State of Michigan Releases Its Newchurch Paedophile Presbyter Report -- and It's a Shocker!
In just This One U.S. State 770 Newchurch Paedophile Presbyters and 1,246 Child Victims Were Identified

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Dana Nessel

Michigan State Attorney General Dana Nessel
Announces that a Two-year "Aggressive and Relentless"
Investigation of Newchurch
Has Uncovered 770 Paedophile Presbyters and 1,246 Child Victims
One-third of the State's Investigation Remains to Be Completed
Several of the Presbyters Escaped to Other States
Or to Foreign Countries
From Which They Are in the Process of Being Expedited
And Michigan Is just One of 50 U.S. States

According to Francis-Bergoglio & Co., Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust is supposed to be under control. But that's not what a two-year Attorney General's investigation into Newchurch sex crimes in the U.S. State of Michigan has proven. Already a shocking 454 presbyter paedophiles and 811 child victims have been identified. Two of the seven Newdioceses remain to be investigated, yet another one-third of the total. In addition to the Attorney General's investigation, the state’s hot line uncovered an additional 316 paedophile presbyters and 435 child victims. Thus, a total of 770 paedophile presbyters and 1,246 child victims have been identified, with still a third of the investigation yet to go.

Michigan Attorney General Dana Nessel has promised: “We are committed to ensuring that every case of sexual abuse and assault is thoroughly reviewed and that whenever we are able to pursue justice for a victim, we do so aggressively and relentlessly.” In prosecuting that goal, search warrants were executed against all seven of Michigan's Newchurch dioceses, and the Attorney General’s office confiscated almost four million documents.

The crimes charged against the Newchurch presbyters include first- and second-degree criminal sexual assault, aggravated assault, and rape. Several of the presbyters are in the process of being extradited from other states and foreign countries, to which they escaped. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Michigan Live.]

True Catholics, the number of Newchurch presbyters involved and the number of children raped, sodomized, and assaulted is mind-boggling. And Michigan is just one of fifty U.S. states. All of the Newpopes are responsible for allowing child predators to escape punishment, but Francis-Bergoglio seems to be even in public denial about the fact of what is going on. Oh, yes, he'll make a few carefully-staged statements, but he does essentially nothing. It is to his condemnation that he culpably ignores the terse Roman dictum: "Facta, Non Verba" (freely: "actions speak louder than words").

DOUBLE FEAST OF THE SECOND CLASS

Traditional Painting of the Virgin Mary Was Miraculously Found Intact
After Everything Else Burned up in the San Gabriel Mission Fire

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
'La Dolorosa'

The Only Surviving Relic
From the Fire Likely Set by Anarchist Brigands
On July 11, 2020
At the San Gabriel Archangel Mission
Where Padre Junipero Serra
Founder of the California Mission Chain
Personally Celebrated Mass
Is the Painting "La Dolorosa"
Depicting Our Mother of Sorrows
Miraculously Found on Her Feastday, September 15

Although the traditional altar of Mission San Gabriel Archangel, at which Franciscan Padre Junipero Serra. founder of the California Missions, himself celebrated the Traditional Latin Mass, was destroyed by a fire on July 11, 2020, the late eighteenth-century painting entitled "La Dolorosa," the Mater Dolorosa, Our Mother of Sorrows, has been found intact in the rubble, which destroyed virtually everything else.

Miraculously, the "La Dolorosa" painting was found on September 15, the traditional feastday of the Seven Dolors of the Blessed Virgin Mary. It is the only relic to survive the fire, which occurred just before the 250th anniversary of the mission in 2021. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the San Gabriel Valley Tribune.]

The mission was the original site of what later became one of the great cities of the world, El Pueblo de Nuestra Señora la Reina de los Ángeles, the Town of Our Lady, Queen of the Angels, commonly known secularly as Los Angeles. Most Los Angeleans, including even many once-Catholic Hispanics, are ignorant of the fact that their city was dedicated to the Queen of the Angels.

True Catholics, the fire is still under investigation. It is suspected to have been set by anti-Catholic anarchists, who detest Fr. Serra and his charitable work among the native Indians of California. But it seems that, in this case, Our Lady has had the last word against the likely anarchist brigands.

Australia's Royal High Commission Finds Newchurch Guilty
States that Newpopes and Their Officials Colluded in Paedophile Crimes

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Australian Royal Commission

The Australian Royal Commission Has Found
After an Extensive Investigation
That Newchurch Officials Like Francis-Bergoglio
Newcardinal George Pell, and Others
Knew that Their Newbishops and Presbyters
Were Raping, Sodomizing, and Otherwise
Sexually Assaulting Children as Young as Six
And Did Nothing About It

Australia's Royal Commission has found, after an extensive investigation, that Newchurch officials, like Francis-Bergoglio, Newcardinal George Pell, and others, knew that their Newbishops and presbyters were raping, sodomizing, and otherwise sexually assaulting children as young as six years of age and did nothing about it. These Newchurch officials knew about the crimes many years before Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust was exposed publicly in 2002.

On October 20, 2020, reports were published by the Royal Commission, Australia's highest investigative body. It found in one case that a Newmonsignor covered up for a presbyter who had sexually assaulted numerous altar boys. The presbyter was asked to attend one psychiatric session and then was returned to Newchurch duty by the Newmonsignor. The Royal Commission concluded that the Newmonsignor sought to protect Newchurch and the criminal presbyter, but failed to report the presbyter's crimes to the police. This case is representative of many other similar cases. The presbyter himself had sexually assaulted 35 boys aged between 6 and 14.

True Catholics, the Royal Commission found that "no steps were taken to protect the welfare of the children in the [Newchurch] diocese." This is the epitaph for the corrupt and criminal Newchurch of the New Order, led by the Newpopes since the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965). The report is all any true Catholic needs to know to shun entirely the Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

Fears Grow in Newchurch that Its German Newbishops
Will Go into Schism from Francis-Bergoglio and Go Protestant

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Francis-Bergoglio & Lutheran Priestess

Francis-Bergoglio Is Already a Protestant Heretic
And Unquestionably a Modernist Heretic as Well
Here He Gives the "Kiss of Peace"
At a Lutheran Service to a Priestess
Bergoglio Is Not Concerned that the German Newchurch
May Go into Protestant Schism from His Newchurch
But He Is Afraid of the Power and Money
That He Would Lose in a Schism

The Newbishops of Germany have spurned Francis-Bergoglio and have determined to engage in condemned "intercommunion," that is, the sharing of the fake cookies and Kool-Aid with the Protestant heretics. Bergoglio's Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith have rejected the practice and declared that Newchurchers and Protestants cannot attend each other's services. In reality, Newchurch is already heretical, Protestant and Modernist, but it can't recognize that fact; otherwise, it would lose power and money. Even the Newpopes themselves have officially attended and participated in Protestant services.

Rainer Woelki, Newcardinal of Cologne, Germany, has openly spoken of schism and the creation of a German National Church, separated from the Newchurch of the New Order. Bergoglio is suffering the natural consequences of his own heresy. He has granted Newbishops the power to make up their own doctrine and has thereby created doctrinal anarchy within his own Newchurch. So, if the German Newchurchers want to worship with Protestants, so be it. If the German Newchurchers want to swill the fake cookies and Kool-Aid with the Protestants, so be it. If the German Newchurchers want to recognize divorce and civil sodomite unions, so be it. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

True Catholics, the problem for Francis-Bergoglio is not the Protestant and Modernist doctrine and services. He is already worse than Protestant and is a Modernist heretic through and through, as are all the Newpopes. Bergoglio's concern, if he in fact has any, is that he will lose power and money as a result. At his October 7, 2020, general audience, he didn't even raise the issue. After all, the whole notion of every country (or Newdiocese or Newparish) making up its own doctrine is in accord with Bergoglio's own "Synodal Way," deriving from the Newchurch synods of bishops that he has engineered. It has taken almost 500 years, but the Arch-heretic Martin Luther won after all -- except with the true (traditional) Catholic bishops, priests, and laypeople operating outside the structure of the heretic Newchurch of the New Order.


