Catholics familiar with the long historical of debates over the translation of the Roman Missal into English may be interested to learn that another lively debate has begun over a new translation for the Ambrosian rite, as practiced in Milan. The outspoken Cardinal Giacomo Biffi-- a native of Milan, and retired Archbishop of Bologna-- is highly critical of the new translation.

Why is it, generally, that only retired bishops speak out??? Are they afraid to speak when they are still 'employed"?

Thanks for this brief. I was under the impression that the Ambrosian was celebrated only in the diocese of Milan, but it is clear that such an opinion is wrong.
