EMAIL FROM FATHER JERIMIAH CREMIN PP KILBRITTAIN, CORK.
HIS SECOND MESSAGE
MY SECOND REPLY
Very often, people and priests I’ve never met feel the need to come at me with all their teeth bared and all their fangs outstretched.
I wrongly published Fr Jerry’s pic in error and removed it immediately heard from him.
It would have been wrong and unjust not to do so.
Mind you, my mistake was a bit forgivable as both Fr Cremins share the same surname and look quite alike.
I mostly reply gently to take the sting out of the correspondence, and it generally has the effect of making the other party more relaxed – as it did in this case.
I’m sure that Fr Jerry is a nice man and a good priest to his parishioners.
I’m sure if we met, we could be friendly and chatty and probably agree to differ.
He seems to be a supporter of the Latin Mass.
My main objection to the Latin Mass is the fact that it is being used as a weapon against Vatican II, Francis, and the Vatican II Mass that I celebrate.
I get it that many bishops and priests do not like this blog or its author.
But as Diarmuid Martin told me:
“The truth is still the truth, even if its revolting”
