Openness at St.Peter's Square in prayers for Syria does not include small church 100 metres away

When Pope Francis was praying at St.Peter's Square for peace in Syria, and was asking people of other religions to pray according to their religions, demonstrating such a great 'openness' he did not allow Catholics to pray at a little church some 100 metres away. This is the Church of the Annunciation of the Blessed Virgin Mary, called the church of the Annunziata. There was a ban on the traditional Mass in Latin placed by Pope Francis.
I would attend Mass there at 10.30 a.m. I would also eagerly wait to read the next issue of Il Settimanale di Padre Pio. There were other publications there which were edifying and worth reading.
It has been a long time now. There has been no TLM Mass there.
During the time I attended Mass there, there was a strong campaign in the mainstream secular media in Italy against the Traditional Latin Mass.
They were critical of the TLM and not the Mass in the vernacular, since they assumed that the TLM carried the traditional values of the Church. The pope and the liberal left call it 'triumphalism'. The TLM says extra ecclesiam nulla salus.
On Sundays I would, also attend Mass in Italian. For me the Novus Ordo Mass does not contradict extra ecclesiam nulla salus as interpreted by Fr.Leonard Feeney ( no visible to us baptism of desire).Neither does it contradict Vatican Council II (Ad Gentes 7), 'all' need 'faith and baptism' for salvation. Neither does it contradict the triumphalistic Catechesim of the Catholic Church 846, outside the church no salvation, 'all need to enter the Church as through a door'.
So on Saturday evenings I would attend Mass in Italian with the festive rite, on Sunday morning I would attend the TLM at the Annunziata and on Sunday evening again another Mass in Italian.On Sunday I would receive the Eucharist at only one Mass.
Pope Francis has placed restrictions on the TLM since for him  ecclesiology and salvation theology has been changed  with an interpretation of Vatican Council II. This interpretation uses an irrational premise, a false premise. It is with this irrational premise that  a new, non traditional ecclesiology is created.
However the pope and the Jewish Left media and those living in public mortal sin who support him, are still not aware of this error!. They still do not know that the old values which they associate with the TLM are also there with the Novus Ordo Mass. They are there  as long as one does not claim that the dead are viisble to us; as long as they do not claim that these dead-saved are known exceptions to the dogma extra ecclesiam nulla salus.
They are not aware that it is a false, irrational premise that is the basis for the 'theology of religions', a liberal Vatican Council II, a new ecclesiology, a new theology and other new doctrines. It is based on the absurdity of being able to see the dead in Heaven now saved in invincible ignorance, baptism of desire etc, that there is ' a development of doctrine'. This is humorous but it is also a serious issue.
In his first encylical Pope Francis addresses all Christians and indicates that they have e'cclesial faith'. Since for him, Protestants can be saved in 'imperfect communion with the church'(UR 3). These cases of the dead, saved with imperfect communion with the church' are visible for him on earth. So they contradict the dogma.he can shake their hands when he goes out to meet the poor.
In his last exhortation Pope Francis presented a Protestant kerygma which excluded the necessity of belonging to the Catrholic Church, with 'faith and baptism' (AG 7,Vatican Council II). Since for him Vatican Council II mentions known visible- in- the- flesh exceptions to the  triumphalistic extra ecclesiam nulla salus, Syllabus of Errors and Vatican Council II itself (AG 7,LG 14)
At some time in the future they will discover that it is not the TLM which is the cause of triumphalism and that they would have the same problem, with Catholics who attend Holy Mass in the vernacular.

The Franciscans of the Immaculate under visitation
30 of 33 FI-run TLMs in Italy shut down since July 11
Il Coordinamento Nazionale del Summorum Pontificum reports that out of 33 sites where the Franciscans of the Immaculate had offered the Traditional Latin Mass daily or weekly before July 11, only 3 still have this Mass.

More specifically, the Vetus Ordo had been said daily, or at least weekly, in almost all the houses of the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate in Italy. In addition, it was celebrated in parishes entrusted to the friars, namely, the parishes of All Saints' (Ognissanti) in Florence, Santo Spirito in Ferrara, S. Maria Maggiore in Trieste and S. Domenico in Teramo. The Vetus Ordo was also celebrated by the friars in the Santuario della B. V. Addolorata in Campocavallo, the FI's Seminary in Sassoferrato, and in Santa Maria Annunziata in Borgo in Rome (the Nunziatina).
After July 11, by order of the Apostolic Commissioner, the Seminary in Sassoferrato was closed (as Rorate earlier reported) and another three houses suppressed (in the Diocese of Albenga-Imperia, where the bishop had tried to support the friars in trying to retain the Traditional Latin Mass, as reported in numerous sources). In the remaining places where the FI had offered the Vetus Ordo before July 11, only the Ognissanti in Florence, S. Domenico in Teramo, and the Santuario della B. V. Addolorata in Campocavallo still have them. Requests to continue the celebration of the Vetus Ordo in the other sites were refused by the Apostolic Commissioner.

A brief English notice relaying the same news can be found here; this page also appeals to readers for information on the state of TLM sites formerly run by the FI in countries outside of Italy.

Please, also send this information or corrections to Rorate for a fair and accurate future report on the status of FI-kept Traditional Masses in Italy and throughout the world.-
