Last Canadian Christmas (pre-covid)
I was intrigued and moved by this post by the talented but often irascible Steve Skojec of 1 Peter 5. It goes far to explain why ol’ Steve roars like a lion at his critics instead of ignoring them, befriending them, or getting off Twitter. Many leaders among lay traditionalist Catholic men often express anger and disappointment in their writing, thus giving more fuel to the “mad trad” stereotype. But we live in difficult times, so it would be odd not to be angry and disappointed at least some of the time.
By the way, I just thought of a priest-journalist’s recent suggestion that children and young people be forbidden to attend the Traditional Latin Mass and laughed. I assumed, when I first heard about this, that he was either trolling or trawling for attention–or both.
