Newchurch Has Been Admitting "Trans Men" to Its Newseminaries and Male Religious Houses
Shades of the "Immaculate Deception" Scandal Perpetrated by Newcardinal Ray Burke

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Transgendered Man

The Chairman of the Governance Committee
Of the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops
Has Written to the 300 U.S. Newbishops
That Women (Trangendered Men)
Have Been "Unknowingly" Admitted
To Newchurch Seminaries and Male Religious Houses
It Seems Again that Newchurch Is Exposed
As Not Having a Clue What It Is Doing
But Whatever It is Doing
It Is Certainly Not the Catholic Church

It all started back in 2014 when current Newcardinal Ray "Bully" Burke, erroneously thought by some to be "traditionalist," consecrated a "transgendered man" as a Newchurch "nun" in a scandal branded the "Immaculate Deception." No "traditionalist" is Burke, who, of course, does not wish this information to be mentioned, even though it was all over the local press at the time and got him booted as Newbishop of La Crosse, Wisconsin.

Now, on September 22, 2021, the Jerome Listecki, Chairman of the U.S. Newbishops' Committee on Canonical Affairs and Church Governance, has written to the 300 U.S. Newbishops to inform them that an "unspecified number" of "transgender men" have been "unknowingly admitted" to Newchurch's seminaries and male religious houses in the United States. It seems that Newchurch is one again caught speaking with a forked tongue: saying one thing and doing another, a common tactic after the heretical Modernist Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965).

So defective is Newchurch's vetting of candidates for the Newchurch presbyterate (Newchurch has not ordained priests since 1968, when it adopted a Protestantized New Ordinal that merely "installs presbyters [ministers] to preside over the assembly of the people," not to "offer the Sacrifice of the Mass for the living and the dead") that, says Listecki, women have been admitted to Newchurch seminaries and religious houses for men. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Reporter.]

Traditional Catholics, Newarchbishop Listecki wants to institute scrutiny of Newchurch candidates to ensure that they are genetic males, such as by DNA testing. Even the Unholy Father, Francis-Bergoglio, is supposed to have condemned practices that "annihilate the concept of nature." It seems again that Newchurch is exposed as not having a clue what it is doing. But, whatever it is doing, it is certainly not the Catholic Church.


Francis-Bergoglio's Appointee to Head Newvatican's Marriage Institute
Wants to Redefine Marriage, as by Including "Gay Marriage"

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Philippe Bordeyne

Newmonsignor Philippe Bordeyne
Whom Francis-Bergoglio Appointed to Head
His Newpontifical Institute
For Marriage and the Family
Has Proposed a Redefinition of "Family"
To Include "Gay Marriage" and "Gay Adoption"
Francis-Bergoglio Has Already Expressed
His Favorable Opinion of "Civil Unions"
A Code Word for "Gay Marriage

According to Francis-Bergoglio's appointee to head Newvatican's Marriage Institute, Newchurch needs to change its definition of "family" to keep up with the times. In an interview given September 24, 2021, Newmonsignor Philippe Bordeyne was widely interpreted to indicate that the Bergoglio regime is open to accepting "gay marriage" and "gay adoption." Bordeyne is the new President of Bergoglio's Newpontifical John Paul II Institute for the Science of Marriage and the Family.

Speaking like a good Modernist heretic, Bordeyne indicated that, in the present "era of change," a changing "gender ideology" necessitates a change in the definition of "family" and, by implication, of marriage. Bordeyne is fully on board with Bergoglio's 2016 Encyclical Letter, "Amoris laetitia," which opened the door to divorced and remarried people to receive the fake (invalid) Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid, in an effort thereby to undercut traditional marriage. Bordeyne also has associations with the Newjesuit Marxist doctrine of "Liberation Theology." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]

Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio has already expressed his favorable opinion of "gay marriage" under the deceptive rubric of "civil union." He has said that he has no power to condemn sodomy, condemned in Natural Law, although he claims to be the Newpope of the Newchurch of the New Order. Bergoglio's creature, Philippe Bordeyne, intimated that he was perfectly at ease with fornication, illegitimate births, widespread divorce, "gay marriage," "Lesbian marriage," artificial contraception, and sexual promiscuity. This is the future of the Newchurch of the New Order, and there is nothing Catholic about it!

One of Francis-Bergoglio's Italian Presbyters Is under Arrest for Embezzling
117,000 USD from the Poor Box to Stage Lavish "Gay" Orgies Complete with "Date Rape" Drugs

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Francesco Spagnesi

Francis-Bergoglio's "Playboy Presbyter"
Who Has Been Arrested for Embezzling
117,000 USD from His Newparish's Poor Box
To Stage Drugged, Lavish "Gay" Sex Orgies
Using "Date Rape" Drugs Smuggled
From the Netherlands
Presbyter Spagnesi Claims:
I'm Innocent; the Drugs Made Me Do It!
Bergoglio Remains, as Always, Silent

First it was Francis-Bergoglio's embezzlement of funds from his Peter's Pence fake "charity" not to the poor and needy, as Newchurch parishioners were told, but to his own personal needs in trying to keep his corrupt Newpapacy from sliding into bankruptcy as a result of the half billion USD London real-estate scam. Now we have more evidence how Newchurch officials have been embezzling money donated for the poor in order to advance their own criminal activities.

One of Bergoglio's Italian presbyters was arrested on September 24, 2021, for stealing 117,000 USD from his Newparish's poor box to stage drugged, lavish "gay" sex orgies. Francesco Spagnesi raised funds for the poor, then staged "date rapes" through the use of "dating sites." His roommate finally turned him in when he discovered the Spagnesi had smuggled in Gamma-Hydroxybutyric Acid (GHB) from the Netherlands, not just a few millilitres, but by the litre. The GHB was supplemented with crack cocaine.

Spagnesi cleared through his Newparish's bank account all of the embezzled funds that were used to buy the drugs and host the orgies. He also embezzlemed money from the collection plate and solicited additional funds from his Newparishioners, who were told that the money was going to poor families. Presbyter Spagnesi claims: I'm innocent; the drugs made me do it! [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the International Business Times.]

Traditional Catholics, as usual Newvatican and Francis-Bergoglio have remained silent in the face of the gross embezzlement. How could they say anything about presbyter Spagnesi when they themselves -- Newpopes, Newcardinals, Newbishops, and other Newvatican officials -- have been caught red-handed doing the very same thing? Newchurchers who put money into the collection plate must know that they are accomplices in fraud, embezzlement and drug-running. The hands of Newchurchers are morally filthy just by their association with the corrupt Newchurch of the New Order.

Francis-Bergoglio Sends His Newcardinal Inquisitor to Shut down Another "Traditionalist" Group
The Carmelites of Fairfield, Pennsylvania Are Next on His Hit List

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Camel of Fairfield, Pennsylvania

Francis-Bergoglio Has Sent His Grand Inquisitor
Newcardinal Braz de Avis, to Cross-examine
A Group of "Traditionalist" Nuns in Pennsylvania
(Their Carmel Is Pictured Above)
Who Have Been Associated Exclusively
With the Vatican II Anti-council's
"Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962
The Nuns Have a Connection with Friars of the Immaculate
A "Traditionalist" Group that Benedict-Ratzinger Shut down
In 2013 for Having an "Overly Traditionalist Bent"

In July 2012 Benedict-Ratzinger received a complaint that the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate were simulating the "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962 exclusively and of having an "overly traditionalist bent." Ratzinger -- no "traditionalist" he, but a leader of the Modernist heretics at the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) -- deputed the infamous anti-traditionalist Newcardinal Joao Braz de Aviz, whom he had personally appointed Prefect of the Congregation for Religious, to conduct an Inquisition of the group. As a result of this Inquisition, Ratzinger dissolved the General Council of the group and suspended further installation of any presbyters from the group (in 1968 Newchurch stopped "ordaining priests" in the Sacrament of Holy Orders and now simply "installs presbyters over the assembly" like the Protestants).

