A Million Rosaries for the Pope

The newly elected Superior General of the Society of St. Pius X (SSPX), Bishop Bernard Fellay has announced that the Society wants to present a spiritual bouquet of a million Rosaries to Pope Benedict XVI. The rosaries are to be collected and recited by the end of October for the following intentions:

1. To obtain from Heaven for Pope Benedict XVI the strength required to completely free the Mass of all time, called the Tridentine Mass.

2. For the return of the Social Kingship of Our Lord Jesus Christ.

3. For the triumph of the Immaculate Heart of Mary.

It appears that the SSPX is responding to the request of Pope Benedict XVI in his homily at his Papal Installation Mass: "Pray for me, that I may not flee for fear of the wolves."
The 'progressives' within the hierarchy are said to be regrouping quickly following the defeat of the liberal prelate, Carlo Cardinal Martin, at the most recent Conclave. Fr. James McLucas, editor-in-chief of The Latin Mass Magazine, quotes an opinion that the new Pope has very little time to accomplish even the beginnings of an authentic counter-reform.

The Pope needs all the rosaries he can get. I'm glad to see the SSPX lead the way.

"the Mass of all time"

The mass of all time?? It's only been around since the middle ages.

But, anonymous, it is a heck of a lot more traditional and belongs to many more ages than the still 'evolving' (or involuting) Novus Ordo!! Besides, your premise is only partly correct, so implied conclusion will be faulty.
