I’d like to know how the Motu Proprio was communicated in your diocese.
When the MP came out, I thought that on 9/14 we would have an TLM’s offered in at least the Cathedral(s), and in some parishes. I thought that there would be articles in the diocesan newspaper in the 2 months leading up to the MP, to get the faithful stirred up, or at least curious, about TLM and that by offering TLM some would come and see and believe.
Unfortunately, that was not the case. There was a statement in our diocesan newspaper right after the MP came out, and that is the last communication in the diocese on the MP. I searched my parish’s bulletins and nothing. Went to other parishes in the county – nothing. Went to look @ bulletins in adjoining counties – still nothing.
So, am I crazy, or does it seem that if bishops and pastors ignore the MP, people will not ask for the MP (do they even know it exists?), and, because nobody is asking for it, parishes do not have to offer TLM?
So, how is it out in the rest of North America?
