WHY IS DERMOT FARRELL STAYING SO SILENT ON SHOW FUNERALS?

Activites taking place at recent Dublin Show Funerals have stunned many in Ireland and indeed further afield.

And yet there has been NO RESPONSE and NO GUIDANCE from the man who is 100% responsible for this response and guidance – Dermot Farrell, the bishop involved?

Not only has he left the public in the dark – he has also failed to support and guide his priests who may be faced with another such occasion at any time.

And these funerals pose a real danger to priests and Mass goers.

Any day a priest could be seriously injured or shot dead at one of these Show Funerals.

Just look at the footage below from the undertaker’s website.

https://fb.watch/6_fKFzwWwV/

https://fb.watch/6_fSfM0taM/

https://fb.watch/6_g18NQStF/

Dermot needs to issuse URGENT INTERIM INSTRUCTIONS TO HIS CLERGY.

Those instructions need to state:

1. That only a dignified picture of the deceased be displayed in the church and a dignified symbol of the the persons life be placed on the coffin.

2. That the Offertory Procession consist of the bread and wine to be used at the Eucharist.

3. That floweral displays do not contain symbols supporting criminal activity or anything contrary to the Church’s beliefs and teachings.

4. That the eulogy, when Mass is over, is delivered by a family member or close family friend, and does not glorify or justify and kind of wrong doing by the deceased.

5. That divisive or offensive activities do not take place on church property before of after the funeral.

6. If any of these guidelines are broken, the celebrating priest should immediately leave the altar and sanctuary and the undertakers remove the body for burial or cremation.

You will find that generally speaking, these young criminals and their drug and crime bosses do not attend church.

They cannot be allowed to hijack church and priests to glorify the evil they do.

Mind you, some of these people would be quite capable of shooting and killing priests and are probably only held back by community opinion.

DERMOT FARRELL:

Dermot Farrell is only interested in sorting out the finances of Dublin.

He has only become a bishop because he covered for the RCC when his cousin Ledwith was sexually assaulting seminarians.

Dermot pulled the wool over for the bishops.

Ossory and Dublin are his rewards.

We should expect very little of him.

DUBLIN PRIEST PRESIDES OVER FUNERAL GLORIFYING CRIME AND CRIMINALS.

HUGH KAVANAGH

A week ago a Dublin parish priest from Tallaght presided over the funerals of three young criminal thugs who were killed as the Garda chased their getaway car.

Funeral Mass

During the Mass of Dean Maguire people shouted:

DEAN – YOU FUCKING LEGEND”.

The banner below was on the altar:

The banner, glorifying the crimes of burglary and armed robbery read:

“YOU KNOW THE SCORE

GET ON THE FLOOR

DON’T BE FUNNY,

SHOW ME THE MONEY’

The offerty procession of the funeral contained the tools of criminality and burglary – a screw driver, a stanley knife etc.

The funeral flowers also glorified crime.

The night before the funeral the hearse was driven through Dublin city in a convoy of criminar cars and jeeps which drove through red lights.

The DUBLIN CRIMINAL FRATERNITY got dozens of young men, wearing Rolex watches and driving four wheel beach cars to drive around areas glorifying the dead thugs.

Here is an interview on the RTE liveline programme presented by Joe Duffy:

https://www.rte.ie/radio/radio1/clips/21985747/

PAT SAYS:

This priest, Hugh Kavanagh, who does not seem to be the brightest button on the shirt, seems to have a history of mingling with parishioners in rough areas and not challenging misbehaviour. Of course irrational people love that.

Two years ago, the then Archbishop of Dublin, Diarmuid Martin said very clearly the CRIMINAL SHOW FUNERALS should not be allowed in churches.

Those instructions were massively ignored on this occasion.

WAS FR KAVANAGH POWERLESS?

My impression is that Kavanagh is weak and a people pleaser!

He should have intervened, had the banner and flowers removed from the church and banned the glorification of criminality in the offertory procession.

