Two More Irish New church Bishops Resign but Refuse Personal Responsibility for Sex Crimes
The Irish Are Hopping Mad at the Effrontery of Benedict-Ratzinger's Criminal Hierarchs

From: The Fathers


Irish Newbishops Eamon Walsh (Left) and Raymond Field Have Resigned
But Have Not Acknowledged Personal Responsibility for the Sex Crimes
That They Suborned as Auxiliary Bishops of Dublin, Ireland
The Irish Are Now Publicly Lashing Out against Benedict-Ratzinger's Corrupt Hierarchs

Two more Irish Newchurch bishops have resigned on Christmas Eve 2009 in the wake of Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal, making a total of four so far. New bishops Eamon Walsh and Raymond Field, of Dublin, joined Donal Murray, of Limerick, and James Moriarty, of Kildare & Leighlin. Yet, for the Irish, this was too little and too late. In fact, the Irish are hopping mad at the bishops because they have refused to acknowledge any wrongdoing or personal responsibility for the rampage of sex crimes against children that they suborned and that were exposed in the Irish government's recently-released Murphy Report.

The Irish Times flayed Benedict-Ratzinger's corrupt bishops, who "failed over many decades to respond properly to criminal acts against children." The Times charged the bishops with refusing to acknowledge being "party to a collective governance of the archdiocese which had so many inadequacies where child protection was concerned." One victim said that getting rid of corrupt Newchurch bishops "is about removing a culture with which they were so strongly associated from the heart of Dublin's Catholic [sic] archdiocese."

A Reader Asks: Are Hosts Tampered with at a "Motu" Mess Valid?

From: Lou

Dear Fathers:
I have a friend whose daughter attends a "Motu" Mess where the priest-presbyter gives gluten-free hosts to her because she is celiac. Are these hosts valid matter?

The Fathers Reply.
No, a host to be valid must be bread, that is, natural wheat flour and water only. In such cases, the individual should contact the priest in advance and arrange to receive only a small Particle. Invalid matter invalidates the Sacrament, but the small size is not invalidating. By the same principle, alcohol-free "wine" is invalid, as wine is naturally the fermented juice of grapes.

December 30, 2009 - Sunday within the Octave of the Nativity (Transferred)
Semidouble Sunday

The Mass of this Sunday, which would ordinarily have been celebrated on the Sunday following the Feast of the Nativity, had to be transferred to a later day in 2009, because the Double Feast of the Second Class of St. John, Apostle & Evangelist, took precedence over the Sunday. Monday and Tuesday of this week were also Double Feasts, of The Holy Innocents and of St. Thomas of Canterbury, respectively. Therefore, Wednesday of this week is the first available day on which this required Mass can be celebrated.

Irish Cathedral Is Burned to the Ground on Christmas Morning
Did Irishmen Fed up with the New Order Church after the Murphy Report Torch It?

From: The Fathers


St. Mel's Cathedral in Longford, Ireland, Burns to the Ground
Police Are Investigating the Possibility of Arson
As Ireland Has Been Consumed with the Murphy Report
That Charged Benedict-Ratzinger's Newchurch with Covering Up
A Rampage of Sex Crimes across Ireland

Things are getting hot, literally, for Newchurch in Ireland. After the Irish government issued its Murphy Report, which showed that Newchurch in Ireland has been engaged in a rampage of rapes, assaults, and even murders of children, which the members of the Novus Ordo hierarchy up to and including Benedict-Ratzinger himself, covered up and even abetted, four Irish Newbishops have already resigned over the scandal. As a consequence, the Irish government is removing Newchurch from the control of schools.

But corrective action is perhaps not coming fast enough for the multitudes of Irish people who are fed up with Benedict-Ratzinger's Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal and his own involvement in covering it up. Victims of sex crimes by his Newbishops and presbyters have condemned Benedict-Ratzinger's statement on the report as "inadequate" and "meaningless," with one man vowing to take legal action against Newpope because of his lack of any real response to the crimes.

It may be just such Irishmen irate at Newchurch who burned St. Mel's Cathedral in Longford to the ground on Christmas morning 2009. Fire officers battled to save the 19th-century cathedral, pumping water from a canal, but it was left in ruins. Smoke was still billowing from St. Mel's into the night as fire officers assessed the damage. The Irish police, known as the Gardai, are investigating the blaze for arson. Colm O'Reilly, Newchurch bishop of Ardagh, at the Novus Ordo Christmas "Midnight" service (actually held at 22:00), had spoken of "difficult times facing the Church," alluding to Newchurch's Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal that has gripped this nation, and seven hours later the cathedral was burnt to the ground.

