Edit: it looks like the Thomas Merton types in the Monastery got their way at last.
[GloriaTV] The old-rite Trappist abbey of Mariawald, Germany, will be closed down. The Vatican, the Trappist order, and the Diocese of Aachen on whose territory the abbey is located, have announced this in Mariawald.
The monastery was inhabited by the Trappists since 1909. All employees lose their jobs. The monks will be transferred to other monasteries.
During this year, the monastery and all its possessions will be handed over to Aachen diocese. The monastery and church of Mariawald will probably remain closed forever.
In a letter dated November 21, 2008, Benedict XVI granted the abbey the privilege to return to the old usages of the Trappist Order in liturgy and monastic life. This concerned especially a return to the venerable Old Rite. The pope saw this project as a "renewal of the church in the spirit of tradition". Now this renewal is over before it could get off the ground.
It shows how worried the Vatican is by the older liturgy which shows up the inadequasies of the new
I hope Pope Francis’ pontificate ends soon.
A November 2016 item from Aachener-Zeitung.de ( Abtei Mariawald: Unruhe nach dem Rücktritt von Joseph Vollberg : Abbey Mariawald: unrest after the resignation of Joseph Vollberg) provides the context and basis for such a decision: A “revolt” of the “old guard” (the monks who “grew up” with the post-Vatican 2 changes) against the “new regimen” (the unmitigated Rule of St. Benedict)!
@David O'Neill: Your mental acuity is crippled as mine by something called a conscience. You are dealing with theological psychopaths. Kasper and Marx and the bois are worried about nothing. They have the high ground on one of the seven hills which is parallel in height to the hill with the cross on it.
O Lord come to our assistance,
O God make haste to help us.
When Jesus reveals his victory he will put back this monastery, if He wills it.
Viva Cristo Rey !
Catholics will have to wait until the V2 wreckers die. How will God judge them for their attacks on the Mass and Office?
They tried replace the true Mass with an erroneous counterfeit.
However it is unfortunate that they were using the same new theology as the liberals.

Hilary White and Massimo Faggioli interpret the Catechism, Vatican Council II and Letter of the Holy Office with hypothetical cases not being hypothetical : so there is a rupture with Tradition (with graphics)
Amen to that.
