…is now available in English and other language on the Vatican website. In case you are interested.
Our pastor had an occasional weekday Mass in Latin and few came, so he stopped. This from a priest who said he became a priest wanting to say the Latin Mass.
Curious about the Mass attendance in general in your parish. Because the TLM thrives elsewhere…..
What are the total number of people and parishes where the TLM is a regular Mass? We are in a small city in the midwest, but near other larger cities. Our parish has lost parishioners but I do not know if that is because of economic conditions, as I know some that have left because of our pastor (I could go on about that but won’t now). I know of no other Church in the area where the TLM is celebrated.
Well I know the Catholic Church is growing in the south and many parishes have the TLM. I am in a TLM parish and we have many protestant converts. In my mens Bible group quite a few are converts to Catholicism and most say their reasons for converting were Truth, Eucharist and liturgy. So I don’t know if the growth is due to the TLM or if the TLM availability is due to the growth of the Church. Doesn’t matter I guess…..either way it’s a good thing.
oh the irony. 😉
And it only took six years! Looks like Vatican technology has finally made it to the 20th century!
It was in Hungarian! If my parents and grandparents were still around they could have read it.
