, supposedly doing penance and receiving treatment. And if you believe that, you'll believe anything. But the others were also arrested -- except for the ringleader, Coccopalmerio, who smuggled the cocaine in with his Newcardinaltial limousine, which was exempt from search.
Francis-Bergoglio has perpetrated a complete cover-up of this incident. Many unanswered questions remain:
The Neoconservative press and even the pseudo-traditional press is silent. They are not Catholic, but Bergoglians. But that situation is soon going to end. Bergoglio is finally being called out by name in the international press as a perversion protector. His reputation is now toast, and the international Marxist/Modernist lobby that protects and funds him is about to throw him under the bus.
Everyone from Newcardinals to lowly Newchurchers warned Francis-Bergoglio not to sign an agreement selling out Newchurch to atheist Communist China. But Bergoglio, narcissistic and stubborn as always, went ahead anyway. Now, on November 9, 2018, Red China has arrested one of Bergoglio's Newbishops, Shao Zhuman, of Wenzhou.
Under the corrupt Sino-Newvatican agreement recently signed by the Marxist Newpope, Newchurchers are banned from visiting the tombs of Newclergy in the octave after All Souls Day. Those under age 18 are prohibited from attending the Newchurch Mess and catechism classes. Newchurch in China cannot have contact with Bergoglio. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by AsiaNews.]
True Catholics, sometimes it is difficult to ascertain whether Francis-Bergoglio is completely clueless or whether he intends to destroy his Newchurch deliberately. His Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD) is getting completely out of control, and his own Newchurch officials are publicly resisting him for his complicity in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, which is increasing, not abating.
The story of David Jones's (1895-1974) conversion to the true Catholic Faith is instructive. It could not have happened after the fake "New" Mess of 1969 arrived. Jones was a noted painter and British poet of major importance in the twentieth century. His Catholic beliefs deeply influenced his works.
Jones was born in 1895 in London to Protestant parents. He served in World War I in several battles on the Somme in France in 1916, where his life was changed forever. It was there that he first saw the fully Traditional Latin Mass:
Off duty one wet Sunday, Fusilier Jones wandered along the frontline looking for firewood. He came upon a byre where he thought he might find some wood. Putting his eye to a crack in the paling, he spied two candles and a man dressed in liturgical vestments facing a stack of ammunition boxes covered in a white cloth. Half a dozen men knelt around this figure. Unexpectedly, the tinkling of a bell broke the silence, followed by Latin words, gently spoken.
Jones later expressed marvel at the event, which he recognized as a fully Traditional Catholic Mass. He began to attend Mass at Westminster Cathedral, which was near the art school in which he was enrolled. Eventually, he became Catholic and practiced a semi-monastic life in an art community. He regularly went to Mass on Sundays and to Confession. He loved the traditional Latin liturgy.
Jones lived into the early 1970s and was able to observe the invalid "New" Mess of 1969. This Mess he condemned in no uncertain terms, with its use of vulgar tongues and vulgar music. He joined in the signing of what is known as the Agatha Christie Letter, which called on Paul VI-Montini to restore the Traditional Latin Mass. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Counterpoint Press.]
True Catholics, David Jones would not have been moved to become a Catholic if he had been exposed to the fake "New" Mess of 1969 instead of the fully Traditional Latin Mass before the "modernizations" and invalidities starting in the 1950s. Jones is not the only cultural icon to have been converted by the true Mass. French poet Paul Claudel, British actor Sir Alec Guinness, British historian Edward Gibbon, American actor and art collector Vincent Price, British playwright Oscar Wilde, and German composer Ludwig von Beethoven, to name just a few, were so attracted by the beauty of the fully Traditional Latin Mass that they converted to the true Faith. Now anyone of culture runs as fast as possible in the direction opposite to the "New" Mess.
Newchurch's Great Sex and Embezzlement Holocaust is growing around the world and is netting females as well as males. A presbyter who was a prime witness in the rape case against Newbishop Franco Mulakkal has been found dead on October 23, 2018, of apparent foul play. Mulakkal was charged with repeatedly raping a nun of the Missionaries of Jesus between 2014 and 2016.
