Motu Madness

The queries have been multitudinous and yet, appropriately, univocal: Just what does Carriere think of Summorum Pontificum?
I think it's great.
In particular I am pleased with one sentence in the accompanying letter to bishops,
"I would like to draw attention to the fact that this Missal was never juridically abrogated and, consequently, in principle, was always permitted."
Justice is good.
The Faith is a permanent thing best practiced without constant concern for the mood of the day, and so perhaps the greatest benefit of all is that it will finally be possible for me to ignore entirely, on a day-to-day basis, Vatican affairs.
