Suppressed in all the propaganda about Francis-Bergoglio's "apology tour" to Canada July 24-29, 2022, is that fact that when this brouhaha first began with the Canadian Indians, a group of older Indians went public to say that they had never seen sexual abuse at Canadian residential schools, but that, to the contrary, they had received a good education from the Church back in the 1940s and 1950s. Because these Indians didn't follow Bergoglio's propaganda script, they were shut down, first by the professional victims among the Indians and then by the Leftist news media.
The Indian chiefs in Canada -- some of them -- are known for their perfidy. They collect reparation and other payments from the Government, and now from Newchurch. They are perennial, professional "welfare" recipients. The chiefs head for Las Vegas to engage in wild gambling and spend their ill-gotten government money there. Meanwhile, elderly poor Indians freeze half to death in unheated portable-homes in Northern Manitoba, and across Canada. The money does not go directly to the victims anyway: it is controlled and (mis)managed by the chiefs.
Newchurch does not even attempt to investigate the cases. Instead, it simply accepts the allegations as true and then moans about how guilty they feel. Newchurch apologizes for things done by unnamed clergy before 1950, who are now all conveniently dead. Leftists, like Francis-Bergoglio and his Newchurch of the New Order, see sin as a collective fault, not a personal one. No individual ever commits a sin; each of them is as pure as the driven Canadian snow. They are all pseudo-saints, like JPII-Wojtyla, the First Paedophile Newpope, with Benedict-Ratzinger, the Second Paedophile Newpope, and Francis-Bergoglio, the Third Paedophile Newpope, waiting in the wings for a lily-white Novus Ordo shivaree (funeral) and instantaneous fake Newsainthood!
On July 24, 2022, a Newchurch presbyter from Milan, Italy, Mattia Bernasconi, simulated a New Mess of 1969 on an inflatable lounge chair in the Mediterranean Sea, and while he was half nude at that, as were the Newchurch congregants. Even some of the clueless Newchurchers found the "Inflatable Mess at Sea" too much and reported the presbyter to the Italian police.
The fake (invalid) "New Mess, that is, the fake (invalid) Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Order service that the Newchurch sect -- which is most certainly not the Traditional Latin Mass --adopted in 1964 in place of Traditional Latin Mass after the Vatican II Anti-council, was officially proclaimed the "Ordinary Mess" of Newchurch in 2007 by Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger -- no traditionalist he! Since the founding of the Newchurch of the New Order in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council, there has been no dearth of these bizarre "Messes," which also take place every Sunday in Newdioceses around the world. The New Mess is so corrupt that it can't help but scream blasphemy, idolatry, and sacrilege. For other examples of the fake New Mess of Newchurch, click on the TRADITIO Network's Novus Ordo Service Photo Gallery department.
The Newarchbishop of Crotone, the Least Reverend Giuseppe Agostino, didn't seem to have a great problem with what was objectively blasphemy, idolatry, and sacrilege. He only mildly chided the presbyter for "too much superficiality." The presbyter himself offered only the mildest of apologies and then went on a self-promoting press tour. The Italian prosecutor, however, did not think the incident a light matter and has started an investigation leading to criminal charges against the presbyter for perpetrating an "offense to a religious confession." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Corriere della Sera.]
Traditional Catholics, there was not a word of condemnation from Francis-Bergoglio. He was too busy taking off his mitre and donning an Indian-feather headdress on his Canadian junket, apologizing to the aboriginals there for edifying them with a fine Catholic, Classical education. Recently, he has been leading a pogrom against the Half New Order New Latin Mess of 1962, which itself is a corruption of the Traditional Latin Mess. Truly, Newchurch, its Newpopes, and its Newchurchers are literally on their way to Hell in a handbasket!
Every Catholic knows what makes a Confession valid: you must have true contrition for the sins that you have committed, and you must have a firm purpose of amendment not to commit those sins again. While Francis-Bergoglio pretends to apologize for the sex crimes again children that he and his predecessor Newpopes Benedict-Ratzinger and JPII-Wojtyla supported with impunity on the part of their criminal Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters, he is at the same time supporting the continuation, even acceleration, of these crimes.
As usual, Bergoglio in his contrived "apologies" on his junket to Canada, July 24-29, 2022, merely sheds a few crocodile tears. He tries to turn any blame away from himself personally, even though in the nine years of his regime, the statistics show that the problem had even gotten worse. Bergoglio, like his Newpope predecessors, refuses to hold his criminal Newclergy responsible for their rapes, sodomies, and sexual assaults against children as young as six months. As recently reported in these Daily Commentaries, the German [New]bishops' Conference reported four Newbishops to him for disciplinary action on account of their sex crimes, but what did Bergoglio do with them? He immediately returned them to their positions to continue their predations on the children. That has been the pattern. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Axios.]
Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio in fact didn't mention the rampant sex crimes against children perpetrated by his regime and those of his two predecessors. Instead, he tried to shift the blame by focusing on something he called "cultural genocide." The child victims probably knew nothing about this fancy of Bergoglio's, but they surely felt the pain of rape and sodomy perpetrated against them by Newchurch clergy. Moreover, the Canadian aboriginals did benefit from the fine education that was provided them before the advent of Newchurch in 1964 by, almost without exception, dedicated nuns, brothers, and priests, who disappeared after the Newchurch of the New Order took over in 1964.
On December 22, 2022, Newcardinal Wilton Gregory, of Washington, D.C., announced the shutdown of the Half New Order "Extraordinary" New Latin Messes of 1962 in all the Newparishes of the Newarchdiocese, in accordance with the decrees "Traditionis custodes" and "Desiderio desideravi" of Francis-Bergoglio. As a result, the pseudo-traditionalists are once more griping against the Newpope and the Newchurch of the New Order, to which they have been playing the sycophants ever since the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) founded the Newchurch of the New Order to replace the Catholic Church.
The pseudo-traditionalist gripers have no one but themselves to blame. If they had cut their ties with the apostate Newchurch of the New Order and instead remained affiliated to the Catholic Church, they would not be stymied, as they are now. In fact, there are several Traditional Catholic priests in the D.C. area who did just that: cut their ties with Francis-Bergoglio and continued to offer the Traditional Latin Mass. The New Latin Mess is most certainly not the immemorial Traditional Latin Mass , although it is often false advertised as such by the pseudo-traditionalists. The New Latin Mess of 1962 was the corrupt work of the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini to serve as a stepping stone to the fully heretical Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Mess (Novus Ordo) of 1969. And did the pseudo-traditionalists ever fall for Bugnini's ruse, and they are now paying dearly for their sellout!
