(Rome) Cardinal Raymond Burke, the eminent religious lawyer, does not contradict the assertion of Pope Francis, that the Roman rite handed down was "only an exception for nostalgics". Also one of the most famous liturgists, Don Nicola Bux, raises contradiction.
Since 10 November, is the new Pope's book (Nei tuoi occhi è la mia parola) "In your eyes my word is" in bookstores. In this interview Pope's confidant, Father Antonio Spadaro SJ, Pope Francis tells the Latin Mass:
"The Latin Mass? Only one exception. Pope Benedict has made a proper and generous gesture to meet a certain mentality of some groups and individuals who have had nostalgia and are distant. But it is an exception. " This was contradicted yesterday Cardinal Raymond Burke, one of the most renowned canon lawyer, referring to the motu proprio Summorum Pontifikum of Benedict XVI.
The Pope is also contradicted by one of the most famous liturgists, Don Nicola Bux. The interview was conducted by the Internet newspaper La Fede Quotidiana:
FQ: Dn Nicola, the traditional Roman rite is an exception?
Nicola Bux: It is not in the Motu Proprio of Pope Benedict XVI. Rather, one reads explicitly that the two rites have the same dignity. This is what the Pope writes, not me. Therefore, we can not say the document at hand, that it is an exception, unless one wants to come to a conclusion which is directed against the document of the pope.
FQ: whence this "exception"?
Nicola Bux: I do not know. We are probably in the area of interpretations, which, however, are not confirmed in the document of Pope Benedict XVI.
FQ: of traditional Roman Rite: Many young people approach him recently with interest. Why?
Nicola Bux: I can confirm that there is a renewed interest, especially among young people. I am of the opinion that this has to do with the fact that there is a need for mysticism, a quality which the traditional rite preserves and encourages. Of course it can be said that this rite has no monopoly on mysticism, and it is also possible in the traditional rite to celebrate sloppily.
FQ: Sermon: Can we say that it is a "political" speech, as it has asserted Francis?
Nicola Bux: This definition seems ambiguous and requires clarification. When it comes to reading the day-to-day readings of current affairs from the concrete life, it is legitimate to speak of politics. I would like to say: When one immerses in the life of our time. The sermon, however, must not enter a straight step into political life in the sense of party politics. Not that one.
FQ: As a theologian: Is there divine penalties laid down by around Father Cavalcoli broken polemics?
Nicola Bux: In the Scriptures, the Old and the New Testament, we find different moments in which is open from God's punishment of the question. In the Gospel, for example, there is the episode of the Tower of Siloah and the massacre of Pilate. It can be concluded, "If you are not converted, you will perish in the same way." A natural catastrophe or a violence by man is not necessarily to be seen as a punishment for sin, because they can meet innocent people, but as a reminder To reverse. Jesus has said it: the Father rains over good and bad. The point is that many think that God, if he exists, has nothing to do with their lives, though they promptly complain when a catastrophe befalls them, and ask where God was.

SP offered a temporary solution, perhaps warranted by the times.
But the two rites have nowhere near the same dignity, and it's time to go Michael Davies on the new liturgy with a sustained polemical attack on the ritual itself. And we can start with the Anaphoras of Cipriano Vagaggini.
