I am not a great fan of SSPX Bp. Williamson, as you know. Though from time to time he hits one out of the park, his ideas about many things are strange and destructive. Broken clocks, and all.
I profoundly hope that he will retire to a quiet corner and remain there, out of public view.
For all of that, I am sorry to see him so hounded by the press.
The newsies love this sort of thing, because they can really sharpen their fangs and go to work. You can also hear their spittle go splick on their keyboards as they wait for another chance to hurt him and the Church, which tar with the same brush.
The Lord came into the world to save sinners, and the Church is the sinners refuge. The Church is a hospital for the sick, even a hospice.
I worry for the souls of those who show no mercy.
In the meantime, you can see what fruits this flap is bearing and what the press is fanning with the help of the profoundly stupid.
