Austrian priest Gerhard Maria Wagner will not attend Linz Bishop Ludwig Schwarz’ special Mass of reconciliation this Sunday. Bishop Schwarz will say Mass Sunday under the slogan “Look at Christ – For a Good Future in Our Diocese.”

Fr. Wagner said the reason was the use of a modern monstrance during a Corpus Christi procession in Linz on June 11, which he called “a provocation.” Bishop Schwarz has also criticised the unauthorised use of the barbecue-tong-like-monstrance as not in keeping with traditional observances of the feast of Corpus Christi…

Reports are that the Pope is losing patience with the Diocese of Linz…

I guess so.
