Trying to force Eastern Catholics to comply with Western practices has happened before.......

The Pope could also dissolve Roman priests' promises of celibacy, require priests to be married, and abrogate the traditional Mass, and you couldn't do anything about it. He has universal and immediate jurisdiction. Period. Tradition has no rights. Pope Pius IX wasn't far off when he (perhaps apocryphaly) declared, "Tradition? I am tradition."

If from a conservative Catholic perspective (ecclesia Dei or EWTN conservative), my assessment above is wrong, please explain how so, because I don't see any way around that conclusion... and honestly...
I'd like one.
