Several years ago, when Francis erroneously stated that the death penalty is inadmissible, I voiced my suspicion that he was using the topic of the death penalty as a "trial balloon", as it were, to see how far he could push Catholics into believing that Church teaching could be mutated into something foreign to centuries of Tradition. See here and here (particularly the second paragraph). Sadly I am proven correct.
Cardinal Arthur Roche, leader of the Vatican's Dicastery for Divine Worship and Discipline of the Sacraments, justifies the animus against the Traditional Latin Mass by erroneously claiming that "the theology of the Church has changed."
That statement itself is blatant heresy. It is impossible for theology to change simply because God and His Word cannot change. God is eternal and immutable. One wonders if he flunked basic philosophy in his seminary days (along with quite a few other classes). One also wonders if the "theology has changed", who did the "changing"?
Roche went on to claim, "it is not only the priest who celebrates the liturgy but also those who are baptized with him, and that is an enormous statement to make." Now where have we seen that kind of thinking just recently? Oh, yes! It's in that 31-page tome that sets forth the case for the idolatrous Mayan "mass" of which I wrote two days ago. This is all a coordinated attack on the Tradition and Sacraments given to us by Our Lord, with a lot of ground work being laid when the liceity of the death penalty being called into question.
Below is tonight's episode of the Anchor Team. Listen to the Hichborns unpack Roche and the Mayan Mess (spelling deliberate). Below that is a song written by a lady from the Arlington Mass Society. The lyrics are particularly relevant to Roche and anyone else who dares tinker with the Mass of the Ages. Let them take warning.
Find a Traditional Latin Mass and attend it. At least give it a try.
