and the Role of the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei prior to and post September 2007 
By: Mr. Leo Darroch, Executive President – International Federation Una Voce.
the promulgation of 
Summorum Pontificum
in July 2007 there has been greatrejoicing from those in the Catholic Churchwho wish to retain traditions, and protectTradition. There is no doubt that the statementfrom Pope Benedict that the Missal of 1962had never been abrogated, and the freedom hehas granted to priests of the Roman Rite tocelebrate this form of the Mass, has led to agreat increase in the celebrations of the ancientand venerable rite. However, it is also clear that the promulgation of this
 Motu Proprio
hasled to many questions about the manner of celebration and the rubrics that apply to theMissal revised by Blessed John XXIII. It seemsthat there are some, including many bishops,who deliberately wish to create confusion anddissent in an attempt to dissuade priests andfaithful from benefiting from the Holy Father’s pastoral solicitude, and insist that post-1962developments (such as Communion in thehand, and female altar servers) are perfectlyvalid in Masses celebrated according to theMissal of 1962. On the other hand, there areothers who have genuine queries about what isallowed during the celebration of theExtraordinary form of the Mass. Questions are being raised more or less on a daily basis andthe Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei[PCED] is being inundated with letterscontaining requests for clarification; to such anextent that a document has been prepared thatseeks to clarify matters once and for all. Wehave been advised to wait patiently for the publication of this document.As I made clear in my Report to the PCED on29
April 2008, I believe that
Summorum Pontificum
Quattuor Abhinc Annos
[1984] and
 Ecclesia Dei Adflicta
[1988] beforeit) should be interpreted according to the mindof the Legislator in his desire to redress,
amongother things, what many traditional Catholics believe to have been abuses of their 
legitimateaspirations. I believe those who seek to modifythe directives of 
Summorum Pontificum
toincorporate the changes post-1962 should beinformed that they may freely
avail themselvesof the
 Novus Ordo
in Latin where most of thevarious adaptations are
already available, or can be adopted without any difficulty. The1965 Ordo and the 1967
Missa Normativa
were, by their own nature, only transitory andtemporary stages and lost
any particular significance once the 1969 edition of theRoman Missal was published by
Pope Paul VI.There is, consequently, no sense inencouraging the adoption of elements of 
thoseordos as somehow being natural and genuineevolutions of the 1962 Missal, which
remainsthe only legitimate expression of theExtraordinary form of Roman Rite as defined
 by His Holiness Pope Benedict XVI.
Recently, there has been much publicity givento a letter that was issued by the PCED in 1997and signed by the then President, CardinalFelici, and by Monsignor Perl, the Secretary.This letter permits a number of modifications tocelebrations of the Missal of 1962 concerningthe Epistle, Gospel, Gloria, Credo, Pater Noster,and Prefaces from the appendix of the 1965Missale Romanum and from that of 1970. They,therefore, are superseded by the provisions of 
Summorum Pontificum
. For if the SupremePontiff wished prior liturgical provisions to beobserved, he would have stated as much in hisMotu Proprio of 7th July 2007.In the midst of all this confusion there is, perhaps, a single question to be posed, theanswer to which may make the responses to allthe many queries irrelevant. But first it isnecessary to set the scene.The Holy Father, in
Summorum Pontificum
,could not have been clearer in stating what hemeans and meaning what he stated. Heconstantly refers to the Missal of 1962
theMissal of 1970. There is no ambiguity; it is astraight choice between one or the other. Thereis no in-between.With the full authority of Peter, the SupremeLegislator stated
“We Decree”.
He then statesthat the Missal of Blessed John XXIII:
