Fr. Kus, St. Mary's, Wilmington,
Alright, I have to bring this back up because my question in the comment box of Caveman's post below was never answered. However, I also have some other thoughts so instead of just restating my question, I will once again cut and paste what Fr. Kus wrote in his Sunday bulletin and insert my comments in black. Fr.'s words are in red with my emphasis in bold and comments in black:
Fourth, beginning the last Sunday of August, the diocese will host a “forma extraordinaria” Mass at 7 p.m. at St. Mary’s upon my invitation[Again, I ask is this true? I do not think it is. It is my understanding of the situation in Wilmington that Fr. Kus is your average run of the mill "spirit of Vatican II" type. There is a name for that type of Catholic, but out of respect for the office he holds I will refrain from using it. Nevertheless, as I understand it from Wilmington locals, this priest has time and again through his actions and his words made it abundantly clear that he absolutely hates the TLM, he hates traditional Catholics, and he hates everything "pre-conciliar." So if my understandings are accurate and not the result of misinformation, someone please tell me how it is that such a priest now all of a sudden finds it in his heart to open his parish's doors so willingly to the TLM? What has changed such that he would actually INVITE traditional Catholics into his parish?]
It will occur the last Sunday of each month at 7 p.m. This Mass was common in modern times of our Church history but declined greatly when the Second Vatican Council asked us to go back to the ancient Mass, i.e., the Mass conducted in the language of the people [Here Fr. provides evidence to support one of my understandings, that being that he is a "spirit of Vatican II" type. Much like a liberal in politics, Fr. has just rewritten Church liturgical history and tradition to support his own ideology and agenda. How is it that such a priest would ever be able to tolerate the TLM and TLM parishiners in his parish? Even if it is just for one Sunday a month at a most inconvenient time].
The forma extraordinaria Mass is a diocesan event, not a ministry of St. Mary parish [Ah HA! So here we go. This is more like it. So all you traditionally minded Catholics can pretty much go to hell. Now we are getting back to how we truly feel].
Our parish will continue to only offer the ancient [Liberal tactic. Just make up history if history does not support your position.] form of the Mass in English and Spanish[Just a bizarre comment]. For more information on the forma extraordinaria Mass, contact the parish in Dunn, NC
[Now maybe I am just being too sensitive, but this last sentence ticked me off more than any of the other garbage written in this paragraph. For your information, that "parish in Dunn" is Sacred Heart. This priest seems to me to be filled with so much hate for the traditional faith that he is unable to even utter the formal name of one of the few parish churches in the diocese where Church Tradition is loved and cherished. Am I being too sensitive, or did this last sentence rub anyone else the wrong way?]
Anyway, I just thought I would bring this topic back to the fore because this was such an offensive little paragraph that I think it should continue to be discussed by all those who care about the state of the Church. On a positive note, the enemies of Tradition are making themselves known. Its no longer like the old days when they did everything by stealth. They are very easy to identify and avoid now.
