Attack The Traditional Latin Mass, Attack Life And Civilization Itself

"I believe that were it not for Holy Mass, at this moment the world would be in the abyss, unable to bear up under the mighty load of its iniquities."  St Leonard of Port Maurice

"It is easier for the world to exist without the sun than without the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass." St Padre Pio

Frankly, I'm not at all certain that many Mass-going Catholics appreciate the truths voiced by these two saints (and probably other saints as well).  Otherwise, I really don't see how they could be so blasé regarding the attacks on the Traditional Latin Mass.  If they appreciated the importance of the rituals, genuflections, use of the sacred language of Latin, etc, they wouldn't be so careless and sloppy regarding the Novus Ordo Mass, let alone the Traditional Latin Mass.

One class of people do understand the importance of the Mass as laid out by Pope St. Pius V in Quo Primum.  That is, those who are working tirelessly to dismantle the Sacraments, Doctrines and other aspects of the Church's patrimony.  It is the progressive clerics (and/or their puppet-string pullers) as they seek to bring about this "great reset" and the resulting "new world order".

I believe that Desiderio Desideravi was released to stymie the graces flowing from the Traditional Latin Mass.  There can be no other reason for the vindictiveness that lies in every word in that document.  Even the Washington Post, no bastion of tradition and conservatism, was taken aback by the harshness in which Cardinal Gregory is implementing this deadly directive.

One Peter Five published a series of articles by Jose Ureta, who analyzed DD.  He noted that it was a step in the same direction initiated in Vatican II, where there was less focus on the Passion and Death of Our Lord in favor of the Resurrection.  It doesn't take much of a theology degree to understand how that minimalizes the harm done by sin.  One obvious consequence is the mindset that sin is seen as something that need not be avoided - a complete departure from past - and correct - understandings of sin.  It also reduces the importance of the priest as "alter Christus" and overly exalts the role of the laity.

Recall the principle "lex orandi, lex credendi, lex vivendi".  Recall also that the Mass is the most sublime worship we offer God, and that the Eucharist is the Source and Summit of our Faith.  The anti-God forces know what they are doing when they attack the Mass of the Ages.  It's high time faithful Catholics woke up and faced the truth so they can act accordingly.

  1. The mask is off, the agenda is crystal clear. Crush the Traditional Latin Mass, advance modernism and relativism, and work to implement the one-world-Church of ecumenism. I recently watched Catholics (renamed Conflict) with Trevor Howard and Martin Sheen (1967 I believe). It is so prophetic! New norms for absolution in Confession is also in the dock. How will that come down, I wonder? The war is heating up. Here in Front Royal the local pastor got personal against the SSPX chapel. Meanwhile, at the chapel we have peaceful silence, but it's clear the congregation is growing. That only increase since the "permission" for the TLM has an expiration date not to mention a ban on the TLM for the holiest days of the year. Anyone with eyes to see knows the pope's claim that he is fostering "unity" is a damnable lie. He has segregated those who adhere most closely to Church doctrine. I didn't say they are holier, but most of them believe what the Church teaches which cannot be said of Catholics in general. You will not find Nancy Pelosi, Tim Kaine and Joe Biden and other heretical Catholics in a TLM parish.
