Panorama: Pope not a "Decider"
The Italian Panorama has a new piece about the Holy Father. Of relevance to us is this:
Benedict XVI does not have the temperament of a "decider" and must take his age into consideration (he will be 80 on April 16). Moreover, his initiatives meet great resistance. The French Cardinals, guided by the President of the Episcopal Conference Jean-Pierre Ricard, oppose the liberalization of the Latin Mass of Saint Pius V.
