The Narcissist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio is very proud of his 2015 Encyclical Letter "Laudato si,'" which pushes the Leftist political agenda of the Green Party. He has already announced a sequel to be issued on October 4, 2023, cynically to be entitled "Laudate Dominum." The former even ended with a Latin poem to the Earth Goddess. Then, in 2019, the apostate Newpope idolatrously "blessed" the nude pagan fertility goddess Pachamama and installed it beside the high altar of St. Peter's Archbasilica for Newchurchers to worship.
What does any of this have to do with the Catholic religion? Nothing. It is entirely outside the scope of a true pope (which Bergoglio as a Marxist/Modernist apostate is certainly not), as dogmatically defined by the Vatican I Council: "For the Holy Ghost was promised to the successors of Peter not so that they might, by His revelation, make known some new doctrine, but that, by His assistance, they might religiously guard and faithfully expound the revelation or Deposit of Faith transmitted by the Apostles." But the post- Vatican II Anti-council's Newpopes long ago violated the limitations of their office and deposed themselves.
The good news is that even the Newchurchers themselves are now starting to understand the truth that their Newchurch of the New Order, founded in 1964 at that Anti-council, is not a religious organization, but a political organization, which has taken over the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church. Newchurch is clearly NOT the Catholic Church, but a fraud that continues to use the name "Catholic" to maintain its money and power, but is no more the Catholic Church than is Martin Luther's Church.
One chastened laywoman wrote about "an increasing level of politically charged nonsense ... on climate change [sic]," filled with Marxist/Modernist catch-phrases, in her Newparish vestibule, as in Newparishes all over the world. Newchurch's mixing into irrelevant political issues took off after 1964 with such documents as the Unsaint Newpope Paul VI-Montini's encyclical letter "Populorum progressio" of 1967, but Bergoglio broke the bank with his "Laudato si'," which was an unashamedly open political screed devoid of any religion whatsoever.
In "Laudato si'" Bergoglio merely plagiarized for his inspiration Greenpeace and Friends of the Earth secular political pamphlets. He brazenly promotes socialist (Communist) economies and their immoral agendas. He even moved to add to the traditional several Corporal Works of Mercy "environmentalism," just as the Unsaint Newpope JPII-Wojtyla promulgated a corrupted "rosary" that added five New Age "Luminous" Mysteries. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Country Squire Magazine.]
Traditional Catholics, the anti-Catholic Newchurch of the New Order and its false Newpopes eschew the Apostolic abstinence from fleshmeat on all Fridays of the year for spiritual penance and have advocated against meat-eating entirely for the crass secular purpose of vaunted "environmentalism." Newchurch has perverted the traditional abstinence instituted by the Apostles for the benefit of the souls of men to a political meme for saving the whales!
Almost-Newcardinal Victor Fernandez, Francis-Bergoglio's newly appointed attack dog, has been busy these days. After assailing traditionalists in Newchurch as "dangerous right wingers," he upped the ante on September 11, 2023, to attack Neocon Newbishops to silence them from criticizing the apostate Newpope, his bosom buddy from the good old days in Marxist Argentina.
Victor Fernandez threatened that no Newbishop can judge the "doctrine of the [Un]holy Father." This is yet another Newchurch scam, as true popes, of course, do not devise "doctrine." By Catholic dogma doctrine comes from Jesus Christ through Public Revelation, i.e., Sacred Scripture (The Bible) and Sacred Tradition. Even a true pope is subservient to these. Fernandez made the pronouncement because Bergoglio was reported to be open to blessing "gay marriages." transsexualism, and other perversions, and some Newbishops were openly criticizing him for it.
Bergoglio appointed Fernandez Prefect of the Dicastery of the (New Order) Faith, effective September 30, 2023. He warned Neocon bishops, some of whom have openly called Bergoglio a heretic, that they are "on a road to 'heresy' and 'schism.'" Fernandez himself uttered heresy when he proclaimed that "the pope (sic) not only has a duty to guard and preserve the 'static' deposit of faith, but also a second, unique charism, only given to Peter and his successors, which is 'a living and active gift.'" The second statement is not Catholicism, but heretical Modernism, condemned by all the popes from Pius IX to Pius XII. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by National Catholic Register.]
Traditional Catholics, Fernandez went on to single out Newcardinal Ray "Bully" Burke, a darling of the Neocons, who has sometimes intimated that he thinks Bergoglio is a heretic. Yet Burke himself "consecrated" a man as a "nun" when Burke was Newbishop of La Crosse, Wisconsin and persecuted an independent traditionalist-learning Newparish when Burke was Newarchbishop of St. Louis, Missouri. The deep hypocrisy of Newchurch is alive and well!
It's happening all over the world: Newchurches are being shut down . Many of them are being razed; others are being turned into bars, breweries, and restaurants, which are attracting more people than Newchurch ever did for its Vatican II Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New Mess." And if you think that the Half New Order Vatican II "New Latin Messes" of 1962 are being spared, you have another think coming.
On September 24, 2023, the once-traditional church in Veszprem, a former Jesuit church with a "breathtaking interior," site of one of the few New Latin Messes in Hungary, was slammed shut and turned into a bar and restaurant. The Neo-SSPX briefly took over the property for a few months in 2021, but has since been thrown out, and the church has been "repurposed" as a bar and restaurant, providing "tastings and gourmet experiences by national and international chefs for gourmets." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Deutsche News.]
A few of these New Latin Messes of 1962, once called "Extraordinary," and now essentially condemned, were re-introduced in 2007 by a leader of the Modernist heretics at the Vatican II Anti-council, Josef Ratzinger, later to restyle himself "Benedict," to trick the Neocons and Pseudo-traditionalists into giving their bodies and money to the apostate Newchurch of the New Order and its perverted Newpopes. The Half New Order Vatican II New Latin Mess of 1962, simulated by unordained priests (Newchurch has not ordained priests since 1968, when it adopted a Protestantized New Ordinal), has now become part of the Newchurch shutdowns. In 2021, by decree of their Newpope Francis-Bergoglio ("Traditiones custodes") and subsequent decrees, the New Latin Mess is being shut down at an increasing rate.Traditional Catholics, the Neocon and Pseudo-traditionalists Newchurchers need to wise up and get out of Newchurch entirely. They have been had by Ratzingers and Bergoglios. The Newchurch of the New Order is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church. It does not have a Catholic Mass, it does not believe Catholic doctrine, and it does not preach Catholic morality. There are plenty of independent Traditional Catholic churches, chapels, and oratories around, which do not bend the knee to the apostate Newchurch.

On September 20, 2021, the Premier of Western Australia expressed anger that Francis-Bergoglio has still not turned over to civil authorities the evidence it has on "serious" sex crimes against children committed by Newbishop Christopher Saunders, Newbishop of Broome. The government found out about Bergoglio's cover-up only when a copy of Newvatican's 200-page report was leaked to the Australian media.
The Newvatican report identifies Saunders as a "predator" who sexually assaulted four Aboriginal boys and seduced another 67. Saunders is also charged with spending hundreds of thousands of dollars on the victims of his seductions by plying the children with gifts of alcohol, cellphones, cash, and travel. When Australian media found out about the secret report, Saunders burned the evidence of office documents, files, and photographs. Bergoglio's Dicastery for the Doctrine of the (Newchurch) Faith, headed by his accomplice, Newcardinal-designate Javier Fernandez, was also implicated in the cover-up. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by The West Australian.]
Traditional Catholics, as Francis-Bergoglio's international reputation continues to sink after it was discovered that he was lending money to Russia to prosecute the war against Ukraine and after suspicions arose that it was he who moved the U.S. Federal Bureau of Investigation to declare "traditionalist" Newchurchers terrorists, now the Australian government has charged Bergoglio with hiding a paedophile presbyter associated with "serious" sex crimes against children. It seems, once again, that Bergoglio's oft-proclaimed zero-tolerance policy toward paedophile Newcardinals, Newbishops, and presbyters is a fraud, contrived merely to further his disinformation campaign upon his clueless Newchurchers and the world.
On September 19, 2023, Newarchbishop Nicola Girasoli, "went animal style" (stile animalier) and wore the latest in Newchurch couture, a leopard chasuble, ripped from the hide of an endangered leopard, for a New Mess in Puglia, Italy. The report did not indicate whether he wore a matching leopard handbag. To borrow a phrase, the "web went wild" in its denunciation of the apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio's nuncio, so much so, in fact, that photographs of the Mess, at first proudly displayed on the Newarchbishop's web site, were abruptly taken down.
Yet, the new frock seems perfectly appropriate to the paganism that is the "New Mess" and the fact that Newchurch clergymen act like animals in their immoral lives. But Girasoli was only following the perverted example of his principal, the apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, who went "Afro style" for a "New Mess" in 2019 and on subsequent occasions. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Italian Com24.]
Traditional Catholics, these sacrileges, blasphemies, and idolatries are all part of the destruction of the Roman Catholic Mass (Traditional Latin Mass) perpetrated by the Vatican II Anti-council (Decree Sacrosanctum Concilium, 1963, para. 38, 40), which allowed the introduction of pagan rites. In addition to pagan vesture, music, and dance, that abhorrent anti-Catholic "inculturation" has gone so far now as to allow the replacement of statues of the Blessed Virgin Mary with the nude pagan fertility goddess Pachamama, at churches throughout Latin American and even at St. Peter's Archbasilica itself.
Newchurchers, hasn't your Newchurch of the New Order gotten to the point yet of such vile corruption that you have run out, never to return? It doesn't even matter whether your Newparish has deluded you with a fake Half New Order Vatican II New Latin Mess of 1962, everything is corrupted, not least because the Newchurch clergy is corrupted. The latest example will blow your mind away.
A homosexual Newchurch presbyter, Tomasz Zmarzly -- no, Newchurch doesn't screen sodomites out, but flies the "Gay Pride" flag -- held an orgy with other Newclergy gay friends of his and called a male prostitute to join them. They were all taking Viagra sex pills when one of the gay clergyman overdosed himself on Viagra sex pills and collapsed into unconsciousness. The prostitute, showing at least some morality, called paramedics to assist the presbyter's "friend."
When the paramedics arrived, the presbyter wouldn't let them in. So far have Newchurch and its immoral Newclergy fallen. Newchurch has not ordained priests since 1968, when after the Vatican II Anti-council, it adopted a invalid (fake) Protestantized that merely "installs presbyters (ministers) to preside over the assembly of the people." These presbyters are thus no more priests than are Protestant ministers. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the U.K. Daily Mail.]
Traditional Catholics, according to reports of the incident, the event was "organized by (Newchurch) clergy and was purely sexual." Similar sex orgies have been held in Newvatican itself, sponsored even by Newcardinals. Ironically, this presbyter hails from the Basilica of the Blessed Virgin Mary of the Angels, near Warsaw, Poland. In reality, the Blessed Virgin would vomit this "presbyter" out of her mouth and commit the Newchurch of the New Order and its corrupt clergy, from the Newpopes on down, to perdition. The presbyter's Newbishop didn't even have the guts to expel Smarzly immediately, but had to set up a "commission" to make a decision. However, the Newbishop has been trumped by state prosecutors, who have launched their own investigation into the presbyter's crime of "failure to provide assistance to a person whose life is at risk." So much for Newchurch's vaunted "love" and "mercy."
The Newchurch bishops and parishioners all turned a blind out to presbyter Thomsz Gorny, who embezzled more than 100,000 USD in Newparish funds from the Immaculate Heart of Mary to satisfy a female Newparish employee, with whom he was a live-in fornicator for over ten years, starting immediately after he was "installed" as a presbyter (Newchurch has not ordained priests since 1968, when it adopted an invalid (fake) Protestantized New Ordinal.) The woman's two daughters wanted the presbyter out of the house, but the presbyter "acted as if the house were his."
He also used the funds on a pistol and ammunition, fancy clothes, exotic foods, wines, and video games. He also cleaned out Home Depot, going on a 32,000-USD spending spree for personal items. The case blew up on September 13, 2023, in a Massachusetts courtroom. The funds were stolen from the Newparish's offertory collection.
It took the clueless Newbishop of Springfield, Mitchell Rozanski, over ten years to figure out that the Newdiocese was being bilked by the grifter presbyter, who was reported to police only in December 2022. It then took until February 2023 for Rozanski's successor, William Byrne, to remove the presbyter from his Newparish assignment. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic Citizens.]
Traditional Catholics, the Newchurch jig is up. According to a study published in the Journal of Forensic and Investigative Accounting, Newchurch presbyters were found to "have a strong ability to commit fraud" because they were more than normally plagued with "moral lapses." More than half of the cases of embezzling presbyters studied showed that the stolen funds were used "primarily to support a lavish lifestyle." Just another reason why no true Catholics should set foot in a site run by the Newchurch of the New Order, but should seek out an independent Traditional Catholic church, chapel, or oratory not affiliated with Newchurch, which is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church, any more than is Martin Luther's church.
