    [Catholic Caucus] The Church in Self-Imposed Exile: Where is Ezra? The second reading for the Mass of Ember Wednesday in September:  “And the people wept when they heard Ezra reading the Law”. Ember Wednesday.  Most Catholics have never heard of an Ember Day, this despite the fact that the Ember Days, the Quattuor Tempora in Latin, the four seasons, are among the oldest of liturgical celebrations, at least back to Leo the Great in the fifth century.  They have their roots in the four seasons of the year, and hence before each season of the year—Autumn, Winter, Spring and...

What he did say on September 12, however, would certainly lead to that logical conclusion: "To be modern, some believe that it is necessary to break away from the roots. And this is their ruin, because the roots, the tradition, are the guarantee of the future,” Pope Francis said Sept. 12 ...[i]n an a audience with nearly 200 members of the General Chapter of the Discalced Augustinians, the pope explained that “true tradition” is like the roots that bring a tree sap that...

    Not Authorized: The Untold Story of the Death of the Old Mass Introduction: A Time of Confusion Although it is now frequently claimed that the traditional Latin Mass (TLM) was never abrogated (totally abolished) following the Second Vatican Council, this position is squarely at odds not only with the lived experience of several generations of Catholics, but with the rapid and near total disappearance of the TLM within a brief period of time. For many years after 1970, there was considerable confusion about the legal and sacramental status of the TLM following the publication of the new Missale Romanum of...

    [Catholic Caucus] Latin Mass, Church traditions bring boom in vocations for US order of nuns FAIRFIELD, Pennsylvania, August 13, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – In an age where religious professions are in decline, especially in the United States, one order is looking back in time to buck the trend. The Discalced Carmelites have turned from the modern Church’s reforms of the 1960s and embraced ancient traditions – particularly the traditional Latin Mass. Now their order is booming, with multiple at-capacity monasteries dotting the eastern U.S. Since 2000, the Carmelites have been faced with the sort of challenge many religious orders pine...

    [Catholic Caucus] Young Catholics Tell Bishops: We’re Here for Tradition US bishops' conference asks young people why they're Catholic; they say it's Latin Mass and orthodoxy BALTIMORE (ChurchMilitant.com) - As the U.S. bishops meet in Baltimore, young Catholics on social media said what keeps them Catholic is the Traditional Latin Mass. The social media accounts for the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) posed the question, "If you are a young Catholic who is still Catholic, what has made you stay?" The question received thousands of responses, many of them advocating for tradition and orthodoxy. Many young Catholics cited the Real...

The International Federation Una Voce (FIUV) released a letter yesterday informing the public that Fra’ Giacomo dalla Tore, grand master of the Order of Malta, had misrepresented the provisions of Benedict XVI’s motu proprio, Summorum Pontificum, in his letter. “Since this letter has become public, we would like to observe...

    [Catholic Caucus] US Bishops ask young Catholics why they stayed in Church. They respond it’s the Latin Mass June 13, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – The United States Conference of Catholic Bishops (USCCB) asked young Catholics who haven’t left the faith what made them stay. While their answer may be surprising to many, it will not be to anyone familiar with the state of the Church today. First of all, the USCCB is to be commended for asking young people why they’ve stayed in the Church rather than left; too often Church leadership takes its cues on catechesis and evangelization from...

    [Catholic Caucus] Knights of Malta members suspect Latin Mass banned to ‘cleanse’ order of traditionalists ROME, June 13, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) – Knights and members of one of the oldest Military Orders in the Catholic Church are reeling from the newest directive by their Grand Master banning the traditional Latin Mass for its liturgical ceremonies.  The letter, issued 10 June, reads, in part, that “henceforth all the liturgical ceremonies within (the) Order must be performed according to the ordinary rite of the Church (rite of St. Paul VI) and not the extraordinary rite (Tridentine rite). This decision applies to all the...

    [Catholic Caucus] Knights of the Condom ("Malta") formally forbid Summorum Pontificum The Knights of Malta ended in 2017, with the illegitimate coup promoted by the bishop of Rome. Ever since that time, as we said then, they have simply become the Knights of the Condom. So, it is not surprising that in their new incarnation their wicked and devilish leaders are formally suppressing the Traditional Latin Mass -- it is actually expected.

St. Mary’s “is going back in time in order to move forward,” said WPRI News reporter Julianne Lima...

    [Catholic Caucus] Italian Bishop doubles down on ban of traditional Latin Mass ROME, April 19, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Documents obtained by LifeSite show that an Italian bishop has ordered a priest to cease celebrating the Mass in the Extraordinary Form, after the traditional liturgy drew an increasing number of young lay faithful.  Bishop Antonio Napolioni, of northern Italian diocese of Cremona, is upholding a ten-year ban on the Latin Mass begun by his predecessor, on the grounds that such “objectively disharmonious initiatives” threaten “ecclesial communion” and should not be introduced into the diocese.  Bishop Napolioni has claimed that the Vatican backs...

    [Catholic Caucus] Pope’s House Liturgist: “Limit Access to the Traditional Rite” Andrea Grillo, the liturgist who is heard by Pope Francis, prefers to dispose of Summorum Pontificum today rather than tomorrow and is looking for crown witnesses. (Rome) In the spirit of its political analogues, the ecclesiastical left demands the end of freedom. The liturgical scientist Andrea Grillo, a dogged opponent of the Motu proprio Summorum Pontificum, who finds an open ear in the Italian Episcopal Conference and in Santa Marta, is calling for stricter access to the traditional rite. The free exercise of religion for believers and especially...

    ASK FATHER: Bishop forces priest to use table altar instead of high altar for Extraordinary Form From priest…QUAERITUR: Recently my bishop refused to let me celebrate a Solemn High Mass at the high altar of the Church, insisting altar that is used in the Ordinary Form should be used. So I celebrated the Solemn High on that altar, ad orientem, in obedience. [Praiseworthy.] The argument given was that GIRM #303  [Ooops!] says that once a new altar is consecrated the old high altar should no longer be used for offering of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass. Secondly the bishop...

    Why Is Francis So Afraid of the Roman Rite? During a February 14 audience for the participants in the plenary of the Liturgy Congregation, Pope Francis read a text about the liturgical development of the past fifty years which sounded like a parody compared to what really happened. Francis claimed that in the 1960s the Church's "praying tradition" needed "renewed expressions, without losing anything of its millennial wealth." However, as a result of the changes, the "millennial wealth" was lost, and the "renewed expressions" turned out to be a flop. As if he wanted to make fun about the disaster,...

    Audience with participants in the Plenary of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, 14.02.2019 This Plenary comes at a significant time. Fifty years have passed since, on 8 May 1969, Saint Paul VI wished to establish the then Congregatio pro Cultu Divino, in order to give shape to the renewal desired by Vatican Council II. It was a matter of publishing the liturgical books according to the criteria and decisions of the Council Fathers, with a view to fostering, in the People of God, “active, conscious and pious” participation in the mysteries of Christ (cf....
