The Next Step in the Neo-SSPX's Sellout to Newchurch
As Fellay and Pagliarani Want to Become Baron and Baronet in the New World Order

From: Petrus, the TRADITIO Network's Roman Correspondent
Francis-Bergoglio & Vitus Huonder

Newbishop Vitus Huonder (Right) Will Become Francis-Bergoglio's Operative
To Push the Neo-SSPX into the Arms of the Heretical Newchurch
Huonder Isn't even a Real Bishop
He Was Never Ordained or Consecrated in the Sacrament of Holy Orders
But the Neo-SSPX Is Now Effectively down to Just Two Bishops
So It Will Implicitly Recognize the Legitimacy of the (Invalid) Newchurch "Sacraments"
And the Heretical and Pagan Newpopes
So That Fellay and Pagliarani Can Wear Novus Ordo Purple Socks with Holes in Them

The next step has been taken in the capitulation of the Fellay/Pagliarani Neo-SSPX. It all started in 2009, when Benedict- Ratzinger pretended to lift the Novus Ordo "excommunications" that had been declared by JPII-Wojtyla in 1988. They were pretended because the 1988 declaration was void, owing to the operation of Moral Law in a state of necessity and even by the provisions of the (invalid) 1983 Newcode of Canon Law of 1983. Of course, the "excommunication" canard is the trick used in Newrome's illusion, its "smoke and mirrors."

Eventually, the Neo-SSPX will run out of bishops and will need more. This is what has happened by 2019. One of the original bishops (Richard Williamson) abandoned the Newsociety in 2012. A second bishop (Bernard Tissier de Mallerais) is now almost 74 and is said to be ailing. What to do? Two bishops are really not sufficient to superintend some 700 Neo-SSPX priest-presbyters.

But Francis-Bergoglio, the Marxist/Modernist heretic, has the answer. A retired Newchurch bishop, Vitus Huonder of Chur, Switzerland, will come to the rescue. Together with Neo-SSPX Bishops Bernie Fellay and Alfonso de Galarreta, Huonder will "episcopate" two of the Newsociety's compromisers. These will likely be the new Superior-General, Davide Pagliarani, and Christian Bouchacourt, the gauleiter who dismissed the best Neo-SSPX priest-presbyters in France for being "too traditional."

Presumably, a "consecration" affair will now be scheduled, possibly for as early as the end of June 2019, the customary time (and also because it would echo founder Archbishop Lefebvre's co-consecrations of June 29, 1988). Of course, Newrome may drag this process out into autumn to make Fellay and Pagliarani drool for it all the more. It's all in the bag, but leaves a question or two. First of all, Newbishop Huonder, who retired from Chur on May 20, 2019, was created a Novus Ordo presbyter in 1971 and installed as a Newbishop in 2007 -- both under the invalid Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968. Yet the Novus Ordo-leaning Neo-SSPX seems now to recognize the legitimacy of the (invalid) Newchurch "sacraments" and implicitly indicates that it needs the heretical Newchurch's permission to do anything, subject to the heretical and pagan Newpopes.

Fellay and Pagliarani are drooling for the opportunity to become part of Newchurch, Inc., the biggest real estate empire on earth. They want to manage their own bailiwick in it as the Barony of St. Pius X. They want to become, respectively, Baron and Baronet in the New World Order, complete with Novus Ordo purple socks to prove it. Traditional Catholic priests in the Neo-SSPX need to follow the example of Fr. Bröhwiller, of Switzerland, who recently defected from the Neo-SSPX to go independent. A sacrifice will be needed to defect from the compromised Newsociety, but better a small sacrifice today than a huge one tomorrow. Truly traditional Catholic priests in the Neo-SSPX are much better off giving up their chapels and salaries and pensions and dental plans now than their souls later.

Newchurch's False Oecumenism Has Been Thwarted
By a Major New Schism within the Eastern Orthodox Church

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Francis-Bergoglio & Bartholomew

Francis-Bergoglio Bows in Obeisance
To the Schismatic "Oecumenical" Patriarch Bartholomew
Bergoglio Has Said that He Doesn't Like the Papacy
And Wants to Be "Oecumenical" with All the Other Patriarchs
However, the Worst Schism in the Eastern Orthodox Church
Since the Catholic-Orthodox Split of 1094
Has Caused a Shutdown of "Theological Dialogue"
Between the Orthodox and Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch

So Fellay/Pagliarani Will Recognize

The so-called Oecumenical Patriarch of the Orthodox Church, Bartholomew of Constantinople, has provoked a schism within the Eastern Orthodox Church by recognizing the independent Orthodox Church of the Ukraine in January 2019. The Patriarch of the Russian Orthodox Church, Kirill of Moscow, has excommunicated Bartholomew and his followers because the Russian Orthodox Church considers the Ukraine part of its own territory. This new schism has been described as the most significant fracture since the original break between the Catholics and Orthodox in 1054.

As of May 17, 2019, delegates from the Russian Orthodox Church, which is the largest Orthodox Christian body, have withdrawn from common projects. The schism has caused a shutdown of "theological dialogue" between the Orthodox and Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order. This dialogue has been working to redefine the Roman papacy so that the Orthodox can accept the pope not as supreme, but as merely a primus inter pares, as Patriarch of Rome, on a level with all the Orthodox Patriarchs. Ex-Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger and current Newpope Francis-Bergoglio have been hot to trot in this heretical direction. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]

True Catholics, Bartholomew is not an "oecumenical" patriarch, recognized by all the other patriarchs. As time has gone along, more and more of the Eastern Orthodox are going into schism from him because the consider him a Leftist. The same is happening with respect to Francis-Bergoglio, whom more and more Catholics are considering a Leftist and a heretic, even calling for his deposition. As these leaders continue to depart from Scripture and Tradition, they are losing more and more of the once faithful, who do not regard them as legitimate.

Austrian Presbyter Accused of Attempted Rape of a Nun in "Confession"
Has Been Acquitted by Francis-Bergoglio's Kangaroo Court

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Herman Geissler

Austrian Presbyter Hermann Geissler
Was Accused by a Novus Ordo "Nun"
Of Attempting to Rape Her during a "Confession"
Francis-Bergoglio Turned the Case Over
To a Kangaroo Court under His Direct Control
Not Surprisingly, Geissler Was Acquitted
Whether He Was Guilty or Not
Austrian and German Newchurchers Are Outraged

Five members of the Apostolic Signatura court directly controlled by Francis-Bergoglio has let Austrian presbyter Hermann Geissler off on charges of attempting to rape a Newchurch nun during a Novus Ordo "confession" in 2009. It had scandalously taken eight years for Benedict-Ratzinger and then Francis-Bergoglio to address the serious charge. The nun was a member of Geissler's own German community, Familia Spiritualis Opus. That community had been investigated in 2013 and 2014 and forced to reorganize to expel corruption.

The verdict was rendered on May 17, 2019. Geissler had already stepped down on January 29, 2019, as head of the Doctrinal Department of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith since 2009. The verdict set off protests among Austrian and German Newchurchers, as Austrian Newcardinal Christoph Schonborn had already stated on television that he believed the nun. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Zenit News Service.]

True Catholics, whether the verdict was correct or not, this was a kangaroo trial, far from objective. It is Newchurch judging its own, one of the many flaws in Francis-Bergoglio's May 7, 2019, Motu Proprio Vos estis sal terrae, which fails to correct the paedophile crimes perpetrated by Newchurch presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals. Other professional groups, such as physicians and lawyers, have determined that they are not in a position to judge their own justly and so have turned over such trials to judges outside their professions. Newchurch can't take the risk. That is why the notorious case of presbyter Geissler was handled "in house," where Bergoglio could control the verdict.

