“In 1854 John Mason Neale co-founded an order of women dedicated to nursing the sick. Many Anglicans in his day, however, were very suspicious of anything suggestive of Roman Catholicism. Only nine years earlier, John Henry Newman had encouraged Catholic practices in Anglican churches and had ended up becoming a Roman Catholic. This encouraged the suspicion that anyone such as Neale was an agent of the Vatican, assigned to destroy Anglicanism by subverting it from within. Once, Neale was attacked and mauled at a funeral of one of the Sisters. From time to time unruly crowds threatened to stone him or to burn his house.”

THOUGHT I KNEW a lot about the Extraordinary Form—but just watch Fr. James Fryar, FSSP, explaining fantastic information I never realized:


Fr. Fryar is talking about the new FSSP Apostolate in Los Angeles.

I especially liked where he gives concrete examples of how the Extraordinary Form has influenced Ordinary Form parishes.
