Let's foster "The spirit of Summorum Pontificum"

As we know -- oh, do we know -- the liberal Catholics have been running wild for the last 45 years now, and citing "the spirit of Vatican II" for their forays into dissent and disobedience.

So ole Q proposes right now that it is time for the rest of us to run wild with forays into orthodoxy and obedience, and that we do so by citing the spirit of Summorum Pontificum always and everywhere.

Have you banded together with your friends and fellow parishioners yet and asked your pastor for celebration of the Latin Mass? When you do, you could tell him about the concept of the spirit of Summorum Pontificum.

Have you written a letter to the editor of The Tidings or other diocesan newspaper and defended the Holy Father's request for Latin Mass? When you do, you can say you are acting in the spirit of Summorum Pontificum, the spirit of obedience to that document, and it's time for every Catholic to.

What do you think -- shouldn't we cite the spirit of Summorum Pontificum to foster orthodoxy and obedience in our Church?

Agreed. Thanks for the reminder to formally request a Tridentine service. I've done so informally, but need to follow up with the letter route.

You are dreaming. In my diocese the "Spirit of Vatican II" folks are firmly in control, and they won't be leaving soon.

Dear Consanescerion,

You're welcome, and thank you for commenting.

Are you going to get some fellow parishioners to sign your letter with you? If we do that, it might make it harder for pastors to not follow through with our requests.

Dear Anonymous 5:44 a.m.,

The same sort of folks are firmly entrenched in the Archdiocese here, too. I'm just saying we need to show the colors and never stop stating our case to them.

And if we do that publicly, we will start to educate and win over more and more of the faithful.

By writing letters to diocesan newspapers, some of which will publish our letters, we reach the faithful directly without chancery liberals being able to ignore or filter our message.

Do you think it would work in your neighboring diocese, where both a NO Mass in Vietnamese and the Extraordinary Mass has been rescinded in a parish where previously the old Latin Mass had been packing 'em in?
