The Southern Cross, as the sole national Catholic newspaper in South Africa, is for many Catholics in South Africa the sole source of Catholic news. I have made it my objective to draw attention to articles regarding the new Roman Missal, from other Catholic media sources throughout the world, in order to counter the largely negative reports contained in The Southern Cross. I came across this rather amusing column by Louie Verrecchio titled “Media attacks on new Roman Missal amusing”. It contains a reference to Fr. Larry Kaufmann, a South African Catholic priest, who has been quite critical of the new Roman Missal.
