That's what I understand by scholarliness. Alas, it does not necessarily
equate to success :=(

..and the Mozarabic rite which was preserved in Toledo, I believe. These
were isolated rites whose ancientness allowed their continuance. I believe
they are still practiced. But they were/are confined to a small area (the
Mozarbic IIRC to certain chapels in Toledo cathedral) and well within the
Catholic heartland so there'd be no likelihood of confusion during the
religious turmoil of northern Europe.

I know - I've attended a Ukrainian rite Mass.

Very foolish of the local hierarchy, I think; especially as even in the
western (or Latin) married men, who were ministers in Lutheran & Anglican
churches, are occasionally allowed to train for holy orders and are
ordained as priests.
I would dearly long to see a full raprochement between the Eastern &
Meantime, yes there is certainly good precedent for the Cambrian Church to
retain its own rites & stay in communion with Rome but I feel some unusual
circumstance would make it a more likely scenario.

After two rather tedious exchanges with Bruce Gilson on AUXLANG. He seem
to want to take every thing I said as a personal attack on him & kept
whinging that I deliberately misrepresented every thing he said.
Indeed the top line is also due the same exchanges. He made petty remarks
about my spelling, although there typos enough in his letters [I did not
respond by telling him so - it's too petty]. And he entirely missed what I
& some others considered an obvious joke, said I ought to add smileys or
_say_ that humor wasn't marked, and has several times since said in replies
to others how bad I was to treat him so.
If you missed the exchanges, then be thankful.

Interesting - must ponder on it.
