Some people these days seem to be worrying about Francis-Bergoglio's knee. We worry about his head! The apostate Newpope in recent days been going maniacal in changing Newchurch's doctrinal positions to become even more heretical. He is allowing "gay marriages" to go on in his name, and now he is personally supporting "transsexualism," which advocates the mutilation of the body, even of children, and the perversion of the sexes.
On June 22, 2022, Bergoglio received several "trans women" to cement his recognition of LGBTXXX "Pride Month," individually speaking to six men who had mutilated themselves into "women," one of whom imposed the procedure upon her young son. One of the women had written a book, published in February 2022, which detailed her mutilation from Alexander to "Alessia." Bergoglio effused over "her" book, which he had read, and said: "You are a sister to me," refusing to have "her" genuflect, but instead took "her" by the hand and hugged "her." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]
Traditional Catholics, even more and more Newchurchers are recognizing that his man is no pope and that his Newchurch of the New Order is not the Catholic Church. It sure took them long enough! Bergoglio is, as a consequence, lashing out against the pseudo-traditionalists in Newchurch who until now have shamelessly pandered to this apostate, who was never ordained a true priest, was never consecrated as a true bishop, and was never crowned as a true pope. Even Bergoglio himself seems to doubt that he is a pope. He admitted this once to an official of the Neo-SSPX and to the international press on the airplane during one of his Newpapal junkets.
Francis-Bergoglio's bosom buddy is Gustavo Zanchetta, a fellow Argentinean whom he created a Newbishop of Oran as one of the first acts of Bergoglio's Newpapacy in 2013. The problem was that Zanchetta was a paedophile sex criminal -- and Bergoglio knew it. Eventually, the Newclergy of Oran rose up and denounced Zanchetta. Bergoglio then scuttled Zanchetta off to Newrome and hid him safely behind the Aurelian walls. Bergoglio even created a prestigious new position in Newvatican for the criminal with authority over Newvatican's money.
Although Bergoglio let the criminal off, the long arm of the secular law got Zanchetta and imprisoned him in March 2022 for 4.5 years on charges of continuous sex crimes against Newseminarians and pornographic images on his cell phone. But Bergoglio never forgave the honest Newclergy of Oran and on June 23, 2022, dispatched his Inquisitor, actually Zanchetta's own lawyer, to hunt down those who testified at the secular trial in what has been called a "witch hunt." Zanchetta was so perverted that 40 per cent of the Newclergy of Oran testified against him at his trial. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Crux News Service.]
Traditional Catholics, corrupt Francis-Bergoglio has allowed his intimate, Newbishop Zanchetta, now convicted and imprisoned, to remain a presbyter "in good standing" in Newchurch. Why not? Bergoglio may as well be running a brothel within the Newvatican, as he rarely punishes any of his criminal Newbishops and Newcardinals. Such is the nature of the Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church.
Just as reports came out that the Chairman of the German Catholic [Sic] Bishops' Conference had promoted to become District Dean a presbyter whom he knew to be a sex criminal, Francis-Bergoglio's decree "Fidem servare" of February 14, 2022, was being denounced as a mere propaganda ploy. That decree purported to reorganize Newvatican's Dicastery for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith, which has jurisdiction over sex crimes committed by Newchurch clergy. But business is booming even more than before, as Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust continues unabated.
Bergoglio has learned nothing in the decades during which Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust has been a scourge and the cause of the accelerated downfall of the Newchurch of the New Order, founded in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council to replace the traditional Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church. "Fidem servare" makes no change in the attitude of the Newchurch toward routing out its moral sickness, all the way up to the Three Paedophile Newpopes, JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio. Bergoglio himself continues to let off the criminals in his clergy, with not even a slap on the hand.
The "Unsaint" JPII-Wojtyla tried to pull the same prestidigitation when the notorious case of Boston's Newcardinal Bernard Law, of Boston, Massachusetts, came to light in 2002. When Wojtyla refused to get rid of this man who set off the public outcry that exposed rampant paedophile crimes being committed by Newchurch clergy right on up to the top, Wojtyla promoted him to Newrome. Newchurch's Sex and Embezzlement Holocaust thus continued to grow, and under Benedict-Ratzinger it grew again, and under Bergoglio yet again. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
Traditional Catholics, at this point Newchurch is so sick that its Newchurchers are jumping from it like lemmings at an ever-increasing rate. Newchurches are being shut down right and left, auctioned off to pay for the sex crimes of its Newclergy. Newchurchers' contributions to Bergoglio's fraudulent charity, Peter's Pence, are down 56 per cent in just the last year. Attendance at Newchurch's invalid (fake) Messes is down, according to one respected study, to a mere 5 per cent.
Another one of the heresies and false doctrines of Newchurch is that of "Inculturation." This false doctrine essentially teaches that every nation can make up its own Mess. Until the Vatican II Anti-council, the Catholic Church respected the primacy of the Roman See, where St. Peter established his seat in accordance with the four marks of the true Church: "one, holy, catholic, and apostolic." The Roman Catholic Church had essentially one Mass from the early church, the Mass that is today commonly called the Traditional Latin Mass.
Aside from a few smaller Eastern rite groups using Biblical Greek, Syriac, and Coptic, any Catholic could go anywhere in the world and hear Mass in the Catholic Latin language. The dogmatic Council of Trent declared that anyone who advocated using vulgar tongues in the Holy Mass were anathema (excommunicated). As recently as 1962, Pope John XXIII confirmed that immemorial teaching in his superb Apostolic Constitution, "Veterum sapientia." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic World News.]
Traditional Catholics, the apostate Newpopes have introduced a babble of vulgar tongues and pagan rites into their Newchurch "services" (no longer Masses since 1969) catered to individual nations. For example, in 1988, Newchurch approved a special African-style "rite" for the Congo -- one might call it the tom-tom Mess. Francis-Bergoglio has given this travesty his full-throated support. In Bergoglio's own words, this Mess is based on the false doctrine of "Inculturation" to paganism, pushed by the Vatican II Anti-council. It may have started in the African Congo, but there will undoubtedly be others coming to other countries -- maybe your own.
"The House of God." When we use the term to describe the places of sacred public worship that we call churches, we think of something beautiful, as God Himself is All-beautiful. We think of the beauty of the Traditional Latin Mass, not the ugliness of the "New Mess" or the perversion of the "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962. We think of the pure strains of Gregorian chant or Palestrina's polyphony. We think of the icon of Our Mother of Perpetual Help, not the "Twisted Serpent" crucifix used by the apostate Newpopes of Newchurch.
As the New Order sect started to take hold, not merely at the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), but even a decade or two before, Catholic churches began to look unCatholic. These churches were not the venerable Romanesque or Gothic or Baroque structures that reflected Catholic theology, but drab, soulless, "functional plants," like factories, devoid of Catholic spirit. After the Newchurch of the New Order replaced the Catholic Church as the "institutional Church" in 1964, the Newchurches became not just soulless, but monstrosities.
Traditional Catholics, immemorial stone was replaced with cheap concrete and glass. In place of careful old-world craftsmanship, Newchurch substituted austere, spiritless blocks. Catholic symbols were eschewed. The traditional cruciform layout, representing the Cross of Christ, were replaced by shapes that looked more like an amusement park, employed to desanctify Newchurches. Now that attendance at its Messes has sunk well below ten per cent, Newchurch is stuck with these huge, unusable mausolea. No wonder so many of them are now being sold off by Newchurch to become beer halls, restaurants, and condominia -- or used to pay court judgments for Newclergy's sex crimes against children.
Why should it be any surprise that under the apostate Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio, who said that he couldn't judge the Sin of Sodomy, would be the first to allow "gay marriages" to be performed? With the permission of Newcardinal Matteo Zuppi, President of Italy's Bishops' Conference, on June 11, 2022, a presbyter in the presence of five other presbyters performed what was obviously a "gay marriage" in a Newchurch in Bologna in front of the New Order dinner table (formerly known as an "altar").
Naturally, Newvatican will attempt to play dumb. That is all part of the game of "sticking the camel's nose under the tent." It was the same technique that Newchurch used to replace, gradually over a five year period, the Mass with the fake (invalid) Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Mess of 1969 (or over a thirteen year period if you want to start counting with the corruptions beginning in 1956). Already Zuppi is trying to twist the nature of the event, which was caught on video and created a scandal when published in La Nuova Bussola Quotidiana (The New Daily Compass). Zuppi claimed permission from the Newchurch Dicastery for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith.
Meanwhile, in Chicago, Illinois, a Newparish had a "gay couple" preach the "homily" (Newchurch gave up sermons in the 1960s) at Old St. Patrick's Newchurch on June 19, 2022. The men focused on their two adopted children (?). Laymen are not supposed to preach in Newchurch, but Newchurch in reality makes up its "law" as it goes along. The Newcanon Law of 1983 and the Newcatechism of 1992 are treated as a joke in Newchurch. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
And to add a further push to Newchurch's pro-LGBTXXX direction, Bergoglio appointed on June 10, 2022, as the new Newbishop of Phoenix, Arizona, John Dolan, who is known for staging "Gay Messes." Dolan also invited a nationally-known drag queen activist to offer a "homily" and present him with the Drag Queen Network award. Can there be any doubt that Bergoglio and his Newchurch are not the Catholic Church, but merely a passel of apostates, pushing a fake (invalid) Mess, whether the "New Mess" of 1969 or "New Latin Mess" of 1962, and that Bergoglio himself is trying to turn the Newchurch of the New Order into a fraud like the Anglican Church complete with its priestesses, bishopesses, and sodomites?
Traditional Catholics, it should be no surprise that Matteo Zuppi is a known pro-"gay" Newcardinal and is considered to be a leading candidate to succeed Francis-Bergoglio in the apostate Newpapacy of the Newchurch of the New Order. So Newchurchers should now be prepared for an onslaught of sodomite "marriages," even in the pew next to them!
The fact that Newbishop Luc Van Loov, of Ghent, Belgium, was a sex-crime accomplice didn't make any difference to the Third Paedophile Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio, who appointed him to be a Newcardinal anyway at the next Newconsistory in August 27, 2022. Yet Van Loov had at least some morality left, which Bergoglio does not have: The Salesian Van Loov, who left his Newbishopric in 2019 under the cloud of sex crimes against children, "de-cardinalized" himself on June 16, 2022, and refused to be promoted to the perverted red hat of Newchurch.
In 2010, when a parliamentary commission found Van Loov to be complicit in sex crimes against children, he at least admitted that he was "deeply ashamed." His complicity in the cover-up of these crimes was all the worse because St. Don Bosco founded the Salesians particularly to help children. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
Traditional Catholics, ironically Francis-Bergoglio proceeded to appoint Van Loov as a delegate to Newchurch's 2015 "Family Synod" after Newbishop Van Loot had already admitted his complicity in sex crimes against children. Bergoglio doesn't care about children. He has consistently appointed sex criminals as his Newbishops around the world. The qualifications for Newchurch bishop are not morality, but loyalty to Bergoglio's apostasy. The children, for all he cares, can go to Hell.
As Francis-Bergoglio continues his pogrom against his own pseudo-traditionalists, on June 10, 2022, two traditionalist monks who were pushing the "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962 (which is most certainly not the Traditional Latin Mass) were suspended. The traditionalist Benedictine community in Frejus-Toulon, France, of which they were a part and which had been previously approved, has also been dissolved.
