To the surprise of no one, the fabricated Vatican III Council (aka Amazon Synod) in its final report of October 27, 2019, opened the way to non-celibate presbyters, deaconnesses, and even priestesses. This was a setup, of course. The Marxist/Modernist Francis-Bergoglio's plan is to destroy every vestige of Catholicism in the Newchurch of the New Order -- not that it is at all Catholic after the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965).
Newcardinal Walter Brandmuller exposed the lie by asking a revealing question. If the goal is to get more Newchurch clergy to serve in remote regions, why not "install" more married "lay deacons," which have been "approved" for Newchurch (they are not part of traditional Catholicism, of course) since 1967, the year before Newchurch did away with the Catholic priesthood by adopting the invalid (fake) New Ordinal of 1968? Apparently, there are very few lay deacons in the Amazon. Oops! Bergoglio's true, heretical intentions are exposed once again.
Newbishop Johnny Reyes, of Venezuela, provided an even more embarrassing solution to the problem of limited Amazonian Newchurch clergy. He suggested that Francis-Bergoglio should send his multitudinous presbyters that are whiling their time away in Newrome into the Amazon jungle. These unoccupied presbyter-bureaucrats are only getting into crimes and immoral "entertainments" of various sorts. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
True Catholics, the logic of Newcardinal Brandmuller and Newbishop Reyes is unassailable. Of course, the pagan Francis-Bergoglio, who did not hesitate to place the pagan Mother Earth goddess's image right in front of St. Peter's altar, is not the least interested in the Amazon. The synod was simply a vehicle by which a passel of unordained Newchurch clergy can become all the more ridiculous, adding to the current presbyters who are not priests, more phony Newchurch clergy like non-celibate presbyters, deaconesses, and priestesses. Truly, as we said, the Amazon Synod was a Vatican III and was intended by Bergoglio to accelerate the demise of Newchurch faster than even the execrable Vatican II Anti-council.
The quick death of Newpope John Paul I-Luciani, "The Smiling Newpope," in 1978, only 33 days after his election, caused shock worldwide. it didn't help that Newvatican told many fables about his death, which were in short time exposed as lies. Luciani had been an outspoken critic of the Mafia control of the Vatican Bank and pledged to root it out immediately after his election. David Yallop's 1984 book, In God's Name, suggested the theory that Luciani was likely done in by the Mafia, with heavy complicity by the Newvatican curia.
Now, in his new book, When the Bullet Hits the Bone, mafioso Anthony Raimondi admits that he was involved in a plot to assassinate JPI-Luciani with cyanide in his tea because Luciani threatened to expose massive stock fraud by Vatican bank insiders. Raimondi claims that he was recruited for the assassination by Newarchbishop Paul Marcinkus, who ran the corrupt Vatican bank. By the connivance of the conspirators, which included two Newcardinals, the death was ruled a heart attack by an inside physician. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the New York Post.]
True Catholics, the short saga of JPI-Luciani was filled with enticing possibilities. The founder of the Catholic Traditionalist Movement in 1964, the noted Fr. Gommar DePauw, reported in 1978 that Luciani had summoned him from New York to Newrome to sit on a commission to restore the Traditional Latin Mass, but before the commission could sit, Luciani died (or was assassinated). Luciani had been reported in some circles as favoring a return to traditional Catholicism. At that time the "New Mess" was only ten years old, so a reversion could have been practical before Newchurch had become ensconsed. One can only wonder.
On October 23, 2019, it was reported that L'abbaye Notre-Dame de Bellaigue in Virlet, Auvergne, France, housing the Benedictines of Our Lady of Bellaigue, has been expelled by the Neo-SSPX regime because the Benedictines rejected Bernie Fellay/Dave Pagnliarani's policy to sell out to Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order.
The Neo-SSPX's "Diabolical Duo" Fellay/Pagliarani tried to force the abbot, Fr. Placido, to resign, but he refused, and his monks stood behind him. The abbey is a particularly great loss for the Diabolical Duo because it is an ancient Cistercian abbey founded in 950. It will now continue as a traditional Catholic abbey operating independently of the pseudo-traditionalists Fellay/Pagliarani and their followers.
True Catholics, the Neo-SSPX is not the original traditional Catholic organization, the Society of St. Pius X, founded by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre (ob. 1991). It has shifted toward the Newchurch of the New Order, founded in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council. In recent years some 600 of its priests have walked out in disgust at Fellay/Pagliarani's pro-New Order stance. Now another great abbey has deserted the Neo-SSPX and gone independent. Undoubtedly there were be more desertions from Fellay/Pagliarani because the head of Newchurch, the Marxist/Modernist Francis-Bergoglio, has now openly accepted paganism and has installed pagan statues before the altar of St. Peter's Archbasilica. We may be witnessing the dissolution of the Neo-SSPX.
On October 25, 2019, Francis-Bergoglio finally admitted publicly that the five idols rightly hurled into the Tiber River were "Pachamamas." Originally, he claimed that the images were of the (pregnant) Virgin Mary. Pachamama is the often-vengeful Mother Earth goddess of the Andean peoples. She is a pagan goddess.
This means that the worshippers in the Vatican Gardens on October 5, 2019, celebrating the beginning on the following day of Vatican III (AKA Amazon Synod), bowed in veneration of these idols, including a male figure cum phallo erecto. Although Bergoglio did not himself bow before the Pachamama idols at that time, the photographic record shows that he did impart a "blessing: over one of these idols.
How can any Catholic bless a pagan idol? For any real Catholic, this would be a blatant violation of the First Commandment. It would be a profound act of sacrilege and idolatry. Francis-Bergoglio's actions -- this one and so many others -- are not Catholic. It can be logically concluded, therefore, that Bergoglio is not a Catholic. Of course, we knew that before. But now he has helped to make it obvious to the world.
We TRADITIO Fathers reported earlier in these Commentaries that Francis-Bergoglio had on October 15, 2019, destroyed the Marian Rosary in his Newchurch by replacing it with a diabolical Robotic Rosary, an electronic device, which, when activated, robotically controls the wearer's use of ten "thematic" Newrosaries to be updated each year, such as the "Environmental Rosary," the "Global Warming Rosary," the "United Nations Rosary," the "Illegal Immigration" Rosary, the "Gay" Rosary, and the like, with different political goals changing for each year.
