The use of Braga and Summorum Pontificum

It has come to our attention recently that the Pontifical Commission Ecclesia Dei (PCED) considers the use of Braga to be within the purview of the motu proprio Summorum Pontificum. This September past a member of the Polish clergy submitted a number of questions to the PCED. Of interest to the readers of this blog, we call to you attention question number 13:

Are non-roman rites (mozarabe and ambrosian) and roman territorial rites (diocese of Lyon and Braga) regultaed by the Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum? Instruction Universae Ecclesiae only mentions the books of 1962 of religious communities (No. 34).


In answer to this, the PCED replied:

13. The Motu Proprio Summorum Pontificum applies to the Roman Rite and its uses (either local or proper to religious orders).


A full scan of the letter and the reply can be seen here.