And if he met resistance he should have walked off the altar.

If a gun was then literally put to his head, he could have continued and told afterwards that he celebrated at gunpoint.

But Kavanagh said nothing and did nothing.

OTHER PRIESTS:

FATHER DONAL ROCHE told the Mail and Irish Times:

Donal Roche

Father Donal Roche, who did not conduct the service but was at the funeral to help with Covid-19 regulations, told RTÉ Liveline: ‘It was the most disturbing liturgy I have ever been at. There was a sense of restlessness, and the priest officiating was up against it.’

He told The Irish Times he was unaware of the offerings and had not read the banner but said they were ‘terrible’, while describing the eulogies as ‘very strange’.    

Father Roche added that there was no mention of the truck driver who was hospitalised with injuries to his legs after the three men collided with the lorry. 

Father Roche later said that he thought he was going to be assaulted at the funeral.

THE FUTURE

Dermot Farrell should ban all future show funerals.

He should remove Fr Kavanagh from his current parish and reassign him as a sign that a priest’s inaction is not acceptable.

The Garda need to be given wider powers to tackle the growing criminal problem in Dublin.

They should be allowed to shoot armed criminals without facing any discipline.

The future of Dublin and Ireland is threatened.

The enemies are the criminals and drug dealers.

I have no sympathy for the three killed – apart from the grief of their families.

In fact Ireland is safer without them.

LETS HAVE A MONKS DAY TODAY

CONTRIBUTION BY ENGLISH MONK:

“Much comment in England about the long overdue and courageous move made by Bishop Declan Lang of Clifton in clipping the wings of his two errant priests Fathers Bede Rowe and Alexander Redman

Rowe pictured beside the bishop in biretta and cope) – no wonder the bishop is not smiling!}.

Long a thorn this good man’s side, they have bullied him for years since arriving in the sleepy backwater diocese after having left Ealing Abbey together some 20 years ago.

Father Alexander Redman

By all accounts the two monks were inseparable and the source of much division in the community and well as comment.

Abbot Charleworth – centre

Since then the ultra-traditionalists have ruined every parish they have been given including ripping out forward facing altars and restoring altar rails.

In desperation the gentle bishop gave in to their incessant demands to be allowed to set up their own community, giving them the bizarre parish of Glastonbury; a dead-end place full of hippies and witches, though he refused their petition to allow them to each be Abbot in turn.

They had hoped to attract young men as novices, but alas not one has come.

It remains to be seen what their next move will be, but shorn of the extraordinary form that they so worship, its rumoured that they are already exploring throwing in their lot with the Lefebvrite’s who have a shrine in nearby Bristol.

Or maybe they will join the community of Buckfast, led by the ultra-traditionalist Dom Richard Charlesworth?

Now there’s a tale to be told! He has just been re-elected abbot for the fourth time in twenty years, after living for the last several years in a luxury penthouse apartment in a West Country city with a handsome Turk.

The young man has followed his benefactor to the monastery and briefly flirting with the Portsmouth diocese.

What is it about West Country monasteries? Must be the cider, or the tonic wine”!

SILVERSTREAM TRYING TO RECOUP ITS MISSING 3 MILLION BY SELLING E 12 MUGS.

Why not introduce some more mugs to help?

SATANIC / BLASPHEMOUS ASPECT TO MONSIGNOR BURRILL’S VAGAS BATH HOUSE.

Burrill

It has emerged that the gay bath house in Vagas where Burrill, the secretary general of the US Catholic bishop’s conference, has a Satanic and blasphemous aspect.

One of the events hosted by the club is a mockery of the Eucharist and prayer.

Its called CUM UNION and instead of the host and communion gay men share soerm with each other through performing oral sex.

And instead of people getting on their knees to pray they are encouraged to:

GET ON YOUR KNEES AND PLAY !

IMAGES FROM BATH HOUSE FACEBOOK

IRELAND

Its part of a trend among extreme priest’s gay sex groups to have sex in the context of the Satanic and blasphemous.

