Those of you who have been following the reaction to Pope Benedict's release of the Motu Proprio last weekend are well aware that Father Z is the man to see when you want information as to what is going on. Fortunately, or unfortunately, there are so many posts over there on his blog, W.D.T.P.R.S., I decided to do a quickie index that I will attempt to keep up once a week or so as long as there seems to be interest, by me, if nobody else.
Father Z, a good St Agnes boy, fluent, to say the least, in Latin, and in Vatican-speak, thoroughly analyzes the world-wide reactions to "Summorum Pontificum" the Motu Proprio's title, which frees up the use of the 1962 Latin Mass this coming September.
