Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I have been having an argument with a pseudo-traditionalist about whether the Sacred Liturgy remained unchanged in 1958, when Pius XII died. Some maintain that he was "last traditional pope." Others say that he started the path to the corruption of the Traditional Latin Mass.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
The traditional Catholic community has become increasingly aware that it was not John XXIII (1958-1963) who laid the foundation for the New Order, but Pius XII (1939-1958). In 1948 Pius XII appointed the Modernist heretic, Hannibal Bugnini, the "Father of the New Order Liturgy" to head a new Commission for the Modernization of the Mass to act as a foil against the strongly traditional Sacred Congregation of Rites, constituted by Pope Sixtus V in 1588 to protect the integrity of the Mass. The liturgical revolutionaries, like Bugnini, who wanted to invalidate the Mass to a universal Protestant-style service, couldn't get their ideas through the Congregation of Rites, so they prevailed upon Pius XII to set up a competing body that would approve their New Order revolution.
Bugnini and his Modernist Commission wasted no time. Just three years after the new Commission was organized in 1948, it changed the rite and time for the Easter Vigil. In 1954, it introduced vulgar tongues into the Sacraments, a change that was unheard of up to that time. In 1956 the Commission executed its biggest coup, in which it implemented the First Stage of the New Order. The scope of this package of "modernizations" was stunning. Many feasts of the Blessed Virgin Mary, St. Joseph, and other Saints were demoted, and some Saints were eliminated entirely, However, the Commission's most blatant sacrilege was its gutting of the ancient Catholic and Apostolic Holy Week and replacing it with so many Protestant changes that it didn't have to be much further modified in the 1969 Missal for the "New Mess." At the same time the ancient Catholic and Apostolic Eucharistic fast from midnight was reduced to a "mini fast" of one to three hours, a change that led to further profanation of the Mass.
The facts, much as many traditional Catholics want to preserve the myth of Pius XII as the "last traditional pope," show that Pius XII and Bugnini were in league, at least to some extent, in starting the decline of the Traditional Latin Mass into the invalid New Mess of 1969. John XXIII tried to beat back Bugnini and published a strong defense of the Traditional Latin Mass in his eloquent 1962 Apostolic Constitution Veterum sapientia, in which he strongly mandated the study and use of Latin in ecclesiastical studies, theology, the Sacred Liturgy, and as a prerequisite for priestly formation. Then John XXIII proceeded to fire the Modernist Bugnini as a heretic. But after John XXIII's untimely death in 1963, Paul VI-Montini the first Newpope of the Newchurch, founded at the Vatican II Anti-council in 1964, reappointed Bugnini, who thereupon completed the implementation of his invalid, Protestantized "New Mess," which remains Newchurch's Mess to this day.

One thing you can count on from Marxist/Modernists is that they support one another. Now that Bergoglio's complicity in the paedophile crimes of his Newclergy has been proven, and his popularity has fallen precipitously, Kaspar, on January 16, 2019, former president of Newchurch's Council for Promoting Christian Unity and one of Bergoglio's closest allies, is trying to blame Bergoglio's "opponents" for using the Newchurch crisis as a platform to expel Bergoglio from the Newpapacy and to elect a new Newpope that suits their agenda.
Bergoglio, in addition to his heretical statements, operates as the "Dictator Pope," as documented in a 2017 book of the same name by historian Henry Sire as "prone to losing his temper, using vulgar language, and seeking control." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Crux News Service.]
True Catholics, Newcardinal Kasper's attitude is clearly indicative of why the Newchurch of the New Order will continue to sink into oblivion and why its criminal activities are now so far out of control that nothing can be done to save it. These Marxist/Modernist just don't get it. Like political Leftists, they live only in the fabricated world of their own creation. Neither Kasper nor Francis-Bergoglio nor any of the other minions of Newchurch, invented by the Vatican II Anti-council in 1964, is Catholic. They despise Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, the two sources of the Catholic Faith because those sources reject their Marxist/Modernist heresies, sacrileges, and crimes.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Would it be sinful for me to go on a short vacation with a close relative and his "girlfriend" who are living together outside of marriage and stay in the same condominium with them? They will sleep together in another bedroom. They know that I'm not in favor of their sinful relationship, and I have asked them to marry. They claim that they plan to marry in about two years.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
The issue in such cases is whether your cooperation with the evil is "material" (accidental) or "formal" (essential). You have to make that judgment exercising the capital moral virtue of prudence, taking account all the factors in this specific situation. You must judge how much scandal you would be causing to others in this situation, which involves more than just having a meal together or taking a ride together.
You say that you have made your objection to this immoral situation clear. Fornication outside of marriage is not some "venial" sin, but one of the most serious. St. Paul declares the Apostolic Tradition in no uncertain terms: "No fornicator ... hath inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God" (Ephesians 5:5/DRV).
Because your conscience is obviously troubled by this association with your fornicating relative -- and it is a very troubling immoral situation --, you should seriously consider telling your relative nicely that you will be happy to take a vacation with him alone now or with both of them when they are married. That action might actually induce him to turn from his sinful ways and save his soul.
For all you know, these two will never be married. Studies show that most of those who fornicate outside of marriage never in fact marry -- quite the opposite. You are not morally allowed to rely on such a purported intention. Even if these two are eventually married, that does not provide an excuse for their grave sins of fornication beforehand.
A new Gallup Poll released on January 11, 2019, shows that more than two-thirds (69 per cent) of Newchurchers believe that their Newclergy are liars. That number for 2018 is far worse even than the number for 2017, which showed that more than half (52%) of Newchurchers believed that their clergy are liars.
The Gallup Poll attributed the precipitous drop to Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust following "a new global explosion of the scandal and revelations of high-ranking cover-up," implicating Newpope Francis-Bergoglio himself. In the United States, the Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report exposed hundreds of Newchurch presbyters in sex crimes against children and even netted the former Newcardinal of Washington, D.C., Theodore McCarrick, and the current Newcardinal of Washington, D.C., Donald Wuerl. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
True Catholics, the real question is: if Newchurchers think that their Newpope, Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters are a pack of liars, why do they still support the phony "New Mass" and put their money into Newchurch collection plate to fund corruption? A good deal of the guilt and responsibility must be laid at the feet of Newchurch laypeople who commit grave sin by supporting, since the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) to the present day, the horror of rampant paedophilia, embezzlement, and other crimes, let alone a fake Mess, fake sacraments, fake doctrine, and fake morals. Without their attendance and money, Newchurch would not exist.
Actually, the laypeople are finally getting the message. The Gallup Poll showed that attendance at the invalid New Mess hit a new low in 2018. Other polls show that the number of true Catholics attending the Traditional Latin Mass offered by independent priests outside the Newchurch of the New Order has been steadily increasing.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I was raised in the post-Vatican II Newchurch of the New Order and have recently become interested in exploring a more traditional mode of practice. However, before I do so, I wanted to be clear on my personal status, from the the point of view of the true (traditional) Catholic Church. I was baptized into the New Order in 1994, in a church that simulates the English Novus Ordo service only. From a truly Catholic perspective, am I a real Catholic?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
No, you are not a Catholic, but what is called a Newchurcher, that is, a member of the Newchurch of the New Order, which was instituted on November 21, 1964, at the Vatican II Anti-council, in an effort to replace the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church with a Protestantized sect. This avowed purpose was clearly stated at the time, most especially in the detailed book of one of Newchurch's masterminds, Hannibal Bugnini's, entitled La Riforma Liturgica. The New Order is actually a Protestant sect, which has imported Protestant worship, doctrine, and morals. In many cases, Newchurch is actually worse than the Protestant sects, if that were possible.
The question that you need to address is not whether to adopt a "more traditional mode of practice," but whether to become a Catholic. Religion is not a matter of personal preference, but of truth. The various non-Catholic sects, including the New Order sect, all teach opposing views. That is illogical and false because God is truth (1 John 5:6/DRV). Therefore, Newchurch cannot be of God.
As truth is constant, so the true Catholic Church remains constant in its teaching, which dogmatically is founded invariably upon the two fonts of Public Revelation, Sacred Scripture (the "Bible") and Sacred Tradition, based in the teaching of the Apostles.
News is now beginning to leak out that Francis-Bergoglio has approved the consecration of two new bishops for the Fellay-Pagliarani Neo-SSPX on Low Sunday 2019. (In Newchurch, Low Sunday is now Divine "Mercy Sunday," based on the fake Novus Ordo cult of "Divine Mercy").
As we all know, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, the founder of the original traditional Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), and Bishop Antonio de Castro Mayer consecrated four bishops for the Society on June 29, 1988. These were Bernard Tissier de Mallerais, of France; Alfonso de Galarreta of Argentina; and Richard Williamson, of England; with Bernie Fellay, of the Suisse Romande, being added to the list at the last minute when Jean-Michel Faure bowed out on account of his humility. Since then, Williamson abandoned Fellay and his Neo-SSPX because of his dogged opposition to Fellay's plans to sell out the Neo-SSPX to the heretic Newchurch of the New Order.