Fr Lomasney who had connections with a gay sex Satanic ring in Ireland – a ring I am currently investigating.

This Irish ring consists of some ex clergy, serving clergy, members of the Garda and others.

Some years ago a large file on this group was submitted to the Garda and was shelved.

After its submission an alleged member of the group committed suicide at the Satanic worship site.

If you think you’ve seen the worst of Church filth let me assure you:

THE WORST HAS YET TO COME !!!

STATEMENT ON BEHALF OF BISHOP PETER A. LIBASCI


Bishop Peter Libasci categorically denies the allegation set forth in a recently filed lawsuit in New York. The allegation that, almost 40 years ago, Bishop Libasci assaulted an individual while serving as a parish priest in Deer Park, New York is not true. Bishop Libasci has dedicated over 43 years to serving others as a Roman Catholic priest, during which time he has earned an impeccable reputation for treating all individuals with dignity and respect. While Bishop Libasci has great compassion for victims of sexual abuse, he will be forced to vigorously defend against these false allegations in court.

SHOULD MONSIGNOR BURRILL HAVE BEEN OUTED AS GRINDR USER?

The darling of the clerical gay club, James Martin SJ,  has said that Mons Burrill’s privacy should not have been invaded by those who outed him as a very regular Grindr user.

I TOTALLY DISAGREE!

Burrill is the most senior and visible non-bishop RC cleric in the USA.

In his work and actions he represents the RCC in the USA and also represents RC teaching, doctrine and discipline.

He made a public vow of celibacy at his ordination and his work and mode of dress says: “I am an authentic representative of all things RC – including the current USCCB’s thoughts on President Biden as a practising RC being pro choice”.

In effect, the thought is that Biden is a public sinner for his stance on abortion and WE are considering banning this immoral man from receiving Holy Communion.

The fact that Burrill & Co are judging Biden like this begs the question of whether those calling him immoral are immoral hypocrites themselves and therefore not in a position to condemn Biden or anyone else.

We do not know who really was behind the digging into Burrill’s life and activities. Their motives may not have been pure. We simply dont know.

But we do know that they found him on Grindr seeking sex with men and tracked him to several places including a gay bathhouse.

Cubicles

You cannot be both a promoter and defender of RCC condemnation of homosexuality and at the same time be meeting men for sex all over the country and in orgiastic gay bathhouses!

Its a contradiction!

Its hypocrisy!

Burrill and others like him in the USA, Ireland and everywhere else, have to make their minds up.

You are either an authentic priest struggling to be faithful to your vows.

Or you leave the priesthood, with all its perks, and become a homosexual private citizen, who does not seek to be a high ground moralist, and enjoy all the gay sex you can, whenever you can and for as long as you want.

You cannot be the grey Father Hyde and the pink Mr Jekyll.

ANOTHER US PROBLEM

The bishop of the Diocese of Manchester has been named in a civil lawsuit that alleges sexual abuse of a minor in the 1980s in Deer Park, New York.According to the accusations made in the lawsuit, Bishop Peter Anthony Libasci sexually abused the alleged victim when the child was around 12 or 13 years old on “numerous occasions”.

ANOTHER PROMINENT GRINDR PRIEST HITS THE DUST.

One of the highest ranking priests in the USA, Monsignor Jeffrey Burrill has resigned as general secretary to the US Catholic Bishops Conference after admitting using the gay hook up app GRINDR to find men for sex.

Burrill used the app in cities all over the US to meet men for sex while on bishop’s conference business.

BISHOPS STATEMENTS

In a brief statement released later in the day by its Office of Public Affairs, the USCCB, like Archbishop Gomez in his memo, said it had received “impending media reports alleging possible improper behavior” by Msgr. Burrill and that the priest had resigned, effective immediately, “to avoid becoming a distraction” to the conference’s operations and ongoing work.


“The conference takes all allegations of misconduct seriously and will pursue all appropriate steps to address them,” the statement said.

