Francis-Bergoglio's Newpontifical Delegate Commits the Worst Sin a Priest Can Commit
The Condemned Crimen Sollicitationis Leads to Immediate Expulsion

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Crimen Sollicitationis

Pope John XXIII's Instruction "Crimen Sollicitationis"
Which Provided for Immediate Expulsion of Any Priest
Who Committed This Worst Sin a Priest Can Commit
Francis-Bergoglio's Personal Newpontifical Delegate
Has Resigned after Being Placed Over
An International Lay Organization
That Was Involved with 26 Cases
Of the "Seriously Deviant Acts"
Condemned in the Instruction

Newbishop Michel Dubost, Francis-Bergoglio's personal Newpontifical Delegate to Les Foyers de Charité, an international lay organization, has resigned suddenly on February 14, 2024. The original founder of the corrupt organization had earlier been charged by 23 women with "seriously deviant acts," the crimen sollicitationis, the worst sin that a priest can commit.

In fact, Pope John XXIII had published in 1962 a strong condemnatory Instruction "Crimen Sollicitationis" on this crime, which pertained even to Eastern-rite priests. The crime leads to immediate expulsion of the perpetrator. (When John XXIII was pope, the Catholic Church had priests. Since Newchurch replaced the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church and stopped ordaining priests, instead invalidly "installing presbyters" like Protestant ministers, there have been no priests in Newchurch. In 1973 Newchurch did away with the Sacrament of Penance and replaced it with an fake, non-sacramental rite.)

Because of a sensitive nature of this crime, we quote the definition in Latin: "Crimen sollicitationis habetur cum sacerdos aliquem poenitentem, quaecumque persona illa sit, vel in actu sacramentalis confessionis ... ad inhonesta et turpia sollicitare vel provocare...." The Instruction details a wide list of actions that fall within the crime, even a nod (nutus). The crimes of the Foyers organization involved 26 girls aged 10 to 14 years who were attending a Newchurch school in France. Dubost's predecessor, Newcardinal Jean-Pierre Richard, who preceded Dubost, was banned because a paedophile crime against a 14-year-old girl. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]

Traditional Catholics, the perversion and deviancy of this Newchurch organization is beyond belief. The co-foundress of the Foyers organization, who claimed to be the beneficiary of a "eucharistic miracle," was found by a Newchurch commissioner to have been a liar (so much for Novus Ordo "eucharistic miracles"!) This co-foundress even deceived Bergoglio into a fake declaration of her "heroic virtues." So the whole affair, involving Francis-Bergoglio and the Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid and fake non-sacramental "Reconciliation Rite," was just one big lie. Just more evidence that no true Catholic can have anything to do with the corrupt Newchurch of the New Order and its Newpopes.

Newchurch Organization Charged by the Texas Attorney General as a Crime Syndicate, Not a Charity
Annunciation House Has Been Smuggling Children Who Are Illegal Invaders and Operating Drug Dens

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Annunciation House

Children Loiter on the Street Corners
Around Annunciation House
A Newchurch Organization
The Texas Attorney General's Office
Has Shut down the Organization as a Sham
That Fronts for Leftist Newchurch Initiatives
Such as Child Smuggling and Drug Dens
So-called "Catholic Charities"
Had Previously Been Charged
With Similar Crimes

Any supposed charitable organization with the word "Catholic" in its name should be avoided like the plague. Case after case shows that, far from operating as true charities, they are front groups for Leftist Newchurch initiatives, such as child smuggling and drug dens. That is what the evidence now clearly shows.

The Texas Attorney General's Office on February 20, 2024, filed suit against Annunciation House, a Newchurch organization that purports to be a "migrant ministry" in El Paso. To start with, the "clients" of Annunciation House are not migrants at all, but illegal invaders streaming across not only the U.S. border, but also Canadian, Mexican, and other borders.

The Attorney General's Office stated that Annunciation House is not the only criminal organization operating under the aegis of Newchurch. Such organizations, known as NGOs (Non-governmental Organizations) facilitate "astonishing horrors" at the border. One of the organizations that came to the defense of Annunciation House is Newchurch's giant "charitable" arm, so-called Catholic Charities, which itself has previously been charged with criminal violations. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Crux News Service.]

Traditional Catholics, the Texas Attorney General has courageously exposed this Newchurch "charity" sham as in fact "facilitating illegal entry to the United States, alien harboring, human smuggling, and operating a stash house." Annunciation House's refusal to provide its business records, and its license to operate has been revoked. Appointment of a receiver to liquidate the Newchurch organization's assets is pending. One can only hope that "Catholic Charities" and other shams are similarly shut down soon after.

"Church Buildings Are Being Demolished" Right and Left in Germany
Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust Has Hit Germany Hard, as All of Europe

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
German Newchurch Demolished

The Handful of Newchurches Left
Watch Their German Newchurch
Being Demolished by the Wrecking Ball
The Newchurch of the New Order
And Its Barbarian Newpopes
Want to Destroy Churches
Not Save Them
Newchurchers Are Walking Out on Bergoglio
Because They Are "Bitter and Disappointed"
At the Apostate Newpope
And His Newchurch Predecessors

If you thought that the United States is alone in the widespread shutdown of Newchurches, you'd be dead wrong. Newchurches are being dismantled across the world. On February 21, 2024, the German (New)bishops' Conference reported that Europe's largest country shuttered 650 Newchurches, mostly historic ones, in just the last two decades. In the last five years, an average of some 30 Newchurches have been shut down every year, and the pace is quickening. "Church buildings are being demolished" right and left, the Conference reported.

In addition to demolishing and turning over the Newchurches over to secular uses, such as pubs and rock-climbing centers, some of them are being sold off to schismatics, heretics, and infidels. Newchurch is being affected by these shutdowns far more than the Protestant sects. Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust has hit Germany hard, as it has hit many other European countries. Europeans have had it with Newchurch and its pretender Newpopes. It was not uncommon in the past for even Newparishioners to "go to the barricades" to oppose the closure of their churches, but very few care anymore. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Deutsche Welle.]

Traditional Catholics, when Newparishioners of the Church of the Holy Cross tried to save their Newchurch and wrote to Francis-Bergoglio to help them, they were given the cold shoulder. The apostate Newpope wants to shut down Newchurches, not save them. But when atheist transsexuals recently wanted to take over St. Patrick's Newcathedral in New York, Newvatican's message was: No problem! The result has been "bitterness and disappointment" on the part of Newchurch toward Newchurch and its barbarian Newpopes. That is why Newchurchers around the world are "debaptizing" themselves and getting out of Newchurch and away from its Newpopes as quickly as possible.

The Commission Charged Him

On February 15, 2024, Francis-Bergoglio's own Commission on the Protection of Minors in (New)church turned on the apostate Newpope and fingered HIM HIMSELF as the root cause of the problem. They charged him with opposing any reforms to stamp out crimes against children by his paedophile Newclergy, from his presbyters up to his Newcardinals. They accused him of a "continued pattern of backing accused abusers."

The Commission went on to report that it is not just unconcern on his part or administrative opposition. No, Bergoglio is in fact opposed to reform in any shape or form. They particularly found that he has been "turning a blind eye" to assaulted Newchurch "nuns," who are being forced to have abortions because of being raped by presbyters. The Commission found that in five years Bergoglio has essentially done nothing but talk. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Guardian.]

Traditional Catholics, the most shocking part of the Commission's report found that money from Newparish collections plate has been used to finance abortions of Newchurch "nuns" raped by presbyters. Francis-Bergoglio's hypocrisy with the lives of children is unconscionable. Meanwhile, the papolator Newchurchers, including the Neocon/Pseudo-traditionalists, who are thereby accomplices in these paedophile crimes, merely click their tongues and give the pretender Newpope a pass.

Francis-Bergoglio's Pro-Transsexual Policies Take Hold in Newchurch
Almost All Newchurch "Women's" Colleges Now Accept Men "Identifying as Women"

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Francis-Bergoglio & Transsexual Man-Woman

Francis-Bergoglio Hooks up
With a Transsexual Man-Woman
His Immoral Pro-transsexual Policy
Has Spread to Newchurch's
"Women's" Colleges around the World
Because of Bergoglio's Depraved Teachings
Some of These Newchurch Women's Colleges
Even Dare to Cite "Catholicism" as the Justification
For Their Immoral Policy
But in No Way Is Newchurch the Catholic Church

Newchurch women watch out! Your once-Catholic women's colleges are now welcoming male invaders to your dormitories, your classrooms, even your showers. While the pretender Newpope Francis-Bergoglio makes statements in public against transsexualism and "gender ideology," in private he has scheduled weekly Newpapal meetings with "them" (is that the right pronoun?) and has secretly encouraged admission of males as women at Newchurch "women's colleges," and now that admission policy has become the Newchurch norm, according to a February 16, 2024, report.

Five of the eight Newchurch women’s colleges in the United States admit their pro-transsexual admission policy on their official web sites. Two others admit to a secret pro-transsexual admissions policy not published on their web sites. Only one refuses to admit males as women. These colleges, to call themselves "Catholic," as they do, have to have the explicit permission of Newchurch. Therefore, the local Newbishops and Newvatican can't claim that they don't know the truth.

When St. Mary's of Notre Dame, Indiana, was exposed in November 2023 to be secretly admitting men as female students, a furor arose, in which prominent alumnae pulled their donations. Faced with a financial disaster, Newbishop Kevin Rhoades reversed his decision, but is being monitored for possible recidivism in the future (isn't that just like those spurious unconsecrated Newbishops of Newchurch?)

Some of these Newchurch women's colleges even dare to cite "Catholicism" as the justification for their immoral policy. So far has the Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church, now corrupted the morals of its members. Sacred Scripture makes it clear: "He created them male and female" (Genesis 5:2/DRV), but these "Catholic women's" institutions' definition of a woman is anyone who identifies as a "woman," including "cisgender women," "transgender women," intersex individuals who do not identify as male, gender-fluid, and non-binary individuals" [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, Newchurch's Neocon/Pseudo-traditionalists stand by approving by their silence such immorality and corruption in their apostate Newchurch. What can a true Catholic do? Archbishop Fulton Sheen (1895-1979) was well known for his many books, radio and television appearances, and popular preaching. While teaching at the Catholic University of America for nearly 25 years and dealing with students, he noted with deep concern what was happening in Catholic education. Thus, he recommended the following:

Presbyter Who Wrote Book Exposing Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch as Crawling with a "Powerful Gay Mafia"
Has Been Expelled and Bullied by Bergoglio for "Telling the Truth"

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Matthew Despard

Francis-Bergoglio "Bullies and Silences"
The "Whistleblower" Presbyter, Matthew Despard
Who Wrote a Book Exposing Bergoglio's Administration
As Crawling with a "Powerful Gay Mafia"
After Expelling His Presbyter
Bergoglio Tried to Extortion on Him
Despard Says that He Will Not Apologize
For "Telling the Truth"
Newchurch, He Says, Operates by the Mafia
Code of Silence (Cover-up) Known as "Omerta"

Our Lord tells us that He is the "Truth" (John 14:6/DRV), but his purported "vicar" is an enemy of the truth. So says Scottish Presbyter Matthew Despard, the "Whistleblower Presbyter," who was expelled from his Newparish and has now publicly spoken out and told how he has been "systematically bullied and silenced" by Bergoglio for exposing his administration as crawling with a "powerful gay Mafia." Despard is far from the first witness to have revealed this truth. Moreover, Bergoglio tried extortion on his presbyter. He was told that he could return to his Newparish if he withdraws his book from circulation and makes a public apology.

But presbyter Despard has guts. He says that he is not sorry for "telling the truth." He wrote his book shortly after Scottish Newcardinal Keith O'Brien became entangled in a sordid case involving four presbyters. One of these testified that Newchurch has silenced any discussion about its criminal clergy and operates by the Mafia code of "omerta," by which crimes are covered up, sometimes under penalty of death. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Sunday Mail.]

Traditional Catholics, presbyter Despard has taken his appeal to the Roman Rota, but he must know that any appeal from Bergoglio will be fruitless. The whole Newvatican court system is rigged. Francis-Bergoglio pulls all the strings and can overrule any decision made. Christ, "the Truth," would spit at Bergoglio and his corrupt "justice system"!

Is Pope Pius XII Responsible for the Destruction of St. Benedict's Historic Monastery
On Monte Cassino because of His Negligence during World War II?

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Pius XII

De Mortuis Nil nisi Bonum?
Troubling New Evidence Has Come to Light
From the Vatican "Secret" Archive
That the Negligence of Pius XII
May Have Precipitated the Carpet Bombing
Of St. Benedict's Historic Monastery
On Monte Cassino during World War II
Pius XII Did Nothing to Stop It
Though He Could Have Intervened
The American General in the Area
Was Strongly Opposed to the Bombing
But His British Superior
Without Pius XII Intervening, Was Dead Set
On Destroying the Catholic Monastery

Pope Pius XII (r. 1939-1958) is often charged with complicity in the World War II "Holocaust," but for Catholics, even more troubling evidence has recently come to light that Pius XII may actually have been responsible for the destruction of the historic monastery founded by the "Father of Monasticism," St. Benedict of Nursia (480-547). The monastery is known as Monte Cassino from the mountain 130 kilometres southeast of Roman on which the Saint located it to separate himself and his followers from the fall of the Western Roman Empire in 476.

New evidence discovered in the Archivum Secretum Apostolicum Vaticanum, commonly known as the Vatican Secret Archive -- though the Latin "secretum " here does not mean "secret" in the modern sense, but rather "separated" or "divided" -- leads to the conclusion that Pius XII could have averted the bombing by the Allies in World War II, who devastated the original Benedictine Monastery, situated on Monte Cassino.

Thinking in error that German troops had taken positions within the monastery, the Allies bombed the sacred monastery and in the process killed 250 of the 1,000 Italian civilians who were taking refuge there on February 15, 1944, exactly eighty years ago. American general Mark Clark was under orders by British General Sir Harold Alexander, Commander-in-Chief of the Allied Armies in Italy, to bomb the monastery essentially out of existence, even though Clark and his staff argued with Alexander against the bombing as "not a military necessity." Clark openly called the bombing a "tragic error."

Although both the Allies and the Germans had promised Pius XII that the monastery would be considered neutral territory, the document discovered in the Vatican Archive indicated that Pius XII failed to hold the Germans to that promise. In fact, Pius XII was known not to take bold pro-active action during the war, but to use so-called "telegraph diplomacy," which allowed combatants to violate neutrality agreements and merely lodge "official protests" after tragedies occurred. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Crux News Service.]

Traditional Catholics, over the years, as more documentary evidence becomes available, it appears more and more that Pius XII may have been feckless when it came to taking bold action to preserve the Catholic Church and its heritage. One result of his faintheartedness during World War II may have been the destruction of the famous first Benedictine monastery that was his responsibility, not to speak of the deaths of the 250 innocent Catholic civilians who were relying on him to keep the monastery safe as a neutral sanctuary.

On February 15, 2024, Timothy "Laughing Cow" Dolan, Newcardinal of New York, desecrated St. Patrick's Newcathedral for the funeral of the atheist transsexual drag queen Cecilia Gentili. The "event" (we can't even call it a "service," let alone a Mass) featured a picture of the deceased with the words "whore" and "transvestite" displayed by the altar. During the "event" the words of the "Ave Maria" were changed to replace "Mary" with "Cecilia.

The "event" was presided over by one of Dolan's presbyters, who deliberately kept Gentili's atheism "under wraps." Gentili had previously been a felon imprisoned on drug-possession charges at the notorious Rikers Island prison. Through the Novus Ordo funeral "liturgy," the presider-presider referred to the transsexual Gentili with feminine pronouns and described the man as "our sister." During the Novus Ordo-concocted "Prayers of the Faithful," Gentili was approvingly referred to as the "Mother of Whores."

Newchurchers may be surprised to learn that it wasn't Francis-Bergoglio who appointed Dolan as a Newcardinal in the Newchurch of the New Order. Rather, it was the leader of the Modernist heretics at the Vatican II Anti-council, who never abjured his heresies as Newpope: Josef "The Nazi Youth" Ratzinger. Dolan has set up ten "sodomite-friendly"Newparishs in the city. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by U.K. Daily Mail.]

Traditional Catholics, there is nothing Catholic in the Newchurch of the New Order, as is daily proven. Newchurch is a fraud fronting as the Catholic Church, which it most certainly is NOT. There is so much wrong about all of this that we will dispense with trying to detail the blasphemies, idolatries, and sacrileges involved. You can certainly figure them out for yourselves and regale your Newchurch family and friends with the reality of the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order, whose doorstep no one considering himself a true Catholic can ever cross without peril to his immortal soul.

Newvatican's CFO Reports that Newvatican Is Technically Bankrupt
And Faces a Worldwide "Fire Sale" in Five Years

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Newvatican's CFO Reports:
Newchurch Is Crashing and Burning
Its Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust
And Other Factors Have Led
To a Significant Decline in Donations
While Maximino Cabellero Ledo Predicts
That Newvatican's Current Death Spiral
Will Lead to a Worldwide "Fire Sale"
Particularly as Francis-Bergoglio
Is Blowing the Wad on Synods and Junkets

Newvatican's CFO, Maximino Caballero Ledo, head of the Secretariat for the Economy, gave Francis-Bergoglio a belated valentine on February 15, 2024, but not one that Bergoglio wanted. Ledo reported that Bergoglio's Newvatican is technically bankrupt and is losing some 50,000,000 USD each year. That would mean closing 43 of the 53 Newvatican departments. Ledo is not the first to have said this. Previous CFOs have said the same thing, but Newvatican's income has continued to plummet every year.

Because of Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust and mass defections from Newchurch, contributions to Peter's Pence too, which itself has been embroiled in financial crimes, have tanked. The United States and Germany have particularly cut back their contributions because of the Newpopes' heresies, Bergoglio's sodomite blessings being only the latest. Bergoglio has made it clear that he hates the United States, and Americans have reciprocated by cutting substantially back on donations to his regime. The drop in income at Newvatican has been estimated at around 20 per cent per annum.

Newchurch closures around the world have scandalized the former faithful and have turned them away completely from the Newchurch regime. Newvatican tourism isn't what it used to be. Bergoglio even began a program of relegating Newcardinals to their own devices for housing -- except for his favorite people. More and more work is piling up on fewer and fewer employees. Morale is bad and leading to experienced people quitting.

It doesn't help that Bergoglio plays favorites with departments. He generously funds the Dicastery for Communications, so that his non-stop heresies can be broadcasted around the world on radio, television, shortwave, newspaper, and magazines. He funds this dicastery to the tune of 40,000,000 USD, one of the two top sources of the deficit. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Vatican News.]

Traditional Catholics, one of Newvatican's own financial officials admitted: "People like to imagine the (New)vatican is 'too big to fail,' but the deficit is totally unsustainable." He gives Newchurch five years before the current death spiral leads to a worldwide "fire sale." Meanwhile, Bergoglio "blows the wad" with big synods, incessant international junkets, and "holy year" extravaganzas as if he had all the money in the world. But financial reality comes for Newpopes as it does for every other organization.

Newchurch Initiates a New Scam: Replacing the Half New Order New Latin Mess of 1962
With the Invalid Fully-New-Order (Novus Ordo) Mess of 1969, Concealed in Latin

From: Petrus Romanus, The TRADITIO Network's Roman Correspondent
1970 Mess

A "Woke" Bearded Newchurch Presbyter
Reads the New Mess of 1970 in Latin
"From the Chair" instead of the Altar
Newchurch Is Now Phasing In
The Invalid Full-blown New Mess of 1970
To Replace the New Latin Mess of 1962
Formerly Called "Indult, Motu, Extraordinary"
This Has All along Been the Goal of Newchurch
To Fool the Clueless Neocon/Newchurchers:
Into Accepting the Invalid Vatican II Mess
Leading Them on a Wild Goose Chase
For the Last Sixty Years

Now it is clear what Benedict-Ratzinger was up to when he temporarily permitted, under stringent restrictions, the use of the Half New Order New Latin Mess of 1962, which is most certainly NOT the Traditional Latin Mass, to be used in Newchurches under the flawed terms of his 2007 document "Summorum pontificum." Ratzinger made it clear in the fine print that his permission was to be for a short time only. In 2021 Francis-Bergoglio pulled the trigger on that temporary permission with his decree "Traditionis custodes," which essentially killed 1962 Mess.

The so-called "1962 Mess" was also contrived by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, the Chief Architect of the post-Vatican II Anti-council Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New Mess." The "1962 Mess" isn't just a gravely-corrupt form of the Mess, but was specifically fabricated to lead almost immediately to the invalid "New Mess."

Now Newchurch has implemented the next phase of its destruction of traditional Catholic services, invalid as they are in Newchurch because there are no ordained priests left to offer them (Newchurch stopped ordaining valid priests in 1968 when it adopted the invalid Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968, which merely "installs presbyters to preside over the assembly," not, as the traditional Sacrament of Holy Orders provides, "to offer the sacrifice of the Mass for the living and the dead.")

And that next phase is a ruse to fool the clueless Neocon/Pseudo-traditionalists in the Newchurch of the New Order. The "Latin Mass" has now been transmogrified into the invalid 1969 New Order (Novus Ordo) Mess, concealed in Latin. That version came out of the Vatican II Anti-council's aftermath, but was rarely used.

At the direction of Newcardinal Arthur Roche, Prefect of the Dicastery for [New Order] Worship, the first transmogrification occurred first in the Newdiocese of Austin, Texas, where two 1962 Messes were shut down and replaced with the invalid New Mess of 1969, concealed in Latin. The truth that the 1969 New Latin Mess is just another Newchurch fake will be concealed, as do the Anglican/Episcopalians and their fake service, with "smells and bells." The New Latin Mess of 1970 will be simulated, at least for the present, with the invalid, unordained presbyter facing East singing Gregorian chant. In other words, it will be the full-blown Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Mess dressed up to look like a 1962 New Latin Mess.

Will this latest Newchurch scam fool the Neocon/Pseudo-traditionalist Newchurchers? Of course it will. After all, the clueless Newchurchers bought hook line and sinker the lie that the "1962 Mess" is the Traditional Latin Mass, by whatever concocted term was called: "Indult," "Motu," or "Extraordinary." The next step in this Newchurch's ploy is obvious: strip off the Latin and leave only the invalid New Mess behind. So the Newchurch Neocons will be back to where they started in 1969, having been led on a 60-year wild-goose chance, to which they willingly succumbed, along with the apostate Newchurch of the New Order and its Newpopes.

Francis-Bergoglio Does an Apparent About-face on Deaconesses
He Invites Three Women to Argue before His Executive Committee for the Installation of Deaconess

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Deaconesses Are Soon to Be Coming

If Francis-Bergoglio Has His Way
He Invited Three Women to Address
His Executive Committee of Nine Newcardinals
One of Whom Was an Anglican Heretic
It Is Clear that He Is Laying the Footwork

To Replace the Traditional Latin Mass

On February 12, 2024, Francis-Bergoglio has indicated that he will soon be aping Leftist Protestant churches and installing deaconesses in Newchurch parishes. Bergoglio "is very much in favor of the female diaconate," said one Newchurch "nun." He is now strategizing with his Executive Committee of Nine Newcardinals how to implement this anti-Catholic policy in view of the tremendous blowback from his December 19, 2024 decree "Fiducia supplicans" allowing the blessing of sodomite couples.

Bergoglio invited three women were invited to address the Committee, one an Anglican heretic, to hawk the anti-Catholic practice. In 2016 and 2022, Newvatican declared that the "deaconesses" mentioned in Sacred Scripture were not clergy, but more like what Catholics would call "sisters" or "nuns." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]

Traditional Catholics, one Newchurcher responded: "If this were to happen in my Newparish, I will stop attending. It is bad enough now, with piano and Protestant hymns." It's far worse than that. The Newchurch of the New Order is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church. Its service is not a Mass. It's "sacraments" are invalid. It's doctrine and morals are corrupt. Anyone who patronizes an apostate, immoral, and graceless Newchurch is committing an objective sin against the First Commandment of God.

His favorite target is Neocon/Pseudo-traditionalist Newchurchers, who still bend the knee to him. At his February 7, 2024, screed from the balcony of St. Peter's (where he refuses to live), he called these Newchurchers "hypocrites" for resisting his call to bless sodomite couples, according to his decree "Ecclesia supplicans" of December 18, 2023.

Traditional Catholics, Bergoglio's opponents in Newchurch called the decree "an invitation to schism." Already, Newchurch bishops in Germany are in virtual schism. Belgium, Ireland, and Poland may not be far behind. Finally, the realization is hitting Newchurchers that this man is not a pope, nor is Newchurch the Catholic Church.

A Presbyter of the "Charitable" Newchurch Convicted of Million-dollar Thefts
From Fellow Presbyters in a Newdiocesan Rest Home -- and He's Not the Only One Convicted

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
David Rosenberg

Presbyter David Rosenberg
Caught Red-handed in Million-dollar Theft
He Preyed upon His Fellow Presbyters
In a Newdiocesan Rest Home for Stroke
Rosenberg Was Convicted in Court
On Eight Felonies
But His Newbishop Refused to Expel
Rosenberg as a Presbyter

Newchurch's vaunted "charity" (it prefers the ambiguous term "love") is merely a publicity ruse. After Newvatican was caught stealing from its own Children's Hospital. After the Three Paedophile Newpopes (JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio) did essentially nothing to stop Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. Now it turns out that Newchurch presbyter's are stealing from each other, especially the most vulnerable of them.

Presbyter David Rosenberg was convicted on February 9, 2024, in Lansing, Michigan, of stealing almost one million USD from elderly presbyters under the guise of "care." His victims were primarily suffering from incompetence due to stroke. He was convicted of eight felonies of embezzlement from a vulnerable adult, larceny, taking money under false pretenses, and perjury. He ran his scam in a Newdiocese-run home for retired presbyters. The Newbishop of Lansing, Earl Boyea Jr., shed a few crocodile tears, but refused to expel Rosenberg as a presbyter from the Newdiocese.

Other recent examples of multi-million-dollar thieving Newchurch presbyters include an Indiana presbyter convicted of taking kickbacks from his Newparish bingo operators (often the Mafia). A New Jersey presbyter pled guilty to theft connected with the currently-indicted U.S. Senator Robert Menendez, who was caught with Mid-East gold bars in his clothing. Another Michigan presbyter was convicted of stealing 5,000,000 USD from his own Newparish. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic news sources.]

Traditional Catholics, the state court is expected to overrule the do-nothing Newchurch bishop in March 2024 and throw the presbyter in prison for at least a decade and throttle him for repayment. Rosenberg is only one of many Newchurch presbyters who have been convicted in such theft schemes in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust.

Francis-Bergoglio Won't Expel His Paedophile Newbishop of Belgium
So Now the Belgian Parliament Is Holding Hearings to Block Bergoglio from Ever Visiting Belgium

Belgian Newarchbishop Luc Terlinden
Angrily Testifies before a Parliamentary Committee
That Francis-Bergoglio Is a Paedophile Supporter

The Belgian Newbishops' Conference Has Had It
With Bergoglio's Continuing Complicity in Paedophilia
And the Conference Is Suggesting that Belgium
Once a Noted Catholic Country
Block Bergoglio's Planned Visit in 2024

The Third Paedophile Newpope Francis-Bergoglio's refusal to throw out his paedophile Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters is coming back to bite him in the derriere. The Germans wanted four paedophile Newcardinals and Newbishops removed, but Bergoglio won't do it. Now the Belgians want one of their Newbishops, Roger Vangheluwe expelled, but Bergoglio won't do that either. So, the Belgium parliament is debating fighting fire with fire. If Bergoglio won't expel his paedophile Newbishop, the Belgians may just expel Bergoglio, who has announced plans to visit the once-Catholic country in September 2024!

Now the Belgian (New)bishops' Conference has thrown Bergoglio under the bus because he won't expel Newbishop Roger Vangheluwe, of Bruges, for sodomizing two of his own nephews. The Conference has testified to the Belgian Parliament on January 31, 2024, that it is Bergoglio's decision alone; the Conference has no authority. It has already demanded in 2017, 2019, and 2023 that Bergoglio to dump the paedophile Newbishop, and Bergoglio, as is his habit, denied the just demands. Even Vangheluwe has written to Bergoglio to abdicate, but Bergoglio insists on keeping his paedophile Newbishop.

The Conference also demanded that Bergoglio hear the victims of the clergy's paedophile crimes. An independent report exposed 475 paedophile crimes by Newchurch clergy and officials. As a result, Belgian police launched surprise raids on Newhurch properties to gather evidence of the crimes. Newcardinal Godfried Danneels was discovered in an audio recording attempting to strong-arm one of the nephews not to accuse his uncle publicly. Subsequently, Bergoglio spit in the face of authorities by appointing Danneels to a prestigious position in the 2015 Family Synod. No wonder Newchurch has destroyed Catholic families!

When rampant paedophile crimes in the Belgian Newchurch were exposed in a four-part Belgian television series, many Belgian walked out of Newchurch, taking their participation and money with them. Bergoglio panicked and later announced his intended visit to Belgium in September 2024. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]

Traditional Catholics, Bergoglio's own Commission for Protecting Children is mere public-relations window dressing. Several Commission members had had it, and in October 2023 resigned in protest because Bergoglio refuses to do anything about the paedophile crimes that continue to rage in his Newchurch. Now the Newroman sewer is clearly backing up, and Bergoglio is publicly drenched with its stench.

Francis-Bergoglio's Blessing of "Gay Couples" Was of No Use to a Perverted Presbyter
Strangled in a Sex-trafficking Scheme with the Knowledge of His Newarchbishop

All about the Presbyter's Activities

Every day oblivious Newchurchers bending the knee to the apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio have been forced to face the fact that the Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church, is completely out of control, run by a brood of perverts, as Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust continues unabated.

Yet another proof -- not extreme any longer, but just another in a long line of crimes that would have been unheard of sixty years ago -- was reported from once-Catholic Spain on January 26, 2024. The no-longer-uncommon incident is disgusting to read, but, as Scripture teaches us: Magna est veritas, et praevalet [Great is the truth, and it prevails]. Our Lord Jesus Christ Himself did not hesitate to call out in public the worst sins.

Alfonso Lopez Benito, a 80-year-old presbyter canon of Valencia Cathedral, now taken over by Newchurch,, was, according to police, strangled to death naked in a "lover's dispute." The accomplice in the lurid event was a man of 40, an illegal alien, who was a participant in the presbyter's racket of paying young homosexual illegals for sodomy. Police indicated that the murder was the result of a violent argument between the two.

What is even more shocking is the fact that the Newarchbishop of Valencia, Enrique Benavent Vidal, knew all about the presbyter's perverted activities and essentially did nothing about them. The house where the murder took place was owned by the Newarchdiocese. The presbyter's neighbors certainly knew what was going on and filed complaints about "noise" going on in the house. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Daily Mail.]

Newchurch, founded in 1964 by the Vatican II Anti-council to replace the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church and run by Anti-popes Paul VI-Montini, JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and now Francis-Bergoglio, is a truly disgusting operation. Newchurchers entering a vile Newchurch should harken to the Catholic poet Dante's chilling warning (Inferno, III.9): "Lasciate ogni speranza, voi ch' entrate [Abandon all hope, ye who enter].


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

Newchurch's Seattle Archdiocese Shuts down Two-third of Its Newparishes
Only 60 Newparishes Will Remain of 170 because of Lack of Funds and Presbyters

Church for Sale

Seattle Is Selling of 110 of Its Newparishes
Two-thirds of the Total Number

Because of the Lack of Presbyters
And the Downturn in Collections
The Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust
And the New Order Mess that Is Not a Mass
Is Catching up with the Fake Newchurch
Which Is Dying a Quicker Death
Than Was Expected

The Newarchdiocese of Seattle, Washington, announced on February 5, 2024, that it will shutter two-thirds of its Newparishes, chopping the current number of 170, which had already been reduced in a previous downsizing, to a mere 60 within a period of just three years. There just aren't enough presbyters to service the Newarchdiocese, as the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) cut to a handful the number of young men who wanted to become presbyters (Newchurch hasn't ordained priests since adopting the Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968.)

Nor has it helped that Newcardinals and Newbishops are continuing to sodomize young seminarians and that Francis-Bergoglio hasn't lifted a finger to stop it. Newchurch's continuing Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust and growing disgust with the New Order Mess that isn't a Catholic Mass have led to a substantial decrease in collections.

Meanwhile, Seattle Newarchbishop Paul Etienne will be moving from a Newparish rectory into a newly-purchased 2,400,000 USD home in an upscale waterfront neighborhood. Newarchdiocesan officials say that the relocation is necessary the better to accommodate guests. As he plans to shut down two-thirds of his Newparishes over the next three years, he himself is moving in to a luxury accommodation. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, the substantial loss of the Seattle Newarchdiocese, which is just one of many that are going through a shutdown process, is further proof that the 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, is dying even faster than expected.

Newchurch Is Slammed with the Biggest Judgment Levied to Date for Paedophile Crimes
"Monster" Presbyter Ramos Victimized 25 Children for More than Ten Years with Newchurch's Complicity

A "Monster" Paedophile

Began to Sodomize Children
As Young as Five Years of Age
While Newchurch in Los Angeles
Transferred Him for over TenYears
From Newparish to Newparish
Until Finally Assigning Him
To Run a Children's Ministry
In Tijuana, Mexico!

The Newarchdiocese of Los Angeles and the Newdiocese of Orange in California have been hit with the biggest judgment levied to date against an individual Newchurch presbyter for complicity in paedophile crimes. The Newdioceses were were slammed with a 10,000,000 USD judgment for their complicity in the crimes perpetrated by their presbyter, Eleuterio Ramos against at least 25 children.

As soon Ramos was "installed" as a presbyter (since 1968 Newchurch has not ordained priests in the Sacrament of Holy Orders, but merely "installed" them like Protestant ministers), he went on a rampage sodomizing children. Presbyter Ramos liked them young. One of the victims was only five years of age. Ramos's police report documents the decades-long history of the "horrific" sex crimes inflicted by Ramos on more than 25 children. Then the Newdiocese of Orange connived to cover up the vile paedophile crimes, quietly transferring Ramos to another Newparish, unbeknownst to parents there. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Service.]

Traditional Catholics, this was not the end of presbyter Ramos's rampages. At the next Newparish Ramos continued to ravage boys, so Newchurch transferred him from Newparish to Newparish for ten years. Eventually, he was sent off to Mexico, where the Newbishop in Tijuana assigned the paeodphile to run a children's ministry! It is hard to imagine anything more vile than these crimes against children. According to the principle of St. Paul (Romans 1:32), the Newpopes and the Newbishops are complicit in the crimes and, as the Apostle says, these Newchurch officials are "worthy of death." No wonder Francis-Bergoglio rejects Biblical and Catholic teaching and wants to do away with the death penalty!

To Pander to a Self-centered, Silly Newcardinal
He Should Be Incarcerated until He Pays All Expenses

Just when you think Newchurch can't get any lower, something worse occurs. Newcardinal Jose Luis Lacunza, of Panama, decided that he would play a trick on Francis-Bergoglio and "disappear." The Newcardinal was declared a missing person for two days while Newvatican and police around the world conducted a furious search, thinking that Lacunza had been abducted, like several other clergymen in recent days.

Lacunza revealed himself again on February 1, 2024, and said that his feigned disappearance was a "stupid prank." He had commandeered a pickup truck and disappeared. And who appointed this stupid man as a Newcardinal in 2015? Bergoglio, of course. So far has that once distinguished office of Cardinal fallen, along with everything else in the fake Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church, as even the stupid now surely have to admit. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, Newcardinal Lacunza, almost 80 years of age, excused himself by saying: "The older you are, the more stupid.” If Bergoglio were a true pope, he would demote this Newcardinal and turn him over to the Panama police for prosecution. How many police resources in Panama, Newvatican, and around the world were diverted from their important work to pander to a silly Newcardinal. He should be incarcerated until he pays up -- from his own pocket -- all the expenses incurred by the police in investigating his "prank." Instead, Lacunza brushed off his crime -- and so did the equally stupid Bergoglio.

Germany's largest and the world's richest Newchurch diocese announced on February 1, 2024, that it is under water. Because in 2023 alone, 50,000 Newchurchers left, sick of the infiltration of "wokism" and sex crimes, the Newarchdiocese is now carrying a deficit of over 20,000,000 USD. Even Germany's mandatory kirkensteuer (church tax), which brings in over 700,000 USD to Cologne, can save it, as in 2023, 500,000 German Newchurchers struck their names from the rolls. Other Newdioceses, like Freiburg, Munich, and Regensburg, Benedict-Ratzinger's beloved home Newdiocese, are also going down the tubes.

Twenty years ago Cologne boasted 2,220,000 Newchurchers. Now that number has sunk by 22 per cent to 1,730,000. More than one in five Newchurchers have walked out. Cologne's Newcardinal Rainer Moelki stands accused of complicity in sex crimes, and, although he has done the right thing by tendering his abdication, Francis-Bergoglio won't let his accomplice go. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]

Traditional Catholics, Newchurch, now in a panic, has decreed that if German Newchurchers don't pay their church tax, they can't marry or die in Newchurch. But Newchurchers don't care. 77 per cent of them cremate their bodies and thus are barred from church burial anyway. Newchurchers are so serious about getting out that they make the trek to city hall and voluntarily sign away their rights.

Newchurch Itself Admits in New Document that Its "Sacraments" Are Fake
"Gestis Verbisque" Puts the Lie to the Protestantized Non-sacraments in Newchurch

Fake Presbyter with Fake Cookie

A Fake Newchurch Presbyter-minister
Looks at a Fake Communion Cookie
Adulterated with Foreign Contaminants
Therefore Not a Sacred Host
Over a Table that Is Not an Altar
Newchurch Has Not Ordained Priests
Since Adopting the Protestantized
New Ordinal of 1968
The Whole Newchurch of the New Order
Is Complete Fakery
Having No True Mass or Sacraments
And Not Having the Power to Give Grace

As if Traditional Catholics didn't know it already, now the Newchurch of the New Order itself has admitted in a new document of February 3, 2024, entitled "Gestis verbisque" that its so-called "sacraments" are fake. Newchurch has admitted that to be valid, true Sacraments must have valid form (the words, verba) and matter (the material, gestum), traditionally in Latin for certainty. This teaching is, of course, Catholic dogma, but Newchurch has been loath to admit that dogma and to own up to the fact that its "sacraments" are not sacraments at all, but frauds, no more really than those of the Protestants.

In Newchurch, anything goes. What was once a Communion Host has now become a cookie, its matter adulterated with baking soda, salt, sugar, cinnamon, margarine, and other "contaminants," according to "recipes" published by various Newdioceses. By Scripture and Tradition, valid Communion Hosts must be made of wheaten flower and water ONLY. Newchurch's "wine" may be Kool-Aid or invalid alcoholic beverages, like sherry and port, or perhaps in Ireland, whiskey. By Scripture and Tradition, valid Communion wine must be made only of the fermented juice of grapes and is consumed only by the celebrant of the Mass.

Newchurch has corrupted to invalidity those who used to be priests, as the true Sacrament of Holy Orders was changed in Newchurch since 1968 to accord with a Protestantized Ordinal that does not "ordain priests to offer the Sacrifice of the Mass for the living and the dead," but merely "installs resbyters (ministers) to preside over the assembly of the people." Thus, Newchurch presbyters are no more priests than a Lutheran or Anglican/Episcopalian ministers.

The rest of the Sacraments no longer exist in Newchurch. They too were invalidated in the early 1970s by defect of form or matter, or both. The true Sacrament of Penance (Confession) has been modified to a psychobabble session called "Reconciliation." Confirmation has been completely gutted. Extreme Unction has been done away with and replaced by a mere Blessing of the Sick, not too far different from Francis-Bergoglio's new Blessing of Sodomites. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, even valid Baptism no longer exists in most places in Newchurch, which now calls it by a different name, Initiation, as if to a Masonic lodge or college fraternity, and often uses ad-libbed words, not the ones required by Christ in Sacred Scripture (Matthew 28:19). Only Newchurch Matrimony may be valid, as it is conferred not by a clergyman, but by the parties to each other, with the form being their expression of mutual consent.

There Is a Lot of Controversy over This Question"

Of Pius XII, a Transitional Pope
To The New Order of 1964-1968
John XXIII Was Suspect of Its Legitimacy
But Promulgated It Anyway
Only because, as He Himself Said
Of His Personal Regard for Pius XII

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

When I attended the Neo-SSPX seminary in the 1990s under the rule of Bernie Fellay and raised the question why he required the New Latin Mess, Divine Office, and Sacraments of 1962 rather than the Traditional Latin Mass, Divine Office, and Sacraments before the corruptions of the 1950s, I was denounced. It seemed to me that those corruptions were fake, phony, and illegitimate, and that Fellay was deliberately playing into the hands of the Newchurch of the New Order and its apostate Newpopes.

Yet I understand that Archbishop Lefebvre, the founder of the original SSPX, of which Fellay's reorganized Neo-SSPX after the Archbishop's death is merely a corruption, did accept at least parts of the Half New Order New Latin Mess of 1962. Could you explain what actually happened?


Archbishop Lefebvre addressed this question when asked at the time. He did not accept the New Latin Mess of 1962 without reservations. In fact. he changed the version used by his original SSPX to an earlier form in some significant places. He explained that he couldn't fight all the heresies of the Vatican II Anti-council at once, but thought that the Anti-council's teaching on "religious liberty," what we now call "oecumenism" ("we all worship the same god"; "all religions are true"), on which the whole Conciliar Church (what we now call "Newchurch") was based, had to be the primary focus of his attack.

The Archbishop promised that later he would review the ad-interim use of his modified version of the New Latin Mess. His biographer wrote that he was in fact doing just that, preparing a reversion to the fully traditional form (1950) of the Mass, when death overtook him.

We cannot be too critical of the Archbishop for this practical decision. He did the best he could with the information and resources that were available to him at the time. Now we know much more from the researches of traditional Catholic researchers and theologians. We now know that Pius XII, far from being as "traditional" as the Neocon/Pseudo-traditionalists try to make him out to be, had already in the 1950s taken a more "Conciliar" (Novus Ordo) approach in his acts and documents. Pius XII now appears to be, in fact, not really a traditional pope, but what may be called a "transitional" pope to the New Order, being in many ways far worse that John XXIII, who overtly stated that he was simply implementing Pius XII's work.

