I am glad they have remembered my good friend Msgr Richard Soseman.
Also, I am sure we are all interested in Dante even if we are not terribly interested in what Francis (rather, Francis’ ghost writer) think’s about Dante.
There is a very interesting article about the post-Novus Ordo (seemingly unnecessary) “indults” for the Vetus Ordo.
ALSO…. be sure to taken in Joseph Shaw’s (Chairman of the LMS) piece at One Peter Five which is a buttal to Massimo’s “Beans” Faggioli utterly vicious suggestion that people who desire traditional sacred worship are racists. Peter goes into the provenance of the Vetus Ordo in a dense, informative essay. HERE
What Beans told a writer for a newspaper in Illinois in a dreadfully slimey piece:
While many attending Latin Masses grew up Catholic, others are converts to Catholicism, mainly from conservative Protestant denominations, professor Faggioli said.
“It’s as if they are saying, ‘If I’m going to be Catholic, let’s go all of the way,'” he said. “They have a view of the Catholic church that tends to be closer to the 1950s version of Catholicism. They have a problem dealing with modernity. What took place after the 1960s and ’70s in this country were massive changes: contraception, abortion, LGBT issues. Latin is a statement of what they think of the Catholic Church now,” he said.
“It’s not an accident that all of these Catholics at the old Mass are white, because one of the things that happened after Vatican II was an ‘inculturation’ of the liturgy,” Faggioli noted, referring to music and art from various ethnic and racial groups that have been incorporated into church services to better reach the communities they serve.
“The Latin Mass is white and European by its definition, because it’s a product of the Catholic Church of the 16th century. So, this is creating serious problems because it is never limited to the liturgy only, but it is always the first step to saying Vatican II was a disaster,” he said.
Although Sacred Heart is in the middle of a predominantly African American neighborhood, on a recent Sunday, no Black faces were seen in the sanctuary.
What a fraud.
