Transcripción

Dear Pope Francis, dear Bishops!
As young Catholics who go to the Traditional Latin Mass, we often encounter a lack of understanding in the older generations.
We do not question the validity of the new liturgy or disdain its celebration.
We love the Traditional Mass not because we are old and grumpy.
We love it not because we are old-fashioned.
We love it not because we are separatist.
We love the Traditional Latin Mass for its devotion and trustful fear of God.
We love its orientation of priest and faithful together in the same direction, towards God and Christ.
We love it, because it is the same all over the world, it is universal, catholic in the original sense of the word.
We love it, because its transcendence gives us a peace and hope the world cannot give.
We do not “widen the gaps” or “reinforce the divergences”.
We do not “encourage disagreements that injure the Church”.
We do not “block her path” or “expose her to the peril of division”.
We simply aim at a Christian life in faith, hope, and love for God and our neighbour.
We try to follow the call to holiness and we draw our strength from the Latin Mass.
Dear Holy Father, dear Bishops, we are not just a few deplorably stubborn adherents of an outdated rite.
As loyal Roman Catholics, we are YOUR multitudinous and lively youth.
We are YOUR sheep.
We are YOUR faithful.
We pray for you every day.
Please do not let us down.
Can we count on you?
Can we count on you?
Can we count on you?
Can we count on you?
Can we count on you?
