- Traditionis custodes – 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.”
Shocking? Get used to it. As the Synod on Synods moves forward, we see that the one established foundation of truth for dialogue is that everyone is infallible. We’re just to make it all up as we go along. A future post on that soon.
Everything Pope Francis has done through the years is consistent with dialectical materialism, which has only brought about the unity of the lowest common denominator: six feet below ground for the martyrs, hell for the sycophants after they are also buried. Memento mori.
Do I criticize publicly something that Pope Francis said or did publicly that needs criticizing for the sake of the salvation of souls? Yes. Cura animarum… Remember that, my friends?
This is what we are to do for each other as believers. Remember how Saint Paul rightly smacked down Peter when Peter what being a totally politically-correct sycophant of the idiocy du jour? Thank God. If Saint Paul didn’t do that, we wouldn’t have either Saint Paul or Saint Peter. If we don’t help each other out also in this fashion, we will go to hell for such a great lack of charity. I don’t want to go to hell. So, here we are. It ain’t my fault. I’m not the cause of division. Publicly pronounce sheer idiocy and I’ll be happy to provide a correction of that inanity. Every time. Not my fault.
If anyone wants to berate Jesus for being God, for being absolute, unmanipulatable Living Truth in all Charity, if anyone wants to tell Jesus that those wounds He still bears on his Risen Body are a joke, you tell him that. No, really! You go before Him at your judgment and tell Him that. No, better! Tell our dear Blessed Virgin Mother, the Immaculate Conception, now also in heaven soul and body, that her dear Son’s Sacrifice doesn’t count anymore. Be sure to tell her that not only was Jesus a damn fool for not being a man of consensus, but that she’s a damn fool too. I’ll be happy to watch what happens to you next. What a bunch of hypocrites.
I do not criticize Pope Francis’ person, as if I were somehow better than him. No. I’m the worst if I’m without the grace of our Lord. I’m just a jackass, but even a jackass gets to do what the dear Lord wants him to do.
Sorry, but I have to repeat this for the millionth time:
- I pray for Pope Francis.
- I mention his name in the Roman Canon.
- I add him to the prayers of the faithful.
- I actually offer Holy Mass for him. Let me repeat that: frequently, when there is a day with no Mass intention (and there are a lot of free days in this smallest of all parishes in North America), I will make Pope Francis the intention for that Mass, and I will publicly announce this, time and again, and again, and again. My question is, is there any priest or bishop in the world who prays more, offers Mass or has Mass offered more for Pope Francis than I do? Really, I doubt that. So, I will bring up that hypocrisy to anyone’s face that iterates that I’m somehow against the person of Pope Francis. I’m no schismatic. I want to be a faithful son of the Church. I’m just trying to do the best I can.
In this case, what I’m saying is that Traditionis custodes is an evil law, but an evil law is no law at all. Therefore, there is absolutely no question about obeying or not obeying Traditionis custodes, for it is simply nothing. It is to be ignored, you know, even as we pray for Pope Francis, even offering for him, as I have done, the Traditional Latin Mass in the main parish church at the main parish Mass, you know, even after 16 July 2021.

Thank you Father, for the chart. That is very helpful in understanding all this.
I pray for Pope Francis, too.
I understand Pope Francis’s decision on the Traditional Latin Mass (TLM). I suspect it is because the SPLC has labeled Radical Traditional Catholicism a “Hate Group.” Sure, they make exceptions for people that just like the TLM but nobody reads the fine print. Those that have the Pope’s ear just gave the headline. Besides, the Pope is in Italy and the political SPLC is an American entity.
