The Boston Globe in their usual, "we have no idea what we're talking about but people read us anyway" brand of journalism on the Motu Propio. We are reassured that nothing will change and that if any crazed Traditionalists are nervy enough to ask for the Latin Mass the diocese is ready. Ready to say no. Unless you're a schismatic sedevacantist in which case they may think about it.
Check out this statement- I've highlighted the important words:
"Clearly, the pope is attempting to respond pastorally to a small group of disaffected former Catholics who were very disturbed by the Vatican II liturgical reforms, but potentially this runs the risk of being misinterpreted as calling into question the Second Vatican Council," said the Rev. Keith J. Pecklers , a professor of liturgy at the Pontifical Gregorian University in Rome.
Some scholars fear that advocates of the Latin Mass also want the Vatican to roll back its efforts at interfaith and ecumenical relations, lay participation, and other changes since the Second Vatican Council. And the Anti-Defamation League has objected to wider use of the old rite because it includes on Good Friday a prayer for the conversion of the Jews.
Desiring to worship according to the Latin Mass is a transparent way of proving that you are anti-Semitic just like saying, "Merry Christmas" and praying for someone's conversion- just another hate crime.
We haven't been able to fool anyone. The Globe has seen right through us- crazy, disturbed, disaffected, anti-Semites. The only thing left to look forward to now is an editorial by James Carroll.
