About 2 years ago, in a meeting of all EMCH and the priest in charge of them, I advised all that the indult had expired. I even had the paperwork from the USCCB & our bishop that indeed it did expire. The priest shot me down saying, we should respect our bishop above all. I could never understand that this priest said this but could not see what the bishop was stating on the diocese website. No one, NOT ONE EMHC wanted to see the letters!:mad:
The lay are still purifying the vessels. And last Sunday we had a visiting priest, who after communion just sit down and a server who is also a MC reposed the Eucharist to the Tabernacle and purified the vessels upon the altar.
After a while all I could do was just shut up & I left.
OH! Just remembered, a few days later the the statement on the diocese website had an addtion to the bishops letter that I did take very personally…“There should be no liturgy police from the laity”:shrug:
