In Article 4 of Summorum pontificum, no presbyter my use the "Motu P" Mass unless qualified to do so.
Then it's up to His Excellency to make the proper arrangements for his priests who wish to celebrate this Mass to be properly trained, isn't it?

I mean, to do otherwise would simply be to make himself into a roadblock instead of a clear passage, wouldn't it?

If you ain't part of the solution, my dear Bishop Trautman, then you're part of the problem. We have a whole new couple of generations coming up who don't buy into the "Spirit of Vatican II" balderdash, and your time is limited---so either lead, follow, or get out of the way.
You can have freedom of speech, or you can have political correctness. You can't have both.
