Universae Ecclesiae: a placeholder post

William Cardinal Levada, president of Ecclesia Dei

The big Church news today was of course the publication of Universae Ecclesiae, the long-awaited Instruction that clarifies the practical implementation of 2007’s Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum, which deals with the Extraordinary Form of the Mass. The embargo on the text was officially lifted at noon today, and I am secretly quite proud to be able to present a Dutch translation on the same day.

Tomorrow I plan to offer some thoughts on the Instruction (hence this post’s title), published by the Pontifical Council Ecclesia Dei. The official English text is available here.
