The TRADITIO Network recommends the Gregorian chant recordings of the St. John Schola, which is recording a CD series consisting of live recordings of the type of chant pieces that may be used at traditional churches and chapels. It makes no pretense to being professional, but to what is achievable, with a little work, by the average small lay choir. The hope is that this series will serve as a practical guide for the wider use of Gregorian chant in the traditional Roman Catholic liturgy. For ordering and descriptive information on the CD series, click on A Traditional Chapel Sings Gregorian Chant. This month's featured Gregorian Chant CD is: FIRST MASS OF CHRISTMAS (VOLUME II).

The TRADITIO Network has been furnishing information about all facets of traditional Roman Catholicism, answering questions both privately and publicly, since 1994, longer than any other traditional site on the Internet. When we started, even the Vatican web site didn't exist! We wish that we could show you all of the personal messages we have received from troubled souls who have found here clear, traditional, and honest answers to their questions, free of organizational bias. Thousands of these have reverted or converted to the traditional Roman Catholic Faith as a result. Our work has always been done free of charge, but at this time of year, we like to remind you, particularly if you have benefited personally from the TRADITIO Network, to remember in your charity to make a donation to TRADITIO among your charitable works this time of year.

In the darkness of Christmas Eve, December 24, is traditionally chanted the traditional Hour of Matins of the Divine Office for the Nativity of Our Lord, consisting of ancient antiphons, hymns, psalms, and the ancient commentaries of the Church Fathers on the significance of the Nativity. For example, in the Third Nocturn, Holy Mother Church provides us with the commentary of Pope St. Gregory the Great on the census proclamation of the Roman emperor that brought the Holy Family to Bethlehem, the commentary of St. Ambrose on the significance of the shepherds, and the commentary of St. Augustine on the Incarnation of the Word. Following Matins is traditionally held the procession to the creche and the High Mass of Christmas at Midnight (In Nocte), the First Mass of Christmas.

It is most unfortunate that many traditional Catholics do not have access to the Midnight High Mass, let alone the Solemn Matins of Christmas Eve, which precedes it and prepares for it. Fortunately, the St. John Schola has made available to the traditional Catholic faithful these significant rites on two CDs. For further information, click on the TRADITIO Network's Gregorian Chant department for Volume I and Volume II of that Gregorian schola's recordings of Christmas Matins and Christmas High Mass. For traditional Catholics who do not have the opportunity to attend these singular rites in person, at least they may participate in them spiritually through these recordings. These rites are an essential part of the traditional Catholic Faith.

Newvatican's Former Principal Latinist Dies
Reginald Foster Had Written the Official Latin Documents for Four Newpopes

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Lexicon Recentis Latinitatis

The Renowned Dictionary of Modern Latin
Compiled by Newvatican's Eminent Latinist
Reginald Foster, Who Died on Christmas 2020
Foster Was Primarily Responsible
For the Official Latin Newpapal Documents
Having Served as an Advisor to Bishops and Cardinals
At the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965)
Which, by Decree of Pope John XXIII
Was Conducted Entirely in Latin
Pope John Specifically Rejected the U.N. Model
And Insisted that Church Officials Use Latin Exclusively
At the Council and, for All Time, in the Mass and Divine Office

Newvatican's principal Latinist, Reginald Foster, died on Christmas Day 2020 at age 81. One would think that a man like Foster, who was so imbued with the importance of the Church's Latin language, would be a vocal traditional Catholic. But, no, in the religious sphere he was a deluded Modernist. It is ironic that Foster died without the traditional Latin Sacraments as a Novus Ordo heretic. Foster was ordained as a priest in 1966, just two years before his beloved Newchurch of the New Order, which was established by the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) in 1964 to replace the Catholic Church, rejected the priesthood and substituted for it a Protestant-Masonic-Pagan presbyterate.

During that Anti-council bishops and cardinals turned to Foster for assistance is preparing their orationes (interventions, or speeches). Pope John XXIII, who was no Modernist when it came to the Mass and doctrine, had rightly ordered that the Anti-council be conducted only in the Church's immemorial language, Latin. He explicitly rejected the kind of Babel with translators that the United Nations, for example, had become.

Foster took solemn vows as a Discalced Carmelite in 1962 and served as a Secretarius Brevium ad Principes (Secretary of Briefs to Princes), or Latinist, in the Latin Letters Office of Newvatican's Secretariate of State, from 1969 until 2009 (when he returned to his native Milwaukee, Wisconsin) under Newpopes Paul VI-Montini, JP I-Luciani, JP II-Wojtyla, and Benedict-Ratzinger XVI, writing the official Latin versions of encyclical letters, Newpapal letters, and other Newchurch documents. He conducted classes in Latin for Newchurch clergy and religious, if one is to call them that, in Rome and in the United States. He was instrumental in the compilation of the renowned 1992 Lexicon Recentis Latinitatis [Dictionary of Modern Latin] in two volumes, which brought current the use of the Latin language for modern terms.

Although he deplored the ignorance of Newchurch in its own Latin language, Foster, for all his Latin knowledge, was a Novus Ordo oddball. He refused to wear clerical clothes. and instead dressed like a gas-station attendant, for which reason he was known disparagingly in Italian as il benzinaio. He refused to be called "Father." It was once reported that he simulated the Novus Ordo service in the nude.

One of the TRADITIO Fathers had Latin correspondence with him in the 1980s, when we queried of him why JPII-Wojtyla's 1988 document, Ecclesia Dei, which purported to give (unneeded) "permission" to simulate the semi-New Order "1962 Mess" in Latin, showed signs of being written by several different authors. The Latin in the document was clearly out of sync and did not exhibit Foster's usual care in composition.

Foster admitted, in Latin, of course, that when Archbishop Lefebvre in 1988 had the courage to consecrate four men as traditional Catholic bishops, JPII-Wojtyla panicked that he was witnessing the expected revolution against the Newchurch of the New Order. In his panic to put out a response in one day, Wojtyla pulled various drafts "off the shelf" and hobbled them into a single document, which betrayed its origin from many authors. Anyone who understands Latin can easily see that the document is a contradictory mish-mash. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Milwaukee Journal.]

True Catholics, you'd think that a man like Foster, who was so imbued with the importance of the Church's Latin language would be a vocal traditional Catholic. But, no, he was the worst of Modernists. Nevertheless, we recognize Reginaldus Foster at least for the work that he did to preserve the Church's Latin language and his uncompromising impetus to spread knowledge of Latin throughout the Church -- and the world.

Francis-Bergoglio Tells Newvatican Leaders to Shut Up
He Doesn't Want Them Turning State's Evidence against His Corrupt Regime

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Angry Francis-Bergoglio

Francis-Bergoglio Has Again Threatened
His Curial Officials
Newcardinals, Newbishops, and Newprefects
For Reporting the Corruption of His Regime
To Investigators and Prosecutors
He Issued His Silence Order
At What Was Supposed to Be
The Annual Christmas Party
For Workers in His Newvatican

Now we know why Francis-Bergoglio keeps railing against what he calls "gossip," which generally isn't even a sin, unlike sodomy and embezzlement, which Bergoglio and his Newchurch henchmen are quite inured to committing. What Bergoglio calls "gossip" is actually legitimate, even desirable, open discussion of the truth about him and his corrupt and immoral organization. Bernie Fellay, who ran -- and behind the scenes still runs -- the corrupt Neo-SSPX that took over Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre's originally traditional Catholic organization after the death of the Archbishop, similarly rails against "gossip," because it exposes the truth about corruption within his Neo-SSPX.

Bergoglio's attempt to silence his Newvatican prefects has now become an annual affair at what is supposed to be an annual Christmas party for his curial Newcardinals, Newbishops, and Newprelates. On December 21, 2020, Bergoglio reprised his nasty harangues to stop their "gossip" that exposes the corruption of his regime, which is now being investigated by governments around the world for laundering 1,700,000,000 USD from Australian charities, losing 425,000,000 USD of pew Newchurchers' donations in a London real-estate scam, and fanning an ever-growing holocaust of sodomy, rape, and sexual assault against children by Newcardinals, Newbishops, presbyters, and "lay deacons." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]

True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio wants his Newchurch curial officials "in the know" to stop turning state's evidence and reporting to investigators and prosecutors what they know about the rampant financial corruption in his regime. Such an attitude is what is sinking Bergoglio and his Newchurch. Bergoglio rarely discusses what he himself can do to stop Newchurch's continuing Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. He simply wants to silence those who would expose the corruption to stop it.

A Reader Asks: "What Is the Traditional Catholic Teaching
On whether the Faithful Should Have Their Bodies Cremated at Death?"

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

As if Consumed in the Fires of Hell
Cremation Subjects the Human Body
To Temperatures up to 1,000 degrees Celsius
For a Period of Ninety Minutes
Accelerated by Oil, Gas, and/or Propane
Cremation after Death Is an Uncatholic
And Prohibited Method of Disposing of a Human Body
"The Temple of the Holy Ghost"
By Traditional Catholic Canon Law Anyone
Who Directs that His Body Be Given over to Cremation
Is to Be Denied Ecclesiastical Burial

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

Is a Catholic permitted to have his body cremated at death? What is the traditional Catholic teaching?


Cremation is an unCatholic and prohibited method of disposing of the body after death. By traditional Canon Law (Canon 1203), anyone who directs that his body be given over to cremation is to be denied ecclesiastical burial.

Cremation has long been associated with pagan customs (the ancient Romans customarily burned their dead during the most corrupt period from the Late Republic to the mid third century, when Christianity became the empire's religion) or with the denial of the Resurrection (cremation became popular around the time of the 18th-century "Enlightenment," when it was advocated by atheists and agnostics as a visual symbol of the denial of the soul's existence).

Among the Hindus and Buddhists, the practice is quite common. Since these pagans believe in the reincarnation of men, it only follows that the body is not kept as a sacred temple of God, for (as they believe) the soul will just possess another one at a different time and place of existence after its release by death, perhaps being changed into a mole, an insect, or a bacterium.

The Christian custom of burial of the dead, and not cremation, dates back to the time of Christ. In the New Testament, given that Our Lord's Body was not cast into flames, even though He died under the hands of the Romans, we have the most fundamental example of respect for the body that could be learned. Christ, Our Lord and Master, was not cremated, so neither are we ourselves allowed this condemned practice.

Given how cremation has been perverted even further by the atheists and anti-religionists in modern society, one sees the traditional wisdom of the Church. It is bad enough that the temple of the Holy Ghost be burned to a crisp at temperatures of up to 1,000 degrees Celsius for a period of ninety minutes, accelerated by oil, gas, and/or propane, but it is even worse when the ashes and bone fragments aren't even buried or inurned, but instead tossed out into the garden, the ocean, the forest, etc.

Some try to justify cremation on the basis of supposedly lower cost, but that is a specious justification. If one insists on the minimal requirements, the expense of interment (ground burial) can be kept to a minimum, nor is cremation necessarily inexpensive in comparison. If one is without sufficient means, one can always avail oneself of potter's field. For those who wish a method other than interment, entombment is an ancient Christian alternative.


Francis-Bergoglio's Newvatican Is Being Investigated Once Again for Embezzlement
Australians Newbishops Say that They Never Got the 1,700,000,000 USD Transfers to Charities

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
George Pell & Francis-Bergoglio

Were Newcardinal George Pell (Left)
And Newpope Francis-Bergoglio Involved
In Laundering and Embezzling 1,700,000,000 USD
From the Australian Newbishops and Their Charities?
That Is What the Australian Federal Police
And the Australian Parliament Are Now Investigating
The Huge Amount Involved Dwarfs
The Previous Newvatican Scam
In Which 425,000,000 USD of Money Donated
By Pew Newchurchers to Bergoglio's Charities
Were Lost in a 2014 London Real-estate Scam

Australian Federal Police and the Australian Parliament are now investigating transfers of 1,700,000,000 USD from Newvatican, which the Australian Newbishop says never reached their shores. Newvatican has apparently been embezzling the money since 2014. The embezzlement was exposed on December 22, 2020, by the Australian newspaper. Newvatican seems to have laundered the money through 400,000 separate transactions. Some of the money was supposed to go to a charitable fund.

This huge embezzlement coincided with Newcardinal George Pell's appointment by Francis-Bergoglio as Prefect of the Economy, essentially as Bergoglio's Chief Financial Officer, in 2014 and continued through Pell's facing charges of sex crimes in Australia, for which he was imprisoned in 2018 for over a year, until he was let out in 2019 on a technicality.

Pell on his part has expressed "surprise" at the extent of the criminality involved. He claims that he had tried to bring to Newvatican finances "tough mechanisms for financial transparency and accountability," which were thwarted by Bergoglio. He described the degree of the criminality involved as "Technicolor." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

True Catholics, this huge case of embezzlement dwarfs the previous 425,000,000 USD of money donated to Francis-Bergoglio's Newvatican by pew Newchurchers for charitable purposes, which Newvatican officials lost when they played in a 2014 London real-estate scam. Indeed, there is more than enough criminality here to engulf Francis-Bergoglio, Newcardinal Pell, and other corrupt high-ranking Newprelates appointed by Bergoglio to control Newvatican finances. At this point Newvatican's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust is raging so far out of control that it threatens to burn down the corrupt Newchurch, founded in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council to replace the Catholic Church.


The Growing Christian Movement in Red China
Threatens the Atheistic Autocracy of That Imprisoned Country

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

While Brutal Communist Chinese Dictator Xi Jinping
Is Destroying Christian Crucifixes

Francis-Bergoglio Has Essentially Turned over to Xi
The Authority to Appoint Newchurch Bishops

Who Are Trying to Thwart Red China's Atheistic Regime

Christianity has been growing so fast in Red China that Dictator Xi Jinping and his atheistic Communist Party, which foisted off on the world the virulent Chinese Virus, is reported to be in fear of losing political control. Unusual pressure has been placed on Communist China by U.S. President Donald trump and other world leaders in support of Christians there. Xi has resorted, as Communists do, to repressive tactics, demolishing Christian churches and invading homes to destroy crucifixes, holy pictures, and "house churches." Christians and Muslim Uyghurs have been railroaded into re-education (aka concentration) camps.

On December 22, 2020, it was reported that Xi is attempting to centralize power in the atheist Communist Party in ways so severe that they parallel the pogroms of Mao Tse-tung, who turned the country Communist in 1947. Currently, Newchurchers are said to number about 10,000,000, and Protestants, 100,000,000. The total population of Red China now numbers some 1,500,000,000. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Newsmax.]

True Catholics, while the U.S. President and other world leaders are trying to thwart Red China's atheistic regime, Francis-Bergoglio has been supporting Xi's atheist regime, essentially turning over to Xi the authority to appoint Newchurch bishops affiliated with the atheistic government. Xi's government has also rewritten the Bible to be distributed in Red China, picturing Jesus Christ as a government autocrat Who Himself, inter alia, stones to death the woman caught in adultery in the name of government power. Compared to Xi, Pontius Pilate was a pussycat!


U.S. President Trump Orders Traditional Catholic-style Buildings
To Be Constructed by the Federal Government

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Santa Maria ad Martyres Basilica in Rome
Known as the Pantheon, Built in Classical Style
Its Beautiful Corinthian Columns and Dome
Are Characteristics of the Most Beautiful Architectural Style
Used in the Construction of Roman Catholic Churches
After the Anti-Roman Newchurch of the New Order
Took over the "Institutional" Church in 1964
Sacrilegious Monstrosities Replaced the Roman Style

On December 21, 2020, U.S. President Donald Trump continued his support of traditional Catholic tradition by ordering that future federal buildings be constructed in "classical" Greco-Roman and "other traditional styles." This is the style that had traditionally been used not only for federal buildings, such as the White House and the Capitol, but also for Roman Catholic churches.

In the 1950s federal buildings started trending to unorthodox styles that produced a "discordant mixture" of ugly, non-classical buildings. Similarly, after the takeover of the "institutional" Church by the Newchurch of the New Order in 1964, which is certainly not the Roman Catholic Church, Newchurch spurned Roman Catholic tradition and heritage and instead built what amounted to pagan temples in the form of tennis rackets, quonset huts, and similar sacrilegious monstrosities.

President Trump has been in the vanguard of returning Western Civilization to its Greco-Roman, even Roman Catholic, roots. Previously, he had issued an Ash Wednesday proclamation and a Christmas proclamation that were, contrary to previous standards, worded along traditional Catholic lines. Trump has a strong connection with traditional Catholic thinking, though he was baptized in the Presbyterian sect.

True Catholics, the roots of Roman Catholicism goes far beyond the fact that Rome has been the seat of the Catholic Church. Roman Catholicism is a broad concept that certainly includes the great cultural heritage that deeply influenced the Church from ancient Rome and Greece, whose culture, by divine Providence, laid the path for the vast advance of Christianity in the first millennium under the aegis of the Roman empire.

"Monster in Our Midst": Paedophile "Lay Deacon"
Was Allowed by Newchurch to Become a Knights of Columbus Chaplain and Novus Ordo Lector

Mug Shot of "Lay Deacon" Gregory Brignac
Now These Non-celibate Newchurch Clergymen
Instituted in 1967 after the Vatican II Anti-council
Are Part of Newchurch's
Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust
Brignac Was Arrested Four Times for Sex Crimes
Yet Was Still Allowed to Serve Newchurch
As a Knights of Columbus Chaplain
And a Lector at Novus Ordo Messes

Not only Newchurch presbyters, Newbishops, Newcardinals, and Newpopes, but even those phony "lay deacons" are getting into the act of Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. Following the recommendations of the Vatican II Anti-council, the Newchurch of the New Order, which had replaced the Catholic Church as the institutional Church in 1964, concocted a new order of non-celibate "lay deacons." Any notion that married Newchurch clergy are any more "safe" around children is a pure fantasy. Newchurch corruption extends into every nook and cranny of the organization.

Take the case of "Lay Deacon" Gregory Brignac, of New Orleans, Louisiana. A "lay deacon" for twelve years, he was suspended in 1988 after being arrested three times for sexual assaults against children. He amassed a record of more than 10,000-page rap sheets in the New Orleans District Attorney's Office. Nevertheless, he was allowed to become chaplain of a Knights of Columbus chapter. (The Knights of Columbus have become a corrupted organization since being coopted by Newchurch.) He was also allowed to function as a lector at Novus Ordo Messes. He then committed a fourth sexual assault. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the New Orleans, Louisiana Times-Picayune.]

True Catholics, after Brignac's name appeared on a list of sex predators in Newchurch, 25 more children, both boys and girls as young as three years of age at the time of the crimes, have come forth to accuse him of sex crimes, including rape, as of December 21, 2020. Newchurch violated its own rules in that it entered into confidentiality settlements with the perpetrator so that his crimes would not embarrass Newchurch. Thus does Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust continue unabated.

Bernie Fellay Has Been Exiled
He Is There Expected to Wield the Whip

Or the New Superior Dictator, Davide Pagliarani
May Have Quickly Gotten Tired of Fellay's Notorious
Ill-tempered and Abusive Personality
As He Is Described by Those Who Work under Him

On December 1, 2020, the Neo-SSPX -- the Novus Ordo-bent organization that took over Archbishop Lefebvre's original traditional Society of St. Pius X in 1992 -- announced that its former Superior Dictator, Bernie Fellay, would be exiled to Dillwyn, Virginia, where the NSSPX maintains its Neo-seminary, which has been likened the San Quentin penal institution on the U.S. west coast. This news was slipped into a little-read NSSPX publication and has received little publicity.

Previously, Fellay had resided at Menzingen, Switzerland, the headquarters of the Neo-SSPX. Fellay has been pulling the strings behind his puppet, Davide Pagliarani, when Fellay himself had been "termed out" an obscene double twelve-year term as Superior Dictator and decided to put a puppet into the position during the 2018 elections. At the same time Fellay was officially added to the "counsellors," who help direct the activities of the NSSPX Superior Dictator. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Neo-SSPX.]

True Catholics, you may well wonder what has caused this reorientation of the Neo-SSPX world. The best rationale would be that by placing Fellay in the United States, the second most powerful country in the NSSPX world (the first being France) because of its being a NSSPX cash cow, his U.S. presence would work to assure adherence to the dictatorial regime of Fellay-Pagliarani and maintain the flow of lucre into the NSSPX's European dummy corporations. There is a second possibility: Fellay, who is a notoriously ill-tempered, even abusive, individual according to those that have to work under him, may have rubbed Pagliarani the wrong way and so was exiled across the Atlantic Ocean, far from the Menzingen power base. Time will tell.

A Great Catholic Composer Celebrates His Baptismal Day on December 17
Beethoven Himself Regarded His Catholic Solemn Mass as His Greatest Work

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Beethoven's Missa Solemnis

It Is Not Widely Realized
That Beethoven Was a (Traditional) Catholic
Although He Was Not Regular in Practicing the Faith
It Was Unquestionably in His Soul
As He Composed Two Years before His Death
The Work that He Considered His Greastest
The Missa Solemnis in D
Beethoven Did Reconcile Himself to the Catholic Faith
When, on His Deathbed
He Called a Priest for Extreme Unction

Although others may consider as Ludwig van Betthoven's (1770-1827) greatest work his Eroica Symphony, which introduced the Romantic Period, or his Fifth Symphony with its unforgettable four-note theme, or his Ninth "Choral" Symphony with its memorable "Ode an die Freude," Beethoven himself regarded as his greatest work his Missa Solemnis in D, a Catholic Solemn Mass. In the opinion of many, it is second only to the High Mass in B-minor of Johann Sebastian Bach (1685-1750), who was employed by the Lutheran Church, but whom some scholars believe was a closet Catholic.

Beethoven started out life correctly. He was baptized in a Catholic ceremony on December 17, 1770, a day after his birth. Like all too many, however, he fell away from the practice of his Catholic Faith. He never forgot his Catholic Faith, however. At age 38 he wrote his first Mass, the C-major Mass. At the mature age of 54, just two years before his death, he wrote the work that he himself considered his greatest: his Missa Solemnis in D-major.

Although Beethoven committed numerous mortal sins during his life for failing to worship his God in the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass, he did compose glorious music for the Catholic Church and was devoted to the text of Holy Mass. He stated about the purpose of his Missa Solemnis: ?My chief aim was to awaken and permanently instill religious feelings not only into the singers but also into the listeners.?

