Newrome is buzzing with the report that two outgoing Newprelates have made an attempt to shut down a new revolutionary "governing council" for the "Synodal Way" in Germany. (The Synodal Way is Francis-Bergoglio's "Vatican III" to revolutionize Newchurch further.) Newcardinal Luis Ladaria Ferrer, Newprefect for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith, together with Newcardinal Marc Ouellet, Newprefect for Newbishops (currently under a cloud of sexual assault), and Newcardinal Pietro Parolin, Secretary of State for the Newvatican, have issued a statement against this German attempt.
However, the President of the German [New]bishops' Conference, Newbishop Georg Batzing, of Limburg, is defiant and refuses to back down. Soon, Bergoglio will replace the moderates(?) Ladaria Ferrer and Ouellet, whereas the radical Batzing is not going anywhere soon.
Just as pseudo-traditionalists in Newchurch do not get along with Neo-conservatives there, it is also the case that revolutionary Bergoglians (with the exception of Bergoglio himself) are not radical enough for the all-out Communist lunatics of Germany. We see division everywhere in Newchurch as it implodes. When any organization collapses, those responsible turn on each other. It is a sign of the failure of their organization, in this case, the apostate Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
In the Newchurch to which I used to belong before converting to Traditional Catholicism, the traditional bapistery area had been dismantled, and a simple holy-water font was placed inside the "worship space" around the Novus Ordo "dinner table" (formerly altar). Does this action indicate that Newchurch has abandoned the dogmatic Catholic teaching on Original Sin and that thus the New Order "Rite of Initiation" (formerly Baptism) is null and void?
THE TRADITIO FATHERS REPLY.
The matter of the font, if any, is not the real problem, which is the use of invalid, non-Biblical forms for the pseudo-sacrament now called by Newchurch the "Rite of Initiation." The form for a valid Sacrament of Baptism is very clear from the words of Our Lord in St. Matthew's Gospel (28:19): Ego te baptizo in nomine Patris, et Filii, et Spritus Sancti. There is no "Amen."
Even Newchurch itself has now admitted that many of its "initiations" are invalid because its presbyters are not using Christ's Own form, but have been substituting invalid forms (in the vulgar tongues), such as: "We baptize you... " or "...in the name of the Creator, the Redeemer, and the Sanctifier." Many other bizarre forms have been documented.
You have also pointed to another problem. The one baptizing (ordinarily a priest, and Newchurch has not ordained priests since 1968, merely "installed presbyters") must "faciendi quod facit Ecclesia," that is, do what the Church intends to do by the Sacrament. If that intention is absent, the Baptism is invalid, null and void, fake. The necessary purpose of the Sacrament is to remit Original Sin, not just to admit the recipient into the Newchurch club.
Thus, as you conclude, the New Order" initiation" is null and void (invalid). Without the Sacrament of Baptism, Newchurch is entirely devoid of grace and subsequent pseudo-sacraments it simulates are also worthless to the recipients, just as they would be for Protestants in a similar situation. At this point, according to the teaching of the Catholic Church, it is reasonable to assume that the preponderance of Newchurch "initiations" are invalid either because of widespread invalidity of form or intention, at least since around 2000, when the invalid forms and intentions became widespread.
Now we know how some of the bankrupt Newchurch's collections are being spent: on sex parties! Presbyter Michael McCoy, Dean of the U.K.'s St. Mary's Newcastle Newcathedral, appears to have been the principal organizer of such an event, which included not only the presbyters of the Newcathedral but also some of the staff and volunteers. Presbyter-Dean McCoy has committed suicide, and on December 12, 2022, the Newbishop of Newcastle, Robert Byrne, quietly abdicated saying at the time only that the Newepiscopacy had become "too much of a burden." Now we know the real reason.
The sex party become known among the Newcathedral community, and formal complaints were lodged about "a sex party taking place in the p[resbyter]s' living quarters attached to Newcastle Cathedral." The Newchurch cathedral had become a "laughing" stock among the community. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the The Sunday Times.]
Traditional Catholics, it is impossible to exaggerate what an vile, filthy, and immoral organization the Newchurch of the New Order is. Not a week now goes by without several cases of Newbishops and Newcardinals being involved in sex crimes, many of them against children, and in gross embezzlement of funds donated by Newchurch parishioners, often for the poor. Even Francis-Bergoglio himself has been implicated as the mastermind in a 350,000,000 USD embezzlement involving funds donated to Newchurch for the poor, which was lost in a London real-estate fraud. A trial on the matter is currently going on in Newvatican. But you can be sure that the mastermind Bergoglio will get off scot free, and he will eventually be made a Newchurch Unsaint. After all, his authority in Newchurch supersedes that of the court!
As the Newchurch of the New Order comes ever closer to bankruptcy, the Newarchdiocese of Seattle, Washington, has announced a sweeping plan in which every two Newparishes would be reduced to one, and every two presbyter-pastors reduced to one. The abandoned Newparishes could be sold off to pay court judgments to victims of Newchurch's sex crimes against children or turned into what are euphemistically called "homeless" shelters. (Recent studies indicate that the population that has previously been called "homeless" is now composed principally of drug addicts and other societal malcontents, not those who have lost their jobs in the troubled economy.)
Like other Newchurch dioceses, Seattle is seeing the bottom fall out of its already-reduced Unholy Mess attendance. Between 2010 and 2019 Seattle lost yet another 11 per cent of its members, whose numbers have been sinking for decades. The number of presbyters is similarly tanking, as very few young men wish to become part of the paedophile-infested Newchuch of the New Order, whose Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust has been growing, not receding. Only 80 presbyters now remain in the entire Newarchdiocese. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Seattle Times.]
Traditional Catholics, the corrupt Newarchdiocese has been bankrupting its Newparishes by "converting" Newparish funds into its own coffers. Two-thirds of the current 136 Newparishes are operating at a deficit. Seattle Newchurchers are losing confidence in the viability of their New Order sect and have been scandalized by their Newarchbishop, Paul Etienne, spending 2,400,000 USD on a new mansion for himself. Some Newchurchers have futilely appealed to the Newvatican, which almost invariably backs up its Newbishops against its members. The axe on some Newparishes may start falling as early as March 2023.
On December 10, 2022, Francis-Bergoglio put aside his prepared speech and stunned his audience of Spanish Newseminarians by literally cursing out the "fucking [sic] careerists who fuck [sic] up the lives of others," referring to the clergy in his own Newchurch. Bergoglio then went on to excoriate his Newchurch clergy as "those who climb [the hierarchy] to show their ass." Some of the Newseminarians were so shocked that the Unholy Father could be so vile that they quoted Bergoglio's exact words to the Italian media, such as La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana, which reported Bergoglio's words.
Of course, there is nothing new in this. Bergoglio as a "Holy Father" is an imposter, who has a foul mouth and a vengeful temperament. He has called Neoconservative/pseudo-traditionalist Newchurchers, for example, "shit-eaters." When Bergoglio was functioning as a Newchurch presbyter in Buenos Aires, he was censured by his superior for "habitual use of vulgar language [and] deviousness." He has ruined many an annual Christmas party, put on by the Newvatican to recognize the hard work of its employees, by bad-mouthing for an hour in front of their families the shocked workers, who do Bergoglio's daily bidding for pittance wages.
Bergoglio's targets of vengeance on this occasion were his own Newchurch presbyters who do not give "absolution" to unrepentant sinners. You will recall that in 1973 Newchurch abolished the Sacrament of Penance and substituted for it a non-sacramental "Rite of Reconciliation." Now Bergoglio has destroyed even this fake non-sacrament. He ordered that his presbyters should "forgive everything ... even if there is no intention [on the part of the sinner] to repent."
Bergoglio declared presbyters who did not "absolve" unrepentant murderers, sodomites, thieves, and the like as "criminals" themselves. Against the apostate Bergoglio, Catholic Sacramental theology going back two millennia teaches that the penitent must have contrition and a "firm purpose of amendment"; otherwise, "absolution" is to be withheld and, if it is nevertheless given, is null and void. Bergoglio's dictate is just another example of his heresy.
Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio is becoming more and more obviously demented. His apostasy from the Catholic Faith, which is based in the Communistic, Modernistic heresy bred in him starting from his days with the Liberation-Theology Newjesuits in Argentina, is obviously taking an increasing toll on him as his time in Newchurch power dwindles. If at this late date anyone still believes that Bergoglio is a real pope or that Newchurch is really Catholic, this report should once and for all disabuse such a person from ever associating with the Newchurch of the New Order and its fake Mess, non-sacraments, and vile immorality ever again.
Nancy Pelosi, formerly the third most powerful person in the U.S. Government as Speaker of the House of Representatives, now out because her party lost the last election, wants an exorcism. A pro-abortionist and member of the apostate Newchurch, she nevertheless claims to be a "devout Catholic." Yet her own Newchurch of the New Order has refused her the exorcism. In fact, it had already interdicted heri from munching the fake (invalid) Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid because of her public advocacy for abortion.
On January 21, 2023, Pelosi called for her home in San Francisco, California, to be exorcised after there was a purported break-in and attack upon her husband Paul by a vagrant on October 28, 2023. However, an investigative report in the Santa Barbara Observer found that that this story was merely a cover-up for political purposes. That there was in fact no break-in; Pelosi knew the man, whom Paul may have been soliciting for sexual favors. On May 28, 2023, Pelosi had been arrested on drunk-driving charges after he left a Napa County bar totally inebriated. One report indicated that on that occasion there was a man in his car, whom he may have picked up at the bar.
Even Newvatican's Chief Exorcist, Gabriele Amorth, who died in 2016, openly admitted the fact that Newchurch's "New Ritual," adopted in 1972 under the Unsaint Paul VI-Montini, is worthless. Amorth, who was old enough to have been actually ordained in the Sacrament of Holy Orders, said that he spurned that fake (invalid) "New Ritual" and used only the traditional Catholic Rituale Romanum of 1947. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the New York Post.]
Traditional Catholics, a fake "exorcism" by Newchurch wouldn't make any difference anyway because the Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church, and its Newclergy from the Newpopes on down, have no Sacramental power (potestas ordinum) because they have since 1968 not received the valid Sacrament of Holy Orders. They have no more Sacramental power than Protestant ministers, which is to say no Sacramental power at all.
On January 3, 2023, Michel Aupetit, appointed by Newpope Francis-Bergoglio in 2017 as Newarchbishop of Paris, France, is now under criminal investigation for sexual assault on a woman who was mentally defective. Aupetit is the latest Newcardinal to be personally implicated in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. He had been implicated in breaking his vow of chastity with the handicapped woman and abdicated his Newarchepiscopate.
Newchurch in France, as elsewhere, is operating under a cloud of gross immorality, since the publication in October 2021 of an independent commission's report that Newchurch clergy, including eleven Newbishops, had raped, sodomized, and otherwise sexually assaulted children. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Agence France-Presse.]
Traditional Catholics, French prosecutors are also investigating Newcardinal Jean-Pierre Richard, who was appointed to be Newarchbishop of Bordeaux, France, by Benedict-Ratzinger in 2006. Richard confessed publicly to "reprehensible" sex crimes against a 14-year-old girl, but Ratzinger did nothing about it, nor did Bergoglio. In fact, Richard was kept at the highest levels of Newchurch, in the Newpopes' Council for the Economy, until 2020, when he finally retired in good standing with the Newchurch of the New Order.
As Newchurch moves to shut down the Half New Order Vatican II "New Latin Mess" of 1962 in Newdioceses around the world through the decree Traditionis custodes and a reported second decree about to be issued that will banish the 1962 New Latin Mass from all Newdioceses, Newbishops around the world are now moving to suppress the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New Mess" of 1969 when simulated facing away from the congregation (ad orientem), a position favored by Neocons and pseudo-traditionalists. Of course, both versions of the Newchurch Mess, 1962 and 1969, are invalid because of defect of form, matter, and minister, just like Protestant services.
The latest Newarchdiocese to suppress the ad orientem orientation is Cincinnati, Ohio, joining a number of other Newdioceses in the ban. However, suppression of this orientation is not the only ban being imposed. In those churches that still have a traditional altar, that altar cannot be used. The Novus Ordo freestanding altar must be used. Nor can Novus Ordo freestanding altars be moved so that the traditional altar can be used. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
Traditional Catholics, thus does Newchurch's march to extirpate anything having the least association with anything traditionally Catholic continues with a vengeance. At the same time that Eastern-rite traditionalists are rioting in the streets to prevent their altars from being sacrilegiously turned around, the Western Neocons and pseudo-traditionalists will grumble a bit, then bend the knee to the apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio.
Lest one should think that Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust is restricted to the United States and Europe, here is just one case of a paedophile Newbishop in the East, in India. The Newchurch Holocaust is out of control -- worldwide.
Newbishop Kannikadass William Antony, of Mysore, near Bombay, India, was charged with four murders, rape, sodomy, kidnapping, and embezzlement, among other crimes. Yet, like his other notorious cover-ups of criminals if they wear a Newchurch miter, Francis-Bergoglio on January 7, 2023, let the man off ecclesiastically with a slap on the wrist, "a period of absence from the ministry." It was Bergoglio himself who appointed the criminal in 2017, so it would be a personal embarrassment to Bergoglio if he did the right thing and excommunicated the criminal.
Antony had been charged by 37 presbyters and 100 laymen over a period of four years, while Bergoglio did nothing. The charges against Antony included murdering four presbyters and embezzling Newchurch funds for eleven years with impunity. He also broke his vow of chastity on numerous occasions through illicit affairs with four mistresses fathering numerous bastards Bergoglio's intimate and member of his Executive Committee to run Newchurch, Newcardinal Oswald Gracias, was recorded as engaging with Antony in a plot to cover-up the crimes. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by UCA Asian News.]
Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio is being excoriated in India for essentially letting off a four-time murderer, who also raped and sodomized Newchurchers in his Newdiocese, not to speak of an embezzler of Newchurch funds into his private pocket. One leader of the campaign against the criminal Newbishop denounced Bergoglio for his acting "too little, too late." Were Newbishop William and Newpope Bergoglio in cahoots? Apparently so. Bergoglio appointed the man to begin with, then let him get off pretty much scot free for the gravest of crimes.
Among the nations of the world, surely one of the most Catholic, along with Ireland, used to be Poland. But since the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) that destroyed the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church, the Poles, along with the Irish, have figured out that the Newchurch of the New Order is a fraud, and most certainly not the Catholic Church.
