At LifeSite there is an interview with Peter Kwasniewski. He opines that the decentralization of authority in liturgical matters could recreate an environment in the Church much like the 70’s.
Of course that would accelerate the growth of desire for traditional forms. Younger Catholics don’t have the baggage of the 70’s. Nor do they pine for those halcyon days of protests, revolt against authority and Vatican II.
The latest move of Pope Francis with Magnum principium was a harbinger. His Holiness seems to be lining up pretty closely with the will of the wealthy German bishops conference. If that is indeed the case, then we are in for a rough ride, quod Deus avertat.
Now we wait for the next portent in this series of signs of the times.
As I put on my haruspex cap and slit the belly of this bull, one such portent could be a project to rebuild the Temple in Jerusalem or, in a less apocalyptic way, a change of personnel in, say, the Office of Pontifical Liturgical Celebrations.
