I belong to a Faith group that meets monthly and discuss somewhat random topics about our Catholic faith. We’re fortunate enough to have a priest who joins us and is able to give some guidance/structure to our conversations.
This month the meeting is at our house and as the host couple, I thought discussing the TLM would be interesting.
