Is Francis-Bergoglio thinking of resorting to murder to eliminate Newcardinal Angelo Becciu, whom he has be trying to make the scapegoat for his own 350,000,000 USD embezzlement in the 2014 London Real Estate Scam? In that scam Newchurchers' charitable donations were lost. Bergoglio has been fingered by several witnesses under oath in the ongoing Newvatican trial as the mastermind of the scam, who knew and authorized everything that transpired.
On November 25, 2022, Italy's two largest daily newspapers, La Repubblica and Corriere della Sera, broke the story that Newcardinal Becciu accuses Bergoglio of wanting him dead. "I didn't think we would get to this point, that he would want my death.... I would never have imagined that a man, let alone a [New]pope , would go so far." The information leaked from the ongoing Newvatican trial. A relative of Becciu intimately familiar with the case was reported as declaring: "He [Bergoglio] is bad. He wants your end.... There's something rotten in the [New]vatican." The "he" referred to was identified under the moniker "The Big Guy." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by ANSA National Associated Press Agency - Mediterranean.]
Traditional Catholics, this is not the first time that the shadow of possible murder has hung over Francis-Bergoglio. There are reports that he sent out his secret service to deal with the author of 2017's Il Papa Dittatore, a harsh critic of Bergoglio in the biography. The book was published under a pseudonym, likely because the author feared severe retribution from the "Dictator Pope," Bergoglio, but when it turned out that the author was exposed as one of Britain's most respected historians, H.J.A. Sire, the plan collapsed. There is indeed something rotten in Bergoglio and his Newvatican that rivals the worst popes and antipopes of the past.
Newchurch has not had a Mass since 1969's "New Mess." It hasn't had a priesthood since 1968's "New Ordinal." It hasn't had an altar since 1969, when former altars became merely "dinner tables" to stage the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "eucharist" (no "holy," no capital) meal. So it is no wonder that presbyter Travis Clark thought that the Newparish "dinner table" in Pearl River, Louisiana, was as good a place as any to film pornographic films starring prostitutes that he hired over the internet. With Newchurch attendance dropping like a rock, it seemed like a good side "gig."
Newchurch didn't do much with the "porno" presbyter, but the civil law did. Clark was arrested with his two prostitute accomplices on September 30, 2022, and charged with a felony. The police confiscated numerous sexual "devices," as well as the camera lights and recording devices being used to film the fiasco. The prosecutor had the goods on Clark, so all Clark could do was plead guilty. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
Traditional Catholics, can Newchurch become any more perverted? The "Porno Presbyter" hired a prostitute who called herself "Satanatrix" and admitted on the internet that she intended to "defile a house of God." Little did she know that Newchurches are not houses of God. They are dens of apostasy. already defiled by the Newchurch of the New Order.
With Francis-Bergoglio, Traditional Catholics (pre-Vatican II Anti-council) have no place in the Newchurch of the New Order. Pseudo-traditionalists (those who govel to the Half New Order New Latin Mess of 1962) have no place in Newchurch. Now Francis-Bergoglio has declared that even "conservatives" have no place in Newchurch. Thomas Tobin, the "conservative" Newbishop of Providence, Rhode Island, hasn't even submitted his resignation yet. He has served as Newbishop since 2005 and has at least one more year to go to retirement, but Bergoglio has already appointed Tobin's successor. Clearly, Bergoglio is doing housecleaning of any conservatives or pseudo-traditionalists with a vengeance.
Tobin has been an outspoken critic of Bergoglio's Marxist/Modernism. Like other "conservative" Newchurch bishops such as Athanasius Schneider, Bergoglio wants Tobin out, so he has jumped the gun and appointed Richard Henning on November 23, 2022, to be Auxiliary Newbishop of Providence with right of succession when Tobin is ousted. Tobin said that Bergoglio is going to shove him out the door in the spring of 2023 and make him a "dead duck."
Tobin takes a hard line on traditional teachings. He called on Bergoglio to confront U.S. President J.R. Biden on Biden's strongly pro-abortion and pro-abortion-funding stance, while Biden continues to call himself a "devout Catholic [sic]." Tobin wanted the scandalous Biden to be refused the Novus Ordo cookie and Kool-Aid, but the Marxist/Modernist Bergoglio., but instead, Bergoglio sided with the immoral Biden and said that Biden was a "good Catholic” and should keep munching the Novus Ordo cookie. Tobin in 2009 barred U.S. Representative Patrick Kennedy, another immoral Newchurcher from the Novus Ordo cookie because Kennedy was an advocate for abortion. Tobin opposed efforts to legalize civilly "gay marriage," calling it "immoral." In 2019 Tobin also directed Newchurchers not to attend "Gay Pride" events. He criticized Bergoglio for "creating a mess." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's choice, Richard Henning, is cut from Bergoglio's soiled cloth. He has been Auxiliary Newbishop of Rockville Center, New York, since 2018. He was right in the middle of hundreds of lawsuits against his Newdiocese for its presbyters' sex crimes against children. So bad was the situation in his Newdiocese that it had to file for bankruptcy in 2020. Henning appears to be one of those on the "evangelical" fringe that Bergoglio wants to be the new leaders of the apostate Newchurch.of the New Order.
Francis-Bergoglio is losing credibility fast. Even some Newchurch officials are questioning whether he is really a valid pope. Traditional Catholics, of course, consider him, as well has his predecessors starting with Paul VI-Montini as being sham (invalid) popes, and the Newchurch of the New Order that was founded at the Vatican II Anti-council in 1964 as being a fake Church, most certainly not the Catholic Church. Now the Marxist/Modernist Bergoglio is facing outright challenges to his purported "authority." Even Bergoglio has stated that he knows there are many who do not consider him a real pope. It has sounded on occasion as if Bergoglio himself isn't sure that he is a real pope.
First: The German Newbishops are essentially in schism from Newchurch. The meeting between those sixty Newbishops and Bergoglio in Newvatican on November 17, 2022, saw the Germans refusing to stop their outright schism from Bergoglio. They have separated themselves from his vaunted 2023-2024 "Great Synod on Synodality," which is intended to bring the Newchurch of the New Order into line with the Protestants, replete with deaconesses, priestesses, bigamists, homosexuals, and transsexuals.
Second: Presbyters in Ahiara, Nigeria, have been protesting the man appointed to be Newbishop there. Bergoglio demanded obedience, but the presbyters didn't back down, so Bergoglio was forced to rescind the appointment.
Third: A large number of Eastern Rite presbyters have refused to turn their altars around to face the congregation Novus Ordo style. Bergoglio demanded that they submit to him. They have refused, taken their protests into the streets, and forced Bergoglio's representative to flee for his life down the back stairs of his residence. The protesting Easterners have burned Bergoglio's Newbishops in effigy and attacked their residences.
Fourth: Bergoglio's financial corruptions and embezzlements have led to members of the Newroman Curia to defy his orders in the financial sphere. Bergoglio's own Chief Auditor has publicly stated that Bergoglio has brought Newchurch to near bankruptcy. The financial arm of the European Union is investigating the Newvatican Bank for money-laundering.
Traditional Catholics, it is said that Bergoglio's dictatorial style -- which has led to his being derisively called "Il Papa Dittatore" -- has become so maniacal that his regime has essentially come to a grinding halt. His last gasp will be the Great Synod, but there has been so much hostility expressed to what has become known as "Vatican III" that it may not even happen, or dissolve into chaos.
