Two Newchurch Presbyters Were Expelled because They Didn't Like the New Order Mess
As Newchurch's Pogrom against the Clueless Neocon/Pseudo-traditionalists Continues Unabated

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Our Lady of Lourdes Newparish

The Pastor and Vicar
Of Our Lady of Lourdes Newparish
Were Overheard "Denigrating"
The Fake New Order Mess of 1969
Thus, They Have Been Fired
And Their Newchurch Shut Down
Along with the "New Latin Mess" of 1962
Which Is Not the Traditional Latin Mass
But a Corrupt Version of It
Used to Hoodwink Unsuspecting
Neocon/Pseudo-traditionalist Newchurchers

One thing is clear about Newchurch. If you advocate homosexuality, lesbianism, transsexuality, and bigamy, the apostate Newpopes love you. If you dare to say a bad word against the fake (invalid) New Order Mess of 1969, off with your head! The Newparish pastor and vicar of Our Lady of Lourdes Newchurch in Park Hills, Kentucky, were overheard "denigrating" the New Mess as "irrelevant." They quickly found themselves fired on January 25, 2024, and their Newparish shut down indefinitely. The Newparish had been the site of a Half New Order Vatican II New Latin Mess of 1962, which is most certainly NOT the Traditional Latin Mass.

The local Newbishop canceled the New Latin Mess as well, in accordance with Francis-Bergoglio's directive. The local Newbishop said that he had the backing of all the local Newchurch officers and Newbishops and has shut down Our Lady of Lourdes completely "for the foreseeable future." Well, at least there won't be any fake Messes and "sacraments" there to continue to confuse people.

But the once-garrulous rector and vicar have wasted no time bending the knee to Newbishop John Iffert instead of fighting. But these "New Latin Mess" people are all talk and no action. It is the same with Newcardinal Ray "Bully" Burke, Newbishop Joseph Strickland, Newbishop Athanasius Schneider, Newarchbishop Carlo Vigano, and the rest of the Newchurch Neocon/Pseudo-traditionalists prattlers. If they were serious, they would get out of anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order entirely and away from its apostate Newpopes. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, when will the Neocon/Pseudo-traditionalists learn their lesson and get out of the Newchurch of the New Order led by its apostate Newpopes? It must be perfectly obvious by this time to these clueless people, who incomprehensibly still bend the knee to the Newpopes, that Newchurch is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church and the Newpopes are not Catholic popes, any more than is the Lutheran Church and the arch-heretic Martin Luther. The Neocons' grave sin of complicity with apostasy can certainly not be excused any longer by ignorance.

Newchurch Is Considering Slashing Its Newseminaries in the U.S. down to just Five
In the Last Fifteen Years the Number of Newseminaries Has Plummeted by 70 per Cent

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Inside of an Abandoned Newseminary
After Several Young Newseminarians
Were Sexually Assaulted
By Newchurch's Newcardinals and Newbishops
St. Joseph's Seminary, as Well as Many Others
Were Shut down and Abandoned
In the United States 70 per cent of Newseminaries
Were Shuttered Forever in the Last Fifteen Years
Now the Leading U.S. Newcardinal
Wants to Consolidate the Remaining 53
Into just Five Regional Newseminaries
As the Apostate Newchurch of the New Order
Founded at the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965)
Sinks into Deserved Oblivion

In August 2023 the leading Newcardinal in the United States openly called for further slashing of the number of Newchurch seminaries. Timothy "Laughing Cow" Dolan honestly admitted that the number of young men wanting to be associated with Newchurch, which is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church, and with its open apostasy from the Catholic Faith and its continuing involvement in its Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, had tanked. He said that Newchurch was not getting "sufficient return on its investment."

Already many Newserminaries in the United States and around the world have been shut down. Dolan also admitted that donations to Newchurch's seminaries have dried up because of open apostasy and continuing moral scandals. In 2024 there are 53 Newchurch seminaries in the United States, a 70 per cent drop from 2009, when there were 189 Newseminaries. Dolan is proposing slashing that number to five regional Newseminaries. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Our Sunday Visitor.]

Traditional Catholics, Dolan basically threw up his hands, as Newchurch is now paying the price for its apostasy from the Catholic faith and its immorality. There are now too few Newseminarians. There are no priests to teach, as Newchurch stopped ordaining priests in 1968 when it adopted a Protestantized New Ordinal that merely "installs" presbyters (ministers) like the Protestants "to preside over the assembly of the people." Dolan acknowledged the devastating impact that Newchurch's continuing Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust has had, which involves the highest Newclergy, like the infamous Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick, in sex crimes against young Newseminarians. And for being sexually assaulted, Newseminarians pay an average of 50,000 USD for tuition, room, and board. No wonder intelligent young men stay as far away from Newchurch as they can!

Newchurch in Belgium Is Overwhelmed with Demands for "De-baptism"
After Francis-Bergoglio Approved "Gay Unions" and the "Blessing" of Sodomite "Couples"

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Debaptism Certificate

Countries in Europe Are Being Overwhelmed
With Demands for "De-baptism"
Sparked by Francis-Bergoglio's Approval
Of "Gay Unions" and the "Blessing"
Of Sodomite "Couples"
There Is also Disgust
At Newchurch's Continuing Great Sex
& Embezzlement Holocaust
Newchurch Is Being Forced
To Issue "De-baptism" Certificates
Many Newchurch "Baptisms"
Which It Now Calls "Initiations"
Aren't Valid Anyway
Because of Defect of Form

Newchurchers in increasing numbers are demanding to be "de-baptized," i.e., removed from Newchurch registers. Actually, Newchurch doesn't even call them "baptisms" anymore, but "initiations," as if the individuals were being initiated into a college fraternity or the Freemasons. In any case, many of these "baptisms" aren't even valid because Newchurch presbyters are using invalid (fake) "woke" forms, not the Trinitarian form specifically required by Christ, as documented in Scripture (Matthew 28:19).

Newchurch has tried to refuse the numerous demands, but on December 19, 2023, the Belgian government is requiring Newchurch to expunge the "initiations." Ireland, France, Slovenia, Germany, and other European Union countries have also received numerous requests for "de-baptism." It seems that the demands have been sparked by Francis-Bergoglio's approval of "gay unions" and the "blessing" of sodomite "couples. There is also disgust at Newchurch's continuing Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic news sources.]

Traditional Catholics, Newchurch in Belgium has admitted that it has seen a sharp rise in the number of people demanding to be recorded as “de-baptized.” A stunning 5,237 such demands were made in 2021, up from 1,800 in 2019. In Germany a record 522,821 people formally left Newchurch in 2022. Statistics since the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), but particularly since 2000, show Newchurch members walking out and forcing the closure of Newchurches around the world. Remaining Newchurches are not infrequently reduced to congregations of a dozen or fewer, similarily to the (Anglican) Church of England.

Francis-Bergoglio's New Prefect of the New Order Faith Continues under Fire
For Two Pornographic Books that He Wrote, Known to Bergoglio

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Francis-Bergoglio & Victor Fernandez

The Kiss of Death
Francis-Bergoglio's Appointee
As Prefect of the New Order Faith
Has Been Continuing under Fire
As a Pornographer
He Authored Two Books
Personally Known to Bergoglio
In Which Lurid and Prurient Texts
Are Pandered to a Teenage Audience
Bergoglio Is Nevertheless Attached at the Hip
To Fernandez because Bergoglio Is a Bad Writer
And Fernandez Writes His Encyclical Letters
And Decrees for Him

Francis-Bergoglio's intimate, Victor Fernandez, whom he installed in September 2023 as Prefect of the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith and made a Newcardinal, has been continuing under fire. Fernandez is Bergoglio's catspaw, a front man for Bergoglio himself, as in the issuance of the highly controversial decree "Fiducia supplicans," which encourages "blessing" of sodomite couples, "gay marriage (unions)," and bigamist access to the fake (invalid) Novus Ordo cookies and Kool-Aid.

