Therefore every scribe who has been trained for the kingdom of heaven is like a householder who brings out of his treasure what is new and what is old.
Quote: "The congregation included large numbers of young people and families and Cardinal Castrillón and during the Mass, a message of welcome from Cardinal Cormac Murphy-O’Connor was read out and the Westminster Cathedral choir sang Palestrina’s Missa Sacerdos et Pontifex."This has to be one of the most strung along paragraphs I have encountered since elementary school. Where did this person learn to write?Aside from that it is merely a bare recitation of what was there on the surface, Romanita and all.
What's more it links to traditionalcatholic.org.uk
Not just a generous Press Release, but a link to the traditionalcatholic pictures of the event. Next time it will be probably be advertised in advance.
Now you see, here's why I won't ever be in any kind of diplomatic post.When I read this:“They had a private conversation at which Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos expressed his gratitude for the generous way in which the Bishops of England & Wales had exercised the indult given to them by Pope Paul VI and for their reception of the recent Motu Proprio.I burst out laughing. One has to keep a straight face in diplomacy.
I like the last sentence:“The Bishops will always endeavour to be faithful to the requests of the Holy Father with regards to the Motu Proprio.”I won't hold my breath.
Good. Perhaps Damian Thompson will now recant and agree not to write about the Gregorian Rite or the Bishops of England & Wales for the next eight years. His recent article in "The Spectator" has, in my view, done great harm. What we needed following the Pont. High Mass was encourage the faithful to attend the Gregorian Rite frequently and ask their PP's for the Gregorian Rite in Parishes where it is not celebrated. Did Cardinal Castrillon not specifically instruct the faithful at the Mass not to engage in polemics against the Ordinary Form? In caritate Xp.,Bryan Dunne
Leohara:Quite, well one hopes so.Unfortunately, my Bishop has said in the past that 'we don't always have to do what Rome says'.Considering that none of our Bishops turned up to the Mass celebrated by Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos, what hope is there?Sadly, our Bishops just seem to ignore Rome when it suits.
“The Bishops will always endeavour to be faithful to the requests of the Holy Father with regards to the Motu Proprio.”'endeavour'!!! - tantamount to insubordination, best dealt with by courts martial if they were subject to military discipline...now wouldn't that be a good idea!