Within two days of the blasphemous Newrosary's release, an outside security firm revealed to the world that Francis-Bergoglio and his Newvatican are just as incompetent ans they are heretical. The firm discovered that the Newrosary in its digital form is easily hackable to steal users' personal information and PINs. Although Newvatican claimed that it has fixed the problem, its credibility at this point is zero, and a WORLDWIDE WARNING has been issued to reject use of the Bergoglian Newrosary permanently. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Catholic Herald.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's Newvatican, which is now drowning in red ink because Newchurchers are abandoning its moral and doctrinal corruption in droves, is going to take a bath on this blasphemous Robotic Rosary, for which it was charging an exorbitant fee of over 100 U.S. dollars. You would think that Bergoglio would offer his Newrosary free of charge as a religious service, but no -- he needs green badly, so he ignores St. Paul's warning: "The desire of money is the root of all evils: which some coveting have erred from the faith and have entangled themselves in many sorrows" (1 Timothy 6:10/DRV). A better description of Bergoglio's corruption cannot be found that St. Paul's.
On October 22, 2019, Francis-Bergoglio lashed out at "ultra-conservative" Newchurchers, who have vehemently criticized him for his pagan Vatican III (aka Amazon Synod), which at its introductory ceremony on October 5, 2019, featured nude statues of a pregnant Virgin Mary and a nude male cum phallo erecto, all in the presence of Bergoglio pontificating on his big chair. The statutes were thereafter moved to the Church of Santa Maria in Traspontina.
On October 21, 2019, two outraged men abducted the blasphemous pagan statues and dumped them into the Tiber River, saying that they acted because Newchurchers are being "attacked by members of our own [New]church. We do not accept this! We no longer stay silent! We start to act NOW!” They filmed the event, and it went viral on the internet.
Francis-Bergoglio's heretical synod has been thoroughly pagan from its outset. It is working to introduce into Newchurch deaconesses, priestesses, married presbyter/witch doctors, and other abominations. Newvatican called the disposal of the blasphemous statues as a “violent and intolerant gesture.” As a group Newchurch bishops and laymen moaned: "In recent days, we have been victims of acts of violence, reflecting religious intolerance, racism, humiliation against indigenous peoples above all” and called not for Catholicism, but for Leftist "diversity." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
True Catholics, who has been more hit with religious intolerance, racism, and humiliation by Newchurch and its Newpopes than traditional Catholics: true Catholics who simply want the true Catholic Faith of Jesus Christ, the true Mass and Sacraments, true doctrine, and true morality? The Marxist/Modernist heretic Newpope Francis-Bergoglio considers these true Catholics the enemy. But the worm has turned. Even many Newchurchers have had enough of the Newchurch of the New Order, its New Mess and "sacraments," its New Doctrine (heresy), and its New Morality (sodomy and paedophilia). The Great Tiber Dump may be a sign that finally widespread action will result in dumping the heretical Newpope and his Newchurch. More and more Newchurchers are leaving, and some of these are joining true traditional Catholic churches, chapels, and oratories.
Whenever the ancient Romans and the early Roman Catholics rejected a corrupt leader, they would sometimes hurl them to their death in the Tiber River that runs through the city of Rome. Now two unidentified Newchurchers had had it with Francis-Bergoglio and the pagan rites over which he presided in the Vatican Gardens on October 6, 2019, to initiate Vatican III (aka Amazon Synod). involving nude female pregnant figures (representing the Virgin Mary) and a nude male figure cum phallo erecto.
At dawn on October 21, 2019, the two outraged Newchurchers asconded with the pagan figures and hurled them into the Tiber River off the Sant'Angelo Bridge, named after St. Michael the Archangel, whose figure tops the castle there. After the pagan ceremony at which Francis-Bergoglio personally presided, the blasphemous figures had been erected at the Church of Santa Maria in Traspontina very near the Vatican. The two Newchurchers acted, as they said, "for only one reason: Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, His blessed Mother, and everybody who follows Christ is being attacked by members of our own [New]church. We do not accept this! We no longer stay silent! We start to act NOW!”
The message went on to state: "Because we love humanity, we cannot accept that people of a certain region should not be baptized and therefore are being denied entrance into Heaven. It is our duty to follow the words of God as our Holy Mother did. There is no second way of salvation. Christus vincit, Christus regnat, Christus imperat!” This part of the message refers to Newchurch's Oecumenical Heresy, that Jews, Muslims, Protestants, pagans, atheists, and the like are not to be evangelized into the true Catholic Faith, that "we all worship the same gods" and "all religious are equal." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
True Catholics, Newchurchers are now protesting outside the synod with signs reading "The synod is heretical," written in English, Italian, and Latin. By now Francis-Bergoglio has gone so far as to reveal himself a Marxist/Modernist, even a pagan, that at least some Newchurchers, from laymen on up to Newcardinals have started to question the heretical Vatican II Anti-council and its Newpopes, just as traditional Catholics have maintained from the beginning. Too bad the Newchurchers were so oblivious that it took them 55 years to wake up to the reality that Newchurch is a diabolical fraud of the Anti-council.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
In the TRADITIO Network's Traditional Latin Mass, Divine Office & Sacraments department, eight hours are listed for the Divine Office: Matins, Lauds, Prime, Terce, Sext, None, Vespers, and Compline. Recently, however, a recent Commentary stated that seven Hours of the day are chanted or recited by the Church in its Divine Office. Is there a discrepancy in the number?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
No, the list is correct, but Matins and Lauds are counted together as one Hour. For the basis of the Divine Office, the Church refers to Psalm 118:164/DRV: "Septies in die laudem dixi tibi" [Seven times a day I have given praise to thee]. Thus, the Divine Office, which includes the Mass itself (usually after the Hour of Terce), has its origins, as does the Sacred Chant, in pre-Christian practice, so venerable are the rites of the Roman Catholic Church. It is against Sacred Tradition, confirmed by the dogmatic Council of Trent with anathemata (a formal condemnation involving excommunication), to act contumeliously to "modernize" what has been established in Tradition, as did the Vatican II Anti-council and its subsequent Newpopes.
It all started when Mother Frances Cabrini (1850-1917), an Italian-American Roman Catholic nun, who founded the Missionary Sisters of the Sacred Heart of Jesus and was canonized by Pope Pius XII in 1946, was voted as one of the "She Built New York City" honorees as an historically significant New York woman. Cabrini was to have had a statue erected in the city where her order aided Italian immigrants to the United States. But New York major Bill de Blasio's wife, a Black feminist, and anti-Catholic bigot .vetoed the statue.
Outraged New York citizens appealed to Governor Andrew Cuomo, who announced on October 14, 2019, that he would devote state funds to a Cabrini statue. The "mayoress" of New York City has been denounced by many New Yorkers for outright racial and religious bigotry. The mayoress's husband, de Blasio, was heckled as "the worse mayor ever" when he appeared in the October 14, 2019, Columbus Day Parade. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the New York Post.]
True Catholics, there is no religion left in Newchurch. It is merely a secularist political organization, inciting secular political bickering by secular politicians. It is veered toward a decided Marxist bent under Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, who has publicly stated, "Some of my best friends are atheists." Bergoglio comes from an atheistic communist region in South America and prides himself on being a member of the Newjesuits, who are Leftist extremists shoving their murderous "Liberation Theology" down the throats of Newchurchers.
