New Motu Proprio

Chiding both sides in the furious debate over the wider availability of the 1962 Missal for voicing “very divergent reactions ranging from joyful acceptance to harsh opposition, about a plan whose contents were in reality unknown,” according to an advance copy of the documents obtained exclusively by Whispers, Benedict yields a clear verdict as the “fruit of much reflection, numerous consultations and prayer.”

IOW, something for everyone to hate. Or gripe about, at least. After all, we ARE Catholics.

It'll be interesting. I can't think of any priest I've worked with (not counting the occasional wedding) who would like this. Well, maybe that LOC priest I used to work with. Anyhow, some of the guys couldn't say a Latin Mass if their lives depended on it.

Interesting times.