We know that Newchurch bishops are fake. They are no more bishops than Lutheran bishops or Episcopalian bishops. In 1968, the Newchurch of the New Order broke from the Apostolic Succession and adopted a Protestantized New Ordinal that does not "consecrate" bishops, but merely installs "overseers" to administer local Newchurch dioceses.
Howard Hubbard, as Newbishop of Albany, New York, has been at the center of a paedophile scandal, in which his own secretary turned over the evidence on him. Hubbard is facing civil and ecclesiastical punishment for sexually assaulting children and has admitted to reassigning paedophile presbyters to cover up their crimes, and to covering up those crimes from civil law-enforcement authorities. One victim was a teenage boy. Hubbard had already been charged with assaulting another child on a Newparish bus.
On November 18, 2022, Hubbard tried to get the drop on his punishment -- if Francis-Bergoglio even bothers -- by requesting Bergoglio to become a Newchurch layman. He doesn't care about the children whom he sexually assaulted. He wants to become a Newchurch layman so that he can immediately marry, and the woman on whom the "dirty old man" has his eyes is said to be "decades younger" than he is. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
Traditional Catholics, it shows the endemic corruption in Newchurch that Hubbard's successor as Newbishop, Edward Scharfenberger, issued a statement "offering our prayers and hopes for [Hubbard's] happiness and well-being." Scharfenberger made no references to the "happiness and well-being" of the children whose lives Hubbard has destroyed personally and by his cover-ups of criminal paedophile presbyters. Any notion that Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, first exposed in 2002, is over is nonsense. Paedophilia is endemic now as an incurable virus in Newchurch -- which is most certainly not the Catholic Church -- starting from the Newpope, through the Newcardinals, through the Newbishops, down to the presbyters.
As of November 19, 2022, the Knights of Malta known for their courage and charitable works in during Holy Crusades are virtually no more. The apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio has essentially dissolved the order in contravention of international law. What is worse, the Knights didn't even fight back. They willingly offered their necks to the slaughter.
The Knights' chancellor, Riccardo Paternò di Montecupo, a stooge appointed by Bergoglio, has signed on the dotted line to a new, Modernist charter dictated by Bergoglio, who has decreed that the virtual dissolution is permanent. There will be no Newchurch "dialogue" for the traditionalist-leaning group, which is the latest victim of Bergoglio's fury against anything that was once traditionally Catholic.
The Knights of the Holy Crusades would have stood against an imposter and heretic, but not the modern Knights. Nary a whimper emanated from them. They could have, in St. Paul's phrase, stood up to the apostate Bergoglio to his face, as St. Paul stood against St. Peter and defeated his heretical teaching and practice. As a sovereign entity under international law, the 900-year-old Knights could have brought a case against Bergoglio with the United Nations and the World Court of Justice. But they did no such thing, even though they had the power, money, and staff to do so.
With Bergoglio's Newchurch toppling into bankruptcy, with Newchurch donations and attendance tanking because of paedophile crimes and embezzlements that Bergoglio himself masterminded, the Knights became a target for Bergoglio's latest theft. One member of the order put it bluntly: "It has grown increasingly difficult to remain as the last vestiges of our noble history and identity are tossed into the dustbin by leaders who are either complicit or too weak to call out the hostile takeover instigated by the most corrupt and heretical pontiff in the history of the Catholic Church." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]
Traditional Catholics, the Knights of Malta was once one of the most traditional of Catholic organizations, even holding to the fully Traditional Latin Mass, not the corrupted 1962 New Latin Mess of the Vatican II Anti-council. Because the Knights were "too traditional and because their charitable funds were too much of a temptation to the avaricious Francis-Bergoglio, so the apostate Newpope had to suppress the Knights, and the Knights were too cowardly to fight back, as they once so courageously fought the Saracens to defend Christianity in the Holy Land.
Marriage "annulments" from the Newchurch of the New Order are completely suspect because the grounds in the New Order are significantly different from the traditional doctrine of Roman Catholicism. Moreover, such "annulments" have been used to produce a scandalous "divorce mill" in the Newchurch sect. Traditionally, there are few cases that truly warrant an annulment, after a detailed investigation of the facts and arguments on both sides.
Even many Traditional Catholics do not understand what an annulment, or (more accurately) declaration of nullity, is. It has nothing to do with what happened after the marriage was entered into. It relates only to an invalidating defect at the time of the marriage that rendered the contact null and void. After all, the marriage contract (exchange of promises) was publicly entered into by the parties implicitly "for better or for worse, for richer or for poorer, in sickness and in health, until death do us part."
Remember the oft-heard warning before the marriage contract is entered into: "If anyone knows why these two should not be joined in Holy Matrimony, let him speak now or forever hold his peace"? The banns, or announcement from the pulpit, of impending marriages, is intended to ferret out any nullifying causes before the marriage is entered into, for example, if one of the parties is already married, if one of the parties is under the age of consent, or if the parties are related to one another in too close a degree by consanguinity (blood relative) or affinity (ties other than those of blood).
In 1930 in the United States, for example, there were 9 declarations of nullity issued by the ecclesiastical court. By 1991, that number had risen to 63,933 -- a whopping increase of over 7,000 per cent! With Newchurch now grossing up to 1,000 USD in payoffs for each case in its fake divorce mill, that could equal a cool 64,000,000 USD for Newchurch's scam operation in the United States alone.
82 per cent of the filings for "Newchurch divorce" are fictitiously granted. Clearly, this is a divorce mill being run by the apostate Newchurch of the New Order, and Newchurch has no respect for marriage. In fact, in his 2015 Encyclical Letter "Amoris Laetitiae" [The Joy of Sex], Newpope Francis-Bergoglio moved toward admitting bigamist Newchurchers to gobble the Novus Ordo cookie.
For all practical purposes, Newchurch "annulments" should be presumed invalid, i.e., null and void, and Traditional Catholics should put the facts before their personal confessor or priest where they are attending the Traditional Latin Mass and follow his judgment. No true Catholic should approach the Newchurch of the New Order for any reason, because it is apostate from the Catholic Faith, any more than they would approach the Lutheran, Methodist, Episcopalian, or other heretical sect and incur the canonical excommunication for formal participation in such heretical sects.
On November 17, 2022, the Italian [New]bishops' Conference officially reported that it had found over 600 substantiated cases of rape, sodomy, and other sexual assaults against children since the year 2001. And this is just the first tranche of such crimes, which were committed primarily by presbyters, but also by Newchurch "religious," and by some lay officials. The Italian [New]bishops' Conference had previously reported 68 cases in the two years of 2020-2021.alone.
