Moto Propio on TLM to come soon after Christmas!

MOTU PROPIO AFTER CHRISTMAS, APOSTOLIC EXHORTATION IN JANUARY

Rome, Dec. 15, 2006 (CNA) - Sources close to the Vatican have told Catholic News Agency that the Motu Propio by which Pope Benedict XVI would allow for the universal use of the Missal of St. Pius V may be published after Christmas, while the Post-Synodal Apostolic Exhortation on the Eucharist could come in mid-January 2007.

Sources confirmed the recent statements to reporters by Cardinal Jorge Medina Estevez, who told them after participating in a meeting of the Ecclesia Dei Commission, where the text of the Motu Propio was reviewed, that the document would come soon.

The declaration would allow the Mass of St. Pius V—often called the Tridentine Mass—to be celebrated freely and do away with the current requirement to have the explicit permission of the local bishop. The Motu Propio does not address the canonical status of the Society of St. Pius X, the schismatic organization founded by Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre.

The Apostolic Exhortation on the Eucharist, according to the same sources, has already been finished by Pope Benedict XVI and is being translated into the different languages in which it will be presented.

The document, which sources say will be issued after January 15, reaffirms the Church’s commitment to a celibate priesthood, encourages the use of Latin in liturgical celebrations, and even requests that seminarians learn the language as part of their formation.

It will also promote the recovery of Gregorian chant and sacred polyphonic music as a replacement to modern music, which would result in a gradual elimination of musical instruments that are “inappropriate” for the solemnity and reverence of the Eucharistic celebration.

The two words in red above say it all, its really an “I will believe it when I see it” situation. There has been too many “may be” and “after this date” reports that get people’s hopes up and then they dont come around.

Maybe before Easter?

What A Huge Lie That Was!!!.

What lie? It didn’t say BEFORE Christmas, did it? In fact, I don’t didn’t see the word “before” at all in there.

Why? Is this a requirement of some kind?

Seems as if this issue has been resolved to some degree already, if people had been paying attention instead of constantly harassing them.

Isn’t this ancient history, and proven wrong, wrong?
For the 5th time: Forget the M-P on the indult.

Actually I cannot forgot any M.P. I am getting slightly weary and even a little firghtened…I am starting to get conspiracy theory minded…way off in the corner of my imagination I have a vision of wicked churchmen keeping the Holy Father in a jail cell deep inside some secret place inside the vatican…and burning all evidence of a M.P.

OK A little imaginative … but the thought of people trying to prevent the M.P. has popped into my head the last few days.

I think the Motu Proprio will come out as soon as the world keeps quiet about the Motu Proprio. I think the Pope knows about all this talk and he’s just delaying it until he thinks he should let it out. After all, the Pope watches TV and maybe he knows all that stuff on the blogs and the web. Maybe he’s read some of this stuff. Maybe if we give the Pope the silent treatment about the Motu Proprio then maybe he will release it.

:thumbsup: :thumbsup: :thumbsup:

I officially pronounce this the “Energizer Rumor”. It keeps on going and going and going…:rolleyes:

Uh, has anyone noticed that this article is dated last year. This isn’t what’s supposed to happen this year. It’s what was supposed to happen this year and didn’t as it didn’t on Corpus Christi, feast of Christ the King, Holy Week, etc. The speculation seems a little silly. Can’t we just pray for it, send our communications to the Holy Father and wait for it rather than play the great guessing game?:shrug:

Again, I don’t believe this going to happen. Sorry!:nope:

Just another date… well, we’ll see when the time comes, six months. :rolleyes:

Again, this is an old article. The date for it has long passed.

It looks like we will be able to just recycle this thread (and the MP predictions) every year. :yawn:

I’ve always thought CNA is an unreliable source.

Hmmm…Maybe if I just said that rumor has it it would happen August 23, 2017 we can stop hearing the rumor reports for awhile?:thumbsup:

Well, on this one blog… :wink:

I hear he voted for Sanjaya on American Idol. :smiley:
