Father John Zuhlsdorf, formerly of St Agnes, now in Rome, gives us some historical perspective on the happenings in that parish this past week.
I am still receiving many messages from people upset about the doings at St. Agnes in St. Paul. People are worried about the changes. Some are afraid St. Agnes will fall apart. Really afraid. Others are angry about Fr. Altier. Really angry.
I have to say that if it weren’t for changes in the past, they wouldn’t have a parish they long to protect now.[snip]