Curiously, Beethoven admired most highly as the model of true Church music the Renaissance composer, Giovanni Pierluigi da Palestrina (ca. 1525-1594), regarded as the most Catholic of all composers. When the Council of Trent (1545-1563) was about to ban polyphonic compositions at Mass in favor of only the Church's own Gregorian Chant, Palestrina composed the Missa Papae Marcelli, whose polyphony was of such beauty that the Sacred Council withdrew consideration of the ban.

Even though during his life, Beethoven had significantly fallen away from the practice of his Catholic Faith that inspired his music, he did in the end return to it when he was dying in Vienna in the year 1824 at age 56. He called for a priest and received the (traditional) Sacrament of Extreme Unction. Thus, the great composer who glorified God with his composer's pen, may have been forgiven his sins and may even now have the Beatific Vision of the glory of God, of Whom he composed with such beauty and fervor.

Bergoglio's Unheard of Action

On the Sinking Titanic
That Is the Newchurch of the New Order

Traditionally, priests may celebrate only one Mass each day. With special dispensation for good cause, a priest might be permitted to binate, i.e., celebrate two Mass on a single day. Three Masses are permitted only on Christmas, which has three separate Mass formularies in the Missale Romanum, and on All Souls Day, which likewise has three separate Mass formularies. Four Masses is completely untraditional and unheard of.

This multiplication of phony services, which Bergoglio on December 16, 2020, foisted off on Christmas, the Circumcision of Our Lord (the Fourth Joyful Mystery of the Holy Rosary, which Newchurch has rejected and for which it has substituted a different feastday), and Epiphany merely cheapens the Mass. Of course, Newchurch does not have a Mass, only the invalid (fake) Novus Ordo Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Novus Ordo Mess, so it is a cheap phony anyway. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]

True Catholics, as these Daily Commentaries from the TRADITIO Fathers have previously reported, attendance at Newchurch's fake "New Mess" had already, well before the Chinese Virus, fallen below ten per cent. So the question here is: why bother? Bergoglio's unheard of action is just more rearranging deck chairs on the sinking Titanic that is the Newchurch of the New Order.

Which Features the Text of Apocalypse 3:6:
"Ego Tabernaculum Dei cum Hominibus"
It Is Now Being Demolished
A New Structure Is to Be Built in the City Center
Only God Knows What a Monstrous Replacement
Newchurch May Fabricate

In 2010 and 2011, the historic Blessed Sacrament Cathedral in Christchurch, New Zealand, was severely damaged in earthquakes. Now Newchurch has announced that it will demolish the cathedral and build a new one in another location. The original cathedral, built in 1901, is listed as having international and national significance. It was designed based on classical Roman basilicas and was Neo-classical in style -- as Catholic as you can get -- going back to the original St. Peter's basilica built by the fourth-century Roman emperor, Constantine the Great.

The architect persuaded the bishop at the time that in contrast to the bishop's plan for a Neo-Gothic cathedral, a Neo-classical in style was more appropriate and more affordable. The resulting cathedral has been described as one of the finest examples of church architecture in Australasia. Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw, on his tour of New Zealand in 1934, compared the cathedral to the work of the Italian Renaissance architect, Filippo Brunelleschi.

The cathedral's magnificent pipe organ was left exposed in the earthquake's ruins. Its future is uncertain. Newchurch has notoriously tin ears and has become accustomed to listening to modern trash accompanied by guitar, like "Kumbaya" and "Leaving on a Jet Plane," than the sublime pipe organ works of such masters as Johann Sebastian Bach, believed by some to have been a closet Catholic. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by TV New Zealand.]

True Catholics, one can only hope that the replacement will not be one of those Newchurch monstrosities that constitute a sacrilege against God. The barbaric Newchurch loves to use such circumstances as earthquakes to reject the principles of Catholic architecture and build modernistic monstrosities in place of the original traditional Catholic structures. One remembers, for example, the "tennis racket" Newbasilica that replaced the original traditional Catholic basilica of Our Lady at Fatima, Portugal.

Proving that there Is No Honor among Thieves
Criminal Newcardinals Are Now Turning on One Another

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Rainer Woelki

Newcardinal Woelki, of Cologne, Germany
Turns Against His Predecessor Newcardinals
And Charges Them With a Criminal Cover-up
But He Himself Refuses to Do Anything
To Give Justice to the Child Victims
Except Commission Yet Another Report
As Newchurch's Great Sex
& Embezzlement Holocaust Continues Unabated

Things are getting so bad in Newchurch that the criminals are now turning on one another. The Newcardinal of Cologne, Germany, Rainer Woelki, has accused his two Newcardinal predecessors. Joseph Hoffner and Joachim Meisner, as "completely irresponsible" in cases of sexual assault against children over a period of decades. The most notorious case involves a presbyter who had been imprisoned for "repeated fornication with children and dependents." Nevertheless, the two Newcardinals put him back to work in Newchurch. And busy he was. Fifteen years later he was again convicted of sex crimes with minors.

A fourth Newbishop of Cologne admitted in this case: "I have incurred guilt." For decades the two Newcardinals, Hoffner and Meisner, looked the other way and never even referred the case to Newvatican for prosecution. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the London Tablet.]

True Catholics, Newcardinal Woelki himself, while accusing others of a criminal cover-up, has not released the report on the crimes. Instead, he has strung the victims out and commissioned yet another report. Meanwhile, the child victims have expressed rage at Woelki for himself continuing the cover-up. This latest episode in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust demonstrates once again that Newchurch has no intention on reforming itself. All its leaders can do is accuse each other while children continue to be assaulted under the regimes, and Newchurch's reputation and purported "authority" drain away to zero.

The McCarrick Report Condemned Newpope JPII-Wojtyla as a Paedophile Accomplice
Now Polish Newchurch "Professors" Are Trying to Rehabilitate the Kooky "Unsaint"

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

In 2006, Two Years after His Death
Hundreds Saw an Apparition
Of Newpope JPII-Wojtyla
Consumed in the Fires of Hell
As if to Put the Lie
To His Novus Ordo Con-anization
The "Unsaint" Has Now Been Implicated
In the Paedophile Activities
Of the Deposed Newcardinal McCarrick
By a Report from the Newvatican Itself

Just as we TRADITIO Fathers had predicted, when Francis-Bergoglio con-anized Newpope JPII-Wojtyla as a Novus Ordo "Unsaint" in 2014, he would rue the day. That day has now come, just six years after Bergoglio's despicable act. The McCarrick Report ("The Report on the Holy See?s Institutional Knowledge and Decision-making Related to Former Cardinal Theodore Edgar McCarrick"), issued by Newvatican on November 10, 2020, outed the Polish "Unsaint" as a paedophile accomplice with, inter alios, the notorious, now deposed, Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick, whom he made Newarchbishop of Washington, D.C. and Newcardinal, while reports had already been received in Newvatican about McCarrick's depravities.

Instead of learning from this gross error and its Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, Newchurch has once again gone into defense mode, trying to justify the "unsainthood" of the Wojtyla, who, in addition to his paedophile associations, was a kook -- a heretic and apostate who allowed himself to be anointed by a Hindu priestess with cow dung, who allowed a bare-breasted native woman to read the Epistle at his Novus Ordo Mess, who worshipped the gods with pagan aborigines in their "sacred woods," and more than 100 other sacrileges.

Right on call, 1,700 Newchurch "professors" on December 15, 2020, have protested the justified condemnation of the Unsaint after the release of the McCarrick Report. They claim that they are protesting to educate "young people who were born after his death" about the "truth," whereas the truth they should be teaching is that if you consort with and support paedophiles, your reputation will be mud -- as it should be. Until that happens, Newpopes, Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters will continue their worldwide predations on children unabated by criminal and ecclesiastical punishment.

