When presbyter Ezinwanne Igbo, of the Newarchdiocese of Brisbane, Australia, was "excommunicated" on February 10, 2018, for blabbing the contents of twelve "reconciliations" in 2016-2017, true Catholics, who never attended his Novus Ordo church anyway, were relieved to recall that since 1973 Newchurch abandoned confessions and the Sacrament of Penance, and replaced them with an invalid Protestant "reconciliation" service. Newchurch, as usual, tried to cover up the scandal, but it came out nevertheless, leaving egg on Francis-Bergoglio's face. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Brisbane, Australia Courier Mail.]
True Catholics, since 1968 Newchurch has not ordained priests in the Sacrament of Holy Orders, but merely installs them as presbyter-ministers under the Protestantized New Ordinal, which deletes the conferral of power for presbyters to "forgive and retain sins." After all, the Protestants, whom Newchurch apes, don't believe in the Sacrament of Penance!
The head of the Newchurch Congregation for the Divine Worship is now claiming that the widespread practice of "communion" in the hand is part of a "most insidious diabolical attack." Robert Sarah, who is no traditional Catholic, but a heretic of the New Order sect, is now whining, fifty years too late, that "Satan's target is the Sacrifice of the Mass and the Real Presence of Jesus" (irreverently, Sarah is on a first-name basis with The Lord). So he wrote in the preface to a book released February 22, 2017, La Distribuzione della Comunione sulla Mano. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]
Sarah, like all clueless Newchurchers, hasn't even now come to terms with the fact the Catholic Church was done away with as the "institutional" Church and replaced by the Newchurch of the New Order when Paul VI-Montini signed on November 21, 1964, the Constitution of the Newchurch of the New Order, known as Lumen gentium. That document of the Vatican II Anti-council opened the door to invalidating the Catholic Mass and Sacraments into an invalid Novus Ordo farce.
Sarah is an unbelievable hypocrite. In his preface he proposes the Unsaints JPII-Wojtyla and Theresa of Calcutta as examples of "reverence" for the Novus Ordo cookie. Wojtyla was infamous for his "Messes sauvage," or "Wild Messes," which he conducted as Newpope, complete with tom-toms and bare-breasted lectoressses. Theresa was infamous for her "Half-Hindu Messes," in which she while seated handed out the Novus Ordo cookie to followers.
In addition to satire, we TRADITIO Fathers enjoy irony. Sarah, beloved of the Neocons, is one confused Newcardinal of Newchurch not to realize the fraud that Vatican II and Paul VI-Montini perpetrated. The Modernist Newchurch of the New Order, which Sarah idolizes, is not the Catholic Church. Why worry about an invalid cookie, which is certainly not a Sacrament, fabricated at a Protestantized New Order service that is not a Mass? The greatest irony is that the man who perpetrated the fraud and destroyed the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church is none other than the same Paul VI-Montini, the Newpope whom Francis-Bergoglio has announced he will proclaim a Unsaint of the Newchurch later in 2018!
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
We are instructed that as a penitential practice for Lent (and in other seasons as well), in addition to prayer and fasting, we should give alms. I have heard that alms must be given without recognition, or else one's recompense is lost. Is that information correct?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
No, it is not. Almsgiving does not have to be anonymous. Moreover, most Catholics don't even know what almsgiving is. It is not write a check to some well-publicized "charity," many of which are phony anyway. Almsgiving is simply performing an act of mercy (from the Greek word eleein, to have mercy. Almsdeeds, or Works of Mercy, are divided into seven spiritual works and seven corporal works. The spiritual works are more meritorious than the corporal works. The purpose of the corporal works is to bring forth spiritual fruit.
The Seven Spiritual Almsdeeds
The Seven Corporal Almstdeeds
You will notice that giving money to charity per se is not a almsdeed. In fact, many of the most publicized "charities" are phony, spending the vast majority of funds received on "administration." If you want to offer money, offer it to the traditional church, chapel, or oratory that brings to you the true Mass and true Sacraments, to which you have an obligation in charity. Otherwise, offer your own acts, e.g., making a meal for an elderly person in your neighborhood, driving your disabled neighbor to a doctor's appointment, or some similar act. Our Lord would definitely approve of such direct acts to assist one's neighbor rather than writing a check to a phony charity.
The infamous Newbishop Pietro Amenta was a member of Newvatican's highest appellate court, the Roman Rota, appointed by Ratzinger in 2012, and had been charged for obscene acts in 1991 and for sexual harassment in 2004. In 2017 Amenta sexually assaulted a man in a public market. When the man threatened to file a police report, Amenta retorted, "Don't you know who I am?" and fled the scene of the crime.
Amenta was later apprehended, and his home searched, where the police found a cache of pornographic photographs of children. On February 19, 2018, Amenta pled guilty and was sentenced in a Roman court on two counts: sexual assault and possession of child pornography. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the French daily newspaper La Croix.]
True Catholics, the moral perversion and rot in the Newchurch of the New Order goes all the way to the highest ranks. Benedict-Ratzinger, who was surely no traditional Catholic, but for over thirty years ran Newchurch's paedophilia operation as Prefect of [New Order] Doctrine and then as Newpope, and was finally forced to abdicate from the Newpapacy in 2013 because of complicity in paedophile crimes, appointed many of his own perverted ilk to the highest offices in the Newchurch of the New Order, like Newbishop Amenta.
Francis-Bergoglio too has been recently been exposed by the international press as actively continuing Newchurch's paedophilia operation, just as we TRADITIO Fathers reported from that dark day, March 13, 2013, on which he became Newpope, and in the five-year period since.
In Newrome, Francis-Bergoglio is up to his bag of anti-Catholic tricks again. An old trick often used by politicians, particularly of the Marxist variety, is called misdirection. If one desires to impose an iniquitous change, this method does it quickly and without fanfare. Then, to misdirect opponents of the change, this method introduces something more outrageous, in this case, handing out the (invalid) Novus Ordo "communion" cookie to bigamists living in a state of public sin. Opponents will then focus their efforts on defeating the seemingly more outrageous initiative.
Francis-Bergoglio is a militant Marxist. He is a revolutionary who wants to conform Newchurch to Marxist principles so as to establish a New World Order. On December 8, 2015, he made his principal move: he introduced divorce into Newchurch by a little-known Motu Proprio Mitis iudex Dominus Iesus quickly and without fanfare. Mitis extends to infinity the grounds for a Newchurch annulment, aka "divorce." Secondly, it allows the local Newbishops to add any and all grounds that they please, so that there really are no limits.
To misdirect Newchurchers from his iniquitous approval of "Newchurch divorce" in Mitis, Francis-Bergoglio called a Synod on the Family to entangle Newchurchers in a discussion on the outrageous proposal for bigamists living in a state of public sin to being handed the Novus Ordo "communion" cookie. Meanwhile, Bergoglio's more outrageous approval of "Newchurch divorce" in Mitis went essentially unnoticed.
If you impose completely dissoluble "marriage" for all, anyone who wants a "Newchurch divorce" can get one and is then free to "marry" anyone he or she likes, with the bonus of being able to receive the Novus Ordo "communion" cookie. No Church that has divorce-on-demand can be Catholic in any sense. No Church that approves of sodomy in any sense can be Catholic. Therefore, Newchurch is not Catholic. No true Catholic should be fooled by the attempted misdirections of the heretic Marxist Newpope.
The Catholic Church always understood that many popes probably go to Hell. Although they had all the prayers of the Church behind them, many of them failed in their office miserably. "The bigger they are, the harder they fall," if you will. Certainly, one could say this about the Newpopes who held the office of the Newpapacy after the Vatican II- Anticouncil. These men knowingly destroyed the Catholic Mass, the Catholic Sacraments, Catholic doctrine, Catholic morality, Catholic schools, and Catholic religious orders.
Francis-Bergoglio on February 15, 2018, announced that he would con-anize Paul VI-Montini, who signed all of the sixteen documents of the Vatican II Anti-council to destroy the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church, as an Unsaint of Newchurch later in 2018. Montini has also been frequently reported as a homosexual, trolling the back alleys of Rome seeking "partners."
At the same time Bergoglio indicated that he and Benedict-Ratzinger too are in the pipeline of the Newchurch Unsaint-making machine as well. Why not? Newchurch is so anti-Catholic that its leaders will have to be named Unsaints in an effort to fool the world that Newchurch has anything of the "one, holy, catholic, and apostolic" about it. Newvatican will easily phony up a "miracle" for the Second and Third Paedophile Newpopes Ratzinger and Bergoglio. Newchurch has already done so for other Unsaints, even when their physicians have sworn that no miracles took place, just medication administered. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio is the modern analogue of the Roman emperor Nero, who crucified Christians right and left and is referred to by the diabolical number "666" in the last book of the New Testament. Nero was deathly afraid that for all his crimes he would go to a place deep in Hades, so he wanted the Roman Senate to deify him before his death. Like everything else about the heretical and anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order, which became the "institutional" Church in 1964 when Paul VI-Montini signed the Newchurch Constitution, Unsaints are phony. In Newchurch the previously long and meticulous process of canonization was replaced in 1984 with a system so rushed and anti-Catholic that even the Arch-heretic Martin Luther was talked about for con-anization in the Millennial Year 2000!
Francis-Bergoglio has been having a run failures in recent weeks concerning his practice of appointing tainted Newbishops. His insistence upon maintaining the paedophile supporter Juan Barros in Osorno, Chile, led to riots there, the condemnation of the Chilean government, and paltry attendance at his Messes on his Newpapal junket there in January 2018.
Then the Associated Press published incontrovertible evidence that Bergoglio had lied when he told the international press that he knew nothing about the paedophilia of Barros. He had even received a hand-delivered letter via his Child Protection Czar, Newcardinal Sean O'Malley, from one of the child victims that gave five pages of details, and had personally signed correspondence with the Chilean Newbishops about Barros. So Bergoglio was caught in a double, bald-faced lie.
Now the Nigerian Newbishop that Francis-Bergoglio had insisted upon keeping in spite of his rejection by the vast majority of the Newdiocese has finally been fired. Bergoglio had threatened Newchurch presbyters in the Newdiocese of Ahiara with suspension if they did not agree in writing to obey Bergoglio and accept his appointee, Peter Okpaleke. Many of the presbyters refused to sign. On February 19, 2018, Bergoglio admitted defeat and fired Opaleke. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Catholic Herald]
True Catholics, this revolt was viewed as a test of Francis-Bergoglio's "authority," and the heretical Newpope flunked the test. Although we TRADITIO Fathers warned our readers of this Marxist Modernist from the first day of his regime five years ago, it has only now begun to sink into the minds of the clueless Newchurchers and even the international press what a fraud this Bergoglio is. But now he is on a steep downward slope. He may not even last out the year, but join his predecessor, Benedict-Ratzinger, in the Discredited Newpopes' Retirement Home.
The Newcardinals who elected Francis-Bergoglio in 2013 extracted two promises from him contingent upon his election and that he would clean up the corrupt Vatican Bank, and he would rout the paedophile Newcardinals, Newpriests, and presbyters from Newchurch. The fraudulent Francis-Bergoglio has failed to do either. That is, until he was caught in two mortal lies.
Bergoglio swore on two occasions that he knew nothing about the paedophile activities of his own appointed Newbishop for Osorno, Chile. No less a body than the Associated Press found a document signed by Bergoglio that proved him a liar. Then it was discovered that Bergoglio's own head of his Child Protection Commission had hand-delivered to him a personal letter from one of the child victims detailing exactly how he had been sexually assaulted by Bergoglio's Newbishop. So Bergoglio was doubly exposed as a liar.
During his January 2018 Newpapal junket to Chile, Francis-Bergoglio was greeted with widespread demonstrations denouncing him as a paedophile supporter, a denunciation in which the President, First Lady, and Congress of Chile joined. Attendees at his phony Novus Ordo services were about one-third of what had been anticipated.
On February 17, 2018, beset on all sides by hostile Newchurchers denouncing his complicity with paedophilia, Francis-Bergoglio was forced into taking a symbolic move. He finally appointed the full membership of his Child Protection Commission, which had languished so badly that two of his original, partial appointments, who were themselves child victims of paedophile presbyters, resigned with great public protest. Bergoglio has now appointed Newcardinal Sean O'Malley to head the Committee, to which Bergoglio has still not given its statues to operate. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Zenit News Service.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's phony Child Protection Commission is mere window-dressing. It has no operating statutes, yet already it does have an expensive, glitzy web page, full of "guidelines" and "templates," nothing more. The Committee is merely "advisory," having no enforcement power whatsoever against the rampant perverted presbyters. Meanwhile Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust continues unabated according to outside studies. The paedophile Newchurch clergy has merely gone underground, with Bergoglio's support. The last five years have been deadly for Newchurch children, just has been the deadly Newpapcy of Bergoglio for the souls of his Newchurchers.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:My granddaughter is attending a so-called "catholic" college and is sending me links about woman priests. What can I send her about the Catholic doctrine on this subject? What the Newchurch schools give now is not Catholic: no history, no dogma, just expensive trash.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Only a baptized male can be validly ordained a priest. (Note that Newchurch has not ordained priests since the Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968, but merely "installs" presbyter-ministers.) Divine positive law excludes women from strictly priestly functions. Such is the teaching of St. Paul (1 Corinthians 14:34; 1 Timothy 2:11) as interpreted by the Fathers and as acted upon in the Church, so that certain sects (Pepuzians or Quintillians, and Collyridians) that admitted women to the priesthood were condemned as heretics.
Moreover, although widows and deaconesses were allowed by the Church to perform ceremonies that had no sacramental efficacy and to exercise certain functions in respect of female catechumens, the sick, and the poor, they were never considered as sharing in the true office of deacon.
Even the Newchurch of the New Order, which is not Catholic, has (so far) maintained this doctrine of the Church, in the Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith's Declaration "Inter Insigniores" (Declaration on the Admission of Women to the Ministerial Priesthood) of October 15, 1976 (AAS 69 , pp. 98-116), which gives a detailed summary of the traditional doctrine, albeit couched in Modernist language. Even Newpope JPII-Wojtyla confirmed this teaching in an arguendo infallible form in "Ordinatio Sacerdotalis" of May 22, 1994.

Bishop Donald Sanborn, a traditional Catholic bishop, has announced that he will consecrate Fr. Joseph Selway on February 22, 2018, the Feast of the Chair of St. Peter at Antioch. The consecration will take place at Most Holy Trinity Church in Brookville, Florida, in the United States.
Traditional Catholics often despair that there are no traditional bishops to consecrate bishops and priests validly, as the Newchurch of the New Order no longer has the traditional Sacrament of Holy Orders. Newchurch no longer consecrates bishops nor ordains priests, but since 1968 merely "installs" them like Protestants in an invalid Protestantized New Order rite.
The consecrandus is Fr. Joseph Selway, 40. He was ordained in the traditional Catholic Sacrament of Holy Orders in 2001. Since 2003 he has been teaching at Queen of All Saints Academy School and serving as chaplain to the Sisters of St. Thomas Aquinas. Fr. Selway also serves as Vice Rector of Most Holy Trinity Seminary.
Traditional Catholics may take comfort in the fact that there are dozens of traditional Catholic bishops and thousands of traditional Catholic priests to serve the needs of true Catholics, but they are, of course, independent of the anti-Catholic and heretical Newchurch of the New Order, currently headed by the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, who is currently enmeshed in a paedophile scandal. New traditional Catholic organizations independent of Newchurch are being formed every day, but most traditional Catholic priests prefer to serve the true Church without such organizational entanglements.
You've got to hand it to Newvatican. Its lies know no bounds. Even when Benedict-Ratzinger, 91, told his brother, with whom he is very close, that he was dying of a paralytic nerve disease, Newvatican had the gall to call his elder brother, Newmonsignor Georg Ratzinger, 94, a liar. Instead, you are supposed to believe the propaganda the Francis-Bergoglio's Marxist bureaucracy has shoveled out. The TRADITIO Fathers recently give you the true story in these Daily Commentaries.
According to Georg Ratzinger's statement on February 14, 2018, to the German language weekly magazine Neue Post, Benedict-Ratzinger's disease is paralyzing him. If the paralysis reaches his heart, he is a dead man. Benedict-Ratzinger himself admitted as much on February 7, 2018, to the Italian daily newspaper Corriere della Sera. Just hours after Georg Ratzinger told the world the truth, Francis-Bergoglio's Newvatican was trying to suppress the story, calling Georg a liar. No, Josef Ratzinger is fine, just feeling his age a little, says Newvatican.
True Catholics, at this point Francis-Bergoglio and his Newvatican can't be trusted in anything they say. The Associated Press recently caught Bergoglio in outright lies, when he claimed that he knew nothing about the paedophilia of his Newbishop appointee to Osorno, Chile, which has caused large public demonstrations against him and the condemnation of the Chilean government. AP unearthed two letters from Bergoglio that clearly contradicted his public lie that he was ignorant of the facts. Now Newvatican has the gall to claim that Benedict-Ratzinger's own brother lied about the ex-Newpope's statement to him that he had terminal nerve disease. The Modernist Marxists at Newvatican, including Bergoglio himself, are so immoral at this point they have lost all contact with reality and truth.
