If majority of our priests doesn’t know Latin, then we are really in trouble. Just think of it, our beloved priests cannot even speak and understand the official language of the Church. I thought Latin is still being taught in seminaries even though the Mass is said in vernacular.
With regards to the laity not being able to understand Latin Mass argument, I think it is every Catholic’s responsibility to study the theology and the language of the TLM. Though not everybody has the opportunity to study in a Catholic school, I believe we can compensate it by organizing lectures regarding the theology behind the TLM so that many people will appreciate it. Even though TLM has been around for centuries, it will be NEW to our generation, hence, our beloved bishops are hesitant as they are afraid that they will loose our generation because we do not understand the language nor the theology behind TLM.
This generation has the time for everything that is entertaining: movies, sports, tv shows, night outs, ipods, etc. I think this generation should spare some time learning Latin and the TLM.
It will also help if our beloved bishops would make it mandatory for Catholic schools to give Latin courses. Again, think of it, Catholic schools ignorant of the language of the Catholic Church.
