Rumour Upgrade

Most of the Motu Proprio rumours have been third or fourth hand. A reporter says an official says he heard from someone close to the Pope that it is "on its way" on Thursday. Or Saturday. Or on Corpus Christi. Or a week from Tuesday.

But this one is a major improvement. We've upgraded to second-hand. The Una Voce delegation heard from the Holy Father himself that the freedom for the traditional Roman Rite is imminent. You can find the (very short) report here.

I think we're still subject to a hearsay objection. And maybe a "best evidence" objection. But we're getting there. . . .
