Roche The Hypocrite: Liturgical Warmonger Complains About Liturgical War

There's never been such a strong controversy over the liturgy as today and this is a "tragedy," Neo-Cardinal Arthur Roche, Prefect of the Liturgy …

Wij hebben een stervende Protestantse Novus Ordo Rooms katholieke kerk en een bloeiende Vetus Ordo Tridentijnse, Romeinse, katholieke kerk. Deze twee organisatie zijn definitief gescheiden van elkaar, ze leven op voet van oorlog met elkaar.

He sounds like a real jerk with power and authority and spite. But he's wearing the clothes of a holy man, so he is supposed to elicit our respect and obedience. That's the way the Church works today. I think Canon212 would call him a FrancisThug.

Today, he is “Lying Uncle Arthur” over there.

Since this is apparently a totally normal situation, I am sure he can provide dozens of examples of times in the past when an ancient and universal liturgy was forcibly suppressed and an entirely new one was written and put in its place.

Josef Jungmann died in 1975, not at the beginning of the 21st century, as Roche claims in the interview.

"Q: Turning to liturgy and reform. There have been many debates recently about liturgy, particularly the Eucharist. Why, in your view, does something that should unite us continue to be so contentious?
There have been opinions expressed about particular concerns. For example, very shortly after the chalice was withdrawn from Holy Communion for everybody who attended Mass, there was a controversy over that, but there's never been a controversy about the liturgy in the way that we're experiencing it today, partly because there has never before been two versions of the Roman Missal –the Roman Missal from 1962, and then the Roman Missal from 1970, which was produced with the full force of the Second Vatican Council behind it and promulgated by Pope Saint Paul VI.
It's a tragedy that there is this controversy today, the so-called ‘battles’ over liturgy, because the Eucharist is, by its nature, the sacrament that unites the entire Church.
And as the Holy Father has pointed out in his Traditionis custodes, there is one liturgical law which assists us in our belief in transmitting the Church's doctrine. So, the reform of the liturgy is really a very important matter today and also not something to be taken as an option.
But one of the problems, challenges, of our age is the growth in individualism and in relativism, that ‘I prefer this.’ Well, the celebration of the Mass is not something to be a matter of personal choice. We celebrate as a community, as the entire Church and the Church throughout the centuries, has always regulated the form of liturgy that it has come to believe is more pertinent for a particular age.
Father [Jozef Andreas] Jungmann, an Austrian Jesuit who only died at the beginning of this century, was someone who, in his studies, showed how over the centuries the Mass has been changed in this way in order to fit the needs of the day. And the resistance to this is quite a serious matter, which the Pope has pointed out in his document on the liturgy, Traditionis custodes.
So, all that is taking place is the regulation of the former liturgy of 1962 Missal by stopping the promotion of that, because it was clear that the Council, the Bishops of the Council, under the inspiration of the Holy Spirit, were putting forward a new liturgy for the vital life of the Church, for its vitality. And that's really very important. And to resist that is, is something that is really quite serious, too."
