Bye Bye Vatican II: Latin Is Now FORBIDDEN in Saint Peter’s

New Rite Chapter Eucharists in St Peter’s Basilica must be celebrated in Italian, a certain Monsignore Franco Camaldo announced in a June 28 ukase re-published by

This measure is a slap in the face of Vatican II which decrees that "the use of the Latin language is to be preserved in the Latin rites” (Sacrosanctum Concilium, 36). Only the Gloria, Sanctus, Our Father and Agnus may be occasionally in Latin. Whether this will be the case is up to the Prefect or the Master of the Sistine Chapel Choir. The readings and the Prayer of the Faithful may be in various languages - except Latin.

In future, also the Chapter of Saint Peter's will be forced to sing the Liturgy of the Hours in Italian, maintaining the Gregorian melody - which is impossible with an Italian text - and keeping only some parts in Latin: Hymn, Antiphon, Benedictus, Magnificat and Our Father. Latin in the Liturgy of the Hours will be abolished when corresponding Italian booklets are ready.

In the list of world languages by total number of speakers, Italian is on place 27 after Javanese and before Western Punjabi. This measure seems to reflect Francis' personal animosity against Latin because due to his poor theological formation his Latin is also poor.

The infallible Council of Trent:

If any one saith, that the rite of the Roman Church, according to which a part of the canon and the words of consecration are pronounced in a low tone, is to be condemned; or, that the mass ought to be celebrated in the vulgar tongue only;...let him be anathema.

Step by step the Vatican is ramping up its daily war of attrition against the Faith of ages.
Tree shares this
In a letter the Canons of the Chapter of the Basilica of St Peter, Rome, are advised that henceforth the liturgical language of the capitular liturgy will be principally Italian rather than Latin, although the fixed chants of the Mass may continue to be in Latin.
Why they (demons and those associated) hate Latin
They'll be a push-back to be sure...

Does anyone know if the Italian nv2 mass "has for many" or "for all?" Remember Res Sacramenti!
Excellent observation Jeffrey, devastating potential!
In the end my immaculate heart will triumph! We should all learn to say that in Latin!
Drop by drop against Tradition continues.

22 February 1962 - Pope John XXIII publishes, Veterum Sapientia, an Apostolic Constitution emphasizing the importance of the study of Latin to better understand the Latin liturgy, during the Roman Synod preparing for Vatican II.

Many thanks @Scapular
Finally, the long expected "reform of the reform" seems to reach its ultimate stage.