These numbers covered the period of the Red China Virus, when contact was greatly reduced, and are expected to climb significantly after 2022. According to estimates by Rete L'Abuso, 1,000,000 victims, mostly children, have been sexually assaulted by Newchurch clergy and officials. Similar reports have been issued by Newchurch in Ireland, Belgium, the Netherlands, Germany, Portugal, and France. France, for example, reported that 330,000 children were raped, sodomized and otherwise sexually assaulted since the Vatican II Anti-council by some 3,000 presbyters and some Newchurch laypeople. Most of those crimes were criminally covered up. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
Traditional Catholics, as the truth continues to come out, Newchurch's continuing Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust turns out to be far worse than anyone imagined. The truth is now undeniable, that the Newchurch of the New Order, which was founded at the Vatican II Anti-council to replace the Catholic Church, went berserk when detached from the true Catholic Church. Moreover, Newpopes Paul VI-Montini, JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio were all participants in a criminal conspiracy to cover up the truth, in order that their money and power would not be compromised. Newchurch, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church, is sick to the core and needs to be totally eradicated, so that the Catholic Church, which remains alive in thousands of churches, chapels, and oratories independent of the Newchurch, can once again rise from the ashes of Newchurch.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
The Protestants seem to be hung up on what they call Bible Study Groups. From what I can tell, those involved know very little about what they are talking about. Their personal opinions are all over the place, and they don't seem anchored in the teaching of the Apostles and the early Fathers and Doctors of the Church, who are our best authorities for interpretation. Should true Catholics participate in these "Bible study groups" or avoid them as a danger to the Faith?
THE TRADITIO FATHERS REPLY.
The Bible was deeply studied by the Fathers and Doctors of the Church, whose writings of interpretation and guidance are highly regarded in the Church, some even at the doctrinal level. The Bible, however, is only one of the sources of Public Revelation (the other being Sacred Tradition), and the Bible itself makes it clear that the people are to be instructed in such matters primarily by those who are ordained to preach the Gospel, that is, priests, not self-appointed laypeople, especially when they are heretics, like the Protestants.
Our Lord frequently states that the faith is to be known primarily by "hearing," that is by preaching, not by private "reading." For Catholics, this hearing ordinarily consists of passages proclaimed at Holy Mass and their explanation in the priest's sermon. In fact, the Acts of the Apostles (chapter 8:28- 31/DRV) in the New Testament, through the episode of St. Philip and the Ethiopian, makes this point very clearly:
Most often Bible study groups are a case of the "blind leading the blind" (Matthew 14:31/DRV). When individual Protestant laymen substituted their own "private interpretation," wrenched from the Tradition of the Church and the wisdom of the Fathers and Doctors of the Church, they fell into creating an heretical sect. The New Order sect, actually a Protestant sect itself and certainly not the Catholic Church, is now doing the same thing. These Bible study groups simply serve as a forum for Modernists to mouth off with their own personal opinions under a false veneer of "authority," in place of the authority of the bimillennial Church and the Fathers and Doctors.
Another great problem with such "private interpretation" is that practically none of the participants comprehend the Sacred Languages in which the Bible is actually written. They rely upon flawed "translations." Actually, the very concept of "translation" is misleading. No language can be accurately "translated" into another; all a "translation" provides is a gist. That is why the Church has viewed "translations" into the vulgar tongues with great caution. Originally, the Protestant sects, and now the New Order sect, have preyed upon the people by "translating out" and manipulating the teachings of Scripture to their own Modernist predilections. Moreover, the so-called "word studies" that the Protestants do are essentially worthless, as they do not involve the actual words of the Bible, but somebody's "translation" of them.
This is not to say that some benefit cannot be derived from a reading of Scripture, which is commendable within the proper context. However, one must always be careful not to engage in "private interpretation" in their ignorance of the Sacred Languages and the elucidation of the Fathers and Doctors.
From the absurd to the ridiculous. Francis-Bergoglio and his apostate Newchurch can't abstain from meat on Friday for the good of their souls in acknowledgment of Christ's sacrifice for them on the Cross on that Good Friday, but it seems that there is a real possibility that the Marxist/Modernist Newpope may ban meat-eathing out of his reverence for the secularist United Nations organization, which has been pushing a political crusade to make everyone in the world vegan. That dietary regime would ban not only fleshmeat but also eggs, dairy products, and even fish.
The United Nations Climate Change Conference, also known as COP27, is taking place November 6- 18, 2022, in Egypt. On the fourth day of the conference, a request was presented to Bergoglio to ban Newchurchers from eating any non-vegetable food and to "excommunicate" those who refuse to do so. Bergoglio already told the European Union Youth Conference in Prague in July 2022 to "take better care of the environment" by eschewing meat. He called meat-eating a "self-destructive trend." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Euronews.]
Traditional Catholics, crazy as it sounds, Francis-Bergoglio just might issue the ban for Newchurchers. He has already declared meat-eating to be part of a “self-destructive trend" that runs counter to the Leftist political "greenie" agenda, to which he has publicly and wilfully attached himself. Where is the apostate Newpope getting his theology? It certainly isn't from Catholicism. He just makes it up as he goes along, as in his self-beloved 2015 Encyclical Letter "Laudato Si'," his pagan screed to Naturalism, condemned by the Catholic Church.
In 1945 Pope Pius XII declared the Blessed Virgin Mary of Guadalupe, with a feastday of December 12, to be the Patroness of The Americas. The Virgin was said to have appeared several times in 1531 in Mexico to Juan Diego, an Aztec convert to Catholicism. At the last apparition, on December 12 of that year, Juan Diego had been asked by the Virgin to gather roses from the locale into his tilma, a kind of Aztec poncho. Later, when Diego showed the roses to the local bishop, it was discovered that the image of the Virgin had been imprinted upon the tilma.
On November 17, 2022, the first photograph ever taken of the original image of the Virgin that appeared on the tilma of Juan Diego in 1531 was displayed to the public. The photograph was taken on May 18, 1923, by photographer Manuel Ramos directly from the tilma without any intervening protective glass. His photograph became the official image of the Virgin of Guadalupe.
On November 14, 1921, a bomb was set off below the tilma displayed in the Old Basilica of Santa Maria de Guadalupe in Mexico City. Although the image on the tilma escaped damage, the frame that enclosed the image was removed and replaced. Thus, the opportunity arose to take the unique photograph. Ramos continued to take historic Church photographs, including those of the 400th Centenary of the Apparition of the Virgin in 1931.

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I have noticed that recently Fellay-Pagliarani's Neo-Society of St. Pius X (NSSPX) is trying to justify the Novus Ordo rite of "ordination" as being valid. My understanding is that Traditional Catholicism holds the New Rite to be invalid, that is, not able to ordain a priest, as the Sacrament was substantially tampered with in the Newchurch of the New Order to make it conform to the Protestants. Is the New Rite of "Ordination" valid or invalid (fake)?
THE TRADITIO FATHERS REPLY
Clearly invalid. The Neo-SSPX adheres to the apostate Newchurch of the New Order, as the NSSPX wants recognition, power, and money from the Newchurch. In this, the Neo-SSPX, founded by Bernie Fellay in 1994 to replace Archbishop Lefebvre's original Traditional Catholic society, has deviated from the Archbishop, who called Newchurch not the Catholic Church, the Eternal Church of Rome, but the "Conciliar Church," the sect fabricated at the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965). The Archbishop rightly broke from Newchurch in 1988 to preserve the Catholic Church as it had existed for two millennia. The Archbishop viewed Newchurch as essentially equivalent to Martin Luther's heretical Protestant sect.
