Summorum Pontificum and Obedience to the Pope

Unfortunately, Cardinal Rosales signed the document that openly and brazenly defied the Pope on what the Holy Father wrote in the Motu Propio.  He was quickly reprimanded by Cardinal Hoyos of the Ecclesia Dei Commission for this.

But the cardinal was not the one who wrote this actually. The signature "That in all things, God may be glorified." is a give away.

The link to the archdiocese's directive was immediately pulled down and what was left is that Q&A format with that obvious signature of that liturgist who hates anything that he cannot inculturate.

Remember that a cardinal wears red because he is ready to shed his blood for the Faith and that we wears a special ring as a sign of his obedience to the Holy Father.

What happens to those things now?  Gone the drain because he does not like the Traditional Form?

Was it really the cardinal or a liturgist who just can't get over the fact?

My advise:  Just obey who is sitting on Peter's chair and get it over with!


No more Novus Ordo Mass in fifty years!


No more of inculturation!

And seminarians required to learn the Traditional Form!


Still no more room for inculturation!

What, then, I pray tell, happens with all the liturgical research and competency in pastoral liturgy?

Don't get me wrong.

I attend and assist at the Novus Ordo Mass.

But I still prefer the Traditional Mass.

Nuff said.

  1. Thanks to the Summorum Pontificum of Pope Benedict XVI, more Catholics will be able to appreciate the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite, a uniquely Catholic heritage that needs to be preserved.

    I attended my first TLM in the Parish of Divine Mercy in Sikatuna and I want to tell you that it was marvelous. Way better than the Novus Ordo Masses I always attend. Many of them are full of distractions....Fr. Jojo Zerrudo has done a great job in celebrating this Mass. See, Latin is not so scary after all. It can be learned once you put your heart to it. :)

    Pax Domini sit semper vobiscum! ;)
