A Normal Occurence

I was going to post the entire address of his Eminence Cardinal Castrillion Hoyos to the Latin mass Society of England and Wales, but I thought I would keep it simple and post just the meat and potatoes:

"Let me say this plainly: the Holy Father wants the ancient use of the Mass to become a normal occurrence in the liturgical life of the Church so that all of Christ’s faithful – young and old – can become familiar with the older rites and draw from their tangible beauty and transcendence."

Makes you smile, don't it? Maybe not the guitar strumming, Haugen/Haas lovin', omigod the priest turned his back on me liberals, but the rest of us, oh yes!

How sweet it is.
