Ecclesia Dei Secretary:
Instruction on the Motu Proprio to be released "shortly"

Monsignor Camille Perl, Secretary of the Pontifical Commission "Ecclesia Dei", in a brief interview to religious news website Petrus, dismissed changes in the Good Friday prayer for the conversion of the Jews ("It is not an urgent problem," according to Perl, for whom the whole debate is a "contrived problem", regarding which "for the moment, nothing has been done and, probably, nothing ever will").

The instruction on the application of the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum was also mentioned:

Monsignor Perl also explains that the upcoming "Instruction", announced by Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone, for the clarification of some aspects of the Motu Proprio [Summorum Pontificum], will not mention the matter of the prayer for the Jews. The "Instruction" will be released "shortly" [prossimamente], even though the exact date has not yet been chosen.
