Francis' Traditionis Custodes Is "Nothing Less Than Treason" (Video)

Traditionis Custodes is widely ignored or not taken seriously, James Bogle noticed in front of Gloria.tv during the Roman Forum in Gardone, Italy (video below).

An English lawyer and former president of Una Voce International, Bogle insists that it is “very unwise” for a lawmaker to pass laws that are disregarded.

He thinks that it is not within the powers of a pope to abolish the Roman Mass because the whole purpose of the papacy is to preserve tradition. On the contrary, abolishing the tradition handed down by Christ to the Apostles and subsequent generations is a negation of the papal role and undermines the Church and the papal office, "This is nothing less than a form of treason."

Bogle refers to Benedict XVI's Summorum Pontificum which states that the Roman Rite has never been abolished - while Francis is trying to do just that. He adds that any legislative body, let alone a magisterium, that contradicts itself within a decade is making a fool of itself: "Francis is making a fool of himself."

In England, few bishops have taken serious action against the Roman Mass except Clifton Diocese. Bishops interpreted TC in such a way that they made very little changes. Liturgy Prefect Arthur Roche is playing legalistic games and, as a consequence, the bishops are doing the same, Bogle observes.

His personal feeling is that Roche and Francis have tried to counteract “the enormous growth” of the Roman Rite particularly among the young, but TC will have the opposite effect. More people are now interested in what Francis is trying to ban. They discover the Mass, are pleasantly surprised and continue to attend it.

Bogle hopes the Vatican will take note of this Gloria.tv interview, calling Bergoglio and Roche "ironically the best recruiters every time they try to suppress the Mass".

Bergolio ain't through, fellas. TLM is the litmus test for neo-catholic (a la VII) TlM = non acceptance the "spirit of VII"
Cat Smith
What's ironic is that he doesn't consider that Francis is not the pope. That is why his actions don't make sense, are illegitimate, and against tradition. You can't fulfill a role that you don't possess!

No michael, because there can't be more than 1 pope at a time in Catholic Church... And true pope is one chronologically elected first...
Cat Smith
The burden of proof is on the "Francis is definitely pope" crowd. Do some research and you will clearly see that BXVI never resigned and is still the pope.
Remember...follow Bergoglio, become Bergoglio.

The Pope is Infallible. The Church is Indefectible. If the acting Pope is a heretic and encouraging immorality, and the Church is compromised and moving souls away from God, then the "Pope" is a fraud and the Church is not the Catholic Church.
James Bogle
Spinmeister - don't be ridiculous. The Pope does not speak infallibly 24/7 as if he were God. He must teach formally, solemnly and in accordance with Pastor Aeturnus and Lumen Gentium 25. The rest of the time he teaches no more infallibly than you and I do. Stop pretending that the Pope is God and not a mere man. And who gave YOU juridical authority to decide who is, and who is not, Pope?

He is right. In my Archdiocese, nothing has been done to supress the Tridentine LAtin Mass, even though there are only 3 locations in such a large Archdiocese. The disbanding of the Trinitarian Sisters of MAry, is a disgrace and Francis and his VAtican should be condemned rightly.

Nothing has been done in my diocese either, and the bishop has been quite friendly, establishing the FSSP in one of the most beautiful, and quite large churches in the diocese. I am very thankful for this, and I don’t believe that he would ever proactively attack the TLM. The problem is, he is going to reach his 75th birthday in the next year or two, and one can never expect his successor to be …More

I am very thankful for this, and I don’t believe that he would ever proactively attack the TLM. The problem is, he is going to reach his 75th birthday in the next year or two, and one can never expect his successor to be so kind. Some other less friendly bishops nearing retirement have likely done nothing because they would rather leave the problem to their successor. Summorum Pontificum was still expanding and bearing fruit after 14 years. Traditionis custodes will certainly wreak havoc for years to come. That said, I agree that it will prove to be a great recruiting tool for the TLM, and, conversely, it will continue to depress diocesan vocations.

Bishop Tobin is your bishop?
