Vatican Official Warns Bishops

CWN and Zenit report that Cardinal Dario Castrillon-Hoyos has sent a warning shot over the bow of bishops who would give problems to priests who want to celebrate the old mass. Today is the date of implementation of the pope’s recent motu proprio; Castrillon-Hoyos notes:

“The important thing is that in this moment, priests can decide, without permission from the Holy See or the bishop, to celebrate the Mass in the ancient rite. And this holds true for all priests. … It is not therefore necessary to ask any other permission.”