An SSPXer Writes: "My Wife and I Have Decided Not to Contribute
Any More Money to the Society of St. Pius X"

From: John

Our SSPX church here is going berserk. The priest-presbyter has been lengthening the Mass to two hours, with an extra-long sermon. Then he decided to ape the Novus Ordo by having the lights shut off for Christmas Midnight Mass and distributing candles with paper holders around the base. One member of the congregation burned himself while he tried to stamp out a fire caused by the burning of the paper. I couldn't read anything because the church remained black as the pit of Hell!

My wife and I are thoroughly dissatisfied with what's going on between our superior general, Bernie Fellay, and Newrome. So, we have decided not to contribute any more money to the SSPX. I think that if more of us SSPXers withheld contributions and refused to fill out Fellay's political "Rosary Crusade" forms, Fellay and his minions would get the message that we SSPXers are not all his sheep, and we want to be advised where our money is going. For all we know, a lot of it is going into the Novus Ordo activities of what our founder, Archbishop Lefebvre, called "Modernist Rome."

Woman Assaults Benedict-Ratzinger before Papal Christmas Novus Ordo Service
Was She an Aggrieved Mother, Whose Child Was Raped by One of Newpope's Presbyters?

From: The Fathers


A Woman, Dressed in the Red of Martyrdom, Attacks Benedict-Ratzinger
Newvatican Has Been Close-mouthed about Her Motives
This Is Her Second Attack upon Benedict-Ratzinger
Is She the Mother of a Child Victim
Of Benedict-Ratzinger's Continuing Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal?

Like all Conciliar popes, Benedict-Ratzinger has rejected the papal processional chair of Roman tradition, called the sedia gestatoria. The purpose of the chair was to facilitate the faithful seeing the pope as he processed to the altar. Benedict-Ratzinger goes on foot and cannot easily be seen. On Christmas Eve 2009 he probably wished that he had not rejected tradition. A woman dressed in red jumped over the main-aisle barrier in St. Peter's Basilica and attacked him as he began his procession to the altar.

No Swiss guards were in evidence, and when the woman beat Benedict-Ratzinger to the ground, the clergy accompanying him seemed confused. They did not rush to his defense. One bishop was caught by the cameras shrugging as if to say: who cares? It seems that Novus Ordo presbyters are good for nothing, even for protecting the pope! This is the second year that the same woman has attacked Benedict-Ratzinger in the Christmas procession. Why is Newvatican security so incompetent? What was the woman's motive? Was she an aggrieved mother of a child victim of Benedict-Ratzinger's continuing Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal?

The ceremony this year broke tradition and was held at 22:00 Rome time, not Midnight, so technically it wasn't a Midnight service. Nor was it a Mass, of course, since Benedict-Ratzinger always uses the invalid Protestant-Masonic-Pagan Novus Ordo service, not the Traditional Latin Mass. Even the papal press spokesman, Federico Lombardi, admitted that Benedict-Ratzinger was too frail to perform the duties of his office according to the regular schedule by which, after the Midnight Christmas service, he gives the papal blessing Urbi et orbi from the papal balcony the following noon. What a rigorous schedule!

At the Christmas noon blessing, Benedict was described as stumbling and needed an assistant to get him into his chair on the balcony. Much as Lombardi tried to cover up the situation, rumors were rife in Rome that Benedict-Ratzinger is not long for this world. He is not a good man. He has suffered one heart attack and two strokes. Once he lost his balance and knocked himself unconscious on a radiator. Recently, he fell trying to flip a light switch and broke his wrist.

The Meaning of the "Twelve Days of Christmas"
A Song of Anti-Catholic Persecution in a Once-Catholic Country

From: The Fathers

On December 26 starts the Twelve Days of Christmas, ending on the Twelfth Day, January 6, Epiphany. The popular Christmas song, "The Twelve Days of Christmas," was written in England during the persecution (1558-1820), when the Roman Catholic Faith could not openly be practiced. It was actually a catechism song for young Catholics with different levels of meaning. The hidden meanings of the song's gifts were intended to help children remember the lessons of their Faith.

