Yes, pinch me because I must be dreaming. Indeed I'm posting something from Traditio.
Christ the King Traditional Benedictine Abbey, in Cullman, Alabama
With the Death of Its Abbot on January 9, 2011
It Has Become the Target of Theft by Novus Ordo Usurpers
The Local Traditional Community Laments, but Does Nothing
If They Lose the Abbey in the Next Few Days, It Will Be Only Their Own Fault
Traditional Catholics Must Fight For the Faith -- or They Will Surely Lose It
The TRADITIO Network has received an unconfirmed report that two Novus-Ordo infiltrators, Michael and Sebastian, posing as traditional monks at the traditional Benedictine Christ the King Abbey, of Cullman, Alabama, have taken over the abbey and expelled the only remaining traditional priest, Fr. Bernard. It appears that Novus Ordo usurpers have seized upon their opportunity with the staunchly-traditional Father Abbot Leonard Giardina ill since October 2010, then dying on January 8, 2011, to steal the abbey for the Novus Ordo. The past and current Newchurch bishops of Birmingham, David Foley and Robert Baker, been drooling over this possibility for several years now, and the Abbot told them both to go pound sand: he would have nothing to do with the New Order and its gauleiters.
As recently as 2010, Newbishop Baker tried to get the Abbot to sell out, but he refused. The poor Abbot's body wasn't even cold when, it seems, Novus Ordo usurpers, possibly taking their marching orders from the Novus Ordo sect, put into place their takeover plan. Who knows whether they were plants for Newbishops Foley and Baker all along?
This attempted coup of a traditional abbey for the Novus Ordo may not yet be a fait accompli, but time is of the essence. The local traditional community can lose the abbey in just a matter of days. If the abbey is taken over by the Newchurch of the New Order, they will ask how it happened. The way it always happens: the locals became pusillanimous, refusing to stand up for their rights, to confront the usurpers, and to fight them tooth and nail. The locals could take a page out of the book of the Newchurchers whose churches were to be shut down by the New Order: they conducted a 24-hour vigil in their churches to prevent the pretenders from taking over.
The local traditional community must immediately become a Tea Party for Traditional Catholicism! Instead, reports to the TRADITIO Network indicate that the locals are listening to spokesmen for the Novus Ordo usurpers, who are mouthing the usual Modernistic/Liberalistic line to be quiet, to pray, not to speak out, not to do anything, just wait and see what happens. Of course, that's their line. While the locals are waiting cowering, like the Apostles after the arrest of Christ, the hypocritical usurpers can complete their theft of the abbey!
And then the locals will lament why God allowed this to happen. God didn't. He gave the locals many tools with which to defend the traditional Catholic Faith. They just don't use them. Prayer and action are two sides of the same Catholic coin. Christ was a man of action. He never said only to pray and do nothing. Rather, he said: "But he that shall do and teach, he shall be called great in the kingdom of heaven (Matthew 5:19/DRV).
The penalty for inaction is high. If the locals lose their traditional abbey, they will have only themselves to blame, as they ignored the warning of St. Peter himself, repeated every night at the traditional Hour of Compline:
Sobrii estote, et vigilate: quia adversarius vester diabolus tamquam leo rugiens circuit, quærens quem devoret (1 Peter 5:8/DRV)
Be sober and watch: because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, goeth about seeking whom he may devour.
St. Peter's description as of the Newchurch of the New Order could not be more on target. The documented record is clear. Not only does Benedict-Ratzinger and his Newchurch clergy have the morals of a pig-stye, but they are thieves as well. Newarchbishop Rembert Weakland, of Milwaukee, Wisconsin, stole half a million dollars out of the Newchurch collection-plate to pay hush-money to his catamite. Newarchbishop Raymond Burke, of St. Louis, Missouri, tried to steal the independently-chartered St. Stanislaus Kostka Church, worth 12,000,000 dollars. Newchurch connived to steal St. Anthony of Padua Church, of West Orange, New Jersey, away from traditional priest Fr. Paul Wickens as he lay dying.
Good Catholics, the obvious conclusion from all the evidence is that Benedict-Ratzinger and his Newchurch clergy are not only immoral, but sneaky and not above fraud and theft. Traditional Catholics have got to get off their duffs and fight for their churches or, like more and more temples of the Newchurch of the New Order, their traditional churches will be slammed shut and locked forever.