On July 16, 2021, Braz was appointed by Bergoglio to conduct Inquisitions of the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), the Institute of Christ the King (ICR), the Institute of the Good Shepherd (IBP), and other New Latin Mass groups with a view to curtailing their activities in offering exclusively the New Latin Mess of 1962. One of the first victims of Braz's Inquisitions of "traditionalist" groups at the order of Bergoglio is the New Order sect's "traditionalist" Carmelites in Fairfield, Pennsylvania, who are associated with the "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962. Their Inquisition was announced by Braz in August 2021. He certainly wasted no time to conduct his Inquisitions!

The Inquisition of the Carmelites by Braz's Newchurch Congregation will take place September 25-28, 2021. The group's chaplain is a presbyter who was a refugee from the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate. The 25 nuns are expecting a "stressful trial," in which each of them will be cross-examined individually on their lives, their activities, and conduct. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]

Traditional Catholics, it is a good bet that on September 29, 2021, this group will be shut down, among the first of many New Latin Mess groups already being shut down. These groups, just like the Fraternity of St. Peter and the rest, are getting only what they deserve in justice. They sold out their Catholic Faith to get a seat at the New table run by the apostate Newpopes of the New Order. Now that New Order will shut them down. There is no surprise here. The result was entirely predictable and even announced in advance by the Newpopes. Just like Faust, those who make a compact with Mephistopheles end up in their own private Hell.

Francis-Bergoglio's Congregation for Religious Is Taking over the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP)
Some FSSP Sites Are Already Being Forced to Simulate the New Order Mess

Heretical Modernist "Liturgies"
In Some Areas Messes in FSSP Religious Houses
Have Been Ordered Closed to the Public

Just as we TRADITIO Fathers had warned, Francis-Bergoglio has now gone on a rampage against "traditionalist" groups within the Newchurch of the New Order. According to the provisions of his Motu Proprio "Traditionis custodes" of July 16, 2021, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith was stripped of supervision of the New Latin Mess ("Indult" or "Ecclesia Dei") groups like the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), the Institute of Christ the King (ICR), and the Institute of the Good Shepherd (IBP).

Bergoglio has placed as Prefect of the Congregation for Religious Newcardinal Joao Braz de Avis, a virulent anti "traditionalist." It is he whom Bergoglio has now specifically charged with dismantling the Vatican II Anti-council's Half New Order "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962. Already Braz de Aviz and his Congregation are taking control FSSP services. Some FSSP sites are already being forced to integrate the invalid (fake) Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Mess of 1969 into their New Latin Mess of 1962 services. FSSP religious houses that simulate the New Latin Mess will be closed to the public. FSSP presbyters are being required to swear a loyalty oath to the Vatican II Anti-council's heretical Modernist "liturgies."

Now the FSSP and the other "Indult" groups, who in a recent conference bent the knee to Bergoglio, are on the spot for their very existence. It is clear, as it has been to us TRADITIO Fathers from 1988, when the FSSP was formed by Newchurch in a panic reaction to Traditional Catholic Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre's consecration of four traditional bishops, that the FSSP would become the subject of yet another bait-and-switch tactic by Newchurch and its Newpopes. They would be let alone for a few years while they would become fat and sassy pigs; then they would be butchered. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]

Traditional Catholics, the FSSP should never have sold out to the apostate Newchurch of the New Order in the first place. You cannot operate as Catholic within an apostate sect that is even worse than the Lutherans or Episcopalians. Now, if the FSSP wishes to survive, it needs to find the guts to get out of Newchurch -- which is certainly not the Catholic Church -- and go independent. If it doesn't, within a decade, they will be completely swallowed up in the apostasy. In fact, the FSSP has now been exposed as never having been traditional in the first place.

Francis-Bergoglio's Religious Congregation Orders Large "Traditionalist" School System Closed
The Heralds of the Gospel Have Courageously Told Bergoglio that He Has No Authority over Them

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Heralds of the Gospel

A Few of the 3,000 Members
Of the Heralds of the Gospel
A "Traditionalist" Group Operating in Brazil
It Was Approved by JPII-Wojtyla in 2001
But Is "Too Traditionalist" For
The Marxist/Modernist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio
Who Has Ordered the Heralds Shut Down
But the Heralds Counter
That They Operate under the Civil Authority
And Have Told Bergoglio to Go Pound Sand

Francis-Bergoglio's Newcongregation for Religious on September 10, 2021, ordered schools run by the Heralds of the Gospel, a traditionalist-leaning group in Brazil, which Bergoglio calls "ultra-conservative," to be closed. Any Newchurcher who is Neo-con, Ultra-conservative, or Traditionalist is anathema to the Marxist/Modernist Newpope. The Heralds may have some problems to fix -- apparently far fewer than those found in Novus Ordo-run Newparochian schools and Newdioceses -- but such a universal closure order is unprecedented, whereas criminals like the serial paedophile criminal Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick, are allowed to continue committing vile crimes for years with impunity.

The Heralds of the Gospel number 3,000 members and was founded in 1960, associated with Plinio Correa de Oliveira, an avowed enemy of Communism and the Modernist heresy condemned by Pope St. Pius X, but encouraged by the Newchurch of the New Order, founded in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council. They have reacted to Bergoglio's closure order by telling him to go pound sand because their schools are "autonomous civil institutions," not subject to Newchurch's control. The Heralds also operate a television channel, radio stations, a press agency, and internet sites.

Brazil has a strong traditionalist following. Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre's colleague, Bishop Antonio de Castro Mayer, refused ever to implement the invalid (fake) New Mess of 1969 in his diocese of Campos, Brazil, and Bishop Richard Williamson, of the Catholic Resistance, consecrated a traditional bishop for Brazil, Dom Tomas Aquino Ferreira da Costa, in 2016. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by La Croix.]

Traditional Catholics, just like the FSSP, the Heralds of the Gospel were originally approved as an international association of Newpontifical right by JPII-Wojtyla. But now the "traditionalist" organization has run afoul of the apostate Francis-Bergoglio because of its "rigidity." This is one of Bergoglio's favorite code words for traditionalists who believe in Catholic dogma. Bergoglio has more than forty other documented terms that he has used for traditionalists, some of them filthy, like "coprophagics" (shit- eaters). Just as we TRADITIO Fathers have predicted since their fabrication in 1988 and thereafter, the necks of the New Latin Mess groups like the FSSP are clearly on the line.

Francis-Bergoglio Experiences Another Narcissistic Fit
Now He Fantasizes: They Want Me Dead!

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Francis-Bergoglio Gestures:
I Feel a Narcissistic Fit Coming On
Bergoglio Experienced Just Such a Fit
In a Leaked Private Meeting
With Fellow Marxist-Modernist Newjesuits
He Fantasized that People Wanted Him Dead
And that Just Condemnation
Of His Heresy and Apostasy
Is the "Work of the Devil"
In Whom He Has Indicated He Does Not Believe

JPII- Wojtyla lost it in his later years because of the Parkinson's Disease that affected him mind. Now Francis-Bergoglio is losing it to his Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD), which seems now to be turning into paranoia. On his September 12-15, 2021, Newpapal junket to Slovakia, Bergoglio was later to be called out by the Hungarian Prime Minister for allowing Christianity to perish because of Bergoglio's attempts to force European nations to support mass migration from the Mid-East into Europe.

