The previously unbloody Sacrifice of the Altar
By Fr. Wilson ( articles ) | Jul 28, 2003
There has been a spate of recent stories which made me wish I had the faculty of bi- or trilocation, because I wanted to see what was actually going on and get a sense of the personalities involved. One involved the priest in Houston who was sent on leave after suddenly reverting to the traditional Mass at all three of his parish Sunday Masses. From the point of view of pastoral prudence, it's hard to imagine that this was a good idea. But a good friend of mine studied canon law under this priest in the seminary, thinks very highly of him as a balanced, sensible person... and I'm left thinking that it would be good to know firsthand just what the truth of that situation is.
Here is yet another such story. It's hard to know what to make of this description of the situation. I find myself hoping that the reporter made up the quotes.
