The great Msgr. Nichola Bux spoke.
I have written of Msgr. Bux before. He is a liturgical scholar who, among other things, serves as a consultant for the Office of Pontifical Ceremonies and other dicasteries. You may recall the BUX PROTOCOL.
Msgr. Bux …
… began his intervention by saying that the French bishops, who like to interact with non-Christians, ought also to dialogue with Catholics and that they must not be afraid of the sheep of their own flock! They should confront reality and not the perception that they have of it. He recalled that the Extraordinary Form is for all of the People of God, and not just a minority, and that it ought to serve as a training for the better celebration of the Ordinary Form. He indicated that, in Italy, the implementation of the Motu proprio is done through priests. He therefore admonished priests to be courageous in the implementation of this text. Finally, he added that the refusal of the Extraordinary Form could be considered as a rupture of communion with the Pope.
“Refusal of the Extraordinary Form could be considered as a rupture of communion with the Pope.”
