Now Doctor Marshall is what many would call an approved speaker and that may put many people off because neo-conservatives or normalists tend to down play real problems. However, Dr. Marshall has always approached these situations with prudence but does not hold himself out as naive with regards the workings of the synod. His writings tend to be more traditional in their construction and he has made it known that his family attends the FSSP Parish.
The first video is a calming video and many will say that he is down playing real issues, but he has his reasons and I think them genuine and obvious.
Later, on his facebook page he makes it clear that we should not be naive about the goings on of the synod, pretending that everything is ok.
In the past Dr. Marshall has wrote about the new rite of the liturgy and the various differences with the ancient rite. One of the things he has spoken on was the lectionary and how the three year cycle of readings was supposed to introduce greater scriptural competancy into the laity. Today he took an interesting look at this once again but this time identified some real problems with what was put in the cycle and what was left out (distinctly different from the ancient rite)
