  •  Good, old Benedict (8+ / 0-)

    decreed that each diocese should offer the Tridentine Mass for those who were disaffected by Vatican II.  Yesterday's crowd had three older couples.  The rest were young families with LOTS of kids, the kind of families that were common when I was growing up.  Only one family is from our diocese.  The others come from the adjoining state which does not offer it, at least not nearby.

    I didn't find the old Mass as mysterious as some, possibly because I was involved in playing the organ for it from the age of ten.  It doesn't draw me at all, though I do like to listen to a good schola sing chant.  (This crowd doesn't have a good schola, just two guys who sing the first Sunday of the month.)
