In todays Detroit Free Press, the return of the Tridentine Mass to the Detroit archdiocese at St Josaphat church was the subject of an article. freep.com/news/religion/cath3_20040803.htm A Rev. Thomas Reese, editor of America Magazine in New York City, states that “The hope is that this mass eventually will fade away” and that the indult is provided for older people who still feel an attachment to this form of the mass, too much success would spoil this venture.
Why is it a problem for younger people to prefer the TLM? The Mass being permitted in hope that it fades away is alarming as well, I hope that that is not the position of those at St Josaphat. With all the well documented problems with liturgical abuses in the NO, why is it that the reverent TLM is viewed as a problem?
