[quote=ByzCath]By who’s definition of generous.
I have asked this before and it has been ignored. Who is to fund a Trad Latin Mass if there is not enough taken in tithes at such a Mass? It costs, the bishop must provide for the priest and the church the Mass is celebrated in. There is not always enought going to the Mass to keep it going.
I ANSWERED YOUR QUESTION ABOUT FUNDING! YOU HAVE CHOSEN TO IGNORE ME!!!
Here is my answer from the above thread:
One does not have to be an FSSP or ICR priest to offer the Tridentine Mass. The three churches in the Archdiocese of Chicago that have the Tridentine Mass every Sunday are not FSSP or ICR. The Masses are said by diocesean priests or by priests of a religious order, such as the Augustinians and SVD’s. The idea that there can be no Tridentine Mass because it would cost too much to bring in an FSSP or ICR priest is absurd.
It seems you deliberately ignore people who answer your questions and then complain that you’re being ignored. Stop it, it’s beneath you.
[quote=ByzCath]These two paragraphs contain nothing but disrespect and slander. You paint to broad with this brush and I think you need to retract it.
It is statements like this that make others dislike your attitude.
First of all, it’s too broad with this brush, not to broad with this brush. Your use of grammar is incorrect. I point this out because you could use some humility.
Here are the two paragraphs you mention:
**An Apostolic Administration means the local bishop can no longer be disobedient to the Holy See, as they would not have any control over the Tridentine Mass. They could go on with their abuses and the Latin Mass could go on with all its reverence.
What the local bishops fear is an increase of attendance at the Latin Mass, thus proving all their abuses and wreckovation of churches are wrong.**
You said these two paragraphs contain nothing but disrespect and slander without giving any reason. We’re supposed to believe something because you said so?
Granted, not all local bishops are disobedient. There are bishops who obey the Holy Father and have been generous in allowing the Tridentine Mass. However, the clear majority of bishops are not obedient to the Holy Father.
I suppose there are no abuses in the Mass. I suppose bishops like Mahony and his gang are obedient to the Holy Father. I suppose bishops like Weakland didn’t wreckovate any churches. I suppose if I stick my head in the sand like you everything is fine.
I’m sick and tired of your attitude towards the Tridentine Mass and anyone who wants to attend it. You accuse me of painting with too broad of a brush but label me as a trad. If you would take time to read what I write instead of putting words in my mouth you would know I attend the Novus Ordo Mass daily. I have never and will never deny the validity and licitness of a Mass promulgated by the Vicar of Christ. I agree with Fr. Corapi when he says Vatican II has been a blessing for the Church. Despite all of this, I’m sure you’ll go right on labelling me as a trad because it fits your warped, pre-conceived notion of anyone who likes the Tridentine Mass.
You’re nothing but a pompous blowhard who is in dire need of humility!