There is no question that in 1968, after the Vatican II Anti-council, a new, Protestantized Ordinal, the rite used to confer Holy Orders, was substituted for the traditional Catholic Ordinal going back to Catholic and Apostolic practice. The New Ordinal, according to its originator, the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini, in his 1000-page tome, La Riforma Liturgica, admitted that the New Ordinal adopted in 1968 for Newchurch was fabricated to "install" (not ordain) "presbyters" (not priests) in the Protestant fashion, so that these ministers might be acceptable to the Protestants heretics, several of whom were serving on Newpope Paul VI-Montini's advisory committee to create an (invalid) "New Liturgy" to replace the Catholic Mass and Sacraments
The substantial flaws in the Neo-SSPX's attempt to justify the new "installation" rite of presbyters for Newchurch has been very competently argued by reputable traditional Catholic theologians. Suffice it to say that the (Novus Ordo) New Ordinal is not Catholic, nor does it ordain (valid) priests. At best, it installs Protestant-like ministers "to preside over the assembly of the people" at the New Order service, not, as the traditional Catholic Ordinal has it: "to offer the Sacrifice of the Mass for the living and the dead."
This report may seem bizarre, but when you think about it, it makes some sense. It is a fact even Newchurch admits that since 1968, after adopting the Protestantized "New" Ordinal after the Vatican II Anti-council, the Newchurch of the New Order, founded in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council to replace the Catholic Church, no longer ordains priests or consecrates bishops. It merely "installs" men (and probably soon women) as ministers, just like the Protestants.
Thus, in the official books of Newchurch now, the traditional term "sacerdos," or priest, coming from the Latin meaning literally a "giver of the sacred," is replaced by "presbyter," coming from the Greek word for "elder," much as the Mormons use it for Mormon clergy. Most Newchurchers are by this point so confused that they still call their ministers "priests," even though there have been no priests ordained or bishops consecrated in the New Order (Novus Ordo) since 1968.
Thus comes this report from the Ghana [New]bishops' Conference that many of their Newchurchers regularly ignore the unordained Newchurch presbyter-ministers, who have no sacramental power, and instead consult witch doctors on various religious matters. On November 10, 2022, the President of the Conference, Newbishop Phillip Naameh, admitted to a plenary session of the Conference that Ghanan Newchurchers are moving away from Newchurch. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Ghana News.]
Traditional Catholics, as Sacred Scripture tells us: "Magna est veritas, et praevalet," Mighty is the Truth, and it prevails (3 Esdras 4:41). God has written his Truth on the heart of man. Thus it is that even pagans can perceive God's Truth, which Newchurchers deny, even though God's Truth is right in front of their eyes: Newchurch has no priests (and that includes the New Latin Mess presbyters). Newchurch presbyters have no sacramental power, as they cannot "give the sacred." They are as powerless sacramentally as Protestant ministers, or Mormon elders.
Before a November 7, 2022, gathering of Newchurch religious, Francis-Bergoglio admitted the fact that vocations -- if one can properly use that term of an apostate sect -- to the Newchurch of the New Order were sinking badly. Yet he refused to take responsibility, either personally or on behalf of Newchurch, but blamed "worldly criticism" and the pseudo-traditionalists (among other "ideologues") in Newchurch, whom he called "diabolical deceivers of polarizations from 'isms'." Bergoglio does indeed face a great problem of "vocations" in his Newchurch sect -- if he even cares --, as his main concern is turning Newchurch into a secular Marxist organization by means of his "Great Synod on Synodality."
A case in point. On October 26, 2022, a report on the state of the Irish Newchurch was published by the Association of Catholic [Sic] Pr[esbyters]. A little more than half a century, there was no country in the world that would be considered more Catholic than Ireland. This new report stated that 40 per cent of the current Newchurch presbyters (ministers) in Ireland are within 15 years of retirement -- or quitting. In fact, 45 have already quit. Fewer than 3 per cent of Irish presbyters are younger than age 40. To replace the 847 retiring presbyters, only 47 Newseminarians are currently studying for -- but have not attained, and may never attain -- the Newchurch presbyterate.
The abandonment of Newchurch is hitting its religious orders as well. The Newchurch Franciscans have announced that they are abandoning their 800-year-old friary in Ireland. The Minister Provincial has indicated that the number of Newfranciscans had been so reduced after the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) that there is no point in keeping the Irish friary open any longer. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by The Tablet.]
Traditional Catholics, triggered by the public exposure of Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust and the revelation that the Newchurch clergy have been raping and sodomizing even blind and deaf children under their care, Ireland now detests Newchurch with a vengeance. It has adopted legal divorce and homosexuality. It even refused to allow Benedict-Ratzinger, the Second Paedophile Newpope, to enter Ireland for a Novus Ordo "eucharistic" (no capital, no "holy") congress because of his deep complicity in the paedophile crimes of Newchurch presbyters, bishops, and cardinals. According to Ireland's Prime Minister, Ireland could no longer promise to protect the Newpope's life if he dared to enter the country. So, the country that once saved Catholicism from the pagans has now become pagan itself, courtesy of the Newchurch of the New Order, founded in 1964 by the Vatican II Anti-council to replace the Catholic Church.
Swiss Newishop Marian Eleganti has added his voice to a small, but growing, number of Newbishops in the Newchurch of the New Order who are condemning Francis-Bergoglio for his 2023-24 "Great Synod on Synodality," which is Vatican III Anti-council hidden under a different name. Eleganti was a Benedictine missionary and abbot of the Abbey of St. Otmarsberg..
Eleganti used harsh words to call Bergoglio a "boundless hypocrite" He exposed Bergoglio's "Great Synod" as merely a rehash of old, worn-out Modernist/Marxist notions pushed for sixty years after the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965): "democracy, participation, involvement in power, women in all offices, diaconate or priesthood for women; revision of sexual morality regarding extramarital sex, remarriage and homosexuality.” Eleganti exposed the anti-Catholic notions as being rebottled with new labels: "Listening, Inclusivity, Welcoming, Diversity, Equality." The same tactic was pulled at the Vatican II Anti-council, when Holy Communion was rebranded as invalid (fake) "eucharist" (no capitalization, no "holy"), sermons were degraded to homilies, and Holy Mass was relegated to "liturgy."
The Modernists, says Eleganti, like to talk about the "holy spirit" (whatever that is in the Newchurch of the New Order) and claim it for themselves. He charges that this usage is "nothing but propaganda, self-deception, and basically an instrumentalization of God." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Kath Net.]
Traditional Catholics, Newbishop Eleganti openly proclaims: "I do not expect anything good from the upcoming Synod. I just don’t trust it anymore. The confusion that the Synods have already instigated since 2014 is unmistakable and makes me pessimistic about the discernment of the spirit at these events.” Having seen how the apostate Vatican II Anti-council virtually destroyed the Church, it would be sheer idiocy to think that an even worse Vatican III would do anything but complete the utter demise of the Newchurch of the New Order.
The clueless pseudo-traditionalists in Newchurch, who have sold out to the Half New Order New Latin Mess of 1962 and continue to support the apostate Newchurch of the New Order and its Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, were forced to come face to face again on November 11, 2022, with the reality that the Newchurch of the New Order is most certainly not the Catholic Church. Its leader, Francis- Bergoglio, again showed his "solidarity" with sodomites. Bergoglio has already devoted part of his Wednesday audiences to receiving "transsexuals," those who have spat in God's face mutilated their bodies in contravention of the Fifth Commandment of God to become what they were not created to be.
While pseudo-traditionalists can't get a single hearing with Bergoglio on his suppression of the New Latin Mess, the Newpope, with full hoopla, received in an extended personal audience of 45 minutes, the homophile presbyter James Martin. so that Martin could push the LGBTXXX agenda upon Newchurch. Bergoglio previously received Martin in 2016. Martin is a member of the Newjesuits, as is Bergoglio himself, the order that at the time of the Vatican II Anti-council turned into supporters of and participants in the murderous Liberation Theology, which has engineered the assassination of conservative Latin American leaders.
