Some of the comments following the election of Pope Francis have been made in ignorance of the Church's teachings, "normal" practice and Vatican "protocol". The idea that Pope Francis would somehow "remove" Pope Benedict's Summorum Pontificum (on the Extraordinary Rite etc) is simply ridiculous. In this report from the New Liturgical Movement blog we gain some insight into the Pope's mind. He is a unifying Pope, not a Pope of disunity or disturbance in the Church. I sometimes wonder if some of the fears we have seen expressed since his election betray a lack of faith in the Holy Spirit and Our Lord's promise to be with us until the end of the ages. Pope Benedict argued that BOTH forms of the rite (ordinary and extraordinary) should inform each other. I know that some "traditionalists" (I dislike using the term but it is used in this limited sense by some) have not really accepted this; they want the old rite to remain untouched. This was not Pope Benedict's intention, nor was it his intention that the Missa Normativa (the correct name for the ordinary rite) should remain untouched or descend further into unwarranted innovations or liturgical disobedience. Rather BOTH rites are protected by each other and certain "adaptations" or "styles" can already be seen moving from one to the other. A stultification in the manner of celebrating the Old Rite needs to be avoided. A too mannered way of celebrating the Latin Rite can be just as much a distraction and display of the priest's ego as some styles of celebration are in the Ordinary Rite. One of the things I have learned in coming to the Old Rite is that the priest is the servant of the Rite which means that a certain humility is required. Pope Francis' use of the word "triumphalism" is well-advised. The extremes he does not like - I would suggest - are linked to a certain style of priestly living which sometimes appears snobby or sneering. Allowing for human weaknesses and non-sinful eccentricities, what we, in Yorkshire, refer to as "poncing about" needs to be avoided.
The Liturgy, "new" or "old" is NOT vehicle for displaying one's "churchmanship" (for want of another term) or the distinctiveness of one's character or even piety. Self-consciousness in celebrating the Liturgy is always spotted by those who are genuinely Catholic and it is, in the end, a "turn off". Pope Francis' obvious humility and his emphasis on the priest (and bishop) as servant is applicable to every aspect of priestly life, including the Liturgy.
