More Corruption Found in Francis-Bergoglio's Newvatican Bank
Bank President Testifies that He Was Offered "Protection" to Approve Embezzlement

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Francis-Bergoglio's Embezzlement Trial
Is Exposing Worse and Worse Corruption
In His Newvatican Bank
Several Witnesses Have Fingered Him
As the "Mastermind"
Behind the 350,000,000 USD Fraud
Now His Newvatican Bank President
Has Testified under Oath
That He Was Offered "Protection"
By Two of Bergoglio's High Officials
To Approve an Illegal 150,000,000-USD Loan
To Bail Newvatican Leaders Out
When the Embezzlement Became Public

The corruption in Francis-Bergoglio's Newvatican Bank just gets worse and worse. On February 16, 2023, the Bank President since 2014, Jean-Baptiste De Franssu, testified under oath that he was offered "protection" to approve a 150,000,000-USD loan in the 2014 London real-estate deal that ended up losing 350,000,000 USD of Newchurchers' collections and donated funds in a fraud.

In the Newvatican trail ongoing in Newvatican, several witnesses under oath have already fingered Bergoglio himself as the "mastermind" behind the fraud, which involved embezzlement and money-laundering. De Franssu says that two of Bergoglio's high officials offered him "protection" to approve the fraudulent deal, which ended up enriching Newchurch and its officials. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]

Traditional Catholics, the number of high officials reporting to Francis-Bergoglio involved in this embezzlement is stunning. The corruption in Newchurch has reached heights under the apostate Newpope never seen before, Bergoglio himself has been fingered in trial testimony as being the "mastermind" behind the fraud. With the trial being held in Newvatican and under the control of the Bergoglio, who has already been called out for attempting to influence prosecutors, Bergoglio's actions will almost certainly be swept under the rug, as his other malfeasance has been. There is no justice in Newvatican.

A Reader Asks: "Which Mysteries of the Rosary Should I Meditate upon during Lent?
Of Course I Shall Not Be Praying the Novus Ordo 'Luminous' Mysteries!"

From: Carolyn
Septem Psalmi Davidis Poenitentiales

One of the Most Appropriate
Traditional Lenten Devotions
Is the Seven Penitential Psalms
Other Traditional Lenten Devotions Are
The Four Approved Litanies of the Church
And the Passion of Christ
In the Holy Gospels of St. Matthew
St. Mark, St. Luke, and St. John
All of These Devotions Are More Ancient
Than the Dominican Rosary

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

Which Mysteries of the Rosary should I meditate upon during Lent? Of course, I shall not be meditating upon the Novus Ordo "Luminous" Mysteries, only the Joyful, Glorious, and Sorrowful Mysteries.


You are correct. No true Catholic prays the so-called "Luminous" Mysteries. This is a New Age concoction of the heretic Newpope JPII-Wojtyla in 2002 to undercut the true Catholic Church. What now has become the Rosary was originally a substitute for the traditional Catholic Divine Office when priests in the Middle Ages were travelling and did not have a printed Breviarium Romanum to take with them. The 150 Aves substituted for the 150 Psalms of the Old Testament Psalter, which are prayed in the Divine Office over the course of a week. 200 Aves is just another concoction of the Newchurch heretics, including the Newpopes after the Vatican II Anti-council, who wish to destroy the Catholic Church:

The custom is that the Sorrowful Mysteries are meditated upon during the Sundays of Lent. For the weekdays, you can use the usual distribution, or use the Sorrowful Mysteries for all days in Lent:

  • The Glorious Mysteries on Wednesday and Saturday
  • The Sorrowful Mysteries on Tuesday and Friday
  • The Glorious Mysteries" on Wednesday and Saturday
  • Remember that the heart of the Rosary is not the Aves, but the meditations. Unfortunately, most Catholics mumble through the Aves and almost skip right over the mediations. Remember, too, that many Saints have urged laypeople to pray the Rosary in Latin. Not only is it the unifying language of prayer of the Church, but the use of a tongue that is less familiar to many of them forestalls the temptation to mumble through in a vulgar tongue.

    1o Annunciatio: B. Maria Virgo ab Angelo salutatur. (ad amorem humilitatis)
    2o Visitatio: B. Maria Virgo Elisabeth visitat. (ad caritatem proximi)
    3o Nativitas: Iesus Christus in Bethlehem nascitur. (ad animum paupertatis)
    4o Presentatio: Iesus infans in templo prĉsentatur. (ad virtutem obedientae)
    5o Inventio Christi in Templo: Iesus puer in templo inter doctores invenitur. (ad virtutem pietatis)

    1o Agonia in Hortu: Iesus Christus, in horto orans, sanguinem sudat. (ad veram contritionem)
    2o Flagellatio ad Pilam: Iesus Christus ad columnam flagellis cĉditur. (ad virtutem puritatis)
    3o Coronatio Spinis: Iesus Christus spinis coronatur. (ad fortitudinem moralem)
    4o Baiulatio Crucus: Iesus Christus, morte condemnatus, Calvariĉ locum, crucem baiulans petit. (ad virtutem patientiae)
    5o Crucifixio Morsque de Iesu: Iesus Christus, cruci affixus, coram Matre sua moritur. (ad perseverantiam finalem)

    1o Resurrectio: Resurrectio Iesu Christi. (ad virtutem fidei)
    2o Ascensio: Ascensio Iesu Christi. (ad virtutem spei)
    3o Descensus Spiritus Sancti: Spiritus Sancti supra beatam Mariam Virginem et discipulos descensus. (ad amorem Dei)
    4o Assumptio Mariae in Coelum: Assumptio beatae Mariĉ Virginis in cĉlum. (ad devotionem Mariae)
    5o Coronatio Maria in coelo: Beatae Mariae Virginis coronatio itemque Angelorum et Sanctorum gloria. (ad beatitudinem aeternam)

    Furthermore, don't forget other traditional penitential devotions that may appropriately be substituted for the Rosary during Lent. These devotions are all more ancient than the Rosary. Among these devotions the best is the Seven Penitential Psalms (Septem Psalmi Poenitentiales). These should be found in the appendix of your traditional handmissal or in your Bible. (The following numbers are the traditional numbers in the Latin Vulgate and the Douay-Rheims and Confraternity Versions, not the Protestant King James Version and "modernized" Newchurch versions):

    Psalm 6: Ne reminiscaris
    Psalm 31: Beati quorum
    Psalm 37: Domine, ne in furore
    Psalm 50: Miserere
    Psalm 101: Domine, exaudi
    Psalm 129: De profundis
    Psalm 142: Domine, exaudi

    Also appropriate for Lent are the Approved Litanies of the Church. These should be found in the appendix of your traditional handmissal:

    Litaniae Sanctorum (Litany of the Saints)
    Litaniae Sanctissimi Nominis Iesu (Litany of the Most Holy Name of Jesus)
    Litaniae Lauretanae Beatae Mariae Virginis (Litany of the Blessed Virgin Mary of Loreto)
    Litaniae Sancti Ioseph (Litany of St. Joseph)

    Of course, the Passion of Christ in the four Holy Gospels, of St. Matthew, St. Mark, St. Luke, and St. John, should be at the heart of your Lenten devotions. These will be found in your traditional handmissal under Palm Sunday, Tuesday of Holy Week, Wednesday of Holy Week, and Good Friday.

    "Fr. Bozo" Simulates an Official "Clown Mess," as These Messes Grow Worldwide
    The Apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio Does Nothing to Stop Them, nor Did Benedict-Ratzinger

    From: The TRADITIO Fathers
    Clown Mess

    Under the Apostate Newpopes
    Benedict-Ratzinger and Francis-Bergoglio
    "Clown Messes" and Other Idiocies
    Have Spread Worldwide
    As a Result More and More Newchurchers
    Every Day
    Are Deregistering and Walking Out
    The Latest Figures from the Pew Research Center
    Show that Attendance at Newchurch Messes
    Have Sunk to a New Low, in the Single Digits
    Newchurch Is Ever More Rapidly Dying
    Before the Eyes of the World
    And It Doesn't Take a Clown to See It!

    The Newchurch of the New Order is not only not Catholic, it is a joke. Those who have remained with the fake Newchurch, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church, and its apostate leaders, currently Francis-Bergoglio, are looking more and more like the fools that they have been since the Vatican II Anti-council. No wonder that the latest figures from the respected Pew Research Center show that attendance at the fake (invalid) Newchurch Messes have sunk to a new low, in the single digits. Newchurch is ever more rapidly dying before the eyes of the world, and it doesn't take a clown to see it!

    On February 18, 2023, presbyter Michael Vehlken, aka "Fr. Bozo," in the Munster, Germany, Newdiocese simulated an officially-recognized "Clown Mess," as it was funded by the German Kirchensteuer, the German church tax that all Newchurchers must pay, approximately ten per cent of their income. Fr. Bozo was assisted by a Newchurch Clown Deacon, who preached the "homily," and altar girls "vested" in satanic witch hats with pointed feline ears. The "sacred music" for the Mess was punk rock. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by The News.]

