Solemn Mass Green Eye Candy

Can “Rome” be trusted? SSPX questions and beyond

Does Pope Francis think that young people who want Traditional Latin Mass are rigid, defensive, insecure?

I’ve been on the road for a couple days, so I’m just now getting to this.
From LifeSite [with my emphases and comments]:
Pope Francis on the young who like Latin Mass: ‘Why so much rigidity?’
[…]
Nooooo.
On second thought, I’m not going to put time and energy into this.
I … Continue reading

Wherein Fr. Z rants: Our worship, therefore our identity, needs orthotics.

I receive this from a reader…

This saint, after 1969, never said Mass using the Novus Ordo

Summorum Pontificum was a tremendous gift to the whole Church.  It was certainly one of the most – if not the most – important achievements of Benedict XVI, part of what I cal his Marshall Plan.  It is a great … Continue reading

This was sent by a priest friend.

Let me preface your viewing by saying that the older, traditional form of the Roman Rite is not susceptible to this sort of madness.
BTW… the real … Continue reading
