From a priest …
All priests in many countries are now just doing private masses. How about saying them in ef? Thats my plan. [kudos!]
Same time every day in the parish church.
Can’t get more obviously private than a low mass where holy communion is not distributed to faithful.
If people do turn up then they get more used to the old mass. Over 3 or 4 months they good even grow to appreciate it a little.
This whole time is a great opportunity for priests to teach themselves the old mass and start saying it every day.
In a way, Father, I would have thought it was obvious to priests who are truly, or who say they are, interested in the Traditional Roman Rite.
But, maybe it has to be said.
Fathers. If you are saying private Masses… NOW is the time to apply the Extraordinary Form to great effect.
This could be the time to LEARN it.
This could be the time to deepen your comfort and knowledge of it.
Fathers! Say Mass privately, by all means. And use the Traditional Roman Missal!
What an unparalleled opportunity to do much on a broad spiritual plane.