The truth is out now about Ray "Bully" Burke, the Newcardinal so beloved of Neocon and pseudo-traditionalist Newchurchers. Although Burke was a flagrant Modernist in his two posts in the United States, he fabricated a reputation for being "traditionalist," which those clueless Newchurchers were only too ready to buy. They loved the fact that he played dress-up with a red bridal-train. When he came out against Francis-Bergoglio's desire to see bigamists, adulterers, and those living in public sin to receive the phony Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid, the Neocons were ready to propose Burke for con-anization as a Unsaint while yet alive.
But now, for all his talk, Burke been outed as a fake. In fact, he has been exposed as an agent of the Marxist Newpope Bergoglio. Burke's task, it turns out, was to stifle opposition to Bergoglio by the Marxist strategem of endless bureaucratic delays. As long as the Neocon Newprelates could turn to Burke for leadership, they felt with relief that none of them had to lead a charge against the heretic in white.
And while Burke was using misdirection like a magician, Bergoglio was using Burke's engineered delays to appoint Marxist Newbishops and Newcardinals at a ferocious rate. Yet because of the dust-up on bigamists getting the Novus Ordo cookie via Bergoglio's infamous document Amoris laetitiae (The Joy of Sex), Bergoglio's Marxification of the Newepiscopate has gone virtually unnoticed. Burke's machinations to support the Marxist regime of Bergoglio are now exposed as spiritually noxious and evil.
The clueless Neocon Newchurchers buy this charade because they refuse to believe that they have been duped all along since the Vatican II Anti-Council of the 1960s. That realization is just too painful for them: to have been so wrong for so long. So they refuse to believe the truth. Living a lie feels better to them.
But now, after fifty years, the hand of Providence is clear. It's all over for Newchurch, but because the Titanic is large, it will sink gradually, until it reaches a certain point when it will plunge in a huge vortex all the way to the bottom. Newchurch prelates have just enough time to sell the buildings and collect the administrative fees for the sales so as to pad their offshore retirement accounts.
For most Newchurchers in the pews (in those newchurches that still have pews, that is), it's too late now to get out. They are intoxicated by the complexity of their leaders' verbosity. Just as a spider anaesthesises his victims with poison before he devours them, only a few Newchurchers might still be able to feel the cold water on their faces and dive into the deep where there are a few lifeboats staying bravely afloat, manned by independent traditional Catholic priests.
On February 10, 2018, the senior bishop of Archbishop Lefebvre's Society of St. Pius X, who abandoned Bernie Fellay's Novus Ordo-bent Neo-SSPX in 2012, stated that Francis-Bergoglio is now trying to destroy Fellay's pseudo-traditional group by dividing it from within. Already Fellay, it is reported, has promised that whoever is elected Superior-general in the July 2018 election will submit his election to Newrome for Bergoglio's approval. Archbishop Lefebvre must be turning over in his grave at the treachery!
Williamson posits that now Bergiglio is not trying to engineer a "wholesale surrender" of the Neo-SSPX to his Marxist Newchurch of the New Order, but is instead aiming at its "piecemeal division and disintegration." Bergoglio has already gone a long way toward succeeding in this goal. Well over one hundred Neo-SSPX priests have now abandoned Fellay and become independent traditional priests. As Williamson explains it, Bergoglio makes "repeated enticing offers, each of which divides [Fellay's] Society priests so that some break away, while Menzingen [Fellay's headquarters] gets up its hopes, only to see them dashed by another impossible demand of [New]rome."
True Catholics, Bishop Williamson concludes: "And the game will go on until the [Fellay's] Society is completely undone.... To plead for the Society's unity behind pro-[New]rome Menzingen is to plead for the Society's destruction!" And Williamson, from his personal experience with both the courageous Archbishop Lefebvre and the perfidious Bernie Fellay ought to know!
Francis "The Fake" Bergoglio is not loathe to call the child victims of his paedophile Newclergy "treasonous," but embraces their adult criminal rapists, his own Newchurch clergy. For fifty Sundays the Newchurchers of Guam have been marching to plead with Bergoglio to strip Newarchbishop Anthony Apuron of his title and office. Instead of standing with the children and his Guamanian Newchurchers, Bergoglio instead publicly embraced his criminal Newarchbishop in his Vatican Press on February 7, 2017, in photograph posted on Newvatican's official web site.
Bergoglio's despicable action came on the heels of his standing up for the Chilean Newbishop whom he appointed in spite of the fact that his own Newvatican court found the man guilty of numerous sex crimes and spirited him off to a monastery. One has to wonder what is going on in the twisted mind of Francis-Bergoglio.
Apuron is so hated by the Guamians for apparently sexually assaulting four altar boys at Novus Ordo Messes, and even his own nephew, that he hightailed it from Guam and hadn't been heard from in a year, until he showed up at the public kissy-kissy meeting with Bergoglio, who was publicly seen "affectionately" (to use the term in the Italian daily newspaper La Stampa) placing his right hand on Apuron's head in blessing and then clasping his hand.
True Catholics, Newarchbishop-paedophile Apuron was supposed to have been sentenced by a Newvatican tribunal in August 2017, but that deadline is long past. Instead, he has now been given the privilege of a tete-a-tete with Bergoglio. Apuron's own nephew has publicly stated that his Newarchbishop uncle sodomized him in the chancery bathroom he was just a teenage boy. Is Francis-Bergoglio in league with yet another one of his criminal Newprelates? Just what does a sodomized child have to do to get justice in Francis-Bergoglio's Hell of a Newchurch?
