At the time of the election of Francis-Bergoglio in March 2013, Scotland's Newcardinal Keith O'Brien made headlines when he barred himself from the Newconclave because he was hit with numerous charges of sexual assaults. These assaults were against his own Newseminarians and presbyters, whom he assailed under the color of "authority" as their Newcardinal. These New Order victims just couldn't tolerate O'Brien's immoral actions, so they publicly outed him before the Newconclave.
Now it has come to light that Scotland's Newprimate had been the subject of an investigation being conducted by the Newbishops' Conference of Scotland, an investigation that he shut down in 2012, a year before his own exposure as a sex criminal. The Cardinal stepped down as Archbishop of Edinburgh in February 2013 after current and former presbyters charged him with sex crimes against them.
O'Brien's Newarchdiocese was rabid with paedophiliac crimes by Newclergy against child victims. In the Newchurch newspaper The Tablet, the Newarchbishop of Glasgow, Mario Conti, has now publicly ratted on O'Brien. A police investigation is currently under way into rampant sex crimes against children at two Newchurch boarding schools in the Scottish Highlands. More than 20 children have come forward to say they were victims of sex crimes by the Newbenedictines who ran two schools of the New Order sect.
Good Catholics, the Newbishops, Newarchbishops, Newcardinals, and Newpopes of the Newchurch of the New Order are the worst criminals of all. Since they were never consecrated in the valid traditional Sacrament of Holy Orders, they have been operating entirely without the grace of God. No wonder these criminal Newclergy have fallen under the wrath of God, as St. Paul described it: "Who, having known the justice of God, did not understand that they who do such things, are worthy of death: and not only they that do them, but they also that consent to them that do them" (Romans 1:32/DRV).
Is Bergoglio Catholic? The evidence is mounting that he is nothing but a Pagan in a white suit. He denies God's Natural Law and the Catholic moral doctrine based upon it in a crazed, helter-skelter fashion. He seems to have a special predilection to normalize homosexual behavior. Francis "The Flake" Bergoglio has certainly earned his eponymn!
Bergoglio decrees, in his book to be released by Newvatican during the week of August 25, 2013, that you can commit sodomy, traditionally one of the Four Sins that Cry out to God for Retribution, as long as you wear a condom. If you spit in God's face by violating His Natural Law, just be sure you don't get AIDS! According to Bergoglio, sodomy with a condom is a "more humane sexuality." So, according to Bergoglio, his Newclergy can sodomize children as long as they are "humane" enough to wear a condom. He says that goes for male prostitutes too. Bergoglio should know. The Newmonsignor whom he appointed oversee his Vatican Bank was caught sodomizing a male prostitute in an elevator at a Newpapal nuntiature!
To Bergoglio, the "horror" is HIV infection, not sodomy. And Bergoglio claims to be the Vicar of Christ? Do you have any doubt what Christ would say about Bergoglio and his corrupt morality that sodomizes children with impunity? Apparently, Bergoglio is rapidly going down the road to Hell spoken of by St. John Chrysostom for bishops. Just last year Bergoglio stated publicly that condom use could actually worsen the problem of AIDS. It seems that the "Gay Lobby" Bergoglio claims runs his Newvatican has gotten to him too, in just the five months since his election.
In his book Bergoglio once again says that the Newpapal office "was not his calling." For Heaven's sake, then, why did he accept the office? It's not too late for him to resign and join his buddy Benedict-Ratzinger in the sumptuous Newpopes' Retirement Villa. Then we could have not one, not two, but three Newpopes jointly reigning! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Telegraph.]
On August 23, 2013, Francis-Bergoglio took further steps to dismantle the Newpapacy by insisting that he be addressed by the familiar Italian second-person singular rather than the formal second-person plural. Those who have studied any of the Latin-based languages, like Italian, Spanish, and French, know that the Latin second-person plural came to be used in these languages with a singular meaning, but with a formal tone. In these languages, the familiar second-person singular form is used to address children, animals, and intimates, whereas the plural form is used to address adults, civil and religious authorities, and one's elders.
It seems that now Bergoglio wants to be addressed in the familiar second-person singular form tu, like a child or an animal. This is in full accord with the radical post-Vatican II Modernist sect that, in essence, regards Our Lord Jesus Christ as a "buddy" rather than, as Sacred Scripture enjoins: "that in the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of those that are in heaven, on earth, and under the earth" (Philippians 2:10/DRV). Bergoglio is clearly signalling that he does not worship Christ as God. My gosh, it's the fourth-century Arian heresy all over again! -- which St. Augustine, St. Jerome, and others tell us swept up several of the popes into heresy. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic-Herald UK.]
The "buddy" religion dovetails completely with the New Order sect's "communion" in the hand, ministresses wandering around the "altar" in the "sanctuary," unordained presbyters (really ministers) "performing" a phony and invalid Novus Ordo Protestantized service, and Novus Ordo congregations dressed in clothing that would be more fitting at the beach. Oops, Bergoglio himself "did" a "Beach Mess" at Copacabana, didn't he? Now you know exactly from whom the latest Novus Ordo nonsense comes from -- Bergoglio himself!
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
You wrote that the Benedict-Ratzinger's "Mess of 1962+," incorrectly termed the "Extraordinary Mess," is also invalid because it is simulated by unordained presbyters of the New Order sect. But what if someone ordained in the traditional rite of Holy Orders in the New Order sect performs the "Extraordinary Mess" for the unCatholic New Order sect? Is that Mess valid?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
No, such a "Mass" must be assumed to be invalid. Those who were ordained as priests before the Church became the New Order sect in the Vatican II period (1962-1965) can be assumed to be performing invalid services, even if they use the "Extraordinary Mess." Such "priests" have become attached to the Modernist, and thus heretical, New Order sect, which is essentially Protestant. Thus, the required valid intention can be assumed to be defective in such "priests," on the basis of Pope Leo XIII's Papal Bull "Apostolicae Curae" of 1896.
For further information, click on CURAE: Apostolic Letter Apostolicae Curae, Given by His Holiness Pope Leo XIII in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics). Information on this topic will also be found in FAQ03: Should I Ever Attend the "New Mass" and "New Sacraments" in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics) department, in Rule No. 3.
Rather than looking for technical excuses to remain part of the unCatholic New Order sect, which differs radically in liturgy, doctrine, and morals from the Catholic and Apostolic Faith of two millennia, true Catholics can have no part in religious matters with the New Order sect or its Newclergy, whatever they call themselves, just as one cannot have any part in religious matters with Protestant sects or their ministers. Moreover, the experience of the last fifty years demonstrates clearly that anyone who tries to compromise in any way with the unCatholic New Order sect ends up being swallowed up into its Modernist heresy.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I know that you must have answered this question many times in the past, but for the benefit of us new readers of TRADITIO, could you answer once again: Is the "New Mass," what Benedict-Ratzinger called the "Ordinary Rite" of the New Order sect, valid? That is, are the bread and wine really transubstantiaed into the Body and Blood of Christ? Or is the "New Mass" a graceless fraud that leads only to Hell?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
The so-called "New Mass," or Novus Ordo service, that was imposed in the Newchurch of the New Order in 1969, is never valid. As you have correctly expressed it, it is a graceless fraud that leads only to Hell. In fact, it is not a Catholic Mass at all.
First, the "New Mass" is founded on the errors of Protestantism, Freemasonry, and even paganism. It must be rejected as clearly unCatholic, sacrilegious, irreverent, scandalous, blasphemous, idolatrous, and conclusively invalid, because it fails to meet one or more of the three criteria established in Catholic Dogmatic and Sacramental theology for a valid Mass, as most cogently expressed in Pope Leo XIII's Papal Bull Apostolicae Curae. For further information, click on CURAE: Apostolic Letter Apostolicae Curae, Given by His Holiness Pope Leo XIII in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics).
Second, the Novus Ordo service is performed not by priests validly ordained in traditional Holy Orders of two millennia "to offer the Sacrifice of the Mass for the living and the dead," but by presbyters invalidly "installed" under the so-called "New Ordinal" "to preside over the assembly of the people." This "New Ordinal" was fabricated in 1969 by a Freemason presbyter (Hannibal Bugnini), who wrote it with the assistance of his Committee of Six Protestant ministers. In essence, these presbyters are Protestant ministers; they are not Catholic priests. For further information, click on FAQ03: Should I Ever Attend the "New Mass" and "New Sacraments"? in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics).
The invalidity of the "New Mass," which is not a Mass, but a Protestant service, was clearly pointed out when it was introduced in 1969 by the Pro-Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, Alfredo Cardinal Ottaviani, together with Antonio Cardinal Bacci and a number of Roman theologians. For further information, click on OTTAVIANI.: Ottaviani Intervention: Short Critical Study of the New Order of Mass in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apolgetics.
