Consecration of Bishops
FAQ: How do you relate to the other Catholic churches?
Shouldn't traditional Catholics who like Latin attend the Indult Mass?
In the thirty five or so years since Vatican-II, many Catholics
have unquestioningly accepted the gradual changes that make up New
Order Catholicism—traditional Catholics have not.
of the New Order may superficially resemble the churches of
traditional Catholicism (many of the newly built or "renovated" ones
do not), but what goes on inside of them is significantly different.
Traditional Catholic churches exist for the purpose of worshipping
God, and to sanctify His faithful by means of His Sacraments and His
unequivocal truth and moral requirements. Only in a minor way are
they places of social gathering, and in no way do they admit a
plurality of beliefs and moral practices.

traditional Catholicism see: Why
Catholics Must Resist Modernism
"The Indult" is a permission given to New Order priests to
celebrate the traditional Roman Mass, provided that they do not
question any of the innovations of the New Order, including the Novus
Ordo mass. The Pope's expressed intention in granting "the Indult"
was to draw the faithful away from those organizations that remained
faithful to the entirety of the Catholic Faith by offering them the
supposed "legitimacy" of papal permission.
It would be incorrect
to call those who patronize "the Indult" mass "traditional Catholics"—"Antiquarian Catholics," or, better still "New Order Antiquarians,"
would be more accurate.
Many of the New Order priests who celebrate the "Indult" mass use
the Novus Ordo rite with even greater regularity. A great number
were ordained in the new rite and/or by New Order bishops, who became
bishops by means of the new rite (1968) of "episcopal ordination."
Presumably they allow themselves to be guided by the New Catechism in
its theology of the Mass, dogma, and morals—if not, they won't be
New Order priests for long.
Being a Catholic is not a matter of liking or disliking Latin.
Traditional Catholics ought to attend Mass where the traditional
Catholic Faith is practiced exclusively—not just partially, or part
of the time. What the Antiquarians have to offer can be had on video
 The term "New Order" includes the various doctrinal and
moral innovations of the conciliar church, in addition to the "Novus
Ordo," New Order of Mass, created by Pope Paul VI. We generally use
the term in English to denote the movement as a whole, but use the
Latin, "Novus Ordo," to denote the new mass and sacramental rites
 Pope John Paul II, Ecclesia Dei adflicta.
 According to the recent Commission
protocol 99/1411, all "Indult priests" must follow the new rite
when they celebrate publicly in congregations where it is expected.
