Here Come the Deaconesses!
Thirteen Were just "Ordained" in Germany with Francis-Bergoglio's Support

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Newchurch Starts Installing "Deaconesses"
Even Newchurch's Own Unsaint
JPII-Wojtyla Declared, Supposedly "Infallibly"
That Women Could Not Be Ordained
This Latest Move, Supported by Francis-Bergoglio
Is Obviously the Camel's Nose under the Tent
To Introduce First Deaconesses
Then Priestesses and Bishopesses
Into the Newchurch of the New Order
Which Is Most Certainly NOT
The Catholic Church

Newbishop Ludger Schepers, of Essen, Germany, on March 18, 2024, "ordained" thirteen deaconesses, who had completed a three-year course approved by the German (New)bishops' Conference and its President. Schepers was appointed by the German Newbishops' Conference as its first "commissioner for queer pastoral care." Yes, indeed, Newchurch is officially "queer."

The lead deaconess admitted that Newchurch is all politics and that the "ordinations" are a "political sign." The women showed absolutely no inclination to follow Catholic teaching, but vilified it. The President of the Conference, Newbishop Georg Batzing, threw "blessings" all around, just like the fake sodomite blessings approved by the apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio in his December 18, 2024, directive "Ecclesia supplicans." The Conference on March 11 had already declared that "transsexuals" should not be barred from the New Order presbyterate.

The "deaconesses" are already performing deacon functions, like Initiations (formerly called Baptisms). Newchurch Initiations have already been denounced as invalid in many circles. The apostate Newpope Bergoglio has already indicated his impending approval for deaconesses worldwide. Yet his apostate predecessor, JPII-Wojtyla, declared, supposedly "infallibly," that women cannot validly be ordained. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]

Traditional Catholics, the dogma of the Catholic Church, based upon Scripture and Tradition, is that women cannot be ordained -- ever. But that doesn't stop the apostate Newpopes, who are not Catholic, nor is the Newchurch of the New Order the Catholic Church. Newchurch's apostasy simply grows deeper and deeper.

Supreme Court Rules that "Catholic Charities" Is neither Religious nor a Charity
Because "Catholic Charities" Is Not Religious in Nature, It Must Pay Taxes

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Catholic Charities

"Catholic Charities" Has Been Ruled
By the Supreme Court of Wisconsin
To Be a Secular Organization
Not a Religious One
Because It Doesn't Even Provide
"Religious Materials, Worship
Religious Instruction or Evangelization
It Does, However, Use Government Funds
To Aid and Abet "Migrant Crime"

On April 25, 2024, the Supreme Court of Wisconsin caught the apostate Newchurch of the New Order flatfooted when it courageously ruled that the organization called "Catholic Charities" is neither religious nor a charity. For some time now it has been known that "Catholic Charities" is merely a Leftist front group that uses government funds to aid and abet "migrant crime." It operates under the auspices of the Newchurch of the New Order, which poses as the Catholic Church, but is in fact a criminal organization, currently facing any number of lawsuits for illegal activity.

In a March 14, 2024, decision, the Supreme Court found that "Catholic Charities" is, in fact, a secular, not a religious organization. The court ruled that four other "charities" affiliated with the Newchurch of the New Order also failed the religion test. A "religious organization" under the law is one "operated primarily for religious purposes and operated, supervised, controlled, or principally supported by a church or convention or association of churches.” Newchurch itself submitted a form in which it did not describe the nature of its operations as "religious." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, the Supreme Court of Wisconsin finally had the courage to rule that "Catholic Charities" did not have motives that are religious in nature, but merely operates services similar to those offered by nonreligious organizations. The Court pointed to the fact that "Catholic Charities" never even provided program participants with "religious materials, worship, religious instructions, or evangelization." In order words, "Catholic Charities" is a fraud, just as is the Newchurch of the New Order itself, which is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church."

Newbishop Stika, Who Covered up a Sexual Assault and Was Forced Out
Has "Returned from the Grave" to Intimidate His Accusers

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Richard Stika

Newbishop Richard Stika
Of Knoxville, Tennessee
Was Forced out for Interfering
With a Sex-crime Investigation
A Year Later He Was Still Caught
Intimidating Witnesses in the Case
He May Now Face Criminal Prosecution
For Witness Tampering

It's a miracle! (No, it isn't.) Newbishop Richard Stika, of Knoxville, Tennessee, has been out of his Newbishopric for a year, but has now "returned from the grave," as it were, to intimidate the witnesses against him in a scandalous homosexual rape cover-up. The story is that a Newseminarian of Sitka's raped a Newdiocesan employee, and Sitka then interfered with the investigation. Numerous complaints of Stika's cover-ups of sexual assaults by his personnel had piled up.

Eventually, Stika was forced out in June 2023, but Francis-Bergoglio refused to discipline his corrupt Newbishop or expel him from the Newchurch clergy. This is the apostate Newpope's standard operating procedure. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Knox News.]

Traditional Catholics, now a year later, Stika has has been caught trying to threaten and intimidate three witnesses in the case. When Stika's actions were revealed in the press, he backed off. For the victims of Stika's intimidations, this has been Stika's modus operandi, which led to his original ouster. According to one of the lawyers in the case, witness intimidation can turn into a criminal matter for Stika, who is accused of trying to influence the outcome of a court case. These corrupt Newbishops never give up. They are truly what the Bible calls "a brood of vipers" (Matthew 3:7/DRV).

Presbyter-pastor Who Objected to a Sodomite Reading a "Gay" Book to His Newparish Preschoolers
Is Canned by Newchurch, as the Apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio Has Approved "Gay Marriage/Civil Unions"

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Sodomite Protest

Pro-Sodomite Newchurchers Demonstrate
To Expel Their Presbyter-pastor
At St. Joseph the Workman Newparish & Newschool
Because He Objected when a Sodomite Author
Read a "Gay" Book to the Preschoolers There
The Real Perpetrator in This Scenario
Is the Pretender Newpope Francis-Bergoglio
Who Has Given His Approval to Sodomite Marriages
Euphemistically Called "Civil Unions"
Yet the Newchurchers Are Too Cowardly
To Point the Finger at the Apostate Newpope

Newchurch is now so pro-gay that it cannot tolerate anyone who does not tow the gay line. So discovered presbyter-pastor Thomas Held, of St. Joseph the Worker Newparish & Newschool in Beal City, Michigan, who objected when he discovered that a sodomite author read his "gay" book to preschool children in his Newparish school. The sodomite lobby ramped up with a series of protest rallies, and eventually Newbishop Robert Gruss capitulated and announced on April 16, 2024, that Held was out.

The author in question, Dominic Thrasher, is a notorious sodomite, who entered into a "civil union" with another man, in accordance with Francis-Bergoglio's permission for sodomites to "marry" in civil unions. Members of the Newparish objected, but were too cowardly to point the finger at the real perpetrator, Bergoglio himself. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Associated Press.]

Traditional Catholics, the Newchurch of the New Order, currently headed by Newpope Bergoglio, is most certainly not the Catholic Church, but an apostate, morally-bankrupt organization whose purpose is to destroy true religion. Bergoglio has shamelessly pushed the sodomite and transsexual political agenda, and the lay Newchurchers, who have allowed themselves to be bamboozled by the fraudulent Newchurch and its fake Newpopes, say not one word against the pretender Newpope. In God's justice, they get what they deserve: no Catholic Church, no Mass, no Sacraments, no morality, no grace -- just a sewer of their own making.