The family of presbyter Kuriakose Kattuthara believes that Kattuthara was killed for his strong stand against the Newbishop, saying that "he was under tremendous pressure” to retract his statements against the Newbishop." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Catholic Herald.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio knew all about Newbishop Mulakkal. He had been removed from his Newdiocesan admininstrative duties, but Bergoglio allowed him to continue his predations as Newbishop of Jullundur, India. Now Francis-Bergoglio's corrupt Newclergymen are expanding its predations to females as well as males and, when they do, most times they are allowed to continue in their Newchurch positions. The regime of Bergoglio is truly a "sewer of blood and filth," the term that the poet Dante used to describe the corrupt pope of his time.
The hypocritical Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, who at the beginning of his regime denounced the "Gay Lobby" that was in control of Newvatican, has now been exposed as himself part of that "Gay Libby" by appointing "gay" Newbishops and Newcardinals to take over the Newchurch of the New Order. His goal appears to be, in historical continuance of Newchurch's policy of aping the Protestant Anglicans, to sodomize Newchurch by placing homosexuals in the highest positions and undoubtedly setting the stage later for planting lesbians, when deaconnessess and presbyteresses are finally approved.
This information was revealed on November 7, 2018, by a close Marxist/Modernist Newjesuit colleague of Francis-Bergoglio, presbyter James Martin, at the Ignatian Family Teach-in for Justice 2018 in Washington, D.C. Martin also edits the Newjesuits' propaganda mouthpiece, America and also serves as one of Bergoglio's Consultors.
Bergoglio, says presbyter Martin, has never taught what the true Church and Scripture teach about sodomy, that it is One of the Four Sins that Cry out to God for Retribution. Bergoglio's immoral statement was "Who am I to judge?" A true pope could not say such a thing, as it would indicate that his is not Catholic. "Gay" propaganda was included for the first time in a Newvatican document in the Final Report of Bergoglio's staged October 2018 Synod on Youth. Bergoglio has appointed Newbishops and Newcardinals who support the immoral Leftist homosexual agenda. Some of these have sponsored "gay-friendly" Messes in their cathedrals.
Presbyter Martin's revelation is not that new. Already Francis-Bergoglio's former Ambassador to the United States, Newarchbishop Carlo Vigano, who turned whistleblower against Bergoglio for his paedophile connections, announced in his August 2018 Vigano Memorandum that it was at the behest of the disgraced paedophile Newcardinals Theodore McCarrick and Donald Wuerl, of Washington, D.C., that Bergoglio appointed non-vetted homosexual-activists such as: [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]
True Catholics, it is deeply revealing that Francis-Bergoglio is pushing this immorality at the very same time that he and his regime are sinking into the muck of Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, which, far from coming to an end, is picking up speed and exposing the hypocrisy of the Third Paeodphile Newpope Bergoglio. Presbyter Martin's and Newarchbishop Vigano's statements confirm that these occurrences are not mere happenstance, but a deliberate programme commanded by the Marxist/Modernist Newpope Bergoglio.
Two Newchurch prelates often called "traditionalist," but who are in fact full devotees of the invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New" Mess, have been placed on restriction by Francis-Bergoglio, Newcardinal Raymond Burke and Newbishop Athanasius Schneider. The two have been outspoken critics of Bergoglio and his heretical "Amoris laetitiae (Joy of Sex) document of March 19, 2016, attempting to redefine the Catholic Sacrament of Matrimony.
Francis-Bergoglio's Secretariat of State has directed American bishops not to invite Newcardinal Burke to speak in any Newdiocese in the United States. This directive was sent sub rosa to all the Newbishops in the U.S. Burke was one of four Newcardinals, two of whom are now dead, who publicly, but "respectfully," challenged Bergoglio on his heretical documents.
Francis-Bergoglio's Secretariat of State has also placed Newbishop Athanasius Schneider, who has publicly, but "respectfully," questioned certain acts and teachings of Bergoglio, under virtual house arrest not to leave Kazakhstan. Because the order was delivered to Schneider orally, not in writing, Schneider cannot appeal the order. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio has not, however, restricted the travel of the paedophile Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick, of Washington, D.C. Instead, Bergoglio has sent McCarrick as his representative to Red China, Cuba, and the Philippines. The Neocon Newchurchers, that is, the "conservative" Newchurchers who still associate with the New Order sect, idolize Burke and Schneider. It remains to be seen whether their hypocritical Neocon supporters will finally break their association with the fake Newchurch of the New Order.
