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 the 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 the 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.