Sister Lucy Kalappura had the guts to protest publicly against a Newchurch bishop accused of repeatedly raping a nun between 2014 and 2016. In April 2019 Newbishop Franko Mulakkal was formally with the crimes. The Newchurch nun's public action so embarrassed the paedophile Newchurch that her order expelled her on August 9, 2019. She appealed to Newvatican, which confirmed her expulsion on October 19, 2019.
If Newchurch "authorities" were hoping to shut up the gutsy nun, just the opposite is happening. She is speaking out all the more against the paedophile Newchurch of Francis-Bergoglio, and her case is getting worldwide attention in the press. She is now publicly stating that she has been "denied justice" by the Newvatican kangaroo congregation. She says that Newvatican never even bothered to get her side of the story. Thus, she is not going to appeal further to Newvatican because it has already demonstrated bias against her. She has vowed not to leave her convent and plans to go to civil court.
Malakkal is not the only Newchurch bishop being accused of the rape of nuns. Newchurch and Newvatican have been mute about this problem that has been reported throughout India. Newchurch has been accused in court of attempting to "sabotage" evidence in order to protect the bishop rapist. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by BBC News.]
True Catholics, the Roman Catholic Church had prided itself on following the great principles of Roman law. But in 1964, when the Vatican II Anti-council replaced the Roman Catholic Church with the Newchurch of the New Order, Newchurch's standard of justice rapidly sank. There have been numerous accounts of corruption in Newvatican's courts and influence peddling by Francis-Bergoglio into court decisions. More and more Newchurchers, particularly children who have been raped, sodomized, and otherwise sexually assaulted by Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters with the support of Bergoglio, are not taking the injustice any longer and are transfering their cases to the civil courts, which have backed their claims and assessed high financial penalties of Newchurch, several of whose Newdioceses have consequently been forced into bankruptcy, with half their existing churches being sold off to pay court judgments.
In 1973 the Newchurch of the New Order did away with the Sacrament of Penance, substituting for it an invalid, non-sacramental "Rite of Reconciliation." Thus, "confession" in Newchurch is a waste of time. Neither is it a sacrament nor does it forgive sins nor is it a priest to whom a Newchurcher confesses because in 1968 Newchurch had done away with ordinations,.substituting instead a Protestantized New Ordinal merely to "install" presbyters, who are like Protestant ministers.
Now Newchurch is talking at Vatican III (aka Amazon Synod), going on October 6-27, 2019, in Newrome, of changing the definition of sin. Among the worst sins have always been those called contra naturam. Such sins against nature include sodomy and murder, which are among the Biblical Sins that Cry out to God for Retribution. Now murder is passed over, and we all know what Francis-Bergoglio thinks about sodomy, even against children: "Who am I to judge?," he says. Obviously, such a statement cannot come from a true Catholic pope.
Now "sins against nature" would be not those against God's morality implanted in the created nature of man, but those of the pagan kind, sins against the pagan Mother Goddess Nature. Such sins would include: using incandescent light bulbs instead of CFLs, acting to protect national borders against illegal invaders, using organic fossil fuels instead of electricity, watering lawns, failing to obey the United Nations, and using heating and air-conditioning. Such "crimes against nature," according to Synod Newarchbishop Pedro Brito Guimaraes, are "ecological sins," which Newchurchers need to confess in the Newchurch Rite of Reconciliation. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Vatican Information Service.]
True Catholics, Newchurch is more and more becoming the butt of ridicule even among its own members. Newchurch's own Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C., reports that only two per cent of Newchurchers even bother to go to "reconciliation." No wonder Francis-Bergoglio and his minions can commit real sins against nature, like murder and sodomy, without having any compunction of conscience, but if God hurls a thunderbolt at them from Heaven, they believe that it will be for water the Newchurch lawn!
Let's start with some basics. First, the Rosary does not stand on its own. It is a knockoff of the Divine Office (Officium Divinum), the Seven Hours that are chanted or recited by the Church each day according to the traditional liturgical calendar. The Mass is a part of the Divine Office, usually chanted or recited after the Hour of Terce, the third hour of the day. The Divine Office is centered upon the weekly cycle of the 150 Psalms. That is why the Rosary consists of fifteen decades (15) of Aves -- 150, not 200, to which as the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla tried to change it in 2002, adding another 50 New Age "mysteries." In 1970, one year after the invalid (fake) "New Mess," Newchurch abolished for itself the Divine Office and replaced it with a phony Protestantized "Liturgy of the Hours."
The notion of the Rosary did not exist until somewhat into the second millennium after Christ. Up to that time monks and priests would chant the Divine Office in their monasteries with many of the faithful attending. When some civilization and safety began to restore itself following the Dark Ages after the Fall of Rome, occasionally a monk would travel from one monastery to another, during which time he would not be able to chant the Divine Office (unless he happened to have it memorized, as some remarkably did) because books were scarce.
A temporary expedient was substituted, by which the traveling monk would pray 150 Aves representing the 150 Psalms that he would have chanted as part of the Divine Office. That temporary expedient grew to have a life of its own, to such an extent that even many traditional Catholics are ignorant of and have deprived themselves of the Divine Office, which was experiencing a great rebirth after Pope St. Pius X (1903-1914) and especially in the decade before the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), which crushed the movement with its push to the heretical Dark Side.
Pope St. Pius X, the great Anti-modernist restorer of the Sacred Liturgy according to the principles of the dogmatic Council of Trent, was scandalized that the Divine Office was not being chanted, or even recited, in many Catholic churches around the world. Thus, he started a movement to encourage at least some parishes in each diocese to chant the Hour of Vespers. Even today, and even among those who call themselves traditional Catholics, many are ignorant of the Divine Office and of Pope St. Pius X's directives. Many traditional Catholics never hear any part of the Divine Office, which is the true worship of the Roman Catholic Church, for example, Vespers or the Hour of Terce that precedes the celebration of the Mass. As a result of this ignorance, the Newpopes have tried to get away with corrupting the Rosary, in addition to their corruption of the Mass and the Divine Office.
"Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla's first attempt to destroy the Rosary was not enough for Francis-Bergoglio, who has launched on October 15, 2019 the Robotic Rosary, an electronic device, which, when activated, robotically controls the wearer's use of ten "thematic" Rosaries to be updated each year. One may soon be exposed to the "Environmental Rosary," the "Global Warming Rosary," the "United Nations Rosary," the "Illegal Immigration" Rosary, the "Gay" Rosary, and the like, with different political goals changing for each year. Rejection of the traditional uniformity destroyed in Newchurch the Mass; now that same diabolical technique is being used by Newchurch to destroy the Rosary.
