Papa locuto - Roma finita: Francis Declares War On the Church
Repeatedly and rigidly, Francis declares in the accompanying letter that he “suspends” and “revokes the faculty granted by my Predecessors” to celebrate the Roman Mass.
He who keeps encouraging divisions that injure the Church, blames Latin Mass Catholics of trying to “widen the gaps, reinforce the divergences, and encourage disagreements that injure the Church, block her path, and expose her to the peril of division.”
Sarcastically, Francis alleges that those who want the Roman Mass can find it in the Novus Ordo. “Whoever wishes to celebrate with devotion according to earlier forms of the liturgy can find in the reformed Roman Missal according to Vatican Council II all the elements of the Roman Rite, in particular the Roman Canon which constitutes one of its more distinctive elements,” he claims.
In reality, the Novus Ordo as contained in the 1970 Missal never existed. From the beginning, it was replaced by a hodgepodge of liturgical experiments, according to the principle "anything goes."
Francis compares his attempt to abrogate the Roman Mass which originates from Apostolic Times with St Pius V (+1572) who in the 16th century abrogated rites that “could not claim a proven antiquity” - which is precisely the case of Paul VI's Novus Ordo.
He spreads the falsehood that the bishops asked during Vatican II to reform the Mass although studies (e.g. by Father Brian Harrison) have proven the opposite. Changing the liturgy was no request of the bishops.
Francis asks the bishops to make the Catholics to return in due time to the Novus Ordo and to discontinue the erection of new personal parishes which according to Francis do not correspond to "the real need of the ‘holy People of God’.” In reality, they attract young families while Novus Ordo ceremonies are gatherings of Francis' peers who is 84.
Traditionis Custodes is a declaration of war which Francis will lose because he has only lukewarm and overaged Catholics on his site who - according to the Revelation of Saint John - "I am about to spit out of my mouth" (Rev 3,16).