After a December 2021 Newpapal Inquisition, which issued a Monitum (Warning) against the monastery because of its pseudo-traditionalist views, the local Newbishop, Dominique Rey, refused to install the two monks, one as a presbyter and one as a Newdeacon. The monastery had run afoul of Francis-Bergoglio's restrictions on the New Latin Mess of 1962 as decreed in his July 16, 2021, "Traditionis custodes," and the local Newbishop was interdicted from performing any installations because he was denounced as being friendly toward pseudo-traditionalists.
The two men, one of whom, Alcuin Reid, was well known in pseudo-traditionalist circles, tried to skirt Bergoglio's decrees by seeking installation outside of France from an anonymous "high-ranking" prelate of Newchurch. (In fact, Newchurch has not ordained priests since 1968, since adopting a Protestantized New Ordinal in place of the Sacrament of Holy Orders) from an anonymous "high-ranking" Newprelate. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency Germany.]
Traditional Catholics, those who try to skirt Newchurch's pogram against pseudo-traditionalist Newchurchers, who, because adhering to the apostate Newchurch of the New Order, are not Catholic, any more than a Lutheran is, will be stomped on, and stomped on hard, by Newchurch. There is no escape from the apostasy within Newchurch. True Catholics must shun Newchurch completely, just as they would shun the Lutheran sect as not Catholic and as bring death to their souls.
The Newchurch archdiocese of St. John's, Newfoundland, no longer has a cathedral. On June 13, 2022, it was auctioned off for 3,000,000 USD. The Newarchdiocese was forced to sell off the historic St. John the Baptist site to pay for the sex crimes of its Congregation of Christian Brothers, which ravaged the children under its care at Mount Cashel Boys' Home Orphanage.
The Christian Brothers perpetrated physical and sexual assaults against 700 wards of their orphanage. When the reports began to surface, Newchurch raced into cover-up mode, as usual. The rampant crimes lead to a Royal Commission being appointed to investigate the matter. When the Commission reported on all the perversions that went on in the Newchurch congregation in Canada, the Christian Brothers were a broken mess, having been prosecuted in Australia, Ireland, the United States, and the United Kingdom as well. Crimes against orphans are among the Four Biblical Sins that Cry out to Heaven for Retribution, the worst sins that can be committed. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Canadian Broadcasting Corporation.]
Traditional Catholics, two dozen more sites owned by the Newarchdiocese are being sold off to pay for the Christian Brothers' sex crimes. Newchurch churches are being sold off right and left around the world to satisfy punitive judgments against perverted Newclergy and their Newbishop leaders. In many Newdioceses areund the world, fewer than half the churches that existed before the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) are still standing, and these with much reduced congregations.
Francis-Bergoglio's is so behind in appointing personnel for his "modernized" Newcuria that Newvatican officials are openly calling his Newpapacy a period of "sede vacante," that is, a period in which there is no Newpope. Bergoglio's complete "reorg" of his Newvatican was originally announced on March 19, 2022.
It seems that Newchurch curial (administrative) operations have essentially been put in suspension. Newcurial prefects don't know what is going on or what to do. Maybe Bergoglio just doesn't want to give up power. The principle of the apostate "Vatican II Church" that he claims to support is to operate "collegially" with local Newbishops. Instead, Bergoglio has issued a raft of personal decrees that arrogate power only to himself. As a result, this Newpope, who suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disease and paranoia seems to have overwhelmed himself into an inability to act at all. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
Traditional Catholics, there have meanwhile been reports that Francis-Bergoglio is planning to change the manner of electing a Newpope in the Newchurch of the New Order, viz., by lowering the vote necessary to elect a Newpope to less than two-thirds. Such an attempt would violate a millennial standard meant ensure a clear consensus. But Bergoglio is not a Catholic pope, and Newchurch is not the Catholic Church -- a fact that is clear to anyone with eyes and ears -- any more than is the heretic pretender Archbishop of Canterbury or the current Grand Rabbi of Israel. If you have no compunctions about destroying the Catholic Mass and the Catholic priesthood, why hesitate at destroying the papacy as well?
We previously reported that Rome had recently been invaded by deadly wild boars, which can weigh 100 kilograms, and gore to death Newchurch clergy and tourists. The invasion follows upon the apostate Newchurch's abandonment of the traditional Rogation Days against wars, earthquakes, fires, and attacks by wild animals. Now the deadly boars have invaded Newvatican itself, on June 17, 2022, having already gotten as far as Hadrian's Tomb, known later as the Castel Sant' Angelo, or Castle of the Holy Angel, above which is positioned a statue of St. Michael the Archangel.
The origin of the Rogation Days goes back to the fifth century, when St. Mamertus, the archbishop of Vienne in France, was faced with many calamities in his diocese. There were wars, earthquakes, fires, and attacks by wild animals. One Easter night, when a serious fire was about to destroy the city, the archbishop began to pray zealously, and the fire was immediately extinguished. The archbishop then instituted the Rogation Days. This practice ultimately spread to the whole Church.
A wild boar was seen wandering down the Via della Conciliazione, Newvatican's main street leading up to St. Peter’s Basilica. The population of wild boars has been dramatically increasing, threatening Newvatican with estimate 23,000 boars in the surrounding area. Recent gorings have occurred just behind St. Peter's Basilica. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Crux News Service.]
Traditional Catholics, the Catholic Church's traditional prayers are there for a purpose. Starting in the 1950s, many such prayers were eliminated, leading in 1969 to the complete abandonment of the Catholic Mass and its substitution by a fake (invalid) Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Mess, which can impart no graces, any more than can a heretic Protestant service and or an infidel Jewish synagogue service. The Newpopes should be aware treating the Omnipotent God with derision, as they do, will not go unpunished in God's justice. Deadly wild animals are the least of Francis-Bergoglio's problems!