True Catholics, everything the Newchurch and its Newpopes touch goes to Hell. The Modernist heretics at and after the Vatican II Anti-council destroyed in Newchurch the Mass, the Divine Office, the Sacraments, Catholic doctrine, and Catholic morality. At first trying to make Newchurch, founded in 1964 at the Anti-council, like the Protestant heretics, under Francis-Bergoglio Newchurch has sunk further, into outright paganism. The Robotic Rosary is just another example of this fact. Clueless Newchurchers will be enticed to abandon the traditional Rosary for this New Age replacement. Of course, no true Catholic will have anything to do with such blasphemy, any more than they will have anything to do with the New Mess and the Newpopes.
The events in Newrome seem to be getting more bizarre by the moment. The recent ceremony in the Vatican Gardens, previously reported here, was clearly pagan. Francis-Bergoglio personally presided over the blasphemy on October 5, 2019, associated with Vatican III (aka Amazon Synod), which featured smoke-pots, rattles, one naked male figure cum phallo erecto, and two naked female figures, purportedly representing the Blessed Virgin Mary. It was a full frontal assault against the Catholic Church perpetrated by Bergoglio and his Marxist pagan fellow-travelers. The blasphemy continues as the pagan figures are now on display at Santa Maria in Transpontina, a church in Rome just down the street from St. Peter's Basilica.
All this began with the "Unsaint" Newpope JPII-Wojtyla. It was he who presided over numerous scandalous "liturgies," including one having topless female communicants and another having a topless woman reading the Epistle. It was Wojtyla who kissed the infidel Koran. It was Wojtyla who was anointed with cow dung by a pagan Hindu priestess. The connection is obvious to those who have eyes to see and ears to hear. But the clueless Neocons Newchurchers don't see what they prefer not to see. They prefer to live in a fantasy world in which the great Pope St. Pius X would be a close collaborator with the Modernist heretic leader of Vatican II, "Fr." Josef Ratzinger, later to become Newpope Benedict. In fact, St. Pius X would have defrocked Ratzinger in a New York minute and excommunicated him for heresy in less than an hour.
The question is: where are Bernie Fellay and David Pagliarani of the pseudo-traditional Neo-SSPX? They are silent, as dumb as the man in the recent Gospel. Their silence is a corrupt payoff for the "personal prelature" that has been dangled in front of them by perverted Newpopes for two decades. The real question is: will they ever wise up to reality and convert to true traditional Catholicism.
Enraged by Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, among other crimes, protesters tried on October 6, 2019, to burn down the Newcathedral at La Plata, Argentina, 50 kilometres northwest of Buenos Aires, Francis-Bergoglio's Newarchepiscopal seat between 1997 and 2013. The protesters threw Molotov cocktails and human excrement on the Newchurches.
Shockingly, the Newchurch archbishop of La Plata, Victor Emmanuel Fernandez, ordered Newchurchers not to defend their Newchurches, but to let them burn down. He also ordered Newchurchers not to defend their New Order sect against the pagans. He suspended all New Order Messes at the Newcathedral and at other major Newchurches. He condemned any actions that could be interpreted as "Christian resistance" against the pagans. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Crux News Service.]
True Catholics, the fake Newchurch of the New Order, founded by the Vatican II Anti-council in 1964 and currently headed by the Marxist/Modernist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, is almost dead. It is so corrupted by now that it won't even defend itself. After all, what is there to defend: an invalid (phony) New Mess, invalid sacraments, worse-than-Protestant doctrine, and morals fit for pigs? Newchurchers are most certainly not Catholics. Newchurch should close up shop, give its money and real estate to the poor, and let the remaining independent traditional Catholics begin forthwith the work of restoring completely the true Catholic Faith of Jesus Christ.
It must be pure Hell working for Francis-Bergoglio. If you do the right thing, he'll can you to save his own hide. Bergoglio has been running the corrupt Newvatican Bank, as have his Newpopal predecessors. The Bank has been investigated on several occasions by the European Union and was threatened with closure if it didn't stop criminal money-laundering. It is just another part of Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust.
Newvatican's Chief Prosecutor (Promoter of Justice), apparently an honest man, had had enough. He independently conducted a raid on October 1, 2019, of Newvatican's highest department, the Secretariat of State. In the Newvatican of the Newpopes, you are not supposed to prosecute criminals, like paedohopiles and money-launderers, so someone's head had to fall. In this case it was another honest man, Domenico Giani, the head of Newvatican Police. Giani, a twenty-year veteran of the Newvatican Police, was pressured to resign on October 2, 2019, because the raid was allegedly “prejudicial to the dignity of the people involved and to the image of the Gendarmerie." In Francis-Bergoglio's Newvatican that is what you call investigating criminals! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic Herald.]
True Catholics, Newvatican's Secretariat of State works most closely with the Newpope. It is responsible for overseeing suspicious financial transactions and ensuring that Newvatican complies with international financial standards. On the basis of the record, it has been deliberately overlooking such irregularities and crimes, probably with the connivance of Francis-Bergoglio. Under Bergoglio's regime it is usually the innocent who suffer, not the Newchurch criminals. But Bergoglio's luck will run out. One of these days, instead of taking the fall, one of his officials will blow him out of the Newpapacy, just as Benedict-Ratzinger's aide-de-camp Paolo Gabrieli blew that Newpope out of the Newpapacy for paedophile complicity.
Basic Catholic theology requires that for validity of the Most Blessed Sacrament, it is necessary to have valid form, matter, intention, and a priest for the Mass. The form, or text, in Newchurch is invalid because the dogmatic text of the Holy Mass was eliminated in 1969, and a Protestant form, called the "New Mass" (which is not a Mass) substituted. The intention in Newchurch is invalid, because the purpose of the service (no longer a Mass) was changed in 1969 from "a priest celebrating the Sacrifice of the Mass for the living and the dead" to "the people celebrating the memorial of the Lord," the Protestant definition. The "priest" in Newchurch is invalid because in 1968 Newchurch adopted a Protestantized New Ordinal that no longer ordains priests in the Sacrament of Holy Orders, but merely "installs presbyters [elders]," who are not priests, but Protestantized ministers.
Already the matter in Newchurch has been corrupted to invalidity in many places because instead of bread made only from unleavened wheat flower and water, cookies have been corrupted to include one or more invalidating substances (salt, baking powder, butter, cinnamon, and the like). The wineis in many places not the fermented juice of grapes, but invalid Kool-Aid or mere grape juice. Now, at Vatican III (aka Amazon Synod), being held October 6-27, 2019, Francis-Bergoglio is going even further to accept such invalid substances as yuca root instead of bread. It is being proposed that every heretic local Newbishop should be allowed to determine what to use for the Novus Ordo "eucharist." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic Herald.]
