Otherwise it is easy to lose hope, and lose faith in those who are tasked with implementing Summorum Pontificum. If this kind of story were to be made public more often, there may be less letters flooding certain Vatican offices...Brian Kopphttp://www.blogger.com/profile/02575906703463685178noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6570809348314913884.post-89256938113210294602008-10-07T15:49:00.000-04:002008-10-07T15:49:00.000-04:00No surprise, except that it was a phone call inste...No surprise, except that it was a phone call instead of a letter.<BR/><BR/>The Vat's going all techno!Dad29http://www.blogger.com/profile/08554276286736923821noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6570809348314913884.post-7361141149782057402008-10-07T14:35:00.000-04:002008-10-07T14:35:00.000-04:00Such phone calls occur more often than people are ...Such phone calls occur more often than people are aware. I know of at least two dioceses whose bishops got the warning, and this was in the days before Summorum Pontificum. Of those two, one is still hedging but is near retirement anyway, while the other is doing nothing to impede it.<BR/><BR/>Given the awareness of concerns raised over the internet, one can expect these kinds of phone calls to become more common.David L Alexanderhttp://www.blogger.com/profile/13871706129906941567noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6570809348314913884.post-17528771357440417362008-10-07T09:05:00.000-04:002008-10-07T09:05:00.000-04:00We were traveling in Maine in August and had the p...We were traveling in Maine in August and had the pleasure of attending the TLM at the Cathedral of the Immaculate Conception in Portland on August 17th. <BR/><BR/>But Maine is a huge state; many Americans don't comprehend how large it is, and it is blatantly obvious that 2 TLMs are inadequate to provide for the needs of the faithful.Brian Kopphttp://www.blogger.com/profile/02575906703463685178noreply@blogger.comtag:blogger.com,1999:blog-6570809348314913884.post-3490545026308174632008-10-07T07:04:00.000-04:002008-10-07T07:04:00.000-04:00In our diocese of Portland, Maine there are now 2 ...In our diocese of Portland, Maine there are now 2 TLMs being offered weekly. Unfortunately they are both in the southern half of the state, 3 hours from our home mid-coast. With a diocese covering 35,000 square miles, it is as if SP never happened. We still have the same liberal NO Mass, no confession offered in many parishes, one priest "covering" 4 parishes... <BR/><BR/>I wish our bishop would get a phone call from a cardinal, "Give the people the TLM or..."kathttp://www.blogger.com/profile/00138818343753454140noreply@blogger.com
