This is what I am saying:
Once I began coming back to the Church, I went to my local parish. It is your typical NO parish including but not limited to percussion instruments, guitars, piano, clapping, hand-holding, and dancing. I didn’t know any better back then.
Then I started getting closer to tradition, and became an avid Latin Mass supporter. There is only one Latin Mass in the diocese, which is pretty much secluded from society (I honestly think the bishop did this on purpose the smart man haha). So there is no way it could have any influence whatsoever.
Now, considering the idea that many of us would like to get the Latin Mass more available and Masses to be more reverent, doesn’t it do harm to only go to the one secluded Latin Mass parish within 80 miles? Isn’t it better to try and change things in our local parishes?
I know that for many it isn’t this easy. I am very blessed to have a pastor at my local parish (though not necessarily a congregation) which is very open to the idea. But even if it isn’t the case, setting up a group of 4-5 people is all it takes. Once this is done, even the priest can’t stop you. If they refuse, you may go to the bishop who will usually handle the problem. If the bishop doesn’t help, you are allowed to go to Ecclesia Dei, and so forth. So all I’m saying, is that it is not impossible.
If people want Latin Masses and reverence, doesn’t it take more action at the parish level, rather than simply going to the one available every Sunday and then coming to CAF to complain?
