Just as we TRADITIO Fathers predicted, Francis-Bergoglio and his henchmen are proceeding rapidly and deliberately with the shutdown of the "Extraordinary" Half New Order New Latin Mess of 1962. Chicago, Illinois, the third largest Newarchdiocese in the United States, headed by Bergoglio's intimate Blase Cupich has announced a virtual shutdown of the "Extraordinary" Messes. Because Cupich is an intimate of Bergoglio, it is expected that Cupich's full-shut-down approach will be the model for Newdioceses across the United States.
Likely next on the chopping block is the St. John Cantius operation in Chicago, which was never "traditionalist," but has simulated on Sundays two Half New Order "Extraordinary" Messes, together with three Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Order Messes. St. John Cantius's former rector, presbyter Frank Phillips, was charged with sex crimes and expelled in 2018. Now the operation's new rector, presbyter Joshua Caswell, has already capitulated to Bergoglio and Cupich, pledging to remain faithful to the heretic Newcardinal and the apostate Newpope, as well as "Saint" John XXIII and "Saint" Paul VI-Montini, two phony Newsaints of Newchurch, both con-anized (Newchurch does not have valid canonizations) by Bergoglio. The rector proclaimed that even the "Extraordinary" Mess is not the core of the St. John Cantius operation, which is simply to "restore the sacred" -- whatever that means!
As of January 25, 2022, temporarily exceptions that may be made to allow the rare New Latin Mess of 1962 must be submitted in writing to the Newcardinal himself, and the applicant must swear an oath of fealty to the heretical Modernist Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965). Such Messes are prohibited from being advertised. Scripture readings are prohibited from being proclaimed or sung in Latin, but must be rendered in the defective, Modernist "translation" approved by the U.S. Newbishops, viz., the error-filled New American Bible. The venerable traditional Douay-Rheims version is prohibited.
The New Latin Mess is prohibited from being simulated in a parish church, unless the Newcardinal and the Newvatican both permit it. Newvatican has already indicated that such permission, for a special occasion only, would hardly ever be granted. The New Latin Mess is prohibited from being simulated on Christmas, Holy Week, Easter, and Pentecost, as well as the first Sunday of each month, The new policy also prohibits the celebration of the New Latin Mess on the first Sunday of every month. All Newlatin Messes must be simulated with the presbyter facing the congregation, as a New Order Mess.
The 1962 Sacraments, including Baptism, Penance, Holy Eucharist, Confirmation, Holy Orders, Matrimony, and Extreme Unction, are prohibited. In those rare instances when a presbyter (Newchurch has not ordained priests since its 1968 adoption of the Protestantized Ordinal) is given only limited and temporarily approval for a New Latin Mess or two, that presbyter will have to persuade the congregation to drop the Half New Order New Latin Mess and adopt the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Mess of 1969 in the future.

Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergogliio's next slipper is expected to be dropped in February 2022, when the former "indult" societies, like the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), the Institute of Christ the King (ICR), the Institute of the Good Shepherd (IBP), and the other smaller ones, will be drastically curtailed and likely shut out of Newparishes entirely. Remember that even the Half New Order Vatican II "Extraordinary" Mess of 1962 is not the Traditional Latin Mass, but a sacrilegious, even heretical, corruption of it by Hannibal Bugnini's "Modernization" Commission from 1951. This is the perfect opportunity once and for all for the few remaining Neocon Newchurchers to get out of the apostate Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church.
Again, the Newvatican Christmas party, this year held on December 23, 2021, went sour, as Bergoglio lost it in a vicious, angry tirade of almost an hour against Newcurial clergy and lay employees for clinging to Tradition. The Marxist, apostate Newpope is becoming angrier and more demented as the years go by. Some are seeing in his outrageous behavior the signs of increasing dementia. Bergoglio turned 85 on December 17, 2021.
If the clueless Newchurch Neocons who embrace the phony Half New Order Vatican II "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962 are hoping for a light in the tunnel, it just went out. Bergoglio condemned such Newchurchers for their "attachment to superficial reassurances" and a "spiritual worldliness," including the New Latin Mess, telling them that they had succumbed to the "devil's potions." Just five days earlier, Bergoglio had forbidden the use of the New Latin Mess and former sacraments, except under the most rare and stringent conditions.
Bergoglio told the Newcuria that the solution to its sins is to embrace his notion of "synodality," by which any doctrine, "liturgy," or "sacrament" in Newchurch can be abolished or changed by a voting synod. Such a notion is outright heresy, as the True Church must be based upon Sacred Scripture and Sacrament Tradition, which no pope has the power to change, as they come from Christ. That is Catholic dogma, promulgated by Pope Pius IX after the First Vatican Council of 1870.
Traditional Catholics, there was never to be any quarter for the Half New Order New Latin Mess of 1962 in the Newchurch of the New Order. The Neocon Newchurchers who deluded themselves on this reality since the Vatican II Anti-council are now reaping the bitter fruit of their delusion and their perfidy to the Catholic Faith. Knowing full well that as a Marxist and an apostate, Bergoglio hates true Catholicism, the deluded Neocons continue to bend the knee to this man who seems content to do Satan's work. The pusillanimous Neocons deserve what they are now getting for abandoning the Traditional Latin Mass and Sacraments after the abominations and corruptions beginning in the 1950s.
One thing about the Newchurch of the New Order is that no doctrine is ever settled. Newchurch has changed, or essentially changed, Catholic doctrine on bigamy (divorce and remarriage), homosexuality, abortion, contraception, atheism, and Hell, inter alia.. Now Newchurch is considering the rejection of Pope Leo XIII's landmark 1896 Apostolic Bull, "Apostolicae Curae," declaring Protestant Anglican/Episcopalian orders "absolutely null and utterly void" because of lack of valid form (text) and intention (to create true priests) in the sacrament. This papal declaration of nullity (invalidity) affects both Anglican/Episcopalian "priests" and "bishops." The Anglican sect in England and elsewhere is termed the Episcopalian sect in the United States.
According to Catholic doctrine there are three essential conditions required for the valid conferral of a Sacrament: proper matter, proper form, and proper intention. If any of these conditions is not met, the conferral is null and void, invalid, fake. Pope Leo declared that the form (text) of the Anglican/Episcopalian "ordinations" was so altered in the Anglican Ordinal as to invalidate the rite. In the Anglican form there is no reference to the priestly power of offering sacrifice, which is essential in the ordination of priests and of bishops, and thus the intention of the ordination is invalid as well.. >
Similar defects causing invalidity exist in the Protestantized rite adopted by Newchurch in 1968, which no longer "ordains" priests to offer "the sacrifice of the Mass for the living and the dead," but merely "installs" [not ordains] presbyters [like Protestant ministers] "to preside over the assembly of the people." That is why since 1968 Newchurch has had no valid priests, no valid Mass, and no valid sacraments (except, in some cases baptism and matrimony, which do not essentially require a priest). Thus, Newchurch is no more Catholic than the Protestant sects.
On December 15, 2021, an influential group of Newchurch and Anglican/Episcopalian "theologians" called for Pope Leo's doctrinal declaration to be "overturned." Such a move would be further proof that Newchurch lacks the Four Marks of the True Church: "one, holy, catholic, and apostolic." The group issued its call from Francis-Bergoglio's own Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas at Newrome. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Reporter.]
Traditional Catholics, the apostate Newpopes have already given their implicit blessing to this anti-Catholic reversal of doctrine. Paul VI-Montini gave his episcopal ring to the heretic Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury in 1966, and JPII-Wojtyla gave his Newpapal stole to an Anglican priest in 1982. Newpopes over the years have given their episcopal pectoral crosses to heretic Anglican "bishops." It bears repeating: "Since 1968 Newchurch has had no valid priests, no valid Mass, and no valid sacraments (except, in some cases baptism and matrimony, which do not essentially require a priest). Thus, Newchurch is no more Catholic than the Protestant sects."
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
My aunt is German, and I would like to send her the Memorare prayer in German, I have tried to find a German translation, without luck so far. If you have the Memorare in German, would you be kind enough to send it to me?
THE TRADITIO FATHERS REPLY.
Sorry, but we do have the original Latin version of this beautiful prayer to the Blessed Virgin. Many of the Saints of the Church recommended that laypeople pray the common devotional prayers in Latin. Undoubtedly, your aunt knows the essential meaning of the prayer in her own vernacular.

Blaspheming the Blessed Virgin Mary on the feast of her Immaculate Conception, Francis-Bergoglio has initiated a campaign to destroy the world's greatest traditional Catholic church building. You have already read in these Daily Commentaries how the great Gothic Notre Dame cathedral in Paris, built in the twelfth century, is being turned into a Disneyland for non-believers. Now, by Bergoglio's decree, the same barbarism will be perpetrated upon St. Peter's Archbasilica in Newrome.
Already Francis-Bergoglio installed, right in front of the once-high altar, the nude pagan fertility goddess Pachamama. Now he is using his 2020 Encyclical Letter, Fratelli tutti, derisively termed "Tutti-frutti," on "fraternity and social friendship," as the platform for the destruction of great traditional Catholic churches around the world, including St. Peter's itself.
On December 8, 2021, Bergoglio launched a new autonomous “Fratelli tutti Foundation,” to be headquartered at St. Peter’s Archbasilica in Newrome. In his founding document he gives to Newcardinal Mauro Gambetti a "free hand for the cultural and spiritual animation of the church itself and St. Peter’s Square, within the 'embrace' of the colonnade of Bernini." In other words, Bergoglio will be making a Disneyland out of St. Peter's. Labyrinths, lightshows, animations on big screens, discovery trails, trash art, "events" (like circuses and clown acts so beloved of the Newpopes), and other abominations to the dignity of the great basilica are planned -- not for real Catholics, few of whom ever go to the basilica any more -- but for pagan visitors. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]
Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's planned wreckovation of St. Peter's are explicitly based on his secular political "encyclicals," which speak not of Our Lord, Our Lady, the Holy Angels, and the Saints, but of non-religious, secular obsessions like "global warming" and "illegal alien invasions," with a good dollop of "fraternity, dialogue, and synodality." The implemention of the new St. Peter's will begin in 2022. It seems that St. Peter's will get the jump on Notre Dame in surrendering to the barbarians.
On December 3, 2018, the Newarchdiocese of Santa Fe, New Mexico had declared bankruptcy because of its sex crimes against children. Three years later, it can't raise enough money to meet its financial obligations to the more than 400 child victims whom its presbyters raped, sodomized, and otherwise sexually assaulted. Property sales, donations, and insurance have fallen far short of the required settlement payments. One possible outcome is that the Newarchdiocese may be dissolved, and its assets sold off to secular interests.
Santa Fe is just one of 27 Newdioceses and three Newreligious orders in the United States that have declared bankruptcy because of their sex crimes against children. That is almost one out of every ten Newdioceses in the United States. Some have been able to emerge from bankruptcy hobbled and decimated, but others have not. And the crimes nevertheless continue under Newchurch's Third Paedophile Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio.
If the Newarchdiocese can't come up with the settlement payments to the children for its crimes, the victims could drive the Newarchdiocese into complete dissolution to pay off its criminal obligations to the child victims. It has already auctioned off some of its properties, and a second auction is scheduled. The 1,400,000 USD raised in the first auction is a mere drop in the bucket against the Newarchdiocese's total criminal obligations. A similar case saw a payment of 800,000,000 USD Three years is a long time for a case to remain in bankruptcy court without a settlement. A Santa Fe legal authority admitted: "The finish line isn't in sight." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Santa Fe New Mexican.]
Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's Newarchiocese of Santa Fe has learned nothing since Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust came to public light in 2002. It has been trying to hide its property and cash in its 93 Newparishes to obstruct justice to the child victims. The U.S. Bankruptcy Judge fired one of the mediators and vitiated the Newarchdiocese's fraud. At this point the victims' attorneys stated: "All diocesan assets are on the table.... If it [a settlement] blows up, it blows up." That may mean that the Newchurch archdiocese may be vaporized by the court -- as it should be for the criminal organization that it is, together with all the other criminal Newchurch dioceses, in the United States and worldwide.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I wonder what is to be the result of Francis-Bergoglio's banning of the Half New Order "Extraordinary"New Latin Mess on the former "indult" organizations such as the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP). Can they not continue to say the 1962 Mass if they want to?
And what about the independent Traditional Catholic organizations like the Society of St. Pius V (SSPV)? Can they just ignore Bergoglio's threats?
THE TRADITIO FATHERS REPLY.
There are already reports that the former "indult" groups known as the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), the Institute of Christ the King (ICR), the Institute of the Good Shepherd (IBP), and a few other small ones, will be gutted in February 2022, after the Inquisitors whom Francis-Bergoglio has dispatched complete their work.
The independent Traditional Catholic Society of St. Pius V (SSPV) and the Congregation of Mary Immaculate Queen (CMRI), as well as the numerous independent Traditional Catholic priests at churches, chapels, and oratories around the world have nothing to do with the Newchurch of the New Order -- which is certainly not the Catholic Church. So, as the remnant of the Catholic Church, they will continue offering the true and valid Traditional Latin Mass and Traditional Latin Sacraments, just as they have been since the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965). Thank God, they do not answer to the apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio or his Newpope predecessors.
About Fellay's Neo-SSPX, who knows? Fellay & Co. have said virtually nothing about Bergoglio's decrees suppressing the New Latin Mess, so it can be assumed that they still want to join the Newchurch of the New Order. The FSSP, ICR, IBP, and other Newchurch "indult" organizations could refuse Bergoglio, but they won't. For too many years they have bent the knee to the Newchurch of the New Order, and they have made themselves the eunuchs of its ever-variable Newpopes.
Those who left Newchurch starting in 1962 after the Vatican II Anti-council to the present day have certainly turned out to be the heroes of this story. God be praised for inspiring so many Traditional Catholics who rejected the false Newchurch and its false Newpopes. The truth that was not so clear to many in the 1960s is absolutely undeniable in the 2000s.
Foremost among these was the venerable Fr. Gommar DePauw, who started the Catholic Traditionalist Movement 1964, and the many Traditional Catholic priests and laymen that followed in his footsteps. Almost a decade later Archbishop Lefebvre started his movement and declared the "Conciliar Church" not to be the Catholic Church.
The demise of the New Latin Mass of 1962 -- which is most certainly not the Traditional Latin Mass -- is not to be lamented, but embraced by true Catholics. Too long has Newchurch deceived the Neocon Newchurchers with this Half New Order Vatican II "Extraordinary" Mess of 1962, forged from the workshop of arch liturgical heretic Hannibal Bugnini, and simulated by the non-priests of Newchurch, who since 1968 have been merely "installed" as presbyter-ministers under a Protestantized New Ordinal, not ordained as priests in the Sacrament of Holy Orders. The Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968 does not give them the power "to offer the Sacrifice of the Mass for the living and the dead" and "to forgive sins," as Traditional Catholic priests outside of Newchurch are given, because they are still ordained in the traditional Sacrament of Holy Orders.
As we TRADITIO Fathers had recently predicted correctly in these Daily Commentaries, Francis-Bergoglio's next slipper was about to fall hard against the Half New Order "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962. And so it did, on December 18, 2021, in the form of responses to questions issued by the Newprefect of the Congregation for [New Order] Divine Worship, Arthur Roche, personally approved by Bergoglio.
Roche's instruction starts with the usual sycophancy to the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), which replaced the Catholic Church as the "institutional Church" with the Newchurch of the New Order ("Lumen gentium" of 1964), teaching the Oecumenical Heresy: "we all worship the same gods" and "all religions are true." Roche proceeds to quote Newpope Paul VI-Montini as stating that the destruction of the Immemorial Sacred Liturgy had "rich results." What he did not quote was Montini's startling admission just nine years later that because of the New Mess, the New Office, and the New Sacraments, "the smoke of Satan (fumus Satanae) has entered the temple of God."
The instructions to Bergoglio's July 16, 2021, decree "Traditionis custodes," whose purpose was to suppress the "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess, are far more severe than expected. Here are the highlights:
The following provisions seem directed particularly at the former "indult" societies, like the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), the Institute of Christ the King (ICR), and the Institute of the Good Shepherd (IBP).
The Bergoglio-Roche instruction is far more dictatorial than the pseudo-traditionalists in Newchurch expected. Its purpose is to take "Traditionis custodes" to the next level, which is the impending ban of the New Latin Mass even in the "indult" societies, like the Fraternity of St. Peter. This step has been reported for February 2022, after the Bergoglian inquisitions of the "indult" societies have been completed..
Traditional Catholics, none of this is unexpected. We TRADITIO Fathers predicted it already years ago. But remember that even the Half New Order Vatican II "Extraordinary" Mess of 1962 is not the Traditional Latin Mass, but a sacrilegious, even heretical, corruption of it by Hannibal Bugnini's "Modernization" Commission from 1951. If you have already gotten out of Newchurch and found an independent Traditional Latin Mass, Divine Office, and Sacraments offered by a Traditional Catholic priest, you did the right thing. If you haven't yet, the time is long past for you to get out of the fabricated Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church. To remain in Newchurch is to be tantamount to a follower of the arch-heretic Luther -- or much worse.
The Communist Unsaint Newarchbishop, Oscar Romero (1917-1980), whom Francis-Bergoglio con-anized (Newchurch does not have valid canonizations) in 2018 may soon have company, if Bergoglio has his way. He is now pushing the Communist Dorothy Day (1897-1980) to join the innumerable brood of Newchurch Unsaints. On December 11, 2021, the first batch of "proof" for Day's "sanctity" was sent off to Newrome.
Day has impeccable credentials as a Communist. She was Managing Editor of the Communist Catholic Worker newspaper. She was a supporter of Fidel Castro, the murderous Communist dictator of "that imprisoned island" of Cuba, as U.S. President J.F. Kennedy called it. Day stated plainly in 1961: "We are on the side of the [Communist] revolution." Day was in addition a proponent of the fabricated Leftist construct called "social justice."
