WDTPRS in the news: USA TODAY

Apparently WDTPRS was in the news yesterday.  I got a message saying that we were in USA Today.  Since I was travelling, I didn’t see anything about this.  

Does anyone have any more information or links?  

It would be nice to see what happened.

    Actually, Fr. Z is mentioned in the sidebar of the article:

    Catholic
    John Zuhlsdorf
    Blogger: Zuhlsdorf, 48, a columnist for The Wanderer and former moderator for the Catholic Online Forum.
    Blog: wdtprs.com/blog (acronym for “What does the prayer really say?”); features audio and podcasts to help priests and laypeople learn Latin prayers.
    Theme: Traditionalist Catholic culture; “slavish” devotion to translating the Tridentine (Latin) Mass so people will “come to know and love the content more deeply. The content of our prayer is the person of Jesus.”
    Hot topic: Pope Benedict XVI’s “monumental” decision to make this 1962 Mass more widely accessible, “although some sectors of the church resist it mightily.”
    Tone: Upbeat outreach to “ordinary people trying to live their faith.”

    In Christ,

    Mark

    Father, you are mentioned in a column on the left side of the screen, in a list of notable faith blogs. Here’s what they said:

  3. The problem is I am not the “former” Moderator of the COL Forum. I am the Moderator.

    Also, I have not been into “slavish” devotion to translations of the “Tridentine” Mass.

    For the last 7 years my columns have been focused on the Novus Ordo!

    Can’t people get things right?

    However, I am glad to know what happened.

    48 years old???? Wow! Father, I thought you were in your early to mid 30s :-) Youthful appearance comes from living the “good life”.

  5. Jason in San Antonio says:

    How could you be in the USA Today if you are in Rome?

  6. mike c says:

    Don: there is another explanation, he’s using outdated photos :-)

    Fr. Z – This is great stuff from SRC colloquium. When & where may we read your full analysis. Abp. Ranjith seems to be just the tonic that SRC needed. Cdl. Arinze exploded a bomb!

  7. Jason: Everyone’s a comedian! o{];¬)

  8. mike c: No, that photo is pretty much what I look like, except when I have jet lag.

    Well, Father, ya’know, don’tcha, if it’s Latin, it’s the old Mass, and if it’s the new Mass, then it’s just the old translated into something people understand. Hey, Latin is Latin, isn’t it, why split hairs.

    I suspect there are plenty of Catholics whose Mass understanding is no deeper than this, and who aren’t interested in hearing any more about it.

  10. Jonathan Bennett says:

    Father, arent you a little old to be celebrating the Tridentine Mass? Your at the age when you should be hanging onto your Marty Haugen hymns and guitar Masses for dear life and insisting that Latin is too complicated for anyone to learn!

    They seem to have completely missed the fact that Father is a priest! Still fun to see him mentioned, though.
