Nicola Bux, the well-known scholar, author, and consultant to the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, speaks to the Mexican newspaper Milenio on the Maciel affair. The most interesting part of the article, though, is related to another kind of purification -- the purification of Holy Liturgy.
[Nicola] Bux, author of the acclaimed book "The Lord of Mysteries: The Eucharist and Relativism" and professor of comparative liturgy, states, regarding this theme, that ''the liturgy of Pope Benedict XVI will be more spiritual, without post-Conciliar abuses. Following the Second Vatican Council, there was much confusion in the liturgy. Much of the responsibility lies with the diocesan bishops, who are not vigilant. I believe that Benedict XVI will renew the value of Latin, a language which was never abolished, and the Gregorian repertory.["]
And his words proved true. This Thursday, the Secretariat of the Synod of Bishops assembled at the Vatican to develop and approve the schema of the [post-Synodal] "Apostolic Exhortation", the papal document regarding the liturgy. Everything seems to indicate the solemnity and ceremony of another era shall be return to the Mass. This document is expected in October, along with the indult favoring the Tridentine Mass.