"Catholic Charities" Caught Fencing Charitable Funds
To Hide Illegal Invaders throughout the United States

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Illegal Invaders

"Catholic Charities" Has Been Exposed
As Using Charitable Funds
To Traffic Illegal Invaders
Throughout the United States
Two U.S. Congressmen Have Fingered
The Newchurch "Charity" as Abetting Crime
Including the Possible Murder
Of U.S. Citizens

Any notion that "Catholic Charities" is either Catholic or a charitable has been blown to smithereens by an April 20, 2024, expose that the notorious Newchurch organization has been using government funds to traffic and hide illegal invaders throughout the United States. So, not only is Catholic Charities a scam, but it is abetting crime, including the possible murder of U.S. citizens.

Two U.S. Congressmen, Henry Cuellar and Monica de la Cruz, accused Catholic Charities of the crimes. Cuellar said the funds were intended for food and shelter, not to fly the illegal invaders around the U.S. Because the funds are being used to transport illegals across state lines, Catholic Charities may be found guilty of violating federal statutes. A Catholic Charities official admitted that "it was a huge amount of money spent." [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Catholic News Agency.]

Traditional Catholics, for years now Newchurch groups have been functioning like sieves, serving as conduits for disseminating government money for illegal purposes, reportedly totaling tens of millions of dollars. Newchurchers thinking that their donations are going to help their sick grandmothers in the United States and the like are being bamboozled. Donations to Newchurch charities should be completely cut off as a scam.


Francis-Bergoglio Continues Persecuting "Traditionalist" Carmelite Nuns in Texas
In Turn, They Have Barred Him and His Representatives from Their Monastery Indefinitely

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Mother Superior Teresa Agnes Gerlach
Of the Monastery of the Most Holy Trinity
"Traditionalist" Discalced Carmelite Nuns
In Debilitated Health
Has Been Viciously Persecuted
Together with Her Nuns
By Newpope Francis-Bergoglio
Bergoglio and His Local Newbishop
Apparently Want to Scatter
The Nuns and Appropriate
Their Monastery and Donations
The Nuns Have Retailiated by Barring Bergoglio
From Trespassing on Their Monastery Property

Courage sometimes comes from the strangest places. A community of "traditionalist" Carmelite nuns in Arlington, Texas, who are being viciously persecuted by Francis-Bergoglio, have told the pretender Newpope to go pound sand. On April 22, 2024, they barred him and his Newbishop from entering the Carmelite monastery on pain of being arrested as trespassers. It appears that the nuns may have finally had it with the apostate Newchurch of the New Order, which has been mercilessly browbeating the handicapped Mother Superior and her nuns. And the nuns are getting a good deal of support against Bergoglio.

Bergoglio through his Newbishop Michael Olson, of Fort Worth, Texas, has been trying to dissolve the Carmelites into a "monastery association," by which they will lose their traditionalist identity. Bergoglio hates the Catholic Faith, hates religious, especially nuns, and hates justice. Bergoglio and Olson have told despicable lies about the Mother Superior, who lies in a hospital bed, drugged from an operation, and physically incapable of committing the acts of which she was accused to get her out as head. Her nuns have stood unequivocally behind her. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, the nuns have charged Bergoglio and Olson of engineering a "hostile takeover" of the monastery through surreptitious means. Bergoglio has tried to replace the Mother Superior with a creature of his own appointment, who would have the power to sell off the monastery and abscond with the money and property of the monastery. The nuns will have none of Bergoglio's stratagem, and many of the monastery's loyal benefactors will have none of it either. The whole situation is reminiscent of a similar ploy to purloin the property of the Nuns of the Immaculate Heart of Mary in Los Angeles, California, and several similar traditionalist monasteries.

Francis-Bergoglio Reinstates in Pontifical Yearbook Presbyter Who Assaulted 20 Nuns
Marko Rupnik Was Expelled by the Newjesuits, but Remains a Favorite of Bergoglio

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Marko Rupnik & Francis-Bergoglio

Marko Rupnik, a Known Favorite of Bergoglio
Once Excommunicated for Solicitation in the Confessional
And Charged with Twenty Sexual Assaults of Novus Ordo Nuns
Has Been Reinstated in the 2024 Pontifical Yearbook
As a Consultant to the Unholy See
The Notorious Rupnik's Scandalous Mosaics
Are Now Being Torn down from Newchurches
All around the World

Presbyter Marko Rupnik was expelled from the Newjesuits and was supposed to have been sidelined from clerical functions, but the favorite of Francis-Bergoglio has turned up again in the 2024 Pontifical Yearbook as a Consultant to the Dicastery for Divine [Sic] Worship. Newvatican has not commented on why he was reinstated.

Rupnik had been charged with sexually assaulting twenty Novus Ordo "nuns." Bergoglio has several times intervened to exonerate the infamous Newchurch artist, whose mosaics have caused scandal throughout the world. In 2020 Rupnik had been excommunicated from Newchurch for violations pertaining to the grave sin of "solicitation" in the confessional. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by ACI Prensa.]

Traditional Catholics, once again we have a case of Francis-Bergoglio shielding a criminal presbyter, in this case a favorite of his, from the consequences of grave sin and crimes. The Catholic Church was once lauded for its fair administration of justice. No longer. Under the Newpopes since 1963, Newprelates and presbyters have been given a free pass for rape, sodomy, embezzlement, and other high crimes. Victims, particularly children, have been crying out for justice, but rarely, if ever, receive it from Newchurch and its pretender Newpopes.

A Reader Asks: "Are Traditional Catholics Permitted to Attend Weddings
Of Baptized Catholics Who Have Left the Faith and Are Attempting Marriage outside the Church?"

From: Lynn
Invalid Marriage

According to the Sixth Precept of the Church
Catholics Attempting Marriage "outside the Church"
Are Entering into an Invalid Marriage
If, in Addition, Such Persons Attempt an Invalid Marriage
Before a Minister of a Non-Catholic Sect or Civil Official
They Incur Automatic Excommunication

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

Are Traditional Catholics permitted to attend engagement parties, marriage ceremonies, wedding receptions, showers, pre parties, etc., or to give money or wedding gifts for baptized Catholics who have left the Faith and are marrying outside the Church?


By canon law (traditional Codex Iuris Canonici), Catholics are bound to marry according to the precepts of the Church. You probably know this already from what in traditional catechisms is referred to as the Sixth Precept of the Church. Thus, Catholics attempting marriage "outside the Church" are violating this precept and entering into an invalid marriage. If, in addition, such persons attempt an invalid marriage before a minister of a non-Catholic sect or a civil official, they incur automatic excommunication.

Obviously, a true Catholic cannot participate in such affair. Such persons have made their choice and know (or should know) the consequences of that choice, that there will be sincere Catholics who will not participate. You have every right to exempt yourself from the affair. If you are put in a situation where you must explain your absence, do so, but avoid getting into "wrangling" with such people, who will probably not understand. Simply state the reason and move on. If you have the opportunity, encourage such people to seek out the advice of a traditional Catholic priest.

This traditional Catholic teaching is no different from the position of sincere Protestants when it comes to a Christian attempting to marry a pagan, or from the position of an observant Jew when it comes to a Jew attempting to marry a Christian.