The degree of corruptions in the Mass and Divine Office that were introduced by Pius XII and his own "liturgy czar," whom he appointed in 1948, the Freemason presbyter, Hannibal Bugnini, stuns us now to a degree that was largely overlooked in the turmoil of the 1950s. For further information, click on the TRADITIO Network's Traditional Latin Mass, Divine Office & Sacraments department in the section "The Descent into the Black Hole of the Liturgical 'New Order,'" which details the year-by-year corruptions that Bugnini-Pius XII engineered.

Lacroix Serves on Bergoglio's Select
Executive Committee to Run Newchurch

On January 29, 2024, Francis-Bergoglio's intimate advisor, a member of his select Executive Committee (Council) of nine Newcardinals that run Newchurch, has withdrawn as Newarchbishop of Quebec, Canada, in view of a sexual assault charge against him. Gerald Lacroix took himself out after he was fingered for sex crimes against a 17-year-old girl.

It was just in 2022 that another of Canada's Newcardinals, Marc Ouellet, who served on three of Bergoglio's major dicasteries, was accused of sexually assaulting a woman, who denounced Ouellet in writing directly to Bergoglio. In what could be yet another cover-up characteristic of Bergoglio's regime, the Newpope personally determined that Ouellet would not be investigated.

The serious accusations against Lacroix will become part of a pending class-action suit against the Newarchdiocese of Quebec in 2022, involving 147 plaintiffs who are charging sexual assaults by presbyters and other Newchurch officials. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, In the apostate Francis-Bergoglio's pretender regime, criminal Newcardinals, Newarchbishops, and Newbishops get a pass. And Bergoglio, in his rush to control Newchurch long after his death, has raised the number of Newbishops in Newchurch to over 5,000. Just sixty years ago the number was less than half that. These Newbishops in name only were never consecrated in the Sacrament of Holy Orders, but only "installed" in the invalid (fake) Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968. Bergoglio is seeing to it that these Newbishops, many of who have been charged with sex crimes, are multiplying like maggots.

Francis-Bergoglio's Newpapal Altar Boys School Features Paedophilia
Newvatican's Court of Appeals Finds His Presbyter-Teacher Guilty of Corrupting Youth

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Newvatican Court

Francis-Bergoglio's Kangaroo Court
Originally Let Off the Newpope's Presbyter
Who Taught at His Altar Boys' School
But the Court of Appeals after Pushback
Reversed the Decision
And Sentenced the Paedophile Presbyter
To Two Years in Jail
The School Has Been the Subject of Scandal
So Bergoglio Tried to Conceal the Crimes
By Moving the School outside Newvatican's Walls

In ancient Greece the philosopher Socrates was charged on the crime of corrupting youth. Athens put the noted philosopher to death in 399 B.C. by hemlock for the crime. Francis-Bergoglio's presbyter-teacher at his Newvatican Altar Boys' School was found guilty of the same crime on January 30, 2024, by Newvatican's Court of Appeals, but the presbyter will get off with a mere two years for destroying boys' lives. The primary victim was a boy who was sodomized over a period of five years. The rector of the school got away scot free on a technicality, as Newvatican was too incompetent to prosecute him soon enough to avoid the statute of limitations.

The original Newvatican court let Gabriele Martinelli off, but the pushback was so great that the Court of Appeals reversed the ruling and sentenced the presbyter for sex crimes against children on Newvatican property. The primary victim "served" the fake Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Order Mess personally for Bergoglio. The obvious question is: what did Bergoglio know about the crimes and when did he know them? The court didn't even dare to ask the question. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]

Traditional Catholics, under the apostate Francis-Bergoglio's failed watch, the school had already been the subject of paedophile crimes in 2021. In order to take the heat off of himself, Bergoglio relocated the school outside the walls of the Newvatican. It didn't do any good, though, as the current cases prove. Bergoglio is so besotted in paedophile crimes on the part of his appointees that he cannot stop the crimes -- nor does he seem to want to.

Religious Orders in Newchurch Are Now Officially Dead
The 2023 Survey Finds that 87 per cent Didn't Have a Single Member Take Final Vows

Abandoned Monastery

The 2023 Survey of Religious Orders
In the Newchurch of the New Order
Is Devastating
Almost No Order Had a Single Member
Take Final Vows
The U.S. (New)bishops' Conference
Predicts that Half of the 13 per Cent Remainder
Will Fall Away as Well
With the Loss of True Catholic Religious Orders
Newchurch Is Doomed to a Quick Demise

Remember the Dominicans, Franciscans. Benedictines, Carmelites, and the rest of the religious orders that once graced the Catholic Church? The Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) and the Newchurch of the New Order, founded at that Anti-council in 1964, admitted that in the results of a survey, released January 26, 2024, 87 per cent of the Newchurch religious orders had not one single member take final vows in 2023. The U.S. (New)bishops' Conference has projected that within ten years, half of the small remainder will fall away.

55 per cent of women religious in Newchurch and 25 per cent of male religious are over 80 years old. Of those who were considering becoming a Newchurch religious, 55 per cent had been dissuaded by more than one person, who undoubtedly called such a choice in the fake Newchurch sheer madness. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Crux News Service .]

Traditional Catholics, Newchurch, which is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church, has no "vocations" because one cannot be said to have a "vocation" to error and evil, any more than one can have a "vocation" to become a Lutheran or a Buddhist. With the loss of true Catholic religious orders, Newchurch is doomed to a quick demise.

Apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio Officially Turns over St. Bartholomew's Basilica
And St. Peter's Archbasilica to the Arch-heretic "Archbishop" of the Anglicans

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Francis-Bergoglio * Justin Welby

Francis-Bergoglio Leans In
To Kiss the Arch-heretic
Of the Anglican Protestants
Justin Welby, "Archbishop" of Canterbury
The Two Have Become Bosom Buddies
Since They Have Agreed to Approve
Sodomite Unions and Blessings
But Cries and Schisms Are Rising
Against both Bergoglio and Welby
As Apostates and "False Teachers"

For the second time in just nine months, Francis-Bergoglio approved Anglican use of one of Rome's archbasilicas, St. John Lateran. The first time Bergoglio claimed not to have been informed. This time he was definitely informed and gave the arch-heretic Anglican "Archbishop" of Canterbury his full-throated approval to use one of Rome's great Catholic basilicas, that of St. Bartholomew, the apostle who was literally flayed for standing firm in the faith against the pagans.

On January 25, 2024, Justin Welby celebrated an "Anglican eucharist" on the High Altar of the basilica, no less. There were fake cookies and Kool-Aid all around! Heretic Newchurchers and Anglicans, and probably not a few pagans, munched and swilled. "Archbishop" Welby pontificated that the Newchurch heretics and the Anglican heretics "must find ways of being joyful in disagreement."

This isn't really so surprising. Every day Newchurch presbyters and Newbishops, who were never ordained or consecrated under the Catholic Sacrament of Holy Orders, but, since 1968, were "installed" like heretic Protestant ministers merely "to preside over the assembly of the people," when Newchurch adopted the invalid (fake) Protestantized New Ordinal. Whether Newchurch or Anglican Protestant, it's all fakery, all invalid, all null and void

Although Bergoglio didn't dare show up for the "liturgy," probably out of fear of being riotously heckled, as he has been in other locales, he and Welby later that day "did" an "oecumenical Vespers" at one of the four archbasilicas of Rome: St. Paul's Extra Muros (Outside the Aurelian Walls). Bergoglio had already "loaned out" to "Archbishop" Welby the use of St. Peter's Archbasilica to celebrate Anglican Vespers. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]

Traditional Catholics, Bergoglio and Welby are now said to be bosom buddies, even going on trips together. There is a problem, though. Not only is Bergoglio being called in public a fake pope by several of his own Newcardinals and Newbishops, particularly after his public approval of sodomite unions and blessings, but many Anglicans are deserting Welby too, as he is likewise promoting the blessing of sodomite unions. Traditional Anglicans have denounced Welby as having " taken the path of false teaching" and have separated from him as no longer being "leader of the global communion" of the Anglican church, just as Traditional Catholics have rejected and separated from Bergoglio and Newchurch as apostate from the Catholic Faith.

