Another category of comment ... yet another ... which I have decided to exclude are those which make libelous comments about myself!
Someone has submitted ... three times! ... a claim that my ordination in the Catholic Church was delayed for sexual reasons.
I had hoped that I would never have to deal publicly with that episode, which is best left to moulder in the archives. But the facts are these.
A Catholic bishop, aware of my strong preference for the Extraordinary Form, deemed that I should be refused a 'positive votum' lest I should go around causing liturgical disorder and division.
This was subsequently sorted out on a personal basis. I came to appreciate the motives ... and person! ... of the bishop concerned and, I think, he came to see me in a different light. He asked to perform the Ordination himself, and he leaned over backwards to behave with great graciousness. I am left with no hard feelings against this bishop. On the contrary, I esteem him very highly and acceded to his request that I remember him in my prayers.
The author of the comment seems to have a deep visceral detestation of the Ordinariates and of everybody and everything connected with them. If he is a Christian, I ask him in the name of Christ, and for his own good, his own happiness, to stop reading my blog.
