Francis-Bergoglio continues to astonish true Catholics with his perverted doctrine and behavior. Having said that he cannot judge homosexuals, now he is consorting with transsexuals. On January 26, 2015, he received in a private audience, which many Newchurchers would give their eye tooth for, a transsexual from Spain and his "girlfriend" after the man wrote to him that his Newchurch parish had expelled him for public indecency.
Diego Neria Lejarraga had her vagina sewn up, and a false male member surgically attached to her/his God-given body, which St. Paul called "the temple of the Holy Ghost" (1 Corinthians 6:19-20/DRV). Bergoglio is again completely unmoored from Catholic morality and has totally capsized the barque of Peter. Newvatican was so embarrassed at Bergoglio's rampant immorality that even his spokesman, Federico Lombardy, remained speechless in the face of mounting criticism against the anti-Catholic Newpope. Even a majority of Bergoglio's own College of Newcardinals has voted against his aberrations in Synod. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Spanish daily Hoy.]
True Catholics, could Francis-Bergoglio be any more perverted? Suborning homosexuality, artificial contraception, divorce/remarriage, and now "transsexuality"? Truly, he has publicly brought himself under the ultimate censure of the New Testament: "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).
Francis-Bergoglio is damned if he does, damned if he doesn't. The Romans thought that it was a bad omen for Bergoglio's regime when so many of his Newchurch doves, released during his Newvatican balcony appearances, were attacked and killed by other birds, particularly black crows. So, on January 25, 2015, Bergoglio decided to can the doves and substitute balloons. In doing so, he has run "afowl" of his radical environmentalist pals, who hate helium-filled balloons. At least crows eating doves is natural, but balloons are a no-no because they fly up and pollute space.
In 2014 Newpope's "feel-good" practice became a public-relations disaster. After the children with Bergoglio tossed a pair of doves from the window, first a seagull and then a crow swept down and attacked the doves before the horrified Newchurchers and tourists gathered in the Piazza di San Pietro, some of whom viewed it as a traditional bad omen for Bergoglio's regime. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio has stepped over his own feet so many times in his efforts to be "Mr. Popularity" instead of the Catholic pope that he is making himself a world-wide laughing-stock. His constant anti-Catholic remarks are losing him even his conservative Newchurchers, and now his liberalist Newchurchers. More and more the questions is being seriously asked: Is the pope Catholic? And the answer that more and more are giving to the perennial question is a resounding Not on your life!
Francis-Bergoglio has declared that no Newchurcher is to attempt to convert Protestant heretics to Newchurch. With his declaration Bergoglio has, in essence, proclaimed in the clearest terms yet that he is not a Christian, as his statement openly rejected Sacred Scripture (the Bible) and Sacred Tradition. Bergoglio purports to be the "Vicar of Christ," yet Christ Himself said: "Going therefore, teach ye all nations; baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Ghost" (Matthew 28:19/DRV). Since when does a "pope" have the power to overrule God? It seems that "Mr. Humble" is actually "Mr. Prideful." And we all know that "pride goeth before the destruction" (Proverbs 16:18/DRV).
On January 25, 2015, Bergoglio declared that Newchurchers must accept and dialogue with Protestant heretics. In essence, Bergoglio was kicking the crutch out from under the Protestant heretics, for whom conversion -- not to Bergoglio's false New Order sect, of course, but to the true Catholic Faith -- could be their only saving grace to avoid Hell. Bergoglio claimed, against the Bible, that heretics "can make us grow." He also condemned discussing Catholicism with Protestant heretics in discussions "in which each side tries to convince the other."
We can just see St. Augustine, St. Thomas Aquinas, and 2,000 years of Catholic Saints vomiting Bergoglio out of their mouths (Apocalypse 3:16/DRV), to use the Bible's description. Bergoglio also blasphemously referred to heretics in the Middle East as suffering an "oecumenism of blood," much like Catholic martyrs. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
True Catholics, has Francis-Bergoglio lost his mind? He certainly seems to have lost any semblance of the Catholic Faith. Every time he opens his mouth now, he eructates some anti-Catholic false "teaching." Where is a good vaudeville hook when you need one? Yank this guy off the stage pronto!
The international press reports that Newchurch Neocons' distrust of Pope Francis, which has been building throughout his regime, is reaching a boiling point over his plan to urge action on alleged "global warming" and to pervert the vehicle of the Encyclical Letter to become a screed for this secular issue. The divisive "letter" is expected to be released in June or July 2015 and is being kept secret because of the anticipated outrage that will be expressed by conservative Newchurchers, who are the backbone of Newchurch attendance and donations.
Bergoglio, who is reputed to be ignorant of science, is expected to defy substantial scientific evidence and to claim that "global warming" exists and is "man made." He wants the secularist United Nations to take charge of national economies to regulate warming. All the while glaciers in the Northern Atlantic are increasing, and the ice flow at Antarctica is growing. Even now some are warning that Bergoglio is about to create a scandal much bigger that whatever was done in the controverted case of Galileo.
Leading Newchurch Neocons have been pre-emptively attacking Francis-Bergoglio and his concocted "science." Investor's Business Daily, Forbes, and TownHall have openly accused Bergoglio of "radicalism" in his secular environmental agenda. "Francis -- and I say this as a Catholic [sic] -- is a complete disaster when it comes to his public policy pronouncements," wrote the chief economist of The Heritage Foundation. "On the economy, and even more so on the environment, the [New]pope has allied himself with the far left and has embraced an ideology that would make people poorer and less free." A leading Neocon magazine has likewise accused Bergoglio of "promoting theologized propaganda."
But the Newchurch Neocons are only being hoisted by their own petard. They have been bad-mouthing true (traditional) Catholics for standing up for the Catholic Faith against the anti-Catholic Bergoglio. Now it is the Neocons who are being gored by Bergoglio. The Neocons, befuddled for so long by the false Newchurch, are now beginning to realize that Newchurch and its Newpopes are anti-Catholic: for radical environmentalism, for radical one-world government, for immoral homosexuality, for reducing opposition to abortion, against large families, against free speech and democracy. Neocons are now, after just two years of the Bergoglio regime, openly calling the Newpope's prattle to be "pure Marxism" and a "hoax." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by ABC News.]
True Catholics, on issue after issue, Francis-Bergoglio has had to do damage control and to spin his Marxist statements back. But it is too late for him. It is becoming all too clear to the world that Bergoglio's heart and soul lies with Karl Marx, not with Jesus Christ.
The Italian press is reporting that Francis-Bergoglio is rapidly losing control of his Newchurch in Italy. A Newchurch "nun" gave birth on January 23, 2015, in Italy, a year after a similar case. She was taken to the Bartolomeo Eustachio Hospital in San Severino Marche, central Italy, after complaining of severe "stomach pains." It turned out that the "nun" had violated her solemn vows and deceitfully thought to claim that her child was a stomach ache! The "nun" was given an ultrasound, which revealed the truth, and within a few hours the sorry result of her broken vows emanated.
The Newchurch "nun," Roxana Rodriguez, who a year ago, also complaining of "stomach pains," gave birth to a child in Italy, named the bastard of her broken vows after the Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio. The "nun" has not revealed the name of the father involved. Newchurch rushed the "nun" off into seclusion, apparently afraid of speculation that the baby's father might be the man whose name she gave to her bastard baby. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Il Gazzetino.]
True Catholics, just as Newchurch has not had a priesthood since the invalid New Ordinal of 1968, its so-called "religious orders" are more and more being exposed as a sham, a despicable money-laundering operation to take donations acquired by fraud and to apply them to anti-Catholic organizations that have used them to destroy the Catholic Church.
The official statistics for Newchurch in England and Wales are in, and they are not pretty. The Faith Survey released on June 26, 2013, shows clearly that the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965) has dropped like an atom bomb on Newchurch in Great Britain. Attendance at the invalid New Order Mess has plummeted from a peak of 2,114,219 at the time of Vatican II to 885,169 in 2010, a loss of 60 per cent.
The collapse of Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order in England & Wales has been so precipitous that the Newchurch bishops have ordered that statistics be dropped from their Catholic [Sic] Directory, published every year since 1838. In fact, the entire directory, which has been the principal source of statistics for Newchurch in England & Wales, has been suppressed in favor of a web site, which will give none of the shocking statistics, as installations (formerly the Sacrament of Holy Orders), initiations (formerly Holy Baptism), attendance at Mess (formerly the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass), and marriage (formerly the Sacrament of Matrimony) have all collapsed.
In England, where true Catholics once took up arms against Henry VIII to preserve the Traditional Latin Mass against that king's Protestantized service, the Newchurch of the New Order has voluntarily Protestantized itself. Cooperating in the apostasy are the pseudo-traditionalists, conservative Neocons, and Motarians of the "Extraordinary" Mess (such as the Protestantized "Latin Mess Society"), who have sold out to Newchurch's anti-Catholic Mess, doctrine, and morals.
True Catholics, the courageous ancestors of the British Newchurchers, including the Newchurch Neocon sycophants, would now spit at their countrymen in vehement condemnation of their apostasy from the true Faith. St. Thomas More, British Martyr for the Catholic Faith, would spit on them. St. John Fisher, British Martyr for the Catholic Faith, would spit on them. These Saints stood for the Traditional Latin Mass against the Protestant King Henry VIII, who would deprive them of their traditional Catholic Faith. Their Newchurcher successors have willingly sold out to the Devil.
St. Ignatius Church in Preston, England, 360 kilometres northwest of London, survived the Protestant Revolution in the 16th century, but in the early 21st century the moribund Newchurch of the New Order is taking St. Ignatius down in its wake in a city once described as the most Catholic place in England. "In another 20 years there will be no one going to church here anymore," said one Newchurcher in response to the Newbishop of Lancaster, Michael Campbell's closure of the church before Christmas. That Newbishop has declared historic St. Ignatius Church "surplus" waste.
The alarming decline of the church has come despite a wave of immigrants from Poland and other Eastern European countries. When the Polish population was moved by the Newbishop to a church on the outskirts of town, a third of the Poles abandoned it overnight. The Newchurchers called the Newbishop's action "sabotage." "After what's happened to us, is it any wonder people decide not to bother?," said one Newchurcher.
Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch is undeniably in crisis. Very few people are going to the invalid New Order Mess. No men are going to the unCatholic Newchurch seminaries, which no longer ordain Catholic priests, but merely "install" Protestantized presbyter/ministers [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Lancaster Evening Post.]
True Catholics, Newchurch is dying around the world. The only time the mobs will turn out is when a Newpope with a rock-star complex creates a flash crowd, as in January 2015 for the Philippines. Then the mob will sacrilegiously steal the phony "bread" that is no longer the Holy Eucharist to put into their prayer books as a momento -- or feed to their dogs after the "rave" is over. Newchurch is clearly going to the dogs, whatever the fatuous propagandists try to put over on you. Within a decade or two, Newchurch will be as dead as the Protestant Anglican Church, which, now with its Lesbian priestesses and bishopesses, is lucky to count even ten in the pews at its phony services.
It seems that Newpope Francis-Bergoglio is out of control again. But now Mr. Narcissist is getting pushback. On January 18, 2015, Bergoglio was taken to task publicly by no less than the British Prime Minister, David Cameron, for suborning the "poisonous death cult narrative" of Mohammedan terrorists. Cameron criticized Bergoglio's statement that when one criticizes someone else's religion, he should expect violence. Bergoglio made this statement specifically in the context of the mass murders by Mohammedan terrorists of 17 innocent Parisians on January 7, 2015, and seemed to be exculpating the terrorists' mass murders because they were incensed by a satirical treatment of Mohammed by the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo.
Prime Minister Cameron publicly rejected Bergoglio's excuse for the terrorism against innocent people by telling the Newpope to man up and reject the Mohammedan extremists' "poisonous death cult narrative" and to defend the human right of free speech, which was defended even by the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965) worshipped by Bergoglio. "In a free society there is a right to cause offense about someone's religion. I'm a Christian. If someone says something offensive about Jesus, I might find that offensive, but in a free society I don't have a right to wreak my vengeance upon them. We have to accept that newspapers, magazines can publish things that are offensive to some as long as it's within the law," Cameron said.
To the contrary, Bergoglio wimped out in oecumenical madness toward the destructive Mohammedans. Charlie Hebdo's editor in chief also deplored Bergoglio's statement suborning terrorism. Gerard Biard said simply: "Religion should not be a political argument." This statement is direct censure of Berogoglio's intrusion into politics, while his false New Order sect continues into ruin. Because of Prime Minister Cameron's criticism, Francis-Bergoglio tried to do damage control, in bureaucratic language called a "clarification." We had the usual excuses from Bergoglio: "I was misunderstood," "I didn't mean it," etc., etc. But Bergoglio obviously learned nothing from his inane rattling off at the mouth.
On the same day, January 18, 2015, Francis-Bergoglio horrified true Catholics when, speaking to journalists on his flight back from his junket to the Philippines, when he attacked parents of several children as "breeding like rabbits." Bergoglio is also known for his anti-Catholic statement in 2013, just six months after becoming Newpope, when he deplored his Newchurch's "obsession with contraception, divorce, gays and abortion." Again, Bergoglio tried to roll back his inane anti-Catholic comments, but it was too late. He was lambasted from all sides for his inane comments. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Agence France-Presse.]
True Catholics, it is now clear as crystal that, with almost two years of his regime behind him, Bergoglio has clearly exposed himself as anti-Catholic with a Marxist agenda. Moreover, he is a Narcissistic incompetent, and ignorant anti-Catholic, who should keep his mouth closed in future. He should be rejected outright by all true Catholics, who should sever all connections with him and his anti-Catholic New Order sect. The High Priest Caiphas ironically expressed it best: "What further need have we of witnesses? Behold, now you have heard the blasphemy" (Matthew 26:65/DRV).
As if "performing" the invalid New Order Mess of 1969 were not sacrilege enough, Francis-Bergoglio, during his January 15-19, 2015, Newpapal junket in the Philippines presided over the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan service while a raucous, irreverent crowd of Filipinos grabbed at the bread, much of it passed around like so much trash from one Filipino to another. It completely escapes us TRADITIO Fathers why Newchurchers argue so much about who can receive "communion," when they themselves treat it like the filthy bread that it is.
"Do not be deceived: God is not mocked," teaches St. Paul (Galatians 6:7/DRV). The technical sacrilege that these Newchurchers perpetrate is fortunately not on the Holy Eucharist, because Newchurch since 1968-1969 has neither priests nor a true Mass to confect it. And that includes Francis-Bergoglio, who was neither ordained a priest not consecrated a bishop in the valid Sacrament of Holy Orders, merely installed as a Novus Ordo presbyter/minister and a Newbishop under the invalid New Ordinal of 1968.
What a joke this Newpapal junket has been been! Francis-Bergoglio's final Mess on January 18, 2015, was "concelebrated" by 2,500 presbyter/ministers and 200-250 Newbishops, not a single one of was ever ordained or consecrated. This event was not a Mass, but a "flash crowd"! In order to boost the "flash crowd," Louis Tagle, the Newcardinal-Primate of the Philippines and Francis-Bergoglio's puppet, canceled all Newarchdiocesan Messes in Manila.
2,500,000 pieces of invalid bread were passed around from filthy hand to filthy hand. One can only imagine the technical sacrileges that the recipients committed with the Novus Ordo bread. The phony "hosts" weren't even "consecrated" by Bergoglio; they were "pre-consecrated" by who knows what presbyter/ministers. Who knows how many of these phony "hosts" ended up in the hands of Satanists for Black Masses, as already occurred in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, in the United States?
The crowd for Francis-Bergoglio's Mess was getting ugly because the bread wasn't being passed out fast enough, and there were long queues. The Newchurch crowd screamed "Pasa-pasa nalang!" (just pass them around). So the invalid bread was passed around like candy from one filthy hand to another. There is no question about this fact: Newvatican's own video of Bergoglio's Mess clearly shows the technical sacrilege. In the process many of the pieces of bread were broken and trampled underfoot in the mud (for it was raining that day). It seems that not even Newchurchers, by their own acts, believe in their phony "communion." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Philippine Star.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio has made it clearer than ever before that the "institutional" Newchurch is not Catholic. How could true Catholics not but be reminded of the Psalmist's words of prophecy: "The thickness of the earth is scattered upon the ground: our bones are scattered by the side of Hell" (Psalms 140:7/DRV). For truly the Newchurch of the New Order, "presided over" by Newpopes, is not the gate to Heaven, as is Our Lord's true Church, but the door to Hell.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I'm reading through the Douay-Rheims Bible -- for my fourth time! Each time it is as if I'm reading it anew, because I get so much out of it. Some Newchurchers have suggested to me that other versions might be more accurate. Is there a better version to read?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
No, there isn't. In fact, it is not generally known among either Catholics or Protestants, but the King James Version (1611) was greatly influenced by the Douay-Rheims Version (1582/1609), which was completed 2 to 29 years earlier. Although the King James Version was translated under a Protestant king, it is far more accurate than the bowdlerized "modern" Newchurch "translations," such as the despicable and highly inaccurate New American Bible that Newchurch uses in the United States. Moreover, the King James Version, based upon the Douay-Rheims, is a hallmark of English literature, having a great influence upon the English language to this day. There are few deviations in the King James from the Catholic renderings in the Douay-Rheims, which is still the best English-language version for Catholics.
It is also not well known among either Catholics or Protestants that the Old Testament texts that Our Lord quotes in the New Testament were not taken from the Hebrew Bible, but from the Greek Septuagint. So, you could well argue that the Septuagint is the most authoritative seminal version of the Old Testament. Certainly St. Jerome, the most inspired and accurate translator of the Latin Vulgate Bible, which is the authoritative version used by the Catholic Church, incorporates the Septuagint and other ancient versions.
That is why St. Jerome's Latin Vulgate, though a translation, is more accurate than any other single ancient version. St. Jerome had access to ancient versions of the Bible that no longer exist -- and did not exist for the Douay-Rheims or King James translators either. Moreover, unlike modern scholars, St. Jerome was fluent in Latin, Greek, and Hebrew, and perhaps other original languages. He was meticulous in his rendering of the texts into Latin, not going off on flights of fanciful personal interpretations, as modern "translators" do. His goal was to render as faithfully and as literally the Biblical texts, not to incorporate his personal political views, as modern "translators" do.
According to the noted traditional Catholic priest, traditional Jesuit, and Newvatican insider/author Malachi Martin, the Newchurch of the New Order already worshipped Satan from the time of the Modernistic Vatican II Council (1962-1965). Martin opens his Windswept House by vividly describing a Satanic ceremony called "The Enthronement of the Fallen Archangel Lucifer" held in St. Paul's Chapel within the Vatican on June 29, 1963, barely a week after the election of Newpope Paul VI-Montini, who signed all the documents replacing the Catholic Church with the Newchurch of the New Order. Fr. Martin later confirmed to New America magazine that the ceremony in fact had occurred as he had described: "Oh yes, it is true; very much so."
Just seven years after the close of that Council, which replaced the "institutional" Catholic Church with a Protestantized -- and worse -- doppelganger, Newpope Paul VI-Montini on June 29, 1972, publicly made the stunning admission that by the stratagem of that Council "the smoke of Satan has entered the temple of God." Of course, Montini, together with his co-conspirator Hannibal Bugnini, the Freemasonic presbyter/ministers who destroyed Catholic worship by replacing the valid Traditional Latin Mass, celebrated by priests ordained in the traditional Sacrament of Holy Orders, with a Protestant service "presided over" by unordained presbyter/ministers, who are merely "installed" under the invalid Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968.
Even Fr. Malachi Martin, who died in 1999, might not have foreseen just how far Satanism would take hold of the Newchurch of the New Order and its Newpopes in just a few more years, as illustrated by the photographs above, depicting Newpopes Benedict-Ratzinger and Francis-Bergoglio "throwing the horns," a well-known Satanic gesture. Traditional popes blessed with the Sign of the Cross of Christ. Newpopes throw the Satanic horns.
During his Newpapal junket to the region of the Philippines on January 15-19, 2015, Bergoglio joined the Newcardinal-Primate of the Philippines, Louis Tagle, in saluting the crowd by "throwing the horns." This gesture, well-known in Satanic heavy-metal music, is formed by extending the first and last fingers of either or both hands to mimic the horns of Satan. This symbol, which also goes by the name of the Devil Sign and the Devil Horns, has been frequently used at such "raves" as those put on put on by Satanic groups like Metallica and Black Sabbath and featuring references to the occult, Satan, and other supernatural forces of darkness and evil. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Philippine Daily Inquirer.]
True Catholics, what is clear is that Newpopes have ceased giving the traditional blessing, raising their hand and making the Sign of the Cross of Christ over people. Instead, they wave like children with an open hand or, worse, throw them the horns. Whatever they do, it's certainly not Catholic, but diabolical.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Is criticizing the pope, such as criticizing Francis-Bergoglio for ignorning sin under a banner of "mercy," a violation of the Eighth Commandment?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
No, criticism of the pope is most certainly not a violation of the Eight Commandment. The Eighth Commandment prohibits bearing false witness. If the criticism is true, it does not come under the prohibition of the Eighth Commandment. Nor is criticism of the pope a sin of detraction (a truthful statement, but unnecessarily revealing) because the pope is, by his own choice, a public figure, subject to public criticism in the conduct of his office for the Church.
In fact, true criticism of the pope from faithful members of the Catholic Church is necessary, in Christian charity, to keep the pope on the straight and narrow path -- from which many of them strayed to the detriment of their immortal souls and to the grave detriment of the Church itself. The locus classicus for this Catholic theological principle comes from the Catholic Church's Universal Theologian, St. Thomas Aquinas:
There being an imminent danger for the Faith, prelates must be questioned, even publicly, by their subjects. Thus, St. Paul, who was a subject of St. Peter, questioned him publicly on account of an imminent danger of scandal in a matter of Faith. And, as the Glossa of St. Augustine puts it (Ad Galatas 2.14), 'St. Peter himself gave the example to those who govern so that if sometime they stray from the right path, they will not reject a correction as unworthy even if it comes from their subjects....'" (Summa Theologica, IIa IIae, Q. 33, A. 4)

Francis-Bergoglio's Newpapal junket to the Philippines has subjected the Newpope to ridicule on a scale not seen hitherto. Filiponos are supposed to be reverent, but many of them have taken to ridiculing Bergoglio for everything to his hair, or lack thereof.
Bergoglio has tripped all over himself, seeming to claim that the Parisians brought upon themselves the Mohammedan terrorist attack because their satirical magazine, Charlie Hebot, had poked fun at the Mohammedan religion "offensively." Bergoglio has also waded ultra vires into secular politics, prattling on about such issues as the now-ridiculed theory of "global warming."
The Filipinos, no less satirical than the Parisians, it appears, have retaliated by poking fun at the balding Bergoglio's looks, claiming that he should wear a wig! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
True Catholics, in just two years, the Narcissist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio has turned his Newpapacy into a laughing-stock by making up doctrine and morals as he goes along, with little or no references to any Biblical or Catholic teaching. If he lived in the 16th century, St. Thomas More and Venerable Erasmus would have had a field-day satirizing this poor excuse for a Christian, let alone a Newpope.
Pagan Buddhism isn't even a religion. It doesn't believe in god; it teaches that each man is his own god. Actually, that's not far from the anti-Catholic teaching of Francis-Bergoglio that each man may make up his own code of doctrine, worship, and morality. That's why the common joke about Buddhism is that its principal tenet is that one must worship his navel. Its "god" is a caricature of a man with a pot belly and a giant navel. There is no universality in pagan Buddhism. This is the same end point of the Modernism, condemned by many popes as heresy, in the odor of which the Newchurch of the New Order and its Newpopes suffuse itself.
Catholic teaching, to the contrary, is that there is a universal worship (with minor exceptions in the East) for all, the Traditional Latin Mass coming to us from the Apostles; a universal doctrine, Catholic doctrine based upon the teachings of Christ and His Apostles in Sacred Tradition; and a universal morality, based upon Natural Law, which pertains to all men.
On January 14, 2015, Francis-Bergoglio joined the late Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla in worshipping in an atheistic Buddhist temple. He made a special point of changing the itinerary of his Newpapal junket to include worship at Ceylon's capital of Colombo to include worship at the opening of a casket containing relics of two important disciples of the Buddha. In 1984, when Wojtyla visited the Buddhist temple in Thailand, he took off his Newpapal sandals to signal that he would doff his Newpapacy in furtherance of the anti-Catholic Modernist doctrine known as "oecumenism." (Ceylon was renamed by the Democratic Socialists currently in power to Sri Lanka in 1972.)
Meanwhile, aboard the Newpapal aeroplane on January 15, 2015, Bergoglio said, in essence, that the Parisians deserved the January 7 Mohammedan terrorist attack because the satirical magazine, Charlie Hebdot, "abused" and "insulted" the Mohammedan terrorists by poking fun at their religion. Bergoglio proclaimed oxymoronically that "freedom of expression" was to be limited to statements that do not "offend" anyone.
Bergoglio compared humor and satire of religious foibles to insulting someone's mother, and observed that if someone insulted his mother, "he's asking for a punch." This statement was widely interpreted to signal some justification for the violence and terror that took place in Paris. Bergoglio seems as ignorant on this point as on so many others in Catholicism. For example, St. Thomas More and Venerable Erasmus wrote widely read lauded satires against the corruption of the Church in their age. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press and Reuters.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio has separated himself from Our Lord Jesus Christ, Who spoke the truth no matter whom it offended! To Christ, speaking the truth was paramount. To Bergogolio, who claims to be the "vicar" (substitute) of Christ, inoffensiveness is paramount. The two are so diametrically opposed that Bergoglio needs to examine his conscience to admit that he is actually representing not Christ, but his Narcisistic self!
The Italian News Agency ANSA revealed on January 9, 2014, that Francis-Bergoglio is considering packing the College of Newcardinals for the next Newpapal elections with twenty more voters, bringing the number to 140. It seems that Newcardidnal Antonio Canizares Llovera, before Bergoglio exiled him from Newrome to Valencia, Spain, had proposed the 17 per cent increase -- and Canizares Llovera was considered by the Newchurch Neocons to be a conservative! The proposal will be discussed at the February 2014 consistory of the Newcollege, when Bergoglio will add fifteen replacements.
Pope Sixtus V in the 16th century limited the number of cardinals to seventy, to correspond to the number of the Sanhedrin, but in fact the number was usually closer to two dozen. Starting with Pope John XXIII, the number has been growing larger and larger. When Paul VI-Monitini in 1973 prohibited cardinals (by that time being not traditional cardinals, but Newcardinals) over the age of 80 from voting, there were cries that the electoral process for pope had been invalidated.
True Catholics, more and more people are looking at Newchurch's finagling with the traditional procedures for elections and wondering whether recent elections are even valid. The more the electoral process is played with, the more the suspicions grow that recent electees are no more valid than the "newsaints" being created by a deeply-flawed, untraditional process initiated then Unsainted Newpope JPII-Wojtyla in 1984.
Newpope Francis-Bergoglio's startling statement, "Who am I to judge "gays"?," has had the effect desired by the Modernist/Liberalists upon the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order. Newchurch presbyter/ministers are coming out with pride in proclaiming their immorality. Recently, a presbyter/minister in Dublin, Ireland, did so -- from a Newchurch pulpit to boot -- and received not cries of condemnation, but a standing ovation, because he was so "brave" as to admit his perversion.
So far has Newchurch sunk to become a "sewer of blood and filth," Dante phrased it. But Bergoglio's presbyter/minister Martin Dolan didn't stop there. He also publicly came out in support of "gay marriage." He has won high praise from Marriage Equality Ireland and the Gay and Lesbian Equality Network.

True Catholics, the paedophiliac Bergoglio has not seen to it that presbyter/minister Dolan has lost his Newchurch collar. Of course not. Bergoglio supports "gay marriage," although he has not been "brave" (or perverted) enough yet to come out for it publicly. What a sad commentary on once-Catholic Ireland, which since the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965) has sunk into a moral and religious abyss and is slated to vote in a May 4, 2015, referendum to make "gay marriage" legal. Seventy per cent of the Irish, including the Irish prime minister, are supposed to support the perversion. And Francis-Bergoglio remains mute -- or rather surreptitiously supportive.
Francis-Bergoglio is arguendo the worst pope in the history of the Church. At least all the bad popes in the past pretended to be Catholic. At times Bergoglio doesn't even seem to be Christian. Lately he has been taking fire on two fronts.
On the first front, Bergoglio can't shake off the evidence that he is the first Marxist Newpope. Moreover, he is fully aware that he is earning that title. In an interview contained in "This Economy Kills," a new book by two Italian reporters on Newvatican, advance excerpts of which were provided on January 11, 2015, to the Associated Press, Bergoglio attempts to refute the perception that he is a Marxist. However, the attempt falls far short of the evidence that has been increasing compiled from his background in Argentina. Then, too, one might well ask: why should a pope, except a Marxist, be talking about the secular economy in the first place?
On the second front, Bergoglio in an address on January 12, 2015, condemned "deviant forms of religion." Although, on the surface, he was referring Mohammedan radicalism -- which, let's be honest, is actually fully supported by the Koran -- his description of "deviant religion" is a perfect description of his own Newchurch of the New Order, which radically deviated from the Catholic Church after the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965) into an anti-Catholic, anti-traditional, even anti-Christian sect. He also used another term of such religions: "mere ideological pretext" -- another perfect description of the anti-Catholic radical Newchurch of the New Order.
Of course, most people today refuse to admit the truth because they have been lulled by lies and Modernist/Liberalist propaganda to believe that the Protestantized New Order "establishment" Church, which pretends to be Catholic in order to retain money and power, is the Catholic Church. It is not. Anyone with eyes to see has to admit that it is a different Church, a a Newchurch, similar to that founded by Martin Luther.
True Catholics, the reality of the ruse of the Newchurch of the New Order posing as the Catholic Church is seen by many, although they don't want to admit it because it would topple their mendacious Modernist/Liberalist facade. Even Bergoglio knows it, but he will play along, blasphemously using the office of the Newpapacy to aggrandize power to control secular affairs. After all, Newchurch is a secular, not a religious institution, having temporal, not celestial goals. Frankly, such affairs are none of a Christian's business, but very much those of a Marxist.
TO OUR READERS: We are generalizing this report because the same technique is being used by Bernie Fellay's mendacious Neo-SSPX all over the United States, from which this instance came, and around the world as well.
One of our readers has pointed out a ploy that Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX is using to attempt to poach traditional chapels around the world in his greed for aggrandizement for his New Order-bent organization, which he has perverted from the original traditional Catholic principles of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre. Make no mistake, dear readers, Fellay's Neo-SSPX is not Archbishop Lefebvre's traditional Catholic organization, any more than the Newchurch of the New Order is the Catholic Church, or the New Mess is a valid Catholic Mass.
In a way, there is nothing new in the report recently received from our reader. Fellay's Neo-SSPX has always been on the lookout to poach chapels run by truly traditional independent Catholic priests to appropriate them for his Neo-SSPX coffers. For years, there have been reports that Fellay threatened well-established independent traditional Catholic churches and chapels that if they didn't turn over their properties to his Neo-SSPX, he would set up an opposing chapel to destroy them. Fellay attempted such a technique in the case of the late Fr. Wickens' New Jersey church and Fr. LeBlanc's Arizona church, among others. Fellay lost out in both of these cases, the former going to the Newdiocese, the latter going to a fully-traditional independent Catholic organization.
In the recent case of Our Lady's Chapel of Anytown, the property was owned by a fully-traditional independent traditional Catholic congregation, which had preserved and protected the Traditional Latin Mass for over thirty years. When the independent traditional Catholic priest died, the congregation was desperate to find someone to celebrate Mass. In ignorance, the congregation turned to the Institute of Christ the King, a New Order-bent organization, which initially had the approval of the local Newchurch bishop, probably because the chapel was so small that he considered it a way to sideline the New Order (false) traditionalists. But the Mass celebrated by the Institute's priest/presbyters was not the Traditional Latin Mass -- Newchurch prohibits and condemns that -- but only the Half New Order Mess of 1962, aka erroneously as the "Extraordinary" Mess. Probably the congregation was not aware that they were being taken, but in due course they figured out the truth.
The congregation insisted upon having the Fully Traditional Latin Mass, which the Institute of Christ the King was not willing to offer, nor was the Newbishop willing to permit it. In addition, the Institute of Christ the King had been trying to poach the church from its congregation. Therefore, after three years the traditional congregation dismissed the Institute's presbyter/minister. Again the traditional congregation was desperate to find someone to celebrate Mass and turned, again in ignorance, to Fellay's Neo-SSPX, which prompted the Newchurch bishop to "suppress" the chapel, from the New Order perspective, and to declare Fellay and his Neo-SSPX "unlawful."
Fellay's representative then proceeded to issue to the traditional congregation the standard threat, which Fellay has used for many years: if you want Neo-SSPX priest-presbyters to celebrate the Half New Order Mess for you, you have to sign over to me the real estate. Fellay's representative told the desperate congregation: sign the deed to the chapel property, and you can revoke it later, if you desire.
The congregation, having been burned twice now -- once by Newchurch and once by Fellay's Neo-SSPX -- got smart and engaged a lawyer to review the Neo-SSPX's proposed sales contract. When the lawyer examined the sales contact, he immediately found that Fellay's representative had been lying: there was no cancellation clause in the sales contract!
True Catholics, we TRADITIO Fathers have been around the block several times. After all, we were here from before Vatican II (1962-1965), so we have seen the institutional Church unravelling because of the predations of the Modernists, who plotted to destroy the Catholic Church and have replaced it with a phony Newchurch of a New Order. All we can say is: Beware! Don't under any circumstances deal with Bernie Fellay and his Neo-SSPX. If you do, as many others have done before you, you will find yourself stripped naked of everything that you possess.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:I'm dating a young lady who is pretty selfish and childish, yet I have the overwhelming urge to make things work, to forgive and forget. However, in two years she hasn't changed. Should I view this as a sign from God that I should not marry her?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
This is not a matter of forgiveness. It is a matter of Prudence (Practical Wisdom), the Queen of the Moral Virtues. The obvious conclusion in this case is there in front of you. You just need the courage to act prudently and break off this impending disaster.
Almost all marriages that fail in the first few years should never have been entered into in the first place. In all the cases that we have seen, the signs for failure were there well in advance, but the individual did not prudently act upon them, thus endangering his/her immortal soul. You usually get only one chance for a valid marriage, so you need to be as sure as you can that the proposed partner is at one with your religious and moral beliefs. Opposites may attract, but they make bad for marriage partners and for miserable lives.
