More Background About the Old Rite Questionnaire
“It seems that Francis came in contact with some priests who practice the traditional liturgy and that he realised for himself that they are not ‘rigid’, even a little bit.”
Francis also sees the vitality of the Old Rite, and therefore he wanted to understand the phenomenon.
MarcoTosatti.com believes that the inquiry is “perhaps” not motivated by “a negative will.”
He knows that it is done according to geographical areas: Asia, then America and soon Europe.
MarcoTosatti.com excludes that there are plans to “forbid” the Old Mass, also because this would be impossible, but rather to limit it by forbidding the pre-1955 Holy Week cancelling the general permission to celebrate it, and thus limited it to the circle of Old Rite priestly communities.
