Motu Proprio Held Up By Process Of Kosher Certification

Another extremely senior clerical source tells me that the motu proprio is still coming, but that, as other blogs have reported, it might in fact not be this month after all. It appears the Pope, concerned by the German protest and holding his compatriot bishops close tohis heart, wanted to see if the protest would take on a more international flavour. Of particular concern is the Good Friday prayer for the conversion of Jews. Cardinal Kasper, of course, President of the Council of Christians and Jews, will have objected strongly to this. This prayer, rightly, is expected to come out. In its place might go one of the many available traditional prayers emphasising the Catholic Church's 'unique' role in salvation.

Full article:

EDITOR'S NOTE: I would warn those who have a strong attachment to the traditional liturgy and rubrics that it is the Gospel, not the liturgy, which is the primary target of the rabbis. This is not to say that the actual text of the Gospel could be altered as cavalierly as the liturgy has been, but the interpretation certainly can be, as it has already been.

If the Motu Proprio is promulgated, I expect there to be many traditional Latin Masses with the smell of incense strong in the air, flawlessly executed rubrics, perfectly authentic Roman vestments, beautifully performed hymns and chants, during which one will hear sermons of rabbi-approved theology. This is nothing to celebrate. It's diabolical, and I've seen examples of this taking place already. What's worse, I see very little from those who hear these camel-sized errors that would indicate any suspicion on their part.

The theology of a priest dressed as a clown will not be taken seriously by conservative minded people. Theology preached by a pious looking priest in traditional vestments, on the other hand, is more likely to be accepted at face value.

Keep your eyes on the Gospel. The Motu Proprio is likely a bone intended to create the impression of a step taken forward towards the restoration of orthodoxy. The ten steps backwards will come at the 2008 synod when Catholic scriptural exegesis will be subjected to the next stage of the kosher certification process.

A hearty, AMEN, to the comments provided by Maurice in this post.

It seems Latin-olatry is becoming the new religion of the "orthodox" in Roman circles. I think the Traditional Rite should be used(English or Latin) for the sake of its purity and simplicity, not for its beauty or preciousness. The idea is to pray not to "ooh and ahh."

As Maurice says and I concure, the Holy Scriptures (and secondarily the Ecumenical Councils and the teachings of the Fathers and Doctors) is the real target of the Judaics. There are many Mass rites that are valid and licit; they can come in all the languages known to man.

A lot of energy is being excercised by the Institute of Christ the King (and its oracles: Rorate Caeli
The New Liturgical Movement
and Pius X (including the nutty sedevacantists) to focus all the attention on the Latin Rite.

I agree with the previous writer in some instances but the gratuitous slur against sedevacantists is needlessly divisive (I am not sedevacantist). Stick to the topic and don't slag off others.

Sedevacantists have warned more than others that the "Pope" is making an empty gesture with his alleged "Motu Proprio."

Now back to the topic: Maurice Pinay is on target when he points to the usefulness of the traditional liturgy to the change-agents, with their cooptation mentality. They couldn't stamp it out (their preferred desire) so they take it over so they can use the pulpits at the Latin Mass to inject Judeo-modernism.

It must be asked, has the SSPX or any other Latin Mass group taken the lead in immunizing us against Talmudism and neocon Republicans who use "family values" as a smokescreen for pursuing the will of the rabbis? I don't think so and as a result we are ill-prepared to defend against this latest Vatican trick.

I just read this and would encourage others to read as well:

Mr. Steele is not a "Catholic" but he has some tremendous (traditionaly Catholic) insights.

I abhor racialist theology. Whether it comes from the Talmud or from Mr. Steele, it's the same error.

Whether Steele is a racist or not; I don't know? It is still a worthwhile article.