    As a result of such idiocies Newchurchers are deserting Newchurch in ever-increasing numbers, lining up at city halls to deregister from Newchurch, taking a page from Howard Beale in Paddy Chayevsky's 1976 play Network, who threw open the window of his office in a hospital run by a group of idiots and screamed out:

    I'm as mad as Hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore. I want you to get up right now, sit up, go to your windows, open them and stick your head out and yell -- "I'm as mad as hell and I'm not going to take this anymore!" Things have got to change. But first, you've gotta get mad! You've got to say, "I'm as mad as hell, and I'm not going to take this anymore!"

    Traditional Catholics, it is ironic that such beyond-sacrilegious fake Messes have been declared by Benedict-Ratzinger and Francis-Bergoglio to be the "Ordinary Mess" of Newchurch, whereas the New Latin Mess of 1962 (which is most certainly not the Traditional Latin Mass) is consuming Bergoglio's time, attention, and hatred. There is something very sick about all of this, and perhaps the sickest thing about it is the clueless Newchurchers who still support apostate Newpopes and a Newchurch religion that would make a clown laugh and a pig look clean.

    Rules Francis-Bergoglio: I Said No to the New Latin Mess of 1962, and I Meant It!
    Now He Has Delegated His Newpapal Power to Newcardinal Roche to Impose the Ban

    From: Petrus Romanus, The TRADITIO Network's Roman Correspondent
    Francis-Bergoglio & Arthur Roche

    Francis-Bergoglio Is Reportedly "Mad as Hell"
    At Those Newbishops Who Have Tried to Thwart His Will
    By Granting Illegal "Exceptions" to His Widespread Ban
    On the New Latin Mess of 1962
    Which Is Not the Traditional Latin Mess
    But a Stepping Stone Used by the Vatican II Anti-council
    To Institute the Full-blown Invalid (Fake)
    New Order Mess of 1969

    Newvatican on February 20, 2023, revealed that Francis-Bergoglio met with Newcardinal Arthur Roche, Prefect of the Dicastery for Divine [Sic] Worship. Bergoglio wasted no time in publishing, the very next day, a rescript (official directive) that he had delegated his full Newpapal authority to that Dicastery to impose strict restrictions on the use of the New Latin Mess of 1962 per Bergoglio's decree of July 16, 2021, entitled "Traditionis custodes," and the Dicastery's Responsa of November 18, 2022. The New Latin Mess of 1962 is most certainly not the Traditional Latin Mass.

    Bergoglio was reportedly "mad as Hell" that some Newbishops were trying to do an end run around his decree by illegally granting "exceptions" to the decree. Bergoglio has made it clear his decree is to be strictly enforced and that, inter alia, no New Latin Mess is to be simulated in a Newparish church, and no new presbyters are permitted to use this Mess. He clearly pontificated that Newbishops have no power under Newcanon Law to grant "exceptions" to his decree. In exceptional cases, of which Newrome stated that it will permit very few, in libraries, community halls, office buildings, and the like, might rarely be used, but in no case Newparish churches. The prohibition against the use of Newparish churches applies also to the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), the Institute of Christ the King (ICR), and other former "indult" societies, which have been illegally using Newparish churches.

    Bergoglio is still considering the release of an Apostolic Constitution, the highest form of legislation in Newchurch, trumping inferior documents like a Motu Proprio, to proclaim that the New Latin Mass is essentially prohibited, likely to include Sundays. April 3, 2023, the 54th anniversary of the institution of the invalid (fake) Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Order Mess by "Unsaint" Newpope Paul VI-Montini, has been suggested as the release date for this document. Such a document would further limit to practically nothing the New Latin Mass of 1962. The former "indult" groups (FSSP, ICR, etc.) would likely be severely restricted through the Dictastery for Consecrated Life, headed by Bergoglio's Modernist appointee, Newcardinal Braz de Avis.

    More and more the question is being asked: when will the Newcon and pseudo-traditionalist Newchurchers come to their senses, embrace the Traditional Latin Mass (1950), and realize that Newchurch is most certainly not the Catholic Church? As long as these Newchurchers stick their head in the sewer and remain attached to the apostate Newpopes, they will remain Newchurch's primary target, especially owing to the Great Synod that is coming this October 2023 and is slated to make major changes in Newchurch doctrines, such as the Protestant Anglican/Episcopalians have in permitting even priestess and homosexual "bishops." The other shoe is about to drop, and it will be the doctrinal shoe.


    Neocons and Pseudo-traditionalists just Don't Get It
    Newchurch's 2024-2025 "National Eucharistic [Sic] Revival" Is Doomed to Failure

    From: The TRADITIO Fathers

    Newchurch's "National Eucharistic [Sic] Revival
    Makes Newchurchers Look Like Evangelicals
    With Their Hands up Like Those Possessed
    A Pew Research Study Indicates
    That Seven out of Ten Newchurchers
    Don't even Believe in the Novus Ordo "Eucharist"
    Yet Newchurch Will Pilfer Millions from the Collection Plate
    To Sponsor a Fruitless Madison-Avenue Advertising Campaign

    The Newchurch of the New Order is panicked. Its numbers and donations are tanking. So it has decided to stage multi-million-dollar "National Eucharistic Revival" in 2024-25. Some Neocon Newchurchers in the United States have suggested a four-point plan to save Newchurch: [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic Citizens of Illinois.]

    1. Return the tabernacle with the fake (invalid) Novus Ordo cookies and Kool-Aid to the middle of the New Order "dinner table."
    2. Abolish handing out the fake Novus Ordo cookies and Kool-Aid into Newchurchers' filthy hands.
    3. Eliminate "extraordinary ministers and ministresses" of the fake Novus Ordo cookies and Kool-Aid.
    4. Require that Newchurchers munch the Novus Ordo cookie and swill the Novus Ordo Kool-Aid while kneeling.

    This plan is doomed to failure. A 2020 Pew Research Study asked Newchurchers whether they believe in the New Order "eucharist," 70 per cent said no. Newchurch will once again be pilfering from the collection plate to blow its wad on a worthless Madison-Avenue advertising campaign. The Newchurch leaders are merely rearranging deck chairs on the Titanic of the Newchurch of the New Order . The guts of the problem are that:

    1. Newchurch no longer has priests because of its dumping the Sacrament of Holy Orders and replacing it with the Protestantized "New Ordinal" of 1968, which merely "installs presbyters" like Protestant ministers, who have no Sacramental powers.
    2. Newchurch no longer has a Mass, having substituted the fake (invalid) "New Mess" of 1969, which is, as the Vatican II Anti-council leaders openly admitted, based upon Protestant "worship services" with some Jewish prayers thrown in. Even the "New Latin Mess" of 1962 (merely a corrupted form of the Traditional Latin Mass) was meant, as its Chief Architect Hannibal Bugnini admitted, to be a very temporary stepping stone to the full-blown "New Mess" and then to be abolished, just as the apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio later did with his decree "Traditionis custodes" of 2021. Even so, the New Latin Mess of 1962, simulated as it is by unordained presbyters, is just as invalid as the full-blown "New Mess."

    Traditional Catholics, Newchurch is most certainly not the Catholic Church, any more than Martin Luther's church is the Catholic Church, even though Martin Luther called it Catholic, just as Newchurch calls itself Catholic, with just as much lack of veracity as Luther. True Catholics have by now seen just how fake Newchurch is and have gotten out to one of those sites independent of the Newchurch that preserve the Traditional Latin Mass (1950, before the corruptions) and the Traditional Latin Sacraments, along with traditional Catholic doctrine and morality.

    Another Newchurch Cover-up: A Los Angeles Newbishop Murdered?
    Local Sources Indicate that It Was a Drug Deal Gone Bad or a Paedophile Crime against an Illegal Alien Child

    From: The TRADITIO Fathers
    David O'Connell's House

    Police Are Investigating Newbishop David O'Connell's
    Demise in His Private House in Los Angeles County, California
    Originally, His Death Was Attributed to a Heart Attack
    But Two Days Later the Police Were Announcing
    That He Had Been Shot, Probably Murdered
    Because the Bullet Hole in His Body Could Not Be Ignored
    A Local Source Indicates that This Was a Case
    Of the Usual Newchurch Cover-up of a Drug Deal Gone Bad
    Or of a Paedophile Crime against an Illegal Alien Child
    Whom the Newbishop Was Supposed to be "Protecting"

    On February 18, 2023, police were called to a house in Los Angeles County, California, where they found Auxiliary Newbishop David O'Connell dead. Initial reports indicated the he had died of a heart attack, but rumors persisted that he had been shot. Later, the house turned out to be O'Connell's private residence. By February 20, the police were admitting that O'Connell had died of a gunshot wound in the torso, probably murdered. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by CBS News.]

    But the TRADTIIO Network received a report from a reliable local source that paints a different picture:

    The Newarchdiocese of Los Angeles has been thwarted by local law enforcement over the execution of Newbishop David O'Connell. The Newarchdiocese Chancery Office originally hoped to report that O'Connell died "peacefully" in his sleep, but that version was thwarted by the report of his homicide. So, a compromise was made: it was reported he was shot in the torso. Yet reliable sources from retired law enforcement here in Los Angeles say that he was shot in the mouth "execution style." Current speculation is that this was a drug deal gone bad or -- and this is more likely -- tied to the abuse of an illegal alien minor whom he was supposed to be "protecting."

    Traditional Catholics, normally we would give the benefit of the doubt to the maxim, "De mortuis nil nisi bonum" But if the local source is correct, this could be yet another of those well-known cases where, under the guise of "charity," a Newbishop has been caught in paedophile crimes at his own house, and Newchurch has tried to cover up the truth. At this point a definitive determination cannot be made, but we'd be willing to bet that Francis-Bergoglio doesn't care to know the truth and will not investigate the matter. Let us hope that the Los Angeles secular authorities do care and do honestly investigate the truth.


    The true Catholic starts off Lent right by making a little extra effort to assist at Holy Mass on Ash Wednesday and receive the Blessed Ashes. Let's face it. Most days we put ourselves first. We put our own convenience first. Although we claim to be Christians and Catholics, we think very little about God. Ash Wednesday gives us an opportunity to practice our beliefs, to put God first. If that involves a little inconvenience to ourselves to start off the penitential season of Lent right this year, so be it.
    We will worship the God we profess at the sacred Traditional Catholic Latin Rite of Ash Wednesday, not in some "modernized," knock-off version that you may see reported around you this day, but in their untouched, traditional form. Ash Wednesday service begins with the chanting of the ninth hour, the Hour of None, of the traditional Catholic Divine Office. None is followed by the traditional Catholic rite of the Blessing of the Ashes, and then the imposition of the Blessed Ashes upon us. The rite concludes in the most appropriate way, the celebration of the fully-traditional (1950) Traditional Latin Mass for this special day, which initiates the forty days of the penitential season of Lent.

    Francis-Bergoglio Makes a Disappointing Announcement for Neocons and Pseudo-traditionalists:
    I Am Going to Be [New]pope for Life; I'm Not Breaking Tradition and Abdicating Early Like Benedict-Ratzinger!

    From: The TRADITIO Fathers

    The Apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio
    Foils His Opposition
    Amongst the Cowardly Neocons
    And Pseudo-traditionalists Who Have Remained
    In the Newchurch of the New Order
    Which Is Most Certainly Not
    The Catholic Church
    They Were Hoping that He Would Abdicate
    Like His Precedessor Benedict-Ratzinger
    But He Stated that He Himself Is In for Life
    And Has Appointed the Majority of Newcardinals
    To Ensure that His Leftist/Modernist Policies
    Will Continue in Newchurch after His Death

    Those Neocon Newchurchers and pseudo-traditionalists who were hoping that Bergoglio would soon bail out and abdicate like the former Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger were crestfallen when they heard Bergoglio announce that he intends to remain Newpope ad vitam. Ratzinger abdicated because his secret drug habit had finally overwhelmed him, and Bergoglio intimated in his February 2, 2023, announcement that Ratzinger set a very bad example by abdicating from his post as head of the Newchurch of the New Order. "It [abdication] didn't cross my mind," Bergoglio stated.

    The Neocon and pseudo-traditionalist Newchurchers are too cowardly to leave the apostate Newchurch, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church, but they have been secretly hoping that Bergoglio would follow Ratzinger's lead and abdicate early. He has made it clear that he will not. Ratzinger lived almost to 96. Bergoglio has 10 years to go to reach that mark. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

    Traditional Catholics, the likelihood is that the next Newpope of Newchurch will be even worse than Ratzinger and Bergoglio, not better. Bergoglio has by now appointed the majority of Newcardinals in order that they will elect a successor that will advance Bergoglio's apostasy to the next level, accelerated by the Great Synod on Synodality in October 2023, which will radically change once again the nature of Newchurch, now to an openly pagan organization.

    Francis-Bergoglio's Bosom Buddy Newcardinal Blase Cupich Is at It Again
    He Plans to Sell an Historic Traditional Catholic Church to a Group of Pornographers

    From: The TRADITIO Fathers
    St. Adelbert's Church

    Francis-Bergoglio's Henchman Blase Cupich
    Whom He Appointed as a Newcardinal
    In 2014 at His First Consistory
    Is Well along in His Plans
    To Sell the Historical Traditional Catholic Church
    Of St. Adelbert in Chicago, Illinois
    To an Organization that Uses Its Venues
    To Sponsor Homosexual "Orgies"
    And Pornographic Music Videos

    If Newcardinal Blase Cupich, of Chicago, Illinois, has his way, St. Adelbert's traditional Catholic church will be sold to pornographers to raise money to pay off for the Newarchdiocese's sex crimes against children. Cupich already shuttered the church in 2019. The historic traditional church of breathtaking classical beauty was dedicated in 1914 and built in the Roman basilica style after the 3rd/4th-century Archbasilica of St. Paul outside the Walls.

    Cupich's plans are well underway to sell St. Adelbert's to an organization, Temple House, that that has sponsored homosexual raves, frequently described as "orgies." This organization has already purchased a former synagogue to stage such events. The organization has also used its properties as venues to film pornographic music videos. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]

    Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio made the corrupt Blase Cupich into one of his Newcardinals in the first consistory after the Third Paedophile Newpope Bergoglio was elected Newpope of the Newchurch of the New Order. Not only are the Newpopes apostates from the Catholic Church, but they are cultural barbarians as well, accomplices in the destruction of some of the world's most beautiful traditional Catholic churches.

    A Reader Asks: "Is an 'Easter Midnight Mass' Legitimate
    Or Is This Just Another Corruption Introduced by the Newchurch of the New Order?"

    From: Anthony
    Holy Saturday

    The Abbreviated First Mass of Easter
    Which Is Actually the Conclusion
    Of the Morning Traditional Holy Saturday Rites
    Traditionally Begins at Noon on Holy Saturday
    That Is Why the Abstinence from Fleshmeat
    And the Lenten Fast
    Ends at Noon on Holy Saturday

    Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

    With Easter not far away, the question always comes up about the legitimacy of "Easter Midnight Mass." Moreover, the people who practice this novelty claim that the Lenten fast ends after that "Easter Midnight Mass." None of that sounds very traditional to me. My 1945 traditional Catholic handmissal states that the Lenten fast ends at noon on Holy Saturday. Can you make any sense of this for me and others who are confused about what the real traditional practice is?


    Your 1945 traditional Catholic handmissal is correct. The Protestantizing corruptions that led to the invalid (fake) New Order Mess of 1969 actually began in 1950 with the corruption of the Easter service, when a novel "Easter Midnight Mass" was introduced by Hannibal Bugnini, the Freemason presbyter who went on to destroy the very ancient traditional Holy Week in 1956, bowdlerize the Traditional Latin Mass further into a shadow of its former self in 1960-1962, and then dropped the axe of the "New Mess" in 1969.

    Traditionally, the abbreviated First Mass of Easter, which is actually the conclusion of the traditional morning Holy Saturday rites, begins at noon on Holy Saturday. That is why the abstinence from fleshmeat and the Lenten fast ends at noon on Holy Saturday.

    True Catholics really must abandon entirely the Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church, and find a fully Traditional Latin Mass as before the corruptions starting in 1950. These included the destruction of the very ancient traditional Holy Week in 1956. To find such a fully Traditional Latin Mass ahd Holy Week rites, consult the Official Traditional Catholic Directory, referenced above.

    A New Pew Research Study Shows Why Newchurch Is Dying
    Newchurch Parents Don't Care What Religion, if Any, Their Children Practice

    From: The TRADITIO Fathers
    Francis-Bergoglio Unhappy

    Francis-Bergoglio Heard the News
    And He's Depressed
    The Pew Reseach Center Released Its Study
    Indicating Why Newchurch Is Dying
    The Most Salient Finding
    Is that Two out of Three Newchurch Parents
    Don't Consider It "Very Important"
    What Religion, if Any
    Their Children Practice

    On February 6, 2023, the respected Pew Research Center, headquartered in Washington, D.C., released an enlightening new study showing why the Newchurch of the New Order is dying. The most salient finding is that two out of three Newchurch parents don't consider it "extremely or very important" what religion, if any, their children practice. We already know from previous Pew Studies that Newchurch parents don't care what relgion, if any, they themselves practice, so, even if they wanted to, how could they pass down their religion, if any, to their children?

    It seems that Newchurch parents figure that if their children want to be Buddhists or Hindus or Sikhs or other pagans, that's perfectly acceptable. The Pew study just gives more evidence that Newchurch is merely a fake religion, whose own members don't even care about it. That finding also explains why Newchurch attendance is sinking into single digits and why few Newchurch parents bother to initiate "initiate" (formerly, baptize) their children. Moreover, they themselves in overwhelming percentages are not married or buried in Newchurch. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Pew Research Center.]

    Traditional Catholics, as the apostate Newchurch of the New Order crumbles from within because doctrinal heresy and moral corruption, the Evangelicals are doing just fine. 70 per cent of Evangelicals, who are drawing far more attendance these days, consider it very important for their children to hold the same Evangelical religious beliefs as their parents, and they take decisive steps in their children's upbringing to ensure that they remain Christians and don't sink into secular paganism as adults.

