You put too much stock in the hope you could live off of the wealthy, comfortable suburbanites who liked coming to Mass once in a while as long as your priests didn't offend them, they didn't talk about sin, and you offered them the opportunity to partake in some dopey liturgical function.
Well, guess what? They aren't coming back. Even Susan has been AWOL. We called the local Jewish and Masonic nursing homes and they haven't received anyone by that name.
Meanwhile, those Latin Mass Catholics that you have marginalized for so many years; they're clamoring to get back in the churches. If Covid-19 was the neutron bomb for the American Church, these survivors are the cockroaches that scurry about the empty church buildings. You have been played for fools. To wit, you facilitated the very thing you feared the most. Die List der Vernunft.