Francis-Bergoglio has more problems than his bum knee. He has an ever-increasing manic-paranoid mind that leads one to question whether he isn't suffering from the same apparent dementia from which U.S. President J.R. Biden obviously suffers. For the second time in a week, the target of Bergoglio's non compos mentis syndrome is the pseudo-traditionalists in his pwm Newchurch of the New Order. These are the hypocritical Newchurchers who pander and bend the knee to the apostate Bergoglio as Newpope, while at the same time working behind his back for the banned "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962, which is most certainly not the Traditional Latin Mass.
On June 14, 2022, Bergoglio launched his greatest attack on Newchurch pseudo-traditionalists yet, charging them with "gagging" the "reforms" of the Vatican II anti-council (1962-1965). He particularly singled out the pseudo-traditionalists in the United States. The truth of what Bergoglio is saying, however, is indisputable. The pseudo-traditionalists are in fact hypocrites, pandering to the apostate Newpopes while behind their backs they work against their liturgical "reforms" to turn Newchurch worship into anti-Roman, anti-Latin Protestantism and paganism, or even to the corrupted "1962 Mess," which contains a good dollop of the Anti-council's Oecumenical Heresy ("we all worship the same gods"; "all religions are true").Bergoglio admitted that the number of what he calls "restorationists" is significant. This is the first time that such a statement has been made by a Newpope. Neoconservatives in general have denounced Bergoglio for being an apostate from the Catholic Faith, for promoting "Newchurch divorce," and for accepting the immorality of LGBTXXX. He admitted that the plan of the Newchurch of the New Order is to stamp out the Catholic Faith. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
Traditional Catholics, the Newchurch pseudo-traditionalists must be blind not to see the handwriting on the wall after all this time. They are being forced out Newchurch, as they should be. The pseudo-traditionalists remaining in Newchurch don't have a leg to stand on. They have cast their lot with a sinking ship. Long ago they should have bailed out to an independent Traditional Catholic church, chapel, or oratory. There are no "compromises" or "indults" to come from Newchurch for the pseudos. What pseudo-traditional accommodations have existed are in the process of being shut down. We suspect that shortly even the evanescent temporary Decretum allowing the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), but not the Institute of Christ the King (ICRSS) or the Institute of the Good Shepherd (IBP) and others, to continue will be abolished Maybe that is the reason why Bergoglio never officially published the Decretum.
As Francis-Bergoglio continues his all-out attack against the Vatican II Anti-council's "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962 (which is most certainly not the Traditional Latin Mass), he has now by a Rescriptum ex Audientia of June 15, 2022, banned the erection of any new public religious orders, institutes, or congregations without receiving a "license" from the Dicastery for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life. Such a rescript derives from the personal approval of the Newpope at an audience.
This is the dicastery by which pseudo-traditional organizations like the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) and the Institute of Christ the King (ICRSS) are now controlled. Local Newbishops have been stripped of their prior authorization to approve such organizations. Now Newrome controls completely the erection of such groups.
Although the rescript does not specifically refer to pseudo-traditional organizations, it certainly does apply to them. Such a limitation was already foreshadowed in Bergoglio's July 16, 2021 decree "Traditionis custodes," which virtually eliminates the New Latin Mess, when the decree banned any new "traditionalist" groups. Already Bergoglio's administration has begun even to eliminate some such groups already established. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
Traditional Catholics, the Newcardinal Prefect of the dicastery, Joao Braz de Aviz, a henchman of Bergoglio, has already stated publicly that such "licenses" would only rarely, if ever, be granted. Bergoglio is really on a tear to ensure that "traditionalist" organizations and the Vatican II Anti-council's New Latin Mess of 1962 is wiped out -- as it should be, because it is not the Traditional Latin Mass, but only a New Order corruption of it, simulated by unordained New Order presbyter-ministers of Newchurch, by not Traditional Catholic priests validly ordained in the traditional Catholic Sacrament of Holy Orders.
Ironically, Bergoglio may be unwittingly acting as a divine agent by wiping out the fraud of the New Latin Mess of 1962, the bastard Mess of the apostate Vatican II Anti-council. The fully Traditional Latin Mass is being maintained in tens of thousands of locations around the world by Traditional Catholic priests who operate independently of the apostate Newpope Bergoglio and the Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church.
The troubled Newdiocese of Limburg, Germany, has suffered yet another scandal. Its Newbishop, Georg Batzing, Chairman of the German [New]bishops' Conference, is a noted Leftist/Modernist who advocates LGBTXXX and priestesses. Now his Vicar General, Cathedral dean, and Newseminary rector, presbyter Christof May, who was removed from all his offices on June 9, 2022, because of sex crimes charged, has been found dead by suicide the following day.
The suicidal presbyter left a suicide note that led police, firefighters, and members of the German Red Cross on a merry chase until they found his body in a nearby forest. The body showed no evidence of foul play by others and declared the act a suicide. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
Traditional Catholics, true to Newchurch's seamy moral record, even before the May charges, Newbishop Batzing was already in hot water for promoting to dean of a district a presbyter who had two charges by two women of sex crimes against them. When Bitzing promoted the presbyter, the women went public with their charges and denounced Bitzing. Yet the corrupt Newchurch bishops of Germany elected Bitzing as their head. No wonder Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust will never end.
A report by Newvatican's Chief Auditor, Carmelo Barbagallo, released on June 13, 2022 indicates that the number of suspicious activity reports rose in 2021 from 89 to 104, a 17 per cent increase. 21 of these he has referred to Newvatican's prosecutor. Last year the number was 16, a 30 per cent increase. This is the highest number referred for prosecution in the last five years,
It was not revealed whether any of the referrals involved Francis-Bergoglio himself. The Chief Auditor's responsibility includes crimes of money-laundering and the finance of terrorism run through the Vatican Bank. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
Traditional Catholics, it is clear that in spite of all the propaganda coming from Francis-Bergoglio and his agents, in fact Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust is getting worse rather than better. Newvatican is still rocking from revelations at the ongoing Newvatican trial on the half-billion-dollar embezzlement of Newchurchers' funds donated to charity. The "London Fraud" trial has seen several high-level officials point the finger of guilt at Bergoglio himself as being the mastermind making the decisions.
