Default Bishops stonewalling Latin Mass

http://www.catholicnews.com/data/sto...ns/0804776.htm

Many bishops are resisting the Pope's will to have the Latin Mass available in all dioceses. I think that this is symptomatic of a larger problem, that many bishops have gone astray in their hearts from the fullness of faith and obedience.

Ron, as a catholic who attends a latin mass here in Brisbane,all I can say is I'm not surprised at the resistance of some Bishops,but I remain disappointed.

Default Resistance in the Seminaries, too.

The problem exists in many US seminaries as well. There are no practicums taught on the 1962 Missal and any suggestion of such a practicum usually leads to a seminarian being called "rigid" and put on the radar.

Default Latin Mass

Here is a quote about the Latin Mass

"The Holy Mass is a prayer itself, even the highest prayer that exists. It is the Sacrifice, dedicated by our Redeemer at the Cross, and repeated every day on the altar. If you wish to hear Mass as it should be heard, you must follow with eye, heart and mouth all that happens at the altar. Further, you must pray with the priest the holy words said by him in the Name of Christ and which Christ says by him. You have to associate your heart with the holy feelings which are contained in these words and in this manner you ought to follow all that happens at the altar. When acting in this way, you have prayed Holy Mass"

from Pope St. Pius X.

I've wondered why Bishops are so opposed to the older form of liturgy. Unfortunately I think it has to do with Catholicism itself. The Latin Mass appears to be able to convey the truths of the faith easier.

I think that the Latin Mass has become a symbol of conservative Catholicism. So some liberal Bishops oppose the Latin Mass only because they favor a more liberal version of Catholicism. I think that some conservatives favor the Latin Mass for much the same reason, as a symbol of conservativism.
