For Him A Roman Chasuble Is a "Crime": Traditionis Custodes Turns Bishop Into Tinpot Dictator
Appointed a bishop in May 2020, Ríos alleges that there are currently no groups in his diocese who ask for the Roman Rite and thus "forbids" its celebration in his diocese. No priest and no place shall be designed for it.
He further orders that “every priest” in his diocese must preside the Novus Ordo “even when celebrating in private and without people.”
Finally, he "forbids" the usage of Roman chasubles, linen tablecloths, chalice covers, maniples, birettas and other typical Roman Rite features. Evidently, Ríos suffers from feelings of omnipotence, a syndrome often caused by an episcopal consecration.
Therefore, the decree cannot be taken seriously all the more that it a cautionary example of rigidity which Francis has so often slammed.
