“The Pope is not an absolute monarch whose thoughts and desires are law. On the contrary: the Pope’s ministry is a guarantee of obedience to Christ and to his Word. He must not proclaim his own ideas, but rather constantly bind himself and the Church to obedience to God’s Word, in the face of every attempt to adapt it or water it down, and every form of opportunism.”
— His Holiness, Pope Benedict XVI (11 May 2005)

Dr. Peter Wagner’s article on the Vatican Edition was not the only article that came to the defense of Abbot Pothier. Prior T. A. Burge, O.S.B., also took umbrage at the sharp words of Rev. Henry Bewerunge, criticizing Pope Saint Pius X’s Gregorian chant edition. Very Rev. Thomas Anselm Burge’s article is reproduced below.
