Traditionis Custodes


I found this story on Gloria TV.  The picture below shows a group of people kneeling in the rain outside a chapel where the Latin Mass is being offered.  Clearly the chapel is too small to accommodate the number of people wanting to attend.  The irony is that there is a large church only a few yards away.

The picture was taken in the Warsaw-Praga Diocese in Poland, where the bishop, Romuald Kominski, has taken a hard line on implementing Traditionis Custodes.
