Sort of affirmation after denials

On 23 August, I reported on the Reform of the reform gathering pace, and then on the 25 August there was the Vatican Press Offices's Non-denial denial, followed in short order by Andrea Tornielli's article "le smentite che non smentiscono"

It seems now that a formal statement on the reform of the reform is expected soon, according to the New Liturgical Movement. We are waiting for Cardinal Llovera to issue a formal statement.

This might seem a bit machiavellian to some but, to be honest, I am happy enough. This is the way that the Vatican works and clearly there is some progress being made, despite the opposition of the Benedict-hating liberals.