Although various Newchurchers have tried to cart Sheen's cadaver off from its resting place in St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City so that he could be made a Unsaint, Heaven and the Archbishop have apparently been against the charade. A February 6, 2018, court decision from the New York State Supreme Court's Appellate Division has refused to allow Sheen's cadaver to be disentombed from his resting-place to be moved to his native Peoria, Illinois, so that a Novus Ordo con-anization process could continue. As a result of the court's ruling, the phony con-anization process has been suspended. No Unsaint Fulton. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Court House News Service.]
True Catholics, it is as if Archbishop Fulton Sheen, noted Catholic orator and television figure of the 1950s, were reaching out his hand from the grave and saying, I want nothing to do with the Newchurch of the New Order! Sheen did fall into the Vatican II Anti-council's heresies for a few years and then started thinking better of his complicity in the heresy in the decade before his death in 1979 at age 84.
You may remember the recent TRADITIO Commentary that Newcardinal Reinhard Marx, President of the German Newbishops' Conference and member of Francis-Bergoglio's nine-member Steering Committee to govern Newchurch, has declared that Newchurch presbyters are free to "bless" sodomite unions, with official recognition of "gay" marriage apparently soon to follow. A recent claim by certain Neocon Newchurchers about Marx's new policy states that by denying the eternal teachings of the Catholic Church on sexual morality, Marx is creating a "new Church" that is not the Catholic Church and is breaking communion with the Catholic Church.
These Neocons are now belatedly accepting the terminology established by the TRADITIO Network many years ago. Ironically, the Neocons have not broken with the Newchurch that they themselves now call not the Catholic Church. The claim of the Neocon Newchurchers is false, of course, because the Newchurch to which Marx has already broken with the Catholic Church in 1964 during the Vatican II Anti-council. Marx is too late and too old to play the part of a hippie revolutionary bent on destroying the Catholic Church. That's already been done.
Moreover, because Newchurch is not Catholic, it follows that when someone claims to be "in communion with" Newchurch, that person ceases to be Catholic. All those who claim to be "in communion with" the anti-Catholic sect of Newchurch, currently run by the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, fail to qualify as Catholic.
There is a parallel case taken in the worldwide Anglican "Communion." The Episcopalian Church of Scotland now blesses sodomite couples. The other national churches in the Anglican Communion do not. However, because these other national churches claim to be "in communion with" the Scottish one, they too are implicated in sodomy, one of the four sins that cry out to Heaven for retribution.
In the perilous case of Newchurchers, the rest of us can only counsel them to cut themselves off from Newchurch immediately in order to protect their own souls. Anyone who accepts the false principles of Newchurch is not a Catholic. One might just as well worship bicycles.
What may emerge now is a schism between Newchurch and Newerchurch. The pusillanimous Protestantized Newchurchers may finally break from the pagan Bergoglian Newerchurchers. The Newchurchers may try to eject the Bergoglian Marx, but the Newerchurch radicals are so determined in places such as Germany that there will be a break of one sort or another, a fight over control of the money and the property. There's the rub: the Protestantized Newchurch and the emerging pagan Newerchurch will become little more than real estate empires. They will duke it out for control of the property, but both will go down in the process, as Newchurchers are leaving in droves, and Newerchurchers don't go to church in the first place.
The overall effect of this conflict is the reduction of the real Catholic Church to a remnant. So be it. Newchurch and Newerchurch get to fight, over the property, but traditional Catholics have the Faith and need to become comfortable with that reality.
The world is now used to Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio's heresies being spread across the news headlines. But this time the fake news that he has been railing against of late came from a hacker of Newvatican's web hub. Apparently, Bergoglio's web site is no more secure than his heretical doctrines. On February 9, 2018, Bergoglio's expensive communications hub was exposed as unsafe, when the news headline for the new web site of the Secretariat for Communication had emblazoned on its first page: "The Lord is an onion." At least that's better than the demented Newpope's really heretical doctrine: "The Lord is an atheist"!
At first, given Francis-Bergoglio's penchant for saying the most blasphemous things, readers did not do a double take at the headline. But then the egg-faced Newvatican admitted that its new communications hub, launched in December 2017, for which Bergoglio expended millions, had a "security flaw." In the future, readers will not be able to trust anything on the Newvatican site, as Bergoglio is often completely anti-Catholic and bizarre.
Moreover, Newvatican was so incompetent that the friendly hacker had to send no fewer than nine E-mails to the Secretariat to warn it to correct the hack. The hacker said that Newvatican "started ignoring my messages for weeks." The hacker finally threatened to go public if the hack were not corrected before February 7, 2018. Newvatican failed the security test, so the hacker went public, and now Bergoglio's expensive toy has been broken.
True Catholics, Newvatican, in addition to being anti-Catholic, heretical, blasphemous, and sacrilegious, is just plain silly. It's a wonder that a single Newchurcher takes its nonsense seriously -- or that of its heretical Newpope.
The Marxist Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio, who in a famous statement about the grievous sin of sodomy, publicly stated, "Who am I to judge?" is expected to con-anize in October 2018 the man who was widely believed to be a sodomite and, whatever the truth of that matter may be, was certainly the destroyer of the Catholic Church in 1964, when he created the Newchurch of the New Order to replace the Catholic Church by his signature on the Newchurch Constitution, Lumen gentium.
Montini also signed every one of the sixteen heretical documents of the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), stained with the Modernism, the heresy publicly condemned with the penalty of excommunication by Pope St. Pius X. Contrary to common belief, Pope John XXIII signed not a single one of the Anti-council's documents, but, according to the respected French journalist Jean Guitton, on his deathbed ordered, "Stop the Council!"
Newchurch under the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio has approved a "miracle" in order that Paul VI-Montini (1963-1978) can be New Order "con-anized" as a Unsaint of Newchurch. It is the height of irony that just as Newchurch is finally being exposed as the morally and doctrinally corrupt institution that it is, all of its corrupt leaders are being con-anized. Montini will join the First Paedophile Pope, the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla, under whom Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust broke out onto the world stage.
