Editor: As a product of sixteen years of Catholic education, including seminary, I was disturbed by the letter about the Latin Mass. Anyone who thinks that changes in recent years like the English (or Spanish) Mass, altar girls, and standing for Communion, after 20 centuries of tradition, make for heresy and “slavery to liberalism” and some New World Order, is simiply misguided and ignorant about what religion is.

Religion is not about such trivial matters. It is about Ten Commandments and the Sermon on the Mount. It’s not about calling church leaders Pharisees or slaves of the New World Order either. Such claims are just political claptrap. They belong in the trash, along with the old jokes about Dominus vobiscum and Benny’s got the dominoes.
