You may not get it here first, but you will get it when it comes from the horse's mouth (MOTU PROPRIO - YES THAT ONE, ah maybe not)


I know other blogs had news paper press articles from secret sources, but I prefer to get it from the Vatican, so here is:

My Humble Translation:

Communique from the Press Office of the Holy See:

Yesterday afternoon, there was a meeting, presided by the Cardinal Secretary of State, in which it was presented to the representatives of the various (diverse) Bishops' Conferences the content and the spirit of the announced "Motu Proprio" of the Holy Father on th euse of the Missal Promulgated by John XXIII in 1962.

The Holy Father greeted those present and joined with them in a profound conversation for about an hour. The pubblication of the document - which will be accompanied by am ample (extensive) personal letter (written) by the Holy Father to individual bishops - is expected in a few days when the document itself will be sent to all the Bishops with the indications (information) of its subsequent coming into effect (force).

From the: Vatican Press Office Webpage

Si è svolta ieri pomeriggio in Vaticano una riunione, presieduta dal Cardinale Segretario di Stato, in cui è stato illustrato ai rappresentanti di diverse conferenze episcopali il contenuto e lo spirito dell’annunciato "Motu proprio" del Santo Padre sull’uso del Messale promulgato da Giovanni XXIII nel 1962.

Il Santo Padre si è recato a salutare i presenti e si è intrattenuto con loro in un’approfondita conversazione per circa un’ora. La pubblicazione del documento – che sarà accompagnato da un’ampia lettera personale del Santo Padre ai singoli Vescovi - è prevista entro alcuni giorni, quando il documento stesso sarà stato inviato a tutti i Vescovi con la indicazione della sua successiva entrata in vigore.

The Vatican's English translation of its own communique from (VIS-Press Releases) :

VATICAN CITY, JUN 28, 2007 (VIS) - Given below is the text of a communique released today by the Holy See Press Office concerning Benedict XVI's forthcoming "Motu Proprio" on the use of the Missal promulgated by Blessed John XXIII in 1962.

"Yesterday afternoon in the Vatican, a meeting was held under the presidency of the Cardinal Secretary of State in which the content and spirit of the Holy Father's forthcoming 'Motu Proprio' on the use of the Missal promulgated by John XXIII in 1962 was explained to representatives from various episcopal conferences. The Holy Father also arrived to greet those present, spending nearly an hour in deep conversation with them.

"The publication of the document - which will be accompanied by an extensive personal letter from the Holy Father to individual bishops - is expected within a few days, once the document itself has been sent to all the bishops with an indication of when it will come into effect." OP/MOTU PROPRIO/...VIS 070628 (180)

Still My imput

Well, the "traditional missal" to be released is that of Blessed John XXIII. Not exactly, the missal of Pius V. I am curious what the differences are. There have to be some differences or there wouldn't be differences in the name. I think J23's missal was even in shorter use than the Pauline missal.

Now I'm totally confused.
