Cardinal Ricard — aka Mr. Obvious

An excerpt from a New York Times piece regarding Summorum Pontificum:

Cardinal Jean-Pierre Ricard, chairman of the bishops’ conference in France, where the opposition to the wider use of the Mass was strongest, told reporters that he did not expect many more requests for the Latin Mass. “I don’t see a tsunami coming,” he said, according to Agence France-Presse.

Ya think not? Well then, a big gold star for you, your Eminence!

Requests won't be coming in any longer, since they aren't necessary! As a member of the Ecclesia Dei commission, I'd hope you picked up on Article 2, "...the priest has no need for permission from the Apostolic See or from his Ordinary."

In the words of the Guinness guys, "Brilliant!"
