Canada was once a religious nation, particularly in the French Catholic area of Quebec Province. All that changed after the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), which introduced the Newchurch of the New Order with its invalid "New" Mess and pseudo-sacraments, new doctrine, and new morality. As if that weren't bad enough, Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust struck. As a result, Canadians have been walking out on Newchurch at an ever increasing rate.
Newchurchers' defections since Vatican II have risen so fast that on March 17, 2019, the Canadian Newbishops announced that they will close one-third of their Newchurchers, almost 9,000. The Newbishops plan more closures in the future. Most of the churches being demolished are the most traditional, historic, and beautiful, not the Modernistic monstrosities.
True Catholics, congregations in some of these churches had sunk to the point that their attendees could be counted on the fingers of two hands. Most traditional Catholic churches, chapels, and oratories, independent of Newchurch, number far more than this. Most of these traditional, historic, and beautiful, church buildings will be demolished. Some will be sold off for profit. Some of them will be turned into bars, restaurants, and other secular purposes. With the replacement of the "institutional" Catholic Church in 1964 by the vulgar Newchurch of the New Order, the great civilization of Rome and the Roman Catholic Church, which has inspired not only the West but also the entire world, is fast sinking into barbarism and another Dark Age.
Another high official of Francis-Bergoglio has been caught with is cassock down in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal. It was revealed, appropriately on the Ides of March (March 15 in the Gregorian calendar), that Bergoglio's Ambassador (Permanent Observer) to the United Nations (2010-2014), Newarchbishop Francis Chullikatt, embezzled Newchurch funds and used Newchurch staff for corrupt purposes, namely, to support his mistress, a Novus Ordo "virgin nun." Chullikatt also used Newvatican's telephone service for sexting to this woman, with whom he had liaisons at the U.N. in New York. When Chullikatt was in his drunken stupors, he cc'd some of these sexts by mistake to Newvatican officials, possibly even Bergoglio himself.
Following his own corrupt policy not to punish his officials for their crimes, Francis-Bergoglio allowed Chullikatt to get away with stealing the money from Newchurchers' pockets. Bergoglio, knowing of Chullikatt's embezzlement, did not demand the restitution required under Catholic Moral Theology. He did not even remove him from the Newvatican diplomatic corps, but simply to give him a "sabbatical" until the Chullikatt scandal quieted down, then "reassigned" him to a new diplomatic post half way around the world as Newpapal Nuncio to Kazakhstan, Tajikistan, and Kyrgyzstan. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
True Catholics, Newarchbishop-Ambassador Chullikatt's crimes have have raised the question about how Francis-Bergoglio's officers are handling money donated by Newchurchers thinking that it is going to religious purposes, not crime. No true Catholic can morally have anything to do with the Newchurch of the New Order, much less give it money, which the Chullikatt scandal shows is likely be used for criminal and immoral purposes.
The Newchurch of the New Order, in addition to being heretical and immoral, is bloated and inefficient. Newvatican's 2017 Church Statistics report, released on March 8, 2019, reveals that for the first time since 2010, the number of presbyters has decreased worldwide. That statistic means that there are no net positive "vocations" -- if it can be said that there are any "vocations" to an heretical presbyterate.
The report shows that the number of Newbishops rose and that the number of "lay deacons," a new group fabricated by the Vatican III Anti-council (1962-1965), increased. However, the number of presbyters decreased. Thus, Newchurches are closing right and left, and invalid Novus Ordo Messes are being canceled wholesale because no sane young man wants to be a presbyter of the New Order, unordained, but merely "installed" as a "presider" under the invalid New Ordinal of 1968, who functions exactly like a Protestant minister.
The report also shows that the so-called "Francis effect" was a hoax. Francis-Bergoglio's popularity for the few few months of his Newpontificate in 2013 has rapidly evaporated. In fact, it has been turned on its head into infamy, as he has been personally implicated as an accomplice in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Vatican News Service.]
True Catholics, the useless and overfunded queen bees of Newchurch, the Newbishops, are increasing while the worker bees, the presbyters, are decreasing. At the Vatican II Anti-council in 1962-1965, there were 2,860 bishops. In 2017, that number had almost doubled to 5,304. The rushing river of young men being ordained before the Vatican II Anti-council has, since the Newchurch takeover in 1964, turned into a dry riverbed. Newchurch is dying fast. Why would a young man want to give his life's work over to the anti-Catholic New Order fraud?
From Poland's Newchurch bishops on March 14, 2019, came the news that the "Unsaint" Newpope JPII-Wojtyla's Poland was a hotbed of paedophilia, with 382 presbyters and and 625 children involved. Newchurch leaders finally confessed the numbers in a country that before Newchurch was one of the leading Catholic countries in the world. And these numbers reflect crimes committed only since 1990, in the middle of Wojtyla's Newpontificate. No numbers from the inception of the Newchurch of the New Order in 1964 through 1989 were released.
Even more shocking was the information that the majority of the 382 presbyters had sexually assaulted children under the age of 15. A majority of the child victims too were under age 15. Another suprise was that 42 per cent of the child victims were not males, but females. 90 presbyters have been criminally convicted in the secular courts. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
True Catholics, the Polish Newbishops, contrary to justice and Catholic moral theology, refuse to compensate the child victims for their lifelong pain, suffering, and injuries at the hands of the New Order clergy. The Polish Newbishops claim that the paedophile crimes were committed by presbyters as individuals, not as representatives of the Newchurch. How immoral these Newbishops be! After all, they house, they feed, they pay the salaries of these corrupt presbyters. How, in God's name, can these deadbeat Newbishops claim that their own presbyters are not operating as representatives of the Newchurch?
Newchurch has still not come to grips with the reality that it is fast dying. The deceit of the anti-Catholic New Order Mess, sacraments, doctrine, and morality has been eating away at Newchurch for almost sixty years now. Is it any wonder that young men refuse to waste their lives in a Novus Ordo presbyterate that is not a valid priesthood, but worse than a Protestant ministry?
On March 13, 2019, Blase Cupich, Newcardinal of Chicago, Illinois, an intimate of Francis-Bergoglio, announced that St. Joseph College Seminary is being shut down because only 20 men in once great Catholic city are studying to become Novus Ordo presbyters. The board of the Newseminary was caught flatfooted by Cupich's abrupt showdown.
True Catholics, the corruption of Newchurch is finally hitting home to the formerly clueless Newchurchers. They are now waking to the fact that their Novus Ordo Mass and sacraments are invalid, their doctrine has been corrupted, and their morality is suitable only for a pig-sty. They -- and their money -- are shaking the dust off their shoes and leaving Newchurch at a face-paced rate that had not been foreseen. Newchurch leaders thought that they could get away with their deceits, crimes, and hoaxes and that Newchurchers would mindlessly obey them. The Newchurch leaders were wrong, as they now see the backs of their Newchurchers deserting them faster than a speeding bullet!
Newchurch presbyter John Capparelli was found in his Henderson, Nevada, home on March 12, 2019, shot with a single bullet to the neck. Police are treating the death as a homicide. Just one month previous, Capparelli's name had appeared in a list of presbyters "credibly accused" of sexually brutalizing children in the Newarchdiocese of Newark, New Jersey, during the 1980s and 1990s. He was also accused of running a "sex fetish" web site from his home.
Presbyter Capparelli was stationed at a number of locations in Newark, including one school. His actions were considered so serious that eventually he was one of the few the U.S. presbyters to be laicized ("defrocked") in 1992. He then went on to work as a Newark public school mathematics teacher, but his teaching license was suspended when students there accused him of sex crimes.
In 2016 he fled to Nevada and again resumed his association with young students as a tutor. It is possible that after his name appeared on the sex predators' list, he was hunted down by one of his former child victims and killed, execution style. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the New York Post.]
True Catholics, one of Capparelli's former child victims, upon hearing of the death of the perverted presbyter, remarked: "The world is a safer place without him." Capparelli had been allowed by the Newchurch archdiocese of Newark to continue his assaults on children, now in public schools, because the Newarchdiocese never publicly revealed his defrocking. Thus, he was able to secure jobs in the public sector. It wasn't until February 2019 that his name was published, and a month later he was shot dead, execution style. These Newchurch paedophiles need to watch out! If Francis-Bergoglio doesn't exact justice for the child victims, more of the children will take justice into their own hands.
On March 14, 2019, Newcardinal Godfried Danneels, Newarchbishop of Brussells, Belgium, passed to eternal judgment. He was an ordained priest, but was never consecrated as a bishop, merely "installed" under the invalid New Ordinal of 1968. He was about as radical a leftist heretic as Newchurch had. His fellow radical Marxist Francis-Bergoglio naturally praised him as a "zealous pastor." But what is the truth?
But worst of all was Daneel's active involvement with Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. He was charged with the cover-up of numerous sex crimes by his presbyters upon children. In 2010 Danneels was at the center of a national and Newchurch scandal when a recording was published of Danneels pressuring a child victim to remain silent about continuous rape of a child from age 5 to 18. The assaults were perpetrated by the child's uncle, Belgian Newbishop Roger Vangheluwe, who was so corrupt that he even boasted on French television about his rapes upon his nephew. However, Danneels, when personally informed of the crimes, refused to remove Vangheluwe. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
True Catholics, except that Danneels is no longer among the living, he could have joined the five Newcardinals so far exposed as paedophile criminals: Theodore McCarrick, Donald Wuerl, George Pell, Philippe Barbarin, and Ezzati Andrello. These five (and undoubtedly more Newcardinals to be exposed in the future) were predatory rapists and cover-up artists, whom the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla, the "Nazi" Benedict-Ratzinger, and the Marxist/Modernist Francis-Bergoglio were only too happy to shelter and protect while calling the child victims "liars." Now all the Newchurch heads are paying for their crimes as public opinion is horrified at their behavior, and Newchurchers themselves are abandoning the Newchurch of the New Order and its criminal Newpopes in droves.
On March 13, 2019, the noted Gallup Poll reported that more than one-third of U.S. Newchurchers are considering leaving Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order in the wake of the latest sex-crime wave in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, which has to date ensnared five Newcardinals. The Gallup poll found that 37 per cent of Newchurchers were considering leaving -- a substantial 68 per cent increase over the 22 per cent who were considering leaving in 2002, when the sex-crimes holocaust was first exposed in Boston, Massachusetts under the notorious Newcardinal Bernard Law.
The situation is more serious now, not only because of the 68 per cent increase in the number involved over 2002 but also because 22 per cent of those considering leaving are "core Newchurchers," i.e., those who attend the (invalid) New Order Mess weekly.
