Francis-Bergoglio Terminates the Newchurch of the New Order as of April 26, 2023
And Replaces It with a Newchurch 2.0 Much More Radically Protestant, Masonic, and Pagan

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

"The Dictator Pope [Sic]"
As Francis-Bergoglio Is Known in Europe
Terminated on April 26, 2023
The Newchurch of the New Order
Founded in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council
And Replaced It with Newchurch 2.0
A Much More Radically Protestant, Masonic, Pagan
Corporation Founded in Radical
He Has even Shoved Aside Newchurch's
Phony Presbyters and Newbishops
And Replaced Them with 50 per Cent Laywomen
In His October 2023 "Vatican III" Anti-council

The apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio further confirmed on April 26, 2023, that the Newchurch of the New Order, which he heads, is most certainly not the Catholic Church. That Newchurch was founded in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) to destroy the Catholic Church and replace it with a Newchurch based upon Protestant, Masonic, and pagan principles enshrined in its new Constitution, promulgated on November 21, 1964, by Giovanni Battista Montini (aka Paul VI), the first Newpope of that Newchurch. On April 26, 2023, Bergoglio issued the first of many such decrees to come, establishing Newchurch 2.0. He is accomplishing this through his Vatican III Anti-council, which he calls the Synod on Synodality, modeled after Protestant synods that vote on doctrine, not hesitating to change even Biblical and Traditional doctrine. Protestant-style synods were provided for by the Vatican II Anti-council in place of true Oecumenical Councils.

Apparently, Bergoglio has entirely missed the recent news that such changes of Biblical and Traditional doctrine are today ripping apart the Protestant denominations between Leftist/Modernist/Marxists, who have taken over the "institutional" mechanisms, and traditionalist members, who are no longer standing for the religious perversions that the Leftists have been imposing on them. All the major Protestant denominations: Methodist, Presbyterian, Congregationalist, Anglican/Episcopalian, and others, have had it. Most recently, half of the Anglican/Episcopalians have now rejected the arrogated "authority" of the Protestant Archbishop of Canterbury, just as many Catholics have rejected the arrogated "authority" of the pretender Newpope Francis-Bergoglio.

Bergoglio has now imposed upon Newchurch's Synod on Synodality yet another Protestant heresy, the "priesthood of the people," the heresy that was initially propounded at the Vatican II Anti-council. The Synod will open on October 9, 2023, in Newrome, and will include as "voting members" 50 per cent Newchurch women. Half of the (invalid) presbyters in religious orders are to be excluded and replaced by fake Newchurch "nuns." Even the (invalid) Newbishops will be demoted. 21 per cent of them will be excluded and replaced by lay Newchurchers. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]

Traditional Catholics, this sham Synod of Synodality is what is known as a "rump council," that is, fake group, just as the Newchurch of the New Order is a fake sect, most certainly not the Catholic Church. Bergoglio will, of course, continue as IlPapa Dittatore, as he is known in Europe, the Dictator Pope. He will select the most radical Newchurchers and will pull all the strings, overruling any vote that is not in accordance with his perverted vision of the Leftist/Modernist/Marxist Newchurch 2.0, which even the Arch-heretic Martin Luther would denounce. Yet there are still many clueless Neocon Newchurchers who still bend the knee to this fraud.

"Traditionalist" Anglicans Go into Schism from the Heretic Archbishop of Canterbury over "Gay Marriage"
Will Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order Be Next to Split Apart?

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Schism in Newchurch

The German Newchurch Has Gone into Schism
From Francis-Bergoglio
Over the Issue of "Blessing Gay Marriages"
And Bergoglio Does Nothing
Because He Is a Self-admitted Homophile
Meanwhile, "Traditionalist" Anglicans Have Told
The "Woke" Archbishop of Canterbury
That They Are Splitting from Him
They Stand Public against Homosexuality, Lesbianism
"Gay" Clergy, Priestesses, and Bishopesses
And Will Reorganize Half the 100,000,000 Anglicans Worldwide
Into a New "Traditionalist" Sect
Yet Bergoglio's Own Great 2023 "Synod of Synods"
Has Much of the Same Leftists/Modernist/Marxist Goals
Of the "Woke" Protestant Archbishop of Canterbury

The German Newchurch has already gone into schism from Francis-Bergoglio, telling him that it will officially "bless gay marriages," whether he likes it or not. Bergoglio, of course, has not excommunicated the lot, but merely issues toothless statements, as he is a self-admitted homophile. Meanwhile, on the Anglican side, on April 21, 2023, African and other bishops in the Southern Hemisphere have acted more like Catholics than Newchurchers ever have and proclaimed that they will split from the Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury over the issue of "gay marriage," which he accepted in February 2023, and that they will form its own "traditionalist" synod.

The "traditionalist" Anglicans, who represent close to half of the Anglican sect of the 100,000,000 Anglicans worldwide and despise what their Leftist/Modernist/Marxist sect has become, stand publicly against homosexuality, lesbianism, "gay" clergy," priestesses, and bishopesses, and indicate that they will rip apart the former Anglican "communion." Nor are the "traditionalist" Anglicans the only "traditionalists" to split from Protestant sects that have gone "woke." In 2022, "traditionalist" members of the United Methodist Church, the largest Protestant denomination, split from the Leftist/Modernist/Marxists in their sect to form their own "traditionalist" synod. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by "The Wall Street Journal."]

Traditional Catholics, the apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio has meanwhile given away to the heretic Anglican King of England a priceless relic of the Catholic Church (which he does not head), a relic of the True Cross, found by St. Helena, mother of the first Christian Roman emperor, Constantine the Great. As previously reported in these Daily Commentaries, Bergoglio has been stealing the treasures of the Catholic Church and giving away sacred relics to heretics, while other priceless pieces of religious and classical art in the treasury of the Vatican Museums are being lost, sold, or destroyed.

Twitter Corporation "Unverifies" the Apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio
And Removed the Blue Verification Checkmark from All of His Influential Twitter Accounts

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

The Twitter Corporation Has "Unverified"
The Apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio
From the Influential Twitter Platform
And Removed the Blue "Verified" Checkmark
From All His Accounts
He Has Been Consigned Merely to Being
A Representative of a "Government
Or Multilateral Organization"
Apparently, Newchurch Is Too Bankrupt
To Cough up the $1,000 Verification Fee
And Provide the Required
"Specific Verification Information"

On April 21.2023, the apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio's Twitter account was demoted from a blue "Verified" checkmark to a gray checkmark, indicating merely a representative of a "government or a multilateral organization." Elon Musk, the Twitter Corporation's Chief Executive Officer, is known as a man who gets right to the truth of things, not as being a "respecter of persons." In that way, he is reminiscent of the leader of the Christian Church (and we don't mean Bergoglio!). Bergoglio has nine now-unverifiedTwitter accounts, in the Latin language and eight vulgar tongues.

Twitter seems to have stumbled on the truth here: Bergoglio (and all his Newpope predecessors for that matter) cannot be verified as true popes. Bergoglio himself told the international press on one of his infamous Newpapal junkets that he knows many do not consider him to be a true pope. Remarkably, Bergoglio did not go on to deny the statement. He also told Bernie Fellay, head of the Neo-Society of St. Pius X, on a visit to Newrome, the same thing.

Moreover, it seems that Newvatican is apparently so close to bankruptcy that it couldn't submit "specific verification information" and pay the 1,000 USD verification fee, which includes the service of providing longer videos and more extensive editing of tweets. One Newchurcher ironically quipped that Newchurch would use the verification fee as an excuse for yet another "second collection" for Bergoglio's "Twitter Verification Fund." If such a collection is ordered, Newchurchers cannot be sure that the donations would go the fund, as in the past Bergoglio & Co. have embezzled monies to serve whatever political purposes they please.

Bergoglio wasn't the only Newchurch organization to lose its blue Verified checkmark. Others that lost verification include the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops, the heretic arm of Bergoglio in the United States, and the spurious televangelist Joel Osteen, whom Bergoglio invited to a luncheon in the Newpapal cafeteria while he kept the Neo-SSPX's Fellay away at a remote table. Osteen, commenting on his de-verification, appeared to be vilifying Bergoglio when he told the apostate Newpope: "Accept the new thing God is doing." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Our Sunday Visitor.]

Traditional Catholics, small businesses have complained that the 1,000 USD verification fee for organizations is "prohibitive" for them. Apparently, the Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church, has been bankrupted to little more than a "small" business, with its Chief Executive Office, the apostate Newpope Bergoglio, now correctly declared "unverified."

Francis-Bergoglio Expels His Former Private Secretary from the Newpapal Apartments
The Disloyal Newarchbishop Georg Ganswein Had Published a Potboiler against His Newpope Employer

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
George Ganswein

Newarchbishop Georg Ganswein Poses
In Front of the Cadaver of Benedict-Ratzinger
Francis-Bergoglio Had Formerly Fired Ganswein
As His Private Secretary
Five Days after the Death
Of the Modernist Leader Ex-Newpope Ratzinger
Bergoglio Summoned Ganswein for a Dressing-down
Now Bergoglio Has Now Expelled Ganswein
From the Newpapal Apartments
For His Disloyalty to His Newpope Employer

On April 23, 2023, Francis-Bergoglio expelled from the papal apartments his former private secretary, Newarchbishop Georg Ganswein. Ganswein for a time had been serving both Newpope Bergoglio and Ex-Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger, but suspicion was brewing that Ganswein and Ratzinger, both Germans, were plotting against Bergoglio, an Argentinean. In January 2020 Ganswein was involved in an embroglio involving Bergoglio and Newcardinal Robert Sarah, so Bergoglio, enraged at this last straw, fired Ganswein, leaving him to tend only the ailing Ratzinger.in the latter's exile to an apartment in the Vatican Gardens.

In Ratzinger's last days Ganswein wrote a nasty potboiler that disparaged Newpope Bergoglio and extolled Ex-Newpope Ratzinger, the leader of the Modernist heretics at the Vatican II Anti-council and thereafter during his time as Newpope. Pre-publication copies of Ganswein's Nient'altro che la Verità [Nothing but the Truth] were already circulating while Ratzinger's funeral was wrapping up on January 5, 2023. Just four days later Bergoglio summoned Ganswein to the Newpapal apartments for a dressing-down, and Ganswein went into virtual exile. It appears that, whatever one may think about Bergoglio, Ganswein played a disloyal Judas to his employer and was rightly discharged and expelled. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio reportedly wants to get Ganswein as far away from him as possible, so is conniving to get the government of Costa Rica to accept Ganswein as papal nuncio to that far-away hemisphere. Such an action accords with the principle, "promoveatur ut removeatur," so that by a purported "promotion" one gets rid of his enemy. The same technique was used in the case of Newcardinal Ray "Bully" Burke, the incompetent Newarchbishop of St. Louis, Missouri, whom Ratzinger promoted/removed to the Apostolic Signatura, and then gave him nothing to do. Burke has barely been heard of since.


A Reader Asks: "Why Does the Half New Order New Latin Mess of 1962 Lack St. Joseph's Feast
Whereas Traditional Catholics, Who Follow the Uncorrupted 1950 Missal, Have Two Feasts?"

From: Mark
1962 Missal

The Missal for the New Latin Mess of 1962
Suppressed One of the Two Traditional Feasts
Of St. Joseph, the One Designating Him
As "Patron of the Universal Church"
It Seems that the Plans of the Modernists
Backfired on Them
When They Spurned the Patronage of St. Joseph
Their Newchurch of the New Order
Which Is Most Certainly Not the Catholic Church
Began a Downward Spiral that Markedly Accelerated
In the New Millennium
As Many Statistical Studies Have Shown

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

I notice that my fully Traditional Catholic missal (1950) has two feasts for St. Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary. One falls on March 19 and the other falls on the Wednesday after the Second Sunday after Easter. This latter feast also adds the title of "Patron of the Universal Church." Both are Double Feasts of the First Class, the highest rank of feast in the traditional Roman Calendar. I checked one of those corrupted Half New Order 1962 New Latin Mess missals and found that the second feast was entirely missing. Do the Modernists hate St. Joseph?


Actually, the situation is worse than that. St. Joseph's feast as Patron of the Universal Church was suppressed first not in 1962, but under Bugnini-Pius XII in 1956! This fact adds more evidence to the contention that Pius XII began on the path to a New Order as early as the 1950s under the influence of the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugninni, whom he appointed in 1948 to head the new "Commission for a Liturgical Reformation." It seems that the plans of the Modernists backfired on them. When they spurned St. Joseph, Patron of the Universal Church, their Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church, that Newchurch began a downward spiral that has markedly accelerated in the new millennium, as many statistical studies have shown.

The feast of the Solemnity of St. Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin and Patron of the Universal Church, placed in the traditional Roman Calendar on the Wednesday after the Second Sunday after Easter, is the primary feast of St. Joseph. It was suppressed in 1956 in the ramp-up to the New Order that culminated in the New Mess of 1969, which is still used in Newchurch as its Mess. The feast on March 19 was St. Joseph's secondary feast.

In 1956 Bugnini-Pius XII introduced a novel feast, St. Joseph the Workman, on May 1, Communist May Day, when the Communists roll out their tanks in a great parade. Many Catholics around the world at the time openly mocked this fabricated feast, calling it the Feast of "St. Joseph the Communist." The Sacred Congregation of Rites, the highly-conservative body that had regulated the Sacred Liturgy since 1588 in the aftermath of the Council of Trent, rejected Bugnini's new feast and refused for four years to formulate the Gregorian chant Mass and Office for the novel feast.

Following the example of the Sacred Congregation, Traditional Catholics to this day reject the Modernistic reforms of the 1950s, as well as those of the 1960s, and celebrate the great St. Joseph with his two traditional feasts.


Rome a Has New Pope: He Is Coptic Pope Tawandros II of Alexandria
Francis-Bergoglio Has Ceded His Principal Archbasilica to the Heretic Coptic Pope

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Pope Tawandros II

His Holiness, Pope Tawandros of Alexandria
Of the Oriental Orthodox Church
To Whom Francis-Bergoglio Has Ceded
His Principal Archbasilica, St. John Lateran in Rome
To Perform His Heretic "Rites" There
Even the Schismatic Eastern Orthodox
And the Heretic Protestants Accept the Dogma
Of the Divine and Human Natures of Christ
As Defined by the Fourth Oecumenical Council
Of Chalcedon in 451
Directed by Pope St. Leo the Great

Heads were spinning on April 18, 2023, when the apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio first permitted, then apologized for, a group of heretic Protestant Anglicans to simulate a fake service in the principal Church of the Popes, St. John Lateran Archbasilica in Rome. Bergoglio was then denounced, even by his own Newchurchers, as a heretic and a pretender pope.

It didn't take long for Bergoglio's famous duplicity against the Catholic Faith to resurface. In fact, just three days later, Bergoglio announced that he had given permission for a heretic group of Coptic Orientals to use an Archbasilica altar for their "rites" on May 14. The Coptic Orientals are not even Eastern Orthodox schismatics. They are Oriental Orthodox heretics, who deny the dogmatic teaching of the Fourth Oecumenical Council of Chalcedon that Jesus Christ has two natures, of God and of man, in one Divine Person, the Second Person of the Most Blessed Trinity.

The Council of Chalcedon, held in 451, was the largest of the first seven Oecumenical Councils, being attended by over 520 bishops or their legates and directed by Pope St. Leo the Great. Even the Arch-heretic Martin Luther and the Protestant heretics accept this Council and this dogma. The heretic "rites" will be presided over by Pope Tawadros II of Alexandra (the Copts call their leader "Pope"). Moreover, the Eastern Orthodox consider the Copts heretics, not part of the Eastern Orthodox sect. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]

Traditional Catholics, it is clear that the Newchurch of the New Order, and certainly its apostate Newpopes, have no idea what is "Catholic." Newchurch itself is most certainly not the Catholic Church, but a Protestant-Masonic-Pagan impostor that was fabricated by the Modernist heretics of the Vatican II Anti-council in 1964 and that took over traditional Catholic buildings around the world from that time. In the view of Newchurch there is no longer a significant difference between heretics, schismatics, and even pagans, for that matter. Except for the "traditionalists," whom Newchurch hates because they remain faithful to the Roman Catholic Faith and dare to show up Newchurch and the Newpopes as the frauds they are.

Francis-Bergoglio's Heresy Was Exposed when He Turned over His Principal Archbasilica
To Be Used by Fifty Fake and Heretic Protestant Anglican Clergy to the Shock of even His Own Newchurchers

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Anglican Protestants

Francis-Bergoglio Allowed a Group
Of Fifty Protestant Anglican Heretics
To Simulate Their Service upon an Altar
In the Pope's Principal Church
St. John Lateran Archbasilica in Rome
"The Mother and Head of All Churches
Of the City and of the World"
After His Own Newchurchers Called Him a Heretic
Bergoglio Was Forced to Apologize to the World
And to Cover up His Action
By Calling It a "Miscommunication"

Even many Catholics are unaware that St. Peter's Archbasilica is not the pope's principal church. That honor belongs to St. John Lateran, which is called "Ecclesiarum Omnium Urbis et Orbis Ecclesiarum Mater et Caput" (Mother and Head of All Churches of the City and of the World). On April 18, 2023, the apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio allowed a group of fifty invalid and heretic Protestant Anglican "bishops" and clergy to simulate their fake service on an altar there. Of course, Newchurch's own services are just as invalid and heretic.

The reaction of Bergoglio's own Newchurchers, and others, was immediate. Bergoglio himself was (again) being called a heretic by leading Newchurchers. The whole incident got so hot that Bergoglio was forced to apologize to the world and to cover up his action by calling it a "miscommunication." But as one bishop stated: "Nothing happens at the basilicas in Rome by a miscommunication or due to an oversight. A time slot for an altar must be reserved, a sacristan is always present, etc." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Service.]

Traditional Catholics, the apostate Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church, but was founded in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council to replace the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church, in fact openly allows heretic groups to simulate their invalid services upon Newchurch altars, or, as in this case, upon once-traditional Catholic altars that have been taken over by the apostates of the Newchurch of the New Order.

On and on goes Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust under Newpopes Paul VI-Montini, JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and now Francis-Bergoglio. None of them admitted their complicity or did anything really to stop the crimes, so the Newchurch Holocaust is getting worse.

On March 24, 2023, the Prosecuting Attorneys’ Council of Georgia issued a devastating 267-page report documenting sex crimes by 70 Newchurch presbyters, religious. Newdeacons, and Newseminarians in Georgia's two Newdioceses, Atlanta and Savannah. Those who have studied the crimes there say that even these numbers are far too low. Georgia's Attorney General commissioned the report in 2019. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Atlanta Journal-Constitution.]

Traditional Catholics, investigations into Newchurch dioceses for sex crimes is far from over. State investigations are ongoing for the foreseeable future. Newchurch is irreparably damaged for the future, as its moral teachings, already corrupted and watered down from Catholic teaching, are now viewed as hypocritical. Newchurch presbyters and bishops are covering up their own sex crimes, as well as their complicity in the sex crimes of their fellow Newclergy.

Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX Takes Yet Another Step toward Becoming Novus Ordo
By Embracing an Unordained, Unconsecrated Layman from Newchurch as the Neo-SSPX's Newest "Bishop"

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Vitus Huonder

Vitus Huonder Seems to Be Getting a Migrane
From the Shananigans that Bernie Fellay
And His Neo-SSPX Are Trying to Pull
By Having Him Simulate a "Chrism Mess"
On Maundy Thursday 2023
For a Neo-SSPX Major Seminary
Mr. Huonder Was Never Ordained or Consecrated
In the Traditional Catholic Sacrament of Holy Orders
Yet Fellay Is Now Desperate for New Bishops
As One Bishop Left Him, and One Is Too Sick to Function
Meanwhile, Bergoglio Has Forbidden Fellay
To Consecrate Any New Bishop
And a Schism Is Brewing in the Neo-SSPX

Who is this Novus Ordo so-called bishop, Vitus Huonder, whom Bernie Fellay, former Neo-SSPX Superior Dictator, and his current puppet, Davide Pagliarani, have so readily embraced. (The Neo-Society of St. Pius X is Fellay's reorganized corporation, which took over after the original SSPX's founder, Archbishop Lefebvre, died in 1991.)

First of all, Mr. Huonder was never ordained as a Catholic priest. He was merely "installed" as a New Order presbyter-minister under the invalid (fake) Protestantized New Ordinal adopted by Newchurch in 1968. Nor was he ever consecrated as a Catholic bishop. He was merely "installed" as a New Order "overseer" under the same invalid (fake) Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968. Therefore, he has no priestly power or episcopal power to administer any Catholic Sacraments whatsoever.

Yet Bernie Fellay and Davide Pagliarani allowed Mr. Huonder to simulate a "Chrism Mess" on April 6, 2023, for their Neo-SSPX seminary at Zaitzkofen, Germany. This Mess is not a traditional Catholic rite, but was fabricated by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini in 1956 to replace the traditional Catholic rites of Maundy Thursday, at which the holy oils are supposed to be consecrated by a bishop. Nor is Mr. Huonder a priest. In fact, he is a retired Novus Ordo cleric of Chur, Swizerland. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic news sources.]

Traditional Catholics, this fakery and sacrilege indicates just how far Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX will go to play the sycophant to the apostate Francis-Bergoglio and his Newpope predecessors. Fellay still aches to sell out to Bergoglio to become a "recognized" Novus Ordo bishop. Even Fellay's rival Neo-SSPX bishop, Tissier de Mallerais, described Huonder as "not Catholic," but apparently Tissier is too ill to fight Fellay's will to turn the Neo-SSPX over to Bergoglio in exchange for Novus Ordo purple for himself.

Some members of the Neo-SSPX have rejected Mr. Huonder as a fraud, as a new schism begins in the Neo-SSPX, which is already reeling from an investigation by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBI) for alleged sex crimes. The next step in Fellay's scenario appears to be to use Mr. Huonder to simulate "ordination" rites, as the Neo-SSPX is now down to only two bishops, Fellay and Alfonso de Galarreta. Richard Williamson abandoned the Neo-SSPX in 2012, and Tissier is too ill to function reliably. Bergoglio, of course, won't allow Fellay to consecrate another traditional bishop for the Neo-SSPX, in the expectation that the Neo-SSPX will die off owing to barrenness.

Newchurch's Leading Paedophile Newcardinal Charged again with New Sex Crimes
He Is Charged with Assaulting, with an Accomplice, a Boy in the Fake Newchurch "Confessional"

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Theodore McCarrick

Portrait of a Paedophile Newcardinal
Theodore McCarrick, of Washington, D.C.
More Charges Have Been Filed
Against One of Newchurch's Most Notorious
Sex Criminals
Because He Was a Fundraiser
For the Coffers of the Newpopes
"Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger
And Francis-Bergoglio
Who All Let Him Off
Until the Public and Newchurch Outcry
Could No Longer Be Ignored
Then Bergoglio Put Him up in a Nice House
Within a Block of a School!

The predations of Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick, formerly Newcardinal of Washington, D.C., stretch credulity. He sexually assaulted children and young Newseminarians across the United States. Francis-Bergoglio and his predecessor Newpopes ignored McCarrick's predations for years because McCarrick was a principal fund-raiser for the coffers of the Newpopes.

When more and more children, and even Newclergy themselves, fingered McCarrick publicly, Bergoglio couldn't ignore the problem any longer and quietly "laicized" the notorious paedophile Newcardinal. Bergoglio assigned him to "do penance" -- a codeword in Newchurch for living comfortably in a nice house at Newchurch expense, not in a well-deserved cold, dank cell in a monastery in the Swiss Alps with only St. Bernard dogs for company. And where was this "penance" located? Within a block of a school! After all, Bergoglio wouldn't want to deprive this paedophile of his supply of children, after McCarrick had so generously filled the Newpope's coffers with ill-gotten gain.

On April 18, 2023, McCarrick, who is already facing charges in Massachusetts for serially assaulting an 11-year-old boy for years across the United States, as well as 13 other minors and five Newseminarians, was charged in a Wisconsin court for sexually assaulting another boy in a lake. This time McCarrick "shared the honors" with an accomplice in the crime. McCarrick is facing imprisonment on charges of sexual assault against a minor.

McCarrick sometimes assaulted boys in the fake Newchurch "confessional." Newchurch confessionals are fake (invalid) because Newchurch did away with the Sacrament of Penance in 1973 and replaced it with Protestantized non-sacramental "Rite of Reconciliation." Already in 1968 Newchurch had stopped ordaining priests and substituted Protestant-style presbyter-ministers, who have no power to confer valid sacraments. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, Newcardinal McCarrick is now trying to claim that he is not mentally fit to stand trial. Yet he is mentally fit enough to deny the charges vociferously, which have been undeniably confirmed by many others. The ruined lives of children, connived in by Newpopes "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio, who all supported McCarrick's predations because he was their fundraiser, are strewn across the United States.

The German Newchurch Goes into Essential Schism
From the Newchurch of the New Order to Become even More Protestant-Masonic-Pagan

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
German Newbishops

The German Newchurch Bishops
Have Essentially Gone into Schism
From Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order
To Implement Their Own Version of Marxist/Modernism
They Will Now "Bless Sodomite Unions"
And Go Openly Protestant by Allowing
Laypeople to "Baptize" and "Preach"
They Will Also Accept the "Transgendered"
And "Remarried Divorcees"
To the Novus Ordo Cookies and Kool-Aid
Only One-seventh of the German Bishops
Expressed the Least Opposition to the Schism

The German Newchurch bishops essentially went into schism from the Newchurch of the New Order, not to return to the Catholic Church, however, but to implement their own version of Newchurch's Marxist/Modernism. The Newbishops announced plans to "bless sodomite unions" and to go openly Protestant by allowing laypeople to "baptize" and "preach" at the New Mess. The German Newbishops also announced the acceptance of the "transgenered" and "remarried divorcees" to the cookies and Kool-Aid. Only 9 of the 58 German Newbishops opposed the plan in the final vote on March 10, 2023.

This schism was opened by Francis-Bergoglio and his announced 2023-24 Synod of Synods to change the liturgy, doctrine, and morality of Newchurch. The Germans took him at his word and have started to go their own "synodal way" to reorganize their own Newchurch in the way that they want. The anti-Catholic revolution fomented by the Vatican II Anti-council of 1962-1965 also originated in Germany. The theological leader of the revolution, the Modernist Josef Ratzinger, was later adopted as Newpope of the Newchurch in 2005 under the moniker "Benedict XVI." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]

Traditional Catholics, what has been Francis-Bergoglio's reaction to this schism from his own Newchurch of the New Order? Has he excommunicated the schismatic bishops and the German lay schismatics? Of course not. He has made a few murmurings for the record, but is, as always, a paper tiger when it comes to Marxist/Modernist apostates because the Newpope himself is one of them.

Did "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla Sexually Assault the 15-year-old "Vatican Girl"
And then Use the Mafia to Get Rid of the Girl, Who Disappeared in 1983?

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Emanuela Orlandi

All Rome Wants to Know:
Did "Unsaint" Newpope JPII-Wojtyla
Sexually Assault the 15-year-old "Virgin Girl"
Emanuela Orlandi?
Her Brother Believes that He Did
And Had an Eight-hour Meeting
With Newvatican's Chief Prosecutor
At Which He Presented
A Telephone Recording
To Corroborate the Charge
The Girl's Case Has Been Resurrected
After the 2023 Broadcast of a Four-part
Netflix Television Series

The cover-up has gone on for more than four decades, but now the question has hit the front page of Rome's newspapers once again: did "Unsaint" Newpope JPII-Wojtyla sexually assault the "Vatican Girl"? When the Polish tourist agencies staged a demonstration to make Newpope Wojtyla a "Subito Santo," that is an immediate "Unsaint" of the apostate Newchurch of the New Order, we TRADITIO Fathers condemned the move at the time because not only was Wojtyla a heretic, being a full-throated member of the Newchurch sect, but also there had been a number of disturbing charges against him personally over the years. What was the rush to Unsainthood. Now we know.

Newchurch used every trick in its book to suppress the issue and went careening ahead to make Wojtyla an Unsaint under Newpope Francis-Bergoglio using the corrupted Novus Ordo procedures for con-anization. However, God's justice is endemic in the universe and cannot be quashed forever. The 15-year-old victim, Emanuela Orlandi, whose father worked in Wojtyla's Newpapal household, disappeared in 1983. On April 12, 2023, Orlandi and his attorney had an eight-hour meeting with Newvatican’s top prosecutor. The prosecutor was backed into a corner, as the girl's case was prominently featured in a 2023 four-part Netflix television series titled "Vatican Girl." The Romans have never let the case drop in the intervening forty years. It still remains a matter of intense public interest, as the release of the 2023 television series proves.

The girl's brother, Pietro Orlandi, has charged that Wojtyla sexually assaulted girls, including his sister. He charged that her disappearance was related to a "climate of sexual abuse and paedophilia inside the Vatican" and that Wojtyla himself used to go out in mufti in the evenings and brought girls back to his quarters. He further charged that Newvatican officials used the Mafia to "get rid" of the girls. Orlandi presented a corroborating telephone recording to the prosecutor. In the recording, a Newvatican bishop indicated that paedophilia among Newcardinals "and even higher" (i.e., Newpopes) was "something normal and accepted." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]

Traditional Catholics, this is not the first time that "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla has been implicated in seamy goings-on. It certainly doesn't help that he let off Bernard Law, the notorious Newcardinal of Boston, Massachusetts, who was at the center of Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust when it burst into public knowledge in the Boston Globe's 2002 Spotlight investigation. The Newchurch sect's house of cards is coming tumbling down, ever since the Vatican II Anti-council founded the Newchurch of the New Order to replace the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church.

Communist China Shafts the Apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio
And the Marxist/Modernist Newpope Doesn't Life a Finger

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Joseph Shen Bin

The Communist Party of China
Has Appointed Joseph Shen Bin

Red China has now officially broken its "secret" concordat with Francis-Bergoglio and appointed Joseph Shen Bin, a member of the Communist Party of China, as Newbishop of Shanghai. Newpope Bergoglio, a Marxist/Modernist, did not officially approve of the appointment, but took no action. When Archbishop Lefebvre in 1988 ordained bishops without Newvatican's approval, he was "excommunicated" from the Newchurch of the New Order.

In 2018 Bergoglio sold out to the Communists and agreed to let the Chinese Communist Party share equally in the appointment of Newbishops. Bergoglio renewed that arrangement in 2020 and 2022, but Red China decided to give the apostate Bergoglio the finger and make the appointment solely on its own authority. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Asia News.]

Traditional Catholics, Shen Bin has pledged to continue in "patriotism and love" for the Chinese Communist Party and to turn his Newchurch diocese into an arm of the Communists. The persecution of Newchurchers, not to speak of Protestants and Uyghurs, continues unabated. And Francis-Bergoglio says not a word. Why should he? He virtually admitted in his own autobiography that he is a Marxist, and he has frequently alluded to the fact that many believe that he is a Marxist, nor does he deny it.

Newchurch's Demise Hits Francis-Bergoglio in His Own Backyard
As the Largest Newarchdiocese of Milan Sinks Attracts only Six Candidates to Be New Order Presbyters

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
St. Ambrose of Milan

When St. Ambrose (374-397)
Great Father and Doctor of the Church
Was Archbishop of Milan
He Was even More Powerful
Than the Roman Emperor
In 2022 the Largest Newarchdiocese in Europe
Could Attract only Six Young Men
To Apply for the New Order Presbyterate
(Newchurch Having Given up the Priesthood
In 1968 when It Adopted a Protestant New Ordinal)

Milan once had better days. In the third century it was the capital of the Roman Empire, after Rome had been abandoned by the later emperors for the more strategically-located northern city. Milan had its own Latin Rite, known as the Ambrosian Rite, named after the Great Father and Doctor of the Church, St. Ambrose, who was Archbishop of Milan from 374 to 397. Now, Milan, Europe's largest Newchurch archdiocese, has virtually no young men entering its Newseminary. The consequences of Newchurch's apostasy and paedophilia are taking a great toll.

Thing were already bad in 2017. Milan had only 24 new candidates to be Protestant-Masonic-Pagan presbyters (ministers), after Newchurch stopped ordaining priests in 1968 and began using a Protestantized Ordinal in that year. In 2022, that number had fallen by 75 per cent to just six. The number of continuing Newseminarians dropped from 139 to just 78 during the same period. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic news sources.]

Traditional Catholics, Milan is perhaps the most salient example of the fall of the Newchurch of the New Order. When St. Ambrose was archbishop, the Catholic Church in Milan was more powerful than the Roman government, which then had its seat there. Now Milan, under the Newchurch of the New Order, is a shadow of its former self. Even the Newchurchers don't want to have anything to do with it. They can no longer deny that Newchurch is a pretender Church, most certainly not the Catholic Church, full of apostasy from the Catholic Faith and moral crimes that surpass those of the secular society that surrounds it.

