  1. Of course, in typical conciliar style, no sooner did BXVI announce that the TLM had never been abrogated, in the next breath he abrogated it himself:

    First, by stipulating that any priest could say the TLM without permission for PRIVATE Masses;

    Second, he placed conditions and restrictions upon saying public TLMs;

    Third, he announced his intention to “enrich” the 1962 missal by incorporating Novus Ordo saints, feast days, and prefaces (ie., making the 1962 missal effectively a new creation).

    Therefore, BXVI is not the liberator of the TLM, but its jailer. And for this, the SSPX sang a Te Deum.

    • I agree that Summorum Pontificum was a terrible document. However, I don’t agree that he “abrogated”, strictly speaking, the TLM.
