This could very well be a great sign of good to come. Thank you Holy Father!
Let us pray that His Holiness will take the opportunity to replace all the retiring bishops with true shepards :pray:

One down, several hundred to go.

Still, a journey of a thousand miles and all that good stuff.

What exactly did His Excellency do to deserve the "rejoicing of Traditionalists everywhere"?

Conservatives are actually enemies of Tradition.

Don't be a buzz-kill and enjoy the party. Let's just chalk it up to sloppy reporting and continue the celebration; eh?

Did you miss this part?

There is seldom reason to celebrate nowadays. We live in dangerous times, times where the Church has been ransacked from top to bottom by heretics and apostates of all sorts. By the mercy of God, we were chosen to live in this age of perversion, certainly as a penance for our innumerable sins and as an opportunity to bear witness to Our Lord.

This doesn't tell us much, really. Just like the Pope, His Excellency certainly celebrates the Novus Ordo mass among other things pertaining to the new church. Being an ecclesia dei friend, assuming he's even one of them, doesn't qualify as being a "friend of Tradition". Friends of tradition are all those people, clergy and laity, who chose persecution and humiliation rather than going along in the destruction of the Church. The real friends of Tradition don't confuse the cause (modernism) with the effects (the new church). This is not a battle for "smells and bells", much less a battle to have Tradition "recognized" by the new church: to have an official status on par with modernism. What an aberration that would be! "What harmony is there between Christ and Belial?". Indeed, this is a fight to the death between the friends of Christ and the friends of Satan.

Conservatives of today are just the liberals of tomorrow. No reason to cheer.

Even still, don't you agree that a Bishop who not only encourages the EF but actually says it himself is much preferable to one who attempts to suppress it?
