Rorate Caeli

Buon Natale!

Interesting interview granted by Cardinal Cañizares Llovera to Il Giornale's Andrea Tornielli (in Italian), but, honestly... not worth the time needed for translating it on Christmas Eve: no unambiguous declaration of the complete reform of all post-Conciliar liturgical books (just of the introductory texts, such as the IGMR-GIRM,  rubrics and praenotanda), the usual acknowledgment that the liturgical "renewal" had some positive fruits. Everyone is better off with a Google Translate version of the interview...

A very happy and holy Christmas to all!

are you really surprised by this outcome ?

by the way who has ever heard a word falling from the mouth of the secretary of CDW ? The choice was obviously to replace the active and talkative now cardinal Ranjith by a mute Dominican.

Reforming IGRM to make the Ad Orientem posture more explicit would in fact be a big step!