The so-called "Francis effect" has been turned on its head. Far from being admired by many Newchurchers, as he was at the beginning of his Newpontificate, Bergoglio is now despised as the chief engineer of Newchurch's paedophile crimes. Only 30 per cent of U.S. Newchurchers now have "a great deal" or "quite a lot" of confidence in Bergoglio and other Newchurch leaders, while almost an equal number had "very little" or "none." Only 31 per cent Newchurch presbyters and bishops are now regarded "highly" -- a precipitous drop of one-half since 2008. The number of Newchurchers in the United States has already dropped significantly -- 18 per cent since 2000. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
True Catholics, the United States in past years had been a money conduit to support Newvatican. Now the numbers of Novus Ordo Mess attendees has dropped significantly, and collections have become comparatively meagre. Already half of the Newchurches in the United States have been closed because of lack of financial support and presbyters. What moral Newchurcher would want to contribute his hard-earned money to crime? What sane young man would want to enter a life of corruption under the control of Newpopes and Newbishops who are more immoral than the Mafia?
The conviction, announced in March 2019, of Francis-Bergoglio's Chief Financial Officer (Secretary of the Economy), No. 3 Man at Newvatican, Newcardinal George Pell, in a Melbourne, Australia, court on charges of sex crimes against two "altar boys," sacrilegiously perpetrated in his own Newcathedral, has had a devastating effect upon Newchurch attendance in Australia.
To be sure, even before the Pell scandal, the Newchurchers were getting tired of the invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Mess of 1969 and deserting it in ever great numbers. In 1997, Mess attendance was down to 16 per cent of nominal Newchurchers. By 2006, that number had declined to 14 per cent. In 2011, that number had further declined to 12 per cent. New numbers are supposed to be released in 2019, and are expected to show an even greater drop in Newchurch attendance: one in ten or fewer.
At a recent Novus Ordo Mess at St. Patrick’s Church in Sydney, observers reported that there were just a dozen attendees, mostly elderly women. This number is far fewer than the attendance at traditional Catholic churches, chapels, and oratories. In addition to growing disgust for the Novus Ordo Mess, Pell's conviction for vile crimes against children has hardened distrust and anger among Newchurch in Australia and set the country's Newchurch onto an even more precipitous decline. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the New York Times.]
True Catholics, in the 1950s, 74 per cent of Catholics in Australia attended the Traditional Latin Mass weekly. But then, starting in the 1950s, Pius XII and his appointee Hannibal Bugnini, the Chief Architect of the New Order "Liturgy," started introducing radical changes into the once-Sacred Liturgy, including in 1956 the almost complete destruction of Holy Week, celebrating the most holy rites in the entire Roman Missal. It took Newchurchers quite a while to realize that the Vatican II Revolutionaries had destroyed their Catholic Mass and their Catholic Faith, but more and more Newchurchers are figuring the facts out and leaving. One researcher in Melbourne, where Newcardinal Pell served as Newcardinal-archbishop, predicted: "I’d say we’ve lost about two, possibly three, generations of young people, and now I think the situation is worsening. The older generation is following the young." The Newchurch of the New Order could be essentially dead within another generation.
Francis-Bergoglio's recent secret agreement with the Communist Chinese has been exposed as essentially forcing the "Underground" Newchurch, which had been persecuted for fighting the Communist government, into the arms of the very Communists that it had courageously fought. Terms of Bergoglio's sellout to Red China are now leaking out, and the upshot is that he is eliminating the anti-Communist Underground Newchurch in favor of the Communist-backed Chinese Patriotic "Catholic" Association. "The Underground Church must disappear" is the new Bergoglian policy.
Francis-Bergoglio had lifted the Novus Ordo excommunion of eleven previous Patriotic Association (Communist) bishops, and it now appears that it is these Newbishops who are spearheading the destruction of the anti-Communist Underground Church. The Patriotic Association is now proclaiming that the only way for "the Church to be united" is for the anti-Communist Newchurchers to become Communist. Already, Newchurchers under age 18 are forbidden to take part in any but the fake services of the Communist Newchurch-favored Patriotic Association. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Asia News.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio, now approaching his sixth year as Newpope, is increasing being exposed as a Marxist, even as a Communist. He seems perfectly comfortable selling out his Newchurch to the 1,400,000,000 Communists in Red China. Numerous Newcardinals, like Newcardinal Joseph Zen, of Hong King, and various Newvatican officials have called Bergoglio's pro-Communist policy out as folly and a promotion of atheism. Bergoglio himself has said that some of his best friends are atheists. The new joke going around is: What's worse than a paedophile Newpope? A Communist one!
McCarrick, Wuerl, Pell, Barbarin -- the list of Francis-Bergoglio's fallen Newcardinals just keeps adding up. Now Newcardinal Ricardo Ezzati Andrello is being added to that disreputable number. He is being sued for half a million U.S. dollars because he covered up a paedophile rape in his Newcathedral in Santiago, Chile. The rape was perpetrated by one of Andrello's presbyters, who is described as having "a practically out-of-control. homosexual lifestyle." One of the presbyter's "altar boys" presented photographs and videos of the presbyter having sex with eight other men, one of them a minor, in the Newcathedral.
The sodomite presbyter was formerly the Newarchiocesan chancellor, the No. 2 man, under Newcardinal Andrello. He was said to be "always surrounded by personal altar boys, young men from the middle and lower classes. The father of one of the boys had accused the presbyter of sexually assaulting his son. In 2011 a mother had come forward to accuse the presbyter of sex crimes against her 16-year-old son.
Although Newcardinal Andrello knew of these crimes, he let the paedophile presbyter operate for another year and at first tried to blow the boy off by calling him a liar. At that point to the present the presbyter has been only "temporary suspended from the ministry." The raped boy went directly to Andrello, who hugged him and arranged to try to buy him off with 50 dollars.
The child victim told the press that he had no interest in going to Newrome or meeting with Francis-Bergoglio. "The only thing I'm looking for is truth and justice," he said. "I believe that the only thing left to do is: Let justice be done, and let those who have abused and covered up these grave crimes pay with prison." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Crux News Service.]
True Catholics, an association of lay Newchurchers in Santiago is demanding that Newbishop Andrello be expelled. In fact, Andrello has twice sent Bergoglio his abdication, but the corrupt Newpope Francis-Bergoglio refuses to fire him, even as he badmouths Chilean Newbishops for committing the malfeasance for which Bergoglio himself is actually responsible. Most Newchurchers deliberately want to remain ignorant. They can't face the fact that their Newpope, their Newcardinals, their Newbishops, and their presbyters are criminals, Little by little, however, more and more Newchurchers are starting to see the truth and agitating for the expulsion of their criminal clergy. But it is too late. Now the Newchurch baby has to be thrown out with the dirty bathwater.
A Bountiful, Utah, public school teacher didn't know what hit her when she attempted to force a fourth-grader to remove the blessed Ashes from his forehead on Ash Wednesday, March 6, 2019. William McLeod said that "a lot of students" asked him to explain the cross marked in ashes upon his forehead, and he explained to them: "It’s the first day of Lent. It's Ash Wednesday." His teacher later approached him and forced him to wash off the cross. When the boy attempted to explain why he wanted to keep the ashen cross on his forehead, he said his teacher wouldn't listen.
When the school contacted the boy's grandmother, she read the school principal the riot act: “I asked her if she read the Constitution with the First Amendment, and she said, 'No.'" When Fox News went national with the story, the school district fell all over itself apologizing and initiated a disciplinary investigation against the bigoted teacher. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Fox News.]
True Catholics, fourth-grader William McLeod should put to shame those who claim to be Catholics and yet do not stand up for their Catholic Faith. As Psalm 8 puts it: "Out of the mouths of infants and sucklings thou hast perfected praise, because of thy enemies: that thou mayest destroy the enemy and the avenger" (v. 2/DRV). In the early Church, many children courageously accepted martyrdom for the Faith. Would that Catholic adults today had the same courage for the Faith as these children.
As Francis-Bergoglio whistles through the graveyard, his Newchurch of the New Order is sinking into a morass of corruption in its highest ranks. Certainly nothing like it has been seen since the time of the Protestant Revolt. On March 7, 2019, the fourth Newcardinal bit the dust. The Newarchbishop of Lyon, France, Philippe Barbarin, was convicted of a sex crime and abdicated. He joins Newcardinals Theodore McCarrick (USA), Donald Wuerl (USA), and George Pell (Australia) in ignominy and termination.
The court found Barbarin guilty of the crime of failing to report to authorities the paedophile sex crimes of a presbyter in his Newarchdiocese over the period June 2014 through July 2015. The presbyter had been functioning as a chaplain of Newchurch scouts and in that capacity had sexually assaulted more than 85 boys. Barbarin knew of his paedophile presbyter's crimes, but allowed him to remain in contact with children until the presbyter's July 2015 retirement. The presbyter had admitted his paedophile sex crimes and will stand trial in 2020. French authorities were going to drop the case, perhaps under pressure from Newchurch officials, but the voice of the child victims was raised so loudly for justice, that the prosecutor reconsidered and brought Barbarin to trial.
Barbarin didn't show up for the verdict, but five other Newarchdiocesan officials on trial with Barbarin were acquitted on the legal principle Respondeat superior, because they reported to him as their principal. This is the same legal principle upon which a number of Newchurch officials have called for Francis-Bergoglio's abdication, because he stands responsible for the paedophile sex crimes of his subordinate officials. The day after the verdict, Barbarin traveled to Newrome to abdicate personally to Francis-Bergoglio. Newcardinal Luis Ladaria Ferrer, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith was ordered to testify in the Barbarin case, but he begged off under the pretext of "diplomatic immunity." Ferrer was under suspicion as being complicit in failing to report the paedophile presbyter to French authorities. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
True Catholics, Newcardinal Barbarin's conviction and abdication continue to stun Newchurch in the United States, Ireland, Australia, Chile, Argentina, and Germany, among many other countries, as it becomes clearer and clearer that Newpope Francis-Bergoglio is actively running a morally corrupt organization. Bergoglio's Paedophile Summit, held February 21-15, 2019, failed to find a solution to the rampage of paedophilia in Newchurch since the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), and calls for Bergoglio's abdication have now come from the highest leadership in Newchurch.
Previously in these Daily Commentaries, we reported that the untraditional Fellay-Pagliarani Neo-SSPX had taken another step toward being subsumed within Francis-Bergoglio's Marxist/Modernist Newchurch of the New Order. In the United Kingdom, the Neo-SSPX sponsored and promoted a visit to one of its Neo-SSPX schools, St. Michael's in Hampshire, England, by none other than the Novus Ordo bishop of Portsmouth, Philip Egan. Neo-SSPX parents with children in the school were notified that on March 8, 2019, they would be "honored [sic] to receive the visit of our [sic] diocesan bishop."
