So I went to confession at my regular spot…an Italian church, not my parish.
I remember as a child this parish would sometimes pray the Novus Ordo in Latin.
Well, as I was leaving the church, I noticed in the narthex, on a table, a petition signature sheet. Low and behold, take a guess what it was…
Yep, you got it. A petition for the Tridentine mass. Now I’m not a registered parishoner of this parish, and couldn’t be for at least a few more years due to a commitment to my parish’s council, but I signed my name. As it is right now, I often attend the NO at my parish and then head across town to the TLM. If this parish offers the Tridentine, my life will be so much easier.
I think the petition was up to about 60 people. And I’m pretty sure the petition is sponsored by the parish, not some rogue traditionalist Catholics (cough, cough).
Please say a prayer that this parish starts offering the Extraordinary Form.
