A slight niggle

And it's a small one, but I really hope that article 15 isn't used as a loophole to ghettoise the more Traditionally minded. I would hate to think that there would, for example, only be one traddie hot zone in an entire Diocese to which everyone attached to the Old Form would be expected to go to, effectively keeping us out of our own parishes. It would inevitably limit the numbers of people who might like to attend, again because of the distance, and possibly the time of day. It would limit exposure of the EF, and is incredibly divisive in the very 'them and us' way that's so off putting and unhelpful - well, I think it is. We're all Catholics, as the new Instruction points out so clearly.

Just a thought.
