    The fight for tradition after Vatican II is as old as the council itselfFollowing Vatican II to our present hour, writers and artists have rallied to the defense of tradition. We see this in the responses of many highly capable minds grappling with the same questions at the beginning that we are grappling with today.Throughout the decades following Vatican II, many great thinkers and artists have understood the importance of preserving Catholic tradition, including the magnificent rite of the Mass in the Tridentine form. They have recognized both the acute danger to the faith and the cultural impoverishment posed by...

    [Catholic Caucus] Pope’s Restrictions Spark Resurgence of Interest in Traditional Mass Among YouthTwo French Catholic writers analyze how Traditionis Custodes is fueling a Traditional Mass movement among young CatholicsThe authors of two articles published in the progressive French Catholic daily La Croix have drawn attention to how Pope Francis’ restrictions on the Traditional Latin Mass have fueled a growth in support for the ancient liturgy among young Catholics, producing the opposite effect to what was intended and posing a dilemma for bishops and for Rome. In a June 4 article headlined “Young Trads: ‘Bishops Must Seek a New Balance,’” French...

    Swiss Bishop Eleganti: Vatican II contains ‘ambiguity,’ young Catholics love the Latin Mass‘Today's young believers, as I was able to see very well as a young bishop, know nothing about the (Second Vatican) council and are not interested in it. They have hardly read any of the texts, but feel attracted to the old liturgy,’ Bishop Marian Eleganti said.Personally, I do make a distinction between Vatican I, which presented an infallible dogmatization, and Vatican II, which avowedly wanted to be (only) a pastoral council. It is understandable that it wanted to incorporate the top statements of Vatican I into the...

We are afraid so: Yes!—and judging by the unspeakable outbursts of the papal court theologian Grillo, one not only may speak of “war”, one must.But let’s take the news of the last few days in turn. First of all, there is the case of the “Missionaries of Divine Mercy”—a small community of diocesan right founded by the (now...

    [Catholic Caucus] The Game: What Now For the Traditional Mass Under Francis? - Op-EdDuring the pontificate of Pope Francis, we have seen a careful game being played by the Vatican and their allies when it comes to dealing with Catholics drawn to the Traditional Latin Mass. When they attempt to downplay traditionalists, they are an irrelevant sect, with numbers so insignificant none should take them seriously. After this approach, they then flip, treating traditionalists as a threat to the unity of the Church, a threat so severe the ordinary rights of clerics and the faithful must be curtailed. This mentality...

    [Catholic Caucus] Accept or Reject the New Mass?Just days after Pope Benedict XVI issued Summorum Pontificum, Italy’s Bishop Luca Brandolini—who had been a close collaborator of Archbishop Annibale Bugnini—stated, “This day is for me a day of grief. I have a lump in my throat and I do not manage to hold back my tears…Today, a reform for which so many labored, at the cost of great sacrifices…has been canceled.”Hard as it may seem to avoid laughing at the absurdity of claiming that allowing the ancient form of the Roman Mass the rather second-class and exceptional status of an “extraordinary”...

    [Catholic Caucus] Banning the TLM (Again): Latest DevelopmentsCredible rumors shared by Rorate Caeli about a renewed crackdown on the Roman Rite, coinciding with the third anniversary of Traditionis Custodes, have prompted an interesting debate on what sort of trick the Vatican may have up its sleeve and how, in turn, individual dioceses and Traditional Latin Mass communities will play their hand. In its letter published last week, Rorate cautioned readers that the ideologues responsible for Traditionis Custodes are “frustrated with its apparently slow results” and are now seeking a new ban that would be as “wide, final, and irreversible as...

Well-informed sources have confirmed that the new document, if published, would prohibit all priests other than those belonging to approved ex-Ecclesia Dei institutes from offering the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the...

    [Catholic Caucus] A University Student Reflects on His Discovery of and Love for the TLMSubmitted to Rorate by a graduate of Franciscan University of Steubenville who has just completed his Masters degree.Over the past week there has been abundant speculation and commentary on the possibility of yet another Vatican ban on the Traditional Latin Mass, or the Mass of the Ages. This should come as no surprise. The fides qua of these faithful devotees to the TLM are primarily at odds with what has come from the Vatican in recent years.[1] Rumors of another act against the TLM, while not...

    [Catholic Caucus] The Prominence of St John the Baptist in the Old Roman RiteEach year in the Western rites of the Catholic Church, the birthday or nativity of St John the Baptist, Precursor of the Lord, is celebrated on June 24, exactly six months away from the nativity of Jesus Christ Our Lord. The simplest explanation for the date is that, as the St. Andrew’s Daily Missal says, “in the Gospel of March 25th we read that the angel Gabriel announced to Mary that three months later [i.e., end of June], Elizabeth, in virtue of a divine miracle, would have...

    [Catholic Caucus] A new offensive in the war on traditional liturgyRome’s rumor mills are buzzing. According to multiple sources, a new Vatican document is being prepared, which would impose still tighter restrictions on the celebration of the Traditional Latin Mass (TLM). If approved in its current form, our informants tell us, the document would bar diocesan priests from celebrating the TLM; only the communities specially formed around the old liturgy (the Priestly Fraternity of St. Peter, the Institute of Christ the King, etc.) would be allowed to use the ancient rite. Whether these reports are entirely accurate, and whether the...

    [Catholic Caucus] The Faithful React to Dark Rumors about the TLMFred Simon was born before Vatican II. He still remembers the ornate gothic paintings in the German parish where he attended Mass with his father and grandfather. Then, one day, the entire interior was whitewashed and a new altar was placed in the middle of the sanctuary. It was the beginning of Simon’s exile from the TLM. Years later, after a priest invited him to see a TLM, Simon found his way back to the Mass of the Ages. He was “awed by the reverence and holiness” he witnessed on...
