Fisher More College illegally banned from TLM

Catholic Family News and Rorate Caeli have reported that Bishop Michael Olson of Fort Worth, Texas has illegally banned the Traditional Latin Mass from the College of Saints John Fisher and Thomas More, the only accredited true Catholic college in the United States today that has been offering the True Mass daily.

This is the same school that raised over $300,000 just to stay open for this Spring's semester (for I donated $25 of it). Now, it is quite possible that the college will be shut down by the Bishop. His Excellency, in writing to College president Michael King, stated that "I make these norms out of my pastoral solicitude and care for the students of Fisher-More College as well as for your own soul."

Bull. The student body comes from Traditional Catholic families all over the country. They are accustomed to exclusively attending the Traditional Latin Mass as part of their ways of life.

The student body and the faculty know better. They have the right to recruit a priest-chaplain to offer the Traditional Latin Mass. If need be, they should try to find a canon lawyer for advice, and more importantly, try to have the Bishop reprimanded or removed.
