If bishops want to have any credibility at all when they ponder how to implement Traditionis custodes (the best way is simply to apply can. 87 and ignore it entirely), they have to say the Traditional Latin Mass for people themselves. Otherwise, bishops are merely “experts of the law” who, as Jesus describes, “bind heavy and insupportable burdens, and lay them on men’s shoulders; but with a finger of their own they will not move them.” (Matthew 23:4)
Therefore, I was please to see that His Excellency, Most Rev. John Doerfler (whom I knew many years tangentially in St. Paul when he was in minor seminary) of the Diocese of Marquette, celebrated a Pontifical Low Mass. If I am not mistaken, his predecessor, then Bp. Alex Sample regularly did the same at the cathedral.
I have limited photos, but here is one.
Fr. Z kudos to Bp. Doerfler for doing this.
For you readers… I urge you to ACTION!