  • "Twelve Days: Christmas to Epiphany.
  • "My True Love": God the Father.
  • "Me": every baptized soul.
  • "Partridge": Jesus Christ, symbolically presented as a mother partridge, which feigns injury to decoy predators from her helpless nestlings.
  • 2nd day: the Old and New Testaments.
  • 3rd day: the theological virtues: Faith, Hope, and Charity.
  • 4th day: the four Gospels.
  • 5th day: the Pentateuch (first five books of the Bible), telling of man's fall from grace.
  • 6th day: the six days of Creation.
  • 7th day: the seven gifts of the Holy Ghost: wisdom, understanding, counsel, fortitude, knowledge, piety, fear of the Lord.
  • 8th day: the eight Beatitudes.
  • 9th day: nine fruits of the Holy Ghost: charity, joy, peace, patience, benignity, generosity, faithfulness, mildness, and continency (as taught in the catechism of the time).
  • 10th day: the Ten Commandments.
  • 11th day: the eleven faithful Apostles.
  • 12th day: the twelve articles of the Apostles Creed.
Also during the time of persecution in England, an 18th-century English candy maker decided to make a candy commemorating Christmas. The candy cane represents a shepherd's staff and upside down is the letter commencing the Holy Name of Jesus. It is made of white candy to represent purity with three red stripes for the Holy Trinity and one large red stripe for Our Lord's Precious Blood later shed.

Benedict-Ratzinger's Heretical Friend Schillebeeckx Dies at Age 95
Schillebeeckx and Ratzinger Were Co-conspirators of the Modernist Takeover of Vatican II

From: The Fathers


Besuited Edward Schillebeeckx (Left) and Joseph Ratzinger at Vatican II
The Two Joined with Karl Rahner, Hans Kung, and Others at the Council
To Oppose Cardinal Ottaviani, Archbishop Lefebvre, and Other Traditional Forces
To Turn Vatican II into a Virus to Promote a Newchurch of a New Order

Dead on December 23, 2009, at age 95, Edward Schillebeeckx, a Dutchman, was one of the rare Dominicans who sold out to Modernism at Vatican II (1962-1965). Most Dominicans, schooled in the Catholic philosophy of their member, St. Thomas Aquinas, the Church's Principal Theologian, remained conservative. Schillebeeckx, however, so reeked of the odor of heresy that even the Conciliar pope Paul VI sent him official notification that his views were heretical.

One of Schillebeeckx's co-conspirators at the Council was Joseph Ratzinger, both of them conspiring with other Modernists like Karl Rahner and Hans Kung to engineer the takeover of the Council by the already-Protestantized North European bishops. Ratzinger himself had been declared under suspicion of heresy by Pope Pius XII, and his book, Introduction to Christianity, was banned because of heresy.

Schillebeeckx was responsible for forwarding several Modernist propositions at the Council. He advocated the notion of "collegiality," by which bishops became essentially independent of the pope and petty potentates in their own dioceses, responsible to no one but themselves. He advocated a non-celibate clergy contrary to Apostolic Tradition. He advocated the Protestant notion of the "priesthood" of the laity.

Even after the New Order had taken over Newchurch, Schillebeeckx's Modernism was so extreme that even as late as 1984 he was charged with denying the resurrection of Christ as an objective fact of faith. In 1986 Schillebeeckx was warned that his teaching on the Sacraments was heretical. Schillebeeckx was accused of denying the resurrection of Christ as an objective fact of faith. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]

Good Catholics, they say, "Birds of a feather flock together." Such was the kind of man with whom Joseph Ratzinger conspired at Vatican II to kick off the Newchurch of the New Order with a different doctrine, morality, and liturgy. The notion that Benedict-Ratzinger has one shred of traditional Catholicism in him is a joke -- or rather a carefully-engineered fraud to win the allegiance and money of the conservative Novus Ordinarians and pseudo-traditionalists, many of whom have bough the fraud hook, line, and sinker.

Second Newchurch University Exposed as Sponsoring Pro-abortion Work
Pays to Send Two Fellows to Work at Planned Parenthood for Abortion

From: The Fathers

Now that Newchurch's Notre Dame University of South Bend, Indiana, has been exposed as a non-Catholic fraud, when it invited the pro-abortion/pro-"gay" Barack Obama to give its 2009 Commencement Speech and then jailed priests who demonstrated in opposition, Newchurch's Georgetown University Law School has also been exposed as a non-Catholic fraud for its placement of two Women's Law and Public Policy Fellows with the pro-abortion advocacy group, Planned Parenthood.

Georgetown pays the fellows to do pro-abortion work for Planned Parenthood. Among other projects, they will be working on litigation to overturn a vote of the people restricting abortions. [Some information for this Commentary was contributed by Catholic World News.]

