Why Pope Benedict is releasing the Motu Proprio

Dr. Malcolm C. Harris Sr. over at Ex Corde Ecclesiae has an excellent post explaining the errors during the writing and promulgation of the Novus Ordo, and what he senses Pope Benedict intends to happen when both the Tridentine and Novus Ordo masses live side by side for a generation or so. It gives me great hope for renewal of the liturgy.

Thank you for your kind complements.

We have been blessed with a pope who has a profound understanding of the liturgy, was an ardent supporter of the Liturgical Movement, was a peritus at Vatican II, and understands how the Liturgical Movement was hijacked by liturgists with an agenda.

The Holy Spirit works in odd ways. I have been praying for our liturgy for some time. It is a cause that may seem less important than others, but the Council taught us that the church's liturgy is "the font from which all her power flows." Just as Dorothy Day’s pursuit of social justice was sustained by the mass, so too must our efforts in the pro-life movement be sustained from the same source.

The Liturgical Movement’s long term success in the liturgy’s renewal is a cause worth praying for.

I believe in life, I have always felt it in my heart. Life is birth, children, people, love from conception from cradle to grave life is absolute. It is non negotiable