Bergoglio had full knowledge that Fernandez had published two books that have been denounced as pornographic. In 1995 Fernandez wrote Heal Me With Your Mouth: The Art of Kissing, containing lurid passages, which Fernandez defended as "spiritual." In 1998 he went on to write La Pasión Mística: Espiritualidad y Sensualidad [Mystical Passion: Spirituality and Sensuality] containing pornographic and blasphemous descriptions of sex acts, which Fernandez defended as "mystical." These books were directed primarily to a teenage audience.

Newchurchers are not condemning pornography from the prurient pen of the man who is now Bergoglio's intimate and head of New Order doctrine. Fernandez even drags Christ blasphemously into his pornographic descriptions and involves children, implying paedophilia. On January 24, 2024, two children who were sexually assaulted by Newchurch presbyters condemned Fernandez's works as "absolutely nauseating ... similar to what my rapist would say, sort of combining abuse with things of a spiritual nature." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Our Sunday Visitor.]

Traditional Catholics, the apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio was fully aware of his man's books. Fernandez even personally informed him that they would be a problem, but Bergoglio bull-headedly appointed and raised up Fernandez anyway. It appears that Bergoglio is a bad writer and is dependent upon Fernandez to write his encyclical letters and decrees for him. It seems that there is some kind of corrupt co-dependency going on here.

The temporary moratorium on the operation of New Latin Messes of 1962 by the FSSP, contained in an as-yet officially unpublished Decretum of Francis-Bergoglio of February 11, 2022, has apparently expired. The Fraternity of St. Peter, the Neocon/Pseudo-traditional arm of the Newchurch of the New Order, has announced that it has been expelled from Brittany as of September 2023 and from St. Matthieu Church there. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by EN News.]

Traditional Catholics, this FSSP site in France is now added to several others in the United States, in Europe, and around the world already shut down, as Bergoglio's Traditionis custodes decree of July 16, 2021, suppressing the New Latin Mess of 1962, which is most certainly NOT the Traditional Latin Mass, is implemented worldwide in Newchurch. Even the beleaguered FSSP will not escape the shutdowns. Newpopes JPII-Wojtla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and now Francis-Bergoglio have made it clear that the New Latin Mess is to be phased out.

Newarchbishop Expelled by Francis-Bergoglio Is Elected Leader of Italian Newbishops
Essentially Spitting in the Apostate Newpope's Face

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Francis-Bergoglio & Gicomo Morandi

Friends No Longer
Francis-Bergoglio Expelled Newarchbishop Morandi
From Newvatican's Doctrinal Dicastery
For Being "Too Traditional"
But Morandi Turned the Tables on Bergoglio
Italian Newbishops, Tired of Bergoglio's
Marxist/Modernist Heresies
And His Vengeful Retributions
Elected Morandi to Lead Them
Thus Spitting in Bergoglio's Face

Newarchbishop Giacomo Morandi, whom Francis-Bergoglio expelled as Secretary of the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the (New Order) Faith, is alive again, resurrected by Italian Newbishops in a stunning rebuke of the "Dictator" Newpope. Bergoglio claimed that Morandi was "too traditional," but the Newarchbishop was courageous enough to stand up to the apostate Bergoglio. Morandi is now the President of the Episcopal Conference of Emilia-Romagna, in spite of Bergoglio, and Bergoglio's Marxist/Modernist programme was rejected. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic Culture.]

Traditional Catholics, Gicomo Morandi has impressive credentials for a Newchurch bishop. He is a Biblical scholar, served as Vicar General of the Modena-Nonantola Newarchdiocese, and was a professor at Modena’s Institute of Religious Sciences. Many Italian Newbishops find themselves at odds with the "Dictator" (New)pope, not only in doctrine and practice, but in the vengeful retribution that he exacts from those who dare to disagree with his extreme Modernist/Marxist apostasy.

[And Saul, as yet breathing out threatenings and slaughter against the disciples of the Lord, went to the high priest
and asked of him letters to Damascus, to the synagogues: that if he found any men and women of this way, he might bring them bound to Jerusalem.
And as he went on his journey, it came to pass that he drew nigh to Damascus. And suddenly a light from heaven shined round about him.
And falling on the ground, he heard a voice saying to him: Saul, Saul, why persecutest thou me?
Who said: Who art thou, Lord? And he: I am Jesus whom thou persecutest.]

Newvatican Rolls out a New Definition of "Tradition" that Contradicts
Catholic Dogma, as Contained in the Seminal Creed of the Catholic Church

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Pietro Parolin

Francis-Bergoglio's No. 2 Man
Newcardinal Parolin, Secretary of State
Reads Newchurch's Newest Heresy
Rejecting Catholic and Apostolic Tradition
And Substituting the Oxymoronic Concept
Of "Progress in Continuity"
Tradition Does Not Progress
As It Is Handed down by Christ's Apostles
In Fact, there Is Nothing Continuous
In the Newchurch of the New Order
From Catholic and Apostolic Catholicism
This Is the Heresy of Modernism
Condemned by the Popes
Carrying the Penalty of Excommunication

In a stunningly heretical pronouncement on January 15, 2024, Francis-Bergoglio's Secretary of State confirmed the contention of Traditional Catholics that the apostate Newchurch of the New Order, founded in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council to replace the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church, is in fact not the Catholic Church. Newcardinal Pietro Parolin was commenting on the backlash from across Newchurch against Bergoglio for approving the blessing of "sodomite couples" and "gay marriage (unions)."

The dogmatic teaching of the Catholic Church has from Apostolic times, as expressed in the Nicaeo-Constantinopolitan Creed proclaimed every Sunday at the Traditional Latin Mass, been that the True Church of Christ is recognized by four marks: unam, sanctam, catholicam, et apostolicam (one, holy, catholic, and apostolic). Parolin, Bergoglio's No. 2 man, has redefined that dogma to something called oxymoronic "progress in continuity.” Continuity with Sacred Tradition, the second font of Public Revelation cannot include progress. Such a concept violates the Four Marks of the True Church of Christ and confirms that Newchurch is not the Catholic Church.

Josef Ratzinger (who later arrogated to himself the name Benedict XVI) pulled a similar deceit at the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965). He was fond of referring Newchurch doctrine and practice not to Catholic and Apostolic teaching, but to what he termed "heremeutics." This ambiguous word is simply a sesquipedalian term for "interpretation." In other words, it's all a matter of whatever interpretation the speaker wishes -- a classic definition of the condemned Heresy of Modernism, which recognizes no objective Truth. This virulent heresy was vehemently condemned by Pope Pius IX and Pope St. Pius X and penalized with excommunication. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic Standard.]

