A Candidate in RCIA asked a nun in his parish about the ‘old’ Latin Mass he has heard about and if it was okay for him to attend one. She told him it was ‘discouraged’.
He didn’t pursue the subject with her (‘why’, ‘by whom’).
This may be true ‘personally’ for her and the pastor, but it does not sound like an accurate statement as far as Rome goes, or even some of our U.S. Bishops. While I don’t remember ever reading anything from Rome saying attending the TLM was ‘encouraged’, I certainly don’t remember reading anything saying it was ‘discouraged’. Am I correct?
Can you guys help me with some facts about the TLM: What has Rome said, what about our American Bishops, is it’s offering on the rise, etc. I’d like to be able to give him the facts about this.
