Fr Raven (no relation, alas!) relates a distressing story about clergy under pressure from their superiors for failing to kow-tow to the modernist mores of the last century.
Similar stories can be found elsewhere as the forces of reaction make one last attempt to ossify the culture of the Church in the pseudo-völkisch model of the 1970s.
It brings home to me, again, how much we need to pray for all of our priests: for those leading the Church away from the experiments of the past and for those still unable to see that their marriage to the fashions of the day has left them widowed.
Feed my sheep
[Father,] I beseech You, direct the hearts and wills of the servants of Your Bride, the Holy Church, unto yourself so that they may follow the poor, bleeding, humble, and gentle Lamb of God on the way of the Cross. Make them angels in the shape of men; for after all, they have to administer and distribute the Body and Blood of Your Only Begotten Son! Amen
St Catherine of Siena
