More Support for the Tridentine Mass

I am aware of certain bloggers who will do anything to discredit the yearning for the Tridentine Mass, but there is a groundswell of support that won't be ignored by this particular blogger. Here in the Archdiocese of Galveston-Houston we have an active and growing congregation at Annunciation Church. In the past the previous bishop did all he could to extinguish this ancient rite of the Church. People from as far away as College Station drive to the only Mass in the entire archdiocese of 1 million plus Catholics. Nationally I've seen the rumblings and yearnings for of the Tridentine Mass with the bursting seminary over at the Diocese of Lincoln of the Fraternal Society of St. Peter to the increased presence of Christ the King and the obstinate SSPX. A younger generation of parishioners born after the hijacked reforms of Vatican II have contributed to the resurgence of this very solemn and reverent Mass. To read more click here.

In the Catholic blogsphere? I am sad to hear this, any examples? If you want to keep it on the DL, feel free to let me know as a comment on my blog then delete it right away and I'll see it in my Email.

By the way I posted a resposne comment to your comment regarding that Priest in my post being in step with the Bishop.

It just occured to me that it may not specifically be a good thing if the tridentine mass comes back. I imagine the more conservatice catholics would attend the tridentine mass and the more liberal ones would attend the novus. The tridentine will, of course most likely, remain as it has for a very long time, the novus..., however, will only increasingly get more liberal. An image in my mind draws from the pictures floating around of the clown mass the episcopalians do sometimes. It will be sad.

However, I will be happy at the tridentine. :)

I see what you are saying, but this may be a good thing as the more 'liberal' priests will see a decrease in attendance, but the more 'Catholic' priests will be able to retain their own congregations.

I believe the Tridentine Mass will affect the less 'Catholic' (ie, liberal) priests celebrating their version of the Novus Ordo as those that celebrate the correct version of the Novus Ordo won't see any changes in their congregations.

Actually some of us would really prefer a _great_ Novus Ordo. I admit that the Tridentine is interesting, but I really like to participate in the Mass and Tridentine really didn't allow for that (perhaps with more training?) I saw an excellent Novus Ordo on EWTN one day and have yet to find it since. It was what I usually saw at Sunday Mass, except that our participation was in Latin (Our Father, Gloria, etc.) I thought it was way cool.

I'm 100% pro-Tridentine :)