Traditional Catholics, Day was in addition a radical feminist and -- oh yes -- had an abortion. All in all, a perfect candidate for Newchurch Unsaint! Bergoglio has been churning them out like there's no tomorrow. Who knows but that Bergoglio's favorite heretic, Martin Luther, will be proposed again for Unsainthood?
On December 5, 2021, the Newarchdiocese of Cincinnati, Ohio, announced that it is essentially forgoing Newparishes for new "family" constructs. This move reflects how Francis-Bergoglio has indicated that he will reorganize Newchurch locally at his 2023 General Synod to Remake Newchurch.
The number of "families" will be greatly reduced, as the Cincinnati Newchurch has been losing three Newchurch households every day for ten years. The currently more than 200 Newparishes will be reduced by 70 per cent to 53 "families" by July 1, 2022. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
Traditional Catholics, attendance at the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Mess of 1969 has fallen by two-thirds, and in five years one out of five presbyters will be gone. In addition to many Newchurchers now being tired of the fake (invalid) New Mess, Newchurch has not ordained priests in Holy Orders since 1968, merely "installed presbyters" like Protestant ministers, under a Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968 to merely to "preside over the assembly of the people" with no sacramental power. No wonder virtually no man wants to become a Protestant "presbyter" in Newchurch!
The local fear in Hollywood, California, these days is that Newchurch is going to sell the Monastery of the Holy Angeles out from under the Novus Ordo Dominican contemplative "nuns" that have owned and operated it for 97 years. The monastery sits just beneath the "H" in the famous Hollywood sign. The monastery has remained faithfully cloistered, the nuns praying from behind a grille adjoining the chapel and not leaving the property except for medical matters.
The 16,000-square-meter property, worth now some 3,000,000 USD, is just too enticing for Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch, which is sinking financially into bankruptcy because of rampant paedophile crimes and embezzlement. Moreover, Bergoglio hates contemplatives: they aren't secular enough for his Marxist sensibilities.
On December 16, 2021, the community met with canon lawyers and received the bad news that Bergoglio as the Unholy Father of Newchurch can do pretty much whatever he wants. In fact, it is only he who can write Newchurch's canon law (which is not the traditional Catholic canon law) and change it on a whim, with no one to answer to -- except Jesus Christ, Who has the power to consign him to Hell for his misdeeds and apostasy from the Catholic Faith. The property is slated to go up for sale in 2022. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Los Angeles Times.]
Traditional Catholics, the nuns have posted notice that the monastery runs the risk of becoming “a condominium or a mall or worse." Under the regimes of paedophile Newpopes JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio, the monastery has been run to the ground and has become so undesirable under Novus Ordo management that only five nuns remain after the last two decades of Newchurch mismanagement. Who wants to be a "nun" in Newchurch, which doesn't have a Mass or a priesthood, just a New Order parody devoid of divine grace?
Three times a year the blood of the early early Catholic martyr, St. Januarius (ob. 305), 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 in 1631. When 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 rarely failed to liquefy. When it does, war, famine, disease, or other disasters have occurred. 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 reached. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
Traditional Catholics, now for the third time under Francis-Bergoglio the Holy Martyr's blood failed to liquefy on December 16, 2021. The Newchurch presbyter in charge at the cathedral was at a loss. "The actual state, as you can see well, is absolutely solid. It does not give any sign [of liquefying], not even a single drop," he said. This failure three times under the same purported pope has never occurred before. One can only wonder what disaster almighty God may be signaling now for the Unholy Father and his apostate Newchurch.
As previously reported in these Daily Commentaries, the apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio's regime banned on October 7, 2021, the use of the "Extraordinary" Half New Order New Latin Sacraments of 1962 in Newrome. Now reports from Newrome indicate that the ban will be extended to all of the Newchurch of the New Order in a pre-announced new Instruction by the end of 2021. In 2007, Benedict-Ratzinger decreed for the first time officially that the invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Order Mess of 1969 is the "Ordinary" Mess of Newchurch.
Thus, Sacraments of Baptism, Penance, Confirmation, Holy Orders, Matrimony, and Extreme Unction in the Half New Order "Extraordinary" New Latin 1962 form are forbidden. The use of any pre-1969 version of the Rituale Romanum, the book that contains the form of the Sacraments, is banned. The use of the Half New Order "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962 is substantively banned, and the use of the 1962 Holy Week is specifically banned without exception.
All of this is, of course, a tempest in a teapot. Since 1968-1972 Newchurch hasn't had any sacraments anyway. Newchurch changed to invalidity the five sacraments of Penance, Holy Eucharist, Confirmation, Holy Orders, and Extreme Unction. In 1968, Newchurch ceased ordaining priests in Holy Orders when it adopted the Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968. Now it merely "installs" presbyters (a fancy name for what the Protestants call "ministers") "to preside over the assembly of the people." They have no sacramental power whatsoever. Thus, Newchurch has no valid sacraments and no priests. Only what it now calls "The Rite of Initiation" (formerly Baptism) may be valid in some cases, and perhaps Matrimony (which doesn't essentially require a priest). [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
Traditional Catholics, we fail to see why the Neocon Newchurchers are so surprised about all of this heresy from Newchurch. Where have they been during the last sixty years, from which time the handwriting on the wall was evident. What happened to Baltasar, the king of Babylon, in the fall of his regime in one day after the famous "handwriting on the wall" (Daniel 5) is taking just a little longer in Newchurch, but the same outcome is beyond doubt.
Fortunately there are numerous churches, chapels, and oratories all around the world that reject the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order, currently led by the apostate Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio -- which is most certainly not the Catholic Church. For North America, these are conveniently listed in the Official Traditional Catholic Directory, Listing All Traditional Latin Masses and Traditional Resources for North America, published since 1992. For further information, click on the TRADITIO Network's Official Traditional Catholic Directory department, provided to the TRADITIO Network by the National Registry of Traditional Latin Masses.
