Kevin Mayhew, chairman of Kevin Mayhew Publishers in England, has an interesting letter to the editor in the January 18 edition of The Tablet. He writes:
Early on, I made a judgment that it [the Missal text] was so poor it would not last and that I would not publish any part of it, although, like all publishers, we were asked to bid for the publishing rights.
And he adds this:
It is urgent to get rid of the new text both because of its ugliness and non-acceptance and for the damage it has done to relationships with other Churches that were not even advised of the changes in advance.
Kevin Mayhew’s integrity, especially if it cost him in the pocketbook, is noteworthy.
