Latin Mass Catholics change their name to ‘Latinx’ to get support from Pope Francis

THE VATICAN—Following a clamp down by Pope Francis on the Latin Mass in the church, traditional Catholics are fighting back.

Today, those who participate in the extraordinary form of the Mass will call it “Latinx” from now on, thanks to a tip from Stephen Herreid.

Pope Francis has already expressed enthusiasm for the change.

“I’m very happy to see the people who celebrate the traditional form of the Mass get past their rigid ways,” the Pontiff said in an exclusive interview with Genesius Times.

In the recent motu proprio, Pope Francis said local bishops may designate one or more locations where the faithful adherents of traditional groups may gather for the eucharistic celebration, he declares, but “not however in the parochial churches.”

He has since said there are no restrictions on celebrating the Latinx Mass.
