"A document has been signed..."

Rorate Caeli are reporting the following in addition:

"One of our most trustworthy sources has finally broken the general silence and has confirmed that truly a document of great importance on the liturgy of the Latin Church "has been signed".

"However, just as yesterday we mentioned "...the Rite of the Mass...", this source cannot or will not confirm if this document of great importance impacts (a) the Traditional Roman Rite (or, as it is usually called in more adequate terms, "the liturgical rite and discipline, according to the prescriptions of Saint Pius V, with the adaptations introduced by his successors up to Blessed John XXIII"); or (b) the New Roman rite (which, regarding the rite of the mass, was approved on Holy Thursday, 1969, by the Apostolic Constitution "Missale Romanum", of Paul VI); or (c) both rites."

Another comment in this same post about the Vatican Radio report we've been hearing about:

"We thank the dear commentator who was able to transcribe what would have been said at Radio Vaticana, though apparently later expunged from the official transcript. Amidst the report on the conclusions of the Assembly of the French Episcopal Conference regarding "the Traditionalist question" ... the reporter would have said: "...Ciò, soprattutto, in vista della pubblicazione del motu proprio del Papa sul rito della Messa..." (That is: "This [the measures towards Traditionalists] especially in view of the publication of the Motu Proprio of the Pope on the rite of the Mass.")."