"It takes one to canonize one" -- a Marxist Newpope to con-anize a Marxist "saint," that is. The Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio has announced that the theologists of his Congregation for the Causes of [New]saints has determined that the Marxist Newarchbishop Oscar Romero was martyred in odium fidei (not of the Catholic faith, of course, but of the Novus Ordo sect) rather because of his interfering in secular governmental matters. So, Bergoglio has put Romero on the fast-track to Newchurch con-anization as the first Marxist "saint" of the Newchurch of the New Order.
Bergoglio seems Hell-bent to con-anize his fellow Newjesuit and Marxist comrade, but members of his Newcuria had opposed Romero's con-anization" because the Marxist was in fact killed owing to his reprehensible involvement in secular affairs, namely, the civil war in El Salvador. Romero was the Newarchbishop of San Salvador, El Salvador (1977-1980), an associate of the murderous "Liberation Theology" Movement in Latin America, in which Newjesuits take up weapons to fight conservative governments and fight with violence for "social and economic justice."
In 1980 Romero became the victim of his own violent philosophy, killed while simulating an invalid New Order Mess. Romero is not even a Catholic bishop, as he was never consecrated a bishop in the valid traditional Sacrament of Holy Orders, but only "installed" under the invalid Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968.
The Newvatican Congregation had formerly blocked Romero's con-anization because it deems Liberation Theology to be an atheistic Communist philosophy. However, now that the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio has been elected, a self-proclaimed friend of Marxists and a Liberation Theology advocate himself, he has unblocked Romero's con-anization and is moving him along the fast-track, calling his fellow Marxist "a man of God." Bergoglio thus joins the Protestant Anglicans and Lutherans, who have already proclaimed Romero a Protestant "saint" for his liberalist political activity. Bergoglio has publicly stated that some of his best friends are Marxists and that Marxists are often better than Christians.
True Catholics, all of this goes back to the time of the Modernist Vatican II Council. Then the late Fr. Malachi Martin, a traditional Catholic priest and noted Vatican insider and best-selling author, who renounced his membership in the Jesuit order in 1965, the year in which the Modernist Vatican II Council ended, exposed in great detail the Jesuits' involvement in Communist Liberation Theology in his 1988 blockbuster book, The Jesuits.

Reacting to criticism by the TRADITIO Network (Daily Commentary from the TRADITIO Fathers of January 2, 2015) and others, astronomer Neil deGrasse Tyson now contends that his Christmas 2014 tweet demeaning Christ and elevating Isaac Newton shouldn't be interpreted to mean that he's anti-Christian.
Tyson now claims that he didn't mean to be anti-Christian -- though he did not state that he was Christian. Nevertheless, his "apology" contained yet another dig against Christians. "We know Isaac Newton was born on Christmas Day. Who knows when Jesus was born?" Tyson claimed that "it's free speech." Fine, so then he won't object to the free speech of the TRADITIO Network and others questioning his attitude as a scientist hostile to the very religion that created the science that he now hawks. The Twittersphere, in its free speech, has roundly condemned Tyson as an "arrogant fool" for his biased and intemperate anti-Christian remark.
Tyson was slated to host a new late-night "Star Talk" show on the National Geographic Channel starting in April 2015. His anti-Christian jibe against Christ on a high Christian feastday could have put that job in jeopardy. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
True Catholics, Tyson learned that he stepped into a minefield when he chose to demean Christ and Christians. Tyson's predecessor, the late astronomer Carl Sagan, at least had enough self-control to squelch his agnosticism when he narrated his 1980 Cosmos series. Tyson has now been forced into a defensive position about his anti-Catholicism and his anti-Christianity if he wanted to keep his new talk show.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I was taught from childhood that you must burn any paper images of Our Lord, Our Lady, the Saints, etc., if they are blessed. However, what is done with those many images we have that are not blessed, such as mailings with religious images, holy cards, etc. What is the proper way to dispose blessed Sacramentals and non-blessed religious items?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Material Sacramentals are essentially devotional items, particularly blessed items, such as holy water, holy cards, Bibles and missals, rosaries, etc. When such a Sacramental becomes so worn that it can no longer be used decorously, the sacramental should, as much as possible, be returned to the earthly elements: earth, air, fire, or water. Excess Holy Water, for example, can be poured into a suitable spot of earth, such as a garden. Excess incense can be burned into the air. A holy card or book can be burned. Excess blessed ashes can be poured into a body of water, such as a lake or ocean.
If such disposal is not convenient, at least the Sacramental should be altered so that its form no longer appears to be a Sacramental. For instance, a holy card can be torn into pieces and then disposed of. A statue can be broken into small pieces and then disposed of.
It should be noted that material Sacramentals lose their blessing if they are substantially broken in such a way that they can no longer be used for their sacred purpose, of if they are sold by one individual to another for money. In the latter case, the item would have to be blessed again. However, if a person replaces one worn-out sacramental with another of the same kind (e.g., a scapular), it is not necessary to have the replacement scapular be blessed.
It is an old custom that on June 23, the Vigil of the Feast of St. John the Baptist, a fire be built in which no longer useful Sacramentals are burned and then buried.
Just two days after Joseph Shaw, Chairman of the Newchurch-affiliated Latin Mass Society [referring to the Half New Order Mess of 1962] of England and Wales, pleaded with the Bishops' [Sic] Conference of England and Wales that they should not "marginalize" Newchurch-affiliated "traditionalists," the Newbishops issued a stunning declaration: they deemed Shaw and his pseudo-traditionalists to be "rigorist heretics," just like the Donatists of the early Church. The Newbishops' statement reflected Francis-Bergoglio's previous statement that Newchurch-affiliated "traditionalists" are just like the Pelagians of the early Church.
Given Bergoglio's cockeyed off-the-cuff, anti-Catholic "homilies," it seems that he and his Newbishops just can't get their theology right. One wonders whether they even know what Donatism or Pelagiasm is, or whether they are just using a fancy way of foully calling their opponents "niggers" for rhetorical effect.
In their document the Newchurch authorities in England and Wales issued a "Reflection Document for Clergy" in which they spurned what they termed the "traditional order" against sexual sins, presumably including paedophilia, fornication, and adultery, all of which are specifically condemned in the Bible. The Newbishops went on to issue a "thinly-veiled accusation of heresy" against Newchurch-affiliated "traditionalists."
True Catholics, Newchurch is spiraling into the worst kind of Protestantism faster than anyone could have thought possible before the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965). Now Francis-Bergoglio and his Newbishops are openly spurning Sacred Scripture (the Bible), having already spurned Sacred Tradition. Thus, they are left without either of the two foundations of the Catholic Faith.
Newcardinal Raymond "Bully" Burke has become something of a favorite of the Newchurch-affiliated "traditionalists" because he will emit the occasional guileful word that sounds "traditionalist." In a December 22, 2014, interview with Le Figaro, Burke whined: it is "amazing" that Newchurch "traditionalists" are now being accused by its head, Francis-Bergoglio, of opposing his New Order sect. Is Burke daft? What did he expect after he and they sold out to the fraudulent "Extraordinary Latin" Messes, Protestantized doctrine, and unCatholic morality.