Now Bergoglio has told his fellow Modernist/Marxist Newjesuits in Bratislava, Slovakia, on September 12, that people wanted him to die when he was in a Rome hospital having part of his bowels removed because of a severe stricture caused by diverticulitis. Bergoglio's narcissistic fit occurred behind closed doors, but was leaked to the press.

He then railed at an unidentified "large Catholic [sic] television channel" that "has no hesitation in continually speaking ill of the [New]pope.” Bergoglio made no acknowledgment of that fact that during his regime he has continually preached doctrinal and moral heresy, as well as participated in fake "liturgies." So far has Bergoglio fallen from the Catholic Faith that even several Newcardinals have now demanded that he abdicate from the Newpapacy.

Like a good paranoiac, Bergoglio characterizes any just condemnation of his heresy and apostasy, in accordance with traditional Catholic theology, to be "the work of the Devil." Yet Bergoglio has previously made statements that indicate he does not believe in the Devil. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the La Civiltà Cattolica.]

Traditional Catholics, paranoiacs may be clinically deranged, but they are not stupid. Bergoglio knows the truth somewhere in his contorted mind. He admits that he is (rightly) viewed as a "Communist," who focuses on "social issues," not anything of religion, let alone the true Catholic religion. It is a common symptom among narcissists that they typically show no self-awareness, but are entirely self-focused on their own fabricated world.

Francis-Bergoglio Mentions the 175th Anniversary of the Apparition at La Salette
But Does Not Advert to Its Message about the Apostasy of the Newpopes

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Francis-Bergoglio & Benedict-Ratzinger

Are Francis-Bergoglio and Benedict-Ratzinger
The Two "Worm-ridden, Servile, Doubtful Popes"
Referred to in the Message of the Putative Apparition
At La Salette, France, in 1846
Which Observes Its 175th Anniversary in 2021
The Message Also Predicted:
"Rome Will Lose the Faith
And Become the Seat of the Anti-Christ"?

September 19, 1846, marks the 175th anniversary of the putative apparition of the Blessed Virgin Mary as the "Woman in Tears," occurring to two children in La Salette, France. The message of the apparition is chilling and suggests the current-day situation of the Newchurch of the New Order. On the anniversary date in 2021, Francis-Bergoglio adverted to the apparition, but did not address its content, which may refer to himself and the Newchurch. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Vatican Press Office.]

In one part of the message, one of the children, Melanie, reported the "Woman in Tears" saying: "Rome will lose the Faith and become the seat of the Antichrist." The Abbé Combe, who personally spoke to Melanie and published the 1904 edition of the message added:

I have from Melanie that the Church will be eclipsed in this sense, that (1) one will not know which is the true pope; (2) for a time the holy Sacrifice of the Mass will cease to be offered in churches and also in houses, so there will be no more public worship. But Melanie saw that yet the holy Sacrifice would not cease: it would be offered in caves, in tunnels, in barns, and in alcoves.

This part of the message could suggest the current situation of the post Vatican II Anti-council's (1962-1965) fake Newchurch of the New Order, which has tried to supplant the true Catholic Church, which is now continued outside small churches, chapels, and oratories outside Newchurch.

In another part of the message Melanie stated what is known as the "Prophecy of Two Popes":

I didn't see, I don't see, any Great Pope or Great Monarch before an extremely great tribulation, horrifying, terrible and general for all Christendom. But before that time, twice there will be a short lived peace; two worm-ridden [deux papes vermoulus], servile, doubtful popes.

Traditional Catholics, the Church teaches that no miracle or apparition outside of Sacred Scripture is of required belief -- not La Salette, not Fatima, not Lourdes. Yet the insights of the La Salette message and its possible application to the present-day situation are certainly food for thought.

Hungarian Prime Minister Calls out Francis-Bergoglio during Newpapal Junket to Slovakia
For Strong-arming European Countries to Admit Anti-Christian Mass Migrants from the Middle East

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Viktor Orban & Francis-Bergoglio

Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban
Took on Francis-Bergoglio's Strong-arming
European Leaders to Admit Mass Migrants
A Policy that Is Leading to a Documented Decline
Of Christianity in Europe
Hungary Has Not Participated in the Programme
As a Result Hungary Has Not Suffered
The National Unrest and Crime
That Has Occurred Elsewhere in Europe
And Has Preserved Its Christian Culture

Although the reporting is mixed, several sources have stated that on his latest Newpapal junket, this time to Slovakia September 12-15, 2021, Francis-Bergoglio was called out by Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban for allowing Christianity to perish because of Bergoglio's attempts to force European nations to support mass migration from the Mid-East into Europe. Those nations (though not Hungary) that capitulated to Bergoglio's attempts to strong-arm Europeans, such as Germany, have backed off because of hostility from the European populations to the mass migration.

The Deputy Prime Minister, Balazs Orban, sent out a message on September 12, that the Prime Minister had handed Bergoglio a copy of a letter from a 13th-century Hungarian king to Pope Innocent IV in 1250, asking for Rome’s help to defeat an onslaught of foreign Tartar invaders, implying a parallel to the situation in the 21st century. Innocent ignored the request, and later Hungary had to fight a bloody war against the Tartars. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by CBS News.]

Traditional Catholics, Hungary has been a shining light in rebuffing Francis-Bergoglio's efforts to "globalize" Europe and has instead fought to preserve Europe's Christian heritage. As a result Hungary has not suffered the national unrest and crime that has occurred in such countries as Germany, which saw gang-rapes by mass migrants in front of Cologne Cathedral on New Year's Eve 2015.


Will It or Won't It? The Blood of St. Januarius Is Supposed to Liquefy
Annually on His Feastday, but Has Failed Thrice during the Newchurch Period

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Why Isn't It Working for Me?
Francis-Bergoglio Holds the Reliquarium
Containing the Blood of the Early Christian Martyr
St. Januarius of Naples
Which Is Supposed to Liquefy Three Times a Year
In 2016 It Didn't Liquefy for Bergoglio
And the Following Year the Town of Nursia
Suffered an Earthquake Killing 3,000

Three times a year the blood of the early Neopolitan Christian martyr, St. Januarius, contained in an ampulla in the Cathedral of the Assumption of Mary in Naples, is supposed to liquefy: on September 19, the Saint's feastday; on the Saturday before the first Sunday of May, when the Saint's relics arrived in Naples: and on December 16, when the Saint is said to have spared Naples from a devastating eruption of Mount Vesuvius.

When the St. Januarius was martyred under the reign of the Roman emperor Diocletian (284-305), a woman named Eusebia is said to have collected his blood, which now is kept in the Naples Cathedral. Since 1389 the blood has liquefied. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, during the era of the Newchurch of the New Order, the putative miracle has failed already on three occasions, and disaster has resulted. Once in 1980, under Newpope JPII-Wojtyla, an earthquake in Naples killed 3,000 people and destroyed thousands of homes. In 2016, under Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, earthquakes hit Nursia, St. Benedict's native town. Most recently, in 2020, again under Bergoglio, the height of the Red China Virus pandemic was being reached. Make of that what you will.

That His Sellout to Communist China
Was a "Mistake"
But He Refuses to Change Course
Meanwhile the Communist Chinese Party
Is Now Selecting Newbishops for Newchurch
While the Government Razes Churches
And Persecutes Newchurch Clergy and Laity

The Marxist/Modernist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio admitted in a September 1, 2021, interview that he made a "mistake" in selling out his Newvatican to Red China, essentially allowing the Communist Chinese Party and Dictator Xi Xinping to select Newbishops for Newchurch in Red China. Bergoglio is not changing course, though. He will keep jawboning with the Communists to no end.

Bergoglio's 2018 Concordat with Xinping has also seen Newchurch bishops and presbyters forced to take loyalty oaths to atheistic Communism. Bergoglio has been conducting a pogrom of his own within Newchurch. Newcardinal Joseph Zin, of Hong Kong, who has repeatedly denounced the Concordat, has been frozen out, and Newvatican officials opposed to the sellout have been demoted. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Vatican News.]

Traditional Catholics, Dictator Xinping has been savagely persecuting Newchurch clergy and laity, razing churches, and invading homes to clear them of Catholic devotional items, replacing these with framed pictures of the Dictator. According to sources at Newvatican, Bergoglio has thrown in the towel, believing that Newvatican has no influence over the atheistic regime.

The Floodgates Open: Francis-Bergoglio Let the Infamous Newcardinal McCarrick Skate
Now a Presbyter Has Come Forward to Charge McCarrick with Sexual Assault and Battery

The Third Paedophile Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio
Embraces Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick
Who Is Now Facing a Floodgate of Sex-crime Charges
Bergoglio Served as McCarrick's Accomplice
Refusing to Do Anything against the Man
Because He Raised Huge Sums of Money
For Bergoglio and His Predecessor, Benedict-Ratzinger
Now Newchurch's Hand Has Been Forced by the Courts
Where McCarrick Is Now on Trial

It seems that the infamous sex criminal Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick, whom Benedict-Ratzinger and Francis-Bergoglio basically let skate for his rampant sex-crimes, because he raised huge sums of money for the two Newpopes, is facing an opening floodgate of charges against him.

McCarrick is currently standing trial for three counts of sexual assault and battery on a minor. McCarrick was arraigned on the charges September 3, 2021, and proceedings are now continuing. Three days later a Newchurch presbyter charged McCarrick with sexual assault and battery on at least three occasions. Another Newchurch employee charged him with sexual assault and battery, which McCarrick was said to have committed in Newark, New Jersey's Newcathedral.

McCarrick was even found to have committed one of the most serious of sins, solicitation in Confession. In reality, however, Newchurch does not have that sacrament because it replaced the Sacrament of Penance with a non-sacramental, invalid (fake) "Rite of Reconciliation" in 1973. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, this is just the beginning. The history has been that once one victim comes forward, other victims of Newchurch clergy find the courage to file charges of their own. Newcardinal McCarrick is not the only gross sex criminal in Newchurch. Every week it is reported that yet another Newbishop, or even Newcardinal, is fingered, as Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust continues unabated under Francis-Bergoglio.

Of the Italian Catholic Poet of Dante Aligheri
On September 14, 2021
Dante's Masterpiece, La Divina Commedia
(The Divine Comedy)
In Three Parts: Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven
Has Been Highly Praised by Many Popes
For Its "Catholic Theology in Verse"
Pope Benedict XV Called Him
"The Greatest of Catholic Artists"

September 14, 2021, marks the 700th anniversary of the death of the Italian Catholic poet and Third Order Franciscan Dante Alighieri (ca. 1265-1321). Many of the popes greatly admired Dante's masterpiece, La Divina Commedia (The Divine Comedy), describing Hell, Purgatory, and Heaven.

On the 600th anniversary of Dante's death in 1921, Pope Benedict XV called him "the greatest of Catholic artists." His work has been characterized as "Catholic theology in verse" or "[St. Thomas] Aquinas in verse." In addition, he also wrote several Latin prose works, including De Monarchia, in which he explained why by Providence Christ, the "Prince of Peace," was born when he was, an analogue of the first Roman emperor, Augustus, who brought the Pax Romana to the entire Roman world.

For those of you who wish to read Dante's monumental work, we recommend the version by John D. Sinclair for the Oxford University Press. First of all, it is a bilingual edition, with Dante's original Italian on the left-hand pages and Sinclair's version on the right-hand pages. It is always good to remember when you are reading a "translation," that you are reading at best a poor approximation to the original. Moreover, Sinclair's is a relatively-literal prose translation, not a half-baked effort to use English verse, which forces changes in the literal rendition of the text to suit English verse requirements.

Each Sinclair volume of the three that Dante wrote (Inferno, Purgatorio, Paradiso) has a detailed table of contents, a full schema of the volume, and ample footnotes to explain obscure references. It is available in both hardback and paperback at a reasonable price, around 20.00 USD.

The Fully Traditional Latin Mass Grows

This Year, for the First Time in Its History
The Ordo Sold out before Half the Year Was Out
Indicating that Traditional Catholics
Are Returning to the True Traditional Latin Mass
Before the Corruptions of the 1950s and 1960s

The numbers tell the story. The Newchurch of the New Order and its "New Mess" of 1969 are tanking. According the recent Pew Research Center study and even Newchurch's own Center for the Applied Research in the Apostolate study, attendance at the Novus Ordo Mess is now in the low single-digit percentages. The corrupt "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962 is not doing well either. It was virtually suppressed by Francis-Bergoglio on July 16, 2021, and Newdioceses around the world are announcing cancellation of existing sites.

But the fully Traditional Latin Mass, that is, the Mass as it existed before the corruptions of the 1950s and 1960s, engineered by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini under Pius XII, seems to be flourishing as never before. For the first time in its long and illustrious history going back to the early 20th century, the St. Lawrence Press has announced that its Ordo for 2021 sold out even before half the year was out, and this year there was even a reprint. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the St. Lawrence Press.]

Since the early 1900s the St. Lawrence Press produces the best and most complete annual Ordo available, the Ordo Recitandi Officii Divini Sacrique Peragendi [Order of Reciting the Divine Office and Carrying out the Sacred Rite], entirely in Latin and in the traditional form, following the Rubrics of Pope St. Pius X for the Universal Calendar (Roman Rite) of the Church as amended up to 1950. It contains detailed information about the Mass and Divine Office for each day of the year, which priests and the most devout laypeople use, much more complete in its detail than any calendar can give. Additional pages give the rubrics for Solemn Votive Masses, rubrics for conventual Masses and private votive Masses, and the text for the movable feasts sung on Epiphany. For further information, click on the TRADITIO Network's Traditional Liturgical Calendar department.

Traditional Catholics, there are many signs indicating that Traditional Catholics are returning to the true Traditional Latin Mass before the corruptions of the 1950s and 1960s. The Vatican II Anti-council's corrupted New Latin Mess of 1962 is becoming increasing rejected for the fraud that it is. It is not "traditional." Rather, it contains some of the worst aberrations, introduced in the 1950s and carried almost untouched into the invalid (fake) "New Mess" of 1969.

A Reader Asks: "Aren't Traditional Catholic Priests Supposed to Say
The Words of Absolution Audibly to the Penitent?"

From: Maria
Rituale Romanum

The Traditional Rituale Romanum
The Official Latin Manual
For the Rites of the Sacraments
Instructs the Confessor
To Impart the Absolution Aloud
Together with the Accompanying Prayers
The Penitent Should Listen Silently
Any Act of Contrition
Should Be Said by the Penitent
Before Presenting Himself
For the Sacrament of Penance

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

I've been wondering why all the Traditional Catholic priests I've been to for confession for more than twenty years do not say the words of absolution audibly to me. I even told our priest about it, and he did not reply, but continued to give me the "silent treatment." All these years only two elderly Traditional Catholic priests said the words of absolution so that they could be heard clearly by me. That is what makes me think that the practice of imparting the absolution aloud is the true traditional practice. Are younger traditional priests shy, ashamed, insecure, or what?


In the traditional Rituale Romanum, the official Latin manual for the rites of the Sacraments, to the instruction to the confessor for imparting absolution and the accompanying prayers is "dicit". In the ordinary context, this Latin word would indicate an audible utterance. The priest should say the absolution aloud in the full form with the Misereatur preceding and the Passio Domini Nostri following (except for just cause in the latter two cases) while the penitent listens silently.

