The motu
Trying to report on a misreported Mass
This starts off well:
Its distinguishing marks are not that it is in Latin and that the priest has his back to the people.
Thank you.

Then it goes predictably wrong:
Why does all this matter? From one side because the Second Vatican Council introduced a laity-led engagement of the Church with the world, and some people fear that a reversion to a liturgy in force before the era of the council will jeopardise all its reforms.
Aaaaaagh!

So V2 invented that?

Rubbish.

Google ‘Catholic Action’, Dorothy Day, the Catholic Worker, Catherine de Hueck Doherty, Friendship House, Cardinal Cardijn and the JOC movement, all pre-V2.

In fact Opus Dei was started in 1928 as a lay apostolate to engage the world.
