Latin Mass

Traditional Latin Mass, Tridentine Mass, Motu Proprio

A cartoon on the subject of the anticipation of the lifting of restrictions on the traditional Tridentine Mass, better known as the 'Latin' Mass. The Latin Mass wouldn't replace the post Vatican II Mass-it's just that the lifting of restrictions (this one would be by personal accord of the Pope himself; a Motu Proprio) would allow priests to hold the mass without the prior approval of their local bishop, which should widen its usage. The word in the 'street' is that Pope Benedict's papal rescript allowing the restoration of the Latin Mass is on the way, but we're all still waiting. And waiting. And waiting.