Traditional Catholics, do not be deceived: Newchurch is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church. Even Newchurch admits this fact now. Bergoglio's new oxymoronic catch-phrase is "progress in continuity." The Vatican II Anti-council had already used the oxymoronic phrase "unity in diversity." In fact, it is indeed moronic. In the Newchurch, as in the condemned Marxism that so many of its adherents embrace to one degree or another, words mean nothing. They are just playthings that Newchurch leaders use to deceive their adherents into following doctrines, morals, and practices that have been consistently condemned in the Catholic Church for 2,000 years. JPII-Wojtyla had his "theology of the body," Ratzinger had his "heremeneutics," and Bergoglio now has his "progress in continuity." All of these terms are embraced by the condemned Heresy of Modernism, whose adherents are condemned by the popes as excommunicates.

Now even Francis-Bergoglio's Own Argentineans Are Spurning Him
His Two Latest Appointees as Newbishop Rejected His Appointments

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Francis-Bergoglio Covers His Face
In Surprise and Shame
As Two Argentineans Whom He Appointed
To Be Newbishops
Rejected His Appointments
It Seems that Newchurch's Great Sex
& Embezzlement Holocaust Has Again
Spun out of Control in Bergoglio's Backyard
As the Crimes against the Woman Involved
Took Place while He Was Newarchbishop
Of Buenos Aires, Argentina

No one has seen anything like it before. Francis-Bergoglio's own Argentineans are refusing his appointment as Newbishops in his own backyard.

On November 21, 2024, Bergoglio appointed Jose Maria Balina to become Newbishop of Mar del Plata, a Newdiocese of over 1,000,000 Newchurchers. On December 13, Balina rejected the appointment before even being installed (Newchurch does not consecrate valid bishops since its adopted of the Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968). So, on the same day, Bergoglio appointed Gustavo Larrazabal to the post, but on January 17, 2024, Larrazabal rejected the appointment as well.

Newvatican was mum about the reasons for the rejections. Apparently, Bergoglio was embarrassed about the revolt in his own native country, as he had just three days before said that he had "full confidence" in Larrazabal. Even Newvatican had to admit that "rumors were swirling" about the double rejection. It seems that Larrazabal was embroiled in a criminal situation with a Newchurch woman, as Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust continued to spin out of control in Bergoglio's own backyard of Buenos Aires, where he was Newbishop before he was elected to become Newpope. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Vatican News.]

Traditional Catholics, the crimes were said to have taken place during that time that Bergoglio was Newarchbishop of Buenos Aires. Naturally, Newchurch officials shut down pronto any investigation of Bergoglio. The Unholy Father himself implicated Unholy activities? It's just too much. Such a thing could finally topple the Newchurch of the New Order and force the Neocon/Pseudo-traditionalists to come face to face with the reality that they have been denying for sixty years: that Newchurch is not the Catholic Church and that its Newpopes are not Catholic popes.

Francis-Bergoglio's Heresy of the Week: No Hell
In Spite of the Fact that Christ Mentions It over Fifty Times in the Gospels

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Francis-Bergoglio Stifles a Sneeze
As He Appears Like a Common Contestant
On an Italian "Talk Show"
He Prattled for an Hour
On His "Blessing" of Sodomite Couples
"Gay Marriage," and Bigamy
He Implicitly Denied that He Is the "Vicar of Christ"
By Essentially Denying the Dogma of Hell
Yet It Was Christ Himself Who Preached on Hell
Over Fifty Times in the Gospels

The apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio is at it again. Week by week he has denied dogmata of the Catholic Faith. On January 16, 2024, he took on Hell. This is not the first time on which he has denied this dogma of the Faith. Let alone not being a true pope, let alone not being a Roman Catholic, Bergoglio is not even a Christian, as it is Christ Himself Who preaches Hell (Hades, Gehenna, etc.) over fifty times in the Gospels.

As Bergoglio fancies himself as a vulgar rock star, not a pope, he appeared on January 14, 2024, like a common contestant on an Italian "talk show," Che Tempo Che Fa, to defend the indefensible: his "blessing" of sodomite couples, "gay marriage (unions)," and bigamist access to the fake (invalid) Novus Ordo cookies and Kool-Aid. For good measure, he took on Hell too in his mindless prattling that went on for an hour. To be sure, he weasel-worded his answer, but the import was clear. In his "personal view" Hell doesn't exist (with the exception of traditionalist-leaning Newchurchers, of course!).

Bergoglio made it clear that he knew the dogma of the Catholic Church, but openly, publicly, and obstinately rejected it. That is the classic definition of heresy, which puts a person outside the Church. Those outside the Church cannot hold any Church office, including the papacy. In this heresy he joined with the infamous Hans Urs von Balthasar, one of the leading Modernist "influencers" of the Vatican II Anti-council, a Newjesuit of course, who was declared under suspicion of heresy by the Holy Office and banned from teaching.

Traditional Catholics, when the talk-show host asked Bergoglio what he is afraid of, Bergoglio certainly didn't name Hell, but, like the U.N. Secretary General he aspires to be, he mentioned only secular political considerations. The truth about Bergoglio and his Newchurch predecessors is so obvious now that the real question is how the Neocon/Pseudo-traditionalists continue to bend the knee to this apostate from the Catholic and Christian Faith.

Which All Traditional Catholic Priests

At the End of Holy Mass

The TRADITIO Fathers have been informed by a local representative of the passing on December 18, 2023, of Fr. Louis Campbell, pastor for over 22 years of St. Jude Shrine, an independent Traditional Catholic shrine in Stafford, Texas, outside of Houston. We excerpt below an edited version of his obituary.

Campbell was originally set for a career in chemistry. He graduated summa cum laude from St. Francis Xavier University in Antigonish, Nova Scotia, but God had other plans for him. In 1961 he was accepted into the Augustinian Seminary, in the order founded by the Prince of the Fathers and Doctors of the Church, St. Augustine of Hippo, and was ordained in 1961.

But by 1996, Fr. Campbell became convinced that something was desperately wrong in the Newchurch of the New Order. True, he should have been smart enough to see it before, but Newchurch had fooled many people smarter than he. He was determined to return to the Traditional Latin Mass and formally left the Augustinian order. For a short time he with the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), a Newchurch group that purports to be "traditionalist" within Newchurch -- as if such a thing were possible. But within four years Fr. Campbell smelled the rat in the FSSP.

By 2001 Fr. Campbell had read a multi-volume work on the apostasy of the Unsaint Newpope JPII-Wojtyla, an outright heretic "oecumenist," who himself participated in Hindu, African, and other pagan rites, culminating in that apostate's founding of the execrable Prayer Meeting of Religious in St. Francis's city of Assisi. Wojtyla permitted a statue of the pagan Buddha to be placed atop the Novus Ordo tabernacle there, an act that outraged many true Catholics around the world. Fr. Campbell then realized that the expulsion of the ancient Roman liturgy of Sts. Peter & Paul from Newparish churches during the 1970s and ‘80s was not the cause of the ecclesiastical crisis that occurred after the Vatican II Anti-council of 1962-1965, but was merely a symptom of the far more profound apostasy of the Newchurch of the New Order.

Fr. Campbell was then fortuitously introduced to St. Jude Shrine near Houston, Texas. That shrine was the first in Texas to have been taken over by foresightful laymen, who had returned exclusively to the True Mass before the corruptions of 1951 engineered by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, who operated under the aegis of Pius XII. From that time Fr. Campbell never looked back. For over 22 years he pastored St. Jude's Shrine and adhered exclusively to the fully Traditional Latin Mass entirely independent of the apostate pretender Newchurch.

In the Resurrection of the Body Spoken of in the Apostles' Creed"

From: Ronald
Resurrection of the Body

The Depiction by Luca Signorelli (1499-1502)
Of the Resurrection of the Body
St. Paul in His Epistle to the Corinthians
Speaks only Broadly about This Dogma
Making It Clear that This Resurrection
Involves Not a Mortal Body
But a Glorified, Incorruptible Body

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

In the Apostles' Creed (Symbolum Apostolorum), where the prayer speaks of "the resurrection of the body," what will become of the incorruptible Saints?


So-called "incorruptibility" is not a requirement of Sainthood and is, in any case, only a temporary phenomenon, which can be ascribed to natural processes of death that vary widely. Only the Blessed Virgin Mary was spared the corruption of the grave, as she was the only immaculate creature through the special grace of God. St. Paul in his First Epistle to the Corinthians (15:42-44) makes it clear that the resurrection of the body involves not a mortal body, which turns into dust, but a glorified, incorruptible body. The Apostle does not give the details, nor should we be fixated on them with some kind of macabre obsession.

Is Newchurch Set to Ruin the Baldacchino over St. Peter's Tomb
And the High Altar of St. Peter's Archbasilica?

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Bernini's Baldacchino

The Baldacchino over St. Peter's High Altar
Engineered by Gian Lorenzo Bernini
Successor to Michelangelo
As the Renaissance's Greatest Artist and Architect
Now Newvatican Is Talking about "Restoring"
The Monumental Work
But after Newchurch's Corruptions
Introducted in the "Reconstruction"
Of Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris
Can Newchurch Be Trusted with Such a Project?

On January 11, 2024, Newvatican announced that it is going to "restore" the baldacchino (conopaeum, or canopy) over St. Peter's tomb and the high altar of St. Peter's Archbasilica. This masterpiece of Renaissance-Baroque art was designed by Gian Lorenzo Bernini (1598-1680) four centuries ago. Bernini was one of great lights of the Renaissance in art and architecture. He also designed St. Peter's Piazza and Colonnade and is considered to be the successor of Michelangelo.

The enormous canopy was commissioned by Pope Urban VIII to loom over the Altar of the Confession above St. Peter's tomb. Its twisted bronze columns extend almost 30 meters high, and it is decorated with gilded angels, cherubs, bees, and laurel branches. Completed in 1633, it took nine years to create. It is, however, regrettable that the bronze for the baldacchino was stolen from Rome’s ancient Pantheon, the greatest domed building in the world, built by the Roman emperor Augustus's son-in-law Marcus Agrippa after he won the great sea battle of Actium, which ended the Roman Civil war and made Julius Caesar's grandnephew Octavian emperor of the Roman World under the title of Augustus.

Traditional Catholics, fears have been expressed that Newchurch may modify the baldacchino in some way, as it is doing with the historic Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. In contrast to true popes of past times, who were often highly cultured and patrons of the arts, the Newpopes are more like barbarians, with little sense of art, architecture, and music. Thus, distrust of Newvatican for this project is well founded.

The Stained Glass Windows of Notre Dame de Paris Are in Danger Again

Stained Glass Windows of Notre-Dame de Paris
From the Devastating 2019 Holy Week Fire
But Modern Destroyers: The French President
In League with the Newchurch of the New Order
Want to Relegate the Historic Windows
To a Musty Museum Basement
And Replace Them with "Contemporary Creations"
The French People and Art Experts
From around the World Have Organized
A Resistance to the Apostate President
And Apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio

Again Newchurch and the Secular Modernists defrauded the honest people who contributed to the restoration of Notre-Dame de Paris, which was seriously damaged by a fire on Holy Monday 2019. The historic cathedral was promised to be put back as it had been, but it wasn't long before "modernizing" changes were announced. The altar and nave were to be reconstructed to ghastly Novus-Ordo style. In December 2023 it was announced that the stunning stained-glass windows that were preserved by Providence from the fire are to be replaced with "contemporary" vulgarities.

French President Emmanuel Macron, with the connivance of the Newchurch of the New Order, has decided without consulting anyone to replace the historic, traditional stained-glass windows with "contemporary creations." He announced in December 2023 that the traditional windows will be relegated to the basement of some musty Gallic museum. Doesn't that sound just like the Vatican II barbarism, which relegated the Holy Mass and Sacraments to some musty corner, never to be used for the purpose for which they were intended?

Many French citizens are livid, as are art experts from around the world, who call Macron-Bergoglio's destructive plans "deliberate vandalism." Within weeks 200,000 signatures were collected against the barbarism and are still pouring in. French citizens have re-formed the Resistance that fought Hitler. Now it will fight the apostate "Catholic" Macron and the apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio. The Resistance fought Macron and Bergoglio before and won on maintaining the original spire. Now they are throwing down the gauntlet again. They may even throw a money-wrench into the Olympics scheduled for Paris in 2024. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by French CitizenGO.]

Traditional Catholics, the French once prided themselves on their culture. No more. At least their secularist leaders have returned to the barbarism in which Julius Caesar found them running around naked when he conquered and then civilized them into civilized Romans.

As He Works to Deconstruct Christian Civilization

What if Newchurch had a Marxist atheist as its Newpope? On January 10, 2024, it became even clearer that Newchurch had attained that "distinction." In his autobiography Francis-Bergoglio had virtually admitted his Marxism. Now he is calling for "dialogue" -- using the Vatican II Anti-council's favorite perverted term -- with Marxist atheists. Bergoglio wants to "bridge Catholic [sic] social teaching and Marxist theory" and blessed the Transversal Dialogue Project, an association of extreme Leftist politicians, to achieve this goal. Having already "blessed" sodomite "couples," "gay marriage (civil unions), and bigamy, he has gone on to bless Marxist atheism -- under the guise of "peace."

Just for good measure, Bergoglio threw in another Marxist term, "solidarity," which he is calling a "moral virtue." Perhaps the apostate Newpope is planning to add this ill-defined term to the traditional Four Cardinal Moral Virtues: prudence, justice, fortitude, and temperance. Even Aristotle and St. Thomas Aquinas knew these. Bergoglio also took a swipe at capitalism, the enemy of Communism, which has brought the West to a height unequaled by other civilizations. Yet Bergoglio himself does not hesitate in the least to take capitalistic money to support his tottering Newvatican regime. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, we are witnessing finally the implosion of the apostate Newchurch of the New Order. Francis-Bergoglio is whirling faster and faster into a religious dementia. There is no way he can be considered a "vicar of Christ." In fact, Christ doesn't even figure into his calculations, which are based in atheistic secular Marxism and the deconstruction of Christian civilization.

Victor Fernandez and Francis-Bergoglio Are Going down the Tubes Together
Bergoglio and His Puppet over Newchurch Doctrine Are Sinking Newchurch

The Pair, after Approving "Gay Marriage"

Bergoglio Is Seeing His "Legacy"
Go up in Flames

Francis-Bergoglio appointed his Marxist/Modernist Argentinean puppet, Newcardinal Victor Fernandez, as the head of the Dicastery for the Doctrine of the (New Order) Faith in September 2023. Fernandez is said to be a doppelganger of Bergoglio's opinions as a fellow Marxist/Modernist and has ghost-written for Bergoglio some of the worst documents, such as the one allowing bigamists to take the Novus Ordo cookie (Amoris laetitia of 2016) and "gay couples" to be blessed (Fiducia supplicans of 2022), as well as a complete Leftist revolution of the Newroman Curia (Praedicate evangelium of 2022). These were all approved explicitly under signature of Bergoglio.

