Do you see the problem?
…this is really about the old Mass and the life that flows from it. The diocese took no interest in the College until the Fort Worth Star Telegram feature ran and made it clear that the institution’s liturgical life is centered around the old Mass. The old Mass has been the primary topic of its conversation with the diocese since then. Whatever the other problems at the College, and whatever falsehoods and exaggerations they’re hearing from Dr. Marshall, the actions of Msgr. Berg and Bishop Olson (and presumably others above them in the hierarchy) leave no doubt that they are trying to crush the old Mass, and disperse a group of people who are living the traditional faith.
If the Bishop was just concerned about the speakers, he could have set parameters for future speakers. If the Bishop was seriously concerned about the stability of the College, he would have ordered removal of the Blessed Sacrament and complete closure of the chapel, and forbidden the College from calling itself “Catholic.” He didn’t. What he did was attack the Mass and those of his flock attached to it. In doing so he showed himself to be both a fool and a tyrant. He’s acting illegally and unjustly, and he and everyone who is whispering in his ears or carrying out his instructions in order to deprive the College of this matter are doing the Devil’s work.
Editor’s note: Pope Francis and his merry band of ecclesial carpetbaggers are once agfain trying to “mop up” – claiming final victory after the Vatican II revolution and then running off with the “spoils” – much as the post-Civil War carpetbaggers did down south, in the good old United States. No matter how any legal challenge turns out, Fisher-More College has probably already been “killed”. In that event, the Modernists will win another one. There is indeed nothing new, under the sun!
What is it that hath been? the same thing that shall be. What is it that hath been done? the same that shall be done. Nothing under the sun is new, neither is any man able to say: Behold this is new: for it hath already gone before in the ages that were before us. There is no remembrance of former things: nor indeed of those things which hereafter are to come, shall there be any remembrance with them that shall be in the latter end. (Ecclesiastes 1:9-11)
