- Saint Francis of Assisi in times of TLM (Traditional Latin Mass): “Man should tremble, the world should vibrate, all heaven should be deeply moved when the Son of God appears on the altar in the hands of the priest.”
- Saint Pio of Pietrelcina, follower of Francis in times of TLM: “It would be easier for the world to survive without the sun than to do without the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.”
Contrast this with Pope Francis in Traditionis custodes, with his inescapable “logic” that the TLM is both illicit and invalid:
- Pope Francis in times of rebellion: Pope Francis says in Traditionis custodes, his “document” smashing down the TLM, that the Novus Ordo (the New Order of Mass) is “the only expression of the lex orandi [Law of Prayer] of the Roman Rite.” That lex orandi is defined in the accompanying letter with the Sacrifice of the Mass, the Last Supper united with Calvary, with what specifically happens with the two Consecrations. There is no expression of that Sacrifice to be found in the TLM, says Pope Francis. In other words, the Sacrifice of Jesus in the TLM is both illicit and invalid because the only expression of the lex orandi, the Sacrifice of Jesus, is to be found with the Novus Ordo. But if one says that the Consecrations in the TLM are invalid, one is also saying that the Consecrations in any rite of Holy Mass are invalid. People have the pretense to say that they are “stunned” when I say that Traditionis custodes is an evil document. I have not changed my mind on that. If one denies Jesus, it is Jesus who will deny him before our Heavenly Father.
- Cardinal Arthur Roche, follower of Pope Francis in times of rebellion: Roche published his Responsa ad dubia, (responses to [contrived] doubts), execrating this: “The exclusion of the parish church [as a venue for the TLM] is intended to affirm that the celebration of the Eucharist according to the previous rite, being a concession limited to these groups, is not part of the ordinary life of the parish community.” Jesus offered to our Heavenly Father in the territory of a parish has nothing to do with the life of the parish? Nothing? But if you say that the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is irrelevant in one rite, you say that the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass is irrelevant in every rite, including the Novus Ordo. I am stunned that anyone would support the assertion under any given circumstances that the Sacrifice of Jesus is NOTHING.
The real reason for all of this attack on Jesus and His Sacrifice?
- Both Pope Francis and his protégé, Cardinal Arthur Roche, are claiming that they can mess around with the lex orandi, the law of prayer, which they themselves define as the Sacrifice of Jesus.
- Both Pope Francis and his protégé, Cardinal Arthur Roche, are claiming that they can mess around with the lex credendi, the law of believing, for the law of praying is the law of believing. They have it that Sacred Tradition, the law of believing, can be manipulated by the Magisterium of the Church, you know, a power thing, so that any divinely provided living faith coming to the soul from the Holy Ghost with sanctifying grace, with divinely provided charity, with divinely provided hope, is NOTHING. For these two ecclesiastics, times so change entirely that world views, perspectives are also so entirely changed that Sacred Tradition (Traditiones in the Council of Trent’s description) is to be defined as merely whatever they say it happens to be in changing times. They don’t discount any truth in any time, but do assert that what they say to be today’s truth is different, even contradictory to yesterday’s truth, but is nevertheless valid, and, indeed, the only truth that is true today. But that means there is no truth in any time ever. God is eternal truth. God is absolute truth. Trent says that the apostles seem to provide for the continuance of the truth as if by hand – tradere – quasi per manus, but do not of themselves do this, for this work of Sacred Tradition is wrought by the Holy Ghost.
- The trashing first of the lex orandi, which action itself trashes the lex credendi, sets up a vicious circle, so that now, the Sacred Liturgy is given over to idol worship, providing then for false belief. Witness Pachamama of Francis, Nian of Cupich, Ganesh sycophancy spreading among priests on the Asian Subcontinent, et alii et cetera. Desecration of the Blessed Sacrament being almost ubiquitous.
This is damnable. It’s gotta stop. It’s gotta stop now. But who will say no to Satan and yes to Jesus?
The time is coming, very soon, in the midst of this great apostasy, when those who could simply grant the provisions in Canon 87 to dispense from disciplinary rules odious to the faithful (thus assisting them to get to heaven) will instead choose to do the power thing because, you know… POWER! Of course, they could also simply ignore Traditionis custodes and the Responsa ad dubia as illegitimate assertions of disciplinary actions and let the Lord’s Little Flock get on their way to heaven.
Imagine the punishment for spitting on Jesus and Mary:

Never has Matthew 13:30 terrified me more! May we, O Lord, be brought in as wheat.
Yes, indeed; my prayer as well.
Don’t yell at me. So I can legitimately ignore illegitimate assertations and still be in line with the Holy See? (That’s kind of what I did when we were required to wear masks in church – different thing, but in principle?)
Anyway, all this spitting in the face of Jesus and His Mother with the back and forth of whatever is going on with the TLM is making me weary…but maybe that’s what the evil one is trying to do, wear us down. Go to hell Satan.
Thank you God for Father George David Byers.
I’m nobody. Thank Jesus.
Pope Leo XIII’s vision says the demon’s time is winding down. He won’t get everyone, but he is busy, busy, busy getting as many as he can. As far back as Dante’s Divina Comedia there have been clerics, bishops and priests in hell. They are not immune from eternal punishment just like the rest of us, whether or not they believe it or not. We need more prayer and more courage. Those are our weapons. The Church on earth is not called the Church Militant for nothing. Venerable Archbishop Fulton John Sheen said that the future of the Church depends on faithful laity. He meant it.
It seems to me that Pope Francis is the Church’s 9/11; Cardinal Arthur Roche one of his wrecking crew.
