I just moved to Central Florida and it is so sad to see how few Catholic Churches offer the “Tridentine Mass”. The churches that offer it are at least 30 minutes away and those churches offer the TLM in the early afternoon. Why do so few churches offer it and why the odd hours? A part of me thinks that it’s a way to discourage people from attending so that they could stop offering it.
I am now faced with either drive over 30 minutes to one of the Churches that offers the TLM or attend a Church that offers the “Novus Ordo” and start working on getting permission from the local Priest or Bishop to offer it at my local Church. This is so frustrating, I will have to do the latter.
I feel that we must work together to bring back the “Tridentine Mass” so that every Catholic Church, in every state, can have at least one TLM Mass on Sundays and at a normal time.
My plan is to follow the instructions on the link I included below.
