""...[The Latin Mass] remains sacred and great for us too..."

In today's (September 27) edition of the ZENIT daily e-news, Elizabeth Lev provides one of the very greatest quotes from Pope Benedict XVI in his letter that accompanied his motu proprio "Summorum Pontificum":

"What earlier generations held as sacred, remains sacred and great for us too, and it cannot be all of a sudden entirely forbidden or even considered harmful."

Yet our U.S. bishops basically DID "entirely forbid" the Latin Mass, and most of them, and many U.S. priests, too, DID "consider [it] harmful."

So when are they going to apologize for stealing the Latin Mass from us for 40 years, and when and how are they going to make restitution for that theft?

They could START by repenting of their BIAS against the Latin Mass, and by cooperating with the Pope and making the Latin Mass widely available to us.

So, other than the already existing "Indult" Masses, how many more "Tridentine" Masses are there now in the Archdiocese of Los Angeles?

The Bishop of Monterey has chosen to allow the use of the extraordinary form of the Mass (Tridentine) but only in one location. Those interested in the old rite, must go to the southern tip of the Diocese. This will require some parishioners to travel nearly 300 miles round trip to attend a traditional Mass.

The Bishop of Monterey is in defiance of Pope Benedict's Moto Propio!

Dear Cuthbert,

That is a good question, and I do not know the answer. Maybe one or more of our visitors to this blog has an idea about the number.