True Catholics, Newchurch is wrapped in the Heresy of Oecumenism, or Inculturation, in which Newchurch belief and practice are determined by whatever the local Newchurchers want. Such heresy goes contrary to the teaching of the Sacred Dogmatic Councils, especially the dogmatic Council of Trent. Newchurchers are already idolaters because they worship unconsecrated "bread" and "wine." Thus, talk of "communion" and "eucharistic adoration" in Newchurch.is pure idolatry because Newchurch temples have no valid Mass, no valid matter, no valid intention, and no valid priests. No wonder Newchurch is so obviously devoid of God's grace and is sinking fast into the liturgical, doctrinal, and moral mire.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Is it permitted for Catholics to celebrate Halloween by dressing up in costumes and the like? Or is Halloween based on devil worship and witchcraft?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
The origins of Halloween are rooted deeply in the theology and popular customs of Catholics. Halloween, a contraction of "All Hollows Eve," falls on October 31st because the Feast of All Saints or "All Hallows" falls on November 1st. It was the Irish Catholics who came up with the idea to remember somehow those souls who did not live by the Faith in this life. It became customary for these Irish to bang on pots and pans on All Hallow's Eve to let the damned know that they were not forgotten. In Ireland, then, all the dead came to be remembered.
This practice of dressing up in costumes arose in France during the 14th and 15th centuries. During the horrible bubonic plague, the Black Death, Europe lost half of her population. Artists depicted this reality on walls to remind us of our own mortality. These pictures and representations are known as the "Dance of Death" or "Dance Macabre." These figures were commonly painted on cemetery walls and showed the devil leading a daisy chain of people into the tomb. Sometimes the dance was re-enacted on November 2nd, All Soul's Day, as a living tableau, with people dressed up as the dead.
Halloween can still serve the purpose of reminding us about Hell and how to avoid it. Halloween is also a day to prepare us to remember those who have gone before us in Faith, those already in Heaven and those still suffering in Purgatory. Halloween is a time to let people know about our Catholic roots and significance. Catholic parents who are not comfortable with the worst secular aspects of Halloween, which are admittedly increasing, can avail themselves of alternative activities on that day: family prayer and fasting for the Vigil of All Saints Day, visitations of houses in the garments of non- devilish personae, the reading aloud of stories of the Saints or of seasonal literature such as Edgar Allen Poe's "The Masque of the Red Death" and Washington Irving's "The Legend of Sleepy Hollow", and the playing of seasonal music such as Saint-Saens "Danse Macabre," Modest Moussorgsky's "Night on Bald Mountain," and Sergei Rachmaninoff's "Isle of the Dead."
It is good to keep in mind the Prayer to St. Michael against "Satanam aliosque spiritus malignos qui ad perditionem animarum pervagantur in mundo" [Satan and the other evil spirits who roam in the world for the ruin of souls]. As in all things, parents must be sure to teach their children the proper balance in such matters, erring neither on the side of defect or excess.

For some unfathomable reason, many Neocons and pseudo-traditionalists seemed to be gripped with a perverted fancy that Josef Ratzinger (aka Benedict XVI) was, and should again be, a traditionalist Newpope. The facts show entirely the opposite. The Neocons have forgotten, if they ever knew, that Ratzinger was a leader of the Modernist heretics at the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) and remains to this day a Modernist heretic, steeped in the German anti-Catholic philosophers Emmanuel Kant (1724-1804) and Georg Hegel (1770-1831), who considered everything to be always changing. There are no absolutes (e.g., truth, goodness, beauty); everything is "evolving." Vatican II cribbed directly Hegel's notion of "evolution," shared by his twentieth-century disciple, Josef Ratzinger.
Hegel's (and Benedict-Ratzinger's) philosophy is steeped in Relativism, which is the basic heresy of Modernism. Ratzinger is a true disciple of Pantheism, which holds one is god and is not god. Truth is and is not, being relative. Faith is constantly in flux and is true only for those who accept it as true at that moment they see it as truth, but it changes once the mind comes to another understanding. Ratzinger's philosophy is far worse even that that of the Arch-heretic Martin Luther. It is from the heresy of Modernism that Josef Ratzinger came up with his greatest heretical thinking that he put voted in at Vatican II: "Unica Christi Ecclesia ... subsistit in Ecclesia catholica" [The sole Church of Christ ... subsists in the Catholic Church]. To the contrary, the dogma of the Catholic Church is: "The Roman Catholic Church is (adest) the only Church of Jesus Christ."
So, on the doctrinal side, Josef Ratzinger-Benedict is confirmed lifelong heretic. But now there is further evidence that he is grossly immoral as well. A 2018 investigative report by National Geographic, entitled "Hitler Youth," has confirmed that those in the Hitlerjugend, the youth movement of the Nazi party, who served Hitler fanatically with "ruthlessness and barbarism," as National Geographic describes it: If they were born in 1926 and 1927 (Ratzinger was born in 1927), they were deployed to the Luftwaffe (German Air Force) in February 1943 as Anti-aircraft Assistants. These young men would use real artillery to shoot down Allied planes and pilots, fighting as soldiers for Fuhrer Adolph Hitler and the Nazi Reich Among these Flachhelferin was Josef Ratzinger, the future Newpope Benedict XVI. National Geographic accompanies its report with a photograph of Ratzinger among his fellow Nazi soldiers in front of the Anti-aircraft barracks.
True Catholics, Benedict-Ratzinger was never a traditional Catholic -- and is not one to this day. Moreover, he himself admits his Nazi background in his 1998 book Milestones. Heretical and immoral as Francis-Bergoglio is, at least he makes no bones about it. Ratzinger attempts to cover over his vile background, not only with the Nazis but also as head (prefect) of Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust for some thirty years under the "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla and then under his own regime as Newpope. The Neocons and pseudo-traditionalists need to be a lot wiser about whom they wish for!
One of the tribal leaders of the old Leftist sauvages, Newcardinal Claudio Hummes, now aged 85, has been called out by Francis-Bergoglio to lead the charge at Vatican III (aka Amazon Synod) in Newrome. Hummes, a has-been from the 1970s, has laid out the plan for those too clueless to realize it: married Newchurch presbyters will first come as a norm, and then cometh the simulation of "ordination" for women as deaconesses. Here is a fantastical outline of strategy under the rubric that "delay is deadlier than denial."
