disturbing homily

I went to evening Mass on Friday and the priest, "Fr. Visitor" who was filling in for our vacationing pastor. Fr. Visitor made a snarky remark about the Tridentine Mass and the Holy Father and prayed that the Holy Father restore the practice of letting diocesan priests and bishops reccomend who their new achbishop or cardinal is going to be and having the Vatican simply rubber stamp it. I was horrified. You have only to look at the Boston pedophila scandal to know that having one of the "local boys" elevated to superior of the diocese would not necassarily be a good idea. Fr. Visitor is about 65 to 70 so I'll assume that he's one of those souls who's theology was formed in the 60s or 70s.

Pray for our priests.

I've experienced the very same thing concerning a priest snigger and snipe at the TLM from the pulpit, no less.

Think about it, Dymph... these guys either hate or are afraid of the Latin Mass. And that begs the question "WHY!?"

We both know the reason.
