On Thursday, an outgoing rector did a very disturbing interview with the National Schismatic Reporter (as lovingly named by my friend Fr. Z). In the interview, Fr. Brown attacked those priests who had been formed during the Pontificates of Benedict XVI and John Paul II as being overly focused “on the sacerdotal nature of the priesthood” and excessively centered on “small things” like “the cassock, Communion only on the tongue and not in the hand, to name two.” The article was quite unfair and judgmental to say the least. I was planning on writing a response, but came across a great response by good young priest from Maine, Fr. Kyle Doustou.
I must ask, when will the rigid liberals get off their high horse and stop judging those priests who don’t think like they do?
Anyway, go over to the Liturgy Guy and read Fr. Doustou’s response: “A Young Priest Sets the Record Straight for the Catholic Left.”