“I ask for your prayers for Monsignor, and for the conference staff during this difficult time,” Archbishop Gomez said. “We also pray that all those affected might find strength and comfort in our merciful Lord.”

A priest of the Diocese of La Crosse, Wisconsin, Msgr. Burrill was named general secretary after the result of voting by the bishops that was announced the first day of the USCCB’s annual fall general assembly. He had been the conference’s associate general secretary since March 1, 2016.


The Diocese of La Crosse issued a statement saying Bishop William P. Callahan and diocesan representatives “are saddened to hear the media reports related to Msgr. Burrill. The Diocese of La Crosse pledges its full cooperation with the conference of Catholic bishops to pursue all appropriate steps in investigating and addressing the situation.”

“Please remember Msgr. Burrill and all affected in your prayers so they may find refuge and strength in God’s unfailing love,” it added.

PAT SAYS:

Im truly amazed that after all the exposure of priests looking gay sex on Grindr, many priests, all over the world, are still using Grindr on a daily or nightly basis.

This guy, Burrill is a “big fish”.

Very many of the secretaries of the bishop’s conferences go on to be bishops and archbishops.

Im sure this would have been the career path for Burrill.

He has now being shot down in flames as a result of these allegations.

Very often these chaps are brought down by men they have met who have been left with some resentment or hurt.

“Hell hath no fury by a gay scorned”.

There is also the question of massive hypocrisy. People like Burrill represent and uphold the RCCs anti gay teachings and yet think they can dabble on the side themselves.

BURRILL WANTED TO BAN JOE BIDEN FROM RECEIVING HOLY COMMUNION.

But was meeting multiple guys for gay sex at the same time.

Massive hypocrisy.

****

I WONDER IF THERE IS A MC CARRICK CONBECTION TO ALL THIS?

HUMOUR


Ruthie from Wexford the small town gossip and self-appointed monitor of church morals, was always one to stick her nose into other people’s business. Most members of the congregation did not approve of her intrusions, but she was feared, so all maintained their silence.


She took that fatal step too far one day, when she accused Paddy, a new member, of being an alcoholic after she saw his old pickup parked in front of the small town’s only bar all afternoon. She emphatically told Paddy (in front of several others) that EVERYONE SEEING THAT PICKUP THERE WOULD KNOW WHAT HE WAS DOING!


Paddy, a man of few words, stared at her for a moment then just turned and walked away. He didn’t explain, defend, or deny. He said nothing.


Later that evening, Paddy quietly parked his pickup in front of Ruthie’s house from Wexford , walked home ….and left it there all night!!

BISHOP OF CLIFTON, BRISTOL, BANS LATIN MASS AND KEEPS LGBT MASS.

Declan Lang

Bishop Declan Lang is a canon lawyer and decided to put Francis’ ban on latin Mass into immediate effect.

In doing so he is promulgating the news rules from Rome.

He cannot be accused of doing anything wrong but perhaps he can be accused of insensitivity and haste.

It is important that the global RCC proposes one form of the liturgy and bans other forms that are jampots for religious wasps like the nutcases and rebels who use the Latin liturgy to deny the papacy of Francis, the validity of the Second Vatican Council and to promote the homosexual priests who like to crossdress for Mass.

Both JP 11 and Benedict were wrong to create the slippery slope that has led us to where are today.

Francis had to alternative but to strike swiftly and strongly.

The Latin Mass crowd can always go to the SSPX where they will find a warm welcome.

Cardinal to be Arthur Roach, will apply Francis’ instructions to the “t”.

SPECIAL GAY MASSES

Ideally people should attend the Eucharist in their own parish.

Often, nasty PPs send people searching for other churches.

Gay Masses are generally celebrated by gay priests or gay friendly priests.

But at the Eucharist, we gather as Christians, and not as gay, straight or trans.

Special gay Masses would not be necessary if the Church itself, and its priests, were more enlightened and sensitive to the luves of gay Catholics.

THE PRIESTS I’VE LIVED WITH.

I have worked in ONE PARISH as a DEACON and SIX PARISHES as a curate.

In those places I have worked alongside 14 PRIESTS.

So, I think I can speak from EXPERIENCE.

In my first parish in Wales – LLANRUMNEY, the only day the PP and curate went out anywhere was on their day off. They stayed in their sitting rooms all day. The PP was a nice man and very good to me.

In my first parish as a priest, BRIDGEND, my PP, who was a total alcoholic, Irish hating bastardo, only came out for his meals and drank the rest of the time.

In my second parish in Wales, BRITON FERRY, my PP, who was also an alcoholic,was very nice until I displeased his live in “housekeeper” and they both left the parish suddenly as a result of admiratio. His replacement and housekeeper were very nice but I was moved away weeks after he took over.

In my third parish in Wales, WHITCHURCH the PP was an angry and aggressive Tipperary bastardo, and I refused to stay with him.

In 1978 I arrived in ST PETER’S CATHEDRAL BELFAST and lived with 5 other priests.

VINCENT MC KINLEY, was the administrator and was very friendly with me until the senior curate got jealous. He then changed and was brutal for my last 4 years there. He was totally focused on money and was addicted to gambling and perving on young women and girls. He was banned from our girls secondary school by the famous Sister Genevieve. He said a private Mass in Latin everyday except Sunday.

JOE MC GURNAGHAN,was the jealous senior curate. He spent all day every day, listening to classical music and only left the house on Thursdays, his day off. He was cynical and bullied me. Later in life, in Lourdes, he admitted this and said he regretted it.

JIMMY MC CABE was a very traditional and pious man, visited the homes of the elderly everyday. He and Vincent McKinley, in spite of having three meals together everyday, had not spoken for 14 years.

PETER DONNELLY was an everyday golfer and party goer. He was later charged with sexual abuse and aquitted.

SEAN CRUMMEY was a Salesian who visited certain old ladies everyday who plied him with whiskey and money.

KILKEEL where my PP was the dreaded Canon Walter Larkin, former president of St Malachy’s Belfast. All curates feared they would be sent to Walter.

Cahal Daly deliberately sent me to Walter.

This was our first conversation:

W = Walter

P = Pat

W. Well Buckley, what do you think of me.

P. Walter, I don’t know you but I have heard that you are nasty and difficult to work for.

W. Have you now? Well I’ve heard that your are very disobedient and rebellious!

W. Do you know that all the priests are waiting for me and you to go to war?

P. I didnt actually know that but I fear it could be possible.

W. Right then (says Walter holding out his hand) lets fool them and be friends.

And friends we were. He sent for me on his death bed..

He spent the latter part of his life thinking he would go to hell 😢

DENIS NEWBERRY was my fellow curate in Kilkeel. He was grossly obese but friendly. Very soon he was transferred to be chaplain in a Belfast hospital. He died very young.

GEORGE MC CLAFFFERTY was Denis’ replacement in Kilkeel. When I met George, he had one foot firmly in nuerosis and the other dangling in psychosis. He was very mean with money and had the ability to be a bully if you allowed him. He immediately fell in love with the youngest nun in the local convent. He had a dog called Cora with home he shared his medication – diazepam. He was a good house visitor. He ended up sadly, with the two feet in psychosis.

PADDY MC VEIGH

My PP in Larne. Former rebel himself. Nice man. No hassle. The day Daly sacked ne Paddy came to my door and said: “I wish I had your balls”.

GERRY MC ALEER – fellow curate in Larne. Religious order priests – Marist I think. Aggressive and sadistic. Liked to ask very young children about sex in the confessional. Slapped the hands of anyone looking Communion on the hand. Finally banished to Rathlin Island.

SEAN ROGAN – one of the worst priests I ever worked with. Company man. Sneaky. Tale carrier. Sent in by Daly to watch me in my last year.