Gregory was even warned that half the pseudo-traditionalists would leave St. Mary Mother of God Newparish, a major site for the New Latin Mess currently, which that Gregory has now ordered shut down. Some are saying that the Newparish itself will be closed entirely. According to Bergoglio's decrees, Newparishes cannot be sites for the New Latin Mess, so Gregory has designated three non-Newparishes as the only "approved" sites: a Franciscan monastery in D.C., a chapel in Maryland, and a mission church in Maryland. This has been the history of the New Latin Mass for sixty years: it is merely a political plaything for apostate Newpopes and Newbishops to extort money from pseudo-traditionalists. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Washington Post.
Traditional Catholics, it is actually a good thing that these fraudulent "Extraordinary" New Latin Messes of 1962 are being shut down. At least the pseudo-traditionalists won't be deluded any longer. One cannot be a "Half Catholic." The Catholic Faith is not a smorgasbord, of sacred and profane, of Latin and vulgar tongues. Either you have the true Catholic Mass, the true Catholic Sacraments, true Catholic doctrine, and true Catholic morality -- one hundred per cent -- or you do not have the faith. Just so, Newchurch does not have the Catholic Faith any more than the Protestants do. It isn't as it there aren't Traditional Catholic alternatives in the D.C. area and all over the world.

In a shockingly hypocritical decision on July 14, 2022, the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops" has approved the fostering of Newchurch children by homosexual adults. (Of course, these are not "Catholic bishops" at all, but merely unconsecrated Newchurch ministers, no more valid than Protestant bishops.)
This case provides further proof that the Newchurch of the New Order is most certainly not the Catholic Church and does not share its moral teachings, Sacred Scripture, or Sacred Tradition. The first Newchurch "fosterer" will be an unmarried Lesbian, who was bound and determined to take on a child who had illegally invaded the United States.
Traditional Catholics, the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops" caved in to the threat of a frivolous lawsuit and took its immoral action, even though the U.S. Supreme Court had ruled in 2021 that religious organizations could set their own rules for foster care. The USCCB is currently considering changing its policy that currently bars "gay-married" people from fostering children. In Newchurch, everything just goes from bad to worse. That is why no true Catholic can have anything to do with it, but must shun Newchurch entirely for the apostate sect it is.
Far more virulent than the uprising in the Western Newchurch of the New Order about the Half New Order "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962 is that going on in the East, where the Eastern Newchurchers are in fierce revolt against Francis-Bergoglio over the Eastern Newchurch rites. It should, however, be pointed out that the Eastern rites in Newchurch are just as invalid as the Western rites. 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 "Eastern Rite 'Option.'"
From the Church’s earliest days, Syro-Malabar (East Syriac) priests celebrated the Eucharistic liturgy facing east (ad orientem), away from the congregation. They continued to do so during the period of Latinization, an era in which Western clergy also celebrated Mass ad orientem. When after the heretic Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), Newchurch attempted to turn around its altars -- now called "eucaristic dinner tables" -- many of the Easterners refused to change their traditional liturgy. Even when Bergoglio himself tried to intervene and impose a new liturgy upon the ancient Syro-Mabars, with the presbyter facing toward the congregation, the more traditionalist Easterners rejected his intervention and took their rejection into the streets.
In August 2021, when Bergoglio tried to enforce the non-traditionalist Eastern liturgy, the esteemed Newarchbishop of Ernakulam-Angamaly, six other Newbishops, and a growing number of presbyters refused to yield to Bergoglio, stating that his decision to impose the new liturgy "was not reached through proper, mandatory consultations, and transparent procedures" and was therefore "a cause of disunity in the Church." They then went onto a very public hunger strike against Bergoglio.
Yet on March 25, 2022, Bergoglio doubled down and ordered the implementation of the new liturgy. As a result, a melee broke out at the Newarchbishop's house and spilled out into the streets. When on April 10, 2022, an attempt was made to impose Bergoglio's new liturgy at the Syro-Malabar Newcathedral Basilica, 62 police officers and a commando force of 12 had to be called in to restore order. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Service.]
Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio has attempted to intervene in the Eastern Rite revolt by acting as a dictator. He has put his "authority" on the line and been rejected by a large part of the Eastern Newchurch. He has brought the matter literally to fisticuffs. No end is in sight. The traditionalist Easterners may now reject Bergoglio entirely and go independent, just as so many Traditional Catholics in the West have already done since the heretic Vatican II Anti-council.
Francis-Bergoglio will follow in the footsteps of his Newpope predecessor JPII-Wojtyla and profess paganism during his Newpapal junket to Canada, July 24-29, 2022. The Unsaint Wojtyla was notorious for engaging in pagan practices, including participating at a semi-nude Mess in Africa and being "anointed" with cow dung by a Hindu priestess in India. There are scores of pagan practices engaged in by Wojtyla, as previously enumerated in these Daily Commentaries.
The Newvatican has announced that while in Canada, Bergogio will subject himself to pagan "smudging" by a shaman witch doctor. In this blasphemous, sacrilegious, and idolatrous pagan ritual, a Grave Sin against the First Commandment of God, the witch doctor will process into the church carrying a bowl of smoldering cedar, sage, sweetgrass, and tobacco. The witch doctor will use a feather to direct the smoke toward Bergoglio, while Bergoglio joins in facing and praying to the gods of the north, south, east, and west. The pagan ritual is performed in a accordance with the Vatican II Anti-council's Heresy of Oecumenism ("we all worship the same gods"; "all religions are true") and anti-Roman "inculturation" to pagan rituals.. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Service.]
Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's spokesman blasphemously, sacrilegiously, and idolatrously called the pagan ritual equivalent to Catholic Sacramentals, like the Most Holy Rosary or Holy Water, so far has the Newchurch of the New Order turned its back on the Catholic Faith and adopted pagan rites, doctrines, and morals in violation of the First Commandment of God. Bergoglio is the modern version of the High Priest Aaron, who led the Jewish people in the pagan worship of the Golden Calf while Moses was on the mountain in the presence of God, receiving the Ten Commandments.
The work of a traditional Catholic exorcist, Fr. Gabriel Amorth, will be depicted in a new film. Amorth over his career performed some 100,000 exorcisms and wrote several books on the subject of exorcism. Austalian actor Russell Crowe, who won the Academy Award for Best Actor for 2000's Gladiator, playing a staunch conservative general, who stood against the libertine Roman emperor Commodus, will play Fr. Amorth. Filming will begin in August 2022, and the film is expected to be released in September 2023.
Although the film will be called "The Pope's Exorcist," Amorth was a traditional Catholic. Ordained in 1951, he rejected all the changes made by Newchurch in the traditional Latin Rite of Exorcism and refused to use the corrupted Novus Ordo Rituale. He refused to perform exorcisms in vulgar tongues and maintained that if they were not performed in Latin with the traditional Rituale Romanum, the exorcisms were "ineffective." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
The traditional Latin rite of exorcizing those possessed by the Devil consists of 18 pages of Latin in the Rituale Romanum. The rite includes the recitation of Psalms 53, 67, 34, 30, 21, 3, 10, and 12; pericopes from the Gospels of Sts. John, Mark, and Luke; five Orations; three lengthy Exorcisms; and the Athanasian Creed, which, after listing 39 paragraphs of detailed dogmata of the Church, concludes with the chilling words: "Haec est fides catholica, quam nisi quisque fideliter firmiterque crediderit, salvus esse non poterit" [This is the Catholic faith, which, unless one shall faithfully and firmly believe, he cannot be saved].