Traditionally, Catholic prayers are divided into public and private. The public ("liturgical") prayers take precedence. They are principally, in order of precedence:

  1. The Holy Sacrifice of the Mass
  2. The Divine Office (Officium Divinum), consisting of the Hours of Matins, Lauds, Prime Terce, Sext, None, Vespers, Compline
  3. The Sacramental Orders and related liturgical prayers, such as the Five Litanies (of the Saints, of the Holy Name, of the Sacred Heart, of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Litaniae Lauretanae), of St. Joseph
  4. The Office of the Dead (Officium Defunctorum), consisting of the Hours of Matins, Lauds, and Vespers
  5. The Little Office of the Blessed Virgin Mary (Officium Parvum Sanctae Mariae Virginis), which is similar to the Common of the Blessed Virgin Mary from the Divine Office

Subordinate to these are the indulgenced private prayers, in order of precedence:

  1. The Stations of the Cross (Via Crucis)
  2. The Rosary
  3. The Angelus, or the Regina Caeli in Paschaltide
  4. The anthem Ave Maris Stella
  5. Others as indicated in the traditional Catholic Enchiridion Indulgentiarum

Francis-Bergoglio About to Issue the Third Nail in the Coffin of the New Latin Mess of 1962
Now He Has an Imminent Decree to Suspend the Newseminaries of the FSSP and Other Indult Groups

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Francis-Bergoglio's Next Targets
Is a Requiem of the Former "Indult" Newseminaries
Such as Those of the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP)
And the Institute of Christ the King (ICRSS)
Bergoglio's Inquisitors Have Determined
That the New Latin Mess of 1962
Is Still Being Taught in These
Contrary to Bergoglio's Earlier Decrees
Thus, They Are Imminently to Be Suspended
Until They Conform Fully with Exclusive Training
In the Vatican II Anti-council's New Order Mess

Word comes from Newvatican sources that Francis-Bergoglio is about to issue the third nail in the coffin of the Vatican II New Latin Mess (aka Mess of 1962), which was the stepping stone to the fully Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Order Mess of 1969. Already having issued the July 17, 2021, decree "Traditionis custodis," virtually banning the New Latin Mess from Newparishes, Bergoglio then strengthened his decree with the February 20, 2023, Rescriptum ex Audientia, which strips Newbishops of any authority to permit New Latin Masses at Newparishes, but requires permission from Newvatican's Dicastery for Divine Worship, which has already decreed that such permissions will not be given.

Since January 2023 Bergoglio has indicated the imminent release of a new decree that will suppress the operation of all former "indult" Newseminaries, like those of the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) and the Institute of Christ the King (ICRSS). The reports from Bergoglio's inquisitors has determined that the New Latin Mess is still being taught in Newseminaries contrary to Bergoglio's earlier decrees. Thus, he is suspending such Newseminaries until they conform fully with exclusive training in the Vatican II Anti-council's New Order Mess.

The document was to be released on April 3, 2023, but Bergoglio's recent admission to the hospital for bronchitis has postponed the release date slightly. The document has been drafted, reviewed, finalized, and Latinized, and awaits only official promulgation. Those Newseminarians and instructors who cannot confirm to Newchurch requirements are to be cast out to the Neo-Society of St. Pius X, run by Bernie Fellay and his agent, Davide Pagliarani, and to secular institutions.

Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio has indicated that this third document of suppression of the New Latin Mess of 1962, which is most certainly not the Traditional Latin Mass, will not be the last in the series. There are more restrictions coming, so that the Neocon pseudo-traditionalists should long ago have parachuted out of the Newchurch of the New Order entirely and betaken themselves to one of the many Traditional Catholic churches, chapels, and oratories independent of the Newchurch of the New Order, which have preserved the Catholic Mass, Sacraments, and Divine Office from before the gross sacrileges and heresies of the 1950s "liturgy," leading up to the Half New Order Mess of 1962 and the invalid (fake) Full New Order Mess of 1969.

Francis-Bergoglio Approves "Mayan Mess"
Replete with Paganism, Idolatry, Blasphemy, and Sacrilege

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Mayan Mess

The Local Newchurch Bishop Presides
At Francis-Bergoglio's New "Mayan Mess"
At Which He Worships the Pagan Gods
Of the Cardinal Directions of the Compass
The Gods of the North, West, South, and East
The Apostate Newpope Bergoglio
Has Enthusiastically Approved
This Idolatry, Blasphemy, and Sacrilege
As Well as the "Congolese Mess"
For the African Congo
This Is Paganism Gone Wild in Newchurch

When we think of the Maya, although we think of its somewhat-culturally-advanced, but pagan, civilization on the Yucatan peninsula of Mexico, with its pyramids, its calendar, and its hieroglyphic writing system, we cannot help but think also of its religion of butchery and savagery, as so vividly depicted recently in Traditional Catholic producer-director Mel Gibson's 2006 film "Apocalypto," in which heads were decapitated and rolled down those same pyramids and young girls were sacrificed to the pagan gods on their peaks.

On March 17, 2023, Newvatican announced that Francis-Bergoglio is encouraging the use of a Mayan rite of the New Order Mess. This new rite, replete with pagan idolatry and symbolism, is being shoveled out by Bergoglio to clueless Newchurchers as a "Catholic Mess." The "Mayan Mess" features women as "co-deacons," married deacons (the first step toward deaconesses and priestesses, and a non-celibate clergy), snake dances to communicate with the pagan gods, and costumes depicting the pagan "divinities."

The "Mayan Mess" is dripping with polytheism, i.e., the worship of many gods, which is in accord with the Vatican II Anti-council's Oecumenical Heresy: we all worship the same gods, all gods are true. This is the traditionally-condemned heresy of Syncretism or Indifferentism. These heresies are known to be rife in the Newchurch "seminaries" of the area.

Paganism is not new to the apostate Newpope Bergoglio. On June 20, 2022, Bergoglio, staged the monstrosity of the "Congolese Mess," complete with drums and dancing, implemented in Newchurch for the African Congo (since renamed to Zaire) as early as 1988, on top of the very tomb of St. Peter in his archbasilica to give it more notoriety while he works on the final details of the pagan "Mayan Mess." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]

Traditional Catholics, none of this wild paganism, idolatry, blasphemy, and sacrilege is "Catholic." It is all part of the Newchurch of the New Order, which was founded at the Vatican II Anti-council in 1964 to replace the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church. In the almost sixty years since then, the apostate Newpopes Paul VI-Montini, JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio have done their utmost to destroy the Catholic Church and to implement its replacement by a Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the catholic Church. Its adherents in sixty years have themselves given up the Catholic faith to become the kind of pagans that were prayed against in the recent Good Friday monitions.

"Catholic Charities" Has Become a Front Group for Thieves
A Newchurch Official Has Been Caught Stealing from the Elderly to the Tune of Half a Million Dollars

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Catholic Charities

"Catholic Charities" Has Become
A Front Group for Fraud
Enabling Thieves of Donated Monies
To Pocket Funds for Themselves
The Latest Case Is of a Woman Official
Who Stole over 550,000,000 USD
To Pay Her Own Personal Credit Card
Home Mortgage, and Other Expenses
Over a Period of Twelve Years
While the Newbishop of Stockton, California
Twiddled His Thumbs
and Never Properly Audited
The Funds Donated by Clueless Newchurchers

In the second half of Newchurch Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, most of the emphasis has been on the first half of the title, whereas Newchurch's rampant embezzlement of donated funds and collections gets much less coverage. Yet the apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio has himself been implicated in the 350,000,000 USD embezzlement of Newchurch funds in the 2014 London Real Estate Fraud. He has been fingered by witnesses under oath as the mastermind behind the embezzlement in the trial now ongoing in Newvatican. "Nuns" steal Newchurch funds to hightail it off to Las Vegas to gamble away the money at the roulette tables. Presbyters steal from Newparish collections and deposit funds received into their own personal accounts to buy personal real estate, expensive cars, and exorbitant vacations to the Bahamas.

"Catholic Charities" has long been the subject of embezzlements by the Newchurch that runs it. It has become little more than a front group for thieves. The latest case is that of a official in the Newdiocese of Stockton, California, which had gone bankrupt in 2017. On April 3, 2023, the official, a Newchurch laywoman, pled guilty in U.S. District Court to the theft of 550,000,000 USD and faces up to twenty years in prison. Her victims were elderly Social Security recipients -- the very people whom "Catholic Charities" was supposed to be helping. The woman embezzled the money to pay her personal credit-card bills, to pay off her personal home mortgage, and other personal expenses. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by ABC News.]

