It’s the 15th Sunday after Pentecost in the Vetus Ordo and the 23rd Sunday of the Novus Ordo.
Was there a GOOD point made in the sermon you heard at your Sunday Mass of obligation?
Tell about attendance especially for the Traditional Latin Mass. I hear that it is growing. Of COURSE.
Any local changes or (hopefully good) news?
I have some thoughts about the Sunday Epistle reading posted at One Peter Five.
Paul wrote to a community that was being divided by false teachers introducing error and “backwardist” practices. Do we not now see a Church being torn at by those who would return us to the flesh-embracing years of the 60’s and 70’s? Some throw the epithet “backwardist” around concerning those who desire continuity across generations and geography. True “backwardists” are those who seem to be focused only so far back and so far away as their own backsides. In proposing that everything that was done before the Second Vatican Council needs to be reinterpreted and even replaced with some manifestly inorganic “development,” the true “backwardists” are wont to invoke the Holy Spirit. I tremble for some of them, who really ought to know better. Because:
Do not be deceived; God is not mocked, for whatever a man sows, that he will also reap (v. 7).
