We have the post-Conciliar liberal episcopacy to thank for working unremittingly to introduce the desired illness: they managed to empty the seminaries with a swiftness no persecution could rival. And finally, having presented us with the disease, they gleefully produce the medicine.

Diogenes, as always, nails it! We are witness to this in Albany NY and out in Los Angeles. There is nothing more painful to an orthodox Catholic than to watch a layperson be preceded by line of priests in procession down the aisle of a church, to celebrate a service of carols and readings. I hope never to witness this again.

MMMmmm, I had to drive an hour away for my daughter to receive an award from the Bishop, the bishop and the nun/pastoral assistant, who was dressed in long robes, walked up the aisle....there was music they both spoke, there were some readings......NO mass was offered (which I presume to mean Jesus was not invited in person) and it was over.....we had cookies and punch, then left. It was a letdown. Our Bishop comes to this area once in awhile, but NEVER offers mass. I sometimes wonder if he has a personal relationship with the Lord he would like to share with us, of if he thinks of himself as a celebrity who doesn't need Jesus with him? It is a special pet peeve of mine. ((now I have to go say my ten Hail Marys!))
