Mind your language Fr. Z!!

Image result for Father Zuhlsdorf

A reader informed us about a so-called Fr. Z (photo above) who used nice language as a way of convincing people (piffle = ****). So it seems that this Blog is causing interest, which is not our raison d’être. Our aim remains that of ensuring the celebration of the Extraordinary Form of the Roman Rite in Malta and Gozo.  Having just one Tridentine Mass every Sunday evening in a small chapel in a town - Birkirkara - prone to flooding in winter is not enough. There is a huge demand but the supply is not made available. Maltese Catholics deserve better.

Turning to "Fr. Z" (and why use a stage-name?), we reproduce his message below.

I have had some questions about a rumor going around that dramatic changes are going to be imposed on the older, traditional Form of Roman Rite.  Someone thinks that the new Lectionary and calendar will be imposed on the 1962 Missale sometime in 2018.
I respond: Piffle.   Even, bull piffle!
No.  Won’t happen.
In addition, I checked with my various peeps.  No.  Won’t happen.  Can’t happen.
So, you can relax and stop sending me mail about this.
The moderation queue is ON."
This is the same character who posted this very Catholic teaching some years ago. We leave to our readers any further comments.
