I'm sure you remember my BYZANTIUM 1 post on March the 25th; Lady Day. I quoted Joseph Ratzinger's words on how the West has an imperative duty to appropriate the iconographical developments of the East.
And have you now read - courtesy of NLM - how the beginning of the Easter Sunday Papal Mass has been overhauled in the last few years and a splendid new icon created for the pontiff and the people to venerate?
If you want to know what's in the Holy Father's mind, Hunwicke is essential reading.
I notice, by the way, that through the Triduum the Sovereign Pontiff is using the Canon Romanus at the Lord's Supper Mass, but otherwise the Third Eucharistic Prayer.
And that some intercessions are to be in Arabic and Hebrew. That's splendid. But I wouldn't mind betting that some Nasties will complain. For example, when JP2 canonised Edith Stein, there were complaints that Rome was trying to commandeer the Holocaust. And there have been Moslems who have complained about the use of the vocable Allah to refer to any God but their own.
It's not what the Pope actually does or actually says that they dislike; they have a frenzied and bigotted hatred of the man ... whatever he ... they're determined .......