Since the centuries-old, careful, traditional process of canonization was thrown out in 1983 by JPII-Wojtyla, Newchurch has proceeded to go mad, making up "miracles" out of whole cloth. For example, the "miracle" of Theresa of Calcutta was denounced by her own physicians as a fraud. is. Thus, the Unsaints of Newchurch must be disregarded, as the Catholic Church's Universal Theologian, St. Thomas Aquinas, wisely provided for, teaching that such actions are not "infallible" -- let alone by a Newpope of a Newchurch.

True Catholics, the corrupt and anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order is desperate to appear legitimate in the face of mounting public evidence that since its foundation in 1964 under Paul VI-Montini, it was and continues to be a fraud, and certainly not the Catholic Church. Therefore, Newchurch has rushed through these con-anizations to make it appear as if their Newpopes were especially holy men, whereas in fact they were a congeries of homosexuals and paedophile accomplices -- not to say heretics, because the religion of Newchurch is heretical: doctrinally, morally, and sacramentally. It remains to be seen whether Newchurch will be so bold as to con-anize the moribund Benedict "The Nazi" Ratzinger, the Second Paedophile Newpope, who was forced to abdicate.
The Second Paedophile Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger, who ran Newchurch's paedophile operation as Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith (1981-2005) and as Newpope (2005-2013), announced on February 7, 2018, that he is near death. Ratzinger will be 91 on April 16, 2018.
Ratzinger was in charge of paedophilia committed by Newchurch presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals when Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust was first broke out onto the front pages of newspapers around the world in 2001. As Newpope, his record was even worse, if that were possible, and in 2013 he was forced to abdicate when the international press threatened that if he didn't come clean, it would publish reams of evidence of his complicity. At the time he was reported to be facing a nervous breakdown, unable to deal with the magnitude of his sins of complicity with his paedophile presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals against hundreds of thousands of child victims of sodomy, rape, and sexual assault.
"I am on a pilgrimage to the House [of Hades]," he wrote in a letter published in the Milan daily newspaper Corriere della Sera. Since his abdication Benedict-Ratzinger has been living under virtual house arrest in a compound in the Vatican Gardens. He is a lonely figure, often seen slumped on a park bench accompanied only by his cat. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Agence France-Presse.]
True Catholics, Scripture teaches us, "Magna est veritas, et praevalet" (1 Esdras 4:41/V). Recent developments indicate that Francis-Bergoglio is headed to the same ignominy as his two predecessors, as the Associated Press has recently exposed his lies concerning ignorance about a Newbishop whom he appointed with full knowledge of his paedophile complicity. It is just possible that now, half a century after the devastating Vatican II Anti-council, Our Lord is answering the prayers of traditional Catholics and has begun the purge of the phony Newchurch of the New Order, which replaced the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church in 1964 and destroyed the lives and faith of so many billions of once Catholics.
Francis-Bergoglio seems to be on a campaign against "fake news" lately, but on February 5, 2018, the Associated Press exposed Bergoglio himself as the faker. AP has been doing investigative reports on Bergoglio's support of paedophilia, particularly in Chile, where he appointed a paedophile Newbishop, Juan Barros, as Newbishop of Osorno, and outraged the Chilean President, the Chilean First Lady, the Chilean Congress, and large number of Chilean Newchurchers, who physically prevented the "installation" of Barros in the Newcathedral at Osorno.
As previously reported in these Daily Commentaries, AP uncovered a secret memorandum that Bergoglio had written to the Chilean Newbishops, in which he admitted that he knew full well Barros was a paedophile. Yet Bergoglio still appointed him as Newbishop of Osorno.
Now the Associated Press has uncovered the fact that Francis-Bergoglio had personally, via hand-delivery by the head of his only-partially-constituted Child Protection Commission, received a child victim's eight-page letter in 2015, which graphically detailed how a Chilean presbyter sexually assaulted him and how other Newchurch clergy ignored the crime. The letter that AP has uncovered puts to the lie Bergoglio's public insistence to the international press on January 19, 2018: "I haven't seen any [child victims], because they haven't come forward." To the contrary, the child victim's letter stated that Barros had personally witnessed these crimes and did nothing.
Bergoglio's feigned policy of "zero tolerance" toward paedophile presbyters and Newbishops, the truth of which the TRADITIO Network has challenged form the start, is now, five year later, being challenged by the Associated Press. Moreover, AP uncovered the fact that four members of the Committee meet with the head of Bergoglio's only-half-constituted Child Protection Commission, Newcardinal Sean O'Malley, to give him the letter and to ask him to hand-deliver it to Bergoglio. The Committee members said that O'Malley later confirmed to them that he had personally delivered the letter to Bergoglio.
It has thus become even clearer why O'Malley publicly condemned Francis-Bergoglio on January 20, 2018, when he called Bergoglio was "a source of great pain for survivors of sexual abuse," when Bergoglio lied in stating that the well-documented, credible charges against Barros were "calumny" and "lacked evidence."
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's contemptible, public lie could cost him his Newpapacy. Bergoglio, the Third Paedophile Newpope, in consequence, may as soon as Summer 2018 join the Second Paedophile Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger, the Second Paedophile Newpope, under house arrest at the ex-Newpopes' compound in Newvatican.
On February 3, 2018, Richard Williamson, former senior bishop of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre's SSPX and Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX, who abandoned Fellay in 2012 because of Fellay's Newchurch programme to sell out to Newchurch and who became the informal head bishop of the loose organization of some independent traditional priests known as "The Resistance," reported the "speculation" that Fellay will not run for a third twelve-year term at the July 2018 duodecennial Neo-SSPX elections. Instead, two Newchurch-approved puppet candidates will be put up, allegedly because the office of Superior General of the Neo-SSPX is not supposed to be held by a bishop.
