Top 10 Things They'll Say About the Motu
No, not David Letterman!

At the end of an article on the Pope’s motu propio Summorum Pontificum in the bulletin at our Latin Mass chapel, was this warning:

“BE prepared for the following arguments and zingers in just about every article to be published on the Classic Roman Rite:
1. Anti-Semitic
2. Sexist
3. Roll back Vatican II
4. Priest turns back on people
5. No one understands Latin
6. No one attends Old Mass
7. Permission already exists
8. Ultra-conservatives
9. All who favor Latin Mass are SSPX ‘extremists’
and
10. Something about Mel Gibson.”

Watch your popular media and certain Catholic publications and see how close the author was.
