Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
There is so much confusion in Newchurch today. From what I have researched, it appears that some Neocons Newchurchers are claiming that the Pope is still Benedict-Ratzinger. But in addition to being a former Nazi, as he admitted in his own autobiography, isn't he a Modernist, who hold that heresy condemned by Pope St. Pius X?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
To hold that Benedict-Ratzinger is still Newpope is utterly folly. This position was originally advanced by a few Neocon Newchurchers, who are too cowardly to call the Newchurch of the New Order and all of its Newpopes what they are: not Catholic.
In their desperation these Neocons have tried to refashion Ratzinger as some kind of "traditionalist." In fact, Ratzinger was the "Father of Heretical Modernism" at the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965). He personally supported and introduced many heretical teachings into the documents of that anti-council. He is no more a Catholic than is his Newpope successor, Francis-Bergoglio.
Ratzinger was personally responsible for introducing the Oecumenical Heresy: we all worship the same god(s); all religions are equally true. This opinion was condemned as heretical Modernism by Pope St. Pius X. "Fr." Ratzinger, wearing a secular business suit, consorted with and was frequently photographed with characters silenced for heresy and excommunicated by pre-Vatican II popes. The most famous photograph shows Ratzinger in his business suit having beers with one of them, his bosom buddy, "Fr." Karl Rahner, a Newjesuit removed from his teaching position, silenced, and declared under suspicion of heresy by the Holy Office.
True Catholics should not look for specious "solutions" to the current situation in the Church. Nihil sub sole novum (Ecclesiastes 1:10/DRV), as Sacred Scripture teaches us. It has all happened before: excommunicated popes, deposed popes, popes who abandoned Rome, schismatic popes, heretic popes. No pope, even the Saint-popes, were gods. They are men, subject, according to Catholic theology, to all the sinful failings, the peccability, of men. Even Peter denied Christ three times under oath and was denounced by St. Paul before the Council of the Apostles for heresy. Maybe 20 per cent of the 275-odd popes were outright villains; about 70 per cent were poor, average, or good; and about 10 per cent were Saints.
Have faith that Christ will, in due time, take care of His Church, after He has completed the test that His Church is currently undergoing (and failing) and has completed the purge of the "vipers" (Matthew 3:7/DRV) that have taken over His Church. In the meantime, Catholic theology is crystal clear on what we ourselves must do: shun the heretics and treat their heretical acts as null and void. This is what the Church and its Saints have done since Apostolic times, as confirmed by the dogmatic First Vatican Council (1870).
Francis-Bergoglio, by his lawless decrees, is fomenting more and more resistance to his regime. On June 25, 2019, the Newchurch bishops of Scotland declared that it was not going to adopt Bergoglio's scandalous attempts to change the wording of the "Our Father" from its Biblical formulation. The Newbishops issued a press release that went to Scottish Television as well as to the Scottish Sun and Christian Today. They declared that Bergoglio has no authority to order them to change the prayer in the vulgar tongue.
The Newbishops of England and Wales joined their Scottish counterparts in declaring that they too would refuse to change the wording of the English "Our Father." Thus, the United Kingdom is unanimous in rejecting Francis-Bergoglio, with only Northern Ireland yet to be heard from. The Italian Newbishops adopted the novelty in May 2019, but many other national conferences have refused to make the change, which was detailed in a previous Daily Commentary from the Fathers. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by CNS News.]
True Catholics, it seems that more and more Newchurch bishops have had just about as much of Francis-Bergoglio's constant heretical notions as they can stomach. Now they are just saying NO! If enough of them have the guts to do so, Bergoglio's regime will be just as kaput as Benedict-Ratzinger's is. But the deposition of Bergoglio will not resolve the problem in Newchurch. Simply shifting personalities at the top will not change the heresy, immorality, and false Mess and sacraments, which are now embedded in the very soul of the Newchurch of the New Order, fabricated in 1964 by the Vatican II Anti-council. That resolution will be effected, in due course, perhaps taking many years, by the tens of thousands of the true (traditional) Catholic priests and bishops, churches, chapels, and oratories remaining around the world unattached to the heretical Newchurch.
For Francis-Bergoglio, the last fifty years since the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) haven't destroyed Catholicism enough in the Newchurch of the New Order. On June 21, 2019, at an "interreligious" conference in Naples, Italy, he denounced theologians for holding to doctrine and instead told them to embrace the (heresy of) Oecumenijsm ("we all worship the same god(s)"; "all religious are equally true"). Doctrine or dogma, i.e., correct thinking, Bergoglio deplores as "ideology."
It is clear that Francis-Bergoglio wants to strip his Newchurch, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church, of any Catholic doctrine and instead make it a secular socialist organization that he describes as a "field hospital." In the same vein, he hawks "mercy" without accountability. No contrition is required for offending God. This prattle is tantamount to heresy and certainly doesn't conform to what Our Lord teaches in Sacred Scripture.
Bergoglio went on to say that Sacred Tradition is a "mine," that is, a bomb of theological wisdom; which "cannot be applied mechanically to current questions." One can smell the stink of heresy in all of these statements. Already, on Corpus Christi, June 20, 2019, Bergoglio had uttered yet another heresy, that the Holy Eucharist is (mere) "bread." Actually, Bergoglio was speaking the truth without knowing it. because Newchurch has not had the valid Holy Eucharist since the New Ordinal of 1968 and the New Mess of 1969. Rather, Newchurch, like the Protestants, has invalid mere bread or, more accurately in many Newdioceses, cookies, adulterated with baking soda, salt, sugar, vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg.
Then Bergoglio confirmed his heretical teaching, in direct violation of Our Lord's words, that Catholics should not try to convert others in false religions: the Protestant heretics, the Mohammedan infidels, the pagan Hindus and Buddhists. All the courageous Catholic missionaries for centuries were not martyrs; they were fools, in Bergoglio's anti-Catholic head. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Crux News Service.]
True Catholics, there can be no doubt that Francis-Bergoglio is carrying out a calculated plan to destroy any remnant of Catholic doctrine in his Newchurch and even to change Sacred Scripture (the Bible) to accord with his heretical views. He has already changed some vernacular "translations" of the Lord's Prayer. In the 20th century Pope St. Pius X had to fight against the heresy of Modernism. Now Bergoglio has now gone beyond Modernist to Post-modernism, which believes in nothing: not morality, not tradition, not objective judgment, not right and wrong, not religion. That the Marxist Bergoglio has done so is not surprising in the least. What is surprising is that many who call themselves "Catholic" march in lock step with his apostasy.
History is repeating itself in so many ways now in Newchurch. Francis-Bergoglio is using a souped-up version of the Modernist deception, condemned by Pope St. Pius X, and used by the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) and its Modernist leader, Josef Ratzinger, later to become the Second Paedophile Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger. Newchurch is again afraid of a growing "traditionalist" backlash and is using Bergoglio's Marxist tactics -- which he learned well in Leftist Argentina and with the Marxist Newjesuits -- to silence even the insignificantly few presbyters in his Newchruch who dare to utter pitiful squeaks against one or another aspect of the New Order. These "traditionalist" presbyters are being consigned to the Marxist gulag, in this case, mental hospitals.
Although such commitments are illegal, even under Newchurch's own pathetic Newcanon Law, Newchurch has been using them to silence "Indult" presbyters under Benedict-Ratzinger's illegal 2007 Motu Proprio Summorum pontificum. The "psychiatric hospitals" used for this purpose are run by Newchurch itself and are substandard, what might legitimately be called "booby hatches." A similar fate has awaited some Novus Ordo presbyters who publicly decried immorality and corruption perpetrated by paedophile Newcardinals (e.g., Theodore McCarrick and Donald Wuerl), who, it has now been reported, were taking bribes.
There was a celebrated case in the years just after Vatican II of a group of nuns who were told that they had free choice to wear their traditional habits or a new Modernistic one. One nun quietly continued to wear her traditional habit. Newchurch, instead of abiding by its word, mercilessly persecuted the poor nun. But the nun didn't do what she was expected to do: shut up and wear the new habit. She went public and caused embarrassment to Newchurch, which, of course, could not put up with her courage. So they connived to have her committed to a mental institution. Even then she didn't remain silent and fought back. There are few, if any, Newchurch "nuns" now who will fight for what is Catholic against the immoral anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic Citizens News Service.]
True Catholics, it was bad in the 1960s when the Modernist Conciliar leader Joseph Ratzinger applied his experience in the Nazi Hitler-Jugend to his long term as the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla's No. 2 (1981-2005) and then Newpope in his own right (2005-2013). Now Newchurch has shifted from the Nazi to the Marxist, Francis-Bergoglio. Newchurch is an anti-Catholic and immoral organization, with which no true Catholic can have anything whatever to do.
Before the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), Mexico was a very Catholic country. Devotion to the Blessed Virgin Mary was particularly prevalent, as was a devotion to the Holy Souls in Purgatory. Now, disgusted with Francis-Bergoglio's paedophile Newclergy, Mexicans are attacking, vandalizing, and destroying some 25 Newchurches there every month.
The violence against Novus Ordo churches is not the only way in which Mexicans are expressing their hatred of Francis-Bergoglio Newchurch. Since 2006, fifty presbyters of the New Order (which has not ordained priests since the Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968) have been killed by Mexicans. Eight were killed in the last year (2018) alone. Four out of five of the perpetrators have gotten off scot free. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Agencia Fides.]
True Catholics, so hated has Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch become that violence is becoming common against its churches and ministers (there are no priests in Newchurch). It is not only in Latin America, where whole countries' clergy are involved in paedophile crimes, which are just now starting to be prosecuted by secular authorities -- but not by Bergoglio. In once-Catholic Europe too, churches are being vandalized and destroyed in large numbers, as in France, for example. It has not yet been proven that the destruction of Notre Dame Cathedral was not the result of an arsonist hostile to Newchurch.
On June 17, 2019, Francis-Bergoglio's Newvatican issued a document that lays the foundation for overturning Sacred Tradition. Bergoglio wants to move to "elders" (like the Mormons) and pagan priestesses for the jungles of Brazil, and thence to the entire world, for his anti-Catholic New Order sect. The Catholic Church has done without pagan priestesses for 2,000 years and has grown miraculously. It is only in the last fifty years after the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) that blasphemous changes to Catholic doctrine and practice have been introduced and are well on their way to killing the heretical Newchurch of the New Order.
The 45-page document is the child of the Vatican II Anti-council, rambling on using lies, half-truths, and worse-than-Protestant theology against Catholic doctrine and practice. And all because -- so the excuse is -- true Catholicism "excludes and alienates" aborigines. Francis-Bergoglio claims to be concerned about depriving these aborigines of the "sacraments" in remote areas. But Newchurch has no sacraments! It did away with them in the late 1960s and early 1970s, and replaced them with Protestantized "initiations" instead of baptisms, presbyters instead of priests, cookies instead of the Most Holy Eucharist, and "reconciliation" instead of Confession. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Catholic Herald.]
True Catholics, the heretic Newpope Francis-Bergoglio embraces, among all his other heresies, that of "inculturation," which was introduced into the Vatican II Anti-council by the Modernist heretics, so vehemently condemned by Pope St. Pius X. "Inculturation" is the heretical principle that denies the unity of the Church by allowing fake Messes to be made up for each local culture, in the local vulgar tongue, and with local profane music. If the Church is not "one, holy, catholic, and aposstolic," it isn't the Church. Now there is no doubt: Newchurch is most certainly not the Catholic Church. It is a fake.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
It was only four years ago that I found out that the true Catholic Church still existed at traditional Catholic sites and with traditional Catholic priests and bishops. I just started my fifth year of being back in the true Church, thanks be to God!
Now that the Newchurch of the New Order seems to be headed for the trash bin of history, loaded with sodomites and desecrated beyond redemption, do you think that it is time to move forward now to organize and elect a true pope outside recognition or approbation from the heretics in Newrome? After all, they are not Catholics. They merely like to play dress-up as if they were, merely in order to retain money and power from the remaining clueless Newchurchers. It is a tragedy that the true Church has had stolen from it all its sites, its resources, and its name. Isn't it time now to start looking away from the frauds, thieves, and perverts instead of looking with longing upon a city that is lost.
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
Your own personal experience proves why we need to keep covering what is going on in Newchurch, which all too many still erroneously think is the Catholic Church. Every Sunday we still meet Novus Ordo visitors to Mass who are still completely clueless about what is going on in their own Newchurch. They are like you five years ago. You yourself were converted to the true Catholic Faith, but you have to be patient in realizing that many still need to get there and need to be instructed why they need to get there.
The Church is Christ's. Therefore, we have to be patient and let Him separate the sheep from the goats. This will take time. In the Great Arian Heresy of the fourth century, it took over a century to resolve. In the Great Western Schism of the fourteenth century, it took the better part of a century. This century is our own period of test, which cannot be rushed. Just as God made the Jews wander forty years in the desert because they were not ready for the Covenant, so a new pope is not the solution, as in the Great Schism there were three popes. At this point rushing into some imprudent, even illicit and invalid, purported election of a new pope would do more harm than good. The real problem is ultimately not one of false clergy at the top, but of faithless laypeople at the bottom.
Catholics, that is, traditional Catholics, are not fighting for the true Catholic Faith. There are tens of thousands of Traditional Latin Mass sites around the world, yet where are all the traditional Catholics that should be participating in them? Half-committed Neocons even retreat into sellouts to the New Order sect, like the Fellay-Pagliarani Neo-SSPX or the far worse Fraternity of St. Peter. In the Great Arian heresy, laypeople were instrumental in bringing back the true Church. No less an authority than the Great Doctor of the Church, St. Jerome, told us that maybe one in every five bishops refused to join the heresy and fought for orthodoxy.
Why should we expect the favor of God in our troubled century when we do not use the resources that He has given us to fight for His true Faith in ourselves and to convert others? No, we are not ready, not by a long shot. We have not passed God's test of our time yet. In fact, we seem to be failing it miserably. Now is rather the time for us to study and practice our Faith with zeal and thereby earn the favor of God, Who will resolve these transient problems in due course sub specie aeternitatis. To paraphrase William Shakespeare: The fault is not in Newpopes, but in ourselves, who have allowed the Church to fall so low without much lifting a finger.
The noose around Francis-Bergoglio is tightening. His "favorite," Newbishop Gustavo Zanchetta, of Orn, Argentina, was charged on June 6, 2019, and will stand trial there for crimes of sexually assaulting two young seminarians. Bergoglio had been Newchurch's archbishop of Buenos Aires, Argentina, from 1998 to 2013, when he was elected Newpope. Zanchetta has been barred from fleeing justice to Newrome; thus, Bergoglio cannot spirit him off with diplomatic immunity, as he has done with others of his Newprelate criminals. Zanchetta will also undergo a court-ordered psychological examination. He faces between three and ten years in prison.
