Solesmes Abbot Defends Liturgical Confusion, Attacks Fraternity of Saint Peter

Dom Geoffroy Kemlin, 43, the new abbot of the famous Solesmes Monastery, France, does “understand” Traditionis Custodes (FamilleChretienne.fr, May 30).

Solesmes is Novus Ordo but experiences a strong competition from Roman Rite monasteries. According to Kemlin, Francis' TD wants to remember "the unity of the liturgy in the Church.” Kemlin cannot not know that the Novus Ordo is precisely destroying this "unity."

Kemlin agrees with Francis that “under the pretext of being able to choose the liturgical form, we could choose in the magisterium and leave aside the Second Vatican Council.” But to choose and manipulate the liturgical form is the essence of the Novus Ordo.

As a consequence, Kemlin attacks Francis ("I understood less") for having "allowed" the Fraternity St Peter to continue with the Roman Rite, "This decision seems to mean that there are two separate Churches: one that celebrates in the renewed form and another with groups that use the ancient form.”

Interestingly, Kemlin himself first entered the Roman Rite monastery in Fontgombault which belongs to Solesmes congregation and recognises Kemlin as their Abbot General.

The Roman Rite abbots of Solesmes congregation co-preside when being in Solesmes and Kemlin speaks of an “unbreakable unity” between the Eucharist monasteries and the Mass monasteries in his congregation.

That's it. One Church is in the unity with Catholics and Church Triumphant of all ages and the second one - with less than 60 year old "renewal".More