    Newchurch's "New Mess" Is Once Again Proven to Be No More than a Joke
    As Newchurch Presbyters Simulate the Mess in American Football Jerseys

    From: The TRADITIO Fathers
    Joe Pham

    Presbyter "Joe" Pham
    Is Not the Only One to Be Simulating
    The Fake (Invalid) Newchurch Mess
    "Vested" in a Football Jersey on American Superbowl Sunday
    Instead of Wearing the Equally Ridiculous "Albo-Chasubo"
    That Newchurch Uses
    After 1964 the Newchurch of the New Order
    Which Is Most Certainly Not the Catholic Church
    Lost the Validity of Its Sacraments
    And Is Much Worse Now even than the Protestant Heretics

    Newchurch condemns itself out of its own actions. The "Mess" that Newchurch uses since 1969 is certainly not a Catholic Mass, but a joke. On February 12, 2023, which is Superbowl Sunday in the United States, presbyter Joseph Pham, of Mullica Hill, New Jersey, "vested" in a football jersey on American Superbowl Sunday instead of the already-ridiculous New Order "albo-chasubo" that Newchurch uses, resembling what passes for "high" Protestant garb, to simulate the fake (invalid) New Order Proestant-Masonic-Pagan Mess.

    Nor is presbyter Pham the only one in Newchurch to have committed this sacrilege. The Newchurchers again and again tell us by their actions and by their words that they don't believe in the Catholic Faith. Instead, blasphemy, idolatry, and sacrilege have been embedded in the Newchurch of the New Order from its founding on November, 21, 1964. Our Lord said: "By their fruits you shall know them" (Matthew 7:16/DRV). The Newchurchers don't even believe their own Protestant/Pagan propaganda. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]

    But what do we now know beyond doubt about Newchurch and its fake Mess and "sacraments"?

    1. Newchurch does not have a valid Mass. It doesn't really have a Mass at all, but at best an heretical Protestant service.
    2. Newchurch's Messes (including the New Latin Messes of 1962) are not celebrated by Catholic priests, but simulated by unordained presbyters, who have been merely "installed" like Protestant ministers under the invalid (fake) Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968.
    3. All of Newchurch's "sacraments" were corrupted between 1968 and 1973 into invalid forms after the fashion of the Protestant heretics. No Newchurch "sacraments" (or for that matter, sacramentals, including holy water, blessings of rosaries, scapulars, etc.) are valid. Possibly some "initiations" (formerly baptisms) administered before about the year 2000 may yet have had valid form and intention, but otherwise the "initiation" is merely equivalent to joining a fraternity or the Freemasons. Newchurch marriages are likely valid because in traditional Catholic theology the parties marry themselves; whereas the minister is only an official witness.
    4. Newchurch lost the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist because of invalid form (text), invalid intention, and invalid matter. It has merely, like the Protestant heretics, cookies and Kool-Aid

    Traditional Catholics, the facts are too obvious to deny. Newchurch is not serious, but populated by silly people, from the top on down, who have lost the Catholic Faith. For further information, click on the TRADITIO Network's Novus Ordo Service Photo Gallery. It most certainly is not the morally good, doctrinally true, and historically beautiful real Catholic Church of two millennia.

    An Independent Commission Reports that Newchurch Presbyters Raped and Sodomized Children
    By the Thousands in Portugal, Where the Fatima Shrine Is Located

    From: The TRADITIO Fathers
    New Fatima Shrine

    The New "Tennis Racket" Shrine
    That Newchurch Built on the Site in Fatima, Portugal
    Where Many Believe
    There Was a Marian Apparition in 1917
    Now It Has Come out that Newchurch Presbyters
    Have Been Raping, Sodomizing
    And Otherwise Sexually Assaulting Children
    An Independent Report Paints a "Grim Picture"
    Of Newchurch Crimes Involving 4,815 Child Victims

    Like Ireland and Poland, Portugal used to be one of the most Catholic countries on the face of the earth. After all, it boasts the area of Fatima, which many believe (but it is not Catholic doctrine, as no private revelation is a matter of the Faith) was the site of a Marian apparition. But all that was before the Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church, took over as "institutional" Church in place of the Catholic Church on November 21, 1964, in a decree of the Vatican II Anti-council.

    Now, in a February 13, 2023, independent Commission report, we learn that Newchurch presbyters have been raping, sodomizing, and otherwise sexually assaulting literally thousands children in Portugal, where the Fatima shrine is located, for decades, specifically since the advent of Newchurch. The report paints a "grim picture" of Newchurch crimes. The independent Commission's report validated 512 testimonies involving 4,815 child victims. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]

    Traditional Catholics, the chilling reality is that these crimes were rampant under "Unsaint" Paul VI-Montini, "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtya, and "Probably-to-Be-Unsaint" Benedict-Ratzinger and are still widespread under the current Newpope of the New Order sect, Francis-Bergoglio, who refuses to discipline the criminals, who report to him. Fortunately, the nations of the world have done a much better job meting out God's justice than the men who claim to be (New)popes. Many of the filthy clergy of Newchurch have been thrown into prison for life. In view of the death penalty imposed by Our Lord for such criminals (Matthew 18:6), these Newpopes may think that they can escape God's wrath in this world, but likely death in Hell awaits them, "where "there shall be the weeping and gnashing of teeth" (Luke 13:28/DRV).

    Francis-Bergoglio's Latest Newcardinal Appointee, a Homophiliac Supporter
    Declares That His Newdiocese Is Already on the Verge of Declaring Bankruptcy

    Partners in Paedophile Crime Support
    Francis-Bergoglio, the Third Paedophile Newpope
    And His Latest Newcardinal, Roger McElroy
    Less than Six Months after His Elevation to Newcardinal
    McElroy Has Announced that His Newdiocese
    Is on the Verge of Declaring Bankruptcy
    Because of Lawsuits from 400 Child Victims
    Of San Diego, California, Presbyters
    Yet McElroy Recently Declared that Practicing Sodomites
    Must Be Admitted to the Novus Ordo Cookie and Kool-Aid
    Because "They Can't Help Themselves"

    Well, that didn't take long. The apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio appointed in his latest consistory, on August 27, 2022, Robert McElroy, the Newbishop of San Diego, California, to be a Newcardinal, passing up the far more qualified and respected conservative Newarchbishop of adjoining Los Angeles, Jose Gomez, President of the U.S. Conference of Catholic [New]bishops. The Newarchbishop of Los Angeles is traditionally created a Newcardinal, but Bergoglio spits on tradition. And San Diego is not even a Newcarchdiocese.

    McElroy proceeded to besmirch himself in a January 24, 2023, article for the flaming Leftist Newjesuit magazine America by advocating giving the fake (invalid) Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid to unrepentant, practicing homosexuals, purportedly because "they can't help themselves from committing one of the Four Biblical Sins that Cry out to Heaven for Retribution.

    It didn't take long for McElroy to crash and burn. On February 12 2023, he announced that the San Diego Newdiocese, which he had managed since 2015, when Bergoglio appointed him, was so badly off that he was about to declare bankruptcy. McElroy announced that because of continuing sex crimes against children in his Newdiocese, he has to pay the price of "staggering legal costs" to recompense the child victims. 400 such lawsuits are now pending against McElroy.

    Meanwhile, the child victims are calling denouncing McElroy as "slapping them in the face" for using the manoeuver of bankruptcy to cheat them out of their just compensation. The Newdiocese was already forced in 2007 to pay some 200,000,000 USD for 144 other lawsuits by raped, sodomized, and otherwise sexually assaulted child victims. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by ABC News San Diego.]

    Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio can sure pick them. The Newbishops and Newcardinals whom he has appointed have been called out for being some of the most criminal ilk, even more so than the ones that the Second Paedophile Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger, and the First Paedophile Newpope JPII-Wojtyla appointed, if that were possible. Yet the hundreds of millions of USD that Bergoglio has embezzled to create his propaganda empire continues to portray the Third Paedophile Newpope as some kind of saint is not doing the trick. The latest studies show that many Newchurch refused to give him a farthing. In fact, many Newchurchers have abandoned him and his Newchurch of the New Order, so that Newchurch attendance in many places has tanked into single digits.

    Presbyter Anthony Bas Committed the "Mortal Sin"
    Of Simulating the Vatican II "New Mess" of 1969

    Of Course, the "New Mess" Is Fake (Invalid)
    So You Could Simulate It Standing on Your Head
    And It Would Make No Difference
    Those Present Would Still Be at Least Material Heretics
    Devoid of Any Grace from Participating in the Phony Service

    Presbyer Anthony Bas didn't even dare to simulate the New Latin Mess of 1962. He was perpetrating Newchurch's New Order Mess of 1969, but he simulated it in the traditional posture ad orientem, i.e., facing away from the congregation. As a result, Francis-Bergoglio's bulldog and bosom buddy on February 8, 2023, took a bite out of poor presbyter Bas and publicly denounced him a Newcanonic criminal.

    That is what happens when you deviate from Bergoglio's dictatorship even one iota. Of course, the "New Mess" of 1969 is fake (invalid), so you could simulate it standing on your head, and it would make no difference. It is totally incapable of bestowing any grace on those present, but actually makes at least material heretics of them, whether they know it or not. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]

    Traditional Catholics, presbyter Bas took the wrong path. Even now he has chosen to bend the knee to the apostate Newcardinal Cupich and the apostate Newpope Bergoglio. If Bas had done the right thing, he would long ago have gotten out of the apostate Newchurch of the New Order, with its heretic Newpopes and Newcardinals. Those presbyters who have done so have reported to us how relieved they now feel, how much lighter their consciences are, now that they have gone independent from Newchurch, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church. One even wrote to us: "Now I can sleep at night!"

