  2. I attend a NO Mass every day. Since SP, I have been to about 7 or 8 EF Masses.

    Thank you, Holy Father, for allowing me to experience this sacred liturgy of the Church, may it flourish in every parish, may the splendor of its beauty lead countless souls to the Truth that is Our Lord, and his Church.

    I pray that in my life time the EF may become the OF.

  5. Today is the third anniversary of the Motu Proprio, Summorum Pontificum, by Pope Benedict XVI. Has there been progress in the implementation of this MP? Do bishops still seek to find roadblocks to its full implementation? What are we to think of the future for Tradition, the Mass, the Catechism, the teachings, the prospects or lack thereof for Unity in the Roman Rite?

    I have no answers to these questions but I do think it's wise to think of the importance attached to this date in our beloved Church. Accordingly, I beg His Holiness to unleash the small army of traditional priests that stand at the ready to further the cause of Tradition. Please, Holy Father, give them the canonical status and faculties under your personal jurisdiction.

    Dear readers:

    I do not if this has a relationship with the Anniversary, but it coul be true.

    I copy a link of a very popular spanish site of ex-members of the Opus Dei. The site is very critical about Opus Dei and deals with personal stories of their contributors -mostly ex-members-.

    Obviously this site do not have the approval of Opus Dei Superiors.

    The fact is that some members of Opus Dei enter this site to be aware of Opus Dei rumors from "outside" (due to the secretive and sectarean behaviours "ad intra opera") and sometimes they give information from inside Opus Dei´s structures.

    Well, a numerary member -whose nickname is Nicanor- had said that an important note has been sent from Rome to ALL Opus Dei´s centres in the WORLD, stating that Mons. Fellay and the SSPX had asked the Holy Father Benedict XVI to regularize the SSPX under the form of a Personal Prelature, such as Opus Dei.

    The Opus Dei Superiors from Rome have asked all Opus Dei members worldwide to pray for this not to occur. They want this structure to Opus Dei exclusively.

    It is the first paragraph of the article. The following is not related to this matter.

    Any news?

    Bad News

    Remember the Raymond Gravel scandal? It is the worst scandal of the post-conciliar age. The worst of all.

    For a while, all has been quiet on the Gravel front. Archbishop Luigi Ventura was replaced as nuntius to Canada and sent to be nuntius to France. Gravel was kept as a parish priest on condition that he get out of politics, which is still a scandalous affair beyond belief. Henry Morgentaler would make a better priest than Raymond Gravel.

    Now here is the latest. It almost broke my spirit when I read this news. I feel right now like leaving the Church and could use some spiritual consolation. Here it is:

    "JOLIETTE, Quebec, 6 July, 2010 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The Diocese of Joliette
    in the south-west of Quebec has announced that they will be hosting
    catechetical formation in the Cathedral next month, under the tutelage of
    the controversial and famously-dissident former Member of Parliament Fr. [sic]
    Raymond Gravel [or should they have written 'Male Prostitute Raymond Gravel'].

    "The training session is being held over two days, August 28 and September
    25, and is meant for catechetical leaders, teachers, and parents. Fr. Gravel
    will be joined by Fr. Rémi Bourdon in leading the sessions."


    There it is. Canada's pro-abortionist and pro-homerastic priest will now catechise and form teachers of catechesis. I wonder if 'Fr.' Gravel will demonsrate how to fit a condom? There's catechesis for you. Or he could train the catechists on how to commit an abortion.

    As I have remarked before, it was not acceptable that he be allowed to serve as a priest in any circumstances. Now that Ventura is gone and Cardinal Ouellet has been sent to Rome, all hell is breaking loose.

    Gravel is being protected by the Bolshevik Bishop of Joliette, Jules Lussier. Unfortunately, Lussier has five years to go before he turns 75. Can no one rid us of this troublesome fraud?

    P.K.T.P.

  16. Anonymous6:19 AM

    Just think of it:

    Fr. Raymond Gravel, who favours the legalisation of abortion and inverted marriage, and is himself a former male prostitute, is fully regularised. His faculties are sound and his Masses are licit. He is a priest in good standing! I can fulfil my Sunday obligation by going to his Masses!, even though this would imperil my soul.

