    >There have been some rumblings amongst traditionalist Catholics that Pope Francis is going to turn out to be a liturgical liberal. Apparently a few extremists are worried that Pope Benedict’s encouragement of the Latin Mass and his bringing back some of the older styles of clerical dress and papal customs are going to be thrown out in favor of happy clappy masses, clowns, balloons and big puppets.Everyone should stop and take a deep breath and get a sense of priorities. I am myself, on the more traditionalist side of the liturgy wars. I dislike anodyne, sentimental church music, a game...

    In response to my own frustration, I prepared a statement for my grown children who were raised in the post-Vatican II church, having been born in the mid-1960's. After floundering in the Novus Ordo churches for many years, my husband and I discovered, by the grace of God, the Catholic Faith was alive and well in a neighborhood SSPX Chapel. By this time, our adult children were suffering from poor catechetics, diluted doctrines, pabulum sermons and undemanding Catholicism. Totally ignorant of the pre-Vatican II church, our return to "Tradition" was confusing and bewildering for them. Where do you begin to...

    Good news from Rome: the Vatican has further underlined the freedom of priests to celebrate Mass in the Extraordinary Form whenever they choose. Two important points have been clarified by Ecclesia Dei, which will make it more difficult for the English, Welsh and above all Scottish bishops to stall the implementation of Summorum Pontificum: 1. A priest does NOT have to be approached by a “stable group” of the faithful in order to schedule a PUBLIC celebration of the Extraordinary Form – he may choose to do so, for example, in order to introduce his parishioners to this ancient form...

  • John Paul II and Benedict XVI – What Next for the Traditional Mass?

    Latin Mass Society of England and Wales ^ | August 2005 | Monsignor Ignacio Barreiro
    John Paul II and Benedict XVI – What Next for the Traditional Mass? In an important article, Monsignor Ignacio Barreiro traces the gradual if imperfect lifting of restrictions on the Traditional Rite by John Paul II and discusses the late Holy Father’s growing sense of urgency that the Holy Sacrifice was being devalued by liberal Catholicism. He then discusses in detail a strategy for the full liberation of the Traditional Mass and its re-incorporation in the heart of the Church. But will Benedict XVI act? Some months after the end of the papacy of John Paul II and at the...