    Simple Feast

    Newchurch's Sister Church, the Protestant Anglican/Episcopalian Church
    Moves to "Marry" Sodomites and Lesbians, and More Traditionalist Breakaways

    From: The TRADITIO Fathers
    What Catholics seem to have forgotten in the commercialism of this Martyr's feastday is that February 14 is not Valentine's Day -- it is Saint Valentine's Day. Its origins are not a day dedicated to mere sentimentalism, but to love of God -- to the death. The Roman priest Valentine was imprisoned for courageously professing his Christian Faith, and helping other Christians to do so, during the persecutions of the Roman emperor Claudius Gothicus about the year 269. St. Valentine, who sent letters of encouragement ("valentines") in the Faith from his prison cell, was eventually martyred by beating and beheading. Far from representing mere sentimentalism, the red color and the hearts that are so prevalent this day recall the fact that St. Valentine gave his body's red heart and his life's red blood as a Martyr for his Catholic Faith. As St. Augustine writes in the Traditional Catholic Divine Office for this day: (Sermo 44 de Sanctis): "In cuius glorioso agone duo nobis praecipue consideranda sunt: indurata videlicet tortoris saevitia, et Martyris invicta patienitia" [In whose glorious agony two things must especially be considered by us: namely, the hardened brutality of his torture, and the unconquered patience of the Martyr]. Instead of sentimentality on this day, the true Catholic should be recalling how much blood the millions of courageous Catholic Martyrs shed to purchase that precious Faith for us -- a faith that today is being persecuted not only by the government, but by the fake Newchurch of the New Order -- which is most certainly not the Catholic Church.

    And All Hell Has Broken Lose
    As It Has in the Vatican II Anti-council's Newchurch

    As the history of the Newchurch of the New Order has shown, since its founding on November 21, 1964, at the Vatican II Anti-council: "As the Anglican/Episcopalians go, so goes the Newchurch of the New Order." On February 9, 2023, the Anglican/Episcopalian sect voted to "bless" sodomite "marriages," and all Hell has broken loose. The immediate result was more breakaways by traditionalist Anglican/Episcopalians, who retorted that their sect had no power to "bless" sinful relationships, a move that "departed from the Apostolic Faith." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

    The Anglican/Episcopalian sect is the midst of a Great Divide, as is the Newchurch of the New Order. Traditionalist Anglican/Episcopalians are fed up with the Leftist infiltration of their sect by radical anti-Christian theology and practices, and they're not taking it anymore. Several traditionalist Anglican/Episcopalian sects have been formed and are drawing increasing numbers of defectors from the "institutional" sect, just as is happening with the Newchurch of the New Order. Reports indicate that now some "institutional" Anglican/Episcopalian churches are now drawing no more than five people to their Leftist services, whereas attendance at traditionalist services is increasing [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

    Traditional Catholics, the Anglican/Episcopalian sect was rent in 2003 in the United States when a man openly practicing sodomy, Gene Robinson, was installed as a "bishop." Currently, there are a number of traditional Anglican/Episcopalian organizations that have broken from the "institutional" sect, just as there are many independent Traditional Roman Catholic organizations. Among the traditionalist Anglican/Episcopalian sects now are the Anglican Catholic Church, the Anglican Church of North America, and the Traditional Anglican Communion.

    New Financial Figures from Post-pandemic Data
    Show that Newchurch Has Lost 16 per cent of Its Revenue
    This Number Is Expected only to Become Worse
    Because of Newchurch's Worsening
    Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust
    Because of Inflation Newparishes Today
    Have 11 per Cent Less Spending Power
    This Declining Condition Explains
    Why Bergoglio Has Found It Necessary
    To Resort to Immoral Expedients Like Embezzlement
    To Sustain His Tottering Apostate Regime

    We are now are getting the post-pandemic data, and it doesn't look good for the Newchurch of the New Order. On February 1, 2023, Newchurch's own Center for Church Management in the Villanova University School of Business issued its first post-pandemic study on Newparish collections and donations in the United States, and it doesn't paint a pretty picture for the future of the Newchurch of the New Order.

    Newchurch collections and donations have dropped by 16 per cent since the pandemic. This number is expected only to become worse because of Newchurch's worsening Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. The study concludes: "This poses a risk to the long-term sustainability of many [New]parishes." Total collections and donations decreased in the major conduits in the Northeast and Midwest. Because of inflation Newparishes today have 11 per cent less spending power. This is what economists call the "money illusion." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]

    Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order is collapsing financially, not to speak of its doctrinal and moral collapse. This declining condition explains why Bergoglio has found it necessary to resort to immoral expedients like embezzlement to sustain his tottering apostate regime, as with his 2014 London Real-estate Fraud. He has thereafter moved to take all Newchurch money into his own hands, through his corrupt Vatican Bank run by the Mafia. Meanwhile, he and his Newcardinals have been converting, i.e., embezzling, monies donated to the poor to support their collapsing Newvatican regime. That shows just how desperate they are.

    Francis-Bergoglio Is Shutting down the Largest New Latin Mess Site in the World

    Has Become the Latest Target
    For Francis-Bergoglio's Pogrom
    Against the New Latin Mess of 1962
    Which Is Most Certainly Not
    The Traditional Latin Mass
    The Frejus-Toulon Newdiocese
    Is the Largest Site for the New Latin Mess
    In the World, Eighteeen Every-Sunday Messes
    These Inquisitions Already End up Destroying
    Their Targets, as Has Already Happened
    With the Shutdown of the Franciscan Friars in Europe
    And the Carmelite Contemplatives in the United States

    Francis-Bergoglio has moved to shut down for good the largest site for the New Latin Mess of 1962 in the world, the small, rural Newdiocese of Frejus-Toulon, France, and its Newbishop Dominique Rey. On a per-capita basis, this Newdiocese simulates the largest number of New Latin Messes anywhere in the world, eighteen every-Sunday Messes.

    On February 7, 2023, according to a Communique from the Newchurch Nunciature in France, "by mandate" (par mandat) of Bergoglio, his Dicastery for [New]bishops has dispatched two Neomonsignori to conduct an Inquisition of Rey and his Newdiocese, which have presented "a number of difficulties" (un certain nombre de difficultés) to Bergoglio. This is Newchurch language for the problem of the New Latin Messes and the impetus for a complete reorganization of the Newdiocese. The history is that when Bergoglio sends his Inquisitors to a Newdiocese that simulates the New Latin Mess, that is the end for that Mess and its supporters. That has already occurred for the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate in Europe and the Carmelite Contemplatives in the United States for being "too traditional." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Dicasterium pro Episcopis.]

    Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio and his enthusiastic agents are ramping up their pogrom against the New Latin Mass of 1962 before issuing the final blow to the Neocon and pseudo-traditionalist Newchurchers in April 2023, when a new Apostolic Constitution is said to be prepared to shut down essentially all such Messes and supporters that remain worldwide. But Traditional Catholics are shedding no tears, as the New Latin Mass is most certainly not the Traditional Latin Mass, but a fraud that was intended to be just a temporary stepping stone to the full-blown heretic Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New Mess" of 1969 that is now being used in Newchurches.

    The New Latin Mess was fabricated by the same Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini who fabricated the "New Mess" of 1969. The 1962 version was only a transitional phase intended to replace the Catholic Faith with a Protestant one after the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965). Bergoglio now wants to move beyond Protestantism altogether in favor of pure Paganism, as with his cults of the Pachamama and Acatama, which are starting in Latin America. Hence new liturgical changes are to follow his revolutionary Synod on Synodality (aka the Vatican III Anti-council), which is to commence October 9, 2023.

    Or New Order Mess of 1969?

    But Francis-Bergoglio Is Raging
    Against Neocon/Pseudo-traditionalists
    Who Are Trying to Do an End Run
    Around His Suppression of the New Latin Mess
    Which Is Not the Traditional Latin Mass
    Both Bergoglio and Benedict-Ratzinger
    Have Made It Clear that This Mess
    Was Merely a Transitional Mess
    To the Invalid (Fake) New Order Mess of 1969
    The New Latin Mess Is Banned from Newparishes
    And Newbishops that Try to Escape the Ban
    Are Being Singled out for Censure by Newrome

    Newbishops around the world are being censured and reversed on permitting New Latin Messes of 1962 in Newparish locations. Such permissions made by Newbishops are illegal, and Newvatican's Dicastery on Divine Worship is even now sending out letters over the signature of is Prefect, Newcardinal Arthur Roche, to Newbishops around the world that they have no authority to permit the New Latin Mess within their Newparishes or to allow new presbyters to use that Mess without explicit permission from Newrome, which is only rarely to be given and only in heavily-investigated individual cases.

    The December 21, 2021, edicts of Newvatican's Dicastery on Divine Worship have decreed in no uncertain terms what was declared by Bergoglio in his July 16, 2021, decree "Traditionis custodes": "The exclusion of the parish church is intended to affirm that the celebration of the Eucharist [sic] according to the previous rite [i.e., the 1962 rite] ... is not part of the ordinary life of the parish church." This edict is now being enforced literally in all cases worldwide. Moreover, presbyters installed after July 16, 2021, are forbidden to use the New Latin Mess without express permission from Newrome, and that permission is to be given only rarely.