In Jaen, Spain, presbyter Juan Rubio, an admitted alcoholic, simulated a drunken New Order Mess, purportedly to give first "communion" to children. (Newchurch doesn't have a valid Mass or priests, so it is a fake, not "communion.") The presbyter consumed several glasses of alcohol at the "eucharistic" dinner table (aka Novus Ordo "altar").
The inebriated presbyter was recorded in a video as slurring his words and then emitting a loud eructation in front of the children. When the video was distributed in the area, the presbyter abandoned his Newparish and abandoned the Newchurch as well. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the New York Journal.]
Traditional Catholics, what can one say about the degradation that is Newchurch, from the apostate Newpopes on down to the local presbyters? Simplest is best: Newchurch is most certainly not the Catholic Church.
On June 9, 2022, Francis-Bergoglio told a convocation of presbyters in Newrome to ditch traditional attire and wear "modern fashion." At the same time he told them to be sympathetic to Newchurchers who wanted to sneak out of the New Order Mess to grab a smoke outside. What?! The Newpopes and their Newchurch are now only a game, devoid of a scintilla of not only the Catholic Faith, but any faith at all. This is the paganization of Newchurch that we have been describing all along.
Bergoglio is pushing the anti-Catholic provisions of the Vatican II Anti-council like a red-hot poker up the derriere of his Newchurch. He told the presbyters that he would not tolerate the (apostatizing) "reforms" of the Anti-council. The "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962 has already been virtually suppressed by his July 16, 2022, decree "Traditionis custodes." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
Traditional Catholics, even Francis-Bergoglio had to admit in his address that his Newchurch of the New Order is scrounging for "vocations." Most serious men have been turned away from becoming a New Order presbyter because they now realize that the New Order "prebyterate" is not the Catholic priesthood, and, if they dared to enter a Newseminary, they would likely be victims of sexual assault, as Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust has yet to be corrected. Bergoglio's words are certain to accelerate the "exodus of young people," which Bergoglio admitted in his address.
In 1967, just two years after the end of the Vatican II Anti-council, Newpope Paul VI-Montini came up with the novelty of "lay deacons," who could be married (93 per cent are), to replace priests. This was the first step toward dissolving the Catholic priesthood. The following year, Newchurch adopted an invalid (fake) Protestantized New Ordinal, which no longer "ordained priests to offer the Sacrifice of the Mass for the living and the dead," but instead merely "installed presbyters (ministers) to preside over the assembly of the people." Thus, there are essentially no priests left in Newchurch, except a dwindling few in their nineties.
The novelty of lay deacons in Newchurch has now fallen flat and is a dying institution, just as Newchurch itself is a dying institution. On June 2, 2022, the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops released the dire statistics. In calendar year 2021, 458 new "lay deacons" were "installed. At the same time 512 retired, and 393 died. Thus, almost twice as many left as came in. Moreover, 95 per cent of lay deacons are at least 50 years of age. 36 per cent of those are 70 or older. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic World News.]
Traditional Catholics, the USCCB has exhausted its options. It has no idea how to restore personnel to Newchurch. At this point it seems to have accepted the fact that the apostate Vatican II Anti-council and its bastardized Newchurch are kaput and will shortly drift off into non-existence -- a fitting end to an institution the purpose of whose existence was, like the Roman soldiers before their conversion, to spit in Our Lord's face.
There are many serious things for which to criticize Francis-Bergoglio, but dishonesty is not one. The apostate Newpope has made it clear that he rejects Catholic Tradition and detests the "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962 so beloved of the pseudo-traditional Newchurchers in his Newchurch of the New Order. The New Latin Mess certainly isn't the Traditional Latin Mass and is invalid (fake) because simulated by unordained Newchurch presbyters and Newbishops, but that doesn't stop the clueless pseudo-traditionalists. So In his decree of July 16, 2021, "Traditionis custodes," Bergoglio essentially suppressed the New Latin Mess altogether.
A few Newbishops have tried to sidestep the decree, but Bergoglio has shown in no uncertain terms that such sidestepping will not be tolerated. On June 2, 2022, Bergoglio interdicted Newbishop Dominique Rey, of Frejus-Toulon, France, from installing (Newchurch no longer ordains valid priests, since 1968 merely installs invalid presbyters like Protestant ministers). Rey was the one Newbishop in France who still encouraged the New Latin Mess in his Newdiocese.
Traditional Catholics, Newbishop Rey was supposed to install six Newdeacons and four presbyters on June 26, 2022. Even though the installations were planned in advance, and, people had made travel reservations, Bergoglio thundered "Prohibeatur," and the installations were quashed. The pseudo-tradtionalists are now screaming like pigs with their anti-social media petitions, but they have only themselves to blame. Their appeals have fallen on Bergoglio's deaf ears. Bergoglio told them exactly what the rules the Newchurch game are, and they decided to remain instead of doing the right thing and literally "getting the Hell out" of the apostate Newchurch of the New Order. When you play with the Devil, you deserve everything you get!
Recent appointments and the coming Newconsistory have stirred up "Abdication Fever" here in Newrome. I predict that Francis-Bergoglio will replace Newcardinals Luis Ladaria Ferrer (Prefect of New Order Doctrine) and Marc Ouellet (Prefect of Newbishops) before August 2022, as being "too conservative." I also wonder if we shall see the publication of the fourth edition of New Mess, a new Newcode of Canon Law, and a new Newcatechism. Bergoglio is obviously Hell bent to finish his nefarious work, in however long or short the time may be. Newcardinals Luis Tagle and Matteo Zuppi are both poised to take over as current papabili, or perhaps the empty chair will pass to crazed Leftist Newcardinal Reinhard Marx.
