Media Proposes Bergoglio Disposes — Transalpine Redemptorists Under Fire by Masonic Media

The Transalpine Redemptorists in New Zealand have become the target of a Vatican investigation.

Under Pope Francis, apostolic visitations and papal commissars have also become an instrument of the one-sided struggle for elimination within the Church when they are used against tradition.  Now the sword is also falling on the Transalpine Redemptorists, a traditional religious order that has two monasteries.  The main monastery is located on a small island in the Orkney Islands, off the north coast of Scotland.  The second monastery was founded at Kakahu on the South Island of New Zealand.  A third monastery has been located in the USA since 2020, specifically in the diocese of Great Falls-Billings in the state of Montana.  The attacks relate to the second monastery in the New Zealand diocese of Christchurch.

The Transalpine Redemptorists were founded by Father Michael Mary Sim, a Redemptorist who found the liberalization in the Redemptorist Order, especially in the liturgical area, unbearable.  In 1987 he took the step to re-establish a traditional Redemptorist order.  He was supported by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre.  The young order retreated to the isolated island of Papa Stronsay in the Orkney Islands and flourished, so that today there are three monasteries on three continents.  The Transalpine Redemptorists remained closely linked to the Priestly Society of St. Pius X until 2008.  After Pope Benedict XVI., having issued the Motu proprio Summorum Pontificum, they entered into full unity with Rome.  In 2012 the order was recognized under canon law and included among the so-called Ecclesia Dei communities.

New Zealand media reported that an investigation was launched by the Holy See into allegations of “spiritual and psychological abuse.”  Since the term “abuse” now has a very one-sided connotation, it is important to expressly point out that it is not about sexual abuse.  The Redemptorists of the tradition are accused of carrying out unauthorized exorcisms.

The Vatican sent Australian Bishop Emeritus Robert McGuckin to New Zealand to investigate the Transalpine Redemptorists there.  McGuckin is a canon lawyer and has served as a judge on the Ecclesiastical Court for Australia and New Zealand.  In May 2012, Pope Benedict XVI appointed him.  Bishop of Toowoomba in the Australian state of Queensland.  Last May, at the age of 80, he was given emeritus status by Pope Francis, exceptionally late.

Father Magdala Maria, one of the two priests who are in the crossfire of criticism

Msgr. McGuckin was assigned, as a first step, to interview the New Zealand complainant against the Transalpine Redemptorists.

This was preceded by a report by the New Zealand news agency Newshub, whose target was the Transalpine Redemptorists, known in the Anglo-Saxon world as the Sons of the Most Holy Redeemer.

In New Zealand people are very surprised by the Roman action, as no comparable step is known and the action was ordered high up.  Just two years ago, the public broadcaster Television New Zealand (TVNZ) published a lengthy report.  But the Redemptorists of the tradition don't have only friends in the island state.

In a second step, McGuckin wants to interview various people who made allegations against Transalpine Redemptorist priests in the Newshub report.  These should also include people who have left the Church.

The Newshub report accuses the Transalpine Redemptorist priests responsible for Canterbury (New Zealand), Father Anthony Mary and Father Magdala Maria, of “manipulative behavior”.  They interfered in the family life of believers and carried out several unauthorized exorcisms.

The Transalpine Redemptorists deny wrongdoing.  They face the unjustified attacks.  They would do nothing other than proclaim the Church's teachings and exhaust its means of grace.  The problem is that some in the world cannot tolerate the revealed truth or the Church's means of grace and are offended by it.

Believers from the Transalpine Redemptorist environment confirm this representation.  The Newshub report was intentionally scandalous and exaggerated.  Ultimately, the Church is being attacked.  In order to do this, a community of tradition was chosen because it was known that it could not count on unrestricted solidarity in the Church.  The reporters would also know who in the Church has been approved for shooting.

Rome was approached by the local bishop of Christchurch, Msgr. Michael Gielen.  In August the bishop visited Rome and held discussions with Vatican authorities about the Transalpine Redemptorists.  His input triggered the investigation.  The diocesan bishop told Newshub: “I have asked the Holy See for advice.  In response, the Holy See has initiated an apostolic visitation and appointed Reverend Robert McGuckin, Bishop Emeritus of Toowoomba, as apostolic visitator.”

