Tonight I went to the Holy Thursday Mass at my parish. I love my church and have told family that I love the fact that our priest is “traditional”…meaning that he actually adheres to the teachings of the church, speaks out against sin and addresses the importance of confession, is very pro-life, against gay marriage, etc.
So, imagine my dismay when another celebrant introduces himself at the beginning of mass; it is a certain “dissident” bishop in the Detroit area.
I almost got up and walked out (and went to a later mass elsewhere). However, I stayed but felt close to tears. I have worked very hard on my faith these past few years, after almost straying to the “liberal side” myself during grad school. I just don’t understand how my priest would invite him to celebrate Holy Thursday mass. I feel a little betrayed, actually.
Should I say something to my priest about this?