The best defense that Zanchetta could come up with is that he had been framed by people who did not support Francis-Bergoglio! Zanchetta has been an intimate of Bergoglio for years, and one of Bergoglio's first acts as Newpope was to appoint him as a Bishop of the New Order. When Zanchetta was forced out of his bishopric by his people, Bergoglio created a new position for him at Newvatican. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio was twice caught in public lying for his "favorite." He claimed that he did not know about Zanchetta's crimes until 2018. Yet the second in command at Orn, Vicar General Juan Manzano, stated that he had filed two complaints against Zanchetta, in 2015 and 2017, for retaining pornographic images on his cell phone, including "selfies" of his naked self. Zanchetta had also been reported in 2016 for deviant behavior: entering the rooms of young seminarians at night, requesting "massages" from them, and becoming intoxicated with them. Yet the paedophile Newpope did nothing but show favor to his immoral Newbishop intimate, just as did paedophile Newpope predecessors JPII-Wojtyla and Benedict-Ratzinger in similar cases.
Reports were circulating around the world that Benedict-Ratzinger, the Second Paedophile Newpope, aged 92, had suffered an apoplexy on June 18, 2019. Francis-Bergoglio immediately had a press release sent out denying the report. Curiously, Bergoglio had admitted: "I take his hand and get him to talk. He speaks little, slowly." That in itself could indicate stroke.
Newvatican does not have good record for telling the truth. Take the case of the death of the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla. In the week before his death, Newvatican was reporting that he was saying Mess in his bedroom. Later, when the official Acta Apostolicae Sedis came out with the Newpapal physician's report, this statement was proven to be a lie. Wojtyla was in a coma with a fever of 40 degrees Celsius, suffering from septicemia throughout his body. Then there was the lie about the Newpapal ring that "disappeared" for two weeks. Somehow the unconscious and dead Newpope had sealed the appointments of two dozen Newbishops!
True Catholics, on the basis of past experience, when a Newpope issues a denial, particularly so quickly, what he is denying usually turns out to be true. Francis-Bergoglio is so slow to respond to anything off his Marxist/Modernist radar that one has to question whether his quick denial about Benedict-Ratzinger is true or just another lie just like so many others that he has told about his paedophilia holocaust and so many other things heretofore.
As Francis-Bergoglio's suppression in June 2019 of the Mess of 1962 in the Knights of Malta, the Little Sisters of Mary,and other "conservative" Newchurch groups, it has now become undeniable that changes of the 1950s were merely the first salvos against Catholic tradition. They were launched by the heretical Modernists for the purpose of destroying the Catholic faith, morals, and tradition. Although the Missals of 1956 and 1962 are not per se invalid, they are anti-traditional and anti-Catholic -- the camel's nose under the tent, so to speak.
However, most 1962 Messes are in fact invalid because they are being simulated by presbyters who have never been ordained, but merely installed under the invalid Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968. Or they are being simulated by presbyters (such as those in the "indult" groups like the Fraternity of St. Peter) who may have been ordained in the previous, valid traditional Ordinal, but by unconsecrated (fake), Novus Ordo bishops.
Starting in 1951, the first changes of the Freemason presbyter Hannibal "the Barbarian" Bugnini were introduced, who poisoned the Mass by numerous Modernistic changes, including gutting the most sacred week of the entire year, Holy Week. Bugnini's changes, incorporated into the 1962 Mess, were admittedly intended to hatch a Liturgical Revolution, whose purpose, as Bugnini wrote in his La Riforma Liturgia, was to turn the Catholic Mass into a Protestant service and to turn Catholics into Protestant worshippers.
In 1970, when Archbishop Lefebvre founded the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), he first merely continued the 1962 Mess as he found it. Few at that time fully realized that the 1962 Mess had been dangerously compromised. The Archbishop apparently acted in good faith, but 2019 is not 1971, or even 1982. We must be honest in our assessments today and hold fast to the Traditional Catholic Liturgy of the Roman Rite as it was before the Liturgical Revolutionaries put their heretical and vile hands to it. The Archbishop did, however, smell a rat in the 1962 Mess. He forbad the SSPX to drop the Confiteor of the congregation, which corrupted the dogmatic distinction between the Communion of the priest, necessary to complete the valid Sacrifice, and the non-essential "Communion of the people." His biographer writes that in the three years before his death, the Archbishop was laying plans for the SSPX to return to a pre-1962 form of the Mass.
Now is the time for real Catholics, who call themselves traditional, to embrace or continue to embrace the true Mass as it was before the 1951-1962 corruptions. It is obvious now that those who adhere to the Half New Order Vatican II Mess of 1962 will find that this Mess will be forcibly changed again, and again, and again, and always in the direction of the false secular and pagan revolution of the heretic Modernists. That is why the Newpopes force pseudo-traditional Newchurchers to use only the corrupted 1962 Mess. True Catholics, however, must not compromise with truth. Those who are not with Our Lord are immediately, or else ultimately, against Him.
Newarchbishop Carlo Vigano, Francis-Bergoglio's former Nuncio (Ambassador) from Newvatican to Washington, D.C., has "done dark," and, so far, Bergoglio's hit men have not been able to find him. He knows where the skeletons are buried, and in several very public Memoranda, Vigano documented Bergoglio's personal involvement in Newchurch's ongoing paedophile holocaust and called on the Newpope to abdicate immediately. Much of Vigano's information has been independently confirmed.
Newarchbishop Vigano has been blistering in his criticism of Francis-Bergoglio, accusing him of “blatantly lying to the whole world to cover up his wicked deeds.” Bergoglio at first remained silent, but eventually he went public in his assertion that he knew "nothing, absolutely nothing" about the paedophile rampages of his Newcardinal favorite Theodore McCarrick. That statement has been confirmed as a lie by those who personally had informed Bergoglio about McCarrick's predations of boys and young Newseminarians over decades on the East Coast of the United States.
In an interview with the Washington Post by letter, published on June 10, 2019, Ambassador Vigano confirmed that he had personally told Bergoglio that McCarrick had “corrupted generations of seminarians and p[resbyters].” Vigano charged that Bergoglio is covering up other cases, as he did for McCarrick. One of these cases is that of Newcardinal Donald Wuerl, whose involvement in a paedophile ring was documented in a 2018 Pennsylvania Grand Jury Report. Wuerl, under fire from Newchurchers in the United States, abdicated as Newarchbishop of Washington, D.C., in October 2018. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Washington Post.]
True Catholics, Vigano indicated that Benedict-Ratzinger and "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla were also involved and that he has documents to prove it, which will be released in due course. No wonder Francis-Bergoglio wants Vigano dispatched!
After the documentary "Tell No One" went viral on YouTube, conservative Poland and its Newchurchers are in a rage against Newchurch and Francis-Bergoglio. The documentary investigates sex crimes by Newchurch presbyters and Newbishops against Poland's children. The documentary seems to have provoked in Poland the high level of rage that occurred in the United States when the Boston Globe's 2002 Spotlight investigation revealed that Newcardinal Bernard Law was running a rampant paedophile operation with his Newclergy in Boston, Massachusetts.
