Rorate Caeli

Not exactly urgent...

...but we will mention it, anyway, just for the record, which we like to keep here.

It was mentioned by some in early October that the Secretary of the Pontifical Commission "Ecclesia Dei", Monsignor Camille Perl, had said that a measure "favoring" the Traditional Latin Mass would be taken by the Pope. This was finally confirmed in the recently-released periodical newsletter of the Abbey of Sainte-Madeleine du Barroux, where Perl spent a few days in October and where he "confirm[ed]the will of the Holy Father to make something soon to ease the access to the ancient form of the Roman Rite" (p. 3).

Ex ore infantium, Deus, et lactentium
perfecisti laudem propter inimicos tuos.


  1. So in other words, there's still no news, but this time it's confirmed. :-)


  2. Well, at least the signs continue to be positive, positivistic and consistent. Keep praying.

  3. Oh, good heavens, not more Positivism! :-)

  4. "et encourage ainsi notre attachement à celle-ci."

    "and encourage[d] thus our attachment to it."

    But who encouraged them? Msgr. Perl or the Holy Father?

  5. Quite so, Poeta! I say, this is becomming positively cloying!!

    [twee Terry Thomas accent required :-)]

  6. Certainly not Mgr. Perl!