We deplore the impious practice of a penitent babbling in the vulgar tongue an Act of Contrition on top of the priest pronouncing the sacramental Latin form of the absolution. Traditional Catholic sacramental theology teaches that the act of presenting oneself for confession already indicates contrition for sin. The Rituale makes no provision of an Act of Contrition to be uttered during the confession by the penitent. Such an Act should take place before the confession as part of his eliciting contrition and a firm purpose of amendment.


Traditional Catholic Director Mel Gibson Publicly Denounces Newchurch as "Sick"
He Calls out Its Fake Bishops as "Monsters in Miters," Who Are Not Defending Catholic Teaching

Gibson's Address Encouraged Newchurchers
To Fight against Their Heretical Fake "Bishops"

On September 10, 2021, Traditional Catholic actor-producer-director Mel Gibson publicly condemned Newchurch, joining Newarchbishop Carlo Vigano, formerly Newchurch's Newpapal Legate (Ambassador) to the United States. Gibson gave an address for the Rally and Rosary of Reparation held in Chicago, Illinois, which was protesting Newcardinal Blase Cupich, who allowed the lesbian, Protestant mayor of Chicago to receive the Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid.

Vigano and Gibson agree that "sickness afflicts" the Newchurch of the New Order. They agree that the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) should be scrapped altogether because it set up a "parallel, counterfeit [New]church" to "eclipse" the true Catholic Church and because the "hirelings" in Newchurch are not defending authentic Catholic teaching

Gibson took the opportunity to reveal that while he was producing his 2004 blockbuster film, "The Passion of the Christ," which depicts, in a literal, Biblical way, Christ's passion and death on the cross, he went to the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops" for support,. They, however, turned their back on him. Nevertheless, rank-and-file Newchurchers flocked to the film, as did Evangelicals, who organized busloads of viewers to theaters.

In his address Gibson encouraged Newchurchers to fight against their heretical "bishops," who have not even been validly consecrated after Newchurch switched to a Protestantized Ordinal in 1968. As such, Newchurch bishops are not real bishops and have no episcopal or priestly authority whatsoever. They are no better than Protestant ministers. Gibson, together a growing number of Catholics, holds that after the death of Pius XII in 1958, the papacy is vacant. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]

Traditional Catholics, Mel Gibson is currently working on the sequel to his 2004 blockbuster "Passion of the Christ," which is entitled "Christ: The Resurrection" and follows the history of the Catholic Church along the lines of the "Acts of the Apostles," the fifth book of the New Testament. Gibson is rubbing the noses of the Newpopes and Newbishops, calling them what they are: fakes, and certainly not Catholic. Gibson's new film will be yet another devastating blow to the Newchurch of the New Order, which is rapidly sinking into oblivion, liturgically, doctrinally, morally, and financially. Meanwhile, he continues to fund and maintain the Traditional Catholic Holy Family Church in Agoura Hills, California, which he built from the proceeds of "The Passion of the Christ."

Francis-Bergoglio's Suppression of the New Latin Mess of 1962
Gains Steam as Paris Newarchbishop Raises the Suppression up Another Notch

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Michel Aupetit

What Can I Do?
I'm only Following Francis-Bergoglio's Orders
Shrugs the Newarchbishop of Paris, Michel Aupetit
As He Shut down Virtually All
"Extraordinary" New Latin Messes of 1962
Traditional Funerals Are also Suppressed
Effective Immediately

On September 8, 2021, Francis-Bergoglio's Newarchbishop of Paris, France, Michel Aupetit, raised the suppression of the Vatican II Anti-council's New Latin Mess of 1962 (aka erroneously as "Extraordinary") up another notch by shutting down, effective immediately, virtually every New Latin Mass in the Paris Newarchdiocese in accordance with Bergoglio's order "Traditionis custodes."

Aupetit had advance access to the implementing decrees that are about to be issued for Bergoglio's July 16, 2021, order. The suppression includes Sundays, as well as weekdays. New Latin funerals will also be suppressed. No presbyter may use the New Latin Mess without being investigated and obtaining prior written approval.

It's all a Newchurch sham anyway. Since 1968 Newchurch presbyters have not been ordained as priests in the Sacrament of Holy Orders "to offer the sacrifice of the Mass for the living and the dead," but shave only been"installed" under a Protestantized New Ordinal that authorizes presbyters merely "to preside over the assembly of the people," just like Protestant ministers. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]

Traditional Catholics, all this folderol about the New Latin Mess is pointless anyway. It should be shut down. The "Extraordinary" Mess of 1962 is the bastardized spawn of the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) and the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, who just seven years later went on to modify it into the invalid (fake) "New Mess" of 1969, which Benedict-Ratzinger in 2007 officially declared to be the "Ordinary" service of the Newchurch of the New Order. Ratzinger himself did not once simulate the New Latin Mess as the Newpope of the Newchurch.

Is Francis-Bergoglio Becoming a Jew?
He Is Now Intimating that Jews Do Not Have to Convert to Christ

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Francis-Bergoglio Does Obeisance
To a Jewish Rabbi
By Kissing His Hand
(The Rabbi Did Not Kiss Bergoglio's Ring)
Bergoglio Has Now Backed Off
From One of the Few Times
He Actually Taught Something Christian:
That the Old Testament Is Obsolete
And that Jews Must Convert to Christ
Now He Is Walking That Back
Because the Rabbis Bashed Him

Even a broken clock gets the time right twice a day. The apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio finally got something right when he indicated at his General Audience on August 11, 2021, that the Jewish law in the Penteteuch of the Old Testament is obsolete. St. Paul, once a leader of the Jews, directly states in several of his Epistles that the Old Covenant is obsolete now that the New Covenant of Jesus Christ has come. This is dogma, to deny which makes one a heretic.

On September 10, 2021, Bergoglio's President of the Newpontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity and of the Newvatican Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews, Newcardinal Kurt Koch, tried to explain, at the behest of Bergoglio, to Jewish leaders that Bergoglio didn't really mean what he said, that Jews may maintain the Mosaic Law and not convert to Christ. Newchurch has given up on conversions, adhering to the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965)'s Oecumenical Heresy, that "all religions are true" and that "we all worship the same god." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]

So far has this heresy consumed the Newchurch of the New Order that the heretic Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger openly taught this heresy as well -- in fact he himself may have authored it at the Anti-council -- and composed a new prayer to replace traditional Catholic litanical prayer that for two millennia from Apostolic times has been chanted as follows on Good Friday for two millennia::

Oremus et pro perfidis Iudaeis: ut Deus et Dominus noster auferat velamen de cordibus eorum; ut et ipsi agnoscant Iesus Chrstum Dominum nostrum. Let us pray also for the faithless Jews: that our God and Lord would withdraw the veil from their hearts: that they also may acknowledge our Lord Jesus Christ.

Traditional Catholics, Bergoglio meanwhile has invited an extremist Israeli rabbi to give a "Biblical reflection" at a September 27-28, 2021, conference in Newrome. Rabbi Avraham Steinberg calls those who do not get the China Virus vaccine "murders who should be punished" and maintains that it is "morally permissible to force vaccines on the entire population." Steinberg claims that Deuteronomy "obliges everyone to be vaccinated." Other rabbis have condemned Steinberg as "misleading" and "hateful," but this is the extremist Israeli rabbi with whom Bergoglio has aligned himself. Bergoglio recently violated precedent by appointing two Jewish rabbis to the so-called Newpontifical Academy of Life.

