Oh! He noticed!. How good of him. It took him what? Only about 40 years before he noticed Vatican Council II hurt the Latin Mass?

Third-world cooks can make a succulent meal out the toughest dog. Seriously, it's all done with low-heat "slow cooking". Same reason Crock-Pots work magic on tough cuts of meat.

Little wonder. "Professional journalism" is overwhelmingly left-wing and pro-homosexual. They want homosexual clergy rotting The Church from within. If "professional journalism" caught Barron Trump on Grinder or Ivanka Trump on Tinder, this would be heralded as the new era of investigative journalism.

Vanity and Power? Francis Insists On Denying Multiplication of Loaves

At the risk of speaking on The Pope's behalf,
1.) You don't want to know.
2.) See 1.)
3.) Probably as "an historical" figure.
4.) See 2.) and 1.)
5.) Obviously not, given his ecumenical focus on our "Abrahamic Brothers"
6.) See 4.) 2.) and 1.)

“Liturgy is not a toy of popes; it is the heritage of the Church” — Very strong statement on Tradit…

"Liturgy is not a toy of popes" I wonder if this Bishop knows of a little get-together called Vatican Council II from a few years back.

Oh boy, here we go The Heavy Bold Blocks are already showing up. If ever there was a GTV Butt-Hurt Alert it's this. INB4 "I didn't read your reply". That comes next. :P

What's the problem? People who are not in full communion with The Church shouldn't pretend they that are. Their fans shouldn't try to mislead others into believing the SSPX is nor should they misrepresent the SSPX as loyal Catholics who are lawfully submissive to The Supreme Pontiff. --because the SSPX is none of those things.

"the SSPX cannot formally agree in conscience to accepting errors and doctrinally problematic Documents of the Council"

Their founder also could not formally agree in conscience to accepting Canon Law and obeying it. That's where "the schism" happened as John Paul II described it (verbatim).

As usual, you make much of the SSPX's excuses and self-serving justifications for their disobedience yet you're unable to explain how the FSSP is able to remain every bit as dedicated to Catholic traditionalism and pre-Vatican Council II theology and still remain in full communion with the Catholic Church. Obviously it can be done because the FSSP has been doing it for over 35 years now. The SSPX just doesn't want to. That's schismatics behaving like schismatics.

That's fine for them, the Orthodox do the same. But the Orthodox don't pretend they're still Catholics, unlike the SSPX.

"This article explains that..".

Because linking an URL isn't anywhere as fun as text-bombing the comments section with Loads O' Bold, and even the extra-inflamed red text.

"This happened while Pope Francis was Pope, and certainly with his permission,"

Silence does not imply consent. If a book club keep sending you "evaluation copies" when you didn't ask for them, you're not obligated to pay for them.

Since the last official ruling on the Canonical Status of the SSPX was made by Benedict XVI -as pope- i.e. they have none whatsoever, the verdict of a Pope surpasses that of a Bishop. Francis may have contradicted Benedict XVI on Summorum Pontificum, but he hasn't contradicted him on the Canonical Status of the SSPX.

"CONCLUSION: No one in the Hierarchy even agrees on the status of SSPX, so no lay person is qualified to make that declaration."

Wrong on both points.
1.) The "hierarchy" ends at the Pope.
The previous pope was explicit. The SSPX has no Canonical Status. The current Pope has not modified The Church's official stance regarding the SSPX's Canonical Stauts .

2.) A lay-person is qualified to repeat the same declaration, as yet unchanged, when it's made by the Pope himself. He's the endpoint of the temporal hiearchy. He has the final word and he has spoken.

That's something people with a now-institutionalized culture of schism simply refuse to accept.
