French bishops’ priorities

French bishops’ priorities

  • Frank: You are exhibiting a trait I seen often in certain circles. (This is not meant as an insult, just an observation.) You exhibit a “you’re either with or against us” attitude about the TLM.

    Just because I have no particular preference doesn’t mean I’m opposed to the TLM. I think there should be a universal Indult. I think it should be celebrated wherever people ask for it.

    I just wish most Traditionalists had the same attitude toward those of us who would prefer a reform of the reform, a “Novus Ordo as it should have been.”

  • Frank: I am not your enemy. An apostolic administration might be a good way to deal with this.

    I don’t see what’s inconsistent with thinking that you have a right to the Tridentine Mass while I don’t particularly desire it.

    You may like something and have a right to have it, but I don’t have to want it to defend your right. I don’t see why you’re making a big deal out of this.

    You’re working too hard to turn an ally into an enemy and that’s just not the case.

  • I guess I am not accustomed to anyone who supports the reform of the reform expressing any sympathy for the Traditional Mass.

    There are many more of them than you think. I think many Traditionalists are so used to having a bunker mentality that they don’t stop to consider that there are plenty of people who think like me.