 Behind the accusation that “unapproved” exorcisms were carried out is Msgr. Gielen, who emphasizes that exorcisms have to be approved by him as the local bishop, but this has not happened.

 Behind the Newshub report are Catholics who are calling for the dissolution of the Transalpine Redemptorists.

The latest Mme DeFarge Media denouncement, to be followed by the demonization/cancelling (decapitating) of the ideological offenders of the marxist V2 fakechurch. This updated, global, and slightly less bloody version of the French Revolution attacks only the enemies of marxism and it's various snakeheads, ie: eco-worship, white hate, egalitarianism, "feminism", "science"-ism, homosexualism, created reality/denial of biology/natural order, destruction of national identity, etc. Whereupon Trad, Inc will lament, and demand the abolition of papal authority ("Resist!! Ignore!! Hate the fat man, our Holy Father!), and the ultimate monarchy on earth, currently without a pope, will be reduced to a figurehead, like the rest of the monarchies, a grinning yes-man for the WEF, decrees based on rigged committee consensus ("synods"). How can anyone still believe that this pile of steaming excrement that is occupying the Vatican has anything to do with the Faith?

Unauthorized exorcisms seem to be part of the reported problems with the diocese and the Lefebvrists

“Unapproved exorcisms!!” Oh my!

Considering a lot of bishops don’t even believe in Hell, I could see why.

Start with Bergoglio. He denied it in an interview with his Freemason buddy, Scalfari.

That's two on your list. Who are the others and where do they live?

At this point, Liam, ALL of them, based on their embrace of the V2 heresies and false popes. "By their fruit.....". Ever heard of the Great Apostasy?

Michael Lobo said...

"Ever heard of the Great Apostasy?"

You are clearly referring to Ray Burke, "First Class Lounge" Schneider, Tex Strickland along with lesser acolytes, Opus Dei franchises, 'My View for Awhile' Zuhlsdorf, 'Patrimony' Hunwicke, 'The Embalmed One" Aroyo etc, etc.

I am? Why would I do that? I'm not in the V2 fakechurch.

ML said...

" I'm not in the V2 fakechurch." You are, however, and sede vacantist and schismatic.

Congratulations on being a member of the elite 'extra Ecclesiam nulla salus' brigade.

"Schismatic"??? LOL! It is very obvious who is schismatic, who denies Tradition, and the pre-V2 2,000 yr old Magisterium, who installs and worships idols and demons in the Vatican! Yes, I am a dispossessed Catholic. I am not schismatic, YOU and your freemasonic fakechurch are. Now go make pilgrimmage to your snakehead auditorium, and grovel to Kissy Fernandez, the "mouth healer" of teenagers.

Apparently, you redefined “sedevacanist” to fit your own narrative. The St. Gallen group openly boasts about forcing Bergoglio’s election to Pope. By the way, what are we really arguing about, anyway? ML, you attack the liturgy and apparently want women deacons, etc., but you also purport that VII was doctrinal and not “pastoral”. Apparently you want to redact the fact that it was declared officially as “pastoral”. In other words, it only seemed to some that it promoted, in some documents, heresies like religious indifferentism, false ecumenism and religious liberty. But if it only seemed that way and yet, in fact, didn’t do so doctrinally — because that would clearly demonstrate it null and void by fact that it would have more blatantly gone against Church teachings, and even the very definition and nature of the Church. No, you didn’t support this in a cowardly attempt to ‘talk’ out of two-sides of your mouth: “It’s not a doctrinal council, but you must publicly affirm that VII changed Church teachings!”, you just went after the traditional liturgy. Oh, but wait, you DO openly profess to be against Church teachings, so of course, your cowardly modus operandi is to gaslight and project. Sounds like you are angry with God. No wonder you don’t like holy water so much that you will allow your bought and paid for friends to call those “exorcism”. You and Michael Moriah are ridiculous. Your hatred of God is showing that you must redefine god under the guise of being a friend to local native Kiwis. Really, those who practice the native beliefs really want a version of their traditions immeshed with Catholicism? Lolol. No one is buying that. Nice try. You hate the what the Catholic Church has been from the beginning and even are impatient with its formal destruction.
