324 Cardinals and Bishops and Summorum Pontificum -- The Silent Victory March of the Traditional Liturgy

[Katholisches] Since the coming into force of the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum of Pope Benedict XVI. in 2007,  324 Cardinals and Bishops of the Catholic Church have celebrated the Holy Mass in the extraordinary form of the Roman Rite or have attended such (those before the effective date are not covered).

Since our last publication of the directory beginning of January 2012 , which contained the names of 254 cardinals and bishops,  70 high prelates were also added.

A largely self-evident situation with the Motu Proprio and the "Old Mass" is had by the bishops in France, the USA and Australia, where many pastors already celebrated even in the traditional form of the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass or such attended and offered the Sacraments.

In German-speaking countries, some bishops seem  more reluctant to do so. Among the currently reigning diocesan bishops in the Federal Republic of Germany,  only four have celebrated the Holy Mass in the extraordinary form or attended such, of which, however, only two have been added in recent months.  In Austria and Switzerland, alas, still only one. The Principality of Liechtenstein looks completely different because, as the only bishop in the country, Archbishop Wolfgang Haas promotes the right of both forms of the Roman rite equally.

The Spanish blog Acción Liturgica has published the following list, also supplementing and correcting some information. Thank you for any information on additions and corrections.

There are also the bishops of the Priestly Society of St. Pius X: Fellay, De Galarreta and Tisier de Mallerais since early 2009, and thus after the adoption of the motu proprio by order of Pope Benedict XVI., the Excommunication of 1988 was withdrawn from them by the Bishops' Congregation.

The most recent publication in January 2012, Williamson was also counted, but his status is completely unclear since his discharge from the SSPX.

Now if only Pope Francis celebrated one Holy Mass in the Old Rite. Just one.

Not buyin' it. said...

But Clinton...what if he did? So what? He would be like many who are named in the list above who still cling to their anti-Catholic behavior and heresies. I will name only one to prove my point but there are many on the list...pervert protecting, priest crucifying, sacrilege promoting Donald Wuerl. Most of the others are silent in the face of the crimes committed by their confreres so they are just as guilty.

Unless these same men who offer the Mass instituted by Christ (most did it once or twice as a novelty or not to be left out of the trend) also start to defend and protect also His doctrine and fight to crush the heresies...this means ABSOLUTELY NOTHING. Except maybe to lull Catholics into thinking things are getting better. And if that is the result of this morphing of faith, liturgy and doctrine then the result will be a victory for Hell.

Doctrine + Mass = Catholic Faith

Unknown said...

Bishop Williamson considers himself still part of the SSPX since his expulsion was on dubious grounds. God bless him. Nevertheless, a part of it or not, he is still a Catholic Bishop who celebrates the TLM. But then again he does not celebrate it because of S.P., which is just as dubious, but because 1) Quo Primum 2) because the TLM is only legal one of the two.

I see many heretics in the list. Some may count it as a victory but it is not. S.P. requires the acceptance of Vatican II and the Novus Ordo, that bastard rite. It forces the Old Mass and the New Mass, Catholic Theology and New Theology, to live in peace, which is impossible. What about the true faith? What about morals and virtue? Archbishop Lefebvre's fight was never about the mass was about the faith. These prelates can celebrate the TLM all they want to but the put on the Conciliar coat every single day. They never cease to scandalize us.

Thus there has been no victory yet. To see one is to turn a blind eye to the real problems.

Tancred said...

Problem being, assuming that you’re not a competent ecclesiastical authority, you have no competence to decide who is and who isn’t a Catholic.

Isn’t that correct?

Anonymous said...

For starters Pope Francis could have made a stronger statement to the bishops concerning 'the problem of traditionalists and the Novus Ordos'. If what was reported is what he said, all he said, certain bishops who attempt to persecute traditionalists will continue as is.

Tancred said...

Where did he say that?

Anonymous said...

Emancipation was the translation when addressing the gusestion/statement several bishops presented concerning 'the problem
of the traditionalists (versus) Novus Ordos). Did I mininterpret that?

Tancred said...

If you interpret that into an official approval and a nod frm the Pope to Liberal Bishops, that's stretching it.

Anonymous said...

I did not mean to stretch it. I did not interpret to myself or to anyone else as "a wink and a nod". I meant that for
Pope Francis' words to be taken very seriously by some obstinate bishops requires his words to be sterner more authoritative rather than seeming like mere advice.

Tancred said...

I suspect they were very offended by Francis's lack of responsiveness. How ever you stretch it, theses D Liberals look like disobedient villains.

Anonymous said...

You may be right. I do hope you are. Sometimes understatement says a lot.

Clinton R. said...

Point taken. However, if the Pope did celebrate Holy Mass in the Old Rite, then liberal modernists could not say the TLM is only celebrated by a few traditionalists.

Tancred said...

My trump card on this Pope and the thing I keep coming back to is that he loves Fatima.

James K Savonarola said...

one more name to include in the US is Archbishop Listecki from Milwaukee

Anonymous said...

Tancred, May God Bless the Pope.
John Kohn, May God Bless Archbishop Listecki.

Anonymous said...

He PREACHED in Latin at the TLM in Rome, FSSP Parish Santissima Trinita`.

schmenz said...


Could you give the details? Living in Milwaukee I am unaware that our Archbishop has ever said/attended the ancient rite. If true I would greatly appreciated knowing when and under what circumstances.

Many thanks.

James K Savonarola said...

sorry for the later response:

hope that helps

Anonymous said...

He was too old and infirm to celebrate for most of his remaining days, after Summorum Pont. was decreed, but he offered the Mass numerous times at the FSSP Parish just outside Atlanta. He also filled in LAST MINUTE for confirmations when the current holder of the See backed out.

IanW said...

I believe Archbishop Kevin McDonald has been listed twice under Great Britain:

"McDonald (retired Archbishop of Southwark) ... Kevin (former Archbishop of Southwark)"

Bishop Harpigny celebated "Old Mass?" So what ?
He put personnally pressure on Pope Benedict to be allowed to consecrate women deacon.. He didn't ask the Pope but CLAIMED it.

Hmmm, I don't think Mr Bergoglio's Latin is up to it. Have you heard him him labouring incomprehensibly during his NO "Masses"?

As a resident of St Andrews & Edinburgh, I'll name another ... The dreadful Mr KP O'Brien .... although he once wore the cappa magna!
