Fr. Z's message, today, is Thank you, Pope Francis! - In two weeks Pope Francis has done more to promote Summorum Pontificum than Pope Benedict did since the day he promulgated it. (Essentially driving catholics to the TLM).
If you read his blog post under that title, you'll realize this is at best a back-handed "Thank you." Obviously Fr. Z is flustered and perplexed by the Mandatum madness and is taking pains to paint it in the best of lights.

Yes, I understood that, hence my comment "Essentially driving catholics to the TLM". However, Fr. Z's initial impression is also posted above. Care to comment on this?
I think what Pope Francis is up to is trying to project, re-project, is an image of the Church as compassionate. He is trying to help people remember (or learn for the first time) that she is actually all about compassion, charity in its truest form.