All this pain and horror could be prevented if Newchurch and its Newpopes would repent of their heresy, idolatry, blasphemy, and paganism and instead swear Pope St. Pius X's Anti-Modernist Oath to respect Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
What is the Church's moral teaching on smoking? How does the example of presbyters and even popes who have smoked figure into the matter?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
The general moral position would be as so well enunciated by St. Paul, that the body is the "temple of the Holy Ghost" (1 Corinthians 6:19-20/DRV). Therefore, in accordance also with the Fifth Commandment of God, it is immoral to treat God's creation in a grossly negligent and self-destructive way. There can be no doubt that tobacco smoking (and that would include "vaping") is harmful to onself and thus immoral, as would be drunkenness from alcohol, taking certain drugs, and the like.
It is the teaching of the Church that priests, and even popes, are not impeccable; that is, they are just as subject to sin as any other human beings. However, until the second half of the twentieth century, it was not known how lethal smoking is. As you may remember from your traditional Catholic catechism, ignorance is a partially or totally excusing factor in the moral quality of a sin.
The first day of Francis-Bergoglio's Vatican III Anti-council (aka Amazon Synod) has lived up to the dire predictions that Bergoglio's purpose was to paganize his Newchurch of the New Order with an extreme version of the Vatican II Anti-council's Oecumenical Heresy ("we all worship the same gods"; "all religions are equally true"). Vatican II preached the heresy of "inculturation," the introduction into Newchurch services of local customs, like native dancing, native music, and native incantations in place of the universal LatinRite of the Roman Catholic Church.
The Synod at its first session on October 7, 2019, came up with a plan for an Indigenous Mess (Newchurch lost the true Mass in 1969), to incorporate native customs and lingo, called the Amazon Rite, as the first installment in a new "ecclesiastical ecosystem." Thus, in just fifty years Newchurch has gone from the blasphemous in 1969 to the absurd in 2019. There is nothing Catholic in any of this. Moreover, it is heresy against the dogma of the Church, as enunciated by the dogmatic Council of Trent and other Councils of the Catholic Church. Such "development" in a Newchurch of the Absurd was predicted by the cognoscenti by the time Vatican II adjourned in 1965.
Francis-Bergoglio is himself leading the dash to the absurd. He lauded the feathers of an Amazon pagan priest and compared it derisively to one of his Newcardinal's birettas. Thus did he scandalize many. One Italian publication condemned Bergoglio: "We believe that this phrase captures in full the Bergoglio-thought (which is the heart of Modernism), according to which one religion is just as good as another."
The first session was preceded in St. Peter's Archbasilica by Francis-Bergoglio flanked by 17 dancing natives from the Amazon, holding up a fishing net, canoe, and paddles and singing not in Latin, but in vulgar native languages. The natives held up images of Oscar Romero, the Marxist/Communist whom Bergoglio con-anized as an "Unsaint" in 2018. The procession included discredited figures such as presbyter Alex Zanotelli, who some years ago was expelled from his post for incorporating native dress and pagan rituals into the invalid (fake) Novus Ordo "liturgy." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Crux News.]
True Catholics, even Newchurchers seem to be catching on to the absurdity of Francis-Bergoglio and his Newchurch. St. Peter's Square was empty, as was the basilica. When Bergoglio was subsequently denounced for paganism and heresy, his answer was: “Say what you will, we’re moving ahead.” Unrepentant and obstinate heresy carries with it the penalty of excommunication. Yes, a pope (if that is what Bergoglio is) can be excommunicated, and a few in the history of the Church have been.
It seems that now Bergoglio has become completely consumed in paranoia. First, he pontificated that the United States Newchurch, his biggest donor, was disloyal to him. Then he pontificated that several of his own Newcardinals, who called him out for his heretical views according to Christ's specified procedure, were disloyal to him. How, it seems, he thinks that all his Newchurch clergy is against him.
Yet Francis-Bergoglio may not be paranoid after all, but has merely recognized facts, that he has not acted like a true pope, but has preached heretical views, written heretical documents, and even now is preparing to dismantle completely the "sacraments" in Newchurch (which are now invalid anyway, except for Baptism and Matrimony in some cases) during his Vatican III Anti-council, aka Amazon Synod, going on October 6-27, 2019, in Newrome.
On October 5, 2019, Francis-Bergoglio created thirteen Newcardinals. The nasty narcissist could not resist turning what was supposed to be a happy day for these hapless Newcardinals into a public woodshed, just as he has done at past Newvatican Christmas parties for his Newvatican bureaucrats and their families, where he denounced them for not doing his "will." Bergoglio called out those who oppose his heresies -- and he has admitted that there are many in Newchurch who consider him a heretic, particularly in the United States -- as "disloyal." He does not see that by being "disloyal" to him personally, they are being loyal to One Whom they swore to be loyal above all, Jesus Christ. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Tablet.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio went on to denounce his critics as "throwing stones, but hiding their hands." Yet these leaders and members of his own Newchurch have strictly followed the Biblical procedure described by Christ and have done so in the open, not from hiding. The public cries against him as a heretic are obviously getting to him at last. But he has not humbly reconsidered and corrected his heretical actions. No, he has pushed them all the more, most particularly in this Vatican III Anti-council (Amazon Synod). True Catholics have no real option under Biblical and Catholic teaching than to shun Bergoglio entirely and, as St. Paul, commanded: "Tenete traditiones. Stand fast and hold the Traditions (2 Thessalonies 2:14/DRV).
Around this time of year people look for a traditional Catholic calendar for the next year. The calendar that the TRADITIO Fathers recommend is based upon the most traditional form of the Roman Rite, before the untraditional "modernizations" of 1951, 1956, 1960, and 1962. This calendar is the one that corresponds to the fully traditional version of the Missale Romanum and the Breviarium Romanum in four volumes.
Immaculate Heart of Mary Church Publications produces this best and most complete full-color calendar, both in the calendar's daily boxes and in the religious art that accompanies each month. It contains full information about all feasts, commemorations, votive Masses, fasts and abstinence, ember days, and more. In the back matter, there is excellently-summarized information about indulgences, fast and abstinence, and other practical matters.
The cost is $12.00 for a single copy, with no shipping or handling charges. For further information, click on the TRADITIO Network's Traditional Liturgical Calendar department.
This may be a first for Newchurch. In the Vatican Gardens on October 3, 2019, in preparation for the notorious Amazon Synod to be held October 6-27 in Newrome, a ceremony was staged, with Francis-Bergoglio presiding, in which "Mother Earth" was worshipped in a pagan tree-planting ritual. Participants prostrated themselves in adoration and then danced before carved images of two seminude nude pregnant women, one of which was supposed to represent the Blessed Virgin Mary. Bergoglio was so overcome that he merely gawked and laid aside his prepared remarks.
Francis-Bergoglio's Amazon Synod is equivalent to a Vatican III Anti-council, meant to destroy any remnant of Scripture and Tradition in his Newchurch of the New Order. Synods are cheaper to hold and easier for the Newpope to control. Bergoglio has learned well from the Protestants, who, since the Arch-heretic Martin Luther, have held synods that have approved practices such as divorce with remarriage and homosexual acts which are patently contrary to the teaching of Christ and His Apostles.
