The Vetus Ordo is not going away.
I received this from a reader:
Spain is a country where traditionalism is virtually unknown. The left is obviously virulent, and under the influence of the Opus Dei, the right is solidly ostrich-like for Vatican II. The most conservative bishop, Munilla, has always flatly refused to allow the TLM even before Traditionis Custodes. Even the SSPX hasn’t established a proper priory.
Last year a group of traditionalists organised a pilgrimage to Covadonga, scene of the opening of the Reconquista, with the aim of reconquering Spain for the Tridentine Mass. Priests who do not know the Mass are especially encouraged to come, as training for Priests and Servers is provided. Over 600 people came, despite most of the venues reneging on their promises and closing their doors in the wake of Trad Cust.
This year, numbers have more than doubled!
I imagine you would like to see some photos. No?