    The Masses of the S.S.P.X, on the other hand, are illicit. What makes them illicit? Is it because they do not offer our Lord on a coffee table and do not supply the congregation with ashtrays and lighters, as the Cardinal of Vienna does? Is it because they do not venerate 'Saint' Judas Iscariot, as another Austrian bishop does?

    Perhaps the Society Masses would be acceptable to Cardinal Daneels if Society priests would get investigated by the Belgian police for child abuse, or they could pass out condoms after the Pax.

    The time has come to 'include' and 'tolerate' the S.S.P.X--if it agrees to be associated with this mess, that is. Recognising Society Masses would not make the Society look better but it would improve Rome's own image. This is what fool journalists refer to as 'optics'. Human beings call it 'appearances'.

  18. Summorum Pontificum has made its impact in many countries. Here in England and Wales, the number of Masses in the usus antiquior has increased substantially, and about 100 priests who did not do so three years ago are offering the older form of the Mass at least occasionally.

    However, we still await substantial progress. My guess is that this will only happen when all seminarians have at least the option of learning the older form.

  23. \\He has yet to offer the TLM. \\

    While he has not yet celebrated the Extraordinary Form (proper terminology) publicly, my understanding is that he DOES do so privately.

    He has the same right as as any priest of the Latin Church to celebrate in either the Ordinary or Extraordinary form at will.

    \\Therefore, offering the TLM is not of great importance to His Holiness.\\

    Following your logic, since His Holiness has not celebrated in the Byzantine, Chaldean, Syriac, Maronite, Armenian, Coptic, or Ethiopian liturgical forms--all of which are used by the Catholic Church--none of these are of importance to him, either.

    To say nothing about other traditional Western liturgies, namely the Mozarabic, Ambrosian, and Bragan.

    But it isn't all Rome -- +Fellay has said again and again that they don't want to be regularized until doctrinal issues are worked out. If BXVI were to unilaterally regularize the SSPX, I don't think they would accept it. It takes both parties.

    Well, perhaps a sign has come after all:

    IMPORTANT NEWS

    It looks as if I was correct about the situation in Colombia. A coadjutor was appointed for Cali on 3rd June, just a month ago. At the time, I noted that this may spread to the Cardinal-Archbishop of Bogotà because many of the incidents reported by the former vicar-general were on his watch, when he was Archbishop of Cali. Today, the Holy Father RETIRED THE CARDINAL! They will try to imply that this is normal, since Pedro Cardinal Rubiano Sàenz was nearly 78 years old. But cardinal-archbishops of major sees typically stay on until they are 80--they get their extra five years, just like Cardinal Vidal of Cebu and the recent Cardinal Kitbunchu of Bangkok. Cardinal O'Connor of N.Y. also comes to mind.

    The Pope has transferred the Archbishop of Barranquilla to Bogotà, unusual since he is already nearly 68 years old. He will likely get a red hat and about twelve years of rulership.

    The question now is how much longer before the coadjutor will take over from Archbishop Sarasti Jaramillo of Cali. If this crisis has brought down the Cardinal-Archbishop, I'm figuring that the prelate at the centre of the storm will not survive for long. They needed to get the Cardinal off the scene before the proverbial matter hit the fan.

    This is another sign that Benedict XVI will not tolerate prelates who cover up sexual abuse and ignore scandals.

    No, Jack, proper terminology is "Traditional Latin Mass". "'Extraordinary Form'" is erroneous terminology; it is a error of Msgr. Perl inserted in "Summoruum Pontificum".

    But even were it not an error, what leads you to the conclusion that "Traditional Latin Mass" is incorrect terminology? Where does Rome say that this terminiology is wrong? If you look at S.P., you will see that Rome herself uses other names for our Mass, such as the 'Missal of John XXIII' and the '1962 Mass'.

    Are you denying that the T.L.M. is traditional (i.e. handed down over ages)? Are you denying that it is offered in Latin? Are you denying that it is a Mass? If not, then it is the Traditional Latin Mass.

    Of course, those of us who know a thing or two realise that it is also a separate Rite of Mass and not a 'form' of one Rite. But that's another story ....

    No, Jack, this position is NOT logical. First of all, the Pope is also the head of the Latin Church; he is the Patriarch of the West. Liturgical expression always respects this fact because the liturgy has not followed any 'common Rite' since the first century. Hence Eastern patriarchs don't celebrate Roman Masses normally, although some Eastern priests do have faculties to be 'biritual'.