That is a curious ploy because Archbishop Lefebvre enunciated the same principle, yet it did not stop Fellay from serving two full twelve-year terms (1994-2018), during which Fellay became a virtual Neo-SSPX Dictator. As reported previously in these Commentaries, the Neo-SSPX is expected to submit the results of the election for approval by the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio. This absolutely unprecedented procedure, very much contrary to Archbishop Lefebvre's founding principles for the original traditional Catholic SSPX, indicates clearly that Fellay's programme to sell out to the Modernist Newchurch is proceeding in quite deliberate fashion.
Thus, the face at the top may change, but the Controller will remain the same. Bishop Williamson also speculates that Fellay might be tapped to join Newchurch's "Ecclesia Dei" Commission hoax, whose purpose is to snatch up traditional groups and turn them to the "dark side" of the New Order. The Commission has already destroyed several pseudo-traditional groups and made them Novus Ordo under Protocol 1411 of 1999 -- groups such as the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), the Institute of Christ the King (ICR), and the Society of St. John Vianney (SSJV).
True Catholics, the Neocons and pseudo-traditionalists like Fellay & Co. may sell out to Francis-Bergoglio's heretical Newchurch of the New Order, but you can be sure that there are thousands of independent traditional Catholic priests around the world who will never sell out to the phony New Order sect, against which they reprise the cry, "Non serviam!
Actor James Caviezel, who played Jesus Christ in the highest-grossing religious film of all time, 2004's The Passion of the Christ, has announced that in 2018 he will return to the Bible-film genre to play the role of St. Luke the Evangelist in the film Paul, Apostle of Christ, produced by Sony and filmed in Malta. The film will open on Spy Wednesday of Holy Week 2018.
St. Luke is known primarily as an author of the Third Gospel, not for taking a prominent role in the Gospels. Caviezel said that to prepare for his role, he read the Acts of the Apostles, the fifth book of the New Testament, written by St. Luke, which describes the activities of the Apostles after the Ascension of Christ. St. Luke was a Greek physician, who left his wealthy lifestyle after he heard the Apostle of the Gentiles speak. St. Luke's Greek is the most literary of the books of the New Testament, and he was closely associated with St. Paul.

The President of Newchurch's German Bishops' Conference and one of the nine members of Francis-Bergoglio's nine-member Steering Committee to govern Newchurch, Newcardinal Reinhard Marx, has declared that Newchurch presbyters are free to "bless" sodomite unions, with official recognition of "gay" marriage apparently soon to follow. Individual presbyters can apply the new procedure in individual cases at their own whim. Marx succeeded to the office of Newarchbishop of Munich, which Josef Ratzinger abdicated when he left for Newrome, eventually to become Newpope of the Newchurch of the New Order, from which office he also abdicated.
The new policy, said Marx, is overtly derived from Francis-Bergoglio's heretical view of marriage, as developed in his March 19, 2017, document Amoris laetitia (Joy of Sex). Marx admitted that he considers sodomy a "fundamental orientation" emphasized by Bergoglio. Marx declared that such matters are not subject to "general regulations," even, apparently, God's, as according to Sacred Scripture sodomy is one of the Four Sins that Cry out to Heaven for Retribution.

True Catholics, has Newchurch gone mad? Yes. It was mad from the start. Its endemic heresies simply took fifty years to ripen into a completely Mad Hatter, Francis-Bergoglio, the Marxist Newpope, who, by his own words, hates (traditional) Catholics and loves atheists. What is more bizarre is that Newchurchers follow their mad leader around like witless slaves, including the Neocon Newchurchers and the pseudo-traditionalists like Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPXers.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I have heard it said that the late Bishop Fulton Sheen, noted Catholic apologist since the 1930s, wrote that if you want your children to fight for their Faith, send them to public school, but that if you want them to lose their Faith, send them to a Catholic school. Did Sheen really say that?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Yes, he did. While teaching at the Catholic University of America for nearly 25 years and dealing with students, he noted with deep concern what was happening in Catholic education and the fact that many young people were losing the Faith since Vatican II. His warning on higher education, given around 1967, was as prophetic as it was startling:
You are better off going to a state school where you will have the chance to fight for your Faith, than going to a modern Catholic university where you will have the new watered-down, Modernist version of the Faith spoon-fed to your unsuspecting minds, so that you will be apt to lose your Faith.
Sheen's recommendation applies even more strongly now, and to all grade levels, than it did in 1967, when the Newchurch of the New Order was just starting to take hold. Now, not only are most Newchurch schools academically inferior, but they pander the heretical, anti-Catholic and immoral teaching of Newchurch. Moreover, these Newchurch schools are undeniable risks to the safety of students because they are operated by paedophile Newchurch clergy and officials, who are supported by the paedophile Newpopes. Parents who send their children to Newchurch schools thus become accessories themselves to the moral crime of paedophilia.

Francis-Bergoglio has been losing the support of his Newcardinals right and left these days. First, there were the Newcardinals who split with Bergoglio on account of his heretical notions to admit bigamists and those living in public concubinage tothe Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid. Then, Newcardinal Sean O'Malley, of Boston, Massachusetts, who heads Beroglio's only-half-constituted Child Protection Commission, split with Bergoglio because of Bergoglio's calling the child victims of his paedophile Newbishop Juan Barros liars and terrorists.
On January 30, 2018, Chinese Newardinal Joseph Zen has split with Bergoglio over the issue of selling out the underground Novus Ordo Newchurch to the Communist Chinese government's Communist Patriotic Association. Zen is accusing Bergoglio of proposing to "undermine the sacrifice and fidelity of members of the underground Church in the country." Zen derided Bergoglio as "really naïve” and "ignorant of the Chinese communists," even though Bergoglio is widely regarded as a Marxist himself.
In past months, Bergoglio's Newvatican has been engaged in talks with leaders of China's Communist Party about bringing his Newchurch in China under the control of the Red Chinese government. The sellout being discussed would hand over a certain amount of decision-making power to the Chinese Communist government in the naming of Newbishops for Newchurch.
