The person who wrote this does not know the Latin Mass.

Zero citations for this article and a claim like "after he had sung the Gospel." further undermines its credibility since the Gospel is read, not "sung". It's common for TLM priests to give the readings in Latin -and then- give them in the vernacular along with the sermon or homily.

On hearing the Gospel read in the vernacualr, someone who wasn't familiar with the traditional Latin Mass might wrongly assume it hadn't already been read in Latin.

Incensing the lectionary is traditional. If the priest was using his mobile phone as a lectionary then it was both licit and required for him to incense it.

At a high Mass the Gospel is 1st Sung(chanted) in Latin then often Read at pulpit before homily. The article is oddly written.

Do you see the words "High Mass" in the article? No? Neither do I. ;-)

@Ultraviolet Incense is used at a High Mass not at a low Mass.
Your ignorance is showing

Not always. Clearly this is going to end up in Citation Land.... "Low Mass in the traditional rite is celebrated by one priest, and usually only one or two altar servers. The words of Mass are read instead of chanted, there is incense...

The reverse is also true, which is why at least one Altar Server's Handbook includes the chapter In the Case of more than Three Servers at a High Mass More

The reverse is also true, which is why at least one Altar Server's Handbook includes the chapter In the Case of more than Three Servers at a High Mass without Incense.

The only thing that's showing is your presumption, dear heart. ;-)

I am not getting why this is problematic -- he reverently did the Mass? He was going to use the Phone so he incensed it? Explain this one to me?

If you don’t get it, then there’s no use of an explanation

If there was no 1962 Missal available but He was there to offer the Traditional Liturgy. Certainly not the norm, but a call made by the priest in that situation.
I don't think that qualifies as an abuse? I don't believe there was any malice involved.

@Georgia59 There is no place for the profane in the sacred.

@rhemes1582 There was a traditional missal. But no German readings. He was not willing to read in Latin.

@Eva that seems very much in contradiction for an FSSP priest.
Something is not right here.