On December 3, 2021, it was reported that at least 820 sex crimes against children by Newchurch have hit the New Jersey courts, 180 in November 2021 alone. Almost one-third of the crimes were perpetrated by presbyters (Newchurch has not ordained priests since adoption of the Protestantized Ordinal in 1968). The rest were perpetrated by "nuns" and Newchurch laity. In Newchurch, everyone is involved as either a criminal or a supporter of criminals.
The once-venerable Benedictine Order has now been corrupted by Newchurch into a paedophile organization. It was the most sued Newchurch religious order. The Christian Brothers came in second, and the Salesians, third. Charges were filed against the notorious paedophile Newcardinal intimate of and fund-raiser for the current Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio, Theodore McCarrick. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
Traditional Catholics, Newchurch stinks from the head. The worst case charges Newarchbishop Peter Gerety, of Newark, of sexually assaulting a five-year-old girl over a period of five years until she was ten, right in his own Newcathedral. The leaders of Newchurch, including the three paedophile Newpopes, JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio, are, to use St. Paul's term, "vile, reprobate, hateful to God and worthy of death" (Romans 1) for "consenting to them" that do such vile things (Romans 1:32/DRV). By this point, with Newchurch's corruption being so widely known, every Newchurcher that attends a Novus Ordo temple or puts a penny into its collection plate must consider himself a moral accomplice to the worst evils as well.
Those clueless Neocon Newchurchers who are all exercised about "Traditionis custodes" are just shoveling sand against the tide. The Big Behemoth is Francis-Bergoglio's General Synod slated for 2023, in which he plans for his Newchurch to reject Scripture and Tradition, and become a tool for a secularist One World Government. There is nothing Catholic left in Newchurch now, but after 2023 it will be clear that Newchurch is beyond pagan.
On December 13, 2021, Bergoglio's General Secretariat of the Synod restored a link on its web site to a sodomite group's video, having removed it on December 7 after a complaint by the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops against the group, New Ways Ministry. Bergoglio's Newvatican "apologized" for its originally correct action in removing the link to the sodomite organization in the first place. The video encourages sodomites to influence Bergoglio's General Synod to Remake Newchurch. Bergoglio himself is famous for having said, "Who am I to judge?," relating to sodomy, one of the Four Biblical Sins that Cry to Heaven for Retribution. Essentially, Bergoglio has declared himself not to be a pope. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the ABC News.]
Traditional Catholics, the Newchurch of the New Order is so corrupt that it can't get even its own act straight. In 1999, under Newpope JPII-Wojtyla, New Ways Ministry was censured by the Newvatican Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith as preaching heresy. Now Francis-Bergoglio's Newchurch welcomes sodomites. Newchurch is sinking faster and faster into apostasy and paganism, as its membership declines into single digits. Any Newchurchers remaining in it now must are completely demented.
Francis-Bergoglio is continuing his vendetta against contemplative religious orders in his Newchurch. On December 3, 2021, he booted a group of cloistered Newdominican "nuns" from their Monastery of the Angels in Hollywood, California. He is in the process of shutting down communities of Newcarmelite nuns and has already shut down a community of Newfranciscan monks.
The Dominican nuns' monastery goes back nearly one hundred years and has been located under the “H” of the famous Hollywood sign. The now-Newchurch nuns' don't meet Bergoglio's new criteria under his gutted Novus Ordo "canon law." In twenty years under Benedict-Ratzinger and Francis-Bergoglio, the number of Newchurch nuns has fallen by 90 per cent. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Los Angeles Times.]
Traditional Catholics, not only does Francis-Bergoglio hate contemplative orders, but he seems to have his eye on the nuns' property assessed at 2,700,000 USD. Bergoglio's Newvatican, according to its Auditor General is close to bankruptcy because of sex-crime payoffs and embezzlement of charitable funds by Bergoglio and his henchmen. Thus, Bergoglio needs to pilfer money from any source possible.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I would like to know your opinion on the proper role of the Catholic laity in the current state of Traditional Catholicism. Should laypeople be preaching and hectoring? Should self-appointed laypeople attempting to put themselves in the position of teachers, even of traditional priests?
What I have in mind are those Neocon Newchurchers who call themselves "traditional," but are really not, who devote themselves to "social action," lecturing fellow Newchurchers on current political matters, among other things. Shouldn't true Catholics receive their instruction and guidance primarily from traditional Catholic priests?
THE TRADITIO FATHERS REPLY
We think that your approach is correct. Whenever possible, get advice and instruction from your traditional Catholic priest rather than -- particularly these days -- often religiously-uneducated laypeople who go off halfcocked. You are obviously aware of the type.
We find that it usually it is the Newchurch laypeople that fit your description, not Traditional Catholics. Often the Neocon Newchurchers, who are of course not Catholic, just want to pander books and articles, or make themselves look falsely authoritative.
First, the Newchurch of the New Order lied to the world. Now, the French government has lied to the world. Both promised that the fire-ravaged historic Notre Dame de Paris Cathedral would be restored to its original condition before the fire. But, as previously reported in these Daily Commentaries, both have reneged on their promise to the world to restore the twelfth-century (traditional) Catholic cathedral intact.
During a secret, closed-door meeting, the 24 members of France's National Heritage and Architecture Commission colluded with corrupt Newchurch officials to approve Newchurch's plans to wreckovate the interior of the cathedral, even after more than one hundred of France's leaders in the arts and academia denounced Newchurch's plan as barbaric. The Newchurch plan includes the removal of all (traditional) Saints' statues in the cathedral. Newchurch's wreckovation of the historic cathedral has been widely condemned as a "politically correct Disneyland.... It’s a kind of theme park and very childish and trivial, given the grandeur of the place."
The 100 French arts leaders really hit the Newchurch lie on the head:
The [New]archdiocese of Paris wants to take advantage of the restoration work to transform the interior of Notre-Dame into a project that completely distorts the decor and liturgical space. It believes that the destruction caused by the fire is an opportunity to transform the visitor’s perception of the monument, even though the fire was limited to the roof and the spire and did not destroy any of the heritage inside.... [The] silliness [of the project] vies with kitch.
