ROME (AP) — Pope Francis has intervened for the third time to crack down on the celebration of the old Latin Mass, a sign of continued friction with Catholic traditionalists.

Francis reasserted in a new legal decree published Tuesday that the Holy See must approve new celebrations of the old rite by signing off on bishops’ decisions to designate additional parish churches for the Latin Mass or to let newly ordained priests celebrate it.
The decree states that the Vatican’s liturgy office, headed by British Cardinal Arthur Roche, is responsible for evaluating such requests on behalf of the Holy See and that all requests from bishops must go there.
For weeks, Catholic traditionalist blogs and websites have reported a further crackdown on the old Latin Mass was in the works, following Francis’ remarkable decision in 2021 to reimpose restrictions on its celebration that were relaxed in 2007 by then-Pope Benedict XVI.

So here’s the backstory. In 2016, Florida passed a law prohibiting state funds from going to Planned Parenthood.
Some nutty judge predictably blocked them, ruling that since Roe v. Wade is the law of the land and abortion is a right the state government can’t do that. (Never mind the fact that PP says abortion is only 3% of what they do.)
But now, as you might recall, Roe is no longer the law of the land. No Mo’Roe. (Thank you DJT!) So the Attorney General of Florida is seeking to have the law put back on the books.
And today, Gov. Ron DeSantis announced his strong support of defunding Planned Parenthood in Florida.
“The Office of Governor Ron DeSantis is fully behind this action from the Attorney General and we support this move to fully defund Planned Parenthood from any taxpayer support,” read a statement from the Governor’s office.
Let’s hope and pray that this happens. Planned Parenthood is evil. They should not receive a dime of public funding.

(LifeSiteNews) — Fr. Gerald Murray denounced the Vatican’s crackdown on the Latin Mass as a “persecution” of traditional Catholics that “is damaging the Church” and threatening bishops’ rights under canon law.
In another powerful interview on EWTN’s _The World Over _last night, the New York priest and canonist responded to Pope Francis’ latest restrictions on the Latin Mass, which limit the power of bishops to dispense from his 2021 apostolic letter _Traditionis custodes_.
The new restrictions came in the form of a rescript issued Tuesday by Cardinal Arthur Roche, the prefect of the Dicastery for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments (DDWDS) and a militant opponent of traditional worship. According to the document, diocesan bishops must obtain explicit permission from the dicastery before allowing priests to celebrate the Latin Mass in parish churches or establishing new personal parishes for the celebration of the old Mass.
Fr. Murray decried the rescript as yet another move by the Vatican to “marginalize, restrict, and banish Latin Mass people” and condemned pushing traditional Catholics out of their parishes as “a basic violation of Church order.”
“There is no reason why any parishioner should be thrown out of his parish church,” he said.
“The fact that Cardinal Roche and the pope don’t find the old Mass to be, you know, useful or fruitful for them, a good expression of how we should pray, that opinion you can have — I think it’s not a good opinion, I would like to discuss it with them,” he said, “but please, for the love of God, don’t turn around and tell a family of 10 who’s been going to the Latin Mass for the last 30 years that you and your children have to get in your car and drive somewhere else because you’re not going to be able to have Mass at your parish church where your children were baptized, and made their Communion, and all the rest.”
“This makes absolutely no sense. It’s a persecution of Latin Mass Catholics, plain and simple,” Fr. Murray insisted. “And it can’t be justified by saying, well, this is going to help promote the mission of the Church.”
“This is damaging the Church. It absolutely is.”
