Hungarian Cardinal Erdö’s Supposed Statement on Pope Francis’ Motu Proprio on Traditional Latin Mass is ‘Fake News,’ Says Archdiocese| National Catholic Register

A statement opposing Pope Francis’ recent restriction on the Traditional Latin Mass attributed to Cardinal Péter Erdö, Archbishop of Esztergom-Budapest and primate of Hungary, that was circulating on social media is false, according to a correction released by the archdiocese. The full statement says: “The English language statement on the new motu proprio issued by the supreme pontiff on the use of the Roman Liturgy prior to the Reform of 1970 and attributed to Cardinal Péter Erdő that has been widely diffused on social media outlets earlier today is entirely false.”  “Cardinal Erdő has not issued any statement on this topic whatsoever. The Archdiocese will act according to the specific indications laid out in the papal document. Therefore, we consider the above alleged statement to be fake news and an ill-willed attempt to sow confusion among the faithful.”
