The betrayal of loyal Catholics

Reactions 
from Holy Smoke

Next Sunday, a thriving little Catholic church in Yorkshire mining country which just happens to offer the traditional Latin Mass will be shut by the Bishop of Leeds, Arthur Roche (who, I learn, is a patron of an organisation called STOP - Start Treating Others Positively).

After I posted about this yesterday, parishioners of St John the Evangelist, Allerton Bywater, have contacted me with heartbreaking messages of support for their priest and their church. The more I learn, the more cruel the decision of the diocese appears.
