In his press conference today, the President of the French Episcopal Conference, Cardinal Ricard, said, regarding the project of liberalization of the Traditional Mass, exactly the same things which he had already stated in his Saturday address, with almost exactly the same words.
"The project of motu proprio will be the object of various consultations. We may convey, from now on, our fears and desires."
Meanwhile, Sophie de Ravinel informs at Le Figaro (via Le Forum Catholique) that:
"Cardinal Jean-Pierre Ricard is about to go to Rome to rework, with other Cardinals, the first draft of the text regarding the liberalization of the Tridentine Latin Mass [sic]. The members of the Ecclesia Dei commission -- one of which is the Archbishop of Bordeaux -- will, at the request of Benedict XVI, work on the dossier, up to now entrusted only to Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos ... . No deadline has been set."
