A blocked agreement?
A Great Siege mentality?
I was informed today that the agreement about the celebration of the Tridentine Mass, described in a post earlier this year, Towards an agreement in Malta? was in the final stages of being agreed. However, out of the blues, two stumbling blocks have surfaced:

1) financial (seems that the parish is requesting more funds); and

2) authorisation by a superior authority is being delayed.

This reminds me of an initiative by Pro Tridentina (Malta) last year, Petition for Mass in Valletta which had some success as far as the amount of signatures collected. Unfortunately, the entity with whom discussions were being held somehow backed off.

It also reminds me of the alleged Visit by a SSPX delegation in Malta (actually two) also last year, which also seem to have led to nowhere.

Let's hope that this time round common sense prevails.
