This is fabulous news but I just have to wonder why all the secrecy and hem-hawing about the traditional Mass? Can't our pope just come out and say it? I was a young girl when I experienced the Vatican II changes. Even as a child I noticed the irreverence creep into the Masses and bit by bit watched as the liturgy was watered down and many times changed by the ad-libs of the priest. I pray that the traditonal Mass in Latin makes a comeback. I read once that Satan detests Latin. The reason being that Latin is a dead language and cannot be manipulated as the English language can. We need the Latin Mass desperately in our pagan times. Hope the rumors are true!
I can only hope the same for the United States.Here in NY the TLM is receiving a flat revival, not due to non-interest but to the fact that people both connected and disconnected to Mass do not know enough or have been educated by parish priests as to our options...WHat we need is a strong mandate, firm, as this for people to really obtain the option to drift toward the TLM freely..Every parish must have it as an option...M....
Is it really plausible for each parish to have the extraordinary form of the roman rite an option? Wouldn't it be better to set up TLM communities in each diocese and then branch out as the demand increases?
