Lucky parishioners. It's a weirdly common form of blatant clericalism - there's usually not much one can do if a priest is poncing about making up his own version of the Mass and inflicting it on all comers :(

ubi caritas et amor deus ibi est . . . . Besides I think the parish was supportive if you read the article . . . . .

"The action did not sit well with the nearly 500 families at St. Mary's, some of whom are contemplating a letter writing campaign to Braxton. "They're devastated," said Alice Worth, principal at St. Mary's School. "Father Bill is the backbone of our parish."

Love without justice?

I wrote 'all comers'. Mass isn't the property of a priest or a parish, to do with as they wish.