Fox News's Poster-boy Presbyter Wants to Leave the Newchurch Clergy
He Wants to Break His Vows and Marry, but Claims to Have No Paramour -- Yet

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Jonathan Morris

Jonathan Morris, Fox News's Presbyter on Staff
Who Hasn't Met a Paedophile Newpope He Doesn't Like
Has Announced that He Is Leaving the Newchurch Presbyterate
And That His Decision to Leave Has Filled Him "with Profound Joy"
Morris Was a Member of the Infamous Legionaries of Christ
Whose Founder Was Outed as a Rapist of Boys, Girls, Men, and Women
Including His Own Illegitimate Children by a Paramour
On Fox News Morris Never Failed to Support
The Paedophile Programme of Newchurch's Paedophile Newpopes

If you watch the highly-rated "Fox and Friends" on cable television's Fox News Sunday mornings, you have seen a fancily-dressed presbyter who praises the Marxist/Modernist Francis-Bergoglio to the heavens. Jonathan Morris is now asking the same Bergoglio to let him leave the Novus Ordo clergy to marry, though he claims that he does not yet have a paramour. In a May 17, 2019, statement, Morris said that his decision to leave the Novus Ordo presbyterate has filled him “with newfound joy." Morris appeared on several television networks and was a theological advisor on the 2004 film, The Passion of the Christ.

Morris was a member of the Legionaries of Christ, whose head was the pervert Marcial Maciel, a favorite of the First Paedophile Newpope, JPII-Wojtyla. Maciel raped boys and girl, men and women, and lived with a paramour who bore him several illegitimate children, whom he also raped. Maciel was died in exile in 2008. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Crux News Service.]

True Catholics, when Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick, of Washington, D.C., was outed as paedophile predator of children and Newseminarians for decades up and down the east coast of the United States, and Francis-Bergoglio was denounced around for his inaction in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, Morris supported the Third Paedophile Newpope Bergoglio. His flawed morality is completely Newchurch, in which he promises to remain as a layman. Given how little he regarded his Novus Ordo installation oath to God, don't put any stock in Morris's promises.

Sister Superior Leaves Fellay-Pagliarani's Neo-SSPX
She Could Not in Good Conscience Accept a Newbishop Who Blasphemously Worships with Infidels

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Richard Egan

Heretic Newchurch Bishop Philip Egan, of Portsmouth, England
Simulates the Invalid Novus Ordo Mess
The Neo-SSPX Chiefs Bernie Fellay and Davide Pagliarani Ordered
The Sister Superior of the Local Neo-SSPX School
To Accept and Publicly Pray for Egan
After He Had Blasphemously Worshiped with Infidels
Sister Mary Elizabeth, with Her Sisters, Resigned in Conscience
And Has Now Found Sanctuary at the Mission
Of an Independent Traditional Catholic Priest

The repercussions of the Neo-SSPX's Sister Superior resigning her post because she could not in good conscience receive the Newchurch bishop at St. Martin's Neo-SSPX K-12 School in Berghclere, England. In addition to being a heretic bishop of the New Order, Philip Egan publicly worships on Fridays in a Mohammedans mosque. She also rejected the April 2017 "marriage deal" in which Francis-Bergoglio took control of Neo-SSPX marriages and is administering them according to Modernist principles. He had already taken control of the Neo-SSPX's "confessions. These takeovers were approved by the Neo-SSPX leadership of Bernie Fellay and his puppet, David Pagliarani, the Neo-SSPX's new Superior General..

Sr. Mary Elizabeth explained her resignation in an April 4, 2019, letter to parents of the Neo-SSPX school that she headed. She had been a nun in the Neo-SSPX for 25 years after having received the habit of the Oblate sisters. She has now found sanctuary at the Mission of an independent traditional Catholic priest in England. Sister Mary Elizabeth wrote to the now-tottering Neo-SSPX parents:

More and more we were told that the Catholic Church and the official Church [i.e., the Newchurch of the New Order] are one and the same thing, both being visible, whereas the profession of the true Faith is the first criterion for being a member of the Catholic Church, a criterion that Modernist bishops, for instance, do not match. I started to feel very uneasy with belonging to the [Neo-SSPX] Society, because it meant supporting these new ideas that Archbishop Lefebvre [founder of the original, traditional SSPX] had clearly refuted and against which he had warned us many times in plain language.

Sister Mary Elizabeth went on to reveal that local officials of the Neo-SSPX had been given their marching orders: Novus Ordo bishops were to be accepted if they were "friendly toward tradition" (whatever that means!). The local officials were also ordered to collaborate with such Novus Ordo personnel. They were also forced to pray publicly by name for the heretic Newchurch bishops as if they were valid. (Newchurch bishops are not valid because they have never been consecrated in the Sacrament of Holy Orders, merely "installed" under the invalid Protestantized 1968 Ordinal after the Vatican II Anti-council.)

True Catholics, not only the Sister Superior but also her nuns have turned their back on the Fellay-Pagliarani corruption of Archbishop Lefebvre's original Society of St. Pius X. In 2019, it seems that many Newchurchers are finally beginning to get the message. That is why thousands, including a number of prominent Newchurch theologians, have now officially called on the Newchurch bishops as a group to depose Francis-Bergoglio as a "heretic" for his persistent public denial of several dogmatic Catholic teachings and his adherence to Marxism/Modernism.

Newchurch, Awash in Mortal Sins against the Sixth Commandment of God
Has Now Been Caught in Mortal Sins against the Third Commandment of God

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Francis-Bergoglio Desecrates the Altar
Of St. Mary Major Archbasilica in Rome
By Placing a Profane Soccer Ball on Its Historic Altar
Now It Has Been Revealed that Newdioceses Have Been Scheduling
Mandatory Sports Practices for Its Newparochial Students on Sundays
Even the Protestants and the Jews Do Not Permit
School Sports Practices on Their Holydays
Newchurch Has Been Exposed as Now Even Worse
Than Protestantism

It probably will come as a surprise to many that the Newchurch of the New Order has been scheduling mandatory sports practices on Sunday morning, contrary to God's Third Commandment: "Thou shalt keep holy the Lord's Day." Newarchbishop Allen Vigneron, Newarchbishop of Detroit, Michigan, admitted on May 15, 2019, that he has been scheduling required sports practices for his Newparochial grammar and high schools on Sundays. He acknowledged that "Sunday has slowly lost its pride of place in the [New]archdiocese of Detroit." Vigneron, when Newbishop of Oakland, California, caused scandal by proudly displaying in his Newcathedral's "sanctuary" a large crucifix with the Crucified's hair parted like a fop and without His crown of thorns.

Attendance at the Novus Ordo Mess in Detroit has been sinking like a rock, just as it has in other cities throughout the world. It doesn't seem that Al Vigneron is "getting religion." More likely, he was terrified by the lack of Mess attendance, which means lack of collection monies coming to him and his Marxist/Modernist crony, Francis-Bergoglio. Therefore, Vigneron has canceled the mandatory sports practices on Sunday starting with the 2019-2020 school year. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

True Catholics, showing up Newchurch as now even worse than Protestantism, several Protestant schools, including Calvinist schools, prohibit sports practices on Sundays. Even Detroit's Jewish Academy does not permit sports practices from sunset Friday to sunset Saturday, the Jewish Sabbath. So far has the New Order sect's morality fallen that it has even officially encouraged its members to violate the Third Commandment of God, not to speak of the Sixth.

