I’ll lead off with a mind exercise. It is possible that the rumored document that would undo Benedict XVI’s “emancipation proclamation” Summorum Pontificum is actually founded on a well-constructed campaign of disinformation. It could be a psy-op designed to get “trads” to over-react, rear up in defiance before anything is promulgated. Like a “false flag” operation, it would give the powers-that-be cover to enact what they want because, after all, “look how they are behaving”. Göring bragged that the Nazis actually started the Reichstag Fire in order to be able to blame the Communists, whom they then had an excuse to repress. A recent alleged “insurrection” was probably a “false flag” operation. These folks are good as this sort of thing.
That’s the mind exercise.
Paix Liturgique and The Remnant are writing about the rumored, still rumored, document by which restrictions would be reasserted over Benedict XVI’s – who is still alive – “emancipation proclamation”.
The document supposedly, if The Remnant is correct in what it as heard, could transfer control over the use of the Traditional Roman Rite away from the “Fourth Section” of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith to the Congregation for Divine Worship and Discipline of the Sacraments (CDW). The CDW under-secretary, Aurelio García Macías, a bishop, could theoretically be the one to implement it.
The Remnant speculates that the document would be aimed “to thwart the growth of the Traditional Latin Mass and other sacraments particularly among diocesan clergy.”
It is true. It IS growing among diocesan clergy. Rapidly, in some places.
This is incredibly scary for those who hate the “emancipation proclamation” that is Summorum Pontificum and its amazing effects.
To halt the growth, to halt the fruits, they are willing to suspend the “emancipation proclamation” and return diocesan priests to the slave-state.
If, as it is said to have been in an early draft, the institutes and communities which use the Traditional Rite are removed from the supervision of the CDF and given over to the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life, that would be… not very good. Think, Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate.
This is June, the month dedicated to Most Sacred Heart of Jesus.
I’ve already posted a couple things today about intensifying your prayer life and even performing acts of reparation because of the spread of certain evils in society.
I am asking you to do more now.
By all means read what Paix Liturgique and The Remnant have offered.
The Remnant provides addresses for your respectful letters. Remember: Write something edgy or nasty and you HURT EVERYONE. If you can’t restrain yourself, DON’T write at all. Don’t harm the cause because you want to vent. How selfish would that be. Think about it: “Your Eminence… Holiness… see? This is the kind of letter these people are sending! These are the sort of people who want to overturn Vatican II. See how nasty and disrespectful they are?”
And KEEP WORKING. Do more. Do not panic. Keep your cool. Get organized and get TLMs established far and wide.
Fathers, do not wait any longer. It’s time. Do NOT let the perfect be the enemy of the good. Get things in gear NOW.
