Resurrecting this thread, too, to point out just one thing that Humble Frank has done.

What exactly is His Holiness' stand on the traditional Latin mass?  I have heard everything from "he's very hostile towards it" to "he's indifferent" to "he doesn't care for the more elaborate ritual personally, but that when he was Archbishop of Buenos Aires he was supportive of those who wanted it".

Since the date of this post, he has slapped down, eviscerated, and basically destroyed one of the fastest growing Orders in the Church, the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate. Why? Because they had the temerity to prefer the 'Extraordinary Form', i.e. the Traditional Roman Rite, according to the Reforms of Pope John XXIII. 'Complaints' were raised by a few Friars (mostly Americans), who were upset by the fact that the Order had chosen, in full compliance with Canon Law and in full conformity with the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum to celebrate the Traditional Mass exclusively. Frankie's response was to appoint a 'special commissioner' to 'oversee the order with a mandate to quell disagreements that had erupted over the liturgy, and improve unity within its ranks'. It has basically made sure that the Order will no longer grow.

As I have said in many places, he will never abrogate the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum. When he has used every subterfuge possible to destroy the Mass of the Ages, when it is Celebrated only in a garage in Podunk, he'll say, 'See! The Latin Mass is still available! What are you complaining about'?

As I said on the thread regarding the canonisation of John Paul the Small, I have little doubt that, when the Church returns to sanity, and history judges Jorge Bergoglio, he will be considered the worst Pope in the history of the Church and the greatest disaster to be inflicted on the Church throughout its long tenure on Earth.

That said, I am still a Catholic, with no intention of leaving the Church by apostasy or by becoming a sedevacantist. My constant prayer is. 'Oh, my God! How long until you send us a Catholic Pope'?!

And I will remain a loyal Catholic, attending the Mass of the Ages as illustrated and keeping the Traditions of the Catholic Church, no matter what Humble Frank says or does!

I might be able to live with the light show (not very happily, but I might tolerate it), but the electric guitars, and the straggly  haired priest with his sloppily donned vestments... I'd have to find a new church.

No, but thanks for the reminder. I'm familiar with him and I'll find it and bookmark it.

His Holiness baptized 28 babies in the Sistine Chapel recently and encouraged the mothers of the crying babies to go ahead and breastfeed them right there in the chapel, since Christ had once been breastfed himself, giving great joy to advocates of public breastfeeding.

http://www.usatoday.com/story/news/2017/01/10/pope-encourages-breastfeeding-sistine-chapel/96385766/

I take no position on public breastfeeding, but I will say that Pope Francis has somewhat improved his taste in vestments lately.  Less plain, more pontifical.

Is that supposed to be Holy Mass in a Catholic Church?

Where and when was that picture taken?

I'm neither a Roman Catholic nor a Thomist (though I admire the Angelic Doctor) but Feser is a great and accessible defender of classical theism, natural law, and anti-naturalism. Apart from Peter Hitchens's, his is the only blog I regularly read.

If it weren't for the 'Vatican II' altar, I would hope it was Anglican, but they tend not to destroy their sanctuaries with new altars, so, no, I'm reasonably sure it's a Catholic Mass.

I'm afraid so.  I'm not sure when it was taken, but I'm almost certain that this was taken in Europe.  At least in America, there is less and less of this type of craziness.
