Italian-Americans are denouncing Nicholas DeMarzio, Newchurch bishop of Brooklyn, New York, himself an Italian-American, for working to destroy one of the most beautiful historical churches in country, Our Lady of Loreto Church. Italian-Americans have been fighting DeMarzio for a year to save the traditional church-building.
The architectural treasure, with its frescoed ceilings and fine Italian statuary, was built by Italian immigrants with their own hands in the early 1900s, on land farmed by the first Italian settler in America. "This is not just about a church," said Charles Piazza, the leader of the effort to thwart DiMarzio. "It’s about a piece of the Italian-American heritage -— a symbol of how we made a place of our own in this country." DeMarzio, like all Novus Ordo bishops, gives lip-service to politically-correct "diversity" and "ethnicity," but, when push comes to shove, acts worse than Attila the Hun, who at least heeded Pope Leo the Great and agreed not to destroy Rome if he was paid off!
Even though the Newchurch bishop wants to destroy the traditional church building, the New York Landmarks Conservancy is against it. Our Lady of Loreto has been heralded as one of the finest examples of the Roman Renaissance style, embraced by Italian-American artists at the turn of the 20th century in an effort to introduce neoclassical architecture to American cities. Not only in raping and assaulting children and in suborning Newchurch clergy who do so, Novus Ordo bishops are barbarians in matters of art and culture as well as in morals.
This is a sad come-down from a time when the Catholic Church was the patron of the best art and artists that the world has produced. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the New York Times.]
Because of my once subscribing to a single "conservative" Novus Ordo publication, my name has been placed, without my permission, on numerous Novus Ordo mailing lists. As a result, at this time of year I receive a reprehensible number of unsolicited mailings hawking the phony "Divine Mercy Sunday" and degrading the most important period of Easter and the Octave Day of Easter (Low Sunday, or Dominica in Albis) to an afterthought. Could you talk again about the Novus Ordo hoax of "Divine Mercy Sunday"?
The Fathers Reply.
Divine Mercy Sunday, which is entirely a fabrication of the New Order, is even hawked by some pseudo-traditionalists. For information about this Novus Ordo hoax, which promotes the heretical notion of Universal Salvation ("Pro Multis"), click on FAQ11: "How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Practices?" in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics) department, in the section "Divine Mercy."
Just as the TRADITIO Network predicted four years ago, when the lid of the pressure-cooker of filth that already characterized the Benedict-Ratzinger papacy would burst, the splatter could take down a pope. Accordingly, the TRADITIO Network first issued the call then for the Modernist Newpope to abdicate. Four years ago the TRADITIO Network was a lone voice calling for his abdication, but the wisdom of TRADITIO's position has now been joined by more and more voices demanding the end for this corrupt pope. As we said then, he should be subjected to the ancient Roman penalty for corrupt office-holders: to be "thrown into the Tiber"!
As we will hear in the Passions that will be read out this week in the traditional Holy Week rites (which are prohibited in the Newchurch of the New Order), Our Lord called the corrupt King Herod "that fox" (Luke 13:32/DRV). Well, Benedict-Ratzinger has turned out to be foxier than that fox. Since 1981 he has presided over Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal, and in 2001 he became Newchurch's official Sex-crimes Czar. Benedict-Ratzinger has, in his almost five years as Newpope, perpetrated hoax after hoax, not just the Great Sex & Embezzlement Hoax, but also the Great "Motu" Mess Hoax, which attempts to draw people way from the Catholic Faith and Traditional Latin Mass to the Conciliar-Bugnini Mess of 1962+. So foxy has Benedict-Ratzinger been in deceiving the pseudo-traditionalists that many of them go around advocating the "Motu" Mess, which was designed by the Chief Architect of the Novus Ordo, the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini!
As some Newchurch leaders desperately try to defend the indefensible Newpope, the world's population has now seen this Benedict-Ratzinger for the white-clothed corrupt pope that he is. The documentary evidence is clear: the man knowingly participated in setting up sex crimes against children. His own former archdiocese in Munich admits it. Yet a few Newchurch bishops, themselves already mired in the corruption, try to create a Fictional Ratzinger for public consumption. But it isn't working any more. Now the nightly news around the world reveals daily details of Benedict-Ratzinger's filthy behavior.
We cannot help but be reminded of the case of U.S. President Richard Nixon, who was forced to resign in 1974 when his corruption was exposed. How Nixon handled the original charges exactly matches Benedict-Ratzinger's. At first Nixon denied the charges completely and had his henchmen join him in the denial. "I am not a crook," he told the American people. But he was a crook, and was forced to resign when his lies became so public that they could no longer be denied. Watergate tore the United States apart before Nixon resigned. The same will likely be true of Newchurch and its Newpope.
Moreover, it is becoming clear that lying may be a Ratzingerian family trait. Benedict-Ratzinger's elder brother, Georg, when accused of assaults against children when headmaster of a boys' choir school for thirty years, at first denied everything. Then in a few days he was admitting that he routinely slapped children across the face until it became illegal in 1980, and then his child-victims revealed that he threw chairs them and injured them -- so vehemently that his false teeth once fell out!
Likewise, Georg's younger brother Josef, now Benedict, denied that he knew anything about sheltering paedophiles who were later convicted of sex crimes against children. But his own archdiocese of Munich has already admitted that he sheltered a paedophile, Peter Hullerman, in one of his rectories, and now it has come out that he personally agreed to that paedophile's reassignment to another parish, where the presbyter raped more children and was eventually convicted in the German courts. When this case came recently to light, Benedict-Ratzinger had his mouthpiece pass the buck to his archidiocesan deputy at the time. But now a memorandum has been revealed that shows that Benedict-Ratzinger himself presided at a meeting to transfer the presbyter to another parish "with full duties" and was routinely kept informed of the presbyter's activities.
Benedict-Ratzinger has become more and more desperate in his attempts to deny the obvious. His mouthpiece, presbyter Federico Lombardi, keeps trying to vilify those who simply want an full investigation and even the reputation of the child-victims, who picketed outside the Vatican and demanded that Benedict-Ratzinger open files on paedopohile presbyters worldwide and immediately defrock all "predator presbyters." Public calls for abdication, and even arrest, are now breathing down on Benedict-Ratzinger, as more and more revelations about his corruption come out. It is possible that he will join the ranks of abdicating popes:
If he refuses to abdicate, his papacy will have lost all moral authority and will, for all practical purposes, be dead anyway.
After decades of covering up for presbyter Marcial Maciel, founder of the Legionaries of Christ, the organization on March 26, 2010, publicly admitted that Maciel was a "reprehensible" sex criminal. The Legion issued a public apology to "all those who have been affected, wounded, or scandalized by the reprehensible actions of our founder."
For years the Legionaries deceitfully held up Maciel as an exemplar of virtue and encouraged members to emulate him. Now the Legion conceded: "We accept that, given the gravity of his faults, we cannot take his person as a model of Christian or priestly life." The Legionaries stated: "If it turns out that anyone culpably cooperated in his misdeeds, we will act according to the principles of Christian justice and charity, holding these people responsible for their actions." That will be awkward, since one of the cooperators was Newpope JPII himself, who treated the criminal Maciel as a beloved favorite. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
In a scandal rivaling its publication of the Pentagon Papers, The New York Times on March 24, 2010, published Newchurch documents revealing that Cardinal Ratzinger, who headed Newchurch's Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith from 1981 to 2005, personally quashed a case against a presbyter, who he was personally warned by three Wisconsin bishops would bring "true scandal in the future" to Newchurch. Benedict-Ratzinger fought tooth and nail to keep the new documents out of public view, but the lawyers for five of the child-victims made the documents public.
The presbyter, Lawrence Murphy, Ratzinger was personally told, had sexually assaulted over 200 deaf children at a well-known school for deaf children. Murphy became the director of the school during Vatican II, in 1963. It is only one of thousands of cases that Ratzinger and his congregation refused to act upon from 1981 to 2005, when he headed the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, which decides whether presbyters should be given full trials and defrocked.
The internal correspondence that came to light from Newchurch bishops in Wisconsin personally Cardinal Josef Ratzinger, Prefect of the Congregation, refused to defrock the paedophile. It also shows that while Newchurch officials tussled over whether the presbyter should be dismissed, their highest priority was conceal the scandal. Well, now Ratzinger has personal scandal aplenty!
In 1996, Rembert Weakland, Newarchbishop of Milwaukee, wrote to Ratzinger personally and received no response. In March 1997 Weakland then went over Ratzinger's head to the Supreme Tribunal of the Apostolic Signatura. The Apostolic Signature kicked the matter back down to Ratzinger, saying that it was "not competent" to grant the request. On April 6, 1998, Ratzinger's Chief Deputy, now his Secretary of State, instructed the Wisconsin bishops not to subject the criminal presbyter to an ecclesiastical trial. Again on May 30, 1998, Bertone told the Wisconsin bishops, who had come to Newrome over the matter, discouraged the bishop from pursing official dismissal of the criminal presbyter. On August 21, 1998, presbyter Murphy died and was given a full-blown Novus Ordo funeral, with the criminal dressed in full vestments in an open casket and an auxiliary bishop pontificating.
Instead of being disciplined, presbyter Murphy was quietly moved by Newchurch authorities from Milwaukee to the Newdiocese of Superior in northern Wisconsin in 1974, where he spent his last 24 years working freely with children in Newchurch parishes, schools and a juvenile detention center. He died in 1998, still a presbyter "in good standing" and "in communion" with Newchurch.
The new documents have emerged as Benedict-Ratzinger is facing fallout from the fact that he admittedly sheltered a presbyter-paedophile in one of his rectories as Newchurch archbishop of Munich, Germany. He is facing other accusations that he and his direct subordinates often did not alert civilian authorities or discipline presbyters involved in sexual crimes.
The new documents have also exposed the fact that under Cardinal Ratzinger's regime from 2001 as Sex Czar to the present day as Newpope, the Newvatican "justice system" is a joke. Only 20 percent of the 3,000 accused presbyters whose cases went to Ratzinger's doctrinal office were given full ecclesiastical trials, and only some of those involved were defrocked.
Just how closely Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust is associated with the post-Conciliar popes was revealed on March 24, 2010, when the most vilified Newbishop in the Irish branch of that holocaust finally resigned on March 9, 2010. In the highly-publicized case, it took Benedict-Ratzinger over a fortnight to accept and announce the resignation. What is noteworthy is that Newbishop John Magee was the personal secretary of not one, but three Conciliar popes before he was Novus-Ordo installed (not consecrated) as the Newchurch bishop of Cloyne, Ireland, in 1987. He was the personal right-hand man of Paul VI, John Paul I, and John Paul II.
Late in 2008, a report by the independent National Safeguarding Board for Children in Ireland found that Magee had let his presbyters range free, unpunished, to rape children, many of them handicapped. Under intense pressure from Irish government and Newchurch leaders demanding Magee's ouster, Benedict-Ratzinger was forced in March 2009 to remove Magee from active administration of the Newdiocese, but refused to take any disciplinary action against Magee personally for his criminality.
Meanwhile, the German magazine Stern reported that its poll on March 24, 2010, of German Newchurchers showed that only a little more than one-third (39 per cent) trusted Benedict-Ratzinger. That number dropped from almost two-thirds (62 per cent) in just six weeks.
Good Catholics, Newvatican is currently conducting a despicable propaganda campaign to picture Benedict-Ratzinger as some kind of crime-fighter against child rape. In fact, the case of his bishop Magee and thousands of other Newchurch bishops who actively suborned the sex-crimes holocaust against children, shows that, to this very day, Benedict-Ratzinger refuses, except under the most severe pressure, to do anything to his criminal bishops. Lately the world has found out why. Ratzinger, as Newarchbishop of Munich, has himself been implicated in the sheltering of a paedophile, convicted of numerous sexual assaults against children and of personally quashing disciplinary action against a presbyter who sexually assaulted 200 deaf children.
