Of course I was just joking.
But seriously, this is symptomatic of the problems with most of today's clergy which are:
- Some priests honestly think that the Old ritual books have already been burned and need not be resurrected from the ashes, just as they were taught at their theology schools. Probably because their Liturgy professors.
- Some priests are simply too obstinate to think that they can get away with liturgical murder all the time, which unfortunately they always do since no one has ever been tried or penalized for committing horrible liturgical abuses. Does Cardnal Mahoney and St. Vincent School of Theology and Euntes come to mind?
- Some priests, and I think a large number of them, are not even informed about Summorum Pontificum, which strangely enough, in this day and age of the Internet and social media, their bishops or superiors still keep them in the dark.
So, as far as I can assess that campus minister?
He is a pinakbet!
He is a mix of all three.
But on second thought, I love veggies and this Pinoy version of Ratatouille.
But I do not appreciates priests like that campus minister acting that way.
My advice is not to push the issue. Just look for another one who is willing to do it.
