English-speaking voices join the chorus
Following the example set by intellectuals in France, Italy, and Poland-- and, years ago, by writers and artists in Great Britain-- an English-speaking group has issued a statement of support for the broader use of the 1962 Missal. The statement is published in joyful anticipation of a document from Pope Benedict XVI.
See the statement on the New Liturgical Movement web site.

Unless there's a link I'm not finding, there is no place to leave a comment. It is a great effort and in the wake of the other efforts, the solidarity is impressive.

As far as I know, what Benedict XVI will be giving is a "permission" to say the Latin Mass, and that mainly to protect those who would prefer to celebrate it from contradictory bishops who would care to suppress it. I would hope that the more "enthusiastic" would not view this as the beginning of a wholesale move to dilute or even negate Vatican II. It is not warranted.

I remain slightly miffed that I wasn't asked to sign. :)

One wonders how our friend Dr. McCorry will embrace this change.
