The Tidings newspaper of the Diocese of Los Angeles has an article on the Motu Proprio called "The Tridentine Mass: The views of two priests."
At first I figured this would have the typical pro and con viewpoints. The two priests are both columnist of the USCCB’s Catholic News Service
and both viewpoints are pretty much unhappy with the permission and quite negative.
It seems like only yesterday that I was celebrating Mass in Latin with my back to the people.
Hardly the "full and active participation" that Vatican II called for.
Apart from the schismatic followers of Archbishop Marcel Lefebvre and a few young people who are nostalgic for a church they never knew, almost nobody is pressing for it.
If only we could tax Tridentine Rite related clich� we could put an end to the income tax.
The first viewpoint basically says only elderly people who don’t like shaking hands, don’t like three readings, and want a 45 minute Mass go to the indult Mass at a neighboring parish. Now I only have the data for my own parish and its indult Mass, but it is well attended and the average age certainly does not skew elderly. I guess there must be more nostalgia in the water here.