As a result of the "Tell No One" documentary, Polish authorities have been inundated with accusations from children who say that they were sexually assaulted, raped, and sodomized by Newchurch clergy. Polish Newchurchers, as well as many others around the world, are denouncing Francis-Bergoglio for his carefully-staged "Summit" in February 2019, in which he vowed to end a "plague" of sex crimes against children and adults by his Newclergy, but offered few specifics. He has since been excoriated around the world as "all talk and no action." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
True Catholics, a new backlash is rising against Francis-Bergoglio and his Newchurch of the New Order. In Ireland, a governmental investigation has essentially expelled Newchurch from Ireland. In the United States, many state Attorneys General have launched investigations of Newchurch crimes and have started to identify paedophile Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters by name in their reports to the public. In Australia, a Royal Commission was summoned to conduct an inquiry which led to the trial and conviction in December 2018 of Bergoglio's Chief Financial Officer, Newcardinal George Pell. Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust continues to rage unabated.
Just as we TRADITIO Fathers had predicted after the April 15, 2019, fire that destroyed most of the twelfth-century Notre Dame Cathedral, the promise that French President Emmanuel Macron made to the world that the cathedral would be rebuilt as it was will apparently not be kept. Now Macron is calling for "an inventive reconstruction." Leftists in the French parliament have been pushing for a "modern aesthetic." The rebuilding has become, as predicted, a war between traditionalists and modernists.
One ghastly notion being circulated is that of creating a very large glass skylight, something like a New-Age electronic advertising billboard. Some architectural firms have been proposing wild (sauvage) plans, including the construction of a public swimming pool on the cathedral’s rooftop. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Guardian.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio and Newchurch, which has exclusive use of the property, have made barely a peep to save the historic structure. In highly secularized France, once called La fille aînée de l’Église (the eldest daughter of the Church) from its conversion to Catholicism under King Clovis I in 841, Newchurchers now number only two per cent of Frenchmen. The New Order sect has announced, not even a Traditional Latin Mass, but a Novus Ordo Mess, to take place in a side chapel of the gutted cathedral on June 15, 2019, which a mere twenty Newchurch prelates will attend. Francis-Bergoglio is to be conspicuously absent.
Like the Newpopes before him, Francis-Bergoglio has given full-throated support to the Charismatic Movement, an heretical movement that is worse than Protestant as it is also pagan. Bergoglio addressed the movement in Newvatican on June 8, 2019, where the Charismatic zealots were meeting.
Charismaticism is a particularly virulent modern-day mania infecting the Church of the New Order, which has its roots deep in heresy. In the late 17th century, the beginnings of Charismaticism can already be seen as a derivative of the Protestant heresy. The Charismatics specially emphasized emotional feeling rather than reason. They pushed "individual, personal experience" of Christ outside of Christ's Church, much like the modern Protestant Evangelicals and Pentecostals, who talk about a "personal experience of Christ," by which they refer to an over-emotionalized, highly personalized attitude that overrides true belief. A typical charismatic prayer meeting includes music, singing or praying in tongues, healing sessions, prophesying, and body prayer. (For further information on this topic, click on FAQ10: How Do You Explain These Traditional Catholic Beliefs? in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics) department, in the section "Charismatic Movement.")
Charismaticism caught on among New Order sectarians who were searching for new ways of praying during the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965). The Charismatic Movement is associated with such other cult-like, mind-controlling organizations and programmes as the Confraternity of Christian Doctrine (CCD, which was perfectly traditional before Vatican II, but afterwards was corrupted), Taize, "Oecumenism," Marriage Encounter, the Rite of Christian Initiation for Adults (RCIA), Renew, Focolare, Cursillo, Neo-Catechumenal Way, Legionnaires of Christ/Regnum Christi, Communion and Liberation, Miles Jesu, Wicca (Gaia), Life Teen, and other such sects. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Vatican News Service.]
True Catholics, Christ already made things new by replacing the Hebrew temple with the Christian Church, together with the True Mass and Sacraments, by replacing the Old Covenant with the New Covenant. But how would a man like Francis-Bergoglio, who dares to think that he can play God by changing the words of Scripture (the Pater Noster) understand what true Catholicism is?
The U.S. Conference of Catholic [sic] Bishops has voted to align itself with Francis-Bergoglio's anti-Biblical position against the death penalty, a penalty that is approved in both Old and New Testament teaching. Newpope JPII-Wojtyla had tried to incorporate the anti-Biblical teaching in his Newcatehcism of 1993, but faced a storm of resistance, mostly from his Newchurch laity, so he finally recanted his error. Now it is Francis-Bergoglio who is trying to play God by changing the Biblical teaching.
On June 13, 2018, only 8 out of 204 U.S. Newbishops stood by the Biblical approval. The rest capitulated to the heretical Newpope's attempt to change Sacred Scripture, just as he had attempted to change the Lord's Prayer the preceding week. Bergoglio's change hasn't even been officially published for Newchurchers, but the U.S. Newbishops barreled ahead to change their U.S. Catechism for Adults. Like the Marxist/Modernist that he is, Francis-Bergoglio couched his teaching in sociological, not religious, terms, referring to the "irreducible dignity of all people, even those accused of terrible crimes."
In opposition to Francis-Bergoglio, the teaching of the Catholic Church from the earliest centuries, as represented, e.g., in the writings of St. Augustine, St. Thomas Aquinas, and St. Alphonsus Liguori, all Doctors of the Church, as well as in the Encyclical Casti conubii of Pope Pius XI and in Ce premier congress of Pope Pius XII, is that society has the authority to inflict punishments upon its members, and even to deprive a criminal of his life, for the necessity of the common good: (1) primarily, to vindicate the moral order and expiate the crime, (2) secondarily, to defend itself, (3) to deter other would-be offenders, and (4) to reform the criminal or deter future crime. The Roman Catechism of the dogmatic Council of Trent, principally authored by St. Charles Borromeo, represented the perennial teaching of the Church as follows:
This prohibition [of killing] does not apply to the civil magistrate, to whom is entrusted the power of life and death, by the legal and judicious exercise of which he punishes the guilty and protects the innocent. The use of the civil sword, when wielded by the hand of justice, far from involving the crime of murder, is an act of paramount obedience to this commandment, which prohibits murder. The end of the commandment is the preservation and sanctity of human life, and to the attainment of this end, to which the punishments inflicted by the civil magistrate, who is the legitimate avenger of crime, naturally tend, giving security to life by repressing outrage and violence.
To say that it is wrong per se or never justified is contrary to the traditional teaching of the Church. Our Lord Himself confirms this power of capital punishment in several places in the Gospels: (1) His interview with Pilate before His crucifixion (John 19:10-11), (2) in His statement against paedophiles (Matthew 18:6), and (3) in St. Dismas' statement at the Crucifixion (Luke 23:40-41).

[Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Service.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio has gone so far as to announce a political movement to abolish capital punishment, a secular act certainly not within the sphere of a supposed pope. His Newchurch is falling down around him, sinking into a sewer of sex crimes against children, men, and women perpetrated by his Newclergy and religious, yet his priority is to rewrite the Bible. What else would you expect from an immoral heretic?
On June 6, 2019, Western leaders convened to commemorate the 75th anniversary of D-Day, the Allied invasion of the Normandy coastline that began the bloody struggle to liberate Europe from Nazi domination. Not only were there solemn speeches given in honor of the men who were slaughtered at Normandy and across the battlefields of Europe, but the speeches reinforced the idea that the Second World War was the "good war," and the millions of lives lost and the mass destruction that occurred, although lamentable, was necessary.
