"The Consilium is merely an assembly of people, many of them incompetent, and others well advanced on the road to novelty. The discussions are extremely hurried. Discussions are based on impressions and the voting is chaotic. […] Many of those who have influenced the reform […] have no love, and no veneration of that which has been handed down to us. They begin by despising everything that is actually there. This negative mentality is unjust and pernicious, and unfortunately, Paul VI tends a little to this side. They have all the best intentions, but with this mentality they have only been able to demolish and not to restore."
— Contemporary account of the Consilium by Cardinal Antonelli

Major Media Outlet Re: “Ad Orientem”
published 12 August 2016 by Jeff Ostrowski

208 Robert Cardinal Sarah Y FRIEND emailed me a URL link to an article by Ms. Claire Chretien. Published by a major media outlet, the article deals with recent statements by Robert Cardinal Sarah, prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments, with regard to “ad orientem” in the Ordinary Form.

Specifically, Ms. Chretien cites several Watershed articles, including this one (which really caught fire online, being “cut & pasted” to many Catholic blogs). What I appreciate is that she properly credits our website.

Here’s an excerpt:
