Tidings of Comfort and Joy?

Msgr. Ignacio Barreiro has a piece in Feb. 2006 newsletter of the Latin Mass Society of England and Wales looking a themes such as the recent Synod on the Eucharist, his view of how Pope Benedict is working to restore the liturgy and give guidance on the interpretation of Vatican II.

Again, linking to this article is not to suggest that I necessarily agree with every jot and tittle of the Monsignor's, however, it is interesting as a reflection.

One point which struck with particular truth, however, was this one:

"concrete juridical measures should be adopted to protect the rights of the faithful who are committed to preserving the classical liturgy of the Church. Many of them are suffering real distress."

I invite people to look at the entire piece here:
