ARCHBISHOP ROCHE SAYS LATIN MASS IS NOT BEING ABOLISHED BUT “REGULATED”

Archbishop Arthur Roche

This week Arthur Roche, on behalf of Francis, has begun reining in the Latin Mass Taliban.

He says that the Latin Mass and its celebrations are to be tightly regulated.

Eventually it will be celebrated rarely and with specific permission each time.

And on the rare occasions it is used it will be restricted to the Latin translation of the Mass of Paul VI.

This move by Francis and Roche is vital because the Latin Mass has become a rallying point for all kinds of crazies and anti Vatican II cranks.

Benedict did great damage by changing the Vatican II missal and importing strange and unpronounceable terms into it.

I sincerely hope Francis and Arthur do away with Benedict’s innovations and let us back to the precepts Benedict rite.

I have never used the Benedict missal.

I am very much a Vatican II man.

Vatican II was a whole council of the church.

While it never formally claimed inflibility, such a Council has always been regarded as a source of sound and binding teaching.

THE TLM PROTAGONISTS

Most of the TLM protagonists are people who want to reject Vatican II for a wide number of reasons.

Many of them are also involved in rejecting the papacy of Francis, who whatever you think of him, was properly elected by all the Cardinals in conclave.

The Mass of Paul VI is the one that is promulgated by the current, validly elected pope.

Why are these so called “Super Catholics” rejecting the teachings and instructions of the current pope?

THE HOMOSEXUAL WING

Thete is a strong homosexual wing among the TLM crowd.

They want to celebrate the TLM by day and be in the gay saunas by night – or in each others beds.

But they are secret homosexuals.

Among the Liberal crowd -people like Richard Purcell, they are blatant about their homosexuality. They flaunt it.

To quote the Scriptures: “They are boasting about things they should be ashamed of”.

THE BASICS

It’s good to keep faith simple.

We don’t need to keep inventing new religious groups like the TLM groups.

If the TLM groups are not willing to accept Vatican II or the duly elected pope, then maybe need to head off and form their own church.

The vast majority of the world’s Catholics accept Vatican II, Francis and the Mass of Paul VI.

They can have their own 21 st century reformation.

Pat, you are very find of the word “taliban”. It is misused by you all the time. You, in another sense could be a “talibaner”, in that you are obstinate and adamant about what you believe in and want. That’s a reasonably good trait, surely, in those who fight their cause? As for Vatican 11, we have yet to fulfil its full vision and be truly renewed in spirit, the Spirit of Jesus. Somehow, many have given up on the challenge of renewal. We’re not clear exactly what we mean.

It’s a bit rich of you who had your own XXth Century reformation. I don’t see any loyalty to Fanny on this blog or indeed to Paul VI who has been accused on here of being homosexual.

The Latin Mass didn’t start as the norm, initially the Eucharist was celebrated in the vernacular and that is where it should have stayed IMO.
Anyway, I hope your Latin is better than your English, otherwise you are stumped.
I don’t think faith has ever been truly simple. It is as simple or complex as the individual’s intellect will allow. There is a great deal to be said for “Fides quaerens intellectum” or faith seeking understanding; avoiding that challenge/ opportunity is when a hash can be made of it and potentially rendering faith as little more than superstition.
MMM’s comment on those in “mountainous farming communities” and their wisdom nicely demonstrates that our wisdom and understanding, be it of faith or life’s experiences in general, does not necessarily come from academic learning, but is always the fruit of intelligent reflection which is not dependent on privileged scholarship.

Every schism that had ever arisen out of the Catholic Church, has been on that rebelled against the magisterium. Vatican II is no different to Lutheranism, or the Church of England. It took out the parts of Catholicism it didn’t like and set itself on a different direction from tradition, in the very same way all others did.
It is only Roman Catholicism in its traditional form that has a direct lineage to Christ himself. You cannot erase tradition, replace it with something synthetic and still claim it to be Catholic. It isn’t, and it never will be.

There seems to be some confusion in the post:
1. Traditionis custodes does not place any restrictions on the celebration of the Mass of Paul VI in Latin (Sacrosanctum Concilium expects at least some of the Mass to continue to be celebrated in Latin) although trying to find a Mass of Paul VI in Latin is harder than finding hen’s teeth (although it is very pleasing aesthetically and it would satisfy most of the instincts that attract traditionalists).
2. Roche’s approach may play into the hands of the SSPX who are outside of the Vatican’s control completely – they are already capitalising on the document.
3. Benedict XVI did not change the “Vatican II missal” all that much, unless the writer presumably means the 2011 translation. Yet the 2011 translation is much nearer to the actual Mass of Paul VI than the 1974 translation (which used “dynamic equivalence” as its standard, which is not even, formally, an approach to translation). The 1974 translation was much more idiomatic, but it was not as “faithful” a translation as 2011.
4. There’s been no widespread rejection of the 2011 translation in England (at least). You do hear, very occasionally, of priests who persist with the older translation (of whom Pat is one) but I would not want to return to the older translation.
I do not pretend to know what the best approach is to take towards the TLM. I think it is right to curb its future growth, but that does, alas, pander to the martyr complex of traditionalists.