Recently, Bishop Williamson has revealed that Bishop Tissier de Mallerais has been quite ill lately. Tissier is known to be much more traditional than is Fellay. He is also much older. Fellay and de Galarreta are just under 60; Tissier is well over 70; Williamson is nearing 80. In other words, Williamson has abandoned the Neo-SSPX, and Tissier, isolated and ageing, might become too ill to be an effective Neo-SSPX bishop. The Neo-SSPX is desperate for bishops to maintain its very existence. Instead of doing what its courageous Archbishop-founder did, shunning the heretic Newchurch and doing what was necessary, the Neo-SSPX is going hat in hand to Newchurch for "approval," which, as a heretic sect, it has no authority to give, any more than the Methodists do. The obvious question is: what does Francis-Bergoglio demand in exchange?
The strategy of Newrome and the Fellay-Pagliarani team of traitors seems to be to instate a de-facto "Personal Prelature" in a situation in which it is still too difficult to erect a juridical one. Once they have all the effects of the "Personal Prelature," there will be no reason to refuse it de jure and not to join the Newchurch of the New Order outright. And once this trap has been sprung, and the Neo-SSPX fly has become entangled in Newchurch's lethal web, there will be no escape for Neo-SSPX clergy and laity, who now depend on the already half Novus Ordoized Neo-SSPX.
The water is warming up, and the Neo-SSPX froglets are getting used to it. Before long, they will find themselves in a vat of boiling water, with no escape. Those who have any sense at all will abandon the Neo-SSPX's sinking raft as fast as they can. They can protect the true Catholic Faith only by going independent from the heretic Newchurch of the New Order and its satellite Neo-SSPX.
The TRADITIO Fathers Comment.
We agree entirely with our Roman correspondent. The Fellay-Pagliarani Neo-SSPX is sinking, and the Marxist/Modernist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio wants to take it over in its debilitated state. The Neo-SSPX has already sold out its sacraments (Penance and Matrimony) to Newchurch. Now its bishops are to be Novus Ordo plants. This scenario is exactly what happened to the Society of St. John Vianney (SSJV) in Brazil, which Newchurch destroyed as a traditional group by planting its own New Order bishops within.
Apparently, Fellay, Pagliarani & Co. have learned nothing from the destruction of the Catholic Faith perpetrated by changing to the New Order not overnight, but in small increments so that faithful wouldn't notice. This modus operandi began officially on May 28, 1948, with the appointment by Pope Pius XII of the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini to head a new Pontifical Commission to "Modernize" the Liturgy. That "modernization" led to the destruction and invalidation of the Mass, Divine Office, and Sacraments in the Newchurch of the New Order.
The descent into the black hole of the liturgical "New Order" consisted principally of the following steps that led to the full-blown implementation of the invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New Mass" of 1969 and the anti-traditional and unCatholic "Liturgy of the Hours" of 1970, which replaced the traditional Catholic Divine Office:
Now the Neo-SSPX is falling into the same trap into which clueless Catholics of the 1950s and 1960s fell. At least one could hope that Catholics would have learned from the sellout of the Catholic Faith then, but it appears that the Neo-SSPX has not. One now has to wonder seriously whether Fellay and Pagliarani are just stupid or whether they are deliberately acting as Newchurch's agents to sell out Archbishop Lefebvre's once traditional Society of St. Pius X to the Newchurch heretics.
Newcardinal Donald Wuerl, of Washington, D.C., who was himself exposed as an accomplice to paedophilia in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, by the Pennsylvania Grand Jury has now been outed by the Newpapal Nuncio in Washington, D.C., as a liar to boot. Wuerl claimed to know nothing about former D.C. Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick's sexual assaults for almost five decades up and down the east coast of the United States.
But on January 10, 2018, a 2004 letter from Newcardinal Wuerl himself has come to light, in which Wuerl refers to the Newpapal Nunciio in Washington, D.C., a case of sexual assault perpetrated by Newcardinal McCarrick. Thus, Wuerl knew in 2004, contrary to his previous denial that he knew nothing until 2018, upon stating categorically that "no claim ?- credible or otherwise ?- has been made against [New]cardinal McCarrick during his time here in Washington." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
True Catholics, the Vigano Memoranda of Newarchbishop Carlo Vigano, former Newpapal Nuncio at Washington, fingering both Wuerl and McCarrick, as well as Francis-Bergoglio, have turned out to be right on the money. Vigano is currently in hiding from Francis-Bergoglio's henchmen, who are trying to seek him out for retribution. Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust stinks to high heaven, with now Newcardinals and Francis-Bergoglio completely wrapped in the stench.