The Novus Ordo Sisters of the Immaculate Heart here in Monroe, Michigan, are offering on the Fridays of Lent pagan drumming in their "barn chapel." Such profane instruments are generally prohibited from the true Mass and absolutely prohibited during Lent. According to the sisters, drumming is supposed to be a "spiritual enhancer," used by many pagan cultures. One and all are invited to "come for a two-hour session that may awaken your playful spirit, reduce tension and stress, and enhance your awareness of how sound can create peace and harmony." Pagan practices such as the Confucian I Ching and pagan Indian ritual are introduced.
These Novus Ordo nuns have become Druids, earth-worshipping pagans, and yet Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch continues to support them. After all, it is the Lenten season. What else could be on anyone's mind but "drumming" for a suggested donation of $10-$20 U.S. dollars or a walk around a labyrinth. I bet you didn't know that walking a crooked path could be "oh, so refreshing"! No doubt these Novus Ordo sisters are "in good standing" and "in full communion" with Newchurch.
According to a local report here, the cat is out of the bag as to the real purpose of Benedict-Ratzinger's "Motu" Mess:
"News of the "Motu" service has attracted congregants from the SSPX chapel."
"Fr. X is respectful of the Novus Ordo service, as it is also offered at St. Y's."
From these reports, we can see exactly what the goals of the Half Novus Ordo "Motu" Mess are:
Traditional Catholics should resist the "Motu" Mess and its deceptions!
The Fathers Reply.
We agree. The "Motu" Mess is a great hoax. Furthermore, most Motarians will not have access to the traditional rites of this most sacred week. Almost all of them will have only an invalid Novus Ordo service. A few will have Bugnini's Modernistic rites of 1962+. Only fully traditional sites will have the real rites intact before the Freemason presbyter Bugnini "modernized" them.
Ottawa's Newchurch archbishop Terrence Prendergast has ordered all Newchurchers to kneel at the Novus Ordo "eucharistic player," and the Newchurchers have responded, "I don't like that. We are the people set free; we no longer have to kneel to God." Novus Ordinarians are accustomed to standing during the invalid "eucharistic prayers," introduced by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini in 1967 and incorporated into the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Novus Ordo service of 1969. It was Bugnini's fabrication of 1967 that led P.H. Omlor to publish his devastating monograph proving the invalidity of the post-Vatican II "liturgy," entitled Questioning the Validity of the New, All-English Canon.
One irate Novus Ordo woman told Prendergast that her husband might not come to church because of this. She said, "We don't like people telling us what to do." The Newchurchers have constructed an entirely false religion in their sect, which is certainly not Catholic. One Newparishioner proclaimed: "I don't see the Catholic Church [sic] as doing loving things. I don't see them as the caring community they should be." This Newchurcher is obviously ignorant that the One Whom she claims to be her God said: "If you love me, keep my Commandments" (John 14:15/DRV). To her, and to Benedict-Ratzinger's Novus Ordinarians, their sect is merely a political game, attached to the Moderistic/Liberalistic theology of the post-Conciliar popes, including the current one.
Prendergast had to admit that Vatican II (1962-1965) had introduced a irreverence into the Novus Ordo worship service: "After 40 years since the Vatican Council, we have gotten away from certain aspects of reverence." As a result, Novus Ordinarians have gone bonkers. Prendergast had to admit that at one Novus Ordo service his Newchurchers got so out of control at the kiss of the peace that it took 45 minutes to get them back into the pews and resume the service.
Prendergast went on to say: "At one time nobody ever applauded. Now, they applaud for everything. It becomes more like a concert." Applauding in a Catholic Church is traditionally condemned. Pope St. Pius X banned applause from church, reacting against those who clapped as he was carried into St. Peter Basilica on the sedia gestatoria, by remarking: "The servant does not deserve to be applauded in the house of his Master." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Montreal Gazette.]
Curiously, the Society of St. Pius X is going through a similar controversy. It is trying to introduce Half Novus Ordo 1962 postures dictatorially at all its sites. And the SSPXers are reacting like the Novus Ordinarians, telling Bernie Fellay, their Superior General, Nuts to you!
Phrases like "in good standing" and "in full communion" with the Newchurch of the New Order have no meaning. These are now just meaningless political phrases. The worst heretics are considered to be "in good standing" and "in full communion" with Newchurch, while faithful traditional Catholics continue to be persecuted. Here is a recent example.
Presbyter Louis Trivison, who founded the international group FutureChurch, which advocates the violation of celibacy by presbyters and the ordination of priestesses. Trivison was ordained in 1948, so he knew what was truly Catholic. Yet he broke with true Catholicism in the 1960s, advocating the invalid Novus Ordo service in vulgar tongues. Trivision pandered his condemned Modernism on his Newdiocese's liturgical and parish council commissions. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Cleveland Plain Dealer.]
Apparently there is no honor among thieves. Hans Kung, who was a co-conspirator in pushing the Modernist agenda with the besuited "Fr." Ratzinger at Vatican II, has come out against Newpope's complicity in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. Even though Kung had his license to teach theology revoked by Paul VI, became a Freemason after Vatican II and excommunicated himself, Benedict-Ratzinger continued to show him friendship and favor, even inviting him to vacation with him at his summer castle. Kung has now stated publicly:
Honesty demands that Joseph Ratzinger himself, the man who for decades has been principally responsible for the worldwide cover-up, at last pronounce his own mea culpa. Is it not time for Pope Benedict XVI himself to acknowledge his share of responsibility?
Ratzinger, who served as Newchurch archbishop of Munich from 1977 to 1982, has yet to speak about the hundreds of clergy sex crimes there coming to light since January 2010 in Germany. These include the paedophile Peter Hullermann, who sexually-assaulted children in Essen, after which Ratzinger personally sheltered him in a rectory in Munich. There, Hullermann was allowed contact with children almost immediately. In 1986 Hullerman was convicted of sex crimes against children, yet continued to work with children until Ratzinger's complicity was exposed in March 2009. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Washington Post.]
Benedict-Ratzinger had hoped that his P.R. junket to the United States in April 2008 would put an end to criticism of his papacy for letting his bishops and presbyters go on a sex-crime holocaust against children. He was mistaken. His attempt to foist off responsibility to the victims themselves and to proclaim himself personally innocent have triggered a firestorm of new sex-crime reports.
In addition to the United States, the countries of Ireland, England, Australia, Austria, and Switzerland have reported many new crimes. The worst cases seem to be coming from Germany, where Benedict-Ratzinger's own brother, headmaster of a church school for thirty years, has been implicated in assaults upon children, and the Newchurch archdiocese of Munich has admitted that Josef Ratzinger, when archbishop there, personally sheltered a paedophile presbyter in one of his rectories.
Meanwhile, the Institut Francais d'opinion Publique has reported the results of its survey that France, once called the Daughter of the Church, is "in freefall," indicating that the Newchurch of the New Order may be essentially dead there within a generation. The bright side is that statistics compiled by Paix Liturgique show that the growth of the Traditional Catholic Movement in France is continuing.
Since Vatican II, the number of French identifying themselves as "Catholics" fell from 81 per cent to 64 per cent. The number attending the Novus Ordo service once a week or more fell from 27 per cent to 4.5 per cent in the same period. Think of it. Not even one in twenty self-identified Newchurchers in France attend the Novus Ordo service weekly. For comparison, in the United States, that number is a better, but still paltry, one in seven.
63 per cent of those who still consider themselves "Catholic" believe the heresy that all religions are the same. 68 per cent want abortion declared moral. According to official Newchurch Church statistics, the total number of Catholic marriages (-28.4%), baptisms (-19.1%), confirmations (-35.3%), as well as presbyters (-26.1%) and religious sisters (-23.4%), has continued to fall between 1996 and 2006.
In 1990, the total number of ordinations to the Novus Ordo presbyterate in France was only 90. Paris had 10; 7 are predicted for 2010, and 4 for 2011. There are fewer than 750 seminarians currently studying for the Novus Ordo presbyterate, with about a hundred of these being for religious orders, not Newchurch dioceses. Four dioceses have no seminarians at all. It is estimated that up to a third of the dioceses of Newchurch in France, some dating to the second century, will be forced to close or amalgamate by 2025. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by La Croix.]
U.S. House of Representatives Speaker Nancy Pelosi, a Newchurcher, demonstrated just what an ignoramus she (as well as so many other Newchurchers) is about her Novus Ordo sect and what a hypocrite she is about that sect. Desperate to pass Barack Obama's multi-trillion-dollar healthcare scam into law in spite of the fact that a majority of the American people are opposed to it, Pelosi announced on March 19, 2010, that she had prayed to St. Joseph the Worker. To the contrary, in both the traditional calendar and in the Novus Ordo calendar, March 19 is the feast of St. Joseph, Spouse of the Blessed Virgin Mary -- in other words, a feast recognizing the sanctity of the family. The Feast of St. Joseph the Workman (changed by the Novus Ordo into Worker in a capitulation to feminists who speak English), a new feast that appeared in the ramp-up to the Novus Ordo, falls on May 1, Socialist Workers' Day.
Pelosi said: "It's a day where we remember and pray to St. Joseph to benefit the workers of America, and that's exactly what our healthcare bill will do. Every [Newchurch religious] order that you can think of was there, saying they wanted us to pass this life-affirming legislation." This is, of course, an outright lie. One group of Modernist/Liberalist Newchurch nuns broke even from their own U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops to endorse the pro-abortion provision in the Obama-Pelosi bill.
Pelosi is not new to her pro-abortion position. It was only a year or two ago that this ignorant laywomen presumed to teach that the Doctors of the Church supported abortion. This woman and her ilk are reprehensible heretics, liars, and ignoramuses. Yet they constantly pretend to be "Catholics" to get Catholic votes. The stake is too good for Pelosi's heresy and hypocrisy!
How long should a homily be during Mass? Our priest preaches well over an hour each Sunday. That seems excessive.
The Fathers Reply.
Indeed it is excessive. According to common guidelines, a Sunday sermon (the term "homily" is a Novus Ordo concept) should be 10-15 minutes. Expatiating for an hour while Our Lord's Sacrifice waits at the altar, can even be viewed as sacrilegious. The sermon is not even part of the Mass; it is defined liturgically as an interruption in the Mass. That is why, before the priest ascends the pulpit, he removes at least his maniple, if not his chasuble, which are Mass vestments.
A priest should not prattle on, holding his congregation captive and thinking that he is more important than the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. If he wants to provide catechetical instruction or chat about current events, ecclesiastical or otherwise, he should do so before or after Mass.
An eighth-century manuscript described as "more important than the Dead Sea Scrolls" has been put on display at the National Museum of Ireland. The Latin manuscript was found in 2006 in a North Tipperary bog by a workman operating a mechanical digger. It had lain undisturbed for 1200 years. The National Museum rated the work as of "staggering importance" and says that the Psalter is among the top ten most valuable manuscripts ever found.
Dr. Patrick Wallace stated that the book was "more important for Ireland than the finding of the Dead Sea Scrolls" had been for Biblical scholars and "has changed our views about how ancient Irish manuscripts were produced." He added: "We never thought anything like this would ever be found." Senior conservator John Gillis stated that he was "transfixed with fear" when he had to restore the delicate document. He said that it was "the first early medieval manuscript to come to light in 200 years anywhere in Europe."
The book, written on vellum [animal skin], contains the complete text in Latin of all 150 of the Bible's Book of Psalms. About 15 per cent has survived. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Irish Times.]
Are Fr. Malachi Martin's books good to read? I am currently reading his 1983 book, Decline and Fall of the Roman Church, and now realize why the Protestants despise the Catholic Church because of so much papal corruption.
The Fathers Reply.