The cathedral at Cologne, Germany, erected in the thirteenth century, is a magnificent structure, in which stands a large ornamented reliquary containing the relics of the Three Magi, acquired by Frederick Barbarossa in the conquest of Milan. Like many mediaeval churches, its exterior walls display figures known as gargoyles. These figures have been used used on churches since mediaeval times to depict evil, their function being to scare Christians and turn them away the evil depicted.
On October 30, 2018, the Third Paedophile Newpope, the Marxist/Modernist Francis-Bergoglio, took up his place, hung like the perfidious Judas, as a gargoyle devil. Bergoglio joins, among other evil figures real and mythical depicted his fellow Marxist, Communist Dictator Nikita Khrushchev. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Agensir Italian Press Agency.]
True Catholics, Bergoglio's gargoyle wears a particularly devilish smirk, reminiscent of his callous indifference to the child victims sodomized, raped, and otherwise sexually assaulted by his corrupt presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals. Somehow, Bergoglio's depiction as a devil seems only too realistic.
On November 4, 2018, during the live 15:00 UT broadcast by the Novus Ordo EWTN Cable Network of its fake Novus Ordo Mess, a man, who may have been a traditional Catholic, charged the "eucharistic table" during the "consecration", and shouted: "That's it. No more, no more. I've had enough. My father and I have had enough. No more conciliation with the [Free]masons." The man caused no physical harm to anyone and was peaceably removed. The presbyter (Newchurch has not ordained priests since adopting the Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968), Wade Menezes, practically dropped the "cup" during the elevation. Menezes was described as looking "scared to death."
If the man was in fact trying to bring to the attention of the world the phony Mess that EWTN shovels out year after year over cable television, he would have been speaking for many traditional Catholics who have had to put up with slander and Protestantized services from the Newchurch of the New Order ever since the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) and its phony "New" Mess of 1969, which is not a Roman Catholic Mass at all, but an invalid fake based on Protestant and Jewish models. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Eternal Word Television Network.]
True Catholics, the Novus Ordo EWTN Cable Network has long presented the fake Vatican II Protestantized "liturgy" and has harbored presbyters who are paedophiles, as well as druggies, patrons of prostitutes, and drunks. EWTN's corruption was exposed in the 2006 book, EWTN: A Network Gone Wrong. Examples of the corrupt presbyters featured on EWTN are the lionized John Corapi, who resigned from the Novus Ordo prebyterate in 2011, and Benedict Groeschel, an agent of New Order sect, who claimed that Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust was merely a creation of the media and that the child victims are liars. Groeschel passed to his eternal judgment in 2014.
Philippine President Rodrigo Duterte is a brave man. The President of the once-Catholic country has been taking Francis-Bergoglio and his anti-Catholic Newchurch head on. On November 1, 2018, All Saints Day, Duterte mocked the phony "unsaints" that Bergoglio has been con-anizing, like the Marxist/Modernist Oscar Romero and the Heretical Newpope Paul VI-Montini, who promulgated all the Vatican II Anti-council's documents, which created the anti-Catholic Newchurch in 1964. Duterte stated sarcastically that members of the fake Newchurch might just as well venerate him!
The Filipinos love Duterte, not Francis-Bergoglio. Duterte won election as their president in 2016 by an astonishing margin of 70-30. Duterte has openly stated that Newchurch in the Philippines has links to the Communist Party. He certainly isn't wrong about that. Bergoglio himself is a Marxist. Duterte doesn't hold his punches against Francis-Bergoglio's paedophile Newchurch. He has said that its clergy should "die of veneral disease." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by CNN.]
True Catholics, there is still some true Catholicism left in the Filipinos, whereas it has disappeared from the citizens of most other countries. Filipinos are prominent members in many independent traditional Catholic churches around the world. They are gutsy people, deeply devout, who withstood the cruelty and predations of the Japenese in World War II. Now some of them at least are standing up for the true Roman Catholic Faith.
It isn't just boys that are being sodomized by Newchurch clergy. Now that altar-girls are in widespread use in the anti-Catholic New Order sect, they have become victims as well.
Remember that one of Newchurch's worst paedophile presbyters was Marciel Maciel, head of the Legionaries of Christ, beloved of Neocon Newchurchers, was a flagrant paedophile against both sexes and raped adult men and women as well. He even brought his "wife" and bastard children to present to the Second Paedophile Newpope, the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla, who showed the pervert Maciel every sign of favoritism.
