Don’t whitewash history: Paul VI was front and center the creator of the New Mass

[Nonetheless, the story of Abp. Bugnini’s deceitfulness (according to Fr. Louis Bouyer’s memoir that His Excellency would say to the Pope when he expressed reservations about some detail of the liturgical reform that the members of the Consilium wanted them, and vice-versa with the Consilium) is true; also, His Holiness quibbled with Bugnini on other details and vetoed them – such as having no Sign of the Cross at the beginning or elsewhere during Mass except at the end – and suppressing the Roman Canon and replacing it with the so-called Canon of Hippolytus (which may not have been an actual eucharistic prayer and/or composed by the anti-Pope and later repented and martyred St, Hippolytus) to become the new Roman Canon (although at least one modern liturgist has said that it should be called the Canon of Paul VI) ! – AQ moderator Tom]
Sandro Magister, the great Vaticanist of our age, has an article today [Paul VI and the liturgical reform: He approved it but didn’t like it much] with important excerpts from a biography of Paul VI in which it is claimed that he was almost a victim of the liturgical revolution, a bystander who had almost no control over what Bugnini did at the Consilium for the application of the liturgical reform.
Sorry, we don’t buy that.

Saying Paul VI had little responsibility for the New Mass of Paul Vi is like saying Louis XIV had no responsibility for Versailles, since he was not a mason and didn’t actually build it with his hands…
Give us a break! Paul VI was the driving force of the liturgical reform. He was front and center the man responsible for it. Of course he was queasy about it: he was the executioner responsible for taking the traditional Roman liturgy to the scaffold, and even executioners feel queasy about doing their job.
All this whitewashing of history is taking place just because of the absurd canonization of Paul VI …