    It should always be remembered that the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II "New Latin Mess" of 1962 is not the Traditional Latin Mass, but was merely a transitional Mess leading explicitly to the invalid (fake) Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Order Mess of 1969. It was never to become permanent in Newchurch. That was also the import of Benedict-Ratzinger's 2007 "Summorum pontificum." Ratzinger and Bergoglio were in sync on this point.

    Henceforth the "New Mess" of 1969 is the only recognized Mess of Newchurch, and Bergoglio wants the New Latin Mess extirpated. The Dicastery's edicts also now forbid bination; that is, a presbyter who simulates a New Latin Mess -- in the rare case that this is authorized -- cannot simulate a second Mess on that same day under any circumstances. Nor can he simulate a New Latin Mess if he has already simulated a New Order Mess on the same day.

    Newvatican's Dicastery on Divine Worship has indicated that permission to have the New Latin Mass at a Newparish will only rarely be given, and only after an elaborate application process is followed, if then. Complete statistics must be provided to the Dicastery: number of people involved, number of New Latin Messes, etc. The main requirement is that the presbyters at the Newparish must have a program to wean their Newparishioners away from the New Latin Mess entirely, as it is not the approved Mess of the Newchurch of the New Order, but was only a temporary expedient.

    In the words of the Dicastery's edicts: steps must be documented on how the Newparish has made efforts "to lead the [Newchurch] faithful who are attached to the antecedent liturgy towards the celebration of the liturgy according to the liturgical books reformed by decree of the Second Vatican [Anti-]council," i.e., the invalid (fake) Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Unholy New Order Mess of 1969. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Newvatican's Dicasterium de Cultu Divine et Disciplina Sacramentorum.]

    Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio and his Newvatican are not kidding. The more the Neocon/pseudo-traditionalists try to do an end run around his decrees and edicts to suppress the New Latin Mess, the more Bergoglio lowers the boom on them. The goal of the Newchurch of the New Order is to end all such Messes as soon as possible. They were never really intended by Newchurch to remain. All true Catholics should long ago have gotten out of the Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church, and worked to find a fully Traditional Latin Mass from before the corruptions were introduced starting in 1950.

    Who Needs More Money for His Bankrupted Newvatican
    So He Is Turning the Convent into a Luxury Hotel
    To Enrich His Own Coffers

    Francis-Bergoglio has become is so desperate for money to support his bankrupted Newvatican that he is openly resorting to theft and embezzlement to sustain his regime. His latest predation is against the Poor Clare pseudo-traditional nuns. He seems to have a particular hatred for contemplatives. The Poor Clares were founded by St. Clare of Assisi in 1212. It is the height of irony that Bergoglio took the Newpapal name "Francis."

    The Convent of St. Clare in Ravello, Italy, which has existed since the thirteenth century, was a particular target of Bergoglio because it had financial resources from its many years of existence and from generous donations to its work. The Convent had an associated church, a residence for the nuns, a guesthouse for visitors on retreat, and at one time a school. The nuns were able to sustain their religious works from the proceeds of three local businesses and a hotel in town. The church and other properties on the pricey Amalfi Coast are worth 50,000,000 to 60,000,000 USD. This was too juicy a target for Bergoglio's greed to pass up.

    When Bergoglio announced that he was closing down the convent to build a luxury hotel on the property to enrich his coffers, the Poor Clares told Bergoglio to pound sand; they weren't leaving. Bergoglio, who constantly blathers about "mercy," mercilessly threw the remaining nuns out onto the street, one of whom was 97 years of age, and expelled the nuns from the religious life that they had lived for decades, one of them since 1955.

    Even the Ravello City Council opposed Bergoglio because of the historical and cultural significance of the convent. A former mayor of the city is now heading up a cultural association to continue the fight against the "Dictator" Newpope Bergoglio "to restore truth, justice and dignity to the 'virtuous disobedience' of the nuns." In open rejection of Bergoglio, the association vowed to "vindicate the authenticity of the true [Traditional Catholic] Church," which is not the Newchurch of the New Order run by Bergoglio. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Crux News Agency.]

    Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio may actually have done these nuns a favor. Now they are out of his apostate Newchurch clutches and can life a true religious life as Traditional Roman Catholic nuns without Newchurch interference. This incident, among many others, indicates beyond a doubt that Bergoglio is not only a dictator, but a barbarian, and moreover a hypocrite, who fraudulently preaches mercy, then throws 97-year-old women out of their house onto the street.

    Francis-Bergoglio to Suppress the New Latin Mess of 1962, Effective April 3, 2023
    All Traditional Sacraments, including Holy Orders Are to Be Suppressed, and the FSSP Drastically Curtailed

    From: The TRADITIO Fathers

    Reports Are Coming from Newrome
    That Francis-Bergoglio Is Hopping Mad
    At Newbishops and Presbyters
    Who Have Been Simulating the New Latin Mass
    He Is Reportedly Planning to Issue
    An Apostolic Constitution on April 3, 2023
    That Will Essentially Ban
    The New Latin Mess of 1962 Altogether
    Without Any Exceptions from Newbishops
    Together with All Traditional Sacrtaments
    The Fraternity of St. Peter Is to Be Restricted
    To Operating within the Walls of Its Own Houses

    On February 4, 2023, Newrome was abuzz with the report that Francis-Bergoglio is planning to shut down worldwide the Vatican II Half New Order Mess of 1962 and all associated Sacraments and Sacramentals, effective April 3, 2023. This date is significant because the publication date of the document would be the 54th anniversary of Paul VI-Montini's Apostolic Constitution of April 3,1969, which replaced the traditional Missale Romanum with the invalid New Mess of 1969.

    This is the Mess that was used at the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), as designed by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, the Chief Architect of the "New Mess" of 1969, which is now still used, with further "modernizing" changes, in the Newchurch of the New Order. This is the Mess so beloved of the Neocon Newchurchers and pseudo-traditionalists, but is fake (invalid, null and void) because simulated by Newchurch bishops and presbyters who are no longer ordained, but who since 1968 are no more valid than Protestant ministers.

    The reports indicate that, as we already knew, Bergoglio is hopping mad at Newbishops and presbyters who have tried to circumvent his decree "Traditionis cusodes" of July 16, 2021, which already ordered the suppression of most remaining New Latin Messes around the world. Therefore, intends to suppress the New Latin Mess altogether, together with the traditional Roman Pontifical and Roman Ritual, which contain the rites for traditional Sacraments, ordinations, blessings, and other traditional rites. Francis-Bergoglio's Apostolic Constitution, which trumps the mere Motu Proprio of Benedict-Ratzingzer entitled "Summorum pontificum" of 2007, specified by Benedict-Ratzinger to be of only temporary force, is to abolish the New Latin Mess of 1962 and associated rites as follows: [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by sources in Newrome.]

    1. The New Latin Mess of 1962 is to be abolished at all Newparishes. Newbishops are to be prohibited from giving exemptions to this decree.
    2. The Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) and similar once "indult" organizations are to be prohibited from using Newparish churches. They are to simulate the New Latin Mess only in their own houses that have been approved by Newrome.
    3. Use of the traditional Pontificale Romanum to ordain priests is to abolished. Henceforth, only the New Ordinal of 1968 is to be used, which merely "installs presbyters to preside over the assembly of the people," like Protestant ministers.
    4. The FSSP and similar once "indult" organizations must also use only the (invalid) Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968.
    5. Ordination to the traditional Holy Orders of Porter, Lector, Exorcist, Acolyte, and Subdeacon are to be abolished. Only installations to the Newchurch orders of deacon and presbyter using the fake (invalid) New Ordinal of 1968 are to be permitted
    6. Use of the traditional Rituale Romanum to administer the Sacrament of Baptism is to be prohibited altogether.
    7. Use of the traditional Rituale Romanum to administer the Sacrament of Penance is to be prohibited altogether.
    8. Use of the traditional Rituale Romanum to administer the Sacrament of the Most Holy Eucharist to the sick is to be prohibited altogether.
    9. Use of the traditional Pontificale Romanum to administer the Sacrament of Confirmation is to be prohibited altogether.
    10. Use of the traditional Rituale Romanum to administer the Sacrament of Matrimony is to be prohibited altogether.
    11. Use of the traditional Rituale Romanum to administer the Sacrament of Extreme Unction and Last Rites is to be prohibited altogether.
    12. Traditional blessings from the Rituale Romanum are to be prohibited. This prohibition includes the blessing of crucifixes, images, and scapulars.
    13. The 1962 Divine Office is likely to be suppressed in favor of the heretical Modernistic Vatican II Anti-council's "Liturgy of the Hours."

    Traditional Catholics, first of all, good riddance to the fake New Latin Mess of 1962, which was being used to keep clueless Neocon Newchurchers and pseudo-traditionalists in the apostate Newchurch of the New Order, to keep them bending the knee to the apostate Newpopes, and to keep them funding Newchurch's paedophile and embezzlement schemes. Since 1968 Newchurch has had a fake (invalid, null and void) Mess and Sacraments, and anti-Catholic doctrines and morals. The question now is whether any of the clueless supporters of the Newchurch apostasy will be slapped into reality and finally leave Newchurch. Frankly, we doubt it. They have been so mesmerized into the New Order by now that most of them will be obedient little automata and switch over to the New Mess. They were never really Catholics to begin with.