Francis-Bergoglio has taken the next step in secularizing Newchurch, which in 1964 abandoned being the Catholic Church. Sex crimes by Newchurch cardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters is out of control. Heresy is rife in Newchurch, including almost daily heretical statements by Bergoglio himself. The fake "New Mess" has been corrupted so badly with clowns, animals, nude "gay" dancers, and other abominations that even the crazy Evangelical megachurches seem tame by comparison.
Yet what has Francis-Bergoglio decided to spend his time on? On January 10, 2019, he announced that he will form Newvatican's first "sports association," dubbed Athletica Vaticana. His irreligious justifications for this madness is quite revealing in their outright paganism:
True Catholics, could it be more clear that the Newchurch, the Newpopes, and the Newvatican are not Catholic, but the enemy of Catholicism? In February 2019 Francis-Bergoglio is supposed to have a worldwide conference in Newrome on Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. If he were sincere, he would be spending day and night on that catastrophe, which has ruined the lives of tens of thousands of children and sent who knows how many Newchurch cardinals, bishops, and presbyters to Hell. But, no, he wants to play impresario for a "sports association." Then let him quit being the heretic Newpope and cede the field for good riddance!
Another corrupt Newchurch organization that passes itself off as "traditional," or at least "conservative," is the notorious Opus Dei. There are numerous reports of how Opus Dei is operated as a cult and how it has harmed its adherents. Michael Walsh, in his book, Opus Dei: An Investigation Into the Secret Society Struggling for Power Within the Roman Catholic Church [Sic], has exposed in detail about the inner workings of Opus Dei.
When Newvatican was near bankruptcy in 1982, Opus Dei bought off the Unsaint Newpope JPII-Wojtyla with 1,000,000,000 USD to become a "Personal Prelature" and to buy Opus Dei's founder, Jose Maria Escriva, a fake Newchurch "sainthood" in 2002. The Opus Dei Awareness Network (ODAN), a collaboration of former members, has exposed the violent practices of the Opus Dei cult. Members were refused a hearing during the nomination for unsainthood of Escriva because Wojtyla had been bought off. Escriva anticipated and developed 30 years in advance the heresies that were proclaimed by the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965).
On January 7, 2019, the Washington Post revealed that an Opus Dei "celebrity" presbyter sexually assaulted a woman, who was secretly paid 1,000,000 USD to keep quiet. Presbyter John McCloskey preyed on the woman, who was receiving "spiritual direction" in the fake Novus Ordo "Rite of Reconciliation" from the presbyter because of marital troubles and spiritual depression. McCloskey attacked her on numerous occasions. Two other women's accusations of sex crimes by the presbyter are currently being investigated. McCloskey came to the Newchurch of the New Order and Opus Dei from Wall Street.
Newchurch knowingly allowed McCloskey to continue his predations. It was McCloskey who prepared the notorious trigamist Newt Gingrich, former Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, for "conversion" to the fake Newchurch. Presbyter McCloskey operated out of Chicago, Washington, D.C., California, Virginia, and England. He has now joined his fellow "celebrity" presbyter on the EWTN Newchurch Cable Network, John Corapi, in being caught in virulent sex crimes. EWTN seems to be a seedbed for this kind of thing. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Washington Post.]
True Catholics, Newchurch knowingly allowed the sex criminal presbyter McCloskwy to continue his predations. Why? Because he brought in too much money to Newchurch and Opus Dei coffers to be fired. After all, the Unsaint Newpope JPII-Wojtyla had been bought off to make the Opus Dei founder a fake Novus Ordo Unsaint. Why wouldn't Newchurch place the extravagant income from "celebrity" presbyters over justice for the victims of its Newclergy's sex crimes?
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I am a Traditional Roman Catholic living in the Czech Republic where the books of the German Benedictine Anselm Grun are very popular. Can you please comment and inform me about Anselm Grun and whether or not his teachings may be cause for concern?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Anselm Grun is not a (traditional) Catholic, but a Newchurcher of the New Order. He was educated in the New Order when he entered the Newbenedictine Abbey at Munsterschwarzach, Germany, in 1964, the year in which the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) established the heretical Newchurch of the New Order to replace the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church. Grun runs the financial operation there for Newchurch.
