FRANCIS IS SORTING OUT THE LACE BRIGADE AT LAST.

FRANCIS’ LETTER IN ENGLISH

APOSTOLIC LETTER
ISSUED “MOTU PROPRIO”
BY THE SUPREME PONTIFF

FRANCIS

“TRADITIONIS CUSTODES”

ON THE USE OF THE ROMAN LITURGY PRIOR TO THE REFORM OF 1970

Guardians of the tradition, the bishops in communion with the Bishop of Rome constitute the visible principle and foundation of the unity of their particular Churches.[1] Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, through the proclamation of the Gospel and by means of the celebration of the Eucharist, they govern the particular Churches entrusted to them.[2]

In order to promote the concord and unity of the Church, with paternal solicitude towards those who in any region adhere to liturgical forms antecedent to the reform willed by the Vatican Council II, my Venerable Predecessors, Saint John Paul II and Benedict XVI, granted and regulated the faculty to use the Roman Missal edited by John XXIII in 1962.[3] In this way they intended “to facilitate the ecclesial communion of those Catholics who feel attached to some earlier liturgical forms” and not to others.[4]

In line with the initiative of my Venerable Predecessor Benedict XVI to invite the bishops to assess the application of the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum three years after its publication, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith carried out a detailed consultation of the bishops in 2020. The results have been carefully considered in the light of experience that has matured during these years.

At this time, having considered the wishes expressed by the episcopate and having heard the opinion of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, I now desire, with this Apostolic Letter, to press on ever more in the constant search for ecclesial communion. Therefore, I have considered it appropriate to establish the following:

Art. 1. The liturgical books promulgated by Saint Paul VI and Saint John Paul II, in conformity with the decrees of Vatican Council II, are the unique expression of the lex orandi of the Roman Rite.

Art. 2. It belongs to the diocesan bishop, as moderator, promoter, and guardian of the whole liturgical life of the particular Church entrusted to him,[5] to regulate the liturgical celebrations of his diocese.[6] Therefore, it is his exclusive competence to authorize the use of the 1962 Roman Missal in his diocese, according to the guidelines of the Apostolic See.

Art. 3. The bishop of the diocese in which until now there exist one or more groups that celebrate according to the Missal antecedent to the reform of 1970:

§ 1. is to determine that these groups do not deny the validity and the legitimacy of the liturgical reform, dictated by Vatican Council II and the Magisterium of the Supreme Pontiffs;

§ 2. is to designate one or more locations where the faithful adherents of these groups may gather for the eucharistic celebration (not however in the parochial churches and without the erection of new personal parishes);

§ 3. to establish at the designated locations the days on which eucharistic celebrations are permitted using the Roman Missal promulgated by Saint John XXIII in 1962.[7] In these celebrations the readings are proclaimed in the vernacular language, using translations of the Sacred Scripture approved for liturgical use by the respective Episcopal Conferences;

§ 4. to appoint a priest who, as delegate of the bishop, is entrusted with these celebrations and with the pastoral care of these groups of the faithful. This priest should be suited for this responsibility, skilled in the use of the Missale Romanum antecedent to the reform of 1970, possess a knowledge of the Latin language sufficient for a thorough comprehension of the rubrics and liturgical texts, and be animated by a lively pastoral charity and by a sense of ecclesial communion. This priest should have at heart not only the correct celebration of the liturgy, but also the pastoral and spiritual care of the faithful;

§ 5. to proceed suitably to verify that the parishes canonically erected for the benefit of these faithful are effective for their spiritual growth, and to determine whether or not to retain them;

§ 6. to take care not to authorize the establishment of new groups.

Art. 4. Priests ordained after the publication of the present Motu Proprio, who wish to celebrate using the Missale Romanum of 1962, should submit a formal request to the diocesan Bishop who shall consult the Apostolic See before granting this authorization.

Art. 5. Priests who already celebrate according to the Missale Romanum of 1962 should request from the diocesan Bishop the authorization to continue to enjoy this faculty.

Art. 6. Institutes of consecrated life and Societies of apostolic life, erected by the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, fall under the competence of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies for Apostolic Life.