Moreover, the parents of the students were strong-armed into returning "spiritual bouquets" for this Novus Ordo bishop. The bouquet card includes an heretical prayer that recognizes this heretic as "chosen as the shepherd to watch over Thy Church." The Neo-SSPX has allowed this invalid Newbishop, who has never been consecrated as a Catholic bishop, but merely "installed" in 2012 under the invalid New Ordinal of 1968, to visit what the parents were deceived by the Neo-SSPX into thinking was a traditional Catholic school, whereas it is in fact Novus Ordo associated.
A number of the students' parents have publicly called the Neo-SSPX's action to recognize this Novus Ordo bishop as a "scandal" and have expressed their outrage at being so deceived the Neo-SSPX. As a result, the Neo-SSPX district superior sent out a second letter to the school's staff and the students' parents. Brucciani admitted that "a number" of parents and staff had expressed "concern" about the visit of the Novus Ordo bishop to the school on March 8, 2019. Brucciani went on to reveal that the Neo-SSPX Superior General, Davide Pagliariani, the puppet of his predecessor, the infamous Bernie Fellay, had personally approved the visit.
Brucciani revealed that according to its "tradition" (his word), the Neo-SSPX recognizes the Novus Ordo bishop of the locality as its spiritual "father." Brucciani also revealed why Fellay, Pagliarani, and the rest of the Neo-SSPX are knuckling under to the Newchurch of the New Order. It is "a signal to Catholics who are on the path to discovering Catholic tradition that we are not the pariahs that we have been hitherto portrayed to be." So, it is all a matter of human regard; Neo-SSPX leaders don't want to stand up to being badmouthed for being Catholics!
True Catholics, Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, the founder of the original traditional Catholic Society of St. Pius X -- which is most certainly not the 1994 corrupted version under Bernie Fellay -- must be turning over in his grave. Far from "respecting" Newchurch authorities, the Archbishop publicly renounced them, including Newcardinal Josef Ratzinger (later calling himself Newpope Benedict XVI), whom the Archbishop pointedly called "not a Catholic." The Archbishop also rejected the heretic Newpope JPII-Wojtyla and proceeded with traditional Catholic episcopal consecrations without Wojtyla's spurious permission. The Archbishop died in 1991, more than twenty years before the Marxist/Modernist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio came onto the scene. One doesn't have to wonder what the courageous Archbishop would have said about that Marxist/Modernist Newpope!
Francis-Bergoglio has gone deaf again in His March 3, 2019, Angelus "homily," condemning those whom he describes as "presumptuous and hypocritical." He then goes on: "Before condemning others, we must look within ourselves." Bergoglio is always telling others what to do, but never follows his own dicta. Nor apparently does he read and apply Sacred Scripture to himself. St. Paul in his First Letter to the Corinthians (9:27/DRV) clearly understands this point and preaches what Bergoglio does not: "But I chastise my body, and bring it into subjection: lest perhaps, when I have preached to others, I myself should become a castaway [reprobate, hypocrite].
While Francis-Bergoglio preaches the Novus Ordo false "love" that does not correct sin for the edification of the sinner, he himself is publicly hateful toward his own people. He constantly badmouths his conservative Newcardinals, but rarely his paedophile Newcardinals. His favorite target, though, is traditional Catholics who hold to the true Mass, Sacraments, doctrine, and morality of the Catholic Church, which he rejects in favor of the Newchurch of the New Order, fabricated on November 21, 1964, at the Vatican II Anti-council to replace the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Zenit Religious News Service.]
He stays up nights, not praying the traditional Divine Office (which he rejects for the fake Novus Ordo "Liturgy of the Hours"), but thinking up more epithets with which to calumniate traditional Catholics. We have collected some 40 of the vile epithets that he has used in his "homilies":
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio is so blind that he quotes in his "homily" the Biblical verse that condemns him: "And why seest thou the mote in thy brother's eye: but the beam that is in thy own eye though considerest not?" (Luke 6:41/DRV). Bergoglio readily ignores the "motes," not to say, great sewers, of heresy, sacrilege, idolatry, paedophilia and other grave sins that he practices and encourages in others, but if a person dares to profess the Catholic Faith, the traditional one, that is, which is the only Catholic Faith, he finds innumerable "beams" to condemn. If that isn't hypocritical, the word has no meaning!
On March 3, 2019, traditional Bishop Richard Williamson gave an address, released to the internet, in which he predicted that "it's pretty certain -- it's hearsay for the moment, but it's pretty darn certain" that an (invalid) Swiss Novus Ordo Newbishop is going to be the principal "installer" of two virtual Newbishops for the Fellay-Pagliani Neo-SSPX. Vitus Huonder, who was never consecrated, but merely "installed" in 2007 under the invalid Protestantized New Ordinal of 1969, is supposed to be retiring on April 21, 2019, for free room and board, to a children's school operated by the Neo-SSPX. (Huonder's fakery has previously been covered in these Daily TRADITIO Commentaries.)
One of the man reported to be the subject of this fraud of being installed under Novus Ordo auspices is Christian Bouchancourt, just elected in July 2018 as First Assistant to Bernie Fellay's puppet, the new Neo-SSPX Superior General, Davide Pagliarani. Bouchancourt is anti-traditional; it is he who expelled the traditional priests in France that refused to consider a sellout to Newchurch. The second man has not yet been named. The sacrilege is to take place on April 28, 2018, the fake Feast of "Divine Mercy," the New Order's fabricated "oecumenical" feast, which was concocted by forging illiterate Sister Faustina's diary. (For further information on this topic, click on FAQ11: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Practices? in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics) department, in the section "'Divine Mercy' - A False Devotion.")
There will reportedly be two co-intallers, one of whom is expected to be one of the remaining three Neo-SSPX bishops, and the other of whom, another (invalid) Novus Ordo Newbishop.. This charade is reportedly going on with at least the tacit approval of the Marxist/Modernist Heretic Newpope Francis-Bergoglio. In his address Bishop Williamson calls Fellay and Pagliarani "naive" and "blind" in deliberately allowing the heretic Newchurch of the New Order to "establish a Trojan House" within the Neo-SSPX.
True Catholics, we TRADITIO Fathers have warned of the sellout of the Neo-SSPX since Fellay first publicly proposed it in the year 2000. The Neo-SSPX has already sold out to the heretic Newchurch of the New Order on the Sacraments of Penance (Confession) and Matrimony. The Neo-SSPX is reported to have introduced vulgar tongues at the altar in the Mass and to be using unordained Novus Ordo presbyters at some locations. This charade of installing two virtual Newbishops for the Neo-SSPX is the nail in the coffin. If the Williamson prediction turns out to be true, on April 28, 2019, Fellay-Pagliarani's Neo-SSPX (since 1994 it has not been the original traditional Catholic organization founded by traditional Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre) will become unquestionably a heretic Novus Ordo organization. Therefore, any true traditional Catholic Faith should have nothing to do with the Neo-SSPX.
On February 15, 2019, Newvatican admitted that Paris police were investigating Newbishop Luigi Ventura, Francis-Bergoglio's Apostolic Nuncio (Ambassador) to France, for criminal sexual assault against a young male staff member of the Paris mayor. The assault is reported to have occurred during a reception in connection the annual New Year address of the mayor. The reception includes diplomats, religious leaders, civil society members, and the Apostolic Nuncio. The charges were laid a few days after the incident, but were not made public until a little over a month later.
In 2009, the Second Paedophile Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger, appointed Ventura as Apostolic Nuncio to France, and the Third Paedophile Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio, kept him on. The charges against Ventura became public just before Bergoglio's Paedophile Summit on February 21-25, 2019, and became yet another stain on Bergoglio's white cassock, added to those of the paedophile Newcardinals Theodore McCarrick, Donald Wuerl, and other Newprelates of Bergoglio's corrupt regime. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Le Monde..]True Catholics, the First Paedophile Newpope, JPII-Wojtyla, tried to brush off Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust as an "oversexed American" phenomenon. That lie has subsequently been flushed down the Roman sewer as Newprelates from Australia, Germany, Italy, Argentina, Mexico, and many other countries around the world have been fingered week after week. In the United States, Newchurch is being investigated under the Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) act, under which the Mafia has been prosecuted and substantially suppressed. Deo favente, the same fate awaits the fraudulent Newchurch of the New Order.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
My wife and I pray the traditional Divine Office morning prayers each day together. One particular psalm in that Office confuses her, Psalm 52, in which verse 5 reads: "Shall not all the workers of iniquity know, who eat up my people as they eat bread?" Can you explain the meaning of this verse? It is the clause "as they eat bread" that confuses her.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
The traditional Divine Office is the best prayer next to the Mass, more so even than the Rosary, as the Divine Office is the official daily prayer of the Church from Apostolic times. Actually, the Mass is actually a part of the Divine Office, usually celebrated after the Hour of Terce, the third hour of the day, about 09:00. The Divine Office is pre-eminently instructive in that it forces us to think carefully about the many truths of the Faith that it teaches in its seven Hours.
In understanding the lessons of the Psalms, one must remember that the Psalms are part of the Old Testament and that Hebraic literature is particularly replete with figures of speech to make its points vivid. You have undoubtedly noticed many other such figures of speech in the Psalms that you have read. Our Lord commonly uses parables, which are figures of speech. The parables of the Good Samaritan and of the Prodigal Son are examples. Other examples are such vivid expressions as "the exterior darkness [where] there shall be weeping and gnashing of teeth" (Matthew 8:12/DRV).
Psalm 52:5 uses a figure of speech called a simile ("as they eat bread"), which is a vivid comparison that emphasizes the figure "eat up my people." This latter figure of speech is called a metaphor, as "eat up" is a verb that is used in a vivid, figurative way, not literally, to emphasize how much the workers of iniquity have tormented ("eaten up") the Hebrew people as easily and often as they eat their daily bread. Contrary to the error of the Protestant literalists, many things in Sacred Scripture are not to be interpreted literally, as, inter multos alios, St. Paul explains to us in his Epistles and as the Great Doctor St. Augustine specifically teaches.
While Francis-Bergoglio is turning his Newchurch of the New Order into a "gay" sect, the Methodists, Protestantism's second-largest sect in the United States, rejected this rejection of traditional Biblical teaching and has voted to ban "gay" clergy and "gay" marriage outright. On February 26, 2019, after three days of debate, the 800 clergy and lay members of the United Methodist Church at its worldwide conference voted to place a ban on "gay" clerics and the officiating of "gay" marriages. "Lesbians" are included in the ban. The Methodist sect determined that "gay" marriage and the installation of "gay" clergy "defied the word of God. The sect's president stated that "those who engage in the practice of homosexuality are not living a life that pleases God."
Moreover, the Methodists put teeth into their vote affirming Christian doctrine by voting to stiffen the punishment for heretics, i.e., clergy who officiate at "gay" marriages. Such heretics can be suspended without pay for a year and defrocked if they do it again. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by CBS News.]
True Catholics, it is ironic that the heretical Protestant Methodists stand by Christian doctrine, while Francis-Bergoglio has been not too subtly pushing a "gay" agenda for his Newchurch of the New Order. This he has done at the same time that Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust is taking down his New Order sect and is getting quite close to taking him down personally. Undoubtedly, the Methodists are "too traditional" for him.
Natacha Jaitt, a 41-year-old Buenos Aires investigative reporter and media personality, who was personally working to expose an international VIP paedophile sex ring, was scheduled to testify in just two weeks against Francis-Bergoglio's intimate friend, Gustavo Vera. Jaitt conducted an interview with an informant in April 2018 who claimed that an intimate of Francis-Bergoglio, named Gustavo Vera, was associated with the sex ring.
Jaitt was found dead on February 23, 2019, apparently a victim of foul play. Security cameras caught video of at least three men fleeing from the scene. The mother of two previously stated that she had received death threats and was raped. She was in fear for her life and publicly stated: “I will not commit suicide. I won’t be bought off or drown in a bathtub, nor will I shoot myself in the head. So, if that happens, IT WASN’T ME.”
Jaitt's family, shocked by her premature and mysterious death, is demanding a police investigation, as the family suspects murder. An investigation would undoubtedly look for any involvement by Francis-Bergoglio or his allies on behalf of his intimate. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Buenos Aires Times.]
True Catholics, the noose is tightening around Francis-Bergoglio's neck. He has admitted that his best friends are atheists, but so far he has not himself admitted the obvious fact that he is intimate with paedophiles. Shocking as it may sound, it is getting to the point that suspicions of his involvement even in murder is not out of the question. Bergoglio's putative predecessor, Pope Alexander VI (r. 1492-1503), was well known for murdering his enemies. Many historians say that Alexander VI was a significant cause of the Protestant Revolution that broke out within fourteen years after his immoral rule. In our time, Bergoglio seems to be having a similar destructive effect upon the Church and Catholic morals.
There are still some clueless pseudo-traditionalists who think that the New Latin Mess can find a home in Newchurch sites. This is the false principle of the JPII-Wojtyla's "Indult" groups or Benedict-Ratzinger's "Extraordinary" groups. It is the same false principle that is driving Fellay-Pagliarani's Neo-SSPX into the Marxist/Modernist Newchurch. Yet the history of such invalid services, going back to 1984, clearly indicates that from the beginning they were a hoax to draw people who wanted a smidgen of the "traditional" into the desperate arms of the heretical Newchurch of the New Order. Now we have yet another example of what Newchurch's true colors are. It hates "traditionalism," even a smidgen of it, and certain the Traditional Latin Mass.
Edwin Dwyer, of Our Lady of Peace Newparish, of Bay City, Michigan -- who was never ordained as a priest under the Sacrament of Holy Orders, but merely "installed" as a presbyter under the Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968 -- tried to introduce some Gregorian chant into his Novus Ordo Messes and to say the Sanctus and Agnus Dei in Latin. For that crime, the presbyter's Newbishop Walter Hurley removed him on January 30, 2019, from his Newparish and from his university chaplaincy because "he brought in a style of worship that many people found very difficult." Not even the Traditional Latin Mass, but a trifling few words in Latin and a few bars of Gregorian chant.
The problem is that nothing traditional can survive with the heretical Modernist New Order. Newchurch perceives the use of anything traditional to be divisive. Presbyter Dwyer's Newbishop, Walter Hurley, pontificates: “This is a serious concern in that our worship should draw us together, rather than divide.” (However, Hurley doesn't seem to think that Newchurch presbyters and Newbishops raping children is a "serious concern.") Hurley goes on: "It is important that we seek ways to unite the parish in our common mission of being evangelizing disciples and grow in our relationship with Christ, each in our own way.” (Hurley probably believes that "our own way" includes sodomy, fornication, adultery/bigamy, and paedophilia.) [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Catholic Herald.]
True Catholics, presbyter Dwyer is no traditionalist; he even degrades the Half New Order Vatican II New Latin Mess of 1962 (aka "Extraordinary"). He says: “I do not know how to offer [the New Latin Mess], and I do not see a pastoral advantage to learning it at the moment.” Dwyer essentially admitted that he was using a few "traditional" smidgens to lure the young into the New Order. It may have been harder to see the reality in 1984 when the "Indult" hoax was first concocted by JPII-Wojtyla, but now, 34 years later, pseudo-traditionalists have to be deaf, dumb, and blind to fall for the "Indult"/"Extraordinary" hoax!
On March 27, 2019, Newcardinal George Pell, personally appointed by and a personal "favorite" of Francis-Bergoglio was thrown into jail pending his March 13, 2019, sentencing on five sex crimes, including oral rape, against five children under the age of 16. The real question is why anyone should be shocked at this point. Only a blind and deaf person is by this time unaware that the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Newchurch of the New Order, founded in 1964 by the Vatican II Anti-council to replace the Catholic Church, is filled both high and low with paedophile criminals and those who support them, like Francis-Bergoglio. The Australian Catholic [Sic] Bishops Conference issued a press release that Pell's conviction "has shocked many across Australia and around the world, including the Catholic [Sic] Bishops of Australia." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Service.]
But why the feigned shock? These vicious crimes against children had been going on with the support of the Newchurch cover-up artists from the Newpopes on down for almost forty years, when in 2001 the Spotlight investigative team from the Boston Globe blew the lid off Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust by documenting the fact that Newcardinal Bernard Law, of Boston, was running a paedophile Newarchdiocese that had caused terror and suicide among the child victims and their families. After a little handwringing and nasty comments about "oversexed" Americans (from whom Newvatican was not, however, loathe to take the vast majority of its donations), Newchurch continued to cover up the crimes, by now rampant. When the Bostonian Newchurchers forced Law out, the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla was only too happy to give him a sinecure complete with a plush apartment suite and a lavish pension.
The Newpopes couldn't keep the cover-up of Newchurchers going indefinitely, however. There were too many victims who wanted the recompense due them under Catholic Moral Theology. More and more of the cases reached the newspapers and the internet. Eventually, the "Nazi" Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger, was exposed by the international press, and even his own long-time butler, as complicit in the illegal cover-up of sex crimes against children as young as six months. Ratzinger was forced out of the Newpapacy in 2013 before the full breadth of his complicity was exposed.
If anything, the new Newpope, the Marxist/Modernist Francis-Bergoglio, acted even more criminally than Ratzinger. He even denied to the international press aboard the Newpapal airplane that any children at all were being raped and sodomized. Over the six years of his Newpontificate, more and more calls came for his removal, even from members of the College of Newcardinals. So he called a "Paedophile Summit" in Newrome for February 21-24, 2019, with disappointing results: nothing but more words, no action. The press and the child victims called foul, and the anti-Bergoglio coverage in the world press outstripped the summit coverage itself.
Francis-Bergoglio needed to do something dramatic to show that he believed the now tens of thousands of child victims and that he was blazing with righteous indignation that even one child was sodomized by his Newclergy. He could have summoned the paedophile Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick to St. Peter's Archbasilica and there, on live television worldwide, stripped McCarrick naked of his clerical clothing and struck him with the rod of excommunication, banishing him henceforth from the Newchurch and driving him out of the society of all Newchurchers.
But, no, Francis-Bergoglio simply made two effete speeches at the Paedophile Summit. More vapid words, no action. It was Newcardinal Gerhart Muller, sitting to Berogliio's immediate left, who captured the headlines by publicly chastising Bergoglio and his regime for destroying records of paedophile presbyters, or not creating records in the first place. We TRADITIO Fathers renew our prediction that Bergoglio will be forced out of the Newpapacy by the end of 2019 or shortly thereafter and will join Benedict-Ratzinger in the ex-Newpopes Detention Center in the Vatican Gardens.
After almost two years of lies and support from Francis-Bergoglio, the conviction on five sex crimes against children perpetrated by Bergoglio's Chief Financial Officer (Secretary of the Economy), George Pell, was published on February 27, 2019, by a Melbourne, Australia, court. All of crimes involved children aged 13, two involved oral rape and three involved other sexual assaults, all while Pell was Newarchbishop of Melbourne. Official news of Pell's conviction spread around the world at just the time that Bergoglio was conducting his Paedophile Summit in Newrome, which failed to take any concrete action against rampant paedophile crimes among Newchurch clergy, of just the kind that Pell had perpetrated.
Newcardinal Pell held the Newarchbishoprics of Melbourne (1996-2001) and Sydney (2001-2014), until he was appointed by Francis-Bergoglio as the No. 3 official in Newvatican. His sentence could be as much as fifty years, and he is likely to die in prison. He will be sentenced on February 27, 2019. Pell joins Newcardinals Theodore McCarrick and Donald Wuerl, both of Washington, D.C., in being convicted or being named by a grand jury as committing sex crimes against children. Hundreds of other high Newchurch prelates, not to speak of thousands of Newchurch presbyters have been similarly convicted or charged with such crimes.
For more than two years since being charged with the crimes in June 2016, Newcardinal Pell had been protesting his innocence, calling the charges "a load of garbage and falsehood." Like so many Newchurch clergy caught with their cassocks down, Pell's statement turned out to be a bald-faced lie. For Catholics, Pell's crimes were even worse, if that were possible. He committed them in the sacristy of the Newcathedral while he was vested for the (fake) Novus Ordo Mess. Pell thus committed Moral Sins of Sacrilege. A Mortal Sin is one that destroys grace in the soul and destines its perpetrator to Hell. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Guardian..]
True Catholics, the equally corrupt Francis-Bergoglio has not issued a word of condemnation of Pell, but instead praised Pell for his "honesty and response to child sexual abuse." Bergoglio personally appointed Pell to "oversee Vatican finances and root out corruption," but it turned out that Pell was one of the major sources of that corruption. As the Roman satirist Juvenal famously asked: "Quis custodiet ipsos custodes?" In Newchurch it is the "guardians" who are the criminals. This category includes the three Newpopes: the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla, the "Nazi" Benedict-Ratzinger, and the "Marxist" Francis-Bergoglio.
