Ahh, Mass in Latin!

It was really nice tonight to hear Archbishop Athanasius Schneider of Kazakhstan say Mass in Latin on EWTN.

May every parish in the world -- and "the world" includes the Archdiocese of Los Angeles -- have the Latin Mass, as Cardinal Castrillon Hoyos has said recently should happen.

May all stubborn bishops start obeying Pope Benedict in this regard and stop putting up roadblocks to Summorum Pontificum, as Archbishop Ranjith has said.

And may every bishop start encouraging the celebration of the Latin Mass by training all seminarians in Latin, as Pope Benedict has requested, and by fostering appreciation for the Latin Mass among seminarians, clergy, religious and laity alike.


It sure is interesting that when Mass in the vernacular came in, many in the congregation went out -- all the way out of the Church. Coincidence? Nope.

Liberal bishops disobey the Pope but expect the laity to obey them. What gives?

Yes, I loved the Mass by Archbishop Schnider on EWTN. I would love it if ALL Masses were in Latin for the Latin rite of the Church.

The TLM is a grace flowing Sacrifice, from which un-nameable graces come from it.

The oxymorons of a liberal are quite amusing at times.

Let us pray for a growth of the Latin Mass.

That being said...The TLM at my parish St. Thérèse is growing, and there are more boys serving at the Mass than the NO.

It's also at 1pm Celebrated by Fr. Robert Bishop CMF where I usually serve.

Dear Joe of St. Therese,

Thank you for the good news about the TLM at your parish! Yes, you're so right about the graces that flow.

God bless!