The opposition to Francis-Bergoglio's apostate Newchurch and to himself as its Newpope is hitting the mark. Bergoglio, who suffers from Narcissistic Personality Disorder (NPD), is going into another of his manic-depressive episodes. The man, who has been routinely called throughout Europe the "Dictator (New)pope," has become enraged because many of his "traditionalist" Newchurchers are now openly calling him a heretic and a pseudo-pope.
Many of these traditionalists are attached to the Half New Order Vatican II New Latin Mess of 1962, which Bergoglio is moving fast to shut down completely. His 2021 decree "Traditionis custodes" was only his opening salvo toward that goal. Bergoglio is now removing Newbishops sympathetic to the New Latin Mess, as well as shutting down convents (e.g., Carmelites) and monasteries (e.g., Franciscans) sympathetic to that Mess. He has gutted the pseudo-traditionalist Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP) and the Institute of Christ the King (ICRSS).
On September 19, Bergoglio sent his leading attack dog out to issue the most virulent attack yet, designating Newchurch traditionalists "dangerous extreme right-wingers." Newarchbishop Victor Fernandez, who hails from the same Marxist-leaning Argentina from which Bergoglio himself comes and is one of Bergoglio's closest intimates, was appointed by Bergoglio in 2023 as Prefect of the Newchurch Dicastery for the Doctrine of the (New Order) Faith to replace the comparatively conservative Luis Ladaria Ferrer. Bergoglio has been very successful with infiltrating fellow Marxists like Fernandez into his bureaucracy to reflect his own Marxist stance. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Newchurch news sources.]
Curiously, Fernandez's words closely reflect the verbiage in the secret United States Federal Bureau of Investigation memorandum encouraging the arrest of traditionalist Newchurchers. The U.S. Congress has not yet been able to identify conclusively the source of the secret memorandum. One is left to wonder whether the impetus for that memorandum was Bergoglio himself through an intermediary. Fortunately, the Congress got wind of the matter through a whistleblower and immediately called U.S. Attorney General Merrick Garland on the carpet and threatened to impeach him out of office.
Traditional Catholics, Victor Fernandez simultaneously revealed that Bergoglio has been de facto barred from returning to his native Argentina, as the Argentines have turned against him. The leading candidate for the Argentinean Presidency is Javier Millei, a staunch conservative against abortion and sodomy, who has publicly denounced Bergoglio as a Marxist doing great harm to the Church and the world. Moreover, Bergoglio would be in legal jeopardy if he set foot in Argentina because children and other victims of his paedophile Newclergy stand ready to drag him to justice for all the crimes he has committed in mishandling and covering up paedophile rapes, sodomies, and other sexual assaults by his presbyters and Newbishops.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
You refer to the New Latin Mess of 1962 as just that: a "Mess." I understand that this corruption was a stepping-stone in terms of the sacrilegious aberrations initiated by the Freemason presbyter Hannibal Bugnini under Pius XII and culminated in the full-blown Vatican II Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Order Mess. Can we conclude, therefore, that the New Latin Mess is invalid? What was the position of Archbishop Lefebvre and now the Neo-Society of St. Pius X on the question?
THE TRADITIO FATHERS REPLY.
The text of the New Latin Mess is clearly corrupted and rejects the True Mass, established in the first place by Christ Himself, His Apostles, and the Fathers and popes of the early Church. Thus, whether or not the "1962 Mess" is just barely valid, Catholics have the obligation to shun it. Moreover, when simulated in Newchurch now, it is definitely invalid because Newchurch since 1968 has not ordained priests "to offer the sacrifice of the Mass for the living and the dead," but has merely "installed presbyters (like ministers) to preside over the assembly of the people," like the Protestants, whose services are invalid. Newchurch is essentially a Protestant sect -- actually worse because of the addition of Jewish and Pagan elements.
Archbishop Lefebvre did not accept the New Latin Mess fully, but expressed public doubts about it. He said that after he acted against what he believed to be the greatest heresy of the Vatican II Anti-council, religious freedom, or what came to be called the Heresy of "Oecumenism" (we all worship the same gods, all religions are true), he would study and address further the question of the 1962 Mess for the SSPX. It is true that the Archbishop did use the New Latin Mass at the beginning, but only with some reversing modifications. He also used valid priests, not unconsecrated Newchurch presbyters. He apparently regretted the decision to use the New Latin Mess, as in the last three years of his life, he indicated his intention to return to the Traditional Latin Mass, but death overtook him.
As to the Neo-SSPX, founded by Bernie Fellay in 1994, there have been continuing reports that some of Neo-SSPX "priests" are not "kosher." More recently, Fellay seems to be accepting unordained Newchurch presbyters as priests and at least one unconsecrated Newbishop. Recent reports indicate that he is on a path to accepting more unconsecrated Newchurch bishops, as Bishop Williamson abandoned him in 2012, and Bishop Bernard Tissier de Mallerais is seriously ill. That leaves only Fellay himself and Bishop Alfonso de Galarreta.
Fellay has already sold out to the apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio and his Newchurch of the New Order on the question of "Reconciliations" (Newchurch's word for the former Sacrament of Penance) and Matrimony, which is supposed to be conducted only in conjunction with the local Newchurch parish. In addition, reports have been circulating for years that the Neo-SSPX is handing out "divorces" like candy through secret "tribunals."
Francis-Bergoglio, the apostate Newpope, in addition to rejecting the Catholic Faith in doctrine, morals, and liturgy, has also gone far afield by engaging in secular politics. The role of a true pope (which Bergoglio is, of course, not, as the Newchurch of the New Order is not the Catholic Church) is religious, not political. Apparently, the world has now had enough of Bergoglio's interference in politics outside his realm. On September 9, 2023, he was publicly charged with lending money to Russia through his corrupt (New)Vatican Bank to continue prosecuting the Ukrainian War.
The Ukrainian government has revealed that Bergoglio's Newvatican Bank has been accepting investments (bribes) from Russia, which is supposed to be under a European embargo. Moreover, hsi Bank is not supposed to be dealing in funds from government, but only from his religious organizations. Thus, the Ukraine government has branded Bergoglio to the world as a "uncredible" liar and a puppet of Russia. The Ukraine will have nothing further to do with him. It flatly refuses to have Bergoglio involved in any way in a mediation of the war, declaring that Bergoglio has "canceled the reputation of the Holy See." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Crux News Service.]