Grun is associated with the heretical Karl Rahner, who was silenced by Pope John XXIII and declared under suspicion of heresy by the Holy Office. Rahner's heresies inspired, in a major way, the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), which created the heretical Newchurch of the New Order. He worked hand in hand toward that goal with the Modernist Josef Ratzinger, who later became a Newpope of the New Order sect.
Consequently, true Catholics should studiously shun Grun books, as they would other heretical "gurus." It is safest to rely on works that were published before 1950, except in the case of later authors who are explicitly traditional. In cases of unknown authors, consult your traditional priest or confessor for guidance. Many books written after those years are infected with the errors of Modernism and contain particularly gross errors of the Heresy of Modernism, so strongly condemned by Pope St. Pius X as the "aggregation of all heresies."
On January 4, 2019, it came to light that when the case of one of the altar boys sexually assaulted by Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick, of Washington, D.C., came to Newrome, Bergoglio declared it to be "consensual sex." McCarrick had been outed as a virulent paedopile, who committed his predations up and down the east coast of the United States, while Newvatican officials sat on their hands. Yet Bergoglio had refused to expel McCarrick from Newchurch, instead giving the criminal plum positions in his regime.
The case against McCarrick, just one of many, held that he had sexually assaulted a 16-year-old altar boy in the sacristy while preparing for Christmas Mess at St. Patrick's Newcathedral in New York City. He then raped the same boy a year later. Another altar boy came forward to confirm these cases and reveal that he too had been assaulted continuously from age 11 to 18, when McCarrick was a presbyter in New York. These assaults occurred in the confessional constituting the gravest form of sacrilege. Thus, Bergoglio is even now trying to exculpate the criminal paedophile McCarrick, one of Bergoglio's favorites. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's meeting called for February 2019 in Newrome to discuss the sex crimes that are rampant in Newchurch may end up with a call for Bergoglio's own abdication. Now he is suborning sexual assaults in the confessional. It has always been a puzzlement why Bergoglio pushes confession so much, when Newchurch now longer has the sacrament, but only an invalid, Protestantized "Rite of Reconciliation." Maybe now we know Bergoglio pushes it so much!
Here in Spain, Fellay-Pagliarani's Neo-SSPX is finishing construction of what looks like an Islamic-looking, and certainly strikingly Modernist, church. The facade of the church itself appears to resemble a nightclub. When juxtaposed with the atrocious "art" of the Modernist Vatican II New Order sect, the Neo-SSPX church is little or no different.
The Neo-SSPX has picked up the new trend of creating images of the Blessed Virgin (if indeed we can call them that) out of junk and scrap metal. Neo-SSPX bishop Alfonso de Galarreta, now First Assistant to Superior General Davide Pagliarani, appeared smiling for the dedication photographs.
On July 25, 2018, the Neo-SSPX dedicated this church, funded from the donations of Neo-SSPXers, who are probably ignorant of how their hard-earned money is being misspent on Modernist temples that are abhorrent to Catholicism.
On January 4, 2019, sex-crime accusations against a favorite Newbishop of Francis-Bergoglio, Gustavo Zanchetta, became public. The revelation rocked an already tottering Bergoglio regime, as it was Bergoglio himself who placed the Zanchetta in a top position after he had abruptly quit his post in 2017 as Newbishop of Oran, Argentina, because, it is now known, Zanchetta had been involved in sex crimes against young Newseminarians there. Nevertheless, Bergoglio "rehabilitated" him as Newvatican's top Assessor, with the power to manage the Newvatican's vast real-estate and financial holdings.
Newvatican is trying to claim the unbelievable, that Francis-Bergoglio was ignorant of the accusations against his favorite in his inner circle. Yet Bergoglio had appointed Zuchetta to be his Newbishop of Oran as one of Bergoglio's first appointments after his 2013 election as Newpope. Three presbyters have come forward to accuse Zuchetta of the crimes. All three presbyters have claimed that after they reported Zuchetta's crimes, Bergoglio's agents retaliated against them. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio and his henchmen are now playing the same old game. They are trying to cover up the reality by claiming that Zuchetta resigned not because his sex crimes were exposed, but because of undisclosed "health problems." Bergoglio is again trying to play the role of the ridiculous television character Sergeant Schultz, who always claimed: "I know -- nothing!" Bergoglio, however, can't sell his cover-up, because the world won't buy his exposed lies any longer.