True Catholics, JPII-Wojtyla is rightly being condemned for covering up paedophile acts among his Newchurch priests. Even Newchurchers are calling for the removal of his public memorials in Poland. It never seems to have occurred to these professorial mouthpieces for Newchurch corruption that a great moral lesson would be taught to the young people about whom they are so concerned by the dismantling of memorials to Newchurch's First Paedophile Newpope -- a moral lesson long overdue and apparently impossible for the deeply-corrupt Newchurch of Paul VI-Montini, JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio. Better yet, let Wojtyla be the first Newpope to be un-con-anized with a mea maxima culpa from the Third Paedophile Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio.

Great O Antiphon at Vespers: O Sapientia [O Wisdom]

The Great O Antiphons of Advent are a series of seven antiphons chanted or recited before and after the Magnificat of Vespers of the traditional Divine Office on the last seven days before the Vigil of Christmas (December 17-December 23). Their name comes from the Latin interjection of invocation, O, with which they all begin. Nothing similar precedes any other feast. Longing for the coming of the Messias, which is the characteristic mood of Advent, is seen most poetically in these O Antiphons. The melody to which they are chanted is marvelously expressive of the intense desire with which the patriarchs, the prophets, the Hebrew people, and now the Gentiles wait for God's presence in the Messias, Jesus Christ.

Newchurch "Brother" Admits Robbing from the Poor
By Feloniously Embezzling 34,000 Dollars from the Newchurch Collection Plate

Newpope Francis-Bergoglio

Newchurch "brother" Chistopher Trimpe -- who knew that there were any brothers left in Newchurch? -- insinuated himself into the position of Newparish office manager and, in that position, admitted to robbing the poor of more than 34,000 U.S. dollars from the collection plate. The funds were supposed to be used for "outreach" in the Syracuse, New York, area.

Trimpe was arrested on December 3, 2020, charged with felony theft from Resurrection Newparish in Woodstock, New York, famous for its drug- and sex-infested orgies of the late 1960s. Apparently, not much has changed in the fifty years since. Robbing the poor is one of the Four Biblical Sins that Cry out to Heaven for Justice, along with murder, sodomy, and defrauding works of their just wage, but just as Bergoglio, bereft of charity, has ignored sodomy, so he ignores robbing the poor in the name of his corrupt Newchurch. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Northwest Herald.]

True Catholics, if you have any notion that Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch is full of "love and mercy," think again. To the contrary, it is full of paedophiles, embezzlers, and thieves, just as was the church of the Scribes, Pharisees, and High Priests in Our Lord's time, against whom He inveighed so vehemently. One can only imagine what he would say of the far more deadly and corrupt Newchurch of the New Order. Newchurch is completely deaf to the words of St. John the Baptist, which ring in our ears this Advent: "Do penance: for the kingdom of heaven is at hand" (Matthew 3:2/DRV).

Newchurch's presbyter chaplain to the royal family of the Principality of Monoco has been charged by the U.S. Department of Justice on three counts of importing child pornography into the United States. William McCandless, an Oblate of St. Francis de Sales, served as chaplain to the royal family of Monaco from 2010 to 2017.

During his tenure he is charged with amassing a collection of thousands of images of child pornography, including the torture of very young children, while working for the royal family. These images he attempted to import into the United States when he returned in January 2017. McCandless operated in the name of Newchurch while he crossed international borders. McCandless now faces 60 years in prison. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the United States Department of Justice.]

True Catholics, any notion that Francis-Bergoglio has done anything to root out paedophile crimes from his regime is belied by this and many other cases of his Newchurch officials gone wild. And Bergoglio, despite his hundreds of millions of dollars of propaganda, seems to have little, if any, real care for the hundreds of thousands of child victims of his regime. Children and parents are morally bound to get out of Newchurch at the risk of their bodies and souls.

Which the Apostate Sacrilegiously Attempted to Install
In St. Peter's Archbasilica in 2019

On December 11, 2020, Francis-Bergoglio unveiled his creche for 2020 in St. Peter's Square. It was immediately mocked as "hideous." Visitors were scandalized.

Bergoglio's 2020 creche's bizarre 54 cylindrical figures were described by viewers as containing a "Mummified Mary," "Martians," Darth Vadar, the Robot from the Lost In Space TV series, "totems," ?toilet paper rolls,? "car parts," and "kids' toys." The childish display, framed by neon lights, even includes a Jewish rabbi, an astronaut, and an executioner to represent the apostate Bergoglio's hated Biblically-based capital punishment.

Traditionally, a manger scene is intended to evoke feelings of piety and devotion over the Nativity and Incarnation of Our Lord, but Bergoglio's monstrosity evokes just the opposite: irreverence and revulsion. It is more redolent of Bergoglio's beloved pagan Pachamama goddess idol, which the apostate sacrilegiously attempted to install in St. Peter's Archbasilica, until two courageous Austrian young men, so offended, surreptitiously tossed it into the Tiber River at dawn. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Breitbart.]

True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio attempted to justify this monstrous sacrilege by pontificating that viewers should not try to apply their aesthetic judgment to it. Of course not, Jorge! How could this trash compare with the masterworks of Michelangelo, Rafael, Bramante, and Bernini already there? To this nadir has Newchurch sunk in representing the once Holy Family, the Magi, and the shepherds at Bethlehem.

The Fast or Abstinence Prescribed by the Church under Pain of Mortal Sin?

The Days of Fast and Abstinence

Not All Are Bound by All Requirements
For Example, the Young and the Old
One Should Consult with His Confessor
Concerning Dispensations from the General Law
He May Dispense You from Certain Requirements
Depending upon the Exact Circumstances

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

What should a Catholic do who thinks that he cannot observe, because of genuine medical reasons, the fast or abstinence prescribed by the Church under pain of Mortal Sin? Are there prayers, actions, etc., that can make up somewhat for non-observance?


You are correct that under the Second Precept of the Church it is a Mortal Sin for those not dispensed from the precept not to fast and abstain on the days appointed. For further information on days of fast and abstinence, click on the TRADITIO Network's Traditional Liturgical Calendar department in the section "Liturgical Calendar by Month." This precept implements the teachings of Our Lord Jesus Christ and finds its origin in Apostolic Tradition. If you think that you have an excusing condition that warrants a dispensation, these are the steps that you need to take.

  1. Be sure that you know exactly what the requirements of fast and abstinence are. Many categories are dispensed; e.g., those younger than 21 or older than 59, workmen, pregnant women, etc., are dispensed from fasting.
  2. Check with your physician about just what your medical limitations are. For example, even with a medical condition, it is hard to imagine that one cannot abstain from fleshmeat on Fridays. We are aware of no medical condition that would require you to eat meat, when there are many other healthful alternatives for protein sustenance, such as fish, dairy products, and whole grains.
  3. Third, have a conversation with your confessor. Depending upon your exact circumstances, he may dispense you from certain requirements.

If you do not have a regular traditional pastor or confessor, you should consult the Official Traditional Catholic Directory, available from the homepage of the TRADITIO Traditional Roman Catholic Network,, to find one as conveniently local to you as is available, even if that involves some travel on occasion. Sometimes it may take some effort, but in that effort you will enhance the grace of Faith and will develop a relationship with a confessor who can personally come to know your spiritual state and prudently guide you.

Without Ministers (Deacon and Subdeacon)?"

