The Knights of Malta and the Tridentine Mass - Part 2

Image may contain: text
The letter by Grand Master Dalla Torre that suppresses the Tridentine Mass.
More than six years ago, the then President of Pro Tridentina (Malta) had indicated in this article that a one off Tridentine Mass in Valletta had been allowed with restrictions imposed on a delegation of the Knights of St. John.
 
A controversy had occurred several months after this event as was outlined here. Unfortunately, once again, this organisation was proven right.
 
A letter issued by the Grand Master of the S.M.O.M., Giacomo Dalla Torre, has decreed that the Tridentine Mass is being suppressed by the once-Catholic Order with immediate effect. Allegedly to "guarantee the cohesion and communion of the Order!" This goes in direct contravention of the spirit of Summorum Pontificum and surely Benedict XVI is not happy with this event.
 
What a betrayal by the once glorious Order that defended Christendom!
