Bishop Declan Lang is a canon lawyer and decided to put Francis’ ban on latin Mass into immediate effect.
In doing so he is promulgating the news rules from Rome.
He cannot be accused of doing anything wrong but perhaps he can be accused of insensitivity and haste.
It is important that the global RCC proposes one form of the liturgy and bans other forms that are jampots for religious wasps like the nutcases and rebels who use the Latin liturgy to deny the papacy of Francis, the validity of the Second Vatican Council and to promote the homosexual priests who like to crossdress for Mass.
Both JP 11 and Benedict were wrong to create the slippery slope that has led us to where are today.
Francis had to alternative but to strike swiftly and strongly.
The Latin Mass crowd can always go to the SSPX where they will find a warm welcome.
Cardinal to be Arthur Roach, will apply Francis’ instructions to the “t”.
SPECIAL GAY MASSES
Ideally people should attend the Eucharist in their own parish.
Often, nasty PPs send people searching for other churches.
Gay Masses are generally celebrated by gay priests or gay friendly priests.
But at the Eucharist, we gather as Christians, and not as gay, straight or trans.
Special gay Masses would not be necessary if the Church itself, and its priests, were more enlightened and sensitive to the luves of gay Catholics.
