On Summorum Pontificum

Rev. Fr. John T. Zuhlsdorf has posted a brief piece on the upcoming clarification of the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum. But I’m not sure what needs to be clarified; the Old Mass was never abrogated, so what more is there to say on it? What we really need is a pointing out of in which documents Paul VI made the New Mass obligatory. Its botched promulgation in the Apostolic Constitution Missale Romanum has been noted not only by the S.S.P.X. but also by non-partisan observers like Prof. Romano Amerio.
