“As the subject of the language of worship was discussed in the Council hall over the course of several days, I followed the process with great attention, as well as later the various wordings of the Liturgy Constitution until the final vote. I still remember very well how after several radical proposals a Sicilian bishop rose and implored the fathers to allow caution and reason to reign on this point, because otherwise there would be the danger that the entire Mass might be held in the language of the people-whereupon the entire hall burst into uproarious laughter.”

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.
