ROME — Pope Francis cracked down Friday on the spread of the old Latin Mass, reversing one of Pope Benedict XVI’s signature decisions in a major challenge to traditionalist Catholics who immediately decried it as an attack on the ancient liturgy. Francis reimposed restrictions on celebrating the Latin Mass that Benedict relaxed in 2007. The pontiff said he was taking action because Benedict’s reform had become a source of division in the church and been used as a tool by Catholics opposed to the Second Vatican Council, the 1960s meetings that modernized the liturgy. Francis issued a new law requiring individual bishops to approve celebrations of the old Mass

Comments:

Many old Catholics, and idealistic young ones, have enormous respect for the ancient Latin mass. But ignorant Church administrators find it to be subversive. So the Pope has decided that the way to heal the division between old and new is to be more divisive. This won't end well

Anyone reading this who attended a Latin mass means it’s not ancient. Traditional, but not ancient. Actually timeless if you ask me.

Both ancient and timeless, #3. Once again, the commie pope gets it exactly wrong. Good luck enforcing it. There are churches which will continue with the traditional Tridentine mass no matter what the Vatican says. We used to attend one back in the late 90’s/early 2,000’s when it was “forbidden”.

I went from being an altar boy in the early 1950s, capable of reciting my part of the Mass in Latin, soothed by the unintrusive sounds of the church organ, to a congregant in a noisy, guitar plucking hootenanny. And all of that happened within the span of a decade. And no matter the country I served in, prior to the hootenanny liturgy phase, I could enjoy the Mass. But that all changed.

Francis is just like Joe Biden--a socialist dunce, jealous of the success and popularity of his predecessor, and eager to tear down his legacy and policies. After 70 years, I quit the Church because of Francis and now worship elsewhere

does it matter if a person prays in, polish, Italian,etc., or Latin. think Frank should stick to the problem of bishops who stop priests from speaking the truth about how bishops protect those who support abortion (biden)and bringing and protecting illegals. More money is given by this government to bishops to protect illegals then stopping abortions.

#5 - it isn't just the Catholic church that went nuts - I've have trouble finding a Presbyterian (or any Protestant) church whose service isn't a "What's Happenin' Now, guitar and drum disaster with "praise music" instead of beautiful hymns. Luckily, there are a few traditional churches around that stream their services and they're a joy to "attend." In addition to liberals ruining everything they touch, I would also say Boomers have done a lot of damage as well - they're the ones who wanted to "modernize" the mainstream Protestant churches and drove many into a ditch.

Being an Orthodox Christian, this thinking bewilders me... as does Francis. The Orthodox mass, which we call the Divine Liturgy, was written in about 400 AD with a slightly older version being used during Lent. Other than being translated into the local languages of the people (in most cases) that's all the change that has happened. It's quite amazing to know the words and scriptures that inspire and comfort me on Sunday are the exact same words that have inspired and comforted billions for over 1600 years. In our busy world, it is wonderful to experience that timelessness. I assume that is also how the Latin Mass feels. It is terrible to restrict the use of something that gives the flock of Christ comfort and peace.

My father hated the change from Latin. He was outspoken about it. I was in 6th grade and I had learned the Mass in Latin. I never liked the hootenanny style, and then when they added electric guitars and keyboards, I think it drove people away. I spent 30 years on the evangelical side and then came back to Catholicism around the year 2000. I discovered there was a fullness I didn't experience with evangelicals. At a soul level, it worked for me. I learned the Bible as an evangelical, and it's come in handy if I need to discuss it with others. And it's great in my men's prayer group. But the protestant movement started in the 1500s. They ignore 1500 years of history and teaching. And they don't have an appreciation for the art and music that developed prior to the reformation. DO they really believe that the church began with Luther at the Wittenburg Door. I don't like a few things in the Catholic church, nor their support for pro-abortion politicians, their lack of outreach to young people. I don't like the pope. In fact I haven't liked any after Pope John 23.

I was15 years old when Vatican II was implemented and it was the advent of my departure from the Church. Like #5 I had been an Altar boy and loved the Latin and the rituals "Pange lingua gloriosi corporis mysterium". Universal slowly became localized and rules changed from diocese to diocese. While in the Navy in foreign countries I didn't feel a part of the Mass. The end came when I married a non Catholic and I could not find a priest who would bless the Sacrement without strict adherence to RCC doctrine I did not believe she should have go accept.. Adios!

Sorry, the Pope decreed this? The Pope that we’ve been told is dying? No, this is rule by staffers, just like in Washington DC. The Latin mass is closer to the Church’s roots, therefore it cannot be allowed to stand, as it might heighten the difference between conservative Catholicism and the liberal morass the current Church has become. People who like the Latin mass like the aesthetic. Leave them alone.

And so begins the Passion of the Bride of Christ, the Church, just as Our Lord said. The Freemasons who infiltrated the Church thought they buried the Traditional Latin Mass with Vatican II, and the Greatest Generation for the most part obediently rolled over and accepted the Novus Ordo. Their children, the Baby Boomers and Generation X, left starving by the watered down and often even invalid Masses. have left the Church in droves. But thanks to Archbishop Lefebvre who preserved it, and our Pope in exile, Benedict, the TLM not only was kept alive but in recent years, thrived. I was just a baby when the change occurred. I will not have it be taken from me again! All of this is happening just as was foretold by Our Lady at Fatima, Akita and in the vision of Pope Leo XIII. To all of you, Catholic or not, ask yourself what Power does the pre Vatican II Mass have and why does Bergolio and his cabal want so badly to suppress it? Read Infiltration by Dr. Taylor Marshall and anything by Archbishop Vigano to understand there's not only the Deep State but the Deep Church. The Remnant of the Church will survive. We have Christ's promise. St. Michael the Archangel defend us in battle!