December 27, 2009 - St. John, Apostle & Evangelist
Double Feast of the Second Class

VATICAN II-BUGNINI "LITURGICAL BOOKS OF 1962" WARNING. The traditional Double Feast of the Second Class for St. John, Apostle & Evangelist, has been reduced in the "Motu" Mess to a mere commemoration for the Apostle, whereas the "Motu" Mess is merely that of the Sunday within the Octave of the Nativity. The Apostle doesn't even get a commemoration at Second Vespers. All in all, this liturgical day in Benedict-Ratzinger's "Motu" Mess degrades Our Lord's "Beloved Apostle," as it consistently demotes and degrades feastdays of the Blessed Virgin Mary and the other Saints.

Benedict-Ratzinger Has Ordered the Bethlehem Manger Scene Suppressed
In Front of St. Peter's Basilica

From: The Fathers


Benedict-Ratzinger Mugs in front of a Representation of St. Joseph
2009 Will Be the Third Year that Newvatican Will Not Have a Creche
Newpope Ordered It Replaced
With a More "Socialist" Carpenter's Workshop at Nazareth
What Does That Have to Do with Christ's Nativity at Bethlehem?

2009 will be the third year that Benedict-Ratzinger's Newvatican has done away with the popularly-recognized Bethlehem manager scene known as the Praesepe, or creche, in front of St. Peter's Basilica. In many countries around the world, the Bethlehem creche is prohibited forcibly by law. In Newvatican, which is a law unto itself, the Bethlehem creche is being voluntarily suppressed.

In a wrenching rewriting of Christmas, Benedict-Ratzinger ordered in 2007 that the remembrance of Christ's birth at Bethlehem be suppressed and instead replaced by a kind of Socialist-worker-inspired "St. Joseph the Worker" (Newchurch doesn't like "Workman" -- it isn't feminist enough) scene. Gone are the sheep and the hay. The setting is Nazareth, with "the typical work tools of a carpenter." On one side, the carpenter's shop is flanked by a covered patio and, on the other, there is the "inside of a pub, with its hearth."

A spokesman for Benedict-Ratzinger admitted that St. Matthew's Gospel indicated that the Nativity took place in "Bethlehem of Juda" (2:1/DRV). The spokesman said that Newvatican decided to rewrite the Gospel and place the scene in Nazareth, nevertheless. In the words that traditional Catholics have heard so often since the Modernist Council Vatican II (1962-1965), Newpope's spokesman proclaimed: "It was time for a change." No more explanation than that, just as all of the Vatican II "reforms" were imposed ostensibly by force of law, not reason. When the Novus Ordo authorities were asked by traditional put Catholics, "Why the changes?," the answer was an answer more characteristic of dictators, not Catholic prelates: "Because I say so!"

Benedict-Ratzinger's Newspaper Praises Foul-mouthed, Violent Cartoon
As Homer Simpson Joins the Witch Harry Potter In Newpope's Praise

From: The Fathers

As the symptoms of senility begin to impinge on Benedict-Ratzinger, who will be 83 in April 2010, Newpope's official newspaper, L'Osservatore Romano, in its December 23, 2009, issue, has singled out for praise yet another questionable figure, to say the least. The newspaper has previously praised Harry Potter, the witch in a popular series of novels by J.K. Rowling. Now, it is the foul-mouthed Homer Simpson, patriarch of The Simpsons, who is the subject of praise.

Benedict-Ratzinger's newspaper has also praised real figures, such as Karl Marx, the originator of the philosophy of atheistic Communism, and Oscar Wilde, the playwright who was convicted and sentenced on charges of sodomy against young men. The foul-mouthed Simpsons are described by Newpope's newspaper as "profound," even though the newspaper admits that the cartoon uses "crude language and violence." We're surely not talking about Mickey Mouse here!

Good Catholics, this is purely papal pandering to the lowest common denominator in order to increase his newspaper subscriptions. With the dramatic falloff in contributions to Benedict-Ratzinger because of his continuing Great Sex & Embezzlement Scandal, poor Newpope has apparently decided to pander for money any way he can to try to up his sinking New Order Church.