Newcardinal Ferrer, the previous deputy to Newcardinal Muller, is 78 years old. He will have completed his five-year term as Newprefect for New Order Doctrine on July 1. He's Benedict-Ratzinger's man, not Bergoglio's, and he is ripe for the plucking. Any new Newprefect for New Order Doctrine will stay in place for the first five years or more in the next Newpontificate.
Newcardinal Marc Ouellet turns 78 on June 8 and has been Newprefect of Newbishops for twelve years now. So he's overripe for the plucking. He is also a Ratzingerian Neo-conservative. Bergoglio will not want to leave him in place. Bergoglio wants Newchurch to be pagan, whereas Ouellet and Ladaria Ferrer are Liberal Protestants. Newcardinal Sandri is still around as Newprefect of the Oriental Newchurches, where he's been trying to ruin the Eastern Newchurch liturgy. He's not even a Ratzingerian, but was in the inner circle of JPII-Wojtyla. He's 78. He might go also.
It matters little. All the other curial Newprefects are Bergoglians anyway. We've recently seen new appointments in France for Paris and Marseilles, and the naming of sixteen new Newcardinals. Soon, Bergoglio and Ratzinger can form their own little club of ex-Newpopes. They could take their tea in the Newvatican gardens to reminisce about times past, when they ruled the roost and controlled a Newchurch empire now sure decline farther in the next Newpontificate, owing to their apostate policies. We can call this the late summer of the fallen Newchurch Empire.
The ongoing embezzlement trial at Newvatican is revealing to the world just how corrupt the Newchurch of the New Order is. Already Francis-Bergoglio has been implicated as the mastermind in a 400,000,000 USD fraud, in which charitable funds from Newchurchers' charitable donations were embezzled to buy London real estate to give kickbacks to highly-placed Newvatican officials. The June 6, 2022, session of the trial revealed that the Bergoglio regime has also been extorting funds from monasteries, particularly pseudo-traditionalist monasteries, to buy luxury real estate and garner kickbacks for Bergoglio's officials.
After a Newpapal inquisition, Bergoglio on July 11, 2013, banned the Newfranciscan Friars of the Immaculate from simulating the "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962, on the grounds that the Friars were "too traditional." All the Franciscan friars were ordered to use the invalid (fake) Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Mess of 1969 instead. In the process, Bergoglio's representatives extorted 30,000,000 USD from the Newfranciscans, which an Italian court had already ordered returned to its original lay donors because the Friars' monasteries were being shuttered. The money, which had been donated for charitable purposes, was embezzled into luxury real-estate properties as a way of laundering the money, from which Bergoglio's officials profited.

Traditional Catholics, yet another example of many is the case of the contemplative Poor Clares of Lourdes. The Poor Clares were extorted into selling off their religious buildings and the money embezzled, without their knowledge or consent, into the coffers of the local Newdiocese. Embezzlement has been the hallmark of Francis-Bergoglio's regime, and the ongoing trial is proving that he personally was directing the embezzlement. The world is now beginning to see just how morally perverted Bergoglio and his Newchurch officials are and what crimes they have been perpetrating over the last nine years of his regime.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Is there a rubric for when the Asperges (sprinkling of the congregation) is done? For instance, is it to be done only before High Mass or every Sunday? Secondly, I was taught to genuflect and bless myself as the priest sprinkles the Holy Water. Is this practice correct?
THE TRADITIO FATHERS REPLY
The Asperges (or Vidi Aquam during Paschaltide) is be done before the principal Mass on Sundays, not at any other Masses on Sundays, nor on holydays or weekdays. This requirement applies whether the Mass is high or low.
It is proper to bow and make the Sign of the Cross when the aspersion is made, whether the priest does the aspersion from within the sanctuary or while passing down the nave of the church.
The Asperges is a penitential rite using the same lustral water that is blessed for the fonts at the entrance of the Church. It is a sacramental, producing Sanctifying Grace according to the disposition of the recipient. Its object is to prepare the people for the celebration of Holy Mass by moving them to sentiments of penance and reverence as they are about to assist at the august sacrifice of our redemption.
The Unholy See's ambassador from the United States couldn't wait to put up an LGBTXXX flag to cover its embassy facade in Newrome. So there it was on June 1, 2022, the first day of "Gay Pride" month. Other countries, like Canada, couldn't wait either. Yet even Newchurch is supposed to be teaching that sodomy is one of the Four Biblical Sins that Cry out to Heaven for Retribution and that LGBTXXX is a "grave depravity" against the Natural Law of God and against the virtue of chastity.
U.S. President Donald Trump ordered LGBTXXX flags removed from all U.S. embassies. The current socialist U.S. president, J.R. Biden, who has been barred from the Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid even in many Newchurches, ordered the blasphemous flags put up again.

Traditional Catholics, there is now a considerable push by Francis-Bergoglio even to recognize "gay marriage" in his Newchurch. Bergoglio has already approved it under another name, "civil unions." When queried about these perversions, Bergogllo famously said: "Who am I to judge?" With that statement many Newchurchers abandoned Bergoglio, interpreting his statement as meaning that he did not believe himself to be a pope.
On June 1, 2022, Francis-Bergoglio continued his pogram against the pseudo-traditionalists left in his Newchurch of the New Order, saying that they are promoting "dead traditions" and are "dangerous," while calling themselves "guardians of tradition." Ironically, the apostate Newpope had tried to appropriate that exact title for himself in his decree "Traditionis custodes" of July 16 , 2022, in which he shut down most of the Half New Order "Extraordinary" New Latin Masses in Newparishes and religious houses around the world.
The apostate Newpope attacked the pseudo-traditionalists in Newchurch as "back-steppers." He also fumed that he would rather go "down" (to Hell?) rather than go "back" (to Tradition). He pontificated that he wanted to create a "new humanism," a code word in the vocabulary of the Argentinean Newpope for Marxist Modernism. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
Traditional Catholics, when will the clueless Newchurch pseudo-traditionalists get the apostate Newpope's clear messasge that they are not wanted in the Newchurch of the New Order and betake themselves to a Traditional Catholic church, chapel, or oratory independent of the Newchurch of the New Order? The apostate Newchurch is most certainly not the Catholic Church, but was founded on September 21, 1964, at the Vatican II Anti-council to take it over with a fake "religion" preaching a Marxist-Masonic Novus Ordo Seclorum (New World Order).
With its invalid (fake) New Mess and Calendar, the Newchurch of the New Order -- which is most certainly not the Catholic Church -- abolished, along with so many other Catholic and Apostolic practices, the Rogation Days, the three days of special prayer before the Feast of the Ascension of Our Lord Jesus Christ (Ascension Thursday). These days are included in the calendar of the Traditional Latin Mass as special days of prayer to prepare for the great Feast of the Ascension, particularly against wars, earthquakes, fires, and attacks by wild animals. The word "rogation" comes from the Latin rogare, meaning "to beseech." They originated even before Pope St. Gregory the Great (ca. 600).
As if by an irony of Providence, attacks by wild boars have been wreaking havoc in Rome under the era of the Newpopes. The boars also carry the African swine flu and could impact Rome's food supply. Their population in Rome has been estimated to have increased to 20,000. Attacks on humans occur every year, and goring by a bore can be deadly. No wonder the Church has prayed against such attacks for 1,500 years. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by CNN.]
Traditional Catholics, Newchurch has deprived Newchurchers of many traditional protections of prayer. The Rogation litanies are silent in Newchurches, Newchurchers no longer pray the traditional prayer to St. Michael "contra nequitiam et insidias diaboli" (against the malice and snares of the Devil) required after most Traditional Latin Masses, the traditional seasonal Collects to implore the intercession of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the Saints have been eliminated. Providence has deprived the Newchurch of the power of God's graces, of a valid Mass, and of valid Sacraments. The whole apostate edifice of Newchurch has been crumbling since its foundation in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council, and that dissolution has been markedly accelerating in the 21st century.
Newcardinal Blase Cupich, of Chicago, Illinois, was not the only Modernist heretic parachuted by Francis-Bergoglio into Newchurch's Dicastery for New Order "Divine Worship." Bergoglio also appointed more Newcardinals-to-Be who hate everything traditional. These include Newcardinals Kevin Farrell (USA), Mario Grech (Malta), and Christobal Lopez Romero (Morocco) as well.
Bergoglio also appointed to this liturgical dicastery one of the most notorious Modernist/Leftists in all of Canada, the Canadian parallel to the Newcardinal-to-be, Robert McElroy, of San Diego, California: I mean Newcishop David Crosby, of Hamilton, Ontario. Crosby has favored the proposal that Newchurch schools in his Newdiocese fly the rainbow LGBTXXX flag. He silenced those of his presbyters who spoke out against this blasphemy, and he even removed from the New Order "ministry" one presbyter who did so.
These appointments obviously herald Bergoglio's threat entirely to ban even the Half New Order "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962 Mass in Newchurch and replace it everywhere with the fake (invalid) Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Latin Mess of 1970. A few presbyters just might be allowed to simulate the fake New Order Mass in Latin, only where the local Newbishop explicitly permits this fraud. Bergoglio and Roche more than implied this plan on May 9, 2022. Bergoglio wants everyone in Newchurch to be using the same Modernist New Order Missal and the same Modernist New Order calendar. And Roche indicated that there would be a transition period, no doubt so as to phase out even the 1962 Mess. There is no talk about allowing the Traditional Latin Mass in Newchurch. In any case, Newchurch has not ordained any priests since 1968, so there is no one there to say it, including Bergoglio himself!
Newchurch pseudo-traditionalists who now go to the 1962 Mess, invalidly simulated by Newchurch presbyter-ministers, are long overdue to pack their bags and betake themselves to a fully Traditional Latin Mass (1950) offered by an independent Traditional Catholic priest. The blade has descended, and the pseudo-traditionalists' heads are in the guillotine!
On June 1, 2022, Francis-Bergoglio appointed his bosom buddy, Leftist Newcardinal Blase Cupich, of Chicago, Illinois, to become a Newprelatial member of the ruling body on the New Order "divine worship" for the entire Newchurch of the New Order. Cupich had immediately shut down the "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962 in his Newarchdiocese, as Bergoglio had decreed in his 2021 "Traditionis custodes." Cupich joins on the dicastery Newarchbishop Augustine Di Noia, a long-time foe of Newchurch pseudo-traditionalists. Upon Bergoglio's issues of the suppression decree, Di Noia immediately badmouthed Newchurch pseudo-traditionalists.
Cupich has also supported Bergoglio's attempts to water down Catholic teaching on abortion. When in 2021 a majority of the Newchurch bishops in the United States privately indicated their plan to ban vociferous pro-abortion politicians like U.S. President J.R. Biden and House Speaker N.E. Pelosi from munching the invalid (fake) Novus Ordo cookie and swill the invalid (fake) Novus Ordo Kool-Aid, Cupich turned stool pigeon and ratted on his fellow Newbishops to Bergoglio. As a result, Bergoglio intervened and told the U.S. Newbishops to stay out of moral matters involving politicians. Of course, the Newbishops caved in -- with a sour taste left in their mouths toward both the apostate Bergoglio and the stoolie Cupich.
