My deep gratitude.
In the meantime, I note several things about Fishwrap.
First, I think Fishwrap has not mentioned – at least I don’t see it – anything about the Instruction on Summorum Pontificum. They will eventually get to it. I predict they will say that this Instruction means nothing, it’s no big deal, it is only for a few disgruntled troglodytes. Blah blah blah. I respond saying that, if it isn’t an earthquake, it is surely a rumble. And it means that, among other things, the three year study period critics of the Motu Proprio set their hopes on is overrrrr. Summorum Pontificum is here to stay and it was not weakened.
Second, Fishwrap writes favorably about Presbyterians lifting a “ban” on homosexual clergy while writing with disapprobation about Card. Meisner removing the canonical license to teach from a homosexual activist who has, among other things, written offensive things about the Holy Father.
Third, I listened today to a talk today Fishwrap‘s nearly ubiquitous John L. Allen, the only writer they have worth his salt – how I wish he wrote for some other publication. It was pretty good. I don’t agree with all his points, but he makes a reasonable argument. Here. Also, Allen had an interesting piece about “retired” Card. Sodano.
But we must still PROTEST.
