Traditionis custodes is defective as law, for it attempts to do evil things. Therefore, that “law” is not law at all. Traditionis custodes is not be obeyed nor disobeyed, for it is nothing. It is to be ignored.
Some evil things:
- The lex orandi – the Sacrifice of Jesus at Holy Mass – is held to be invalid also as a source of faith, lex credendi. This is absurd, demonic. It’s not a law as it is evil.
- If temporarily the TLM is to be offered it cannot be offered in any parish church but rather Jesus must be tossed out of His own church.
But, I get it. These guys are nervous. They’re trying to out-politicize Pope Francis. Can’t be done. He’ll see through that instantly, and laugh. No one is better at politics than Pope Francis.
What has to be done is to demonstrate Traditionis custodes to be evil and therefore not a law at all instead of trying to find loopholes as if it were law to begin with.
Having said that, I’m quite sure my time will come to be put to the test: “Stop saying the TLM! Novus Ordo only!” As Saint Thomas More said, it depends on the wording. “Accept Vatican II!” It depends on the wording. We’ll see what happens. We have to be as clever as serpents while being innocent as doves.
