The Vatican State Secretariat has established a hierarchy in St. Peter's Basilica: Novus Ordo above, Traditional Rite below?
Traditional Rite to the catacombs?
A connection with the celebration in the Traditional Rite is not evident, which is why the only recognizable consequence remains to visibly downgrade the Holy Mass in the extraordinary form of the Roman rite compared to the Novus Ordo. St. Peter's Basilica is reserved exclusively for the novel liturgy, while the Traditional Rite is banished to the catacombs. It is also used physically, intentionally or unintentionally, to express who is “up” and who is “down” or who is above whom.