Burke himself is no paragon of traditionalism. He consecrated a "trangendered" man as a Novus Ordo "nun" -- an abomination that was reported to Newvatican by his outraged Newdiocese, but of course nothing was done about it in Newrome. Then he illegally persecuted -- as a court determined -- an independent traditional-leaning church in an attempt to appropriate its 11,000,000-dollar property to pay off for sex crimes. While mouthing traditionalist-talk, Burke donned Novus Ordo togs and simulated the scam of the invalid New Order Mess. Burke has paid a high price for his treason toward the Catholic Faith. But God is not mocked: Burke has been stripped by the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio of all Newcurial offices and essentially exiled to the little island of Malta, to be chaplain to a mediaeval military organization headquartered on that island.
Burke railed against the final relatio that came out of Newchurch's October 2014 Extraordinary Synod on the Family, which called for Newchurch to "accept and value the homosexual orientation." But in his hypocrisy Burke failed to mention in the interview who called that synod: Bergoglio. Who orchestrated that synod: Bergoglio. Who overruled that synod and ordered that the pro-homosexual language be retained in the relatio even when the synod participants failed to achieve the required two-thirds vote: Bergoglio.
True Catholics, Burke remains a New Order prelate. Burke has not separated himself from the New Order sect or from its Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio. Why? Is he afraid to be a Catholic even if he has to give up his scarlet duds? Let's face it: Burke is a deceitful demagogue, who has no courage to do what Our Lord directed his Apostles to do in such a case: leave and "shake off the dust from your feet" (Matthew 10:14/DRV).
Francis-Bergoglio won't try his puffed-up Newcardinals and Newbishops for the paedophilia that they continue to commit in his Newpapacy, but he announced on January 2, 2014, that he will prosecute a common man who scaled St. Peter's Basilica to a ledge of the church in order to protest against laws that he says lost him his business in Italy. Ironically, Bergoglio himself recently condemned the City of Rome for alleged corruption, while ignoring the rampant corruption in his own Newrome, that is, Newvatican. Just more hypocrisy from the Marxist Newpope.
Poor Marcello has been held by Bergoglio in the cramped Newvatican jail since being arrested. This the mediaeval jail in which Benedict-Ratzinger imprisoned his butler, Paolo Gabriele, when he revealed the truth to the Italian press about the corruption of Ratzinger's regime. It was reported that Gabriele's cell was so small that he could do nothing but stand up. Such torture should rightly have come before the United Nations Commission on Torture, but somehow Ratzinger, the former Nazi, got off scot free from that crime.
Curiously, Finizio articulated Bergoglio's own supposed position, criticizing politicians, Europe, and "financial dictatorship", and calling on Bergoglio for help in the cause. Instead, the hypocritical Bergoglio imprisoned him. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
True Catholics, here we see more of the hypocrisy of the modern Caiphas, Francis-Bergoglio. His own Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyter/Ministers are continuing to sodomize, rape, and otherwise sexually assault children in their congregations, but in two years all the hypocrite Bergoglio has done is to appoint some members to an impotent commission that has not yet even met! Bergoglio, in Catholic theology, is an accomplice to the crimes and is as morally guilty as it he had been sodomizing and raping the poor children himself.
Another one of the casualties of the New Order sect's takeover of the institutional Church in the 1960s has been the Knights of Columbus. The Knights were founded in 1882 as a lay fraternal organization to assist low-income immigrants from Europe to the United States in the Great Immigration Wave around the turn of the 19th/20th centuries. It addition to providing assistance, it came to be known for promoting Catholic education. After World War II this promotion came to include outreach to non-Catholics in an effort to convert them to the Catholic Faith. Readers may remember the small advertisements placed by the Knights of Columbus in various newspapers and magazines, offering little instruction booklets in the Catholic faith. No more.
Since the Modernist Vatican II Council (1962-1965), the Knights of Columbus have been converted into a cheering group for the New Order, which its founder, Fr. Michael McGivney, would have condemned as heretrical and certainly not Catholic. The Knights of Columbus have been involved in various scandals in the last decades for supporting, often surreptitiously, unCatholic morality, such as abortion. Now, the Knights have taken the next step down the path of New Order conversion, support of "gay marriage."
On December 31, 2014, the Knights of Columbus Council "happily" approved the "wedding" reception of two lesbians in its hall in Madison, Indiana. The Council announced: "We are happy to accommodate Taylor's [one of the lesbian "partners"] request to hold her reception there." The Knights of Columbus have no official policy on immoral "marriage" of gay, lesbian, bisexual, transgendered -- in spite of its claim that it is the "strong right harm" of the "Catholic Church."
True Catholics, like many once-Catholic organizations, the Knights of Columbus know that Newchurchers are too deluded to look below the surface. (If they did, they would have nothing to do with the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order.) Thus, such organizations -- like the Knights of Columbus, like Newvatican -- retain certain trappings, feathered hats, for example, to delude the clueless into thinking that they are the same organizations as when they were Catholic. They aren't. The Knights of Columbus is now just another New Order organization whose purpose, whether they admit it directly or not, is to destroy the Catholic Church. Now the Knights of Columbus are no different from the Freemasons, the Newchurchers, and the Protestant Anglicans.
Like a modern-day Caiphas, Francis-Bergoglio lashed out on December 31, 2014, not against his own corrupt self and his own New Order sect, but against "Rome," by which, of course, he did not mean his own corrupt Newrome, but the secular city of Rome. Bergoglio claimed that the city needed a "spiritual and moral renewal because of its "corruption," but he was totally mute about the corruption and the need for moral renewal in his own Newrome!
Now, two years after his election as Newpope, Bergoglio still has done nothing concrete to stop the rape and sodomy of children by his Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyter/ministers, nor has he done anything concrete to root out the financial crimes of his Vatican Bank -- except to appoint yet another corrupt Newcardinal, George Pell, who was involved in paedophilia scandals, to head the bank. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
True Catholics, why is it that Newchurch leaders are so blind to their own gravely-sinful responsibility for destroying the Catholic Church in Newrome? Maybe it's not really that surprising. The corrupt High Priest Caiphas, who put Christ to death, couldn't see what he was doing either. A Jewish historian, Flavius Josephus, exposed the truth and saw that God had used the Romans to bring destruction upon the corrupt Jewish leadership and destroy their temple in A.D. 70, so that, as Our Lord prophesied, "Amen I say to you there shall not be left here a stone upon a stone that shall not be destroyed" (Matthew 24:2/DRV). Bergoglio should rightly fear that Providence wills a similar spectacular destruction for his anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order.