Before he was spirited off to Newrome to become Newpope of the Newchurch of the New Order, Bergoglio had been personally embroiled in Argentina, where he was Newarchbishop of Buenos Aires, in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. Now it appears that Fernandez was equally embroiled -- in pornography. In 1995 he published Heal Me With Your Mouth: The Art of Kissing, a soft-pornographic book. Then, in 1998, he dabbled in hard porn with his book Mystical Passion: Spirituality and Sensuality, in which he delved into "mystical orgasm," featuring a fictitious erotic encounter with Jesus Christ and appeared to approve of adulterous relationships.

The "woke" Newchurch hailed Fernandez's appointment and hailed the Modernist/Marxist initiatives of Bergoglio/Fernandez. But Bergoglio has now run into an ecclesiastical buzz saw for attempting a bridge too far, even for demented Newchurchers, by approving what is tantamount to blessings of "gay marriages." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic news sources.]

Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio is worrying more and more now about his "legacy." He needn't worry. It has gone up in flames. He is mired in backlash. He and his post Vatican II Anti-council predecessors -- Unsaint Paul VI-Montini, Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla, and Benedict-Ratinger -- are now being publicly denounced for the apostates they are. Traditional Catholics have known this truth over the last sixty years. Just more proof that the Neocon Newchurchers are self-deludied, who refused to wake up and see the reality that has been in front of them the whole time since the Anti-council.

Newchurchers Now Openly Promote Pagan Rites with Fake Novus Ordo Cookies
Newchurch Lost the Most Holy Eucharist with the Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968 and New Mess of 1969

Novus Ordo Communion Cookie

The Unsaint Newpope JPII-Wojtyla
Holds up a Fake (Invalid) Novus Ordo
Communion Cookie
Since the New Presbyterate (1968)
And the New Mess (1969) Are Corrupt
Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Fakes
What the Unsaint Is Holding Up
May Actually Be a Pizza Pie!
It Most Certainly Is Not a Sacrament
But a Mockery of God

You know that the Newchurch "eucharist" is fake because Newchurch itself treats it as fake. Newchurch knows the truth; it never calls it the Most Holy Eucharist, but only "eucharist" with a lower-case letter, no definite article, and no "most holy." Nor are there any vaunted "eucharistic miracles" in Newchurch because Newchurch does not have the sacrament. Our Lord himself warned us of this kind of fakery, in which Newchurch engages, as coming from Satan to deceive: For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets and shall shew great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect (Matthew 24:24/DRV).

A widely-followed Peruvian Newchurch "visionary" is openly encouraging Newchurchers to use the fake (invalid) New Order cookie to perform pagan "purification rituals" in their homes to ward off "toxic people." Her direction was widely broadcasted on television on December 27, 2023. Here is the recipe: "Put a [Novus Ordo] cookie in the same cup with holy water and submerge the photo of the [toxic] person." If the presbyter won't give you the cookie, the visionary says to take it in the hand and then remove it from your mouth to take it home. In Peru, 76 per cent of the population claim to be (pagan) Newchurchers.

Two Peruvian presbyters objected to their visionary's direction, but, in the end, it is they who are perpetrating the fraud. In 1968, Newchurch stopped ordaining priests when it adopted a Protestantized New Ordinal, which merely "installs" individuals as "presbyters" (ministers). These have no power to confect a valid sacrament. In 1969, Newchurch adopted a Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New Mess," which is ipso facto invalid (fake). No "eucharist" is ever confected. The matter remains a cookie. Newchurch recipes also include invalidating matter like baking soda, cooking oil, salt, cinnamon, and even raisins. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, the two Peruvian presbyters let the cat out of the bag when they admitted that they know white witches and wizards routinely abuse their cookies, but heretofore always clandestinely and in secret. Now Newchurchers are encouraging pagan practices with the Novus Ordo cookies in public. Traditional Catholics know that Newchurch is fakery: all smoke and mirrors without any sacramental substance or grace whatsoever.

A Reader Asks: "Are the Persistent Rumors True that Bp. Williamson Has Lost It
And "Conditionally" ?Consecrated as a "Traditionalist" Bishop Francis-Bergoglio's Delegate to the U.S.?"

From: Raymond
Francis-Bergoglio & Carlo Vigano

Vigano Is Still a Card-carrying Leader
Of the Newchurch of the New Order
No "Traditionalist" He
Now there Is a Persistent Rumor
That Ex-Neo-SSPX Bishop Williamson
Has Performed a Magic Act on Vigano
By ?Consecrating Him
Without His Having to Swear
The Abjuration of Heresy
Or Undergo Some Years of Retraining

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

There seem to be a lot of rumors buzzing around these days that Bp. Richard Williamson, formerly associated with the Neo-Society of St. Pius X (NSSPX) and then booted out in 2012 by Bernie Fellay, has been ?consecrating a slew of bishops after the questionable manner of Archbishop Thuc, many of whose consecrations turned out to be pretty flawed. Most recently, there have been some reports that Williamson has ?consecrated the ignominious Carlo Vigano, who was a henchman of Francis-Bergoglio as his Newpapal Nuncio to the United States.

I have heard that Vigano had never been consecrated as a bishop, but merely ":installed" in 1992 in the invalid (fake) Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968, which was adopted by Newchurch after the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965). As far as I know, Vigano has never publicly sworn the Abjuration of Heresy from the apostate Newchurch of the New Order. What is going on here?


The important thing to remember is that if the persistent rumors are true, ex-Neo-SSPX Bishop Richard Williamson would be participating in dubious "conditional" rites, the same ruse that Fellay's Neo-SSPX has been pulling on fake Newchurch bishops. If Vigano is sincere (and there is doubt about that, as he was an active participant in Newchurch for decades and Francis-Bergoglio's right-hand man in the United States), he needs to be sent back for at least a few years of education and training in the true Faith.

After that, Vigano may not even come back as a Traditional Catholic bishop. He may flunk the course, change his mind, or be ordained only to one of the Minor Orders. The true Faith of Our Lord Jesus Christ is not some game that can be switched off and on like a light bulb! You can't spin around a fake bishop, tap him on the head with a magic wand, and utter "Abracadabra!" to wipe out all past heresy and complicity in the vilest of Newchurch's crimes. As the old expression goes, you can't make a sow's ear into a silk purse.

So, Vigano joins Joseph Strikland, Athanasius Schneider, Ray "Bully" Burke, Vitus Huonder and the rest of the "too little, too late" group, who even now still affiliate themselves with the apostate Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church. These pusillanimous "prelates" of the New Order typically do nothing when they are in power, enjoying the perquisites of Newchurch. It is only when they are retired or sidelined that they begin to show some Neoconservative/Pseudo-traditionalism -- and not much at that. They don't want to risk the gravy train that Newchurch still provides them.

But the Neocon/Pseudo-traditionalist laity are so desperate to remain part of the Newchurch "club" that they will attach themselves to the dregs of those who didn't have the courage to stand up against the apostate Newchurch and get out of it altogether. Newchurch is like an illegal drug to these people: they become hooked, and can't kick the habit.

Putting these Newchurch clergy to shame are too many dedicated Traditional Catholic priests, who gave their all for Christ, starting in 1963 with the founder of the Traditional Catholic Movement, Fr. Gommar DePauw, who was a peritus (expert) at the Vatican II Anti-council. After a few months what he saw there so scandalized him that he left a prestigious position with the Archdiocese of Baltimore, went independent from the nascent Newchurch, and founded the Catholic Traditionalist Movement in New York City to proclaim the true Catholic Faith on radio, television, and periodicals in the United States and Canada. This he did almost a decade before Archbishop Lefebvre founded his original traditional Society of St. Pius X (SSPX).

In 1963, the courageous Fr. DePauw was "one crying in the wilderness." But now he has turned out to be a prophet. His movement persists to this day in the true Traditional Catholic priests around the world who refuse to bend the knee to the apostate Newchurch, which is much worse even than Martin Luther's Church.

The Shocking Truth about Who Started the March to the "New Mess"
It Was Not John XXIII Who Appointed the Freemason Presbyter Bugnini as Architect, but Pius XII

From: Petrus Romanus, The TRADITIO Network's Roman Correspondent

The Text of the Fake (Invalid) "New Mess"

Instead of the Traditional Latin Mass (1950)
Shockingly, It Was the "Traditionalist" Pius XII
Who Appointed Bugnini to Do His Dirty Work
But It Was John XXIII Who Fired Bugnini
Whom John Called a "Heretic"

It was Pius XII, not John XXIII, who appointed the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini in 1948 to head a Liturgical Reformation Commission, which smacked of Martin Luther. Bugnini wasted no time, in 1951 rolling out the first of his Protestantizing corruptions of the Mass. Bugnini was following the footsteps of corrupting the Holy Mass and Divine Office as early as the 1920s. When Pope Pius XI (r. 1922-1939) found out about the corruptions, he immediately shut them down and demoted the clergy involved.

Here is the history. There was a spirit of rebelliousness afoot in Europe after the devastation of the First World War. Then, to make matters worse, the Russian Revolution came in 1917. The 1920s were a time of moral turpitude, especially in Germany (and, above all, in Protestant Berlin). Following these were the hyper-inflation crisis of the late 1920s, the Great Depression, and the Second World War.

In the 1950s, most people were just relieved that all the crises were over. But, behind the scenes, in the universities, the academies, the seminaries, and the schools, the Marxists laid the groundwork for a new social, spiritual, and cultural revolution. The revolution reached its peak between 1966 and 1971, having been prepared for in the ten to fifteen years before, and was followed by the Age of Decadence in the 1970s.

The Half New Order New Latin Mess of 1962, actually introduced in 1960 from the work under Pius XII, was featured at the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965). But it lasted only two years, after which the Newchurch bishops imposed a vulgar-tongued version. On Saturday, November 28, 1964, everything was still in Latin. On the very next day, however, every word of the Mess was suddenly proclaimed in the vulgar-tongued translations hastily prepared by local bishops.

The very next year, in 1965, the formula for distributing Holy Communion was sacrilegiously shortened from the traditional form to a mere "Corpus Christi," followed by a completely untraditional new communicants' response of "Amen". By 1967, the 1962 New Latin Mess was dumped, and Protestant corruptions had been introduced, such as the Bidding Prayers (you know these: "For all those joyously embracing sodomy, Lord, hear our prayer"). In 1968, the consecratory part of the Mass, the Sacred Canon, which went back to the time of the Apostles, was essentially replaced with three new Protestantized "eucharistic prayers," one of which had been hastily composed on a napkin at a Rome pub. In 1969, the fully Protestant, Masonic, Pagan invalid (fake) New Order Mess was introduced, and all previous versions suppressed by the apostate Unsaint Newpope Paul VI-Montini.

We now have the perspective of sixty years to look back upon. It is clear that all this was a setup. Modernist/Marxist heretics took control of the Vatican II Anti-council while John XXIII was dying of stomach cancer. They destroyed the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church, together with its Mass and Sacraments, its doctrine, and its morals. When will the few remaining Newchurchers wake up and smell the coffee? The truth is that the Neocon/Pseudo-traditionalists are not ignorant puppets. They deliberately don't want to wake up. They want to bury their heads in the sand to enjoy the coffee and donuts after their fake Mess. But as Scripture teaches: "Magna est veritas, et praevalet" [Great is the truth, and it prevails]. (3 Esdras 4:41/V).

Of the Mass, the Sacraments, and Holy Week
Which Culminated in the New Latin Mess of 1962
And the Full-blown New Order Mess of 1969

December 4, 2023, marked the sixtieth year from the promulgation by the first heretical Newpope, Paul VI-Montini, of the first document of the Vatican II Anti-council, the decree that destroyed the Catholic Mass, Holy Communion, and the Divine Office. The decree was titled "Sacrosanctum concilium" (Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy) and also destroyed Catholic Sacred Music, Sacred Art and Sacred Architecture, which were vulgarized beyond belief. Montini would then go on to promulgate all of the other fifteen documents of the Anti-council that deliberately destroyed the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church, replacing it with the apostate Newchurch of the New Order.

None of this was happenstance. Documentary evidence proves that the programme of the Modernists, abetted by secular Communist elements, condemned by Pope St. Pius X (1903-1914), was well under way even as early as the 1920s. The Pope-Saint was able to suppress it for a time, but it burst out again with a vengeance at the Anti-council. Pius XII in the 1950s had even appointed the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini to lead a revolution against the traditional Sacred Liturgy of the Church, which resulted in the first corruptions of the Catholic Mass and the destruction in 1956 of the Catholic and Apostolic rites of Holy Week, which were handed down from the early Church. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, Montini's apostate successors as Newpopes -- JPII-Wojyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio -- went on to suppress every vestige of the True Mass and replace it with the fake (invalid), vulgarized/vernacularized New Order Mess of 1969. Ratzinger even tried to pull a fast one on the ignorant Neocon/Pseudo-traditionalists by resuscitating the New Latin Mess of 1962 on a limited basis -- the same Mess that was being celebrated at the Anti-council! It is most certainly NOT the Traditional Latin Mass which was handed down from the Apostles and the early Fathers and which was canonized in perpetuity by the dogmatic Council of Trent and Pope St. Pius V.

Newchurch of the New Order with Its Newpopes

Is Not the Catholic Church and Has No Authority

As the Newchurch of the New Order continues to topple, yet another Newchurch order has declared bankruptcy. The Franciscan Friars made the announcement on January 3, 2024. The Newfranciscans join the Newjesuits, the Christian Brothers, and the Crosier Fathers & Brothers.

The Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) introduced perversions invaliding the Mass and Sacraments, as well as doctrine and morals, when it founded the Newchurch of the New Order to replace the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church. So deep have Newchurch's perversions gone that it cannot sustain the number of people who have "sued the pants" off of it because of the crimes it has committed, and continues to commit, in its Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust.

The Franciscan Friars have been hit with almost 100 suits for the rape, sodomy, and sexual assault of children. More suits are still being filed, as Newchurch has done nothing really effective to halt them. The Newfranciscan province is involved in not just California, but also Arizona, Oregon, and Washington, and in a number of Native American nations in the Southwest as well on mission to Mexico, Russia, and the Holy Land. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, just last August 2003, the Newchurch archdiocese of San Francisco was inundated with more than 500 lawsuits for paedophile sodomy, rape, and sexual assault, and declared bankruptcy. The Newdiocese of Sacramento announced its bankruptcy in December 2023. The wrath of God has clearly fallen upon the godless Newchurch of the New Order. It is clear that the fall of Newchurch is driving Newpope Francis-Bergoglio daft. He is spinning completely out of control, approving "gay marriage" (he calls it "civil union"), blessing of sodomite couples, and recognizing "transsexuals." Furthermore, he is Novus Ordo-"excommunicating" anyone who dares to call him out for the pretender he is.

As More and More Newchurch Clergy Call Francis-Bergoglio a Fake
His Latest Victim Is an Italian Presbyter Whom He Excommunicated for Calling Him an "Anti-pope Usurper"

Joining a Growing Chorus of Opposition
Italian Presbyter Raymond Guidetti
Proclaimed from the Pulpit
On New Year's Day 2024
That "Mr. Bergoglio Is Not the (New)pope"

And a "Freemason"
Bergoglio's Henchmen Didn't Wait
Even Two Days before Novus-Ordo
"Excommunicating" the Presbyter
From the Newchurch of the New Order
With Its "Fake" Newpope

It seems that before the travesty of Newchurch finally comes to an end, Francis-Bergoglio may excommunicate more and more of his own Newclergy. Newcardinal Ray "Bully" Burke, Newbishop Joseph "the Wimp" Strickland, Newbishop Athanasius "the Prattler" Schneider, and the others have so far fallen under Bergoglio's axe, but the outcry against the man whom the whole world is now increasingly calling The "Dictator" Newpope is getting only worse.

Bergoglio himself admitted in a press conference aboard his Newvatican airplane that many do not believe that he is really a (New)pope. Then, to the shock of the press aboard the plane, he agreed by his silence on the matter. Qui tacet, consentit.

Bergoglio's latest victim is presbyter Ramon Guidetti, of the Newdiocese of Livorno, Italy, who, with the courage of a Saint, declared from the pulpit on January 1, 2024, that "Mr. Bergoglio is not the (New)pope," but an "anti-pope usurper" and a "Freemason." Two days later Guidetti was Novus-Ordo "excommunicated." Italian Newchurchers are not supposed to attend Guidetti's Messes, or they are threatened with "excommunication" too. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]

Traditional Catholics, these Newchurch madmen are so demented that they will "excommunicate" the whole world. Good! They will only be shown up to be the fakes that more and more Newchurch clergy and laity are proclaiming that they are. The problems is that they are sixty years too late. If the Neocon/Pseudo-traditionalists had taken action at the time of the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) -- before the fake "New Mess," before the fake "New Sacraments," before the fake "New Bible," before the fake "New Catechism," and, most recently, the fake "New Blessings" (of Sodomites), they could have saved the true Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church.

This is just what the courageous Saints -- Augustine of Hippo, Basil the Great, Athanasius, the Defender of the Faith, Martin of Tours, and the rest that God gave the Church in the fourth century -- did and routed the heretical Arian popes and bishops. These great Saints saved the Church, but today there are no Saints in the apostate Newchurch. As the Psalmist (13:3/DRV) says: "There is none that doth good, no, not one."

U.S. Newchurchers Are Sick of Newchurch Supporting Illegal Invaders Crossing the Border
They Are Cutting off Donations to "Catholic Charities," and Newcardinal Dolan of New York Is Mad at Them

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Timothy Dolan

Timothy "Laughing Cow" Dolan
Newcardinal of New York
Is Mad at His Newchurchers
Because They Are Not Coughing Up
Enough Money to Support Illegal Invaders
It Seems that the Billion Dollars
His Corrupt "Catholic Charities"
Receives from the U.S. Government
Is Not Enough for Him
But His Newchurchers Are Telling Him
In No Uncertain Terms:
Enough Is Enough

As another sign that Newchurchers are waking up to the fact that they have been fooled by Newchurch into donating money to Leftist crimes came to light when Newcardinal Timothy "Laughing Cow" Dolan, of New York, announced on December 21, 2023, that he was mad that Newchurchers aren't coughing up enough of their inflation-devalued dollars into Newchurch's corrupt "Catholic Charities." That organization has been exposed as involved in scamming Newchurchers for ever-more money when it already receives over 1,000,000,000 USD from the U.S. government.

Newchurchers, like other Americans, it seems, are fed up with all the illegal invaders flooding their streets, homes, and schools, and illegally appropriating public services to which they are not entitled. While the government and "Catholic Charities" puts up the illegals in five-star hotels, many ill American citizens are forced onto the streets. Such activities violate the principles of Justice, one of the Four Cardinal Moral Virtues and one of the attributes of God Himself, as being All Just.

When Dolan tried to take over a Newchurch school for the illegals, his own Newchurchers in that Newparish rebelled and said, "Absolutely not, we will not have them here." Even members of the U.S. Congress have sent Newbishops letters declaring that they are tired of the Newbishops being "hung up" about the illegal invaders and declaring that they are not going to support Newchurch. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Breitbart.]

Traditional Catholics, Dolan indicates that he is tied at the hip to the self-proclaimed "devout Catholic," U.S. President J.R. Biden, who advocates abortion, homosexuality, lesbianism, and transgenderism, as well as violating his presidential oath by destroying the border, which the Universal Doctor of the Church, St. Thomas Aquinas, declares is necessary, even by natural law, for countries to maintain. The demented U.S. Newbishops have even claimed that supporting illegal invaders "is more important that preaching the Gospel." They try to equate helping illegal invaders to helping those who came to the country in earlier legal immigrations. Such a statement is further proof that these Newbishops are merely glorified secular social workers.

The "1962 Mess" Used by the Neo-SSPX and FSSP
Is Most Certainly NOT
The Traditional Latin Mass

In 2007 Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger, a leader of the Modernist heretics at the Vatican II Anti-council, tried to pull a fast one on the Neocon/Pseudo-traditionalists by issuing "Summorum pontificum," which attempted to promote the Modernist "New Latin Mess of 1962" in the Newchurch of the New Order. The 1962 Mess was engineered by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, Chief Architect of the Novus Ordo (New Order), as the final stepping-stone to the full-blown Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New Mess" of 1969, which is the invalid (fake) Mess of Newchurch. The 1962 Mess is most certainly NOT the Traditional Latin Mass.

Many pseudo-traditionalists fell for the ruse and became unwitting agents of the New Order that they professed to hate. Among these are the Newchurch-leaning Neo-SSPX (Society of St. Pius X) and the Newchurch FSSP (Fraternity of St. Peter). But in the ensuing two decades, the truth has become too obvious to deny. In recent years there has been a growing exodus from the 1962 Mess to the fully Traditional Latin Mass (1950) before all the corruptions introduced in the 1950s and 1960s.

Thus, the main international Ordo (Calendar) for the Traditional Latin Mass, produced for many decades by the St. Lawrence Press, has sold out this year for the first time. A reprint is being organized because of the increased demand. Neocon/Pseudo-traditionalists have dumped their 1962 Ordo and adopted the 1950 Ordo and at the same time dumped that corrupted Modernist, Protestantized "New Rite of Holy Week," engineered by Bugnini in 1956.

The St. Lawrence Press produces the best and most complete annual Ordo available, the Ordo Recitandi Officii Divini Sacrique Peragendi [Order of Reciting the Divine Office and Carrying Out the Sacred Rite], entirely in Latin and in the traditional form, following the Rubrics of Pope St. Pius X for the Universal Calendar (Roman Rite) of the Church as amended up to 1950. It contains detailed information about the Mass and Divine Office for each day of the year, which priests and the most devout laypeople use, much more complete in its detail than any calendar can give.