Re #5....my biggest problem with going to church today (not Catholic church) is the horrible music. I'm sorry, singing Christmas songs does NOT go with a fool with a drum kit crashing away. What is wrong with a simple piano or organ, and no other instruments except human voices? And why no old hymns like Rock of Ages, or Onward Christian Soldiers or dozens of others that I love from my youth? The biggest thing keeping me from going to church every Sunday is the hideous music. It really is insipid and depressing, and I just can't bear it.

It's one thing to officially handicap the Latin Mass. It's a worse thing to blame the Latin Mass in 2021 for 'divisiveness' caused by officially handicapping the Latin Mass in 1965.

Also, read on Spirit Daily today, that vocations to the priesthood were exploding in parishes with the Latin rite masses. There is about a 7 to 1 ratio of vocations coming from Latin Mass parishes as compared to parishes that only offer the ordinary mass. Read this quote on a Malachi Martin site: "One must resist the Pope who openly destroys the Church ." St. Cajetan

There is still room for the Traditional Latin Mass, though the local Bishop again has authority over most of the manners of public worship within his own diocese. Some of the traditional form's devotees do go overboard, to the point of rejecting the entirety of Vatican II, and need some restraint. But many of their counterparts also go way overboard in their vitriol against the TLM. It will bear watching how this gets implemented (and how many places are forced to choose whether to give up the Latin or give up fidelity to Rome). Especially because there are many Bishops who view traditionalists as absolute heretics.

I had not been to mass in years until I went to my mother's funeral mass. It was not a Latin mass (though my mother loved it), but it was a very peaceful, traditional mass. I actually enjoyed it enough to where I decided to go to our local parish Sunday mass the next week. OMG I wish it was just a hootenanny! It was annoying, grating and an assault to the senses, hardly a place for prayer. Haven't been back.

#17~ With all due respect, it is heart-wrenching that, after more than 500 years, there remains a visceral hatred for Pastor Martin Luther and the Reformation. Martin Luther’s love for God was the essence of his “reform.” His principal concern was “the proclamation of the gospel, and all other liturgical practices were secondary.” Dr. Luther kept as much as possible in the worship service that he had inherited but removed elements he found contrary to the gospel or distracted people from the main message; he celebrated the Mass with highest reverence. Pastor Luther understood that “liturgical forms change over time based on the setting and the needs of each community. ... Liberty must prevail in these matters and Christians must not be bound by laws and ordinances. That is why the Scriptures prescribe nothing in these matters, but allow for freedom for the Spirit to act according to his own understanding as the respective place, time, and persons may require it. ... Dr. Luther did urge restraint in order to preserve unity in the church. ... As far as possible, we should observe the same rites and ceremonies, just as all Christians have the same baptism and the same sacrament and no one has received a special one of his own from God.” Pastor Luther “saw consistency in worship forms to be especially useful for training the uneducated and the young.” Succeeding generations of Lutherans have followed Pastor Luther’s directives; “the Reformers sought to put the gospel back at the center of worship. ... “of promoting worship that would strengthen faith through the proclamation of the gospel.” No, Lutherans do not “believe that the church began with Luther at the Wittenberg Door.” Quite the contrary—the 95 Theses reflected the heart of a man “captive to the Word of God.” That “the Church is a community of believers, not a hierarchy of officials ... the Bible alone is our authority and not the councils or leaders of the Church.” A traditional Lutheran worship service consists of: Invocation, Confession and Absolution; Kyrie, Hymn of Praise, Word of God and Sermon, Creed, Offertory, Sanctus, Words of Our Lord, Agnus Dei, Distribution, Nunc Dimittis, Benediction. Pastor Luther was a courageous man; he was a monk, a priest, a preacher, a professor, a writer, and a Reformer—“one of the most courageous and influential people in all of history.” This thread reflects the frustrations of Catholics regarding restrictions imposed by Pope Francis on the Latin Mass. Martin Luther was frustrations with the “practices of indulgences.” Ldotters vent on Lucianne.com. Martin Luther vented at the Wittenberg door. #15,#29~ Although not as popular as some denominations or today’s trend of nondenominational churches, a traditional, Scripture-bound church does exist and, depending on the size of the congregation, may offer a traditional as well as a contemporary worship service with traditional or contemporary music; in a smaller congregation, a worship service may be a mix of both traditional and contemporary music.

Key inflation measure rises at

Consumer prices roared higher last month, rising at their fastest pace in decades. Inflation rose 5% in the 12-months ending in May, the Bureau of Labor Statistics reported Thursday. That marked the biggest jump since August 2008. Stripping out food and energy costs, which tend to be more volatile, inflation stood at 3.8% over that 12- month period. It was the biggest increase in so-called core inflation since June 1992. In the month of May alone, prices rose 0.6% on a seasonally adjusted basis, slightly less than in April. Core inflation, excluding food and energy prices, stood at 0.7%, down from 0.9% in April.