Traditional Catholics, in 2000 Fr. Amorth revealed: "I speak with the Devil every day. I talk to him in Latin. He answers in (vulgar) Italian." With this observation Amorth indicated the power of the Latin sacred language of the true Church, whereas the Devil is defeated in his use of vulgar tongue. Amorth remained a traditional Catholic thorn in the side of the Newpopes of the Newchurch right up to his death in 2016 at age 91. He revealed that the Devil was particularly tempting in our time the leaders of the Newchurch of the New Order.
As if the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) "indult" group isn't in enough trouble because it has had to limit its activities with the Half New Order "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962 after Francis-Bergoglio's decrees "Traditionis custodes" (July 16, 2021) and "Desiderio desideravi" (June 29, 2022), now one of its best-known presbyters in the United States, Fr. James Jackson, has been arrested for apparently escaping from custody before his trial on U.S. federal sex-crimes charges. Kansas State charges are also pending.
Jackson was pastor of St. Mary's Church in Providence, Rhode Island, for the FSSP. Caught by the Rhode Island Computer Crimes Task Force, Jackson was arrested on October 30, 2021, and then charged on November 15, 2022, on several counts of child pornography. He was charged with maintaining on a computer server in the FSSP rectory office "large amounts of child sex-abuse material." He faces two counts, each carrying a term of 20 years in federal prison, with a minimum mandatory term of five years.
Jackson had been released to the custody of a relative in Kansas before trial, but apparently Jackson escaped. Federal authorities apprehended him and transported him back to Rhode Island, where he now awaits in prison his September 2022 trial. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
Traditional Catholics, the Fraternity of St. Peter was the first "indult" group allowed by the Newvatican to simulate the Half New Order New Latin Mess of 1962 as an arm of the Newchurch of the New Order, to which it swore its allegiance. Being so deeply associated with the apostate Newchurch, it is not surprising that the FSSP has been involved in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. The gross immoralities and cover-ups of the crime wave that has swept through Newchurch have involved, and continue to involve without ceasing, presbyters, Newbishops, Newcardinals, and even three Newpopes.
The apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio is continuing his pogrom against the Half New Order "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962. His targets during the week of July 18, 2022, are to be sites in Chicago, Illinois, and Savannah, Georgia, in the United States: and sites in France. In addition, the Provincial Headquarters of the Institute of Christ the King (ICR) near Chicago, which is second among the "indult" groups only to the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), which was the first to sell out to the New Order sect in 1988, is to be shut down as of July 31, 2022, its last day of operations.
The Institute claimed to have nineteen sites in the United States and five in Italy. Like the FSSP, the ICR is not Traditional Catholic, but is an arm of Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order and simulates the Half New Order "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962. The fate of the remaining sites looks bleak under the terms of Bergoglio's decrees "Traditionis custodes" (July 16, 2021) and "Desiderio desideravi" (June 29, 2022). Following Bergoglio's modus operandi, they will likely be dismantled on an accelerated schedule.
Meanwhile, Newarchbishop Arthur Roche, Prefect of the Dicastery of Divine Worship [Sic], has issued an edict straight from Newrome that all "Extraordinary" [Sic] New Latin Messes in the Newdiocese of Savannah, Georgia, are to be shut down by May 2023. The New Latin Mess currently being simulated at the Newcathedral there is to be shut down by the end of July 2022.
The United States is certainly not the only target of Francis-Bergoglio. France has large pockets of pseudo-traditionalism, which until now have been loyal to the apostate Newpope, whom they dare to call the (Un)holy Father. But the clouds are darkening in the French Newdiocese of Frejus-Toulon. Bergoglio has shut down a pseudo-Benedictine priory there that had been using the New Latin Mess. The monastery, which wisely have legal possession of the property, has decided to break with Bergoglio and go independent from him and his Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Is there controversy as to whence the Rosary originated? What about the role of St. Dominic in its dissemination?
THE TRADITIO FATHERS REPLY
Methods of counting prayers began early in the Church and was known even before the Christian Era. The Rosary originated not as a separate, private prayer, but as a temporary substitute for the 150 Psalms of the Divine Office, when traveling monks did not have copies of the Officium Divinum (Divine Office), or Breviarium (Breviary), to take with them.
St. Dominic of Osma was one who encouraged the dissemination of the devotion in the 13th century. St. Francis of Assisi encouraged the laity to say the Rosary -- but in Latin, not in the vulgar tongues. The incomparable beauty and variety of the Divine Office, certainly when chanted, but even when recited, is the best expression of the Church's prayer.
Nowadays increasing numbers of traditional Catholics are returning to praying instead of the Rosary, part or all of the Divine Office itself, the sanctification of the seven hours of the day as the Church's Official Prayer, of which Holy Mass is a part (usually) after the Hour of Terce (Third Hour of the Day). Alternatively, those who are not praying the Divine Office may be praying a shorter version of it (one of many historically), known as Officium Parvum Beatae Mariae Virginis (Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary).

On July 13, 2022, Francis-Bergoglio told Newchurchers that they should not abstain from fleshmeat on Friday to save their souls by repentance, yet they should do so to "curb global warming and to save the planet." Is Bergoglio now getting tired of playing Newpope and hankering instead to become Secretary-General of the United Nations? In his address Bergoglio also urged not a commitment to Our Lord Jesus Christ, but to "an integral ecology" -- whatever that is supposed to mean.
Actually, in 1966, one year after the close of the Vatican II Anti-council, the Newchurch of the New Order rejected the Friday abstinence almost wholesale. The Catholic Church, on the other hand, has recognized the practice of abstaining from fleshmeat on Fridays in a document from the end of the first century A.D., the "Didache of the Apostles." The Friday abstinence was the universal custom from the very beginning, as Friday was dedicated to the memory of the Passion of Our Lord, as a day on which we should make a special effort to practice penance. It is in recognition of the fact that Christ suffered and died, and gave up his human flesh and life for our sins on a Friday that Catholics do not eat fleshmeat on Fridays. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Breitbart.]
Traditional Catholics, by our abstinence from fleshmeat on Friday, we recall, and participate in some small way, in the great sacrifice of Our Lord for us on that Good Friday. Moreover, by abstaining from fleshmeat, we give up what is, on the whole, the most pleasant, as well as the most nourishing food, and so make satisfaction for the temporal punishment due to sin even when its guilt has been forgiven. The law of Friday abstinence binds Catholics under pain of Mortal Sin (Second Precept of the Church).
Newbishop Georg Batzing, President of the German Bishops' Conference, announced on July 11, 2022, that Benedict-Ratzinger had died. But in fact he didn't. It turned out that notorious Italian Twitter hoaxer Tommasso De Benedetti had gotten the goat of Newvatican by spoofing the Newbishop's account.
Ratzinger was still alive at age 95. He calls himself a [New]pope Emeritus, a title never used in the true Catholic Church. Ratzinger is the fourth of five apostate Newpopes from the Catholic Faith who led the Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church, as it does not exhibit the four marks of the Catholic Church: one, holy, catholic, apostolic, as defined in the Nicene Creed of 325, the dogma adopted by the First Oecumenical Council of Nicaea. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
Traditional Catholics, Benedict-Ratzinger abdicated from the Newpapacy on February 11, 2013, in order to avoid celebrating the Novus Ordo Holy Week and Easter rites, claiming "vires meas ingravescente aetate non iam aptas esse” (my strength is no longer adequate, given my advancing age). Ratzinger was only 85 at the time. Ten years later Ratzinger remains alive. You can be sure that when his time comes, his Requiem will not be conducted in the Half New Order New Latin Mess of 1962, which he refused to simulate even once in the almost eight years of his Newpapacy.
The trial ongoing in a Newvatican court heard on July 7, 2022, testimony under oath from an official of Francis-Bergoglio's own Secretariat of State, Fabrizio Tirabassi, that the Newpope himself had personally authorized payoff money in the infamous London Real-estate fraud that eventually lost almost half a billion U.S. dollars from Peter's Pence, a fund under the direct control of Bergoglio, to which Newchurchers donate, supposedly for the most needy charitable purposes.
Unless Bergoglio himself is to be considered a "mist needy" case, the fraud stinks to High Heaven as outright embezzlement of charitable funds by laundering the money through the Newpope's own "Vatican Bank." Involved in the money laundering, according to Tirabassi, there were "70-80 accounts” at the Bank, faked for this purpose at Bergoglio's own bank, involving the so-called Institute for the Works of Religion and the Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See. Even Newcardinal Angelo Becciu, second in command at Bergoglio's Secretariat of State, is implicated in the embezzlement, charged with diverting charitable funds to his own Newdiocese.in Sicily. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
Traditional Catholics, because of the embezzlement, to which Francis-Bergoglio's name has been associated, donations to his scam Peter's Pence fund declined by 15 per cent over the last year. According to the figures on the 2021 Peter‘s Pence balance sheet, Bergoglio's scam "charity" fund actually spent only 18 per cent of its income on charity; the rest went to administration. The general standard is that only 15 per cent of a charity's income should be spent on administration. Anything more than 25 per cent leads to criminal investigation. Bergoglio is spending 82 per cent -- over five times that amount -- on administration! In essence, Bergoglio is robbing the poor box blind.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I understand well that the Newchurch of the New Order has replaced the ordination of priests under the Sacrament of Holy Orders with an invalid, Protestantized non-sacramental rite of "installation" of "presbyters" (ministers). Some oblivious Newchurchers, nevertheless, point to supposed "exorcisms" by Newchurch presbyters, who have claimed to have freed people from demonic possession. How should traditional Catholics reply to such notions?
THE TRADITIO FATHERS REPLY.
Who is to say that these "exorcisms" are in fact "successful"? Success for Christ or successful for Satan? They show the signs rather of being of Satan rather than God. Apparitions, miracles, visions, exorcisms, and the like -- none of such things can ever be accepted a face value, but must always be tested against the true Faith, and we know that the Newchurch and its ministers are most certainly not Catholic, but an apostate Protestant-Masonic-Pagan sect. Why? Because it is an article of the Catholic Faith that Satan does operate in this world, and we must be very careful not to fall for his malice and snares, including his perversion of fake sacraments and sacramentals in false sects like Newchurch.
Among many other passages in Scripture, St. Paul warns in his Second Letter to the Corinthians (11:13-14/DRV) how Satan can deceive us by appearing to be an "angel of light" by faking apparitions, miracles, visions, exorcisms, and the like:
For such false apostles are deceitful workmen, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ. And no wonder: for Satan himself transformeth himself into an angel of light."
In any case, in 1972, with its decree "Ad pascendum," Newchurch did away with the Order of Exorcist in its Protestant-Masonic-Pagan sect, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church, as it rejects Catholic Scripture and Tradition, instead fabricating new doctrines and rejecting Catholic and Apostolic doctrine. The Newchurch sect clearly fails in not one, but all, of the four marks of the true Church: unam, sanctam, catholicam, et apostolicam (one, holy, catholic, and apostolic), doctrinal words from the Nicene-Constantinopolitan Creed said by the priest or chanted by the schola at every Sunday Mass.
Every Catholic in these times should be praying daily the Indulgenced Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel, available in its original Latin (with an English version) at the TRADITIO Network's Confraternity of St. Michael department.
Francis-Bergoglio took yet another step toward paganism when he formally joined the Leftist U.N.'s Paris Climate Control Agreement, which incorporates a political agenda to push abortion, contraception, and sterilization for effecting population control. Bergoglio had his Instrument of Accession to the Agreement formally delivered to the Secretary-General of the United Nations on July 8, 2022.
Bergoglio justified his latest step in softening his position against abortion under the Marxist-sounding rubric of "solidarity with the poor" and "control of the earth's resources." In fact, the Agreement signed by Bergoglio is stacked against the poor, who are intimidated under its provisions to procure abortions, sterilizations, and to contraceptives in order to receive international funding from such agencies as the United National Population Fund. The Agreement also sets a goal of decriminalizing abortion. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]
Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio is already being condemned for his "steady reversal" from Catholic doctrine to an acceptance of abortion, sterilization, and contraception to promote Leftist/Marxist "climate control" politics. In fact, from the time that he was promoted to the Newpapacy in 2013 by a Leftist cabal of Newcardinals, Bergoglio has favored the Agreement, and now he has formally imposed it on his Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church.
The latest charade of the "New Mess" took place on July 8, 2022, in the Church of St. Michael in the Newdiocese of Jerez, Spain. Newchurch's phony "blessed sacrament" was supposedly present at the time that the horse was freely defecating in the historic church. Nor do we in any way intend to disparage the horses. Dumb animals these days have a better sense of the sacred than do the apostate Newchurch leaders.
But, don't worry, the Newdiocese is going to make up for this sacrilege with another, by putting on an idolatrous "eucharistic adoration" of reparation with the fake Novus Ordo cookie. In 1969, Newchurch lost the Most Holy Eucharist, when it introduced the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Mess. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by InfoCatolica.]