England Is No Longer a Majority Christian Country
As Anglicans, Newchurchers, and Others Walk out in Droves from the "Woke" Sects

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Anglican Bishopesses

Bishopesses and Priestesses
Many of Them Homosexuals
In the Anglican Church
Have Turned the Church of England
Into a Laughing Stock
Anglicans Are Walking Out in Droves
As Are Newchurchers
Church Attendance Has Now Sunk
To Below Five Per Cent
The Church of England Will Likely
Be Disestablished within Ten Years

England, once a more Catholic country than even France, has rapidly fallen to the point that it is now no longer a majority Christian country. Newchurchers and Anglicans are leaving by the droves, as the religiously-pusillanimous Charles III replaces Elizabeth II and priestesses and bishopesses, many of them radical homosexuals. are taking over the Anglican sect, just as Francis-Bergoglio is similarly introducing a "gay-friendly" Newchurch. More infidels and pagans flooding into England from outside now populate the country.

A recent survey showed that Britons are less likely to believe in God than people in almost any other country in the world. Church attendance has now sunk below five per cent of the population. In Newchurch's national Shrine of Our Lady of Walsingham, which used to be run by a pseudo-traditional group, since expelled, the Newclergy are leaving, and the financial stability of the shrine is now in jeopardy. Just a few New Order clergy remain. Pilgrimages have been canceled. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, we have previously predicted that within ten years after the death of Queen Elizabeth II, the Church of England would be disestablished as the official religion of the country. It seems that the end is coming sooner for the Anglicans -- and for the Newchurchers -- than even we predicted.

Francis-Bergoglio's Voting Appointments to the College of Newcardinals Rises
At the Next Newconclave for the Newchurch of the New Order Three-quarters Will Be Bergoglians

From: Petrus Romanus, The TRADITIO Network's Roman Correspondent

As the Master of Ceremonies Declares:
"Exeunt Omnes"
The Next Newchurch Conclave
To Elect a Newpope
For the Apostate Newchurch of the New Order
Will Involve Three-quarters
Appointed by the Marxist/Modernist
Newpope Francis-Bergoglio
Thus Is Dashed Again the Vain Hope
Of the Neocon Newchurchers
That The Next Newpope Will Be More Conservative
In Any Case, Newchurch Is Most Certainly NOT
The Catholic Church

On December 28, 2023, the percentage of Francis-Bergoglio's voting appointees to the College of Newcardinals has risen to 73 per cent. Thus is dashed again the vain hope of the Neocon Newchurchers that the next Newpope for the Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church, will be more conservative.

One of those who lost his vote, Newcardinal Juan Luis Cipriani Thorne, is a member of Opus Dei, which purports to be conservative. What we are seeing in Newrome is a transition from the Protestantism of Newchurch, founded in 1964 to replace the Catholic Church as the "institutional Church," to a new-age paganism for globalism, communism, and "green" pantheism.

By the end of 2024, if we assume that none of the current Newcardinals die or are thrown out, and if we assume that Bergoglio does not appoint any new Newcardinals, the percentage of Bergoglians in the Newcollege will rise to 74 per cent, and the number of voting Newcardinals will fall to 119. As 120 Newcardinals is supposed to be the norm, I suspect that Bergoglio will overfill the Newcollege yet again with his radical apostates.

Meanwhile, Neocon Newcardinals who refuse outright paganism now face a threat of expulsion from the Newcollege. If Bergoglio can deprive Newcardinal Ray "Bully" Burke of both his stipend and his rent-free apartment owing to his mild opposition to Bergoglio, then the next step would be expulsion from the Newcollege. Other Neocon Newcardinals should watch their backs too. Mauro Piacenza will surpass the age of eighty in 2024 and thereby lose his vote anyway. As for Gerhard Muller, Ray Burke, and Robert Sarah, they had better learn to keep their mouths shut, or they won't even have a say in the next Newconclave!

Newchurch Features "Lesbian" Creche Scene
Pastor Cites Francis-Bergoglio His Authority for the "Blasphemy"

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Lesbian Creche

Newchurch's Latest Outrage:
A "Lesbian" Creche
In Which Two Women Are Featured
As the "Mothers" of the Christ Child
The Pastor Gave Francis-Bergoglio
As His Authority
Who Has Approved the "Blessing"
Of Lesbian and Other Homosexual "Couples"

In the Church of Sts. Peter & Paul outside of Naples, Italy, Newchurch rolled out its new "lesbian" creche scene on December 23, 2023, in which two women are featured as the "mothers" of the Christ Child. The pastor of the Newchurch is known for promoting homosexuality. He gave Francis-Bergoglio as his authority, who in the Declaration Ecclesia supplicans (December 19, 2023) approved "blessing" of lesbian and other homosexual "couples."

Even officials of the Italian government denounced the "Bergoglian" creche, saying that it "offends all those who always had respect and devotion for the Holy Family." Others called it "dangerous, as well as shameful and blasphemous..., legitimizing homosexual parenting and surrogacy." 21,000 people have already signed a petition to remove the exhibit. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]

Traditional Catholics, even Italy's Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni got into the act. She is a conservative Newchurcher and is involved with legislation prohibiting surrogacy and promoting Christmas plays and Nativity scenes. Given all the backlash from around the world against Bergoglio's attempt to promote immoral "blessings" for homosexual, lesbian, and transsexual "couples," it may be that he has shot himself in the foot. Already his lieutenant, Victor Fernandez has announced that maybe these "blessings" should not be conducted in countries, as in Africa, where homosexuality is illegal. You think?


Francis-Bergoglio Accused of Dishonoring Benedict-Ratzinger's "Legacy"
Although the Two Were Both Virulent Modernist Heretics, They Were Like Oil and Water, Indicates Biographer

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Francis-Bergoglio & Benedict-Ratzinger

Was the Vaunted Friendship
Between Francis-Bergoglio
And Benedict-Ratzinger
Both Virulent Modernist Heretics
Merely a Ruse, All for Show?
Ratzinger's Biographer Now Says
That since the Ratzinger's Passing
Bergoglio Is Going Hammer and Tongs
To Suppress Ratzinger's Memory
And Expel His Associates from Newvatican

On December 27, 2023, the late Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger's biographer, Peter Seewald, publicly rebuked Francis-Bergoglio because he "erased much of what was precious and clear to Ratzinger." Seewald indicated that while Ratzinger was living in the Vatican Gardens, Bergoglio posed as friendly to the Ratzinger, who was a Modernist leader at the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) and a promoter of the creation of the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Newchurch of the New Order (Ratzinger was no "traditionalist!").

Bergoglio kept claiming that Ratzinger, while alive, was very close, but Seewald points to the brief and cold funeral ceremony that Bergoglio staged for Ratzinger. He said that Bergoglio continued to write nice letters to Ratzinger after his retirement, but implies that these were only for show. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the New Daily Compass.]

Traditional Catholics, since the passing of Ratzinger, Seewald says that Bergoglio has been openly attacking Ratzinger, "stabbing him in the heart." Bergoglio has attacked associates of Ratzinger, like his personal secretary, Newarchbishop Ganswein, whom Bergoglio threw out of Newvatican in disgrace without a word of thanks for his service. Bergoglio also expelled Ratzinger's associates Newbishop Joseph Strickland and Newcardinal Ray "Bully" Burke because they offered a modicum of resistance to Bergoglio's apostate programme.
