I think Hemrick has a good point. I would be interested to hear from Keeting and others, the reasons why your Church wants to re-instate this Latin mass, which hardly anyone even understands? it would be kind of like giving my 13 year old a King James Bible. he wouldn't exactly know what to do with it!

How do Catholics fulfill the following Scripture with a Mass they do not understand what is being said?
Well let's hope that there will be missals with the translations if I should ever visit a TLM. The mass is pretty universal so they are not changing the meanings. We are familiar with it unlike your 13 year old the bible.

If you should come into a church not knowing the mass and it is in latin you should look at a missal and there is a lot of repeat so you would pick it up easy.

We are to be charitable so actions can speak as loud as words.

If someone needs a cup of water or bowl of food would you hand him a bible? The name of Jesus Christ is pretty well known
