It's so over the top from a spiritual perspective that it brings to mind John 15:18 - If the world hate you, know ye, that it hath hated me before you.
The persecution of the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculata is another indication that Tradition is under heavy spiritual assault. Their devotion to the Blessed Mother combined with their "drift" toward Tradition made them a prime target of the devil.
On the other hand, I recently heard a traditionalist bishop say that the pope told him that the Tridentine Mass is one of the treasures of the Church. And hasn't he dedicated his papacy to Our Lady of Fatima? Perhaps he'll end up being the pope who finally consecrates Russia to the Immaculate Heart of Mary.
I believe in miracles. And that would be a miracle.