Traditional Catholics, it is remarkable that this theft had been going on for twelve years, from 2003 to 2015, with Newbishop Stephen Blaire essentially acting as an accomplice in the embezzlement, not even bothering to audit properly the funds for which he bore the moral responsibility to all his clueless donors to "Catholic Charities." The moral of this story is that Traditional Catholics should tell any family or friends that still attend the Newchurch of the New Order to get out of that apostate sect and not to give one mite of money to its corrupt Newdioceses and agencies.

St. Joseph, the Model for Us against Newchurch Leaders
Who Never Stop Vainly Prattling, but Accomplish Nothing for God or Man

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

St. Joseph Provides the Perfect Contrast
As a Silent Man of Action
Opposed to Vainly Prattling Newpopes
What a Model St. Joseph Provides
For Us to Act on Our Catholic Beliefs
Not just to Prattle Vain Words
Like the Newchurch Leaders
Who Actually Do Nothing
And Displease God to Their Perdition

The ancient Romans had an expression: facto, non verbo, roughly translated as "It's not what you say; it's what you do." The current Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio, is known for talking a good game, but actually doing nothing. His answer to the continuing sexual predations of his Newbishops and presbyters against children in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust was merely to set up a flashy web site and to appoint a committee so dysfunctional that several of its members have publicly resigned in protest.

Providing the Catholic contrast to the apostate Bergoglio is the great St. Joseph, whose feastday fell during Lent on March 19. The Bible does not record a single thing that he said, but it records much that he did, principally as protector of the Christ Child by accepting the role of His adoptive father and protecting Him from the murderous King Herod the Great. Because of St. Joseph's unwavering commitment to his duty to the Holy Family, he has been given the title "Terror of Demons." Acting in the teeth of the Enemy, Satan, St. Joseph simply "did as the Angel of the Lord had commanded him" (Matthew 1:24/DRV).

Traditional Catholics, tradition tells us that St. Joseph died a peaceful death in the Lord, in the presence of the Holy Family whom he had acted to protect his entire life, that is, in the presence of the Blessed Virgin, whom he had taken as his wife, in spite of his doubts, at the command of the Angel of the Lord, and in the presence of God Himself, in the person of the Christ Whom he had fostered his entire life by the will of God, to which he absolutely committed himself. What a model St. Joseph provides for us to act on our Catholic beliefs, not just to prattle vain words like the Newchurch leaders, who actually do nothing and displease God to their perdition!


Newchurch in Once-Catholic Ireland Has Suffered a Dramatic Decline since the Vatican II Anti-council
Most Irish Now Hate the Paedophile Newpopes that Have Destroyed Ireland's Faith

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Empty Irish Newchurch

An Irish Newchurch Presbyter
Elevates the Fake Grape Juice
To an Absolutely Empty Congregation
Ireland, Once the Most Catholic of All
Has Now Turned Its Back
On the Apostate Newchurch of the New Order
Attendance at the "New Mess" Has Tanked
By More than Two-thirds in just Fifty Years
Hatred of Newchurch and Its Paedophile Newpopes
Is So Great that the Irish Prime Minister
Has Told Them Not to Visit Ireland
Because He Cannot Provide Security for Them
Against Assassination

Ireland. The land that saved the Catholic Church by the preservation in its monasteries of Roman classical and ecclesiastical writings that virtually disappeared during the "Dark Ages" after the Fall of Rome. Before the replacement of the Catholic Mass by the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New Mess" in 1969, Ireland boasted 91 per cent attendance at Sunday Mass each week. In less than fifty years, by the latest survey taken for 2021, that number had tanked by more than two-thirds and continues to tank.

Irish churches before the "New Mess" were so crowded that Catholics had to sit on the steps outside are now virtually abandoned or closed forever. Churches used to be so full that Catholics had to come early to Mass to get a seat. No more. Not since the "New Mess" and paedophile Newpopes, whose Newbishops and presbyters have ravaged Ireland's children, not even sparing orphans, the blind, and the deaf. Hatred of Newchurch and its paedophile Newpopes is so great that when Benedict-Ratzinger wanted to visit, the Prime Minister told him to stay home because the people of Ireland were so enraged against Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust that he could not protect Ratzinger's life. Francis-Bergoglio hasn't even dared go. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, Ireland's Newchurch clergy is disappearing: hauled off to prison for sex crimes, retiring as fast as it can to get out, or dying off. More than one-third of Irish presbyters are over the age of 60. Applications to the corrupt Newchurch seminaries have dried up. Many churches in Ireland don't have a single presbyter. At least ten Newdioceses do not have a single Newseminarian studying to become -- not a priest; Newchurch stopped ordaining priests in 1968 -- a presbyter-minister like Protestants.


Francis-Bergoglio Admits that He's "Lousy at Interviews"
To Protect Catholic Doctrine, True Popes Never Gave Interviews

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Give Me a Microphone, and I'll Say Anything:
Francis-Bergoglio Is Noted for Extemporaneously Uttering
Heresies, Blasphemies, Profanities, and Lies
He Has Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD)
That Affects His Ability to Discern Truth from Lies
And Views Any Criticism as a Paranoiac Would
He Always Has to Be the Center of Attention
And Distrusts Others
True Popes Don't Give Interviews
In Fear of Misstating Catholic Doctrine
But because Bergoglio Is an Apostate
From Catholic Faith
He Doesn't Worry about His Doctrinal Errors

Francis-Bergoglio has admitted what is clear to everyone by this point, that he is "lousy at interviews." The question is: why is he even giving interviews? True popes never gave interviews in fear of misstating Catholic doctrine. They released only official written statements that had been thoroughly vetted by doctrinal experts in the Roman Curia. But Bergoglio fancies himself as some kind of "celebrity" who can say anything that comes into his head.

Bergoglio seems cursed with running off at the mouth. He has uttered heresies, blasphemies, profanities, and lies. He just can't seem to shut up, having Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD), a psychosis associated with paranoia, by which he always has to be the center of attention and distrusts others. His actions have proven time and again that he is afflicted with this psychological disorder. Paranoiacs are also clever at covering up the truth, as Bergoglio has with Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, in which Newchurch clergy continue unabated and unchecked to rape, sodomize, and otherwise sexually assault children.

“Interviews are not my forte,” Bergoglio has stated and admitted that he did not express himself clearly when he speaks extemporaneously. In that case, he should remove the temptation and put down the microphone. He has been particularly known for his foul mouth, emitting filth against anyone from his Newcardinals on down to his particularly-hated pseudo-traditionalists, who he has called, inter alia, "shit-eaters" (coprophagiacs). [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]

Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio hates any criticism, as is characteristic of a Narcissist psychotic. He will not hesitate to launch personal attacks on others, but will not tolerate them against himself. Yet those attacks are becoming ever more common, from his own Newcardinals, Newbishops, presbyters, and laymen. He admits that he knows there are many who consider him a Marxist, even a Communist, and he does not deny the charge. He says that his best friends are atheists and that they are better than Catholics. No wonder even some of his Newcardinals are calling him not a pope, but an excommunicated apostate from the Catholic Faith, i.e., one who denies not just one doctrine of the Faith, but many doctrines of the Faith.

As the great drama of our redemption draws to an end, let us join in the joy of Holy Mother Church today as she specially sets before us after Communion the great psalm of praise to our risen Lord: "Praise the Lord, all ye nations; praise him, all ye people.

Holy Saturday: The Mother of All Vigils
The Light of Christ Is Kindled, We Hear the Ancient Prophecies, and the First Mass of Easter Is Celebrated at Noon

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Nadal's Christus Descendens ad Inferos

What Transpired when Christ Descended into Limbo
On Holy Saturday

WARNING AGAINST THE FALSE "NEW RITES" OF HOLY WEEK (1956-1962)." The heresy-tinged Modernist changes of 1956-1962 gutted the Traditional Latin Rites of this most holy week of the entire year. They were engineered by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, the Chief Architect of the Novus Ordo (New Order) of 1969, and were never approved by Pope Pius XII in forma specifica. They were introduced by Bugnini as a transition to the fabricated, invalid Novus Ordo of 1969.