Now Steubenville, Ohio, presbyter Henry Foxhoven has confessed to raping a teenage "altar-girl" and impregnating her. Foxhoven was charged on October 30, 2018, with eight counts of rape upon the girl, who was an "altar-girl" at Unholy Cross Newparish, in whose rectory he raped the girl repeatedly for over a month. The police searched the rectory and found eight used prophylactics. Apparently, they didn't work because the girl became pregnant.
The Steubenville Newdiocese has already admitted to having another sixteen rapist-priests. The Newdiocese is known for being a hotbed of Modernist heretics. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Columbus Dispatch.]
True Catholics, if this girl's parents were truly Catholic, they wouldn't even have been in this Newparish. They would have told the girl that Newchurch does not have a valid Mass and that its presbyters are unordained fakes. Thus, the girl would have been safe. These sad cases are not the children's fault. After Francis-Bergoglio's criminal Newchurch clergy, these cases are primarily the careless parents' fault.
Francis-Bergoglio's "Zero Tolerance" policy against his paedophile clergy is a complete sham. Presbyter Pierre Vignon found this out when he gathered 100,000 signatures to oust Newcardinal Philippe Barbarin, of Lyon, France, who is going on criminal trial in France in January 2019 on charges relating to paedophilia. Francis-Bergoglio, far from firing the corrupt Newcardinal, has called him "brave."
As a result Vignon has been fired. On November 1, 2018, presbyter Vignon announced that he was being fired from a Newchurch court on which he had sat as a judge since 2002. Vignon charged Newchurch with rank hypocrisy. "They say, 'We want to do everything,' but to whistleblowers, 'We want to shut you up.'" The No. 3 man at Newvatican, Luis Ferrer, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith, was subpoenaed by the French court hearing Barbarin's criminal case, but Francis-Bergoglio has refused to let Ferrer, Bergoglio's fellow Marxist Newjesuit, to testify. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio is a fake. Far from having any concern for children sodomized by his corrupt Newclergy, as his expensive Newvatican propaganda depicts him, he regards paedophiles as "brave" and "honorable." No wonder Newchurchers are deserting Bergoglio and his Newchurch in droves. Within a year he'll likely be joining the ex-Nazi Modernist Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger in the Newpopes' retirement villa in the Vatican Gardens under house arrest.
On October 20, 2018, the annual statistics for Newchurch of the New Order were issued as of the end of 2016. They certainly don't look good for the future of Newchurch. Some examples:
As if to buck this trend, Francis-Bergoglio increased the Newchurch bureaucracy by appointing yet another 49 bishops, so that the world total of phony Newbishops now well exceeds 5,000! [Agenzia Fides News Service.]
True Catholics, these statistics are from two years ago, and the intervening two years are expected to have been far worse. The Newchurch corpse is bleeding out an accelerated pace, with Western countries leading the exodus. Can Newchurch's death be far off?
The bodies of three Newcardinals were hung in effigy from a heavily-trafficked bridge in Santiago, Chile, on October 29, 2018, in an extreme display of rage against Francis-Bergoglio and his corrupt Newclergy. Chile's children, like those of many other countries around the world, have suffered much at the hands of Newchurch's corrupt clergy, from Bergoglio on down.
The Chilean patriotic group that arranged the effigy stated: "We see that certain forces are trying to normalize actions that are sick and damaging. Paedophilia, sexual depredation, and other deviations already have real lobbies of influence at the highest levels." One of the aspects of this problem, the group asserted, is the "depravity" found in a part of Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch clergy.
True Catholics, the rage against Francis-Bergoglio for his now well-proven involvement in the paedophile holocaust perpetrated by him, his Newcardinals, his Newbishops, and his presbyters, either in act or by complicity, is growing into a firestorm. Bergoglio has lost the support of many in his own Newchurch, who are fighting back not only at his immorality but also his Marxist/Modernist doctrine and fake "liturgy." At this point Newchurch cannot be saved, any more than can mainline Protestantism. Because Newchurch is heretical, it is dying.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
My question pertains to the TRADITIO Fathers' reply on September 3, 2018:
We might mention here a bad practice that some penitents have fallen into, saying an Act of Contrition on top of the priest saying the prayers of Absolution. Such a practice borders on sacrilege, because no one should be speaking on top of the priest. Moreover, the traditional Roman Catholic Rituale Romanum does not require the penitent to recite an Act of Contrition at all. According to Catholic moral theology, the act of confession implies contrition on the part of the penitent.