We should also clarify that the "Motu" Mess, that is, Ratzinger's "Mess of 1962+" is also invalid because it is simulated by unordained presbyters of the New Order sect. So this erroneously-termed "Extraordinary Rite" is not valid either. You must find a fully Traditional Latin Mass outside the New Order sect, celebrated by a traditional Catholic priest; otherwise, you are wasting your time on a graceless fraud. For further information, click on the TRADITIO Network's Official Traditional Catholic Directory department, provided to the TRADITIO Network by the National Registry of Traditional Latin Masses. A true Catholic cannot settle for anything less.
Yet another of Francis-Bergoglio's personal appointments is causing a scandal. The Italian press has already revealed that he appointed a predatory paedophile presbyter who hires boy prostitutes as head of the Vatican Bank and, as the Vatican Bank's Chief Accountant, a Newmonsignor with Mafia connections. The latter has been arrested by the Rome police on money-laudering and fraud charges. Yet we are told that Bergoglio works so hard on his new appointments!
Bergoglio has appointed Francesca Chaouqui, who is said to have "connections" with Newvatican officials, to be the Public Relations Head for his Privy Council of eight Newcardinals, whom he appointed essentially to run Newchurch because, as he has publicly admitted, he himself doesn't have the "organizational skills" to do so. Chaouqui certainly doesn't reflect Catholic modesty. She is frequently attired in a leather jacket provocatively unzipped to reveal her "qualifications." Recently she appeared in a photograph with an unnamed "partner," both semi-nude. Supposedly, Bergoglio was bringing in "fresh blood," but it seems that Chaouqui's "qualifications" are more external than her blood!
But risque as Bergoglio's new P.R. babe is, Newvatican officials besides Bergoglio consider Chaouqui scandalous more for her press work. She reported that Newcardinal Tarcisio Bertone, second only to Bergoglio in power as Secretary of State, was "corrupt." Bertone is now suing her. Chaouqui also reported that Benedict-Ratzinger resigned because he has leukaemia. She also reported that Ratzinger's butler was not the one who leaked sensitive Newvatican documents showing corruption in the Ratzinger regime. Chaouqui said that the innocent Paolo Gabriele was merely the fall guy, who ended up in prison in lieu of a certain high Newvatican official, who was the real leaker. Actually, it seems that Chaouqui, in addition to her other "qualifications," has the instincts of a fine investigative reporter. She may well be right on all three counts -- much to the chagrin of her new employer, Bergoglio!
Bergoglio's Newpapal spokesman said that, in spite of the Chaouqui scandal, Bergoglio is standing by his new P.R. babe. No surprise there. Newpopes are too gutless to fire anyone, no matter how objectionable. Whatever happened to the ancient Roman principle that "Caesar's wife must be above suspicion"? [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Sunday [London] Times.]
If you were wondering why Benedict-Ratzinger was the first pope in six centuries to abdicate, on February 28, 2013, now we have the reason from his own lips: "God told me to do it!" Ratzinger says that he had a "mystical experience," though not a vision, in which God told him that he was through. Apparently, God was especially angry at Ratzinger's role in supporting paedophile presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals, who raped and sodomized God's children with impunity over Ratzinger's eight-year reign as Newpope.
The Zenit press agency reported on August 21, 2013, that Ratzinger admitted this experience to a visitor to his retirement villa in the Vatican Gardens. The visitor also revealed that Ratzinger, often erroneously portrayed in the press as a conservative, indicated that he thought that the radicalizing of Newchurch being carried on by his successor, Francis-Bergoglio, was "wanted by God." In fact, Bergoglio's actions in appointing corrupt officials, now under arrest by the Italian government, to head his Vatican Bank and in stating that he cannot judge the sodomists who continue to rape children under his protection have caused worldwide scandal in just the first five months of his reign. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
Good Catholics, we TRADITIO Fathers have warned for decades that Ratzinger was a Modernistic mole planted in the Newchurch of the New Order and given a "conservative" veneer to trick the Neocon Newchurchers and pseudo-traditionalists into sinking further into the pit of the New Order heresy. The clueless Bernie Fellay, Superior-Dictator of the Neo-SSPX, fell for it, as did many others pseudo-traditionalists. Once again the TRADITIO Fathers' analysis has been proved correct. Ratzinger was a Modernist plant all along -- or just plain demented. Take your pick!
If you think that Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust is over, think again. The mentality of the Newpopes and their Newprelates is just as self-centered and corrupt as ever. Bergoglio is no "Mr. Humililty." He wants to throw the children raped by Newclergy under the bus, having publicly stated on July 28, 2013, that their crimes should be "forgotten." Too bad the raped children can't forget the experience!
In a lengthy letter to his accomplice presbyters, leaked to the press, Myers denounced the child victims as "evil, wrong, immoral." But those are the very words that describe Myers himself to a T! Myers is a good example of the moral sewers (to use Dante Alighieri's term) that JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and now Francis-Bergoglio have appointed to lead their corrupt Newchurch of the New Order. Remember, this graceless ilk are not even bishops. They have never been valid consecrated as such since the implementation of the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini's Protestanized and invalid New Ordinal of 1968.
Myers wigged out when the press reported that he had lied when he said that he knew nothing about his predator paedophile presbyter, but court documents just released indicated that Myers's office had received the information; he just hadn't acted upon in it. Now Myers has been hit in the only way that these avaricious Newbishops understand -- in their wallet. Myers will be paying 1,350,000 dollars for "supervising" the sex crimes.
"Monsignor" Thomas Maloney was twice reported to Myers' office as a paedophile. A woman said that he had assaulted her, and, just one month later, a boy said that he had assaulted him. At the time Myers was Newbishop of Peoria, Illinois. He did such a bang-up job there that the "Unblessed" JPII-Wojtyla promoted him to become Newarchbishop of New Jersey in 2001.
Myers has been denounced by many state officials in New Jersey and by the child victims. The mother of the boy said that she was stunned by the Newarchbishop's words and that he struck an "intimidating" tone toward victims of Newclergy sexual attacks and their supporters, like Myers. A pattern of intimidation of child victims by Newchurch from its Newpopes on down has been fully documented around the world. Two United Nations Commissions have summoned Francis-Bergoglio in 2014 to answer charges that he and his Newchurch have perpetuated a programme of assault and torture of children, contrary to two international Conventions signed by Newvatican.
Court documents also include letters in Myers's personnel file that he specifically befriended that paedophile Newmonsignor. Now, of course, Myers denies the connection, throwing the Newmonsignor under the bus and saying that he did not consider him to be a "very close personal friend." Myers failed to supervise properly another of his presbyters, who was arrested in May 2013 for crimes against children and allowed another paedophiliac presbyter to live in the rectory of a Newparish without warning anyone there of his criminal past. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the North Jersey Herald.]
Good Catholics, by now Myers's corruption is so well documented that even New Jersey state officials have gotten into the picture and called for his resignation. Naturally, Bergoglio will keep him on. How can we not but recall Our Lord's condemnation of the Church of his time as a "den of robbers" (Luke 19:46/DRV) and a "brood of vipers" (Matthew 3:7/DRV). What Newchurch needs now is an Infallible Exterminator!
In the last five months, the goal of Francis-Bergoglio has become clear: to Protestantize the Newchurch of the New Order even further and to degrade, if not eliminate, the office of the Newpapacy. This fact was confirmed on August 9, 2013, by Newcardinal Oswald Gracias, one of the eight "Super-Newcardinals" that Bergoglio has appointed essentially to run Newchurch in his name, who recently had a one-on-one meeting with Bergoglio.
Super-Newcardinal Oswald Gracias, of Bombay, India, told the press that in October 2013 Bergoglio's Privy Council will begin to take power away from the Newpapacy and place it in the hands of the National Newbishops' Conferences, which derive from the Protestant Revolution of Martin Luther, when the Universal Roman Church was broken up into autonomous national sects.
Bergoglio has previously indicated that he is on board with a gross degradation of the Newpapal office. He has previously stated to the international press that he does not want to be pope and that Rome makes him psychologically "sick." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic Register.]
Bergoglio has been summoned to account before the United Nations Commission against Torture in May 2014. Bergoglio was already summoned to appear before the United Nations Commission on the Rights of the Child in January 2014. On behalf of Newchurch, Wojtyla signed the international 1989 Convention on the Rights of the Child and the 1984 international Convention against Torture.
