    You should really put together a 5-day Rome travel guide for those of us who will realistically get only a once in a lifetime shot at visiting.

    How timely this reflection is, Father. I’m reading Antonio Socci’s brilliant book “The Secret of Benedict XVI”- it is both fascinating and terribly disturbing at the same time. Socci uncovers so much about Benedict’s “resignation”, but essentially says: “Most probably, the unspeakable secret behind the pope emeritus’s choice to resign …is exquisitely spiritual. And in these times, which are so far from the spiritual dimension, his choice is not understood. …It may well be the same silent presence of Benedict XVI that until now has averted the most serious doctrinal rifts because-as long as he is alive- any false doctrine would be able to be delegitimized by one single word from him spoken before the eyes of the Christian people. …he wanted to send to those who hold power in the Vatican clear signals in defense of what is essential, what is divinely instituted, which is not subject to change by anyone, not even popes; in particular, the Eucharist and the Holy Mass, since in certain reforming circles, there are ideas being passed around of intercommunion with Protestants and perhaps even a liturgical reform that would change the Catholic Mass to be “ecumenical”.” Suppress the TLM?
