From a reader:
I’m happy to pass along to you something in the brick-by-brick category. The administration of the International Theological Institute, an ecclesiastical theological faculty in Austria, invited a priest of the congregation Servi Jesu et Mariae to offer a solemn high Mass according to the 1962 Missal on Easter Thursday. The Mass was beautifully celebrated and well attended (considering the small size of the institute). The liturgical life of the little community here at the I.T.I. is really a unique blessing. There are four priests of Byzantine rite here who offer the holy sacrifice daily in the beautiful liturgies of the East. The daily celebration in the ordinary form of the Roman rite is done according to the black and the red, and once weekly in Latin with Gregorian chant. And as of this past Fall, a once weekly low Mass in the extraordinary form has been added thanks to the good will and hard work of a young priest here who undertook to learn how to say it without any previous experience. I have even been learning right along with him, how to serve the low Masses – a very rewarding experience for me!
