Thanks to Jose for bringing this post from exactly two years ago today to my attention. In light of everything that is now being laid bare, may I present this to you once again.
"So why the tumult? Why the separation from the parish, the rejection of the sanctuary, the repudiation of liturgical norms, the aggressive disdain for others (as catalogued by several bishops), and the self-authenticating parallel hierarchy? These are not just unusual practices. These are manifestations of a fundamental difference of belief. And NOWHERE is that fundamental difference made more manifest than in the obstinate refusal to receive communion like the rest of us."
