Has Persecution Started? Archdioceses Ends Roman Mass

Father Philip Wilhite of Sacred Heart Church in Conroe, Galveston-Houston Archdiocese, Texas, announced that the Traditional Latin Mass in his church will be discontinued.

“After due consideration, conversations with the Archdiocese, and to best serve the spiritual needs of those who prefer the Extraordinary Form, we will transition from offering this form here at Sacred Heart to encouraging all to be active parishioners of Regina Caeli Catholic Church,” he wrote on FaceBook.com (June 2). One wonders what "due consideration" means and whether this measure is meant to promote sanitary Covid distancing.

The last Mass in Sacred Heart will be celebrated on June 9. After that, only Eucharists will be presided. The Regina Caeli Church in Houston is run by the Fraternity of St Peter (FSSP) and about 36 miles (58km) away from Sacred Heart.

The weekly Mass at Sacred Heart existed only for six months. Galveston-Houston Archdiocese is run by Cardinal DiNardo who in December 2015 participated personally presided over the blessing of the grounds and the ceremonial groundbreaking for the FSSP parish.

Best of all, the distance to the new parish is negligible, especially in the vast US state of Texas.

It's a 40 minute drive at the "55 miles/hour" speed limit. At "Texas Travellin' Speeds" it's only 30 minutes. :D

Why do so many bishops hate the true Mass? Is it because they hate the true faith?

Pretty much this. They hate its "rigidity" and the inherently conservative political culture it fosters, both utterly contrarty to the Contempo Catholic Church as personified by you-know-who.

The persecution started so long ago, we don't even recognize it as persecution; abortion legislation; separation of Church and state; burning of Churches, prevention of our attending Mass and receiving sacraments, priests and bishops who openly oppose the God's laws, main stream media who have linked pedophilia and priests for years,....