Traditional Catholics, it appears that Francis-Bergoglio has lied yet again when he claimed that his (New)vatican Bank had been cleaned up, just as he lied when he stated that he has a zero-tolerance policy toward his paedophile clergy and then returned to full honors, without even a slap on the hand, five Newbishops and Newcardinals who were denounced to him by the German (New)bishops' Conference as paedeophile perpetrators. It seems that the "His Unholiness" is now being justly ensnared in his own lies and shunned by more and more around the world as a fake and a hypocrite.
In August 2022 two women "concelebrated" a Mess at St. Martin Newparish in Chur, Switzerland, with the approval and participation of the two Newpastors at St. Martin Newparish. Newchurch is so corrupt now that it has taken over a year for any action to be taken, and that action was no action against the woman and barely a slap on the wrist for the two Newpastors. If a video of the event hadn't "gone viral" on the internet, Newchurch would have done nothing.
As if to prove that Newchurch has no idea what a real Mass is, a "careful investigation of the matter" concluded that "there were no serious liturgical violations in this service." Yet the two women stood at the eucharistic dinner table (formerly "altar"), extended their arms, and pronounced the words of the fake (invalid) Novus Ordo "unconsecration," or rather a substantially-improvised version thereof. The sacrilege, blasphemy, and idolatry received extensive media coverage. The Chur Newbishop, Joseph Bonnemain, even thanked those involved "for their committed pastoral work for the good of the people.” [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic News Agency.]
The women not ignorant; they were trying to make a political statement. They want a Newer New Order that "reaches out to people in their daily lives, in their language, and in their understanding of themselves." That verbiage has nothing to do with religion, but is mere political claptrap. Newchurch is trying to straddle the fence on the issue of priestesses, which are prohibited by Sacred Scripture and Sacred Apostolic Tradition.
Traditional Catholics, the apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio & Co. desperately want to go Protestant on this issue like the Anglican/Episcopalians, Lutherans, and certain other Protestant sects, but Newchurch knows that if they move too fast, they will lose even more members than they already area because of its Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, its "New Mess," its Newdoctrine, and its Newmorality, none of which are Catholic, as Newchurch is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church. So, these sacrileges, blasphemies, and idolatries will simply move forward and expand within the fake Newchurch of the New Order.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Is it permitted to say the Rosary during Mass, or are there better devotions that one should use?
THE TRADITIO FATHERS REPLY.
In uniting yourself to the purposes of Holy Mass -- adoration, reparation, thanksgiving, and petition -- you may use private devotions, like the Rosary. Most laudable, however, is to follow and meditate upon the Mass prayers, both Ordinary and Proper to the Sunday, in your traditional handmissal. These are the principal objects of prayer that the Church, from ancient times, especially puts before you for prayer and reflection each given Sunday. No other handmissal provides such complete information.
The fully-traditional St. Andrew Daily Missal with Vespers for Sundays and Feasts and Kyriale (1945) is particularly good for this purpose, as it explains in detail the meaning of each of the various prayers, antiphons, and readings for each Sunday and feastday of the year. Everything is provided in its traditional Latin text, with an English rendering.

The latest country to fall in Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust is little Switzerland. It is a country of not even 9,000,000 people, about the population of the single city of London, England. One-third of these Swiss claim to be Newchurchers. Yet the Swiss (New)bishops' Conference was horrified to report on September 12, 2023, that more than 1,000 cases of rape, sodomy, and other sexual assaults have been perpetrated in Switzerland by over 500 Newchurch presbyters and Newbishops since the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965). 74 per cent of the crimes have been committed against underage boys and girls. The report was commissioned by the Conference and conducted by the University of Zurich. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency-Germany.]
The Swiss Newbishops were at least honest in admitting:
The findings expose deep-rooted issues that go beyond the actions of individual perpetrators to systemic causes that (New)church leaders must answer for. (New)church criminal law was scarcely enforced for much of the study period. Instead, many cases were deliberately concealed or minimized.
Traditional Catholics, in other words, Newchurch engaged in a massive cover-up of these crimes, assisting criminal presbyters and Newbishops to escape, even across country boundaries. Thus does Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust continue unabated, getting worse with each successive Newpope: "Unsaint" Paul VI-Montini, "Unsaint" JP II-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and especially Francis-Bergoglio.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
I have been shocked to see women invading liturgical choirs in church. What is even more shocking is the fact that even some churches that call themselves "traditional" are committing this sacrilege. Aren't women absolutely prohibited from singing in liturgical choirs?
THE TRADITIO FATHERS REPLY.
We share your outrage about this sacrilege. Pope St. Pius X was crystal clear in stating the traditional position of the Church when he wrote in his Motu Proprio "Inter pastoralis officii sollicitudines" (November 22, 1903) that the lay choir substitutes for clerics exactly as altar servers do; hence, only males can compose the choir. Later, in 1947, a dubium (question) was submitted to the Sacred Congregation of Rites on this topic as follows:
Quaestio. Is it permitted to employ a "mixed" choir, or body of men and women, occupying a place most remote from the altar and engaged in fulfilling the duties of a liturgical choir?
Responsum. "Negative, et ad mentem" [NO, it is NOT permitted according to the mind of the Church.]
That was the constant teaching of the Church, that is, until the Modernist Freemason presbyter was put in charge of the "reformation" of the Sacred Liturgy. Hannibal Bugnini, a known Freemason, and by that fact an excommunicate, the same who destroyed the Roman Catholic liturgy and installed the fake (invalid) New Mess in its place, put out the Instruction "De musica sacra et sacra liturgia," on September 3, 1958, when Pius XII was in mortal illness a month before his death.
Bugnini's New Music document, like his "New Latin Mess" (1962) "New Mess" (1969) later, destroyed the musical tradition of the Church, imposing, among other sacrileges:
Bugnini's sacrileges were denounced at the time by senior officials of the Church, who were very familiar with Catholic liturgical teaching. One of these was the authoritative Msgr. Leo Mazetti, Doctor of Music and an eminent authority on Church music, who did not sugarcoat the sacrilege of using women in liturgical choirs:
From an artistic standpoint there are no parts of our chants and services that choirs of men and boys cannot perform to better advantage for the spiritual uplifting of the Christian mind. Church musicians (when they are experts in vocal art) agree that WOMEN'S VOICES ARE EFFEMINATE, SENSUOUS, AND OPERATIC, HENCE UNCHURCHLY; that boys' voices are, on the contrary, unsophisticated and unsensual, carrying with them a note of sincerity, candor, and simplicity, a purity of accent that most fittingly expresses the prayerful attitude of the faithful.
The apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, far from the "merciful" one he claims to be, is reported to be revving up his Newvatican vengeance machine against the truth-teller Joseph Strickland, Newbishop of Tyler, Texas, who has had the guts to call him out publicly for the apostate he clearly is and to reject his "programme for undermining the Deposit of Faith." In fact, Newchurch has lost the Faith entirely. It is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church, any more than Martin Luther's Church is.
If Bergoglio tries to force Strickland to abdicate, he is not going to go quietly, but courageously proclaims: "They won't stop me. When we're speaking the truth of Jesus Christ, there is no politically correct. And the world can try to shut us down, but it won’t work. I think that I went through this because I’ve been bold enough, and loved the Lord enough and his Church, simply preaching the truth."
Strickland understands the hierarchy of the Church, which escapes the Newchurchers, even the Neocons and Pseudo-traditionalists: "Ipse est caput corporis ecclesiae," [Christ Himself is the head of the body of the Church] (Colossians 1:18/V). For that courage, Bergoglio has already started to cover up his vengeful stratagems by intimating that there are vague "mismanagement" problems in Strickland's Newdiocese. This is a cover-up tactic that has been used before by the apostate Bergoglio and his Newpope predecessors to get rid of their enemies. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic News sources.]
Traditional Catholics, Newbishop Joseph Strickland is a rara avis in Newchurch He is absolutely firm that he is saying what needs to be said and won't be silenced by anyone, including Bergoglio, who will try to force him to resign, but Strickland may just be the one who won't. Francis-Bergoglio doesn't want to fire any of his Newbishops because that act will boomerang upon him badly. He didn't fire even the five German Newbishops who were denounced to him by the German Bishops' Conference for paedophile crimes and their cover-up. If he fires Strickland, Strickland may just have the guts to fight back against the apostate Bergoglio, even refusing to give up his Newdiocese and taking Bergoglio to the civil courts. Then what is the weakened and increasingly-despised Bergoglio to do?
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
It seems that nothing is sacred in the Newchurch, as I read that Newchurch has now Novus-Ordo beatified an entire family of nine in Poland for their resistance to the Nazis in the Second World War. I can't see how this is remotely close to martyrdom for the Catholic Faith. What is going on here? It seems that these purported "beatifications" do not involve martyrdom for the Faith, but political activism. Is Newchurch now Novus-Ordo "beatifying" in batches to drum up interest in the once-Catholic nation of Poland, which it has now lost because its Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust has so deeply affected Polish children?THE TRADITIO FATHERS REPLY.
First of all, the Newchurch of the New Order, fabricated in 1964 to replace the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church, which it in fact has, is not the Catholic Church, any more than Martin Luther's Church is. Newchurch was fabricated at the Vatican II Anti-council in 1964 to replace the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church, a ruse in which it has been quite successful among the clueless Newchurchers.
Therefore, Newchurch has no power to canonize Saints. It has lost the true Mass and the Sacraments, and has no grace to impart. That is why, as you have observed, many of the "Unsaints" are coming from non-religious persons. Bergoglio has already "con-anized" one Communist and is planning to "con-anize" yet another.

Young women forced into repeated sexual assaults by older men. Physical and mental abuse. Separation from families. Beatings of both men and women. All these crimes, say three whistleblowers on September 11, 2023, are being conducted under the auspices of the Newchurch of the New Order in the Newdiocese of Fresno, California, near the world-famous Yosemite National Park, in a "Pro-life" organization, Catholics [Sic] United for Life, as Newchurch turns its "pro-life" organizations into cesspools for sex crimes.
Dozens of young women are said to be the victims of this latest Newchurch scheme. And what does the Newchurch diocese of Fresno say? Nothing. That's right, nothing. It hasn't even denied the charges, which involve several of the leaders of the organization. CUFL has thirteen affiliate groups throughout the United States. Who knows whether these groups have been committing the same crimes against young girls?
CUFL stages an annual youth conference, which features young people being exposed to Newchurch presbyters for "personal interaction ... and just hanging out." Now we know what "hanging out" means in the perverted Newchurch vocabulary! At the center of this fraud is the fake (invalid) Newchurch "eucharist," the phony cookies and Kool-Aid, which Newchurch is using to delude and corrupt the youth. It is surely suspicious that the 2023 conference has been canceled. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
Traditional Catholics, Newchurch continues on its downward spiral. Now, under the banner of "Pro Life," it runs a sex cult. Is there nothing sacred in Newchurch (no)! Newchurch is really not against abortion. Francis-Bergoglio's public position is dubious at best. Any Newchurcher who wants to associate with these "pro-life" front groups had better think again. They are a ruse, as Newchurch is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church. It is no more Catholic than is Martin Luther's Church. It has no Mass, no Sacraments, and no grace to give. Newchurch organizations are often front groups for the most vile activities: sodomy, heresy, fake "liturgies" and "sacraments," and other perversions.
Oh, yes, Newchurch puts on a good show. It has all the funds that it routinely embezzles from its members for corrupt purposes and spends on worldwide propaganda. Its Newpopes -- Paul VI-Montini, JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio -- have all sponsored the corruption now endemic in Newchurch, and the oblivious Newchurchers never even demand of these frauds what Sacred Scripture (The Holy Bible) requires: "Give an account of thy stewardship: for now thou canst be steward no longer" (Luke 16:2/DRV). No wonder Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust continues unabated.
Javier Millei should know. He hails from the Marxist Newpope Francis-Bergoglio's old stomping ground as Newarchbishop of the Buenos Aires, Argentina, Newarchdiocese (1998-2013), infamous for its presbyters' perpetrating sex crimes against children. Millei is now running for President of Argentina and won the primaries in August 2023. He still remains ahead of his two opponents. Argentina is now turning against the apostate Newpope, and Newchurch is stricken with the fear of God.
Millei holds that Bergoglio's interference in the political affairs of his native Argentina and around the world has nothing to do with the office of the Newpapacy. Also, Millei is a capitalist economist, whereas Bergoglio is a Marxist. Millei has been excoriating Bergoglio in the press for his involvement in secular matters that are none of his business, particularly the fabricated Marxist/Modernist "social justice" construct and the "green" political agenda. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Our Sunday Visitor.]
Traditional Catholics, the Argentinean populist Javier Millei has called the apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio an "imbecile who defends the aberration of 'social justice,'" a "Leftist son of a bitch preaching Communism," and the "representative of the Evil One" for hawking Communist "social justice." Bergoglio has himself admitted his own Marxism, condemned by the Catholic Church, in his autobiography. He has also supported homosexuality, lesbianism, and transsexualism, and has grown more open to abortion. Millei seems to have put his finger on the pulse of his country and its antipathy to its former corrupt Newarchbishop Bergoglio.
