We won't be issuing a lot of warnings this time around; so We are advising everyone to err on the side of caution when posting.
Special vigilance may be required when you are tempted to reply to a post that has particularly exercised your spleen.
Forum moderation, or lack thereof, is Our concern (and the concern of the forum camerlengo when We are unavailable). We reserve the right to lock and delete threads as may be deemed necessary for the good of the forum. Troublesome forum members are liable to the ban for a period of time to be determined by Ourselves and the camerlengo.
For the benefit of those who may be new to the York Forum: salvete omnes, welcome. Please note that the York Forum was created as a haven for traditional Roman Catholics, Anglican Use Roman Catholics, Anglican Catholics and for members of the Continuing Anglican jurisdictions. That being the case, this is not a very welcoming place for Anglo-Protestants, Affirming Catholics, members of ECUSA, or for anyone who generally considers himself a progressive religionist. Be assured that this is by design.
The focus here is the liturgical patrimony of the Ecclesia Anglicana, and the binding thread is a shared Catholic Faith and Tradition. Therefore, priestesses & bishopesses, same-sex marriages, clown masses, Haugen-Haas mass settings and other such farcical nonsense will receive only the sharpest commentary here. If you are a devotee of such things, then you meant to go to the Modern Liturgy forums and you wandered in here by mistake. We thank you for stopping by. Kindly help yourself to some inspirational refrigerator magnets and John Michael Talbot CDs from the Gift Shop on the way out (we're trying to get rid of them).
