What else has Brian McCall written?
It's disappointing that someone would drive 75 miles to assist at an Indult unless they were fairly uninformed of the more profound problems with Vatican II. This does not include someone who writes articles for "The Remnant". A trad writer who assists at an indult over a trad group is compromised in his mindset.
Just to clarify, it is Michael Matt
, not Brian McCall, who drives to the Indult Mass
. Michael Matt reveals in an article in the Sept 10, 2012 issue of The Remnant
that his family drives 45 minutes (a correction) one way every Sunday to attend the Indult Mass in the Minneapolis/St. Paul Diocese (see "From the Editor's Desk", p.2, column 4, near the bottom).
The amazing part about the article is that M. Matt is upset with the Archbishop of the Minneapolis/St. Paul Archdiocese for coming out with a new requirement that any child who wishes to receive First Communion, even those who are homeschooled, must be enrolled in a "parish process of preparation
". They must participate in all of its communal dimensions (rituals, prayer services, etc.) and any other requirements determined by the pastor. This, of course, means the use of the new Catechism
, the avoidance of which is not doubt one of the reasons he chose to homeschool in the first place.
He fears that the children would be forced to "imbibe the deadly poison" not only of impiety, but also of heterodoxy and scandal
. He obviously does not understand that this is why the Resistance is opposed to signing with Rome; that this would become a way of life for all of Tradition if the SSPX signs with Rome. He obviously does not understand that it is not just the Latin Tridentine Mass that we fight for, but all of the Catholic Faith, whole and entire. He needs to take a crash course on the crisis in the Church before it is too late! He'd better hurry before ABL's books are impossible to acquire, even on Amazon.com!