A story. An old lady was dying in Larne hospital. Family rang Rogan for Last Rites. He said he couldnt cone because he was having lunch with friends. The family panicked and rang me. I went immediately and anointed the dying woman and gave her Communion. Someone told Rogan I was there. He burst into the room and said loudly: “Don’t worry folks. You have a real priest here now”.

Rogan proceeded to put his finger in the dying woman’s mouth, removed the host I had placed there, which was dripping in saliva and swallowed it himself and then gave her a new host. He said some prayers and said goodbye in a high putched voice.

I stood silently in the window and said nothing. The woman’s daughters burst into tears and apologised to me.

FINAL WORD

That’s a potted history of my experiences of working with RC priests.

Everything I have said is 100% truthful.

Of course there will be the usual clerical comments today accusing me of pretending to be perfect and all other priests bad. Of course I do not claim that and never have.

In fact all my “warts” are on Google 🙃

I am simply telling the very unwelcome truth.

OUR BORIS

If (Eton College version)

By Brian Bilston

If you can keep your job when all around you
Lies ravaged from what it is you’ve done;
If intellect and common sense confound you
And if integrity you have but none;
If you can lie and not be tired by lying,
And pretend you act for the public good,
But then leave the people to their dying
And say you did, sadly, all you could:

If you can dream – of nothing more than power;
If you can think – but only of yourself;
If you believe this country’s finest hour
Is when the chosen few can gain more wealth;
If you can flout the law with bluff and bluster
And not care whether you are believed,
Or deny with scorn every single blunder
And not care how many you may deceive:

If you can stir up hatred, fear and violence
To create division to suit your ends;
And answer cries for help with silence,
And then laugh about it with your friends:
If you can stretch this country to its limit
Or until it is you’ve had your fun,
Yours is this land and everything that’s in it,
And—as you wished—you’ll be PM, my son

THE HIRED MINISTRY BUSINESS IN THE CHURCH

IN SPITE OF COVID AMY HAS £ 50,000 A YEAR TO SPARE – £150,000 OVER THREE YEARS

When I was in St Peter’s Cathedral – 1978 – 1983 we had no fancy paid ministers.

The priests, or at least some of them we the youth ministers etc.

My day started off at 9 am visiting the primary school in my area.

At 11 am I went to our girl’s secondary school with 1500 girls in it

I had a sandwich with the staff on the staff room and ministeredto them there

In the afternoon I went to our boys, St Peters, secondary school.

I then did some house visitation.

I saw people in the presbytery from 6.30 pm until 7.30 pm.

I then went to the parish youth club from 7.30 om until 9

Every night, as it eas the Troubles I walked around the perimeter if the parish to see was well before going to bed.

We had 8 Masses for 12,000 people every Sunday.

On Sunday afternoons I brought minibus loads from the youth club for a drive, either to a park or an amusement arcade.

Wrongfully, as I now see I seldom too a day off.

I was 26 and full of energy.

It did not bother me in the lease.

We had no youth ministers, no funeral teams, marriage teams or lay pastoral assistants.

I loved every minute of my work and I as close to the people as I could posdibly have been.

To this day, 38 years later, it gives me joy to bump into former parishioners, who recall our time together with great joy.

ARE TODAY’S PRIESTS LAZY?

Not all of them, especially the older ones But many are.

They say Mass and do a funeral or two and talk about being exhausted.

In Kilkeel I had 6 Masses on some days and never complained about being exhausted.

I also say to complainingpriests: “How could you cope with an 8 hour day on a building site”?

I And so many newly ordained these day are into Latin Mass, vestments, cassocks and spending hours each day with their other priest friends drinking pink gins and talking about the gay scene.

If you want to the priesthood can be a very lazy, cosy life.

And while these priests ate not doing any work they are paying lay employees and using volunteers to do their work for them.

GOD BE WITH THE DAYS WHEN PRIESTS WERE MEN AND PANSY WAS THE NAME OF A FLOWER,” 😁

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 😁
