Urge Catholic Answers to retract!

(07-15-2013, 02:18 PM)St. Pius of Trent Wrote: Could it be that when Paul VI changed all the rites of the Roman Rite, despite the perennial Church saying that this cannot be done that Paul VI essentially established a new (small "c") church? How else can one explain the fact that the Roman Rite has two sets of "rites" now? Fr. Gregory Hesse covers this in a talk here: 


Who said it could not be done? Pius XII taught in the encyclical Mediator Dei that the Pope has the right to modify any rites or to introduce new rites.

58. It follows from this that the Sovereign Pontiff alone enjoys the right to recognize and establish any practice touching the worship of God, to introduce and approve new rites, as also to modify those he judges to require modification.
