He has forbidden the Tridentine Mass in Argentina, which is an act of direct disobedience, specifically against the papal decree Summorum Pontificum, but embraces horrific "charismatic" and "Superfun Rockband"-type liturgical sacrilege...
...Tridentine Mass-goers and clergy, this guy will be on the warpath against us at some point.
...This guy's worldview revolves around giving people free stuff because it's nice, which as we have discussed is contrary to logic and reason, specifically in the subset of mathematics, and thus is contrary to Our Lord who is but FIRST the Logos, with the Divine Caritas (charity) proceeding out of the Logos. Bottom line, there will be zero positive assistance to the world from Francis with regards to the inevitable economic collapse.
Pope Ubama I.
From so great an authority as Ann Barnhart.............
She really seems to have gone around the bend.
Hey, Ann, I don’t much like the Novus Ordo either. But did you expect the new Pope to reverse everything since Vatican II on his first day in office?
This seems to be the trigger point to most of the people I see who hate him (other than libs). Why all the OCD over this one version of the Mass that almost paints him like the AntiChrist himself for not liking it?
I can’t read it.
The only person I know who regards her rants, which may be on the nose one time out of ten, is a despised, raging, bipolar bookshop owner, who is correct about once out of ten times.
Methinks Ann is disappointed they did not consider her.
He took immediate and decisive action on Cardinal Law today. Cloistered indeed.
I could do with an honest questioning of the Pope’s past actions but this makes Ann sound like the Westboros.
I am not a Catholic, but I was definitely not pleased to hear that this Pope was a South American Jesuit. That is, after all, the root of Liberation Theology (aka Christianized Marxism). I found it worrying the moment I heard his claim to fame was “social justice”. I’m sorry, but when the Catholic church starts talking “social justice” it often/usually means support for big government social welfare liberalism.
When Ratzinger was named Pope I was confident and happy with the news - and I know almost all political conservatives of all faiths felt the same way. This time, not so much. People are putting a brave face on and talking up the good things about this new leader, but I think on the economic issues Pope Francis is a big question mark so far. I absolutely admit that I could be totally wrong, but even the chance that the Catholic church could move further left on economic positions is just very unwelcome news.
If you wanted to raise as many flags as possible, among as many groups of outsider observers as possible, especially for some end time prophecy fans, that pretty much covers everything.
What a nutcase. Lies, distortions and general involuntary commitment material.
Cardinal Bergoglio was in compliance with Summorum Pontificum within 48 hours.
There are around 6-8 Tridentine Mass locations in Argentina including the one in Buenos Aires.
It is possible that restoring traditional liturgy isn’t his #1 interest, granted.
Looking forward to assisting at my Latin Mass on Sunday...
Unbelievably unscriptural PING! (as if WE can "help" Jesus at the cross. Hint: He did it ALL Himself, and He does not "need" our pitiful help)
I wonder if the Latin Mass schismatics are kicking themselves now because they didn’t take Benedict up on his eagerness to bring them back into the fold. A couple of months ago, the Pope was someone who wanted them back badly. This guy does not have that as a priority.
They should have come back when the welcome mat was out.
A you asked for it ping
Barnhardt is starting to make Alex Jones and Lyndon Larouche look SANE by comparison. X.x
Ann Barnhardt's criticism of Pope Francis for forbidding the use of the Tridentine Mass in Argentina has its reason. The 1962 Tridentine Mass is sometimes referred to as the "usus antiquior" (older use) or "forma antiquior" (older form), to differentiate it from the newer form of the Roman Rite in use since 1969 when Pope Paul VI initiated the newer revised Mass, as a result of the Second Vatican Council. For this reason, the Tridentine Mass became obsolete and the reason that, then, Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio of Buenos Aires wanted to stay with the new form.
Most people associate the Tridentine Mass with that form said in Latin. Pope Paul VI actually wrote the new form in Latin and said it was OK to celebrate the new form in Latin.
The new Mass form has had its criticism from the very start with the "the Ottaviani Intervention" in June of 1969. The argument said that the new form was in variance to the Council of Trent (1545-63). This criticism has been voiced by Traditionalist Catholics ever since. To understand the issues voiced by the Traditionalist Catholics and Ann Barnhardt against the Pope Paul VI form, one would need the expertise of a Catholic theologian. Any experts out there?
Interesting. Very interesting. Thanks to Ann Barnhardt, E. Pluribus Unum and every poster.
And he is spiteful. He shuts down the White House to the people because he wants to manipulate the situation. But he could pay for those visits easily by cutting a $27 million program to teach Moroccans how to make pottery, a program that is in itself rather arrogant and tinged with racism. WE are going to teach Moroccans how to make a tagine? They've been making pottery for millennia. It's like Morocco spending $27 million to teach Canadians how to play Hockey. But His Royal Hawaiian Highness would not even consider cutting the silly pottery subsidy. No, he has to "stick it to" the ungrateful population.
....lemme guess....Rick Warren.
Sheesh Ann, let’s give him a chance. I like Ann’s passion for most things but this is over the top.
