POPE FRANCIS CALLS EMERGENCY MEETING TO REFORM THE REFORM OF THE REFORMED REFORM H/T RetRorate Caeli
In an attempt to respond (so quickly he even didn't waste time putting on his zucchetto and shoulder cape) in a sensitive pastoral manner to the concerns expressed (repeatedly and loudly) by the ever submissive, yet never submitting, boys over at RetRorate, His Holiness Pope Francis convened the gang of cardinal advisers to discuss the ways in which they could make S canonization of six new saints longer (=holier).
They decided to implement the following.
Immediately after the invocation (Father, Son and Holy
Spirit GHOST) the Franciscan Friars of the Immaculate (all fifteen left) will chant, recto tono, the complete Roman Martyrology.
After the Gospel, all seven versions of the Nicene Creed will be recited in Latin and Greek and the vernacular language of each newly canonized saint.
At the conclusion of Mass, before the recession, all four Marian Antiphons will be chanted as a round, by the Three Irish Tenors.
