July 23, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Don Davide Pagliarani, the General Superior of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX) – whose priests exclusively celebrate the Traditional Latin Mass – has published today a response to Pope Francis’s motu proprio Traditionis Custodes. In his letter, Father Pagliarani makes it clear that there are, indeed, two different Masses – the Traditional Mass and the Novus Ordo Mass – representing two different faiths. He says that this motu proprio has now shown that the concept of the “hermeneutics of continuity” – which insists that the post-conciliar Church in her liturgy, doctrine, and morals, […]
July 20, 2021 (LifeSiteNews) – Article 1 of the motu proprio Traditionis Custodes reads: “The liturgical books promulgated by Saint Paul VI and Saint John Paul II, in conformity with the decrees of Vatican Council II, are the unique expression of the lex orandi of the Roman Rite.” The pope here claims that the Novus Ordo is the only law of prayer for the Roman Rite. It is impossible to see how this is compatible with the history of the Church and with her reverence for the venerable rites of antiquity and the Middle Ages, epitomized in the Missale Romanum of 1570 […]
(LifeSiteNews) — The Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments (CDW) will implement a worldwide ban on the sacraments according to pre-Vatican II rites, according to a report by popular traditional Catholic blog Rorate Caeli on Tuesday evening. A short message on Rorate’s website said that the CDW, now headed by the staunch anti-traditionalist Archbishop Arthur Roche, will release an instruction on the implementation of Pope Francis’ July 16 motu proprio Traditionis custodes within the next week. According to Rorate’s sources, the instruction will seek to implement a restriction on the use of liturgical books and norms for the sacraments in lockstep with those restrictions placed on priests on October 7 in the Diocese of Rome […]
[…] longer conceive of going anywhere else. Its power of attraction on the young is enormous, as a church full of TLM-goers, teeming with young people, adolescents, children, and plenty of babies proved this Sunday morning. All were afraid that it would be the last TLM in that parish church, because Traditionis Custodes (with its horribly ironic title, “guardians of tradition”) aims to eradicate it from public view, discouraging those who love it and keeping away those who might be attracted to it. After Pope Francis’s cruel words, it was a balm indeed to hear the parish priest proclaim, with the […]
[…] has never celebrated the Extraordinary Form of the Holy Mass and who, because of his rather sober character, has no intention of ever doing so, it is perhaps easier than those directly concerned to give an assessment of the situation that has arisen following the publication of the motu proprio Traditionis custodes of July 16, 2021. This legal decree is an expression of fear, the fear that in free circumstances a form of liturgy could be preserved and even expanded in the younger generation (priests and laity). The legal text is at the same time the admission that the liturgy […]
[…] continue to celebrate the Traditional Latin Mass. With this response, Archbishop Viganò acts as a pastor who tries to help priests and faithful in a very difficult situation. On August 2, Archbishop Carlo Maria Viganò published a video and statement with his response to Pope Francis’s July 16 motu proprio Traditionis Custodes which aims at banning the Tridentine Mass, or Traditional Latin Mass, as it has been celebrated for centuries. In his response, the Italian prelate pointed out that this Pope shows himself to be a “anti-Catholic Pope” aiming at the undermining the Faith, rather than fostering it. “Just when […]
'It’s clear that Traditionis Custodes is saying "okay, this experiment has not entirely been successful," and so let us go back to what the Council required of the Church,' Archbishop Arthur Roche told a Swiss news channel.
[…] diocese, including a ban on the traditional Easter Triduum previously celebrated in Rome by a traditional order of priests. Yesterday Cardinal Angelo De Donatis issued a decree restricting the use of the 1962 Missal and other liturgical books throughout the Diocese of Rome in an effort to “welcome the provisions of the Apostolic Letter Traditionis Custodes.” The decree also banned the faithful from participating in the Easter Triduum at a church ran by the Priestly Fraternity of Saint Peter (FSSP). Although the decree was issued on November 9, it was dated October 7. It sets out the details for the implementation of the motu proprio Traditiones Custodes […]