There is no other way to take this prestigious appointment in any way other than to conclude that Bergoglio wanted send a big slap in the face to the pseudo-traditionalists in the United States who tried to buck the clear decree of the apostate to whom they give lip service as Newpope. Cupich praised Bergoglio's decree to impose the invalid (fake) New Mess of 1969 upon the entire Newchurch and moved immediately to suppress any other form in Chicago. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
Traditional Catholics, the handwriting on the wall showing the clueless pseudo-traditionalists' inevitable death in the apostate Newchurch of the Order could not be clearer. They need to run to the nearest exit to get out of Newchurch and associate themselves with one of the tens of thousands of truly Traditional Catholic churches, chapels, or oratories around the world.
This story will undoubtedly be repeated many times, now that Francis-Bergoglio has essentially banned the Half New Order "Extraordinary" New Latin Mess of 1962 from Newchurch parishes by his decree "Traditionis custodes" of July 16, 2021. There are a number of candidates in the pipelines who want to celebrate exclusively the 1962 Mess and to be installed as presbyters in Newchurch for that purpose. We say "installed" rather than "ordained" because in fact Newchurch has not ordained any priests since 1968 when it adopted the invalid (fake) Protestantized New Ordinal.
By this time there are virtually no valid bishops left in Newchurch to ordain anyone to the true Catholic priesthood, no matter what rite they use, as they themselves have never been ordained as valid priests or consecrated as valid bishops. (Curiously, this fact pertains to Bergoglio himself.) They are no more priests and bishops than their Lutheran or Episcopalian counterparts are. Of course, they could approach for ordination any number of Traditional Catholic bishops operating independently of the Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church, but for some unexplainable reason they do not.
In April 2022 a pseudo-traditionalist Newchurch monk in souteastern France got tired of Bergoglio's mixed messages, hightailed himself to Newrome without the permission of his local Newbishop, and approached an anonymous Newbishop, described as a "senior [New]prelate, to install him for the evanescent 1962 Mess in what is described as a "clandestine" installation. "Dom" Alcuin, aka Scott Reid, is associated with a monastic community in the south of France. He is no "traditionalist," but advocated the so-called "reform of the reform," referring to a movement, now virtually dead, to make the fake (invalid) Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Order Mess more acceptable by making it just a little more conservative. Even Josef Ratzinger played around with this notion, but gave it up when he became Newpope in 2004 and appropriated the moniker "Benedict." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by The Tablet.]
Traditional Catholics, if "Dom" Alcuin thought that this end-run would allow him to function in Newchurch, he was sorely mistaken. Newchurch hurled its thunderbolt and suspended him from operating as a presbyter in Newchurch. He has probably been thrown out of the Newchurch monastery as well. Thus to all who try to deal with the apostate Newchurch. It won't work. If "Dom" Alcuin were as smart as he is described to be, he would immediately get out of the apostate Newchurch of the New Order and associate himself with one of the tens of thousands of Traditional Catholic churches, chapels, or oratories around the world.
On May 29, 2022, Francis-Bergoglio announced that Newarchbishop Arthur Roche, the newish Newprefect for the Novus Ordo Liturgy and Sacraments, has been included among those Newprelates who will be elevated to the Newcollege of Newcardinals. As all Newchurch neo-conservatives know, Roche is likely the most resolute and the deadliest enemy of Tradition in Newchurch. He's an elderly revolutionary -- and that's the worst kind! He has recently been involved in forcing down the throats of the Newchurch pseudo-traditionalists Bergoglio's 2021 decree "Traditionis custodes," which is in the process of shutting down even the Half New Order "Extraordinary" New Latin Messes around the world.
Bergoglio has nominated sixteen new voting Newcardinals in today's tranche. They will be elevated on August 27, 2022, at the next Newconsistory. As a result of these additions, on that date the New cardinals created by Bergoglio will be at just over 65 per cent. The majority for the election of a pope must be by two-thirds, so the Newcardinals created by Bergoglio will be only two less than the majority necessary to elect a Newpope.
In these circumstances, it would take a real miracle for this Newcollege to elect a Neocon Newpope who might return Newchurch from paganism to Protestantism. But, then, the apostate Newchurch isn't even the Catholic Church, so arguably has no authority to elect any valid pope, any more than the General Synod of the Lutheran church does. These days, the Lutherans would be more likely to nominate a half-way orthodox pope than the pagan Newchurch would!
I note that Bergoglio once again elevated New prelates from non-Catholic countries and underpopulated places, including the Newprefect Apostolic for Mongolia. Why not? He's relatively close to the Dalai Lama, who might help introduce some more pagan idols into Newchurch.
Perhaps Bergoglio's most curious nomination among the sixteen is that of Newbishop Robert McElroy. He is not even a Newarchbishop and comes from a relatively insignificant Newdiocese, that of San Diego, California. Nearby is the second largest Newarchdiocese is the United States, Los Angeles, California, headed by the President of the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] Bishops, Jose Gomez. Why didn't Bergoglio elevate Gomez to the Newcardinalate? Moreover, Gomez comes from Bergogllo's preferred Hispanic race, whereas McElroy is of Irish extraction.
The answer is simple. Gomez is an outspoken opponent of abortion and of politicians, like U.S. President J.R. Biden and House Speaker N.E. Pelosi, whereas McIlroy is of the Bergoglian persuasion, soft on abortion and easy on heretic politicians. McElroy strongly believes that heretic politicians should be given the fake (invalid) Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid. By nominating McElroy, Bergoglio also shafts San Francisco, California's Newarchbishop Salvatore Cordileone, a Neocon, because McElroy served as Cordileone's auxiliary Newbishop. Thus, Bergoglio kills two birds with one stone of his apostasy.
Many Newchurchers now beginning to figure out what they are missing and yearn for the Traditional Catholic Church back, but they still cluelessly continue to sell out to the New Order apostasy. There are alternatives available in the many Traditional Catholic churches, chapels, and oratories independent from Newchurch, but they do not avail themselves of these. (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.)
Some of the practices listed by Newchurchers as Catholic practices they want to return to are the following. However, as long as they remain in the apostate Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church, they will forever be bereft.:
