(kreuz.net) The Traditionalists have to "recognize" the New Mass.
That was in the words of greeting by Secretary of State Tarcisio Bertone to the Pilgrims of the Traditional Pilgrimage "Una cum Papa Nostro".
Its high point was a Pontifical High Mass in the Old Rite. It took place on Saturday afternoon in St. Peter's Basilica. The welcoming speech was read during the Mass.
The text appeared today at the Vatican newspaper 'L'Osservatore Romano'.
Cardinal Bertone explained that the Pope had responded to the expectations of the Traditionalists with the Motu Proprio 'Summorum Pontificum'.
He cited from the accompanying letter of the Pope on the Motu Proprio, which was directed to the Bishops.
There it was said that "the celebration is not to be excluded according to the new Liturgical books".
And: "A complete exclusion in any case would not even be in agreement with the recognition of the values and the sanctity of the rite in its new form." -- said the letter.
In contrast to that the Cardinal formulated in his words of greeting that "the value and sanctity of the Ordinary Form is to be completely recognized".
He required to bring the unity of faith in the year to expression.
Only: In the disintegrating Conciliar Church everyone believes what he wants.
