    [Catholic Caucus] Athanasius Schneider Pontifical High Mass in Detroit There's no real theme to today's post, just some random smattering of thoughts I put together after returning from Detroit:Today the great Bishop Athanasius Schneider said Mass in Detroit as part of the Call to Holiness event put on by Assumption Grotto. If the name Assumption Grotto sounds familiar, this is the parish of traditional priest Fr. Eduard Perrone of the Archdiocese of Detroit. Some years ago Fr. Perrone was accused of sex abuse and suspended from ministry. Fr. Perrone fought back, however, and was successfully able to demonstrate that...

All place the decision taken by Francis to limit the celebration of the traditional Mass as much as possible in the context of the crisis which is currently shaking the Church, but with very different perspectives.On August 6, there appeared on the Correspondance européenne site, under the pen of Cristiana de Magistris, an article which sees in Traditionis Custodes the act of a weak power: “the document does not appear...

    NOPE: The Pope Calls on Big Tech to Censor More OnlineIn a discussion about equality, Pope Francis called for more censorship online. Pope Francis was discussing how the public views him as a “pest” for defending the poor."Thinking about these situations (of exclusion and inequality), I make a pest of myself with my questions. And I go on asking. And I ask everyone in the name of God," the pope said from the Vatican while participating in the World Meeting of Popular Movements online.He then discussed social media and “hate speech” online, calling on Big Tech platforms to take an...

    [Catholic Caucus] Vatican on the verge of closing down traditional Carmelite monastery in PhiladelphiaThe order has a long history in the archdiocese, but all indications point to Rome uprooting traditional orders. Mass at the Carmelite Monastery of PhiladelphiaAccording to several sources, the Vatican is attempting to shut down the Carmelite monastery in Philadelphia that had been the cradle of devotion to St. Therese of Lisieux in the early 20th century. Collaborating with Archdiocese of Philadelphia Auxiliary Michael Fitzgerald, Rome has now discouraged younger traditional nuns who had moved into the monastery from staying to help some of the elderly nuns,...

    Archbishop Roche: Vatican II’s reform of the Mass is ‘irreversible’In his first public lecture as prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, Archbishop Arthur Roche left no doubt as to the direction the congregation will take under his leadership. He did so by quoting Pope Francis’ words, referring to the reform of the liturgy approved by the Second Vatican Council: “We can affirm with certainty and with magisterial authority that the liturgical reform is irreversible.”The English-born archbishop, whom Pope Francis appointed to succeed Cardinal Robert Sarah as prefect of this congregation on May 27,...

    Gregorius Magnus ^ | Winter 2021 Edition | Joseph Shaw
    Reflecting on Traditionis Custodes on the 50th Anniversary of the English IndultThis twelfth edition of Greogius Magnus is dominated by two contrasting, indeed dissonant, themes. One is Pope Francis’ Apostolic Letter, given Motu Proprio, Traditionis Custodes: a number of reactions to this have been included here. The other is the 50th Anniversary of the English Indult, which was signed by Pope Paul VI on 30th October 1971. It would be useless to deny that Traditionis Custodes is a serious blow to our movement. While many bishops around the world have indicated that they will not restrict the celebration of the...

After his initial interview with LifeSite’s Jim Hale published last week, there were many comments on what he said about the general intention of Rome – namely to destroy the traditional...

    Ethnic Diversity and the Latin MassIn a recent article in the Illinois Times, Massimo Faggioli, a theology professor at Villanova University in Philadelphia, is quoted as follows, of a specific Traditional Mass location:It’s not an accident that all of these Catholics at the old Mass are white, because one of the things that happened after Vatican II was an ‘inculturation’ of the liturgy. …The Latin Mass is white and European by its definition, because it’s a product of the Catholic Church of the 16th century. So, this is creating serious problems because it is never limited to the liturgy only,...

    Hapless Francis Wants to Make "This Church Different”“We must make this Church different. This is the challenge, for a different Church open to new elements,” Francis said at the October 9 opening of the Synodal Synods on Synodality.Contradicting Christ (“the world hates you and hated me first”, John 15), he came up with the idea that “the Church needs more friendship with the world.” Francis paraphrased “the risks” with his usual empty buzzwords: “formalism,” “intellectualism,” “the temptation of complacency.”Luxembourg Cardinal Hollerich, the synod’s relator general, confessed that he had “no idea” what kind of work instrument he will be writing,...

    TRADITIONIS CUSTODES: Separating Fact from FictionWhen, on July 16, 2021, Pope Francis promulgated Traditionis Custodes, restricting the traditional Latin Mass, he said that according to the results of a recent Vatican consultation of bishops, the norms of his predecessors Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI, had been exploited by some who attend the traditional Latin Mass to sow dissent from the Second Vatican Council. In the apostolic letter, Pope Francis writes in regard to the survey of bishops:“In line with the initiative of my Venerable Predecessor Benedict XVI to invite the bishops to assess the application of the...