It is easy to see Bergoglio's endgame in all of this. Bergoglio is a Modernist/Marxist activist in introducing and encouraging perversion in his Newchurch of the New Order. Like all immoral Modernist heretics, for Bergoglio the end justifies the means. Full speed ahead and damn the moral consequences! This perversion and Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust has almost destroyed Bergoglio's Newchurch of the New Order, which is sinking fast according to all the studies of the decades since the Vatican II Anti-council. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
Traditional Catholics, if Bergoglio looked around, he would see that this immoral perversion has already rent in two the mainline Protestant sects: the Methodists, the Lutherans, the Presbyterians, the Congregationalists, and most especially the Anglican/Episcopalians Traditionalist Methodists, Lutherans, Presbyterians, Congregationalists, and Anglican/Episocopalians have said "enough is enough" and left the Modernist versions of their sects to form traditionalist churches, and these churches are outnumbering the Modernist versions of their sects. The traditionalists in the mainline Protestants at least have guts. The pseudo-traditionalists who remain within the immoral and perverted Newchurch are pusillanimous pushovers.
Unknown to many Newchurchers is the fact that in 1972 the Sacrament of Extreme Unction was eliminated from the Newchurch of the Ne Order and replaced by a non-sacramental "Blessing of the Sick." On November 17, 2022, as announced by the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] [New]bishops, Newchurch is extending the fraud of this non-sacrament to be simulated not even by unordained presbyters, but by laypeople. The so-called "death blessing" by laypeople has been simulated underground since at least 2012 and has lately taken hold in Newchurch in the United States and Germany, among many other countries.. Laypeople have already been simulating so-called marriages and funerals.
All of this fakery stems from the apostate Vatican II Anti-council of 1962-1965. Its point is to turn the Newchurch, founded in 1964 at that Anti-council, into a Protestant sect with no clergy. In 1968, Newchurch adopted a Protestantized New Ordinal that no longer ordains priests, but merely "installs" individuals to "preside over the assembly of the people." Thus, in Newchurch there is no priesthood, no Mass, no Communion. [Some of the information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] [New]bishops.]
Traditional Catholics, Newchurchers have being dying now for sixty years without the Last Rites, which include the Sacraments of Holy Communion (as Viaticum), Confession, and Extreme Unction. Nor do they receive the traditional Apostolic Blessing with Plenary Indulgence at the Moment of Death. Newchurch since the late 1960s and early 1970s has been a sacrament-less sect, worse than the mainline Protestant sects, because Newchurch, unlike the mainline Protestant sects in general, does not even have a universally-valid Sacrament of Baptism.
Just as we TRADITIO Fathers predicted, the suit against Ex-Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger for complicity in the cover-up of paedophile sex crimes would not be the last against Newchurch's corrupt popes. On November 10, 2022, Newvatican's Auditor General and Deputy Auditor General filed suit in Newvatican's own court against Francis-Bergoglio for slander, wrongful dismissal, and intentional infliction of bodily harm by withholding needed medical records from physicians. They are demanding damages of some 10,000,000 USD. The auditors were appointed in 2015 by Bergoglio to clean up Newvatican's corrupt finances, but when they did their job and exposed the corruption, Bergoglio fired them.
Chief Auditor Libero Milone charges that he and his Deputy, Ferruccio Panicco, did their job, but they "dug up too much dirt" in Bergoglio's accounts, so Bergoglio "buried them" in 2017 by firing them and framing them, even though Bergoglio admitted that there was no investigation or judgment against them. Milone charges that Bergoglio is now using strong-arm tactics to make them go away, so that Bergoglio's financial corruption is kept secret from Newchurchers and the public at large.
Milone has now had enough of Bergoglio's lies. "All these matters were reported to the [New]pope.... I was doing my job.... I didn’t know that I would find [New]cardinals putting money in their pocket, but I found it. And I told him," Milone stated. Milone charged that Newcardinal dicastery heads were personally keeping gold bullion and coins "off the books." At that point, instead of conducting a purge of the criminal Newcardinals who were operating in his name, Bergoglio fired the Auditors General to cover up the crimes. Milone also charges that Bergoglio deliberately exacerbated his cancer and cut short his life span by confiscating and withholding his medical records from his physicians. Milone has charged that Bergoglio is running a "viper's next" of intrigue, financial malfeasance, and a hypocritical "reign of terror." And Milone is not the only witness who has testified to such things. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by The New York Times.]
Traditional Catholics, Newvatican's Chief Auditor Libero Milone charged that Bergoglio's Newcardinals were embezzling "tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands" of U.S. Dollars from donations to charity by clueless Newchurchers in the pews. He reported these embezzlements directly to Francis-Bergoglio, who, as usual, did nothing about it. Bergoglio has now been exposed as an accomplice in, if not a direct perpetrator of, embezzlement of charitable donations into the pockets of his Newcardinals if not of his own pockets. The irony of this affair is that Bergoglio and his lieutenants are being publicly exposed in open court of these crimes right in Bergoglio's own Newvatican.
On October 8, 2022, Ex-Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger said that he will attempt to present a legal defense in a German civil court, in which he is being sued as an accomplice in the cover-up of sex crimes perpetrated against an 11-year-old boy by a Newchurch presbyter whom Ratzinger, as Newarchbishop of Munich, was responsible for supervising. The German court has already issued a declaratory judgment against Ratzinger in favor of the child victim.
This is the first time that a Newpope has been sued in a civil court, but it will likely not be the last, as all three Paedophile Newpopes, JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio, have all been involved in the cover-up of sex crimes by their presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals reporting to them. The court has the power to command Ratzinger's personal appearance before the court to testify under oath. Newcardinal Friedrich Wetter and another Newchurch official have been similarly accused.
Ratzinger had already been accused of covering up the paedophile sex crimes of four other presbyters in a January 2002 Investigative report on sex crimes perpetrated in the Munich Newdiocese. After that report was issued, Ratzinger confessed to the crimes, which he termed "errors." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Reuters.]
Traditional Catholics, Ex-Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger stands accused of bearing legal responsibility for criminally covering up the crimes against the child victim under the long-standing legal principle, Respondeat superior, requiring the superior of a subordinate to answer for charges against the subordinate, as the superior bears ultimate responsibility. Ratzinger stands accused of knowingly allowing a paedophile presbyter to enter his Munich Newarchdiocese and work in a Newparish there, where the presbyter committed the sex crimes against the child. It is only a matter of time before other child victims find a way to get justice against the three Paedophile Newpopes through the civil courts because the Newchurch courts are completely corrupt.
And on it goes. No abatement of Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, in spite of all the mendacious propaganda coming out of Bergoglio and his Newvatican. Newchurch's paedophile holocaust, which became public and shot across the newswires in January 2002, is far from over. Among Bergoglio's top accomplices in Newchurch's institutionalized sex crimes against children and their cover-up have been the infamous Newcardinals Theodore McCarrick and George Pell.
Implicated in addition to Bergoglio, the Third Paedophile Newpope, were the First Paedophile Newpope, JPII-Wojtyla, whom Bergoglio proclaimed a (fake) Newsaint of Newchurch, and the Second Paedophile Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio, who as Newchurch's Prefect of Doctrine admitted to covering up tens of thousands of crimes against children as young as six months of age, as well as many deaf, blind, and otherwise disabled children.
