By the way...
There have been certain folks (you know who you are!) who have been rather harsh toward our holy father, really shamefully so in some cases, because he didn't issue thundering mandates and excommunications right after his first Mass as pope.
You have carped about him, accused him of terrible things, because he didn't do enough, act fast enough, and claimed he never believed anything he said about his concern for the liturgy.
As the discussion of a decree freeing the old form of Mass went along, and nothing came out, you said it would never happen, again citing all the accusations against the character of our pope.
When the exhortation came out recently about the Mass (Sacramentum Caritatis), you went into full-howl, because the absence of lightning bolts and dictates was "betrayal." No other possible reading could be considered.
Now, consider that the decree regarding the old form of Mass has come; and note, it is better (from your point of view) than expected in many ways: there is no minimum number of the faithful who may request it, it seemingly only calls for a plural, so that sounds like two; the priest is completely free to offer the old Mass "privately" -- only the people can attend! And the instructions to priests and bishops is, accommodate these requests; and it actually says, if you don't, the people can appeal to Rome.
What about the reform of the new form of Mass? Well, the pope provided for that, in a way that -- if you are really right about the old form of Mass -- makes all the sense in the world. He's proposing the celebration of the old form of Mass as the main means for bringing good things to the predominant, new form of the Mass. Wait, didn't you say all along how powerful, how awesomely superior the old Mass is? Just set it free, and see what happens? The people will flock to it? Do you mean, you weren't sincere in those claims?
Because the pope's actions presuppose that's true--or, at least, if they are true, then it will work.
So now you are invited to use the comments to apologize for all the bile and dark accusations against the pope, and so forth. Three words will suffice, and you can remain anonymous: "I was wrong."
If you wish to continue sniping at the pope for -- I dunno, he has miserably failed to dig up the corpse of Paul VI and put it on trial or something -- well, take that elsewhere; it will be deleted completely.