This was not the perspective of Fr. Denis Fahey, CSSp (1883-1954), a member of the Holy Ghost Congregation, a well-known author of the pre-Vatican II era, whose works, even today, are an inspiration for traditional Catholics all over the world. The main thrust behind his scholarly endeavors was to bring forth the Kingship of Christ in each and every land. Whether it was his theoretical constructs for social order or his exposition of the forces which strove to undermine the rights of Almighty God, Fr. Fahey fought tirelessly for Christ and His One, Holy, Catholic and Apostolic Church. (For further information on Fr. Fahey and his writings, click on the TRADITIO Network's Fr. Fahey Archive.)
None of the Western leaders who spoke at D-Day LXXV seemed to understand that the Second World War and the preceding world conflagration known as the Great War were the death knell of the Christian social order that began at the divinely-inspired victory by the Emperor Constantine over Maxentius at the Milvian Bridge, which soon led to the recognition and legalization of Christianity by the Edict of Milan in 313. World War II ushered in the complete triumph of secularism built upon and carried forth by the liberalist nation state, one of whose ideological building blocks has been religious liberty and pluralism. Not only were all religions, faiths, creeds, sects, and beliefs given equal standing, but the Deistic principle of "Separation of Church and State" would become a ruling feature of every Western governing and law-making body.
This war, however, was fought not for the interests of Christ the King or His Church, or to spread Roman Catholicism, but instead were power struggles between the different forms of democratic collectivism. There was no talk of returning the world to a Christian social order. Moreover, the wars opened the door to Cultural Marxism, which paved the way for immorality and depravity that are now commonplace throughout the world.
For American Catholics, the answer was simple: the American Catholic Church had, from its inception, come to support and actually encourage the national secular state created by the leading minds of the Protestant "Enlightenment." In fact, Catholics took part in the framing of the nation's Constitution, a document whose foundation is, in part, built upon the heretical notions of religious freedom and toleration and which makes no reference to the Blessed Trinity or Christ's Church. Moreover, oftentimes American Catholics ignored or even actively supported the United States' efforts to expunge Catholicism from the Western Hemisphere.
Most pseudo-Catholic intellectuals also, be they of the liberalist or conservative/revisionist types, have interpreted the Second World War in secular terms. Patrick Buchanan, in his study, Churchill, Hitler, and "The Unnecessary War:" How Britain Lost its Empire and the West Lost the World, laments that the war was a geo-political disaster especially for Great Britain, which lost its empire, along with thousands of men, and impoverished its populace for generations. The U.S. too, although victorious and unscathed territorially, would see the expansion of its federal government into nearly all sectors of domestic life and would become the world's policeman with a vast and burdensome global empire.
Why would a pseudo-traditional Catholic like Buchanan, and others, bewail the loss of Protestant England's overseas possessions? Such a mindset is dominant among Neocon Catholic thinkers who, like the Newchurch to which they belong, have long since given up their mission to evangelize and convert all nations to the One True Faith.
But, in truth, the West was not lost in the twentieth century, but when Northern Europe and England chose to follow the diabolical teachings of the likes of Luther, Calvin, Cranmer, and Henry VIII, which split Christendom and led ultimately to its decline and destruction. The sundering of Christendom is at the root of the social, economic, and political crisis from which the modern world suffers, in the mistaken belief that man could rule himself peacefully without divine assistance.
The news in Newrome is that Knights of Malta, once independent, but now taken over by Francis-Bergoglio after he illegally deposed its Grand Master in 2017 and appointed a puppet of his own, have now banned all public New Latin Masses of 1962 (erroneously aka "Extraordinary") in their priories and chapels, effective June 11, 2019. Bergoglio's rampage against anything conservative, let alone traditional, in his Marxist/Modernist Newchurch of the New Order continues.
The Little Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Redeemer, are now effectively suppressed because they use the New Latin Mess. Ditto for the Neo-SSPX nuns at Burghclere, England, because they dared to oppose the Fellay-Pagliarani regime, which is implenting the Newchurchification of the Neo-SSPX. Ditto for the monks of Aachen, the only Newchurch order that really was traditional, using the pre-1962 Mass). The Franciscans of the Immaculate were smashed because they moved towards the traditional, and a thriving conservative (but not traditionalist) group from Brazil has also had its wings clipped.
The Campos Apostolic Administration, meanwhile, now requires its presbyters, in accordance with Protocol 1411 of 1999, offers the invalid Novus Ordo Mess of 1969 along with the Mess of 1962. The Institute of the Good Shepherd no longer has a right to the Mess of 1962 "exclusively." Its presbyters can, and do, use the Novus Ordo Mess. Sooner or later, Francis-Bergoglio will go after the larger 1962 groups: the Canons Regular of the Mother of God in France, the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest and, finally, the "indult" Fraternity of St. Peter.
Meanwhile, Bishop Bernie Pagliarani and Fr. Davie Fellay -- Tweedle-dum and Tweedle-dee -- continue to negotiate the sell-out of their Neo-SSPX to Newrome. In May 2019 they lost a prominent priest from Switzerland, then another prominent priest from France, one of their first priests under Archbishop Lefebvre, leader of the original, traditional Catholic Society of St. Pius X. The departistes are going independent so as to save the Sacred Liturgy and their souls. As the sell-out approaches, the real traditionalists from the Neo-SSPX will abandon that sinking lifeboat and swim over to those that remain afloat.
Now is the time for the various groups of independent priests and single independent priests to revert to (or maintain) the Traditional Latin Mass as it was before the heretic Hannibal Bugnini & the Modernist Gang began their nefarious work of wreckovation and invalidization in the 1950s. Those clergy and laity who stand still and hold their 1962 ground will be pulled into the mire. Only those who pull in the opposite direction can "restore all things in Christ," as Pope St. Pius X put it.
On June 7, 2019, Francis-Bergoglio, through his Novus Ordo congregation for religious life, suppressed a conservative order of nuns in France because "they prayed too much." The Little Sisters of Mary, Mother of the Redeemer, had been attending a Half Novus Ordo Vatican II Mess of 1962. Bergoglio had sent a Modernist Novus Ordo "nun" who wears lay clothing and sports a lesbian-style haircut to impose "modern orientations" on the order, but all except five of the conservative nuns refused to knuckle under and were consequently ejected from the order by Bergoglio, leaving only five Modernist "nuns" in the order, which has been essentially suppressed.
Why were the conservative nuns expelled? They wear traditional habits. Bergoglio doesn't permit that. They pray "too much." Bergoglio doesn't believe in much prayer, only Marxist-Modernist "social action." They attended the New Latin Mess, that is, the Half Novus Ordo Vatican II Mess of 1962, which is supposed to be approved by Newcurch as "Extraordinary," but in reality is being suppressed. The fact that in addition to their conventual prayer, the conservative nuns cared for the disabled and elderly in four different nursing homes made no difference to Bergoglio.
The conservative nuns had tried to overturn the congregation's previous rulings against them by appealing to the Newvatican Supreme Court (Apostolic Signatura), but that court refused even to hear the case. It is important to note that this Supreme Court is not independent, but operates under the direct authority of the Newpope, who can tell it what to do. The Bergoglian fix was in against the conservative nuns from the beginning. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]
True Catholics, Neocon Newchurchers and pseudo-traditionalists should pay attention to this case, which is not the first such order to be suppressed. The idea that traditional Catholicism, let alone conservative Newchurchism, can survive in the Newchurch of the New Order, is proven false by this and many other cases. This is the false notion entertained by the Fellay-Pagliarani Neo-SSPX, which has done essentially nothing traditional since the death of traditional Archbishop Lefebvre in 1991, but instead has moved to sell out to the Modernist New Order sect. Or is this the first time that Francis-Bergoglio has sent out his Commissars to shut down "conservative" religious orders. Bergoglio doesn't believe in prayer, only in Marxist-Modernist "social action." The message from Bergoglio is clear: if you want to stay in my Newchurch, you can't have even the New Latin Mess of 1962, you can't pray too much, and you can't wear a traditional habit.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Do you know whether this new college [name withheld] is a traditional Catholic institution?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
These kinds of questions come up all the time: is such-and-such college or other institution traditional Catholic or New Order? So here is a rule of thumb that you can use for yourself to figure out whether such-and-such institution or organization is traditional Catholic or not. Read the organization's web site and look for signs of association with the heretical Novus Ordo sect.
In the case of the college that you mentioned, your tipoff is the picture and statement at the bottom of the home page (sometimes you have to dig deeply, because Novus Ordo institutions deliberately hide their provenance), which features the statement of a Newchurch bishop. This particular Newbishop is regarded as "conservative," but that doesn't matter. Any Newchurch bishop, no matter how "conservative" he may be, willfully associates himself with the heretical Newchurch of the New Order. Any institution or organization associated with such an invalid (fake) bishop (remember: Newchurch bishops have not been consecrated with the traditional Sacrament of Holy Orders since Newchurch's adoption of the Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968) must automatically be regarded as not traditional Catholic, and true Catholics must disassociate themselves from such institutions or organizations.
Regarding colleges, as Bishop Fulton Sheen once wrote, as quoted in the Official Traditional Catholic Directory: "You are better off going to a state school where you will have the chance to fight for your Faith, than going to a modern Catholic [sic] university where you will have the new watered-down, Modernist version of the Faith spoon-fed to your unsuspecting minds, so that you will be apt to lose your Faith."
You've got to hand it to these Newchurch criminals: they stop at nothing to conceal their crimes. On June 5, 2019, Newchurch archbishop Michael Bransfield, of Wheeling, West Virginia, was exposed as having paid out 350,000 dollars with 565 checks in cash bribes of as much as 15,000 dollars to more than a dozen Newcardinals and several of his young victims in an effort to stop his ouster because of his rampage of sex crimes. Newvatican's report was supposed to be confidential, but it was leaked to the press. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Washington Post.]
Although Bransfield wrote the checks from his personal account over more than a decade, he extorted payback of the sum to himself from the Newdiocese that he himself controlled. His actions are being investigated as a U.S. federal crime. In addition to his sex crimes, Newarchbishop Branfield adopted an extravagant and lavish lifestyle on the backs of his Newchurchers, who are the poorest in the United States. The monies that he spent from funds that had been donated to Newchurch for charitable purposes included:
The corrupt Newchurch prelates who took these bribes included:
True Catholics, Newarchbishop Bransfield stands accused of sexually harassing young men who worked for him. These accusations come not only from victims in Wheeling but also from Philadelphia and Washington, D.C. Bransfield also stands accused of establishing a "culture of fear of retaliation and retribution." He spent money on himself and Newchurch prelates that Newchurchers thought was going toward charitable purposes. In fact, the Bransfield case shows that Newchurch is without a doubt a fraud as a religious organization. Newarchbishop Bransfield the Embezzler, Bribester, and Sex Criminal is an appropriate poster boy for Newchurch Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, which continues unabated.
Increasing calls for the de-con-anization of JPII-Wojtyla have prompted a frightened response from Newchurch, which now finds itself on the defensive in trying to justify giving a fraudulent Novus Ordo "Unsainthood" to the First Paedophile Newpope. As more and more evidence is being unearthed in courts around the world on Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, it is becoming clear that one high point in the crime cyle came in the 1980s, just when the Polish Newpope-Unsaint was in complete charge, having been elected in 1978.
So, Newchurch rolled out Stanislaw Dziwisz, who was appointed a Newcardinal by the Second Paedophile Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger, within less than a year after the death of JPII-Wojtyla. It seemed at the time, and even more so now, that this Newcardinalate was a payoff for the silence of Dziwisz, who was Wojtyla's private secretary. Dziwisz issued an open letter on May 28, 2019, filled with a meretricious defense of the Unsaint, which went contrary to facts on the record. Dziwisz phrased the letter as a thank-you to the Third Paedophile Newpope "for his efforts at putting an end to attempts to defame" the Unsaint. Of course, this thank-you was a ruse.
Dziwisz made the ridiculous claim that JPII-Wojtyla "was the first [New]pope who systemically introduced the protection of children and youth in the [New]church." In fact, in one of the most scandalous events in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, Wojtyla in 2004 allowed Newcardinal Bernard Law, of Boston, Massachusetts, to continue in office after the secret of his complicity in suborning rampant paedophile crimes was trumpeted to the world in a series of investigative reports by the Boston Globe. When Wojtyla refused to fire his paedophile Newcardinal, the Newchurchers of Boston within a week took it upon themselves to drive him out of the United States and forced him to hole up in Newvatican for the rest of his life, where he died in 2017. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Zenit.]
True Catholics, you know that you have hit the truth when Newchurch has to send out its agents to defend its crimes. Because of the embarrassment of JPII-Wojtyla being exposed as a paedophile Newpope, Newchurch tried to cover up the facts by declaring him a Novus Ordo saint, i.e., an Unsaint, in an ridiculously short period of time, a mere 9 years, before a full and factual investigation could be conducted. Already in 1983 Wojtyla had gutted the canonization process to turn it into a joke, a con-anization process, in which no true Catholic can trust.
This scandal is just the next step in the takeover of the Catholic Church by the Newchurch vandals and their barbaric Newpopes. On June 3, 2019, St. Patrick's Cathedral in Pune, India, was turned over to the infidel Mohammedans for a service at which the Koran was placed on the once-Catholic eucharistic dinner table. The event was personally approved by the Newchurch bishop of Pune, Thomas Dabre, who commended it.
That "unsaint" Novus Ordo nun, "Mother" Theresa of Calcutta, spurred a lot of this heretical False "Oecumenism" (we all worship the same god; all religions are equally true), which saw New Order churches worship the pagan elephant god, Ganesh. Theresa created a hybrid order of Mohammedanism and the New Order and spread it all over India. Perhaps this fact should not be surprising. Theresa had appointed as spiritual director for herself and her Missionaries of Charity a Newchurch presbyter who turned out to be a flagrant paedophile. When the man's crimes became public, Theresa did not fire him; she defended him! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Hindu Star Times.]
True Catholics, when the "prophet" Jesus Christ was referred to at the cathedral service by the imam, He was termed "Isa," which is taken as a slur by Christians. The Arch-heretic Martin Luther came up with the idea of destroying the unity of Rome and turning over decisions to national bishops' conferences (synods). That idea was implemented at the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) to replace the Roman Catholic Church with the heretical Newchurch of the New Order, in which every country makes up its own false faith as it pleases. The Newchurch of the New Order is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I am a retired military man who has tattoos received many years ago when I was in the service. I have confessed this sin. Other than that, what can I do now?
