Scorched Earth Pastoral Care: “I Feel Rejected by Francis”

Mistrust.
The French magazine La Vie visited Saint-Eugène Parish in Paris where in 1989, Cardinal Lustiger appointed two parish priests, one for the Mass, and one for the Eucharist. Camille, 36 years old, an active parishioner, told La Vie that Francis’ Traditionis Custodes “was like a blow to my stomach.” A year later, the subject is still painful for her. Camille was brought up with clandestine Roman Rite masses in cellars or private chapels, then joined the Novus Ordo but returned a few years ago. "My dish was missing some salt," she explains. Around her, Traditionis Custodes has nourished a certain mistrust of Rome.

Rejected. Fanny Bornot, a human resources manager, now president of the Saint-Eugène support association, joined the parish in 1989. She grew up in the Novus Ordo but embraced the Roman Rite "for the sense of the sacred, the beauty of the liturgy". About Traditionis Custodes she says, "We participate in the economic life of our parish and the diocese, we pray at every mass, every vesper for the pope and the bishop... I had the feeling of being rejected by Francis.” Now, Franny lives in anxiety, Quote, "Last year, we had 10 adult baptisms at the Easter Vigil: can we do without such lively communities, while the churches are emptying? – she asks. At the Sunday Mass the Church is full, even in mid-July. Most of the faithful are young people and families.

Confrontation. Gonzague, 33, returned to the faith through the Roman Mass and arrived in 2008 at Saint-Eugène, "I didn't experience the confrontation at the time of the Council, the clandestine masses, the conflicts... I don't define myself as a tradi, just a Catholic!” – he says. But Traditionis Custodes put him in a situation of confrontation with the Church, against his will. Quote, “We are being pushed towards the Society of St. Pius X!”

Pushed Out. “We have chosen to be faithful to Rome and we are being pushed out," says Maxence, a parishioner for 17 years with his wife, Geneviève. They travel every Sunday with their little boy, Benoît, to come to Saint-Eugène. They do not recognise themselves in Francis’ uncharitable description of Roman Rite Catholics. "We found his words very violent.”
