SP November 8, 2007

Archbp. of Westminster on Summorum Pontificum

Fr. Z. gives it the once over.

A breakthrough at last
On 18 November, the Bishop of Northampton, Peter Doyle, will administer Confirmation in the Traditional Rite at Our Lady of Perpetual Succour, Chesham Bois, Bucks. And he will personally celebrate the old Latin Mass as a regular Sunday service - the first diocesan bishop to do so for many years.

Bishop Conry tries to put his foot down
U.K. Bishop says “There is something of a contradiction when you suggest that the ‘extraordinary form’ (as the Holy Father puts it) might actually become the ‘ordinary’ form by taking place on a Sunday morning instead of the “ordinary” Sunday Mass. This is not envisaged by the document.” Huh?

The same EXTRAORDINARY like in EXTRAORDINARY Ministers of Holy Communion becoming Ordinary?
I really do feel "some" people are scared of this mass (1962). But the good news is, they probably won't be around when/if it becomes "ordinary" so what is the hurt?

"This is not envisaged.."

Bishops' should be discouraged from using this quaint expression.
