Concerning Indult Tridentine Masses

Is it true that Pope Benedict the XVI approved an Indult for the Tridentine Mass, and I hope that if it is, it will come near to me. Also, does anyone know of any Indult Tridentine Masses within the Pittsburgh Diocese?:confused:

This is what I got off of masstimes.org:

dumspirospero,

you’re such a kidder. :rolleyes:

raven,

what you probably heard is that B16 is, possibly, going to issue a motu proprio that lowers restrictions on the Tridentine Mass. JPII allowed the TLM (Traditional Latin Mass) by indult over a decade ago. TLMs are “legal” in approved parishes already. B16 would simply be expanding this effort initiated by JPII. :slight_smile:

You have one of the most magnificent TLM church’s in the world.
Even if you are not of the Trad mind, going to a high Mass there is worth the experience.
BTW:
That church was once marked for demolition to clear the way for an expressway that ended up going near to it.
It was saved by a Secular Historic Preservation Society and a sympathetic Court Judge. TBTG

Is there a TLM in Pittsburgh? Is there EVER!

We have a guy at my church who never shuts up about the beautiful Tridentine Mass up there. I hear they have High Mass every single Sunday. Lucky them (And you).

(Perhaps someone else will name the church. I have seen pictures, and it is quite large and quite pretty).

I live just far away from there, that I couldn’t find it due to my bad direction/navigation skills. Only my father could probably help me find it. And he rarely goes to mass as it is. :frowning:
