Remembering Summorum Pontificum

Remembering Summorum Pontificum July 8, 2017

A fine reflection from Michael Brendan Dougherty.

I’ve attended a couple Latin Masses.  I must admit, there is a beauty there I’ve not experienced in any other form of Christian expression.  The Orthodox church my wife attends has a liturgical richness, but also a foreign feeling that’s tough for me to overcome.

But despite the fact that I only have a passing knowledge of Latin, the experiences were familiar and yet otherworldly.  I think it’s more than just Latin yes or no.  It speaks to how the Church could have continued dealing with the challenges of the modern world, and how it chose to do so.

Anyway, and interesting take.
