Francis' Bitter Crusade Against Latin Intensifies
Stravinskas who himself regularly presides the Latin Novus Ordo Eucharist, informs that the Libreria Editrice Vaticana (LEV), the Vatican Press, is no longer printing or reprinting Novus Ordo liturgical books in Latin. Further, the Liturgy Congregation is even denying publishing houses permission to publish the books which LEV has laid aside.
This is mere lunacy as the Latin texts of the New Rite liturgy are the original and the basis of translations into vernacular languages. Stravinskas speaks of an “anti-Latin mania” that has gripped Francis.
Thankfully, this move will only damage the Novus Ordo Liturgy as the Vatican has lost or is about to lose the copyright of most Roman Rite liturgical books.
