A kind reader alerts us to bad news from Portugal:
From an interview of the Portugese Magazine Expresso (23 November) with the Archbishop of Braga, H.E. Most Rev. Jorge Ortiga (President of the Portuguese Episcopal Conference) we read the following (not my translation):
[Expresso] The return of the Latin masses has generated contradictory reactions. Portugal seems indifferent relatively to this decision of the Pope.
[Archbishop Jorge Ortiga] The document of Benedict XVI authorizes the Latin Masses, but with many restrictions. There is a difficulty from the start, because priests currently have scarce knowledge of Latin. It is a possibility which seems very remote among us, though it may make more sense in other countries. The Latin Mass may be understood, for example, in areas where there are linguistic divisions, but as long as this practice is not seen as a means of affirmation of pre-Vatican II Council mentalities.
There are really very FEW restrictions, so the answer was misleading.
And what is a "pre-Vatican II mentality"?
And this is a diocese where there is preserved a historical Latin Rite, the Braga Rite.
