Msgr. Guido Pozzo, den nye sekretæren i den pavelige kommisjonen Ecclesia Dei (som har å gjøre med feiringa av den tradisjonelle latinske messen), blir spurt om pave Bendikts motu proprio fra 2007 om å “frigjøre” den gamle messen, skal tolkes restriktivt – slik at bare de som tidligere har hatt en lengsel etter denne messen (fra før 1969) her får muligheten til å oppleve denne. Nei, er svaret, også unge mennesker etc. som ønsker å delta i denne messen, har et krav på å få sine ønsker oppfylt – av sin sogneprest eller biskop. Fra NLM-bloggen:
Monsignor, a widespread restrictive interpretation of the motu proprio argues that the Papal provision is primarily if not exclusively, directed towards those groups and institutes that were already attached to the traditional form, and is not, by contrast, intended in any way to promote the extraordinary form. To this had already answered Card. Castrillón Hoyos, saying in London, in June 2008, that the Pope would actually like to have the ‘Gregorian Rite’ in all the parishes. What is your opinion?
The Motu Proprio is addressed to all the Catholic faithful who desire the extraordinary form of the Roman liturgy, not just to those who, prior to its promulgation, were attached to the ancient form of the Roman rite. Certainly it does intend to accomodate these latter and to heal old wounds, but the purpose of the document is also to allow the spreading of the extraordinary form, for the benefit of those who do not know it yet (for being too young to have had it experienced), or of those who rediscover with joy the Mass of their youth. The ever increasing spread of this liturgical treasure, [sc. which is] the Church’s patrimony, can bring many benefits, spiritual and vocational, also through the mutual enrichment between the two forms of the Roman rite.
