US Archbishop Wants ALL His Seminarians to Learn the Traditional Latin Mass

The Benedict XVI Institute published on August 10 an interesting online discussion with priests and laypeople who promote the Traditional Latin Mass in the United States. The most prominent guest was San Francisco Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone

US Archbishop Cordileone Defends Latin

Archbishop Cordileone stressed that the Church abolished Latin and introduced the vernacular exactly at the wrong time. Now, more than ever, we need a universal language of the Church because of migration and tourism, he explained. Cordileone believes that Latin could be re-introduced. Quote: “What was universal before, could be universal now.” And, “We need to open that door.” The archbishop revealed that he wants his seminarians to learn the Traditional Latin Mass as part of their priestly formation, primarily for their liturgical education. For Cordileone the experience of the Traditional Latin Mass inculcates the sense of reverence, of the sacred and respect of Tradition.

Black Catholic ministries Organizes Mass

The co-host was Alex Begin, Harvard’s youngest graduate in 1982 and founder of a software company. He converted through the Latin Mass. His apostolate is now to train priests and bishops in how to celebrate the Old Liturgy. He informed about an August 28 Old Rite Mass in the three-level Saint Aloysius Church in downtown Detroit that has not been used for 50 years. The Mass will be sponsored by the office for black Catholic ministries of Detroit Archdiocese. It is celebrated by Father John McKenzie, a black American priest and former monk of Norcia, Italy, who was ordained a year ago for Detroit. McKenzie believes the Traditional Mass has a key role to play now, as it has historically, in uniting Catholics of all races.

Downtown Detroit Old Rite Mass Success

Alex Begin told the audience about a Friday Night Traditional Latin Mass that was instituted in downtown Detroit’s Old Saint Mary’s. Because the church has a huge pipe organ, the organisers decided to take an add out on the Classical Musica radio station in town promoting the music during this mass. The result: 200 to 250 people attending this Mass on a Friday night. Often, they are not Latin Mass people. The Mass has created a great opportunity for evangelisation.

Heaven on Earth

Father Jeremiah Payne, the parish-priest of St Joseph’s in Palm Bay, Florida, spoke about a 17-year-old girl whom he didn’t know and who participated in a Latin Mass because she had missed the previous English Mass. Her comment, “Father, I don’t know what this was, but if heaven could be on earth I, at least, know that was it.”

"Father, I don't know what this was, but if heaven could be on earth, I at least know that was it"... such an insightful response from a 17-year-old girl who, it seems, experienced The Latin Mass for the first time.

Excellent news!

All well and good. But what about Cordileone's many sodomy-affirming priests and parishes. Does he hope that the biological solution will remove the 50% of his priests who are sodomites, without a fight?
Don Reto Nay
He knows that he will lose that fight, because the general behind him, will betray him.

I fully support such effort!