From: Tyler
Missa Cantata

The Ceremonial Additions of a Missa Cantata
Possess Great Spiritual Value
And Confer Additional Efficacy
This Efficacy Includes Greater Honor to God
And Greater Satisfactory Benefit
To Those Who Are Recipients
Of the Fruits of the Holy Sacrifice
From This Standpoint We Can Say
That a Missa Cantata Offered for a Soul in Purgatory
Is More Beneficial than a Low Mass

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

Is it permitted for a traditional bishop to sing a Missa Cantata sine Ministris, i.e., without deacon and subdeacon, as a traditional priest may, or must he say only a Pontifical Low Mass or a Pontifical High Mass with deacon and subdeacon? Although traditional Catholic bishops have sung Missae Cantatae for years, some Newchurch "Motu" organizations, who use the half Novus Ordo 1962 Mess, will not allow their bishops to sing a Missa Cantata without ministers.

Does the centuries-old practice of allowing a Missa Cantata sine Ministris for churches with only one priest apply for bishops, in that if that one priest were to be a bishop, he would then not be precluded from offering a Mass more solemn than a Low Mass, especially in case of necessity when there are no deacons and subdeacons available (which is now the common situation).


We know of nothing that would prevent a traditional bishop from celebrating a Missa Cantata without a deacon and subdeacon. After all, the episcopacy is the fullness of the priesthood, so it is difficult to see why a bishop would be prohibited from doing what a priest could do. We find nothing that explicitly prohibits a bishop from celebrating in this way, mutatis mutandis.

You seem to be arguing in favor of the practice from a kind of epikeia, or at least a kind of necessity. Surely, in these times when traditional bishops do not have ample numbers of assisting clergy, it is hard to see why a bishop choosing to celebrate a Missa Cantata sine Ministris would violate any important principle, at least one strong enough to prevent the offering of the nobler rite with its concomitant additional grace, particularly if only the bishop is available to do so. The argument in favor of such a practice would be even stronger in the case of a Requiem Missa Cantata, which is the preferable form over a Low Mass in the case of an Exequial Mass.

It should be noted that the ceremonial additions of a Missa Cantata possess great spiritual value because of the impretation of the Church and confer additional efficacy. This efficacy includes greater honor to God and greater satisfactory benefit for those who are the recipients of the fruits of the Holy Sacrifice. From this standpoint we can say that a Missa Cantata offered for a soul in purgatory is more beneficial than a Low Mass. Pope Pius XII pronounced (Mediator Dei of 1947): "The Church desires to facilitate and encourage the solemn (or at least sung) Mass which "has a dignity all its own by reason of the solemnity of its rites and the splendor of its ceremonies."

On December 5, 2020, Bergoglio changed the name of his Financial Intelligence Authority and changed its statues yet again. It was only in 2013, that he had set up the agency, and now it has to be renamed and restructured. The changes of his predecessor, Benedict-Ratzinger also had no effect: embezzlement increased and bankruptcy looms. Financial corruption and crime has dogged Newvatican for decades, under whatever name and statutes the finances of the corrupt Newvatican has operated.

Newchurch's latest criminal enterprise involved the embezzlement by Newcardinals and other Bergoglian officials of some 425,000,000 U.S. dollars in the London real-estate market. Who knows what secret role Bergoglio himself had in this financial holocaust. It is hard to imagine that he was ignorant of what was going on right under his nose. Much of the money was embezzled from donations from clueless Newchurchers, who still continue to put money into the criminal collection plate. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]

True Catholics, like a true Marxist/Modernist, Francis-Bergoglio thinks that the "solution" to every problem is to pass a law, just another law that will be violated because ultimately it is the morality of the lawgiver and his subordinates that controls virtuous or vicious behavior. Bergoglio, as a Modernist heretic, has presided over Newchurch's Paedophile and Embezzlement Empire for over seven years now, and the situation has just gotten worse. With a leader like him and his predecessor Newpopes after the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), Newchurch is dying. The death of that immoral and apostate organization, which is certainly not the Catholic Church, is long overdue.

Yes, it would be gravely sinful, as it would involve you in heresy and sacrilege. Remember: Newchurch is not Catholic; it is worse than Protestant. Would you be a sponsor in at a Methodist "confirmation"? Moreover, the Sacrament of Confirmation was invalidated in 1971 in the New Order to a Protestant form, so you would be associating yourself with a fake "sacrament," a very grave sin indeed.

Granted, your grandson undoubtedly has no idea of what Catholic teaching is. He has been subjected only to the heretic Novus Ordo sect. He undoubtedly had good intentions, wanting to show respect for you. That is not a sin on his part because he did it out of ignorance, but knowingly involving in a fake "sacrament" is a very grave sin. But what a wonderful opportunity God has given you to educate your grandson about true Catholicism and to begin to convert a young soul to God! You should take your grandson aside and in a kind way explain why you cannot accede to his request, as it would involve you in heresy and sacrilege.

The Newarchdiocese of Brisbane, Australia, has admitted the truth: fewer than 10 per cent of Newchurchers are even bothering to go to Mess. And this was before the Chinese Virus hit in 2019. In Brisbane, which is just like most other Newdioceses, 700,000 claim to be Newchurchers, but as few as 56,000 ever set foot in a Newchurch.

The much touted "New Mess" in the vulgar tongues has failed utterly in Brisbane, as around the world. The fake Mess has completely failed to interest particularly married middle-aged men, who were greatly attracted to the Traditional Latin Mass and the true Catholic Faith and morals and who once formed the backbone of the Catholic Church.

In a panic, Brisbane will resort not to clearing out the Newchurch heresies, the phony "New Mess" and its unordained presbyters, but will instead attempt an "ad campaign" to try to get the hordes of uninterested Newchurchers back. Such campaigns have, in the past, simply put money into advertising executives' pockets and have utterly failed to convince Newchurchers to come to Mess. Flyers, posters, and videos don't do it. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Brisbane, Australia Catholic Leader.]

True Catholics, even the Brisbane Newarchbishop admits he doesn't expect much from the ad campaign. He says he'll be lucky if he gets a contact from even one per cent of the dropouts. His problem is much more basic than that. He has a bad product -- Newchurch is not Catholic -- and no ad campaign is going to change that!

With all the attention being paid to the infamous and now-deposed paedophile Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick, of Washington, D.C., it has generally escaped attention that, according to Newvatican's McCarrick Report issued on November 10, 2020, his successor and accomplice, Donald Wuerl, was also outed as a liar who knew full well what crimes McCarrick was committing all those years.

Just as in the paedophile scandal of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where Wuerl was Newbishop from 1988 to 2006 and claimed ignorance of the crimes going on under his nose. Wuerl's protestations of ignorance about McCarrick was vitiated by the 450-page Newvatican report. The evidence clearly shows that he knew. So clear is the evidence, in fact, that Wuerl was forced to abdicate as Newcardinal-Newarchbishop of Washington, D.C., in 2018. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]

True Catholics, the Newvatican Report details instance after instance of Wuerl's detailed knowledge about McCarrick's whereabouts and crimes. Wuerl had both written and oral contacts with Francis-Bergoglio and his top officials at Newvatican concerning McCarrick. Wuerl warned Newvatican that association with McCarrick would soon blow up in the press. Yet Bergoglio kept McCarrick on because of his continuing fund-raising for that Newpope's corrupt regime. It was only when McCarrick's decades-long sex crimes against children and young seminarians came out in the press that Bergoglio reluctantly sidelined him.

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

Because of the Chinese Virus shutdown in my area, I have been unable to attend the Traditional Latin Mass, but instead attend Mass online. The local Newchurch parish offers "communion" administered by lay deacons. Is this an option for me? With the December 2, 2020, decision of the United States Supreme Court overruling Leftist officials that have shut down the Mass, we now have hope that the true Mass will be restored once again in our region.


First of all, let us correct the notion that one "attends Mass online." Holy Mass is attended as a Sacrament only in person. Sacraments are personal; that is how Our Lord established it. Nor, for example, can the Sacrament of Penance be administered in writing or by telephone. You could just as well say that by reading a handmissal you are "attending Mass."