Art. 7. The Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments and the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life, for matters of their particular competence, exercise the authority of the Holy See with respect to the observance of these provisions.

Art. 8. Previous norms, instructions, permissions, and customs that do not conform to the provisions of the present Motu Proprio are abrogated.

Everything that I have declared in this Apostolic Letter in the form of Motu Proprio, I order to be observed in all its parts, anything else to the contrary notwithstanding, even if worthy of particular mention, and I establish that it be promulgated by way of publication in “L’Osservatore Romano”, entering immediately in force and, subsequently, that it be published in the official Commentary of the Holy See, Acta Apostolicae Sedis.

Given at Rome, at Saint John Lateran, on 16 July 2021, the liturgical Memorial of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, in the ninth year of Our Pontificate.

PAT SAYS:

This is a slap in the kisser for Old Mother Burke 😁

The Latin Brigade have been out of order for too long.

Its not just about the Latin Mass but its about the fact that he Latin Brigade reject the Second Vatican Council and the authority of post Vat 11 popes.

if the Latinos dont accept Vat 11 they should clear off and found their own church.

Anyway, Francis has drawn a line in the sand and cracked the whip.

The outcome will be interesting.

BY THE WAY……

I have been perfectly faithful to the Paul V1 Mass for 45 years 😁

Poor auld mother Burke must have her frilly lace knickers in a twist…but seriously why is the Duchess of Birmingham allowing the oratory to continue when it’s PROHIBITED in parochial churches?

Like

But is she ? Or are the Cong Orats just saying she did ? You can never believe the Oratorians. They are more Jesuitical than the Jesuits and will shape the truth according to their own truth, which of course they believe is the truth. Anyhow, even if they do continue, it is most certainly a minority fringe interest and just adds a little entertaining layer of oddity and strangeness to the landscape of the Church. It’s when they start to get all moralistic and judgemental about other people and their lives that they are most dangerous and undermining, and should be called out and slapped down for that. The odd bit of lace and latin….well, each to their own, dears !

Like

You can go and learn latin with the LMS if you are so inclined ! (https://lms.org.uk/civicrm/event/info?id=183&reset=1) I suggest that some of those priests already celebrating the EF, and seminarians planning on doing so (or maybe not now after the MP of Francis !) go and learn a bit of latin. It is so obvious that the majority of them haven’t a clue about the language and just learn it by rote in order to say the EF. Well, not surprising I guess, because the majority of them don’t exactly come from or were educated in the background and families that went to schools that teach latin. They are mostly lower middle class comprehensive boys who suddenly get airs and graces when they go to seminary and think the lace and latin raises them up somewhat ! I mean, they have to buy their own antique furniture for their presbyteries, rather than having it inherited and handed down through the generations. Some of them aspire to John Lewis chic in the belief that is class. I ask you !

For someone who has “no time for the RCC [sic.],” you seem to be spending way too much time commenting on it. At least ‘old mother Burke’ is in communion with the Church and isn’t squatting in the Church’s property like you are.

Another confused post by Pat. You claim that the Latin Brigade all reject Vat II and post Vat II Popes – not true. You tell them to go off and found their own church – just like you did. Yet you claim to have been faithful to the Paul VI Mass for 45 years and yet you argue that you’re not part of the RCC – such a pick and mix ecclesiology.

posses a knowledge of the Latin language sufficient for a thorough comprehension of the rubrics and liturgical texts – so that rules out most of the lace brigade

I think most dioceses will have difficulty finding even one priest in this position to do the liaising.

Like

As I said yesterday a genuine spiritual organisation would welcome people celebrating mass in the way which means the most to the worshippers in a congregation. This is about control, not spirituality.