THE TRADITIO FATHERS REPLY
At this point you have done all that you can reasonably do. At least try to keep the tattoos covered so as not to cause scandal to others. Be sure to pass on what you have learned to others, particularly young people, who have been failed by their spiritual, not to say medical, leaders about the evil of this practice, which is entirely unChristian and specifically condemned in Sacred Scripture (the Bible). Unfortunately, it is only with considerable difficulty, pain, and expense that tattoos can be removed. All the more reason for Catholics to encourage young people, not to say adults, to exercise the principal Christian virtue, Prudence (Practical Wisdom).
Tattooing is regarded in Sacred Scripture as a pagan practice: "You shall not make any cuttings in your flesh for the dead, nor shall you make in yourselves any figures or marks: I am the Lord" (Leviticus 19:28/DRV). Tattooing is a sinful mutilation of the body in contravention of the Fifth Commandment. Exhibitionism is intrinsically unCatholic as falling short of the virtue of humility. Would Our Lord have had a tattoo? Our Lady? Of course not.
Tattooing also involves unnecessary medical risks, which is also a sin against the Fifth Commandment of God. The tattoo inks contain carcinogens like lead and mercury. Tattooing transmits HIV and Hepatitis C. These viruses can erupt virulently, or they can lie dormant in the body for twenty or more years after the tattooing incident. Hepatitis can destroy the liver and thus weaken the body until it dies in agony. So dangerous is this practice that tattooed individuals cannot give blood so as not to transmit the viruses to others. Skin cancers, including the all-too-frequently lethal melanomas, have been reported within tattoo sites. Tattoo inks have been found to be contaminated with bacteria that can lead to serious injuries and an increased risk of infection because the skin barrier is broken during the procedure. Some infections can also leave permanent scarring.
Nor is tattooing morally acceptable when the tattoo is of a religious object, such as the Cross or Our Lady. In fact, the exact opposite is true. Such a mutilation of the body is an even graver sin as not only is the Fifth Commandment of God being violated but also the Second Commandment of God, because such a perversion of a sacred image constitutes the grave sin of blasphemy. Those who walk around with such images on their bodies are declaring to the world that they persist in Mortal Sin against God. It is noteworthy that these sins are now rife Hispanic countries, which were formerly devoutly Catholic, but now have gone into the heretical New Ordo and other Protestant sects. These people now freely desecrate their bodies with demonic tattoos of Our Lady and Our Lord cut into their bodies.
On May 22, 2019, it was revealed on June 4, 2019, Francis-Bergoglio confirmed as "official" for his Newchurch of the New Order a traditional of two very familiar phrases from the Bible: one in the Lord's Prayer and one in St. Luke's narrative of Christmas. This approval is, for the time, being only for the Italian version, but you can be sure that it will shortly be rolled out for all the other vulgar tongues as well. The radical Italian Newbishops wanted the change, so Bergoglio confirmed it.
Historically, the Catholic Church has been very careful about "translations," because the pre-Protestant and Protestant heretics issued fake "translations" to make their heretical notions seem as if they came from the Bible. That fraud is still being carried on today by the heretical Newchurch, in such "translations" as the New Jerusalem Bible, the New American Bible, and the New English Bible. The Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) and Bergoglio took away from their Newchurch the power to correct mistranslations. Now the natives in the hinterlands control Sacred Scripture, not Newrome.
Francis-Bergoglio mucked with the original meaning of Christ by changing, in Italian, what amounted to: "And lead us not into temptation" to "And let us not fall into temptation." Well, Bergoglio may try to fiddle with the "translation" while his Newrome burns, but he cannot change the original of St. Jerome's Latin Vulgate and the original Biblical Greek. Bergoglio wants to rewrite the Bible and "translate" the phrase as "Do not let us fall into temptation." Biblical scholars have ridiculed Bergoglio's words, concluding that he doesn't understand what they mean.
In fact, Bergoglio's "correction" to the translation is itself erroneous. In the original Greek "mè eis enénkes hemâs eis peirasmón" and St. Jerome's Latin Vulgate "et ne nos inducas in tentationem" (Matthew 6:13), the translation problem is not with the verb ("inducas, lead into"), but with the noun (tentationem), which has two meanings in both Greek and Latin. "Temptation," yes, but that is not the meaning here, which is the other: "test." Thus: "lead us not to the test." God does not tempt, but he does test our Faith, as the Book of Job in the Old Testament clearly teaches. The original has no sense of "fall," and Bergoglio does not deal with "temptation."
Having turned his hand to destroying the Lord's Prayer, just as his predecessor, Benedict-Ratzinger tried to change the Litanical Prayer for the conversion of the Jews on Good Friday and made an unholy mess of it, Francis-Bergoglio went on to muck with the words of the Angels on Christmas morning (Luke 2:14): "pax hominibus bonae voluntatis," "peace to men of good will," which Bergoglio changed to "peace to people beloved by God." Again, there is no "beloved by God" in the original; Bergoglio is just making this up. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by La Crox.]
True Catholics, translations into the vulgar tongues are of their nature rough and erroneous to begin with. That is one of the reasons why the Catholic Church's official Bible and its Mass and Divine Office remain in Latin perpetually. The hideous fake "translation" of the Gloria is reminiscent of the one that was fabricated just after Vatican II for the Ave Maria (Luke 1:28), in which the Virgin Mary not "full of grace ("gratia plena), but "highly favored one." That "new translation" was so detested by Catholics that it quickly fell out of use. With any luck, so will Bergoglio's hideous and erroneous "translations" of the Lord's Prayer and the Gloria!
In another one of his ill-starred question-and-answer sessions aboard his plane returning from his latest junket, to Romania, on June 2, 2019, Francis-Bergoglio took the opportunity to censure traditional Catholics, who, he said, "seek to safeguard the ashes of the past" and to call them "Fundamentalists." Bergoglio was recoiling from the call by his own Newchurch theologians for his deposition from the Newpapal office, calling upon the College of Newcardinals to take up the issue officially, if Bergoglio does not immediately recant from his heresies.
Far from recanting, Francis-Bergoglio instead coupled this denigration of true Catholics with the utterance of yet another statement reeking of heresy about Sacred Tradition. "The tradition of the Church is always in movement," he said. Yet the teaching of the true Catholic Church is that Sacred Tradition consists in the oral teaching of Christ and the Apostles, contrasted with the written teaching Sacred Scripture (the Bible). Essentially, Sacred Tradition cannot change, or "develop," as the heresy of Modernism, condemned specifically by Pope Pius IX and Pope St. Pius X, holds. The heresy of Modernism is associated with Protestantism and is running rife through Bergoglio's heretical Newchurch of the New Order. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio also called traditional Catholics "Fundamentalists," as if it were anything but Catholic to stand fast in Tradition, as St. Paul the Apostle required (2 Thessalonians 2:14). "Fundamentalist" is only one of some forty vile epithets that Bergoglio has uttered against true Catholics, some of these epithets being quite vile, such as "fomenters of coprophragia" (dung eaters). It is rather Bergoglio, the Third Paedophile Newpope, who has placed himself outside the Catholic Church by his numerous heresies, for which now his own Newchurch theologians are calling for his deposition.
The report has come from Rome in late May 2019 that the Argentinian Pablo Enrique Suarez, 56, who was appointed in 2014 by Bernie Fellay, while the latter was still Superior General of the Neo-SSPX, to be the Neo-SSPX's Chief Financial Officer (Bursar General) has defected from the Neo-SSPX to the Novus Ordo sect. Moreover, Francis-Bergoglio ordered that he reside in Newrome in the Domus Sanctae Marthae, the Hilton-like hotel in which Bergoglio himself resides.
