Dear brothers and sisters in Christ,
I finally received, last night!, my first Traditional Missal. What a joy!!! Being used to the LOTH (revised), it was not such a stretch to figure out the way the Missal is laid out, and the direcions themselves in the Missal are quite good.
I had no problems finding my place in the Order of the Mass, or in the Readings. Only my second TLM today, and already I feel like a pro. I’m home!
And you guys are right!!! It seemed like a million OT readings!! What Joy!
I DO have to work on my Latin pronunciation, though. A couple of times, it seemed as if I finished about 9 syllable behind everyone else!!! :o
I feel so happy and close to Jesus today. And I want to thank you, my brothers and my sisters, for helping me along!!!
God bless you, and our Holy Father, Pope Benedict XVI,
