Rising down under

Oriens, the journal of the Ecclesia Dei Society of Australia, has a worthwhile website with a good selection of articles, reviews, and other materials connected to the restoration of the traditional Latin Mass and its bearing on the situation in the Church generally. Among the articles I particularly noticed were The Papa Luigi syndrome and Think Catholic, Act Locally. Both are concerned with the need for spontaneous traditionalism locally and an end to hyperactive global reform from the top—a topic I’ve discussed here. (The “Papa Luigi” comes from combining the “L’etat c’est moi” of Louis XIV with the “La tradizione sono io” of Pio Nono.)
