LATIN America: Bishop Forbids LATIN In Novus Ordo
Since the decree contradicts Vatican II and Canon 928 which both state that Latin is the main liturgical language, it is null and void.
José Pablo Arias Soto, the president of the Costa Rica Summorum Pontificum Association which has been organising for the last nine years the Roman Rite Mass in Alajuela Diocese, double-checked with Buigues who replied that, indeed, “the Novus Ordo in Latin and ad orientem is forbidden in my diocese.”
Arias will canonically respond to Buigues decree which contradicts universal law. He will organise a day of prayer in front of the Apostolic Nunciature on July 31.
