Tragic But True

We have long known that the institution is of, by, and for the clergy and that the laity are just numbers with pocketbooks and don't count, but in case anyone doubted this view, here is  conviction out of the institution's own mouth (and don't think non-Catholic religious institutions are exempt: these attitudes apply across the board). With thanks to Mike Ford for sending this item.

Roman Catholic guidelines to using the Liturgy of the Hours state: 'Clergy and religious have a canonical obligation to pray it as official representatives of the Church. Increasingly, the laity are also praying it, though they do not do so in the name of the Church.'