Yet Wojtyla, Ratzinger, and Bergoglio have all failed to submit the required annual report documenting what action they have taken to honor the Conventions, but have instead perpetrated a decades-long and massive cover-up of their crimes against children. The two U.N. Commissions are now going to hold Bergoglio to account for Newchurch's failures. It is no surprise that the Newpopes want to get credit for signing the Conventions, but don't want actually to do anything to protect children.
To the contrary, these three Newpopes have all stood by, and even supported, their criminal Newchurch clergy, who have assaulted, raped, and sodomized children with impunity. The child victims hoped that Bergoglio would sing a different song and become their protector instead of their violator, as were the First Paedophile Newpope Wojtyla and the Second Paedophile Pope Ratzinger.
But Bergoglio has turned out to be the Third Paedophile Pope, even worse than Ratzinger and Wojtyla, because Bergoglio personally told the world in a July 28, 2013, press conference that his Newclergy's crimes against children should not only be "forgiven, but forgotten." Too bad the children can't forget the tortures perpetrated upon them by Newchurch cardinals, bishops, and presbyters! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the New York Times.]
Benedict-Ratzinger deftly applied the principles of the political schemer, Niccolo Machiavelli, to deceive the pseudo-traditionalists into accepting the Half New Order "Mess of 1962+," sometimes erroneously termed the "Extraordinary Mess," simulated by unordained presbyters of the New Order. It is scary to see to what degree Benedict-Ratzinger followed step by step Machievelli's corrupt principles to dupe the pseudo-traditionalists, who include Bernie Fellay and his Neo-SSPX. Machievelli was one of the sharpest political analysts in history. His 1532 Il Principe [The Prince] is considered to be one of the greatest works of political strategy ever written.
Already in 1517 Machievelli, on the basis of his studies of the monumental Roman history of Titus Livius, had made recommendations to modern politicians on how to use deception to put over on the people their modernizing schemes. One of the recommendations that Machievelli made was to introduce modernizing changes with a veneer of the traditional, so that clueless people would swallow the modernizations, deceived by the veneer of the traditional. This is exactly how the Newchurch of the New Order and its Chief Architect, the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, who fabricated both the Half New Order Vatican II "Mess of 1962+" (erroneously termed by the deceitful Benedict-Ratzinger the "Extraordinary Rite") and the Full-blown New Order of 1962 ("Ordinary Rite") of the New Order, implemented the untraditional 1962 Mess and the invalid 1969 Mess according to the principles of deception authored Machievelli, who insightfully wrote in his Discorsi sopra la Prima Deca de Tito Livio [Discorses on the First Ten Books of Livy]:
He who desires or attempts to modernize ... and wishes to have it accepted and capable of maintaining itself to the satisfaction of everybody, must at least retain the semblance of the old forms, in order that it may seem to the people that there has been no change in the institutions, even though in fact they are entirely different from the old ones. For the great majority of mankind are satisfied with appearances, as though they were realities, and are often even more influenced by the things that seem than by those that are.... For as all novelties excite the minds of men, it is important to retain in such innovations as much as possible the previously existing forms.
A truer statement of the cluelessness of the pseudo-traditionalists has not been written. They, who cling even now to the Freemason presbyter Hannibals Bugnini's Half Novus Ordo 1962 ("Extraordinary Rite"), have been completely duped by Machievelli, Bugnini, Ratzinger, and their unCatholic minions, to accept a phony pseudo "Latin Mess" that is certainly now the Traditional Latin Mass of two millennia!
Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch bishops in California schemed in an attempt to kill a bill in the California State Legislature that would have allowed the victims of their criminal presbyters and Newbishops just one year more to get their just recompense in court. The Newchurch bishops, who mostly stood by mute while the abomination of "gay marriage" was illegally implemented in that state, expressed "fierce opposition" to extending the statute of limitations for child victims of Bergoglio's Newchurch for just one year.
In 2002, the legislature signed off on a similar one-year window. Hundreds of child victims filed claims against Newchurch, then run by the Second Paedophile Newpope, "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla. In reaction, one victim testified to an Assembly committee that she had spent years in therapy grappling with sexual assaults by Newchurch presbyters, which began when she was in second grade. "I go to sleep every night thinking that, had I been able to tell, other little children would not have been abused."
Seven committee members abstained on the vote, so another vote is pending. Other Assembly committees and the California State Senate have already approved the bill. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Los Angeles Times.]
On the Feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary, August 15, 2013, the Italian newspaper Il Mattino revealed the Francis-Bergoglio's Vatican Bank accountant, Newmonsignor Nunzio Scarano, currently under arrest in Italy for illegally trying to launder 27,000,000 U.S. dollars on an Italian-government flight from Switzerland to Newvatican, is associated with the Mafia. Scarano tried to conceal the money under the guise of a transaction for a religious organization, L'opera del Gregge del Bamin Ges¨ [The works of the Flock of the Infant Jesus], which has known connections to the Mafia.
Newmonsignor Scarano was working in Bergoglio's Administration of the Patrimony of the Apostolic See, the organization that handles money for Bergoglio. Ironically, Bergoglio appointed Scarano to be a member of a new commission for reforming the gross illegalities Vatican Bank -- while he was himself perpetrating them! Scarano is also being investigated by Italian prosecutors for converting funds from the Vatican Bank to pay off his personal home mortgage. He is accused of opening accounts for his friends, to which Vatican Bank funds were illegally transferred as part of an international money-laundering crime syndicate. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
Good Catholics, what can be said but that these Modernist Newpopes sure know how to pick them! The "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla in particular was accused of having personal association with the Mafia in the handling of Newchurch funds. Now Francis "the Flake" Bergoglio has already equaled, if not exceeded, the criminality of his predecessors.
Child victims and other creditors in the bankruptcy case of the Newarchdiocese of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, have demanded the removal of the federal judge hearing the case for bias toward Newchurch, because his relatives are buried in the Newarchdiocese cemetery, in which former Newarchbishop Timothy Dolan, now Newcardinal of New York and President of the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops, improperly secreted 50,000,000 dollars so that the child victims of Newchurch clergy would not receive justified damages. Dolan's predecessor, Newarchbishop Rembert Weakland, had stolen another half million dollars from the collection-plate to pay hush money to his "gay" lover.
In July 2013 Judge Rudolph Randa ruled that Dolan had acted within its rights in stealing 50,000,000 dollars from the collection-plate to secret it in a cemetery fund, in order that this money would be unavailable to pay off debts and compensation to child victims. As court documents revealed, Newcardinal Dolan had engaged knowingly in a conspiracy with Benedict-Ratzinger to secret the funds.
The victims, after obtaining the records of the Newarchdiocese's cemeteries, the victims and creditors are arguing that the judge should be removed because the judge's own parents and other family members are buried in the cemeteries serviced by the stolen monies.

Dear TRADITIO Fathers
There is more evidence from its latest bulletin, that Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX is showing more signs of branding to the New Order and friendliness to Modernist Rome. The Neo-SSPX is saying that there are some positive things in Francis-Bergoglio's joint encyclical letter, Lumen fidei. The bulletin quotes a few paragraphs at the end that can barely elicit opposition to "gay" marriage. That encyclical letter, which should have condemned that concept, together with homosexuality, lesbianism, bisexuality, and trangenderism, as morally corrupt and an abomination against God's Natural Law, could not seem to find the clear words to do so. Is Fellay reverting back to his Novus Ordoism and now playing the sycophant to Francis "the Flake" Bergoglio?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Fellay has proven himself to be absolutely untrustworthy. He is a chameleon who changes his color to suit whatever audience he addresses. "The end justifies the means" is his unCatholic episcopal motto. And his end in recent years is the sellout of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre's once traditional Catholic organization to the unCatholic Newchurch of the New Order.
Newpope Paul VI-Montini introduced a "Newcross" on December 8, 1965, at the official closing of the Second Vatican Council. JP I-Luciani, JPII-Wojtyla, and Benedict-Ratzinger all used it, although Ratzinger seemed to use it less in his later years. In fact, Benedict-Ratzinger used it at his Newpapal "installation" on April 25, 2005. Now Francis-Bergoglio has reintroduced the Newcross with a vengeance!
The "Newcross" is said to have been modeled after the "Bent Crucifix," or, as some call it, the "Twisted Serpent," which has Satanic associations. It consists of a bent, or broken, crucifix with a distorted figure of the Christ. For further information, click on FAQ10: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Beliefs? in the section "Papal Crucifix."
If Our Lady were today to prophesy the future, her prophecy to us might very well run as follows:
Good Catholics, what can you do to fight these deceitful denials of Our Lord? Keep representations of the True Cross in your homes, along with the Holy Water provided to you by true priests. Bless yourselves with it frequently. Secure a copy of the true Bible and read it daily. Worship only at the fully Traditional Latin Mass, not the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini's Half Novus Ordo Vatican II "Mess of 1962+," now erroneously dubbed the "Extraordinary Rite," or his Full-blown New Order Mess of 1969.
