Say what you will about Francis, at least he has integrity | AKA Catholic

Archbishop Jerome Lloyd OSJVPosted by

In his letter to bishops, Francis claimed that he was moved to issue his Motu Proprio because adherence to the Traditional Latin Mass is “often characterized by a rejection not only of the liturgical reform, but of the Vatican Council II itself.”  His Hostileness went on to say: To doubt the Council is to doubt the intentions of those very Fathers who exercised their collegial power in a solemn manner cum Petro et sub Petro in an ecumenical council, and, in the final analysis, to doubt the Holy Spirit himself who guides the Church. Francis is very nearly correct. One may even say that he is demonstrating a higher degree of intellectual honesty than his immediate predecessors, Ratzinger included, each of whom also pledged allegiance to the Almighty Council but were too weak to even attempt to carry out its liturgical wishes as he is.
