If this is the “New Evangelization” we’re in big trouble!

Traditionalists have charged that a double standard is at play, with a conservative, tradition-minded order being targeted for particular sanction on ideological grounds by a pope with a progressive bent.

“I hope that I am not being intemperate in describing this as rather harsh,” the Rev. Timothy Finigan, a British priest whose “The Hermeneutic of Continuity” blog is much-read in traditionalist circles, wrote last week of the sanctions.


Editor’s note: Is this Pope Francis’ “SSPX” Moment”? The Catholic Church continues to advocate religious liberty for Jews, Muslims, Pagans, Atheists and even (especially?) liberal Catholic heretics. But no religious freedom for traditional Catholics! 


  1. “Hermeneutic of Continuity” sounds like something right out of Orwell. If the phrase is not in the Newspeak Dictionary, it should be added.

  2. Just a matter of time, there will be, NO TRADITIONAl Masses said, and all Church sanctioned Latin Masses, will be a Thing Of The Past!
    What are my dear Relations, of my Extended Family,
    to do? They have, continued, attending Latin Mass, since 1965
    Underground Splinter Churches are the Future, for Conservative Catholics!
