AMU President Shares Supreme Pontiff's Perspective

People have from time to time noted that AMU President Nick Healy has a catholic view of Catholic liturgy - he has been informally "quoted" as saying "if it's ok by the pope, it's ok by us" (thanks, Kate).

In this regard, Healy seems to be of one mind with our beloved Pope Benedict XVI, who according to Whispers in the Loggia, instructs our bishops in his new motu proprio, titled Summorum Pontificum:

“Let us generously open our hearts and make room for everything that the faith itself allows...”

It seems that we can look forward to a rich palette of liturgical worship in Ave Maria. The text of the motu proprio is at Whispers along with commentary, by the way. The Ave Maria community might wish to ponder the quote Rocco Palmo uses to close his commentary at Whispers:
In necessariis unitas, in dubiis libertas, in omnibus caritas.
