Cardinal Hoyos at CELAM

Fr Z has a post on Cardinal Hoyos' speech to CELAM. He was giving a report on the work of the Ecclesia Dei Commission. This is of particular relevance because of the arrangements made for Bishop Rifan and the Diocese of Campos.

A few points are repeated there - the traditional Mass was not abolished, the Holy Father wants to extend the option of celebrating it to the whole Church, the two rites can co-exist peacefully. He asks for prayers that this wish of the Holy Father can be put into effect for the sake of the unity of the Church.

The translation (not by Fr Z) is not good. Here is the original text in Spanish.
