What one pastor is doing for the Tridentine Mass

A young pro-life friend who took a job in another state has written me this:

"Thought you might find this interesting... Our pastor announced this weekend that he will offer the traditional Latin Mass (aka the"extraordinary form" of the Roman Rite) at our parish... on the Feast of the Exaltation of the Holy Cross (Sept. 14th), which is also the date that the Holy Father's motu proprio officially goes into effect.

"If enough parishioners are interested, he will offer this Mass regularly, although as far as I know, our ordinary Sunday Mass schedule (Novus Ordo) will not change. Our pastor (who has never offered Mass this way before) is preparing to celebrate it for the first time, our own altar boys are being trained to serve at the altar, and our Gregorian choir is preparing for it as well.

"Also, our parish is offering a set of workshops to acquaint parishioners with this form of the Mass. Interesting times!..."

Interesting, albeit anonymous, reference to a possible Cardinal Roger Mahoney reaction to the Motu Proprio on the Rorate Caeli blog:

"A friend had dinner last week with Roger Cardinal Mahoney. The Cardinal seemed very angry at the MP and stated that he did not care what Benedict said and that no matter how many people wrote letters right and left he was not going to change anything in the liturgy of LA.
