CHANGES IN THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH

Sir,

I have noted with great interest the letters in your journal with regard to "Changes in the Catholic Church".

As a practising Catholic I do feel in sympathy with certain points raised by these correspondents. The changes in the Mass are regrettable and in some ways it can be difficult to adjust oneself. However, I agree with the viewpoint expressed by F. W. McMorran, regarding exaggeration of some factors.

It is at this point I feel that one should examine various facts. The Mass itself is VALID. The celibacy of the priesthood has been affirmed, and the Sacraments of the Church available in their true essence for all the faithful. May I suggest that for anyone disturbed by "Progressives" in the affairs of the Church, that they will bear these things in mind.

It is in availing oneself of every rite and support that the framework of a Valid Tradition can give, that the earnest spiritual seeker will realise these truths.

Woodford, E.18, 21.6.69