The Secret Archives of Newchurch in Scotland, if open, would contain many more cases of Newchurch clergy's rape and sexual assault against children, estimated to involve 100 criminal presbyters going back as early as the period of the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965). 22 criminal presbyters have already been outed in just the period 1985-1995. Every diocese is required to have a Secret Archive, in which the crimes of individual presbyters is documented, secreted from public scrutiny.
Newchurch's own head investigator for child protection, Alan Draper, derided Newchurch's plans to publish annual audits of presbyters' sex crimes against children as "window dressing." Draper issued his denunciation on the day Newbishop Hugh Gilbert, of Aberdeen, admitted to sex crimes at two Scottish schools run by Newchurch. Draper demanded that an independent commission should be allowed access to the archives of each of the eight Newchurch dioceses in Scotland. On the basis of his investigation Newchurch's own child-protection director denounced Newchurch's cover-up tactics:
This organisation [Newchurch] lacks all credibility. This [an annual audit] is a step, but it is a very small step, and it is not appropriate for the [New]church to lead this process. We need an independent audit going back at least 50 years, whereby the dioceses open their records for proper scrutiny, and it should be a minimum of three people, with participation of victims in the process.
A British Broadcasting Corporation investigation, broadcast the week of August 4, 2013, uncovered evidence of physical violence and sexual assault, including rape by Benedictine monks at the fee-paying schools, which have since been closed. The cases of Newchurch's criminal paedophilia are now being investigated by Police Scotland. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by The Scotsman.]
On August 9, 2013, the Superior of the Newchurch Franciscans revealed that there was a lethal internal war going on between the small minority wanting the erroneously-termed "Extraordinary Rite," that is, the Half New Order Modernist Vatican II rite engineered by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, and the great majority wanting the Ordinary Rite, the Full-blown New Order Mess of 1969. It is this wrangling between Newchurchers themselves that will cause the rapid demise of the "Extraordinary Rite." This wrangling has already been used in several locations by Bergoglio and his Newbishops to shut down the phony "Extraordinary Rite."
In a July 11, 2013, Protocol, the Newchurch Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life promulgated Francis-Bergoglio's decree that all the Friars "celebrate the liturgy according to the Ordinary Rite," that is, the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Novus Ordo service of 1969.
The Friars' Superior, Fr. Stefano Manelli, issued a statement on August 3, 2013, that his Order would submit to Bergoglio's suppression of the "Extraordinary Rite." Manelli said that that the Friars could not be forced to use the "Extrordinary Rite," but were always free to use the Ordinary Rite. In order to make the point clearer, Manelli said that he himself performed the Ordinary Rite. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Service.]
Good Catholics, the suppression of the "Extraordinary Rite" is not to be lamented because it is the poisoned fruit of Vatican II and it is invalidly performed by Novus Ordo presbyters who have never been ordained "to offer Mass for the living and the dead," but merely "installed to preside over the assembly of the people." The sooner the "Mess of 1962+" is jettisoned, the sooner Newchurch pseudo-traditionalists will be forced to realize that Benedict-Ratzinger's "Motu" Mess is just a Great Hoax, and that they have sold our their Catholic Faith for a Modernist-Protestant ruse.
On August 9, 2013, Francis-Bergoglio proclaimed Charismaticism in the Newchurch of the New Order to be a "gift to the whole Church." In fact, it has its roots in the Protestant heresy -- and worse. The roots of modern-day Charismaticism (Pentecostalism) go back to 1901 when a group of Methodists at a Topeka, Kansas, prayer meeting began "experiencing the spirit." A typical charismatic prayer meeting includes trash music, singing or praying in tongues, healing sessions, prophesying, and body prayer. The phenomenon caught on nationwide in the New Order sect after the Modernist Vatican II Council.
Associated with the Charismatic heresy is the "Properity Gospel," a New Age type of psycho-religion, followed by certain Evangelical Protestant sects, currently best exemplified by Joel Osteen, a television "personality" who shovels out a phony Christianity without the Bible and promises material wealth to his clueless sheep. His basic teaching is that if you accept Jesus Christ, you will become materially wealthy. Osteen is denounced even by Protestant ministers for never speaking of sin and repentance. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Service.]
Charismaticism in Newchurch is associated with such cult-like, mind-controlling organizations and programmes as the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine (CCD, which was perfectly traditional before Vatican II, but afterwards was corrupted), Taize, "oecumenism," Marriage Encounter, the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA), Renew, Focolare, Cursillo, Neo-Catechumenate, Legionaries of Christ/Regnum Christi (the organization headed by the Arch-paedophile Marciel Maciel), Communion and Liberation, Miles Jesu, Wicca (Gaia), and Life Teen. Charismaticism bears a frightening relationship to several heresies specifically condemned by the Church: Gnosticism, Messalianism, Montanism, and Nominalism. For further information, click on FAQ10: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Beliefs? in the section "Charismatic Movement."
It is to this Charismatic heresy that Francis-Bergoglio has given his Good Housekeeping seal of approval. In fact, he has perpetrated this frightening nonsense himself, conducting a "Beach Mess" at Copacabana Beach, Brazil, during his July 23-28, 2013, World Youth Day Messes, with the attendees "swaying from side to side, arms raised in the air" in a trance engendered by the accompaniment of trash music.
Newchurch is promoting this heresy because it has been losing members right and left to Protestant Charismatics and Pentecostals. As usual, instead of lifting people to a more rational, sublime religion, Newchurch gets down in the muck with other devotees of modern-day trash religion, which is no more than a mindless cult. Charismaticism emphasizes the "spirit," features faith healing and speaking in tongues, and is spread by those annoying door-to-door peddlers of cults.
Good Catholics, Bergoglio once criticized Charismatics by saying: "These people confuse a liturgical celebration with samba lessons." Now he is Head Charismatic, swinging and swaying with the rest of the heretics!
The TRADITIO Fathers have long held the "con-anizations" of the New Order of their Modernists to be invalid under the theology of the Church as propounded by its Universal Doctor, St. Thomas Aquinas. St. Thomas holds that canonizatons are not "infallible," but can be considered invalid when erroneously declared. Since the 1983 dismantling of the traditional canonization process -- ironically by Wojtyla -- to turn it into a ruse to claim latter-day Modernists to be "Newsaints," error is undeniably rife! For further information, click on FAQ10: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Beliefs? in the section "Canonizations."
Bishop Williamson, in his August 11, 2013, bulletin, views the impending Newchurch con-anizations of Roncalli and Wojtyla as "a way of 'canonizing' Vatican II." Williamson rightly points out that "as is always the case with Modernism, the words remain the same but the content of the words is quite different. Therefore, Catholics who have the true Faith need not worry one little bit whether these Newcanonizations are infallible or not. They are proceeding from the Newchurch, which is a dummy of the Catholic Church."
Bishop Williamson cites Fatima visionary Sister Lucy's statement about Newchurch being entrapped in a "diabolical disorientation," in which the Newchurch clergy have become agents of lying instead of the Truth. Their "hearts and heads are occupied by more or less of a new religion which is absolutely not Catholic." In these statements Williamson has shown himself to be the true successor of Archbishop Lefebvre, not the phony Superior-Dictator Bernie Fellay.
It is hard to think of a more dramatic subject for a religious movie than the Council of Nicaea, the First Oecumenical Council of the Church, held in A.D. 325. The Council was called by the Roman Emperor Constantine, who in 313 had issued the Edict of Toleration, which allowed the Christians to come out of the catacombs. But no sooner did the Christians come out than they were stricken with a grievous heresy, lead by the priest Arius, and so known to history as the Arian heresy. Consequently, Constantine assembled the bishops of the Church at the city of Nicaea, just southeast of his new capital being built at Constantinople in modern-day Turkey. He wanted the heresy straightened out statim, so that peace and unity could be restored to the Roman Empire.
The Arian heresy, which denied the divinity of Christ and the Trinity, swept like wildfire throughout the Catholic Church, enrolling among its adherents numerous popes and bishops. In fact, the Great Doctor of the Church, St. Jerome, who lived through the period, aptly wrote: Ingemuit orbis terrarum, se Arianum esse miratus est [The world groaned and was amazed that it was Arian]. Historians report that at least two popes and four out of five bishops succumbed to the heresy.
Like the present-day Newchurch, whose Newpopes and Newbishops seem to be suffused with the heresy of Modernism, Catholics suffered greatly during the Arian period. St. Basil the Great poignantly describes in his 243rd Epistle the Arian period as follows:
Only one offense is now vigorously punished, an accurate observance of our fathers' Traditions. For this cause the pious are driven from their countries and transported into the deserts. The people are in lamentation.... Joy and spiritual cheerfulness are no more; our feasts are turned into mourning; our houses of prayer are shut up; our altars are deprived of spiritual worship. No longer are there Christians assembling, teachers presiding, saving instructions, celebrations, hymns by night, or that blessed exultation of souls, which arises from communion and fellowship of spiritual gifts.
The ears of the simple are led astray and have become accustomed to heretical profaneness. The infants of the Church are fed on the words of impiety. For what can they do? Baptisms are in Arian hands; the care of travelers, visitation of the sick, consolation of mourners; succors of the distressed.... Which all, being performed by them, become a bond to the people... so that in a little while, even though liberty be granted us, no hope will remain that they, who are encompassed by so lasting a deceit, should be brought back again to the acknowledgment of the truth.
Sound familiar? St. Basil describes exactly the situation of traditional Catholics today, who must shun the temples of the Newchurch of the New Order. Even though the Arian period was so trying for Catholics, with most of their their popes and bishops sunk into heresy, they at least had to console and fight for them some of the greatest Saints the Church has ever known: Great Doctor St. Basil the Great; Great Doctor St. Athanasius, Defender of the Faith; Great Doctor St. Augustine of Hippo; St. Martin of Tours, and many others. In our day it is different. Only two Newchurch bishops have stood up for the traditional Catholic Faith, the late Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre and the late Bishop Antonio de Castro Mayer.
Now it has been announced that following in the tradition of Mel Gibson's 2004 religious masterpiece, The Passion of Christ, which documented the last hours of the life of Christ, a new religious feature epic entitled Nicaea will be filmed in 2014 at the European Cinecittß Studios in Rome, site of 1959's Ben-Hur and The Passion of the Christ. Enzio Sisti, Executive Producer, and Francisco Frigeri, Production Designer, will reprise the same roles for Nicaea. The clips of original music for Nicaea sound truly epic, in the tradition of Miklˇs Rˇzsa's score for Ben Hur. Nicaea will open with the famous Battle of Milvian Bridge on October 28, 312, fought at the gates of Rome, where Constantine's outnumbered troops, their shields bearing the emblem of Christ revealed to the future Roman Emperor in a dream, predicting In Hoc Signo Vinces, defeat the militarily superior army of Maxentius and pave the way for the consolidation of the entire Roman empire under Constantine's rule and the Edict of Toleration.
In attendance at the Council of Nicaea were more than 300 bishops from around the world with their entourages of priests, deacons, theologians, secretaries, and scribes. Among the bishops were many who had endured persecution for the Faith, and before whom many bowed to kiss their holy wounds. Pope Sylvester I did not himself attend the Council, but he was represented by two legates and later approved of the Council's decisions.

We TRADITIO Fathers can only hope that the producers will not release some watered-down, milquetoast New Order version, but will be truthful to the well-documented history of the period, in which the heroes are the persecuted traditional Catholics and the villains are the popes and bishops. Too bad Mel Gibson isn't producing the new epic. That way we'd be sure to get the historical truth, no matter what Newchurch officials objected!
The Neocon Newchurchers, the pseudo-traditionalists, as well as Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX, are feeling a definite chill from the New Order sect since the accession of Francis-Bergoglio on March 13, 2013. Even the secular and religious press is noting that fact that in less than five months. So the Religious News Service puts it in an August 7, 2013, feature article entitled "Pope Francis Is Unsettling -- and Dividing -- the Catholic Right." Or, as the Latin saying goes, Divide et impera!
The pseudo-traditionalists, like the "whelps" of the Bible, were only too happy to "eat of the crumbs that fall from the table of their masters" (Matthew 15:27/DRV). Benedict-Ratzinger played them for fools with his Great "Motu" Mess Hoax, in which he "allowed" them to use, under certain conditions, the Half New Order Vatican II "Latin Mass" of 1962+ -- but not the Traditional Latin Mass. No, never that!
The pseudo-traditionalists lapped up the erronously-termed "Extraordinary Rite," thinking that the worm had turned. We TRADITIO Fathers warned them since 2007 that it hadn't, that, just as soon as Ratzinger passed on, the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Order service would be brought back with a vengeance. And Bergoglio has done just that with his July 11, 2013, Protocol against the "Motu" Mess. Bergoglio's own Messes are blatant barbaric rites, complete with balloons, drunkenness, and worse, and featuring invalid cookies placed into filty hands out of plastic cups by eucharistic ministers/ministresses dressed in beachwear.
While Ratzinger deceived the pseudo-traditionalists with his Great "Motu" Mess Hoax to keep their money flowing into his corrupted sect, Bergoglio has jettisoned even a conservative veneer and pushed front and center the Modernist Vatican II Council, the invalid New Order Mess, and Modernist/Liberalist social issues. Bergoglio's message is: "How glorious it is that the bad old days are gone and the new good days are here!" Dump the traditionalists. They're Pelagian heretics! (Since Bergoglio flunked theology, he doesn't seem even to realize how ridiculous this statement is.)
Bergoglio doesn't undestand Catholic theology, he can't deliver anything but an off-the-cuff "homily," he can't sing a Mess. He is interested, just like the Newjesuit he is, in "Liberation Theology" based in Marxist Socialism. He doesn't seem concerned with abortion or sodomy of children, even when it is his own presbyers and Newbishops who perpetrate it. "Who am I to judge?" he says. Well, if he doesn't consider himself to be a pope, but only a local bishop, we don't have to consider him a pope either!
The pseudo-traditionalists have been duped, just as we warned years ago that they would be. They forked over their money to support the New Order sect, just as long as they got their little corner in the back of the bus -- the Novus Ordo temple, that is. Now some of them are trying to deny the reality of the unCatholic nature of the New Order sect and Bergoglio by circulating the same disinformation they pulled with the wacko Unblessed JPII-Wojtyla: (1) Bergoglio is "misunderstood"; he is really a traditionalist at heart, but just doesn't seem that way; (2) Bergoglio isn't responsible; it's his aides who are responsible.
Some pseudo-traditionalists are waking up to their error in confusing the Catholic Church of Jesus Christ with the Newpope. They are in fact papolators, having fallen into the idolatrous heresy of worshipping the pope. There is a reason why so few occupants of the papacy show up in the Litany of the Saints. The Church teaches that good popes are the exception rather than the rule. Only two popes in the last 500 years were declared Saints: Pius V and Pius X, both of whom were known for the most traditional theology, morality, and liturgy. St. Pius V canonized the Catholic and Apostolic Traditional Latin Mass for all time. St. Pius X restored fully traditional practice to the Sacred Liturgy and banned operatic "liturgies."
The Institute of Christ the King, an "indult" organization like the Fraternity of St. Peter, using the Half New Order Vatican II Mess of 1962+, was invited to come into the La Crosse, Wisconsin, Newdiocese in 1996 by now-Newcardinal Raymond "Bully" Burke. But after four years it is being kicked out of its site at St. Mary's Ridge, Wisconsin, which is being turned over to Newdiocesan presbyters. This ejection comes on the heels of Francis-Bergoglio's anti "Motu" Mess Protocol of July 11, 2013.
The St. Mary's Ridge site had even earlier been the Institute's North American headquarters. The Institute's canon there will finally be ousted on September 29, 2013. According to the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, he was charged in 1999 with two felony burglary counts, one felony theft count, and one misdemeanor theft count for pilfering valuable religious objects from two churches, as well as one count of obstructing police by lying about his role in the thefts. Yet the Institute placed this priest in charge of its site at St. Mary's Ridge. In 2002, the Institute's Superior was sentenced to 1.5 years in jail, and 20 years probation after pleading guilty to molesting and exposing himself to minors under his care at two churches and to false imprisonment of the children.
Good Catholics, these pseudo-traditionalist "Indult" and "Motu" groups claim to be so traditional, but in fact they dance to the tune of the New Order sect and apparently follow its pig-stye morals. Why the Institute of Christ the King ever allowed these two to continue functioning as priest-presbyters is beyond belief!
The clueless religious press speculated that with the August 3, 2013, reappointment of Newarchbishop Guido Pozzo to be Secretary of the "Ecclesia Dei" Sub-commission, Bergoglio might be reaching out to Fellay's pseudo-traditionalist Neo-SSPXers. Hardly. At the same time Bergoglio was seeing to it that the Novus Ordo cookie was literally handed out to recipients at World Youth Day, July 2013, not only into the youths' filthy hands, but from a plastic cup pawed by "eucharistic ministers" dressed in beachwear!
