The “reform of the reform” is getting a lot of internet time these days, given what occurred with Crd Sarah and the turn-around situation and PF coming down on it quite quickly.

I have no objection to those who want the old Mass. I think that there should be churches in dioceses that have one or the other and the people will show which they prefer with their feet. However, I think the “reform of the reform” has been a smoke screen for those who want to mandate the old rite for all. That I really object to….reyanna
