It looks like Pete and RePete are having a field day with my post, insinuating motives that they wished to read into them. Parmedicgirl and Kathleen, kindly read my post again and tell me where exactly I have said this:
[quote]Kathleen, it’s obvious that some people, especially the ones who post here in the TC forum,** are as against the TLM as some of the bishops who refuse to allow it. They want their Mass, but they don’t care for us to have ours**
My children when they were younger and now my grandchildren have a tendancy to want things for themselves and forget all the rest of the family.
I tried to help Kathleen understand our bishop’s position, as he is new and has his hands full trying to place priests in parishes where there are none. Have you two so little compassion or understanding? Lighten up, please, and before you attempt to put mouths into my words, read what I wrote with a charitable mind.
In fairness, Kathleen, the bishop has only been installed three years. If you look at the diocesan paper today, several priests are assigned to two parishes. We just don’t have enough to go around.
That’s only THIS year. During the past several times that assignments were listed, many priests serve more than one parish, not just the ones listed in today’s paper.
Just how can you expect them to add a TLM for a small minority of those who desire it? It isn’t very feasible. Would you insist he have an additional mass now just for the latin rite people?
These are the facts we face, and our Bishops are more aware than perhaps the Pope who has not taken this into account with his decision. You may have to adjust your preferences and go with the flow, much though it be to your disliking.
