ORIGINAL POST: 28 March 2247 GMT:
Michael Voris has a new video about the use of the “Traditional Latin Mass”, the Extraordinary Form. After his travelogue, start paying attention about about 1:45.
He speaks about the young people who are attending the Extraordinary Form. This is obvious to most of us (who aren’t liberals… cough).
Mr. Voris hits the point I am constantly harping about: Catholic identity!
UPDATE 29 March 138 GMT:
There is a follow up video posted today. They’ve been busy!
Voris takes up the theme he dealt with last time: Catholic identity and who is winning the battle over our identity. (Think: young people who are traditional)
He gets into the issues of masculine v. feminized liturgy and the difference between the older (spirit of Vatican II) and newer generations (JP 2 era).
Surprise! Mr. Voris has not cooled off his vocabulary.
If you are not on offense, you are on defense.
UPDATE 1947 GMT:
On the very heels of my posting the update, I read on the blog of my friend Fr. Blake,who cites the first of the videos above:
I don’t always but here I agree with Michael Vorris.
Trad Mass produces vocations, two of the younger men who serve it are off this summer to try their vocations, sadly not with our diocese. Do pray for them.
Trad Mass attracts and produces parents dedicated to passing on the faith to their children, not that we have that many young families here.
Trad Mass inspires young people to deepen their prayer life and to seek to understand the theology and history of the Church.
Trad Mass appeals to men, especially young men.
Trad Mass is evangelical.
While you are deciding, I will add that liberals demand that you deny the evidence of your senses and deny common sense. The older Mass is growing slowly in the numbers of places and priests who say it. It sure seems like a high number of vocations come from these traditional communities.