Yet Bergoglio's Novus Ordo presbyters and Newbishops, heretical as they are to true Catholicism, have faced imprisonment for their fidelity to the Newchurch of the New Order rather than submitting to the Communist Patriotic Association. Zen says that China's Communist rulers want “total surrender” from Bergoglio, and Bergoglio is well along the path to making that surrender.
Francis-Bergoglio shocked the world when he maintained that "in China the churches are full. You can practice your faith in China." To the contrary, it is well known that Novus Ordo presbyers, Newbishops, and laypeople are routinely punished, tortured, and even murdered. Newcardinal Zen has tried to educate Bergoglio about the situation in China, but Bergoglio refuses to answer his letters. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Breitbart News.]
True Catholics, each day Francis-Bergoglio goes further and further off the rails. Some are beginning to question his mind. He has an obligation to listen to the Newcardinals, who are legally his advisors. The fact that Bergoglio won't listen at all to his most experienced Newcardinal on Red China and yet will meet with the Communists every three months may simply indicate that Bergoglio is a dedicated Marxist operative himself, whose goal, as recent events show, is to try openly to destroy what little Catholicism is left in his anti-Catholic and heretical Newchurch of the New Order.
Actor James Caviezel confirmed in a January 29, 2018, interview with USA Today that Mel Gibson, who produced and directed The Passion of the Christ, is currently working on a sequel to the 2004 blockbuster, the highest-grossing religious film ever.
Caviezel said that he couldn't reveal details about the plans for the sequel, but indicated that he would be reprising the role of Jesus Christ and claimed that the new film "is going to be the biggest film in history; it's that good." An undisclosed shooting window has tentatively been set.
Gibson himself indicated in June 2016 that he was working on the sequel, which has the working title of The Resurrection. One focus of the film seems to be a dramatic development of the text from the Apostles Creed, Descendit ad inferos, perhaps to include "a little inferno."

In the twentieth century before the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), the Catholic school system was the pride of the Catholic Church in the United States. The Anti-council put an end to that by introducing fake Messes and "Sacraments" in place of the Traditional Latin Mass and Sacraments and substituted secular doctrine and morality for the Catholic ones. Little by little, Catholic schools became hardly better than most public schools and worse than most private schools. Vatican II virtually expelled religious sisters and brothers from the schools and turned them over to unqualified non-religious personnel.
Now the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops has been advised that in the last ten years (2007-2017), under the regimes of the Second Paedophile Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger and Francis-Bergoglio, one out of every five Newchurch schools in the United States has been shut down, as Newchurch parents yank protect their away from unordained paedophile Newchurch presbyters outed in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. Within a decade in the United States, Newchurch schools will be essentially dead.
Figures from the National Catholic [Sic] Educational Association show from 2007 to 2017 a net 1,106 closiing of Newchurch schools. During the same period, enrollment declined by some 20 per cent to 1,900,000 students, down 63 per cent from 5,200,000 at the time Vatican II Anti-council sat. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Service.]
True Catholics, even the unconsecrated Newchurch bishops had to admit: "Many parents don't see particular value in the religious formation that occurs in a Catholic [sic] school." They just don't get it; these Newbishops remain clueless. The problem is that these schools are not Catholic any more, and the parents know it. These schools are the purveyors of the heretical New Order sect that is now worse than the Protestant sects. Moreover, the parents know that if they send their children to a Newchurch school, the parents become potential accomplices to paedophilia, which continues to run rampant in the Newchurch of the New Order. More and more parents are realizing that morally they must pull their children out of danger and put them in the best charter or private schools -- or join the burgeoning homeschool movement.
Newchurch, with Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio at its helm, who proclaims, "Who am I to judge sodomy?," has now infiltrated the "Pro-life" movement with a Pro-sodomy agenda as well. One of Bergoglio's prime spokesman in this goal of pushing Newchurch toward acceptance of sodomy (LGBTQXYZ) as a normal, almost trivial thing, is one Presbyter James Martin, who is -- isn't this a surprise? -- a Marxist Newjesuit like Bergoglio. According to Biblical and Catholic teaching, sodomy is one of the Four Sins that Cry out to Heaven for Justice.
Moreover, on January 21, 2018, the Cardinal O’Connor Conference on Life at Georgetown University, where lesbian atheist Rosemary Geraghty led a session on "radical inclusivity," asserting that "pro-lifers," in order to be truly "pro-life," should use "preferred pronouns" for transgender and gender-ambiguous people, while being accepting of homosexuality. At the end of her presentation, she received a standing ovation from the "pro-lifers" at the "pro-life" conference at a pseudo-Catholic university (Georgetown in Washington, D.C. is notorious for its heretic teachings and conferences), followed by an invalid Mess simulated by a Newchurch bishop.
Three decades ago the "Pro-life" movement became anti-Catholic when it included in its "Pro-life" definition the goal of abolishing capital punishment, which the Catholic Church (but not the Newchurch of the New Order) considers moral in specific cases and which is countenanced, even encouraged, in Sacred Scripture, when justified to protect society.
True Catholics, we TRADITIO Fathers have always been skeptical of these secularized political movements, although they pose as religious. We know traditional Catholics some years ago who used to march in these political events, but stopped because they were tired of dealing with Newchurchers and Protestants who had no true moral foundation for what they were doing and held to the Modernist heresies of the New Order and Protestant sects. The highly-politicized "Pro-life" movement is just another way of luring Newchurchers into the secular fold. On an individual basis, one can morally work for anti-abortion laws, if they want, but because of the syncretism involved, condemned by the true Catholic Church, that is inherent in such movements touting "all religions are the same" and "we all worship the same god," we would recommend having nothing to do with the corrupted syncretistic, secular, political "Pro-life" movement.
