Hungary's Foreign Minister: "How Many Churches Celebrate Ad Orientem?"

(Rome) On March 8, Hungary's Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto visited the earthquake-hit city of Tolentino. The minister was personally informed about the efforts of Hungarian aid. At the same time, he also inspected the progress of the reconstruction work of art goods and the work on the masonry of the severely damaged Church of the Sacred Heart. The security work on the church is financed by the Hungarian government. The contacts were brought about by Prior Andrea Corradori with the Brotherhood of the Sacred Heart of Jesus which is based at the parish.

"It was touching to see the young minister who entered the church which was closed because of the danger of collapse and genuflected to the Blessed Sacrament which was in the tabernacle, as was the case on the days of the earthquakes from the 26th to the 30th of August," Corradori said.
The minister asked the Prior of the Brotherhood of the Sacred Heart: "How many churches in Italy celebrate ad orientem?"
After the church visit,  the minister said in a local TV-interview:
"Hungary can face the challenges of the future if it is not removed from its Christian roots. For this reason, we are particularly responsible for helping the Christian communities in the world. So we did not think twice when the request came from Tolentino: We had to help!"
The Bishop of Macerata, Monsignor Nazzareno Marconi, also attended the meeting with the minister.

I apologize in advance if this offends anyone and in no way is this comment demanding you the reader agree with me.
We catholics are going to need priests and Bishops who are ordained/consecrated by Bishops who have traditional holy orders.
Ad Orientem is necessary but so are valid priests,Bishops,and the 1948 Missale Romanum.

I love it. Karl Habsburg is probably off attending a global warming conference or migrant welcoming conference so the foreign minister of Hungary has to step up and do what the Habsburgs should be doing.

That's what the SSPX bishops do.

Good, thanks for pointing that and thank God there are still some faithful Habsburgs that have some balls. They can't stay in the shadows forever, sooner or later they have to stand up and do what God long ago appointed them to do.

I doubt that anyone here disagrees that the old rites of consecration and ordination are superior, and should be made normative once again.

But even Archbp. Lefebvre was adamant that the Pauline rites, impoverished as they are, meet the form requirements laid out by Pius XII - as does the Society to this day.

What we need above all are faithful, orthodox, traditional - and courageous - bishops and priests. It was because there were too few of them by 1960 that we got in the mess we did.

In all due respect,
Not everyone belongs to
or adheres to the SSPX.