Newchurch Organizations Push for "De-canonization" of First Paedophile Newpope
JPII-Wojtyla Was a Criminal, Not a Saint, They Say

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
JPII-Wojtyla & Bernard Law

In Spite of the Fact that the Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla (Left)
Had Announced a "Zero Tolerance Policy"
He Refused to Fire the First Paedophile Newcardinal Bernard Law
When Law's Complicity in the Crimes Was Exposed
By a 2002 Boston Globe Investigative Report
Which First Broke Open to the Public in 2002
Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust
Within a Week the Newchurchers of Boston Had Sent Law Packing
Now a Movement Is Afoot to "De-canonize" Wojtyla
Who Was Made a Novus Ordo Saint in 2014 in a Fake Process

Just as we TRADITIO Fathers had predicted when Newchurch invalidated the traditional canonization process and substituted a Novus Ordo "con-anization" (think "con") process, it would not be long before there would be an outcry against one of the phony "Unsaints" named under the invalid new procedure. Ironically, it was the very Newpope who perpetrated this fraud in 1983, JPII-Wojtyla, whose "de-canonization" is now being called for. (For further information on this topic, 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 "Canonizations -- New Order."

A number of Newchurch organizations are now calling for JPII-Wojtyla to be removed from the list of Novus Ordo "Unsaints," to which he had been added in 2014 by the Third Paedophile Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio, because Wojtyla failed to address the crimes of his paedophile presbyters and Newbishops when paedophilia became widespread among the Newchurch clergy in the 1980s, as subsequent statistics have now proven. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K.'s The Tablet.]

In the most egregious case, JPII-Wojtyla had announced a "zero tolerance policy" and yet refused to fire his Newcardinal of Boston, Massachusetts, when Bernard Law's complicity in the crimes was exposed by a Boston Globe investigative report which first broke open to public in 2002 Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. Wojtyla simply sent Law back to Boston to continue his paedophile cover-up policy. But the Newchurchers of Boston had had enough of the paedopohile Newcardinal. They protested and picketed him everywhere he went, and within a week he was gone.

True Catholics, this case also proves that it is not just the Newpopes and their henchmen who are responsible for the paedophile crimes, but the Newchurchers themselves. If they wanted to get rid of the criminal Newchurch clergy in their midst, they could easy do so. Instead, they stick their head in the sand and allow their children to be raped and sodomized through their fault, their fault, their most grievous fault.

Francis-Bergoglio Refuses to Confirm Medjugorje "Apparitions"
Yet He Is Allowing Fake Pilgrimages to Rake in the Tourist Money

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Stop the Fake Pilgrimages to Medjugorje!, Says the Local Newbishop
Ratko Peric Stated Categorically:
"There Have Been No Apparitions of Our Lady in Medjugorje"
And that They Are a Manipulation of Fake Visionaries and Presbyters
Who Benefit Financially from the Duped Newchurchers
Now Francis-Bergoglio, Who Refuses to Confirm the "Apparitions"
Is Nevertheless Allowing Public Pilgrimages There
To Extort Money from Clueless Tourists

Along with all its other scams, Newchurch has become a tourist agency for fakery. The rushed and unsupported ("subito") declaration of the heretical First Paedophile Newpope, JPII-Wojtyla, as a fake Novus Ordo "saint" -- what we call an "Unsaint" -- was effected at least in part by the publicly-expressed desire of the Polish government to increase tourism to Poland. They even wanted to cut Wojtyla's heart out and show it off to tourists in Krakow.

Now, on May 12, 2019, Francis-Bergoglio has entered the sweepstakes on the fake "apparition" site of Medjugorje in the former Yugoslavia. There are so many proofs of its phoniness that even Newchurch can't bring itself to accept it. Yet it rakes in the tourists -- and thus money -- so Newchurch can't disavow its cash cow. So, Bergoglio has tried to have the best of both worlds. He won't officially accept the fake "apparitions," but he has allowed Newchurch dioceses and parishes to organize public tours there. Previously, only individuals in a private capacity could go. In other words, Bergoglio has perpetrated a scam on his Newchurchers. Bergoglio himself admits that he is perpetrating this fraud for the purpose of "organizing pilgrimages to Medjugorje" -- that is, to rake in tourist dollars from tour groups. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Zenit News Agency.]

True Catholics, we are informed by our Roman correspondent that presbyter Vlasic, the Newfranciscan who concocted these fake "apparitions," was a paedophile. It all fits, doesn't it? Fakery and avarice are hallmarks of Newchuch and its corrupt officials, right up to the top dog.

2019 Statistics Show Newchurch Sinking Rapidly in the U.S.
Novus Ordo Mess Attendance and Fake Sacraments Are Down by a Half to Two-thirds

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Newchurch Sinks

New 2019 Statistics from Newchurch Itself
Show that Its Mess and "Sacraments" Are Being Abandoned
By a Half to Two-Thirds
It Has Taken Fifty Years (1969-2019), but Now the Heretical Newpopes
Paul VI-Montini, JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio
Who Swore Allegiance to the Blasphemous Vatican II Anti-council
Are Seeing Their Fake Newchurch Sect Crashing and Burning

2019 is the fiftieth anniversary of the full-blown, Protestant-Masonic-Pagan, invalid "New Mess," which was generated from the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) and was fabricated principally by the Chief Architect of the New Liturgy, the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini. Here are the statistics, just released for the Unioted States by the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate, seated at Newchurch's own George Washington University in Washington, D.C.:

                                   1970          2018          Percentage
Infant "Initiations"               1,089,154     615,119       Down 43.5
Adult "Initiations"                84,534        39,660        Down 53.1
Weddings                           426,309       143,082       Down 66.4
Ordinations                        805           518           Down 35.7
Presbyters                         59,192        36,580        Down 61.8
Sisters                            160,931       44,117        Down 72.6
Percentage Attending Mess Weekly   54.9          21.1          Down 61.6

Even at that, Newchurch's statistics are known to be notoriously "cooked." For example, estimates of New Mess attendance are generally found by non-Newchurch sources to be closer to 10 per cent, half of what is reported by biased Newchurch sources.

It is clear that hatred of the "New Mess" is growing and that Newchurchers are simply refusing to go. Unfortunately, Newchurch and its heretical Newpopes Paul VI-Montini, JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio have already so poisoned the minds of Newchurchers against the true Mass that most Newchurchers will simply drop out rather than return to the true Mass, the Traditional Latin Mass that is offered by bishops and priests independent of the Newchurch of the New Order.

In addition, Newchurch has sold out Catholic doctrine and morals, that is to say, Christ's doctrine to appeal to "modernity," just as many mainline (Leftist) Protestant denominations have, who approve of homosexuality, divorce, the oecumenical heresy ("we all worship the same god"; "all religions are equally true"), etc. As a result, both Newchurch and mainline Protestantism are sinking rapidly. Yet Christ Himself taught the truth regardless of how many people turned their back on his teaching. He did not water down his teaching, for example, on the Holy Eucharist. The Gospels tell us: "After this [teaching on the Holy Eucharist], many of his disciples went back and walked no more with him" (John 6:67).

True Catholics, criminals often think that they can "get away" with their crimes. In a minority of cases, some do escape justice in this world and have to face a worse judgment in the next. But in the majority of cases, criminals pay the price in this life. Thus is the case with the heretical Newpopes Paul VI-Montini, JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio, who swore allegiance to the blasphemous Vatican II Anti-council. It has taken fifty years, but now they are feeling the judgment of God in this world against their fake Newchurch of the New Order, with its fake Mess, sacraments, doctrine, and morals.

