Sifting: Some Priests are busting their butts running around trying to learn the Extraordinary Mass per the Holy Father’s recent lifting of restrictions on the Mass. And a Pastoral care for their flock who request it:
Some, not so much……:
Pastor of St. Joseph Church in Springfield, MO: “I think that Pope Benedict’s recent decree reviving the old Latin Mass was a step backwards in the implementation of the decrees of the Second Vatican Council. which were approved and promoted by Pope Paul VI”. …. “The Council clearly wanted to give such power to the bishops. But in this too the Council’s teaching is being reversed.I don’t anticipate having a Latin Mass problem in our parish”….”We should all ask ourselves questions like the following: Do we really want to introduce a liturgy emphasizing sin and its expiation in preference to the celebration of the paschal mystery centering on the death and resurrection Christ?”.
“You know then how to discern the face of the sky: and can you not know the signs of the times? “ (Matt 16:3)
“For there shall be a time, when they will not endure sound doctrine; but, according to their own desires, they will heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears” (Tim 4:3)