In my experience, it has been the priest himself who directs the penitent to make a "good Act of Contrition" and who then proceeds to say the prayers of Absolution on top of the penitent's Act of Contrition. Therefore, it appears that the solution to this problem would require the priest modify his behavior, either to delay saying the prayers of Absolution until after the penitent has recited the Act of Contrition or simply to directing penitents to recite the Act of Contrition. In what manner should a lay person broach this problem to a priest?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
The practice that you describe may be common in some areas, but is not in strict accordance with the Rituale Romanum. It is a sloppy procedure that started coming in with the liturgical aberrations in the Sacraments introduced in the 1950s by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini and implies a kind of sacrilege, when the form (words) of the Sacrament are being ignored while the penitent jabbers on top of the weighty words of Absolution being uttered by the priest.
There is nothing like this procedure practiced with any other Sacraments. Do people jabber on top of the priest's "Ego te baptizo...? Of course not. This practice seems to arise from an improper desire to "rush through" the Sacrament. The same kind of abominable practice is exemplified by somebody, even another priest, reading the Epistle and Gospel in the vulgar tongue on top of the priest who is reading the Epistle and Gospel in Latin at the altar. This aberrant practice also begin in the 1950s, when the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini started his efforts to corrupt the Holy Mass, the Divine Office, and the Sacraments.
What can you do? If the priest directs you to say an Act of Contrition, tell him: "Father, I want to hear the words of absolution. Would you like me to say the Act of Contrition before or after you impart the absolution? That way, the priest will get the point and have to make a decision. Even though the Act of Contrition is not required, it would not be sinful to say it if the priest directed you to. Eventually, he may realize that it should be omitted.
Francis-Bergoglio still doesn't get it. At least he won't admit to getting it. He doesn't see that that he and his perverted Newchurch of the New Order are sinking into a morass of corruption and ruining the lives of now hundreds of thousands of sexually-assaulted children around the world. So, to what cause does Bergoglio attribute the evil in his Newchurch? Not sin. Not perversion. Not crime. No, Bergoglio's cause is "clericalism."
What in God's name is "clericalism"? Here is what came from his own mouth on October 27, 2018, to the Newarchdiocesan Synod in Buenos Aires: "To walk in synodality means that the whole diocesan, parochial or collegial community, such as a school, walks together.... So, beware of clericalism, which is a perversion in the body of the Church." Notice Bergoglio's injection of the Protestant "synodality." We don't listen to God. We don't listen to God's teaching in Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition. No, we all vote on what we want. Forget God! Protestants and Newchurchers have synods. True Catholics have God.
How could Francis-Bergoglio be so wrong? Didn't he ever get a Catholic education? The answer is no. He was indoctrinated by the Marxist Newjesuits in Marxist "Liberation Theology." Otherwise he would know that that a priest is not some Marxist social worker. Traditionally, he is ordained in the Sacrament of Holy Orders to offer the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass for the living and the dead. That is what a priest does: he offers sacrifice in the name of the people. Even the ancient pagans -- Egyptians, Greeks, Romans, etc. -- understood that. But Bergoglio is worse than a pagan.
But, maybe his ignorance of Catholicism, is understandable. Protestants don't have priests. They have ministers. Bergoglio's own Newchurch of the New Order hasn't ordained priests since 1968, when it abolished the traditional Sacrament of Holy Orders, adopted the invalid Protestantized New Ordinal and began merely "installing" presbyters (ministers) with no power to "offer the Sacrifice of the Mass for the living and the dead" and to "forgive sins." That was stricken out in 1968. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Vatican Press Office.]
True Catholics, no wonder Newchurch is disappearing into the quicksand. It has no God (Marixsts are atheists). It has no Mass (it lost that in 1969 with the invalid New Mess). It has no Sacraments (it has done away with most of them, except perhaps for Baptism and Matrimony, and even these are not certain in Newchurch). It has made up doctrine that is worse than Protestant. And it has adopted a morality more fit for a pig-sty than for human beings.
