Will the true defenders of Vatican II please stand up?
Traditionis Custodes Motu Proprio
Pope Francis dropped a bombshell – but around the world many Bishops continue to be faithful keepers of Tradition.
Locations which celebrate the Traditional Latin Mass tend to be the marginalized groups, given “leftovers” that nobody else wants.
Tired of dense theological issues and historical comparisons about the new Motu Proprio? Take a little time out to read some simpler reflections on the Latin Mass.
Now is certainly not the time for sensationalist language. However…
“Deliver us, Lord, from every evil: past, present, and to come.”
“Truly Perplexing” • Pope Francis’ Motu Proprio
“We are today not another Church as 500 years ago; it’s always the same Church.” —Cardinal Ratzinger on EWTN
“Serve God in that charity and love which cast out fear; such love does not regard merit.” —Saint Bernard
Certain parts of the Mass (such as the Canon) must remain in Latin, while others, especially those directed to the people (such as the readings and the restored «Oratio fidelium»), can take place in the vernacular.
