Canon Law changed – bishops will now need permission of Holy See to establish religious institutes

Sunday sermons, weekday observations

Prolific, much appreciated commentator/blogger Fr. Z. smells a rat.

I don’t know about what’s going on in Africa, S. America, etc. However, it seems to me that this is aimed directly at the prevention of the undesirable rise of traditionally oriented religious institutes. I have a strong sense that just about the only new groups that are being founded are, in fact, tradition leaning.

Sad indeed that there’s such suspicion of traditionalists in the higher ranks of Holy Mother Church. Vatican 2 arguably threw out the baby with the bath in its mauling of Tradition via liturgical “reform,” among other matters. Suspicion of Tradition itself, clearly.