Like

My local Oxford Oratory – where I do not worship – has already announced that the Archbishop of Birmingham has told them they have permission to carry on celebrating the EF (http://www.oxfordoratory.org.uk/blog/post/9057-9057/). Whether this is the case or not, I do not know. The Oratorians do tend to make up their own truth, so sure are they that they, and nobody else, holds the truth. It does seem a bit strange that + Longley would so readily allow them to continue celebrating the EF because the the Oxford Oratory is a parish, St Aloysius Gonzaga. The Pope’s Motu Proprio specifically says the EF should not be celebrated in a parochial setting (Art 3 Para 2). I would have thought + Longley would have had enough of the Cong Orats, especially after the Birmingham crowd during lockdown were encouraging their people to pray earnestly that the Archbishop change his mind about not allowing communion on the tongue. I believe the Birmingham Oratorians carried on flouting his directive. I believe he had to tell them to wind their necks in. The Oratorians and so many of these traditionalist groups exist in a parallel universe separate mostly from the mainstream Church. I think Francis realises this and is determined to reel them back in, or to cut them loose. I suspect the latter will be the case going forward.

Like

I suspect the real reason several bishops have done that is to avoid having to deal with this over the weekend. Francis managed a real annoyance for them by releasing his motu for immediate effect on a Friday. Their response tomorrow will depend on how vicious these groups have been over the weekend.

Like

This Decree came out on Friday and although it was known it was coming there is no timescale however Rome expects it to be implemented as quickly as possible.
Some of the Oratorian people were straight in with emails and telephones calls alongside diocesan Clergy to see what happens now.
It was a Friday afternoon so what was a Bishop going to do cancel all Latin Masses this weekend certainly not as the publicity would be greater.
So ALL Bishops said carry on just now there were NO long term commitments.
The Decree is plain and will need to be implemented.
Do you honestly believe Archbishop Longley or any Bishop is going to ignore Pope Francis when career changes maybe around the corner in Westminster, Cardiff, Glasgow of course they are not.
The decree states a Bishop can provide a place for the LMB but NOT in diocesan property so all sorts comes into play will they get a lease and how about insurance.
Too quick for real decisions to be made.

However, a dogma is doctrine of specific importance, which the other poster either did not know, or did not express.

I suspect that he did not know. 😀

There will be a lot of seminarians leaving rcc cos of new TLM rule. Cos no new seminarian won’t be allowed to say TLM now and in future.

Hence less vocations in rcc now and in future. Rcc will get smaller and smaller.

It has been on the cards for a long time and rumours were swirling in the last couple of months re this.

It was strange that it all came out straight after frankie the gaslighter major surgery. It looks like roach’s fingerprints all over it cos he was never a traddie was he?

I noticed ex friend of mine deaf gay man who is tad obsessive with TLM all things and sundry. He’s into it huge time. Is that a new fad for gay men or what?

I found those with extremist end of tradition disturbing such as SSpx cos their need for total secrecy which doesn’t bode well for child safeguarding. Church militant have been digging into this. Total secrecy = less info given out in respect of child safety. I don’t get it when any parents bring their child to SSpx which is a red flag for me. It’s no go area as far as I’m concerned.

The closet to SSpx that I came across was Opus dei (NO mass) in Dublin. Some of abused guys recognised it quickly when a priest of opus dei in Dublin (Stephen Green base of opus dei) latched onto us years ago.

Latin Mass doesn’t suit deaf people cos priest is turned inward towards the east. No lip reading to follow what’s he’s saying etc. No point though except for some deaf gay men.

No time for longer mass such as TLM cos my preference is any mass with no sermon. So that I could get out quick within 30 mins. Latin Mass tends to be an hour and more in comparison to NO mass. But there was some exceptions that no mass went far longer as I was stomping my feet or itching to get out fast as I could. NYC church off wall street went over an hour of sermon which l walked out half way during priest sermon. It was that bad. Never went back to that church again.

Thats why TLM with their time longer duration of mass which I would skip it or give it a miss in the past.

This went out to consultation to All Bishops all over the World last year and many dioceses do not have the LMB in their dioceses there maybe the SSPX but they are outside the Church.
Archbishop Roche has been working on this third version although Cardinal Sarah was not happy so he went quick.
It was expected by the end of the month but it came on Friday.
As for Pope Francis and his health does not matter how long he has to live as his successor will be of the same mould and will continue with the decree.
We will know how bad Pope Francis health is in the next few months and how many new Cardinals. and one will be Archbishop Roche.

