Sunday sermons, weekday observations
Will consult with U.S. bishops’ committee and its own divine worship office while reviewing the pope’s recent statement, noting
. . . that the Holy Father provided the local ordinary [bishop] exclusive competence for use of the Extraordinary Form [Latin mass] in his diocese,
And adding, crucially, that Cardinal O’Malley
wishes to assure all the faithful of his concern for their spiritual and pastoral needs. In light of the pending consultations he is making no changes to the current practice.
Quite properly. A thank-you, Holy Father. We will give what you say the deepest consideration.