Meanwhile, the Newchurch archbishop in charge of the wreckovation, Michel Aupetit, has abdicated on December 2, 2021, because he publicly "lost his reputation" in an incident reported in several French press sources that he had sexually assaulted his secretary. Newpope Francis-Bergoglio said that he only reluctantly accepted his Newarchbishop's abdication, calling Aupetit's criminal assault "not a serious sin." Bergoglio has regularly colluded in the sex crimes of his henchmen, attempting to excuse them in every way possible. Thus it is that Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust continues unabated under Bergoglio. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
Traditional Catholics, it can only be hoped that France’s Culture Minister will veto the project. Roselyne Bachelot has previously stated that the restored cathedral should look "identical" to its form before the fire. Of course, Francis-Bergoglio, a barbarian Marxist and apostate from the Catholic Faith, has played deaf and dumb. He want to saves trees, but not the grand traditional cathedral.
Evangelical heretic preacher Joel Osteen, who has essentially no religious training, but took over his father's lucrative megachurch near Houston, Texas, was caught on November 10, 2021, with a stash of money and checks from his congregation's contributions hidden behind a wall of his Lakewood church. A plumber was fixing a toilet in the church, and when he removed some tile, he discovered the stash.
Osteen refused to comment about the embarrassing discovery. He runs a lucrative empire of CDs, books, and other media that hawk his crazy "prosperity gospel" Evangelicalism at a profit. He doesn't even use a Bible, as most other Evangelicals do. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Washington Examiner.]
Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio very publicly invited Osteen to lunch in the Santa Marta five-star cafeteria in Newvatican City on the same day that Bergoglio openly snubbed and refused to speak to Bernie Fellay, the leader of the Newchurch-leaning Neo-SSPX. It is clear where Bergoglio's sympathies lie: in heresy and apostasy.
Just as we TRADITIO Fathers had predicted, Francis-Bergoglio's next step in the suppression of the "Extraordinary" Half New Order New Latin Mess of 1962 is an Inquisition reportedly to begin by the end of 2021 against the former "indult" societies that celebrate that Mess. Bergoglio has already used the methods of the Inquisition to shut down traditional-leaning Newchurch organizations among the Franciscans and Carmelites. In fact, the "indult" societies do not even have priests, but unordained New Order presbyters who have no sacramental power.to celebrate any valid Mass.
The :former "indult" societies that are in Bergoglio's crosshairs are the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), the Institute of Christ the King (ICR), and the Institute of the Good Shepherd (IBP), the largest three such organizations. Reportedly, these organizations will be forced to simulate the fake (invalid) Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Order service of 1969, declared by Benedict-Ratzinger in 2007 to be the "Ordinary" service of Newchurch, or dissolve. These organizations would be required to swear a loyalty oath to the Vatican II Anti-council and its fabrication of the Newchurch of the New Order, which the Anti-council founded in 1964. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]
Traditional Catholics, all of this was predictable, and we TRADITIO Fathers predicted it even before one of the lead architects of the Modernist Vatican II Anti-council, Josef Ratzinger (aka later as Benedict XVI), tried to pull the wool over the eyes of the clueless Neocon Newchurchers by leading them to the slaughter with his 2007 Motu Proprio "Summorum pontificum." After some Neocons were then outed by organizing "Extraordinary" Half New Order New Latin Messes of 1962, Benedict-Ratzinger deviously lead them over the cliff so that Francis-Bergoglio could then easily decapitate them. The Modernist Ratzinger and the apostate Bergoglio worked perfectly in tandem to destroy the Neocons' fantasy of the purely-concocted "Extraordinary" Mess. The Neocons should have dumped Newchurch long ago, recognizing it for the clearly fake anti-Catholic sect that it is.
On November 17, 2021, at 19:00 UT, Traditional Catholicism lost a strong promoter when Fr. Patrick Perez was taken from this earth by complications of the Red China Virus, from which he was unvaccinated. After three days of infection, he was moved to hospital, where he lingered for ten days before his death and where he received the traditional Last Rites. A Requiem Mass for the repose of his soul was sung on November 22, 2021, by Fr. Paul Sretenovich, of St. Joan of Arc Mission in Riverside, California.
Fr. Perez began his association with the Institutum Christi Regis Summi Sacerdotis (ICRSS), a Newchurch "indult" organization like the Fraternitas Sacerdotalis Sancti Petri (FSSP), but as Fr. Perez became more and more aware that "indult" organizations were a sellout to the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order, he left the Institute and went independent, celebrating not the "Extraordinary" Half New Order Mess of 1962, but the fully Traditional Latin Mass of 1950. Fr. Perez served for many years with Fr. Frederick Schell, who founded Our Lady Help of Christians in Garden Grove, in Southern California. Upon Fr. Schell's death he became pastor of the church.
Fr. Perez was known as an expert in the calendrical rubrics of the fully Traditional Roman Rite (1950) and produced an annual Ordo. On occasion he consulted the TRADITIO Fathers on particularly complex rubrical questions. In addition, Fr. Perez was also known as an expert in the rubrics of celebrating Holy Mass and conducted a seminar for Traditional Catholic priests on the fully Traditional Roman Rite rubrics, which was recorded and distributed by MAETA Publishers.

On December 4, 2021, just as Francis-Bergoglio, on yet another of his apostolic junkets, this time to Greece, chastised his Newpope predecessors for not selling out to the Oecumenical Heresy and showed himself eager to go down that evil path, one of the very Greek Orthodox schismatics with whom he wanted to oecumenize, screamed at him: "Pope, you are a heretic." The Greek Orthodox priest was publicly confronting Bergoglio in Athens.
The priest screamed at Bergoglio loudly enough that the Newpope was able to hear. This was the miserable first day of Bergoglio's three-day junket. The incident was a great embarrassment for both Bergoglio and Greek Orthodox archbishop Ieronimos, to whom he was attempting to sell out. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Reuters Press Service.]
Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio on the occasion issued a highly-skewed, one-sided "apology" for the Great Schism of 1054. JPII-Wojtla had perpetrated the same sellout. The Eastern Orthodox, for their part, have yet to apologize. Whereas the pusillanimous Newpopes are eager to sell out in the name of the Oecumenical Heresy, fabricated by the Vatican II-Anticouncil (1962-1965), the Easterners have more guts and stand solid in their position, wrong as it may be. Today the Eastern Orthodox still retain a good deal of the Catholic and Apostolic Church, whereas the Newchurch of the New Order in the West has completely fallen into apostasy from the Catholic Faith.
In Newchurch the unconsecrated bishops and Newcardinals are just as perverted as the presbyters. Newchurch stopped consecrating bishops in 1968, when it adopted a Protestantized New Ordinal which merely "installs" Newbishops without the sacraments and without grace. Since these unconsecrated persons have no sacramental grace, it is no wonder that they fall into the most grievous of sins, including blasphemy, idolatry, sacrilege, and apostasy.
On August 23, 2021, Newbishop Xavier Novell, of Solsona, Spain, abdicated, and on November 29, married in a virtually-secret civil ceremony a Satanist divorcee who already had two little warlocks. The Spanish media subsequently reported that the Satanist woman is again pregnant (by the Newbishop?) with twin warlocks. The woman is known for writing Satanic-based pornography. From a Catholic perspective, the civil marriage is null and void, as it violated the Newbishop's celibacy, and the Newbishop is thereby automatically excommunicated. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
Traditional Catholics, what is remarkable in this case is not the gross immorality involved on the part of a Newbishop -- all of them are in an objective state of apostasy from the true Catholic Church -- but the statement of the Newcardinal of Barcelona, Jose Omella, who refused to "enter into judgment and condemnation. In that statement is exposed the gangrene that is rotting the fake Newchurch of the New Order to its essential demise within the decade, as the latest statistics show.
On December 3, 2021, Newchurch presbyter Geoff Drew pled guilty to nine counts of sodomizing an "altar boy" in Cincinnati and Dayton, Ohio. The boy was only 10-11 years old.
The crimes took place in Drew’s office while he was Novus Ordo "director of music and liturgy." Subsequently, Newchurch "installed" him as a presbyter (Newchurch has not ordained priests since adopting the Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968). Drew has been cooling his heels since 2019 in county jail. He was lucky to get off with only seven years in the penitentiary in a plea bargain for pleading guilty and saving the citizenry the cost of a trial. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
Traditional Catholics, presbyter Drew prepared for the sodomies by committing what the Newarchdiocese of Cincinnati euphemistically termed "boundary violations." So, according to the immoral Newarchdiocese, repeated sodomy of a pre-adolescent child is merely a aggravated "boundary violation." No wonder Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust continues unabated under the Third Paedophile Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio.
It should be no surprise that Traditional Catholic producer-director-actor should be targeted by the radical "woke" left. Gibson is an Academy-Award winner for the 1995 historical saga "Braveheart," about the twelfth-century Scottish freedom fighter William Wallace against the corrupt King Edward I of England. Gibson followed that film with "The Patriot," another historical saga about a South Carolina farmer who helps defeat King George III of England in the American Revolutionary War.
Then came Gibson's 2004 blockbuster, "The Passion of the Christ," a graphic drama of the passion and death by crucifixion of Jesus Christ from a traditional Catholic perspective. Although Newchurch reaction was mixed, conservative Protestants and Evangelicals loved it, hiring busses to convey their entire congregations and selling out whole theaters to view it. Its popularity continues to this day with repeat screenings in theaters and on and television every Holy Week.
Radical Jews, like Abraham Foxman of the B'nai B'rith (Children of the Covenant), hated the film and tried to paint Gibson as an anti-Semite for producing "The Passion of the Christ," claiming the account of the life of Jesus Christ is intrinsically anti-Semitic. Malina shares Foxman's anti-Catholic views. Yet Maria Morgenstern, a Jewess whom Gibson cast to play the role of Mary, stated that Gibson had been more than generous in encouraging her to portray her role in any way that she thought was authentic.
On December 2, 2021, supporting actor Joshua Malina, who describes himself as a Spanish Jew, decided to call on Hollywood to "cancel" Gibson. "Cancelling" is the 2021 version of "blacklisting," in which by conspiracy actors not towing a politically-correct line are deprived of their livelihoods. Apparently jealous that Gibson is being offered roles that are denied Malina, who took a mere supporting role back in the 1990s television series, "West Wing," and little else of importance after thatn, Malina was exercised that Academy-Award winner Gibson has been asked to direct for Warner Bros. the fifth film in "Lethal Weapon," the highly-successful cop comedy-drama franchise, since the former director's death in July 2021. Gibson has also been tapped to star in the fourth film in the Starz/Lionsgate action-thriller franchise, "John Wick."
Malina decided to resurrect Foxman's political construct of "anti-Semitism" against the highly-successful producer-director-actor Gibson. Malina has already shown himself to nurture a radical "woke" racist mouth, calling those whose talents he envies "stupid cocks," "homophobic" [sic, for "homomisic"], "misogynistic," "transphobic," and, of course, "anti-Semitic." For Leftists, bigotry works only in one direction. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by The Atlantic.]
Traditional Catholics, it never seems to occur to Joshua Malina (and Abraham Foxman in 2004) that their vendetta against Gibson could be construed as outright anti-Catholic bigotry. The reality is that, in Hollywood, Malina is a mouse, and Gibson is a lion. Gibson doesn't even need Hollywood. He can produce his own films through his own production company, Icon Productions, which produced "The Passion of the Christ," the top-grossing independent film of all time, at over 612,000,000 USD.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Newrome must be shaking in its boots wondering whether the artists of the world will make an appeal to save the sanctuary of Notre Dame de Paris from Newchurch's planned barbaric destruction of the historic twelfth-century cathedral's interior. A similar appeal was previously made by artists, musicians, and writers to stop the New Mess of 1969 in England. That appeal succeeded, at least for some time.
