Father Zuhlsdorf: "A word to biters of the consecrated hand"

CATEGORY: SESSIUNCULUM — Fr. John Zuhlsdorf @ 2:51 pm

"A friend just phoned to tell me about a discussion on a "trad" forum.

I went there and read for a while.

In this discussion some people were publicly bad mouthing priests who have been celebrating the TLM and denigrating their ministry.

They claim these priests not Catholic enough, not fully or really Catholic. Not Catholic like they are..."

Tragic, really. It is hard, arguably impossible, to find a better priest than Father Echert and now these folks are sniping about petty things. I hope he's their confessor and presents them with an appropriate penance, like having to attend Mass at St. Joan of Arc so they will learn to appreciate what they have!!

Monica - you are so right- between Fr. Altier and Fr. Echert - who could even hope, much less ask for better priests? Incredible.
