Vatican further restricts Latin Mass

Pope Francis has issued a rescript formally confirming restrictions that the Dicastery for Divine Worship had already placed on the celebration of the traditional Latin Mass. The rescript, issued yesterday, says that a parish church cannot be used for the traditional liturgy, nor can a newly ordained priest celebrate that liturgy, without permission from the Dicastery for Divine Worship.
