Bobby Mickens, writer, correspondent, canon lawyer, liturgist and part-time, freelance advisor to the Successor of St Peter is absolutely livid about the new document that supports and clarifies, with even bolder language, Summorum Pontificum.

It's important to remember The Tablet team at this difficult time for them. Be generous and have pity. Let's all save up and get them a weekend break at a health spa somewhere on the outskirts of London. Chill out, guys! It's just a little reform! Anyone would have thought the Holy Father had just called for the culling of all ginger cats or something!
