Traditionis Custodes is Francis' Revenge on Benedict XVI - Mosebach
"The Old Mass no longer has a definable status.” Mosebach never excluded such a move given Francis' [vindictive] personality, but had assumed that Francis would have waited "in the spirit of curial courtesy" until after Benedict XVI's death.
Mosebach suspects a personal revenge: "Francis has not forgiven Benedict for influencing the outcome of the Amazon Synod with his book on the priesthood at the beginning of 2020 and for messing up the desired abolition of celibacy."
This, Mosebach says, has made Francis very angry: "Now he has retaliated by going against the Old Mass, that is, the liturgy which was a matter close to Benedict's heart and which he had explicitly rehabilitated."
The Novus Ordo sacraments are "simply seriously deficient," Mosebach observes, citing baptism as an example. Before, baptism began with the question, "What do you desire from the Church?" The answer was, "Faith." Today the [trivial] answer is: "Baptism".
Mosebach addressed Benedict XVI on this point who said that he "tremendously regretted" not having reversed this in his pontificate." On the other hand, Benedict was not even able to correct the falsely translated words of consecration.