Also Poland's once "beloved" Newpope JPII-Wojtya has fallen into disrepute, as more and more evidence is published that he supported paedophile clergy in Newchurch, among them one of the most vile paedophiles of all, Marcial Maciel, the founder of the Legionnaires of Christ. Two hard-hitting documentaries, "Tell No One" (2019) and "Hide and Seek" (2021), as well as a six-part television series about the paedophile-supporting Newpope Wojtyla, are said to have been watched by virtually every Pole.
Now Poland's Institute for Church Statistics has released the 2021 statistics in its Annuarium Statisticum Ecclesiae in Polonia, and they show that Newchurch is dying faster than a decapitating Roman sword, in what has been described as a "collapse" of Newchurch in Poland. Now the number of Poles attending the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New Mess" of 1969 and the Half New Order "New Latin Mess" of 1962 fell by almost 10 per cent in just three years, after already falling steadily since at least 2000. Some Newdioceses in Poland have fallen by 20 per cent in the same three years. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by ISKK Poland.]
Traditional Catholics, the future of Newchurch looks just as bleak as the present. In the same three-year period, the number of Newseminarians plummeted by almost 20 per cent. Yet Poland had previously been numbering one out of every four presbyters in Europe. It may have taken sixty years, but the Poles, as so many Newchurchers around the world, have gotten the message about the paedophile apostate fraud that is the Newchurch of the New Order. And they are jumping off the Newchurch ship ever faster, like lemmings into the sea.
Sometimes the workings of Divine Justice are just too patent to deny. So it was on January 14, 2023, in the middle of the night, when Carlos Alonso decided that he would steal the venerated statute of St. Michael the Archangel from Christ the King Church in Monterrey, Mexico.
Alonso had already committed the Capital Sin of Gluttony (Gula): he was stumbling drunk when he broke into the church and snatched the statue. As he trespassed, committed breaking and entering, and was hauling out the stolen property, he tripped over his own feet and was impaled by the Archangel's sword. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic News Agency.]
Traditional Catholics, it may seem at times that evildoers get away with their evil deeds, but in the end the Divine Justice will impale them, if not in this life, as is usually the case, then in the next. That applies to common thieves as well as paedophile Newpopes, Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters. For further information on how you can stand on the right hand of God with St. Michael and the saved sheep against Satan and the damned goats, and how you can receive the powerful intercession of the Holy Archangel who stood against Satan for God, proclaiming "Quis ut Deus? (Who is like God?), click on the TRADITIO Network's Confraternity of St. Michael department. For as we pray in the "Dies Irae" Sequence of the Traditional Catholic Requiem Mass (suppressed by the apostate Newchurch of the New Order):
Inter oves locum præsta,
Et ab hædis me sequestra,
Statuens in parte dextra.
Amongst the sheep offer me a place,
And from the goats separate me
Setting me on your right hand.
As Ralph Wiltgen pointed out in his historic 1968 work on the Vatican II Anti-council, entitled "The Rhine Flows into the Tiber: The Unknown Council," the Roman Catholic Church (the Tiber) was destroyed as the "institutional" Church at that Anti-council, mainly through the machinations of the Modernist heretics from Germany (the Rhine) and its satellites the Netherlands and Switzerland. Now it is again from the Rhine that priestesses have been introduced into Newchurch, starting in Switzerland.
In August 2022, it has now been revealed, a laywoman was allowed to "concelebrate" the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Ordinary "New Mess" of 1969. Monica Schmid, was by no means apologetic, but vocally aligned herself with the Protestant heresy. Alongside the laywoman was a male "deacon" wearing a rainbow "stole" emblematic of homosexuality. The woman was outed in a video of the event, in which she joined with the presbyters in holding up her hands, Protestant style, during the "consecration" and pronouncing the words of "consecration." Of course, the whole Mess was as invalid, that is, fake as a Protestant service because Newchurch has not ordained priests since 1968 and because the "New Mess" is not a Catholic Mass, but a Protestant-Masonic-Pagan fraud.
Moreover, even if this Mess were valid -- which it most certainly was not -- concelebration itself reeks of heresy and was pushed by the Modernist heretics at the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) and introduced into the Newchurch "liturgy" when the heretic Newpope Paul VI-Montini approved the Anti-council's Constitution "Sacrosanctum Concilium" on December 4, 1963. Such concelebration (even with a legitimate priest) is prohibited as vitiating the unique role of the individual priest as alter Christus and against Catholic Tradition. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
Traditional Catholics, prominent among the Modernist heretics who worked to destroy the Catholic Faith at the Vatican II Anti-council were Josef Ratzinger (who later styled himself Newpope Benedict XVII) and his bosom buddy, the Newjesuit Karl Rahner, who both hailed from Germany; and Hans Kung, of Switzerland. Ratzinger and Rahner were placed under suspicion of heresy by the Holy Office of Pope Pius XII. Kung's license to teach theology was revoked, after which he became a Freemason and was excommunicated. The Rhine did indeed flow into the Tiber to destroy the Catholic Church, and is doing so again.
One of Francis-Bergoglio's leading candidates for succession to the Newpapacy has been included in charges by more than 130 victims for sex crimes against him and 90 other Newclergy in the latest tranche of lawsuits. A total of 2,400 cases have so far been filed against Newchurch in Quebec alone. The latest victim, Pamela Groleau, courageously ripped off her mask of anonymity on January 13, 2023, and confronted Quebec's Newcardinal Marc Ouellet to the face, like St. Paul to Peter.
Groleau was an intern at Ouellet's Quebec Newarchdiocese when she states that Ouellet sexually assaulted her. Bergoglio appointed Ouellet as Prefect of Newbishops, so it turns out that Bergoglio -- no surprise here -- has appointed a rooster to guard the henhouse! In addition to Ouellet, 96 Canadian presbyters have also been charged in the latest tranche of sex crimes.
Pamela Groleau has also given a major blow to Bergoglio himself, who she says is involved in a cover-up favoring her assailant, Newcardinal Ouellet. She has called on all victims of Newchurch leaders to stand up against Bergoglio, Ouellet, and their ilk, who are still running the Newchurch of the New Order. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.]
Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's response as usual was to side with the criminal element in his Newhierarchy against men, women, and children who are their victims. Yet many of the victims, apparently suffering from Stockholm Syndrome, in which victims pathologically play into the hands of their victimizers, remain in the fake Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church. Bergoglio has indicated various other successors to himself in the past, but each one of them has been disqualified over the last ten years for sex crimes and other causes.
No one can forget Francis-Bergoglio's introduction of the pagan cult of Pachamama, the nude pagan fertility goddess, into Newchurch, blessing her right there on October 4, 2019, in front of the desecrated high altar of St. Peter's Basilica, with several Newcardinals bowing in reverence to the goddess. Newchurch has gone beyond Protestantism now to outright Paganism. Just as Bergoglio wanted, worship of the goddess has started to spread through Latin America. It's all part of the Vatican II Anti-council's Oecumenical Heresy: "we all worship the same gods."
Pachamama-worshipping Newchurchers in Mexico are now slipping into paganism once again, like their Aztec and Mayan ancestors. They give gifts to pagan gods in in exchange for health, good fortune, and protection from evil. They often participate in animal sacrifices to the gods and worship Newchurch "saints," incorporating practices from pagan beliefs. On December 21, 2022, Pachamama-worshipping Newchurchers tied a Mexican Baptist woman to a tree and beat her to within a centimetre of her life on December 21, 2022. The woman suffered severe internal injuries and is now hospitalized in critical condition. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Christian Post.]
Traditional Catholics, religious wars have broken out in Mexico between Newchurchers, Protestants, and anti-Christian left-wing groups, with the connivance of the drug cartels. By this time Newchurchers are so confused with the oecumenical heresy that there have been intimidations, extortions, abductions, human trafficking, and even murders. Whereas the true Catholic Church had brought the Mexicans out of paganism, the apostate Newchurch of the New Order and its Newpopes are leading them right back in.
There have been several reports of late showing that the Newpopes have been doing an absolutely incompetent job of protecting the art treasures housed in the Newvatican. Tourists have destroyed ancient Roman busts, St. Peter's Basilica is absolutely filthy, and now it appears that a Newmonsignor of St. Peter's Basilica may have purloined priceless artworks from Newvatican for his personal collection.
Newmonsignor Michele Basso, one of 24 canons of St. Peter's Basilica, died on Epiphany, January 6, 2023. Found in his possession were seventy paintings, sculptures, and other artworks worth millions, well beyond Basso's modest annual stipend. These pieces include what is perhaps the original of the famous Euphronius Krater, a priceless work from ancient Greece depicted in practically every art-history text. In fact a police investigation had once been opened against Basso, who would provide no information on where he acquired the pieces. The investigation could not reach a conclusion, so there was no prosecution. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Crux News Service.]
Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio is already under fire for violating his oath to keep safe the Church's and humanity's artworks, originally owned by the Catholic Church, but since 1964 in the clutches of the illegitimate Newchurch of the New Order. Now we see just what kind of Philistine and barbarian Bergoglio and his Newchurch minions really are.
A Dutch journalist living in Poland, Ekke Overbeek, published on December 29, 2022, evidence indicating that "Unsaint" Newpope JPII-Wojtyla covered up his Newclergy's sex crimes while serving as Newarchbishop of Krakow, Poland, and helped them escape punishment. Even though Wojtyla's complicity was already suspected, the apostate Newchurch of the New Order, founded in 1964 to replace the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church, rushed to Novus-Ordo beatify Wojtyla just six years after his death and con-anize him just nine years after his death. Overbeek combed the archives of the former Polish Communist Secret Police and found ten well-documented cases of abuse by Wojtyla's presbyters, whom Wojtya then protected from being identified or paying any penalty. The implication is that the Polish Communist Secret Police then had Wojtyla in their clutches for blackmail.
Poles have been scandalized to learn that their Newchurch clergy and their "Unsaint" Newpope were mired in sex crimes. The six-part television series "What Did John Paul II Know?" (2021) and the documentaries "Tell No One" (2019) and "Hide and Seek" (2021) have shocked Polish Newchurchers, and Newchurchers around the world, with their revelations about rampant paedophile crimes by Newchurch clergy in Poland, and the involvement of "Unsaint" Newpope JPII-Wojtyla. It is said that virtually every Pole has viewed one or more of the documentaries.
The Newchurch of the New Order does not have a valid canonization process, but only a corrupted "con"-anization substitute for the purpose of Modernist propaganda only. Even for its over-the-top fakery (like making the Communist Oscar Romero a Novus Ordo "saint"), Newchurch did an incredibly sloppy job of investigating Wojtyla, rushing to make the Polish Newpope a "santo subito," a sudden saint, or rather Unsaint. Part of the campaign was sponsored by a consortium of Polish travel agencies wanting to buck up lagging tourism to Wojtyla's native Poland.
As cases of paedophile crimes by Newchurch presbyters, Newbishops, and even Newcardinals poured into Wojtyla's office and that of Newcardinal Josef Ratzinger (aka Benedict XVI)'s, Wojtyla's Vicar for Sex Crimes (Doctrine of the Faith), virtually nothing was done by either of them. Wojtyla even sent the notorious Newcardinal Bernard Law back to Boston, Massachusetts, without firing him. It was in Boston that Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust first came to public notice in 2002. Wojtyla also showed very public favor and praise to presbyter Marcial Maciel, founder of the Legionnaires of Christ, though it was well known in Newchurch that Maciel was a sex criminal, having assaulted boys, girls, men, and women without reserve. He even fathered children, whom he brought to see Wojtyla personally at Newvatican.
Even a Newvatican report in November 2020 denounced Wojtyla for his promotion of the paedophile Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick, of Washington, D.C., who was known to be a serial sex criminal up and down the East Coast of the United States and had so been reported to Newvatican and its Newpopes on numerous occasions. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the "National Catholic Reporter.]
Traditional Catholics, voices are now rising even in Poland to "overturn [Wojtyla's] former image" and show that "he did nothing" to stop Newchurch sex crimes against children. These Poles are calling for the Second Paedophile Newpope to be stripped of his Newchurch "sainthood" and recognized as the "total hypocrite" that he was.
On January 11, 2023, the Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) reported the results to date of its investigation of sex crimes in the state of Kansas against children perpetrated by Neo-SSPX priest-presbyters. The four-year investigation so far has revealed 188 clergymen it suspects to have been involved in these crimes. This number includes both Neo-SSPX clergymen and Newchurch clergymen from the four Newchurch dioceses in Kansas. The KBI report indicates that 125 criminal cases were initiated and that 30 charging affidavits were distributed to prosecutors involving both the Neo-SSPX and the Newchurch.
The KBI added the Neo-SSPX to its investigation in 2019 and reported at the time that the Neo-SSPX was not fully cooperating with its investigation. The KBI stated that it will continue its investigation against the Neo-SSPX. Further reports of paedophile crimes are being entertained by the Kansas Protection Report Center at (800) 922-5330.
The original traditional Society of St. Pius X was headed by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, who denounced the apostate Newchurch of the New Order, which was founded in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council to replace the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church. Upon his Archbishop's death in 1991, the SSPX was reorganized. Bernie Fellay became Superior General in 1994 and pushed the Neo-SSPX in the direction of joining the Newchurch of the New Order, which was founded in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council. That merger has already been partially accomplished. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
Traditional Catholics, it is clear that the closer the Neo-SSPX has moved after the death of Archbishop Lefebvre toward joining the apostate Newchurch of the New Order, the more corrupt it has itself become. Similar charges to those in Kansas are being investigated in Gabon, Africa, where the Neo-SSPX has an installation. It is quite revealing that as Newchurch has been sinking further and further into its Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, the Neo-SSPX has said virtually nothing against Newchurch or its implicated Newpopes, perhaps the worst of whom, as far as suborning paedophile crimes is concerned, Benedict-Ratzinger, just died on December 31, 2022.
On January 6, 2023, the Feast of the Epiphany of Our Lord Jesus Christ, Mel Gibson announced that he would begin shooting the long-awaited sequel to Gibson's 2004 mega-hit "The Passion of the Christ" in mid-2023. The sequel is titled "The Passion of the Christ: Resurrection" and will tell the story of the three days between the Crucifixion and the Resurrection. Jim Caviezel will reprise the role of Christ.
Gibson is a Traditional Catholic (although his lifestyle does not always reflect his belief), who paid dearly for his commitment to completing filming of the 2004 film against incredible opposition from anti-Christian forces. When Gibson was making his Biblical blockbuster, he was attacked not only by Leftist Hollywood but also by Jewish organizations. The Sons of the Covenant (B'nai B'rith) and its antagonistic leader, Abraham Foxman (who was never even seen wearing a kipah) constantly attacked Gibson for his Traditional Catholic faith and even tried to attack Gibson's elderly father physically, also an outspoken Traditional Catholic.
Yet Gibson got the last laugh on Hollywood and his antagonists when "The Passion of the Christ" garnered over 600,000,000 USD in box-office receipts as against 30,000,000 in production costs. The film remains the highest-grossing independent film of all time, selling 60,000,000 tickets in its initial run. Newchurchers (who are not Catholics) were somewhat diffident about the film, but Protestant Christians rented busses to take their congregations to see the Biblical epic, often more than once.
Gibson had to produce the film himself independently because no Hollywood producer would take it on, unlike MGM which produced 1961's classic "King of Kings." It was from the proceeds of this film that Gibson built the Holy Family Church in Agoura Hills, California, an independent Traditional Catholic Church that is still operating, some twenty years later. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Los Angeles Times.]
Traditional Catholics, now it seems that Gibson is going to be subjected to the same persecution against Christianity in 2023 as he faced in 2004. Organizers of the February 21, 2023, Mardi Gras Parade in New Orleans, Louisiana, disinvited Gibson as Co-Grand Marshall because they had received "threats" of violence. The organizations signing a joint statement opposing Gibson's appearance were: The Sons of the Covenant, the Jewish Federation of Greater New Orleans, the Greater New Orleans Clergy, and the Jewish Community Relations Council.
In what appears to be the ultimate paedophile cover-up, the personal secretary, Newarchbishop Georg (aka Gorgeous George" because of his magazine cover photo) to the Second Paedophile Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger, revealed on January 6, 2023, that Ratzinger, apparently afraid that he would be hung by his own petard in his admissions of complicity in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, ordered before his death the destruction of all his papers "without exceptions and without loopholes." Ganswein, whom Ratzinger name as his executor, made the admission in his tell-all book, ironically entitled Nient'altro che la verita, released twelve days after Ratzinger's death.
Ganswein had been Ratzinger's doting Ratzinger cat's-paw for years and so may have performed this immoral act, but he has not so far revealed what he has done. The First Paedophile Newpope, Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla, tried to pull the same cover-up, but his personal secretary ignored the immoral order and preserved Wojtya's papers for history. Ganswein does not show the same integrity and may destroy the papers to protect Ratzinger from being outed as even more of a paedophile accomplice than the world already knows. A case filed by a child victim is still pending against him, even after his death, in a German court.
On the other hand, we know that Ratzinger's courageous personal aide of many years, Paolo Gabriele, was so offended by Ratzinger's actions in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust that in 2012 he secretly copied Ratzinger's papers and turned them over to the Italian press. The threat of revealing the papers was used to secure the abdication of the Second Paedophile Newpope. Ratzinger had claimed in his Declaration "ingravescent aetate" (increasingly-burdensome old age) as the excuse for his abdication, but that was obviously a mere excuse, as he lived almost ten years after his abdication. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the America: The [New]jesuit Review.]
Traditional Catholics, Georg Ganswein was abruptly summoned on January 9, 2023, to an inquisition before Francis-Bergoglio. Apparently, this occurred in reaction to Ganswein's tell-all book that was not favorable to the Third Paedophile Newpope. The result of that meeting has not yet been revealed, but Ganswein had de facto already been declared a persona non grata and expelled from Bergoglio's Newpapal household. Ratzinger, for his part, had imprisoned Gabriele for a month in the Newvatican prison in a cell hardly three metres square. Bergoglio may have something just as punitive planned for Ganswein.
Benedict-Ratzigzer's body wasn't even consigned to the tomb, buried with his Acta Gestorum, contained in three coffins and sealed with the waxen seals of three Newvatican officials, before some clueless Newchurchers on January 5, 2023, started screaming "Santo Subito " (Immediate Saint). There is nothing new about this Newchurch "Unsaint" nonsense. It also occurred after the death of JPII-Wojtyla, whose fake (invalid) Unsainthood was first instigated by Polish Travel Agencies who hoped to profit from increased tourism to Poland. In any case, Newchurch gutted the process of valid canonization into invalidity ("con-anization"), along with its fake (invalid) "New Mess" and new "sacraments."
Both Wojtyla, the First Paedophile Newpope, and Ratzinger, the Second Paedophile Newpope, have been deeply complicit in sex crimes against children. Ratzinger was head of Newchurch's Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust against innocent children, over which he presided as Prefect of the Congregation that excused paedophile sex crimes of Newchurch clergy for 24 years before he became Newpope, and then for another eight years as Newpope.
In the last 400 years before the Vatican II Anti-council, sanctity was so rare in the papacy that there had been only two Pope-Saints: Pope St. Pius V, who among the other great acts of his papacy canonized for all time the Catholic and Apostolic Roman Mass, what we now call the Traditional Latin Mass (not the "New Latin Mess" of 1962!), and Pope St. Pius X, who confirmed that Mass and restored the traditional Gregorian chant of the Church. These two great Saints had to wait 140 and 40 years, respectively, for valid canonization, and that was a relatively short period. Many Saint had to wait many centuries of careful vetting and re-vetting before valid canonization.
Now the Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church, has in just forty years already con-anonized two of its own (Paul VI-Montini, who implemented every single document of the Anti-council to destroy the Catholic Church, and JPII-Wojtyla, the First Paedophile Newpope, under whom Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust became public). Now there is a push to con-anize "subito" (immediately) a third (Benedict-Ratzinger, the Second Paedophile Newpope. These men are "cons," not Saints of the Catholic Church, but Unsaints of the Newchurch, which gutted the process into invalidity, along with the Mess and Sacraments. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Italian News Agency ANSA.]
Traditional Catholics, Newchurch is again making a laughing-stock of itself Recently, new documents showing JPII-Wojtyla's personal complicity in the sex crimes against children have come to light. Benedict-Ratzinger's complicity in many such crimes is well known. The word in Newrome is that it was the threat of the Italian press, who had the goods on him, to publish the documents provided by his long-time personal body man, Paolo Gabriele, that led to Ratzinger's abrupt abdication.
On January 3, 2023, a booklet was published by Typografia Vaticana that contained the programme for Benedict-Ratzinger's funeral. The booklet made it clear -- and several news media quickly picked up on this -- that the leader of the Modernists would not even get a real funeral, in spite of all the folderol that took place.
The Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church, didn't even pretend to make the service appear like a valid Mass, not even bothering to use the so-called "Roman Canon," a mangled and invalid form of the Catholic and Apostolic Canon of the Mass (which includes the invalid form of consecration). This Canon, or standard, which Newchurch calls merely a "eucharistic prayer," was mangled by the Vatican II Anti-council officials into invalidity. Newchurch for its invalid Mess (which is not a Mass) uses one of some one hundred fabricated, Protestantized (with a good splash of Judaism), invalid (fake) "eucharistic prayers." Ratzinger's funeral was relegated to No. 3, one of the worst.
Moreover, since 1968, Newchurch has neither ordained priests nor consecrated bishops to "simulate" its fake Mess, instead using a Protestantized rite for the "installation" of presbyters and overseers (ministers). The apostate Newpope has also ordered that that Holy Gospel not be chanted, according to tradition, in both Sacred Languages of the New Covenant, Latin and Greek, but merely recited in the vulgar tongues of English and Italian. He has even begged off from simulating himself the fake service, but will merely sit off on the side in a copanaeum (cope), while a Newcardinal underling does the dirty work. Like a Protestant minister, Bergoglio will serve merely as the "presider."
