Straight Talking from Swiss Bishop

Fr Zulsdorf on his blog, What Does the prayer Really Say, has a very good piece written by the Bishop of Basel.

The Church in Switzerland is extremely liberal, even to the extent that the Bishop of Basel is elected by the laity, with the Vatican having little say in the matter. It seems that the liberals of the Diocese of Basel have elected the wrong man, and have found themselves with an extremely orthodox Bishop who is not afraid to speak his mind. He has recently hit out at his Vatican II obsessed critics, by pointing out that Vatican II requires pride of place to be given to Gregorian Chant and that Latin be retained.

Go over to WDTPRS and read it for yourself. It is really good.
