(quote) Paul-866591 said: Sorry, Jerry, you have distorted the wording. It specifically states.
"In Masses celebrated without the people, each Catholic Priest of the Latin rite, whether secular or regular, may use the Roman Missal published by Bl. Pope John XXIII in 1962, or the Roma Missal promulgated by Pope Paul VI in 1970, and may do so on any day with the exception of the Easter Tridium. For such celebrations, with either one Missal or the other, the priest has no need for permission from the Apostolic See or from his Ordinary."
The wording "... celebrated without the people ... ." clearly means non public masses. And it specifies no limit because normally a priest celebrating a private Mass is only going to say one Mass, not a multiplicity. Obviously, also, if a parish has more than one priests, each of them could say a private Mass and the only limit on the number of Masses would be the number of priests.
Ergo, the cited section, contrary to your first paragraph, does not allow an unlimited number of Public masses on any day without permission of the the Apostolic See or the ordinary of the diocese
Here is the relevant portion of the document (emphasis mine):
Art. 2. In Masses celebrated without the people
, each Catholic priest of
the Latin rite, whether secular or regular, may use the Roman Missal
published by Blessed Pope John XXIII in 1962, or the Roman Missal
promulgated by Pope Paul VI in 1970, and may do so on any day with the
exception of the Easter Triduum. For such celebrations, with either one
Missal or the other, the priest has no need for permission from the
Apostolic See or from his ordinary.
Art. 3. Communities of
institutes of consecrated life and of societies of apostolic life, of
either pontifical or diocesan right, wishing to celebrate Mass in
accordance with the edition of the Roman Missal promulgated in 1962, for
conventual or "community" celebration in their oratories, may do so. If
an individual community or an entire institute or society wishes to
undertake such celebrations often, habitually or permanently, the
decision must be taken by the superiors major, in accordance with the
law and following their own specific decrees and statues.
4. Celebrations of Mass as mentioned above in art. 2 may -- observing
all the norms of law -- also be attended by faithful who, of their own
free will, ask to be admitted.
Art. 5. 1 In parishes
there is a stable group of faithful who adhere to the earlier liturgical
tradition, the pastor should willingly accept their requests to
celebrate the Mass according to the rite of the Roman Missal published
in 1962, and ensure that the welfare of these faithful harmonizes with
the ordinary pastoral care of the parish, under the guidance of the
bishop in accordance with Canon 392, avoiding discord and favoring the
unity of the whole Church.
2 Celebration in accordance with the
Missal of Blessed John XXIII may take place on working days
; while on
Sundays and feast days one such celebration may also be held.www.zenit.org
