Before anything else. Prelates cannot persecute the Mass. They cannot persecute a book. They cannot persecute a Rite. They persecution PEOPLE who want Holy Mass through a book, the Missale Romanum, of the Roman Rite in the Vetus Ordo.
They persecution the people.
I received this notice:
Please join us for a Rosary Rally outside of Holy Name Cathedral on Sunday, February 6th from 11AM – Noon.
We will have a banner – please bring your Rosaries, and feel free to bring signs.
We will be praying for the full freedom of the Latin Mass in the Archdiocese of Chicago, especially in light of the Cardinal’s recent restrictions.
Our message to Cardinal Cupich will be: Your Eminence, why are you persecuting faithful Catholics? As Catholics in Chicago and the surrounding area, we simply desire to pray and attend the Holy Mass in the way that so many saints have done. Why are you depriving us of the Traditional Latin Mass on the first Sunday of every month? What have we done to deserve such a punishment?
This event is being organized by ordinary Catholics who love Holy Mother Church and the Traditional Latin Mass. Facebook event page: https://fb.me/e/1Zz7ItQsS
If you are anywhere near Chicago, or you can go there, GO!
Meanwhile, commit to these simple things each day for
- the softening of hearts of those interpreting Traditionis custodes (bishops, Roman Congregation officials);
- the overturning of, or reversal of, or major amendment of Traditionis custodes.
Namely, commit to
- recite the beautiful and powerful Memorare prayer DAILY;
- make an act of physical or material penance for the two intentions ONCE A WEEK.
This is what I call being a “Custos Traditionis… a Guardian of Tradition”, in contrast to what bishops are being called to become, “Jailers of Tradition… Traditionis Custodes”.