    The Ambrosian Rite is proper to Milan and certain parishes in nearby sees. So there is no reason for this Pope to offer it. However, I do believe that one Pope who was from Milan did offer it from time to time when he was Pope.

    Local uses, such as the Braga Use are for priests of local sees.

    If there really are two 'forms' of one Roman Mass, or if there are two general Rites of Mass in the Latin Church, then it follows that both are proper to the Pope as Chief of the Roman Rite--whether he chooses to use his patriarchal title or not.

Fellay and the SSPX had asked the Holy Father Benedict XVI to regularize the SSPX under the form of a Personal Prelature, such as Opus Dei."


    I do not accuse our Anon. here of anything at all but his source is an outright liar. Bishop Fellay would never be so foolish as to request such an inadequate structure, as I've demonstrated before. Canon 295 would make it impossible for the affiliates of the S.S.P.X, and Canon 297 would make it required for lcoal bishops to admit the S.S.P.X into their sees. Moreover, Bishop Fellay as said emphatically and repeatedly that he will not accept even the right sort of structure until doctrinal talks are concluded. So what would he ask for a structure that would finish his Society?

    This story completely discredits the site in question. It suggests that all the contributors are unreliable.

    I am the anonymus of 4:23.

    I have only "delivered" the buzz "I have received" from that site. It could be false or inaccurate.

    But I was in the past a numerary member from Opus Dei and I can say without hesitation that Opus Dei´s members are as indifferent with traditionalism, as fanaticals in being the only one Personal Prelature in the Church, directly under the authority of the Holy Father.

    Perhaps the Holy Father is only thinking in put the SSPX under his personal authority: it is enough for Opus Dei Superiors (fanaticals too, as most of its members) to order all the Prelature to pray against that, saying that the prayers are for an intention of Father Javier Echavarría (and not revealing the content of that intention).

    So, the buzz could not be precise, but surely someting is in progress. That notes from Rome are anyting, but not a joke or a story.

    1. Summorum Pontificum deals with the TLM, not with Liturgies listed above.

    2. His Holiness supposedly (according to Cardinal Castrillón) desires that each parish offer the Traditional Latin Mass.

    Therefore, one would think that His Holiness would lead by ultimate example by offering the TLM.

    Actions speak louder than words...one leads by example.

    When His Holiness has desired to lead by example in regard to ecumenism and "interfaith" dialogue, he has prayed with Eastern Orthodox and visited a Lutheran community, synagogue and mosque.

    Again, one would think that the Pope who (supposedly) desires that each Latin parish would offer the TLM.

    3. His Holiness was ordained a priest to offer the TLM, not the Rites listed in your response.

    Therefore, if anything, one would think that His Holiness would wish to offer publicly the very Mass that he was ordained to offer.

    4. The Latin Church has collapsed in great part due to Her having cast aside the TLM.

    Have we not been informed by Churchmen close to His Holiness that our Pope believes that the TLM is the key to restoring liturgical sanity to the Latin Church?

    Therefore, is it not logical to expect the Holy Father to offer the Traditional Latin Mass?

    5. The bottom line is that Pope Benedict XVI issued Summorum Pontificum.

    You may not agree, but I find it difficult to believe that not once during the past three years has His Holiness promoted Summorum Pontificum in the most powerful way imaginable:

    that is, by having offered the Traditional Latin Mass publicly.

    I truly should not expect my bishops and Latin Church priests within my diocese to offer the TLM publicly when His Holiness, who has issued Summorum Pontificum, does not offer the Traditonal Latin Mass publicly.

    Should we really expect the Pope to celebrate the Traditional Mass?

    If he did, we know the Vatican would emphasis to the hilt that in no way has the Pope rejected the Novus Ordo, it's not a "roll back", etc.

    But interestingly, liberals and traditionalists would agree that it was.

    Liberals would cry that Vatican II has been overthrown. The liturgical reform has been betrayed, etc.

    Traditionalists would also follow that line.

    So, the Vatican doesn't know what to do.

    They know the liturgical "reform" has been a tremendous flop. But they can't bring themselves to return to the Traditional Mass.
