Who Said This?

"For many of us, this is a tough time to be a Catholic. The Church may seem like this old couple, Abraham and Sarah. It is largely ruled by old men, even older than me, who seem out of touch with the world. Every statement that comes from the Vatican seems to provoke more misunderstanding, more embarrassment, more frustration. My indignation with what the Vatican says is only exceeded by my indignation at its wilful misrepresentation by the press. To keep sane I keep repeating the words of, I think, Samuel Johnson: ‘Indignation is the last resort of the fool’."

Obviously we can only assume that the Priest means that the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith is too wishy-washy and lukewarm in its public pronouncements, which could lead some into error, and that he wishes that the Vatican would 'recognise dissent for what it is' more. It will come as no surprise to many that this Priest is adored by The Tablet. For more on this, see The Muniment Room.

Hopefully, it will only a matter of time until the LGBT Masses in Soho are replaced by the TLM, because, pastorally speaking, this is the best way of leading the flock in Soho to draw closer to the Hearts of Jesus and Mary, because if there is one thing that Archbishop Vincent Nichols wants, it is what Pope Benedict XVI wants; for men and women in Soho to grow in the love of God, for, as is becoming more and more apparent over time, these two men are of one mind and one heart on all matters, doctrinal and liturgical.

The Soho Masses are item 1 on the agenda followed by Catholic Schools to be free to ignore Government sex education programmes, followed by freedom for Catholic schools to run their own affairs, followed by....
A busy time ahead.
