The "M.C. Wars"

Came across this cute video. Enjoy!

The new Papal M.C. really enjoys the "old-style" vestments for himself and his boss.
Recently he publicly came out as a supporter of the "Reform the reform" movement, which seeks to rollback the liturgical reform of Vatican II, which was called for by the Constitution on the Sacred Liturgy.

Check out this recent article from Catholic News Service:

Papal liturgist endorses 'reform of the reform' of the liturgy

VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- The pope's chief liturgist, Msgr. Guido Marini, endorsed calls in the church for a "reform of the reform" of Catholic liturgy. "For some years now, several voices have been heard within church circles talking about the necessity of a new liturgical renewal," Msgr. Marini said. A fresh renewal movement would be "capable of operating a reform of the reform, or rather, move one more step ahead in understanding the authentic spirit of the liturgy and its celebration," he said. Msgr. Marini, who has served as master of papal liturgical ceremonies since late 2007, spoke Jan. 6 to a conference of priests from English-speaking countries gathered in Rome to mark the Year for Priests. The conference was sponsored by the Australian Confraternity of Catholic Clergy and the U.S.- based Confraternity of Catholic Clergy. The papal liturgist said the goal of the new reform movement "would be to carry on that providential reform of the liturgy that the conciliar fathers had launched" but which has "not always, in its practical implementation, found a timely and happy fulfillment."
