As of right now, I am ecstatic over this article that was published earlier today on “What Does the Prayer Really Say?” (http://wdtprs.com/blog/2008/06/uk-card-castrillon-hoyos-tlm-in-%e2%80%9cnot-many-parishes-%e2%80%93-all-parishes/). Apparently, the Motu Proprio does not simply mean that the Latin Mass will be celebrated in many parishes, but in all parishes as Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos distinctly says.

One should also notice that there is mention of a stable group. This has been quite a problem among Catholics because many of us have no clue what a stable group means. In terms of statistics, it could be either very high or very low. Heck, it could be the size of a quorum. What Hoyos has said is that it could be as little as three people. Therefore, the priests must grant the Mass to anybody who asks.

You know, I had good feelings about this whole Motu Proprio business for a long time, but now I think that it will really take off.

Once again, three cheers for the Pope and Cardinal Hoyos!
