MELTDOWN: Round-Up of Reactions to Francis’ Suppression of the Traditional Latin Mass
Now that almost two weeks have passed since the release of Traditionis Custodes, “Pope” Francis’ motu proprio “Apostolic Letter” that severely limits (and gradually eliminates) the Traditional Latin Mass (1962 Missal), a lot of reactions have poured in from various quarters of the Vatican II Church; especially, of course, from those who consider themselves traditionalists, since they are the ones negatively affected by the suppression of Benedict XVI’s Summorum Pontificum.
By phasing out the Traditional Latin Mass (aka Tridentine Mass), a decision he allegedly made based on answers procured through a questionnaire process, Francis has ripped the heart out of the traditionalists in his church.… READ MORE

The popular podcast program FRANCIS WATCH has returned with a special edition dedicated to the release of Traditionis Custodes, the “Apostolic Letter” with which Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”) severely restricts and gradually phases out the Traditional Latin Mass, or more specifially, the use of the Roman Missal of 1962 and before.
Novus Ordo Watch is pleased to sponsor this important episode, in which host Matthew Gaskin of True Restoration analyses with his distinguished guest, Bp.… READ MORE

SSPX Superior General blasts Traditionis Custodes:
A Sedevacantist Critique
SSPX Superior General, Fr. Davide Pagliarani
Yesterday, on July 22, 2021, the headquarters of the Lefebvrist Society of Saint Pius X (FSSPX or SSPX) in Menzingen, Switzerland, released an official Letter from its Superior General, Fr. Davide Pagliarani, in response to the recent “Apostolic Letter” issued motu proprio by “Pope” Francis, Traditionis Custodes, which severely limits the use of the Roman Missal of 1962 (“Traditional Latin Mass”) and eventually phases it out completely. It can be found here:
Unlike the polemical article “From the Reserve to the Zoo” which the SSPX news team had released on July 17, this more formal reaction from the Superior General is quite different in tone, yet just as stern on the issues.… READ MORE
Pope St. Pius X slams Recognize-and-Resist: ‘Ultimate Criterion of Orthodoxy is Obedience to Living Magisterium’
There is Catholic Tradition and then there is “Catholic Tradition”.
The former is what one actually finds in the traditional (i.e. pre-Vatican II) Catholic theology books and the pronouncements of the papal magisterium, whereas the latter is a popularly-accepted caricature thereof that consists of an assortment of quasi-theological ideas cobbled together from select quotations and slogans that were once popularized by recognize-and-resist apologists like Michael Davies (1936-2004) and have been perpetuated ever since by the Lefebvrists and their theological cousins.
One only has to think of how these would-be traditionalists frequently appeal to alleged “papolatry”, “Ultramontanism”, and “false obedience” to justify their position, and how they make arguments along the lines of “we’ve had bad Popes before”, “St.… READ MORE
Rorate Cæli Blog Removes Picture of “Pope” Francis
The popular pseudo-traditionalist blog Rorate Caeli has not taken too kindly to the revocation of Summorum Pontificum by Jorge Bergoglio (“Pope Francis”), the man they stubbornly recognize as head of the Catholic Church while refusing him submission. Francis’ document Traditionis Custodes has thrown them all into complete shock, and by decreeing that it take immediate effect, they do not even have a grace period in which to catch their breath and gather their senses.
Now that a few days have passed since the release of the new motu proprio, it looks like the editors of Rorate Caeli could no longer stand looking at the man they supposedly honor as the Vicar of Jesus Christ on earth, Father and Teacher of all Christians.… READ MORE

From the Reserve to the Zoo: Society of St. Pius X slams Francis’ Decree against Traditional Latin Mass
On Saturday, July 17, 2021, one day after the release of “Pope” Francis’ decree Traditionis Custodes, the Lefebvrist Society of St. Pius X published a scathing but humorous response, in which it accuses the supposed Vicar of Christ of “caging” the Traditional Latin Mass and forcibly administering a “vaccination” against Lefebvrism. In this way, the SSPX contends, he seeks to marginalize Tradition-loving Catholics with the ultimate goal of driving them into extinction.
So far, the SSPX statement has been released in French only, available here.… READ MORE

The Church has further used her right of control over liturgical observance to protect the purity of divine worship against abuse from dangerous and imprudent innovations introduced by private individuals and particular churches. Thus it came about — during the 16th century, when usages and customs of this sort had become increasingly prevalent and exaggerated, and when private initiative in matters liturgical threatened to compromise the integrity of faith and devotion, to the great advantage of heretics and further spread of their errors — that in the year 1588, Our predecessor Sixtus V of immortal memory established the Sacred Congregation of Rites, charged with the defense of the legitimate rites of the Church and with the prohibition of any spurious innovation.

The Party Is Over: Francis kills ‘Summorum Pontificum’, severely limits Use of 1962 Missal
[LAST UPDATED: 16-JUL-2021 12:44 UTC]
Breaking news from Vatican City: Benedict XVI’s motu proprio letter Summorum Pontificum, which introduced the wide acceptance of the so-called Traditional Latin Mass, that is, the use of the Roncalli Missal of 1962, is history.
With a stroke of the pen, the phony “Vicar of Christ” Jorge Bergoglio, also known as “Pope” Francis, has abrogated the document the traditionalists in the Vatican II Church have clung to as the bedrock enabling their “Latin Mass culture”. Logical chickens are now coming home to roost.… READ MORE