Traditional Catholics, one year earlier, in 1968, Newchurch had already rejected the Catholic priesthood when it stopped ordaining priests and adopted a Protestantized New Ordinal in place of the Sacrament of Holy Orders. From that point Newchurch has not ordained priests (or consecrated bishops), but merely "installs" presbyters and Newbishops just like the Protestants. Newchurch's presbyters and Newbishops are no more valid than your local Protestant minister. At least the Protestant ministers tend to be moral men, whereas most Newchurch presbyters and Newbishops are besotted in the sodomy and rape of children, or the active support of these Most Moral of Sins.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Yesterday I sinned. I visited a local Newchurch and felt so dirty afterward that I immediately went to a Traditional Catholic priest to wash myself of my sin. However, while I was in the Newchurch, I noticed in the pew a volume entitled the New American Bible. I am familiar with the traditional Douay-Rheims Catholic Bible, but is this :"New American Bible" that Newchurch uses a even Catholic translation?
THE TRADITIO FATHERS REPLY
The so-called "New American Bible" is the corrupted version that Newchurch introduced in 1970 after the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) and further "revised" in 1986, 1991, and 2011 Apparently, this version is so bad that it had to be "revised" three times in forty years. The "New American Bible" does not even pretend to be an exact, faithful rendering of Scripture, but is more of a paraphrase used by Newchurch to introduce new doctrines under the guise of a "translation." This fraudulent technique began in the 1950s to introduce all things anti-Catholic under the deceptive label of "Catholic."
The latest edition of the "New American Bible" adopts today's latest silly craze, "gender-neutral language," which is merely a sop to transsexuals by mixing up the pronouns "he," "she," "it," and "they" in a concocted non-binary universe. The "New American Bible" also dumps the traditional names of people and places that go back to the authoritative Greek Septuagint version of the Old Testament and the Catholic Church's official Bible, St. Jerome's Latin Vulgate, and the traditional Catholic English Douay-Rheims Version, but instead adopts the Protestants' names.
As a general rule, nothing that has the word "new" prefixed in front of it and associated with Newchurch is not Catholic: the New "Mass" (which is not even a Mass, but a Protestant-Jewish worship service), the New Bible, the New Catechism, the New Canon Law, and so many other frauds of Newchurch. Generally, anything published after 1960 and associated with Newchurch is corrupted. Even from the 1950s, corruptions were being introduced: into the Mass, the Divine Office, the Sacraments, the Catechism, etc. Thus, it is also incumbent upon true Catholics to stay away from "reprints" of older books, which are often used to introduce Newchurch material without even telling the reading in a preface or footnotes that the original version has been radically changed. Better to buy the original book from a used-book source.

Further proof that the Newchurch of the New Order is composed of criminal Newclergy who have no repentance for their sex crimes against children or their public support of such crimes. Given that the exposure of these crimes hit Newchurch like an atomic bomb in January 2002, it is scandalous that all Newpopes JPII-Woytla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio have done in twenty years is to issue toothless press releases, while the problems continue unabated, and children continue to be raped, sodomized, and otherwise sexually assaulted by criminal Newchurch clergy.
On July 8, 2022, after ten years of his regime, Bergoglio finally got around to requesting an annual report on his Newclergy's paedophile crimes. The report, if it ever comes out, will be grossly incomplete because, as Bergoglio admitted, significant numbers of his Newbishops are refusing to provide the required data. So much for Bergoglio being the purported "supreme pontiff." The Newchurch criminals are running the show in his Newchurch. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
Traditional Catholics, the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops have made public the fact that one out of every five Newbishops has refused to provide the annual data mandated by its own 2002 Charter for the Protection of Children and Young People. Among these Newbishops is Bergoglio's Leftist bosom buddy Blase Cupich, of Chicago, Illinois. Is Francis-Bergoglio serious about the rampant crimes continuing to be perpetrated against children by his Newbishops and presbyters? Of course not. For him, it is merely a game of cover-up played by his billion-dollar propaganda machine.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
You described another abomination in St. Peter's Basilica, and I was horrified, again. Francis-Bergoglio erected in front of the high altar and blessed the idol of a nude pagan fertility goddess, Pachamama. Then I remembered hearing a Gospel about Peter's acknowledging Christ as the Son of God, and in response Christ instituted the Church and gave Peter the authority to forgive or retain sin. Doesn't this mean that anything a pope says or does is, by definition, correct? That even if we laypeople perceive a pagan goddess venerated at Mass as wrong, because a pope does it, it is not wrong?
THE TRADITIO FATHERS REPLY.
Your conclusion is dead wrong. It is not the laypeople who view idolatry as wrong; it is God Himself. "I am the Lord thy God; thou shalt not have strange gods in My sight" (Deuteronomy 5:5-7). Idolatry is a very grave sin against God Himself, against His First Commandment. Moreover, don't forget that just a few verses after the passage you quoted, Peter commits the error of questioning the Resurrection, whence Christ condemns Peter and says to him: "Go behind me, Satan; thou art a scandal unto me" (Matthew16:23/DRV).
The notion that "anything a pope says or does is, by definition, correct, because if a pope does it, it is not wrong" is not Catholic doctrine. It is in fact heresy and contrary to the very words of Christ in Scripture. If a pope commits murder in the name of the Church, does that make a pope any less a murderer? Of course not.
It shocking how many people today who consider themselves Catholic have no rea; understanding of the dogma on the papacy. The official dogma onthe papal office was defined by the First Vatican Council in its First Dogmatic Constitution on the Church of Christ (Pastor Aeternus) of July 18, 1870:
Neque enim Petri successoribus Spiritus sanctus promissus est, ut eo revelante novam doctrinam patefacerent, sed ut eo assistente traditam per apostolos revelationem seu fidei depositum sancte custodirent et fideliter exponerent.
[For the Holy Ghost was promised to the successors of Peter not so that they might, by His revelation, make known some new doctrine, but that, by His assistance, they might religiously guard and faithfully expound the revelation or Deposit of Faith transmitted by the Apostles.]
Bergoglio and at least three of his predecessors are heretics because they attempted to impose "new doctrine," New Messes and "sacraments" that are not Catholic, as well as other doctrinal, liturgical, and moral abominations. By doing these things, such purported "popes" ipso factor excommunicated themselves from the Catholic Church (if they were ever Catholic), like the heretic popes Honorius and Liberius, among others.
The Newarchdiocese of Santa Fe, New Mexico thought that it had gotten rid of numerous claims of children raped, sodomized, and otherwise sexually assaulted by Newchurch presbyters in the 1990s. But Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust has gotten only worse over the ensuing years, all over the United States and indeed around the world. 375 new criminal claims have been entered by children, which broke the bank.
Santa Fe -- ironically named, because Newchurch lost the Holy Faith in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council -- was forced into bankruptcy on November 20, 2018. Because the Newarchdiocese was bereft of funds, the historic 1887 Cathedral of St. Francis of Assisi is in danger of being sold off to commercial interests, perhaps to be made into a beer hall or condominia. The Newarchdiocese has already auctioned off other property to pay for its crimes.