The cultured of the world needn't be Catholic (certainly Newchurch isn't!), or even Christian. The violinist Yehudi Menuhin, the pianist Vladimir Ashkenazy, the conductor Colin Davis, the art historian Kenneth Clark (of "Civilization" fame), the author Robert Graves (of "I Claudius" fame), the actor Ralph Richardson, the opera diva Joan Sutherland, and the mystery writer Agatha Christie, together with many other cultural leaders signed the "PETITION BY DISTINGUISHED WRITERS, SCHOLARS, ARTISTS, AND HISTORIANS LIVING IN ENGLAND TO SPARE THE TRADITIONAL LATIN MASS."
Yet another similar worldwide pushback against Francis-Bergoglio and his Newchurch barbarians is required now because what the barbarian Newchurch leaders are planning in Paris is an act of vandalism, quite apart from the blasphemy involved. They are attempting to taking a razor blade to slash the Mona Lisa.

As Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust continues unabated under Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, a Louisville, Kentucky, presbyter is charged with robbing his own Newparish of a "substantial fortune." The presbyter, Anthony Ngo even "boasted about his wealth." He absconded with the Newparish's collections, converting them to his personal use, not the charitable purposes for which his Newparishioners had contributed the money. Francis-Bergoglio has been similarly involved in robbing funds donated to his fake charity, Peter's Pence, and converting the money to his own use.
On November 24, 2021, the case was entered in court by the Newparish's council members. Ngo has been close-mouthed about his robbery of his own Newparish. The Newchurch archdiocese of Louisville essentially ignored the robberies and allowed Ngo to continue in office. Ngo refused to turn over the Newparish's books for audit by the Newparish council. That corruption on the part of the Newarchdiocese and Ngo led to the Newparish's taking the presbyter to court to answer for his embezzlement. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Louisville Courier-Journal.]
Traditional Catholics, when Francis-Bergoglio himself has been caught red-handed embezzling from his fake charity, Peter's Pence, some half a billion USD in a failed London real-estate scam, it is no wonder that subordinate officials of his Newchurch, presbyters -- Newbishops, and Newcardinals -- have been emboldened to steal charitable funds from the clueless Newchurchers. It leads one to long once again for the Biblical days when thieves were crucified!
On November 26, 2021, Newchurch was caught in yet another Big Lie when its plans to destroy the original interior of Notre Dame Cathedral, gutted by fire in 2019, and replace it with Modernist kitsch were leaked. Newchurch had promised that the original interior, hailing back to the twelfth century, would be retained.
The traditional high altar is out.
The traditional confessional boxes are out.
The traditional classical sculptures are out.
"Modern art objects" will be substituted for the classical religious works.
Sound and light "effects" will be added.
European culture will be thrown out in favor of an African and Asian "ambiance."
"Environmentalism" will be thrust into the face of visitors, in line with Francis-Bergoglio's secular political agenda.
Newchurch's plans have been widely denounced as little more a trashy "politically-correct Disneyland," with no religion, let alone the Catholic religion. The gutted interior will deliberately pander to non-Christians and secularists. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
Traditional Catholics, at this rate, St. Peter's Archbasilica will soon be similarly trashed. Michaelangelo's "Pietà" will be replaced with the Satanic Twisted Serpent image so beloved of the Newpopes. Francis-Bergoglio has already installed the nude pagan fertility goddess Pachamama in front of the high altar. What else could be expected from Bergoglio's apostate regime, which hates anything traditional, let alone Catholic. He and his henchmen would not hesitate to destroy one of the greatest monuments of the Roman Catholic Faith.
On November 25, 2021, Francis-Bergoglio was forced to roll back his sweeping changes to the Novus Ordo Syro-Malabar Eastern Rite. Many traditional Catholics are unaware that after the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) the Eastern Rites were corrupted into service along with the Roman rite. Recently, Bergoglio had decreed a further corruption to take just three days later, on the First Sunday of Advent, November 28.
But Bergoglio didn't take into account the guts of his Easterners, who pushed back against the Newpope and wouldn't tolerate a further corruption of their already corrupted Novus Ordo Eastern rite. There was strong opposition from large segments of the Eastern clergy and laity. One controversy surrounded the presbyter facing toward the congregation (versus populum). [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
Traditional Catholics, the Easterners showed the Westerners what could have been done if they had stood against the Newpopes of the Newchurch of the New Order. Westerners in Newchurch seemed essentially to have rolled over. As a result, Westerners in Newchurch were subjected to the worst possible outcomes, the most recent being Francis-Bergoglio's July 19, 2021, decree, "Traditionis custodes," which is in the process of suppressing even the "Extraordinary" Half Novus Ordo New Latin Mess of 1962. The cowardly Newchurchers are only reaping the dead fruits of their cowardice in not standing up for the true Catholic Faith.
The Nebraska Attorney General on November 10, 2021, issued the results of a three year-investigation into Newchurch's sex crimes against children. Nebraska ranks 38th in population out of 50 states, yet the Attorney General documented 258 sex crimes perpetrated by 57 Newbishops, presbyters, Newdeacons, and Newparochial school teachers in just three Newdioceses.
The three Newbishops involved, George Lucas (Omaha), James Conley (Lincoln), and Joseph Hanefeldt (Grand Island), tried to brush off the investigation, implying that these were all sins of the past. Yet even a cursory reading of the newspapers or the internet indicate that Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust is continuing unabated under Francis-Bergoglio. Nor did the three Newbishops deny even a single element of the Attorney General's case. "Guilty as charged." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]
Traditional Catholics, the response of the Newbishops indicates why rampant sex crimes against children by Newchurch clergy will never stop until Newchurch dies a just death. Oh, yes, these Newbishops wring their hands and drip crocodile tears for propaganda purposes, but nothing ever changes. Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust continues under Francis-Bergoglio, who never fires or excommunicates from his Newchurch of the New Order a single one of his criminal accomplices, except on the rare occasion that his regime is threatened by his personal intransigence, as in the case of his notorious accomplice and fund-raiser, Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick. The statistical studies show that the death of Newchurch is coming closer and closer, probablywithin a decade or so before it is reduced to a virtually empty shell, like the Anglican or Lurtheran sects.
