A different Italian bishop: "Try this older Liturgy for yourselves!"
Fr Z has the translated text of a great sermon by the Most Rev Luigi Negri, Archbishop of Ferrara-Comacchio at a Mass according to the usus antiquior which he celebrated at the Marian shrine of Poggetto. He says that Pope Benedict "overcame that spurious distinction between “old” and “new” which is made by the followers of the hermeneutic of discontinuity" but there is so much good sense in this sermon concerning the place of the usus antiquior that I encourage you to read it all. The people of his diocese are fortunate indeed to have such a Bishop.
