Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam

Essential thinking for reading Catholics.

OK, riddle me this...

Why is it that, for most Bishops, a politician who has been supportive of abortion has to search his/her heart before going to receive Communion (in effect, allowing them to decide their own worthiness) but for many of these same Bishops, a priest who wishes to say Mass according to the Extraordinary Form of the Latin Rite is given no such courtesy (i.e., must jump through all manner of hoops to prove he is "worthy" of saying Mass in this manner)?

Please, someone enlighten me.
