Can it be true!?!

Catholic World News is reporting that Pope Benedict XVI is preparing for publication a new papal document which would give all priests permission to say the Mass of St. Pius V (which is in Latin).

This move would be, in essence, a universal indult to say the Mass in Latin. The prior indult of 1988 required the permission of the local Bishop.

I wonder! We'll soon find out. :)

Well, the scoop on the Catholic bloggosphere seems to be that something will be released in November.

Now we have to find priests who are willing and able to do this. Many (even some bishops sadly enough) don't even speak Latin anymore.

I so pray that this will happen. Hey you and I have Black Labs. My boy is Max and he is so cool. You can visit him on my flickr on my site if you wish. I think they are great dogs.

Cool! I dont really know what Sweetie is. She is mostly black with webbed feet, so we assume there is lab in there somewhere.

Dymphna's favorite quotes

"Slavery ended in medieval Europe only because the church extended its sacraments to all slaves and then managed to impose a ban on the enslavement of Christians (and of Jews). Within the context of medieval Europe, that prohibition was effectively a rule of universal abolition. "— Rodney Stark
