Jesus Christ “will not snap the staff that is already crushed, nor put out the wick that still smolders.”
Bishop Arthur Roche
What bishops need to know!
Ponder this statement by the prefect for the Dicastery for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments (a.k.a. “CDW”).
Arthur Cardinal Roche has not had an easy time of it lately.
“Holy Trinity is where Josh came into the Church, went through RCIA, and was married…”
Today is the 15th anniversary of “Summorum Pontificum”—and some clerics are choosing coercion where persuasion has failed.
Cardinal Roche met with Pope Emeritus Benedict XVI on 27 August 2022.
I write in response to the 6 July 2022 statement by Pope Francis: “Make your voices heard! If they do not listen to you, shout even louder.”
I am bewildered.
In this meeting—and subsequent statement—Pope Francis made it clear that institutes like the FSSP are not affected by “Traditionis Custodes.”
Bishop Arthur Roche recently sent out puzzling instructions which encourage “Ordinary Form” Catholics to ostracize and belittle those who prefer the Traditional Mass.
Archbishop Roche says the ‘true’ parishioners are supposed to make it clear the EF people are lowest on the totem pole.
“The Extraordinary Form is another expression (older than the 1969 Missal) and is a valid expression of the Church’s liturgy.” —Arthur Roche
Is backroom bowdlerization of Sacred Scripture truly irreversible?
