Pope Benedict's Lackey
Even so, I had the pleasure of having dinner tonight with a priest -and some of our younger adults who happened to be in the Presbytery tonight- who is struggling to bring back into the mainstream Church an uber-liberal community, who seem to canonise their own saints and devise their own liturgies. I was amused to hear one member of this community wrote to one of the clergy team who look after their parish when he corrected a liturgical abuse and called him "Pope Benedict's lackey"! It would be a good name for a blog, wouldn't it? I really do admire priests who put up with that type of nonsense week after week after week.
On my day off, on Monday, I was out again eating with another priest of our diocese who has just discovered the Old Rite, the Mass and the Office, it was just so good hearing how both enrich his priesthood.
It is good being a priest you know.
