To: Mark in the Old South
Traditionally speaking, the Church has spent centuries working on issues, making certain that a decision was right. Now, we have a major change once or twice a year.
Would you be surprised to see another new Mass before the decade is out?
There seems to be no end to it. The Church resembles a US public university in this respect.
Isn't the Church supposed to take care of its flock? If so, what is to be said about the Great Falling Away we have experienced over the past generation?
Re: "Would you be surprised to see another new Mass before the decade is out?"
I think they may be working toward the same thing the Episcopalian Church is rumored to be doing as we speak. Before I converted I was on websites that was heavily involved in dealing with the cesspool that is the ECUSA.
Several of them were complaining about a new Book of Common Prayer that was to be on CD. It was to have dozens of liturgies, such as a feminist Communion and services, gay services, liberation theology etc etc etc. It was rumored to have unlimited "possibilities".
I thought the idea outlandish and unlikely to get off the ground. Silly moi, that was before I heard about clown Mass, Bali style Liturgical dance, cookie Mass, picnic Mass, and on and on.
I mean really, how far is the Catholic Church from this right now? Why go through the political bloodbath of changing the rite when they are permitting most anything now. And with nary a word of discouragement, they save that for SSPX.
Getting back to the subject of the Thread: If these wayward SSPX priests want reconciliation with the RC as it is right now, I say they should go ahead and do it. I am sure the Indult people would love to have them if they want them but that isn't good enough for these few priests. They want to drag everyone one with them, even those who have moral objections. It makes one wonder what their real agenda really is.
