Dear Father Shaun,
You were not at Mass this morning; and a guest priest presided. But as the leader of our parish, I must address this to you. I hope you will share it with other members of the staff, even though what I am about to say may not be well-received. I am writing you with a grievance about today's Mass, and what I say, though it will be unavoidably pointed, is offered in the spirit of Christian fellowship and with personal rancor for no one.