The corrupt Newarchdiocese doesn't have enough money to pay off the children's claims, so Newarchbishop John Wester announced on June 25, 2022, that that he is going to rob his Newparishes for additional money. Wester is in hock to the child victims to the tune of 125,500,000 USD. Wester already robbed his Newparishes in 2021; this will be additional thievery. Until the crimes are fully paid for, the Newarchdiocese remains under the control of the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, as it has been for the last four years. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Santa Fe New Mexican.]
Traditioinal Catholics, this is just the tip of the iceberg for Newchurch's paedoophile crimes perpetrated by its Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters. 26 other Newdioceses in the United States and three religious orders have been forced into bankruptcy because of Newchurch's rampant paedophile crimes. And more are still being committed at an ever-increasing rate. 21 Newdioceses still remain in bankruptcy.
On July 5, 2022, Francis-Bergoglio's spokesman for Hong Kong, Newmonsignor Javier Herrera-Corona, publicly warned that Newchurch would face further persecutions as a result of growing hostility from the Chinese Communist Party and its Dictator Xi Jinping. Already the Communists have arrested the revered Newcardinal Joseph Zen -- who, by the way, is a fierce critic of Newpope Bergoglio -- and several other Newchurch leaders, have intimidated Newchurch members, and have imposed legal restrictions upon them. "Change is coming, and you'd better be prepared," warned Herrera-Corona.
For four years now, since October 2018, Bergoglio has sold out to the Communists the de facto power to appoint Newchurch bishops, whom Bergoglio merely rubber stamps. Since Communism is officially atheist, one may readily conclude the these Newbishops are at the least Communists. In spite of this fact, Bergoglio has announced on the same date, July 5, 2022, that he will renew his "secret" sellout deal with Dictator Xi for another two years in October 2022, including the provision that allows the Communist Dictator to appoint Bergoglio's Newbishops for Red China. Six Newbishops have already been so appointed, and Bergoglio has "regularized" seven other members of the Chinese Communist Party's Patriotic Catholic [Sic] Association as his Newbishops.
The reason for Bergoglio's sellout to the Communists is simple. Not only is Bergoglio a fellow Marxist -- as he admits in his own book -- but Xi has bought Bergoglio off with millions of dollars; he is a kept man. Bergoglio's Newvatican is almost bankrupt because of paedophile sex crimes and embezzlement, according to its Chief Auditor, so Bergoglio is selling out his own people to bail himself out. Bergoglio is thus accepting millions of dirty dollars from Xi to sell out his Newchurch in the rabidly Communist country. Dictator Xi has bought from Bergoglio the power to appoint some forty more Newbishops. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Reporter.]
Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio actually defended his sellout of his Newchurch in Hong Kong and continental China to the Chinese Communist Party. Bergoglio is incorrigibly immoral, as the apostate Newpope, bereft of Holy Orders, the true Mass, and the Sacraments, would naturally be. How many lives of his own Newbishops, presbyters, and people in Red China have been killed because of Bergoglio's collusion with the atheistic Communists, only God knows. But Bergoglio will go to his grave with their souls standing up against him at the time of his Judgment.
After the disappointment in Francis-Bergoglio's December 8, 2021, changes to Newcanon Law, which, instead of attempting to deal with rampant sex crimes against children by Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters, actually gave more power to the perpetrators, Newchurch tried to do a quick fix on June 27, 2022, but these latest regulations don't even have the force of Newcanon Law.
In any case, it turns out that the new "protections" for children raped and sodomized by Newclergy amounts to changing the reference numbers for the Newcanons and changing the names of the "Congregations" responsible to "Dicasteries." That isn't even rearranging the deck chairs on the sinking Newchurch of the New Order and certainly does nothing to stop rampant sex crimes against children presided over by Bergoglio and his predecessors. The few changes in wording actually makes the prosecution of Newchurch's criminal clergy more difficult rather than less difficult. The complaints of children who do not wish to be identified to their abusers are now more easily disregarded, and the criminal Newclergy perpetrators must be represented by a canon lawyer. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic Standard.]
Traditional Catholics, it is clear that the corruption of Newchurch is so endemic that it is irremediable without the apostate Newchurch itself being deestroyed. The Three Paedophile Newpopes -- the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla, the "Nazi" Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger, and the "Marxist" Newpope Francis-Bergoglio -- obviously care not one iota for children whose lives have been ruined by Newclergy. About one-third of the children are so affected that they commit suicide. The Newpopes simply play word games and won't even speak to the child victims. This is Newchurch's vaunted "charity." These Newpopes are headed for the eternal punishment quite clearly described by Our Lord: "But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea" (Matthew 18:6/DRV). The "depths of the sea" here is a metaphor for the pit of Hell.
Francis-Bergoglio's next perversion may be the Newpapal Nude Mess. He has already installed an idol of the nude pagan fertility goddess Pachamama in front of St. Peter's altar and formally blessed her. He might as well worship the golden calf, because of which the people of Israel were severely punished by God. To add insult to injury, Bergoglio on July 3, 2022, formally rejected Roman Catholicism and apostatized to a sect of pagan African natives. He simulated -- all invalidly and blasphemously, of course -- an African Mess smacking of paganism to equate with the pagan Pachamama, desecrating yet again the high altar of St. Peter's Basilica, which resides above the tomb of the Apostle.
The rite -- which was in no way a "Mass" -- was entirely pagan, with 2,000 African natives possessed by raucous shouting, vulgar clapping, and lewd dancing to the beat of the pagan tom-tom.. It was the Vatican II Anti-council of 1962-1965 that opened the door to such sacrilege, promoting the anti-Catholic notion of "inculturation. Nothing of this latest blasphemy was Catholic. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic World Report.]
Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio, while viciously suppressing the Half New Order "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962, has indicated that more of these pagan Messes will "serve as an example and model for other cultures.” Francis-Bergoglio has made the future of Newchurch crystal clear and has appointed a majority of Newcardinals to carry elect successor Newpopes to carry it on for Newchurch. No true Catholic can have anything do with such blasphemy, idolatry, and sacrilege. One would have to be deaf, dumb, and blind to fancy that there is anything Catholic about Newchurch of the New Order.
The ante has been raised against presbyters and Newbishops participating in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, as the United States' Federal Bureau of Investigation announced on July 1, 2022, that it is investigating whether to prosecute these criminals under the federal Mann Act, which bars anyone from crossing state lines for illicit sex. The criminals would then be liable not only under state criminal law, but under federal criminal law as well.
The FBI is now investigating sex crimes against children by Newchurch's Newbishops and presbyters, sometimes going back decades, because often the Newchurch clergy crosses state lines to commit their crimes. The new procedure also allows for federal, as well as state, lawsuits by the child victims against criminal Newchurch clergy. In addition, the Mann Act has no statute of limitations, so the perpetrators can never escape justice, no matter how far in the past the crimes were committed. One notorious case involves a former Newchurch "altar boy," who was abused in the 1970s, when a perverted presbyter took him across state lines to sodomize him. Among those implicated are the last four Newarchbishops of New Orleans, Louisiana, who colluded with the presbyter. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
Traditional Catholics, the Newarchdiocese of New Orleans went into bankruptcy in 2020 because of rampant sex crimes committed against children by its Newclergy. Some 400 child victims were barred from justice by the statute of limitations of the State of Louisiana. However, with the application of the Mann Act, these child victims may now sue in U.S. federal court. Moreover, a federal U.S. Attorney stated that Newchurch itself in the United States, as in the organization of the U.S. Conference of U.S. Catholic [Sic] Bishops, "could be put on trial." It couldn't happen to a more deserving group of criminals.
By his June 29, 2022, Apostolic Letter, "Desiderio Desideravi," Bergoglio is indeed appearing to prepare his Newchurch for his next attack against the pseudo-traditionalists who foolishly obey him and against their Half New Order "Extraordinary" New Latin Mass of 1962, which is certainly not the Traditional Latin Mass of All Ages. The cat is already out of the bag: he will replace the Half New Order 1962 New Latin Mess with the full-blown Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New Mess" of 1969.
One may notice that this Newpope, unlike the others, always feels a need to justify his errors before he commits them. For example, whenever he wants to erase a pseudo-traditionalist religious order, he sends in his Inquisitors, even though they have reached their conclusions before they arrive to inquisition or to visitate, or whatever.
In his latest Apostolic Letter, Bergoglio rambles on for over sixty paragraphs, rehearsing the same tired old bromides of the heretic and failed New Order philosophes of the 1960s. What he needs is a reality check. The corruptions following the Vatican II Anti-Council (1962-1965) brought only the rotten fruit of falling vocations (if one can be said to have a vocation to a heretic sect like Newchurch), falling Mess attendance, falling enrollment in Newchurch schools, falling recourse to the worthless invalidated sacraments of Newchurch.
The proof is in, and Bergoglio cannot escape the effects of the Newchurch corruptions. He will be remembered as the great disruptor -- if he will be remembered at all.
It seems that Francis-Bergoglio has never met a doctrine that he didn't want to change. On July 1, 2022, it was the Just War Principle formulated by the Church's greatest theologian, the Great Father and Doctor of the Church, St. Augustine of Hippo, confirmed and approved by the Church's Universal Doctor, St. Thomas Aquinas. St. Augustine's principle, approved by the Church since the fourth century, is now under "modernization" by the apostate Newpope. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
It would be useful to review the Traditional Catholic teaching on the question of a just war. Whatever Bergoglio's Marxist/Modernist notion may be, the Catholic Church teaches that the waging of war is not in itself unjust. St. Augustine, Father and Doctor of the Church, taught that a just war is "not only excusable but also commendable" because it is undertaken "in the defense of [one's] country against enemies that would invade it." In such a war "every man fights not for the defense of himself out of a private affection for himself, but out of Christian charity for the safeguard and preservation of all the others." However, three conditions must classically be met for a war to be just (St. Thomas Aquinas, "Summa Theologica," IIa IIae, Q. 40, Art. 1):
In accordance with prudence (practical wisdom), four circumstances must also pertain:
Only a defensive war can be justified. However, a nation that takes the initial step to war when it is certain that an enemy is about to attack immediately, can be said to be waging a defensive war. In the waging of war, unjust means must be avoided. Means may be unjust because they are forbidden by the natural law (as would be the case of a direct attack on the civilian population), or by the positive law, such as the use of poisoned gas. However, if one belligerent violates a statute of positive law, the other is free to do the same.
As is evident, it is not possible for both sides to be objectively justified in a war. But it is possible for the citizens of both nations to be in good faith and to be convinced that their cause is just. The individual citizen must take as his norm the general principle that he is obliged to obey his own rules unless he is sure that what they commend is unjust. Hence, he must go to war if commanded, unless he has the sincere conviction in his conscience that the war is unjust.
Traditional Catholics, one must remember that the State has its proper realm of activity. "The Almighty," said Pope Leo XIII, "has appointed the charge of the human race between two powers, the ecclesiastical and the civil, the one being set over divine, the other over human things. Each in its kind is supreme.... Whatever is to be ranged under the civil and political order is rightly subject to the civil authority. Jesus Christ has Himself given command that what is Caesar's is to be rendered to Caesar and that which belongs to God is to be rendered to God." Inhabitants owe undivided allegiance in civil or political matters to the government of the country in which they live. Their allegiance to the Church is confined to purely to spiritual matters. The Catholic religion teaches that the State has divine authority, as well as the Church.
"Perversion" seems to be the word that best describes the Newchurch of the New Order and its Newpope. Perverted doctrine, perverted liturgy, perverted morality. Francis-Bergoglio's latest foray into the LaLa Land of Marxist/Modernist doctrine was his statement on Pentecost Sunday 2022. See whether you can make any logical sense of this statement of his, which is so convoluted as to rival statements of the current U.S. President, who is widely believed to have senile dementia:
The Holy Ghost is the author of division, of ruckus, of disorder.... He divides with the variety of charisms, but it is a false division, because true division is part of harmony. He creates division with charisms, and he creates harmony with all this division. This is the richness of the Church.”
So, disorder is harmony; harmony is disorder. One of the basic principles of Aristotelian logic is: X does not equal Not-X. What Bergoglio is enunciating here is not Christian, is not even Western. It is atheistic Marxist philosophy that he admits inspires him, one of whose foundational principles is the infusion of disruption into systems so that they may be taken over by a dictator or, in the religious sphere, the Father of Lies.
In fact, Bergoglio's Newchurch is divided in its nature, and Bergoglio, himself the author of that division, is experiencing that division firsthand. Just a few recent examples: his beloved Russian Orthodox breaking off contact with him, his own Syro-Malabar rite denouncing him for interference in its ancient liturgy, the German Newchurch on the verge of going into schism from him, his own pseudo-traditionalists pushing back against him. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio drools to be that dictator by perpetrating the very disruption that he describes. This is the purpose of his Vatican III Anti-council of 2023, which he has craftily reconfigured as a "Great Synod," so that he can exert one-man control from his tower in Newvatican. If you had any doubt that the Newchurch of the New Order is not the Catholic Church, by the end of 2023 there will be not one iota of doubt remaining.
