Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos to Una Voce: "Pope Francis Has no Intention to Limit the Old Rite"

(Rome), Cardinal Dario Castrillon Hoyos took part in the Annual General Meeting of the International Federation Una Voce  (FIUV) in Rome. In his speech he referred to  the Franciscans of the Immaculate . The Cardinal tried to appease the case  of the traditional Franciscan Order, which was triggered by a radical intervention of  the Congregation of Religious in July,  and said Pope Francis would  only insist on the Novus Ordo " because of internal disagreements" as Catholic World News reported.
The former Prefect of the Congregation for the Clergy and former President of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei assured that Pope Francis has absolutely no intention to limit the celebration of Mass in the extraordinary form of the Roman rite. The cardinal is quoted as saying to Una Voce delegates: "I met Francis Pope recently and he told me that he has no problems with the old rite nor problems with groups and associations such as yours, which are promoting it."
As to questions by the FIUV delegates to the tensions surrounding the Order of the Franciscans of the Immaculate the cardinal told them that the Pope this order only because of the persistence of internal disputes  over  the new rite, but not because of an unfavorable opinion of the traditional liturgy.
The elected at the AGM FIUV new chairman, the Attorney James Bogle said: "We are very grateful to His Eminence Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos, His Eminence Cardinal Brandmüller, and to Archbishop Pozzo for taking part in our General Assembly of the International Federation Una Voce". Opposite CWN Bogle said: "We are very pleased with the way the celebration of the traditional Mass is now going worldwide. We are obviously very grateful to Benedict XVI and also our present Pope Francis for all the support that they have given us in our right to worship in the traditional Roman rite."
A video offers a glimpse into images in the Order of the Franciscans of the Immaculate, previously, evangelizing, missionary alternately, with the traditional rite and with numerous vocations. As to how the further development after the intervention of the Congregation of Religions and Pope Francis will be, it remains to be seen.
