Trying to be "More Traditional" than the SSPX: Fraternity of St. Peter Goes Rad Trad for Holy Week. Vatican Gives Permission to Use Pre-Hannibal Bugnini Holy Week. BUT, still kneel for the Jews. Does this mean ALL BLACK Good Fridays Again?
I believe it was Fr. Carl Pulvermacher who said, "They will allow the traditional Mass when they run out of validly ordained priests." Is the Fraternity trying to draw from both the SSPX AND the CMRI?

Blowoff, Vatican Allows Easter Rites Prior to the Reform of Pius XII
The Priestly Fraternity of St Peter has been granted an indult by the Vatican Commission Ecclesia Dei to use the liturgical books for Holy Week as they were until the [failed] reform of Pius XII (+1958). The indult is granted ad experimentum for three years.
The information was published in several of the Fraternity’s US-parish bulletins. Each church of the Fraternity has to request permission from the superiors before taking advantage of the indult. According to rumours, 25 parishes have been granted permission so far.
However, on Good Friday, the prayer for the Jews published by Pope Benedict XVI must be used.

It is reasonable to assume that since the FSSP and most of their congregants embrace the Vatican II document, Nostra Aetate, willingly support the Benedict XVI teachings on that topic. The exceptions would be those traditional Catholics who are unfortunate enough not to have an SSPX Chapel within reasonable traveling distance. As for the rest, it is clear that they openly endorse the pro-Jewish Holy Week changes made after 1954, otherwise why would they even be attending an FSSP celebrated Mass?ReplyDelete
Possibly because it's the only traditional Mass within a few hundred miles?Delete
