Pope doubles down on quashing Latin

Pope Francis on Saturday extended his efforts to quash the old Latin Mass by also forbidding the celebration of some sacraments according to the ancient rite in his latest salvo against conservatives and traditionalists. The pope’s decree forbids using the ancient ritual for the sacraments Confirmation and Ordination, and makes it exceedingly difficult to use the old rite for Baptism, Marriage and Anointing of the Sick.
