Amateur psychology corner




One salient point that many commentators may have missed in all the brouhaha about Mgr Basil Loftus and his peculiarly extreme animus against the Extraordinary Form of Holy Mass and the hermeneutic-of-continuiy more generally, is the fact that his late father was a leading light in the early days of the Latin Mass Society.


Maybe the old Viennese Fraud was onto something after all....Or as the psychiatrist in an episode of Fawlty Towers put it: “There’s enough material here for an entire conference.”

It's a terrible sight. I don't always agree with Fr Mildew (as I'm sure he doesn't with me) but his treatment was shameful.
