But I think you give some of the people at Rorate Caeli too much credit. Hey, that&#39;s just me.David L Alexanderhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/13871706129906941567noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6570809348314913884.post-22920015037653835992010-06-09T16:33:52.684-04:002010-06-09T16:33:52.684-04:00Thanks David.

There are good discussions of this aspect of the issue ongoing at both RorateCaeli and WDTPRS.<br /><br />I tend to think the reticence is political, not liturgical.Brian Kopphttp://www.blogger.com/profile/02575906703463685178noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6570809348314913884.post-59402794334306634462010-06-09T15:27:46.374-04:002010-06-09T15:27:46.374-04:00That's "Yes," not "es."That&#39;s &quot;Yes,&quot; not &quot;es.&quot;David L Alexanderhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/13871706129906941567noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6570809348314913884.post-68188636785490012952010-06-09T15:27:27.394-04:002010-06-09T15:27:27.394-04:00es, His Holiness celebrates the Traditional Mass p...es, His Holiness celebrates the Traditional Mass privately. He also celebrated it publicly while still a cardinal, so we can establish that he’s not hostile to it. Why not a Traditional Papal Mass?<br /><br />It’s probably very simple. Doing a Papal Mass in the ordinary form of the Roman Rite is a complicated affair. The extraordinary form is likely to be even more complicated. There’s a lot to learn, a lot of people to do the learning who are not always in one place all the time, and a long time since it was last done. What’s more, to do so would require that preparations be a major priority for an extended length of time.<br /><br />Sometimes the best explanation for something is the simplest, or the most obvious.David L Alexanderhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/13871706129906941567noreply@blogger.com