A Reader Asks: "What Can Be Done about Two Women in a Rosary Group
Who Say the Rosary Incorrectly and Won't Listen to Polite Correction?"

From: Lisa
Ave Maria in Latin

Praying the Rosary in Latin
In Addition to Being Close to the Mind of the Church
Forces People to Think What They Are Saying
And Avoid Becoming Guilty of What Our Lord
Condemned as Praying "as the Heathens"
Prattling Words and Not Thinking
About What They Are Saying

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

A traditional lady from our church, when praying the Ave Maria, instead of saying, "Pray for us sinners," she says "Pray for our sinners." I corrected her once but she continued in her error. Another lady said it's the same thing. We pray the Rosary together in the car, and this has now become an issue and distraction. How do we resolve this problem?


The two ladies are dead wrong. It is not the same thing at all. The Latin is clear: "Ora pro nobis peccatoribus." The "pro nobis" phrase indicates something, in English, like "on behalf of us (who are) sinners." "Pray for our sinners" would be rendered differently, "Ora pro nostris peccatoribus." As the meaning is different, and the ladies are not praying for themselves and others (who are "our sinners" anyway?), one could even argue that these ladies' Rosary is void insofar as the indulgences pertaining to the Rosary are concerned, particularly as the ladies in question have been (politely) corrected and remain obstinate in their error.

The form of the Sancta Maria ("Holy Mary") ending was established in its present form circa 1570, at the time of the dogmatic Council of Trent, by Pope St. Pius V himself, the same sainted pope to canonize for all time the form of the Roman Mass that had been used from apostolic/patristic times, what we now call the Traditional Latin Mass (this is not the "New Latin Mess of 1962").

Sometimes people get funny notions in their heads and think that their erroneous idiosyncrasies outweigh what is correct. One way to solve this problem for your group is to pray your Rosary in Latin, which any traditional Catholic should be doing anyway, as was strongly recommended by several popes and Saints. For example, the great St. Francis of Assisi encouraged Catholics, including laypeople, to pray in Latin, particularly the Rosary.

People tend to prattle along when saying the Rosary, not thinking much about what they are saying. They become guilty of what Our Lord condemned as praying "as the heathens" (Matthew 6:7/DRV). Praying the Rosary in Latin, in addition to being closer to the mind of the Church, forces people really to think about what they are saying. This is just another one of the many benefits of using the Church's Sacred Language instead of the vulgar tongues.

Et venit in spiritu in templum. Et cum inducerent puerum Iesum parentes ejus, ut facerent secundum consuetudinem legis pro eo,
et ipse [Simeon] accepit eum in ulnas suas : et benedixit Deum, et dixit:
Nunc dimittis servum tuum Domine, secundum verbum tuum in pace:
quia viderunt oculi mei salutare tuum,
quod parasti ante faciem omnium populorum:
lumen ad revelationem gentium, et gloriam plebis tuae Israel.
(Luke 2:27-32/V)
[And he came by the Spirit into the temple. And when his parents brought in the child Jesus, to do for him according to the custom of the law,
He also took him into his arms, and blessed God, and said:
Now thou dost dismiss thy servant, O Lord, according to thy word in peace;
Because my eyes have seen thy salvation,
Which thou hast prepared before the face of all peoples:
A light to the revelation of the Gentiles, and the glory of thy people Israel.]

A Reader Asks: "Are there Any Traditional Canons or Customs for the Roman Catholic Clergy
As to the Wearing of Beards and Long Hair?"

From: Flavio
Bearded Orthodox Rabbi

A Bearded Jewish Rabbi
The Jews Who Did Not Convert to Christianity
Retained Their Beards
As the Orthodox Jews Do to This Day
The Islamists Have a Similar Practice
The Catholic Tradition Holds that St. Peter
Shaved His Beard when He Became a Christian
Roman Catholic Priests
Have Traditionally Been Forbidden
To Wear Long Hair or Beards

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

Are there are any canons or customs for the Roman Catholic clergy as to whether they are supposed to be clean shaven or may wear beards? Is there is any particular way their hair is supposed to be cut? It seems that a considerable number of Newchurch "clergy" after the Vatican II Anti-council seem now to be taking pride in aping the extremes of dress in the secular society around them.


Here are some traditional resources on this issue:

  1. The Third Council of Carthage (397) forbade clerics to wear long hair or beards. The reason for the law,"nec comam nutriat, nec barbam," must be sought in the distinction between cleric and layman. A shaven face is one of the accepted external signs of the clerical state and is part of the habitus ecclesiasticus of clerics in the Roman Church. It has also been the Roman custom from ancient times into Christian times: "non nutriendi capillos nec in genis nec in mento."
  2. In Luther's time Catholic priests and monks did not wear beards. Many Protestants rebelled and wore beards to distinguish themselves from Catholics.
  3. Roman priests are traditionally prohibited from wearing beards, because they thereby draw attention to themselves, particularly at the Holy Altar, whereas the attention should be paid to Our Lord. The Romans were meticulously clean shaven until the time of the homosexual emperor Hadrian (r. 117-138), who adopted unRoman practices. The Romans considered facial hair effeminate and a trait of the effete East.
  4. The Jews who did not convert to Christianity retained their beards, as the Orthodox Jews do to this day. The Council of Limoge (1031) held that St. Peter shaved his beard when he became Christian, so his successor priests were expected to follow suit.
  5. Beards in Roman practice are considered prideful; the humble man shaves. The principle is the similar for women: woman's uncovered hair in Church is considered prideful and exhibitionistic. That is why St. Paul enunciates the Christian principle: "But every woman praying or prophesying with her head not covered disgraceth her head" (1 Corinthians 11:5/DRV). In Islam, beards are viewed as an "adornment," and Mohammedan men are encouraged to wear them to honor the Prophet Mohammed.
  6. For priests in particular, beards constitute practical problems of sacrilege. When Particles of the Most Blessed Sacrament or of the Most Precious Blood fall into a beard or moustache, how does one practically clean out the Particles or Droplets? If one has ever seen the Sacred Host fall onto the floor by accident and remembers how vigorously the priest attempted to clean out the Most Blessed Sacrament, sometimes cutting out parts of the carpet to burn, one understands why the Roman Catholic Church does not permit beards on its priests.
Only limited exceptions were ever permitted to this traditional Roman practice, but the basic principle remains the rule. "Exceptio probat regulam." One sees many violations of Roman Catholic tradition and practice in the Newchurch of the New Order, a fact that is not surprising, as Newchurch is most certainly NOT the Roman Catholic Church. The same traditional Roman practice should be followed, as far as possible, by laymen who serve at the altar.
