Archbishop Arthur Roche and the TLM


Una Voce Scotland has the details of an attack on the celebration of the Mass of Ages by Arthur Roche, Archbishop Secretary of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments. The Una Voce article rightly describes the Archbishop's misunderstanding of the Extraordinary form of the Mass and you can read further at Gloria TV News

You can read the document here:

It is only this week just gone that his boss at the Congregation for Worship, the very able and well respected Cardinal Sarah, has just had his resignation accepted by Pope Francis. I do hope His Grace's views are not the the Congregation will move in the future, now that Cardinal Sarah has gone. Having met the Cardinal and heard him speak, he had a much more positive view of out liturgical Tradition.

NB: I have amended this post, noting that Archbishop Roche's paper was written last year in 2020.
