A friend points out: “The number of Luthies who kneel is substantial, like in Scandanavia. Francis not kneeling has nada to do with ecumenism.”
I have a dear friend, an old professor down in ______. He’s what you might call the father of the TLM down there. A few years ago, I was at his house sipping bourbon and branch water on his back porch. He’s an encyclopedia on the history of the Liturgical Movement. He knows the personalities of all the vermin like he met them. Anyway, he was speculating on the real motive of behind the nightmare.
I remember he took a sip, furrowed his brow, and said, “It simply comes down to Satan will not see Christ adored. That’s all it comes down to, and all he needed were a couple of willing scoundrels to make that happen.”