Looking at electrons flitting on a screen and calling it a "Mass," in addition to being theologically invalid, simply makes people lazy and distracted. Better to engage in personal prayer and work hard for the return of the real thing against those Leftist officials, in areas unfortunate enough to be shut down.

For further information on what to do when you are physically impeded from attending Holy Mass in an extraordinary situation, click on ABSENT: Method of Hearing Mass Spiritually for the Absent." in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics) department.

To your second question, are you ever permitted to receive "communion" from the New Order sect, whether from a presbyter (the New Order has not ordained priests since 1968) or a "lay deacon" (which is a fabrication of the New Order concocted in 1967), the answer is: ABSOLUTELY NOT! Neither are Novus Ordo clergy ordained (they are merely "installed" like Protestant ministers) nor are their Messes and "communions" valid. All the Newchurch of the New Order can offer is fake (invalid) cookies and Kool-Aid, worse than the Protestant heretics.

Francis-Bergoglio Preaches the Heresy of the "Inculturated" New Mess
He Personally Simulated This Paganism Complete with Dancing Girls

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
African Mess

Francis-Bergoglio Personally Presides
Over an "Inculturated" African Mess
Complete with Dancing Girls
This Paganism Was Introduced
By the Vatican II Anti-Council
And Bergoglio Wants to Extend the Blasphemy
To More Novus Ordo Messes around the World

One of the greatest heresies of Vatican II Anti-council is that of Oecumenism, previously condemned Syncretism, which, inter alia, destroyed the true Mass in Newchurch and replaced it with a fake (invalid) New Mess. It was, in essence, Newchurch's embracing of paganism. Part of this replacement including an "inculturated" version of the New Mess, fabricated by each nation or region according to its own secular practice. So, for example, Messes in Africa could have Newchurchers dancing to tom-tomsl In the West, Messes could feature profane instruments and songs, such as electric rock guitars and "Leaving on a Jet Plane" for funerals.

This "liturgical tribalism," approved by Newchurch in 1994, gave formal approval to "handclapping, rhythmic swaying, and dance movements" in the New Mess (manuum percussio seu plausus, fluctuationes rhythmicae seu motus modulati, aut choreae motus). The crazy "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla especially went bonkers for this paganism. In August 2002, during the "inculturated liturgy" at the Novus Ordo beatification of Juan Bautista and Jacinto de los Angeles, he allowed an Indian woman to approach him in the sanctuary and rub him down with smoked herbs that the pagans believe are supposed to purify the subject and exorcise "evil spirits."

True Catholics, on December 1, 2020, Newpope Francis-Bergoglio gave his full-throated approval to this paganism. blasphemously stating: "the inculturated liturgy can teach Catholics [sic] to better [sic] appreciate the diverse gifts of the Holy Spirit [sic]." He himself incorporated himself into the blasphemy and heresy of a simulated pagan African Zaire Mess on the First Sunday of Advent 2020 and wants this paganism to spread to other regions. If Newchurchers think that the "New Mess" of 1969 is bad, they'd better gird themselves for far worse under the Modernist/Marxist Newpope.

Yet Another EWTN Presbyter Falls
George Rutler Is Accused of Sexual Assault and Removed from His Duties

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
George Rutler

Yet Another Corrupt Presbyter Falls
From the Corrupt Newchurch EWTN Cable Network
After the Drug Addict Presbyter John Corapi
And the Paedophile Supporter Presbyter
Benedict Groeschel Were Canned
Now the Bizarre Presbyter George Rutler
The Bald Headed High Anglican Look-alike
Has Been Removed from His Duties
Accused of Assault a Young Security Guard

The Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN), U.S. Newchurch's cable television network, was founded in 1981 by a Newchurch nun, Mother Angelica, who was at least somewhat conservative, eschewing the worst aspects of the New Order. Since she retired in 2001 because of serious health issues, the network has fallen into the worst of the New Order heresies, documented in the 2006 book, EWTN: A Network Gone Wrong.

The most notorious previous example of EWTN's fall was presbyter John Corapi, who was exposed in 2011 as a drug and alcohol addict who violated his vow of chastity with a prostitute and his vow of poverty by purchasing more than one million U.S. dollars in real estate. His frenzied supports claimed that the Devil was trying to attack his reputation -- until, that is, the truth of the allegation was proven indisputable. Then there was the bearded Newfranciscan presbyter Benedict Groeschel, who in 2012, as a New York Newarchdiocese official, attempted to excuse presbyters' sex crime rampage against children. Both were canned from the network.

Now presbyter George Rutler, the bizarre bald-headed presbyter who used to strut around the studio set dressed like a High Anglican Protestant -- in spite of the fact that Rutler was supposed to have "converted" from this heresy -- is being investigated by the New York District Attorney for sexually assaulting a new 22-year-old female security guard on November 4, 2020, at 01:20, in his Newchurch rectory. Rutler has been removed from his presbyteral duties. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

True Catholics, EWTN tries to dazzle viewers with a few words of Latin in its Novus Ordo Mess, while using chalices and linens that could have come from some European king. EWTN is another instance of how the Neocons try to deceive the clueless Novus Ordo "conservatives," who are ignorant that whatever bells and whistles enshroud the Novus Ordo Mess, it is still no more valid than a Protestant High Anglican service.

Newpope Francis-Bergoglio Contradicts Pius XII's Catholic Moral Teaching
Thus, He Once Again Proves that Newpopes and Their Newchurch Are Not the Catholic Church

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Mantegna's Calvary

Andrea Mantegna's Depiction
Of the Condemned on Calvary (ca. 1459)
The Good Thief Tells the Bad Thief:
"We Are Receiving What Our Deeds Deserved"
The Church's Teaching
On the Morality of Capital Punishment
Was Clearly Stated by the Dogmatic Council of Trent
And Again by Pope Pius XII
Francis-Bergoglio Has Now Contradicted
The Teaching of the Catholic Church
And of Sacred Scripture
To Prove that Newchurch and Its Newpopes
Are Most Certainly Not the Catholic Church

One of the proofs that the Newchurch of the New Order is most certainly not the Catholic Church is the fact that the Newpopes, i.e., the pseudo-popes of the Newchurch founded in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council, teach a different doctrine from what popes of the Roman Catholic Church teach.

On December 1, 2020, the Modernist/Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio proclaimed: ?Let us keep in mind that not even a murderer loses his personal dignity -- God Himself guarantees it. The firm rejection of the death penalty shows to what extent it is possible to recognize the inalienable dignity of every human being.? [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]

That statement essentially contradicts the moral doctrine of Sacred Scripture and the Catholic Church, as rightly proclaimed by Pope Pius XII on September 13, 1952:

Even when there is question of a person condemned to death, the state does not take away the "right" of the individual to life. It is then reserved to the public authority to deprive the condemned person of the "benefit" of life in expiation for his guilt, after he himself, by his crime, has already deprived himself of his right to life. (Acta Apostolicae Sedis XLIV (1952), p. 787)

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 "Capital Punishment/Death Penalty."

The dogmatic Council of Trent left no doubt about the morality and even the necessity of the death penalty for serious crimes. That Sacred Council decreed: "[Well founded is] the right and duty of legitimate public authority to punish malefactors by means of penalties commensurate with the gravity of the crime, not excluding, in cases of extreme gravity, the death penalty." In the Catechism of that Council, authored principally by St. Charles Borromeo, this Catholic doctrine is enlarged upon:

Again, this prohibition [against killing] does not apply to the civil magistrate, to whom is entrusted the power of life and death, by the legal and judicious exercise of which he punishes the guilty and protects the innocent. The use of the civil sword, when wielded by the hand of justice, far from involving the crime of murder, is an act of paramount obedience to this commandment, which prohibits murder. The end of the commandment is the preservation and sanctity of human life, and to the attainment of this end, the punishments inflicted by the civil magistrate, who is the legitimate avenger of crime, naturally tend, giving security to life by repressing outrage and violence.

