Bliver messen* nu helt forbudt?




Der er ikke så lidt røre i andedammen for tiden, og det skyldes jo udsigterne til at den traditionelle latinske messeform efter sigende bliver endeligt forbudt, d. 16. juli i år. Det kommer som en overraskelse, men det burde det ikke. Kirken har hårdhændet reguleret den traditionelle messe før, og derfor er det ikke overraskende at modernisterne ved roret, naturligvis vil gøre det igen. De fleste klapper i hænderne over Pave Benedikt XVIs "Summorum Pontificum", men overser (udover problemerne i dét dokument) at Pave Johs. Paul II var mindst lige så restriktiv, som Pave Frans er i dag. Ordene og formuleringerne var dengang lidt anderledes, men essensen var dengang den samme. Problemet er som sådan ikke liturgisk, men teologisk - for med en liturgi som har sin form fra oldkirken og sidenhen forfinet i højmiddelalderen, følger en teologi som stammer fra oldkirken, og som har været i Kirkens varetægt siden apostlene. Det skærer i ørerne hos en kleriker der ønsker at tilpasse teologi og formelle udtryk til nutiden, og det er præcist dét som Pave Johs. Paul II gjorde meget klart. Liturgi er ligegyldig hvis den ikke flugter med teologi og Sandhed, og det ved modernister udmærket godt.

*) den traditionelle af slagsen, altså.

I videoen kommenterer jeg på nedenstående, med afsæt i dels hovedpointerne i "Ecclesia Dei Afflicta", og de afledte konsekvenser af det - må vi antage - kommende forbud mod den traditionelle latinske messeform - suppleret med en lille spekulativ teaser. Lovet være Jesus Kristus, nu og i al evighed.


"Ecclesia Dei Afflicta"

3. In itself, this act was one of disobedience to the Roman Pontiff in a very grave matter and of supreme importance for the unity of the church, such as is the ordination of bishops whereby the apostolic succession is sacramentally perpetuated. Hence such disobedience - which implies in practice the rejection of the Roman primacy - constitutes a schismatic act.(3) In performing such an act, notwithstanding the formal canonical warning sent to them by the Cardinal Prefect of the Congregation for Bishops on 17 June last, Mons. Lefebvre and the priests Bernard Fellay, Bernard Tissier de Mallerais, Richard Williamson and Alfonso de Galarreta, have incurred the grave penalty of excommunication envisaged by ecclesiastical law.(4)
4. The root of this schismatic act can be discerned in an incomplete and contradictory notion of Tradition. Incomplete, because it does not take sufficiently into account the living character of Tradition, which, as the Second Vatican Council clearly taught, "comes from the apostles and progresses in the Church with the help of the Holy Spirit. There is a growth in insight into the realities and words that are being passed on. This comes about in various ways. It comes through the contemplation and study of believers who ponder these things in their hearts. It comes from the intimate sense of spiritual realities which they experience. And it comes from the preaching of those who have received, along with their right of succession in the episcopate, the sure charism of truth".(5)
But especially contradictory is a notion of Tradition which opposes the universal Magisterium of the Church possessed by the Bishop of Rome and the Body of Bishops. It is impossible to remain faithful to the Tradition while breaking the ecclesial bond with him to whom, in the person of the Apostle Peter, Christ himself entrusted the ministry of unity in his Church.(6)


"Quattuor Abhinc Annos"


Most Rev. Excellency: Four years ago, by order of the Supreme Pontiff John Paul II, the bishops of the whole Church were invited to present a report: — concerning the way in. which the priests and faithful of their dioceses had received the Missal promulgated in 1970 by authority of Pope Paul VI in accordance with the decisions of the Second Vatican Council — concerning the difficulties arising in the implementation of the liturgical reform; — concerning possible resistance that may have arisen. The result of the consultation was sent to all the bishops (cf. Notitiae, n. 185 December 1981). On the basis of their replies it appeared that the problem of priests and faithful holding to the so-called "Tridentine" rite was almost completely solved. Since, however, the same problem continues, the Supreme Pontiff, in a desire to meet the wishes of these groups grants to diocesan bishops the possibility of using an indult whereby priests and faithful, who shall be expressly indicated in the letter of request to be presented to their own bishop, may be able to celebrate Mass by using the Roman Missal according to the 1962 edition, but under the following conditions: a) That it be made publicly clear beyond all ambiguity that such priests and their respective faithful in no way share the positions of those who call in question the legitimacy and doctrinal exactitude of the Roman Missal promulgated by Pope Paul VI in 1970. b) Such celebration must be made only for the benefit of those groups that request it; in churches and oratories indicated by the bishop (not, however, in parish churches, unless the bishop permits it in extraordinary cases); and on the days and under the conditions fixed by the bishop either habitually or in individual cases. c) These celebrations must be according to the 1962 Missal and in Latin. d) There must be no interchanging of texts and rites of the two Missals. e) Each bishop must inform this Congregation of the concessions granted by him, and at the end of a year from the granting of this indult, he must report on the result of its application. This concession, indicative of the common Father's solicitude for all his children, must be used in such a way as not to prejudice the faithful observance of the liturgical reform in the life of the respective ecclesial communities. I am pleased to avail myself of this occasion to express to Your Excellency my sentiments of deep esteem. Yours devotedly in the Lord Augustin Mayer, Pro-Prefect Virgilio Noe Secretary

Åb 12: "Og et stort Tegn blev set i Himmelen: en Kvinde, iklædt Solen og med Månen under sine Fødder og en Krans af tolv Stjerner på sit Hoved. 2 Og hun var frugtsommelig og skreg i Barnsnød, under Fødselsveer. 3 Og et andet Tegn blev set i Himmelen, og se, der var en stor, ildrød Drage, som havde syv Hoveder og ti Horn og på sine Hoveder syv Kroner. 4 Og dens Hale drog Tredjedelen af Himmelens Stjerner med sig og kastede dem på Jorden. Og Dragen stod foran Kvinden, som skulde føde, for at sluge hendes Barn, når hun havde født det. 5 Og hun fødte et Drengebarn, som skal vogte alle Folkeslagene med en Jernstav; og hendes Barn blev bortrykket til Gud og til hans Trone. 6 Og Kvinden flyede ud i Ørkenen,hvor hun har et Sted beredt fra Gud, for at man skal ernære hende der eet Tusinde, to Hundrede og tresindstyve Dage."