OCTOBER 25, 2020 - OUR LORD JESUS CHRIST, KING
DOUBLE FEAST OF THE FIRST CLASS

Francis-Bergoglio Has Publicly Condoned Sodomy
Many of His Newbishops Are Now Openly Calling Him a Heretic

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Francis-Bergoglio

Francis-Bergoglio Has Come out for Sodomite Unions
And All Hell Has Broken Lose in Newchurch
Several of His Own Newbishops Have Openly
Broken with His Deviant Anti-Catholic Teaching
Newchurchers Are Boycotting His Collections
Mired in Embezzlement and Corruption
Even Newvatican's Own Auditor
Has Publicly Proclaimed
That Newchurch Is on the Verge of Bankruptcy

It seems that the Marxist/Modernist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio just keeps taking step after step into the abyss. He has already been implicated in paedophilia and embezzlement, and now he is preaching outright immorality by openly condoning sodomy. This should be no real surprise, as Bergoglio has already said that he cannot judge sodomy and has condoned the rampant crimes of sodomy against children and others by his Newclergy. Sodomy is one of the four Biblical Sins that Cry out to Heaven for Retribution.

Bergoglio took the opportunity of a propaganda video Francesco released October 21, 2020, to "stand up for" the passage of "civil-union laws" for homosexual "couples." He went on to call such sodomite unions a "family." He recently blessed two "married" homosexuals who were raising children (God only knows whence they came!). Yet in his own 2013 book, the year in which he became Newpope of the Newchurch of the New Order, Bergoglio called such gravely-immoral arrangements an "anthropological regression" and said that he would follow Catholic teaching. Obviously, he has seriously regressed into the Exterior Darkness. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register]

It is becoming clear to even the most clueless of Newchurchers that Bergoglio is not a Catholic. In fact, he is a virulent anti-Catholic. With his latest pronouncement condoning a great moral evil, even several of his Newbishops are now publicly calling him a heretic. Wrote Newbishop Thomas Tobin on his Providence, Rhode Island, Newdiocese's official web page:

The [New]pope’s statement clearly contradicts what has been the long-standing teaching of the Church about same-sex unions. The Church cannot support the acceptance of objectively immoral relationships.... The legalization of their civil unions, which seek to simulate holy matrimony, is not admissible.

Joseph Strickland, Newbishop of Tyler, Texas, broadcasted on radio that Bergoglio's statement is "confusing and very dangerous. The [New]church is weak. The [New]church is not clear."

True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio started off his Newpapacy as a Marxist/Modernist Newjesuit. He admitted that he kept Communist books with him at the Newseminary that he was attending and doted on his Marxist teachers. His gross immorality flows inevitably from such a beginning. As the Latin aphorism has it: finis origine pendet (the end depends upon the beginning). Paedophilia, embezzlement, hypocrisy, syncretism, idolatry, blasphemy, sacrilege, and all his other associations are the natural outcome. No true Catholic can have anything to do with such an apostate or his apostate Newchurch.

Newchurch's Presbyter Shortage Significantly Worsens
Few Want to Enter Newchurch Seminaries, Particularly in Europe and the Americas

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
CAPTION

What if Newchurch Dished out a Mess
And there Was No Presbyter to "Do" It?
That Is the Situation in Which
Newchurch Is Now Finding Itself
Particularly in Europe and the Americas
Very Few Men Wish to Enter a Newseminary
And Far More Presbyters Are Dying Off
Than Can Be Replaced

Francis-Bergoglio was hit between the eyes with the latest worldwide statistics for Newchurch. In a report issued on October 18, 2020, by Newvatican for the year 2018, the last year being reported on, the total number of presbyters in the world decreased significantly, particularly in Europe, North America, and South America. Now there is only one presbyter for every 3,210 Newchurchers. Very few men wish to enter a Newseminary, and far more presbyters are dying off than can be replaced, and that differential will only increase in future years.

Causes for the disinterest in Newchurch "vocations" are varied. Some men don't wish to be sodomized by presbyters, who have allowed to commit crimes of sexual assault with impunity under the Newpopes. Other men consider Newchurch not to be the Catholic Church any longer and view what it does as worse than Protestant. Other men consider Francis-Bergoglio to be not a Catholic, but a Marxist/Modernist, even a Communist, and do not want to be associated with his corrupt Newchurch. The number of women religious has also declined significantly, with Europe and the Americans showing the greatest drop. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Reporter.]

True Catholics, another statistic frightening to Newchurch is the fact that the Americas have shown a catastrophic drop in the number of teachers of catechism to children. This statistic explains why so many Newchurch children, not to speak of adults, know nothing about the Faith. There is no indication that any of these figures will turn around. In fact, Newchurch, like the Anglican Church, may be all but dead by the end of the decade, as the number of clergy continues to drop, and replacements are few and far between.

Neo-SSPX Caught Harboring a Priest-presbyter Paedophile
Now Charged by French Police with Nineteen Crimes against Children

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Bernie Fellay & David Pagliarani

Bernie Fellay (Left) & David Pagliarani
Leaders of the Neo-SSPX
Which Broke with Archbishop Lefebvre's
Traditional Catholic Principles
And Moved to Join the Heretic Newchurch
Are Now up to Their Necks in Scandal
The Neo-SSPX Was Caught
Harboring a Priest-presbyter
Who Has Now Been Charged by French Prosecutors
With Nineteen Crimes of Paedophilia
Some Involving Children 14 and Younger
The Neo-SSPX Has Been Trying to Suppress
Circulation of the Story in the Media
But the Scandal Has Circulated
All over France -- and the World

As the Neo-Society of St. Pius X has grown closer to the heretic Newchurch of the New Order, its own morality has been corrupted by the close contact. As the Latin aphorish has it, "Qui cum canibus concumbunt, cum pulicibus surgent [Those who sleep together with dogs will get up with fleas]. First of all, it should be noted that the Neo-SSPX, led by Bernie Fellay and his puppet Davide Pagliarani, is not Archbishop Lefebvre's original traditional Catholic SSPX; it is now a Newchurch satellite.

A report came out in September 2020 that the headquarters church of the Neo-SSPX in the United States is under investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation for involvement in sex crimes. Neo-SSPX clergy are currently being interviewed by FBI agents, who accuse the Neo-SSPX of not being transparent and cooperative.

Then, on October 12, 2020, a report came from France that a Neo-SSPX priest-presbyter by the name of Pierre de Maillard has been arrested in La Roche-sur-Yon on charges of sex crimes against nineteen child victims and is being incarcerated pending criminal trial. At the time of his arrest, Maillard was being harbored in a Neo-SSPX retreat house. Neo-SSPX leaders were aware of Maillard's crimes and, as Francis-Bergoglio does to paedophile criminals in his Newchurch, harbored Maillard for "prayer and penance" before he was expected to be returned to the Neo-SSPX's active ministry.

