If you care to, you can “sign” your name (how that’s done electronically, I’m not sure) to a document that tries to grease the wheel for the supposed upcoming motu proprio which will liberalize the usage of the 1962 Missal.
One hope caught my eye:
(That … the) ancient liturgical usages of the West might be fostered as living forms of worship in the Church, enjoying full right of citizenship in the same – the classical Roman rite as well as the ancient liturgical rites and uses of the religious orders and primatial sees which formed a part of the living, organic and legitimate liturgical diversity of the Church until recent times.
In order for a “usage” to be a “living form of worship,” it would seem to require a certain mutability in face of the changes of the times, an adaptation to the secondary goal or worship, the sanctification of the people. I’ll repeat what I wrote for this survey, that the Roman Rite liturgy heading into Vatican II was in need of reform. The council called for it explicitly:
In order that the Christian people may more certainly derive an abundance of graces from the sacred liturgy, holy Mother Church desires to undertake with great care a general restoration of the liturgy itself. For the liturgy is made up of immutable elements divinely instituted, and of elements subject to change. These not only may but ought to be changed with the passage of time if they have suffered from the intrusion of anything out of harmony with the inner nature of the liturgy or have become unsuited to it.
In this restoration, both texts and rites should be drawn up so that they express more clearly the holy things which they signify; the Christian people, so far as possible, should be enabled to understand them with ease and to take part in them fully, actively, and as befits a community. (SC 21)
And I would find the movement for a “traditional Latin” or “classical” Mass more convincing if at least a substantial subset of its proponents were open to the reforms of Vatican II.
So you think Annibale Bugnini was the devil incanrate. Fine. I know people who believe in aliens and UFO’s. Just read Sacrosanctum Concilium, and come up with your own approach for aggiornamento where liturgy is concerned. Meanwhile, don’t feed us this nonsense:
(W)e believe that the presence of the classical form of the Roman liturgy in broader ecclesial and parish life will positively contribute to the ongoing efforts to implement the liturgical reforms promulgated by the Second Vatican Council
… if you’re not prepared to take a serious look at “liturgical reform” yourselves.