Apologies for repetition but I would again like to draw attention to the important role an Archbishop from the Church in England And Wales has played in ‘Motu proprio’. This is Archbishop Arthur Roche, who will soon be made a Cardinal. We should be rightly proud and thankful for his wonderful work. It is rare for the high intellect and other qualities of a priest from England Wales to be played-out so fully in Vatican affairs. All Hail Ye.

Like

I find it contradictory when we each start rejecting rites in preference for what we each prefer.
When I celebrate Mass in the roman rite it does not lessen what the lace brigade do in other locations. Their celebration of mass doesn’t lessen mine either.
I always think The Holy Spirit provides no matter the rite. I believe the Spirit must because I am flawed, a sinner, unworthy of the office bestowed upon me. If we really think about it all Priests fall into that category.
With the Spirit adding the necessary, the many rites means many routes to worship and many ways to connect in prayer. Fulfilled in prayer surely it facilitates much inspiration towards good deed – as opposed to arguments over rites??

I was surprised that my Trentish friends were thrilled by the recent moth proprio in that it frees them from adherence to the Bugnini 1962 books. They told me to expect a rise in the use of pre1950 missals and pre1911 breviaries.
The Orthodox have set up a Western Rite which uses either BCP inspired or Roman/Sarum texts. Personally I think that’s in retaliation for Uniatism. Boys will be boys.
BTW, Bishop Patrick, the Montini books may be used in Latin. Actually they provide a considerably greater amount of Latinity than the older books. Indeed the boneheads in the Vatican should have been promoting these Latin books. Fifty years after their implementation and they still are overshadowed by the Trentish books! They should be ashamed.

Like

You could well be right at 3:26 pm. Endless fiddling around with the Liturgy leads to the setting up of worlds within worlds with everybody doing their own thing. This is not conducive to unity or charity. Archbishop Lefebvre insisted on the 1962 Missal. He was defied by a group of nine American priests, who set up the SSPV. Not surprisingly a few years later that split into two groups who have nothing to do with each other. In UK and elsewhere there is the absurd Ordinariate, established supposedly to preserve a fictive Anglican heritage, notwithstanding that many of their clergy chose to celebrate the Tridentine Mass. Quite how that is supposed to be faithful to Cranmer is anyone’s guess.
I am sympathetic to the Old Rite, but accepted Paul VI’s Mass. What I cannot stand is the ghastly stilted pompous replacement devised by the genius of Arthur Roche.
Now I would advise doing what you like: everybody else does.

Diocesan Administrator only keeps the dioceses moving and can appoint people temporary until the new Archbishop arrives so remember Monsignor Hugh was VG / PP and he may go back to being a PP it will be up to both of them to discuss it. (JK likes his own team)

“The Lady In Red”
I’ve never seen you looking so lovely as you did tonight,
I’ve never seen you shine so bright,
I’ve never seen so many men ask you if you wanted to dance,
They’re looking for a little romance, given half a chance,
And I have never seen that dress you’re wearing,
Or the highlights in your hair that catch your eyes,
I have been blind;
The lady in red is dancing with me, cheek to cheek,
There’s nobody here, it’s just you and me,
It’s where I want to be,
But I hardly know this beauty by my side,
I’ll never forget the way you look tonight;
I’ve never seen you looking so gorgeous as you did tonight,
I’ve never seen you shine so bright, you were amazing,
I’ve never seen so many people want to be there by your side,
And when you turned to me and smiled, it took my breath away,
And I have never had such a feeling,
Such a feeling of complete and utter love, as I do tonight;
The lady in red is dancing with me, cheek to cheek,
There’s nobody here, it’s just you and me,
It’s where I want to be,
But I hardly know this beauty by my side,
I’ll never forget the way you look tonight;
I never will forget the way you look tonight…
The lady in red, the lady in red,
The lady in red, my lady in red,
I love you…

On the topic of yesterday, I’ve only an off topic comment to make. The Pope had great access to healthcare recently. He is a fortunate person in an unfair and inequitable society.
Men and women all over the world deny themselves healthcare so that their children can be cared for, should their children get sick. Incredible love but also quite sad that people are put in that position in this day and age.
