Latin Mass

I'm sure everyone has already heard or read about B16's release of a motu proprio extending permission for priests to celebrate the traditional Latin Mass.

I over heard some people talking about the Catholic Church taking a step back in time or reverting back to a time forgotten.


I see it as the Holy Father trying to restore some of the sacredness that's long been neglected.

I can remember being an alter boy at the tail end of this sacredness during Mass. It wasn't too long after that I remember the communion rails coming down. Statues removed and music changes.

I'm kind of looking forward to seeing how this pans out. How far will the bishops of each diocese will allow it.

Over in Orange County ( or the O.C. as some call it) there is a small parish (Mary's by the Sea) that is under internal strife about this issue.

Hopefully this is good news for them.