Newchurch's Desperate Efforts
To Save Its Precipitously-declining Membership
By Homosexualizing Its Churches Has Failed Badly
Now a German University Study Has Shown
That Newchurch Will Be Cut in Half in Less than a Generation
Newchurch Is Now Paying a High Price Indeed
For Its Sacrileges, Heresies, and Immoral Crimes: Its Own Demise
Nevertheless, Francis-Bergoglio Still Can't See the Handwriting on the Wall
He Has Entered into a Blasphemous Covenant with the Mohammedans
Saying that Islam and Newchurch Are Essentially the Same Religion

A new study by the University of Freiburg shows that the German Newchurchers will be cut in half by 2060. The researchers reached this conclusion from indicators that are also shared by Newchurch in many other countries:

  1. the dwindling number of Baptisms, which since 1970 have been called mere "Initiations" in Newchurch
  2. the departure of numerous German Newchurchers from formal religious enrollment
  3. the declining birthrate because of abortion and rampant artificial contraception
  4. the precipitous decrease in those who pay the Church tax (kirkensteuer)

One Newchurch bishop predicted: "At the latest in ten years, the church tax receipts will collapse." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]

True Catholics, Newchurch is now paying a high price indeed for its sacrileges, heresies, and immoral crimes: its own demise. Nevertheless, Francis-Bergoglio still can't see the handwriting on the wall. He has entered into a blasphemous covenant with the Mohammedans saying Islam and Newchurch are essentially the same religion: they worship the same god, and all religious are equal in the heretical Newchurch of the New Order. The sooner Newchurch gets divine justice and collapses, the sooner true Catholics -- traditional Catholics -- can start the work of rebuilding the Catholic Church from the ground up on the foundation of Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition.

Were Ever Ordained in the Early Church
But That Fact Doesn't Stop the Marxist/Modernist Newpope
He Has Not Given up His Desire to Install Them
If He Wants Something for His Marxist/Modernist Purposes
He Will Override the Facts and even History

On May 7, 2019, Francis-Bergoglio announced that although his Commission of six men and six women cannot find historical justification for the installation (Newchurch has not validly ordained Newclergy since adoption of the Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968) of deaconesses, he has not given up his desire to install them. Even he had to admit: “Fundamentally, there is no certainty that it was an ordination with the same form, in the same purpose as male ordination."

A 2002 document published by Newchurch's International Theological Commission concluded that deaconesses in the early Church had not been equivalent to male deacons. They had “no liturgical function,” nor a sacramental one. There were in the early church unordained female assistants who, out of modesty, assisted with the dunking of women in full-immersion baptism. These women lived in a manner similar to nuns. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

True Catholics, here goes Newchurch again, round and round. Francis-Bergoglio cannot accept the historical evidence in front of his own face. If he wants something for his Marxist/Modernist purposes, he will override the facts and even history. This is how Marxist/Modernists, who rule the Newpapacy and the Newchurch, operate: by deception and fraud.

Canadian Newbishops Withdraw Support from Its Pro-life Organization
Whose Leader Courageously Signed Letter with 2,000 to Depose Francis-Bergoglio as a "Heretic"

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Canadian Newbishops with Imams

Newchurch Canadian Bishops
Here Shown in a Joint Meeting with Infidel Imams
Are Turning against the Pro-life Movement in Canada
Because the Leader of the Pro-life Movement Signed a Letter
With 2,000 Other Newchurch Leaders
To Depose Francis-Bergoglio as a "Heretic"
Since the Renaissance No Purported Pope
Has Been Called a Heretic
By So Many Church Leaders

Now we begin to see how Newchurch bishops are not really "pro life" at all. When the leader of Quebec's leading pro-life organization signed a petition, along with 2,000 other Newchurch theologians, academics, and leaders to call for the deposition Francis-Bergoglio as a "heretic" for his anti-Catholic positions on doctrinal and moral issues. As a result, the President of the Assembly of Catholic [Sic] Bishops of Quebec, Noel Simard, stood up for the heretic Newpope against the "pro life" movement and withdrew funds from the Canadian pro-life organization. Francis-Bergoglio has, among other anti-Catholic teachings, watered down Newchurch's support for the movement against abortion and the right to life for all human beings.

Georges Buschemi, who was the chief organizer of the 2019 National March for Life in Ottawa. is courageously standing up for Catholic doctrine and morals against the Marxist/Modernist heretic Francis-Bergoglio. Buschemi said that he knew that signing the letter with 2,000 other Newchurch leaders would make him the target of the (invalid) Newchurch bishops, but went on: "The resolution of the crisis in the [New]church is more important. The [New]church is responsible for teaching true faith and true morality to every human person. When its leader fails, the whole planet suffers, not only Catholics or pro-life." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

True Catholics, Pro-life Leader Georges Buscemi's courageous stance puts the priority where it should be: on Catholic doctrine and morality, not Newchurch ecclesiastical politics in the Newroman swamp. His stance, along with 2,000 other Newchurch leaders, shows just how far Francis-Bergoglio's regime has fallen and just how much his disrepute for immorality has increased. Since the Renaissance no purported pope has been called a heretic by so many Church leaders. Naturally, the Newchurch bishops, who have themselves been the leaders in the immoral cover-up of Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, would squirm when their potentate Bergoglio is called out publicly for the heretic that he is. Newchurch fits exactly Our Lord's prophecy in His Parable of the House Built on Sand: "And the rain fell, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and they beat upon that house, and it fell, and great was the fall thereof" (Matthew 7:27/DRV).

Francis-Bergoglio Issues "CYA" Document on Newchurch's Sex Crimes
Seventeen Years after They First Came to Light - Much Too Little and Much Too Late

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Francis-Bergoglio Issues "Cover Your Ass" Motu Proprio
That Does Essentially Nothing
To Stop Rampant Paedophilia in Newchurch
Vos Estis Sal Terrae Does Not Provide for Public Notification
Nor Mandatory Reporting of Crimes to Civil Authorities
Nor Independent Investigations and Trials
But Allows a Credibly-accused Presbyter or Newbishop
To Continue Committing Crimes while His Case Is Being "Investigated"

On May 7, 2019, seventeen years after Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust first came to light, Francis-Bergoglio finally got around to issuing what is known as a CYA ("Cover Your Ass") document for the file. The Motu Proprio, entitled Vos Estis Lux Mundi, contains a mere nineteen terse articles. The document isn't even effective yet because it hasn't been issued in its official Latin form. Apparently, Bergoglio wanted to dash it off in haste and get it off his desk without further thought.

Many of the articles described in the document are meant to protect the criminal Newclergy and criminal Newchurch, not the child victims:

  1. Article 1: The object of the Motu Proprio is "vulnerable persons," so defined as to exclude condemnation of "consensual" acts of sodomy by Newchurch's adult clergy and to exclude the "production, exhibition, possession, or distribution" of or "participation" in pornography by Newchurch's adult clergy.
  2. Article 2: Data are to be kept confidential from the public. This provision has been a seriously denounced by the victims and their parents, that they were never informed when Newchurch posted paedophiles to Newchurch parishes and schools.
  3. Article 3: There is no mandatory provision for reporting paedophile crimes to civil authorities.
  4. Articles 7-9: Newchurch is to investigate its own crimes, without the obligation of relying on an independent, objective judge. Victims have pointed to the absence of an independent judge as a major flaw in Newchurch's proceedings, leading to cover-ups instead of justice.
  5. Article 12: The accused presbyter or Newbishop, even when "credibly accused," is to be presumed innocent, so that he may continue to operate his perversions while a Newchurch "investigation" is going on. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

True Catholics, there is no indication that this document portends any real change in Francis-Bergoglio's and Newchurch's persistent efforts to cover up sex crimes within its perverted Newclergy, known for its sacrileges, heresies, and immoralities. This document essentially does nothing to banish vigorously the real problem of rampant paedophilia in Newchurch. At that, we have to wonder why even these paltry provisions weren't already in place under the First Paedophile Newpope JPII-Wojtyla (1978-2005), the Second Paedophile Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger (2005-2013), and the six years of the Third Paedophile Newpope Francis-Bergoglio (2013-). In sum, this document is not worth the paper upon which it is printed. It patent purpose is to cover Bergoglio's copious derriere.

