Collections to Francis-Bergoglio's Scam Peter's Pence Charity Fund Have Plummeted since His 2014 Embezzlement
Of Some 500,000,000 USD from the Fund; Newvatican on the Brink of Bankruptcy

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Francis-Bergoglio Bankruptcy

Newvatican's Chief Auditor Has Announced
That Newchurch Is near Bankruptcy
"Second Collections" from Newchurchers
To Francis-Bergoglio's Scam Charity
Peter's Pence, Have Plummeted 56 per Cent
Since Bergoglio's Embezzlement of 500,000,000 USD
From the Fund to Shore up His Newvatican
Which Is Now Pushed to the Brink of Bankruptcy

Every year Newchurchers are strong-armed to contribute via a "second collection" on June 29 to a scam fund known as Peter's Pence, which goes directly to the Newpope. It is advertised as a charity to help the most needy around the world, such as earthquake and hurricane victims. Instead, it has been revealed that Francis-Bergoglio personally was behind the embezzlement of some 500,000,000 USD from the fund.

Bergoglio tried to finger a subordinate of his, Newcardinal Angelo Becciu, No. 2 in Newvatican's Department of State, but Becciu has presented evidence to both a Roman secular court and a Newchurch religious court that Bergoglio himself authorized the embezzlement of funds to support his toppling regime. The case is still ongoing in the Newvatican court, and the court has taken judicial notice of evidence that Bergoglio himself authorized the embezzlement. The trial has now been thrown into utter chaos, and charges have been dismissed against several of Bergoglio's scapegoat defendants.

In other words, Peter's Pence is a fraud. In fact, there is a lawsuit in the United States Federal Court to declare Bergoglio's U.S. Newbishops knowing accomplices in the fraud.

Now it seems that Bergoglio is paying for his own swindle, of which his own Newvatican courts will not convict him. Newvatican's Chief Auditor had previously announced that Newchurch is near bankruptcy. On January 28, 2021, Newvatican announced that collections to Bergoglio's scam charity, Peter's Pence, fell by 56 per cent since Bergoglio's embezzlement hit the front pages: 15 per cent in 2021, 18 per cent in 2020, and 23 per cent in 2015-2019. Now the scam fund is taking in only about 40,000,000 USD, and Newvatican has been pushed to the brink of bankruptcy. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]

Traditional Catholics, Newvatican has attempted to explain the precipitous drop in Newchurchers' collections by the Red China Virus, but the drop began in 2015, just after the 2014 embezzlement was reported, long before the virus came. Now Newvatican has a deficit of 33,000,000 USD. Bankruptcy is pressing down on Newvatican. It is clear that many Newchurchers are now aware of Francis-Bergoglio's scam fund and have cut him off at the knees. They are walking out in droves, and Newchurches are being closed right and left, as many as half of the Newchurches in many Newdioceses.

Not Surprisingly, Francis-Bergoglio's Newvatican Defends Ex-Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger
After Ratzinger Was Found Guilty by a Newchurch Investigation of Covering up Paedophile Crimes

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Benedict-Ratzinger Kisses a Boy on the Lips
At the End of a Newpapal Audience
A Newchurch Investigative Report Has Found Ratzinger Guilty
Of Covering up the Paedophile Crimes of a Presbyter
And Appointing Him Pastor of a Munich Newchurch
Ratzinger Has Been Exposed as a Self-confessed Liar
In Denying His Presence at the Meeting
At Which the Presbyter's Fate Was Discussed
Now Newvatican Has Officially Lauded
This Second Paedophile Newpope
And Trivialized His Paedophile Crimes over 31 Years

After the issuance of the report commissioned by the Newarchdiocese of Munich, Germany, finding that its previous Newarchbishop Josef Ratzinger, who later dubbed himself Benedict XVI, had been personally involved in covering up the paedophile crimes of a notorious presbyter, who was later appointed to be a pastor in Munich, the world was waiting to see whether Newchurch would honestly admit that its Ex-Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger was an accomplice in paedophile cover-up.

Ratzinger's guilt was further proven by the fact that, as he himself admitted, he had lied about his presence at the meeting that allowed the predator presbyter to continue his predations against children in Munich, and then, when Ratzinger was caught in his lie of denying his involvement, he claimed that it was a clerical error!

So, not surprisingly, in the statement issued by Newchurch exactly one week later, Newchurch refused to acknowledge Ratzinger's paedophile crimes, but instead defended the Second Paedophile Newpope and even praised him for his collaboration with the notorious First Paedophile Newpope, "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla, who personally let off the infamous Newcardinal Bernard Law, of Boston, Massachusetts, the man whose actions thrust Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust onto the front pages of the world's newspapers in 2002.

The press officer for the current Third Paedophile Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio, dared to call Ratzinger a "scapegoat," even though the evidence found by the Newchurch firm investigating him shows exactly the opposite. The press officer claimed that Ratzinger had fought against the rape, sodomy, and sexual assaults upon children by tens of thousands Newchurch cardinals, bishops, and presbyters. In fact, Ratzinger had spent 23 years presiding over tens of thousands of similar cover-ups during his time as the Sex Crimes Czar under the First Paedophile Newpope JPII-Wojtyla from 1981 to 2005, and then running Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust in his own right as Newpope from 2005-2013. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by CBS News.]

Traditional Catholics, Benedict-Ratzinger, like his successor, Francis-Bergoglio, pandered the line of "mercy" for child rapists, ignoring the parallel Christian virtue of Justice, when Ratzinger issued empty word-salads and had orchestrated press meetings with the few child victims that could be forced to appear with him. The facts of the matter are clear: JPII-Wojtyla, Ratzinger, and Bergoglio are all accomplices in the subornation of paedophile crimes. Newvatican's billion-dollar-bought propaganda press machine, funded by the few remaining Newchurchers in the pews, cannot cover up this simple fact. That is why so many Newchurchers have rightly abandoned the sinking Newchurch in the last two decades since the Paeophile Holocaust came to public attention.

Mel Gibson, of "The Passion of the Christ," Announces His Next Project: "Father Stu"
The Real-life Drama of a Down-and-out "Converted" Newchurch Presbyter

"Father Stu," the Story of a Down-and-Out
Boxer Turned Newchurch Presbyter
Ironically, Gibson Detests Newchurch
And Its Apostate Newpopes

Traditional Catholic producer-director-actor Mel Gibson, who produced and directed the 2004 Traditional Catholic blockbuster "The Passion of the Christ," has announced that he will star in "Father Stu," which was purchased on January 25, 2022, by Sony Pictures. Co-starring and co-producing will be Mark Wahlberg, who has starred in many films, such as 2000's "The Perfect Storm." Walberg is a Newchurcher, who publicly advocates sodomitic "marriage."

“Father Stu” is billed as a true-life "faith-based" drama and will be released in theaters on Good Friday, April 15, 2022. "Father Stu" is the story of a down-and-out boxer turned Newchurch presbyter. Ironically, Gibson so detests the Newchurch of the New Order that he funded and built his own Holy Family Church in Agoura Hills in Southern California and has staffed the church with a traditional priest since the mid 2000s with the proceeds of "The Passion of the Christ." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Variety.]

Traditional Catholics, it is ironic that Mel Gibson himself detests the Newchurch of the New Order and its apostate popes, about which he has been publicly vocal. His father for many years before his death published the Traditional Catholic journal "The War Is Now," which documented the heresies perpetrated by Newchurch and called on true Catholics to war against them. Wahlberg, on the other hand, is a Newchurcher and promoter of sodomitic "marriage." Hollywood sure does make strange bedfellows!

Confirmations and Ordinations Are Now Prohibited in the 1962 New Latin Rite
As Newcardinal-Primate Nichols Has Confirmed with Newrome

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Vincent Nichols

Newcardinal Vincent Nichols
Newchurch's Primate of England and Wales
Has Confirmed with Newrome
That Confirmations and Ordinations Are Prohibited
In the 1962 New Latin Rite Worldwide
All Scheduled and Future Confirmations
Have Been Canceled
In Any Case, Confirmations and Ordinations
Simulated by Newchurch's Bishops Are Invalid
Because These Bishops Have Never Been Consecrated
As the the Catholic Episcopate Was Abolished
In the Newchurch of the New Order in 1968
When Newchurch Adopted an Invalid
Protestantized "New Ordinal"

Vincent Nichols, Newcardinal Primate of England and Wales, has confirmed with Newrome that all Confirmations and Ordinations in the 1962 New Latin Rite are now prohibited under Francis-Bergoglio's July 16, 2022, decree "Traditionis custodes" and the December 18, 2022, follow-up regulations issued by Newcardinal Arthur Roche, Prefect of Newchurch's Congregation for Divine Worship, and personally approved by Bergoglio.