Just as we TRADITIO Fathers predicted, now seven years after Benedict-Ratzinger's Great "Motu" Mess Hoax of 2007, the Latin Mass Society of England & Wales has admitted that Francis-Bergoglio has "marginalized" the pseudo-traditionalists in Newchurch. In 2007, while Ratzinger was trying to trick the Neo-SSPX into his New Order sect, he issued the Motu Proprio Summorum pontificum. Ratzinger's hoax involved not the Traditional Latin Mass, but the Half New Order Vatican II Mess of 1962 and was intended to expire. Now that the Neo-SSPX clergy and laity have rejected Superior-Dictator Bernie Fellay's attempts to sell out the Neo-SSPX to the New Order sect, the motu has been essentially repealed by Francis-Bergoglio.
In an Open Letter of December 22, 2014, LMS Chairman Joseph Shaw wrote to all the Newbishops of England and Wales to plead with them to reverse their "marginalization" of the Half New Order Mess of 1962, aka erroneously as the "Extraordinary" Mess. The letter assured the Newbishops that extraordinarians were fully "united" with the Modernist Newchurch, but just wanted a "Latin Mass," not even the Traditional Latin Mass. It appears that at this point the LMS is willing to settle for Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Novus Ordo service, as long as it is in Latin.
The Open Letter admitted that unless the Newbishops embrace the "Extraordinary" Mess, many pseudo-traditionalist members of the New Order sect would become "radicalized" and seek the valid Traditional Latin Mass outside Newchurch. The Open Letter concluded by declaring that pseudo-traditionalist Newchurchers are in fact "spiritual children" of the New Order. That is exactly what happened to a large percentage of the LMS membership. Once it figured out that the LMS leadership was, like the Neo-SSPX, selling out to the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order, many members left and found the valid Traditional Latin Mass outside the New Order sect. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic Herald.]
True Catholics, Ratzinger and Bergoglio are scared to death that traditionalist-leaning Newchurchers will reject the Half New Order Vatican II "Mess of 1962" with the invalid, unordained presbyter/ministers that shovel it out in Novus Ordo temples, and at long list find the valid Traditional Latin Mass celebrated by traditional Catholic priests ordained in the valid and traditional Sacrament of Holy Orders. Yet that is the only honest and Catholic solution to the anti-Catholicism of Ratzinger and Bergoglio's New Order sect: Get out of it!
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Does the Church condemn the heliocentric model of the solar system? Is the geocentric model required to be believed in de fide? I am being told that Catholics must believe that the earth is stationary and that the sun revolves around the earth.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
No, the Church does not condemn the heliocentric model, nor does it require belief in the geocentric model de fide. It is a fact often forgotten that both original modern proponents of the heliocentric model, Nicolaus Copernicus, a Catholic cathedral canon, and Galileo Galilei, were devout Catholics, although the theory was originally advanced by one of those brilliant ancient Greeks so respected by the Church, Aristarchus of Samos.
Even the scientifically-learned Doctor of the Church, Robert Cardinal Bellamine, Galileo's friend, had no problem with the heliocentric model, but simply warned Galileo not to be so presumptuous as to turn his scientific "theory" into religious dogma. After all, Galileo was far from perfect scientifically. He got entirely wrong his explanation of the physical forces that caused the tides, even though Bellarmine had warned Galileo not to publish the error because it needed more testing. Yet the headstrong Galileo did not listen to the learned Doctor's counsel and published the erroneous theory anyway.
It was Galileo's contemporary, Caesar Cardinal Baronius, who put the point best: "Sacra Scriptura ostendit non motus caelorum, sed viam ad caelos." That, after all, is the real religious principle involved.
In 2014 Neil DeGrasse Tyson tried to replace Carl Sagan, whose widely-praised 1980 Cosmos series treated God's astronomical universe for a Public Broadcasting System audience. Sagan himself was no great example, a polygamist who had three wives, but he was at least a self-declared theist, though not a Christian. Tyson, on the other hand, may well be an atheist. For sure, he is Christian- and Catholic-hater. His not-so-widely-praised 2014 Cosmos series never misses an opportunity to dump on religion, particularly the traditional Catholic religion.
On Christmas Day 2015, Tyson stirred up a hornet's nest when he chose to feature "the birth of a child who would change the world" in a Tweet. But this Child was not Our Lord Jesus Christ, but Isaac Newton, a brilliant man, but a heretic, occultist, and Catholic-hater. It seems that Tyson is too. Tyson went on to opine in his Tweet: "Christmas is not merely humbug, but bunkum." An irate Twittersphere fought back, calling Tyson a "moron." One Tweeter responded: "At a minimum, tweeting his disdain for Christmas on Christmas day, while many people are trying to enjoy a happy, joyous holyday -- is in poor taste. Believe what you want but when your arrogance extends to ruining others' holydays, you have become an arrogant fool."
Moreover, Tyson seems abysmally ignorant of the man that he is praising: Isaac Newton. If Sagan denied Christ, and Tyson denied God, Newton twice signed his agreement with the Thirty-nine Articles of Protestant Anglicanism. Yet at the same time a perjurer, as a self-proclaimed Arian heretic, denying the divinity of Christ, and a sworn believer in the occult.
True Catholics, Newton may have been a great physicist and mathematician, but he was also a pretty mixed-up guy religiously, to say the least -- an embarrassing fact that scientists of the present day try to hide about their "god." Yet Newton himself considered his religious writings more important than his scientific ones. What are we to conclude? That in the case of Sagan and Tyson, at least, it takes one to know one!
Now that Francis-Bergoglio has given up his (non-existent) Newpapal tiara to become a secularist politician, hawking the discredited and mendacious pseudo-science of global cooling/global warming/climate change/global cooling, his Newpapal office, which is still riddled after two years with unresolved Newclerical paedophilia and financial corruption, is continuing to sink into the mire. His new trip into pseudo-science has made open enemies of significant groups, who are joining traditional Catholics in denouncing Bergoglio as a hypocritical unCatholic Newpope. Bergoglio's first encyclical letter, which is to be a political screed leading up to the United Nations 2015 "Climate Meeting" in Paris, will abandon Catholicism completely to treat secular matters.
Bergoglio seems to have given up his office of Newpope to speak rather as the secular President of the Vatican City State. In his Modernist Marxist radicalism, the international press is reporting that Bergoglio is already being blown to smithereens by stepping onto the landmine of secularism. Significant groups of Newchurchers are rejecting Bergoglio and his entree into secularist politics, objecting that such issues are outside the defined scope of the papacy. The following groups, among others, are already lining up against him, or renewing their rejection of his condemned Modernist policies:
The coming Newpapal encyclical letter is supposed to be between 50 and 60 pages long. That would mean that Bergoglio will not be writing it, but will be hiring out the writing to pseudo-scientist bureaucrats, because Bergoglio himself is hard-pressed even to give a New Order "homily" lasting more than five minutes, usually given without any thought off the cuff. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Guardian.]
True Catholics, it seems that the man who claims to be the pope, or at least Newpope, doesn't even bother to talk about religion any more. Hypocritically, the man whose Vatican Bank is under investigation for fraud and corruption denounces "an economy and a finance that are lacking in ethics." Well, Jorge, throw in a few more thousands of kids sodomized and raped under your regime, and you yourself seem to have made the anti-ethical secular Big Time!