New British Royal Baby "Archie" Receives No Christian Name
As Protestantism Goes Pagan, and Newchurch Has Already Gone Protestant

From: Petrus Romanus, the TRADITIO Network's Roman Correspondent
Meghan, Harry & Archie

The New Royal Baby "Archie" Is Given a Non-Christian Name
Breaking a Christian Practice Going back a Millennium
The Universal Law of the Catholic Church Is that a Christian Child
Must Be Given the Name of a Saint or a Virtue
The Anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order
Which Is, for All Intents and Purposes, a Protestant/Pagan Sect
Abolished the Catholic Requirement for Itself in 1970
That Baptized or Confirmed Catholics Must Have a Christian Name

In the birth of the new royal baby to Harry Windsor and Meghan Markle, the British monarchy has spurned Christianity, although nominally the royal family is supposed to be heretical Protestant Anglican. The baby is to be called Master Archie Harrison of Sussex, and he is not to be accorded his father's courtesy title of Earl Dumbarton. In every way, this news about the baby points to the anti-Christian revolution now rampant everywhere, even in officially Protestant England.

First of all, Archibald is not listed as a Saint in the Martyrologium Romanum nor is Harrison nor is "Archie" standing as a proper name rather than as a diminutive. So the child will have no Christian name. Not surprising, given that his mother was not even baptized at the time of her natural marriage to Mr. Trevor Engelson. That natural marriage has also never been validly dissolved, merely terminated by the act of a civil court, which has no valid religious force. As a result, His Royal Highness, The Prince Henry, Duke of Sussex, is living with a paramour, as the execrable Henry VIII lived with the trollop Anne Boleyn, mother of Elizabeth I. The child's mother is not his father's wife: she is Mrs. Trevor Engelson. The new baby cannot take the title and style and attribute of a Prince because he is the son of a younger son of a sovereign. So he gets no title at all except the traditional Master, to be shed when he turns twelve.

The Newchurch of the New Order, founded in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council to replace the Catholic Church, almost from its inception rejected traditional Catholic practice in naming children. In 1970, Newchurch abolished the requirement that a child be given a baptismal name of a Saint or a virtue (e.g., Elizabeth or Grace or Charles). In 1971, Newchurch abolished the requirement that a confirmand be given a Christian confirmation name. The "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla's heretical 1983 Newcode of Canon Law confirmed these changes. As to the rules of the Anglican sect, who can say? The Church of England says that it is "in communion with" the Episcopal Church of Scotland which, in turn, simulates marriages for sodomite couples. So anything goes for the Church of England.

The requirement that a child be baptized in a name dedicated to a Saint or a virtue goes back in universal law to the thirteenth century, and much earlier in binding local laws. In the early centuries pagans were completely renamed after Saints when they were baptized. All of this points to an overt rebellion against Christianity in any form. As the Protestants go pagan, so the Newchurch Neocons have already gone Protestant and are rapidly moving towards paganism as well.

Bishop Fulton Sheen's Peripatetic Corpse to Be Moved Again
New York's Highest Court Invalidates His Own Will to Serve Tourism Interests

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Fulton Sheen

Bishop Fulton Sheen's New Order Funeral in 1979
Sheen Had Been a Radio and Television "Star"
In American Catholicism since 1930
So Various Newchurch Agencies Have Been Fighting
Over His Body for Publicity and Tourism Purposes since His Death
Now the Highest Court in New York State Has Declared
That Sheen's Own Directions in His Will Be Ignored
And His Body Be Moved out of New York to Peoria, Illinois
Sheen Was Originally Catholic, but Then Joined the Heresies and Sacrileges
Of the Vatican II Anti-council, a Decision that He Partially Regretted in Later Life

It may be that the final chapter has been written in the putrid saga of the peripatetic corpse of Bishop Fulton Sheen (1895-1979), the American Catholic Church's best-known orator, radio ("The Catholic Hour") and television ("Life Is Worth Living") personality from 1930-1968. Sheen had been an auxiliary bishop in New York City (1951-1956) and archbishop in Rochester, New York (1966-1969). On May 6, 2019, the Court of Appeals, New York State's highest court, ruled that Sheen's own directions for his burial in New York City could be ignored, and his corpse shipped back to Peoria, Illinois, near his birthplace. Sheen's own direction, memorialized in his will, that he be buried in New York City's Calvary Cemetery, had already been overridden when Newchurch absconded with his corpse and entombed it in St. Patrick's Cathedral in Manhattan in order to draw more tourists to that location.

Newchurch, which is fast sinking into gross moral scandals and corruption, needs "stars" like Sheen to help it maintain its head above water. That is why Newchurch in great haste made a Novus Ordo "Unsaint" out of the half-Hindu Mother Theresa of Calcutta and the Second Paedophile Newpope, JPII-Wojtyla. Newchurch was in the process of fabricating a case for Sheen when court proceedings brought about a suspension of those efforts in 2014. It has been reported that already Newchurch is engineering the required fake "miracle" for Sheen.

True Catholics, Bishop Sheen abandoned the Catholic Faith at the Vatican II Anti-council and joined the heresies and sacrileges there. In his later years he rejected some, but not all, of the heresies and sacrileges that came out of that Anti-council. Since 1983, when Newchurch grossly watered down the qualification to become a Novus Ordo "Unsaint," any Tom, Dick, or Harriet, including the Marxist revolutionaries favored by the Third Paedophile Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio. It's all really disgusting -- and not one jot or tittle of Newchurch's actions are Catholic.

Francis-Bergoglio Preaches Pseudo-science and Totalitarian Tyranny
In His Latest Speech, Which Runs Entirely Counter to Catholic Theology

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Jorge Bergoglio

Before He Became Newpope of the New Order Sect
Young Jorge Bergoglio Worked as a Bar Bouncer and a Janitor
Then for a Short Time as a Chemist's Technician
This Work History Hardly Gives Him Any Standing to Pontificate
On Scientifically-disputed "Global Warming"
And "Sustainable Development Goals"
Which Include Artificial Contraception and Abortion
Francis-Bergoglio's Anti-Catholic Approach
Runs Directly Counter to Catholic Theology

The Marxist/Modernist Francis-Bergoglio went secularist again in a speech delivered on May 2, 2019, in Newrome. He went full-bore totalitarian, calling for a new "supranational body" to enforce United Nations goals for "global warming" policies. The bar bouncer and janitor who worked a short time as a chemist's technician in the food industry presumed to lecture to the members of the Pontifical Academy of Social Sciences (not even Physical Sciences) preached the controverted gospel of "global warming," whose alleged anthropogenic cause is still hotly disputed in the scientific community. His predecessor, Bergoglio's Marxist/Modernist stance jibes with that of his Newpope predecessor, Benedict-Ratzinger, a former member of the Nazi Hitlerjugend, also preached this "supranational" authoritarianism.

Francis-Bergoglio is deathly afraid of free nations, who are increasingly turning toward the national liberty founded in Catholic theology, as brilliantly articulated by the Principal Theologian of the Catholic Church, St. Thomas Aquinas. His own Italy, as well as France, Germany, the United States, and many other nations are among those moving in the Catholic theological direction. Bergoglio, to the contrary, preaches open borders, with illegal aliens and terrorists (whom he euphemistically calls "migrants") having free access to any country they please -- except his own Vatican City State, which has had a wall around it against invaders for over a millennium and a half. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]

True Catholics, the Marxist/Modernist Francis-Bergoglio in his speech also threw his hat in with the forces that want to cut population growth under the guise of "Sustainable Development Goals." These goals include Reproductive Health Services, which includes artificial contraception and abortion. Bergoglio's anti-Catholic approach runs directly counter to those of Pope Pius XI, who looked askance at the League of Nations, formed after World War I, the "supranational" organization that gradually dissolved a little more than a decade thereafter.