In the whirlwind of Newchurch dioceses and parishes being shut down, sometimes up to half their number, the fact could be missed that Newchurch colleges are also shutting down. There is something about the Newchurch experience that is turning collegians away from these colleges. The latest to shut down is the hundred-year-old Notre Dame de Namur University in the San Francisco Bay Area of California, run by the failing Sisters of Notre Dame de Namur.
The nearly 200,000 square-meter Newchurch institution is celebrating its hundredth year by shutting down. In 2019 the university boasted some 1,200 undergraduate and graduate students. Now that number has fallen to only 200 graduate students. Newchurch will lose the huge university property in Belmont, which will be taken over and secularized by the nearby thriving Stanford University. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Inside Higher Ed.]
Traditional Catholics, Holy Names University in nearby Oakland, California, was also shuttered in 2023. The cause cited was "declining enrollment." It seems that the Lord has imparted to the fake Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church, the kiss of death. Everything Newchurch touches, whether it be the Mass, the Divine Office, the Sacraments, doctrine, morality, education, or anything else once Catholic, turns to offal.
Baltimore, Maryland, was the first diocese founded in the United States and is its Primatial Diocese. Ironically, it is the diocese that was abandoned in 1962 as part of the incipient Newchurch by the founder of the Catholic Traditionalist Movement, Fr. Gommar DePauw. Fr. DePauw was a peritus at the Vatican II Council during its first session in 1962 and was so shocked by what he saw there that he left before the session concluded, quit his prestigious position in Baltimore as the Chairman of the Department of Moral Theology & Canon Law at Mount St. Mary's Major Seminary, Professor of Fundamental Dogmatic Theology, and finally Dean of Studies, and moved to New York City to found the independent Catholic Traditionalist Movement in 1964.
From there Fr. DePauw broadcasted the Traditional Latin Mass and the Traditional Catholic Faith across the United States and Canada, a feat that has never been equaled to this day. What was obvious to Fr. DePauw already in 1962 took others much longer to figure out. Even to this day, most, like the Neocon Newchurchers, the Pseudo-traditionalists with their anti-traditional and gutted "1962 Mess," and the Neo-SSPXers, are still oblivious to the fact that the apostate Newchurch of the New Order is not the Catholic Church, but was fabricated in 1964 to replace the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church, as it in fact has.
On September 5, 2023, Baltimore's Newarchbishop William Lori announced that Baltimore is about to declare bankruptcy on or after October 1 because its Newclergy has committed so many sex crimes against children that the Newarchdiocese, he claims, does not have the money to pay them all. Baltimore would be the 35th diocese in the U.S. to file for bankruptcy because of its sex crimes. The children retort that Lori is just trying to get out of his responsibility and will oppose his escape plan in court. The Newarchdiocese has "substantial assets, including a large investment portfolio. They’re going to be in for a hell of a fight," said an attorney representing the child victims raped, sodomized, and otherwise sexually assaulted by Newchurch presbyters and Newbishops. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Baltimore Sun.]
Traditional Catholics, it is clear that, like other Newchurch dioceses, the Baltimore Newarchdiocese is also trying to avoid discovery in the civil courts, which could expose a wealth of corruption and expose the names of the Newchurch presbyters and bishops involved in paedophile crimes. As the childrens' attorney said, Newchurch "has been using bankruptcy to shield their liability for child sex abuse. They’re going to make arguments that their ability to function should be preserved, so their liability for child sexual torture should be limited."
Like 33 other Newdioceses in the United States, there are so many lawsuits against the Newarchdiocese of New Orleans, Louisiana, from raped, sodomized, and otherwise sexually-assaulted children that the locus of the paganized Mardi Gras, once a religious festival, will be stripped down to nothing. The Newarchdiocese has already declared bankruptcy and will be forced to sell off much of its vast real-estate holdings to the tune of 77,000,000 USD.
That amount will jump to accord with current market value, and the value of properties owned by individual churches and other entities will be added to that amount. The properties will be marketed off starting before the end of September 2023. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by New Orleans Times-Picayune.]
Traditional Catholics, even as the bankruptcy proceedings have continued since May 2020, the court has been deluged with mounting claims of sex crimes against children by New Orleans Newchurch clergy. Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust continues unabated. The Louisiana State Legislature rescinded the statute of limitations under which Newchurch clergy thought that it could get away with its rampage involving the most vile sex crimes against children. Newchurch has run out of luck, out of money, and out of members.
Francis-Bergoglio has indicated in recent days that he knows a substantial number of his own Newchurchers stand openly against him. His Marxist/Modernist stratagems are becoming well known. That has led the "Dictator" Newpope to resort to the tactic of all dictators: secrecy. The hypocritical Chief Ideologue doesn't want "ideology" at his Synod. Thus, the apostate Newpope Bergoglio announced on September 3, 2023, that his "Great Synod of Synods, his Vatican III Anti-council (October 4-29, 2023), which will destroy any semblance of Catholicism in Newchurch, will be held in secret. Changes in Newchurch doctrine will concern installing deaconesses and priestesses; accepting homosexuality, sodomy, lesbianism, transsexualism, and other "queer" isms (their word); abolishing the requirement of celibacy for Newclergy of Newchurch, which since 1968 has not ordained priests, but merely installed Protestant-style ministers, officially called "presbyters."
In this, Bergoglio shows himself to be no pope, no Catholic, no Christian. Our Lord clearly set the example for his pretender "vicar," saying to the pope (in the person of the High Priest Caiphas), "I have spoken openly to the world.... and in secret I have spoken nothing" (John 18:20/DRV). International journalists will be given only unattributed "updates," managed by Bergoglio's propaganda arm. Bergoglio was already denounced for his secrecy even before he left Buddhist Mongolia, where, on yet another papal junket, he preached from Buddhist texts, not the Holy Bible. Bergoglio, a "climate change" fanatic, announced that he wanted to guarantee the "synodal climate," whatever in Hades that means, by keeping the meeting closed to the media and public.
Even Pope John XXIII held his Vatican II Council in the open. He ordered that those who addressed the Council speak only in the Church's language, Latin, with no translation, in order that all of the Council Fathers from all over the world could understand. Vatican II did not go fully awry until John's death in 1963, as for the duration of the session, he was gravely ill with stomach cancer. It was the First Apostate Newpope, the Marxist/Modernist Paul VI-Montini (1963-1978), who signed every one of the sixteen Vatican II Anti-council's documents. John signed not a single document of Vatican II. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Associated Press.]
Traditional Catholics, opposition to Francis-Bergoglio, even among his own Newcardinals, Newbishops, Newclergy, and Newlaity, is growing stronger and bolder, with several of his top officials openly calling him a heretic and in no way a Catholic pope. Talk of schism within Newchurch is again growing. Membership in Newchurch has taken a nosedive since his Newpapacy, and attendance at the fake (invalid) Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New Mess" has sunk into the single digits.
It seems that the Newpopes' fascination with extraterrestrials is exceeded only by their love of atheistic Buddhism. Buddhism is not really a religion, but a glorification of self, contemplating one's own navel, as it were. JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and Francis-Bergoglio all played the sycophant to this pagan sect and never fail to celebrate Buddha's birthday each year with a formal love-note to the Dalai Lama.
On September 3, 2023, while bringing the Newchurch heresy to Mongolia, of all places, Bergoglio preached at a syncretistic meeting, traditionally condemned by Catholic popes, populated with Buddhists, Shamans, Shintoists, Baha'is, and other pagan sectarians, with a sprinkling of Seventh-day Adventists, and Mormons for good measure. Shamans, for example, enter trances to become possessed. They also practice animal sacrifice, particularly of horses, and worship idols. In Mongolia is a boy believed by this congeries to be the tenth reincarnation of the squatting fatman, Buddha. Reincarnation is heresy to true Catholics, strongly condemned by St. Paul in his Epistles. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]
Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio preached the Oecumenical Heresy to perfection, basing his "homily" on the collection of the sayings of Buddha known as the Dhammapada. This is the Vatican II Anti-council's Heresy of Oecumenism ("we all worship the same gods"; "all religions are true") taken to the extreme. It was thanks to Josef Ratzinger (later aka Newpope Benedict), no "traditionalist" he, who personally introduced this heresy into the Anti-council.
It was five years ago, on September 3, 2023, that a case of a paedophile priest-presbyter from the Neo-Society of St. Pius X (not Archbishop Lefebvre's original SSPX, but the one "reorganized" by Bernie Fellay after his death to be more compatible with the Newchurch of the New Order) became public when the name popped up in a 2018 Pennsylvania grand jury report on sex crimes perpetrated by Newchurch presbyters.
One "Father" Benedict Van der Putten was operating at the Neo-SSPX's St. Aloysius Retreat, hidden away deep in the Santa Cruz mountains of California. At the retreats held there, always in the militaristic Ignatian fashion, never in the spiritual Franciscan or Dominican fashion, Van der Putten could operate beneath the radar. In the grand-jury report, Van der Putten was outed for committing "indecent acts" with a 15-year-old girl, sexually assaulting another girl, and attempting to assault a third girl. The Neo-SSPX then engaged in a cover-up, spiriting Van der Putten off to the bosom of the its seminary in Econe, Switzerland, out of the reach of the Santa Clara County Sheriff. There is no evidence that the Neo-SSPX ever contacted police about the incidents, described as "predatory behavior." Then the Society quietly expelled its priest-presbyter, without notifying the local community about his "obviously deplorable and indefensible" acts, including exposing himself to the girls.
Benedict-Ratzinger's Newvatican was quite well aware of Van der Putten's acts and also failed to notify the Sheriff. In fact, Ratzinger gave Van der Putten a "Celebret" (permission to simulate the pseudo-traditional 1962 Mess publicly). After a stay in Hawaii, Van der Putten, last heard from in February 2021, had broken his vows and sired four bastard children, after which he "divorced" and moved to Oklahoma. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the San Jose Mercury News.]
Traditional Catholics, now, five years later, locals have not forgotten the Neo-SSPX paedophile priest-presbyter Benedict Van der Putten and the cover-up by Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX and Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch of the New Order At last report the Neo-SSPX is still under investigation by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation (KBK) concerning paedophile crimes. The closer Bernie Fellay and his puppet David Pagliarani gets to joining the Newchurch of the New Order, the more it partakes of Newchurch's grievous sins. The Neo-SSPX cannot be considered a "traditional" Catholic group, but a front for the Newchurch of the New Order, which it has never given up its longing to join.
All the Newpopes of the Newchurch of the New Order, Unsaint Paul VI-Montini, Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla, Benedict-Ratzinger, and especially Francis-Bergoglio, have been denounced by Clodovis Boff, a former leader of Marxist Liberation Theology movement in Newchurch, which thrust the Newjesuits of Latin America into secular politics, by which leaders of conservative governments there were assassinated by the Newjesuits, who physically took up arms with a maniacal regressivism.
Although the other three Newpopes were not actually members of the movement, Francis-Bergoglio is. In fact, he prides himself upon being a Marxist Newjesuit, admitting in his autobiography that he hid the works of Karl Marx and other Communist revolutionaries under his pillow in the Newseminary that he attended. This Marxist Liberation Theology took over after the Vatican II Anti-council had founded the Newchurch of the New Order in 1964 to replace the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church.
Boff revealed that Marxist Liberation Theology is at the root of the decline of Catholicism in Brazil, who also took a swipe at his leader, Bergoglio, in claiming that he is making his favorite subject, the "climate crisis," the center of Newchurch instead of Christ. Bergoglio has just announced that he will release on October 4, 2023, yet another encyclical letter on fancied "global warming," not on Christ, the the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Holy Angels, or the Saints. That date is the feastday of St. Francis of Assisi, whom Bergoglio has metamorphosed into some kind of New Age Environmental God.
When Marxist Liberation Theology was pushed by Newchurch and the Newjesuits in the late 1960s, 90 per cent of Brazilians were Newchurchers. Now that number stands at barely half, most of whom don't even attend Newchurch Protestant-Masonic-Pagan services, a mere 8 per cent. Many Brazilians have become pagans and even Satanists. The Newcathedral in Rio de Janiero features numerous Satanic representations. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic News Agency.]
Traditional Catholics, phony "eucharistic" festivals featuring fake (invalid) cookies and Kool Aid -- because Newchurch hasn't ordained priests or had a Mass since 1968, when it adopted an invalid Protestantized and Paganized Ordinal and Mess -- are not going to bring back the True Church. The True Church is not to be found in the Newchurch of the New Order, even as Francis-Bergoglio has been introducing the new pagan fertility goddess Pachamama throughout Latin America to replace the Blessed Virgin Mary, even installing a Pachamama idol in St. Peter's Archbasilica. True Catholics must seek out independent, fully Traditional Catholic churches, chapels, and oratories that have no association with the apostate Newchurch of the New Order and its Newpopes.
