ST. LOUIS (RNS) An Illinois priest who refused to recite the prayers at Mass as written has been fired, a sign that bishops may have little tolerance for priests who refuse to conform to a new Mass that took effect last year. By Tim Townsend.

    So, semantics trumps the devotion and love of a longtime priest. I guess the Church doesn’t have to pay for his long term care now.

    Good start.
    Now, if they’d just fire all the child molesting priests and those who covered for them they’d make an impact: namely, the more rapid destruction of an empire that is a blight on humanity.

    I think that they should take a closer look to this situation and trying to do the best they can from this, because it is not so okay what is happening in the present..and if no one does nothing..the things can be worst.
