Persecution of Latin Mass in Buenos Aires by Bergoglio?
We obviously dont't know if this commentor is credible, but this was posted the day before the conclave, after it was asked on Fr Z's blog if permission is needed to say the Novus Ordo in Latin. A commentator supposedly from Argentina posted this: (Which would confirm Rorate Caeli's article here ) Heaven help us if this is indeed the truth. We must Pray hard for Pope Francis...

Here in Buenos Aires, saying the OF in Latin is suicidal. The Archbishop and the “establishment” in the Archdiocese have made very clear that the ones who do this are to be considered “cryptolefebvrists”, “not ecclesially minded”, “un pastoral”, “unstable” or something like that. All these terms mean an “ecclesiastical death sentence”. Ad Orientem, in the vernacular or -worse- in Latin- is a sure sentence to ostracism. Priests who dare to do this end up immediately removed from their posts, out of “pastoral” concerns to obscure chaplaincies in the outskirts, hospitals or are denied permission to pursue higher studies. The seam if you dare to wear a cassock. The horror! Sure, there are no legal prohibitions to all this… but nonetheless…

robtbrown : Yes, indeed they have the right. But no one wants to start a fight with the Archbishop. You can go to the Nuncio, but that takes time… and a fight.
I am not saying that there are no good and holy priests here, there are. But Latin in the liturgy, save for places like the diocese of San Luis or the Archdiocese of La Plata is a “non issue”.

The Chicken: I honestly don’t think that you can infer from that fact that “Latin America” is not ready to “host a Pope”. In Argentina, we have our own very serious problems. Chiefly, the remnants of Liberation Theology resold by other names. But I cannot honestly say that this is the same everywhere in the whole continent which is enormous and very varied.
