The Mass that will not die.

On Sunday night Rocky and I attended a lecture on the Tridentine Mass. It was glorious. We all met in the church (the Blessed Sacrament had been removed and is every time a lecture takes place in the church) and Fr. proceeded to walk us all through the Tridentine Mass. It was crowded and you could've heard a pin drop. Every eye was on Fr. as he spoke and many of us were taking notes. The parish has bought a bunch of copies of the Ecclesia Dei mini missal for us. There were handouts and a list of books to read on the Tridentine.
I was so excited to see so many young people there. If anybody tells you that the desire for the Tridentine is just nostalgia tell them to get a clue. Most of the people in church that night were, like me, born after Vatican II and have never known anything but the Novus Ordo.

Fr. was so happy. You could see that he was thrilled to be talking about this subject and he's chomping at the bit to celebrate the Tridentine.

Wow! This is wonderful! I haven't heard of anyone near us even thinking about the TLM. *sigh*

God Bless!

Sorry Pandabean. It's just going to take a little longer in some dioceses than others. At least your bishop wasn't one of two American bishops who to preview the MP and told reporters afterwards, there's no interest for it (the TLM) in New England...

Sheesh...

They can't keep the Tridentine down. One of these days it will get to your diocese.
