|Jorge Card. Bergoglio breaks the Law of the Church and washes women's feet in Buenos Aires|
The picture above is when Francis was just plain out Cardinal Jorge. This means that the Cardinal Archbishop of Buenos Aires broke liturgical law and thus, Canon Law. When he became Pope, and chose to repeat this as Pope the last three years, he had the right to dispense with the Law. As Cardinal, and whenever he did this before becoming a Cardinal, he did not have the right. This means that the current Bishop of Rome did not respect the Law of the Church in these matters before. If he intentionally broke the law of the Church, was that, objectively speaking, a mortal sin? He surely knew what the was, he surely knew better. Hence, he has no respect for Law, but yet, he has changed the Law at his own whim. He has told all of this for well over a year now, that he hates Law, even as recently as Monday morning and then he changes it. He hates it but he knows it is necessary, yet, he would like no law. We have as Pope, an anarchist!
You and I, however; we are the dissenters. We are the sinners of course. We are those not open to his "god of surprises." We are those nasty, trads who bite!
Does he have the moral authority? NO, not in a million years. Not in a lifetime does he have the moral authority to do this. He has changed the whole meaning of the Rite!
What kind of Pope is this? I, I, I! Who is this Argentine Peronist!
Is it true then? Did he really stand up and shout that he would strip the 13 Cardinals of their red hats? "Full power has been given to me, I run the show around here?" Did he say it? Because if he didn't, he sure acts like it!
No Wojtyla, No Ratzinger would ever have gotten away with this. Nor would they have tried.
The Washing of the Feet was not part of the Mass until 1955. It was a rite reserved to Cathedrals, Monasteries, Seminaries and Religious Houses. When it was put after the homily on Holy Thursday in the "Reformed Holy Week" by Pius XII at the urging of Annibale Bugnini and other modernists hidden away in the liturgical offices of the Vatican, it was the first time in 2000 years that the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass was interrupted for a para-liturgy. It was then and remains in the traditional Missal and in the modernist Missal, an "option." It does not have to be done. It can be optioned out! So, option it out! The decree only changes what it expressly seeks to change.
It does not apply to the traditional Mass.
Where is the consultation with the "brother bishops?" Where is the "collegiality?" This Pope has become a dictator, an absolutist, a Peronist!
Here is the Latin Decree from the Congregation, no doubt, forced upon them:To my Venerable Brother Cardinal ROBERT SARAHPrefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the SacramentsYour Eminence,As I had the opportunity to tell you, for some time I have been reflecting on the rite of "washing of the feet," contained in the Liturgy of the Mass of the Lord's Supper, in order to improve the methods of implementation, to express the full meaning of the gesture made by Jesus at the Last Supper, his gift of himself "to the end" for the salvation of the world, his boundless charity. After careful consideration, I came to the decision to make a change in the rubrics of the Roman Missal.Therefore I order to appear a change to the heading under which the people chosen to receive the washing of the feet should be men or boys, so that from now on the Church's Pastors can choose the participants in the rite among all the members of the People's God. It also recommends that the chosen is provided an adequate explanation of the meaning of the rite itself.Grateful for the valuable service of this dicastery, I assure you, Your Eminence, to the Secretary and to all the staff of my remembrance in prayer and, formulating my best wishes for Christmas, I send to all my Apostolic Blessing.From the Vatican, 20 December 2014FRANCISCUS
In Missa in Cena Domini, post lectionem Evangelii secundum Ioannem, ad humilitatem et caritatem Christi erga discipulos suos quasi scaenice demonstrandam, instauratio Hebdomadae sanctae, decreto Maxima Redemptionis nostrae mysteria (die 30 Novembris 1955), dedit facultatem, ubi ratio pastoralis id suadebatur, lotionem pedum agendi duodecim virorum.A non-official English translation.
Qui ritus, in liturgia romana, traditus fuerat nomine Mandatum Domini de caritate fraterna ex Iesu verbis (cfr Io 13, 34), quae Antiphona in celebratione resonabant.
Episcopi et presbyteri hoc ritu agentes intime invitantur ad sese conformandum Christo qui «non venit ministrari sed ministrare» (Mt 20, 28) et, caritate «in finem» (Io 13, 1) compulsus, vitam dare pro totius generis humani salute.
Ut participantibus haec plena significatio ritus exprimatur bonum visum est Summo Pontifici Francisco normam variare quae in rubricis Missalis Romani (p. 300 n. 11) legitur: «Viri selecti deducuntur a ministris…», quae idcirco sequenti modo mutari debet: «Qui selecti sunt ex populo Dei deducuntur a ministris…» (et consequenter in Caeremoniali Episcoporum n. 301 et n. 299 b: «sedes pro designatis»), ita ut pastores seligere possint parvum fidelium coetum ad repraesentandam varietatem et unitatem uniuscuiusque portionis populi Dei. Qui coetus constare potest ex viris et mulieribus, et convenienter ex iuvenibus et senibus, sanis et aegrotis, clericis, consecratis, laicis.
Quam innovationem haec Congregatio de Cultu Divino et Disciplina Sacramentorum, vigore facultatum a Summo Pontifice tributarum, in libris liturgicis Ritus Romani inducit, pastores admonens de proprio munere instituendi, apta manuductione, sive fideles qui seliguntur, sive alios ut ritui participent scienter, actuose et fructuose.
Contrariis quibuslibet minime obstantibus.
Ex aedibus Congregationis de Cultu Divino et Disciplina Sacramentorum, die 6 mensis Ianuarii anno 2016, in sollemnitate Epiphaniae Domini.In the Mass, the Lord's Supper, after the reading of the Gospel according to John, in order to demonstrate the humility and the love of Christ's love for his disciples, and as it were, dramatically, for the establishment of Holy Week and the decree of the greatest mysteries of our Redemption (the day 30 of November, 1955), given us the possibility, where he was advised to give a pastoral reason, the washing, the feet of twelve men of action.
This rite is celebrated, in the Roman rite, and delivered to the words of Jesus had been the name of the Lord's commandment of brotherly love (cf. Jn 13, 34), which is echoed in the celebration of Antiphon.
Intimately thanks to the conformation of this rite are invited to the bishops and priests were Christ himself who "came not to be served but to serve" (Mt 20, 28) You know, in love "to the end" (Jn 13: 1), driven by, and the life I gave him for the salvation of the whole human race.
In order to take part in the rite are full of the meaning of an expression to change it in accordance with a good view of what is in the rubrics of the Roman Missal, the Sovereign Pontiff Francisco (p. 300 n. 11) we read: "Husbands selected the boys are taken by the ministers of ...», which therefore ought to be changed in the following manner: "For those who are selected the boys are taken by the ministers of the people of God ... "(and, consequently, in the Ceremonial of Bishops, n. 301 and n. 299 b:" seats for the designated »), so that they can be to select a small group of the faithful in the representation of the variety and the unity of the pastors of each portion of the people of God. And they can be seen from a group of men and women, and was suitable for the young and old, the healthy and the infirm, the clergy, the consecrated life, lay associations.
How the renewal of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, the strength of the faculties by the Supreme Pontiff, in the liturgical books of the Roman Rite and makes the gift of shepherds to train in mind about one's own, a suitable guidance, whether they be believers who are selected to participate in or to any other, that the rite of the conscious, active, and fruitful .
To the contrary notwithstanding.
From the offices of the Congregation for the Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, the 6th day of the month of January in the year 2016, on the Solemnity of the Epiphany of the Lord.
In accord with Benedict XVI, Universae Ecclesiae, this does not apply to the Roman Missal of 1962 as nothing coming after 1962 which conflicts, is licit. For example, Girl Altar Boys, Extraordinary Ministers of Holy Communion, Anticipated Sunday liturgy. Should Jorge Bergoglio abrogate U.E., there will be literal hell to pay.
