Pope Benedict XVI is moving to facilitate a more widespread celebration of the pre-Vatican II Mass in Latin. Only a month after the Pope’s decision to create a new institute to accommodate former members of the schismatic Society of St. Pius X, Vatican officials indicated the Holy Father plans to release a document promoting celebration of the Tridentine Mass. Catholic News Service reported Oct. 11 that Pope Benedict will expand permission to use the Tridentine Mass, the pre-Vatican II rite favored by traditionalist groups, said an informed Vatican source.
Hell yeah. Bring back the Gothic mass that scares the hell out of non-Catholics! Just please ditch the godawful folk-music movement and influence that has killed liturgical music.
