Scope and content

There are no unauthorised mass centres in this parish. The more ardent followers of the Tridentine Rite either follow Fr Bull or have ceased attending Mass.
Is this request prompted by the Lordships having second thoughts? A change of mind would have much harm: those who accept the changes will feel betrayed and the Tridentinists will feel vindicated. The authority of the Church will again be called into question and appear weak. "The very authority vested in the Holy Father will seem to have moved to the 'Prophet in out Time', Archbishop Lefebvre."
