Some Catholics have anxieties over Pope Fracis' liturgical orientation. Please go to the NCRegister link and read this in its entirety. It's not long, and is an exceptionally hopeful perspective.

"Qualms"? Sure. Pope Benedict XVI was deeply attuned to beauty and profundity of the traditional liturgy, as such, and greenlighted the Traditional Latin Mass around the world.

Pope Francis, though: some differences in style, but --- I'm convinced so far --- none in substance. Author Bermudsez' point is well-made: he defended the dignity of the Liturgy in a way that shows ultimate honor to Jesus Christ Our Lord.

Read this and hope.

In essentials, unity.
In doubtful matters, liberty
In all things, charity.

(

Attributed to St. Augustine, quoted by Pope John XXIII, 1959)

Good article. Situations are always more complex than one would imagine, if one listens only to people on their personal hobby-horse.

"Following Summorum Pontificum, he [Cardinal Bergoglio] made the traditional Mass readily available."

I find the above statement highly questionable. For the truth, check the following links, both to Rorate Caeli:

The Horror! A Buenos Aires journalist describes Bergoglio

How Summorum Pontificum was blocked and trampled on in Buenos Aires: facts, not fantasy and disinformation

And please follow your own advice and read the links in their entirety.
