1) In another entry I reported an opinion of a fellow journalist who suggested that 22 February would be a good date for the "Tridentine" Motu Proprio (frankly, I think any day would be a good day). A participant here pointed out that 22 February this year would also be the 45th anniversary of Blessed Pope John XXIII’s Apostolic Constitution Veterum Sapientia (On the Promotion of the Study of Latin), perhaps the most ignored major document in the history of the Church.
2) A commenter suggested a spiritual bouquet for the intention of this "Indult". I like the idea. How about everyone posting what it is they will do between now and, say, 22 February. Let’s focus on opening the hearts of those who oppose the document, rather than its immediate release.
It is hard to make a direct connection between the quantity of prayers for an intention and the effectiveness of such prayers. On the other hand, how can number of prayers offered make no difference?
For my part, I will do two things daily until 22 February for the softening of the hearts of those who are being obstinate in this matter or who may be causing an unreasonable delay in the issuing of the document. I will offer one decade of my daily rosary for the intention that God will soften hearts in this matter and I will say the Memorare each day for the same intention.
