The logic is a little wrong… You assumed that each TLM is celebrated only once on sunday… This may not be true ( mine has two masses per sunday one high and one low)
Actually, I was being generous. Most TLM’s are only celebrated once or twice a month. I just learned from Caesar on another thread that he can only attend once a month.
Why is it so difficult to believe that the bishops have honestly considered many factors that are beyond our consideration in this matter?
“3…Indults are placed in questionable neighborhoods and poor times.”
Do you think it is appropriate for a bishop to assign a highly-attended mass time for a TLM liturgy, when very few would attend?
The only hope I see is for TLM devotees to get a written petition showing a decidedly large number of people who are interested and would regularly attend this liturgy. My own suspicions are that the percentage of signers would be as minimal as 5%, if that many, though I could be wrong. I’m going on the figure of less than half of 1% of masses in my previous post, and wondering how full these liturgies are.
Until the bishops see a great demand for this liturgy, I doubt that even the Motu Proprio expected from Pope Benedict will make much difference.
That is discouraging, I realize, but I don’t know how else to help you folks. I pray you will consider that the bishops are Shepherds of God, and are not just being nasty for contrariness’ sake.
