Vatican to take action on gay-community Masses in London?

Catholic World News - October 10, 2012

The Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith (CDF) is preparing to take action to curb abuses at regularly scheduled Masses in London's Soho section, according to a German magazine.

Katholisches reports that the special Eucharistic celebrations at Our Lady of the Assumption, which take place twice each month, have drawn the critical attention of Archbishop Gerhard Müller, the new prefect of the CDF. The liturgies--which are heavily advertised among homosexual groups, and involve prominent display of symbols such as the rainbow banner--have drawn criticism from conservative Catholics.

Archbishop Vincent Nichols of Westminster has insisted that the Masses "are not occasions for confusion or opposition concerning the positive teaching of the Church on the meaning of human sexuality or the moral imperatives that flow from that teaching." The CDF is now questioning that claim, the German magazine claims.
