“The Latin Mass of years gone by is becoming more popular again”

I think we have to pretty much give up on correct terminology now.  It seems that the bifurcation is nearly complete.  Latin has been isolated from the Novus Ordo, partly because those on the traditional side of thing perpetually called the … Continue reading

“Dear Traditionalists,…” Wherein Fr. Z repeats a rant.

Two years ago today I posted this. I haven’t changed my mind one little bit. Not an iota. I had this from a reader. He said he was not advocating these things. However, liberals will advocate them. I’ve got some … Continue reading
