No Rigidity, No Legalism: Lake Charles Bishop Implements Traditionis Custodes

There is no prohibition in either particular law or universal law against the celebration of any sacrament in the Roman Rite in any parish, chapel or oratory of his diocese, Lake Charles Bishop Glen Provost, Louisiana, writes in a decree (below).

In his diocese, every priest can use the Roman Rite if he knows how to celebrate it and has a “basic knowledge” of Latin.

Existing Roman Mass groups may continue as before and are dispensed from TC’s rule that parish churches must be avoided.

In an accompanying letter, Provost explains that he is unaware of anyone in the Roman Rite communities expressing opposition to Vatican II, much less denying its legitimacy. Therefore, he writes that he would be “grossly negligent, if not callous, to implement any restrictive law.”

The bishop is aware of the needs of the people like illnesses, psychological problems, financial difficulties, unemployment or estrangement in marriage. Such people seek solace in the rites of the Church.

Provost acknowledges these realities and doesn't want to engage in arguments that the faithful find incomprehensible, thus making himself irrelevant as a bishop.

The bishop of Lake Charles, Louisiana, USA invoked Canon 87 to dispense HIS OWN CATHEDRAL parish (along with the new apostolate of the Institute of Christ the King Sovereign Priest in Sulphur, Louisiana) from Article 3, § 2 of Traditionis custodes.

Bishop of Lake Charles, Louisiana, won’t cancel any Traditional Masses. Francis’s cruel decree was a blunder.

Thank you, Most Reverend Glen Provost. You are an inspiration not only for the laity in general, but also for other Bishops who are struggling with the dictates of Pope Bergoglio. God Bless you.

De Tweede Vaticaanse Rooms Katholieken, de Novus Ordo ritus Rooms Katholieken hebben de Tridentijnse Rooms Katholieken, de Vetus Ordo of de Romeinse ritus nooit erkent en zullen dit ook nooit doen. Een mooi voorbeeld is paus Franciscus een aanhanger van het Tweede Vaticaanse Concilie en van de Novus Ordo ritus, paus Franciscus heeft de de Tridentijnse Heilige Mis, de Vetus Ordo ritus verboden in de Rooms Katholieke kerk, sterker nog paus Franciscus vervolgd de gelovigen die het Universele Tridentijnse Rooms Katholieke geloof belijden. Daardoor heeft paus Franciscus een schisma uitgesproken en zijn er twee totaal verschillende geloven ontstaan.

Good news for the flock in Lake Charles! I might have to add Bishop Provost to my Rosary intentions.
