‘The old Catholic liturgy threatens the diabolical New World Order to which Francis has signed on,’ said Michael Matt of The Remnant newspaper. ‘The Latin Mass united Catholics from every country in the world for a couple of thousand years like no government ever could. And it was in the process of doing so again.’

The Traditional-loving Catholics are in grief today…
According to the report published by Life Site News,
” This morning Pope Francis issued a motu proprio called Traditionis custodes, which sets strict limits on the use of the Traditional Latin Mass, a rite Pope Benedict called “the Extraordinary Form of the Mass” in his own July 2007 motu proprio Summorum Pontificum. A critic of the liturgical “reforms” that followed, and contradicted, Vatican II, Benedict XVI gave Catholic priests the green light to celebrate the 1962 “Mass of John XXIII” without asking their bishops’ permission. In a letter that accompanied his official motu proprio, Pope Francis indicated that he believes that Catholics have abused Benedict’s provisions and that those who love the Traditional Mass reject Vatican II.
“Pope Francis appears to be punishing all priests who celebrate the Traditional Mass and all the laity who attend it for the alleged sins of a few: who ‘reject Vatican II’, whatever exactly that means,” Dr. Joseph Shaw, the president of the Latin Mass Society of England and Wales, told LifeSiteNews today via social media.”
“The practical effect of this document, however, insofar as it is implemented, will be to marginalize and therefore to radicalize Catholics attached to the older Missal,” he continued.
“It is extraordinary that thousands of faithful Catholics who responded to the favorable attitude of Pope John Paul II and Pope Benedict XVI to the ancient Mass, to celebrate or attend it in complete unity with their bishops and with the Holy Father have suddenly been made outcasts. If bishops are true to be expected to govern and guide the use of the 1962 Missal in their dioceses, banning its celebration in parish churches will severely hamper their efforts to do so, and seems completely unworkable.”

The liturgical scholar Dr. Peter Kwasniewski said that Pope Francis’s overturning of Summorum Pontificum was “unprecedented.”
“The motu proprio itself is the exact antithesis of Summorum Pontificum and the accompanying letter is the exact antithesis of the letter that accompanied Summorum Pontificum,” Kwasniewski stated.
“In the whole history of the Church, there has never been so dramatic a rejection of a Pope’s predecessor. Never. This is unprecedented, and I can say that quite confidently.”
A tradition-loving teenager, 19-year-old Sophia Tait, told LifeSitenews via social media, that it feels like an “ax” has been “taken to the roots” of her life.
“I’m frightened and saddened for the Church as a whole, but on a personal level, it feels like having an ax taken to the roots of my life- so much of what I’ve been working for, hoping for, or giving time to this past year has been bound up with the traditional Mass,” Tait stated.
“My family discovered the traditional liturgy only recently, and we’ve all been strengthened and supported by it through what’s been a crazy year in so many ways,” she added.
“It’s there that I’ve found both a certain, stable base and a constant challenge to a deeper practice of the faith. Now hearing the Church authorities condemn the Mass we’ve all grown to love, I’m lost and confused. I want to do God’s will, in obedience to His Church, and it’s so hard to see how we’re supposed to do that now.”
One American bishop, Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone of San Francisco, promised the faithful they would still be able to access the Old Mass in his jurisdiction. “The Mass is a miracle in any form: Christ comes to us in the flesh under the appearance of Bread and Wine,” he told CNA today. “Unity under Christ is what matters. Therefore the Traditional Latin Mass will continue to be available here in the Archdiocese of San Francisco and provided in response to the legitimate needs and desires of the faithful.”