Ratzingerian Newcardinal Leaves College of Newcardinals
Radical Leftist Buddy of Francis-Bergoglio Takes All the Power

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Luis Francisco Ladaria Ferrer

Another Ratzingerian Leaves the College of Newcardinals
Luis Francisco Ladaria Ferrer Loses His Vote
And Is Replaced by a Bergoglian
In the Next Newpapal Election
To Wit, Viktor Manuel Fernandez
A Wild Radical Pagan
And Bergoglio's Ghost Writer

On April 19, 2024, Newjesuit Newcardinal Luis Francisco Ladaria Ferrer reaches the age of eighty and loses his place as a voting member in the College of Newcardinals. Although appointed by Benedict-Ratzinger, Laderia Ferrer is a Bergoglian. Bergoglio cast out Newcardinal Gerhard Muller as Newprefect for the Doctrine of the [New Order] Faith in 2017, when there was no clear candidate to replace Ladaria Ferrer. Therefore, Bergoglio reluctantly allowed Laderia's Secretary to succeed him as Newprefect ad interim. But Ladaria Ferrer took the same positions as his previous master, Gerhard Muller. For example, he made a clear statement against blessings for sodomites.

In 2023 Bergoglio replaced Ladaria Ferrer with the wild radical pagan Viktor Manuel Fernandez, truly a fellow-traveler with Bergoglio and his ghost-writer. This week, Ladaria Ferrer will lose his remaining influence. Following his departure from among the voting Newcardinals, the next five Newcardinals who will pass the age of eighty this year are all appointees of the previous two Newpopes. They include Marc Ouellet, Sean O'Malley, and Mauro Piacenza. Virtually all of those who might support a Newpope Gerhard Muller or a Newpope Robert Sarah will be gone before 2024 is out.

The next Newpope will be cut from the same cloth as Ladaria Ferrer is. Hence. NewChurch will move all the more surely into complete paganism in the near future.

Latest Pew Research Study Proves that Newchurchers Are Most Certainly NOT Catholics
They Want to Change Newchurch Teaching to Make It More Heretical than the Protestants

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Newchurch Heretics

A New Pew Study Shows
That Newchurchers Are Becoming
More Like Possessed People
They Want a Completely Different Religion
Filled with Immorality, Priestesses
Sodomites and Lesbians
But They Don't Want to Do the Honest Thing
And Found a New Sect
They Want to Abuse the Newchurch Structure
To Make It Serve Their Own Immoral Ends

A Pew Research Study released on April 12, 2024, has proven once again that Newchurchers, although they lie and call themselves "Catholic" (like the pro-gay and pro-abortion "devout Catholic" U.S. President J.R. Biden), are now actually far worse heretics than Protestants. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

  1. 83 per cent of Newchurchers said that they favored a change of the Newchurch teaching on contraception. FACT: The true Catholic Church has no authority to change God's moral doctrine.
  2. 75 per cent of Newchurchers said that Newchurch should allow them to munch the fake (invalid) cookie and swill the fake Kool-Aid even if they are living in sin with a paramour. FACT: The true Catholic Church has no authority to change moral doctrine.
  3. 69 per cent of Newchurchers said that presbyters (Newchurch has not ordained priests since 1968) should be allowed to break their vow of celibacy and "get married." FACT: The true Catholic Church has no authority to change Apostolic teaching.
  4. 64 per cent of Newchurchers said that women should be allowed to become priestesses. FACT: The true Catholic Church has no authority to change Sacred Scripture. Even the Unsaint Newpope JPII-Wojtyla decreed that fact.
  5. 54 per cent of Newchurchers said that the Newchurch should recognize the marriages of sodomites and lesbian "couples." FACT: The true Catholic Church has no authority to change God's moral doctrine.

Traditional Catholics, Newchurchers have to be deaf, dumb, and blind not to recognize that their Newchurch of the New Order is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church, but in fact more heretical that Martin Luther's sect. Newchurch does not bear the four marks of the true Church: one, holy, catholic, and apostolic. Therefore, by Catholic and Apostolic dogma Newchurch cannot be the true Church. It's as simple as that.

The Primatial See of the United States Is Sinking into Oblivion
Baltimore, Maryland, Is Cutting out Two-thirds of Its Newparishes

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
St.  Vincent de Paul Church

St. Vincent de Paul Church in Baltimore
The Oldest Catholic Parish, Founded in 1841
Will Be among the Two-thirds of Churches
Being Closed in the Newchurch Diocese
Before the Vatican II Anti-council
250,000 Catholics Attended Mass
Now that Number Has Sunk to 2,000
Since Newchurch Has Taken Over
And Perpetrated the Fake "New Mess"
And the Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust

Newchurch's demise has hit the primatial see of the United States, Baltimore, Maryland. This was the first see established in the United States, in 1789, the same year in which George Washington was elected President. Baltimore was also the home diocese of the founder of the Catholic Traditionalist Movement, Fr. Gommar DePauw, who in 1963 saw that Newchurch was taking over the Catholic Church and established the Catholic Traditionalist Movement in the Pan American Building in New York. From there he transmitted the true Catholic faith and Mass all over North America, directly butting heads with Unsaint Paul VI-Montini's Newchurch and the corrupt Newcardinal of Baltimore, Lawrence Shehan.

On April 14, 2024, the Newchurch diocese of Baltimore announced that it was shuttering two-thirds of its Newparishes. The primatial Newdiocese will have only 21 churches left. Just before the Vatican II Anti-council in 1964, that number was 138. One of the principal causes of the closures, according to the Newdiocese, is that fewer and fewer Newchurchers are bothering to attend the invalid (fake) Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Vatican II Mess of 1969. "We could not continue to ignore the decline in M[e]ss attendance."

Baltimore has been devastated by Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust, under the regimes of the First Paedophile Newpope, Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla; the Second Paedophile Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger; and most especially by the Third Paedophile Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio. In September 2023 Baltimore declared bankruptcy. Newarchbishop William Lori looks forward to selling and converting the church properties into gymnasia and illegal-invader service centers. "Their days as houses of weekly worship would be over," but in fact Baltimore has not had a valid Catholic Mass since 1964. In a city that was once home to as many as 250,000 Catholics attending the true Mass before the Vatican II Anti-council (1962-1965), that number has fallen now to fewer than 2,000. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, the Newchurch of the New Order, founded in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council to replace the Catholic Church, is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church. It should rightfully go under for its grievous paedophile sins and its offering of fake Messes and Sacraments. The only sad aspect of Baltimore's demise is the beautiful Old World traditional church buildings that will fall to the wrecking ball. But perhaps Newchurch Baltimore will be gracious enough to turn those churches into bars and restaurants. You can be sure that bar attendance will be considerably higher than Mess attendance in Baltimore!

Francis-Bergoglio's Appointments Have Taken over Newchurch's College of Newcardinals
Newchurch Is Set to Elect a Successor Worse than Bergoglio

From: Petrus Romanus, The TRADITIO Network's Roman Correspondent

Francis-Bergoglio's Apostate Newcardinals
Have Now Taken over the College Like Maggots
To the Tune of Almost Three out of Four
But It Must Be Remembered that Newchurch
Is Most Certainly NOT the Catholic Church
The Result of the Next Newpapal Election
Is No More Important to True Catholics
Than Who Is the Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury
Or the President Bishop of the Lutheran Sect

I've done a brief calculation of what the situation will be in the College of Newcardinals on January 1, 2025, on the assumption that the present Bergoglian tyranny continues until that time. At my last report 72 per cent of the Newcardinals were elevated by Bergoglio. That percentage will rise to 77 per cent by that date, assuming that Bergoglio does not add even more Newcardinals between now and then.