Among the Modernisms introduced for Holy Saturday, making the false "Extraordinary" rites of 1956-1962 like the invalid Novus Ordo service, are: (1) eliminating two of the three ancient prayers blessing the new fire; (2) replacing the traditional ceremony for inscribing and blessing the Paschal candle with a new one, completely fabricated by the Modernists; (3) completely changing the ancient procession of the triple candle into the church while Lumen Christi was thrice invoked as each candle of the reed was individually lighted; (4) modifying the ancient Paschal Proclamation, the Exsultet; (5) eliminating eight of the twelve Old Testament prophecies foretelling the coming of Christ; (6) directing that the Collects be chanted at the sedilia rather than the altar, in the manner of the Novus Ordo "presider"; (7) dividing and partially eliminating the traditional Litany of the Saints; (8) introducing a spurious "Renewal of Baptismal Vows" in the vernacular, the first time that the vernacular is explicitly permitted as an integral part of a liturgical rite; (9) eliminating in their entirety from the Mass the Prayers at the Foot of the Altar and the Last Gospel, as does the Novus Ordo service; (10) moving the entire service to nighttime instead of before noon with the First Mass of Easter immediately following at noon, in contravention of the traditional principle that during Lent, in both Western and Eastern rites, there is a symbolic inversion of time as a consequence of the Fall, with the restoration of normality coming only with the victory of the Lord on Easter morning.

Through these rites of Holy Saturday, historically and devotionally so gripping, from ancient ages the most solemn of all Vigils of the year, we see Our Lord revealed to us in specific ways, and we in turn are called upon to reflect Him in those ways in our own lives. Together, on this, the "Mother of All Holy Vigils," as St. Augustine calls it, we hear the Lessons that teach us the history of our Faith, the Old Law before the fulfillment of our redemption under the New. We come through the darkness of Our Lord's Passion and Death into the light, as together we now celebrate His glorious Resurrection.

WARNING AGAINST THE FALSE "NEW RITES" OF HOLY WEEK (1956-1962)." The heresy-tinged Modernist changes of 1956-1962 gutted the Traditional Latin Rites of this most holy week of the entire year. They were engineered by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, the Chief Architect of the Novus Ordo (New Order) of 1969, and were never approved by Pope Pius XII in forma specifica. They were introduced by Bugnini as a transition to the fabricated, invalid Novus Ordo of 1969.

Among the Modernisms introduced for Good Friday, making the false "Extraordinary" rites of 1956-1962 like the invalid Novus Ordo service, are: (1) changing the one aliturgical day, on which no Mass was celebrated because "the Apostles hid themselves for fear of the Jews," into a full-scale communion service; (2) directing that the "presider" conduct the first part of the service from the sedilia rather than from the altar in Novus Ordo style; (3) directing that the Litanical Prayers be chanted from a book at the center of the altar in contravention of the Roman rite; (4) changing the litanical Prayer for Heretics and Schismatics into a "Prayer for the Unity of Christians"; (5) commanding that a genuflection be made in the litanical Prayer for the Jews, which was anciently omitted because the Jews genuflected to mock Christ during His Agony; (6) allowing the crucifix to be held up for a brief adoration, as in the Novus Ordo, rather than having the people approach the Communion rail to kiss it; (7) suppressing the Solemn Procession from the Repository with the Blessed Sacrament and the singing of the ancient hymn Vexilla Regis; (8) eliminating the offertory, incensation, and elevation of the Blessed Sacrament; (9) directing that the congregation recite the Pater Noster with the priest in Novus Ordo style; (10) allowing Communion to be received this day, which was anciently prohibited on Good Friday; (11) adding a responsorial psalm to the communion service in Novus Ordo fashion.

After the celebration of Good Friday at the University of Durham, England, one year, Rev. Dr. T.C.G. Glover, JCD, a former priest of the Roman Oratory, who continued to celebrate the Sacred Triduum in the Traditional Latin Roman form, was asked why he didn't celebrate the false Modernist rites of 1956-1962, introduced into Newchurch by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini. His answer was pure Dr. Glover at his very best: "I would rather get drunk in a brothel than celebrate that crap."

There are few scenes liturgically more impressive than the appearance of the church at the beginning of the rites of Good Friday. The bare floor, the dismantled altar, the veiled crucifix, the unlighted candles. Then, when the procession of the celebrant in black vestments with servers has silently made its way to the sanctuary, the sudden prostration before the altar, where the celebrant annihilates himself in abject penitence -- all these are things that can hardly fail to produce an effect upon each one of us. Then follow the sorrowful lessons and tracts and the reading of the Passion of Our Lord, producing a sense of desolation that no other service in the liturgical year approaches. On this day the Church gives her churches an appearance of desolation and clothes her clergy in mourning. Today the Church, and we who enter the church, are in mourning because Our Lord has died to redeem us.

WARNING AGAINST THE FALSE "NEW RITES" OF HOLY WEEK (1956-1962)." The heresy-tinged Modernist changes of 1956-1962 gutted the Traditional Latin Rites of this most holy week of the entire year. They were engineered by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, the Chief Architect of the Novus Ordo (New Order) of 1969, and were never approved by Pope Pius XII in forma specifica. They were introduced by Bugnini as a transition to the fabricated, invalid Novus Ordo of 1969.

Among the Modernisms introduced for Maundy Thursday, making the false "Extraordinary" rites of 1956-1962 like the invalid Novus Ordo service, are: (1) cutting out the Credo and the Last Gospel; (2) adding a responsorial psalm to the communion service in Novus Ordo fashion; (3) importing the Maundy (washing of feet) into the Mass, as in the Novus Ordo; (4) directing that the Collect following the Maundy be chanted "facing the people," as in the Novus Ordo; (5) eliminating the adornment and adoration of the Blessed Sacrament in the Repository; (6) the fabrication of a new "Chrism Mass," which separates the function of the blessing and consecration of the Sacred Oils for the Sacraments from the one Mass of Maundy Thursday.

We have today to consider a great and awful mystery of betrayal. This betrayal is commemorated in the special Canon used only at this Mass of Maundy Thursday. Judas, one of the twelve chosen disciples of Our Lord, taught by Him for three years, confirmed in the faith by so many miracles, loaded with graces, becomes the tool of those who plot the death of Our Lord. He traitorously sells His Lord to the high priest for the ancient price of a slave, thirty Roman denarii. But Judas here is not only an historical figure of some 2000 years ago. He is spiritually each one of us, sinners, for whom Christ so grievously began His suffering and death this night. Let us consider the betrayal of Judas and what it forces us to confront in our own spiritual lives.

Holy Wednesday - "Spy Wednesday"

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Spy Wednesday

Today is known as "Spy Wednesday," in remembrance of the traitorous deed of Judas Iscariot. The Introit gives us a foretaste of what is to come after the Passion and Death of our Lord: "In nomine Domini omne genu flectatur, caelestium, terrestrium, et infernorum" (Philippians 2:10/V). But immediately juxtaposed to this acknowledgment of divine glory is the other side of the equation. This is the refrain that will be repeated at every Hour of the Divine Office beginning tomorrow: "Quia Dominus factus obediens usque ad mortem, mortem autem crucis" (Philippians 2:8/V).

Today we turn our sights to the Cross. The Introit consists not of the usual psalm, but with the words of St. Paul, putting the meaning of the Cross into perspective for us: "Nos autem gloriari oportet in cruce Domini nostri Iesu Christi (Galatians 6:14/V). Holy Mother Church then adds: "In quo est salus, vita, et resurrectio nostra, per quem salvati, et liberati sumus."

Today we begin by placing our trust firmly in God. In the Introit Psalm (34:1/V): Iudica, Domine, nocentes me, expugna impugnantes me, we call upon the Lord to battle against those who are impugning us. We call upon the Lord to take up arms and shield, and we call upon Him as the strength of our salvation. The Collect acknowledges how many adversities we face and how we fail from human infirmity. It is only through the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ that we are given life again (respiremus).

Palm Sunday: Holy Week Begins
The Most Sacred Week of the Year for Traditional Catholics

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

AS HOLY WEEK, THE MOST SACRED WEEK OF THE YEAR, BEGINS, true Catholics traditionally complete the daily chores that might be an obstacle to participating in the ancient, traditional rites of Holy Week. All true Catholics should attend the traditional sacred rites not only on Palm Sunday but also on Holy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday. On Maundy Thursday we commemorate the institution of the Holy Eucharist, the First Mass, and the Ordination of the Apostles. The priesthood and the Holy Eucharist are living events that should remind us of the continuing value of Christ's act of redemption for the sin of man. Good Friday is an unforgettable reminder to all of us of the price of being a follower of Christ. We have to give something of ourselves to be followers of Christ. The Holy Saturday Vigil is the most solemn memorial of the central mystery of our redemption: Christ's saving death and glorious resurrection. We are reminded that we are obligated as Catholics to carry Christ into our world.

