Today is the anniversary of the happy day when Summorum Pontificum went into force.
A lot of progress has been made but there is still a great deal to do.
But consider the fact that, even though many seminaries and even bishops are resisting the formation of priests for the whole of their Roman Rite, after five years, all the major seminarians in formation now have not known a time as seminarians when the provisions were not in effect.
It seems to me that, though sometimes it seems as if the wheels are spinning once in a while, this is going to get traction soon. And when it does….
Perhaps we shall see some great gains during this Year of Faith? Perhaps you can redouble your efforts to promote and stimulate and bring about a wider implementation of the provisions of the Motu Proprio.
Please say a pray for Benedict XVI today, who gave priests and laity alike this great gift.
