The new “pipe” (some of you will get that) of the Holy See’s communication commisariat issued an editorial about the formal suppression of my old office, the Pontifical Commission “Ecclesia Dei”. Well… my old office is still there. And my old desk, etc.
Tornielli made two points.
First, because there are far more and widespread numbers of the older form being celebrated there is less pastoral need for what the PCED was doing. Thanks, SP.
Also, because most of the problems with the reconciliation of the SSPX have to do with doctrinal issues, it seems best to put the whole thing in the doctrinal congregation.
There are problems here and there are advantages.
Tornielli made the point that the same personnel are kept on in the new section of the CDF… and the PCED was already a section of the CDF.
Remember, the PCED – which was born as an ad hoc Commission – was already\Po absorbed into the CDF.
Getting my drift?
Some idiots out there will run around with their hair on fire, colliding from the left and from the right. One idiot shouted BOOM. But everything he does is for attention, merely. He has kinder to feed, I guess.
Let’s see what happens.
I am tempted to say “plus ça change…”