To add to the scandal spreading in the Fellay-Pagliarani Neo-SSPX, Bernie Fellay's successor as Superior General, Davide Pagliarani, known to be a puppet of Fellay, who did not want to run again for a 36-year term, signed off on the defection. Since the Neo-SSPX now dances to Bergoglio's tune, Pagliarani didn't have any choice. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Bishop Richard Williamson.]
True Catholics, the defector Suarez as Bursar General managed the property of the Neo-SSPX worldwide, so he knows all of Fellay-Pagliarani's secrets that he can relay to the Third Paedophile Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio. Suarez will be "incardinated" into the Newdiocese of Newrome. Perhaps in payment for his defection, Suarez will receive not thirty Roman silver coins as Judas did, but an appointment as a fake Novus Ordo Newbishop. Can there be any doubt left that the Neo-SSPX is not now, and has not been, after the death of Archbishop Lefebvre in 1991, a traditional Catholic organization? It is complicit in the heresy of Modernism, with some of its clergy being originally "installed" as presbyters in the New Order. Already its "confessions" and "marriages" are under the control of the New Order, by a previous Fellay-Pagliarani sellout. The remaining clergy and laity need to get into their emergency parachutes and eject from the Neo-SSPX -- now!
So hated is the Chairman of Francis-Bergoglio's Executive Committee of Nine Newcardinals running Newvatican that on May 30, 2019, Oscar Rodriguez Maradiaga had to be evacuated from the airport at Tegucigalpa, the capital of Honduras. The Newcardinal of Tegucigalpa was confronted by a large crowd of Newchurchers enraged because of his involvement in paedophile crimes at his Newseminary there. He is also accused of sheltering his auxiliary Newbishop, a homosexual predator, and of embezzling millions of U.S. dollars of Newchurch funds.
Mariadiaga was said to be "in fear for his life." He was removed from the aircraft and scuttled out a back entrance. So implicated in the crimes of the Francis-Bergoglio regime is Maradiaga that he has been called the "Vice Newpope," an apt name that suggests not only being second in command at Newvatican but also being involved in criminal vice. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Latin America's teleSUR News Agency.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio surrounds himself with criminals, like the head of his Executive Committee. This is the same Executive Committee that is even now restructuring the Newchurch Curia. With such ilk as the Marxist-Modernist Bergoglio and his Vice Newpope in charge, what little is left of Newvatican will soon be destroyed completely.
As more and more Newchurchers are calling Francis-Bergoglio a heretic, Bergoglio has gone into denial. On May 28, 2019, his "homily" at his Domus Sanctae Marthae chapel, he devoted his Novus Ordo Mess "homily" not to Our Lord's Resurrection and Ascension, not to the Blessed Virgin Mary, not to the Holy Angels, not to the Saints, but to his own political concerns and to defend himself against charges of heresy. He was barely able to speak on the subject, but emitted some nervous laughter.
Traditional Catholics got the jump on Bergoglio from the beginning of his regime on March 13, 2013. From the beginning, of course, Bergoglio was a loud-mouthed supporter of the heretical Modernist Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), which destroyed in Newchurch a valid Mass, Sacraments, and priesthood. Bergoglio has also allied himself with heretical doctrines on marriage, oecumenism ("we all worship the same gods"; "all religions are equal")., and conversion/proselytizing. Francis-Bergoglio has also stained his Newchurch with atheistic Marxism. He himself has said that atheistic "Marxists are better than Catholics, meaning his anti-Catholic Newchurchers.
True Catholics, hundreds of his own Newchurch theologians, including several Newbishops, have signed a statement urging Francis-Bergoglio to recant his heresies and have denounced him to the College of (Newchurch) Bishops for action. Meanwhile, many thousands of lay and clerical Newchurchers have signed a petition supporting his deposition. It is now not just some traditional Catholics who consider the Holy See vacant, but ever growing numbers of Newchurchers themselves. The statistics show Bergoglio's ship rapidly sinking, with low popularity and low respect because of his personal complicity in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust.
Francis-Bergoglio has been racking up quite a reputation as a liar. Among other lies in which he has been caught was his denial that he knew anything about the sodomizing of boys in Chile. Then one of the boys said that he had written a personal letter detailing the crimes to Bergoglio and had it hand-delivered to the Newpope by Newcardinal Sean O'Malley, Bergoglio's Prefect of Child Protection. O'Malley confirmed to the international press that in fact he had personally placed the boy's letter directly into the hand of Bergoglio.
Now Newvatican's Ambassador to the United States has called Francis-Bergoglio a liar. In an interview to the Crux News Service, released May 28, 2019, Bergoglio stated about Theodore McCarrick, the Newcardinal of Washington, D.C., who was recently outed as a paedophile predator of boys and young Newseminarians up and down the East Coast of the United States: "You know that, about McCarrick, I knew nothing." Yet Ambassador (Nuncio) Carlo Vigano stated that he had personally told Bergoglio about McCarrick's crimes. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Crux News Service.]
True Catholics, after Francis-Bergoglio was personally informed by his Ambasador Vigano of McCarrick's crimes, the Newpope did nothing. In fact, he continued to appoint McCarrick to sensitive Newpapal missions. When McCarrick's crimes finally hit the international press, and Bergoglio could no longer deny them, he finally -- and seemingly reluctantly -- removed McCarrick only in 2019. Bergoglio seems to delight in surrounding himself with the most immoral characters and persists in holding onto them until he has no other choice. For good reason has he earned his eponym as the Third Paedophile Newpope.
Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel on May 24, 2019, has started raids of paedophile Newchurch clergy, calling the first brood of five presbyters merely the "tip of the iceberg." The five have been charged with felony sex crimes for "prey[ing] on young children." Investigators are currently following up on 450 tips of paedophile sex crimes by Newchurch presbyters. Raids of Newchurch premises and persons have to date been conducted at Newchurch dioceses across Michigan, which involved 70 police officers and 14 assistant attorney generals. In addition, the Attorney General has accused Newchurch leaders of not fully cooperating with law enforcement.
The Newchurch presbyters plied boys and girls aged 12-16 with drugs such as cocaine and marijuana, and gave them cigarettes and alcohol before sexually assaulting them, according to sworn affidavits. In one case, a presbyter is accused of threatening to kill his victim if the boy reported the crimes to his parents. The corrupt Newchurch leaders tried to justify its crimes by claiming that the sex crimes were the "fault of the child victims"!
A particularly blasphemous aspect of these crimes is the fact that the Newchurch presbyters "mixed their sexual activity with references to [Newchurch] beliefs or committed the acts during [Newchurch] rituals," such as Newchurch's fake "Reconciliation," the perverted version of the traditional Catholic Sacrament of Penance, which Newchurch did away with in 1973.

True Catholics, raids of Newchurch premises and clergy have already been conducted at Newchurch dioceses across Michigan, which have involved 70 police officers and 14 assistant attorney generals. In addition, the Attorney General has accused Newchurch leaders of not fully cooperating with law enforcement. In other words, Francis-Bergoglio's criminal Newchurch, for all its pious words, is complicit in the sodomy and rape of boys and girls under its charge every bit as much as before, if not more. Newchurch leaders and its, to use the Mafia's term, capo di tutti capi, Bergoglio, are out-and-out criminals under civil law. One can only imagine what is waiting for them after the earthly law is through with them. No wonder Bergoglio constantly talks about "mercy," but Scripture is all too clear about the fact that those who are not repentant of their grievous sins do not receive God's mercy.
