From a reader:
My wife and I are recent converts. Our family is increasingly drawn to the beauty and transcendence of the EF. I have approached our parochial vicar and gently inquired about the possibility of having a EF mass. He is young and seems very orthodox but has no interest. He told us that it is understood in ____ that those who want the EF mass need to go to one of the two parishes that offer it. (We’re very lucky to have two parishes within 15 minutes drive that offer the EF mass – one on Sunday and the other on Monday.)
My question is: Should we press on and ask our pastor or attend mass at one of the other parishes?
First, I am very glad that you have places to go.
At the same time I am concerned about the idea that "people should go to ‘those places’". This is a problem that has bugged me for a while: we mustn’t create ghettos.
Summorum Pontificum should be implemented wherever there is desire. That is the point of Summorum Pontificum.
So… I think that priests everywhere should be encouraged to learn and celebrate the older form of Mass everywhere.
So… support the places which have been established. But push to expand.
