Meditation of Cardinal Prospero Grech OSA to Cardinals Gathered in Conclave

It's a sad end to the year 2019, with the death of Cardinal Prospero Grech OSA that was announced yesterday. Some years ago, this Blog had posted an article about this eminent son of Malta. Today, we post his meditation to the Cardinals delivered before the election of Francis as Pope. As far as we know, this is the first time that this meditation is being published on a Maltese website. We thank the former President of Pro Tridentina (Malta), Godwin Xuereb, who corresponded with the late Cardinal,who found this meditation for this Blog. This meditation remains valid, perhaps even more, than when it was delivered to the Cardinals.

Rorate Caeli - so Pro Tridentina (Malta) was correct after all!

Cardinal Robert Sarah's retirement as Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship has been postponed. This has been interpreted by sources close to this Blog as implying that next month the first in a series of  liturgical changes that this Blog had mentioned more than 2 years ago will start being implemented.
Seven Saints will be added to the Tridentine Mass of 1962. The typical practice is to add new saints to the calendar and then incorporate them into the next edition of the Missal. This practice implies that a new version of the 1962 Missal is coming soon, with possibly additional changes. 
Rorate Coeli has given credit to this news to an Italian website Messa in Latino. We are happy that they have given positive feedback to this Italian website. However, lest we forget, when we had published the afore-mentioned breaking news, which was widely reported, Rorate Coeli tried to denigrate this Blog as this and this articles amply show.
A year after, we published another article showing that the changes had been merely postponed. All of the above shows that this Blog disseminates facts and not fiction. Maybe, in due course, Rorate Coeli will acknowledge that this Blog was right after all.