France's Chief Rabbi Says: Pope Is "Not an Example of Morality"

From: The Fathers


The Young Joseph Ratzinger Was a Member of Hitler's Youth Organization
Then, as He Himself Admits, Went on to Wear the Nazi Uniform
As a Member of Hitler's Armed Forces, the Wehrmacht
Now Benedict-Ratzinger Plays Both Sides of the Fence
Defending Pope Pius XII while Simultaneously Playing the Sycophant to Secular Jewish Leaders

We would have had to say that France's Chief Rabbi, Gilles Bernheim, had a point when he stated on December 20, 2009, that the pope is "not an example of morality." If, that is, Bernheim were speaking of Benedict-Ratzinger, who since 2001 has been ultimately responsible for a sex "holocaust" against tens of thousands of his Newchurch children by his Novus Ordo clergy. But Bernheim is not concerned about the assault, rape, and even murder of Newchurch children under Benedict-Ratzinger's supervision.

No, Bernheim was speaking of Pope Pius XII, who since Vatican II (1962-1965) has been the target of secular Jewish radical leaders. It must be craven politics that is behind this slander against a saintly pope, as in fact Pope Pius XII was instrumental in protecting the Jews of Rome, even to the point of gathering 50 kilograms of gold to provide "indemnity" money to save them from imprisonment. He also ordered that all monasteries and convents be opened to hide Jewish refugees, and the Vatican coordinated a wide effort to obtain passports and other documents to help thousands of Jews to escape. In Rome, 155 convents and monasteries sheltered some 5,000 Jews. At least 3,000 found refuge at the Pope's summer residence at Castel Gandolfo. Sixty Jews lived for nine months at the Gregorian University, and many were sheltered in the cellar of the Pontifical Biblical Institute. Hundreds found sanctuary within the Vatican itself.

At the end of the war, the chief rabbi of Rome, Israel Zolli, was converted to Catholicism and chose for his baptismal name, Eugenio, after the pontiff. The notorious Nazi official, Adolph Eichmann, in his diary, released on March 1, 2000, complains that the Vatican "vigorously protested the arrest of Jews, requesting the interruption of such action; to the contrary, the Pope would denounce it publicly." Even the Israeli Prime Minister, Golda Meir, publicly praised Pius XII on his death in 1958: "We share in the grief of humanity. During the Nazi terror, when fearful martyrdom came to our people, the voice of the Pope was raised for its victims. The life of our times was enriched by a voice speaking out about great moral truths above the tumult of daily conflict. We mourn a great servant of peace."

French chief rabbi Bernheim even wants to interfere in the internal affairs of Newchurch by stopping Pius XII's Novus Ordo beatification. It is only the senior bishop of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), Richard Williamson, who has implicitly stood up for Pius XII, words for which he has been charged in Germany with "sedition," placed under virtual house arrest by the Neo-SSPX leader, Bernie Fellay, and denounced by Newpope Benedict-Ratzinger, who, ironically, himself wore the Nazi uniform of Adolf Hitler as a member of the Hitler-Jugend and Hitler's Wehrmacht.

Benedict-Ratzinger has hypocritically played both sides of the fence on the "holocaust," by defending his predecessor's actions, but at the same time playing the sycophant to secular Jewish radical organizations, such as the American Jewish Committee, who with the French chief rabbi Bernheim, denounced the recent step toward Pius XII's beatification in Newchurch.

A Reader Asks: "What Has Been Going Wrong with the SSPX Lately?"

From: Leo

Dear Fathers:
As a layman who attends the SSPX Mass, as otherwise there is only the invalid Novus Ordo service in my area, I have become troubled, wondering what has been going wrong with the SSPX lately. Can you shed some light on this?

The Fathers Reply.
Since Bernie Fellay took over as superior general of the SSPX and turned it into a Neo-SSPX, rejecting the founding principles of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre against the Novus Ordo, we have received very troubling reports from around the world, to say the least. Fellay proudly proclaims that the SSPX uses Bugnini's Mess of 1962 -- the same Freemason presbyter Bugnini who fabricated the invalid Novus Ordo service of 1969 with his Committee of Six Protestant Ministers. Moreover, reports to us from around the world indicate that Fellay has posted at various SSPX sites not ordained traditional Catholic priests, but Novus Ordo presbyters merely installed under Bugnini's invalid New Ordinal of 1968.

The Neo-SSPX under Fellay is clearly moving toward joining the Novus Ordo establishment. Information on the topic of the Neo-SSPX will be found in past Daily Commentaries from the TRADITIO Fathers department of the TRADITIO Network.

The TRADITIO Fathers hope that on Christmas you will be able to attend a fully Traditional Latin Mass augmented with the strains of the traditional Sacred Chant. If you have this blessing, be sure to offer prayer there for the many traditional Catholics who have to settle for Hannibal Bugnini's corrupted "Motu" Mess of 1962-2008 -- or nothing at all.
