Zenit reports today, “Four decades after the liturgical reform carried out by the Second Vatican Council, it is right to examine the way it has been implemented, in order to relaunch it, says Cardinal Angelo Sodano.” Huh? Did he say “relaunch?” Gee whiz Cardinal, we barely survived the first wave of reforms.

With vocations at an all time low, scandals abounding, fewer than one of four Catholics attending Mass, and 70% of all Catholics believing the Eucharist is “symbolic,” we couldn’t agree more that the post-council liturgical trainwreck be “rexamined.” But Sodano’s solution is a surprise. Obviously, he’s concluded that Catholics don’t get it, so it’s time to “relaunch” the reforms. This is like Coke deciding to relaunch “New Coke” (which was a classic marketing disaster) because consumers just didn’t get it the first time around. Anyone who suspsects that “conservatives” are in control of the Vatican is kidding themselves…
