'Pope Francis’ new Motu Proprio is also deeply concerning in that it manifests an attitude of discrimination against an almost one thousand-year-old liturgical form of the Catholic Church,' Bishop Schneider told The Remnant.
We can live in this world as if we are not immersed in it, we can pass through it as if we are not wedded to it, we can order our ever-shorter days to the everlasting Day of the Lord — and in this way, what we are, what we do, what we suffer, will not rot from selfishness, but will sprout and spread in the fecundity of love.
The respected German newspaper, Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, last week published a strongly critical article on Pope Francis’s Apostolic Letter by Professor Helmut Hoping, Professor of Dogmatics and Liturgical Studies at the University of Freiburg.
Traditionis custodes: this is the incipit of the document with which Francis imperiously cancels the previous Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum of Benedict XVI. The almost mocking tone of the bombastic quotation from Lumen Gentium will not have escaped notice: just when Bergoglio recognizes the Bishops as guardians of the Tradition, he asks them to obstruct its highest and most sacred expression of prayer.
Traditional Catholics from across the state, including some from Cheboygan who attended and were married at St. Charles before it closed, responded to the reopening of the church with much celebration.