Guido "the Putz" Pozzo had been fired from his job by Benedict-Ratzinger on November 3, 2012. Francis-Bergoglio hired him back on August 3, 2013, to his old job. The whole situation is reminiscent of that of Hannibal Bugnini, the chief architect of the New Order, who was fired by Pope John XXIII for his Modernism, only to be hired back by the flaming Modernist Newpope Paul VI-Montini.
In the unlikely case that Pozzo reaches out to his fellow putz Bernie Fellay, Superior-Dictator of the pseudo-traditionalist Neo-SSPX, what is Fellay going to do? He tried to sell out the Neo-SSPX to Ratzinger, but was beaten back by his own bishops and priest-presbyters to do a 180 recantation. Is Fellay now going to complete the 360-degree circle and try to sell out again to Francis "the Flake," the most flaming Modernist Newpope yet? What the clueless religious press misses is that the President of the "Ecclesia Dei" Sub-commission remains Newcardinal-Prefect Gerhard Mueller, a well-known anti-traditionalist. Moreover, Pozzo, as Secretary 2009-2012, was also a member of the negotiating team that failed on the part of Newchurch to conclude the 2009-2011 attempted NSSPX sellout.
In a June 23, 2013, interview with Nouvelles de France, Pozzo showed himself a loyal supporter of the New Order sect's "Ordinary Rite," that is, the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Order Service, calling it "legitimate" rather than invalid. He said that "it is necessary, as a duty" to recognize both forms, "Ordinary" and the erroneous-termed "Extraordinary." Then Pozzo delivered the clincher that shows he is no friend of traditionalists:
The forma extraordinaria [the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II 1962+"Motu" Mess] must not in any way support or belong to groups that show themselves to be against the validity or legitimacy of the Holy Mass or the Sacraments celebrated in the forma ordinaria [the full-blown Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Order Service of 1969].
Good Catholics, Pozzo is a flaming Modernist with a veneer, and a very thin one at that, of pseudo-traditionalism. For Pozzo, the Modernist Vatican II Council is not open to discussion. To him it is "in line with Tradition." Yes, Guido, and to you, black is white, and white is black. But traditional Catholics will not fall for this deception yet again!
TRADITIO readers will remember Raymond "Bully" Burke. He was Newbishop of La Crosse, Wisconsin, where he became part of the cover-up of his presbyters' sex crimes against children in his Newdiocese. Burke, instead of being the childrens' protector as their Newbishop, instead refused to report the vile crimes to local police. That and the fact that Burke "consecrated" a "transgenered" man as a nun -- an act that scandalized even the corrupt Newvatican -- earned Burke a promotion to get him away from the locals who were now hot on his trail.
So, in 2004, Burke was transferred to become Newarchbishop of St. Louis, Missouri -- a clear case of promoveatur ut removeatur. There, Burke took on a traditional-leaning parish church that had an independent archiepiscopal charter for some 150 years. Burke's purpose was to steal the church, worth some 12,000,000 dollars to pay off for numerous child victims' lawsuits against him. Burke tried every tyrannical tactic that he could think of, including Novus Ordo "excommunication" of the pastor and congregation's leaders. To their credit, the traditional-leaning congregation and its courageous pastor stood firm. After several years their perseverance paid off, as the local court backed the congregation and its 150-year-old charter. In the meantime, "Bully" Burke had alienated many in his own Newarchdiocese and in the local religious community.
Benedict-Ratzinger and his Newchurch were mightily embarrassed over the matter, especially since Burke hypocritically claimed to be "traditionalist" at the same time he was donning Novus Ordo vestments. So, Ratzinger spirited him off to Newvatican where he could be closely watched -- promoveatur ut removeatur again. Ratzinger gave him a sinecure at the Apostolic Signatura right under Ratzinger's nose.
Now Burke wants to remain in good with the new administration of Francis-Bergoglio, so he does what all good Newchurch prelates do: tell whoppers. At the recent Sacra Ligurgia Conference, Burke laughingly claimed that there is "perfect continuity" between Ratzinger and Bergoglio. Truly, in Newchurch black is white, and white is black. Burke epitomizes the mendacious sellout that all Newprelates make to keep their fancy positions and extravagant salaries. You can be sure that Burke wants Bergoglio to keep him in his sinecure.
On July 25, 2013, Burke let the cat out of the bag, however, when he said that "liturgical abuse" is "strictly correlated" to "moral corruption." Thanks, Your Hypocriticalness, for admitting what traditional Catholics have been saying ever since Vatican II! And we have been right on the money, as your Newchurch has sunk deeper and deeper into moral depravity. You can't get any lower than sodomizing children, Biblically one of the Four Sins that Cry out to Heaven for Retribution.
Then Burke revealed the real reason why Ratzinger perpetrated his "Motu" Mess Hoax. The reason was not that Ratzinger loved the Half New Order Vatican II Mess of 1962+, erroneously termed the "Extraordinary Mess." The reason was that Ratzinger wanted to perpetrate a theological hoax on Newchurch, which was, and is, losing membership like a sieve. Ratzinger needed the collection monies from both Novus Ordo liberalists and Neocon pseudo-traditionalists to sustain his dying Newchurch.
So, Ratzinger tried to claim the ridiculous: that the Modernist Vatican II Council was not a "rupture" from Catholicism (as it clearly was), but was a "continuity" with it (which it clearly wasn't). Thus, Ratzinger tried to claim that the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan vulgar-tongued New Mess is the "same rite" as the Traditional Latin Mass of two millennia. Even Protestants and Masons, who have eyes, after all, didn't buy that one! Well, Ratzinger wasn't alone in his hoax. Fellay tried to pull the same one on his Neo-SSPXers, telling them that the abominable and invalid New Order service is valid. Anyone with eyes can see that Fellay is entirely false.
In Francis-Bergoglio we have yet another "all talk and no action" Newpope. In the most serious problem facing the Newchurch of the New Order, the endemic paedophilia among Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters, the incompetent First Paedophile Newpope, the Unblessed JPII-Wojtyla, and the incompetent Second Paedophile Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger, have set the model for the incompetent Third Paedophile Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio. With each Newpope, the response, such as it is, becomes worse. Ratzinger at least give lip-service to an apology to the child victims, though it was not sincere. Bergoglio has now gone further, saying on July 28, 2013, that paedophile criminals among Newchurch clergy should be not just forgiven, but "forgotten." Strike one.
In the second most serious problem facing the Newchurch of the New Order, the Vatican Bank being turned into a money-laudering operation for the benefit of Newchurch prelates and the Mafia, Ratzinger failed miserably in correcting the problems. Finally, the Bank of Italy, frustrated with Ratzinger's failure, refused to process bank-card transactions at Vatican ATM machines. Bergoglio is similarly incompetent. Bergoglio told the international press on July 28, 2013, that he has turned over the bank to "trusted" advisors, Monsignori of his Newchurch. One of Bergoglio's advisors, Monsignore Nunzio Scarano, has now been arrested for financial fraud. Another, Monsignore Battista Ricca, has been outed by the leading Italian periodical, La Repubblica, as a paedophile, regularly frequenting underage boy prostitutes. Strike two.
Now it is reported that Bergoglio's reform of the Newroman Curia, mandated by the College of Newcardinals, has turned out to be too difficult for him. He has been telling friends how difficult it is proving, at the same time being told to get a move-on by leading Newcardinals. He tried to foist the problem off onto a Privy Council of eight Newcardinals, but they won't even have their first meeting until October 2013. The College of Newcardinals is grumbling about Bergoglio's slowness to deal with the dictatorial Tarcisio Bertone, Ratzinger's Secretary of State, and Gerhard Muller, Ratzinger's Prefect of Doctrine, both of whom have angered the Newcardinals. Strike three. Bergoglio's out! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Voice of Bombay.]
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Since returning to traditional Catholicism over the past 15 years, I am trying to understand differences between the true Mass and the New Order non-Mass. After the Gospel in the Traditional Latin Mass, the priest at our site leads the congregation in prayer for several intentions: benefactors, friends, deceased, etc., usually with a Pater, Ave, and Requiem aeternam. How do these prayers differ from the ones that the New Order Mess recites (albeit goofy) after the the Novus Ordo replacement for the sermon, the "homily"?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Typically, on Sundays and Holydays, the Mass stops after the priest reads or chants the Gospel in Latin at the altar, for the purpose of delivering a sermon to instruct the people. The priest for this purpose physically leaves the sanctuary, takes off his maniple (and perhaps chasuble), which are the Mass vestments, to deliver the sermon, usually in the vernacular.
