Clever Commentary

March 7, 2007

Has the Pope’s long-awaited document on the Tridentine Latin Mass been leaked? A document purportedly summarising its provisions is being frantically emailed around the Catholic world…

…I do hope all this is true. The Tridentine Mass is solemn and exquisitely beautiful – and, therefore, much loathed by the arthritic 1960s trendies who have seized control of Catholic liturgy pretty much everywhere.

But I must end with a health warning. Even if this is an authentic leak of a draft of the document, the forces of reaction in the Church (meaning Left-wing bishops) have plenty of tricks up the sleeves of their polyester vestments.

Read it all here.

    And yet…if the Holy Spirit wants the Mass of the Ages to be released from its shackles, all the left-wing bishops in all the polyester vestments in the world can’t do a thing to stop it.

    Many are the plans in the mind of a man, but it is the purpose of the LORD that will be established. (Proverbs 19:21)

    Fr. Gonzales, You might want to delete the word “health” in the last paragraph or change it to something else…or add a sentence about something health-related at the end of that paragraph.

    Just a thought….

    Thank you.

    I guess if they were my words I would have said it very differently, but I guess the author knows what he wants to say. It’s still funny though.
