Lend your voice to the sensus fidelium

[Many are likely aware of this initiative already, but it is worth mentioning here I think. I don't believe Benedict will be sway by petitions, however, I do believe there is merit in the faithful letting their voices and thoughts be known on this subject.

Remember as well, that signing on to this simply suggests that you support the allowance for the classical liturgy to flourish and have life of its own. In other words, one can be firmly rooted in the reform of the reform, as an example, or in the Eastern Churches, and yet support this initiative on principle. Lending your name to this suggests only that you are open to the classical liturgy as something beneficial for the life of the Church and generally, regardless of which liturgical rite you find yourself worshipping in on a given Sunday.

Please consider supporting it. Here was the initiative.]
