The Master of Papal Liturgical Celebrations, Monsignor Guido Marini, granted an interview to Andrea Tornielli, published today in Il Giornale - of which two questions could not be published in print, and were posted by Tornielli in his blog, including the following:
Will Benedict XVI celebrate a Mass using the ancient rite, liberalized by him with the motu proprio?
"I do not know it and I in not in a position to answer it. I believe that a serene, ecclesiological, and non-ideological reading of this decision of the Pontiff ought to be important. The liturgy of the Church, as in any case all of her life, is made up of continuity: I speak of development on continuity. This means that the Church proceeds in her historical path without losing sight of her own roots and of her own living tradition: that may demand, in some cases, even the recovery of precious and important elements which, along the path, went astray, were forgotten or that the passage of time rendered less luminous in their authentic meaning. It seems to me that the Motu proprio moves in that direction: reaffirming with great clarity that there is continuity in the liturgical life of the Church, without rupture."