    The Cat Is out of the Bag on Francis-Bergoglio's Vatican III Anti-council (Synod of Synodality)
    Which Is Prepared to Introduce Priestesses, Homosexual Sodomy, and Protestant "Communion"

    Francis-Bergoglio and Newcardinal Jean-Claude Hollerich
    Shake on Plans to Paganize Newchurch Doctrine
    Bergoglio Has Appointed Hollerich to Be the Presiding Officer
    At Vatican III Anti-council (aka the Synod on Synodality)
    Which Is Prepared to Introduce Deaconesses/Priestesses
    To Make Homosexuality Moral
    And to Admit Protestants, Mormons, Seventh Day Adventists
    And the Like to the Novus Ordo Cookie and Kool-Aid

    Francis-Bergoglio's cat's paw, Robert McElroy, whom Bergoglio appointed his latest Newcardinal in the August 27, 2022, Newconsistory, has announced to the world that, contrary to what Bergoglio has been saying about the Synod, the plan is to overturn even conservative Newchurch teachings and paganize Newchurch thoroughly, just as Bergoglio has already approved the worship of the pagan gods Pachamama and Acatama. After the Synod pagan priestesses will start to be seen behind New Order "eucharistic" dinner tables, as they have already been in Switzerland.

    McElroy, apparently speaking for Bergoglio, has announced that the Synod is the proper place to implement these changes. That it is the proper time and place to introduce the installation (Newchurch no longer validly ordains since its adoption of the New Ordinal of 1968) of first deaconesses first, then priestesses. He also indicated that sodomy would be accepted as moral for homosexuals, because chastity is purportedly impossible for them. The Novus Ordo cookie would become open to all who claim to be "Christian" by their own personal definition. Apparently, that would include Mormons, Seventh Day Adventists, and Unitarians, in addition to mainline Protestants. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

    Traditional Catholics, just as at the apostate Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), the final report is already being written before the Synod on Sodality, to run from October 2023 to October 2024, is even held. Francis-Bergoglio's Presiding Officer at the Synod, its Relator General, the heretic Jean-Claude Hollerich, Newcardinal of Luxembourg, has already proclaimed that homosexuality and sodomy need to be accepted as moral by Newchurch. What is ironic is that the clueless Neocons and pseudo-traditionalists are once again being fooled, as they have been since the Vatican II Anti-council, pledging their allegiance to apostate Newpopes and an apostate Newchurch of the New Order, which is far more heretical now than the mainline Protestant sects.

    It Was a Traditional Catholic Priest Who Formulated the Monumental "Big Bang" Theory
    Of the Universe's Creation, Now Generally Accepted, not a Secular Scientist

    From: The TRADITIO Fathers
     George Lemaitre & Albert Einstein

    Fr. Georges Lemaitre, Priest and Astrophysicist
    Stands beside Albert Einstein
    Fr. Lemaitre Formulated the "Big Bang" Theory
    For the Creation of the Universe
    The Theory Now Generally Accepted by Scientists
    From Einstein's Equations of General Relativity
    Einstein Himself Was Unable to Reach This Deduction
    From His Own Equations
    The Protestant and Secular Notion
    That the True Catholic Church
    Rejects True Science Is Absurd

    It is a Protestant and secular myth that the true Catholic Church somehow rejects true science. In fact, as Pope St. Pius X taught, true science and true religion cannot contradict each other because they both derive from the Truth. Historically, most of the scientists in the Christian era have been Catholics. Even controverted Galileo Galilei (1564-1642) was a devout Catholic who prayed the Seven Penitential Psalms every day. Most Catholics today don't even know what these are! Nicolaus Copernicus (1473-1543), who reintroduced the heliocentric theory to the modern age, in his De Revolutionibus Orbium Coelestium (after crediting the theory originally to the Alexandrian Greek astronomer and mathematician Aristachus (ca. 310-230 B.C.), was a Catholic religious.

    From the early Church, the Fathers taught that there are two testaments, Sacred Scripture and God's creation, from which God Himself could be perceived, as any creator is by what he creates. King David wrote in Psalm 18/V-DRV: "Caeli enarrant gloriam Dei, et opera manuum eius adnuntiat firmamentum" [The heavens shew forth the glory of God, and the firmament declareth the work of his hands].

    In a recently-discovered interview given on February 14, 1964, Fr. Georges Lemaitre, the Belgian priest and astrophysicist, explains his formulation of the "Big Bang" Theory of the universe's creation, which is now the generally-accepted scientific theory. Fr. Lemaitre formulated the theory in 1927 from Albert Einstein's equations of general relativity that the universe is expanding and that it therefore began in a big bang. Einstein himself was unable to reach this deduction from his own equations. It remained for the Belgian priest to become the first to propose the theory of the expansion of the universe from a massive explosion in contrast to the "Steady State" Theory, in which the universe is static. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

    Traditional Catholics, any notion that the true Catholic Church is against true science is patently absurd and historically unfounded. In fact, we would still be in the dark ages without the Catholic Church, which preserved and developed the inspired notions of the ancient Classical and particularly Alexandrian Greek scientists in the centuries just before Christ. As Pope Pius XII wrote: "True science discovers God behind every door." And it has been primarily Catholic scientists who have opened that door over the last two millennia.

    Newchurch Presbyters, Like Protestant Ministers

    The Traditional Catholic Priest Prays the Blessing
    That through the Intercession of St. Blase
    The Individual May Be Freed
    From Diseases of the Throat and Every Other Evil

    Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

    As February 3, the Feast of St. Blase, Bishop and Martyr, is a weekday this year, I could not go to the Novus Ordo Mess for St. Blaise, where the Newchurch presbyter might have done the blessing of throats. Do the rubrics prevent the presbyter from doing this a day or two later, e.g., on the following coming Sunday? Also, on one occasion I recall that the Newchurch presbyter held up the crossed candles over the congregation and gave the blessing once for all. Is such a method valid?


    No, it isn't. We find no authority for the aberration of dispensing with the individual blessing and simply holding up the candles for all. It is, however, specifically permitted for the blessing to be given on the Sunday following the feastday. This kind of "community blessing" is a typical New Order corruption, which ignores Christ's administration of Sacraments/sacramentals to individuals, as is so often exemplified in the Holy Gospels, but lumps individuals together in some kind of phony Protestant-style "community" sacrament/sacramental.

    In any case, Newchurch has not ordained priests since its adoption of the Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968, but only "installs presbyters," who are like Protestant ministers, thus having to power to bless at all. It's all invalid, null and void in the apostate Newchurch of the New Order. True Catholics should never set foot in an apostate Newchurch.

    The rubric in the typical edition of the Rituale Romanum of 1944 specifically instructs: "Deinde Sacerdos duos cereos in modum crucis aptatos apponit sub mento gutturi singulorum, qui benedicendi sunt, ipsis ante Altare genuflectentibus. [Then the Priest applies two candles in the manner of a cross under the chin to the throat of the individuals who are to be blessed, when they are kneeling before the Altar]. The rubric does not require that the candles be lighted, but does required that the individual kneel, not stand. The custom is not to light the candles because of the possibility of spilling wax onto the garments of those receiving the blessing.

    What if Francis-Bergoglio Held a Vatican III "Synod," and Nobody Came?
    Bergoglio's Revolutionary 2023-2024 "Synod on Synodality" Is Getting a Cold Reception Indeed

    From: The TRADITIO Fathers

    The Truth Is Suffocating Francis-Bergoglio
    He Wants to Take the Fake Newchurch of the New Order
    The Next Step, from Protestantism to Paganism
    With His Vatican III Anti-council, to Start in October 2023
    But He Is Facing Increased Opposition to the Whole Concept
    Mostly from Young People, Who See through the Ruse
    They Have Refused to Participate in the Preparatory Work
    And Are Instead Leaving Bergoglio and His Newchurch Entirely

    As it becomes clearer and clearer that Francis-Bergoglio is lying when he says that his "Synod on Synodality" (aka the Vatican III Anti-council) is not intended to change doctrine, the reception by many Newchurchers themselves has been cold. Together with several Newchurch cardinals and Newbishops, more and more Newchurchers are reacting with "skepticism, fear, and even rejection" of Bergoglio's stratagem to take the Newchurch of the New Order the next step, from Protestantism to paganism.

    The same "no change" claim was made about the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965). It was to be merely a "pastoral council," we were told, and was not intended to change the Catholic Mass, doctrine, or morals in any essential way. That was certainly a Big Lie. As a result of the Anti-council, the Catholic Church was destroyed as the "institutional" Church and replaced on November 24, 1964, by the apostate Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church. In that Newchurch the Mass and Sacraments were destroyed to invalidity, sacrilege, blasphemy, and idolatry. Basic doctrine was changed to the point where even Newchurch's bishops can't agree on what it is. And Newchurch's morality became a sewer, in which Newpope Bergoglio encourages and supports homosexuals, lesbians, transsexuals, and, most especially, paedophiles.

    Newchurchers around the world are supposed to participate in the planning of the Synod, but most are totally uninterested. Spanish Newbishops, for example, admitted on January 31, 2023, that participation at the open preparatory phase has been "low," especially among young people. And it's getting worse. The Newbishops have said that participation is even less than in the previous phase. Not only are young people deserting Bergoglio's "synodal process," but they are leaving Newchurch itself. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency]

    Traditional Catholics, one of the most ironic statements coming from the Newbishops is that they have found a need to "attend to the liturgy through formation and a greater comprehensibility of its rites and contents." Yet we have been told for sixty years now that when the Traditional Latin Mass was dumped and that instead a "New Mess" would be simulated in every profane tongue in the world, people would understand it. Now the truth has become obvious. What the Mass really signifies is better understood in sacred Latin than in the vulgar tongues. Now even the Newbishops are admitting that Newchurch was based on a lie.