2019 Marks the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Destruction of the Mass in Newchurch

The Co-conspirators Who Destroyed Roman Catholic Worship
Hannibal Bugnini (Left) and Paul VI-Montini
2019 Marks the Fiftieth Anniversary of the Rollout
Of the Full-blown Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New Mess" of 1969
Fabricated by the Masonic Presbyter Bugnini
And the Leftist/Modernist Newpope of the Newchurch, Montini
The Poisonous Fruit of Bugnini's and Montini's Destruction
Of Roman Catholic Worship Has Been Devastating:
Two-thirds of Catholics Have Walked out in Silence since 1969

2019 marks the fiftieth anniversary of the rollout of the full-blown "New Mess" as the invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service to replace the Traditional Latin Mass, canonized in perpetuity by the dogmatic Council of Trent and Pope St. Pius V. The Chief Architect of the new "liturgy," as it was termed, was Annibale (Hannibal) Bugnini, who appears to have been a Freemasonic plant, whose mission was to destroy the Roman Catholic worship. In that effort, Bugnini had many co-conspirators, among them a coven of heretics who took over Vatican II and turned it into an Anti-council:

  1. Louis Bouyer
  2. Raymond Brown
  3. Pierre Teilhard de Chardin
  4. Yves Congar
  5. Charles Curran
  6. Henri De Lubac
  7. Gerald Ellard
  8. Joseph Jungmann
  9. Hans Kung
  10. Thomas Merton
  11. John Courtney Murray
  12. Karl Rahner
  13. Edward Schillebeeckx
  14. Hans Urs von Balthasar

and even a man seen in a business suit and tie wandering the council halls, who was then known as Fr. Josef Ratzinger, but later to become Newpope Benedict XVI-Ratzinger and forced out of the Newpapacy for paedophile complicity.

That Bugnini was a plant is known from a letter of congratulations on his work from the Worshipful Master of the Roman Freemasons and from the fact that he went from a curate in a poor Roman parish to become the powerful Secretary General of the Consilium (which could be compared to the Soviet Praesidium). He was a master manipulator, sneaking in smaller changes first until, having softened up his colleagues to constant change, he then sprang the big items. The first was in 1956: a wholesale gutting of the ancient Holy Week rites, the most sacred of the Church, going back to the Apostles. Even certain otherwise traditional Catholic groups and priests today are still victims of this Protestantized version.

Having succeeded with the gutting of Holy Week, Bugnini forged ahead to destroy Catholic worship by:

  1. suppressing the true Mass by replacing it with the invalid "New Mess"
  2. introducing vulgar tongues into the sacred services
  3. introducing the sacrilege of "communion in the hand," which had been condemned by popes from the second century on
  4. introducing Protestantized "concelebration" to undermine the priesthood
  5. destroying the priesthood in Newchurch by the New Ordinal of 1968, which no longer ordains priests, but only Protestantized ministers "to preside over the assembly of the people"
  6. removing hundreds of Saints from the liturgical calendar and the Canon of the Mass, which was itself replaced by a Protestantized "eucharistic prayer"
  7. replacing the traditional Divine Office, used substantially from the time of the early Church, with a "Litany of the Hours" featuring excerpts from the writings of heretics

In this effort Bugnini had the connivance of the first Newpope of the Newchurch of the New Order, Paul VI-Montini, a noted Italian Leftist/Modernist. In order to cover up Montini's complicity in heresy, not to say apostasy, Francis-Bergoglio, the latest heretical Newpope, made him a phony New Order "Unsaint." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

True Catholics. the poisonous fruit of Hannibal Bugnini's destruction of Roman Catholic worship have been devastating. A survey at the time showed that after the introduction of the "New Mess" in 1969, one-third of Catholics walked out in silence during the next decade. Since that time, it is estimated that another third have walked out. Former Catholics are often heard to say: without the Traditional Latin Mass, it just isn't the Catholic Church any longer. And they are right. It isn't. The true Catholic Church is now to be found in the "catacombs," just as it was the early Church. Today these catacombs are the independent traditional Catholic churches, chapels, and oratories pastored by independent traditional Catholic priests. These sites are now rising, just as the fake Newchurch of the New Order is sinking to the bottom of the pit.

Over 100 French Churches Have Been Attacked in the Last Year

The former Chief Architect of Notre Dame Cathedral, also a General Inspector of French Historical Monuments, has thrown cold water on the notion being floated by government officials that the conflagration on April 15, 2019, was caused by an "electrical short." Benjamin Mouton is a recognized expert on the cathedral, having overseen the restoration work in 2013.

Mouton says that in the 1990s all the electrical wiring of the cathedral had been updated to contemporary norms. "There is no possibility of a short circuit." In addition, at that time the best fire-detection and protection systems were installed, supplemented by two fire watchmen on duty around the clock. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the New York Times.]

True Catholics, it seems that the French government wants to sweep under the table any talk of arson from anti-Christian terrorists. In the last year, there has been a rampage on more than 100 Christian churches in France, with severe vandalism and property destruction. Some fabled "short circuit" would be a convenient way to excuse what may have been the greatest destruction of a Catholic cathedral in history by anti-Christian forces..

There Was Nothing Left for Traditional Catholics in the 1960s
After the Vatican II Anti-council
Except Fr. Depauw's Traditional Latin Masses on Radio
And His Periodical, Sounds of Truth and Tradition

May 6, 2019 marks the fourteenth anniversary of the death of the gutsy Fr. Gommar DePauw, who in 1964 formed the first traditional Catholic organization in the United States. He had held the Chair of Moral Theology and Canon Law at Mount St. Mary's Major Seminary, the seminary of the United States's primatial see in Baltimore, Maryland. He had also been Professor of Fundamental Dogmatic Theology and Dean of Studies at the same institution and an Associate Professor of Philosophy. As a peritus at the first session of Vatican II in 1963, he was scandalized by the resurgence of the Modernist heresy that had taken hold there, culminating in Sacrosanctum concilium (The Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy), which opened the way to the invalid New Mess and Sacraments. Fr. DePauw saw, before practically anyone else, clergy or lay, the devastation that this document would wreck upon the Church.

Setting an example for all true Catholics, Fr. DePauw did not excuse participating in the heresy by "obedience" to a bishop, but immediately stood with St. Peter, who commanded: "We ought to obey God rather than man" (Acts of the Apostles, 5:29/DRV). Fr. DePauw refused to accommodate the corruptions and continued to say his daily private (traditional Latin) Mass per usuale, even when the Cardinal of Baltimore. James Sheehan, tried to break his door in.

In 1964 Fr. DePauw left his professorship and began saying a public Traditional Latin Mass in the Pan American Building in New York, when the first group of changes to the Traditional Latin Mass were imposed by the Novus Ordo sect. Eventually, he purchased a beautiful Gothic-style Ave Maria Chapel in Westbury, New York, where he continued to offer the Traditional Latin Mass exclusively until his death in 2005 and continued to publish to the world his denunciations of the New Order by periodical, LP, CD, and internet.

It was due to Fr. DePauw originally that the Solemn Papal Bull Quo primum's prohibition in the Roman rite of any but the Traditional Latin Mass was brought to full public light in a series of publications entitled Sounds of Truth and Tradition, the only traditional periodical in print at that time. In those dark initial days of the New Order, Fr. DePauw was an inspiration for courage in the Faith, perhaps the only well-known one. While other priests and laymen pandered to the New Order, Fr. DePauw called the heretics publicly what they were: "LITURGIACS!" and "OECUMENIACS!," words that he himself coined. For many years the Traditional Latin Mass was broadcast every Sunday on major radio stations around the United States and Canada from a tape he once recorded of a Marian Mass at his chapel.

