Summorum Pontificum finds no Sunshine in Florida

We must begin by thanking God for the unbelievable outpouring of opportunity for us to exercise charity and offer up sufferings to be united with those of Our Lord.

If you reside in Florida, get comfortable, get a soothing beverage and, if you are under prescription sedatives or antihypertensives, have them handy...I fear the following may cause you to blow a gasket:

Read this from Pensacola's Bishop Ricard.

Unless I am very gravely mistaken, the basic meaning of the statement issued (and seemingly adopted by all the Bishops in Florida) is: "We will decide who gets the Traditional Latin Mass, and not anyone else, and we don't particularly care what Summorum Pontificum says...if we did, we would have bothered to translate it correctly."

Fr. Z., VERY CORRECTLY, urges us to proceed very carefully. But you may want to have handy teh mailing addresses of both His Eminence, Darío Cardinal Castrillón-Hoyos over at the Ecclesia Dei Commission as well as His Excellency, Archbishop Pietro Sambi.

This, people, won't be pretty.


Now, what have I told you ?