Malachi Martin's works are certainly instructive. He was personally acquainted with the popes and leaders of the Church in Newvatican. He writes his works as fiction because, as he himself said, if he wrote them as non-fiction, he would be killed. When you believe every word or not, they stimulate thought about what is really going on in Newchurch behind all the propaganda cloaked in white. Bad as Newchurch was in 1983 when Fr. Martin wrote the book, it is far worse now, under the papacies of the JPII "The Ungreat" and the present "Unholy Father."
Benedict-Ratzinger's promised March 19, 2010, Pastoral Letter to the Catholics [sic] of Ireland demonstrates yet another example of what this "Unholy Father" has become notorious for: all words and no action. His letter, issued in English, expresses "concern" and "dismay," but takes no action whatsoever against the Newchurch bishops who were implicated in suborning numerous rapes and assaults upon "defenseless" (his word) children, including many handicapped children. Benedict-Ratzinger is no better than the CEO of a for-profit corporation, whose spin-meisters craft beautiful language to excuse the most foul of corporate deeds.
Benedict-Ratzinger's hypocrisy is particularly redolent as he implicitly tries to place the blame on the Irish Catholics themselves: "Fast-paced social change has occurred, often adversely affecting people's traditional adherence to Catholic teaching and values. All too often, the sacramental and devotional practices that sustain faith and enable it to grow ... were neglected." What Benedict-Ratzinger fails to mention is that he himself, as Fr. Ratzinger dressed is a business suit at Vatican II, was one of the Modernist leaders who destroyed those very "Catholic teaching and values." To this day, he is not "traditionalist," but a Modernist committed to Vatican II.
What is Benedict-Ratzinger's solution for some of the grossest crimes of immorality committed by his clergy and religious? "I urge you to examine your conscience, take responsibility for the sins you have committed, and humbly express your sorrow." He does not say: "Vacate your offices, you 'filthy' bishops" (Romans 1:27/DRV). "Thou canst be steward[s] no longer (Luke 16:2/DRV). As to the Newchurch bishops who have headed up Newchurch continuing Great Sex Crimes & Embezzlement Holocaust, he offers not censure, but pussyfooting excuses for their "filthy" behavior: "I recognize how difficult it was to grasp the extent and complexity of the problem, to obtain reliable information and to make the right decisions in the light of conflicting expert advice." For shame, Josef. You don't need a psychiatrist to recognize a child rapist. His own crime reveals him.
When perverted priests were denounced to Pope St. Pius V, that Saint used few words: to say that they were priests no longer: turn them over to the civil authorities to pay the just penalties for their crimes. That Saint-pope was following Our Lord's prescription: "Bind his hands and feet, and cast him into the exterior darkness; there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth" (Matthew 22:13/DRV).
Maybe that is why Pius V is in glory in heaven, and, in the words of St. John Chrysostom, Benedict-Ratzinger's skull will likely pave the floor of Hell together with those of the other "rotten bishops." Especially now that it has come out that Ratzinger, with knowledge aforethought, personally sheltered a paedophile presbyter in a rectory of his archdiocese of Munich, whence the pervert went to rape children with Ratzinger's archepiscopal imprimatur, as it were. Finally, the police got him -- not Ratzinger. In his pastoral letter, Benedict-Ratzinger calls upon the Irish Newchurchers to do penance, but not the bishops and presbyters who have been steeped in the crimes! He is Newchurcher's greatest Modernist spin-meister, a master at "passing the buck," rather than, as even his own chief investigator said, "the buck stops here" with him.
Good Catholics, Benedict-Ratzinger can't have it both ways. He can't dress in white and proclaim himself the "Holy Father" while he and his henchmen carry on a sex holocaust against children that make him the most "Unholy Father" in centuries. He can't pass the buck to innocent children for the immoral crimes of his adult clergy. That, to use the word of St. Paul, is downright "filthy." What an opportunity Benedict-Ratzinger missed! If he had acted like a true pope instead of a pusillanimous letter-writer, would have immediately traveled to Ireland in person and, like St. Patrick, driven out the snakes in ecclesiastical office there. But the evidence now indicates that he is one of the snakes himself.
When did the Church start having the Holy Week Passions read by several clerics like a drama?
The Fathers Reply.
The chanting of the Gospel Passions in three parts during Holy Week is ancient and wonderful Divine drama. The chant is some of the most beautiful in the Gregorian repertoire. Of course, the text is the best: that of Scripture itself. The dramatic chanting of the Passions in Holy Week became, in mediaeval times, the source of the Passion Plays.
The Passions -- St. Matthew's on Palm Sunday, St. Mark's on Tuesday of Holy Week, St. Luke's on Wednesday of Holy Week, and St. John's on Good Friday -- are chanted in three parts: Christus (Christ), Chronista (the narrator), and Synagoga (Caiphas, Pilate, the Jews, etc.). The Gospel text is allocated between the three parts as appropriate. The parts are sung by the celebrant, the deacon, and the subdeacon, so it is an elaborate form that most Catholics, unfortunately, have never heard. Few modern clergy have the skill to celebrate it well. Few modern clergy even use the traditional Catholic rites of Holy Week. They use instead the "modernized" and "simplified" Bugnini rites in the "1962 Missal."
One thing good to remember for Holy Week, which has such dramatic passages in the traditional Roman rites for those sacred days, is that the source is not some dry tome with dead characters. The people in the Passions -- Christ, Caiphas, Pilate, Peter, John, the Jews -- were flesh-and-blood people with real emotions and purposes, and exist today in their successors. It would behoove every traditional Catholic to meditate upon the four Passions, because they provide an unparalleled insight into human nature and the basis of our traditional Faith for all time. For example, one might see the modern Caiphas sitting in Newrome, the modern Pilate sitting in Washington, D.C., and other government seats.
Msgr. Charles Scicluna, Newvatican's chief prosecutor in the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, revealed to the world just how little Benedict-Ratzinger is troubled by Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust: he has appointed only ten -- ten! -- investigators for thousand of cases, the number of which the official says is rising, not slackening. With hundreds of cases of sex crimes by Newchurch bishops and presbyters coming into Newrome each week, a Newvatican official told the Italian daily L'Avvenire on March 16, 2010, that his investigative staff is "overloaded."
In just the last week, hundreds of new cases have come from Benedict-Ratzinger's native Germany -- and even from his former archdiocese of Munich. Scicluna admitted that out of tens of thousands of reported cases, his office had managed to handle only 3,000 cases in ten years. He expressed doubts that the number of cases would "settle," as the number is still rising. Scicluna admitted that his office's handling of cases was far from complete. "It's not that these people are doing every case from A to Z; otherwise, we'd really be bonkers."
The Newchurch monsignor criticized Benedict-Ratzinger's record in dealing with the issue as secretive and inadequate. "We have to get our act together and start working for more transparency in investigations and more adequate responses for the problem." Scicluna even admitted that, one way or another, Benedict-Ratzinger was responsible for aiding and abetting a known paedophile presybter when Ratzinger was archbishop of Munich: "If he was involved in the decision, he would be [responsible]. If he was not involved, it's a responsibility that comes from his office, a 'the buck stops here' sort of thing." Scicluna did not indicate whether his office was investigating Benedict-Ratzinger for sex crimes.
The National Director of the Survivors Network of Those Abused by Presbyters [sic] criticized Benedict-Ratzinger's assignment of only ten investigators for tens of thousands of cases. "It seems like an extraordinarily paltry effort, given the scope of the crisis." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the New York Times.]
How do I know that I am attending the traditional Holy Week rites? I understand that there are substantially different versions out there.
The Fathers Reply.
There are three substantially different versions that have to be differentiated:
The Half Novus Ordo rites of Holy Week, depending upon the organization that uses it, e.g., the Society of St. Pius X, may import even additional aspects of the Novus Ordo (such as laypeople reading the gutted Prophecies in a vulgar tongue.) Other aberrations are the use of the Novus Ordo "anticipated" Saturday Mass, as for Palm Sunday. The traditional Holy Saturday rites are conducted in the morning, and the Lenten fast and abstinence ends at noon on Holy Saturday.
The Society of St. Pius X's highest cleric in Germany, District Director Franz Schmidberger, has broken the SSPX's silence on the holocaust of sex crimes against children by Newchurch bishops and priests. But -- to the horror of many -- the German came down on the side of the paedophiles and whitewashed Benedict-Ratzinger. In an interview for Leibziger Volkszeitung, Schmidberger spat out: "The pope was in no way guilty; therefore, he cannot also apologize."
The head of the holocaust not guilty?! Schmidberger is either an ignoramus or an outright liar. Even the Newchurch archdiocese of Munich, where Josef Ratzinger was archbishop from 1977 to 1982, has publicly admitted that Ratzinger personally sheltered a known paedophile presbyter in one of his rectories. That presbyter was later transferred to another parish, where he raped several children, for which he was convicted and imprisoned by civil authorities, not the Church. For shame, Franz!
This is the pope that Schmidberger wants to whitewash? The same Newcardinal who, as JPII's plenipotentary Sex-crimes Czar, sent a letter to all bishops around the world, threatening that if they reported to the police presbyters who had committed sex crimes, the reporting bishops would themselves be excommunicated from the New Order! For shame, Franz!
Schmidberger is playing the oldest game in the book: deny the clear reality and trump up a phony conspiracy to cover it up. It's the homosexuals who are trying to discredit the German pope and the papacy. No, it is the homosexual bishops and presbyters of Newchurch, over which Benedict-Ratzinger possesses "full, immediate, and universal ordinary power," who are discrediting the Newchurch of the New Order and its head. For shame, Franz!
It is not the homosexuals, but the Newchurch child-victims who are now turning state's evidence against the German pope and his subordinates. It is Newchurch and Newchurch members of the German government who have initiated no less than three investigations into corruption in Newchurch. For shame, Franz!
Good Catholics, many inside and outside of the SSPX have been wondering why the SSPX under the Fellay administration has been selling out more and more of Archbishop Lefebvre's founding principles of rejecting the New Order and specifically Josef Ratzinger, whom he knew personally. Fellay's Neo-SSPX has accepted the Half Novus Ordo "Mess of 1962." It has accepted "unexcommunication" from the Newchurch of the New Order. It has issued not one word of condemnation against Benedict-Ratzinger, Georg Ratzinger, any Newchurch bishop, or any Newchurch presbyter for a now well-documented holocaust of sex crimes against children. Unquestionably, the SSPX's founder, Archbishop Lefebvre, would have unleashed a scathing condemnation against the Newchurch clergy and their leaders, who rape and suborn the rape of children under their charge.
The answer is obvious. The current Fellay administration of the SSPX, including his sycophantic lieutenant Franz, has already sold out to the New Order. It just can't quite figure out how to handle the paperwork yet. How can Fellay and Schmidberger, therefore, speak out against the most "Unholy Father" since the Bad Pope, Alexander VI, whose grossly-immoral papacy trigged the Protestant Reformation? No, if they do speak out, their membership with Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch will be rebuffed. So, they publicly support this Unholy Father and thus, under traditional Catholic theology, implicate themselves in the horrors of his immoral regime.
If you didn't already think that Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch of the New Order and all in it are crazy, this might convince you. The Newcardinal-primate of Austria, Christoph Schoenborn, has a solution for the Newchurch clergy's sex crimes against children: condoms! He also recommends that presbyters marry. Perhaps then they can rape their own children. After all, most rapes of children are still committed by male members of the children's own family.
Schoenborn made his statements in a March 11, 2010 interview, in which he essentially denied that Newchurch clergy were doing anything wrong: "How is it that members of the [New]church are constantly made responsible for crimes we didn't commit?" This was a particularly crazy statement for Schoenborn to make, since he got his post after his predecessor, Newcardinal Hans Groer, was forced to resign after it was revealed that he had raped children.
Schoenborn's Austria has recently become implicated in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, as several clergy at Mehrerau Abbey, including the archabbot himself, have been implicated in numerous rapes of the children in the school there.