At his January 2, 2019, General Audience, Francis-Bergoglio, heavily hit by denunciations even from his own Newcardinals for being an accomplice in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, lashed out against those who "hate their fellow men" or "speak ill of people." In the context, Bergoglio could be referring to nothing other than the strong denunciations of his complicity in exonerating and suborning the paedophile crimes of his Newclergy. It is a theme upon which he has spoken before. The criticism is clearly getting to the man who was lionized in the first year of his Leftist Newpapacy.
How Francis-Bergoglio expressed his point has now led many Newchurchers to join true (traditional) Catholics to believe that the man is not now and has never been a Catholic, of which fact traditional Catholics have always been certain. Bergoglio told true Catholics that if they criticize him, they should "not go to Church" and should "live like atheists." Yet Bergoglio has himself spoken highly of atheists, whom he calls his best friends -- perhaps not surprising for a Marxist. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]
True Catholics, once again the Marxist/Modernist Francis-Bergoglio has displayed his rank hypocrisy. He has himself, on numerous occasions, displayed hatred for true Catholics and slandered them with, to date, 38 vile epithets, including the infamous "fomenters of coprophagia" [eating dung]. Traditional Catholics need to keep pressing his buttons. Obviously, he and his anti-Catholic New Order regime are at the tipping point, and both are on the verge of falling into the abyss.
Many of the traditional Catholic faithful have been saddened by the fact that there has been no traditional Latin Mass near Fatima, Portugal -- only invalid Novus Ordo Messes simulated by Newchurch and Half Novus Ordo Vatican II New Latin Messes of 1962 staged by the Fellay-Pagliarani Neo-SSPX. The Neo-SSPX even deviates from the rubrics of the New Latin Mess by commiting in some localities the sacrilege of proclaiming the Epistle and Gospel at the altar in the vulgar tongue, as well as reciting the Leonine Prayers in the very sanctuary in the vulgar tongue!
Given that deplorable situation, a group of independent traditional Catholics in Portugal took matters into their own hands, heeding the apparition of Our Lady at Fatima: "In Portugal, the dogma of the true faith will always be preserved." This group took the initiative to find a site for an oratory and an independent traditional Catholic priest to offer the True Mass. The Adoration Chapel of the Body and Blood of Our Lord Jesus Christ is now in full operation, offering a fully Traditional Latin Mass near Fatima on a regular basis.
According to the organizer of this Mass: "A handful of people can make a difference. If we could do it, anybody can." All too often traditional Catholics moan about what they do not have. They commit the sin of ingratitude for not thanking God for the many opportunities that they do have. They commit the capital sin of sloth by not taking action to bring the True Mass to others when it is in their power to do so.
When one looks back at 2018, the first fact that needs to be emphasized is that there has been no movement from Newrome toward the Catholic Faith. On the contrary, Newrome has moved even more inexorably away from Sacred Tradition, away from Catholicism, and even away from Christianity under Francis-Bergoglio.
The second fact to emphasize is that the Fellay-Pagliarani Neo-SSPX has not denounced these Newroman movements away from Christianity. On the contrary, Pagliarani, the puppet of Bernie Fellay, has tried to create positive diplomatic relations with Newrome at the same time that Newrome embraces a Satanic paganism. Pagliarani and Fellay have done the exact opposite of what pious founder Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre would have done. They have betrayed Archbishop Lefebvre, and they have betrayed Jesus Christ.
Both parties have altered the situation so that there is now, among the pseudo-traditionalists, a false impression that the Neo-SSPX needs Newrome so as to replenish the supply of Society bishops and to ensure legitimacy, whereas it is the New Mess that is completely illegitimate and doctrinally heretical, and it is the Newchurch bishops who are not Catholic. Did Archbishop Lefebvre seek permission for new bishops for his Society? Quite the opposite. In 1988, he spurned the heretic Newpope "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla and consecrated on his own.
Both parties maneuver so that a de-facto Newchurch Personal Prelature will be "respected" prior to its canonical creation. Newchurch repeats the words "personal prelature" over and over and over again like a mantra. Newchurch will not stop until Archbishop Lefebrvre's original work is subjected to Newcanon 297, under which the Neo-SSPX would need the local Marxist Newbishop's permission to add new apostolates. That subjection to Newchurch would spell the end of the Society over time. Notice also that, even now, Newrome will not admit officially that Society Masses fulfil the Sunday obligation -- as if Newrome had anything to say about it when Newchurch's own Messes are invalid!
