BBC attacks the Traditional Mass

Briefing: it is pretty surprising that the BBC should take an interest in the Pope's forthcoming 'motu proprio' liberalising the Traditional Mass, but on closer inspection their interest is limited to a single prayer in the Good Friday Liturgy, for the benefit of the Jews, which is used as evidence of the Church's anti-semitic history. You couldn't make it up.

Pope Leo XIII's Prayer to St Michael

Holy Michael, Archangel, defend us in the day of battle. Be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him, we humbly pray, and do thou, Prince of the Heavenly Host, by the power of God, thrust down to Hell Satan, and all wicked spirits who wander through the world for the ruin of souls. Amen