Traditional Catholics, it is no surprise that Francis-Bergoglio has also ordered the suppression at Ratzinger's funeral of the sublime requiem hymn of the Church, the Dies Irae. It is too Catholic. It refers to death, Purgatory, Satan, and the end of the world. That is not acceptable to the apostate quasi-atheist. The Die Irae has been one of the prizes of the Catholic Church's musical repertoire. It started off as a Gregorian-chant hymn composed by the thirteenth-century Franciscan friar, Thomas of Celano. Since then, practically every great composer has set the haunting hymn, which has buried billions of Catholics, to serious music. The greatest examples are Mozart's "Requiem Mass in D" and Verdi's "Requiem Mass in Memory of Manzoni." Ratzinger was said to favor Mozart, but Bergoglio and the Newchurch of the New Order are truly Philistines and cultural barbarians. They will have none of it.
As part of its propaganda crusade to make some kind of a Modernist god out of Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger, Newchurch dredged up a truly laughable farce when it released on December 31, 2022, Ratzinger's "Spiritual Testament," which was written in 2006. Included in the short document was this paragraph:
For 60 years now, I have accompanied the path of theology, especially Biblical studies, and have seen seemingly unshakeable theses collapse with the changing generations, which turned out to be mere hypotheses: the liberal generation (Harnack, Jülicher, etc.), the existentialist generation (Bultmann, etc.), the Marxist generation.
The ignorant, and that certainly includes the vast majority of Newchurchers, will not get the joke. All of the Modernist heretics whom Ratzinger cited were fellow-travelers of Ratzinger himself (along with Karl Rahner, Hans Kung, Hans Urs von Balthasar, Pierre Teilhard de Chardin, Yves Congar, Henri de Lubac, and so many others condemned by the Holy Office under Pope Pius XII and John XXIII). After all, it was Ratzinger himself, the Arch-Modernist heretic, who was chiefly responsible in 1964 for the replacement of the Catholic Church by the apostate Newchurch of the New Order, when he introduced the Oecumentical Heresy into the Vatican II Anti-council. That most extreme of Modernist heresies proclaimed that "we all worship the same gods" and "all religions are true."
That heresy contradicted the dogmatic teaching: "The Roman Catholic Church is the only Church of Jesus Christ." According to Ratzinger's Oecumenical Heresy, the Protestants, the Mormons, the Seventh Day Adventists, the Jews, the Islamists, the Sikhs, the Hindus, the Buddhists, the Taoists, and the rest of the congeries of false religions were true as well. Apparently, the "master of catechesis," as Francis-Bergoglio called Ratinzger on January 4, 2022, flunked Catechism 1A! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Vatican News.]
Traditional Catholics, most Newchurchers, including the Neocon pseudo-traditionalists of the "New Latin Mess" of 1962, would be surprised to learn that far from being a "traditionalist," as ignorant news-writers and pseudo-traditionalists speak of him, Ratzinger was. officially declared by Pope Pius XII and the Holy Office to be under suspicion of heresy when the "institutional" Church was Catholic, before the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965). Later, Ratzinger suffered the ultimate embarrassment when his catechism, entitled Introduction to Christianity (1968) was banned because of heresy by the Cardinal Primate of Poland.
On January 2, 2022, just as Benedict-Ratzinger's embalmed cadaver -- no pope Ratzinger, he decided to have his body embalmed contrary to overwhelming papal tradition -- was being carted via a modified white Sports Utility Vehicle to the desecrated St. Peter's Basilica, site of so many fake (invalid) Messes and the "blessing" of the idol of the nude pagan fertility goddess Pachamama -- the German court of Traunstein, Bavaria, announced that Ratzinger's death would not stop the case currently being heard on his complicity in paedophile crimes.
Most have never heard that Ratzinger was being prosecuted in a German court for paedophile complicity. Most have never heard of the independent Investigating Commission's report that he was actively complicit in hiding paedophile presbyters as Newarchbishop in Munich. Indeed, in the days after his death, the world has been subjected to wall-to-wall propaganda about the purportedly innocuous, avuncular Second Paedophile Newpope. There has been no semblance of objectivity about Ratzinger, the former Nazi youth and Modernist heretic.
Benedict-Ratzinger has been charged in the case of a child who was sexually assaulted by a criminal presbyter convicted numerous times for such crimes. The German court is to hear proof that Ratzinger hid criminal acts by this and other presbyters of his and even made further such criminal acts possible, as confirmed by minutes of the Newarchdiocesan meeting which he had lied that he had not attended. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by German News Tag 24.]
Traditional Catholics, for 34 years, Ratzinger as Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith and then as Newpope continued the cover-up of literally tens of thousands of case of paedophile crimes by Newchurch presbyters, Newbishops, Newarchbishops, and Newcardinals. After the propaganda for the Unsaint-to-be shortly dies away, the ghosts of the raped children will be heard from the grave. Who knows but that we shall see an apparition of Ratzinger consumed in the flames of Hell, just as the First Paedophile Newpope, JPII-Wojtyla, was seen to appear in Poland the year after his death.
Among many of Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger's other abominations -- providing the theological foundation for the Newchurch of the New Order to replace the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church in 1968, complicity in the paedophile sex crimes of Newchurch clergy, perpetrating the ruse of the New Latin Mess of 1962 against pseudo-traditionalist Newchurchers -- Ratzinger advanced the heresy that the Jews (Talmudists) could enter into Heaven by adherence to the Old Covenant and without recourse to faith in Jesus Christ, contradicting Christ Himself, Who had proclaimed: "No one comes to the Father, but by me."
Heretical as Ratzinger was in that statement, he went even further by contending that it is immoral to convert the Jews to the Christian Faith. If that statement were true, St. Paul and all the rest of the Apostles were in error. The heresy of that statement is too ludicrous to contemplate. Yet Ratzinger in death is being hailed here in Newrome in the propaganda issuing from Francis-Bergoglio's billion-dollar media empire, paid for by Newchurchers' collections, as a "great theologian, whereas this Ratzinger was also the man who wrote in his book, Jesus of Nazareth: The Infancy Narratives that he didn't know whether animals were present at the Nativity. (What's a manger for: a feeding trough for animals!)
There is no surprise in Ratzinger's rampant heresies. After all, he committed the Most Mortal of Sins against the First Commandment of God, when in 2005, on his first foreign Newpapal junket, he entered the Jewish synagogue at Cologne, Germany, and proceeded to renounce the Christian Faith by formally lighting the menorah in the presence of the Chief Rabbi. The record is clear: Ratzinger was a dyed-in-the-wool Modernist heretic, and certainly no "traditionalist." He was merely a sorcerer who sprinkled his fairy dust to fool the clueless Neocon pseudo-traditionalists.
*Peritus is a Latin word for expert. The periti at Vatican II were the theological advisors to the Council Fathers (bishops). It is well known that the periti in many instances were the guiding force behind the scene in the crafting of the false teachings of Vatican II. The Germans took the lead in the council after the first session. Ratzinger was one of these.
Although Benedict was noted for some things that had the external appearance of conservatism and orthodoxy (e.g.. traditional vestments, allowing the traditional rite of the Mass, favoring some dignity and reverence in the liturgy), this man was no conservative. His theology was truly radical and clearly Modernist. As Father Ratzinger the peritus; as Newcardinal Ratzinger, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith; and as supposed pope, he is responsible for literally billions of souls losing the Catholic Faith. Quite a burden to take before the judgment seat. of God.