It takes 67 per cent of the Newcardinals to elect a Newpope. We must also take into account the fact that many of the Newcardinals elevated by JPII-Wojtyla and Benedict-Ratzinger are fervent Modernist heretics, as they must have voted and even schemed for Bergoglio in the first place. The actual number of Neocons who oppose Bergoglio and his programme might be as low as 10 per cent by that date.

We must also remember that the most determined foes of Bergoglio in the College are really watered-down Modernist heretics themselves. As examples, Gerhard Muller rejects a literal Resurrection. Robert Sarah wants to fuse the fake (invalid) New Mess with the Half New Order New Latin Mess of 1962; and Ray Burke consecrated a transsexual man as a "nun." So these are not "traditionalists" by any stretch of the imagination.

As amusing as this numbers game may be, it must always be remembered that the Newchurch of the New Order is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church. The result of the next Newpapal election is no more important to true Catholics than who is the Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury or the Presiding Bishop of the Lutheran sect.

Head of the Neo-SSPX in the U.S. Is on Trial for Paedophile Rampage over Two Decades
Fellay's Neo-SSPX Has Tried to Cover up Its Moral Corruption, but Now It Has Exploded for All to See

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Bernie Fellay

Bernie Fellay, De-facto Superior General
Of the Neo-SSPX
Has Been Outed under Oath in a French Court
As the Mastermind behind a Cover-up
Of Rampant Sex Crimes against Children
He Has Been Acting just Like Francis-Bergoglio
Allowing His Paedophile Clergy Back into Service
Again and Again
To Commit Sexual Rampages
Across Europe and the United States
This Should Be the Death-knell
Of the Fake Neo-SSPX
Which Is Most Certainly NOT
The Original Traditional SSPX
Headed by the Saintly Archbishop Lefebvre

Taking a leaf from the book of the Paedophile Newpopes of Newchurch, Bernie Fellay's Neo-SSPX has been desperately trying to cover up its moral corruption so that its membership will not be scandalized to the point of cutting off donations. But stories have nevertheless leaked out, as from the Neo-SSPX boys' school in Gabon, from the investigation of the U.S.'s Neo-SSPX headquarters in Kansas City, Kansas, by the Kansas Bureau of Investigation, which the Neo-SSPX didn't everything to thwart.

But on April 4, 2024, the Neo-SSPX moral excrement splattered into the public as "Fr." Arnaud Rostand, U.S. District Superior from 2008 to 2014, was arrested, charged, and is now on trial in France for conducting a paedophile rampage across France, Switzerland, and Spain over a period of 16 years, from 2002 to 2018. Rostand has admitted his predations of children in Neo-SSPX schools. Because of the cult-like nature of the Neo-SSPX, anyone who questioned Fellay's actions was publicly vilified and expelled from the organization and silenced.

In a scenario just like that of Newchurch, whose Newpopes consistently appointed known paedophiles to lead its various organizations, Rostand swore under oath that Neo-SSPX Superior General Bernie Fellay was personally aware of what was going on. Rostand had told Fellay in 1998, 2000, 2006, and 2016 that he was a paedophile, but Fellay nevertheless in 2008 appointed Rostand to positions of authority in Europe and Asia, and finally, in 2008, appointed him to lead the Neo-SSPX organization as its District Superior. Fellay's puppet, "Fr." Davide Pagliarani, current Neo-SSPX Superior General in 2018, raised Rostand to become Prior of the Neo-SSPX headquarters in Menzingen, Germany, where he taught catechism to children.

Neo-SSPX U.S. District Superior Jurgen Wegner reportedly admitted that he knew of "hundreds of cases" of sex crimes against children within the Neo-SSPX. Press reports show that Neo-SSPX Superior General Bernie Fellay had a track record of allowing sex criminals to continue with the Neo-SSPX. It may be that, like the Newchurch of the New Order, he is short of "priests," so has to plumb the gutters for paedophile clergy. Numerous other Neo-SSPX sexual predations against children have come to light:

  1. In 2023 Neo-SSPX "Fr." Pierre de Maillard was convicted for sexually assaulting 27 children over the course of 25 years. Maillard was dubbed "the greatest sexual predator" in France, where Fellay's Neo-SSPX has its largest membership.
  2. In 2022 Neo-SSPX "Fr." Matthew Stafki pleaded guilty to molesting his six-year-old niece over the course of three years.
  3. In 2020 a Neo-SSPX teacher in France was convicted for sexually assaulting 13 children.
  4. In 2020 Neo-SSPX "Fr." Fredereic Abbet was apprehended and imprisoned in Switzerland for sexually assaulting more than five boys.
  5. In 2017 Neo-SSPX "Fr." Christophe Roisnel was sentenced to 19 years in prison for raping and torturing three female teachers at a Neo-SSPX academy in France. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Stella Maris Media.]

Traditional Catholics, after the saintly Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre, who headed the originally traditional Catholic SSPX organization until his death in 1991, Bernie Fellay, the least of the four bishops, took over the organization and refounded it as a Neo-SSPX, running it like a dictator, just as Francis-Bergoglio has been running the Newchurch of the New Order. At that point the Neo-SSPX lost its "traditional" designation and became a handmaiden of the apostate Newchurch and its Neopopes.

Fellay idolizes Bergoglio and wants to become part of his Newchurch organization, but enough members in the Neo-SSPX have opposed such a diabolical association with the apostate Newchurch to prevent Fellay from achieving his life's ambition: to wear the red slippers of the apostate Newchurch and kiss the feet of the Third Paedophile Newpope, Francis-Bergoglio, as he had tried to kiss the feet of the First Paedophile Newpope, Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla, and the Second Paedophile Newpope, Benedict-Ratzinger.

Neo-SSPXers, it is long past time for you to wake up! Pull your children out of anything associated with the Neo-SSPX. If you don't, you are committing a grave sin of endangering your children's safety. As for yourselves, if you continue to attend and support Fellay's Neo-SSPX, you are cooperating in the grave moral sins of this organization.

Francis-Bergoglio Fires Newbishop Pushing New Latin Mess
Peter Jurgis Is out, and All 1962 New Latin Messes in Charlotte Will Be Shut down by 2025

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Francis-Bergoglio Fires Newbishop Jurgis
With a Wry Smile
Jurgis Had Been Expanding 1962 New Latin Messes
In His Newdiocese of Charlotte, North Carolina
And Had Opened a Newseminary
For the Half New Order Rite There
By 2025 All the New Latin Mess Sites
In Charlotte Will Be Closed
Bergoglio Recently Did the Same Thing
In the Newdiocese of Arlington, Virginia

As Francis-Bergoglio continues his pogrom against the New Latin Mess, he has fired on April 10, 2024, Peter Jurgis, of Charlotte, North Carolina, who was pushing the 1962 New Latin Mass in his Newdiocese. Jurgis had also opened a Newseminary based upon the Half New Order Vatican II New Latin Mess. Bergoglio has apparently shut that down too.

Jurgis had been ordered to curtail the spread of the 1962 New Latin Mess in his Newdiocese. By 2025 the remaining four sites must be shut down in accordance with the 2021 Decree "Traditionis custodes." The Newchurchers at those sites must be trained to move over to the Protestant-Masonic-Pagan, full-blown 1969 New Mess. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by LS News.]

Traditional Catholics, Francis-Bergoglio's "Traditionis custodes" juggernaut is moving at full speed. Any Newbishops associated with the new Latin Mess of 1962 are being fired, and Mass sites shut down. Similar strictures have recently been placed on 1962 New Latin Messes in Arlington, Virginia.

California's Capital Newdiocese Announces Bankruptcy
Sacramento Is Facing Some 250 Lawsuits from Children Raped and Sodomized by Its Paedophile Presbyters

The Newdiocese Has Finally
Thrown in the Towel

Putting Its 100 Newparishes

On April 1, 2024, the Newdiocese of Sacramento, California's capital, finally threw in the towel and declared its Newdiocese bankrupt and up for grabs to pay off for sexually raping, sodomizing, and otherwise sexually assaulting at least 250 children. Sacramento thus became the 36th Newdiocese of the 196 in the United States to declare bankruptcy.

The bankruptcy filing is denounced by many supporters of the children, as it cheats them of individually-negotiated settlements. Newbishop Jaime Soto has sneakily tried to shield Newparishes and Newschools by a legal ploy, but some U.S. Bankruptcy Courts have voided such techniques. In a self-serving, canned press release, Soto moaned: "It is the sickening sin of sexual abuse.... I must atone for these sins." In fact, he is in no way atoning; it is the children who are paying the price. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, the Newdioceses of Sacramento, along with those of Los Angeles, San Francisco, San Jose, Oakland, and Orange were reported to be under subpoena by the State of California for perpetrating and suborning sex crimes by their presbyters. Newchurch's worldwide Great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust is far from over.

Latest Gallup Survey Shows that Newchurch "Mess" Attendance Has Sunk Yet Again
Hell Seems to Be Overflowing with Newchurchers since the Advent of the Pretender Newchurch in 1964

The Latest Gallup Survey Shows Newchurch
Declining Ever More Sharply, Heading toward Extinction
Not Even One in Four Newchurchers
Goes to the Invalid (Fake) New Mess Weekly
As Compared to Four out of Five in 1958
Newchurchers Have Sunk Below
Mormons, Protestants, Muslims, and Jews

According to the latest Gallup survey of U.S. Newchurchers, on March 24, 2024, Hell is becoming a very populated place! In 1958 four out of five U.S. Catholics attended Mass -- when it was actually a valid (Traditional Latin) Mass -- weekly. That number, since the fake Newchurch of the New Order took over as the "institutional" Church in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council with its invalid (fake) Protestant-Masonic-Pagan "New Mess," has dropped to not even one out of four. Newchurch needs to stop with the "white" funerals and return to its reality of black.

Since the advent of the pretender Newchurch, which is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church, Newchurchers are bested by Mormons at 67%, Protestants at 44%, Muslims at 38%, and Jews at 22%. The Modernist apostates at Vatican II and their successors have certainly accomplished what they set out to do, the destruction of the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Gallup News.]

Traditional Catholics, providentially, there are many thousands of Traditional Catholic churches, chapels, and oratories around the world, which courageously maintain the true Catholic Faith.

Francis-Bergoglio Purges the Last Remaining Conservatives in His Regime
Two Newcardinals and a Newbishop Were Canned in a "Saturday Night Massacre"

From: Petrus Romanus, The TRADITIO Network's Roman Correspondent

Francis-Bergoglio Gives the Finger
To the Last Conservatives
Remaining in His New Curia
In a "Saturday Night Massacre"
Two Newcardinals and a Newbishop
Have Been Ejected from Their Positions
The Three Had Questioned the Corruption
Of Bergoglio's Regime
And His Support of His Paedophile Intimate
The Notorious Newjesuit Marko Rupnik

Well, we knew it was coming. On April 6, 2024, Bergoglio canned on schedule Newcardinal Mauro Piacenza, the Apostolic Penitentiary. As the last conservative in the Newcuria, he has been among the critics of Bergoglio since the beginning of Bergoglio's Newpapacy, along with Newcardinals Gerhard Muller, Robert Sarah, Ray Burke, and some of the older Newcardinals who are over the age of eighty and therefore no longer entitled to vote in a Newconclave.

Piacenza was elevated to the College of Newcardinals by Benedict-Ratzinger in 2010. One of the first things Bergoglio did after his accession was to demote Piacenza. He had been Newprefect for the (New)clergy and was "kicked upstairs" to the Apostolic Penitentiary, a sinecure where the Newpopes are known to sideline their enemies. Piacenza will turn 80 on September 15, 2024, and lose his vote for the next Newpope. If there is any good in his removal, it is that it gives him more leave to censure Bergoglio, as he now has nothing left to lose. But Piacenza probably won't have the fortitude to do so.

With Piacenza's departure, there are now no conservatives left in Bergoglio's Newcuria, and the percentage of Bergoglian Newcardinals will continue to rise over the course of this year and beyond. On the same day as Piacenza, Bergoglio continued purging his regime of any who would dare to question his corruption. He canned Newcardinal Angelo De Donatis, Newcardinal-Vicar of Rome and one of his auxiliaries, Newbishop Daniele Libanon. These had demanded the ejection of the notorious Newjesuit paedophile presbyter Marko Rupnik, an intimate of the Newjesuit Newpope.

French Court Overrules and Fines Francis-Bergoglio Personal Representative for Browbeating a Nun
With the Authority and Confirmation of Bergoglio Himself

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Mother Marie

Francis-Bergoglio Threw a Venerated Nun
Out onto the Street after 34 Years in the Convent
Because She Dared to Raise Questions
About What Was Going on in the Convent
Implicated in the Contretemps Was Bergoglio's Intimate
Newcardinal Marc Ouellet
Whom a French Court Found
To Have an Inappropriate "Friendship" with a Nun
The French Court Levied Stiff Fines
Against Bergoglio's Representative and His Two Inquisitors

Francis-Bergoglio's behavior is getting so bad that some are starting to compare him to U.S. President J.R. Biden, who appears to be out of control from senile dementia. On April 3, 2024, a French court sentenced to stiff fines Bergoglio's personal representative, Newcardinal Marc Ouellet, Prefect of the Dicastery of (New)bishops, to expel the Dominican nun, Mother Marie. The court also sentenced Bergoglio's two Inquisitors for participating in the browbeating of the innocent nun. Bergoglio has established a record of hatred for nuns.

Mother Marie had exposed "serious abuses" going on in the Newchurch convent. She had been in the convent for 34 years, but because she dared to raise questions about the abusive goings-on there, Ouellet on Bergoglio's authority threw her out onto the street with no canonic reason given, according to the court. Bergoglio merely gossiped about Mother Marie having "an evil spirit." Now isn't that the pot calling the kettle black?!

The French court indicated that it had suspicions about Ouellet himself as a "close friend" (a euphemism, apparently) of another nun in the convent. Ouellet himself has been named in a Quebec court proceeding as the assailant of woman who stated that the Newcardinal committed sexual battery against her. Bergoglio has dismissed out of hand the serious charges against Ouellet, who is a known intimate of Bergoglio. What a tangled web these Newpopes and their favorites weave!

