Official Communiqué
- To the Confused Catholics of Costa Rica and Abroad -

The purpose of this statement is to present a summarized report of the situation in Costa Rica, particularly in the Archdiocese of San José, in relation to the Mass of Ages, also called the Tridentine Mass, Traditional Latin Mass or Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite.
Una Voce Costa Rica, member of the Foederatio Internationalis Una Voce, a federation with recognition from the Holy See, has been working in recent years for all Catholics in Costa Rica to enjoy what in the letter accompanying the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum of His Holiness Benedict XVI was called "a precious treasure to be preserved " .

Everything indicates an attitude of total hostility towards the TLM among the bishops involved. That is the only explanation for the fact these people were ignored.

I think it obvious now that the bishops are, getting the green light (wink, wink, nudge, nudge) from Rome where our TLM is concerned. They are becoming increasingly emboldened. There is an old motion picture promotional phrase: "Coming to a theater near you". Regarding the suppression of our TLM, I fear the message is increasingly loud: "Coming to a diocese near you." Franciscans of the Immaculate, Fisher/More college, Costa Rica and this is all on top of the middle-fingered resistance that bishops were already doing before Benedict abdicated.
