Awaiting His Holiness' Motu Proprio On The More-Generous Use Of The Tridentine Latin Mass

It's Coming:

Not at the Speed Of Light, as His Holiness is Praying, Writing & Deliberating, as these things do take time;

There are Priests who've passed their 40th Anniversaery, who do go back to the mandatory study of Latin, so they're ready;

Much of the current crop were NOT mandated to study Latin;

Latin IS The Official Language Of The Church;

TL Masses are Nicely-Attended in The RC Archdiocese of NY & the RC Diocese Of Brooklyn;

I hope to see one in a nearby Parish one of these days;

I prefer my Priests, Facing The East Toward God, rather than facing us;

& NONE of That AWFUL Music is played;

& You wonder WHY I have Gregorian Chant on My Baseball Blog;

It signifies that the Writer Is Catholic & will keep it THAT WAY;

You Wonder Why I Sometimes Get Teary-Eyed, when I Go To This Page;

I used to sing this Hymn, in Latin, at Mass, when I was 8, 9, 10 & 11;

Pax Vobiscum;

Michael

Yep, Latin IS still the language of the Church, and the language of the liturgy, per Vatican II, Sacrosanctum Concilium.

Furthermore, NONE of the legitimate rites of the Church were to have been suppressed; all were to have been preserved and fostered, per Vatican II, same document.

Further-furthermore, in his latest apostolic exhortation, didn't the Holy Father also state in strong terms (that the translators vainly tried to water down) that seminarians need to be schooled in Latin?

It's about time we started hewing to the actual teachings of Vatican II, instead of the phony-baloney, plastic-banana, good-time-rock 'n' roller "spirit of Vatican II."

Way to go Michael!

Up here in New England, where Cardinal O'Malley himself alleges that interest in the Traditional Mass is low (NOT TRUE), many of us who awoke at 0600 to read the motu proprio are big-time Red Sox fans.

As of this typing, "Latin Mass" is a "hot search" on boston.com; clicking it linked to your blog!

I went to Fenway on Tuesday (great seats, had lots of fun) with a fellow Latin Mass person; I sent a picture of this fan hoisting a brew to other Latin Mass people with the caption, "Here's to the MP."

Bye for now. Off to thank God at the "ordinary form."

Pax Vobis, Fisk Fan Since '72:

I write a Red Sox Blog here in Queens, here in NYC;

A # of people at the TLM, here, are fans of The Red Sox, & I can tell from the # of Red B Caps on the Subways in Brooklyn & in Lower Manhattan;

& I love Gregorian Chant. Anti-NY Yankees Chant, is done in Gregorian Style, in Latin;

Sounds like His Eminence, Might want to re-think his comments, after being made to look down from the Top of The Green Monster;

& to think that this blog was referred from Boston.com, in regards to the TL Mass:

For The Latin Mass in The RC Archdiocese of Boston, it's in Newton-Upper Highlands, a trip on the MBTA Green D Line to Newton:

Why is that TL Mass in the Suburbs like that?

& LA is a disgrace as there's no regular, weekly Latin Mass.

This is what the "Motu Proprio" is about:
