Didn't the Chinese Communists recently do something similar, banning young people from Church?
From Rorate CæliIn his latest manifesto, Reese not only calls for overturning Summorum Pontificum, he states:
After the Pauline reforms of the liturgy, it was presumed that the “Tridentine” or Latin Mass would fade away. Bishops were given the authority to suppress it in their dioceses, but some people clung to the old liturgy to the point of schism.
Benedict took away the bishops’ authority and mandated that any priest could celebrate the Tridentine Mass whenever he pleased.
It is time to return to bishops the authority over the Tridentine liturgy in their dioceses. The church needs to be clear that it wants the unreformed liturgy to disappear and will only allow it out of pastoral kindness to older people who do not understand the need for change. Children and young people should not be allowed to attend such Masses.
If this is the thinking of a prominent American Jesuit -- that young Catholics should be prohibited from attending the traditional Latin Mass -- imagine the advice the most prominent Jesuit in the world must be receiving.
Pray for Pope Benedict XVI to live many more years in retirement.
