What did he do now?
Apparently he has released some directive severely limiting the Latin Mass and walking back previous popes' willingness to be more open to the traditional forms.
Why? There is literally zero logical reason for him to do that. Does he genuinely believe that voluntary Latin Masses are some kind of a threat?
From what I can tell, he says they have become a source of disunity.
Bear in mind, this is the same guy who felt free to "correct" the Our Father.
Oh, and he also felt free to "correct" 2000 years of Christian understanding of the death penalty, and 1200 years of Jewish understanding of it before that.
5when did he "correct," the our father?
Pope Francis definitely comes across as believing he's here to set things right after so long of things being wrong.
The trouble is that the disrespect for the faithful and for the traditions of the church manifest since 1962, once a flowing creek, is now a tsunami. The disciplinary breakdown is severe enough that the greasy office politician is spitting into the wind.
It seems as though the worse things get in the Church in terms of gushing numbers and growing numbers who no longer care about the Church, the more advocates of the modern Church's approach to reform are hunkering down.
