Intra-Latin Debates

How do we reconcile our Latin ecclesiology centered on the bishop of Rome with the pontificate of Francis? On one side, the Latin traditionalists, on the other Latin postconciliar "conservatives" who are not necessarily in agreement on all points.

Mirus's piece is more detailed and some of his rebuttals are on point, and while he is correct about the 20th century liturgical movement, it would be wrong to identify that with the postconciliar reform (which had begun under Pius XII) spearheaded by Bugnini.

Nonetheless, both sides are incorrect in so far as they adhere to that Latin ecclesiology, which informs their perspective on matters pertaining to the patriarchate of Rome.
