London’s Daily Telegraph reports the idea that Brazilian bishops want Mass to be able to be celebrated online. Can somebody explain what this is all about? Shorely there is shome mishtake?
It reminds me of how the TV Evangelist Ernest Angeley used to scream, “Heal! Heal!” at the TV cameras and invite the listeners at home to place their affected body parts near the television screen. One has to curb the imagination here…
What is really disturbing about this, is the British press yet again making a headline out of nothing, and allowing people who don’t know what they’re talking about to write as if they do know what they’re talking about. The BBC is just as bad: I’ve just finished watching their tribute to Pope John Paul the Great on DVD (not that they called him that mind you)
I, for one, don’t find the moral demands and doctrinal demands of the Catholic faith particularly comforting. What I would find comforting is the sort of liberal cafeteria Catholicism in which I can do what I please.