Maillard is being charged for "rapes by a person in authority, rapes of minors under 15 years of age, and sexual assaults on minors under the age of 15 and over 15 by a person having authority, and corruption of minors." The crimes were charged to have been committed between 2006 and 2020. Meanwhile, the Neo-SSPX headquarters in Menzingen, Switzerland, has been accused of trying to suppress media coverage of the scandal. French prosecutors acted so fast that Neo-SSPX leaders had no time to formulate their own propaganda statement for Sunday Masses. They have not mentioned the scandal on their international web site, nor did Pagliarani mention the scandal in an interview that took place four days later after Maillard was arrested. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the French newspaper Le Dauphiné.]

True Catholics, as Newchurch sinks into a moral abyss, the Fellay-Pagliarani Neo-SSPX is following. Neo-SSPX scandal has now crossed the Atlantic from the U.S. to France. As if the affaire de Maillard weren't bad enough in itself, it is clear to observers that the Neo-SSPX is trying to hide and obfuscate using its typical Neo-SSPX propaganda machine. The Neo-SSPX is now just as morally reprobate as Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch. The saintly Archbishop Lefebvre, who founded the original, traditional Catholic Society of St. Pius X, from which his successor, Bernie Fellay, diverged after the Archbishop's death in 1991, turned the organization into a handmaiden of the New Order sect that the Archbishop himself so strongly condemned as "not Catholic." Now it is the Neo-SSPX itself that has become "not Catholic" as well.

U.S. Newbishops Caught Funding Pro-abortion/Pro-gay Presidential Candidate
By Laundering Collection Money through Its Marxist "Campaign for Human Development"

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Newchurch Campaign for Human Development

Marxist/Modernist Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch
Has Given up Any Pretense to Being Religious
It Is a Purely Secular Political Organization, Now Funding Marxist Candidates
The U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops Is Laundering Collections
Through Its Marxist Political Arm, "Campaign for Human Development"
Which Has Been Funneling Millions of Dollars Donated to Charity
Instead to Supporting the 2020 Leftist Candidate for U.S. President
Who is a Public Supporter of Abortion and Government Funding of Abortion
As Well As Homosexuality
In fact, the Candidate, Who Claims to Be "Catholic"
Officially "Married" Two Gay Men

In addition to being anti-Catholic, apostate, and immoral, Newchurch is fraudulently hypocritical. First, the Newpope's Peter's Pence, supported by contributions to special collections at Newparishes, has been exposed as a scam, because its proceeds do not go to support charities, but to fund the Newvatican bureaucracy and its leaders, who have been caught in rampant embezzlement for personal aggrandizement. Francis-Bergoglio's scam charity is being investigated by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation, and the 300 U.S. Newchurch bishops are being sued in court for fraud.

Bergoglio continues to run a paedophile operation out of his headquarters in the Casa Santae Martae Hilton. He allows funds of Newchurchers donated to charity to be embezzled by his Newcardinals into private pockets. And he has taken criminal action against none of them. At worst they get a slap on the risk and lose their scarlet.

Now it has been exposed that the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops (USCCB) is funneling millions of dollars donated to charity instead to supporting the 2020 Leftist candidate for U.S. President, who is a public supporter of abortion and government funding of abortion, as well as homosexuality. In fact, the candidate, who claims to be a "Catholic," officially "married" two gay men.

The fact is that Newchurch is not a religious organization. Under the last three Newpapacies it has become a political organization. As such, it should lose its tax exemption. Newbishops are now hacks for the Marxist/Modernist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio. His latest encyclical letter, "Fratelli tutti," is not religious, but a Leftist political screed, pure and simple, which would have Pope Pius XII and his Catholic predecessors turning over in their graves.

The Christian Newswire reports that the USCCB, headquartered in Washington, D.C., has been "caught providing millions of dollars to a network of community organizers that are directly and publicly involved in an effort to elect former vice president Joseph Biden as the next president of the United States." The USCCB's Catholic [Sic] Campaign for Human Development, already exposed as a Marxist, organization, is being used as its money-laundering arm to funnel funds to organizations that are dedicated to electing the Leftist ex U.S. Vice President, who is currently involved in his own scandal, in which he and members of his family have been caught extorting money from foreign governments under color of office. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Christian Newswire.]

True Catholics, a few U.S. Newbishops are trying to stand up to the monolithic USCCB to no avail. Newchurch is at this point so corrupt that a few feeble voices are simply overrun by the vast USCCB progaganda machine, funded in Newparish collections by oblivious Newchurchers. But the heavy arm of the U.S. Internal Revenue Service may finally become involved, because what the USCCB is doing so egregiously violates IRS regulations, which prohibit any religious organization from "engaging in or supporting partisan political activities."

A Reader Asks: "Why Are Some of the Psalms Divided into Parts
When Used for Chanting or Reciting Divine Office?"

From: James
Divine Office

When the Divine Office Is Chanted or Recited
Some of the Longer Psalms Are Divided into Smaller Parts
Psalm 118 (Beati Immaculati) Prayed on Sundays
Is, for Example, Divided into Eleven Parts
From Prime through None
The Divine Office Is the Most Important Prayer of the Church
Of Which Holy Mass Forms a Part
Usually after the Morning Hour of Terce
Laypeople Can Pray Part or All of the Divine Office
And Be Richly Rewarded with Indulgences

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

In the file entitled "Arrangement of the Psalms" in the Traditional Mass, Divine Office & Sacraments department of the TRADITIO Network, certain Psalms chanted or recited at Divine Office have numbers in parentheses after them. Could you explain what these numbers represent?

THE TRADITIO FATHERS REPLY.

Some of the Psalms are quite long. In such cases, for the purposes of chanting or reciting the Divine Office, they are divided into parts, each of which is treated as an individual "psalm" for the purposes of reciting the Office. For example, on Sundays, Psalm 118 (Beati Immaculati), a Psalm of 176 verses, is divided into eleven parts over the hours of Prime, Terce, Sext, and None.

A Reader Asks: "What Does a Newchurch Presbyter Need to Do
In Order to Leave Newchurch and Celebrate the Traditional Latin Mass Validly?"

From: Roger
Competing Altars

A Newchurch Presbyter Cannot Simply Decide
To Turn His Back on the Novus Ordo Banquet Table
And Decide Willy Nilly to "Do" the "Latin Mass"
Newchurch Is an Anti-Catholic Heretical Sect
And Has Not Ordained Valid Priests since 1968
Merely "Installed" Presbyter-Ministers Like the Protestants
So a Presbyter Must Abjure (Recant) His Heresy
Before a Traditional Catholic Priest
According to the Traditional Catholic Rituale Romanum
Only Then May He Approach
A Traditional Catholic Bishop or Seminary
For a Time in Study and Preparation
To Be Ordained for the First Time
Otherwise, His "Masses" Remain Invalid

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

We have at our neighboring Newparish a man who was ordained under the Newchurch (Novus Ordo sect). After a few years there he refused to celebrate the New Mess and is, therefore, being dismissed. Since then he has been celebrating the "Latin Mass" at his residence, where a few locals started attending. Recently, however, we were told us that this man must be "re-ordained" in the traditional Sacrament of Holy Orders in order to celebrate the Traditional Latin Mass; otherwise, his Masses remain invalid.

What does this presbyter to return to the true Catholic Church need to do and how should he go about doing it? Does this presbyter need to be "re-ordained"?

THE TRADITIO FATHERS REPLY.

For all his good intentions, this man is not a priest, but a presbyter (minister). The reason is that on June 18, 1968, the Newchurch of the New Order replaced the traditional, valid Sacrament of Holy Orders that ordained priests "to offer the Sacrifice of the Mass for the living and the dead" with a Protestantized, invalid New Ordinal that merely "installed" presbyters like Protestants "to preside over the assembly." The document involved is Pontificalis Romani: Constitutio Apostolica qua Novi Ritus Approbantur ad Ordinationem Diaconi, Presbyteri et Episcopi "Pontificalis Romani."

