Cardinal Murphy O'Conner: generosity to the Old Mass 'rather important'

A surprising passage in his interview in The Spectator:

A fortnight ago the Pope issued an apostolic exhortation calling for greater use of Gregorian chant and Latin in the liturgy, and any minute now he is expected to lift most of the remaining restrictions on the old Mass. Cardinal Cormac welcomes these developments. ‘I think it is rather important that we are generous in that respect, in terms of the use of the Tridentine rite.’

Hat-tip to Valle Adurni, where there is more commentary.
