@Rope - Hi! Thanks for giving me hope in Ohio....So there are pockets of beauty and civility amidst the hurly-burly!
Would that the Novus Ordo be taken as prescribed in the Documents..... and not "Protestantised" into what is here; these Church of England spin-offs would not occur! Just look at the Catholicity of the Extraordinary Form as compared with the Church of England "Eucharist".....

How on earth does Fr Jefferey have such a 'down-at-heel- liturgy' at his Parish when the Cathedral of that Diocese has such marginally good music? Rather more than the Parish he is in!