Nichols wrote the Latin Mess Society on January 20, 2022, specifically to forbid the Confirmations already planned for two dates in 2022 and all future Confirmations. Because the 1962 New Latin Pontifical is now prohibited, the rites of Confirmation and Ordination, contained within it, are prohibited These "sacraments' are, in any case, invalid because they are being simulated by Newbishops in Newchurch who were never consecrated, as Newchurch abolished the Catholic priesthood and the episcopate in 1968 when it adopted an invalid Protestantized "New Ordinal." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, even the President of the Latin Mess Society had to admit publicly the dirty secret that because the fully Traditional Latin Mass (1950) and Traditional Latin Sacraments were being suppressed by Newchurch, an increasing number of young people have been leaving the Newchurch of the New Order and seeking the Traditional Latin Mass and Sacraments with independent Traditional Catholic priests and bishops, who do not regard the Newchurch, founded in 1964 at the heretical Vatican II Anti-council, as the Catholic Church.

Ex-Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger Admits that He Lied
He Was Present at the Meeting that Covered up a Rapist Presbyter of 23 Boys from Age 8 to 16

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Sex Crimes Have Been Dethroning
The Highest Newchurch Officials
In Their Nineties
Recently, It Was the Notorious Paedophile
Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick
Now Ex-Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger
Has Been Caught Red Handed
Covering up Several Paedophile Presbyters
With His Direct Knowledge
Now that an Investigation Is Breathing down His Neck
Ratzinger Has Now Been Forced to Confesse His Lie

Ex-Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger admitted on January 24, 2022, that he had lied when he told investigators that he was not present at a meeting of Newarchdiocesan officials in Munich, Germany, to discuss the cover-up paedophile presbyters. Ratzinger now has confessed: "The statement to the contrary was therefore objectively incorrect."

Ratzinger has become the focus of a 1,000-page January 20, 2022, report of the Newarchdiocesan investigation into cover-ups of sex crimes against children when he was Newarchbishop of Munich before he was shuttled off to Newrome to serve as Sex Crimes Czar for the First Paedophile Newpope, Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla.

Ratzinger claims that the lie was merely an "editing error" in the 82-page apologia that he submitted to the investigators. Ratzinger originally stated that he was not present at the meeting when a notorious paedophile presbyter's crimes were covered up by his transfer into Ratzinger's Newarchdiocese for "therapy." After the "therapy" the presbyter was assigned to a Munich Newparish to operate without restrictions. This presbyter sexually assaulted at least 23 boys aged 8 to 16. Ratzinger now admits the lie and begs to be "excused." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, even the President of Francis-Bergoglio's Executive Committee to Run the Finances of Newchurch, Newcardinal Reinhard Marx, told the press that he was “shocked and ashamed” at Benedict-Ratzinger's misconduct. Ratzinger is far from the only high Newchurch official to pay for his crimes in his nineties. Another glaring example is the notorious paedophile Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick, who got away until 2019 with raping, sodomizing, and otherwise sexually assaulting children and young Newseminarians up and down the east coast of the United States because he was a fundraiser for the Newpopes. McCarrick is now on trial for his crimes at age 91. Ratzinger is 94 and luxuriates in the "diplomatic immunity" of the corrupt Newvatican.

The Supreme Court of Australia Holds Newchurch Dioceses Legally Responsible for Sex Crimes
Francis-Bergoglio's Defense of "Sovereign Immunity" Was Specifically Rejected

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Supreme Court of Australia

The Supreme Court of Australia
Sitting in Melbourne
Has Set a Landmark Precedent
That Newchurch is Legally Responsible
Its Presbyters' Sex Crimes against Children
The Court Specifically Overruled the Newvatican
Which Contended that It Could Not Be Held Liable
And Could Suborn Sex Crimes
Of Its Newclergy with Impunity
Because of Feigned "Sovereign Immunity"

For the first time in the history of Australia, the Supreme Court of Victoria sitting in Melbourne set a new landmark precedent on December 22, 2022, that Newchurch is legally responsible for its presbyters' sex crimes against children. The court specifically overruled Newvatican's contention that it could not be held liable because of feigned "sovereign immunity."

The case involved presbyter Bryan Coffey, who had been convicted of sex crimes against a five-year-old child in 1999. Newchurch was ordered to pay 165,000 USD to the child victim. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic register.]

Traditional Catholics, henceforth in Australia, a Newchurch bishop will be held liable for the acts of his predatory presbyters. In the United States Newchurch is being held liable for the predations of the notorious Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick, of Washington, D.C., who had raped, sodomized, and otherwise sexually assaulted children and young Newseminarians up and down the east coast of the United States. It seems that Newvatican's contention that it is a "sovereign power," able to assault children with impunity, is going down for the count. At this rate Francis-Bergoglio might just face justice for his own complicity in a multitude of paedophile crimes.

Francis-Bergoglio Exposed in Court as "Fleecing" Newchurchers
In a Lengthy Memorandum by the No. 2 in His Secretariat of State

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Edgar Pena Parra

Newarchbishop Edgar Pena Parra
Deputy Head of Newvatican's Secretariat of State
Has Issued a Lengthy Memorandum
In Which He Documents that Francis-Bergoglio Himself
Embezzled Nearly 500,000,000 USD
From His Fake Charity, Known as Peter's Pence
In a 2015 London Real Estate Scam
Bergoglio Himself Authorized the 2019 Payoff
To His Dirty Financial Operative, Gian Luigi Torzi
To Cover up the Failed Deal

The cat is now out of the bag. It was Francis-Bergoglio himself who engineered the steps that lead to the nearly 500,000,000 USD embezzlement of funds from his fraudulent Peter's Pence charity in the notorious 2015 London Real Estate Scam. Thus wrote the No. 2 official, Newarchbishop Edgar Pena Perra, Sostituto (Deputy Head) of Newvatican's Secretariat of State, in a lengthy memorandum.

The funds embezzled by Bergoglio and his henchmen came out of Bergoglio's fraudulent charity known as Peter's Pence, which is funded by mandatory collections at the Newparish level, supposedly for the most needy. The memorandum documents the fact that Bergoglio personally ordered the payoff to his dirty financial operative, Gian Luigi Torzi, in 2019.

Bergoglio was informed of the dealings on a regular monthly and even weekly basis every step of the way. When the dealings went under, and the half billion USD scam was exposed, Bergoglio illegally connived with Newvatican prosecutors to finger the then-No. 2 Sostituto, Newcardinal Angelo Becciu. Becciu, however, turned state's evidence and fingered Bergoglio himself as the perpetrator. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]

Traditional Catholics, the ongoing trial of Francis-Bergoglio's fall guys has been thrown into chaos, and the court has dropped many of the charges, while it further investigates Bergoglio's involvement. This is said to be the first time that a Newvatican court has heard evidence of illegalities by a sitting Newpope. Newarchbishop Parra's memorandum is devastating. As has been suspected all along by informed sources, it has now been documented that Bergoglio himself was the mastermind behind the embezzlement of charitable donations from his Newchurchers that were supposed to go to charity, not to corrupt Newchurch officials and operatives. If modern Romans had the guts of their forefathers in dealing with corrupt popes, they would long ago have thrown Bergoglio into the Tiber River to meet his eternal judgment.

A Reader Asks: "Why Does the Lord's Prayer in the Catholic Douay-Rheims Version
Have 'Our Father Who Art in Heaven,' whereas the Protestant King James Version Has 'Which Art'?"

From: Ron
Our Father

The Protestant King James Version
Renders the Lord's Prayer Using
"Our Father Which Art in Heaven"
Whereas the Traditional Catholic Rheims Version
Has "Our Father Who Art in Heaven"
Actually, the Original Rheims Version of 1582
Also Had "Which"
But when Bishop Challoner
Revised That Version in 1749
He Updated the "Which" to "Who"
As "Which" in the Sense of "Who"
Had Become Archaic
Over the Intervening Two Centuries

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

In the Pater Noster (Lord's Prayer), the English rendering in the Douay-Rheims-Challoner Traditional Catholic Version begins: "Our Father Who art in Heaven," whereas the venerable King James Protestant Version begins: "Our Father, Which art in Heaven." Using "which" almost makes God sound like a thing rather than a person. Why is there this difference in the versions?

Also, more often than not, the word "Heaven" is nowadays written in lower case letters. Shouldn't it be capitalized as a proper noun?


The usage of "which" in the sense of "who" is not a theological matter. It is a matter of the provenance of the English used. In Early Modern English, around the time of Shakespeare (circa 1600), "which" is used as a relative pronoun in the later sense of "who." Both the Protestant King James Version of 1610 and the original Catholic Rheims New Testament Version of 1582 use the relative pronoun "which."

When Bishop Challoner revised the Douay-Rheims version in 1749 -- and that is the version used in those Bibles called "Douay-Rheims" -- he changed the "which" to "who," in order to accord with what was then contemporary practice, as "which" in the sense of "who" had become archaic by two centuries later. Challoner's version also removed other archaisms and revised some of the sentence structure and names. He did, however, leave the formal pronoun ("thou," "thy," "thee," etc.) and the now-archaic forms of the verb "to be," including "art" for "are"

Using St. Jerome's official Latin Vulgate avoids all the problems introduced by the vulgar (vernacular) tongues. Every Catholic should have the basic prayers of the Church memorized in Latin (Pater Noster, Ave Maria, Gloria Patri, etc.).

As to capitalization, Modern style guides, such as the Chicago Manual of Style, tend to deemphasize capitalization. We prefer to keep the capital for such words as Heaven, Hell, Saint, etc.

