German Bishop Admits: Tridentine Rite Practically Forbidden

Retired Auxiliary Bishop Klaus Dick, 89, of Cologne, Germany, spoke on Wednesday with Die Tagespost about the Traditional Latin Mass which he also celebrates himself.

Dick notices that the differences between the Traditional Latin Mass and the New Rite (Novus Ordo) are more pronounced than the differences between the Latin Mass and, for instance, the [abolished] Dominican Rite, although these are considered to be two different rites.

Dick claims that the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum was not implemented as intended by Benedict XVI, "In practice the aversion against the form of the old Rite is so strong, that it is not allowed to be celebrated."
