Vatican Joins Cancel Culture, No More TLM in St. Peter's

UPDATE: There was some question yesterday as to the authenticity of the Vatican directive. That authenticity has now been confirmed by Edward Pentin.

The Remnant offers €1000 reward to first priest who breaks new Vatican law

Apparently, the COVID shutdown of churches across the world wasn’t quite enough for Team Francis. A new directive from the Vatican Secretary of State cancels private Masses and all Traditional Latin Masses inside the main Basilica of St. Peter in Rome.


After hundreds of years of private masses being celebrated almost constantly over the tombs of Christendom’s holiest popes, those side altars will go dormant later this month and remain as such for good.

Well played, Team Francis!

If this directive is authentic—and we have good reason to believe it is—it would mean that Team Francis has evidently determined that the world will be better off with fewer Masses and no Traditional Latin Masses at all inside St. Peter’s.

Earlier today, Vatican journalist Diane Montagna tweeted out that her sources indicate the directive is authentic.

Presuming this to be the case, we can only conclude that, with little or no appreciation for the infinite merit of even just one private Mass (regardless of how many or how few faithful are in attendance), the Vatican has determined that the world will be better off with fewer Masses here in arguably the darkest moment in the history of Christianity since the Crucifixion of Jesus Christ.  

As faithful sons and daughters of the Church, we object to this outrage and call upon all faithful Catholics to resist Francis to his face even as Paul resisted Peter to his.

The Remnant is offering a €1000 reward to the first priest who breaks this demonic new law and celebrates the traditional Latin Mass in Saint Peter’s. Photos please.
