Vatican has begun preparing a follow-up to Summorum Pontificum

Have you seen the reports that the Vatican has started to draft an instruction on how to implement Pope Benedict XVI's motu proprio on the Latin Mass?

The New Oxford Review Daily Feed of Jan. 4 quotes an article in The Canadian Press (click on this post's title). That article says:

"The Vatican has begun drafting a document to elaborate on Pope Benedict's recent liberalization of the old Latin Mass because some bishops are either ignoring his move or misinterpreting it, Vatican officials said."

The Vatican has given no publication date for the instruction.

Let's hope and pray that this instruction will foster obedience and overcome the party line of liberal bishops in California and around the USA: "The motu proprio will have little effect here," "Only a tiny minority wants the Latin Mass," "Our priests don't know how to say it."

More liberal-bishop party line: "We have one parish that has the Latin Mass, and that satisfies the motu proprio's intent," "We have to concentrate on what the great majority of the people want, not on the wishes of a few."

yeps, and only a bunch of old bitter people want it too...

Hopefully it comes out in the format as mentioned in the Curt Jester

Dear Joe of St. Therese,

Yes, that's another part of their party line, that only older people want the Latin Mass. Fortunately, the facts easily disprove it.

Yes, the Jester's format was funny, all right: A "Motu Proprio for Dummies" book.
