Priestless Sundays in the service of ecumanism?

Does anyone else out there have priests that on ecumenical Sunday go off to a Luteran church or Epicapalean church to preach and don’t have Mass that weekend, we have a preacher from the above listed churches lead a prayer service instead of Mass?

Dear Jane,

I can’t think of anything more anti-ecumenical than that–because it is not honest. What does this say about the preeminence of the Mass? Your priest needs his head examined! We can only personify a true ecumenical spirit by being faithful to our own faith traditions.

Fr. Vincent Serpa, O.P.
