The Continuity of Tradition

God bless our Holy Father Benedict XVI!!

As a final post for the week here is the Mass celebrated for the Feast of Christ the King and presentation of the cardinalitial ring to the new Cardinals. At the end of the Liturgical year the most absurd aspect of the "new liturgies" at St Peters has been corrected with the restoration of the six candles with Altar Cross in the middle of the Altar, and the restoration of the use of the Cardinal deacons.

AND note the similarities with the following pic of Pius XII celebrating at the same Altar.

- a living demonstration of the hermeneutic of continuity.

Some posts on the NLM are advising us to watch carefully and take in the changes in Pontifical Liturgies now that Mgr Guido Marini is in charge and no doubt responding to Pope Benedict's wishes. If we can spread the word some steps towards the Reform of the Reform could be achieved.
