As much as Summorum Pontificum was an act of the Holy Spirit for the good and the peace of the Church and faithful, this work by Bergoglio is of Satan and it is proven in the opening line.

Even its very title mocks the faithful - "Traditiones Custodes."

In its very first sentence it mocks, God the HOLY SPIRIT as it charges that God can change His Mind, that He can act in charity one day and in hatred and disdain the next. It claims the power of the HOLY SPIRIT to destroy what the HOLY SPIRIT created.

The HOLY SPIRIT cannot contradict HIMSELF any more than when Our Blessed LORD asked rhetorically, "can Satan cast out Satan?”

It is blasphemy.

It is from the pits of Hell.

Make no mistake. This is an evil document. It was promulgated by evil men. Lest you call me "judgemental" and attack me for this, you need to use some logic. Nothing in this document is good. It does not build up. It tears down and causes distress to millions of faithful adherents to the Catholic Faith. It is cruel and the man who issued it, is cruel.

It is the death rattle, not just of the man whose name it bears but of a regime. They will not win this, they cannot win this. They have set themselves against God.

This is not 1965, let alone 1969. I am not my parents and I am not my grandparents and neither are you, dear reader.





Guardians of the tradition, the bishops in communion with the Bishop of Rome constitute the visible principle and foundation of the unity of their particular Churches.[1] Under the guidance of the Holy Spirit, through the proclamation of the Gospel and by means of the celebration of the Eucharist, they govern the particular Churches entrusted to them.[2]

In order to promote the concord and unity of the Church, with paternal solicitude towards those who in any region adhere to liturgical forms antecedent to the reform willed by the Vatican Council II, my Venerable Predecessors, Saint John Paul II and Benedict XVI, granted and regulated the faculty to use the Roman Missal edited by John XXIII in 1962.[3] In this way they intended “to facilitate the ecclesial communion of those Catholics who feel attached to some earlier liturgical forms” and not to others.[4]

In line with the initiative of my Venerable Predecessor Benedict XVI to invite the bishops to assess the application of the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum three years after its publication, the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith carried out a detailed consultation of the bishops in 2020. The results have been carefully considered in the light of experience that has matured during these years.

At this time, having considered the wishes expressed by the episcopate and having heard the opinion of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, I now desire, with this Apostolic Letter, to press on ever more in the constant search for ecclesial communion. Therefore, I have considered it appropriate to establish the following:

Art. 1. The liturgical books promulgated by Saint Paul VI and Saint John Paul II, in conformity with the decrees of Vatican Council II, are the unique expression of the lex orandi of the Roman Rite.

Art. 2. It belongs to the diocesan bishop, as moderator, promoter, and guardian of the whole liturgical life of the particular Church entrusted to him,[5] to regulate the liturgical celebrations of his diocese.[6] Therefore, it is his exclusive competence to authorize the use of the 1962 Roman Missal in his diocese, according to the guidelines of the Apostolic See.

Art. 3. The bishop of the diocese in which until now there exist one or more groups that celebrate according to the Missal antecedent to the reform of 1970:

§ 1. is to determine that these groups do not deny the validity and the legitimacy of the liturgical reform, dictated by Vatican Council II and the Magisterium of the Supreme Pontiffs;

§ 2. is to designate one or more locations where the faithful adherents of these groups may gather for the eucharistic celebration (not however in the parochial churches and without the erection of new personal parishes);

§ 3. to establish at the designated locations the days on which eucharistic celebrations are permitted using the Roman Missal promulgated by Saint John XXIII in 1962.[7] In these celebrations the readings are proclaimed in the vernacular language, using translations of the Sacred Scripture approved for liturgical use by the respective Episcopal Conferences;

§ 4. to appoint a priest who, as delegate of the bishop, is entrusted with these celebrations and with the pastoral care of these groups of the faithful. This priest should be suited for this responsibility, skilled in the use of the Missale Romanum antecedent to the reform of 1970, possess a knowledge of the Latin language sufficient for a thorough comprehension of the rubrics and liturgical texts, and be animated by a lively pastoral charity and by a sense of ecclesial communion. This priest should have at heart not only the correct celebration of the liturgy, but also the pastoral and spiritual care of the faithful;

§ 5. to proceed suitably to verify that the parishes canonically erected for the benefit of these faithful are effective for their spiritual growth, and to determine whether or not to retain them;

§ 6. to take care not to authorize the establishment of new groups.

Art. 4. Priests ordained after the publication of the present Motu Proprio, who wish to celebrate using the Missale Romanum of 1962, should submit a formal request to the diocesan Bishop who shall consult the Apostolic See before granting this authorization.

Art. 5. Priests who already celebrate according to the Missale Romanum of 1962 should request from the diocesan Bishop the authorization to continue to enjoy this faculty.

Art. 6. Institutes of consecrated life and Societies of apostolic life, erected by the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei, fall under the competence of the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies for Apostolic Life.

Art. 7. The Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments and the Congregation for Institutes of Consecrated Life and Societies of Apostolic Life, for matters of their particular competence, exercise the authority of the Holy See with respect to the observance of these provisions.

