The Jesuit run America Magazine has an article by Paul Philibert, O.P. about the “pro multis” issue. A Dominican writing for Jesuits about liturgy. Hmmmm. I have written about this issue quite a few times. ........He argues that people are used to the lame-duck translation, and therefore we shouldn’t change it.
That is “Lefebvrism of the the Left”. People are used to vices.
People were used to the way the Mass was before the Council. None of that made a difference back then. The translation of “pro multis” was simply wrong. It had to be changed. He argues from the same old tired arguments about Scripture and from guesses about what Jesus really said. Fail.
He accuses Pope Benedict of a pre-Conciliar mentality, actually being against the Second Vatican Council’s ecclesiology and he suggests that Pope Benedict doesn’t care about “evangelization”. He seems to be daunted by the possibility that he may have to explain what this means. He suggests disobedience.
Like (here) to Fr. Z's full piece entitled, America Magazine article about “pro multis” in the corrected translation.
