CWN Editor's Note: A retired Argentine archbishop has said that Pope Francis places “arbitrary limits and obstacles” on the celebration of the traditional Latin Mass. “The new measures imply a regrettable step backwards,” said Archbishop Hector Aguer, who led the La Plata archdiocese until his retirement in 2018. The archbishop—who said that he himself does not celebrate the traditional Mass—charged that the Pope had shown a lack of respect “for the freedom of priests and the faithful.” He added, however, that he would accept the restrictions of Traditionist Custodes “if the Holy See would attend to what I call the devastation of the liturgy, which is verified in multiple cases.”