This interruption is permitted only because the sermon, together with any vernacular prayers that may perhaps be added by the priest by convention, are not part of the Mass and not conducted in the sanctuary, where traditionally everything must be in Latin. The New Order added non-voluntary Protestantized prayers as part of the New Order service itself, just before (usually) laypeople bring up the cookies and grape juice that are to be non-consecrated. That is an entirely different matter!
You enter the Novus Ordo worship building, which looks much like a Masonic lodge hall, for the Saturday afternoon Mess. People are talking, laughing, chewing gum. Most are casually dressed. The tabernacle is nowhere in sight, so instead of genuflecting, people bow toward the altar "table." The crucifix is absent; it won't be brought in until the entrance procession.
The cantoress approaches the microphone, bare-headed and wearing a coulotte. "Good afternoon," she beams. "Welcome to the Eucharist of the Fifteenth Sunday in Ordinary Time. Please stand to greet our celebrant, Father Billy Bob, as we sing our opening song, On Eagles' Wings. A small band of piano, guitar, and drums accompanies the opening song. The procession enters from the back of the temple: a female crucifer, two altar girls, a lectoress in street clothes carrying the Novus Ordo lectionary aloft, and finally Fr. Billy Bob in a Novus Ordo alb-cum-chasuble, all smiling and singing along loudly.
The Asperges ceremony before Mass is omitted, as the thought of washing away sins is deprecated. The congregation remains standing as Fr. Billy Bob recites the Protestantized "Opening Prayers," while the band launches into the Lord Have Mercy Kyrie and Glory to God from the newly-composed Mess of the New Order written in jazz style. Fr. Billy Bob then sits down for the "Liturgy of the Word," imported substantially from the Anglican prayer book and read entirely in the vulgar tongue (or tongues) from the lectern. The band performs its rendition of Taste and See following the "First Reading." After the "Second Reading," the cantoress renders the Oecumenical Alleluia.
After the Gospel is read in a vulgar tongue by a married lay deacon, Fr. Billy Bob gives a brief "homily" on social justice and global warming. "It is a mortal sin not to use florescent bulbs," he warns the congregation. After the We Believe is recited by the congregation, two Lesbians bring forward the "bread," looking for all the world like shortbread cookies, and the grape juice for the "consecration." Meanwhile the lectoress leads the congregation in the Protestant Bidding Prayers, praying for all politically-correct groups and causes.
After the "Presto" Eucharistic Prayer, so called because it is over before you know it, with its revised "consecration" to conform to the heresy of universal salvation, the congregation launches into one of the familiar acclamation songs imported from Protestant services. Shortly after, the congregation recites the Lord's Prayer in the vulgar tongue, with the de rigeur Protestant ending, hands joined across the pews.
When communion-time arrives, all of the congregation, confessed or not, fasting or not, including known public sinners with divorced-and-remarried (or perhaps annulled in a Newchurch "quickie" divorce), approach, many taking "communion" in the hand from the eucharistic ministresses while Fr. Billy Bob sits in his giant Protestant "presider's" chair. Some also receive the grape juice from a ceramic goblet crudely fabricated by schoolchildren. A few folks try to kneel, but they interrupt the flow of the line and thus receive a hostile glare from the ministresses. When they return to their seats, most of the congregation sits without making any thanksgiving.
When Fr. Billy Bob proclaims, "The Eucharist is finished. Thank God," the band strikes up a rousing rendition of When the Saints Come Marching In, including the Unsaint JPII-Wotyla. As soon as Fr. Billy Bob leaves the altar, the congregation practically trips over him on the way out, eager to get in those few extra holes of golf before nightfall!
Good Catholics, Bernie Fellay and the pseudo-traditionalist crowd should be ashamed of themselves for entertaining, under any circumstances, the notion that this abomination, so typical in Novus Ordo temples of Newchurch, could ever be valid. (We won't even get into the matter that the presbyters who "do" these services are not even "ordained to offer the Sacrifice of the Mass for the living and the dead," but merely "installed to preside over the assembly of the people.") Fellay and the Pseudo-traditionalists should, as the Scriptural phrase is, unapologetically vomit it out of their mouths!
With Francis-Bergoglio waffling on homosexual sodomy and paedophilia ("Who I am I to judge?, he said to the international press on July 29, 2013), the imposition of the "gay" immorality across the West (the Mid East and East still condemn it) is picking up speed like a juggernaut.
In Great Britain, a "gay couple" is suing to force the Church of England to "marry" them. A Government Bill sponsored by "conservative" Prime Minister David Cameron to legalize "gay marriage" passed in the British Parliament on July 17, 2013, but it included measures to protect churches from being forced to perform gay weddings. One gay couple wants to "get married in a church" and doesn't like the idea that churches can "opt out" of performing gay weddings.
One of the egotistical sodomites told the press the motivation behnd his suit: "I'm not getting what I want." What he wants is a perverse "big lavish ceremony" at some church. Make no mistake: this is not about "marriage"; this is about politics. In 2012 the Church of England warned that the Government's plans to redefine marriage could trigger legal problems and end the 500-year link between church and state, but "conservative" Cameron went ahead anyway.
In the United States, California was forced by the federal government on June 26, 2013, to accept "gay" marriage in spite of three votes of its citizens against this abomination. Subsequently, a "gay" teacher at a Newchurch high school in Southern California lost his job after his "wedding" pictures were published in a local newspaper on the occasion of his "marrying" his "partner." The sodomite is trying to gin up an "online petition" to get his job back. Many clueless Newchurchers have signed it.
Good Catholics, these are the consequences of what Our Lord Jesus Christ called an "unbelieving and perverse generation." The Newchurchers, who have sold out to the gross immoralities of the New Order perversion, have deservedly gotten a paedophiliac, homophile Francis-Bergoglio to lead them all the more quickly to perdition.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
After I looked at all the disgusting photographs in the TRADITIO Network's Novus Ordo Service Photo Gallery department, I was confronted with just how invalid this "Ordinary Mess" of Newchurch is. Why do the Newchurchers put up with this unCatholic nonsense? Why are they not more zealous for the Catholic Faith?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
The problem starts with the fact that the New Order sect is false, not Catholic, and not even based on the teachings of Our Lord Jesus Christ. That sect smacks more of the pusillanimity that Christ Himself condemned in Sacred Scripture. The Apostles, the Fathers of the Church, and the Holy Saints tell us that we should hate heresy, and they themselves spoke and acted against it harshly. For example, St. Basil the Great censoriously wrote [Epistlula 72] of a heresy similar to the heresy of Modernism, condemned explicity by popes of the 19th and 20th centuries, which has been rampant for the last fifty years in the Newchurch of the New Order:
This evil of heresy spreads itself. The doctrines of godliness are overturned; the rules of the Church are in confusion; the ambition of the unprincipled seizes upon places of authority; and the chief seat [the papacy] is now openly proposed as a reward for impiety; so that he whose blasphemies are the more shocking is more eligible for the oversight of the people. Priestly gravity has perished; there are none left to feed the Lord's flock with knowledge; ambitious men are ever spending, in purposes of self-indulgence and bribery, possessions that they hold in trust for the poor. The accurate observation of the canons are no more; there is no restraint upon sin.
Unbelievers laugh at what they see, and the weak are unsettled; faith is doubtful; ignorance is poured over their souls, because the adulterators of the word in wickedness imitate the truth. Religious people keep silence, but every blaspheming tongue is let loose. Sacred things are profaned; those of the laity who are sound in faith avoid the places of worship, as schools of impiety, and raise their hands in solitude with groans and tears to the Lord in Heaven.
Even many traditional Catholics of the present time seem to have the disease of pusillanimity, or lack of zeal. St. John reports the words of the Lord on the vice of lack of zeal, known as sloth: "I know thy works that thou art neither cold nor hot. I would thou were cold or hot... Such as I love, I rebuke and chastise. Be zealous therefore (Apocalypse 3/15-16/DRV). Thus, Christ teaches that love means chastisement for sloth in the faith, one of the Seven Deadly Sins.
Even though St. Basil wrote his words in the fourth century, he could not have written truer words of our own times! To use the words of the Great Saint, we should laugh at the unbelief, doubtful faith, and ignorance that is graphically presented by the photographs. Catholic teaching that the New Order service cannot be valid comes from the Popes and Catholic Sacramental theology. This is explained in the sections "The Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Nature of the New Order Service" and "The Invalidity of the Novus Ordo Service by Papal Declaration," which precede the photographs.
Upon his return to Rome on July 29, 2013, after his junket to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to service the "Woodstock" rave there known as World Youth Day, Francis-Bergoglio went straight to profane the high altar of Our Lady's Archbasilica in Rome. Bergoglio desecrated this high altar, the most revered altar of Mary in the world, by placing right beside its tabernacle a beach ball and a sports jersey, apparently to commemorate his Rio rave.
