Pope Reveals His Contempt for Catholics Faithful to Ancient Liturgy

Edit: we could just as well have stopped at "Pope Reviles Catholics", since those who don't cherish the traditions and doctrines handed down by the Apostles are hardly Catholic themselves.

The war against the Reform of the Reform continues apace and it is only its resemblance to true and authentic public worship and the faith which they seem to abhor.  It causes the Pope to sneer and revile young people who embrace it.  You will recognize some of the usual slights made by leftist and effeminate clergy against the faithful who remain true to the traditions of the Church.  We were wondering when he'd take a swipe at Pope Benedict's project to restore the liturgy after the depradations of a half-century of modernist innovation.

Picked this article up from Catholic Culture and Catholic Family News:

He also discussed the sacred liturgy. Crux reported:
Asked about the liturgy, Pope Francis insisted the Mass reformed after the Second Vatican Council is here to stay and “to speak of a ‘reform of the reform’ is an error.”
In authorizing regular use of the older Mass, now referred to as the “extraordinary form,” now-retired Pope Benedict XVI was “magnanimous” toward those attached to the old liturgy, he said. “But it is an exception.”
Pope Francis told Father Spadaro he wonders why some young people, who were not raised with the old Latin Mass, nevertheless prefer it.
“And I ask myself: Why so much rigidity? Dig, dig, this rigidity always hides something, insecurity or even something else. Rigidity is defensive. True love is not rigid.”

First Old Mass For Tarento Brotherhood in 40 Years

Edit: Taranto is the third largest city in Italy.
(Taranto)  Last Sunday, the 15th of July, Msgr Marco Gerardo, vintage 1975, the director of the Liturgical Office and spiritual assistent of the Arch Brotherhood of our Beloved Lady of Carmel offered the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass in the Immemorial Mass of all Ages.  The Mass was at the central Piazza Giovanni XIII before the church Maria Santissima del Monte Carmelo.  Before the beginning of the Mass the new members were formally admitted to the brotherhood and made their vows pubicly.

The Immemorial Rite was celebrated for the first time at confirmation in Taranto in 2010, at the church of St. Augustine, then in the church of Santa Maria del Carmine, where Monsignor Gerardo has been pastor since 2010 and implements the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum of Pope Benedict XVI. The Brotherhood of Our Lady of Mount Carmel under the baton of Antonello Prior Papalia has a Choral schola.

Monsignor Gerardo received his philosophy and theology at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome and then earned a degree in liturgy at the University of Sant'Anselmo in Rome. Next to his duties as a pastor and in the Archdiocesan Ordinariate, he is professor of liturgy at the Institute for Religious Studies "Romano Guardini," Taranto and chaplain of the Knights of the Holy Sepulcher in the Archdiocese. By 2010 he was secretary of the Archbishop of Taranto, Monsignor Luigi Benigno Papa, OFM Cap.

Taranto has a strong community of tradition which has formed in the course of the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum. After 40 years, the Old Mass was celebrated again on Sunday for the first time as part of the festivities celebrating the brotherhood. The Brotherhood has more than 1,800 members and is a prayer alliance. Already established in the 16th Century, they reached their present form in 1675.
