the Catholic Herald. In particular want to mention those of Josephine Robertson, Ruth Rees and Christopher Monckton. They are soothing halm amidst the modern outpourings on matters of Catholic belief and practice.
I refer now mainly to Christopher Monckton. One little sentence says the ultimate truth:"The priest at the moment of Consecration, acts not merely in the name of Christ but in the Person of Christ, offering himself as the Sacrificial Victim of Calvary"(Catholic Herald, August 14).
In your editorial you say: "We go to Mass and listen to the liturgy because in the midst of our chaotic world we see an anchor, a support which we can hold onto."
Fair enough. But if we also have in mind the fact that we join with Christ in his ongoing offering of himself to the Father for us, surely then the anchor becomes unshakeable, the support rock-like.
