- TRADITIONIS CUSTODES
The reply sent by Msgr. Roche’s to Cardinal Nichols at his request for clarification on aspects of Pope Francis’s motu proprio on the Latin Mass, especially for the administration of the sacraments, has been made public. The prefect for Divine Worship considers the ancient rite contrary to "ecclesiology", contradicting Benedict XVI who emphasized its dignity and made clear that the 1962 Missal has never been repealed. Roche even forgets the 1971 indult, indicating the way Vetus Ordo will ultimately die a death.
