In the previous blog post, I wrote what was possibly the best form of defense for the Latin Mass, that is because I displayed what saints and other distinct Catholics said about it. Today I would like to offer my view of the Mass, just one day after being part of it. The first thing … More Defending the Tridentine Mass
