Archbishop Gullickson: “Stay Tuned for More Thoughts”

Swiss Nuncio Thomas Gullickson reiterated on his blog (November 26) his conviction that “the only future for the Church is in its recovery of integral Catholic Worship according to the Vetus Ordo.”

For him it is urgent to step back from the Novus Ordo, “especially when it comes to Eucharistic Reverence.” Gullickson will retire early, by the end of 2020.

“I will need some time yet to be able to work out the implications for myself as a retired member of the hierarchy,” he writes, “Stay tuned for more thoughts from the retiree in 2021.”

With that in mind, I can’t help but conclude with an anecdote told about the liturgical vision of Cardinal John Wright, native of Boston and one-time Bishop of Pittsburgh, who became Prefect of the Congregation of the Clergy in Rome. The story goes that shortly after Vatican II, some American seminarians spied him on the street and sought his opinion on what he thought the “new liturgy” ought to look like. The witty prelate, with a twinkle in his eye, replied: “Gentlemen, when Christ comes again in glory, I can assure you the angels in his retinue will not be singing ‘Kumbaya.’ They will be chanting, ‘Sanctus, sanctus, sanctus.’“