Since we cannot know the subjective state of his soul, we must, of course, leave his judgment to God, Who is all merciful and all just, as well as all wise and all knowing. We certainly should pray for his immortal soul. However, he leaves behind a very clear record for all to see. In reality he was no different from (Montini) Paul VI, (Wojtyla) John Paul II, or even (Bergoglio) Francis. He was a promoter of a theological revolution, which has brought about the loss of the Faith for billions of souls. God have mercy!
On December 28, 2022, the Feast of the Holy Innocents, Martyrs, in the 28th year of its apostolate on the internet, the TRADITIO Network logged its 33,000,000th reader. TRADITIO was the first traditional Roman Catholic site to appear on the World Wide Web and was founded on the Feastday of St. Michael the Archangel, September 29, 1994. We were here even before Newvatican was, even before Amazon.com was!
We thank the Lord for our over 33,000,000 readers over these years and for our hundreds of dedicated correspondents from all over the world, who keep us current on everything going on in the bowels of Newvatican, in the inner sancta of various traditional organizations, and at Traditional Latin Mass sites around the world. TRADITIO has been the longest-existing and most read traditional Roman Catholic web site on the World Wide Web.
In their Daily Commentaries, the TRADITIO Fathers do not just copy news reports or the uninformed notions of johnny-come-lately "bloggers" in secular and religious publications, particularly Neocons and pseudo-traditionalists associated with the anti-Catholic Newchurch, who in fact have very little background or understanding of the Traditional Catholic Movement. Nor is the TRADITIO Network enslaved to any particular organization's viewpoint. Instead, the TRADITIO Network provides the hard-hitting, independent analysis and perspective of over half a century of Roman Catholic experience, even from before Vatican II.
The TRADITIO Network is avidly read within the highest bowels of at Newrome and Menzingen (Neo-SSPX). In addition to the Daily Commentaries from the Fathers, including lively commentary on Church news from the traditional perspective, TRADITIO's other fifteen departments provide resources and materials for its readers to study and learn about the traditional Roman Catholic Faith.
We are particularly touched by the many thousands of messages that we have received from Newchurchers of the New Order, including Neocon and pseudo-traditionalist Newchurchers, who tell us that they have been converted to the traditional Roman Catholic Faith because of TRADITIO's uncompromising, independent commentaries and materials. The TRADITIO Network is one of many means through which Our Lord appears be working out the Traditional Catholic Restoration of the 21st century.
At 08:34 UT on Saturday, December 31, 2022, Josef Ratzinger, aka Newpope, or Pseudo-pope, Benedict XVI passed to the judgment of God. "I desire not the death of the wicked, but that the wicked turn from his way and live" (Ezechiel 33:11/DRV). Unfortunately, there was no public indication that Ratzinger did turn in the end from the great evils that he perpetrated upon the Church of God. He never publicly recanted from his Modernist heresy, his complicity in paedophile crimes, and his fraud with the Half New Order "New Latin Mess" of 1962.You will read a lot of nonsense about Ratzinger in the press, on the internet, and especially from pseudo-Catholic Neocon Newchurchers, but, as St. John, Our Lord's closest Apostle stated: "Christ is Truth" (1 John 5:6/DRV), so we must be hard-headed Romans and speak the truth, not mendacious propaganda.
Ratzinger in 2007 with "Summorum pontificum" perpetrated a fraud with the Half New Order "New Latin Mess" of 1962, which was merely a sop to stop an outright schism in his Newchurch of the New Order from the pseudo-traditionalists, as true Traditional Catholics had already rejected Newchurch as a total fraud, like Luther's Lutheran sect, most certainly not the Catholic Church. The fact of the matter, however, is that NEVER ONCE IN HIS ENTIRE NEWPAPACY DID RATZINGER "DO" THE NEW LATIN MESS OF 1962. NEVER. NOT ONCE. That fact says more than all the verbose propaganda documents that the Newchurch of the New Order churns out relentlessly. Traditional Catholics -- not the clueless pseudo-traditionalists, who are not Traditional Catholics -- know this without any doubt.
Far from being a "traditionalist," as ignorant news-writers and Neocon Newchurchers speak of him, RATZINGER WAS A MODERNIST HERETIC HIS ENTIRE LIFE. In fact, it was Ratzinger who personally introduced into the Vatican II Anti-council the Oecumenical Heresy: "The sole Church of Christ subsists (subsistit) in the Catholic Church." To the contrary, Catholic dogma prescribes: "The Roman Catholic Church is (adest) the only Church of Jesus Christ." The Oecumenical Heresy preaches: "we all worship the same gods," "all religions are true." Ratzinger's heresy was introduced into the Anti-council's Constitution (Lumen gentium) as the foundation of the Newchurch of the New Order, which replaced the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church on November 21, 1964.
As Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith" from 1981 to 2005 and then as Newpope from 2005 to 2013, RATZINGER WAS THE MAN PRIMARILY RESPONSIBLE FOR NEWCHURCH'S GREAT SEX & EMBEZZLEMENT HOLOCAUST. It may well have been Divine Justice that gave the final death blow to Ratzinger's reputation, as in January 2022 an independent German Investigating Commission found beyond doubt that Ratzinger was not only aware that his clergy were sexually assaulting children when he was Munich's Newarchbishop but also had been complicit in these crimes by allowing the criminal Newclergy to operate in his Newarchdiocese.
In spite of the Commission's verdict, Ratzinger refused to admit to his crimes, alluding only in a general way to "any [sic] previous faults," but he refused to apologize to the over 100,000 children who were his victims. In fact, he lied about his complicity in the crimes, until the minutes of his Newarchdiocesan meeting were discovered and recorded him as personally present in the decisions.
Traditional Catholics, these are the facts, and no amount of Newchurch or pseudo-traditionalist Neocon propaganda will cover them up. As Sacred Scripture (3 Esdras 4:41) warns: "Magna est veritas, et praevalet (Great is the truth, and it prevails).
It may take God's good time, but the consequences of Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust has been steadily percolating up the Newchurch hierarchy. First it was the presbyters. Then the Newbishops. Then the Newarchbishops. Now it has taken a firm hold within the Newcardinals. The latest two to fall are two Newcardinals from India, one of whom is one of the closest advisors of Francis-Bergoglio. The accused, who have been remanded into police custody, are:
All are charged as accessories after the fact in that they acted in knowing complicity with one of their presbyters, Vincent Pereira, who was charged in numerous sexual assaults against children, including one against a 15-year-old schoolboy. Pereira already spent a year and a half in prison for a similar crime in 2018 and was out on bail for a second such crime in 2022.
According to police, Presbyter Pereira sexually assaulted the boy at the railway station before he and his parents could board the train. Although the parents complained to Newbishop Dabre on November 25, 2022, the Newbishop took no action against the paedophile assailant, nor did the two Newcardinals. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by UCANews.]
Traditional Catholics, the complainant had at least some trust that justice of God would be meted out to the two Newcardinals, Newbishops, and Vicars General, saying: "The long arm of the law will catch them all, sooner or later." If not in this world, then in the next. From the mouth of the child to God's ears. Ex-Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger has also been fingered in such crimes. All the Newpopes after the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) have suborned the rape, sodomy, and sexual assault of children numbering in the hundreds of thousands. The weight of Newchurch's many immoralities, including sex crimes against children, are weighing their souls down to perdiction like Our Lord's millstone in the depth of the sea.