Thus, a presbyter must first abjure (recant) his heresy publicly before a (traditional) Catholic priest according to the form in the traditional Catholic Rituale Romanum, as he has publicly adhered to an heretical sect, the Novus Ordo (New Order), which is essentially a Protestant sect. He is not a priest and cannot validly celebrate the true Mass.

If this presbyter thinks that he has a vocation to the true (traditional) Catholic priesthood, he should approach a traditional Catholic bishop or seminary. Many are listed in the Official Traditional Catholic Directory. For further information, he should click on the TRADITIO Network's Official Traditional Catholic Directory department. He will then be guided according to his circumstances. After a time in study and preparation, he may then be ordained. He will not be "re-ordained" because he has never been ordained to begin with.

Until then, his "Masses" are invalid, and those who knowingly participate at them are committing the Sin of Sacrilege and associating themselves in his heresy. The simplest way to look at the situation is to consider that Newchurch presbyters are equivalent to Protestant ministers, and their services are equivalent to Protestant services, both of which are invalid.

Traditional Vatican coins used to feature the images of Christ, Mary, the Saints, or popes. Not in Francis-Bergoglio's Marxist/Modernist anti-Catholic Newchurch! Now Bergoglio has issued a Newvatican coin featuring the pagan Amazonian Pachamama goddess, whose idol Francis-Bergoglio enthroned in St. Peter's Archbasilica in October 2019 next to statues of the Blessed Virgin Mary.

The idol of the pagan fertility goddess was issued by the Newvatican Mint on October 13, 2020. It is depicts the goddess pregnant with the orb of the world. The coin was issued on the one-year anniversary of Bergoglio's Amazon Synod held in Newvatican October 6-27, 2019. A second coin issued depicts St. Peter welcoming illegal immigrants, a crime that Bergoglio has strongly been pushing. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Vatican News Service.]

True Catholics, even some Newchurch presbyters have been so offended at Francis-Bergoglio's paganism that they have publicly burned the idol. The pagan Pachamama fits well with Bergoglio's 2015 encyclical letter, Laudato si', which treats the earth as a pagan goddess (Gaia) and even proposes a hymn to her. Bergoglio and his Newchurch are now so far even from Protestantism toward paganism that it is more redolent of pagan Hinduism and Buddhism, which Bergoglio openly praises.

Newchurch Eastern-rite Paedophile Presbyter Is Expelled

Now Has More than a Headache

Everything about Newchurch Is Corrupt

As if sexually assaulting a girl for four years wasn't enough, it was announced on October 13, 2020, that Newchurch Eastern-rite presbyter Basil Hutsko, of Melville, Ohio, has been expelled for also claiming that he was personally assaulted for Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. The U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation was investigating the matter as a possible hate crime.

Now it turns out that the accused paedophile made the whole thing up, claiming that the non-existent assailant cried out, "This is for all the kids!" At the same time another Newchurch Eastern-rite presbyter, Stephen Muth, was expelled for a "credible" sex crime against a handicapped adult.

True Catholics, every aspect of the Newchurch of the New Order is corrupt. Its invalid (fake) Eastern rites have not been free of moral corruption and should be shunned as complete as its invalid (fake) Western "New Mess." The Newpopes JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and especially Francis-Bergoglio have allowed rampant paedophilia to consume Newchurch, which has already sunk liturgically, doctrinally, and morally and is now rapidly sinking financially from its rampant embezzlement. Newchurch must be completely shunned by all true Catholics to avoid their own moral complicity in these vile sins.

A Young Woman Is Implicated with Newcardinal Becciu and the Loss of 400,000,000 Newchurch Dollars

Francis-Bergoglio's Newcardinal Becciu
Raises His Hands in Resignation
As the Finger of Guilt Is Pointed at Him
In a 400,000,000-dollar Embezzlement
Of Funds Donated
By Clueless Newchurchers around the World
Now the Plot Has Thickened to Include a Young Woman
Who Is Reported to Have Been Paid off by Becciu
With Money for Her Involvement in the Scheme
Which She Laundered through Her Own Company
Bergoglio's Reputation Has Now Sunk to Rock Bottom

As the plot thickens in the financial corruption holocaust now enveloping Francis-Bergoglio's Newvatican spins out of control, the watch phrase is cherchez la femme. The now-deposed Newcardinal Angelo Becciu, Bergoglio's Prefect of the Congregation for the Causes of Saints, has now been implicated with an Italian woman 33 years his junior. This woman was arrested on October 13, 2020, by Italian police in the scandal involving the embezzlement of over 400,000,000 U.S. dollars in a failed London real-estate scam, approved at the highest ranks of Bergoglio's Newvatican.

The 39-year-old woman was reported to have received a payoff from Becciu of almost 600,000 dollars, the money, falsely earmarked for "humanitarian operations," being laundered through her own Slovenian company. She is reported to have spent at least half of the payoff on merchandise from Prada, Chanel, and other fancy brands. Becciu is reported to have funneled 100,000 dollars of Newvatican money also to his brother, supposedly for "charitable" purposes.

At least five of Bergoglio's employees have also been implicated in the embezzlement of funds, which are said to have come from the Newpapal "charity" known as "Peter's Pence." Newchurchers were fleeced of the money that they kicked in at extra collections during fake Novus Ordo Messes every year to fund the scam "charity," which is currently being investigated by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation and is the subject of a court action on behalf of all Newchurchers in the United States, who have been scammed by fraudulent statements by their Newbishops encouraging donations to the fraudulent collection. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]

True Catholics, this breathtaking embezzlement is just the latest and largest of many that have occurred during Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust. The crimes have been supported by donations of clueless Newchurchers around the world. Even though the corruption of Newvatican, especially under Francis-Bergoglio's regime, is quite public, Newchurchers still support the crimes by their continuing contributions. Newchurchers are engaged in sheer madness and moral depravity in having anything to do with the heretical and immoral Newchurch of the New Order, founded in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council to replace the institutional Catholic Church. Bergoglio's reputation has now sunk to rock bottom.

A Reader Asks: "Have the Eastern Rites Fallen into Heresy
Together with the New Order in the West?"

From: William
Traditional Maronite Missal

A Traditional Maronite (Antiochian) Missal
After the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965)

Generally Abandoned Their Apostolic Form
Substituting Invalid Vernacularized
Novus-Ordoized Services
Western Catholics Are Easily Duped
By These "Modernized" Eastern Rites
Because They Are Ignorant of the Eastern Rites
And Their Liturgical Languages
(Biblical Greek, Ancient Syriac, Etc.)

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

Have the Eastern Rites fallen into heresy together with the New Order in the West? Are Easterners no longer true Catholics because of their allegiance to heretical Newrome?

The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.

One has to make a distinction here between the Eastern rites that are part of the Eastern Orthodox Church and those that are "uniate" with Newrome. The Eastern Orthodox are formally schismatic; therefore, Catholics cannot attend their services. However, it has been the traditional position of the Catholic Church that their Apostolic Eastern rites are valid. The Uniate Easterners are another matter. Their liturgies, doctrine, and morals have been corrupted along with the Newchurch of the New Order headquartered in Newrome, which controls them. Therefore, their rites are generally no more valid than the invalid Novus Ordo rites of the West.

The Newchurch Eastern Rites have generally abandoned their Apostolic form. Before the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), the "uniate" Easterners had Apostolic rites, but they have now substituted invalid vernacularized, Novus-Ordoized services. Western Catholics are easily duped by these "modernized" Eastern rites because they are ignorant of the Eastern Rites and their liturgical languages (Biblical Greek, Ancient Syriac, etc.).

For example, the Vatican II Anti-council began to invade the Maronite (Antiochian) Rite decades ago. The foreword in the June 1969 Maronite Missal states: "It is a small step toward the total revision of our liturgy, because our Maronite Missal should undergo changes even more basic than the present ones. We are anxiously awaiting the revisions of the Patriarchal Liturgical Commission. They have started working on the total revision of our Missal, Ritual, Pontifical, Calendar, Breviary, and public prayers." The current (1994) Maronite Missal states in its foreword that the new Maronite liturgy is based on (heretical) Vatican II decrees.

Special Plenary Indulgences
For the Holy Souls in Purgatory
May Traditionally Be Gained
During All Souls' Day and Its Octave
These May Remit
The Entire Temporal Punishment
Due to Sins, after Forgiven
So that No Further Expiation is Required
For a Soul in Purgatory

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

I understand that traditionally there are special indulgences granted on All Souls Day, November 2, which can be applied to the Holy Souls in Purgatory and that also there are special indulgences for visiting a cemetery on that day. Could you explain the indulgences that are available on that day?

The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.

Holy Mother Church, in her generosity toward the Holy Souls in Purgatory, opens wide the possibility for indulgences to be gained for these souls on All Souls' Day, November 2, and throughout its Octave, that is, through November 9.

The faithful who, during the period of eight days from All Souls Day, visit a cemetery in a spirit of piety and devotion, and pray, even mentally, for the dead, may gain a plenary indulgence under the usual conditions, on each day of the Octave, applicable only to the dead.

In addition, any of the faithful who visit a church or oratory on All Souls' Day or the Sunday following and pray for the dead, may gain a plenary indulgence applicable only to the Holy Souls in Purgatory, under the usual conditions.

By a "plenary indulgence" is meant the remission of the entire temporal punishment due to sins, after forgiven in Confession, so that no further expiation is required for a soul in Purgatory. By the term " usual conditions" for gaining a plenary indulgence is meant the reception of the Sacraments of Penance and Holy Communion within the eight days preceding or following. In addition, the individual must recite vocally six Paters, Aves, and Glorias. This plenary indulgence is applicable "toties quoties"; that is, the indulgence is gained as many times as the works are performed.

Over the dead the Church has no jurisdiction and therefore makes the indulgence available only by petitioning God to accept these works of satisfaction and in consideration thereof to mitigate or shorten the sufferings of the souls in Purgatory.

On Charges of Sex Crimes against Children

Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust has now found its way again into the top levels of Newvatican. The London real-estate scam, in which over 200,000,000 U.S. dollars from Francis-Bergoglio's scam "charity" fund known as "Peter's Pence" were lost by Newvatican machinations. The "charity" is funded by donations from Newchurchers around the world for the Newpope to aid the poor. However, when Francis-Bergoglio was pushed to the wall to explain what had happened, he confessed that 90 per cent of the money goes not to charity at all, but to sustain his faltering regime at Newvatican.

Then, on October 2, 2020, it was reported that Newcardinal Angelo Becciu, who had suddenly abdicated just eight days earlier under suspicious circumstances, had embezzled over 800,000 U.S. dollars from Newvatican accounts and transferred the funds to Australia during the trial there of Newcardinal George Pell on sex crimes against children. The embezzlement is currently the subject of an internal investigation by Newvatican. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]

True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio, Newcardinal Becciu, and others are immersed in the quicksand of a growing crime wave at the top levels of Newchurch. For what purpose were the embezzled funds going to Australia? Were they perhaps going to bribe Australian officials? Who knows? But one thing is clear: Newvatican is far too corrupt to handle the donations of its Newchurchers. The European Union, if it had any teeth, should turn off the spigot of Newvatican's money laundering and expel Newvatican from the European financial system, as it has many times threatened to do.

A U.S. Pew Research Center study conducted in mid July 2020 and released on October 9, 2020, found that 86 per cent of 3,700 adults surveyed believe that the Chinese Virus presents a lesson for mankind. 35 per cent of the 3,700 respondents believe that the Chinese Virus pandemic is a lesson sent by God, which include the following warnings:

  1. Mankind must repent of arrogance and contempt of God.
  2. Mankind must pray more, and harder.
  3. Mankind must come to know God better.
  4. Mankind must change his sinful ways.
  5. Mankind must show more gratitude for all God's blessings.

Newchurch Presbyter-pastor Travis Clark
Is Flanked by the Two Dominatrices
With Whom He Shot a Pornographic Film
On His Newparish's Novus Ordo "Altar"
The Trio Are Now Charged with Sex Crimes
This Scandal Simply Confirms the Fact
That Newchurch Is Certainly Not the Catholic Church
But Is Treated Like a Joke even by Its Own Newclergy
From Newpope Francis-Bergoglio on Down

We have written many times that Newchurch does not have a priesthood, nor a Mass, nor an altar. But it's worse than that, if such were even possible. Now we see that even presbyters don't respect their own worse-than-Protestant Novus Ordo "eucharistic dinner tables," as a Newchurch presbyter-pastor, probably not the first, has used his Newparish's "eucharistic dinner table" to hold a sex orgy with prostitutes. Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust continues unabated. Francis-Bergoglio is not interested in rooting out sex crimes from his Marxist/Communist Newchurch.

Presbyter Travis Clark, pastor of Newchurch's Sts. Peter & Paul Church in Pearl River, Louisiana, was booked on sex crimes on September 30, 2020. At 23:00 local time, he was photographed by a passerby who saw the church lights on. The presbyter was photographed half naked in his clerical attire on top of the "altar" visible from the street having coitus with two prostitute dominatrices with the assistance of instruments (not of the musical kind). The three were recording the session for a pornographic film, complete with lights and cameras. One of the dominatrices posted on her internet site that she was planning to "defile the house of God." (Of course, Newchurches are not houses of God. As this case confirms, they are houses of the Devil.)

In addition to his role as pastor of the Newparish, the presbyter was chaplain of a Newchurch high school named after the "Unsaint" Newpope JPII-Wojtyla. The previous Newchurch chaplain had been dismissed because he admitted to sex crimes with a minor. Newarchbishop Greg Aymond, of New Orleans had kept the crimes secret, even from the principal and parents of the school for seven months. Both presbyters are at large on bail.

After the phony Novus Ordo "altar" was defiled, Newarchbishop Aymond went to the Newchurch site in an attempt to "restore the altar's sanctity." In that task he failed because he has not the power; he was never ordained as a priest or consecrated as a bishop in the Sacrament of Holy Orders. He was merely "installed to preside," like a Protestant minister. There is no way to restore the "sanctity" of a Novus Ordo "eucharistic dinner table" because it was never an altar and was never holy to begin with. In the end, Aymond burned the "altar" in a demonic blaze. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the New Orleans, Louisiana, Times Picayune.]

True Catholics, this scandal simply confirms the fact that That Newchurch is certainly not the Catholic Church, but is treated like a joke even by its own Newclergy, from Newpope Francis-Bergoglio on down. Bergoglio treats Newchurch merely as a platform to spew his Marxist/Communist propaganda, such as his latest encyclical letter Fratelli tutti. The Newcardinals treat Newchurch merely as a cash cow, through which they embezzle funds and launder money, as in the recent real-estate fraud, in which 200,000,000 U.S. dollars' worth of funds donated by Newchurchers to the scam Newpapal charity "Peter's Pence" were lost. Presbyters treat Newchurch merely as a stage for sex crimes against children and adults. No true Catholic can have anything to do with the satanic Newchurch.

Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio Persists in His Loyalty to Red China
He Refuses to Reconsider His Secret Deal to Sell out His Newchurch to the Communists

Francis-Bergoglio Stands before Flag

The United States Has Recently Been Trying
To Get Bergoglio to Renounce His Secret Deal
Selling out His Newchurch to the Communists
But the Marxist Newpope Has Dug in His Hells
And Has Remained Loyal to the Communist Tyrrany
In Spite of Pope Pius XII's Excommunication Decree

When the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio refused to speak with U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeio when the latter requested a meeting to discuss Bergoglio's lethal secret deal to sell out His Newchurch to the Communists, Pompeio did get a meeting with Bergoglio's Secretary of State, Pietro Parolin, currently being investigated in an embezzlement scheme involving hundreds of millions of U.S. dollars. The funds were donated to Bergoglio's scam charity called "Peter's Pence," which is also being investigated by the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Some terms of Bergoglio's secret deal with the Communists have leaked out. Bergoglio has been receiving a multimillion-dollar payoff from Red China in return for Bergoglio's allowing the Communist dictatorship of Xi Jinping to appoint all Newchurch bishops in China and to persecute any Newchurcher who does not go along with the deal. Newchurches and crosses throughout Red China have already been demolished. Ironically, Bergoglio claims that he is effecting the sellout "for religious freedom." Reports have it that Bergoglio has already signed an extension of the October 2019 two-year deal with the Communists for another two-year term.

The U.S. has been calling on Newvatican to take a much harder stance against Red China's totalitarian atheistic regime, which persecutes all religions, including Newchurchers, Evangelicals, Uigur Muslims, and Falun Gongs. Pompeio has said that “nowhere is religious freedom under assault more than in China" and that the Communist party is working “day and night to snuff out the lamp of freedom, especially religious freedom, on a horrifying scale." Pompeio went on to say that Bergoglio, by signing the secret sellout deal with Red China has "compromises his moral authority." Meanwhile, Communist China has been threatening "further tightening for Chinese Catholic [sic] communities." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]

True Catholics, in 1949, after the Communists took over China, Pope Pius XII excommunicated as apostates those Catholics who profess Communist doctrine. That excommunication stands to this day. There are now 12,000,000 Newchurchers in Red China who are being internet in concentration ("reeducation") camps, imprisoned, and even killed, with Bergoglio's tacit approval.

Just More Evidence that Newchurch Is Not Catholic
And that Its New Mess Is Not a Mass at All
But a Worse than a Protestant Fraud

More and more evidence has piled up that Newchurch is not Catholic and that its New Mess is not a Mass at all, but a worse-than-Protestant fraud. Newchurch not follow Catholic theology. Its Mess is even worse than an invalid, heretical Protestant service. A case in point arose on October 7, 2020, when John Turner, a former Liberal-party Prime Minister of Canada for a little over two months in 1984, died at age 91 and received a New Funeral Mess, in which not one, not two, but three eulogies were given at the Mess.

Catholic theology prohibits even one eulogy, as a deceased individual is not to be judged by fallible man. St. Michael's New Order Cathedral in Toronto, Canada, was the site of this travesty, where Turner's funeral was accompanied by the "insolent noise" of rock "music" rang forth. Again, Catholic theology prohibits any instrumental music at a funeral, only Gregorian chant.

Turner was a true Newchurch apostate. He worked with others in the Canadian government to legalize abortion, sodomy, and artificial contraception. If Newchurch were Catholic, he wouldn't have had a church funeral at all!

The Newchurchers Pled Guilty

Another "Catholic" Charity bites the dust, proving again that no one should donate a dime to anything having to do with the false Newchurch. Clarissa Combs, Program Manager of "Catholic Charities," is now in the penitentiary for embezzling 684,000 dollars from the "charity." She will probably be working off the restitution for the rest of her life. And Newchurch is still so incompetent that it did not catch the embezzlement, perpetrated over a period of seven years from 2012 to 2019.

Our Lord Jesus Christ encouraged charity to the poor, but "Catholic Charities" turns charity on its head, embezzling donations intended for the poor and homeless, for whom the funds that Coombs embezzled were to have been used to provide housing and other services. Nor is this the first time that fraud in "Catholic Charities" has been exposed. In 2019 Newpope Francis-Bergoglio's "Peter's Pence" was exposed as a fraud, the vast majority of donations it collected going not to the poor, but into Newvatican's pockets. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Fox News.]

True Catholics, Coombs was the ringleader, but twelve accomplices were also identified by the U.S. Attorney's Office, pled guilty, and were convicted. She recruited other corrupt Newchurchers to pose as needy in order to steal the money from the actual poor and homeless. Newchurch, being a parody of the true Catholic Church, has no charity, as it lacks Sacrament grace . Its "sacraments" are fake and are powerless to infuse the theological virtues of faith, hope, and charity in its adherents.

From the Communist Stench
Emanating from Francis-Bergoglio's
Third Encyclical Letter, Fratelli Tutti
There Is Nothing in It of True Catholic Doctrine
It Embraces Condemned Oecumenism and Secularism
While Rejecting Other Catholic Philosophy and Doctrine
Already the Rejections Are Piling up against the Letter
Even from His Own Newchurchers

On October 4, 2020, the Feastday of St. Francis of Assisi, Confessor of the Church, Francis-Bergoglio issued his third Encyclical Letter. His previous one, Laudato si' (2015), was a screed on the God of Environmentalism. This one smacks of the God of Oecumenism and Secularism. He is over his head in things that are outside his wheelhouse. Here are a few of the topics he bloviates upon, in 287 sections, no less, contrary to the Catholic Faith.

Oecumenism (Condemned Syncretism). Bergoglio pushes Oecumenism, that is, condemned Syncretism, a grave denial of the First Commandment of God: "I am the Lord Thy God. Thou shalt not have strange gods before me." Bergoglio essentially teaches that "we all worship the same gods" and the "all religions are true." He pushes "brotherhood" with heretics, schismatics, pagans, and atheists. The real St. Francis would brook none of this deviancy from his false namesake. In fact, he personally accompanied the Fifth Crusade and attempted to convert the Mohammedan leader Sultan Malek-el-Kamil to Catholicism, saying, "We have come to preach faith in Jesus Christ to you, that you will renounce Mohammed, that wicked slave of the devil, and obtain everlasting life."

Secularism. Bergoglio goes on to push Secularism. He shows clearly that he is a Communist. He hates free markets and wants the United Nations, a godless secular organization, to control the economy of the world. To the contrary, the philosophy of the Catholic Church has been resolutely anti-Communist. Catholic orators such as Fr. Charles Coughlin, Fr. Denis Fahey, and Bishop Fulton Sheen publicly inveighed against it in no uncertain terms. In fact, Pope Pius XII in 1949 declared those who professed Communist doctrine to be excommunicated as apostates from the Christian faith. In any case, what does any of this have to do with the Most Blessed Trinity, Our Lord Jesus Christ, the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Holy Angels, and the Saints. These topics get little shift in Bergoglio's book. He longs to be a secular autocrat, not a religious one.

Religious Freedom. Hypocritically, Bergoglio calls for religious freedom and condemning religious persecution, but is even now hypocritically signing the death warrant for Newchurchers, other Christians, and even his "brother" Muslims by entering into another secret agreement with the Communist Chinese dictator, Xi Jinping, who is murdering and sending to concentration camps ("reeducation centers") those who have as much as a belief in God.

