Traditionis Custodes praises Benedict XVI’s Summorum Pontificum in order to destroy the work he accomplished with it.
For Specula, writing on InfoVaticana.com (July 18), this is “a monument to cynicism and hypocrisy.” He is reminded of Amoris Laetitia which quotes John Paul II and Thomas Aquinas “to affirm exactly the opposite of their teaching.”
In a similar way, Traditionis Custodes says that “after the Council of Trent, St Pius V (+1572) abrogated all the rites that could not boast of proven antiquity, establishing a single Missale Romanum for the whole Latin Church."
This is another trick. Specula clarifies that only the Novus Ordo has “no proven antiquity” because it was invented out of the blue fifty years ago and never became a rite, rather a phenomenon of disintegration because, when presiding the Novus Ordo, every priest does whatever he wants.

I'm pretty sure Pope Narcissus is not reading any critique of his latest musings.
