God is omnipotent, that is, He can do whatever He wants that does not contradict His own nature. Want to be automatically notified of new documents? All other of the churches referred to above, however, are hereby denied the use of other missals, which are to be discontinued entirely and absolutely; whereas, by this present Constitution, which will be valid henceforth, now, and forever, We order and enjoin that nothing must be added to Our recently published Missal, nothing omitted from it, nor anything whatsoever be changed within it under the penalty of Our displeasure.

Pius V's time as in our own! Positive law here is understood as a human law to govern the human needs of the Church. For this reason, that action was illegitimate, and it must be resisted until it disappears from the entire Church.

Indeed, this context is very similar to our own. Quo primum moment's reflection bears this out, for if they were matters of faith, then they would have to be, like the Faith itself, the same in all times.
