Another will replace the document Liturgiam authenticam (2001) which controls the quality of Novus Ordo liturgical translations.La-Croix.com further knows that Francis' suppression of the Ecclesia Dei Commission which was responsible for the Roman Rite, was an act of vengeance because Ecclesia Dei had authorised the Holy Week celebration according to the 1954 Roman Missal which Pius XII in 1955 replaced with...

I haven’t been there in quite some time; nearly a decade in fact.The church has a specific meaning to me; it’s where my family are buried, it’s where I was baptized and received the sacraments. Above the door stands a stone commemorating my great, great, great grandfather who, in 1818 paid for its construction; the first church where we could worship after the two centuries-long persecution of the Reformation.Advertisement - Continue Reading BelowFamily tradition says that he was awarded the honour of ringing the Angelus bell for...

    Egyptian Pope Distances Himself From Francis’ "Abrahamic Religion"The [Francis’] idea of an Abrahamic Religion comprising Judaism, Christianity and Islam indiscriminately is “categorically unacceptable,” Coptic Pope Tawadros II told the Egyptian state TV (January 7).The concept of "Abrahamic Religion" denies the three monotheistic religions, Tawadros explains. For him, this is a "political idea" used to blur the differences between Judaism, Christianity and Islam.Religions are “like colours, cannot be changed or replaced by innovation or adding false information to the constants of a given religion,” Tawadros explained.He further declared that the priesthood is reserved for men only, according to Christ's will who...

    Pope Francis: Synodality is Not a ‘Search for Majority Consensus’“Let us remember, in this regard, that synodality is not a simple discussion. It is not an ‘adjective.’ Never ‘adjectivize’ the substantiality of life.”VATICAN CITY — Pope Francis said on Thursday that synodality is not a “search for majority consensus,” but rather a “style” guided by the Holy Spirit. The Pope made the remark in an address to a delegation of French Catholic Action groups at the Vatican on Jan. 13. “The Church as a whole is also engaged in a synodal process, and I count on your contribution,” he...

    [Catholic Caucus] The Backward Logic of Traditionis CustodesInsofar as Traditionis Custodes provides any explanation for its open hostility toward Catholic traditionalists, that explanation lies in the claim that traditionalist communities have caused divisions within the Church. Therefore, Pope Francis suggests (and the Congregation for Divine Worship even more sternly insists) traditionalism must be suppressed.That logic is backward. It was not the traditionalist movement—much less the traditional liturgy—that exacerbated divisions within Catholicism. It was the current Vatican leadership—the very leadership that is now looking for a scapegoat to blame.For several decades after Vatican II, Catholics who might, for want of a...

    What if the Pre-Vatican II Popes Were Actually Right? Whether we think of him as an anti-pope or merely one of the the worst popes in history, the fact remains that Francis has arrogated to himself a power that no pope can ever have: to reshape the Holy Catholic Church to fit the anti-Catholic objectives of the globalists. Even if we consider him to be far worse than his immediate predecessors, though, we have to look back to the pre-Vatican II popes if we want to find Successors of Peter who assiduously defended the Mystical Body of Christ. And...
