Motu Proprio goes into effect Friday, September 14th

The motu proprio with which Pope Benedict XVI encouraged wide use of the Roman Missal of 1962, will take effect tomorrow, Friday, September 14th.

On July 7th, Pope Benedict's initiative was made public after months of intense speculation. "It calls upon pastors to 'willingly accept' requests from the faithful for access to the pre-conciliar liturgy. Pope Benedict explained that his motu proprio was an effort to promote 'interior reconciliation in the heart of the Church.'" (From Catholic Culture)