Supposedly, the "Third Secret of Fatima" contained the following prediction: "In Portugal, the dogma of the Faith will always be preserved." If that is true, Portugal has apparently made Our Lady of Fatima out to be a liar, when, on March 5, 2010, the Portuguese parliament approved 125-99 the immoral horror of "gay marriage." The parliament wouldn't even let the people vote on the matter in a referendum.
Portugal becomes the sixth country in once-Catholic Europe to recognize this perversion in a country where sodomy was a crime there until 1982. Abortion was rescinded as a crime in 2008. The first "gay marriage" ceremonies will take place in April 2010, a month before Benedict-Ratzinger is supposed to visit to give the once-Catholic country to give it his Novus Ordo blessing. So, although Portugal is sinking fast into unCatholic immorality, the Newpope of Newchurch singles out a sodomy- and abortion-happy country for a blessing instead of an interdict!

Like the Black Death of the fourteenth century, Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust is putrifying more and more countries in its rapid spread. Now the scandal has spread to another continent, South America, as Brazil has been rocked with the scandal, which now includes Benedict-Ratzinger and his brother personally. Newchurch presbyters have gone on criminal rampages against children most prominently in the United States, Ireland, England, The Netherlands, Austria, Australia -- and Germany, where Josef (Benedict) Ratzinger had served as a Newchurch archbishop in Munich, where he sheltered a known paedophile presbyter, who was later convicted of sex crimes against children.
On March 16, 2010, Newvatican was forced to reveal that three Brazilian presbyters had already been denounced as sex criminals against children. Brazil has the largest Newchurch population in world, where reportedly 74 per cent of Brazil's 140 million people identify themselves as Newchurchers. Brazilians were shocked as SBT television during the week of March 7, 2010, aired video from a hidden camera showing presbyer Marques Barbosa sexually raping a boy named Fabiano. SBT also reported that three altar boys had charged that they had been raped by local Newchurch presbyters.
Like Pinocchio, Benedict-Ratzinger's brother, Msgr. Georg Ratzinger, is growing a longer and longer nose from lies. At first, he denied that he had personally committed any assaults against the students of the Regensburger Domspatzen choir school, where he was headmaster from 1964 to 1994. That statement was a lie.
Then he did a public mea culpa in a German television interview, admitting that, yes, he did slap around the students, but he didn't want to. He intimated that he had no control over himself and was happy when the German government in 1980 made it a crime to slap students around. He told the German television audience that he "strictly obeyed" the new law. But even that statement was a lie.
More choirboys have now come forth to call Georg Ratzinger a liar. They describe him as having a flashpoint temper both before and after 1980, a temper that he frequently expressed in violence toward the students. "Ratzinger was extremely choleric and quick-tempered during choir practice," said one of these students toward the end of Ratzinger's tenure, 1988-1992. "On a number of occasions, I saw him get so angry that he threw a chair into our group of singers." Once Ratzinger flew into such a rage during choir practice "that even his false teeth fell out."
Benedict-Ratzinger, who is very close to his brother and is his superior as pope, has made no statement and has taken no action whatsoever. Der Spiegel, a German language weekly magazine with one of the largest circulations in Europe, has raised questions about what Benedict-Ratzinger himself knew about specific incidents of assaults against children, including those of his brother, Georg. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Der Spiegel.]
Dear Fathers:I have recently listened to some of the late Fr. Malachi Martin's talks. I was shocked to learn that Satanism has reached the level of the Vatican. Is this really true?
The Fathers Reply.
Fr. Malachi Martin was not the only one to report these Satanic covens within Newvatican, involving even Newchurch cardinals. As a matter of fact, in February 2010 a renowned Newchurch exorcist in Rome, presbyter Gabriele Amorth, released a book of memoirs in which he declares that he knows of the existence of Satanic sects in Newvatican, where participation reaches all the way up to the College of Cardinals. In Memoirs of an Exorcist: My Life Fighting against Satan, Fr. Amorth affirms: "Yes, also in the Vatican there are members of Satanic sects." When asked whether members of the clergy are involved or whether participation is within the lay community only, he responded, "There are priests [sic], monsignors and also cardinals!" Actually, Satanism would explain a lot about the horrible crimes that are going on in Newvatican -- right up to the top!
Likely headed for warmer climes on February 22, 2010, is Robert Carter, founder of the "gay Catholic" organization, Dignity, who died at 82. Carter helped found the National Gay and Lesbian Task Force in 1973. Nevertheless, Paul VI did nothing against him, although there were calls for his expulsion from the Novus Ordo presbyterate. In the Newchurch of the New Order, presbyters who advocate perversion have been protected by the Newchurch popes, Paul VI, JPII, and Benedict-Ratzinger, while truly traditional Catholic priests continue to be persecuted.
Presbyter Carter simulated the invalid Novus Ordo service for homosexuals in apartments all around Manhattan. He led blessing ceremonies for "gay couples." He lead Dignity "gays" in his clerical collar in marching for "gay pride." He was called a "Catholic Harvey Milk," referring to the notoriously homosexual San Francisco city councilman, who was assassinated in 1978.
Benedict-Ratzinger and his administration are sick to death, and throwing a little "Motu" Latin on the dung-heap doesn't make it smell any better. In a front page editorial, Benedict-Ratzinger's official papal newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano claimed on March 14, 2010, that the rape of tens of thousands of Newchurch children is "very small." It blamed the press for reporting the crimes. Benedict-Ratzinger is either a liar or he is so out of tune with reality that he should be forced out of office as mentally incompetent. In the United States alone, his Newchurch of the New Order has been adjudged guilty enough to pay close to 2,000,000,000 dollars, with more damage payments on the way.
This "defense" from a Newchurch pope who himself sheltered a known paedophile priest and then transferred him to another parish, where he was to be convicted of more sex crimes against children. The hand of God is breathing down on Benedict-Ratzinger as more members of his administration are biting the dust. Irish Newcardinal-Primate Sean Brady has been charged with obstruction of justice in failing to report to the police the serial rape of a 14-year-old girl by one of his presbyters. Brady cannot plead ignorance. He was at several meetings at which the girl detailed her repeated rape by presbyter Brendan Smythe, who was convicted of sex crimes and was suspected of raping a hundred other children over a forty-year period.
Benedict-Ratzinger's Newcardinal Primate has now admitted that he was at the meetings, but says that he was not the "designated person" to report the crimes to the police. Since Brady is the highest-ranking Newchurch official in Ireland, this excuse has further enraged an already irate Irish public, which is in the process of relieving Newchurch of control of its schools for incompetence.
Benedict-Ratzinger's propaganda machine has gone into full swing now trying to distance this immoral Newpope from complicity, although the Newchurch archdiocese of Munich has publicly admitted that Newarchbishop Ratzinger in fact "did it." Benedict-Ratzinger is obviously running scared now. The Italian newspaper La Repubblica on March 14, 2010, reported that Newpope feared cases within Italy itself, some of which have already been reported, and an avalanche of claims for compensation. The payoffs from the Motarians for getting a little Latin with their Novus Ordo "Eucharistic dinner" simply won't make up for the monetary damages that Benedict-Ratzinger will have to pay once the flood gates open in Italy, as they already have in the United States, Ireland, England, Germany, Holland, Austria, and Australia.
A local newspaper in Italy has already carried an interview with a child-victim who claimed he was assaulted from age 12 to 15 by presbyters at a local Newchurch school where a "climate of fear" was prevalent through an "atmosphere of crude violence and intimidation." Said the victim: "It was physical and psychological abuse." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the UK Telegraph.]
For years, Benedict-Ratzinger, himself now implicated in the transfer of a known sex criminal to another parish, where he was convicted of raping children there, has to date let his Newchurch bishops off scot free for their sex crimes. These bishops, in what has now been exposed as a conspiracy with Benedict-Ratzinger, covered up crimes, aided and abetted the rape of children, obstructed justice, and sometimes even themselves participated directly in sex crimes against children.
Since Benedict-Ratzinger is now increasingly viewed as an accomplice in the crimes rather than their prosecutor, victims have given up on getting any justice from Newchurch or its head. They are now suing the Newbishops directly and personally. In Ireland, where members of parliament have accused Benedict-Ratzinger of obstruction of justice, a child-victim has sued an Irish bishop, Sean Brady, for obstructing justice by not forwarding her detailed report on child rape to the Irish police, known as the Gardai.
The victim is not suing the Newchurch diocese, but Sean Brady in his personal capacity. This is a new step forward to outing and meting out justice to Benedict-Ratzinger's immoral Newchurch bishops. The presbyter that Brady failed to report to police was a serial paedophile, Brendan Smyth. The victim, a girl of 14 at the time, said that Newcardinal Brady personally participated in meetings at which she reported that Smyth had brutalized her for a period of over five years. She said that Brady failed to report to police the crimes that she had reported.
Moreover, she has now revealed that Newcardinal Brady obstructed justice by intimidating her and a violated boy to sign oaths that they would not discuss their meetings with anyone. In a formal statement of March 13, 2010, Newcardinal Brady admitted that he was present at the meetings where the girl reported Smyth's crimes in detail. Until 2007, when the Gardai started investigating sex crimes by Newchurch bishops and presbyters, Newcardinal Brady had refused even to admit that he was present at these meetings.
After 1975 Newcardinal Brady allowed presbyter Smyth to go on a rampage of raping many more children. Brady could have stopped Smyth, but instead aided and abetted his crimes by transferring him from place to place before police could catch up with him. Presbyter Smyth was eventually convicted and imprisoned for the sex crimes that he been reported to Newcardinal Brady. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Sunday Independent.]
After these revelations of his complicity in sex crimes against children, which have now made him notorious cross Ireland, Newcardinal Brady has refused even to resign. No, Newcardinal Brady is unrepentant. He feels no moral compunction about facilitating the rape of children by his presbyters. "Frankly I don't believe that this is a resigning matter," Brady said.
Good Catholics, it goes without saying that if Benedict-Ratzinger were a true pope, he would waste no time firing Brady's derriere. But since Benedict-Ratzinger, when Newchurch archbishop of Munich, Germany, has now himself been exposed as personally secreting a sex criminal, it is clear that the Newchurch of the New Order, from the Unholy Father on down, has earned Our Lord's condemnation: "My house shall be called the house of prayer; but you have made it a den of thieves" (Matthew 21:13/DRV). True Catholics can only hope that the day will very soon come when the Church will be rid of this poor excuse for a pope, whose skull, in the chilling words of St. John Chrysostom, will "pave the floor of Hell" with all the other "rotten bishops."
On Laetare Sunday, March 14, 2010, Benedict-Ratzinger committed communicatio in sacris, a grave sin against the First Commandment of God, as he worshipped with the heretics in the Lutheran church at Rome. Vatican II's false "oecumenism" has lost momentum, not only among the Lutherans, who have lately rejected the New Order that Benedict-Ratzinger preaches.
Benedict-Ratzinger caused scandal by telling the German-speaking Lutheran congregation in his native German: "I think that we should first be thankful that there is so much unity. It's nice that we can pray together today, sing the same hymns together, hear the same word of God together, that we can interpret and try to understand it together."
At the service Benedict-Ratzinger played second fiddle to the hostess of the affair, a Lutheran priestess named Doris Esch. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
The German Justice Minister has called for an investigation of Benedict-Ratzinger's involvement in the sex-crime holocaust there. The Irish government is conducting an investigation into Benedict-Ratzinger's personal complicity in cover-ups of sex crimes against children there. Reports indicate that Newpope is desperately afraid that the "smoking gun" will be found in his hands and he will be forced out of office. Not only Benedict-Ratzinger's administration but now also his brother and he himself personally have been implicated. Newpope's dwindling supporters in Newvatican are frightened that the axe is going to come down hard on this man who has been one of the worst popes in the history of the Church, a duplicitous hypocrite who plays both the liberal and the conservative while doing nothing to stop Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust.