Meanwhile, lurking in the background is Newchurch's Congregation on Divine [Sic] Worship and the Sacraments. It plans to vitiate the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II New Latin Mess of 1962 (aka Extraordinary, Motu, and Indult) by forcing into it the Novus Ordo Propers of 1970. We are seeing a new plot in the works: the Society and Newrome conspiring to destroy even the New Latin Mess communities, and then Newrome replacing in steps the New Latin Mass with the full-blown New [Novus Ordo] Mass and putting the Neo-SSPX into a personal-prelature cage, after which Bergoglio's successor will appoint a commissar to decimate what is left of Archbishop Lefebvre's originally traditional group.
Remember the partial suppression of the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) by the twisted Protocol 1411-99? Remember the Franciscans of the Immaculate, the Trappist Monks of Aachen, the Little Sisters of the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Transalpine Redemptorists -- all pseudo-traditionalist groups suppressed by Newrome? Only those who are willingly blind will fail to see that Newrome has always been inexorably opposed to true Catholicism.
On January 2, 2019, CBS News revealed that it has investigated several cases of Newchurch "nuns" charged with sex crimes against girls. Are we seeing the beginning of the lesbian takeover of Newchurch? Even Francis-Bergoglio has been pushing the admission of women to Newchurch's Unholy Orders: as deaconesses and even priestesses.
One of the girl victims has stated that she was "groomed" by a Newchurch "paedophile nun" for a lesbian sex assault. The "nun" plied her with drugs and alcohol while giving her "lesbian sex lessons." Presumably, these lessons were in lieu of teaching New Order catechism, because Newchurch has, by its own admission, essentially given up teaching catechism, and Francis-Bergoglio himself regularly contradicts Newchurch's fake "New Catechism" of 1992.
The Survivors Network of Those Abused by [Presbyters] reports that since the issuance of the Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report in August 2018, which exposed hundreds of paedophile Newchurch cardinals, bishops, and presbyters, at least 18 girls have contacted the organization to report sex crimes against them by paedophile Newchurch "nuns." One girl victim of a lesbian "nun" reported that Newchurch has canon lawyers on retainer to silence child victims of Newclergy sex crimes: "They had canon lawyers on retainer just for people like me. Shut her up, pacify her, tell her you love her, and you'll pray for her, and send her on her way." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by CBS News.]
True Catholics, eventually this girl victim was paid off to keep her mouth shut about Newchurch crimes. However, her Newchurch "nun" assailant remains in good standing in the order. This has been the clear pattern under the three Paedophile Newpopes, JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and now Francis-Bergoglio. The Newchurch of the New Order and its officials have become a criminal syndicate, which law enforcement in the United States, Australia, and elsewhere are hunting down to prosecute as the criminals that they are.
On January 6, 1494, the Feast of the Epiphany of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Fr. Bernardus Buil celebrated the first (Traditional Latin) Mass on the American Continent at La Isabela in what is now the province of Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic, named after Dominicus de Guzm?n, founder of the Order of Preachers, popularly known as the Dominicans (Dominicani) from his name.
It was with the encouragement of the Borgia Pope Alexander VI, otherwise known to history as the "Bad Pope" because of his gross immoralities, that Columbus took missionaries on his second voyage to begin the evangelization of the heathen Indians in the New World.
Fr. Buil was a Dominican friar from Aragon, a region of Spain. Buil accompanied Christopher Columbus on his second voyage to the New World (1493-1494). Festivities of the 525th anniversary of the event conclude on January 5, 2019. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Vatican Press Office.]
True Catholics, in 1494, in spite of being ruled by an immoral pope, the evangelization of the Indian heathens in the Americas to the Catholic Faith was not impeded, but encouraged by the papacy. What makes our own time different is that the current immoral and heretic Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio, has essentially stopped missionary work. After all if you are an oecumenical heretic, who believes that "all religions are equally true" and that "we all worship the same god," what's the point? It is long past time for Bergoglio to shut down Newchurch and let the true Catholic bishops, priests, and laypeople that have been operating outside of it since the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) make the Catholic Church the "institutional" Church once again. But Bergoglio refuses to give up the power and money in which he luxuriates.
On December 28, 2018, Francis-Bergoglio endorsed the heretical Taize Movement, which embraces the Oecumenical Heresy ("we all worship the same god," "all religions are equally true"). Taize is holding its annual year-end European Youth Meeting in Madrid, Spain, from December 28, 2018, to January 1, 2019.