Bergoglio has, in addition, violated Newcanon law by not providing Mother Mari with financial assistance required by Newcanon law to allow her to "enjoy appropriate civil living conditions after 34 years of religious life and service to her community in the spirit of justice and charity as set out in canon law." Bergoglio regularly violates canon law, as his Newpapacy has become a worldwide laughing-stock for its hypocrisy and lawlessness. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Traditional Catholics, what is the real story here? It is a now familiar one with Bergoglio: he hates "traditionalists. Mother Marie's convent uses the New Latin Mess of 1962, not the vulgarized, invalid (fake) New Mess of 1969. In addition, Mother Marie is a noted Latinist and Mediaevalist. That is just too much for the Catholic-hating Bergoglio.

One of Last Valid Bishops Remaining Alive in Newchurch Dies
With the Passing of Thomas Gumbleton, Only Ten Remain Worldwide, All in Their Nineties

From: Petrus Romanus, The TRADITIO Network's Roman Correspondent
Thomas Gumbleton

Thomas Gumbleton, Newchurch Bishop, Dies
Known More for Leftist Politics and "Gay"
Than for Anything Catholic
Here He Sports His "Gay" Rainbow Mitre
He Was One of the Last Bishops
To Have Been Consecrated
Under the Valid Sacrament of Holy Orders
After 1968 Newchurch Switched
To a Protestantized New Ordinal
So Newchurch Bishops Became Invalid (Fake)
Just Like Protestant Bishops (Overseers)

On April 4, 2024, Thomas Gumbleton, a retired auxiliary Newchurch bishop of Detroit, Michigan, passed away at the age of 94. He was called the most Leftist Newbishop of the United States. He was ordained priest in 1956 and, at the age of 38, was consecrated bishop in 1968. Thus, he was one of the last Newchurchers to get in just under the wire to be consecrated bishop under the valid Sacrament of Holy Orders.

After that time the invalid (fake) Protestantized New Ordinal of 1968 replaced the valid Sacrament of Holy Orders in Newchurch, so no more valid priests or bishops were ordained in Newchurch, but only presbyters (like Protestant ministers) and overseers (like Protestant bishops). In 1969 the fake (invalid) Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Mess replaced the valid Traditional Latin Mass. With this double whammy, Newchurch lost the Sacraments. Later, some pseudo-traditional organizations were formed in Newchurch, under severe restrictions, like the Fraternity of St. Peter (FSSP), but their ordinations are performed by unconsecrated bishops (overseers) and are thus invalid as well. Without the true Sacraments and the true Mass Newchurch is devoid of grace.

With the death of Gumbleton, there are left in the Newchurch world only ten valid bishops left. Nine of the ten are in their nineties. The tenth, and the only one left from the pontificate of John XXIII, is Bishop Jose de Jesus Sahagun de la Parra, retired Newbishop of Ciudad Lazaro Cardenas. He is over one hundred years of age and has long ago celebrated his diamond episcopal jubilee.

All ten of the remaining pre-1968 Newbishops have associated themselves with the heresy of the Newchurch of the New Order, founded in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council to replace the Catholic Church as the "institutional" Church. As heretics, they are no longer Catholic. Thank God, the Catholic priesthood and episcopate is being courageously maintained all over the world in Traditional Catholic churches, chapels, and oratories completely independent of the Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church.

Vitus Huonder, One of Newpope Francis-Bergoglio's Unconsecrated Newchurch "Bishops"
Was Reportedly to Join the Three Neo-SSPX Bishops in the Neo-SSPX "Hierarchy"

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

What Were They Plotting?
Vitus Huonder, an Unconsecrated Newchurch "Bishop"
And the Apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio
Huonder Has Died on "Spy" Wednesday of Holy Week
It Had Been Reported that He Was to Join
The Three Remaining Neo-SSPX Bishops
In the Hierarchy of the Neo-SSPX
The Neo-SSPX even Allowed the Unconsecrated "Bishop"
To "Bless" (Invalidly) the Sacred Oils
On Maundy Thursday
An Act that Led to Neo-SSPXers Questioning
Whether the Sacraments They Were Receiving
Were even Valid

On April 3, 2024, "Spy" Wednesday of Holy Week, the Neo-Society of St. Pius X announced the death of the unconsecrated Newchurch "bishop," Vitus Huonder, who died that day at the age of 81. It had been reported that Huonder was to join the three remaining Neo-SSPX bishops -- Bernie Fellay, 66; Bernard Tissier de Mallerais, 78; Alfonso de Galarreta, 67 -- in the "hierarchy" of the Neo-SSPX. Huonder was ordained as a Newchurch presbyter (not a priest) in 1971 and installed (not consecrated) as a Newchurch bishop in 2007. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the (N)SSPX News.]

There had also been reports that the apostate Newpope Francis-Bergoglio had been open to the plan of Huonder's becoming a "bishop" in the Neo-SSPX. Huonder was already in residence at a Neo-SSPX boarding school in Switzerland and caused a scandal by invalidly "blessing" the Sacred Oils on Maundy Thursday, for the Neo-SSPX to use in the administering the Sacraments. Using unblessed oils could invalidate some Sacraments, particularly Confirmation.

Traditional Catholics, it seems that every time since the death of Archbishop Lefebvre, founder of the original traditional Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), when Bernie Fellay, who took it over and reconfigured it as the Neo-SSPX, has attempted to sell out to the Newchurch of the New Order and its pretender Newpopes, Providence has stepped in and foiled the plan. In 2012 it was widely reported that Fellay and Benedict-Ratzinger were on the verge of signing the sellout on Pentecost, but then the contretemps about the World War II Endlösung der Judischen Frage involving senior Bishop Richard Williamson at the last minute fortuitously derailed Fellay's stratagem.

Blabbermouth Francis-Bergoglio Appears to Have Broken the Seal of the Newpapal Conclaves
A Serious Crime that Carries with It the Penalty of Excommunication

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Conclave Oath

Francis-Bergoglio Took an Oath to God
That He Would Not Break the Secrecy
Of the Newpapal Conclave
Which Is Decreed even in Newchurch Law
Yet in an Interview He Twice Committed
This Excommunicable Office Which Is Binding
"Under Mortal Burden of Conscience

Francis-Bergoglio for years as a schismatic, heretic, apostate, and probably Communist, was long ago excommunicated from the true Catholic Church. In an interview on April 3, 2024, committed another excommunicable offense: he has broken the secrecy of the 2005 and 2013 Newpapal conclaves, even though he was under a public sworn oath to God. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the National Catholic Register.]

Bergoglio claims that the Newpopes "have the license" to violate the sacred secrecy of the conclave, even though Newchurch's own law prescribes what was the immemorial tradition of the Catholic Church before Newchurch replaced it in 1964.

Insuper praecipimus Cardinalibus electoribus, GRAVITER ONERATA IPSORUM CONSCIENTIA, ut secretum huiusmodi servent etiam post peractam novi Pontificis electionem, memores id nullo modo violari licere, nisi ab eodem Pontifice peculiaris et expressa ad hoc facultas concessa fuerit. (Universi Dominici Gregis, para. 60 (1996))
We decree further that the Cardinal electors, UNDER MORTAL BURDEN OF CONSCIENCE, keep secrecy concerning these matters, even after the election of the new Pope has taken place, remembering that that it is in no way permitted to violate the secrecy.