True Catholics, John Paul I-Luciani, who lasted a mere 33 days in 1978, had summoned Fr. DePauw to Rome to work on a Vatican Commission to restore the Traditional Latin Mass to the Church. Unfortunately, that pope died (or was assassinated) before the Commission could be assembled. If Fr. DePauw had sat on such a commission, Newchurch might never have survived him! Surely, no bishop or cardinal, or even pope, would have intimidated Fr. DePauw where the truth of the Mass, the Sacraments, and the Roman Catholic Faith were concerned.

Is Francis-Bergoglio Now an International Criminal?
He Has Been Exposed as an Embezzler of Charity Monies to Fund International Crimes

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Francis-Bergolio Is Heavily Weighed down by His Crimes
He Has Recently Been Charged with Heresy
Before the College of Newchurch Bishops
Now He Has Been Exposed as an Embezzler
Who Robbed the Peter's Pence Charity Fund
To Support His Marxist/Modernist Political Causes
And International Crime in Central America

To his complicity in paedophile crimes of his Newchurch officials both high and low, Francis-Bergoglio has now added the crime of embezzling monies donated to Newchurch's Peter's Pence charity to fund illegal border invasions. Mexico is desperately trying to stop illegal invaders from Central America's Northern Triangle, i.e., Honduras, El Salvador, and Guatemala, flooding into Mexico. Bergoglio, who doesn't seem to recognize national borders, except his own that is, has embezzled half a million U.S. dollars from Newchurch's Peter's Pence "charity" to fund the invaders' crimes to crash the Mexican border, and then the United States border.

The Peter's Pence fund, now exposed as yet another Newchurch scam, is contributed to, sometimes unbeknownst to the Newchurchers themselves, in "special collections" at New Order parishes worldwide. The contributors are clueless to the fact that their donations, which are supposed to go to charitable purposes, are actually being spent by Bergoglio on Marxist/Modernist political causes and criminal operations.

Francis-Bergoglio, a Marxist globalist, who wants to see what he calls "supranational" organizations, like the failing European Union and the United Nations, take control of secular nations, doesn't like the idea of national borders, which are enshrined in Catholic theology and confirmed in many Encyclical Letters written by true Catholic popes. Nevertheless, Bergoglio retreats to safe cover behind his own wall, the Aurelian Wall, which surrounds the Vatican City State, fabricated in the Lateran Treaty of 1929 between the Vatican and Fascist Dictator Benito Mussolini. U.S. President Donald Trump has in the past called Bergoglio out on his immoral duplicity. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by BBC News.]

True Catholics, we thought that Francis-Bergoglio couldn't sink any lower than to collude with his paedophile Newclergy and cover up their crimes. But now he has turned Peter's Pence charity into a criminal fraud. Like the historical High Priest Caiphas, whose corruption is documented by the Greek historian Flavius Josephus, Bergoglio is embezzling Church money to support his Marxist/Modernist political causes and crimes related thereto. Newchurchers unquestionably under the provisions of Catholic theology have a moral obligation immediately to leave the heretical, sacrilegious, and immoral Newchurch and completely shun its criminal paedophile Newpope, now turned embezzler of charitable funds.

Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch Leaders Denounce Him as a "Heretic"
And Call for Him to Be Deposed

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Francis-Bergoglio Has a Good Laugh
With a Group of Lutheran Ministresses
Now a Number of Newchurch Leaders Have Issued an Open Letter
Denouncing Him as "Public Adherent to Heresy"
And Called for the College of Newbishops to Depose Him
All This Is Much Too Little and Much Too Late
Because the Newchurch Leaders Themselves Are Heretics
Of the Anti-Catholic New Order Sect

A group of 1,500 Newchurchers, including 19 presbyters and academics from around the world have sent a demand in a 20-page open letter to the College of Newchurch Bishops to denounce Francis-Bergoglio for his crime (delictum) of "public adherence to heresy." It demands that the Newchurch bishops "publicly to admonish [Bergoglio] to abjure the heresies that he has professed." The letter lists "Evidence for Pope Francis Being Guilty of the Crime of Heresy," enumerating a number of public heresies preached by Bergoglio, i.e., Catholic teachings revealed by God, which he "knowingly and persistently denies":

  1. Bergoglio has preached the admission of "divorced" persons to the Novus Ordo cookie in his March 2016 document Amoris laetitia.
  2. Bergoglio has preached that the intentions of the Arch-heretic of the Protestant Revolution, Martin Luther, "were not mistaken."
  3. Bergoglio has preached a permissive stance toward the crime of abortion.
  4. Bergoglio has preached a permissive stance toward homosexuality and sodomy.
  5. Bergoglio signed a joint statement with Lutheran heretics in 2016 in which he stated that Newchurchers should be grateful for the "theological gifts" of the Protestant Revolution.
  6. Bergoglio signed a joint statement with a prominent Muslim leader in February 2019 that preached that "God not only permits, but positively wills, the pluralism and diversity of religions."
  7. Bergoglio has preached that persons can intentionally break Divine law in a serious matter without committing mortal sin.
  8. Bergoglio has preached that sexual acts between divorced and remarried people "can sometimes be morally right."

The open letter demands that the College of Newbishops publicly admonish Francis to "abjure" these heresies, including "repudiating and reversing" actions that have manifested heresy such as the "appointment of bishops and cardinals who have supported these heresies by their words and actions." If Bergoglio refuses to recant his heresies, the letter demands that the College of Newchurch Bishops depose him from office. Bergoglio has remained mute about the letter, which includes dozens of footnotes, Biblical citations, pronouncements by popes, and a separate bibliography.

True Catholics, of course, all this is much too little and much too late on the part of Newchurchers. And the signers are themselves heretics of the anti-Catholic New Order sect. Truly, the Newchurch of the New Order is in a deplorable state, at this point irredeemable; now it can only be purged, like the Protestants who are its guiding light. One could apply the canonic principle, "Qui tacet consentire videtur," and interpret Bergoglio's silence as consent to the charge that he is a heretic.


Francis-Bergoglio Harps on the Fake Sin of "Gossip" Again
Apparently, Legitimate Criticism of His Heresies and Crimes Is Getting to Him

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Francis-Bergoglio Is Lashing out Again
This Time against His Own Newvatican Barbers and Hairdressers
Who He Charges Are "Gossiping" about Him
Thus, He Has Created a Fake Sin of "Gossip" for Them
Ignoring the Fact that Jesus Christ and His Apostles
Are Recorded in the Gospels as Engaging
In the Same Kind of "Gossip"
Bergoglio, with His Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD)
Just Doesn't Want to Be Legitimately Criticized
For His Public Heresies and Criminal Complicity in Paedophilia

Given the heresies and moral crimes rampant in his Newchurch, you'd think that Francis-Bergoglio would address these serious matters. But, no. Bergoglio suffers from Narcissistic Personality Syndrome (NPD). He thinks first and mostly about himself. His April 29, 2019, audience "homily" attacked Newvatican's own barbers and hairdressers about "gossip."

Francis-Bergoglio, who is personally so awash in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, that he has had to concoct this fake sin of "gossip." Now he is denouncing the hardworking barbers and hairdressers in his own Newvatican, who cut his own hair, because, as he in his paranoia suspects, they "gossip" about him while plying their ancient trade. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Agence France-Presse.]

Now, there is nothing sinful in "gossip," depending upon how you define it. It is only human to exchange news about what is going on with friends and the community. Christ did it. His Apostles did it. St. Paul did it. You can find episodes of such "gossip" throughout the Gospels and Epistles of the New Testament.

