What is your Diocese Doing About the 1962 Latin Mass? -- Summorum Pontificum

Updated September 21, 2007

Father "Z", source of all things properly translated on the Internet has been quite busy analyzing (or, fisking, which is analyzing with lots of constructive criticism and complaining, too) the reports coming from the various dioceses and publications around the world.

I have put together a table of his posts that he has done so far relating to American dioceses. I was going to rate both the dioceses and the newspapers on a three point scale, ABC, but because the Boston Globe happens to exist, I have needed to add a couple more lower grades for their category. The grades indicate how approving the diocese or newspaper is of the Pope's Motus Proprio. The Globe is a very low grader and is not particularly fond of the Church.

I've also added at the end of the list of dioceses some interesting posts that Father Z has done relating to resources for the proper celebration of the Extraordinary Use Mass.

Most of you probably figure that I am raring to go with the first 1962 Mass that comes my way. That is not the case. Most of all, I want a reverent Mass. I have been at too many where outrageous violations of the General Instructions of the Roman Missal are regularly encountered.

Too many priests when celebrating the Novus Ordo Mass fall prey to the seductive entrapments of Pride, Performance and Entertainment. Their feelings of pride in their personal independence change the re-creation of the Sacrifice of Our Lord on Calvary into an acting performance designed not for Worship and Thanksgiving, but to entertain a congregation who came for a show.

But I have found that the greatest asset of the Novus Ordo Vatican II Mass that we regularly have in English, when it is well celebrated, is the fact that the readings (First and Second Readings and the Psalms) have been greatly expanded and many more are taken from the Old Testament, the section of the Bible that many Catholics like myself haven't read much of outside of the Book of Genesis.

My perfect world would be a Mass in Latin, using a solid translation with the readings in English and with Gregorian Chant accompaniment. Any music with music or lyrics created after 1945 would be specifically prohibited.
