"Your Trip Is Cancelled."


Seems that the Bugnini-ite snark-specialist (and liturgical affliction) will not be here too soon, if ever:

Archbishop Piero Marini's scheduled book-tour of the States has been indefinitely postponed.

Marini served two decades as chief liturgist to John Paul II and Benedict XVI before being named in October to the presidency of the Pontifical Commission for Eucharistic Congresses.

Although a rescheduling of the US tour is being discussed for a later date (most likely November), with the official line running that the archbishop had become "concerned" about coming in the run-up to the Pope's mid-April visit, another source informed of the change reported that the cancellation was sought by Benedict's Secretary of State, Cardinal Tarcisio Bertone SDB.

Oh, well. Perhaps his book-sales will do well, regardless.

Then again, perhaps not. The book is'60's.
