George Neumayr at CWR writes up this head-scratcher of a quote:
Archbishop Allen Vigneron of Detroit will investigate a priest who said mass this past weekend at a celebration of dissent called the American Catholic Council, reports The Detroit Free Press. Archbishop Vigneron had warned clergy not to participate in the event.
The priest in question, Fr. Bob Wurm, 78, doesn’t sound very concerned and gives a novel reason to the paper for his claimed immunity from punishment: “I don’t see that happening,” Wurm said. “I’m older than he (Vigneron) is.”
Ummmm…. I hate to have to point this out, but Pope Benedict is 84, and the Almighty Triune God is, well, quite a bit older than that.
Let’s just count this as more good proof that one should never play the seniority game with Tradition.