True Catholics, for some reason Newchurch has a Leftist anti-Catholic bugaboo about the death penalty for serious crime, which is recognized in both the Old and New Testaments. The "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla even tried to change the Newcathechism of Newchurch to condemn the death penalty, but there was so much public opposition even from Newchurchers to his attempt to change Biblical and Catholic doctrine that Wojtyla had to recall the Newcatechisms containing the New Order change and had to reissue the Newcatehcism with the Catholic doctrine restored.

A Reader Asks: "Could You Explain When a Proper Last Gospel Occurs
And the Server Moves the Missal from the Epistle to the Gospel Side of the Altar?"

From: Christopher
St. Lawrence Press Ordo

An Ordo Is Issued for Each Year
That Traditional Priests
And the Most Advanced Laypeople
Use to Determine the Mass and Divine Office
To Be Celebrated for Each Day of the Year
The St. Lawrence Press Ordo
Has Been Issued for Many Years
It Is the Most Detailed
And Gives Much More Information
Than a Simple Calendar Can Give

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

In the fully traditional Latin Mass, sometimes the Last Gospel is not the usual prologue to the Gospel of St. John ("In principio erat Verbum....), but another Gospel. In these cases, I, as a Mass server, have noted that I must move the book from the Epistle to the Gospel side, and the congregation must turn to a different page in its handmissals. Could you explain when these proper Last Gospels occur?


You are observant to note this rubric. The fully Traditional Latin Mass has much more liturgical richness than does the Half Novus Ordo 1962/"Indult"/"Motu" Mess, which leans toward the banal simpleness of the Protestant/Masonic/Pagan Novus Ordo service of 1969 ("New Mess"). Whereas, in almost every case, the Last Gospel in the "1962 Mess" is the prologue to St. John's Gospel, the fully Traditional Latin Mass not infrequently uses a different Gospel as the Last Gospel.

The rubrics are somewhat complicated, but are indicated in the Ordo for the year. Essentially, as far as Sundays are concerned, when a high feastday occurs, i.e., a Double Feast of the First or Second Class, or a Double Major Feast, the Gospel of that feast is read or chanted as the Gospel of the Mass, and the Gospel of the Sunday is read as the Last Gospel. As Sunday is the Lord's Day, the Gospel of the Sunday must be commemorated. The ranks of feasts are displayed in the heading to these Daily Commentaries from the TRADITIO Fathers or in TRADITIO Network's Traditional Liturgical Calendar department.

The Mass server must be aware of these cases where a proper Last Gospel is read because he must move the altar missal to the Gospel side after the priest reads or chants the Ite, Missa Est (or Benedicamus Domino in Advent and Lent, or Requiescat in Pace at a Requiem Mass). In practice, this means that the following feastdays, inter alia, have a proper Last Gospel, not that of St. John:

Fortunately, the Ordo for the year figures all of this out. The St. Lawrence Press produces the best and most complete annual Ordo available, the Ordo Recitandi Officii Divini Sacrique Peragendi [Order of Reciting the Divine Office and Carrying Out the Sacred Rite], entirely in Latin and in the traditional form. It contains detailed information about the Mass and Divine Office that priests and the most advanced laypeople use, much more complete in its detail than any calendar can give.

Child Victims of Francis-Bergoglio's Intimate Newbishop Gustavo Zanchetta
Are Still Waiting for Justice in Yet Another Cover-up by the Third Paedophile Newpope

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Francis-Bergoglio & Gustavo Zanchetta

Do Not Touch This Man!
Newbishop Gustavo Zanchetta and His Intimate
The Third Paedophile Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio
Zanchetta Has Been Caught in Sexual Sins
Financial "Irregularities," and Abuse of Power
Yet Bergoglio Appointed Him to a Special Position
Of Financial Responsibility in the Newvatican Curia
Although Zanchetta Is Recognized
As the South American McCarrick
Bergoglio Refuses to Can the Man

In Francis-Bergoglio's native Argentina, the young victims of Bergoglio's Newbishop are still waiting for justice from the Newpope who formerly was Buenos Aires Newarchbishop. The perpetrator is Bergoglio's intimate, Newbishop Gustavo Zanchetta, whom Bergoglio as of November 2020 is still employing in his Newvatican curia, where he has a special position of responsibility as an "assessor" for Bergoglio. Zanchetta is recognized as the South American version of the deposed Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick, of Washington, D.C.

Bergoglio appointed his intimate in 2013 as one of his first acts of "love." Yet Zanchetta has been openly implicated in both homosexual assignations with 18-year-old Newseminarians and financial "irregularities." The proof was in the subpoenaed pornography recorded on his cell phone and photos of the "action" in his bedroom. Zanchetta was also accused by the Argentinean Newpapal Nuncio of abuse of power as Bergoglio's Newbishop. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Crux News Service.]

True Catholics, Newvatican's lame excuse why Zanchetta has not been canned is the specious: "The China Virus did it!" Francis-Bergoglio time and again has remained attached at the hip to his criminal intimates like Zanchetta and McCarrick. It is for this reason that the worst paedophiles and embezzlers remain in top positions in Bergoglio's administration and are never canned until the outcry from the public is so loud that he cannot ignore it. Such is the head of the apostate Newchurch of the New Order.

More Leftist Anti-Catholic Vandalism Attacks the Venerated Statue
Of the Blessed Virgin Mary in Venice, Italy, One of Many Such Vandalisms around the World

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Marian Statue Decapitated

The Venerated Statue of the Blessed Virgin Mary
Was the Target of a Vandal in Venice, Italy
It Was Part of a Leftist Anti-Catholic
Wave of Vandalism around the World
Unfortunately, the Clueless Ignoscenti
Are Too Clueless to Distinguish
Between the Criminal, Fake Newchurch
With Its Paedophile, Embezzling Newclergy and Newpopes
And the Glories of the Traditional Roman Catholic Church
That It Has Tried to Replace

The latest sacrilege in the wave of Leftist anti-Catholic vandalism going on around the world was to Our Lady on November 26, 2020, when a vandal was so bold as to decapitate her venerated statue in Venice, Italy, and severed her hands. Venice police did act quickly and arrested the vandal. Venice's mayor ordered that the venerated statue would be repaired quickly.

One has only to think of the 2019 burning of Notre-dame Cathedral in Paris, the worst of several acts of arson against historic Catholic churches all over France. In the United States, statues of Padre Junipero Serra, founder of the California Missions, has been a target in 2020. It seems that these great churches and statues, built by traditional Catholics, have become targets as they have been taken over by the fake Newchurch of the New Order, with its paedophile, embezzling Newclergy and Newpopes. The ignoscenti are too clueless to distinguish between the criminal, fake Newchurch and the glories of the traditional Roman Catholic Church that it has tried to replace. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]

True Catholics, this is the nadir to which the Newchurch of the New Order has brought us in sixty years since it was founded in 1964 to replace the Roman Catholic Church as the institutional Church. Now sacrilege abounds as people confuse the criminality of the fake Newchurch with the true Catholic Church, which now exists in tens of thousands of independent traditional Catholic Mass sites around the world, waiting for the fall of the imposter Newchurch and the resurrection of traditional Roman Catholicism in God's good time.
