"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."
— Alfons Cardinal Stickler (1997)

Historic Meeting of . . . Two Popes? Awesome!
published 23 March 2013 by Jeff Ostrowski

HAT CAN BE SAID about such a scene? In general, I am not a fan of cameras being so intrusive these days, especially when you have camera men running around in Church without showing reverence to the Blessed Sacrament, and so forth. However, I have to admit I am glad they had a camera to capture this (although obviously they had private meetings without cameras). I am not a person who “gets emotional” very easily, but this meeting really touched my heart.
