Argentina: Bishops and Cardinals Commit Liturgical Abuse

In less than a decade, the Novus Ordo Church has destroyed a liturgical edifice of incredible beauty that took millennia to build, writes (14 March): "And we still go about our business as if nothing had happened." Caminante publishes the image of a splendid Holy Mass in the Roman Rite, and juxtaposes it with photos of two Argentinean bishops engaged in liturgical abuses in the Novus Ordo. Francis rigidly "forbids" the first, while he promotes the second. Caminante calls this hypocrisy. One picture shows Auxiliary Bishop Eduardo Redondo Castanera, 57, of Quilmes, Buenos Aires, presiding at a Eucharist during a meeting of Caritas volunteers on 29 December 2023. The elderly gentleman is seated on the floor, wearing a multicoloured stole, with a mate next to the chalice and a rag doll symbolising "Our Lady". The second is Cardinal Angel Rossi S.J., Archbishop of Cordoba, Argentina, on the occasion of his visit to the local deanery on 5 March. Wearing short sleeves, he is waving the Blessed Sacrament in front of his oversized belly believing that this is a "Eucharistic blessing". The man kneeling in the pictures is Cordoba's Auxiliary Bishop Horacio Alvarez, 67. The rest - priests and bishops - felt no need to move their bums in honour of the Blessed Sacrament. Cardinal Rossi is a member of the Vatican's Dicastery for the fight against Divine Liturgy. In the Novus Ordo, anything goes as long as it is irreverent, secularised and destructive. Everything else is persecuted. This is the way Francis wants it. Source
