    LOL. Hypocrisy and double standards have never been a problem for PF – at least not when practised by him. Damian Thompson on the papacy of Bergoglio:

    He’s got a thing about latin too.

    Pope Francis Closes Loopholes to Cement Ban on Traditional Latin Mass (19 Dec)

    Latin Mass Society: Pope’s Crackdown on Traditionalists Does ‘Immediate Severe Harm’ to Church Unity (20 Dec)

    I really don’t understand why he wants to be so rigid on this when it seems so unnecessary. My view is if Catholic people wish to use the Latin Mass then that should be their choice. God’s Word in Latin is the same as it is in English, Greek and Hebrew, it’s only we humans who have towering problems with languages.

    It doesn’t really matter, Bruce.
    The traditional Mass will live on long after he dies.

    south americans should never be in charge of anything. Their mind works differently to rational people.

    From an interview with Dr Peter Kwasniewski:

    Unquestionably the Latin Mass is here to stay. If the progressives couldn’t stamp it out in the 1970s, when there were far fewer traditionalists and the Church’s hierarchy, especially the pope, could still expect and sometimes even receive prompt assent to their decrees, however absurd, then there’s not even a remote chance of the now dinosaurian nostalgics and their ambitious hangers-on getting away with it in the 2020s. As a matter of fact, TC has re-energized a traditionalist movement that was in danger of a bit of complacency and comfort. Things had become almost easy in some places, and now suddenly it’s “back to the seventies” where you have to fight for what you love. That’s the secret of persecution: it makes the Church stronger. The same will be true here……

    In my 25+ years of writing on these subjects, I’ve never witnessed such an intense reaction and resolve as I see now. It’s not merely that attendance has been steadily climbing at TLMs since Covid hit, and again since July 16. It’s also that TC was like a sudden warning signal. So many priests and laymen have contacted me to say that they are learning how to say or serve or sing for the old Mass, adding it quietly to their parish or personal schedule, ramping it up, spreading it, doing it secretly—whatever it takes to outwit and outlast our enemies. No doubt about it: TC will backfire with historic thunder.

    It doesn’t help TC that it emanated from a Vatican notorious for theological modernism and moral corruption. It bears the stench of its origins. The very fact that it’s this pope at this time trying to stomp out the TLM makes it easy for every right-thinking Catholic to see what’s really up. The Latin Mass is the emblem and embodiment of all that the new post-conciliar version of Catholicism hates and must destroy…….

    From an interview with Henry Sire, author of The Dictator Pope:

    You have studied with the Jesuits. Does this help to understand Francis?
    Only in the sense that I have witnessed the collapse and corruption of the Society since the Second Vatican Council, and Bergoglio offers a classic case of it. It has been more of a help that I am half-Spanish and I therefore have an understanding of a Hispanic culture such as Argentina’s.

    A Hispanic culture?
    Bergoglio is a classic product of Argentinian society, which is a caricature of Spanish society with special elements such as Peronism added. Essentially, those who try to understand Bergoglio from the standards of Anglo-Saxon or Germanic decency and correct conduct find themselves struggling to grasp the culture of unprincipled selfishness which for an Argentinian is just part of the climate……

    Peronist or just opportunist? In recent history, how many priests have been named bishops for their unwavering fidelity to the Faith? Isn’t opportunism the first requirement for those who want to climb the career ladder in the Church?
    There are some exceptions: Cardinals Sarah and Burke, for example. But what distinguishes Bergoglio is that opportunism is part of an elaborate political culture in which he was brought up, and the basis for a cunning and manipulative career, in which most bishops don’t match him.

    Francis is an Italo-Argentinean who runs the Vatican in an Italio-Argentinean way with lots of minions and yes-men around him. Should the Church become more Anglo-Saxon?
    I am not very Anglo-Saxon myself and I wouldn’t like to put the case in national terms. It has certainly been a catastrophe for the Church to have as pope the representative of a very bad political culture such as Argentina’s. The first step towards reform will be to escape from that legacy.

    What is this political culture?
    Dictatorial methods, obviously. Other elements in the culture include a loud-mouthed populism which enables a politician to claim that he is supporting the people when in fact he does nothing for them, and a hereditary anti-Yankeeism which has been the motivation for Francis’s disastrous sell-out to the Chinese Communist government.

    Francis loves to hide behind contradictions, for instances, by calling abortion a hit job and by calling the abortionist Emma Bonino one of the “great Italians.” What “tactic” is behind this?
    This again is typical Peronism, throwing out contradictory signals to opposite parties. An Argentinian would understand it perfectly well, but to the rest of the world it appears incomprehensible.

    Belated thanks, Ivan. Just enjoyed reading those pieces.
