Support Fr. Tim

Fr. Tim Finnigan over at the Hermeneutic of Continuity has a copy of Elena Curti's (the Tablet a.k.a. 'the Bitter Pill') article about his parish and his interpolated response. His is a humble, moderate and balanced response as befits a Catholic pastor. It's a shame that a Catholic periodical couldn't be bothered to take a more balanced and sympathetic view of what priests like Fr. Tim are trying to do - restore solemnity and beauty to the Liturgy, to the worship of God. Hasn't it occurred to them that 40 years of liberalism has not just gotten us nowhere, it has lead us well away from the true path; a radical pro-abortionist in the White House elected by substantial numbers of Catholic voters should be screaming that out to us! All Fr. Tim is trying to do is co-operate with the Holy Father and help restore the Church's Liturgy to what it should be and in this way give people the most truly beautiful way to heaven ever. Go visit his site and drop him a few words of support and then back that up by keeping him in your prayers. If we don't look after our own who will we look after?

The Tablet should've borne in mind the axiom 'There's no such thing as bad publicity'. I'm certain that Fr Finigan's congregation will increase as a result of all this media attention.

It isn't the Council's fault that we end up with the choice of a foreign warmonger OR a domestic warmonger in office. It isn't Catholics' fault, either. God knows, we have worked hard to even just stem abortion's onslaught. We are but 23% of this nation's population.

Since this post blames, I won't be visiting Fr. Tim/article. The Liturgy is the Liturgy, the Mass is the Mass. If it's about our tastes, let us, rather, go to the opera and stop harassing others who go to Mass and who uphold the Holy Father and the one before him and the one before him and the one before him, etc.. Trads needs to stop their dividing ways. If anyone doesn't like their Mass, they are free to speak with the Pastor. It requires guts, tho'. That's why pastors aren't often spoken with, but they do listen.
