The critiques of a certain cleric in The Seraph are very interesting because they offer us a glimpse of the mindset of our dysfunctional traddy chapels and the men who run them. ( Although the author makes a very good point about the priests hired by the rich benefactors to offer Mass
The fact that the author believes he is one of two valid bishops is fascinating. At least he comes right out and says so in public, unlike some of his more "meek as a dove" fellow traddy bishops.
I find myself sympathetic with much that he has to say, then jarred by what Dawn has mentioned, the lack of Franciscan charity.
I was particularly put off by the description of a priest who had endured such severe torture in China that he obeys everyone. How is this poor priest considered anything less than a huge, undeserved blessing by his brothers? How is it that traddy priests throughout the US have not been fighting over who gets to help this martyred Catholic priest?
I recommend reading these issues of The Seraph because they offer insight into the history of the US traddy Movement, and its infiltration by the John Birch Society.
