Born and raised . . .
The bulletin warned us away from my illegal Latin mass church.
It’s a “chapel,” the bulletin said, “that advertises itself as ‘Our Lady Immaculate Roman Catholic Church.'”
But it’s actually not Roman Catholic, we were told, but is run by the St. Pius X society founded by Archbishop Lefebvre, who was excommunicated, etc. etc.
The bulletin quotes the Pope about the “grave offense” involved in adherence to the Society leading to excommunication.
I’m at risk, therefore, by now and then attending the Latin masses at Our Lady Immaculate.
Would my parish consider now and then having a Latin mass, so as to ween me away? For pastoral reasons?
A recent special mass for gays and lesbians at a neighboring parish was a one-time thing.
Maybe have a one-time thing for Latin mass embracers, who make no claims about being born that way but only say they were raised that way?
