The Italian daily La Repubblica is reporting that since summorum Pontificum there has been growth in requests for the TLM.
Apparently Masses are springing up everywhere, despite the fact that last April the bishops of Tuscany had sent a protest, with a certain approval of the conference, over the forthcoming Motu Proprio. You will recall that one of the greater denouncer of the Motu Proprio was the Archbishop of Pisa. Furthermore, it is not older people who are going to the new old Mass, but young people.
In one place, for example, the 55 year old parish priest said "No" while the 34 year old assistant backed the group of people who want the TLM. Even though this group has been pushing since August, the pastor says No. The people? "We’re not asking for much… just one out of the five Masses celebrated between the two churches." To be fair, the parish priest is saying, "My No isn’t a categorical No. I only said that preparation is needed, to understand what the old rite consists of. … I have to learn it. And it isn’t exactly easy, saying this Mass of Pius V".
So, we can see the pattern repeating itself all over the world. The older priest is reluctant, doesn’t know the older Mass, drags his feet. The younger priest is more open, perhaps more willing to learn. The result is a delay.
Meanwhile, resources are being distributed to help priests learn the older Mass and there are places priests can go to study the extraordinary use.
Brick by brick.
