The director of the Angelus Press Fr. Kenneth Novak, SSPX, sent me a nice note as a follow up. I cordially post it here:
Thanks, Fr. Novak, for the possibility that this review took "courage", though I really don’t so. I was just trying to be fair.
I may disagree with some foundational arguments used by some members of the SSPX. I have bones to pick only with those who use overly harsh rhetoric to criticize the Roman Pontiff and other prelates. Happily they are rare. Most of the SSPX priests I have met are good fellows, whom I believe would choose clearer unity with Rome like a shot, were they able to perceive that they would be treated fairly…. a real concern, I know.
And when I see a good book, I’ll call it a good book!
What I think we must do is continually extend good will in the hope of more perfect unity in near future.
Oremus, Fr. Novak, libenter pro invicem.
