Archbishop Nichols ‘The Mass gets us beyond the divisions’

leave a comment »

The Tablet has an interview with Archbishop Vincent Nichols, marking six months since his installation as Archbishop of Westminster.

Here’s a taster:

And what of other divisions – between Catholics of a more traditional bent and those who are more progressive – a division made more marked today by disputes over liturgy and by ill-tempered blogs? Do they concern the archbishop?

“Variation and change are not a bad thing,” he says, urging people to be more understanding. “There is something unusual about a Catholic Mass,” he adds, “celebrated within a group of like-minded people. Celebration of the Mass gets us beyond the divisions.”
