… and there’s talk of boycotting MR3 on theological grounds. The Irish bishops ended their national meeting two weeks ago, but a response to uppity priests isn’t expected until the big feast day on Thursday.
(Fr Seán McDonagh of the Association of Catholic Priests, pictured, left) said if Rome was willing to allow some members of the church to continue to use “the Pius V missal” because they couldn’t in conscience use the new one, he didn’t see why Rome could not accommodate those who say they cannot “in conscience use this new one for theological reasons.”
I don’t like the equating of the two, but you can’t deny that Rome itself has let a big draft into the Church with the 1988 indult. An indult which has yet to achieve the main goal it had.