The Taize Community was founded in France in 1940 by the Swiss Protestant "Brother" Roger Schutz. Although he was a professed heretic, the Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger publicly gave him the invalid Novus Ordo cookie, thus committing grave public sacrilege.
Taize is part of the heresy known as "Catholic [Sic] Pentecostalism," the movement that is associated with cult-like, mind-controlling organizations and programmes such as the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine (CCD, which was perfectly traditional before Vatican II, but afterwards was corrupted), Marriage Encounter, the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA), Renew, Focolare, Cursillo, Neo-Catechumenal Way, Legionnaires of Christ/Regnum Christi, Communion and Liberation, Miles Jesu, Wicca (Gaia), and Life Teen.

True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio in his endorsement joined other heretics such as Oecumenical Patriarch Bartholomew of Constantinople, the Secretary General of the World Council of Churches, and the Secretary General of the World Lutheran Federation. We TRADITIO Fathers have often said that the Newchurch of the New Order is Protestant, or worse. This latest action of Bergoglio simply confirms once again that fact.
We TRADITIO Fathers have maintained from the outset that traditional (true) Catholicism and the Newchurch of the New Order are diametrically incompatible. That incompatibility is intrinsic to the constitution of the New Order sect, formed in 1964 by the Vatican II Anti-council to replace the Catholic Church, and cannot be "negotiated" or "compromised" away. No true Catholic can have anything to do with the Newchurch of the New Order, any more than a true Catholic can have anything to do with the Protestant sects. In many ways, the New Order sect is worse than the Protestant sects!
When Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre in 1988 courageously stood up to the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla and consecrated four traditional bishops to maintain the true Catholic Faith outside the anti-Catholic Newchurch, Wojtyla went berserk. No one had expected that the saintly Archbishop would actually take that action, when push came to shove. When he did, Wojtyla was terrified that there would be a schism between the true (traditional) Catholic Church, led by Lefebvre and other independent traditional Catholic bishops, and the fake Newchurch of the New Order. The dirty secret of Newchurch would then be so public as to be undeniable.
So, Wojtyla set up the "Ecclesia Dei" Commission to try to win traditional Catholics to Newchurch. But the Commission has been singularly unsuccessful. Wojtyla's puppet Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) barely grew in, while independent traditional Catholic priests and groups have flourished. Given traditional Catholics' increasing rejection of the New Order sect as fake, Benedict-Ratzinger then tried another ploy. He elevated the discredited "New Latin Mess," the half Novus Ordo Vatican II Mess of 1962, to the rank of "Extraordinary," a Novus Ordo term never used in the two-millennium history of the Catholic Church.
But Ratzinger's move, attempted in his 2007 Motu Proprio Summonrum pontificum" failed as well. After a slight uptick in the New Latin Mess's use in a few Newparishes -- which use was tightly controlled by hostile Newchurch bishops -- such Messes were shut down by the Newdiocesan bishops after just a year to two, so that a relatively paltry number remain. In 2009, even Ratzinger saw the handwriting on the wall and demoted the "Ecclesia Dei" Commission to a mere sub-commission of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith.
Now, according to reports circulating December 27, 2018, Francis-Bergoglio has a Motu Proprio drafted and ready to sign in January 2019 that will essentially dissolve the "Ecclesia Dei" Commission and bury the New Latin Mess of 1962. Bergoglio has already suppressed several groups in Newchurch that have been using the 1962 Mess. This step is logical for Bergoglio and the anti-Catholic Newchurch, which has, over the last thirty years, milked all it can out of deluded pseudo-traditionalists in Newchurch, who cluelessly thought that they could ever find traditional Catholicism in Newchurch.

True Catholics, a foreshadowing of Francis-Bergoglio's imminent action to suppress the New Latin Mess of 1962 was already given when his own Italian [New]Bishops' Conference requested him to suppress the New Latin Mess in Italy. This was clearly a setup by Bergoglio to get the ball rolling against the New Latin Mess worldwide. The end of the "Ecclesia Dei" ploy could be foreseen already in 1988. Now pseudo-traditionalist Newchurchers will be forced to fish or cut bait, to be with Christ or against him. They will have to join the independent Traditional Catholic Movement, also started in 1964 by the courageous Fr. Gommar DePauw, who saw firsthand as a peritus the heresies of the Vatican II Anti-council, and carried on by numerous traditional Catholic priests and bishops in churches, chapels, and oratories through the world, independent of the heretical Newpopes of the New Order.
