From a reader:
I must drive 1.5 hours minimum (in good driving conditions) to attend an EF mass. There is only the […] offering it before noon. I have 7, soon to be 8 children. There are easily 12 parishes within 1/2 hour drive. My own pastor refuses to offer latin mass in either form. He isn’t at all prepared and he would likely get lynched. I and others in the area have written to Archbishop […] requesting easier access. The clergy in the area have no interest and some have contempt for anything latin. Do I have reason to write to Ecclesia Dei or am I being unreasonable? How would I go about it?
You always have the right to write directly to the the competent office of the Holy See at any time.
That said, it is best to get involved locally before writing to the Holy See.
What you describe is not an easily solved situation. If there is no priest who is capable of using the 1962MR, what can be done? You can’t have that Mass without a priest who know how to do it.
I suggest that you keep working on your local Archbishop, saving copies of all your correspondence.
In the meantime, if there is a priest within a reasonable distance, perhaps you and others could arrange to bring the priest to you for a private Mass from time to time at a local parish where the pastor is disposed at least to help you that way. Be ready to give a donation to both the parish and the priest.
Keep a chronicle of everything that happens and urge others with your interest to do so as well. Things written on paper remain, and they can be useful in future correspondence in case you need to write to the Holy See.
But the key here is a) find a priest willing to say that Mass and b) find a local priest willing to host it, it not do it himself.
You may need to apply some real diplomacy.
In the meantime, keep going to Mass on days of obligation, even if you must go to the Novus Ordo.