Traditional Catholics, Bergoglio's criminal and oblivious attitude toward anything Catholic is reminiscent of U.S. President Richard Nixon's statement: "If the President does it, it's not illegal." That statement got Nixon thrown out of office. It is a pity that the Newcardinals of Newchurch, which is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church, don't have the guts to throw out the pretender Unholy Father, Bergoglio, even though a recent survey found that, because of his persistent apostasy from the Catholic Faith, about half of Newchurchers don't believe that Bergoglio is a valid pope.

Uncatholic Newchurch Commits Sacrilege during Holy Week
Stages a Very Public Funeral on -- of All Sacred Days -- Holy Saturday

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Diller Funeral

The Body of Slain Police Officer Diller
Is Borne into St. Rose of Lima Newchurch
For a Sacrilegious Funeral Held on Holy Saturday
The Newchurch Mess Was, of Course, Invalid (Fake)
And Celebrated by an Unordained Presbyter, not a Priest
Officer Diller Deserved Better

Yet another example of how the Newchurch of the New Order is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church was provided by the Newchurch funeral of New York Police Department Officer Jonathan Diller, 31, who was shot and killed at a traffic stop on Monday, March 25, 2024, Holy Monday, by Guy Rivera, a career criminal with 21 convictions. The corrupt New York prosecutors and courts let Rivera out in 2021 after a mere five years in state prison.

The officer's funeral was held on March 30, at St. Rose of Lima Newchurch in Massapequa Park, Long Island, New York, It bore no relation to a traditional Catholic funeral. Of course, it was a Newchurch extravaganza, complete with political celebrities. Moreover, March 30 was Holy Saturday, one of the three holiest days in the Catholic calendar, the day when Christ after his crucifixion on Good Friday "descended into Hell [the Limbo of the Just]."

On this day,on which true Catholics meditate upon Christ's redeeming death, ancient sacred services are celebrated in the morning, and the Vigil Mass of Easter is celebrated at noon, no funerals are permitted. What is the death of a man compared to the death of God? But Newchurch, not being Catholic, doesn't understand the requirements of a Catholic funeral:

"FUNERAL MASSES ARE PROHIBITED ON THE LAST THREE DAYS [TRIDUUM SACRUM] OF HOLY WEEK AND ON EASTER SUNDAY. Should it happen that a Funeral Mass is requested for a deceased person who died, for example, on Wednesday in Holy Week..., this Mass may be said on the Monday after Easter" (Additiones et Variationes in Rubricis Missalis, Tit. iii. 4).

Sad to say, the officer's wife, who otherwise bore herself nobly and delivered a eulogy -- which is prohibited at Catholic funerals --, wore a low-cut, sleeveless dress that seemed more appropriate to a secular dinner party. But Newchurchers, not being Catholic, are ignorant of Catholic tradition and propriety in dress, even at a funeral. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by New York Post.]

Traditional Catholics, the brave officer was cheated of a true, valid (Traditional Latin) Mass, but was instead subjected to an invalid (fake) Protestant-Masonic-Pagan New Order service, celebrated not by a Catholic priest, but by an unordained Newchurch presbyter (Newchurch has not ordained priests since 1968, when it adopted a Protestantized New Ordinal). Brave Officer Jonathan Diller deserved better.

Easter Sunday, March 31, 2024, was something of a bust for Newpope Francis-Bergoglio. As has been the case in recent years, Bergoglio consistently fails to fill St. Peter's Piazza for major holydays. Reports here put the number at around a mere 60,000. You will notice that the crowd thins out noticeably when it gets to Caligula's obelisk (center), and the crowd around Bernini's fountain (left) is pretty sparse.

Compare that to the piazza under Pope Pius XII in the 1950s. At that time the population of the world was around 2 billion. Now it is nearly 8 billion. Yet Pius XII drew in packed crowds that filled the piazza and even spilled across the Vatican border into Italy onto the Via della Conciliazione.

The Newchurch of the New Order, which is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church, has been on the descent since its founding at the Vatican II Anti-council in 1964. That descent has grown steeper and steeper, with a sharp decline after January 2002, when the Boston Globe Spotlight investigation exposed to the public Newvatican's rampant corruption in its great Sex & Embezzlement Holocaust.

That Holocaust continues unabated to this day, being assisted by cover-up and complicity under the First Paedophile Newpope Unsaint JPII-Wojtyla, under the Second Paedophile Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger, when the cover-up and complicity grew exponentially, and now under the Third Paedophile Newpope Francis-Bergoglio, when they have reached a peak. Newchurch is now finally paying the price for its apostasy, immorality, and fake (invalid) "liturgies." The rate at which Newchurchers are abandoning the Newchurch of the New Order is truly breathtaking.

Many Presbyters Have Had it
They're Quitting at an Ever-increasing Rate
Tired of Being Stabbed in the Back
By Bergoglio and His Newbishops

Francis-Bergoglio has, since late 2023 and early 2024, accelerated his appointments of auxilary Newbishops. Essentially, he is packing the Newchurch episcopacy, appointing auxiliaries to unheard-of backwaters in Africa and Latin America, and to underpopulated Newdioceses in the middle of nowhere. Bergoglio's policy is obviously intended to weaken the diocesan Newbishops, so that whenever any Newbishop becomes a problem for Bergoglio, Bergoglio can simply chop off his head, as Bergoglio has quite noticeably been doing to Neocon Newbishops in the United States, Latin America, and Europe. Newbishops are now a dime a dozen, buzzing around aimlessly like maggots.

At this rate auxiliary Newbishops will outnumber diocesan Newbishops. In Newchurch it's all chiefs and no Indians, all colonels and no privates. As vocations plummet, promotions to the fake Newchurch hierarchy rise. Many presbyters have had it. They're quitting at an ever-increasing rate. They're tired of doing all the work and then being stabbed in the back by Bergoglio and his Newbishops. Each of these Newbishops gets a purple outfit, but then finds that there are few foot soldiers left to command. Each Newbishop has to look into a mirror to find a willing subordinate. Soon, the soup at Newchurch soup kitchens will be served up by auxiliary Newbishops.

And remember that these Newbishops aren't even really Catholic bishops. Newchurch, which is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church, hasn't consecrated true bishops since 1968, when it adopted the fake (invalid) Protestantized New Ordinal, which merely "installs" overseers, like the Episcopalian, Lutheran, and other heretic sects.

Hardly a day goes by but that some Newchurch presbyter, Newbishop, Newcardinal, or even Newpope is caught and arrested in the embezzlement of Newchurch funds. Even Newchurch "nuns" have stolen money from Newchurch collections and taken off to Las Vegas to gamble it away. Now this latest theft, a grave sin against the Seventh Commandment of God, has filtered down to Newchurch laypeople, who have become corrupted by Newchurch's rampant immorality, merely winked at by Francis-Bergoglio and his regime.

On March 24, 2024, an usher in Newchurch's largest Newparish, in Charlotte, North Carolian, Oscar Emmanuel Ehighalua, was caught absconding with a bag of collection money containing almost 3,500 USD . Police nabbed him on three felony embezzlement charges. If he hadn't been caught by police, the Newchurch usher was suspected to have been planning an even larger heist on Easter Sunday. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by WSOC-TV Charlotte.]

Traditional Catholics, criminal as these Newchurch laypeople are, the heaviest responsibility is that of the Newpopes, now Francis-Bergoglio, who seem to do nothing to stop rampant crime in their Newchurch with a wink and a nod. As the old saying goes, "the fish stinks from the head." By this time it is undeniably clear, if it wasn't already over the last sixty years of Newchurch's existence, that the Newchurch of the New Order is rotten to the core. Newchurch is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church.