Benedict-Ratzinger Charged with "Misconduct" in Devastating Official Newchurch Report
Documenting His Knowing Cover-up of Paedophile Sex Crimes while Newcardinal of Munich

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Josef Benedict-Ratzinger
As Newarchbishop of Munich
Surrounded by His "Altar Boys"
Now an Official Newchurch Report Has Found
The Second Paedophile Newpope Guilty of "Misconduct"
In Covering up the Sex Crimes
Of His Paedophile Presbyters
While He Was Newcardinal of Munich, Germany
Ratzinger Went on to Cover up Tens of Thousands
Of Paedophile Crimes by Newcardinals, Newbishops
And Presbyters while He Was Sex Crimes Czar
Under the First Paedophile Newpope, JPII-Wojtyla

In 2018, a Newchurch-commissioned report found that some 4,000 children were raped, sodomized, and otherwise sexually assaulted by German Newclergy. More than half of the victims were 13 or younger, and nearly a third served as "altar boys."

On January 20, 2022, an independent investigation by a law firm hired by the Newchurch archdiocese of Munich, Germany, which the Second Paedophile Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger ran from 1977 to 1982, issued its devastating report that charges Ratzinger for knowingly covering-up the sex crimes of paedophile presbyters in his own Newarchdiocese. This, it turns out, was the prelude to his 23 years of presiding over tens of thousands of similar cover-ups during his time as the Sex Crimes Czar under the First Paedophile Newpope JPII-Wojtyla from 1981 to 2005, and then running Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust in his own right as Newpope from 2005-2013.

Ratzinger submitted an 82-page apologia denying his guilt, but the investigation firm found his response not to be credible. A member of the firm summarized the findings as "Ratzinger can be accused of misconduct." Ratzinger allowed paedophile presbyters to remain in pastoral work with no limitations, nor were any penalties assessed under Newchurch canon law. They went on scot free. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by theNational Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, the report also charges an intimate of the Third Paedophile Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio, namely, the heretic Newcardinal Reihnard Marx, who succeeded as Munich's Newcardinal. Marx, who publicly acknowledged his guiltiness, offered to abdicate, but Bergoglio refused to allow his bosom buddy and President of Bergoglio's Executive Committee to Run the Finances of Newchurch to leave. Now the Second Paedophile Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger has been officially outed as a paedophile accomplice. It remains to be seen whether the Neocon Newchurchers, who idolize the ex-Nazi Youth operative have the guts finally to walk out on his apostate Newchurch of the New Order.

St. Jerome Was a Brilliant Scholar
Who Read, Wrote, and Spoke All Three Biblical Languages
Latin, Greek, and Hebrew
He Had Access to Earlier Manuscripts of the Bible

Moreover, Many Protestant Bible Lack Eight Books
Without Which There Is a Gaping Hole
Between the Last Hebrew Prophet Malachias
And the First Gospel, a Period of Some 500 Years

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

I have had Newchurchers tell me that I should avoid the Catholic Bible (from St. Jerome's Latin Vulgate) and read non-Catholic ones instead. Does this advice make any sense, or is it a product of Newchurch's Oecumenical Heresy ("we all worship the same gods"; "all religions are true")?


The Protestant Bible is defective. It is missing eight books of the Old Testament, a period of some 500 years after the prophet Nehemias and before the Gospel of St. Matthew.. Lately, some Protestant versions of the Bible are beginning to realize their mistake and are putting the eight Catholic books back in, as they were in the original King James Version of 1611.

St. Jerome, who made the Latin Vulgate translation, was a scholar of the highest degree. He read, wrote, and spoke Latin, Greek, and Hebrew, the three sacred languages. No modern scholar has that facility. Moreover, St. Jerome had access to earlier manuscripts of the Bible that are lost to modern times. It is his Latin Vulgate, translated around the year 400, that was decreed by the dogmatic Council of Trent to be the official Bible of the Catholic Church. (Note that Newchurch corrupted even the sacred Latin Vulgate into a "New Vulgate" in 1979.)

Protestant "translations" (and that includes Newchurch "translations" like the New American Bible) are corrupted and ugly to boot. Most of them are not literal versions, but introduce political and sociological considerations into the text The traditional Catholic Douay-Rheims Version (1582, 1610), which was published shortly before the venerable King James Version, is a straightforward (literal) rendition of the original tongues. The Protestants would be best off sticking with the King James Version, which is both straightforward (literal) and beautiful, done with the purpose of being read aloud from the pulpit and containing, in its original form, the eight missing "Catholic" books of the Old Testament.

Newchurch Clergy in Ireland Are Dying off in Record Numbers
And It's Not only because of the Red China Virus in the Once Most Catholic Country

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Newchurch Graph

Newchurch in Once-Catholic Ireland
Is Crashing and Burning
Since the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965)
More than One in Five Newchurch Presbyters
Has Died off in just the Last Three Years
And No Young Men Have Come Forward
To Ruin Their Lives by Serving the Corrupt Newchurch
Thus, Ireland, Which before the Anti-council
Produced So Many Priests
That It Staffed Parishes and Schools All over the World
Now Cannot even Staff Its Own Newparishes
As Newchurchers Increasing Finally Are Rejecting
The Apostate Newchurch of the New Order

Ireland was known before the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) as the most Catholic country on the planet. However, after decades of rampant paedophile crimes by Irish presbyters, the Irish and government and people have turned against the Newchurch of the New Order and its Newpopes. When Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger wanted to visit Ireland, the Prime Minister at the time told him not to come because he could not protect him from the Irish who wanted to kill him for suborning the rape and sodomy of Irish children.;

On January 14, 2022, it was reported that even if Newchurch could operate in Ireland as before, there wouldn't be any presbyters left to do so because in just the last three years more than one out of every five presbyters has died. It isn't the Red China Virus so much that is killing them off, but the fact that most of the presbyters are old, and no Irish young men are interested in sacrificing their lives to become presbyters -- not priests, as Newchurch stopped ordaining priests in 1968 when it adopted a Protestantized Ordinal -- to replace them in the corrupt Newchurch. No Newchurch presbyter has been installed in Cork, for example, in over four years. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.

Traditional Catholics, Ireland has seen a steep decline in the number of its citizens identifying as Newchurchers. In just the five years between 2011 and 2016, the number declined by six per cent. The number of active presbyters is expected to plummet when Ireland emerges from the pandemic. At that time presbyters who postponed their retirement because of the dearth of Newchurch clergy will retire at an accelerated rate. Before the Anti-council Ireland produced so many priests that it transferred them out of Ireland to staff parishes and schools all over the world. In fact, Irish priests once constituted a large percentage of the priests in the United States. Now Newchurch in Ireland cannot even staff its own country.

As Newchurch Sinks, Francis-Bergoglio Is Now Failing in His Day-to-Day Duties
Swamped by a Tremendous Backup of Official Paperwork to Implement His Dictatorship

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Francis-Bergoglio, Who Is Being Called
Il Papa Dittatore (The Dictator Pope)
Within His Own Newchurch of the New Order
Is Swamped under a Tremendous Backup
Of Official Paperwork to Support HIs Dictatorship
He Wants to Center All Decisions in Himself
But He Is Incompetent
To Run the Newchurch by Himself
He Hasn't even Appointed a Camerarius
To Run the Newchurch after His Death
During Its Sede Vacante Period

Francis-Bergoglio has made it clear that he believes himself to be the Dictator of Newchurch. Yet he has grotesquely violated Catholic doctrine again and again. His model is not the dogma of the Catholic Church, most clearly enunciated by the dogmatic First Vatican Council (1870), but the Communist dictatorships, which Bergoglio admires. He is a great supporter, for example, of the Communist Chinese President, Xi Jinping, even though Xi has murdered more of Bergoglio's presbyters and Newbishops than can be counted.

In the Catholic Church, a true pope is curtailed by Sacred Tradition and Canon Law -- not the made-up Canon Law of Newchurch, but the Tradition-bound principles enunciated by Gratian and the Doctors and Canonists of the Church. The dogmatic First Vatican Council (Constitutio Dogmatica Prima de Ecclesia Christi, "Pastor aeternus," cap. 4, "De Romani Pontificis Infallibili Magisterio," July 18, 1870) couldn't have been clearer in its definition of the limitations of the papacy:

Neque enim Petri successoribus Spiritus sanctus promissus est, ut eo revelante novam doctrinam patefacerent, sed ut eo assistente traditam per apostolos revelationem seu fidei depositum sancte custodirent et fideliter exponerent.
[For the Holy Ghost was promised to the successors of Peter not so that they might, by His revelation, make known some new doctrine, but that, by His assistance, they might religiously guard and faithfully expound the revelation or Deposit of Faith transmitted by the Apostles.

The Newchurch dictator Bergoglio spews opinions and partially-formulated intentions, but has not reduced them officially to writing. He utters loose talk in airplane press conferences, but he is utterly behind in promulgating official documents. He is also under water in making appointments. In fact, when he dies, he has no official Camerarius officially installed to run Newchurch! Even in those cases when he issues unofficial vernacular documents, as "Traditionis custodes," suppressing the New Latin Mess of 1962, the official Latin version often waits many months, during which the new law is in suspense. If Bergoglio should die, his entire Newchurch is sede vacante, with no one to run it.