Accordingly, our Daily Commentaries during Holy Week will shift from current events and reader questions, and focus instead upon a Meditation and Recommended Sacred Music for each day of this week. Also, we shall add a "WARNING AGAINST THE FALSE 'NEW RITES' OF HOLY WEEK (1956-1962)," which are not the Catholic and Apostolic Rites of Holy Week going back to the early Church, but were instead introduced by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini in 1956 as a transition to the fabricated, invalid New Order Mess of 1969. The Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church, prohibits the use of the Catholic and Apostolic Rites of Holy Week. HOWEVER, THE FULLY CATHOLIC AND APOSTOLIC RITES OF HOLY WEEK BEFORE 1956 ARE STILL TO BE FOUND AT TRADITIONAL CATHOLIC CHURCHES, CHAPELS, AND ORATORIES INDEPENDENT OF THE HERETICAL NEWCHURCH OF THE NEW ORDER.

WARNING AGAINST THE FALSE "NEW RITES" OF HOLY WEEK (1956-1962)." The heresy-tinged Modernist changes of 1956-1962 gutted the Traditional Latin Rites of this most holy week of the entire year. They were engineered by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, the Chief Architect of the Novus Ordo (New Order) of 1969, and were never approved by Pope Pius XII in forma specifica. They were introduced by Bugnini as a transition to the fabricated, invalid Novus Ordo of 1969.

Among the Modernisms introduced for Palm Sunday, making the 1956-1962 rite like the invalid Novus Ordo service, are: (1) directing that red vestments be used, as in the Novus Ordo service, instead of the traditional violet vestments; (2) eliminating the Introit, Collect, Epistle, Responsory, Gospel, Preface, and Sanctus of the First Mass, after which the palms are blessed; (3) directing the priest to leave the altar and face the congregation Novus-Ordo style while blessing the palms; (4) eliminating four of the five ancient prayers of blessing; (5) eliminating the prayers and ceremonial of re-entering the church after the procession of the palms; (6) directing that the priest chant the final Collect facing the congregation Novus-Ordo style with his back to the Holy Tabernacle; (7) eliminating the beginning and end of the Passion of Our Lord Jesus Christ according to St. Matthew; (8) eliminating the Last Gospel, as in the Novus Ordo service.

All the ceremonies of Palm Sunday -- the blessing of the palms, the procession, the chanted Hosannas -- are instituted by Holy Mother Church to recall the triumphal entry of Christ into Jerusalem on this day. What a contrast, at only six days' interval, between the honors rendered to Our Lord today and the affronts and blasphemies that will greet Him five days hence on Good Friday! Let us learn these three things from the great lesson taught us by Our Lord on Palm Sunday. First, to be content to rely not upon man, but upon God alone for consolation and the witness of our sorrows and sufferings. Second, to detach ourselves from earthly possessions, which often come at our soul's cost. Third, to set no store by earthly greatness, notice, fame, or applause. "For after all these things do the heathens seek" (Matthew 6:32/DRV).

The TRADITIO Network has now been furnishing information about all facets of traditional Roman Catholicism, answering questions both privately and publicly, since 1992, longer than any other traditional site on the Internet. When we started, even the Vatican site didn't exist! We wish that we could show you all of the personal letters we have received from troubled souls who have found here clear, traditional, and honest answers to their questions. Thousands of these have reverted or converted to the traditional Roman Catholic Faith as a result. Our work has always been done free of charge, but at this time of year, we like to remind you, particularly if you have benefited personally from the TRADITIO Network, to remember to make a donation to TRADITIO as part of your almsgiving at this time of year. You may most easily make a donation to TRADITIO's work by using the convenient Make a Donation box on this page.


St. John Schola Volume IX
It is most unfortunate that many traditional Catholics do not have access to the Solemn Rites of Holy Week and Easter in the fully-traditional rites before they were "modernized" in 1956. Even some of the so-called "traditional" groups scandalously use the "modernized" version instead of the traditional rites going back to the early Church. Fortunately, the St. John Schola has made available to the traditional Catholic faithful these significant rites on MP3. For further information, click on the TRADITIO Network's Gregorian Chant department for Volume IX of that Gregorian schola's recordings of Holy Week and Easter. For you traditional Catholics who do not have the opportunity to attend these singular rites in person, at least you can participate in them spiritually through these recordings. Do not lose the opportunity. These rites are an essential part of your traditional Catholic Faith.


These three days -- Maundy Thursday, Good Friday, and Holy Saturday -- are the most sacred in the entire liturgical year. For this 72-hour period, the Church, and we, meditate upon the truths most central to our Roman Catholic Faith: the Passion, Death, and Resurrection of Our Lord. The drama of these days is transfixing as we hear the various Evangelists' versions of the treachery of the Church establishment (Annas, Caiphas, the Sanhedrin), the abandonment of Christ by the first pope (the three denials of Peter) and the Apostles, the Faith beginning to touch the Gentiles (Pontius Pilate, the centurion Longinus), and the small number who stood by Christ in the end (the Marys and St. John). The liturgy of these days is the most ancient in the Church. Much is preserved from the very time of the Apostles, including the use of Greek in the Good Friday service. Up until a few hundred years ago, these were Holydays of Obligation, and no Catholic would think to miss them. Traditional Catholics should make even heroic efforts to be present at these solemn rites, in their Traditional Catholic Latin form, the ancient form that existed before 1956. Those who do not have access to the traditional Latin rites should take ample time during this period to read the solemn rites in their missals, listen to the marvelous chant appointed for these days available on recordings, perform the Via Crucis (Stations of the Cross), read the Passions in Scripture, pray the Seven Penitential Psalms, and engage in other such practices.

Child-Protection Commission Presbyter Resigns, Charging that Francis-Bergoglio Is Perpetrating a Fraud
Simultaneously, New Zealand Child Victims Have Accused Bergoglio of Ignoring Their Pleas in a Cover-up

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Hans Zoller

Angry Presbyter Hans Zollner
An International Expert on Paedophile Crimes
And Member of Francis-Bergoglio's
"Child Protection" Commission
Has Resigned in Protest
Zollner Has Charged Bergoglio
With a Lack of "Responsibility, Compliance
Financial Accountability, and Transparency"
In Essence, He Has Called Bergoglio a Fraud
For Doing Nothing but Trying to Cover-up
Rampant Paedophile Crimes by His Newclergy
With a Never-Ending Stream of Meaningless Verbiage

Francis-Bergoglio is being hit from all sides these days for failing to do anything about continuing rampant sex crimes against children perpetrated by His Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters. A leading presbyter member of Bergoglio's own Newpontifical "Child Protection" Commission resigned on March 29, 2023, in protest, charging that Bergoglio is perpetrating a fraud with the Commission, which is simply window-dressing to make it appear that Bergoglio is actually doing something, whereas he is in reality doing nothing.

The charges, even more surprisingly, came from a fellow Modernist heretic Newjesuit, presbyter Hans Zollner, regarded as an "internationally renowned expert in protecting children and vulnerable adults from clerical sex abuse." Zollner charged Bergoglio with a lack of "responsibility, compliance, financial accountability, and transparency."

Almost simultaneously, on March 27, 2023, the Survivors' Network of Those Abused by Pr[esbyters], the leading worldwide organization that works for justice for child victims of Newchurch's paedophile Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters, charged that Bergoglio has persistently since September 2022 ignored their pleas on behalf of New Zealand child victims. The organization claimed that Bergoglio is perpetrating a cover-up of a situation out of control in New Zealand (and elsewhere), stating in an open letter: "Victims and survivors remain without justice and healing, abusers [sex criminals] remain in ministry, children remain at risk, and your Church continues to be brought into disrepute by such an unjust system." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Radio New Zealand.]

Traditional Catholics, from the very beginning of the Francis-Bergoglio's Newpapacy, we were one of the first to made the same charge. It is clear that Bergoglio tries to cover up his Newchurch reality with a never-ending stream of meaningless verbiage, which is never carried out in practice. Now he's losing his own previous supporters and stoking the denunciation of those who have figured out his fraudulent "game." The news services continue to be filled with daily reports of Newchurch's continuing sex crimes against children. And Bergoglio has done nothing to stop it.