In the sphere of sex crimes perpetrated against children, the latest paedophile Newbishop exposed is Newcardinal Jean-Pierre Ricard, of Bordeaux, France, who confessed that he had raped a 14-year- old girl. On November 7, 2022, he turned himself over to the French gendarmerie and relinquished his office, not because he wanted to do right, but because French authorities were hot on his tail. Nor is Ricard the only paedophile criminal in France. Eleven other Newbishops are currently being investigated for involvement in sex crimes against children.
A 2021 investigative report by the French Justice Department revealed a “massive phenomenon” of sex criminals operating for decades within the Newchurch of the New Order in France. The report tabulated a whopping 330,000 children sexually assaulted by Newchurch presbyters, Newbishops, and Newcardinals, and even laypeople in official positions associated with Newchurch.
In the sphere of embezzlment of Newchurch charitable funds, of course the most remarkable perpetrator is Bergoglio himself, who has been fingered by numerous top Newchurch officials in the current trial going on in Newvatican, as being the mastermind behind the 350,000,000 USD theft of Newchurchers' donations for the most destitute victims into Bergoglio's own pocket, to shore up his corrupt and bankrupt Newvatican bureaucracy.
The latest embezzler to be fingered is Johannes Bundgens, Newbishop of Aachen, Germany, who was convicted of embezzling 128,000 USD from a woman suffering from dementia. Can the false "Newchurch of Love" get any lower than that? What happened to Bergoglio's oft-vaunted "mercy"? Bundgens at least had the grace to abdicate from his Newbishopric, yet Bergoglio, well known by now for his pussy-footing around with his paedophile Newbishops, waited a full year before accepting the abdication. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
Traditional Catholics, Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust is getting far worse, as it is not just simple presbyters who are involved now, but Francis-Bergoglio's top Newcardinals and Newbishops who are falling like flies. The number of these Newprelates who are committing paedophile crimes and embezzlements usually include several names each and every week now. In fact, there has been an uptick in recent weeks. And Bergoglio continues to do nothing serious about the problem, which is on the way to bringing down his Newchurch -- as by the justice of God it rightly should be.
The Jesuits were always a hapless order. Admittedly, there were some great lights in the early years, like St. Robert Bellarmine (1542-1621), the Jesuit theologian contemporary with the dogmatic Council of Trent, who wrote the pivotal work, De Romano Pontifice, which demonstrated that a heretic pope lost the papacy with his succinct canonic maxim: "Papa hereticus ipso facto depositus est (A heretic pope is automatically deposed).
But soon the Jesuits, a group in general too prideful and ambitious for their own good, began inserting themselves into secular politics and made such a mess of it that Pope Clement XIV issued his famous papal bull, Dominus ac Redemptor, completely abolishing the order. The Jesuits were extinguished for over forty years, a period that included the American Revolution and the War of 1812.
At the time of the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) and thereafter, many (New)jesuits, particularly in Latin America, like the current apostate Newpope of the Newchurch of the New Order, Jorge Bergoglio (aka Francis) himself, embraced Leftist "Liberation Theology," which, among other immoral abominations, preached the murder of conservative heads of state and allied itself with atheistic Communism.
One noted Jesuit of the time, Fr. Malachi Martin (1921-1999), the noted author and Vaticanologist, told Newpope Paul VI-Montini that he wanted out and then proceeded to write a devastating expose of the corrupt order entitled The Jesuits: The Society of Jesus and the Betrayal of the Roman Catholic Church One of its famous passages revealed that "Black" Masses, i.e., Messes worshipping Satan, were being held within the very walls of the Newvatican of the Vatican II Anti-council.
Francis-Bergoglio, a Newjesuit himself, has now placed Modernist/Marxist Newjesuits in many top positions of power in Newchurch. The most important of these is Bergoglio's putative choice for his successor in the Newpapacy, Newcardinal Jean-Claude Hollerich, whom Bergoglio has appointed the head man (relator generalis) of Vatican III, what Bergoglio calls 2023-24's Great Synod on Synodality, through which he hopes to destroy what little remains of Catholicism in Newchurch and around the world. Anti-scriptural novelties like priestesses and non-celibate presbyters (if any men remain in Newchurch), embracing of divorce and remarriage, contraception, sodomy, and the virtual elimination of clergy, like Protestants on steroids.
Hollerich, Newarchbishop of Luxembourg and head of Bergoglio's significant Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, on October 24, 2022, advocated for the Great Synod the recognition of homosexuality as the "fruit of creation" (one has to wonder whether he appreciates the double entendre implicit in that phrase!) and wants to recognize sodomite "affective unions," that is, "gay marriages." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Italian weekly L'Espresso.]
Traditional Catholics, including Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, nine Marxist/Modernist Newjesuits are heading the Newchurch of the New Order. This is a coup for atheistic Marxism and heretical Modernism not seen under the predecessor Newpopes of the apostate Bergoglio. Newchurch is going down the tubes fast. No true Catholic would set foot into any of its temples, dedicated now to paganism, sodomy, Modernism, and atheistic Marxism. It has taken sixty years since the Vatican II Anti-council, but nothing is clear now than the fact that the Newchurch of the New Order is most certainly not the Catholic Church.
The farce of the 2023 Vatican III Anti-council, termed by Francis-Bergoglio the Great Synod on Synodality, is well under way. It is clear that the "Dictator" Newpope Bergoglio is trying to control the conversion of the Newchurch of the New Order into some kind of paganized sect, replete with pagan priestesses, pagan goddesses, pagan morality, and pagan "liturgies."
The Modernist heretics of the Newchurch are using the same ploys that they did in 1962-1965 at the Vatican III Anti-council to pull the wool over the laypeople. One of these ploys is to invoke blasphemously the "Holy Spirit." This entity, whoever or whatever it is not the Spiritus Sanctus, the Holy Ghost, the Third Person of the Most Blessed Trinity. It is some kind of political concoction to dupe the Newchurchers.
On October 27, 2022, Bergoglio's agents in Newvatican rolled out the latest draft for the next phase of the Great Synod. Newcardinal Jean-Claude Hollerich, of the radical Newjesuits like Bergoglio himself, spilled the beans, saying that Catholic theology had been thrown out in favor of "synodality," the meaningless term devised by the devilish Bergoglio. Hollerich said that the new, paganized Newchurch will be "radical."
Traditional Catholics, Newcardinal Hollerich, slavishly adhering to Francis-Bergoglio's 2021 decree "Traditionis custodes," which suppressed even the Half New Order New Latin Mess, lost no time terming the Half New Order New Latin Mess of 1962 (which is most certainly not the Traditional Latin Mass) as a "knot of conflict." It is clear that the Great Synod on Synodality will rip the Newchurch of the New Order into warring factions, leading to its even earlier demise.
As if the Newchurch of the New Order hadn't done enough to destroy the Catholic Mass, now it is going to "modernize" the "readings" from Scripture and issue a New, New English Lectionary to which the miserable Newchurchers will now be subjected. So did the U.S. Conference of Catholic [Sic] [New]bishops announce on November 4, 2022. In 1969 Newchurch replaced the Catholic Mass in its Novus Ordo temples with an invalid (fake) New Mess, which has already been revised three times in the space of just 21 years. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Service.]
