A perfectly sound and good petition aimed at respectfully requesting the Holy Father to say Mass in the Extraordinary Form soon (but it would be sensible if possibly it could take place at a traditional pilgrimage due to be held in November)...has ruffled a few feathers.
Not among the charismatic camp, or the camp camp but among the traditional camp.
It appears that an organisation formed expressly, in 1964, to protect liturgical abuse in the Church (hats off! what a great job they have done!) feels that they are being associated with this petition.
Ahem. Just run that past me once more.
A traditional organisation is upset because they think they might be associated with a good initiative to restore the Latin Mass.....right, time for a quiet moment I think.
Well no one, as far as I am aware, has mentioned this nameless organisation. So what is going on?
I checked the background to the group and find that they are a sort of federation of organisations that includes the various Latin Mass Societies around the world.
Oh well, that it explains it then.
And please, please, give the petition a shove on your blog. It is a perfectly reasonable exercise and it is not connected in any way to U no who!