Supposedly, Bergoglio wants to "reorganize" (i.e., destroy) his Newroman Curia, but a December 2019 draft to do so is still nowhere in sight for release. Because the dictator Newpope insists on passing on everything personally, his revolution is stalled. Suffering from a Narcissistic Personality Disorder psychosis, Bergoglio trusts no one, not even the heads of the Departments whom he himself has appointed. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic Culture News Service.]

Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio has, moreover, been severely sidetracked by the trial, now going on in a Newvatican court, involving the embezzlement of some half a billion U.S. dollars to buy a now-forfeited London property. Bergoglio wanted Newcardinal Angelo Becciu to take the rap, but Becciu turned on Bergoglio and gave evidence that Bergoglio himself had orchestrated the embezzlement from his phony charity, Peter's Pence. The court has already dismissed most of the charges against other defendants and is now hearing testimony that Bergoglio himself was the Embezzler in Chief. No wonder Bergoglio has been sidetracked with a bigger fish to fry -- himself!

Benedict-Ratzinger Named as Paedophile Accomplice in Newchurch Court Report
He Covered up the Crimes of a Paedophile Presbyter, then Lied about His Involvement

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Incense Enshrouds Benedict-Ratzinger
Like the Smoke of Satan
As a Newchurch Court Report Fingers Him
For Having Covered up the Crimes
Of a Paedophile Presbyter
Then Having Lied about His Involvement
The Presbyter Went on to Assault
At least Two Dozen Children
While Ratzinger, Now Head of Sex Crimes
For Newvatican under the Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla
Refused to Expel the Paedophile Presbyter

On January 14, 2022, a leaked Newchurch report accused Newpope Benedict-Ratinzinger of a criminal cover-up of paedophile crimes under his regime in Munich, when he was Newarchbishop there. More than two dozen children went on record to say that sex crimes were committed against them when children by Newclergy led by Ratzinger. The children were "softened up" for the crimes by being given alcohol and pornography.

Ratzinger's defense is, like the laughable Sergeant Schulz on German stalag comedy "Hogan's Heroes": "I know nothing!" But the report, emanating from a Newchurch court, flatly denies Ratzinger's statement by finding that he "consciously waived a sanctioning of the criminal acts” and "ignored the obligation to report such crimes directly to Rome." Ratzinger's current spokesman, Newarchbishop Georg Ganswein, refused to provide detailed answers about Ratzinger's criminal presbyters and their victims.

The court's report exposes "a complete cover-up" by Ratzinger, involving violations of Newchurch requirements so that that the presbyter in question was allowed to assault sexually more children. When Ratzinger's successor, Newcardinal Reinhard Marx, attempted to get Ratzinger, now in charge of sex crimes for Newchurch as Prefect under the Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla, to expel the paedophile presbyter, Ratzinger refused. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Irish Times.]

Traditional Catholics, a canon lawyer assisting the Newchurch court in its report, summed up Benedict-Ratzinger's complicity in the crimes: "There's no good shepherd here." For 24 years as Newvatican's head of sex crimes, Ratzinger presided over a virtual holocaust of sex crimes against children, with very few criminal presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals being punished or expelled, while tens of thousands of children were raped, sodomized, and otherwise sexually assaulted. Yet, "I know nothing," says Ratzinger, the former Hitler Youth member, as he himself admits in his own autobiography.

Francis-Bergoglio Claims to Love the Poor, but Will Admit only the Rich
Illegally into His Newchurch Universities Like Notre Dame and Georgetown

Once Dedicated to Our Lady
It Has Been So Corrupted
That It Has Been Dragged into U.S. Federal Court

That It Has Been Defrauding Its Students
To Give Awards to Rich Students
And Turn away Poor Students
In Violation of Federal Antitrust Law
Newchurch's Georgetown University
In Washington, D.C.
Has Also Been Implicated in the Fraud

Newchurch universities, like Notre Dame in South Bend, Indiana, and Georgetown in Washington, D.C., were dragged into United States Federal Court on January 12, 2022, for a conspiracy to rig financial awards to students in order to shut out poorer students and admit students of rich parents. The fraud resulted in raised net tuition prices.

This crime drips with hypocrisy, as the head of the Newchurch, Francis-Bergoglio, always claims that he speaks for the poor. Such preferential treatment to the rich violates U.S. antitrust law. Notre Dame is run by the Newcongregation of the Holy Cross, which is not the original Holy Cross Congregation, but a Newchurch knockoff. Georgetown is run by the Newjesuits, who since the 1960s have been practicing revolutionary Marxism. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]

Traditional Catholics, as Newchurch's immorality takes hold and spreads, paedophile crimes, embezzlement, and fraud from the top spreads. Examples are rife. The rampant paedophile Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick raped and sodomized children up and down the East Coast of the United States for decades, but was excused with impunity for years because he was a fund-raiser for the Newpopes. Newpope Francis-Bergoglio himself embezzled almost 500,000,000 USD from his fraudulent charitable fund, Peter's Pence. The Newchurch sewer has now sprung so many leaks that the stench is now exposing its corruption worldwide.

Francis-Bergoglio Has Virtually Shut down His Newvatican Messes and Museums
Entry into Newvatican Territory Will Now Require a "Super Green Pass" Like Hitler's "Papers" for Jews

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Francis-Bergoglio behind His Mask
Has Imposed upon His Newvatican
Even Stricter Vaccination Requirements
Than Are Allowed by the European Union
He Has Curtailed New Order Messes
Cut Visits to Newvatican Museums
And Threatened His Employees
With Dismissal if They Don't Have
A "Super Green Card"
Reminiscent of the "Papers" that Hitler
Required Jews to Carry
As a Result Bergoglio's Newvatican Finances
Already Declared to Be Near Bankruptcy
By His Chief Auditor
Will Hit a Perhaps Irrecoverable New Low

It seems as if Providence has started to interfere with Francis-Bergoglio's plans to secularize and paganize his Newchurch of the New Order. He has panicked and moved to shut down his Newvatican again out of fear of the Red China Virus, even in its weakened form known as the omicron variant. He has implemented far more restrictive terms than the country of Italy around him and the European Union as a whole has permitted, while at the same time admitting that some of those who have lost their jobs are committing suicide, a sin that objectively damns the individual to Hell.

On December 23, 2021, Bergoglio started the first phase of his Newvatican's partial shutdown. New Order Messes are being curtailed and simulated without a substantial congregation. The Swiss Guards will prevent anyone attempting to enter Newvatican without a Super Green Pass, all too reminiscent of German Dictator Adolf Hitler's requirement that Jews carry "papers." Full vaccination, including booster shots, will be required. Negative tests are not acceptable. Ironically, there will be no "religious exemptions."

On January 5, 2022, Bergoglio announced that all visitors to the Vatican Museums and Gardens must also present a "Super Green Pass." On January 31, 2022, Bergoglio announced that Newvatican employees without a Super Green Pass will be liable for dismissal. Yet, since October 2020, when the weakened omicron variant started to spread, not a single death from the Red China Virus has been reported. Some Swiss Guards have quit because of Bergoglio's autocratic mandate. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio, by his excessive, autocratic moves is shooting himself in the foot. He will suffer the loss of more income from curtailed museum admissions, even though his Chief Auditor has publicly stated that Newvatican is on the verge of bankruptcy, accelerated by Bergoglio's own embezzlement of almost 500,000,000 USD of donations to his scam charitable fund, Peter's Pence, funded from "second collections" at Newchurches around the world. However, attendance at his Newchurches even before the Red China Virus dropped to below five per cent.

Francis-Bergoglio's Henchman, Newcardinal Tobin, Lets the Cat out of the Bag
Bergoglio Has in Mind to "Excommunicate" Neocon Newchurchers Who Resist His Apostasy

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Joseph Tobin & Francis-Bergoglio

The Corpulent Newcardinal Joseph Tobin
Gives an Intimate Squeeze
To His Co-conspirator Francis-Bergoglio
The Two Are Engaged, together with Other Henchman
In a Plan to Paganize Thoroughly the Newchurch
By Means of a 2023 "Vatican III" General Synod
The Result Will Be a Newchurch Far Worse
Than What the Protestant Revolutionaries Fabricated
A Fully Secularized, Pagan Fake

If you are a Neocon Newchurcher, that is a Neo-conservative who likes the Half New Order "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962 and some semblance of Catholic doctrine, as on abortion and sodomy, Francis-Bergoglio has now indicated that he is of a mind to "excommunicate" you from his Newchurch. Thus spake Bergoglio's intimate, Newcardinal Joseph Tobin, of Newark, New Jersey, who was a protege of the sodomitic Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick, who is now on trial for sexually assaulting children. Tobin has also had charges of the sexual assault of children leveled against his Newarchbishopric.

On January 11, 2022, Tobin stated that those who fail to accord themselves with Bergoglio's plan fully to secularize and paganize the Newchurch of the New Order by means of a General Synod in 2023, which is essentially a "Vatican III," are now viewed as heretics. Accordingly, they are subject to "excommunication" from the Newchurch of the New Order. Bergoglio's plan has become increasingly criticized not as religion, let alone "Catholic," but as a Leftist political initiative couched in secular Radical Leftist jargon, like "discernment" and "spirit" and "synodality." Now Jesus Christ and the true Catholic Church are no longer essential for salvation, but the "synodal process," which is far worse than the Protestant Revolution. Not to embrace this revolutionary New Newchurch of the The Synod is viewed as "heresy." It's the Vatican II Anti-council all over again, but worse, if that were possible. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Newjesuit Review ":America."]

Newcardinal Tobin is a known henchman of Bergoglio. Thus, his words clearly indicate the next step in Newchurch's plan to wipe out any traditionalist-leaning Neocon Newchurchers: take away their unpriest presbyters (already accomplished in 1968), take away their Half New Order "Extraordinary" Mess of 1962 (already accomplished in 1969), and now, for the triple whammy, "excommunicate" them as "heretics."

But not to worry. Ecclesiastical history teaches us that all this has happened before, on more than one occasion. The clearest precedent took place when the Arian heretics of the fourth century, who had taken over the Church with their denial of Christ as God, including several popes and most of the bishops according to St. Jerome, "excommunicated" the true Catholics and the Saints. It took a century or more, but the heretics were eventually routed out, and the true Catholics retook the Church.

The difference between then and now is that in the fourth century the true Catholics fought back. And these fighters were some of the greatest Saints of the Church in history: St. Athanasius of Alexandria, St. Basil the Great, St. Martin of Tours, St. Augustine of Hippo, St. Ambrose of Milan, and scores more who are commemorated in the fully Traditional Latin Mass. Today, the Neocon Newchurchers have no saints. They bend the knee to the current apostate Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio. They are pusillanimous, to use Our Lord's word: they don't fight back for the Catholic Faith (if they ever had it). That is why they will be destroyed in the short term, whereas Traditional Catholics, independent of the apostate, Vatican II Anti-council's Newchurch of the New Order, will prevail in the long term.

Traditional Catholics, the true Catholic Church will be rebuilt from the independent Traditional Catholic churches, chapels, and oratories around the world that do not recognize the heretic Newchurch of the New Order. The Newchurch, founded in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) to replace the Catholic Church, is, according to all the statistics, now sinking rapidly, on the verge of bankruptcy according to Newvatican's Chief Auditor, with its "New Mess" attendance so meager that in many Newdioceses, more than half of their existing church buildings are being shut down and demolished.

Orthodox Metropolitan Hilarion Kills Once and for all the Notion of Newchurch-Orthodox "Reunification"
Vatican II Anti-council's Heresy of "Oecumenism" Is Rejected, and Francis-Bergoglio Is Cut Off

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Russian Orthodox Metropolitan Hilarion
Has Told Francis-Bergoglio in No Uncertain Terms
That the Orthodox Are Remaining Catholic and Apostolic
And Have No Intention of Participating
In Newchurch's Oecumenical Heresy
No Further Meetings with Bergoglio Are Planned
Hilarion's Announcement Followed an Incident
In Which a Greek Orthodox Priest
Publicly Screamed at Bergoglio:
"Pope [Sic], You Are a Heretic!"

In the early 1960s "reunification" between the Catholic Church and the Eastern Orthodox was a big talking point. But in 1962-1965 the Vatican II Anti-council sat and went too far, defining the Heresy of Oecumenism --- we all worship the same gods, all religions are true -- and creating the Newchurch of the New Order in 1964 founded upon this (as well as other) heresies. But the Eastern Orthodox remained catholic and apostolic on this point and never really bought into the heresy.

Francis-Bergoglio has a burning political (not religious) desire for "reunification." He even mouthed off about it on his return from his junket to Greece on December 6, 2021. It was on that junket that a Greek Orthodox priest garnered quite a lot of news coverage by screaming at Bergoglio: "Pope [sic], you are a heretic!." Six days later, the Metropolitan Hilarion, vicar head of the largest Orthodox sect, the Russian Orthodox, told Bergoglio that he can take his heretical "oecumenism" and pound sand. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic Citizens.]

Traditional Catholics, the Russian Orthodox are remaining catholic and apostolic, and have no intention of participating in Newchurch's Oecumenical Heresy. No further meetings with Bergoglio are planned. Hilarion turned all of Newchurch's "apologies" to the Orthodox against Bergoglio. At least the Orthodox have the guts to call a spade a spade and call Bergoglio out for the heretic that he is, even if Newchurchers are too pusillanimous to do so!

Under Francis-Bergoglio's apostate regime, if you're a paedophile Newprelate, you're safe, but if you resist Bergoglio's July 16, 2022, decree "Traditionis custodes," suppressing the Half New Order "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962, you're out!

That's what Newarchbishop Giacomo Morandi, Secretary of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith, found out when he resisted Bergoglio's decree. Bergoglio shunted Morandi off to be Newbishop of little Reggio Emilia, Italy. Bergoglio will now appoint a more Leftist heretic Newprelate to the No. 2 position. There are even reports from Newrome that Bergoglio wants to take over the Congregation personally so that he can impose his heretical Marxist theology directly upon the Newchurch of the New Order. The current prefect of the Congregation, Newcardinal Luis Ladaria, has already passed the retirement age and is expected to be canned later in 2022. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio canned Newarchbishop Morandi because he ran afoul of the apostate Newpope in a double whammy: he resisted Bergoglio's decree to suppress the New Latin Mess, and he wrote a theological opinion against Newchurch's blessing of "gay marriages." In the latter case, Bergoglio, who claims that he can't judge one of the Four Biblical Sins that Cry out to God for Retribution, has already indicated that he favors sodomitic marriages, under the guise of "civil unions." He has already received one "gay" award for his support of sodomy. Perhaps he is angling for another.

In Spite of the Fact that He Is a Self-admitted Marxists and a Paedophile Facilitator?"

From: Michael

Francis-Bergoglio Appears to Wear a Fake Halo
With Which All Too Many Newchurchers Invest Him
In Fact, Bergoglio Has Been Diagnosed as a Psychotic
Suffering from the Narcissistic Personality Disorder
Characterized by Megalomania, Excessive Need for Attention
Superficial and Exploitative Interpersonal Relationships
Lack of Empathy, and Self-delusion
This Condition Explains His Dictatorial Nature and Acts
While He Attempt to Put on a "Nice Guy" Front
For Public Consumption

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

As I read about the December 23, 2021, Christmas party at Newvatican, at which Francis-Bergoglio, spent almost an hour savagely berating his Newcardinals and other clergy employees in his Newcuria, I wondered: Why it is that that all too many clueless Newchurchers have a high opinion of this Newpope, in spite of the fact that he is a self-admitted Marxist and a paedophile facilitator?


Part of the explanation is that Bergoglio is a psychotic, having Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD), augmented by paranoia. This psychiatric disorder describes Bergoglio to a T. Such patients are difficult to treat and are often associated with other psychiatric disorders, such as paranoia, which Bergoglio also displays. Narcissism is a personality disorder, in which the patient is characterized by:

  1. megalomania: believing himself more important than other human beings, just as many famous dictators were narcissists, e.g., Hitler, Stalin, Mao Tse-tung (Bergoglio's style is described as dictatorial, often savagely criticizing even his Newcardinals in public and calling his Neocon Newchurchers vile names)
  2. excessive need for attention and admiration (Bergoglio never tires of making himself the center of attention, being the first Newpope to give press conferences, which are typically unprepared and confusing, and turning his daily "private" Newpapal "Messes" into public political screeds for press coverage)
  3. superficial and exploitative interpersonal relationships (Bergoglio is known to have very few (if any) real friends in Newchurch; most just go along with him because they would lose their jobs otherwise)
  4. lack of empathy (Bergoglio has no sympathy for the child victims of his paedophile officials, refusing to fire them when their guilt is beyond doubt, e.g., his notorious fundraiser, Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick)
  5. self-delusion: in which the Narcissist considers himself a "nice person," creating for himself a fantasy in which he is such an incredible people that he is entitled to anything he wants and is entitled to remove anyone in his way (Bergoglio will not fire paedophile clergy, but he readily fires those who do not idolize him and follow his autocratic programme to the letter, e.g., Newcardinal Peter Turkson, the only African in his Newcuria)

Traditional Catholics, Narcissists, like paranoids, are able to put on a deceptive front, by which they portray themselves as "nice people." Many of their clueless admirers fall for their deception. The same phenomenon is observed when Newchurch pastors are charged with sex crimes against children, and their congregation, describe them as "the best pastor we ever had." Our Lord Jesus Christ was known for quite the opposite attitude, as being "not a respecter of persons"; that is, He did not give respect even to the highest officials of the Church of His time if they were criminals, like the High Priest Caiphas.

On January 5, 2022, a Massachusetts court set a March 2022 date for the trial of the paedophile Newcardinal Theodore McCarrick, of Washington, D.C. Other cases will be charged in other states. In the Massachusetts case McCarrick is charged with sexually assaulting a sixteen-year-old boy at a wedding reception. McCarrick was found by a Vatican court to have sexually assaulted numerous children and young seminarians. over his career of more than sixty years. But the paedophile Newpopes JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio let him get away with the crimes because McCarrick raised large sums of money for the Newpopes.

