Just Ignore them

they'll be moving on soon.

Damien Thompson provides the obvious answer to the [edit] persons running the "English" "Catholic" "Church" in this country: ignore them.

Today is the Feast of the Ascension in the old Catholic calendar. Earlier this week I said that the Bishops of England and Wales had scored a cheap point against traditionalists by forcing them to mark it this Sunday, the new date they imposed on Catholics last year (without consultation).

But what’s this? Sung Masses celebrating the Ascension at the London, Oxford and Birmingham Oratories TODAY, not Sunday – indeed, Extraordinary Form Masses all over the country. It looks as if traditionalists know how to score points, too.

On another blog, I referred to the English/Welsh ecclesiats as unusually petty pettifoggers.
