For Him A Roman Chasuble Is a "Crime": Traditionis Custodes Turns Bishop Into Tinpot Dictator

Mayagüez Bishop Ángel Ríos Matos, 64, Porto Rico, published on July 17 a narrow-minded and legalistic decree (below) trying to "prohibit" the Roman Rite by invoking Francis’ Traditionis Custodes.

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.

How long before the diocese of Mayagüez has the same amount of Catholics as an ancient North African diocese? Shouldn’t be long before there is a titular bishop of Mayagüez.

So... when is the SSPX starting a Puerto Rico chapel?

That would be awesome. Currently there is only one Mass offered weekly which shifts between Arecibo (where the huge telescope used to be) and Guaynabo (San Juan area).

Queen Elizabeth I banned the Traditional Latin Mass/ TLM Yet faithful Catholics risked imprisonment, torture and death to attend clandestinely--so Pope St. Pius V excommunicated the Queen.

Hilaire Belloc: “The Catholic Church is an institution I am bound to hold divine. But for unbelievers a proof of its divinity might be found in the fact that no merely human institution conducted with such knavish imbecility would have lasted a fortnight."

Aan geld macht en sex gaat de moderne Rooms Katholieke kerk ten onder. Daarom wordt de Tridentijnse Heilige Mis verboden en de gelovigen die het Universele Tridentijnse Rooms Katholieke geloof belijden vervolgd. De modernisten zijn bang dat de Rooms Katholieke kerk de crisis overleeft en ze weten dat de Tridentijnse Rooms Katholieken de crisis in de Rooms Katholieke kerk overleven. Daarom moeten deze gelovigen vervolgd worden en het liefst uitgeroeid worden. De Rooms Katholieke kristalnacht is begonnen.