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

Can you recommend internet channels or web sites with solid Traditional Catholic sermons? Some are not updated, and others mix in sermons by Newchurch groups like the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) or Institute of Christ the King (ICR), who claim to be "traditionalist," but are integrally associated with the heretical Newchurch of the New Order.


You are prudent to be suspicious. There are many laymen and Newchurch clerics popping out of the woodwork these days purporting to be "traditionalist," but they are really front men for the New Order. When the New Latin Mess of 1962 was being pushed, they were all over. Now, with Francis-Bergoglio's suppression of that Mess, they're not so popular.

We have not found any that we could unquestionably recommend. In any case, you might consider that you don't need updated sermons. You are probably retaining only 20% of what you hear anyway, so repeated listening (or better, reading) would be more advantageous than something updated. In case you haven't studied them yet, there are Audio Sermons from the TRADITIO Fathers available.

You can also click on FAQ 5: What Traditional Catholic Resources Do You Recommend? in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics) department for detailed information about how to select Traditional Catholic resources.

Of course, your primary source should be sermons, catechesis, and Biblical exegesis from your own traditional Catholic priest. If you haven't found a truly traditional Catholic site yet, click on the Official Traditional Catholic Directory department.

Francis-Bergoglio Receives a Trinity of Bullets

Three 9-millimeter Bullets
Were Mailed to Francis-Bergoglio

Bergoglio Has Been Feverishly Rooting Out
The Last Vestiges of Anything Catholic
From His Newchurch of the New Order
To Replace It with a Marxist-style Autocracy

It was bound to happen. The apostasy of Francis-Bergoglio from the true Catholic Church has "gone viral," as they say, in the last month, and his Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD), developing into paranoia, has flared up so much that he seems to have set himself on a path of self-destruction. Now someone apparently wants to accelerate that process.

As if to underscore that fact, an envelope containing a trinity of 9-millimetre bullets was intercepted in a mail-sorting center in Italy. The package, addressed to "Il Papa – Città del Vaticano," was sent from France, where Bergoglio is intensely unpopular. The envelope contained a message purportedly referring to Bergoglio's continued money-laundering through his Vatican Bank.

Francis-Bergoglio is slated to meet with Jewish representatives in an oecumenical shivaree September 12-15, 2021, as well as attend the International Eucharistic [Sic] Congress in Budapest, just a month after the bullet warning was mailed. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Newsweek.]

Traditional Catholics, in the last month Francis-Bergoglio has been working at an even more feverish pitch to root out the last vestiges of anything Catholic in his Newchurch and replace it with a Marxist-style autocracy. Recently he even called the first pope, St. Peter, a "hypocrite" and a "schismatic." Bergoglio has also been on a pogrom to root out even conservative Newchurchers from his New Order sect.

Aka Erroneously as the "Extraordinary" Mess
Newchurch Now Barely Recognizes Them

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

I noticed that in the TRADITIO Network's Traditional Liturgical Calendar department for the month of September 2021, the Ember Days are given as September 15, 17, and 18. However, I have noticed on Newchurch "Mess of 1962" (aka erroneously as "Extraordinary") calendars, they are on the wrong days, one week later. Why is the untraditional "Mess of 1962" wrong on this point?


You have discovered the "Extraordinary" Mess is actually a fraud. It is the Vatican II Anti-council's "Mess of 1962," which contains significant corruptions. Among many other corruptions the 1962 Mess changed the Ember Days from their traditional dates. It also dumped many Marian and Saints' feastdays or moved them around mercilessly to other dates, so that people couldn't even figure out their Saints' day. The 1962 Mess is most certainly not the Traditional Latin Mass.

This butchery is in no way Catholic, and Traditional Catholics do not recognize the seriously-flawed 1962 Mess, designed by the same Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini who fabricated the invalid (fake) New Order Mess of 1969, implemented by Newchurch for its own mandatory worldwide use just seven years later. Traditional Catholics, to the contrary, follow the fully Traditional Latin Mass and the traditional Catholic Missale Romanum as it existed before the corrupting changes introduced by Bugnini starting in 1951.

For further information, click on the TRADITIO Network's Traditional Latin Mass, Divine Office, and Sacraments department in the section "The Descent into the Black Hole of the Liturgical 'New Order.'"

Those who have not been traditionally catechized may not even be aware of the Ember Days. The Ember Days are days of fast and abstinence traditionally prescribed at the beginning of the seasons. "Ember" comes from the Latin word tempora, meaning "seasons." Ember days were first decreed by Pope St. Callixtus in the third century. They were prescribed for the entire Church by Pope Gregory VII (1073-1085) for the Wednesday, Friday, and Saturday of the traditional weeks during each season.

In October 2021
But Bergoglio Claims Ignorance
Bergoglio even Restored Zanchetta
To the His Financial Adminstration in 2020
After He Had Been Suspended by Newvatican
For His Financial Misconduct

There are few Newchurch officials closer to the Marxist/Modernist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio than Gustavo Zanchetta, Newbishop of Oran, Argentina. Now the Argentine public prosecutor's office has announced that Bergoglio's buddy will face trial for sex crimes October 12-15, 2021. After Zanchetta was exposed in 2017, Bergoglio scandalized the world by giving his intimate Zanchetta a post in his bosom in Newvatican.

But if Bergoglio looked the other way, the long arm of Argentinean law did not let Zanchetta escape. Two victims will testify against Zanchetta for crimes aggravated by their perpetrator being an "officially recognized minister of religion." Yet Bergoglio feigns knowing nothing, seeing nothing, hearing nothing, just as he claimed, against documented evidence, that he knew nothing about his Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick's sexual assault of children and Newseminarians up and down the East Coast of the United States. McCarrick too is now on trial for his crimes.

Newbishop Zanchetta has been featured in pornographic films, which will be introduced at his trial. But Zanchetta's crimes apparently didn't stop there. A police raid found that he was embezzling money from his Argentinean province for work that he never performed. Yet Bergoglio whitewashed his intimate's crimes. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]

Traditional Catholics, even though Newvatican suspended Zanchetta for his financial misconduct in 2019, Bergoglio allowed his intimate to return to work at Newvatican's Financial Administration in 2020. The Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church, is so corrupt at this point that the current apostate Newpope has no compunctions about associating with sex criminals and embezzlers. It's all so reminiscent of the Temple "authorities" like Caiphas two thousand years ago.


"Extraordinary" Mess Societies Cave in to Francis-Bergoglio on New Latin Mess
In an Act of Cowardice, They Capitulated to Get Whatever Remaining Crumbs Bergoglio May Drop

Is the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP)
Now Going to Turn Its Back on the New Latin Mess
And Start Going "Ordinary" Novus Ordo?

They Fear the Announced Inquisition
In Which Bergoglio Will Likely Find Them
Not Enthusiastic Supporters of the Vatican II Anti-Council
And Will Effect Their Full or Partial Suppression

The "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess societies -- Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), Institute of Christ the King (ICR), and Institute of the Good Shepherd (IBP), together with nine smaller groups -- met on August 31, 2021, in France and have sent their capitulation to Francis-Bergoglio's essential suppression of the New Latin Mess of 1962. They beat their breasts to Bergoglio "if party, spirit, or pride has polluted our hearts."

The "Extraordinary" superiors' cowardly reaction is no surprise. Bergoglio has already announced Newvatican inquisitions against each of the groups in his Order "Traditionis custodes" of July 16, 2021. Bergoglio has already initiated such inquisitions in the past, and usually the result has been the suppression of the institution. The society superiors are shaking in their boots that Bergoglio will suppress them, so they are prepared to accept whatever insignificant crumbs Bergoglio drops on the floor before them.

