Pope Francis, Now the Jesuits Are Control All Your Bases!

Edit: when we were watching the last election, it was with resignation.  Pope Benedict XVI was a possibility and probably the best possibility of them all, but there was much trepidation about what he’d do in the future.  Could we be, as one anonymous canonist remarks, be looking down the barrel of another Vatican Council?

At this point, the new Holy Father, Francis I, is not being met with a great deal of enthusiasm by traditionalists in Argentina.  Despite his intransigence on matters such as sexual morality where he opposed illicit unions, he has been unfriendly to tradition in his See.

This may mean, of course, the death of any reconciliation with the Society of St. Pius X, and even a complete abandonment of Benedict XVI’s project of restoration.

He’s already off to a bad start, (change is a bad thing in rituals and doctrine) taking an unusual name and appearing to the Sala window only in a white cassock without his mozetta as his predecessors had done.  At least he kept the Ferula Papalis, but I don’t think we can be hopeful that he will be restoring the papal coronation and tiara at any point.

Still, it’s not the end of the world. The Pope in white may be the greatest Pope we’ve ever had, greater even than St. Pius IX.  Or he may be the worst Pope we’ve ever had, only time will tell.

Anyway, don’t expect him to put much of a break on false ecumenism:

Update:  Here’s a comment from Rorate Caeli’s combos:

"I live in Buenos Aires. Bergoglio has destroyed the archdioceses, persecuting every single orthodox priest. He despises sacrality, and has de facto prohibited the application of Summorum Pontificum. He is an utter enemy of Tradition, ill-minded, almost maffiosi. This has to be a severe chastisement from God to us all."
