A hiccup in Pope Benedict’s reform?

Jeff Culbreath:

This pertains to the new rite
[actually a use of the Roman Rite], in which women have been reading the lessons for decades now as a widely overlooked abuse. Eucharistic ministers are supposed to “extraordinary” – used only in cases of necessity, such as bringing the eucharist to the sick – but have now become routine at the new liturgies, an untouchable symbol of “lay participation”. The new rite is plagued with these and similar abuses.

So, if women are admitted to office of lector, it’s kind of like immigration amnesty: they’re already doing it, this just makes it legal.
[Like how the Modernists pushed their yucko version of Communion in the hand on pathetic Paul VI.] What’s frustrating is that many Catholics have been hoping that such abuses would be eliminated from the new rite instead of ratified – the “reform of the reform” movement. Traditionalists generally have not held out much hope for the “reform of the reform”, but I have tried to be optimistic about it.

Unlike Bishop Morlino, most bishops are on board with the whole feminist-dominated “lay participation” racket.
[The church can’t change its teaching, which I give the late JPII credit for repeating, but liberal-Protestant-minded folk have been trying to soft-sell women’s ordination to RCs for 40 years.] Among those who might be opposed, few have a stomach for the fight.