    Who Claims to Be Sympathetic to the Poor
    Yet Stole 350,000,000 USD Essentially from the Poor Box
    To Shore Up His Foundering Newchurch

    The "Unsaint" Newpope JPII-Wojtyla came up with the flawed notion of a World Youth Day in 1984. His notion quickly degenerated into a pagan orgy, at which the Newchurchers were fornicating in the bleachers, and condoms were being handed out like candy. The Eleventh World Youth Day in 2005 featured condoms with Benedict-Ratzinger's picture on them, to imply his approval of the pagan immoralities.

    The Seventeenth World Youth Day, scheduled for August 1-25, 2023, in Lisbon, Portugal, has already stirred controversy because of the 5,400,000 USD being spent on a miniature golf-style "eucharistic dinner table" (formerly called an "altar"). It is just the latest example of churches built on heretic Modernist principles mandated by the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965). This monstrosity, stretching over 5,000 square meters, is being built for the apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio's closing Mess, which isn't even a Mass, but the Vatican II Anti-council's Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New Mess." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Crux News Service.]

    Traditional Catholics, the Portuguese, who already had to bear the building of the blasphemous "tennis racket" basilica at Fatima, are vilifying Newchurch's latest blasphemy by hauling the Lisbon mayor to justify himself before Portugal's parliament. The project is being slammed as a "display of unnecessary opulence at such a difficult time." Yet Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, who in 2014 embezzled 350,000,000 USD essentially from the poor box to shore up his foundering Newchurch, falsely claims to be sympathetic to the poor. Now Portugal is going to be spending millions to host Bergoglio, 1,000 of his Newbishops, and 300 phony "concelebrants" for a fake Mess and God only knows how many condoms carrying Bergoglio's image to the randy Newchurch youth.

    Francis-Bergoglio's New Newcardinal Outs Himself as Sodomistic Like His Newpapal Master
    Roger McElroy Wants to Decriminalize Sodomy and Preach a "Lesser Gospel" to "LGBT People"

    Newbishop of San Diego, California
    His Most Recently-appointed Newcardinal
    Who Shares Bergoglio's Desire to "Queer" Newchurch

    McElroy and Bergoglio Want to Decriminalize Sodomy
    And to Declare that "These People" Are Not Capable
    Of Chastity and Should therefore Be Preached a "Lesser Gospel"

    During Francis-Bergoglio's consistory of August 27, 2022, to create new Newcardinals for his Newchurch of the New Order, many suspected that "something was rotten in the kingdom" of Newchurch. The most outstanding indicator was Bergoglio's turning his back on the President of the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops, the Newarchbishop of Los Angeles, California, Jose Gomez. The Newarchbishop of gigantic Los Angeles had traditionally been made a Newcardinal. What did Bergoglio have against this man? He was "too conservative."

    Instead, Bergoglio slapped Gomez in the face by Newcardinalizing the Newbishop, not Newarchbishop, of smaller San Diego, California, nearby, Robert McElroy. Now the reason for that bizarre appointment has become perfectly clear: McElroy is a paedophiliac just like his master Bergoglio, the Third Paedopohile Newpope, pushing the agenda of the homosexuals/transexual radicals upon the apostate Newchurch of the New Order.

    The Trojan horse for this metamorphosis is Bergoglio's vaunted "Vatican III Anti-council," also known as the "Synod on Synodality," to commence in October 2023, the same month that marks the 62nd anniversary of the original Vatican II Anti-council, which did, as was intended by the Modernist heretics who took it over away from the control of Pope John XXIII, to destroy the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church.

    McElroy on January 24, 2023, published a call for the "radical inclusion of LGBT people" into the Newchurch of the New Order, jettisoning chastity so that sodomy would now be recognized as "natural" for "these people," who "are not capable of chastity and should therefore be preached a lesser Gospel." Bergoglio himself had been caught the same week stating that homosexual acts, such as sodomy, should not be a crime.

    Who is this McElroy? When McElroy was personally informed of the predations of the infamous Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick, who sodomized children and young men up and down the east coast of the United States, he did nothing. When he was personally informed of sex crimes being perpetrated by Newchurch presbyters, Newbishops, and other Newcardinals, he did nothing. In this, McElroy is the perfect disciple of the Third Paedophile Newpope, Bergoglio. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

    Traditional Catholics, will the Newchurchers wake up to fact that clearly the Newchurch of the New Order and its Newpopes are not Catholic, but apostates from the Catholic Faith? Francis-Bergoglio's "synodal process" is a scam, just like the vaunted "spirit of Vatican II" (1962-1965), which included every shade of heresy. Many Catholics at that time never asked themselves, what "spirit" is that? Even the Modernist Unsaint Newpope Paul VI-Montini, just seven years after the Anti-council (June 29, 1972), preached that it was Satan himself:

    We have the impression that through some cracks in the wall the smoke of Satan (fumus Satanae) has entered the temple of God: it is doubt, uncertainty, questioning, dissatisfaction, confrontation.... We thought that after the [Anti-]council a day of sunshine would have dawned for the history of the Church. What dawned, instead, was a day of clouds and storms, of darkness, of searching and uncertainties.


    Benedict-Ratzinger Reveals in Posthumous Biography that He Abdicated because of a Drug Addiction

    Ratzinger Hurriedly Abdicated the Newpapacy
    In an (In)famous, Sudden 2013 Abdication
    Delivered in Latin to the Newcardinals in Consistory

    Now, just one month after the death of Benedict-Ratzinger on December 31, 2022, the explanation for the Second Paedophile Newpope's crazy Newpontificate has become clear. On January 27, 2023, the late Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger's biographer revealed the "real reason" why Ratzinger abdicated in 2013. The information came from a letter that Ratzinger sent to him. A year after Ratzinger was elected Newpope in 2004, he began to suffer from persistent, debilitating insomnia ever since he attended the 2005 World Youth Day at Cologne, Germany. At the time Ratzinger said that he had misgivings about the event, which had been established by the First Paedophile Newpope, Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla. This event had become highly secularized and vulgar, but Ratzinger had lacked the courage to cancel the event.

    Ratzinger's guilty conscience over this event and the leading role that he had played in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust had expressed itself in persistent, debilitating insomnia throughout his almost ten-year regime. For this condition he began taking megadoses of sleeping pills. Sleeping pills are dangerous drugs that can have significantly deleterious effects upon the body and the mind, particularly when taken in high doses over a period of time, all the more so when combined with alcohol in the wine and beer Ratzinger was known to drink. Moreover, these drugs are highly addictive.

    Finally, the drugs caught up with Ratzinger. He had already had several accidents, such has hitting his head on a radiator and falling out of bed, when on his junket to Mexico and Communist Cuba in 2012, he experienced a full-blown syncopal episode, waking to find himself having passed out on the floor of his bathroom stained with blood. His physicians, now alerted to the fact that he was self-medicating himself to a dangerous degree and to the point of addition, slashed his supply of soporifics and ordered that he cut back his schedule.

    Still afflicted with guilt over his complicity in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlment Holocaust, Ratzinger apparently couldn't bear the thought of having to attend another World Youth Day to be held in Rio de Janeiro in July 2013. He abdicated in February 2013 in his (in)famous "Declaratio" of February 10, 2023, delivered in Latin before the Newcardinals convoked in consistory. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Katholische Nachrichten-Agentur Deutsche.]

    Traditional Catholics, now everything makes sense. One has to consider whether Benedict-Ratzinger's actions as Newpope were tainted with the canonical impediment of non compos mentis to the point of invalidity. The same considerations came to light in 2005, when it was learned just how compromised Ratzinger's predecessor, the First Paedophile Newpope, the Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla, who suffered from several Parkinson's Disease, had been in the latter years of his Newpapacy.

    In the Front
    And only with the Presbyter
    Facing the Congregation, Protestant-style

    Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

    Concerning your recent Daily Commentary about the order in a growing number of Newdioceses banning in Newchurches the traditional ad orientem (facing toward liturgical east) orientation and banning the use of a traditional altar, if one exists, instead requiring the use of Novus Ordo freestanding altars versus populum (toward the congregation, Protestant-style), can local Newpastors simply refuse? Are Newchurch clergy bound by a vow of obedience to commit sacrilege?


    No vow can be used to excuse a sin. Any vow that requires the commission of sacrilege, idolatry, heresy, or apostasy, such as those in Newchurch, are null and void, having no legal force whatsoever.

    If even a pope ordered you to commit murder, would your commission of that Mortal Sin make you any less a damned murderer? Absolutely not! In any case, those Newchurches that once had traditional altars have long ago been desecrated by fake presbyters (Newchurch has not ordained priests since the Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968) simulating the fake (invalid) Vatican II Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New Mess" on them.

    If and when these altars come back into the control oF Traditional Catholic priests and bishops not associated in any way with the apostate Newchurch of the New Order, they can be re-blessed or reconsecrated.
