    Novus Ordo Watch ^ | July 16, 2022 | (No author indicated)
    Although this has not yet been announced officially, the news has already been leaked: Tomorrow, July 17, the Archlayman of Chicago, ‘Cardinal’ Blase Cupich, will announce that the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest (ICKSP) will be shut down in Chicago effective August 1. The ICKSP is a Traditional Latin Mass community founded in 1990 that uses only the Roman Missal of 1962. It is one of the so-called “Ecclesia Dei communities”, meaning they have always been in full communion with the Vatican II Church and are operating on the basis of the indult granted by “Pope” John Paul...

    Fribourg, February 21, 2022 On Friday, February 4, 2022, two members of the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, Fr. Benoît Paul-Joseph, Superior of the District of France, and Fr. Vincent Ribeton, Rector of St. Peter’s Seminary in Wigratzbad, were received in private audience by the Holy Father, Pope Francis, for nearly an hour. During the very cordial meeting, they recalled the origins of the Fraternity in 1988, the Pope expressed that he was very impressed by the approach taken by its founders, their desire to remain faithful to the Roman Pontiff and their trust in the Church. He said that...

    CHICAGO ( - A top cardinal, one who presides over liturgical abuses and incorporates pagan elements from Taoism and Hinduism into the Holy Eucharist, is doubling down on attacking the Traditional Latin Mass in his Chicago archdiocese. Cardinal Blase Cupich, who permits high-profile LGBT+ Masses, published a five-page policy two days after Christmas, prohibiting the celebration of the TLM on the first Sunday of every month, Christmas, the Triduum of Holy Week, Easter Sunday and Pentecost Sunday. The prelate, who publicly opposed bishops seeking to withhold Holy Communion from pro-abortion President Joe Biden, has promulgated his own rules implementing Pope...

    Example, Pope Francis said: "The Eucharist is the bread of sinners, not the reward of saints." But where is the follow-up at? That's step 1, but steps 2 and 3 are lacking. Step 2: Jesus told the woman caught in the act of adultery He didn't condemn her, but He also said "Go and sin no more." He loved her and showed love but He didn't love what she was doing. Step 3: "Adultery is listed in 1 Cor. 6:9-10 with others and you need to confess mortal sins before you can receive the host. Why does he repeatedly, on...

    The Next Conclave: A Nightmare ScenarioJuly 17, 2021 (Steven O’Reilly) – Yesterday, Pope Francis issued Traditionis Custodes, his motu proprio which places significant restrictions on the Traditional Latin Mass (TLM) going forward. I will not comment in great detail on its harsh measures as others have already done so. However, for the ‘pope of mercy’ who speaks often of those on the ‘peripheries’ of the Church, it is clear neither his mercy nor the peripheries extend as far as those attached to the TLM. “Irreversible Change“ One of the oddities of Traditionis Custodes is not so much that Francis did...

  • Twelve quick thoughts on Pope Francis dropping his long-expected bomb on the traditional latin Mass

    Twelve quick thoughts on Pope Francis dropping his long-expected bomb on the traditional latin Mass 1) In his motu proprio Traditionis Custodes, Pope Francis says St. John Paul II’s indults were only meant to heal the breach with Archbishop Lefebvre, not to have the traditional latin Mass as a continuing reality in the Church (my paraphrase). He quotes Pope Benedict XVI on “allowing” the TLM, which seems to buttress the point of traditionalist writer Peter Kwasnieski’s criticism of even Benedict’s outreach in Summorum Pontificum.2) He calls the Novus Ordo “one of the key measures” of Vatican II. The Novus...

    The Persecution Has Started: English Monastery Stops Celebrating Roman Mass Following Francis' Traditionis Custodes and instructions from Clifton Bishop Declan Lang, 71, England, the two Glastonbury Benedictines end celebrating the Roman Rite.Father Bede Rowe announced on his blog on July 17 that Saturday's 12.30pm Roman Mass at Glastonbury will be the last there.Until now, the community, which was erected by Bishop Lang in August 2019, sang the Divine Office and the Conventual Mass according to the Roman Rite, which St Benedict already knew. The monks also serve Novus Ordo parishes. They are based in a presbytery and are thus at...

    The real reason Francis hates the Latin MassDear Friends: The bad news keeps rolling in out of the Eternal City, but we’re more determined than ever to keep the clans united and to keep the momentum going. Thank God, Francis Fatigue is in full swing even among many who are not Traditional Catholics. In this exclusive, I consider the question of why in the middle of global upheaval, apostasy, and pandemic, Francis is focusing his papal sights not a church wracked with apostasy, but rather on the small remnant of believers who wish simply to attend the Mass of...

Modernists have protested ad orientem worship"Previous norms, instructions, permissions and customs that do not conform to the provisions of the present motu proprio are abrogated," Francis declared in his motu proprio euphemistically titled Traditionis Custodes (Guardians of the Tradition).The new decree, subtitled "On the Use of the Roman Liturgy Prior to the Reform of 1970," severely restricts Summorum Pontificum (SP) —...

    Dear Friends: Don’t be discouraged. God is in charge of everything, and this would not be happening if He did not allow it. This has all happened before. I know, I remember, I lived through it. This is a chastisement, yes, but it does not alter what we are called to do: We must know, love, and serve God, and resist those who do not. Francis has no power to change that. There is no mystery here. . . no surprise. We know exactly what this is. It's all about the crumbling facade of Vatican II, shuttered churches, empty seminaries,...

    The bomb has been dropped. Today Pope Francis issued his motu proprio Traditionis custodes severely restricting the celebration of the traditional Latin Mass. In effect, it wipes out Pope Benedict’s 14-year-old motu proprio, Summorum Pontificum, which was issued in order to help those faithful who “continued to be attached with such love and affection to the earlier liturgical forms which had deeply shaped their culture and spirit.” Apparently Pope Francis doesn’t think that’s necessary anymore. I’m not going to analyze the details of the new motu proprio here—you can find that elsewhere. Instead I’d like to share my initial reaction...

    [Catholic Caucus] A RORATE CÆLI Editorial: The Attack of Hatred and Vengeance Against the Latin Mass Should be Ignored As confident as we were in our sources forecasting today as the day of reckoning for Summorum Pontificum and the traditional Latin Mass as we know it, in the back of our minds we had hoped it was merely an unfounded rumor. After all, Pope Benedict XVI is not only alive, but fully cognizant, dressed in a white cassock while living in the Vatican gardens. To that end, would a sitting pope be so arrogant as to publicly humiliate the 94...