Newpope's mouthpiece is now protesting Newpope's innocence way too much. Newpope's brother, Msgr. Georg Ratzinger, denied complicity at first, then admitted that he had in fact slapped children around. The Newchurch archdiocese of Munich has publicly admitted that Josef Ratzinger, when Newarchbishop there, personally sheltered in 1980 in an archdiocesan rectory a known sex criminal, who was later transferred to a parish where he was convicted of raping more children.
The Munich archdiocese's report revealed that Newarchbishop Josef Ratzinger, had permitted a presbyter, who was known to him to have committed sex crimes, to go "on the lamb" to Munich. Ratzinger's administration then allowed the presbyter to continue working with children, and in that capacity the presbyter was later convicted of sex crimes against those children. Earlier, the Regensburg diocese reported that there had been numerous cases of sex crimes in the Regensburger Domspatzen choir, which, from 1964 to 1994, was directed by Josef's brother, Georg Ratzinger. At first Georg Ratzinger denied the charges, but then told Bavarian television that he had in fact personally slapped students around.
On March 13, 2010, Benedict-Ratzinger rolled out his mouthpiece, presbyter Federico Lombardi, to ward off those, like the German Justice Minister, who are investigating Newpope's personal complicity in sex crimes. Lombardi's statement sounded very much like a threat. What is Benedict-Ratzinger afraid of? The truth? Lombardi rebuked: "In recent days persons have been doggedly searching in Regensburg and Munich for elements to implicate the Holy Father personally in the cases of abuse."
The "Holy Father" to whom Lombardi refers is the man who in 2001 threatened bishops that if they reported to the police the sex crimes against children that their presbyters had committed, the bishops would be excommunicated from Newchurch because the crimes were supposed to be a "pontifical secret." That is simply perverted. Benedict-Ratzinger deserves instead the title of "Unholy Father," a man who sits by and watches while his children are raped and sexually assaulted.
Lombardi's threats against investigating Benedict-Ratzinger came just one day after Germany's top cleric, Newarchbishop Robert Zollitsch, met with Newpope to discuss the growing scandal. Apparently, Zollitsch wanted Newpope to be investigated. "We want to shed light on the truth ... even if many of the facts happened decades ago, the victims have a right to this," Zollitsch said after the 45-minute audience with Newpope. It was apparently in response to Zollitsch's support of an investigation of Benedict-Ratzinger that Lombardi issued his threat on behalf of Newpope. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Sueddeutsche Zeitung.]
Good Catholics, it now seems that the Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust cover-up is now being used to shelter two guilty Ratzingers: Georg and Josef, now Benedict. If Benedict-Ratzinger were truly innocent, he would call for the fullest and most open investigation of himself -- and take the consequences. Instead, he continues to shelter all sex criminals, now including apparently his own brother, Georg Ratzinger -- not to speak of himself!
Benedict-Ratzinger has turned down several invitations in 2010 for his usual summer Alpine vacation. On March 12, 2010, his spokesman said that he is not going this year. This announcement raises the question whether the growing revelations about his personal complicity in a sex-crime cover-up while he was Newarchbishop of Munich are starting to get to him. He said that he wants to remain close to Newrome.
From 2005 to 2009, Benedict-Ratzinger has always spent about two weeks in a cabin in the Italian Alps before moving to his Castle. Castel Gandolfo is only a half hour's drive or a short helicopter hop from behind the protection of Vatican City. In 2009 Newpope suffered his second fall and broke his wrist. Previously, he had fallen against a radiator and knocked himself unconscious. In addition, he has suffered two strokes and a heart attack.
Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust has now reached Benedict-Ratzinger himself. His former archdiocese of Munich, Germany, admitted that he was personally involved as archbishop from 1977 to 1982 in a decision to shelter a paedophile presbyter, Peter Hullerman, in therapy for "sexual relations with boys," in a Newchurch rectory and then to transfer that presbyter to a new parish in Grafing, where he sexually assaulted children and was eventually convicted in civil court of the crimes in 1986.
Furthermore, criticism against Ratzinger is mounting over a 2001 directive that he issued in 2001, shortly after being appointed Sex-crimes Czar by JPII, instructing bishops to keep clergy sex crimes a "pontifical secret" from police under penalty of excommunication from Newchurch. Germany's Justice Minister, Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger, has cited Ratzinger's document as evidence that he created a "wall of silence" around sex crimes cases, which prevented civil prosecution. Irish Newchurch bishops have said that they understood Ratzinger's document to mean that they shouldn't turn clergy sex criminals over to the police. An attorney for child-victims in the United States has introduced Ratzinger's document in court as evidence that he tried to obstruct justice. and that he impeded civil reporting by keeping the cases secret. "This is an international criminal conspiracy to obstruct justice," the court was informed.
On March 12, 2010, Benedict-Ratzinger got a firsthand readout of the scope of the holocaust in his native Germany from the head of the German Bishops' Conference, Newarchbishop Robert Zollitsch. Although Newpope expressed "great dismay and deep shock" over his Newchurch holocaust against children, he remained silent about his own complicity, which has now been revealed by the Newchurch archdiocese of Munich, which admitted on March 12, 2010, that with Ratzinger's personal involvement, it had allowed a presbyter implicated in a sexual assault upon a child to return to pastoral work.
Although, for propaganda purposes, the Newarchdiocese claimed that Ratzinger didn't know about the transfer, Barbara Blaned, President of the Survivors Network of Those Abused by Presbyters (SNAP), denounced Benedict-Ratzinger in the following words: "We find it extraordinarily hard to believe that Ratzinger didn't reassign the predator, or know about the reassignment." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
What are Newchurch "nuns" doing these days? Well, some of them are busy taking girls to abortion clinics, and Benedict-Ratzinger hasn't lifted a finger to stop them. Since the end of Vatican II, the number of Newchurch nuns has declined by two thirds. Nuns no longer teach children the Catholic Faith.
But "Sister" Donna Quinn is active in promoting abortion and personally escorts young girls to abortion clinics. Yet this "sister" after thirty years of this unCatholic immorality is considered by Newchurch to be "in good standing." She is still considered by the Newdominicans to be "in good standing." Why hasn't "Sister" Donna been excommunicated for the canonical crime of directly aiding an abortion? Because that's not the policy of the Benedict-Ratzinger administration, which silently suborns abortion.
"Sister" Donna is hardly unknown to Benedict-Ratzinger's Newvatican. She founded the Chicago Catholic [Sic] Women in 1974. She was a co-founder of the Women's Ordination Conference in 1976. She is a leader of WomenChurch. All of these organizations reject Catholic teaching on abortion, homosexuality, and the male priesthood. "Sister" Quinn has openly and publicly supported abortion and government funding for abortion for decades. Her biography states that her favorite causes are "reproductive choice, equal rights, lesbian and gay rights, and different faith traditions."
Good Catholics, Benedict-Ratzinger will occasionally call mouth some objection to abortion, but meanwhile his agents promote it, and he does not lift a finger against them. He does not lift a finger against his clergy who commit sex crimes against children. He does not lift a finger against bishops who regularly preach heresy. Do you see the pattern here? Benedict-Ratzinger is a fraud as a Catholic -- and as a pope.
In a German radio interview March 8, German Justice Minister Sabine Leutheusser-Schnarrenberger criticized Card. Ratzinger's 2001 Newvatican directive, requiring even the most serious sex-crime cases by Newchurch clergy against children to be first investigated within the Novus Ordo, as erecting "wall of silence" about his clergy's sex crimes.
An independent investigator was charged on March 10, 2001, to determine what crimes may have been committed by Benedict-Ratzinger's brother Georg and to determine what Benedict-Ratzinger himself new about sex crimes and assaults against pupils while Newchurch archbishop of Munich. Charges of crimes have engulfed the prestigious Regensburger Domspatzen boys choir, which was led by Georg Ratzinger, Newpope's older brother, from 1964 until 1994.
The independent investigator will thoroughly go through all existing legal papers, all court decisions, and any other information available. The first results are expected to be published within the next two weeks. The investigations will look into what Benedict-Ratzinger himself knew in his previous position as archbishop of Munich from 1977 to 1982.
A child-victims' representative demanded that Benedict-Ratzingber publicly state what he knew about the sex crimes by his clerics. "From 1977 to 1982 Josef Ratzinger was the bishop of Munich and Freising, so he must answer the question about what he knew then and what he did about it." He said that the senior officials in the church leadership could not have been unaware of the abuse, calling on authorities to take action. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by ZHD German News.]
Austria has now been dragged into Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust as one victim told national radio Oe1 on March 9, 2010, that he had been sexually attacked for six years from the age of 11 by two presbyters and a seminarian, who is now abbot of the Benedictine monastery in Salzburg, Austria. Arch-abbot Bruno Becker has resigned after he admitted that he raped the boy, who came to him for help because two other presbyters were raping him at the monastery. In 2005, the two presbyters had been arrested in Morocco for sexually assaulting Moroccan children.
Meanwhile, evidence is accumulating that pupils were regularly beaten at monastery schools, assaults to which Benedict-Ratzinger's own brother admitted. One presbyter was charged with assaulting upwards of twenty children. That presbyter is still active and "in good standing" with Newchurch. He himself has admitted to many of the crimes. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by MSNBC.]
"I slapped pupils in the face, and I always had a bad conscience" confessed the brother of Benedict-Ratzinger, Georg Ratzinger, in a March 9, 2010, interview. German authorities are investigating Newpope's brother and his staff of presbyters for crimes against children while he was headmaster of a Novus Ordo German choir school for thirty years between 1964 and 1994. A growing number of child-victims have been reporting to German police widespread assaults, sexual and otherwise, against children under his charge.
A former choir boy at Georg Ratzinger's Regensburger Domspatzen school, the official choir for the Regensburg, Germany, Newdiocese, said that he was sexually assaulted while Ratzinger was headmaster. He said that the school's choir director would "come into the dormitory at night and pick out two or three of us boys to take back to his apartment." He said that he had personally told Georg Ratzinger about the violence at the pre-school, but Ratzinger did nothing about it. "I told Ratzinger myself, but he chose not to listen."
Msgr. Georg Ratzinger made the comments to a German newspaper following charges of sexual and physical assaults against children in Newchurch schools in Benedict-Ratzinger's native Bavaria. Benedict-Ratzinger is no stranger there, as he was archbishop of Munich from 1977 to 1982. Benedict-Ratzinger's press spokesman, Federico Lombardi, admitted that "in canon law sexual abuse of minors is among the most serious offenses." He did not indicate, however, that Newpope would impose ecclesiastical sanctions upon his brother for admittedly slapping children around while he was headmaster of the choir school.
The Survivors Network of those Abused by Priests (SNAP) called Newvatican's claim that Newchurch institutions had been timely in their reaction "depressing and disingenuous." Said one official of the group: "Sadly, the truth is just the reverse. Regarding paedophile priests [sic] and corrupt bishops, the Church hierarchy responds only when forced to do so by external pressures." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Associated Press and Reuters.]
Regarding the four SSPX bishops who were excommunicated and then reinstated, did Benedict-Ratzinger make a mistake? They never repented.
The Fathers Reply.
Novus Ordo "excommunication" has become has become merely a political tool. There are even Newchurch bishops and cardinals running around teaching heresy on a regular basis, and Benedict-Ratzinger does not Novus Ordo "excommunicate" them. There are over dozens bishops who personally raped and attacked children, and Benedict-Ratzinger doesn't Novus-Ordo "excommunicate" them, not to speak of the thousands of Novus Ordo presbyters who have done the same thing.