We are not talking here about real sins of word: slander and calumny, i.e., telling lies about other people. Or even detraction, i.e., telling the truth about the occult sins of others to those who have no need to know (however, sometimes they do have a need to know, as about a neighbor who drinks and then drives dangerously in the neighborhood). Bergoglio likes "community," but only if it is, as he recently said, controlled by a supra-governmental organization like the sinking European Union. You see, with Bergoglio and with Newchurch as a whole, it is always ultimately a question of control.

Note too that vigorous public discussion about politicians are not "gossip," except in the case of deliberate lies about them. Citizens, at least in democracies, must have the freedom to debate and criticize openly, and at times even harshly, to keep the authorities within the legitimate scope of their office. And that certainly includes popes. St. Thomas More the Martyr did that. Venerable Erasmus of Rotterdam did that in his famed Moriae encomium, published in 1511, shortly after the death of the "Bad Pope" Alexander VI-Borgia, in which the saintly priest attacked in biting satire the failings of the Catholic Church of his time. Dante Alighieri, highly praised by many popes for his theology, called the pope of his time "cloaca del sangue et della puzza" (a sewer of filth and blood).

Our Lord Himself established the principle of accountability, as reported in St. Matthew's Gospel. Such open debate and criticism must also take place to hold organizations and their leaders to account for their corruption, for example, Newchurch and even a religious organization such as the corrupted Neo-SSPX. Moreover, Our Lord certainly railed against the Church of His time, i.e., the synagogue, whose priests, right on up to the High Priest, were corrupt.

True Catholics, let's face it: Francis-Bergoglio doesn't want to be denounced for his very public sins of cooperation in paedophile crimes, heresy, and idolatry, some would even say apostasy. Nor do, for example. Bernie Fellay and David Pagliarani, the leaders of the corrupted Neo-SSPX after the death of the traditional Archbishop Lefebvre. Thus, they try to make up a sin of "gossip" in an effort to protect themselves from legitimate criticism of their public roles in working against the true Faith. Yet, their efforts to silence legitimate criticism of their public conduct have failed, and they are all sinking into the morass that they have created for themselves.

Independent Traditional Catholic Priest Fr. Joseph Collins Dies
He Was One of the First to Object to the Half Novus Ordo "Mess of 1962"

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Traditional Catholic Funeral

Fr. Joseph Collins Was One of the First to Object
To the Half Novus Ordo "Mess of 1962"
As Well as the Heresies Introduced under JPII-Wojtyla
In 1983 Fr. Collins Joined Eight Other Traditional Catholic Priests
In Objecting to Wojtyla's Numerous Public Acts
Of Heresy, Idolatry, and Blasphemy
And Newchurch's Protestantized "New" Code of Canon Law
Fr. Collins Prudently Remained Independent
And Pastored St. Michael's Chapel & Shrine in Glenmont, New York

On April 27, 2019, Fr. Joseph F. Collins died in Albany, New York, of pancreatic cancer. After he had returned to the rectory, he broke his hip, weakened from the metastasized cancer. For many years, he was the pastor at St. Michael Chapel & Shrine in Glenmont, New York. Fr. Collins had been ordained by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, the head of the original, traditional Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), which has now been converted into a Novus Ordo-leaning organization by subsequent heads Bernie Fellay and David Pagliarani.

In 1983, Fr. Collins joined eight traditional Catholic priests and twelve traditional seminarians in writing Abp. Lefebvre that they could no longer in good conscience recognize the Newpope, JPII-Wojtyla as Catholic, because he had engaged in numerous public acts of heresy, idolatry, and blasphemy and had issued a Protestantized "New" Code of Canon Law. These priests refused to use the Half New Order Vatican II Mess of 1962, as it had been substantially corrupted by the Modernist/Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini and eventually, with additional modifications, became the full-blow "New Mess" of 1969.

Abp. Lefebvre too opposed the Mess of 1962, but said that, for practical reasons, he could not fight the Newchurch of the New Order on everything at once and had chosen to start with Newchurch's doctrinal heresies. He, therefore, made some reversions in the 1962 Mess to return toward the Traditional Latin Mass as it existed in 1950, before the Modernist modifications, such as the restoration of the second Confiteor before any congregational reception of Holy Communion. As it turned out, the Archbishop, who was so wise in other matters, lived to regret his decision to accept the "modernized" Mess of 1962. His biographer states that in the last three years of his life, he was preparing to return to the completely Traditional Latin Mass.

Many of the nine priests and twelve seminarians formed the Society of St. Pius V (SSPV), now headquartered in Oyster Bay Cove, New York, but Fr. Collins prudently remained independent and pastored St. Michael's Chapel & Shrine in Glenmont, New York.


The May 1 Feast of "St. Joseph the Worker" is not traditional. It was concocted by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, the head of "liturgy" for the nascent Newchurch and placed in the calendar in 1956, in conjunction with Communist May Day. The concocted new feast shockingly displaced on May 1 the traditional Feast of Sts. Philip & James, the Apostles of Our Lord Jesus Christ, and suppressed the traditional Solemnity of St. Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary, Confessor and Patron of the Universal Church, which had long been celebrated on the Wednesday after the Second Sunday after Easter. The new May 1 Feast of St. Joseph the Workman ("Worker" in genderless "modernized" English) was widely reviled in the Church at the time by the highest authorities, and was derisively called the Feast of "Joe the Worker" or the "Pseudo-feast of San Giuseppe Comunista" by the Romans and others, as it fell on Communist May Day. The traditional Sacred Congregation of Rites rejected Bugnini's new feast, and there was open opposition in the Church to it. Opposition to the new feast was so strong that the Congregation of Sacred Rites refused for four years to formulate the Gregorian chant Mass and Divine Office for the new feast.

Francis-Bergoglio's Newbishop Refuses the Novus Ordo Cookie
To Two Attendees on Maundy Thursday Who Dared to Kneel

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Celestino Aos

Newbishop Celestino Aos Tries to Explain to the Press
Why He Refused the (Invalid) Novus Ordo Cookie
To Two Mess Attendees Who Committed the "Sin" of Kneeling
Aos Also Allowed the Criminal Newcardinal Ricardo Ezzati
To March in the Maundy Thursday Procession
Chile Is in the Process of Revoking Ezzati's Citizenship
And Readying His Prosecution for Sex Crimes
Francis-Bergoglio Should Have Prohibited Ezzati
From even Entering the Newcathedral

On Maundy Thursday, April 18, 2014, Newbishop Celestino Aos was filmed denying the Novus Ordo cookie to two attendees of his Novus Ordo Mess simply because they dared to kneel down to take the cookie. Of course, the Novus Ordo cookie is invalid, but Newchurch continues to pander the phony New Mess with its fake cookies and Kool-Aid, which is, in no way, "communion."

Aos is temporarily replacing the Newcardinal of Santiago, Chile, Ricardo Ezzati, who has been relieved owing to sex crimes. He is said to have failed to report the rape of an adult man in Santiago's Newcathedral to police. Nevertheless, Ezzati scandalously marched in the Maundy Thursday entrance procession, and some presbyters and attendees accordingly walked out in protest. So reviled is Ezzati now that Chilean legislators are in the process of taking his citizenship away.

True Catholics, Newchurch has learned nothing in the past two decades since its Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust burst into the public spotlight. It is falling into more and more corruption as the days pass. Francis-Bergoglio should have prohibited the criminal Ezzati outright from even appearing in the Newcathedral. When Bergoglio's locum tenens Aos was asked why he permitted Ezzati to enter the Newcathedral, he gave the usual hypocritical Newchurch answer: "We're all sinners." If Adolf Hitler were alive, I wonder whether the hypocritical Bergoglio and Aos would have allowed Der Führer in!
