Rubbish in the NYT

I mean, not that it’s a terrible surprise, but anyway.

“Clueless in New York” rails on Latin (apparently oblivious to what SumPon really means):

Fr. Fox said it well somewhere that it's NOT about Latin, it's about how you approach the Mass. Some people just have an aversion to treating the Mass as if it's actually something important and oppose anything supporting that, whether Latin, chant, or bells (at my parish we actually have complaints about the use of BELLS)

Well, the Low Mass can be a pretty poor expression of Catholic spirituality. That's not a rubbish opinion.

I think the motu would have been improved by freeing only the High Mass and abolishing the Low.

The Low Mass is necessary for private Masses, though. I agree. The High Mass is the ideal.
