CNA: New appointments mark bold papal move for Liturgical reform

I'm sure this is all just a coincidence . After all, Summorum Pontificum was released last year and that is the end of that. No "big deal," as they say: A hardly noticed brief note from the Vatican's Press office announced the appointment of new consultants for the office of Liturgical Celebrations of the Supreme Pontiff. It did not mention, however, the importance of the new appointees. The new consultants include Monsignor Nicola Bux, professor at the Theological Faculty of Puglia (Southern Italy,) and author of several books on liturgy, especially on the Eucharist. Bux recently finish a new book "Pope Benedict’s Reform," printed by the Italian publishing house Piemme, scheduled to hit the shelves in December. The list of news consultants includes Fr. Mauro Gagliardi, an expert in Dogmatic theology and professor at the Legionaries of Christ's Pontifical Athenaeum “Regina Apostolorum” ; Opus Dei Spanish priest Juan José Silvestre Valor, prof

Catholic World News: The Pope's direct challenge; the French bishops' tepid response

Catholic World News has an incredibly insightful article on the message conveyed by His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI, to the French Hierarchy . This is an excellent story and a MUST read. Reading between the lines, the full story emerges. Here is a snippet: Reading between the lines, it seems clear that the Pope was sending a message to French bishops, and others who have resisted implementation of the motu proprio . Even by their own standards, he was saying, they should "tolerate" the liturgical form that many faithful Catholics embrace. "There is no opposition between the liturgy renewed by Vatican II and this liturgy," the Pontiff assured his in-flight press conference. Thus there is no reason for hostility toward the extraordinary form. If that message was conveyed subtly during the Pope's trip toward Paris, it was delivered quite explicitly on Sunday when the Holy Father addressed the members of the French hierarchy in a meeting at Lourdes. Noting that

Excellent News on the TLM from the ADW and on the Practicum to Train Priests in the Usus Antiquior

I received the email below from a friend in Maryland. Please check out the photos of the Practicum held in the Archdiocese of D.C. and the First Mass by Fr. White. I am delighted to post such excellent news! Thanks, JR! You should be aware of the following: Pictures from the ADW Practicum for the Extraordinary Form : and First Mass by Father White Father White attended the practicum referred to in the first post. I believe another priest who attended will be celebrating his first mass this Sunday in southern Maryland. It would be good if you posted these on your blog. The posts are from the blog, Meeting Christ in the Liturgy, done by a local priest and Navy Chaplain . I don’t know his name. You may know him. Now that something is happening in the ADW, I think it would be good to publicize the masses said by these 15 priests to increase attendance and give them encouragement. JR
