[Summary] Traditionis Custodes

Here is the summary of Pope Francis’s Motu Proprio “Traditionis Custodes” On the Use of the Roman Liturgy Prior to the Reform of 1970.

  1. Priests ordained after 16Jul21 who wish to celebrate the Old Rite should submit a formal request to the diocesan Bishop who shall consult the Apostolic See before granting this authorization.
  2. Priests who already celebrate according to the Missale Romanum of 1962 should request from the diocesan Bishop the authorization to continue to enjoy this faculty.
  3. Bishops should:
  • Determine that these groups do not deny the New Rite
  • Designate locations for Old Rite OUTSIDE the parochial churches and SHOULD NOT erect new parishes
  • Establish the days on which the traditional rite are permitted with the readings proclaimed in the vernacular
  • Appoint a priest who is skilled in the use of the 1962 Missal who possess a knowledge of the Latin language
  • Not to authorize the establishment of new groups
