A woman ascends the pulpit. She says her name, and welcomes everybody. I do not want to know her name, and I am trying to pray. She announces the names of the readers, the Eucharistic ministers, and the altar servers. She announces the name of the priest. At one church, I am urged to get up (if I can; they make allowances for people with disabilities) and greet the people around me by name. I do not want to do this. I find it false. I do not remember the names of strangers, and I do not like to give my name out to strangers, either. It’s an act of aggressive etiquette, parading as bonhomie. I do not go to church for bonhomie. For that, if I ever wanted it, I would go to a bar and order gin and tonic.

The Cardinal cuttingly suggested the NOM was suited to women and children, although they deserve better.

The Cardinal did support the artist's petition which resulted in the so called 'Agatha Christie indult, which permitted diocesan TLM, provided the local ordinary gave permission.

One magnificent church I was at recently, a sort of sparse interpretation of neo classical architecture built in the '60s. Yet it was spoiled by a very effete old priest who couldn't stop talking, and a similarly effete old man as cantor, who couldn't sing, leaving aside the awfulness of the songs.

TLM only for a decade, as far as possible, the Mass of Ages is immeasurably superior.

The point of the New Church is to entertain you! See?