As the Christmas 2022 deadline passed, the volatile situation in the Eastern Church is raging again as traditionalist Eastern presbyters and laymen refuse to follow Francis-Bergoglio's sacrilegious decree that they turn their altars around Novus-Ordo style to face the congregation. Protests are raging in the streets of India and Bergoglio's Newpostolic Administrator is being burned in effigy and run out of his Newchurch residence.
The traditionalist Easterners are courageously following the dictum of St. Paul and standing fast in the Apostolic Tradition that the priest faces God, not the congregation. The Western Newchurch experienced the same crisis under the "Unsaint" Newpope Paul VI-Montini, but the cowardly Westerners acted like cowards and knuckled under to the sacrilege. So Bergoglio, always "The Dictator Pope [Sic]" as he is being increasingly called, has threatened "disciplinary action" if the traditionalist Easterners don't back down from the unadulterated Apostolic Faith. The Syro-Malabar Easterners are the second-largest rite, which, until now, has continued their association with the Newpopes after the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965).
The vast majority of traditionalist presbyters and laymen in the Metropolitan See, numbering, around 500,000, are taking to the streets to protest Bergoglio's decree, which they have publicly burned. When Bergoglio's Newapostolic Administrator attempted to enter the Newcathedral to simulate the New Rite facing the congregation, the traditionalist Easterners confronted Bergoglio's hated Administrator and the Newcathedral administrator from entering upon the sacred ground and committing the sacrilege on November 27, 2022. When a second attempt to commit the sacrilege was made on December 23, 2022, the traditional Easterners rioted, and police had to escort Bergoglio's Newcathedral Administrator out the back door. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by PNS.]
Traditional Catholics, appeals by the Newapostolic Administrator to obey the "[Un]holy Father" and his sacrilege have been summarily rejected. Francis-Bergoglio has lost so much credibility over this issues, as over so many others, most especially Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, that the traditionalist Easterners are in no mood to give up their Apostolic faith and practice for an apostate Newpope. The traditionalist Easterners are giving the traditionalist Westerns a lesson about how they should have fought back against the pretender Newpopes in the late 1960s. If the traditionalist Westerners had then done what the traditionalist Easterners are doing now, the disaster of the Newchurch of the New Order may never have come to fruition.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Upon attending the Sunday Novus Ordo Mess I observed something I never saw happening before. When it was time to distribute communion, the presbyter first gave it to the altar servers. Instead of taking the hosts out of the ciborium with his fingers to lay on their hands, he instead held the ciborium before them and let them use their fingers to take out the host and give the host to themselves. This does not look right to me, and I am asking you what this practice is called Is it licit?
THE TRADITIO FATHERS REPLY.
The whole Newchurch service is called sacrilege and idolatry. It is not a Catholic Mass; it is a Protestant service. The priest is not an ordained priest, but an unordained presbyter, like a Protestant minister. There is no sacramental communion; it is unconsecrated bread because there is no Mass and no priest. Whether the presbyter gives you the bread to munch on, or you take it yourself is immaterial, as it is only bread.
The whole scenario of a Newchurch Mess is totally invalid, mere fakery. The Newchurch of the New Order is most certainly not the Catholic Church. It is a Protestant-Masonic-Pagan fraud. Anyone who attends a Newchurch service, whether the full-blown New Order Mess or the half New Order Vatican II "New" Latin Mess of 1962, is committing a grave sacrilege, every bit as much (if not more) as if he attended a Protestant service. Moreover, he would be associating himself with heresy, one of the gravest of sins against the First Commandment of God.

It appears that Modernist heretic Ex-Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger may be slipping into his final judgment. The 95-year-old is experiencing kidney failure and cardiac difficulties, for which had already been fitted with a pacemaker over a month ago. It is ironic that Ratzinger's health took a sudden turn for the worse on December 28, 2022, the Feast of the Holy Innocents, Martyrs. Ratzinger himself had been deeply implicated in Newchurch's Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust against innocent children, over which he presided as Prefect of the Congregation that excused paedophile sex crimes of Newchurch clergy for 24 years before he became Newpope, and then for another eight years as Newpope.
It may well have been Divine Justice that finally gave the death blow to Ratzinger's reputation, as in January 2022 an independent Investigating Commission found beyond doubt that Ratzinger was not only aware that his Newchurch clergy were sexually assaulting children when he was Munich's Newarchbishop but also that he had been complicit in the crimes by his gross negligence. In spite of the Commission's verdict, Ratzinger refused to admit to his crimes, alluding only in a general way to "any [sic] grievous faults," but he refused to apologize to the over hundreds of thousands of children who were his victims. In fact, he lied about his complicity in the crimes, until the minutes of his Newarchdiocesan meeting were discovered and proved his presence.
On February 10, 2013, Ratzinger declared that the Newchurch of the New Order sede vacante. Under extreme pressure because of his ever-increasing sex scandals and the threat of the Italian press to publish documents demonstrating his personal involvement if he did not abdicate, Ratzinger issued his famous "Declaratio," including these words:
DECLARO ME MINISTERIO EPISCOPI ROMAE ... RENUNTIARE ITA UT A DIE 28 FEBRUARII MMXIII, HORA 20, SEDES ROMAE ... VACET. [I declare that I renounce the Office of Bishop of Rome, so that from February 28, 2013, at 20:00 hours, the See of Rome is vacant.]
Far from being a "traditionalist," as ignorant news-writers and Neocon Newchurchers speak of him, he was a Modernist heretic through and through. In fact, it was Ratzinger's pivotal introduction into the Vatican II Anti-council of the heresy "The sole Church of Christ subsists (subsistit) in the Catholic Church." To the contrary, Catholic dogma prescribes: "The Roman Catholic Church is (adest) the only Church of Jesus Christ." It was Ratzinger who personally introduced what is now called the Oecumenical Heresy: we all worship the same gods, all religions are true. Ratzinger's heresy was introduced in the Anti-council's Constitution (Lumen gentium) as the foundation of the Newchurch of the New Order, which replaced the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church on November 21, 1964.
As far as possible funeral arrangements, nothing is currently known, as Ratzinger's is a unique case. It is highly doubtful that he would receive a Newpapal funeral, as he is no longer the Newpope of the Newchurch of the New Order. The best guess would be some kind of farce like the funeral of a Newcardinal. These usually involve laying the casket flat on the ground, with no catafalque under it or pall covering it, in some kind of non-Catholic Novus Ordo pagan rite. The service will not be a Traditional Latin Mass, of course, but a New Order Protestantized rite. Far from being traditional, Ratzinger as Newpope never once simulated even the Half New Order New Latin Mess of 1962.
As to cremation, who knows? It is highly revealing that the first action taken by the first heretic Newpope of Newchurch, "Unsaint" Paul VI-Montini, in 1963 (in the Instruction De crematione cadaverum) was the approval of this practice, condemned by the Catholic Church as pagan and Masonic, of burning cadavers like garbage instead of giving them a decent Catholic burial. Ratzinger could now make use of this condemned practice. Moreover, Josef Ratzinger has indicated his desire to leave Rome and return to Regensburg, Germany. His elder brother, Ratzinger, who, as it happens, was also involved in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, was not interred in Rome, but in Regensburg. His Ex-Newpope little brother might choose the same location, with or without condemned anti-Catholic cremation.
