This report (or maybe it is a rumor) comes from Dr. Taylor Marshall, on his video blog: “The “Ecclesia Dei” communities or priestly societies attached to the 1962 Latin Mass are being summoned to Rome in September. This would include the FSSP (Fraternity of St Peter), ICKSP (Institute of Christ the King), and IBP (Institute of the Good Shepherd). This has traditionalists concerned about what could be next after devastating Motu Proprio Traditionis Custodes. Will these societies/institutes be restricted or asked to celebrate a “new Missal”, new calendar, or required to concelebrate?”
My opinion is that this is a continuation of the decision of Pope Francis to phase out the TLM entirely. It seems likely that this will happen sooner or later. The Pope has clearly decided
“Art. 1. The liturgical books promulgated by Saint Paul VI and Saint John Paul II, in conformity with the decrees of Vatican Council II, are the unique expression of the lex orandi of the Roman Rite.”
The Unique Expression means the Pope wants a single liturgical rite for the Roman Rite of the Church.
“In defense of the unity of the Body of Christ, I am constrained to revoke the faculty granted by my Predecessors.”
Pope Francis sees this issue as one of a grave problem of lack of unity, in that many TLM communities, or members or leaders, are really in a state of schism. They makes themselves as judges over Popes and Councils, treating their subculture as if it were above the Magisterium. And they treat the rest of the Church as if it has gone astray.
In fact, we see this error, which has led to Traditionis Custodes in the spoken and written words of Taylor Marshall along with many others. They are the cause of these restrictions. They bear the responsibility for Traditionis Custodes. It is because of their schismatic attitude toward the recent Popes and Councils, going so far in the case of Marshall as to call the decisions of the Church on doctrine and discipline an infiltration of evil into the Church. They complain about TC, but they are its cause — not Taylor alone but him with many other conservative and traditionalists who rebel against Pope Francis and Vatican II and the Magisterium itself.
