ARDINAL Antonelli, secretary of the Consilium for the Implementation of the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy, had this to say regarding Vatican II and the Latin language. Will the true defenders of Vatican II please stand up?
And here is what the Second Vatican Council mandated regarding Latin:
The Second Vatican Council said: “The use of the Latin language is to be preserved in the Latin rites.” (SC §36 n1) Canon layer Georg May says: “This sentence has imposed a command to preserve the Latin language. In contrast to the translation produced under the auspices of the German bishops, it must be observed that the official text of the document employs the subjunctive servetur and therefore expresses a command, not merely a recommendation. The Latin language must be preserved. The word usus clearly commands the actual employment of the Latin language and not simply a possibility of its being used…” —Courtesy of Monsignor Joannes Overath, President of Consociatio Internationalis Musicæ Sacræ (Translated from German by Dr. Robert Skeris)