Capital Punishment. Bergoglio brings out the favorite whipping boy of Leftists: capital punishment. Although clearly accepted by Our Lord in Scripture and thus accepted in Catholic Moral Theology from the beginning, the First Paedophile Newpope Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla first tried to slip in a condemnation in his fake "New Catechism." Before he released the official Latin version in 1997, he toyed around with changing doctrines in the vulgar-tongued drafts. However, when he tried to introduce a moral censure against capital punishment, the pushback from the faithful was so strong that he took it out. Now the Third Paedophile Newpope Francis-Bergoglio is trying to put the censure back and include also life sentences, even for perverted paedophile murderers, like some of his own Newclergy. He is more concerned about a few hundred executions, but he is not concerned with 60,000,000 fetal murders annually.

True Catholics, more and more of the world refuses to listen to Francis-Bergoglio's deviancy. Already the rejections are piling up against the encyclical letter even from his own Newchurchers, who are identifying iits Communist foundation and its anti-Catholic deviation. Real Catholics have already consigned it to the trash heap, together with his other two. They are not Catholic, as he is not Catholic.

The Marxist/Modernist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio is planning a complete upheaval of the Newroman Curia, the administrative body of his Newchurch, consisting mostly of Newcardinals. As of September 21, 2020, a document completely overturning the current Newcuria is pending imminent release. When that document is released, the current, mostly "conservative," Novus Ordo prelates will be forcibly retired and replaced by Marxist/Modernists of Bergoglio's stripe. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]

Most of the current Newcurial prefects are already well past the retirement age of 75:

  1. Newcardinal Robert Sarah, Prefect of the Congregation for [Novus Ordo] Divine Worship, 75
  2. Newcardinal Beniamino Stella, Orefect of the Congregation for Clergy, 79
  3. Newcardinal Giuseppe Versaldi, Prefect of the Congregation for [New Order] Education, 77
  4. Newcardinal Marc Ouellet, Prefect of the Congregation for [New]bishops, 76
  5. Newcardinal Luis Ladaria, Prefect of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith, 76
  6. Newcardinal Leonardo Sandri, Prefect of the Congregation for the Eastern Churches, 75
  7. Newcardinal Mauro Piacenza, Apostolic Penitentiary, 76
  8. Newcardinal Giuseppe Bertello, President of the Vatican City-state, 77
  9. Newcardinal Gianfranco Ravasi, President of the [New]pontifical Council for Culture, 77
  10. Newmonsignor Pio Vito Pinto, Dean of the Roman Rota, 79

True Catholics, the Neocon Newchurchers, who still hopelessly long for a "conservative" Newchurch, a contradiction in terms, will be cast into the outer darkness. When Francis-Bergoglio's upheaval comes, it will complete the work of the Vatican II Anti-council and turn the Newchurch of the New Order into an overtly atheist Marxist institution, purged of even the remnants of Catholicism.

Is a eulogy of the deceased appropriate at a Catholic Requiem Mass? I didn't think that eulogies are allowed during the Mass, but I heard of a case where this happened.

The TRADITIO Fathers Reply.

Not only is a eulogy of the deceased inappropriate at a Catholic Requiem Mass; it is explicitly prohibited. A eulogy is entirely contrary to the purpose of a Catholic Requiem Mass, which is not to dwell on the earthly life of the deceased, but to pray for the repose of his soul from Purgatory (in case the soul is in Heaven or Hell, such prayers redound to the Holy Souls in Purgatory) and to contemplate our own death and judgment.

At death it is not for man to judge, but God. Moreover, a eulogy can be a complete misjudgment on the part of man, so the Church wisely prohibits eulogies at a Requiem Mass. In the non-Catholic Newchurch, eulogies are commonly given even for paedophile Newcardinals. It is a scandal. If a eulogy is to be given, it should take place outside the Mass and the church, as at the wake. Even U.S. President John Kennedy did not receive a eulogy at his traditional Catholic Requiem Mass.

Eighth Largest Newchurch Diocese in the United States Goes Bankrupt
Rockville Centre, Long Island, New York, Is the 25th to Go Under

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
John Barres

Newbishop John Barres
Isn't Laughing Any Longer
In only Three Years of His Rule
His Newdiocese of Rockville Centre, New York
Has Gone Bankrupt because It Can't Pay Off
The Claims of over 200 Children
That His Paedophile Presbyters
Raped, Sodomized, and Otherwise
Sexually Assaulted Them

The 25th and so-far largest Newdiocese in the United States has declared bankruptcy on October 1, 2020. That's almost ten per cent of all the Newchurch dioceses and in the States. Some of the Newdioceses have still not emerged from bankruptcy. Three religious orders have also declared bankruptcy. It was Newchurch's ongoing Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, exposed in 2002, that has done them in.

Rockville Centre on Long Island, New York, is the eighth largest Newchurch diocese in the U.S. It claims 1,400,000 Newchurchers. It is the largest so far to declare bankruptcy on account of a firestorm of over 200 lawsuits by child victims of its paedophile presbyters. Advocates for the children say that the "cowardly and self-serving" bankruptcy will not stop their "fighting to make sure the [New]diocese of Rockville Centre is held accountable.” [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Los Angeles Times.]

True Catholics, in 2019, a total of 4,434 children had been raped, sodomized, and otherwise sexually assaulted by Newchurch presbyters and bishops in the United States -- triple the number from the previous year. Newdioceses in Syracuse, Rochester, and Buffalo, all in New York, have already declared bankruptcy in just the last year. Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust is continuing unabated, in fact, is markedly increasing. Meanwhile, Francis-Bergoglio whistles through the graveyard of the dead lives of children assaulted by his Newclergy. He refuses to take any definitive action against the bloodbath over which he presides. Even the notorious Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick was dealt with only after Newchurchers threatened an outright revolt from Bergoglio's reign of terror.

Newchurch Disemtombs the Rotting Corpse of a 15-year-old Teenager
And Desecrates It because It Needs a New Poster Boy for Its Dying Sect

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
CAPTION

Newchurch Is Displaying the Putrifying Corpse
Of a Teenager It Wants to Make a Novus Ordo "Blessed"
Because He Prayed for the Third
Paedophile Newpope, Francis Bergoglio
And Loved Novus Ordo Cookies and Kool-Aid
The Poor Victim's Body Was Reassembled from the Tomb
His Face Was Reconstructed
And He Was Dressed in Clothes Redolent of a Gang Member
Thus Will Newchurch Not Hesitate to Stoop
Even to Tomb-robbing and Desecration of Corpses

Is there any vile and impious crime in which the Newchurch of the New Order will not engage to aggrandize itself? Are paedophile crimes and embezzlement not enough? Now Newchurch has stooped to tomb-robbing and desecration of corpses. In its latest irreligious grotesquerie, Newchurch on October 1, 2020, disentombed the remains of one Carlo Acutis, a 15-year-old teenager dead of lukaemia, who it claims is a Novus Ordo "Blessed" because he prayed for the Third Paedophile Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio, and loved Novus Ordo cookies and Kool-Aid.

Newchurch then patched his body parts back together, attempted to restore his atrophied face, and dressed his corpse in clothes that made him look like a gang member -- jeans, sneakers, and a numbered prison shirt --, even though these were not the clothes in which he was buried. This is a first for Newchurch. The cadaver was putrefying when put on display in Assisi, Italy, but even that was not enough to stop the desecration. The whole affair seemed as if taken right out of Robert Louis Stevenson's Gothic horror story, "The Body Snatcher."

Newchurch has scheduled a public viewing of the disentombed cadaver for seventeen days -- sans coeur, --, as Acutis's heart has been cut out to be displayed separately in the Novus Ordo Basilica at Assisi.

True Catholics, it is clear what Francis-Bergoglio is up to. His dying, paedophile, embezzling Newchurch needs another poster boy, so poor Carlo has become a pawn in a P.R. effort to push him as a "boy of the internet age," as he did some programming. Bergoglio has desperately tried to compare the internet to Our Lord Jesus Christ's in-person preaching to individual souls. To achieve his Marxist/Modernist goals, he will not hesitate to stoop even to tomb-robbing and desecration of corpses.

In 2021 Newchurch Will Share Its (Fake) "Eucharistic Meal"
With Heretics, Schismatics, and Pagans

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
JPII at Assisi

The "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla Joined With
Pagans, Heretics, and Schismatics
At the Oecumenical Conference that He Hosted
At Assisi, Italy, in 1986
Where He Allowed the Buddha to Be Placed
Above the Novus Ordo "Tabernacle"
For the 2021 Oecumenical Church Conference
Newchurch Will Go the Next Step
And "Share" Its "Eucharistic Meal"
Of Fake (Invalid) Novus Ordo Cookies and Kool-Aid
In "Fellowship" with Heretics, Schismatics, and Pagans

If anyone still doubts the fact that the Newchurch of the New Order is most certainly not the Catholic Church, the recent developments in Newchurch about what it calls "eucharist" (not Holy Eucharist, and certainly not "Holy Communion") should resolve any such doubts. (Newchurch does not have valid sacramental Holy Communion. It dumped that when it did away with the priests and substituted presbyters (ministers), and dumped the Catholic Mass and substituted the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Order service. All it has is fake cookies and Kool-Aid, like the Protestants.)

"Theologians" associated with the German [New]bishops' Conference called for "eucharistic meal fellowship." This is a Newchurch term for sharing Novus Ordo cookies and Kool-Aid in "fellowship" with Protestant heretics. The call, which had the Protestant-sounding title "Together at the Lord's Table," smacks of heresy and got only the gentlest of responses on September 22, 2020, from the Newchurch Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith. There was no surprise here because the theologians consisted of a gaggle of Protestants and Newchurchers, who are in reality Protestants, not Catholics. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

True Catholics, Newvatican is now relegated to being a paper tiger. In spite of Newvatican's reservations about sharing its cookies and Kool-Aid with other Protestant sects (as Newchurch, since the Vatican II Anti-council of 1962-1965, is itself a Protestant sect), Newbishop Georg Batzing, of Limburg, Germany (he of the foul-smelling cheese) announced that the "eucharistic meal fellowship" would be put into practice at the Ocumenical Church Congress in Frankfurt in May 2021. In fact, Newvatican probably has no reservations at all, but itself staged the whole affair.

H-e-e-e's Back! Newcardinal Pell, Imprisoned on Paedophile Charges
Has Been Recalled by Francis-Bergoglio to Newrome

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
George Pell

Francis-Bergoglio Could Not Wait to Welcome Back to Newrome
Newcardinal George Pell, of Sydney, Australia
Who Had Been Convicted by Two Juries and a Court of Appeals
On Paedophile Crimes against Several Children
He Served over a Year in Prison
Before He Was Let off on a Technicality
Pell Is Now Playing the Sycophant to Bergoglio
Who Is Enmeshed in a 200,000,000-dollar Real-estate Fraud
And Embezzling Money Donated for Charitable Works
Instead to Underwriting His Operational Costs

Francis-Bergoglio has invited back to Newrome his Newcardinal and former Prefect of the Economy (Chief Financial Officer), George Pell, who served fourteen months in an Australian prison on several counts of paedophile crimes against several child victims. He had served fourteen months of a six-year sentence when his conviction by two juries and the Court of Appeals was reversed on a technicality.

And what was Pell's price to get a Bergoglian recall to Newrome on September 29, 2020? He had to play the public sycophant to Francis-Bergoglio by "congratulating" him on his "financial actions" at the same time that Bergoglio is enmeshed in a scandal involving the loss of 200,000,000 U.S. dollars of Newchurchers' donations in a London real-estate fraud, at the same time that Bergoglio's "Peter's Pence" charity is being exposed in front of a U.S. court as a fraud and a scam. [Some information for this Commentary as contributed by Austalia's Catholic Weekly.]

True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's financial scandals continue unabated: real-estate frauds, embezzlement of Newchurchers' donations for charitable works instead to underwriting his operating costs. Newvatican is currently booking losses of 50,000,000 dollars per annum. It was to extort further donations that Bergoglio kept on the disgraced paedophile Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick, who was a whiz twisting arms for tainted donations going not to charitable works, but to prop up Bergoglio's moribund Newchurch regime.

Modernist/Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio Sides with Communist China Once Again
He Refuses to Meet U.S. Secretary of State to Tear up Newvatican's Secret Sellout Deal with China

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Concentration Camp

Communist China's Religious Concentration Camp in Jinjiang
Where Newchurchers, Protestants, and Muslims
Are Imprisoned for Their Faith
Atheist China Is Destroying Churches and Crosses Countrywide
Bergoglio Has Caused an International Scandal
By Refusing to Meet when the U.S. Secretary of State
To Tear up Newvatican's Secret Sellout Deal with Red China
Meanwhile, Francis-Bergoglio Is Renewing that Deal
Which Allows Communist China to Appoint Its Own Newbishops
Thus Bergogolio No Longer Makes Any Pretense to Be Newpope

The evidence keeps piling up that Francis-Bergoglio is an atheist Communist. Now he seems literally Hell-bent on renewing his scandalous September 2019 secret sellout deal with Communist Chinese Dictator Xi Jinping, which allows Xi to appoint Newchurch bishops for China instead of Bergoglio. This is an outright transfer of supposedly Newpapal power to the Communists. Pius XII rejected a similar accommodation with Red China in 1949, the year that the Communists and their Dictator Mao Tse-tung took power. Pius XII in that same year issued the Decree Against Communism, which declared Catholics who professed Communist doctrine to be excommunicated as apostates from the Catholic Faith.

Bergoglio has caused an international scandal by refusing on September 28, 2020, to meet with the U.S. Secretary of State on the matter, knowing that United States policy opposes accommodation to the Communist Chinese government, which is herding Christians and Muslims into railroad cars for delivery to concentration camps. The U.S. Secretary of State has said: “No regime suppresses faith on a larger scale than the Chinese Communist Party. Over one million Uighurs and Tibetans have been forced into internment camps, subject to surveillance, torture, forced abortions, and sterilizations -- all part of the CCP's decades-long war on faith.” The French President has called for a United Nations Investigation into Red China's religious persecutions.

Yet Bergoglio intends to renew his sellout of his Newchurch to the Communists and won't brook any opposition from his own prelates, like Newcardinal Joseph Zen of Hong Kong, or from the international diplomatic community. Although Bergoglio won't speak to the U.S. Secretary of State, the Communist Chinese Foreign Ministry points with pride to the fact that it has "good communication" with Bergoglio. Bergoglio and his Newvatican are reported to be receiving hundreds of millions of U.S. dollars in the Chinese deal as "bribe money." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Daily Express.]

True Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio speaks and acts like a Marxist, even a Communist, a position that Pope Pius XII formally defined in 1949 as apostasy from true Catholic Faith. The time has come for the United States and the world to declare Bergoglio's Vatican State, originally connived with the Fascist dictator Benito Mussolini in 1929, an "unfavored nation" and to treat as money laundering the funds exiting the United States as "donations" by Newchurchers to Newvatican "charities" exposed by investigators as scams. The worst of these is "Peter's Pence," most of which Bergoglio himself has admitted goes not to charity, as Newchurchers have mendaciously been told, but to shoring up Bergoglio's tottering Marxist/Modernist Newvatican. Even now the Newbishops of the United States are being hauled into court for fraudulently publicizing Bergoglio's slush funds as "charities."