The Newpapally-approved pagan ceremony was staged by the Global Catholic [Sic] Climate Movement, a radical political organization. The pagan nature of the ritual was contained in its very title: "pago a la tierra,” a pagan offering to "Mother Earth" common among indigenous (pagan) peoples in some parts of South America. Updated to conform to the radical politics of "global warming," the participants carried bowls of dirt from different places around the world, each symbolizing a different issue from "ecology." Finally, a pagan priestess gave Bergoglio a black ring representing pagan black magic and murderous Marxist/Modernist Newjesuit "Liberation Theology," which Bergoglio proceeded to "bless." One of the semi-nude statues was presented to Bergoglio, who "blessed" it. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio is not to be taken seriously. He certainly isn't Catholic, or even Christian. He has become a pagan participating in a pagan fertility ritual. Newchurch, founded in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council to replace the Catholic Church, has by now gone well beyond Protestantizing itself to pure paganism. No true Catholic can have anything to do with the Newpopes or their Newchurch on pain of violating the First Commandment of God.
Without notice on October 1, 2019, the top prosecutor, the Promoter of Justice, of the Newvatican City State raided the offices of Newvatican's highest department, the Secretariat of State. Contrary to what Francis-Bergoglio has been telling the world for the last six years, the financial crimes of Newchurch, which led the Newvatican Bank previously to be placed under suspension by the European Union, have continued unabated under the Bergoglio's regime. Police removed documents and electronic devices by the armful. Five Newchurch officials so far have been dismissed.
It was the Secretariat of State under Newcardinal Pietro Parolin that should have been in charge of the investigation, but Newchurch is so corrupt that the prosecutor took over directly. The raids confirmed the suspicions of Newvatican's former auditor general, Libero Milone, who was getting too close to the truth and was thwarted and canned in 2017 by Francis-Bergoglio. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
True Catholics, the TRADITIO Network has been the only source that has, from the very beginning, connected Newchurch's sex crimes with its financial crimes, calling it Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. The sex gets the most coverage, but case after case of embezzlement by Newchurch of its members donations have been exposed by civil prosecutors and the press: from the Novus Ordo "nuns" who stole school donations to run off to Las Vegas and gamble it away, to the presbyter-pastor who endorsed one million dollars of his congregation's donations over to his personal account. The Newchurch of the New Order, currently headed by Francis-Bergoglio, is sick unto death. No wonder donations to Newchurch have fallen precipitously and attendance at the invalid (phony) Novus Ordo service around the world are heading in many countries below ten per cent.
It wasn't enough that the Newchurch of the New Order discarded the great Feast of the Dedication of St. Michael the Archangel on September 29, 2019. Traditionally, the Catholic Church has recognized that feast of the greatest Angel, who stood by God and thrust Lucifer into Hell for eternity, as a Double Feast of the First Class, the highest feast the Catholic Church celebrates. No, Francis-Bergoglio had to use this day as a mere "photo opportunity" for one of his Marxist causes.
Francis-Bergoglio's invalid (phony) "New Mess" on the feastday was not simulated in veneration of God's Archangel, mentioned by name three times in Sacred Scripture, but for illegal invaders, whom Bergoglio has tried to force European leaders to take into their countries. Some have, and as a result their countries have experienced a dramatic increase in crime and public vagrancy. It is no surprise that Bergoglio has not admitted these invaders into his own Vatican City State, to pollute the streets and sidewalks there and to attack the tourists in his own backyard. No, that would mean a loss of revenue for Bergoglio's financially-sinking Modernist empire.
Francis-Bergoglio unveiled the six-metre tall highly-politicized sculpture, blasphemously entitled "Angels Unaware," in St. Peter's Square on September 29, 2019, featuring illegal invaders today. He misquoted St. Paul's Epistle to the Hebrews and mixed up humans with angels. Bergoglio gave a Novus Ordo "homily" not on St. Michael the Archangel, but on the Marxist device called "human development," in which he ordered: "Welcome, protect, promote and integrate." He denounced individual initiative and lauded socialist "globalization." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Crux News Service.]
True Catholics, that Francis-Bergoglio is a Marxist, there can be no doubt. He is the world's loudest promoter of the political philosophy that is condemned by the Catholic Church. Pope Pius XII attached to promoters of Marxism/Communism the penalty of excommunication. That doesn't stop Bergoglio. He isn't a Catholic and has publicly called Marxist atheists his "best friends."
A worldwide coalition of Newbishops, presbyters, and laymen from Newchurch on October 1, 2019, sent to Francis-Bergoglio a tract in which they call his Instrumentum Laboris, a draft document for his Pan-Amazonian Synod to be held October 6-27, 2019, in Newrome, an heretical document. This document has been denounced even by Bergoglio's own Newcardinals. It appears that Bergoglio is using the occasion of this synod to introduce these heresies into his Newchurch as doctrines, among them the following: [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by La Nuovo Bussola Quotidiano.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's methodology here is very similar to that used by the "Unsaint" Newpope Paul VI-Montini and his henchman, presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, the Chief Architect of the New Order, to introduce heresies, but only gradually, so that there would not be too much opposition at once. It was this methodology that turned the Roman Catholic Church into the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order. For example, if Catholics in 1964 had once Sunday attended the Traditional Latin Mass (really the untraditional Mess of 1962) one Sunday, and the very next Sunday had been faced all at once with the all-English or all-Swahili or all-Russian "New Mess," there might have been a substantial public outcry.
So, Montini/Bugnini introduced the Protestant/Masonic/Pagan changes little by little over a period of five years. As a result, when the Novus Ordo Mess was completed in 1969, there was little opposition voiced -- although according to the Newbishops' own secret survey, one-third of Catholics did walk out within five years of the introduction of the invalid New Mess. Newchurchers now are completely oblivious to this history and its consequences, as Newchurch and the Newpopes, like good Marxist/Modernist, have deliberately dumbed them down so that they will be more pliable in accepting the heresies and manipulation.
Presbyter James Martin has become notorious for his advocacy of the LGBTXYZ radical agenda for the Newchurch of the New Order. He has been denounced even by Newchurch bishops for his addresses, including his own, Charlie Chaput, Newarchbishop of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. After Martin gave one of his objectionable addresses at a Philadelphia university, Chaput declared:
Due to the confusion caused by his statements and activities regarding same-sex related (LGBT) issues, I find it necessary to emphasize that Father Martin does not speak with authority on behalf of the [New]church, and to caution the faithful about some of his claims.
Yet this notorious heretic was openly received by Francis-Bergoglio for a thirty-minute private audience in Newvatican. Normally, Newvatican does not comment on private audiencess, but Bergoglio wanted to make sure that the world knew that he approved of homosexuality. The topic of presbyter Martin's meeting was LGBTXYZ advocacy, not how to convert such people from the immoral act that Biblically constitutes "One of the Four Sins that Cry out to God for Retribution." Newvatican even published a photograph the notorious presbyter and Bergoglio. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Catholic Herald.]
True Catholics, the ongoing debate whether Francis-Bergoglio is a valid pope is insignificant when one asks the question, Is Bergoglio even a Christian? The evidence is in the negative. Bergoglio is perfectly comfortable being on an equal footing with Jews who reject Christ and Mohammedans who venerate a murderous general, not to speak of pagans who worship elephants in India and a fat squatting man in the Orient. He openly admits that, unlike the Catholic Church, he won't judge sodomy. Thus, under the Bible and Catholic theology, a true Catholic has a duty to shun Bergoglio and his heretical Newchurch of the New Order.
Newchurch bishop Athanasius Schneider poses as conservative, but I hear more reports here that he is a shill, conscripted by the Marxist/Modernists to string along the Neocon Protestantized Newchurchers while Francis-Bergoglio hatches his Communist and pagan revolution in his Newchurch of the New Order.
Schneider is a newbishop in Kazakhstan, a country where the percentage of Newchurchers is only one per cent. Most Kazakhs are either Muslim infidels or Eastern Orthodox schismatics. At least the latter count as Christian, whereas Newchurch is now being transformed from the Protestant denomination it became in 1964 to a pagan and Communist horde, governed by a "gay" culture club, as even Francis-Bergoglio himself admits.
Schneider is not even one of the four Newdiocesan Newbishops in Kazakhstan. He is only an auxiliary Newbishop. He isn't even a Catholic bishop because he never consecrated as a Catholic bishop under the valid Sacrament of Holy Orders, but merely "installed" as an overseer appointed by Francis-Bergoglio under the invalid New Ordinal of 1968. Why does a country having almost no Newchurchers need an auxiliary bishop? Hence can be explained Schneider's otherwise puzzling peregrinations around the world to pick up change from Neocon Newchurchers for speaking at their "conferences." Now Francis-Bergoglio has put a stop to that, placing Schneider under house arrest in Astana.
Schneider is a Newbishop who offers the New Mess. He is no traditionalist, not even a pseudo-traditionalist of the Half New Order Vatican II Mess of 1962. He dedicates himself to extending hope to the Neocon Protestant party in Newchurch as Bergoglio moves in to liquidate it. Whether deliberately or not, Francis-Bergoglio is using him to forestall a revolt in Newchurch while he implements his increasingly broad and public Marxist/Modernist programme. That is Schneider's function, his only function, to perpetrate a hoax upon the clueless Neocon Newchurchers.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Is it true that Newchurch has suppressed the Feast of St. Michael the Archangel and the other Archangels, along with many feasts of the Blessed Virgin Mary?
The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.
In essence, yes. September 29 is the Feast of the Dedication of St. Michael the Archangel. It is the highest feast that the Church recognizes, traditionally a Double of the First Class. The pre-eminence of the Holy Angels, particularly the Prince of the Angels, St. Michael the Archangel, is pointed out to us at every Mass. In the Confiteor, which the Novus Ordo has stricken out, we confess to St. Michael the Archangel before any other Saints. That rank is not happenstance, but reflects the order of God's creation. For, as the Psalm tells us, God created man "a little less than the angels" (Psalms 8:6/DRV).
St. Michael appears in Sacred Scripture in the Book of the Prophet Daniel (12:1), in the Epistle of St. Jude the Apostle (9), and in the Apocalypse of St. John the Apostle (12:7-9). Michael is referred to as "saint," simply meaning "holy," and as "archangel" because the early Church Fathers placed him over all the angels as prince of the Seraphim, who are the highest of the nine choirs of angels, glorifying God continually in His immediate presence. How appropriately the Church invokes St. Michael's intercession in the combat against "Satan and the other evil spirits who roam through the world, seeking the ruin of souls."
Further proof of the anti-Catholic nature of the Newchurch of the New Order can be found in the fact that after the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), the feast of this greatest Archangel was removed from the calendar and replaced with a general "archangels" feast and demoted in rank. The Double Major feasts of the other Archangels, St. Gabriel (March 24) and St. Raphael (October 24), were suppressed.
It is also quite revealing, given Newchurch's ongoing Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, that the Gospel for the traditional Feast of the Dedication of St. Michael Archangel was suppressed as well. The Gospel for this high feast is the one in which Our Lord condemns those who would harm innocent children, from popes on down: "But he that shall scandalize one of these little ones that believe in Me, it were better for him that a mill-stone should be hanged about his neck, and that he should be drowned in the depth of the sea" (Matthew 18:6/DRV).
After Newcardinal George Pell, Francis-Bergoglio's Chief Financial Officer, was convicted of sex crimes against choir boys in his own Newcathedral, Newchurch in Australia has been swamped with almost 1,000 additional lawsuits. And this is only in Victoria province, the second largest state in Australia; there are five others. The government has now allowed victims to sue Newchurch and revisit unfair settlements made under Newchurch's in-house compensation schemes. One victim stated: "They [Newchurch] actually don’t care. Between the '60s and '90s and the current day, they actually forgot about parishioners. And they forgot about the kids. It was more about money, power, control and [their] standing in the community."
These cases include child rape perpetrated at Melbourne's Newseminary and by the Neo-Christian Brothers, Neo-Marists, Neo-Society of St Vincent de Paul, and Neo-Presentation Sisters. as well as rampant cover-ups. As a result, Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch in Australia is beginning to topple financially. The Victoria Supreme Court is now considering financial compensation from convicted paedophile presbyters, Newbishops, and Newdioceses. Newcardinal Pell has been hit with yet another suit. Newchurch in Australia is sinking, but it was recently revealed that it owns 9,000,000,000 U.S. dollars' worth of properties in Victoria state alone. Melbourne Newarchbishop's mansion has been put on the auction block. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by The Age of Victoria, Australia.]
True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch is being hit right between the eyes for their Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. Legislatures and courts in countries around the world are ripping off the cloak of secrecy and under-the-table payoffs for victims' silence. Short statutes of limitation are being repealed. Bergoglio's Newvatican reported that it is now financially under water, as donations to Peter's Pence and other such scams has dried up. Northern European Newchurchers are refusing to pay the Church tax. It has been a long time in coming, but the corrupt Newchurch of the New Order is finally paying the price for suppressing the true Catholic Faith as it became, in 1964, a Protestant sect worse than most of the mainline Protestant sects.
