So I had a look to see what was coming up on Australian diocesan websites on the letter, formally released on Thursday night (though dated March 10).
And only one diocesan website in the whole of Australia actually seems to mention it (maybe I've missed a link or reference buried somewhere, but nothing was obvious on a quick check at any rate).
So kudos to Melbourne and Archbishop Hart, for a site which has a good article summarising the letter, entitled 'Pope personally explains decision to extend olive branch to SSPX bishops', with a link to the full text.
As for the rest, the Pope's words about taking heed of the net is perhaps something that needs to be pondered...
And still waiting for that media statement on behalf of the bishop's conference, or from individual bishops!
Latin Mass communities
Now of course the issues relating to the SSPX will be of particular interest to the existing TLM communities. So one might expect to see something on the various websites? Well:
- Latin Mass Melbourne, as ever the leader on things internet, had a link up to the letter virtually as soon as it was released; and
- In Brisbane, Fr Jordan sent out an email bulletin update summarising the letter.
And as for the rest...perhaps it is coming with tomorrow's mass bulletin?