The venerable Douay-Rheims Version (1585/1610), which Traditional Catholics continue to use, just as serious Protestants continue to use the King James Version (1611), has already been discarded by Newchurch, in favor a slew of "modern" translations, which are not so much translations as politicized paraphrases. The Douay-Rheims and King James Versions are considered "literal," as they are generally as close to the original languages as is idiomatically possible in English.
Traditional Catholics are fortunate in not having to put up with these numerous corruptions of Sacred Scripture and the true Mass that are constantly being churned out by Newchurch to push Newchurchers into corrupted beliefs and -- of course -- to make more and more money because of the constant need for churches and laymen to "update" their books. It's a racket and outright theft perpetrated as a consequence of the Vatican II Anti-council.
Like God, the Traditional Latin Mass and Sacred Scripture are essentially unchanging. They don't change to accord with the whim of a particular time. Most of the lections (Introit, Epistle, Gospel, etc.) in the Traditional Catholic Lectionary, included in the Missale Romanum that the priest uses at the altar and in handmissals used by the laity, go back to Pope St. Gregory the Great (ca. 540-604).
Newchurch is obsessed with changing everything to suit man's whims. The result has been a Protestantized, even paganized, "New Liturgy," which is no longer that of the Catholic Church, because the Newchurch of the New Order, founded in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council, is most certainly not the Catholic Church. Newchurch's "New Liturgy" has become so disgusting that attendance at Newchurch "liturgies" (they are not valid Masses) has sunk into the single digits and is continuing to sink further.
Traditional Catholics, Newchurchers are voting with their feet and their pocketbooks, just saying "no," and walking out. In some Newdioceses half the Newchurches are being closed and sold off to become bars and condominia. Most of the presbyters have walked out, retired, or died off. It is proof of the power of the prayers of Traditional Catholics these last sixty years is beginning to be seen and that the justice of God is catching up with the corruption and pridefulness of Newchurch and its minions.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I have noticed when the Lord's Prayer (Pater Noster) is prayed at Mass, the congregation often neglects to say "Amen." I know that at Mass [sic] we wait for the words "For thine is the kingdom," etc.
THE TRADITIO FATHERS REPLY.
You are not referring to the Catholic Mass, but the invalid (fake) Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New Mess" of 1969. First of all, the congregation makes no responses during the Catholic Mass. In the Catholic Mass, that is, the Traditional Latin Mass (1950), maintained outside of the Newchurch of the New Order by Traditional Catholic churches, chapels, and oratories, the altar servers in the sanctuary respond for the people. At the end of the Pater Noster at Mass, the rubric in the Missale Romanum directs the priest to say "Amen" in the secret (low) voice ("Sacerdos secrete dicit").
Note that the so-called "Dialogue Mass," in which the congregation makes responses, was introduced in the 1950s by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini and his Reformation Commission and is of Modernist/Protestant origin. Thus, it is never been observed by Traditional Catholics.
Second, the Catholic Mass does not have the Protestant embolism ("For thine is the kingdom," etc.), which even the Protestant scholars now admit was never uttered by Christ, but was an erroneous textual addition in the Greek manuscripts. This embolism was never a part of the (traditional) Latin Mass, but became widespread only after the apostate Vatican II Anti-council and the heretic Newpope Paul VI-Montini (r. 1963-1978), who introduced the invalid (fake) "New Mess."

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I have read that now many Newchurchers are beginning to believe that Francis-Bergoglio is not a real pope and that even Bergoglio himself has made statements of his own doubt. I notice, however, that Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX, which claims to be "traditionalist," has backed him all the way. Is Fellay still fantasizing about getting a Newcardinal's red hat so that down the pike he can become a Newpope of the New Order.
THE TRADITIO FATHERS REPLY.
There were rumors in the early 2010s that if Bernie Fellay joined the Newchurch of the New Order, Benedict-Ratzinger might install him as a Newbishop and set him as a dictator in charge of all "traditionalists," whatever that means in Newchurch. But then the Richard Williamson "holocaust" interview was aired, and all deals were off. Ratzinger regarded Fellay and his Neo-SSPX as personae non gratae. Remember, Ratzinger was working on tying his Newchurch with Judaism. He himself starred in an extravaganza in the Cologne Synagogue, in which he lighted the Jewish menorah for Hannukah.
Francis-Bergoglio has mostly stayed away from Fellay. When Fellay was in the Santa Marta cafeteria in Newvatican, Bergoglio snubbed him in favor of sitting with the crazy Evangelical; Joel Osteen. Fellay is a bought man. He hasn't said one word about the ongoing paedophile crimes with which Bergoglio has been identified as the "mastermind" in the ongoing Newvatican trial. Bergoglio has been caught converting (embezzling) the charitable donations of his Newchurchers into his own private bank to shore up his dictatorial regime, which is now on the verge of bankruptcy, according to his own Chief Auditor.
As Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust continues unabated, Fellay's silence speaks volumes about his corruption and that of the Neo-SSPX, which is being investigated in the United States and in Africa on accusations of sex crimes. The legal precept applicable s "Qui tacet consentit:" by his silence, he consents. St. Paul provides the most severe penalty for such complicity in grave sins in his Epistle to the Romans (ad 1:32).
Fellay has shown that he (and his puppet Superior General of the Neo-SSPX, Davide Pagliarani) are not running an organization that is associated with Archbishop Lefebvre's original Traditional Catholic Society of St. Pius X. The saintly Archbishop must be turning over in his grave to think how the organization that he founded has been so perverted to the fake "Conciliar Church" (what we now call the Newchurch of the New Order), which the Archbishop so detested as apostate from the Catholic Faith.
We have pointed out previously in these Daily Commentaries that Francis-Bergoglio is desperate to get funds to shore up his sinking Newvatican machine. According to recent studies, Newchurchers are walking out of Newchurch and its invalid (fake) New Mess in record numbers. Nor are Newchurchers contributing to Bergoglio's coffers now that they know about his conversion (embezzlement) of their charitable donations for his own administrative needs to keep his Newchurch afloat,
It was reported on October 30, 2022, that Bergoglio's agents in the Newarchdiocese of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and in the Newvatican Dicastery for Religious Institutes had forced the closure of the motherhouse and skimmed off a profit from the closure of some 10,000,000 USD into Bergoglio's "Vatican Bank," which is under investigation for financial corruption. The Newcarmelites were in the process of a "conservative" revival, but instead of encouraging this effort, Bergoglio shut down the motherhouse permanently.
The Newcarmelites have been the object of Bergoglio's ire because they are too "conservative" (but hardly traditional, being an arm of the apostate Newchurch). He has sent his Inquisitors to various locations to root out the least remnants of Catholicism and to use their predetermined findings to shut down the Newchurch religious orders' houses and skim off their funds for his own purposes. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]
Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio has used the ploy of these Newchurch Inquisitions to shut down Newchurch's few remaining "conservative" religious orders. He had previously launched Inquisitions into the Franciscans of the Immaculate and other "conservative" Newreligious orders. Some of them even dared to simulate the Half New Order New Latin Mess of 1962, which Bergoglio suppressed in the 2021 decree "Traditionis custodes." Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement continues unabated; in fact, it is getting worse. Bergoglio and his agents have become even more obsessive in suppressing anything Catholic in Newchurch (and there isn't much left) and introducing its place the worship of pagan secularism and even pagan gods, like the infamous Pachamama and Atacama.
