Francis wants to ban the Latin Mass outright

 Lifesite News is reporting:

"Several 'credible' sources informed a traditional Catholic media outlet that the Vatican is planning to issue a document 'banning' the Traditional Latin Mass, and a source informed LifeSiteNews that this will likely occur on July 16.

'An attempt is being made to implement, as soon as possible, a Vatican document with a stringent, radical, and final solution banning the Traditional Latin Mass,' reported Rorate Caeli on Monday, which attributed the news to 'the most credible sources, in different continents,' including from 'circles close to' Cardinal Arthur Roche, the prefect for the Dicastery for Divine Worship."

Have you ever encountered a priest, Bishop or layman who impugned the Latin Mass? Is such an attitude even Catholic? In a word, no. In his Apostolic Letter Ecclesia Dei, Pope John Paul II said that, "Respect must everywhere be shown for the feelings of all those who are attached to the Latin liturgical tradition...for the use of the Roman Missal according to the 1962 edition."

And, in his book "Salt of the Earth," Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger said, "I am of the opinion, to be sure, that the old rite should be granted much more generously to all those who desire it. It's impossible to see what could be dangerous or unacceptable about that. A community is calling its very being into question when it suddenly declares that what until now was its holiest and highest possession is strictly forbidden and when it makes the longing for it seem downright indecent."

To be sure, Vatican II called for an extended use of the vernacular. But nowhere did Vatican II call for the Latin language to be abolished from the liturgy. And anyone who claims otherwise is either ignorant of the facts or a liar. The Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy (Sacrosanctum Concilium) No. 36 states clearly that, "Particular law remaining in force, the use of the Latin language is to be preserved in the Latin rites."

Number 54 of this same Vatican II document teaches that, "In Masses which are celebrated with the people, a suitable place may be allotted to their mother tongue. This is to apply in the first place to the readings and "the common prayer," but also, as local conditions may warrant, to those parts which pertain to the people, according to the norm laid down in Art. 36 of this Constitution.

Nevertheless steps should be taken so that the faithful may also be able to say or to sing together in Latin those parts of the Ordinary of the Mass which pertain to them."

This is the teaching of Vatican II and the mind of the Church on the use of Latin and the attitude Catholics should have toward those who are attached to the Latin liturgical tradition.

It has long been known that the Devil hates Latin See here.

Who then will the Vatican be serving through such a move? Christ or Antichrist?

Such a move is sure to create schism and drive many traditional Catholics out of the Church, perhaps to the Orthodox Church.

Again, who will this serve. Who will benefit from creating such division in the Church?

You know the answer.

Facebook is banning this post as "spam" while asserting that it goes against "community standards."

Interesting no?

Yes, ban the traditional liturgy that made saints like Padre Pio and The Little Flower but welcome sodomites and transgender to the Vatican. We need a global exorcism.

Two points.

One: Until the Lord Himself comes and restores His Church, it is being run by devils. They have made themselves abundantly clear, nothing more is needed. Catholics ought to have nothing to do with them, they are of Satan. Pray, pray the rosary, find the underground church, the FSSP, the SSPX, continue your Catholic faith, pray the readings every day, pray more! But have nothing to do with these satanists. Pray the Lord clean the church of these evildoers.

Two: Why do we continue to allow media to subjugate us? One message like the one above should end use of it for good. I can't comprehend why anyone would continue, for any reason.

I agree Evangeline! The Mystical Body of Christ has been infected with the Mystical Body of Antichrist as Fulton Sheen had prophesied. These are perilous times. Pray the Rosary and look for a Latin Mass near to you.

As for participating in Facebook, it's still an opportunity to reach others, even if they do frequently engage in censorship.

Until these cardinals and the pope can offer a righteous defense for what thy are doing to the mass and the Catholic Church, I will consider them an emenym of the Church. Who are these prelates listening to or where do they originate?
