Index to "Father Z's" Analysis of Reactions to "Summorum Pontificum" Document that Authorizes Greater Use of the 1962 Latin Mass

Updated July 20

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.
