DECRETO

Prot. S. N. 2021/ 10/ 147

El papa Francisco, en la Carta Apostólica en forma de Motu Proprio «Traditionis Custodes» sobre el uso de la Liturgia Romana antes de la reforma de 1970, publicada 16 de julio de 2021, recuerda que los obispos son “custodios de la tradición”, y que «al obispo diocesano, como moderador, promotor y custodio de toda la vida litúrgica en la Iglesia particular que le ha sido confiada le corresponde la regulación de las celebraciones litúrgicas en su propia diócesis.

Letter to His Eminence Cardinal Vincent Nichols

Vatican City, 4 August 2021

Prot. N. 378/21

Your Eminence,

Thank you for your letter of 28 July 2021 and for referring your queries regarding Traditionis custodes to the Congregation. The Congregation itself is attentively studying the implications of the Motu Proprio at present and has not, as yet, issued any guidelines. However, in order to be of assistance to Your Eminence I am happy to make an initial response and share with you our present understanding regarding the matters you raise. This response, therefore, is of a personal nature.

It is clear that the principal commentary on the new law governing the granting of the use of antecedents liturgical texts, by way of exceptional concession, and not by way of promotion, is the accompanying letter from Pope Francis to the Bishops. It is also evident that these exceptional concessions should only be granted to those who accept the validity and legitimacy of the liturgical reform of the Second Vatican Council and the Magisterium of the Supreme Pontiffs. All that is in the new law is oriented to the return and stabilisation of the liturgy as decreed by the Second Vatican Council.
