For years I have said that if bishops want to control the TLM in their dioceses, the best way to do it would be to get involved.
These are Catholics who would go to the wall, if necessary. When bishops get involved with them, irenically, pastorally, they will go to the wall for the bishop and for his projects.
From One Peter Five:
Hundreds Flock to Bishop’s Latin Mass
For the fifth year in a row, Catholic tradition made a quiet but profound appearance in an unsuspecting setting: before dawn, early on a Saturday morning on the campus of a public university.
However, for the first year, it was led by a successor of the apostles.
As was previously posted here on OnePeterFive, before dawn on December 11th, Bishop Conley, ordinary of Lincoln, Nebraska offered a Pontifical Solemn Rorate Mass at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln’s Newman Center.
Many woke early that Saturday morning to worship in so sublime a way — totaling four hundred faithful, many of whom were students.
Starting at 6:30 AM the bishop, donned in his newly-gifted cappa magna, processed to the altar — only lit by the dozens of candles illuminating the sanctuary — to the sounds of seminarians from Our Lady of Guadalupe Seminary chanting a polyphonic setting of the Litany of Loreto.
Keep making the cappa magna, friends. One day they will be used again.
