One of the main requierements of the II. Vatican council is supporting the traditional liturgy. In the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, art. 4, it is said: „that holy Mother Church holds all lawfully acknowledged rites to be of equal right and dignity; that she wishes to preserve them in the future and to foster them in every way. The Council also desires that, where necessary, the rites be revised carefully in the light of sound tradition, and that they be given new vigor to meet the circumstances and needs of modern times. “ How many of 2147 bishops who voted for the ratification of this constitution did cite during the institution of Novus Ordo missal of Paul VI. this text and therefore did give the example of preserving and fostering the roman rite, which was acknoledged in the past?
Annuario pontifico from 2020 does not cite the former titles of the pope which are Vicar of Jesus Christ, Successor of the Prince of the Apostles, Supreme Pontiff, Primate of Italy, Archbishop and Metropolitan of the Roman Province, Servant of the servants of God. Motu proprio Tradicionis custodes from 16th July 2021 is signed by „Francis“ and it suspects Bergolio. He makes a reference to II. Vatican council only in general. Yet his requierements are totally opposite to the article 4 from the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy.
We can read in his letter to the bishops accompanying Tradicionis custodes: „I take comfort in this decision from the fact that, after the Council of Trent, St. Pius V also abrogated all the rites that could not claim a proven antiquity, establishing for the whole Latin Church a single Missale Romanum.“
St. Pius V. writes in Quo primum: „unless approval of the practice of saying Mass differently was given at the very time of the institution and confirmation of the church by Apostolic See at least 200 years ago, or unless there has prevailed a custom of a similar kind which has been continuously followed for a period of not less than 200 years, in which most cases We in no wise rescind their above-mentioned prerogative or custom. However, if this Missal, which we have seen fit to publish, be more agreeable to these latter, We grant them permission to celebrate Mass according to its rite, provided they have the consent of their bishop or prelate or of their whole Chapter, everything else to the contrary notwithstanding.
All other of the churches referred to above, however, are hereby denied the use of other missals, which are to be discontinued entirely and absolutely; whereas, by this present Constitution, which will be valid henceforth, now, and forever, We order and enjoin that nothing must be added to Our recently published Missal, nothing omitted from it, nor anything whatsoever be changed within it under the penalty of Our displeasure.“ NOM (Novus Ordo Missae) liturgy is not celebrated more than 200 years and thus it should not be according Pius V. entitled to continue after 50 years. The liturgy according the missal of Pius V. is more than twice 200 years old and thus it would be permitted. Making the reference to Pius V. and to II. Vatican results here in making completely the opposite decision, what was decided by both.
In the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, art. 54, it is stated: „Nevertheless steps should be taken so that the faithful may also be able to say or to sing together in Latin those parts of the Ordinary of the Mass which pertain to them.“
The participants of the traditional liturgy merit reward for fullfilling these words. The participants of the NOM liturgy mostly do not fulfill this. With what punishments are they threatened? Was there anyone ever because of this punished? Has someone already apologized for the hereticall claim, that the council abolished the latin language?
One can only hope, that there comes about the correction soon, and that the words of the apostle Paul would not come true (Eph 6,4): “Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger.”