Art. 8. Previous norms, instructions, permissions, and customs that do not conform to the provisions of the present Motu Proprio are abrogated.

Everything that I have declared in this Apostolic Letter in the form of Motu Proprio, I order to be observed in all its parts, anything else to the contrary notwithstanding, even if worthy of particular mention, and I establish that it be promulgated by way of publication in “L’Osservatore Romano”, entering immediately in force and, subsequently, that it be published in the official Commentary of the Holy See, Acta Apostolicae Sedis.

Given at Rome, at Saint John Lateran, on 16 July 2021, the liturgical Memorial of Our Lady of Mount Carmel, in the ninth year of Our Pontificate.

Francis has worked very hard to destroy as much of Catholic Culture and I include the TLM as he possibly can.

I didn't like him from the beginning and it turns out that it was for good reasons.

Amateur Brain Surgeon said...

No real Catholic can be surprised that the 60s Synod is being used as a cat's paw to separate the shadow Church from Tradition and owing to the truth that it is through the Real Mass that Tradition was learnt by Pam and Pat Pew Dweller, it makes sense for the revolutionary Bergoglio to kill it as part of a revolutionary rear guard action.

Heaping scorn upon Tradition and heaping praise on novelties is what revolutionaries do. The idea that the Real Mass and The Lil' Licit Liturgy are the same rite is an idea so inane only an expert could embrace it.

Off the top of one's head it is difficult to identify a better recruiter for the SSPX than Bergoglio.

This Motu Propio must be ignored as it comes not from PBXVI, the sitting Pope, but by an Usurper, Apostate, Heretic, Idolater, Blasphemer, Marxist, Modernist who hates Catholicism, sold 7M Chinese Catholics to the CCP for undisclosed amounts of $s p.a., publicly venerated Pachamama & other Amazonian idols within the Vatican walls, placing one of them on the altar while celebrating the final Mass of the Amaxonian Synod. He & his demonic henchmen who spend undisclosed amounts of our donations on occult black masses, homo - erotic parties & money laundering are NWO Great Reset supporters & don't give a fig for the Triune Deity, the OHCA Church founded by the Second Person of the Most Holy Trinity or His true followers. Satan's 100 year rule must be coming to an end - let's pray it does very soon along with the NWO tyranny which is interlinked.

@Ana Milan - you forgot the mic drop:) That was great.

Just an FYI to all who cannot understand why the courts always seem to rule in favor of the bishops in the US ,rather than taking up the cause of a good priest who has been persecuted.
#1 the government in the USA will never interfere with the private business organizational policies of an established religion.

So, as long as the action is not deemed criminal i.e. molestation of an under aged child, and despite the action of libel in a he said she said scenario,
the Bishop ( who is angry a priest convinced a pedophile or ephebophile sodomite to turn himself in) ,can fire and or discipline the righteous priest in anyway he sees fit .

#2 The priest's ONLY recourse is to the CDF whose gears move very slowly and almost always turn in favor of the clerical sexual abuse coverup agendas of the Bishops.

The Modernismi Custodes will be rolling in orgasmic rapture over this. (Sadly, so will some in the traditional communities who love using the slur "semi-trads".) This can only increase the attendance at chapels outside of Francis his bishops. Bring it on....

I am a religious order priest and I write as anonymous because now we have to go underground. Us traditionalists must be smart. Priests must fly under the radar so as to administer the sacraments the best that they can. Keep calm we must keep our head in a moment of crisis.

Right now lets not do anything stupid. Francis has decided not to accept the mission of be Peter. He has chosen not to feed the sheep.

Dear Father,

You are so correct and thank you for commenting here.

I have been anticipating this, but clearly this is a little worse than I thought. The issue of the language of the readings are only surpassed by the “parochial” matter.

Sadly this is an absolute crime against the faithful. Worth it as a crime against God himself. If you are comfortable you can write me in confidence at

The false church strikes out against holiness again and on Our Lady's feast day. I go to a novus ordo parish but we have the TLM on Sundays. My priest said we will NOT lose this Mass. He will offer it on a mass rock if he has to. But as long as we have the present bishops, we should be safe. Seminarians learning the TLM are in the cross hairs. And no more institutes for the TLM. May the good Lord grant us a saintly pope to undo all these machinations of the bishop of Rome.

Johnno said...

It is X Sunday of X Time, 20XX, and there is NO LATIN MASS FOR YOU!

Or any Mass for anyone else as far as any AntiPope of Covid is concerned.

And you will need your Vaxx Passport to receive any of the sacraments! Ah, you would start to miss the days of the Kirchensteuer, were it not the case that we are still doing that anyway!

Warren said...

You just accused the Pope of evil.

Let's just wonder then, why such spiritual fruit as yours needs to be culled.

Vox Cantoris said...

I did not use that word, but I shall.

It was an evil act.

It was demonic.

It was evil.

So are you for your comment.

Vox Cantoris said...


Yes, he is evil as are you!

Keep your petty arguments out of MY COM box. You’ve been warned.