On August 30, 2023, the most notorious paedophile Newchurch cardinal, Theodore McCarrick, Newarchbishop of Washington, D.C., has gotten off scot free. This man raped and sodomized Newchurch children and young Newseminarians up and down the East Coast of the United States for years. A Massachusetts federal district judge dismissed the charges, claiming that McCarrick is now non compos mentis. The child involved in this particular case was 14. McCarrick sexually assaulted him while officiating at a wedding. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]
Advocates for the sexually-assaulted children condemned the decision as part of Newchurch's "cynical strategy of cover-up," further stating:
McCarrick’s predations were an open secret. Many of his fellow [New]cardinals and [New] bishops knew, and they did nothing. They didn't report him to law enforcement, they didn't go public with the information, and they didn't reach out to those he assaulted. McCarrick might have been prosecuted years ago if even one of his brother [New]bishops had called the police. Instead, yet again, a predator has evaded accountability. While the institution may have been spared the embarrassment of an ex-cardinal on trial, the disgrace of its complicity with McCarrick remains.
Traditional Catholics, Theodore McCarrick was a powerful figure in ecclesiastical, diplomatic, and political circles in the United States and around the world. McCarrick's grave crimes were covered up by the First Paedophile Newpope, JPII-Wojtyla; the Second Paedophile Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger; and the Third Paedophile Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio, because McCarrick did fundraising for them. And, with Newchurch sinking into bankruptcy, the Newpopes need every cent that they can get, even sinking to embezzlement and reliance on paedophile Newchurch clergy to keep their corrupt Newchurch and their own Newpapal regimes alive. The Newpopes have incurred the penalty of death for complicity in such crimes, as provided by St. Paul in his Epistle to the Romans (1:32). How vile is the Newchurch of the New Order! No true Catholic can have anything to do with it.
Dear TRADITIO Fathers:
Can Satan fabricate phony miracles to deceive the faithful? There seem to be so many of these hawked these days, like bleeding Novus Ordo cookies, possessed seers at purported apparition sites like Medjugorge and Garbandal, etc.
THE TRADITIO FATHERS REPLY.
Absolutely. Both Sacred Scripture (The Bible) and the Saints warn of this. That is why "miracles" are not required to be believed, except those recorded in Scripture. Outside of these, you are not a heretic if you choose not to believe apparitions, miracles, etc. The bedrock teaching of the Catholic Church is that public revelation, i.e., Sacred Scripture and Sacred Tradition, contains everything needed for salvation. There are many false miracles being shoveled out to clueless Newchurchers to sell expensive books, tours, etc.
Our Lord Himself warned us that fake "miracles" can be used by Satan to deceive: "For there shall arise false Christs and false prophets and shall shew great signs and wonders, insomuch as to deceive (if possible) even the elect" (Matthew 24:24/DRV). Beware!

The apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio praised Communist Dorothy Day (1897-1980) in the Preface that he personally wrote to a republication of her 1938 autobiography, released August 22, 2023, by Bergoglio's own printing press, Libreria Editrice Vaticana. Bergoglio has indicated that he wants to make the Communist a spurious Newchurch "(Un)saint," to join the Communist Oscar Romero (1917-1980), whom he "con-anized" (Newchurch does not have valid canonizations) in 2018.
Day has impeccable credentials as a Communist. She was Managing Editor of the Communist Catholic Worker newspaper, which took its name from the contemporary Communist "Social Worker": newspaper. She was a supporter of Fidel Castro, the murderous Communist dictator of "that imprisoned island" of Cuba, as U.S. President J.F. Kennedy called it. Day stated plainly in 1961: "We are on the side of the [Communist] revolution." Day was in addition a proponent of the fabricated Leftist construct called "social justice." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic News Agency.]
Traditional Catholics, Day was in addition a radical feminist and -- oh yes -- had an abortion. All in all, a perfect candidate for Newchurch (Un)saint! Bergoglio has been churning them out like there's no tomorrow. Who knows but that Bergoglio's favorite heretic, Martin Luther, will be proposed again for (Un)sainthood?
On a recent business trip, I visited Newchurch's Metropolitan Cathedral of St. Sebastian in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, designed in the typically ghastly style of the New Order between 1964, the year the Newchurch of the New Order was concocted at the Vatican II Anti-council, and 1979. Although the huge Newcathedral was built to hold 22,000 people, the Mess, even on Sunday, is simulated for the decimated congregation of not even 50 remaining Newchurchers. This Mess is not simulated on the high table (formerly altar), but is relegated to a small, plain, side chapel in the back.
The Newcathedral features Satanic imagery inside, for example serpents in the stained-glass windows and serpents around the cross. The Newcathedral is also fashioned in the form of a pagan Mayan pyramid, or rather a Babylonian ziggurat, like those on which the Old Testament relates the pagans offered sacrifice, which at times included child sacrifice, to the demonic god Baal. Moreover, the former, traditional cathedral was directly attached to a Third Order Carmelite convent. The Newcathedral rejected continuing that religious association.
The Newcathedral cannot even gather a few members to sing the Gregorian chant, so loudspeakers blare recorded Gregorian chants throughout the building -- a tacit acknowledgment that people instinctively know what is actually good, beautiful, and true -- even if Newchurch can't provide it.
The Jesuit Order incurred the ire of the Catholic Church and the papacy in the 18th and 19th centuries when it engaged in open secular political politicking, interfering in the internal affairs of Catholic countries. Pope Clement the XIV was so enraged against the order that he issued the Papal Bull "Dominus ac Redemptor" and expelled the Jesuits from the Catholic Church for 41 years, from 1773 to 1814.
The Jesuits are known for their political involvement, condemned under Canon Law. In the 1960s, around the time of the Vatican II Anti-council, the order, now reeking of Marxism as "Newjesuits," turned murderous, actively taking up arms against conservative governments in Latin America. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by The Angelus.]
Traditional Catholics, now, it seems, the Newjesuists are up to their old tricks, engaging even in terrorism. On August 16, 2023, the government of Nicaragua declared the Newjesuit university "a center of terrorism" and an "organizer of criminal groups" and shut down completely. The government also expelled the order out of the country and froze its assets. Naturally, the Marxist Newjesuits whine that they are being treated unjustly. Or just maybe the Nicaraguan government is exhibiting courage against the corrupt order that other countries have yet to show.
