the saddest day

By Diogenes ( articles ) | Jul 08, 2007

Here's what I actually did read about an Italian bishop's reaction to the motu proprio:

"I can't fight back the tears. This is the saddest moment in my life as a man, priest and bishop," Luca Brandolini, a member of the liturgy commission of the Italian bishops' conference, told Rome daily La Repubblica in an interview on Sunday.

"It's a day of mourning, not just for me but for the many people who worked for the Second Vatican Council. A reform for which many people worked, with great sacrifice and only inspired by the desire to renew the Church, has now been cancelled."

And here's what I really, really want to read on Monday morning:

Il Santo Padre ha accettato la rinuncia al governo pastorale della diocesi di Sora-Aquino-Pontecorvo (Italia), presentata da S.E. Mons. Luca Brandolini, in conformita al can. 401-§2 del Codice di Diritto Canonico.