As if to confirm the reports from around the world that even Newchurchers formerly supporting him are denouncing him as a "fake pope," Francis-Bergoglio spit in the face of his Newarchbishop of San Francisco, the ill-starred Salvatore Cordileone, who had barred the heretic Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, the Dishonorable N.E. Pelosi, who is a rabid proponent of a "woman's God-given right to an abortion" and the obligation of taxpayers to pay for these murders of innocent life. Bergoglio had the invalid New Order cookie glad-handed to the heretic Pelosi as a "VIP." Bergoglio also blessed Pelosi personally. Of course, Bergoglio knew all about this before he had the fake Novus Ordo "kommunion" cookie handed not only to Pelosi. He was making a very public stand in favor of Newchurch's changing policy on abortion. which is moving toward its eventual acceptance under Bergoglio.
Not only did Bergoglio hand the fake cookie to Pelosi, but also to her husband, Paul Pelosi, who is currently on the loose under indictment for smashing on May 28, 2022, both his own and an injured victim's car into smithereens while Pelosi was so drunk that he couldn't pass a drunk test over two hours after the crime. His Speaker-wife is suspected of using her influence on the District Attorney to waive charges against her drunkard spouse, but the press wouldn't let the matter drop and forced the D.A. to enforce the law and also to release all documents pertaining to the case. (To be fair, the drunken Cordileone committed virtually the same crime with his own mother and a presbyter in the car. His blood alcohol was more than double the limit, but he refused calls for him to reject installation as Newarchbishop of San Francisco.) [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Daily Mail.]
Traditional Catholics, on June 24, 2022, the U.S. Supreme Court rescinded the 1972 Roe vs. Wade decision, which had previously allowed women all over the United States to murder their babies in the womb, even up to the moment of birth itself, if not afterward. At a press conference held after the decision was announced, N.E. Pelosi, who describes herself as a "devout Catholic" in spite of her open defiance of God's Natural Law and her interdiction by her own Newarchbishop, struggled to conceal her tears of anger when she learned that the open season on murder of babies in the United States had been curtailed. This is the kind of immoral ilk with whom the apostate Newpope attaches himself --- certainly not to the innocent murdered babies, any more than to the children sexually assaulted by his Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters, whose crimes Bergoglio has supported in case after case.
Those pseudo-traditional Newchurchers who were praying that Francis-Bergoglio's July 16, 2021, decree "Traditionis custodes," virtually suppressing the "Extraordinary" New Latin Mass of 1962, was the final blow have now been battered into senselessness by his June 29, 2022, sequel, "Desiderio Desideravi." Even the title of this Apostolic Letter shows the impetus with which Bergoglio, his knee now healing, intends to continue battering the clueless pseudo-traditionalists, who persist in recognizing his apostate regime as "Catholic." Bergoglio further dissed the pseudo-traditionalists by issuing the fifteen-page Apostolic Letter in no less than five vulgar tongues, but without a Latin version.
The title is sacrilegiously ripped from Our Lord's words (Luke 22:15) before the Last Supper, which Bergoglio blasphemously applies to the fake (Invalid) Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Novus Ordo "kommunion" of cookies and Kool-Aid. Bergoglio couldn't wait even a year to rub salt into the pseudo-traditionalist Newchurchers' wounds after "Traditionis custodes."
In his Apostolic Letter Bergoglio again excoriated the Newchurch pseudo-traditionalists, who crazily have wed themselves not to the Traditional Latin Mass, but to the New Latin Mess of 1962, which is a product of the Protestant-Jewish Liturgical Revolution that began in 1951 and culminated the fake (invalid) New Mess of 1962. He has doubled down on his denunciation of the pseudo-traditionalists again, calling them "ideologues," one of his favorite denunciations of them, along with his 45 other documented condemnatory phrases, like "shit-eaters" (coprophiliacs).
In this latest Apostolic Letter, Bergoglio lauds the Vatican II Anti-council's fake New Mess to the hilt, while at the same time condemning the New Latin Mess, which itself is a travesty on the Traditional Latin Mass as it existed in 1950. Bergoglio is expunging -- no doubt about it -- those who don't accept the Anti-council's heretical Mess, or even the Anti-council itself. The exaltation of the Anti-council's fake (invalid) New Mess of 1969 is his purpose in suppressing the New Latin Mess by his decree "Traditionis custodes" and confirming once and for all the fake "New Mess." Now we know. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio doth protest too much. His denunciations smack of a mania not before seen from a man who claims to be a pope, a contention that even many more Newchurchers are publicly rejecting. We have concluded that the Marxist/Modernist Bergoglio came face to face with his own death, when his July 2021 operation and its botched anaesthesia put the fear of God into him. He is now lashing out in what he thinks may his last days on this earth, not doing penance for his notorious apostasy from the Catholic Faith, but instead lashing out at the very thing that could save his depraved soul: the Traditional Latin Mass and the Traditional Latin Sacraments of the true Catholic Church, which continues to function outside the boundaries of his corrupt and apostate Newchurch of the New Order.
Many Traditional Catholics do not know the story of Sir Alec Guinness (1914-2000), known to younger generations as the Jedi sage of the momentous "Star Wars" saga, To older generations, he is known as a consummate actor in many films on varied subjects, including a film of the priest-detective Father Brown, based upon the books of Catholic author G.K. Chesterton. Sir Alec Guinness, once noted for his anti-clericalism and anti-Romanism, had been received into the Roman Catholic Church in 1956.
His conversion from Anglicanism indirectly occurred during filming in France of the priestly role he played in the Father Brown movie. He relates the circumstances in his autobiography "Blessings in Disguise" as follows:
By the time dusk fell, I was bored and, dressed in my priestly black, I climbed the gritty winding road to the village.... I hadn't gone far when I heard scampering footsteps and a piping voice calling, 'Mon père!' My hand was seized by a boy of seven or eight, who clutched it tightly, swung it and kept up a non-stop prattle.... Although I was a total stranger, he obviously took me for a priest and so to be trusted. Suddenly with a 'Bonsoir, mon père' and a hurried sideways sort of bow, he disappeared through a hole in the hedge.... Continuing my walk I reflected that a Church which could inspire such confidence in a child, making its priests, even when unknown, so easily approachable could not be as scheming and creeping as so often made out [in Britain]. I began to shake off my long-taught, long-absorbed, prejudices [against Roman Catholicism]."
How the great actor would have deplored the apostate Newchurch and its Newpopes, mired personally in paedophile crimes against children!
Guinness knew and loved the fullyTraditional Latin Mass. In fact, by the time he portrayed Obi-Wan Kenobi, Guinness had been Catholic for around 20 years and would frequently make retreats at Catholic monasteries, witnessing the prayer lives of monks, possibly helping his portrayal of Obi-Wan as a wise, religious hermit.
Traditional Catholics, it is ironic that Alec Guiness, a consummate master of the English language, wrote several letters against the "New Mess" travesty. He rejected the "New Mess," saying, "I don't think I can stand it any longer." In 1990, he had asked: "Why, why did we ever abandon a Latin Liturgy? It contained words weighted with 2,000 years of Christian theology, devotion, and daily usage.” Who are we to counter the wisdom of the sagacious Jedi Master?