Francis-Bergoglio's Newcardinal and Newpapal Chaplain, Cantalamessa, Is a Public Heretic
In Front of Bergoglio and His Newcuria, He Thrice Denied the Inerrancy and Historicity of Sacred Scripture

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
Ranieri Cantalamessa & Francis-Bergoglio

Two Apostates from the Catholic Faith Collude
Bergoglio Appointed Newcardinal Cantamessa
To Be His Newpapal Preacher for Lent
Now Cantalamessa, in Front of Bergoglio and His Newcuria
Has Denied the Divinity of Christ
And the Inerrancy and Historicity of the Bible
Bergoglio's Newvatican Is Crawling
With Apostates, Marxists, Atheists, and Sodomites

Francis-Bergoglio, in addition to being himself an apostate from the Catholic Faith, has surrounded himself with a den of fellow apostates. One of these heretics was recently exposed publicly: Raniero Cantalamessa, a Newcapuchin, to whom Bergoglio officially gave his Newchurch "imprimatur" by appointing him a Newcardinal in 2020. At Bergoglio's behest Cantalamessa is indoctrinating Bergoglio's Newprelates in apostasy as Bergoglio's designated 2024 Lenten preacher.

Cantalamessa wrapped up his Lenten sermons on March 25, 2024, with a wing dinger. He publicly denied, in front of an approving Bergoglio and his Newcuria, the divinity of Our Lord Jesus Christ and the inerrancy and historicity of Sacred Scripture. St. John the Apostle and Evangelist of the Fourth Gospel, Our Lord's closest friend, who walked with him every day for three years, reported in his Gospel (14:5-6/DRV) that the Apostle Thomas asked Christ: "How can we know the way?," to which Our Lord proclaimed: "I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No man cometh to the Father, but by me." Cantalamessa, pridefully making himself greater than the Beloved Disciple, claims that Christ never said that. What?!

Christ proclaimed: "I am the bread of life" (John 6:35/DRV), i.e., the Most Holy Eucharist. Bergoglio's Cantalamessa denies that Gospel account.
Christ proclaimed: "I am the light of the world" (John 8:12/DRV). Bergoglio's Cantalamessa denies that Gospel account.
Christ proclaimed: "I am the good shepherd" (John 10:/11/DRV). Bergoglio's Cantalamessa denies that Gospel account.

So, it seems that that apostate Newchurch of the New Order, having denied Sacred Tradition, one of the two fonts of Public Revelation (Divine Truth), has gone on to deny the other font, Sacred Scripture (The Bible). No surprise there. Newchurch is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church. Bergoglio's Cantalamessa claims that these statements were not made by the "historical Jesus." St. John the Apostle just lied and made them up. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]

Traditional Catholics, by officially approving the blessing of sodomite "couples," that is, "gay marriage," Bergoglio has already lost much of the Eastern Orthodox Church, who openly call him a heretic from the Christian Faith. Even the Pope of the earliest Christian Church, the Copts of Alexandria, Egypt, where St. Mark was Patriarch, has rejected Bergoglio as a heretic from the Christian Faith. By denying the inerrancy and historicity of the Bible, Bergoglio is now losing the Protestants and Evangelicals. If it hasn't been clear to the clueless Neocon Newchurchers and pseudo-traditionalists since 1964 that the Newchurch of the New Order and its pretender Newpopes are most certainly NOT the Catholic Church, the other two great Christian denominations, the Eastern Orthodox and the Protestant/Evangelicals, have seen the undeliable truth and have rejected Bergoglio as even a basic Christian. Of course, he isn't. In his own book he admits that he is a Marxist, tantamount to an atheist.

Double Feast of the Second Class

A Reader Asks: "Can a True Catholic Have Non-Catholic Friends?
I've Heard Different Opinions on This Question"

From: The TRADITIO Fathers

Alypius, St. Augustine's Best Friend
Was a Classical Pagan
Among Many Other Christians
The Great St. Paul
And the Pre-eminent St. Augustine
As Well as the Apostles
And Many Early Christian Saints
Had Non-Christian Friends
Many of These Friends
Eventually Converted to Christianity
Alypius even Became a Bishop
Like Augustine Himself

Dear TRADITIO Fathers:

Can a true Catholic have non-Catholic friends? I've heard different opinions about this.


Yes indeed. As just one example, the great St. Paul associated freely with the non-Christian (classical pagan) people with whom he came into contact, many of whom were friends of his. The pre-eminent St. Augustine's best friend was a classical pagan. St. Paul said famously that there is "neither Jew or Greek" (Galatians 3:28/DRV) in Christ, indicating that all, including the classical pagans around him, had the possibility of salvation of Christ open to them, and many of them converted to Christianity.

And don't forget: today's Newchurchers are not Catholics and are, in many cases, worse than the classical pagans with whom St. Paul associated.


Newchurch Presbyter Publicly Calls Francis-Bergoglio a "Usurper" at Newpope
Thereafter a Usurper Newarchbishop Purported to Expel the Presbyter from the Fake Newchurch

From: The TRADITIO Fathers
John Foster

Presbyter John Foster
Takes on Francis-Bergoglio
Publicly Calling Him a "Usurper"
As He Joins More and More Newchurchers
Who Are Beginning to See the Light
That Traditional Catholics Saw
As Early as 1964
When the Vatican II Anti-council Founded
The Fake Newchurch of the New Order
Which Is Most Certainly NOT the Catholic Church
So Its Newpopes Are Not True Popes

It certainly seems that more and more Newchurch "Catholics" are starting to open their eyes and realize that Francis-Bergoglio is not a true pope. (Nor, for that matter, were Paul VI-Montini, JPII-Wjotyla, or Benedict-Ratzinger.) On March 13, 2024, presbyter John Foster, founder of the Newchurch Mission of Divine Mercy (Divine Mercy being itself a spurious "devotion" of Newchurch), publicly called Bergoglio a "usurper" as Newpope. Foster claimed that he had received "prophetic messages" to that effect. Well, why not? Newchurch is so full of fake "eucharistic miracles" and fake "apparitions" that anything goes.

Foster stated that in a 17-page message entitled "We Must Obey God" that the Newchurch of the New Order is facing an "extreme crisis." Foster concludes: “Normally, obeying God includes obeying the authorities of the Church. But we are living in an unprecedented crisis. God is telling us that the Throne of Peter is occupied by a usurper, and we should not submit to him nor those who are carrying out his unjust designs." In this case Foster was right on the facts. Even a broken clock is right twice a day. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by the Crux News Service.]

Traditional Catholics, Foster, of course, had to be shut down by the Newchurch Corporation headed by Bergoglio, so he was immediately suspended by Gustavo Garcia-Siller, himself the usurper Newarchbishop of San Antonio, Texas. Garcia-Siller said that he was trying to prevent "further confusion." Well, that horse long ago left the barn. The Newchurch of the New Order, founded in 1964 at the Vatican II Anti-council, which is most certainly NOT the Catholic Church, is so confused that it doesn't even have a true Mass, true Sacraments, true doctrine, or true morality -- all is confused, and all contradictory opinions are accepted in the spurious "oecumenical" Newchurch of the New Order.
