Leading the way

Good to see a bishop who previously has refused to authorise the use of the 1962 missal in his diocese now, in the light of Summorum Pontificum saying that he will take it upon himself to celebrate the extraordinary form himself!

From the American National Catholic Register.

“I am the only bishop in Wisconsin who does not now give permission for the Mass of Blessed John XXIII, as I did not feel the adequate catechesis was in place,” Bishop Robert Morlino of Madison told the Register. “But now that the Holy Father has indicated his desire for this extraordinary form to be more widely used, not only will the decree be implemented, but I intend to take the lead. I hope myself to celebrate this Mass, through which I found my own vocation.”

I kinda felt the same way--didn't want to attend the indult Mass. But now I'm really interested in occasionally attending the 1962 Mass. It just feels less divisive now.
