Cardinal Hoyos in 30 Giorni

If you read Italian, there is an excellent interview in 30 Giorni with Cardinal Castrillón Hoyos, President of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei.

Some extracts are translated at Rorate Caeli: Castrillón speaks to 30 Giorni. Here is my own translation of another passage that caught my eye:
Was the mass of St Pius V ever abolished by the Novus Ordo?
CASTRILLÓN HOYOS: The second Vatican Council never did that and there was never subsequently any positive act that established that. Therefore formally, the mass of St Pius V was never abolished. Surprisingly, those who set themselves up as authentic interpreters of Vatican II gave it an interpretation, in the field of the liturgy, so restrictive and so little respectful of the liberty of the faithful, as to make the Council seem even more coercive than the Council of Trent.