Civil cases are also pending against McCarrick for sexually assaulting a boy at McCarrick's "hideaway," a beach house in New Jersey and for sexually assaulting a young seminarian in New Jersey. McCarrick was Newbishop and Newarchbishop of Newark, New Jersey, for two decades before he was appointed Newcardinal of Washington, D.C., in 2001, a post that he was forced to vacate in 2018. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic Review.]

Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio only reluctantly dismissed McCarrick, who had been extorting funds, including funds from the Chinese Communist Party, to help keep Bergoglio's Newchurch from falling into bankruptcy. Bergoglio still hasn't commented on his intimate's dastardly crimes against children.

New Dead Sea Scroll Find Confirms Antiquity of the Greek Text of the Old Testament
Over the Corrupted Later Hebrew Version Used by Most Post Vatican II "Translations"

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Greek Old Testament Scroll

In 2021 More Fragments of the Old Testament
Were Discovered in a Cave near the Western Shore
Of the Dead Sea
These Fragments Are from the Oldest Physical Scroll
Of the Greek Bible Extant
The Greek Versions that Have Come down to Us
Predate the Hebrew Versions Extant
Which Were Corrupted by the Pharisees
To Counter Belief of Jesus as the Messias
That Was Growing in the First Century A.D.

In 2021 more fragments of the Old Testament were discovered in a cave near the western short of the Dead Sea. Unlike most of the Dead Sea Scrolls, which were written in Hebrew and Aramaic. The new fragments, 24 in number, each measuring a few centimetres across, are in Greek, from the oldest physical scroll of the Greek Bible extant.

Many Catholics are unaware that post Vatican II "translations" of the Old Testament are based on a Hebrew text corrupted by the Jews to undercut the prophecies of the Messias and the New Covenant. Moreover, the Hebrew Old Testament lacks seven of the 46 books because these seven books were never written in Hebrew, only Greek (Judith, Tobit, Wisdom, Ecclesiasticus/Sirach, Baruch, and 1 and 2 Machabees) and included messianic ideas of the Christ and the New Covenant.

In the first century A.D., when Our Lord walked the earth, the political Pharisees, who were leading the Temple at the time, were becoming concerned about preserving Jewish identity, as more and more Jews were converting to Christianity. Therefore, they made a new version of the Hebrew Scriptures omitting certain messianic verses. The Jews rejected the Greek Septuagint, which preserved the original Hebrew version's messianic verses and the seven messianic books. Moreover, it was the Greek Septuagint version that the early Christians used, not the Hebrew version. 300 of the 350 citations from the Old Testament quoted in the New Testament are quoted according to the Septuagint version, not the Hebrew version. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Christianity Today.]

Traditional Catholics, the traditional English version of the Old Testament, from 1610, known as the Douay Version, used at most traditional Catholic churches, chapels, and oratories, is based upon St. Jerome's Latin Vulgate, the official Bible of the Catholic Church. The Vulgate, in turn, is substantially based upon the Greek Septuagint rather than the later corrupted Hebrew version used in post Vatican II "translations." Even the venerable King James Version, of 1611, is substantially based, like the Catholic Douay, upon the Greek Septuagint.

Francis-Bergoglio Once Again Shows Himself an Apostate from the Catholic Faith
As He Embraces the Hatred of the Catholic Latin Language Like the Protestant Heretics of Old

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Pope Pius XII on Latin

The Apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio
Is Going Bonkers because of the Pushback
From His Neocon Newchurchers
Against His "Traditionis Custodes"
He Has Joined the Protestant Revolutionaries
Who Tried to Destroy Catholic Doctrine
By Destroying the True Church's Latin Language
Which Has Carried the Faith to All Corners of the World
And Preserves Intact the Exact Meaning of Catholic Teaching
From the Apostolic Age to the Present Day

The apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio took the opportunity of the great Feast of the Epiphany of Our Lord Jesus Christ to badmouth true Catholics yet again. The hypocrite Newpope talks about charity from one side of his mouth while using vile language to defame those who adhere to Catholic doctrine out of the other side. Apparently, the recent pushback from his Neocon Newchurchers against his anti-traditional decree "Traditionis custodes," must be getting to him, as he wigged out in front of a much-reduced audience in St. Peter's Basilica on January 6, 2022. Bergogliio claimed that the "liturgy" -- by which he meant the fake (invalid) Protestant-Masonic-Pagan rites descending from the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) -- could not be trapped in a "dead language ... encased in a suit of armor." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Reuters News Service.]

Bergoglio is himself dead wrong about the Latin language being "dead," even in Bergoglio's own apostate sect. Millions still read, write, and speak the Latin language, as even a cursory examination of the internet reveals. Without the Latin language there would be no Roman Catholic Church. All of Western theology for 2,000 years is enshrined forever in that immemorial language, the dominant works of St. Augustine, the greatest of all the Doctors of the Church, for example, and of St. Thomas Aquinas, the Universal Doctor of the Church, and of theologians up to the present day. If we didn't have the God-given unique qualities of the Latin language and the works written in it to guide us now, the Roman Catholic Church would be dead.

The Fathers and Doctors of the Church, the popes and the councils, have taught that Providence selected the immemorial Latin language and the Roman Empire to be the disseminator of the Catholic and Apostolic Faith throughout the world. That condition obtained throughout Classical Antiquity, the Holy Roman Empire of Charlesmagne, the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, and the Modern Era, even to the present day. This language has prevented the corruption of true Catholic doctrine in the true Church, which the Newchurch of the New Order with its babble of vulgar tongues has patently lost.

Bergoglio long ago already lost papal authority, together with the other Newpopes of the heretic Newchurch of the New Order, founded in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council, because he has placed himself under so many anathemata (excommunications) decreed at the dogmatic Council of Trent and other dogmatic Councils of the Church, that it would be impossible to cite every one here. However, to take just one example: "Si quis dixerit ... lingua tantum vulgari Missam celebrari debere, anathema sit" [If anyone should say ... that the Mass ought to be celebrated in the vernacular only, let him be excommunicated] (Session XXII, Canon 9). Pope Pius XII surely understood this teaching when he preached:

Latin! A language ancient, but not dead, whose superb echo, even if not heard for centuries in the ruined amphitheaters, the famous forum and the temples of the Caesars, is not silent in Christ's basilicas, where the priest of the Gospel and the heroes of the Martyrs repeat and sing again the psalms and hymns of the first centuries in the re-consecrated language of the Quirites. Now, the language of Rome is principally a sacred language, which is heard in the divine rites, in the theological halls and in the Acts of the Apostolic See, and to which you yourselves often address a sweet greeting to the Queen of Heaven, your Mother, and to our Father Who reigns above.

Traditional Catholics, it is from this Catholic teaching that Pope Pius went on to utter his dire prophesy: "The day the Church abandons her universal Latin tongue is the day before she returns to the catacombs." That prophesy has come true in our time, when the apostate Newpope Bergoglio, who heads not the Catholic Church, but the Protestant-Masonic-Pagen Newchurch of the New Order, just like the Protestant heretics of old, is attempting to stamp out the Latin language and continues to banish the true Catholic Church into the catacombs of courageously-independent churches, chapels, and oratories that will have nothing to do with his apostasy from the Catholic Faith.

In Addition to All His Other Flaws, Francis-Bergoglio Is Exposed as an Animal Hater
Reminiscent of Benedict-Ratzinger's Denial of Sacred Scripture about the Animals at the Manger

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Benedict-Ratzinger & His Cat

In Opposition of the Cruelty of Francis-Bergoglio
Toward True Catholics and even His Own Employees
Benedict-Ratzinger (Above), Who Questioned in His Book
The Presence of Animals at the Manger of the Holy Child
Even though Sacred Scripture Attests to Their Presence
Nevertheless Had a Great Fondness for Cats and Dogs
Pope Leo XII Adopted an Alley Cat, Micetto
Who Was the Pope's Constant Compaion
Even Hiding in His Vesture during Papal Audiences

What is it with these Newpopes?! To use the vernacular, they are constantly exposed as being "all screwed up." Benedict-Ratzinger, who puffs himself up as a great theologian, scandalously denied Sacred Scripture in questioning the presence of animals at the manager of the Holy Child. Not only is the praesepium, or manger, by definition a feeding-trough for animals, but the Holy Doctor of the Church, St. Ambrose, as chanted annually at the traditional Hour of Matins of the Nativity, specifically comments on the significance of animals being present at the Holy Birth.

Now, it seems, Francis-Bergoglio disparages dogs and cats, those wonderful creatures of God, so often invoked in Sacred Scripture in praise of the God Who created them. Was this another one of Bergoglio's notoriously uncharitable comments, perhaps directed against his predecessor, Ratzinger, who is known to have a cat to which he is quite devoted?

Pope Leo XII (r. 1823-1829) himself a cat whom he called Micetto, meaning kitty, from the diminutive of the Italian colloquial term "micio," meaning cat. Micetto was a large tabby cat with a colorful coat, an alley cat born in the Vatican, who was adopted Pope Leo XII and became his inseparable companion. Leo XII suffered greatly from the consequences of the French Revolution upon the Church. During these years Micetto never failed to offer the tenderness of his divine Creator to the suffering pontiff. The cat accompanied the pope everywhere, curled up with him during his papal audiences, and hid in the pope's vesture while the pope was holding court. The French ambassador to the papal court, François-René de Chateaubriand, in his Memoirs from Beyond the Grave, writes that the pope considered his cat as having a place near that of "pious souls."

Tradtional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio, who has uttered more than fifty of the most vulgar and disparaging words against true Catholics, might well be kept in check by a cat or dog, who could bring out in the apostate Newpope some reverence toward Goad and His creation, which is conspicuously lacking in the secular political Narcissist and paranoid ego that Bergoglio is. One thing about God's complex and beautiful animal creations is that they force upon us humility. And humility, the quintessential Christian virtue, is exactly what Bergoglio most lacks.

Another Newcathedral Bites the Dust in a Sacrifice to the God Mammon
As the Vatican II Anti-council's Architectural Deconstruction Steamrollers Traditional Churches

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception

Burlington, Vermont's Original
1867 Traditional Cathedral
The Burlington Newbishop Admits
That Newchurch Is Sinking
In Membership and Funds
So He Is "Sacrificing" the 1977 Cathedral
That Replaced It
For a Cool Profit of 8,500,000 USD
Probably to Pay off Paedophile Judgments
The Wrecking Bill Will Destroy the Church
But the Parking Lot Will Be Spared!

In 1867 the Catholics of Burlington, Vermont's largest city, built a beautiful cathedral, which was destroyed by arson in 1972. By that time the heretic Vatican II Anti-council's (1962-1965) influence in deconstructing great church architecture was in full swing. In 1977 a new cathedral was built, which was itself a significant downgrade from the original, beautiful traditional cathedral.

Now even the 1977 cathedral is "too traditional," so in 2018 Newbishop Christopher Coyne ordered its demolition. Coyne admitted that the Newchurch of the New Order was so strapped by dwindling membership and funds that he had to "sacrifice" the sacred edifice. He will make a cool 8,500,000 USD out of the "sacrifice." Although the cathedral will be bashed by the wrecking ball, the parking lot will be spared! It is unknown what the fate of the pipe organ located behind the altar will be. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]

Traditional Catholics, the treasury of sacred architecture represented by traditional churches and cathedrals is being demolished at an ever-increasing pace by the barbaric Newchurch. At the same time the venerable Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris and St. Peter's Archbasilica in Newrome are planned to be turned into some kind of cheap Disneyland for tourists. One could weep when one thinks of the great cultured Catholic popes who for two millennia built Catholic culture around the world in great classical, Romanesque, Gothic, Renaissance, Baroque, Neo-classical, and Neo-gothic architecture, only to be replaced by the cultural sewer being perpetrated by the barbaric Newchurch pseudo-popes like Montini, Wojtyla, Ratzinger, and Bergoglio.

Newchurch Child Protection Presbyter Child-protection Official Is Himself a Child Assailant

Who Has Been Indicted for Sexually Assaulting

What Makes This Case Particularly Reprehensible
Is the Fact that Sprecht Was Newchurch's
Official in Charge of Child Protection
And Judged His Own Case Brought by the Girl
Naturally, His Verdict on Himself Was "Not Guity"!

Quis custodiet custodes ipsos -- the Roman satirist Juvenal's famous verse asking who will guard the guards themselves. In Newchurch, the guardians, from the Third Paedophile Newpope Francis-Bergoglio on down are frequently the criminal perpetrators, judging their own cases and letting themselves off scot free.

On October 29, 2021, presbyter Terry Sprecht. Director of Newchurch's Arlington, Virginia, Office of Child Protection for seven years was indicted for sexually assaulting a child under the age of 13, whose pastor he was. The Newchurch official judged his own case, brought by the assaulted girl. The case highlighted the phoniness of Newchurch's judicial processes that Francis-Bergoglio has deceitfully fabricated to let his clergy sex criminals get off with impunity.

This is the irony of Bergoglio's forked tongue: talk a good game, but do the diabolical. Bergoglio is the greatest practitioner of injustice, the Unholy Hypocrite, who on the one hand claims to be pope, but on the other hand shows himself as a Catholic-hater, Tradition-hater, a Marxist, and an atheist. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Fox News.]

Traditional Catholics, with Bergoglio, Newchurch is just a political game hidden under the guise of a false religious sect, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church. Bergoglio has been a self-admitted Marxist at least since his Novus Ordo seminary days in Argentina, a country known for its Communist connections.


Over 100 Orthodox Clergy Defect from Oecumenical Patriarch to Go Traditional
They Reject the Patriarch's Embracing Francis-Bergoglio and the Oecumenical Heresy of the Vatican II Anti-council

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Francis-Bergoglio & Bartholomew I

Francis-Bergoglio Has Acknowledged
That Many Catholics, both Eastern and Western
Do Not Consider Him a Pope
On November 19, 2014, Bergoglio Bowed
To the Schismatic "Oecumenical" Patriarch
And Was Kissed on the Head Like a Child
By the Eastern Orthodox Patriarch
Who Is Considered by Many
Of His Own People to Be Embracing
The Oecumenical Herersy of Vatican II
Now over 100 Orthodox Clergy
Have Abandoned the Patriarch to Go Traditional
Just as Many Newchurchers
Are Abandoning Bergoglio to Go Traditional

The so-called Oecumenical Patriarch of Alexandria, currently Bartholomew I, though nominally the head of the schismatic Eastern Orthodox Church, has been coming under increasing fire in recent years for his embracing the heretic Newpope Francis-Bergoglio. In fact, as recently reported in these Daily Commentaries, an Orthodox priest, on December 4, 2021, on the first day of Bergoglio's Greek junket, publicly screamed at him: "Pope [sic], you are a heretic." Even Bergoglio has admitted that he is widely regarded as a heretic from the Catholic Faith by both Eastern and Western Catholics.

Bergoglio is, in fact, a heretic, who propagates the Oecumenical heresy of the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) that "we all worship the same gods" and "all religions are true." The incident with the Orthodox priest is just one example of how many of both the Eastern and Western Church are now denouncing Bergoglio and his post Vatican II predecessors for embracing the "Oecumenical" heresy. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Orthodox Times.]

Traditional Catholics, because the Orthodox Oecumenical Patriarch is viewed by many of his own people as falling for Francis-Bergoglio and his heresies, on December 30, 2021, 102 Orthodox clergy abandoned the Oecumenical Patriarch and joined a separate exarchate, just as many Newchurchers are abandoning Bergoglio because the heretic pope he is. The record of each Newpope -- Paul VI-Montini, JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio -- is that each becomes more heretical than his predecessors. That ugly fact is becoming harder and harder to hide, and confirmed statistics show clearly that Newchurch is rapidly sinking, as its congregations dwindle to fewer and fewer and its churches are being shut down right and left.

The Future of the "New Mess" that Is Coming to Newchurches
And It's Not Pretty -- It's Downright Barbaric!

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
New Trash Liturgy

The "New Mess" Has Now Morphed into Barbaric Sewage
As Rendered on Christmas in Chicago, Illinois
And around the World
Without the Unchangeability of the Fully Traditional Latin Mass
Newchurch's "Liturgies" Are Becoming More and More Bizarre
And Newchurchers Who Thought They Wanted the Fake "New Mess"
Are Now Walking out in Droves, Never to Return
Some Newdioceses Are Having to Slam Shut Permanently
As Many as Half Their Churches

God is unchangeable, but Newchurch is constantly changing. That is just one of many reasons you know that Newchurch is not the Catholic Church. If you want to take a look at what the "New Mess" of the apostate Newchurch is morphing into, take a look at what is being done by Francis-Bergoglio's intimate, Newcardinal Blase Cupich, in the Newarchdiocese of Chicago, Illinois.. The "New Liturgy," now under the control of local Newbishops and simulated in a cacophony of vulgar tongues from made-up texts and actions that differ from Newdiocese to Newdiocese, is turning into an even more blasphemous, sacrilegious, and idolatrous fake than it has been.

The Christmas "liturgy" featured "jazz" vulgarity, dancers around the "eucharistic" dinner table, and crude lighting effects similar to those planned for Notre Dame Cathedral and St. Peter's Archbasilica. The "New Liturgy" is crossing over from worship -- if that is what it ever was -- to barbaric entertainment for the vulgar. Large chunks of the Mess were simply left out. "Readings" consisted of screeds on purported racism, gun violence, and "social justice." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]

Traditional Catholics, the handwriting on the wall for Newchurch is clear. The destruction of anything Catholic in the Newchurch of the New Order is by design that goes back to the early twentieth century. It got its first real boost under the Arch-heretic of the New Order, the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, starting in 1951, continued in 1962 with the New Latin M3ss, which continued the destruction of the Traditional Latin Mass, blossomed into the fake (invalid) Protestantized Mess of 1969, and has now developed into a sewer of thoroughly-barbaric trash. Yet the Neocon Newchurchers keep going, albeit grumbling along the way. If they were Catholic, they would have been so scandalized that they would have left Newchurch long ago. Thus, their pusillanimous protestations are as worthless and hypocritical now as the Newchurch against which they grumble.

A Reader Asks: "Does the Obligation to Abstain from Fleshmeat Every Friday
Still Bind under Pain of Mortal Sin as the Second Precept of the Church?"

From: Terrance
Christ Crucified

This Is the Graphic Reason for the Friday Abstinence
Which Has Been an Obligatory Penance for Catholics
Since the Apostolic Age
Binding under Pain of Mortal Sin
As the Second Precept of the Church
If Christ Suffered the Unspeakable Agony
Of Crucifixion to Redeem Us from Our Sins
What True Catholic Would Refuse
The Trivial Penance that the Friday Abstinence
Imposes upon Our Lord's Followers?

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

I was taught that Catholics are obligated under pain of Mortal Sin to abstain from fleshmeat every Friday of the year. But I was recently told by some Newchurchers that they are not obligated under pain of Mortal Sin to abstain on Fridays because the Newvatican deemed it not necessary anymore. Yet I was told by others that the Newvatican did have the power to change Catholic practices. Now I'm confused. Could you please discuss the obligation of the Friday abstinence?


Your original instinct was correct. The obligation to abstain from fleshmeat on all Fridays of the year as an act of penance in remembrance of Christ's suffering on the Cross for us on Good Friday has its origins as early as the Apostolic Age. This obligation is known as the Second Precept of the Church.

The Newvatican to which you refer is not the Catholic Church, but the Newchurch of the New Order, which was founded in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council to replace the Catholic Church and replace it with a New Age, Modernist sect, which is Protestant (or worse). It rejects Catholic teaching and has no more "authority" than the Methodist or Baptist sect.

On questions of abstinence and fast, you should consult the TRADITIO Network's Traditional Liturgical Calendar department. For each day of the year, this calendar includes information on which are the days of abstinence and fast. Also in that department you will find a reference to the printed Roman Catholic Calendar. Every Traditional Catholic should have a copy of this calendar, especially for its excellent explanation of what abstinence and fast are and the days on which they are to be observed.

Newchurch Corruption Spreads to "Indult" Societies
Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) Pastor up on Charges of Distributing Child Pornography

Fraternity of St. Peter

The Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP)
Which Poses as a "Traditionalist" Society
Actually Has Become More and More Chummy
With the Heretical Newchurch of the New Order
And Its Paeophiliac Newpopes
And Operates at Their Newparishes
Any Association with the Apostate Newchurch
Spreads the Heresy and Corruption of that Sect
Like a Virus

On December 21, 2021, Fr. James Jackson, a pastor of the "indult" Fraternity of St. Peter at St. Mary's Church in Providence, Rhode Island, and previously at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church in Littleton, Colorado, was indicted in U.S. Federal Court on charges of distributing and possessing child pornography. Jackson has been mute about the charges since being arrested on October 30, 2021, by the Rhode Island state computer crimes task force.

Police had executed a search warrant and found "large amounts of child sex abuse material" on an external hard drive next to his bedroom. The material included videos of "prepubescent females, including infants and toddler engaged in sexual acts." Jackson is charged with sharing the material via a peer-to-peer network from the FSSP rectory. Jackson is being charged in both state and federal court and faces 21 years in state prison and 40 years in federal prison. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) was recognized by the First Paedophile Newpope, JPII-Woytyla, in 1988, as a panic reaction to Traditional Catholic Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre's consecration of four Traditional Catholic bishops outside the Newchurch of the New Order on June 30, 1998. FSSP clergy have become more and more chummy over the years with Newchurch presbyters and often simulate their New Latin Messes at Newparishes. Now, however, in view of Francis-Bergoglio's decree of July 16, 2021, "Traditionis custodes," reports are that the FSSP and the other "indult" societies, including the Institute of Christ the King (ICR) and the Institute of the Good Shepherd (IBP) will be severely limited and ejected from Newchurch parishes as soon as February 2022. From the perspective of Newchurch's raped, sodomized, and otherwise sexually-assaulted children, the ejection will come only too soon. Any association with the apostate Newchurch of the New Order spreads the heresy and corruption of that sect like a virus.

A Reader Asks: "Is It Correct that the Apostles' Creed Lacks the Expression 'One' God
Whereas the Creed Used at Holy Mass Includes It?"

From: Maria
Symbolum Apostolorum

The Apostles' Creed
Is the Earliest Creed of the Church
Going Back to the Time of the Apostles
It Is the Simplest, Most Direct
And Shortest Creed of the Church
All Catholics Are Expected to Memorize It
As the Consummate Expression
Of What They Believe as Catholics

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

I noticed that at the beginning of the Apostles' Creed (Symbolum Apostolorum) in your file of LATPRAY: Useful Latin Prayers (Orationes Latinae Utiles) in the TRADITIO Network's Library of Files (FAQs and Traditional Apologetics) department, this Creed omits the word "Unum" (I believe in "one" God). At Holy Mass we are used to hearing "Credo in unum Deum." Is this a mistake, or is there actually this difference between the two Creeds?


No, it is not a mistake. The Apostles Creed, the earliest Creed of the Church, going back to the time of the Apostles, does not include the word "unum." It is the simplest, most direct, and shortest Creed of the Church. It is recited together with the Pater Noster and the Ave Maria before the Hour of Matins. You may have heard it recited when you attended the Matins of the Nativity (Christmas) before the reading or chanting of Midnight Mass.

The Creed used at Holy Mass on Sundays and some other days is a different one, the Nicaeo-Constantinopolitan Creed, which is more complex, more theological, and longer. It was composed most particularly against the Arian heresy, which denied the divinity of Christ, a heresy still alive today in the Newchurch of the New Order, which, by implication, rejects the divinity of Christ, considering Him our "brother."

There is also a third major Creed of the Church, the Athanasian Creed, from the time of the great Defender of the Faith, St. Athanasius, which is recited on most Sundays at the Hour of Prime. Because the Athanasian Creed emphasizes the necessity of membership in the Catholic Church for salvation, the heretical Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) did away with the Hour of Prime. Yes, there was far more heresy and corruption introduced in 1962 than the Neocon Newchurchers know of or admit.


The Sinking Newchurch Is Becoming More and More Desperate
It Is Now Moving to Con-anize a "Smiling" Newpope Who Ruled only 33 Days

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

From the Absurd to the Ridiculous:
Is a Smile Now Enough to Make a Man a Newsaint?
JPI-Luciani Lived only 33 Days as Newpope
And Now Francis-Bergoglio Proposes
To Unbeatify Him
A Mere 44 Years after His Death
From Heart Failure or Poison
Had He Lived, Luciani Might Have Surprised
The Modernist Heretics in Newchurch
In 1978 He Had Contacted the Leader
Of the Catholic Traditionalist Movement
To Come to Rome to Sit on a Commission
To Restore the Traditional Latin Mass

Newvatican announced on December 23, 2021, that Newpope Francis-Bergoglio will beatify on September 4, 2022, Albino Luciani, who ruled as JPI, for just 33 days in 1978. Apparently, Luciani's greatest claim to Newsainthood is that he was known as the "Smiling" Newpope! Of course, the apostate Newchurch of the New Order does not have valid canonization. It has "con-anized" Communists and both JPII-Wojtyla and Bergoglio have publicly considered the Arch-heretic Martin Luther for "con-anization" (Newchurch unsainthood being a "con" as a tactic of deceit).

The notion that popes -- the post Vatican II Anti-council men are, of course, not popes, but Newpopes -- are heroically holy contradicts the history and teaching of the Church. In fact, the contrary is true. The teaching of Sacred Scripture is: "To whomsoever much is given, of him much shall be required" (Luke 12:48/DRV). The Church has believed that more popes are in Hell than in Heaven because they have so utterly failed in spite of the whole Church praying for them. Perhaps one-third of the popes were notorious sinners; most of the others failed to meet the requirements of their high office: murderers, fornicators, liars, thieves, and hypocrites. But the leaders of the Church in Our Lord's time were no different.

Newchurch has gone from the ridiculous to the absurd. The Church has traditionally demanded that a long period of time pass before anyone was considered for beatification, let alone canonization. Only after many years pass can the truth about a person be tested and retested. To take an example, the "Nazi" Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger, con-anized JPII-Wojtyla just nine years after his death. Now it is known that Wojtyla ran a sodomy shop in which he encouraged notorious figures, like Newcardinal Bernard Law, of Boston, Massachusetts, in their programme of rape, sodomy, and sexual assault against children.

It was Francis-Bergoglio, the apostate Third Paedophile Newpope, who already con-anized in 2014 John XXIII, who convoked the Vatican II Anti-council, although that pope, dying of stomach cancer, rejected the Modernist direction the Anti-council was taking and, according to those close to him, at the time of his death ordered, "Stop the Council!" Bergoglio also con-anized in the same year the heretic Second Paedophile Newpope, JPII-Wojtyla, who committed over one hundred documented sacrileges and under whom in 2002 Newchurch 's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust broke out into the open and continues unabated to the present day. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]

Traditional Catholics, JPI-Luciani may actually have been better than the other Newpopes. Fr. Gommar DePauw, founder of the Catholic Traditionalist Movement in 1964, stated that he had been approached in 1978 by a representative of Luciani to sit on a commission to restore the Traditional Latin Mass. Unfortunately, Luciani died before the commission could be organized.