The "unexcommunications" of the four SSPX bishops in January 2009 and their "communion" with the Newchurch of the New Order was an obvious political payoff for SSPX Superior General Bernie Fellay's sellout to the Novus Ordo system. He now accepts the Conciliar-Bugnini "Motu" Mess of 1962+, which was converted into a Half Novus Ordo Mess by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini to pave the way for the Full Novus Ordo of 1969. He had already corrupted even the most sacred rites of Holy Week so that not many changes were necessary to incorporate them into the Novus Ordo of 1969.
Is there is enough to determine whether Padre Pio has been resurrected or is an incorruptible?
The Fathers Reply.
He certainly wasn't resurrected. That notion is tantamount to blasphemy, as only Our Lord was resurrected, under His own divine power. Even the Blessed Virgin Mary was not resurrected under her own power, but was assumed into Heaven by the special grace of God.
If a body remains substantially incorrupt for a shorter or longer time, that means nothing in itself. There are all kinds of reasons why human bodies decompose at different rates. For example, when the body of John XXIII was exposed in 2000, the year in which he was beatified by Newchurch, some observers exclaimed that he was "incorrupt." This assumption was made because a pope is not supposed to be embalmed. However, it turned out that the story was false, as the mortician who had performed the embalming was still alive and explained that he had been asked to embalm the body secretly. Therefore, there is no surprise that after only forty years, he had not decomposed much, any more than had the body of Communist dictator Vladimir Lenin, who was also embalmed for exposition in "Lenin's Tomb."
The Newchurch of the New Order is so corrupt that it is a daunting task to try to document all the ways. Certainly one of the worst corruptions involves the destruction of the Sacrament of Matrimony by the New Order through granting a virtual firestorm of "Catholic divorces" -- called "annulments" so as not to offend Catholic sensibilities. But the New Order offends these sensibilities nevertheless.
The reason for Newchurch's destruction of Catholic marriage is the oldest one in the book -- greed, what St. Paul called "the root of all evils" (1 Timothy 6:10/DRV). The Saint goes on to describe the consequences of greed as undermining the Faith: "Which some coveting have erred from the faith and have entangled themselves in many sorrows." What better description is there of the current corruption in Newchurch?
Newchurch bishops browbeat their presbyters into serving as "revenue sources" for the New Order. If a presbyter doesn't refer enough "annulments" to the Newdiocese headquarters, that presbyter is berated and even demoted. Why? Because "annulments" are a lucrative business for Newchurch. The average bribe (payment) for an annulment to the Newdioceses is 500 U.S. dollars. So, if a presbyter drums up a hundred "annulments," the Newdiocese and its Newbishop rake in 50,000 dollars for the Novus Ordo coffers. For the more than 50,000 "annulments" that are perpetrated each year in the United States, for instance, the Novus Ordo defrauds its people of upwards of 25,000,000 dollars!
Now you know why Newchurch operates a "Catholic divorce" mill!
Bill Murray, Newchurch bishop of Kerry, Ireland, one of the bishops who attended Benedict-Ratzinger's Irish-Sex-crimes-against-Children Summit in February 2010, told the Irish press on March 5, 2010, that he was "embarrassed" to have to kiss the pope's ring. However, he said that he was not embarrassed that the summit was denounced by the child-victims as "nothing more than a charade."
"When it came to my turn, the person before me did it and I kissed his [the pope's] ring as well -- even though I was rather embarrassed by it," Murphy said. Traditionally, the kissing of the papal ring is a sign of respect for the office. But Newchurch bishops have no more respect for the man they recognize as the pope than they have for the innocence of children. In reality, Newchurch bishops give only lip-service to the pope. They consider themselves absolute Caesars over their own dioceses and gravely resent any interference by Newrome into their affairs.
The papal ring, also known as the Ring of the Fisherman, is cast anew in gold for each pontiff. It is used to seal official documents. It features an image of St. Peter fishing from a boat, with the pope's Latin name inscribed in raised lettering around the image. The ring is an official part of the regalia worn by the pope, who is described by the Catholic Church as the successor of St. Peter, the first pope, who was a fisherman by trade. During the rite of papal coronation, which has been dispensed with by Newchurch after Paul VI, an official of the papal court ceremonially slips the ring on the left fourth finger of the new pope.
Upon the pope's death, the ring is supposed to be ceremonially crushed in the presence of several cardinals with a silver hammer. When JPII died in 2005, however, his ring disappeared for a week and was used to forge the appointments of about two dozen bishops after the pope's death.

I was raised Catholic, as the large majority of the Portuguese population, and, although my parents were never church-going people, they believed it was their duty to baptize me, which they did when I was still a baby. I am now 33, and I strongly reject the Catholic Church's position and statements on a variety of issues. Therefore, I wish to annul my Baptism. I do not want to be in any way related to this institution, but I have no idea how this can be done. Can you please advise on what procedures I need to take in order that I can get my Baptism annulled?
The Fathers Reply.
There is no "procedure" for "annulling" a Baptism. You were baptized as an infant through the authority of your parents. According to Christian belief, you take that indelible Sacramental mark on your soul to eternity. Your beliefs may change any number of times over your life, even to heresy or apostasy, as now, but the Sacrament of Baptism is permanent. One day, perhaps even in articulo mortis, you might abhor your ingratitude for the Sacrament and abjure your apostasy.
Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust has now reached Benedict-Ratzinger's closest living relative, his elder brother Georg. German authorities have now revealed that in the thirty-year period after Vatican II, from 1964-1994, Novus Ordo presybter Georg Ratzinger was headmaster of the Bavarian Benedictine monastery school at Ettal, where "hundreds of boys were sadistically and sexually abused." Newvatican was uncharacteristically shocked into silence. Presbyter Ciro Benedettini, the deputy director of the Newvatican press office, refused to answer reporters' questions about the revelations.
German investigators raided the school on March 1, 2010. On March 5, 2010, an investigator presented a preliminary report detailing "decades of massive abuse: sexual, physical and psychological" at the school where Georg Ratzinger had been headmaster. One Munich lawyer said that over 100 students had contacted him "day and night" to tell of a "regime of terror" under Georg's regime, involving around ten different presbyters.
Pupils said that they were sexually assaulted and forced to hit each other while presbyters looked on or they were locked in the cellar at night. The investigator stated that serious mistakes were allowed to persist because of an "institutional culture of silence, of looking the other way" and a "false sense of solidarity" among the Newchurch management. Presbyer Georg Ratzinger has said that he was unaware of any complaints, but the National President of the Survivors Network of Those Abused by Priests, Barbara Blaine, issued the following statement:
Having spent decades in Germany, and considerable time in Bavaria, it's hard to imagine that Pope Benedict knew nothing about what church officials now admit are the "hundreds: of boys allegedly beaten and sexually abused at three schools in Bavaria, including one with close ties to his brother. One of the predator priests [sic] was suspended just this month. Just a few years ago, the Pope told Irish bishops: "it is important to establish the truth of what happened regarding clergy sex crimes and cover-ups in that country. It looks, however, like the pope is ignoring his own advice in his native land.
The charges of severe beatings and sex crimes at the cathedral choir in Regensburg, the Benedictine monastery school at Ettal, and a Cappuchin school in Burghausen came to light after sex crimes revealed at Jesuit schools in Germany shocked the country in February 2010. Regensburg is Benedict-Ratzinger's home Newchurch diocese, where he taught theology at the university from 1969 to 1977.
Referring to the criminal pattern that Newchurch has used in the United States, Ireland, England, Germany, Australia, Holland, and elsewhere, a spokesman for the child-victims stated: "There were very extreme cases of mishandling, which normally would have been punished with long prison sentences.... [Instead] a cloak of silence was thrown over the charges." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
Good Catholics, this revelation about Georg Ratzinger throws a hitherto unknown light on why his brother, Benedict-Ratzinger, has been covering up the rape and assault of children by Newchurch clergy. Did Benedict-Ratzinger think, or know, that his own brother had been implicated in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust? Time will tell. If Benedict-Ratzinger had any Catholic morals left, he would abdicate immediately the high office that he has brought to infamy.
AA1025: The Memoirs of an Anti-apostle documents the fact that Modernists and Communists infiltrated the Catholic Church to metamorphose it into the Newchurch of the New Order. Now the leader of the Traditional Anglican Communion, a supposedly conservative Anglican sect, heretic Archbishop John Hepworth, has been identified as a former Novus Ordo presbyter "installed" in 1968, who "flipped" in 1976 to become an Anglican minister.
Hepworth is now trying to "flip" back to the Novus Ordo sect and get his 400,000 member organization to join the Newchurch of the New Order. This strange circumstance has led observers to ask: Did Hepworth pose as an Anglican plant simply to "flip" conservative Anglicans into the Newchurch of the New Order? On November 4, 2009, Benedict-Ratzinger issued an Apostolic Constitution, Anglicanorum coetibus, to receive heretical Anglicans into "communion" with Newchurch without abjuring their heresy. (Hepworth's TAC is not associated with the Anglican sect headed by the heretical Archbishop of Canterbury, Rowan Williams.)
Good Catholics, this Anglican deception is simply another instance of duplicity on the part of Benedict-Ratzinger to boost his dwindling numbers of Newchurchers, who are leaving his Novus Ordo sect because of growing scandals in morals, liturgy, and doctrine.
At the March 3, 2010, dedication of the reconfigured "Motu" seminary in Lincoln, Nebraska, Newcardinal William Levada, the No. 3 man in Newrome, made it clear that the "Motu" Mess of 1962+, spoken of in the July 7, 2007, Motu Proprio Summorum pontificum, will be melded with more elements of the Novus Ordo at the desire of Benedict-Ratzinger.
Levada pointed to the most Novus Ordo-friendly passage of the Motu and drew attention to Benedict-Ratzinger's clearly-stated intention to change even the "Motu" Mess of 1962+ to make it more like the invalid Novus Ordo service. Levada mentioned, as one example, Benedict-Ratzinger's desire, as stated in the Motu itself, of introducing Novus Ordo Prefaces to the Consecration into the "Motu" Mess.
Levada went on to say that in the name of so-called liturgical diversity: "Whenever and wherever the Church celebrates the Eucharist according to whatever Rite or form of that Rite, it is always the same mystery of communion that is being wonderfully manifest and accomplished." In other words the invalid Novus Ordo service is equally valid even with the "Motu" Mess of 1962+. He compared the Motarians, like those in the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), to the Protestant Anglicans, who are being allowed to keep their Protestant practices and still call themselves Newchurchers.
Levada alluded to the dispute between the Protestantism of the Novus Ordo service and the pseudo-Catholicism of the "Motu" Mess, saying that "the different forms, the Ordinary and Extraordinary, must not be a cause or motive of division in the Church, for the same Eucharist is always and everywhere celebrated." No it is not -- at least if you're really a Catholic! The Novus Ordo is patently invalid by Catholic theology and papal writ!
Levada also spouted to the Motarians the heretical principle of "Living Tradition." This is not a Catholic notion; it is a Protestant one. It allows for "the people" essentially to vote on doctrine and practice. This is how the liberalist Protestants have adopted divorce, fornication, and "gay marriage" as Christian.
Good Catholics, Benedict-Ratzinger's No. 3 Man has done more to -- inadvertently -- expose the Big Lie of the Novus Ordo and of the "Motu" Mess more than anyone else recently. We thank Newcardinal Levada for his honesty in admitting to us that he, his principal at Newrome, and Newchurch as a whole are as Protestant as a Billy Graham Crusade!
Progress toward the beatification of JPII may be delayed beyond 2010, the Polish daily newspaper Rzeczpospolita reports, because doctors examining a reported miracle don't agree that it was in fact a miracle. Moreover, the Newchurch nun who was supposedly "miraculously" healed relapsed into the disease! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the ANSA News Agency.]
