Regina has an interview with Vatican-watcher Edward Pentin with comments about liturgy that will interest Pray Tell readers:
REGINA: And what of the recent purging of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the naming of a big group of different prelates. What will this mean for the liturgy?
Edward Pentin: The replacement of almost all the members of the Congregation has been largely viewed as another example of Pope Francis’ wish to mold the Curia to suit his own vision — which every pope will do — but in his case, some say it shows a revolution in full swing. I understand that since Francis was elected, a large number of so-called “sound”, orthodox clergy have either voluntarily left serving as curial officials or been forcibly removed. This was particularly true of the Congregation for Divine Worship which had had many Benedict appointees. As to what the changes to the Congregation mean for the liturgy, given that most of the new members, though not all, are in favor of innovative approaches to the Novus Ordo, it’s likely that that liturgical emphasis will be coming out of the Vatican in the months and years ahead. But these changes are just a small part of an acceleration in changes being enacted by Francis who has privately voiced his wish for his legacy of radical change to continue after he is no longer Pope.