The Catholic religion places severe restrictions about what may be placed on true altars, which represent Christ the Lord. Aside from what is strictly associated with the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass (sacred linens, sacred metalware, the Missal, etc.), nothing is to placed on the table of the altar. Even objects like flowers are merely tolerated, and then on restricted days. It is condemned by the Catholic religion that the altar of Christ be made a trash-bin for leftover souvenirs! Bergoglio didn't even have the Catholicity to bring back religious souvenirs, just profane ones.
Each day we are confronted with more and more eveidence that Bergoglio is even worse than the Unblessed JPII-Wojtyla, who scandalized the Catholic world with his pagan-like buffoonery. Traditional Catholics will vividly recall a similar incident in 1986 during JPII-Wojtyla's First Assisi Conference, when the Buddha was scandalously placed above the tabernacle. Bergoglio is giving every evidence of being just a presumptious buffoon in a hypocritical white outfit.
In its July 29, 2013, issue, the Italian periodical Chiesa has publicly agreed with the TRADITIO Network (TN)'s prediction in 2007 that Benedict-Ratzinger's "Motu" Mess was a hoax, not intended to last. What other conclusion can now be reached, given Francis-Bergoglio's July 11, 2013, Protocol essentially suppressing the "Motu" Mess worldwide among the Newchurch Franciscan Order?
The Protocol is expected to be extended to the Newchurch of the New Order worldwide in due course. Ratzinger's purpose in 2007 was to delude Neocon Newchurchers and pseudo-traditionalists back into his unCatholic New Order sect, which has been losing membership and money hand over fist, mostly because of bad publicity over Ratzinger's complicity in the paedophiliac crimes of his presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals.
Ratzinger's hoax didn't work. A statistical survey conducted in 2012 showed that after a slight uptick in "Motu" (formerly called "Indult") Messes, the number of such Messes actually declined. The "Motu" Mess, aka the "Extraordinary" Mess, aka the Mess of 1962+, is not the Traditional Latin Mass. Most traditional Catholics figured that fact out and would have nothing to do with "Latin Messes" performed by unordained Novus Ordo presbyters in Novus Ordo temples.
It has taken only six years, almost to the day, but now looks as if the "Motu" Mess, having now been suppressed by Francis-Bergoglio in the Newfranciscan Order, will shortly be suppressed entirely in Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch. The clueless pseudo-traditionalists have finally come to realize the truth of what the TRADITIO Network has been documenting in detail since 2007 in these Daily Commentaries:
One point on which Jorge Mario Bergoglio was eagerly expectedáto weigh in, after his election as pope, was that of the Mass in the ancient rite. There were those who predicted that Pope Francis would not distance himself from the stance of his predecessor, who had liberalized the celebration of the Mass in the ancient rite as an "extraordinary" form of the modern rite, with the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum, of July 7, 2007, and with the subsequent instruction Universae Ecclesiae, of May 13, 2011.
And there were instead those who prognosticated on the part of Francis a restriction -- or even a cancellation -- of the possibility of celebrating the Mass with the rite prior to Vatican Council II, even at the cost of contradicting the decisions of Benedict XVI, with him still alive. To read the decree issued by the Vatican Congregation for Religious shortly before the voyage of Francis in Brazil, with the explicit approval of the pope himself, one must agree more with the latter than with the former.
One pseudo-traditionalist "blogger," really a New Order sectarian who identifies himself by the last letter of the alphabet, is already using the typical Newchurch tactics of deceit by warning Neocon Newchurchers and Motarians to shut up. "If you gripe about Vatican II right now, in this present environment, you could lose what you have attained." Sure! Newchurchers should shut up while heresy, immmorality, and invalid Protestant "liturgies" run wild in Newchurch. And what have you pseudo-traditionalist Newchurchers "attained"? Only invalid Half New Order Vatican II Messes of 1962+ "performed" by New Order presbyters, who have never been validly "ordained to offer the Sacrifice of the Mass for the living and the dead" in valid Holy Orders, but merely "installed to preside over the assembly of the people" under the invalid New Ordinal of 1968.
Just as we TRADITIO Fathers predicted, when Benedict-Ratzinger's successor was elected, his "Motu" Mess Hoax would die. We TRADITIO Fathers must say, however, that the swiftness of its demise exceeded even our expectations. Pity all those Newchurch Neocons and pseudo-traditionalists who refused to listen to our warnings and put their eggs into Benedict-Ratzinger's Half New Order Vatican II "Motu" Mess of 196-1007, which was engineered by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini to begin the destruction of the traditional Catholic Mass, Divine Office, and Sacraments of 2,000 years.
By a decree of July 11, 2013, approved personally by Francis-Bergoglio, the Prefect of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life, Newcardinal Joao Braz de Aviz, rescinded de facto the terms of Benedict-Ratzinger's 2007 Motu Proprio Summorum pontificum, which permitted, under some circumstances, the Mess of 1962+. De Aviz has, with the approval of Francis-Bergoglio in forma specifica, that is, by the Newpope specifically, and thus without being subject to appeal, decreed that as of August 11, 2013, the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate, the largest organization of religious performing the "Motu" Mess, must stop doing so.
The Friars have been responsible for "staging" many of the pontifical "Motu" Messes in Rome. It is now expected that by the decree of the Newcardinal-Prefect, these Messes too will likely cease altogether. Part of the rationale for the new decree was the complaints to Bergoglio about the "excessive propensity" to celebrate the "Motu" Mess, "with the effect of creating exclusion and opposition within the communities, of undermining internal unity, and, worse, of weakening the more general sentire cum Ecclesia," that is, going along with the New Order.
Bergoglio listened to these complaints against the "Motu" Mess and has, just four months after his election, responded with a de facto rejection of Ratzinger's "Motu" Mess. The decree provides that all Newchurch Franciscans must use the (invalid) New Order Mess of 1969. On a rare occasion, the "Motu" Mess might be performed, but only with the explicit authorization of the Newbishop Ordinary. This provision for explicit authorization by the Newbishop explicity rescinds the provision of Ratzinger's Motu Proprio. The recission is expected to be applied shortly across the entire Newchurch.
Curiously, on his recent junket to Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to service the "Woodstock" rave there known as World Youth Day, Bergoglio took the opportunity again in a public and official address to the Brazilian Bishops Conference to attack (pseudo-)traditionalists, referring to them as "Neo-Pelagians." This comment once again confirms Bergoglio's ignorance of Catholic theology, as the Pelagians denied God's grace -- something that traditional Catholics never do!
Benedict-Ratzinger's great "Motu" hoax was based on the fallacy that the valid and true Traditional Latin Mass of two millennia could exist in the Newchurch of the New Order together with, though subordinate to, the invalid and false New Order Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service. It took only six years for that demented fantasy to be smashed to smithereens! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by La Repubblica.]
Let's face the truth. Ratzinger's "Motu" Mess hoax was a desperate attempt to cobble together some kind of phony "Latin Mass" to bring Neocon Newchurchers and pseudo-traditionists back into his dying New Order sect. Ratzinger needed bodies and money to maintain Newchurch power, and this was a ploy to get himself just that -- a ploy that has rightfully failed as the hoax it was. The death of Ratzinger's "Motu" Mess of 1962+ is not to be mourned, because the "Motu" Mess is not the Traditional Latin Mess, nor is it even valid, since it is "performed" by Novus Ordo presbyters, who, since 1969, are merely invalidly installed "to preside over the assembly of the people," not validly ordained in Holy Orders "to offer the Sacrifice of the Mass for the living and the dead."
Already the death of the "Motu" Mess is being felt around the world. A TRADITIO reader from the United States writes us: "With Bergoglio's election, Newchurch bishops will be moving against the 'Motu'/'Extraordinary' Non-traditional Latin Mess everywhere. Here, a 'Motu' presbyter was moved to a distant corner of the New Order diocese one month, and (surprise!) the next month it was announced that all 'Motu' Messes would cease."
Good Catholics, you who shunned Benedict-Ratzinger's "Motu" Mess, aka (errneously) the "Extraordinary Mess" or the "Latin Mass" (but most definitely not the Traditional Latin Mass); you who rejected that Half Novus Ordo Vatican II Mess concocted by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini and invalidly celebrated by unordained presbyters; you who rejected such Novus Ordo-affiliated pseudo-traditional groups like the Fraternity of St. Peter and the Institute of Christ the King; you who remained faithful to the Traditional Latin Mass -- you have now all been vindicated. You who were taken in by Ratzinger's Hoax, there is still time to recover your sanity and get back to the valid, fully Traditional Latin Mass.