A U.S. Federal Bankruptcy Court ruling may be a game changer for children raped, sodomized, and otherwise sexually assaulted by Newchurch presbyters and Newbishops. Up until now, the child victims had to deal with the corrupt Newdioceses, but now they can go directly to the Newparish level and get restitution from the venue where the crimes took place. Already 300 children have sued their local Newparishes.
Overwhelmed with having to pay restitution to the child victims, the Newdioceses of Rochester, Buffalo, Syracuse, and Long Island, New York, hid behind bankruptcy laws, which, until now, allowed Newparishes to secret their funds from the victims. But it was a ruse, as the Newdiocesan bishop is president of every Newparish corporation. The Newbishops have been dragging their feet in reaching a restitution agreement with the child victims. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Rochester Beacon.]
Traditional Catholics, the duplicity of Newchurch's bishops is never ending. While they constantly lalk about "love" and "zero tolerance" for their paedophile Newclergy, they use every trick in the book to get out of paying to the child victims a fair settlement. Because Francis-Bergoglio himself consistently lets off his criminal Newclergy without punishment, the Newbishops simply follow his immoral lead. Well, it may be that in New York at least the jig is up for Newchurch, which will now have to pay through the nose for the crimes that it has committed against children as young as six months of age.
Steubenville, Ohio, is one of the most extreme Leftist Newdioceses, a hotbed of heresy from the Franciscan University there. Yet even Modernist Steubenville could not escape the wrecking ball. Its own Newbishop, Jeff Monforton, has declared it dead and on October 10, 2022, tagged it for assimilation into the larger adjoining Newdiocese of Columbus, Ohio, as all over the United States and around the world Newchurch is being shut down.
Newchurch attendance and donations have tanked dramatically in the last two decades, as the Modernist Revolution of the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965) have taken full control, particularly in the new millennium. Monforton revealed that the Steubenville Newdiocese, which once numbered over 500,000,000 Catholics before the Anti-council, has now sunk to 29,000 Newchurchers. The Newdiocese has lost 24 per cent of its Newchurchers in the last twenty years, and 12 per cent in just the last five years. The number of priests at the time of the Anti-council was almost 200; now the number of Newchurch presbyters is barely 50, with most of these set to retire or die in a few years.
The Newchurch plan is to make this modus operandi, by which underpopulated Newdioceses are merged out of existence, the "template" for other Newdioceses. Many Newdioceses are now small and struggling, and they need to be put out of their misery as Newchurch dissolves. At the same time Monforton is himself under investigation for sex crimes against children and Newdiocesan embezzlement, as is his Newmonsignor and pastors.
According to numerous studies, Newchurchers are walking out at increased rates. Even those who still identify with Newchurch rarely attend the fake (invalid) Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Mess of 1969. Francis-Bergoglio's popularity is sinking as his role as mastermind of the 350,000,000 USD London real-estate embezzlement of Newchurcher's charitable donations diverted to shore up his dictatorial regime is exposed. Newchurch is sinking into bankruptcy, according to its own Chief Auditor. All this is coming out in the trial currently going on in Newvatican.
Newchurchers are disgusted by Bergoglio's support of sex crimes against children from the top on down. Criminal Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters have been identified, but Bergoglio sets them free without punishment. For all Bergoglio's talk about a "zero-tolerance policy" toward his paedophile Newclergy, he has done nothing but put out web sites and form study commissions. Even the members of those commissions have denounced Bergoglio for inaction and resigned.
Most recently, at the same time Bergoglio calls for "fraternity," he has not lifted a finger to help the 90- year- old courageous Newcardinal Joseph Zen, of Hong Kong, who has been arrested by Xi Jinping, the atheist Communist Chinese Dictator, and dragged before a show trial. Bergoglio has officially turned over his pseudo-papal power to the Communist Dictator to appoint all the Newbishops for Red China. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Steubenville Newdiocese.]
Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio just doesn't care anymore. He has even made statements to the international press that he is not sure he is really a pope, and he has admitted that there are many Catholics who do not believe that he is a pope either. Meanwhile, Newchurch continues to sink into a sewer of paedophile crimes and embezzlement. More and more Newchurchers are abandoning Newchurch and Bergoglio, as Newchurch sinks liturgically, doctrinally, and morally. Yet its demise is not to be mourned. It is most certainly not the Catholic Church, but an apostate sect, which deserves to die as quickly as possible, so as not to fool any more confused souls into perdition.
The bishops of the Newchurch of the New Order stood in shock as Francis-Bergoglio on October 6, 2022, announced that he was demoting the role of his Newbishops and starting to move away from "episcopal conferences" to "ecclesial conferences" with women and laymen in charge of Newbishops. The first will be the Ecclesial Conference of the Amazon, including Brazil, Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Peru, Venezuela, Suriname, Guiana and French Guiana. Bergoglio's representative, Newcardinal Pedro Barreto, a member of the heretic "Liberation Theology" Newjesuits like Bergoglio himself, announced that "in the coming years [New]bishops’ conferences will have to transform themselves into ecclesial conferences." In conjunction with the fabrication of an unprecedented "ecclesial conferences," Bergoglio's agents are developing an "Amazonian Rite" of Mess to reflect the local pagan practices of the Amazon.
At Newrome even the Dicastery for Newbishops was stunned, and there is likely to be more calls for Bergoglio's ouster as a heretic. The man Bergoglio has truly gone over the edge. Already in the Amazonian states women are now simulating invalid "initiations" (formerly called baptisms), officiating at weddings, conducting "liturgies," and hearing "reconciliations" (formerly called confessions).

Traditional Catholics, it will not be surprising when Francis-Bergoglio declares the "patron saint" of this ecclesial conference to be Pachamama, the nude, pregnant fertility goddess of the Amazon, whose worship is spreading throughout Latin Amercian with Bergoglio's full support. This is the pagan goddess whom Bergoglio, together with many of his Newcardinals, "blessed" in St. Peter's Archbasilica on top of the tomb of St. Peter himself. Such a blasphemy, idolatry, and sacrilege is inconceivable except in the Newchurch of the New Order and by the man who purports to be a "pope," but is actually an excommunicate Marxist/Modernist. You can be sure he will perpetrate more outrages against Our Lord, the Blessed Virgin, and the Saints of the true Catholic Church.
The Canada census shows 2,000,000 fewer Newchurch members as disaffection grows with the Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly not the Catholic Church. The Canadian Census Office reported on October 27, 2022, that the Newchurch population in Canada has declined by almost 2,000,000, or 16 per cent, in just the last decade Even the category of those who have no religion now outnumbers Newchurchers, who now make up not even 30 per cent of the Canadian population. Even in the once-Catholic Province of Quebec, the number of Newchurchers plummeted in a decade from 75 per cent to 54 per cent.
Yet, as numbers have plummeted in Newchurch, traditional Orthodox Christian sects increased. These are denominations that reject the Modernist/Marxist Newchurch and similar groups and stay with Apostolic Tradition, including Traditional Catholics independent of Newchurch.

Traditional Catholics, it is ironic that even those Newchurchers who remain with the Protestant- Masonic-Pagan Newchurch do not practice the Newchurch religion. Not even 20 per cent of Canadian Newchurchers even bothered to attend the (invalid) New Order service or any other activity monthly. The participation rate is thus down by half since 1985. The remainder spurn even Newchurch teaching on abortion, euthanasia, and sodomy. Many of them also spurned their purported leader, Francis- Bergoglio, on his July 2022 visit there.
