I don't really know much about this situation or how accurate this article is or anything substantive about, really, any of it.
"Francis has called Benedict's 2007 decree allowing wider use of the Latin Mass "prudent," but has warned that it risks being exploited on ideological grounds by factions in the church; Francis has made clear his disdain for traditionalist Catholics, saying they are self-absorbed retrogrades who aren't helping the church's mission to evangelize."
But here's what I do know: this is SPOT ON.
There's a tiny minority of traditionalists who see themselves as only one part of a whole, and whose aim is grow in charity with their fellow Catholics. The rest are simply trying in whatever way available to them to bend others to their will. When people don't comply, they cry persecution. I used to be this way.
I have nothing against the older liturgy, and clearly neither does Pope Francis, but I'm not sorry to see a crackdown on the rabble-raising and pseudo-intellectual whining.
