The fact that you criticize the dress of the Eucharistic ministers (not undeservedly) and use the word fashion in your description would seem to make the Pope’s point.
I’m not certain the Pope was trying to denigrate the TLM, and to assume he had from a third person account, in a very short translated account, from a hostile incompetent press is somewhat unfair.
Pope Benedict also had some criticism of the TLM in his book The Spirit of the Liturgy, but he was trying to get to the essentials of the matter.
I'm not sure I understand. Reagan was describing the Novus Ordo, not the TLM. Francis was describing the TLM.
So do you consider Vatican Radio to be “a hostile, incompetent press”? If so, shouldn’t the Pope shut it down?
Care to quote that criticism? Once you do, I'll give you some of Pope Benedict's criticisms of Bugnini's Mass.
