Ok Pope Frankie —what do you want to see - an even larger contingent going over to the Bishop Lefebre group? —because they will. Most traditionalists, especially the younger ones, don’t think what they’re doing is either fashionable or whimsical. They’re serious. If it weren’t for groups like The Society of St. Peter (Vatican approved) more people would have gone Society of St. Pius X —Lefebre group. The question is —how much is a traditional latin catholic going to contort over being schismatic or beng forced to have the Novus Ordo as they’re only choice. The last 2 popes did a splendid job at making a place at the table for both kinds of people. Frankie, whatcha gonna do?
It’s as if this pope wants schism.
To defend the Pope:
What is the actual difference in the two masses, the TLM and the Novus Ordo? Isn’t Jesus as present in one as the other?
I understand that some prefer one over the other, and some priests are poor officiants. But are they not equal in their sacredness? And from the point of view of the presence of the Lord or the sacredness of the rite, the differences would be superficial.
