Peace be with all! or Pacis exsisto per totus!
For those that are following this, here is the Mass in Latin[/url:ongpizc0]and an update on the upcoming conference in St. Louis[/url:ongpizc0]. Many may or may not be aware that there are two movements in the USA concerning the Mass:
1. New translations, focused more on a more accurate translation from Latin.
2. A return to a Latin Mass.
I am in support of a return to Latin. But I am a traditionalist. ” title=”Smile” />

I’m fine with it as it is, but I will go along with whatever the current norm is. I shall submit. ” title=”Smile” />July 6, 2006 at 2:21 pm #6649
[color=darkblue:n0i2zpvh]I personally like the Latin. It just sounds holy….
Isn’t it odd that when we had Mass in Latin people seemed to be better Cathecised. Or is this just my perception?[/color:n0i2zpvh]July 6, 2006 at 2:28 pm #6651

Quite an observation for someone who wasn’t even alive then!
In my opinion there seems to be this glory years nostalgia where everything so much better back in the old days. [i:31t1rq5h]Were[/i:31t1rq5h] people better catechized or did society embrace traditional values moreso than now?July 6, 2006 at 9:31 pm #6654
I prefer an updated liturgy in the vernacular but I would welcome a return to Latin as well.July 7, 2006 at 2:27 pm #6656

I remember back in 1958 when I become a Catholic (was a Lutheran before that)and we all had missal’s and the priest would say the mass with his back to the people(cause alter was set back)and of course there was the communion rail.I myself would like to see return of Latin mass,but I’m wondering about the younger sect(20 to 40 year old)who probably never heard a mass in Latin would it encourage them or turn some away?I don’t know.What every Catholic Church in U.S should do is have one mass in Latin.January 1, 2007 at 10:54 pm #7636
GIve me that O’le time Religion.
Latin for the Roman Rite
Church Slavonik for the Russian and Ukranian Rite
Syriac for the Maronite and Melekite Rites
etc, etc, etc…
