1. From Andrea Tornielli's interview with the Pope's secretary, Monsignor Georg Gänswein, published in today's edition of Il Giornale, a question on the reception of Summorum Pontificum:
Is the Pope concerned with some negative reactions [in the reception] of the "Motu proprio" on the old missal?
[Gänswein:] I have noticed with some surprise, closely following the press clippings and the public reactions to the "Motu proprio", that there have not been truly negative reactions. There do not seem to be, to me, explicitly negative reactions; the few critical opinions I have noticed are quite normal and acceptable in the sum of opinions which have been heard. I have nevertheless noticed that the text, and the letter of the Pope to the Bishops which accompanied it, have been received with great understanding and objectivity. We hope that the reception may render good fruits and the expected results.
2. A text of great historical interest: the Pope's last answer in the meeting with the clergy of the Dioceses of Belluno-Feltre and Treviso (in English) on the difficult historical aftermath of the Second Vatican Council.
