Authoritarian Cardinal Reiterates His Ban On Roman Mass

Washington Cardinal Gregory reaffirmed in a July 30 letter his decision to prohibit an already approved August 14 Roman Mass scheduled at the National Shrine with Archbishop Thomas Gullickson.

The organiser and funder of this Mass, the Paulus Institute, asked Gregory in a July 29 letter to rethink his prohibition.

An authoritarian Gregory replied that he allegedly has the “exclusive competence” to authorise Latin Masses according to the 1962 Roman Missal. The August 14 Mass “may be celebrated in Latin according to the Roman Missal promulgated by Saint Paul VI and revised by Saint John Paul II” - as if "Latin" were the problem.

Gregory feigned “regret” that his decision “has been a source of disappointment.” He is more accommodating towards pro-death politicians or homosex priests. In 2018 he “personally” invited the homosex activist James Martin to speak on homosex Jesuit ministry.

[Q.] So the main reason [for Traditionis custodes] is doctrinal?
[A.] Yes, and it is very important to say this and to be aware of it because, paradoxically, this is all very providential. It is of course very painful. It will hinder the diffusion of the traditional Mass. It will start new persecutions. But, on the other hand, it puts the finger on what hurts, namely the doctrinal status of …More
[Q.] So the main reason [for Traditionis custodes] is doctrinal?
[A.] Yes, and it is very important to say this and to be aware of it because, paradoxically, this is all very providential. It is of course very painful. It will hinder the diffusion of the traditional Mass. It will start new persecutions. But, on the other hand, it puts the finger on what hurts, namely the doctrinal status of Vatican II, which has never been settled.

[Q.] We come back to the fact that all experiments are permitted, including blessings of homosexual couples (forbidden by the Church), except "the experiment of Tradition", according to the expression of Archbishop Lefebvre...
[A.] Everything is allowed, any heresy can be professed by men of the Church , who still get to keep their Catholic "identity card" - except those who celebrate or attend the traditional Mass. No, they are accused by the Pope himself of tearing apart the unity of the Church.
[Q.] So, the bottom line is that this hatred of the traditional Mass has a doctrinal basis?
[A.] Absolutely. It is the hatred of the Tridentine ecclesiology, of all that this Mass represents from the point of view of Eucharistic doctrine as well as the doctrine of the Church.