A member of Benedict-Ratzinger's Papal Household, already facing criminal charges for graft, is now facing additional charges that he directed a highly-active homosexual prostitution ring. Police turned over evidence that Angelo Balducci, now in jail, arranged escort services for "gay" seminarians at Newrome's most prominent seminary colleges right under Newpope's nose. Balducci used his relationship with Benedict-Ratzinger since 1995 to recruit Newchurch seminarians as prostitutes. Balducci is listed in Newrome's official Newvatican's Directory as a member of the Papal Household and a Consultant to Newvatican's Congregation on Missions.
Also involved in the scandal touching Benedict-Ratzinger himself is a choirmaster of one of the St. Peter's choirs, Chinediu Thiomas Ehiem, whom police have identified as a pimp in Balducci's prostitution ring. Ehiem has been associated with the choir for 19 years. Newvatican whisked Ehiem out of his position on March 3, 2010.
A police document prepared for magistrates and published in part by the Italian periodical demonstrated that Newpope's man Balducci was in contact with the Newvatican choir's pimp Ehiem and an Italian presbyter pimp, who were part of what the police called "an organized network ... to abet male prostitution." Police phone taps of the last two years reveal that Balducci regularly contacted his two pimps to ask them to set up appointments, at which he would pay up to 3,000 U.S. dollars for "gay" sex from Roman seminarians. Wiretap transcripts published revealed the "tricks" as seminarians. Balducci is quoted as asking Ehiem: "At what time does he have to return to the seminary?"
Balducci since 1995 has had an intimate relationship with JPII and Benedict-Ratzinger and oversaw for them the plans for the 2000 Holy Year, the 2000 Novus Ordo canonizations of Padre Pio and Opus Dei founder José Maria Escriva, and the Novus Ordo beatification of Mother Teresa in 2003. Balducci served in the Papal Household, the Apostolic Palace where Benedict-Ratzinger lives, and in St. Peter's Basilica. Balducci even carried the coffin of JPII at his Novus Ordo funeral in 2005.
The latest black eye for Benedict-Ratzinger comes on the heels of major paedophilia scandals involving the rape and assault of children by his Newchurch bishops presbyters in the United States, Ireland, England, Germany, Australia, and The Netherlands. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters and the Irish Times, and La Repubblica.]
Good Catholics, Benedict-Ratzinger's situation reminds us of that of U.S. President Richard Nixon, the first U.S. President to resign his office. The question then was: What did the President know and when did he know it? Investigators looked for the "smoking gun" -- and eventually found it. With evidence piling up on Benedict-Ratzinger's immorality in suborning and covering up sex crimes against children by his clergy, Benedict-Ratzinger may become the second pope in two millennia to resign.
Researchers from Mississippi State University considered a survey of 1,000 college students nationwide and were surprised to find that "women attending colleges and universities affiliated with the Catholic [sic] Church are almost four times as likely to have participated in 'hooking up' compared to women at secular schools." A "hook-up" is defined as a casual physical encounter with a male student, without the expectation of an ongoing relationship. Such encounters are "fornication," which is a grave sin, as condemned numerous times in the Bible, and is a violation of the sanctity of marriage.
Another new study, published alongside the Mississippi State findings in the September 2009 issue of the Journal for the Scientific Study of Religion, finds a marked difference in attendance at religious services at conservative Protestant colleges, where Christian convictions are shared and embraced by strong "moral communities." Annual declines in religious practice at Newchurch colleges are about 2.5 times the rate of public university students. Newchurch students are no more religious than their peers at public universities. The analysis directly attributes the lax religiosity at Newchurch colleges to the lack of a "clear, robust, religious tradition on many of these campuses."
A February 2010 report out of Georgetown University found significant declines in Catholic practice and fidelity among students at 34 Newchurch colleges in the United States. 31 percent of students become more "pro-choice" over four years of a Newchurch education. 39 per cent move further toward "gay marriage." 12 per cent of students leave Newchurch entirely after attending a Newchurch college. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Washington Post.]
Good Catholics, the moral of these surveys is this: if you want to remain Christian, go to a Protestant college. Or save yourself the tuition of a Newchurch college that fraudulently bills itself as "Catholic" and go to a public college. The Newchurch colleges will likely kill your Faith! As the renowned Archbishop Fulton Sheen stated just two years after the end of Vatican II:
You are better off going to a state school, where you will have the chance to fight for your faith, than going to a modern Catholic [sic] university where you will have the new watered-down, modernist version of the Faith spoon-fed to your unsuspecting minds, so that you will be apt to lose your faith.
In February 2010 a renowned Newchurch exorcist in Rome, presbyter Gabriele Amorth, released a book of memoirs in which he declares that he knows of the existence of Satanic sects in Newvatican, where participation reaches all the way to the College of Cardinals. In Memoirs of an Exorcist: My Life Fighting against Satan, Fr. Amorth affirms: "Yes, also in the Vatican there are members of Satanic sects." When asked whether members of the clergy are involved or whether participation is within the lay community only, he responded, "There are priests [sic], monsignors and also cardinals!" The book was written by Marco Tosatti, who compiled it from interviews with Fr. Amorth.
Fr. Amorth was asked how he knows that Newvatican's clergy is involved with Satanic sects. He answered, "I know from those who have been able to relate it to me, because they had a way of knowing directly. And it's something 'confessed' most times by the very demon under obedience during the exorcisms." Fr. Amorth was also asked whether Benedict-Ratzinger was aware that his clergy is participating in Satanic sects, to which Fr. Amorth replied, "Of course."
Fr. Amorth also warned of the existence of Newchurch bishops and presbyters who do not believe in Satan. "And yet, in the Gospels, Jesus speaks extensively about it, so it should be said: either they've never read the Gospels or they just don't believe it!" [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
Good Catholics, Fr. Amorth's evidence seems to give yet another basis for understanding how the post-Conciliar period, particularly the Benedict-Ratzinger period, has been so thoroughly characterized by gross immorality and grave sinfulness, depravity and perversion, malice and deceit.
Newrome has announced that on the Fourth Sunday of Lent, "Laetare" Sunday, March 14, 2010, Benedict-Ratzinger will participate actively in the Sunday service of the Protestant Evangelical Lutheran Church at Rome and will deliver the sermon in the church established by the Protestant heresiarch, Martin Luther. Canon Law (2316) recognizes this as an act bringing upon one the accusation of heresy: "Those who in any manner ... share in worship services with heretics are suspect of heresy." It is the grave and potentially excommunicating sin of communicatio in sacris.
The occasion marks the tenth anniversary of the agreement of the Newchurch of the New Order with the Lutheran World Federation on justification, the principal doctrine on which Martin Luther split from the Catholic Church. The declaration of the "joint doctrine" (Newchurch-Lutheran) of justification was signed on October 31, 1999, at Augsburg, Germany. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Zenit News Service.]
Good Catholics, it is ironic that Benedict-Ratzinger will be glad-handing the Lutherans while in January 2009 he was condemning the Society of Pius X's senior bishop, Richard Williamson for questioning the disputed secular history regarding the "holocaust." Martin Luther was blatantly anti-Semitic, and his views underlay the claimed Nazi policy of exterminating Jews during World War II. Martin Luther authored book titled, The Jews and Their Lies. Under the heavy censorship enjoyed in Benedict-Ratzinger's home country of Germany, this book has been banned in order that the truth about Martin Luther can be covered up.
George Pell, Newchurch cardinal of Sydney, Australia, thought that he would get away with sponsoring a weekly "Gay" Mess. After all, Pell is generally reputed to be "conservative." But like all the Newchurch "conservatives," he is duplicitous and not to be trusted. But now offended "conservative" Newchurchers called him on his longtime "Gay" Mess sponsorship. And Pell has been publicly exposed as a four-flushed hypocrite.
Under Pell's sponsorship "gay and lesbian Catholics" from across Sydney were welcomed to attend a "Gay" Mess at St. Joseph's Novus Ordo temple. These practicing public homosexuals did not hesitate to take the invalid Novus Ordo cookie in the hand at the Mess. In fact, they have done so for years, with the blessing of Pell. And the Mess was prominently advertised by the homosexual group Acceptance Sydney, which openly flouts Catholic moral teaching and Natural Law.
But now a Newchurch group -- mirable dictu! -- has vowed to stop Newcardinal Pell's "Gay" Messes. On February 26, 2010, group protested at the Novus Ordo temple, bringing attention to this blatant suborning of gross immorality by Pell. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Sydney Morning Herald.]
Good Catholics, this is just more duplicity from Newchurch. One cannot even trust "conservatives" -- not George Pell, and certainly not Benedict-Ratzinger!
The Dutch press has now revealed that Salesian presbyters in The Netherlands have been engaging in "widespread" rape and assaults upon children aged 12 to 18 in the order's Dutch schools. The reports indicate that the same thing has been going on in The Netherlands as in the United States, Ireland, Germany, England, Australia, and elsewhere: presbyters guilty of sex crimes "against children in one parish were simply transferred to a new parish where they could find new victims." 300 child-victims have already been identified. The abuse was so widespread that a former student said that it was "common knowledge," and a former Salesian member said that presbyters had their "favorites" fingered for sex crimes.
The current head of the Dutch bishops, Adrianus van Luyn, Newchurch bishop of Rotterdam, was head of Salesians in The Netherlands after Vatican II and was a teacher at the school at the time of the abuse. When questioned about his knowledge of the widespread crimes, he refused to deny his involvement. The Dutch Synod of Bishops has taken the usual Newchurch "do-nothing" attitude. They do not sack presbyter-criminals. Complaints about guilty presbyters are not taken seriously. Those reporting the crimes to the Dutch bishops are intimidated to silence.
It is the same story around the world, and the crimes continue unabated under Benedict-Ratzinger's immoral "stick it to the kids" policy. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Radio Netherlands.]
It appears that the Irish hate the invalid Novus Ordo service so much that they can't wait to leave. Playing up to these Newchurchers, who long ago lost the Catholic Faith, a Novus Ordo presbyter in Ireland has rolled out the latest Novus Ordo travesty, the "Quickie" Mess.
This new version of the invalid Novus Ordo service has received rave reviews by Newchurchers in Ireland. Mess attendance has increased by ten times. It won't be long before the "Quickie" Mess, lasting no more than 15 minutes, will spread around the world, and Newchurch will become even more of a laughing stock than it is. Even traditional Catholics spend far last time at Holy Mass than the Eastern Orthodox schismatics, whose Divine Liturgy often extends from an hour and a half to two hours. Protestant Fundamentalists commonly spend up to eight hours in services on Sunday.
Presbyter Michael Kenny has been packing them in at his Kilconly parish in County Galway. He cuts the Novus Ordo service to the bone, foregoes the sermon, and has a "eucharistic ministress" hand out the cookie and the Kool-Aid while he wraps up the Mess. Well, "packing them in" might be an overstatment. Only three or four Newchurchers bothered to go to Mess before their "Quickie." Now there are thirty or forty. The Newchurchers come in at 07:30 and leave no later than 07:45 with their sugar high. [Some information from this Commentary was contributed by the Belfast Telegraph.]
Further to Russ's report on the situation at the SSPX chapel in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, I wish to inform the TRADITIO Fathers that there is a vigorous enforcement in SSPX chapels around the world of the 1967 rubrics for a Missa Cantata. Yes, the 1967 rubrics! The SSPX has gone beyond the "Motu" Mess of 1962+ now -- where the congregation sits when the priest does and sings, a là a "Dialogue" Mess. Furthermore, I have personally seen American SSPXers standing at the Preface at Low Mass, just as at the Novus Ordinarians do.
The Fathers Reply.
The SSPX's head, Bernie Fellay is playing the game of Hannibal Bugnini, introducing Novus Ordo practices into the SSPX gradually, so that the SSPXers will hardly notice. This is the old "boil the frog gradually" technique that Bugnini used to introduce the invalid Novus Ordo Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service without causing the uproar that all-at-once implementation would have caused.
Before they know it, the SSPXers will be Novus Ordo all the way. Fellay is drooling to be accepted by the head of the Newchurch of the New Order, Benedict-Ratzinger -- even though he deceitfully denies the obvious reality because he fears the wrath of the SSPXers, if they figured out his Novus Ordo game.
Hundreds of radical "gay" activist Newchurchers disrupted a Novus Ordo service at Saint Jans in the Newdiocese of 's-Hertogenbosch, The Netherlands to protest the traditional teaching on homosexuality as against the Natural Law. The protestors tried to force themselves to the cookie, then left, screaming and chanting (not Gregorian!). These are not individuals "confused about their sexuality." They are notorious public advocates of immorality, who disrupt church services.
The diocese of Den Bosch, The Netherlands, has now given in to the intimidation and said that "it would no longer seek to bar homosexuals from taking communion." Publicly-practicing sodomites in the Newdiocese will be handed the Novus Ordo cookie in all Newparishes in the Newdiocese.
The Netherlands began recognizing "gay marriage" officially in 2001. Many countries and provinces around the world are also doing so. Therefore, such incidents will be staged more frequently at local Novus Ordo churches, just as here at Sint-Jan church in the city of 's-Hertogenbosch.
Already in San Francisco, California, the Newchurch archbishop, personally appointed by Benedict-Ratzinger to bring homophilia to the Baghdad by the Bay, handed out the Novus Ordo cookie to tranvestites dressed in Gothic make-up. George Niederauer was even caught on film doing so, and the film make the national news in the U.S. Neocons like Bill O'Reilly, of the Fox News Network, sided with Niederaurer! Although their politics may be somewhat conservative, Neocons are full-throated supporters of the New Order. Former U.S. House Speaker Newt Gingrich, also a political commentator on Fox and a recent convert to the Novus Ordo, is just one other example.

I would like to report to your readers about the open warfare SSPX Superior General Bernie Fellay is waging against our SSPX site here in Philadelphia. But we are fighting back against him to preserve our traditional Catholicism.
Fellay's move to push the SSPX into Modernist Rome has taken a dramatic turn. The SSPX "parish" in Philadelphia is now in open war, declared by the SSPX priest here. The priest has made several moves, all with the support of his superiors, including Bernie Fellay to bring SSPXers under the thumb of Newrome. But many of the SSPXers are fighting back! With the support of his superiors, this priest has:
But the big confrontation came when the SSPX priest tried a time-tested mind-control move. The move is something like this. A new CEO calls an all-hands meeting and states that he wants his employees to stop wearing their wrist watches on their left wrist and move it to their right. Most comply, but many ask, Why? It has nothing to do with work, so why should I do this? Well, the trick is that these people, perfectly within their rights with good reason, are now looked upon as suspect. They don't want to go along with the directive, so they are troublemakers, and something must be wrong with them. They are fired -- or, in the case of the SSPX, expelled. The move here was that the priest decided to change the local custom of when the people kneel, sit, and stand during Mass. He declared that because some were resistant to the changes, he was going to declare a war and instituted the changes anyway.
So, Bernie Fellay's war to drag SSPXers into Modernist Rome has begun in the city of Philadelphia -- but not without a fight. Many of the SSPXers here, whose donations, after all, support the whole SSPX operation, are resisting and have awakened to the manipulations of this priest who has the full support of his superiors, including Fellay.
The priest has put a person with a clicker in the back of the church, and the people must now act like automata in kneeling, sitting, or standing in response to the clicker. At a parish meeting many resisted the priest, but the priest did not care. He is implementing the mind-control changes with the full support of his superiors, including Bernie Fellay. This looks like a test battle for the rest of the SSPX.
The Fathers Reply.
We have heard several similar stories from our correspondents at other SSPX sites. Apparently, Fellay has stepped up his control over every aspect of SSPX life, and is using these Novus Ordoizing changes to test SSPXers' personal loyalty to him. If you don't obey, you're out. Several priests stood up to him, and they were expelled. Some laypeople have also been expelled. It sounds all too like Pavlov's experiments on dogs. And from what many SSPXers are writing to us Fathers, Fellay treats his SSPXers, both clery and laity, like dogs.
You are living in the "cradle of democracy." Your solution is simple, just as is the Newchurchers'. Money talks. Cut off Fellay's source of power: your money. Instead, put a note in the collection-basket saying: No taxes paid to unCatholic dictators! If you continue to fund this kind of thing in the SSPX, you have only yourself to blame.
The Traditional Latin Mass is dogmatically perfect. According to Roman Catholic Tradition, the Traditional Latin Mass (not the Bugnini-Conciliar "Motu" Mess) in all its essentials was passed on by St. Peter, the first pope, to the Church. The Apostles themselves, according to St. Ambrose, worked at its elaboration. It reached its complete perfection with Popes St. Damasus (fourth century) and St. Gregory the Great (sixth century).

On the other hand, the Novus Ordo service is invalid and dogmatically flawed. And now we have a Novus Ordo "Liturgy" Head publicly admitting it. Arthur Serratelli, the Newchurch bishop who is chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops' Committee on Divine Worship, answering serious and outspoken criticism of the New Novus Ordo "translation," admitted publicly: "it is not perfect, but perfection will come only when the liturgy on earth gives way to that of heaven, where all the saints praise God with one voice." Not true! The teaching of the Catholic Church, as given above, is that the Traditional Latin Mass is perfect and, in the well-known phrase of Fr. Frederick Faber, "the most beautiful thing this side of Heaven."
Yet another damaging admission was made by Serratelli about the defective Novus Ordo. It will never get any better. Serratelli quotes JPII as stating that the Novus Ordo service will never remain static, but will always be changing. Let's face it: the Novus Ordo is a moving target, and with each "revision" and "translation" it represents a new religion that is not Roman Catholic.

Good Catholics, the Motarians have sold out to the false notion that the invalid Novus Ordo is the "Ordinary Rite" of the Newchurch of the New Order, of which they are full-throated members, albeit under the cover of a little Latin. Bernie Fellay and his Fellayites in his Neo-SSPX are not much more Catholic. They have had to take this position as the price of Benedict-Ratzinger's extortion that unless they accept the Novus Ordo 100 per cent, their "Motu" Mess will be yanked away from them. And these pusillanimous "traditionalists" didn't even put up a struggle!
Benedict-Ratzinger has decided that if you are a Newchurcher, you can support abortion. Country after country in once Catholic Europe has adopted a pro-abortion laws, and Benedict-Ratzinger has never held Newchurch political leaders accountable to Catholic morality. Now Benedict-Ratzinger has indicated that he will take no action against Juan Carlos, the King of Spain, who will sign Spain's new pro-abortion law.
At one point Newchurch's Spanish bishops said that members of parliament who claimed to be "Catholic" and voted for the pro-abortion bill would "place themselves outside the [New]church." But then Juan Carlos indicated that he would sign the bill, and all bets were off in Newchurch. The Newbishop-spokesman, when pressed on the issue, indicated that the bishops "have excommunicated no one."
More Catholic than the pope, many Newchurchers in Spain have rejected their pope's and bishops' gravely immoral pro-abortion policy and started a petition drive to persuade King Juan Carlos not to sign the bill:
Please, Your Majesty, do not sanction this new holocaust with your signature. Without your signature the law will not go into effect. In this way, the pain and suffering of thousands of women will be avoided and, more importantly, an infinite number of defenseless lives will be saved.
In just a few days, the petition had well over 50,000 signatures. Not one Spanish Newbishop signed -- nor did Benedict-Ratzinger. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Service.]
You thought that "gay" marriage was prohibited in Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch? Think again.
Presbyter Germain Dufour, a Novus Ordo Capuchin, married a "gay couple" on February 13, 2010 in the Newdiocesan Church of Saint-Servais in Liège, Belgium. The usual C.Y.A. press release was sent out in the name of the Belgian Episcopal Conference that it was a "ceremony that leads to confusion." Not a ceremony that scored Natural Law. Not a ceremony that was sacrilege. Not a ceremony that brought with it automatic excommunication. No, it was simply "confusing."
No immediate action was taken against the presbyter. No objection was heard from Newrome or Newpope. It never is. After all, Newchurch subtlely supports homosexuality. As documented in several studies, Newchurch seminaries have been turned essentially into homosexual cathouses under Benedict-Ratzinger's announced "gay-friendly" policy. The "gay"-marrying presbyter Dufour remains a Tournai presbyter "in good standing" and "in full communion" with Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch of the New Order.

Catholic Yoga: Those are two words you don't usually hear together -- and certainly don't want to. But one day a week, Newchurchers in Chicago, Illinois, roll up their yoga mats and head to Holy Name Cathedral.
Yoga is an integral part of Hinduism, a pagan religion. The Newchurch archdiocese run by Francis George, President of the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops, even allowed one of these Buddhistic sessions on one of the most sacred Catholic days of the year: Ash Wednesday.mi
Although Newchurchers may have lost their Catholic Faith, the Hindus haven't. For Hindus, yoga is closely associated with their religion, and they find it offensive when it is detached and put into someone else's religion. Well, at least the Hindus aren't hypocrites the way the Newchurchers are! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by CBS 2 News.]

Newchurch must be ruing the day that it ever went against Catholic doctrine and introduced vulgar (vernacular) tongues into its Novus Ordo service. Since Vatican II the Novus Ordo service has been translated and retranslated and retranslated. Yet another new "translation" was rolled out in 2009. This time, however, the Newchurchers aren't buying it. They want to make up their own Novus Ordo service. As if it made any difference. The Novus Ordo is invalid on its face according to the principles of the Papal Bull Apostolicae curae.
Tens of thousands of Newchurchers are demanding a "grass-roots review" of the 2009 English version. The new version is supposed to be a "more-literal" translation of the Novus Ordo service, but the Newchurchers don't like it. It doesn't have the "swing" of the more Protestant and colloquial version currently in use. The Newjesuit periodical America, in its December 14, 2009, issue, admitted "how difficult it's going to be to 'sell' ordinary, faithful, good Catholics [sic]" on the new English translation.
The reason for the widespread rejection is that the Newchurch of the New Order is just as radical as ever. It clings to the Modernist Council Vatican II and views any retreat from the unCatholic principles that it established to be treason to the New Order. These Newchurchers have a reaction similar to those of crazed "abortion-rights" people who view even the killing of babies half born as a "right." "Not in my wildest dreams," said the Novus Ordo presbyter in America, "would it have occurred to me then that I would live to witness what seems more and more like the systematic dismantling of the great vision of the Council's decree [to introduce a New Mess]."
The presbyter decries that there are now three "Masses" in the Roman Church. The invalid Novus Ordo service of 1969+, the kind-of-Half-Novus-Ordo "Motu" Mess of 1962+, and the true Mass, the Traditional Latin Mass, which is banned by the Newchurch of the New Order, but is nevertheless maintained by courageous traditional priests outside the New Order structure.
The presbyter predicts that, when and if these new translations are eventually imposed upon Newparishes throughout the English-speaking world, there will be "an almost certain fiasco." So, tens of thousands of Newchurchers have already demanded that implementation of the 2009 version of the Novus Ordo service be postponed until it can be "market tested."

Good Catholics, now you see what Vatican II and its Novus Ordo have come to: make up your own Mess. You, on the contrary, should thank the Lord every day in your prayers that you do not have anything to do with this nonsense. That you have the Traditional Latin Mass, perfected from Apostolic times and canonized for all time. As St. Paul says, "God is not mocked" (Galatians 6:7/DRV). So, go ahead, have a divine laugh at those crazy Newchurch!
I draw your readers' attention to my new feature story, "Irish Report." In it, I present my first-hand report, during a recent trip to Ireland, on how the Irish man-in-the-street is reacting to Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, which has swept the public consciousness after the government's Murphy Report of November 2009 demonstrated that Newchurch presbyters have been routinely raping and assaulting children in Church schools with the connivance of the Irish bishops.