The superiors admitted in a September 2, 2021, joint statement: "We feel suspected, marginalized, banished." What they seem clueless to realize is that this is exactly the effect that Bergoglio was aiming for. Shamefully, the superiors swore their allegiance to the heretic Vatican II Anti-council, confirming their own status as heretics from the Catholic Faith. In fact, they sank to using anti-Catholic Vatican II gobbledegook to make their case. It won't work. The Newpopes themselves are the masters of gobbledegook. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]

Traditional Catholics, the "Extraordinary" superiors are being slammed among Neocon Newchurchers as sycophants engaging in "pure appeasement." However, the critics themselves are the appeasers. The only redemption for them is to abandon the Newchurch of the New Order as not the Catholic Church and follow St. Paul's dictum:to hold on firmly to Tradition: "Tenete traditiones, quas didicistis, sive per sermonem sive per epistulam nostram" (2 Thessalonians 2:14/DRV).

Francis-Bergoglio Doubles down against the New Latin Mess
Heretically Claims that Reading the Epistle and Gospel in Latin Is "Like Laughing at the Word of God"

An Angry Francis-Bergoglio
Digs in His Heels against the New Latin Mess
In His Newchurch of the New Order
He Again Calls Those Who Support It "Ideologues"
He Forbids the Epistle and Gospel
To Be Read or Chanted in Latin at the Altar
Joining Himself to the Protestant Heretics
Against the Dogmatic Council of Trent
Which Declared only St. Jerome's Latin Vulgate
To Be "Authentic"

In a September 2, 2021, interview for Spanish radio, Francis-Bergoglio doubled down on his August 16, 2021, Motu Proprio "Traditionis custodis," essentially banning the New Latin Mess of 1962, sometimes erroneously called the "Extraordinary" Mess," in his Newchurch of the New Order. In fact, he ridiculed parts of that Mess, saying that proclaiming the Epistle and Gospel in Latin, the Church's sacred language, is "like laughing at the Word of God." Bergoglio in his widely-criticized Motu Proprio had specifically ordered that "in these [New Latin Mess] celebrations the readings are to be proclaimed in the vernacular language."

Such a statement is heretically Protestant, as it directly contradicts teaching of the dogmatic Council of Trent, which recognizes only the Vulgate Latin version of the Scriptures to be "held as authentic and that no one dare or presume under any pretext whatsoever to reject it" (Sessio IV). But Bergoglio is certainly not known for his theological knowledge; he just doesn't care about anything Catholic.

In the interview Bergoglio clarified that presbyters wishing to simulate the New Latin Mess must now be investigated for loyalty to the Vatican II Anti-council and receive permission from Newrome to become a kind of "bi-ritual" presbyter, who must also simulate the Mess declared by Benedict-Ratzinger to be the "Ordinary" Mess of Newchurch, i.e., the invalid (fake) Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Vatican II New Mess of 1969. Bergoglio's statement indicates a complete rejection of the New Latin Mess as in any way "exclusive" or equal to the New Mess.

Bergoglio (rightly) pointed out that was Benedict-Ratzinger's own directive in the 2007 "Summorum pontificum" that required a re-evaluation. Bergoglio performed that evaluation and found that those attached to the New Latin Mess were often against the Vatican II Anti-council. He called these people "ideologues" -- a swear word for Bergoglio, who as a good Marxist/Modernist ideologue could not permit that. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]

Traditional Catholics, in case any Neocon Newchurcher was wishing for relief from a different Newpope soon (as if that would make any difference), Francis-Bergoglio stated in the interview that he has no problem from his recent surgery and has no intention whatsoever of abdicating. "It has never crossed my mind to abdicate," he stated. This is yet another promise that he has broken, as upon his election he said that he would remain in office only five years at the maximum.

The consecration will take place on the Feast of St. Michael the Archangel, September 29, 2021, at St. Gertrude the Great Church in West Chester, Ohio. Bishop Dolan is one of several Traditional Catholic bishops who function in the United States to preserve the Apostolic Succession.

The Newchurch of the New Order since 1968 no longer consecrates bishops in the Sacrament of Holy Orders. In that year it adopted a New Ordinal, based on Protestant models, which merely "installs" (Newchurch's own word) Newbishops in an invalid (fake) ceremony, similar to that used for Protestant "bishops." As Newchurch bishops are invalid (fake), they cannot ordain, but merely "install" (Newchurch's own word) presbyters (Newchurch's own word), who are as powerless as Protestant ministers to offer Mass or confect the Most Blessed Sacrament.

The new Traditional Catholic Bishop will be headquartered in Brazil and the St. Joseph Seminary that he heads.

Francis-Bergoglio's Pagan Cult of the Pachamama Fertility Goddess
Prays to the Idol in a Parody of the Pater Noster and Ave Maria

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Pachama Goddess

On October 4, 2019, Francis-Bergoglio Blessed
The Idol of the Pagan Nude and Pregnant Goddess
Pachama in the Vatican Gardens
While Heretic Newcardinals Knelt and Bowed
In Adoration of the Pagan Idol
Bergoglio Subsequently Installed the Idol
At the Altar in St. Peter's Archbasilica
Two Young Newchurchers Were So Scandalized
That They Threw the Idol into the Tiber River

The Newdiocese of Venado Tuerto in Argentina, as well as other Newdioceses in Latin American, has recognized Francis-Bergoglio's cult of the pagan fertility goddess Pachamama by publishing a prayer and praying to that idol on August 1, 2021. The prayer parodies the Pater Noster and Ave Maria. Bergoglio blessed and installed an idol of the pagan goddess, nude and pregnant, at the altar during a Mess in St. Peter's Archbasilica during the Amazonian Synod in October 2019. So repulsed were two young Austrian Newchurchers at the time that they threw the idol into the Tiber River.

Following Bergoglio's paganism, the Newchurchers in Argentina and in other countries in Latin America held a "religious ceremony," in which they chanted a prayer to the goddess and gave her sacrificial offerings, blaspheming the idol as the "Virgin Mary":

God bless you, Pachamama, sweet source of our life; be forever adored. Blessed are the fruits of your womb, our daily bread, blessed are you today and forever. Look with compassion, Holy Mother, upon the human pack of dogs that destroys you through ambition. Blessed be your clemency, Pachamama. My land is prey to madness. You are the source of life and joy. Pachamama, holy land, Holy Mother, Virgin Mary.

When a storm of complaints even from Newchurchers arose, the Newdiocese quoted Bergoglio directly to justify the pagan prayer. The Newdiocese said that "the intention was to communicate our communion with [Newpope] Francisco." This Marxist/Modernist Newpope is an advocate of the Vatican II Anti-council's Heresy of "Inculturation," which would import local pagan practices into worship. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Vatican News.]

Traditional Catholics, groups of Newchurchers were so incensed that they burned images of the Pachamama goddess and came close to burning images of the Marxist/Modernist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio in effigy. They claimed that his "bad example is dragging many souls by imitation down to Hell."

Pontifical North American College in Newrome Has Terminated All New Latin Messes of 1962
It Will No Longer Teach or Simulate Them, in accordance with Francis-Bergoglio's Order

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
North American College

Newrome's Pontifical North American College
Under Francis-Bergoglio's July 16, 2021, Order
Has Terminated Immediately
All "New Latin Messes"
Sometimes Erroneously Termed "Extraordinary"
The College, after 14 Years, Will No Longer
Train on or Simulate Such Messes
Liturgical Supplies Will No Longer Be Provided
Bergoglio Has Prohibited Any Additional New Latin Messes
And Those Existing Will Have to Be Scrutinized
For Conformity to Vatican II Anti-council Principles

The Pontifical North American College, the major seminary in Newrome, located on the Janiculum Hill, which trains Newseminarians for Newchurch dioceses in the U.S. and North America, has announced that in accordance with Francis-Bergoglio's July 16, 2021, Order "Traditionis custodes," all teaching and simulation of the New Latin Mass of 1962, sometimes erroneously termed "Extraordinary," will be terminated immediately. The Saturday New Latin Messes (never on Sunday!) simulated for the last fourteen years will be replaced by the invalid (fake) Novus Ordo Mess in Latin and by the Novus Ordo Mess in Spanish. The College will no longer provide liturgical supplies for the New Latin Mess.

The College noted that it had consulted "canonical counsel" and was told that because Newdiocesan bishops can no longer give permission for the use of the New Latin Mess outside their Newdioceses (and have very limited authority even within their own Newdioceses), no further training or simulation of this Mess will be permitted. Under the Bergoglian Order New Latin Messes cannot be simulated in Newparish churches, nor can new Messes be added. New presbyters installed (Newchurch has not ordained priests since 1968 in the Sacrament of Holy Orders) after July 16, 2021, need special permission from Newvatican to simulate the New Latin Mess. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, in fact, it is inaccurate even to call these services "New Latin Messes" because Bergoglio's Order requires, without exception, the most significant readings, the Epistle and the Gospel to be read in the vulgar tongues, never in Latin. The New Latin Mess, both now and before, is a fraud, certainly not the Traditional Latin Mass. Maybe this latest clampdown on the fraud will wake up the clueless Neocon Newchurchers to the truth that nothing Catholic is to be found in the Newchurch of the New Order.

A Reader Asks: "How Do I Dispose of a Blessed Rosary
That Is beyond Reasonable Repair?"

From: Scott
Broken Rosary

A Blessed Rosary Can Be Disposed Of
As Can Other Material Sacramentals
Such as Holy Water, Holy Cards, Bibles, and Missals
By Returning Them to the Earthly Elements
Earth, Air, Fire, or Water
Or the Sacramental Should Be Altered
So that Its Form No Longer Appears
To Be a Sacramental

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

How should I dispose of a blessed rosary that is beyond reasonable repair? I have a plastic rosary whose string broke, and I can't attach the crucifix to it properly. When I tried to repair it, it snapped apart at another place.


Material sacramentals are essentially devotional items, particularly blessed items, such as holy water, holy cards, bibles and missals, rosaries, etc.

When a sacramental, particularly a blessed sacramental, becomes so worn that it can no longer be used decorously, the sacramental should, as much as possible, be returned to the earthly elements: earth, air, fire, or water. Excess Holy Water, for example, can be poured into a suitable spot of earth, such as a garden. Excess incense can be burned into the air. A holy card or book can be burned. Excess blessed ashes can be poured into a body of water, such as a lake or ocean.

If such disposal is not convenient, at least the sacramental should be altered so that its form no longer appears to be a sacramental. For instance, a holy card can be torn into pieces and then disposed of. A statue can be broken into small pieces and then disposed of.

It should be noted that material sacramentals lose their blessing if they are substantially broken in such a way that they can no longer be used for their sacred purpose, of if they are sold by one individual to another for money. In the latter case, the item would have to be blessed again. However, if a person replaces one worn-out sacramental with another of the same kind (e.g., a scapular), it is not necessary to have the replacement scapular blessed.

Communist China Shuts down Pilgrimages to National Marian Shrine
Francis-Bergoglio Sold out His Newchurch to the Red Chinese with his 2018 Concordat

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Francis-Bergoglio Is Turning over His Newchurch
To the Atheistic Communists in Red China
Dictator Xi Jinping Has Now Prohibited Pilgrimages
To China's National Marian Shrine
And Ordered that All Bergoglio's Subjects
Participate in Festivities
For the 100th Anniversary of the Atheistic
Chinese Communist Party
As the Communist Dictator Xi
Imprisons and Kills Newbishops
Bergoglio Is Allowing Him to Fill the Vacancies
Numbering at Least Forty

The Communist goverment of Dictator Xi Jinping has now shut down pilgrimages to China's national Marian shrine, Our Lady of Sheshan, and has ordered Newchurchers in Red China to host instead celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the atheistic Chinese Communist Party. Marxist/Modernist Francis-Bergoglio's Newbishops and laymen are actively participating in the plans for the celebration of atheism.

In September 2018 Bergoglio signed a protocol with the Communist dictator, which gave Xi authority over Newchurch in China. Xi has been hunting down, consigning to concentration camps, and even killing Newchurch bishops and laymen and has been destroying Novus Ordo churches, convents, and seminaries throughout Red China. Bergoglio has been denounced by several of his own Newcardinals, including Hong Kong's Newcardinal Joseph Zen, for the sellout, and the international press has been hounding him for an explanation, but Bergoglio refuses to answer for his sellout.

Bergoglio's Newbishops and presbyters have been required to sign a statement that they support the atheistic Communist Party. Worship is closed to those under the age of 18, and only state-approval buildings can be used for services. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, forty vacancies for Newbishops are open, and Francis-Bergoglio is allowing Dictator Xi to fill them. Thus, Newchurch in Red China will be remade into outright atheists, as Xi replaces its Newbishops. In fact, Bergoglio has turned his Newchurch over to the atheists.

Newcardinal Cupich Bans Public Recitation of the Prayer to St. Michael
Which Pope Leo XIII Had Ordered to Be Publicly Recited after Simple Low Masses

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Leonine Prayers

The Preces, or "Leonine Prayers"
Ordered by Pope Leo XIII in 1886
To Be Recited after Simple Low Masses
Including the Powerful Prayer
To St. Michael the Archangel
"Against the Malice and Snares of the Devil"
The Newchurch of the New Order
Suppressed the Prayer in 1964
Many Catholics Have Been Wondering
Whether Newchurch's Suppression
Of This Powerful Prayer of Exorcism
May Be Contributing to Current Rapid Dissolution
Of Newchurch and Its Newpopes

As of August 22, 2021, the traditional feast of the Immaculate Heart of Mary, which Newchurch has axed, along with a number of other Marian feasts, it was announced by Newcardinal Blase Cupich, of Chicago, Illinois, one of the worst Modernist heretics in Newchurch, has banned the public recitation of the Prayer to St. Michael the Archangel, which has been recited after simple Low Masses since 1886 by the decree of Pope Leo XIII.

Of course, this latest ban is just more New Order nonsense. Traditional Catholics know that the prayer to St. Michael the Archangel is obligatorily to be recited after a simple Low Mass, following three Aves and the prayer "Deus, refugium nostrum" and is to be followed by the thrice-repeated invocation "Cor Iesu sacratissimum, miserere nobis." This obligation does not pertain to Masses "of some solemnity," e.g., those that have been preceded by the Hour of Terce of the Divine Office or the principal Mass on Sunday at which the Asperges has taken place. In 1964, the Prayer to St. Michael after Mass was suppressed throughout Newchurch by order of Paul VI-Montini, the Modernist apostate Newpope who promulgated every single one of the 16 heretical documents of the Vatican II Anti-council.

For the text of the Leonine Prayers, click on "Useful Latin Prayers / Orationes Latinae Utiles" in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics) department.

Traditional Catholics, even some Newchurch prelates have called for the recitation of this prayer, but only haphazardly, not as a regular follow-up to their invalid (fake) "Ordinary" New Mess or their Half Novus Ordo "Mess of 1962." In any case, in the Newchurch of the New Order, it's only a sham anyway, as the expression has it: "putting lipstick on a pig." In any case, many Catholics have been wondering whether Newchurch's suppression of this powerful prayer of exorcism to God's highest and most faithful Archangel may be contributing the current rapid dissolution of Newchurch.
