Today at Rorate I see two very useful pieces.
First, Joseph Shaw, Chairman of the Latin Mass Society (join even if you are not in the UK) in which he eviscerates one of the most embarrassing of the papalatrous left, Austen Ivereigh, for his latest insult strewn attack on people who prefer, or even just respect, the Traditional Latin Mass. HERE Ivereigh had written an absurdly long B as in B – S as in S laden sneer at just sort of publication for that sort of thing, Commonweal. Shaw drills into what Ivereigh was really trying to say. Ivereigh thinks you are “corruption”.
Next, Peter Kwasniewski has a close look at Archbp. Roche, Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship, the origin of the Dubious Dubia and their Responsa. HERE In a recent interview Roche displayed a rather casual relationship with Truth. As Peter says, Roche
“does not merely tell lies, but says the exact opposite of the truth. However, he will not leave his opponents speechless. One can hardly read a paragraph of this article without cringing at his befuddlement.”
Neither of these pieces are pleasant to read. Then again, reading police reports about crime scenes isn’t pleasant either, but the reports are instructive: they tell you about the evidence of crimes, and a crime has been perpetrated against the people of God and Tradition.
We have to know what has been perpetrated, who the perps are, and who is covering for the perps.
