From a reader:
I am trying to raise awareness of the TLM and Summorum Pontificum in my diocese. I am considering developing a pamphlet to pass out at different parishes in order to do this. However, before I reinvent the wheel, I was hoping someone else in an English speaking country has already done this. Could you please make a post that would allow us to share information and find out what is out there in the Catholic world along these lines? It would certainly save me a great deal of time and perhaps others as well.
I think it is commendable to want to raise awareness of the TLM among people who may not know much about it.
I don’t know of any resource already available for this project.
That said, I am sure that people here will now chime in with their suggestions.
But I must add some caveats.
Again, I think it is commendable to want to make the TLM known and loved.
But do exercise prudence and respect for the authority of a parish’s pastor.
Don’t just go around sticking things in churches. Pastors of parishes have the right to determine what is placed in the church.
Also, be prudent in regard to what you distribute outside other churches.
Finally, be sure that the material is not disrespectful of priests, bishops or the Novus Ordo.
“Soyez toujours le plus doux que vous pourrez, et souvenez-vous que l’on prends plus de mouches avec une cuillère de miel qu’avec cent barils de vinaigre… Always be as gentle as you can and remember that one catches more flies with a spoonful of honey than with a hundred barrels of vinegar." – St. Francis de Sales
