Faith/Spirituality Forum: Thank You for Clarifying Vatican II
Thank You for Clarifying Vatican II QUESTION from Mary on November 21, 2002 Bro. Ignatius
Thank you for clarifying the Vatican I versus Vatican II issue. Frankly, I just recently became engaged in a discussion about these issues with a friend who attends a traditional Latin Mass. I have been trying to do research on the subject but, as a lay person, I have had difficulty sorting through some of the issues.
I do agree that people should dress appropriately for Mass and I have no problem with head coverings for women and really any of the elements of the Traditional Latin Mass. It is the Mass I remember as a child.
Your analogies were excellent.
I am sending an inquiry to my Archdiocese regarding why the two churches I mentioned in my earlier posting are not recognized by the Archdiocese.
I had been considering attending Mass at one of them until I found out they were not recognized by the Archdiocese.
I really appreciate the time you take to respond to the questions you receive. Reading questions submitted by others and your responses to them has been a great learning experience for me.
Again, Thank You and God Bless You.
ANSWER by John-Paul Ignatius, OLSM on December 19, 2002 Dear Mary:
Thank you for the kind words and I applaud you for your obedience to refrain from these Masses mentioned when you found out they were not approved by the archdiocese.
I am sure the archdiocese will give you a diplomatic and specific response as to why the Archbishop does not approve of these parishes for his flock.
