Defending Truth and Tradition in the Roman Catholic Church

How Ironic

August 30th, 2010, Promulgated by Dr. K

Today the weekly Catholic Courier e-edition arrived in my inbox. As is normally the case, the e-mail featured approximately five news briefs with a little photograph next to each one. Below is a screenshot of a news brief concerning the revised English translation of the Roman Missal:

Does anybody else find it interesting that the Courier chose to display an image of St. Mary downtown, a parish that barely follows the current translation of the Roman Missal?  St. Mary downtown, the parish that features inclusive language throughout the liturgy, use of the Apostle’s Creed instead of the Nicene, lay homilies, liturgical dance, laypeople standing around the altar during the consecration, and an assortment of other abuses not called for by the Missal. I mean, if there’s one image of a parish to display for this news story, isn’t St. Mary downtown the last one you would pick?

    The diocese could save money by not even sending St. Mary’s a copy of the new missal. The folks in charge there won’t use it, anyway.

  2. Louis E. says:

    That would provide the next bishop with grounds for closing them down,no?

  3. Gen says:

    Church closures are a painful thing, Louis. I pray the people of St. Mary’s never have to experience what many Catholics are experiencing and will experience in coming years. No one should ever delight in seeing a church of the “opposition,” as it were, shut down.
